Fun techy stuff: Embedding video ~ By John Kubicek

From Breakdown of America
By John Kubicek September 28th, 2009 It was a delightful day, a dream come true, when I was invited to write for BOA (Breakdown of America). What made it so special for me? It was because the first time I entered the BOA realm, I was amazed by the extraordinary quality of the way the site was laid out, the great columns, and the wonderful mission of the site. Okay, so I’m gushing about being offered the privilege to write here. But, I’ve been nervous about being able to write something that could meet the high quality standards of this great site. To add to my “stage fright” was the fact that I had never posted a blog before when using WordPress. There was an additional complication I had not counted on. I was encountering a problem when trying to include a video in my blog when writing here. I’ve struggled with this situation for about a week. Well, here I am; here is my first post to this blog. I have found the solution, and I can now include videos with my submissions to BOA. That’s important to me, as I like having the capability to illustrate the things that I write about. That is why I was so worried this last week. As I said, I wanted to be able to post something that would be of value to the readers of BOA. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

Dead Census worker: Victim of open borders? ~ By Roger Hedgecock

From WorldNetDaily
Roger Hedgecock By Roger Hedgecock Posted: September 28, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Two weeks ago, Census taker Bill Sparkman died choking, hands and feet bound, hanging naked from a tree in a remote site in Daniel Boone National Forest in Clay County, Ky. Someone had scrawled "fed" on his chest with a felt-tipped pen. Last week, Sparkman's death became fodder for more attacks on "right-wing violence." Bloggers wanted to "send the body to Glenn Beck," and a Time magazine piece speculated that Sparkman was a victim of the culture of another McCain-voting Southern state Now it looks more like Sparkman was yet another victim of illegal drug operations on national forest land, and possibly also a victim of our still open border with Mexico. Taking the Census in our national forests is dangerous business. Law enforcement sources say meth labs and marijuana plantations are "prevalent" in the area of Sparkman's death. Did he stumble across a drug operation in the Daniel Boone National Forest? No one is saying for sure, but the locals believe it. According to the Wall Street Journal, Mexican drug gangs operate marijuana plantations in 61 national forests in 16 states, up from three forests in one state (California) 15 years ago. California has suffered the impacts. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

The secret weapon in America's revolution ~ By Chuck Norris

From WorldNetDaily
Chuck Norris By Chuck Norris Posted: September 28, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 On Sept. 28, 1781, Gen. George Washington led a combined force of 17,000 French and Continental troops upon Yorktown (Virginia) and encircled British Gen. Lord Cornwallis and his regiment of 9,000 British troops. Washington bombarded Cornwallis and crew day and night for three weeks with artillery and cannon fire, until Cornwallis surrendered on Oct. 17, 1781. Negotiations for peace began in 1782, with the Treaty of Paris being eventually signed on Sept. 3, 1783, formally ending the eight years of war and securing America's independence. The key to victory at Yorktown came when, at the mouth of the Chesapeake, the French navy helped to corner Cornwallis and his crew from fleeing by sea, while Marquis de Lafayette, who under Washington led 5,000 American soldiers, blocked Cornwallis' escape by land. Lafayette was only 23 years old at the time. Lafayette was only 16 years old when he joined the Black Musketeers back in France, an elite unit of royal troops that rode black horses. He started fighting in the Revolution in 1777 at only 19, at which time Congress gave him the rank of major general. Two months after the British surrender at Yorktown, Lafayette returned home as a "hero of two worlds." Marquis de Lafayette was one of Gen. George Washington's secret weapons in the American Revolution. Youth are often the key to victory in many revolutions. That's because people often underestimate their potential or perceived contributions. I believe young people will play a critical role in reawakening and returning America again to its founders' vision, ways and principles. It's amazing for us today to think about how much a young Lafayette sacrificed and accomplished for our country as well as his own. We are still inspired by his example of youthful courage and heroism. Many adults would say that type of valor rarely exists anymore. But as I meet and hear from young Americans here and around the world, I beg to differ. Though our society often denigrates the teen years and expects very little from our young people, I believe there exists a latent power in this particular generation that waits to be awakened and reveal its full potential. If we're going to win America's culture wars, we need the younger generations to do it. There is no way around it. We need to reengage with our young people and plug them into America's glorious past so they can build a brighter future. I'm not talking about selling them on a partisan platform but a patriot one (like our founders had). I'm convinced that this is why Ron Paul's candidacy for president grew into a mighty grassroots swell – it tapped into the technologically and socially based Millennials, who possess a strong anti-imperialism and lets-take-care-of-home mentality and passion.

