The Gay Left Lies about Reagan — Again - Deroy Murdock - National Review Online

By Deroy Murdock
June 28, 2012 4:00 A.M.

With Gay Pride season in full swing this month, it’s time for yet another round of Reagan-bashing, courtesy of angry, left-wing gay activists.
In this year’s episode, the White House invited a delegation of gay Philadelphians to a June 15 Pride celebration — the first ever at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. To the sounds of the Marine Corps Band, several of these guests stank up the place by giving the finger to the official portrait of the late Ronald Wilson Reagan. They proudly captured this incident on camera, as the photos demonstrate.
“F**k Reagan,” Matthew “Matty” Hart wrote in the Facebook caption of a picture showing him waving his middle digits at Everett Raymond Kinstler’s oil painting of the 40th President of the United States. “Yeah, f**k Reagan,” Hart reiterated in the June 22 Philly Post. As he told writer Victor Fiorillo, “Ronald Reagan has blood on his hands. The man was in the White House as AIDS exploded, and he was happy to see plenty of gay men and queer people die. He was a murderous fool, and I have no problem saying so. Don’t invite me back [to the White House]. I don’t care.”

Gildersleeves - The Cops must have forgotten about the FIRST AMENDMENT!!!!! Natalie Plummer arrested for holding sign warning drivers about police speed trap


This kind of abuse of power and entrapment goes on all the time and needs to be STOPPED!

These random abuses and forced violations waste too much time and money of the victims. If these police are so fat with extra time to set up this kind of abuse fill up their bloated budgets, then maybe some layoffs are in order.
Bravo for Natalie Plummer.


Natalie Plummer arrested for holding sign warning drivers about police speed trap | Mail Online

Pedestrian thrown in jail for 12 hours for holding up sign warning drivers about police speed trap


A woman in Houston, Texas, was arrested and jailed for 12 hours after she held up a make-shift sign to warn drivers about a speed trap. 
Natalie Plummer was officially charged with walking in the roadway -- jaywalking, essentially -- though she says the police officers who arrested her were just angry that she had tipped off speeders. 
Miss Plummer was riding her bicycle along a road near downtown Houston on Thursday when she spotted police officers pulling drivers over.
She told KTRK that it looked like the officers were targeting cars at random, so she recorded some the activity on her cell phone. 
Then, she said, she turned around and wrote 'Speed Trap!!' in large letters on a piece of grocery bag to warn oncoming traffic. 
'I was simply warning citizens of a situation ahead,' she told the TV station.
The officers didn't see it that way. Shortly after she took up her post, a squad car pulled up to Miss Plummer and an officer grabbed her backpack off her shoulder and began rifling through it.
Then, he handcuffed her and told her she was under arrested for felony obstruction of justice and that she would spent three to five years in jail, at minimum.
She ended up being charged with misdemeanor 'walking in the road where a sidewalk is present,' through she was in jail 12 hours before she was able to bail out. 
Miss Plummer said she wasn't obstructing justice, and she wasn't in the roadway, either -- she was on the sidwalk. 
'He couldn't take me to jail for holding up this sign or he would have. So all he could do was make up something fake about it,' she said. 
The Houston Police Department wouldn't speak on camera about the arrest, but stood by the officer's report that she was walking in the road and a danger to herself and others. 
A KTRK legal analyst says Miss Plummer should not have been arrested.

This is why we have a right to shoot at them if they attempt a break in! Online threat — but SWAT team raids wrong house


It will keep these gung ho storm troupers from jumping in before double checking where they bust in!


Online threat — but SWAT team raids wrong house
By 
-full short post-

Imagine you're sitting at home, comfortable on the couch, watching the Food Network, when all of a sudden a heavily armed SWAT team breaks down your door and storms into your living room.
That's what happened to 18-year-old Stephanie Milan, who was watching TV in her family's Evansville, Ind., home last Thursday (June 22), when a team of police officers broke down her storm door — the front door was already open — and tossed a flash-bang stun grenade into the room.
"The front door was open," Ira Milan, Stephanie's grandfather and the property owner, told the Evansvile Courier & Press. "To bring a whole SWAT team seems a little excessive."
Turns out, however, that the SWAT team had the address wrong.
The Courier & Press said the police had been investigating "anonymous and specific online threats made against police and their families on the website topix.com," and had obtained a search warrant for the Milan house. An Evansville police officer said one of the threats that came from the Milan household mentioned explosives and said, "Evansville is going to feel the pain."
Whoever made these threats, the Courier & Press said, likely remotely routed them through the Milan's open Wi-Fi connection, which means it could have been used from an outside location. It's possible the Milans, or specifically Stephanie, were targets of "swatting," a particularly nasty prank by which the perpetrator — often through hoax 911 calls — tricks a SWAT team into raiding a house of his choosing.
Last July, Parry Aftab, a prominent Internet security advocate, became the victim of such an attack. Police swarmed her northern New Jersey home after pranksters placed a 911 call through a computer that cloned her number and said a man had killed four people and was holding another hostage in her house.

