Senator Dianne Feinstein informs the world that Mossad boss Tamir Pardo is secretly in DC talking about Israel hitting Iran

It wasn't a ‘faux pas’.

.
Pardo’s visit, which would usually be conducted in secret, was revealed by US Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, 78, who made the faux pax at committee hearing.   The hearing was broadcast live by US television.
Feinstein said she had spoken with Pardo, who also met the CIA director David Petraeus, adding that the Mossad chief had mentioned the possibility of unilateral Israeli action against Iran.

Mossad director Tamir Pardo is in Washington for talks about a possible attack on Iran's nuclear installations, Israel's Channel 2 reported on Tuesday.
Pardo's visit, which would normally be conducted in secret, was revealed by US Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, 78, who made the faux pax at committee hearing.
The hearing was being broadcast live by US television.
Feinstein said she had spoken with Pardo, who also met with CIA director David Petraeus, adding that the Mossad chief had mentioned the possibility of unilateral Israeli action against Iran.
Her fellow Democrat, US President Barack Obama, opposes a strike on Tehran’s nuclear facilities – favoring sanctions instead.
Israeli officials have sent conflicting messages about the option of pre-emptive military strikes on Iran's nuclear facilities.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has called for stronger sanctions on Iran saying Tehran's economy is wobbling, but last week expressed skepticism about the efficacy of sanctions at a Defense and Foreign Affairs committee meeting in the Knesset.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak has warned that the window for effective military action against Iran's nuclear program is rapidly closing.
He has also cautioned Israeli's against over-estimating Iran's ability to strike back should Israel launch an attack on Tehran's nuclear program.
President Shimon Peres on Tuesday said "no option should be excluded against theprogram of Iran, which seeks to acquire weapons of mass destruction."
"The regime of the ayatollahs is the most corrupt in the world, from a moral point of view," Peres added.
Israel, The United States, other Western governments, and Gulf Arab states accuse Iran of seeking an atomic weapons - which Tehran has always denied.
An IAEA report published late last year said Iran had sought - and continues to seek - nuclear technologies that have solely military applications. IAEA inspectors are currently in Tehran demanding more information on its nuclear program.
Israeli leaders maintain a nuclear-armed Iran - whose leaders have called for Israel's destruction calling it "a one bomb state" - would pose an existential threat to the Jewish state.
Some Israeli media outlets reported in October last year that the option of pre-emptive air strikes on Iran was opposed by the country's intelligence services, but favored by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak.
Media critics say the flurry of reports on a potential strike were a move by left-wing media personalities to leak Israel's plans and render a strike impossible.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio to Release His Investigation on Barack Obama - Something the FBI Should Have Done Four Years Ago

    By Jerome Corsi - World Net Daily 

    Maverick Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio says his "Cold Case Posse" investigating Barack Obama's presidential eligibility will release a preliminary report in February of its findings, which he expects to be "controversial."
    Arpaio's investigative team has amassed hundreds of pages of documentation and taken testimony from dozens of experts in preparation for a final phase of field investigation
    On Tuesday, Arpaio posted on his Facebook page a reference to a Globe Magazine report citing inside sources in the White House who say Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, are in "a panic" over the Maricopa County investigation.
    The reaction to Arpaio's posting indicates public interest in the probe is high, despite relatively little coverage by establishment media.
    Since Tuesday, Arpaio's Facebook posting has received more than 7,900 "like this" clicks from readers, 780 shares and over 1,700 comments.
    Arpaio also continues to receive messages of a different sort, with numerous death threats arriving at his office for his decision to investigate Obama's eligibility.
    "I plan to kill Joe Arpaio first," read one particularly ominous death threat. "He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out. I promise you this -- Arpaio won't **** with Obama."
    Maricopa County Deputy Chief David Trombi told WND that all death threats are being thoroughly investigated, with the intent to hold the culprits legally responsible for their actions.
    "We can't take the risk of ignoring a threat, regardless how wild or crazy the threat may appear," Trombi said.
    Arpaio, who has built a national reputation as a tough enforcer of Arizona's immigration laws, is no stranger to death threats.
    "The threats regarding the Obama investigation may set a new standard for partisanship, but they are nothing new," Trombi said. "Four separate Mexican drug cartels have placed bounties totaling $4 million on his head. That's about as serious as you can get, and the sheriff has had to live with this for years."
    Arpaio, nevertheless, is determined to bring the Obama investigation to a successful conclusion.
    "The American people deserve to know the truth about Obama," Arpaio said. "We are a major law enforcement agency -- one of the largest in the nation -- and we have at our disposal investigative tools not generally available, even to the top private investigator in the country. We don't plan to stop until we discover the truth."

    Now Hillary and her State Department are Sending Arms to Drug Cartels

    From The Obama File
    Bob Owens is reporting that Phil Jordan, a former CIA operative and one-time leader of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center, claims that the Obama administration is running guns to the violent Zetas cartel through the direct commercial sale of military grade weapons:
    Jordan, who served as director of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center in 1995, said the Zetas have shipped large amounts of weapons purchased in the Dallas area through El Paso.

    Obama Lies to the Latino Community

    By Nicholas Contompasis
    Both Republicans and Democrats have looked the other way while cheap labor streamed over our Southern border from Mexico for decades. But not, until the Obama Administration decided to send thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious which resulted in tens of thousands of deaths on both sides of border, did we start to take notice of the threat this lack of border control had on our country.
    This illegal act by the Obama Administration has now demonized all who pass over our border thus hurting any future chance of a supervised amnesty.
    President Obama is to blame for this setback the Hispanic community is now experiencing not Republicans and for that matter not Democrats for the most part. It all lays at the feet of two racist men Barack Obama and Eric Holder. Being both black men, could it not be said that they see the Latino vote as a direct threat to their black minority in America and that this is their attempt to further suppress the growing wave of Latinos streaming into our country? Furthermore, could it not be said that all the promises that Obama makes to the Hispanic community are just lies to keep them wanting? You decide!!!

    California, New York, Illinois Are Destroying the American Dream


    By Nicholas Contompasis
    The three states that are sinking America are California, New York and Illinois. These three states are the tail that now wags the dog. They are the hole in our bucket.
    With 23% of the U.S. population enslaved by the Liberal Socialist-Democrat party, they should look towards Europe tomorrow morning when the member states sign away their sovereignty to a centralized government in Brussels. The weaker less industrialized nations of the Eurozone are forcing, due to their irresponsible financial dealings, all members to sign on to a centralized budgeting system that will oversee each country's spending and revenue collection, thus taking away a country's authority to tax and spend.
    Good or bad this harsh tasting medicine won't go down well in the weaker bankrupt countries.
    The three Democrat governors of California, New York and Illinois, their five out of six Liberal Democrat Senators, along with the 63 Liberal Democrats out of 111 Congressmen that represent these states, will be watching their state's future tomorrow. Do they care? Of course not; they're out for themselves and nothing more. But their actions will eventually force other more fiscally responsible states to lose their independence.
    Unless these three states mend their ways, they risk losing their states' rights and the states' rights of all states in our country.
    This would end the decentralized governing system our country has enjoyed for over 250 years. This layering of governance, historians have said, is what has kept our country together for as long as it has.

    America You Think You Know What's Going On With the Obama Administration But You Have No Idea!!!

    WALL STREET INSIDER: “California”
    by Ulsterman on January 24, 2012

    A longtime Wall Street Insider details the still very much alive and kicking Shorebank, the growing Solyndra scandal, and the globalization goals of the Obama White House.

    UM:  You indicated three specific things you wanted to discuss today – my “homework” as you called it regarding the walk around 19th and G in Washington DC, my recent interview with -Name Deleted- , and what you called the dismantling of the United States’ economy and military.  Is that accurate?


