Testimony contradicts WH Council Internal Report on Blago!

We go from knowledge of Blago intentions to cover-up crime.

On 12/23/09, while on vacation in Hawaii and unable to field questions from reporters, Obama’s White House Council (Greg Craig) released his internal report that exonerates the President elect and his Cabinet from the growing Senate Seat sale.

Excerpts from the report:

The President-Elect

"the President-Elect had no contact or communication with Governor Blagojevich or members of his staff about the Senate seat. In various conversations with transition staff and others, the President-Elect expressed his preference that Valerie Jarrett work with him in the White House.

He also stated that he would neither stand in her way if she wanted to pursue the Senate seat nor actively seek to have her or any other particular candidate appointed to the vacancy.

After Ms. Jarrett decided on November 9, 2008 to withdraw her name from consideration as a possible replacement for him in the Senate and to accept the White House job, the President-Elect discussed other qualified candidates with David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel. Those candidates included Representatives Jan Schakowsky and Jesse Jackson, Jr., Dan Hynes and Tammy Duckworth. The President-Elect understood that Rahm Emanuel would relay these names to the Governor's office as additions to the pool of qualified candidates who might already be under consideration. Mr. Emanuel subsequently confirmed to the President that he had in fact relayed these names. At no time in the discussion of the Senate seat or of possible replacements did the President-Elect hear of a suggestion that the Governor expected a personal benefit in return for making this appointment to the Senate."

Testimony today in the blago trial:

"On (the day before the Presidential elections) -Top union leader Thomas Balanoff (SEIU) said he was at dinner the night before (November 4) the November Presidential election when he got a call that was blocked.

So he didn't take it.

Later he listened to his messages: "I walked outside, listened to it and it was from President Obama," Balanoff said.

"Tom, this is Barrack, give me a call," the soon-to-be President-Elect said on the message.

After Balanoff sent word through an Obama aide to call him back, Obama returned his call later that night.

"Tom, I want to talk to you with regard to the Senate seat," Obama told him.

Balanoff said Obama said he had two criteria: someone who was good for the citizens of Illinois and could be elected in 2010. Obama said he wasn't publicly coming out in support of anyone but he believed Valerie Jarrett would fit the bill. "I would much prefer she (remain in the White House) but she does want to be Senator and she does meet those two criteria," Balanoff said Obama told him. "I said: 'thank you, I'm going to reach out to Gov. Blagojevich."

Assessment: According to the internal report “The President-Elect had no contact or communication with Governor Blagojevich or members of his staff about the Senate seat

According to Tom Balanoff (SEIU President) testimony today, Obama personally called him and said “Tom, I want to talk to you with regard to the Senate seat” and Balanoff ended the call on 11/4/08 with”thank you, I'm going to reach out to Gov. Blagojevich."

Obama personally had contact with Blagojevich staff, through a Union intermediary, specifically to relay Valerie Jarrett’s name for the seat.

Balanoff testified that on 11/6/08 he met with Blagojevich -- "Balanoff then described a Nov. 6, 2008 meeting he had with Rod Blagojevich to recommend Valerie Jarrett for Barrack Obama's Senate seat.

Blagojevich responded that he was in "active discussions" with the Madigan’s about appointing Lisa Madigan and was holding out for a legislative package with the House speaker.

"I said that could be months. He said, 'Yeah'. I said Valerie Jarrett, I don't believe she has that kind of time," Balanoff testified.

Blago then turned the conversation to a cabinet position, Balanoff said.

"He said, 'You know, I love being governor, but my real passion is health care,'" and then he asked about the Health and Human Services cabinet post.

"I told him that's not going to happen," Balanoff said. "He said, "Is that because of all the investigations around me?"

This exchange infers two things:

1) That by 11/6/08 Obama would have known that Blagojevich was seeking a “quid pro quo” for Jarrett and did not report it as a crime. And

2) When Blagojevich turned the conversation to a cabinet position and suggested his “passion” for the HHS post, Balanoff cut him off with the comment that “That’s not going to happen. This gives anyone with a brain that Balanoff has the authority to negotiate. Balanoff did not say he “believes that would never happen” but said directly that “that’s not going to happen”!

It is also important to note that Balanoff’s testimony was not given in exchange for a “lighter sentence” because he was not indicted for a crime. He is simply giving “witness testimony”. So Obama supporters will have a hard time explaining how Balanoff has a credibility problem like, let’s say John Harris or Tony Rezko.

I would say that Balanoff is very credible and that the proven relationship between Obama (pre-election and after) and SEIU is very cozy indeed. It explains why he would use one of their senior members to act as intermediary discretely.

In fact, after Balanoff received that message on November 4th from Obama, the first call Balanoff made was to Andy Stern. That fact has yet to come out at trial. Stern was Head of SEIU at the time and the most frequent visitor to the White House since Obama was elected.

Finally the White House Council report stated the following about Balanoff and Valerie Jarrett –

“On November 7, 2008 -- at a time when she was still a potential candidate for the Senate seat -- Ms. Jarrett spoke with Mr. Tom Balanoff, the head of the Illinois chapter of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). Mr. Balanoff is not a member of the Governor's staff and did not purport to speak for the Governor on that occasion. But because the subject of the Governor's interest in a cabinet appointment came up in that conversation, I am including a description of that meeting.

Mr. Balanoff told Ms. Jarrett that he had spoken to the Governor about the possibility of selecting Valerie Jarrett to replace the President-Elect. He told her that Lisa Madigan's name also came up. Ms. Jarrett recalls that Mr. Balanoff also told her that the Governor had raised with him the question of whether the Governor might be considered as a possible candidate to head up the Department of Health and Human Services in the new administration. Mr. Balanoff told Ms. Jarrett that he told the Governor that it would never happen. Jarrett concurred. Mr. Balanoff did not suggest that the Governor, in talking about HHS, was linking a position for himself in the Obama cabinet to the selection of the President-Elect's successor in the Senate, and Ms. Jarrett did not understand the conversation to suggest that the Governor wanted the cabinet seat as a quid pro quo for selecting any specific candidate to be the President-Elect's replacement. At no time did Balanoff say anything to her about offering Blagojevich a union position."

Assessment: At the time of the interim investigation report, the White House council report deflects and tries to imply that Mr. Balanoff did not speak for the Governor when the report stated -- “Mr. Balanoff is not a member of the Governor's staff and did not purport to speak for the Governor on that occasion.”

We know from Balanoff testimony that this is disingenuous because Obama called Balanoff to speak to the Governor as his intermediary, not the Governors. In fact, Obama’s call to Balanoff was the prior evening to this accounting by White House Council.

This can be born out by the fact that Blagojevich turned the conversation with Balanoff to a HHS position within the Obama cabinet in which he shot Blagojevich down. That is not an indication that Balanoff worked or represented the Governor, it is indicative of Balanoff representing Obama.

of Democrats and Dying, and interesting analogy!

An interesting article over at "American Thinker" by Alex Stevenson titled "The Democrats' Five Stages". The author applies the 5 stages of grief outlined in the Elisabeth Kubler-Ross 1969 book (on Death and Dying) and compares it to the Democrats of today. I found it a compelling assessment:

"The five stages are:

Denial, a temporary defense for the individual

Anger, when denial fails, resistance and rage against the truth replace it.

Bargaining, the third stage involves the hope that the inevitable can be delayed

Depression, the beginning of understanding the inevitable

Acceptance, honestly dealing with the reality of the situation.

The Democrats are going through this process.

Consider the Democrats' response to the Tea Party Movement in terms of this analysis. The Democrats and media offer a classic instance of Denial. The unified response by the party and the media was to characterize the movement as "Astroturf." MSM reports on the Tea Party demonstration in Washington minimized the large number of participants and labeled them as poorly organized and unlikely to have any influence on the debate of the role of the Federal Government in our current crisis.

