On Palm Sunday 2014 and the eve of the beginning of Passover,  a gunman opened fire outside the Jewish Community Center and a senior living facility in Overland Park Kansas, killing three people. Two of the victims  have been named – Dr. William Lewis Corporan, and his 14 year old nephew, Reat Griffin Underwood, both Christians, were there to audition for a show that was being held at the center’s theater.

Heartbreaking….there’s more at the Daily Mail. He was a Boy Scout with adorable dimples who loved to sing.

 Reat’s mother awed the standing room only vigil crowd that gathered at St Thomas the Apostle, Sunday night, with her words of faith. 

You can hear an audible gasp when she tells the crowd who she is – and then later – sobbing.

Authorities have not yet released the name of a woman who was killed minutes later in an attack at a Jewish retirement community a few blocks away.

The Kansas City Star reported:

People gathered to mourn the victims of the shooting at the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom during a vigil Sunday night at St. Thomas The Apostle Episcopal Church in Overland Park. Many of those in attendance were students from Blue Valley High School where Reat Underwood, one of the victims, was a student.

Police arrested Frazier Glenn Cross, a 73-year-old southwest Missouri man with a long history of anti-Semitic and racist statements, Sunday afternoon. He was booked into the Johnson County jail at 8:48 p.m. on suspicion of premediated first-degree murder but was not immediately charged.

Cross smiled and made an anti-Semitic statement when he was arrested outside Valley Park Elementary near the Jewish Community Center.

Police said the shooter used a shotgun in the slayings at the Jewish Community Center. He also had a handgun when he was arrested.

“We are investigating it as a hate crime,” said Overland Park Police Chief, but investigators are not sure of the motive.

Public records show that Cross, who lives in Aurora, Mo., a small town in Lawrence County, southwest of Springfield also uses the name Frazier Glenn Miller.

It is very safe to assume the “hate crime” angle given Miller’s White Supremacist background and the fact that he (according to witnesses) yelled, “heil Hitler” as he was being arrested. His website is http://www.whty.org/

Frazier Glenn Miller is the founder of the White patriot’s Party which was formerly the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and relocated to Aurora, MO in 2002 where he published racist newsletters.. He ran into trouble with the law in the ’80’s for threatening war against blacks, Jews, gays and the Federal government.

The former leader of the White Patriot Party, F. Glenn Miller Jr., was captured along with three other men, identified as Tony Wydra, Robert (Jack) Jackson and Douglas Sheets, said an agent of the Federal Bureau Investigation, Bob Davenport, and a United States Marshal, Lee Koury. 

Mr. Miller, 46 years old, was convicted in North Carolina last year of operating a paramilitary training camp and was freed on bond pending appeal. He was charged in a warrant last week with violating the conditions of his bond and was wanted as a fugitive. 

Last week the United States Attorney in Raleigh, N.C., Sam Currin, said that Mr. Miller had mailed 5,000 letters attacking Jews, blacks, homosexuals, Government officials and ”white race traitors.”


In 1984, Miller ran for Governor of NC as a Democrat, garnering 0% of the vote. In 1986, he ran for the US Senate in NC as a Republican, garnering 0% of the votes. Reportedly, when he ran for US Congress in 2006, both parties refused to accept his filing fee check – so he ran as an Independent in a write – in campaign.. He tried another write in campaign in 2010 for US Senate, again as an Independent.

Miller’s political ads were so outrageously racist, radio stations petitioned the FCC for an exemption from being required to air them.

…the FCC’s Media Bureau responded with informal, oral advice that “on the facts and pleadings submitted by all parties, including Mr. Miller, it would not be unreasonable for Missouri broadcasting stations to determine that Miller is not a bona fide write-in candidate and therefore, Missouri broadcasters may deny him access to their stations.”

Here’s one of his ads.

 

Law enforcement officials say they have no evidence that the Sunday’s shooting at the Jewish center is related to the KC area highway shootings – but it’s something I imagine they are looking into.

 

 

Cruz: “Those Who Lionize Convicted Cop Killers are Not Suitable for Major Leadership Roles at the DOJ” (Video)

Tomorrow, Obama’s race-baiting pick to head the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Dept, will get his up or down confirmation vote in the Senate. Obama had to search long and hard to find someone even more radical than now Labor Sec Thomas Perez, but by Gosh – he did it with cop killer advocate,  Debo Adegbile.

The FBI Agents Association, National Fraternal Order of Police, Major County Sheriff’s Association, National Association of Police Organizations, National Sheriff’s Assoc, and the New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association have all come out in public opposition to the nomination of Adegbile. But most Democrats will vote in lock step to confirm him tomorrow because that’s how Democrats roll. Vulnerable Democrats running for reelection in red states may think twice, however. Not because it would be the right thing to do, but to save their own hides.

Paul Mirengoff of Powerline reports:

Unless half a dozen or so Democrats vote no, the race hustler will be confirmed.

Pennsylvania Democrat Bob Casey has said he will vote no. Philadelphia, of course, was the scene of Mumia’s crime and of the disgraceful “free Mumia” movement. It is telling, therefore, that Pennsylvania’s Democratic Senator can’t swallow Adegbile’s confirmation.

Will other Democrats join Casey? Not unless, like Casey, they perceive that doing so will enhance their electoral prospects. Time and time again we’ve seen that the Democratic Senate majority marches in lock-step except where the electoral imperative dictates otherwise. Conscience and considerations of basic decency are never factors.

Fortunately, as Roll Call observes, “several Democrats up for re-election in swing or conservative states might think twice about wading into the hornets’ nest that surrounds Abu-Jamal.” Roll Call cites Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Begich of Alaska, Mark Warner of Virginia, and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire. Perhaps Mark Udall of Colorado should also be included, especially now

that he is likely to face strong opposition in November.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, registered his opposition to the nomination on the Senate floor today while honoring the brave service of America’s fallen police officers.

 “It is out of respect for our nation’s police officers that I rise to oppose the nomination of Debo Adegbile to be the head of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division,” Sen. Cruz said. “We must remember our nation’s fallen police officers who have bravely given their lives to serve our nation and to protect us. They form the backbone of our country that supports the rule of law and they risk their lives every day to keep law-abiding Americans safe.”

In his remarks, the Senator noted that although every criminal defendant is entitled to an attorney, Adegbile’s representation of Mumia Abu-Jamal, a man convicted of murdering Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981, was pure political advocacy. Abu-Jamal’s guilt was not in doubt – four eyewitnesses saw the shooting and Abu-Jamal confessed and stated in front of three witnesses that he hoped that Officer Faulkner died. And although Abu-Jamal already had a team of high-priced volunteer lawyers that had filed dozens of petitions and appeals, Adegbile and his team joined the case in 2009, 27 years after Faulkner’s death, and then began politicizing it. Under Adegbile’s supervision, rallies, protests, and media campaigns instead dishonestly portrayed Abu-Jamal as a political prisoner and victim of racial injustice.

“This is not a matter of left wing or right wing politics,” Sen. Cruz continued. “We all should agree that violent criminals should be punished. We should all agree that those who advocate for, celebrate, lionize convicted cop killers are not suitable for major leadership roles at the United States Department of Justice. I urge every member of this body to oppose this nomination.”

In addition to his voluntary defense of a convicted cop-killer, Adegbile has a record of opposing common-sense voter ID laws, attacking religious liberties, advocating federal interference in religious institutions, and opposing Americans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

I agree with Paul Mirengoff that with Dingy’s blessing, some of the vulnerable Dems will join Casey in opposition, leaving Reid with just enough votes to confirm Obama’s race-baiting selection to head the Civil Rights Division.”

In any event, we encourage constituents of Democratic Senators, especially the endangered ones, to make their views known. Here are some of the relevant phone numbers:

Obama About to Plunge Us into Another War w/o Congressional Approval, UN Approval, or Consent of the American People

Obama is considering a face-saving strike on Syria without the authorization of Congress, UN approval, or the consent of the American people.

Via Red State:

The plans being floated by President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry for a wildly unpopular military intervention in Syria are incoherent on any number of levels. Rather than identify an enemy and seek the enemy’s defeat, the essential requirement for using military force, the Administration is unwilling to declare the toppling of the Assad regime as a goal – despite Obama’s own proclamation two years ago this month that “[f]or the sake of the Syrian people, the time has come for President Assad to step aside.” Instead, according to one unnamed “U.S. official” quoted by the LA Times, the Administration wants a military strike “just muscular enough not to get mocked.” Churchillian, this is not.

