Obamacare Unconstitutional

"because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void."

Obama to Imitate Mubarak's Internet Policy

The legislation for the Internet, which would grant Obama the powers to seize control of and even shut down the internet as in the case of Mubarak's Egypt, would soon be reintroduced to a senate committee.

One of Australia's top communications experts, University of Sydney associate professor Bjorn Landfeldt, had previously railed against the idea, saying shutting down the internet would "inflict an enormous damage on the entire world".

He said it would be like giving a single country "the right to poison the atmosphere, or poison the ocean".

Update: Seattle Activist Wins Case Against TSA

Phil Mocek of Seattle was told by TSA officers and police at the Albuquerque Airport on November 15, 2009, that he did not have the right to use a video camera in a public space outside a TSA zone. He was also told that when officers asked him for ID, he must comply or the police will be called. Mocek was arrested for disorderly conduct and concealing his identity.

Mocek is a software developer and civil liberties advocate. Mocek’s case marks the first time anyone has ever challenged the TSA’s authority to question and detain travelers.

The jury returned not guilty verdicts for charges that included concealing his identity, refusing to obey a lawful order, trespassing, and disorderly conduct.

TSA checkpoint staff have no police powers, and that contrary to TSA claims, passengers have the right to fly without providing ID, and passengers are free to video record checkpoints as long as images on screening monitors aren't captured.

Photography is not a crime. You have the right to fly without ID, and to photograph, film, and record what happens.

Obama, Like Carter, Loses Turkey, Lebanon, and Egypt

The street revolts in Tunisia and Egypt show that the United States can do very little to save its friends from the wrath of their citizens.

Obama sat on the fence and exercised caution. He neither embraced despised leaders nor evangelized for political freedom, for fear of undermining stability.

Obama's miscalculation arose from his misguided and naive comments in his Cairo speech.

Obama began his presidency with trips to Turkey, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and in speeches in Ankara and Cairo tried to forge new ties between the United States and the Muslim world. His message to Muslims was "I am one of you," and he backed it by quoting from the Koran.

His radical new orientation, in breaking with Bush's policies, was announced early on at Cairo (my brackets) [University].

Obama mistakenly believed that the main problem of the Middle East was the existence of Israel.

The absence of human rights issues from U.S. policy vis-a-vis Arab states drew muted, but harsh criticism.

Detroit Police: Attack Video

Detroit Police: 6th Precinct Attack Video

DETROIT (Tell Us Det) - Video footage released shows the shooting rampage at Detroit's 6th Precinct last Sunday that left four police officers wounded and the gunman dead.

Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee released the 68-second clip to the media Friday afternoon after receiving numerous requests from media outlets. The Chief said he was releasing the footage at this time, now that the police have had the chance to view and evaluate it.

Police say 38-year-old Lamar D. Moore entered the precinct Sunday afternoon and opened fire on officers before he was killed in return fire. All four officers survived the attack.

A 68-second video released by Detroit police Friday shows a gunman striding into one of the city's precinct stations, spraying volleys from a shotgun at surprised officers before being fatally wounded within inches of three of his victims. (Jan. 28)

Rutgers bars Jews from anti-Zionist gathering

Channel 12 news clip about the controversy surrounding a pro-Palestine fundraiser at Rutgers University.

A Libyan Jew's Testimony

Public event suddenly closed to all but supporters by campus police.

"In the midst of a year full of virulent anti-Israel campus events, this Saturday Rutgers University may witness the most objectionable event yet. Saturday night January 29, in the Douglass Campus Center, a Rutgers student group, BAKA, will host an event titled "Never Again for Anyone" in collaboration with American Muslims for Palestine, The International Anti-Zionist Jewish Network, and The Middle East Children's Alliance. This program is designed to coincide with the United Nations' sanctioned International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day created to remember and honor the victims of the Holocaust. Instead, the focus will be on "the on-going ethnic cleansing of Palestine," comparing Israel to Nazi Germany.