The second stage, Anger, is well underway and may have peaked. The House Democrats called the Tea Party "racist," claiming imaginary swastikas at rallies, and marched to the Capitol in force, bearing the Imperial Gavel in order to provoke an incident. The only incident was a phony spitting accusation and a non-existent racial epithet by an entrenched incumbent race baiter.

Looking forward in the political process, Americans should anticipate the third stage, Bargaining. The Democrats will offer up candidates under the false flag third party "Tea Party." In Florida, Democrat Congressman Alan Grayson has conspired with corrupt local operatives to register the Tea Party as a political party. The intention is to put candidates on the ballot in November in order to confuse the electorate and draw votes away from the newly invigorated Republicans. We can anticipate more of this nationally, depending on its success in Florida and Nevada.

Depression will be the overwhelming emotion in the Democrat leadership after the elections in November. They will be inconsolable and difficult to deal with in the depths of their despair, and not just a little dangerous. The few months between the November election and new members taking their seats in House and Senate will be a lame duck session we all should fear.

The final stage is Acceptance. Will the Democrats ever abandon the tactics that delegitimize a Republican majority? Accusations of election fraud and lawsuits will be in the news in the period following any significant Democrat loss. It is doubtful that the Democrats will ever accept the new situation and start the cycle of grief over from the first stage, denial. The rage will be renewed through the rent-a-mob and bargaining will begin anew as committee seats are renegotiated.

Depression will bring the retirement of the previous powerful committee chairmen and other figures unable to deal with their loss., thus setting the stage for a new generation of Democrats, who will adjust to the new power structure. Acceptance will be required to advance any legislation favored by the Democrats, so in the long run, the new generation will come to terms.

Obama and his Union allies make significant gains!

What we know and don’t know!

What we don’t know:

What is the true cause of the BP oil rig explosion? Was it sabotage?  The Obama administration made one of its only real decisions in this ecological disaster when it placed a moratorium on any “deep water” drilling in the gulf and elsewhere in the United States. Ken Salazar, of the EPA, did so by citing experts (who have all come forward to say he lied about what they said in their reports) and now a Federal Court judge has overturned the moratorium. The battle continues with the Justice Department ready to appeal the decision to lift the ban and the EPA stating it will just re-impose another ban to circumvent the court ordered lifting.

Did you know that 100% of the “deep water oil rig” workers are non-union. Did you also know that unions have tried, in vain, for decades to organize a union shop on these oil platforms and failed? It begs the question of how much of the EPA and Obama’s decision to ban further drilling has to do with this fact? The 6 month moratorium is to give the government enough time to complete studies and investigations and come up with recommendations for renewed operations. What is to stop the government from concluding that part of the reason for the “accident” (I use this term loosely, though the government uses it exclusively before any meaningful investigations are even begun) is because of non-union labor? I think that the Union/Obama relationship is well established in the eyes of the voting public and is not a stretch to see the oil industry nationalized to accomplish Union transformation.

We already see the Unions pointing to this when the President of the Seafarers International Union penned a recent Op-Ed:

“The offshore exploration, production and service industry in the Gulf of Mexico, to the best of our knowledge, is 100 percent nonunion and increasingly foreign. Past attempts to organize these workers have been met with bitter opposition — not from employees but from employers. These largely anti-union employers struggle in a volatile, hyper-competitive environment that has resulted in unsafe working conditions and unstable employment. Lack of union representation has denied oil-field workers a voice in the workplace, which in turn has created an out-of-control industry with little oversight or accountability. It is painful to see oil-soaked birds receive more media attention than injured, deceased or displaced workers. It is also painful to see the lack of an organized workers' voice in the legislative and regulatory processes contribute to 11 deaths and the worst spill in U.S. history. This clearly did not have to happen.”

What we know:

GM and Chrystler were in deep financial trouble and seeking relief through the US Federal Bankruptcy courts. If they were allowed to enter into bankruptcy, the company would have had the opportunity to “renegotiate” (through the courts) the UAW pensions that were the direct reason for the company’s financial woes.

May 2009 - "General Motors (GM) has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, triggering the next stage in the ongoing fight to see who will bear the costs of making the company financially viable again. The bankruptcy process allows debts and other claims to be reduced, sometimes dramatically, in an attempt to create a reorganized firm that can actually earn enough to meet its downsized obligations. One large claim that could theoretically be cut back is the unfunded portion of GM’s pension liabilities."

In the end, the Government just took GM (70%) and gave the secondary share of ownership to the UAW (17.5%) and effectively killed the bankruptcy and in the end the shareholders were left holding the bag (along with taxpayers) for the UAW pension insolvency.

Obamacare has also ensured a “SEIU unionized” windfall of union membership.

The most recent jobs report show that while the private sector has lost over 2MM jobs the union government workforce has added roughly half a million net new jobs.

I would say this Administration is accomplishing much for unions who made it possible for Obama to accomplish his Oval Office victory.

Obama's talk is cheap!, Israel's tough talk worked!

Maybe the Obama administration can have a "teachable moment" over the tough talk of Israel to Iran when they communicated their response to Iran's assembling a "Gaza flotilla blockade busting" event of their own (using warships). Here is what happened next according to Michael Ledeen:

"Iran has cancelled sending an aid ship to the Gaza Strip which had been scheduled to set sail for the Palestinian territory on Sunday, state news agency IRNA reported.

"The trip is not going to happen," Hossein Sheikholeslam, secretary general of the International Conference for the Support of the "Palestinian" Intifada, an Iranian body set up by parliament, told reporters on Thursday, IRNA said.

He said the ship had originally been due to depart on Thursday, but "due to restrictions from the occupying Zionist regime, it was decided that this ship would leave on Sunday. But now the trip is not going to happen." ...

"The Zionist regime has made the blockade a political issue and we do not wish to politicise this kind of humanitarian aid because the most important thing for us is to break the blockade of Gaza," he said.

He said the voyage was cancelled as Israel "had sent a letter to the United Nations saying that the presence of Iranian and Lebanese ships in the Gaza area will be considered a declaration of war on that regime and it will confront it," IRNA quoted him as saying.

That’s clear enough, isn’t it? Israel said that if any Iranian ship tries to enter Israeli waters, it will be treated as an act of war. So the Iranians bagged it."

Maybe Obama could at least talk tough but it would ring hollow as everyone knows he would never back it with force, Israel on the other hand -- you betcha!

The other "teachable moment" would be for the Media and the UN who have claimed Israeli blockade to be a violation of Internation law is really an act of war against against a legitimate legal operation of Israel.

Last thought, Bill Ayres & Bernardine Dohrn along with Jodie Evans of Code Pink should be imprisoned for their direct involvement with the "flotilla" incident -- don't you thinK? They were guilty of this personal activity which led Israel to forcefully speak of war to an aggressive Islamic regime bent on destroying her.

"Custards last stand"

More aptly put, Biden slaughtered at Custard stand.

America needs another Ronald Reagan and

She needs another Joseph McCarthy!

June 25th marks the opening salvo of the Korean War and I sat down to watch a great Hollywood film (The Longest Day) that won 2 Oscars in 1962.

The iconic film was an example of the support that Hollywood (Institution) of the time and the actors that actively supported America troops and her allies. Names like John Wayne, Sean Connery, Robert Mitchum, Henry Fonda (who would have guessed his daughter Jane would lead the traitorous left later), Eddie Albert, Stuart Whitman, Rod Steiger, Peter Lawford and many more (five directors and a cast of thousands).

