Sunni Muslim militants fighting to set up a hardline Islamic regime in Iraq posted shocking photos over the weekend showing captured Iraqi government soldiers being loaded by the dozen onto trucks, then gunned down in a mass grave on the side of the road.
The graphic images were taken in the Salahuddin province north of Baghdad, after militants with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant seized an Iraqi Army base in the area, reported the Long War Journal, a publication which tracks Islamist militant groups.
A photo essay posted on social media platforms associated with the militant group appeared to document the disturbing events as they played out.
(Warning: some of the images are graphic and may be unsettling to some readers.)
The news network would cut ties with the former first daughter if her mother formally announces that she will be seeking the presidency. Is this even more proof that the MSM is just part of the Democrat elite? People should be in jail.
NEW YORK – In his new full-length documentary film, “There’s No Place Like Utopia,” Joel Gilbert found Peggy Joseph, the Florida voter who became infamous during the 2008 presidential campaign for saying Barack Obama would “pay for my gas and my mortgage.”
Surprisingly, some six years into the Obama presidency, Joseph has turned against the president, disappointed that he did not deliver on his “hope and change” campaign promises.
“Peggy reminded me of Dorothy from ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ who thought the magical wizard would solve all her problems,” Gilbert told WND in an interview.

The sordid history of American presidents trying to overthrow enemy countries and assassinate leaders of those nations is not new. In fact, there was a strong case at one time for presidents to do whatever they had to do to protect American interests and democracy. To the left, these claims are seen as propaganda coming from fascist right-leaning Americans and antagonistic to the facts. You see, it appears that these liberals constantly refer to Nixon and his wars when making their claims about right-winged schemes to demolish democratically elected governments that at are odds with United States capitalistic and business interests. Let's examine the truth about such claims and see whether or not presidents from both parties saw a need to meddle in foreign countries internal affairs. The follow experts are from Wikipedia:
JFK and Vietnam: “The arrest and assassination of Ngô Đình Diệm, then president of South Vietnam, marked the culmination of a successful CIA-backed coup d’état led by General Dương Văn Minh in November 1963. On the morning of November 2, 1963, Diệm and his adviser, younger brother Ngô Đình Nhu, were arrested after the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) had been successful in a bloody overnight siege on Gia Long Palace in Saigon. The coup was the culmination of nine years of autocratic and nepotistic family rule in South Vietnam. Discontent with the Diệm regime had been simmering below the surface, and exploded with mass Buddhist protests against long-standing religious discrimination after the government shooting of protesters who defied a ban on the flying of the Buddhist flag.
When rebel forces entered the palace, the Ngô brothers were not present, as they had escaped the night before to a loyalist shelter in Cholon. The brothers had kept in communication with the rebels through a direct link from the shelter to the palace, and misled them into believing that they were still in the palace. The Ngô brothers soon agreed to surrender and were promised safe exile; after being arrested, they were instead executed in the back of an armoured personnel carrier by ARVN officers on the journey back to military headquarters at Tân Sơn Nhứt Air Base.
While no formal inquiry was conducted, the responsibility for the deaths of the Ngô brothers is commonly placed on Minh’s bodyguard, Captain Nguyễn Văn Nhung, and on Major Dương Hiếu Nghĩa, both of whom guarded the brothers during the trip. Minh’s army colleagues and US officials in Saigon agreed that Minh ordered the executions. They postulated various motives, including that the brothers had embarrassed Minh by fleeing the Gia Long Palace, and that the brothers were killed to prevent a later political comeback. The generals initially attempted to cover up the execution by suggesting that the brothers had committed suicide, but this was contradicted when photos of the Ngôs’ bloodied bodies surfaced in the media.
