Shelving Our Can of Whoop … Obama

By pursuing love and popularity, President Obama has dashed our foreign policy and embraced sheepish naivety. He’s created a rise in hate and anti-American feelings in a Middle East set ablaze. In Egypt and Libya, he attempted purchasing “allies” in the Muslim Brotherhood—an organization with oft-cited connections to terrorist groups.
Quoting his mother at the 2012 Republican Convention, Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) said:
“… [T]here would be times in your life when you have to choose between being loved and being respected. She said to always pick being respected, that love without respect was always fleeting ….”
Our President has chosen that which is fleeting. He chose coolness, the lessening of America’s leadership prowess, and the dampening of our excellence, innovation and position on the world stage. More than anything, he squandered our best tool: peace through strength.
In 2009, President Obama largely defined his Middle East foreign policy in his speech at Cairo University in Egypt. He said:
“I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles – principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

The speech encapsulated themes of “we’re all in this together” and foolish dreams of a world without nuclear weapons. Overall, it represented apology and appeasement.
More than anything, the Cairo address lacked a message of leadership. For example, he said, “America will align our policies with those who pursue peace … [italics added].” Instead of carrying the big stick—not being afraid to use it—the President essentially communicated that America will jump on the bandwagon of anybody who leads for peace. He simply refused to demand respect.
Fast forward. In 2011, the U.S. provided $25 million in non-lethal support to rebels seeking to overthrow Libyan dictator, Muammar Gaddafi. Our military intervention cost an estimated $896 million. Worse, the rebels admitted that some fighters had links to al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood now runs the new government.
In 2012, the U.S. gave $1.5 billion in military and economic aid to Egypt’s transition. Following Hosni Mubarak, Mohamed Morsi (also from the Muslim Brotherhood) took over as the nation’s president.
So do we have the “new beginning” our President spoke of? How about the “mutual respect”? On the eleventh anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, radicals assaulted our Libyan Embassy—killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others. They struck with rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and AK-47s. It was calculated and deliberate.

In the immediate aftermath, the President and his national security team pandered—blaming the spontaneous airing of a “movie” poking fun at the prophet Mohammed. The administration’s conclusion was that the attack simply arose out of a protest over the video. Right, because most protestors show up with rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and AKs.
The President’s actual response was worse than the pandering. He said, “While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.”
Translation: “You bad, bad ‘protestors.’ We condemn your actions (whatever that means). But just in case you were upset about that ‘movie’ which was created under our Constitutional Right to Freedom of Expression here in the United States, we’re sorry.” I’m just sure that radical Islamists everywhere are trembling at the sound of his voice.
On Twitter, columnist Matt Barber put it this way: “Under Reagan, there’d now be a 15 block crater where the Libyan Embassy used to be. Under Obama, we apologize to our enemies #Weakness.”
More recently, the United Nations welcomed leaders from around the world and specifically, the Middle East. In an interview with the New York Times, Egypt’s President Morsi indicated he wouldn’t be as compliant as former President Mubarak when working with the U.S. So much for our $1.5 billion to support an “ally’s” transition. By the way, we’re cutting them another check for $450 million.

As the Middle East burns, our President is absent. His weakness and refusal to lead on a message of peace through strength (in a way only America can) has emboldened radical Islamists. And though a president’s first responsibility is to protect the American People, President Obama has eroded our deterrent effect and ability to command respect.

Obamacare on 'fast track' back to Supreme Court

WND Exclusive

The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the individual mandate within the Obama health-care law seemed to be the last word in a fierce legal fight.
But on Monday, the Supreme Court ordered the Justice Department to respond to a suit filed by Liberty Counsel on behalf of Liberty University. The school contends both the individual and employer mandates are unconstitutional on the grounds that they infringe upon the freedom of religious expression.

The case was filed in March of 2010 on the very same day President Obama signed the bill into law. It’s been stalled because a federal appeals court ruled that the suit could not proceed because no one had been penalized or taxed yet through the mandates. The recent Supreme Court decision essentially struck down that ruling.
Liberty Counsel Chairman Mathew Staver says no court has ever ruled on the constitutionality of the employer mandate or the religious freedom concerns. Abortion funding is at the heart of the contention that the mandates violate the right to religious expression — something Staver says he saw right away but others didn’t notice until the new government rules on mandatory contraception coverage.
The Obama administration insists there is no taxpayer funding of abortion in the laws but Staver pinpoints why he believes that position is patently false.

“It funds it in two ways,” said Staver. “First all, for the individual, for the first time in history, it requires each individual to pay a particular fee and that goes directly into an abortion fund and that fund funds abortion. This fee doesn’t go into a general fund, some of which funds other surgeries or medical treatment, some of which might fund abortion. No, this goes into a specific fund that funds abortion. (It’s the) very first time in history you can trace the dollar to the actual abortion.”
Staver says that provision forces individuals and business leaders to subsidize something they vehemently oppose.
“It requires religious employers, and other employers but certainly religious employers to also fund abortion as well,” he said. “And for Liberty University, a Christian university, and for others that’s simply a line we can’t cross. That is a direct collision with the free exercise of religion.” Staver says an ultimate victory in this case could devastate Obamacare — especially if the individual mandate goes down.
“It could ultimately make a big hole in the bottom of the Obamacare boat or completely torpedo it and sink it altogether.”



Ollie North is one of the most respected journalists and war-correspondents out there. He is one of the few people who has regularly gone out to the far reaches of Afghanistan to report on the good work our troops have done there. He is the type of journalist who is willing to leave the comfort of a well-defended base in order to get the real story.

When our Fox News team left for Afghanistan last week, there was a palpable sense of imminent calamity in the air. Gloom and doom news from here is now a staple in our so-called mainstream media. Reports of “green on blue” or “insider” attacks by our Afghan allies against American and NATO troops are depicted as a sure sign of mission failure, and portent of worse to come. Commentaries, columns and “analysis” from “experts” urging our political and military leaders to “get out now” routinely grace our print and broadcast outlets. The terms “betrayed,” “cut our losses” and “minimize failure” appear regularly in the press and “lost cause” is now the media watchword for Afghanistan.

Defeatism of this sort is nothing new.

According to Ollie North, Obama is pursuing defeatism in Afghanistan, and the media is helping him create the impression that there is nothing left to do but accept defeat and pull out. Our troops feel betrayed by politicians who sent them to Afghanistan with a mission, but won't let them accomplish it!

According to the MSM, green on blue attacks compelled U.S. troops to cease accompanying Afghan security forces on missions and to halt all training. That simply isn’t true.

