The video at is a new John McCain attack ad against JD Hayworth that misleads potential voters, trying to portray Hayworth as a dreaded "Birther".

"I Am The Tea Party Leader" videos: the latest bogus grassroots effort - 02/20/10

The latest bogus grassroots effort from the tea parties is the site (NOTE: see update 2 below before visiting it now) at which the Tea Party "Patriots" encourage their followers to upload videos of them saying "I am the Tea Party Leader". This is a take-off on the "I am Spartacus" line from that movie and a reference to a Democratic Party attempt to do opposition research on their (real) leaders.

Peter Wallsten misleads about Lou Dobbs (now an amnesty supporter?) - 11/25/09

Peter Wallsten (formerly of the Los Angeles Times, now with the Wall Street Journal) offers "Dobbs Reaches Out to Latinos, With Politics in Mind" (link), which contains this misleading statement (bolding added): (Lou Dobbs) is working to repair what a spokesman conceded is a glaring flaw: His reputation for antipathy toward Latino immigrants. In a little-noticed interview Friday, Mr. Dobbs told Spanish-language network Telemundo he now supports a plan to legalize millions of undocumented workers, a stance he long lambasted as an unfair "amnesty." Now, to help illustrate why Wallsten is being...

Will Jerry Brown far-left radio diatribes be used by Gavin Newsom, GOP to portray themselves as mainstream? - 10/21/09

For three years in the 90s, former California governor Jerry Brown had a radio program Berkeley's far-left KPFA. Jack Chang of the Sacramento Bee has obtained copies of some of the programs (link, see [1]) and is ready to reveal some of their shocking contents. He speculates that Gavin Newsom (a strong illegal immigration supporter) and the GOP might use the excerpts against Brown. For instance, consider this shocking bit: [Brown] said U.S. Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, both Democrats, had "sold out" U.S. truck drivers by letting their Mexican counterparts drive uninspected...

Jeb Bush, Mack McLarty, CFR to push immigration "reform" (amnesty) - 07/06/09

According to this, Jeb Bush and Mack McLarty (former chief of staff of Bill Clinton) will this week be presenting a report in support of

Judge James Robertson shows keen lack of intellectual integrity (natural born citizen lawsuit) - 03/06/09

United States District Judge James Robertson has thrown out a lawsuit that was challenging Barack Obama's eligibility to be president. The Associated Press report from Nedra Pickler is here, and the PDF with his ruling is here. The ruling might be correct in legal terms, but the opinions he expresses show that he lacks intellectual curiousity and integrity. From the PDF: This case, if it were allowed to proceed, would deserve mention in one of those books that seek to prove that the law is foolish or that America has too many lawyers with not enough to do. Even in its relatively short life...

Who or what precipitated the financial crisis? (Soros? China? a setup to elect Obama? Did it just happen?) - 02/10/09

Someone needs to snug their tinfoil hat down tight and try to figure out who or what got us into this financial mess. Did it just happen, or was it a deliberate plan in order to make money or help Obama get elected? Consider the attached video featuring Rep. Paul Kanjorski saying the following:

Census Bureau will report directly to Obama, bypass Commerce; to help count illegal aliens, non-citizens - 02/05/09

After complains from black and Hispanic groups, the Obama administration will be requiring the Census Bureau to report directly to the White House, bypassing Judd Gregg, the Republican who was appointed to head the Department of Commerce (link). This is clearly an attempt to make sure that as many illegal aliens and other non-citizens are counted in an attempt to obtain both money and power. Don't just take my word for it, here's an earlier statement from the New Democratic Network admitting as much. After Gregg was appointed, the National Association of Latino Elected Officials - a group...

DHS Deputy Secretary was top United Nations official (Jane Holl Lute) - 01/25/09

From this: A top United Nations official who once served on the White House National Security Council has been picked for deputy secretary of the Homeland Security Department, a move that would place two women at the top of the department for the first time. President Barack Obama's nomination of Jane Holl Lute, a retired Army major who worked on the NSC under President Bill Clinton, was announced Friday by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. ...At the U.N., Lute coordinates peace efforts among countries in conflict. ...In addition to her NSC work, Lute has served as vice...

Jeanne Lambrew lies about uninsured (deputy director of Obama Office of Health Reform) - 01/13/09

Jeanne Lambrew - University of Texas professor, former Bill Clinton aide, and a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress - has been named the deputy director of the Office of Health Reform for the upcoming Obama administration (link). Her biography is at [1]. She contributed a chapter [2] to the just-released book "Change for America: A Progressive Blueprint for the 44th President", which contains at least one lie: In 2007, about 47 million Americans lacked health insurance In actual fact, as Census figures show, millions of those are not Americans but are citizens of other...