Kennedy learned of the deaths on the following morning when National Security Council staffer Michael Forrestal rushed into the cabinet room with a telegram reporting the Ngo brothers' suicides. According to General Maxwell Taylor, "Kennedy leaped to his feet and rushed from the room with a look of shock and dismay on his face which I had never seen before." Kennedy had planned that Diem would be safely exiled and Arthur Schlesinger recalled that the U.S. president was "somber and shaken". Kennedy later penned a memo, lamenting that the assassination was "particularly abhorrent" and blaming himself for approving Cable 243, which authorised Lodge to explore coup options in the wake of Nhu's attacks on the Buddhist pagodas. Forrestal said that “It shook him personally...bothered him as a moral and religious matter. It shook his confidence, I think, in the kind of advice he was getting about South Vietnam.” When Kennedy was consoled by a friend who told him he need not feel sorry for the Ngo brothers on the grounds of despotism, Kennedy replied “No. They were in a difficult position. They did the best they could for their country.”
Here is what Wikipedia writes about the Nixon/Allende affair:
“Salvador Isabelino del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús Allende Gossens (Spanish pronunciation: [salβaˈðoɾ aˈʝende ˈɣosens]; 26 June 1908 – 11 September 1973) was a Chilean physician and is generally considered the first democratically elected Marxist to become president of a country in the Americas.
“The possibility of Allende winning Chile's 1970 election was deemed a disaster by a US government who wanted to protect US business interests and prevent any spread of communism during the Cold War. In September 1970, President Nixon informed the CIA that an Allende government in Chile would not be acceptable and authorized $10 million to stop Allende from coming to power or unseat him. The CIA's plans to impede Allende's investiture as President of Chile were known as "Track I" and "Track II"; Track I sought to prevent Allende from assuming power via so-called "parliamentary trickery", while under the Track II initiative, the CIA tried to convince key Chilean military officers to carry out a coup.
“During Nixon's presidency, U.S. officials attempted to prevent Allende's election by financing political parties aligned with opposition candidate Jorge Alessandri and supporting strikes in the mining and transportation sectors.
“After General Pinochet assumed power, United States Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told President Richard Nixon that the U.S. "didn't do it," but "we helped them...created the conditions as great as possible." (referring to the coup itself). Recent documents declassified under the Clinton administration's Chile Declassification Project show that the United States government and the CIA sought the overthrow of Allende in 1970 immediately before he took office ("Project FUBELT"), but claims of their direct involvement in the 1973 coup are not proven by any publicly available documentary evidence, although many documents still remain classified.”
So what are the two above examples really about and what does it mean concerning what is going on now in Egypt? The facts, as I will explain this is shocking, and I believe a case for impeachment of President Obama based on treason is in order. Treason?
Michael Savage wrote the other day, "Barack Obama has been playing a critical role in making sure that Egypt, one of our staunchest allies in the Middle East, is positioned to become the next member of the Union of Iranian Radical Islamist Republics headed by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Every single word out of the president’s mouth, every single move he’s made has had the effect of stabbing Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in the back, of opening the door to Islamist radicals taking another step on their way to restoring an unholy caliphate in that region."
I wrote that the other day concerning the farce going on in Egypt and how the Media and the Obama administration are forcing the overthrow of a sovern government on the basis of a few demonstrators, that if the truth were told would be seen to be "planted" and not even Egyptians. 80 million Egyptians are being screwed!
It can be claimed honestly that both Kennedy and Nixon did what they did, maybe against the spirit of American ideology, in the best interest of the American people. Those who see only Nixon's actions as un-American are just blind to the fact that Roosevelt, Eisenhower and John Kennedy did the same things. Eisenhower overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran in the 1950's in-order to place the Shah back on the throne of that nation in insuring the flow of cheap oil. There is no dispute that this is the case. Jimmy Carter, in turn, plotted the toppled of the Shah in his moronic belief that Americans should support only democracies, even if those nations turned out to be enemies of our people. Naïve yes, treasonous no. Being stupid is not a treasonous act and Jimmy Carter is probably the dumbest moron to ever sit in the White House. Next to him, King George II (aka President Bush) looks like a NASA scientist.
When it comes to this latest Egyptian crisis, we are not witnessing a naïve response from a weak moronic president. I believe we are witnessing a cold calculated destruction of American interest and safety by a “Manchurian candidate” who was planted in the White House by evil leftist anti - American, Marxist and Communist to destroy the nation. They chose a constitutional illegal candidate on purpose as a sign of this total hatred to the American Constitution and our way of life! What President Obama has done to our allies is a purposeful plan of destroying American power in the world, and making us vulnerable to attack by our enemies, something I fear will end up causing the deaths of perhaps MILLIONS of Americans in the next twenty years! That, my friends, is TREASON.
