Sandy Hook Tragedy Is Felt At East End Schools

The NRA has been a bulwark for freedom on the gun issue. The Second Amendment is the true teeth behind all of our rights, and Phil knows it.

If the leftist progressive elites manage to confiscate guns, freedom of speech and freedom of religion will be gone within a decade (or sooner), because there will be no way for the citizenry to defend itself against the onslaught of governmental abuses of regulatory power.

I agree yet Phil says 227 people have been murdered since Sandy hook I would venture to say two thirds of them were criminals and dirt bags NOW PBR in stark contrast
There were roughly 1.2 million abortions performed last year and the abortion rate was 20 per 1,000 women aged 15–44. Put differently, about 2% of American women aged 15–44 had an abortion that year.
By my calculations that means about 47,726 baby's have been murdered since Sandy Hook. My God everyone can see the obvious they just choose to ignore it. Would you trade all the gun murders for all the abortions of children.Phil already said he would not trade." Dec 29, 12 10:59 AM

I love my country. At least the parts that still resemble the America I have worked hard to preserve the rights many of my friends have died protecting. Upstanding men still have the right to protect what is rightfully theirs! Should the day come to stand up again for our liberties, weather from foreign invasion or our own political class.

Whatever ultimately emerges from the fiscal-cliff negotiations over the past 48 hours, the country will survive. But the damage can't be undone. Taxes are going up for all working Americans. And so is the size of government.

Businesses have been waiting to see whether a second BHO administration will encourage the economy. During the fiscal-cliff negotiations, however, the president made clear that his goal isn't to get business going again but instead to expand government and redistribute income. He offered no real spending cuts and instead used the year-end deadline to divide America into classes—to the point of campaigning on New Year's Eve against higher earners. Though the president talks about fairness, his policies penalize profit and investment. but Phil the irony of this is this hurts aspiring Americans more than it hurts those who have already made it.Pretty funny huh

It marked a turning point in the gun debate, Shapiro’s confident, fact-packed demolition of CNN’s Piers Morgan last night marks the turning point in the gun control debate. He showed that when they cannot exploit the deaths of children, gun control advocates are forced to defend their views, which are based on faulty premises. the interview gave new energy and enthusiasm to defenders of the Second Amendment, who are preparing for the mother of all battles.

Kentucky Sheriff to Feds: 'You Are Never Going to Pull Guns Out of Jackson County'
As I wrote on Jan. 11, Jackson County Kentucky Sheriff Denny Peyman has made it clear that gun laws which violate the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution will not be enforced in his county.
On Jan. 12, he followed this up with a press conference in which he explained that a Sheriff's powers are predominant over the powers of federal and state agents. When he says these things he drives gun-grabbers batty because he says them with the conviction that rests on knowledge, and he has no intention of backing down.

During the press conference, he took time to explain his powers as sheriff:

I am responsible for the people inside this county. I am the highest elected official in this county, and this is the only opportunity the people have to speak for themselves and say 'this is what we want.'

I can ask federal people to leave, they have to leave. I can ask state people to leave, they have to leave. ...[And] it doesn't matter what [new laws] Obama passes, the sheriff has more power than the federal people.

He said that if federal gun-grabbers don't understand this, then "they need to go back and study it," because Kentucky "is a commonwealth."

Peyman says he has been approached by liberals within the gun-grabbing world since he made his original promise of no gun control in his county, and he told them plainly:

"You are never going to pull guns out of Jackson County."

Well done sir! You are a patriot and we wish you and your family stay safe

Mr, Z will like this,
From Plato

"Won't he smile in welcome at anyone he meets, saying that he's no tyrant,
making all sorts of promises both in public and in private, freeing the people
from debt, redistributing land to them, his followers, and pretending to be
gracious and gentle to all?"
However after a series of unpopular actions, including stirring up a war, the
leader begins to alienate some of his most ardent advisers who begin to voice
their misgivings in private. Following a purge of these advisors the tyrant attracts
some of the worst elements of the state to help him rule. As the citizens grow
weary of his tenure the tyrant chooses to attract foreigners to resupply his
dwindling bodyguards. The citizens finally decide they've had enough and begin
to discuss rebellion.
At this point in the story the student asks his teacher incredulously:
"What do you mean? Will the tyrant dare to use violence against [the
people] imprison or to hit [them] if [they] don't obey? The teacher answers,
"Yes - once he's taken away [the people's] weapons."

It is clear where you mind got twisted,
Domestic terrorist Bill Ayers is set to be a keynote speaker at the annual meeting for the Association of Teacher Educators (ATE) next month in Atlanta, GA.
ATE's website for the meeting describes Ayers' work on the topic of education. It fails to mention any of his prior radical activities, including his domestic terrorism activities, political actions from his days in the Weather Underground, or that he is a self-proclaimed "Communist--with a lower case c."

By whitewashing the most prominent aspects of Ayers's resume and passing off a domestic terrorist as an appropriate and benign speaker at their meeting, ATE is taking a radical political position.

As for Ayers, there is no better way for him to continue his documented attempts to influence youth than by facilitating his access to educational institutions.

As recently as last December EAGnews.org obtained footage of Ayers speaking to students and educators at New York University (NYU). There he explained the importance of using the "classroom" as the place to cultivate change:

Amid the progressive onslaught aimed at undercutting the 2nd Amendment by focusing on hunting and shooting, Rasmussen has released a poll showing that 65% of respondents understand gun ownership was meant to ensure freedom from government tyranny.

