Re: Most Offensive Fraud on Planet asks for "soul searching'

Leave the man alone! What about all the black shootings of white folks that never make the news! The hypocrisy is so blatant and absolutely astounding. They want wan to use the resources of the Federal government which are un limited to use against this single American taxpayer....Holder is a racist who hates white people along with  Al and Jesse who see dollar signs in this matter. They are hypocrites.....did they ever go after OJ Simpson when a predominately black jury acquitted that murder? Where were the white riots in protest to that injustice? Oh, we all had to get up the next day and go to work.....no time to riot, and burn, and destroy, and steal as these current protesters are doing. It's been a long journey from my days of intergrating schools in the south when the schools were closed to this position.....but I want everyone dealt with in a fair and equitable manner and it is is not happening today!

Obama asks for 'soul searching' after Trayvon Martin shooting

July 19, 2013 2:32 pm

/ The Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- Looking for positive lessons to draw from the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, President Barack Obama said Friday the nation needs to do some "soul-searching," look for ways to bolster African-American boys and examine state and local laws to see if they encourage confrontations like the one in Florida.

"Where do we take this?" Obama wondered aloud in an impromptu appearance in the White House briefing room. "How do we learn some lessons from this and move in a positive direction?"

The president said it's time "for all of us to some soul searching," but he also said it's generally not productive when politicians try to orchestrate a conversation.

On the positive side, he said race relations in the United States actually are getting better Looking at his own daughters and their interactions with friends, the president said, "They're better than we are. They're better than we were."

The president declined to wade into the detail of legal questions about the Florida case, saying, "Once the jury's spoken, that's how our system works."

But he said state and local laws, such as Florida's "stand your ground" statute, need a close look.

Obama said it would be useful "to examine some state and local laws to see if they are designed in such a way that they may encourage the kinds of confrontation" that led to Martin's death. He questioned whether a law that sends the message that someone who is armed "has the right to use those firearms even if there is a way for them to exit from a situation" really promotes the peace and security that people want.

And he raised the question of whether Martin himself, if he had been armed, "could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk" and shot neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman if he felt threatened when being followed.

Obama's appearance marked his first extended comments on the Martin case since Zimmerman was acquitted last weekend of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in Martin's death last year. Jurors found that Zimmerman was acting in self-defense when he shot the unarmed black teenager. Zimmerman identifies himself as Hispanic.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has said the Justice Department has an open investigation into the case. The department is looking into whether Zimmerman violated Martin's civil rights.

Obama, who early on had said that if he had a son, the boy would have looked like Martin, on Friday drew an even more personal connection, saying that "Trayvon Martin could've been me 35 years ago."

He said that as people process the Zimmerman verdict, it's important to put the angry reaction of many African-Americans into context. Protests and demonstrations, he said, are understandable, adding that "some of that stuff is just going to have to work its way through - as long as it remains nonviolent."

"It's important to recognize that the African-American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn't go away," he said.

He said that distrust shadows African-American men, that they sometimes are closely followed when they shop at department stores, that they can draw nervous stares on elevators and hear car locks clicking when they walk down the street - experiences that he personally felt before becoming a well-known figure.

"It's inescapable for people to bring those experiences to bear," he said.

A total of 73,293 persons were admitted to the United States as refugees during 2010.

Each year, the President of the United States sends a proposal to the Congress for the maximum number of refugees to be admitted into the country for the upcoming fiscal year, as specified under section 207(e) (1)-(7) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. This number, known as the "refugee ceiling", is the target of annual lobbying by both refugee advocates seeking to raise it and anti-immigration groups seeking to lower it. However, once proposed, the ceiling is normally accepted without substantial Congressional debate. The September 11, 2001 attacks resulted in a substantial disruption to the processing of resettlement claims with actual admissions falling to about 26,000 in fiscal year 2002. Claims were doublechecked for any suspicious activity and procedures were put in place to detect any possible terrorist infiltration, though some advocates noted that, given the ease with which foreigners can otherwise legally enter the U.S., entry as a refugee is comparatively unlikely. The actual number of admitted refugees rose in subsequent years with refugee ceiling for 2006 at 70,000. Critics note these levels are still among the lowest in 30 years.

Re: The War on Terror is a war on American freedom

The War on Terror is a war on American freedom
By Anthony Gregory
07/15/2013

In the aftermath of 9/11, President George W. Bush guided the Patriot Act through Congress, unilaterally expanded surveillance of Americans, amplified executive detention authority and took other dramatic measures that shifted the balance between liberty and government power significantly, in the name of national security.