Honestly, this list could go to 200 pages long! The facts are evident and plan is clear- Obama and “friends” want to end your way of life as you know it and replace it with anything that is not American in origin. This president is not attempting to overthrow the nations that are our enemies, instead he is overthrowing our ally's governments! The same administration that never raised a word concerning the slaughter of thousands of Iranians last year, now can't stop dictating to our ally just how they should handle their internal problems!
Obama is the real life movie from the 80's called 'TRADING PLACES' where two rich brothers bet one dollar that they could turn a street, dope peddling thug into a Wall Street investor. It appears George Soros and friends made the same bet - picked a former drug peddler (yes this IS a picture of Obama to the left in his drug selling days) and turned this Kenyan born illegal into the the president. In the process, these billionaires made a fortune, when they robbed you of all of your wealth! You just haven't realized it yet!
It is time for Congress to do their job, and frankly, time for US to do OUR JOB and SPEAK OUT FOR AMERICA and for IMPEACHMENT.

(NEW YORK POST) Six soldiers died in the frantic search for Sgt. Bowe Bergdhal immediately after his mysterious disappearance five years ago, fueling the increasing backlash over the POW’s recovery.
Former platoon mates of the now-recovered serviceman accused Bergdhal of deserting his post and blamed him for the unnecessary deaths of comrades.
“I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on,” former Sgt. Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl’s platoon, told CNN. “Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.”
Story by the Associated Press; curated by Jason Howerton
HONG KONG (AP) — President Barack Obama’s half brother is publishing an autobiography that details the domestic abuse that served as the theme for his earlier semiautobiographical novel, which featured an abusive parent patterned on their late father. In fact, Mark Obama Ndesandjo says he wants to “set the record straight” about some of the lies President Obama included in his bestselling 1995 memoir, “Dreams From My Father.”
Ndesandjo also recounts his sporadic but intense encounters with his brother over the years in “Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery.” The self-published book is to be released in February. In “Dreams From My Father,” Obama seeks to learn more about their father, a mostly absent figure, after learning of his death in a car crash in 1982 at age 46.
Ndesandjo’s book comes four years after his novel, “Nairobi to Shenzhen: A Novel of Love in the East.” As in his first book, Ndesandjo wanted to raise awareness of domestic abuse by using his family’s story, although he said in an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday that the president’s relatives have not universally welcomed his airing of private matters in public. Ndesandjo spoke ahead of a news conference to launch the book in Guangzhou on Thursday.
When asked how he would describe his relationship with his brother, he said, “Right now it’s cold and I think part of the reason is because of my writing. My writing has alienated some people in my family.” More>>>>>>>>>
First Published in The Plain Truth in the Fall of 2009! Yes, we are ahead of our time!
There have been a lot of comparisons of Obama to Roosevelt or Reagan
or Kennedy but I am beginning to think he is more like Nixon. Yes, that
but to this story..........
The Star-Ledger, the largest newspaper in New Jersey,
endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election last October. A little more than a year later, the paper’s editorial board has drawn parallels with Obama and Richard Nixon.
Specifically, the newspaper cited his
widely disputed statements on Obamacare, the National Security Agency’s
spying on foreign allies, and on dealing with Syria’s chemical weapons,
and asked, “What’s the public to believe?”
In the editorial,
which carried the headline, “Obama’s Growing Credibility Gap,” the
board wrote: “It’s more than not just an old wives’ tale that a
politician is only as good as his word. It’s mostly true.”
“(A politician) can lose an election —
even more than one, as Richard Nixon proved — and still win the voters
favor,” the editorial said of the president who left office in disgrace
after the the Watergate scandal. “But he’s in real trouble if the paying
public stops believing what he says, as Nixon also discovered. That’s
why President Obama’s real problem is not so much the botched rollout of
the Affordable Care Act, but the growing sense he doesn’t tell the
whole truth, or doesn’t know it. Either can be fatal for leader.”
