If all else fails, Will Obama Steal the 2012 Election? By Jeffrey T. Kuhner – The Washington Times:

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. claims Jim Crow is returning. In a recent speech, Mr. Holder said that attempts by states to pass voter identification laws will disenfranchise minorities, rolling back the clock to the evil days of segregation. He said that a growing number of minorities fear that “the same disparities, divisions and problems” now afflict America as they did in 1965 prior to the Voting Rights Act. According to the Obama administration, our democracy is being threatened by racist Republicans. Hence, the Justice Department must prevent laws requiring a photo ID to vote from being enacted.

Mr. Holder argues that voter ID laws disproportionately discriminate against poor blacks and Hispanics – citizens who cannot afford to acquire a driver’s license, passport or other form of photo identification. The latest victim is South Carolina; its voter ID law has been blocked by the Justice Department. Liberal Democrats – taking their cue from the White House – are portraying the national movement for election reform as an authoritarian assault upon civil liberties. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has even petitioned the United Nations, asking it to declare states’ voter ID laws human rights abuses. For the radical left, America has become Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

This would be comical if the consequences were not so serious. South Carolina’s legislation provides for free ID cards to be given to anyone who needs it. Not one person – white, black or brown – is discriminated against or discouraged from casting a vote at the ballot box. Moreover, the Supreme Court already has ruled on the issue – upholding state voter ID laws. In the 2008 Crawford v. Marion County Election Board decision, the high court held that an Indiana law mandating photo identification at the voting booth was indeed constitutional. If it is good enough for the Supreme Court and the overwhelming majority of the states, then it should be for Mr. Holder as well.

The old bit of political wisdom is that there are three tickets out of Iowa. And it just isn’t true.

Six candidates are going to press on. But one is out for sure.

Mitt Romney will finish in the top three. He has the most money, and leads polls in Iowa and nationally. He survives.

Ron Paul will finish in the top three in Iowa- he has a lot of cash on hand and a good organization in New Hampshire. He’d have a reason to fight on even if he underperforms because his candidacy is also a protest.

Rick Santorum will vastly outperform what was expected of his campaign even two weeks ago. He has no money, but he’s not going to bow out the moment he takes center stage.

Rick Perry has too much money to quit. Unless he finished in last place, expect him to make a perfunctory stop in New Hampshire before camping out in South Carolina and hoping that an anti-Mormon surge powers him back into the discussion.

Jon Huntsman is likely to get 1 percent or less tonight. But he wasn’t competing in Iowa. If he doesn’t finish in the top two in New Hampshire, he’ll drop out next week.

Newt Gingrich has already resolved to press on even while taking a bad loss tonight. He’ll try to do the same thing Perry does – hope Romney makes a dramatic mistake or runs into a wall of anti-Mormonism in the South.

But Michelle Bachmann will almost certainly drop out before New Hampshire. She won the Iowa Straw Poll in the summer and hasn’t stopped dropping since. Her staff has been abandoning her for Ron Paul. She has been desperately trying to claim that Ron Paul wants to “wipe Israel off the face of the earth.” The end is near.

~ Being technologically challenged I have to ask couldn’t the U.S. or some other foreign entity shoot this satellite down?

The German hacker group Chaos Computer Club recently held a conference in Berlin — the Chaos Communication Congress – where they proposed launching their own satellites into space as way to ensure freedom of the Internet. As a longer term goal, they also seek to put the first hacker on the moon.

BBC reports Hackerspace Global Grid (HGG) was proposed partially in response to the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) being discussed in the United States. The proposed SOPA would protect against copyright infringement and is supported by those in Hollywood and in the music industry, but others like Google, Facebook, Twitter and Wikipedia think the legislation could lead to Internet censorship. It has even been considered by these big names and many others, if SOPA passes, to go dark as a “nuclear option” to get their point across.

The hacker activist Nick Farr started soliciting donors and participants for the project back in August. I was due to a number of proposed laws which will censor the internet that caused him to start the project.

Mr Farr was quoted as saying “The first goal is an uncensorable internet in space. Let’s take the internet out of the control of terrestrial entities”

The group says it wants to have a prototype to show the world at next years conventions, let’s see if they can do it.

It would appear that the DNC has me confused with George Soros. I don’t know why this would be. For one thing, he was born in Hungary and I was born in Chicago, so we sound nothing alike. For another thing, he has a full head of hair and I only have a cute little fringe around my ears. He’s a billionaire and I am only just getting by. And, finally, I am sane and he’s as crazy as a proverbial bedbug.

But obviously something has gone haywire at Ground Zero of the loony Left. During the past week or so, Frank Lautenberg, Jason Rosenbaum, Dick Durbin and Ted Kennedy’s dipstick son, Patrick, have all sent me messages, urging me to donate money to help them defeat the GOP.

If I failed to kick in, the following are just a few of the dire scenarios they warned me would more than likely take place: The Republicans would dismantle ObamaCare; prevent the re-election of such party stalwarts as Elizabeth Warren and Tim Kaine; take control of the U.S. Senate; and, egad, prevent the Democrats from excising the 2nd Amendment from the Constitution!

As amusing as I found the notion that I would donate even a farthing to the Party of Obama, Pelosi and Reid, the frightening thing is that there are millions of Americans, people who actually get to vote, work in the media and teach in our schools, who receive the same requests and immediately sit down and write a check.

What is going through their minds? Who are these blockheads who, even in this miserable economy, are willing to spend their hard-earned dollars to help the current administration shove ObamaCare down our throats and disarm law-abiding citizens?