By invoking the Nazi genocide, this event both defames the Jewish state and trivializes the systematic murder of 11 million people in the Holocaust, including six million Jews. While Rutgers Hillel respects the right to free speech, the comparison of Israeli acts of self defense to the gas chambers of Auschwitz is morally repulsive and has no place on the campus of our State University."

Officer: Sami Jitan

"BAKA - Students United for Middle Eastern Justice is an officially recognized student organization at Rutgers University New Brunswick concerned with social, political, cultural, and human rights issues throughout the greater Middle East.

Our mission is to shed light on injustices currently taking place in the Middle East, as well as empower students to elucidate truths and eradicate such injustices. BAKA is dedicated to raising awareness through education by the means of guest speakers, forums for uncensored discussion, and various forms of artistic expression. We seek to provide a politically active voice for the diverse and marginalized Middle Eastern communities on campus.

However, we do not limit our leadership or membership to these communities; we view the struggles in the Middle East as issues of concern to all peoples, irrespective of race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc. We seek to work with other groups, within and outside Rutgers, as a means of promoting our positive mission."

Clinton repeatedly asked to back, or oppose President Mubarak, but side-stepped every opportunity to do either

Egypt protests: Hillary Clinton urges 'orderly transition'

Clinton stressed that the U.S. had been "on the side of the people" as it had been for more than 30 years of cooperation with Cairo while advocating greater democratic and civil rights. "We're not advocating any specific outcome," she said. The claim is of course patently false. We propped up a pro-Western dictator and now when diplomacy and the moral influence of the U.S. could bear weight the Obama regime is flummoxed into inaction and indecision.

The U.S. should hold out the annual $1.3 billion in military aid sent to Cairo as a means of influencing the outcome of the crisis. Yet, the Obama regime is sending mixed signals, as is its wont, to hedge its bets and indicative of how unclear its policy is in regards to Egypt. While straddling the fence, as if the $1.3 billion in aid is insignificant, Obama is missing a prime opportunity to positively influence the outcome.

All that military aid in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood would be a game changer. Obama invited the Muslim Brotherhood to his infamous “speech to the ummah” in June of 2009.

In addition, he is bearing the fruit of his inattention to Iraq and the possibility that fuel supplies could be transported unhindered, and the possibility of a free, democratic, and representative government in a Muslim-majority nation.

Lastly, in 2009, Obama's silence about the brutal, murderous repression of its people by the Iranian mullahcracy amount to his tacit support of that offensive, and spoke volumes. Obama became part of the problem, not part of the solution. He gave religious barbarism the free hand. In response, Iranian protesters had a direct message for America’s president: “You’re Either With Us or With Them.”

If an Islamist regime rises to the fore the Egyptian-Israeli accord will be be set back to square one. The outcome in Egypt has profound implications for the flow of oil and Middle Eastern relations.

Fox rejects Fixed Point's advertisement on 'religious' grounds.

On Super Bowl Sunday, an organization that sponsors debates between Christians and atheists will not be given the opportunity it planned to spark a nationwide discussion on Jesus Christ, for Fox Broadcasting Company has rejected its commercial featuring John 3:16.

Fox spokesman Louis D'Ermilio further issued a statement explaining, "As a matter of company policy, Fox Broadcasting Company does not accept advertising from religious organizations for the purpose of advancing particular beliefs or practices. The Fixed Point Foundation was provided with our guidelines prior to their submission of storyboards for our review. Upon examination, the advertising submitted clearly delivers a religious message and as a result has been rejected."

Fixed Point released a statement criticizing Fox's decision: "It seems one can advertise just about anything else. Few movie trailers are deemed too violent or beer commercials too sexual for prime time. But religious messages, particularly Christian ones, well, that's just too controversial."

Fixed Point features videos with issues of serious discussion regarding religion and culture.

Jon Jepson: I have a true or false question for you. In 1989, you helped Mick Jones of Foreigner on his only solo album, co-writing the single "Just Wanna Hold" with Mick, and one "M. Phillips". Rumour has it "M. Phillips" is a pseudonym for Mick Jagger, whose middle name is Phillip.

