Sestak is not telling the truth. ...you took the words right out of my mouth!

The Sestak-Clinton Smoke Screen
By JR Dieckmann


Last summer during an interview, Joe Sestak let it slip that he was offered a “high level position in the Obama administration” in exchange for dropping out of the Senate race against Arlen Specter. This went mostly unnoticed until this past February, while during another interview for his campaign; the question was brought up about his earlier comment. At that time he again repeated the statement he had made in the summer that he was offered a "high level position in the Obama administration" for dropping out of the Senate race.
Over the past month, Sestak has been asked repeatedly in interviews if he had been offered a high-level job in the Obama administration in exchange for dropping out of the Senate race against Specter. His answer was always the same: “Yes, as I previously stated, I was offered a job by the administration.” He would never elaborate or say exactly what that job was. Obviously, he valued his kneecaps.
Democrats needed Specter’s vote to break Republican filibusters in the Senate. The DNC promised to support Specter’s bid for reelection if he would switch parties. They also wanted Sestak to keep his House seat as an incumbent. Those are the reasons given for their pressure on Sestak to drop out of the Senate race.
Critics say the Sestak job offer may have violated the part of the U.S. code that states:
(b) Whoever -
(1) directly or indirectly, corruptly gives, offers or promises anything of value to any public official or person who has been selected to be a public official, or offers or promises any public official or any person who has been selected to be a public official to give anything of value to any other person or entity, with intent -
(A) to influence any official act; ...shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than two years, or both.
Also under consideration is Section 600 of the U.S. Code:
Whoever, directly or indirectly, promises any employment, position, compensation, contract, appointment, or other benefit, provided for or made possible in whole or in part by any Act of Congress, or any special consideration in obtaining any such benefit, to any person as consideration, favor, or reward for any political activity or for the support of or opposition to any candidate or any political party in connection with any general or special election to any political office, or in connection with any primary election or political convention or caucus held to select candidates for any political office, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.
The Obama regime is quoted as saying: "The advisory positions discussed with Congressman Sestak, while important to the work of the Administration, would have been uncompensated." The carefully crafted story released by the regime is intended to appear to comply with federal regulations and minimize any violations, but falls short of doing that in light of the above code sections.
As I see it, this story being put out by the White House is nothing but a smoke screen to keep the media occupied with a debate over whether or not this action by Clinton and the Obama regime constituted a crime. It doesn’t matter; this is not the whole issue. It is a distraction from the real issue and intended to cover up what actually happened over a two-month period.
Forget about his talk with Bill Clinton. Sestak is not telling the truth. His statements on Friday regarding Clinton's offer are not consistent with the official statement issued by the White House. "Advisory positions discussed with Congressman Sestak" - positions, plural? What positions, other than the one conveyed by Clinton and admitted to by Sestak and the regime were offered? No one in the media is talking about that, or even asking. They are all preoccupied with the Clinton story, just as the regime planned.
Sestak claims he received a call from Clinton, and among other things, they discussed a possible advisory board position in exchange for dropping out of the Senate race. According to Sestak, that portion of the conversation lasted from 30 to 60 seconds and he told Clinton he wasn't interested. According to him, that was the end of it - he wasn’t interested - he didn’t give it much thought - then they went on to talk about other things, he said. That is the whole story according to Sestak, as dictated by the regime after a week of legal discussions to come up with a talking point that would absolve them of any crime and sweep the issue under the rug.
The official White House statement says, “Efforts were made in June and July of 2009 to determine whether Congressman Sestak would be interested in service on a Presidential or other Senior Executive Branch Advisory Board…” This doesn't say how many efforts were made over a two-month period, or what those other efforts were. What "high level job" or jobs were offered to Sestak over that two-month period, and by whom in the White House that no one seems to want to talk about?
An occasional, unpaid, meeting with a national security advisory board is not a "job." Nor is it a "high level position." It is more like a position one step above an internship. It is certainly not an inducement for someone to drop out of a Senate race. If the DNC wanted Sestak out of that race, they would have offered him something more substantial - something that would give him more money, power, or influence than a Senate seat.
This whole story has been concocted to give validity to Sestak's earlier statements that he had been offered a job by the White House, while covering Obama’s and Emanuel’s asses from any crimes. The Clinton incident described by Sestak and the regime probably happened on one occasion, and if it did, it was simply the most benign attempt to persuade Sestak to drop out of the race. It was the one event that they could admit to without showing that any serious crime had been committed. This is their “selective reconstruction of events.”
But what other offers were made to Sestak that no one is talking about? That is what needs to be investigated. And the only way to find those answers is to have Sestak subpoenaed by a Pennsylvania grand jury or independent prosecutor and put under oath. You won’t get the truth from the White House or White House phone records as long as Obama has his Blackberry (that he “doesn‘t know how to use.“)
Rep. Darrell Issa of California and other Republicans are calling for a full and complete investigation by an independent prosecutor, not an Obama crony such as those in the Justice Department or the House of Representatives. Naturally, their efforts will be resisted using any means possible by Obama, Pelosi, and Holder… any one of whom is capable of claiming that, one way or another, this entire game of political musical chairs is George Bush's fault.
Witness how some media shills for Obama are already saying that this is just 'politics as usual,' and claim (falsely) that this sort of thing happened repeatedly under Bush. The favorite fallback position of this White House is always to blame Bush for Obama's failures, isn't it?
But this sort of political maneuvering never happened under Bush according to two former senior Bush administration associates appearing on Fox News. This may be politics as usual in Chicago, and in Congress as evidenced by all the bribes and coercions it took to ram through the healthcare bill, but offering a high level job in the executive branch, or anything of value, to influence an election is a crime.
Only by the media bringing these discrepancies to the public attention will any action be taken. Even then, all efforts to expose the real truth will be resisted and hampered by the Chicago regime now in Washington; a regime that has consistently lied and deceived the public and a compliant media. As evidenced by Nixon’s Watergate, often the cover-up is worse than the crime.

