New evidence in the RFK case?

New evidence? Nina Rhodes-Hughes (sometimes known as Nina Rhodes) was a television actress in the 1960s who was a witness to the RFK assassination, standing just a few feet away from the senator. The official FBI report says that she heard only 8 shots. But she claims that the report is wrong...
"What has to come out is that there was another shooter to my right," Rhodes-Hughes said in an exclusive interview with CNN. "The truth has got to be told. No more cover-ups."
In a response also filed in federal court in Los Angeles, the defense team led by New York attorney William Pepper contends that the FBI misrepresented Rhodes-Hughes' eyewitness account and that she actually had heard a total of 12 to 14 shots fired.

"She identified fifteen errors including the FBI alteration which quoted her as hearing only eight shots, which she explicitly denied was what she had told them," Sirhan's lawyers argued in February, citing a previously published statement from Rhodes-Hughes.
Rhodes-Hughes tells CNN the FBI's eight-shot claim is "completely false." She says the bureau "twisted" things she told two FBI agents when they interviewed her as an assassination witness in 1968, and she says Harris and her prosecutors are simply "parroting" the bureau's report.

"I never said eight shots. I never, never said it," Rhodes-Hughes told CNN. "But if the attorney general is saying it then she's going according to what the FBI chose to put into their report."

"There were more than eight shots," Rhodes-Hughes said by phone. She says that during the FBI interview in her Los Angeles home, one month after the assassination, she told the agents that she'd heard 12 to 14 shots. "There were at least 12, maybe 14. And I know there were because I heard the rhythm in my head," Rhodes-Hughes said. She says she believes senior FBI officials altered statements she made to the agents to "conform with what they wanted the public to believe, period."

"When they say only eight shots, the anger within me is so great that I practically -- I get very emotional because it is so untrue. It is so untrue," she said.
An analysis of a recently uncovered tape recording of the shooting detected at least 13 shot sounds erupting over a period of less than six seconds. The audiotape was recorded at the Ambassador Hotel by free-lance newspaper reporter Stanislaw Pruszynski and is the only known soundtrack of the assassination.

Audio expert Philip Van Praag told CNN that his analysis establishes the Pruszynski recording as authentic and the 13 sounds electronically detected on the recording as gunshots.

"The gunshots are established by virtue of my computer analysis of waveform patterns, which clearly distinguishes gunshots from other phenomena," he said in an e-mail. "This would include phenomena that to human hearing are often perceived as exploding firecrackers, popping camera flashbulbs or bursting balloons."
As I've mentioned in earlier posts, I used to know Ira Goldtein, one of the five non-fatally wounded victims shot that night. Although he was only a teen at the time, he was recording "actualities" (to use the then-current term of art) for a local news radio station. He had left his tape recorder behind when he followed RFK and his entourage through the kitchen. After the shooting, Ira went to retrieve his equipment; it was missing.

He always presumed that a dishonest individual simply helped himself to a free tape recorder, although it is difficult to believe that someone had petty theft on his mind on that occasion. I asked if the recorder was close enough to the shooting site to pick up the sounds of the gunshots. He said it was possible.

Back to CNN's story on Rhodes-Hughes:
Rhodes-Hughes says that after she entered the kitchen pantry's west entrance, she could see Kennedy in left profile, "greeting" well-wishers a few feet ahead of her. She says a moment later she was looking at the back of the senator's head, as he continued onward, when suddenly the first two or three shots were fired.

"I saw his left profile. And then, very, very quickly, he was through greeting, and he turned and went into the original direction that he was being ushered to," Rhodes-Hughes told CNN. "At that point, I saw the back of his head and part of his shoulders and back."

"My eyes were totally on him, and all of a sudden I started hearing popping sounds, which I thought at first were flashbulbs from a camera," she said. It was Rhodes-Hughes' account of Kennedy's movements in the pantry that Sirhan's lawyer Pepper focused on in particular when CNN asked him to comment on Rhodes-Hughes' account of the shooting.

"This observation is vital," said Pepper. "Her clear recollection of being some short distance behind the Senator and seeing his left profile and then seeing him quickly turning so that the back of his head was in her sight at the time the shooting began -- this reveals that the Senator was almost directly facing Sirhan just before he took three shots, from behind, in his back, and behind his right ear at powder burn range, making it impossible for Sirhan to have been Robert Kennedy's shooter," the defense attorney said in an e-mail to CNN. "It clearly evidences the existence of a second gunman who fired from below and upward at the Senator."

Rhodes-Hughes says that while she was behind Senator Kennedy, looking at the back of his head and hearing the first two or three gunshots, Kennedy did not appear to be struck by bullets at that point.

Still believing the first shots were merely flashbulbs, she says she then took her eyes off the senator, while turning leftward, and caught her first glimpse of Sirhan standing in front of Kennedy and to the candidate's left.
She told CNN that the 5-foot-5-inch tall Sirhan was propped up on a steam table, several feet ahead of her and slightly to her own left. Rhodes-Hughes says part of her view of Sirhan was obstructed and she could not see the gun in his hand but she says that, as soon as she caught sight of Sirhan, she then heard more shots coming from somewhere past her right side and near Kennedy. She told CNN that at that point she was hearing "much more rapid fire" than she initially had heard.
Rhodes-Hughes told CNN she heard gunshots coming from some place not far from her right side even while Sirhan was being subdued several feet in front of her. "During all of that time, there are shots coming to my right," she said. "People are falling around me. I see a man sliding down a wall. Then I see Senator Kennedy lying on the floor on his back, bleeding. And I remember screaming, 'Oh no! Oh, my God, no!' And the next thing I know, I'm ducking but also in complete shock as to what's going on.

