Is The Obama Regime Actually Threatening Members Of The Media Over The Birth Certificate Controversy?

Posted by BH

Is The Obama Regime Actually Threatening Members Of The Media Over The Birth Certificate Controversy? 
  Mike Zullo, the lead investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Cold Case Posse, just released a huge bombshell: “During our investigation, we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs.” And according to, the "threats were so intimidating that some individuals quit their positions over safety concerns for their families."   A legitimate and duly constituted law enforcement investigation, that obtained sworn affidavits and testimony from graphics experts, law enforcement experts and private citizens, has uncovered compelling evidence that the "birth certificate" released by Team Obama is a computer-generated forgery and that the man who is presently occupying the Oval Office is potentially occupying that office as a result of FRAUD and FORGERY.  AND NOW... it would appear that we can add RACKETEERING and CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY to the list of charges that must be investigated. If the American people could legitimately ask what a sitting President knew about a third-rate burglary attempt and when he knew about it, then the American people DESERVE to know what Barack Hussein Obama knows about attempts to threaten members of the media over his computer-generated "birth certificate."

The Closure Of The U.S. Oil Refinery Industry In The Past 2 Years

Posted by Bh

 There have been many refineries closed in the United States.  All (I think) were for economic considerations.  Most (I think) of the existing refineries have been upgraded over the years to provide more output of their particular slate of products.  We import some finished petroleum products as we do crude oil, and also export some finished petroleum products.  No one can doubt the increased pressure from this administration on the oil and natural gas companies.  That includes pressure from the unions backing him, including reelection.  I have been following the unions and energy in the U.S. since 1957, when Fermi 1 became the 1st United States nuclear reactor to face public opposition from the United Auto Workers Union
It originally made no sense to me that a union would do anything to hurt U.S. energy sources.  
Now its normal. 
 It is not the majority of union members, its those (as one friend and a union member told me) that "Live the good life"!  In 2003, I gave a paper at the Pacific Oil Conference saying this year the PRC (China) will surpass Japan behind the U.S. as the largest importer of oil, and that will change the dynamics of the world oil markets.  It did.  

Now that Germany has announced its going to shut down nuclear power, and a survey in Japan last weekend indicated almost 80% of the people think Japan should get away from nuclear power, the dynamics of the world oil markets already under pressure from strife in oil producing countries is under more stress.  Crude Oil and Gold are the world's most fungible commodities.  As the world's largest consumer of oil the United States is in for a rough ride.  Before anyone beats up the oil companies, my view is they do a great job of delivering fuel to our local gas stations. 
 Those same oil companies have millions of stock holders that deserve a return on their investment. 

 What the public reacts to is the media and many politicians making noise about their profits.  

They ignore the number of people employed directly or indirectly in the U.S. and cost of regulations and the amount of investments being made to keep supplying the U.S. with liquid fuels.  
Keep in mind around 94% for everything we eat, wear or use in our daily lives gets to us by diesel fuel, and the entire DOD and first responders for our national security are dependent on liquid fuels. 
The profits that should be looked at are those being enjoyed by the oil producing countries.  Many of those countries are using some of those profits to engage directly, or indirectly through proxies war against the United states.  I hope this helps.

