'Oath Keepers' *Alert* SD Police Chief William Lansdowne 'Oath Breaker'

San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne is fully supportive of the Obama/Feinstein gun grab, and says if lawmakers play it right Americans can be completely disarmed within “a generation.” 'Not surprising being that the wonderful Police Chief avoided service in Vietnam by joining the San Jose Police Department and the California National Guard after graduating from college 'on deferments' 1962-1966...this is just one step above a draft dodger! He supports the Obama administration in sedition against the Constitution and the Bill of Rights 2nd amendment..what a embarrassment he is to Active as well as Veterans of the US Military and LE! 

Oath Keepers gives the Chief a *Thumbs Down*

San Diego Police Chief: We Can Disarm Americans Within a Generation

oped: SanDiego is a Military did this Marxist get hired? The Mayor should be recalled from office for hiring this caca piece of work!

San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne is fully supportive of the Obama/Feinstein gun grab, and says if lawmakers play it right Americans can be completely disarmed within "a generation."

Lansdowne has gone on record saying: "I could not be more supportive of the president for taking the position he has. I think it's courageous with the politics involved in this process. [And] I think it's going to eventually make the country safer."
He made it clear that it may take "a generation," but new laws could eventually take all guns off the streets.
This is quite a departure from other law enforcement personnel we've seen around the country--particularly Sheriffs--who've come out firmly against any infringement on the 2nd Amendment. We've cheered those officials for standing with the people, and now Lansdowne has taken a position completely opposite them.
Moreover, Lansdowne has also been slamming the NRA in interviews. And he seems overtly thrilled at the money the NRA is being forced to spend to get their message out in the wake of the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary. "We broke the NRA," says Lansdowne.
Breitbart News contacted Lansdowne's office about these statements but received no comment.

The Obama administration wants to deport Christian Family

Seeking freedom of worship: Eric Holder is Trying to Deport German Christian Homeschooling Family. It could serve as a legal precedent for Obama’s efforts to outlaw homeschooling here in the US. If returned to their homeland, the couple could face more large fines, jail time and the loss of their children.

The Founding of Our Idiocracy

On the day following Obama’ State of the Union sermon, Rush Limbaugh confessed he had not understood that America doesn’t connect the Lyin’ King or his policies with our nation’s ills. Until now, that is. What caused the epiphany? Mr. Limbaugh arrived at this conclusion after viewing a focus group after address. The focus group was composed entirely of former Romney voters. Like a majority of the nation, they hate the direction the country is taking yet loved the president’s speech. Rush was astounded by this “doublethink.” What Mr. Limbaugh acknowledged was revealing but, it is only the tip of the iceberg.
He correctly identified that the president always makes certain that he is never perceived as “governing.” He is solely focused on playacting at resisting the phantoms he claims are to blame for the ills that beset us. Those forces are never caused by him. And he is believed by a large portion of the constituency, despite his four-year history of lying to us, day in and day out. Mr. Limbaugh further added that such behavior is a staple of dictatorship. Such Orwellian conduct by all concerned isn’t the major problem, however. In order for such an alarming dichotomy to be possible there has to be a total disregard for logic and common sense. And this is the issue that is still not being addressed.

Common sense is anything but common. Like every action a human being can perform, either physical or mental, common sense must be learned. A human being is not born with such ability, fully developed. And logic must accompany common sense. Logic is a discipline that is based upon fact and evidence of whatsoever is true. Logic teaches one to think. Without it, “common sense” would still dictate that the earth is flat. Logic used to be a required subject in school. It isn’t anymore. That isn’t an oversight. In his book The Intended Result of Education Bertrand Russell wrote: “Education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished.”
The left is never required to prove anything. Leftists make a statement and whatever they say automatically becomes true because they say it is so. We are expected to choke down their swill without a murmur of protest.
Every media outlet, whether entertainment, mainstream media or our elected representatives tells us only what they want us to believe regardless of how frequently what they tell us changes. And a dumbed-down populace meekly swallows, without dispute.

Political Correctness completes the destructive hat trick. When thinking is restricted thinking ceases to exist. Everything from eroding personal freedoms to gun control to the blind acceptance of any and every perversion stems from what is permissible thought and what is not. We have “hate crime.” Hate crime outranks crime. Why? Isn’t murder still murder?
Still worse, certain interest groups, we are told, are exempt from hate crime. Their status as minorities makes hate crime impossible. Christopher Dorner is a prime example. He slaughtered nearly every racial type and gender of human being yet excuses are made and the mainstream media urges us to consider the discrimination he was “fighting against.” Dorner is considered a folk-hero by many. The University of Wisconsin is teaching a course whose focus is that it is “unfair to be white.” Who gets to decree what’s unfair and what is not? What are the criteria? Dr. Benjamin Carson, an honored, world-famous, pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins, had the audacity to raise the alarm PC poses to thought at the National Prayer Breakfast in D.C. He did it with the President sitting a few feet away.

How unutterably sad that PC begs the question, had Dr. Carson not been a black man, would his reputation have survived making that speech? Because he did so there is still doubt; a mindless media is trying to marginalize and discredit him for committing the blasphemy of speaking his mind.
When logic, common sense and the ability to say what one thinks become irrelevant how much easier does it become for any ruling class to supply whatever “facts” they want their constituency to believe? Our current reality is that fact no longer has standing; instead we pay court to emotion. The danger in not understanding that this is the real predicament is immense; if one doesn’t recognize the problem how can one fix the problem?
Progressives have controlled education, social services and PC for nearly 100 years. “Low information voters” are created when only low information is made available; when indoctrination replaces education. An eighth grade education used to be tantamount to what is currently taught in college. The left’s agenda may well be the destruction of our ability to think, to be logical. Without such aptitude there is no rule of law. Everything becomes mutable. The Constitution becomes disposable. Without thought we are unable to protect ourselves. We become the pawns of whoever governs over us. Absence of logical thought makes it easy to see how the man spearheading our ruin got reelected.


