The Thirteen Colonies were British colonies on the Atlantic coast of North America,  which declared their independence in the American Revolution and formed the United States.  The colonies, whose territory ranged from what is now Maine (then part of the Province of Massachusetts Bay) to the north and Georgia to the south, were Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire,  Virginia, New York, North Carolina, and Rhode Island.   At the time of the Revolution, these colonies contained territory now outside of the borders of the modern states.

Though the concept of “Thirteen Colonies” is firmly enshrined in American culture following the Revolution, through the war the colonies’ relations with each other and with the other British colonies in North America were fluid. By mid-1775 only twelve of these colonies had taken any formal steps towards revolution; Georgia, the newest of the thirteen, did not participate in the First Continental Congress and initially did not send delegates to the Second.  The other British colonies (in the British West Indies,  what is now Canada, and the Floridas)  all remained officially loyal to the crown through the war, but several expressed some level of sympathy with the Patriot cause.  However, their geographical isolation and the dominance of British naval power precluded any effective participation.

Facts of the Thirteen Colonies

Connecticut:  5th to become a state 1788; settled by Puritans from Massachusetts; state laws were model for US Constitution; nickname is Constitution State

Delaware:  1st state 12-7-1787; Delaware’s Blue Hen army (named for their leader’s pet fighting Blue Hen rooster) turned away advancing British in initial skirmish with great speed and bravery; the 13-star flag was flown in battle here first

Georgia:  Last colony settled but was 4th to ratify Constitution and become state; named after King George II

Maryland:  Named for Queen Henrietta Maria of England; Known for its valiant army; statehood 4-28-1788; part of state became Washington D C

Massachusetts:  Plymouth Rock home; became a state 2-6-1788; once had a carved wooden codfish on the wall of the State House because codfish were a big state industry

New Hampshire:  Named for Hampshire County in England; became state 6-21-1788; was heavily explored by both French and English

New Jersey:  Land was given to the Governor of the Isle of Jersey in the English Channel for this colony; it would be the site of over 100 battles and skirmishes before the Revolution ended

New York:  Named for the Duke of York (brother of King Charles II); statehood 7-26-1788; US Congress met here after Revolution

North Carolina:  Home of Roanoke Island’s Lost Colony; first child born in America was John White’s granddaughter Virginia on 8-18-1587; statehood 11-21-1789

Pennsylvania:  Means Penn’s Woods, named for William Penn; nickname Keystone State because it is the center of the arch of thirteen colonies; 2nd state 12-12-1787; settled by various religious groups who greatly enhanced colonial life with inventions such as the Conestoga Wagon.

Rhode Island:  Smallest colony and state; not an island, was maybe named for Isle of Rhodes in Aegean Sea; 1st declare independence from England but last of thirteen to become a state because of concerns over being fairly represented in spite of size

South Carolina:  Once part of “Carolana” with NC; nickname Palmetto State because fortress of palms kept British warship away from Charleston harbor in 1776 battle; statehood 5-23-1778

Virginia:  Home to four of the first five US presidents, and eventually home to four more; site of 1st permanent settlement in Jamestown 1607.

Morning everyone – I hope every one had a great day yesterday at your local tea parties. I know that I did and I am hoping that I made a difference to the young man who stopped me to ask what was going on (comment on previous thread).

Don’t laugh when you see this old lady on the local news video. I’m not quite as young and beautiful as Katie and j.b.

The other home returned the meds on Wed and did not even have the decency to call me to come and get them. So I have to get to her Dr first thing and get him to give me a prescription for 30 days and pay for it myself since Medicare won’t pay for it again. P*SSed Off – you have NO idea how mad I am.

I love this new thread topic! Makes me so proud to read again where this great nation planted it’s roots. Those were the days when my NYS was actually a patriotic participant. Well sort of. I think they were very reluctant on alot of the issues going against the British. but they did eventually and helped to start the nation growing.

Now to my big rant of the morning. How does everyone like what the wanna be-King had to say yesterday about us? Alisky 101. Use ridicule to attack the opponent. He did it perfectly yesterday. We Tea Party members “amuse him”!!!!! Now how’s that sitting with everyone? What an incredible a$$ he is, but he continues to recieve support and adulation from sooo many clueless Americans. From his seat high in the clouds he looks down on his subjects and proclaims: “They amuse me. They should be thanking me.” My goodness this man is annoying beyond belief. He needs to resign, be impeached or voted out in 2012. I have never heard such arrogance in my life. Who the H*** does he think he is? Again I say, Alinsky 101 because he knows this movement is growing, is voting and they can’t stand him or his policies. He’s right.

GOP Senator threatens Obama administration with subpoenas
From CNN’s Political ticker:

April 15, 2010
Washington (CNN) – A top GOP Senator promised Thursday to subpoena the Obama administration if they fail to provide information sought in a Congressional investigation into last November’s mass shooting at Fort Hood.

Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the ranking Republican on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said the Obama administration is “stonewalling” their investigation.

Both Collins and Sen. Joe Lieberman, the chairman of the committee, have been trying since November to obtain information from the Justice and Defense Departments about the shooting rampage, in which Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 people.

Democrats dismiss Tea Party activists

It never ends; does it?

April 15, 2010

Washington (CNN) – As Tea Party activists mounted protests in Washington and announced a list of Congressional Democrats they’re targeting for defeat in November, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed the group’s impact on Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections and argued the Tea Party could hurt Republicans.

“I think it’s going to have an impact on Republicans in November. We always just keep our eye on the ball as to what our own races are and keep going in a forward direction,” Pelosi said Thursday.

Pelosi explained that Republicans could suffer is because Tea Party activists are promoting conservative challenges to GOP candidates in their primaries.

While the speaker said she welcomes “any and all voices of the American people,” she said that Democrats have the message and the money to prevail in November.

Our message about health care, about job creation, about fiscal responsibility, about lowering taxes for the middle class, about stabilizing the economy,” she said. “We believe will hold us in good stead.”.

Liberal “Never Mind” Moment: Waxman Cancels CEO Hearings About Healthcare Costs

Caught in an “Oh, never mind” moment, Rep. Waxman cancelled the supposed grilling of the CEO’s of Corporations stating that the Healthcare bill recently passed and signed into law WILL cost them MILLIONS.

April 14, 2010

Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman, D-Calif., has canceled a hearing intended to grill CEOs who took a charge against profits because of the health care reform bill.

The cancellation came after they realized what everyone already knew – that the companies were required to do what they did because of accounting rules. Waxman and others had reacted with outrage and accused the companies of doing it – in essence, to make health care reform look bad.

AT&T took a $1 billion charge and other companies including Caterpillar, John Deere, and Valero Energy, and 3M took hundreds of millions in charges because of the health care reforms.

From The Obama File

Howard Kurtz says the White House ripped CBS News on Thursday for publishing an online column by a blogger who made assertions about the sexual orientation of Solicitor General Elena Kagan, widely viewed as a leading candidate for the Supreme Court.

Ben Domenech, a former Bush administration aide and Republican Senate staffer, wrote that Obama would “please” much of his base by picking the “first openly gay justice.” An administration official, who asked not to be identified discussing personal matters, said Kagan is not a lesbian.

CBS initially refused to pull the posting, prompting Anita Dunn, a former White House communications director who is working with the administration on the high court vacancy, to say: “The fact that they’ve chosen to become enablers of people posting lies on their site tells us where the journalistic standards of CBS are in 2010.” She said the network was giving a platform to a blogger “with a history of plagiarism” who was “applying old stereotypes to single women with successful careers.”

The network deleted the posting Thursday night after Domenech said he was merely repeating a rumor. The flare-up underscores how quickly the battle over a Supreme Court nominee — or even a potential nominee — can turn searingly personal. Most major news organizations have policies against “outing” gays or reporting on the sex lives of public officials unless they are related to their public duties.

A White House spokesman, Ben LaBolt, said he complained to CBS because the column “made false charges.” Domenech later added an update to the post: “I have to correct my text here to say that Kagan is apparently still closeted — odd, because her female partner is rather well known in Harvard circles.”

Exactly what we should strive for in our institutions of higher learning — a FAIR EDUCATION — we have allowed every aspect of our educational system to be dumbed down because of people who are dumb and dumber. We need to raise the bar and strive for excellence not mediocrity and stop rewarding people for just getting by. We need to abolish the worthless Department of Education!
Professor removed for tough grading
Thomas Lifson

Grade inflation appears to have become policy at Louisiana State University, where Professor Dominique G. Homberger was removed from teaching an introductory biology course for giving tough grades. USA Today reports that the professor

… gives brief quizzes at the beginning of every class, to assure attendance and to make sure students are doing the reading. On her tests, she doesn’t use a curve, as she believes that students must achieve mastery of the subject matter, not just achieve more mastery than the worst students in the course. For multiple choice questions, she gives 10 possible answers, not the expected 4, as she doesn’t want students to get very far with guessing.