The editorial referred to Obama’s
tortured explanation for having “sworn on a stack of speeches that
everyone who’s happy with his or her current health insurance can keep
it under Obamacare.”
The Star-Ledger did not directly accuse Obama of lying, but assumed he either didn’t know or decided to “fudge” the truth.
You may have your suspicions about what’s going on behind closed doors at the White House.
But according to one of President Obama’s former body guards it’s much worse than we can even imagine.
Dan Bongino has protected numerous Presidents over his career,
including President Obama. He has been within ear-shot of many a
discussion in the Oval Office, but up until this administration has
stayed out of the lime light. Apparently, however, the activities of
this administration are so abhorrent that he could no longer keep quiet.
Bongino is so upset with what he witnessed that he is now running for
Congress because he feels it’s the only way to take America back from
the sycophants who have made every effort to enrich themselves with
money and power at the expense of the American people.

Do you remember Nixon’s Articles of
Impeachment? Right smack dab in the middle of President Richard Nixon’s
list of crimes was using the IRS to punish his critics and political
opponents. Don’t look now but we’ve got another Nixon in the White
The IRS is embroiled in a huge
political scandal. But you don’t have the full story. Last week they
admitted to targeting and intimidating conservative and Tea Party
groups. But the scandal gets bigger by the hour.
But here’s the big mystery- why would
the IRS publicly admit this? The answer is simple- The IRS
thought a quick apology, throwing a few “low level employees” under the
bus, could nip it in the butt and make it all go away before the
evidence leads directly to the president. They were wrong. This will
grow into one of the biggest scandals in U.S. political history- if the media does their job. This should lead to Obama’s impeachment- if the media does their job.
How do I know this scandal is much bigger than what has been disclosed so far?
Because I’ve been living it. As
an outspoken critic of Obama, I’ve been under IRS attack since January
of 2011. I am living proof of how bad it is, when it started, and that
it was directed at individuals, not just conservative groups. MORE>>>>>>>>>>
Even with voting results from two vital "swing states" still
outstanding, Barack Obama has been declared the winner in his long
political battle with GOP challenger Mitt Romney.
Needing 270 electoral votes to make it official, the president
was declared the winner of Ohio's 18 votes shortly after 11:00 p.m.
(Eastern) on Tuesday night -- running his total to 275. Within
minutes of that announcement, the Romney campaign challenged the
Ohio call because of that state's very close popular vote.
Florida (29 electoral votes) and Virginia (13) -- both critical
swing states where the final tally in the popular vote was
extremely close -- had not yet been called at that time.
Romney had a very slight lead in the popular vote at press
NEW YORK – As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack
Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger
puzzled his colleagues.
Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that
the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student
is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s
wedding ceremony in 1992.
Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring
Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first

Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D., examined
photographs of Obama’s ring at WND’s request and concluded that the
first half of the Shahada is inscribed on it.
“There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is
no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs,
the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so
strongly attached,” Gabriel told WND. MorE>>>>>>>>>>

Read the story below - notice what can happen when one has dual citizenship (as Obama had).... then read the article below it, on the standing LEGAL ruling from an American court on the subject. These facts ARE NEVER mentioned by the media....
Little Jack Redmond, of Orland Park, Illinois, was put on a plane headed to Ireland to live with his father possibly for the rest of his childhood after international courts ruled against his mother in a drawn-out custody battle against her ex-boyfriend, who is Irish. Although the five-year-old boy was born in the U.S. and has spent nearly all of his young life in a Chicago suburb, he has dual citizenship, which means that he is subject to Irish laws.
What might the phrase “natural-born citizen” of the United States imply under the U.S. Constitution? The phrase has always been obscure due to the lack of any single authoritative source to confer in order to understand the condition of citizenship the phrase recognizes. Learning what the phrase might have meant following the Declaration of Independence, and the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment, requires detective work. As with all detective work, eliminating the usual suspects from the beginning goes a long way in quickly solving a case.
What Natural-Born Citizen Could Not Mean
Could a natural-born citizen simply mean citizenship due to place of birth?
