What we knew all along!!  Those sneaky %$#’s
 
emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called “Demand Letter 3”. That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or “long guns.” Demand Letter 3 was so named because it would be the third ATF program demanding gun dealers report tracing information”

      By the time that we emerged from church services on Sunday morning, the media was already painting the Time Square Car Bomb attempt as “home grown”, “Timothy McVeigh-like”, and “right wing lunacy”. Whether it was one of the talking heads, or the likes of the ever-insolent Sen. Charles Schumer, the goal of their voices was to lessen the possibility that the bomb attempt was tied to Islamic radicals, and to create the greater impression that we have more to fear from those “dangerous” individuals, you know, like the Grandma’s in Quincy, Il.

       Using one of President Obama’s overused phrases, “Let me be clear”, the members of law enforcement, at all levels, worked swiftly and cautiously in quickly getting this matter to the arrest(s) that have occurred. The federal agencies have shown that they may have learned a thing or two as a result of the Christmas day bomber fiasco and the manner in which they publicly handled it. I believe that is the primary reason that Attorney General Eric Holder personally made the announcement if the arrest of Faisal Shahzad at 1:30AM today.

      Despite reports that the suspect claims to have worked alone, we have now learned that there have been several arrests in Pakistan this morning, possibly some family members and others.

      So, instead of adopting their stance of political correctness, downplaying the role of Islamic radicals, perhaps our “leaders” should make that a primary focus in our ongoing intelligence situations, and cease painting the Tea Party Grandma’s as violent threats!

     Despite “guilty” please, several of the masterminds of the 9-11 attacks, including Khalid Sheik Mohammed, will be brought to the lower end of Manhatten to stand trial for their role in the attacks. From the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON – Self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other Guantanamo Bay detainees will be brought to trial in a civilian federal courthouse in New York, near the site of the devastating 2001 terror attacks. Prosecutors expect to seek the death penalty.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced the long-awaited and politically fraught decision at a news conference Friday. He also said five other Guantanamo detainees, including a major suspect in the bombing of the USS Cole, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, will be tried through the military commission process.

Holder said the Sept. 11 defendants should be tried where their crimes occurred. Nearly 3,000 people died when the World Trade Center towers were brought down by two hijacked jetliners, another hijacked jet hit the Pentagon and a fourth crashed in western Pennsylvania.

“After eight years of delay, those allegedly responsible for that attacks of September the 11th will finally face justice,” Holder said. “They will be brought to New York — to New York — to answer for their alleged crimes in a courthouse just blocks away from where the twin towers once stood.”

Question: Is this a trial of the attackers, or a trial of the United States?

     If the thugs, who stood at the polling place in Pennsylvania on Election Day intimidating the senior citozens and other voters who came out to vote in one of the most important Presidential races in recent year, thought that there “problems” were behind them since Eric Holder opted not to pursue the case, tghye were mistaken. The U.S. Civil Rights Commission is now looking into the matter:

The U.S. Civil Rights Commission is not backing off its showdown with the Justice Department about mishandling the voter-intimidation case involving agents of the New Black Panther Party. Nor should it.

Yesterday, the commission sent a letter to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. demanding that Justice “fully cooperate,” according to specific legal authority vested in the commission, with the commission’s inquiry about why Justice dropped the case after it had already been won. The commission wrote that Justice’s replies to earlier commission requests either are “overdue,” have been “largely non-responsive” or have provided “none of the documents we requested.”

     Quoting the Black Panthers: “You want freedom, you’re gonna have to kill some crackers. You’re gonna have to kill some of they [sic] babies.”

OKLA) DELEGATION QUESTIONS JUSTICE DEPARTMENT’S THREAT TO CUT

FEDERAL FUNDING

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Members of the Oklahoma Congressional Delegation today sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder seeking justification and clarification for a letter the Department of Justice (DOJ) sent to Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson threatening Oklahoma with a loss of federal funding if the state passed a constitutional amendment making English the official language of the state.

