Another Evening in Paradise

POSTED BY BH

Tuesday

Tonight, I was standing at a gas station pump filling my ancient car with gasoline. I started to feel worried. The gasoline was $5.49 a gallon and I can very well recall -- easily recall -- when it was 25 cents a gallon and when you could get a fine steak dinner at the best restaurant in my home town, Washington, D.C., for $5.49.
I was just getting over a bad flu that had left me exhausted. A close friend was marking the one year anniversary of his wife's death and he's miserable. Half the people I know cannot sleep at night worrying about money and their futures. What if this recession NEVER ends? The Great Depression only really ended with total mobilization to fight World War II. What if ours is like that? What if Iran gets the bomb? What if there is a total meltdown in the Eurozone?  What if this thing that's always itching on my back is cancer? And then a miracle happened. An incredibly pleasant breeze blew off the desert and washed me with the smell of desert wild flowers. Two college kids walked by and started to jump up and down and shout "Bueller, Bueller." One of them said, "Like man, you're the smartest guy there is." "I'm not that smart," I said. "I worry all the time." "Well, you're always really amusing on TV and it cheers up my whole family." Then a young girl in a blue dress came over and wanted a picture with my old car because they don't make this kind of car anymore and she smiled because she's a car buff. I thought, "What a dope I am for worrying and complaining. I have plenty to eat. I'm not getting shot at in Burma or Belgium in World War II. I'm not being deported to a death camp. I get to live in this great, great country and have my freedom, even if I don't have a lot of time left. I have the best wifey on the planet. My parents got married in the depths of the Depression and were pretty happy even though they couldn't afford to eat at fancy restaurants. I can learn from them." I cannot control the recession. But I can be grateful to Providence for letting me have the best life anyone can have -- a life of gratitude for being alive and fairly well in America in 2012. That would be truly smart. Really, really smart.

Obama Surreptitiously Uses Rangel For Attempts To Federalize Bill Of Rights ‘State Militias’ ~ Ethics Panel Finds Rangel Guilty on 11 Violations of House Rules 11/16/2010

POSTED BY BH

FROM POLITICAL VEL CRAFT SITE AND FREE ZONE NEWS

14 United State Governors : Prepare State Militia Defenses, To Be Ready Against Rogue Federal Forces!

When Barack Obama was campaigning for president in 2008, he visited Colorado Springs and said he wanted to create a “Civilian National Security Force” as big and well-funded as the $650 billion-plus U.S. military, a mysterious campaign promise ignored by virtually the entire media except WND. Now Charlie Rangel is proposing that he have it.


Rangel, facing ethics charges in Congress, has proposed the Universal National Service Act that would require “all persons” from ages 18-42 “to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the nationaldefense and homeland security.”
REP. CHARLIE RANGEL (D., N.Y.):  He is being “investigated by the House Ethics Committee in at least four areas, including his reported failure to properly report income taxes on a Caribbean villa in the Dominican Republic; use of four, rent-controlled apartments in Harlem; questions about an offshore firm asking Rangel for special tax exemptions; and whether Rangel improperly used House stationery to solicit donations for a school of public affairs named after him at City College of New York,” Fox News summarizes.


The plan also authorizes “the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, and for other purposes.”

Ethics Panel Finds Rangel Guilty on 11 Violations of House Rules 11/16/2010


“May Obama be d—–,” he wrote. “It reinstitutes the draft, and is for both males and females … There is no ‘opt-out’ – if you are not ‘fit’ for actual military service, or are a ‘conscientious objector,’ then you are shunted into ‘civilian service’ which is pretty much anything the ‘president’ says it is.”
WND reported when a copy of Obama’s Colorado Springs speech posted online apparently was edited to exclude Obama’s specific references to the new force.

As the presidential campaign advanced in 2008, another video appeared online that for many crystallized their concerns over such a “corps.” It shows a squad of young men marching and shouting praises to Obama.