Judge Napolitano: Roberts Didn't Make The "Constitutional Decision"


It was refreshing to hear Judge Napolitano speak candidly about the mental metamorphosis that takes place in some justices, once they put on the black robe for life.


Judge Napolitano: Roberts Didn't Make The "Constitutional Decision"
June 29, 2012
Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on this decision on today’s Fox and Friends. He said, "I don’t think he made the right decision. I don’t think he made the sensible decision. I don’t think he made the Constitutional decision because, basically, what he said was the Congress can’t force you to do anything, but it can tax you if you don’t do it."

CURL: Roberts to the rescue for Romney - Washington Times

Thursday, June 28, 2012

ANALYSIS/OPINION:
Traitor! Turncoat! Benedict Arnold!
Those contemptuous epithets and more were hurled by Republicans and conservatives at Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. moments after he single-handedly saved Obamacare, joining liberals on the bench to break a 4-4 tie.
The Supreme Court has abandoned us," Texas Gov. Rick Perry declared. "Simply disappointing," Florida Gov. Rick Scott moaned. "Activist court," Rep. Michele Bachmann cried.
Even Ari Fleischer, the former spokesman for George W. Bush, who appointed Chief Justice Roberts to the court, joined in. "I miss Justice Harriet Miers," he whined.
But they all miss the point, and, more, by looking purely at the political, miss the forest for the trees.
In voting to uphold Mr. Obama's disastrous health-care overhaul, the chief justice took away the president's main line of attack that surely would have been deployed had the court voted 5-4, along party lines. The Divider in Chief, already bent on stoking cultural warfare — upper-middle class vs. lower-middle class, white against black against Hispanic, gay against straight, believers against non-believers — had no doubt hoped to win one more target for his bilious bifurcation.
Were the five justices appointed by Republican president to have stuck together in opposition, Mr. Obama would have toured the country (at taxpayer expense) to decry the court's action as nothing more than an act political usurpation — how dare those five men take away the will of the people?!
But Justice Roberts did just the opposite (and, bonus, also strictly adhere to the original intent of the Constitution). Obamacare is unconstitutional if it were to be enacted via the Commerce Clause, but not if it's simply a tax, the justice wrote. "Because the Constitution permits such a tax, it is not our role to forbid it, or to pass upon its wisdom or fairness."
In so doing, Justice Roberts has just busted Campaign 2012 wide open.

"It is not our job to protect the people..." Supreme Court Health Care Ruling: The Mandate Can Stay

Roberts:

"It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices."

Then whose damn job is it and why is there a Constitution that was meant to limit the power of government over the rights of the individual?! 


Supreme Court Health Care Ruling: The Mandate Can Stay - ABC News

MATT NEGRIN (@MattNegrin) and ARIANE DE VOGUE (@Arianedevogue)
June 28, 2012

In a landmark ruling with wide-ranging implications, the Supreme Court today upheld the so-called individual mandate requiring Americans to buy health insurance or pay a penalty, the key part of President Obama's signature health care law.
The court ruled 5 to 4, wiith Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the majority, that the mandate is unconstitutional under the Constitution's commerce clause, but it can stay as part of Congress's power under a taxing clause. The court said that the government will be allowed to tax people for not having health insurance.
"The Affordable Care Act's requirement that certain individuals pay a financial penalty for not obtaining health insurance may reasonably be characterized as a tax," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the ruling. "Because the Constitution permits such a tax, it is not our role to forbid it, or to pass upon its wisdom or fairness."

12:45 – Roberts: Not His Job to “Protect People from the Consequences of Their Political Choices”
Here’s a key quote from the decision by Chief Justice John Roberts, who says the court can’t protect Americans from their political decisions.
Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation’s elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.