Whatever might had been the correct understanding of “natural-born citizen” prior to 1866, the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment certainly changes the view because for the first time we have a written national rule declaring who are citizens through birth or naturalization. Who may be born citizens is conditional upon being born “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States - a condition not required under the common law. The legislative definition of “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” was defined as “Not owing allegiance to anybody else.”
This national rule prevents us from interpreting natural-born citizen under common law rules because it eliminates the possibility of a child being born with more than one allegiance.
Natural-Born Citizen Defined
One universal point most all early publicists agreed on was natural-born citizen must mean one who is a citizen by no act of law. If a person owes their citizenship to some act of law (naturalization for example), they cannot be considered a natural-born citizen. This leads us to defining natural-born citizen under the laws of nature - laws the founders recognized and embraced.
Under the laws of nature, every child born requires no act of law to establish the fact the child inherits through nature his/her father’s citizenship as well as his name (or even his property) through birth. This law of nature is also recognized by law of nations. Sen. Howard said the citizenship clause under the Fourteenth Amendment was by virtue of “natural law and national law.”
From reading all the material on the subject of natural born citizens I can’t help but conclude the following:
1) Citizens of united states was never properly defined by the framers mainly because only state law could define whom were born a citizen of the state which in return automatically made them a citizen of the united states under article 4.
2) Congress in 1866 recognized not all states recognized people of color as citizens and set out to define who were citizens of the united states through statute and amendment to the constitution.
3) Congress decided to recognize all persons born or naturalized as citizens of the united states as long as they could not be claimed as subjects of another country.
4) The 14th amendment was clearly designed to recognized only those politically attached to the nation (citizens) and no other.
5) Just as a naturalized citizen cannot be claimed by any other foreign power as their citizens, neither can anyone born.
Obama cannot be a citizen of the united states under the true meaning behind born or naturalized subject to the jurisdiction of the united states. Justice Gray himself confirmed this in Elk v Wilkins writing for the majority in defining subject to the jurisdiction as political attachment and not mere place of birth. This was in perfect agreement with acts of congress of 1866, 1868 and 1874.
This crazy notion that place of birth controls citizenship is so contrary to written law makes you wonder how so many got carried away with such an easily debunked belief.
This case concerned Mrs. Happersett, an original suffragette, who in virtue of the 14th Amendment attempted to register to vote in the State of Missouri, and was refused because she was not a man. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in that year, wrote the majority opinion, in which he stated:
The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents.
United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)
In this case, Wong Kim Ark, the son of 2 resident Chinese aliens, claimed U.S. Citizenship and was vindicated by the court on the basis of the 14th Amendment. In this case the Justice Gray gave the opinion of the court. On p. 168-9 of the record, He cites approvingly the decision in Minor vs. Happersett:
At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children, born in a country of parents who were its citizens, became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.
On the basis of the 14th Amendment, however, the majority opinion coined a new definition for “native citizen”, as anyone who was born in the U.S.A., under the jurisdiction of the United States. The Court gave a novel interpretation to jurisdiction, and thus extended citizenship to all born in the country (excepting those born of ambassadors and foreign armies etc.); but it did not extend the meaning of the term “natural born citizen.”
Finally it should be noted, that to define a term is to indicate the category or class of things which it signifies. In this sense, the Supreme Court of the United States has never applied the term “natural born citizen” to any other category than “those born in the country of parents who are citizens thereof”.
Hence every U.S. Citizen must accept this definition or categorical designation, and fulfil his constitutional duties accordingly. No member of Congress, no judge of the Federal Judiciary, no elected or appointed official in Federal or State government has the right to use any other definition; and if he does, he is acting unlawfully, because unconstitutionally.
The Obama Record: The discovery of the president's false book bio claiming Kenyan birth fits an increasingly disturbing pattern. We've long described Obama as radical, but he's also deceitful.
The mix of these two traits in the Oval Office is toxic. But the Washington media are anything but alarmed, still believing as they do the mythical savior figure they created in 2008.
The other night, MSNBC's Chris Matthews argued on his "Hardball" show that Americans would be wise to re-elect Obama because he's "the candidate we know." He claimed he's a trusted brand who "is who he seems to be."