    WSI:  Yes – that is correct.  Did you enjoy the visit to D.C.?  The hotel?
    UM:  It was…yes…thank you.  The hotel was quite nice.
    WSI:  And the walk?  19th and G?
    UM:  Not so much.
    WSI:  So much?
    UM:  Maybe I was expecting…more…your tone was pretty ominous when you told me I needed to go take a look.  So…perhaps my expectations were a bit unrealistic.
    WSI:  Ah…you were expecting…something else?
    UM:  Yeah – sure.  Like I said…your tone was rather…dramatic.
    WSI:  And you didn’t find the environment there equally dramatic?
    UM: No.
    The buildings – the IMF, the World Bank…they were impressive.  No doubt.  Massive-massive buildings.
    WSI:  Massive – yes.  And you don’t even get it all from the street you know.
    UM:  No?
    WSI:  Nearly a third of it is underground I believe.  Was told that some time ago…
    In fact, if I recall, if you take the square footage of the World Bank and both IMF buildings…they are larger than the White House, the Capitol building, the State Department, and the Treasury buildings combined.
    UM:  Really? That doesn’t seem possible.
    WSI:  It does give one pause, does it not?  Why those two entities – which are in fact simply different appendages from a shared entity…why…or how, the IMF and World Bank dwarf those symbols of the American Republic.  And the proximity upon which  they loom just down the road from the cradle of this nation’s democracy.  Those buildings represent an entire nation within a nation if you will…and a clear and quite present danger to the unique and critical ideal  of a self-sustaining Unites States.  An ideal that has been systematically bargained away and given over to the vultures of globalism.

    Africa is Imploding

    Its all spinning out of Control Belated Happy New Year @NCONTOMPASIS
    Jan 22, 8:28 PM via web

    This is a communique I just received from a friend in Kenya who is an expert oil analyst and fund manager who is seen quite often on Aljazeera English around the world.
    Kenya is under great pressure from radical Islamic terrorists who are now killing Christians and burning churches.
    As Aly my friend stated "it's all spinning out of control." he doesn't normally speak so candid which leads me to worry more about him and the region.
    The region's stability is now being knocked off it's pedestal with Uganda and Somalia's wars now effecting Kenya.
    The interesting part of what's happening in eastern Africa is that it's purely a religious war, Christian vs Muslim.
    Churches are being burned and Christians are kidnapped and blown up daily. As this conflict continues to grow I wonder if President Obama will dedicate troops and resources to help prevent a genocide of Christians in the region?
    With the northern rim of Africa now in turmoil it won't take much to set most of the continent into a full fledge religious war.

    How Our Members of Congress Become Rich After Taking Office

    By Nicholas Contompasis

    Are you mad at Congress and the President? Well, get ready to get even madder!
    As you know, 60 Minutes last month exposed the likes of Nancy Pelosi and other Congressmen for their use of insider information to pad their pockets. You know that it's legal for them to trade on this information while you and Martha Stewart must go to jail for doing the same. Initially there was outrage in the country, but as usual most are more worried about feeding the family than hanging Congressmen, so far.
    After reading more about how this Congressional insider trading works there seem to be two common denominators, the husband or wife and the lawyer!!!
    As Steve Kroft illustrated on national TV, there has been the selling of this insider information. He failed to be more specific. We can only speculate that there's more to come once they have additional proof that Congressmen are selling Congressional information to hedge funds (George Soros, etc).
    This is where it gets tricky. If you've noticed, whenever Congressmen are called out publicly about such manipulations, the spouse is mentioned. Example, Senator X has a net worth of $XXX and their spouse's net worth is $XXXXXXXX. Get my point?
    It appears that many marriages in Congress are simply business arrangements to help deflect the thievery that's going on. Simply stated, the spouse takes the privileged congressional information and runs with it. First to their own account where they obtain a position and then sell it to eager hedge fund managers who drive the price up by obtaining positions in their managed portfolios.
    In California Senator Feinstein and Congressman Pelosi are perfect examples of this practice with spouses worth substantially more than the elected spouse.
    After watching Pelosi's act on camera, she's no Warren Buffett, yet her combined family net worth is in the hundreds of millions of dollars and Feinstein's now surpassing a billion dollars.
    The last part of this trilogy of corruption are the "lawyers."  The lawyers are the communication network that transfers this information from one interested party to another. Confidentiality laws protect the lawyers and their clients so no one can be forced to testify unless someone gets a conscience.
    But as usual the press and the American people are a day late and a dollar short as hedge funds and Congressmen cover up their tracks. Congress in their endless need for more cash passed the Dodd-Frank Bill that was to stop all of this or at least give authorities the authority to dig deeper into their dealings with Congress.
    Unfortunately, our government knowingly left open a back door for hedge funds to be exempt from the new law.
    By allowing hedge funds to form "family offices" which is just another name for hedge fund, they escape the entire mess that is Dodd-Frank.
    This explains why George Soros and many other funds closed and reopened under "family offices." This little maneuver stopped any investigation into their dealings with the Congressmen, the Obama Administration, Prince al-Walled and others. Case closed!!!
    Of course, the mainstream media are not looking into this. That's why it was no surprise when 60 Minutes mentioned the practice of selling privileged Congressional information, but fell short of reveling more. They must have realized they had opened a hornet nest. A hornet nest that reaches all the way to the White House and President Obama's connections with George Soros and other despots.

    The Unemployment Rate is Rigged and Here's How Obama is Doing It

    By Nicholas Contompasis

    A few months ago a little known announcement 2011-64 by the Internal Revenue Service forced employers to classify subcontractors as employees.
    I'm curious why the media hasn't picked up on this new artificial way of increasing employment numbers and the lowering of the unemployment rate.
    As most know, there are thousands of small businesses and thousands of Liberal 501-C3 nonprofits (moveOn.org, ACORN, Save the Whale, etc.)in America with easily millions of subcontractors working at these businesses and individual causes. To now count these once subcontractors as employees and to add them in the employment census as new hires is fixing the numbers. These are jobs that were once independent but are now viewed as new hires. This is not real job creation.
    Example, the state of California is imposing massive penalties, starting at $5,000 per employee, for classifying an employee as an independent.
    In the past we've seen the conduct of many nonprofits, and for them to add people that don't exist is expected.
    And let's not forget that we are in an election year where hundreds of nonprofits are gathering low paid volunteers to reelect the President. Are the thousands of Obama supporters now going to be counted as new hires? I think you know the answer to that.

    These Are Four Videos That Could Change Your Way of Thinking About the World and Your Government

    By Nicholas Contompasis

    Editors’ note:  The world is at this moment witnessing a horrific phenomenon: Islamists coming to power throughout the Middle East under the guise of a supposed “Arab Spring” -- while Barack Obama is facilitating the entire process. Indeed, Obama is reaching his hand out in solidarity to Islamists and enabling their solidification of power throughout the region.  While displaying a disastrous weakness with Iran and allowing the Mullahs to move ahead aggressively with their nuclear weapon program, the Obama administration is helping the Muslim Brotherhood take over Egypt and the Taliban regain power in Afghanistan.
    In these tragic and disturbing circumstances, the editors of Frontpage felt it timely and relevant to rerun the video of Frontpage editor Jamie Glazov’s interview with Erick Stakelbeck on CBN News in May 2009, in which he discussed his book “United in Hate," which crystallizes why the Left is in league with our deadly jihadi enemies.  The interview explains precisely why a leftist like Obama is pursuing a disastrous foreign policy that is helping Islamists gain and consolidate power throughout the Middle East.  Below is the first part of the two part interview.  We will run the second part in our next issue. 
    Jamie Glazov is Frontpage Magazine's editor.  He holds a Ph.D. in History with a specialty in Russian, U.S. and Canadian foreign policy.  He is the author of the critically acclaimed and best-selling, “United in Hate."  His new book is Showdown With Evil.