Ian Hunter: It's true. Mick Jones played Mick Jagger a riff and Jagger sang some falsetto over this main riff. Mick Jones then added a lot of stuff on it, and got in a total state of confusion with it, and lost his direction. I got it back on track, and sat behind the board while he was doing the vocals. Not a bad song. He's better at singing ballads than singing rock. It was okay.

Update: Wilmington, DE, John Wheeler, Mysterious Death

Medical examiner: Homicide victim John Wheeler died of 'blunt force trauma.'

Within hours of the grisly New Year’s Eve discovery, state pathologists had ruled that the 66-year-old New Castle resident was a homicide victim, but until today authorities had been mum on the cause of his death -- an unusual posture in Delaware, where such information is usually released promptly.

Hal G. Brown, deputy director of the medical examiner’s office, said he did not know what medications or chemicals, if any, were in Wheeler’s system, but said the death certificate makes it clear that toxicology “didn’t play a role’’ in Wheeler’s death.

Obama Promotes Islamist Youth in Egypt

A secret US document discloses support for Islamist youth protesters which implicates Obama and the United States government with supporting the unrest occurring in Egypt. The British newspaper the Telegraph reports that Egypt protested against the U.S.'s secret backing for rebel leaders behind the uprising. It looks like the way this story will be spun is to suggest that Obama advocated democracy, human rights, and they were privately pushing Mubarak towards reform. The Iranians are closer to the mark. Iran correctly sees the rise of Islamic hard-liners. Usually by playing both sides, as much chaos and confusion can be created. The Islamists received support from Obama's regime, yet, Mubarak's repression is marked with "Made in USA" teargas.

Finally, it should be noted that the secret State Department document expresses skepticism whether the revolutionaries truly have the support of significant numbers of Egyptians against Mubarak.

The Alliance of Youth Movements Summit began with a December 2008 summit in New York City to identify, convene, and engage 21st century movements online. The United States Department of State partnered with Facebook, Howcast, MTV, Google, YouTube, AT&T, JetBlue, Gen-Next, Access 360 Media, and Columbia Law School to launch a global network and protect the efforts of young people to mobilize. Speakers at the 2008 summit included actress Whoopi Goldberg, Facebook Co-Founder Dustin Moskovitz, The Obama Campaign’s New Media Team, and then-current Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs of the United States James K. Glassman.

In March 2009 U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced and endorsed the Second Alliance for Youth Movements Summit, held in Mexico City. Young delegates were described by Secretary Clinton as “the vanguard of a rising generation of citizen activists."

I oppose the involvement of the U.S. State Department and Obama's partisan political arm promoting Islamic youth movements. The leaked documents show the extent to which the U.S. was offering support to Islamic activists in Egypt while publicly praising Mubarak as an important ally in the Middle East. After Obama's regime came to power in late 2008, in a secret diplomatic dispatch, sent on December 30 2008, Margaret Scobey, the US Ambassador to Cairo, recorded that opposition groups had allegedly drawn up secret plans for “regime change” to take place before elections, scheduled for September this year. The documents showed that the activist had been approached by US diplomats and received extensive support for his Islamist campaign from officials in Washington. The documents released by WikiLeaks reveal US Embassy officials were in regular contact with the activist throughout 2008 and 2009, considering him one of their most reliable sources for information.

The Egyptian youth leader further claimed in the secret document that several opposition forces -- including "the Wafd, Nasserite, Karama and Tagammu parties, and the Muslim Brotherhood, Kifaya, and Revolutionary Socialist movements -- have agreed to support an unwritten plan for a transition" in Egypt.

The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist transnational movement and the largest political opposition organization in many Arab states.

Political parties in Egypt are dominated by the one-party rule of Mubarak's National Democratic Party.

The Revolutionary Socialists are international communists.