When appearing on Piers Morgan Tonight, Breitbart's Ben Shapiro argued that Americans' "need" for weapons like the AR-15 was based in the "prospective possibility of resistance to tyranny," an argument host Piers Morgan tried to discredit as "absurd." However, 65% of Americans apparently understand what Morgan does not--the 2nd Amendment is not about shooting ducks, it's not about shooting cans or paper targets; it's about protection from government abuse.

When our Founding Fathers wrote and signed the 2nd Amendment, they did not create a right to keep and bear arms. Rather, they protected a right that already existed--a God-given right that comes to us through nature--the right to be free.

Progressives like Morgan continue to try to cloud this issue; that's why Rasmussen's poll is so important--two out of three Americans intuitively knows that the main reason for being armed is to defend our lives and our freedom.

The details of the poll are very telling. Of those who have a gun in their home, a full 72% believe the purpose of being armed is to repel tyranny; even in homes without a gun, 57% of respondents believe the purpose of gun ownership is to defend against tyranny." Jan 21, 13 9:24 AM

In light of recent events I feel I need to make a public statement of my views on this subject. As the Sheriff of Collin County, Texas, I have for the past 28 years served to protect and keep safe all citizens of our county, recognizing the trust placed in me with this profoundly important responsibility.

Unfortunately, the recent surge in the numbers of innocent victims who have died at the hands of unstable criminals has prompted politicians in Washington to seek to pass laws that would seriously erode the constitutional rights of innocent and law abiding citizens.

Neither I, nor any of my deputies, will participate in the enforcement of laws that violate our precious constitutional rights, including our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

As long as I remain Sheriff of Collin County, I will not participate in the actions of misguided politicians who seek to impede our citizen’s right to all of the privileges afforded by our Constitution.

Obama’s Gun Control Laws
January 21, 2013 3:59 PM
Election ReturnsJOHNSON COUNTY, Mo (KMOX) – As President Barack Obama continues to push gun control proposals in Washington D.C., Sheriff Charles M. Heiss, R-Johnson County is asking fellow law enforcers to sign and send this letter to the president.

The letter expresses concern with the Obama administration and the president’s gun control laws he laid out before Congress last week.

“It appears to me and many Americans that there is a genuine desire on the part of your administration to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law abiding American citizens in the interest of curbing gun violence in our nation,” Heiss wrote. “Any attempt to restrict these Second Amendment rights through executive order is unconstitutional and tantamount to an all-out assault on the United States Constitution.”

In the letter Heiss tells the president that he has a duty to protect his constituents from incidents of crime, and has the responsibility to protect and preserve their rights and liberties.

President Barack Obama will deliver his State of the Union address on Tuesday to a nation that disapproves of the way he is handling nearly every issue, including gun control and the federal deficit.
According to a Gallup poll, 42% of Americans approve of Obama's gun policies while 54% disapprove.

On taxes, 41% approve and 57% disapprove. On the economy, 39% approve and 60% disapprove. On "the situation in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians," 36% approve and 55% disapprove.

And on the federal budget deficit, 31% approve and 65% disapprove.

The only area in which Obama gains the support of a majority is on "national defense" issues, but the poll was conducted before North Korea reportedly tested a nuclear weapon on Monday as Obama seeks to diminish America's nuclear arsenal.

Gallup conducted its poll from Feb. 7-10.

(CNSNews.com) – Since taking office in 2009, food stamp rolls under President Barack Obama have risen to more than 47 million people in America, exceeding the population of Spain.

“Now is the time to act boldly and wisely – to not only revive this economy, but to build a new foundation for lasting prosperity,” said Obama during his first joint session address to Congress on Feb. 24, 2009.

Since then, the number of participants enrolled in food stamps, known as the Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP), has risen substantially.

When Obama entered office in January 2009 there were 31,939,110 Americans receiving food stamps. As of November 2012—the most recent data available—there were 47,692,896 Americans enrolled, an increase of 49.3 percent.

Rubio: America One Of Few Places Where 'Dreams...Have A Chance'

Well said Mr Rubio, I not being born here can testify to that.

"Tonight, all across this land, parents will hold their newborn children in their arms for the first time. For many of these parents, life has not gone the way they had planned. Maybe they were born into circumstances they’ve found difficult to escape. Maybe they’ve made some mistakes along the way. Maybe they’re young mothers, all alone, the father of their child long gone.

But tonight, when they look into the eyes of their child for the first time, their lives will change forever. Because in those eyes, they will see what my parents saw in me, and what your parents saw in you. They will see all the hopes and dreams they once had for themselves. This dream – of a better life for their children – it’s the hope of parents everywhere. Politicians here and throughout the world have long promised that more government can make those dreams come true.

But we Americans have always known better. From our earliest days, we embraced economic liberty instead. And because we did, America remains one of the few places on earth where dreams like these even have a chance."

He is right, once a country of determination and elbow-grease it is now becoming one where individual prosperity relies on the government to look favorably upon your existence,

And that is why I left a country that ours is staring to resemble in the first place.

Each time someone in America is killed using a gun owned by a non-career criminal, the press calls for new gun control measures. But when citizens are killed by gun-wielding criminals, the media is nowhere to be found. Another case like that just occurred in Miami, where 36-year-old Maurice Harris was murdered while trying to protect his 11-year-old daughter. “He was my husband of 16 years,” said his wife. “He meant everything to me.”

