April 21st, 2013
We ran a story earlier which has stunned many establishment media watchers, to include one fairly prominent former journalist/author in the US close to me, simply because the US media has not yet chosen to widely run this story. The story involves additional arrests and suspects related to a Boston area terror-cell which the bombers were allegedly part of. The story appears further down in this column.
The point simply is the fact that none within the US media are covering this story which has appeared only in the United Kingdom media and later in Conservative blogs and the alternative media.
Now, many might wonder, why is that? The answer is fairly simple but encompasses several reasons.
The first reason being that the Obama regime media lap-dogs, which are comprised of most major news outlets, are fearful that this will weaken the administration's political agenda. Indeed, at the DNC this year, the entire function was dedicated largely to the fact that Obama had beaten back Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.
That facet has since been proven to be a lie or at least a gross distortion at best, but is certainly in concert with the civilization jihadist goals of stealthy media-think infiltration by Islamists.
The second reason would ostensibly be that the heavily infiltrated media does not view radical Islamists as a threat to America, at least not in the news. Remember when they were hoping that the attack was from a 'lone-wolf,' Tea Party, white-guy, Right-Wing extremist over taxes and patriotism? The media has long been in the tank for the religion of Islam while largely despising the nation's Christian foundation.
By the way, Islamic Jihadism is considered Left-Wing extremism
The third reason would be both from an immigration standpoint and also from the 2nd amendment argument; it's hard to disarm a nation under attack from religious fanatic terrorist cells and it's even harder to push broader immigration reform when our leaky borders have allowed numerous terrorist cells to operate in the US.
But if it becomes news that's undeniable; why do they not run it, you might now be thinking? The answer, once again, is fairly simple. The media must first work out a narrative that endeavor's to support their worldview, while still reporting something that which they do not wish to be widely known. It's in effect allowing each colluding member to "get their collective ducks in a row" so to speak, while also hoping that something comes along, in vain I might add, that pushes this story well below headline material.
It's happened before, and it will happen again.
So there you have your initial reasoning as to why all of this "simply is."
Three things to remember about this story:
First: There were three unexploded bombs that were dismantled (as confirmed by an FBI agent) which were later denied in the Boston marathon bombing, which would seem to indicate that more than just the two brothers were involved.
Second: The Saudi National, which a number of Conservative news outlets are focusing on, could be the missing link in this bizarre story, as mostly reported by Glenn Beck and confirmed by multiple congress persons who have access to ICE documents.
Third: The DHS has summarily denied any implication of guilt towards the Saudi National, who is slated to be deported as quickly as possible due to terrorist connections, according to these sources.
The story corroborating our earlier story from the UK Mirror appears below from the International Business Times, also a UK Publication.
By Timur Moon
The FBI is hunting a 12-man terrorist "sleeper cell" linked to the brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings.
The Bureau believes that Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev received training in bomb-making before they carried out the attack, which killed three people.
Tamerlan, 26, was killed in a shoot-out with police in the early hours of Friday. His brother Dzhokhar is in intensive care at a Boston hospital, and remains unable to speak due to gunshot wounds to the neck.
It emerged that a man and two women were arrested 60 miles from Boston in the port of New Bedford in the hours before Dzhokhar's capture. The three are believed to be of college age.
A source close to the investigation said: "We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone. The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated and not the kind of thing people learn from Google.
"They were too advanced. Someone gave the brothers the skills and it is now our job to find out just who they were. Agents think the sleeper cell has up to a dozen members and has been waiting several years for their day to come."
More than 1,000 FBI agents have been assigned to track down the cell. A specialist team of CIA and FBI interrogators is on hand at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre in Boston, waiting to question Dzhokhar.
The FBI has admitted interviewing Tamerlan two years ago, at the request of the Russian government, but said it wound up its inquiries after interviews with Tamerlan and other family members "did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign".
The FBI now says the pair were part of a terrorist cell, though they were not under surveillance at the time of the bombings, US Government officials said.
The brothers were carrying six bombs, a handgun and a rifle at the time of the shoot-out in which Tamerlan was killed. Three devices - thought to be pipe bombs - were detonated.
Investigators are working to establish whether the brothers had help in making the bombs, which were contained in pressure cookers and packed with nails and ball bearings.
Their mother Zubeidat, speaking from her home in Russia, claimed the boys had been framed by the FBI, saying the bureau had been "controlling" Tamerlan for the past five years. Their father Anzor has also said he believed his sons had been "set up" by the FBI.
Tamerlan, a talented boxer, was said by neighbours to have become increasingly radical in his Islamic beliefs in recent years.
The FBI are retracing his movements during a six-month trip he made to the Russia Caucusus last year, including a visit to Chechnya, during which his extremism is said to have caused arguments with family members.
"It's a key thread for investigators," said Kevin Brock, a senior FBI counter-terrorism official.
