U.K. Professor: Doctors Using ‘Death Pathway’ to Euthanize Patients

U.K. Professor Claims Doctors Are Initiating the Liverpool Care Pathway too Early and Euthanizing Patients
Professor Patrick Pullicino (Photo: University of Kent)
Patrick Pullicino, a professor of clinical neurosciences at the United Kingdom’s University of Kent, has some disturbing news for terminally ill patients within the U.K.’s healthcare system: it is that up to 130,000 patients may have been killed before their time.
The Daily Mail reports Pullicino saying the Liverpool Care Pathway, a protocol doctors can use when patients are not expected to recover which he likens to a “death pathway,” was used on 29 percent of the 450,000 people who die in National Health Services hospitals each year.
According to the Marie Curie Palliative Care Institute, LCP is “used at the bedside to drive up sustained quality of the dying in the last hours and days of life.” A patient’s/family member’s guide to LCP states that this pathway could involve the following: stopping any medication that is no longer helpful or prescribing new medication; stopping unnecessary testing; and, depending on the situation, stopping administration of food and water.
According to a healthcare provider’s guide, LCP has been recommended in several prominent papers and by organizations throughout the 2000s. Before enacting LCP, a “multidisciplinary team” evaluates the patient’s situation and all the possible options. If the patient is “diagnosed as dying” then LCP can be enacted after communication the diagnosis to all those involved.
Pullicino though has said that too often patients could live longer before they are put on LCP, citing the claims that they were within their last hours and days as “palpably false.”
Here’s an example Pullicino provided to the Daily Mail:
In the example he revealed a 71-year-old who was admitted to hospital suffering from pneumonia and epilepsy was put on the LCP by a covering doctor on a weekend shift.
Professor Pullicino said he had returned to work after a weekend to find the patient unresponsive and his family upset because they had not agreed to place him on the LCP.
“I removed the patient from the LCP despite significant resistance,” he said.
“His seizures came under control and four weeks later he was discharged home to his family,” he said.
The patient’s extra 14 months of life came at considerable cost to the NHS and the taxpayer, Professor Pullicino indicated.
He said he needed extensive support with wheelchair, ramps and nursing.
After 14 months the patient was admitted to a different hospital with pneumonia and put on the LCP. The man died five hours later.
To Pullicino, the lack of evidence used in some cases for initiating LCP makes it an “assisted death pathway rather than a care pathway.” Pullicino said that predicting someone’s last days is scientifically impossible.
The Daily Mail reports that Pullicino is not alone in his concern for LCP. Three years ago, it states, other prominent professors and healthcare professionals said LCP was a “backdoor” for euthanasia.
The Daily Mail does note a spokesperson within the Department of Health saying they don’t recognize any of the figures cited by Pullicino.
Life News and National Right to Life News, among other pro-life sites, have reported on the “shocking” claims made by Pullicino. Life News reports American bioethicist Wesley Smith saying this only serves to who that the U.K.’s National Health Service is collapsing and is “only going to get worse.”

Ron Paul‘s Lesson on the Benefits of Freedom Stuns ’Morning Joe’ Panel

Ron Paul‘s Lesson on the Benefits of Freedom Stuns ’Morning Joe’ Panel

During an early morning interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Ron Paul tried to educate the Mika Brzezinski-led panel on American freedom vs dependence on government. “Morning Joe” regular panel member Mike Barnicle chimed in, asking Mr. Paul a curious question:
“Do you feel, in speaking to this next generation that you just spoke of, any obligation to talk to them, perhaps instruct them about the fact that there has been a social contract among Americans from one generation to another to help those that need help the most?”
The Congressman and perennial Presidential candidate delivered a clear and concise reply that started with his shooting down Barnicle’s alleged “fact” about a social contract. (There is no such thing in our Constitution.)
And then, the interview took on a more confrontational tone as another MSNBC regular, Sam Stein of the Huffington Post asked Ron Paul if and why he takes Social Security checks. Mr. Paul answered by educating Stein that there is a difference between something like Food Stamps and Social Security.
Watch the exchange, including Brzezinski’s abrupt ending of the segment:


Daris Long and Melvin Bledsoe on Huckabee TWO FATHERS ON MIKE'S SHOW (MUST SEE)

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – With great fanfare, President Obama signed Executive Order 13519 on Nov. 17, 2009, establishing a Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force to be led by Attorney General Eric Holder with the aim of prosecuting fraud and recovering assets in the economic debacle that began one year earlier.
In 2010, the Mortgage Fraud Working Group organized under the executive order issued its first annual report, boasting that the number of mortgage fraud defendants charged by the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices more than doubled from 526 in fiscal year 2009 to 1,235 in fiscal year 2010. A similar increase was reported in the number of mortgage fraud cases charged, going from 267 in 2009 to 656 in 2010.

