In retrospect, the Democratic Convention highlighted a liar, Elizabeth Warren. She was hired by Harvard law school because she lied about her ethnicity to gain affirmative action benefits, exaggerated her scholarship which was shoddy, practiced law for years in Massachusetts out of her law school office without being a member of that state's bar -- and possibly at the time a member of no bar at all. She gummed on before the crowd about working for the middle class hiding from the audience that she had made hundreds of thousands of dollars representing big corporations
Clarice knows how to tie all the strings together. Elizabeth Warren and her supposed-Indian ancestry, which gained her a teaching position at Harvard, and the law license she doesn't hold, are just the tip of the iceberg.
Actually, it's probably a good thing that she is running for office, because much of her dissembling might have gone un-noticed by Harvard. What an embarrassment to a supposedly superior institution! Never again can Harvard hold its nose in the air as the "crème de la crème" of higher education.
The last four years have been a string of lies by almost all of the players in this Administration, which has become an American tragedy. Hopefully, the American voters have opened their eyes and have had their fill of lies, deceit, distortion, duplicity, dissimulation.
This Administration lies and prevaricates about everything. These people must have been who Mark Twain had in mind when he said: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics."
#3, #4, others: never forget that the Left has one principle, which is the wielding of power. Know that truth and all is clear to you. If they believed free markets would put more power in their hands than statism, we would see Milton Friedman posters in Obama's campaign offices, not Che posters.
#5: Harvard is The New York Times of universities.
Warren is the typical Democrat candidate for political office, liars and frauds. Keep voting Democrat and that's what you get. A perfect example sits in the Oval Office. The Democrat Party needs to be sent a message in November. They should be voted out of all governmental control.
#8, the Democrat Party WAS sent a message in 2010. All across the country, Republicans wiped the floor with dem candidates in a historic election victory. Doesn't seem to matter to the media, et all. They continue like nothing happened in 2010. This election, we must do the same... Wipe the floor with the libs in 2012!

Probably Bill Ayers is running the government thru Valerie Jarrett who controls Obama.
I surely hope the poles are wrong or we are in for a country with no freedom, a country where no one will want to work - just set back and hope the government takes care of them -----until the money runs out and then, we will all be on the streets, begging for just a small piece of bread. It cannot continue like it is going - the poor will not or can't work because they cannot find a job, the wealthy will loose all their money and they will not be able to promote jobs so the poor will remain poor. We are in for a rocky road. Its like the countries overseas who can't find work, food, or any thing to sustain life.
These revelations make sense as to why the fast and furious lies are coming from the Administration. No wonder Hillary looks so worried. SHe has her very own Watergate to weasel out of. The author seems to feel that the press cannot hide it for another 40 days. I hope he is right.
Morsi is also pressing for the release of the Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the "Blind Sheikh," who was behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and who is at the center of an extradition battle in the U.K. trying to evade imprisonment in the United States.
This excerpt from Matt Holtzmann confused me (not that hard to do). Isn't the Blind Sheikh serving a life sentence here? Who is fighting extradition? Maybe I'm reading this wrong or missing some context or other.
Did anyone actually take the time to read the whole article? It is about Obama arming Al Quida? What more does he have to do before we try him for treason?

# 19 I believe there's a typo and the sentence should read Morsi is also pressing for the release of the Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the "Blind Sheikh," who was behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and Al-Masri who is at the center of an extradition battle in the U.K. trying to evade imprisonment in the United States.
FTA: "I can think of no other reason why we had so many former Seals and outside contractors in these locations except that we were trying unsuccessfully to retrieve these arms before they fell in the hands of Al Qaeda."
Clarice gives us a pretty good investigative piece on the Benghazi attack, Obama's role in creating the conditions for that attack, and the signs of a tragically-mishandled coverup.
It's interesting to notice, then, the occasional use of rhetoric in places where proof is not yet present to connect some of the pieces.
