Are They All Guilty of “Slimy” Reporting?

| The Post & Email:

It looks like the Washington TIMES is about to join the New York SLIME in ‘slimy’ reporting.

Your quixotic attempt at continuing the cover-up of ‘The Ineligible One’ is as weak, ineffective, and slimy as any we have seen. (You did get two things right: Your subtitle stating that the ‘FEC allows the ineligible to run for the nation’s highest office’, and your delineation of the requirements to hold that office.)

Should you choose to continue this story (with apologies, retractions, and some real reporting skills – a-la Woodward & Bernstein of the Washington POST), you might just want to ‘investigate’ the following:


Obama campaign launches snitch line website

Obama campaign launches snitch line website:

It’s official. The Obama campaign launched a new snitch line website today ostensibly to handle “misinformation” out there against President Obama.

“Got my spy email today from the Obama campaign,” CFP reader Rosemary from Norwalk, Ct. wrote Canada Free Press (CFP). “They have set up a website called AttackWatch.com. It is for people to report “lies” about Obama! They even reference some of their own.”

“How low can they go?”

Plenty low, Rosemary as AttackWatch will soon prove.

The Obama campaign is only making official what they started back in the summer of 2008 with “the Barack Obama Truth Squad”.

“KMOV-TV in Missouri is reporting that Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has signed up law enforcement officials “to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign.” (Obama’s Legal Goon Squads, Matthew Vadum, CFP, Sept. 28, 2008).

“According to a summary on National Review Online by Jim Geraghty, prosecutors and sheriffs in the state are joining “the Barack Obama Truth Squad”. Mentioned in the report are Jennifer Joyce, a St. Louis Circuit Attorney, and Bob McCullough, prosecutor for St. Louis County, NRO reports............

Is Barack Obama Depressed?

Is Barack Obama Depressed?:

We're told by a source inside the Times that the paper is preparing a story arguing that Obama no longer finds joy in the political back-and-forth, has seemed increasingly listless to associates, and is generally exhibiting the litany of signs that late-night cable commercials will tell you add up to depression. Or maybe Low T.

Either way, the investigation was described to us as taking seriously the notion that Obama may be suffering from a depressive episode.

White House pressed on $500 million loan to solar company now under investigation

White House pressed on $500 million loan to solar company now under investigation:

“We have ended up with a situation of having to do rushed approvals on a couple of occasions (and we are worried about Solyndra at the end of the week),” one official wrote. That August 31, 2009, message, written by a senior OMB staffer and sent to Terrell P. McSweeny, Biden’s domestic policy adviser, concluded, “We would prefer to have sufficient time to do our due diligence reviews.”

White House officials said Tuesday that no one in the administration tried to influence OMB’s decision on the loan. They stressed that the e-mails show only that the administration had a “quite active interest” in the timing of OMB’s decision.

Chuck Baldwin -- Enemy Within The Gates

Chuck Baldwin -- Enemy Within The Gates:

I remind you that during our War for Independence, the colonial army had far more to fear from Benedict Arnold than it did from King George! And so it is today. The enemy at the gates at least looks like the enemy.

It dresses like the enemy; it talks like the enemy; it acts like the enemy. But the enemy within the gates looks like a friend. It dresses like a friend; it talks like a friend; it acts like a friend. But it is still the enemy!

The enemies of freedom are ubiquitous today. They are in our State legislatures; they sit on the benches of our judiciary; they teach in our colleges and universities; they preach in our pulpits; they teach in our Sunday School classrooms; they sit across our dining room tables; they even sleep in our own beds!

And, for the most part, they are in charge of most things going on in Washington, D.C.....................

Freedoms I Wish the Military Were Defending by Laurence M. Vance

Freedoms I Wish the Military Were Defending by Laurence M. Vance:

...Would I rather live somewhere else? No, I wouldn’t, but that is a ridiculous question.

First of all, if the typical German, Italian, Swede, Korean, Australian, or Spaniard were asked if he would rather live somewhere else you would probably get the same answer.

And second, although a prisoner would rather live in a clean prison than a dirty prison and a safe prison rather than a violent prison, he would prefer to not be a prisoner in the first place.

I conclude with three brief thoughts. One, I want the military to defend our freedoms. But fighting foreign wars only reduces our freedoms. After all, it is still true that war is the health of the state. Two, if the military is going to defend our freedoms, then we need freedoms to defend.

Our freedoms must be restored before the military can defend them. And three, the greatest threat to our freedoms is the U.S. government, not the governments of China, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, or Iran..................

Has the United Nations supplanted U.S. sovereignty in plain view?

(Sep. 13, 2011) — Ever notice how “one-sided” one side is? I was thinking about the flash mob outside the fair in Milwaukee and remembering not seeing the words “prejudice,” or “bigotry,” or, for that matter, “hate crime” in any of the reports. And then the Muslims colonizing this country and building weapon storage facilities – oh, pretend sorry, mosques – and everyone with half a brain should be offended by:

1) Muslims being within our borders,

2) the nerve of them thinking they’ll be allowed to store their weapons in our neighborhoods,

3) our morally corrupt politicians even considering such an outrageous proposal.....................

Prison Planet.com � 9/11 Truth Critics: Do They Have A Case?:

The short answer to the question in the title is no.

The 9/11 truth critics have nothing but ad hominem arguments.

Let’s examine the case against the truthers presented by Ted Rall, Ann Barnhardt, and Alexander Cockburn.

But first let’s define who the truthers are.

The Internet has made it possible for anyone to have a web site and to rant and speculate to their heart’s content. There are a large number of 9/11 conspiracy theorists.

Many on both sides of the issue are equally ignorant. Neither side has any shame about demonstrating ignorance..................

Napolitano, FBI Give Non-Answers to Questions Surrounding Operation Fast and Furious:

Despite ATF Special Agent William Newell admitting in sworn testimony that mutiple government agencies, including the FBI and DHS, were responsible for the development and implementation of Operation Fast and Furious, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitiano and FBI Director Robert Mueller denied knowing anything about the operation until Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed with guns from the program and avoided getting into details about their involvement by referring the case to the Inspector General in the Justice Department and citing an "on-going investigation" when asked by Arizona Senator John McCain recently on Capitol Hill.

Declaration vs Constitution?

Declaration vs Constitution?:

The Declaration of Independence (1776) and the Constitution (ratified 1789) are the founding documents of the American Republic, regarded as secular “holy writ.”

Ironically, however, many Americans confuse the two. It may be too bad, but days are past when school children memorized much of the Declaration and at least the Preamble to the Constitution.

Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration; whereas, the Constitution took months of work by an entire convention chaired by George Washington................


Andrew Sullivan: I Fear a Civil War if These Christianists Beat Obama, or Something!

Andrew Sullivan: I Fear a Civil War if These Christianists Beat Obama, or Something!:

This from the scribe who's devoted an inordinate amount of time over the last three years to indulging a bizarre conspiratorial obsession with Sarah Palin's uterus. His new admonition: Be careful what you wish for, wingnuts -- an Obama loss in 2012 could trigger a neo Civil War. Scary, right? We'll tackle this conclusion in a moment, but first, Sully sets the table with some (now familiar) anti-religious sociological psychobabble:

"...The GOP, deep down, is behaving as a religious movement, not as a political party, and a radical religious movement at that. Lofgren sees the "Prosperity Gospel" as a divine blessing for personal enrichment and minimal taxation (yes, that kind of Gospel is compatible with Rand, just not compatible with the actual Gospels); for military power (with a major emphasis on the punitive, interventionist God of the Old Testament); and for radical change and contempt for existing institutions (as a product of End-Times thinking, intensified after 9/11)."

Heavy stuff. Next...............................


Facebook Executive Charging $35,800 To Eat Dinner With Obama…

Facebook Executive Charging $35,800 To Eat Dinner With Obama…:

(NBC Bay Area) — The Obamas seems to be making a habit of visiting the Bay Area.

First Lady Michelle Obama visited earlier in the summer to raise money for her husband’s re-election campaign and the Democratic party.

Now her husband is set to do the same thing.

President Barack Obama will visit the monetary heart of Silicon Valley in two weeks for two private receptions at the homes of wealthy supporters.

Mr. Obama will be the guest of honor at a reception at a private peninsula home on Sunday afternoon Sept. 25 followed by evening dinner in Atherton.

The location of the early reception is the Woodside home Symantec CEO John Thompson and his wife Sandi. The entrance price at the Thompson’s is $2,500 without a picture or $7,500 with a photo of yourself and the president.

The evening meal will be far more costly. A dinner date with Mr. Obama will cost a cool $35,800. Anyone willing to spend the money to eat with the president is welcome to come.

The hosts are Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg and her husband David Goldberg. Sandberg is getting used to having famous faces knock on her front door. She had Oprah Winfrey over for dinner just last week after the former talk show host held a townhall for her Facebook fans.

The Strange Politics Of The US 2012 Election � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

When was it that the most extremely disturbed inmates seized control of the madhouse known as the American political system? We know they are wielding decisive influence within the two-party structure by their destructive antics in Washington and various state capitals, but when and how did this happen?

Some contend that the takeover was accomplished last January, when the new Republican House majority assumed office. Granted that the intransigent buffoonery of the right/far right party is a substantial factor, but it by no means is the only factor, as the Democrats suggest.

The Tea Party (TP) phenomenon is a symptom of..................

The word Obama won't dare say

The word Obama won't dare say:

Say what you will about the Republican Party's politics, but one thing I think we all can agree on is that they know how to control the message.

Instead of "educated," they say "elitist."

Instead of "the rich," they prefer "job creators."

And in their latest linguistic sleight of hand, the modern-day Houdinis have managed to turn "stimulus" into a four-letter word.

Or at least a word President Barack Obama no longer feels comfortable saying. In 2009, he couldn't say it enough. Now ... well, I didn't hear it once during his jobs speech last week, even though $447 billion in tax cuts and government spending would certainly qualify as being one.

In any case, it seems Obama's strategy of trying to pass a jobs stimulus package without saying the word "stimulus" just makes talking about the bill more difficult than it has to be. And if he continues to let undecided voters believe the first stimulus package was unsuccessful, what's their motivation for getting behind him and pressuring their representatives to pass the second?

Or even vote for him?

Rick Santorum Tells Rep. Ron Paul To Stop ‘Parroting Osama Bin Laden’ At CNN Debate

Rick Santorum Tells Rep. Ron Paul To Stop ‘Parroting Osama Bin Laden’ At CNN Debate:


Cong David Crockett allegedly said, All Politicians are scum (paraphrased).

Naturally, to a politician/and those caught up in the bs of this world, truth will sound like bs.

Dr Ron Paul is basically not a politician, he is a conservative in the true sense of the word as defined by Goldwater and Reagan, of libertarian (small l) philosophy; today most referring to themselves as patriots, etc. are just kidding themselves.

Dr Paul is, indeed, the only true conservative, patriot, candidate out there.

My opinion, others may wallow in the slop to their heart’s content.

400 Years of Blogging

400 Years of Blogging:

‘Blogs’ have been with us for some four hundred years although obviously their form and means of distribution has changed. The invention of moveable type enabled the relatively inexpensive production of printed material as well as an increasingly literate society, although even today I have witnessed the ‘shared newspaper’ experience in Africa, so being illiterate doesn’t preclude access to the news and it might be argued that sharing the experience of having someone reading the news in a collective setting is a definite advantage.

The early ‘bloggers’ like Thomas Paine suffered imprisonment and worse for publishing tracts that the state found embarrassing and in fact the earliest ‘sedition’ laws came about as a direct response to the ‘self-published’ pamphlet, so fearful was the state of the spread of ideas contrary to the dominant ideology.

And up until the 20th century, many pulled no punches in their descriptions of the ruling elite that even today, would not be tolerated..........

Pamphleteers and Web Sites

Pamphleteers and Web Sites:

A few years ago, while doing thinking about personal web sites and personal publishing, my friend Chris Daly pointed out the similarity to pamphlets during the American Revolution.

(Chris spent years as a reporter, including being a New England correspondent for the Washington Post. He's now a professor of journalism at Boston University. He was a major contributor to the start of my Good Documents web site.) He lent me his well-worn copy of Bernard Bailyn's "The Ideological Origins of the American Revolution".

I've quoted from it a few times in speeches. This is an essay that ties it to personal web sites. (All quotes are from Bailyn's book, Chapter I, "The Literature of Revolution", unless otherwise noted.).........