Get ‘Em Young: Obama’s Plan for Universal Preschool


Since the recent State of the Union address, President Obama has been touting his proposal to offer free preschool to everybody.
The White House cites studies that claim all manner of benefits to sticking young children into the zoo early on, including later “success.” And Obama claims one of his main motivations is to close the test score “achievement gap” between poor and rich kids.
It’s evidently never too early to begin class warfare, which leads us into some other issues about this whole notion of preschool.
Preschool is billed as preparation for kindergarten and sold to parents as an opportunity for essential socialization of children.
Experience suggests reality is other than what the public is being sold.
Preparation for kindergarten? Like without intensive studying, children might not be able to grasp the difficult concepts of counting or macaroni art?

Socialization,too, is one of those buzz words used to sucker parents into doing what some bureaucrat insists is best for the children. Many a young parent has been conned with images of warpainted kids running amok if they don’t put them into the government-sanctioned hands of strangers for five hours a day, whether Mommy needs to go to work or not.
I’m sorry, but I’ve seen preschools. You’d be better serving your child by leaving him tied to a stake in the backyard with a bowl of water and some kibble than by letting him near some of the hellspawn that are enrolled in preschool.

The only real “success” to come out of the majority of preschools is in serving as a petri dish for exotic diseases that your babe will proudly bring home and share with you.
It only takes an average of two seconds’ exposure to a group of preschoolers to cause the typical adult’s immune system to crash and burn.

As for those supposed educational successes, many of them are sitting in the nation’s prisons because they never learned not to steal or sell drugs, but they can fingerpaint up a storm.
If you truly want to give your child an educational head start, turn off the TV and make him crack a couple of books every week.
The real reason for promoting universal preschool should be obvious.
Besides serving as yet another excuse to raise taxes, preschool is the first real opportunity government has to indoctrinate young children by exposing them to ideas like Timmy having two daddies, the Pilgrims being illegal aliens, the Founding Fathers being terrorists and free condoms.
The world would be a better place if the kids could just stay home with their parents.

Let’s All Sail on the ‘Ted Cruz’ Ship from Texas


Ted Cruz
This is what Republicans should be. Take a long look at the freshman senator from Texas — Ted Cruz. He’s giving the Democrats and RINOs a dose of what it means to go to Washington and do what you said you would do when you asked people to vote for you.
Cruz took an oath to govern in terms of the Constitution.
Here’s what he said in an email interview after coming down with a case of laryngitis he most likely got from taking on the Democrats:
“I made promises to the people of Texas that I would come to Washington to shake up the status quo. That is what I intend to do, and it is what I have done in every way possible in the responsibilities that have been granted to me.”
The Senate has become a gentleman’s club with most Republicans serving meals and drinks to the Democrats hoping for a few tips at the end of the day. All they get is the back of their political hand.

Sen. Cruz opposed Chuck Hagel, a former Republican Senator, for the Secretary of Defense position. He took on Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel when he “wrote to the chiefs of big banks urging them not to invest in gun manufacturers.” Cruz accused the mayor of his crime-ridden city of “bullying.”
Cruz had words with Charley Rangel, the Senate’s third-ranking Democrat, on live television. The Texas Senator “voted against virtually everything before him — including the confirmation of John Kerry as secretary of state — and raised the hackles of colleagues from both parties.”

What if we had 40 Republicans like Cruz? Now that’s a party American conservatives could get behind.
Maybe Sen. Cruz will light the way for mealy mouthed, once-thought-to-be conservatives to come back to the fold.
“The last thing we need is another status quo senator or congressman who will go along to get along,” said former Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, who pumped money into Mr. Cruz’s campaign, then left the Senate to lead the conservative Heritage Foundation.
All the Democrats could do was to accuse the senator of the dreaded “M” word — “McCarthyism.”

When a Democrat gets attacked on the facts or principles, they resort to name calling. Fortunately, most low-information voters don’t know much if anything about Joseph McCarthyism. They might actually think that he’s a big fan of Paul McCartney of Beatles fame.
The above quotations were take from The New York Times (February 15, 2013).

How Can the Leader of the Free World Lie With Such Impunity?

Earlier this week in his State of the Union address President Obama made some observations on climate change so brimming with falsehoods I’m surprised his nose didn’t fall off.
It really doesn’t matter where he himself was deliberately lying or whether he was merely lending the gravitas of his office to the deliberate lies of others. The point is that the President of the USA has access to any number of fact checkers and advisers and if he stands up and addresses the nation with a farrago of complete untruths then the buck stops with him. This dissembling and mendacity becomes all the more culpable when it forms the basis of major public policy decisions which will have a serious impact on people’s lives in the US and beyond.
So why this snake-oil salesman being allowed to get away with it?
Here’s the offending part of Obama’s speech.

Now, it’s true that no single event makes a trend. But the fact is, the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15. Heat waves, droughts, wildfires, floods, all are now more frequent and more intense. We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence. Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment of science and act before it’s too late.
And here’s Marc Morano’s unanswerable point by point rebuttal. Obama’s war on climate change is a war against a chimera. He is enlarging the state, holding back the economic recovery, restricting freedoms, driving up the price of energy and killing jobs in order to deal with a problem which only exists in the discredited computer projections of a shameless cabal of grant-troughing activist scientists increasingly out of touch with real world data.
So why, outside the internet, has no one called him on it?