He went on to describe the president as "a fairly pragmatic progressive" and "tough defender of the country." Therefore, he argued, he's the safer choice vs. GOP foe Mitt Romney, whom Matthews warns is an unknown commodity — "Brand X" — who could turn out to be a nutty puppet of the "radical right."

Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs says he’s mystified by an apparent “taboo” Republicans and the national media have as they continue to bury any question or news story probing the eligibility of Barack Obama to be president of the United States.
On Friday night’s edition of “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on the Fox Business Network, the veteran broadcaster was having a political discussion with National Research founder Adam Geller.
“Let me ask you a question,” Dobbs said to Geller. “Why aren’t the Republicans talking about what was all over Drudge which is from 1991 to 2007, a publisher’s document talking about him being born in Kenya? I mean, there’s like there’s a taboo about it. How did this wall come up around that?”
Image from Breitbart.com
“The straightforward answer is,” Geller said, “by the time this is all said and done, there will be some entity that probably talks about that. But the reality is, the independents, the people in the middle, they care about one thing and one thing only: fix this economy. And as a corollary to that, let’s create some real private-sector jobs.”
“I buy all of that except for one thing,” Dobbs responded. “I don’t know where the national media was in 2008. I don’t know where it is now.”
This is not the first time Dobbs has touched on the subject of Obama’s eligibility.
In fact, as WND previously reported, his refusal to drop “birther” stories about challenges to Obama’s constitutional eligibility was reportedly a major source of contention with CNN management, leading the unconventional anchor to walk away from the network and lucrative paycheck.
The New York Post, citing anonymous sources, said the beginning of the end of a long-simmering dispute came in July 2009, when CNN President Jonathan Klein told Dobbs’ staff in a memo to stop reporting on lawsuits that demand Obama produce evidence he’s a natural-born American citizen, as required by the Constitution.
“It seems this story is dead because anyone who still is not convinced doesn’t really have a legitimate beef,” Klein’s memo said.
A source told the Post Klein’s move incensed Dobbs.
“They have been talking pretty regularly since then,” the source said. “And it’s been pretty bad.”
A federal judge has determined in a case challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility for a state ballot that the meaning of the constitutional phrase “natural born citizen” is “important and not trivial.”
U.S. District Judge S. Thomas Anderson of Tennessee said the courts ultimately must define “natural born citizen,” affirming that the “issue of whether President Obama is constitutionally qualified to run for the presidency is certainly substantial.” MORE>>>>>>>>>>
ABC news recently reported that most Americans are cutting back on their vacation plans due to high gas prices and the lagging economy. But the Obamas seem to be oblivious to the issue.
The topic of the First Family’s frequent vacationing is one that a St. Louis TV anchor thought was worth investigating. Larry Conners of KMOV-TV wondered if the Obamas spend an inordinate amount of time vacationing at the expense of the American taxpayer?
This is not exactly a new topic:
The frequency and cost of these the Obama family trips has been covered on the Blaze as recently as December when the First Family’s Hawaiian vacation was reported to cost as much as $4 million dollars.
Last summer the Daily Mail reported that Michelle Obama had already spent up to $10 million dollars on trips to Spain, Vail, and Martha’s Vineyard.
Potential jurors reporting for jury duty in the D.C. Superior Court building have of late been passing a photo exhibit celebrating renowned black women in a series of posters, each featuring portraits of trailblazers exemplifying greatness in their respective fields.
Included among the posters, hung for Black History Month on the walls outside the jurors’ lounge, is one in which the D.C. courts — the federally funded judicial branch of the D.C. government — honor eight “Black Women Paving the Way to Greatness in Politics.”
One of these personifications of “greatness,” however, comes as a shock, especially in the context of a court of law. It is none other than Angela Davis, a black activist who came to prominence in the 1960s as a leader of the Communist Party U.S.A. and the radical black group the Black Panther Party. Ms. Davis was such a high profile communist in the latter days of the Cold War that she was awarded the so-called “Lenin Peace Prize,” given to her in a Moscow ceremony by Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev himself.
Of course, Ms. Davis, too, was a trailblazer in her own way.
