"Birtherism would not be a big deal at all, if it weren't for the fact that we have nearly an entire executive branch engaged in the office of running guns to drug cartels in Mexico -- arguably an act of war, starting and perpetuating a war in Libya without congressional consent, "borrowing" billions of funds from the Federal Employees Pension Fund so as not to violate a debt ceiling that is already being violated, running election campaigns out of the White House, not enforcing polling place protection laws from Panther thugs, circumventing fed fund restrictions to abortion clinics, arranging Wall Street payouts to unions for stocks created out of thin air -- and probably more."

Confessions of a Birther Evangelist
By William Lolli
July 30, 2011

I am an information technologist by trade and a Birther evangelist by proclivity.

When discussing or debating the Birther issues with a newbie, in addition to a transfer education in law, the Constitution, the jurisprudencial system, and history, I frequently am a witness to the real-time acting out of the Kübler-Ross behavioral model of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

For the duration of the discussion, the political spectrum orientation of the listener doesn't seem to matter, since the topical reactions and counter-bullet points are always the same.

The debates are never linear, but desultory.  And the satisfaction is in the observation of dominant human nature as it dictates the repetition of behavioral responses to Birther political stimuli.

July 28: Who Placed A $1 Billion Bet In The Bond Market Against The United States?

By Jack Barnes
July 28, 2011

Someone dropped a bomb on the bond market Thursday – a $1 billion Armageddon trade betting the United States will lose its AAA credit rating.
In one moment, an invisible trader placed a single trade that moved the most liquid debt market in the world.

The massive trade wasn't placed in bonds themselves; it was placed in the futures market.
The trade was for block trades of 5,370 10-year Treasury futures executed at 124-03 and 3,100 Treasury bond futures executed at 125-01.
The value of the trade was about $850 million dollars. In simple terms, if that was a direct bond buy, no one would be talking about it.
However, with the use of futures, you have to have margin capacity behind the trade. That means with a single push of a button someone was willing to commit more than $1 billion of real capital to this trade with expectations of a 10-to-1 return ratio.
You only do this if you see an edge.
This means someone is confident that the United States is either going to default or is going to lose its AAA rating. That someone is willing to bet the proverbial farm that U.S. interest rates will be going up.

Shared Sacrifice: How About Reducing Congressional Salaries?

By Tina Korbe
July 29, 2011

For all their hard work to attempt to solve the debt crisis, members of Congress receive pay of 3.4 times the average American worker, according to a new study by Our Generation and the Taxpayers Protection Alliance.

The study also found members of U.S. Congress are among the highest-paid legislators in the world. On average, legislators in other parts of the developed world receive salaries equal to 2.3 times the average wage.

So, how much is 3.4 times the average American worker’s pay? Try $174,000. But a high salary is not the only perk of the job. From the study summary:

Vice Chair, Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama

Hi Patriots. Please meet Tina Sims, a true patriot living in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Tina wrote me the following note.

“I started PICKET ACROSS AMERICA because I am scared. I am a 47 year old female, unemployed for a year and a half. I am so angry I feel like I'm screaming on the inside. I love this great country and feel an overwhelming desire to defend her. I am asking every American Citizen of all political parties to stop what they are doing at 9am on Sept 17th; step outside and hold a picket sign that reads, "CAN YOU HEAR US NOW." The idea is to line the streets of America.”

Upon reading Tina's heartfelt note, I thought, “Her idea of patriots across America holding signs together is nice. However, the media will not cover our protest and it will not effect one bit of legislation in DC. So what would be the point? What difference will it make?”

Then I thought, “It will make a difference to Tina and other fellow patriots. Tina's fear and frustration represents the feelings of millions. By holding a sign outside 9am, Sept.17th, we are sending a message to each other that we are all in this together. We have each others backs in solidarity fighting to save our country.”

In that regard, PICKET ACROSS AMERICA is a brilliant idea; inexpensive and a minimal time investment while sending a powerful message of unity. I LOVE it!