This column is being written on outposts where we are surrounded and vastly outnumbered by well-armed Afghan soldiers, police, commandos and Special Forces. We have already accompanied them on a half-dozen operations. The distrust and disdain being reported in our media and on various blogs simply isn’t evident.

Our press and politicians may be defeatists, but the young American and Afghan troops we’re with are not. When I asked for a single word to define them, the response was “resilient.”

Our troops don't like this defeatist attitude coming from the President and so many in the media here at home. They want to finish the mission and they have the fortitude and the will to do it - but our politicians have to let them fight without tying their hands, and we have to show our support!

Obama Lost So Badly Media Couldn't Spin It....But Guess What's Next

By Brent Bozell

As even former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw acknowledged today, liberal journalists were loaded and ready to pronounce this election over and Romney's campaign dead after the first debate: “If it had been Romney performing like the president last night, it would have been over.” But the beating Obama received last night was so complete that virtually no one (the New York Times excepted, as usual) denied it.
But how did they report Obama lost? Therein lies the rub: they -- as well as Democratic operatives -- are pushing the spin that this was all about style and presentation. Obama was "flat," "lackluster," "not himself," and “not firing on all cylinders.” In other words, Obama wasn't Obama last night. Some are going further, pushing the narrative that Romney was somehow mean-spirited and even deceptive in his presentation
This analysis denies reality. Obama lost on style, to be sure. More importantly, much more importantly, he lost on content. Romney crushed him. For the first time in his political career Obama a) had to defend his record and b) had no one running interference on his behalf. Romney as challenger had a seemingly endless list of particulars to choose from and did so in a devastating manner. That, that was the damage done to Obama.

The media's refusal to focus on this all-important element is the ultimate spin control, perhaps a form of spin control heretofore unknown: spin by omission. Like so many news reports they've refused to run this year if they hurt the re-elect Obama narrative, now they're refusing to discuss the real takeaway from last night's debate because it is devastating to the incumbent.
Instead it's all about style, and that "lackluster" performance. To what end? Obama will come out in the next debate and throw some roundhouses. It doesn't matter if they don't connect. It doesn't matter if they're below the belt. It doesn't matter if Romney counter-punches and connects. When it's all over the media spin will be immediate. "He's back!" "Obama regained his stride!" "Obama back in control!" "On top of his game!"
That script is already written. Bank on it.

Video: Next gen pleads, save our country!

by Drew Zahn 

A group of California teenagers have created a video called “Voices Without a Vote,” pleading with those who can vote in November to elect leaders who defend the U.S. Constitution and govern according to its principles.
“I’m not old enough to vote … but if I could,” the teens in the video state, “I would elect people who stand up for the blueprint of this country, people who will protect our history, our culture, our language and our borders, men and women who would uphold the separation of powers, who listen to the people, candidates who understand the Declaration of Independence, representatives [who] will protect and uphold the Constitution of the United States.”
The YouTube video, which has already been seen by hundreds of thousands of viewers, was created by a nonprofit organization called im2morro (“I’m tomorrow”), which clarifies on its website: “We don’t think of ourselves as ‘Republicans,’ ‘Democrats’ or ‘Libertarians.’ We’re Americans, independent thinkers who believe in the framework of ideals that have formed and guided this great nation for over 200 years.”
Audrea Taylor, 17, president and co-founder of im2morro, told WND her organization enlisted help from film students at John Paul the Great University in San Diego to make the video and hopes that it will only be one of many efforts to “communicate to our generation, in the way we speak, through videos and social media.”

“I hope that the video moves people to focus on the principles our nation was founded upon: life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, a free market, personal responsibility,” Taylor said. “I want my generation to start owning their future, and part of that is voting.”
The video specifically calls for electing leaders who will protect First Amendment rights, the Second and Tenth Amendments and religious liberty. It quotes the Declaration of Independence’s insistence that certain unalienable rights are “endowed by our Creator.”
The video also includes some concrete and contemporary examples of the federal government exceeding its constitutionally enumerated powers: “I don’t need the government telling me what lunch to eat, what toilet to flush. I don’t need the government telling me to drive an electric car, forcing me to buy health insurance. I don’t need government giving guns to Mexican drug lords.”
It also includes a zinger of a line, pointed at those who have voted for America’s current crop of leaders: “Your temporary politicians strapped us with 16 trillion dollars in national debt. Fix it.”
Taylor told WND the idea for im2morro began in 2008, when she visited the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., and noticed far too few young people in the crowd.
“Who here is representing my generation?” she asked.
The “Voices Without a Vote” video is part of the answer that question.
“Please vote for patriots in the spirit of the Founders – patriots, candidates, who will restore constitutional America,” the teens on the video, including Taylor, plead. “Liberty is never more than one generation from extinction, and we are that generation.”

Michael Savage says he's set to return

WND Exclusive
Promising “the most powerful announcement in modern radio history,” talk-host Michael Savage says he hopes to be back behind his microphone within two weeks.
As WND reported, Savage announced Sept. 27 he won his federal lawsuit against his syndicator, Talk Radio Network, via arbitration, which makes him a free agent.
In a message on his website posted today, Savage says he has been “very busily meeting with many interested parties over the past week.”
“Many would like to partner with me,” he writes, “and I would like to thank you, my avid Savage listener and website reader, for your incredible level of support.”
“While I cannot divulge my decision at this time,” he says, “I can say I hope to be back within two weeks with and with the most powerful announcement in modern radio history.”

Last week, Savage’s lawyer, Daniel Horowitz, told WND that Savage, the No. 3-ranked talk-radio host, was already talking to top names in the business within hours of the announcement that he was free from TRN.
The arbitration panel awarded Savage more than $900,000 and ordered TRN to turn over to him all archived tapes and other recordings of his show.
Just days after he ended his relationship with TRN, WND reported, his “Savage Nation” was ranked the No. 1 talk-radio show on the Internet for the third quarter.
After consistently winning the No. 2 spot, Savage surpassed Rush Limbaugh on the Internet, according to
“We have watched Michael consistently grow his audience over the last several quarters,” said in its report of the top 25 shows on the ‘Net. “All of his numbers are way up, especially via mobile and social radio.”
The survey period was July to Sept. 27. said all of the metrics collected to produce its top 25 report are via Internet streaming through its new cloud-based server, gadgets, iPhone app and “click-to-listen” links via social networks.