Time to Dump all 2,700+ pages in Boston Harbor!!! - or any other place for trash! Republicans: Ruling focuses election on Obama's health care tax


And throw out the 12,000+ pages of initial regulations and taxes in the dumpster too.

That is the initial reaction, but come November, it will be the time to truly exercise democracy and get rid of all these taxing intruders and lifestyle insinuators!


Republicans: Ruling focuses election on Obama's health care tax - Washington Times


The Supreme Court handed President Obama a major political victory on his signature health-care issue Thursday, but the justices also provided Republicans with a sharper campaign issue by defining the law’s individual mandate as a tax.
The ruling allows Mr. Obama to engage in a four-month-long victory lap as he campaigns for reelection. And it validates the president’s decision to devote so much time and energy to passing the law in 2009 while the economy was in free fall, a divisive vote that contributed to Democrats losing the House in 2010.

Planners Inspired by Supreme Court Decision

This will be the aftermath in our not too distant future. 
The 'camel's nose, head and hump' is in our tent.

Planners Inspired by Supreme Court Decision » The Antiplanner

posted in News commentary |
Representatives of the Association of American Planners applauded the Supreme Court’s health-care decision that a Congressional requirement to buy health insurance was a tax, not a mandate. “This provides us the tools we need to fix everything that’s wrong with America,” said association CEO Paul “Precious” Farmlands.
The association’s government affairs staff immediately began crafting legislation to save American cities and rural areas through compact development. “We would like everyone to enjoy the benefits of living in high-density, mixed-use housing,” said Jason Georgetown. “But it’s not a mandate; we’ll simply tax anyone who chooses not to live in this kind of housing $50,000 a year. The taxes will go to make high-density housing more affordable for low-income people.”
AAP also was writing a law requiring everyone to walk, bicycle, or take transit to work. Anyone who refused to obey the law would pay a “tax” of $25 for every day they drove to work. The money would be used to subsidize rail transit. “The possibilities opened up by the Supreme Court’s health-care decision are endless,” said Georgetown.

Welcome Back George Orwell! Supreme Court upholds ObamaCare and Americans have lost the right to be left alone


We have now entered the Serfdom of Liberal-Fascist land that our founders were so set against. The Supreme Court ignores the Constitutional Limits proscribed and turns to the Washington Culture of Power and Central Planning as is primary rule.

Our only hope is mass refusal and vote out anyone who will not wholly repeal Obamacare!


Remember Kelo vs. New London CT. The Supreme Court demonstrated with that decision that it can never be trusted to uphold the right of individuals in the face of the abuse of the State. By the way, the Kelo land is now a weed infested vacant lot, Pfiser never built the complex that was touted as for the general good of the community over the property rights of the individual.
We can only hope for some positive outcome as happened after KeloThe Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision against Kelo and her neighbors sparked a nation-wide backlash against eminent domain abuse, leading eight state supreme courts and 43 state legislatures to strengthen protections for property rights. 


Supreme Court upholds ObamaCare and Americans have lost the right to be left alone | Fox News

Published June 28, 2011 
Editor's note: The National Federation of Independent Business joined with 26 states in the lawsuit against the 2010 Affordable Care Act. The author of this commentary, Karen Harned is the executive director of the National Federation of Independent Business Small Business Legal Center.
When President Obama signed the Patients Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly known as "ObamaCare" into law in 2010, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) decided that we had to take the fight to the Courts.  
We joined the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the health care law because, for months, we had heard from small business owners who were greatly concerned over the costs, the burdens and the impositions that the PPACA would bring. They believed it threatened their businesses, employees, families, and livelihoods. 
So we fought to the bitter end to keep their fears from playing out.  
Yet this case was about something bigger than health care policy, it was about preserving American liberty from the increasingly powerful hand of the federal government.  
Today marks a sad day in the history of America. With this decision, Americans have lost the right to be left alone, which Justice William O. Douglas once called “the beginning of all freedom.” 
It is painful to recognize that the liberties which our forefathers fought a revolution to secure have been lost.