Asserting an explanation to be true, based on one's inability to see an alternative explanation, is usually what we see in Liberal handwaving. It's as logically sound as asserting a point to be true because one feels it's got to be true.
#13 ("I surely hope the poles are wrong") -- Not sure what folks in Krakow or Warsaw have to do with our future freedom to begin with; but I'd rather see the Czechs or Hungarians be wrong this time. (Poles get such a bad rap...)
@#24 "...#13 ("I surely hope the poles are wrong") -- Not sure what folks in Krakow or Warsaw have to do with our future freedom to begin with; but I'd rather see the Czechs or Hungarians be wrong this time. (Poles get such a bad rap…)…"
Now, now. We all know what was meant. In the heat of writing, we all may, from time to time plug in the wrong word with the correct spelling.
This opinion piece is NOT about Elizabeth Warren. It's about Obama arming the Islamists who eventually attacked the US Embassy.
Elizabeth Warren is a symptom of a much greater rot at the core of the democrat party. Fast And Furious and the Benghazi cover-up go way beyond Watergate, Rose Law Firm billing records, Cattle Futures, Travel Gate, Valerie Plame, Iran Contra etc etc.
Obama and his administration shouldn't be merely impeached, they should be criminally prosecuted. Which is why I expect a blanket John Doe pardon for anyone why has ever worked for Obama when he gets bounced out of the White House.
I am hoping the Romney Debate coaching team is looking for a way for Mitt to introduce this into the debates. However, although the article is a "good" story, where are the facts to support all these links, i.e. Chicago + Mex drug cartels, Obama's secret orders et alia.
#30...it's too complicated and it doesn't strike home sufficiently to be a major issue. It may warrant a mention, but if one has to explain, it's not an election issue. Now, free phones is another matter.
The revelations that Obama supplies weapons to Al Qaeda really comes as no surprise. If topic of supplying arms came up during the muslim brotherhood installation effort, take it for granted they DID do it. Of course the FBI hasn't been sent in-might uncover the truth. Bamster has been using the office of the presidency to side with our enemies. I feel sorry for Bill, Hillary probably has a headache most nights-kidding that's a good thing. Get out there and campaign(perfect excuse) for our communist commander in chief, Bill. You might get some on the road.
Anyone notice that OCCIC has been taken down, with promises to come back by now passed Sept 25? The "axe" must be at it again.
The trial of the Fort Hood gunman, who is acting as his own attorney, took a surreal turn as the former Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 in the November 2009 attack grilled witnesses -- including his former boss in the military and a fellow Muslim who spoke to him the day of the shooting.. After a short opening statement in which ex-Army Maj. Nidal Hasan called himself a "mujahedeen," admitted to the rampage and said "the dead bodies will show that war is an ugly thing," Hassan cross-examined prosecution witnesses, including retired Lt. Col Ben Kirk Phillips
The best mob story ever told does not involve Al Capone or Bugsy Segal or John Gotti. It involves a mobster few American have ever heard of, Greg Scarpa by name, and his not quite as lethal son, Greg Scarpa Jr., "Junior" going forward. One reason few people ever heard of Scarpa is that until his arrest in September 1992, he worked as a "Top Echelon Confidential Informant" under the protection of the FBI for the most of the thirty years prior. During that time, Scarpa murdered at least fifty people.
Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard and regular commentator at Fox news, has said the closing of U.S. embassies in 21 countries is a sign of weakness on the part of the U.S. and suggests capitulation to al-Qaeda. He may be partly right, but chances are that the closing of the embassies auger something far more ominous. The shutdowns may be a sign of an increased conflagration in the Middle East and Northern Africa. We may be looking at the onset of World War III.