Judge tells transit agency to post anti-jihad message

WND Exclusive
A judge in Washington, D.C., ruled today that a “heckler’s veto” of pro-Israel ads that already have appeared in San Francisco and New York cannot be used to censor the message in Washington.
The judge granted a request by the American Freedom Law Center for an injunction to halt the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority censorship of a pro-Israel/anti-jihad bus advertisement.
The judge ordered the agency display the ads no later than 5 p.m. on October 8, 2012.
Judge Rosemary M. Collyer granted the request after AFLC co-founder and senior counsel Robert Muise presented a compelling case in which he argued that the WMATA’s refusal to run the advertisement out of a vague and speculative fear of Muslim mob violence violates AFLC’s clients’ First Amendment right to freedom of speech.
Muise of the American Freedom Law Center is representing the ad sponsors, Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch who are working together under the banner of the Freedom Defense Initiative.

“Today, Judge Collyer affirmed that our fundamental right to freedom of speech cannot be suppressed by mob rule. This is not only a victory for our clients, but it is a clear victory for all freedom-loving Americans.”
It was back on Sept. 18 when the agency decided to delay running a pro-Israel/anti-jihad advertisement on its metro system until some “future date” due to alleged concerns about “the situations happening around the world,” “world events,” and the “security and safety” of its passengers.
Muise explained the WMATA’s decision was based in response to the ongoing violence in Egypt, Libya, and elsewhere in an alleged protest of free speech in the United States that is critical of Islam.
AFLC challenged the censorship.
The victory follows on the heels of a New York federal judge ordering New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority to display the same advertisement after the MTA had initially refused to run it in September 2011, claiming that the advertisement violated the MTA’s policy against displaying “images or information that demean an individual or group of individuals on account of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, gender, age, disability or sexual orientation.”
The ad states, “In Any War Between the Civilized Man and the Savage, Support the Civilized Man. Support Israel, Defeat Jihad.”

The ad previously has raised a ruckus on the West Coast, where San Francisco transit officials accompanied it with a disclaimer.
Muise said earlier, “The WMATA does not want to display a message that it deems to be critical of Islam, critical of jihad, or supportive of Israel in light of the current ‘world events.’ However, it is precisely because of the current political situation unfolding in Egypt, Libya, and elsewhere that FDI should be permitted to express its message, and any delay amounts to government censorship of speech. Because FDI’s speech is core political speech, it should be accorded the greatest protection under the First Amendment.”
The transit agency already leases space for ads that are commercial, noncommercial, public service, public-issue, political and religious. For example, it has posted the message, “End U.S. military aid to Israel.”
A court hearing was held Thursday.
AFLC co-founder David Yerushalmi said: “Under the First Amendment, speech cannot be punished or banned simply because it might offend a hostile mob. The WMATA’s speech restriction is based on the perceived negative response that FDI’s message might receive from certain viewers based on its content and viewpoint. However, a viewer’s reaction to speech is not a content-neutral basis for regulation. This is known as a ‘heckler’s veto,’ which is impermissible under the First Amendment.”
The organizations just finished a similar fight in New York, where a federal judge ruled free speech requires the transit authority to display the ads, just as it has displayed other ads.

When the ad appeared there, a pro-Islamic activist who has worked for MSNBC was arrested for vandalizing a poster with spray paint.
Mona Eltahawy was charged with criminal mischief after spray painting a defender of freedom who caught her in the act of vandalizing one of the pro-Israel ads.

Sen. Coburn ducks on birth certificate promise

by Jerome R. Corsi 

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., appears to dodging a campaign promise he made to look into evidence President Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery.
In a letter to a constituent dated Oct. 2, Coburn said his staff had reached out to the office of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Phoenix after making a promise to tea-party activist Miki Booth at an Aug. 7 town hall appearance in Claremore, Okla. At the campaign event, Booth was seen on video confronting the senator about a letter she had written to him.
“My staff has reached out to Sheriff Arpaio’s office,” Coburn wrote in the constituent letter. “However, I have yet to be presented any credible evidence to demonstrate President Obama was not born in Hawaii.”
From there, Coburn cited Obama being placed on state ballots for president as proof Obama’s birth certificate is genuine.
“Furthermore, all 50 states saw fit to put Mr. Obama on their ballots in 2008 and again in 2012,” Coburn wrote. “This includes Arizona, which was recently provided verification of President Obama’s birth by Hawaii. I remain open to hearing and reviewing any supporting evidence.

However, Mike Zullo, lead investigator for Sheriff Arpaio’s law enforcement investigation into Obama’s eligibility, insists Coburn has yet to see the evidence his team has uncovered indicating the document the White House posted as Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery.
“I was initially contacted by Ken Ashton, an aide to Sen. Coburn in Sen. Coburn’s Washington office, on Sept. 4,” Zullo explained to WND. “I provided Ashton at his request, an overview of the sheriff’s investigation, focusing on the document fraud.”
Coburn’s office has not replied to WND’s request for comment.
Zullo told WND he emphasized to Ashton the sheriff was not investigating the president but the long-form birth certificate released by the White House April 27, 2011, to determine if that document was legitimate.
“I told Ashton that it would be appropriate for Sen. Coburn to contact Sheriff Arpaio directly to fulfill the commitment Coburn had made to his constituents,” Zullo said. “I explained Sheriff Arpaio was prepared and looking forward to answering any questions Coburn might have.”

Zullo documented his discussion with Ashton in an internal memo sent to Arpaio’s office Sept. 4. Zullo told Arpaio that he expected Coburn would contact the sheriff to request access to the evidence after Ashton and Coburn had an opportunity to study the overview.
Two weeks later, Zullo received a second phone call from Ashton in which Ashton seemed intent to emphasize the fact that he had called Arpaio’s office Sept. 4 in his capacity as an investigative aide to Coburn.
“I told Ashton that Coburn should speak directly to Sheriff Arpaio, because the sheriff had to make the decision to release evidence from the investigation,” Zullo recalled.
“I specifically pointed out to Ashton he would not be able to use his phone call to me as a substitute for Sen. Coburn talking directly to Sheriff Arpaio.”
Zullo told WND he felt Ashton’s second phone call was disingenuous, almost as if Ashton wanted Zullo to agree to a cover story.
“At the conclusion of the phone call, I felt Coburn’s office was attempting to use Ashton’s phone call as evidence that Coburn contacted the sheriff’s office,” Zullo said, “when the truth is Coburn never contacted Sheriff Arpaio, and Coburn never requested any evidence be provided to him for his inspection.”