While I sat and watch with pride that influenced so many at such a critical time in our history (the outset of the Vietnam War and the counter-culture movement) it was apparent that so many in Hollywood and the US Government are so openly hostile of our country and equally as open about their socialist and communist fervor.

In 1962 the communist culture that was brimming just below the surface and closeted in the late 1940’s through the 1950’s was exposed by Joseph McCarthy and Ronald Reagan. In fact the term McCarthyism is a negative connotation used by leftists in the Main Stream media who today still claim he was on a witch-hunt and his assertions, baseless.

History has a way of vindication

The 1995 release of the Venona papers and corroboration from documents gleaned from the Soviet Archives largely vindicate McCarthy as correct in his assertions of widespread Soviet infiltration of the United States Government (at all levels including the White House) as well as Hollywood California.

Sean Penn, the Hugo Chavez loving actor’s family has a long history of communism starting with his father (Leo Penn) who was “blacklisted” from Hollywood acting until much later in life and only then, on television.

Rosey O’Donnel - "I say seize their assets. Right now. Seize their assets today. Take over the [company]. I don't care [how]. Issue an executive order...Call it socialism, call it communism, call it anything you want. Let's watch Rush Limbaugh explode on TV...Seize the assets. Take over BP."

Oliver Stone - U.S. filmmaker Oliver Stone said he sees Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez as an energetic, principled champion of change in Latin America and hopes to capture the spirit of his drive to roll back U.S. influence in an upcoming documentary.

Ed Asner – Interview with Progressive.org:

Q: Has it become easier for progressives in Hollywood now?

Asner: [Sighs.] I don’t think anything ever becomes easier for progressives. Far too much of our country is being misguided by rightwing radio, which dominates the airwaves. Far too many people are intrigued by the news space the tea baggers occupy. They talk about “socialism” while they’re busy collecting their Social Security, unemployment, and Medicare checks, and busily decrying any other new innovation as being “socialistic.”

Q: What do you think of socialism?

Asner: I think we need more of it.

Al Sharpton - "First of all, then we have to say the American public overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they elected President Obama," Sharpton said. "Let's not act as though the president didn't tell the American people - the president offered the American people health reform when he ran. He was overwhelmingly elected running on that and he has delivered what he promised."

It is no secret that now Obama has taken the Oval Office, Progressive Socialists and Communists are so emboldened that they no longer hide in the shadows. They openly discuss to any microphone in their face that they want America destroyed and replaced with their utopian madness. I believe that the results of the November elections will be our collective rejection of their ideals and kick their sorry asses to the curb and new fresh faces will emerge in the American conservative model in order to turn this tide back to our exceptionalism that the Democrats do not think we have…..

The promising outcome of "Kelo" - 5 years later

I believe that what happened when the US Supreme Court gave government the right to seize private property and give it to another private group (for monitary gain) energized individuals to act. It was the proverbial last straw for Americans who have seen the Constitution go down the tubes and government power grow to the state it has found itself in Obama. I also believe it was one of the main impetus' for the modern tea party movements phenom in "grass roots". Watch, and you decide.....

One good thing leads to another!

Or in this case, one bad thing leads to another!

An interesting piece of information hit the newswires yesterday concerning a fundraising letter Nanci Pelosi put forth regarding financial contributions for the upcoming November elections. I find it amusing that the very “tea party” she and her Democrat cohorts decried as “astro-turf” and insignificant are now keeping them awake at night with images of jail cells and the exposure of truth (truth that we already know but they think we are too stupid to know).

This letter of “campaign money desperately needed” is another “fear tactic” but this time it is their own personal fear of the coming inquisitions of their own behavior. You see, she and her fellow travelers are fearful of the myriad of investigations of this administration, particularly Obama himself that is driving this fear.

Darrel Issa (R-CA) has already held congressional investigations of ACORN and found them to be a “criminal enterprise” (surprise, surprise) and forwarded the Congressional findings to the Dept of Justice (Eric Holder) to open their own investigation, to no avail. Darrel Issa had this to say about the letter –

“Pelosi was effectively seeking "immunity" for the Obama administration. Obviously, Speaker Pelosi believes that a Democratic Congress should give this administration immunity from legitimate questions and appropriate accountability," Issa said. "Her statements are indicative of the desperate state her Majority is in and if the best case she can make is to caution the American people against the dangers of conducting legitimate and vigorous oversight, she is welcome to make that case."

The fear that Pelosi and her fellow travelers feel as it relates to her rhetoric of a “Ken Starr-like” witch hunt is a real and palpable one. If you recall, Ken Starr was initially appointed to look into the death of Vince Foster and the real estate investments of Bill Clinton (Whitewater). The thing about democrats is their dealings, or more aptly put, their Gordian knot of dealings are intricately woven and encompass many different illegalities that tie one subject to another and so on and so on. This dynamic was proven with Ken Starr because while the democrats were decrying witch hunt the investigators were led to each door as it related to the last. They simply followed the trail and it ultimately led to “Monica Lewinsky, Paula Jones and others”. The fact that Clinton lied under oath is a testament to the facts of the investigation. This led to the door that ultimately led to the impeachment of Clinton. This is what Pelosi and her ilk fears.

In her plea for contributions to hold back the initial door that will be opened by Issa it will lead to another door with Pelosi’s name on it. How so you ask? Let’s look at some of the facts. We know that the letter Pelosi sent out was in direct reference to the open admission of Issa’s that meaningful congressional investigations WILL be opened, at least in the following areas:

“At a recent speech to Pennsylvania Republicans here, he boasted about what would happen if the GOP wins 39 seats, and he gets the power to subpoena.

“That will make all the difference in the world,” he told 400 applauding party members during a dinner at the chocolate-themed Hershey Lodge. “I won’t use it to have corporate America live in fear that we’re going to subpoena everything. I will use it to get the very information that today the White House is either shredding or not producing.”

In other words, Issa wants to be to the Obama administration what Rep. Dan Burton (R-Ind.) was to the Clinton administration — a subpoena machine in search of White House scandals.

Even if Republicans don’t take the House, Issa has other ambitions. Those close to him say he is eyeing a potential run for a leadership post, even though he’s a two-time loser for Republican policy chairman.

Issa also is trying to build his national brand, traveling to Pennsylvania for a summer Republican meeting. He basked in praise for his role in creating “job-gate,” a mini scandal that forced the White House to admit that former President Bill Clinton tried to coax Rep. Joe Sestak out of the Democratic Senate primary in Pennsylvania by offering him an unpaid job.

After calling the White House “corrupt” and Obama’s presidency “failed,” Issa reiterated his claims that — despite a contrary assessment from most experts — the administration violated federal law with the Sestak imbroglio.

He also mentioned e-mail from White House deputy chief of staff Jim Messina to Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff about three possible administration jobs as the administration apparently tried to steer him away from a primary challenge against Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet.”

Once the door to “jobgate” is opened and the Obama Administration is left exposed to their gerrymandering of two “Senate seats” the facts will closely mirror what is currently unfolding in a Chicago, Illinois courtroom involving Rod Blagojevich which already has mentioned Obama, Emmanuel and Jarrett as well as Andy Stern and SEIU.

The doors that Issa will have to choose from are many and go in different directions. We know that he has already opened the ACORN door and his committee has already declared them to be a “criminal enterprise” that the Justice Department refused to investigate. The doors will ultimately lead to Obama’s door and inevitably his birth records. Once this door is opened it will lead to Pelosi as she was the one person on behalf of the Democrat party that signed two different forms that put forth Obama as “eligible” for his candidacy.

