Seven former CIA chiefs on Friday urged Obama to halt its investigation of the agency's interrogation methods, predicting the latest inquiry would only foster "an atmosphere of continuous jeopardy."

The retired agency heads — John Deutch, Porter Goss, Michael Hayden, James R. Schlesinger, George Tenet, William Webster and R. James Woolsey — also warned the investigation could hamper the government's intelligence-gathering abilities and deter other nations from working with the United States. The retired agency heads date back to the Carter administration, it is a bi-partisan effort, including both Democratic and Republican administrations.

TEA Party Says Hold the Line, Cap, Cut, and Balance


Tea Party Patriots: Primary Challengers in 2012 Will Be More Frequent -- and More Successful


Speaker of the House John Boehner needs “to go” and be replaced by a “Tea Party Speaker of the House,” Tea Party Nation head Judson Phillips said in a blog post Wednesday.

Criticizing Boehner’s new debt plan that the Congressional Budget Office said Tuesday came up short in spending cuts, Phillips said Boehner (R-Ohio) “has no real interest in solving the problems this country faces. … He worships at the altar of massive spending.”

Facing an Aug. 2 deadline of a possible default unless a deal can be reached, he added: “John Boehner simply wishes to be the manager in chief of the welfare state. His vision of the GOP and the Speakership involves golfing, drinking and not rocking the boat.”

“We need a Tea Party Speaker of the House. We need a Speaker with a vision for the future,” Phillips said, urging members to call the representatives and get Boehner out.

Also on Wednesday, Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin cited a new internal poll of their members that found more than 80 percent were not satisfied with Boehner and the rest of the House Republican leadership, and nearly three-quarters would like a new Speaker of the House.

According to the Hill, Martin said, “Maybe we should see about getting a different Speaker right away.”

In an interview with the Daily Beast, Martin’s co-founder Mark Meckler called Boehner’s plan “an embarrassment” and gave his performance so far as Speaker a “D.”

“He proposes $1.4 trillion in cuts over the next 10 years. Legally, no Congress can bind a future Congress. Anything he promises about what future Congresses will do, they simply can’t make that promise. In the real world, we call that a lie.”

Meckler said lawmakers, including Boehner, should steel themselves for another Tea Party uprising at the polls based on what happens this week:

I can tell you that there are certainly a lot of thoughts out in the Tea Party network across the country about primary-ing people, including freshmen who seem to be going off the rails so early. This week in Ohio, 51 local Tea Party groups wrote a letter to Boehner telling him not to cave on the debt limit. In his own state, he faces significant opposition from a vast majority of the Tea Partiers who are against what he is doing in regard to the debt limit.

“If you want to raise the debt ceiling, prove to us you can make some cuts,” Meckler said to U.S. News and World Report. “Get real. They need to act like adults.”

Jay Carney Draws Press Corps’ Ire During Testy Exchange With Fox Reporter


Press Secretary Jay Carney entered into a testy exchange with new Fox White House reporter Ed Henry on Tuesday afternoon, after Henry pressed Carney on why the president hasn’t submitted his own debt plan, and why he went on primetime TV on Monday to blast some of the proposals out there without submitting one of his own.

Carney clearly wasn’t happy with being challenged, accusing Henry of spewing Republican talking points (a serious charge from a sitting press secretary to a journalist of a major network). But Henry wouldn’t back down, and when he didn’t, Carney got personal, accusing several journalists in the room of skipping out “early” on Friday, and blaming them not being informed.

As soon as the words darted out of Carney’s mouth, a loud chorus of “OOOOOOs” and “OHHHHHs” could be heard throughout the briefing room, and Henry can be seen cracking a smile. But even after that, the back-and-forth continued.

The initiative allowed thousands of weapons to be purchased by "straw buyers" in Arizona and Texas and later "walked" unchecked to drug smugglers in Mexico. At least three of those weapons, including two AK-47 assault rifles, later were found at the site of separate shootings that claimed the lives of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata, who was killed by Rejon Aguilar's Zetas, and U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian A.

Obama to Re-write the 14th Amendment?

With the August 2 deadline just days away from the U.S. running out of money, some wonder if Obama will try to use the 14th Amendment to get the debt ceiling raised without congressional approval.

The 14th Amendment states that "the validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law...shall not be questioned."

Can a president undertake borrowings to undertake expenditures not approved by the Congress? That would, in principle, involve a significant constitutional crisis.

I'd say call his bluff and if he does it, impeach him.

