     The AP released an article yesterday stating that Gov. Abercrombie could not pursue the release of Barack Obama’s mysterious and elusive birth certificate record, which MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is now calling for, citing privacy laws in Hawaii. Note to the AP: That was known since the FIRST REQUEST WAS MADE NEARLY THREE YEARS AGO:

A privacy law that shields birth certificates has prompted Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie to abandon efforts to dispel claims that President Barack Obama was born outside Hawaii, his office says.

State Attorney General David Louie told the governor that privacy laws bar him from disclosing an individual’s birth documentation without the person’s consent, Abercrombie spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said Friday.

“There is nothing more that Gov. Abercrombie can do within the law to produce a document,” said Dela Cruz. “Unfortunately, there are conspirators who will continue to question the citizenship of our president.”

Abercrombie, who was a friend of Obama’s parents and knew him as a child, launched an investigation last month into whether he can release more information about the president’s Aug. 4, 1961 birth. The governor said at the time he was bothered by people who questioned Obama’s birthplace for political reasons.

But Abercrombie’s attempt reached a dead end when Louie told him the law restricted his options.

Hawaii’s privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn’t have a tangible interest.

From America’s Right:

An Associated Press dispatch, written by Erica Werner and Richard Alonso-Zaldivar, compares the House and Senate ObamaCare bills. We’d like to compare this dispatch to the AP’s dispatch earlier this week “fact checking” Sarah Palin’s new book. Here goes:

Number of AP reporters assigned to story:
• ObamaCare bills: 2
• Palin book: 11

Number of pages in document being covered:
• ObamaCare bills: 4,064
• Palin book: 432

Number of pages per AP reporter:
• ObamaCare bill: 2,032
• Palin book: 39.3

On a per-page basis, that is, the AP devoted 52 times as much manpower to the memoir of a former Republican officeholder as to a piece of legislation that will cost trillions of dollars and an untold number of lives. That’s what they call accountability journalism.

     Add the Associated Press and car researcher Edmunds.com to the list of “they are the problem”… you know, the list that includes FOXNews and the US Chamber of Commerce.:

Add Edmunds to President Nixon’s Obama’s Enemies List   [Greg Pollowitz]

CNN:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — A total of 690,000 new vehicles were sold under the Cash for Clunkers program last summer, but only 125,000 of those were vehicles that would not have been sold anyway, according to an analysis released Wednesday by the automotive Web site Edmunds.com.

Still, auto sales contributed heavily to the economy’s expansion in the third quarter, adding 1.7 percentage points to the nation’s gross domestic product growth.

The Cash for Clunkers program gave car buyers rebates of up to $4,500 if they traded in less fuel-efficient vehicles for new vehicles that met certain fuel economy requirements. A total of $3 billion was allotted for those rebates.

The average rebate was $4,000. But the overwhelming majority of sales would have taken place anyway at some time in the last half of 2009, according to Edmunds.com. That means the government ended up spending about $24,000 each for those 125,000 additional vehicle sales.

Could CBS be Next (better be careful Katie:):

When Katie Couric and the folks at CBS start doubting what the Administration says about how effective February’s economic stimulus package was, you know President Obama is in trouble.Consider that on Thursday’s CBS “Evening News,” Chip Reid began a segment with the following startling statement about a jobs report card to be released by the White House Friday:

Well, Katie, that report is going to claim that the stimulus has already created or saved hundreds of thousands of jobs, but if the administration`s first effort at counting stimulus jobs is any guide, tomorrow`s numbers could be hard to believe.

Readers are advised to make sure youngsters are out of the room, for watching Katie and the Gang say the White House might be fudging numbers could be way too frightening for minors (video embedded below the fold with transcript, h/t Terri Green, file photo):

Chamber to begin ads against health care overhaul

(AP) – 1 day ago

 WASHINGTON — Looking to build pressure on moderate Democrats, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says it will begin airing new TV ads in seven states and on national cable television attacking the emerging legislation, including a government-run insurance option.

 The chamber, the country’s largest business organization, says such a public plan would force tax increases, raise peoples’ health care costs and threaten employer-provided coverage that most Americans already have. The ad is slated to start Wednesday.

 Chamber spokeswoman Blair Latoff said the ads would run in states including Maine, Louisiana and Arkansas — home to some pivotal moderate senators of both parties

The Supreme Court today decided not to hear the challenge of an Army Captain who had been discharged under the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which Obama had campaigned on the promise to reverse, 16 years after Clinton implemented the policy.

From the Associated Press:

In court papers, the administration said the appeals court ruled correctly in this case when it found that “don’t ask, don’t tell” is “rationally related to the government’s legitimate interest in military discipline and cohesion.”

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman referred requests for comment to the Justice Department, but said the military policy “implements the law.”