The Blagojevich trial has already proven that this Administration has engaged in deceit and cover-up when confronted with the realization that Blago was caught on FBI tape recordings dealing with this administration for the Senate seat. If you remember, the first response by Obama was “at no time did I or anyone in my administration” have any conversations with Blagojevich about the seat he vacated. It took less than a day for conflicting proof that David Axelrod had said a “list” was given directly to Blagojevich’s staff and the White House immediately said Axelrod misspoke. Then Axelrod came out and said as much. Then Obama said an internal investigation would occur shortly to see if anyone had direct communication over the seat with the Governors staff. The White House counsel report on that investigation exonerated the actions of the White House.

Now we know that John Harris said Obama knew that Blago was shopping the seat and that the staff of the President elect had direct contact through Rahm and members of SEIU.

If Watergate has shown us anything it is that the actual crime itself is less than a cover up. The reality that the Democrats, who have had Obama’s back covered, are facing their loss of power know that their day of judgment is on the horizon. It will not come from their God (because the have no God) but from the “little people” who they have insulted and derided since they took absolute power. Pelosi knows this and is pleading for your money to stop it. But, the problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money……

Obama -- someone to laugh at!

Blago, Obama and the Chicago way!

To understand Obama of today you need to look at his past.

They say to emulate someone is the sincerest form of flattery – unless you are Rod Blagojevich emulating Barrack Obama.

The trial underway in Chicago against Blago has many tales to tell in how politicians in the State of Illinois succeed at their craft. The trial of public opinion against Obama has also been waging since Obama has taken office and surrounded himself in the White House with those who hail from that very cesspool of corruption, thuggery and dirty tricks.

The public is aware, now, of Obama and his ties to ACORN and their voter fraud baggage. His community organizing experience is the only “real world” experience that he could claim on his resume during his candidacy for President and we know it was at ACORN and the “motor vote” drive.

There are many who say that the Joe Sestak job offer as well as the Andrew Romanoff job offer is no different than what Blago is on trial for – selling (or bribing) of a Senate Seat. We know that Obama and his crack White House staff is neck deep in the Blago trial because, after all, it was Obama’s vacated seat at the center of the trial.

That said, it is apparent that the Democrats will do just about anything to subvert the American electorate to place whom they deem fit for the job in a seat.

Before I get into any of the details about Obama’s meteoric rise to the White House I just need to point out that Blago vacated his Senate seat to become Governor (first win) and guess who was appointed to fill that vacated seat? Rahm Emmanuel!

To show the lengths that Obama’s employed from his Chicago dirty bag of tricks to get elected in 1996 to his first ever political office you may not have learned.

We know that one of Obama’s self proclaimed experience was with his efforts to get voter registration increased -- first in his home State before his first election, then, nationwide for his Presidential victory.

This is how CNN described it – “In his first race for office, seeking a state Senate seat on Chicago's gritty South Side in 1996, Obama effectively used election rules to eliminate his Democratic competition.

As a community organizer, he had helped register thousands of voters. But when it came time to run for office, he employed Chicago rules to invalidate the voting petition signatures of three of his challengers.

The move denied each of them, including incumbent Alice Palmer, a longtime Chicago activist, a place on the ballot. It cleared the way for Obama to run unopposed on the Democratic ticket in a heavily Democrat district.”

Could it be that the Obama team employed their ACORN army that registered non-existent voters and then challenged those very registrations?

The Islamic Republic of Dearbornistan!

You may think that this behavior is not happening here in the US because after all we have freedom of speech laws that protect us from a tyranical oppressive government -- wrong!  Look at the peaceful christians handing out literature and the overwhelming police response for "unlawful" behavior?  you decide......

Democrats aligned with radical Islam!

It won’t be long before we hear “Allahu Akbar” at a “Joint Session of Congress”!

I wrote a couple of articles that outlined the current activities of Bill Ayres and Bernardine Dohrn along with Jody Evans (founder of Code Pink) in agitating the unrest in the Middle East between Israel and all those who wish to see her destroyed, as Iran has promised to do.

I also pointed out that this alliance between the “Free Gaza Movement” which the unrepentant terrorist actively attended the early Cairo protests with their Islamic brothers and sisters to breach the blockade of the Gaza Strip by the Israeli Navy. In doing so, they are not only breaking international law but also a host of other laws here in the US by doing so laws that include aiding and abetting terror organizations under US anti-terror laws. I feel the need to remind who are actively aligned with those on the left side of the isle -- Labor Unions – of all stripes (i.e., SIEU, UAW, ILWU etc).

It is only a logical step for unions to support their national leaders who are tied to the hip with the policies of the White House. These national leaders of the union of which I speak are the same ones that, during the 1960’s created the SDS and the Weather Underground and went on to found the SEIU and ACORN.

Now the Longshore union in Oakland is holding their own blockage against Israel here in the US.  There solidarity with their Islamic terror brothers is in full swing.....
Israel has release a video of the peace activists preparing for their bloody voyage. Here are the leaders, in their own words preparing for martyrdom vs. peace.

Now, as a result of Bill Ayres and the Democrats Union thugs, American naval warships have exited the Suez Canal to rendevous with the Israeli navy to confront the Iranian navy which is enroute to the blockade in a show of force to thwart Israels right to defend herself.  The community organizer has taken his "revolution" to the international stage that has been set for a dangerous end game that has the potential to engulf the entire world in war......

Chris Christie for President 2012

The anti-Corzine must first prove his mettle and keep his promises.  Somthing tells me he will do just that and as he does his stock will continue to rise, perhaps to Presidential level.

23 days after elected – a preview of things to come

Honest & Direct and does not genuflect to anyone but the citizens who elected him

Unlike Democrat cowardice, Christie holds multiple town halls in libland to answer brunt questions with honest and brunt answers like he did here with a teacher.

Taking on the judicial activism that Americans are tired of, like the recent California Constitutional Amendment on Gay Marriage passed by the will of the voters now rests in the hands of a few “black robes”.

Christie rejecting his legislature tax hikes on the rich then at the same time over-riding their veto. Can you say “man on a mission”….

The day of reckening…..

Weatherman Bill Ayres latest revolution - II

From the Streets to the schools and back again!

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” – Edmund Burke

To set the stage and show that the Obama Administration officials are on the same page as Hamas, Iran, Hezbolla and not with our long time ally (Israel) -- here we have John O. Brennen (White House Homeland Security Chief) calling “Jerusalem” – “Al Quds” (Arab meaning). This is the same guy who is tasked with the investigations of the Ft. Hood & Christmas Day terror incidents. The speech he gave was on May 19, 2010 just 12 days before the “flotilla” incident.

Keep in mind that the flotilla, according to the White House, MSM and those who hate Israel nothing more than “unarmed peace activists” bringing humanitarian aid to the Gaza strip which is under the control of the terror organization Hamas.

What the White House, MSM and those who hate Israel did not tell you was that 3 days prior to the flotilla, Hamas TV (not to be confused with CNN) featured a Yemeni professor (perhaps a colleague of Professors Ayres & Dohrn) boasting that “"as much as the heroes on the flotilla want to reach Gaza, the option of martyrdom is more desirable to them." while the same day news (Al Jazeera) coverage reported -- "Before Its Departure for Gaza: Activists on Board Chant Intifada Songs and Praise Martyrdom."

So, here in the West the “flotilla” was filled with “peace activists” and all through the Muslim world these activists sang “intifada songs praising martyrdom” and the desired outcome isn’t landing with humanitarian supplies, but becoming martyrs.