However, WND research has demonstrated that the mortgage fraud cases pursued by Holder’s Department of Justice have typically targeted homeowners charged with making fraudulent loan applications. Largely ignored are the financial institutions that made the loans and prominent Democrat donors and colleagues of Obama administration officials.
High friends in high places
As WND has previously reported, Holder has overlooked possibly fraudulent “loan to own” equity recapitalization loans Credit Suisse made to some 15 or more luxury resorts or to various principles involved in the transactions, including supermarket billionaire Ron Burkle, a long-time Democratic Party operative with a history of providing financial support to top Democrats, including Bill and Hillary Clinton.
WND has also reported that Credit Suisse is a client of the Washington-based law firm that Holder left as a partner to become attorney general and Lanny Breuer left as a partner to head of the Justice Department criminal division under Holder.
The firm, Covington & Burling, represents “a Who’s Who of big banks and other companies at the center of alleged foreclosure fraud,” Reuters reported Jan. 20.
In addition to Credit Suisse, they include Bank of America, Citibank, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo & Co. and at least one other bank among the top 10 largest mortgage servicers.
Holder prosecutes mom and pop
On Feb 19, 2011, New York Times Op-Ed writer Joe Nocera lamented that Holder and the Justice Department had decided not to prosecute Angelo R. Mozilo, the high-flying former CEO of Countrywide Financial, one of the mortgage lending firms most responsible for the continuing mortgage crisis.
“Hundreds of billions of dollars have been lost by investors while millions of borrowers have lost their homes,” Nocera wrote, recalling that Mozilo sold $140 million in Countrywide stock while his company was failing. “Few of the people who ran the institutions that contributed to the disaster have been found liable.”
On March 25, 2011, Nocera contrasted the kind treatment Mozilo received at the hands of Holder’s DOJ with the experience of 48 year-old Charlie Engle. Engle caught the attention of Robert W. Nordlander, an IRS special agent, after movie actor Matt Damon financed a documentary film titled “Running the Sahara,” featuring Engle’s ultra-marathon challenge.
Convinced Engle was understating his taxes, Nordlander resorted to a dumpster dive for records Engle may have thrown away, unwilling to believe that all Engle earned from the documentary was $30,000.
Still unsatisfied, Nordlander hired an attractive female undercover agent to meet Engle and see if she could entice him into making admissions.
Engle’s crime, for which Holder’s U.S. Attorneys sent him to prison as a felon, was that he took out a “liar loan,” overstating his income.
“Charlie has always insisted that he never filled out the loan document – his mortgage broker did it, and he was actually a victim of mortgage fraud,” Nocera wrote in yet another editorial on Richard Engle, published June 1, in which he noted the broker later pleaded guilty to another mortgage fraud.
“Indeed, according to a recent court filing by Charlie’s lawyer, the government failed to turn over exculpatory evidence that could have helped Charlie prove his innocence.”
Nocera’s conclusion: “For whatever inexplicable reason, prosecutors really wanted to nail Charlie Engle. And they did.”
Another “small fry” touted by the DOJ in November 2009 as part of a Holder surge in mortgage fraud prosecutions was Lakeisha Gates.
In 2007, Gates worked as a clerk at a small brokerage firm in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Allegedly at the behest of the owners of the firm, Gretchen and Eric Scott, Gates acted as the nominee purchaser at grossly inflated values for two properties the Scotts owned. She misrepresented on the loan application that she made $5,000 per month as the vice president of a catering company.
Gates obtained a mortgage for $300,000, which soon defaulted. For her participation in the deal, Gates earned $10,000.
She pleaded guilty to federal mortgage fraud charges and agreed to testify against the Scotts, who she said put her up to it. The Scotts were charged with a conspiracy to commit bank and wire fraud.
When the Mortgage Fraud Working Group boasts of prosecuting mortgage fraud, the cases typically involve individual borrowers who had lied or otherwise committed fraud by obtaining mortgages on one or more properties.
Those the Obama administration allows to walk free are the likes of Angelo Mozilo, who built an empire making highly inflated mortgages based on questionable appraisals to lenders who were never properly credit-qualified. Mozilo amassed a fortune that enabled him to pay a $67.5 million fine to settle Securities and Exchange Commission fraud charges without appreciably denting his massive net worth.
WND has previously reported how Countrywide Financial Group gave preferential “friends of Angelo Mozilo” loans to Democrats Franklin Raines and James Johnson, who each made millions personally while holding executive positions in Fannie Mae amid the irresponsible mortgage activities each directed to the ultimate detriment of the taxpayer.
Nocera’s conclusion was that the Justice Department has taken after “the smallest of small fry – and then trumpeted these prosecutions of how tough it is on mortgage fraud.”
He wrote: “It is a shameful way for the government to act.”
‘The fix is in’
WND has previously reported that Edra Blixseth, the former spouse of Tim Blixseth, the founder of Yellowstone Club, has teamed with Ron Burkle, the supermarket billionaire who was a major donor to Hillary Clinton in her 2008 presidential campaign.
Mike Flynn, attorney for Tim Blixseth, has explained to WND his reasons for believing Burkle used his political connections with Holder and Breuer to quash criminal investigations regarding Edra Blixseth.
“The Holder/Breuer-controlled Justice Department quashed the entire investigation; they declared the Yellowstone Club ‘off limits,’ and even the ‘connected’ bankruptcy judge Ralph Kirscher, who declared Edra exonerated and discharged from all liability,” Flynn told WND.
“The Holder DOJ and Judge Kirscher made the decisions to sweep away the pending Montana Yellowstone Club investigation and proposed indictment of Edra Blixseth in the face of the documented, irrefutable evidence,” he said.
Flynn provided WND evidence of a series of questionable loans and various financing attempts to gain ownership of the Yellowstone Club at prices deeply under market undertaken by Edra Blixseth, beginning in June 2007. The transactions resulted in millions of dollars of defaulted loans. Meanwhile, Blixseth, Burkle, various hedge fund investors and Credit Suisse ended up owning the Yellowstone Club for under $10 million.
“Some of the loan documents, Edra Blixseth used to commit this massive fraud or so grossly false on their face for tens of millions of dollars, that it makes the Edra Blixseth case appear to be a cover-up resulting from rank cronyism or worse,” Flynn said.
Flynn told WND his office provided the Obama-appointed Montana U.S. Attorney with documentary evidence proving that while Edra Blixseth was signing perjured loan documents with banks, she was contemporaneously signing sealed affidavits in her divorce reciting the opposite of what she was stating to the banks – in both instances to obtain millions of dollars in her divorce and tens of millions from the banks.
“Tens of millions of dollars of the Edra Blixseth loans have never been paid to creditors or accounted for,” Flynn said.
“Burke and Sam Byrne of the Boston-based hedge fund CrossHarbor Capital Parthers have ended up with $800 million in Blixseth assets, while the Democratic bankruptcy judge has swept all the documentary evidence under the rug. Judge Kirscher has discharged Edra Blixseth, and the Holder/Breuer DOJ has quashed all criminal investigation as ‘off limits.’”

