Snowden forces Obama’s hand on surveillance program, Patriot whistleblower or criminal?, New reforms of government programs, Russian asylum prompted Obama to cancel planned meeting

“The US government is not going to be able to cover this up by jailing or murdering me,”…Edward Snowden

“Snowden has shared encoded copies of all the documents he took so that they won’t disappear if he does, Glenn Greenwald tells Eli Lake.”… The Daily Beast June 25, 2013


“A Party member lives from birth to death under the eye of the Thought Police. Even when he is alone he can never be sure that he is alone. Wherever he may be, asleep or awake, working or resting, in his bath or in bed, he can be inspected without warning and without knowing that he is being inspected. Nothing that he does is indifferent.”…George Orwell, “1984″


Edward Snowden.

Patriot, whistleblower or criminal?

Too early to tell.

From NBC News August 9, 2013.

“Snowden revelations force Obama’s hand on surveillance program”

“NSA leaker Edward Snowden’s revelations have forced President Barack Obama’s hand, leading the president to announce new reforms of the government’s classified surveillance programs.

After his administration issued repeated defenses of a National Security Agency monitoring program that collects Americans’ phone and Internet data, Obama announced during a press conference Friday afternoon that reforms to the system will make the collection activities more transparent and “give the American people additional confidence that there are additional safeguards against abuse.”

Obama said the changes will include changes to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court system — which currently greenlights requests for data gathering —  as well as the creation of both an internal NSA position devoted to privacy and an external working group to evaluate transparency in the program.  Officials will also launch a new website next week that will serve as “a hub for further transparency” for interested members of the public.

“Given the history of abuse by governments, it’s right to ask questions about surveillance by governments, particularly as technology is reshaping every aspects of our lives,” he said.

Obama’s announcement comes even as Snowden — the defense-contractor-turned-fugitive who released information to reporters about the NSA’s monitoring programs — has been charged with theft of government property and two offenses under U.S. espionage law.

He continues to evade extradition to the United States under a temporary asylum granted by the Russian government  – an agreement that prompted Obama to cancel a planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in protest.

Snowden has generated strong feelings in the wake of disclosures, with many lawmakers decrying him as treasonous for releasing the information while others have used the case to press their concerns about how the government is watching American citizens.

Obama bluntly rejected the idea Friday that Snowden’s actions were patriotic.

“No, I don’t think Mr. Snowden is a patriot,” he said, adding that he would have preferred a “lawful, orderly” debate over privacy concerns rather than finger-pointing in the wake of the leaks.

But while the president has declined in the past to say whether he considers Snowden a “whistleblower” as supporters of the alleged leaker claim, Snowden’s actions were at the very least a catalyst for the coming reforms, which he says will establish additional layers of oversight to reign in possible abuses of the NSA practices.”

“”The fact that I said that the programs are operating in a way that prevents abuse — that continues to be true without the reforms,” he said. “The question is ‘how do I make the American people more comfortable?'”

And, at the moment, polling shows that’s not the case.

A NBC/WSJ poll last month showed that 56 percent of Americans say they’re worried the United States will go too far in violating privacy rights. That’s a dramatic shift from the national environment after the 9/11 terror attacks, when 55 percent of Americans said they worried that the United States would not go far enough in monitoring potential terrorists who live in the United States.”

    Obamacare installs new scrutiny, fines for charitable hospitals that treat uninsured people

    “It requires tax-exempt hospitals to do a community needs survey and file additional paperwork with the IRS every three years. This is to prove that the charitable hospital is still needed in their geographical area — ‘needed’ as defined by Obamacare and overseen by IRS bureaucrats,” said John Kartch, spokesman for Americans for Tax Reform.

    “Failure to comply, or to prove this continuing need, could result in the loss of the hospital’s tax-exempt status. The hospital would then become a for-profit venture, paying income tax — hence the positive revenue score” for the federal government, Kartch said. “Obamacare advocates turned over every rock to find as much tax money as possible.”

    Additionally, the rise in the number of insured Americans under Obamacare will make it more difficult for tax-exempt hospitals to continue meeting required thresholds for treating the uninsured, driving more hospitals into the for-profit category and yielding more taxable money for the federal government.

