Congressman Allen West Reveals Dems Tactics

Above collage by Norman E. Hooben
NoteThe Democrats are no strangers to Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radicals.  Not only did Hillary Rodham Clinton submit her college thesis on the Alinsky philosophy in which she recieved accolades from ole Saul himself; during the Carter Administration, President Jimmy Carter distributed hundreds (maybe thousands) of the controversal book to community organizers throughout the country.  Carter hid the program from the taxpayers (printed at taxpayer's expense) under the shield of the Vista Program...leftover books were discovered in the Vista office in Washington, D.C. after Carter lost his bid for re-election.  Not sure when Community Organizer, Barack Husein Obama received his copy but he executes the rules as if he wrote the book himself. ~ Norman E. Hooben ...all of the above is a matter of record. See also: Still the Alinsky Playbook

West: Cynical jobs report inspired by Saul Alinsky
We all want the suffering of the American people from this rampant scourge of unemployment to end. However, today's jobs report is confusing to say the least. Previous month’s numbers have been revised and yet the workforce participation rate remains at a 30 year low. The unemployment rate drops to 7.8 percent, that is where it was in January 2009 when the President took office. But the U6 computation of unemployed, underemployed, and discouraged Americans remains the same at 14.7 percent.
I agree with former GE CEO Jack Welch, Chicago style politics is at work here. Somehow by manipulation of data we are all of a sudden below 8 percent unemployment, a month from the Presidential election. This is Orwellian to say the least and representative of Saul Alinsky tactics from the book "Rules for Radicals" — a must read for all who want to know how the left strategize. Trust the Obama administration? Sure, and the spontaneous reaction to a video caused the death of our Ambassador ... and pigs fly.

Job Numbers...Hilda Solis can count...let me count the ways

Above collaged credit Norman E. Hooben

Here's a couple of news items...I think two ought to be enough...but who's counting!

1Notion US jobs number rigged "ludicrous": Solis - Yahoo! News
 The Labor Dept head, Hilda Solis is lying for Barack just like Sue Rice lied for him regarding the terrorist attacks on the four Americans.  ...Full Story Here
2.  EDITORIAL: Obama’s fudged unemployment numbers
Official jobless statistics aren’t working

It says a lot when a government jobs report is so out of line with reality that no thoughtful person can take it seriously. At best the new unemployment number is a fluke; at worst it is the product of partisan hacks.
The Department of Labor reported Friday that total nonfarm payroll employment increased by a net 114,000 in September. This poor showing — it reflects a 28,000 drop from the previous month — should have resulted in unemployment increasing by a tenth of a percent. Instead, it dropped by 0.3 percent to 7.8 percent. Call that Chicago-style math.
The official jobless rate is now down to around where it was when Mr. Obama took office, though still higher than what the White House promised it would be after blowing more than a trillion on stimulus programs. Former General Electric CEO Jack Welch was among the first to call shenanigans on the dramatically favorable unemployment figure, echoing a general skepticism from all but the most credulous of Mr. Obama’s defenders.
Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said she was “insulted” by charges that there was something fishy going on. She then betrayed her own ignorance of the facts by saying the 86,000 jobs that the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) discovered in the last two months were private-sector jobs. They were actually government hires. Private-sector employment fell last month by a net of 5,000. Manufacturing jobs were down 16,000. Mrs. Solis threw her underlings under the bus, saying “the information that I received is given to me by our professional, civil service staff in the BLS.” Perhaps these are the same BLS economists whom the Washington Free Beacon reports have contributed thousands to the Obama campaign.
This fudged figure allowed Mr. Obama to evade the sort of negative headlines that George H.W. Bush suffered in October 1992 when unemployment was 7.7 percent. Bill Clinton called it the worst economic record of any president in 50 years. Reuters described the 1992 report as “the final nail in the coffin” for George H.W. Bush. The same news service hailed Mr. Obama’s 7.8 percent number as “providing a boost to his re-election bid.” The liberal press seems to have mislaid its coffin nails.
There’s good reason to question the latest fantasy figure. The U-6 unemployment rate, which factors out low-paying, part-time jobs, remains lodged at 14.7 percent. The percentage of long-term unemployed is four times what it was five years ago. There are still 10 million fewer jobs than at the start of the recession. The number of new weekly jobless claims is up. The number of people on unemployment benefits and food stamps is at record levels. People know in their gut that things aren’t getting better. On main street America, “for lease” signs have replaced grand opening signs. Many malls are vacant and warehouses empty. Middle-class Americans see shrinking paychecks and a rising cost of living. A single massaged, distorted and misleading government datum doesn’t change any of that.