Monitoring The Covert Soviet Strategic Deception...world revolution

"...covert Soviet KGB-GRU operatives masquerading as ‘democrats’ are not out of their minds: they are all in Lenin’s mind."
Before you read Soviet Analyst let me remind you of these words:
1931 -- Students at the Lenin School of Political Warfare in Moscow are taught:"One day we shall start to spread the most theatrical peace movement the world has ever seen. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent ... will fall into the trap offered by the possibility of making new friends. Our day will come in 30 years or so... The bourgeoisie must be lulled into a false sense of security."
October 30, 1991: -- President Gorbachev at the Middle East Peace Talks in Madrid states:"We are beginning to see practical support. And this is a very significant sign of the movement towards a new era, a new age... We see both in our country and elsewhere... ghosts of the old thinking... When we rid ourselves of their presence, we will be better able to move toward a new world order... relying on the relevant mechanisms of the United Nations."

SOVIET ANALYST

A Review of continuing Soviet Leninist World Revolution deception strategy

Editor: Christopher Story FRSA
Soviet Analyst is the only publication in the world specialising in the monitoring of ongoing covert Soviet strategic deception operations and the Soviet dimension of the World Revolution. Because the whole world fell for the classic Leninist strategic deception of ‘collapsible Communism’ and the disintegration of the Soviet Union, Soviet Analyst fulfils a necessary function in explaining ongoing Leninist deception strategy, an understanding of which is a prerequisite for being able to make any sense of contemporary global developments. There are no excuses any longer for the hoodwinked political and policymaking classes in the West continuing to substitute dangerous wishful-thinking about the ‘former’ USSR, for realistic analysis. Because the West believed all its Bolshevik lies, the Leninist revolutionary enemy has been enabled maintain its elaborate disguise, with prospectively fateful consequences for Western civilisation. It doesn't matter which false Soviet political faction, covertly controlled by the continuing Communist Party of the Soviet Union, wins a staged election in Moscow: the Communists will always win, given that ‘Post’-Soviet controlled ‘democratism’ is a Leninist deception. Soviet Analyst applies Leninist methodology to unravel the mysteries of covert ongoing Soviet strategy, which become easier to decipher once the Leninist mindset is mastered.

Soviet Analyst

A Review of continuing Soviet Leninist World Revolution deception strategy.

Published by: World Reports Limited

Soviet Analyst, edited by Christopher Story FRSA, a Soviet strategy expert who further edited and published Anatoliy Golitsyn’s classic work The Perestroika Deception, is the only publication in the world specialising in the monitoring of continuing covert Soviet strategic deception operations and the ongoing Soviet dimension of the World Revolution. Given that the international community fell into the trap of the transparently Leninist strategic deception called ‘collapsible Communism’, Soviet Analyst is alone in fulfilling the very necessary function of explaining and exposing the covert Soviets’ ultra-subtle Leninist deception strategy – a proper understanding of which is a prerequisite to being able to make sense of all contemporary global developments. There is no excuse any longer for the hoodwinked political and policymaking communities in the West continuing to go on substituting dangerous wishful-thinking about Russia for realistic analysis – a mentality which has enabled the Leninist revolutionary enemy to maintain its disguise, with prospectively fateful outcomes for Western society, which is under a relentless revolutionary attack. It does not matter which fake covert Soviet political fraction wins a staged election in Moscow: the Communists always win, given that ‘Post’-Soviet controlled ‘democratism’ is part of the overall Leninist deception. Subscribers to Soviet Analyst are strongly recommended to order The Perestroika Deception, which provides the intellectual framework for understanding the Leninist mentality, and for grasping that the cynical covert Soviet KGB-GRU operatives masquerading as ‘democrats’ are not out of their minds: they are all in Lenin’s mind.

