    Youtube user Bigone5555J found a photo of one of the Birth Certificates given to Obama's attorneys by the Hawaii Department of Health on April 25, 2011. You might recall that after Obama released his long form in a Pdf for the public to download on April 27, 2011, NBC's Savannah Guthrie boasted she was allowed to look at and feel the seal on Obama's Birth Certificate and reported that it said Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. She also took a picture of it and posted that photo on site called Lockerz.com. The photo she took can be seen here:...
  • Solyndra lawsuit: Full refund to taxpayers

    Many Americans were upset when solar-panel maker Solyndra filed for bankruptcy last September owing taxpayers more than $500 million, but retiree Robert Grady Jr. was different. The more he read about the failed company, the more irritated he became. Finally, weeks after the bankruptcy case began, Mr. Grady did something he’d never done before. He filed a claim in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. It turned out to be the biggest single claim in the case — $535 million — but it wasn’t on behalf of himself. Rather, Mr. Grady, 57, made the claim on behalf of U.S. taxpayers because he said...

Since then it’s been all campaign events and softball questions from media lapdogs Obama found time to do multiple radio interviews, discuss Nicky Minaj, Hip Hop music and the Buccaneers.

Fact: When “Pimp with the Limp” DJ Laz talks NFL with the President of the United States, we’re listening.

    The Democratic National Convention’s final night included a stirring tribute to America’s veterans from a retired naval four-star admiral, complete with a backdrop of jets flying over a row of proud warships. But convention organizers may soon regret it. Norman Polmar, author of “The Naval Institute Guide to the Soviet Navy” and other military handbooks, told the Navy Times on Tuesday that the ships were Russian vessels. “The ships are definitely Russian,” Polmar told the military newspaper. “There’s no question of that in my mind.” The ships depicted in the Democrats’ backdrop had radar designs that the U.S. fleet doesn’t...

    Leader of the free world only cares about campaigningPresident Obama has a one-man job agenda, instead of a national jobs agenda. Getting himself re-elected has become his full-time occupation. While all incumbents necessarily devote a portion of their time to campaigning and fundraising, Mr. Obama has ceased to keep up with the basic functions of the office. Meanwhile, the nation plummets further into debt. On Tuesday, Moody’s Investor Service warned it would downgrade America’s credit rating unless Washington comes up with specific policies to reduce the ratio of federal debt to gross domestic product.

The information Birkenfeld revealed detailed the inner workings of the secretive private wealth management division of the Swiss bank UBS (UBS), where the American-born Birkenfeld helped his US clients evade taxes by hiding wealth overseas. At one point during his private banking career, Birkenfeld reportedly brought diamonds across the US border secured inside a toothpaste tube.

    Wendy Rosen, the Democratic challenger to Republican Rep.

It was unclear, however, whether she could remove her name from the ballot with the election less than two months away. Under state law, a candidate has until 70 days before an election to remove his or her name from the ballot. The deadline for the Nov. 6 election passed on Aug. 28. Snip Republicans, meanwhile, said the allegations prove that voter fraud is...

    Does anyone remember the American Jobs Act? A year ago President Obama proposed boosting the economy with a combination of tax cuts and spending increases, aimed in particular at sustaining state and local government employment. Independent analysts reacted favorably. For example, the consulting firm Macroeconomic Advisers estimated that the act would add 1.3 million jobs by the end of 2012. There were good reasons for these positive assessments. Although you’d never know it from political debate, worldwide experience since the financial crisis struck in 2008 has overwhelmingly confirmed the proposition that fiscal policy “works,” that temporary increases in spending boost...

    The Democrats have decided to run in 2012 as the bailout party. It is an odd choice — the 2008–09 bailouts were deeply unpopular among the general public, and even their backers were notably conflicted about the precedent being set and the ensuing moral hazard. But Democrats have nonetheless made one of the most abusive episodes in the entire bailout era their economic cornerstone: the government takeover of General Motors. The GM bailout was always an odd duck: The Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) was created in order to preserve liquidity in the financial markets by heading off the collapse...

Wikipedia has an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)." "The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology.

The second was aimed at making marijuana use legal for people suffering from chronic pain and debilitating illnesses.

    Regardless of whether the unemployment rate rises or falls on Friday when new monthly figures are released, the White House will continue to make the same pitch to voters: the economy is moving in the right direction. “If you look at what the president has been saying for every jobs number for the past year or so, it’s almost exactly the same,” White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer said today at a POLITICO luncheon here on the economy. “We’re moving in the right direction; we’re creating jobs.” “No matter what the number is, that’s how we’ll approach it,” he siad....

    A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit invalidated the Texas voter ID law on the grounds that “it would have a disparate effect on minorities.” Writing for the Court, David Tatel pointed out that “the photo requirement is a heavier burden for both Blacks and Hispanics. Blacks are disproportionately in trouble with law enforcement authorities. Forcing them to identify themselves at the polls could increase the chances they could be arrested on outstanding warrants. Many Hispanics, on the other hand, are in the country illegally. Forcing them to identify themselves exposes them...

    When President Obama addresses the Democratic National Convention later this week, one thing he is surely to tout is the stimulus he passed in the first year of his presidency. In September of 2009 the President said of the American Reinvestment Act, “it’s about creating jobs that will make a lasting difference in our future.” Nearly 3 years after spending over $800 billion dollars, growth is still anemic, unemployment remains above 8 percent, and the American Public is growing restless. One of the fatal flaws of the stimulus, besides its gross overstep in government expenditure, was that it went to...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. – College students from across North Carolina will arrive in Charlotte by the busload. Same with members of predominantly black churches in neighboring South Carolina. Their goal: help fill a 74,000-seat outdoor stadium to capacity when President Obama accepts the Democratic nomination Thursday night. Anything short of a full house on the final night of the Democratic Party's national convention will be instant fodder for Republicans eager to use empty seats as symbols of waning voter enthusiasm for Obama.

    So how much will Romney/Ryan have to win by  to overcome the daunting, entrenched fraud factor...? Just in time for the untold glory of the pending DNC convention is Charlotte, a citizens' voter-integrity group out of Raleigh has found over 30K deceased persons still registered to vote in the state. Since North Carolina has no voter ID law, anybody can come in and vote in one of these dead Tar Heel's names- and there's zero apparatus in-place to challenge them. Plainly, vanloads of liberal ne'er do wells with a zombie-voter list could easily be carted from polling station to polling station all...

    The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed the Government Accountability Office to conduct the study. "As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations...

    Absentee vote fraud is undermining our elections While campaigning at a senior citizen residence facility in Sweetwater during my recent race for state representative, several elderly voters mentioned that a person closely related to an important city official “handled” their absentee voting in that center. Some even said this person “voted for them.” One angry voter pulled me aside discreetly to warn me that this politically connected person actually got the mailbox keys from the residents to access their ballots, and begged me to do something about it. Unfortunately, the person they identified was also openly working on behalf of...

    State Agriculture Commissioner John McMillan on Friday called for U.S. Justice Department voting monitors to investigate possible irregularities in the Uniontown municipal elections. ... Questions were raised after Tuesday's election, when it appeared 125 percent of Uniontown's population of 1,775 people were registered to vote. A total of 1,431 people voted for mayor and slightly fewer than that voted in the council races, 570 of them by absentee ballot. The statewide average for absentee voting is about 5 percent of total votes. On Thursday, Attorney General Luther Strange's office said it was “looking into” the Uniontown numbers. ...

    Article II Super PAC wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) for the proper priority you place on the faithful observation of this national security provision of the Constitution by citing it in the first of your 2012 Nonpartisan Selection Criteria. It has come to our attention that CPD may not recognize or apply any specific definition for "natural born Citizen" in the process of qualifying candidates' satisfaction of Presidential eligibility. If this is in error, we would appreciate any information on how you qualify Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates' eligibility as natural born...
