Ginger or Maryanne?

Friday, July 5th, 2013

At least once in the life of every 29 year old hacker the question arises: Ginger or Maryanne?

The “Ginger” honey trap

The Maryanne’s cupcakes honey trap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thus is the dilemma for former NSA analyst Edward Snowden.

“The simple message “Snowden, will you marry me?” was posted to Chapman’s personal account Wednesday.”

That’s going to leave a welt on the alphabet agencies in Foggie Bottom.

As National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden continued to cool his heels in the transit zone at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport, waiting to hear a positive response to one of his many asylum requests, he received an unlikely marriage proposal via Twitter from ex-Russian spy Anna Chapman.

Forget the charges of Treason and espionage, this poor lad has women problems. When the pole dancing acrobat finds out Chapman proposed we are going to see the mother of all cat-fights!

Meanwhile, back in Mother Russia, Vlad Putin has (allegedly) a new girlfriend.

“I’m smitten, Kitten”

Honey, let me show you my Superbowl Ring.

The First Amendment under Assault

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Don’t for a moment think this was an accident lapse in judgement. It’s right there in Saul Alinski’s playbook, #13:

Washington (CNN) – Officials at the Internal Revenue Service knew in June 2011 that their agents were targeting conservative groups for additional scrutiny on tax documents, an inspector general report to be released this week is expected to say, according to a congressional source familiar with the inquiry.

Further, an early timeline of events compiled by the inspector general and obtained by CNN indicates the agency’s practice of singling out conservative groups began as early as March 2010, and in July of that year, unidentified managers within the agency “requested its specialists to be on the lookout for tea party applications.” In August, specialists were warned to be on the lookout for “various local organizations in the tea party movement” applying for tax-exempt status. The specific criteria would change several times over the next two years, according to a portion of the report.

Let’s recall what was happening back in March, 2010. Like this:

This was Nancy Pelosi with her gavel marching with her minions to pass the Health Care Act, on a Sunday no less, March 21, 2010. This is the march that members of Congress reported they were spit on and racial epithets were hurled. The TEA Party bristled with indignation. The planned to have these people removed from Congress. They would organize. They demanded repeal.

A week later, after passage of this monstrosity (“We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in the bill.”), the Hutaree militia in Michigan was arrested by the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The Hutaree Militia was a group who could have had their own reality TV show like The Duck Dynasty if it hadn’t been for a current Supreme Court Justice. Two weeks before they were arrested in late March (28-30) of 2010 on charges of seditious conspiracy, they were out in the woods helping local law enforcement look for a lost child.

Two years (to the day) after their arrests came the ruling which I wrote about:

In a sharp rebuke, a federal judge today acquitted seven members of a Lenawee County militia group of plotting to overthrow the U.S. government with weapons of mass destruction.

U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts said federal prosecutors failed in five weeks of trial to prove that the Hutaree had a specific plan to kill a police officer and attack law enforcement personnel.

That’s gunna leave a welt.

From the Order:

Stone, Sr:

Josh Stone:

Tina Stone:

David Stone, Jr.

Michael Meeks:

Now Sickles:

Piatek:

I will update this entry as time provides, but suffice it to say this was all about the Health Care debate. These arrests happened one week after the House passed ObamaCare and certain representatives claimed to have been spit on during their march through the TEA party opposing the passage.

Don’t ever forget Elena Kagan was the Solicitor General at the time, when these people were granted bond by this judge. She have to approve the appeal of the bond. She kept these people in jail for political purposes. [emphasis added]

The prosecutor was asked about the acquittal, which at the time I also wrote about:

In her first remarks since the case was gutted, U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said she wouldn’t have handled the case differently and “strongly” disagrees with the judge’s interpretation of federal conspiracy law.

She can disagree all she wants, and she certainly has the right to do so, but that’s not the scary part. The scary part is she hasn’t learned anything from this defeat.

Militia members are finding that resuming their lives isn’t easy. Despite his acquittal, Michael Meeks of Manchester, Mich., said he can’t open a bank account yet because the bank told him he’s still on a terror watch list.