Russian Nuclear Bombers Over US Territory

Hours before Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, two Russian nuclear-armed bombers circled the western Pacific island of Guam, an organized, unincorporated territory of the United States. This is the latest sign of the growing strategic assertiveness of Moscow towards the United States.
The Tu-95 Bear-H strategic bombers were equipped with nuclear-tipped cruise missiles. The bombers were followed closely by U.S. jets.
The Washington Free Beacon reports,
Air Force Capt. Kim Bender, a spokeswoman for the Pacific Air Force in Hawaii, confirmed the incident to the Washington Free Beacon and said Air Force F-15 jets based on Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, “scrambled and responded to the aircraft.”
“The Tu-95s were intercepted and left the area in a northbound direction. No further actions occurred,” she said. Bender said no other details would be released “for operational security reasons.”
The bomber incident was considered highly unusual. Russian strategic bombers are not known to have conducted such operations in the past into the south Pacific from bomber bases in the Russian Far East, which is thousands of miles away and over water.
“Every day brings new evidence that Obama’s ideological obsession with dismantling our nuclear deterrent is dangerous,” said former United Nations ambassador and former State Department internationals security undersecretary John Bolton. “Our national security is in danger of slipping off the national agenda even as the threats grow.”

Confirmed: Obama Made No Calls, Took No Action During Benghazi Attack

oped: Now the question becomes...When will Congress act and start Impeachment hearings..this is obviously a Impeachable offense just one of many growing violations against the Obama administartion.
In this case: Dereliction of duty is a specific offense under United States Code Title 10,892. Article 92

Last week, Lindsey Graham’s unrelenting line of questioning compelled Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to confirm under oath that not a single military asset was deployed to help rescue besieged US personnel in the course of a terrorist raid in Benghazi, Libya. The September 11, 2012 attack lasted nearly eight hours, during which four Americans died, including our sitting ambassador. Multiple requests for increased security in the weeks and months leading up to the massacre were denied. Urgent warnings that the Benghazi consulate couldn’t withstand a sustained attack were ignored.

(The compound didn’t even meet minimum security standards for American diplomatic outposts anywhere in the world). An eleventh-hour cable accurately predicting an imminent attack resulted in…nothing. Explicit calls for help during the prolonged raid went unheeded amidst a flurry of “stand down” orders. One of many lingering questions regarding this outrageous episode is what our Commander-in-Chief was doing throughout the ordeal, during which America’s real-time response was evidently paralyzed by chaotic indecision. Yesterday, the White House finally shed some light on this question by releasing a letter describing what President Obama was not doing as American diplomats’ lives hung in the balance:

Colorado School Bans White Students From After-School Tutoring Programs

A school principal said no white children were allowed at an after-school tutoring program, and now some parents call it discrimination.
The principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora sent a letter telling parents the program is only for students of color. Parents CBS4 talked with said they were shocked to see, in this day and age, what they consider to be segregation.

“I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” said parent Nicole Cox, who is white.
Cox’s 10-year-old daughter needs tutoring. After receiving the notice, other parents complained to the school’s principal, Andre Pearson.
“We have come so far in all of these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally … this is a form of bullying,” Cox said.

House overrides Obama, votes to freeze federal pay

The House voted Friday to freeze the pay of federal workers for the third year in a row over the objections of congressional Democrats and the Obama administration.
Members voted 261-154 in favor of the bill, which would also lock in a pay freeze for members of Congress. It exempts people serving in the military.

The bill won significant support from Democrats — 43 voted for it — while 10 Republicans voted against it.
The legislation is an attempt to override President Obama’s executive order in December that seeks to give federal workers a 0.5 percent pay hike in late March. That order incensed congressional Republicans, who criticized it as an attempt to seize control of an issue that has traditionally been under Congress’s purview.

Texas preps for going it alone

by Bob Unruh 

Texas was its own nation before joining the United States, and many jokes have been made about some Texans still not recognizing that “other government” with which it now is affiliated.
But lawmakers there are drawing attention by considering a law that would have Texas review how it would respond should the U.S. government no longer be there to send federal tax revenue back to the state.

The proposal would set up a committee to study what the state gets from Washington, “the effects on the state budget if federal fiscal policy necessitates a significant reduction in or elimination of federal funding” and “a plan to address the loss of federal money.”
The plan, HB 568, has been introduced by Rep. James White, who said in a statement Texas Self-Sufficiency Act “creates a select committee to evaluate the effects of a possible reduction in or elimination of federal funding on the state budget due to federal fiscal policy.”
“Due to the fiscal dysfunction of Washington, D.C., and the fact that more than a third of our state’s budget revenue comes from the federal government, Texas needs to study what it would mean if the federal government couldn’t meet its obligations,” he said.
The plan directs the governor, lieutenant governor and other officials to assemble a committee “to analyze not only our state’s dependence on federal funds, but the impact of federal funding on Texas’ economy.”
Said White: “My district in South East Texas, for example, has a higher proportion of seniors compared to the state overall percentage. What would happen in the event the federal government eliminated the funds normally allocated to them? In the current economic climate, exacerbated by out of control spending in Washington, Texas needs to study possible responses to federal financial turmoil, and our readiness to adjust to such an event. Texans must govern Texas and Texans need to be concerned about Texas.”