Kevin Carman, dean of the College of Basic Sciences, issued a statement, including:

“The class in question is an entry-level biology class for non-science majors, and, at mid-term, more than 90% of the students in Dr. Homberger’s class were failing or had dropped the class. The extreme nature of the grading raised a concern, and we felt it was important to take some action to ensure that our students receive a rigorous, but fair, education. Professor Homberger is not being penalized in any way; her salary has not been decreased nor has any aspect of her appointment been changed.”

Bill Clinton Ties to Tea Party to Oklahoma City Bombing…

Using the Oklahoma City tragedy for political purposes in reprehensible beyond belief…

With the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing approaching, former President Bill Clinton on Thursday drew parallels between the antigovernment tone that preceded that devastating attack and the political tumult of today, saying government critics must be mindful that angry words can stir violent actions.

In advance of a symposium on Friday about the attack on the Oklahoma City federal building and its current relevance, Mr. Clinton, who was in his first term at the time of the bombing, warned that attempts to incite opposition by demonizing the government can provoke responses beyond what political figures intend.

“There can be real consequences when what you say animates people who do things you would never do,” Mr. Clinton said in an interview, saying that Timothy McVeigh, who carried out the Oklahoma City bombing, and those who assisted him, “were profoundly alienated, disconnected people who bought into this militant antigovernment line.”

Oh Brother… Dem Rep Changes Story: I Didn’t Hear “N*gger” I Heard “F*ggot”
Friday, April 16, 2010, 5:47 AM
Jim Hoft
Whatever he heard Rep. Heath Shuler swears it came from those foul-mouthed, church-going, tax-paying, US flag-toting tea party patriots who assembled in Washington DC to protest the Democrats takeover of the US health care industry.

Heath Shuler now says it wasn’t the n-word he heard, it was fagg*t.
Whatever, Heath.
Blue Ridge Now reported:

U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler is distancing himself from comments he made to the Times-News last month, stating he heard racial slurs yelled from a crowd of angry health care protesters outside the U.S. Capitol.

On March 20, black Democratic congressmen John Lewis, Andre Carson and Emanuel Cleaver said they heard the N-word as they walked to the Capitol to vote on health care. Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., who is gay, said anti-homosexual epithets were yelled at him.

At that time, Shuler told the Times-News he was walking toward the Capitol with Cleaver when protesters began yelling racial epithets at Cleaver.

On Wednesday, Shuler told The Associated Press that he heard slurs against Frank, but not Cleaver.

And of course API long time before anyone ever heard of Korir.

I posted Korir articles at HCF long before he ever made his claim about Michelle Obama tape.

So I’m wondering how they’re all doing.

I never fully agreed with any of these bloggers, even though I considered them friends.

I’ve always had to be my own person.

But I do maintain we were right.

Whatever powers we were fighting against to prevent Obama from assuming power.

The President came down here in his campaign and told these 15,000 workers here at the Space Center that if they would vote for him, that he would protect their jobs. 9,000 of them are about to lose their job. He is speaking before 200, extra hundred people here today only. It’s invitation only. He has not invited a single space worker from this space port to attend.

    Friday, April 16, 2010 6:02 PM EDT
    Actor Danny Glover and 11 others have been arrested during a labor union protest at the Maryland headquarters of a food service company.

    Montgomery County police spokesman Capt. Paul Starks says Glover and others stepped past yellow police tape and were asked to step back three times at Sodexo headquarters. When they refused, Starks says officers arrested them.

    The dozen were issued citations for trespassing and let go. Starks says they face a $1,000 fine or 90 days in jail.

    Starks says organizers told police beforehand that some would risk arrest.

    The Service Employees International Union was protesting what it calls Sodexo’s unfair and illegal treatment of workers. Sodexo says the union was spreading misinformation.

    A publicist for the “Lethal Weapon” actor declined to comment.

    Just finished watching the Invisible Empire vidoe. Very interesting and very scary. I’m not sure I buy all of it, but even if only some is truth it is frightening to contemplate. At the end, the narrator suggests we wake up and do something to stop all this nwo agenda, but doesn’t give any suggestions how to accomplish that. If all propsed Pres. candidates and other candidates for national office are in the ‘club’ what the heck can we do I wonder.

    Honestly, I’m more confused than ever. I think I am on information overload. Too much reading and not enough clear, truthful and simple resoulutions to any of these huge problems facing all of us. I only care about making things better for my kids and grandkids, but right now I don’t know exactly what to do. Well, tomorrow is another day. Maybe something good will appear to make the picture clearer. Trust the Lord is probably the simplest solution anyway.

    Speaking of God, anybody think we are being sent a message via all the rumblings happening across Mother Earth these days? Earthquakes all over, volcano disrupting transportation over a wide area of Europe and a meteor big enough to light up the sky in the mid-west of the US. Maybe we need to up our prayer levels and do more of the right things down here. Yikes!

    CJ – It is all starting to get a little scary but of course those who know the Bible know what it says and we really need not fear if you are right with God.

    You are never alone at Heyokatroy’s! That’s just not right…We have to come up with a new name for the gang. So the challenge has been laid down.

    I watched Invisible Empire last night. It is perhaps the best video I’ve seen that clearly shows what we are fighting against without a bunch of hype. Hard to dispute the well documented presentation. I know there is a lot it doesn’t cover (Luciferians, child abductions, weather warfare, food control, Ashkenazi, Black Pope, NLP, brainwashing/brain soiling & such) but it covers an enormous amount in just 2 hours.

    Oh, btw, hi gang!

    Obama’s Nuclear Posturing, Part Deux
    By Charles Krauthammer

    WASHINGTON — There was something oddly disproportionate about the just-concluded nuclear summit to which President Obama summoned 46 world leaders, the largest such gathering on American soil since 1945. That meeting was about the founding of the United Nations, which 65 years ago seemed an event of world-historical importance.

    But this one? What was this great convocation about? To prevent the spread of nuclear material into the hands of terrorists. A worthy goal, no doubt. Unfortunately, the two greatest such threats were not even on the agenda.

    The first is Iran, which is frantically enriching uranium to make a bomb, and which our own State Department identifies as the greatest exporter of terrorism in the world.

    Nor on the agenda was Pakistan’s plutonium production, which is adding to the world’s stockpile of fissile material every day.

    Pakistan is a relatively friendly power, but it is the most unstable of all the nuclear states. It is fighting a Taliban insurgency and is home to al-Qaeda. Suicide bombs go off regularly in its major cities. Moreover, its own secret service, the ISI, is of dubious loyalty, some of its elements being sympathetic to the Taliban and thus, by extension, to al-Qaeda.

    So what was the major breakthrough announced by Obama at the end of the two-day conference? That Ukraine, Chile, Mexico and Canada will be getting rid of various amounts of enriched uranium.

    Hi folks! Good thing I’m a talented lurker or I’d have missed the move. It makes sense to not call the blog Rosettasister since she isn’t here (much) any more. Hope you don’t mind me snooping in.

    BTW, the Restore America folks are rumored to say that we should expect some media level stuff next week. Don’t know what that means. I see little glimmers of optimism but nothing to call real so far.

    I’ve been reading a lot on the history behind all this and it’s chilling. This country is in BIG trouble, but the gang already knows that of course.

    I hope they, or Tenacity’s efforts will yield success, or anyone for that matter. We’re headed for big trouble.

  31. jrinNC says:

    Morning jrh – yes, Troy and I decided to do our own blog. We like it. We are going to be changing the name here in a few days – Troy will post a day or so before we make the change so everyone gets it.

    Wow – I take a night off and look what happens! Thank you Rose for letting the party continue…thanks to jr and Troy, the kids have grown up enough to move out on their own.

    I looked at the meaning of heyoka – saw this in the definition.

    “A unique example is the famous Heyókȟa sacred clown called “the Straighten-Outer”

    I vote for StraightenOuter. :-)

    Out again most of the day. We’re off to help launch a new Tea Party group in our county.

    Thanks again Troy and jr for taking the lead to keep us all in the family!

    Morning Katie – Looks like you have another exciting day planned.

    Good luck to you in your endeavors today.