    Details of Obama's Letter to Surrender the Strait of Hormuz to Iran Leaked Today

    TEHRAN, Jan. 18 (MNA) -- A number of Iranian officials have released the details of the letter that Barack Obama recently sent to Tehran.
    The New York Times, citing U.S. government officials, wrote on January 12 that the Obama administration had sent a message to Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei warning that closing the Strait of Hormuz is a "red line" that would provoke a response by the United States.
    Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Ramin Mehmanparast said on January 15 that U.S. officials had sent a message on the Strait of Hormuz to the Islamic Republic through three officials, noting, "Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, delivered a letter to Mohammad Khazaii, the Islamic Republic of Iran's ambassador (to the UN).  The Swiss ambassador to Tehran (Livia Leu Agosti) also conveyed the message, and Jalal Talabani, the Iraqi president, conveyed the message to officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran as well."
    Obama has called for negotiations MP Ali Motahhari said on Wednesday, "In the letter, it has been stated that 'closing the Strait of Hormuz is our red line' and they have requested direct negotiations."
    "In the letter, Obama has announced readiness for negotiation and the resolution of mutual disagreements," he added.
    He went on to say that Obama uttered threats in the first part of the letter and talked about friendship and negotiation in the second part.
    Obama says U.S. will not take hostile action against Iran.
    MP Hojjatoleslam Hossein Ebrahimi said on Wednesday, "Obama's letter has several parts.  Part of it is about this, (namely) that using international waterways is the right of all countries and all should benefit from them.  And in this letter, he has described it as the United States' red line."
    "In the letter, Obama has mentioned cooperation and negotiation based on the interests of the two countries," Ebrahimi, who is the deputy chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, told the Nasimonline news website.
    "He has stated in the letter that they will not take any hostile action against the Islamic Republic of Iran," he added.
    Ebrahimi also said, "This is not the first time that Obama has sent a message and letter to the Islamic Republic of Iran.  He has repeatedly spoken in a soft tone about the Islamic Republic of Iran, but, in practice, he has not acted accordingly."
    "Obama's letter indicates that the United States has become afraid of the Islamic Republic of Iran's might and has realized the point that an arrogant spirit is of no use, and therefore, he has softened his tone when speaking about the Islamic Republic of Iran," he stated.
    He added, "The important issue is that without the Islamic Republic of Iran's permission, no country can benefit from the Persian Gulf."
    Iran responsible for maintaining security of Persian Gulf Expediency Council Secretary Mohsen Rezaii also commented on the letter on Wednesday, saying, "Mr. Obama has written a cunning letter and intended to claim that the U.S. is responsible for maintaining the security of the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, while Iran itself is responsible for maintaining the security of this region."
    "We maintain the security of the region with the help of regional countries," he said, adding, "There is no need for the presence of extra-regional forces to maintain the security of this region, and we believe that the presence of the United States and Britain mostly creates insecurity."
    If they "feel compassion" for regional countries and want to help them enhance security in the region, "I advise them to leave the region," Rezaii stated.
     

    Breaking News - Bombshell Allegations Against Obama

    By Anthony Martin - January 19, 2012
    According to a person who is described as a long-time Democratic Party operative and White House insider, a series of bombshell allegations have been made against Barack Obama revolving around possible murder, addiction, and atheism.
    The allegations were made yesterday in an interview conducted by a reporter who works for a major news organization and posts interviews with the insider under the anonymous pen-name 'Ulsterman.'
    Last year Ulsterman made headlines when he first began to publish the interviews with the insider, who claimed that traditional Democrats in the mold of Doug Shoen, Pat Caddell, and James Carville are alarmed over the direction Obama is taking the country and the damage he is doing to the Democratic Party.
    The insider correctly predicted the exit of a series of top Obama advisers and a gargantuan scandal of historic proportions that would engulf the White House. Later, the story broke that the Administration had engaged in a gun smuggling scheme in Mexico in order to create false statistics 'proving' that 90% of the guns used by drug cartels come from the U.S. and thus, 'proving' that drastic new gun control laws are needed.
    Critics have claimed that 'Ulsterman' is a hoax and that the 'insider' is made up. To back up their claims they have pointed to the fact that some of the predictions made in the interviews did not pan out and that thus far there is no independent corroborating evidence to prove that the insider's assertions are correct.
    Nonetheless, such was the case when Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein first began to unravel the massive corruption inherent in the Nixon Administration. Their 'White House insider' was named 'Deep Throat.' Eventually the information uncovered by the two was considered so vital to the discovery of the Watergate scandal that a book and a movie came out about the entire thing entitled, All the President's Men. 
    Ulsterman's latest allegations revolve around the 2008 Presidential campaign. The insider states unequivocally that Obama is an atheist and that everyone around him knew it from the beginning. His involvement in the church of the Reverend Jeremiah 'G-D Amerikkka' Wright in Chicago for over 20 years was merely part of his work as a community organizer. In the African American community, having a connection with a large black church is key to getting to know the movers and shakers in that community.
    The insider also claims that religion is a big joke among Obama's inner circle, including Barack himself, Michelle Obama, Valerie Jarrett, and others.
    In addition, the insider implies that Obama is an addict--a severe addict. He points to an incident during the 2008 campaign, just before the Democratic National Convention, in which Obama was taken into a back room alone by unnamed aides due to the fact that he appeared disoriented, weak, and shaken. A half-hour later he emerged fully conscious and aware, engaged, and at the top of his game.
    What happened in that room to Obama that can reasonably account for such a dramatic turnaround?

    According to Ulsterman, the insider claims that very few persons know what happened, and that information was tightly guarded. One person, however, somehow got the information, a young Democratic operative on the West Coast, who mysteriously wound up dead of 'natural causes.' No investigation was conducted into the death.
    The full interview is available in two parts at The Ulsterman Report here and here, and contains further bombshell allegations concerning Bill and Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party, nebulous, shadowy figures of enormous influence to the Clintons and Obama, and information on Ron Paul and how these shadowy figures would like to use the Texas Congressman to insure Obama's reelection.

    Obama Speeds Up Visa's For Visitors - Why Now?

    By Nicholas Contompasis

    Today January 19th 2012 President Obama announced that he wants to speed up visa processing for people that want to visit the U.S.
    This should scare the hell out of every American. He say's it's to increase tourism in America, but we know better, don't we?
    With the flow of Mexicans and Central Americans slowing, due to our economic depression, the President is looking to grow his fraudulent voter rolls with these new visitors. As you may have noticed since Obama took office, there seems to be many in this country who don't belong here. These people come here to visit and never leave. They are instructed to hook up with immigration lawyers who hook them up with political operatives that register them as new voters who will vote the way they're told.
    This action by the President shows how desperate he is to gain votes for the November election. Reaching to this level of desperation publicly should send warning signs to Republicans that this President will stop at nothing to be reelected.

    The New Conservative Governor of the State of New York Andrew Cuomo

    By Nicholas Contompasis

    Stop the presses! Pretty soon, that term will be met with clueless expressions. But, I digress. In a very quiet way the Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo, the young'n of Mario is acting more like a conservative Republican than the Liberal Democrat he is.
    Today he announced a new plan for newly hired state employees. He shockingly has adopted a retirement plan for these new people straight out of the Conservative handbook. His plan is to offer new hires an option of a 401-k (employee contribution retirement plan) or a very scaled down pension plan.
    As a conservative that has been pushing this idea for decades, it's amazing to finally see a Democrat come to his senses. Although this is a small step, it still shows some flexibility in Mr. Cuomo's politics. Unlike our President, who is more of an ideologue and not willing to bend proving that he's not very American nor political, more dictatorial.
    Of course, Conservatives have pushed this idea on a grander scale by suggesting we allow all Americans this duel option, Social Security or their own expanded retirement option, similar to a 401-k.
    I feel it would be wise at this juncture in the electoral process, since the more moderate of Democrats are starting to experiment with good old common horse sense, that our Presidential candidates float this trial ballon again. And when the far Left loons start screaming, we can always point to the new Conservative Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo.

    Just in From the Obama File

    Jerome Corsi says Charles Ortel is a managing partner with Newport Value Partners, LLC in New York City.  Newport, established in 2007, provides value-added research to executives and investment firms.
    An analysis by highly regarded Wall Street financial analyst Charles K. Ortel predicts weak economic growth and disappointing private investment returns in the U.S. economy during 2012 and for the foreseeable future.
    What is startling about Ortel’s economic analysis is the rapidity with which his dire economic and political forecasts are being realized on the front pages of newspapers worldwide.
    On Jan. 13 the credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s downgraded nine eurozone countries, including France and Austria, with the Financial Times in London reporting in words Ortel himself could have crafted that the downgrade “reignited fears about the fiscal sustainability of the eurozone.”
    Coming economic violence

    Romney - Obama - Fact

    By Nicholas Contompasis

    Both Mr. Romney and Mr. Obama are part of the 1%. Mr. Romney's wealth was earned in the private sector which is proof that he has the ability to turn the country's economy around.
    In contrast to Mr. Romney, the President's wealth is from the laundering of your tax dollars into his campaign contributions along with ransoms paid by the private sector as he continues to hold them hostage!
    Simply stated, Mr. Obama's wealth increases from his job destroying economic policies, while Mr. Romney's wealth increases from the job generating capitalist private sector most have been a part of for decades.
    As a voter, who would you vote for, especially if you're out of work or losing your home?