116 Members of Congress signed a letter to Obama warning him about striking Syria without their consent.

 House lawmakers from both sides of the aisle sent a letter to President Barack Obama Wednesday asserting that striking Syria without prior Congressional authorization would be unconstitutional.

As we reported Tuesday, the letter penned by Rep. Scott Rigell, R-Va., pushes the president to “receive authorization from Congress before ordering the use of U.S. military force in Syria.”

While the letter lacks signatures from top leaders — Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, wrote his own letter to Obama Wednesday afternoon — it now has 98 Republican and 18 Democratic supporters.

The letter was sent to the president after 5 p.m. on Wednesday. Among the Republicans on the letter are Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul of Texas, House Republican Policy Committee Chairman James Lankford of Oklahoma and some close Boehner allies, including Tom Latham of Iowa, Mike Simpson of Idaho, Tom Cole of Oklahoma, and Tom Price of Georgia.

Democrats include Rep. Peter A. DeFazio of Oregon, the ranking member of the House Natural Resources Committee, and Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota, the ranking member of the House Agriculture Committee.

A GOP Congressman is telling Boehner: Call House Back Now to Deal With Syria

Rep. Scott Rigell (R.-Va.)–who served six years in the Marine Corps Reserves, sits on the House Armed Services Committee, and represents the congressional district with the largest concentration of military personnel of any in the nation–said today he is calling on House Speaker John Boehner to call the House back into session to prevent President Barack Obama from usurping Congress’s constitutional authority to authorize—or not authorize—the use of military force in Syria.

“He should be calling the House back right now,” Rigell said of Boehner. “I will be clear on this.”

“I do have a call scheduled with one of our senior leaders this afternoon and I will be making that case,” said Rigell. “I think we’re at this point, and I regret that we’re at this point. But that is where we are.”

He would be acting without the UN’s approval:

The State Department made clear Wednesday that the Obama administration plans to bypass the United Nations Security Council as it prepares for a possible strike on Syria, after having failed to win support from Russia.

In blunt terms, department spokeswoman Marie Harf said last-ditch efforts to win support for an anti-Assad resolution at the U.N. were unsuccessful, and the U.S. would proceed anyway.

“We see no avenue forward given continued Russian opposition to any meaningful council action on Syria,” she said. “Therefore, the United States will continue its consultations and will take appropriate actions to respond in the days ahead.”

And without the consent of the American people:

Americans strongly oppose U.S. intervention in Syria’s civil war and believe Washington should stay out of the conflict even if reports that Syria’s government used deadly chemicals to attack civilians are confirmed, a Reuters/Ipsos poll says.

About 60 percent of Americans surveyed said the United States should not intervene in Syria’s civil war, while just 9 percent thought President Barack Obama should act.

Obviously aware of how unpopular the move is with the American people, President “Daddy Issues”, is avoiding talking to us about it.

With military action against Syria set to begin within hours, according to reports, President Barack Obama and his administration are determining what legal route to take in order to justify the attack. According to NBC News White House reporter Chuck Todd, the administration is leery of seeking Congressional support for a mission in Syria because Congress many decline to bless such an operation. Now, according to reports from POLITICO’s Glenn Thrush, Obama may seek to avoid the American people as well.

Thrush reported on Wednesday that, based on his conversations with aides to the president, Obama will not address the American people about the mission in Syria before hostilities commence. Thrush reports that Obama’s advisors believe addressing Americans from the gravity of the Oval Office or the East Room is “passé.” Furthermore, most Americans who care about the mission in Syria will learn the logic behind it from cable news.

All so he can save face over his stupid “red line” ultimatum which he gave in the heat of a presidential campaign to make himself look strong on foreign policy. We are about to align ourselves with al friggin’ Qaeda so Obama doesn’t look weak and ridiculous.  But he is weak and ridiculous, and the country already embarrassed itself when we reelected him – so who cares if the world laughs at us one more time at Obama’s expense?

Need I even need to mention how the Democrat media complex would be reacting if a Republican President were doing the same thing?

It’s OK When I Do It

The lesson of both Obama’s and Kerry’s history of criticism of the Iraq War (Kerry, you will recall, voted for the war after voting against the original Persian Gulf War on the theory that the first President Bush hadn’t assembled a large enough coalition) is that it was primarily driven by partisan opposition to George W. Bush, rather than any particular principled view of how to run American foreign policy. In that light, it is perhaps unsurprising that the arguments made against Bush have been discarded and forgotten, just as all but a tiny minority of the anti-war movement has been silent on Obama’s Libyan and Syrian adventures (and the internet chorus that branded Bush and Cheney as “chickenhawks” has been silent on Obama’s and Biden’s lack of military service). But being in charge requires more than just blind partisanship, and five years into his presidency, Obama seems lost in formulating an approach to the use of military force that makes any sort of coherent sense.

 

By the way, I’m not even convinced that it was the Syrian regime and not the rebels who used the chemical weapons.

Exhibit 1: Panetta, Sept. 28, 2012: WE LOST TRACK OF SYRIAN WMDS:

Today, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced that the US no longer had knowledge of the whereabouts of some Syrian chemical weapons, and admitted that those weapons may have been funneled to rebels or Iranian proxies. “There has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place,” said Panetta. “Where exactly that’s taken place, we don’t know.”

Panetta maintained that the most dangerous weapons were the ones still in possession of the Syrian government. But “with regards to the movement of some of this and whether or not they’ve been able to locate some of it, we just don’t know.”

Exhibit Two: Evidence: Syrian Rebels used Chemical Weapons (not Assad)

…even before Assad’s forces gained the momentum, a UN official reportedly found evidence of rebels using chemical weapons but no evidence Assad’s regime did. This, from a Washington Times article by Shaun Waterman dated May 6, 2013:

Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed. {emphasis ours}

Today, while the rebels are more desperate than they were at the time of that article, evidence of rebels using chemical weapons is available; evidence Assad’s regime has used them is not.

Waterman wrote…

Rebel Free Syrian Army spokesman Louay Almokdad denied that rebels had use chemical weapons.

That doesn’t square with a video uploaded on August 23, 2013, in which Free Syrian operatives threatened to launch chemical weapons:

Exhibit Three: John Brennan, the CIA, and Chemical weapons Propaganda:

It’s important to consider where this information is coming from – the CIA. This past February, in an article written by Steven Emerson that appeared on the Fox News website, the terrorism expert wrote about why John Brennan was the wrong man for the job of directing the intelligence agency:

Brennan’s White House tenure shows a disturbing tendency to engage with Islamist groups which often are hostile to American anti-terrorism policies at home and abroad. Those meetings confer legitimacy upon the groups as representatives of all Muslim Americans, despite research indicating that the community is far too diverse to have any one group represent its concerns.

A Feb. 13, 2010 speech Brennan gave at the New York University School of Law serves as an example.

It was organized by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group founded by Muslim Brotherhood members in the United States, some of whom remain active with the organization. And, although it denied any Brotherhood connection in 2007, exhibits in evidence in a Hamas-support trial show ISNA’s “intimate relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood.” {emphasis ours}

Exhibit Four: (The most solid evidence as far as I’m concerned…) Jay Carney says it’s “preposterous to suggest anyone but Assad Regime used the chemical weapons:

I’m not aware of any doubt,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters in response if there was a question if the Assad regime used chemical weapons last week in a heinous attack on Syrian civilians. “Suggestions that there is any doubt about who is responsible about this are as preposterous as suggestions that the attack itself didn’t occur,” Carney said.

That proves it.. The Assad Regime didn’t do the chemical weapons attack because as we know, every day is opposite day with Jay Carney.

Give me one reason why I should believe a single thing that comes out of that man’s mouth.

John Bolton slams Obama – President needs a character transplant to work effectively on Syria:

Col. Ralph Peters On Syria: Let  Our Enemies Kill Each Other!: 

 

The Regime Has a Stranglehold on the Republic and it’s not Letting Go

Jay Carney took not a single question at his press briefing, Monday, pertaining to CNN’s blockbuster story about CIA intimidation of Benghazi witnesses. Not a single question. Not even the CNN reporter questioned him about it.