  3. Report: Whistleblower Claiming Obama Received Financial
    Aid As Indonesian Citizen Being Harassed By FBI

    Press release: Holder Department of Justice and Mueller/Comey FBI harass and terrorize whistle blower Laurie Hathaway, who provided Attorney Orly Taitz with information showing Obama receiving an educational loan as a citizen of Indonesia. Public is requested to assist Attorney Orly Taitz in contacting every member of the House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight Committee and demand immediate investigation of Obama and FBI

    – See more at:

  4. Darrell Issa
    Chair of the House Oversight Committee

    Re Harassment and intimidation of the whistle blowers by the FBI. Request for help and assistance.


    1. My name is Orly Taitz. I am a licensed attorney and a licensed Doctor of Dental Surgery. As an attorney and an officer of the court I swear under the penalty of perjury that all of the information below is true and correct and to the best of my knowledge and informed consent.

    2. I am a President of Defend our Freedoms Foundation which is designed to preserve the constitutional freedoms of the U.S. citizens. In my youth I lived in the communist dictatorship of the Soviet Union and I am greatly concerned about the loss of the constitutional freedoms of the US citizens in the past few years.

    3. In May of 2013 I participated at a Washington DC rally organized by a number of the US congressmen protesting the mega amnesty of millions of illegals that is currently pushed by the Democratic party as well as targeting of the conservative organizations by the IRS.

    4. At the rally I met a whistle blower, employee of the HESC -Higher Education Services Corporation, Ms. Laurie Hathaway.

    5. Ms. Hathaway advised me that she is desperately trying to provide the public with evidence of fraud committed by Barack Obama, specifically the fact that Barack Obama received an educational loan from HESC as a foreign citizen, a citizen of Indonesia. As a citizen of Indonesia he is not eligible to be the U.S. President. Ms. Hathaway stated that she forwarded this information to Sheriff Arpaio as well.

    6. Ms. Hathaway has sworn to me that she personally saw the documents, showing Barack Obama listed as a foreign national, citizen of Indonesia in his loan documents.

    7. Ms. Hathaway stated that the documents are never discarded and are kept in the vault at the HESC head quarters at Buffalo, New York. She advised me that other employees of the HESC saw the same documents and aware of Obama’s loans received based on his status of a foreign student and fraud committed by Obama in asserting his eligibility for the U.S. Presidency claiming the U.S. citizenship, while retaining the Indonesian citizenship.

    8. I did my due diligence and checked and verified that Laurie Hathaway is indeed an employee of HESC in Buffalo, New York. I have in my position her e-mail address at the HESC and other identifying information.

    9. Ms. Hathaway promised to obtain a copy of the document and forward it to me.

    10. After the meeting I had one or two phone conversations with Ms. Hathaway and received one or two e-mails from her.

    11. Shortly thereafter Ms. Hathaway’s cell phone was disconnected and nobody responded at her home number.

    12. On 08.10.2013 I tried to contact her again. As I was leaving a message for her, a man answered the phone. The man sounded very frightened and asked me not to call or e-mail Ms. Hathaway because FBI is investigating Ms. Hathaway because she blew the whistle and provided information to me. They are afraid of the FBI. This phone conversation took place at 10:59 am, PST on 08.10.2013.

    13. Intimidation and harassment of the whistle blower Laurie Hathaway by Holder Department of Justice and Mueller/Comey FBI is akin to the intimidation of citizens by the Hitler NAZI Gestapo or SS troops. This nation is rapidly becoming another NAZI tyranny, unless this is stopped by someone in the U.S. Congress or Judiciary who still retains one drop of decency, integrity, moral values and respect for the rule of law and the Constitution.

