Has this president broken the law, lied under oath, or authorized war crimes?Yes, President Obama has broken the law on multiple occasions. Despite clearly stating, in a 2008 questionnaire, that the commander-in-chief is not lawfully empowered to ignore treaties duly ratified by the Senate, Obama has willfully failed to enforce the torture treaty, signed by Ronald Reagan and duly ratified by the Senate, that compels him to investigate and prosecute torture. As Sullivan put it earlier this year, “what Obama and Holder have done or rather not done is illegal.”Obama also violated the War Powers Resolution, a law he has specifically proclaimed to be Constitutionally valid, when committing U.S. troops to Libya without Congressional approval. Or as Sullivan put it in 2011, “Im with Conor. The war in Libya becomes illegal from now on. And the imperial presidency grows even more powerful.” On the subject of war crimes, Sullivan wrote that “Obama and attorney-general Eric Holder have decided to remain in breach of the Geneva Conventions and be complicit themselves in covering up the war crimes of their predecessors – which means, of course, that those of us who fought for Obamas election precisely because we wanted a return to the rule of law were conned.” In a separate entry, he went so far as to say that Obama is “a clear and knowing accessory to war crimes, and should at some point face prosecution as well, if the Geneva Conventions mean anything any more.” That seems rather farther than Noonan went in her column.Obama has not, as Sullivan points out, traded arms for hostages with Iran, or started a war with no planning for the inevitable occupation that would follow. But there are different questions that could be asked about Obama that would perhaps be more relevant to his behavior.Has he ordered the assassination of any American citizens in secret without due process? Did he kill any of their teenage kids without ever explaining how or why that happened? Has he refused to reveal even the legal reasoning he used to conclude his targeted killing program is lawful?Has he waged an unprecedented war on whistleblowers?Has he spied on millions of innocent Americans without a warrant or probable cause?Does he automatically count dead military-aged males killed by U.S. drones as “militants”?Did he “sign a bill that enshrines in law the previously merely alleged executive power of indefinite detention without trial of terror suspects”?There is more, as Sullivan knows, and it all amounts to a scandalous presidency, even if it happens that few Republicans care about the most scandalous behavior, and have instead spent almost a year now obsessing about Benghazi. The IRS scandal and Department of Justice leak-investigation excesses are worrisome, but the biggest scandals definitely go all the way to the top, and are still largely ignored even by commentators who have acknowledged that theyre happening. Sullivan has noted the stories as they broke, and seemed, for fleeting moments, to confront their gravity, noting the violation of very serious laws, and even once stating that Obama deserves to be prosecuted! Yet in response to Noonan, he writes, “So far as I can tell, this president has done nothing illegal, unethical or even wrong.” How inexplicably they forget.And Sullivan is hardly alone. At the New York Times, Mother Jones, The New Yorker, and beyond, exceptional journalists take great care to document alarming abuses against the rule of law, the separation of powers, transparency, and human rights perpetrated by the Obama Administration. On a given subject, the coverage leaves me awed and proud to be part of the same profession. But when it comes time for synthesis, bad heuristics take over. Confronted with the opportunism and absurdity of the GOP, Obamas sins are forgiven, as if he should be graded on a curve. His sins are forgotten, as if “this president has done nothing illegal, unethical or even wrong.”Yes. He. Has.
The immigration proposal pending in Congress would transform the nation’s political landscape for a generation or more — pumping as many as 11 million new Hispanic voters into the electorate a decade from now in ways that, if current trends hold, would produce an electoral bonanza for Democrats and cripple Republican prospects in many states they now win easily.
Beneath the philosophical debates about amnesty and border security, there are brass-tacks partisan calculations driving the thinking of lawmakers in both parties over comprehensive immigration reform, which in its current form offers a pathway to citizenship — and full voting rights — for a group of undocumented residents that roughly equals the population of Ohio, the nation’s seventh-largest state.
Reason has left the nation!
Was the 2012 Election Stolen?
As the 2012 election approached, conservative enthusiasm grew. Mitt Romney was drawing huge crowds while Barack Obama spoke in half-filled stadiums. All the passion lay on the right while the left was discouraged with a promised messiah who proved merely a politician. And the prediction was that, in contrast to 2008, Republican turnout would dwarf the tuned-out and carry the day. Hence the shock November 6 eve. How could Romney lose, especially by such a wide electoral margin?
Maybe he didn’t At least not legitimately.