Completely exonerated and he can’t even get a bank account.

Told of the troubles, McQuade didn’t seem moved.

It’s the consequences of their actions,” the prosecutor told the AP.

This is how vindictive these people are. Elena Kagan, then the Solicitor General refused these people bond, knowing this case was either flimsy at best or political at worst. Either way she should be impeached for this behavior.

Now the IRS has admitted to breaking the law to prevent TEA Party activists from gaining a tax exempt status. What should the “consequences of their actions” be?

I’m thinking “seditious conspiracy” fits here.

Additional reading for those interested.

Let’s not forget, the AP wiretap by the DOJ.

I’m with the Revolutionary!

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

Yes, kiddies, I’m siding with the Revolutionary despite this report:

 

Florida House and Senate budget leaders have awarded Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw $1 million for a new violence prevention unit aimed at preventing tragedies like those in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., from occurring on his turf.

His turf, mind you…

“We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him,” Bradshaw said. “What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’ ”

Well for starters, you would have to knock on that door armed. And what would you do if no one answered the door? Go back and get a warrant, or just kick the door down with your jackboot? A armed resident could require  as many SWAT members as were necessary for the Normandy Invasion.

Hating your government shouldn’t create an Oxbow incident. It’s not as if this sheriff holds an Orb and sepulchre. Obviously, this sheriff needs some horse cents- because silence is golden. Or in this case that would be GoldenCents.

 

Bring it on, Biden

A Heartbeat Away

Vice president Joe Biden opened his ignorant pie-hole again.

According to The Weekly Standard:

“By the way, there should be two senators from the state of D.C.,” he said to hoots and hollers.

Two new U.S. senators from Washington, D.C. would almost surely be Democrats. In the last presidential election, President Obama picked up 91.4 percent of the vote in Washington, D.C.; Mitt Romney picked up only 7.1 percent.

Aside from the obvious problems with superceding the 23rd Amendment of The Constitution which would have to be done with another Amendment, there is this:

Article I

Section 8.

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes,

To exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States, and to exercise like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the state in which the same shall be, for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings;

One would think those states that ceded land to the federal government would have a claim to it in the event a new state was envisioned. Which would create conflict with Article IV:

Section 3

New states may be admitted by the Congress into this union; but no new states shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other state; nor any state be formed by the junction of two or more states, or parts of states, without the consent of the legislatures of the states concerned as well as of the Congress.

But be that as it may, there is a more prescient problem for Uncle Joe. Which parts of the Code of Federal Regulations and the U.S. Code would have to be repealed or superceded so that the new state could promulgate its new laws? You see, the District of Columbia city council can’t pass anything without specific authorization of Congress, who hold the purses strings. Generally, Congress let’s the city pass ordinances. But Congress holds ultimate authority. For centuries, Congress has been publishing D.C. municipal law in the Federal Register as Acts of Congress. So, specifically, which laws are “Municipal” in scope, and which are Federal?

For instance, Title 26 of the United States Code has never been enacted into positive law. Is that because it is “Municipal” in scope, similar to a city ordinance? Can you imagine that title being repealed so the new state could promulgate law? That would mean it was municipal all along.

You’ll have to repeal all the municipal laws to create the new state law. All of them. Like Obama, I’m all ears, Uncle Joe.

Family Ties

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Something has been bothering me about the Marathon bombers case. I had a difficult time putting my finger on it until this morning. You see, someone I know was forced to call the F.B.I. concerning a large investment that was not being returned per the agreement. When the Feds showed up to interview, one of the questions was “What do you want us to do?” The obvious answer, the correct answer, was “Put him in jail.” To that the agent replied, “Good, because we are not a collection agency.”

So when this was reported by The Blaze

The decision to release images of the men later identified as Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev came partly because investigators wanted to “limit the damage” being done by amateur Internet sleuths and the news media in fingering the wrong people as suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings.

it was the investigation that they were worried about, not some poor shlubs reputation. The FBI wanted the focus on these two, to the exclusion of everyone else. Is that how to run an investigation?

