Rush Limbaugh Names And Shames Perps In Wisconsin John Doe Scandal (Audio)

download (6)

For the second day in a row, an incensed Rush Limbaugh spent a significant portion of his show covering National Review’s bombshell report by David French detailing the state sponsored home invasions (or swattings as Patterico  called them) that were perpetrated against private citizens by a hyper political District Attorney, a rubber-stamping judge and an all too compliant police force in Wisconsin in the Fall of *2013.

As Rush noted, “truly outrageous things”  went on in the state of Wisconsin that was happening “at the same time as — and as part of — the effort to destroy Scott Walker.”

An effort was made “to destroy anybody and everybody who supported him and vote for him or donated money to him.”

“This effort was conducted by law enforcement!” Rush exclaimed.

The innocent in Wisconsin were guilty because they were conservative. The left in Wisconsin was losing everything. They were losing their union domination and control. Scott Walker was decimating all the systems they had put in place.

They literally lashed out in panic, anger, and you name it to punish people who had voted for Walker, who had raised money for him, who they thought had voted for him. It was the kind of thing that Vladimir Putin does and we all laugh about because that’s what we expect in a tyrannical dictatorship like the Soviet Union or Russia. We find out that it can happen here and has happened here, and there was no mechanism to stop it. The prosecutor’s name is Chisholm, John Chisholm, and I hope his name is never forgotten. .

The judge, without whom this case could not have happened, is Barbara Kluka, K-l-u-k-a, and I’ll tell you what she did.

She came along in the second John Doe investigation, and she approved every petition, every subpoena, every search warrant in the whole case in less than one day’s work. She enabled law enforcement to raid these innocent citizens’ homes. She’s since recused herself from this, but not before she enabled all of this to happen in the second phase of the John Doe 2 case here.

In the second John Doe case, the DA, John Chisholm, had no real evidence of wrongdoing by anybody. It didn’t stop him. Conservative groups were active in issue advocacy, which is protected by the First Amendment. It didn’t violate any campaign finance laws. Issue advocacy is politics 101. These people were targeted because they’re conservatives and liberals. As I say, what happened here in not only the treatment Scott Walker got, but everybody else, this is liberalism run amok without any checks, without any opposition, without anybody pushing back, and in its own way California is the same example.

Despite the fact that there were no violations of the law in any away, the DA, Chisholm, convinced “prosecutors in four other counties to launch their own John Does, with Judge Kluka overseeing all of them. Empowered by a rubber-stamp judge, partisan investigators ran amok. They subpoenaed and obtained (without the conservative targets’ knowledge) massive amounts of electronic data, including virtually all the targets’ personal e-mails and other electronic messages from outside e-mail vendors and communications companies. The investigations exploded into the open with a coordinated series of raids on October 3, 2013. These were home invasions,” including the ones that I have detailed previously in this half hour.

This entire affair does indeed rise to the level of scandal – and there are state officials  –  Chisholm and Kluka for starters – who should be disbarred and prosecuted for what they did.

(As a conservative, I am for naming and shaming evildoers. But not harassing or threatening them. That is the left’s purview. I hope the attention that this story has garnered on the right does not lead to anything like what conservatives – including Scott Walker himself – suffered at the hands of these left-wing totalitarian freaks. If they do not face justice in this world – they will face it in the next.)

Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees

It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are this weeks’ nominees….

Obama’s FBI Director James Comey!

 The Noisy Room : My nomination for WOTW is FBI Director James Comey for smearing one of
America’s remaining allies, Poland, over the Holocaust. Comey said in an
article penned earlier this week for the Washington Post: “In their
minds, the murderers and accomplices of Germany, and Poland, and
Hungary, and so many, many other places didn’t do something evil. They
convinced themselves it was the right thing to do, the thing they had to
do.” Poland says the passage wrongly implied it was complicit in the
Nazi genocide of European Jews.