Rush: Fleeing advertisers getting 'creamed' New campaign underway to defend businesses from leftist onslaught

Posted by BH


 FROM WND AND FREE ZONE MEDIA NEWS
 
PALM BEACH, Fla. – Radio giant Rush Limbaugh says advertisers who fled his show after he called a Georgetown graduate student a “slut” are getting “creamed” financially.
“The people who have been hurt on this program are the advertisers who left! They’ve been creamed,” Limbaugh said this afternoon.
“The advertisers who’ve really been hurt are the ones who’ve abandoned here. I just assume everybody understood that. Let me tell you: We have 22 million people here [in our listening audience] who have stopped patronizing these people … . It’s major in many instances, the harm that has been inflicted.”
Among the first major advertisers to drop Limbaugh’s show were ProFlowers, Quicken Loans, mattress retailers Sleep Train and Sleep Number, software maker Citrix Systems, data-backup provider Carbonite and online legal-document company LegalZoom.
He didn’t provide any specific details to quantify how much the fleeing advertisers had been injured, explaining he was “uncomfortable” with the notion of advertising being harmed.
“The whole point of it is to work!” Limbaugh exclaimed. “The whole point of it is to be helping – and it was helping. It always has been here. It’s the reason there is such a long list of people that want to be on the program. But the ones that left? This is a very sophisticated audience. They go out there and make it that they’re leaving because of some trumped up, phony issue and they hear about it in the form of cancellations. Which doesn’t really make me comfortable, but it’s a free market. So those people have been hurt. They hurt themselves. The advertisers that hung around have not been harmed. Their businesses are still thriving.”
Many of Limbaugh’s listeners have thought the broadcaster had taken a financial hit due to a boycott campaign promoted by leftists at Media Matters and elsewhere. They have been targeting his advertisers in the wake of national controversy for his calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” and “prostitute” as she pushed for insurance-covered birth control. He has since apologized for those remarks.
The head of Clear Channel, the national distributor of Limbaugh’s program, says the outrage over Limbaugh’s remarks was “part of the normal day-to-day of talk radio.”
“Rush is Rush and radio is radio,” CEO Bob Pittman told the Associated Press, referring to the host as “the king.”
“Rush is certainly the leader, and we’re delighted to have him.”
Pittman confirmed advertisers leaving the show did not have a large impact on the company, and there has not been a major move among stations to drop Rush. Limbaugh himself has noted other advertisers are lining up to replace deserters, and some of those who had left have sought to return.
Limbaugh maintains that those on the political left orchestrating the onslaught against him are feigning any previous financial support for the companies they’re trying to intimidate.

Western Survival Depends on Western Pride By David J. Rusin

"Contrary to what the left's relativist ideology says, for us, all civilizations are not of equal value," Guéant, a member of President Nicolas Sarkozy's Union for a Popular Movement, told a conference on February 4. "Those which defend humanity seem to us to be more advanced than those that do not," he averred. "Those which defend liberty, equality, and fraternity seem to us superior to those which accept tyranny, the subservience of women, social and ethnic hatred" — a truth that would be hammered home a month and a half later by a jihadist murdering Jewish children in Toulouse. Thus, Guéant underscored the need to "protect our civilization."

State confiscates newborn over vaccinations You won't believe what social worker did hours after baby's birth

Posted by BH

FROM WND AND FREE ZONE MEDIA
 

An organization that routinely deals with homeschooling issues across the U.S. and around the globe is taking on a case of parental rights because the circumstances – a social worker calling police over a newborn’s shots – is just too egregious to let pass.
The announcement was made by Michael P. Farris, the chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, today.
“We are taking this case because we are tired of seeing the erosion of parental rights in virtually every area of life. Parental rights in medical cases have an impact on broader parental rights, including educational decisions,” he said. “And the plain fact is this: If we don’t fight for parental rights, it is probable that our rights will be eroded bit by bit until there is nothing that remains.”
He said the organization was not using its normal membership revenue from homeschooling families to fund the new fight, and said supporters were being directed to a special freedom fund mechanism on the HSDLA website.
He said among the issues in the case: social service workers who called police when a new mother wanted tests before authorizing shots for her child, a hospital that ejected the new mom from its property over the issue, a social service “investigation” into the birth, and others.
The HSLDA’s Farris reported on the situation involving the couple named Scott and Jodi Ferris.
Jodi had gone into labor early and the midwife they had hoped would deliver their baby encouraged them to head to a hospital. They did.
“Their baby, whom I will call ‘Annie,’ was born in the ambulance in the parking lot of the Hershey Medical Center – a government hospital in Pennsylvania. Hospital personnel arrived very quickly and took charge of both baby and mom,” he reported.
But when Jodi asked nurses about her baby, “the hospital staff was utterly unresponsive. When they started to give Jodi an injection, she asked what it was and what is was for. They gave her vague answers like, ‘It’s just to help.’”
Farris said eventually a physician told Jodi her baby scored a 9 on a physical exam applied to newborns known as the APGAR test, where a score of 8 or higher is considered healthy.

