The White House And Media Fail To Spin Away The Truth About Obama's Birth

President Barack Obama has lost legitimacy and universal justice demands that he step down and answer for his crimes against America and humanity.'s release of a 1991 literary biography of President Barack Obama by his literary agent was another nail in the coffin of the legitimacy and credibility of the Obama presidency.

There is concrete evidence that Obama was born in Kenya. The horse's mouth has spoken. Barack Obama's presence in the White House symbolizes the death of America and the American Constitution.

Not everybody in America and the world has been hoodwinked by the Obama administration and the American media. And not every state in the union is willingly surrendering American sovereignty to international private interests and participating in the destruction of the American Constitution. Arizona has made Obama's fraudulent birth certificate a ballot issue.

In a just and honest America, Obama would be kicked out of the White House with his tail between his legs. This little devil has committed crimes against America, and crimes against humanity.

President Obama has created an allure and mystique around his life before politics and consequently contributed to the public controversy about his birthplace. He has made his bed with unstable materials and he will fall on his ass because of it.

As the end of his first term nears, questions about Obama's birthplace have been put to rest. This is no longer a silly controversy or a conspiracy theory that can be laughed away in late show comedy sketches on television. The force of truth is unbreakable and unshakable. The tools of mockery, deflection, and humour are powerless against it.

All sensible, honest, moral, and honourable people recognize that Obama is a fraud and a liar who should be impeached and put away for life. The blind and obedient followers of Obama are hugging onto Obama's legs and screaming like mad: "It's not true! It's not true! My master would never lie to me. You are all paranoid nuts!" Obama's true believers and mindless followers will defend their master unto death.

"According to the Constitution, the Legislature does not have the right to judge the guilt or innocence of a person, be they a citizen or not. According to the Constitution, the Executive [branch] does not have the right to judge the guilt or innocence of a person, be they a citizen or not. According to the Constitution’s separation of powers, only the Judiciary has the right to determine guilt or innocence.

Black Churches Denounce NAACP Gay Marriage Stance

A coalition of black churches has denounced a move by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to endorse same-sex marriage.

The NAACP passed a resolution this weekend endorsing same-sex marriage as a civil right and opposing any efforts to "codify discrimination or hatred into the law."

The action comes a week after President Barack Obama came out in support of gay marriage.

The NAACP's board voted at a leadership retreat in Miami to back a resolution supporting marriage equality, "calling the position consistent with the equal protection provision of the U.S. Constitution."

"The mission of the NAACP has always been to ensure political, social, and economic equality for all people," Chairwoman Roslyn M. Brock said in a statement.

"Civil marriage is a civil right and a matter of civil law. The NAACP's support for marriage quality is deeply rooted in the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution and equal protection of all people," NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said.

Rev. Anthony Evans, with the National Black Church Initiative, opposed the president's and the NAACP's endorsements of same-sex marriage. He warned that Obama and the NAACP will lose support among black churches for their stand.

Protesting Eric Holder over Fast and Furious at Harvard Law

Eric Holder has been selected as Harvard Law School’s Class Day Speaker. I don’t remember if there was a Class Day when I was there, but I would not have attended anyway for reasons already known to readers.

Holder will be greeted with posters protesting Holder’s stalling of the congressional investigation into Fast and Furious. The protest is being run by student(s) behind a website called Harvard Law Unbound.

The title of the website is a take-off on Unbound – Harvard Journal of the Legal Left, which Professor Bainbridge has listed as a contender for “the least necessary organization in the law school world.” Having scrolled through its website, I’d say Prof. Bainbridge was far too nice. Prof. Jonathan Adler found this early nugget:

Ultimately, I propose that it is irrelevant whether the stories I tell here are “true,” as in fair or “factually” accurate. I see them through my own set of values and my social location as a white, heterosexual woman. I put the spin of my own brain and heart on them. I admit that right now.

Havard Law Unbound has been plastering Harvard Law bulletin boards with a variety of anti-Big Law posters this spring, and now has turned its attention to Holder’s appearance on Wednesday with posters such as this one:

Today we launch a new Unbound Campaign: “Think Bigger: Help Hold Eric Holder Accountable for ‘Fast and Furious.”

This is our first four-poster campaign. As before, posters will be going up on bulletin boards throughout the Law School to publicize some of the issues brought to the fore by Eric Holder’s visit to the campus this Wednesday.

I know the calendar says that summer has not started yet but from the way it looks and feels outside I think it's arrived already.

Sunshine, hot, green, sultry, crows hollering, rabbits hopping around, new born calves bellowing, hydrangeas blooming, fish jumping, gardens growing, people wiping sweat off their faces. Now what does that tell you?

What else would you expect out of a Tennessee summer?

The band is getting ready to go into our heavy touring season when we bring out the stage fans and sunglasses and making sure there's plenty of water iced down, and that's got to mean it's summer time.

Dean took the Twin Pines Rambler (that's the name of my bus) to the shop today to make sure all the air conditioners are working good and Hazel has turned the ceiling fans on in the house, must be summer time.

The bullfrogs at the big pond at the bottom of the hill are singing the bass parts to the symphony the katydids and the other night critters are performing and last night a whippoorwill joined in, sure sounded like a summer evening.

I'm wearing shorts and tee shirts and going on the back porch with just my socks on, and Brud's dog is hanging out in my garage to get out of the sun and we're needing rain and the mosquitos are out and the little yellow finches are back in the yard.

People are planning vacations, they're advertising the wonders of Branson, Missouri, baseball is on TV every night, the big yellow school buses are getting ready to go into moth balls for a couple of months, fresh vegetables are starting to show up.

Kids are slurping Icees, the lights at the softball fields are coming on, barbeque grills are smoking, the roads are full of long distance bicycles, bass rigs headed for the lake, convertible tops are coming down and night crawlers are selling like hot cakes.

Water parks are gearing up, golf courses are filling up, there's a run on hot dogs and ice cream companies are licking their chops.

The countryside is filled with the rumble of tractors pulling bush hogs and the city streets are inundated with the sound of lawn mowers.

Out in Colorado, the Bar D Chuck Wagon is getting ready to put the steaks on the grill and the Bar D Wranglers are getting ready to take the stage for their forty-somethingth straight year.

Up in Alaska the salmon will be making their way up the Kenai River full of roe and fight for somebody lucky enough to tie into a big un.

It's time for bikinis and sunscreen, watermelon and fireworks and bare chested good ol' boys sitting in the bleachers at a NASCAR race.

I don't care what the calendar says y'all, it's summertime.

Enjoy it.

And let's remember to pray for our troops, the temperature in Iraq can get up to 128 degrees in the summer time.

What do you think?

Netanyahu Warns Israel of African “Infiltration”

David Yeagley @ American Renaissance 2012

Facing the classic threat of a hostile ethnic take-over, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently warned Israel that the nation could be overcome by African “infiltrators.” Even as Kosovo was usurped by massive Albanian Muslims immigrants, Israel could be lost to the subversive effects of uncontrolled influx of African population.

Surely, such a statement must have broken the hearts of all the liberal Jews in the world. But, when reality collides with ideology, one has to choose one’s preferences. Reality demands it. Though ideology, especially liberal ideology, works methodically against nature and reality, in the end, liberals have to face the self-destruction their ideology has engendered.

Interestingly, the AP wire on Netanyahu’s statements shows how the liberal reporter struggles to tell the true story. “African migrants” is the term in the headline. “Infiltrators” is the word Netanyahu used (as later quoted by the reporter, in fact). Israel’s Haaretz posts the headline: Netanyahu: Israel could be overrun by African infiltrators The ‘moderate’ Haaretz story is nevertheless much more forceful.

Netanyahu praises the border fence being built in southern Israel (–the AP mentioned neither the praise nor the fence). The crime (rape noted specifically) brought in by “the phenomenon of illegal infiltrators from Africa is extremely serious and threatens Israel’s social fabric and national security.”

“If we don’t stop the problem, 60,000 infiltrators are liable to become 600,000, and cause the negation of the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.”

Netanyahu also said it was vital to “physically remove the infiltrators. We must crack down and mete out tougher punishments.”

Now, the liberal element is Israel interprets the existence of Israel as a haven created for Holocaust survivors, and, by ideological extension, must invite anyone who claims oppression–even from poverty itself, to share in the bounties of Israel.

Sharing can be suicidal.

Are the fountains of charity everlasting? Are liberals like the Almighty? Are no people to pay the price of their own errors? Is Africa innocent?

The AP wire does not identify the “infiltrators” other than “African.” The Haaretz article, however, is explicit. Yishai said, of liberal justification for the infiltrators:

“All these stupidities will bring us the births of hundreds of people and we can bury the Zionist dream,” he said. “Jobs will just root them here … and this suggestion will only bring hundreds of thousands more here.”

But then the professional liberals reportedly retorted:

The United Nations High Commission for Refugees refutes Yishai’s claim that “only a fraction of [the migrants] are defined as refugees, and whoever is designated a refugee gets [residency] status.” UNHCR says that between 40,000-45,000 asylum-seekers here are from Eritrea, 15,000 are from Sudan and another 6,000 are from other countries to which repatriation isn’t currently possible.

So, the truth comes out. These are raw Africans, not the traditional Ethiopian claimants to Solomon’s throne. So, apparently one scam leads to a worse one. Many of these must be Muslim! Thus, Netanyahu uses the word “infiltrators.”

