DOJ white paper lays legal basis
for drones targeting US citizens

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/5/2013 8:22:32 AM

The Department of Justice has developed a white paper outlining the specific circumstances under which the United States can conduct a lethal drone strike against an American citizen, a copy of which was obtained Monday by NBC News. The paper provides the first detailed look at the criteria the Obama administration uses to judge if it can legally kill American citizens traveling abroad without the benefit of due process. The release of the administration´s legal rationale comes days before CIA nominee John Brennan is scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Panel members, including Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.),

If this doesn´t send a chill down your spine nothing will. With this radical, lawless DOJ involved their nefarious deeds could be just endless.

What does McConnell say about this gross violation against American citizens? What about Boehner?

I know everyone here is going to jump out of their skins, but this is nothing more than an appropriate continuation of the Bush Doctrine which he outlined in his speech to both houses, the nation and the world on Sept. 21, 2001. The best war time speech of our generation. This IS a war like no others and the U S does need tools like this to prosecute that war.
But, you might ask, why is 0bama continuing this doctrine when it clearly can only be used to protect America´s interests?
That is the big question to which the answer probably is - so he can protect his administration from criticism for being weak in all other areas.
Don´t flip out over this. This power will be needed by our leaders on the future.

Couple the new - and now unrestricted use of drones, with the GPS readings taken at every household in the 2010 Census, and several billion rounds of hollow point ammunition, and New York´s SAFE act listing the name of every person who purchases ammunition, and you might get a conspiracy theorist excited.

Talk about your kangaroo court! Obama murders an american teenager in cold blood and then gets his stooge Eric Holder to tell him that it´s legal! Well sorry pal the law says no and no amount of DOJ hogwash will make it right. The constitution says "due process" and a pass from "Fast and Furious" Holder won´t make it okay. The supremes are the arbiters of that and I don´t believe that they were consulted.

Impeach Obama now and fire all his stooges!

Has anyone ever heard of the Posse Comitatus Act to limit the government use of military weapons on it´s own citizens. This was violated in Waco Texas under Janet Reno. Obama and the left is eager to leave citizens defenceless but freely use ever more sophisticated weapons against citizens. Using drones for surveillance of citizens should also be limited and require warrants. Perhaps a compromise could be the ability to declare citizenship suspended for anyone who fights with a jihadist organization especially if they are in some foreign hidout! There was one case of one of these scum who had US citizenship and was killed by a drone. The law should not be based on some exceptional case!

Donors back Mike Huckabee, seen

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know

For now, the "one-stop shopping" experience at Healthcare.gov repeatedly promised by President Obama is still at least one stop short of the goal. In early January, news reports revealed a glaring shortcoming at Healthcare.gov: no function existed to report "life events," such as the birth of a child or a divorce, which could alter coverage needs or eligibility for tax credits. Although this feature was subsequently added, the site still lacks the ability to report changes to basic contact information to a consumer´s insurance company: a new address, email, or phone number. A new topic at the Obamacare website is entitled,

A national group known for its controversial demonstrations against U.S. immigration enforcement policies said it was helping roughly 160 people enter the United States from Mexico, without authorization, through San Diego. Mohammad Abdollahi, a leader of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, told Fox News Latino on Monday that his group, along with others assisting in California, had about 158 people ready to cross the border at the Tijuana-San Diego checkpoint and ask to remain in the United States.

A new film poses the question: What if America didn’t exist? The trailer for “America” made its television debut tonight on “The Kelly File.” Filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza and producer Gerald Molen joined Megyn to discuss the film. D’Souza, who immigrated to the United States, says he “chose America because it’s a place where I can be the architect of my own life.” He said the film is about what makes America lovely. Molen calls the film a love story about America. “Today we have kids who can’t find America on a map,” Molen said. “We have kids who probably can’t

President Obama is coming to Manhattan Tuesday for yet another fund-raiser, hosted by longtime Hillary Clinton friend and bundler Alan Patricof. While the president is flying in on Air Force One for the intimate “fireside chat” at Patricof’s home in front of just 26 people at the $32,400 per ticket event, private equity and venture capital pioneer Patricof has made it clear the fund-raiser is not to bolster Obama, but to boost the Democratic National Committee ahead of a possible Clinton presidential run.

Nothing but hot air from
Senate Democrats´ talkathon

Cynics might well suggest that last night´s global warming “talkathon” by Senate Democrats from deep-blue states provided enough hot air to heat up the atmosphere. But such cynicism would miss the deeper significance of a political maneuver that was difficult to rationalize, even by Washington standards. Led by Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii, the talkathon featured an all-night procession of Democratic senators pouring forth global warming alarmism, derision for global warming “deniers” and strident demands for “action.” Notably absent from the proceedings were Democrats seeking re-election in November from red states -- Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Pryor of Arkansas

In his remarks at the conference over the weekend, the chairman of the group that runs CPAC said that conservatives and establishment Republicans should not spend "one more minute" fighting about candidates, policies, and for the soul of the party. Translation: Unite on the terms favorable to establishment Republicans that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) pointed out has cost Republicans in three of the last four national elections. Cardenas said that conservatives "must stand against this dark loss of freedom" the country is facing by recognizing that threats are "not coming in the form of other conservatives."

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) cannot account for nearly 50,000 foreign students taking advantage of a student work visa program, according to a new report released by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on Friday. The program is a threat to national security and vulnerable to potential terrorists, said Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa), who asked the GAO to review the program. The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP), administered by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), allows individuals on student visas to remain in the country to gain work experience in their chosen fields. However, due to inadequate oversight at DHS, the

Immigration reform may be stalled in Congress, but a new Obama administration policy is extending legal status and military benefits to thousands of illegal immigrants who are the spouses, parents and children of American military members. Supporters say the policy -- which applies to active-duty military, reservists and veterans -- is long overdue. "Those veterans and those men and women who serve in the National Guard certainly deserve the peace of mind that their family members will not be deported," immigration attorney Faye Kolly said. But critics say the policy is tantamount to backdoor amnesty. "A whole class of aliens

The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse."

The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.´s mainstream and "elite" journalists.

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota.

Writing a check on an account with an iffy balance, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told The New York Times that he thinks the Republican establishment is "going to crush [our opponents] everywhere." It took zero-point-zero seconds for that quote to become precisely the sort of rallying point that Republican incumbents would probably rather their opponents not have. The Tea Party-versus-establishment war has rarely been articulated as plainly as in McConnell´s comments. Although it appears that McConnell was probably speaking within the fairly narrow frame of candidates challenging incumbent Republican senators.