Apparently, reporters are fearful that pushing the story will cost them White House access: Perhaps the White House has issued its own Stream of Threatening Chatter.

Some CNN reporters are reportedly fearful now that their access to the White House will be hampered following their probing into a story that members of the Obama administration would prefer remain uninvestigated.“Access is a very serious consideration when it comes to stories that could adversely impact a show, correspondent, or network’s relationship with the administration, a campaign, or any political leader,” one source with insider information told Mediaite.

Nobody considers suppressing stories by denying access a scandal in and of itself?

The stench of this corrupt Regime, its willing allies in the media, and the AWOL Republicans has  becoming suffocating.

I mean look at this – a few days ago, the indispensable  Keith Koffler tallied the number of real Obama scandals plaguing the country to 24 and counting.

President Obama claims that Republicans are busy probing “phony scandals.” But the sheer number of scandals suggests that misbehavior, abuse of power, and possibly corruption are not something being dreamed up by the GOP, but a defining characteristic of the Obama administration.

The number has grown since then. Now we have Obama Wastes Hundreds of Millions on “Worker Training” and Obama’s Utterly Corrupt, unilateral Rewriting of ObamaCare to benefit Congressmen and their staffers.

This guy just keeps ignoring the law and the Constitution, and apparently nobody seems to care.

It’s getting to the point where a massive act of civil disobedience seems to be our only remedy. We can’t use the courts because we will be denied standing. We can’t petition Congress because they are the ones benefiting from this. What choice do we have, other than to say: if you won’t obey the law, why should we?

Of course, the reason is: if we don’t obey the law, they will point guns at us and make us go to jail. If they don’t obey the law, they’ll just rewrite it so the law says what they want it to say.

Oh, and fresh off the presses: Exclusive: U.S. directs agents to cover up program used to investigate Americans:

A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin – not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.

When does it end?

Obama could publicly declare himself Dictator for life and the Republicans would do nothing more than give some impassioned speeches and then maybe hold him in Contempt of Congress, and that would be it, because any response stronger than that could get them branded as racists and we can’t have that. . And then in two years they’ll try to retake the Senate by running as the anti-Dictatorship party, but they’ll lose because we’ll be living under a friggin’ dictatorship and the elections will be rigged.

People are alarmed and getting desperate. The scandals are horrifying and Washington doesn’t seem to be listening.

Tomorrow, during rush hour traffic, conservative activists from all across the nation will be manning overpasses with Impeach Obama banners. See the Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment facebook page for details.

It’s a cry for help.

Tea Party Nation goes there, Is Obama ‘Wagging the Dog?’

Is Barack Obama using the diversionary tactic known as Wag the Dog in order to justify his massively unconstitutional spying on ALL American citizens?  Are the closing of 21 foreign embassies in 17 countries because of real threats, or are they contrived by a corrupt regime in order to communicate the message, “See, we’ve uncovered all these terrorist attacks with NSA spying programs that we wouldn’t have otherwise known about. You don’t want to blow up do you? Don’t you want to be safe? If we stop spying on you, then terrorist attacks like the ones that were going to happen at foreign embassies would be left unchecked.” 

Am I accusing Obama of wagging the dog in regards to closing the Mid-east embassies? Am I saying that the threats aren’t real? Am I saying that the President of the United States would purposely lie about a terrorist attack (or in this case, a proposed one) for strictly political purposes?  I’m simply posing a question.

Oh that’s just wingnut crazy talk….

Yeah, you know what was crazy? Funneling guns to drug cartels in Mexico and blaming it on one ATF office in Phoenix.

You know what else was crazy? Blaming the Benghazi attack on a YouTube video.

You know what else was crazy? Blaming the IRS targeting on one IRS office in Cincinnati.

You know what else is crazy? Believing anything this Regime puts out at face value.

We’ve reached critical mass. The Regime has 0 credibility with Americans who pay attention. People don’t trust their government and don’t know what to believe.

Why is Obama Sending Tanks and F-16s to Muslim Brotherhood-Led Egypt? (Video)

In a video taken September 23, 2010, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said, “no reasonable person can expect any progress on this track. Either [you accept] the Zionists and everything they want, or else it is war. This is what these occupiers of the land of Palestine know – these blood-suckers, who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs.”

Morsi also promoted “all forms of resistance” against Israel, calling for military resistance against the “criminal Zionists” along with supporting “resistance fighters,” i.e. terrorists who attack Israeli civilians. He called on Muslims and Arabs all over the world to “support” such fighters, but did not specify what such support entails. He called on “Zionists” to be “driven out of our countries.” He stated that he does not recognize the “Green Line.” Morsi also called for boycotts against Israel and all countries that support it, including the United States.

Egypt and the United States held a joint ceremony  in Cairo, Sunday,  to mark the delivery of new F-16 aircraft to the Egyptian Air Force…

Why in God’s name are we arming our enemy?

“Today’s ceremony demonstrates the firm belief of the United States that a strong Egypt is in the interest of the U.S., the region, and the world,” said U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne W. Patterson. “We look to Egypt to continue to serve as a force for peace, security, and leadership as the Middle East proceeds with its challenging yet essential journey toward democracy.”

The U.S. delivery of four aircraft is part of a group of 20 F-16s that will arrive in Egypt over the course of the year. To date, the U.S. has delivered 224 F-16 aircraft to Egypt.

“Our thirty-four year security partnership is based upon shared interests and mutual respect,” said Ambassador Patterson. “The United States has long recognized Egypt as an indispensible partner.”

The F-16s are part of the $1.3 billion in the Foreign Military Financing (FMF) program from the U.S. in annual military and security assistance to improve Egypt’s defensive capabilities and support Egypt’s contributions to regional security that counter terrorist threats.

That explanation expired after the “Arab Spring” of 2011. It’s no longer operable in a Muslim Brotherhood led Egypt. What in the world is the Regime thinking?

In an appearance on Fox and Friends,  an exasperated Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said the decision to supply Morsi with the aircraft and tanks is consistent with what we recently found out is this administration’s foreign policy: “What difference does it make?! What difference does it make if we give weapons to our sworn enemies who want to wipe Israel and us off the map – so we give them the method to wipe them out – what’s the big deal?”

He continued, “we’re putting ourselves in danger when we’re sending jets and tanks to a leader whose only two enemies he’s said in the past are Israel and the United States.”

“This is going to help give Egypt an edge over Israel – they’ll have more M-16s than Israel, as I understand it.”

A Coptic Christian who called into the Sean Hannity Show, Monday, said that Sending F-16s and tanks to Morsi is like sending them to Osama bin Laden.

We’re also giving Egypt four Fast Missile Craft ships which cost the American people 2 billion dollars.

The first of four new fast missile craft for Egypt was dedicated Oct. 25 at a shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss., and the ship’s name was announced.

The S. Ezzat is named after Soliman Ezzat, the admiral who founded and led the modern Egyptian Navy from 1953 to 1967, shipbuilder VT Halter Marine said in a press release.

Construction of the ship began in a newly built fabrication facility at VT Halter in November 2009 under a U.S. Navy Foreign Military Sales program managed by the U.S. Navy’s Naval Sea Systems Command.

The original contract for the program was awarded to VT Halter in November 2005. Since then, the U.S. has awarded the shipbuilder more than $800 million for the ships.

Mark Levin exploded on his talk show, a few days ago: “What the hell is this President doing sending F-16s to the regime in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood?!” he thundered.

“[They] ask questions about the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration of our own government, and they’re treated like pariahs,” an agitated Levin shouted. “Well, the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated our government — it’s called Barack Obama! No, he’s not a formal member; he’s a sympathizer. There, I said it! Prove otherwise.”

In August of 2011, I reported that the Muslim Brotherhood Has Infiltrated White House.

Why would the President nominate someone like Chuck Hagel, as Levin noted, a sympathizer with the most radical elements in the Middle East, and an Israel hater? Obviously, the President and Hagel are simpatico on foreign policy. The real question is will Senate Republicans wave him through? Although Mitch McConnell raised the possibility of a Senate filibuster, Monday, it’s looks to me like Senate Republicans have no stomach for a fight on this.

