"What the Mailman Knows about Ayers and Obama

By Jack Cashill

A few days ago I got a call asking whether I knew anything about the Ayers family mailman. I had heard of him, I said. I remembered liberal blogger Steven Diamond having interviewed the fellow a few years back, but I paid it little mind, as the information seemed too limited to pursue.

The caller then sent me a video interview with the mailman by WND sleuth Jerome Corsi. The video made me sit up and pay attention. The mailman is a real person. His name is Alan Hulton. He seems entirely credible, and he has a story to tell..."

Yesterday on Talk Radio I heard a bit of an accusation that essentially said the following:

The DOJ is actively hiring Lefty workers into the DOJ that are technically "disabled" due to physical or mental problems, and the supposed reason for doing this is to stack the DoJ with lefties because they cannot be fired under some Disabilities hiring Act by any new incoming Administration.

I did not get the name of the show who brought it up and can't find anything on it by googling so I imagine it is bogus.

Have any of you heard of it, or do you know if it's factually bogus.

Thanks in advance if anyone has any input.

I love how Dennis is unashamedly calling these guys exactly what they are. No mincing words. No fear. It's a pleasure to hear.

Thanks Narciso for that link.

Frightening, but I put nothing past these guys.

From the link:

"Those with “targeted disabilities” may be hired through a “non-competitive” appointment. That means they don’t have to endure the regular civil service competition among applicants, but can be plucked from the stack of resumes and hired immediately instead"

"...those with these “targeted disabilities” may be hired “before the position is advertised” and even “before the position’s closing date.” Moreover, lawyers with psychiatric disabilities and “severe intellectual” disabilities receive a waiver from the requirement that a new DOJ employee have practiced law for one year before being hired."

Hey, maybe Michelle Obama can get a job now in the DoJ.

So busy at work today - have no idea if this has been posted already:

SPOKANE, Wash. -

Re the Raub story:

“The special justice is very old,” Whitehead said. “He had trouble hearing Brandon. He brought into the courtroom a personal cassette player – we tried to listen to it and you can hardly hear what’s being said. This is the so-called judge – he’s a lawyer, not a real judge – it’s like what you would see in a bad movie.”

Second case this year in which obvious injustice was done by a judge who should have been allowed to retire in peace. Perhaps the practice of pulling judges out of retirement needs to be rethought?

I suppose it is illegal to say anything about this, but who made these rules?

I like today's call by Mitt Romney for complete energy independence by 2020. I think that is a real winner, especially if it is continually pushed and we get some specifics of his ideas about how to accomplish that.

I see from FOX that already an Obama spokesperson has responded that that is exactly what Obama wants also. Good. That means we can start a new national debate of each candidates ideas about how to achieve energy independence by 2020.

We win that debate easily.

Sara,

Thanks for the link to Raub's release. I was almost apoplectic when I read the original story and watched the vid. But this is only emblematic of what it will be like under Obama's 2nd term.

I mean look at the expansion of the TSA mission and those creeps are even equal to police cadets. Forget the brown shirts look for the touchy-feely crowd in blue.

daddy

FOX Business just had on an Obama supporter/Key Stone opponent.

Her talking point is that "eminent domain" will be required in order to build a pipeline and that since Conservatives are opposed to eminent domain, American's will not support Romney's policies about Energy Independence and will instead support either the status quo or Obama's ideas (which nobody has heard.)

I am so looking forward to this debate. Bring it on. As if the Left gives 2 shits about eminent domain.

daddy,

From my experience there is hardly any eminent domain issues for pipelines. But there is a famous one back in the late 70 early 80's. The ETSI coal slurry pipeline was to bring coal slurry from Eastern Wyoming coal fields to loading terminals in Arkansas and Louisiana.

But the railroads opposed. Little known fact: RR's own a lot of the land contingent to their right of way and of course, oppose any line going underneath their lines. It never got built but from all the legal cases, the guys at ETSI ended up owning the RR's.

Iggy,

The first guys out the door on a pipeline project or Xmission line is the ROW crew (right of way). They spend endless hours negotiating every inch of property that will be used, even the staging and work areas. Lots of farmers, loggers, ranchers and even suburbanites have had nice little paychecks as a result.

Don't even know of a line not started without a full ROW purchase and permitting.

daddy

The FOX Business News gal today dealing with the "Eminent Domain"
talking points is Sandra Smith:

She looks great today in some red low-cut outfit, and it was fun to see her mouth turn up in a wry smile at the corners listening to the nonsense of the Obama supporter. I enjoyed every bit of that.

Just to show how stupid and ill informed DuDa is then read his 5:46. The POTUS cannot declare a national emergency in Florida until the governor of the state asks him to do so. POTUS declarations without governor requests are limited to public danger and terrorism, IIRC.

But outside of that you were "spot on" as usual. Have a great day.