"And then I passed out," she said.
Debunkers, of course, will argue that an earlier statement is preferable to later ones. The upholders of the official view always make a big stink about the "earlier is better" principle -- except, of course, when a latter-day statement proves convenient to their viewpoint. There is no reason why thinking people of the 21st century should have unshakable confidence in the honesty of Hoover's FBI in 1968 -- certainly not in a case involving the Kennedy family.

Rhodes-Hughes is not telling this story for the first time, although this may be the fullest published account of her experiences. Her recollection of 12 or more shots appears in Philip Melanson's 1997 book Shadow Play and in Shane O'Sullivan's Who Killed Bobby? It has been said that, back in 1968, she told a radio or television interviewer that she heard 12 shots; if so, I do not know the exact details. Perhaps a reader can provide them...?

The O'Sullivan volume is reviewed here -- and the review provides an excellent intro to the case as a whole.

One last thing: If any of you kids consider this post an occasion to spew conspiratorial nonsense about 9/11, don't expect your inanity to appear here. The RFK case is something real. I'm continually infuriated by attempts to discredit genuine research into the assassinations of the 1960s by flavoring it with Bizarro-world bullshit. When adults are talking, children should be neither seen nor heard.

Curious Scene at the Democrat Headquarters


There is a couple fascinating things about this picture. First, obviously, the space is up for lease - which is a surprise, because most democrats are up for sale to the highest bidder.

Second, the jackass in the sign looks like it is ready to kick the crap out of the Obama logo.

Interesting.

Hypocrisy accomplished.

It has been a year since O and his band of Navy Seals took down the tall Arab guy with the long beard. Of course, as is to be expected, Flipper and company do not like to be reminded about it. "Even Jimmy Carter would have given that order". Oh stop it! Flipper is so classless. Just days after the guy (Carter) gives him a compliment, he makes fun of the former President for making a courageous call (albeit a failed one) to save American citizens who were being held hostage in a foreign country.

Republicans are claiming that O is politicizing the killing of OBL and are outraged that an American president would politicize the war on terror. ---That sound you hear is me throwing up. I would like to take you back to the year 2003, and I want you to picture a certain president standing on an aircraft carrier and declaring that our mission in Iraq has been "accomplished".

How about a certain Mayor of a city that was attacked on September 11, 2001? He is a man who actually ran for president and based his entire campaign on his actions during that tragic time in the nation's history? And yet, republicans cry a river over O taking credit for killing OBL. Unbelievable!

But that's republicans for ya. I loved the oped in the Washington Post that I read about them:

"Rep. Allen West, a Florida Republican, was recently captured on video asserting that there are “78 to 81” Democrats in Congress who are members of the Communist Party. Of course, it’s not unusual for some renegade lawmaker from either side of the aisle to say something outrageous. What made West’s comment — right out of the McCarthyite playbook of the 1950s — so striking was the almost complete lack of condemnation from Republican congressional leaders or other major party figures, including the remaining presidential candidates.

It’s not that the GOP leadership agrees with West; it is that such extreme remarks and views are now taken for granted.

We have been studying Washington politics and Congress for more than 40 years, and never have we seen them this dysfunctional. In our past writings, we have criticized both parties when we believed it was warranted. Today, however, we have no choice but to acknowledge that the core of the problem lies with the Republican Party.

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

When one party moves this far from the mainstream, it makes it nearly impossible for the political system to deal constructively with the country’s challenges." [More] 

Yes, even something as simple as acknowledging the killing of the most wanted terrorist in the world becomes a problem.

This is not "dysfunctional", this is delusional.

Everything you need to know in two paragraphs

In a Salon interview, Michael Lind -- author of Land of Promise, an economic history of the United States -- offers an analysis worth quoting. I give you the question and the answer:
You’ve touched on an issue that I was going to ask you about – the extent to which history offers a route out of the current economic malaise. You talk about reforms, but where are the reforms going to come from today? Three years into the Obama presidency, not much has changed.

I think you have to get the timing right. The Civil War started in 1860-61, and the period of reform came to a conclusion in 1877 with the end of Reconstruction, so it came about over a 15-year period. It’s the same with the New Deal. Most of the New Deal reforms came in the late 1930s, and in some ways the Great Society reforms of the 1960s were simply the finishing touches to the New Deal, so there you had a 15- to 30-year reform period. A lot of people thought that when Barack Obama assumed the presidency he would be in the position of Franklin Roosevelt in 1932. But, arguably, he was more like [President Herbert] Hoover. In other words, the real wave of reform will come after him. I may be mistaken about this, but I think that no matter who wins the next election – even if the Republicans recapture the White House and control both houses of Congress – their stated program simply will fail. Even an all-Republican government will have no alternative than to undertake some alternatives to this program of tax cuts for everybody. It helps them when they’re out of power, but once they’re in power it is not a governing program.

One of the arguments of my book is that during these periods of reform, the reform tends to be bipartisan. So, for example, if you look after the Civil War when the Democrats captured both the White House and Congress at the time of President Cleveland, they did not reverse all the reforms of the Civil War; they ratified them. The same is true with the New Deal. Under Eisenhower and Nixon, who were the Republicans in the 40-year New Deal era, they did not attempt to overturn the New Deal. So it’s not a matter of left or right particularly, but of political paradigms which become dominant in a particular era. I may be mistaken, but I think that we are toward the end of this period of neo-liberalism, which began arguably with Jimmy Carter rather than Ronald Reagan, and has included Democrats like Bill Clinton and Obama in his first term as well as Republicans.
This is spot on. Krugman has said much the same about that 40 year period.