On the website for the state GOP, David Bellow blogged about the idea.
“State Rep. James White has proposed a bill that will require the leaders of Texas to start crunching the numbers and figure out what Texas would look like if it had to be self sufficient … limited or no federal support … OUR OWN COUNTRY…. oops, I am getting a little ahead of myself, haha. Hey, I didn’t say secession but that certainly comes to mind when thinking about the federal government having a financial meltdown and cutting off most or all support to the states.”
Bellow asked: “What would Texas do in the event that the United States of America defaulted? It is a very real possibility that one day the massive U.S. debt will become so large and unsustainable that it causes a financial meltdown. Texas, and pretty much everyone else, would all of a sudden be faced with no more federal funds (which is really just Texas tax dollars given to the feds which is then given back to Texas). Yes, Texas is already a sovereign state, but what would we do if faced with complete sovereignty and no federal money?”

He explained: “State Representative James White is thinking ahead. He does not want to have to wait until Texas gets cut off from the federal government to determine how Texas will manage on our own. White wants to start planning now.”
WND previously reported the response of hundreds of thousands of Americans when Obama was re-elected in November.
They launched petitions expressing their desire to have their states secede from the U.S.
The move began with a petition on the White House website from Louisianans anxious to properly withdraw their state from the union. In just days, residents of all 50 states had launched similar petitions, gathering hundreds of thousands of signatures.  Read More:

Obama's plan to make illegals comfy

by Steve Peacock 

As the U.S. Department of Homeland Security expands its outsourcing of detention  across the nation, potential contractors are being forewarned to abide by the Obama administration’s kinder, gentler approach to detaining illegal aliens.
DHS Immigration & Customs Enforcement most recently embarked upon the outsourcing plan in Georgia, where it will continue to push the administration’s reform agenda to create a civil, rather than penal, processing system.
According to contracting documents that WND located through routine database research, the Georgia outsourcing endeavor requires providers to offer detainees, among other perks, “abundant natural light throughout the facility [and] ample indoor and outdoor recreation that allows for vigorous aerobic exercise with extended hours of availability.”

ICE recently issued a Request for Information from potential contractors in which the agency intends to assign detention responsibilities to private sector entities that will build new facilities, renovate existing structures or leverage a combination of the two.
The agency acknowledged that some detainees may have a criminal history or suffer from mental illness. In those cases, it would require the contractor to separate such persons into a medium- or maximum-security area.
Other detainees, however, would be accommodated with various services and conditions, such as:
  1. Four hours per day of outdoor recreation and ideally a minimum of two hours recreation in a gymnasium during inclement weather.
  2. Private showers and restrooms (where practicable).
  3. Cafeteria-style meal service.
  4. Non-institutional detainee clothing.
  5. “Contact visitation,” including special arrangements for visiting families, with extended hours including nights and weekends.
  6. Private areas for attorney-client visits, with video teleconferencing capabilities.
  7. Noise control.
  8. Enhanced, but controlled, freedom of movement.
  9. Enhanced law library and legal resources. 
  10. “Enhanced programming,” including religious services and social programs and dedicated space for religious services. 
ICE tentatively is looking for space in Georgia to hold about 2,000 male detainees – up to 600 who would be categorized a low-security, 900 as medium-security and 400 designated as a high-security population. Capacity for an additional 100 detainees would be divided between administrative detention and mental health units.  Read More:

Russian Meteor Was US Weapons Test, Claims Russian Nationalist Politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky

oped: Damn old Vlad the Impaler must have gotten' into some bad Vodka...or Putin slipped him some Kentucky Moonshine to wake the 10 or so hard core Commies out of their drunken stuper. or Dracula..rofl Sorry Vlad & ain't gonna work...your people like Burger King, Mickey D's and Col Sanders...!

Russian Meteor Was US Weapons Test, Claims Russian Nationalist Politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky
The meteor that rained down on central Russia and injured upwards of 1,000 people was not a celestial object at all, but a U.S. weapons test, claimed nationalist Russian lawmaker Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
Zhirinovsky, the head of Russia’s Liberal Democratic Party who is known for his nationalist views and outlandish allegations, made the startling claim to Russia’s state-owned news agency, RIA Novosti.
“Those aren’t meteors falling; it’s the Americans testing new weapons,” the Russian politician said.

The U.S. State Department could not immediately be reached for reaction to Zhirinovsky’s comment.
Zhirinovsky claimed new U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry meant to warn Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about the so-called “provocation” but had difficulty reaching his Russian counterpart, RIA Novosti reported.
Earlier this week, the U.S. State Department noted Kerry tried to speak to Lavrov about developments in North Korea and Syria.
According to Zhirinovsky and his views on the laws of physics, it’s impossible that a meteorite rained down on Russia.
“Nothing will ever fall out there,” he said, referring to outer space. “If [something] falls, it’s people doing that. People are the instigators of wars, the provocateurs.”
The meteor was traveling at around 33,000 mph and rained down over the Ural Mountains, according to the Russian Academy of Sciences. More than 1,000 people were injured when the meteorite hit Earth with the power of an atomic bomb.

Russians said they panicked as the celestial object hurdled toward the ground.
“We saw a big burst of light, then went outside to see what it was, and we heard a really loud, thundering sound,” Sergey Hametov, of Chelyabinsk, told the Associated Press.
Marat Lobkovsky said he was injured when he looked out his window to watch the meteor.
“I went to see what that flash in the sky was about,” he told the AP. “And then the window glass shattered, bouncing back on me. My beard was cut open, but not deep. They patched me up; it’s OK now.”
Zhirinovsky is both a colorful and controversial figure in Russia due to his nationalist views.
The Liberal Democratic Party leader was pelted with sour cabbage during a news conference in Kiev late last month by a woman who accused him of having “Ukrainophobia,” Radio Free Europe reported. Zhirinosky believes that the Ukraine and other former Soviet republics should join Russia.  

