When The Guardian and The Washington Post published their articles on Edward Snowden, his sharing classified material on top-secret NSA programs including the PRISM surveillance program with them, the immediate response from many public figures was a dichomty. Some called him a hero while others labeled him a traitor. At the time I thought giving him the title “hero” was a bit too hyperbolic but I do admit to being on his side. I was glad to have had him expose such an egregious violation of protections afforded every citizen under Amendment IV no matter they were passed by Congress, enacted by the signature of the President and a judge okayed the whole. As Judge Andrew Napolitano opines, “That may make it legal but it does not make it Constitutional.” The lastest revelation about America’s surveillance of China has me turning my opinion, it is one thing to tell us what our government is doing to us, an entirely different matter to discuss intelligence gathering from other nations, the hows, whos and whys.
But almost before this information was made public, many people including any number of elected officials were deeming what Snowden did as traitorous. On June 11 when asked by ABC’s George Stephanopolous, Speaker of the House John Boehner what he thought of Snowden, Boehner didn’t wait for the end of the question before spitting out “He’s a traitor,” the indignant tone and the anger on his face evident. I only make note because he has this opinion formed right quick while we are still waiting for him to stop dragging his feet and set up a Special Select Committee to investigate the Administration’s transgressions on Benghazi, the IRS, EPA, now we can add the NSA.
There are too many committees of jurisdiction to do the investigations justice, but for some reason, Boehner continues to hold off his House colleagues who have requested just such a committee. Snowden may be a traitor for revealing classified information, especially in the manner he did. But how less a violation did the president commit the night of September 11, 2012 when he was informed of the armed assault on the Benghazi compound, sovereign U.S. soil, yet he did no more than attempt a hand-off to Secretary Panetta and then left the room to speak with no one, check up on the situation with no one all night? Why are we here nine months later with no detail as to where he went or even why he left in the first place? Where is Boehner’s curiosity, to put it mildly?
Now we have revealed to us that there are seventy Republican members of the House who are demanding of Boehner a conference meeting on the upcoming bill regarding the immigration legislation. Some of them have let it be known that apparently a deal was struck between Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, and President Obama that first a bill will be brought to the Floor, then once it passes a conference committee will be formed to have the language comport with the language of the Senate bill. When that comes back to the House for Final Passage all the Democrats will vote “yea” along the Republicans necessary, the committee chairmen who wish to keep that position and anyone else who is threatened to lose some committee assignment he wishes to keep will vote “yea” as well, the legislation will pass and be signed by Obama. Legislation that has already had the amendment to secure the border first before any amnesty is offered was defeated in the Senate; all the members of the so-called “Gang of Eight” voted against it. So much for Marco Rubio and his protestations as to how he would not support a bill that did not secure the border first. An unsecure border is not about Mexicans; how many nefarious people from other countries, Saudi Arabia, included, are waltzing in through the wide open Southern door? Is there not some manner of traitorous behavior with this whole procedure?
It depends on what your definition of ‘traitor’ is.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court handed down one of its first major decisions of this term, striking down Arizona’s measure requiring proof of citizenship for voter registration. Media reports are already off base in interpreting this decision, says Heritage legal expert Hans von Spakovsky. Here are three things to know about the decision.
1. This is not a voter ID decision.
This decision has to do with voter registration, not the act of voting. Von Spakovsky explains:
In 2004, Arizona voters overwhelmingly approved a referendum that had two major components: voter ID for in-person voting and a requirement that anyone registering to vote provide proof of citizenship. The voter ID provision was not before the Supreme Court and is alive and well in Arizona. (emphasis added)
Although it did not strike down the provision that requires a photo ID for in-person voting, von Spakovsky said “the Supreme Court came down on the wrong side of election integrity” with this ruling.
2. Federal law already mandates that a person must be a U.S. citizen to vote.
The Court’s ruling does not mean that requiring proof of citizenship is bad or wrong. In fact, people are supposed to vote only if they are citizens.
The Court ruled the way it did because there is already a federal law requiring people to affirm that they are U.S. citizens when they register to vote. Most people register using the federal mail-in form under the “Motor Voter” law. The majority of the justices said that federal requirement “preempts” Arizona’s requirement, which simply means the federal law comes first.
But Arizona residents can register to vote using the federal form or a state form. Von Spakovsky notes that “Arizona can continue to require proof of citizenship for anyone who registers using the state form.”
3. States do determine the qualifications of their voters.
If Arizona has information about a voter that shows he or she is not eligible to vote, then the state still decides who is a legitimate voter.
Von Spakovsky says:
The Court specifically noted that under our Constitution, states have the exclusive right to determine the qualifications of voters in federal elections, and Arizona can deny registration to anyone who submits a federal form if it has other information in its possession that establishes the ineligibility of the applicant.
Making sure that only U.S. citizens are voting is vital to the integrity of American elections. This Supreme Court decision basically kept the status quo, and meanwhile, voting reforms are needed.