None of this is going to end well.

AhramOnline reported: NSF blames President Morsi for Tahrir sexual assaults, police violence:

The opposition National Salvation Front (NSF) has condemned a recent spate of violent attacks on peaceful protesters.

 In a statement on Sunday, the front claimed organised violence, including sexual attacks using knives on female protesters, was designed to prevent people expressing their views.

President Mohamed Morsi, his government and the interior minister are responsible for the violence and torture, the front said. They have failed to protect peaceful protesters from attacks by militias and thugs, such as those carried out against women in Tahrir Square.

“These organised mob sexual assaults cannot be separated from the oppressive tactics [of the security forces] and the use of torture and intimidation against revolutionaries,” read the statement.

Such tactics would not stop women from participating in Egypt’s political life, it added.

Dozens of mob sexual assaults have taken place around Tahrir Square during recent protests. Many argue the attacks are systematic and organised.

Ugh: Todd Akin Asks For Forgiveness in New Ad (Video) UPDATE: The End is Near?

It’s a weak, “I am not a witch  –  I misspoke – please forgive me ad. As Gateway Pundit quipped; “when your campaign reaches the point where you are forced to remind voters that you oppose rape, you know you have reached rock bottom.”

He misunderstands. The faux outrage is on the left. It’s mortification on the right. Mortification that a guy who believes women can self-terminate pregnancies, when raped, is jeopardizing our takeover of the Senate. The anger on the right for him is if he stays. He still has time to drop out. He still has time to put the country above his political aspirations. Then there will be forgiveness.

Gotta agree with Drew M, here:

I think this infatuation some people have with defending politicians to the end is silly and not a healthy small ‘r’ republican value. These guys are chess pieces to me. If you have to sacrifice one or more to win the game then do it and win. The game here is control of the Senate (repealing ObamaCare, confirming judges, etc.) not vindicating some guy most of us couldn’t pick out of a lineup. This is about beating the Democrats at the ballot box, not shoving it to the “establishment” or the media.

We’re not Democrats- we don’t “circle the wagons” when one of ours screws up this badly. We can’t have any weak links – this is war against a ruthless, Alinsky-trained, progressive left that will exploit any weakness that we have on our side to the nth degree, and their allies in the media will help. In a year that Democrats are trying turn into a Republican “war on women”  — we can’t have a weak link like Todd Akin.

For the country, Todd Akin – be a patriot and withdraw from the race.

Update:

Via David Harsanyi,  Human Events:

Reportedly, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan called Akin, presumably asking him to leave the race.

Jim Geraghty: PPP’s Sample in Missouri Suddenly Becomes More Heavily GOP

This morning, Public Policy Polling races to tell us that “Missouri voters strongly disagree with the comments Todd Akin made about abortion over the weekend, but it hasn’t moved the numbers a whole lot in the Senate race. Akin leads Claire McCaskill by a single point, 44-43. That’s basically identical to our last poll of the contest in late May, which found Akin ahead by a 45-44 spread.”

Hit the link to find out how heavily weighted toward Republicans the poll was to get that result.

Video: Rep Andre Carson Thinks American Schools Should Be Modeled after Madrassas

In a speech at the ICNA-MAS convention, last May,  Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) actually told those in attendance that America’s schools should be modeled after madrassas (Islamic schools).

Walid Shoebat notes:

Incidentally, the ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) was identified in a 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document as one of 29 ‘like minded’ organizations. The goal of these organizations? According to the document itself:

“…their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”

MAS (Muslim American Society) was formed in 1992, one year after the date of the document, which might explain why they weren’t one of the 29. Bolstering that case further is the fact that MAS has identified two groups who are on the list of the notorious 29 – Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and Muslim Students Association (MSA) as being like-minded.

Wonderful…the comments come 6:00 minutes in:

Not just no, but HELL NO to that.

Back in 2008, Michelle Malkin reported on the disturbing influence sharia was already having in our nation’s schools:

Sharia in the schools: Monitoring the American madrassa:

Katharine Kersten’s excellent investigative work on the Minnesota taxpayer-funded Islamic school, TIZA, has led to a state probe of the institution. It has also shed light again on the spread of sharia in U.S. secondary public schools.

You’ll remember the heated battle in San Diego over Muslim prayers in a public charter school.

You may recall the jihadi crossword puzzle discovered by parents in Johnston County, NC.

In Contra Costa (CA) County, school officials allowed Islam indoctrination lessons that subjected public school students to prayer recitation sessions and Muslim re-naming.

The Congressman from Indiana would like to see more of these outrages.

The name Andre Carson should ring a bell to tea party conservatives because he has repeatedly engaged in spurious and inflammatory attacks against the tea party.

At a town hall in Miami on August 22, 2011, during the August recess in which members of the Congressional Black Caucus traveled to five cities in what amounted to a “Spread Racial Division Tour”, Carson accused Tea Party-friendly members of Congress of wanting to bring back Jim Crow and went so far to accuse his colleagues of wanting to bring back lynching: Some of themwould love to see you and mehanging on a tree.”

And, as Big Journalism’s Larry O’Conner noted, Andre Carson is also the man who told the mother of all race-baiting lies against the Tea Party:
That racial slurs were screamed “fifteen times”at he and Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) in Washington DC on the day before the ObamaCare vote in 2010.The headlines at the time (as well as Topic #1 on cable news and Sunday talk shows) was “Racist Tea Party Yells ‘N-Word’ at Civil Rights Icon John Lewis”. Andre Carson’s name was hardly mentioned in any of the stories. But a Big Government investigation revealed that it was he, in fact, who gathered Capitol Hill reporters around himself on March 20, 2010 and breathlessly told them what had happened “outside of Cannon (Congressional Office Building)” just moments before. (audio courtesy Kerry Pickett, Washington Times)
By now you know the story become part of Democratic Party lore showing up in talking points as recently as just last week as Alan Colmes mangled the “facts” but still was able to perpetuate the lie on Fox News’ “O’Reilly Factor”. You should also know by now that Andrew Breitbart offered a $100, 000 reward for anyone who can produce video proof o the supposed racial hatred. The only videos uncovered were found by the Big Government staff. They show the exact moment Carson described, “down the steps of Cannon”, from four different angles. Not only were there no slurs heard on any of the videos, but the scene is not at all how Carson described it to Capitol Hill reporters.
It’s almost like he lies about his enemies in order to defeat them. I wonder if there’s an Islamic word for that.

Cannibal Summer: 4 Blood Curdling Stories in One Week

Memorial Day was only a few days ago,  but if this current trend continues,  it’s going to be a long, hot and horrifically grisly summer. Lock your doors and hide the children – there are some new, horrible drugs out there, and they are making people do unspeakable things.

This first story, which happened last Saturday afternoon in broad daylight, is still giving me nightmares – -

Miami Police Shoot, Kill Man Eating Another Man’s Face:

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami police are still tight-lipped about the man they shot and killed on the MacArthur Causeway Saturday afternoon, but new details back claims they had no choice: the naked man they shot was trying to chew the face off another naked man, and refused to obey police orders to stop his grisly meal, which one source now claims included his victim’s nose and eyeballs.

Surveillance video taken from security cameras at the nearby Miami Herald building show a police officer arrive on the scene, appear to be startled by the spectacle of two naked men lying on the street, and draw his service weapon. It appears that the officer shot one of the men, but it was difficult to tell in the video.

The bizarre shooting happened shortly after 2 p.m., when police responded to a 911 call about two naked men fighting on a bike path along the Causeway, which was packed with traffic on a busy holiday weekend.

Pictures from the ghastly crime scene have emerged on the internet, but trust me, you don’t want to see them.

Miami police have not confirmed the details of what happened next, but sources close to the investigation told CBS4 News that officers found one man gnawing on the face of another, in what one police source called the most gruesome thing he’d ever seen.

Like I said – the stuff of nightmares.

This next one is more than a little disturbing, too:

Kitten-Killing Cannibal Porn Star Luka Magnotta Sought in Canada Body Parts Case – Snuff Video Uncovered …Update: Luka Has a Blog …Update: He Plans on Killing Again:

Porn star Luka Rocco Magnotta is being sought by Canadian authorities in connection with the Ottawa-Montreal body parts case.
The National Post reported:

A video which purportedly shows a suspect wanted in connection with the Ottawa-Montreal body parts case brutally killing and sexually assaulting a naked man appears on a Canadian-operated website.

