Is the BC issue real? Is it a set up? Why will Obama not just sign a release for Hawaii to send it to various networks?

Sadly, lol. It was a scary statement. What kind of Executive order could he do that would take Rush off the air?

Dunno about hussein and where he was born BUT

Rush better be looking for a good Short-Wave radio station or an offshore island to set one up because hussein can, is planning, and will control speech over the air-waves:

Ensure the Full and Free Exchange of Ideas through an Open Internet and DIVERSE Media Outlets

Encourage Diversity in Media Ownership: Encourage diversity in the ownership of broadcast media, promote the development of new media outlets for expression of diverse viewpoints, and clarify the public interest obligations of broadcasters who occupy the nation’s spectrum.

Maybe shutting down the radio station under some obscure rule hidden in the Patriot Act.

If Rush is afraid of being shut down we are in deep, deep trouble. The clash of the titans is coming soon.

What would we do if suddenly Rush is off the air, whether we like him or not. Maybe its time to think of Plan B. Im sure this would never happen but I didnt think Obama would have his first interview with Al-aribiya and call the US too dominate either.

Rush didn’t say anything about the BC... He did use the word usurper today twice.

I wouldn’t worry about him being closed down... I listen to him via my I-Phone anyway.... sometimes on the Internet... Never on the radio.... so if they try to shut him down, just go to the Internet.

If the “Fairness” Doctrine were imposed AND the SCOTUS didn’t strike it down, expect to see opinion-oriented radio shows migrate to web- and satellite-based models.

Sure, it’ll do some damage in the short term, but in the long run that’s where things probably are headed anyway. Obama simply would have pushed the technology, in the sense that some (not all, but many) listeners will then say, “OK, now I’m going to get my car rigged for satellite/ internet ‘radio,’” many years sooner than they otherwise would have.

Thanks, Obama!

Has he really spent anything? The most he has done is his lawyers file a couple of motions to dismiss, something done on a standard retainer service. The lawyers fighting the cases for the most part have nothing to do with Bambi, they are from various states or are lawyers for the electors named in the suits.

Dude, the BC is a nonissue. It is only an issue with a tiny portion of a tiny fringe of people who thought it could be an out. BC fanatics are fanatics, hopers and dreamers. There is no BC issue. Get it????? Rush and others would be proclaimed certifiable and rightly so. I repeat it is a nonissue. You are nuts.

Wouldn’t need an EO. All he has to do is name Rush an enemy combatant and he can hold him in a South Carolina brig for years.

The BC issue is a NONISSUE.

Get over it already

Since the Messiah has been inaugurated, there is nothing that can be done.

Remember, it would take Congressional action via impeachment now for the BC issue to "remove" NoBama...

...do you really think the Dems would allow that to happen?

Find something else...something with teeth...something that matters....

How is that 20 million calculated?...... Is that 20 million different listeners in a week? Or maybe 4 to 5 million listening in multiple times each week?

It would only be dead if Obama killed it. Obama refused to kill it which is something he could have easily have done. There must be some reason why it is out there.

Why not release the BC to the courts and end the speculation?

If Art Bell could reach the world from the back room of his trailer on a hill in Nevada, then Rush can figure out SOMETHING from his compound in FL.

I almost think its a dare:
‘GO ahead - take your best shot.’

Perhaps he hopes that the Dems get too cocky and walk into the thresher...

Obama’s Intelligence Adviser Involved in Security Breach (”cauterized” O’s passport info)

Obama’s Intelligence Adviser Involved in Security Breach

Monday, January 12, 2009 1:46 PM

Obama’s top terrorism and intelligence adviser, John O. Brennan, heads a firm that was cited in March for breaching sensitive files in the State Department’s passport office, according to a State Department Inspector General’s report released this past July.

The security breach, first reported by the Washington Times and later confirmed by State Department spokesman Sean McCormack, involved a contract employee of Brennan’s firm, The Analysis Corp., which has earned millions of dollars providing intelligence-related consulting services to federal agencies and private companies.

During a State Department briefing on March 21, 2008, McCormack confirmed that the contractor had accessed the passport files of presidential candidates Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and John McCain, and that the inspector general had launched an investigation.

Sources who tracked the investigation tell Newsmax that the main target of the breach was the Obama passport file, and that the contractor accessed the file in order to “cauterize” the records of potentially embarrassing information.

“They looked at the McCain and Clinton files as well to create confusion,” one knowledgeable source told Newsmax. “But this was basically an attempt to cauterize the Obama file.”

At the time of the breach, Brennan was working as an unpaid adviser to the Obama campaign.

“This individual’s actions were taken without the knowledge or direction of anyone at The Analysis Corp. and are wholly inconsistent with our professional and ethical standards,” Brennan’s company said in a statement sent to reporters after the passport breach was made public.

Obama part of group locked up at Russian airport // U.S. delegation stripped of passports as guards demand to inspect plane
Chicago Sun-Times (IL) - Monday, August 29, 2005
Author: Lynn Sweet, Sun-Times Washington Bureau chi

WASHINGTON — Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) were not allowed to leave a Russian airport Sunday and were locked in a room briefly.

The incident prevented their departure for about three hours, but Obama told the Sun-Times “it ended up not being a very big deal.”

The senators had their passports seized by local officials at an airport in Perm. Obama said the officials demanded, unsuccessfully, to inspect the DC-9 military aircraft being used by the congressional delegation for the trip.

(snip)

Although he was on a first-time diplomatic mission, Obama has traveled extensively, spending part of his youth in Indonesia and visiting Kenya, where his father was born. He noted that as a back- packing college student he had “a lot less leverage than this time.”

Obama , a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, and Lugar, its chairman, left Wednesday for a trip to inspect sites where nuclear and biological weapons are slated to be destroyed in Russia, Ukraine and Azerbaijan. On Sunday, the U.S. group was scheduled to fly from Perm to Kiev, Ukraine. But border guards wanted proof that the group’s aircraft — which Obama said looked like a “mini-Air Force One” — was really an official U.S. government plane, which would be exempt from an inspection.

Robert Gibbs, Obama ‘s spokesman traveling with him, said in an e-mail that “the border guards took our passports and demanded to inspect our aircraft, which we refused. We were moved to a room to wait.”

“At one point they were demanding to inspect virtually everything, including the gifts their representatives at the missile facility had given us.” The border guard said “they were acting on the authority of the FSB,” the Russian intelligence agency.

It was a real struggle to get Rush back on after Hurricane Katrina. WWL kept dragging their feet for many months saying that they couldn’t bring him back even though they brought back all of their other shows and people were demanding Rush come back on a daily basis. It wasn’t until they started to lose advertisers that they relented.

It is an issue if enough states pass laws requiring that candidates show official long form Birth Certificates to be on the 2012 ballot.

That would make it a real interesting issue.