Zullo said the episode was typical of the repeated frustrations the sheriff has experienced trying to get Congress to look at the birth certificate evidence.
“Ashton was trying to create the illusion that somehow the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office had not provided Sen. Coburn with any credible evidentiary information, even though Ashton never requested to see the evidence,” Zullo said.
“Even if Ashton had requested to see the evidence, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office would not blindly send out the evidence without first requiring Sen. Coburn to talk with the sheriff so the sheriff could make a determination whether or not it was appropriate to release the evidence to the senator’s office.”
Zullo’s final conclusion was that Coburn’s office was just engaging in politicking, and Ashton only wanted to create “the illusion the evidence had been examined.”
“The truth appears to be that Sen. Coburn has no serious interest in conducting an honest evaluation of whether or not Obama’s birth certificate is genuine, or the computer-generated forgery we have concluded the document is,” Zullo said.

Americans' distrust of Obama birth story rises

by Jerome R. Corsi 

“The birthers aren’t going anywhere!”
So concludes MIT political science professor Adam J. Berinsky, who published Monday results from a YouGov survey of 1,000 Americans who were asked whether they believed Barack Obama was born in the United States.
According to the scientific poll, 73 percent of self-identified Republicans and 40 percent overall are either don’t believe Obama was born in the U.S. or are not sure.

For both Republicans and Americans overall, belief that Obama is foreign-born was at a high point in September, just 37 days before the Nov. 6 presidential election.
As seen in Table 1 for the full sample and in Table 2 for Republicans only, Berinsky’s conclusions were clear: The percentage of people who think Obama was not born in the United States has held steady throughout the year and perhaps even increased slightly.
“Birtherism is especially pronounced among Republicans,” Berinsky wrote. “Indeed, the level of birtherism among Republicans is the highest it has been this year.”

Writing in February, Berinsky noted Obama, since assuming the presidency, had been plagued by rumors that he is not a natural-born citizen and, as a result, is not eligible to serve as president under Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution.
“These rumors have shown a surprising resilience over the last four years,” Berinsky wrote. “In fact, polls conducted by numerous media organizations repeatedly demonstrated that a significant portion of the American public claimed that Obama was not born in the United States, while many others are not sure if he was.”
Berinsky noted the doubts about where Obama was born have persisted even after the White House released a computer PDF copy of Obama’s long-form birth certificate on April 27, 2011.
“Time and again, the Obama team tried to dispel the “birther” rumor,” he observed.
“During the 2008 presidential contest, Obama released a computer copy of his birth certificate on a campaign website, but it did not quell the controversy. In 2009, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, verified that Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born citizen. But still the rumors would not die.”
In July, Berinsky reported 20 percent of independent voters believe Obama is not a native born citizen, allowing him to conclude that birtherism “is not strictly a condition of the Republican Party.”

Jesse Jackson, Wright 'arranged' Obama marriage

by Jerome R. Corsi 

This is the second of a series of articles WND has developed from months of confidential in-person interviews with members of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago who have known Barack and Michelle Obama on a personal basis over many years. In the first story, members of the church claimed Barack Obama benefited from Wright’s “Down Low Club,” part of a documented underground subculture in which black men who engage in homosexual activity marry to maintain respectability in public. Because of the personal risk the sources perceived they were taking to speak candidly about the president and his family, their identities have been masked. 

As a young single woman, Michelle Robinson was a fixture in the home of civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, who along with Rev. Jeremiah Wright “arranged” her marriage to Barack Obama, according to sources in Chicago who know the couple.

“If you want to understand Michelle Obama, you’ve got to go back to Jesse Jackson,” a woman called “Robyn” for this article told WND.
Robyn, who spent several years working for Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition, explained to a WND investigator in Chicago that Michelle Obama “just about grew up in Jesse Jackson’s home.”
“Jesse should have charged her rent and board for the amount of time she spent in his home instead of her own,” she said.
Jackson’s daughter, Santita, is still one of Michelle’s best friends. Santita and Jesse Jr. call her “sis,” short for “sister.”
Santita Jackson said in an interview just before Obama took office in 2008 that she has known Michelle Obama since they car-pooled together as high school classmates. Santita was maid of honor at Michelle and Barack Obama’s wedding, and she is the godmother to the Obama’s older daughter, Malia.
Robyn also pointed out Jesse Jackson Jr., a Democratic Party member of the U.S. House from Illinois, served as the national co-chairman of Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
“It all relates back to Trinity and to the Jesse Jackson orbit of blacks here in Chicago who gave Obama legitimacy and helped him establish his identity as a black man,” Robyn explained.

“The political left wanted to push a black to the presidency, and the key operatives in the Democratic Party decided long ago it wouldn’t be Jesse Jackson (Sr.). Then Jesse wanted it to be his son, but Jesse Jr. has serious drug and mental problems that the world knows about now. These were also known about in the past, and Jesse Jr. was never going to be the black president. So, the political left then chose Obama.”
In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times in August, Sandi Jackson admitted her husband, Jesse Jr., was “completely debilitated by depression,” which has forced him to put his Washington home for sale to pay his medical bills, including his treatment at the Mayo Clinic. He has been absent from Congress since mid-June, putting his House seat at risk in the November election.

They met where?
Obama’s retelling of an event most spouses remember precisely for the rest of their lives has caused confusion. Exactly when and how did he first meet Michelle Robinson?
Before a speech at the New Economic School graduation in Moscow on July 7, 2009, Obama stated he first met Michelle in school.
“I don’t know if anybody else will meet their future wife or husband in class like I did, but I’m sure you’re all going to have wonderful careers,” he said, according to Newsweek.
The problem is that Michelle Obama earned her degree from Harvard Law School in 1988, and Obama did not arrive at Harvard Law School until that fall, graduating three years later in 1991.
The commonly accepted story is that they first met in Chicago in 1989, when Barack took a summer job as an intern at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin, and Michelle, who was employed as a lawyer at the firm, was assigned to be his mentor.
WND has reported Allen Hulton, the U.S. postal carrier who delivered mail to the parents of Weather Underground bomber Bill Ayers in a Chicago suburb, met Obama in the summer of 1989, while Obama was an intern at Sidley Austin.