Tea party groups and organizations across America are responding to Tina's call to action. She has made it extremely easy to participate. All you need is a sign.

As I said, the media probably will not care. But, this is not about the media. And, it will not directly effect the craziness going on in Washington DC. PICKET ACROSS AMERICA is about us, We The People, taking a moment to say we support each other.

In my travels attending over 200 tea parties nationwide including Alaska, I am blown away by you, the American people; your love for our great country and willingness to do your part to save her. You're awesome and I love you.

So, I made a sign as Tina requested. September 17th at 9am, I am going to stand on the busiest intersection in my town and display it.

Patriots, please join us. Sign up for Tina's picket line on Facebook at PICKET ACROSS AMERICA.

Our ultimate goal is to end the tyrannous reign of Barack Hussein Obama in 2012. The Obama media is relentless in their efforts to discourage and dishearten us. Staying encouraged, diligent and united in our efforts is crucial to our victory.

Let's exhibit our solidarity. Let's PICKET ACROSS AMERICA.

Rick Perry: Do We Have The Courage To Be Free?

By AWR Hawkins
July 28, 2011

The more I hear people criticize Governor Rick Perry for saying New York’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage was “their business,” the more I want to put a “Perry 2012” bumper sticker on my car. And when that criticism continues, because he also said things like “that is fine with me” and “that is their call,” I actually wonder if we understand freedom at all.

Honestly folks, do we have the courage to be free?

After all, Perry is only saying what he’s been saying for years, and what Thomas Jefferson spelled out in the Kentucky Resolutions (1798). Namely, that states enjoy a sovereignty that allows them to make decisions apart from the federal government and apart from the consensus of other states.

U.K.'s National Health Service Is Now Rationing Operations

By Oliver Wright
The Independent
July 28, 2011

Hip replacements, cataract surgery and tonsil removal are among operations now being rationed in a bid to save the NHS money.

Two-thirds of health trusts in England are rationing treatments for "non-urgent" conditions as part of the drive to reduce costs in the NHS by £20bn over the next four years. One in three primary-care trusts (PCTs) has expanded the list of procedures it will restrict funding to in the past 12 months.
Examples of the rationing now being used include:

Gunrunner: Obama in 2009 Talked About Tracing Guns In Mexico

By Katie Pavlich
July 27, 2011

Yesterday during testimony on Capitol Hill, we heard Former ATF Special Agent in Charge William Newell admit he was in contact with White House National Security staffer Kevin O'Reilly about Operation Fast and Furious as early as September 2010. Newell also admitted that the DHS, IRS, DEA, ATF, ICE and the Obama Justice Department were all heavily involved and were full partners in coming up with the concept and execution of Operation Fast and Furious.

Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama still deny authorizing the lethal program, despite President Obama specifically asking Holder to conduct a complete review of current gun enforcement policies during a joint press conference in Mexico City with Mexico President Felipe Calderon in April 2009. The quote below starts at 1:16 in the video.
“Our focus is to work with Secretary Napolitano, Attorney General Holder, our entire Homeland Security team, ATF, border security, everybody who is involved with this to coordinate with our counterparts in Mexico to significantly ramp up our enforcement of existing laws. In fact, I’ve asked Eric Holder to do a complete review of how our current enforcement operations our working and make sure we are cutting down on the loop holes that are causing some of these drug trafficking problems. Last point I would make, is that there are going to be some opportunities where I think we can build some strong consensus I’ll give you one example and that is the issue of gun tracing, the tracing of bullets and ballistics  and gun information that had been used in major crimes.”


Debt Ceiling: Congressional Republicans, Remember The Alamo!

Debt Ceiling: Congressional Republicans, Remember The Alamo!
By Lloyd Marcus, Proud Unhyphenated American

Some will say, “Lloyd, if your purpose is to inspire Republicans to stand strong in the debt ceiling debate, why on earth would you choose the battle at the Alamo which the good guys, the Texans, lost?”