    An Internet Blackout Over SOPA and PIPA

    As of midnight, Wikipedia is shut down for 24 hours, and hundreds of other popular websites have gone dark right along with it. They are standing together in protest of two controversial pieces of legislation that threaten Internet security and undermine the freedom of speech all in an effort to crack down on online "piracy" -- the illegal distribution of copyrighted material.

    Hollywood, the music industry, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have gone to bat on behalf of the proposed laws on the grounds that they will help protect valuable copyrighted property. And while the goal is laudable, the ends don't justify the means. The Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act have far-reaching consequences for the Internet's infrastructure, individual liberties, and innovation in the digital age.

    Under the laws, upon a court order, third-party companies and websites would be forced to crack down on rogue websites -- and even ones that unwittingly host or link to material that may violate copyrights or trademarks, whether or not they have knowledge of the violation. Internet service providers would be required to block Internet addresses of offending sites -- a measure that Internet engineers warn could threaten Internet security. Search engines would be prohibited from including pirate sites in search results, a requirement that goes well beyond current law and may, in fact, violate the First Amendment. Heritage's James Gattuso and Paul Rosenzweig explain ramifications:
    [L]imits on speech here are almost certain to be extended to other cases. If links to pirate sites are banned, why not links to sites disseminating national security secrets? Or sites "facilitating" violence by propagating extreme political positions? Moreover, other countries that have pursued content controls of their own, such as China, may be encouraged by steps in the U.S. to limit content.

    It is concerns like these that have caused a firestorm in the online world, leading Wikipedia to declare that the laws "would be devastating to the free and open web" and prompting Google to campaign against the laws on its highly trafficked search engine. Meanwhile, PC Magazine reports that co-founders of top tech firms like Twitter, Google, Yahoo, and eBay wrote an open letter opposing the laws, arguing that they would undermine the "regulatory climate that promotes entrepreneurship, innovation, the creation of content and free expression online."

    Here's why: Under the laws, websites like Facebook, with its hundreds of millions of users, or YouTube, where 48 hours of video are uploaded every minute, would now be accountable for all content posted on their sites. As a result, websites would be discouraged from engaging in speech or from providing a forum where others can do the same. That, in turn, will stifle innovation--the lifeblood of the economy. One study showed that among 200 venture capitalists and angel investors, almost all would stop funding digital media intermediaries if these laws are enacted.

    Setting aside the burden the laws would impose on the freedom of speech and innovation, they don't even make practical sense. Trying to block content online is tantamount to blocking the Mississippi River with a two-by-four. It can't be done. Countries like Iran routinely censor content, yet information still flows through--oftentimes with the help of the United States. This attempt to crack down on pirated material is a futile effort by industries that are suffering at the hands of a technology that has surpassed it, much like when Hollywood was up in arms over VCRs in the 1980s and when the music industry threw a fit over MP3 players in the late 1990s.

    The Internet is the greatest engine for free speech and innovation ever known to humankind. Certainly its power can be used for good as well as bad, but censoring content, jeopardizing the security of the Internet, and stifling innovation is not the answer for protecting intellectual property rights.

    U.S. Department of Justice Serves as Lap-dog for the Muslim Brotherhood

    Documents recently released by the Department of Justice in response to a Freedom of Information Act request show members of groups linked to the radical Muslim Brotherhood treating agency officials like “errand boys” who fulfill their every request, and setting them up to perform “gofer” duties, says researcher and activist Pamela Geller.
    “In a rational society, these Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups would be marginalized,” Geller told WND. “Instead, the DOJ is playing ‘stepin fetchit’ for them. They’re using the DOJ as their legal arm.”
    Founded in Egypt in response to the fall of the Ottoman-Turkish Empire at the end of World War I, the Muslim Brotherhood has declared it aims to destroy Western Civilization from within in an effort ultimately to bring about Islam’s rule over the world.
    Geller is the publisher of AtlasShrugs.com and the author of the WND Books title “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance” and “The Post American Presidency: The Obama’s Administration’s war on America,” published by Simon Schuster.
    Geller explained that she filed the request about one year ago, asking for “records relating to the meeting of the ‘Monthly Outreach Meeting’ with Muslim and Arab groups at the Civil Rights Division.”
    “The DOJ even takes lunch orders and picks up the tab, and in some cases asks them how much money they need for a little soiree they’re holding. It is astonishing,” she said, describing the documents.
    Geller said she immediately was struck by the sheer bulk of the material, with more than 14,000 documents showing nearly daily contact between the Justice Department and Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood groups.
    “One thing is clear,” she said, “the Muslim Brotherhood has fully infiltrated command and control at the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division.”
    Geller noted that a knowledgeable Justice Department affirmed that the sheer volume was remarkable, declaring there are “very few things in Civil Rights that would generate 14,000 pages of anything. It has got to be a treasure trove of information.”
    The emails showed a casual familiarity between members of groups such as the Islamic Society of North American, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and senior officials of the Department of Justice, all the way up to Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez.
    “They discuss lunch, vacations, job changes -- always with the Muslim Brotherhood groups pushing their narrative, even in these casual exchanges.”
    Even more striking, she said, “was the servile demeanor” of Civil Rights Division special counsel Eric Treene and “the demanding condescension of Muslim Brotherhood operatives.”
    Treene at one point asks Mohamed Elsanousi of ISNA to circulate among ISNA operatives an invitation to a DOJ seminar on Federal Laws Protecting Religious Freedom.
    The DOJ named ISNA, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and other key Muslim groups and figures as unindicted co-conspirators in a scheme to fund the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. Evidence in the case, the largest of its kind in American history, showed CAIR was created as a front for the Brotherhood and Hamas in the U.S.
    The DOJ holds “inter-agency meetings” with Muslim Brotherhood groups on a regular basis, Geller noted. The emails show Treene circulating issues to be discussed at the meetings that have been submitted by the Islamic groups
    For a May 10, 2010 meeting, for example, Treene sent out a memo regarding “concerns about increase in hate crimes following the Times Square Plot, in particular Jacksonville mosque bombing, Michigan mosque vandalism, and taxi driver assault in San Diego.”
    Another request was for update on the “status of March 2002 raids on Northern Virginia charities.”
    Another was regarding “questions about measures to prevent profiling in Times Square bombing investigation.”
    Geller commented that in response to a massive bomb attack plot in New York that would have dwarfed 9/11, the DOJ was circulating the recommendations of the Muslim Public Affairs Council.
    “The response is not how to defeat jihad,” she said. “Instead, Americans are attacked again with the false narrative of an ant-Muslim backlash.”
    In a Feb. 17, 2011, email, Treene sent ISNA’s Elsanousi the phone number of the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida, Pam Marsh, who, he says, “wants to do some interfaith outreach” in light of Florida Pastor Terry Jones’s “Put the Quran on Trial Day.”
    CAIR’s Julie Shearson wrote to Treene on Oct. 25, 2010: “We really appreciate your outreach to us.”
    Geller called the “depth and the breadth of the penetration is difficult to fathom until you see all of these documents going back and forth, and the players.” Geller said.
    Among the group are CAIR co-founder and director Nihad Awad, Suhail Khan  -- who accepted an award in 2000 from the now-imprisoned al-Qaida financier Abdurrahman Alamoudi - and the Muslim Guantanamo chaplain James Yee.
    Yee, along with three others, was charged with sedition, aiding the enemy, spying, espionage and failure to obey a general order.
    The charges later were dropped when Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller cited “national security concerns that would arise from the release of the evidence.”
    Yee, Geller noted, gave an interview on Syrian television in Arabic in which he repeated detainees’ lies of Quran abuse by the U.S. military.
    Awad, Khan, Yee and many others received a Sept. 8, 2011, letter from Perez touting all the Justice Department’s actions on behalf of Muslims, including a suit against the city of Lilburn, Ga., for resisting the expansion of a mosque and a friend-of-the-court brief calling for dismissal of a suit brought by Murfreesboro, Tenn., citizens against a mosque proposed by Islamic supremacists.
    The agenda of the Oct. 14, 2011, “Interagency Meeting” included “NYPD intelligence gathering,” “anti-Shariah legislation” and the Alex Odeh murder investigation.
    Odeh, the West Coast director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, was killed by a pipe bomb in 1985. The perpetrator has never been found, but the ADC claims that the Jews were responsible. Failure to find a suspect, the group contends, is evidence that the Justice Department discriminates against “Palestinians.”
    Muslim groups repeatedly have pressed the Justice Department to reopen the case to show that Muslims are not the only ones who commit acts of terror, Geller pointed out.
    “So here we have Islamic supremacist groups using the DOJ to go after Jews,” she said, and the “servile” Treene “compliantly put this matter on the agenda of one of his many meetings to hear the demands of Muslim groups.”
    Geller said here findings are just the tip of the iceberg.
    “Freedom lovers need to demand that our government cut off all ties with Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood groups,” she said. “We need to demand of our elected officials that this foolish and destructive collaboration cease.”