Zhirinovsky lashed out at his bodyguards for “not doing their job properly” to prevent the sour cabbage incident and claimed the woman “was paid to do this,” the news outlet reported.
He also gained considerable media attention for his donkey video that mocked then-Russian presidential candidate Mikhail Prokhorov in February 2012. The video, which was posted to YouTube, has more than 760,000 views. Zhirinovsky drew the ire of animal rights groups for having the donkey blindfolded in the video.

Report: $2 billion spent annually for Medicaid emergencies, largely for illegal immigrant baby deliveries

oped: Jack
Congress needs to stop lying to the American public...both sides of  the aisle are guilty of stealing money from the Social Security as well as the Medicare fund to fund the Medicaid program...this funds the anchor baby program and guarantees Illegal Immigrant votes...also the 'Obamacare' bill steals funds from Social Security as well as Medicare destroying the system! Enough is Enough folks get on your representatives and give em' hell!

by: Caroline May
Even though federal law largely bars illegal immigrants from obtaining Medicaid coverage, the program annually pays out more than $2 billion in free emergency coverage that mostly goes to illegal immigrants, according to Kaiser Health News.
The vast majority of the total emergency care reimbursements cover delivering babies, Kaiser reports.

Based on a Kaiser data analysis of the states believed to have the greatest populations of illegal immigrants — including California, New York, Texas, North Carolina, Arizona, Illinois and Florida — more than 100,000 people annually receive emergency care that is reimbursed by Medicaid.
California, Kaiser’s analysis showed, receives approximately half of the annual $2 billion Medicaid expenditure category.
That category of Medicaid also covers some homeless people and legal immigrants who have been in the country less than five years — and are therefore mostly ineligible for Medicaid, according to Kaiser.
“We can’t turn them away,” Joanne Aquilina, the chief financial officer of Bethesda Healthcare System in Boynton Beach, Fla., told Kaiser.
Nearly one-third of Bethesda Hospital East’s annual 2,900 births are paid for by emergency Medicaid funding.

According to a 2007 Journal of the American Medical Association report, an analysis of claims reimbursed by Emergency Medicaid over a four-year period in North Carolina revealed that 99 percent of the 48,391 individual cases went toward services for illegal immigrants.

Kaiser reports that hospitals generally realize when patients are illegal immigrants, even though they do not explicitly ask them their status, because they do not possess a Social Security Number, birth certificate or other documents.
“We gather information to qualify patients for something and through that process, if you really hit a dead end, you know they are illegal,” Steve Short, the chief financial officer at Tampa General Hospital, told Kaiser.

Envy Is Ugly Alert: Liberals Call SI Swimsuit Issue Racist


Screen Shot 2013-02-14 at 11.38.01 AM
It’s been a big week for Sports Illustrated. First, a blogger leaked the swimsuit issue’s much-anticipated cover, upstaging David Letterman’s big reveal on Monday. Now website Jezebel is calling out the men’s magazine for using minorities as “props” in photos featuring models in bikinis posing in seven different continents.
Depending on where you look, the reaction has been mixed, even among the men who are supposed to be titillated. On Jezebel’s website, one male commenter wrote, “Pics of woman with local natives is NOT hot, it’s exploitative, so the mission is fail right there. Oh and exploitative. I do not know what they were thinking….fail all around.” While another guy wrote, “Some of the examples are ›‹reaching a bit…the one with the boat….why pick that for China? Especially when everything I read about China is how they’re an industrial powerhouse.” And one helpful reader on Sports Illustrated’s Facebook page pointed out, “Technically speaking they were not shot in all seven continents. While Easter Island may belong to Chile, it’s a Polynesian island, and not part of the South American continent.” Oy.

'Final pope' about to take over Vatican?

Did Pope Benedict XVI line up his successor and then resign to fulfill a 900-year-old prophecy that the next leader of the Roman Catholic Church would be history's "final pope?"

The idea was posed by Tom Horn, co-author of the book "Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope is Here."

As WND reported, Horn and his co-author, Cris Putnam, accurately predicted Benedict would become the first pope in nearly 600 years to resign.

Horn believes the last pope, called "Petrus Romanus" in the prophecy by Irish Archbishop St. Malachy, could be the man who is set to take over interim leadership the moment Benedict resigns Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. local time, becoming the acting Vatican head of state.

The claim centers on Cardinal Tarcisio Pietro (Peter in English) Evasio Bertone, born in Romano Canavese, Piedmont, the current secretary of state for the Vatican, who Pope Benedict XVI appointed Camerlengo, or Chamberlain, of the Holy Roman Church April 4, 2007.

In the period known as "sede vacante," when there is no sitting pope, Bertone will be called upon as Camerlengo to serve as the head of the Roman Catholic Church.

He will be in charge until the College of Cardinals attending the upcoming Papal Conclave in the Sistine Chapel select a new pope.

Did Benedict choose his successor?

Benedict XVI has made decisions that indicate Bertone could be, or at least once was, his choice for successor, Horn told WND.

Working alongside Bertone, Benedict appeared to be "stacking the deck" in Bertone's favor Jan. 6, 2012, when he named 22 new cardinals. Most are Europeans, primarily Italians, already holding key Vatican positions.

As a result, Europeans currently number over half of all cardinal-electors, 67 out of 125. Nearly a quarter of all voters in the conclave will be Italian.

