Obama Justice Department Colluded with ACLU to Attack Arizona’s SB 1070

Judicial Watch


Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today announced that it has received documents from the Department of Justice (DOJ) that show DOJ worked hand-in-hand with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in mounting their respective legal challenges to SB 1070, Arizona’s get-tough illegal immigration law. The documents, obtained by Judicial Watch pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed on June 17, 2010, include email exchanges between DOJ officials and ACLU staff.

Included among the documents obtained by Judicial Watch is a July 27, 2010, email exchange between Lucas Guttentag, leader of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project and the DOJ’s Edwin Kneedler, Deputy Solicitor General:

Was Judge John Roll the Real Target is Tucson?

Obama recently signed an executive order allowing the feds to confiscate all 401ks and retirement accounts. Our media forget to inform us of this fact. A single judge adjudicated that Obama did not have that authority and stopped the confiscation.

Federal Judge John Roll … The judge, USDC court of Arizona Presiding Judge Roll, was shot and died on Saturday by a “crazed gunman.” The historical connotations are similar to Kennedy/Oswald in several ways.

If I had a 401k and/or a retirement account I would convert such to an investment in a tangible asset made of metal. Either you get rid of it, or Obama will get rid of it for you. Either way I do not believe retirement accounts will exist in the near future.

TWO … DID … I’d like to know why another question isn’t being asked re the Tucson massacre.

Federal Judge John Roll –for Arizona–was killed. And yet he’s only mentioned anywhere as just another victim.

Here’s the question: Why is there possibly no connection being made that about 72 hours before he was killed, on Friday, he issued a critical “preliminary ruling” against the Obama administration to prevent them from acting on an FDR Executive Order (6102), which allowed the government to seize personal savings when no proof of a crime was committed?

(“USA v. $333,520.00 in US Currency et al”, Case number: 4:2010cv00703 Filed Nov 30, 2010).

My first question was: Who was the actual target, Giffords or Roll? or both (conveniently at the same place)?

While the possibility that Loughner was under mind control has been disparaged in the press, the knowledge of the existence of such a program, and known past CIA/FBI involvement in such incidents, why would there not be the possible question of a connection?

Too hot a potato..?

The word’s out “don’t dare?”

Why does a deeper search for truth–even with the possibility of the above being it or not–never seem to occur?

And then hours of repetitious blathering and speculation and opinionating by ignorant anchors.

We deserve better. We deserve the truth, “the whole truth,” like it or not; government, Obama’s included, has become far too cloaked in secrecy, and woe to those who disagree.

I long for the day when journalism once again shines the light, rather than supporting the cloak of darkness.

(holding breath….holding….holding….)
Thank you.


Greenhouse Gas Observatories Downwind from Erupting Volcanoes

by DefendUSx

By Andrew Walden
Problems in the collection of atmospheric CO2 data parallel other absurdities in the global warming fraud. The Climategate scandal is exposing the massive and systematic fraud behind the fabrication of the worldwide temperature record necessary to make the case for global warming. But what about the record of atmospheric CO2?

The U.S. NOAA openly admits to producing a CO2 record which “contains no actual data.” NOAA temperature stations sited in ways that artificially inflate temperatures have been exposed over the past two years. CO2 observatories have similar flaws. Two of the five NOAA “baseline” stations are downwind from erupting volcanoes. All five are subject to localized or regional CO2 sources.

President Obama’s Annual Performance Evaluation

Canada Free Press

By Dennis Jones  Sunday, December 6, 2009

In the business world most executives get an annual performance evaluation that reviews the past year’s accomplishments or shortcomings and compares them to previously agreed upon goals and accountabilities.  As 2009 draws to a close, the following is a recap and review that President Obama might receive for his performance over the past year starting with his previous experience:

Prior Relevant Experience

  • 3 years in the US Senate (two spent running for President) – no major legislation authored, only credit taken for legislation introduced by others.
  • 7 years in the Illinois state senate, a part-time calling that allowed him to serve as a part-time law professor.
  • Three years as a “community organizer”.

Selected Domestic Policy Accomplishments

  • Tripled the budget deficit to $1.4 Trillion (daily interest on the national debt is now over a billion dollars a day).
  • Pushed for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, aka the pork-laden Stimulus of $787 billion that he personally promised would keep unemployment from rising over 8%. In fact, unemployment been over 8% since the ARRA was passed in February and in the 10% range every month since August.
  • Championed ill-conceived Cap and Trade legislation based on faulty and fraudulent science.¬† If passed, this legislation would amount to a substantial tax on every American and severely crimp the economy.
  • Made health care the number one issue in America and socialized medicine the country’s priority when polls reflect that it is not the first priority of Americans.¬† Meanwhile 8 million jobs have been lost in the worst economic slump since the great depression, Iran and North Korea are accelerating their nuclear programs uncontested and both federal and many state budget deficits are unsustainable.
  • Agreed to give Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, found by the 9/11 Commission Report to be the principal architect of the 9/11 attacks, and four other terrorists legal protection and potential not guilty verdicts via a civil trial nearby the site of the attacks.

Selected Foreign Policy Accomplishments

  • Failed to get Russia to agree to sanction Iran for its nuclear programs at a cost of selling out Eastern Europe and giving up the anti-ballistic US missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic
  • Apologized for America and expressed solidarity with Muslims in his Cairo speech during his four nation trip to the Middle East and Europe. “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism—it is an important part of promoting peace,” he said.
  • Schmoozed with dictators Hugo Chavez and Daniel Ortega at the 34-country Summit of the Americas and again apologized for America: “We have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms. But I pledge to you that we seek an equal partnership. There is no senior partner and junior partner in our relations.”
  • Accomplished absolutely nothing on his recent trip to Asia widely panned by the media of both the US and Asia.
  • Pondered what to do in Afghanistan for 100 days and then committed more troops. General McChrystal advised him to commit more troops in his one five-minute meeting with Obama three months ago.

Miscellaneous Selected Accomplishments in Random Order:

  • Ceded the most power to unelected officials in history creating he largest number of Czars, not elected and not confirmed by Congress, ever.¬† Their qualifications will be another column.
  • Changed the image of the US from strength to weakness by his high profile bowing to the King of Saudi Arabia, to Vladimir Putin and to the Japanese Emperor.
  • Scolded CEO’s for travel expenses then took Mrs. Obama to a Broadway show via presidential jet.
  • Failed to bring the Olympics to Chicago after a very public personal effort.¬† Both he and Mrs. Obama jetted off to Copenhagen, on separate jets, in a highly visible lobbying trip that was unconvincing to the Olympic committee.
  • Won the Nobel Peace Prize for accomplishing precisely nothing.
  • Sold a flight on Air Force One that over-flew Manhattan and panicked the city.
  • Gave high-profile thoughtless gifts, an Ipod to the Queen of England and to Prime Minister Gordon Brown a box of 25 DVD’s of classic American movies.¬† In contrast, the Prime Minister gave Mr. Obama a very thoughtful and symbolic gift—an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet that complemented the oak from the Gannet’s sister ship, HMS Resolute, carved to make a desk that has sat in the Oval Office in the White House since 1880.
  • Achieved a record number of cabinet picks that subsequently withdrew due to tax other ethics problems.
  • Building a cabinet with the least amount of private sector experience since 1900. Less than 10% of the cabinet members have private sector experience.
  • Met with Andy Stern, President of Big Labor’s SEIU 7 times in a record 22 visits (the most frequent visitor according to white house logs) after pledging to keep lobbyists out of the White House.

Summary of Performance:

  • Performance generally unsatisfactory.
  • Ineffective, lacks leadership skills and experience.
  • Has difficulty focusing on agreed-upon priorities.
  • Not fiscally responsible or able to adhere to a budget.
  • Exhibits poor judgment when dealing with peers and colleagues.
  • Not suitable for rehire.

A Few Buttons Missing

Dec.6, 2009

The New Media Journal

I always thought that I had a permanent case of Attention Deficit Syndrome…until now.