    I am attaching herein a 146 file of additional evidence showing the citizen of Indonesia, Barack Obama, using a stolen Social Security number and fabricated IDs as a basis of his identity and eligibility to the U.S. Presidency and in order to defraud the U.S. citizens and usurp the position of the U.S. President and Commander-in Chief based on fraud, harassment, intimidation and use of multiple agencies of the U.S. government for purposes of terror an harassment of whistle blowers. I am prepared to testify before the U.S. Congress and attest to the authenticity of each and every document in the file as well as provide names of multiple other whistle blowers against Obama being terrorized and intimidated by the Department of Justice/FBI, other governmental officials, as well as by a number of state and federal judges.

    I am requesting an immediate investigation by the U.S. Congress of the fact that a citizen of Indonesia, Barack Obama, is usurping the U.S. Presidency based on fraud, harassment, intimidation and use of stolen and fabricated IDs. I am also requesting a congressional investigation of the employees of the U.S. government, including employees of the Department of Justice and the FBI, federal and State judges, who are criminally complicit in the cover up of Obama’s fraudulent IDs and criminally complicit in terror and harassment of the whistle blowers who provided the aforementioned information to me.

    End of Affidavit.

  6. Rapidly growing overpasses movement inspires citizens to stand for impeachment

    August 10, 2013

    The Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment movement is growing rapidly, it now has 30,000 members nationally and will soon grow to more than 100,000, says founder James Neighbors, who interviewed with Arlington Conservative Examiner today. Neighbors is National Coordinator and Founder of the Overpasses movement.
    The 35,000 members have joined one of the 50 state Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment Facebook groups, where the groups are used by the movement to organize and coordinate events and communicate with members online. Social networking sites have proven effective for the movement to communicate with members, recruit new members, and organize rallies and groups in all 50 states.

    The Overpasses movement urged all citizens to get involved. This page hosted on a blog site called Ann Loves America lists the Facebook groups for the Overpasses groups in all 50 states. Using that link, one can find a state group and within that group one can link up with local members to either participate in or organize a rally in their area to help demand that Congress impeach the president.

    “Rep. Duncan Hunter: Concerns About Obama’s Birth Certificate: Following As It Progresses”

    “Patriot William Lolli contacted Rep. Hunter about Obama’s felony identity document fraud and here’s his response: [go to link]”

    “Here’s Mr. Lolli’s response back to Rep. Hunter:

    “Congressman Hunter,
    Thank you for your reply to my concerns that the president continues to engage in felony activity by the continued propagation and use of forged documents.
    Your response below, however, is typical of Washington sophistry, as it skirts the issues as well as your oath of office.
    Let me put it this way:
    If you were notified that someone used forgery to gain access to your bank account and stole all your money, you would notify the authorities, would you not?
    So imagine your response when the authorities respond to your concerns with the placation that they believe that “groups and individuals should continue to have the opportunity to present any facts on this matter” and that they would follow the theft of your money “as it progresses”.
    Needless to say, I believe that you would conclude that the authorities were lacking moral clarity, skirting their sworn duty to uphold the law, and cared not one whit about on-going criminal activity.
    In such a case, would you not agree that such authorities are not fit for public office? I would. And just in case I am not making myself clear– I am speaking of you.
    If you continue in this amoral stance to refuse to examine and take action on the evidence that is now available from law enforcement, I will have no choice but to oppose you in the next election– and do all in my power to see to it that you are removed from office. As we have learned from the case of Bob Filner, even Democrats will support law enforcement when the crime is blatantly significant. Why can’t you?
    William Lolli, MCSE”
    Duncan D. Hunter:

    “Duncan Duane Hunter (born December 7, 1976) is a member of the United States House of Representatives. He has served in Congress since 2009, previously representing California’s 52nd congressional district, where he was preceded in office by his father, Duncan Lee Hunter. … Like his father was, Hunter is a member of the Republican Study Committee.”

    “Duncan Lee Hunter (born May 31, 1948) is an American politician. He was a Republican member of the House of Representatives from California’s 52nd, 45th and 42nd districts from 1981 to 2009.”

The Geastapo was formed for the express purpose of RIDDING HITLER of suspicious people withinthe THIRD REICH. Now we have the NSA whose function is exactly that of the old Gestapo..I really hope everybody enjoys having all of their personal business being gathered by the NSA. If you sit still for it then LIVE @WITH IT. If yopu do nothing ,or you are too busy to do anything,then you shall GET EVERYTHING THAT YOU DESERVE.