Tamerlan's American wife Katherine Russell, 24, with whom he had a three-year-old daughter Zahara, is said to have converted to Islam when she married him, and taken to wearing the veil. She was taken in for questioning by FBI agents on Friday.
Tamerlan's Russian-language YouTube page contains numerous links to extremist Islamic sites, including one that features an hour-long speech by the radical cleric Feiz Mohammed, along with other videos labelled "Terrorists" and "Islam".
Dzhokhar, a scholarship student with ambitions to become a brain surgeon, was described by friends as more "mild-mannered" and "easy going" than his brother. Popular with fellow students, he was said to enjoy smoking marijuana, and was seen by friends "looking relaxed" at a college party two days after the bombings, shortly before police released photographs of the two suspects.
Dzhokhar is said to have run over his brother as he made his getaway in a stolen SUV while Tamerlan lay handcuffed on the ground with fatal gunshot wounds late on Thursday.
Investigators have confirmed they will invoke public safety powers to interrogate him without reading him his "Miranda" rights to remain silent and have a lawyer present.
Authorities hope he will not invoke his right to silence, and will talk to them about any other terrorist threats, and the location of possible further explosives.
Prosecutors are considering appropriate charges, with a federal charge of using a weapon of mass destruction to kill people carrying a possible death sentence, though there is no death penalty in the state of Massachusetts.
Three people died in the attacks on the marathon and another 176 were injured. A policeman at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology was shot dead during the subsequent manhunt.

Just as we suspected from the start.
The Boston Marathon bombers were exactly who and what we first thought they were.
First, they were terrorists, a word difficult to say for many in the media and in government.
Second, they didn't come from the Tea Party as most in the media were pining for.
Nor was it Right-Wing Extremists, violent Christian fundamentalists, or any of the things that the media, the Democrats, and the Obama Regime, peace be unto them, were bleeding tears for.
They were violent, extremist, Islamic immigrants from Chechnya and the media is now weeping pathetically.
Liberal, effeminate, white guys all over the US today are hunched over their computer screens with tissues and red blotchy faces dreaming of what might have been...bless their hearts.
But if you decide to conduct a search for Islamic terrorists killed in Boston, or Muslim bombers, firefight; or anything else with regard to Islamic fundamentalists and Boston, you will find little if nothing of this story.
Below is the real story from a favorite web "specialist site" on the internet and "why are we letting these people into our country," by the way?
"Tamerlan says he doesn't drink or smoke anymore: 'God said no alcohol.' A muslim, he says: 'There are no values anymore,' and worries that 'people can't control themselves.'"
"Everything We Know About Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Dead Bombing Suspect," by Timothy Burke at Deadspin, April 19:
Authorities are now confirming the two suspects sought in Monday's Boston Marathon bombing are two Russian-born Chechen brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev. Tamerlan, the older brother, is dead. Here's what we know about him.
It's not much, and most of it's derived from a photo gallery. We know Tamerlan Tsarnaev was 26 and a competitive boxer for a club named Team Lowell, who won the Rocky Marciano Trophy for being New England Golden Gloves heavyweight champion in 2010. He did this while taking time off from school at Bunker Hill Community College, where he studied in hopes of being an engineer.
The Wild Card: Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi
The element in all of this that has "inquiring minds wanting to know" is how the Saudi National who was initially a suspect and is now a pending deportee (after Obama's meeting with the Saudi foreign Minister) and who also was visited by Michelle Obama while in the hospital after the attack, might fit into all of this. Was there a connection between this Saudi National and the two Islamic terrorist bombers?
We do know, despite concerted Regime efforts to the otherwise, that DHS had this Saudi National flagged as a security risk due to either terrorist ties and or terror activities. We also know that DHS chief Napolitano denied that virtually anything was amiss with this Saudi National. Hmmm....
Below are some of the things that we do know about the violent, jihad extremist, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, also from Jihad Watch:
Boston jihad bomber's YouTube page features videos by Sheikh Feiz Mohammed, who called on Muslims to kill enemies of Islam
The YouTube page is here. On the right of the upper row and the left of the second row are videos by Feiz Mohammed.
"Police seize Muslim 'kill enemies' videos," by Simon Kearney and Tracy Ong for The Australian, January 20, 2007:
FIREBRAND cleric Sheik Feiz Mohamed's defence of his comments on a DVD calling children to jihad has been undermined by revelations, the video also urges Muslims to kill the enemies of Islam and praises martyrs with a violent interpretation of jihad.
In the DVD, which runs for almost four hours, Sheik Feiz describes inmates of Guantanamo Bay as better Muslims than those in Australia, who would would not forsake their lifestyles for martyrdom.
"The brothers in Cuba are better than us," he said. "They are being examined through the best examination (a reference to God's judgment) and the like of them worldwide."
The sheik, who left Australia in 2005 to live in his father's homeland, Lebanon, exorts his followers to seek the honourable death of the believer, quoting from narrations about the prophet Mohammed.