“The law requires the (Defense) Department to separate from the armed services members who engage in or attempt to engage in homosexual acts; state they are homosexual or bisexual; or marry or attempt to marry a person of the same biological sex,”

US To Sign Strategic Defense Pact With Iran, Russian Foreign Ministry Reports

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers (Traducción al Español abajo)

 

 

 

 

In what will most certainly be a blow to Israel, Russian Foreign Ministry sources are reporting in the Kremlin today that Foreign Minster Sergey Lavrov has been informed by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that President Obama has ordered the process to begin which will eventually lead to the United States signing of a Strategic Defense Pact with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Russian Military Analysts state in these reports that the United States and its NATO allies who are currently embroiled in a brutal war against the over 42 million fiercely independent Pashtun peoples of Afghanistan and Pakistan, that no Nation in history has ever been able to defeat, are in ‘imminent danger’ of having all of their supply lines cut that support their military forces in that region.

The biggest blow against the United States and NATO came yesterday when Kyrgyzstan confirmed that it will close the main US air base on its soil supporting its troops in Afghanistan, and as we can read:

“Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev said in Moscow on Tuesday that his country was shutting down Manas air base, which US and NATO forces have been using to route troops and supplies into Afghanistan.

“[We have] made the decision on ending the term for the American base on the territory of Kyrgyzstan,” Bakiyev said during a Tuesday press conference with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow.

The Kyrgz president explained that the closure was because the two sides had not agreed on the “economic support” the US would provide Kyrgyzstan in exchange for its presence in the country.”

This action against the Americans war effort follows by a day the severing of another of their main supply lines to Afghanistan, and as we can further read:

“Militants blew up a bridge in northwest Pakistan on Tuesday, temporarily cutting a major supply line for Western troops in Afghanistan, a government official said. The attack was the latest in a series on the Khyber Pass by insurgents seeking to hamper the U.S.-led mission against the Taliban in neighboring Afghanistan.”

So dire has the supply situation to US and NATO troops in Afghanistan become that NATO’s Top Military Commander has issued unprecedented permission for the utilizing by his Member Nations of the Islamic Republic of Iran to supply their forces, and as we can read:

“NATO would not oppose individual member nations making deals with Iran to supply their forces in Afghanistan as an alternative to using increasingly risky routes from Pakistan, the alliance’s top military commander said Monday.

Gen. John Craddock’s comments came just days after NATO’s secretary general, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, urged the U.S. and other members of the Western military alliance to engage with Iran to combat Taliban militants in Afghanistan.

“Those would be national decisions. Nations should act in a manner that is consistent with their national interest and with their ability to resupply their forces,” Craddock, an American who is NATO’s supreme allied commander, told The Associated Press. “I think it is purely up to them.”

Not understood by many American peoples are that the Iranian peoples are fervent enemies of the Taliban rulers of the Pashtun peoples of Afghanistan and Pakistan after the brutal killing of its diplomats by the Taliban in 1998, and which to this very day Iran has vowed to take revenge over.

Equally going virtually unnoticed by the American people is that almost immediately after taking office, President Obama ordered an attack on the Pashtun peoples of Pakistan, and which many Russian Military Analysts state can be compared to the American President Lyndon Johnson’s ordering of attacks against the North Vietnamese, and which saw the rise of American Forces in South Vietnam rise from 16,000 under President Kennedy to over 500,000 under Johnson.

Not to be unnoticed in either of these American wars, is that the number of US Military Forces, nor their vastly superior firepower and air superiority, are guarantees of success. Even worse, and a brutal lesson learned by the Soviets after their losing war against these Pashtun peoples, is that to this very day, no Nation on Earth has ever been defeated by the wholesale slaughter of their civilian population by aerial bombings. And, perhaps, there is not better example of this than Great Britain’s defiance against the German Nazi Empire of last century, and even though over 60,000 British civilians were killed in mass bombings, their Nation remained defiant and became the ultimate victors in that war.

To these latest events however, and as we had touched upon in our January 16th report “US Orders Iran And Turkey Attacks On Iraq Over Israeli Coup Plot”, the goals of the United States are now separating from Israel’s at a pace so astounding that many Russian Intelligence Analysts are openly stating that it is not inconceivable that the Israelis could unleash upon the Americans the catastrophic destructions of a number of their major cities in order to ‘take down’ the Obama government to prevent the soon to come US-Iranian Alliance.

Russian Intelligence Analysts, in fact, state that what could happen in the Untied States was exactly what has happened already when after President Bush began making overtures to Iran in early 2001, Israel’s Mossad ‘saturated’ the US with hundreds of saboteurs teams ordered to cause chaos and catastrophic destruction throughout America in order to plunge that Nation into total submission.

Of these Israeli saboteurs we can read:  

“According to government sources, and a 60-page Drug Enforcement Administration working document, now widely circulating among reporters in the U.S. and Europe, 125 Israeli “art students” were detained and deported between January 2000 and July 2001; another 80-100 Israelis have been similarly detained, interrogated, and deported, since the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

In one case, set forth in the DEA document, an Israeli “art student” was bailed out of jail by another Israeli, named Ophir Baer, who was an employee of Amdocs.

The proximity of the Israeli “art student” spy teams to some of the suspected al-Qaeda “sleeper” networks in the United States has prompted some American national security officials to suspect that Israel had infiltrated the Sept. 11 terror plot, at some level, and failed to pass on the information to U.S. authorities.