Purple Heart Tear Drops by Lew Waters

DON’T YOU REMEMBER US?


by Lew Waters
Viet Nam Veteran

I remember that day long ago when I decided to join the Military. I know you can’t remember that day, but I do. I hoped I might not have to travel half way around the world to fight in that war long ago. 

You looked proud of me then, but I could see the fear in your eyes. I could feel the apprehension inside of me, fear of the unknown, Basic Training, maybe fighting. But I went because it was the right thing to do.

I remember feeling so proud to put on the uniform and have my photo taken during Basic Training and how in your letter you said I looked all grown up and how proud you were of me.

I remember completing Basic and being sent off for more training in the skill the Military would assign me to do and the day towards the end when my orders came that I was being sent off to that far away land. I was going to war to help preserve someone else’s freedom and stand against those who would oppress others.

I came home for a short leave and asked you to marry me, but you said no, not at this time. We were too young and I would be gone too long, we should wait. I kissed you goodbye and hugged you, not wanting to let go, but I did.

I remember landing in the airplane and after being processed into this far away land, being sent off to the unit that would be my home for the next year. My fear did not subside, but I learned to hide it well, just as all the others did.

I remember that year as if it were yesterday, the horrors I saw, the sounds I heard, the acrid smells around me. But I was doing what must be done to preserve freedom, not only for those we fought for, but for you and those who would come along after us.

I came home and you were there to greet me with open arms. Your tears told me you had really missed me and now, it was you that couldn’t wait to be married to me, even though you knew I was to return as soon as my leave was finished.

I remember you in your white gown and me in my Dress Uniform, now sporting a few medals.

I remember our first kiss as man and wife and looking into your eyes, seeing how much you loved me and the fear of my returning to war seemed less than before.

Our time together as married was too short, but I had to return. I had a job to finish and finishing meant you would be protected in the years ahead as would any children we would have later.

I remember your letter telling me I was going to be a ‘Daddy,’ and to be careful. I was so proud and wanted to be there to show you.

Another year would soon be up and I had been careful so I would return to you. I beamed with pride when I received your letter and saw the photo you sent of you holding our newborn child. It would only be weeks now and I would be back with you, a civilian again, my job and time served completed. I will have served my country with honor.

I remember hearing the rapid popping noise like firecrackers, but knew the sound of an AK-47. The sirens went off, things began exploding around me and I remember thinking how this can’t be happening, not now, I’m too short for this, I want to hold my child and my wife.

Something hit me, once, then twice, and then a third time and it burned. It knocked me down and I couldn’t get up, everything was blurry but became peaceful and quiet. Then it all went black.

I don’t know how they told you or how much you wept when they came to tell you what happened to me, but I saw you at my funeral, sitting there all dressed in black and the tears streaming down your cheeks. You had our child with you and my parents where there, also weeping. I tried to wipe the tears off your cheek and tell you that I was okay, there was no more pain.

You cried as they handed you the folded flag and could barely stand as they lowered me into the ground.

I was pleased that you placed the flag in an oak case along with my medals and a photo of me. I was happy to see you find a new love and remarry and watched from afar as you had more children and your new husband accepted our child as his own.

I heard as you and your husband told our child about me and what I paid so that others could be free and I could see that he too was growing into a fine young man. I was even proud when he too decided to don the uniform of the United States of America and even when he decided to make a career out of the Military.

I remember every Memorial Day when you and your new family came to the ceremony to pay respects to all of us up here. We were there behind the podium then spread out among the crowd that gathered. We all wanted to tell you that we loved you and that we could never forget you. You were the reason we sacrificed as we did and we would gladly do it again.

I remember how as children, we watched as every Memorial Day a parade was held. Aging Veterans marched proudly through the center of town. Some in wheelchairs, some hobbling along, but all proudly wearing the uniform they once wore daily.

The parades seem to be a thing of the past, though. Replaced by yearly ceremonies. I was troubled that the crowds every year became smaller and less people came. Backyard barbecues and merchant sales began taking over for people stopping by the Memorial in town where you all once came to pay your respects.

Then came that fateful day in 2001, September to be exact, when airplanes were flown into buildings and many people died. We knew our numbers would be growing soon and prepared to greet new arrivals.