While the MSM was “under-reporting” Bill Ayres during the 2008 Presidential campaign of Barrack Obama by focusing the brunt of their articles of the “weatherman underground” bombings across American in the late 60’s and early 70’s they did not dig into his current radical involvement in 2007 and 2008 (with the exception that he is a respected college professor). If the media would have even just scratched the surface (this includes Fox News as well as the bloggers) then we would have learned that Ayres and his wife as well as Jodie Evans of Code Pink were already in the Middle East with the first attempts to “break Israel’s blockade of Gaza” with the “Free Gaza Movement” and in direct collaboration with Hamas. In November 2007 the “Free Gaza Movement” organizers received the following letter from “Palestinian National Authority in Gaza for the Hamas led government”.

In August 2008 just two months after Obama won the Democratic nomination for President, Ayres, Dohrn, Evans (Code Pink founder) and the Free Gaza Movement staged violent protests in Cairo with the intentions of boarding the first successful boat flotilla aimed at breaching the Israeli blockade . Ayres, Dohrn and Evans were not permitted (by Egyptian authorities) to board the ships as they only allowed 100 of the 1,100 “Free Gaza” peace activists agitating the violence. Instead, Dr. Larudee (friend and colleague of Ayres and Dohrn) was allowed to board that day and was given a “hero’s welcome” by Hamas upon landing in Gaza replete with medals and media fanfare (except US media was silent probably due to the Ayres/Obama ties).

As you can see from the photos below, Larudee (second from left) is in full solidarity with Hamas and is wearing not one, but two medals.

Never mind the anti-terror laws for aiding and abetting known terror organizations which Ayres, Dohrn, Evans and the entire American contingent of “Free Gaza Members” who attended this action in August 2008 -- The US Neutrality Act was also violated big time when they set upon the confrontation with the Israeli Navy enforcing the blockade.

The U.S. Neutrality Act provides that:

"Whoever, within the United States, knowingly begins or sets on foot or provides or prepares a means for or furnishes the money for, or takes part in, any military or naval expedition or enterprise to be carried on from thence against the territory or dominion of any foreign prince or state, or of any colony, district, or people with whom the United States is at peace, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both."

Furthermore – “the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is lawful under international law and recognized as such by the U.S. government. In addition, pursuant to the Oslo Accords signed by both Israel and the PLO, the Gaza coastline is under strict control of Israel until a Palestinian state is created.”

“The Free Gaza Movement (FGM)”, which had organized the earlier Gaza flotilla in 2008, raises funds in the U.S. via its website: www.freegaza.org although it remains formally unorganized there. The website explains that the FGM does not have tax-free status in the U.S. and therefore relies upon another anti-Israel organization, the American Educational Alliance, which issues tax receipts on its behalf.

Israel sent a formal letter to Attorney General Holder requesting his office “take all necessary and appropriate actions to uphold the laws of the United States, to investigate those that are organizing the flotilla, money laundering and funding this illegal effort and to enjoin any unlawful activity on the part of the FGM and the American Educational Trust.

The entire letter reads:

June 7, 2010

Attorney General Eric Holder
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530-0001

Sent Via Fax: (202) 307-6777

Re: Violation of the U.S. Neutrality Act, 18 U.S.C. § 960, by Free Gaza Movement

Dear Attorney General Holder,

As you are no doubt aware, this past week a boat flotilla organized by anti-Israeli NGOs and Islamic terrorists set out to provoke the Israel Defense Forces and to violate Israel's military blockade of the Hamas controlled Gaza Strip. The flotilla's efforts resulted in the deaths of 9 armed militants and the serious injuring of numerous Israeli soldiers.

I am writing to bring to your attention to a serious matter regarding the flotilla and what might have been a violation of the U.S. Neutrality Act, 18 U.S.C. § 960, regulations of the Internal Revenue Service and an attempt to aid & abet the Hamas terrorist organization, which has occurred within the United States.

The radical pro-Hamas organization, the Free Gaza Movement ("FGM"), has been raising funds for its extremist activities within the United States. The FGM was one of the driving forces behind past efforts to organize a flotilla to Gaza in 2008, and its members raised funds in the U.S. and directed the current Gaza flotilla campaign from Cyprus. These activities would appear to be a violation of the U.S. Neutrality Act, which provides:

"Whoever, within the United States, knowingly begins or sets on foot or provides or prepares a means for or furnishes the money for, or takes part in, any military or naval expedition or enterprise to be carried on from any thence against the territory or dominion of any foreign prince or state, or of any colony, district, or people with whom the United States is at peace, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both."

This past week U.S. Vice- President Joseph Biden declared that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is lawful and pursuant to international law. The blockade was established in June 2007, after terrorist from the Hamas organization violently took control of the territory and ousted the members of the Palestinian Authority security services. Since that time, Hamas has engaged in a relentless campaign to obtain weapons and explosives and to terrorize Israel's civilian population. In an effort to prevent Hamas from obtaining any additional military equipment and to impose economic pressure on the Hamas leadership in Gaza, the Israeli Security Cabinet imposed a series of sanctions on the Gaza Strip including a coastal blockade that is being implemented by the Israeli navy. The naval blockade is particularly important in light of previous attempts by the Iranian government to transfer weapons to Palestinian militants at sea such as occurred in January 2002 when the Israeli navy seized the "Karine A" ship that was loaded with 50 tons of Iranian supplied weaponry.

Moreover, there are several provisions within the agreements signed by Israel and the Palestinian Authority that grant Israel the right to implement a naval blockade on the Gaza Strip. Specifically, the September 28, 1995 Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip which was signed in Washington D.C., which provides that Israel has "the responsibility for defense against external threats, including for defense against external threats from the sea and from the air." In addition, it was agreed that that foreign vessels would "not approach closer than 12 nautical miles from the coast" unless specifically authorized by Israel. As such, the Israeli blockade on Gaza is lawful and the waters outside of Gaza are legally controlled by Israel.

The FGM has a website at: www.freegaza.org. Those who wish to support the FGM'ts activities, including the organizing and outfitting of the boat flotilla which attempted to engage the Israeli navy and run the Gaza blockade, are asked to donate to the FGM. As the FGM website plainly explains ( http://www.freegaza.org/en/usa-donations ), however, that since the FGM does not "currently have 501(c)3 status" donations to the group will be channeled through the American Educational Trust, the publishers of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, who "have generously agreed to serve as our fiscal sponsor in the United States. Through the American Educational Trust you can make U.S. tax-deductible donations to us either with PayPal or by check." Potential donors are informed that if they "would like to make a U.S. tax-deductible donation to the Free Gaza Movement by check, please make out the check to: "American Educational Trust LE" and write "Free Gaza" in the memo section . . ."

In addition to organizing boat flotilla's that contain weapons and supplies the Israeli government has deemed harmful to its security and which it seeks to smuggle into Gaza which would constitute a violation of the Neutrality Act, it is hard to believe that the IRS would authorize an outlaw organization like the FGM, which does not appear to be incorporated nor have tax-free status in the United States to have another organization like the American Educational Trust issue tax receipt to donors on its behalf. This is a clear case of money laundering by the FGM and the American Educational Trust and an effort to defraud the regulations of the IRS. It is both the FGM and the American Educational Trust, as well as its donors, who are knowingly engaging in this fraud on the IRS.

Nevertheless, despite the clear unequivocal policy of the United States to support Israel's right to control the security of the territorial waters around Gaza and to isolate Hamas from external support, the FGM and the American Educational Trust are attempting to undermine the foreign policy of both the United States and Israel, and attempting to aid and abet the Hamas terrorist organization, by raising money to smuggle in weapons and supplies in direct violation of the Interim Agreement regarding foreign vessels and to undermine Israel's sovereign authority.

The FGM and the American Educational Trust has openly soliciting financial support in the United States for its hostile expedition against a friendly nation in violation of the U.S. Neutrality Act. As such, the actions of the FGM and the American Educational Trust are nothing short of an attempt to violate the laws of State of Israel and to engage in conduct that has the effect of undermining the national security of a U.S. ally.