Left Entering Panic Mode As Scalia Turns Against ObamaCare

POSTED BY BH

FROM FREE ZONE MEDIA ANDShare2

Antonin Scalia SC Left Entering Panic Mode As Scalia Turns Against ObamaCare
In Tuesday’s oral arguments before the Supreme Court, Solicitor General and chief ObamaCare advocate Donald Verrilli was presented with a substantial portion of his own posterior by Justice Antonin Scalia.
The summary execution began when Verrilli made the extraordinary mistake of schooling the Court on the proper meaning of its own decisions.
“No it didn’t,” said Scalia to the stunned Solicitor General in reference to his errant references to the significance of previous cases. And what followed was a merciless barrage of facts exposing the overreach of the individual mandate, ObamaCare’s method of creating “fairness in healthcare” by making those who do not want to purchase insurance buy it anyway or suffer a penalty.

When US District Judge Roger Vinson found ObamaCare
unconstitutional in 2011 he wrote simply: “If Congress can penalize a passive individual for failing to engage in commerce…it would be ‘difficult to perceive any limitation on federal power,’ and we would have a Constitution in name only.”
And Scalia not only repeated Vinson’s skepticism of Congress’ immediate use of the Commerce Clause power; he drove directly to the heart of Verrilli’s contention that the federal government has

14 United States Governors : Prepare State Militia Defenses, To Be Ready Against Obama’s Rogue Federal Forces!

Posted by Bh

FROM StumbleUpon.com AND FREE ZONE MEDIA
Obama fearing a revolution against him by the states, has moved swiftly by nationalizing nearly all National Guard Forces in multiple states; Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Virginia, Louisiana, South Carolina – to name a few. The Governors of the Great States of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia still have under their Command-and-Control the State Defense Forces to go against U.S. Federal forces should the need arise. Also important to note: There are NO U.S. laws prohibiting National Guard troops from also joining their State’s Defense Forces. This dilemma occurred during the Civil War with many “citizen soldiers” choosing to serve their states instead of the Federal Government.
Obama is angered by the several State Governors who have reestablished “State Defense Forces.” These forces are described as: “State Defense Forces (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, State Militias) in the United States are military units that operate under the sole authority of a state government; they are not regulated by the National Guard Bureau nor are they part of the Army National Guard of the United States. State Defense Forces are authorized by state and federal law and are under the command of the governor of each state. State Defense Forces are distinct from their state’s National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities.”
Mr. Obama is fearful of these State Defense Forces, in that he does not have control of said forces, and with the U.S. Military stretched to near breaking from multiple deployments and theatre actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, these State military forces would be under the direct command and authority of the Governors in which states have said forces. In essence, the Governors would have “de facto control” of the United States.

The two Governors leading this move are: Tim Pawlenty, Governor of Minnesota; and Rick Perry, Governor of Texas. Both of these State Governors stated they have: “…deep fear the President is destroying their Nation.” Governor Pawlenty’s fear of Obama is that since Obama took office he has appeased America’s enemies and has shunned some of America’s strongest allies, especially Israel. Governor Perry has declared that Obama is punishing his State of Texas by dumping tens-of-thousands of illegal Mexican immigrants into the cities and small towns of Texas. Governor Perry further recently stated: “If Barack Obama’s Washington doesn’t stop being so oppressive, Texans might feel compelled to renounce their American citizenry and secede from the union.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece is criticizing All the Politicizing of Trayvon Martin.. Not my Uncle's Way

Posted by BH

FROM THE DAILY CALLER AND FREE ZONE MEDIA

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece is criticizing the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson for politicizing the Trayvon Martin shooting and leveraging racial tensions to rile up Americans.
Conservative activist Dr. Alveda King, now the director of African-American outreach at Priests for Life and the founder of King For America, said she hopes Sharpton and Jackson stop “stirring up the people without positive solutions” in Sanford, Fla., and elsewhere in the U.S.
“I would believe that, by stirring up all of the emotions and reactions, I wanted to encourage them to remember the man that they say that they followed, to remember that his message was nonviolence and very loving,” King told The Daily Caller, referencing her late uncle. She added that she wanted to encourage Jackson and Sharpton “to talk about nonviolence and not to incite people with that race card that they are very good at playing.”
“Nonviolence was a very important part of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr,” she added. “So, we want to encourage people to be nonviolent in their responses, to be thorough in their research and that justice must be done…We want justice to come, but we want nonviolent responses to this really tragic and terrible incident.”
King hasn’t made up her mind about the facts of this case and who is responsible for what, but believes there should be a full investigation. She told TheDC that she agrees with former Republican presidential candidate and businessman Herman Cain, however, who has asked for a full investigation instead of “swirling rhetoric.”