A poster hanging on the wall in the D.C. Superior Court building in Washington, D.C. shows “Black Women Paving the Way to Greatness in Politics.” It curiously includes Ms. Davis. (The Washington Times)
She was the second black woman to make the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list. She earned that distinction as a fugitive wanted on murder and kidnapping charges stemming from her role in a notorious attack on a courtroom in Marin County in California.
On Aug. 7, 1970, a black 17-year-old named Jonathan Jackson, toting a small arsenal of guns, entered the courtroom of Judge Harold Haley, where convict James McClain was facing murder charges in the death of a prison guard. Brandishing a gun, Jackson halted the proceedings and then armed McClain, after which they together armed two other convicts, who’d been called as witnesses in the case. Jackson and the three freed prisoners then took Judge Haley, the prosecutor and three female jurors hostage, bargaining chips in their effort to force the release from prison of older brother George Jackson, an armed robber who also was under indictment on murder charges in the death of another prison guard.
A career criminal turned Black Panther prison organizer, George Jackson was the author of “Soledad Brother,” a collection of his militant prison letters. The abductors fled with their hostages — Judge Haley now with a sawed-off shotgun taped under his chin, the others bound with piano wire — in a waiting van. They didn’t get far before reaching a police roadblock, where a shootout erupted, leaving Judge Haley, Jonathan Jackson and two other kidnappers dead, the prosecutor paralyzed for life and a juror wounded.
It was quickly established that Angela Davis had purchased at least two of the guns used in the deadly attack, including the shotgun that killed Judge Haley, which she had bought two days earlier and which was then sawed off. California law considered anyone complicit in commission of a crime a principal. As a result, Marin County Superior Judge Peter Smith charged Ms. Davis with “aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder” and issued an arrest warrant for her. Instead of surrendering for trial, Ms. Davis went into hiding. She was captured by the FBI almost three months later at a Howard Johnson motel on 10th Avenue in the heart of New York City.
Ms. Davis claimed that she was innocent, and her case became a cause celebre, as the international communist movement bankrolled her defense and organized a worldwide movement to “Free Angela.” Eventually, she was acquitted in 1972, despite her proven ownership of the murder weapons and a cache of letters she wrote to George Jackson in prison expressing her passionate romantic feelings for him and unambivalent solidarity with his commitment to political violence.
As in the O.J. Simpson trial, however, many remained convinced of the defendant’s guilt despite the jury’s verdict. Ms. Davis was acquitted, wrote author and ex-radical David Horowitz for his Front Page website, “in part because of the difficulty the prosecution had in establishing in court the real connections between Davis and Jackson, and in part because the jury was stacked with political sympathizers like Mary Timothy, an anti-Vietnam [War] activist,” who, according to Mr. Horowitz, would later become the “love interest” of Bettina Aptheker, a prominent Communist Party activist and organizer of the National United Committee to Free Angela Davis and All Political Prisoners.
There is a further irony in the homage to Ms. Davis‘ “greatness” displayed for jurors in the D.C. Courthouse, the scene of people tried for actual crimes who might go to prison: Ms. Davis is these days a driving force in the prison-abolition movement and founder of a group called Critical Resistance, which is dedicated to smashing what she calls “the prison-industrial complex.”
Ms. Davis holds that any black serving a prison sentence in the United States is in reality a “political prisoner,” whatever offense they may have committed. In her lexicon, those convicted are only victims of “masked racism.” As she wrote in 1998, the poverty in which blacks are “ensconced” causes them to be “grouped together under the category ‘crime’ and by the automatic attribution of criminal behavior to people of color.” The purpose of prison, in her eyes, is simply to “disappear” people who come from “poor, immigrant and racially marginalized communities.”
Ms. Davis imputes to the American ruling class what she terms “racial assumptions of criminality,” which enable the nation to lock up the innocent under a veneer of legality and “disappear the major social problems of our time.” As she explains, most people “have been tricked into believing in the efficacy of imprisonment,” even though “prisons do not work.” Ms. Davis envisions linking her struggle against this “complex” with other “strands of resistance” to build a new “powerful movement for social transformation.”