Consequently, I respectfully request that your office take all necessary and appropriate actions to uphold the laws of the United States, to investigate those that are organizing the flotilla, money laundering and funding this illegal effort and to enjoin any unlawful activity on the part of the FGM and the American Educational Trust.

Thank you,

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, Esq.


As you can see the “Free Gaza Movement” is working hand in hand with Hamas to break the blockade to allow the free importation of weapons which Hamas fully intends to use against Israel. Bill Ayres is no long content with his scholarly and respectable teaching position any longer because he is engaging in “jihad” against Israel and by extension the United States which he has long desired to overthrow. The involvement of Obama’s long time friends and radicals begs a bigger question – Is Obama aware? Of course he is!

Coming (oil cleanup gear) and Going (evacuation of New Orleans)

Democrat failures on both ends of a catastrophe

When hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans the Democrats and the MSM severely criticized the Bush Administration for the Governments failure to act or respond to the disaster. The State of Louisiana at the time was in complete Democrat control at the State level with Governor Blanco and at the City of New Orleans level with Mayor Ray Nagin. The blaming of the Federal response, though warranted does not diminish the lives lost because of the local government failure to implement evacuations of their own people and 1,100 deaths occurred as a result. Those deaths are on Blanco and Nagin. In the case of Katrina the Democrats failed to get people out.

Per congress investigation of Katrina:

The failure of local, state, and federal governments to respond more effectively to Katrina — which had been predicted in theory for many years, and forecast with startling accuracy for five days — demonstrates that whatever improvements have been made to our capacity to respond to natural or man-made disasters, four and half years after 9/11, we are still not fully prepared.

Despite adequate warning 56 hours before landfall, Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin delayed ordering a mandatory evacuation in New Orleans until 19 hours before landfall.

The failure to order timely mandatory evacuations, Mayor Nagin’s decision to shelter but not evacuate the remaining population, and decisions of individuals led to an incomplete evacuation. The ncomplete pre-landfall evacuation led to deaths, thousands of dangerous rescues, and horrible conditions for those who remained.

Now, the Gulf oil rig disaster the same thing is happening but differently. Now we have the local governments controlled by Republicans who are hamstrung by Democrats controlling Washington to get responders into the area (vs. evacuating). Coming and going the Democrats have been consistent in their inaction and negligence to handle a catastrophe from the local to the federal levels…….

Weatherman Bill Ayres latest revolution -- Part I

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” – Edmund Burke

From the Streets to the schools and back again - a radicals journey!

Try to guess the location of these photo’s. I will give you a hint – It is the best kept secret of the Main Street Media. The implanted population are huddled into “concentration-like camps” (according to the MSM) under military oppression by Western back governments, they are also starving with little or no medical supplies and are dying by the droves of malnutrition and preventable medical diseases. The UN is their greatest champion for liberation from the terrible conditions they have to endure (see photo’s above) at the hands of their oppressors.

If you guessed gaza, you guessed right. This is the oppression that Barrack Obama’s buddy and unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayres is currently (since at least 2007) and personally made his life goal of ending, in the name of social justice. It isn’t bad enough he literally got away with murder during his “fugitive days” days and go onto become, in Obama’s words, “a respected professor”, he now is actively working with overseas Islamic terrorists to ignite a powder keg in the Palestinian territories. The flotilla that Israeli commando’s stormed was the next step in their plan which Iran has now seized with the next waive of “humanitarians” with Iranian Navy escorts. Thanks Bill for your concern, but you should be in a jail cell. You were not successful in bringing down the United States government in the 1960’s through you “weathermen” terror cell. You were not successful in transforming the minds of today’s youth through your socialist educational efforts so you had to go and export your “revolution” to the world stage and ignite a possible WWIII instead.

The mean streets of violent radicalism

There is a man who is the embodiment of evil and is enjoying the freedoms of America while he plots and acts to bring her down. He is as cunning as the devil as he has a slippery nature about him as he has eluded law enforcements grasp since the early 1960’s for terrorism crimes that includes the murder of a police officer in the 1970’s in which he is still the prime suspect and remains unsolved.

His name is William Ayres and we know him best as the “unrepentant terrorist”.

We first heard about him during the 2008 Presidential campaign as a friend of Barrack Obama and it was in Ayres home that Obama kicked off his first political campaign in the State of Illinois. When the ties to Ayres became too hot politically, Obama explained to the public that “he was only 8 years old when Ayres committed acts of terror” and then also glossed over Ayres (the adult friend) when Obama said “Ayers is a tenured professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a ‘respected advisor' to Mayor Daley on School Reform".

Of course, the unrepentant Ayres didn’t help Obama much when he boasted “Guilty as hell, free as a bird -- America is a great country" when describing his terror activities that went unpunished due to technicalities in the law.

There has been much criticism of the MSM for their lack of investigative reporting surrounding this terrorist and his close affiliation to Obama and what has been reported during the election and quite frankly since has been about his days on the lam in the 60’s and 70’s. We of course have also been treated to just how respectable he is now, being a Professor and all. What we have not heard though is his current terror related activities that brings us to the “flotilla” incident and the escalation of tension between Iran and Israel. Ayres, no longer satisfied with the mundane task of indoctrinating our youth into little brown shirts he has returned to his taste for blood and revolution that he likes most and is working alongside Hamas with the “Free Gaza Movement”.

The birth of a radical progressive educator

Ed Lasky of The American Thinker put it best in an article about Ayres when he wrote – “Ayers was a subversive when he was with the Weatehr Undergound. He is still a subversive, but does his work behind the scenes and with a broader canvass to draw upon. He no longer may lead small gang of bombers but is reaching and shaping a much larger number of people that capitalism is not only bad, but should be fought.”

Ed Lasky of course is speaking of the influence of Ayres over young adults in the college system of indoctrination.

Returning to the streets again

He is no longer patient about the re-education of our youth in the mold of his early revolutionary dreams of violence, Ayres and his wife are back on the front lines of their personal war against freedom with their personal involvement with the “Free Gaza Movement” and the recent “flotilla” incident.

In a letter to the President that was sent by Senators’ Reid and McConnell they urged him to support a broader form of investigation than what the UN is proposing with the incident with Israel and the “flotilla”. The gist of the letter states --

Israel is our strongest ally in the Middle East and a vibrant democracy. Israel is also a partner to the United States on military and intelligence issues in this critical region. That is why it is our national interest to support Israel at a moment when Israel faces multiple threats from Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and the current regime in Iran. Israel’s opponents have developed clever diplomatic and tactical ploys to challenge its international standing, whether the effort to isolate Israel at the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review conference or the recent effort to breach the naval blockade around Gaza.

We fully support Israel’s right to self-defense. In response to thousands of rocket attacks on Israel from Hamas terrorists in Gaza, Israel took steps to prevent items which could be used to support these attacks from reaching Gaza. Israel’s naval blockade, which is legal under international law, allows Israel to keep dangerous goods from entering Gaza by sea. The intent of the measures is to protect Israel, while allowing humanitarian aid into Gaza.

Late last month when Israel learned that groups operating in Turkey wanted to challenge its blockade of Gaza, Israel made every effort to ensure that all humanitarian aid reached Gaza without needlessly precipitating a confrontation. Israeli forces were able to safely divert five of the six ships challenging the blockage. However, video footage shows that the Israeli commandos who arrived on the sixth ship, which was owned by the Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation (the IHH), were brutally attacked with iron rods, knives, and broken glass. They were forced to respond to that attack and we regret the loss of life that resulted.