From Stratfor and Free Zone Media
By Robert D. Kaplan
While the foreign policy elite in Washington focuses on the 8,000 deaths in a conflict in Syria -- half a world away from the United States -- more than 47,000 people have died in drug-related violence since 2006 in Mexico. A deeply troubled state as well as a demographic and economic giant on the United States' southern border, Mexico will affect America's destiny in coming decades more than any state or combination of states in the Middle East. Indeed, Mexico may constitute the world's seventh-largest economy in the near future.
Certainly, while the Mexican violence is largely criminal, Syria is a more clear-cut moral issue, enhanced by its own strategic consequences. A calcified authoritarian regime in Damascus is stamping out dissent with guns and artillery barrages. Moreover, regime change in Syria, which the rebels demand, could deliver a pivotal blow to Iranian influence in the Middle East, an event that would be the best news to U.S. interests in the region in years or even decades.
Nevertheless, the Syrian rebels are divided and hold no territory, and the toppling of pro-Iranian dictator Bashar al Assad might

Hezbollah: Threat to Israel,

Dear Bill,

The report below reiterates what Brigitte Gabriel, President of ACT! for America, has been saying for years—that Hezbollah operatives and terrorists are active in America.


Brigitte Gabriel

This Friday, a “Global march to Jerusalem” will take place, which will include the usual gaggle of jihadists, anti-Semites, anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian activists, and terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah. According to its organizers, the march is “comprised of a diverse coalition…who are united in the struggle to liberate the holy city of Jerusalem (the city of peace) from illegal Zionist occupation.”

Global march organizers further claim that their “aim is to end the Zionist policies of apartheid, ethnic cleansing and Judaization, which all harm the people, land and sanctity of Jerusalem.” (No mention of the fact that over one million Arabs are citizens of Israel, who enjoy equal rights with Jewish citizens of Israel.)

Shocking discovery with 'cannibal' doctor Nightmare of 'house of horrors' returns with stunning find

Posted by Bh

FROM WND AND FREE ZONE MEDIA

The horrific nightmare of a Kansas abortionist who is said to have eaten unborn children for lunch and kept fetuses in Styrofoam cups in his refrigerator is back, as 1,000 private medical records of his patients were discovered Saturday in an elementary-school dumpster.
Back in 2005, WND led news coverage of Krishna Rajanna, an abortion provider in Kansas City, who stunned law-enforcement agents investigating grisly accusations against him – including one employee’s contention the abortionist once microwaved a fetus and stirred it into his lunch.
“I thought I had heard and seen every vile, disgusting crime scene, but was in for a new shock when I started this investigation,” Detective William Howard of the Kansas City Police Department said at the time.
Now, the gruesome details of Rajanna’s case are making headlines once again after a woman in Overland Park, Kan., found in a recycling bin at Brookridge Elementary School stacks of private records of patients from the now-closed Affordable Medical and Surgical Services.
According to the Kansas City Star, the outraged woman who found the documents called Overland Park police. Officers failed to respond, so she then phoned her daughter, a 45-year-old nurse with more than 20 years’ experience, who called the newspaper.
“My head just about spun off my shoulders,” said the nurse, who preferred to remain anonymous. “No one should have these records.”
The records, mostly from 2001 and 2002, displayed women’s names, as well as birth dates, phone numbers, Social Security numbers and emergency family contacts. Also included were the patients’ health history, number of children, term of pregnancy and previous abortions, if any, along with fees paid for the procedures. Labels scrawled on some documents identified patients as “minor,” meaning the girls were under age. Some said patients had “changed mind” or were “too far” along in their pregnancies, the Star reported. 
Krishna Rajanna
“I was under the impression that these would not be seen by anyone,” Rajanna, whose license was revoked in 2005, told the paper.
“I thought that these would be recycled away just like any other papers,” he added. “If you have them collected, I’ll just take them back and burn them or discard them in a different way. I could just incinerate them just as well, I suppose. But usually that means we are creating more smoke.”