The context of the 14th Amendment is the Civil War and its subsequent debts. The American tradition has never been to have such reckless and self-serving politicians in office. However, this is what we are stuck with, two parties advancing their own political agenda without regard for the Constitution or the American people, much less our posterity. Washington would like to twist the plain and simple meanings of the Constitutional words for their own ends. Its despicable.

Islamists Distance Themselves from Oslo: Why?

Jihadist websites have urged Islamists to refrain from associating themselves with the attacks in Norway, according to statements posted online.

"We appeal to jihadists not to claim the Norway attacks so as not to tighten the noose for comrades who are in that country or other countries," said the site Shumukh al-Islam (the Grandeur of Islam).

The website has in the past carried claims of responsibility from Al-Qaeda and other jihadist groups for attacks in the West, Afghanistan and Somalia.

Who is Altering Oslo Shooter's Facebook Page? Who is Behind It?

Doesn't it appear just a bit strange that, according to the BBC, the shooter set up a Facebook and Twitter account only a few days ago on July 17?

Anders Behring Breivik Facebook Profile A Fake?Oslo Shooter Facebook page is a fake.

Why did a jihad group take credit for the atrocities, and then retract? And who altered the murderer's Facebook page? Yesterday, at the time that his name was released, his Facebook page looked like this:

But shortly thereafter, this screenshot started circulating, of an altered Facebook page on which Breivik identified himself as a Christian and a conservative.

Although the lamestream rarely reports these things, Islamists have long been active in the country.

Muslims and Leftists Rioting in Oslo, Norway - Welcome to Eurabia


Jan 08, 2009 17:08 EST

OSLO, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Oslo police detained at least 27 people on Thursday after pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian demonstrators clashed in one of the worst such outbursts in the Norwegian capital since the 1980s.

Shop windows in the city centre were shattered and police repeatedly used teargas to break up groups of activists demonstrating over Israel's crackdown in the Gaza Strip.

The violence started when about 1,000 pro-Palestinian supporters showed up at a rally sponsored by Norway's largest opposition party in support of Israel. Television pictures showed they burned Israeli flags and threw projectiles at police clad in body armour who separated the two groups.

"This has nothing to do with the situation in Gaza," Johan Fredriksen, chief of staff of the Oslo police, told the website of the daily Aftenposten.

"These people came to the protest with knives, bats and Molotov cocktails," he said, speaking about the pro-Palestinian side.

"You have to go back to the early 1980s to find a similar situation in Norway," Fredriksen said, adding that police were still concerned about security across the city.

Clashes also took place near the Israeli embassy.

Tabloid VG on its website said that Oslo was the site of a "street fight" with groups of men throwing rocks and bottles at police. One police car was trashed and one officer injured.

Before the flare up, some 15,000 people walked through the city centre for a peaceful, torch-lit protest, police said.

Police retaliate with teargas and pinned down the most violent protesters in a corner, leading to the arrest of 100 people.
Some as young as 13 years old.

The rest of the protesters spread out in the capital and thrashed 4 Mcdonald stores, set fire to Christiania cafe and made alot of damage around the city saturday night.

Breakfast at Tiffany's Bowing to Political Correctness?


“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is also scheduled to be shown on August 11th at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy as part of SyFy’s Movies With A View. We say scheduled to be shown because an online petition is calling for the screening to be cancelled due to a character played by Mickey Rooney that Asian American groups find offensive. Rooney was hired to play an over-the-top Asian man and he did.

Watch this commercial for Jello from the 1960s:


Is that offensive and racist?

Or, how about this scene from an episode of “The Flinstones?”


The debate over “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” or any work made in a time when racism or stereotyping was acceptable entertainment is an interesting one. Earlier this year, scholars went back and forth over the newest editions of Mark Twain’s 1884 “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” removing the “N” word and “Injun.”

New York Post writer Lou Lumenick offered some clarity on the topic:

I personally think the screening should go forward, but the film’s outdated racial attitudes need to be acknowledged and discussed in an introduction.

Lumenick’s idea is one that works to preserve the historical integrity of the film, while recognizing the offensive stereotyping.

Let's all take a deep breath and sing along with the Broadway show “Avenue Q” song “Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist.”

Obama Ordered Gun Runner


Just a day after U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., called for Attorney General Eric Holder's removal, alleging a White House connection to the "Project Gunrunner" that allowed weapons to be delivered to Mexican drug lords, confirmation has come that the program originated at the highest levels of the Obama administration.

The link is the $10 million in taxpayer dollars designated to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for Project Gunrunner in Obama's 2009 American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, otherwise known as the Stimulus Bill.

Section 5, Division A, Title II, under the heading of "Office of Justice Programs," says the money is set aside for border regions.