There is going to be a HUGE rally in Washington, D.C. this week to demand an audit of the IRS. I’ll be there covering it for PolitiChicks.tv and will give you a report later this week.
In the spirit of what Becky Gerritson of Wetumpka Tea Party so elegantly said in her testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee:
“We are patriotic Americans. We peacefully assemble. We petition our government. We exercise our right to free speech and we don’t understand why our government tried to stop us. We aren’t here as serfs or vassals. We’re not begging our lords for mercy. We are born free American citizens and we’re telling our government that you’ve forgotten your place. It’s not your responsibility to look out for our wellbeing and monitor our speech. It’s not your right to assert an agenda. The post that you occupy exists to preserve American liberty. You’ve sworn to perform that duty and you have faltered.”
Our government may have faltered on its own responsibilities. But when duty calls, the American people have a long history of rising to the occasion. Needless to say, busloads of Patriots are heading to the capital on Wednesday, June 19th to peacefully assemble, to petition our government, and to exercise our right to free speech. Isn’t it time that Washington sees first-hand just how outraged the American people are by these discriminatory acts of the IRS? Isn’t it time to audit the IRS?

The real scandal: According observer status to the world’s most powerful leader
One of the more bizarre aspects of the current deluge of Washington scandals is that their very numbers permit President Barack Obama to finesse and continue to play a role as No. 1 observer and chief political fundraiser.
The almost weekly additions to news of the administration’s dereliction of duty and corruption diffuse public concern and deflect the critics including the Republicans [with what appears poor staff work].
There is no zeroing in on substantial targets to maximize the political effect.
It would take, indeed, a Solomon to distinguish which one scandal is of more serious concern for the well-being and adequate functioning of the Republic.
All threaten the trust and confidence in a limited government once inherent in the traditional and unique American constitutional system.
- Would it be the incompetence of the Bureau of Firearms, Tobacco and Alcohol – the name no more anachronistic than its operations apparently – which so bungled an effort to track Mexican drug cartel weaponry that it ended up supplying guns for the murderer of American agents?
- Or would it be a State Dept. security apparatus so politicized by the maybe 2016 candidate for president that it neglected to prepare in chaotic Libya for an attack on the anniversary of 9/11? Or worse still, who gave a still unaccounted “stand down” order in the military chain of command – is it not headed by the president-commander-in-chef? – dishonoring the U.S. warrior code requiring that no man be left behind? Instead, four brave Americans, an ambassador and three of his defenders, were left to die at the hands of especially barbaric opponents.
- Or is the use of the world’s most efficient tax-collecting system and therefore its most powerful bureaucracy to harass and inhibit political opponents?
- Examining charges of pedophilia and prostitution and an assortment of other “minor” offenses among American diplomats will, presumably, continue to be swept under the diplomatic red carpet. Betwixt the repeated denials of knowledge of the workings of their own bureaucracy and admissions of guilt, so-called “acceptance of responsibility” has become a meaningless cliché. No one gets fired, some get promoted, and others are put on “administrative leave” continuing to pull down inflated salaries and bonuses. And former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who told us “what differences does it make” that she and others lied to the public about the origins of this major disaster, ends her tenure at one of our most important government bureaucracies apparently unscathed.
- The Obama administration has even shot itself in the foot – and created a serious constitutional issue – by its illegal pursuit of a largely docile media. Conspiracy to injure U.S. national interest is not, of course, outside the bounds of investigation of the media, especially when such an old paranoid anti-American voice as The Guardian is involved. The footnote is critical that the Attorney-General of the U.S. – after being turned down by two judges – charged in his search warrant for a Fox reporter’s personal papers and communications that he was in pursuit of a criminal charge under the espionage law. His claim now he never had any intention to pursue it but simply a ruse to get the judge’s permission is a cardinal offense for our major executive law-enforcer. How many more violations of the law, from contempt of Congress to charges of perjury, must there be before he goes.
The latest “scandal” to sweep Washington is, indeed, of a different character although critics and some analysts have largely confounded it with the others in the public discussion of the generally rising tide of incompetence. A scalawag with a largely manufactured if elaborate résumé has somehow been able to loose publicly details of highly guarded national security secrets. Ironically, there may be a benefit from his shenanigans by forcing a re-examination of the never ending problem of government secrecy for national security as against the right of citizens in a free republic to know how and why their government is spying on them.
But it is abundantly clear that the authorities, in order to prevent more 9/11s and, hopefully, the even more demanding prevention of Boston Marathon Bombings, must cast a wide net. In a digital age when terrorists use the internet to evangelize, to recruit, to offer weapons for lone wolf candidates, and to plan their atrocities, vast worldwide data compilation including from the domestic scene is required. However difficult, one has to assume that this is a method to avoid even more and larger incidents. The episode also has brought into question the growing reliance of the government on “Beltway bandits” with their contractual access to government secrets but what appears to be an inability to protect them.
The scandals, covered in its own inimitable way by a mainstream media as a willing culprit through its outrageous partisanship with the President, have had a devastating role on public opinion. They have increased cynicism about political life, further discrediting the Congress. But they have even inevitably eaten into the rockstar adoration the U.S.’ self-anointed media, bureaucratic and Hollywood elite has lavished on Mr. Obama.
With details of each of these violations of the public trust being obscured as the next one comes tumbling out, the difficult job of periodically reexamining governance in any democratic society and making reforms is being taxed to its fullest.What is certainly happening, however, is that the important domestic and foreign policy issues are being ignored or manhandled.Mr. Obama’s continuing war against American business is further aggravating the incredibly difficult job of restoring maximum employment as the economy tries to adjust to the ever-expanding ramifications of the digital revolution.
Abroad the President’s team continues to disparage the accomplishments of U.S. leadership in the post-World War II era, seeking to substitute corrupt and incapable international organizations for American leadership.
In the Mideast Mr. Obama is hoisted on his own petard, having denounced the interventionism of the previous Bush Administrations and precipitously ended commitments in Iraq and Afghanistan assuring minimum continued U.S. regional influence, he is now forced to confront the perilous decision-making of intervention in Syria.
He neglected possible opportunities earlier on to take advantage of the opposition to the Assad Syrian regime – as with his earlier refusal to exploit growing popular antagonism to the mullahs in Iran.
Now Mr. Obama is forced to try to affect the outcome of events in Damascus with jihadists and their allies playing a larger and larger role in the opposition to Assad. Not to do so is to risk an explosive regional war in the area involving one of his announced most trusted colleague, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Turkey as well as Israel and the Arab states. Or worse still, a failure to turn the Assad regime out would install the long arm of Iran on the Mediterranean in Syria and through Hizbullah in Lebanon and crown it the region’s hegemonic power over much of the world’s oil supply.
Meanwhile, Washington for the first time since 1945 is not playing its traditional role as conciliator in the Europeans’ greatest economic crisis since postwar reconstruction. That’s despite the fact the U.S. sells three times more to the Europeans than to China. This absenteeism is, granted, largely because of the debilitated situation in Washington’s own economy but it is also part of the Obama lead from behind which given scant priority to a proposed trans-Atlantic free trade agreement.
In East Asia, the Obama administration’s has neglected its principal ally at a time when the Japanese for their own reasons [namely aggressive Chinese and North Korean neighbors and an effort to energize its economy] are now poised to play as equal partners. The absurdity of repeated formulaic pronouncements on North Korea have now permitted that failed state to go on the offensive diplomatically as it continues its mass weapons buildup. Wishful thinking about China’s beneficial role in taming Pyongyang is only part of a passive and unrealistic attitude toward a half dozen major outstanding issues with an unfair trading partner and rapidly arming and aggressive Beijing.
All this poses the question as to how much the U.S. – and the world – will pay for another three years of its all-powerful chief executive as an observer above the fray substituting for leadership.
Ricardo Samitier. Se Acuerdan Cuando Le REGALARON a Obama El PREMIO NOBEL De La Paz
“Por Sus Buenas Intenciones”
Ahora nos mete en una Guerra en que no existen motivos para que Estados Unidos intervengan…
Me gustaría saber la opinión de los jueces que le REGALARON el premio…¿Es esto, la política exterior de un ganador del Premio Nobel de la Paz?
¿Qué Podemos Pensar De John Kerry Un “PACIFISTA” Que Predicó Contra La Guerra A Países Que No Nos Amenazaban? Y llamaba Asesinos Al Presidente y A Los Ministros De Estados Unidos Por Hacer La Guerra?
Ahora el JOHN KERRY, ANTIBÉLICO que en la década de los 60 defendiendo a los comunistas enemigos de Estados Unidos… SE HA TRANSFORMADO AHORA como MINISTRO DE ESTADO de Obama… apoya la entrada en la guerra de Siria de Estados Unidos y APOYA A LOS MUSULMANES enemigos de OCCIDENTE… que inclusive han ejecutado a un menor de 15 años por BLASFEMAR contra Allah…
¿Puede Alguien, Explicarme A Que se deben estas Transformaciones…
¿Porque No Hay Gente Cantando Contra La Guerra En Las Calles Como Hacían Durante Viet Nam… Son Guerras Iguales… Donde Nada Amenaza A USA?
Para los que no se acuerdan como cantaban a favor del comunismo…
LA GEOPOLÍTICA FAVORECE A RUSIA…
José Stalin Fue El Que Impidió En 1948 Al Rechazar El Plan Marshall Que Se Creará Un “Gobierno Mundial” Con Un Solo Ejercito Bajo la ONU….
Lo Que Inicio La Llamada “Guerra Fría” Entre Los Comunistas De USA Y Los De Rusia…
Va A Ser Putin Quien Va A Impedir… Que Obama y Los Comunistas De Ambos partidos Creen La Dictadura Mundial…
El Arma de PUTIN es el Control energético de toda Europa…Hitler invadió Rusia en busca de Petróleo…
Hoy en día; ALEMANIA “El Motor Industrial y ECONÓMICO de EUROPA importa el 36% del Petróleo y GAS de Rusia para poder mantener sus fabricas y sus ciudades operando…
¿Qué Le Puede Ofrecer Obama A Alemania Para Que Siga Apoyando A Estados Unidos?