    Computer simulations of the eruption indicate that the interaction could have produced a plume from 25 to >50 km high, carrying from 50 to 100 km3 of vaporized seawater into the atmosphere. Although most of the vapor condenses and falls out from low altitudes, still large quantities are lofted into the stratosphere, forming ice clouds with super fine (<10 micrometer) hydrovolcanic ash. Discussions with global climate modelers at Los Alamos National Laboratory led me to preliminary calculations that such a plume of ash and ice crystals could form a significant cloud layer over much of the northern and southern hemispheres. Orders of magnitude larger than previously studied volcanic plumes, its dissipation and impact upon global albedo, the tropopause height, and stratospheric ozone are unknown but certainly within possibilities for climate destabilization lasting years or perhaps several decades. If this volcanic hypothesis is correct, the global, domino-like effects upon epidemics, agriculture, politics, economics, and religion are far-reaching, elevating the potential role of volcanism as a major climate control, and demonstrating the intimate link between human affairs and nature.

  36. ryansgrammy says:

    Fernley — I remember watching programs on the super volcano under Yellowstone and comments about its eruption. Scientists said that when (not if) this super volcano goes, it could block out sunlight around the world for 40 years. Probably what happened over 650,000 years ago when it erupted. Pretty scary scenario, especially because its just a matter of time before it plays out and its already overdue. :(

    Got this story in an email — bbl

    24-Hour Party People
    by David Harsanyi
    Yesterday I waded into a mass of tea party protesters gathered at the front of Colorado’s Capitol and completely forgot to brace myself for a “small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht” (as New York Times columnist Frank Rich once characterized these events).

    As it turns out, earlier I happened to peruse a new CBS/New York Times poll detailing the attitudes of tea party activists, who, it turns out, are more educated than the average American, more reflective of mainstream anxieties than any populist movement in memory and more closely aligned philosophically with the wider electorate than any big-city newsroom in America.

    What seemed to be the biggest news derived from the poll nationally? A plurality of tea party activists do not deem Sarah Palin qualified for the presidency — proving, I suppose, that some people have the ability to be exceptionally fond of a political celebrity without elevating her to sainthood.

    More significantly, the polling showed that most tea party activists believe the taxes they pay are “fair.” The largest number of them want their movement to work to reduce the size of government rather than focus on cutting budget deficits or lowering taxes. Whether you concur or not with this viewpoint, it exhibits more economic sophistication than we often hear from pandering senatorial candidates.

  38. CJ says:

    Loved that email Grammy. We all know what we tea partiers are made of. Maybe someday the LSM will have to admit it too. And I don’t think any of us will be intimidated by any Dem(dimwit) presidents–past or present–who try to diminish just what we are. I am proud to be one of the Americans who are going to bring back and protect what America is all about.

  39. CJ says:

    I’m excited to be starting out at the beginning of this new blogging adventure with Troy and jr and everyone else!!! Let’s go Heyoka gang. Keep the news and information flowing as we have done so well all along.

    Thanks to Rose for letting us learn how to fly!! Thanks to Troy and jr for taking the reins and leading us forward!!

    Now it’s time for another big time NHL hockey game for my Buffalo Sabres. Playoff game number 2. See you all later!


  40. Fernley Girl says:

    The same thing could happen with the volcano in Iceland. If it keeps on spewing ash there could be long-term changes in the weather. Food supplies could diminish greatly if the ash in the atmosphere blocks sunlight.

    Gallop Poll: 50% of Registered Voters Do Not Think Obama Deserves Re-Election
    President Barack Obama has reached a tipping point in his popularity. Gallop has found 50% of registered voters don’t think he deserves re-election. That’s change we can believe in.

  42. j.b. says:

    CJ said;
    …Honestly, I’m more confused than ever. I think I am on information overload. Too much reading and not enough clear, truthful and simple resoulutions to any of these huge problems facing all of us. I only care about making things better for my kids and grandkids, but right now I don’t know exactly what to do. Well, tomorrow is another day. Maybe something good will appear to make the picture clearer. Trust the Lord is probably the simplest solution anyway…

    Ditto CJ and well said.

  45. ryansgrammy says:

    Fernley — you’re right about the volcano’s impact–sounds like its already causing all kinds of disruption over in Europe. Of course I’m sure if there is any lasting impact, the liberals will blame it on global warming. I’m surprised they don’t have some geologists lining up to say the eruption was caused by climate change (or that it too is GWB’s fault).

    Press airs grievances to Gibbs
    White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs met with a delegation from the White House press corps for 75 minutes on Thursday in an effort to improve frayed relations between the two sides.

    Ed Chen, a White House correspondent for Bloomberg News who is president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, said he asked for the meeting “to clear the air because in my 10-plus years at the White House, rarely have I sensed such a level of anger, which is wide and deep, among members over White House practices and attitude toward the press.”

    Chen said he feels “very good about the collegial give and take.”

    “We had a very good exchange with Robert,” Chen said. “He stayed overtime, and thus was late for his next meeting.”

    Gibbs said the meeting in his West Wing office was “comprehensive and productive.”

    Hey Oka This gang – So does this mean when someone wants to hat tip the Heyoka This blog it’ll be h/t to H/T? (I’m tired and a bit punchy as you can tell)

    Re: the volcano – I think it’s Poland’s way of keeping obama out of the country for the funeral. Just sayin’. Too bad he didn’t get there and get stuck – I might sleep better for a few nights.

    I did read yesterday someone linked a story that the climate alarmists ARE blaming the volcanic eruption of global warming. I guess we have the power to control Earth’s inner core with our SUV emissions. Puhleeeze!

    I forgot to tell you that one of the speakers at our Tea Party on Thursday is a ‘retired’ meteorologist/weather man who has been in Denver for decades. Two years ago, during a broadcast, he made a comment about “the Church of Global Warming” (we were watching it and remember laughing). Not so funny for him. He was fired. Nice, eh?

    Today’s experience was a positive one – in our massive county in terms of square miles, yet tiny in terms of total population, we had approx. 70 people show up for this first Tea Party meeting. How cool is that??

    Anyone have any recommendations for a company where I can order personalized hats/buttons, etc.? These people want to wear it loud and proud, and start conversations with others. As well as offer them for sale at county fairs, rodeos, and parades. And since I talked so much I got ‘volunteered’ for that job. :lol:

  53. jrinNC says:

    Katie – 70 people that is fantastic. You know that it will increase as word gets out.

    Here is a site for hats/buttons: Prices not too bad


  54. Katie says:

    Most amazing was who was there – several candidates for county offices, including both candidates for Sheriff. Tenacity will agree that this is HUGE!

    In addition, our state congresswoman was there, and she is a PITBULL for individual rights. So this isn’t just about a group getting together to whine and complain, this is about how we can organize and activate to support our elected officials who are fighting a good fight while in a minority.

    Until November!!!!!!!!!!

  61. Fernley Girl says:

    Two hundred and thirty-five years ago today. I always liked the last two stanzas the best.

    Listen my children and you shall hear
    Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
    On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
    Hardly a man is now alive
    Who remembers that famous day and year.

    He said to his friend, “If the British march
    By land or sea from the town to-night,
    Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch
    Of the North Church tower as a signal light,–
    One if by land, and two if by sea;
    And I on the opposite shore will be,
    Ready to ride and spread the alarm
    Through every Middlesex village and farm,
    For the country folk to be up and to arm.”

    Then he said “Good-night!” and with muffled oar
    Silently rowed to the Charlestown shore,
    Just as the moon rose over the bay,
    Where swinging wide at her moorings lay
    The Somerset, British man-of-war;
    A phantom ship, with each mast and spar
    Across the moon like a prison bar,
    And a huge black hulk, that was magnified
    By its own reflection in the tide.

    Meanwhile, his friend through alley and street
    Wanders and watches, with eager ears,
    Till in the silence around him he hears
    The muster of men at the barrack door,
    The sound of arms, and the tramp of feet,
    And the measured tread of the grenadiers,
    Marching down to their boats on the shore.

    Then he climbed the tower of the Old North Church,
    By the wooden stairs, with stealthy tread,
    To the belfry chamber overhead,
    And startled the pigeons from their perch
    On the sombre rafters, that round him made
    Masses and moving shapes of shade,–
    By the trembling ladder, steep and tall,
    To the highest window in the wall,
    Where he paused to listen and look down
    A moment on the roofs of the town
    And the moonlight flowing over all.