Obama’s Blatant Disregard for the Constitution is Appalling

In order to become President, Barack Obama had to swear to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. But three years later, I am disgusted with the disregard that the President continues to show to our Constitution. Has he forgotten about the separation of executive, judicial and legislative branches found in our founding document? Our founders gave us a system of checks and balances so that one person could never seize more power than was provided in the Constitution.
President Obama’s actions demonstrate that he thinks he’s above the law. When he doesn’t get his way, he creates new policies to his liking.
Under Obamacare, an even playing field doesn’t exist for businesses. And President Obama must have recognized that, because he ordered his Health and Human Services Secretary to provide waivers from the healthcare overhaul. Unions, universities and restaurants in Nancy Pelosi’s district received waivers so that they didn’t have to comply with the law.
Then we have the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Passed in 1996, DOMA is a federal law that defines marriage as being between one man and one woman. But earlier this spring, the administration said it will no longer defend the constitutionally of DOMA. So even though this law is on the books – passed by Congress and signed into law by President Clinton – President Obama just thinks we should ignore it.

Last week Obama threw the Constitution out the window again. Even through Congress disagreed, the President was happy to circumvent the Constitution in order to protect younger illegal immigrants from deportation and hand them work permits. He stands resolute in this position despite the fact that, a year prior, the President said this about immigration: “Some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own.” He continued, “That’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”
Today, President Obama invoked executive privilege so Attorney General Eric Holder wouldn’t have to turn over documents on Fast and Furious. That is not what executive privilege was intended for!
Where will the madness end? When will the President stop blatantly disregarding the Constitution?
Sadly, I don’t think this President cares that he is ignoring the laws of our land. Nor, does he plan to curb his agenda. In fact, I expect things to only grow worse under this President. Thanks to an open mic in March, President Obama was caught telling Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he will have “more flexibility” in his second term.
The future of our country depends on making sure that the executive head of our nation knows he is subject to our laws and that he is under the Constitution.
Mr. President, I urge you, stop your autocratic reign; drop everything you are doing and read the Constitution. You will be well-served to remember the document that you swore to preserve, protect and defend.