  11. For those who are IGNORANT of our HISTORY…….then here is somethging for you to check out at Wikipedia if you think I am lying. Enter the name Alfonso Mussolini into your search engine then read about Mr, Mussolini and what happened to him. Still think that nothing happened to him ? So just for starters take a look at Italian history from well.

  12. typo……….Imistakenly entered the given name of Benito Mussolini as Alfonso. I was thinking of a famous Chicago murderer when I entered the Alfonse (Capone) who was of course ANOTHER WOP!

    Doesn’t that take the cake? Imagine, he refers to the Constitution as being 20 centuries old…..Yikes! The bummer is a complete impostor, and I believe a foreigner who was groomed for the W.H.

  17. You know, when the former KGB trained agents to infiltrate a country, they gave them a crash course in the history of the country and its customs. From everything I’ve seen, I believe his own personal history has been constructed with pictures photoshopped to give him a past identity, together with his “books”. I believe most people would be shocked if they knew the real truth.

  18. Bob,

    Keep in mind that during the formative years, age seven to ten, while our school children were reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every morning, Barack Hussein Obama was in Indonesia responding to the Islamic call to prayer. Patriotism was not instilled in his heart as a child like our children, but instead he was instructed on devotion to Allah. This could explain why he doesn’t seem to have any loyalty to this country or our Constitution.

    ItsObvious: “Any congressman who believes that ignoring Obama’s ineligibility is a good thing to do in order to save the country from the damage that would be done by acting on his ineligibility is a fool. The damage has already been done. To continue to deliberately ignore the Constitution and let stand the actions of a foreign agent and usurper of the presidency leads eventually to the complete destruction of the United States of America as we know it.”

  23. Good morning cabby and Sue,

    I thank God for you two and all who comment here. I thank God for citizenwells and for the opportunity to share in a community of Spirit Filled Believers who understand fully the great dangers our country is facing.

    This prayer was posted at The Daily Pen. I requested and received permission to share it with friends. I printed a copy and posted it next to my computer as a reminder to pray unceasingly for God’s Mercy. We have to take our country back.

    Our Heavenly Father,
    Please forgive us of our sins.
    Have mercy and grace for our fallen ways and lift us up to fulfill the purpose You have for our lives. Help us, oh Mighty King! Please don’t turn away from us. We are oppressed under the lies of the powerful and hateful.

    In Christ’s name, we give You praise and honor in faith knowing Your will shall be done in all things for Your glory and blessings upon those who love You. Thank You, Father, for this new day. Grant us peace and wisdom and strength with the provision of this day’s bread of Life.

    Father, what shall we do without you? Please protect us! Set us free with the knowing of the truth, by the ransom paid with the shedding of blood of those before us. My God, my God…You are the only Father. If You do not defend us…who will? Why do You delay? Why are You withholding Your defense of Your children? In the name of Christ, our King, come Lord and shed light unto this dark place. Reveal the Kingdom power against deceptions of this hateful brood. You are our King! We repent and ask for Your forgiveness and mercy and Love and honor and help!

    In Jesus’ name, Who is our King… Amen

  25. Obama DHS Publishes Instructions for Asylum Loophole on Internet

    And we’re now footing the hotel bills for all these new easy access illegals….on top of all the other freebies that are draining the working. Welcome drug cartels….the door is wide open.

    The process for people attempting to enter the country illegally through the Mexican border has often been characterized as grueling, dangerous and even potentially deadly; a trek across smoldering hot deserts led by ruthless ‘coyotes’ who profit from human suffering.

    Meet the new coyotes: immigration attorneys and government rule-writers.

    According to the clear guidelines published on the Internet and updated by the Obama administration in mid-June, there’s an easier way to cross to gain entrance to the United States: simply step right up to a border crossing and tell the officials that you have a “crediblee fear” of persecution or torture. Use that exact phrasing and you may be able to enter the USA while you await a hearing before an immigration judge…a process that could take years.