Operation Fast and Furious investigation escalates as ATF, FBI disconnect revealed.
By William La Jeunesse
The investigation of Operation Fast and Furious escalated this past week as Fox News learned a leak at the Justice Department is providing documents to the Congressional investigators.
The scope of investigation also includes the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which records show failed to tell ATF its own confidential informants were helping finance the illegal gun purchases.
Eduardo and Jesus A. Miramontes-Varela, Mexican nationals born in Juarez worked for the Sinaloa Cartel when they became informants for the FBI in 2009, according to sources.
Previously, the brothers, ages 36 and 37, worked as informants for police in Miami, the U.S. Marshall's Service, and the DEA.
According to DEA and Congressional reports, the two men were the primary cartel contacts used to finance the illegal gun trafficking ring. Jim Needles, the assistant Agent in Charge of the Phoenix ATF office estimated the brothers spent $250,000 on guns tracked by his agency while conducting Operation Fast and Furious. Needles called it “a disappointment” the FBI didn’t bother to tell his agency of the connection.
“You are getting at the very basis of this investigation,” Senator Charles Grassley said Friday.
“But I have to wait till we have all the information before we bring down the hammer.”
Grassley first revealed in September 2011 the FBI, knew, but failed to tell the ATF, it’s informants were part of the gun trafficking ring. Then in February, Grassley called them “the big fish” ATF had been looking for the entire time.
Both the FBI and DEA know the Miramontes brothers’ role and identity, but declined to tell the ATF during a “deconfliction” meeting Dec. 15, 2009. Nor did either agency speak up at any of the joint meetings all three agencies attended of the Southwest Border Initiative. The DEA and ATF’s Group 7 shared the same floor of the same building and the same ‘wire room’ to listen to wiretaps of suspects.
Eventually and under pressure, the FBI invited top ATF officials to a classified briefing in El Paso in the late summer of 2010 and described the Eduardo and Jesus Miramontes as "a national security assets". The two men were "off limits, untouchable and indictable" said a source familiar with the briefing.
Asked a detailed set of questions regarding the Miramontes brothers role and payment as confidential informants, the FBI released this statement Friday, “There is a pending investigation and we cannot provide additional information even when there is inaccurate information being reported.”
Also this week, two damaging documents became public. One, a ATF ROI (Report of Investigation) from May 2010 shows that Manuel Celis-Acosta, ringleader of the illegal gun buyers, was stopped at a border checkpoint in Arizona with 74 rounds of ammunition, but ATF agents released him.
On Thursday, Congressman Darrell Issa and Grassley released a list of ROI’s that show ATF agents had evidence Acosta was trafficking weapons and one of his buyers, Uriel Patino, was lying on federal forms, but neither was arrested.
Late Friday, Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General Ron Weich warned Issa, “We are deeply disturbed that the sensitive law enforcement information…has entered the public realm.”
He said it is impeding the DOJ’s prosecution of current criminal cases arising from Fast and Furious.
A Congressional spokesperson for Issa made no apologies, saying the documents being leaked to the committee “are precisely what the Justice Department is hiding and what congressional investigators are seeking – basic information about who knew what when about Fast and Furious.”
Is it becoming clearer? Black operations are compartmentalized. The only thing that is required is the ability to deflect interest from other agencies and supervisors within a given agency who might be meddlesome. "National security" goes a long way. What is also required are back-channel means of communication and control. Can you say from "old friends" like the State Department's Kevin O'Reilly serving on the National Security Council and "Gunwalker Bill" Newell in Phoenix? I knew you could. And remember the one thing in Phoenix which would be required would be someone in control who could issue the proper orders and put them in a nice legal-looking frame -- Janet Napolitano's lickspittle, anti-gun zealot Dennis K. Burke. Personnel is policy.

Federal Judge Okays Flag Desecration

Federal Judge Okays Flag Desecration

Federal Judge Okays Flag Desecration
Mar 23, 2012
By Todd Starnes
A federal judge has declared Missouri’s flag desecration law is unconstitutional and cannot be enforced.
U.S. District Judge Carol E. Jackson issued a permanent injunction in the case of Frank Snider, who was arrested in 2009 for cutting up an American flag and throwing it into the street.
“The sense of patriotism that runs through Missouri is strong,” Attorney General Chris Koster told Fox News in a written statement. “Although we understood that defending the statute was an uphill battle, most Missourians have a strong reaction against flag desecration.  Our defense of the statute was our attempt to give voice to that patriotic sentiment.”
The Attorney General’s office told Fox News they are still reviewing the judge’s ruling and haven’t made any decisions on next steps. Missouri is among at least 20 states with laws banning flag desecration.
Missouri’s flag desecration law states: “Any person who purposefully and publicly mutilates, defaces, defiles, tramples upon or otherwise desecrates the national flag of the United States or the state flag of the state of Missouri is guilty of the crime of flag desecration.”
The law considered flag desecration a misdemeanor penalty.
However, the judge ruled that the entire statute was invalid because it prohibits a substantial amount of protected speech.
The American Civil Liberties Union hailed the judge’s ruling, calling it “satisfying” but “not surprising.”
“It’s a long delayed victory in Missouri,” said ACLU attorney Tony Rothert in an interview with the Associated Press. “The Supreme Court has been pretty clear that these statues are unconstitutional.”
The Missouri chapter of the American Legion denounced the ruling and said it was a sad day for the state.
“Anger,” is how Kenneth Goth, the American Legion Dept. Commander described his reaction to Fox News. “There’s a lot of people who fight for our country and that flag. You never see a veteran do that because they know what the honor is.”
Goth said he is passionate about the American flag. To him, the flag “means my country.” He said people who desecrate the American flag do so to “show their stupidity.”
 “People can take their freedom of speech a little too far and doing that to the American flag does,” he said.