Airport Travel: Securtity Cameras, Fingerprints, Iris IDs

Written by Gary North on June 21, 2012

Print Friendly
A new era of surveillance is about to begin. It will begin at the nation’s airports.
The International Air Transport Association is determined to speed up the lines to get checked. So, there will be a new system of surveillance. It is being beta-rested at Love Field in Texas.
That was the airport where President Kennedy landed in his final trip.
Cameras will begin scanning us in the parking garage.
We will check our luggage (fee). Then we will have our fingerprints scanned.
This means that our fingerprints must be in at least one data base, so they can be verified.
This will apply all over the world.
If we have carry-on luggage, we will go through an electronic tunnel. There, we will be scanned.
Supposedly, these X-ray machines will identify non-metallic objects.
This will make everything speedy. This will not be extra layers of screening. It will replace all other screening. They promise.
The machines to do this already exist. Well, not all of them. Some are in development.
We must wait a decade, they tell us.
To speed things up, all we need to do is surrender our privacy forever. We will get our fingerprints on file. Then we will get our irises on file.
Then everything will speed up.
No more guards asking, “Your papers, please.”
The key to speeding up checkpoints and making security less intrusive will be to identify and assess travelers according to the risks they pose to safety in the skies. The so-called riskiest or unknown passengers would face the toughest scrutiny, including questioning and more sensitive electronic screening. Those who voluntarily provide more information about themselves to the government would be rewarded with faster passage.
What’s that? You prefer not to provide such information voluntarily? Then it’s back to “Your papers, please.”Americans are already opting in. The TSA has a pre-check program. A million flyers have registered.
The airlines say they could eliminate paper from ticketing if passengers provided information as they do for PreCheck, by linking an electronic ticket to a person’s fingerprint or iris scan.
Iris scans, which measure the colored part of the eye, are gaining visibility worldwide. Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam began the Privium program in October 2001. It offers fliers with European passports a border passage of 10 to 15 seconds with iris scans.
In the USA, about 200,000 fliers have enrolled in the CLEAR program for expedited screening in Denver, Orlando and San Francisco since November 2010. Members, who answer TSA questions and provide either a fingerprint or iris scan, pay $179 a year to breeze past ID kiosks with a special card.
Here is the goal.
“To do it right, what you’d want to do is bring somebody in, get all their biographic information, get their biometric information, and run them through a couple of databases to make sure they’re not a bad guy,” says James Albers, senior vice president at MorphoTrust USA, which developed software for iris scans. “Do they travel enough to make that worthwhile or cost-effective?”
Once this is operational at airports, look for this in subways, at train stations, at bus depots.
To see what is coming, read the details about what is already here: at Love Field.

In a move described by Sheriff Joe Arpaio as political payback, the Maricopa County, Ariz., Board of Supervisors today rejected a $5,000 reimbursement from the sheriff’s volunteer Cold Case Posse for expenses incurred on a trip to Hawaii to investigate Barack Obama’s presidential eligibility.
“It’s sad that they use these politics to reject money,” Arpaio told WND. “I made the promise when I launched the investigation to do everything I can to not use taxpayer money.”

He confirmed his Cold Case Posse team would not be deterred by any disagreement over a donation, however.
“If they want to know what’s going on, there’s a press conference in three or four weeks,” he said.
“This is a criminal investigation,” Arpaio asserted. “You cannot have the board of supervisors interfere with the elected sheriff’s duties and responsibilities that he gets from the Constitution.”
The expenses incurred by the county were for a deputy who accompanied Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo for security purposes.
The reimbursement was rejected on a 2-2 vote, with the absence of Supervisor Fulton Brock.
The supervisors who voted to reject the funds were Mary Rose Wilcox and Don Stapley, who both were subjects of sheriff’s investigations in the past and filed claims alleging wrongful prosecution, explained Arpaio spokeswoman Lisa Allen.
She said Wilcox and Stapley are hurting taxpayers and obstructing the sheriff’s efforts to keep his promise to taxpayers that funding for the Obama investigation be kept to a minimum. The supervisors who voted to accept the funds were Andy Kunasek and Max Wilson.
Join with Sheriff Arpaio is his work to uncover the truth by donating to the Cold Case Posse expenses, or contribute to a fund that supports investigations by both WND and the sheriff.
The posse announced in March it found probable cause that the image released in 2011 by the White House as birth documentation for Obama is a forgery.
Another news conference is scheduled in a few weeks, and the sheriff says there will be major additional revelations.
Arpaio’s investigation was launched at the request of constituents who feared that placement of Obama’s name on the state’s 2012 would constitute fraud if Obama were found to be ineligible.
Allen told WND that the supervisors who rejected the funds appeared to be following the lead of Randy Parraz, an anti-Arpaio activist who has lobbied the supervisors to oppose the sheriff.
About 30 members of Parraz’s group, Citizens for a Better Arizona, attended the meeting today to protest. The Arizona Republic newspaper reported the group asked the board not to accept private donations to “back fill” the sheriff’s use of public funds.
The protesters contended the investigation was “well outside the jurisdiction of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and the duties and responsibilities of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.
At the board meeting, Kunasek argued the supervisors and sheriff are elected separately, and supervisors should not determine which criminal investigations the sheriff pursues. Parraz responded at that point and yelled at Kunasek, accusing him of wasting taxpayer money.
Posse lead investigator Zullo told WND the Hawaii trip was all business.
“From my [motel] balcony I had a view of an alley, a check cashing place and a liquor store,” he said, noting the room cost only $129 per night, a low rate for most locations in Hawaii.
He said the investigation is important because it focuses a document that appears to be fraudulent, and people are wrongly injecting politics. He has told his team that it doesn’t matter whose name is on the document.
“We are trying to conduct an investigation with zero cost to the taxpayers,” he said. “They refused to take the money. We don’t understand how that helps the taxpayers.”
Zullo said the deputy was needed on the Hawaii trip because as a sworn officer, he was allowed to be armed, while investigators from the Cold Case Posse, as volunteers, were not.
After the investigative trip to Hawaii, WND reported an intelligence source who warned early last year that a forged Obama birth record would be released now says a forged “original” birth certificate intended to pass forensic inspection by using 1961 materials is being prepared and could be released as an “October surprise.”
The source, who has contact with Hawaii government officials, was questioned by Zullo, who said regardless of whether the Hawaii source’s information pans out, he wants to see the original microfilm record of Obama’s birth.
“If they decide to try to produce a document, we’re going to be skeptical,” he said. “We’ve been calling for the microfilm from the beginning.”
Arpaio has said he wants to see the entire roll of microfilm that contains Obama’s birth record and submit it to court-certified forensic examiners to determine its authenticity.
The Hawaii source said ink and paper from 1961 have been secured to create an “original” document that would correspond with the digital copy posted on the White House website.
As WND reported one year ago, radical supporters of Obama openly have admitted their role in the forging of a Kenyan Obama birth certificate.
The White House released a purported copy of Obama’s long-form birth certificate shortly after the Drudge Report prominently leaked details of WND Book’s then-upcoming expose “Where’s the Birth Certificate.”

