Obama Admin Seeks Gitmo Release of Terrorist who Killed US Soldier
by AWR Hawkins
In October 2010, Canadian Omar Khadr was convicted of using a grenade to
kill a U.S. soldier. In May 2012, President Barack Obama and/or members of
his administration are fighting for Khadr's freedom.
That's right-although Khadr was found guilty of killing US Army medic Sgt.
Christopher Speer and sentenced to 40 years by a military jury, there is a
deal in the works to transfer him to Canada where his prison sentence can be
cut drastically. And the Obama administration is pushing the deal.

Another lie off the Breitbart site. Stop spamming your d*mned propaganda, or at LEAST verify the accuracy.

The Obama Administration is NOT "PUSHING THE DEAL". Period. The Canadian Government (did you get that?) is requesting that he be transferred to THEIR custody. He pled guilty in a PLEA BARGAIN that provided an 8 YEAR SENTENCE with no credit for time served and ONE YEAR of that sentence was to be spent in U.S. custody. That was done. His Canadian lawyers now want him transferred:

Omar Khadr: Peace-loving Canadian or al-Qaeda royalty?

"Days ago, his lawyers filed a notice of application seeking to ask the Federal Court to review the federal government's failure to ask the U.S. to transfer Khadr to Canadian custody."

Canada is our ally. Do you have any question about our relationship with Canada and the cooperation between the two countries? If we strike a deal, it's expected that we'll honor it. This has absolutely nothing to do with your President. It's a lie, one among many you've posted here.

No kidding, that's why the story about the video being the sole impetus for the attack is inane. This was a planned attack meant to make a statement on 9/11. Why won't BO just admist it? Why is he so afraid to utter the words, "terrorist attack"? It is what it is.

I agree. It was too much of a coincidence for these Libyan terrorists to murder four Americans on Sept 11.

WHO in their right mind could give Sarah Palin any credibility? She waves at Russia from her veranda and shoots elk from a helicopter. What a sport! She thinks Africa is a country. She's good looking (a plus) and went through three different colleges in order to get a degree. Why wouldn't Charlie Gibson challenge her? After all, he's worked with smart women throughout his career. Sarah Palin isn't one. She was in way over her head. She can be the Queen of Wasilla, AK, but a heartbeat away from the presidency is one incredibly scary thought. She makes Joe Biden look absolutely brilliant;-)

Charles Gibson Interviews of Obama & Palin
Obama interview [transcript]:

Who will be your VP?
Should you choose Hillary Clinton as VP?
Will you accept public finance?

Will you visit Iraq?
Will you debate McCain at a town hall?
What did you think of your competitor's [Clinton] speech?
Palin interview [transcript]:
Do you have enough qualifications for the job you're seeking? Specifically
have you visited foreign countries and met foreign leaders?
Aren't you conceited to be seeking this high level job?
Questions about foreign policy
-territorial integrity of Georgia
-allowing Georgia and Ukraine to be members of NATO
-NATO treaty
-Iranian nuclear threat
-what to do if Israel attacks Iran
-Al Qaeda motivations
-the Bush Doctrine
-attacking terrorists harbored by Pakistan
Is America fighting a holy war?[misquoted Palin]
There's no doubt the Charles Gibson interviews showed extreme prejudice
against Palin and extreme favoritism towards Obama.He constantly questioned
her ability to lead but never questioned Obama's ability to lead, all the
more amazing considering that Palin was the only one with executive
experience and the presidency is the highest level executive job in
politics.

Rachel Maddow: Frequent White House Visitor
By Alexander Abad-Santos | The Atlantic Wire
A look at visitor logs from The White House has MSNBC's star being cleared
to enter The White House seven times and meeting with Obama face-to-face
three of those times--a number on par with King Abdullah of Jordan. That's
what the conservative-leaning Neil Munro at the conservative-leaning Daily
Caller reports.(Munro's piece doesn't state the specificities of how far
back he looked at the logs--it looks as though the visits are all from this
past year.) He concludes, "Rachel Maddow is the president's favorite media
hack." Sure, the piece gives reasons as to why Maddow's visits are out of
the ordinary (her ratings aren't as good as Fox's) and insinuates that The
President is being wasteful with his time (King Abdullah has the same amount
of visits), and that her visits mean that she's more better liked than
Arianna Huffington and Fareed Zakaria--all of which are subjective
conclusions which are arguably all up for debate.

Stimulus money in the billions that Republicans states accepted and

the interest on the money adding to the debt every day.
Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go?

It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions --
including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees
across the country.

It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying
union dues.

It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama
almost $1 million in contributions).

A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union
dues).

All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their
bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America .

The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama,
the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful.
The ends justify the means.

Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators.
Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute
the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it
(except vote for Obama).

Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Barack Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.

With the acts outlined above,

Barack Hussein Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly
expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast
privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a
government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as
socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.