According to police, two armed men broke into Harris’ home and told Harris they wanted cash. Then they tried to go for Harris’ daughter’s room – and Harris fought back. Harris’ cousin explained, “that’s when they wrestled and he shot him.”

Federal non-military agencies have bought two billion rounds of ammunition in the last "10 MONTHS" or did you miss that.

The US government is no longer about the people, it's the largest most corrupt organization in the world.

How disturbing is this,

In a mistake that probably wasn’t a mistake, a Washington state bill sponsored by liberal Democrats contained covert provision that would have called for the police to have the right to search private citizens’ home once per year if they are known to own guns. According to Senate Bill 5737:

In order to continue to possess weapons that were legally possessed on the effective date of this section, the person possessing shall ... safely and securely store the weapon. The sheriff of the county may, no more than once per year, conduct an inspection to ensure compliance with this subsection.

In other words, kiss the Fourth Amendment goodbye. Liberal lawmakers behind the bill claim they have no knowledge of the provision – which, of course, begs the question as to how the provision got into the bill in the first place. “I have to admit it shouldn’t be in there,” said Sen. Ed Murray (D-Seattle). “I made a mistake,” said Sen. Adam Kline (D-Seattle). “I frankly should have vetted this more closely.”

Journalist Bob Woodward blasts Obama "madness" in handling cuts

(Reuters) - Bob Woodward on Wednesday criticized Barack Obama's handling of the automatic U.S. budget cuts set to take effect this week, calling he's decision to hold back on military deployments "madness."

Or is it just plan old Barackathome narcissism…

Much like Hitler, Obama feels his supporters have failed him, by not affording him unilateral, imperial control in his second term…

They must be punished… The nation must be punished, for it’s failure to recognize him as king, and their audacity to question his spending.

Just as the German nation had to be punished for ‘failing’ Hitler, now America must be punished for ‘failing’ Obama.

Silly little minions simply don;t know their place.

The truth is the 2% not being spent, even spending 19% more than last year is negligible, and could be easily dealt with my simply not giving money away to a single foreign state for a year…

But it won’t be… The cuts will be targeted for maximum punitive value against the American public.

All hail the emperor!

BOB WOODWARD: A 'Very Senior' White House Person Warned Me I'd 'Regret' What I'm Doing
Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a "very senior person" at the White House warned him that he would "regret doing this," the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.

"It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House threatening reporters, 'You're going to regret doing something that you believe in,'" Woodward said.

Media Turns Against Obama's Sequester Narrative

Over the past weeks, President Obama has been running around the country like Chicken Little spreading falsehoods about sequester, all in the hopes of blaming a 2% budget cut (which he proposed and signed into law) for an anemic economy that might be headed into a double-dip recession. Simply put, the White House and its media are pushing this fabricated Narrative in the hopes of shifting blame away from Obama's failed economic policies and onto the GOP and a lack of government largess.
If our economy crashes, Obama wants to blame sequester; he wants to argue that our economic woes are caused by a government that isn't big enough, and that he needs a Democrat-controlled House to correct that. It's an audaciously dishonest plot, and it almost worked. The monkeys in the wrench, though, have been little things called facts, a Republican Party refusing to blink, and one brave and honest reporter. Thank you Mr Woodward!

A number of recent polls have proven that point, and the point that Obama was not able to get away with dishonestly blaming sequester on the GOP. A poll from Reuters released today brings even worse news. President Chicken Little's approval rating has collapsed to 43%; a drop of seven points since February 19.
The Reuters poll also shows that Obama and his media failed dramatically when it came to blaming sequester on Republicans. Thirty-eight percent blame "all the political actors involved." A mere 27% blame only the GOP. Six-percent blame only Obama and Democrats.

Dr. Thomas Sowell Discusses "Intellectuals And Race" On "Hannity"

TUCKER CARLSON: This book is packed with all kinds of interesting information that I have never heard before. This jumped out at me, you talked about the grotesque, really disparity, between black and white unemployment rates. The black unemployment rate is much higher than white unemployment rate, but you say that wasn't always the case. You say that black labor participations were higher than that of whites up until about 1930. What changed?

DR. THOMAS SOWELL: What Changed was the government intervention into the labor market. 1930 was the last year in which there was no federal minimum wage. They brought in the Davis-Bacon Act. In fact, people, some of the sponsors of the Davis-Bacon Act said that they were producing that Act precisely because blacks from the South, construction workers were coming up North and the construction companies were able to underbid the Northern companies and get government contracts. And so, this was meant to put a stop to that.

CARLSON: Amazing, so just to be totally clear, up until 1930 under the Roosevelt administration, of course that would have been the Hoover administration, but up until that point, there were lower unemployment rates in black neighborhoods than white neighborhoods and that has been the result, you think, of lack of government intervention?

SOWELL: Not always, but in 1930 that was certainly the case, and that was not the first time that it was the case. The huge gap that you see today, that all has occurred under minimum wage laws. (Hannity, March 15, 2013)

FINAL REPORT: Obama's Birth Announcements Fail To Indicate "Natural Born" Status
A new investigation of Obama’s birth announcements appearing in Hawaii’s two primary newspapers in August, 1961 shows, conclusively, they were the result of a registration record taken by the municipal health authority, not a medically verified “Live" birth documented as occurring at a Hawaiian hospital, per an officially defined "vital event" designated by the U.S. Department of Health, National Vital Statistics Division protocols.