‘I Don’t Obey the White Man’s Law:’ New Black Panther Party Member Clashes With Anderson Cooper

Posted by BH
FROM THE BLAZE GBTV AND FREE ZONE MEDIA
Anderson Cooper and New Black Panther Party Member Clash on Trayvon Martin Case
During an odd and fiery interview on CNN Monday night,  Anderson Cooper tussled with Mikhail Muhammad of The New Black Panther Party over the group’s reaction to the death of Florida Teen Trayvon Martin. The New Black Panther Party has offered a reward for the capture of Martin’s shooter George Zimmerman, and cited “street people law” during the interview Monday night as justification for charging murder against George Zimmerman while calling for a citizen’s arrest.
“He committed murder, he committed a hate crime,” Muhammad told Cooper of Zimmerman, explaining, “we decided to take it upon ourselves and coalition with other groups, with other black people who have had enough.”
Anderson continued to remind Muhammad that Martin’s father has explicitly rejected the “eye for an eye” rhetoric that some members of The New Black Panther Party have used, but the spokesman appeared to ignore the father’s request.
“We are military, we are here to support Trayvon’s family,” Muhammad argued, adding that the government wasn’t really there for Trayvon Martin and that “they have killed millions of black men and women.”
“You tell our justice department and Eric Holder and our President Obama to get off up their ass and do the work and the rest is done!” Muhammad went on to say. When pressed by Cooper on the legality, he responded that he could make a citizen’s arrest of Zimmerman, who has not yet been charged for anything, because the New Black Panther Party member doesn’t “obey the white man’s law,” but rather the “street people’s law.”
He then went on to accuse Cooper of having a lack of concern for Martin’s family, which prompted a quick retort from Cooper: “Well sir, actually, you have no idea what’s in my mind, or my heart, or what I’ve been reporting on….. What I‘m wandering is aren’t you just taking advantage of a situation to try and get in front of cameras and get your name out, for your group, which is tiny?”

5 Cool Inventions to be Excited About in 2012

Posted by Bh

FROM FREE ZONE MEDIA AND WFZR TV

If you’re like us, and we know we are, you’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of another arbitrarily ranked list of similar-but-different things.
For today’s installment, we thought we’d steer away from the more financially focused “top whatevers” and stray into Liz Klimas’s territory. That is, we’re going to bring you a tech list.
So without wasting any more time on introductory remarks, here are the “top 5” coolest tech items and services (that we know of) for 2012, as presented by CNN Money [all block quotes from the same]:

5. “White Spaces” Wi-Fi

5 Cool Inventions to be Excited About in 2012
Hidden between individual television channels is a small but valuable collection of airwaves that will allow for a kind of “super Wi-Fi” network.
The Federal Communications Commission recently opened up the spectrum that sits between television channels numbered 1 through 51. Wireless communications in those “white spaces” have been permitted since Jan. 26 in Wilmington, N.C., the FCC’s designated testbed location. After the bugs are worked out, the spaces will be opened up nationally in the coming months.
The FCC designated the white spaces as “unlicensed” band, meaning anyone can broadcast in it for free. It‘s a primo band that sits lower than today’s Wi-Fi, allowing signals to travel over significantly longer distances and through buildings and walls.
It’ll take time for all the necessary infrastructure — including new chipsets for smartphones and other devices — to roll out, but FCC expects the expansion to lead to innovative new kinds of wireless networks, including connected highways, schools, parks and towns. Wireless carriers scrounging for more spectrum could also begin to broadcast Wi-Fi to customer-dense areas to reduce stress on their 3G and 4G networks.

4. Microsoft Windows 8

5 Cool Inventions to be Excited About in 2012

Windows 8 has a completely new visual interface that‘s unlike anything you’ve seen on a PC before. It’s optimized for touch screens on mobile devices like tablets, but it will also work for those with a traditional mouse and keyboard setup.
The result is a computer that operates as a hybrid, with all the functions of a standard PC operating system but the user experience of a tablet. [...]

3. Lytro’s Light-Field Camera

5 Cool Inventions to be Excited About in 2012

Ever snapped a picture in a hurry, looked back and realized you forgot to focus? The much-hyped Lytro has the solution, with a light-field camera that lets you adjust a picture after it’s been snapped.
“What‘s often been said about us is that we’re camera 3.0,” says Kira Wampler, Lytro’s vice president of marketing. “You can do things that you’ve never been able to do before.”
Lytro CEO Ren Ng worked for six years to commercialize the technology, which he pioneered as part of his Ph.D. research at Stanford University. [...] It comes in two models: a $399 8 GB camera in Graphite or Electric Blue that takes 350 pictures, or a 16 GB “Red Hot” model for $499 that holds 750 pictures.

