The Enigma of Barack Obama
PJ Media, by Michael Walsh

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/1/2014 10:03:43 AM

Put me down in the Roger Simon camp on this one: without wandering into Birther territory or the inconclusive musings of Jerome Corsi… who the heck is this guy, really? To put it bluntly: nobody knows nothin’ about the president of the United States, aka the leader of the free world. (Snip) Has there been a modern presidential candidate about whom we know less than the former Barry Soetoro? Other than what he’s told us about himself in Dreams from My Father — a book proven even by sympathetic biographers to be filled with fabrications (“a man one step removed from his own life,” according to David Maraniss)?

Reminds me of the picture of Rod Serling captioned:
Imagine... if you will
A President who orders the collection of virtually every fact about American Citizens,
yet... has all of his own records sealed by Court Order before running for President.

The Obama File, www.theobamafile.com, is a comprehensive resource of information that attempts to answer the same question: who IS this guy?

We still don´t know. The secrecy has been amazing and air-tight. Something will eventually leak out sooner or later, but of course it is already too late.

I would not have believed the news media, liberal and biased as it is, capable of such journalistic malpractice if I hadn´t witnessed it. Far from trying to find out more about Obama and who he really is, they have devoted all their energies to keeping Americans from learning anything about him by pretending that such questions are illegitimate and irrelevant.

So we still don´t know anything about a man who is in his second term as president except what he wants us to know. And he doesn´t want us to know very much at all. Hardly anything.

Call me superficial, call me racist, but back in 2007 I said electing anyone with a third world name like Barack Hussein 0bama would be a major mistake just on the face of it.

He hasn´t fooled me for one second and I - along with most of us here- were 100% correct.

Unfortunately, given the destruction wrought by this clown, I find little solace in saying "I told ya so" to my liberal friends . . . But it helps.

Anyone who could watch the video of Rev. Wright stand up in that so-called church and hear him scream at the top of his lungs, "God bless America" Npo, no, no.! God damn America," and know that 0bama sat for 20 years in that congregation and not know who 0bama is --to have to ask that question now, is willfully stupid and blind.

To know that 0bama´s grandpappy was best friends with Frank Marshall Davis --a pedophile and avowed Communist, and and have to ask now, Who is Barack 0bama, is among the most ignorant on the planet.

I am sick of these "pundits" coming out now, five years late asking that question. Every time I see one of these articles I want to grab the author and shake him until his filling fall out.

Articles like this are just purely stupid, and no, I didn´t waste my time on it. Why start the new year off with a total waste of the day? I have a ham to cook and deviled eggs to make.

We know enough about who and what Obama is. In fact, most of us here at Lcom knew prior to his election in ´08 because we vote with our head, not our heart. Unfortunately, millions of our fellow countrymen are willfully blind and possessed of the urge to vote themselves a raise by, as the poster above said, electing Santa. Some of them are now realizing that Santa has torpedoed their liberty and their prosperity, but it´s too little, too late!
I have nothing but contempt for them and their Santa.

#4 nails it.
When the fraud Obama was still in Chicago politics Alan Keyes gave us some insight on the character of Obama. I remember and knew who he was in 2005.
It´s testament to complicity of the media that for starters we don´t know his real name. He was adopted, given the Soetoro name and at what point did he ´legally´ change it to Obama. Do we have a president with an alias? Even that is questioned before the grades, SS#, birth place, actual attendance in school as a foreign student. Too many unanswered questions to make this person what ever his name is legitimate.

FTA:" For make no mistake, the election of Barack Obama in 2008 was not simply one man’s triumph (and a remarkable story, whichever way you look at it) but the triumph of a Baby Boomer media that saw in him the culmination of everything it had “fought” for."

Mix in a large dollop of white guilt and you have a very toxic and dangerous pie.

I can´t imagine how much time the President spends watching all these television shows! I do believe, though, that staff at the White House, in their heart-of-hearts, believe they are going to the set of the "West Wing" every day.

Thing is if you plop down in front of the t.v. for hours you get yourself into this passive state where you just receive and never act on anything. Maybe that´s how some people become lo-fo´s.

A child who went to a Muslim Madras . A member of a Communist Youth Organization. The list is a mile long. Not to mention his Fraudulent BC,SSN and Draft Card.