Sabemos que para TRANQUILIZAR a PUTIN Obama le ofreció destruir 1,000 bombas atómicas… es decir: “Destruir a USA Como Poder Militar”…
El Arma De PUTIN Para Controlar a ALEMANIA y a Europa… es La Llave de Gas y Petróleo…
Según la Comisión Europea, la participación del gas natural ruso en el consumo de gas doméstico de los Estados Miembros en 2007… Ahora es MUCHÍSIMO MAS fue la siguiente:
Putin acaba de ordenar a la Marina Rusa del Pacifico, incluyendo su portaviones a trasladarse al Mediterráneo frente a la Costa de Siria… para defender la ÚNICA BASE NAVAL QUE RUSIA TIENE EN EL MEDITERRÁNEO…
Lo único que Obama y los MUNDIALISTAS pueden conseguir es una declaración contra el uso de “Armas Químicas” pues ninguno de los países que dependen del Gas y Petróleo Ruso… van a ir contra PUTIN… para defender a los ISLÁMICOS TERRORISTAS que son los que están luchando… la mejor prueba es que Egipto que gracias a Obama cayó en manos de la facción terrorista islámica acaba de romper relaciones con Siria…
Creo Que Los Rusos Se Quedarán En Siria, Mientras Putin Quiera…!
La Pregunta es: ¿Que, CARAJO BUSCAN… OBAMA y los DEMÓCRATAS y la facción REPUBLICANA COMUNISTA dirigida por McCain qué los EE.UU. entre en la guerra de Siria?
Lo único que se me ocurre es ARRUINAR A USA…
El Grupo Islámico Escogido Por Obama Para Recibir Las Armas De USA En Siria Ejecuto A Un Joven De 15 Años Por Decir Que No Creía En Alah.
Su crimen fue decir:
Incluso si el Profeta Mohammad baja (del cielo), no voy a ser un creyente “.
Por eso, él fue azotado y luego ejecutado públicamente, por los rebeldes, que el Gobierno de Obama apoya:

Benghazi Scandal Takes Another Turn Against Obama and Clinton
Por Tom Cohen WASHINGTON (CNN) — El hombre detrás de la filtración de documentos secretos que revelaron la existencia de programas de vigilancia del gobierno estadounidense declaró este lunes que la verdad se conocerá, aunque él esté en prisión o muerto.
Edward Snowden respondió preguntas en un chat en línea sobre cómo reveló detalles de la vigilancia secreta que hace la Agencia Nacional de Seguridad a ciudadanos estadounidenses.
Snowden afirmó que filtró los documentos debido a que Barack Obama en su campaña prometió terminar con los abusos, pero en cambio “cerró la puerta sobre investigaciones de violaciones sistemáticas a la ley, profundizando y expandiendo varios programas abusivos y negándose a gastar el capital político para terminar con el tipo de violaciones a los derechos humanos que vemos en Guantánamo, donde hay hombres sin cargos”.
Explicó que tuvo que salir de Estados Unidos antes de que se publicara la información sobre las filtraciones en los diarios The Guardian yWashington Post.
Ahora, escribió, el gobierno estadounidense “predeciblemente destruyó cualquier posibilidad de un juicio justo” en casa, al “declararme abiertamente culpable de traición”.
El analista afirmó que los reportes sobre una posible colaboración con China, o que era un espía de dicho país solo buscan desviar la atención. “Si fuera un espía chino, ¿por qué no volar directamente a Beijing?”, preguntó.
Snowden, que se cree está en Hong Kong, también escribió que la verdad sobre los programas de vigilancia se sabrá y que el gobierno estadounidense “no podrá ocultarla metiéndome a prisión o matándome”.
Snowden, de 29 años, trabajó para la agencia a través de un contratista privado hasta mayo pasado, cuando escapó a Hong Kong.
El analista anunció la semana pasada que él era la fuente de los artículos del diario, tras afirmar que los esfuerzos de la agencia representaban “una amenaza existencial para la democracia”.
Las revelaciones de que la agencia recolectó millones de registros de las telecomunicaciones y de firmas tecnológicas han causado un encendido debate dentro de Estados Unidos sobre los programas de vigilancia que datan de los días posteriores a los ataques de al Qaeda en 2001 en Nueva York y Washington.
Este domingo, el diario The Guardian reportó que la agencia británica de inteligencia electrónica monitoreó teléfonos de delegados y trató de capturar sus contraseñas durante una cumbre económica celebrada allí en 2009.
Según documentos revelados al diario por Snowden, analistas recibieron resúmenes de llamadas entre altos funcionarios, y el GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) estableció cibercafés para los delegados, con la idea de interceptar correos electrónicos y capturar pulsaciones de teclado.