"They fight in the cause, they kill others - the enemies who fight Islam and they themselves are killed as martyrs," he said. He gives the example of a mujaheddin who fought in Bosnia in the 1990s who spoke of nothing but jihad and was killed on the battlefield. "What a beautiful person to be associated with. Would you not like to be an associate of this person?"
The DVD was a recording of a series of passionate fire-and-brimstone sermons that told his audience over several weeks nearly four years ago his thoughts on the way to live their lives. "This is our intention that we want to have children and offer them as soldiers defending Islam, loving Islam," he said.
Details of the DVD's contents have sparked an Australian Federal Police investigation and have been met with condemnation.
AFP officers visited the Muslim youth centre founded by Sheik Feiz yesterday to collect a copy of his DVD, which was handed over voluntarily by members of the 4000-strong youth movement.
The two federal agents who arrived at the Global Islamic Youth Centre at Liverpool, in Sydney's west, declined to comment on the investigation.
About 200 worshippers were at midday prayers yesterday because Friday is Islam's holiest day of the week.
The centre's managers referred The Weekend Australian's inquiries to a phone number, which rang out.
One of Sheik Feiz's former students, Zeky Mallah, who was acquitted of terrorism charges, said the sermon was normal. "That's something that's normal with any Islamic scholar. It's just a way of speaking about things," he said.
Sheik Feiz told The Australian on Thursday that his reference to jihad did not mean violence. He said he was against suicide bombing and violence against others.
However, the DVD is littered with references to violence and a call to arms - most of which is made using examples of historical warriors as an admonishment to modern Muslims for straying from their path.
"If you're a hardliner, you'll say these in lectures; if you're a moderate, you'll keep these views to yourself," Mr Mallah said. "It's not really inciting violence. It is saying to stand up for yourself, to defend yourself and defend your land."
Muslim internet forums were buzzing with criticism of the media for running the story yesterday, accusing news outlets of misinterpreting the meaning of jihad, which can also mean a peaceful quest to be a good Muslim....

Conservative Refocus Notes
So, are we living in interesting times yet, as the old Chinese insult goes?
It has been a fascinating couple of weeks in the news, so much so that we decided to review just a few of the stories that I originally wrote in the very popular news section of this website, and also, while we finish up the latest article/project for the main commentary section of Conservative Refocus.
But hang on to your seats; a few of these stories are some real doozies, others might be the thing of nightmares, quite frankly, which leads us to this first article in our selection:
The Litmus Test and Civil War in America: Who Will Shoot Americans?
Note: To hear a radio show conversation between Dr. Jim Garrow and I, on this subject, please visit the above link where we both appeared on the Joe Goldner Show (in the last half hour of the show)
Nobel prize nominee and author, Dr. Jim Garrow is featured in this piece which talks about the astonishing examples of un-constitutional overreach, which is going on in the America of today.
In the clip, none other than highly respected journalist Lou Dobbs, of CNN fame, kicks off with his questions regarding the DHS and what they've been up to. From there, the narrative goes deeper and deeper into the troubling aspect of increasing governmental control that is slowly but inexorably squeezing Americans in its grip.
Dr. Garrow is highly troubled about DHS ammunition purchases, FEMA Camps, MRAP purchases, civilian security forces, and all of the other things which the mainstream media has chosen to serially ignore in support of the Obama Regime and its beyond nefarious goals for the US, as a whole.
Is all of this real? We would prefer to think that it's not, and yet, as humans, we more often than not see only that which we wish to see, which is what those in power have historically counted upon.
The pieces are, indeed, slowly coming together, and the more or less ghastly puzzle is coming into focus, and it is not a pleasant one, but outcomes can be easily altered while remembering the fact that nothing is written in stone. Well, except for unbridled liberal-Marxist stupidity, which leads us to this next article:
Resistance is Futile Says Liberal MSNBC Propagandist: Your Children Belong to the Collective (YouTube)
Increasingly, Americans have probably begun to believe that they are living inside of some sort of bizarre Star Tek episode where the Borg appear to be one of us, but certainly are not, in both words and practice, as evidenced in the below clip.
But, be that as it may, the commune-hive needs a constant supply of fresh new workers, and guess what? Your child is on their borg-like, Liberal agenda.
The Liberals are of the collective, and they want your kids to be their new drones, says this MSNBC apparatchik, Melissa Harris Hyphen Perry. You don't own your kids, they belong to the Collective, she says, and she probably believes it, to boot.
She says we haven't paid enough for education, when in fact, we pay more than any other country in the world. We haven't had enough of a collective approach to the children in maintaining that children are ours, when in fact, they belong to their communities.
Um, no they do not.
The ridiculousness of this entire clip is so beyond the pale of logic and critical thinking that it largely defies any sort of rational refutation. In fact, when we look at a number of inner-city projects, which have heavily utilized the Liberal approach to the "it takes a village" mentality, we see poverty, gangs, drugs and rampant crime to the point of debauchery.