In 1991, during their engagement to be married, top Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, then serving as the deputy chief of staff to Mayor Richard M. Daley, hired Michelle to a job in the mayor’s office.
“Michelle hated working for the city even more than she hated working at Sidley Austin,” Robyn told WND.
“At the law firm, she lasted so short of a time because they expected her to do work,” Robyn said. “At the City of Chicago, where she worked under Mayor Daley, Michelle had one of those ‘Jesse hires’ positions. These are patronage jobs where the recipients did nothing.”
Robyn claimed that while working for Daley, Michelle just collected a check, doing very little work.
“She sat at a desk and read the newspaper all day,” Robyn said. “Sometimes she read romance novel paperbacks. No one could say anything to her because she was a ‘Jesse hire.’ This meant if anyone did complain about her not working that Jesse Jackson would get mad at Daley over that, and there would be trouble.”
Robyn said Michelle was “essentially treated like she was Jesse’s daughter, and Michelle’s connections in Chicago were a key to Obama’s rise to power.”

Political connections played throughout Michelle’s young life in Chicago.
Her father, Fraser C. Robinson III, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in his 20s and eventually walked with the use of crutches, was a volunteer Democratic precinct captain in addition to his job in the boiler room at Chicago’s water purification plant.
As Democratic precinct captain, Robinson had power and influence, given his access to “street money” the Daley machine freely handed out at that time in Chicago’s South Side to make sure black voters turned out to vote for Democratic Party machine candidates.
The Chicago sources told WND the selection of Michelle Robinson for Obama was made by Jesse Jackson, and Jeremiah Wright agreed it would be a good combination.
“It all relates back to Trinity United and to the Jesse Jackson orbit of blacks here in Chicago who gave Obama legitimacy and helped him establish his identity as a black man ‘from Chicago,’” Robyn explained.
“Michelle came from a political family; she was intelligent even if she didn’t really like to work. Wright knew Obama was gay, but he needed the cover of a wife if he were to succeed in politics.”
A current member of Trinity church who has known the Obamas for 20 years, “Carolyn,” confirmed Trinity “helped a lot of blacks get successful and connected.”
“That’s what Wright did for Obama,” she claimed. “He connected Obama in the community, and he helped Obama hide his homosexuality.”

According to Robyn, Jackson explained to Michelle that she would live a life of luxury once Obama was president, and that she never again would have to worry about money.
“Michelle was nasty, and most straight guys would never be able to put up with her moods and temperament,” Robyn maintained. “But Obama really didn’t care. Michelle had the credentials and she looked the part. Obama wasn’t interested in her for sex.”
A source WND will identify as Hazel, a long-term member of the Trinity congregation, insisted Obama remained sexually involved with men after his marriage to Michelle.
“I remember being at this function at Reverend Wright’s house, one of the many parties Wright had, in 1996,” Hazel recalled.
“I went to the room where all the coats were on the bed, because I wanted to leave. I was surprised to find the light in the room was off and the coats were on the floor,” she said. “Then I realized there were two men hugging and kissing in there. One of those men was Obama. This was long before anybody knew Obama, before he became famous like he is today.”
Hazel has been telling this story in Chicago since 1996.

Cushy job
When Jarrett left Mayor Daley’s office to head Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development, she took Michelle with her.
Jarrett later became the chairwoman of the Chicago Medical Center, and Michelle again got “a cushy job at the Chicago Medical Center with a salary of $317,000,” as reported by Edward Klein on page 117 of his 2012 book “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House.”
New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor wrote in 2008 that Jarrett would have to be at the top of a list of people who helped Barack and Michelle Obama.
“Nearly two decades ago, Ms. Jarrett swept the young lawyers under her wing, introduced them to a wealthier and better-connected Chicago than their own, and eventually secured contacts and money essential to Mr. Obama’s long-shot Senate victory,” Kantor wrote.
Klein, in an interview with Fox News, described Jarrett as the “de facto” president of the United States, “the best friend of the first lady and soul mate of the president.”

October Surprise? Obama secret Iran deal cut

OpEd: Jack
Bet dollars to donuts it was Hillary Clinton and or Valerie Jarrett!

by Reza Kahlili 

Iran could announce a temporary halt to uranium enrichment before next month’s U.S. election in a move to save Barack Obama’s presidency, a source affiliated with high Iranian officials said today.
The source, who remains anonymous for security reasons, said a three-person delegation of the Obama administration led by a woman engaged in secret negotiations yesterday with a representative of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The delegation urged the Iranian leader to announce a halt to enrichment, even if temporary, before the Nov. 6 election, promising removal of some sanctions.
The source said the delegation warned that a Mitt Romney presidency would change the U.S. relationship with Iran regarding its nuclear program.
The U.S. representatives reminded the Iranians that President Obama has stood in front of Israel, preventing the Jewish state from attacking Iran over its illicit nuclear arms policy.
Yesterday’s meeting, which took place in Doha, Qatar, was coordinated by the Qatar monarchy, whose members attended at the request of the Obama administration.
Ali Akbar Velayati, the former Iranian foreign minister and current close adviser to the supreme leader on international affairs, secretly traveled to Qatar for the meeting. Velayati is wanted by Argentina for the Jewish community center bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994 that killed 85 people.

One Obama representative, the woman, who had met Velayati before, urged Velayati to announce a halt, even if it is only for a week or two, to uranium enrichment prior to the U.S. election, according to the source. The U.S. representatives promised the Obama administration quickly would remove some sanctions on the Iranian central bank and oil industry, with further collaboration after the election, the source said.
Yesterday’s secret meeting took place even as hundreds of merchants in Tehran marched on parliament to protest the collapsing Iranian currency and the Islamic regime’s financial support for the besieged Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad.
Riot police violently clamped down on black-market money changers while merchants in the sprawling bazaar closed their shops during the protest. With inflation soaring, Iranian merchants can’t sell their goods, for fear they won’t be able to restock their shelves.
Yesterday’s negotiation was an extension of secret negotiations begun in early January when, according to Iranian officials and a report by Fars
News Agency, Obama requested collaboration with the Islamic regime through three different channels. The channels were a letter to the supreme leader, a message to the Iranian U.N. delegate and a direct message through Swiss Ambassador Livia Leu Agosti in Tehran in a meeting with Iranian Foreign Ministry officials, who quoted a message from Obama.

The Obama message said: “I didn’t want to impose sanctions on your central bank, but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision.”
A unanimous U.S. Senate vote had approved strong sanctions against the Iranian central bank and oil industry, but with a veto threat by the president, the effective date of the implementation of the sanctions was delayed to July 1.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said yesterday in Kazakhstan that the sanctions can be lifted immediately if the regime meets its nuclear obligations. She blamed its leaders for the financial crisis and spreading protests and said U.S. policy only seeks to convince the regime to seriously negotiate over its uranium enrichment program.
The Islamic leaders face increasing challenges with the Iranian people, a majority of whom resent the regime and are once again gathering energy to confront it with the hope of achieving regime change and freedom and democracy.
Fox News has reported that Iranian authorities dispatched riot police to key locations in Tehran just within the last 24 hours because of the turmoil over the plunging value of the nation’s currency. Many shop owners were closed the day before, and trash bins were burned as citizens and security forces clashed. More than a dozen were “detained.”