Time to RICO ACORN ~ By Joseph Farah

From WorldNetDaily
Joseph FarahBy Joseph Farah Posted: September 28, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 I've never been fond of the RICO Act of 1970. The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act was supposedly designed to combat organized crime. But it has been misused widely by politicians to go after political enemies. Yet, if there were ever a time and target to use its sweeping powers, the time is now and the target is ACORN. It has been two weeks since the shocking undercover video work of James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles was released to the world. Those videos reveal beyond any shadow of a doubt that ACORN is the very definition of a "corrupt organization." Furthermore, they demonstrated clearly that ACORN officials in several cities are more than willing to get involved in the most heinous kind of criminal activity – up to and including murder and white slavery rings involving the exploitation of helpless underage foreign minors. Nevertheless, since the astonishing sting operations were made public, no charges have been filed against ACORN, though lawsuits against O'Keefe and Giles have been filed by ACORN. Last week, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said any official investigations of ACORN by Congress might distract attention from more important issues – like railroading socialized medicine down the throats of the American people and spending money faster and more recklessly than drunken sailors could ever imagine. Gee, I wonder why? Could it have anything to do with the fact that Reid needs ACORN's fraudulent voter registration program to have a fighting chance for re-election? Larry Lomax, Nevada's Clark County registrar of voters, reported last year he saw "rampant fraud" in the 2,000 to 3,000 registrations ACORN turned in every week. He said 48 percent of them were "clearly fraudulent." For instance, ACORN turned in registrations in Nevada last year the entire starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys. ACORN had hired 59 inmates from a work-release program at a nearby prison, some of whom had been convicted of identity theft crimes. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

Your choice: Get off the couch or socialism ~ By Herman Cain

From WorldNetDaily
Herman Cain By Herman Cain Posted: September 28, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 There's an old saying that there are three kinds of people in the world. There are people who make things happen, people who watch things happen and people who ask what happened. The latter group will wake up in the not-too-distant future and ask what happen to the United States of America if they just sit there. The big government tax-and-spend liberals are happy with this irrefutable government power grab of our liberties, while too many conservatives at heart are just sitting on the couch. And since the mainstream media is not connecting the dots about what is really happening, here are some recent examples: The "Cap & Trade & Tax & Kill" bill was passed in the House of Representatives under the false premise of a global warming crisis. Only eight Republicans voted for this bill, and none of the 211 Democrats read the bill before voting in favor of the bill. The president and the Democrat-controlled Congress are attempting to confiscate total control of our nation's health-care system using often disputed and misleading information, while claiming the end result will not be socialized medicine. This claim has been repeatedly shown to be false by dozens of organizations and hundreds of writers. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus attempted to silence the private insurance company Humana Inc. for daring to criticize one part of his proposed health-care bill (see related video below). (See Baucus Bludgeons Humana). This is both an abuse of power through intimidation and a violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

Obama's 'Final Solution' for Israel ~ By Ellis Washington

From WorldNetDaily
Ellis Washington By Ellis Washington Posted: September 26, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009
President Obama gave the worst anti-Israel speech of any American president I can remember. ~ John Bolton, Former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. The speech was good and positive for Israel and for moving the peace process forward. ~ Benjamin Netanyahu, prime minister of Israel
How can Bolton and Netanyahu, two seemingly rational, educated and intellectual men hear President Obama's U.N. speech Wednesday and come to such diametrical opposite conclusions? Both men proudly claim that they are conservatives; both men claim that they believe in a strong, independent, defensible Israel with an indivisible capital at Jerusalem. Answer: One man is a statesman like Sir Winston Churchill; the other is a politician, an appeaser like Neville Chamberlain. Obama's speech was delivered with the dispassionate indifference of a man who was handed a speech others wrote for him and loaded into his teleprompter for him to read like a robot, yet the devil is always in the details. Here are some of the highlights of Obama's U.N. speech:
The time has come to relaunch negotiations – without preconditions – that address the permanent-status issues: security for Israelis and Palestinians; borders, refugees and Jerusalem. …
This paragraph could just as easily been written by Col. Moammar Gadhafi who ranted and raved for 100 minutes before the U.N. assembly and affectionately called President Obama "my brother." Obama's U.N. speech could have been written by a whole host of enemies of Israel – Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinians; Khaled Mashal, the Gaza leader of the terrorist organization Hamas; Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah terrorist group occupying Lebanon. What does Obama mean by "the time has come to relaunch negotiations"? This guy is such a narcissist that he thinks whenever he does something, like trying to broker a peace deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians, that he is the first leader to attempt it. Every U.S. president since Harry Truman in the late 1940s have in one way or another tried and failed to "relaunch" peace in the Middle East. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

