  • The Haspel Pick Breaks the Model

    05/14/2018 6:14:24 AM PDT · by rktman · 1 replies ^ | 5/14/2018 | Ishmael Jones
    As a Trump supporter I’m always delighted to find the genius in Trump’s actions. Where’s the genius in picking Gina? Here it is: Gina may have done a great deal of sitting, but she did some of it in foreign countries. She showed an early interest in espionage in foreign lands, and has had multiple, successful foreign assignments. She has shown respect for acquiring foreign languages and skills. She's a trained reports officer -- a strict gatekeeper in the intelligence process. The phony Trump Dossier would never have gotten past her. Any reports officer would instantly recognize it as fake...

    Newsweek Is Now History. The liberal Newsweek Magazine is going out of business, but not before it attacks the President. This is quite an article, even more so when you consider that NEWSWEEK finally had the guts to admit it. WOW! Newsweek COVER!!! It is their last cover before they fold. Also read the article at the end. AMAZING!!! Finally, Matt Patterson and Newsweek speak out about Obama. This is timely and tough. As many of you know, Newsweek has a reputation for being extremely liberal. The fact that their editor saw fit to print the following article about Obama...
  • VA Seeks To Remove Net Worth Reporting For Healthcare Benefits

    The VA has proposed removing the net worth reporting requirement for veterans seeking VA healthcare. In a proposal scheduled to be filed in the Federal Register on October 20, the VA seeks to make permanent its temporary practice of not requiring a veteran to submit a net-worth statement when they apply for healthcare. The VA will also no longer require annual net-worth statements from veterans who are currently enrolled in its healthcare programs. ... The VA now seeks to remove any wording in the law related to its collection of net-worth data to prevent any confusion and make it permanently...
  • Scott Walker Doesn’t Need a Degree — and Neither Do You - Many great job applicants lack a degree

    National Review Online ^ | February 20, 2015 | Michael J. Petrilli
    The pundit class is raising questions about whether Scott Walker’s lack of a college degree disqualifies him from being America’s 45th president. This is what educators call a “teachable moment,” because the issue goes much deeper than Governor Walker’s biography. Of course a college credential shouldn’t be a prerequisite for the presidency, but that’s also true for many jobs that today require a degree even when it’s not really necessary. That’s a big problem. Many American leaders are obsessed with college as the path to economic opportunity. President Obama, for instance, wants America to lead the world in college graduates...
  • Cruz likely eligible to be President

    Big Givernment ^ | March 11 | Ken Klukowski
    On Mar. 8, reporter Carl Cameron on Special Report on Fox News Channel was surveying potential GOP 2016 presidential candidates. Then he raised Ted Cruz--one of the most brilliant constitutional lawyers ever to serve in the Senate--the new 41-year old Hispanic senator from Texas. Cameron added, “But Cruz was born in Canada and is constitutionally ineligible” to run for president. While many people assume that, it’s probably not true. Cameron was referring to the Constitution’s Article II requirement that only a “natural born citizen” can run for the White House. No one is certain what that means. Citizenship was primarily...
  • Hearing to begin for voter ID challenge

    01/15/2012 6:02:18 PM PST · by afraidfortherepublic · 30 replies · 1+ views
    A judge is scheduled to hear arguments this week about the constitutionality of Wisconsin's new voter photo identification law. Supporters argue the Republican-authored law will help curtail fraud. Opponents counter the law disenfranchises groups of people who likely don't have identification, such as the poor, minorities and the disabled. The League of Women Voters filed a lawsuit in Dane County against Gov. Scott Walker and state election officials challenging the law. The group argues the state constitution bars only children, felons and the mentally incompetent from voting and the Legislature improperly prohibited a new class of people — namely, those...

    Obama wasn't always so reserved: In one anecdote, a household servant, Saman, tells of an 8- or 9-year-old Obama hitting him twice in the chest for not turning out a light as he'd requested. Perhaps Obama learned to dole out such punishment from his mother, who, according to two sources, would spank Obama with her hand or a belt if he misbehaved or failed to finish his homework. (Obama denies his mom used such parenting tactics.) Then there's this anecdote: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” [Obama's stepfather] Lolo asked Barry one evening, according to Saman....

