~WND By Jerome R. Corsi


An investigation by three Republican congressmen has revealed the Obama administration has secretly spent $23 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars in Kenya to fund a “Yes” vote on a constitutional referendum scheduled for Aug. 4 that would increase access to abortions in Kenya and establish legal status for Islamic law tribunals.

3 Republican congressmen reveal president secretly spent $23 million.Last week, in response to inquiries from Reps. Chris Smith, R-N.J., Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., and Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the U.S. Agency for International Development admitted to spending more than $23 million of U.S. taxpayer money to influence voters in Kenya to pass the highly contentious constitution.

Meanwhile, trusted sources in Kenya tell WND that the White House has used Vice President Joseph Biden’s trip to Kenya in June and the office of U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Michael E. Ranneberger to put out the message that passage of the referendum would enable the White House to open the floodgates to allow millions of dollars of additional U.S. government aid and private investment capital to flow into Kenya.

“Despite denials, the Obama administration’s funding to support passage of the controversial Kenyan proposed constitution is clear,” Jeff Sagnip, spokesman for Rep. Smith, told WND in an e-mail over the weekend. “It constitutes U.S. monetary interference in a sovereign nation’s voting process. If passed the constitution would dramatically alter existing pro-life laws.”

Sagnip pointed out that the proposed constitution would water down the existing abortion law. It would permit abortion when “in the opinion of a trained health professional, there is need for emergency treatment or the life or health of the mother is in danger, or if permitted by any other written law.” That language, Sagnip said, is “obviously vague” and riddled with “blatant loopholes.”

Islamic courts

The proposed constitution would also give legal status to what are known as “Kadhi Courts,” constituting an Islamic judicial structure within the overall structure of the Kenyan legal structure, to resolve disputes between Muslims under Shariah, or Islamic law.

Critics have charged that the constitutional provision to codify Kadhi Courts would violate the separation of state and religion by allowing Islamic law to have official legal status.

MUST finish–U.S. taxpayers support “Yes” vote

Immigrant ’sanctuaries’ rouse opponents’ wrath By David G. Savage – Los Angeles Times | Published 07/25/201

Reporting from Washington — Critics of the Obama administration’s decision to sue Arizona over its new law to control illegal immigration accuse the government of overlooking a more obvious target: the dozens of cities that called themselves a “sanctuary” for immigrants.

“Everyone has noticed the hypocrisy of the government going after Arizona and ignoring the sanctuary cities,” said Bob Dane, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform. “They have it exactly backwards. Arizona is applying federal law, and sanctuary cities are violating it.”

Justice Department lawyers on Thursday asked a judge in Phoenix to block Arizona’s law from going into effect on the grounds it interferes with federal immigration policy. The law is due to take effect in the coming week.

The Justice Department lawyers say the government wants to catch and deport criminal immigrants, but it does not wish to take custody of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who are otherwise abiding by the law.

Other Places Already Have Arizona Law by Harold Pease

If anyone wonders how the new Arizona illegal immigration law, coming on board July 29, will affect Arizona, they need only to look at Prince William County, Virginia. They have had virtually the same law in effect for three years. Commissioner Cory Stewart who spearheaded that law said, “We had some of the same problems Arizona did. We had so many illegal immigrants coming into the county causing trouble, causing crime, and exploding the number of English as a Second Language students in our school system. We passed a pretty strict measure in 2007 and it has had great results.”

Under their law, Stewart said police must check the immigration status of persons “for a small crime, shoplifting, DUI, being drunk in public-any of those crimes.” They are then taken to a magistrate who normally “holds them in jail pending trial, because they are illegal immigrants and obviously there is a high risk of flight. They serve their sentences and we hand them over to federal authorities for deportation.”

The benefits of the new law were immediate and clear. The county experienced a 38% reduction in violent crimes, in the number of uninsured illegals giving birth in hospitals, and in English as a Second Language enrollment. All of this resulted in a drastic taxpayer cut, and popularity of the law soon soared to 80%. The law has saved lives with the drop in violent crimes. Illegals tended to move on to other Virginia counties, thus increasing their problems. As a result, and in spite of the fact that they initially ridiculed the new law, Fairfax county, and Montgomery County, MD soon implemented the same law as Prince William county.