16 Years in Prison for a Video of a Police Officer Acting Nutty

How would you feel if you had posted a video of a trooper’s improper actions in arresting you, and you are now in court facing a 16-year prison sentence?
Be patient. It may happen to you.
It happened to Anthony Graber, a Maryland Air National Guard staff sergeant. What did he do? He posted a video of actions by an arresting Maryland highway patrolman.
Here is what the trooper did. He was in an unmarked car. He cut off Graber, who was on a motorcycle. Then he approached Graber in plain clothes. He had pulled out a gun. He was yelling.
This was before he identified himself as a law-enforcement officer.
Graber had a camera in his motorcycle helmet. He posted the video on YouTube.
The police later raided his home. They seized his computers.
Then they locked him up for 26 hours.
Then they took him to court.
They have accused him of wiretapping. Maximum sentence: 16 years.
Wiretapping? What wires?
The video constitutes a wire. Here is how the government argues. The audio aspect of a video violates the wiretap law. Why? Because this is a private conversation. The person with the camera/smart phone must get permission from the officer before posting the video on YouTube.
Will this hold up in court? We don’t know.
Maybe if you get into a situation like this, you should not include the audio portion of the video. You can summarize what you heard. Do a voice-over.
We never heard what the L.A. police were saying to Rodney King as they beat him. Sometimes actions speak louder than words. Video is great for recording action.
The police are on the defensive. This will increase.
But they can threaten people in the meantime. They can bankrupt them with court costs.

Barack Obama administration spending and projects in Kenya have become so voluminous that the U.S. Agency for International Development must hire more contractors to oversee endeavors other providers already carry out across the African nation.
USAID in its own words admits that the “overall USAID/Kenya program has increased rapidly and exponentially, outstripping workforce resources available to effectively perform assessments and rigorous analyses … track results … manage recordkeeping, and other project development and program office functions.”
According to a Statement of Work for the USAID/Kenya program-support initiative – which WND located through routine database research – the agency acknowledges the level of U.S.-financed Kenyan operations has outpaced Washington’s ability to adequately manage it.
“All levels of personnel ceilings are constrained by a limited U.S. government footprint in Kenya,” the SOW says. “In order to address these constraints, certain project development and program office functions … have been identified for delivery through external contracting.
“This group of functions will be contracted as one support activity to reduce the burden on mission staff,” the SOW continued.
USAID views with urgency its selection of a contractor, describing the procurement as a “high-priority requirement with high visibility” at the U.S. Mission.
The $480 million program at USAID/Kenya encompasses numerous assistance projects in general areas such as health, population and HIV/AIDS; basic education; youth; governing justly and democratically; and economic growth, environment and natural resources management.

Glenn: ‘NBC has crossed the line’ with misleading coverage to support progressive agenda

Glenn: ‘NBC has crossed the line’ with misleading coverage to support progressive agenda

The mainstream media here in America has been on the decline for quite some time. When was the last time anyone turned on the news and trusted the anchor to give you the truth without an agenda? It happens all the time – most of the anchors on the nightly news are operating with some kind of message or agenda they are trying to shove down the throats of the American people. But no network or company has sunk to the ethical lows of NBC and MSNBC, whose reporters are flat out lying and distorting facts and audio tapes. Are they looking for ratings? If so, it’s a failing strategy considering FOX News remains the number one force in cable news and conservatives like Glenn outshine progressive voices across all multimedia platforms wherever they appear. Are they just shilling for the President and the progressive administration because they don’t know any better? Whatever the case, they’ve made it clear they have no interest in telling the truth and have decided to just flat out lie. Glenn ran through their ugly, hateful, misleading, hypocritical track record today on radio.
“NBC has crossed the line. You have not heard me say this ever before. NBC has crossed the line and they are burning the bridge behind them,” Glenn said. “You have no credibility at all. The ratings are going to tank on NBC. Because Americans are fair.”
Glenn said that MSNBC has been headed down this road of non-reporting for a while, but said things are now shifting into high gear. For example, when news breaks that Obama’s dad was not tortured by the British as he claimed in his memoirs, but does MSNBC report on that? No, instead their weekend anchor and commentator Melissa Harris-Perry says that African American men displaying patriotism post-9/11 (aka wearing NYPD hats in solidarity with those who lost their lives saving others) is a form of PTSD!
“That’s one of the most racist things I’ve ever heard.  As if we’re not supposed to be proud of the actions of the NYPD.  Think about what they did!  Are you kidding me? ” Glenn said.
Meanwhile, Martin Bashir continues to show an anti-religion undertone when attacking Mitt Romney. For example, he allowed his guest Frank Schaeffer to attack both Mormonism and Islamism when Schaeffer said, “Looking at the religious right you have to balance their hatreds.  Do they hate the Mormonism of Mitt Romney more than they hate the pretended Islamic faith quote/unquote of the president?”
“”Got it?  That’s just anti‑religion.  That’s not anti‑Mormon.  That’s anti‑religion.  That’s anti‑God.  Does the right hate Mormonism more than Obama’s supposed Muslimism?  Wow.”
“Only NBC is referring to Barack Obama constantly as a Muslim.  Only NBC.  Why are you guys keeping that alive?  I don’t know anybody who’s rational that believes that he’s a Muslim.  I don’t think there’s anybody rational that believes he believes in anything but Barack Obama.  If there’s a God, it’s in his pants.  It’s in his suit.  It sits behind his desk.  It wears its shoes.  His God is Barack Obama.  Why are you sleeping that lie alive?  How does that benefit your cause?” Glenn said.
But Bashir joined in on the attacks by reading an op-ed by a Mormon willing to throw Romney under the bus:

In an effort to cover up the truth about "Fast & Furious" Obama has invoked Executive Privilege sealing up all the relevant documents and preventing the public from knowing what happened.

This has all the hallmarks of a Nixonian presidential cover up. is reporting that this act is an "indication that President Obama was involved in Operation Fast and Furious, which he has boldly denied."

If he has boldly denied that he was involved in or had any personal knowledge of it - why would he seal the documents that would prove it? A president seals documents when there is incriminating evidence contained within them. A president, especially this president who campaigned as Mr. Transparency, doesn't seal documents when those documents would show him in a positive light.

During the Bush administration, Obama sharply criticized Bush for asserting executive privilege. He said of Bush at that time:

"You know, there’s been a tendency on the part of this administration to — to try to hide behind executive privilege every time there’s something a little shaky that’s taking place. And I think, you know, the administration would be best served by coming clean on this. There doesn’t seem to be any national security issues involved with the U.S. attorney question."

Adding that, "I think the American people deserve to know what was going on there.”

Romney's Spending Plan to Left of Senate GOP

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has staked out a position on federal spending to the left of every Republican in the U.S. Senate.

On Dec. 14, the Senate voted on S.J. Res. 10, the proposed constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget sponsored by Sens. Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee of Utah. All 47 Senate Republicans voted for this constitutional amendment. All 53 Democrats voted against it.

Romney took no stand.

Romney did sign a "Cut, Cap and Balance" pledge, vowing to support a balanced budget amendment that would include an unspecified "spending limitation." However, he did not specifically support the Hatch-Lee Amendment that would require balancing the budget while capping federal spending at 18 percent of gross domestic product.

Senate Republicans backed the 18-percent spending cap for a reason: 18 percent approximates the average percentage of GDP the federal government has been able to collect in taxes over many decades.

To balance the budget while capping federal spending at higher than 18 percent of GDP would require raising the persistent rate of federal taxation to an unprecedented level.

"Over the long haul, we have learned that our tax system is capable of generating a revenue stream equaling a little over 18 percent of all of the revenue that moves through the American economy every single year — a little over 18 percent of our gross domestic product," Lee explained on the Senate floor the day before all his Republican colleagues backed his amendment.

"That percentage remains relatively constant," Lee said. "It has remained that way for many decades, going back to at least 1960. It averages out a little over 18 percent of gross domestic product. That remains true even when we go back 30 years or so when our top marginal income tax rates were approaching 90 percent."

Four days after Senate Republicans voted unanimously for a balanced budget amendment that would cap spending at 18 percent of GDP, Romney told Fox News about his own budget plan.

"Well, my plan is a responsible plan, and I have the specifics that show how I will cut $500 billion out of the federal budget and take federal spending from 25 percent of the GDP down to 20 percent of GDP," Romney told Fox.

"Which is, in my view, closer to the long range average and makes sense," Romney said. "I want to cut federal spending," Romney said. "I want to cap federal spending at 20 percent of the GDP and then lower it from there. And ultimately, I want to have a balanced budget amendment."

"Ultimately" he wants one. What does that mean?

In his 59-point economic plan, Romney made "Pursue a Balanced Budget Amendment' point No. 59. Point 57 says: "Cap federal spending at 20 percent of GDP."

In explaining Point 57, Romney's plan says: "One traditional yardstick for gauging whether government is living within its means is spending as a percentage of GDP. Since the 1950s, federal spending has hovered around 20 percent of GDP."

Yes, that explains why a government whose revenue averages 18 percent of GDP routinely runs deficits and steadily increases its debt.

"As president, Mitt Romney will immediately move to cut spending and cap it at 20 percent of GDP," Romney's plan goes on to say. "As spending comes under control, he will pursue further cuts that would allow caps to be set even lower so as to guarantee future fiscal stability."

What does Romney's mean when he says he will "immediately" cap spending at 20 percent of GDP? "Immediately" means four years from now.

"As president, Mitt's goal will be to bring federal spending below 20 percent of GDP by the end of his first term," says the "Spending" page on Romney's campaign website.

