The New York Times report specifically states that their source was inside the room with President Obama’s national security apparatus as they made decisions. The leaked information could only have come from someone in a small advisory capacity within a select and exclusive group of Administration National Security Officials.
Knowing that fact based information what Position does Captain Underpants take?
Why no, despite proof the leaks can only have come from inside the White House, the leaks cannot have come from the inside the White House.

It would be easier to weave straw into gold than Axelrod’s duckspeak into a coherent answer.
Recently the Atlanta Journal Constitution ran a front page article on the suit.
Georgia has incredibly difficult barriers to ballot access for “third” parties.
Below is an excerpt from the press release:
ATLANTA, GA – The Constitution Party of Georgia and the Green Party of Georgia filed a federal lawsuit on Friday attempting to force Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, to list their Presidential candidates on the 2012 ballot. The lawsuit is similar to recent suits that were successful in Ohio and Tennessee.
The parties’ Presidential candidates have been listed in more than 40 states during some previous elections but have never appeared on the ballot in Georgia. For Georgia elections the candidate names must be written in on the ballot. Questions have arisen in the past as to whether the state has counted these write-in votes correctly and completely as required…
… Georgia has the most restrictive ballot access laws in the country for certain races according to Ballot Access News. In 2011, Rep. “Rusty” Kidd introduced H.B. 494 to eliminate petitioning and this year the Election Advisory Council (EAC) for the Secretary of State voted to reduce the requirements. However, Government Affairs Committee Chairman, Mark Hamilton, under direction of Speaker David Ralston, blocked a hearing for H.B. 494 and removed the EAC recommendations from legislation that was eventually passed.
HB 111 now resides in the Senate finance committee…
Time is getting short, and if this critical bill doesn’t move soon there is a chance it will die in committee. We have worked too hard for too long to allow this to happen.
Please send the reminder – or one of your own – shown below to your Senator. This is ESPECIALLY important if your Senator is on the Senate Finance Committee. Let them know that you want them to use their power to get Restaurant Carry (HB 111) to the Senate floor for passage.

Suggested Subject: Act Now to Move Restaurant Carry
Forty-four other states already have some form of restaurant carry. It is past time for North Carolina to join this group. Restaurants see more than their share of violent crime, and law-abiding citizens have a right to protect themselves and their families everywhere within our state.
As my Senator I respectfully ask that you do all in your power to move HB 111 to the Senate floor for a vote.
I will be following progress through Grass Roots North Carolina alerts.

Cast: Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, George Soros, Maxine Waters, Moveon.org and Louis Farrakhan in their own words. Yes. These are their actual words.
In our previous article, “Exonerating President Obama”, we noted that the only Supreme Court precedent for the meaning of the term “natural born Citizen” in Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution appears to be the Judge Harlan dissent in the United States v. Wong Kim Ark case. In collaboration with a constitutional attorney, we have examined the subject matter further.
We believe that to understand the complexity of this issue it will be essential to have an understanding of the place that the concepts of “Natural Law” and the book titled Law of Nations had obtained in the run up to the War of Independence with Great Britain. These concepts of natural law were commonly used throughout the colonies to explain, defend and justify the colonists’ contentions in our dispute with Great Britain. Our investigation leaves no doubt that the Founding Fathers of our nation clearly understood the meaning of the term “natural born Citizen” and its relation to Natural Law and Law of Nations. When you have finished studying our research you will also understand that these terms were used in the Declaration of Independence as well as in our Constitution and in the constitutions of a large number of states written at the same time as the Constitutional Convention was in session.
This background understanding will clarify why the delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention elected to include “natural born Citizen” in the eligibility requirements for the Office of the President of our nation and what it truly means.
In this article we will prove beyond all doubt that Barack Hussein Obama is not a natural born Citizen and is thus ineligible to be President of the United States.

The North Carolina monument on South Mountain is about 1000 feet south of the Garland and Reno monuments off Reno Monument Road. See map
From the front of the monument:
In memory of the North Carolinians who fought at or near here September 14, 1862. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 20th, 23rd, 30th Infantry and Manly's and Reilly's Battery, 1st NC Artillery.
General D. H. Hill was in command of the Confederates with elements of Longstreet's Corps arriving in the afternoon. The fighting here at Fox's Gap saw one of the few instances of actual hand-to-hand combat of the war. The 13th NC was totally surrounded after the mortal wounding of Brig. Gen. Samuel Garland just a few yards from here. Two days after the battle, 58 Confederate dead were dumped down the well of Daniel Wise located NW. In 1874, they were reinterred in Hagerstown, MD.
From the rear:
Driven back from the front, the enemy falling back through Wise's garden, were met by our line coming up from the rear in the flank, and a terrific fight ensued. The color bearer of a Confederate regiment jumped up on the rear wall of the garden, and defiantly waving his flag, refused the many calls to surrender which he received, was shot and fell inside the garden wall. Private Hoagland of my company jumped over the fence and secured the flag. Lt. Col. Coleman of the 11th, who was present, and who had called upon the man to surrender, ordered Hoagland to deliver the flag to him, and afterwards claimed credit of its capture.

So our local monument to the Lost Cause has been, well, lost.
Yeah, the irony goes down about as well as hardtack.
You know, that would be funny if it weren't so sad.
On Dec. 20, 2010, the Fort Sumter Fort Moultrie Historical Trust, the National Park Service and the city rectified a long-standing oversight and put up a historical marker at the site of Institute Hall.
That building — once Charleston's grandest meeting hall — is where delegates in 1860 signed the Ordinance of Secession, setting into motion Our Late Unpleasantness.
It was a valuable marker because a lot of folks never knew where this happened, seeing as how Institute Hall burned down a year after the ordinance was signed. Which wasn't a good sign for the Confederacy.
The marker told the story of secession and, on one side, said “The Union is Dissolved!” in homage to the famous edition of the Charleston Mercury.
It was a good-looking sign.
So it wasn't too surprising when, a couple of months ago, it was history.
A moving target
At first, officials figured this was a case of “round up the usual suspects.”
The North Carolina man visited by armed EPA agents after sending an email to a controversial agency official says he's not satisfied with the explanations about what he considers an excessive response and that he wants changes to agency policies and procedures.
"This isn't over," Keller said.
He told Fox News.com that Environmental Protection Agency officials have said the agency followed procedures and that the agents acted appropriately during their visit last month. However, Keller is still invited to come to EPA headquarters to discuss the situation.
Keller said he's not willing to come to Washington without knowing what will be discussed.
The incident unfolded after Keller sent an email April 27 to the EPA to try to reach Al Armendariz -- a regional administrator who was under fire for a YouTube video post days earlier in which he said his enforcement strategy was to "crucify" executives from big oil and gas companies.
The letter to an EPA external affairs director read "Do you have Mr. Armendariz's contact information so we can say hello? - Regards- Larry Keller."

Israel is placing nuclear-tipped cruise missiles on submarines supplied by Germany, according to a new report — assuring a retaliatory capability following a nuclear attack from Iran.
The German news weekly Der Spiegel disclosed that Berlin had until now denied any knowledge that Israeli submarines, largely financed by Germany, were being used as part of an Israeli atomic arsenal.
But former high-ranking officials of the German defense ministry told Der Spiegel that the government had long assumed that Israel was putting nuclear warheads on the Dolphin-class vessels.
Germany has supplied Israel with three Dolphin-class subs, footing most of the bill, and another three are scheduled to be delivered by 2017.
In Israel, foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor told AFP: "I can confirm that we have German submarines. It's no secret. As for the rest, I am not in a position to talk about their capacity.”
A spokesman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the submarines had been delivered unarmed and stated: "The federal government will not speculate on subsequent arming.”
Israel fears an attack from arch-foe Iran if the Islamic Republic obtains nuclear weapons, and like the United States has refused to rule out bombing Iranian nuclear sites.
Der Spiegel quoted Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak as saying: “The Germans can be proud to have ensured the existence of the state of Israel for several years to come."