Recovery.gov Shows Taxpayer Money Going to Congressional Districts That Don't
Exist
The 86th congressional district of Rhode Island received $10.2 million in
federal economic stimulus funds to save 57.9 jobs, according to
Recovery.gov .

( CNSNews.com )- The 86th congressional district of Rhode Island received
$10.2 million in federal economic stimulus funds to save 57.9 jobs,
according to Recovery.gov . In neighboring Connecticut, the state's 42nd
congressional district did not receive any stimulus money yet 25 jobs were
still saved or created.

The problem with these federal financial data, however, is that Rhode Island
has just two congressional districts, not 86, and Connecticut has just five
U.S. House seats, not 42. Also, the Web site states that $6.4 billion in
stimulus money went to 440 congressional districts that do not exist,
according to an analysis first reported by Watchdog.org , a division of the
Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity.

Audit:$111M In Stimulus Funds Leads To Only 55 LA City Jobs

"I'm disappointed,'' said City Controller Wendy Greuel, whose office
conducted both audits. "While it doesn't appear that the ARRA (American

Biden:'Framers Intended to Grant Congress Power to Initiate All Hostilities, Even Limited Wars'

( CNSNews.com )- After studying the constitutional language governing the use
of military force and the debates that the Framers had on the issue, Joe
Biden determined that the Founding Fathers had vested the power to authorize
even the limited use of military force in the Congress not the
president---unless it was necessary for the president to act swiftly to
repel an attack on the United States or to rescue U.S. citizens.

Biden derided the opposite position-that the president could use military
force without congressional authorization-as a "monarchist" view of
presidential power.

That was in 1998, however, when Biden was in the Senate.

Today, Biden serves as vice president to a commander in chief who has just
committed the U.S. military to an action in Libya that was authorized by the
U.N. Security Council but was never even so much as debated in the U.S.
Congress let alone put to a vote.

Nor has the president argued that the aim of the military action in Libya is
to repel an imminent attack on the United States or rescue U.S. citizens.

Biden's Cozy Relations With Bank Industry

With Sen. Joe Biden joining [1] the Democratic ticket, there's renewed
scrutiny of Biden's connections to the credit card industry. Biden has been
particularly cozy with MBNA, a financial services company from Delaware, and
now a subsidiary of Bank of America.

Over the past 20 years, MBNA has been Biden's single largest contributor
[2]. And as the New York Times [3] and Wall Street Journal [4] note, Biden's
son Hunter was hired out of law school by MBNA and later worked as a
lobbyist for the company.

The Times also details just how helpful Biden has been to MBNA and the
credit card industry. The senator was a key supporter of an
industry-favorite bill [5]-the "Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer
Protection Act of 2005"-that actually made it harder for consumers to get
protection under bankruptcy.

Joe asks for 6 months of retraining for 'Cattle Guards'!

Email:

For those of you who have never traveled to the west, or southwest,
cattle guards are horizontal steel rails placed at fence openings,
in dug-out places in the roads adjacent to highways (sometimes across
highways), to prevent cattle from crossing over that area. For some reason
the cattle will not step on the "guards," probably because they fear getting
their feet caught between the rails.

A few months ago, President Obama received and was reading a report that
there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado . The Colorado ranchers
had protested his proposed changes in grazing policies, so he ordered the
Secretary of the Interior to fire half of the "cattle" guards immediately!
Before the Secretary of the Interior could respond and presumably try to
straighten President Obama out on the matter, Vice-President Joe Biden,
intervened with a request that...before any "cattle" guards were fired, they
be given six months of retraining.

'Times are hard', said Joe Biden,'it's only fair to the cattle guards and
their families!'

And these two guys are running our country,

OH LORD HELP US !!

Fox News on top: Cable net celebrates 10 years at #1 in ratings
By Dylan Stableford | The Cutline - 14 hrs ago
Last fall, Fox News celebrated its 15th anniversary with a lavish party in
New York. Fox News president Roger Ailes, who launched the channel in 1996,
toasted 700 or so staffers that night, telling them, "Losing is highly
overrated as a learning experience."
On Tuesday afternoon, when Nielsen releases its final ratings for the month
of January, the "fair and balanced" network will mark an arguably more
important milestone: 10 consecutive years at the top of the cable news
rankings.
Yahoo News recently spoke will Bill Shine, Fox News Channel's EVP of
programming, about the significance of the achievement, the state of cable
news, and how the cable network has managed to sustain its pole position
while defending Fox from its fervent critics, including Jon Stewart.
Yahoo News: So, are you going to frame the Nielsen report?
Shine: No, no. We don't do a lot of that around here. We may pat each other
on the back, but the news goes on. We'll keep it rolling.
What's been the key to maintaining your no. 1 position in cable news?
A couple of things. Roger's leadership. He had the idea, he launched the
network, he hired the talent. So it's been Roger, Roger's vision. Over the
years we've gained the trust of the American people. And Roger picked good
people, not just on-air, but the producers and everyone behind the scenes
who have contributed to our success.