The undoing of 'central' American values by the religion on the left!

A few years ago I was sitting with friends from high school days...some whom I haven't seen in years.  As we told tales of yesteryear the subject turned to politics of today.  One friend asked if I had seen a particular movie (the title is not important here) about a certain public figure.  The answer he heard was, "No."  The answer he didn't hear was, "Oh no, they got to (let's make up a name here) Frankie."  For I had studied the making of that movie and how it was designed to indoctrinate people into thinking that such and such happened when there was no such thing.  The producers of the film were Leftists and the object of the documentary had a definitive desired learning outcome...and it worked on Frankie!  This much we know about leftists: They like to twist the facts.  Almost (maybe all) all of them are followers of Saul Alinsky (Whether they studied about him or not, i.e., Hillary Clinton wrote her college thesis on the Chicago pretender.)  Real leftists are irrational.  You cannot change a true leftist's mind.  They are dead-set in their ways.  It's like a religion to them!  Which brings us to Dennis Prager's excellent commentary regarding the religion of the left.  I have preached about this danger to our American way of life on many occasions but Mr. Prager tells it more succinctly than this righteous old man. ~ Norman E.

The World's Most Dynamic Religion Is ...
By Dennis Prager

For at least the last hundred years, the world's most dynamic religion has been neither Christianity nor Islam.  It is leftism.
Dennis Prager
Most people do not recognize what is probably the single most important fact of modern life. One reason is that leftism is overwhelmingly secular (more than merely secular: it is inherently opposed to all traditional religions), and therefore people do not regard it as a religion. Another is that leftism so convincingly portrays itself as solely the product of reason, intellect, and science that it has not been seen as the dogma-based ideology that it is. Therefore, the vast majority of the people who affirm leftist beliefs think of their views as the only way to properly think about life.
That, in turn, explains why anyone who opposes leftism is labeled anti-intellectual, anti-progress, anti-science, anti-minority and anti-reason (among many other pejorative epithets): leftists truly believe that there is no other way to think.
How successful has leftism been?
It dominates the thinking of Europe, much of Latin America, Canada, and Asia, as well as the thinking of the political and intellectual elites of most of the world. Outside of the Muslim world, it is virtually the only way in which news is reported and virtually the only way in which young people are educated from elementary school through university.
Only the United States, of all Western countries, has resisted leftism. But that resistance is fading as increasing numbers of Americans abandon traditional Judeo-Christian religions, lead secular lives, are educated by teachers whose views are almost uniformly left-wing and are exposed on a daily basis virtually exclusively to leftist views in their news and entertainment media.
And when there is resistance, the left declares it "extremist." Merely believing that marriage should remain defined as it has been throughout recorded history, as between a man and a woman, renders you an extremist. So, too, belief that government should be small -- the Tea Party position -- renders one an extremist. Last week, the managing editor of Time Magazine, Richard Stengel, said on MSNBC that the Salafis, the most radical Islamist sect, are "the Tea Party of Muslim democracy."
Even Christianity and Judaism, the pillars of Judeo-Christian values, the moral value system upon which America was founded and thanks to which it became the world's beacon of liberty, have been widely influenced by leftism. Many priests, ministers, rabbis and many Jewish and Christian seminaries are leftist in content and Jewish or Christian only in form.
Years ago, I debated one of the most prominent rabbis in the Conservative movement of Judaism on the issue of whether morality must be God-based. The Ivy League Ph.D., yarmulke-wearing rabbi argued that God was not morally necessary. If you want to understand why so many Jews vote left while nearly all the Western world's opposition to -- and frequently hatred of -- Israel emanates from the left, one explanation is this: For most American Jews, their religion is leftism, while Judaism is their ethnicity and culture. The Reform, and increasingly the Conservative, movements have, to a large extent, become political movements that use Hebrew and Jewish rituals to equate Judaism with progressive politics.
Within mainstream Protestantism and Catholicism, the same dominance of leftist values exists. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops largely holds the same social and economic views as the Democratic Party and The New York Times editorial page. It differs with the left with regard to same-sex marriage, abortion and religious freedom issues such as those pertaining to Catholic hospitals and government-funded contraception. As for mainstream Protestant denominations, they, too, are largely indistinguishable from leftism. Proof? Ask a liberal Protestant minister to name one important area in which he and leftism differ. Ask a liberal Reform or Conservative rabbi the same question. Their silence will be telling.
The truth is that the left has been far more successful in converting Jews and Christians to Leftism than Christianity and Judaism have been in influencing leftists to convert to Christianity or Judaism.
Finally, leftism has even attained considerable success at undoing the central American values of liberty, "In God We Trust," and "E Pluribus Unum," supplanting liberty with egalitarianism, a God-based society with secularism, and "E Pluribus Unum" with multiculturalism. (I make this case at length in "Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph" [HarperCollins].)
This triumph of the twentieth century's most dynamic religion -- leftism -- is why, even in the midst of an ongoing recession, the leftist candidate may win.  As I wrote in my last column, it's not just the economy, stupid.
Dennis Prager's latest book, "Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph," was published April 24 by HarperCollins. He is a nationally syndicated radio show host and creator of PragerUniversity.Com.