A Staged Plan of Entrapment to Just Bolster Gun Control by a Gov't Out of Control - Fast and Furious: A Timeline

Fast and Furious: A Timeline - NRO Staff - National Review Online

By NRO Staff
June 28, 2012

2009
October 26. Department of Justice officials meet to discuss the problem of mounting violence in Mexico. They decide to change strategy, aiming to eliminate gun-trafficking pipelines. There is no mention of “gunwalking” during the meeting.
November. The operation is launched. It is designed and run by the ATF Phoenix field office.
In a gunwalking operation, guns bought by straw purchasers, individuals in America with clean records, for drug cartels are allowed to “walk” across the border into Mexico, instead of being seized by ATF agents.

The stated aim is for ATF agents to follow the paths of guns from straw purchasers through middlemen and into the hierarchy of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel. The tracked weapons are to be used as evidence to pin larger crimes against the cartel as they work to break it up or at least eliminate the gun-trafficking routes. According to whistleblowers and investigators, however, agents never made the attempt to actually trace the guns.
2010
January. Agents with the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force, a multi-agency network run by the Justice Department, are brought in to help. The manpower includes investigators from the Homeland Security Department, the Internal Revenue Service, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
The operation is soon named “Fast and Furious” by field agents because some suspects operate out of an auto-repair shop and street-race.
March. Some ATF agents are concerned that weapons distributed through gunwalking might be used for crimes in Mexico or even the United States.
October. The brother of the former state attorney general of Chihuahua, Mexico, is killed. The ATF learns that Fast and Furious weapons were found at the scene.
December 14. U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry is killed in a firefight while on patrol. The ATF would determine that two of the guns involved in the shooting came from Fast and Furious. The operation continues another six weeks.
Soon after Terry’s death, ATF agents speak with Senator Charles Grassley (R., Iowa), the ranking minority member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to seek his help in stopping the operation.
....

2011
July 4. ATF director Melson secretly meets with Issa and Grassley, explaining that the priority at the Department of Justice appears to be the protection of senior officials from political fallout.

Get Rid of the EPA with the UN - All Fail the EPA - Planet Gore

Among the lowest vermin on earth.
They both serve the same function. Legalized theft and extortion to no one's benefit but their own!
They know nothing and regulate everything.

All Hail the EPA Planet Gore - National Review Online
By Henry Payne   June 27, 2012
Tuesday the Washington Court of Appeals gave the EPA a blank check to run roughshod over U.S. industry without Congressional input. This breathtaking affirmation of an agency’s power over the U.S. economy is a timely reminder (in this week of Decision Obamacare) of how a narrow 5-4 Supreme Court ruling can profoundly change America’s economic landscape.

Just five years ago, in Massachusetts v. Environmental Protection Agency, five judges gave the EPA the power to regulate inert, non-toxic, non-particulate carbon dioxide (the gas human beings exhale) as a “pollutant” under the Clean Air Act — a clear violation of the intent of the Congressional legislation.

The Obama EPA since has jumped at the chance, ignoring Congressional reluctance to pass cap-and-trade legislation and establishing itself as a rogue agency tasked with fighting phantom global warming by dictating industrial CO2 emissions levels.
The EPA’s first victim was the auto industry —

Walter Cronkite the Most Boring Man in America

Decades of myths that are just big lies:

  • Kennedy, ranked as Number One President (said Arthur Schlesinger, Kennedy biographer, in his administration, Democrat activist and biased pollster of liberal historians)
  • New York Times, the Best Newspaper in the Country (according to the NY Times)
  • Cronkite, the most trusted man in America (Said CBS - see the following)
  • And of worst of all, "I'm from the Government and I'm here to help you."

Walter Cronkite wasn't the Most Trusted Man in America? Q&A with author Joseph Campbell - YouTube



Published on Jun 26, 2012 by 
"It's safe to say that Walter Cronkite was not the most trusted man in America, and it's safe to say he was not even the most trusted man among newsmen," says American University Professor Joseph Campbell, author of "Getting it Wrong".

Campbell says the 1972 survey that gave Cronkite the title of "Most Trusted Man" compared Cronkite with prominent politicians of the time, not newscasters, and so he "inevitably came out on top." He says CBS then used the survey results to promote the network.

"It was a way to tout Walter Cronkite as a source to go to for election coverage among the three networks," says Campbell.