All the king's men … and women ~ By Henry Lamb

From WorldNetDaily
Henry LambBy Henry Lamb Posted: September 26, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Birds of a feather flock together. In the years that followed the Magna Carta, most of the world rejected the notion that kings rule by divine right. Obama acts as if he still subscribes to this theory, and as if he is the king. It must have been by a perceived divine right that Obama named Steve Rattner to be car czar to oversee the government takeover of Chrysler and General Motors; there is certainly no authority in the Constitution for the president to take such action. Rattner, with the blessing of king Obama, set out to punish his king's opponents and reward his king's supporters. Of the 789 Chrysler dealers closed by Rattner, 788 had contributed exclusively to Republican candidates. Moreover, not one of a string of Chrysler dealerships owned by Obama supporters Robert Johnson and Mack McClarty was closed, but virtually all of the dealerships that competed with the Johnson-McClarty chain were closed. Chrysler president Jim Press said: "It really wasn't Chrysler's decision." Rattner resigned July 13 in the face of a multi-million dollar pay-for-play scandal in New York. Another of the king's men, Van Jones, bit the dust when the public learned that he was a self-proclaimed communist who signed a petition calling for the investigation of the Bush administration for complicity in the 9/11 tragedy. These views were perfectly all right with the king, whose chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, said, "… we've been watching him as long as he's been active. …" Jones' radical ideas were fine with the king, until the public expressed its dissatisfaction.

