The Justice Department’s chilling
‘targeted killings’ memo

Washington Post, by James Downie

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/5/2013 9:35:50 PM

On Monday night, NBC News’s Michael Isikoff published a Justice Department memo justifying the “targeted killings” — without due process — of U.S. citizens who are leaders in al-Qaeda or “associated forces” but are “outside the area of hostile activities,” such as Afghanistan. The document is based on a still-classified memo on targeted killings of U.S. citizens prepared by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel. The summary memo is a chilling document, full of twisted definitions, gaping loopholes and hints that the White House still isn’t sharing its full justification for killing citizens

The WH is probably going to start (continue??) bombing US embassies - targeting their own State Dept. employees.

Is the Washington Post finally starting to get that Barack Obama is not what they thought he was. The man is a megalomanic psychopath who is willing to destroy this country in a vain attempt to set up a form of government that has proven time and time again not to work!

Impeach him now, remove him from office and save this country from his insane plans!

When you have criminals running the White House and DOJ, how can anything be criminal?

Obama´s unconstitutional acts aren´t subject to judicial review and even if they were,they´d wind up on the desk of Sotomayor or Kagan,two loyal Obama hacks.

There can´t be more than a small handful of Americans working with alqueda,at least on the ground in other countries. However I´ll bet there´s quite a few working with alqueda and other radical splinter groups in the state dept,including Hillary before she left.

The state dept. is replete with career america haters who have gotten a golden opportunity to undermine the country with obama in charge.

I think the whole wikileaks operation was done with the cooperation of high ranking state dept. people hoping to expose dirt on something Bush did wrong. After pouring through countless cables,they couldn´t find anything and wikileaks became old news.

Poster #1 makes a point.

Is the non-response and the subsequent lack of interest in the Benghazi issue because it´s another type of rogue ´Fast & Furious´ action in the middle east?

“associated forces” but are “outside the area of hostile activities,”
So, this could mean a TEA party meeting, or a rally of Oath Keepers or even the Salvation ARMY ?
Overly broad..proof that this government cannot be trusted.

Makes Benghazi a little clearer. They were expendable. This regime is on the verge of ruthlessness and it will be lethal and legal.

I am beginning to have a really sick feeling that the psychopath in the WH might actually get off on killing people. I will never, ever, forget the night of the 2008 election when the creep summarily dismissed his wife and children from the stage so he could stand--ALONE--and bask in THE GLORY THAT IS BARACK OBAMA, before his adoring minions. After that, isn´t having complete carte blance to kill whomever you want just the logical next step? Talk about "malignant narcissism"! God help us all.

If you put any value on Ulsterman and the ´White House Insider´, Tin Pot (love that term!) gets off on watching the vids of the drone kills, especially when women and children are snuffed. And the drones get smaller and smaller...

Sorry if I sound paranoid, but to me it´s only a matter of time before certain dissenters and criticizers of the current regime in the US and internationally mysteriously turn up dead on short walks for ice cream, or walking alongside mysteriously exploded cars or post boxes. If I were Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, I´d be most cautious indeed.

I have a question for you all to quietly consider to yourselves.

You all should know by now that NBC is amongst the besf known state run media, it´s the top of the list. WaPo runs in a close second.

Do you honestly think for a moment that NBC or WaPo would betray Dear Leader and leak anything?

Think carefully before you answer.

It was a planned release. Now. Ask yourselves, why? Why would Droner in Cheif leak on himself? Read between the lines.

Fear and control. More divide and conquer. The left and progressives whine, "If you are doing nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear."

Really? Prove it. Because, from where the sane half or so of this country stands, there are no longer any rules, and everything is upside down. What was wrong now seems right, and what was right now makes a civilian a terrorist.

Now. Was it a leak? No. It was a planned assault on our senses. It worked.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