Perhaps the topper is that these people are so desperate that they even stooped to using Patrick Kennedy as one of their shills. Even though you would have to be a member of the Kennedy clan in order to state “My father and uncles fought to build a society that takes care of the least among us,” how pathetic that the Party would utilize a schmuck who has been addicted to cocaine, booze and prescription drugs, for most of his adult life; would have been in jail several times for drunk driving and assault if the Kennedy money and influence hadn’t been at his beck and call; and even been asked to refrain from taking Holy Communion by his bishop because of his pro-abortion stance as a congressman. This lump has also been known to brag that he’s never worked a day in his life. I guess in that family the fruit doesn’t fall too far from the tree.

~ I mean he would have to be from another planet to even mouth these words. Yes, Obama exalted himself and MSM protected him by cutting the bragging. He says ‘legislate’ but him and his entire administration are about Regulate! He had his usual audacity in saying he is better except for Johnson, FDR and Lincoln. OMG! File this under his number one arrogant interview.

Here we go AGAIN. Remember this? I went back to find the post on this and guess what? The original video had been removed.

But here is the Deja DuDu:

Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama

Song 2:

Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say “hooray!”

Hooray, Mr. President! You’re number one!
The first black American to lead this great nation!

Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
To make this country’s economy number one again!

Hooray Mr. President, we’re really proud of you!
And we stand for all Americans under the great Red, White, and Blue!

So continue —- Mr. President we know you’ll do the trick
So here’s a hearty hip-hooray —-

Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip hooray!

Yes, Obama exhalted himself and MSM protected him by cutting the bragging. JUST see what Newsbusters has exposed. Why did they cut it? His own words would kill his reelection chances. WHY are there NOT more media reporting on this?!

Thank goodness someone had the wherewithal to record it. We need to with MSM and Obama. Thanks to Robert Kraft:

Now we have even more indoctrination. Zip has uncovered a jaw-dropping incident at Woodbrook Elementary School in Virginia in which third-grade students performed (and school officials claim wrote) a song titled, “Part of the 99” as part of a “Kid Pan Alley” performance in October.

WZ makes a cameo at the 44 second mark:

From CBS 19 News

Yes, they’re actually claiming third-grade children wrote these lyrics and chose the topic as well. Because what eight-year-old child isn’t obsessed with class warfare?

~ What I discovered is Kid Pan Alley brings professional songwriters together with children

Their very own bio:

Paul Reisler, songwriter, composer, master songwriting teacher and founder of Trapezoid, learned this during an elementary school songwriting residency project in rural Rappahannock County, VA. There, he co-wrote over 50 songs with all 600 children in the county.

In his own words:

“We guide the students through the songwriting process”Paul Reisler

Educated at George Washington University. I would like to know if he mastered in ‘Liberal Arts’ considering what he is teaching children. ~ JP

Here are lyrics to the song:

Some people have it all
But they still don’t think they have enough
They want more money
A faster ride
They’re not content
Never satisfied
Yes — they’re the 1 percent

I used to be one of the 1 percent
I worked all the time
Never saw my family
Couldn’t make life rhyme
Then the bubble burst
It really, really hurt
I lost my money
Lost my pride
Lost my home
Now I’m part of the 99

Some people have it all
But they still don’t think they have enough
They want more money
A faster ride
They’re not content
Never satisfied
Yes — they’re the 1 percent

I used to be sad, now I’m satisfied
’Cause I really have enough
Though I lost my yacht and plane
Didn’t need that extra stuff
Could have been much worse
You don’t need to be first
’Cause I’ve got my friends
Here by my side
Don’t need it all
I’m so happy to be part of the 99

They say Bloggers are not journalists. They are right. They are BETTER! When MSM covers for this president but Weasel Zippers has the intelligence to capture their lies, you tell me WHO is the better reporter?!

Big Kudos to you Zip and thank you for scouring the bowels of the internet! ~ JP

Iran Threatening the World

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran’s army chief has warned an American aircraft carrier not to return to the Persian Gulf.

Gen. Ataollah Salehi spoke as a 10-day Iranian naval exercise ended Tuesday. The drill near the strategic Strait of Hormuz was Iran’s latest show of strength in the face of mounting international criticism over its nuclear program.

The official IRNA news agency quoted Salehi as saying: “We recommend … to the American warship that passed through the Strait of Hormuz and went on to the Gulf of Oman, not to return to the Persian Gulf.”

Motives behind Salehi’s statement were not immediately clear.

The U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet has said that USS John C. Stennis and another vessel headed out from the Gulf and through the Strait of Hormuz last Tuesday, after a visit to Dubai’s Jebel Ali port.

The USS John C. Stennis is one of the U.S. navy’s largest vessels. Last week, it passed through the Strait of Hormuz traveling east across the Gulf of Oman in what the US Defense Department called a “routine” passage, AFP reported.

On Tuesday, Iran ended 10 days of military exercises at the entrance of the Persian Gulf. The exercises saw Iran test-fire three missiles designed to sink warships.

The U.S. keeps at least one aircraft carrier in or near the Gulf at all times, on rotations of weeks or months. It maintains the base of its Fifth Fleet in the Gulf state of Bahrain.

The U.S. has warned it will not tolerate a closure of the Strait of Hormuz. Iran has said it has no intention of closing the strait, but has carried out “mock” exercises on shutting it.

Earlier Tuesday, French foreign minister Alain Juppe said Iran was continuing to develop nuclear weapons and called for stronger sanctions against Tehran.

“Iran is pursuing the development of its nuclear arms, I have no doubt about it,” he told French television I-Tele. “The last report by the International Atomic Energy Agency is quite explicit on this point.”