By Penbrook Johannson
Editor of the Daily Pen

In August, 1961, two announcements allegedly showing a “native” birth for Barack Obama were published in Hawaii’s two primary newspapers, the Sunday Advertiser and the Honolulu Star. For more than three years since Obama engaged his unvetted candidacy for the presidency, many of his supporters have mistakenly lauded these blurbish announcements as the "holy grail" of proof that he was born in the state of Hawaii.

However, a detailed investigation of the history and procedures used by Hawaii’s municipal health department, and its relationship with the newspapers, shows that not only was it a matter of official policy that Obama’s birth would have been announced in the paper regardless of where he was born, the information used to publish the announcements is not even confirmed through any eye-witness, medical authority or hospital representative in the state.

In 1961, the two newspapers shared the same address and facility for their publishing operations which means they received only one copy of the same vital records information from the Department of Health. Therefore, the format and content of information used in "vital event" public announcements, including births, deaths, divorces and marriage applications, were published identically by both papers, including any mistakes, omissions, order or context. No investigation was carried out by the papers' editors to determine if the information provided by the DOH was actually accurate or, in the case of birth announcements, if the address published and provided by the registrant had any association with the geographic location of the actual birth. More than 1200 birth announcements between 1960 and 1965 were shown to contain Hawaiian addresses for registrants of births outside of the state of Hawaii, including more than three hundred in which the child was born outside of the United States.

The two newspapers have long since collaborated into one organization.

Now, however, data from the archive of the U.S. Department of Health’s 1961 Report on Vital Statistics of the U.S – Volume 1: Natality, and Hawaii’s Administrative rules governing the creation of vital records finally reveals the truth about how these announcements were published and why they are mistakenly used by uneducated pundits to promote a misguided message about Obama's natal history.

The Daily Pen’s, Dan Crosby, engaged a two month long research project on location in Hawaii, to, once and for all, close the door on questions about the facts and bring the long-due invalidation of the authority of these fallow Hawaiian birth announcements, in quaint, remote newspapers, to confirm Obama's eligibility to be president.

Recall, for more than two years, major media personalities, such as Bill O’reilly, Chris Matthews and recently fired, Keith Olbermann have enjoyed a willful ignorance in support of Obama's legitimacy while poking fun with these announcements essentially saying to their viewers that the very presence of these announcements means only one of two exclusive options: 1. They are a legitimate and accurate indication of Obama’s geographic birth in Hawaii, or 2. They are the result of some crazy 50-year-long conspiracy concocted by members of Obama’s family and newspaper editors at the time in order to enable Obama to use the announcements some time later as primary evidence that he was born in Hawaii in the event he might run for president some day.

In his investigation, Crosby found confirmed and easily accessible evidence that neither of these choices apply to Obama’s records. In fact, the explanation is far less sensational and simple that it reveals that Mr. Obama (Barry Soetoro) simply benefitted from a commonly used administrative practice in the state of Hawaii which was applied for literally thousands of births which were registered there, but which did not occur there. In doing so, Obama appears to have benefitted from a coincidental set of passive circumstances in which the choice to register his birth in Hawaii also allowed him to engage native U.S. citizenship status, not Natural Born status.

The announcements were a fringe benefit to his eligibility facade which merely occur as a consequence of the non-native birth registration process. However, the primary reason for his family registering his birth in Hawaii was to make sure he was eligible for something far less significant than the presidency. His grandparents wanted to make sure Obama could receive state financial assistance and medical care as an infant of an unemployed, wayward teenage mother and a foreign dead-beat, alcoholic, bigamist.

“The birth announcements were printed from unconfirmed information provided to the Newspapers by the Department of Health who received the information from Obama's grandparents, not a hospital," says Crosby in a phone call from Oahu.

“This information was publish without the DOH or newspaper editors confirming the actual location of the birth in any hospital or location in Hawaii. I found thousands of birth registration records of children born outside of Hawaii who have their announcements published in these two newspapers."

Crosby says this information can be determined by cross-referencing public records with birth announcements and associating the addresses with a residential directory and the natality data provided by Hawaii to the U.S. Department of Health's U.S. Vital Records Report.

Recall that Hawaii Revised Statute 338-17.8 allows the state Health Department to register the foreign birth of any child as a native Hawaiian birth if the parents of that child can be proven to the satisfaction and criteria of the Director of the Department of Health only, they were residence of Hawaii within one year of the birth, regardless of the location of the birth. This law then mandates that the vital records registrar must register the birth with the vital records office in coordination with an official, original Hawaiian birth record. This law originated during Hawaii's territorial era beginning with births in 1911 and was most recently revised in 1982 to allow the Health Department's director to assume autonomous authority over the evaluation of applicants.

“The Health Department director has complete autonomy in determining whether a foreign applicant qualifies for an original birth record under Hawaii's administrative rules," added Crosby

"Essentially, this means that former Health Department director, Chiyome Fukino single-handedly determined the eligibility of Obama to be President of the U.S."