Once this man became president, he got my full attention and I haven’t been able to get rid of him since. We can now note that amongst his many self-acclaimed attributes is that of a therapist. He has solved my self-induced affliction. I now know — and we all should know by this time — that our culture, our way of life, our idealistic ideologies are being attacked as never before in our history. Honor, ethics, logic, morality and common sense no longer permeate the sensibilities of those governing our nation. It is past time for he and his group of treasonous thugs to get our full attention.

A coup has taken place in America. Our nation is no longer controlled by “the people.” Our domestic enemies are now officially in power. We are no longer free, we just think we are — and it has happened on our watch. Basically, we are in the midst of a bloodless coup by American Bolsheviks. Up to this point it differed from the Russian Revolution of 1917-1922 in the sense that there were battlefields and blood was shed at that time. The similarity is in the fact that Russia was deeply in debt.. The end result was inevitable.

We are deliberately being thrown into a deep fiscal hole today by a consort of radicals who know Russian history better than they do American history. Their present strategy and tactics show an uncanny similarity. Every plan, every plot, every program is an antithesis to the culture and the way of life which made America great. We are and have been attacked on a more subtle and sophisticated front.

In just the first 100-days of his tenure, Obama’s words and actions demonstrated that he is no friend of the country he leads. His disdain for our flag and our national anthem have been quite evident. As for the constitution he is quoted as stating that it is a Charter of negative liberty. He does not honor our military or do honor to it. In his speeches, especially to those of the third world you will find a constant reference to the Holy Koran; civilizations debt to Islam; that Islam promotes peace; that his country, our country is not a Christian nation; and that America is not and never will be at war with Islam. The latter phrase raises the question, of course, as to who is at war with whom today? It is bizarre to even believe that this individual is the president of the United States. In recent months the only time we heard a kind word for this country was when he traveled to Norway as a shill for Daly in Chicago. The Olympic committee didn’t buy it indicating that they knew him better than his own countrymen.

He is flanked by a bevy of radical stalwarts who keep propping him up at every turn. It is today a legislative body which recognizes no limits on its power. It doesn’t care about the Constitution, it doesn’t care about your unalienable rights, it doesn’t care about the liberties protected by the Bill of Rights, it doesn’t even read the laws it writes. Upon being sworn into office each member of Congress and the President swore to provide for the national defense of the country and its citizenry both here and abroad. From their first steps to now, they have failed.

At the time of this writing, the moderates in both houses are using extortion for their votes to pass the Health Care Reform Bill. According to a November 2009 article in the Washington Post, a congress woman from Louisiana is setting the tone for selling her vote. One of many. This is another, of many unconstitutional maneuvers created by the liberals as souls are sold, our constitution is shredded and money is confiscated.

The Congress of the United States has become a flea market for elected auctioneers. It is difficult to believe how the ignorance of the American public has created a situation whereby it is going to lose its Constitutional Republic and slip into an age of repression and tyranny.

In Nicaragua, London, Turkey, Venezuela, France, and Czechoslovakia he unabashedly laid the groundwork for blaming this country on many fronts. He has stated that we have allegedly shown arrogance to Europe. He referred to Roosevelt and Churchill as inferior leaders. That we are the one’s responsible for the Mexican border problems and violence. That America is not a Christian nation. And the deadly drone is against our country goes on and on..

This party of hard core leftists has a history of presenting its country with mediocre, weak-kneed and inferior leadership. And this country has a contemporary history of apathy and continually being behind the curve.

An attention deficit syndrome, if you will….

In Lyndon Johnson we were faced with a puppet who couldn’t make a decision or pull his head out of the sand. In Jimmy Carter our military had been sufficiently decimated to where a relatively simple rescue mission became a boondoggle. In giving away the Panama Canal to Panama he gave the Chinese their most strategic tactical weapon. In Bill Clinton we would have been better served to allow him playing yo-yo with his zipper instead of pardoning convicted enemies of this nation as well as allowing thousands of illegals to be sworn in as American citizens illegally. In Jack Kennedy they had a fighting chance for real leadership when he stood up to the Russians and wouldn’t allow nuclear devices to enter Cuba. Unfortunately, he blew it when he broke his promise to the free Cuba fighters by not giving them the air cover promised which would have allowed them to win back their homeland. In the latter part of the 20th century Harry Truman stood above the rest.