Campbell sat down with ReasonTV's Nick Gillespie to discuss Cronkite and other myths propelled by the media.

d r i f t g l a s s: There Are Two Kinds of Writing

The first is the kind was described by Red Smith like this:

“Writing is easy. You just sit down at a typewriter and open a vein.”
The second is the kind done by people like Tom Friedman (from Gawker):
Thomas Friedman Writes His Only Column Again 

Hamilton Nolan

Fabulously wealthy CEO whisperer and newspaper columnist Thomas Friedman is little more than a human-shaped random word generator programmed with the "Computers and Internet" section of a fourth-grade vocabulary textbook and fitted with a mustache. He writes one single column, sometimes using different proper nouns or cycling through slightly new platitudes, in order to allow a new headline to be written. The Only Thomas Friedman Column That Exists—which ran right on schedule yesterday—opens like this:
TRAVELING in Europe last week, it seemed as if every other conversation ended with some form of this question: Why does it feel like so few leaders are capable of inspiring their people to meet the challenges of our day?
Whether traveling in Europe or Israel or Pakistan or The Arab Street, Thomas Friedman has astoundingly boring conversations with people who speak in vague, nonsensical phrases. He continues:
There are many explanations for this global leadership deficit, but I'd focus on two: one generational, one technological.
"There are many explanations for [broad phenomenon], but I'd focus on two: one [generational, cultural, or sociological], one [technological, biological, scientific, or economic]." Thomas Friedman knows how to write a freshman-year research paper at the last minute. 
...
The latter method of arranging words on a page -- the Friedman method -- requires absolutely no effort whatsoever, is devoted entirely to protecting the policies and privileges of the political and economic elite, pays astonishingly well, confers upon the writer world-wide prestige, and shapes both the parameters of public discourse and the thinking of powerful people.

Climate change key to collapse of ancient Indus civilization - Climate Hoax Now

Climate change key to collapse of ancient Indus civilization - Technology & Science - CBC News

Jun 25, 2012
Climate change was a key ingredient in the collapse of the ancient Harappan civilization almost 4,000 years ago, a new study suggests.
The Harrapans once occupied more than one million square kilometres of the plains of the Indus River in what is now a vast desert region that includes parts of Pakistan, northwest India and eastern Afghanistan.
The civilization extended from the Arabian Sea to the Ganges River and was the largest of the early urban societies along with those of Egypt and Mesopotamia.
An international, interdisciplinary team of geologists, archeologists, mathematicians and geomorphologists collected samples from the area once occupied by the little-known civilization over a period of five years and reconstructed the landscape and topography of the area.

Saving the Planet by never using soap and water - Ahmadinejad in Rio

The Rosett Report » Ahmadinejad in Rio

By Claudia Rosett On June 22, 2012
It is by now a scene so familiar it’s become routine. At your expense, dear taxpayers of the planet — and especially at the expense of all you colonialist, imperialist, capitalist taxpayers of the United States — the United Nations holds a huge gathering. Eminences and excellencies jet in from around the globe, and as they parade across the stage to make their statements, among those invited to the podium is Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Since his “election” in 2005, Ahmadinejad has appeared seven times at the annual openings of the General Assembly debates in New York, and will presumably pop up for an eighth roadshow in Manhattan, courtesy of the UN, this September. He has spoken at a 2008 conference of the Food and Agriculture Organization, in Rome; at a 2010 nonproliferation summit in New York; and of course in 2009 he was a star speaker at the Durban II bigoted conference on anti-bigotry, in Geneva.
And this week, when some 50,000 eminences, professional climate junketeers and other worthies carbon-emitted their way to Brazil for the UN’s Rio+20 conference [1] on “Sustainable Development,” there came, of course, that Ahmadinejad moment. Eighteen minutes and 16 seconds of Ahmadinejad, actually — you can watch it on video here [2] – in which UN authorities announced the “honor” of inviting “his excellency” to take the podium. The current leaders of the Free World — those would be the Canadian delegates — walk out. Maybe some others do, too. Still in the room is an audience that will applaud at the end of Ahmadinejad’s speech, and a presiding UN official who will thank him for it. Ahmadinejad ascends the stage, and with a multilateral backdrop of flags, before a lectern decked  out with the UN logo, he preens himself in the world spotlight. Webcast to the world, he addresses the chamber.
That’s the UN. That’s how it works. Never mind that Iran’s government, in mocking violation of sanctions imposed by the UN’s own Security Council, is enroute to producing nuclear weapons. Never mind that Iran’s regime, represented here by Ahmadinejad, sponsors terror networks around the globe, tortures and murders dissidents at home, and has led the modern world in juvenile executions. Never mind that Ahmadinejad has threatened to wipe the nation of Israel off the map. At the UN, all excellencies, however unexcellent, are invited to enjoy the prestige of the podium.
Does it matter? Does this routine really do any harm?
Yes, it matters.