Since the end of World War II (in fiscal 1946), according to Office of Management and Budget data, there has been only one year — 2000 — when federal tax revenue reached as high as 20 percent of GDP. There have been 12 years when the federal government balanced its budget. The highest spending in any of those years the federal government managed to balance its budget was 19.4 percent. That was 1969 — the last fiscal year started under President Lyndon Johnson, the big-spending author of the Great Society.

In a recent interview with Mark Halperin of Time Magazine, Romney argued that cutting federal spending too quickly could cause an economic disaster.

"Well, because, if you take a trillion dollars for instance, out of the first year of the federal budget, that would shrink GDP over 5 percent," said Romney. "That is by definition throwing us into recession or depression. So I'm not going to do that, of course. ... I don't want to have us go into a recession in order to balance the budget."

"I'd like to have us have high rates of growth at the same time we bring down federal spending, on, if you will, a ramp that's affordable, but that does not cause us to enter into an economic decline," said Romney. The issue here, in Romney's view, is what the government can "afford" to cut.

SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - A grand jury has declined to bring charges against a Texas father who said he beat to death a man who was attempting to sexually assault his 5-year-old daughter, officials said on Tues

The father, whose name has not been released because he has not been charged with a crime, told police he heard his daughter's screams and ran to a secluded area where he found her under attack by Jesus Flores, 47, who worked for the family.
The father, 23, admitted to Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon and a Texas Ranger investigating the case that he beat Flores to death to protect his child during the incident earlier this month, authorities said.
The case received national attention and focused interest on exactly how far a person could go to prevent a violent crime from happening to a child.
"The Texas Rangers and the Lavaca County Sheriff completed an extensive investigation into the death of Jesus Flores, and the evidence showed that the use of deadly force was justified," District Attorney Heather McMinn said on Tuesday.
"The five year old had injuries consistent with what her father witnessed."
In the dramatic call to 9-1-1 the father made, he frantically tells the dispatcher, "I need an ambulance! This guy was raping my daughter, and I beat him up, and I don't know what to do!"

Film: President's father not Barack Obama
2 years of research, rare photos support compelling case

"Who's your real Daddy?" is a question that remarkably continues to dog Barack Obama, even as he proceeds into his fourth year as president.

With the release this July of Joel Gilbert's full-length documentary, "Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception," the mystery deepens regarding who Obama really is.

"The film provides the first cohesive understanding of Obama's deep-rooted life journey in socialism, from his childhood to his presidency," Gilbert told WND.

Gilbert rejects the official story that the Kenyan-born Barack Obama was the president's father.

Instead, he argues, Frank Marshall Davis, the radical poet and journalist who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, was the real, biological and ideological father of Barack Obama.

"I decided to investigate Frank Marshall Davis. His close physical resemblance to Obama was shocking, while Obama little resembled the Kenyan Obama," Gilbert said. "How could this be?"

Gilbert launched into what became two years of research during which he conducted interviews and discovered rare film footage and photos.

"I unearthed two film archives of Frank Marshall Davis, one from 1973, the other from 1987, as well as Davis' photo collection," he explained. "I then acquired 500 copies of the Honolulu Record, the communist-run newspaper where Davis wrote a weekly political column for eight years." Gilbert's research turned shocking when he obtained seven indecent photos of Ann Dunham, Obama's mother, at Frank Marshall Davis' house, suggesting an intimate connection between Dunham and Davis.

"I was not happy to include these racy photos in the film but found it necessary to substantiate the intimate relationship between the two," he said. "Those photos ended up in a men's mail-order catalog of nude women, likely sold to them by Davis. I placed black bars on parts of the photos to be respectful."

To establish the foundation for the photos, Gilbert documented that Davis was one of the founders of a photography club in Chicago, known as the "Lens Camera Club," and that he specialized in nude photographs.

Later in life, Davis also penned a scurrilous, autobiographical sex novel, titled "Sex Rebel: Black," in which he detailed an illicit sexual relationship with an underage woman named "Anne." Gilbert believes the name was a thin disguise for Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham.

Gilbert reconstructs Obama's autobiography, "Dreams from My Father," and concludes that the tale of the goat-herding father from Kenya is a cover story, concocted to mask an inconvenient pregnancy.

The truth, Gilbert argues, is that Barack Obama II was born from the illicit sexual relationship that rebellious teenager Ann Dunham began with Davis after her parents forced her to move to Hawaii.

Gilbert believes that when Dunham first arrived in Hawaii after graduating from high school, she used the sexual relationship with Davis to act out her frustration that her parents would not permit her to fulfill her wish to attend the University of Washington in Seattle with her Mercer Island High School friends.

In 2010, Gilbert wrote and directed a film titled "Atomic Jihad: Ahmadinejad's Coming War and Obama's Politics of Defeat." "Dreams from My Real Father" will be released this summer, with screenings in theaters across the country currently in the planning process.

Communist roots

The FBI had Davis under surveillance for 19 years, monitoring his support of the Communist Party both in Chicago and in Hawaii.