In 2009, when Iranians came out by the millions demanding change and urging Obama to support them, the administration instead negotiated with the regime in the hope of reaching a solution over Iran’s nuclear program. Though the Islamic leaders promised to collaborate with the president once the masses were fully suppressed, the Iranian leaders announced that not only was the offer no longer acceptable but they had further progressed with their nuclear program by reaching a milestone of enriching uranium to the 20-percent level.
The Aug. 30 IAEA report showed Iran has doubled the number of centrifuges at its Fordow facility deep within a mountain to more than 2,000, and work continues unabated at the 20-percent enrichment level. Meanwhile, more than 10,000 centrifuges at the Natanz facility are enriching to the 3.5-percent level, with enough low-enriched uranium for six nuclear bombs should Iran decide to enrich further.

Nevada High Court Upholds ACORN Convictions

OpEd: Jack
Attention: Obama et al don't even try to cheat in Nevada this're are being watched!

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court has upheld felony convictions stemming from the group ACORN's voter registration practices.
A high court decision out Thursday says it's OK for Nevada to bar payments based on how many people someone registers or how many people of a particular party one registers.
The ruling stems from a 2008 case in which the community group ACORN hired people to register voters in Las Vegas. A Secretary of State investigation found a program called "blackjack" in which the group offered a $5 bonus if a canvasser registered 21 or more voters.
ACORN supervisor Amy Busefink pleaded an equivalent of no contest to two counts of conspiracy and was ordered to informal probation and community service.
She appealed, but the Nevada Supreme Court says state law is constitutional.

Teacher Likens Student's Romney Shirt to KKK Shirt

 This teacher needs to be discharged and  removed from ever working in a classroom again! #Fire

A Philadelphia high schooler says she was humiliated after her teacher told her to lose her Gov. Mitt Romney T-shirt comparing it to “wearing a KKK shirt.”
Samantha Pawlucy, a 16-year-old sophomore at Charles Carroll High School in the Port Richmond section of the city, says she wore a pink Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan T-shirt last Friday during the school's dress down day.
No one made an issue of Samantha’s political T-shirt until she got to geometry class.
"The teacher told me to get out of the classroom, I said no," Samantha said.
"She told me to take off my shirt and said that she has another one if I need one. And then the teacher asked me… 'are your parents Republican?' I said, 'I don't know.' She said that's like her wearing a KKK shirt."
Samantha was so embarrassed by the public criticism in front of her classmates that she told her parents she didn’t want to return to school.

Obama Wanted to Put bin Laden on Trial

via Newsmax

A new book says President Barack Obama hoped to put Osama bin Laden on trial, showing the U.S. commitment to due process under law, if the al-Qaida leader had surrendered during a U.S. raid in Pakistan last year.

In ‘‘The Finish,’’ journalist Mark Bowden quotes the president as saying he thought he would be in a strong political position to argue in favor of giving bin Laden the full rights of a criminal defendant if bin Laden went on trial for masterminding the Sept. 11 attacks.

But Bowden, who also wrote ‘‘Black Hawk Down’’ about the 1993 battle in Somalia where two helicopters were downed, killing 18 U.S. soldiers, says Obama expected bin Laden to go down fighting. A team of Navy SEALs raided bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011 and killed bin Laden.

The Associated Press purchased a copy of ‘‘The Finish,’’ which is due to come out Oct. 16, a few weeks before the presidential election. The revelation that Obama hoped to capture bin Laden may provide political fodder for Republicans who have criticized the Obama administration for trying to bring terrorists from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and overseas to trials in U.S. courts.

‘‘Frankly, my belief was if we had captured him, that I would be in a pretty strong position, politically, here, to argue that displaying due process and rule of law would be our best weapon against al-Qaida, in preventing him from appearing as a martyr,’’ Obama is quoted saying in an interview with Bowden.

Obama believed that affording terrorists ‘‘the full rights of criminal defendants would showcase America’s commitment to justice for even the worst of the worst,’’ Bowden writes.

Obama had expressed similar views as a presidential candidate.

U.S. officials have said the Navy team was ordered to capture bin Laden if he surrendered or kill him if he threatened them. Bowden asserts that the SEALs could have taken bin Laden alive, but had no intention of doing so.

In a separate account of the raid that was published last month, one member of the Navy team, Matt Bissonnette, wrote that the SEALS climbed a stairway inside the compound and opened fire when bin Laden poked his head around a doorway. Bissonnette wrote that bin Laden’s hands were concealed and the SEALS presumed he was armed so they shot him.

Bowden’s extensive access to top figures, from the president to the raid’s operational commander, Adm. Bill McRaven, may revive criticism from Republicans that the White House allegedly leaks about the raid to burnish its foreign policy record during an election year,

Bowden details how the White House planned the mission and explains that the specific American team was chosen because it had ‘‘already successfully conducted about a dozen secret missions inside Pakistan.’’

The recounting of the raid matches most previous versions. But Bowden also offers new insights from the first-person perspective of the officer who commanded it on the ground.

McRaven was able to monitor all Pakistani communications during the raid from his command post at a base in Afghanistan, according to Bowden. The account shows that Pakistani authorities were unaware of the raid as it happened, giving the Americans breathing room to fly in a backup helicopter to replace the one that had crashed while depositing the first batch of SEALs in the compound.

After McRaven told then-CIA director Leon Panetta he had a ‘‘Geronimo’’ call — the radio code that meant the SEALs had found bin Laden — the admiral realized he had not asked whether bin Laden was dead or had been captured.

McRaven checked again with the SEALs on the ground before relaying that bin Laden had likely been killed. But McRaven cautioned Panetta to ‘‘manage his expectations’’ until they had more definitive proof, by comparing his photographs with the dead man.

Later, McRaven told the president that he was ‘‘pretty damn sure’’ that they killed bin Laden, but said the military needed to complete DNA analysis to be sure, Bowden writes.

The book’s publication may complicate the Pentagon’s attempts to punish Bissonnette for his book. Writing under the pseudonym Mark Owen, Bissonnette published ‘‘No Easy Day’’ without submitting it for a security review by the Pentagon. Bowden was under no such requirement to have the book vetted because he was not a government or military employee.