Poland has summoned the United States’ ambassador in Warsaw over the
article and is demanding a public apology.

From Yahoo! News:

Poland’s ambassador to the United States said in a statement the
remarks were “unacceptable”, adding that he had sent a letter to
Comey “protesting the falsification of history, especially …
accusing Poles of perpetuating crimes which not only they did not
commit, but which they themselves were victims of.”

Shortly after Poland’s announcement, U.S. Ambassador in Warsaw
Stephen Mull told reporters he would attend a meeting at the foreign
ministry on Sunday afternoon.

“Suggestions that Poland, or any other country apart from the Nazi
Germany was responsible for the Holocaust are wrong, harmful and
offensive,” he added, speaking in Polish.

“I think that Comey’s wider message was that there were many people
in the world that aided the Nazi criminals, or there were people who
did not respond sufficiently, … also in the United States.”

Fail. I believe the smear was intentional because Poland is insisting on
a missile shield for defense and has criticized the US for lack of
effort in supporting the Ukraine and NATO. Comey weasely and slyly
smeared Poland as being just as bad, just as murderous, just as evil as
the Nazis to undermine them on the world stage. This is the regard Obama
holds our allies in. For dissing another ally that will soon join our
other ex-allies, Comey should get a 24k gold weasel with his face
imprinted on it. Same diff.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey!!

 The Independent Sentinel : General Dempsey is my hands-down weasel of the week. Weasel isn’t a strong enough word. He has decided to politicize his role and the Pentagon. To cover for Barack Obama, he described the imminent fall of Ramadi as not a real issue after so many military lost their lives or were wounded in Ramadi during the surge. Ramadi was the pivotal battle of the surge.

His comments this week are simply dishonest.

“The city itself, it’s not symbolic in any way. It’s not been declared, ya know, part of the caliphate on the one hand or central to Iraq. And the issue here is not brick and mortar. It’s about defeating ISIL, so, as I said, uh, oh, I’d much rather Ramadi not fall, but it won’t be the end of a campaign should it fall. We gotta get it back.”

Mikey Weinstein, Obama’s Personal Czar To Eradicate Christianity In The Military

 JoshuaPundit : A lot of people have never heard of Michael ‘Mikey’ Weinstein. But he’s an influential point man in one of President Barack Hussein Obama’s most ambitious projects.

Whether it’s trying to force  combat troops to give up their VA benefits, using their coffins as a campaign  photo-op or illegally suppressing their votes, President Obama has shown from day one that he pretty much despises the American military, especially their  values. Since most Americans do honor our military, the president’s solution is to change the nature of those whom serve to the degree possible. One way is to force as many men as possible out of the service, especially officers, and replace them with people more likely to see things this president’s way, especially when it comes to politics. A second front, if you will, is to change the military’s culture so that any semblance of Judeo-Christian expression and values are eliminated.

And that’s where a militant atheist like Mikey comes in. You see, Mikey and his ‘Military Religious Freedom Foundation’ are raking in lots of taxpayers dollars to wage war on Christianity in the military as official Pentagon consultants.

And Mikey Weinstein hates Christians (whom he sees as Tea Party right wingers) and Christianity with a special hatred, as well as religious Jews. He actually blamed Christians for the Fort Hood terrorist attack, saying proselytizing by “fundamentalist Christians”created a hostile environment that caused jihadist Major Nidal Hasan to go on his rampage,

As a result, both retention and enlistments are way down among believing Christians, who have always been disproportionally represented among those who volunteer for military service. And because Weinstein has particularly targeted chaplains, whom he wants out of uniform and denied all military rank and benefits,  recruiting Christian chaplains whom feel they can no longer practice their faith  has become extraordinarily difficult.

What this portends for the future of America’s military is not pleasant to contemplate.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels…ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Forum: Should Federal Laws On Marijuana Be Changed?

Every week on Monday morning , the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question: Should Federal Laws On Marijuana Be Changed?

 GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD : Certainly there is some kinda way to decriminalize weed without legalizing. As best understood, a first marijuana-possession offense is punishable by up to six months in jail, a fine of $1,000, or both. Considered as a serious misdemeanor.

Some reform ideas include that if a cat possess five or fewer grams, they would only be liable for 30 days in jail, a fine from $65 to $625, or both. It would also be classified as a simple misdemeanor.

Perhaps the best thing would be to confiscate the weed and give a ticket not unlike a traffic violation. Sans jail time (after all the courts are jammed up beyond repair with way more serious chiz than ppl having a laugh and getting all groovy).

If busted while operating a vehicle – the auto insurance corp in question could be notified granting higher rates for cats that dig smoking rides.

Bookworm Room : I hate marijuana. I hate the way it smells. And I hate the way it makes people boring and unambitious. Having said that, I don’t think we’ve done much good treating it as a criminal enterprise over the past many decades. The result is that it’s become a romantic outlaw drug that most young people think is harmless, when it should have been subject to the same degree of opprobrium as cigarettes.  After all, in both cases, people are sucking damaging carcinogens into their bodies.

If it were up to me, I’d subject it to the same legal restrictions as alcohol and cigarettes, and then I’d work hard to educate people about its myriad downsides. I’d also allow science to study carefully whether it really does have upsides in pain and disease management or whether those upsides are just part of the same romantic outlaw mythology. If marijuana really does have medicinal virtues, they should be encouraged as part of the range of choices available to people with health problems.

JoshuaPundit : It all depends on what your objective is. The fact is that for the most part prohibition doesn’t really work unless people elect to to do it themselves. That’s particularly true for marijuana, and there are some important reasons why.

First, pot is not only easy to obtain (easier than alcohol in a lot of places for those under a certain age), but it’s an aphrodisiac.

I myself preferred other drugs for the same reason I never smoked cigarettes. I simply didn’t like the feeling of smoke going into my lungs. But I frequently had marijuana around simply because a lot of  girls really liked it, especially as a prelude to other activities. Faced with prohibition versus hormones, which do you think people are going to choose? Not only that, but almost everybody thinks they’re indestructible at eighteen, no? So much for any lectures about health considerations.

Second, selling narcotics is a business, and that includes the new legal ‘medicinal ‘ weed too. In California, one of the few growing pieces of the economy is small ‘clinics’ where you can buy marijuana provided you have a prescription.They’re almost as common as McDonald’s.  L.A. Weekly has pages of ads from doctors offering the prescriptions. They’ll prompt  their customers on what to say about their ‘symptoms,’  generate a prescription and for a going rate of about $35, you have a pass to buy weed legally. And the state, city and county get nifty licensing fees, business taxes and sales taxes.So money talks, which is why changing Federal law is meaningless one way or the other.

Selling illegal narcotics is a big business too. And the same thing applies.

Hezbollah, Islamic State, the Taliban and Hamas all use the profits on illegal narcotics to fund their  operations, just like other criminal groups like the Mafia,  the Triads, the Mexican Cartels, The Union Corse, the Hell’s Angels and other similar groups do. The profits from illegal narcotics also fund other lucrative activities like human trafficking, sex slavery, kidnapping, murder for hire and protection rackets as well as Islamist terrorism for the usual suspects. There’s a good reason Hezbollah has its headquarters in  Lebanon’s Bek’aa Valley, one of the prime drug growing regions in the world.

Some of you might recall what happened to Bill Clinton’s Surgeon General Jocelyn Elder .  Like most of Clinton’s appointees she was looney tunes, but she manged to get this one right,All she had to do was merely suggest we should at least look at the logistics of legalizing  all narcotics and providing them free in detox clinics versus the billions we were spending on the War on Drugs, the cost of crime  and the huge, swollen criminal justice and law enforcement  monolith we erected as a byproduct.