    As Breitbart News reported yesterday in a story that swept through the Internet, that’s exactly what’s been happening recently with a flood of new asylum requests that seem designed to overwhelm the system.

  29. My daughter from NC was visiting last week and was telling me that NC elected a Republican governor and that changes were soon to come. Looks like she was right. The Dems are throwing a tantrum, same as they did in MO when we passed a similar law. Except our Dem Governor vetoed it………

    North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) on Monday signed into law one of the nation’s most wide-ranging Voter ID laws.

    (Rob Taylor/AP Photo/The Daily Reflector)

    The measure requires voters to present government-issued photo identification at the polls and shortens the early voting period from 17 to 10 days. It will also end pre-registration for 16- and 17-year-old voters who will be 18 on Election Day and eliminates same-day voter registration.

    Democrats and minority groups have been fighting against the changes, arguing that they represent an effort to suppress the minority vote and the youth vote, along with reducing Democrats’ advantage in early voting. They point out that there is little documented evidence of voter fraud.

    Most likely Obama & Holder will go after NC (just like in TX) to keep them from implementing the voter ID law.

    GOP congressman: Probably have enough votes in House to impeach Obama [VIDEO]
    Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican, told constituents at a townhall over the weekend that the House of Representatives would “probably” have enough votes to impeach President Obama.
    Farenthold was in Luling, Texas on Saturday, and after stepping past a question about the president’s birth certificate, suggested that the House would have the votes to impeach the president, but the Democratic Senate would kill the effort.
    “A question I get a lot — ‘If everybody’s so unhappy with what the president’s doing, why don’t you impeach him?’” Farenthold said.
    “I’ll give you a real frank answer about that. If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it, but it would go to the Senate and he wouldn’t be convicted.”
    A video of the remarks — filmed presumably by the woman who asked about Obama’s birth certificate, based on the video’s description — was posted to YouTube Sunday.

    bob68: “Yes, your article posted on January 24th 2010 was spot on. Congress has dug in their heels to prevent the full truth from being exposed. They are guilty of treason at the highest levels.

    Congress will never attempt to impeach or investigate Obama because to do so would reveal the truth, including members and especially leadership, assistance in Obama’s usurpation of the presidency and in the four plus year cover-up..

    Congress believes their only choice is to run out the clock and have Obama exit the office having been officially considered a legitimate president. Anything else risk charges against Congress for their complicity in getting an ineligible, identity fraud con-artist elected.

    This gives Obama a free pass to do anything he wants without fear of impeachment or investigation.

    Congress protects Obama to protect themselves.”

    Philo-Publius commented:

    “Most likely Obama & Holder will go after NC (just like in TX) to keep them from implementing the voter ID law.”

    And once again, Obama and Holder will be overstepping their authority. Have they even won, one of these cases?

    How much money does it cost the states AND feds? The states spending money because the feds want to dictate.

    States should decide how elections are handled.

    And I don’t need one of them fancy papers saying I know what I’m talking about, to know what I’m talking about.

    As far as the video of the congressman admitting that nothing would be done to someone who should be held responsible for what he has done, is simply more proof that BOTH sides know about this, and now it seems they are getting pretty comfortable admitting that they themselves are committing acts that they should be held accountable for.

    Official: Embassy Attack Threat “Had No Basis in Fact”

    A high-ranking Yemeni security official has told McClatchy that the Obama administration’s recently announced terror threat which supposedly targeted US embassies had “no basis in fact” and was manufactured merely to dampen opposition to drone strikes.

    After initially warning of a terror plot “thought to have been one of the most serious against American and other Western interests since the September 11 attacks,” the US closed 20 embassies and consulates earlier this month, 18 of which reopened yesterday.

    The announcement of the threat occurred as it was simultaneously acknowledged that the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi last year was linked to a clandestine CIA arms smuggling operation based in the Libyan city that was being used to transport arms to rebels in Syria, many of whom are allied with Al-Qaeda militants.

    The announcement of the threat against US embassies also served to justify blanket NSA surveillance, leading some to suggest that the alleged plot was being hyped to distract from the Edward Snowden scandal. It was later claimed that the NSA had intercepted a “conference call” of Al-Qaeda members during which militants discussed an attack.