E-Verify 'flags' Obama's Social Security Number

E-Verify 'flags' Obama's Social Security Number:

A private investigation reveals that the Social Security Number being used by Barack Obama does not pass a check with E-Verify, the electronic system the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has created to verify whether or not prospective employees have the required authorization to work legally in the United States.

Over the past few years, the E-Verify system has received national attention because of its ability to determine if prospective employees are illegal immigrants who have entered the United States without the legal authority to work.

Autographed copies of Jerome Corsi's "Where’s the Birth Certificate?" are available only from the WND Superstore

By flagging fraudulent documents, including faked Social Security Numbers, the E-Verify system can assist an employer in the effort to make sure all prospective hires have authentic identification papers, including valid Social Security Numbers, issued to them and not to someone else.

Now WND has obtained a copy of an affidavit from Linda Jordan, a private citizen who entered Obama's Social Security Number into the "Self Check" section of the E-Verify website, only to find out that Obama's Social Security Number was flagged by E-Verify as likely being fraudulent.

Lessons from 9/11? What Lessons?

Lessons from 9/11? What Lessons?:

...And what are those lessons?

One is that America -- not the Islamic world -- must engage in moral introspection.

The other is that we must oppose all expressions of religious extremism -- Jewish and Christian as well as Muslim, since, according to the Left, America's conservative Christians are as much a threat to humanity as are extremist Muslims.

Perhaps the best-known exponent of these non-lessons has been Karen Armstrong, the widely read religious thinker and former nun. She was invited to give a presentation on compassion at the nation's religious memorial service this past Sunday. And what was her message?

"9/11 was a revelation of the dangerous polarization of our world; it revealed the deep suspicion, frustration and rage that existed in some quarters of the Muslim world and also the ignorance and prejudice about Islam and Middle Eastern affairs that existed in some quarters of the West ..."

There you have it: Muslims have rage and deep suspicion; the West has ignorance and prejudice.

If that's what the world learns from 9/11, those who died that day died in vain.................

Twenty years after Tailhook, a changed Navy | SignOnSanDiego.com:

Some old-timers say the downside of the Tailhook legacy is that the Navy is too politically correct now, and the type-A confidence and swagger needed to be a great pilot is being squashed.

Future leaders are being ushered out of the Navy because of its zero-tolerance policy for gaffes. Maybe the next time that America needs pilots to be daring and great, they will be too used to being correct, they say.

Former Navy Secretary John Lehman wrote an article in the September issue of the U.S. Naval Institute’s Proceedings magazine that asks “Is naval aviation culture dead?”

* Escalating unemployment (25 million at last count, with minority communities suffering the most).

* Zero job growth.

Posted by Lew Rockwell on September 9, 2011 10:02 AM


If we were as honest as the French, we would admit that there have been at least 5 US republics.

The 1st was founded in 1789, in the centralization and empowerment of government in the Constitution;

the 2nd came with the increased centralization under Lincoln;

the 3rd was established under Wilson with world war, central banking, the income tax, and the centralizing 17th amendment;

the 4th was founded by FDR with his fascist New Deal and another world war;

and the 5th was born on 09/11/01.

Fast and Furious: Feds Forced Gun Store Owner to Make Illegal Sales

Fast and Furious: Feds Forced Gun Store Owner to Make Illegal Sales:

In the fall of 2009, ATF agents installed a secret phone line and hidden cameras in a ceiling panel and wall at Andre Howard’s Lone Wolf gun store. They gave him one basic instruction: Sell guns to every illegal purchaser who walks through the door.

For 15 months, Howard did as he was told. To customers with phony IDs or wads of cash he normally would have turned away, he sold pistols, rifles and semiautomatics. He was assured by the ATF that they would follow the guns, and that the surveillance would lead the agents to the violent Mexican drug cartels on the Southwest border.

When Howard heard nothing about any arrests, he questioned the agents. Keep selling, they told him. So hundreds of thousands of dollars more in weapons, including .50-caliber sniper rifles, walked out of the front door of his store in a Glendale, Ariz., strip mall.

He was making a lot of money. But he also feared somebody was going to get hurt.

“Every passing week, I worried about something like that,” he said. “I felt horrible and sick.”

Howard P. “Buck” McKeon, the House Armed Services Committee chairman.