Police are now studying the gruesome video which was believed to have been taken by the suspect, identified today by police as Luka Rocco Magnotta.

Magnotta is wanted in connection with the discovery of a man’s torso stuffed in a locked suitcase in Montreal — whose hand and foot were mailed to Ottawa.

A man by the same name as Magnotta – who is featured on a number of lurid Internet sites – is a low-budget gay porn star suspected of appearing in a number of kitten-killing videos.

A snuff video surfaced recently that showed a man being murdered with an icepick.

In a grisly twist to the case, a graphic and deeply disturbing video has emerged which is purported to show the murder and dismemberment. A Montreal police source confirmed cops are in possession of a video, which also includes cannibalism, but would not say if it is the same video.

The graphic video online shows a man being stabbed to death with an ice pick and then being cut into pieces. The video was shot inside an apartment that bears a close resemblance to the unit in west-end Montreal that’s at the centre of the homicide investigation.

Now this:

Maryland man admits eating victim’s heart, part of his brain, documents say

JOPPATOWNE, Md. — A Maryland man has admitted to eating another man’s heart and part of the man’s brain, according to police documents.

The Harford County Sheriff’s Office says 21-year-old Alexander Kinyua was arrested Wednesday, days after a man whom he lived with went missing. Police say they found body parts while searching the townhome on Terrapin Terrace in Joppatowne. Police also found body parts in a nearby trash container.

Kinyua is charged with first-degree murder and was ordered held on no bail.

This one doesn’t involve cannibalism, but believe me – it’s still pretty bad:

Man Threw His Intestines at Officers After Stabbing Himself

Seriously?

According to the Huffington Post and NBC,  43-year-old Wayne Carter allegedly barricaded himself in on Sunday, and when cornered by authorities, he stabbed himself multiple times before cutting out his entrails and throwing them at the police while also throwing bits of his flesh. Officers came to the scene when a witness called in to report that Carter was threatening to harm himself with his knife. When two officers kicked down Carter’s door and ordered him to put down the knife, Carter ignored them and began stabbing himself in the neck, legs and abdomen.

Man Threw His Intestines at Officers – The Incident

In an attempt to stop Carter from further harming himself, the officers tried to pepper spray him, however, it had no effect on him. Carter, who was responsive despite being disemboweled, retaliated and then started to throw bits of his skin and intestines at the officers. According to Lt. John Heinemann, to control the situation, the officers called for backup and called in the Bergen County SWAT team. Once the SWAT team was on the scene, they were able to subdue Carter and take him to the nearest hospital for emergency medical care.

Our sick culture is creating monsters.

Too many people  feel the need to fill the empty void within themselves with these dangerous chemicals instead of finding something spiritually wholesome to fulfill that need.

It’s a pity.

UPDATE:

American Livewire asks: What are bath salts, and are they actually inducing a Zombie Apocalypse?

The term Bath Salts describe the illegal designer street drugs that have been linked to violent delusions, and death. A 50 milligram packet usually sells for $25 to $50 reports say.

As of April, 34 of 50 states have banned bath salts, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

As most of you are aware, the cannibal man eating attack that occurred in Miami was induced after the consumption of the legal substance known as Bath salts.

This disturbing trend has sparked national attention, bringing to light the real dangers of this amphetamine like substance.  With the mass hysteria captivating the country, many are hinting towards an “unfathomable zombie apocalypse”.

Here’s what someone looks like when they’re on the drug:

This Friday: “Stand Up For Religious Freedom and Stop the HHS Mandate” – Rallies in Over 130 Cities

Image via Doug Ross

The HHS contraception mandate is a threat not only to the liberty of religious citizens, but to the liberty of all citizens, and at noon, this Friday,  thousands of Americans in more than 130 U.S. cities will make their displeasure known.

At the Stand Up For Religious Freedom – Stop the HHS Mandate rallies across the nation, the crowds will protest the recent contraceptives mandate and publicly voice their demand that the government protect religious liberty and stop forcing religious groups to cover drug-induced abortions.

 March 23 is the second anniversary of the passage of Obamacare. The Obama administration has claimed it’s willing to help insurance companies offset the cost of free birth control for women working for religious institutions such as hospitals and colleges. Under the plan, students and workers may obtain contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs from insurance companies without a copay.

It’s time to stand up and fight the evil. The more people know about the HHS mandate – the less they support it. But understand, every single day, Obama and his allies in the media go before the people with talking points designed  to fool low info types.

“We should all be horrified by this thing. When the American people hear about this, as they will on Friday, March 23, the rollback is going to start. The HHS mandate is going into the dustbin of history.

Let’s mobilize…

Below is a list of rallies that are open to the public on the 23rd, and info on two AFP rallies being held on the 27th:

Obama Poised to Betray America Through 4 UN Treaties (Video)

Could Obama really be on the verge of making our worst conspiracy theory nightmares about a “new world order” come true, under the radar, while most people are focused on the primaries?

Dick Morris is sounding the alarm about four uttely heinous UN treaties that are currently under consideration by the Obama administration that would surrender our sovereignty, cede power to go to war to the UN,  enact gun control, and tell us how to raise our children, if ratified by the Senate. These are treaties that the Bush administration and even Clinton administration would never have considered, but as the most radical  administration in American history enters it’s last year, all stars are in alignment for it to happen.

Here is some additional information about the treaties under consideration:

The International Criminal Court:

In a series of articles (see here, here, and here, The New American revealed the campaign for the ICC as a colossal bait and switch scam. While proponents were selling the ICC as the institution that would haul the Hitlers and Stalins of the world before the bar of justice, what they were actually building is a global judicial monster that violates all the major principles of separation of powers, checks and balances, and accountability.

In spite of their incessant prattling about dedication to  “transparency,” the globalists have been obdurately opaque about key features of the ICC, such as:

No right to a trial by a jury of one’s peers;
No right to habeas corpus;
No right to bail;
No right to a speedy trial;
No protection against indefinite pre-trial detention;
No protection against being transported to foreign lands

America’s top constitutional champions have rightly denounced the ICC. As we reported in 1998:

Dr. Charles Rice, professor of law at Notre Dame University, has termed the ICC “a monster,” both in concept and reality, noting that it effectively “repudiates the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence and cancels the 4th of July.” “In our system,” Professor Rice explains, “law is supposed to be a rule of reason which, in a sense, controls the state and compels the state to operate under the law.” But the superjurisdictional ICC, he points out, has no legitimate basis for its claimed authority, no protections against abuses, no accountability, and virtually no limits to its jurisdiction. “What are the limits on the ICC?” he asks, and then answers, “There are none. It’s insane!”

As news of this ICC criminal insanity became more widely known, the U.S. Congress was deluged with letters, e-mails, faxes, phone calls, and petitions opposing it. It was obvious that the Senate would not ratify the Rome Statute. The Clinton administration, which, only months previously had been so confident of ratification, did not even send the treaty to the Senate.

The Law of the Sea Treaty:

United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS)

  • Law of the Sea: UNCLOS—sometimes called the “Law of the Sea Treaty” (or LOST)—established a comprehensive legal regime for navigation and international management of oceanic resources, including the deep seabed.
  • President Reagan Refused to Sign: President Ronald Reagan announced that he would not sign UNCLOS shortly after it was adopted in 1982. Reagan stated several objections to it, most of which dealt with its provisions on deep seabed mining. Reagan did, however, support the navigational provisions of UNCLOS, which reflected the customary international law of the sea.

