So with the pig-in-a-poke health care bill still shape-shifting, Obama needed to find a way to garner support. Unfortunately, President Obama is reaching out to America's enemies, whether intended or not, and I could not honestly say I' m sure it is the latter.
Enter Eric Holder, left-wing Attorney General, who has embarked on a Crusade against the CIA, much to the chagrin of CIA Chief Panetta. I was wrong about Panetta, accusing him of marching in lockstep with the Obama plan. But reports say that Leon Panetta has ripped into Obama administration officials with a fury and a vengeance that can only come from a man betrayed by his leadership. Another prominent Democrat, Dianne Feinstein of California, has also come out in strong opposition to the president's plans to put the CIA in the docket. Obama's pretending that it is entirely Holder's choice to prosecute against the CIA, but that is a complete crock, rather like the crock that would have you believe the Obama administration knew nothing beforehand about the release of the Lockerbie Bomber after only 7 years in a cushy Scottish jail.
We all know that the Obama administration has rolled out the red carpet to disaster in this (fill in the blank) ________________ (reversal, lie, deception, failure of heart, response to lunatic fringe....
American military personnel have been subjected to far harsher treatment during their training than the mass casualty murderers committed to a global terror campaign. It's no coincidence that few top Obama officials (with some exceptions) have ever served anyone but themselves, let alone in military service.

Question: The "caller" said that Dirrigo was "psychotic and had a sexual addiction." Did the caller also say "sexual offender"? Did anyone ask in what sense the caller said Dirrigo had a sexual addiction? Did the Sheriff's office notify the codes officer? Did the codes officer document any such reports. Damn right, the questions should not have stopped there.

I'm summoning doctors to my house today--just so I can consult with them about Kennedy-Care.
Ironic that Obama's strongest support in the Afghan war effort are Republicans, but most want him to stop posing and get on with the business. The president did approve more troops for that effort but it is a open question as to whether the President did that as a political tactic or a war tactic.
We can't let the Taliban open up a Homeland For Terror, and more troops would help. We hope the commanders aren't afraid to ask for them, due to political considerations. The Taliban owns about 1/3 of the country and helps its financing efforts by poisoning the world with cheap heroin. Of course, American and European drug users are "helping" in this great Taliban push but what do they care?

Hey, if all the King's horses and all the King's men can't cut bait even with the help of the MSM, and the people in Town Halls are still shouting about Palin's accusations of "death panels," then it's clear that the Barracuda has put some blood in the water and it ain't her own.
There is nothing more important than protecting the identities of CIA officers. So I need everybody to be clear: We will protect your identities and your security as you vigorously pursue your missions.”
Not. At least not since the Valerie Plame incident had liberal panties in a bunch. Now the CIA has a target on its back, a target put there by mustachioed Eric Holder. Not surprisingly, we didn’t hear a peep out of the Obamanuts when the New York Times released the name of a CIA agent who had interrogated Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
And just last Friday, according to Bret Stephens, “the Washington Post reported that the Justice Department is looking into allegations that military defense attorneys for top al Qaeda detainees had shown their clients photgrpaphs of CIA officers and contractors.”
Some of the pictures were taken surreptitiously right outside the CIA officers’ homes, according to the Post story. We’re really in la-la land now, as the ACLU photo expedition is called the “John Adams Project.” Quelle patriotique!

Nothing has changed except that things are worse, much worse. Obama has his own plans for ending the war—he intends to lose it. He intends to waste whatever gains have been made in Iraq and is right now thinking of a great sentient self-pitying way to abandon and lose Afghanistan.
Foremost, he has given the stamp of approval for mustachioed Eric Holder to put the CIA operatives on a rack and stretch them for partisan political reasons. That’s what it’s come to. A lot of noise hiding a great silence and lots of rats scurrying in the woodwork.
This is not to say that President Obama and Eric Holder do not have an exalted purpose in calling CIA agents onto the carpet and damaging their reputations, hurting their families, and permanently muddying national security objectives. For the Obama-Nationals, publicizing the CIA interrogations is merely the culmination of long months of political strategy beginning with Obama’s condemnations of the Iraq war as a Junior Senator and carrying over to his catch and release program for Guantanamo prisoners, and the extension of writs of habeas corpus to people who want to kill me. Kill you too, maybe. There is no doubt that this is Eric Holder’s “finest hour.”
Don’t ask the Obama administration to explain why they’re doing this, however. You’re likely to be facing blank stares. And don’t expect to hear the entire story of the interrogations. You will be spoon-fed bit by bit only the information al Megrahi, Nashiri, and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed want you to hear. A gunshot went off in the room next door. A man carried an electric drill into the room and a terrorist spilled his guts. Anyone who knows anything about America would know right away that they weren’t going to be drilled or executed. But these terrorist creeps, so hate-filled and psychotic, didn’t know that because they often did such things themselves. Didn’t Khalid Sheikh Mohammad boast that he’d sawed the head off of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl himself, and distributed the video widely on the internet?
Meanwhile, the Obama offensive against our troops and intelligence service continues as they huddle together to figure out how to lose Iraq and Afghanistan. More Gitmo killers are released by Obama and return to the battlefield to kill more American troops. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs says that Afghanistan is deteriorating while Obama fiddles. General McChrystal needs more troops in Afghanistan and Obama goes off to Hyannis Port. Obama’s grand anti-war plan for Iraq seems to be a matter of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. The situation is dire.

Even worse, one of the men charged with interfering with the vote was an election monitor. This was not an isolated incident, nor was Pennsylvania the only state where voters were kept from the polls by intimidation. The Obama campaign knew full well that their supporters in the caucus states were putting untoward physical and psychological pressures on voters who showed up for the caucuses. Indeed, many did not show up precisely for this reason. Apparently, Obama and his team feel that a bit of intimidation is a sort of payback for years of discrimination in the pre- Civil Rights Act years.
There will be another election in 3 1/2 years and these same forces of voter intimidation will now be emboldened. Perhaps they will have an even greater sense of entitlement. If Eric Holder wants to convince people that the Obama administration represents the interest of all the people, he should shave off his little Hitler mustache and kick the asses of these voter intimidation thugs.
"I'm from the government and I'm here to help.".
Something to keep in mind as this administration winds up its plans for the advanced nanny-state.

If the bullet lodged in the floor, then it was pointed downward, passing through the football player's leg and then hitting the floor. Burris is the sacrificial victim of Mayor Blooomberg's well-known anti-gun crusades. Burris shouldn't have been playin' at being a gangsta' but 2 years borders on gun-control-mania-psychosis of the severest kind. Surely, New York legal officials have better to do than criminalizing football players. A less obsessive-compulsive political system would , make him do 3 months, and release him on parole for the rest of the time.
Well, maybe if he was more like Troy Davis and in a scuffle when a cop got killed, Burris could have people like President Carter and organizations like Amnesty International pitching for him.
"I've been dealing with the U.S. government for over 20 years now (in this matter)and I can tell you that this did not happen without the complicity of the administration."
The translation is a little tattered and inexact but that was the man's meaning. He didn't mince words. He wasn't happy and neither were the families of the 25 Syracuse University students who were murdered along with hundreds of others on that fateful day.
So what reason was given for the release of miscreant Al Megrahi? Compassion, of course. The meagre little vermin is supposed to have prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is slow growing, and the swine Megrahi may be enjoying himself well beyond the 3 month prediction of his death. Certainly, he will be succored by his family and other America-haters.
Insosfar as the Americans and the murdered American children are concerned, Al Megrahi showed much compassion for them in planting a the bomb that killed them all and some Scottish citizens on the ground.
The Obama administration should go well beyond its present statements. It is no coincidence or accident that the release did not occur while Bush was president. Had this occurred, Mr. Bush would of course have been accused of playing oil politics. Of course, Obama's team can be accused of that. After all, they have repeatedly informed us of how high-minded and noble are their motivations.
May there be a curse upon the Scottish judge who released Al Megrahi. May his life be forever damned, and the same for those who applaud the release. Not only did they murder the passengers but they murdered the futures of all the families and friends of the victims. And for what? It can't be asked enough...for what? Ask the question again and again. Make them explain so that we can recognize them and what they are.
The murder of 270 people gets you seven years in jail.

That's a pant-load, if there ever was one. People who get Medicare must be "covered" through the process of being employed and paying FICA and Medicare taxes for X number of years. So when they turn 65 or, if they develop a life-threatening disability, they become entitled to Medicare. It's based on W-O-R-K, anathema to some in the Obama camp who demagogue the issue by offering a "Free Public Plan.

Hello, Hello? ….Are you there Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee?
It was a great town hall meeting held by the Texas congresswoman. A cancer victim was in the midst of asking a very important question when the politician’s phone rang. The questioner got no response as Jackson-Lee shift position of her cell-phone around her face to get better reception. What with those noisy, pesky right wing people with questions about health insurance, how’s a simple Congresswoman going to order lunch.
No, it’s likely she wasn’t ordering lunch, nor an appointment with her hairdresser either. I don’t know who she was talking to on the phone, actually, but I know who the questioner was talking to.
Can you hear me now?

But in awarding the Medal of Freedom to Mr. Milk, Barack Obama seemed to have watched the Shawn Penn movie or listened to the public TV version that characteried Harvey Milk as a hero and martyr. It's true that Harvey Milk was possessed of great political skill and did a great deal to promote gay rights, but the martyr part bugs me out. Harvey Milk wasn't killed because he was a gay man. In fact, he and Dan White were, for a while, quite friendly. White was a hero of sorts, at least as much a hero as was Harvey Milk. Perhaps more--he was a decorated Vietnam vet and well-liked until he began that slipping-down life.
Frankly, there was a great deal of political intrigue in the city council of San Francisco at the time. I'd tell you how I know but you wouldn't believe me. Anyway, it's mostly a matter of record for those who would care to look. Dan White was on the city council, resigned for a week, and then wanted his job back. Moscone acceded to his request but Harvey Milk saw the chance to appoint another more liberal city council member to take White's place.
Dan White was having problems, personally and financially, as were many Vietnam veterans of that era. But he was a good council member,much liked by everyone, a common man who got along with anyone. But he didn't understand the "sophisticated" power politics of the gay community and liberal society in San Francisco. He wasn't long out of the war. He should have been able to handle it but he wasn't. Mayor Moscone was persuaded by Harvey Milk that Dan White should go. That's when he snapped, slipping into Harvey Milk's office and George Moscone's--shooting them dead.
I called Dan White's home that day, then I called Moscone's office. The place was wild, chaotic, cacaphonic. I talked to a woman, probably an aide, in Moscone's office while he lay dead on the floor, and there was much screaming, and then she also had to hang up and move on.
I'm okay with Harvey Milk being honored for he didn't deserve to die. But there were no heroes and no villains in that business or they were all one and the same.
Senator Specter seems not to understand HOuse Bill 3200, judging from his Town Hall yesterday. I expect that Senator CAsey couldn't explain it to anyone either, not without spending the rest of his term studying it. I sent him a letter, anyway. His web site indicates he's a staunch supporter of the President's scam. I asked that he should oppose the bill but he'll probably continue to support it. We're talking major Democratic Party lockstep here.
I doubt that God could comprehend this bill, and if God did, He would vote against it.

But maybe the growing Town Hall protests aren’t made of astro-turf, and maybe people are really pissed off at a whole raft of overbearing government actions taking place under the Obama administration. With all the billions being tossed around without accountability, fraud is on the increase as dot.orgs sprout up everywhere to channel off public moneys and pocketing it.
No one is looking, that’s for sure, and while dollars are being stolen in every direction, and while President Obama peddles rationed medical care, he refuses to support tort reform or to limit lawyers from suing doctors for everything they are worth, and may be worth in the future. So goes “health insurance cost reform” under the Obama administration.
The most disgusting people of all are those, like Paul Krugman, who say that resistance to the overbearing power of government and a preference for collectivist rather than individual rights is “racist” or, as Chris Matthews put it “because of the way Obama looks.”
Fight the power of today's Washington, people. Fight the power.

And why is the Obama administration and the DNC trying to stifle debate and dialogue regarding any of its plans? An open discussion is exactly what’s needed before Rahm Emmanual and Barack Obama go marching the U.S. budget off a cliff while imagining a health care system that is neither defined, properly studied, nor revealed to voters.