Wrong! The President can declare a state of emergency under 'The Insurrection Act' which was recently amended to include natural disasters such as Tropical storms and Hurricanes.

Once again; the President will be making an official announcement from the Rose garden at 9.00 am tomorrow morning.

If Stedman ends up hiring a bunch of useless humps into the DOJ that can't be fired because of the ADA, thank Poppy Bush for getting rolled on that Pandora's Box.

If he does that and the storm doesn't hit that exact spot, he's done, dd. I hope he does it.

Trying to predict the path of a hurricane is a fool's errand for even a day in advance. If he does such a nakedly partisan ploy, it'll make 1980 look like a nail biter.

It could just be a disaster declaration for the Keys and South Florida. The storm track has it running up the west coast.

I'm thinking though that Obama sat on his hands and didn't declare as disaster areas the flooding in TN and KY. Odd.

It really depends upon the city and the logistics of evacuating large numbers of people. Mayor Bloomberg issued his warning several days before Irene was due to hit. The Declaration itself allows supplies to be flown in and emergency teams to draw up rescue and evacuation plans. Tampa is a huge city and the President feels it would be wise to cancel the Republican Convention now before any more work and money are wasted.

"Conservatives are opposed to eminent domain"

It's provided for in the original language of the comstitution, for openers. I suppose she's referring to the Kelo decision, which for the first time held that private property could be taken for a public "purpose," and not just for public use. The pipeline would be for a public use, and wouldn't offend this conservative.

Fox has a new LV poll today.

The skew is 42D 38R 18I, about 2-4 points strong for the Dems.

Result?

Romney 45 Obama 44

The poll indicates a 20% higher level of interest (the "very important" question) among Republicans. Alternatively - The poll reflects the standard 20% damage done by President Obama to the Democrat brand.

I saw that LV poll-- I was very unhapppy to see overall approval of 51%. We'll have to see how this Fox LV polll trends.

At least we've abandoned the notion that the President cannot declare a state of emergency.

As someone who lives in Florida I am always amazed at how the trolls from wherever know more about our hurricane preparation and forecasting than we do. DuDa is now smarter than Odummy if in fact Odummy calls a national emergency when there is no idea even Monday if there will be one. If you want to lose Florida, then let the Feds decide our fate instead of the local emergency people. Dumb and Dumber.

Rick Ballard

NK,

The 51% was set up by asking about the Clinton's first. The last Fox poll on July 17th was an RV (same skew as August) at 45 Obama, 40 Romney and 47% approval for the President. The set up question was not asked. The LV/RV swing from July to August suggests the level of intensity is a very strong indicator of Obama's weakness.

JM Hanes

"Conservatives are opposed to eminent domain"

Yeah, sort of like opposing Dodd-Frank means you don't believe in regulating anything.

DD's (the last post HAD Dave) posts are further evidence that a little knowledge on the Left is a silly thing. After Katrina, the arcane 1807 Insurrection Act was amended to allow the POTUS to federalize State Nat'l Guards and use Federal troops in the case of natural disasters, where State authorities could no longer keep public order. Before that natural disasters required Governor request for federal military assets in the case of a natural disaster. There were delays in sending Federal military assets into NoLa after Katrina because that disgusting bitch Govenor did not authorize federal military assistance. Bush ordered the Coast Guard in (Dept of Homeland sec NOT DoD) and skirted Posse Comitatus by ordering USN Helos in on the theory they were operating over navigable water, not on the ground-- NoLa was flooded, right?. To avoid delays in the future Congress gave the POTUS the power to use Federal military assets without governor approval, IF the state government could not maintain public order. Tomorrow -- it will be what sunny and 85 degrees in Tampa? I think public order will still be maintained. No POTUS orders tomorrow Boy-O.

Extraneus

Shushhh.

If you feel this is the right thing to do, Mr President, then as President you should do it. You should also dispatch Michelle down there and have her tied to a utility pole in a sheer sleeveless blouse while being interviewed on the Weather Channel. It's the right thing to do, and you know it. You can feel it in your bones. And let's face it, you won.

Clarice

The Examiner:


"Two key state polls of U.S. Senate races released today by Rasmussen Reports show that, aside from the issue concerning Todd Akin and the Missouri senate race, the trend is otherwise moving more strongly to the likelihood of a GOP majority in the U.S. Senate after this year's election. While Rasmussen is reporting a 48 percent to 38 percent lead by incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill over defiant Republican Todd Akin, the first general election poll of the Connecticut race shows Republican Linda McMahon leading over Democratic Congressman Chris Murphy by a 49 percent to 46 percent margin.

This analysis projects if the elections were held today, Republicans would win enough seats to enjoy a 52 seat senate majority, and Democrats would hold a 47 seat minority. The Ohio race is too close to call as of today. The map above shows the state senate races and the light gray are the states not holding a U.S. Senate race this year."