"Regardless," he continued, "They (newspaper editors) don’t even confirm 'native' birth status. The newspaper doesn’t care if the birth occurred in the local hospital. They don’t even print the address of the birth. They publish the address of the registrant, not the birth place. They merely published information provided to them directly and exclusively from the Department of Health in 1961, which means that any birth meeting the criteria of this law can be registered in Hawaii, and therefore is published in a newspaper announcement. Obama could have been born on Mars and it wouldn't matter to the DOH or the newspapers.”

“The birth location is mistakenly implied to be Hawaii by people because the address of the registrant is Hawaiian as it appears in this newspaper. I also found several birth records in Japan for birth's registered in Hawaii.”

A review of all the birth announcements in Hawaii in 1961 reveals other evidence suggesting a disconnect between the Department of Health and Hawaii’s hospitals.

First of all, as shown by Crosby, all the announcements show the parents as married and living at the same address.

“This is not merely a majority of the announcements, this is actually all of them. Every single one! Approximately 16,000 in all!” Crosby said.

He continued, “This is a significant indication that the newspapers actually do not investigate the information provided by the DOH (Department of Health). If they did, they would have seen that there are more than 1040 births recorded in Hawaii in 1961 in which the parents were not married and/or only the mother is recorded as the parent, yet the papers still publish Mr. and Mrs. ‘Whoever’ in the announcement because that is the information registered, not medically verified.”

If the DOH doesn’t include accurate information about the parents marital status for birth announcements, in all cases, what makes people conclude a native birth even though the DOH also omits accurate information about the location of the birth, as well? Crosby also discovered that the announcements are in a tale-tell order which exposes a shocking fact about Obama’s birth announcements.

"Also," says Crosby, "just an interesting little side-note, we have all been told that Obama's parents were married sometime in early 1961. There are thousands of marriage application announcements published in these newspapers between 1960 and 1962, which were also published from registration information provided by the same DOH vital records office as Hawaii's birth registration announcements. There is no marriage application announcement for Dunham and Obama Sr. anywhere in the volumes I've researched."

Crosby admittedly found that a marriage application registration was provided under different administrative rules in 1961 than those applied to information in birth announcements. A marriage is not a medical procedure like a live birth. However, he says that it fits the Obama "black out" theme that critical information about his parent's vague, fleeting relationship would also stem from the same suspicious vital records reporting municipality.

“Did anyone notice the birth announcements are not in any alphabetic order, or in order of birthdate?" asked Crosby, "This is because, in 1961, birth registration numbers were issued based on the location of the local Vital Records office in which the registration was recorded. The hospital does not assign these numbers, the DOH does. It appears that Obama’s birth was registered in an office not used by any of the hospitals' registration locations who only received medically verified "Live Birth" certificates from either Kapi'olani Medical Center, or Queen's Medical Center. These had access to a local registrar near those facilities,” said Crosby.

He continued, “It appears Obama’s birth was registered with the satellite office near his grandparent’s home some distance from the offices nearest to and most used by the hospitals, a location not commonly used by any medical facility. This particular office was commonly used by indigenous people of Hawaii wanting to record births of children outside of the city. This is why the U.S. Department of Health created the Certificate of Live Birth template in 1959 with a check box indicating whether or not the child was born in the city limits and if the residence of the mother was a farm or not. It appears Obama’s birth at least did not occur in the city of Honolulu and, at most, did not even occur in the state of Hawaii.”

In 1956, the National Vital Statistics Division of the U.S. Department of Health issued a revised template version of the “Certificate of Live Birth” form to be used by state municipalities to record and medically verify births. Since Hawaii had not yet become a state, these revisions to the template would not be used in Hawaii until 1959. Therefore, birth records created after 1959 were subject to demographic clarifications and metrics prescribed by the federal authority of the U.S. Department of Health, not the state of Hawaii.

“This also explains why Obama’s birth announcements appear in the succession of announcements where and when they do. His alleged “Certification of Live Birth” is not approved by any federal authority as an official source of demographic data or medical verification of his birth. It is merely a record of birth registration. Therefore, the order of printing of announcements in the local papers comes directly from the list which is ordered based on the birth registration office location, not the chronological or alphabetical order of the medically verified birth.”

Crosby says the difference between a "medically verified” live birth and a “birth registration” are significant. A live birth is witnessed by a doctor, a birth registration is simply recorded by administrative authority without witnessing the birth.

"Obama's birth registration announcement appears deeper in the column of the paper because his birth was not a medical certificate provided by a hospital like the births shown above his. Walk-in birth registrations are treated differently in the reporting process. They seem to get 'second billing' based on registration indexing," said Crosby

Crosby interviewed former U.S. Dept. of Health Vital Records administrator, Martin Hesch in order to gain understanding of the different procedures and authorities used to create vital records and public announcements in a medical verification process as opposed to merely registering a vital event with a municipal office.

“I think people want to believe a simple equation to this issue,” said Hesch, when asked why he thought so many people ignorantly believe what they are told about Obama’s records.

“Notice that none of the birth announcements published in Hawaii then show the address of the birth place. Why do you think that is?" Hesch asked rhetorically.

"Because the papers had no way of knowing in most cases...too many were born outside of Hawaii. That is why too many people wrongly think that a birth announcement in a local paper is somehow an automatic indication of a local birth. Unfortunately, they wrongly accept a locally appearing birth announcement as an indication of medically confirmed ‘local birth’ and that just simply is not the way it is in most cases in Hawaii in early part of its history. The media also wants Barack Obama’s natal circumstances and documentation to fit the traditional record model because it is too disturbing to them to think that they were so easily deceived… but we also now know they do not fit this model.”