The U.S. Has Much to Lose …

  • Another Unaccountable International Bureaucracy: UNCLOS establishes the International Seabed Authority (ISA), a new U.N.-style bureaucracy located in Kingston, Jamaica. As only one of more than 160 countries in the ISA, the U.S. would have limited authority over its decisions regarding the deep seabed. Just like the U.N. General Assembly, proceedings at the ISA would be dominated by anti-U.S. interests.
  • Redistribution of U.S. Wealth to the “Developing World”: The U.S. currently enjoys full sovereignty over its entire continental shelf. It can claim all its mineral resources (e.g., oil and gas) and can collect royalty revenue from oil and gas companies for exploitation. If the U.S. joined UNCLOS, Article 82 would require the U.S. to transfer a significant portion of any such royalties to the ISA for “redistribution” to the so-called developing world, including corrupt and despotic regimes.
  • Mandatory Dispute Resolution: Under Part XV, the U.S. would be required to engage in mandatory dispute resolution for any claim brought against it by another member of UNCLOS. This may open the U.S. to any number of specious allegations brought by opportunistic nations, including allegations of environmental degradation or polluting the ocean environment with carbon emissions or even from land-based sources.
  • U.S. Economic Interests at Risk: UNCLOS claims the deep seabed resources of the oceans as “the common heritage of mankind” and forbids mining unless permission is first received by the ISA, which, of course, takes into account the interests of “developing states” regarding the exploitation of those resources. UNCLOS encourages technology transfers from advanced mining companies to support the mining activities by developing states, which is likely to discourage U.S. companies from participating in such activities.
  • The Convention Was Not “Fixed” in 1994: During the early 1990s the deep seabed mining provisions of UNCLOS were renegotiated in the “1994 Agreement.” This addendum to the convention was signed by the Clinton Administration in July 1994. While the 1994 Agreement improved many provisions of the convention, it did not secure “veto” power for the U.S. over the decisions of the ISA.

Small Arms Treaty:

While the terms have yet to be made public, if passed by the U.N. and ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:

  1. Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
  2. Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).
  3. Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).
  4. Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
  5. In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.

U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC):

The UNCRC is an international treaty focused on promoting the rights of children and seeking to give children priority in the implementation of governmental measures. The Convention claims to offer a road map that will guide government officials in the improvement of laws and policies, by defining which rights the government should give to children.

A VEILED THREAT

Since its introduction in 1989, the Convention has been ratified by every nation in the world except for the United States and Somalia. The CRC was signed by President Clinton in 1995, but early opposition in the Senate persuaded Clinton not to submit the treaty to the Senate for ratification.

The Senators who opposed the CRC in 1995 believed that the Convention marked a significant departure from the American concept of the relationship between state and child, and was incompatible with the right of parents to raise their children.

These concerns stem from the CRC’s repeated emphasis on two principles that should guide all decisions affecting children: consideration of the “best interests of the child” and the child’s “evolving capacities.” These two principles are the “umbrella principles underlining the exercise of all the rights in the Convention.”

The following sections explain why these two principles will, if implemented, jeopardize the vital role of parents within the American family.

WHAT IS REALLY “BEST FOR THE CHILD”?

The “Best Interests of the Child”

Article 3 of the CRC states that “in all actions concerning children, whether undertaken by public or private social welfare institutions, courts of law, administrative authorities or legislative bodies, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.” Thus, policies affecting children at all levels of society and government should have the child’s best interest as the primary concern.

The problem for families occurs when this principle surfaces as a guiding principle for parents. Article 18(1) of the CRC states that “Parents or, as the case may be, legal guardians, have the primary responsibility for the upbringing and development of the child. The best interests of the child will be their basic concern.”

A DEPARTURE FROM AMERICAN LAW

But the Convention’s emphasis on the “best interests” principle is a sharp break from American law. In the 1993 case of Reno v. Flores, the U.S. Supreme Court held that “the ‘best interests of the child’ is not the legal standard that governs parents’ or guardians’ exercise of their custody.”

In the 2000 case of Troxel v. Granville, the Court struck down a grandparent visitation statute because decisions about the child were made “solely on the judge’s determination of the child’s best interests,” without regard to the wishes of the parent.

The Court’s decisions in Reno and Troxel reflect a fundamental tenet of American family law, which recognizes that parents typically act in the best interests of their children. Indeed, “United States case law is replete with examples of parents fighting for the best interests of their children,” ranging from a child’s right to an education to the right of personal injury compensation.

Thus, except in cases where a parent has been proven to be “unfit,” American law presumes that the parent is acting in the best interests of the child, and defers to that parent’s decision.

The Convention, in contrast, supplants this traditional presumption in favor of parents with a new presumption in favor of the state.

People need to start raising a ruckus over this or as Dick Morris noted, the United States may not be able to survive another ten months of this regime.

Drudge Exclusive: NEWT’s EX-WIFE UNLOADS

Photo via Esquire.

This interview is allegedly causing a "civil war" at ABC over the timing of its airing. Drudge has the exclusive:

Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband's career with a single interview.

Earlier this week, she sat before ABCNEWS cameras, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours, and her explosive revelations are set to rock the trail.

But now a “civil war” has erupted inside of the network, an insider claims, on exactly when the confession will air!

MORE

ABCNEWS suits determined it would be “unethical” to run the Marianne Gingrich interview so close to the South Carolina Primary, a curious decision, one insider argued, since the network has aggressively been reporting on other candidates.

Dana Loesch speculates over at Big Journalism:

We all know that Newt Gingrich cheated on two of his three wives. He cheated on his wife Jackie, who had cancer, with Marianne Gingrich, the woman who gave an interview to ABC. If the details are simply that he was unkind to her or didn’t treat her right well, surprise! You were the mistress! You helped break up a marriage and thus forfeited your right to be outraged when the next mistress usurped your spot as the new wife. I have no pity for the “other woman.” I guess that’s why I find Marianne Gingrich’s late-to-the-game interview so odd. Could there be any bigger bombshell than they story of their union?

If there’s a civil war going on over at ABC News, it’s about when to air the story so that it does the maximum amount of damage to Newt, the guy who poses the greatest threat to Pharaoh Obama. Should they air it before the NC primary and let him go down in flames now, only to have a Santorum rise out of the ashes, or do they wait until later – perhaps until he wins the nomination, and then destroy him in the general. Or do they just leak rumors about it now, and see if they can put enough doubt in peoples’ minds for Mitt to win decisively in SC, but not enough for Newt to bow out, so the not Romneys continue the death march to Super Tuesday.

These things have to be done very delicately as the Wicked Witch of the West told Dorothy. There are many options before them. All of them helpful to the Master.

What this story does do is follow a familiar pattern of  a certain political camp using smears and/or old family secrets that are nobody’s business to torpedo opponents’ campaigns. I’m not saying anyone in Chicago had anything to do with encouraging Marianne to tell her story. She could have decided to do it on her own accord with no prompting whatsoever. I’m just saying that this follows a very definite pattern.

MORE:

Here’s what Marianne Gingrich told Esquire in August 2010:

But there was something strange and needy about him. “He was impressed easily by position, status, money,” she says. “He grew up poor and always wanted to be somebody, to make a difference, to prove himself, you know. He has to be historic to justify his life.”

She says she should have seen the red flags. “He asked me to marry him way too early. And he wasn’t divorced yet. I should have known there was a problem.”

Within weeks or months?

“Within weeks.”

That’s flattering.

She looks skeptical. “It’s not so much a compliment to me. It tells you a little bit about him.”

And he did the same thing to her eighteen years later, with Callista Bisek, the young congressional aide who became his third wife. “I know. I asked him. He’d already asked her to marry him before he asked me for a divorce. Before he even asked.”

He told you that?

“Yeah, he wanted to — “

But she stops. “Hey, turn off the tape recorder for a second. This is going to go places …”

Back in the 1990s, she told a reporter she could end her husband’s career with a single interview. She held her tongue all through the affair and the divorce and even through the annulment Gingrich requested from the Catholic Church two years later, trying to erase their shared past. Now she sits quietly for a moment, ignoring her eggs, trying to decide how far she wants to go.

—Yawwwwnnnn—

UPDATE:

Now Politico is reporting that the interview will air Thursday night, coinciding with the final debate before the South Carolina primary on Saturday.

I asked Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond about the interview, and he released a letter to ABC News execs from Gingrich’s daughters, Kathy Lubbers and Jackie Cushman, who have become his biggest surrogates in answering questions about their family. The letter is below:

The failure of a marriage is a terrible and emotional experience for everyone involved.  Anyone who has had that experience understands it is a personal tragedy filled with regrets, and sometimes differing memories of events.We will not say anything negative about our father’s ex-wife.  He has said before, privately and publicly, that he regrets any pain he may have caused in the past to people he loves.