    Obama's Plan to Steal the 2012 Election No Matter What the Vote Is!!!

    From the Obama File

    Or, why Eric Holder will remain in office until 2013 at least.

    DrJohn says a pair of articles from the Washington Times make clear that the White House has a plan for the 2012 election, and that is to guarantee victory for Obama regardless of the outcome of the vote.  A large part of it depends on Eric Holder and his continual bastardization of the law.

    The first comes from Robert Knight and his account of why democrats despise voter id laws:

    Assistant AG Thomas Perez, the same official who terminated the Black Panther voter intimidation case, ordered South Carolina to stop enforcing its voter photo ID law.  South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson explained precisely why the law is necessary:

    The state Department of Motor Vehicles audited a state Election Commission report that said 239,333 people were registered to vote but had no photo ID.  The DMV found that 37,000 were deceased, more than 90,000 had moved to other states, and others had names not matched to IDs.  That left only 27,000 people registered without a photo ID, but who could vote by signing an affidavit as to their identity.

    Contrary to left wing claims, requiring photo ID has not been shown to suppress voter ID:

    A bipartisan Commission on Federal Election Reform in 2005 chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former U.S. Secretary of State James A. Baker III found no evidence that requiring photo IDs would suppress the minority vote.  The panel recommended a national photo ID system and a campaign to register voters.

    The second article comes from Jeffrey Kuhner.  Against the backdrop of the Carter/Baker report (of which Holder appears to be completely ignorant) Eric Holder plays the race card for South Carolina:

    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. claims Jim Crow is returning.  In a recent speech, Mr. Holder said that attempts by states to pass voter identification laws will disenfranchise minorities, rolling back the clock to the evil days of segregation.  He said that a growing number of minorities fear that "the same disparities, divisions and problems" now afflict America as they did in 1965 prior to the Voting Rights Act.  According to the Obama administration, our democracy is being threatened by racist Republicans.  Hence, the Justice Department must prevent laws requiring a photo ID to vote from being enacted.

    Holder’s argument has no foothold in reality.

    Kuhner points out that Holder’s real problem is that photo ID laws will impair ACORN’s ability to conduct fraud:

    Mr. Holder evidently wants to scuttle ID laws because he knows which organization will be hurt most: ACORN.  For years, community activist groups, such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, have engaged in massive electoral fraud -- registering illegal aliens, offering bribes to numerous politically disinterested people in the inner cities as inducements to vote and pushing underage and multiple voting.  Election reform, therefore, is a stake aimed at the heart of Democratic corruption and ACORN’s power.  Clean up the voter rolls and Obama’s re-election is in serious jeopardy.

    Free photo ID cards are made available to anyone who needs one in South Carolina as are absentee votes for those who would trouble getting to the polls.  Additionally, in blocking the South Carolina law Holder runs afoul of stare decisis:

    Moreover, the Supreme Court already has ruled on the issue -- upholding state voter ID laws.  In the 2008 Crawford v. Marion County Election Board decision, the high court held that an Indiana law mandating photo identification at the voting booth was indeed constitutional.  If it is good enough for the Supreme Court and the overwhelming majority of the states, then it should be for Holder as well.

    Holder claims that requiring a photo ID is tatamount to a poll tax but that is laughable:

    "He has a particularly hard time explaining how the South Carolina requirement of government-issued photo identification amounts to a 'poll tax' when the state has also made provisions to provide that identification, free of charge.  Hear that, Mr. Attorney General?  The only thing the voter has to do is show up and get his or her photo taken.  And if that’s too much darn trouble well, then, that person can do something else on election day."

    Why is too burdensome to show up and obtain a photo ID but not too burdensome to show up to vote?

    The ducks are aligning in a row.  Blocking the South Carolina law will allow ACORN and other left wing operations to run amuck with voter fraud.  The problem is that election fraud is a Federal offense, and that’s where Holder becomes critical.  I fully expect no end to election chicanery on the part of the ACORN and the left, whether it involves "finding" lost votes as in Minnesota, printing out enough democrat ballots to guarantee a victory, forging signatures, or forging more signatures.  I also expect that Holder would dismiss out of hand all claims beneficial to Obama and democrats and pursue only those in which the outcomes favored Republicans.

    Ultimately the job of the Attorney General of the United States is protect the law from abuse but it is painfully clear that Eric Holder was appointed to protect abuse from the law.

    Justice John Paul Stevens wrote:

    ”There is no question about legitimacy or importance of a state ‘s interest in counting only eligible voters.”

    The integrity of the vote means nothing to Holder.  Eric Holder would not know integrity if it bit him in the ass.

    And that’s exactly why he was appointed.

    Iranian Born Valerie Jarrett Gets Secret Service Detail - Israel Man Are You in Trouble




    Keith Koffler is reporting that Senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett apparently has Secret Service protection.
    This is highly unusual, and of course, costly. I’ve never really heard of someone who is merely a senior White House aide getting assigned Secret Service agents.
    My understanding is that at the senior levels of the Bush White House, at least during the latter days, only the president and his family, the vice president, the chief of staff, the national security adviser, and the homeland security adviser were assigned Secret Service agents.
    It’s possible that Jarrett has received enough specific and credible threats to justify Secret Service protection, or that the Secret Service has for some other reason calculated that she needs bodyguards. But it’s also possible this is a case of oddly overdoing it -- and overusing taxpayer resources.
    Is she really such a public figure?  I’m sure 90 percent of Americans have little to no idea who she is.  White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is far better known and spends his time warning terrorists and our foreign adversaries about bad behavior while trumpeting the killing of Osama Bin Laden.  I’m sure he does not have protection.
    According to a local report, Jarrett was accompanied by at least two Secret Service agents during her pre-Martin Luther King Day appearance in Atlanta Sunday, where she bashed Republicans in church.
    One source of mine, who is knowledgeable about what a Secret Service detail would look like, said he spotted Jarrett at Reagan National Airport with her protection as she departed Washington just before Christmas.
    After watching her blow past a long line at the security gate, he noticed she had one Secret Service agent in back and the other in front, with someone who was possibly a third agent to her side.

    Don't Forget Arizona - They're Still on the Front Line Against Mexico and Obama

    How the Game is Played

    By Nicholas Contompasis
    It's no coincidence that the Federal Reserve this weekend is now calling for another Quantitative Easing (QE-3 1/2 or are we on 4 already?) just after the President's request for an increase of the National Debt by over a trillion dollars.
    It's also no coincidence that the EUR vs USD opened lower, touching 1.2632 today.
    For all that are not familiar with this valuation, the lower this number goes, the more our country can go into debt without hurting the value of our currency against the now second largest currency, the Euro.
    Just imagine if we had our fiscal house in order, how powerful our currency would be. Oil would be around $25 a barrel, Iran and Russia would financially implode and our economy along with jobs would prosper and grow.
    See what happens when the books are balanced and you play the game the way it should be played.
    This coming from an old accountant who doesn't know what he's talking about, yeah RIGHT!!!