Hesch went on to explain that there two primary authorities to consider when understanding vital records administration. First, you have the medical verification of a vital event, like a birth or death, which is established by a licensed medical professional. Then you have the administrative process implemented by the municipal authority which documents, records and files vital records for the purpose of reporting data to various federal agencies like the Census Bureau and the U.S. Department of Health, the CDC, FEMA, etc.

“Birth events and deaths are unique because they require medical verification in the form of official original documentation attested by a medical authority, and, most importantly, the possession of that original documentation is maintained by the local authority,” says Hesch.

“However, a birth registration does not require the original presiding medical professional because, ironically, a state's Department of Health will be headed by a medical doctor who professional title affords surrogate authority in declaring a 'live' birth."

Aside from obvious complications that may occur during birth, medical verification for births are necessary because in some intances, when a baby is born alive for a only a brief period, or if the child is still-born, the attendant must be legally qualified to determine if the baby was alive or deceased at the moment of birth. If the baby was born alive, the DOH must file a "Certificate of Live Birth" and a "Death Certificate", signed by the same doctor. If the baby is still-born, a "Certificate of Live Birth" is not filed, only a "Death Certificate" is. This is significant for manner in which the birth is treated for natality data reporting by the DOH.

"A registration can occur anywhere in the U.S. because an administrative process such as that used in birth registrations (not medical verifications), marriages, divorces or amendments to vital records are presided over by legislative rule, not medical diagnostics," says Hesch.

"This means that they are not exclusive to some originating medical authority where the event occurred. That is not to say that a judge in a divorce case, for example, would not require a medical record in making legal decisions, it just means that the standards used to document administrative processes are far different than those used to document a medically verifiable vital event in the U.S.”

Hesch explained this is why it is possible to publish a birth announcement for a non-native birth. The announcements in the newspapers are the result of the registration records held by the administrative authority, not the records created by the medical authority bound by local geography. A "Certificate of Live Birth" is used by the child's doctor to originate a medical history file, a birth registration is merely used to initiate and reference report data with the federal U.S. Department of Health, National Vital Statistics Division.

“The birth announcement is automatically triggered by the creation of the registration through administrative process, when the municipal record is provided to the newspaper, not the creation of a medical verification record by a medical doctor or hospital,” he said.

“The birth can actually occur anywhere and if the announcement does not disclose the location, there is no way to know from just the public announcement whether the vital event is a local occurrence or not.”

Hesch’s explanation brings clarity to Obama’s birth announcements. Conclusively, Obama’s birth was registered in the state of Hawaii, but the announcements were not an indication that it was medically verified as occurring there.

“So, let me get this straight. People who think that Obama's birth announcements indicate a Hawaiian birth actually believe that the newspaper editors of the 1960’s received thousands of different notices from thousands of different doctors from multiple hospitals and villages throughout Hawaii, and then they organized them in some highly coordinated manner for publication in non-computerized publishing system?” asked Hesch, laughing incredulously.

"That is utterly ridiculous," he continued, “that is why the DOH pools this information and provided it for public announcements and why the newspapers accepted the information from the DOH without verifying the facts. The verification process would have been staggering and way too time intensive to meet deadlines.”

“If people would turn off the T.V. and just investigate this stuff for five minutes, they would feel stupid when they realize how simple and unimpressive the reality of it is,” he said.

In fact, the evidence shows that the original medical verification, in the form of what would be an original, 1961 federal U.S. Department of Health "Certificate of Live Birth" signed by an attending physician and attested by a hospital administrator, simply does not exist in a form or content which would promote Obama’s “natural born status”.

Hesch agreed that there is probably information in the original medical birth record, regardless of its origins, which undermines Obama’s identity as a politician and that is the reason why Obama is refusing to disclose it.

“Oh, sure, he is hiding something,” he said, “...that is a fact, and that is the only reason NOT to disclose it. Because, if the original medical record supported his current identity, he would be stupid to keep it hidden. It would only support him in that case.”

When asked his opinion about Obama’s case, Hesch said that is a certainty in his mind that Obama’s birth documentation was subjected to administrative processes or amendments which probably undermine his ability to be a natural born citizen, and that his medically verified natal records show information that the local vital records authority is able to conceal under the guise of identity protection.

“Of course, it’s ridiculous,” said Hesch, “the Secret Service is not required here. This is natal information about a birth which occurred 50 years ago, not a public appearance where the president is under some threat. The only reason to hide the original record is to protect something Obama doesn’t want people to know about him and how that information adversely impacts his ability to be president. It’s plain and simple to me.”

In the medical verification process, a registered professional of a federal board must document the circumstances and metrics of a birth. However, the administrative process used to the document the event for municipal purposes is not bound by medical requirements to accurately express those same circumstances because the vital records data is applied under different authoritative functions. Census reports, vital records reports and demographic data serve a different purpose than health report data. Hesch explained that the reasons for this level of administrative complexity comes from Hawaii’s historically plural culture where you have indigenous, native Oceanic, Asian and, of course, American peoples mixing in the population. Since Hawaii is unique in this and that it was a remote, detached territory prior to becoming a part of the U.S., it was necessary to “customize” much of their vital records processes in order to include all those who would be eligible for U.S. citizenry after the island nation became a state. This meant that including non-native births was necessary because the islands of Hawaii were so permeable to migration.