Obama's Secret be way more black than he seems to you now.


If one were trying to prove in court that MSNBC is crazily biased, you could do worse than submitting Rachel Maddow's Tuesday night show.
She was discussing the recently released June 2007 tape (See below) of Barack Obama using Hillary Clinton's black accent to tell an audience of black preachers that the U.S. government doesn't care about black people, Maddow explained with her typical leaden sarcastic wit that the tape reveals Obama's "secret plan to be way more black than he seems to you now."
(Though it's counterintuitive, apparently some higher-ups at MSNBC are convinced that Rachel's adorableness is working and they want more of it.)
Yes, it's that Obama is black, that's what the tape illustrates.
In the speech, Obama lied about America to portray the nation as irredeemably racist. Channeling Kayne West, Obama said the government doesn't "care about" black people in New Orleans. This was based on his assertion that New York City received more help from the federal government after 9/11, and Florida got more after Hurricane Andrew.
Unlike blacks in New Orleans, he said, those victims were considered "part of the American family."
Obama was a sitting senator when he spouted this nonsense. He had to know that months earlier, $100 billion in federal disaster relief had been sent to the Gulf states hit by Katrina -- or five times more than the disaster relief funds sent to New York after 9/11.
All this was edited out of the clips Rachel played from Obama's speech. This allowed her to smirk: "This is how (Obama) snuck into the White House, right? People didn't actually know he was this black, and if they had known he was this black, they never would have elected him. That's the idea here, right?"
Actually, Rachel, I think the point is that this half-black, private-schooled Hawaiian, born in 1961, is desperate for reasons to be angry at white America, so he can play-act Ralph Ellison in "The Invisible Man."
As noted in that great new book "Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From the Seventies to Obama," it's always the person with the least black heritage who is angriest at the anti-racism meetings. The ones who have never actually experienced anything resembling Jim Crow -- in fact, nothing but white suck-uppery -- are the most consumed with rage about things having nothing to do with their lives.
You know who's even angrier than the half-black Hawaiian about nonexistent racism in America? Pasty-white liberals on MSNBC.
Last week, Mitt Romney used the word "apartment." That font of racial understanding, Chris Matthews (who has no black friends, neighbors or employees), revealed on MSNBC that the word "apartment" is racist.
So please add that to your New Racist Dictionary, along with others common to native English speakers, such as "law and order," "welfare," "Chicago," "kitchen cabinet," "golfing" and "the." ("The" became racist when Donald Trump said he had a "great relationship with the blacks.")
Liberals reason that if a Republican said it, it must be racist, and proceed from there.
In 2008, John McCain's campaign ran a surprisingly effective ad called "Celeb." On MSNBC, it was adjudged racist.
The ad began with a clip of a Berlin crowd ecstatically cheering Obama (historically, the mark of a great leader), followed by photos of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, as the narrator called Obama "the biggest celebrity in the world." Then, the music turned ominous, and the narrator listed Obama's high-tax policies and opposition to offshore drilling, before saying that this was "the real Obama."
It must have taken hours to come up with something racist about that, but Jonathan Alter and Keith Olbermann whipped out their "Captain America Super-Racist Decoder Rings":
Alter, Newsweek columnist at the time: "The larger issue, I think, is clear -- which is they're trying to portray him as being uppity. Now, is that racist? I'm not sure."
Olbermann: "Well, if we're playing Password, and you say 'uppity,' the word that comes into my mind, that's racist, yes."
Wait -- who said "uppity," again? Did any Republican call Obama uppity? No. Did the ad call Obama uppity? No. Alter said "uppity": It's about Obama's uppityness. That much we know. Is that racist? That's for the public to decide. I remain neutral.
The ad had nothing to do with Obama being uppity. It was nearly the opposite, comparing him to lightweight celebrities.
In 2010, even Scott Brown's pickup truck came in for a charge of racism on MSNBC. Olbermann said that what Scott Brown voters truly opposed was having "an African-American president."
When this insane point was met with mild resistance from Howard Fineman, Keith produced the smoking gun: "What were the Scott Brown ads, though? Every one of the Scott Brown ads had him in a pickup truck."
I wonder if it was an "uppity" pickup truck ...
As soon as the racism hunters at MSNBC come up with a final and complete list of racist code words, they should release it to the public. But it needs to be aired on a network with lots of viewers, so they better send it to Fox News.
In a world bristling with imaginary "dog-whistle" racists, white liberal racists prefer bullhorns.