When asked how many lawsuits were filed against the police or county by citizens claiming discrimination after the law went into effect, the answer was none. “There has not been one substantiated claim of racial profiling,” Stewart argued.

Of some note is the lack of national attention when a county was enforcing federal law, largely neglected by the Feds. It has also not been of particular interest to the Media. But when Arizona wanted to put an end to the violence spilling over the border (Phoenix is now the kidnapping capitol of North America) all hell turned on them. Now the Federal Government, who is supposed to protect the states, is suing its own state because the state is doing the job the government is constitutionally required to do.

In response to this suit, thousands of small contributors are sending money to support Arizona. Most contributors are retirees who cannot believe in their country’s unwillingness to defend it’s citizens. This money is coming from every state in the Union, and thus far amounts to over a half a million dollars- pocket change to the lobbying groups defending the President’s suit. The Feds are seen as the national bully and are not likely to merit well in the PR game as they pick on a state that is finally willing to stand up to them- even with a favorable (virtually managed) establishment press.

Unfortunately should the Federal Government be victorious in making the Arizona law null and void it will do so for Prince William, Fairfax, and Montgomery counties as well. This will return additional crime and taxes to places that some time ago greatly reduced these problems.

It will also leave us all much less defended, as no other state will dare to protect it’s citizens again.

The video starts out with some content from obamasnippets.com, which, of course is contrived.

And yet, there seems to be a synthetic truth about what the president says. Is he “natural born” according to the Constitution? No.

The requirement is that BOTH parents need to be U. S. Citizens. Two U. S. Citizen parents produce a “natural born” citizen. It’s likely that Mr. Obama was REGISTERED in Hawaii, therefore he has a COLB from Hawaii.

The truth may well be he was born in Kenya; that is where we believe his “long-form” birth certificate was issued. Nevertheless, “natural born” indicates, and speaks to the fact that BOTH parents have to be U. S. Citizens. His father WAS NEVER a U. S. Citizen, therefore, Barack Hussein Obama is NOT a “natural born” Citizen of the United States,

thus he is in violation of Amendment 14, and Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5 of the United States Constitution.

~WND The following report is excerpted from Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert

Democrats have found yet another way to circumvent the U.S. Constitution: Bypass the Electoral College and elect a president by popular vote without first passing an amendment to the founding document

The Massachusetts Senate has joined five other states in passing a National Popular Vote bill to do just that. It approved the legislation July 15 by a margin of 28-10.

http://www.every-vote-equal.com/

EVERY VOTE EQUAL

READ or DOWNLOAD this book FREE EVERY VOTE EQUAL:A State-Based Plan For Electing The President By National Popular Vote


The National Popular Vote, which already passed the Massachusetts House, is within one final “enactment vote” in the Massachusetts Senate before the measure can be ready for the governor’s signature, the Boston Globe reported.

“Under the proposed law, all 12 of the state’s electoral votes would be awarded to the candidate who receives the most votes nationally,” according to the report.

“The idea is that Massachusetts will instruct its electors in the Electoral College to vote for the candidate receiving the majority of presidential election votes nationally, regardless of how the state’s own voters cast their ballots,” Corsi explained.

The Massachusetts National Popular Vote bill, if signed into law by Gov. Deval Patrick, will not go into effect until states possessing a majority of Electoral College votes pass similar legislation.

The movement is popularly characterized as “One Person, One Vote for President,” a slogan designed to suggest the Electoral College method of counting presidential votes is “unfair” under a 14th Amendment “One Vote, One Person” definition of voter rights.

Critics fear the movement, if successful, could turn the entire nation into a potential “Florida 2000″ battleground in close elections.

“Even in states where a candidate lost by a huge margin, every vote would need to be examined, a catastrophic, costly scenario,” John Cork wrote in the New York Times.

“It would become possible, in a three-party race, for a candidate to fail to win even a single state but take the popular vote,” he continued. “Do we really want to create a system where New York electoral votes could be determined by voters in Utah or Alaska?”

Corsi argues that a national movement to pass National Popular Vote legislation in the state legislatures has been motivated by Democrats who remain fixated on the idea that George W. Bush “stole” the 2000 presidential election, supposedly by relying on a Supreme Court decision to get Florida’s electoral votes. They say the decision denied Al Gore the presidency, even though Gore got the majority of popular votes cast throughout the United States.