    Politicons ^ | February 11th | Henry D'Andrea
    Our good friends over at Conservatives4Palin have come up with a good solid list of 47 reasons Gov. Sarah Palin is qualified to be President, all in honor of her 47th birthday. Here are just a few: 1) She won’t perjure herself by taking the Presidential oath of office like many of her potential opponents. 2) She has 9 years of executive experience, more than 3 times as much as the current President. As Governor, she held the 2nd most powerful gubernatorial office in the country. 3)She knows how to budget. In her years as Governor, she reduced the state...

    Editor’s Note: This is the second installment in a two-part series on Governor Sarah Palin’s qualifications for the presidency. We hope Barbara Walters reads both of them so she can be more "informed" for her next interview with Governor Palin, whenever that might occur. She might even be able to ask an intelligent question. Qualification: an essential skill, quality, or attribute that makes somebody suitable for a job, activity, or task.In the first part of our series, we explored Governor Sarah Palin’s nearly two decades of experience as a city councilor, mayor and governor, her work as an oil and gas regulator, and...

    GEORGETOWN, Ohio -- A quo warranto action filed in February 2009 in the Twelfth District Court of Appeals had been stayed while awaiting the resolution of an appeal meant to unseal criminal court records for Brown County Sheriff Dwayne Wenninger. With the resolution of the appeal -- which was denied -- the quo warranto case will move forward, said plaintiff Dennis Varnau. A writ of quo warranto can be sought against a person who "usurps, intrudes into, or unlawfully holds or exercises" a public office, according to Ohio Revised Code.

    The Daily News Record ^ | May 19, 2009 | Jeff Mellott
    U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke, has signed on as a co-sponsor of a bill that would require presidential candidates to provide proof of their birthplace and, hence, satisfy a constitutional requirement to be able to run for the office. Last year, questions came up about Republican candidate U.S. Sen. John McCain's eligibility under the Constitution to run for president because of his birth at a Naval air station in the former U.S. Canal Zone in Panama. McCain's parents were both American citizens. The validity of President Obama's birth certificate also has been challenged in court. The state of Hawaii provided...

    This originally appeared on Texasdarlin in the summer, but it is even more important now with the Donofrio case in front of SCOTUS. It is lengthy but very relevant. Please see both parts 1 & 2 of the article. Who is eligible to be POTUS under Article II of the Constitution and why? The answer isn’t what most people think and people need to know! People made a big ruckus about McCain’s eligibility but what about Obama? He may have held anything up to 4 other Nationalities. If a Naturalized Citizen cannot hold the Office of POTUS neither can a...

    Americans inherently sense that something is horrifically wrong in this election... The 2008 presidential campaign of Barack Obama is a case of truth being stranger than fiction and conspiracy being more than just theory. Hollywood couldn’t write a more intriguing script of crime, corruption, deceit, cover-ups and international intrigue. Obama’s cultish grip on his young ill-educated minions makes Jim Jones and David Koresh look like beginners. Anatomy of a Coup A sudden and decisive action in politics, especially one resulting in a drastic change of government illegally, or by force, is a Coup d'état. It’s important to recognize the difference...

    Welcome to Barack Obama's America, a land where mere citizens dare not challenge the legitimacy of The One. A country where behind the mask of democracy lays massive voter fraud and intimidation of opponents. A nation where campaign finance laws are yet another minor obstacle to be overcome in the process of stealing an election. In an election season marked with massive voter fraud, and in which the least qualified Democratic candidate has spirited the nomination away from a rival who soundly beat him in nearly every major primary, a federal court has ruled that the common man has no...

    In behavior that has baffled understanding, Senator Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) are vigorously and expensively fighting Philip Berg’s lawsuit demanding that the Senator provide his birth certificate to verify that he meets the “natural born citizen” requirement to serve as president. “Any normal person who met the requirement would simply produce the document in question,” Berg said. “Hiring an army of lawyers to avoid taking this uncomplicated step suggests that Senator Obama is either an abnormal person or one who doesn’t meet the requirement.” John Lavelle, Obama’s attorney on this case, offered a different explanation. “Berg’s...