The following from: The Daily Caller
Exclusive: In heated ’07 speech, Obama lavishes praise on Wright, says feds ‘don’t care’ about New Orleans
As the speech continues, Obama makes repeated and all-but-explicit appeals to racial solidarity, referring to “our” people and “our neighborhoods,” as distinct from the white majority. At one point, he suggests that black people were excluded from rebuilding contracts after the storm: “We should have had our young people trained to rebuild the homes down in the Gulf. We don’t need Halliburton doing it. We can have the people who were displaced doing that work. Our God is big enough to do that.”
This theme — that black Americans suffer while others profit — is a national problem, Obama continues: “We need additional federal public transportation dollars flowing to the highest need communities. We don’t need to build more highways out in the suburbs,” where, the implication is, the rich white people live. Instead, Obama says, federal money should flow to “our neighborhoods”: “We should be investing in minority-owned businesses, in our neighborhoods, so people don’t have to travel from miles away.”
The solution, Obama says, is a series of new federal programs, including one to teach punctuality to the poor: “We can’t expect them to have all the skills they need to work. They may need help with basic skills, how to shop, how to show up for work on time, how to wear the right clothes, how to act appropriately in an office. We have to help them get there.”

Muslims around the world are trying their best to suppress in the United States and in the West at large

"You can apologize to those who are civil enough to accept an apology, but you cannot apologize to a fanatic." ~ Lee Harris
The following from: The American Enterprise Institute
Stop Apologizing for Our Liberties
You cannot apologize to a fanatic. It only serves to convince him that he was right all along, and that is the last course the United States should be pursuing at this critical juncture of world history. 