"When he appointed these new cardinals," Horn said, "Benedict seemed to put his definitive stamp on an Italian successor, stacking the College of Cardinals, those who could be called upon to give Bertone the so-called apostolic chair of St. Peter."

Horn said the idea was not Benedict's alone.

Most Vatican experts attribute the large number of Italian appointments to the influence of Bertone, he said.

WND sources in Rome close to the Vatican previously suggested Benedict may have resigned in part because he wanted to have a hand, even if indirect, in influencing the selection of his successor.

The sources further argue that by selecting "Benedict" as his papal name, Cardinal Josef Ratzinger, though not a priest of the Benedictine Order, sought to identify his papacy with Malachy’s prohecy that the next-to-last pope would be identified by the epithet Gloria olivae, translated as "Glory of the Olive," knowing the Benedictine Order is associated by tradition with olives.

By setting up the College of Cardinals to elevate an Italian cardinal to the papacy, Pope Benedict XVI could help fulfill the Malachy prophecy, making Cardinal Bertone – "Peter of Romano" by virtue of one of his given names and his place of birth – the "final pope."

On Tuesday, Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi told reporters at a Vatican briefing that Pope Benedict XVI would have no say in the selection of his successor, telling reporters the pope "will surely say absolutely nothing about the process of the election" for his successor.

Benedict "will not interfere in any way," Lombardi insisted.

The Third Secret of Fatima

Horn suspects Cardinal Bertone is at the center of a Vatican cover-up to prevent the release of the complete version of what is known as the highly controversial "Third Secret of Fatima," allegedly given by the Virgin Mary in an appearance to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal, July 13, 1917.

Bertone, who turned 78 in December, had a long history with Cardinal Ratzinger before he became Pope Benedict XVI.

From 1995 to 2002, Ratzinger worked with Bertone as his No. 2 at the influential Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in the Vatican.

A few months after he was elected pope, Benedict asked Bertone to take up the position of Vatican secretary of state, the position Bertone holds to this day.

In January 2010, when Bertone reached 75, the age of retirement for Curia cardinals, he presented a letter of resignation to the pope. Benedict was adamant he needed Bertone to stay on as Vatican head of state, because he wanted to maintain "their precious collaboration," as reported by Andrea Tornielli in the Italian newspaper La Stampa.

Benedict has steadfastly supported Bertone through a series of crises that have called into question Bertone’s integrity and honesty, including a money-laundering scandal involving the Vatican Bank, formerly known as the Institute for Works of Religion, or IOR. The scandal resulted in the sacking of the bank’s head, Gotti Tedeschi, a highly respected Italian economist and banker, as well as Paolo Gabriele, the pope’s butler, who was criminally prosecuted for confiscating and photocopying more than 1,000 pages of sensitive Vatican documents over six years that he released to an Italian journalist for publication.

In their role of directing the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinals Ratzinger and Bertone released for the fist time to the public "The Third Secret of Fatima" at a press conference June 26, 2000.

In 2007, Bertone published a book, "The Last Secret of Fatima," with a foreword authored by Benedict XVI, defending the publicly released text of "Third Secret" as the entire secret, arguing that in publishing the text, the Catholic Church had withheld nothing.

"The Third Secret of Fatima" involves a highly controversial End Times vision of an assassination attempt on a future pope that is occasioned by moral corruption and lack of faith among the clergy.

Pope John Paul II believed Our Lady of Fatima intervened to save his life in the assassination attempt in St. Peter’s Square at Vatican City on May 13, 1981, the anniversary of the first apparition of the Virgin Mary to the three children of Fatima.

The current controversy began when Italian journalist and television personality Antonio Socci and American attorney Christopher Ferrara began publishing the claim the Vatican had refused to publish a second part of "Third Secret" that contained the words of the Virgin as revealed to the children of Fatima.

Socci and Ferrara contend the hidden text predicts catastrophes for the Catholic Church and the world that involve End Days punishment by God, leading to Jesus Christ returning to earth for Judgment Day.

Did Benedict XVI plan to resign in 2009?

Celestine V was the last pope to resign, in 1294, after only five months in office. He was a hermit who was greatly revered for his sanctity and his miracles.

On April 28, 2009, in a visit to view Celestine’s remains in the badly damaged Santa Maria di Collemaggio after the disastrous 2009 L’Aquila earthquake, Pope Benedict XVI left the woolen pallium he wore during his papal inauguration in April 2005 on Clement’s glass casket as a gift.

To mark the 800th anniversary of Celestine’s birth, Benedict proclaimed the Celestine Year from Aug. 28, 2009, to Aug. 29, 2010.

Benedict was the only pope to visit Pope Celestine V’s tomb, a sign many have taken that he had contemplated resignation for some time before he made the announcement earlier this week.

On Dec. 13, 1294, on the Feast of Saint Lucy, Celestine V read the following statement to the cardinals who assembled to hear his news: "I, Celestine V, moved by valid reasons, that is, by humility, by desire for a better life, by a troubled conscience, troubles of body, a lack of knowledge, personal shortcomings, and so that I may then proceed to a life of greater humility, voluntarily and without compunction give up the papacy and renounce its position and dignity, burdens, and honors, with full freedom. I now instruct the Sacred College of cardinals to elect and provide, according to the cannons, a shepherd for the universal church."

As recounted by John Sweeney in a 2012 book, "The Pope Who Quit," Celestine V declared himself "useless," stepped down from the papal throne and removed his ring, tiara and mantle, handing them to the cardinals who had elected him; he then sat down on the floor.