ABC News or other campaigns may want to talk about the past, just days before an important primary election.  But Newt is going to talk to the people of South Carolina about the future– about job creation, lower taxes, and about who can defeat Barack Obama by providing the sharpest contrast to his damaging, extreme liberalism.  We are confident this is the conversation the people of South Carolina are interested in having.Our father is running for President because of his grandchildren – so they can inherit the America he loves.  To do that, President Obama must be defeated.  And as the only candidate in the race, including Obama, who has actually helped balance the national budget, create jobs, reform welfare, and cut taxes and spending, Newt felt compelled to run – to serve his country and safeguard his grandchildren’s future.

Greta Van Susteren weighs in:

 I have no idea what this ABC interview is other than the limited stuff I am reading on DrudgeReport at this hour.  I am flying blind in this posting and my opinion is only based on what little I know now.  

What I DO know is that we are only 2 days out from the South Carolina primary and there is a high risk from the Drudge Report description of an explosive interview of unfair poisoning of those going to the polls.  There simply is not enough time for a candidate to respond to the explosive report and fairness also includes fairness to the candidate.  

Jarrett and Holder Politicize MLK Day

I know. Not exactly a surprise, huh?

Valerie Jarrett and the current Pastor of MLK’s Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta should be very proud that their sermons brought to mind a black leader who has influenced many. Unfortunately, that leader wasn’t Martin Luther King.

We haven’t seen political propaganda this obnoxious, spoken from the pulpit, since Jeremiah Wright. It’s feeling like 2008 all over again.

The CBS Atlanta reporter said, at times, it sounded like a political rally. Disgusting:

On the Sunday before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett visited Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta to give a political speech, in support of her boss (Barack Obama) and congressional Democrats:

“Teachers, and firefighters, and policemen, whose jobs are now in jeopardy because Congress–well let me be specific–because the Republicans in Congress,” Jarrett told the crowd. According to the CBS affiliate in Atlanta, at this point, “Before she could finish her sentence, people in the congregation were laughing, and applauding.”

Video via Weasel Zippers:

Whenever you hear a racialist Democrat yapping about “the Southern strategy” your hair should stand on end. Republicans like Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, who spent their entire  political careers fighting Democrats to end racial discrimination were spitefully accused of  having a “Southern Strategy” because Democrats were witnessing their political domination in the South, end.  The reason the South flipped to Republican was not because Republicans with proud civil rights records were reaching out to racists. It was a reaction to how the Democrat endorsed 60’s hippy, drippy, (occupyish) “worst generation”  was polluting everything it touched.

In an  interview with Human Events’ Jason Mattera, Ann Coulter talked about this and more from the Civil Rights chapter of her outstanding book, Demonic, (which you really need to read, if you haven’t already.)

 Ann Coulter in  Demonic tackling the popular myth that Democrats are the party of civil rights.  It’s the exact opposite, she states, noting, “It was Republicans who overwhelmingly introduced, promoted and passed every civil rights act from the end of the Civil War right up to and including the 1964 Civil Rights Act.”

But as the fable goes, conservative hero Barry Goldwater opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act in order to appeal to racists in the South, and for that reason, the GOP started to lose the black vote.  The reality is that Goldwater didn’t have a racist bone in his body.  As Ann Coulter tells HUMAN EVENTS in our sit-down interview, Goldwater founded the NAACP chapter in Arizona, integrated the Arizona National Guard and ended racial segregation in his family-owned department stores.  In other words, Goldwater was a vociferous foe of race discrimination, and actively fought to abolish all the Jim Crow laws that Democrat politicians adopted.

So what gave rise to the “Southern Strategy” tale and how did it gain momentum? Take it away, Ms. Coulter:

Not to be outdone, Eric Holder also used MLK Day as a pretense to blast Republicans.

Specifically, Republican  backed voter ID laws:

(Politico) — Attorney General Eric Holder used Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy on the anniversary of the civil rights leader’s birthday Monday to emphasize the Obama administration’s dedication to protecting the American people from discriminatory voting practices.

“Despite our nation’s record of progress, and long tradition of extending voting rights – today, a growing number of citizens are worried about the same disparities, divisions, and problems that Dr. King fought throughout his life to address and overcome,” Holder said at an MLK Day event in Columbia, S.C.

Holder’s remarks in the Palmetto State come just weeks after the Justice Department blocked the state’s new voter ID law from taking effect, citing an unfair burden on minority voters.

What kind of mental gymnastics does it take to turn a simple ID requirement into “a discriminatory voting practice”?  Why isn’t the TSA racist for requiring a photo ID to get on a plane?

It seems racist to me to think that minorities are somehow not mentally competent enough to procure picture IDs, (even when provided free by the state!) in order to vote.

Of course, in Holder’s case, it’s not the “soft racism of low expectations” – it’s a blatant attempt to circumvent legitimate new laws in order to facilitate voter fraud.

What it obviously isn’t –  is a “civil rights” issue. If being made to show an ID in order to vote is a violation of our rights, than we are all victims. But I don’t have a problem showing ID to vote, nor do I have problem showing ID to get on a plane.

Now would be a good time to promote a new movie that seeks to correct decades of dishonest liberal spin on civil rights.

Pastor C.L. Bryant was once a “black radical, and member of the NAACP. Now, he’s a “Runaway Slave”.

Blog Critics reviewed his new movie, which debuted in theaters, Friday:

He points out that the Black community has 40 percent of its population on welfare, 72 percent of its children born out of wedlock and a 48 percent abortion rate, and asks “Is this what the black community has to show for its 95% support of the Democratic Party?”

But, filling in the blanks and shattering myths is what this film is all about.

He also fills in some of the history of the civil rights movement and the Democratic and Republican Parties that is not generally known. Even as a college history major, I didn’t realize that it was Republican President Eisenhower who desegregated the American military and introduced the first civil rights act since reconstruction – The Civil Rights Act of 1957.

But, filling in the blanks and shattering myths is what this film is all about. According to Bryant, who had a front row seat to the civil rights movement in the South, “There is a 50-year-old lie that has caused an entire people to become harlots to the political idea that government knows what is best.”

Bryant is not alone in supporting this belief. The film’s theme reveals itself as Bryant travels the country interviewing people from every economic and social background. Dr. Alveda King, Economist Thomas Sowell, Florida Congressman Allen West, Presidential Candidate Herman Cain, commentator and activist Star Parker and talk show host David Webb are a few of the people Bryant encounters on his trek along the new Underground Railroad.

Good News: RNC Recommends Kid Gloves Treatment of Our Special, Historic President in 2012

Attacking him personally is just too doggone dangerous, they say.

Republicans on a private Republican National Committee conference call with allies warned Tuesday that party surrogates should refrain from personal attacks against President Barack Obama, because such a strategy is too hazardous for the GOP.

“We’re hesitant to jump on board with heavy attacks” personally against President Obama, Nicholas Thompson, the vice president of polling firm the Tarrance Group, said on the call. “There’s a lot of people who feel sorry for him.”

Recent polling data indicates that while the president suffers from significantly low job approval ratings, voters still give “high approval” to Obama personally, Thompson said.

Voters “don’t think he’s an evil man who’s out to change the United States” for the worse–even though many of the same survey respondents agree that his policies have harmed the country, Thompson said. The upshot, Thompson stressed, is that Republicans should “exercise some caution” when talking about the president personally.

Serious question: Are there Communist moles working at the RNC, now? They’re going to mute the truth about a guy who has taken a wrecking ball to the US economy in order to make the campaign season more palatable to people who FEEL SORRY for him? People who are still suffering from “white guilt” syndrome don’t need to be condescended to with focus group tested talking points. They need to be shaken and slapped out of it.  Good lord – don’t they get it at the RNC? This is what people hate about polished politicians, and it’s why Newt Gingrich is clobbering Mitt in the polls right now. He’s not letting anyone bully him into being “kind and gentle” with Obama.

In case  the RNC forgot,  we already tried a lukewarm strategy like that  – it’s called the McCain campaign, and it went down in flames.

The RNC had better get a clue and fast, because Obama has nothing holding him back from attacking his opponent (whomever it turns out to be) in the worst possible ways. In fact it has been predicted that 2012 will be the most brutal campaign season ever. And guess what? They’ll be using racial politics and class warfare because that’s what they’re good at.