Let's review "Change for America: A Progressive Blueprint for the 44th President" - 01/13/09

Mark Green [1] and the Center for American Progress Action Fund have teamed up to release the new book "Change for America: A Progressive Blueprint for the 44th President" See the rave reviews from such notables as Bill Clinton and Nancy Pelosi

"Soros Flunky Runs Obama's Pro-U.N. Policy" (Eric Schwartz) - 01/12/09

From this: In violation of Barack Obama's promise to run an open and transparent transition to the next administration, an associate of convicted document thief Sandy Berger has been secretly meeting with far-left groups under the auspices of the Obama-Biden Transition Project to develop a range of pro-U.N. policies. These include placing "more [U.N.] blue helmets on U.S. troops" and forcing the U.S. to join the U.N.'s International Criminal Court (ICC)... ...While Obama comes across in the media as a "moderate" or "centrist" in foreign policy, his Transition Project is developing an...

Obama "Energy Czar" Carol Browner's membership in Socialist panel scrubbed from website, Wikipedia - 01/10/09

Up until the past few days, the website of Socialist International - the main, worldwide socialist organization - listed Carol Browner - Barack Obama's choice to be Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change aka "Energy Czar" - as a member of their Commission for a Sustainable World Society (CSWS) group. Now, however, her membership in that group has been scrubbed from their website. Don't worry, though: I saved off a copy and screengrab here. The scrubbing continued at Wikipedia, where the news that she was a member of that panel was deleted by someone using an IP address...

Commission for a Sustainable World Society members as of January 5, 2009 - 01/10/09

The page listing the members of that Socialist International commission used to contain the name Carol Browner. Her name was removed some time between 1/5/09 and 1/10/09. Click the picture for a screengrab (304kb), and the full text of the page as cached by google is below.

How close was Leon Panetta to the Institute for Policy Studies? - 01/07/09

Leon Panetta - Barack Obama's choice to be director of the CIA - supposedly had/has links to or perhaps even membership in the radical Institute for Policy Studies, an alleged Communist front organization. However, a search fails to turn up much beyond noise. If anyone has credible information - such as with contemporaneous news reports or IPS literature - please leave a comment. More on IPS here and here (1977 Heritage Foundation report), supposed Clinton links here (also here) And, this page prefaces a list including Panetta with this: Congressional supporters of the IPS have included many...

Rahm Emanuel helped legalize criminal immigrants to get Bill Clinton voters - 12/16/08

From this: A former INS official who attended meetings with Rahm Emanuel when Emanuel was a White House aide says the hard-charging Democrat relaxed rules to naturalize even criminal immigrants and secure their votes for President Clinton ahead of the 1996 presidential election. ...Emanuel coordinated with Hispanic community organizers in Chicago to rubberstamp immigrants for citizenship, the INS official said in an exclusive interview with WND... The program in question was Citizenship USA, run out of Al Gore's office and involving former INS Commissioner Doris Meissner. One of the...

Schwarzenegger helps banks profit from illegal activity ("Bank on California") - 12/14/08

California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has launched a program called "Bank on California" that seeks to give bank accounts to 100,000 of the "unbanked": those who currently don't have either a checking or savings account. However - right on their front page ( - the program states that it accepts as ID the Mexican government's Matricula Consular card, a form of identification that's basically only of use to illegal aliens. In brief, Arnold Schwarzenegger and the state of California are actively helping banks profit from money that was earned illegally.

Supposed declaration on Bill Clinton paid off by Marc Rich (pardon, Eric Holder confirmation) - 11/23/08

I don't exactly believe this, but there's a picture here of a supposed declaration from an unnamed witness describing how commodities trader Marc Rich set up a $250 million fund to assure that he was pardoned by president Bill Clinton. For those whose memories of those hazy, crazy days of the (first) Clinton administration are hazy, there's a description of the case here.

Marc Cooper/Huffington Post pretends Obama/Ayers similar to McCain/David Ifshin - 10/05/08

Marc Cooper is an ultra-lightweight Huffington Post "reporter"; I used to leave comments at his site completely eviscerating what little immigration-related argument he could provide. After a while he had a mini-meltdown and stopped being able to present even a slightly cogent argument. He never once was able to respond to any of my points [1]. Now, the "reporter" offers "McCain's Own 60's Radical Pal" (link).