Therefore, it has now been confirmed by authorities in Hawaii and abroad that Obama’s birth announcements appeared in two local Hawaiian newspapers without the birth having been medically verified as occurring in Hawaii. The announcements are automatically triggered from information provided by the Department of Health, not the hospital. Therefore, since we already know that Hawaii's Health Department registered foreign births, the announcements would include births for these registrations as well, along with local birth registrations.

As a final statement to Bill O’reilly, Chris Matthews and the remaining ignorant slew of media hacks, we would like to say this:

Your failure to investigate these facts has undermined your profession and made you look pathetically wanton as journalists. If you would have taken just two more steps in your shallow observations, just one more level down into the actual truth, you have come to the same facts about Obama’s natal history as the internet community has. Instead, you chose to glance at the drive-by message and believe what some deceitful political animal told you about the matter.

Now, Obama has made you look like a fool.

As spring break begins school children and Phil have yet another week of taxpayer paid vacation.

Across the country, thousands of students will travel to Washington, DC. The trips, funded by bake sales and other events throughout the year, will allow the students to take in Washington's historic landmarks.

One premier destination is off-limits this year, however. A few weeks ago, the obama Administration announced it was suspending public, self-guided tours of the White House as a result of the automatic sequester cuts that the administration proposed in 2011. While America's students stand outside the White House fence, the First Daughters, Sasha and Malia, are enjoying spring break with friends at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas...

The principal reason the White House canceled public tours was to save money on Secret Service staff. The White House reported that suspending the tours would save $74,000. Other reports have put the savings at just $18,000 a week.

Whichever the true amount, the Secret Service detail necessary to protect the First Daughters on their spring break could have easily been used to keep the White House open to the rest of America's school children.

Budget: 41% Increase in Income Taxes

obama released his long-delayed budget blueprint. Arriving more than two months after the statutory deadline, the budget contains a mix of increased spending, higher taxes and very little real deficit reduction. The White House is quick to argue that the increased taxes fall only on the wealthy, by limiting deductions and credits. The budget document itself, however, shows personal incomes taxes soaring 41%, as a share of the economy, over the next decade.
" Apr 10, 13 4:48 PM

soaring 41%, as a share of the economy, over the next decade Buried deep on page 191 of obama's budget is a table showing tax collections as a share of the overall economy. Last year, personal income tax collections by the government equaled 7.3% of the economy. Under Obama's budget, however, income tax collections as a share of the economy would spike to 10.3% by 2023. This represents a 41% increase in just a decade.

In others words, the government will take 41% more out of personal income than it did last year. This isn't some "shared sacrifice" to whittle down the deficit or the overall debt, either. Even with the government taking so much more of the economy in taxes, spending will still outpace revenue collection.

Democrats are Blocking Resolution to Honor Lady Thatcher
One would naturally think it impossible that anyone would hesitate – even for an instant – to honor the woman who tackled communism head on as prime minister of Great Britain. Lady Margaret Thatcher was a principled politician who helped to foster the special relationship between Great Britain and the United States that we all benefit from today.
A Senate resolution to honor Lady Thatcher was supposed to pass last night. However, per well placed sources on the Hill, Democrats have a hold on the resolution.
To refuse to honor a woman of such great historical and political significance, who was deeply loyal to the United States, is petty and shameful. One truly has to wonder, what is it about Lady Thatcher that gives them pause? Her unfaltering commitment to freedom? More likely the way she fought for individual liberty and limited government?

Said it's too disturbing for you and me
It'll just breed anger that's what the experts say
If it was up to me I'd show it everyday
Some say this country's just out looking for a fight
Well, after 9/11 man I'd have to say that's right

Have you forgotten how it felt that day?
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside going thru a living hell
And we vowed to get the one’s behind bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

I've been there with the soldiers
Who've gone away to war
And you can bet that they remember
Just what they're fighting for

Have you forgotten all the people killed?
Yeah, some went down like heroes in that Pennsylvania field
Have you forgotten about our Pentagon?
All the loved ones that we lost and those left to carry on
Don't you tell me not to worry about bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten?
Have you forgotten?" Apr 25, 13 6:48 PM

“NYTimes Confirms: Massive Fraud at USDA in Pigford; Breitbart Vindicated,” blared the headline

Conservative bloggers cheered The New York Times on Friday for a 5,000-word investigative report dissecting abuse of a federal program to compensate farmers who had faced discrimination that writers on the right said vindicated the work of one of their icons — the late Andrew Breitbart.

“Today Andrew Breitbart is smiling, and probably amazed,” the Washington Examiner’s Byron York wrote on Twitter. “New York Times goes deep into Pigford scandal.”

Pigford Was About Buying Votes

Even the New York Times has trouble getting Department of Justice officials to speak on record on the story. The Times says, "Acting Associate Attorney General Tony West, who supervised the civil division and oversaw the handling of the cases, canceled an interview. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. also declined to comment."

This 2008 article from the San Francisco Chronicle profiles Tony West, who was then the California finance co-chair for the Obama campaign and is described as an "Obama power broker." West, a deep Obama campaign insider, oversaw the settlements for the Obama administration.