2. Anything released by Apple (hear us out)

5 Cool Inventions to be Excited About in 2012

Let’s face it, the most talked-about tech product (or products) this year will probably come from Apple.
The company is widely rumored to be prepping a television for release in 2012 that will run its Apple TV software. Though Apple TV set-top box sales haven’t been impressive, the late Steve Jobs told biographer Walter Isaacson that he had “finally cracked” the code for success. Jobs said that the device Apple is creating will have a simple user interface and will sync easily with other devices in the home.

Some Apple believe Apple had a more significantly overhauled iPhone in the works that just wasn’t quite ready to launch last fall. It could make an appearance this year.

5 Cool Inventions to be Excited About in 2012

Augmented reality may end up being one of the hottest fashion accessories of 2012. Google is secretly working on Android-powered virtual reality glasses that it plans to begin selling by the end of the year, according to reports in the New York Times and the blog 9 to 5 Google.
Details are scant about the rumored glasses, but the basic idea is to beam contextually relevant information straight to your eyeballs. Like augmented reality apps, the glasses could deliver an added layer of information about, say, a landmark you’re looking at, or offer up a discount to a restaurant that catches your gaze.
“If facial recognition software becomes accurate enough, the glasses could remind a wearer of when and how he met the vaguely familiar person standing in front of him at a party,” the New York Times’ Nick Bilton theorizes. “They might also be used for virtual reality games that use the real world as the playground.”
A Google representative declined to comment.

Selling Out to Russia: Beck Breaks Down Obama-Putin Relationship

Posted by Bh

FROM FREE ZONE MEDIA AND THE BLAZE

Glenn Beck Says Barack Obama Is Selling Out U.S. to Vladimir Putins RussiaAt worst, Russia has historically been America’s arch nemesis, at best, it has been the country’s ongoing strategic and ideological opponent. Yet, despite millennia of cultural contributions and “fundamentally transforming” since the fall of Communism, many wonder just how “free” a nation Russia really is.
Take into account the staggering number of members of the press who have been killed under the stewardship of past and incoming President Vladimir Putin. To date, the toll falls at over 40. In the words of Observer journalist Peter Preston: ”He [Putin] is elected time and again. Yet a free press seems to mean pitifully little to him. You investigate? You report? You die, unavenged.”

Realigning the axis of power?
On Tuesday evening, Glenn Beck reminded viewers of Russia’s “totally and completely corrupt” government and wondered why it appears U.S. President Barack Obama appears to be courting the nation’s unspoken foe.
On Monday, ABC’s Jake Tapper caught Obama on a hot mic telling outgoing Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that, if “given space,“ he will ”have more flexibility” regarding Russia’s missile defense program “after my election.”
Of course, the White House spun the remark as merely an innocent reference to incoming and outgoing administrations around election years, and that the missile shield the president was referring to was merely a nod to give the “technical experts” a chance to “work on” the matter. The administration tried to backpedal further by stating, “it was clearly not a year in which we are going to achieve a breakthrough.”
For reference, below are Obama and Medvedev’s remarks in full. Audio follows:
President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.
President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…
President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.
President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

To recap, Beck pressed, Medvedev said he’ll “transmit” the information to the “former KGB spymaster” Putin.
He corrected, however, that while Obama promised a foreign leader assistance in return for time, as president, he in fact does not have the power to effect how the U.S. role in Russia’s missile defense — that is reserved for Congress.
“He is selling us into slavery,” Beck slammed.

The Washington Times has more:
“May God bless Trayvon Martin’s soul, his family and — [inaudible]” Rush said as he was removed from the House floor this morning for wearing a hoodie.
Rush was wearing a grey hoodie under his suit jacket. He took off his jacket, pulled the hood over his head and put on sunglasses while saying “racial profiling has to stop, Mr. Speaker. Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum,” he said.
“The member will suspend,” Rep. Gregg Harper, R-Miss., the man serving as speaker pro tempore at the time, said. “The member is no longer recognized. The chair will ask the sergeant-at-arms to enforce the rules on decorum.”
Rush violated the rule against wearing hats in the House chamber.
