never underestimate the Clinton sleaze factor (or Obama's skill in knifing people in the back)... she's been inevitable ever since Bill bought her the NY senate seat. One term as a failed secretary of state and one failed presidential bid.

the media in full scale meltdown over what Rudy said ...

they've gone fully zuul:

To be fair to Scott Walker, he's been so busy governing, he hasn't had time to personally authenticate the President's birth certificate

I don't get what that means?

James O'Keefe ‏@JamesOKeefeIII

We have a story we’re going to release this coming week and I've never thought about this before but I am afraid for my life on this one.

Captain Hate

I didn't see LaTourette's scam Main Street Advocacy group there unless he's renamed it.

Threadkiller

Wasn't it just prior to the release of his universe shattering story that Breitbart dropped dead?

Was the full story ever released or was just the stupid videos Hannity played?

narciso

it's number 3 on the list, there isn't a link in the report, to the source material

Threadkiller

...or was it...

narciso

sorry no. 2. for those that don't bother to read the whole story RMP seems legit, even though it's an astroturf outfit,

Danube on iPad

The CIA had Breibart rubbed out, then set their sights on Fuddy. No one is safe.

Captain Hate

You are correct, narc; even though the organization name is slightly different LaTourette was heading up the board of directors. When I see Saxby Chambliss and Peter King, Main Street comes right to mind.

Miss Marple

Janet,

That comment by Halperin came after 2 days of Guiliani-bashing when he was outraged that Walker wouldn't denounce Guiliani.

It was after a series of complaints about it, so he stuck that in there as snark and a way to insult anyone who doesn't toe the MSM approved story line, in which all GOP are supposed to denounce Guiliani.

It's pretty funny, because earlier he had tweeted that conservatives let our anger over liberal bias blind us to when the media is right. So then he posted THAT!

Twitter is very amusing today.

Jane

Alice that is what I was looking for. Thanks

And sadly, Jimmy is probably right, altho I bet a ton of backstabbing goes on in the democrat party in the next year.

I wonder what O'Keefe's got.

Jack is Back!

AliceH,

Did you notice that the kids are getting the State Dept. treatment of Islamic terrorists? Counseling.

JeanD

Miss Marple,

IIRC, a couple of years ago, Mark H. got thrown off his gig at Morning Joe (for a short time) for saying that Obama had acted like a dick.

He thought he could speak freely, and that it wouldn't go to air, but he couldn't, and it did.

Made me laugh.

Danube on iPad

The ever-growing elephant in the room is the absence of a listing by someone--anyone--of things Obama has said since 2007 (or any time) that evidence his love for his country. They are very few and far between, and are swamped by his criticisms and apologies.

Janet - I wish my family had a poncho

One more point on that "sovereign citizen" terrorist crap -

"They're carrying out sporadic terror attacks on police, have threatened attacks on government buildings and reject government authority."

Who does THAT sound like?

Rick Ballard

Janet,

Can't you tell good rabble from bad rabble? The JustUs Department guidelines are very clear - in fact the clarity of the distinction can justifiably be defined as a matter of black and white.

Pagar

From the 03:21 per Miss Marple of what Halperin was carrying on about.

"when the media is right."

As I draw close to 4 score in years, I have forgotten when the last time the media was right.
It seem like there was time during WWII when they got something right?
Anyone else remember them getting something right?

rich@gmu

also wondering what O'Keefe got ...

weed yeah ...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/20/marijuana-legalization-congress_n_6722686.html

iirc DC's plan is a mess because Congress has prevented them from implementing any part of the referendum they passed.

Miss Marple

Pagar,

he's just full of it. They are in full-blown panic over Obama's dislike of the country being discussed.

And as Danube says, they haven't produced one bit of evidence that he does love the country.

It's amazing. And the more they go after Rudy, the more Rudy's remarks get covered. Pretty soon the LIV's will know about it, too.

Jane

Snowing here.

I'm shocked!

rich@gmu

half the memorandum page is about it or calls for others to denounce Unperson Giuliani ...

Is there something special about citizen Giuliani or is their point that none of us citizens is permitted to speak critically of Dear Leader?

Janet - I wish my family had a poncho

What is so sad about Barry Soetoro hating America is how much he was given & what a charmed life he led in many ways. His mother & father may have treated him like crap, but America & it's institutions didn't. His white grandmother sure seemed good to him too.

Snowing here also. Hubby went to the cabin this morning to put the kayak on the truck. All we have to do is put the suitcases and the dog in the truck and we're out of here! (leaving Wed.)
Jack,I was thinking about A1A this morning and how busy it must be,the weather sounds great!