The original DOJ letter, characterized by delegation members as dubiously timed at the peak of legislative debate, advises the state that “implementation of this [English-only] amendment may conflict with Oklahoma’s obligations to protect the civil rights of limited English proficient (LEP) persons.”

 Dated April 14, 2009 from Acting Assistant Attorney General Loretta King, the DOJ letter states, “As you know, recipients of federal financial assistance must comply with various civil rights statutes, including Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964…which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin.” The letter continues, “State agencies and other entities in Oklahoma that receive federal financial assistance thus would be precluded by federal law from abiding by an English-only requirement where it conflicts with their obligations under Title VI.”

The Oklahoma Congressional Delegation’s letter to Holder points out that several other states have passed similar legislation and asks if they too have been “accused by the Department of Justice to be in violation with Title VI, or formally threatened with funding termination.” The delegation letter asks for an explanation for what prompted the DOJ to write the state of Oklahoma on this issue and seeks explanation for what funds would be eliminated should Oklahomans pass the English only amendment.

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe stated, “This nation’s cultural diversity is one that contributes to the greatness of our country. I support the state’s effort to pass a constitutional amendment making English the official language of the state because it ultimately facilitates better communication across the many lines of diversity within our state. The state legislature has overwhelmingly passed this amendment, and now it is up to the voters of Oklahoma to decide if they wish to accept it. It is entirely unacceptable for the federal government to try to strong arm the state by threatening to remove federal funding. I look forward to hearing the Justice Department’s explanation for such behavior.”

QUESTION: How does English being the official language of Oklahoma violate anyone’s civil rights?

     Andrew C. McCarthy has respectfully declined to participate with the President’s Detention Policy Task Force, as he had been invited to do by Attorney General Eric Holder.

     In his letter to the Attorney General, McCarthy writes:

Given your policy of conducting ruinous criminal and ethics investigations of lawyers over the advice they offer the government, and your specific position that the wartime detention I would endorse is tantamount to a violation of law, it makes little sense for me to attend the Task Force meeting. After all, my choice would be to remain silent or risk jeopardizing myself.

     He ends his letter with:

“I am powerless to stop the president, as he takes these reckless steps, from touting his Detention Policy Task Force as a demonstration of his national security seriousness. But I can decline to participate in the charade.”

US journalist Roxana Saberi turns 32 today in an Iranian prison. After an hour-long trial, she was sentenced to eight years behind bars for “espionage.” She was initially told she was arrested for buying bootleg wine, and then because she was working as a journalist without a license. She’s now on day five of a hunger strike. Today, one of her defense lawyers was denied access to her.

     Dr. Orly Taitz, the attorney for a group of Plaintiff’s challenging Barack Obama’s Presidential eligibility, physically delivered her case filings to the Department of Justice and to the Supreme Court yesterday. This step was required because although having all files signed for in the past, it has recenty come to light that additional briefs and filings have allegedly been imprperly routed in the Supreme Court system, prompting a request for an FBI investigation.

      From Dr. Taitz’ blog:

USDOJ: Office of Solicitor General AND SCOTUS!

Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq.  just received a phone call from Karen Thornton at the Department of Justice.  She stated that all of Orly’s documents and filings have been forwarded to the Office of Solicitor General, Elena Kagan.  That includes all three Dossiers, the Quo Warranto Easterling v. Obama aka Soetoro.  Please show your support that we want these matters and investigations looked into immediately, 202-514-2203.
 
Elena Kagan
Elena Kagan, Office of Solicitor General

Coincidently, after Dr. Taitz called me with that update, she received another call from Officer Giaccino at the Supreme Court.  Officer Giaccino stated both pleadings have been received and being analyzed now.  Also, Justice Roberts must be back because the Officer also stated that all the documents that were given to Chief Justice Roberts at Idaho University are now at the Supreme Court and are also being analyzed.  We will be notified tomorrow after 1:00pm EST as to whether they will be on the docket at the Supreme Court.