Once enough states possessing a majority of the electoral votes (270 of the 538 electors nationally) have enacted similar laws, the presidential candidate winning the most votes nationally would be assured a majority of the Electoral College votes, regardless of how other states vote or how their electors are distributed.

Illinois, New Jersey, Hawaii, Maryland and Washington have already adopted national popular vote bills.

These states add up to 61 electoral votes, 23 percent of the 270 electoral votes needed to activate the legislation: Illinois, 20 electoral votes; New Jersey, 15 votes; Hawaii, 4 votes; Maryland, 10 votes and Washington State, 11 votes.

The bill has passed 30 legislative chambers in 20 states, Corsi wrote. The National Popular Vote movement is already one-fourth of the way to accomplishing its goal.

“If the National Public Vote movement succeeds,” he added, “the president might be chosen by the popular vote winner in 10 or 11 of the most populous states.”

Minister King Samir Shabazz ~RACIST Extraordinaire

I’m a warrior trained by Khalid Muhammad

Demolitionist, breaking down the walls of the rotten
Never hit and miss
So, first time, take out your target

—Minister King Samir Shabazz, leader of the New Black Panther Party



Patriots understand the threat posed by the New Black Panthers and ACORN and other Democratic Party-protected groups. As the mid-term elections approach, these thugs will become ever more aggressive. Remember that Barack Obama’s marching orders were for them to get in the faces of his opponents and to bring a gun. Where can all this be headed?

In 1935, at a time when many intellectuals viewed fascism as a progressive movement, Sinclair Lewis wrote a novel that envisioned a political tragedy akin to the Obama presidency. It Can’t Happen Here is the story of Berzelius Windrip, a charming, charismatic demagogue who, in the midst of an economic crisis, is elected president by promising lots of free goodies for everyone.

* June 14, 2008, Obama: ‘If They Bring a Knife to the Fight, We Bring a Gun’

Once in power, he ruins the economy, neutralizes Congress and cracks down on dissent. He makes himself dictator, with assistance from a civilian national security force. Berzelius Windrip… mmm mmm mmm!

~Daily Caller

The Daily Caller, one of the fastest-growing online media properties, announced today its acquisition of KeithOlbermann.com, expanding the company’s global reach into a new segment of the online political market. For more than six months The Daily Caller has been a recognized market leader in commentary about Keith Olbermann. Ruth Graham’s weekly Olbermann wrap-up, “We watch, because we’re paid to,” appears on The Daily Caller’s website each Friday.

“We plan to make The Daily Caller the one-stop online shop for Keith Olbermann commentary,” said Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson. “We will be THE Keith Olbermann superstore.”

“This is part of our long-term growth strategy,” added Publisher and CEO Neil Patel. “Our future acquisition targets include several other annoying cable news commentators.”


Olbermann, the host of a low-rated nightly show on MSNBC, attacked The Daily Caller last week on Twitter. “Daily Caller has never known what Daily Caller is talking about,” he wrote.

I ate ALL the Crackerjacks

The former ESPN sportscaster is no stranger to controversy. Right-wing personality and Cornell alumnus Ann Coulter accused Olbermann, who also claims to be a Cornell graduate, of never having graduated from the Ivy League institution. “He always forgets to mention that he went to the school that offers classes in milking and bovine management,” wrote Coulter in a 2009 column.

“Olbermann’s incessant lying about having an ‘Ivy League education’ when he went to the non-Ivy League ag school at Cornell would be like a graduate of the Yale locksmithing school boasting about being a ‘Yale man,’” Coulter continued.

WATCH: ORIGINAL .COM DOMAIN NAMES

~The Daily Caller grabs Olbermann domain name By Michael Calderone –UPSHOT (Yahoo News)

Tucker Carlson says he’s going to start using a new email address: Keith@KeithOlbermann.com.

Carlson, a conservative pundit and editor-in-chief of the Daily Caller site, was in good spirits Thursday after acquiring the domain name of his former MSNBC colleague, liberal host Keith Olbermann.

“I woke up this morning with a smile on my face,” Carlson told the Upshot.

Clearly, Carlson’s pleased with the purchase, and his site’s trumpeting the news on its homepage. So what does Olbermann think?

Olbermann responded: “I hope whoever sold it to them got cash.”

Presumably Carlson will use the website as a forum for scrutinizing and mocking the liberal cable news host’s coverage.