MSNBC Host on the War on Terror (she's also a College Prof.): America Needed a Racial Enemy

Is College really worth a damn now?

MSNBC Host on the War on Terror: America Needed a Racial Enemy | FrontPage Magazine

By Mark Tapson On June 25, 2012 @ 12:45 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 32 Comments
Speaking last Monday at the Take Back the American Dream conference in Washington D.C., MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry shared an interesting progressive perspective on our response to the 9/11 attacks: namely, that they gave the United States the opportunity to once again wreak “horrific racial violence” against an imaginary enemy.
The three-day Take Back the American Dream Conference 2012 is a creation of former New Left radical Robert Borosage, founder, director, president and/or board member of various progressive organizations like the Institute for America’s Future and the Campaign for America’s Future (CAF), the organizers and hosts of the conference. CAF describes itself as “the strategy center for the progressive movement.” In addition to speakers like Borosage and Melissa Harris-Perry, the conference boasted leftist rock star Van Jones.
Ms. Harris-Perry, or Harris, or Perry – let’s just say MHP, as she goes by on her website –anchors the weekend Melissa Harris-Perry Show on the leftist mouthpiece MSNBC. A former neighbor to now-President Obama, MHP is also a Tulane Professor of Political Science, having previously served on the faculties of the University of Chicago and Princeton University after studying at Wake Forest, Duke and even seminary.
There must be something in the rarefied air of such prestigious academic institutions that renders its intellectuals incapable of acknowledging the reality that lesser mortals easily grasp. One doesn’t have to have a wall full of academic honors to see that on 9/11, America was attacked by a very real enemy who had openly declared war on us, had been waging it for many years before 9/11, and have been ever since. Apart from rabid conspiracy theorists and the lemmings brainwashed by the fact-challenged hatemongers at MSNBC, the average American sees this truth clearly. But progressive professors who aren’t satisfied with the simplicity of Occam’s Razor feel compelled to abandon inconvenient facts and shoehorn the sweep of history into their race-obsessed, anti-American theoretical constructs.
Thus for MHP, the obvious reality that Islamic fundamentalists are waging war against us isn’t enough.

The Strange case of Self Loathing - Peace Trains’ Jews Against Israel

Its not just Jews. Too many Americans do it.

Peace Trains’ Jews Against Israel | FrontPage Magazine

Karl Marx died long before the State of Israel was created. But what made the founder of Communism an anti-Zionist before Zionism was his opposition to the very idea of a Jewish identity. The explanation can be found in his writings. In the second of his two early essays, together known by the title “On the Jewish Question,” Marx made many antisemitic assertions, such as: “Money is the jealous god of Israel, beside which no other god may exist.” “In the final analysis, the emancipation of the Jews is the emancipation of mankind from Judaism.”
If one believes that mankind has to be emancipated (read it: liberated) from Judaism, one then insists that Jews be powerless and assimilated. That’s why the new Jewish Marxists have turned anti-Zionism into one of their very highest priorities.
From the 1970s, Israel’s universities and Western intellectual circles had become home to a new generation of Jewish intellectuals who demonize and boycott Israel, and ultimately undermine the survival of the Jewish people after the Holocaust.
More than 90% of the allegations of “Israeli war crimes” cited in the shameful Goldstone Report were provided by 16 NGOs who received close to $8 million from the New Israel Fund, an organization headed by former Meretz MK and neo-Marxist Professor Naomi Chazan.
The list of “deranged Jew-haters which, if listened to, will do nothing other than pave the way to the next calamity” (as the brave Caroline Glick once called them), is long and very rich. Steve Plaut has drawn up a thorough list of them for the Middle East Quarterly and in his Freedom Center pamphlet, Jewish Enablers of the War Against Israel.
Tel Aviv University students and professors recently commemorated the “Nakba,” the “catastrophe,” as the Arabs call the date of the creation of the State of Israel in 1948. Ayal Nir, a lecturer at Ben-Gurion University, in his Facebook page, called to “break the necks of right-wing activists.” Israeli Professor Shlomo Sand achieved celebrity status in Europe by publishing a book denying the existence of the Jewish people, while Professor Oren Yiftachel called Israel “a white… pure settlement colonial society.” Larry Derfner, a former senior staff writer for The Jerusalem Post, publicly stated that the killing of Israeli citizens was a justifiable weapon for Palestinians in order to overcome the “occupation.”
At the Ben-Gurion University, Neve Gordon accused the IDF of being “war criminals” and promoted the boycott of Israel in a Los Angeles Times editorial.