Since then, the indications of electoral criminality have been overwhelming. First there are the anecdotes, such as the court-appointed Republican poll watchers illegally expelled from 13 Philadelphia polling places in wards that, in most cases, went 99 percent for Obama; the poll observers who noted what they considered vote fraud but were powerless to stop; and the Democrats who actually bragged about voting more than once.
Then there are the statistics, such as this staggering fact: in 59 Philadelphia districts, Romney failed to get even one vote. Final Obama-Romney tally: 19,605 to 0.
Huh? Not even one person voted GOP accidentally? I mean, there even was a Washington, D.C. councilman who inadvertently voted to approve faux marriage, saying that he didn’t know what he was voting for (that would be Marion Barry).
Next, consider this report from The Columbus Dispatch:
More than one out of every five registered Ohio voters is probably ineligible to vote.
In two counties, the number of registered voters actually exceeds the voting-age population: Northwestern Ohio’s Wood County shows 109 registered voters for every 100 eligible, while in Lawrence County along the Ohio River it’s a mere 104 registered per 100 eligible.
Another 31 counties show registrations at more than 90 percent of those eligible, a rate regarded as unrealistic by most voting experts. The national average is a little more than 70 percent.
[…]Of the Buckeye State’s 7.8 million registered voters, nearly 1.6 million are regarded as “inactive.”
Understand the significance. Years ago I was contacted by a Washington, D.C. community leader (who’ll remain anonymous) who told me that he had “done some computer work for several candidates over the years in DC” and had conducted his own study of urban vote fraud. He said that inner cities’ great transiency ensures that any given large metropolis will have a great number of voters who no longer live in their precinct of registration. These areas also have Democrat operatives known by the get-out-the-vote term “block captains” or “apartment captains,” people who know the lay of the land and thus what registered voters have left town. So all they need do then is vote for these people or have others do so. This is very easy, too, with few voter-ID laws. And this is why Democrats oppose these laws so vehemently.
Now consider that Obama “won” Ohio by 100,000 votes. This means that to flip the state, Democrat surrogates had to illegally “activate” only 6.25 percent of its 1.6 million inactive voters.
Note also that Ohio secretary of state Jon Husted did ask Eric Holder’s DOJ for help negotiating conflicting federal laws pertaining to purging ineligible voters from the rolls. The DOJ’s ultimate response? “No comment.”
Yet a voter doesn’t even have to be inactive, just disengaged. For example, when the aforementioned Patrick Moran offered advice on surrogate voting, he told an undercover reporter to masquerade as a pollster and call a targeted individual to make sure he wasn’t planning to vote. And this is nothing new. In fact, liberal leg-thriller Chris Matthews himself admitted that it has been going on for years.
Then there is the case of the missing military ballots. As Rachel Alexander at Town Hall reported:
The conservative-leaning military vote has decreased drastically since 2010 due to the so-called Military Voter Protection Act that was enacted into law the year before. It has made it so difficult for overseas military personnel to obtain absentee ballots that in Virginia and Ohio there has been a 70% decrease in requests for ballots since 2008. In Virginia, almost 30,000 fewer overseas military voters requested ballots than in 2008. In Ohio, more than 20,000 fewer overseas military voters requested ballots. This is significant considering Obama won in both states by a little over 100,000 votes.
Frankly, it is inconceivable that military interest in voting could’ve dropped so drastically given conservatives’ passion this election season. The damning conclusion? The Obama machine wants our soldiers to shed blood while it sheds their votes.
Striking as all this is, however, it’s likely just a partial picture. As with all crime, it’s a given that the discovered vote fraudsters represent only a tiny percentage of the total. And what about vote-fraud methods we haven’t even thought of yet? Remember, the Democrats have been honing this act for many, many years.
And vote fraud is a Democrat domain. Liberals are the situational-values set, people who for years insisted that right and wrong is relative and that if it feels good, do it. And what feels good to them at election time is stealing votes to win — and they do it. They relish it, in fact. Like the liberal who addressed Bill Clinton’s it-depends-on-what-is-is infidelity and adamantly told me, “He did the right thing,” leftists love the con. To pull a fast one like private eye Jim Rockford, fool everyone, and get away with it is like winning the Nobel Prize in Prevarication in their world. Thus, it’s assured that there’s no small number of liberals who are currently brimming with pride at having negated the votes of countless knuckle-dragging conservatives.
