    Deep in the bowels of Mount Doom, a little known federal agency is about to get top billing in the “border wars”.  The Office of Refugee Resettlement is the heavy hand and hammer of Obama’s apparent strategy to flood the USA with illegal immigrants and let them disappear into every small town in America. ORR is a 1980 reaction to Jimmy Carter’s infamous Mariel boatlift, in which Castro emptied his jails into south Florida.  Like all government viruses released into the wild, it multiplied over the years, building up to a budget of $1.489 billion in 2014.  That includes an increase of nearly a...

    Vote of Confidence A huge black turnout in November 1992 altered Chicago's electoral landscape—and raised a new political star: a 31-year-old lawyer named Barack Obama. By Gretchen Reynolds A huge black turnout in November 1992 altered Chicago's electoral landscape-and raised a new political star: a 31-year-old lawyer named Barack Obama. In the final, climactic buildup to November's general election, with George Bush gaining ground on Bill Clinton in Illinois and the once-unstoppable campaign of senatorial candidate Carol Moseley Braun embroiled in allegations about her mother's Medicare liability, one of the most important local stories managed to go virtually unreported: The...

    What do you do if you're a street artist turned marketing phenom who uses other people's images when someone uses one of your designs? If you're Shepard Fairey, apparently, you call your lawyers. Fairey, of Obama HOPE poster fame, is defending himself against charges he infringed on an Associated Press copyrighted photo in making the poster. He's also been criticized by artists for using others' work without attribution. His lawyers claim in the AP case that he is protected by fair use provisions of the copyright law. It turns out, however, that the activist art appropriator is a wee bit...

    Barack Obama's chief campaign strategist David Axelrod, once worked for a man who was an identified member of the Communist Party USA, a registered agent of the Soviet Union and a paid disseminator of Soviet black propaganda. This man went on to become a key Chicago political fixer who helped elect communist linked politicians including the late Chicago mayor Harold Washington and former US Senator Carol Moseley Braun. This man knew Barack Obama and was a key member of an organisation which endorsed Barack Obama in his 2004 US Senate race. Barack and Michelle Obama were active members of this...

    Former Indiana Gov. Robert D. Orr, the consummate gentleman and Indiana's elder statesman, died unexpectedly Wednesday following outpatient kidney surgery, former aides and associates said. Orr, who overhauled the state's education system and ended political party control of motor vehicle licensing, died at Indiana University Medical Center at 9:17 p.m., said Mark Lubbers, his former press secretary. He was 86. The probable cause of death was believed to be heart failure. "The idea that his heart would give out is so sad because it was so strong for all those years," said John Hammond III, one of his former aides...

    Capt. John Orr served as a renowned fire captain and arson investigator. That is noble, and we are grateful for that service. Lt. John Kerry served his country well while in battle. That is noble, and we are grateful for that service. Unfortunately, Orr will not remembered for good things. He became an arsonist and turned on those with whom he worked. People died because of him. He will be remembered forever for arson, not for noble service. Unfortunately, Kerry will not be remembered for good things. He became an anti-war activist and turned on his fellow troops. Soldiers died...

    CHICAGO SCANDALS REACH DALEY'S DOOR Associated Press Tuesday, October 28, 1997; 6:56 a.m. EST BY JAMES WEBB Associated Press Writer EXCERPT: Daley scolded minority aldermen and low-level city and county workers who fell to federal probes involving illegal dumping and no-show workers who are friends or relatives of public officials. In July, he pushed grumbling aldermen to adopt ethics rules governing their conduct. But political observers say the behavior pales by comparison to the behind-the-scenes relationships getting attention now. "What's different now is the light has finally shown on where the real money is being made," said Alderman Joe Moore,...
