FBI Director Robert Mueller says “this is the first I’ve heard of that incident” after Congressman King of Iowa asks him about Project Veritas video where Eric Holder’s ballot offered to young white Caucasian male.
Rep. Trent Franks, Rep. Steve King and Cleta Mitchell speak about Project Veritas Voter Fraud video before House Judiciary Committee. There were reports that Nadler and Rep. Conyers were stunned and surprised by the Holder video and asked their staffers what it was about.
“It hardly inspires the public confidence that a white 20-something can obtain the ballot of the first black Attorney General.” – Rep. Trent Franks
“I’m shocked that the Attorney General isn’t shocked. I’m shocked that the Attorney General hasn’t offered a response to this in a meaningful way… It took James O’Keefe to get this ACORN issue brought before America.” – Rep. Steve King

Bill Clinton was called our first “Black President,” so is Obama then America’s first Muslim President?
He’s not fooling this young Christian Black girl…
A picture is worth a thousand words!
This photo was not actually AT the White House, but, regardless of WHERE it was taken, the fact is that he cancelled the National Day of Prayer, said that we are no longer a Christian nation, and has no problem taking part in Muslim prayer.
Network host makes ‘common error’ about ‘natural born citizenship’
The issue arose this week when Baier posted online his explanation of “natural born citizen” and said that the issue is resolved by federal law. He pointed to 8 U.S. Code, Section 1401, contending all that is required is for the mother to be an American citizen who has lived in the U.S. for five years or more, at least two of these years after the age of 14.
The issue has been in the news since Barack Obama campaigned for president in 2008. Questions about his eligibility have yet to be resolved, as he’s continued to conceal many personal documents.
Via The Huffington Post: “An unexpected surge in support to place same-sex marriage on the Democratic Party platform at the August convention has energized LGBT advocates and complicated an already delicate situation facing President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign…”.* Should president Obama put gay marriage on the platform?
Should Obama Push Gay Marriage In 2012?
WASHINGTON — In a nod to a dramatic shift in public opinion, Barack Obama on Wednesday became the first sitting president to announce his support for same-sex marriage.
So you get how it goes. MSM was slobbering all over themselves and not a word on his flip-flopping in an election year. WAKE UP Liberals. Get a clue Democrats! It is all because of North Carolina passing the same-sex marriage ban. He all of a sudden no longer has his Christian views on marriage JUST one day after N.C. says NO! So he’s blatantly using the Gay Community. What I can’t figure out is why would he think he’d get more of the gay vote and that surpassing the religious right he has sorely offended by this? Oh, thats right I forget, he will be fixing this election & helping illegal aliens vote. ~ JP
May 10, 2012: FL investigating citizenship of thousands of voters
State looking into registered voters who may be in U.S. legally but are not citizens…
Values: The president’s coming out in favor of gay marriage shows he’s to the left of most black Americans — and willing to throw his most loyal backers under the gay pride float.
Under pressure to assuage the gay lobby and young voters ahead of November, Obama on Wednesday told ABC News “it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”
By finally taking the controversial stance, which won’t go over well in the black community, he’s clearly counting on African-American voters remaining loyal to him this election out of racial pride and a habit of voting Democrat.
But he may have miscalculated.
Gay marriage is highly unpopular among black voters — and he’ll need every one of them to beat presumptive GOP foe Mitt Romney.
Jay Sekulow appeared on Fox News speaking about Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s lawyer facing jail in Iran. Mohamad Ali Dadkhah, has been convicted for representing clients in human rights cases. He is the attorney for Pastor Youcef and recently represented 12 Christians in a separate case. Dadkhah previously told the ACLJ that if he himself was placed in jail, “no attorney would be willing” to take Nadarkhani’s case out of fear of “being imprisoned or disbarred” for representing the Christian pastor.
It is the first time he has been allowed to make a public statement in nearly a year and the first time the world has heard from him since his execution order was upheld.
Youcef’s spirit in the face of his persecution is remarkable. He writes, “[T]hough my trial due has been so long, and as in the flesh I wish these days to end, yet I have surrendered myself to God’s will.”
The letter, which he sent to Present Truth Ministries, goes on to thank everyone who has been working, speaking out and praying on his behalf, saying:
“I do believe that these kind of activities can be very helpful in order to reach freedom, and respecting the human rights in a right way can bring forth great results in this. I want to appreciate all those are trying to reach to this goal.”
Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has written an open letter to “all those who are concerned” with his plight thanking them and asking for prayer. The letter written earlier this week is the first time in nearly a year that Pastor Youcef has been able to speak out publicly about his illegal imprisonment in Iran. He encourages the members of his congregation and supporters all over the world that he is in “perfect health” and urges them to continue having faith in God.
A surprise attack before dawn on MAY 10, 1775, gave America one of its first victories of the Revolutionary War.
Just 3 weeks after Lexington and Concord, Ethan Allen led 83 Green Mountain Boys of Vermont to capture Fort Ticonderoga on Lake Champlain by overrunning it in the early morning while the British sentry was sleeping.
Fort Ticonderoga Reenactment:
Fort Ticonderoga, formerly Fort Carillon, is a large 18th-century fort built at a narrows near the south end of Lake Champlain in upstate New York in the United States. It was constructed by the French between 1754 and 1757 during the Seven Years’ War, often referred to as the French and Indian War in the USA, and was of strategic importance during the 18th-century colonial conflicts between Great Britain and France, and again to a lesser extent during the American Revolutionary War.During the 1758 Battle of Carillon, 4,000 French defenders were able to repel an attack by 16,000 British troops near the fort. In 1759, the British returned and drove a token French garrison from the fort merely by occupying high ground that threatened the fort. During the American Revolutionary War, the fort again saw action in May 1775 when the Green Mountain Boys and other state militia under the command of Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold captured it in a surprise attack. The Americans held it until June 1777, when British forces under General John Burgoyne again occupied high ground above the fort and threatened the Continental Army troops, leading them to withdraw from the fort and its surrounding defenses. The only direct attack on the fort took place in September 1777, when John Brown led 500 Americans in an unsuccessful attempt to capture the fort from about 100 British defenders.
The British abandoned the fort following the failure of the Saratoga campaign, and it ceased to be of military value after 1781. It fell into ruin, leading people to strip it of some of its usable stone, metal, and woodwork. It became a stop on tourist routes of the area in the 19th century. Its private owners restored the fort early in the 20th century. A foundation now operates the fort as a tourist attraction, museum, and research center.
Ethan Allen, whose statue is in the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall, demanded immediate surrender.
The bewildered British captain asked in whose name such a request was being made.
Ethan Allen hotly retorted:
“In the Name of the Great Jehovah and the Continental Congress.”
Fort Ticonderoga’s 50 cannons were incredibly moved by 25-year-old Colonel Henry Knox over 200 miles from New York across Vermont and New Hampshire to a hill overlooking Boston Harbor, forcing British ships to evacuate.
Three weeks after the capture of Fort Ticonderoga, Harvard President Samuel Langdon told the Massachusetts Provincial Congress, May 31, 1775:
“If God be for us, who can be against us?..May our land be purged from all its sins! Then the Lord will be our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble, and we will have no reason to be afraid, though thousands of enemies set themselves against us.”
Monumental is the story of America’s beginnings. Presented, produced, and starring Kirk Cameron, the 90-minute true story follows this father of six across Europe and the U.S. as he seeks to discover America’s true “national treasure” – the people, places, and principles that made America the freest, most prosperous and generous nation the world has ever known.
Monumental is heralded as “inspiring,” “beautifully executed,” “powerful,” and “one meant to teach.”
Long regarded as “the land of opportunity,” there’s no question the tiny band of religious outcasts who founded this country hit upon a formula for success that went way beyond what they could have imagined. How else can you explain the fact that they established a nation that has become the best example of civil, economic and religious liberty the world has ever known?
What formula did they discover? What motivated them to come here in the first place? More importantly, how can we apply these same foundational truths today?
I have posted what I like to call the Fast and Furious Posse. Issa, Chaffetz and Gowdy… Danged Dims making the need for the amendment!
~ Appreciation to Top Cop Darrell Issa:
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, goes on Fox News’ Happening Now to discuss the latest on the investigation of the Justice Department’s failed Operation Fast and Furious.
~ Applause for Jason Chaffetz:
I want to quote President Obama in his first remarks as President of the United States. He said, quote, “Transparency in the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency. I also hold myself as President to a new standard of openness. But the mere fact that you have the legal power to keep something secret does not mean you should always use it. The Freedom of Information Act is perhaps the most powerful instrument we have in making our government honest and transparent, and holding it accountable, and I expect members of my administration, not simply to live up to the letter, but also the spirit of the law.