So, no thanks Melissa Hyphen Perry. You give your kids to the village, I'll keep and instruct mine, and lets compare notes in ten years.
Who would give their kids to the collective? It takes an idiot, which brings us to the next story, which you might want to pay very close attention to:
US Public Health Service Conducting Information Searches in Your Neighborhood? "Just Say No" Say Experts
The Department of Health and Human Services is issuing letters to "select" members of communities in order to invade your home, interview you, and reach a conclusion about your lifestyle, which easily could result in your life being taken over.
At the bottom of the letter pictured, you will see that the interviews are being conducted in conjunction with section 505 of the Public Health Service Act. However, when you go to this particular document , you find language speaking largely to mental health and drug issues.
While the document guarantes confidentiality, it does not indicate that action cannot be taken by the Federal Government against those who may be deemed worthy of "help."
Some individuals indicate that the interviews could result in extraordinarily negative consequences.
This is why many activists have warned against allowing interviews to be conducted. In the letter, repayment enticements of $30 dollars are being offered in an effort to allow the interviewer in.
Don't do it, it's none of their business, and you could pay a hefty price, say experts.
"Just say no." You are perfectly within your constitutional rights against search and seizure as a US citizen, and shut the door.
Quite simple, in fact, especially when you take note of this next story:
DHS Denies Ridiculous 1.6 Billion Ammunition Purchase Stories: It's Actually Only 1.2 Billion Rounds
In an article at US News by Elizabeth Flock, the stories that have been bouncing around the Right-Wing blogosphere for months, about the DHS purchases of Masssive amounts of ammunition totalling 1. 6 billion, are completely wrong.
The actual number is closer to 1.2 billion rounds and the keywords are "up to."
Oh, well, shoot, now that's just different?
Indeed, when you read the article's impetus, we find that DHS admits that massive rounds purchases are made in order to save money, and these purchases ostensibly last for over 5 years. In fact, these massive five year purchases are made every year, right? So, what's the big hairy deal?
So, is 1.2 billion a relatively small amount as opposed to the 1.6 billion, making everything just peachy keen, or should we still be asking questions like, "why such large ammo purchases to save money when we essentially have no money unless it's borrowed?"
Or maybe even we should ask, "why are local and state law enforcement individuals and civilians getting pissed because of the lack of available ammunition?"
Do most governments buy enough goods to last for five years when, in fact, they are virtually broke? Despite the smarmy tone of the below US News article, any true journalist would not so easily be convinced if even a flotsam of critical thinking skills are engaged.
Back to square one on this huge question, which is where we were yesterday, except no one has explained the massive MRAP purchase of 2,717 vehicles, at least not yet. Maybe they will blame global warming and state the need for a swarthy vehicle capable of withstanding high-water, high occupancy, vehicle lanes leading into the inner-beltway.
Oh, by the way, "it wasn't 2,717, silly, it was 2,200"--well then that's different, will be the expected response, to be sure. But if you would like to see "silly" defined, read this next article, which had a number of Conservative websites buzzing over our occasional ability to see things from afar:
Satire Now Reality in Sequester Cuts Chaos: NASA Chief Blames Sequester if Asteroid Hits
"The bottom line, as always, the funding did not come."~NASA Administrator James Bolden, who blames a lack of funding on NASA being increasingly unable to find and halt meteor and asteroid strikes.
We were just kidding, folks...or were we?
In a very popular article published several weeks ago, titled:
We poked fun at Obama's sequestration chaos by engineering some very outrageous scenarios, which might, inconceivably, be traced to the sequester cuts. In one particular scenario we blamed and fully explained how the sequestration chaos might engender future asteroid and meteor strikes on Earth, as follows:
#6- Sequester Cuts Responsible for Meteor Nearly Taking out Earth
So, many might be asking how in the world, could the sequester cuts have caused a meteor to veer into earth's atmosphere nearly taking out a section of the entire planet? To be certain, many scientists and meteorologists, who believe that climate change is not at all man-made, might have a serious problem with this theory. However, there are those other types prayerfully congregating in the low-information threshold, who might eagerly grasp onto the belief the global warming and meteor strikes belong in a related missing link type of category.
The idea of random natural earth phenomena being connected to global warming was first put forth by cerebrally noted celebrity and Hollywood actor, Danny Glover, a man who has shown a singular brilliance in slowly constructing random sentences while simultaneously voicing them.