Two-Thirds Of Studies Are Fraudulent

Two-Thirds Of Studies Are Fraudulent
A new study shows that studies can’t be trusted. Researchers found that nearly 70 percent of research articles have been retracted because of fraud.
When researchers reviewed more than 2,000 articles published in scientific journals, they found that 67.4 percent had to be retracted. Fraudulent studies have increased nearly tenfold since the 1970s.
The majority of fraudulent articles came out of the United States. Germany, Japan, China, the U.K., India and South Korea also produced erroneous research.
The research on fraudulent articles, which appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, concludes that on average it takes about 32 months for an article to be found fraudulent and get retracted. By that time, many stories have already been treated as fact, and governmental policy may have been enacted because of the so-called research.
“Authors commonly write, ‘We regret we have to retract our paper because the work is not reproducible,’ which is not exactly a lie,” said Arturo Casadevall, M.D., of Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. “The work indeed was not reproducible-because it was fraudulent. Researchers try to protect their labs and their reputations, and these retractions are written in such a way that you often don’t know what really happened.”

2 reportedly in custody for deadly border patrol shooting

Ivie, 30, was killed by gunfire Tuesday after responding to a sensor alarm near Highway 80 about seven miles east if Bisbee, according to the Border Patrol. One other agent sustained non-life threatening wounds.
Ivie lived with his wife and their two young daughters in Sierra Vista, Az., where he was involved with the community and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

by Sarah Cantey  

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
There has been no official confirmation as of Wednesday evening, but there are reports of suspects detained in connection with the death of Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie.
A highly-placed source confirmed to our sister-station in Phoenix, KPHO, that two people are being detained in Naco, Mexico in connection with the deadly border shooting Tuesday morning.
The source says confirmation came from the attorney general of Mexico, KPHO said.
There are still no details on when the men were captured or the details surrounding their arrest.
Tucson News Now received this statement as of Thursday afternoon from the Consulate of Mexico in Douglas:
"The Government of Mexico has been in constant communication with its US counterparts since it received notification of the incident where a border patrol agent sadly lost his life, and offered and has been providing all its support in the investigations that are being carried out. Given that there is an ongoing investigation, we have no additional comment at this time".
But, our sister-station states they have received confirmation of the arrests.
Tucson News Now will continue to follow this late breaking story and attempt independent confirmation.

October Surprise: Obama Plans Major Airstrike on Libyan Targets

 OpEd: Jack
Forget Libya how about assistance to Israel taking out a real threat to the US #Iran
Today, a Defense Department official confirmed to Breitbart News that there is advance planning for a “substantial air package” against targets in Libya. Military sources suggest that this means that flight missions against Libyan targets will include manned flights, not merely drones.
The New York Times reported yesterday that the Obama administration is preparing an operation to “kill or capture militants” involved in the Benghazi attack resulting in the murder of our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. According to the Times, the Joint Special Operations Command is putting together “so-called target packages of detailed information about the suspects.” These files are a coordinated project with the CIA and the Pentagon.
The Obama administration is under heavy scrutiny for its failure to protect the US consulate in Benghazi, and for its lack of security around the ambassador. Furthermore, the Obama administration is increasingly perceived as weak on terror, particularly in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, which has largely been hijacked by the well-organized Muslim Brotherhood. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to testify next Wednesday before the House Oversight Committee on the lack of security for the ambassador.

Time For Blacks To Leave The Democratic Party


Democrat Conventioneers Time For Blacks to Leave the Democratic Party
Speaking at the National Press Club in late September, black pastor Bishop E. W. Jackson unapologetically said it was time for black Americans to take a stand for what is right and called for a mass exodus from the Democrat Party due to the “irreconcilable conflict” between what the Democrat Party represents and their faith in God.
Regrettably, the Democrat Party has drawn a line in the sand forcing Christians of all colors to decide whether they will stand for their faith or against it if they stay in a party that blasphemes God when giving standing ovations for platform planks like same-sex marriage and abortion.

Divorcing the Democrat Party has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with “saving a generation” as Bishop Jackson said during his speech. Realistically speaking, it truly is, considering the damage done to the black race via abortions thanks to the Planned Parenthood organization Democrats enshrine. Democrat hero and founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was racist to the core; Sanger was photographed at KKK meetings sharing her dream to rid the planet of society’s “undesirables.” Liberals do their best to spin facts, but there really is no coincidence that the black population has decreased in large cities where Sanger’s clinics are planted. Even President Obama said unplanned children are “punishments.” No, Mr. Obama, unplanned pregnancies are children, not punishments.

Even still, there are those who cannot see beyond the freebies Democrats indiscriminately toss to them. Listening to the rants of a black Ohio woman over the weekend singing the praises of a party and president she hasn’t a clue is taking advantage of her disadvantages reminded me that bigotry has a new face that looks nothing like an elephant and an awful lot like a donkey. The Ohio woman can be viewed on the internet here.
Though she meant well, her words are an indictment on everything that is wrong with a party gone awry. Here, in her own unabridged and unedited words, is why she’s voting for Obama:
“Everyone in Cleveland, low minority got Obamaphone…keep Obama in President…you know, he gave us a phone; he gone do more.” When asked how, specifically, she qualified to get her tremendously special Obamaphone she answered, “You siiiiign up, if you on food stamps, you on social security, you got low-income, you on disability.”
Martin Luther King (MLK) would roll over in his grave to see the state of his people today, who, for an Obamaphone, have sold their souls to a devilish lie that entitlements are free. King’s pivotal words “Free at last, free at last” have become “free stuff at last, free stuff at last.”
Despite the color of his skin, President Obama’s job creation policies have been no friend to minorities generally, and blacks specifically. A recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report found black and Latino unemployment numbers continue to lead the pack and remain dangerously elevated.

With all the evidence stacked against them, Democrats continue to label Republicans as racists with ridiculous statements that a vote for a Republican would be a vote to end civil rights, entitlements, and the MLK holiday. Even our beloved Vice President said Mitt Romney would “put ya’ll back in chains.”
It is as if Democrats quietly believe blacks cannot reason or care for themselves and excuse those like the black Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, Mia Love, as anomalies. Many liberal networks blacked-out (pardon the pun) Love’s speech at the Republican National Convention telling a compelling story of self-reliance as the daughter of conservative immigrants. Before the night was over, liberal bloggers had labeled Love a “worthless whore,” an “Aunt Tom,” and “house (n-word)” — once again displaying an “irreconcilable conflict” between a party and its people who deserve much better.