NOTE: Olbermann responds further on Twitter: “Also regarding @TheDailyCaller and KeithOlbermann.com – the law’s pretty clear on this, so, nice waste of money, Tuckie.”

A * PF * Find…

~The Independent (UK) By Matt Williams, Press Association Sunday, 25 July 2010

Embattled BP chief executive Tony Hayward is negotiating his exit package with an announcement on his future expected in the coming 24 hours, it was reported today.

The Press Association learned that the BP board will meet tomorrow ahead of Tuesday’s release of the oil giant’s latest interim results.

Meanwhile the BBC has claimed that Mr Hayward is currently in talks over a compensation deal, with the outcome likely to be settled and made public by the close of tomorrow.

Bad But NOT Alone...

A spokesman for BP maintained that the chief executive continued to have the “full support of the board and senior management” and that the company would not comment on “speculation”.

The massive compensation and clean-up costs associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill is likely to have plunged BP into the red for the first time since 1992, quarterly results are expected to show on Tuesday.

Tomorrow’s board meeting would have taken place as a matter of course, sources have said.

But it has nonetheless led to speculation that it will prove the catalyst to any announcement regarding Mr Hayward’s exit.

The chief executive – a BP employee for 28 years – has been repeatedly singled out for attack over his handling of the Gulf of Mexico disaster.

Last month he faced a barrage of criticism in front of a fired-up Senate committee in Washington.

During a lengthy grilling with US politicians he was accused of presiding over “astonishing” corporate complacency.

It will be announced in the coming days if Mr Hayward is to face a second bruising encounter on Capitol Hill.

The US Senate foreign relations committee want him to answer questions over BP’s alleged role in the release of Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi

A BP spokesman said yesterday that the firm “will respond” to requests from the committee and “will offer someone”, but has not said who.

Many are now tipping Robert Dudley – the man who replaced Mr Hayward overseeing day-to-day operations in the Gulf – as his likely successor.

Amongst all the gloom for BP, there was better news today regarding the actual clean-up operation.

A tropical storm that forced relief workers to evacuate the site on Friday fizzled out, allowing ships to begin returning.

Engineers are now hoping that clear weather will last long enough for them to finish their work on the relief wells.

Mud and cement will then be pumped into the broken well through the relief tunnels in a bid to permanently seal the outlet.

It is hoped that the operation could be completed by mid-August.

But that plan could be further disrupted by poor weather. The hurricane season is set to last until November 30.

Thomson prison in rural western Illinois

Gitmo was a rallying cry during the presidential election, but now that is representative of the failure that is Barack Hussein Obama, it barely registers as newsworthy. Such a massive, yet predicted, failure isn’t exactly what Democrats want discussed leading into mid-term elections however.

Regardless, Obama is moving forward with using your taxpayer dollars to buy an Illinois prison to house the worst terrorists held at Gitmo – terrorists that Obama himself believes will be held indefinitely (link below). Where would these Islamic terrorists be held indefinitely once Gitmo is closed? How about an unused prison in Illinois purchased by the government (i.e., the people).

Moreover, once held on the U.S. mainland, where will Gitmo’s worst terrorists be freed when left-leaning czars, appointees, and SCOTUS nominees decide the time is right? Read it all via White House moves ahead on Illinois prison purchase – MiamiHerald.com.

White House moves ahead on Illinois prison purchase–BY CHRISTI PARSONS Chicago Tribune

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration will purchase the Thomson prison in rural western Illinois even if Congress doesn’t approve the president’s plan to lock up terror suspects there, a key official at the Justice Department said Monday.

Lawmakers are threatening to scotch Obama’s proposal to move terror detainees to the unused state prison, a critical part of his plan to shut down the Guantánamo Bay detention center in Cuba.

Even if lawmakers make good on that threat, a letter from the Justice Department suggests, the federal government will simply use the facility to hold federal inmates.

Writing to members of the Illinois delegation in Congress, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich reaffirmed the administration’s “commitment to acquiring the facility this year,” and provided details about steps planned for the next few months.

The Justice Department’s Bureau of Prisons plans to hire and train employees while other administration officials “work with Congress to obtain authorization and funding for a portion of the Thomson facility,” Weich wrote in the letter, obtained by the Tribune Washington Bureau.