In his initial hypothesis, it was Glover who first made the scientifically fantastic notion by stating the following after the cataclysmic Haitian earthquake:
Indeed, a wordsmith to be sure. Duly noted, now, that the initial link has been established by a voting member of the Hollywood erudite class rendering it beyond reproach, but where do the meteor strikes and sequester cuts come in? Enter the media elite and one of its better known trophy-blonde, dataticians, CNN news reader Deborah Feyerick, who first postulated to Bill Nye that an asteroid nearly entering Earth orbit has a climate change connection, as initially communicated to science guy Bill Nye:Something else is falling from the sky, and that is an asteroid...uh..what..what is coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, global warming
Mr. Guy, Bill Nye, was quick to respond that "the words Meteor and meterology come from the same root" and voila'! The eagle has landed and with an answer to our puzzling question. The fact that the Latin word "meteoros" as a root, which means "something in the air," could not dissuade either the science guy nor the dizzy info babe from surmisingly postulating that their next flight out of town could also be aboard a Latin described meteoros, nor did Nye correct Feyerick's alert dis-assertion.
So, now that the connection between meteors and global warming has been made, the question must next be asked: How might that work? Once again, quite simple to explain in using modern-day climate change scientist parlance, which can explain pretty much anything. You see, the earth's atmosphere has supposedly been altered to such a degree by man's constantly pumping carbon dioxide into the air that the atmosphere has become statically loaded with humongous amounts of both moisture and energy.
These two forces then combine, in effect, to alter the earth's orbit through the solar system by way of atmospheric drag, operating much like a solar sail in reverse. It's, in effect, much the same way as placing a roof-flap on a Nascar racer, to ostensibly keep the car from becoming airborne and smashing into fans, albeit, if it's installed correctly by the GM workers union members.
But how does that apply to the meteor? Simple, the atmospheric drag has altered the earth's orbit to such a degree that the earth has now swerved into an asteroid field, which is how all of this can easily be traced to the sequester cuts; by way of the closure of numerous regulatory enforcement agencies which operate to keep as many carbon dioxide producing entities and companies in a constant state of couch potato flux.
These agencies' newly sequestered inability to curb industry and keep the unemployed dozing in front of their TV's, rather easily explains the Earth's veerage into an asteroid field, by virtue of increased carbon dioxide output. The meteor didn't come to us, we came to it.
And God ain't Han Solo......
Indeed he ain't, and the article actually endeavors to twist the stranger-than-truth scenario into sequesterial badness as written by Reuters in Cape Canaveral, Florida, edited by Sarah Titterton and published at the UK Telegraph.
You just can't make this stuff up.....and here's the story headline:
Nasa's advice on asteroid hitting Earth: pray
But from that bit of science fiction, we travel all the way over to religious fantasy with this story, which seeks to slay the institution of marriage and replace it with "the sky's the limit" or "slippery chasm" or something like that. At this point, it's all so confusing....now, where are my aspirin?
Wagging The Dog: When Only 9 Million Gay Americans Can Change A Sanctified Institution
In a nutshell, it appears as if the Supreme Court will be leaving gay marriage up to the states, which is ostensibly where it belongs. This also probably means that gay marriage will eventually be state-sanctified by state officials in California, despite Proposition 8.
But the interesting thing, at least to me, is how a population of only 9 million Americans can effect societal change which can affect the perceptions and overall practices of over 320 million people, many of which who disagree.
Now, ladies and gentleman, does this not personify the power of how only a relative few well-directed voices can essentially control the entire argument? We Conservatives should be taking notes.
The disagreement from traditional Americans makes sense. Marriage, in prior times, was an institution both installed and hallowed by religion and society while primarily being intended as a holy union recognized by God. Somehow, despite what most religions teach, marriage is now being twisted around to include same-sex unions not originally intended.
What has always miffed me is the question of why Gays want a heterosexual institution to be applied to their unions as well. Marriage, by every definition, has always been between a man and a woman. Same-sex unions, biologically speaking, are simply not the same type of union as a heterosexual union. Period. But, Gays want to rewrite the rules and pretend that eveything will now be the same, despite every detail to the contrary and even anatomical plumbing that belies the reconfiguring.
These unions, have not been traditionally recognized by any root-belief religious system nor does any religious canon offer sanctification, no matter which religion one should choose. Gays can gain civil partnerships until doomsday, however, the actual institution of Gay marriage will probably never gain traction as being considered ordinary among the general population, despite the fact that this is really the thing that Gays seem to mostly want.
The real question is what will our children think?
To the Gays, my take is simply do what you want, but don't ask me or soicietyto sanctify it as equal, and hallowed, because it simply isn't, nor will it ever be, but I will always pretend that I can't tell the difference...despite my inward thoughts to the contrary, and isn't that ultimately what Gays want, anyway? Next up is a story about what our "first gay president" actually wants--Hey! I didn't coin that phrase, it actually came from NewsWeak, so....moving on:
Charles Krauthammer Stuns Fox Panel: Obama Loses Gun Control Issue but Still Wants the Cash (YouTube)
“All he wants now is the money,” Krauthammer stated as the panel sat there in stunned silence.
“You don’t really mean that,” Chris Wallace slowly responds
“He’s lost on gun control" Krauthammer insists.
However, what Krauthammer and pretty much everyone else should remember, is that the gun control debate could and currently is going in much the same way as Obamacare went back in 2009.
The battle was initially lost by the Obama Regime, only to be resurrected by way of some incident that occurs somewhere, ostensibly a healthcare premium increase by a California insurance company in that case, and the the unholy thing was eventually smashed through Congress on the second attempt.
The US civil society cannot relax on gun control, ever, ladies and gentlemen. Nor can Obama, especially when it comes to to trying to complete both sentences and baser thought patterns outside of the presence of the ubiquitous teleprompter:
Big Trouble in Obamaville? Obama's Attorney General Fetish Starts Trouble with First Lady
Big trouble in Obamaville?
After Obama referred to California Attorney General Kamala Harris as, " By far, the Best looking Attorney General," First Lady Michelle Obama fired back in the following video by referring to herself as "a single mother":
She then corrected herself, but many at this point might be wondering about those rumored divorce proceedings that never quite made it through the system, back before Obama's run as Presidential Messiah.
So, is anything up between these two?
Who cares? But the overall story speaks volumes as to the possible signs of battle between America's first Totalitarian power couple. Speaking of "Signs"--check out this gem of a video which should make your next dream period, shall we say,...."interesting?"Creepy Obama Youtube Video Has US Teens Talking: Security Agent Undergoes Odd Visual Transformation
My teen daughter practically begged me to view the video, after telling me that all her friends were "creeped out" about it; so, I dutifully brought it up on the big screen and everyone watched.
It was quite strange, and it does fall under some of the more arcane issues I have personally studied over the past several years.
The agent's face does seem odd, even at first, but then it gets very odd, and with a video that does not appear to be retouched. The conversation then turned to a number of issues that dealt in a number of subjects, which she had numerous questions about, and in which I proffered a discourse of answers, some dealing in some of the more popular theories in evidence to this phenomenon.
Hey, when it comes to this Regime, we'll take it, especially if the younglings get as creeped out as most Conservatives have over the past 5 years.
Whatever it takes, and if you enjoyed this article you can find an Expanded article on this story in The Examiner. So, that's at least a represenatative cross-section of some of the crazy things going on and just in the past couple of weeks.

By Barry Secrest
You won't read about it very much in the media.
The Democrats are as quiet as church mice about it, financial gurus are looking on expectantly but with few if any historical research tools which will allow them to accurately proselytize on the eventual outcome. The Republicans, meanwhile, are so busy trying not to be Republicans that most of the more ground-shaking aspects of the thing have been completely buried in the shallow sands of the inner-beltway.
However, the gravity of the thing has already been immeasurably felt, the tides of fate altered, and the more sensitive US natives are uneasily stirring into some sort of reactive defense posture.
So what is it that's heading straight for America's well-being like some freakishly huge asteroid aimed squarely at 1/6th of the entire US economy? Ladies and Gentlemen, it's Obamacare, and it is even now swerving into final economic orbit before its impossibly deep impact.
The mainstream media, after battling mightily for state run healthcare when it was squeakily rolled out by the Obama Regime, has already begun loosening a shy trickle of stories and hesitant articles speaking of the nightmare to come, as if the dire symptoms had just been discovered, the stigmata-like etchings now only vaguely becoming resolved into focus.
Below are the few titles regarding the "Un-Affordable" Healthcare Act we have seen oozing out of America's Fourth Estate, thus far:
Really? But....the act was stitched together by a Haiwaiian genius, right?
Now how ironic is that for a law titled "Affordable Health Care Act" designed primarily to save everyone $2,500 per year?
And yet, the signs were always there, having been predicted well before the ideas became clear enough. The prophetic warnings, from this website alone and from years back, could stretch into volumes of Pandemic soothsaying. So, while our increasingly pathetic party apparatchiks, on the Republican side, continue to petulantly gaze at their navels like post-pubescent teens having an acne mitigation slumber-fest, the Republicans should be sounding the bells of "Repeal or else" and more loudly than ever.
We instead get responses like this from the Republican Moderated elites:
Or even this, which we will visit in earnest, in this article:
While the impact of Obamacare promises to be earth-shaking once this statist Leviathan wobbles to its feet, what we can already see, so far, easily falls under the gloomiest category of predictions at best. The one thing that the Republicans need to be talking about now, before even the second Leviathan rises up out of the sea, that being our deficit, is the fact that the monster that is Obamacare belongs fully and completely to one man and one increasingly pitiful party.
The Liberal Democrats.....
The Republican legislators, in this age of low-information voters, needs to swing into immediate action, by continually coming out on front of the cameras, and anything that has news service wire access, and repeatedly warn America of what it's in for very soon. In fact, not one Republican voted for the act, period, and the warnings were repeatedly screeched from the political right from the outset.
According to the Washing Post, Obamacare was passed when: "39 Democrats broke with their party and voted "no." One Republican initially voted yes but then voted "No" on the final November 7 vote."
But, despite a looming victory in the court of public opinion, unfortunately, it seems that the Republicans have other things on their minds, of late. Instead of pressing home the battle of why America should listen to the Conservative Party, both now and repeatedly in the future, especially after this debacle is fully realized, the Republicans are busy with other things of similar import.
Yes, indeed, believe it or not, the Republicans are on a soul-searching mission to find out who they are.....and no, I'm not kidding.
So, can someone please tell me how is it that an entire wing of a political party can actually lose its way to such a degree that this same party actually begins petulantly mewling to everyone around it "please tell us what's wrong with us?"
Lincoln's Republican party of limited government, individual liberty and self-determination, has now become the party of we're-not-really-sure... but...vote for us anyway, we'll do great things, that is, once we figure out who we are." Would you even hire such people as workers, much less make them your fearless leaders?
Truth be told, there is another rather pejorative word for this type of mindset, and it's directly related to a small, furry, domesticated mammal found in the phylum of Felidae and described, when found in groups, as a glaring or clowder. Once you discern the answer to that simple riddle, then you'll know whose running the Republican Party for 2013, which, therefore, makes the Republicans the prevailing caricature, now days, of virtually everything that is wrong with America.
But isn't it certainly America's ongoing spate of outrageous luck that the Party of something while loosely holding the Marx inspired Democrat-Socialists at bay is simultaneously suffering a crisis of identity? Especially when, what can only be described as a target rich environment of failure increasingly surrounds the Democrat party like a fog of endlessly fetid flatulence.
It's not just that the question of the Republican's raison de etre is being asked, for heaven's sake, but that the Republican leadership is even paying other Moderates in the party to come up with the party solution. Whoa! Predictable outcome, that.
Meanwhile, the other more erstwhile wing of the party looks on in bemused astonishment, already knowing the answer to the question, as having stated it soooo... many times before.
It was the study sponsored by the RNC , as instigated and later intensified our rather wayward GOP to begin soul-searching itself on why the party seems to be constantly losing the fight against an opposing party best described as a mad-dog grouping of authoritarian Collectivists, aka the Democrat Party of today.
The nexus of the report, according to the LA Times version, sounded much like an MSNBC talking point, a la this pointed study diatribe:
A great many Americans perceive Republicans as a bunch of narrow-minded, out-of-touch, homophobic, stuffy old white men who are interested only in the welfare of rich people. “Young voters are increasingly rolling their eyes at what the party represents, and many minorities wrongly think that Republicans do not like them or want them in the country,” the report says.
But then, here was an article which appeared in the Politico only a day after the November 2012 election:
So, to combat the party of the extreme Left that a large number of Americans seem to hate even worse than the Republican Party, the GOP leadership, in effect, ostensibly says we need to be more like the Democrat Party in order to beat them at being Democrats. Idea: why not just move over to the Democrat party and become one with the Borg, GOP leadership? I mean "Look," when you start searching around to find a new set of principles which will seemingly be more appealing to voters, then isn't it true that you then have no operative sense of defining principles, in the first place?
But, for argument's sake, let's say the Republican leadership embraces the opinion of their study commission, and begins competing with the Liberals for more Liberal voters. What happens to the Conservative base which makes up the Republican Party?
So, are the pinheads at the center of the GOP so in awe of the President that they have started their own honorary "Choom-gang" for Heaven's sake? Nothing would surprise any of us at this point.
And all of this, quite frankly, should workout just spectacularly, at least for El Magnifico, anyway. But the question that most Conservative Americans are increasingly asking, these days, is simply whose side are these guys in the GOP leadership, on anyway? Well, now we have our sort of misguided answer merely by the fact that they don't even know which side they're on, themselves.
The Democrats, resultantly and as could be expected since they were the ones who began asking this question in the first place, have been laughing hysterically at the GOP ever since and for damned good reason. I mean how, for Heaven's sake , could anyone not laugh?
What about "Here's Who We Are Not"
Instead of a concerted Republican effort on finding ways to sort of identify with and compete for the extraordinarily low-information threshold of the Liberal Democrat consortium, the GOP should be focusing on the Libertarian portion of the Conservative American electorate. In effect, the Republicans need to be explaining who we are not rather than who we are, especially with the impending derailment which is swiftly headed towards the Democrat party due to error after error. Think of it as a sort of intellectual facelift for the atypical American voter.
In fact, here are just a few out of many possible examples of who both Conservatives and Libertarians are certainly not, as contrasted by who the Democrats and Liberals of today and who they obviously are:
Federal Agents Takeover: Obama Signs Executive Order Seeking to Nationalize Elections »
First, Conservatives do not believe in centralization of election power. Republicans should make it clear that elections belong to the states, period. Anything else is an exercise of absolute power and the abuse of same which is a thing Republicans historically despise.
The political Right does not believe in centralized power-elections.
Obama to Unconstitutionally Override States' Obamacare Nullification Efforts »
Here and once again, federal power should not seek to gather power by meddling with states which resent such micro-managing power-grabbing. If states choose not to avail themselves of Obamacare, then they should be left to their own devices. Populations will either punish or reward the states in turn with regard to their decision. A truly limited government would never seek a crippling one-size-fits-all solution, nor would anyone truly within the right-wing of American politics.
The political Right does not believe in centralized Totalitarian healthcare schemes.
Using manufactured, environmentalized Marxism to achieve a tax end, to include a Draconian regulatory outcome based upon mischaracterized natural climactic cycles, is not something the Republican Party believes in. The scientific data is simply not present, as indicated by the above headline. If there has been no global warming over past twenty years, ladies and gentlemen, then where and why did all the climate histrionics begin in the first place? A rhetorical question, to be sure.
The political Right does not believe in outcome based environmental marxism
The Litmus Test and Civil War in America: Who Will Shoot Americans? (Youtube) »
Would the party of the US Constitution seek to ostracize military leadership on the basis of whether or not the Constitution should be strictly followed? The Republican Party should make it very clear that we believe in the US Constitution and will support it to the death, as do our soldiers. However the reports coming out from our military members speak to something far more insidious emanating from the current regime in power, as in asking top military leaders if they would fire on Americans. Not true, you say? Think again.....
The political Right does not believe in absolute government power
The Monsanto Protection Act Signed By Obama and Congress: Five Reasons to Be Terrified »
The true Republican party should have never signed off on this ridiculously unconstitutional law, and yet this measure was voted into effect by the House and the Senate. In fact, the above corporate protectionist act was authored by non other than a Liberal Democrat and co-authored by a very non-conservative Republican. Anti-constitutional protectionism is not what we, as Republicans, should ever allow.
The political Right does not believe in anti-Constitutional corporate protectionism nor cronyism.
Police State: Ex-Special Forces Commander Says President "Creating a Constabulatory Force" »
A federal military force used against civilians on American soil? This clearly abrogates a Federal law called the possee comitatus act which was written and passed just after the civil war. Yet there have been a large number of stories, in very recent years, which speaks to an elite civilian force as proposed by Obama and operated by FEMA under the Department of Homeland Security, which ostensibly seeks to circumvent this powerful act which even Bush tried to circumvent.
The political Right does not believe in a powerful military being used against US civilians.
The Republicans have always been known as the fiscally Conservative party, and this hasn't changed, or has it? More and more, the GOP of today has sought a stance of being less rigidly opposed to Obama's tax and spend chicanery, this despite the US Congress' historical function of being the chamber that holds the purse-strings of the US government and despite a debt which has become almost impossible to overcome by any traditional means. Although the US people have opted to keep a Congress of opposition in place and against Obama's penchant for spending, Boehner's congress seems almost apologetic when opposing the President, despite the fact that both were re-elected back into power. Does the people's vote, by fiat, only figure in one particular branch of the government? We, as Conservatives, certainly do not think so.
The political Right does not believe in Progressive Keynesianism and massive deficit spending.
So, who knew that a like-minded grouping of people the size of Rush Limbaugh's audience could change the course of a nation's collective morays? Rush fans, take notes on this post, because this is what we've been seeing from the powerful gay coalition. It's not that Republicans hate or even dislike Gays, to Conservatives it's a lifestyle choice for some and apparently a coitus imperative for others, and opinions runs the gamut from there. But how does this concern American government as a whole. It shouldn't and it's just that simple. This is what the Republicans should stand for.
The political Right does not believe in a governmental role pertaining to marriage.
By the way, each of these examples were major news items published only in the last 10 days, as of this writing.
The Republicans, with a special nod to Conservatism, should never be parlaying votes by way of pandering to certain groups according to skin color, which is what is being sold to the party as a whole, by the very moderate branch of the party. this ultimately results in a form of racism, while completely disallowing the rights of an individual as opposed to the group.
But what about that other Leviathan, aside from Obamacare, as created by the Democrat party?
The massive US deficit is already being dealt with by one supposed ally and several other major economic players and trading partners. In fact, the story appeared mostly overseas and in few if any US media outlets, other than Catholic online. But it is a story which started back in 2010 with the Chinese and Russians removing the US dollar as an exchange currency between the two nations. This time, it was just announced that the nations of China and Australia have also removed the US dollar as an exchange currency between the two nations.
One way that the US is able to cover its massive printing of money, is by the fact that the US dollar is the official world reserve currency. As the dollar looses trading partners, it also gradually looses demand and thereby some portion of its value. So, what happens when more and more nations decide to drop the inflationary dollar as the world's reserve currency?
Maybe that's where the much talked about US economic collapse begins, and if that is indeed so, then it can also be said to be slowly beginning right about now. Unfortunately, if the collapse did come to pass, then the Republicans could make an all powerful case as to Democratic ownership of a US collapse, in addition to a healthcare collapse.
The only problem is, at that particular point, will it really matter?