This week on TheREALjohnny2k - 9/20 to 9/26/09

By John Kubicek I'll have to take a little more of your time this week, as I was able to put up eight videos on youtube in the last seven days, all which are very informative. Not only that, but I also want you to see a couple of my "Favorites" that I came across since last Sunday. The very first video that you'll see below has set the general theme for this last week: We the People want to be heard, the government needs to listen to us, and we aren't going to take it too well when the government wants to silence us when we dissent. Just remember, WE ARE THE MOB! Now get to work, there's a lot to read and watch below! September 20, 2009 - Senator, you've been tweeted. Are you listening? This isn't like the old days, Senator. There is the internet, and now, the social media such as twitter, facebook, myspace, digg, blogs, and anywhere else the word gets out. You can no longer depend on the local newspapers to discern which stories actually make it to print. And, oh gosh, the newspapers aren't doing all that well, either. The "Sheople" are opening up to the internet, and they find out things that may not have been easy for them to find out before. It must have been a coincidence this morning. First, there was the story about the Senators that voted against defunding the corrupt ACORN. Next thing you know, here comes a story about you, Senator, thinking that using twitter would be a way to be able to communicate with your constituents. True, it is, if you were willing to use it that way. But, no, instead, it's a one-way communication; a monologue rather than a dialog. But I understand. Even with just over 500 followers on my twitter account, there is no way I can respond to ALL of them. However, Senator, it should not be all that difficult to learn that you can communicate with a few of us out here in the state that you represent, and that can make a difference. Do not allow yourself to be like the Senators mentioned in the video (I won't mention any names, but you know who you are). Just do some work as our representative, and use your resources to make sure that your constituents KNOW that you are thinking about them. Do you hear me now, Senator? And, by the way, if I could have your ear for a few moments, I'm sure that there are things that I can point out to you that you may want to know what the "sheople" want. And guess what, WE are the MOB, and we want to be heard. Do you hear us now? September 21, 2009 - I'll just call this "OBAMACORN" Unless you were born yesterday and fell off the turnip truck just this morning, you shouldn't need any additional commentary to see what is going on. This isn't even just the tip of the iceberg. The corruption in this administration is rampant. And ACORN is the proof in the pudding. Thank God for the O'Keefe & Giles expose. It opened up the story beyond all belief. It proved Glenn Beck to be correct in all that he had been talking about. Andrew Breitbart and biggovernment.com had a very big part in allowing the expose' to see the light of day. September 22, 2009 - Glenn Beck gives us some schooling about Socialism, Chavez Style When I'm unable to watch Glenn Beck's TV show live, I go to www.glennbeckclips.com and watch the videos which are here at youtube, at glennbeckdailyclips. However, now and then I get to see and record the show in real time. Today was one of those days I had that opportunity. The amount of information that I was able to consume was just out of this world, and I was so happy to be able to record it all. But there was this particular part of the first segment that really says it all. I had to bring this to you in the one chunk that explains what we are up against. I'm taking no chances. I needed you to see this part of "Professor" Beck's first segment. Pay very close attention to today's lessons, class! Hey, WAKE UP! PAY ATTENTION!! September 23, 2009 - Govt. to Humana: Shhhhh! You're not allowed to tell the old folks! A gag order from the U.S. Government, telling Humana that they will be fined if they continue to inform their mailing list of what is going on with ALL of the health care bills when it comes to their health care? As far as Obama's minions are concerned, the older people should not become aware of what their plans will do to Medicare, particularly Medicare Advantage... It is bad enough what is being done to those programs, and it is going to be a huge catastrophe to the health care of those that are no longer able to work. But the real shame is that discussion of the subject was silenced by the government. For obvious reasons, we must not tell others about this video, either. They may come down on us, too, should we openly talk about this subject here online... September 24, 2009 - More about the Humana gag order Peter Johnson, Jr. explains more about the government's gag order against Humana (besides it being against the 1st Amendment). September 24, 2009 - Michelle Malkin tells us about the kick backs and conflict of interest of AARP Yep, just another organization with ties to people in the Obama administration. You have to think that more expose's of AARP will be coming soon, thanks to Michelle Malkin for detailing this so far. September 25, 2009 - This is CHANGE that we HOPE he isn't wrong about Without the aid of high-tech special effects, I used some images that should get people to think. Does the change in the plans for the missiles in the Czech Republic and Poland make you just a little nervous? Are you aware that Obama went with what Russia was wanting us to do? Of course, that should not bother you, right? I'm just sayin' .... It was just announced that it was discovered that Iran had a nuclear processing plant that we were previously not aware of. Hey, no problem. If President Barack Obama said anything at the U.N. and the G-20 summit that made you nervous, just don't worry about it. We'll disarm anyway. Just don't worry. Our Dear Leader has it all under control! The One needs your support, especially if you are a grade-school class room. You must, and you will, trust the King... You will be taken care of if you play your cards right. Just write crazy stuff in text books and you can be a czar, too! September 26, 2009 - Huckabee talks about the Pittsburgh G20 protests - The Criminals vs Capitalism Here is how you connect the dots: The leftists go to protest against the G-20 because they want to defeat Capitalism. Every time you see these people protesting, it is usually violent. Mike Huckabee connected them to groups that actually pay "organizers" to show up at these protests; they are professional protesters. But in the meantime, the Democrats - those on the left - are calling the tea parties, town hall meeting attendees, and the 9/12 rally in Washington, D.C., "astroturf," a manufactured uprising. So, who is the real "astroturf"? So, who are the ones that are violent? And who are the ones that actually get any media coverage? Mike Huckabee and Clayton Morris have this one nailed. From my FAVORITES for the week: September 25, 2009 - G20 2009: Police Attack Students at University of Pittsburgh Video and description courtesy of snafupunk Police used teargas pepper spray and rubber bullets against University of Pittsburgh students during the Pittsburgh G20 Summit. Many of the students were not part of any demonstration but bystanders, curious to find a mass of armed riot police on their campus.