Obama Shields Genocidal Muslim From Republican Legislation


Obama Appeaser Enemies SC Obama shields genocidal Muslim from Republican legislation
Barack Obama has decided to oppose Republican legislation that would deny American aid to any nation that hosts a visit from legendary Muslim murderer and Sudan president Omar al Bashir.
Introduced by Congressman Frank Wolf of Virginia, this Amendment to the 2013 Foreign Operations Appropriations bill passed the House in May. Its purpose is to “…send a clear message to the international community that Bashir, the world’s most notorious perpetrator of genocide deserves to be treated as a pariah.” That “clear message” would prevent offending nations from collecting billions in non-humanitarian foreign aid from the United States.

In 2008, the International Criminal Court (ICC) indicted Bashir on 10 counts of murder, genocide, and crimes against humanity for the killing of some 35,000 inhabitants of Western Darfur. This is a rather small percentage of the 2.5 million the Muslim president of Sudan is “credited” with dispatching during his 20 years of rule. Al Bashir is subject to arrest and trial in any nation courageous enough to press ICC charges.
But while Barack Obama, the self-styled champion of democracy and liberty, has trumpeted the necessity of removing from power Muoamar Ghadafi and Hosni Mubarek (utter lightweights when compared with the murderous al Bashir), he has “…repeatedly soft-pedaled, negotiated with and even effectively lent support to al Bashir and his totalitarian regime.”

“It seems to my colleagues and I that the administration is motivated by a reluctance to have any clash with the Russians, Chinese, or the Arab League, and those are Bashir’s supporters,” says Rafael Madoff, Director of the Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies.
“The administration has had a policy of trying to be able to work with the Muslim Brotherhood,” said Special Humanitarian Coordinator for the Sudan, Andrew Natsios. “Bashir is the manifestation of the Muslim Brotherhood in Sudan.”
Of course in Egypt, Obama stressed the necessity of removing 30-year American ally Hosni Mubarek from power, turning over the president’s job to Muhammed Morsi, the embodiment of the Muslim Brotherhood.
But this same Barack Obama, “…a generally outspoken devotee of international legality, has in effect not supported the International Criminal Court’s indictment, arrest warrant, or attempt to try Al Bashir for mass murder. Obama, the orator, has not resoundingly declared that Al Bashir has no legitimacy to rule, or publicly warned, let alone threatened, Al Bashir of any serious consequences for further renewing his mass elimination and murdering.”
Obama has employed the national—indeed the international– media to sell his nonsensical vision of Arab Spring. The world is led to believe that freedom and the pursuit of democracy have come to Muslims throughout Middle East, courtesy of a courageous American president. But of course the world–or at least its thinking inhabitants–understands Barack has done little more than place millions of lives in the hands of Islamist forces intent upon imposing an absolute rule far more deadly than anything Hosni Mubarek or even Muoamar Ghadafi could have dreamed up.
But the world needn’t worry. For Barack Obama has expressed “deep concern” over the possibility that al Bashir’s continued assault on the Sudanese might “…undermine normalization of Sudan’s relations with the U.S.”
Clearly, that means millions are now safe in the caring hands of the American president.

Obama 'destroying records' in 'cyber bonfire'

WND Exclusive

In 2008, President Obama excoriated the Bush administration for its lack of transparency, and he vowed to lead the most open administration in U.S. history.  Not only has that promise failed to materialize, but the Obama White House is among the most secretive in history and routinely breaks federal laws to keep damaging information from coming to light.
Christopher Horner is a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute specializing in energy and environmental issues, although he studies other issues as well. He has filed scores of Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, requests to procure documents from the past three administrations.

Horner told WND’s Greg Corombos that the Obama administration has routinely tried to squelch his requests by forwarding them to the wrong agencies, claiming he would have to pay huge fees for the documents to be processed or just flatly ignored.  Several times, Horner has been forced to sue the government for the requests to be honored.
As frustrating as that bureaucratic  maze can be, Horner said the administration is also guilty of intentionally breaking the law.
In his new book, “The Liberal War on Transparency,” Horner details how multiple officials, including former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Jim Messina, conducted business on private email accounts so those communications would never end up on the public record.  Messina, who is now manager of the Obama re-election effort, used a personal email account to negotiate with the drug industry and bring them on board the push to pass Obamacare in exchange for $4 billion in incentives.
Horner said those emails were deleted, despite federal law demanding that all government business be preserved and done through official means of communication.  He warned that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

“I’ve got an affidavit, which I reveal in the book for the first time, from an official in the government acknowledging that they’ve got essentially a cyber bonfire going on at all times in the administration,” said Horner, who said the “bonfire” is tasked with “destroying records, using nongovernmental computers to access governmental servers.”
He explained, “They’ve got this system rigged whereby that destroys all traces of the record on the government system, and because they’re using a private computer very deliberately there’s no government computer you can then find the trace of the record on.  If they did what they were supposed to do, you would leave these electronic footprints everywhere.  It’s a very organized government-wide systemic effort to avoid leaving any trails.  The problem is, that’s against the law.”

BOMBSHELL: Obama Denied Requests for Increased Security in Benghazi Before 9/11

U.S. diplomats in Libya repeatedly asked the Obama administration for more security in Benghazi in the run-up to the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate but were “denied these resources,” two congressional lawmakers said.
House oversight committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, pressed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for more information on those requests and other concerns in a letter Tuesday.
They detailed a string of attacks and other security incidents in Benghazi starting in April, and asked the State Department what measures it took to address the threat. They claimed officials have told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee of “repeated requests” for additional security.
“Based on information provided to the committee by individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya, the attack that claimed the ambassador’s life was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012,” they wrote. “In addition, multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the committee that, prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington.”

Officer Louis Dixon and Officer Charles Bokinskie were shot and killed while attempting to stop a truck loaded with marijuana in Nogales, Arizona. During the pursuit the suspect opened fire on the officers. Both officers returned fire, wounding the suspect.

The suspect vehicle suddenly stopped causing Officer Dixon to apply the brakes. The patrol vehicle slid next to the suspect's vehicle and came to a stop. The suspect opened fire on the officers, striking Officer Bokinskie in the patrol car, causing him to drop his shotgun out of the window.

The suspect picked up the shotgun and continued to exchange shots with Officer Dixon, fatally wounding him. The suspect was also shot several times and died a short time later after crashing his vehicle into a ravine while attempting to flee the scene.

Officer Dixon was survived by his wife and three children.