Pagar

I see where Gov Jindal was able to get thru to citizen Giuliani and congratulate him.
I doubt if I could so I'll just ask God to protect him from the leftists.

Fox News: Libyan location of latest ISIS video a fake?

Veryan Khan, editorial director of the Florida-based Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium told Fox News: ‘The Islamic State’s manipulation of their high-production videos has become commonplace. The murders likely took place in a studio, and the background image shown was likely from another location, the Bay in Sirte, a part of the Mediterranean Sea on the northern coast of Libya. There are several technical mistakes in the video that show it was manipulated.’

Wow JIB, what an offer, thank you!

Nassau County here on Long Island is governed by the biggest wimps in the world. We are having some snow today, about 3 inches. The roads are all still passable, especially since just about everybody drives a four wheel drive vehicle. Took my son to the County Art museum in Roslyn only to find out it was closing early due to the "storm." What storm? It is normal winter weather. They were also closed on President's Day, which would have been a perfect time to bond with my family at the museum. Grrrrr

Did Barry introduce her to Papa Barry?

FTL

Those up in arms about Giuliani's remarks all "love" this country the same way that Obama "loves" this country. That is why what Giuliani said grates so badly on them.

To me, what is most ugly about this affair is that it confirms what I have long thought about them. They are my enemies, and this country would be vastly improved by their absence.

Bill O'Reilly Reluctantly Reports Obama Lived In Indonesia & Went To Muslim Based Schools

Bill O'Reilly panel discuss why Obama is so hell-bent on not offending the peaceful religion of Islam.

Fox News' O'Reilly on Obama:

Lived in Indonesia as a child. His father was a Muslim. He was educated in some Muslim based schools.


No mention Obama's Indonesian school record identifies Obama as an Indonesian citizen under his adopted name Barry Soetoro with the religion of Islam. O'Reilly chalked up Obama's pro-Islam-talk as rhetorical mistakes.

So much for the No Spin Zone!

No Giuliani, no Obama, but very, very much reporting on the Oscar's, with special focus on the "No Blacks Nominated" racism angle.

You know, teh internets is great and all but the quality of insight found here also serves to royally piss me off that I cannot turn on my TV - to any station of the, what, 850 on offer - and hear someone properly and intelligently challenge the moronic statements made daily by this administration and its many slavish followers.
Its truly absurd.

Ignatz

It is refreshing to begin to have a genuine conversation about what the left wants and what their true aims are after all the decades of charades.

clarice

Isn't it? I've solved that by never watching it.

I also think there's something to the contention that pictoral reporting is slower, more stupid and brain cell killing than written account.

FTL

Can you add to the list?

No need. I commented over at Belmont Club yesterday about a thought I had recently regarding Clinton. How was it that Clinton was successfully cast as "cool" in our culture when everything about him from his trailer-trash upbringing to his looks and mannerisms to his professed beliefs to his aberrant sexually predatory behavior (yes, that was public before he was first elected in 1992) would have made Clinton *the* bully magnet in every environment I was in for the quarter century from the time I was born until the day he was elected?

More than just a few "bullies" really fell down on the job in Hope, Arkansas.

The irritating anti-bullying PSAs on TV over the last few years drove the point home. Clinton paved the way, and we are now living in the post-Homecoming world from the Revenge of the Nerds movie.

Up is now down, black is now white. The ball is in reality's court now.

Ignatz

Math question;
No blacks nominated = racism.
Hollywood = overwhelmingly leftist.
Can we, by the transitive property, conclude leftists = racists?

In his four years in Indonesia, Obama spent two years in a Catholic school, then two years in the public school described below:

"Indonesia is a Muslim country, and Obama attended a public school there, which taught a small amount of religion. CNN, the Associated Press, the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune investigated the e-mail claims by visiting the school and interviewing former teachers and students who were there at the same time as Obama. These investigations found a public school where students wore Western clothing and prayer was a small part of the curriculum. The Chicago Tribune reported the school was 'so progressive that teachers wore miniskirts and all students were encouraged to celebrate Christmas.'

"PolitiFact found no on-the-record sources able to substantiate a claim that the school taught Wahabism or any other form of austere Islam. The great preponderance of substantiated evidence indicates Obama attended a public school that taught a small amount of mainstream Islam. The news reports say that Obama's registration form indicates his religion was Muslim, but there are errors on the forms and it seems reasonable to assume that he was registered as Muslim simply because his stepfather was Muslim. And it's worth noting — as the chain e-mail does — that Obama also attended a Catholic school in Indonesia for several years."