    However, in a report entitled U.S. embassies in Muslim world reopen amid still-murky threats, McClatchy cites, “A high-ranking Yemeni security official speaking on the condition of anonymity,” who told the news outlet that the threat “had no basis in fact,” with the source bemusedly attributing “media reports about imminent terror strikes to a single official’s comments, which he cast as a misguided attempt at shifting public opinion in the face of increasing and unpopular American drone strikes.”

    Dozens of people, labeled “suspected militants” by the US, have been killed in Yemen over the last two weeks as a result of at least eight drone strikes, attacks that have outraged Yemeni citizens. According to Princeton University professor and Yemen expert Gregory Johnson, the drone strikes are actually serving to recruit more terrorists.

    Border Agents Overwhelmed by Mexicans Using ‘Fear’ Scam to Gain Entry

    A flood of new immigrants crossing the Mexican border are using what some officials believe is a coordinated scam which has forced the closure of at least one overwhelmed federal processing center.

    The local ABC News affiliate in San Diego reports that nearly 200 immigrants inundated the Otay crossing on Monday, and that all are using the phrase “credible fear” of drug cartels in Mexico as their reason for fleeing Mexico.

    “They are being told if they come across, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they will be allowed into the country,” said a border agent who wanted to remain anonymous.

    “We are being overwhelmed,” the agent said.

    Unnamed sources told the News Team 10 reporters that for $300, immigrants can buy a video in Mexico that instructs them on how to beat the system by learning key phrases to gain immediate entry into the U.S.

    “There has to be a policy change, something implemented, an emergency implication that will stop this, or otherwise we will have thousands coming in, into the United States,” the agent said.

    Pete Nunez, a former U.S. attorney who specializes in immigration issues, told the ABC station said the sudden surge appears to be well orchestrated and “makes our system even more ridiculous than it has been in the past.”

    The claim also guarantees special treatment for the immigrants.

    Families cannot be split up in detention, and with groups of relatives numbering as high as 30 making the claim, the only option for federal officials is to release the immigrants into the U.S. on a bond system until a scheduled court hearing to prove their claim is legitimate.

    But sources told the San Diego TV station that under this system, the immigrants never return and instead disappear into the U.S.

    “It’s a huge loophole. If the government doesn’t figure out some way to combat it, they are going to be deluged,” said Nunez.

  52. I think we know how this is going to turn out:

    The man who misled Congress on spying will pick Obama’s intelligence review panel

    On Friday, President Obama promised to appoint an “independent group” of “outside experts” to review the government’s surveillance programs.

    Today, the president formally ordered the formation of this group, giving us a sense for just how independent the group would be. The announcement doesn’t inspire confidence that the president is interested in truly independent scrutiny of the nation’s surveillance programs.

    The panel will be chosen by, and report to, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Clapper famously answered “no sir” when Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked whether the NSA collects information about millions of Americans. Clapper has since conceded that this answer was “clearly erroneous.”

    And there are other signs that the group won’t turn out quite the way the president described it on Friday. Friday’s speech talked about the need for input from outside experts with independent points of view. The president made no mention of the need for outsiders or independent viewpoints in his memo to Clapper.

    The stated mission of the group has also shifted. On Friday, Obama said the group would examine “how we can maintain the trust of the people, how we can make sure that there absolutely is no abuse.” But today’s memo makes no mention of preventing abuses. Instead, it will examine whether U.S. surveillance activity “optimally protects our national security and advances our foreign policy while appropriately accounting for other policy considerations, such as the risk of unauthorized disclosure and our need to maintain the public trust.”

  53. There are gathering storm clouds over Egypt. It is entirely possible and even probable that the US will commit troops to help the Morsi be elected once again. In Egypt.

  54. The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
    Washington, DC 20500

    Mr. Obama:
    I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally.

    You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United States . You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.

    I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

    Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States ? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?

    Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia …. You didn’t show Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia .. How dare you, sir! How dare you!

    You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don’t want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey …… You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What’s the matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.