He put on the dress of the simplest of friars – the gray habit of a Celestine hermit – and secreted away from the crowd outside to return to the mountains.

What will be next for Pope Benedict XVI? Is there a spiritual connection between the hermit pope and the scholar?

Malachy’s predictions

St. Malachy, an Irish saint and the archbishop of Armagh, who lived from 1094 to 1l48, is attributed with a vision of the last 112 popes from which he created a prophetic list. He named with a descriptive epithet each pope in succession from Celestine II, who was pope from 1143-1144, to the present day.

Malachy described the last pope as "Petrus Romanus," or "Peter the Roman," writing: "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock among many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people."

In 1880, M. J. O’Brien, a Catholic priest, published in Dublin a book providing a "historical and critical account" of the prophecy of St. Malachy regarding the succession of the popes.

O’Brien understood that Malachy’s prophecy was declaring that in the reign of the pope identified as Petrus Romanus the end of the world would come, culminating in Jesus Christ descending to earth for Judgment Day.

O’Brien said Malachy’s vision occurred while he was in Rome for a month, visiting and praying at the Eternal City’s many historical and holy sites.

"The sight of the ruins of Pagan Rome, the tombs of the Apostles, the thought of so many thousands of martyrs, the presence of [Pope] Innocent II, who had been obligated to wander so many years in France and elsewhere on account of the anti-pope Anaclete – all this, I say, filled the mind of St. Malachy with deep and sad reflections and he was forced to cry out in the words of the old prophets: ‘Usquequo, Domine non misereberis Sion?’ – ‘How long, O Lord! wilt Thou not have mercy on Sion?’"

O'Brien continued:

And God Answered: "Until the end of the world the Church will be both militant and triumphant. Until the end of time the sufferings of my passion and the mysteries of my cross must be continued on earth, and I shall be with you until the end of the world." And then was unfolded before the gaze of the holy bishop of Armagh the long line of illustrious pilots who were to guide the storm-tossed bark of Peter until the end.

Malachy gave his manuscript to Innocent II, born Gregorio Papareschi, who was pope from 1130 to 1143. Innocent placed the manuscript in the Vatican archives, where the document remained unknown until its discovery in 1590.

Through the past 900 years, various critics have questioned the authenticity and the accuracy of St. Malachy’s prophecy, often arguing the methods employed by some of Malachy’s interpreters in applying his epithets to certain popes have been tortuous.

In a modern 1969 version of Malachy’s prophecies, Archbishop H. E. Cardinale, the apostolic nuncio to Belgium and Luxembourg, wrote "it is fair to say the vast majority of Malachy’s predictions about successive Popes is amazingly accurate – always remembering that he gives only a minimum of information."

Judge rebukes Muslim group's effort to silence opposition

by Art Moore 

A federal judge’s rebuke of the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations supports claims that the Muslim lobby group is abusing the court system in an attempt to silence opposition, says a lawyer for defendants in the case.
CAIR, which was tied to a major terrorist-financing scheme, “has a long history of filing lawsuits that cost millions of dollars to its victims,” Daniel Horowitz told WND.
“It is the same tactic that Scientology and other groups have used,” he noted.
CAIR filed suit in 2009 against former federal investigator Dave Gaubatz and his son, Chris Gabatz, after the two carried out an undercover investigation of the Islamic group. The Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C., and three of its employees were later added to the suit for their part in commissioning a documentary.
Evidence from the investigation was published in the WND Books expose’ “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America.” The book documents CAIR’s support of radical jihad, recounting its origin as a front group for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, the worldwide movement that has stated its intent to transform the U.S. into a Saudi-style Islamic state.

CAIR alleges it suffered damage after the younger Gaubatz, posing as an intern, obtained access to some 12,000 pages of CAIR internal documents under false pretenses and made recordings of officials and employees without consent.
On Friday, federal Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia denied CAIR’s motion to extend discovery of the Center for Security Policy and several of its employees.

Sources confirm U.S. gun-running to jihadists

by Aaron Klein 

WND has reconfirmed with multiple knowledgeable Middle Eastern security sources that the U.S. special mission in Benghazi was used to coordinate Arab arms shipments and other aid to the so-called rebels fighting in Libya and later in Syria.
WND first broke the story on the Benghazi gun-running issue just 13 days after the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks.

The scandal has garnered more news media attention since Sen. Rand Paul asked outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the claims during hearings over the Benghazi affair two weeks ago.
Clinton claimed she did not know whether the U.S. special mission was involved in gun-running.
Paul asked Clinton: “Is the U. S. involved with any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling, anyhow transferring weapons to Turkey out of Libya?
“To Turkey?” Clinton asked. “I will have to take that question for the record. Nobody has ever raised that with me.”
Continued Paul: “It’s been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that may have weapons, and what I’d like to know is the annex that was close by, were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons, and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries, any countries, Turkey included?”

Clinton replied, “Well, senator, you’ll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. I will see what information is available.”
“You’re saying you don’t know?” asked Paul.
“I do not know,” Clinton said. “I don’t have any information on that.”
That section of the exchange with Paul was almost entirely ignored by media, which instead focused on the Republican senator’s earlier statement that if he were president he would have relieved Clinton of her post.