Prepared to be wrong ~ By Patrice Lewis

From WorldNetDaily
Patrice Lewis By Patrice Lewis Posted: September 26, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 In Greek mythology, Cassandra was the daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba. Apollo thought her beautiful, so he granted her the gift of prophecy. But Cassandra annoyed the god by not returning his love, so Apollo put a curse on Cassandra that no one would believe her predictions. Cassandra could see dire events in the future, but no one believed her warnings. A curse indeed. Lately I've sympathized a lot with Cassandra. Back in 1999, we took Y2K seriously. With an infant and a toddler depending on us, we didn't want to take any chances. When Y2K fizzed, we received a modest amount of heckling from smug acquaintances who had snickered at our extensive preparations. "Don't you feel dumb?" was the general sentiment. "Of course not," we replied. "We were prepared to be wrong. Were you?" What we meant by this was, if Y2K turned out to be nothing, then we had a whole bunch of useful stuff as well as a lot of knowledge that would remain long after the stuff was gone. Shrug. But our skeptical friends were not prepared to be wrong. If Y2K had turned out to be a serious disruption in our society, they would be left with no power, no water, no food and (most importantly) no knowledge. They would be helpless and vulnerable. Fast forward 10 years. Recently a neighbor reported hearing a serious, unfunny interview with actor/economist Ben Stein who predicted that all hell might break loose within about six months. I didn't hear Stein's interview so I can't attest to its accuracy, but somehow it doesn't surprise me. Frankly it rings a lot truer than Ben Bernanke's soothing assurances that the recession is over.

False alarms ~ By Pat Boone

From WorldNetDaily
Pat Boone By Pat Boone Posted: September 26, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Remember "Y2K"? The growing angst, eventually near panic, the predictions that at the stroke of midnight, 1999, [actually, Pat, that would have been Jan. 1, 2000 at midnight], every computer and digital device in the world would self-destruct? Like an episode of "Mission Impossible"! We caught the fever at our house. We built two structures out back on concrete foundations, one for storable food and water and canned heat and batteries – and the other for a propane-powered generator that would kick on when city power failed, providing refrigeration and heat for ourselves, and some we could share with neighbors. Y2K came and went, without so much as a flicker. Everything kept working just as it had the day before, and a lot of us felt pretty foolish. We long ago let spiders and ants feast on the foodstuff, and though I dutifully went out and started the generator once in a while for several years, it finally got bored and died. And now, we Americans are being deluged with frantic propaganda about two other imminent dangers – a health care system that is so inadequate and expensive that it threatens to bankrupt the nation, and a global-warming climate change that will turn the whole world into a Mad Max hell. The proponents of drastic measures to avoid these cataclysmic disasters, including our current administration, are virtually screaming the modern equivalent of "THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!" And as they do, they urgently propose big-government takeovers as the only possible solution to both alarms. Notice it's not conservative, free-enterprise leaders and thinkers who are making these proposals – it's folks who already favor big government as the answer to everything, and they feel they've found the way to enforce that at last. I'm just one guy, but I do a lot of thinking, and I have loved this country and the way we normally do things for a long time. I really get nervous, even agitated, when I feel our citizenry is being steamrolled, even bamboozled, into precipitous and likely counterproductive actions. I "got took" by the Y2K snake oil salesmen, and I don't want us to be stampeded into foolish behavior again. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

Washington Post discovers America ~ By Joseph Farah

From WorldNetDaily
Joseph FarahBy Joseph Farah Posted: September 26, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 My phones have been unusually busy lately with calls from major media. It started just in the last week or so. It's not that major media didn't reference me and my news organization frequently. It's just that previously they didn't feel the necessity of actually speaking to me before writing or broadcasting. I guess they figured that would be like calling Hitler for his opinion about invading Poland. Anyway, that's all changed. Today, they're calling. Why? Well, I suspect there is something of an awakening taking place in the Old Media. The tea parties, the town halls, the big Washington rally and the major stories they are forced to catch up on have all helped to give them a clue. Some of the top editors and producers are actually telling their reporters it's time plug into other points of view. Take Washington Post Editor Marcus Brauchli, for example. He is openly and publicly worrying "that we are not well-enough informed about conservative issues. It's particularly a problem in a town so dominated by Democrats and the Democratic point of view." He says he is now challenging his reporters and editors to look at what is going on across the political spectrum – "at the extremes, among the rabble rousers, as well as among policymakers." I guess that's why I got a call this week from the Washington Post. I'm only guessing because, at the time of this writing, I haven't returned the call from the reporter yet. Been too busy breaking news to fill in the competition on what's going on. It's bugging the Post that readers are beginning to feel like they can't get the news in a timely way by turning to the paper. There wasn't a word about "green jobs" czar Van Jones until he had been forced to issue two public apologies and was chased from office mainly by the reporting of my little news agency. WND last April broke the first of more than 20 investigative reports that led eventually to his downfall. The Post also did not report the astonishing ACORN undercover video reports by a pair of young journalists until two days after the first one was aired. But not everyone is thrilled with this new sensitivity to actual news broken outside the so-called "mainstream" media gates. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