    Beneath, in the churchyard, lay the dead,
    In their night encampment on the hill,
    Wrapped in silence so deep and still
    That he could hear, like a sentinel’s tread,
    The watchful night-wind, as it went
    Creeping along from tent to tent,
    And seeming to whisper, “All is well!”
    A moment only he feels the spell
    Of the place and the hour, and the secret dread
    Of the lonely belfry and the dead;
    For suddenly all his thoughts are bent
    On a shadowy something far away,
    Where the river widens to meet the bay,–
    A line of black that bends and floats
    On the rising tide like a bridge of boats.

    Meanwhile, impatient to mount and ride,
    Booted and spurred, with a heavy stride
    On the opposite shore walked Paul Revere.
    Now he patted his horse’s side,
    Now he gazed at the landscape far and near,
    Then, impetuous, stamped the earth,
    And turned and tightened his saddle girth;
    But mostly he watched with eager search
    The belfry tower of the Old North Church,
    As it rose above the graves on the hill,
    Lonely and spectral and sombre and still.
    And lo! as he looks, on the belfry’s height
    A glimmer, and then a gleam of light!
    He springs to the saddle, the bridle he turns,
    But lingers and gazes, till full on his sight
    A second lamp in the belfry burns.

    A hurry of hoofs in a village street,
    A shape in the moonlight, a bulk in the dark,
    And beneath, from the pebbles, in passing, a spark
    Struck out by a steed flying fearless and fleet;
    That was all! And yet, through the gloom and the light,
    The fate of a nation was riding that night;
    And the spark struck out by that steed, in his flight,
    Kindled the land into flame with its heat.
    He has left the village and mounted the steep,
    And beneath him, tranquil and broad and deep,
    Is the Mystic, meeting the ocean tides;
    And under the alders that skirt its edge,
    Now soft on the sand, now loud on the ledge,
    Is heard the tramp of his steed as he rides.

    It was twelve by the village clock
    When he crossed the bridge into Medford town.
    He heard the crowing of the cock,
    And the barking of the farmer’s dog,
    And felt the damp of the river fog,
    That rises after the sun goes down.

    It was one by the village clock,
    When he galloped into Lexington.
    He saw the gilded weathercock
    Swim in the moonlight as he passed,
    And the meeting-house windows, black and bare,
    Gaze at him with a spectral glare,
    As if they already stood aghast
    At the bloody work they would look upon.

    It was two by the village clock,
    When he came to the bridge in Concord town.
    He heard the bleating of the flock,
    And the twitter of birds among the trees,
    And felt the breath of the morning breeze
    Blowing over the meadow brown.
    And one was safe and asleep in his bed
    Who at the bridge would be first to fall,
    Who that day would be lying dead,
    Pierced by a British musket ball.

    You know the rest. In the books you have read
    How the British Regulars fired and fled,—
    How the farmers gave them ball for ball,
    From behind each fence and farmyard wall,
    Chasing the redcoats down the lane,
    Then crossing the fields to emerge again
    Under the trees at the turn of the road,
    And only pausing to fire and load.

    So through the night rode Paul Revere;
    And so through the night went his cry of alarm
    To every Middlesex village and farm,—
    A cry of defiance, and not of fear,
    A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door,
    And a word that shall echo for evermore!
    For, borne on the night-wind of the Past,
    Through all our history, to the last,
    In the hour of darkness and peril and need,
    The people will waken and listen to hear
    The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed,
    And the midnight message of Paul Revere.

    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Wall Street suspects Goldman charges ‘not coincidental’ to financial reform effort
    | More Print

    2:16 PM, April 16, 2010 ι By KAJA WHITEHOUSE

    Wall Street is more than a little suspicious of today’s charges by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which has accused Goldman Sachs of lying to investors about who was really behind junk mortgages securities it sold to clients.

    Barclays banking analyst Roger Freeman comes right out and blasts the SEC effort as “a well-timed, and perhaps not coincidental, effort to sway some on-the-fence Republicans” to get tough on financial reform.

    “Targeting GS, given the flurry of anti-Wall Street press that has centered around that firm, offers the publicity that the administration needs at this critical juncture,” Freeman says in a note to clients today.

    Barack Obama’s Missing Girlfriends
    By Jack Cashill
    The blogosphere abhors a vacuum. So when the mainstream media (MSM) leave holes in a given narrative — in this case, the biography of the president — bloggers individually, incrementally, and indefatigably strive to fill in the blanks — sometimes successfully, sometimes less so.
    In his comprehensive, 600-plus-page biography of Barack Obama titled The Bridge, New Yorker editor David Remnick lays down the baseline of what the mainstream media know about the president — or at least what they want us to know.
    Where Remnick falls oddly silent — not even to scold the blogosphere, which he does often — is on the question of Obama’s love life. This would not be particularly noteworthy save that Obama’s 1995 memoir Dreams From My Father is in large part a racial coming-of-age story.
    In Obama’s all-consuming search for identity, and in Remnick’s effort to document that search, Obama’s romantic life should surely have featured. Whether he dated white women or black women — and what he might have learned from either — matters.

    The Face of Retribution?
    Published April 18, 2010 constitution , drkate 1
    ©2010 drkate

    When I think of the circumstances of our Nation right now, and what we face, it becomes apparent that some greater design of conflict is upon us. I have been inspired by the possibility of prayer and intention and the massive awakening of Americans. Yet, when I contemplate the Invisible Empire, and that the entire 20th Century was used to dig the New World Order’s tentacles into America, I despair. For no human power it seems can defeat this, or even thwart it.

    Lifting my face up, I see that greater force acting through the earth, through nature, to exact retribution. The NWO bankrupted Iceland. Oops, big volcanic eruption, likely to cause extended air travel problems throughout the world.

    He gives the term rogue regime new meaning. He rewrites history before our very eyes and close to half of the people in this country are shaking their empty bobble heads and saying, please, master, may I have some more?

    This crap is so insulting to any thinking man. The crisis he refers to below was a result of Democrat policies of forcing banks to make loans (sub prime loans) to uncreditworthy underachievers. Period.

    The 550 billion dollar electronic run on the bank was no accident on September 11,2008. McCain was leading, but the financial meltdown opened the door for the Mansourian candidate.

    He has, inside of a year, destroyed our alliances, abandoned our allies, nationalized banks, insurance companies, and the automotive business, and rammed communist healthcare down our collective throats. He has bankrupted this country and stolen the wealth of our nation and our children. He has embraced Islamic anti-semitism, sanctioned the Islamic bomb of the Iranian mullahcracy, handed Russia Eastern Europe on a plate, thrown away our nuclear advantage, and despised us for our superiority. And then contemptuously told us to thank him and kiss his marxist ass.

    Now he is going to nationalize Wall Street.

    Dear Employees:

    As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack Obama is our President and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way.

    To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%. But since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees instead.

    This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and I didn’t know how to choose who would have to go.

    So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lots and found sixty ‘Obama’
    bumper stickers on our employees’ cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can’t think of a more fair way to approach this problem. They voted for change…… I gave it to them.

    I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

    59% of the people surveyed by the New York Daily News want to see proof of Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be the President and Commander in Chief of our military. That is not a fringe percentage of the population as the news media continually tries to paint the issue. -

    59% of the American people want a serious investigation of the matter of Obama’s true place of birth. That is NOT a fringe percentage. That is a super majority. When will the media wake up and do its job and truly investigate all the hidden records for Obama and stop running interference for Obama and helping him deceive the American people. Are there are real investigative journalists left in this nation who believe in the Constitution and the rule of law!? – CDR Kerchner.

    The New York Daily News has posted a slanderous, inaccurate and biased article concerning patriotic Lt. Col Terry Lakin, who has taken the stance that enough is enough, and that the usurpation of the Office of President and Commander in Chief must be resolved before it tears our Nation apart.

    Watchdogs: Temple for Ted Kennedy built with pork
    John Kerry, Edward Markey request millions in public funds
    By Renee Dudley
    Sunday, April 18, 2010 – Updated 5h ago

    The amount of taxpayer money being funneled to a Dorchester shrine to the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy has ballooned to $38 million and could rise to at least $68 million this year, infuriating watchdog groups who insist the project should be privately funded.

    With $38.3 million in federal earmarks already secured for the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, Sen. John F. Kerry and Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Malden) have in recent days tapped the government for $30 million more in the next budget.

    The new taxpayer-funded total would cover the full $60 million estimated cost of building the project, adjacent to John F. Kennedy Presidential Library at Columbia Point. And it would put the public on the hook for nearly half the project’s $150 million target.

    Senior Iraqi al-Qaeda leaders ‘killed’

    Mr Maliki said the men had been hiding in a hole in the ground
    Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki and US officials say two leaders of al-Qaeda in Iraq have been killed in a joint Iraqi-US operation.

