  • Team Arpaio: Obama ID 'Document' Fraud Could Lead To Mail And Wire Fraud; Missing Obama Year

    Lt. Mike Zullo in a weekend radio interview revealed that Barack Obama's August 4, 1961 birthday may not actually be true. Zullo stated that August 4, 1961 could have been the day the plane from Kenya landed in Hawaii and was used as Obama's birthday for the record. He made the allegation that the birth certificate that Perkins Coie lawyer Judith Corley flew to Hawaii to get and return it to Washington was not the document that was presented to the American public on April 27,2011. For more stunning information from Mike Zullo, listen to the two part interview.

    Bombing suspect reportedly a fan of al-Qaida magazine and Alex Jones website Videos on the Internet and an online jihadist magazine may have played a part in the Boston Marathon bombings suspects’ self-radicalization, according to reports. New accounts say the brothers learned how to build a bomb from the online magazine, Inspire, which gave instructions on how to make them with a pressure cooker. Pressure cooker bombs, authorities say, were used in the attacks at the Boston Marathon. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect, reportedly told investigators there was no foreign influence on him and his brother. But apparently the brothers...

    Iran's Press TV ^ | April 22, 2013 | Ramin Mazaheri, Press TV, Seoul
    While oil has been the motivating factor for US-led wars in the Middle East, many are wondering what might be behind their constant belligerence towards Pyongyang. But while North Korea may not have oil, the estimated value of their mineral deposits is a staggering $6 trillion, according to the South Korean government. North Korea is sitting on world’s second-largest supply of rare earth metals, which are essential for modern electronics like laptops, smartphones, solar electricity panels and precision missiles. The US, along with their allies Japan, Taiwan and South Korea, three major producers of sophisticated electronics, are surely interested in...

    The Global Festival, which will bring Neil Young, the Black Keys, the Foo Fighters and others to New York City on Sept. 29, is free. Concerts held in Central Park are required to be. But there's a catch. And it's a big one. In order to get your tickets for the consciousness-raiser, which is timed to coincide with a United Nations General Assembly meeting on global poverty, you've got to demonstrate that you're a supporter of the NGO that's sponsoring the show. That means going to work for it — for free. < snip > The organization may well have...

    With Representative Ron Paul performing solidly in Republican presidential polls – and near the top in Iowa – a recurring question nags at political wise-guys: Will the Texas libertarian’s corps of loyal and energized supporters be an asset to an eventual Republican nominee? Or will they be a liability if that nominee is not named Ron Paul — meaning, they will vote only for Mr. Paul as a third-party or write-in candidate, or stay home altogether, which would probably help the prospective Democratic nominee, President Obama? Based on discussion with a dozen supporters at candidate events across the state —...

    A few weeks ago the Revolutionary Communist Party USA (RCPUSA) announced that they had completed a draft proposal for a new national charter. In truth, the document’s aim is to be the guiding legal code for a multi-national territory and is appropriately styled the “Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America.” In order for the new constitution to take effect, the “present capitalist-imperialist system” in the United States would have to undergo a little historical liposuction. First, the part of the union that was once a part of Mexico would be returned to that country. The RCPUSA wants...

    Jesse Ventura stated at Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty rally in St. Paul, Minnesota, that he would run for president in 2012 if he determined that the grassroots made significant political advances in the interim. It is doubtful he would run for the Libertarian party nod, given that his name alone is bigger than the entire Libertarian party. Ventura could run as an Independent, getting onto all 50 state ballots and possibly winning. This is something that I will be following personally. It looks like the grassroots is already starting to generate momentum for a run in 2012.

    The Animal Liberation Front has claimed responsibility for raiding a fur farm in Jefferson on Monday, releasing mink and destroying breeding records. The front, described by the government as one of the nation's leading domestic terrorist organizations, wrote that it freed about 40 domesticated mink from the Jefferson Fur Farm to give them a chance at survival. The note was signed ALF-Cascadia. "These animals are not capitalist commodities to be bought and sold for fashion or vanity, but unique individuals deserving of liberation from human exploitation," said the note, released today by the North American Animal Liberation Press Office in...

    San Francisco's picturesque skyline would be dark at night under a first-in-the-nation law proposed Tuesday that would mandate all skyscrapers turn off nonemergency lights after work hours.

"Anyone who has passed through our Financial District after dark knows that many large financial buildings in the downtown keep their lights on throughout the night even when there is not work or janitorial service going on," Peskin said. The proposed light ban is reminiscent of the so-called "watt cops," the police officers who patrolled...

    ...former President Bill Clinton told off some 9/11 truthers that were heckling him during a 50-minute speech he was giving at a fundraiser for his wife in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Tuesday. Sadly, he didn't say anything about Rosie O'Donnell. However, as reported by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, what the former President did say -- as shouts came from the crowd about 9/11 being an inside job -- was rather delicious...Early in his speech, Clinton was sporadically heckled. One heckler shouted that 9/11 was a fraud, and Clinton bristled. "No, it wasn't a fraud. I'll be glad to talk about it if...