    You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.

    What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven’t said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn’t!
    Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that’s $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now?

    I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you.

    I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.

    Every real American
    P.S. I rarely ask that emails be ‘passed around’……………..PLEASE SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST……it’s past time for all Americans to wake up!

  55. Have you wondered why Senators McCain and Graham are calling for the release of the Muslim Brotherhood prisoners in Egypt? Hmmm, Walid Shoebat, a former MB member, may have the answer, and it involves the son of a famous prisoner (not Mursi).

  56. Guess this proves the reasons this guy was generally known as “Wesley the weasel” even by the troops. Typical lib:

    Gen. Clark claims he’s a victim of ‘indignities’ by wife as grounds for divorce, NOT his new bombshell girlfriend

    Gen. Wesley Clark claimed he’s the victim of “general indignities” by his wife, in divorce papers that blame her for their marriage’s breakdown — and not his alleged fling with a much-younger woman.

    The 68-year-old former NATO Supreme Commander is filing for divorce in Arkansas against Gertrude Kingston Clark, in hopes of ending their 46-year marriage.

    Clark cited “general indignities” for the reason behind the divorce, according to the Daily Mail.

    Under Arkansas Supreme Court guidelines, “general indignities” is a catch-all term that could include: “Rudeness, vulgarity, unmerited reproach, haughtiness, contempt, contumeliousness, studied neglect, intentional incivility, injury, manifest disdain, abusive language, malignant ridicule and every other plain manifestation of settled hate, alienation, and estrangement.”

    Legal experts said “general indignities” is the equivalent of the standard, blame-less “irreconcilable differences” used in most states.

    Arkansas divorces require the moving side to state reasons for the split.

    The former Democratic presidential hopeful has been spotted this year, romancing 30-year-old New York fashion executive Shauna Mei.

    Gen. Clark’s dumping of wife Gertrude for the the young socialite Mei has crushed the loyal spouse, who moved 32 times to be with her husband during his long military career.

    “Gert is absolutely shattered by the divorce. She never saw it coming,” a friend of hers said.

    “She is a very devout Catholic and the thought of divorce is abhorrent to her. She has been a loyal wife to Gen. Clark and followed him wherever his career has taken him. She feels utterly betrayed by this.”

    Clark has moved out of the Little Rock, Ark., home he once shared with his wife Page Six previously reported.

    He now splits time between Mei’s NoHo pad and his condo back in Little Rock.

    Clark met the young paramour Mei earlier this year in Carlsbad, Calif., when they attended a symposium organized by Deepak Chopra.

    I am just one of a whole lot of people who read your letter. You are a teacher of children at fourth grade level, and I gather that you are teaching what our children SHOULD BE LEARNING. This will certainly make you extremely unpopular with your peers who teach only the PROGRESSIVE PROPAGANDA. Coming from a 4th grade teacher I have to say that you are indeed one very brave individual. Now all we need is another few million school teachers who believe as you do. Three cheers for you and hopefully all who read your letter will stand and CHEER YOU.

  58. Perhaps it is time for an in depth look at the social meanderings of the upper echelon JOINT CHIEFS. It would not be a surprise to me if somebody some real NASTY DIRT on EVERY one of them. Perhaps at the same time somebody ought to take a look at the arbitors within the MILITARY JUSTICE SYSTEM AS WELL. When they CONVICT AN OFFICER who was DOING EXACTLY what was expected of him it is time to START CLEANING HOUSE. He SWORE TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION OF THE US and was IMPRISONED FOR IT. US veterans DO NOT FORGET!

  59. While it is certainly Mr.Clark’s privilege to divorce his wife, I for one would question who it really is who is the perpetrator. A wife who follows her husband ,and is as devoted to him as she obviously was would have the right of REDRESS in a very hefty fine against the PLAYBOY! She has spent a lifetime with him and now faces severe upheaval in her life. While morality is not what laws are founded with I believe that here is the exception and Mr. Clark should be HEAVILY fined. Let him PAY TO PLAY. WOW where have I heard that expression before?