Having said this, we can’t be sure about the exact magnitude of the vote fraud. But my judgment is this:
The election was likely stolen.
And whatever Barack Obama is presently, I don’t believe he will be a legitimate president come January 20.
This is why Congressman Allen West was right not to concede his Florida race. And, frankly, if Romney believes that the election may have been stolen nationally, he should withdraw his concession.
Yes, but so is vote fraud on the scale perpetrated by Obama’s minions. And people needn’t fear creating a national crisis — we are already in a national crisis. The only question is whether good Americans will stand and be counted or allow 2012 to mark our official descent into banana-republic status.
I find it funny how so many are saying that Obama won and we should just “shut up” and not talk about him. Of course that makes zero sense. Seriously, not only did Bush win his reelection, but they are STILL talking about him. Obama didn’t exactly win a landslide either, no matter how they spin it. Three million votes, that’s it, and there are questions hanging over this election, bigger questions than in either of Bush’s campaigns. Considering there is a full effort to radically transform the United States, something that has nothing to do with race, gender, or birth control, coupled with a sour economy that is likely to get worse, don’t expect people to fall in line with the Obama faithful. That’s simply not going to happen. If Romney had won, the liberals would still fight. In fact, that was one advantage I saw in a Romney victory; the media would actually watch him instead of spouting off his talking points. As the federal government moves beyond it’s limits further and takes a one size fits all approach to the states and the people (regardless of who is in the White House or the Congress), trampling our rights in the process, there will be division, and yes, it will get louder.
Liberal Hippie Boomers 1968- “We want to be free! We want to be free to do what we want to do! We want to be free to get high and make love. And we want to live without being hassled by The Man, or fighting in some stupid war. Never trust The Man! F*ck the Establishment! Power to the people!”
Liberal Hippie Boomers 2012-”We want to rule! We want to tell you what to do! We want to continue to tear everything down, and force everyone to conform because we are The Man! We sold out our inheritance from the Greatest Generation, and will bankrupt our grandkids on the way out! Not a problem to send others to fight in stupid wars because it ain’t our asses on the line now. We are the Establishment! The power is OURS!”
The largest generation, the one’s that set out to tear down everything handed to them by the blood sweat and tears of the Greatest Generation, the ones who came of age name calling and screaming to be left alone are now the ones in charge. The liberals of that generation gave us Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Kerry, Jerry Brown, Bill Ayers, wackos like Jane Fonda and Roseanne Barr, and yes, Barack Obama is their love child.
Funny how time has turned them into the fascists they accused “The Man” of being. Funny how they grew to be champions of Statism, of elitism, of conformity. Fascists in tie-dye are no less scary. They inherited the richest nation on earth, they made themselves fat by selling off their inheritance, (our inheritance) and now, in the midst of their economic disaster, they are stealing from their kids, their grandkids, and beyond. They had the numbers, and they took over, and everywhere they did is now a shadow of it’s former self. They flee those bankrupt cesspools with inflated pensions and run off to conservative states to tell them how to live. Stay in the cesspools you created. Enjoy the fruits of your handy work.
They fought, and continue to fight to tear everything down, but the fact is they offer nothing of substance, no real replacement. Smoke and mirrors, false promises, and lies. Sure, they had a good soundtrack, but they charged one hell of a royalty on it. They came in with no sense of gratitude for what was given to them, and they’ll leave with no sense of obligation toward those they leave behind. In their minds, they were owed it. They created it. Their actions were right, and they will force the changes they desire, right or wrong. Thanks Meathead!
What a long strange trip indeed!
PHOENIX (AP) — Investigators for an Arizona sheriff’s volunteer posse have declared that President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is definitely fraudulent.
Members of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s posse said in March that there was probable cause that Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April 2011 was a computer-generated forgery.
Now, Arpaio says investigators are positive it’s fraudulent.
Mike Zullo, the posse’s chief investigator, said numeric codes on certain parts of the birth certificate indicate that those parts weren’t filled out, yet those sections asking for the race of Obama’s father and his field of work or study were completed.
Zullo said investigators previously didn’t know the meaning of codes but they were explained by a 95-year-old former state worker who signed the president’s birth certificate. Zullo said a writer who published a book about Obama’s birth certificate and was aiding investigators let them listen in on an interview he conducted of the former state worker.
The Obama campaign declined to comment on Arpaio’s allegations.