This is another indication that the Pigford scandal was about vote buying and elections for the politicians involved. Much of the original Pigford corruption traces to Arkansas. That was no accident but was at the behest of the man who was President when the first Pigford settlement was designed, Bill Clinton. From the Times:

Senators Caught on Tape: "Confiscate, Confiscate, Confiscate"
By Darryl R. Isherwood | May 10th, 2013 - 4:27pm

Second Amendment rights advocates are fuming today over words from three Democratic state senators caught on tape after Thursday's hearing on the upper chamber's gun control package.

The three female senators, who sound from the recording to be Sen. Loretta Weinberg, Sen. Sandy Cunningham and Sen. Linda Greenstein, are heard discussing the just-closed hearing.

“We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate," said one of them.

Weinberg said she had no idea which one of them had said confiscate. The next voice, which is clearly Weinberg, said, “They want to keep the guns out of the hands of the bad guys, but they don’t have any regulations to do it."

Next up was Cunningham: “They don’t care about the bad guys. All they want to do is have their little guns and do whatever they want with them.”

Like I have said to both you and Mr Z and Dan in the past . A flat consummation tax would be very fair if done correctly. food and medicine would of coarse have to be exempt. after that the more you consume the more you pay. want to buy a yacht pay your 15 % and your done, it would eliminate the fear of being audited as a political weapon and the 15 % would be more than enough to run the country in a responsible manner." May 14, 13 10:44 PM

A simple VAT would eliminate the fear and anxiety associated with taxes, but only if done in place of any other federal tax. You could still have property tax for locale services. but that is it! The government must live within its means and stick to spending only what it has. NO MORE PRINTING and BORROWING!

Whats the matter Phil to simple for you.after what we saw this week it seems the right time to have this national discussion. I just hope now the media will give Rand Paul a chance to explain this to the people." May 14, 13 10:55 PM

Reagan warned us of an individual like obama 40 years ago. Those who understand what it means to lead and what it means to have an economy that is prosperous knew during Reagan as we know today government cannot spend its way to prosperity.

As Reagan stated years ago, government is the problem, not the solution.

“Do we still know the freedoms that the Founding Fathers had intended for us?”

Man could we use a man like that now.

Why the Pigford Fraud Must Be Exposed, Especially to the Youth
1 May 2013

For today’s American youth--the so-called “Entitlement Generation," with twisted attitudes towards hard work, success, proper compensation, and the relationship between the three--the Pigford fraud, with its handouts based on little to no evidence of discrimination or even being a farmer, is the last thing that is needed right now.
The Entitlement Generation, generally those currently aged 21 to 31, is criticized for expecting material rewards in the absence of earning them through hard work, feeling entitled to them--hence the cynical nickname. So when $50,000 checks are being handed out by the federal government to those claiming to have farmed or “attempted to farm” without any proof of doing so and without evidence of discrimination in lending practices, what message does this send? Especially to the youth?

Democrats had control of BOTH Houses from 2006 to 2010. Infact the Denate was bullet proof until Brown was seated as a replacement for Kennedy.

Ya think MAYBE.... the priority should have been the economy and jobs, rather than stealing control of 16% of the GDP? With another ponzy scheme?

“This is extremely troubling because the axiom is, the power to tax is the power to destroy,” she said. “And now with the implementation of Obamacare at hand, and knowing that it is the IRS that will be the enforcing mechanism for this new entitlement program, it’s very important and reasonable to ask if a person’s access to health care may be based upon their political or religious beliefs.”

She said questions like that “would’ve been considered out of bounds a week ago.”

“Today, these questions are considered more than reasonable for the American people,” she said.

The ends don't justify the means - unless you're a power-grabbing Progressive out to change the world.

We're witnessing the rapid decline of American liberty and freedom because Americans no longer possess the moral and cultural values they once possessed.

Too many Americans are low-information voters simply looking for government hand-outs. This corrupt Administration simply reflects the quality of the electorate.

The heresy of Fox News is not just that it criticizes the Obama administration or that it provides a platform for conservative opinion, but that it rejects the attempt to place Obama beyond politics and accountability. It refuses, in other words, to endorse the idea that Obama inhabits a unique category, beyond the obvious (and, for most governing purposes, meaningless) historic fact that he is the nation's first black president.

Democrats use race to defend Obama from criticism, but race is not what makes him special to the left. It is but one way in which he embodies an idea that existed long before him and will persist after he leaves office--namely, the Hegelian notion that the redistributionist state represents the fulfillment of history, that the noble intentions of the left make it morally superior, by default, regardless of their practical consequences.

Obama not only shares his party's belief in its moral superiority but also embodies it in his own person. His preference for the word "I" is but one symptom. In a recent, typical example, he told the media: "I've still got 60,000-plus troops in Afghanistan," as if those soldiers serve him personally and at his pleasure. The corollary: his critics must be motivated by personal hatred or bigotry, not any independent principles.

That conviction, in the Obama inner circle, is what likely justified the hostile treatment of Fox News, which led to the abusive investigation of reporter James Rosen and others. Unlike the Nixon administration, which was suffused with paranoia, the Obama White House suffers from an excess of self-regard. It is threatened less by opposition than by independence--and by the idea that we must be students of, not servants of, history.

Well, the "journalists" among the establishment media felt that the 2nd Amendment had outlived its usefulness when they acted like cheerleaders for the current administration and helped promote the call for more "gun control".

As they sink under the weight and the hubris of Supream Leader's administration they so willingly supported, perhaps they will have to come to terms with the fact that the 1st Amendment has outlived its usefulness.