    Obama is Right Now Rewriting ObamaCare Without Congress

    Another ObamaCare Glitch
    Congress made a legal mistake while rushing through the health law. Now it's come back to haunt the administration.

    By JONATHAN H. ADLER AND MICHAEL F. CANNON

    Even if ObamaCare survives Supreme Court scrutiny next spring, its trials will be far from over. That's because the law has a major glitch that threatens its basic functioning. It's so problematic, in fact, that the Obama administration is now brazenly trying to rewrite the law without involving Congress.
    The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act offers "premium assistance"—tax credits and subsidies—to households purchasing coverage through new health-insurance exchanges. This assistance was designed to hide a portion of the law's cost to individuals by reducing the premium hikes that individuals will face after ObamaCare goes into effect in 2014. (If consumers face the law's full cost, support for repeal will grow.)
    The law encourages states to create health-insurance exchanges, but it permits Washington to create them if states decline. So far, only 17 states have passed legislation to create an exchange.
    This is where the glitch comes in: ObamaCare authorizes premium assistance in state-run exchanges (Section 1311) but not federal ones (Section 1321). In other words, states that refuse to create an exchange can block much of ObamaCare's spending and practically force Congress to reopen the law for revisions.
    The Obama administration wants to avoid that legislative debacle, so this summer it proposed an IRS rule to offer premium assistance in all exchanges "whether established under section 1311 or 1321." On Nov. 17 the IRS will hold a public hearing on that proposal. According to a Treasury Department spokeswoman, the administration is "confident" that offering premium assistance where Congress has not authorized it "is consistent with the intent of the law and our ability to interpret and implement it."
    Such confidence is misplaced. The text of the law is perfectly clear. And without congressional authorization, the IRS lacks the power to dispense tax credits or spend money.
    What about congressional intent? Law professor Timothy Jost suggests that since ObamaCare requires all exchanges to report information about premium assistance, and it would be silly to impose that requirement on federal exchanges if their enrollees were not eligible, that shows Congress could not have intended anything but to provide assistance in federal exchanges. At least, he argues, there's enough ambiguity here about Congress's intent that federal courts will permit the administration to resolve it.
    Not so fast. The Supreme Court has increasingly limited such deference to cases where the text of the law—rather than Congress's intent—is ambiguous. In this case the language of the law is clear, as even Mr. Jost admits.
    The health law's authors in Congress deliberately chose to pass the bill with known imperfections and to use the reconciliation process to make only limited amendments. Writing a perfect bill would have required too many votes and risked failure. If what they passed was an imperfect bill with no premium assistance in federal exchanges, then that is what Congress intended.
    And there are plausible reasons why Congress may have wanted to limit assistance to state-run exchanges—including encouraging states to create exchanges so that the federal government doesn't have the burden.
    Supporters of ObamaCare, including George Washington University's Sarah Rosenbaum, have argued that nobody will have standing to challenge the IRS rule in court. That's not the case.
    Under the law, employers must pay penalties when their employees receive premium assistance—a measure designed to encourage employers to keep offering coverage. Any employer whose employees receive premium assistance through a federal exchange would therefore suffer harm from the IRS rule and would have standing to challenge these illegal tax credits and outlays.
    Public-interest lawyers could file suit as soon as the IRS rule becomes final and they find an employer that will be harmed. Any firm that doesn't offer health benefits and that employs lots of full-time, low-skilled, young workers in a state that fails to create an exchange should suffice. A successful challenge would block the law's employer mandate in that state.
    In addition, under the Congressional Review Act, a simple (filibuster-proof) majority vote in each chamber of Congress could send to President Obama's desk a resolution blocking this IRS rule. Even if Mr. Obama vetoed the resolution (taking personal responsibility for this assault on the rule of law), a future president could still rescind the rule. Quite a perilous situation in which to leave the president's signature accomplishment.
    Like the rest of the nation, the Obama administration wants a different health-care law than the one we got. But that doesn't give it the authority to rewrite the law by fiat.

    Russia: Attack on Tehran is Attack on Moscow

    by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

    Russia has given Iran its bear hug and warns Israel and the West that an attack on Tehran would be considered an attack on Moscow. The threat heightens the prospect of World War III in the event of a military strike on Iran.
    “Iran is our neighbor,” Russia's outgoing ambassador to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, told reporters in Brussels. “And if Iran is involved in any military action, it’s a direct threat to our security.”
    Kremlin Security Council head Nikolai Patrushev accused Israel of provoking the United States towards war against Iran, the Russian Interfax news agency reported Friday. “But at the same time, we believe that any country has the right to have what it needs to feel comfortable, including Iran," he added.
    Rogozin warned on Friday that more attacks on Iran could cause "a scorching Arab Summer."  
    Russia also has come to the defense of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, warning Western nations not to intervene in Syria with military forces. Russia is a major arms supplier to Syria and has a heavy investment in Iran’s nuclear facilities.
    Japan also is drifting towards Iran, backtracking from its promise last week to back American sanctions aimed at persuading Iran to halt its unsupervised nuclear development.
    Last week’s assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist has aroused more “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” protest rallies in Iran, where the scientist was buried on Friday.
    Iranian state radio said the 32-year-old scientist was involved with enriched uranium, a key ingredient for a nuclear weapon.

    US Believes Israel May Strike Iran Soon

    Saturday, 14 Jan 2012
    DoD officials are increasingly alarmed that Israel is on the verge of military action against Iran -- to take out that country's nuclear weapons potential, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.
    The report suggests that the Israeli preparations are being carried forth despite strong objections by the U.S., which has ramped up planning to safeguard U.S. facilities in the region.
    President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, among others, have warned Israeli leaders about the consequences of a strike, urging patience to allow the sanctions against Iran to take hold.
    Meanwhile, U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is slated to meet with Israeli military officials in Tel Aviv next week.
    The moves to calm Israel come against a backdrop of stern U.S. messages to Iran's leaders against provocative actions such as closing the Strait of Hormutz to oil shipments.

    Breaking News - 'Israeli Mossad agents posed as CIA spies to recruit terrorists to fight against Iran'

    Foreign Policy magazine cites CIA memos from 2007-2008 that the Mossad recruited members of Jundallah terror group to fight against Tehran; U.S. was reportedly furious with Israel and moved to limit joint intelligence programs.

    By Barak Ravid
    Israeli Mossad agents posed as CIA officers in order to recruit members of a Pakistani terror group to carry out assassinations and attacks against the regime in Iran, Foreign Policy revealed on Friday, quoting U.S. intelligence memos.
    Foreign Policy's Mark Perry reported that the Mossad operation was carried out in 2007-2008, behind the back of the U.S. government, and infuriated then U.S. President George W. Bush.
    Perry quotes a number of American intelligence officials and claims that the Mossad agents used American dollars and U.S. passports to pose as CIA spies to try to recruit members of Jundallah, a Pakistan-based Sunni extremist organization that has carried out a series of attacks in Iran and assassinations of government officials.
    According to the report, Israel's recruitment attempts took place mostly in London, right under the nose of U.S. intelligence officials.
    "It's amazing what the Israelis thought they could get away with," Foreign Policy quoted an intelligence officer as saying. "Their recruitment activities were nearly in the open. They apparently didn't give a damn what we thought."
    According to a currently serving U.S. intelligence officer, Perry reports, when Bush was briefed on the information he "went absolutely ballistic."
    "The report sparked White House concerns that Israel's program was putting Americans at risk," the intelligence officer told Perry. "There's no question that the U.S. has cooperated with Israel in intelligence-gathering operations against the Iranians, but this was different. No matter what anyone thinks, we're not in the business of assassinating Iranian officials or killing Iranian civilians."
    The intelligence officer said that the Bush administration continued to deal with the affair until the end of his term. He noted that Israel's operation jeopardized the U.S. administration's fragile relationship with Pakistan, which was under immense pressure from Iran to crack down on Jundallah.
    According to the intelligence officer, a senior administration official vowed to "take the gloves off" with Israel, but ultimately the U.S. did nothing.
    "In the end it was just easier to do nothing than to, you know, rock the boat," the intelligence officer said.
    Apparently, the Mossad operation caused a fiery debate among Bush's national security team and it was only resolved when U.S. President Barack Obama drastically scaled back joint U.S.-Israel intelligence programs targeting Iran, Perry quotes several serving and retired officers as saying.
    The U.S. State Department has vehemently denied any ties to Jundallah and many U.S. intelligence officials remained angry with Israel over the 2007-2008 operation.
    "Israel is supposed to be working with us, not against us," Foreign Policy quoted an intelligence officer as saying. "If they want to shed blood, it would help a lot if it was their blood and not ours. You know, they're supposed to be a strategic asset. Well, guess what? There are a lot of people now, important people, who just don't think that's true."
    The CIA, the White House, and the Mossad failed to respond to the Foreign Policy report by the time it went to press.