  60. Rubio, like so many who are still wet behind the ears and wanting to make a name for themselves, is always on the defensive like so many RINOs.

Some people never learn…esp. when they’re desperate for attention!

    Rubio: Obama Could Legalize Millions by Executive Order

    Sen. Marco Rubio said on Tuesday that President Barack Obama might be “tempted” to legalize 11 million illegal immigrants if Congress did not pass a comprehensive reform bill within the next year.

    “I believe that this president will be tempted, if nothing happens in Congress, he will be tempted to issue an executive order like he did for the DREAM Act kids a year ago, where he basically legalizes 11 million people by the sign of a pen,” the Florida Republican said on “The Morning Show with Preston Scott” on Tallahassee radio station WFLA.

    “Now, we won’t get an E-Verify, we won’t get any border security. But he’ll legalize them,” Rubio said.

    Citing last year’s move to allow many immigrants brought here illegally as children to remain in the country legally, Rubio said delays on Capitol Hill could force Obama to grant the mass legalization.

  61. Ann Coulter Uncertain Whether Ted Cruz
    Eligible for Presidency: ‘It’s Not Open and Shut’

    By Andrew Kirell @ Mediaite

    While she “loves” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as a potential presidential candidate, Ann Coulter is not entirely certain whether the Texas Republican would be eligible under constitutional requiring the president to be a “natural-born citizen.”

    Geraldo Rivera insisted that Cruz having been born in Canada to a Cuban father and American mother causes a bit of a legal headache, considering Article 2, Section 1′s requirement that “No person except a natural born Citizen” may be eligible for the presidency.

    “It’s not open and shut,” Coulter conceded, adding that “We’re gonna have to have some law professors look at it and give us the answer.” […] Continued at Mediaite. – See more at:

  65. Sen. Rubio, ‘You Know Nothing About Our Border’: Arizona Sheriff Hammers Immigration Bill Supporters and Offers Revealing Picture of the Border

    “Look at (Sen. Marco) Rubio out of Florida — have you been down here, Rubio?” he said, noting that drug cartels had just replaced a radio relay station on the mountain that the sheriff’s team had taken down less than three weeks earlier.

    The Sinaloa Cartel, one of Mexico’s most powerful drug organizations, uses the ”receiver/transmitter to extend their communication footprint between Mexico and the Huachuca mountains,” a U.S. Intelligence official, familiar with the terrain, told TheBlaze. It’s how they stay ahead of law enforcement and keep track of their contraband, the official added.

    Home invasions, burglary, theft, destruction of private property — and a constant fear that it’s only going to get worse — is something Cochise County border residents live with daily.

    “I say to myself, ‘Rubio, you’re making decisions for me, for my state, for my county, my city when you haven’t even been here – what an insult, what do you know about our border? You know nothing about our border. Yet you’re making those decisions without even speaking to us.’”

    Rubio’s office did not return phone calls seeking comment.

    The Senate’s Gang of Eight bill, drafted this year by a bipartisan group of well-known lawmakers, was supposed to be the answer to the nation’s 11 million plus illegal immigrants. Or at least that’s what these senators hoped. Instead, it has left many lawmakers, local law enforcement officers and American residents living along the nearly 2,000 mile Southwest border scratching their heads.

  66. DOT road sign flashes: ‘Impeach Obama’
    Someone hacks into electronic system to display anti-president message

    Someone in North Carolina is apparently not a fan of President Obama.

    An unknown party hacked into a Department of Transportation road sign over the weekend to change the warning message to read, “Impeach Obama.”

    According to WSOC-TV in Charlotte, the message at the intersection of Unionville-Indian Trail and Ridge roads in Union County was displayed for an unknown amount of time and was corrected last night.

  67. The National Black Republican Association (NBRA) based in Sarasota, FL, headed by Chairman Frances Rice, filed Articles of Impeachment against President Barack Obama with the following language:

    We, black American citizens, in order to free ourselves and our fellow citizens from governmental tyranny, do herewith submit these Articles of Impeachment to Congress for the removal of President Barack H. Obama, aka, Barry Soetoro, from office for his attack on liberty and commission of egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.