In the D.C. Courthouse, as juror selection takes place, lawyers for both sides daily strive to winnow out even subtle biases that could impinge on a jury’s impartial hearing of trial evidence. With her blanket dismissal of evidence as irrelevant in trials of (automatically innocent) minority defendants, Ms. Davis indicts the entire American legal system as a rigged farce.
I first wrote this back in 2009, as I seem to be the only one in America, at the time who was alarmed when I read that Angela Davis was a visitor to the White House, so I am replaying this story, please note the story above where all of a sudden we see the media finally noticing her again, this time with Michelle Obama. This woman is a Communist, racist, and charged murderer- who literally makes Bill Ayres look like a boy scout!

Another name that has surfaced on the White House list of visitors, seems to have gone unnoticed by most. The name that I recognized right away was that of Angela Davis. In my generation Angela Davis was a black radical communist, whose anti-American rhetoric was well known back in the early 1970s. Born in 1944, the black activist ran for vice president in the Communist Party. Yes, you read that correctly, the Communist Party of America. Yet another communist among the inner circle of Barack Obama. She was arrested and found innocent of the murder of Judge Harold Haley, in California. A radical past includes violence in every un-American activity one can imagine. She was much more visible in the 1970s then William Ayers, and just as dangerous. Now she is granted a White House visit. The White House claims that most of the names released on their list of visitors are not the famous people, or should I say the infamous people that they appear to be.
In 1970, a California judge, Judge Haley was abducted from his courthouse and murdered in an attempt to free communist prisoners. The shotgun that was used to kill the judge was purchased in Angela Davis's name, many believing she personally bought the gun. She was charged as an accomplice to murder and became only the third woman in the nation's history to make the FBI's 10 most wanted list! Yes, the 10 most wanted list! This is just another friend of Barack Obama, visiting the White House.
Angela Davis was introduced to communism in college, became a professor at UCLA in 1969 and became a spokesman for causes such as the Communist Party and the Black Panther movement. Gov. Ronald Reagan fired her from her job. She also won the Lenin peace prize in the 1980s, named after the famous Russian Communist Lenin.
A little known fact about Davis is that she supported Jim Jones' Peoples Temple in San Francisco back in the 1970s. Most do not realize that Jim Jones was a founder of the "black liberation theology movement," made famous now by the Rev. Wright. Yes the dots all do seem to connect, all of these evil, murderous persons are all interconnected, and have relationships with our president: Barack Obama!
Wikipedia claims, "In a New York City speech on July 9, 1975, Russian dissident and Nobel Laureate Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn told an AFL-CIO meeting that Davis was derelict in supporting various socialist projects around the world, given her stark opposition to the U.S. prison system. In particular, Solzhenitsyn claimed that a group of Czech prisoners appealed to Davis for support, which he further said she refused to offer. In a speech at East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania, Davis denied Solzhenitsyn's claim."
Davis, Malik Zulu Shabazz (modern leader of the Black Panthers) and a host of other communist and anti-American radicals appear to have visited the White House in the last nine months. Answer this question, if George Bush were to have Ku Klux Klan members visiting the White House during his stay as president, would there be a national outcry? Be honest, because we all know the truth,The Plain Truth to that question.
There are those who dislike Obama's policies and just want him out of office. There are those who like the socialism he's been working to install in the U.S. and probably will vote for him again. And there are those who have done some research and say the simple logic of the facts regarding Obama confirms he's not eligible under the Constitution's requirements for a person to be president.
But the concept of a constitionally qualified "natural born citizen," when it's been used interchangeably with so many other words like "citizen" and "native-born citizen," remains an enigma to some.
Now comes a constitutional scholar to put it in simple phrases and make it clear.
The evaluation of the meaning of "natural born citizen" in the Constitution comes from Dr. Herbert W. Titus, of counsel to the law firm William J. Olson.
He previously taught constitutional law, common law and other subjects for 30 years at five different American Bar Association-approved law schools. From 1986 to 1993 he was the founding dean of the College of Law and Government at Regent University.
And before that, he was a trial attorney and special assistant U.S. attorney with the Department of Justice.