    Mr Maliki said on national TV that the Iraqi al-Qaeda leader Abu Ayyub al-Masri and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, who led an affiliate group, were dead.

    The US said it was “the most significant blow to al-Qaeda in Iraq since the beginning of the insurgency”.

    Mr Maliki said both had been killed in Salaheddin province, west of Baghdad.

    Iraqi TV showed pictures of both men before and after their deaths.

    “The attack was carried out by ground forces which surrounded the house, and also through the use of missiles,” Mr Maliki said.

    He said the house in Thar-Thar had been destroyed and the two bodies were found inside, in a hole in the ground in which they had been hiding.

    In a statement, US Forces-Iraq Commander Gen Raymond T Odierno said: “The death of these terrorists is potentially the most significant blow to al-Qaeda in Iraq since the beginning of the insurgency.”

    A US statement said Iraqi forces with US support had mounted a night-time raid on the al-Qaeda leaders’ safe-house.

    It said the men were killed “after engaging the security team” and that Masri’s assistant along with the son of al-Baghdadi were also killed.

    Previous official reports that both militants had been captured have turned out to be untrue.

    Umbrella group

    Abu Ayyub al-Masri was also known as Abu Hamza al-Muhajir.

    Masri was purported to have formed al-Qaeda’s first cell in Baghdad
    He was believed to have helped Abu Musab al-Zarqawi form the first al-Qaeda cell in Baghdad. Zarqawi was killed in June 2006.

    The Islamic State in Iraq is an umbrella organisation that includes several radical Sunni militant groups.

    Al-Baghdadi was a nom de guerre for its shadowy leader, although some US commanders had previously cast doubt on whether he even existed. Iraqi officials said his real name was Ahmad Abid Ahmad Khamis al-Majmai and US officials also named him as Hamid Dawud Muhammad Khalil al Zawi.

    Some Details of Secretive X-37B Space Plane Revealed
    By Leonard David’s Space Insider Columnist
    posted: 18 April 2010
    05:27 am ET

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – An Atlas booster is poised to hurl from Florida the reusable X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle into space — now projected to be an April 21 launch.

    The X-37B orbital space plane, essentially a mini-shuttle, will be placed into Earth orbit and loiter in space for an unspecified period of time. It will then reenter for an auto-pilot landing at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, or at neighboring Edwards Air Force Base as back-up.

    Not much else is known.

    Ads by GoogleThe Real American TankersCombat tested, American made. Join the fight for Boeing tankers. http://www.RealAmericanTankers.comBlood Pressure DiscoveryHugh Downs Reports: Artery clearing secret from Nobel Prize Winner http://www.bottomlinesecrets.comWe Make Custom Coins FastFree Dies, Free Art & Free options We have the fastest turn around! http://www.CoinsForAnything.comIt‘s a tight-lipped affair, with its builder — Boeing Phantom Works — pledged to retain vocal silence on the flight — advising this reporter here that they “defer to the customer” — the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office.

    Some new details about the X-37B space plane have been made available, provided by Angie Blair, an Air Force spokeswoman for the project during this week’s 26th National Space Symposium held here. [Graphic: How the X-37B Spacecraft Works.]

    Control center

    The X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV) is capable of supporting a flexible range of experiments, Blair said. “The first mission will emphasize proving technologies necessary for long duration reusable space vehicles with autonomous reentry and landing capabilities.”

    “It’s a developmental effort,” Blair said, and it’s standard practice with many Department of Defense development efforts, “specific details of the OTV capabilities, limitations and vulnerabilities” are classified.

    Once launched, the X-37B is designed for space missions of up to 270 days, Blair advised, if everything goes as planned. The space plane was designed for low earth orbits, ranging from 110 to 500 nautical miles, she told

    All that being said, exactly where the vehicle’s mission control center is located remains classified.

    The long term assignment of a mission control center is dependent upon a successful capabilities demonstration, followed by transition to an operational command, Blair explained. “But what we can say is that the X-37B will be operated by contractors under the direction of Air Force Space Command’s 3rd Space Experimentation Squadron.”

    According to a U.S. Air Force website, the 3rd Space Experimentation Squadron is the Air Force Space Command’s (AFSPC) premier organization for space-based demonstrations, pathfinders and experiments. The unit identifies concepts of employment, training, education and technical skill sets required to field selected future AFSPC missions.

    This squadron is developing a core cadre of space professionals to serve as subject matter experts for all future AFSPC space-based endeavors, demonstrate operational utility of selected demonstrations and apply lessons learned from demonstrations and pathfinders for use in future initiatives.

    As for program cost, Blair said that the X-37B effort leverages extensive and early Air force, NASA, and Boeing investments. “Details on the funding level remain within the Air Force’s classified budget request,” she said.

    Obscure and mysterious

    While there’s a high-level of hush-hushness surrounding the flight, what could the X-37B flight imply and what’s behind the project?

    There could be a trio of rationales, suggested military space specialist, Roger Handberg, Professor and Chair in the Department of Political Science at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

    The X-37B appears to be a vestige of the 1990s push by the Air Force and NASA for reusable vehicles, Handberg noted. He advised that the project may signify continued U.S. Air Force interest in a rapid response vehicle along the lines of the long-proposed space maneuver vehicle and the X-37B is their best shot for that type program.

    “The second explanation is that of bureaucratic inertia in military programs which is why the justifications and cost estimates are so obscure and mysterious,” Handberg said. “Once started, programs are difficult to kill especially when the proponents speak of marvelous capabilities analogous to aircraft style operation down the road.”

    A third reason, Handberg continued, is to think of this effort “as the logical extension of the push into unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) where vehicles used for observation have moved into weapon carriers and various of other missions, many classified.” Indeed, one could build an architecture linking UAVs and such vehicles to give you truly global reach, he added.

    In the global scheme of things, how might other nations perceive the X-37B flight?

    “From the perspective of international observers — especially in space-aspiring states such as China, the X-37B program just reinforces their view that the U.S. is pushing to gain first mover advantage in rapid response including possible weaponization of space using this vehicle or a derivative,” Handberg responded.

    Possession of such a capability, Handberg said, would allow the U.S. to, in a sense, threaten other states by our possession of a rapid response capabilities that can — through payload swap out — go from peaceful reconnaissance to direct attack on other states’ spacecraft.

    Another Obama favor for unions

    Examiner Editorial

    April 14, 2010

    President Obama has signed an order for federal agencies to only take bids for government contracts from contractors who have a union work force, even though only 15 percent of all construction-industry workers are union members.

    Barely 15 percent of all construction-industry workers in the United States are union members, while the remaining 85 percent are nonunion, according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. So why has President Obama signed Executive Order 13502 directing federal agencies taking bids for government construction projects to accept only those from contractors who agree in advance to a project labor agreement that requires a union work force?

    Great article over at AmericanThinker about George Soros. He is funding a new organization called INET. Lots of good clarification in this article about what happened so far with our financial messes and how involved he an Paulson were and how much of our money they walked off with via their manipulations. I think this GoldmanSachs thing going on now is a huge diversion just to get their agenda moving again ala regulating private businsses. Goldman probably got or will get a nice payoff to play the fall guy. What a mess. Disgusting and evil all the way. I would hope one of God’s plans will be to call mr. Soros home for some questioning and judgement. I cannot believe there is a more evil person alive today.

    Take time to read the comments they are very good. Here’s one:

    When IndyMac was taken over by OneWest Bank, and guess who has an interest in it, that’s right Soros as well as a former Goldman Sachs guy, they made a sweetheart deal with the feds when they assumed all those mortgages. They would get reimbursed up to 80% of the losses they suffered on any defaults. But the kicker was that they would get the loss based on the orginal mortgage. That is if the original mortgage was $500,000 and the owner was being foreclosed and owed 180,000, and the bank sold the house (literally for whatever they wanted) say $120,00 that meant that they would get 80% of $320,000! In other words no loss to them! No loss to Soros or OneWest! So the last line about Soros’ $50 million investment, I’d say has paid off handsomely. Now of course the issue is, how and why did Sen Chuck Schumer set the IndyMac ball in motion by leaking that letter and how does the current Goldman Sachs problem fit in to all of the stuff that went on that we were never supposed to know about? Soros’ new economy is based on his winning and us losing. The biggest transfer of wealth this nation has ever seen to a few!

    Gun owners rally in D.C., Va. for rights

    Gun owners rally in D.C., Va. for rights

    By Joseph Weber

    Gun owners came out in force Monday on both sides of the Potomac River to proclaim their Second Amendment rights, but only those on the Northern Virginia side of the river came bearing their handguns and rifles.