The last few weeks have witnessed a peculiar and disturbing spectacle: An American administration that has spent a great deal of time and energy apologizing for our liberties—in particular, for what many would regard as the foundation of all our other liberties, namely, the freedom to express our minds as we see fit. This signature freedom, of which Americans were once so boastful, has clearly become a source of befuddled embarrassment to the current administration and many of its liberal supporters. Nowhere has this been more evident than in the speech President Obama delivered before the UN Assembly yesterday. The president was bold and strong in making clear that there can be no excuse for the riots that have swept the Muslim world, but he was weak in his defense of our most fundamental freedom. The president came across as if he regarded the right to free speech as a bothersome and irritating nuisance that Americans put up with solely because it’s one of our quaint and bizarre local traditions, instead of celebrating it as a moral lesson to mankind and a blessing bequeathed to us by our ancestors. It did not seem to bother Obama in the least that he was apologizing to the world for the First Amendment, and that is very troubling.
Unfortunately, the president is not alone in his mixed feelings about the First Amendment in our post-Arab Spring era. Many of the same liberals who have always pushed the First Amendment as far as they possibly could have suddenly decided that it has been pushed a bit too far. Some of them seem to regret that the First Amendment to the Constitution left out a clause prohibiting insults to Islam and its prophet Mohammed. Of course, the Founding Fathers couldn’t think of everything, and it is hard to blame them for failing to foresee, more than two centuries in advance, just how useful such a prohibition would be in dealing with the Muslim cultural revolution known as the Arab Spring. For let there be no doubt about it, what is currently standing in the path of peaceful coexistence between the United States and the Muslim world is not the state of Israel, much less the producers of the film, Innocence of Muslims—no, it is that troublesome First Amendment. That is what is really fanning the flames of fanaticism, and nothing else—a moral utterly lost to the current administration in its misguided efforts to appease Muslim fury by pursuing a policy of abject apologetics.
Since the commencement of the current crisis, the Obama administration has repeatedly explained to the offended followers of the Prophet that the U.S. government had nothing to do with making the obnoxious film that, via its posting on YouTube, has set off weeks of bloody riot all across the Muslim world. This, of course, is quite true, but beside the point. Those who think that the rioters are foolish to attack the U.S. government for a film made by a lone crackpot are underrating the rioters’ intelligence. They know the U.S. government didn’t make the movie. What enrages them is that the U.S. government allowed such a movie to be made in the first place, and, even worse, that the government didn’t do the proper thing after it discovered who was responsible for making the blasphemous film—namely, to behead the blasphemer, in accordance with Sharia law. No doubt there are some moderate Muslims who would have probably been content with a less drastic punishment, such as hanging, and even a few liberal ones who would have been satisfied with a long prison term. But, across the spectrum, Muslims are not upset because of what our government did, but what it failed to do—punish an individual for exercising his constitutionally protected right to free expression.
Failure to understand this fact has produced the grotesquely inept apologies emanating from the Obama administration in the wake of the latest outbreak of Islamic fanaticism. Does the administration really believe that it is helping matters when it goes out of its way to pile one insulting epithet upon another in its zeal to show how ghastly and outrageous it thinks the movie is? The more the administration reviles and derides the movie, the more fuel it adds to the fire that it is attempting to douse. In effect, the administration is telling the Muslim world: “Yes, we are in perfect agreement that Innocence of Muslims is blasphemous and obnoxious, and you have every right to feel deeply outraged by it—but of course we don’t plan to do a thing about it.” Is it any wonder that the Muslim response is, “If you agree with us that the movie is blasphemous, how can you stand by and permit those who made it to escape their due punishment?” In short, the more the Obama administration attempts “to feel the pain” of offended Muslims, the deeper it offends them.
The problem is that the Obama administration cannot even pretend to feel the pain that Innocence of Muslims causes in the breasts of the Islamic faithful. But the administration is by no means alone on this point. There are not many Americans who can feel this pain—thank God. Sure, we too get offended by the constitutionally protected exercise of free speech that we happen to dislike. Some of us are offended by those who burn the American flag, neo-Nazi websites, sacrilegious depictions of Jesus, or by pornography. But we don’t riot about such things. We don’t threaten anyone’s life over such matters. We don’t proclaim huge bounties on the heads of those who have offered us this offense. We grumble and bitch, true, but we keep the peace.
This was not always the case. Before the Civil War, for example, advocates of the abolition of slavery risked their lives to express their deeply felt convictions—some even lost theirs when they were attacked by frenzied mobs. Even during my own childhood, white Southerners who publicly championed civil rights often faced the risk of physical violence for expressing their views, while black civil rights leaders knew perfectly well that they were risking their lives. But those days are thankfully behind us. Looking back at those who used violence to silence those who offended them, we can clearly see them for what they were—fanatics.
The triumph of toleration over fanaticism is at the heart of the great success story of the West, but it has left us at a loss in dealing with the Islamic revival that is perhaps the most significant fact of our time. In the news clips on TV, we can certainly see the genuine rage and pain of those Muslims who have been rioting over what they consider to be the ultimate blasphemy. We know they are not pretending. But we cannot even pretend to feel their rage, pain, and anguish. On the contrary, we can only feel our own indignation and disgust at their way of expressing their rage and pain. That is why it is so absurd when Western liberals seriously think they are helping matters by heaping scorn on the amateurish quality of the ill-starred movie, as if its lack of production values, a competent director, and an all-star cast were the root of the problem. They aren’t.
The root of the problem lies in the very values that the liberal tradition has historically prized, much to the benefit of the world—the freedom to speak out loud what we think inside. This is a freedom that no fanatic is prepared to tolerate. It is the freedom that the Muslim world is no more willing to embrace now, in the wake of the Arab Spring, than it was in centuries past, going back to the days of the Prophet.
Today, ominously, this is the very freedom that Muslims around the world are trying their best to suppress in the United States and in the West at large—and that is why our leaders must stop apologizing for our liberties. You can apologize to those who are civil enough to accept an apology, but you cannot apologize to a fanatic. It only serves to convince him that he was right all along.