    Breaking News - President Obama Plans On Losing in November and Michelle Obama Eyeing Connecticut Mansion for a First Family Split


    By Nicholas Contompasis

    Based on reports coming in, President Obama realizing that he will lose the U.S. Presidential election in November. He has his eye on Katherine Hepburn's old house in Connecticut after he leaves the White House in January.
    I have included further details from my source of information.


    "Tina Detelj is reporting that it is rumored that Barack Obama has considered purchasing the late Katharine Hepburn's 8,300-square-foot mansion in the posh Fenwick section of Old Saybrook.
    Some folks living in the Fenwick section of Old Saybrook were not surprised by the recent rumors.
    Marge Taylor says news that Barack Obama may be looking at Katherine Hepburn's old house is nothing new.  She says his daughters Sasha and Malia have already been seen around the neighborhood because Sasha is friends with a girl who's family has a home here.
    "The daughters go by here with their bicycles. They're lovely girls," she said.
    Whether or not the supposed Obama daughter sightings have sparked speculation Obama is looking at the screen idol's former home is not known.
    According to the Connecticut Post, the current owner, New York construction executive Frank Sciame bought the 1938 brick mansion with his wife, Barbara, for $6 million in 2004.  They are neither confirming nor denying the rumor.

    If the first family were to move in, Taylor's not concerned about any increase in crowds.  "We're very low key we just say hello to the girls and no problems," she said.
    However neighbor Sally Wiederecht is a little worried.  "I wouldn't want the town to change in the sense of it's nice and quiet here," she said.
    The entire 3.4-acre property, with 680 feet of waterfront where Hepburn would enjoy a near-daily swim, is on the market for about $28 million."

    Obama's Communist Mentor

    Accuracy in Media has an in-depth profile of a leftist who influenced Obama during his high school years.  In an article entitled, "Obama's Communist Mentor," Cliff Kincaid identifies a member of the Communist Party USA, who has been influential in Obama's life and education, Frank Marshall Davis, who was a communist -- and born in Kansas.
    Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA).  The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his "poetry" and getting advice on his career path.  But Obama, in his book, "Dreams From My Father," refers to him repeatedly as just "Frank."  Frank is the black communist writer now considered by some to be in the same category of prominence as Maya Angelou and Alice Walker.
    According to an interview with Dawn Weatherly-Williams, Obama returned to Hawaii in the fall of 1970 to attend Punahou School.  He first met Frank Marshall Davis after he took the entrance exams.
    Davis moved to Honolulu from Chicago in 1948 with his second wife Helen Canfield, a white socialite, at the suggestion of his friend the actor Paul Robeson, who advised them that there would be more tolerance of a mixed race couple in Hawaii than on the American mainland.    Robeson, of course, was the well-known black actor and singer who served as a member of the CPUSA and apologist for the old Soviet Union.  Davis had known Robeson from his time in Chicago.
    The 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member.  What's more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations.
    In his book, Obama writes about "a poet named Frank," who visited his family in Hawaii, read poetry, and was full of "hard-earned knowledge" and advice.  Who was Frank?  Obama only says that he had "some modest notoriety once," was "a contemporary of Richard Wright and Langston Hughes during his years in Chicago..." but was now "pushing eighty."  He writes about "Frank and his old Black Power dashiki self" giving him advice before he left for Occidental College in 1979 at the age of 18. 
    Davis wrote, "The genuine Communists I knew as well as others so labeled had one principle in common: to use any and every means to abolish racism."  Davis said he wrote to give "the widest possible publicity to the many instances of racism and the dissatisfaction of Afro-American with the status quo."
    Obama quoted him as saying: "Leaving your race at the door.  Leaving your people behind.  Understand something, boy.  You’re not going to college to get educated.  You’re going there to get trained."
    He added, "they’ll tank on your chain and let you know that you may be a well-trained, well-paid nigger, but you’re a nigger just the same."
     Is it possible that Obama did not know who Davis was when he wrote his book?  That's not plausible, since Obama refers to him as a contemporary of Richard Wright and Langston Hughes and says he saw a book of his black poetry.
    But why?  What does Obama have to say about this curious omission?  Could it have something to do with the fact that, by the time Obama wrote his book, he knew that Davis was a Communist?  And that he deliberately covered this up?  Or did he know it earlier?
    This is the key question: What did Obama know and when did he know it?
    Which of course raises the disturbing questions that must be asked:
    Did Davis recruit Obama?
    Professor Gerald Horne, a history professor at the University of Houston, noted that Davis, came into contact with Barack Obama and his family and became the young man's mentor, influencing Obama's sense of identity and career moves.
    As Horne describes it, Davis, who wrote the memoir, "Living the Blues," had "befriended" a "Euro-American family" that had "migrated to Honolulu from Kansas and a young woman from this family eventually had a child with a young student from Kenya East Africa who goes by the name of Barack Obama, who retracing the steps of Davis eventually decamped to Chicago."
    Dr. Kathryn Takara, a professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa who also confirms that Davis is the "Frank" in Obama’s book, did her dissertation on Davis and spent much time with him between 1972 until he passed away in 1987.
    In an analysis posted online, she notes that Davis, who was a columnist for the Honolulu Record, brought "an acute sense of race relations and class struggle throughout America and the world" and that he openly discussed subjects such as American imperialism, colonialism and exploitation. She described him as a "socialist realist" who attacked the work of the House Un-American Activities Committee.
    Davis, in his own writings, had said that Robeson and Harry Bridges, the head of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) and a secret member of the CPUSA, had suggested that he take a job as a columnist with the Honolulu Record "and see if I could do something for them." The ILWU was organizing workers there and Robeson’s contacts were "passed on" to Davis, Takara writes.
    Takara says that Davis "espoused freedom, radicalism, solidarity, labor unions, due process, peace, affirmative action, civil rights, Negro History week, and true Democracy to fight imperialism, colonialism, and white supremacy. He urged coalition politics."
    Poems from Davis are in the book "Black Moods" which was edited by John Tidwell, a University of Kansas professor and expert on Davis' writings.  He confirmed to Kincaid that Davis joined the Communist Party but that he publicly tried to deny his affiliations.
    Asked why Takara thought Obama didn't identify Frank in his book by his full name, she replied, "Maybe, he didn't want people delving into it."
    Stanley Dunham, Obama's grandfather, was friends with Davis, a bohemian libertine who drank heavily and loved jazz -- both had roots reaching back to Kansas and had families of mixed races -- and the black writer took an interest in Obama.
    "Our grandfather ... thought (Frank) was a point of connection, a bridge if you will, to the larger African-American experience for my brother," Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama's half-sister, said during a recent interview.
    For Obama, Davis was an intriguing figure, "with his books and whiskey breath and the hint of hard-earned knowledge behind the hooded eyes."