Sounds a lot like Alinsky’s Rule 13 to me.

Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

‘Limit the damage’ requires assistance from the media; not so difficult when you realize just whom the go to when they need to fill airtime. Let’s look at who CNN went to, Judith Kayyam. CNN foisted her upon its audience. Here is a portion of her bio:

Juliette N. Kayyem is presently the national security and foreign policy columnist for the Boston Globe and serves on the faculty at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. She most recently served for President Obama as Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs at the Department of Homeland Security. She has spent over 15 years in senior positions in state and federal government, including as Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick’s homeland security advisor, a legal advisor to US Attorney General Janet Reno, and a congressional appointee to the National Commission on Terrorism.

What this bio fails to mention is she is currently working to get cable networks to take on al Jeezera- AlGore’s former Current TV. During the Oklahoma City bombing she sent this e-mail:

From Walid Shoebat- I encourage you to read the whole post:

 

Speaking of the Oklahoma City bombing, that makes a nice segue to Kayyem’s apparent involvement in the coverup of a murder.

Yes, there is a paper trail.

In 1997, Kayyem was more than just a little familiar with the bizarre circumstances surrounding the death of Kenneth Michael Trentadue, who died in a federal prison in 1995. For years, the Medical Examiner refused to rule the death a suicide. On October 1, 1997, Kayyem sent an email and referred to the ‘Trentadue mission’ as being “like coordinating the invasion of Normandy”. She also made reference to ‘Eric’s schedule’, presumably a reference to then Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder.

 

Trentadue_Mission_EmailWhich brings us to the Saudi ‘witness’ that was going to be deported.

Who is this guy? And what is he doing in my country?

 

Several reports say that First Lady Michelle Obama visited him in the hospital. First he was supposed to be deported as a threat to domestic security, then he was ‘only a witness’ and being deported anyway. Now, it seems, he’s not being deported.

The House Committee on Homeland Security on Sunday emailed TheBlaze a copy of their request to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for more information on the Saudi national originally described as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing.

The Saudi national — originally identified as Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi — has been the topic of fierce debate in recent days, after he was reportedly set to be deported under section 212 3B of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) – “Security and related grounds” – “Terrorist activities,” after the bombing.

The story gained a curious twist when, after it gained more traction, President & Chief Content Officer for TheBlaze Joel Cheatwood received word from one of his investigative reporters that “there is now discussion that they may not allow this man to be deported.”

Makes one wonder what the heck is going on. But let’s not forget, President Obama has kin in Saudi Arabia.

Abdullah Al Ahmadi mentioned in this photo, part of the delegation thanking Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Tatal, is Virginia Goeldner’s son-in-law.

 

Virginia [Dunham] and Cecil met at the Boeing plant in Kansas. The two married in Wellington and had three children: One child died at the age of three and a half to cancer. That left daughter Debi, known as Laya,” and son, Kevin. Cecil and Virginia moved to Arkansas with Cecil job after the children had finished school. The Goeldners’ describe Debi as an honor student who attended the same college that her grandfather did in Lawrence, KS.

A linguistics major, Debi worked as a professor at the college in Lawrence, teaching foreign students English. “One of the students Debi taught became her husband, an Engineering student from Saudi Arabia on scholarship. He graduated a year before she did,” Virginia said. “Debi’s main emphasis was the Arabic language. She moved to Saudi Arabia with her husband after graduation, where she lives today with their five children.

Her husband, Abdullah Al-Ahmadi is a Civil Engineer and a manager with Saudi Aramco.

undefined
Virginia Goeldner said when her nephew was elected to the U.S. Senate from Illinois, she knew he would someday run for president. She just didn’t expect it so soon.

Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham, was Virginia Goeldner’s brother.

There’s more. Much more.

 

Deportation of Aliens Begins!

