Occidental College Transcripts Reveal Obama Claimed Foreign Citizenship to Get Scholarship

Update...The following post, although running rampant throughout the blogosphere today, may very well be a hoax.  

In light of being unable to independently confirm the information posted and in our never ending pursuit of truth, justice and the American way, I would take it with a grain of salt.  ...or, maybe not!

Just released yesterday, Americans for Freedom of Information, using a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California, Occidental College records show that Barry Soertoro received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate.

Reported by the blog HardCoreNews Social Network, the transcript shows that Obama (Soertoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program.

To qualify for the scholarship a student must claim foreign citizenship.

I will let you draw your own conclusions...

To add a little more fuel to the fire read this.

Obama...always on the wrong side

  It's beginning to look like the Cambridge police incident (The Cambridge police acted stupidly!) set the precedent for this presidency.
  The President of the United States, who reads numerous letters from citizens every night as attested to by his wife, apparently didn't read the letters from the parents of the two British citizens who were murdered for being white in Florida.
  Meh. Not interested.
  Apparently the torching of a White boy for being white is also of no consequence. Just a boy, after all.
  Meh. Not interested.
  The Department of Justice decides not to charge New Black Panther voter intimidators. 
  Gun running in which Border Agents and hundreds of Mexicans are killed.
  Bleh. How boring.
  A bankrupt country?
  Ho hum. Just print some more money!
  Your Treasury Secretary hasn't paid taxes? Who cares? Appoint him anyway!
  How about give away our nukes? And our country's DEFENSE SECRETS.
  Yikes! The globe is in a particularly peaceful state right now so why worry?
  Coal. Oil. Health care. Auto. These industries are inconsequential and need government control. 
  Our current POTUS also has a wonderful grasp of sports, having placed his faith in numerous teams only to apparently curse those teams from ever being winners in that playoff.
Kansas Jayhawks
Olympics to Chicago
Colts Superbowl
Chicago Bulls
Philadelphia Eagles
Pittsburgh Steelers
University of Kentucky
Indianapolis Colts
  We have the evolution of a story in which the media has decided who's guilty without knowing any of the facts. Take a 5 year old picture of a 17 year old child and blast that to the media. 
  Take the mug shot of the aggressor and run those 2 pics side by side. 
  Make sure not to show the gold teeth and gang tattoos of the 17 year old child, who had exhibited classic symptoms of a high schooler going down the wrong path because that might prejudice the case.
  So the POTUS goes on tv and says the 17 year old child looks like his son
  Numerous racial incidents happening across the country are irrelevant to the POTUS. He, after all, has a bomb proof car and bus to ride around the country in. Racial tensions are high around the country. The DOJ AG calls one race "my people." The rest? Meh.
  A congressman goes on the House floor wearing a hoodie, and proclaiming solidarity inciting racial hatred while men wearing hoodies in solidarity murder 2 people and wound 11 others in his district but these incidents are not worth the POTUS's time.
  Thirteen year old daughter wants to take her classmates to Mexico for spring break? Charge it to the taxpayers.
  Hey, and if the wife wants to travel the world on the taxpayer dime, that's not even a problem! Just charge the taxpayers, many of whom aren't in Las Vegas, as per their POTUS's command a few years ago.
  Squander great quantities of time when your party has complete control of the government on an unconstitutional takeover of a private industry. Regardless whether people want it or not, ram it through.
  Support Jon Corzine. Martha Coakley. Creigh Deeds.
  So let's get this straight.
  Our current POTUS had made some pretty good decisions, don't you think?
  Great judgment.
  We are in good hands.
  By all means, let's reelect this man.

Dumber Than a Box of Rocks...

Chris Matthews of MSNBC's Hardball, and left-wing lackey, lives in The  Coccoon along with many other MSM talking heads.  

Here he is, dumfounded, that Obamacare might actually be stricken down by the SCOTUS.

How can you keep your audience informed if you yourself are deliberately misinformed, by voluntary personal choice?

They’re so convinced of their own correctness — and so determined to believe conservatives are either a) corrupt, b) stupid or c) deluded — that they find themselves repeatedly astonished to discover conservatives are in fact capable of a) advancing and defending their own powerful arguments, b) effectively countering weak liberal arguments and c) exposing the soft underbelly of liberal self-satisfaction as they do so.

That’s what happened this week. There appears to be no question in the mind of anyone who read the transcripts or listened to the oral arguments that the conservative lawyers and justices made mincemeat out of the Obama administration’s advocates and the liberal members of the court.
This came as a startling shock to the liberals who write about the court.

Liberals just chose to ignore relevant information about the world they live in, and then call themselves sophisticated for having chosen to be more stupid than God made them.

Go Figure...

Yesterday, Rep. Bobby Rush, former(?) Black Panther, launched a tirate on the floor the U.S. Congress while wearing a hoodie to indicate his support of Trayvon Martin.  

Last night, thirteen people were shot and four of them killed in the district of south Chicago that Rep. Bobby Rush represents.  

The victims ranged in age from 16 to 25.

Obama Administration Has Fallback Plan

In light of the possibility of the Supreme Court striking down Obamacare in its entirety, the word around DC among insiders, is that the administration is already warning of summer chaos if the SC decision goes against them.

They are calling it a "Healthcare Warfare" plan.  Their plan is to screw up the administrative machine so badly that there will be delays, confusion and then, the inevitable ANGER.

Obama will then point to the chaos and tell the American people "I told you so!"

His handlers will then run him against Congress, the Supreme Court, alleged racism and Wall Street -- the "white" knight (as it were) riding the charging stallion to save the nation and the sheeple who live in it.

The Anointed One will be running against everything and for nothing.

The word is that the "mandate" is about 80% gone and the rest of Obamacare is about 50/50.

When this happens, it will be no surprise.  I say, bring it on big mouth!

A Classless Act...

The East Room of the White House is a chamber, some might argue a sacred chamber, where many historical events have been held.

President Abraham Lincoln's funeral was held there following his assassination in 1865.  The Civil Rights Act was signed there in 1964.  

These were two important events and historically related to African Americans.

Along comes 2012 and Michelle Obama, disregarding the sanctity of this hallowed hall, using it as an exercise room for her friends for an upcoming broadcast of The Biggest Loser.

As far as I am concerned, the biggest loser in that room is Michelle Obama.

Malik Shabazz: We'll burn Detroit

  Claiming it is "white supremacy" for the state to appoint a city manager for Detroit, Malik Shabazz threatened to "burn Detroit" before they let the state take over management of the city, even though the current occupants have bankrupted the city.
  View the childish and bizarre behavior here, complete with a rendition of "We Shall Overcome."
  The residents claim the mayor (Dave Bing) isn't allowing them to make money.
  Residents also claimed it was "white on black crime" to appoint a city manager.
  A Detroit city councilwoman demanded of Snyder that the city administrators have input on any decision so that it is not like a "master slave relationship."

Compare Hutaree treatment with New Black Panthers

  It's been bizarre today, watching the nasty behavior of some people in this country, including law enforcement to inflame the resentment and racism of certain individuals.
  In one situation, we have Dick Gregory claiming that Israel confiscated the body of Treyvon to harvest organs from it.
  In the video of this, we are treated to a bizarre juxtaposition of American citizens holding their 21st century iPhones up to record the bizarre, paranoid and viciously untruthful diatribe.
  How can we be so blind and prejudiced in this decade?
  In another situation, we have the New Black Panther party claiming they will have raised a million dollars to take George Zimmerman, dead or alive.
  Up in Detroit, Malik Shabazz in Detroit declared that if the state tried to appoint a city manager, he'd "burn the city down" because it was being run by "white . He walked that statement back today, but still...
  Today a sane judge did the right thing by dropping the charges against the Hutaree, who seemed to be not much more than a few outlanders who talked about hating the government. 
  Today the judge dismissed most of the charges:

But there never was an attack. Defense lawyers say highly offensive remarks about police and the government were wrongly turned into a high-profile criminal case that drew public praise from U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who called Hutaree a "dangerous organization." 
Militia leader David Stone's "statements and exercises do not evince a concrete agreement to forcibly resist the authority of the United States government," Roberts said Tuesday. "His diatribes evince nothing more than his own hatred for — perhaps even desire to fight or kill — law enforcement; this is not the same as seditious conspiracy."
  So we are treated to the spectacle of the Justice Department and local authorities allowing Shabazz to threaten fire and the Panthers to threaten death for a local citizen with no intervention contrasted with some White pathetic Michigan hill people being brought in on ridiculous charges.
  Where's the justice in this?
  And worse, where's the Department of Justice? 

Hanoi Jane Fonda to Play Nancy Reagan in Film

It never ceases to amaze me how left-wing Hollywood can be so in-your-face these days.

Hanoi Jane Fonda is scheduled to play (of all people) Nancy Reagan in an upcoming film.  

The dichotomy blows my mind.

This traitor to our country gave aid and comfort to our enemies, the North Vietnamese, during the Vietnam war.  

Pictured in Hanoi, manning an anti-aircraft gun while on a mission with her traitorous friends including Ramsey Clark, she visited the Hanoi Hilton where POW's were tortured and held prisoners.

During her visit she was secretly handed messages from U.S. POW's which she promptly turned over to their NVA captors.  Those POW's were tortured unmercifully because of her traitorous acts.  

Some of those POW's were friends of mine.

In any other time, she would have been stood up against a wall, blindfolded and shot for treason.  In my mind, and in the mind of every Vietnam Vet, she is worse than scum.

This is one movie that I will not attend and we will never forget.

Trayvon's tweets

  Hey, we're old here at Tea Party at Perrysburg and, thus, in some ways probably more provincial than the mainstream of today's youth. Sure, we swear now and then when we get really worked up, but the kind of language we're lookin' at at this Tweeter is pretty raw.
  Daily Caller has obtained the tweets of the "innocent child" Trayvon Martin and they're pretty raunchy. His handle was NO_LIMIT_NIGGA.
  Here are some of the things his tweets revealed, although us old folks probably need an interpreter to understand most of the tweets:

  • He warns friends against asking specifically through Twitter for certain, um, items, suggesting some to speculate he was dealing drugs.
  • He bragged about being tardy to class repeatedly, bragging he was "cool" with the teacher and implying it wasn't a problem.
  • He brags about sex, mocks someone for giving it away for free. Lots of graphic sexual references.

There's more here, if you care to ruin your day with the depressing attitudes and language of today's "innocent children."

Cashin' in! Obama Campaign Markets Gray Hoodies

I wonder if the Obama campaign will be paying Trayvon Martin's family royalties on it's new hoodie. This whole episode is a calculated political maneuver to compliment OWS and the HHS mandate war on religion.

Spitzer to Fill in for Olbermann

Yo Elliot Spitzer fans. If you've missed your hero since CNN canned client number 9 relief is on the way. Spitzer will be filling in for vacationing Keith Olbermann this week on Current TV. Current TV is owned by Al Gore.

Things you may not know about Trayvon/Zimmerman

  The press and the grievance lobby have leaped on certain facts about the Trayvon Martin/ George Zimmerman case, yet completely ignored or have been uninterested in other pertinent facts. Thousands of dollars have been offered to find and/or kill Zimmerman and even Hollywood's Spike Lee has gotten into the act by posting Zimmerman's home address repeatedly on Twitter.
  Though currently sentiment is running high against Zimmerman, this may change soon as more becomes known. The sad truth is, as Powerline exposes the facts, that those who are agitating for the head of Zimmerman ignore Black crimes in other neighborhoods.
  This post is not to defend Zimmerman; we don't know all the facts yet. The idea is that we don't return to the days of racial lynching simply because of public sentiment, particularly based on erroneous or biased reporting.
  Did you think about this?
  • Zimmerman's father is white, his mother Hispanic. Why should this make a difference? 
  • If he were the victim, would he be described as Hispanic? 
  • Did Black anti-semitic leaders such as Farrakhan and Jackson initially think Zimmerman is Jewish?
  • Why do we need to know Zimmerman cried for days? Why is his race so important?
  • Media has described Zimmerman as being a "serial caller" to the police and a zealous pseudocop. Apparently this makes him bad. Yet how many times have you heard that Zimmerman's neighborhood has suffered a "rash of break-ins", "numerous burglaries" "including one three doors away in which burglars took a TV and laptops"in recent days?
  • What's the point of a neighborhood watch if the watchers are criticized for calling police? UPDATE: Just heard on the radio that Zimmerman called fewer times than previously reported. 
  • Why was Trayvon's photograph Photoshopped? Why are so many younger photos of him as young as 12 being used?
  • A witness says Zimmerman was the victim. Have you heard that?
  • Zimmerman's neighborhood is diverse, 50% white, 50% minority.
  • Zimmerman mentored two Black children. Their parents do not feel he's a racist.
  • Trayvon Martin was suspended from school for ten days just prior to the incident. Why? You don't get suspended from school for ten days for tardiness, as some have claimed, but for "being in an unauthorized area"?
  • Why were Trayvon's school records sealed if he has no behavioral history?
  • Trayvon was staying with his father many miles away from his home school during his school suspension.
Here are the school guidelines for ten day suspension, available here:
A principal may suspend a student from school for one (1) to ten (10) days for
persistent disobedience and/or serious misconduct.  Principals take this action
when they have exhausted informal corrective strategies, or when they have at least considered those alternatives and rejected them as inappropriate in a given situation. Outdoor suspension is appropriate under the following conditions:
The student’s presence in school presents a physical danger to the student or others;
• A “cooling off” period is needed  to relieve tensions and relieve pressure; and/or
• The student and/or parent/guardian refuse an alternative to suspensio
For which of these offenses was Trayvon suspended for ten days? ANSWER: drug possession. Question: How is that "being in an unauthorized area," as previously reported at the school?
  • At 17, Trayvon Martin was heavily tattooed and had gold teeth. This image does not fit with the media narrative.
  • Trayvon's recently deleted Twitter account name was NO_LIMIT_NIGGA.
  • Gang activity?
  • Zimmerman, according to witnesses, was beaten by Trayvon, slamming his head into the sidewalk and initially knocking him down with one punch. 
  • Although Zimmerman was heavier than Trayvon, Trayvon was younger and taller.
  • Trayvon was a former football player, a "swift athlete" who loved sports, actively involved in sports in previous years.
  • Although the media has reported that Trayvon had no police record, "only serious felonies appear on juveniles' public criminal records."
Wagist has more here.
  Another comparison of the photos going around. 
  Sharpton is in Detroit tonight to protest this. One of the reverends said on WJR this morning the new meme: You can wear a hoodie and be a goodie" or something brilliant like that. Previously people understood that types of clothing signify behaviors.
H/T Shenandoah
Again, this is not to excuse criminal behavior, if it is proven.
The truth should not have an AGENDA.
This blog post was UPDATED at 3:18: 
Where'd this new witness appear from miraculously? Why wasn't she around before the uproar?
UPDATE II: Hannity claims the marijuana suspension is irrelevant, that the kid was just getting candy and iced tea. Well, first. Does Hannity know anything about the effects of Mary Jane? Second, if the young man was a user and perhaps a dealer, as some suspect from seeing postings on his Facebook and  Twitter accounts, that certainly has relevance.
UPDATE III: Lots emerging about Trayvon's troubled behavior, including a suspicion that he had jewelry that didn't belong to him in his backpack. He was suspended a number of times for other reasons, dropped out of sports and was on a troubled path, all of which the parents claim is irrelevant. His mother has trademarked his name. Read it here.

More violence encouraged from Hollywood

  Remember the shock and horror that reverberated around the Leftist nation when Sarah Palin had crosshairs on targeted districts for Republican wins?
  Remember the gasping when Rush called someone a "slut" (and then apologized)?
  Does anyone think that Leftists will exhibit the same kind of shock at a new "funny" movie in which a teenager and a terminally ill patient run around the country shooting people they don't like?
  Will this movie inspire moroons to go on crazy rampages, like the New Black Panthers who are advertising for thousands of people to kill someone they don't like in Florida?
  Funny. Haha.
  This is REALLY funny.
  Leftist Hollywood just really gets it!

Get Obama a Speech Writer

Does Obama have just one welcoming speech for allies? Probably the American press corps has picked up on the President's acutely limited collection of platitudes but we have to get this compilation of cliches from a Danish reporter who punches above his weight.

Violent threats surround Zimmerman

  The situation in Florida surrounding George Zimmerman has accelerated greatly, with Spike Lee tweeting his home address and encouraging others to retweet it.
  The New Black Panthers are trolling for 10,000 volunteers to hunt him down and kill him.
  Race baiters Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are pimping the crowd to encourage violence.
  Obviously Zimmerman, whose nose was broken and head injured during the fight, is in hiding; he also has a wife and family in hiding because of the violent threats and accelerating excitement incited by politicians and grievance mongers.

Obama Assumes Dictatorial Powers

This Dick Morris video vividly explains that this far reaching order authorizes Obama “in the event of a potential threat to the security of the United States, to take actions necessary to ensure the availability of adequate resources and production capability, including services and critical technology, for national defense requirements."

Rick Santorum's "Obamaville"

This may be the best ad so far this political season.  No matter what your thoughts are about Rick Santorum, this ad hits the nail on the head.

The Four Best Arguments Against Obamacare

Tomorrow the United States Supreme Court begins hearing arguments on the constitutionality of the individual mandates included in Obamacare, and may well strike down the whole bill.

It has been two years since this wildly unpopular bill was forced through Congress by the use of every crooked trick and lie in the books and immediately signed into law by Obama.

General wisdom is that the bill or parts of it will be struck down by the Supreme Court.

Damon Root at has a compelling argument why the Court will strike down the individual mandate.

There are arguments, both pro and con, on whether the striking down of the bill will hurt Obama in the coming election.  One can only hope...

Dear Leader unconcerned about massive debt

  If you can stand it, you might want to read what Mark Steyn is saying about this country's debt and what the rest of the world is saying, which is that it's over for this country. We'll never be able to walk it back or elect politicians who are able to walk it back.
 Conservative Outlooks:
In 2011, DOI distributed a nationwide survey with the questionable purpose of measuring the societal, non-economic value of removing the four dams.  The survey consisted of several waves of mailings, some of which included a two dollar bill used as an incentive to respond and a letter stating that DOI will send an additional $20 if the completed survey is returned before a specific deadline.  According to the Federal Register, an estimated 10,400 households were contacted about the survey.  In questioning yesterday before the House Water and Power Subcommittee, the Bureau of Reclamation was unable to provide an accounting of how much had been spent on this survey.
  Yes, you read that right. Our taxpayer dollars mailed out in 2 dollar bills randomly to people in the hope that they would fill out a survey. 
  Chicken feed, perhaps, compared to the trillion dollar stimulus.
  But what was the survey about? the need to remove four privately owned dams on the Klamath River in Oregon and California.
  But Dear Leader isn't worried. He's planning the next vacation and fundraisers. From Director Blue, who doesn't really like the new Obama schlockumentary very much:
ANd our opinion from this blog:
  Barack Hussein Obama is busy stirring up division between the races and classes, sticking his nose in every place he can to make people unhappy with the wonderful lives we lead in this country.
  You're probably familiar with the Cloward Piven strategy formulated in 1966. The Left has been waiting for these circumstances for years.
Michael Reisch and Janice Andrews wrote that Cloward and Piven "proposed to create a crisis in the current welfare system – by exploiting the gap between welfare law and practice – that would ultimately bring about its collapse and replace it with a system of guaranteed annual income. They hoped to accomplish this end by informing the poor of their rights to welfare assistance, encouraging them to apply for benefits and, in effect, overloading an already overburdened bureaucracy."[4]
  Collapse the system by overwhelming it, then reshape it with a guaranteed income for everyone. 
  So what do present day OWS have in common with Cloward and Piven?
Group conflict, spelling political crisis for the local party apparatus, would thus become acute as welfare rolls mounted and the strains on local budgets became more severe.”
  Don't think so, chumps.
  The troops are out to make sure this gets stopped.
  Rock on, Baby Boomers.

Media frenzy yields little about Trayvon

  A shining LA Times article entitled "Obama's shining 'If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon' moment" in which Obama is exalted because he said this:
"If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon."
With those 10 simple words, President Obama said so much on Friday.
Obama was at the White House -- introducing his nominee to take over as World Bank president -- when he was asked by a reporter to address the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
He also offered this somewhat stock comment:
"I think all of us have to do some soul-searching to figure out how does something like this happen. And that means that we examine the laws and the context for what happened, as well as the specifics of the incident."
  And now, from MyFoxTampaBay, we learn that a witness says the aggressor, the beater, the criminal, the violent attacker was Trayvon, who wore a hoodie, to which his friends have jumped to say he was pure as the driven snow, which he may be and certainly looks it, but it must be said that USA Today loaded the aforementioned with lots of sympathetic vignettes and descriptions intended to incite support. MyFoxTampaBay:
"The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: 'help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911," he said.
Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red.
The witness only wanted to be identified as "John," and didn't not want to be shown on camera.
His statements to police were instrumental, because police backed up Zimmerman's claims, saying those screams on the 911 call are those of Zimmerman.
  Like father, like son?
  The apple doesn't fall far from the tree? 
  Obviously the witness himself doesn't want to be identified, considering the lawless behavior exhibited by the populace these days.
  Meanwhile, old Geraldo is in hot water because he said people shouldn't dress provocatively in hoodies because in all those government warnings about aggressors they're wearing hoodies. 
  Though DHS says all terrorists are probably white, note that wearing a hoodie indicates a criminal is burrowed underneath.

 Now all the sympathizers are wearing the hoodie as a symbol of solidarity with other, um, government designated criminals.
  I think we can all agree that the Cambridge police acted stupidly.
UPDATE: Threats against Zimmerman, naturally.
UPDATE 2: Why was Trayvon's photo altered?

Stand Up for Religious Freedom, Toledo, Ohio

  Friday, March 23, a rally was held in Toledo to support religious freedom in the United States. In attendance were a number of Catholic high school students, assorted Catholic worshipers and religious notaries including Father Blair of the Diocese. Also substantially in attendance were people of other (or no) faith, including Tea Partiers who support religious freedom and oppose the HHS mandate.
  My guess is that there were about 6-700 people in attendance; there were even hecklers there, though not for long or too loudly.
  Here are a few pics:

  Here's the video from Channel Eleven.
  Note the woman who "disagreed" with the rally; she's the one with the red hair. She deposited herself at the rally with 2 other women and one man and shouted a few nasty things, including "Stop lyin'!" to the female speaker and then lumbered off when someone started taping her.
  In truth she and her little band were probably there a total of ten minutes, just long enough to disrupt, complain to the high schoolers standing around them and be interviewed by the press, who eagerly sought her out.
  After their interview, they lumbered off down the sidewalk, one dancing in glee. They were wearing nametags, so I assume they were on their "break" from a local business. Gee, I wonder which one.

Here's our video with excerpts from the rally.

So why ARE we supporting failed green alternatives?

  So we have all these liberals defending the vast billions of dollars spent on so-called green alternative fuels, saying it's a nascent developing field that will pay off in the long run.
  It's short sighted and foolish to ridicule these green failures in the short run, the apologists declare!
  So what excuse ARE we using to continue to pour billions of dollars into so-called green alternative forms of energy that cannot sustain themselves in the marketplace?
  It'll pay off in the long run?
  Any "industry" created by the government that cannot sustain itself in the marketplace becomes an entitlement.
  And, of course, provides a kickback to the politicians funneling the money their way.
  Are we claiming it'll save money in the long run because right now it's taxpayer dollars that are being wasted? Why would any reasonable company sink money in that hole?
  Are we claiming it's practical to suggest burning algae will overtake gasoline?
  Are we seriously claiming the green industries create more jobs than fossil fuels, regardless the number of green jobs that come and go almost daily?
  Are we claiming we're creating startup companies because so far that's not working.
  Or are we claiming RESEARCH is the purpose of why we're pouring billions of taxpayer dollars into an obviously ineffective and unprofitable sector?
  What are we researching?
  How much the American people will put up with before booting the current administration from office?
  But, hey, the New York Times has got his back!

Grievance monger in chief

  This deeply into the Obama administration's reign of terror, it's hard to feel anything but absolute disgust with the way they handle just about every tragedy or economic situation.
  The latest thrill to go up the back of my neck is Obama's comment that the young man who was shot in Florida looked like his son.
  Talk about an opportunist. In the interest of ALWAYS bringing his supposedly adorable daughters into EVERY situation and conversation, suddenly Obama felt a need to give S & M a brother:
"If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon," Obama said in his first comments about the shooting, acknowledging the racial element in the case. 
"Obviously, this is a tragedy," Obama told reporters. "I can only imagine what these parents are going through. And when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids."
  In the interest of being a uniter and not a divider, of COURSE the nation's top executive raced into yet another race related argument that will inflame 10% of the population, screaming righteously in the streets before knowing the facts, nursing the perpetual grievances that we've had to listen to for years.
  Just give racemongers like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton an excuse to jet to a state wearing their Armani suits, diamond rings and sporting chips on their shoulder that bowl over anyone standing near them.
  Sure, the nation's top executive and judicial official are Black.
  But Blacks are under attack.
  That makes it okay for the New Black Panther party, which was recently encouraged by Eric Holder's Justice Department by their dismissal of blatant voter intimidation, to declare a dead or alive hit on someone whose name sounds Jewish.
  It makes no difference if George Zimmerman is Hispanic as his father says and he looks.
  Because really. Who cares about skin color? What difference should it make if the guy is White or Hispanic?
  All that matters is that the grievance racemongers have another issue they can beat into the ground, scream about, feel abused by and generally demand some kind of reparations for.
  What kind of leaders are these.
  It's hard not to scream at the tv these days.
  Here are the facts that should discourage the race and grievance mongering from American Thinker. The facts are the facts:
Certainly it's true that in the past, blacks have been victims of whites.  But today the reality is quite different from what the street mobs, the government, the media and the P.C. crowd would have us believe. Far from being victims of white oppression, blacks today are disproportionately perpetrators of violent crimes against whites and against other blacks. According to data from the FBI Uniform Crime Reports, in 2009, "whites" -- a category that includes Hispanics  -- were known to be responsible for 5,286 murders. Blacks, a mere 13% of the population, were known to be responsible for 5,980 murders. In 2005, the New Century Foundation's "Color of Crime" report found that "Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black" (emphasis mine). Also in 2005, the Department of Justice reported that one-third of rapes committed against white women (approximately 37,000) were perpetrated by blacks, while less than ten -- statistically zero -- rapes of black women were committed by whites. 
  That said, Powerline's John Hinderaker says the police should have charged Zimmerman for multiple reasons:
 The local authorities should charge Zimmerman with manslaughter, at a minimum, and try to prove their case with the various forms of evidence that are available. Based on what we now know, I would think their chance of success is good. But in any event, if a jury decides to the contrary, Martin’s family will have had its well-deserved day in court.

Emails Link Corzine to Missing Customer Funds

Following the saga of missing client at MF Global has been a thankless task. For months nothing appeared in the popular media or the blogosphere. Now at last it look as if
a House Financial Services subcommittee, not the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, not the do nothing corrupt DOJ has located an email that shows customer fund were used to cover an overdraft as per instructions from the Honorable Jon S. Corzine.
Edith O'Brien, an assistant treasurer who was among the employees involved in moving money at MF Global, wrote in the email that the $200 million transfer to an MF Global account at J.P. Morgan Chase. The subcommittee claims there is a chain of emails among Corzine, O'Brien, and
Laurie Ferber, the firm's chief legal counsel. Ms. O'Brien has been subpoenaed and plans to invoke her constitutional rights against self-incrimination, according to people familiar with the matter.

It's nice to see all this come to light but evidently it has been an open secret to those close to the case that J.P. Morgan had at least part of the money. The gentleman in the video below with the Buddy Holly glasses is James Koutoulas and if there are any heroes in this he is one. He is a hedge fund manager who hates lawyers so much he studied law so he could do his own legal work. Now he does pro bono work for investors whose money was taken from their accounts and pocketed by J. P. Morgan who knows full well the money rightfully belongs to MF Global's customers.

If ever a case called out for a special prosecutor this is that case. Not only is Corzine joined at the hip to the Obama administration but the Securities Exchange Commission falsified a time stamp on MF Global Annual Audited Report which blogged about in a post, Comparing MF Global to Watergate.

My First Stand-Up For Religious Freedom Rally

My wife and I attended our first Stand-Up for Religious Freedom rally. With the caveat that I am a poor judge of crowd size I would guess there were about tow hundred people in attendance. The opening invocation was given by Bishop Charles Thompson of the Evansville Catholic Diocese. I did see a number of Tea Party acquaintances but it was not a Tea Party crowd. The final speech was given by Father Claude Dusty Burns. Father Burns mentioned that he and several other priests spent six hours making a film in Chicago. He closed his speech with "We Hold These Truths" which he joked was easy considering how much practice he had. Photographs from rallies around the country can be found here.


Santorum, shut up

Shut up and get off the stage.
I'd say STFU if I wouldn't offend myself with swearing.
And put away the Etch a Sketch.
Reductio ad absurdum.

Lies and deceit among fools

  We're competing, of course, for the most ludicrous story in the news these days.
  You have Obama claiming his administration is cutting red tape by allowing a drilling project to go forward, even though he has absolutely no jurisdiction in the matter and even though the project had been in place for years already.
  Then you have him contradicting himself, claiming there's no "silver bullet" to lowering gas prices, even though oil companies who do all the work make FIVE CENTS profit on each gallon of gas while taxes on each gallon of gas run as high as SEVENTY CENTS per gallon.
 So he goes on tv and lies about the amount of oil this country uses and has as a natural resource. We produce much more than the 2 percent (15) Obama claims, and have access to much more, if we'd only drill there.
  While he lies he also mocks the truth.
  Then you have First Solar selling solar panels to itself and charging the taxpayers. Once again, the taxpayers are only incidentally considered when it comes to cost, even as the huge debt piles up during his term.
Here's the road of subsidies these solar panels followed from Perrysburg, Ohio, to St. Clair, Ontario. 
First Solar is an Arizona-based manufacturer of solar panels. In 2010, the Obama administration awarded the company $16.3 million to expand its factory in Ohio -- a subsidy Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland touted in his failed re-election bid that year. 
In September 2011, Ex-Im approved $455.7 million in loan guarantees to subsidize the sale of solar panels to two solar farms in Canada. That means if the solar farm ever defaults, the taxpayers pick up the tab, ensuring First Solar gets paid.
  And to compound the offenses, we have that ridiculous 17 minute propaganda film full of lies. "He would not dwell in blame" reverberates around the country, even as Obama blames anyone in sight.
  This compounds the lie that the Obamas perpetuate about Stanley Ann Dunham's death and her lack of health insurance, which is absolutely untrue. She had health insurance but wanted all her bills, including plane flights, paid for by an additional insurance, yet the Obamas continue to act as if she had nothing at all.
  In addition, Michelle Obama is lying by also saying Obama's grandmother was the VP of an "itty bitty bank" but had hit a glass ceiling that wouldn't allow her to advance because she was a female. CNS:
  She was referring to the president’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who was the first female vice president of the Bank of Hawaii. Barack and Michelle Obama’s 2009 tax return, posted on the White House website, indicates the Obamas inherited almost $500,000 worth of the bank’s stock from the president’s grandmother.
  Again. Untrue.
  Is there no honor among these people? 
  You know, people get fired for telling lies, using false stories to create an impression and manipulating facts to their own liking. 

Dick Morris See GOP Picking Up 10 Senate Seats

Dick Morris delivers an upbeat prediction on the Senate elections. Morris sees the Republicans picking up 10 seats. I think there is a fair possibility that things could get better. Morris is just plain wrong about Mandel leading Brown by 4 points. I double checked it and Mandel trails by 4 points. Let's hope Dick doesn't have many more errors.

Santorum Has Wide Lead in Louisiana

Interest seems to be waning in the GOP primary. Perhaps many have accepted the inevitability of Romney. Nationally Romney is leading but in the next primary state, Louisiana, Santorum is leading with 42 percent compared to Romney's 29 percent. Gingrich get 18 percent and Paul gets 8 percent. The latest PPP poll shows Santorum's entire lead in Louisiana is coming with the conservative side of the Republican Party. He leads Romney 50-23 with 'very conservative' voters, 44-22 with Tea Partiers, and 51-23 with Evangelicals. Santorum also appears to have the late momentum on his side. Among those who've decided who to vote for in the last few days he's at 47% to just 25% for Romney. For a change Santorum is getting the Catholic vote by a 40 to 35 percent margin.

US Oil Production May Double by 2020

Oil and gas production in the United States and North America is going to skyrocket in the next 8 years due to strides in natural resource extraction, write Citi analysts in a report published yesterday. In fact, they went so far as to call North America "the new Middle East," at least in terms of oil production. Ignoring this bullish forecast Obama continues to stick to his trite, hackneyed and downright idiotic assertion that the country is virtually out of oil. Citi economists expect oil production to as much as double for the continent in the next decade, and predict that the U.S. could overtake both Russia and Saudi Arabia in oil production by 2020

The only impediments to prosperity are Barack Obama and his corrupt Democratic Party. Not only will real gasoline prices decline over time, the Citi study sees a new industrial revolution in the United States brought on by cheap energy. The study also projects:

  • An additional 2.0 to 3.3 percent of GDP growth.

  • 3.6 million jobs by 2020.

  • The current account deficit could shrink by 80 to 90 percent due to energy exports at an already low level of production.

  • This is especially good news for retirees! The value of the dollar will increase by 1.6 to 5.4 percent.

  • Global political risks will diminish as the US won't be dependent on middle eastern oil.

You Be The Judge...

Obama's alleged forged Selective Service registration...

Stand Up For Religious Freedom Tomorrow

As my one of my partners noted in a previous post there will be a Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally in Lucas County. This is part of some 130 coordinated rallies that will be held at noon on Friday March 23 across the country. Please plan to attend. You can find a rally near you here. It will be interesting to see how the media treats these rallies. The first Tea Party rallies were treated with hostility in the media and dismissed as astroturf by the then Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues in the House. Those rallies eventually made Speaker Pelosi former Speaker Pelosi and sent 63 Democratic Congressmen into well earned unemployment.

Pay off my student loans! Let the whining begin!

  As expected, the push is on for the government, which is absolutely broke and printing money as fast as it can, to pay off student loans.
  As expected, is pushing a petition which is popping up on Facebook for students to sign.
  A trip to the website reveals the names and whining of people who complain they cannot now buy a house because they owe so much money from student loans.
  The problem with that "logic" is that if the school loans are paid off by the government, then these same leeches will buy houses they can't afford and expect the government to pay THOSE off too. These petitioners seem to think that if they have these debts paid off by the taxpayers then they'll "stimulate the economy" by going out and spending more accruing more debt!
  Where does it end?
As a result of more than 30 years of treating higher education as an individual commodity, rather than a public good and an investment in our collective future, those buried under the weight of their student loan debt are not buying homes or cars, not starting businesses or families, and they're not investing, inventing, innovating or otherwise engaged in any of the economically stimulative activities that we need all Americans to be engaged in if we're ever to dig ourselves out of the giant hole created by the greed of those at the very top.  
Now for the good news: there's finally hope on the horizon! Representative Hansen Clarke of Michigan has just introduced H.R. 4170, the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012, in the House of Representatives - legislation designed to lend a helping hand to those struggling under massive amounts of student loan debt. 
  Here are some of the comments from the petition. A common theme is that the loans are a "burden" and that education shouldn't have to cost anything. Apparently these people didn't consider going to a cheaper school or working while they went to school like the rest of us.
  The push to make education free as a "right" is on, just as the idea of overwhelming the system with legal complaints, debt and protests is on.
  Let the begging begin!
I have a Bechelor's in Business and a MBA and am having a hard time getting an iterview because of my education. I have been told repeatedly that I am a risky hire because the company knows if the economy ever were to improve that I would leave immediately. Companies won't pay what they think a Master's degree demands. I just want a decent job and maybe some benefits!
No one should have to struggle in order to better ourselves as well as our community. Having such a heavy burden to carry while trying to maintain a good life for our family is a huge stress that I think our country should try and alleviate. Help those that are trying to help themselves by becoming assets to this country and not victims of circumstance.
Paying back 14 loans totaling $100,000 on $10 an hour at 9-22% interest and 27 hours per week equals what?

I know this would be a good idea for alot of people me personally am a single mom who is currently unemployed and I never finished my education so I have this looming over my head. And I always worry how I will be able to pay it off wishing I would never applied for them

Want me to spend money and stimulate the economy? Give me the freedom to-forgive my student loans! I'll gladly spend my meager teacher salary providing for my family through home ownership, a new car, travel and more. As it stands now, I won't be able to afford any of that due solely to student loan debt! 
Student Loan forgiveness is essential in this economy that seldom yields jobs that correlate to the high costs of educational training.

Education is too expensive and the jobs out there don't pay enough to live and pay off student loans. Students go to school to get a good job to pay the loan back. No extra income to have a life and family.

Please, please get this passed. I'm not going to be able to live on social security and pay off the Parent Plus loans we made. I hate for my daughter to have this hanging over her future.
It's about time! Education is meant for all in any civilized society to help achieve a better standard of living through it's acquisition. 
This is killing the "middle class" American!!! You expect a better life for your child. Well... that is never going to happen if...1) they CAN`T get a job & if they do it is @ Walmart, or food service,2) they can only get a job at $13.00 an they cant pay rent,utilities, and their school loan!!! 3) they dump all their loans on parents, that co-signed loans for them, never expecting for this to really happen and becomes a HUGE FINANCIAL BURDEN!!! IF THE GOV. CAN BAIL OUT THE BANKS & CAR CO.`S WHY NOT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY STRUGGLING??? !!!

I know this would be a good idea for alot of people me personally am a single mom who is currently unemployed and I never finished my education so I have this looming over my head. And I always worry how I will be able to pay it off wishing I would never applied for them

support the Support the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012(H.R. 4170). My wife has a student loan and it is a burden for us to repay that loan.

As a college student, I have seen the detrimental and ridiculous amount of student loan debt that colleges will try to saddle on people, often deceptively. I'm in!

Fox Confirms Obama' 2% Whopper

This evening on FoxNews' Special Report Jim Angle confirmed what I had written in Obama's 2% Falsehood. Obama and his spokesmen are deliberately misleading the American public with the ludicrous claim that the US has only two percent of the worlds oil reserves.