The Wafd party is a nationalist group. Cf. and

The Nasserites are an Arab nationalist political ideology based on the thinking of the former Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser. It was a major influence on pan-Arab politics in the 1950s and 1960s, and continues to have significant resonance throughout the Arab World to this day. It also metamorphosed into other nationalist movements during the 1970s. However, the scale of the Arab defeat in the Six Day War of 1967 severely damaged the standing of Nasser, and the ideology associated with him. Nasser himself died in 1970, and certain important tenets of Nasserism were revised or abandoned totally by his successor as Egyptian President, Anwar El-Sadat. Cf. and

I don’t think that I have a very high regard for politicians, I have a high regard for businessmen and for people who work, and not for people who abuse the system continuously. And in comparison to other politicians, I think he came in on a platform as a president that would want to change the government in Washington, and actually he’s made it worse… We foreigners, we just laugh at someone like Mr. Obama. I was very critical of Mr. Bush, but at least he had one line and he stuck to that line, and at least he set out to do a thing and he was relatively straight on the thing that he did. He may have been wrong, but at least he didn’t change his mind continuously, and didn’t prostitute himself.”

The Russians Lecture the Americans: Private Sector, Not Gov't the Solution

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on 25 January 2011, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said that the most effective way to resolve a severe economic crisis is through the Private Sector - not big government:

"Simple and often populist solutions, in ninety cases out of one hundred, are wrong, or prove to be wrong, or perhaps even prove to be worst out of all the possible options. A vivid case in point is a tendency of trying to resolve economic problems through nationalization, including the nationalization of financial institutions.

"In the [recent era and] period of financial crisis, many states paused to think about that, and many states took that option, including states with well developed Liberal economies. Our economy is not developed well enough - I'm referring to the Russian economy - but we have exercised restraint, and we did not resort to that option. And I believe that we were right in doing that.

"I believe that, in most cases, crisis can be resolved through the efforts of private sectors, and, in the long term perspective, this is the most effective way of dealing with things."

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev

"Only government can break the cycle that are crippling our economy. The federal government is the only entity left with the resources to jolt our economy back into life. It is only government that can break the vicious cycle."

Obama - 2009

No Sharia Law

Obama Plagiarizes SOTU

Obama's State of the Union Was Tantamount to Plagiarism

Early in his address, Obama said that he wanted the nation he leads to be a "light to the world." The last president who set such a mission for the nation he led, and in those exact words, was Woodrow Wilson.

Obama’s concept of the “American family” may well have had its origins in the first State of the State address New York Governor Mario Cuomo delivered in 1983. Cuomo proclaimed the state of New York as a “family.” He also talked about multiple partnerships, both public and private.

Margaret Thatcher coined a phrase Obama made his own in his second State of the Union address. Thatcher told her American audience that "no other nation has been built upon an idea." In a slightly revised form, Obama, in his second State of the Union address, all but repeated it, using additional words.

The most famous quote from the plagiarized statement is the Sputnik moment: Obama's Not the First to Use 'Sputnik Moment.'

It’s a theme that Obama has toyed with on and off for some time, and it’s one that other pols—including Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney--have used for several years as well.

Reagan described “ordinary heroes,” after all, it was Reagan who began the practice of inviting citizens who had done extraordinary things to sit beside the first lady in the House gallery as the president recited their achievements. It was also Reagan who reminded his listeners that the greatness of America emerged not from the hand of government, but through the entrepreneurial spirit of the American people.

Obama said, "I know there isn’t a person here who would trade places with any other nation on Earth." Leaving aside the faulty grammar (people change places with people, not with nations), the poaching from John F. Kennedy's immortal inaugural address was obvious. ("I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation.") That Obama could utter almost identical words days after paying tribute to Kennedy on the 50th anniversary of the delivery of that famous speech and not making reference to it suggests a self-absorption rare even among presidents.

Most pointedly, the low point of Obama’s speech came when he brought back government re-organization from the ash heap of failed efforts of previous presidents who sought to save money without inflicting pain on a public that had grown accustomed to government largesse. This one, like all that talk about all those green energy jobs that lay before us, had fallen out of the presidential repertoire with retirement of Jimmy Carter. Obama might have had the decency to have Carter on hand to witness the moment. He will have another chance should he, when he delivers his budget, bring back that other Carter flop from yesteryear, “zero based budgeting.”

Even Obama’s feigned attempt at humor had an antecedent in the remarks of a predecessor who spun better yarns than this guy. Obama informed his listeners that salmon comes under the jurisdiction of one department when swimming in fresh water and under another when swimming in salt water. He rhetorically inquired what happened to the fish when “smoked.”