    Hundreds of pro-gun activists rallied near the base of the Washington Monument on the National Mall and at Fort Hunt Park, south of Alexandria, and Gravelly Point in Arlington, with those in the District protesting the city’s strict laws prohibiting them from displaying their guns in public.

    “I’m here to support the Second Amendment,” Mike Julius, 50, of Crofton, Md., said at the D.C. event. “Gun ownership is a constitutional right.”

    Speakers at the event urged the crowd to support pro-gun candidates in this fall’s midterm elections. Organizers said the Northern Virginia event, in which participants carried guns in holsters and toted unloaded rifles over their shoulders, was the first such rally in a national park since Congress earlier this year allowed visitors to carry firearms in national parks.

    Among the signs at the National Mall protest was one that read, “The Constitution isn’t a list of suggestions.” Another, taking a veiled swipe at President Obama, read, “The difference between a communist and a socialist is that a socialist doesn’t have all the guns yet.”

    The officer refusing Army orders until Barack Obama documents his eligibility to be president and commander in chief is hitting the airwaves tomorrow to answer questions about his challenge to the president.

    Lt. Col. Terry Lakin is scheduled to be on the G. Gordon Liddy show tomorrow from 10-11 a.m. EDT.

    He is scheduled to be joined at 10:30 a.m. by Joseph Farah, founder and CEO of WorldNetDaily, which has reported extensively since before the 2008 election on questions being raised over Obama’s eligibility to occupy the Oval Office.

    The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”

    Hi Everybody!

    Recently, while I was listening to Moody Bible radio, a man was talking about a report by the GAO (government accountablity office).

    The man said that the gao report that by the year 2019 over 90% of federal revenue will be spent supporting 4 programs — Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and interest on the federal debt.

    The report is there. I looked it up. He said they have known for a very long time that US debt is unsustainable.

    The man also said that historically, whatever the gov projects, it’s always low end — you can almost always double the cost.

    In our Alternative simulation, which assumes expiring tax provisions are
    extended through 2019 and then revenue is held constant at the 40-year
    historical average, roughly 92 cents of every dollar of federal revenue will
    be spent on the major entitlement programs and net interest costs by 2019.
    This is due largely to a substantial increase in interest on federal debt.

    I believe this is the man I heard on the radio.

    Spokesperson for Army Doctor Challenging Obama’s Eligibility speaks with The Post & Email

    by Sharon Rondeau

    (Apr. 19, 2010) — Margaret Calhoun Hemenway, spokeswoman for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, an Army medical doctor who has challenged Obama’s eligibility to serve as Commander-in-Chief, very generously gave her time to The Post & Email last Friday to discuss Lt. Col. Lakin’s case.

    For clarification purposes of Ms. Hemenway’s references to her father-in-law, John Hemenway, Mr. Hemenway represented a plaintiff in one of the lawsuits against Obama, Hollister v. Soetoro, which was dismissed by Judge John Robertson, who wrote in his opinion that Obama’s eligibility had been “blogged, texted, twittered and otherwise massaged” before the election.

    Constitutionalist challenges “Conservative” Talk Show Host on Presidential Eligibility

    by Neil Turner

    Today is Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts, where in 1775 Paul Revere began his famous ride in Lexington
    On April 12, 2010, ten minutes into the third hour of your broadcast, you said: “I’m not a ‘Birther’ but … Barack Obama is an American citizen, born of a U.S. woman citizen …”

    You then talked about a member of the Kenyan Parliament making a statement to the effect:

    I immediately called in to try to get you to discuss this a little further, but your screener told me that you had expressed yourself clearly and would not discuss it any further today. However, I was confused as to where you stood on the matter.

    The question I left with your screener was: Why do you, Roger, think that the usurpation of our Presidency by Fraud and Deceit is neither a High Crime nor even a Misdemeanor? I and millions of your listeners would have liked to have have heard your considered response to this, lest we conclude that someone made you an offer that you couldn’t refuse.

    Citizen apprehended en route to Fitzpatrick hearing in Tennessee

    by Pixel Patriot

    (Apr. 20, 2010) — An eyewitness account states that as of approximately 7:20 a.m. today, Patriots were traveling due east on Highway 68 toward Sweetwater, TN in transit to the Monroe County courthouse to show support for Lt. Cmdr. Walter Fitzpatrick III (Ret.), who had been arrested on April 1 after attempting to effect a citizen’s arrest at the courthouse.

    The travelers were approximately 15 minutes from their destination when an Oath Keeper was pulled over while driving lawfully. He has now been removed from his vehicle and is in the back of either a Sheriff’s car or a TN State Trooper’s vehicle. Two unmarked SUV’s are also on the scene. Carl Swensson, an eyewitness who was traveling behind in a separate vehicle, said that neither of them was driving unlawfully.

    The eyewitness reports that the only difference between Swensson’s vehicle and the car in front of him was that the latter had a sign that said “Oath Keeper.” Swensson said the sign was not hand drawn but professionally made. It was Swensson’s opinion that the the police “must have been tracking them.”

    Also reported is that Swensson has been in communication with Mack Ellis of the U.S. Grand Jury and that the Monroe County courthouse is in “lockdown,” meaning that no one is allowed anywhere near or inside the courthouse except the defendant.

    More information will be provided as it becomes available.

    Next bubble: $600 trillion?
    Cities, states, universities could sink from monster derivatives meltdown
    Posted: April 19, 2010
    9:40 pm Eastern

    By Jerome R. Corsi
    © 2010 WorldNetDaily

    As interest rates begin to rise worldwide, losses in derivatives may end up bankrupting a wide range of institutions, including municipalities, state governments, major insurance companies, top investment houses, commercial banks and universities.

    Defaults now beginning to occur in a number of European cities prefigure what may end up being the largest financial bubble ever to burst – a bubble that today amounts to more than $600 trillion.

    The Bank of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, now estimates derivatives – the complex bets financial institutions and sophisticated institutional investors make with one another on everything from commodities options to credit swaps – topped $604 trillion worldwide at the end of June 2009.

    To comprehend the relative magnitude of derivative contracts globally, the CIA Factbook estimates the 2009 Gross Domestic Product, or GDP, of the world was just under $60 trillion.

    Derivative contracts, therefore, have now reach a level 10 times world GDP, meaning even a 10 percent default in derivatives would equal world GDP.

    The small 800-year-old town of Saint-Etienne in France has just defaulted on a $1.6 million contract owed to Deutsche Bank. The city entered into a complex currency swap arrangement to reduce the cost of borrowing some $30 million.

    To cancel all 10 derivative contracts Saint-Etienne currently holds would cost the town approximately $135 million, more than six times the amount initially borrowed, largely because no bank or institutional investor would want to purchase contracts that are now on the losing side of the bet.

    Saint-Etienne is only one of thousands of EU municipalities that bought into derivative contracts as a way to cut the costs of municipal borrowing.

    Arizona House OKs Birther Bill
    House votes to check candidates’ citizenship

    PHOENIX (AP) – The Arizona House on Monday voted for a provision that would require President Barack Obama to show his birth certificate if he hopes to be on the state’s ballot when he runs for re-election.

    The House voted 31-22 to add the provision to a separate bill. The measure still faces a formal vote.

    It would require U.S. presidential candidates who want to appear on the ballot in Arizona to submit documents proving they meet the constitutional requirements to be president.

    Phoenix Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema says the bill is one of several measures that are making Arizona “the laughing stock of the nation.”

    Mesa Republican Rep. Cecil Ash says he has no reason to doubt Obama’s citizenship but supports the measure because it could help end doubt.

    Statement from Rep. Sinema:

    “Republicans continue to take Arizona down the wrong track by wasting taxpayers time on frivolous legislation instead of working on important issues like health care for kids and seniors and education.”

    “Republican Rep. Judy Burges amendment to Senate Bill 1024 today would require the Arizona secretary of state to verify a presidential candidate’s birth certificate before the candidate’s name is allowed on a ballot in Arizona. A presidential candidate already is required to prove that he or she is a naturally born citizen before they can run for that office.”

    “This bill is nothing more than a waste of taxpayers time when the legislature should be working to fix more important issues like the fact that it eliminated KidsCare, which forfeits all federal health care dollars for kids and seniors in Arizona. ”

    Tancredo urges Tea Partiers to send Obama back to Kenya

    Former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) urged Tea Partiers this weekend to help “send [Obama] back” to Kenya.