I watched as once again the numbers at Memorial Day ceremonies grew and we gathered there with you, happy to see faces we hadn’t seen in years.

I wasn’t prepared to greet our son, but he knew who I was right away even though he had never met me. We hugged long and hard, the hug I had wanted to give him so long ago.

We traveled together as once again; we saw you accepting a folded flag, this time for our son and you placed it alongside of mine.

We were together that day and every Memorial Day when you, along with his brothers and sisters came to the Veterans Memorial in town to hear the speeches and to say how much you missed us that first couple of years.

But, you weren’t there the last couple of years. What happened?  Did we make you mad?  Did the pain of remembering us become too great? Did you listen to those voices screaming out how wrong we were for going or believe them as they said we were the bad guys? We see you at home in your backyard. Grandchildren are there now, along with friends and neighbors and you are laughing, playing games, having fun. Our folded flags have gathered dust and are in a box.

Have we been forgotten?

There are so few of you that still come. We hear far too few words of thanks any more. We are happy that you can enjoy life and we miss being there with you, enjoying it too.

Our Memorials are being vandalized, stolen and neglected. Many have fallen into disrepair, so few stopping by today. Our Memorials are under assault and Courts are deciding to tear them down, falsely claiming them to be religious symbols and you aren’t speaking out.

We miss you and think of you every day. We know what the price of freedom is as we paid the high price and would gladly do it again.

We remember you. Don’t you remember us?

Profiles In Courage Award...the joke is on you!

UN or not UN, that is the question

Well if you adhered to all that I've warned you about for the last several years you might want to think about the following video.  Obviously the discovery by Google Maps would alert the powers to be to relocate all the vehicles.  Are they indeed UN vehicles?  I'll leave that for you to decide...but with what all that's been going on I'd be thinking UN...don't forget that the Law Of The Sea Treaty (LOST) is still on the table (Sen. John Kerry is pushing for its ratification...check here)  ...also, don't believe anything that Kerry says about LOST  for no matter how they spin it the ultimate result will be total control over the United States by the UN. ~ Norman E.

The Pine Tree State Has Spoken ~ Are you listening America? ...a must see video!

"From the moment you cross the Piscataqua River and enter the state of Maine, you are in a new world. Life is a little different here. The pace is relaxed, the people are friendly and the air is fresh with the sweet scent of pine. The usual hustle and bustle of the Northeast is left behind and replaced with tranquil days filled with scenic vistas, quaint fishing villages and rustic inns" ~ (Quoted from Down East Maine by Christine Wynne)
The Pine Tree State Has Spoken ~ Are you listening America?



It is within this context that We, the citizens of Maine united by free association as Republicans, dedicated to seeing the principles which brought forth the birth and ascendance of this State and these United States once again made dominant and pledge our unwavering allegiance, not to a political party, but to the Constitution of the State of Maine and the Constitution of the United States of America. The Republican Party is the vehicle through which we seek to better unify and promote those in pursuit of these goals.
The principles upon which the Republican Party was founded, to which we as Citizens seek return, and to which we demand our elected representatives abide, are summarized as follows:
  1. The Constitutions, both State and Federal, are the framework to which any and all legislation must adhere.
  2. State sovereignty must be regained and retained on all issues specifically relegated to the States by the constitution.
  3. National sovereignty shall be preserved and retained as dominant over any attempted unconstitutional usurpations of such by international treaty.
  4. It is the responsibility and duty, of “We the People”,  to educate both ourselves and others; to demand honest elections free of corruption, and to hold our elected officials to the highest standards of honesty, integrity and loyalty to the constitution.

                                       iii.   Reject any effort to give foreign citizens the right to vote in the US in any situation or capacity.

911 Mega Mosque Imam: ‘I Don’t Believe in Religious Dialogue’ ....Cue Up the Daisy Khan Lies

If video does not play click here .
They take us for idiots, infidels and kuffar. Every word out of the imam's wife last night on Behar was a lie. Islamic supremacists like Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan rely on the willful ignorance of liberal clowns like Behar and Roy Sekoff (of the Puff Ho), while they call those who make it their life's work to study Islam "ignorant". Got that?