El GCHQ es el equivalente británico de la Agencia de Seguridad Nacional estadounidense, el servicio de inteligencia de comunicaciones Estados Unidos, altamente secreto.
The Guardian también informó que la agencia estadounidense intentó espiar al entonces presidente ruso, Dmitry Medvedev, mientras sus llamadas pasaban a través de los enlaces por satélite a Moscú. http://cnnespanol.cnn.com/2013/06/17/snowden-dice-que-obama-expandio-abusivos-programas-de-seguridad/

Sr. IRS Official Admits Involvement “In The Plan”

China calls for explanations of US surveillance
China joins calls for explanations of US surveillance programs
BEIJING (AP) — China on Monday joined calls for Washington to provide explanations following disclosures of National Security Agency programs which collect millions of telephone records and track foreign Internet activity on U.S. networks.
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that Washington needs to heed international concerns expressed since the programs were made public earlier this month by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
Officials and lawmakers in Germany and other countries are already pressing Washington for information about the collection of information that might affect their citizens’ privacy.
“We think that the United States should regard seriously the concerns and demands of the global community and people from all countries and furnish the global community with a necessary explanation,” Hua said at a regularly scheduled briefing.
Snowden flew to the Chinese autonomous region of Hong Kong on May 20 and is believed to still be there, though in hiding at an unknown location. China hasn’t said whether it would cooperate with any U.S. demands for his extradition, and Hong Kong’s Western-style legal system that is distinct from that on the Chinese mainland allows opportunities for him to appeal.
U.S. officials have defended the surveillance programs as essential to disrupting terrorist plots.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday he was “very, very worried” that Snowden would pass on sensitive information to China in return for immunity or sanctuary.
Asked whether Snowden was a Chinese spy or cooperating with Beijing, Hua answered, “This is complete nonsense.”

Enrique Enriquez. PLEASE PASS THIS OUTRAGE TO EVERY ONE ON YOUR LIST!!! THIS should be read by everyone, especially important to those over 75 ……. If you are younger, then it applies to your parents…………..
Your hospital Medicare admittance has just changed under Obama Care. You must be admitted by your primary Physician in order for Medicare to pay for it! If you are admitted by an emergency room doctor it is treated as outpatient care where hospital costs are not covered. This is only the tip of the iceberg for Obama Care. Just wait to see what happen in 2013 & 2014!
Age 76 Today, I went to the Dr. for my monthly B12 shot that I have been getting for a number of years. The nurse came and got me, got out the needle filled and ready to go then looked at the computer and got very quiet and asked if I was prepared to pay for it. I said no that my insurance takes care of it.
She said, that Medicare had turned it down and went to talk to my Dr. about it. 15 minutes later she came back and said, she was sorry but they had tried every-thing they could but Medicare is beginning to turn many things away for seniors because of the projected Obama Care coming in. She was brushing at tears and said, “Someday they too will get old, I am so very sorry!!”
Please for the sake of many good people. . . ..be informed please.
YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS…
At age 76 when you most need it, you are not eligible for cancer treatment

Well, here it is.
Obama Care Highlighted by Page Number
THE CARE BILL HB 3200
JUDGE KITHIL IS THE 2ND OFFICIAL WHO HAS OUTLINED THESE PARTS OF THE CARE BILL.
Judge Kithil of Marble Falls, TX – highlighted the most egregious pages of HB3200.
Please read this ……. especially the reference to pages 58 & 59
JUDGE KITHIL wrote:
Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.
Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual’s bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.
Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now – ACORN).
Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up with that?)
Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors’ fees.
Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient’s age.
Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.
Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an “end-of-life planning” seminar every five years. (Death counseling…)
Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.
HAD ENOUGH???? Judge Kithil then goes on to identify:
“Finally, it is specifically stated that this bill will not apply to members of Congress.” ~ Honorable David Kithilof Marble Falls, Texas
All of the above should give you the ammo you need to oppose Obamacare. Please send this information on to all of your email contacts.
Only in America does “Health Care Reform” begin with the hiring of 16,500 new IRS agents tasked with determining whether your insurance policy merits a fine.

PRESIDENT AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES ARE CLEARLY INVOLVE IN CORRUPTION JORGE AGUIAR
In reference to the below article. All persons that follow the issues closely must conclude that President Obama is involve with the scandals that are happening. Moreover, is the manner that he reacts to this scandals. No one goes to jail or even fire. EVEN THE IRS DIRECTOR IS RETIRING NOT FIRED . Others are suspended collecting salaries . Like paid vacations waiting until the media lets go of the scandal. Attorney General Eric Holder the hangman and enforcer of the administration lies to committees with impunity, sometime with Presidential Privilege for documents and testifying. Other time he enforces the law for agendas or stop them under the direction of the direction of the President. Like in the case of illegal immigration as published and his on words.