I love Ann Coulter, and once again, she nails the issue dead on. Too important not to read! Clearly there is no desire to enforce current immigration policy, or to hold any level of sane immigration policy or action. Immigration Reform is code for Open Borders. Advocates for illegal immigrants demand nothing less. Obama and the Dems are intent on giving exactly that (although in all fairness the GOP as failed on this issue also), and here is why…
Viva la Raza! Viva la Reconquista!
Before taking the oath of office, Barack Obama vowed to fundamentally transform the United States. He has certainly done so. For example, Obama has:
– destroyed the job market;
– sent billions of taxpayer dollars to Wall Street, companies overseas, his campaign contributors and public sector unions;
– forced the passage of a wildly unpopular national health care law on a purely partisan vote;
– come out for gay marriage;
– refused to enforce laws on illegal immigration;
– eliminated the work requirement for welfare.
How can a country that elected Ronald Reagan have Obama tied in the polls with Mitt Romney?
The answer is: It’s not the same country.

I recently watched FarenHYPE 911, which although dated was very good. My first time watching it. I didn’t feel the need to watch a movie to tell me Michael Moore is an idiot and a liar, but it was on Netflix so I watched it. It’s sad to reflect back on how we have changed, how facts have little to do with anything anymore. Much like the O.J. Simpson trial, the gap between us is wide and impossible to cross. Since that trial, that division has come to define where we are at today.
The left, which included Obama, attacked Bush on every angle. I’m not looking to say that the attacks were correct or not, but I do find it interesting that the same people who were concerned about wars and Constitutional rights are strangely silent about Obama. In fact, the only scrutiny he seems to get is outside of the mainstream media, and any scrutiny, any statement of concern, is attacked as racism or extremism. If you were concerned then, how could you not be now? Be it war, Constitutional rights and safeguards, the budget or the economy, Obama has dwarfed George W. Bush in a very short time.
Also, someone has to say it, Bush is gone people. Obama had the House and the Senate, and while the House was lost, he still retains the Senate. He had the power few presidents ever get, and yet all he has is blame, attacks, and excuses. Would W have been able to get away with that? In fact would any president at any point in our nation’s history? Strange days indeed.
I’m going to forgo the links on the following, as I’m lazy tonight, but if so inclined, please look for yourself.
We have had the NDAA, and numerous executive orders that can suspend the Constitution, signed by Obama. We are one event away from the death of the Republic. The left would be screaming if Bush or Romney held such powers, especially if they showed Obama’s level of disdain for the rule of law and Constitutional protections. The media would be watching like a hawk, reporting on every detail. They’d even make up lies to rile the people, and justify it as a legitimate concern.
It is a legitimate concern, but no one is watching. The most dangerous politicians are the ones no one watches and/or the ones who are blindly trusted. In Obama’s case we have both. The mainstream media has become an extension of the DNC, and they are neither watching or concerned. You know, Tom and Katy are far more interesting.
9/11 ushered in a change in our rule of law and our liberties. That has been expanded under Obama. Given the current situation, imagine a major attack against something like the London Olympics, one which made 9/11 look small. A worse case scenario could be closer than we think.
Bush actively engaged Islamic terrorists, with our forces fighting them in the Middle East, our people torturing for information and acting on the information they gathered. This led to the death of Bin Ladin. In contrast, Obama has largely disengaged from that pursuit. To look at the Department of Justice, you’d think the Tea Party brought down the World Trade Center. He has empowered the radical muslims in the Middle East while dropping protections on the border. He has suspended deportations.
Exactly how far off do we think a major terrorist event is? Our enemies remain determined to hit us, and we have done everything to aid them. You would think they wanted another 9/11. Our efforts to betray our allies and aid our enemies have not changed the latter’s feelings toward us. It was Clinton’s eight years of ignoring the obvious threat that led to 9/11; how much greater the treat with Obama? Carter left us a terrorist state in Iran, Obama has given Iran allies in Egypt and Libya.
One event, and the Republic is dead.
Liar in Chief, betrayer of our allies, friend to terrorists, and architect of our destruction! Fact is, you could write several books on this man’s failures and lies. Check your local book store. Since 9-11 we remained committed to fighting terrorists, but for all the effort, all the cost, Obama has turned around and toppled nations to place the terrorists in command, those committed fully to our destruction. The man condemned the invasion of Iraq and the removal of the tyrant Saddam, and yet takes down Egypt and Libya, all while holding Syria and Iran in his sights and declaring US as terrorists. Oh, did I mention the economy?