When his camapign sign looks like it says: 'FORWARD BACKWARDOBAMA.COM' We’re Just Not That Into Obama

Race is given as the reason for the backward part, as usual.
In that case, race was the reason for his election in 2008, wasn't it?
The reality is, most white people don't even pay attention to his race. They are too depressed by his overwhelming incompetence. Case in point, the same depression struck during Jimmy Carter's term.

We’re Just Not That Into Obama - Michael Barone - National Review Online
The president’s backers use race as an excuse for his ebbing support.

JUNE 25, 2012     By Michael Barone

As Barack Obama’s lead over Mitt Romney in the polls narrows, and his presumed fundraising advantage seems about to become a disadvantage, it’s alibi time for some of his backers.
His problem, they say, is that some voters don’t like him because he’s black. Or they don’t like his policies because they don’t like having a black president.
So, you see, if you don’t like Obamacare, it’s not because it threatens to take away your health insurance, or to deny coverage for some treatments. It’s because you don’t like black people.
This sort of thing seems to be getting more frequent, or at least more open. As White House Dossier writer Keith Koffler notes, HBO host Bill Maher accused Internet titan Matt Drudge of being animated by racism because he highlights anti-Obama stories.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asked former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown if Representative Darrell Issa’s treatment of Attorney General Eric Holder was “ethnic.” Brown said it was, and Matthews said some Republicans “talk down to the president and his friends.”
There’s an obvious problem with the racism alibi: Barack Obama has run for president before, and he won. Voters in 2008 knew he was black. Most of them voted for him. He carried 28 states and won 365 electoral votes.
Nationwide, he won 53 percent of the popular vote.

Holder Has Long Been Contemptible

The American Spectator : Holder Has Long Been Contemptible

Just don't let him resign before November 6.
While the House Oversight Committee has now recommended that Congress hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for his conduct during the Fast and Furious scandal, one could make the case that Holder has long held the American public in contempt.
After all, how many cabinet secretaries begin their tenure by callinghis fellow Americans "a nation of cowards" where it concerned the question of racism? Never mind that America has become a nation where racism is not only unacceptable but a nation where, outside of being called a murderer or a rapist, nothing is worse than being called a racist.
If anyone has behaved cowardly where it concerns racism, it is Holder. What can one say about a man who sees fit to drop a successfully prosecuted case of voter intimidation? If two members of the Ku Klux Klan had held a baton in front of polling station in Philadelphia, Mississippi, to intimidate black voters, Holder would have spared no effort to prosecute them. But when it comes to two members of the New Black Panthers holding a baton in front of polling station in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to intimidate white voters, Holder could not care less. During testimony before a House Appropriations Subcommittee hearing in March 2011, Holder said:
When you compare what people endured in the South in the '60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia… I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people.
No, the great disservice here is an Attorney General who does not comprehend the basic legal concept of "equal justice under law." Eric Holder is the Attorney General of the United States, not the Attorney General of his people

Everyone’s a Racist - Ian Tuttle - National Review Online

Avoiding the truth by scrapping the dictionaries


‘Here’s a little secret,” Keith Olbermann told viewers in 2010. “When racist white guys get together and they don’t want to be caught using any of the popular epithets that are in use every day in this country about black people . . . the racist white guys resort to euphemisms and code words.”
At least Olbermann acknowledged that not all white people are racist; but three and a half years into the first “post-racial” presidency, one might get that impression. Take the list Olbermann enumerated on air: “Cocky, flippant, punk, and especially, arrogant.” Last week, Congressional Black Caucus executive director Angela Rye added cool to the list: “Even cool, the term cool, could in some ways be deemed racial.”
Liberals have spent the past four years tearing out page after page of Merriam-Webster. “Articulate” and “bright” were forbidden early in the 2008 primary season, with Obama defenders dredging up a classy Chris Rock joke that “articulate” is “some s**t you say about retarded people that can talk.” But CNN, Legal Affairs, and other media outlets had bestowed the same compliment on John Edwards during his meteoric rise years before. A 2004 Slate headline called Edwards “bright and articulate and really, really youthful,” while Steve Benen wrote at the Carpetbagger Report in 2003 that “Edwards is a very bright, articulate, and aggressive lawmaker.”