In conclusion the “DOJ”and “IRS” and others agencies are operating in corruption mode with legal “Presidential Immunity” and clear indifference.Yes, the President is now clearly part of the problem. Not until recently I felt that the rule of law could protect anyone against the abuse of government agencies and/or the political powerful, THA IS NO LONGER MY BELIEVE.
Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama’s approval rating dropped eight percentage points over the past month, to 45%, the president’s lowest rating in more than a year and a half, according to a new national poll.
OBAMA’S WAR ON CHRISTIANS
“Scandal.” That one word pretty much summarizes the Obama administration’s second term – from Benghazi-gate, to the IRS’s all-out war on hundreds of conservative organizations, to the Justice Department’s “criminalization of journalism” through targeting, harassing and seizing the records of news reporters and editors.
And that’s in addition to the many other Obama scandals, from his illegally waged war against Libya and his policy of targeted assassinations of Americans (both designated by a bipartisan panel of constitutional experts as “clearly impeachable offenses”) to the Justice Department’s disastrous “Fast and Furious” gun-running operation which resulted in at least 100 deaths – and countless other outrages.
Yet, the mother of all Obama scandals – indeed, the root of all the rest – receives little attention from the press. In fact, most Americans have never even heard an explicit reference to the primary scandal of the Obama administration. That is the sole focus of the June issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine.
As Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian says in the issue, headlined “OBAMA’S WAR ON CHRISTIANS“: “Just scratch a little below the surface of all the current scandals, and the mother-lode comes fully into view.”
“Take the IRS scandal. Who exactly are all these 500-plus ‘tea party,’ ‘patriot,’ ‘conservative’ and ‘prolife’ groups being targeted by the revenue agency?” asks Kupelian. “Who populates these organizations? What beliefs and values animate them? By and large, they are Christians and Jews who strongly hold to a traditional, biblical, Judeo-Christian worldview.”
Continues Kupelian: “Haven’t you wondered why the Obama Department of Homeland Security warns law enforcement departments that the real ‘extremist’ threats to America are from pro-lifers, patriots, constitutionalists, amnesty opponents, gun enthusiasts and military veterans? Haven’t you scratched your head trying to figure out why the U.S. military recently threatened to court-martial Christian service personnel just for sharing their faith with others?
“The hard truth is: Barack Obama considers traditional, freedom-loving, center-right Christian America – not Marxism, not Islamism, not a toxic culture nor a stagnant economy – to be his biggest enemy, his greatest obstacle to fundamentally transforming America.”
Highlights of “OBAMA’S WAR ON CHRISTIANS” include:
• “The biggest Obama scandal of all” by David Kupelian
• “Banning Christianity from the armed forces” by Joseph Farah, who reports that the U.S. military was recently advised that Christian believers are “monsters” who “terrorize” others with their faith
• “Under Obama, Christians and conservatives are ‘extremists’” by Bob Unruh, on the current administration’s relentless demonization of opponents of abortion, same-sex marriage and illegal immigration
• “IRS targeting of conservatives continues” by Jerome R. Corsi, on the public interest law firm that has now sued the revenue agency in federal court on behalf of 25 different organizations
• “IRS demands Christian pro-lifers reveal ‘the content of their prayers’” – one of the most outrageous abuses in an era of outrages
• “Why Obama wars against Judeo-Christian America” by David Kupelian, an in-depth and thought-provoking exploration of what’s really behind the never-ending attacks on everything “decent” and “normal”
• “Obamacare forcing Christian companies to provide abortion pill” by Bob Unruh, showing how some of the Obama administration’s abuses are so egregious that the judiciary is siding against them
• “New class of people identified as IRS enemies” by Gina Loudon, on the bizarre fact that families that adopt children are far more likely to be audited by the IRS than “millionaires and billionaires”
• “Warning from Canada: Orwellian future awaits U.S.” by Art Moore, who documents how the lessons of 10 years of same-sex marriage in our neighbor to the north totally shatter the arguments of “gay marriage” supporters
• “Lesbian journalist: ‘Gay marriage is a lie'” – in a candid moment, journalist-activist confirms everything most opponents of same-sex marriage have long believed
• “Feds require employees to give open LGBT approval” by Matt Barber, who explains the latest – and astonishingly Orwellian – decree from the Obama Justice Department: No longer is it OK for Christians just to be intimidated and “shut up” regarding “lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders” in the federal workplace – they most verbally support it! As one internal DOJ memo to employees puts it: “Silence will be interpreted as disapproval”
• “How a revered Christian institution was brought down” by Peter LaBarbera, a poignant, insider look at what really caused the downfall of the Boy Scouts of America
• “Dobson: Feds must stop silencing and intimidating Christians” by Bob Unruh, in which the evangelical leader confirms that the IRS has been directly targeting traditional-values religious groups – including his own
• “Assaulting Christians but coddling terrorists” by David Limbaugh, on the U.S. military’s disturbing track record of targeting religious liberty
• “Reflections by a former Muslim on Obama’s love of Islam” by Nonie Darwish, on how Obama became the “savior of both Islam and socialists”
• “The world’s most dynamic religion is …” by Dennis Prager, who surprisingly reveals that today’s most influential belief system – and the one increasingly dominating America – is neither Christianity nor Islam
• “Beware of liberals in evangelicals’ clothing” by Ann Coulter, who exposes the totally irrational “new Christian ethic of compassion-by-personal-encounter”
• “Christian civil disobedience may be imminent” by Patrick J. Buchanan, who asks: What happens when millions of believers refuse to obey new same-sex marriage laws?
• “Memo to Christian troops: We’ve got your back” by Matt Barber, who speaks for one public-interest law firm in encouraging American soldiers to “stand tall and proclaim your faith proudly.”
“Fasten your seat belts,” says Kupelian, “because we’re about to go for a wild ride, connecting the dots of the Obama administration’s many outrages, allowing the real scandal underlying all the others to finally come clearly into view.”
“MARXISM, AMERICAN-STYLE” reveals with jaw-dropping clarity how Marx’s godless, materialist ideology – characterized by an all-consuming obsession with government control of resources and production, as well as the radical “redistribution” of wealth and power to perpetually aggrieved “victim” segments of society – is increasingly dominating America.
Surprise! Tables turned in vote-fraud case (video)
Undercover video investigator James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has turned the tables on a top New Hampshire law official who tried to indict him for a video sting that exposed vote fraud in the state.
In his latest video, O’Keefe – employing the confrontational style that made Mike Wallace famous – showed up at the office of state Associate Attorney General Richard Head with a microphone, three video cameramen and a copy of O’Keefe’s new book, set for release Tuesday, which features an entire chapter on Head and the voter-fraud case.
O’Keefe explains in the opening scene of his video, outside the New Hampshire Department of Justice, that he planned to go inside and ask Head why he had not responded to his Freedom of Information Act request to Head’s office May 8, 2012, asking for all communications Head had with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
“We all know that the Justice Department has been spying on the Associated Press,” O’Keefe says in his introduction. “What you may not know is that the attorney general’s office here in New Hampshire tried to indict myself and my colleagues last year for exposing voter fraud.”
The episode began in January 2012 when O’Keefe released a video of associates acquiring ballots for the New Hampshire Primary by using the names of recently deceased voters. The video, O’Keefe said at the time, showed that “the integrity of the elections process is severely comprised.”
Get James O’Keefe’s new book, “Breakthrough: Our Guerrilla War to Expose Fraud and Save Democracy,” exposing the duplicity of Planned Parenthood, ACORN, Medicaid, NPR, teachers unions, labor unions and politicians.
After the January 2012 video was released, the New Hampshire attorney general’s office launched a comprehensive review of state voting procedures. But Head also announced he would investigate the possibility that O’Keefe and his associates committed crimes by recording another person without their consent and fraudulently obtaining a ballot.
O’Keefe and his team, who found the names in published obituaries, insisted they broke no laws, because they didn’t pretend to be the deceased persons when they asked for the ballots and didn’t cast any votes.
O’Keefe is perhaps best known for this hidden-camera recordings in 2009 that showed ACORN employees in six cities advising him and his associate, Hannah Giles, how to avoid detection by authorities of tax evasion, human smuggling and child prostitution.
The U.S. Congress subsequently voted to freeze federal funding to ACORN, and the Census Bureau and the IRS terminated their contract relationships with the organization.
In March 2010, ACORN announced it would dissolve due to loss of funding.
‘Did you know about that?’
In the New Hampshire investigation, state authorities went to the home of Project Veritas videographer Mike Rogers in May 2012 with a criminal grand-jury subpoena for O’Keefe.
O’Keefe wanted to know how state officials knew they could find O’Keefe at Rogers’ home and filed the public-records request. He received no answer.
In the latest video, O’Keefe poses his unanswered questions directly to Head on camera.
O’Keefe recalls to Head that state officials sent agents to Rogers’ house in what he described as a “raid.”
“The family felt terrorized based on what happened,” O’Keefe tells Head. “Did you know about that, that they went into his house in the dead of night and they showed pictures … and they tried to indict me for our voter-fraud work in the state of New Hampshire showing ballots being offered out in the names of the dead?
“Why,” O’Keefe asks, “did the state of New Hampshire … try to indict me for doing investigative reporting?”
Head replies that O’Keefe was asking “a slightly loaded question in terms of the way it was phrased.”
“I would not describe the effort of a prosecutor to locate you during the course of an investigation of some work you had done in the state of New Hampshire in the way that you characterized it,” the New Hampshire official says.
Head admits, however, he was aware that an investigator talked to family members of Mike Rogers in an attempt to locate O’Keefe.
O’Keefe then asks if the investigator had a subpoena from a grand jury before he went to Rogers’ house?
“I’m not commenting on anything in terms of, relating to, grand jury work,” Head replies.