Franklin Roosevelt wrote to an adviser in which he complained that some bears were the property of the Interior Department, while others belonged the National Parks System. FDR, tongue in cheek, warned of a pending custody battle over cubs that emerged from illicit unions of bears crossing departmental jurisdictions.

The teleprompter rules; Obama reads whatever is on the screen. There is no thinking behind the words.

Santorum ‘Absolutely Right’ to Wonder How Obama Could Support Abortion

Pastor Clenard H. Childress Jr., founder of the Black Web site, said he agreed with Santorum.

“Rick Santorum is absolutely right,” Childress, the Northeast regional director the Life Education and Resource Network in Montclair, N.J., told

“It’s very interesting that the ‘Letter from a Birmingham Jail’ was referenced,” Childress said. “In that same letter, Martin Luther King references infanticide or child-killing as evil. So what Martin Luther King calls evil, Barack Obama and this administration calls good -- because all of their policies have more or less facilitated the growth or the intrusion of abortion in our community and our legislation a hundred fold.”

A properly staffed, supported, and robust safety organization might well have avoided these faults and thus eliminated the communication failures."

Jews and Muslims in America, Sylviane Anna Diouf, Servants of Allah: African Muslims Enslaved in the Americas

Who would deny the presence of Muslims, both as traders and as slaves? However, this research does not state that the presence of Muslims in America means that somehow Muslims have always had a founding presence in America. They were slaves. In fact, one section of Diouf's book is "Resistance, Revolts, and Returns to Africa," indicating the significant non-participation of Muslims in American life.

On the other hand, in 1654, twenty four unwelcome Jews arrived in Peter Stuyvesant's Dutch colony in New Amsterdam, and were eventually allowed to remain (p. 161, The Course of Modern Jewish History, Howard M. Sachar). The presence of a Jewish community pre-dated the founding of America but the claim that somehow Muslim presence means the existence of a Muslim community, or that Muslims are part and parcel of Revolutionary America is simply a fairy tale. Thereafter, both in New England and in the South a Jewish community existed, to the extent that Sachar can state: "On the eve of the Revolution, the American Jewish community was comparatively secure" (p. 162).

Most of purported texts in favor of Islam in America are of much later date than Islamists claim, are confined to insignificant numbers of the population, or do not support their sketchy and fragmentary proof-texts of evidence.

To wit, there is a credible scholarly account for one 19th Century figure.

Prominent American Muslim scholar Shaykh Umar Abd-Allah examines the life of a late nineteenth-century American intellectual and diplomat who converted to Islam.

A key work produces evidence of Muslims among slaves which hardly is documentation of a thriving community. This is akin to claiming that since bananas exist in the United States they must be a native plant.

An analysis of biographies of numerous West African Muslim slaves who lived in the American South between 1730 and 1860. These men and women, who were 15% of the slave population, were the first Muslims in the United States.

Islamic Indoctrination

American Schools but Saudi funding.

US Textbooks: Muslims Discovered America

Saudi-funded textbooks are being used in America's K-12 classrooms.

The Saudi government has donated millions of dollars to Middle East Centers at universities that receive Title VI funding.

The Harvard Middle Eastern Studies Center -- whose recommendations to the Massachusetts Board is one of them. As CBN News reported earlier this year, the Harvard Center received a $20 million donation from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal in 2005. Georgetown University -- another title VI recipient--also received $20 million from the Prince that same year.

It's through these Title VI university centers -- all of them government-sanctioned and taxpayer supported--that Saudi-funded materials find their way into K-12 classrooms.

Chinese Pianist Plays Propaganda, Anti-American Tune at White House

US humiliated in eyes of Chinese by song used to inspire anti-Americanism.

Chinese pianist Lang Lang plays anti-American music at the state dinner concert in the White House on Jan. 19, 2011. (from 6:24, it is a theme song from the well-known movie "Battle of Triangle Hill" about the Korean War, a successful propaganda by the Chinese Communist Party.