    Speaking at a rally in Greenville, S.C., on Saturday, Tancredo cited remarks Michelle Obama made earlier this month in which she called Kenya was the president’s “home country.”

    “If his wife says Kenya is his homeland, why don’t we just send him back?” Tancredo said, according to the Greenville News.

    Asked about Tancredo’s comments, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs dismissed them as “lunacy.”

    “I could probably fill the better part of my afternoons responding to the lunacy of people such as Tom Tancredo,” Gibbs said.

    Government Informant: Delta Force Involved In Waco Shoot-Out
    by MiaX April 20, 2010 09:49

    **World Exclusive**
    **Must Credit DRUDGE REPORT**

    September 6, 1999

    WASHINGTON–A former government officer has told investigators that members of the secret Army unit Delta Force said they participated in a shoot-out during the final assault on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

    The witness, according to congressional sources, has already named names; and will soon offer his account under oath!

    The development caused panic and confusion at the top levels of the Justice Department and the FBI over the holiday weekend, leaving one top official scrambling for details.

    FBI Director Freeh has demanded a full briefing, one agency source divulged late Monday.


    Meanwhile, congressional investigators are growing convinced that infrared film taken by an FBI surveillance aircraft at 9,000 feet on the final day of the Waco standoff does appear to show U.S. armed forces firing into the church compound.

    “We are looking at the footage frame-by-frame… most of us have grown convinced that it does show snipers unloading from the rear of a tank,” an investigator for the House Government Reform Committee told the DRUDGE REPORT.

    Former FBI agent Richard Schwein, a supervisor at Waco, said charges of government gunfire were “absolutely false.”

    “False, absolutely false,” he said on FOX NEWS SUNDAY. “No FBI agent fired any rounds from their weapons at Waco. There were no Delta Forces or special operations soldiers in an operational capacity at Waco.” “And everyone on our side, and the FBI’s side, were in armored vehicles, so I don’t know how you’d have films of anybody firing into the back of the building. No one was on foot, because we had no body armor that would stop the rounds they were firing.”


    Use of active military personnel against civilians without presidential decree is a violation of federal law.

    Late last month White House spokesman Joe Lockhart first told reporters that he had no information on the waiver issue.

    [August 26, 1999; Thursday]

    Q Joe, why was the Army’s Delta Force present on the scene the day that Waco burned?

    MR. LOCKHART: I would refer you to the Justice Department. I don’t have information on the Delta Force one way or the other.

    Q The reason I asked is because since the law prohibits the military being used against civilians, I wondered whether the White House either, A, requested it or, B, President Clinton signed a waiver for it.

    MR. LOCKHART: I don’t have any information on that. Again, I’d refer you to Justice. I don’t have any independent information on their role, if any.

    The next day, when asked again about any possible waiver, Lockhart offered more details.

    [August 27, 1999; Friday]

    Q What did the White House know about the potential operational involvement of Delta Force in the Waco siege?

    MR. LOCKHART: I think that’s an issue that was dealt with at the time. And as we said yesterday, the president was not asked to sign a waiver, nor were we aware of any activity that would have required a waiver. But, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, Lockhart may still not have the full story.

    One witness has told congressional investigators that in April of 1993, in response to a press inquiry, a White House spokesman stated privately that a “waiver is on the president’s desk that would have authorized military intervention.

    A development that will cause battle during fresh rounds of congressional hearings.

    Brown: Obama is a good man

    Is Sen. Scott Brown going Washington?

    On his first Sunday show appearance, the Republican from Massachusetts said President Barack Obama is not so bad after all, and the tea partiers were not the only ones to get the senator elected.

    After declining, in several ways, to answer whether the president was leaning toward socialism, Brown said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the president is “a good man.”

    “He has a good family. He has two wonderful daughters…I recognize that challenge and what that can hold and I respect the office of the president and I’ve always said that he is an American,” Brown said. “I know he cares deeply about our country, but there’s just different priorities.”

    About snubbing Sarah Palin at a Boston rally and not attending tea party protests in Washington? Brown said he had a job to do.

    “My role now as an elected official is to do my job,” Brown said.

    After a few months in Washington, Brown said his view of the town has not changed.

    “Washington is broken, the perception is correct,” he said. “There’s too much partisan politics involved and as I’ve said before, I’ll be the 41st vote when its appropriate and when it deals with issues effecting my state and this country, and I’ll be the 60th vote because we need to get things moving. People are hurting.”

    1 – We have been on Constitutional Law since 12:01 AM Eastern since Friday, 3 days ago. And we are using the Constitution that was printed in 1870. Get a copy and educate yourself.

    2 – Many meetings going on in D.C. as most of them know nothing about the laws.

    3 – Most attorneys and judges know nothing or very little about these laws. They were not covered in law school.

    4 – All executive orders, acts and laws that were enacted while our country was a corporation will be null and void.

    5 – The first announcement will be April 26, 2010, which will be regarding debt forgiveness.

    6 – The second announcement will be the following night and will be about the new government.

    7 – The third announcement will be the following night which will be about all the “bad stuff” that has been started by the “bad boys” over the past 100 years. Many nights of announcements will follow. A number of them will be the education of the masses. I heard a total of about 10 to 12 nights.

    8 – Political prisoners will be released most any day.

    9 – Go to for more information and also sign up if you want to become sovereign.

    10 -A package of what will be done and how have been delivered to each governor of each Republic, the Supreme Court, the Military and many other official offices. The officials had to take an oath to the Constitution within 72 hours or resign from their office. We no longer call them states, they are Republics.

    If anyone has a list of the meetings and/conference calls pertaining to the Restore America Plan, their times, phone numbers, radio stations, etc., please forward them to me so we can inform many more people.

    Video: Police vs. Press at the White House

    Reporters covering a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” protest at the White House today were forced out of Lafayette Square by police. The scene, captured on video, is remarkable given the historical importance of the park as a protest spot across the street from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    President Obama, who boasts of the most transparent administration in history, is facing increasingly angry rhetoric on the issue. But the more important matter facing the administration today involves freedom of the press. Why would Secret Service officers, charged with protecting the White House, order credentialed journalists to leave the scene of a public protest?

    The incident should raise red flags with Obama and the reporters who cover him. It’s unacceptable for journalists to be chased away from a public venue under the guise of preventing negative publicity for the White House. Had this happened under President George W. Bush, the outcry from the Fourth Estate would be at a fever pitch.

    From the Obama File (and Jeffersonsrebels)

    The following transcript is of an April 14, 2010 debate on the floor of the Kenyan National Assembly. The question under discussion concerns the repatriation of Kenyan artifacts which were removed from the country by colonialists. The Ministers want to know what is being done to return the artifacts, or failing their return, how and when Kenya will be compensated for their loss. They argue that museums in the US and elsewhere have earned money on these artifacts, thus those countries are indebted to Kenya. Importantly, in 2006, when Barack Obama visited Kenya, strategized with, and campaigned on behalf of Raila Odinga, the Senator also promised to help with the return of artifacts to Kenya or to seek financial compensation.

    The question Dr. Bonny Khalwale asked concerns the “repatriation” of Barack Obama!

    Quote — bottom of page 8: “Dr. Khalwale: Mr. Speaker, Sir, the Minister has told us that the office of the then Senator Obama gave him a lot of assistance. That is very good to hear. Could he tell us what commitment the same office made by way of compensation to this country because those artefacts in those museums have been attracting visitors who were paying to view them? What commitment did they make about compensation and more importantly, the biggest artefact in the USA today that belongs to this country is one Barrack Obama. How does he intend to repatriate himself or part of the money that is realized from all the royalties that he is attracting across the whole world?”

Can’t let him get the idea he’s in charge of the Dems anymore.

    Eligibility issues still gaining momo. Lakin is trying to make a difference but I think the Army will shut this down before Lakin gets too far. Too bad about his career being thrown away and he probably won’t get what he’s looking for—Obama’s records admitted to public view via the court case. The Liddy interview was pretty interesting, caught part of it this afternoon.

Also, the supposed trips by Obama to beg for money and someone ‘in the know’ telling details about these secret jaunts all over the world, Clinton supposedly went begging too, secret packages delivered (not sure what they are or what they will accomplish) , etc, etc. Who are these people anyway? Makes no sense. I guess I need more proof of what they are and who they are. I truly wish it could all be solved without a bit of trouble and noise. I wish it was legit. I think it is not.

    ‘Climategate’ author unveils evidence of ‘every deception imaginable’

    Al Gore’s insistence that global warming is “settled science” has been used to defend claims humanity is on the edge of destroying the world. Now author Brian Sussman, whose book “Climategate” is being released Thursday – Earth Day – agrees it’s “settled,” as a scam.