He became our president only by accident and was the sole survivor of their string of unqualified leaders.. His courage in allowing the bomb to be dropped saved hundreds and thousands of lives but to this day is reviled by those in power. In Obama they were able to find the lemon who topped them all. They found an individual to their liking who also embraced their love and admiration of Marxist doctrine. An individual who on his way to the White House wouldn’t wear the American flag on his lapel for fear that it would show that he is taking sides.

Who would not sing the national anthem nor raise his hand in acknowledgment. Whose wife, in writing, professed hatred for our country.

In his drive for the presidency he stated “It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. We as a Nation of warring people, should conduct ourselves as the nations of Islam, where peace prevails.” He referred to our country as a nation of warring people and the nations of Islam as peaceful. On what planet has this man been living? How could the American people have listened to this and not been completely alarmed?

We were not ready for war in WW I —- We were not ready for war in WW II —- in both instances we lucked out thanks to miscalculations by the enemy. Relatively speaking we were ready in both Korea and Vietnam but our own built- in Quislings with the aid of the news media continued to bombard our psyche and demoralize our military. Even luck can become impatient and we sense in this instance that an attack on our freedoms and our way of life from within may be our undoing. These bumbling Bolsheviks are not going to let us off that easy this time. We have bared our underbelly.

We are already seeing the signs of despotic rule from enlarging the layers of governmental agencies to suffocation of the masses with excruciating debt and higher taxes. The symptoms are quite evident with one of the most bizarre plug-ins to management concepts and aims ever devised by a political administration.

Over 30 Czars have been appointed not only opening a new layer in government but with the most inane duties and responsibilities ever created by an administration. To allow you a modicum of laughter through the tears check out a few of the positions. Afghanistan Czar; Auto Recovery Czar; California Water Czar; Car Czar (not to be confused with the Auto Recovery Czar); Faith Based Czar; Sudan Czar; Green Jobs Czar and the list continues to where you will begin to feel that you’re in LaLa land. When you send a man-child to purchase a loaf of bread you must not be surprised when he comes back with a Tootsie Roll. He makes the most inept look good. As disciples of the Communist Manifesto their steps taken thus far run hand in hand and step by step to the dogma of Marx, Lenin and Stalin. As follows note for yourself.

First you must make sure to control and/or own all or most of the communications media.

Second is to control and eventually own the industry and commerce of the country.

Third is the confiscation of all firearms owned by the citizenry.

Then the piece de resistance will be the unassailable and absolute control of the military.

One might protest and remark in frustrated anguish, “but everything they’re doing is unconstitutional and contrary to the bill of rights.” Absolutely it is, but it has been snipped piece by piece for many years without resistance and today they have the weight and the bravado via the election box to spending considerable time stomping on them.

This gang of thuggish liberalists are on the move. They will not stop until the American people wake up. We must understand and be committed to the knowledge that they will not stop until they have destroyed our freedom, confiscated our private property and seized our money through continual and exorbitant taxation.

We are now pretty well aware that Health Care Reform has nothing to do with Health Care Reform. It has to do with growth of governmental power over all our lives with a stranglehold on the life of each American citizen.

As relayed by an internet pundit. “Let me get this straight. Obama’s health care plan will be written by a committee whose head says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn’t read it, signed by a president who smokes, funded by a treasury chief who did .not pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, administered by a cluster of unqualified appointees and financed by a country that is now broke What could possibly go wrong? Since attaining their offices less than a year ago we have not witnessed any semblance of free enterprise, creativity, productivity or tangible positive results.

Although the camouflage today centers around our bankrupt industries and the wholesale foreclosure of homes and properties the real problem is flying under the radar as these people go about tearing apart our military and shredding our defenses. We must bring to our conscious awareness that this individual and his treasonous cohorts are bent on a strategy to totally disarm our country. His continual yammering about world peace is backed with his blaming our country for all the wars and all the evils in the world. He is backing this up with slowly dismantling our defense shields, cutting the money necessary for defense weapon research, dwindling our armed forces on the ground, in the air and on the sea while alienating our allies. Our luck may be running out.

Thomas Jefferson, in his infinite wisdom, has reminded us that “those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not.”


The Post & E-Mail

Dec. 6, 2009

Obama’s presidential campaign was hailed for its forceful imagery, but after 11 months the public has come to understand the undisputed facts about him, don’t fit the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.

(Dec. 4, 2009) — Georgia’s representative in the U.S. House, Nathan Deal announced in early November that he and 10 House colleagues were going to sign a joint letter, asking Obama to publicly reveal his birth certificate,.

The simple enough question was rebuffed and ridiculed by the Main Stream Media, and even the Savannah Morning News, as if a birth certificate was some sort of private journal or diary of past affairs.

The mere fact that the liberals and progressives ridiculed Nathan Deal — whose only interest is to quiet the nation — shows that they have no substantive reason to oppose the request.  It further shows that they know that Obama cannot oblige Deal and his co-signatories, for in Democratic circles nothing is a secret.

What will Obama say to Nathan Deal?

The answer must come soon.  Deal said that he was to send his letter after Thanksgiving.  Any delay on the part of Barack Hussein Obama to oblige Deal, will only further erode his political influence in Washington, D.C..

Obama has been effectively checkmated by the concerted effort of public support, publicized lawsuits on the eligibility question, publicity campaigns such as those of World Net Daily and Charles Kerchner to put the issue in the face of liberals on a constant basis, and blogs and bloggers the world over.

If Obama obliges him, then the online image of a Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) provided by his campaign will be proven a forgery, according to the consensus of opinion of citizens who have studied the images posted on the net and found some images of the allegedly same document, contain a HI State seal and some do not.

If Obama does refuses, however, it will only further confirm that he has something to hide.

Palins remark that it is a valid issue and Ogden’s resignation as Deputy U.S. Attorney General in the same week, following the sending of Nathan Deal’s letter, appear to be diagnostic signs that the political establishment understands the risks and imminent crisis about to break. The publicity garnered by the testimony of the U.S. Marine, who goes by the nik, Race Bannon, only further tilt the Obama regime towards political implosion.

Even the pulse of Obama’s political support on the net tells the tale:  a lull and quiet among them posting comments at opposition blogs is noticeable.  There remain only the violent, the perverse and the somewhat mad to carry on the cheers of “Change,” which were the mind numbing drum beat of the Obama for American campaign, just 14 months ago.

The political momentum of the nation now follows diverse roads to the same destination, and the resulting fireworks are going to be much brighter and invigorating than those  of any Fourth of July in many a year!

ISNA Infiltration: “This is criminal and the Ft. Hood base commander should be fired right now.

Dec. 4, 2009

Atlas Shrugs

Prepare to be infuriated.

It’s been brought to my attention by several reliable sources that the Defense Department has brought Louay Safi to Fort Hood as an instructor, and that he has been lecturing on Islam to our troops in Fort Hood who are about to deploy to Afghanistan. Safi is a top official of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and served as research director at the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT).

Worse, last evening, Safi was apparently permitted to present a check (evidently on behalf of ISNA) to the families of the victims of last month’s Fort Hood massacre. A military source told the blogger Barbarossa at the Jawa Report: “This is nothing short of blood money. This is criminal and the Ft. Hood base commander should be fired right now.”

ISNA was identified by the Justice Department at the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing conspiracy trial as an unindicted co-conspirator. The defendants at that trial were convicted of funding Hamas to the tune of millions of dollars. This should have come as no surprise. ISNA is the Muslim Brotherhood’s umbrella entity for Islamist organizations in the United States. It was established in 1981 to enable Muslims in North America “to adopt Islam as a complete way of life” — i.e., to further the Brotherhood’s strategy of establishing enclaves in the West that are governed by sharia. As I detailed in an essay for the April 20 edition of NR, the Brotherhood’s rally-cry remains, to this day, “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Koran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” The Brotherhood’s spiritual guide, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who issued a fatwa in 2004 calling for attacks on American forces in Afghanistan, openly declares that Islam will “conquer America” and “conquer Europe.”