I guarantee you the phone calls went out that night, not from some guy in named Guido in a sharp suit with a pinky ring but from legitimate donors who got a call from someone who got a call from someone else whom  knew and owed Guido. The  Democrat-dominated congress erupted and got her slapped down hard in a matter of days.

Like I said, big business and it’s all part of a chain.

Your friendly local dealer is usually part of the chain too. Unless he’s dealing in very minute volumes and goes unnoticed, sooner or later  he gets a visit from the marketing reps of whomever owns the territory he’s in. And after things are properly explained to him, he’s allowed to continue operating provided he kicks a percentage back upstairs. That’s also why most independent dealers also know exactly where to get whatever other adult refreshment you might want beyond weed.

But if the idea is reducing drug consumption, we see a way that self-prohibition could work, By educating young consumers in graphic detail on exactly what their guilty thrill is paying for and whatits supporting, complete with pictures, there’s an even chance of cutting down the consumption of illegal drugs substantially…by making buying them uncool and socially unacceptable to those budding lil’ social justice warriors.

The Glittering Eye :I’m of mixed minds. I think the advantages of legalization are being tremendously over-estimated and the downside risks even more tremendously under-estimated.

However, I also think that legalization is inevitable so we’d be better off devoting our energies to trying to figure out what the societal implications of legalization will be rather than to fighting it.

Well, there you have it!

Old Videos of Obama and His Communist Mentor Surface on the Internet (Video)

Last week, a video surfaced of Barack Obama explicitly and openly identifying the “poet named Frank” (as Obama refers to him in his autobiography Dreams From My Father) as Frank Marshall Davis. If there was any remaining doubt that his friend and mentor was indeed the card carrying Communist Frank Marshall DAvis, there should no longer be.

 The footage is said to have been recorded on September 20, 1995, with the program originally airing on Channel 37 Cambridge Municipal Television as an episode of the show, “The Author Series.”

***

In his remarks, Obama never identifies Davis as a communist or even a leftist. But the remarks do reflect the significant influence that Davis had over his young life as he was growing up in Hawaii. Obama talks about how Davis “schools” him on the subject of race relations. The term implies a teacher-student relationship the two of them had, confirming what we had reported back in 2008, that Davis had functioned as Obama’s “mentor.”

It’s important to understand what Obama is saying here. Getting ready to read directly from his book, Dreams from My Father, Obama talks about the passages ending with “me having a conversation with a close friend of my maternal grandfather, a close friend of gramps, a black man from Kansas, named Frank, actually at the time a fairly well-known poet named Frank Marshall Davis, who had moved to Hawaii and lived there, and so I have a discussion with him about the kinds of frustrations I’m  having, and he sorts of schools me that I should get used to these frustrations…”

Long story short – Obama was admitting that a card-carrying Communist – a man for whom he had great respect – had “schooled” him on white racism – among many other things.

Obama in his book recounts how, just prior to heading off to Occidental College in 1979, he spent some time with “Frank and his old Black Power dashiki self.” Obama writes that “Frank” told him that college was merely “an advanced degree in compromise,” and cautioned him not to “start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that sh–.” Davis also told Obama: “What I’m trying to tell you is your [white] grandma’s right to be scared…. She understands that black people have a reason to hate. That’s just how it is. For your sake, I wish it were otherwise. But it’s not. So you might as well get used to it.”

Davis penned many poems during his lifetime. One of them, titled “To the Red Army,” hailed the Soviet revolution and condemned the “rich industrialists” in Washington DC and London who allegedly wanted Hitler and the Nazis to “wipe Communism from the globe.”

Davis also wrote poems mocking traditional Christianity. In some of those compositions, he called Christ “a Dixie Nigger” who was nothing more than “another New White Hope”; he derided Christians as hypocrites “who buy righteousness like groceries”; and he spoke of Africans being killed with a “Christian gun” by missionaries following “the religion of Sweet Jesus,” rather than by a spear.