“In the eyes of all Chinese, this will not be seen as anything other than a big insult to the U.S.,” says Yang Jingduan, a Chinese psychiatrist now living in Philadelphia who was Deputy Director of science and technology development at the No. 4 Military Medical University in Xi'an in China. “It’s like insulting you in your face and you don’t know it, it’s humiliating.”

Yang sees Lang Lang choosing this tune as an expression of the deeply anti-American propaganda that is constant in China.

“This deeply anti-American chauvinism has been fanned by the CCP for years; Lang Lang is expressing the feelings of this generation of angry young people,” Yang said.

A well-known example of such feelings was seen on Sept. 11, 2001, when Chinese chat rooms were filled with young people celebrating this act of terror as an American defeat.

"Neither the White House nor the Chinese Embassy responded to phone calls requesting comment on this story."

Scenes from the 1956 movie Triangle Hill/ShangGanLing


Scenes from the 1956 movie 'Triangle Hill' (ShangGanLing), which is based on a real battle of Korean War, in 1952. Because the previous US strike, a CPV company posted on the Triangle Hill (the 7th Company of the 135th Reg., 45th Div., 15th Corps of the Chinese Peoples' Volunteers) was forced to give up surface positions and retreated into the bunkers. When US troops were proceeding towards the main hill, Zhongfa Zhang, commander of the company (charactor based on the real commander Jifa Zhang) organized machine guns to beat their flank. The Goryunov gunners had more protection in the battle, but the DP gunners were more exposed to the returning fire and suffered heavy casualties. The young CPV soldiers stood in line ---- silently but solidly, ready to replace and ready to give up their lives. Honor belongs to them.

When Nixon visited China, a photo was taken of him getting off the plane to greet Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai. Nixon has a big smile and extends his hand out to Zhou. Zhou stands with a rigid face and holds his hand close to his body.

The photo was widely used in all of the Chinese media to help support the idea that Nixon’s visit was a victory for China. Chinese schoolchildren were told, “See how long Nixon’s arm is stretched out? That shows the United States is reaching out to us.”

Budget Puzzle: You Fix the Budget

You Fix the Budget

Think you might have good ideas on how to balance the federal budget? Well, now’s your chance to solve it! With this budget simulation from The New York Times, you can peruse a menu of possibilities for cutting spending or raising taxes. As you select each item, the interactive feature shows how much money will be saved in both short-term and long-term forecasts.

The idea is pretty simple: read each issue along with its brief description underneath, and if you think, “yeah, let’s cut that,” check the box. When an item is selected, the gray boxes at the top (each representing $1 billion) will turn to blue. The goal is to cut enough spending and/or raise enough taxes to balance the federal budget by both 2015 and 2030.

Today, you’re in charge of the nation’s finances. Some of your options have more short-term savings and some have more long-term savings. When you have closed the budget gaps for both 2015 and 2030, you are done. Make your own plan, then share it online.

Ron Paul Questions Why Obama Daughters Haven’t Taken Swine Flu Vaccine

Council on Foreign Relations Laughs and Lies at People

A recording of a recent Council On Foreign Relations symposium reveals attendees laughing while discussing ways to create panic and force the public to take the swine flu vaccine. There has been mass resistance that has arisen due to questions over it’s safety.

The recording dates from October 16 when the CFR held a Symposium in New York entitled Pandemic Influenza: Science, Economics, and Foreign Policy. The transcript reveals that Lone Simonsen, Research Professor and Research Director at the Department of Global Health, George Washington University, suggests creating an artificial scarcity in order to ramp up demand for the vaccine.

“I think what would work better would be to say that there was a shortage and people tend to buy more of something that’s in demand. (Laughter.) We saw that — there was one season where, really, people lined up all night to get a flu shot.”

Simonsen states the point, much to the amusement of the other attendees at the symposium.

Secretary of Education States Education Dummied Down to Elect Politicians

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan charged politicians with “dummy-ing down” state education standards under the No Child Left Behind Act to increase their chances of being re-elected.