For an additional amount for 'State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance,' $40,000,000, to remain available until September 30, 2014, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to 'Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses' for the ATF Project Gunrunner.

Arrest Jennifer Jade Jones June 28 Quartzsite Arizona Council Meeting


Jennifer "Jade" Jones -- had her elbow injured and was hospitalized during her arrest for disorderly conduct during peaceful statements at a public podium during a town council meeting. Jones had the floor. Police chief Jeff Gilbert (positioned at wall) was directly involved. Many in Quartzsite do not understand why this police chief is not under suspension because Arizona State Dept of Public Safety is already investigating him for criminal accusations by officers in his department. Presiding officer of the meeting (Mayor) could not dissuade police from their mission. Many suspect conspiracy between police chief and council members, other than the mayor.

Jones, who claims she's been previously harassed by police, says recently some officers – including Chief Jeff Gilbert – have been acting more erratically and dangerously, and says he even gave a speech comparing outspoken citizens like herself to Jared Loughner, the gunman who shot Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson on Jan. 8.

What Would Jesus Do? Fracking?

BISHOPS, NUNS AND RABBIS DEBATE GAS FRACKING

More than 3,300 wells have been drilled across Pennsylvania in just the last few years. The boom has raised concerns about the use of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, which injects chemical-laced water to break up the shale and allow natural gas to escape into the shale to push out the minerals. Environmental groups and the Environmental Protection Agency have expressed concerns about how the process impacts water, soil and air quality. But the industry insists it is safe.

An article titled “The Morality of Fracking” appeared in The National Catholic Reporter last month, and the Reform Jewish Voice of New York State endorsed the drilling moratorium there.

Norman Wirzba, a professor of Theology, Ecology, and Rural Life at Duke Divinity School in North Carolina, said he thinks it’s noteworthy that Bickerton, the leader of a large congregation, is speaking out.

The National Religious Partnership for the Environment includes perspectives from Evangelical, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and Interfaith groups.

In some cases, religious groups see gas drilling as a way to support charitable work.

Kathryn Klaber, president of the Marcellus Shale Coalition, a drilling industry group, said she was surprised last year to find that dozens of religious groups had entered into gas drilling leases.

Some religious groups think another way to address the fracking issue is to start at the top, by engaging and pressuring large corporations.

Sister Nora Nash is director of the corporate social responsibility program at the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, which was founded more than 150 years ago.

The North Carolina Council of Churches is working on a statement, and Rabbi Arthur Waskow of Philadelphia’s Shalom Center has written articles critical of fracking.

Sybil Sanchez, director of the New York-based Coalition on Environment and Jewish Life, said her group supports increasing energy independence in ways that also protect the environment, which they see as God’s Creation.

Author of 'Presidential War Powers', Louis Fisher, discusses the impact of President Obama's actions in Libya.

Louis Fisher, a scholar in residence at the Constitution Project who served for 40 years as a constitutional law expert at the Library of Congress, says Americans and members of Congress should understand that President Barack Obama committed a “very grave offense” against the Constitution in taking military action in Libya without congressional authorization.

“I am not going to recommend that the House Judiciary Committee hold impeachment hearings, but I would like members of Congress and the public to say that nothing would be more impeachable than a President who takes the country to war without coming to Congress, who does it unilaterally,” Fisher told CNSNews.com’s Online With Terry Jeffrey.

Illegal Obama "Propped Up" By Congress!


June 11, 2003, Rep. Vic Snyder, D-Ark., brought HJR 59. It was intended to "permit persons who are not natural born citizens of the United States, but who have been citizens of the United States for at least 35 years, to be eligible to hold the offices of president and vice president."

Sept. 3, 2003, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., brought HJR67, which would have done the same as Snyder's, only the requirement to be a citizen was lowered to 20 years.

Feb. 25, 2004, Sen. Don Nickles, R-Okla., brought S.B. 2128 to "try to counter the growing Democrat onslaught aimed at removing the natural born citizen requirement." But it defined NBC as someone who was born in and is subject to the United States," which was not the understanding of the framers of the Constitution.

Sept. 15, 2004, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., brought HJR 104, "to make eligible for the office of president a person who is not a natural born citizen of the United States but has been a United States citizen for at least 20 years."

Jan. 4, 2005, Conyers, D-Mich., HJR2, the same as Rohrabacher's.

Feb. 1, 2005, HJR15, Rohrabacher, to require only 20 years citizenship to be eligible for the office of president.

April 14, 2005, Snyder, HJR42, requiring 35 years' citizenship.

Feb. 28, 2008, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., tried to attach to SB 2678, Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act, an amendment clarifying what "natural-born citizen" includes. Obama and then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., were sponsors.