Another Davis poem, “Peace Quiz for America,” condemns “Uncle Sam” for having sent him to fight “against Axis foes in the death-kissed foxholes of New Guinea and Europe, without shielding my back from the sniping Dixie lynchers in the jungles of Texas and Florida.”

In 1968 Davis, under the pseudonym Bob Green, authored the book Sex Rebel: Black (Memoirs of a Gash Gourmet), an explict, pornographic autobiography published in San Diego by Greenleaf Classics. Emphasizing that “all incidents I have described here [in the book] have been taken from actual experiences,” Davis openly acknowledged that he lived the life of a sexual swinger:

 “I admit, however, that my sex syndrome may be more complex than that of many swingers and swappers…. Under certain circumstances I am bi-sexual…. I’m also a voyeur and exhibitionist. Occasionally I am mildly interested in sado-masochism.”

Further, the book described sexual encounters which the fictional Greene and his wife had experienced with underage children of both sexes

Twenty years later, in celebration of National Poetry Month,  Obama would advise America’s school children to read the poetry of Walt Whitman to understand America.

Now that he’s the president of a country that has not yet been fully transformed – it’s easy see why he snubbed his childhood mentor – who was after all, once a fairly well known poet.

Author Paul Kengor  outlined Davis’ essentials values in The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor:

  • Advocated wealth redistribution from (in his words) greedy “corporations” to “health insurance” and “public works projects”;
  • Favored taxpayer funding of universal health care;
  • Supported government stimulus and trumpeted the public sector over the private sector;
  • Dismissed traditional notions of American exceptionalism and framed the U.S. not as selflessly serving the post-World War II planet but instead as selfishly flaunting its so-called “mountainous ego” and “racist-imperialist-colonialist” ambitions;
  • Sought political support from the “social justice”-oriented Religious Left;
  • Viewed the Catholic Church as an obstacle to his vision for the state;
  • Vilified the “tentacles of big business,” bankers, big oil, “excess profits,” corporate fat cats and their “fat contracts,” “millionaires,” “rich men,” and the wealthy;
  • Attacked “GOP” tax cuts that “spare the rich” and benefit “millionaires” only;
  • Singled out the “corporate executive” for not paying his “fair share”;
  • Used slogans such as “change” and “forward.”

And now, a bizarre new video has surfaced of Frank Marshall Davis boasting about how he had steered the FBI away from the truth in order to hurt “Uncle Toms” and promote “militants”:

INTERVIEWER 1: You had some few later dealings with the FBI throughout your life, yeah?

FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS: Oh yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I’ve had the FBI, but I, I often had the FBI contacting me in, at the Associated Negro Press. They were going, they wanted to find out whether such and such a person who had applied for a job in Washington was a, a good risk. So I had determined that if this brother who applied for this job in Washington was an Uncle Tom, then I would tell the FBI that this person was no, was a risk, and he was no good. And so I, I used to work this in the reverse, and if a person had, was officially a militant, I would praise them the highest. I would say he is completely in favor of the Constitution of the, he supports the entire Constitution and so forth, so it would have just the, I hoped it would have just the opposite effect on the FBI.

INTERVIEWER 1: OK we’ll, we’ll stop right there on this one. Maybe it’ll be a good note to call it off.

According to Kengor,  during the Cold War, the FBI placed Davis on its security index –

which meant that if an armed conflict occurred between the U.S. and Soviet Union, the feds would’ve viewed Davis as a prime suspect for treason.

Davis was known to the FBI to be a Stalinist agent working in the United States – part of a well established communist network operating on the Hawaiian islands.