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Speaking the day after the marathon on the bombing in Boston, Janet Napolitano had this to say:

I reiterated the Department of Homeland Security’s support to the FBI-led investigation and the Administration’s commitment to bringing whoever committed this act of terror to justice. While there is no current indication to suggest that the events in Boston are indicative of a broader plot, out of an abundance of caution, DHS continues to keep in place enhanced security measures at transportation hubs, utilizing measures both seen and unseen. We continue to urge the American public to remain vigilant and immediately report any signs of suspicious activity to local law enforcement officials.”

As things became a bit more fluid, a ‘person of interest’ was questioned.

Officials in Boston detained Saudi national Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi a 20 year-old exchange student. He is believed to have entered the country on a student visa. Late yesterday Abdulrahman was cleared by federal officials in the Boston bombing.

That’s odd. How could they ‘clear’ him so fast? Hmmm… let’s look at his background. Walid Shoebat:

“A couple of weeks ago we warned America about the very serious problem of Saudi infiltration; many of these Saudi nationals are criminals and terrorists.

After the bombings, a Saudi by the name of Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi was hospitalized and became a ‘suspect’, then a ‘person of interest’. His apartment was searched by federal and local authorities. No confirmation has been given so far to his involvement. The Media were quick to claim his innocence, of course.

Perhaps a quick look at the Arabic sources should raise the eyebrows of every American relative to the extent of the problem at hand. Many from Al-Harbi’s clan are steeped in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda. Out of a list of 85 terrorists listed by the Saudi government shows several of Al-Harbi clan to have been active fighters in Al-Qaeda:

#15 Badr Saud Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#73 Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#26 Khalid Salim Uwaid Al-Lahibi Al-Harbi
#29 Raed Abdullah Salem Al-Thahiri Al-Harbi
#43 Abdullah Abdul Rahman Muhammad Al-Harbi (leader)
#60 Fayez Ghuneim Humeid Al-Hijri Al-Harbi

Source: http://aalhameed1.net/vb/showthread.php?t=1565

Then you have Al-Harbi clan members in Gitmo:

Salim Salman Awadallah Al-Sai’di Al-Harbi
Majid Abdullah Hussein Al-Harbi
Muhammad Abdullah Saqr Al-Alawi Al-Harbi
Ghanem Abdul Rahman Ghanem Al-Harbi
Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awfi Al-Harbi”

No, he couldn’t possibly be a suspect. Incidentally, Mr. Obama had a unscheduled meeting with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House according to Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House on Wednesday and discussed the conflict in Syria, a spokeswoman said.

The meeting was not on Obama’s public schedule.

The spokeswoman, Caitlin Hayden, said the president joined a meeting between the Saudi official and Obama’s national security adviser, Tom Donilon.

This meeting was just prior to the announcement that this non-suspect is being deported.

Since when does this administration deport anyone? Just remember: Denial is not a River in Saudi Arabia.

Public Diplomacy

Monday, April 15th, 2013

I’m sure most people have not heard of the term; I certainly hadn’t until recently. Let’s go to Wiki:

“PUBLIC DIPLOMACY refers to government-sponsored programs intended to inform or influence public opinion in other countries; its chief instruments are publications, motion pictures, cultural exchanges, radio and television.”

Which brings us to the tragic case of Anne Smedinghoff who was killed over a week ago in Afghanistan.

 

Smedinghoff, who was from suburban River Forest, died in an attack that also killed five other Americans more than one week ago.

Early reports said she was in an armed convoy when a suicide bomber detonated explosives, but now, an Afghan television reporter says the group was lost while walking from a book donation event.

The governor of the Afghani province was reportedly to be present at the book donations for the school for girls. So it is likely he was the target, but one cannot rule out Americans being targeted for their public diplomacy’s failure to understand the way Afghans treat women.

 An FBI probe into the incident that killed 25-year-old foreign service officer Anne Smedinghoff and the others is still preliminary. … On Thursday, State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said the group had been walking to the school but could provide no additional details other than identifying the most seriously wounded of three other diplomats injured in the attack. Ventrell said Kelly Hunt, a public diplomacy officer, was being treated at a U.S. military hospital in Germany.