Now knowledgeable security sources have reconfirmed WND’s original reporting on the use of the Benghazi mission in aiding the rebels who are known to be saturated by al-Qaida and other Islamic terrorist groups.
In September, WND broke the story that the slain U.S. ambassador, Christopher Stevens, played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria, according to Egyptian security officials.
In November, Middle Eastern security sources further described both the U.S. mission and nearby CIA annex in Benghazi as the main intelligence and planning center for U.S. aid to the rebels that was being coordinated with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Among the tasks performed inside the building was collaborating with countries, most notably Turkey, on the recruitment of fighters – including jihadists – to target Assad’s regime, the security officials said.
While the White House has been largely mum on the alleged use of the Benghazi mission to aid the rebels, Obama administration officials did claim the White House rejected a plan to supply arms to the Syrian rebels.
If, indeed, President Obama rejected the arms plan, as reported last weekend by the New York Times, it would mean the White House went against the recommendations of outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta; Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; and then-CIA Director David Petraeus.
The plan was said to have been generated by Petraeus and Clinton.
In Senate hearings on Benghazi last week, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., asked Panetta and Dempsey whether they had supported a plan “that we provide weapons to the resistance in Syria.”
“We do,” Panetta replied.
“You did support that?” McCain asked again.
“We did,” added Dempsey, who was sitting next to Panetta.
Neither Dempsey nor Panetta elaborated on their positions.
The New York Times reported the White House rebuffed the Clinton-Petraeus plan developed last summer to arm and train Syrian rebels.

The Times, citing unnamed Obama administration officials, reported the White House rejected the Clinton-Petraeus proposal over concerns it could draw the U.S. into the Syrian conflict and the arms could fall into the wrong hands.
The plan reportedly called for vetting rebels and arming a group of fighters with the assistance of Arab countries.
WND reported Stevens himself was leading the vetting efforts, working with the Saudis to send names of potential jihadi recruits to U.S. security organizations for review. Names found to be directly involved in previous attacks against the U.S., including in Iraq and Afghanistan, were ultimately not recruited by the Saudis to fight in Syria.
The scheme appears to mirror the Petraeus-Clinton plan as described by the New York Times.

Secret activities
According to the 39-page report released last month by independent investigators probing the attacks at the diplomatic facility, the U.S. mission in Benghazi was set up without the knowledge of the new Libyan government, as WND reported.
“Another key driver behind the weak security platform in Benghazi was the decision to treat Benghazi as a temporary, residential facility, not officially notified to the host government, even though it was also a full-time office facility,” the report states. “This resulted in the Special Mission compound being excepted from office facility standards and accountability under the Secure Embassy Construction and Counterterrorism Act of 1999 (SECCA) and the Overseas Security Policy Board (OSPB).”
The report, based on a probe led by former U.S. diplomat Thomas Pickering, calls the facility a “Special U.S. Mission.”
During the Libyan revolution against Moammar Gadhafi’s regime, the U.S. admitted to directly arming the rebel groups.

Stevens himself first arrived in Libya on a cargo ship to serve as the official U.S. liaison to Libyan opposition, reportedly working directly with Abdelhakim Belhadj of the al-Qaida-tied Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.
At the time of the U.S. aid to the Libyan fighters, rebel leader Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi acknowledged in an interview that a significant number of the Libyan rebels were al-Qaida fighters, many of whom had fought U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He insisted his fighters “are patriots and good Muslims, not terrorists,” but he added that the “members of al-Qaida are also good Muslims and are fighting against the invader.”

From the beginning, U.S. media reports on the events in Benghazi have been misleading.
The vast majority of media coverage worldwide refers to the U.S. facility that was attacked as a “consulate,” even though the government itself has been careful to call it a “mission.”
A consulate typically refers to the building that houses a consul, who is the official representative of the government of one state in the territory of another. The U.S. consul in Libya, Jenny Cordell, works out of the embassy in Tripoli.
Consulates at times function as junior embassies, providing services related to visas, passports and citizen information.
On Aug. 26, about two weeks before his was killed, Ambassador Stevens attended a ceremony marking the opening of consular services at the Tripoli embassy.
The main role of a consulate is to foster trade with the host and care for its own citizens who are traveling or living in the host nation.
Diplomatic missions, on the other hand, maintain a more generalized role. A diplomatic mission is simply a group of people from one state or an international inter-governmental organization present in another state to represent matters of the sending state or organization in the receiving state.
However, according to the State Department investigation, the building was a “U.S. Special Mission” set up without the knowledge of the Libyan government.

Stewart Rhodes Introduces
"Molon Labe County Project"
 To 3000 New York Gun Owners In Fiery Speech!

Stewart Rhodes Speaks at Albany New York Gun Rights Rally on February 12 

Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes gave a fiery speech to approximately 3,000 New York gun owners, urging them to refuse to comply to the "SAFE Act," to refuse to disarm, to nullify at every level. He also urged them to make sure their county was a "Molon Labe" county, asking them "is your county a 'come and take it' county, or is it a 'bend over and take it' county? Which is it?! Find out now!"  

He told them to make sure all the gun owners and veterans in their county are ready to stand up, and will commit to refuse to comply, and then go to the sheriff and the police chief of their town and put them on notice that they are expected to choose sides. He told the crowd to use April 19, 2013, the upcoming anniversary of the battle of Lexington and Concord, in 1775, as the deadline for their sheriff, police chiefs [and all other oath sworn public servants] to choose sides - "are they patriots, or are they redcoats?"

At the rally Oath Keepers had the effigies of Cuomo, Schumer, Bloomberg, and other oath breaking traitors dressed up in red coats, with signs hanging around their necks saying "Oath Breaker," "Red Coat" and "Traitor".

Then retired New York State Police (Highway Patrol) officer John Wallace, a member of Oath Keepers, led thousands of New Yorkers in an oath renewal/oath taking ceremony, pledging to defend the Constitution and to not disarm.