According to Davis’ FBI file, his column in the Recordconstantly followed the CP [Communist Party] line” and was “devoted to unrelenting and unmitigated complaints of racial discrimination in the United States.” Added the FBI file: “Davis has revealed himself to be a bitter opponent of capitalism and a staunch defender of … prominent Communists and Communist sympathizers.” Specifically, his weekly columns expressed support for theNational Lawyers Guild, Soviet Russia’s foreign policy in Southeast Asia, U.S. recognition of Communist China, the airing of black Americans’ grievances before the United Nations, American disarmament, and the acquittal of Soviet spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Moreover, Davis opposed the Smith Act of 1940, a federal statute that set criminal penalties for advocating the overthrow of the U.S. government.

Davis would continue writing for the Recorduntil May 1957.

In the late 1940s, Davis attempted to lead a hostile CPUSA takeover of the NAACP. In 1950 Edward Berman, a member of the NAACP’s Honolulu branch, testified to HUAC that Davis had “sneaked” into local NAACP meetings to “propagandize” the organization’s members about America’s “racial problems,” with “the avowed intent and purpose of converting it into a front for the Stalinist line.”

Davis was identified unequivocally as a CPUSA member in a 1951 report by the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii (CSALTH), which, like HUAC, charged that Davis was affiliated with a number of Communist-front organizations.

In May 1953 Davis was elected president of the Hawaii Civil Rights Congress, an affiliate of the Civil Rights Congress (which, as noted above, had already been cited by the U.S. government as a subversive organization).

Also in the early Fifties, Davis chaired the defense committee for the “Honolulu Seven,” a group of Communists who were charged with Smith Act violations and were convicted in 1953 of advocating the overthrow of the U.S. government by force and violence.

According to Max Friedman, a former undercover member of several Communist-controlled “anti-war” groups, Davis testified in 1956 before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee (which was investigating “the scope of Soviet activity in the United States”) and invoked his Fifth Amendment right when asked about his Communist Party membership.

According to the FBI, Davis in 1957 “championed the policies of Soviet Russia.”

In 1959 an FBI source who was close to Davis reported that Davis had been having conflict with his comrades at the ILWU and the Honolulu Record, because Davis was a “haole [Caucasian] hater.”

That a man like Frank Marshall Davis could be good friends with Obama’s white grandfather suggests only one thing. That Obama’s white grandfather was an ardent fellow traveler.

Why the FBI would be contacting Frank Marshall Davis for advice on new hires in Washington DC, is anyone’s guess. Was he a trusted informant by this time?

Considering his background (Read Kengor’s The Communist) it’s hard to believe this could be the case.

One HOPES that Davis was trying to prop himself up as some kind of left-wing hero – a once *in-demand* double agent who foiled the white power structure and stuff.

Creepy old shit.

Oh yeah – this Caucasian-hater was our president’s MENTOR.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) lambasted the nation’s top military commander on “America’s Newsroom” this morning. Speaking at a news conference yesterday, Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was asked about reports that the city of Ramadi, Iraq, is in danger of falling to ISIS. Dempsey appeared to be downplaying the significance of Ramadi falling into ISIS’ hands. “The city itself is not symbolic in any way. It’s not been declared part of the caliphate on one hand or central to the future of Iraq. … The issue here is not brick and mortar. It’s about defeating ISIL. I would much rather that Ramadi not fall but it won’t be the end of a campaign should it fall. We gotta get it back,” he said.

Christians, like my family, have been desperately trying to smuggle themselves out of Syria as ISIS tells them to convert or die and the White House ignores their desperate plight.

*** Recently, ISIS has attacked Christian families that were not able to leave or refused to leave their historic land in northeastern Syria. The region was controlled by Kurds, Christians, and moderate Sunni groups. However, due to the lack of sufficient arms, ISIS was able to capture a large part of that region. Hundreds of well-trained foreign jihadists have attacked Christian villages, taking tens of civilians as hostages.  The ancient archaeological history in many areas have been destroyed by the savages of ISIS.  The West seems to be helpless in helping the Syrian Christian community there. The Christians are not fleeing the death that they are facing in their historic lands, neither are they being armed in order to defend themselves.