“Historically in our country, I think particularly under the current law, No Child Left Behind, lots of states dummied down standards,” said Duncan at the National Action Network’s Martin Luther King, Jr. day prayer breakfast on Monday. “They reduced standards. Why? Wasn’t good for children; wasn’t good for education; wasn’t good for the country -- was good for politicians.”

“It made politicians look good,” he said. “You could dummy down your standards and tell the press and tell the public – if you could tell the public that more students in your state were quote/unquote meeting state standards, that helped you get re-elected. But it did a great disservice to young people.”

DA: West Philadelphia abortion doctor killed 7 babies with scissors

A doctor who gave abortions to minorities, immigrants and poor women in a "house of horrors" clinic was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors, prosecutors said Wednesday.

At a March 1925 international birth control gathering in New York City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the "black" and "yellow" peril. The man was not a Nazi or Klansman; he was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sanger's American Birth Control League (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood.

First time in US since 1824; Judge opined on Natural Born citizen; Concludes Obama not a NBC.

Is this the 1st serious legal challenge to Obama?

Did the Judge meet the same fate as the tampered Passport witness?

Obama recently signed an executive order allowing the Feds to confiscate all 401ks and retirement accounts. A single judge adjudicated that Obama did not have that authority and stopped the confiscation: Federal Judge John Roll. He died in the Tuscon tragedy.

Democrat Senator Tom Harkin’s is conducting hearings on a proposal to confiscate your personal retirement savings.

One Islamist Out, Another Islamist in at Victory Mosque

Imam Rauf has been replaced on the Victory mosque charade by Imam Abdullah Adhami.

Adhami, as Rauf, thinks Sharia Law should replace the American Constitution.

His hero is Siraj Wahhaj!

Who is this who Adhami refers to as his “beloved imam”?

Imam Wahhaj is an unindicted co-conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He was a character witness for the defense in the trial of Omar Abdel-Rahman, “the blind sheik” who is now serving a life sentence for his role in plotting the 1993 WTC bombing.

Wahhaj has made it very clear in all of his sermons that he wants America destroyed and Islam to be built on its ashes.

Adhami is so enchanted with Wahhaj’s hate-filled screeds that he volunteered to design the Al-Taqwa mosque, from where Imam Wahhaj incites his followers with his wrath against the unbelievers.

"Under my plan, electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket . . . . higher prices will be passed on to the consumer."

In a candid moment while running for president, Obama told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle, “under my plan…electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” Last week, the Obama administration moved to make that a reality, using its rule by executive fiat to punish the coal industry. The action comes as Obama is halting offshore oil drilling and threatening one state alone with millions of dollars in lost revenue. His most recent action was “unprecedented,” could kill jobs during a recession, and comes as heating oil and gasoline prices are rising.

Obama’s latest environmentalist imbroglio is his declaration of war on the coal industry. Last week, the EPA revoked the mining permit of Arch Coal’s Spruce No. 1 Mine in Logan County, West Virginia. The EPA granted the permit in 2007. Since then, Arch Coal has complied with all of the agency’s terms and made millions of dollars of investments in the hard-hit Appalachian state.

The EPA reversed itself last week, revoking its validly granted permit and calling into question whether it would honor any of its prior obligations. Its pretext was the company’s use of mountaintop removal mining, which it called “destructive and unsustainable. However, it was known the mine would use this procedure when the EPA granted the permit four years ago.

The mine would have employed 250 people and harvested more than 40 million tons of coal, over 15 years.

West Virginia’s lawmakers are rightly incensed. Newly elected Democratic Senator Joe Manchin’s statement read in part: “According to the EPA, it doesn’t matter if you did everything right, if you followed all of the rules. Why? They just change the rules.”

Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller told President Obama in a letter that his action “needlessly throws other permits into a sea of uncertainty at a time of great economic distress.”

Industry leaders echoed his concern. “Every road project, construction project or mine site that has received valid CWA 404 permits in the past is now in jeopardy of having that permit vetoed or revoked,” said Bryan Brown, executive director of the Foundation for American Coal Energy. The crippling handicap of uncertainty harms our economy, undermines confidence in the government, and keeps industry executives from making additional investments in energy exploration.