William L Gensert at The American Thinker advises Repubs to beat Obama back.

Barack Obama will fight dirty.  The nation needs a candidate who will do the same.  After all, anyone who thinks that one of Herman Cain’s accusers, Sharon Bialek, living in the same building as David Axelrod is a coincidence is delusional.  Obama will run the most negative campaign in recent history.  There will be allegations of racism, of corruption, of incompetence.  The Republican nominee needs to understand that in order to beat someone at mud-wrestling, you must get in the mud.

Friedrich Nietzsche wrote in Beyond Good and Evil that “he who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster.”  No truer words were ever written.

Yet to do battle with Mr. Obama, any candidate will have to become something of a monster, aggressive and unremitting, without pause or embarrassment.  Nothing should be off the table: Obama’s associations with Bill Ayers, the former terrorist; his decades-long relationship with the race-baiting Jeremiah Wright, the religious zealot of “God damn America” fame; all the czars and disastrous nominations like Van Jones, an avowed “truther,” and Elizabeth Warren, who takes credit for the moral underpinnings of the OWS crowd, and Craig Becker, Obama’s recess appointment to the NLRB who is busy pushing through a pogrom of forced unionization and governmental control of industry by regulatory fiat, and Lisa Jackson, who as head of the EPA has made it her life’s goal to destroy America’s manufacturing, electrical generation, and fossil fuel industries, also through regulation, and the failed and incompetent Eric Holder, with his Fast and Furious program, where the administration sought to bolster support for gun control by deliberately arming Mexican drug cartels, resulting in hundreds of deaths in Mexico and one in America…as well as all the golf, all the vacations, the crony capitalism, the disregard for the Constitution.  On and on it goes, because Barack Obama has provided, in less than three years, plenty of ammunition to do battle against his most dismal presidency.

The Republican candidate cannot take the high road like John McCain and refuse to fight.  Barack Obama will not be constrained; he will use whatever he can against whoever is his opponent, without reservation, including every underhanded trick and lie at his disposal.  The legacy media will not only support him in this, but they will be complicit in his dirty politics

While conservatism is a set of principles for economic governance, liberalism is a religion for world control.  Like any creed, it must be believed wholeheartedly.  Then, all else loses significance.  The rule of law, moral convention, and civility mean nothing to someone confident that he is on the side of what is right and just.  As long as such people are true to the liberal faith, no law or ethic need apply to their actions.

The Republicans have to understand that mindset and get dirty — fight with both hands — for this election will be a battle to the death for the nation, and perhaps the world.

Barack Obama is the ultimate of bullies.  Yet, like most bullies, it is the challenge he fears, the truth he despises.  The ultimate terror for Barack Obama is that the world will see who he really is: a petty man of little talent and few gifts.

Once again, I quote Ann Barnhardt because she has the guts to define what we’re dealing with in the bluntest terms:
Psychopaths ‘like Eric Holder, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and all the rest, feel nothing when they lie and thus do it almost constantly. Oaths are something that they laugh at as the domain of stupid religious rednecks. If we don’t acknowledge this plain, obvious truth and stop treating these people as if they are psychologically normal and honorable and presuming that they are honest and bound by any oath, then they will destroy all of us with their lies and deceit.’
We need to be ruthless, too – while still honoring the truth and common decency.  With the truth on our side, we can drag Obama  through the mud of his own recent radical past, and his current track record as President. It’s okay to visit all of the scandals, and list all the things he’s doing to hurt the economy and it’s okay to ask the question, why? Why is he doing this to our great country? That question needs to be asked.
Other points of view:

I don’t know what this advisory means because “personally” means a lot of different things.

If they mean “it’s dangerous to claim he’s evil and deliberately wishes to plunge the country in Cloward-Piven chaos,” I agree, that is dangerous. Those in the middle do not believe this (because if they did believe this, they sure wouldn’t be in the middle!) and that’s too much of a buy-in to expect the politically unaffected to kick in, intellectually.

On the other hand, is it “personal” to note he’s a Stuttering Clusterf***k of a Miserable Failure? Okay, yes, with the swears, that’s personal; but pointing out someone’s policies are a complete and utter failure — most likely because they are based on a wrongheaded and thick-witted ignorance/denial of the workings of the real world — that’s not personal.
Ace notes in his next post that Obama’s class warfare speech today in Kansas was actually a rebuke of capitalism and an embrace of European style Socialism even as we watch it go down in flames:
But Europe is probably going to plunge into something in between a recession or a depression, and may erupt in violence and political disorder.

And Europe is Obama’s lodestar. That’s where he wants to take us. To the extent we haven’t gotten there yet, it’s because Americans are soft, lazy bitter clingers who hate other sorts of people (and their politico-economic systems).

So Europe’s 60 or 70 year history with socialism is about to end in violent upheavals and misery… and here’s this ignoramus saying that it’s capitalism which is the proven failure.

The SCOAMF knows what he’s doing.

Allahpundit:

I do think they’re right, though, about people liking or pitying O more than you’d expect given the relentless dreariness of his term. That’s what I was getting at last week when I wrote about his surprisingly high job approval numbers, and why I’ve written several times about how O’s perceived culpability for the protracted awfulness of the economy might actually shrink the more protracted that awfulness is. As bad as he’s been, he can always argue that he was handed a terrible hand; even if voters decide he’s too risky to bet on again, they’re bound to wonder if he’s being blamed for something no one realistically could have fixed in four years. There’ll be some electoral sympathy for him. The RNC’s simply trying to figure out how to keep it as dormant as possible.

Mike Hendrix is with me: “This party is too dumb to live”:

Good Lord, what vapid, spineless crap. As Mike Walsh says:

Gee, if Obama’s personal-approval numbers are still high, why would you want to take them down? Let them stay there, lest the Democrat-Media Complex accuse you of being a blue meanie.

It’s not Obama’s policies that are the problem, it’s Obama and everything he represents and stands for. Engage the president on the deepest, most potent level, or join John McCain and Bob Dole on the ash heap of history.

Please see this post for a further explanation to clueless RINO milksops. If this is their idea of how to save the country, then they need to go ahead and climb up onto that aforementioned ash heap just as quickly as possible. The sooner they get the hell out of the way, the less time and trouble we have to waste elbowing them aside. And time is something we don’t have a whole lot of.

“Smart Power”: The Obama Hates Netanyahu “Shock” Story

Obama’s “a good friend to Israel” except when he’s not:

According to a Monday report in the French website “Arret sur Images,” after facing reporters for a G20 press conference on Thursday, the two presidents retired to a private room, to further discuss the matters of the day.…

The conversation then drifted to Netanyahu, at which time Sarkozy declared: “I cannot stand him. He is a liar.” According to the report, Obama replied: “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!”

Pamela Geller reacted with characteristic subtlety:

What a vile embarrassment our stooge in the White House is. We expect this from the French — they partied with the Nazis after they marched into France. But this? It’s official: Obama is a scumbag.

He is lethal to liberty and to our allies in freedom. Could America sink any lower under this president? Don’t answer that.

Allahpundit reminds of us of some past clashes Obama’s had with Bibi:

Remember when he allegedly humiliated Netanyahu at the White House at a meeting in 2010, and then when Netanyahu humiliated O right back with that lecture in the Oval Office back in May about Israel’s borders? There’s no love lost here, although electoral concerns (if nothing else) will keep Obama a very willing partner with Israel for the next year. Philip Klein asks a good question, though:

All the reporters at G20 ignored it except for obscure French website? Hot mic and no one recorded?


Ben Howe explains all at RedState:

Now you may be asking yourself, “Self, why would this just be coming out now if it happened on Thursday?”  An excellent question, with an answer that is at the same time incredible and completely expected.  The press swore to keep it super-secret.

The surprising lack of coverage may be explained by a report alleging that reporters present at the event were requested to sign an agreement to keep mum on the subject of the embarrassing comments.

A member of the media confirmed Monday that “there were discussions between journalists and they agreed not to publish the comments due to the sensitivity of the issue.”

So basically the G20 became a high school dance where the two popular guys were overheard talking mad smack about the Jewish kid.

So there you go. As Howe concludes, “the world is in great hands”.