The battle at the Alamo is the birthplace of Texas liberty. Approximately 250 Texans died fighting for their freedom against the 1500 man Mexican army. The Texans held the Mexicans at bay for 12 days before being massacred on the 13th day.

What I find so inspiring about the battle is the Texans knew they were going to die. And yet, they knew the time had come to draw a line in the sand taking a stand for freedom.

With Bill O'Reilly leading the charge, pundits and Washington elites advise Republicans to surrender to Obama's irresponsible desire to raise the debt ceiling and raise taxes. These smartest guys in the room say, “Obama has the polls and the media on his side. So, why go down in defeat.”

Well I say, the Republicans must not allow fear, skewed polls and an ill-informed public to prevent them from doing what is best for America. The time has come for Republicans to draw a line in the sand; take a stand by fighting the tyranny of out of control, self serving vote manufacturing and insane government spending.

Thank God we have tea party freshmen who are standing on principle and saying “no” to bankrupting the future of generations.

Here is how deep in the hole we are. Let's suppose congress ceased all spending today and began making payments of 100 million dollars per day on our national debt. It would take us 389 years to pay off our national debt. Can you see how adding to our debt would be insane?

And yet, O'Reilly and company advise the Republicans to compromise to save themselves. Such behavior is not character driven leadership. To the Republicans, I say, “Remember the Alamo! Take a stand for freedom!”

Unlike the Texans, I do not believe the Republicans will be massacred. The informational highway has changed dramatically since 1995 when the liberal media successfully blamed the government shutdown on the Republicans.

While I must admit that “Black Barack” Obama and his gang of media roughnecks are a “might powerful”, there's a tough new lawman in town, Sheriff Tea Party.

Folks are still talkin' about how back in November 2010, Sheriff Tea Party and his posse of bloggers, talk show-ers, social network-ers and rally-ers kicked the Obama gang's butt. They pretty much wreckin' to do it again come November 2012.

And can we please lay to rest the lie that America will default on August 2nd if we do not raise the debt ceiling? This is yet another Obama and his gang of media roughnecks scare tactic.

Patriots, our characterless president and his minions will stop at nothing to further their socialistic agenda and destruction of America as we know it. Can you believe that after the Obama gang's despicable attempt to make the tea party and opposition to Obamacare a racial matter, they are now attempting to make opposition to raising our debt about race?

Black political operatives including Congressional Black Caucus member, Shelia Jackson Lee are accusing the Republicans of saying no to raising the debt ceiling because Obama is black. These people have no shame. They are evil.

Obama's characterless tactics of race baiting, blaming Bush, creating hostility towards achievers and commercials showing Republicans pushing granny over a cliff are challenging obstacles to overcome.

A dear long time black friend, Christian minister and mentor has bought the Obama gang's spin hook, line and sinker. After a enjoyable chat about religious matters, he shifted the conversation to Republicans and the debt ceiling.

Suddenly, he became extremely angry. After vilifying Republicans claiming their sole existence is to make the rich richer on the backs of the poor, he concluded his rant saying, “By not raising the debt ceiling, Republicans are playing Russian roulette with the lives of the poor and seniors. If I were God, I would kill them ALL!”

Wow! I was struck by the depths of his passionate hate for Republicans. My friend is an example of the left's successful hate campaign against achievers and Conservatives.

Still, I am extremely confident we will defeat Obama and his media minions in 2012.

Victory will require every patriot remaining focused and vigilant in their efforts. To my fellow believers in Christ, I would ask that you continue praying for our great country; an extraordinary wonderful experiment founded on Christian principles.

As for the Texans massacred at the Alamo, months later, Texas won it's independence at the battle of San Jacinto; their battle cry, “Remember the Alamo!”

Republicans, please hang tough. America's future rests on your shoulders and backbones.

Observations re: Whether Sarah Palin is Running for President

Observations re: Whether Sarah Palin is Running for President

By Glenn Briggs

Why have some candidates already declared their intention to run for the Presidency?

They need to build name recognition so that they are known widely in the country. They need to get their positions on significant issues expressed and known widely so that they convince voters to support them and their positions. They need to express what they would do were they to be elected. They need to get their qualifications listed and accepted. They need to separate themselves from the other candidates so that voters see them as unique and preferable. They need to establish support staff who can help them achieve all these needs.

How much time, effort, staff and money is required to achieve the above “needs” would be different for each candidate. Thus, with these factors variable for each candidate, the timing of entry into the fray is likely to be very different for each candidate, assuming that they are endeavoring to manage their available resources to maximum positive effect.

Now, let's observe these factors vis a vis Sarah Palin.

Her name recognition is already higher than that of any other GOP candidate and, in my view, equal to or higher than that of Barack Obama.

Sarah Palin has been clearly stating her positions on the issues, starting with her actions as Mayor of Wasilla, as Governor of Alaska and as the candidate for Vice President. Example – her acceptance speech to the RNC in 2008 is full of her positions. And since, her Facebook Notes, op-eds, and speeches have clearly made known widely what her positions are on all issues before us as voters.

With the expose of her emails as Governor of Alaska, she has been shown to be extremely qualified as a Chief Executive. Coupled with the truths clearly enunciated by the documentary “The Undefeated”, Sarah Palin's achievements as Mayor and Governor show she's not a Politician as we think of that profession, but is, instead, a Public Servant – with the ideal qualities of a Leader, one who would guide our country back to it's former level of exceptionalism and halt the trend toward Marxism so evident in the current administration.

With all this, Sarah Palin has clearly separated herself from all the other candidates. She has been vetted as no other candidate in modern time. She has been the lone opposition to Obama over the past three years. She has demonstrated enormous courage in the face of vicious attacks on her and her family and significantly, virtually no attacks on her positions on issues.

As for a dedicated support staff, nationwide, there are numerous support groups dedicated to Governor Palin growing rapidly in quality, numbers and political insight burgeoning across the country. No other candidate has that level of grass-roots support organized. It matters not that these support organizations are not directed in their efforts by Sarah Palin. They are committed to her and will immediately swing into powerful open activity the moment she declares. No other candidate has such resources to call into action. Sarah does.

So, where do we come out on all this? Is Sarah Palin running for the Presidency? Emphatically, YES! All these observations show clearly that all her actions over these past three years have been to build on these “needs”, preparing for her formal declaration. Any other inductive conclusion is nothing more than denial of reality. And it is because of all this preparation that she is far out ahead of all the other candidates and thus can “indulge” in the luxury of delaying her formal commitment, giving her “opponents” the opportunity to “stub their toes” through gaffes and attacks on each other, etc. and showing clearly their separation from Sarah (not to their advantage). Make no mistake, it costs money to run a presidential campaign and many of the early candidates will run out as their “needs” are not achieved and their support resources dwindle. Timing of entry into the fray can be extremely critical – too early can exhaust vital resources, too late can result in “too high a hill to climb”. Sarah Palin is faced with neither of these extremes at this point and won't be, as she is an extremely astute player in this game. She will make her moves with the utmost competence. Momentum is vital and Sarah Palin has demonstrated throughout her stewardship career that she is a master at building momentum.

Sarah Palin will win the Presidency in November, 2012.

Romney's Mexican Roots

By Daily Mail Reporter
July 25, 2011

The branches of Mitt Romney's family tree can be seen stretching into Mexico as new light is shed on the presidential contender's roots.
Mr Romney’s great-grandfather Miles Park Romney fled to Mexico's Chihuahua desert in 1885 to escape anti-polygamy laws in the U.S.

He had five wives.

The region, now plagued by a volatile drug war and threats from violent gangsters, is where three dozen of Mitt Romney’s relatives call home.

Romeny's father George was born in Mexico before moving back to the U.S. as a small child..

Pursued by U.S. Marshals following the 1882 crackdown on polygamists, Miles Park Romney set up shop in Mexico with other Mormon settlers.

Birther Summit: The "FogBlow" Initiative

By Dean C. Haskins
The Birther Summit

No, that's not a typo. By now, most of us are fully aware of a group of Obama operatives that congregate at a website forum called "The Fogbow." Dr. Jerome Corsi has been doing a stellar job outing these shills for the Obama White House, and has even suggested that they are part of a sinister White House initiative to run cover for its ineligible occupant by monitoring the internet at all hours of the day and night, searching for any comments made regarding Obama's ineligibility to be president. Once these parasites find any such comments, they start their overt mission of annihilation, using every dirty trick they know. They either recite blatant disinformation by purposely misinterpreting constitutional law and court decisions, or they simply mock and ridicule until the commenters tire of the dialog and just give up.

We've just experienced such an example of their crafty attempts to silence anyone who proclaims the truths about the Ineligible One, as if those truths were water pouring upon their Wicked Witch of the West Wing.

Chilé's Allende' Was Not Murdered: Lying Liberal Propaganda Unravels

Investor's Business Daily
July 21, 2011

History: President Salvador Allende of Chile really did commit suicide in 1973, an inquest concluded on Tuesday. Now will the Left stop saying the U.S. and Chile's army did him in?

Except perhaps for Che Guevara, no one has quite been the heroic totem to the global left than the late Marxist president of Chile, whose death in 1973 made him a martyr to socialism.

Wasserman-Schultz: Liar & Hypocrite Par Excellence

Investor's Business Daily
July 21, 2011

Civility: Republican Allen West is refusing to apologize to fellow Floridian and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for calling her "vile, unprofessional and despicable." His only fault was omitting "liar" and "hypocrite."

The dust-up between the two Florida House members purportedly started when Schultz stood up in the House chamber and, after West left, blasted him for backing Rep. Paul Ryan's Medicare reform.

That prompted West to fire off an email that, in addition to "vile," called her a "coward" and "not a lady."

But the dust-up really began when Schultz led a protest outside West's campaign headquarters last October and depicted the black Army veteran's Tea Party supporters as racist Nazis.

Shocking: Beijing Develops Electromagnetic Pulse Weapons

By Bill Gertz
The Washington Times
July 21, 2011

China's military is developing electromagnetic pulse weapons that Beijing plans to use against U.S. aircraft carriers in any future conflict over Taiwan, according to an intelligence report made public on Thursday.

Portions of a National Ground Intelligence Center study on the lethal effects of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and high-powered microwave (HPM) weapons revealed that the arms are part of China’s so-called “assassin’s mace” arsenal - weapons that allow a technologically inferior China to defeat U.S. military forces.

EMP weapons mimic the gamma-ray pulse caused by a nuclear blast that knocks out all electronics, including computers and automobiles, over wide areas. The phenomenon was discovered in 1962 after an aboveground nuclear test in the Pacific disabled electronics in Hawaii.

July 21, 2011

I'm responding to a number of comments that in large part have gone unseen because they were intercepted before they ever went up.  Racists are always attempting to hitch a ride on legitimate sites, and AT is unfortunately no exception.  Anyone operating in the millennial media world must be careful, particularly a center-right website dealing forthrightly with sensitive topics as we do here.  There is nothing more common than fanatics of various stripes stepping over the line in the guise of "telling it straight."  And there is no topic where this is seen more often than race.

The argument here appears to be that, Obama being black, he acts as a natural representative of black Americans as a whole, that his faults are their faults, and that the entire Obama administration represents yet another instance of the unworthiness and inferiority of blacks.
We will give this claim a bit more attention that it actually deserves in hopes of doing something to nip it in the bud.

First the contention that Obama is a "representative" American black.  AT readers will be well aware that I don't believe that Obama is representative of much of anything at all, that he is sui generis to an extent that he might as well have walked off a starship from the planet Zong.  I haven't shifted in that opinion one iota.

Empower Texans exists to create and sustain a system of strong fiscal stewardship within all levels of Texas government, ensuring the greatest amounts of economic and personal liberty, and promoting public policies that provide individuals with the freedom to use their strengths and talents in pursuit of greater opportunities. We believe that government must be limited, and that citizens must be empowered to hold their elected officials accountable.
Why are we needed?
The greatest threat to our state's economic growth and competitiveness is the weight of government on the economy. If government and taxes are allowed to grow without restraint, the economy will contract, thereby limiting opportunities for all Texans. We seek policy outcomes that provide increasing levels of economic liberty and opportunity for all Texans by controlling the size of government. Government power and reach must be strictly limited, with elected officials held accountable by active and informed citizens.

How do we do it?
We inform voters, taxpayers and elected officials about policy solutions that are consistent with the principles of individual liberty and free markets, while working to build support for those policies among key constituencies. is the home to three entities.

Does Obama Want The Economy To Collapse?

The following was received in an email.

Dear DHFC Supporter,

As our economy stands on the brink, with the national debt crisis raising the possibility that our grandchildren will inherit a bankrupt country that looks more like Greece than America, you have to wonder. What is Barack Obama thinking?

How can the President have let things come to this pass? Did he know that the trillions spent on a national health care disaster and a government takeover of key industries would make things so much worse? Why, in the face of disastrous unemployment, inflation and the prospect of default, does he stick to the same old leftwing playbook of higher taxes and class warfare? Is the President trying to strain the American economy to the breaking point?

If you think this last question is improbable it is only because you haven't read the plan of two Marxist Professors from the 1960's who hatched the plan to "stress the system" so that a leftwing government can take more control over our lives and make America a place we will no longer recognize as home. These two professors, Frances Fox Piven and Richard Cloward (whose work Obama learned about as a young "community organizer in Chicago) envisioned an activism that would flood the housing market with bad loans, overwhelm the electoral system with the names of dead and fictitious voters, and give a toxic shock to the health care industry by adding millions of people to the rolls with their bills to be paid for by the taxpayer. They wanted all this to happen so that America would be forced to embrace socialist solutions.

Does this strategy sound familiar? Early in the Obama administration, Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel let the cat out of the bag when he said that "we shouldn't let a good crisis go to waste." The more profound the crisis, the more necessary to "radically transform America," as the President promised he would do on election eve 2008.

Piven and Cloward may not be household names, but their plan is playing a role in the financial chaos overtaking America today. That is why the Freedom Center must get the groundbreaking new pamphlet Breaking the System: Obama's Strategy for Change into the hands of as many Americans as possible at this critical moment when our country's economic future is being decided.

Breaking the System shows that Barack Obama is not merely the innocent prisoner of economic problems he inherited on taking office, as he has claimed. Rather he has deliberately shaped the government's response to give him an opportunity to move the country down the road to socialism. For the Obama Administration, crisis is not the tragedy, as it is for us; it is an opportunity to make left wing dreams come true. Breaking the System connects the dots by showing the connection between a radical plan of the 1960s and the President's current economic strategy. This pamphlet is a must-read for every freedom-loving American, and with your immediate contribution of $25 or more, we will rush you a copy right away.

Breaking the System is an indispensable guide for understanding our current economic predicament. That's why I'm asking for your help to get it into the public dialogue right now; into the blogosphere, the online media, the columnists, talk radio hosts, political editors, public officials, and every member of Congress! We need to raise $45,000 in the next 15 days to circulate this pamphlet to the widest possible audience in the hope that angry Americans will make their voices heard as decisions are made about our economic future. Will you help us? Please follow this link right away to make a tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or whatever you can afford to support the Freedom Center today. Don't forget that with your contribution of $25 or more, we will send you a copy of Breaking the System.

America stands on the economic brink. We must act immediately to keep the U.S. from becoming a third world country weighed down permanently by socialist solutions that grow government and crush individual initiative and personal freedom. I thank you for the support you have shown for our efforts in the past, and hope you will join me in this vital campaign. Please give generously to our effort to wake America up before it is too late.