On camera, O’Keefe gave Head a copy of O’Keefe’s new book, “Breakthrough,” which devotes a chapter to the New Hampshire official titled “The Rise of Richard Head.”
The chapter, according to O’Keefe, recounts how Head sent a certified letter to a woman named Nadia Naffe, asking her to turn over seven years of emails from O’Keefe’s Gmail account that O’Keefe believed she obtained illegally.
O’Keefe asked Head on camera why he made the request if the emails were obtained illegally.
In the video, Head says he only had information that Naffe possessed the emails and didn’t know how she had obtained them.
“At that time we were in an investigation,” Head says. “Those emails may have been useful. And since she had possession of them, I made a request for them.”
After O’Keefe’s investigation, the New Hampshire legislature passed a voter ID law, overturning the veto of Gov. John Lynch, a Democrat.
Lynch had condemned the Project Veritas video probe, calling for an investigation of O’Keefe.
“I think it is outrageous that we have out-of-staters coming into New Hampshire, coming into our polling places and misrepresenting themselves to the election officials,” Lynch said at the time, “and I hope that they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, if in fact they’re found guilty of some criminal act.”
‘Easy’ election fraud
Last year, Project Veritas conducted a series of investigations in more than a dozen states “demonstrating the ease with which election fraud can be committed and legitimate voters can be disenfranchised.”
A video sting by O’Keefe, first reported by WND, prompted the resignation of Democratic campaign staffer Patrick Moran, the son of Rep. Jim Moran son, and a criminal investigation by the Arlington County Police Department in Northern Virginia, near Washington, D.C. Prosecutors decided not to press charges.
Washington (CNN) – Más de seis de cada diez estadounidenses dicen que la seguridad fronteriza, en lugar de un camino hacia la ciudadanía para los inmigrantes indocumentados, debe ser la prioridad número uno en materia de inmigración, de acuerdo con una encuesta de CNN/ORC International divulgada este martes.
El estudio sale a la luz pública mientras un proyecto de ley de reforma inmigratoria respaldado por la “Banda de los Ocho” senadores de ambos partidos enfrenta más obstáculos legislativos. La medida podría ofrecer un camino de 13 años para la eventual ciudadanía pa los 11 millones de inmigrantes indocumentados que actualmente viven en el país. Si la legislación es aprobada por el Senado Demócrata, se enfrentaría a un futuro incierto en la Cámara de Representantes, dominada por republicanos.
Según la encuesta, el 51% dice que apoya un proyecto de ley que trate de aumentar la seguridad en las fronteras y cree un camino a la ciudadanía para los inmigrantes indocumentados, mientras el 45% se oponen a esa medida.
“El apoyo proviene principalmente de los demócratas” -seis de cada diez a favor del proyecto de ley-, dijo el director de encuestas de CNN, Keating Holland. “También hay una brecha generacional en este tema, con las personas de la tercera edad que se oponen al proyecto de ley por un margen de 17 puntos, mientras que los estadounidenses más jóvenes tienden a favorecerlo”.
La publicación de la encuesta también llega mientras algunos senadores del Partido Republicano alistan una enmienda al proyecto de ley de la “Banda de los Ocho” que dice que ellos reforzaría aún más la seguridad fronteriza. Sesenta y dos por ciento de los entrevistados en la encuesta dijo que la seguridad fronteriza debe ser el foco principal de la política de inmigración de EE.UU., mientras un 36% que afirma que la creación de un posible camino hacia la ciudadanía para los inmigrantes indocumentados debe ser la máxima prioridad.
“Los republicanos y los independientes apoyan fuertemente hacer de la seguridad fronteriza la principal preocupación, e incluso los demócratas están divididos sobre esta cuestión”, añade Holland.
También hay una brecha generacional, con las personas entre 18 y 34 divididas sobre lo que consideran es más importante, mientras que la gran mayoría de las personas de 35 años o más dice que la seguridad fronteriza debe ser la máxima prioridad cuando se trata de la política de inmigración.
El presidente Barack Obama y los demócratas quieren cumplir con la promesa hecha a los hispanos, el grupo demográfico de más rápido crecimiento en el país y un bloque de votantes clave en las elecciones, para abordar el limbo de los 11 millones de inmigrantes que viven ilegalmente en el país. Si el proyecto se convierte en ley, sería uno de los principales logros legislativos del presidente en su segundo mandato.
Sin embargo, la encuesta indica que la mayoría de los estadounidenses no dan a Obama el pulgar hacia arriba sobre el tema. Sólo cuatro de cada diez dicen que aprueban el trabajo que está haciendo en materia de inmigración ilegal, mientras el 56% dijo que desaprueba su desempeño en el tema. Esos números han cambiado poco en las encuestas de CNN desde 2009, primer año del presidente en la Casa Blanca.
La encuesta fue realizada para CNN por ORC Internacional, entre el 11 y el 13 de junio, con 1.014 adultos en todo el país consultados por teléfono. El error general del muestreo de la encuesta es de más o menos tres puntos porcentuales.