The "proven reserve" number is calculated once drilling begins and is often updated several times as this article from the Williston, North Dakota Herald indicates.

Although we were pretty much already aware of it, Sen. John Hoeven confirmed our suspicions that the latest study by the U.S. Geological Survey of the Bakken and Three Forks formations, once completed, will reveal more recoverable oil than the 4 billion barrels currently estimated.

Oil companies have been saying the same thing for more than a year, and their ever-increasing success shows it.

Notice that the graphic below was produced by Obama's own Department of Energy along with the Rand Corporation.

Obama, DOJ Suffer Third 9-0 Supreme Court Loss

Court watcher predicted that the Idaho couple, Chantell and Mike Sackett, would prevail in their suit against the EPA before the Supreme Court but no one predicted another 9-0 drubbing. This is the third time this season the Court has unanimously sent the Obama DOJ to the showers. The EPA argued that allowing lawsuits challenging its compliance orders, which it views as a warning, would undermine its ability to deal quickly with water pollution under the Clean Water Act. But Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the court, rejected the government's argument, saying that the Clean Water Act was not "uniquely designed" to allow the EPA to strong-arm property owners into compliance.

Earlier this session the Court ruled 9-0 that the Lutheran Church not the EEOC should chose it ministers. In another case involving a Texas redistricting plan the Court rejected a lower court ruling favored by Eric Holder's racially biased Civil Rights Division sending it back to that lower court. Again the ruling was 9-0.

Hey, silver bullet, how'd Obama get all that drilling scheduled so fast?

  Here's a question.
  Over and over, Obama calls "flat earthers" out for their optimism and eagerness to drill for oil.
"That's no solution," he complains. It's no "silver bullet."
 Well, now.
  If there's no "silver bullet," to quickly resolve the oil "shortage" then how can Obama claim he set up all the drilling that's taking place right now? 
  I thought it took LONGER to set up drilling leases, like twenty years?
  Bush set this in motion and if Obama were honest, he'd move right along and quit contradicting himself.
"We've seen it all before; we know better. You know better," he told a crowd at Prince George's Community College in Maryland. "There is no such thing as a quick fix when it comes to high gas prices. There's no silver bullet. Anybody who tells you otherwise isn't really looking for a solution — they're trying to ride the political wave of the moment."


Dem thinks Germans bombed Pearl Harbor

Obama is a Fraud

The old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words has never been more true.'d be happier if Tebow had been aborted?

  Apparently in New York City, you're not allowed to be a conservative, a Christian or even pro-life.
  NewsBusters reports on an MSNBC kerfuffle....but it's always at MSNBC these days, right...where a left wing writer is angry Tim Tebow has been traded to New York, apparently because Tebow, being alive, did a pro-life ad years ago that the leftie writer didn't like and he doesn't want Tebow, being a good guy, to have any influence on the stink of New York.
  So, I guess, the leftie writer would have preferred Tebow not exist.
ZIRIN: Exactly, because of who Tim Tebow is. I mean, it would be a circus if you let Rick Santorum loose in Las Vegas for a week and just kept a camera on him the whole time. I mean, Donald Trump in New York is ho-hum. He's practically a chameleon in New York. But with Tim Tebow you are talking about somebody who has a set of ideas, let's just say, that are different from the majority of New Yorkers. Now, I don't want to shock you, Tamron, but there are a lot of women in New York who use birth control. And I also don't want to shock you, but there are a lot of LGBT people that live in New York City who are also football fans and they might want to know why the new, possibly, starting quarterback for the New York Jets wants them to move backwards 30 or 40 years.
  "Moving backwards" is disagreeing with the pro-death mentality of the childless, botoxed, primped elite of New York who basically endorse the new communism.
  As my father would have said.

This White House does what it wants

  The Malia Obama Spring Break fling to Mexico along with 12 of her friends and several teachers kerfuffle has exploded around the web, despite the White House's efforts to squelch it. 
  What was the purpose of squelching this story, as the White House has now admitted it did? First they called it non-news, until the earthquake hit Mexico and everyone wondered about Malia's safety, which apparently automatically made it "news," as "news" is determined by the "government." 
  (Malia's mother was too busy to go with her because she had an appearance on the David Letterman show, where Obama's Republican opponents would be mocked heartily.)
  The best synopsis of this kerfuffle/explosion is written by Claudia Rosett over at PJ Media. It's excellent, insightful and jarring.
 The problems Rosett sets forward are these 1) the whole 1% hypocrisy thing 2) White House control of the media  3)  cost  4)  risk  5) State Dept warning 
  And last she draws this conclusion:
One need not quarrel over whether the White House, or anyone in it, is entitled to organize holiday trips to just about anywhere on the planet. But being entitled to do something does not necessarily mean it’s a good idea to do it. Where’s the sense of responsibility to those who serve? Where’s the judgment?
  This is an excellent read and well worth your time. It synopsizes perfectly the problems this White House presents to the American public.
  This is no small story; it represents the disease that possesses the people running the country. It's all about them and no one else.
  And if they want to go on vacation someplace dangerous, it'll be the Secret Service's job to lay down their lives for them in the event of an attack.
  If they want to drive and fly gas guzzlers non stop around the country, it's their business and you'd just better pay up. You'd also better curtail your own travel in the name of "sacrifice."
  If they want to mouth platitudes about how much they care about the "middle class" and the "99%," then dammit, you'd better not question their numbers or their promises.
  If they want to send their kids to a phenomenally expensive school, while cutting the funding for impoverished inner city students to that same school, you'd better not ask why. You'd better just believe them when they say they support education and inner city students, regardless their policies.
  Background here and here.