However, I'm in a cynical mood today, and I suspect that Lind has fallen into an error that many historians make: He thinks in terms of cycles, and he does not consider the possibility that modern technology may be used to impede the wheel's ability to revolve. I'm referring to the technology of propaganda, which has demonstrated such an astounding ability to compel men and women to act against their best interests. History cannot be recaptured if it is rewritten, and the revisionists have succeeded in convincing many young people that those 40 marvelous years were hell on Earth.

Moreover, at no other point in our past -- not even during the Civil War -- were so many powerful people intent on ending the American experiment. Even Jefferson Davis wanted to maintain the U.S. as a trading partner. Although he favored southern agrarianism, he did not want the north's manufacturing prowess to decline. I think both Davis and Lincoln would have agreed that our current course -- outsourcing, de-industrialization, destruction of our infrastructure -- is a form of self-destructive insanity.

We are now in the grip of a libertarian ideology which defines democracy as socialism. The ideologists ultimately intend to do away with democracy altogether, and to see this country carved up into constituent entities whose assets can be sold at rock-bottom prices to a handful of oligarchs.

Perhaps we should think in terms of cycles, but larger ones. Large enough to encompass the rise and fall and civilizations.

NASA Scientists Rebel Against Global Warming

By Douglas V. Gibbs

According to World Net Daily 49 former members of NASA, including astronauts, engineers, and scientists, have come to the conclusion that not only is the Global Warming scam a bunch of hooey, but that efforts by top executives of NASA to use the federal agency to promote the hysteria over the global warming lie is wrong.

In a letter to the NASA administrator, these great minds accuse NASA of endangering “the reputation of science itself” by advocating the “extreme” position that carbon dioxide is the major cause of climate change. According to the letter, the agency needs to “refrain from including unproven and unsupported remarks in its future releases” and contend that the claim “that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change” is “not substantiated.”

James Hansen, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, a division of NASA, stated in an interview with BBC Scotland that averting global warming was a “great moral issue”equivalent to slavery. He called for a worldwide tax on carbon emissions and advocated a ban on the construction of coal-fired power plants.

As evidenced by that statement, radical environmentalism is being used as a mechanism for control, tyrannical control over the population through government regulation.

Ice core samples have proven that carbon increases have historically happened after changes in temperature, showing that global warming does not cause a rise in carbon, but as a natural cycle, rises in temperature causes a rise in carbon. Greenland, which scientists are arguing is melting, used to be green, and in fact was the home of farming villages at one point in history.

Global Warming is caused by increased solar activity, rather than humanity.

If the Earth's climate is changing, it is a natural occurrence.

Are U.S. Stealth Fighters in Middle East A Sign America Is Preparing For War With Iran?

By Douglas V. Gibbs

In a surprise show of military presence in the Middle East, the Obama administration has deployed F-22 Raptors at Iran's back door.  The sophisticated stealth fighters are less than 200 miles from Iran's mainland, in the United Arab Emirates. The U.S. Air Force claims the jets in the Middle East are not for the purpose of preparing for war, and that these aircraft haven't even been combat-tested. The deployment, according to officials, is a normal deployment designed to strengthen military relationships, promote sovereign and regional security, improve combined tactical air operations and enhance interoperability of forces.

The exact mission, or how many planes have been deployed, has not been released.

With Iran arming up, with the rhetoric by Iran's leadership, and with suggestions that Israel may be preparing for a strike, one wonders if the military response is hiding the possibility that the aircraft are in the area specifically in case a confrontation between Iran and Israel becomes a reality.

Baseball Scramble Results in Child Crying In The Stands

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Honestly, I hate stories like this. It shows how fouled up our society has gotten. However, as you read, be reminded that I may not take the angle on this you may expect. . .

The story is that at a Texas Rangers Major League Baseball game a ball was tossed into the stands by Rangers First Baseman Mitch Moreland, and a couple grabbed the ball triumphantly as a little boy next to them, who wanted the ball too, burst into tears over missing out on the ball.  The couple, feeling bad, claims they were not aware of their surroundings, and if they had seen the crying child, they would have given him the ball.  The couple, soon to be married, already has seven children between them, and claim they are sensitive to the feelings of children. They love children, and would never hurt the feelings of a child intentionally.

Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay criticized them throughout the late innings of the Rangers' 7-3 win, describing them as "oblivious." The Internet reaction to the video that went viral Online was that the couple were villains.

How sad. How sad that this kind of crap is going on in our society. Tough, kid, you missed out. Life isn't fair. Quit whining and crying, and work to get a baseball next time. I am tired of our society bending over backwards worried about the precious self-esteem of the children of this nation. As a result of garbage like this, we are creating a society of weak whiners that have no idea how to deal with the harsh realities of life when they become adults.

This situation was a great opportunity for the parents of the child to explain how life works. Sometimes you get the baseball, and sometimes somebody quicker and bigger get it.

The boy did not earn the baseball, for he did not pull off getting it when it was tossed into the stands. Giving it to him because you feel bad he began to drop tears would have reinforced that whiny behavior. Do we really want a society of people that start crying every time they don't get what they want?

Don't give him the ball. Let him learn from this, and become more determined to get a baseball next time by improving his reflexes to give himself a fighting shot, or whatever else he decides to do to give himself a chance. We become successes because of our failures. We learn how to succeed by learning what not to do when we fail. That is life. It may seem harsh, but that is the reality.

If it would have been me in the stands, I would have kept the ball too, and I would not have felt guilty about the crying child next to me. I would have been satisfied that he is learning a valuable lesson in life. . . despite what the democrats want to convince you, there is no fair share, and life isn't fair. Grab the ball, or don't, that is up to you. If at first you don't get the baseball, try, try again. Don't start crying and expect it to be given to you.

Battle of Evermore

CISPA: Microsoft regains (some of) its cool

Windows 8 may indeed be a disaster, but so what? There's always W7. More importantly, Microsoft has decided to back away from supporting CISPA.
In response to queries from CNET, Microsoft, which has long been viewed as a supporter of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, said this evening that any law must allow "us to honor the privacy and security promises we make to our customers."
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, which has been active in an anti-CISPA coalition, welcomed Microsoft's new statement.
"We're excited to hear that Microsoft has acknowledged the serious privacy faults in CISPA," said Dan Auerbach, EFF staff technologist. "We hope that other companies will realize this is bad for users and also bad for companies who may be coerced into sharing information with the government."
This is undeniably good news. If privacy becomes hip, corporate America will have to fall in line.

Nobody really knows Apple's view on CISPA. Personally, I do not trust Apple. It's not a privacy-friendly company. The iPhone tracks you wherever you go, and you can't even take out the battery. The iPad (I've been granted the opportunity to play with one lately) is a great toy but not a computer to use if you're working on sensitive documents, since you can't plug a USB device into the damned thing. Sure, you can email the data to yourself; that's one way to get it onto your iPad. But doing so places the data on another server -- which mean that the NSA will scoop it right up.

If CISPA passes.

But (congressfolk and the NSA tell us) we have to do pass that legislation. We have to pass CISPA to...uh...uh...to protect the children.

Yeah, that's the ticket. The children. Why doesn't someone think of the children?

Also, terrorists. Something something terrorism yada yada Al Qaeda yada yada. And China. Something something China spying on all of our precious secrets must stop China yada yada.

So in conclusion, we really have no choice: CISPA!

What it means when Obama says, "I Was Not Born Wealthy"



By Douglas V. Gibbs

Whether Mitt Romney was Barack Obama's opponent in the upcoming presidential election, or not, Barry would still say he was not born wealthy. The claim of humble birth and upbringing is key to the Democrat Party's vote buying strategy, as well as the approach they are using in regards to fundamentally changing America. Romney, the son of a former auto executive, and governor of Michigan, having grown up in a very comfortable environment, is just a fantastic coincidence for Obama, and serves as a stark representation of the bourgeois. Obama, having been raised by a not-so-rich family (or so he claims), is representing himself as the candidate for the proletariat.

In Karl Marx's theory of communism, to belong to the bourgeois is to be a member of the property-owning class, and to believe in the hated system of capitalism; to be a proletarian, or a member of the proletariat, is to be a member of the propertyless class, a class of poor lower citizens, the class of industrial wage earners who must grind out a living by selling their labor. Revolution by the proletariat to bring down the bourgeois to make them contribute their fair share to society was the goal, for in a communal system all things must be equitable. Members of the ruling elite were the exception to the equity rule, tasked with the administration of the general will, a will of the people that allegedly only the ruling elite recognize.

In North Carolina Obama reminded the crowd earlier this week that he was not born wealthy, and this came a week after he told folks in Ohio he was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth.  Barry is a millionaire, but says his roots enables him to identify with college students and the families that struggle to make ends meet. He is constantly reminding us that he did not come from a family of means, so he understands the mountains of debt people face, the struggle to exist, the hardship of selling one's labor to survive.

Never mind the fact that Barack Obama has never worked for an honest wage a day in his life.

Why is Obama hammering on this? Why is Obama, who is actually quite wealthy, waging war against those who he says are in the 1%?

It all goes back to the battle between the bourgeois and the proletariat.

His speech in Elyria, Ohio gives us a clue to that fact.  Obama said, “I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn’t. But somebody gave us a chance -- just like these folks up here are looking for a chance.”

Barack Obama has a communitarian view of society. Communitarians hold that wealth is not created, but is finite. They believe when someone succeeds, someone at the bottom loses. He does not believe the pie gets bigger, or that there is enough pie for everyone as long as there are wealthy people around.

People like Obama view success as not being an achievement of the person, but rather a success only possible because of the contributions of the community along the way. They think personal achievement is not what leads to success, but that success is reached because of the helping hands along the way. They believe the wealth must be redistributed back to those that helped.

The Communitarianism Obama believes in is a Marxist idea.

The problem for Barack Obama is everyone does not see it that way. There are too many unique individuals out there that refuse to see government as being very beneficial much at all. Therefore, as with other past authoritarians in history, the democrats believe the youth of the nation must be taught the liberal way, and the best way to do that is to make sure they are all in the liberal public school system and college system for indoctrination.  They congratulate the foot soldiers of their regime, the teachers, for educating tomorrow's leaders, continuously pushing their policies into the schools, from collectivism to radical environmentalism, cramming as much liberal policy into the skulls of the children as they can so that by the time they graduate, they will be good little sheep and support the despotic leftist establishment.

Obama did not win the election in 2008 on his policies, and in fact he hid those inclinations quite well, only revealing them in small ways, or when confronted by people like Joe the Plumber.  He rose to power as a cult of personality. The media created a celebrity status for Barack, and the youth picked it up enthusiastically. Obama became the savior of America. He would bring fairness to the table, lower the rising sea levels, and unite a beleaguered America who had been besieged by the horrible Bush administration and his greedy, warmongering comrades.

In 2012, the messiah song and dance has grown old. The light-being has been revealed to be a fake and a failure, an ignorant charlatan hiding behind a curtain pulling a bunch of levers that do nothing but worsen the situation with a dull light show. The imagery that surrounded Obama's 2008 candidacy has fallen flat, and people have realized that his flash was nothing more than a fizzle, and now we have realized we need someone who knows more than how to organize a community.

The masses don't look up to Obama as some kind of god, anymore, and the liberal left is scrambling to return to that recipe. Michelle Obama recently told a Nashville audience that Obama "has brought us out of the dark and into the light."

From darkness into the light. From the dark founding of this nation by a bunch of rich, white slave owners into the brave new world of collectivism, led by an authoritarian system where the federal government protects us from the big bad bankers, big bad oil speculators, and from ourselves. The government, according to the liberals, will give you free stuff, take care of your health, make sure the smokers don't poison your air, make sure the corporations are properly censored and controlled, make sure through forcing upon you strong environmental and energy regulations that the planet is saved. . . and all you have to do is pledge your undying loyalty to The One, Barack Obama, for without him, we will descend back into a sort of dark age where rich people will plunge you into poverty, corporations will destroy the planet and the economy, and racists will go around shooting as many Trayvon Martins as they can.

America, without Barack Obama, we are being led to believe, is a downright mean country. Capitalism is designed to keep the rich wealthy, and make the poverty-stricken even more poor.

In his 2010 book "The Promise: President Obama, Year One," Jonathan Alter recounts a kind of transfiguration that occurred on Inauguration Day. St. John's Church on Lafayette Square was filled with dignitaries as well as the newly elected President and his family. When Bishop Vashti McKenzie, an advocate of black liberation theology, told everyone to rise, a rabbi in attendance described what he saw when he glanced over at Mr. Obama: A beam of morning light shown [sic] through the stained-glass windows and illuminated the president-elect's face. Several of the clergy and choir on the altar who also saw it marveled afterward about the presence of the Divine.

Barack Obama, the savior of the proletariat.

Judging by the words of Barack Obama, the President hates this nation as it was founded. He believes the Constitution was written in a manner to keep the rich rich, and the poor poor. The practice of only property owners being able to vote in the elections back then is a sign to him that the Founding Fathers were the bourgeois. This nation has been a racist, hell-hole for over 200 years, and as far as Barack is concerned, we have not, as a nation, begun to steer towards the light until the last three years, thanks to him.

Obama is sitting in the White House thinking that America still views him as The Messiah. He believes the opposition has been successfully relegated down to the level of extremists by his propaganda machine. Obama thinks that everyone hates America's founding as much as he does.

He has underestimated the American People.

Obama is a narcissist, and if you're a narcissist, you live in a dream world where you construct your own reality. For the purpose of the illusion, the world created is one without any sense of reality, or common sense. Obama believes everybody feels the same as he does about things. He believes everyone agrees with him when he determines the United States is guilty, racist, sexist, bigoted, and anything else he can come up with. The colonial history of America makes this nation guilty of being a part of the world's imperialistic past, and one that has done all it can to stomp all over the down-trodden, and keep the rich people's pockets full of gold and power.

A small portion of the population does agree with Obama and the democrat party. The enemies of America agree with him, and have infiltrated the institutions they believe they need to use to change this country at its very foundations. Thanks to the progressive liberal left, we are educating and importing communists and Marxists.

We did not begin as a nation teaching communism. We did not prosper promoting the redistribution of wealth. The problem is, if you were a socialist, communist, Marxist, liberal, or whatever you want to call it, you lived in the shadows because everyone knows that such an ideology is everything the founding of this nation wasn't.

They have come out of the shadows, they are fomenting revolution, and they are calling for the proletariat to rise up and proclaim the democrats the national party, and Obama the leader of the brave new America.

Obama believes he is doing good. He is succeeding, as far as he is concerned. He has accomplished a lot, creating division through racism, and economic class warfare, and now he has created a cry by Americans for peace and safety.

And according to Obama, these victories are not nearly as good as what he plans to do when he gets re-elected. As he told former Russian President Medvedev, after the election he'll be even more flexible when it comes to doing what he wants to do.

They are even working on stomping on the First Amendment right of free speech. Nancy Pelosi has indicated that it's time to allow Congress to regulate political speech, especially when it is engaged by corporations.

I suppose these superpacs that have emerged as a result of the Citizens United case has the democrats realizing they may lose the next election, and they are willing to take away free speech from certain groups to ensure they hang on to their power.

Obama is doing exactly what he intended to do, and he won't stop until your liberties are gone forever. In the process of convincing the proletariat to rise up against their bourgeois oppressors, he must convince the dependents upon the federal government that he is one of them, he is one with their fight, that he is not a member of the wealthy class they are fighting.

Then, once the socialist model is fully in place, he aims to be the man at the helm of the brave new America.

Obama is on a mission to fundamentally reform and transform this country. He doesn't like it the way it was founded. That is why he agrees with Reverend Wright, and Barack Obama Sr., and the way the communists  view this country.  Now, he is in a leadership position over the American System he hates so much. And what he is doing is not because he is in over his head, as some in the conservative media make it out to be. The job losses, stalling of economic growth, standing in the way of the Keystone Pipeline, the drilling moratoriums in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska, the rise of racial violence and the appearance of roving mobs egged on by people like Reverend Sharpton, the nationalization of private industries, and the punishments dealt out without due process against BP, the banks, and the oil speculators - none of what Obama is doing is accidental.

When Obama tells you he was not born wealthy, he is trying to play the people of America, and many want to believe him so bad that they look right past the obvious lie. He is pleased with himself, glad to deceive you, he is a grand manipulator and he is happy to use that gift if that is what it takes to force America to pay for what it has done. He believes this country to be guilty, unjust, immoral and in great need of being put in its place. He is the planner, the judge, jury and executioner. Obama sees himself as doing good, and his victories are the destruction of the system as founded.

Contrary to Obama's belief, you have not completely fallen for his deception. He's walking on thin ice. There is only a small percentage of the population that believes he's doing a good job.

Obama can't win this November on his record, because all that he has done in the eyes of informed voters has been destructive. The problem for Barry is that Obama needs his next four years. He needs his next four years to finish the transformation of America into his socialist model. To do that, he's gotta get elected in 2012.

Since Obama can't win on his record, he has to divide America even more, destroy his opposition, and convince America to hate the Republicans. The democrats plan to use the same playbook they always use, the one they used to convince people to hate Bush, the same playbook Obama used to win his Senate seat, and his State Senate seat. He is going to work to convince America that the Republicans are standing in the way of the progress he is promising, that it is the Republicans that created all of these problems, and if you let the GOP back in charge they will get rid of everything he has accomplished.  The democrats are excited about blaming the Republicans. That is what they do. What is amazing is the republican establishment didn't even see it coming. The GOP is still upset about the conservatives rising in their ranks to even notice what Obama is doing, and it may be possible that a number of the republicans are in on it.

The country is going to hell in a handbasket because of the ideas of the liberal democrats, the American people are upset, and it is all going to come down to how many people are willing to believe Obama's lie about being able to relate to the poor laborers, the people who aren't wealthy, the proletariat.

Obama has accomplished much of what he set out to do. . . divide America, and bring on the class warfare, the battle between the bourgeois, and the the proletariat. . . Revolution.

The Big R goes Native.

Haven't we done enough to the Native Americans in this country?

"Vernon Traversie, a Lakota elder, suffered a heart attack last August and was taken to Rapid City Regional Hospital for emergency surgery. Upon his return home after a two-week stay, he found that three Ks had been carved or burned into his abdomen.

In a statement to Last Real Indians, Traversie said: “I was supposed to have emergency surgery on my heart, but they (the hospital) had scheduling problems. Every night they would prep me for surgery, which went on for four or five days. Every night they would shave my chest and stomach and wouldn’t feed me.”

It wasn’t until a hospital employee came to his room and told him to take pictures of his abdomen and chest immediately upon getting home that Traversie realized that something had been done to him. The woman who gave him the advice told him she couldn’t testify on his behalf but her conscience dictated that she had to let him know.

Joyce Anderson, a retired surgical nurse who worked for nine years on the heart team at Baptist Hospital in Little Rock Arkansas, viewed the photographs of Traversie’s injuries and said, “It appears the area under the incision was done with a scalpel for drainage of the incision. The other wounds seem to be necrotic, meaning the tissue is dead. This could indicate the wounds were burned into his skin.”

According to Traversie, local law enforcement has done nothing about the matter and a doctor at a nearby medical facility said she could not make any statements regarding his injuries. After seven months of non-action by his Rapid City attorney, Traversie posted this video Vern Traversie’s Video to gain attention for the crime committed against him.

This is just the latest in a long and ugly history of hate crimes against Native Americans in Rapid City. In May of 2010, 22-year-old Christopher Capps, was shot multiple times by Pennington County Sheriff’s Deputy David Olson. Capps was allegedly reaching into his pocket for his cell phone at the time. He was unarmed.

There is a huge divide between Indians and whites in Rapid City. This latest incident involving Mr. Traversie may have been the result of a backlash to the shooting of three police officers by a young Native American man, Daniel Tiger, last August 5. Tiger was stopped for a traffic violation and inexplicably opened fire on the officers, shooting them in the head. One of the officers died at the scene. Native Americans in the community all agree that there is no excuse for Tiger’s actions, which ultimately resulted in his death. But one must ask: if Mr. Traversie’s injuries were some kind of statement, then what does it say about the doctors and nurses who were charged to care for a man who had just suffered a heart attack? What does it say about a city where no one does anything about it? What does it say about a society that doesn’t bother to report it, except in the Indian press?"(h/t Nancy Lockhart for this story)

If you can't trust health care workers who else can you trust?

"Oh come on Field, I am looking at that picture and I don't even see KKK in that man's stomach. Stop trying to create racism where racism doesn't exist."

Yes, because we have come so far in this country.




Marine Sergeant Gary Stein Other Than Honorable Discharge for Criticizing Obama

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Somebody asked me if Gary Stein's Other-than-Honorable Discharge was too severe of a punishment for a military member expressing a not-so-favorable opinion of the President of the United States on a website created by the service member, and upon which he reveals that he is a member of the United States Marine Corps.

Perhaps.

Personally, I think a punishment less than a discharge for career military personnel guilty of this kind of offense may be more appropriate, but if the punishment was handed down by someone even higher than the brass, then it is not something that can be challenged.

As a United States Navy Veteran, I am fully aware of the oath I took when I entered my military service, and the rules and regulations I was expected to follow. Like it or not, Constitutional protections do not factor into a person's military rules of conduct.  Article I, Section 8, Clause 14 in the United States Constitution indicates that Congress shall have the power "To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval forces." No matter how correct Gary Stein's assessment of Barack Obama's presidency was, and no matter how much he feels that every order by The President is an unlawful order because the man in the White House is not eligible to be President of the United States because of the fact that his father was not a citizen of the United States at the time of O'Barry's birth, like it or not Obama is the Commander in Chief, and as military members we are not to espouse political opinions as representatives of the branch of military service we serve in, no matter how correct those opinions may be.

Had Mr. Stein created a Facebook page, or blog, as an individual, without the fact that he is serving in the military attached, then as per the UCMJ, he would be perfectly safe to say anything he wanted about Barack Obama short of something stupid like assassination.

The Constitution does not apply to military personnel, as much as some people would like it to. Nobody has a constitutional right to serve in the military (as the opposition to "don't ask don't tell" falsely claimed), nobody has freedom of speech in the military (ask any recruit during boot camp), and nobody on base has any right to any kind of privacy (inspections kind of kill that whole idea). The purpose of such strict rules and regulations is so that the military forces do not become some mamsy-pamsy group of whiners claiming they have rights to everything. A member enters the military for the purpose of service to the United States that may include confrontation with an enemy. When in a situation where a member is squaring up against the enemy, the last thing anyone needs is hesitation, worries about one's rights, or political disagreements. None of that matters in battle. Training matters. Killing matters. Breaking stuff matters. That is war.

The Uniform Code of Military Justice is the service member's Constitution, and as much as I feel for United States Marine Sergeant Gary Stein, and as much as I believe an other-than-honorable discharge may be a little severe, he broke the rules. He went against the UCMJ. Punishment was handed down, and rather than acting like a victim, he needs to step up and admit he broke the rules.

Yes, it is ridiculous that someone is getting discharged for criticizing Barack Obama, and yes I know that there were cases in which members criticized George W. Bush during his presidency and nothing happened. There is a glaring double standard that exists, I am not denying that. But, the facts are the facts. I may agree with everything Stein had to say about Obama, for the most part, and I feel for him. It has to be very frustrating to serve your country for nearly ten years, plan to stay in uniform until retirement, and then be thrown out for having an opinion about a Marxist that is occupying the White House. The UCMJ, however, has spoken. Stein broke military rules and regulations, and he is paying dearly for his mistake.

Now, however, as a civilian, he can moan and groan about Obama all he wants. He will no longer be a representative of our fine United States Marine Corps. He is becoming the individual he wanted to be.

Marine Sergeant Discharged for Criticizing Obama: Was That Fair? - Christian Science Monitor/Yahoo News

Are Father, who ourt in heaven

These images have been around for a while, but for some reason, they are weighing on my thoughts today. Are they for real? Or should I say: Our they for real?

Has anyone done any research into the possibility that these signs are clever hoaxes perpetrated by liberals?

Now that would be a droll stunt. Normally, I do not favor deception operations (except on the first day of April). But if the results are really funny...



Regarding the yellow sign: What's with the hyphen connecting ARE and COUNTRY?

I have to give the sign-makers credit. They did not put needless quotation marks around any words. Alas, the cropping of the lower photo does not allow us to determine if AMERICANS is spelled AMERICAN'S.

The bagger message can be summed up in a sentence: "God" bles's are-country!

Government Invading Your Rights? Then Protect Your Rights...


"The invasion of private rights is chiefly to be apprehended, not from acts of Government contrary to the sense of its constituents, but from acts in which the Government is the mere instrument of the major number of the Constituents." --James Madison, letter to Thomas Jefferson, 1788

The members of government are the instruments that we as voters put into place. They are in Washington because we put them there. It is our responsibility to put into place good and virtuous leaders. If we don't, then the resulting tyranny is nobody's fault but our own. Vote them out, and replace them with people who will not act in such a way. And that includes who you vote in locally, for if you do not vote into place people who will respect and protect your private rights at the local level, how can you expect any different at the national level?

We like to complain about our political leaders, and we should hold them to high standards, but whose fault is it that the capitol if filled with bureaucrats that march around as if they are members of a ruling elite? Whose fault is it that Washington DC thinks it can run our lives, and is unconstitutionally dictating local issues?

If you don't like it, throw them out, and replace them with the right people.

It can be done. I am an optimist. Remember, that an elephant can be eaten, but it takes time - one bite at a time.

Picking on the meek.


As we get closer to election general election day 2012, we are starting to get a glimpse of what A-merry-ca will look like if republicans take congress, the senate, and the White House.

Here in Pistolvania the republican controlled legislature has already put a law into effect that will make it harder for grandma and grandpa to get food stamps.   
 
"HARRISBURG - The Pennsylvania Public Welfare Department will start asking food-stamp recipients next week to prove they do not have significant personal assets in order to qualify for benefits.

Advocates for the poor say the new policy will be expensive to administer and hurt families for whom the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program can be a lifeline. It goes into effect Tuesday, but it will be about six months before the department knows how many have lost benefits.

"The majority who will lose benefits - the significant majority - are seniors and people with disabilities," Julie Zaebst, policy center manager for the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger, said Friday. "In our experience, many of those folks are saving for medical expenses and funeral expenses."  [Source]

If you owe creditors money when the republicans start running things again, your credit might be the least of your problems.

Just look what their friends in the health care industry are doing to people who owe them money. And this is with Obamacare.

 "How did breast cancer survivor Lisa Lindsay end up behind bars? She didn't pay a medical bill -- one the Herrin, Ill., teaching assistant was told she didn't owe. "She got a $280 medical bill in error and was told she didn't have to pay it," The Associated Press reports. "But the bill was turned over to a collection agency, and eventually state troopers showed up at her home and took her to jail in handcuffs."

Although the U.S. abolished debtors' prisons in the 1830s, more than a third of U.S. states allow the police to haul people in who don't pay all manner of debts, from bills for health care services to credit card and auto loans. In parts of Illinois, debt collectors commonly use publicly funded courts, sheriff's deputies, and country jails to pressure people who owe even small amounts to pay up...  


Under the law, debtors aren't arrested for nonpayment, but rather for failing to respond to court hearings, pay legal fines, or otherwise showing "contempt of court" in connection with a creditor lawsuit. That loophole has lawmakers in the Illinois House of Representatives concerned enough to pass a bill in March that would make it illegal to send residents of the state to jail if they can't pay a debt. The measure awaits action in the senate.

"Creditors have been manipulating the court system to extract money from the unemployed, veterans, even seniors who rely solely on their benefits to get by each month,"
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan said last month in a statement voicing support for the legislation. "Too many people have been thrown in jail simply because they're too poor to pay their debts. We cannot allow these illegal abuses to continue." [Source]

If you think that our jails are overcrowded with you Negroes now, just wait until the republicans bring back debtors prisons. You Negroes just love to get s*** on credit and not pay for it.  

But it's not only Negroes, old people, and the sick, who are going to feel the wrath of my republican friends; young folks will be sharing in the misery as well.

I say this because Flipper's boy has a plan for student loans, and it is not good.

"The Ryan Budget Would Allow The Interest Rate For Student Loans To Double. “There was wide agreement among members of Congress Wednesday that loans and grants are important, but there were questions about the $6 billion Obama proposal that would hold interest rates constant next year. Ryan’s budget would allow the rate to double as planned.” [Inside Higher Ed, 3/29/12]

2012: Cuts Proposed Under The House Republican Budget Will Likely Target Programs Like Head Start, Pell Grants For College Students And State Aid.“Under pressure from House conservatives, Mr. Ryan cut nearly $20 billion from spending levels set in the debt-ceiling pact, breaking faith with the Senate and potentially leading to a government shutdown this fall. Much of that reduction is likely to come from programs like Head Start, Pell grants for college students and state aid.” [Source]

What you disadvantaged people need is a really good PAC.











Founding Truth and the Fate of the Nation

Did you miss Loki and I arguing over the fate of this nation, the Republican Party, and whether or not it is a tossing away of principles to vote for Romney?

That's Okay, we have it on Podcast. . . Founding Truth Radio on BlogTalkRadio

Let's face it -- Republicans really are shit

The GOP has a great idea. They want to chop food stamps to preserve military spending.

We have to abandon the "both parties are the same" narrative. Yes, the Dems have drifted from their principles -- but only to the degree that the entire country has drifted from sanity.

Ronald Reagan couldn't get the GOP nomination today: Too much of a lefty. Richard Nixon couldn't get the Democratic nomination today: Too much of a lefty.

In a zeitgeist like ours, of course you are going to get a lot of Dems who don't act like Dems. You can't blame a person for veering right if he's trapped on a boat going starboard; the best he can do is stay on the port side of the ship.

Under these circumstances, I'm surprised at the number of Dems who continue to stand by principle. Take CISPA for example: Yes, it was co-sponsored by a Democrat -- by a guy who is, literally, the NSA's congressman. (Also my congressman. But the boys and girls at Fort Meade have his attention in a way I never will.) It is also true that a couple of dozen House Democrats voted for this terrible assault on the Fourth Amendment.

But...

Fact 1: The vast majority of House Dems voted against CISPA.

Fact 2: The vast majority of Republicans voted in favor.

Fact 1 and fact 2 tell us that the two parties are still very different animals. Anyone who says otherwise is either a blinkered ideologue or a Rovian ratfucker.

Fact 2 also tells us that when teabagger Republicans talk the libertarian talk, they care about just one aspect of the ideology: The part where Wall Street gets to control everything. Baggers don't give a damn about anything else -- privacy, anti-imperialism, separation of church and state -- that traditional libertarians claim to favor.

If you scan the comments on right-wing blogs, you'll probably encounter quite a few Republicans disavowing Dubya and his stupid wars. Those disavowals come from the perspective of libertarian isolationism -- an honorable stance, if held sincerely. But it's all a pose. It's phony. Everyone knows that if Romney gets into power, he'll seek any excuse to launch an attack on Iran. When he does, those very same Republican rank-and-filers will retreat to their 2003 position: They will wave the flag and they'll accuse anti-war liberals of not supporting our troops.

If you haven't read it yet, run your eyes across this important piece by Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein. A lot of people are talking about it.
On financial stabilization and economic recovery, on deficits and debt, on climate change and health-care reform, Republicans have been the force behind the widening ideological gaps and the strategic use of partisanship. In the presidential campaign and in Congress, GOP leaders have embraced fanciful policies on taxes and spending, kowtowing to their party’s most strident voices.

Republicans often dismiss nonpartisan analyses of the nature of problems and the impact of policies when those assessments don’t fit their ideology. In the face of the deepest economic downturn since the Great Depression, the party’s leaders and their outside acolytes insisted on obeisance to a supply-side view of economic growth — thus fulfilling Norquist’s pledge — while ignoring contrary considerations.
And seven Republican co-sponsors of a Senate resolution to create a debt-reduction panel voted in January 2010 against their own resolution, solely to keep it from getting to the 60-vote threshold Republicans demanded and thus denying the president a seeming victory.

This attitude filters down far deeper than the party leadership. Rank-and-file GOP voters endorse the strategy that the party’s elites have adopted, eschewing compromise to solve problems and insisting on principle, even if it leads to gridlock. Democratic voters, by contrast, along with self-identified independents, are more likely to favor deal-making over deadlock.
I would like to argue in favor of the spirit of compromise, but that time is past. The Republicans never compromise on anything; they simply demand compromise of others. And even when that compromise occurs, GOP propagandists will continue to pretend that liberals are extremists. They will continue to say that all moderates are really liberals, and all liberals are really socialists, and all socialists are really commies.

The either/or, off/on, "shirts versus skins" mentality is hard-wired into their skulls. Perhaps into all of our skulls, by this point.

The Republicans insist on war. There is nothing for it but to engage them on that level.

I just wish we had a Democratic warrior as president.