(citation omitted)

I understand the engagement of the Afghani people in this ‘public diplomacy’, but sending a unarmed 25 year old girl into a war zone? Doesn’t that raise questions about women in combat? Did the service members protecting her die for public diplomacy? Just how important is this ‘public diplomacy’?

Here’s the troubling part.

 

Mail received on April 10 at 8:00 pm PST from an FSO:

 

I knew Anne well. I am sending you this as the Department has been actively recruiting her friends and coworkers to talk to the press or to write about her even while no Department memorial service will be held. Kabul held one, as did Caracas, and I understand the regional bureau did as well. Some posts voluntarily lowered flags to half mast, but no order was sent. I actually understand the flag issue, we don’t lower the flag for every member of the armed forces lost, and Ambassador Stevens, for whom we did lower the flag, was after all the personal representative of the President.

Friends of Anne have been in contact with AFSA to potentially hold a memorial this Friday in their space due to the failure of the Department to provide a time and space. I have to ask why the same Department that actively kept people from talking/writing about Ambassador Stevens even while publicly hailing him is taking this tack now.  I and others, have been bothered by what frankly seems like a blatant use of her story for unclear purposes. The fact that the details emerging are now very different from what was originally released, even accounting for the fog of the situation, is also bothersome.

Hoping you can broach the subject. Feel free to email me but I’d appreciate not being named, even by pen name.

Indeed. Why the silence from the administration on Ambassador Stevens?

Little Kim Dick ‘tater

 

With all the hand wringing on whether or not Kim Jung Un is capable of nuclear war, whether or not he has ‘married’ nuclear devises to missiles, what should be done about it… Blah, blah, Blahblahblah blah.

Let’s trick the lad. Let’s Surrender. That’s right, surrender. All it would take is an Executive Order.

Obama needs to show the world we are no longer the ‘bully’ of the world, forcing little countries to starve or convert to capitalism. America needs to come down a notch. Just surrender. Let Little Kim take over and solve our unemployment problem with work gangs and gulags! Think how quickly the illegal aliens would flee once the occupiers landed!

The first problem Little Kim could solve is the monetary crisis. As Victor, he would be obliged to rebuild our nation! Free homes for everyone! Free medicine! A state run media! Mandatory education for all!

Just think of the 99% election turnouts! We would never have to debate gun control legislation! PETA would never have to worry about stray cats and dogs ever again! The environmentalists would be so pleased to see everyone become vegans and eating grass seed.

While we are at it, we might as well surrender to the Taliban, too. Think of the cool houses of worship we could build.

What would be the difference from what we have now? At least we avoid nuclear war.

Odd Ends

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

There are a couple things I noticed in passing that require a bit of light shone on them.

First, this report:

The federal Treasury expects to collect a record $2.712 trillion in taxes on Americans and U.S. business this year, shattering the 2007 high of $2.5 trillion in taxes.

More shocking in the president’s 376-page “Historical Tables,” is the projection that tax receipts will soar during the remainder of the president’s second term, reaching nearly $4 trillion in 2018, four times Uncle Sam’s take in 1989.

That’s odd. The president wants to raise taxes even higher. The ends justify the means, I presume.

Next, we have another guilty plea in the Blagojevich fiasco:

Another piece of unfinished business in the decade-long investigation of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s administration has been dealt with in federal court in Chicago.

Building contractor Jacob Kiferbaum pleaded guilty Wednesday to attempted extortion in an amended plea deal. It calls for a prison term of about two years when he is sentenced July 17.

Why is this odd you ask?
Kiferbaum pleaded guilty in 2007 according to this report. So five and a half years after he pleads guilty he might get sentenced to two years– in three months. That’s odd. Not quite as odd as Joe Cari’s sentence- from the same report:
In August 2011, Joe [Cari] – a close friend of Joe Biden – was sentenced to three years of…wait for it…wait for it…yes, pro-ba-tion.  Oh, the state pension fund was for school teachers.
The lesson? Never steal money unless you have the assent of all your colleagues in Congress, comrade.

Uncle Joe describes the maximum penis size allowed for democrats