    Sussman unveils in his book evidence that the move to restrict carbon dioxide emissions, tax a multitude of energy programs and create a “Big Brother” that would limit household energy use, among other programs is a move to give government unlimited control over people.

    National Public Radio reported in 2007 how Gore took his “climate change crusade” to Congress and said the science on the issue was “settled.” Then in 2009 the Environmental Protection Agency declared carbon dioxide and other emissions are endangering the future of the world.

    Sussman’s book, the newest title by WND Books, has been charting for several weeks already among Amazon’s top 10 preordered titles. It warns that believing global warming is “settled science” is a danger itself.

    He writes that the now-notorious intercepted e-mails that reveal leading global warming supporters exchanging plans to squelch critics and falsify data are just the tip of the iceberg.

    Health-care mandates could be ‘null and void’
    Citizens launch drive to put feds back in their constitutional place

    A group of Americans who believe the federal government overstepped its constitutional bounds in passing the recent health-care legislation is rallying allies to a bold and controversial initiative: state nullification of the federal law.

    “Now that health-care reform has been signed into law, the question people ask most is, ‘What do we do about it?’” said Michael Boldin, founder of the Tenth Amendment Center, in a statement. “The status quo response includes lobbying Congress, marching on D.C., ‘voting the bums out,’ suing in federal court and more. But the last 100 years have proven that none of these really work, and government continues to grow year in and year out.”

    Instead, the Center is reaching back into the history books to suggest states take up “nullification,” a controversial measure that would essentially involve states saying to the federal government, “Not in our borders, you don’t. That law has no effect here.”

    The Center is partnering with to announce release of model nullification legislation for states, called the Federal Health Care Nullification Act, and a call for 100,000 Americans to join a state-by-state petition to prompt legislators into action.

    Now you can join nearly 15,000 Americans and 100 members of Congress in declaring your independence from Obamacare by signing Rep. Michele Bachmann’s Declaration of Health Care Independence.

    “Nullification will allow Americans to stop the overreaching federal government now, not years from now,” said Trevor Lyman of in a statement. “We can make our biggest waves in local politics. Our state governments understand the impact of a vocal and irate minority, and they simply need to hear from us.

    “ and The Tenth Amendment Center’s Federal Health Care Nullification Act give our state legislators their marching orders,” he continued.

    The question of whether nullification is a legal and permissible step, however, has been battled over since the ink was still wet on the U.S. Constitution.

    Got this from Drudge (they have Pelousy’s pic with the article)

    Botox may diminish the experience of emotion
    Category: Neuroscience • Psychology
    Posted on: April 16, 2010 7:15 AM, by Mo

    DO you smile because you’re happy, or are you happy because you are smiling? Darwin believed that facial expressions are indeed important for experiencing emotions. In The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals, he wrote that “the free expression by outward signs of an emotion intensifies it…[whereas]…the repression…of all outward signs softens our emotions.” This idea was subsequently elaborated by the great psychologist William James, who suggested that “every representation of a movement awakens in some degree the actual movement which is its object.”

    Botox, which is used by millions of people every year to reduce wrinkles and frown lines on the forehead, works by paralyzing the muscles involved in producing facial expressions. A study due to be published in the journal Psychological Science suggests that by doing so, it impairs the ability to process the emotional content of language, and may diminish the quality of emotional experiences.

    Don’t know if anyone here watches Idol but I found this article

    ‘Idol Gives Back’ — To Pro-Abortion Groups
    Contact for reporters/journalists:; General E-Mail:; Interviews, 703-203-3500;

    FRONT ROYAL, Va., April 21 /Christian Newswire/ — Once again, “American Idol” is aligning itself with pro-abortion groups. Among the groups benefiting this year’s “Idol Gives Back” fund-raising campaign are Save the Children and the United Nations Foundation. “Idol Gives Back,” which airs tonight, will feature several celebrities who will urge Americans to make a donation.

    Save the Children has a working relationship with what it calls “prominent international organizations.” Several of these groups are actively pro-abortion, including Better World Fund, Center for Reproductive Rights, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Population Action International, and the U.S. Committee for UNICEF.

    In 2001, Save the Children worked with Planned Parenthood, the Population Action Council, and the pro-abortion Audubon Society on its five-year “Planet Campaign.” Funded by the rabidly pro-abortion/ population control David and Lucile Packard and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundations, the purpose of the campaign was to “raise awareness of the connections between international family planning and the health of children, women and the environment.” The Planet Campaign used television and print advertising, community outreach, special events, and other activities to spread its message. Save the Children said the campaign’s website provided “an international forum for discussion of, and action on, women’s reproductive health—including family planning—in various countries and diverse cultures around the world.”

    Morning everyone! Leaving for the day to be with friends and shop shop shop. Saw this at CW and thought it was very inspirational. Not sure who these people are, but if they represent our military then this is a very good message for all of us. Have a great day!

    Utah Tea Party: We’ve Taken Over the State GOP
    We’re doing the same in CO, but guess what? The RINO’s with deep pockets (and likely Dem support) are going around the delegate process by obtaining enough signatures to petition on the ballot. Then with their big bucks, they’ll blast the airwaves w/ ads.

    We all have a lot of work to do to inform the voters of the facts and crush the effectiveness of the MSM.

    “In Obama’s America, killing a fetus is a right, but consuming sodium-rich foods is enough to instigate government regulation. At this point, I don’t know whether to weep or…”

    Morning everyone. I haven’t seen any news yet as just got home from the graveyard shift. Just a comment…I think Obama has taken this literally!

    At income tax time, did you ever notice: When you put the two words ‘The’ and ‘IRS’ together it spells … ‘THEIRS’?

    Happy Dance!!!

    If any of you have videos that you would like for me to add to the playlist, then post the URLs to those videos right here in “Comments”.

    I’m not going to add music videos or funny type videos….Instead, I would like to keep it more along the lines of informative, i.e., speeches, documentaries, educational, etc…

    I know some of you have favorite Tea Party videos to share. :D

    Tonight’s special guest with Dr. Kate – Reverend Manning!
    Glad to hear that Katie — was looking at AGJ site this a.m. to see if there were any updates. Dr. Manning has been very quiet for the past few weeks.

  198. Troy says:

    I decided that we will/can add some patriotic music or music with a political message to the VodPod widget, i.e., anthem, pledge, military tributes, Tea Parties, etc..

  199. ryansgrammy says:

    Interesting that Dr. Mannings video includes statement saying why would CU accept a pot-smoking student with a 2.3 GPA. I hope they release tons of new evidence in May (with documents, of course, to back it all up).

    So the Kenyan Parliament has again scrubbed the comments from their March 25 meeting that obamass was born in Kenya (I wonder what they’re getting in return from obamass).

    The Naked Communism of Earth Day
    By Alan Caruba Wednesday, April 21, 2010
    It is no accident that April 22, Earth Day, is also the birth date of Vladimir Lenin, an acolyte of Karl Marx, the lunatic who invented communism as an alternative to capitalism.

    Earth Day is naked communism.

    To begin, it substitutes a worship of the Earth, Gaia, for the worship of God, creator of the universe and the instructor of moral behavior for mankind.

    The Earth does not demand a moral code of personal behavior. Indeed, the lesson it teaches is “the survival of the fittest “and an indifference to suffering. The “natural events” mankind fears most all involve the potential for significant loss of life and for injury.

    The Earth is a beautiful place, but it is utterly merciless. Man has learned to adapt to it and, by adapt, I mean to use its resources to build shelter and protection from it, to plant and harvest crops from it, and to domesticate some of its species while hunting and fishing for others for food.

    NEW YORK—Federal authorities conducted a raid Wednesday of the offices of a Bronx not-for-profit corporation that New York State Senate Majority Leader Pedro Espada Jr. was accused of looting in a civil lawsuit Tuesday.

    Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service served search warrants and began conducting a search of Soundview Healthcare Network in the Bronx about 7 a.m. Wednesday.

    James Margolin, a New York FBI spokesman, said the search is in connection with an ongoing investigation. He declined to give details as to the subject of the investigation.

    Joseph Foy, an IRS spokesman, said agents were “there on official business” and declined further comment.

    A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan said the office policy is to neither confirm or deny an investigation.

    New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo sued Mr. Espada and 19 current and former officers and directors of Soundview, alleging Mr. Espada, who serves as Soundview’s president and chief executive, siphoned more than $14 million from the not-for-profit in the past five years.