Crime Pays...Political Crime Pays More...Just ask Eric Holder

"Develop a comprehensive 100-year plan to advance Islamist ideology throughout the world."
 ~ Muslim Brotherhood, The Project ~
Click on picture to enlarge.
Note: A Must Read...Obama has! See IP address here → :Obama's advisor Dalia Mogahed, has provoked controversy ..."a 100 year plan for subverting and overthrowing the West. "  

The following from: The Daily Caller

As college student, Eric Holder participated in ‘armed’ takeover of former Columbia University ROTC office

As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed,” The Daily Caller has learned.
Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions from The Daily Caller about whether Holder himself was armed — and if so, with what sort of weapon.
Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”
Black radicals from the same group also occupied the office of Dean of Freshman Henry Coleman until their demands were met. Holder has publicly acknowledged being a part of that action.
The details of the student-led occupation, including the claim that the raiders were “armed,” come from a deleted Web page of the Black Students’ Organization (BSO) at Columbia, a successor group to the SAAS. Contemporary newspaper accounts in The Columbia Daily Spectator, a student newspaper, did not mention weapons.
Holder, now the United States’ highest-ranking law enforcement official, has given conflicting accounts of this episode during college commencement addresses at Columbia, but both the BSO’s website and the Daily Spectator have published facts that conflict with his version of events.
Holder has bragged about his involvement in the “rise of black consciousness” protests at Columbia.
“I was among a large group of students who felt strongly about the way we thought the world should be, and we weren’t afraid to make our opinions heard,” he said during Columbia’s 2009 commencement exercises. “I did not take a final exam until my junior year at Columbia — we were on strike every time finals seemed to roll around — but we ran out of issues by that third year.”
Though then-Dean Carl Hovde declared the occupation of the Naval ROTC office illegal and said it violated university policy, the college declined to prosecute any of the students involved. This decision may have been made to avoid a repeat of violent Columbia campus confrontations between police and members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) in 1968.
The ROTC headquarters was ultimately renamed the Malcolm X lounge as the SAAS organization demanded. It later became a hang-out spot for another future U.S. leader, Barack Obama, according to David Maraniss’ best-selling ”Barack Obama: The Story.”
Holder told Columbia University’s graduating law students during a 2010 commencement speech that the 1970 incident happened “during my senior year,” but Holder was a freshman at the time. “[S]everal of us took one of our concerns — that black students needed a designated space to gather on campus — to the Dean [of Freshmen]’office. This being Columbia, we proceeded to occupy that office.”
Holder also claimed in his 2009 speech that he and his fellow students decided to “peacefully occupy one of the campus offices.” In contrast, the BSO’s website recounted its predecessor organization’s activities by noting that that “in 1970, a group of armed black students [the SAAS] seized the abandoned ROTC office.”
While that website is no longer online, a snapshot of its content from September 2010 is part of the database.
In a December 2010 GQ magazine profile of Holder, one of his Columbia friends confirmed that he and Holder were both part of the ROTC office takeover.
Holder particularly “connected with four other African-American students” at Columbia, correspondent Wil S. Hylton wrote. “We took over the ROTC lounge in Hartley Hall and created the Malcolm X Lounge,” said a laughing Steve Sims, one of those students.
Hylton described Sims as “the attorney general’s closest friend” and “a man Holder describes as his ‘consigliere.’

Will The Obama-Holder Cartel Be Arrested Before The Election? ...They should be!

Personal note: Both Obama and Holder should stand trial in Mexico and recieve the appropriate Mexican justice...Amen! Norman E. Hooben
Who are the human faces of the U.S. government's botched Fast and Furious gun-walking operation?
Mexico Stays on Gun Probe Despite US Report [ABC News]
Mexican prosecutors say they will continue investigating the botched-gun smuggling probe known as Operation Fast and Furious even after a U.S. Justice Department internal watchdog report concluded that more than a dozen officials should be disciplined.
In a Friday statement, the Mexican Attorney General's Office says it's looking at the document released this week to see what it could add to its own probe.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has been accused of knowing about the bungled operation, but the report cleared him and faulted mid-level and senior officials for not briefing him.
Fast and Furious allowed low-level "straw" buyers in gun-trafficking networks to leave with loads to track the guns to major traffickers. But some guns wound up at crime scenes in Mexico and the U.S.