Cops, deputies warned again about right-wing 'terrorists'

From WorldNetDaily
SPLC alarm: 'Militiamen, white supremacists, anti-Semites, nativists, tax protesters coalescing' Posted: September 25, 2009 ~ 10:10 pm Eastern By Bob Unruh © 2009 WorldNetDaily A private activist organization apparently is picking up where the federal government left off when the Department of Homeland Security issued its "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment" warning that returning veterans and people in a long list of other categories were potential terrorists. Only the new warning, delivered recently to police officers, sheriffs and other law enforcement personnel across the country, is lumping those dedicated to the constitutional principles on which the nation was founded together with crazed killers. The fall 2009 "Intelligence Report" was issued recently by the Southern Poverty Law Center, where officials confirmed to WND it was published specifically for and delivered to law enforcement personnel across the nation. The SPLC did not respond to a WND request for other comment. But the article groups members of various organizations such as Oathkeepers – whose mainly military and law enforcement members pledge to uphold their constitutional duties, including the duty to question and refuse what appear to be illegitimate orders – with a man "said to be interested in joining a militia" who is accused of killing two deputies in Florida.

BREAKING STORY: Media protect 'literary lion' Obama ~ By Jack Cashill

From WorldNetDaily
Jack Cashill By Jack Cashill Posted: September 26, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Although the major mainstream media organs have yet to address the claim in Christopher Andersen's new book, "Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage," that Bill Ayers helped Obama write "Dreams From My Father," the media trench diggers are busily building a firewall. The alleged media watchdog Media Matters claims that the theory had already been discredited. They cited an Oxford professor who performed a "computerized analysis," which indicated it was "very implausible" that Ayers helped Obama. In reality, some well-meaning Republican politicos hoped to contract with Oxford prof Peter Millican to do a computerized analysis before the 2008 election. When they failed to come up with the requested $10,000, Millican ran to the the London Times. He told its editors "how he was drawn into a plot to link the Democrat to a former radical." The London Times obliged Millican with the cheesy headline, "How they tried to tarnish Barack Obama." Bottom line, there was no "computerized analysis," just the politically inspired pique of a goofy Oxford don. For Media Matters, this was enough to discredit Andersen's detailed inside account of how Ayers came to be involved in Obama's otherwise failed effort to finish a book he had started five years earlier. Politics Daily blows off Andersen's revelation in one sentence: "Andersen suggests, with no proof or attribution, that Obama managed to 'submit a manuscript' for his memoir 'thanks to the help from the veteran writer Ayers.'" True, there is no attribution, but the level of detail suggests an inside source who obviously did not want to be named. Andersen would have had to be a total liar and fraud to contrive the story line he did. Andersen's highly successful career as a celebrity journalist argues strongly against such an interpretation. The Washington Independent's David Weigel, who does not appear to have read Andersen's book, feels free to dismiss Andersen's claim because he credits me as a source. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

Pelosi's willful amnesia ~ By Jack Cashill

From WorldNetDaily
Jack Cashill By Jack Cashill Posted: September 25, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Leftist politicians glide through their careers as though there were no Internet, no YouTube, no newspaper archives, no history books, no one worth knowing who does not agree with them. Protected as they are by the media, they feel free to ignore the past as it happened and reconstruct it as it suits the purpose of the moment. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave remarkable witness to this willful amnesia with her hysterical – in both senses of the word – re-imagining of San Francisco in the '70s. "I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw, I saw this myself in the late '70s in San Francisco," said a tearful Pelosi last Friday. "This kind of rhetoric is just, is really frightening, and it created a climate in which we (sic), violence took place." Pelosi was implying that the 1978 murder of Harvey Milk, the gay San Francisco supervisor, was spawned by the kind of right-wing rhetoric one hears at tea parties and the like. In reality, Milk's murder had nothing to do with anything right-wing. Indeed, left-wing violence of all sorts, the worst of it abetted by the Democratic establishment, terrorized the Bay Area from one end of the decade to the other. For starters, Milk's killer was a Democrat, former Supervisor Dan White. In November 1978, the emotionally troubled White abruptly resigned from the Board of Supervisors. On Milk's advice, Mayor George Moscone refused to reinstate White when he petitioned to get back on. White snapped. He shot and killed them both and promptly turned himself in. This was no historic moment. This was routine workplace violence prompted by Milk's double dealing. After an absurdly lenient verdict – only in psycho San Francisco would the "Twinkie" defense have worked – the anti-death penalty coalition organized a protest march. It quickly went south on them. How far south? How about thousands of angry gay men marching down Market Street chanting "Kill Dan White" south – pretty rough rhetoric in anyone's book. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