Michael Walsh starts out by saying ´birthers aside....´. Why? the stuff of his article is what those, now long derided as birthers, were asking about long before 2008.There are far too many holes in Obama´s "story" to think he hasn´t been engineered as the perfect stool pigeon to implement the destruction and bankruptcy of the great USA. It is utterly frustrating that Obama has made fools of so many, and worse still, continues to do so.

After five years of him, Barack "The Dude" Obama is no enigma to anybody. An ignorant, arrogant communist who´s done nothing worthwhile in his life, he´s bent on wrecking America and plunging the world into darkness. With any luck, he´ll not make it. The world is finally waking up to the stupidity of Marxism but it will take America at least another few years.

A point #10 makes and bears repeating again and again: had we had real journalists, if only we had more today, we might have been spared the tyranny of this duplicitous, false man and his cohorts.

These media people were and are supremely racist: they dared not investigate and analyse truthfully lest their fellow snotty boobinskies look askance at them and leave them off their hoity-toity guest lists.

How technology helped crack the
Kansas City highway shooter case
Los Angeles Times, by Matt Pearce    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 4/21/2014 5:04:51 AM     Post Reply
For almost a month, Kansas Citians lived through what amounted to a horror movie without an ending. According to the narrative described in court documents, it would take cutting-edge and occasionally controversial law enforcement technology, including license-plate readers, to put an end to the horror show. The story of this very 21st century hunt began playing out on the tangle of freeways just south of Kansas City, Mo., where, starting in March, one driver after another reported being shot at by a mystery gunman — nobody they knew, for reasons nobody could fathom. The suspect would later be identified as a driver wearing

The war on standards

Paul has been writing about the war on standards in various aspects of our society, generally as a means of advancing the interests of minorities (or purporting to advance them, anyway). Now it appears that the decline of standards–indeed, the abolition of any standards at all–has come to the world of college debate. The Atlantic reports: These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But

The government has no business owning (or administering) all of this land. I am willing to concede federal courthouses and even the national parks to the feds, (even though some of the parks were created as a result of brutal land grabs. Shenandoah National Park which I look out at as I write this is an example.) but why is practically all of the far West run by the Federal Government? Here’s another thing I’ll concede. The feds get a few hundred God forsaken square miles in the northern Nevada desert to do nuclear testing and to dump nuclear fuel. Beyond that? People should own this land.

What can Washington, D.C., learn from a Buddhist monk? In early 2013, I traveled with two colleagues to Dharamsala, India, to meet with the Dalai Lama. (Snip) That same duality was on display in February when the Dalai Lama joined atwo-day summit at my institution, the American Enterprise Institute. At first, his visit caused confusion. Some people couldn’t imagine why he would visit us; as Vanity Fair asked in a headline, “Why Was the Dalai Lama Hanging Out with the Right-Wing American Enterprise Institute?” There was no dissonance, though, because the Dalai Lama’s teaching defies freighted ideological labels.

Oh, Portland. A teenager urinated into one of the city’s drinking water reservoirs the other day. That’s gross, sure, and aggravating—what a brat! But in one of the most spectacularly stupid decisions in years, the city is going to drain the reservoir. (Snip) But is it possible to calculate precisely how illogical Portland’s decision is? Let’s try to put some numbers on it. Several smart people on Twitter quickly did the math and figured that a typical urination of about 1/8 gallon in a reservoir of 38 million gallons amounts to a concentration of 3 parts per billion.

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

It used to be that if you went to a college-level debate tournament, the students you’d see would be bookish future lawyers from elite universities, most of them white.

These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national collegiate tournaments over the past few years. But this transformation has also

According to the World Jewish Congress, 17,000 Jews live in the city. The leaflets were handed out by several Balaclava clad men carrying a Russian flag earlier this week as well as being found plastered to buildings near a synagogue. They ordered all Jews aged 16 and older to register with the separatists, pay a $50 fee and report all motor vehicles and real estate in their possession. The flyers also said

He said the country should reflect on what Christianity brings to Britain. “All over the UK, every day, there are countless acts of kindness carried out by those who believe in and follow Christ,” Cameron said. “The heart of Christianity is to ‘love thy neighbour’ and millions do really live that out.” He mentioned prison ministries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters run by churches.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now." Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including