Documents: White House was all-hands-on-deck as Solyndra collapse neared

By Ben Geman and Andrew Restuccia - 03/23/12 07:06 PM ET
Several key White House offices were involved with the Obama administration’s messaging plans and other preparations as the collapse of the taxpayer-backed solar company Solyndra was imminent, newly released documents show.
The latest White House documents delivered to House Republicans on Friday again highlight the extent to which senior administration officials braced for the fallout as Solyndra – a company President Obama had personally visited – was about to go under.
A White House memo that noted the danger of “imminent bankruptcy” at the end of August 2011 says, “OMB, DPC and NEC have been working with press and OLA to be prepared for this news to break.”
Acronym translation: OMB is the Office of Management and Budget, DPC is the Domestic Policy Council, NEC is the National Economic Council and OLA is the Office of Legal Affairs.
The document, an update on Solyndra’s $535 million Energy Department (DOE) loan guarantee, notes that $527 million

Subject: Who Gets Your Social Security When You Die?

I didn't do or check the math on this, but I think that people really need to stop calling SS an entitlement like it is a dirty word. I think of it more as repaying a loan that the government borrowed from us.


This was sent to me, I am sending it on because it does touch a nerve in me
This is another example of what Rick Perry called "TREASON in high places"!!! Get angry and pass this on!
Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security but your employer did too. It totaled 15% of your income before taxes. If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that's close to $220,500.
If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's

According to a witness known only as "John," Trayvon Martin assaulted George Zimmerman before being shot to death by the self-appointed neighborhood watchman on February 26.
On Friday, Fox Tampa reported that few know what authorities now have on the case.
Fox added:
The file now sits in the hands of the state attorney. Now that file is just weeks away from being opened to a grand jury.
It shows more now about why police believed that night that George Zimmerman shouldn't have gone to jail.
Zimmerman called 911 and told dispatchers he was following a teen. The dispatcher told Zimmerman not to.
And from that moment to the shooting, details are few.
"The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: 'help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911," the anonymous witness said.

Zimmerman was wearing a red sweater that day.

Viral Video: Yes, You Can Bungee Jump in a Wheelchair

Posted by BH

Just because someone needs to use a wheelchair due to a disability does not mean all bets are off for extreme sports or adventures like bungee jumping, skydiving, jet-boating, snowmobiling, snowboarding and wind-tunnel flying. Those are just to name a few.
Christi “LynX” Rougoor is a perfect example of a woman confined to a wheelchair who doesn’t let it get in the way of her adventuresome spirit. According to ITN News, Rougoor became a paraplegic after a motor-cross accident but her being an adrenaline junkie didn’t end there. Watch the report of how the video showing Rougoor bungee jump in her wheelchair has become a viral sensation:

CTV reports Rougoor, 25, saying every time she sees the footage her “heart leaps.” She said the experienced helped her feel more like the person she was before her 2008 accident:
“I think a lot of the things I‘ve done since my accident have made my parents think twice about where I go and who I’m meeting with but I think they trust I‘m the same person I was before the accident and I’m going to keep doing the things I love.”

Hoisting her over the bridge.

There she goes.

She said it felt like a roller coaster at first, then smoothed out.
While Rougoor may be today’s poster child for showing how thrill seeking is possible in a wheel chair, she is by no means the first. There are several videos on YouTube of others who have taken the plunge as well in wheelchairs. Here are just a couple. Canadian paralympian Rick Hansen takes a dive

This one has a video cam attached to the wheelchair to let you experience what it might be like to fall with the person:
As mentioned in the ITN News report, bungee jumping is not all that’s available either. 9Lives Adventures hosts “tours” for those like Rougoor who are in wheelchairs and those who aren’t. While we could list all that they can, it’s better described in pictures and videos:

No. It's not over. Well, okay, it's kind of over. But the Republican nomination is not totally- otally over. As it very well should be. How over?