That Arsenio hall show capture is exactly what I was thinking. I remember seeing that on the TV news, and my first thought was, "What a jackass! A f'ing band geek as POTUS?"

I guess others didn't see it the same way.

And I apologize to anyone who took my comment as a rip on Arkansas. I did not mean it that way.

But even without rewinding the clock by 23 years, I cannot believe that somebody who wrote, "I am writing too in the hope that my telling this one story will help you understand more clearly how so many fine people have come to find themselves still loving their country but loathing the military, to which you and other good men have devoted years, lifetimes, of the best service you could give. To many of us, it is no longer clear what is service and what is disservice, or, if it is clear, the conclusion is likely to be illegal," to an Army O-6 on Christmas was ever elected to our nation's highest office.

The culture that tags this as "cool" is a diseased culture that does not deserve to continue to exist.

Obama is whole other story.

Rick Ballard

I believe it to be a reasonable assumption that it was Obama's maternal grandfather rather than Marshal who began the "Polly wanna Marxist dialectic" indoctrination which Marshal may well have reinforced in between deep tokes. BOzo's Marxism is just slogans babbled to get his point patted. Planting the Marxist seed in quartz gravel usually has that result. Ask anyone credentialed by Pitzer College, if you have time to truly waste.

On the sovereign citizen threat...

DHS: You right wingnuts are worse than ISIS

But if it’s domestic threats that we’re worrying about, is this really the top trophy to go after? In 2012 (the last year of full records) there were 500 gang killings in Chicago alone. For those of you keeping score at home, unlike the 24 in the last five years racked up by the “sovereign citizens” brigade, that’s more than 28 every three weeks.

The whole thing might seem silly to us, but to the DHS it's all about the intended targets.

Gangs go after other underserved community members. Muslims go after Jews. But "sovereign citizens" are a threat to government.

A Catholic school in Indonesia. Please impress me. I lived there for 2 years and never heard of anything like that. Even in Jakarta or if you are a colonis, Batavia.

From James O'Keefe's email today...

I sent my team into the thick of the protests and near riots in New York.

They stood next to young and angry citizens raising their hands and screaming "I can't breathe." As the dust settled, we found that nearly all of them were stirred to action on false pretenses and to the financial benefit of their agitators.

This led our investigation to Ferguson, Missouri and ultimately to the top echelons of power.

Unlike any other story I've unearthed in my career, I have never had the eerie feeling that is now burning in my gut. You see, the target of this video is in Obama's inner circle. That should give you a good idea about the gravity of this story.

Miss Marple

Obama's mother taught English and served as an assistant director of the U.S. government-subsidized Indonesia-America Friendship Institute,[23] while Obama attended the Indonesian-language Santo Fransiskus Asisi (St. Francis of Assisi) Catholic School around the corner from their house for 1st, 2nd, and part of 3rd grade.[21]

There is a glitch in the "years spent in Indonesia" story too -
"A former Manoa resident sent President Barack Obama an old photo of the two of them taken while they were third-grade classmates at Noelani Elementary School, requesting an autograph more than six months ago. He recently received the autographed picture back, as well as a personally signed thank-you note."

"The picture—with the words "Scott & Barry 3rd grade 1969" scribbled at the bottom by Inoue's mother"

As if under some kind of spell, the MSM simultaneously believes Obama has a special insight into Islam that none of have because of his experience at school in a Muslim country and, at the same time, that his education in Islam is nothing to speak of. He is their magic Islamic/non-islamic negro. He is their prophet, and we are not fit to tie his shoes.

Well if Wiki is the source then you need a better reference. I do not believe he attened that particular school if step-father was a muslim? But that is part of the phony biography you seem to adopt as fact no matter what. How do you know that is in fact a fact?

I mean really, how ferking hard is this??
Q: President Obama, you have many times taken it upon yourself to educate others on the nature of Islam [cite examples as necessary], how and when did you acquire this unusual knowledge of Islam?
A: I lived in a Muslim country when I was young.
Q: I'm aware of that, but how did living there educate you about Islam? Was Islam explained to you there by your neighbors? Your domestic staff? The TV? Your schoolteachers? The local imam?

In this way, one can easily learn that either (a) he doesn't really speak from any special knowledge, or (b) his Muslim education/indoctrination is more extensive than he has let on.

This is depositions taking 101 - well within the skill set of the most junior litigation attorney.

Why has no-one in the press corps done this? And why has 'the most transparent administration in history' enabled this to be done? And why aren't more people mad as hell about it?