'Obama needs to come clean about relationship with disgraced organization' Posted: September 25, 2009 ~ 12:45 am Eastern © 2009 WorldNetDaily Obama needs to come clean about relationship with disgraced organizationA public interest law firm has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Housing and Urban Development to obtain records concerning federal grants provided to ACORN. Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, July 17. HUD confirmed receipt of the request but failed to abide by its own extended deadline even after Judicial Watch agreed to limit the scope of the request to only seven states – California, Texas, Washington, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Arkansas and Louisiana. Now, Judicial Watch has announced it filed a lawsuit against HUD Sept. 23 seeking the following records:
  • All documents concerning money given to ACORN and/or any of its affiliates since January 2000.

Sunstein: Force broadcasters to air 'diversity' ads

From WorldNetDaily
Obama chief argues media must not have final say in selection of commercials Posted: September 24, 2009 ~ 12:50 am Eastern By Aaron Klein © 2009 WorldNetDaily Regulatory Czar Cass SunsteinJERUSALEM – The U.S. government should have the right to force broadcast media companies to air commercials that foster a "diversity" of views, argued President Obama's newly confirmed regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein. "If it were necessary to bring about diversity and attention to public matters, a private right of access to the media might even be constitutionally compelled. The notion that access will be a product of the marketplace might well be constitutionally troublesome," wrote Sunstein in his 1993 book "The Partial Constitution." In the book – obtained and reviewed by WND – Sunstein cites hypothetical examples of private groups or individuals attempting to buy advertising time in the broadcast media to promote a certain view only to have their ads rejected by a private media company. "It is fully plausible that the refusal (of the media company), backed up by the law, violates the First Amendment, at least if other outlets are unavailable or far less effective," Sunstein posits in a radical interpretation of the Constitution.

Holdren: Sterilize welfare recipients

From WorldNetDaily
Obama boss suggested ways to save planet, said fetus not a person Posted: September 23, 2009 ~ 7:56 pm Eastern By Jerome R. Corsi © 2009 WorldNetDaily Obama science czar John HoldrenObama science czar John Holdren stated in a college textbook that compulsory, government-mandated "green abortions" would be a constitutionally acceptable way to control population growth and prevent ecological disasters, including global warming, because a fetus was most likely not a "person" under the terms of the 14th Amendment. Holdren further suggested government-mandated population control measures might be inflicted in the United States against welfare recipients, writing on page 840: "There has been considerable talk in some quarters at times of forcibly suppressing reproduction among welfare recipients (perhaps by requiring the use of contraceptives or even by involuntary sterilizations). This may sadly foreshadow what our society might do if the human predicament gets out of hand." (Parenthesis in original text.) As previously reported, WND has obtained a copy of the 1970s college textbook "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment" that Holdren co-authored with Malthusian population alarmist Paul R. Ehrlich and Ehrlich's wife, Ann. The authors argued involuntary birth-control measures, including forced sterilization, may be necessary and morally acceptable under extreme conditions, such as widespread famine brought about by "climate change." Writing on page 839 of the textbook, the authors state: "The common law and drafters of the U.S. Constitution did not consider a fetus a human being. Feticide was not murder in common law because the fetus was not considered to be a human being, and for purposes of the Constitution a fetus is probably not a 'person' within the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment. Thus under the constitution, abortion is apparently not unlawful, although infanticide obviously is." [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