The Banana Republic Book - Obama’s Great (South) American Novel

The Twenty-First Century "Roots."
His own "Three Cups of Corruption" that he wants us to swallow. Obama's ideas about what he can do to America has more to do with Hugo Chavez than the U. S. Presidency.
Ironically,  David Maraniss seems to still harbor Obama sycophancy. But the facts and David Maraniss's honesty could not cover up the blatant lies and self delusion of this impostor for a president. m/r

Obama’s Great American Novel - Mark Steyn - National Review Online

We’re too busy inventing ourselves to be interested in the truth.
By Mark Steyn
June 23, 2012

Courtesy of David Maraniss’s new book, we now know that yet another key prop of Barack Obama’s identity is false: His Kenyan grandfather was not brutally tortured or even non-brutally detained by his British colonial masters. The composite gram’pa joins an ever-swelling cast of characters from Barack’s “memoir” who, to put it discreetly, differ somewhat in reality from their bit parts in the grand Obama narrative. The best friend at school portrayed in Obama’s autobiography as “a symbol of young blackness” was, in fact, half Japanese, and not a close friend. The white girlfriend he took to an off-Broadway play that prompted an angry post-show exchange about race never saw the play, dated Obama in an entirely different time zone, and had no such world-historically significant conversation with him. His Indonesian step-grandfather supposedly killed by Dutch soldiers during his people’s valiant struggle against colonialism met his actual demise when he “fell off a chair at his home while trying to hang drapes.”
David Maraniss is no right-winger, and can’t understand why boorish non-literary types have seized on his book as evidence that the president of the United States is a Grade A phony. “It is a legitimate question about where the line is in memoir,” he told Soledad O’Brien on CNN. My Oxford dictionary defines “memoir” as “an historical account or biography written from personal knowledge.” And if Obama doesn’t have “personal knowledge” of his tortured grandfather, war-hero step-grandfather, and racially obsessed theater-buff girlfriend, who does? But in recent years, the Left has turned the fake memoir into one of the most prestigious literary genres: Oprah’s Book Club recommended James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces, hailed by Bret Easton Ellis as a “heartbreaking memoir” of “poetic honesty,” but subsequently revealed to be heavy on the “poetic” and rather light on the “honesty.” The “heartbreaking memoir” of a drug-addled street punk who got tossed in the slammer after brawling with cops while high on crack with his narco-hooker girlfriend proved to be the work of some suburban Pat Boone type with a couple of parking tickets. (I exaggerate, but not as much as he did.)
Oprah was also smitten by The Education of Little Tree, the heartwarmingly honest memoir of a Cherokee childhood which turned out to be concocted by a former Klansman whose only previous notable literary work was George Wallace’s “Segregation Forever” speech. Fragments: Memories of a Wartime Childhood is a heartbreakingly honest, poetically searing, searingly painful, painfully honest, etc. account of Binjamin Wilkomirski’s unimaginably horrific boyhood in the Jewish ghetto of Riga and the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz. After his memoir won America’s respected National Jewish Book Award, Mr. Wilkomirski was inevitably discovered to have been born in Switzerland and spent the war in a prosperous neighborhood of Zurich being raised by a nice middle-class couple.  He certainly had a deprived childhood, at least from the point of view of a literary agent pitching a memoir to a major publisher. But the “unimaginable” horror of his book turned out to be all too easily imagined. Fake memoirs have won the Nobel Peace Prize and are taught at Ivy League schools to the scions of middle-class families who take on six figure debts for the privilege (I, Rigoberta MenchĂș). They’re handed out by the Pentagon to senior officers embarking on a tour of Afghanistan (Greg Mortenson’s Three Cups of Tea) on the entirely reasonable grounds that a complete fantasy could hardly be less credible than current NATO strategy.