Obama administration to contractors: Hold off announcing layoffs until after the election and taxpayers will cover your fines and costs
by Doug Powers @Michelle
According to the WARN Act, employers must provide 60 days notice to workers, labor union reps, local governments, etc., in advance of plant closings and mass layoffs that fall within the parameters of the Act.
Defense contractor layoffs due to sequestration cuts (that Obama is pictured above announcing in January of this year) are looming January 2, 2013. This means that federal law will require those companies to issue thousands of “you’re out of a job” notices mere days before the November election. If you’re the Obama administration this makes you more nervous than watching Joe Biden start to talk about Dunkin’ Donuts. What to do? Simple — ask the contractors to ignore the law and promise them that taxpayers will cover possible fines and extra costs associated with any subsequent non-compliance judgments:
The Obama administration issued new guidance intended for defense contractors Friday afternoon, reiterating the administration’s position that the companies should not be issuing layoff notices over sequestration.
The Labor Department issued guidance in July saying it would be “inappropriate” for contractors to issue notices of potential layoffs tied to sequestration cuts. But a few contractors, most notably Lockheed Martin, said they still were considering whether to issue the notices — which would be sent out just days before the November election.
But the Friday guidance from the Office of Management and Budget raised the stakes in the dispute, telling contractors that they would be compensated for legal costs if layoffs occur due to contract cancellations under sequestration — but only if the contractors follow the Labor guidance.
The guidance said that if plant closings or mass layoffs occur under sequestration, then “employee compensation costs for [Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification] WARN act liability as determined by a court” would be paid for covered by the contracting federal agency.
Read the memo for yourself (PDF). The federal government is offering to pay companies to violate federal law so as to not spoil one man’s re-election by exposing him to the fallout from the implementation of his own plan, and it’s all right there in an official memo for all to see (transparency promise: delivered).
Republicans so far have responded with the obligatory “strongly worded statements”:
Senate Republicans, who accused the White House of trying to hide job losses after the first guidance, said Friday that the new OMB statement “puts politics ahead of American workers.”
“The Obama Administration is cynically trying to skirt the WARN Act to keep the American people in the dark about this looming national security and fiscal crisis,” Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) said in a statement. “The president should insist that companies act in accordance with the clearly stated law and move forward with the layoff notices.”
Politics ahead of American workers? It puts politics ahead of the law.
And if the administration is as certain as they want to appear that these contractors are the few exceptions outlined in the WARN Act, then why does whoever wrote the memo seem resigned to the fact that a court would rule otherwise?
Specifically, if (1) sequestration occurs and an agency terminates or modifies a contract that necessitates that the contractor order a plant closing or mass layoff of a type subject to WARN Act requirements, and (2) that contractor has followed a course of action consistent with DOL guidance; then any resulting employee·compensation costs for WARN Act liability as determined by a court, as well as attorneys’ fees and other litigation costs (irrespective of litigation outcome), would qualify as allowable costs and be covered by the contracting agency, if otherwise reasonable and allocable.
It’s been asked: This is a big deal. So why isn’t it on the front page of every major newspaper in America?
It’s a sad state of affairs because it never even occurs to me to ask that question anymore. Besides, major newspapers these days have more important stories to put on the front page this year.

If you can't baffle them with English, dazzle them with Chinese

Your future?
 "...there is no choice but Mandarin Chinese." ...says so, right here!

What school you went?  Hey, don't knock my grammar! Before you get too smart I may have to explain it to you in Chinese... So there!
So we have a school system in Macon, Georgia that cannot educate students in the basic reading, 'rite'n, and ' all that important history of our once great Republic.
"Most of the 25,000 students are poor enough to qualify for free and reduced lunch, and about half don't graduate."
About half don't graduate....say whaaaaaat!
So what do you do when you cannot get the students to absorb enough of that there lurn'n stuff so that they can go out into the world and make something of themselves?  Now that's a dumb question!  You teach 'em Chinese!  What?  Do you think you have a better solution?  Hey, with this New World Order stuff taking our country to Gehenna, we might as well teach what the majority will be speaking...although I don't think Obama would approve, he tends to favor the Arabic languages and he can speak a little Bahasa (Indonesian).  ~ Norman E.

