Video: Steve Bannon Tells Hannity, Breitbart’s ‘Obama College Videos’ Will be Released in 7 – 10 Days

Via Your Daddy’s Politics:

Breitbart titillated his audience  at CPAC when he announced that he had tapes from when Obama was in college, but he visited the bloggers lounge, I couldn’t get him to tell me what kind of dirt he had or when he would release it. According to The Victory Film Group’s Steve Bannon, it will be soon. Breitbart was “fired up about them”, he said.

Sheriff Arpaio Posse Finds “Probable Cause” Obama’s Birth Certificate a Computer-Generated Forgery (Updated with Video)

I just tuned in to the Press conference – it started over an hour ago – but apparently his “cold case posse”  found Obama’s birth certificate to be a forgery. Now, they’re trying to find out who perpetrated the forgery. He refuses to accuse the President of anything. He claims to just be trying to get the facts. The media, as you can imagine have been mostly hostile in its questioning – not interested in Arpaio’s findings, just his motivations.

Live-streaming, here.  (Now over.)

WND reports:

The posse says it has identified at least one person of interest in the alleged forgery of Obama’s birth certificate.

Arapaio, known for his strict enforcement of immigration laws, commissioned the investigative team after local citizens presented him with a petition expressing concern that Obama might not be eligible for Arizona’s presidential ballot.

In addition to the live-streaming, WND is making available to the public a report distributed to media today by Arpaio’s investigators.


The posse, comprised of former law enforcement officers and lawyers with law enforcement experience, has interviewed dozens of witnesses and examined hundreds of documents. It also has taken numerous sworn statements from witnesses around the world.

Mike Zullo, Arpaio’s lead investigator, said his team believes the Hawaii Department of Health has engaged in a systematic effort to hide from public inspection any original 1961 birth records it may have in its possession.

“Officers of the Hawaii Department of Health and various elected Hawaiian public officials may have intentionally obscured 1961 birth records and procedures to avoid having to release to public inspection and to the examination of court-authorized forensic examiners any original Obama 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may or may not have,” Zullo said.

The investigators say the evidence contained in the computer-generated PDF file released by the White House as well as important deficiencies in the Hawaii process of certifying the long-form birth certificate establish probable cause that a forgery has been committed.

The investigation was launched after 250 members of the Surprise, Ariz., Tea Party, presented a signed petition to Arpaio in August 2011 asking him to undertake the investigation.

The Tea Party members petitioned under the premise that if a forged birth certificate was used to place Barack Obama on the 2012 Arizona presidential ballot, their rights as Maricopa County voters could be compromised.

Arpaio believes a congressional investigation might be warranted and has asked that any information relevant to the investigation held by other law enforcement agencies be forwarded to his office.

One interesting tidbit I picked up was their mention of a witness who is willing to come forward, who knew Obama in the ’80’s. Apparently, this person remembers talking to Obama in front of Bill Ayers’ mother’s house, talking about how they were helping him go to school here in the United States as a foreign student.

Huh? Michigan Republicans Change The Rules of Delegate Allocation To Give Romney The Win: 16 – 14

Are Michigan Republicans changing the rules because they didn’t like result? They’ve awarded their two “at large” delegates to Mitt Romney, even though party rules say they’re supposed to be awarded on a proportional basis based on the statewide popular vote.

The Political Wire reports:

Romney won the statewide vote by a 41% to 38% margin over Rick Santorum.

“The rest of the state’s delegates will be split evenly between Romney and Santorum because each won seven congressional districts across the state. As a result, Romney gets 16 delegates and Santorum 14.”


Detroit Free Press: Mitt Romney gets Michigan’s at-large delegates:

Saul Anuzis, a member of the credentials committee, said the party’s rules were passed in early February to award the two at-large delegates to the statewide winner, but that a memo sent, in error, to the candidates’ campaigns said the delegates would be distributed proportionately.

“While we regret the error in the memo, it does not change what was voted on by the committee,” Anuzis said. “This is much to do about nothing.”


ABC News: Michigan GOP Changes Delegate Rules, Gives Primary Edge to Romney:

The Michigan Republican Party voted to break a delegate tie Wednesday night, awarding 16 delegates to Mitt Romney and 14 to Rick Santorum.

The decision, which broke a 15-15 tie that would have resulted under the pre-primary interpretation of the rules, caused disbelief at Rick Santorum’s campaign. A spokesman rejected the decision.

Even Romney supporters in the Michigan GOP said the decision was unfair to Santorum.

“I have this crazy idea that you follow the rules,” said former Attorney General Mike Cox said after a 4-2 vote by a Michigan GOP credentialing committee, according to the AP. “I’d love to give the at-large delegates to Mitt Romney, but our rules provide for strict apportionment.”

Andrew Breitbart Dead at 43

“Mild-mannered family guy. Husky male model.

Unexpectedly, from —natural causes?

Fox News reported that he collapsed while walking near his home in Brentwood, and he has a history of heart problems… that’s all we know as of yet. I am shocked, and devastated…I had the opportunity to see him again, a few weeks ago at CPAC, and he was so full of life with two movies about to be released – Occupy Unmasked, and Hating Breitbart. He also made the announcement that he had some shocking video of Obama from his college days that he was going to release at an unstated time.

Here is the entire announcement from Big Government:

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.

We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us.


Media inquiries:

Rest in peace, Andrew Breitbart. Thoughts and prayers go out to him, his friends and family. He will be sorely missed by many.

As you can imagine, tears are flowing, and tongues are wagging, this morning. You can follow the discussion on Twitter, here.

I’ll be looking for my favorite Breitbart videos to put up, later today.


Michelle Malkin has published some of the hate tweets that are already appearing on Twitter. Conservatives are retweeting with gusto, just as Andrew would have liked it.

Ace: Breitbart’s CPAC Speech:

The left makes all of his arguments for him. All Breitbart had to do was add two letters: “RT” [re-tweet].

The left had a chance to prove Andrew Breitbart wrong today.

Instead, they proved him right. Even in death, Andrew Breitbart makes the stupid hate-bag puppets dance for his amusement, and for ours.

I thought at first his death was a punking. In a way, it is. He continues punking the left into exposing exactly what it is.

Ace: That About Wraps It Up For David Frum:

Andrew Breitbart died today. But he took David Frum’s last shred of credibility with him.


More on the circumstances surrounding his death via Fox News:

Breitbart was walking near his house in the Brentwood neighborhood shortly after midnight Thursday when he collapsed, his father-in-law Orson Bean said.

Someone saw him fall and called paramedics, who tried to revive him. They rushed him to the emergency room at UCLA Medical Center, Bean said. Breitbart had suffered heart problems a year earlier, but Bean said he could not pinpoint what happened.

“I don’t know what to say. It’s devastating,” Bean told The Associated Press.

Those who knew and worked with him described Breitbart almost uniformly as “fearless,” sharply intelligent, witty and devoted to his work.

“He was the modern conservative iteration of a 1960s radical,” conservative commentator Jonah Goldberg told Fox News, minutes after Breitbart’s death was reported.

“When I say he was the most fearless guy I ever knew, it really is true. I mean, he truly loved the fight,” he said.

Lot’s of people are linking to Andrew’s CPAC speech. Here it is, I said he was always a crowd favorite, and he was. I just loved the guy:
