    Put me down in the Roger Simon camp on this one: without wandering into Birther territory or the inconclusive musings of Jerome Corsi… who the heck is this guy, really? To put it bluntly: nobody knows nothin’ about the president of the United States, aka the leader of the free world. And what little we do know is highly uninformative and often contradictory.

    “President Obama is prepared to take power and begin to rule from day one.” -Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to the President of the United States Should Congress and the President fail to come to an agreement on America’s debt ceiling we could well be facing a situation that leads Barack Obama to implement a last ditch strategy that would be nothing short of a complete takeover of the United States. So says former US Treasury Under secretary Paul Craig Roberts, who knows a thing or two about finance, debt and the inner workings of our government : If the United...

    Need some Freeper help developing an idea. It seems that the most powerful person in the Obama Administration is "We Don't Know": We Don't Know who edited the Benghazie Talking Points. We Don't Know who Gave the Stand Down Order We Don't Know who in the IRS targeted Conservative Groups. So in keeping with "Who's on 1st" Please add you suggestions for other activities were conducted by "We Don't Know"

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 9-27-2012 | MOTUS
    All around the country inquiring minds are asking: “Who is this president of ours, who has declared war on freedom of speech instead of on the Islamic terrorists who burned our embassy and killed our ambassador?” To find out I would highly recommend Dinesh D'Souza's film (while it’s still available for viewing in this country) 2016. Or you could read BO’s first autobiography, Dreams From My Father. He tells you in his own words: “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully.” Friends practicing for their audition as “mainstream” advisors to the Preezy ... “The more...

    Liberals:President Barack Obama: "If you love me, you've got to help me pass this bill." President Obama to a high school audience: “Tell Congress, pass the American Jobs Act.” President Obama: "It's estimated that the American Jobs Act would add two percentage points to the GDP, and add as many as 1.9 million jobs, and bring the unemployment rate down by a full percentage point." Valerie Jarrett, White House senior adviser, to Rachel Maddow on President Obama's jobs plan: "The Congress should pass this plan and they should do it right this minute...there’s no reason why we can’t move forward...

    In Washington, bigwigs can misspeak and misstep a million times without drawing attention. And then there are the seemingly harmless moments that stick to a person like super glue: Joe Wilson barking “You lie!”; Jesse Jackson mumbling into a hot mic that he wants to castrate Barack Obama; Dan Quayle trying to spell things. Like coal crushed into diamonds by the pressure of a million eyeballs, such moments are forever. During an exclusive dinner hosted Monday by the Alfalfa Club, Obama adviser Valerie Jarret had just such a moment. And were it not for an irritated tipster, Jarret might have...

    Obama’s connections to less than reputable characters and groups like Goldman Sachs, the Chicago Climate Exchange, “Fannie and Freddie,” former Chicago Governor Rod Blagojevich, Franklin Raines, Bill Ayers, Van Jones, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, etc. (the list appears infinite) have placed Americans in the unfortunate position of having to question everything that the government says and does. This epiphany has forced the Central Illinois 9/12 project to investigate the suspiciously preferable treatment Obama and his cohorts have provided to the Chicago-based, community-based investment bank, Shorebank. According to the 9/12 group, Shorebank is “focused on domestic and foreign microfinancing, is heavily engaged...

    CHICAGO (AP) — Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's lawyers are asking the judge in his corruption case to bar testimony from convicted fixer Tony Rezko.... The lawyers said any witness convicted of a felony and still awaiting sentence would feel too much pressure to say whatever the government wanted to hear.

    WHEN President Barack Obama’s secret service codename was revealed as Renegade and his wife Michelle’s as Renaissance, the names seemed perfect for a first couple who had come to Washington to shake things up. More than a year into the Obama administration, with healthcare yet to be reformed, Wall Street banks continuing to pay huge bonuses and Guantanamo Bay prison still open, that mood of hope has turned to disillusion. Obama’s policy of engagement has yielded no progress in the Middle East or Iran; the war in Afghanistan continues to exact a big toll in lives and dollars; while the...

    New study provides insight into 141+ years of political hijinks Cook County has been a "dark pool of political corruption" for more than a century, a new study by the University of Illinois at Chicago says. Nearly 150 employees, politicians and contractors in the nation's second-largest county have been convicted on corruption charges since 1957, according to a report released Thursday by the university and the Better Government Association (.pdf) The 33-page study gives a history of corruption, starting from 1869 when county commissioners were jailed for rigging a bid to paint City Hall. It also details hiring scandals, including...

    "Don't think we're not keeping score, brother." That's what President Barack Obama said to Rep. Peter DeFazio in a closed-door meeting of the House Democratic Caucus last week, according to the Associated Press. A few weeks ago, Mr. DeFazio voted against the administration's stimulus bill. The comment from Mr. Obama was a presidential rebuke and part of a new, hard-nosed push by the White House to pressure Congress to adopt the president's budget. He has mobilized outside groups and enlisted forces still in place from the Obama campaign. Senior presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett and her chief of staff, Michael Strautmanis,...

    The Daley Machine Goes National Michael Reagan Thursday, December 11, 2008 At the moment it seems clear that Barack Obama has had no direct involvement in the growing scandal involving Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, but nothing can remove the stench of Chicago politics that engulfs Obama thanks to his appointments of the Chicago Three. Let it be said at the outset -- the only way Barack Obama can separate himself from any hint of the sordid corruption that is the earmark of Chicago's Daley machine is to send the Chicago Three back to the political sewer from which they have...

    Valerie Jarrett, Habitat Company, premier property managers provide residents with mice, sewer backups and collapsed roofs Mrs. Clinton assumed full taunting mode in a January Democratic presidential candidate debate. She aggressively battled “bad” Republican ideas, she told Obama, “when you were practicing law and representing your contributor, Rezko, in his slumlord business in inner-city Chicago.” Obama feebly replied he was merely an associate at a law firm that represented a church group working with “this individual” and had done a few hours legal work. Hillary could have attacked Obama for accepting political contributions from Tony Rezko at the same time...