Jeff Bercovici, ThinkProgress spread anti-Rush Limbaugh smear (Antonio Villaraigosa) - 05/06/08

Yesterday on his show, Rush Limbaugh said this about an event where he ran into Bill Clinton and someone else: I shook his hand, he left, comes back, the mayor of Los Angeles, I thought it was a Secret Service agent, maybe a shoeshine guy. Turns out he gives me his card, I said, "Oh, my gosh, it's the mayor of Los Angeles." I stood up, I said, "Hello, Mr. Villaraigosa." The evil airheads at ThinkProgress claim this is an "Ethnically-Charged Insult" (, when in fact it appears to have another explanation. I don't know whether Rush has...

Barack Obama was at Million Man March (Louis Farrakhan) - 04/14/08

A 1995 profile of Barack Obama had this news which was apparently a minor stir a couple weeks ago: Obama took time off from attending campaign coffees to attend October's Million Man March in Washington, D.C. Needless to say, that event was organized by and featured a keynote speech from Reverend Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam (profiled here).

Bill Clinton, Arnold Schwarzenegger promote corruption, try to fool people about "unbanked" program - 01/24/08

Bill Clinton and Arnold Schwarzenegger join forces to offer "Beyond Payday Loans". The two promote plans to help the "unbanked" (those without checking accounts), and in so doing completely mislead about the seemy underbelly of their proposals: the San Francisco program they mention is designed in large part to give banking services to illegal aliens. They don't even hint at that: ...[The American dream] is harder to achieve for millions of Americans because they spend too much of their hard-earned money on fees to cash their paychecks or pay off high-priced loans meant to carry them over...

Arkansas Friendship Coalition: ACLU, Tyson Foods, ACORN join to support "immigration" - 11/01/07

The Arkansas Friendship Coalition ( is a new group formed by business and religious leaders, and their goal is to ensure that Arkansas doesn't establish Prop. 200/187-style laws as Oklahoma and Missouri have or are trying to do.

Vicente Fox: FTAA common currency (Amero), Hillary for president, Bill Richardson, driver's licenses, lies about heathcare... - 10/11/07

On Monday's Larry King show, former Mexican president Vicente Fox: * Said that the Free Trade Agreement of the Americans (FTAA; called in Spanish ACLA) on which he worked with president Bush was to, long-term, include a common "Latin American" currency. Since that agreement would apply to the U.S., the currency would apply here as well... * Promoted immigration from Mexico, "guest" workers, and NAFTA... * Lied about U.S. citizens not paying the healthcare costs for illegal aliens... * Agreed with Felipe Calderon's claim that "Mexico does not stop at its border"... * Promoted driver'...

Rod Blagojevich, Luis Gutierrez, and the alleged FALN terrorist - 09/08/07

From this: A high-ranking official in Gov. [Rod Blagojevich]'s office spent nearly two years in a federal prison for refusing to aid a government terrorism probe into a series of bombings in Chicago and New York City. Steven Guerra, Blagojevich's $120,000-a-year deputy chief of staff for community services, was identified by federal prosecutors as a member of the Puerto Rican separatist group, FALN, which was behind a wave of violence and killings in the 1970s and early 1980s... Gov. Blagojevich's office said Guerra disclosed his felony conviction to the administration before his 2003...

Hillary Clinton picks National Council of La Raza's Raul Yzaguirre to co-chair - 04/12/07

Hillary Clinton has selected Raul Yzaguirre - former president of the National Council of La Raza ("The Race") - as the co-chair of her presidential campaign. He'll head up her "outreach" to Hispanics. In actual fact, he'll help her even more strongly support illegal immigration, as Yzaguirre's history shows. NCLR is a considered-mainstream group that has links to and funds extremists. Last year, Karl Rove spoke at their convention. Yzaguirre says: "Hillary Clinton has spent more than three decades advocating on behalf of those who are invisible in America... Not only is she the most...

Terry McAuliffe makes pro-borders noises; Hillary Clinton pulls leash - 02/06/07

Former DNC chair Terry McAuliffe is now Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, and he supposedly said the following on NPR [1]: CALLER: I'm one of those Republicans who helped change the political arrangement by sitting on the sidelines, and if you want to get 10 percent of the Republicans, right now, to vote for Hillary Clinton -- and I would be one of them, and I've been a Republican for 40 years -- you do the following things. You eliminate your support for NAFTA, that was Bill Clinton.

Bill Clinton jokes about concerns over terrorism, illegal immigration - 11/08/06

Via this comes this MSNBC clip of a Bubba sighting: Andrea Mitchell: [Bill Clinton] headlined a party last night for Ben Cardin... and he ridiculed what Republicans have been saying about Democrats... Bill Clinton: have to vote for us because our opponents are no good... and because they'll tax you into the poor house...