On the evening of Sept. 11, local police in Bergen County, New Jersey, arrested five Israeli nationals as they were driving a van, owned by their employer, a Weehawken, N.J. moving company called Urban Moving Systems.

The five Israelis, Sivan and Paul Kurzberg, Oded Ellner, Moer Marmari, and Yaron Shmuel, had been spotted on the roof of the moving company warehouse, shortly after planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers, taking photos of one another and obviously clowning around, while pointing at the burning towers in the background.

Perleman reported, “In addition to their strange behavior and their Middle Eastern looks, the suspicions were compounded when a box cutter and $4,000 in cash were found in the van. Moreover, one man carried two passports, and another had fresh pictures of the men standing with the smoldering wreckage of the World Trade Center in the background.”

The five men were turned over to the FBI by the Bergen County police, and, after two of the men’s names appeared on an FBI-CIA list of known Mossad operatives, the U.S. opened a foreign counterintelligence investigation of the incident. The Israelis were held for several months, interrogated and put through lie detector tests, and were eventually deported back to Israel.

After one brief interview with the FBI, the owner of the moving company, Dominik Otto Suter, fled to Israel. Authorities confirmed that the company was a Mossad front, whose “main office” was a letter drop address in midtown Manhattan.”

It is still not known if the Intelligence Authorities in the United States have recovered the 3-6 Israeli ‘suitcase’ nuclear weapons reported to be hidden in some of their largest cities and military bases, but if they have not, then their current rapprochement with Iran will, most assuredly, begin one of the most horrifying chapters in American history…and to which, and as always, the American people themselves remain totally unprepared for.

     Without an explanation, the United States Supreme Court has declined to hear the first of what will inevitably be NUMEROUS challenges to the eligibilty of President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama II to serve as the President of the United States.

     The Court declined to issue an emergency stay on the Electoral College votes, scheduled for December 15th, as requested by Leo Donofrio in his challenge to Obama’s citizenship. Donofrio acknowledges that Obama was allegedly born in Hawaii, but that his Kenyan and British citizenship precludes him from being considered a “natural born” citizen.

     The case filed by Philip Berg, a Pennsylvania attorney, which alleges that (a) Obama was born elsewhere, such as Kenya, and/or (b) his Indonesian citizenship as a child of Lolo Soetoro, making him ineligible to be President, will have his case considered some day this week or next. Additionally, there are at least 16 other challenges at the state and federal court levels nationwide, including the case filed to stop the California Secretary of State from certifying the election and the Electors by Alan Keyes.

     Despite being referred to as nutcases, right-fringe, and delusional, there are still many who believe that Obama could settle this matter very quickly, so that it does not fester as a cloud over his administration. While I would prefer that he not serve as our President, I do want our next President to be able to work on our Nation’s problems without being plagued by issues that cast doubt over his capacity and eligibility.

     In a twist of irony, all the mainstream media that either refused to report anything on the birth certificate issue, or buried it in the body of the news, are reporting the Supreme Court’s denial of the Donofrio case like a wildfire: The Associated Press, The Chicago Tribune, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe!!

     Just before he was scheduled for a press conference at his hotel, Dr. Jerome Corsi, PhD., author of An OBAMA Nation:Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality was arrested and is presently being detained in Kenya. FOX News has confirmed the story.

 

     Joseph Farah, of World Net Daily said that it is unclear as to what the circumstances are surrounding the detention of Dr. Corsi.

 

    What is known thus far is that Dr. Corsi had postponed several radio appearances earlier, citing that some “doors” that had previously been unavailable to him in his research on Sen. Barack Obama had “opened” and he was traveling to Kenya. At this point, it is still unknown as to what information Dr. Corsi had found, and what connection it has to Obama, let alone the impact on the Obama campaign.

 

Sen. Barack Obama and his cousin, Kenyan Prime Minister Ralia Odinga

     Sources in Kenya are trying to determine what role, if any, that the Prime Minister of Kenya may have played in Dr. Corsi’s arrest and detention. After all, Prime Minister Odinga is Barack Obama’s cousin, whom Obama campaigned for, allegedly at the expense of the American taxpayers.

     As would be expected, Obama spokesperson Bill Burton had no comment on behalf of the campaign.

UPDATE: THE AP is reporting that Corsi is being deported over questions about his visa.

    

 In another one of what appears to be a McCain Bold Strategic Move, Real Clear Politics is reporting that the McCain campaign is restructuring its resources in the Michigan area to other battleground states to concentrate more on states that can still be swayed to the Red column.

     RCP is stating that all radio and television ads have been pulled, the McCain mailings have either been cancelled or scaled back, and only a minimal McCain staff will remain in the state that is purple, leaning Blue! The Associated Press has now stated the same thing.

    While the liberal media will call this a win for Obama, it is clear that McCain knows that that it is important that he protect the Red states that are needed to win the Presidency. This, of course, does not rule Michigan out of the McCain column, because, after all, there are still 33 days left, and October can be full of surprises.