P.S. No one in America understands the Left and the threat they pose to the future of our country more than me and my colleagues at the Freedom Center. Please help us today in fulfilling our mission in waking up and educating our fellow citizens.

The Anti-Birther Disinformation Campaign Has Fannie Mae/White House Connection

By Jerome R. Corsi
World Net Daily
July 19, 2011

NEW YORK – A top Democrat, apparently operating with the full approval and cooperation of the president, has been directing a team of up to 100 who are paid to publish disinformation on a wide variety of websites to discredit "birthers," according to anti-Obama researchers.

The radical supporters of the president, known as Obama robots, or "OBOTs" for short, have confirmed their White House-appointed ring leader is Democratic Party operative James A. Johnson, the former chairman of Fannie Mae.

Initially, the OBOTs attempted to mask their Internet identities by posting under usernames with avatars that suggest their personalities. But due largely to the efforts of anti-Obama researchers, including "birthers" vilified by the OBOTs, the true identities of key OBOT operatives have been revealed.

Speaking of obots --

First-Class Hypocrisy: Sen. Harry Reid On The Debt Ceiling Debacle

Russian Propaganda Networks Report That Obama Is a CIA Agent

By Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media
July 18, 2011

Wayne Madsen, a regular contributor to the Russia Today propaganda channel, has been making the rounds for a year claiming that Barack Obama or his family members have had CIA connections. Now, the American Thinker, a premier conservative news site, has taken the bait.

In a July 15 post, “The network that produced Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.,” Thomas Lifson cites an article on the site of the Claremont Institute that “raises the intriguing network of connections among President Obama’s family and programs sponsored by the CIA and a variety of fronts and associated groups…” Lifson claims a “history” by the CIA of co-opting “progressive American internationalists” and suggests this may be the case with Obama.

The allegations are that Obama and/or his parents or grandparents had affiliations with companies or foundations with alleged CIA links.

Lifson, editor and publisher of American Thinker, is described in his bio as a former academic with advanced degrees from Harvard who was a visiting professor at Columbia University and Japan’s National Museum of Ethnology.

But the Claremont piece he is promoting and which is titled, “The Chosen One,” admittedly relies on the work of “Self-styled investigative journalist Wayne Madsen,” whose “credibility is certainly checkered.”
The author of the Claremont article, Angelo M. Codevilla, has solid credentials. He is a professor of international relations at Boston University and Vice Chairman of the U.S. Army War College Board of Visitors. He wrote, The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It, with an introduction by Rush Limbaugh. He has well-established conservative credentials and a long and distinguished career that includes serving as a U.S. Senate Staff member dealing with oversight of the intelligence services.

Can you spare $1? Arizona lawmakers will seek donations from the public to build a border fence

By Grace Johnson

Arizona lawmakers are hoping to raise around $50 million for border fencing with a new online public fundraising plan that launches Wednesday – despite skepticism from key stakeholders. 

Under legislation signed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer in April, the state would use inmate labor and money pulled in through the website to fence in some of the 82 miles of border between Arizona and Mexico that remain open.

O4P CA; "The Undefeated" Opening Day Ground Report

There were times these last 3 weeks where it felt like we were trying to make some fish and a couple loaves of bread go an awful long way.

But 3 weeks of: boots on the gound, fingers on the keyboard, and good old fashioned volunteerism paid off big time this weekend!

Victory Film Group's The Undefeated opened on Friday July 15, 2011 and ended up having an average gross of $6570 per theater. If that wasn't enough to convince the dwindling sceptics: The Undefeated was ahead of EVERY movie except Harry Potter!

Organize4Palin (O4P) CA volunteers have worked double time these last 3 weeks to help coordinate success for this ground breaking (game-changing?) documentary chronicling the rise and battles Sarah Palin has faced in her 20 year political career.

Ever the prudent fiscal conservatives; O4P CA was able to generate fantastic box-office results in Orange, CA with practically no marketing money.

Gals & Guys: When we stand together in solidarity...we win!

By using Facebook, Twitter, Email, and the telephone volunteers successfully mobilized people to the theater.