We are deeply concerned about the IHH’s role in this incident and have additional questions about Turkey and any connections to Hamas. The IHH is a member of a group of Muslim charities, the Union of Good, which was designated by the US Treasury Department as a terrorist organization. The Union of Good was created by and strongly supports Hamas, which has been designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the US State Department. We recommend that your administration consider whether the IHH should be put on the list of foreign terrorist organizations, after an examination by the intelligence community, the State Department, and the Treasury Department.

We commend the action you took to prevent the adoption of an unfair United Nations Security Council resolution, which would have represented a rush to judgment by the international community. We also deplore the actions of the United Nations Human Rights Council which, once again, singled out Israel. Israel has announced its intention to promptly carry out a thorough investigation of this incident and has the right to determine how its investigation is conducted. In the meantime, we ask you to stand firm in the future at the United Nations Security Council and to use your veto power, if necessary, to prevent any similar biased or one-sided resolutions from passing.

This letter urging the President to “hold the line” at the UN while a meaningful investigation is conducted is absolutely warranted and we should use our “veto power” to prevent the UN from further adverse action once again against Israel. This is a welcomed development coming from our elected leaders in Washington. More important though is the credible statement that is now on the record that the backers of the “flotilla” are and have been found to be collaborating with terrorist organizations (IHH & Hamas).

Furthermore, the conflict of interest that the UN has with the IHH is typical as many of their organizations are tied to the hip with terror and it is no different with the IHH because they are a member of ECOSOC in a “consultative status”. In other words they have the ear of the UN as an NGO.

Israel has announced it is holding its own investigation into the matter while the UN conducts their Kangaroo court. The immediate MSM response was overwhelmingly in support of the “flotilla was manned by unarmed peace activist” angle in which the Israeli commando’s opened fired on the kumbaya peaceniks. Of course, Israel was smart and had a complete and comprehensive video log of the mission because they knew what the World of public opinion would predictably do, which they did. In fact the media bias against Israel once again had a prominent news organization (Reuters) doctoring their photo’s to give the impression that 1) the Israeli commando’s were not bloody and 2) the armed peace activists were “unarmed”. The Israeli video contradicts the MSM version.

There is a lot of disinformation being spoon fed by the MSM to the world over this incident. They would have us believe that it was a humanitarian mission and Israel was a brutish aggressor that murdered, in cold blood, nine unarmed activists. Take for instance the information on “freegaza.org” (organizer and participant in the incident):

“We partners in the Freedom Flotilla would like to offer our deepest sympathy to the people of Turkey and particularly to the nine families who have lost their brothers, sons and fathers. We have been proud and honored to work with the Foundation for Human Rights & Freedoms & Humanitarian Relief (IHH) and respect its track record of humanitarian missions worldwide.

IHH was one of the first charitable organizations to send in teams of doctors to Haiti after the earthquake. Their outreach and aid to impoverished and traumatized people is based on doing the right thing and not on religion, ethnicity or nationality. www.ihh.org.tr

They are a member of ECOSOC, one of only 3000 organizations granted consultative status to the UN. http://www.un.org/esa/coordination/ngo/

To be eligible for consultative status, an NGO must have:

• A democratically adopted constitution
• The authority to speak for its members
• A representative structure
• Appropriate mechanisms of accountability and democratic and transparent decision-making processes.

The basic resources of the organization must be derived in the main part from contributions of the national affiliates or other components or from individual members.

In the past few days, Israel and its apologists around the world have demonized this charity. Instead of facing the fact that the Israeli navy committed crimes of murder, maiming, hijacking and theft, they are blaming the victim. It is time for all of us who believe to stand up and shout …………………….


Contrary to “freegaza” we (informed public) are not “all IHH” nor are we “apologists” for Israel.

They claim that the Israeli Navy committed crimes of murder, maiming, hijacking and theft – let’s consider this charge with facts!

Vice President Joe Biden asserts that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is lawful and pursuant to international law!

The blockade was a result of Hamas’ attempts to obtain Iranian weapons at sea after the 2002 seizing of the “Karine A” that was loaded with 50 tons of Iranian weapons.

On September 28, 1995 an agreement was signed regarding Israels rights to protection against terror when the Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip was signed in Washington D.C., which provides that Israel has "the responsibility for defense against external threats, including for defense against external threats from the sea and from the air." In addition, it was agreed that that foreign vessels would "not approach closer than 12 nautical miles from the coast" unless specifically authorized by Israel. As such, the Israeli blockade on Gaza is lawful and the waters outside of Gaza are legally controlled by Israel.

This agreement was signed during the Clinton Administration! The position of the United States that gives Israel the rights, to ensure their national security, to control their territorial waters around Gaza, specifically containing Hamas and their ability for external military and weapons support, is unequivocal. Just in case anyone needs to be reminded, Hamas is deemed a “terrorist organization” by the United States and abroad.

In August 2008, the “freegaza” organization was successful in breaking through Israel’s blockade. When they landed in Gaza they were met by the leaders of Hamas and given medals. Yet, this information about their Hamas meeting and celebration was never intended for public consumption.

Now that Bill Ayres the unrepentant terrorist has exported his "community organizing" and social justice brand of violent "pacifism" to the Middle East, Iran has picked up the cause and will now provide Naval support for the next blocade action.  The ships have already departed their ports and the big question is -- what is Israels next step?

Billboard of the Year - Compliments of "Feed your ADHD" website

Political violence Democrat style

Remember when Nanci Pelosi got teary eyed and said "we have take responsibility for our actions and our words"?  She of course was talking about "right wing" tea partiers and their dangerous ways.

Here is the clip of her teary-eyed lament:

Now, since that time and actually even before that speech on hate and how it is reminiscent of the 1970's violence she personally witnessed the only recorded violence has come from the left.  Isn't it ironic that the clip below that caught the NC Congressman assaulting a young man for asking the simple hate filled question of "do you fully support the Obama agenda" when he was exiting a fundraiser for, um, er, Nanci Pelosi?

Now, compare how a Republican is ambushed, surrounded by the opposition and how he reacts to the situation -- you decide where the violence rhetoric and intimidation comes.....

Ayres, Dohrn & Jodie Evans are still active with terrorism!

Jodie Evans with Obama

In an article written by William Kristol (Weekly Standard) it was learned that the Obama Administration has given the green light for the US to push the UN to hold an official investigation of Israel and their “excessive use of force”.

The article points out that once again, Obama has placed his hatred of Israel above the facts and once again sides with our enemies over our long term ally.

The precedent it will set will damage our own “war on terror” efforts because the incident was minute in comparison to anything Israel has done in the past in protecting their citizens thus our troops will undoubtedly be held to the same “low standard” of conflict and deemed criminal.

The UN investigation will be solely focused on Israel and will not scrutinize Turkey or the IHH for their involvement or behavior.

Since the article was published and the facts surrounding the IHH and Turkey were amplified the White House felt the need to respond directly to William Kristols criticism. The response said this:

“The White House has suggested in the past that it supported international participation in an Israeli investigation, but a shift to the kind of international inquiry supported by many of Israel's critics would be a dramatic one, and a White House official brushed off Kristol's flotation.

The White House pushed, immediately after the incident, to downgrade a planned resolution condemning Israel to a vague presidential statement that didn't directly target the Jewish State.

The White House official said the administration continues to support "an Israeli-led investigation into the flotilla incident that is prompt, credible, impartial, and transparent."

"We are open to different ways of ensuring the credibility of this Israeli-led investigation, including international participation, and have been in intensive talks with our Israeli partners in the past few days on how to move forward," said the official. "We know of no resolution that will be debated at the UN on the flotilla investigation next week." – politico (Ben Smith)

powerlineblog.com has now reported the following:

Senators Reid and McConnell have in addition circulated a joint letter to Obama for signature by their colleagues. The letter raises the role of the IHH in the incident and recommends investigation of the IHH for inclusion among the designated state sponsors of terror. The letter further states: "[W]e ask you to stand firm in the future at the United Nations Security Council and to use your veto power, if necessary, to prevent any similar biased or one-sided resolutions [such as the UN Human Rights Council's] from passing.”

What does Obama fear from a full fledged international investigation and why does this administration, in a knee jerk reaction to William Kristol’s article call the Israeli Investigation un-credit worthy? Here is why – Long time friend and unrepentant American leftist terrorist Bill Ayers and his Wife Bernadine Dohrn along with Code Pink founder Jodie Evans are directly involved with the IHH (not from afar in America but on the ground in Egypt). Here is there involvement:

“The group behind the Gaza flotilla that engaged in deadly clashes with Israeli commandos today counts among its top supporters the friends and associates of President Barack Obama, namely the founders of the Weather Underground terrorist organization, William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, as well as Jodie Evans, the leader of the radical activist organization Code Pink.

Earlier today, Israeli navy commandos raided the six-ship flotilla, encountering heavy resistance and live fire from the activists. Several activists were killed and dozens of others were reportedly injured, as were several of the Israeli commandos.

The flotilla was organized by the Free Gaza Movement, a coalition of leftist human rights activists and pro-Palestinian groups engaged in attempts to break a blockade imposed by Israel on the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

Ayers, Dohrn and Evans' Code Pink have led several recent Free Gaza Movement initiatives, including attempted marches into the Gaza Strip. Dorhn was in the Middle East just last month on behalf of the movement.

Ayers and Dohrn were close associates for years with President Obama, while Evans was a fundraiser and financial bundler for Obama's presidential campaign.

The hot new best-seller, "The Manchurian President," by Aaron Klein reveals inside story on Team Obama and its members. Now available autographed at WND's Superstore!

In January, wnd.com reported Ayers, Dohrn and Evans were involved in provoking chaos on the streets of Egypt in an attempt to enter Gaza with the Free Gaza Movement to join in solidarity with the territory's population and leadership.

The three helped to stir riots after the Egyptian government refused to allow a large number of protesters to enter neighboring Gaza. Eventually, the protesters accepted an Egyptian offer of allowing about 100 marchers into Gaza. Once in the territory, those marchers were reportedly met on the Gaza side by Hamas' former Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.

At the time of the march, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., wrote a letter in support of a "humanitarian delegation from Massachusetts" to Gaza. Members of Ayers', Dohrn and Evans' group documented on their blogs how Kerry's letter was used at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo while attempting to pressure Egypt to let their group into Gaza.

Images of the letter were also posted on the Electronic Intifada website run by Ali Abunimah, who was with Evans' group in Egypt and who, WND previously reported, spoke at pro-Palestinian events in the 1990s alongside Obama. In one such event, a 1999 fundraiser for Palestinian "refugees," Abunimah recalled introducing Obama on stage.

Kerry's office previously met with Code Pink members, WND has learned. Sarah Roche-Mahdi of Code Pink also is a member of the United for Peace and Justice Palestine Task Force, which met with Kerry's staffers.

Kerry last year became the most senior U.S. politician to visit the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, although at the time he did not meet with Hamas leaders.

Dohrn later wrote on a blog that she was briefly detained at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo following the January protests there by her group: "Bill and I went to the American Embassy at 10 a.m. and asked to see the ambassador. We were ushered into a holding pen a block away from the embassy building where we joined 35 people already there, surrounded by Egyptian soldiers," she wrote.

Deadly clashes

Israeli Naval Forces intercepted the flotilla today attempting to break the maritime closure of the Gaza Strip.

An Israel Defense Forces spokesperson told WND commandos boarded the ships after numerous warnings from Israel requesting the ships redirect toward the Israeli port of Ashdod, where they would be able to unload their aid supplies, which could then be transferred to the Gaza Strip after undergoing security inspections.

During the boarding of one of the ships, the Marmara, activists onboard attacked IDF naval personnel with live fire and light weaponry including knives and clubs, the IDF spokesperson said.

"The demonstrators had clearly prepared their weapons in advance for this specific purpose," said the spokesperson. "As a result of this life-threatening and violent activity, naval forces first employed riot dispersal means, followed by live fire.

"IDF naval personnel encountered severe violence, including use of weaponry prepared in advance in order to attack them," said the spokesperson.

The IDF released a YouTube video clearly showing activists attacking Israeli commandos, including attacks with live fire.

Close Obama associates

Evans formed Code Pink, a far-left activist organization, in 2002 to protest America's war in Iraq. The group previously met with Hamas and with leaders of the Taliban. Evans was a fundraiser and financial bundler for Obama's presidential campaign.

Abunimah traveled in some of the same political circles as Obama in the 1990s. Abunimah previously described meeting with Obama at a fundraiser at the home of Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, reportedly a former PLO activist. Khalidi was also a close associate of Obama.

"[Obama] came with his wife. That's where I had a chance to really talk to him," Abunimah recalled. "It was an intimate setting. He convinced me he was very aware of the issues [and] critical of U.S. bias toward Israel and lack of sensitivity to Arabs. ... He was very supportive of U.S. pressure on Israel."

According to quotes obtained by Gulf News, Abunimah recalled a 2004 meeting in a Chicago neighborhood while Obama was running for his Senate seat. Abunimah quoted Obama telling him "warmly" he was sorry that "I haven't said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race."

"I'm hoping when things calm down, I can be more up front," Abunimah reportedly quoted the senator as saying.

Abunimah said Obama urged him to "keep up the good work" at the Chicago Tribune, where Abunimah contributed guest columns that were highly critical of Israel.

Ayers, meanwhile, became a name in last year's presidential campaign when it was disclosed the radical worked closely with Obama for years.

Ayers helped launch Obama's political career with a fundraiser in his home. Obama served on the board of a Chicago nonprofit alongside Ayers. The terrorist later hired Obama to serve as chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a job Obama later cited as experience that helped qualify him to run for public office.

While at the CAC, Obama and Ayers both granted funds to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN.

WND columnist Jack Cashill has produced a series of persuasive arguments that it was Ayers who ghostwrote Obama's award-winning autobiography, "Dreams from My Father."

Ayers and Dohrn were two of the main founders of the Weather Underground, which bombed the New York City Police headquarters in 1970, the Capitol in 1971 and the Pentagon in 1972. The group was responsible for some 30 bombings aimed at destroying the defense and security infrastructures of the U.S.

Characterizing the Weather Underground as "an American Red Army," Ayers summed up the organization's ideology: "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents."

"Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon," Ayers recalled in his 2001 memoir, "Fugitive Days." "The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them."

Ayers brandished his unrepentant radicalism for years later, as evidenced by his now notorious 2001 interview with the New York Times, published one day after the 9/11 attacks, in which he stated, "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough."

Ayers posed for a photograph accompanying the New York Times piece that showed him stepping on an American flag. He said of the U.S.: "What a country. It makes me want to puke."

So the President will be embarrassed when the truth of who was behind the flotilla eventually comes out and traced back to his door. I find it chilling that the letter that Reid and McConnell sent to the President (from above: “Senators Reid and McConnell have in addition circulated a joint letter to Obama for signature by their colleagues. The letter raises the role of the IHH in the incident and recommends investigation of the IHH for inclusion among the designated state sponsors of terror”) wishes to designate the IHH amongst terrorist organizations. This puts Obama in a pickle situation as his three friends (Ayers, Dohrn and Evans) have all been personally active with that organization directly. This will mean they were complicit in terror activities, again!