The liberals want the illegal infiltrators to be housed in good neighborhoods and given the best treatment. Interior Minister Eli Yishai “said that most African migrants are criminals and that all, ‘without exception,’ should be arrested and deported.”

Serbian Election II: The End of the Beginning

Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning, quipped Churchill in November 1942, following Montgomery’s modest success at El Alamein. The same applies to Tomislav Nikolić’s victory in the second round of Serbia’s presidential election last Sunday.

The defeat of Boris Tadić—amply and inappropriately assisted in the final stages of his campaign by the unspeakable, greasy-haired, gay-pride-marching U.S. ambassadress Mary Worlick—is certainly not the end of the global-imperial lethal grip on Serbia. It is to be hoped that is heralds the beginning of its end, but it certainly is the end of the “pro-Western” regime’s four-year-long exercise in self-abasement abroad and ruthless robbery at home.

The robbery included the regime’s theft of some hundreds of thousands of opposition votes following the parliamentary election on May 6. For reasons too technically complex to elucidate here—the seedy details are available to the curious (provided they are not faint of heart)—the ruling coalition of thieves and traitors seems poised to form the next government of this long-suffering land, regardless of Sunday’s presidential race upset. That upset was only made possible by the fact that in a two-candidate race it is much, much harder to engineer the wholesale robbery (nearing 7 percent of all votes cast) that we have witnessed in the multi-party ballot on May 6.

Dear President Obama: Put Up or Shut Up!

Godfather Politics

Dear President Barack Obama,

As a citizen of the United States, I am guaranteed the right to demand that you prove that you meet the qualifications to serve as President of the United States. The First Amendment says that I not only have the right to free speech, but I also have the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances and I am exercising those rights here and now.

Ever since you announced your candidacy for president back in 2007, there have been questions about your birth and whether or not you actually meet the requirements of being a natural born citizen. Five years later, there is still a cloud of controversy surrounding your eligibility and you have done nothing to make that cloud go away. In fact, all you have done is to make the cloud grow bigger and denser by not only refusing to give proof of your eligibility but by your efforts to hide and protect your background.

I could spell out all of the questions and uncertainties surrounding your eligibility, but you know what they are.

My grievance that I would like to address is with your refusal to comply with the U.S. Constitution, federal and state laws that demand that you provide the necessary documentation required to prove your eligibility. If you do meet the eligibility requirements, then why have you gone to such extremes to hide your information? Why did the state of Hawaii have to pass legislation specifically designed to hide your records?

If you have nothing to hide, they why are you hiding it? Your actions appear to be those of a guilty person with something to hide rather than an innocent law abiding citizen. If you are legally eligible to be president, then one would think that you would want to release your records to make this controversy go away. Instead, you hide them like a person who doesn’t want the truth known.

Therefore, as a citizen of the United States of America, I demand that you release your records and prove to the country that you are eligible to be president.

Five charged in mob attack at Tinley Park restaurant

Officials: Tinley Park melee begun by protesters targeting alleged white supremacists

Five men have been charged in connection with a mob attack at the Ashford House Restaurant Saturday in Tinley Park, officials said.

The melee Saturday at the restaurant appears to have been the work of protesters who wanted to attack a gathering of alleged white supremacists, the mayor and a law enforcement source said previously.

Tinley Park Police Chief Steve Neubauer said all five men are charged with aggravated battery, mob action and criminal damage to property. The group includes three brothers, Jason W. Sutherlin, 33, of Gosport, Ind., Cody Lee Edward Sutherlin, 23, of Bloomington, Ind., and Dylan James Sutherlin, 20, of Bloomington, Ind. Alex R. Stuck, 22, of Bloomington, Ind., and James S. Tucker, 26, of Spencer, Ind., are also charged, he said.

In bond court today, bail was set at $250,000 for Jason Sutherlin, $200,000 for Cody Sutherlin, and $175,000 for Dylan Sutherlin, Tucker and Stuck. Their next court date is set for June 12.

A failure in condescension

In which SFWA President-for-Life John Scalzi's misguided attempt to curry favor with the non-white, non-male portion of the population is shown to be conclusively wrong by his very own selected metrics:
I’ve been thinking of a way to explain to straight white men how life works for them, without invoking the dreaded word “privilege,” to which they react like vampires being fed a garlic tart at high noon. It’s not that the word “privilege” is incorrect, it’s that it’s not their word. When confronted with “privilege,” they fiddle with the word itself, and haul out the dictionaries and find every possible way to talk about the word but not any of the things the word signifies.

So, the challenge: how to get across the ideas bound up in the word “privilege,” in a way that your average straight white man will get, without freaking out about it?