Expensive overreach could prove fatal if not struck down

On Monday, the Supreme Court will consider the legality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also referred to as Obamacare. The high court will pore over Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution to determine the true meaning behind the words, “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common Defense and general welfare of the United States; To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations and among the several states, and with the Indian Tribes.” The 2012 Supreme Court must determine whether the Founders had any intention of mandating the behavior of private enterprises and individuals.
To me, the answer is obvious: absolutely not.
Our nation was founded on the Declaration of Independence. Freedom of choice and a free market are at the core

A federal judge on Wednesday continued to question the FBI's explanation for not producing videotapes associated with the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that a Salt Lake lawyer has sought for nearly six years.

 Posted by BH 
"This is a matter of significant public interest," the judge said, adding it's time for it to be resolved.
A federal judge on Wednesday continued to question the FBI's explanation for not producing videotapes associated with the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that a Salt Lake lawyer has sought for nearly six years.
"It's quite astounding that documents as important as these went missing and the FBI says, 'Well, they're gone,'" U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups said during a motion hearing.
At issue is whether the FBI adequately responded to Jesse Trentadue's Freedom of Information Act request for footage of Timothy McVeigh parking a truckload of explosives at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995. Specifically, the Salt Lake attorney is after a building surveillance tape and dashcam video from the Oklahoma state trooper who stopped McVeigh 90 minutes after the explosion that killed 168 people.

Fourth Largest Gun Maker In US Is Out Of Guns

Tyler Durden's pictureIn a somewhat sad and shocking slap of reality to the face of our 'recovery' and 'freedom-based-debt-holdings', today's press-release-of-the-day (since we still haven't heard from BATS) goes to Sturm, Ruger (the 4th largest gun-maker in the US) who after receiving orders for over one million units in Q1 has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

Forget PCLN, CRM, NFLX, here's where the real action is!
RGR is up a whopping 571% from Nov 07 while the S&P 500 is down 3%...

March 21, 2012
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR), announced today that for the first quarter 2012, the Company has received orders for more than one million units. Therefore, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

Chief Executive Officer Michael O. Fifer made the following comments:

The Company's Retailer Programs that were offered from January 1, 2012 through February 29, 2012 were very successful and generated significant orders from retailers to independent wholesale distributors for Ruger firearms.

Year-to-date, the independent wholesale distributors placed orders with the Company for more than one million Ruger firearms.

Despite the Company's continuing successful efforts to increase production rates, the incoming order rate exceeds our capacity to rapidly fulfill these orders. Consequently, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

The Company expects to resume the normal acceptance of orders by the end of May 2012.
The Company will announce its results and file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the first quarter of 2012 on Tuesday, May 1, 2012, after the close of the stock market.

That’s right – I said Hispanic.  The alleged killer of 17 year old Trayvon Martin in Florida has initiated a barrage of media coverage attempting to portray America as a still terribly racist nation.  What these same media reports fail to state time and time again though is that the shooter, George Zimmerman, is Hispanic.

With the last name of Zimmerman, more commonly associated with someone of Jewish origin, the false portrayal of the Martin shooting as evidence of a racially motivated crime is more easily made.  And yet, it is George Zimmerman’s own father who told reporters his son was a Hispanic man and former alter boy.  Media personalities and Democratic politicians have charged Florida law enforcement with alleged racism as well for not arresting Mr. Zimmerman for the shooting.  Hmmm…racism for not arresting a minority?  Really?
As for George Zimmerman, he certainly may be racist against Blacks.  His being Hispanic should not dismiss him from that possibility.  The fact is though, that the vast majority of news coverage of the shooting is neglecting to indicate Zimmerman’s Hispanic heritage.  That omission is a purposeful misrepresentation by the media in a clear attempt to have Americans believe George Zimmerman is white.  Some media reports even went so far as to incorrectly state that Zimmerman was in fact white.
It is clear that the entire episode is being facilitated as a means of once again shaming American voters prior to the November 2012 Election.  For of course, a vote against Obama is a vote for racism – right?