DSCC: complaining about illegal immigration isn't racist - 08/15/06

A new web-only video ad from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) tries to "Impugn[ the] GOP Claim That We're Safer". It includes a shot of an illegal alien climbing over a wall with the caption "millions more illegal immigrants". While it's certainly good to see the Democrats slightly waking up to the fact that there are indeed untold millions of foreign citizens in this country, somehow I think their opposition to illegal immigration is a bit half-hearted. Especially considering all the

"Meet Robert Pastor" - 07/26/06

Jerome Corsi continues his series with "Meet Robert Pastor: Father of the North American Union": ...As we are taught in grade school, George Washington is the Father of our nation. If the North American Union comes into existence as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) asserts, then we all better get prepared for a new hero. Robert Pastor is the person most likely to be proclaimed the father of the North American Union, a designation consistent with his decades-long history of viewing U.S.

Clinton, Rove to speak before National Council of La Raza (The Race) - 07/01/06

The National Council of La Raza ("National Council of The Race"), a far-left, Ford Foundation-sponsored racial power group, will be holding its annual meeting at the Los Angeles Convention Center on July 8-11.

Dick Morris: "[Bill] Clinton is a paid agent of the crown prince of Dubai" - 03/04/06

From this: Former President Bill Clinton is up to his eyeballs in dealings with Dubai, his former top political adviser has revealed. According to Dick Morris, author of the best-selling book, "Condi vs, Hillary," Clinton is a paid agent of the crown prince of Dubai, now involved in a firestorm over its deal to take over some of the operations at six major U.S. ports.

Peter DeFazio (D-OR) makes some sense on guest worker schemes - 02/09/06

That U.S. Rep. voted for HR4437 and - surprisingly for a Democrat - he makes some sense in "Amnesty won't fix immigration woes": America has a proud heritage as a beacon for the dispossessed and oppressed, who come from around the world for a shot at achieving their dreams. However, a nation that does not control its own borders is not secure. We need to know who is coming into our country, and we must keep out people who are not authorized to enter.

Cindy Sheehan's arrest, sloganeering, the SOTU, and purple fingers - 02/01/06

Cindy Sheehan's much-prized First Amendment rights might not have been violated (nofollowpolicy) when she was arrested at last night's State of the Union. It's apparently a misdemeanor to engage in sloganeering and the like inside the Capitol building. In fact: The wife of Rep. C.W.

Governor Bill Clinton... of California? - 09/23/05

This rumor mill site says that sources say that someone else says that their sources heard from someone else that major donors (probably including George Soros) are encouraging "Bubba" Bill Clinton to run for governor of California. "On first blush, it might sound nuts" they quote a Democratic strategist. It sounds the same way on second, third, and subsequent blushes too. Other possibilities mentioned include: Magic Johnson, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, L.A.

Maybe Joe Trippi could have helped - 11/18/04

From March 30, 2002's "Saudis Pledge up to $20 Million for Clinton Library": Disgraced ex-president Bill Clinton, whose disdain for national security over the last eight years is widely believed to have rendered the U.S. vulnerable to last fall's terrorist attacks, is set to collect millions of dollars from Saudi Arabia, home to 15 of the 19 Sept.

Is there anything the miraculous John Kerry can't do? - 07/26/04

If I had gone to Boston to cover the DNC, right about this time I would be looking for the nearest exit. Sated with the stream of groups to which Kerry will grant benefits and the good that he will do, I would seek a breath of sanity. Exiting the hall, I would attempt to find, photograph, and interview protesters from across the spectrum as well as colorful locals. If I could find politicians or members of the press behaving badly, that would be a bonus. If I could entrap a member of the press into admitting liberal bias, that would be a big bouns.

Lonewacko wades into Socksgate - 07/20/04

This has already been linked by a few more popular blogs, but not by the Pope. Thus herewith: I have been cleared to reveal the following info. I'm not allowed to say where I got it. I have a reader who is involved with the government's efforts to fight terror, and he has connections who tell him the big suspicion is that Berger took things he thought would help Kerry in the Presidential campaign. Also, the grapevine says not all of the documents taken were copies.

Bubba tells them what they want to hear, Part #8,492,125 - 07/06/04

It's the small things that tell you so much, ain't it? A claim by former U.S. President Bill Clinton in his biography "My Life" that his wife Hillary was named after New Zealand's Edmund Hillary, regarded as the first man to climb Mt Everest, has been questioned... Clinton recalls visiting New Zealand in 1999 for an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum and wrote that his "biggest thrill" of the visit was meeting Edmund Hillary.