After the initial Patriot Act was passed, many Democrats perceived the growing threat to civil liberties and started to have misgivings. Now, five years into the Obama presidency enthusiasm for these measures seems to be bipartisan.

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama in 2007 and 2008 argued that sacrificing liberties in the name of anti-terrorism posed long-term risks. He condemned military commissions and violations of habeas corpus as serious threats to �the great traditions of our legal system and our way of life.� He called the Patriot Act �shoddy� and �dangerous.�

Senator Obama sharply criticized President Bush�s surveillance policies as going beyond the boundaries of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and the Fourth Amendment. He vowed that if elected he would run an administration of unprecedented transparency and vigorously protect whistleblowers.

President Obama�s deeds have not matched Senator Obama�s words. Indeed, he has raised the stakes.

He promised to close Guantanamo by January 2010, but instead slowed down releases from Guantanamo and vastly expanded the prison camp at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.

In 2009, he announced a policy of �prolonged detention,� ensuring indefinite imprisonment for detainees, including those against whom the U.S. government had no evidence of wrongdoing. In 2011, he signed the renewal of the Patriot Act. He has increased the role of unmanned drones and claims the authority to order a strike against any suspected terrorist: no trial necessary.

He also has expanded the surveillance operations of the National Security Agency (NSA), monitoring phone and internet traffic in a seemingly indiscriminate manner. The full extent is uncertain, but the goal is �total information awareness,� an idea floated shortly after 9/11.

The agency spies not just on Americans, but on residents of U.S. allies and other friendly countries. Germany, where President Obama has enjoyed high popularity, has protested particularly loudly, knowing well the dangers of totalitarian surveillance powers.

The administration also has spied on reporters, and Attorney General Eric Holder signed an arrest warrant for Fox News correspondent James Rosen over normal journalistic behavior.

Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden exposed the agency�s vast surveillance program. Instead of affording him whistleblower protections, the administration now wants to imprison him.

In fact, the current administration has used the Espionage Act against whistleblowers more than all previous administrations combined. And to prevent future whistle-blowing, the White House is encouraging federal employees to spy on one another.

Our Democratic law professor president, a self-described progressive, has created a perfect storm. Ten years ago, liberals screamed because the Republican administration took note of what patrons checked out at the library. Today, they seem much more complacent in the face of more intimate forms of mass surveillance.

Democrats once talked about prosecuting executive officials for wrongdoing. Today they muse about whether the government should jail journalists like Glenn Greenwald, U.S. columnist for the British newspaper, the Guardian, merely for providing a soapbox for whistleblowers.

The president has announced that the �war on terror� is all but over. We need a new approach to the threat. If the war on terror is being ended, the extraordinary measures that threaten our personal liberties also should be ended.

Some say that foreign terrorists hate the United States for its freedom. This seems oversimplified at best. But if it�s true, America�s enemies must love what U.S. leaders have done in the nearly 12 years since 9/11.

The question isn�t about balancing freedom and security. Determined terrorists can always take lives. But only our politicians, with our acquiescence, can take our freedoms.

New post on Fellowship of the Minds

Former Marine: Obama said he was born in Kenya

by Dr. Eowyn

Jim "Race Bannon" Bancroft is a former United States Marine and a highly respected member of the Free-Republic online-community where he goes by the name "Race Bannon."

In early August of 1980, Bancroft was in Honolulu and had a chance meeting with Barack Obama. Bancroft even remembers where -- in the vicinity of Kalakaua Blvd./Ave.

(Note from Eowyn: In August 1980, Obama would be home in Honolulu, on his summer break after his first year as an undergraduate at Occidental College. Mombasa is the second largest city in Kenya.)

Jim BancroftU.S. Marine Jim Bancroft (l); Obama in a 1980 photo taken by Lisa Jack.

As recounted by Bancroft:

 

He [Obama] also told me something that I never forgot, for it caused me to do some other things in an effort to be nice to him and possibly a favor. We spoke of where I had been and the world as I saw it. I told him I had been to Africa, Mombasa specifically, and he said to me abruptly, "I was born there."

I told him he is not eligible to be president if that was true, but I remembered he said his mom was an American, so, maybe it was okay.

But it was what I did after, that makes this a true memory: I went back to the barracks and told others of this guy and suggested we all grab our photo albums and visit him again and show him pictures of Mombasa so he could see where he was from.

No one wanted to go, and at that time, my camera had failed me weeks before we hit Mombasa and it was late August or early September until I had borrowed someone else's pictures to develop myself so I had copies of where I was. But I never forgot meeting that man for those reasons. I was going to do him a favor and show him his home country of birth. And I never went back for some reason, most likely I forgot to or just felt that a one time chance encounter would be meaningless to both of us and didn't mean we were friends.

Bancroft then closes his testimonial with the following observation:

In the light of what is called "The Birther" movement, these memories are still foremost in my mind concerning this. While I cannot swear it was Barack Obama, all the details I do remember of that chance encounter fit the profile of the man who some people claim is born in Kenya and others claim he was born in Hawaii. The man I met was about 18, thin, mulatto [mixed race], told me he was born in Mombasa, raised overseas, was living in Hawaii and hadn't yet been to many places in the world outside of those places, mostly, hadn't been to the mainland of America for any long time period if at all. And he openly told me he wanted to be President.

And I remember that face, the face of a young man who sat on a table to my right front, his hands resting on the edge of the table, him leaning forward, his smile, all teeth. It was Barack Obama. I don't know if I'd bet my life on it, but I am willing to tell people openly at the risk of my ridicule. I was there, and saw him, spoke to him, and he openly told me he was born in Mombasa, Kenya, not Hawaii .

Money ??? the Economy and our house of Cards






 

COLLAPSE: Count on it.....

   This information from zerohedge.....there is much more information

 at the link....

 

http://www.zerohedge.

 

I cherry picked the bullet points

 for this post.

 

 

 

   #1 According to the World Bank, U.S. GDP accounted for 31.8 percent

 of all global economic activity in 2001. That number dropped to 21.6

 percent in 2011.

 

   #2 The United States was once ranked #1 in the world in GDP per capita.

Today we have slipped to #14

   .

 

   #3 The United States has fallen in the global economic

 competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row.

 

   #4 Since the year 2000, the size of the U.S. national debt has grown

 by more than 11 trillion dollars.

 

   #5 Back in the year 2000, our trade deficit with China was 83

 billion dollars. Last year, it was 315 billion dollars.

 

   #6 In the year 2000, about 17 million Americans were employed in

 manufacturing. Today, only about 12 million Americans are employed in

 manufacturing.

 

   #7 The United States has lost more than 56,000 manufacturing

 facilities since 2001.

 

   #8 The United States has lost a staggering 32 percent of its

 manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

 

   #9 Between December 2000 and December 2010, 38 percent of the

 manufacturing jobs in Ohio were lost, 42 percent of the manufacturing

 jobs in North Carolina were lost and 48 percent of the manufacturing

 jobs in Michigan were lost.

 

   #10 Back in 1998, the United States had 25 percent of the world’s

 high-tech export market and China had just 10 percent. Today,

 China’s high-tech exports are more than twice the size of U.S.

 high-tech exports.

 

   #11 In 2002, the United States had a trade deficit in "advanced

 technology products" of $16 billion with the rest of the world. In

 2010, that number skyrocketed to $82 billion.

 

   #12 The United States has lost more than a quarter of all of its

 high-tech manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

 

   #13 The number of full-time workers in the United States is nearly 6

 million below the old record that was set back in 2007.

 

   #14 The average duration of unemployment in the United States is

 nearly three times as long as it was back in the year 2000.

 

   #15 Throughout the year 2000, more than 64 percent of all working

 age Americans had a job. Today, only 58.7 percent of all working age

 Americans have a job.

 

   #16 The official unemployment rate has been at 7.5 percent or higher

 for

54 months in a row. That is the longest stretch in U.S. history.

 

   #17 The U.S. government says that the number of Americans "not in

 the labor force" rose by 17.9 million between 2000 and 2011. During

 the entire decade of the 1980s, the number of Americans "not in the

 labor force" rose by only 1.7 million.

 

   #18 The average number of hours worked per employed person per year

 has fallen by about 100 since the year 2000.

 

   #19 The U.S. economy continues to trade good paying jobs for low

 paying jobs. 60 percent of the jobs lost during the last recession

 were mid-wage jobs, but 58 percent of the jobs created since then have

 been low wage jobs.

 

   #20 The U.S. economy lost more than 220,000 small businesses during

 the recent recession.

 

   #21 The percentage of Americans that are self-employed has steadily

 declined over the past decade and is now at an all-time low.

 

   #22 According to economist Tim Kane, the following is how the number

 of startup jobs per 1000 Americans breaks down by presidential

 administration...

 

   Bush Sr.: 11.3

 

   Clinton: 11.2

 

   Bush Jr.: 10.8

 

   Obama: 7.8

 

   #23 In the year 2000, there were only 17 million Americans on food

 stamps. Today, there are more than 47 million Americans on food stamps.

 

   #24 In the year 2000, the ratio of social welfare benefits to

 salaries and wages was approximately 21 percent. Today, the ratio of

 social welfare benefits to salaries and wages is approximately 35 percent.

 

   #25 Since Barack Obama entered the White House, the average price of

 a gallon of gasoline in the United States has risen from $1.85 to $3.64.

 

   #26 More than twice as many new homes were sold in the United States

 in

2005 as will be sold in 2013.

 

   #27 Right now there are 20.2 million Americans that spend more than

 half of their incomes on housing. That represents a 46 percent

 increase from 2001.

 

   #28 The price of ground beef increased by 61 percent between 2002

 and 2012.

 

   #29 According to USA Today, water bills have actually tripled over

 the past 12 years in some areas of the country.

 

   #30 In 1999, 64.1 percent of all Americans were covered by

 employment-based health insurance. Today, only 55.1 percent are

 covered by employment-based health insurance.

 

   #31 Median household income in the United States has fallen for four

 years in a row.

 

   #32 As I mentioned recently, the homeownership rate in America is

 now at its lowest level in nearly 18 years.

 

   #33 Back in the year 2000, the mortgage delinquency rate was about 2

 percent. Today, it is nearly 10 percent.

 

   #34 Median household income for families with children dropped by a

 whopping $6,300 between 2001 and 2011.

 

   #35 Back in 2007, about 28 percent of all working families were

 considered to be among "the working poor". Today, that number is up to

32 percent even though our politicians tell us that the economy is

 supposedly recovering.

 

   #36 According to the Federal Reserve, the median net worth of

 families in the United States declined "from $126,400 in 2007 to

 $77,300 in 2010".

 

   #37 According to the New York Times, the average debt burden for U.S.

households that earn $20,000 a year or less "more than doubled to

$26,000 between 2001 and 2010".

 

   #38 Medicare spending increased by 138 percent between 1999 and 2010.

 

   #39 During Obama's first term, the federal government accumulated

 more debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined.

 

   #40 Today, more than a million public school students in the United

 States are homeless. This is the first time that has ever happened in

 our history. That number has risen by 57 percent since the 2006-2007

 school year.

Another Court Rules Against The People And Constitution






Another Court Rules Against The People And Constitution

July 19, 2013 by Bob Livingston 

PHOTOS.COM

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the people and Constitution Wednesday when it vacated a permanent injunction barring the enforcement of Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act that allows for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens.

District Court Judge Kathryn Forrest had issued the injunction in the case of journalist Chris Hedges who, along with Daniel Ellsberg, Noam Chomsky and other activists and journalists, sued the Barack Obama Administration over NDAA. In its decision, the 2nd Circuit ruled the plaintiffs did not have standing because the law does not apply to U.S. citizens.

However, because the law does not exempt U.S. citizens from detention and uses overly broad terms, that's exactly what it does. The act allows the military to indefinitely detain anyone the government determines has consorted with terrorists or those who committed "belligerent acts" against the United States. Hedges and his group argued that journalists often meet with people who fall into those categories and are, therefore, subject to detention under the law.

As the NDAA was passed by Congress, signed into law by the President and it was the President who appealed the injunction to the 2nd Circuit and the 2nd Circuit sided with the regime, it seems there is now no recourse to use to protect Americans against the lawless regime now inhabiting the Nation's capital.

Responding to the decision, Hedges wrote:

This is quite distressing. It means there is no recourse now either within the Executive, Legislative or Judicial branches of government to halt the steady assault on our civil liberties and most basic Constitutional rights. It means that the state can use the military, overturning over two centuries of domestic law, to use troops on the streets to seize U.S. citizens, strip them of due process and hold them indefinitely in military detention centers. States that accrue to themselves this kind of power, history has shown, will use it. We will appeal, but the Supreme Court is not required to hear our appeal. It is a black day for those who care about liberty.

The regime is engaged in an ongoing war against the people and the truth. Federal judges are employees of the Federal government; and, therefore, they are subject to the wishes of the regime. Forrest was bold in opposing it, but she has been slapped down and ordered to proceed with the case consistent with the 2nd Circuit's opinion.