Oh – and by the way.  If all of the Al Sharptons of the world were actually motivated by truth, they would openly condemn the far more common Black on White violence that takes place in America.  That isn’t just my view – it also happens to be the view of Black commentator Larry Elders.
Watch the following video that depicts some of the most violent and brutal crimes against Whites.  There was little to no national media coverage of these crimes – and certainly not Democratic politicians crying out against the loss of life at the hands of Black criminals:

Egypt Designates Israel Its Top Enemy — Obama Restores Military Aid

Posted by BH

Egypt’s parliament, which is dominated by two pro-Sharia Islamic supremacist groups, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists, voted unanimously last Monday to expel Israel’s ambassador to Egypt, and signaled that the Camp David Accords would soon be a thing of the past: Egypt, the parliamentarians declared, would “never” be Israel’s ally. In fact, Israel was Egypt’s “number one enemy.” And how did Barack Obama respond to this egregious trampling upon the agreement that has kept an uneasy peace between Israel and Egypt for thirty years? By announcing a resumption of military aid to Egypt.
From the beginning of the “Arab Spring,” I said repeatedly that it was not a democracy movement, as the Western press was claiming, but an Islamic supremacist takeover that would result in the creation of Sharia states that would be far more hostile to the U.S. and Israel than the Arab nationalist regimes they were supplanting. This assessment was greeted with the usual scorn: the Islamic

Ten questions for the Council on American Islamic Relations

Ten questions for the Council on American Islamic Relations

By Brigitte Gabriel, Frank Gaffney

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has launched a propaganda campaign attacking a state legislative initiative that is designed to protect the constitutional rights of all Americans, including Muslims.
That initiative is known as American Laws for American Courts (ALAC).
CAIR claims this bill would have the opposite effect – infringing upon Muslims’ and others’ right to freedom of religion. CAIR’s real motivation, however, is not to safeguard the U.S. Constitution, but rather to promote the insinuation here of Shariah, a totalitarian Islamic political-military-legal doctrine. Shariah requires and enforces discrimination against women, children, homosexuals, atheists, members of other religions such as Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and Christians, as well as Muslims who repudiate the dictates of that doctrine.
A review of the actual language of the American Laws for American Courts legislation shows that CAIR is deliberately and falsely characterizing it as anti-Shariah. As we shall see, ALAC is not targeted at either Shariah or Islam. Unlike a constitutional amendment to the State of Oklahoma’s constitution that was approved in 2010 by seventy percent of the voters, neither term is mentioned anywhere in ALAC’s bill language. (A complete comparison can be found here: .)
ALAC’s very different approach was vindicated when the Council on American Islamic Relations succeeded in challenging the Oklahoma amendment on the grounds that it singled out Shariah law and therefore was ruled unconstitutional. Instead, ALAC is crafted to prevent the infringement in our court system on individual liberties by any foreign laws or legal doctrines, a phenomenon known as “transnationalism.”
This is made necessary since America has unique values of liberty that do not exist in many foreign legal systems. Among those guaranteed rights and privileges are: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, due process and equal protection under the law, the right to privacy and the right to keep and bear arms.
Unfortunately, increasingly, foreign laws and legal doctrines that would restrict or deny these liberties are finding their way into U.S. court cases, thanks largely to the rulings of transnationalist judges. In some instances, these judges are permitting the use of Shariah to adjudicate disputes on their dockets.
The appeal of the American Laws for American Courts model for preventing such intrusions of unconstitutional foreign laws is evident from the fact that it has been enacted to date in three states: Tennessee in April 2010, in Louisiana in June 2010 and in Arizona in May 2011. And ALAC’s fundamental constitutionality is evident in the fact that neither CAIR nor anyone else has filed a legal challenge to any of these three laws, let alone succeeded in getting ALAC struck down.
Knowing that a legal challenge to American Laws for American Courts is hopeless, CAIR has stooped to launching dishonest and misleading attacks against an initiative designed to preserve our freedoms.
How, one might ask, can an American organization oppose legislation that is crafted to form a reinforcing bulwark to protect our most fundamental freedoms against foreign laws that do not respect them? The answer lies, in part, with the nature of the Council on American Islamic Relations.
The Department of Justice has named CAIR as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood (and its Palestinian franchise: the officially designated terrorist group, Hamas). Evidence introduced in the Holy Land Foundation trial established