Being a white guy who likes women, here’s how I would do it:

Dudes. Imagine life here in the US — or indeed, pretty much anywhere in the Western world — is a massive role playing game, like World of Warcraft except appallingly mundane, where most quests involve the acquisition of money, cell phones and donuts, although not always at the same time. Let’s call it The Real World. You have installed The Real World on your computer and are about to start playing, but first you go to the settings tab to bind your keys, fiddle with your defaults, and choose the difficulty setting for the game. Got it?

Okay: In the role playing game known as The Real World, “Straight White Male” is the lowest difficulty setting there is.

This means that the default behaviors for almost all the non-player characters in the game are easier on you than they would be otherwise. The default barriers for completions of quests are lower. Your leveling-up thresholds come more quickly. You automatically gain entry to some parts of the map that others have to work for. The game is easier to play, automatically, and when you need help, by default it’s easier to get.
Now, let me first point out that John is not a bad guy. He's actually remarkably low on the obnoxious left-liberal scale for a science fiction writer, much less a successful one, and there is no question that he means well. That being said, he's about as socio-sexually Gamma as it is possible to be and still be straight, and for someone whose communication skills are quite high, he's uncharacteristically oblivious to what a condescending little fuck this post makes him appear to be.

I suspect the average straight white man who actually works for a living rather than sitting around making up stories primarily for the benefit of obese middle-aged women aren't terribly inclined to be lectured by an overweight, educated, soft-handed little man about how easy they have it. Let's look at his metaphor of the difficulty setting, which as a gamer, game producer, and game designer I am rather well suited to examine.

First, I note that he is clearly referring to a snapshot in time. Straight white men didn't have it any easier than, for example, straight brown men back in the age of the Pharoahs, nor will they have it easier should China defeat the USA in 2050. So, the metrics have to refer to today, now, not what life was like in 500 BC, 1850, or 2050. Having established that, let's look at the measures he specifically notes and see how many of them are true:

Lesbian couple accused of faking hate crime at Colorado home

Two lesbians who claimed to be victims of a hate crime last year when hateful messages were scrawled on their Colorado home are now being accused of perpetrating a hoax.

Aimee Whitchurch, 37, and Christel Conklin, 29, told authorities last October that vandals had spray-painted "Kill the Gay" on their garage door and left a noose on their doorstep.

The couple, who live in a rented condominium in Parker, Colo., said they believed the alleged incidents were in retaliation for disputes they were having with their Homeowner's Association over their dog.

The FBI reportedly became involved in the investigation. The two women were tested by federal agents to see whether they had spray-paint residue on their palms, Fox affiliate KDVR-reported. They were also asked to take a lie detector test, but declined, according to the station.

Authorities later determined that the women were responsible for the spray-painted words.

Two major Catholic institutions file lawsuits against Obamacare

The Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., and the University of Notre Dame separately filed lawsuits in federal court challenging a Health and Human Services rule that would require them to offer coverage for contraception, the use of which runs contrary to Catholic teaching.

"For the first time in this country’s history, the government’s new definition of religious institutions suggests that some of the very institutions that put our faith into practice — schools, hospitals and social service organizations — are not ‘religious enough,'" said Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the archbishop of Washington, in a statement.

Father John Jenkins, the president of Notre Dame, said: "This filing is about the freedom of a religious organization to live its mission, and its significance goes well beyond any debate about contraceptives."

The House Divided

A sojourn of ten years in the city of Washington had made me part and parcel of the Southern society, all my sympathies, interests, and affections being with them. Born in Charleston, South Carolina, of course I could entertain no very great admiration for our Northern brethren, and partook in a measure of the prejudices which the interference of the Abolition Party in Southern rights fomented into a bitter hate. Thus the strife which was soon to assume gigantic proportions grew with a strength and bitterness, recognizing fearful civil war as the result, and men and women entered into this strife with a partisan furor, entirely ignorant and blind as to their responsibilities.

American women knew nothing of war, believed less in the cruelties and fearful vindictiveness of the Federal governm[en]t. Thus the Southern women gave free expression to the feelings which habit had made but second nature, and spoke of their hatred and determination to sustain their rights by encouraging in their husbands, sons, and fathers every resistance to tyranny exhibited by the Republicans.

The first sign of trouble in Washington was the total breaking up of Southern society by the senators: members resigning their seats in Congress and leaving with their families for the South. Some few could not leave in such haste, and among them was my unfortunate family. In constant correspondence with my parents, sisters, and brothers living [in] Savannah, Ga., my letters were filled with the sayings and doings of the two parties about to break up and convulsed by all the bitterness of the coming strife, [and I was] totally unprepared for such an event as having our letters broken open and their contents made history of by the Federal gover[n]ment.