Some Ga. Schools Make Mandarin Mandatory

Public schools in Macon, Ga., and surrounding Bibb County have a lot of problems. Most of the 25,000 students are poor enough to qualify for free and reduced lunch, and about half don't graduate.

at Brookdale Elementary School in Macon, Ga.
Bibb County's Haitian-born superintendent Romain Dallemand came into the job last year with a bag of changes he calls "The Macon Miracle." There are now longer schools days, year-round instruction, and one mandate nobody saw coming: Mandarin Chinese for every student, pre-K through 12th grade.
"Students who are in elementary school today, by 2050 they'll be at the pinnacle of their career," Dallemand says. "They will live in a world where China and India will have 50 percent of the world GDP. They will live in a world where, if they cannot function successfully in the Asian culture, they will pay a heavy price."
This school year, Dallemand is rolling out Mandarin in stages, a few sessions a week, with the youngest kids starting first. In three years, it will be at every grade level.
Chinese Isn't Just For High Achievers
Instructors and other young teachers from China are being provided to Bibb County schools by a nearby Confucius Institute, one of a number of nonprofit cultural centers partially funded by the Chinese government. Beijing wants to spread Mandarin abroad, and at just $16,000 per instructor per year, the price is right for Dallemand.
"Well, it's a win-win for everyone," he says.
But not everyone in Bibb County sees it that way.
Some parents see a Communist regime enacting its geopolitical agenda on their children. The more common critique, however, is not political. It is the practical concern.
"Bibb County is not known for producing the highest-achieving graduates," says Macon resident Dina McDonald. "You'll see that many of them can't even speak basic English."
McDonald herself has a ninth-grader in the public schools and says she can imagine some students going into fields where Mandarin could be useful, like international business, technology or law. But with lower achievers, she says, "Do you want to teach them how to say, 'Do you want fries with that?' in Mandarin?"
Dallemand would rather ask what kind of education should be provided for every single student — not just some of them.
"We believe that every child can be successful if the adults around them create the conditions for them to be successful," he says.
Why Not Spanish?
Brazilian-born Marina Spears and her husband, Eric, are also Bibb County parents, and they agree that fluency in the languages of emerging economies is important. Their kids already speak Portuguese at home.
"We are obviously for a foreign language," Marina Spears says. "[But] I think in a perfect world, we would have been given the choice."
If parents insist, there is an opt-out provision for the Mandarin curriculum, but that's not the kind of choice they're talking about.
"While we do know that Mandarin is a critical language, another critical language here in the United States is Spanish," Eric Spears says.
Bibb high schools will continue to offer Spanish and French on top of Mandarin, but for most of the elementary kids, it's Chinese or nothing. Considering the Hispanic population doubled in Georgia over the last census period, the "Why not Spanish?" question is one Dallemand gets a lot.
"My wife is a Latina, and so I fully understand," he says. But "it is important for communities to educate our children for their future, not our past."
For that future, Dallemand says, there is no choice but Mandarin Chinese.

So what do you think?  We have an election coming up shortly and the way I see it, a vote for Romney, we will continue to speak English while a vote for Obama we won't understand what our children are saying.  Especially with that Mandarin dialect!  Hey, but that Venezuelan Communist, Hugo Chavez, wants us to speak Spanish and he's already telling us how we should vote (see: Hugo Chavez: If I were American I’d vote for Obama!).

That horrible stuff the main stream media refuses to touch

There's a ton of information on the Internet that pretty much describes what is going on that the main stream media (MSM) will not...absolutely will not, touch with a ten-foot pole!  Obviously the main stream public is still attached the MSM.  Whatever it takes to inform the general public is a monumental task and without that critical information, the complacent general public will have to take the majority of the blame when they wake up one morning and the end of America was on last week's re-runs (most likely in some language other than English).  Many bloggers attempt to get the message out but no appreciable change is noted in John Q. Public.  Then there's the 'I'm-to-lazy-to read' anything longer than the headline on the front page so that bunch is as clueless as do-do bird.  Because we have a growing illiterate population the draw-me-a-picture or show me a video group emerges.  And that brings us to YouTube...lots of  pictures and videos...must be a billion videos by now!
Well looking at a couple of videos that have a similar message that informs of that horrible stuff the MSM uses that ten-foot pole to vault over, we can get a glimpse of what the real reasons we are where we are...if only we can get more viewers.  The following videos give us a peek at what most of us are missing.  Just think of what 'hope and change' would do to the average voter if they had this information rather than the MSM's mis-information.  ~  Norman E.