Also established in 1981, the IIIT is a Saudi funded think-tank dedicated, it says, to the “Islamicization of knowledge” — which, Zeyno Baran (in Volume 6 of the Hudson Institute’s excellent series, “Current Trends in Islamist Ideology”) has aptly observed, “could be a euphemism for the rewriting of history to support Islamist narratives.” Years ago, the Saudis convinced the United States that the IIIT should be the military’s go-to authority on Islam. One result was the placement of Abdurrahman Alamoudi to select Muslim chaplains for the armed forces. Alamoudi has since been convicted of terrorism and sentenced to 23 years in federal prison.

Congressional ad mainstreams Obama eligibility

Dec. 4, 2009

Western Journalism

While much of the media and political establishment relegate presidential eligibility issues to the “fringe,” a congressman is trying to make his bill requiring future presidential candidates prove “natural born citizenship” a major campaign issue.

Posy’s campaign is making the eligibility bill a big issue

Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., recently dispatched a message to constituents and supporters asking for help in an effort to defeat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in the 2010 election.

He introduced the proposal saying, “I wrote to you not long ago asking that you stand behind me in defending our nation’s constitution. … My bill (H.R. 1503) that would require all candidates for president in the future to provide documentation (such as a birth certificate) to prove they are natural born citizens of the United States, has resulted in the national liberal left making me Target #1 for defeat in the 2010 congressional elections.

“As I said before,” he continued, “I’m being lambasted by the media and late-night comics and Nancy Pelosi’s team has already paid for tens of thousands of automated phone calls in my district and are raising a multi-million-dollar campaign war chest to defeat me.”

Sarah Palin weighs in on Climategate

Dec. 4, 2009

The American Thinker

C. Edmund Wright
There has been call among conservatives for Sarah Palin to weigh in on the climate gate scandal, and tonight she has.

Via her favorite forum for chiming in on the national conversation, Facebook, she has issued the following statement:

The president’s decision to attend the international climate conference in Copenhagen needs to be reconsidered in light of the unfolding Climategate scandal. The leaked e-mails involved in Climategate expose the unscientific behavior of leading climate scientists who deliberately destroyed records to block information requests, manipulated data to “hide the decline” in global temperatures, and conspired to silence the critics of man-made global warming. I support Senator James Inhofe’s call for a full investigation into this scandal. Because it involves many of the same personalities and entities behind the Copenhagen conference, Climategate calls into question many of the proposals being pushed there, including anything that would lead to a cap and tax plan.

Policy should be based on sound science, not snake oil. I took a stand against such snake oil science when I sued the federal government over its decision to list the polar bear as an endangered species despite the fact that the polar bear population has increased. I’ve never denied the reality of climate change; in fact, I was the first governor to create a subcabinet position to deal specifically with the issue. I saw the impact of changing weather patterns firsthand while serving as governor of our only Arctic state. But while we recognize the effects of changing water levels, erosion patterns, and glacial ice melt, we cannot primarily blame man’s activities for the earth’s cyclical weather changes. The drastic economic measures being pushed by dogmatic environmentalists won’t change the weather, but will dramatically change our economy for the worse.

Policy decisions require real science and real solutions, not junk science and doomsday scare tactics pushed by an environmental priesthood that capitalizes on the public’s worry and makes them feel that owning an SUV is a “sin” against the planet. In his inaugural address, President Obama declared his intention to “restore science to its rightful place.” Boycotting Copenhagen while this scandal is thoroughly investigated would send a strong message that the United States government will not be a party to fraudulent scientific practices. Saying no to Copenhagen and cap and tax are first steps in “restoring science to its rightful place.”

– Sarah Palin

What is particularly effective is her use of Barack Obama’s words against him. Twice she recites the “restore science to its rightful place” phrase, including her final sentence challenge. She also backs up her own credibility on the subject with practical experience she had as governor of the nation’s only glacial state. Unwritten is the fact that Obama was merely a community organizer at that time.

Some would have liked something from Palin a bit sooner on this subject, but in light of the Copenhagen announcement, this timing is effective. Perhaps the Jurassic media will notice that she is once again tackling a serious subject with facts and linear thinking. A subject, in fact, dominated by unserious science for decades.