A libertarian at Fox ~ By John Stossel

From WorldNetDaily
John StosselBy John Stossel Posted: September 23, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 When I announced last week that I was leaving ABC for Fox, some readers complained about my "bias." I replied: "Every reporter has political beliefs. The difference is that I am upfront about mine." Look at today's burning issue: President Obama's pledge to redesign 15 percent of the economy. Virtually every reporter calls his health-care plan "reform." But dictionaries define reform as "improvement." So before they present any evidence, reporters pronounce Obama's plan an improvement. Isn't that bias? The New York Times took its bias to an absurd length. Its Page One story on the big anti-big-government rally in Washington, D.C., referred to "protests that began with an opposition to health care. ..." Apparently, in the Times reporter's and editors' view, opponents of the Obama health-care plan oppose health care itself. (The online article was later changed.) Economic-policy reporters usually present the views of supporters of new regulations as objective and public-spirited. For a contrary view, at best they'll ask a Republican or a representative of the regulated business, who is portrayed as self-serving. (Republicans tend to offer a watered-down version of the Democrats' proposals.) A recent Bloomberg report on President Obama's plans to rewrite financial regulations is typical: "Obama has proposed new regulations overseeing the systemic risk posed by large financial institutions." The reporter quoted White House economic adviser Lawrence Summers in support of the plan. Although there are plenty of reasons to doubt that regulators are competent at judging systemic risk, no skeptical economist was quoted. Readers are led to believe the program is perfectly feasible.

Liberal lies about national health care, Part 5 ~ By Ann Coulter

From WorldNetDaily
Ann Coulter By Ann Coulter Posted: September 23, 2009 ~ 6:06 pm Eastern © 2009 15) Democrats lost Congress in 1994 because President Clinton failed to pass national health care. I'm not sure if this is another example of the left's wishful-thinking method of analysis or if they're seriously trying to trick the Blue Dog Democrats into believing it. But I gather liberals consider the 1994 argument an important point because it was on the front page of the New York Times a few weeks ago in place of a story about Van Jones or ACORN. According to a news story by Jackie Calmes: "In 1994, Democrats' dysfunction over fulfilling a new president's campaign promise contributed to the party's loss of its 40-year dominance of Congress." That's not the way I remember it. The way I remember it, Republicans swept Congress in 1994 not because Clinton failed to nationalize health care, but because he tried to nationalize health care. Hillarycare failed because most Americans didn't want it. (For more on this, see "Obamacare.") Bill Clinton had run as an old-school, moderate Democrat and then, as soon as he got elected, immediately became Che Guevara. (What is it with all our black presidents and these bait-and-switch tactics?) Instead of pursuing "mend it, don't end it" on welfare and no "middle-class tax hike" – as Clinton promised during the campaign – he raised taxes, signed ridiculous gun restrictions into law, enacted "midnight basketball" as the solution to urban crime, announced that he was putting gays in the military and let Hillary run riot over health care. But just to check my recollection, I looked up the Times' own coverage of the 1994 congressional races. Republicans won a landslide election in 1994 based largely on the "Contract With America," which, according to the Times, promised "tax cuts, more military spending and a balanced-budget amendment." Far from complaining about Clinton incompetently failing to pass health care, the Times reported that Republicans were "unabashedly claiming credit for tying Congress up in knots." These claims were immediately followed by ... oh, what was that word again? Now I remember ... LANDSLIDE! [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]

The letter Joe Wilson should write ~ By Larry Elder

From WorldNetDaily
By Larry Elder Posted: September 24, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Dear Madame Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, I apologized to President Obama for my "you lie" outburst during his recent speech. The president immediately accepted my apology. Yet you and nearly all members of your party in the House of Representatives demanded that I make yet another apology from the floor of the House. I refused and then received an admonishment by resolution – passed almost completely down party lines. Now it's your turn, Madame Speaker. I invite you and others in your party to apologize publicly to former President George W. Bush for vicious, personal and frequently race-based attacks. "Bush is an incompetent leader," you said of the then-sitting president. "In fact, he's not a leader. He's a person who has no judgment, no experience and no knowledge of the subjects that he has to decide upon." If a Republican – especially a Southerner – attacked Obama that way, former President Jimmy Carter would call him or her a racist. Apologize, Madame Speaker. Sen. Ted Kennedy died never having apologized. Kennedy accused the Bush administration of lying about the intelligence leading up to the Iraq war. "Week after week after week," Kennedy said from the Senate floor, "we were told lie after lie after lie." Please check the rules for a posthumous resolution of admonition. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]