Over at Pajamas Media:

on March 24, 2010, Abdul Rauf is quoted in an article in Arabic for the website Rights4All entitled “The Most Prominent Imam in New York: ‘I Do Not Believe in Religious Dialogue.’”
Yes, you read that correctly and, yes, that is an accurate translation of Abdul Rauf. And Right4All is not an obscure blog, but the website of the media department of Cairo Univerisity, the leading educational institution of the Arabic-speaking world.
In the article, the imam said the following of the “religious dialogue” and “interweaving into the mainstream society” that he so solemnly seems to advocate in the Daily News and elsewhere:
This phrase is inaccurate. Religious dialogue as customarily understood is a set of events with discussions in large hotels that result in nothing. Religions do not dialogue and dialogue is not present in the attitudes of the followers, regardless of being Muslim or Christian. The image of Muslims in the West is complex which needs to be remedied.
But that was two months ago. More recently — in fact on May 26, one day after his Daily News column – Abdul Rauf appeared on the popular Islamic website Hadiyul-Islam with even more disturbing opinions. That’s the same website where, ironically enough, a fatwa was simultaneously being issued forbidding a Muslim to sell land to a Christian, because the Christian wanted to build a church on it.
In his interview on Hadiyul-Islam by Sa’da Abdul Maksoud, Abdul Rauf was asked his views on Shariah (Islamic religious law) and the Islamic state. He responded:
Throughout my discussions with contemporary Muslim theologians, it is clear an Islamic state can be established in more then just a single form or mold. It can be established through a kingdom or a democracy. The important issue is to establish the general fundamentals of Shariah that are required to govern. It is known that there are sets of standards that are accepted by [Muslim] scholars to organize the relationships between government and the governed. [emphasis added]
When questioned about this, Abdul Rauf continued: “Current governments are unjust and do not follow Islamic laws.” He added:
New laws were permitted after the death of Muhammad, so long of course that these laws do not contradict the Quran or the Deeds of Muhammad … so they create institutions that assure no conflicts with Shariah. [emphasis in translation]
In yet plainer English, forget the separation of church and state. Abdul Rauf’s goal is the imposition of Shariah law — in every country, even democratic ones like the U.S.
But these attitudes are nothing new for the (alas, few) people who have been paying attention. Way back on September 30, 2001, Faisal Abdul Rauf was interviewed on 60 Minutes by host Ed Bradley. Their verbatim dialogue from this CBS News transcript concluded:
BRADLEY: Are- – are — are you in any way suggesting that we in the United States deserved what happened?
Imam ABDUL RAUF: I wouldn’t say that the United States deserved what happened, but the United States policies were an accessory to the crime that happened.
BRADLEY: OK. You say that we’re an accessory?
Imam ABDUL RAUF: Yes.
BRADLEY: How?
Imam ABDUL RAUF: Because we have been an accessory to a lot of — of innocent lives dying in the world. In fact, it — in the most direct sense, Osama bin Laden is made in the USA.

This is the “anti-terrorist” of the Daily News article?
The Faisal Abdul Rauf who spoke to 60 Minutes in 2001 is the same Abdul Rauf who, in the last couple of months, espoused the spread of Shariah law on Arabic websites and said the opposite in the pages of the Daily News. He is the man New York City authorities are about to allow to build a mosque on Ground Zero.

Obama Skips Memorial Day Wreath-Laying at Arlington Cemetery

There has been a plethora of disrespectful activity out of the Obama White House, but this goes to the top of the list. Barack Obama has chosen to take a "long holiday weekend" in Chicago rather than attending and laying a remembrance wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday, May 30th.




Memorial Day at Arlington National Cemetary

Donald Borsch Jr. at Political Integrity said it well:
You have done a great many unjust things, President Obama. You have apologized for America being the strongest damn Nation on Earth to weaker countries. You have done your best to bankrupt us. You have lied, manipulated, and coerced your way into office. But this. Wow. You might just as well spit on Veterans.
No, President Obama is not the first President to miss the ceremony. There have been a couple of others, but he is the first to skip it just because he wanted a vacation...just because it is inconvenient. If a President cannot manage to stay in town, or arrive back into town, for this tribute on behalf of the American people from the highest office in the land, to those who made the ultimate sacrifice...well, I'm speechless and ashamed for this man and his family. I predict a pox on him coming directly from ballot boxes all over the country.

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA


Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett

Not to try and out do Lou Pritchett in the scare category but if you check the side bar to the right you'll find that the candidate Obama instilled fear into this blogger, yours truly, before Obama had a change of address...here's the quote"

Quick! Catch that kid! ...literally! a hero saves the boy! ...it was all caught on tape!

Shopkeeper Saves Boy in Mall source  CBS News
"Caught on Tape": A four-year old boy waiting for his father at an Istanbul shopping mall escaped injury or worse after he climbed to the top of an escalator and was caught by a quick-thinking shopkeeper.

The Model T ...anybody old enough to remember?

This was in the days of little or no government interference...
What?  No seat belts! How dare they!

To those who don't get it...let me draw you a picture.