The government should not keep information confidential merely because public officials might be embarrassed by disclosure, because errors and failures might be revealed or because of speculative or abstract fears,” end quote. This country should be embarrassed by what’s happening in fast and furious. My challenge to members on both sides of the aisle is to stand up and have the integrity to say that we have a dead U.S. agent; we have a department of justice that lied to congress. Where are the guts in this body to stand up and say, “we’re not going to put up with that.”
We’re going to demand these documents be provided to the congress.
We know because the inspector general within the Department of Justice has said they have 80,000 documents, they’ve given congress about 7,000 of those documents.
This is the test of principle, this is the test of integrity, and when you can’t stand up and take on your own party, that’s a lack of guts. This congress has got to stand up for itself, and demand that these documents be released. I would encourage members on both sides of the aisle, at the very least, vote for this amendment. I can’t imagine any reason why anybody would deny the passage of this amendment.
We’re not going to allow taxpayer dollars to be used to lie to congress, unfortunately we have been lied to. That’s the reason why we have to do this amendment. It’s embarrassing that you have to even get to this point, but, madam chair, Brian Terry’s family expected the integrity of — expected, the integrity of this body demands and we cannot rest until we get to the bottom of that, regardless whether it’s republican or democrat.
You can make the case that part of this started with President Bush, we don’t know what’s in these documents, but the separation of powers, it’s imperative that we get to the bottom of this and that we hold people accountable. Not just the lowest level of people down at the A.T.F., they’ve been dismissed, they’ve been harassed, and thank goodness for those whistleblowers who stood up and did the right thing. But the senior level, the senior people in the department of justice, they have not been held accountable.
President Obama said in these remarks that he would. March 5, he went on Univision and promised that they would. It has not happened, and if we get stonewalling on the other side of the aisle, without your support, we will do a disservice to this country, we will do a disservice to this body and we will not get to the truth, and I promise you, when that becomes a republican president, I will stand with you and demand the openness and transparency that this body deserves.
I’ve done it; I’ve challenged my own party, I have the guts, I have the fortitude to do the right thing. I urge passage of this amendment. I appreciate Chairman Issa, Representative Gowdy, Mr. Gosar, Mr. Farenthold, there’s so many people in this body. I appreciate my colleagues from South Carolina who are passionate about this issue. I encourage all members to vote in favor of this amendment and I yield back the balance of my time.”

House Cuts Holder Justice Dept Salaries for Fast & Furious Stonewalling
~ Kudos to Trey Gowdy:
In response to more than a year of Justice Department stonewalling Congress and the American people on Operation Fast and Furious, the U.S. House of Representatives today passed by voice vote an amendment cutting Justice Department salaries until they fully answer questions on the failed gunwalking program. Oversight Committee member Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC-4) sponsored the amendment, which cuts $1,000,000 from the Justice Department’s General Administration fund and is part of the FY 2013 DoJ Appropriation.
We need to thank these honorable Reps! They have been forced to overwork with this DOJ & administration. Let them hear your appreciation! ~ JP
PHOENIX – Federal authorities said Wednesday they plan to sue an Arizona county sheriff and his office over allegations of civil rights violations, including the racial profiling of Hispanics.
The U.S. Justice Department has been seeking an agreement requiring sheriff Joe Arpaio office to train officers in how to make constitutional traffic stops, collect data on people arrested in traffic stops and reach out to Hispanics to assure them that the department is there to also protect them.
The “notice of intent to file civil action” came Wednesday from Assistant U.S. Attorney General Thomas Perez in a letter to an Arpaio lawyer.
At a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Arpaio defended himself in the face of the pending lawsuit.
“If they sue, we’ll go to court. And then we’ll find out the real story,” he said. “There’s lots of miscommunication emanating from Washington. They broke off communications.
“They’re telling me how to run my organization. I’d like to get this resolved, but I’m not going to give up my authority to the federal government. It’s as simple as that,” Arpaio added.
The self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America has been a national political fixture who has built his reputation on jailing inmates in tents and dressing them in pink underwear, selling himself to voters as unceasingly tough on crime and pushing the bounds of how far local police can go to confront illegal immigration.