Gilbert portrays Obama as a "Red Diaper Baby," a phenomenon among the radical left, referred to as "hand-me-down Marxism," in which children of radical parents grow up to be radicals. Such was the case with much of the leadership of Students for a Democratic Society and the Weather Underground, including Obama senior political adviser David Axelrod, who was born to a mother who wrote for a communist newspaper in New York City.

"Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. His father was a goat herder from Kenya, he would bring people together, so it went," Gilbert explained. "While voters will overlook some fudging by politicians, promoting a false family background to hide an agenda irreconcilable with American values is a totally unacceptable manipulation of the electorate."

What Gilbert presents is a direct challenge to the official narrative, arguing it is more likely President Obama has a deeply disturbing family background and a hidden Marxist agenda.

"Unfortunately, Obama's style is to minimize, misdirect, and outright lie about damaging information about his past," Gilbert said. "I hope the media will now demand that he come clean about his family background, his political foundations and fully reveal his agenda for transforming America."

In writing his autobiography, Obama masked his relationship with Davis, naming him only as "Frank," a friend of his grandfather who "lived in a dilapidated house in a run-down section of Waikiki."

Gerald Horne, a contributing editor to "Public Affairs," an openly Marxist political review, made the first positive identification of "Frank" as Frank Marshall Davis.

In March 2007, Horne gave a speech at New York University on the occasion of the Communist Party USA archive being placed at an NYU library.

In that speech, Horne discussed Davis, noting that Davis, who was born in Kansas and lived much of his adult life in Chicago, had moved to Honolulu in 1948 at the suggestion of his good friend, actor Paul Robeson. In the 1940s, Robeson was an outspoken critic of segregation and racial discrimination in the U.S., a strong advocate of the Soviet Union and a member of the Communist Party USA.

Horne also documented Davis's friendship with the Dunham family in Hawaii.

"Eventually, [Davis] befriended another family – a Euro-American family – that had migrated to Honolulu from Kansas, and a young woman from this family eventually had a child with a young student from Kenya East Africa who goes by the name of Barack Obama, who, retracing the steps of Davis, eventually decamped to Chicago."

Lorne further stated Davis was "a decisive influence in helping [Obama] to find his present identity as an African-American, a people who have been the least anti-communist and the most left-leaning of any constituency in this nation."

After Horne's speech, the identity of "Frank" was never in doubt, nor his importance in the development of the young Barack Obama.

On Dec. 5, 1956, Davis appeared in executive session before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee investigating "the scope of Soviet activity in the United States," one of the McCarthy-era panels seeking to expose communists considered to be a security threat.

Invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Davis refused to answer a direct question asking if he was then a communist.

A year earlier, in 1955, a Commission on Subversive Activities organized by the government of the Territory of Hawaii identified Davis as a member of the Communist Party USA. The committee singled out for criticism several articles Davis published in the "Communist Honolulu Record" that were critical of the commission.

May 19th Communist Organization

Gilbert documents Obama's association at Columbia University with what was known as the May 19th Communist Organization, an above-ground support group for the Weather Underground based in New York City from 1978 to 1985.

"May 19th" carried out raucous anti-Apartheid and anti-Klan protests and operated a host of front organizations.

At the time, Weather Underground co-founder William Ayers – Obama's Chicago neighbor and colleague in education reform – wrote that May 19th provided "a sea for the guerrillas to swim in."

Some May 19th members committed acts of violence and terrorism, such as the 1981 Nanuet Brinks robbery and murders, the bombing of South African offices in 1981 and the U.S. Capitol bombing in 1983.

"I spoke with a former FBI informant who told me the May 19th Communist Organization had a weapons training camp in the Catskill Mountains, run by former Black Panthers," Gilbert told WND. "In addition, some May 19th members were sent to Cuba for several weeks each year with the Venceremos Brigade, a continuation of the SDS/Weather Underground program begun in the '60s, for explosives training from Cuban intelligence, DGI."

Obama's election was not a sudden political phenomenon, Gilbert maintains.

"It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii and has been quietly infiltrating the U.S. economy, universities and media for decades," he explained. "To understand Obama's plans for America, look no further than communist Frank Marshall Davis."

About a year ago, a book called "Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President" by New York Times bestselling author Jerome Corsi was the fastest-selling new book in the country a month before its scheduled release.

On the day it hit No. 1 at Amazon, White House records indicate Obama was desperate to derail the issue of eligibility from breaking through into the mainstream media, which has been complicit in covering up all questions pertaining to the issue for four years.

What Obama did next was not unexpected by Corsi and the WND Books team that published it.

"Jerry Corsi called me a couple weeks earlier and told me his sources said the White House was going to release a fraudulent Hawaiian birth certificate before the book released to head off the success of the book and to end the burgeoning controversy," says Joseph Farah, founder and chief executive officer of WND and WND Books. "There was not much we could do about that. We were anticipating the move and planning to subject the document to intense forensic investigation."

On April 27, 2011, the White House posted the alleged long-form birth certificate on its official government website to quell the growing doubts about its existence.

"The media, partners in the crime of the cover-up of Obama's ineligibility for the presidency, quickly embraced the document without even a cursory examination," said Farah.