    Dunham and his grandson would spend evenings at Davis's dilapidated home in Waikiki, Honolulu's main tourist district.  Davis, who had raised a family with a white wife, would read his poetry and share whiskey with Dunham, Obama recalled.
    Dawna Weatherly-Williams, a friend of Davis' who also lives in Honolulu, said Dunham wanted Obama to know that there were other children like him who were part black and part white, she said.
    "Stan was real proud of that," she said, adding that it was rare to see black men with white women at the time.
    "He knew Stan real well.  They’d play Scrabble and drink and crack jokes and argue.   Frank always won and he was always very braggadocio about it too.  It was all jocular.  They didn’t get polluted drunk.  And Frank never really did drugs, though he and Stan would smoke pot together."
    "Stan had been promising to bring Barry by because we all had that in common.  Frank’s kids were half-white, Stan’s grandson was half-black and my son was half-black.  We all had that in common and we all really enjoyed it.  We got a real kick out of reality."
    Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama's half-sister, told the Associated Press recently that her grandfather had seen Davis was "a point of connection, a bridge if you will, to the larger African-American experience for my brother"
    According to Miss Weatherly-Williams, Davis lost touch with Dunham some time in the 1980s.
    Obama describes driving to Davis' home in Waikiki after learning that his white grandmother was so afraid of a black panhandler she did not want to take the bus to work. Davis told the teenager that his grandmother was correct to feel scared because she understood African-Americans "have a reason to hate."
    Davis said Obama's grandfather would never understand people like him because they hadn't experienced the humiliations he had, according to Obama's memoir.  As he left Davis's house that night, Obama wrote, he knew he was completely alone for the first time in his life.
    Davis appears again later in the book, when Obama recalls meeting the writer shortly before leaving for college on the mainland.  At that meeting, Davis scolded Obama for his listless attitude toward college and warned him not to leave his race behind, which he called "the real price of admission" to higher education. 
    "Leaving your race at the door.  Leaving your people behind…. You're not going to college to get educated.  You're going to get trained…. They'll train you to forget what you already know.  They'll train you so good, you'll start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that s**t."  And then Frank pronounces the modern version of the one key concept which the Democratic Party, under slavery, segregation, and civil rights, has sought to ingrain in the mind of every black person: "You may be a well-trained, well-paid nigger, but you're a nigger just the same."
    A few days later Obama left Hawaii for Occidental College in Los Angeles.

    More Dirt on Michelle Obama

     
    I received the following over the transom from an attorney who was an associate and peer of Michelle Robinson (Obama) at the law firm of Sidley Austin, LLP.
     
    Michele's office was on my floor at the firm and I would walk by it everyday.  She was rarely in the office, had very limited work papers in her office, yet apparently was drawing an associate salary while not practicing law, and billing huge hours as is ordinary for an associate.  My fellow associates and I worked to 10 p.m. customarily and many times to  2 to 3 a.m., every weekend, meeting the crushing work loads.  But Michele never had to do that, which understandably caused a lot of resentment amongst fellow associates.  I have no first hand knowledge since it would be a private and confidential arrangement, but the associate scuttlebutt drawn from partner "leaks" was that she was drawing a firm salary while working full time for City Hall doing political fund raising and "special projects" work for the Daley Machine.  The word was that this arrangement benefited the firm because many times their real estate clients had city zoning and other legal issues that required city approvals or resolution, so the firm needed to be viewed as on the city hall team and accede to their wishes.  So from the very start of her career my opinion is that Michelle was the beneficiary of the nefarious city hall back scratching schemes.  As demonstrated by The Obama File, she seems to have benefitted from these "arrangements" her entire professional career.  I have my doubts that she did much at the University of Chicago to justify such an enormous salary and have never heard tell of any significant projects she was handling, let alone any accomplishments or major successes in the healthcare field. 
          
    Michele at one point did leave officially to work for the Daley Administration, but was already well engaged in political activities during the day and regularly absent from the firm for a lengthy period of time before she left.  I can't recall the precise timelines but I would estimate that she was listed as an associate at the firm but not carrying a regular work load for well over one year, maybe even two years before she "left" for the City Hall payroll. 

    On a personal note, Michele was simply the most angry, arrogant and caustic young person I have ever met in my life.  She simply would not engage with her fellow associates and apparently viewed herself as superior to them.  I personally observed that she would only engage with partners, most notably senior partners.  Never a friendly smile or good morning for staff or fellow associates as she walked past them day after day after day.  I remember one particular instance where a group of associates and I were chatting at a firm cocktail party and I noted how no one seemed to know Michele but were constantly gossiping about her.  The gang just commented about how arrogant and unfriendly she was and never around.  I commented that maybe she was just uncomfortable as a Southside girl being around all of these elitist, snobby white folks at a silk stocking firm.  So I walked over to her when she was getting hors d'oeuvres and introduced myself as a friendly overture.  She gave me a dirty look, literally threw her head back and turned her back on me and walked back over the a group of senior partners gathered around Eden Martin!  As if you say how dare you approach me you filthy little underling.  I went back to my group of associates friends feeling embarrassed and they just chuckled and said "told ya'."  So, Michele was not the sweet or kind person the media would like us to believe.  She was an elitist and only was interested in those who could advance her personal interest, not ordinary folks.  To this day, that episode was the rudest I have ever been treated by anyone, and there are lot of rude lawyers out there.
     
    I never met Barack, but only heard about him second hand.  My fellow associates who were summer interns with him (in '89 I think) described him as very tall, handsome, thin, and amiable but pretty aloof.  They commented of his love of basketball and that he was always up for a game and that basketball and politics is all that grabbed his interest at the time.  They stated that he did not seem to be interested in practicing law at a big firm and doing the hard and dull work that that entailed, was just drawing his big pay check, that he did not turn work assignments in on a timely matter, was gone frequently, and generally wanted to be a community organizer in preparation for a political career, not as a practicing attorney.  As a result, the firm -- according to what I was told by people that should know -- did not extend him an offer.   So as shocking as it seems, our Obama apparently did not make the cut as a summer intern.  I suspect that is buried like all written documentation and will never see the light of day, but I do wonder if Obama could produce an offer letter from Sidley?  According to what I was told, and this is just second hand, he was not offered a job and was instead sent a regrets letter.  This of course is not to say that he could not have succeeded if he wanted to.   He is bright and quick, and I would hate to try a lawsuit against him, but certainly not the brilliant legal scholar and committed, talented practicing attorney that he has been portrayed as by the media.  He was, and is very much a clever Southside Chicago pol, no more and no less.
     
    According to Wikipedia, Obama was a summer associate with Hopkins & Sutter in 1990, and graduated in 1991 from Harvard.  So that would suggest he was a first year summer intern at Sidley in 89', was not offered to return for a second summer, took a summer intern job at Hopkins & Sutter, and probably did not get an offer there either -- unless he can account for his time away from legal practice.  Hopkins paid a top tier salary, so I doubt that he would turn that down if he was offered it. 
     
    Both were kind of odd cases at Sidley, frankly.  Regardless of their ethnicity, gender, or other background, all other young lawyers to a person that I met were very committed to making a career at the firm, worked very hard at their projects, worked on honing their craft and were trying to build a reputation within the firm for doing quality legal work and build a career.  However, both Michele and Barack came into the firm and were treated very differently and behaved differently, more like political hires who were just using the firm as a political vehicle, getting a blue-chip firm stamp on their resume, and being funded in the meantime.  Same basic "arrangement" as Bernadine Dohrn had.  She did not do legal work to my knowledge and paying her a salary was simply a deposit in the favor bank to borrow a phrase from Bonfire of the Vanities.  Mary A. Dempsey, current head of the Chicago Public Library and husband of super lawyer and Dem pol Phil Corboy, was another political hire.  She did not really practice law but simply practiced Chicago politics and drew a salary at the same time.  This is what they call the "Chicago Way."  Future leaders are not chosen on merit or strength of character but are simply groomed and coopted as appartchniks of the political machine.  
     
    My strong sense is that both Michele and Barack Obama are mere empty creations of the Chicago political machine who advanced through the ranks in order to support vested political and economic interests.  Who these vested interests were or what back room deals were made, no one will ever know.  Barack's background as a "constitutional scholar" is widely acknowledged a being a sham by the true constitutional lawyers and scholars in Chicago.  How can you be a constitutional scholar when you have not written a single legal brief on the subject, given a single meaningful scholarly lecture before experts, published a peer-reviewed scholarly articles or treatise?  There is simply no "there, there" which is why BHO is so lost when he goes off of teleprompter and seems to be so lost for answers and fresh ideas or even rudimentary knowledge -- he is simply the spokesman for these hidden interests and power brokers who espouse a radical far left ideology and delivers the same old tired leftist adages and buzz words.  My measurement of him is that is literally the living, breathing and tragically elected "Chauncey Gardiner of the Left."  (Remember the scene where the power brokers at the end of the film "Being There" were talking about raising Chance the gardener to the office of the President).