The fight is on. A growing — and furious — fight between the conservative base of the Republican Party and its Establishment elites in Washington is rapidly taking shape. Senator Ted Cruz took to Sean Hannity’s television show Tuesday night and took on Karl Rove, who had immediately preceded him on the show. In response to Rove’s strategy (Rove compared the defunding strategy to the famous — and losing — Pickett’s Charge of the Battle of Gettysburg). Cruz immediately countered by saying that while he wasn’t a military strategist he was pretty sure 100% of battles
In a perverse bit of post-trial agitprop, ABC News somehow recruited the one woman of color on George Zimmerman´s "all white" jury and twisted her words to reflect the presumed editorial position of ABC News. In this clip from an exclusive Robin Roberts interview which has played just about everywhere including CBS News, Roberts says to the juror, "Some people have said, point blank, ´George Zimmerman got away with murder.´ How do you respond to those people who say that?" In the edited video ABC floated about, "Maddy" answers unhesitatingly, "George Zimmerman got away with murder.
It should come as no surprise that some of the very worst rants about George Zimmerman’s acquittal are coming from an Ivy League professor. The competition is stiff, but will be hard-pressed to keep up with Anthea Butler, an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Pennsylvania. The Zimmerman verdict has caused Butler to conclude that God is “a white racist god with a problem” who “is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.” There are conclusions Butler could have reached short of equating her caricature of Zimmerman with God.
Toward the end of his closing statement on Thursday, Florida Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda posted a slide on a screen in a fifth-floor Seminole County courtroom. "Which Owner would be more inclined to yell for help?" read the banner on the top of the slide. The slide was divided in two. On the left was a photo of George Zimmerman´s Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun, and on the right was a can of Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail. Beneath the photo of the gun was the question, "Who followed?"
Perhaps I´m just a creepy-a** cracka´ who doesn´t get it. But it always seems that when it comes to standards, the left gives you two for the price of one. And the idea that white people "can´t" understand black folks -- a similar point to which was made in a recent article about the George Zimmerman trial -- is a good example. But before getting to that particular piece, I have a question: is the issue here that one race simply cannot understand another? Or is this really just restricted to white people?
1.The Sound of Wet Grass: Black Racists´ War on Black Women The Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case has come to trial this week and the best thing that´s been said about it is from Thomas Maguire: "I´m proud to say I live in a country where the show trials look more like an SNL [Saturday Night Live] skit." You probably won´t know that if your source of information about the trial is the mainstream media and if your lifestyle doesn´t permit you to sit in front of the TV for hours watching the trial.
It´s a miracle! A fascinating and compelling movie whose plot is driven by the protagonist´s fidelity to the Constitution. (In fact there were more mentions of the Constitution than any other movie I have ever seen.) You have never seen a movie like Copperhead, and you ought to take the opportunity to see it on a big screen if you live in one of the forty-some cities where it is opening today. But even if you don´t, it is available today via all on-demand platforms, which is a great strategy to reach the widely dispersed audience
This is what happens when the President of the United States is dragged into making foreign and defense policy decisions, instead of determining American interests and then making policy to suit. And it is what happens when the president fails to make a clear case for those policies not only to the American public, but also to his own cabinet. It had been understood that senior members of the Obama administration wanted to provide arms to Syrian rebel forces in opposition to the Assad regime.
Michelle Obama has been capitalizing on her status as a descendant of slaves. Her latest junket to Ireland shows she is definitely enjoying the 21st-century benefits of the transatlantic slave trade her radical friends in Chicago refer to as "genocide" by white Americans. According to the First Couple´s pals, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Rahm Emanuel, and Dr. Conrad W. Worrill of Northeastern University, white Americans should monetarily compensate black Americans for past slavery.
WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.
The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking
Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster. In the second term, there is little
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP’s future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
The U.S. State Department issued a global alert about the terrorist threat allegedly posed by Al-Qaeda in Yemen. The USA announced the closure of its missions in the Middle East and Africa, and their example was followed by France, Britain, and Germany. However, this was only an attempt to justify the activities of the National Security Agency.Last Saturday, right after alerting of the terror threat civilians and BOLO complex ("be on the lookout") that includes law enforcement and federal officials, President Barack Obama went to play golf, and then celebrated his birthday at the presidential retreat at Camp David.
In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.
Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach
A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –
Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda
The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential
