Unite or Die

Cross posted from Snooper's Journal.

By Loki

Abortion! Illegal immigration! Homosexual unions! And many more issues. These are all issues that have the Conservative movement energized. But, each issue has the attention of just a small part of the movement. Each issue has its own little group that feels that is the most important issue. 

These groups fight to get candidates that support their issue and spar with the supporters of the other candidates. There is no co-operation between them. There is no cohesion in the Conservative movement, let alone the Republican Party. How do we who see all these issues as important to the American culture convince the others to get together and fight as a whole unit, instead of a fragmented and divided force? Is there one issue, that if corrected, that would make all the other issues fade away? I believe there is.

The vast majority of these issues do not belong in the halls of the Federal Government. They belong, exclusively, in the states. Few issues, such as illegal immigration, are federal issues. All we need to do is to get the Federal Government out of the issues that belong to the States and not to the Feds. Sound difficult? Not really. All it takes is to get the Government to follow the United States Constitution.

There is a movement out there to do just that. This is a movement among the states to reaffirm their sovereignty over the Federal Government. The State Legislatures are bringing forth Resolutions reaffirming their sovereignty over the Federal Government, in accordance with Amendment X of the United States Constitution. There are also “Tea Parties” springing up all over this country. People are protesting the Unconstitutional way that tax dollars are being recklessly strewn around. 

They are demanding the return to our Constitutional Republic. That will limit the power of the Federal Government. What does that mean for most of the issues that people have? The power to deal with them will revert back to the States, and will be dealt with by the “People”. Now we can spend our resources electing Representatives and Senators that will adhere to the United States Constitution. One issue. We get our Republic back and the people get their power back. Now they can concentrate on returning their State Government to do the bidding of the people. 

So, instead of worrying about these issues that we feel are the most important to us, let’s just concentrate on one. If we fight individual battles we will be defeated at every turn. If we are to put all of our resources into one fight, getting our Constitutional Republic back, we will be a power to be reckoned with. Once that is accomplished all the other issues will go away as the people reassert their power within their state. Think about it. It is much easier for the people in South Dakota to determine how they want their state to be governed without having to deal with how the Representatives from California think it should be governed. 

As James Madison stated in Federalist 45; “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the Federal Government, are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State Governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will for the most part be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties and properties of the people; and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.” 

The time is now folks. People in this country, on both sides of the political spectrum, are fed up with what is going on. It is time to take our Republic and give it back to the people. Unite or we will see the end of our Republic and the establishment of The People’s Republic of America.

He was numbered with the transgressors

Morning & Evening by C.H. Spurgeon

"He was numbered with the transgressors."
Isaiah 53:12

Why did Jesus suffer Himself to be enrolled amongst sinners? This wonderful condescension was justified by many powerful reasons. In such a character He could the better become their advocate. In some trials there is an identification of the counsellor with the client, nor can they be looked upon in the eye of the law as apart from one another.

Now, when the sinner is brought to the bar, Jesus appears there Himself. Hefeel their hearts drawn towards Him. Who can be afraid of one who is written in the same list with us? Surely we may come boldly to Him, and confess our guilt. He who is numbered with us cannot condemn us. Was He not put down in the transgressor's list that we might be written in the red roll of the saints? He was holy, and written among the holy; we were guilty, and numbered among the guilty; He transfers His name from yonder list to this black indictment, and our names are taken from the indictment and written in the roll of acceptance, for there is a complete transfer made between Jesus and His people,stands to answer the accusation.

He points to His side, His hands, His feet, and challenges Justice to bring anything against the sinners whom He represents; He pleads His blood, and pleads so triumphantly, being numbered with them and having a part with them, that the Judge proclaims, "Let them go their way; deliver them from going down into the pit, for He hath found a ransom." Our Lord Jesus was numbered with the transgressors in order that they might

All our estate of misery and sin Jesus has taken; and all that Jesus has comes to us. His righteousness, His blood, and everything that He hath He gives us as our dowry. Rejoice, believer, in your union to Him who was numbered among the transgressors; and prove that you are truly saved by being manifestly numbered with those who are new creatures in Him.

From OneNewsNow: Planned Parenthood Honors Hillary Clinton

Planned Parenthood honors Hillary Clinton

HOUSTON - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has told a Planned Parenthood convention that reproductive rights, as well as women's rights and empowerment, are key issues in President Barack Obama's foreign policy.

Clinton vowed her support for these issues during a speech Friday evening at the Planned Parenthood's national conference in Houston.

She was honored by Planned Parenthood...the nation's leading abortionist.... with its Margaret Sanger Award, the organization's highest honor, for her work throughout her public service career on behalf of women's health and reproductive rights.

Clinton said these rights are building blocks of democracy as societies that deny and demean women's roles are ones more likely to engage in behavior that is negative, antidemocratic and that leads to violence and extremism.

But local T.V. station, KHOU, reports that while applause welcomed Clinton inside the crowded ballroom, outside pro-life activists were holding a vigil.

It says among the hundreds of demonstrators who stood praying for an end to abortion was Sheila Theisen.

She said “We want this administration to know that we don’t want to pay for the death of all these children."

Planned Parenthood receives hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding every year.

“There’s no reason to be killing children. There’s no reason,” Theisen said.

Secretary Clinton started her day in Washington, where she and the President announced the administration’s new direction in Afghanistan. One priority, she said, is ensuring the expansion of women’s rights there.

Move America Forward: Now We Are Going To Give Terrorists Welfare

We’re not just letting terrorists GO FREE
We’re going to give them WELFARE!


Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, Dennis Blair, echoed yesterday the same eventuality that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder admitted, and that Move America Forward has been warning about for months now. Terrorist detainees from Guantanamo Bay are LIKELY coming to America.

Not only that, but Blair went as far as to discuss all the wonderful things we are going to do for these terrorists, besides giving them the privilege of our American court system, it’s endless appeals process, and the same constitutional rights as a natural born citizen. Now they are already talking about access to public assistance!

It is almost hard to believe. We have to check our facts because we are stunned at the outrageous decisions being made by President Obama that affects our national security.

“We need some sort of assistance for them to start a new life,” Blair said at a press conference, “You can’t just put them on the street. All that is WORK IN PROGRESS.” He’s not talking about hard-working Americans; he is talking about the terrorists that are locked up at the Detention Facility at Gitmo.

Not only does Obama want to give some of the terrorists their freedom, but now welfare, public subsidized housing, healthcare, free education, child care, job training, the list goes on! Why not just give the terrorists the keys to the White House and get it over with?

MAF is preparing a public backlash in the form of TV ads, protests , and other avenues.
Here is a TV AD we produced last month, which we are trying to get on national TV

Please help us put together the 10,000+ dollars
we will need to get this ad on TV nationwide!

Eric Holder and now Dennis Blair have been slowly acknowledging this possibility now, seemingly to get the American people ready for Obama’s final announcement of the horrible truth - that terrorists WILL INDEED be brought from Gitmo to our homeland.


In a Fox News poll conducted by Opinion Dynamics and released on January 29th, 63% said that Obama’s order to close Gitmo without a plan for what to do with the terrorists there was a BAD idea!

In that same poll 52% responded AGAINST bringing terrorists here to the United States and a whopping 63% said they didn’t want terrorists held in their community.

Since that time many communities such as Ft. Leavenworth Kansas, San Diego, CA (Camp Pendleton USMC) and others have expressed disapproval at the prospect of moving terrorists into their areas. Representatives of many of those places where terrorists might end up, have also proposed legislation to stop any federal funds for the purposes of putting terrorist detainees in their communities.

American Cities and Towns are No Place to Resettle Terrorists

Americans are BOILING OVER in anger at the very thought of Obama bringing terrorists from Gitmo into OUR neighborhoods, giving them American trials and allo
wing them to twist the legal system with ACLU-style lawyers and walk out free men on American soil!

And in our tough economic times, when the government passes 800 BILLION DOLLAR SPENDING BILLS and keeps coming back FOR MORE, it’s understandable that people will be upset that President OBAMA now wants to use YOUR MONEY to pay TERRORISTS to live free and clear here in America!

Obama has lost perspective with his concern about rights for terrorists.
He should be concerned about the safely of Americans.

Please make a contribution to our campaign to KEEP GITMO OPEN but more importantly KEEP THESE TERRORISTS OFF AMERICAN SOIL!

Conservative Bloggers Now Labeled “Domestic Terrorists”?

H/T Faultline USA.

by Barbara Sowell at Digital Journal

The Glenn Beck TV program Friday night mentioned a secret law enforcement report “The Modern Militia Movement,” which was distributed by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) and was obtained by Alex Jones of Prison Planet.

According to Beck, if you ever supported a third party, you might be considered a domestic terrorist!

The original report, which has been confirmed by Lt. John Hotz of the Missouri State Highway Patrol as coming from MIAC, can be read at Prison Planet. Be sure to double click on each page thumbnail for a full enlargement.

After reading the report I would imagine that just about every conservative blogger I’m familiar with would fall into the MIAC domestic terrorist watch list.

This report is very frightening stuff. The MIAC report appears to be a simplistic linking or “fusion” of leftist anti-conservative mythology and stereotyping to the militia movement. Although deadly serious, the report deserves nothing less than wide-spread mocking derision.

Did you ever write about or support Ron Paul or Bob Barr? Well, then, you might be a terrorist.

Are you a Libertarian? Well, then, you might be a terrorist.

Have you ever written about the U.S. Constitution? Well, then, you might be a terrorist.

Have you ever called yourself a “patriot”? Well, then, you might be a terrorist.

Are you a conservative Christian who “clings to guns” and the American flag? Well, then, you might be a terrorist.

Do you plan on attending an April 15th Tea Party? Well, then, you might be a terrorist.

Have you displayed any unusual looking American flags or other Early American flags on your blog? Well then, you might be a terrorist.

Have you ever written about taxes, the Federal Reserve, the New World Order, the North American Union, the Sovereignty movement, Illegal Immigration, or the Trans-Texas Corridor? Well, then, you might be a terrorist!

Paging Jeff Foxworthy!!! Paging Jeff Foxworthy!!! Where are you Jeff? We need you. Hey Jeff it’s time for a new comedy tour, and another book.

Here’s an excerpt article from The Columbia Daily Tribune ‘Fusion center’ data draws fire over assertions'.

Blogs and Web sites frequented by people interested in civil liberties issues have been overloaded in recent days with comments from angry readers who view the document as a precursor to an American KGB spying on U.S. citizens. . .  
The government is out of control, we are just trying to survive,” wrote one poster who identified himself as John Adams.  
But state law enforcement officials said the report is being misinterpreted. Lt. John Hotz of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said the report was compiled by the Missouri Information Analysis Center based in Jefferson City and comes purely from publically available, trend data on militias. . .  
At a “Tea Party” to protest wasteful government spending Thursday in Flat Branch Park, several people displaying the Revolutionary War-replica “Don’t Tread On Me” flag were upset to learn the MIAC report lists the banner as a “militia symbol.”  
“That’s insane,” said Doug Wendt looking at the MIAC document. “That is not a militia symbol. That is American history. This is historic. The only animosity” American colonists “ever directed with this was towards England.”
Here’s the introductory excerpt from Prison Planet about the origin of the MIAC report.
Alex Jones has received a secret report distributed by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) entitled “The Modern Militia Movement” and dated February 20, 2009. A footer on the document indicates it is “unclassified” but “law enforcement sensitive,” in other words not for public consumption. A copy of the report was sent to Jones by an anonymous Missouri police officer.

The MIAC report specifically describes supporters of presidential candidates Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr as “militia” influenced terrorists and instructs the Missouri police to be on the lookout for supporters displaying bumper stickers and other paraphernalia associated with the Constitutional, Campaign for Liberty, and Libertarian parties. . . .

“Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) provides a public safety partnership consisting of local, state and federal agencies, as well as the public sector and private entities that will collect, evaluate, analyze, and disseminate information and intelligence to the agencies tasked with Homeland Security responsibilities in a timely, effective, and secure manner,” explains the MIAC website . . .

Hat Tip to Delaware Libertarian for spotting this at the end of the report:
There is also this note at the end:
Comments regarding this alert may be made to Brandon.middleton@mshp.dps.mo.gov  
Comments on previous MIAC strategic alerts or ideas for research on future strategic products should be made to Greg.hug@mshp.dps.mo.gov
Well that just about sums up the most ridiculous thing I've read to date. You know I've been labeled many things over the years I've lived in this country but "domestic terrorist"? Please.

Then again what else do we expect from left wing sociopath's?

I love this country and everything it stands for. The Constitution as written is a revered document given to us by inspired men of God. This country was founded on a Republic. Disagree with me if you want but you had better read the founding fathers documents including the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, and all the rest. I have. Many times.
The oath I swore so many years ago to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America from all enemies foreign and domestic, now makes me a domestic terrorist?

If that's the path this government and it's sniveling minions have chosen to go down then so be it.
Label me anything you like if it floats your boat or gives ya that tingle down your leg.

If you think you might be a "domestic terrorist" based on the above and have a blog, then you too can become a charter member of the Domestic Terrorist Bloggers Network

Unheeded Warnings: Our Road To Hell Was Paved With Evil Intentions - With Video

DC Examiner:

On Spending and the Deficit, McCain Was Right

By Byron York

Barack Obama used to get very upset about federal budget deficits. Denouncing an “orgy of spending and enormous deficits,” he turned to John McCain during their presidential debates last fall and said, “We have had, over the last eight years, the biggest increases in deficit spending and national debt in our history…Now we have a half-trillion deficit annually…and Sen. McCain voted for four out of five of those George Bush budgets.”

That was then. Now, President Obama is asking lawmakers to vote for a budget with a deficit three times the size of the one that so disturbed candidate Obama just a few months ago. And Obama foresees, for years to come, deficits that dwarf those he felt so passionately about way, way back in 2008.

Everywhere you go on Capitol Hill, you hear echoes of the last campaign’s spending debate. So on Thursday morning, as the budget fight raged, I asked McCain about the president’s seemingly forgotten concern about deficits. McCain doesn’t like to rehash the campaign — “The one thing Americans don’t like is a sore loser,” he told me — but when I read him Obama’s quote from the debate, he said, “Well, there are a number of statements that were made by then-candidate Obama which have not translated into his policies.”

That’s an understatement. The deficit issue could be one of the most, if not the most, consequential of Obama’s unkept campaign promises. Just how consequential was made clear last week in a little-noticed conference call featuring Budget Director Peter Orszag. Orszag was trying to explain to reporters how the Obama administration calculated its rather rosy forecasts for economic growth. Near the end of the call, he was asked whether deficits along the lines of those predicted by the Congressional Budget Office are sustainable.”

Orszag at first dodged the question, saying he was sure the final Obama budget will “reflect a fiscally sustainable path.” But the questioner persisted: Are those deficits sustainable? Relenting, Orszag said such deficits, in the range of five percent of the Gross Domestic Product, “would lead to rising debt-to-GDP ratios in a manner that would ultimately not be sustainable.”

The simple version of that is: If the Congressional Budget Office projections are correct, we’re headed for hell in a handbasket.

I asked McCain what might happen if Obama and Orszag get their way. First, the U.S. could have to print a lot of new money, “running the huge risk of inflation and returning to the situation of the 1970s, only far worse,” McCain said. The second option is to raise taxes.

Just this week, former Clinton budget director Alice Rivlin conceded that Obama’s budget could present a “scary scenario” that would “raise deficits to unsustainable levels well after the economy recovers.” The solution, she wrote, is higher taxes, and not just for the richest of the rich.

Of course, that’s what McCain said during the campaign. And it’s what the much-maligned Joe the Plumber said, too. Remember when he took so much flak for objecting to Obama’s plan to raise taxes only on those Americans making more than $250,000 a year? Joe didn’t make anything near that, the critics said, so why was he worrying?

The point was not that Joe made that much, or that anybody at McCain’s rallies made that much — the vast majority didn’t. The point was that Obama was promising so many things that to pay for them he would eventually have to raise taxes on people making far less than $250,000. Look out, McCain warned — someday he’ll come after you.

And now that’s where we appear to be headed. At some point, Obama will likely have to bow to those in his party who say he must raise taxes if he wants to pay for health care and other expensive initiatives.
Some skeptics believe that was the plan all along. McCain wouldn’t go that far, but when I brought up the idea, he did sound a bit suspicious. “Well, you set up a situation that puts spending at an unprecedented amount of GDP, and then you turn around and say, ‘Of course we’re going to have to raise taxes to pay for this,’” McCain told me. “I’m not saying it was their plan, but it certainly was inevitable.”

"I'm Tired"

H/T  drillanwr/Dollard.

Courtesy of Black Five.

by Robert A. Hall

I’ll be 63 soon. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce, and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years.

I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.

I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth around” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy or stupid to earn it.

I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.” Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I’m willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them-with their own money.

I’m tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros, and Hollywood entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the religious freedom and women’s rights of Saudi Arabia , the economy of Zimbabwe, the freedom of the press of China , the crime, and violence of Mexico, the tolerance for Gay people of Iran , and the freedom of speech of Venezuela . Won’t multiculturalism be beautiful?

I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor;” of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers;” of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery;” of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.

I believe “a man should be judged by the content of his character, not by the color of his skin.” I’m tired of being told that “race doesn’t matter” in the post-racial world of President Obama, when it’s all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of US Senators from Illinois. I think it’s very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the emancipation proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less in an all-knowing government.

I’m tired of a news media that thinks Bush’s fundraising and inaugural expenses were obscene, but that think Obama’s, at triple the cost, were wonderful. That thinks Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time, but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control weight and stress, that picked over every line of Bush’s military records, but never demanded that Kerry release his, that slammed Palin with two years as governor for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with three years as senator as potentially the best president ever. Wonder why people are dropping their subscriptions or switching to Fox News? Get a clue. I didn’t vote for Bush in 2000, but the media and Kerry drove me to his camp in 2004.

I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America, while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue, or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s, and if you’re greener than Gore, you’re green enough.

I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I don’t think Gay people choose to be Gay, but I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I’m tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.

I’m tired of illegal aliens being called “undocumented workers,” especially the ones who aren’t working, but are living on welfare or crime. What’s next? Calling drug dealers, Undocumented Pharmacists”? And, no, I’m not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic and it’s been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I’m willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn’t have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military. Those are the citizens we need.

I’m tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people then themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years-and still are? Not even close. So here’s the deal. I’ll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we’ll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.

I’m tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers-bums are bipartisan. And I’m tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois , where the “Illinois Combine” of Democrats and Republicans has worked together harmoniously to loot the public for years. And I notice that the tax cheats in Obama’s cabinet are bipartisan as well.

I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers, and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

Speaking of poor, I’m tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TV s and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn’t have that in 1970, but we didn’t know we were “poor.” The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination, or big-whatever for their problems.

Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I’m not going to get to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter.

Barack Obama is NOT America. Really he isn’t.

Before anyone gets their knickers in a knot, this is not about politics, but it IS about how I see America; America the Beautiful.

Sure, Barack Obama MAY be the American President, the public face of America, but he is NOT the America I know and love. Once upon a time, when I was a little girl in England (okay, littler,) the first time I was aware of the iconography surrounding any US President was when the shots that killed JFK echoed around the world. In my naivete I thought JFK WAS America and dreaded what would happen to America as a result of his assassination. As Americans know better than I, those were tumultuous days in the USA, but America survived and thrived.

Just as some Americans spent the eight years of George W. Bush’s presidency being the quintessential “ugly Americans” that the msm loved to give air time to; just as loud mouthed Americans screamed abuse and blame on Bush for everything they perceived as wrong with their own lives - and their country - so, too, today, do I hear a lot of despair about America from Americans. Even as the world – with the cheerleading msm leading the parade – hey, America is not that bad, they are now a kinder, gentler country because they elected the Obama camp - I see beyond that current resident of the White House. The world may think Obama IS America. He is not, just as NO president is America, but merely the PUBLIC face of a country.

I believe America is the mother in New York who struggles through her own agony to comfort her pre-teen daughter as she mourns the unexpected loss of her two adult children within weeks of each other.

America is the tearful veteran who struggles with losing the family farm in the farmland of America; the farm which his ancestors had nurtured for generations, and which his father had entrusted to his safety.

To me, America is the newly created grandmothers, seeing all of America’s future in their grandchildren's eyes. One creates baby formula from scratch, and the other joyfully takes her grandchild from the new parents for the weekend. They see no punishment in the birth of these littlest Americans.

The world may see only the President of America, but I see the single mum, who, because of an extensive education that she paid for herself, moves across country to a great job, to give her teenage son a slice of the American dream, that is available to all willing to work for it.

A few decades ago, another Canadian journalist broadcast a radio piece that he had written about America. Gordon Sinclair said, in part:

When the Americans get out of this bind -- as they will -- who could blame them if they said "the hell with the rest of the world." Let somebody else buy the Israel bonds. Let somebody else build or repair foreign dams, or design foreign buildings that won't shake apart in earthquakes." When the railways of France, and Germany, and India were breaking down through age, it was the Americans who rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central went broke, nobody loaned them an old caboose. Both of 'em are still broke.

I can name to you 5,000 times when the Americans raced to the help of other people in trouble. Can you name to me even one time when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't think there was outside help even during the San Francisco earthquake.

Our neighbors have faced it alone, and I am one Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them kicked around. They'll come out of this thing with their flag high. And when they do, they're entitled to thumb their noses at the lands that are gloating over their present troubles. ...

God bless you Aunty.

Another Soldier Has Been Given the Haditha Treatment!

H/T Snooper.

Government withholds evidence to imprison another soldier. The forensic findings alone doesn't support 1st Lt. Behanna's conviction.

This is more evidence of the eviscerated JAG corp using rules from the Saul Alinsky "play book". Persecute, prosecute, demonize, demoralize, and falsely convict citizens, in this case an Army Officer.

DEFEND Michael. 

On March 20th, 2009, 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing a known Al Qaeda operative while serving in Iraq. The “victim”, Ali Mansur, was known to be a member of an Al Qaeda cell operating in the lieutenant’s area of operation, and was suspected to have organized an attack on Lt. Behenna’s platoon in April 2008 which killed two U.S. soldiers and injured two more. Army intelligence ordered the release of Mansur and Lt. Behenna was ordered to return the terrorist to his home.

During the return of Mansur, Lt. Behenna again questioned the Al Qaeda member for information about other members of the terrorist cell, and financial supporters. During this interrogation, Mansur attacked Lt. Behenna, who killed the terrorist in self-defense. The government subsequently prosecuted Lt. Behenna for premeditated murder.

Not only is this a miscarriage of justice on the behalf of Lt. Behenna, who was acting to prevent further loss of life in his platoon, it is demoralizing to the U.S. troops who continue to fight on behalf of the freedom and security of our nation. Whether it is U.S. border patrol agents, members of the armed forces, or FBI agents, no individual who is serving on the frontlines in the War on Terror should be so blatantly mistreated.

We urgently need your help to correct this terrible wrong against a loyal and faithful soldier. Please contact your congressman and ask them to intervene on behalf of 1LT Behenna. Below is a brief recap of the relevant aspects of Lt. Behenna’s case.
  • September 2007: 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna deployed to Iraq for his first combat experience
  • April 21, 2008: Lt. Behenna’s platoon was attacked by Al Qaeda operatives. The attack resulted in death of two of Lt. Behenna’s platoon members, two Iraqi citizens, and wounded two additional soldiers under Lt. Behenna’s command.
  • May 5, 2008: Known terrorist Ali Mansur was detained at his home for suspected involvement in the attack on Lt. Behenna’s platoon
  • May 16, 2008: Army Intelligence orders the release of Mansur
  • Lt. Behenna, who lost two members of his platoon just weeks earlier, was ordered to transport Mansur back to his home
  • Lt. Behenna attempts a final interrogation of Mansur prior to his release
  • During the interrogation, Behenna is attacked by Mansur and is forced to defend himself. During the altercation, the terrorist is killed.
  • Lt. Behenna failed to properly report the incident
  • July 2008: The U.S. Army charges Lt. Behenna with premeditated murder for the death of Al Qaeda operative and terrorist Ali Mansur.
  • February 23, 2009: Lt. Behenna’s trial begins
  • Government and defense experts agree on the trajectory of the bullets killing Mansur
  • Prosecution expert Dr. Herbert MacDonnell initiated contact with defense attorneys explaining his agreement with the testimony of Lt. Behenna and his presentation to prosecutors supporting Lt. Behenna’s version of events.
  • Dr. MacDonnell is not called to testify in the case
  • Jack Zimmermann, defense counsel, asks prosecutors if they have any exculpatory evidence that should be provided to the defense (referring to Dr. MacDonnell’s demonstration). Prosecutors deny having any such evidence.
  • Prosecutors withholding of this evidence allowed them to argue that Lt. Behenna executed Ali Mansur while seated when the forensic experts, including Dr. MacDonnell, agree that Ali was standing with his arms outstretched when shot
  • Lt. Behenna is convicted of unpremeditated murder and assault.
  • Dr. MacDonnell contacts prosecution requesting that the information provided in his demonstration be given to the defense.
  • Prosecutors provide such information after a verdict was rendered, but prior to sentencing.
  • At the request of the presiding judge, Dr. MacDonnell provides his information to the court via telephone
  • The judge orders both sides in the case to file briefs relating to a possible mistrial
  • After reading the briefs the judge set an additional hearing and ordered additional briefs, including one from the defense requesting a new trial.
  • On March 20, the judge denied defense motions to declare a mistrial and to order a new trial
  • Lt. Behenna’s attorneys are appealing the verdict
  • Lt. Behenna is currently serving a 25-year sentence
1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was an excellent officer. He received his call to serve his country while attending the University of Central Oklahoma. He is from a family of public servants, his mother being an Assistant United States Attorney and his father a retired Special Agent with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. He has served the Army and the United States with honor and dignity. To sacrifice the life of this Oklahoma soldier over the death of a known terrorist, is a breech of faith with all who are serving our country.

"Then all the disciples forsook Him and fled."

"Then all the disciples forsook Him and fled."

Matthew 26:56

He never deserted them, but they in cowardly fear of their lives, fled from Him in the very beginning of His sufferings. This is but one instructive instance of the frailty of all believers if left to themselves; they are but sheep at the best, and they flee when the wolf cometh. They had all been warned of the danger, and had promised to die rather than leave their Master; and yet they were seized with sudden panic, and took to their heels.

It may be, that I, at the opening of this day, have braced up my mind to bear a trial for the Lord's sake, and I imagine myself to be certain to exhibit perfect fidelity; but let me be very jealous of myself, lest having the same evil heart of unbelief, I should depart from my Lord as the apostles did. It is one thing to promise, and quite another to perform.

It would have been to their eternal honour to have stood at Jesus' side right manfully; they fled from honour; may I be kept from imitating them! Where else could they have been so safe as near their Master, who could presently call for twelve legions of angels? They fled from their true safety. O God, let me not play the fool also.

Divine grace can make the coward brave. The smoking flax can flame forth like fire on the altar when the Lord wills it. These very apostles who were timid as hares, grew to be bold as lions after the Spirit had descended upon them, and even so the Holy Spirit can make my recreant spirit brave to confess my Lord and witness for His truth.

What anguish must have filled the Saviour as He saw His friends so faithless! This was one bitter ingredient in His cup; but that cup is drained dry; let me not put another drop in it. If I forsake my Lord, I shall crucify Him afresh, and put Him to an open shame. Keep me, O blessed Spirit, from an end so shameful.

Californians to Ban the Color Black for Cars

Auto Blog:

California to reduce carbon emissions by… banning black cars?!

by Jeremy Korzeniewski

In a move that will likely get California’s consumers in a huff, impending legislation may soon restrict the paint color options for Golden State residents looking for their next new vehicle. The specific colors that are currently on the chopping block are all dark hues, with the worst offender seemingly the most innocuous color you could think of: Black. What could California possibly have against these colors, you ask? Apparently, the California Air Resources Board figures that the climate control systems of dark colored cars need to work harder than their lighter siblings – especially after sitting in the sun for a few hours. Anyone living in a hot, sunny climate will tell you that this assumption is accurate, of course. In fact, legislation already exists for buildings that has proven successful at reducing the energy consumption of skyscrapers.

So, what’s the crux of the problem… can’t paint suppliers just come up with new, less heat-absorbent dark paints? According to Ward’s, suppliers have reportedly been testing their pigments and processes to see if it’s possible to meet CARB’s proposed mandate of 20% solar reflectivity by 2016 with a phase-in period starting in 2012, and things aren’t looking good. Apparently, when the proper pigments and chemicals are added to black paint, the resulting color is currently being referred to as “mud-puddle brown.” That doesn’t sound very attractive, now does it? Windshields, backlights and sunroofs are also slated to get reflective coatings starting in 2012.

When we first heard of this issue, an internal debate immediately began as to whether this might be an elaborate early April Fool’s joke, but it isn’t. Read through CARB’s complete Cool Cars Standards and Test Procedures here (PDF link) for more.

Is it any wonder Californians are leaving the state in historic numbers? Just add this one to the already huge list of lunatic policy making. Do you think they will allow exemptions for Hollywierdo's and politicians?

Poem: There Is Only One God

There is only one GOD

Our one GOD should always be first on our mind,
and if we do, then going through live we will find.

That our GOD and His Son, is all that we need,
when it is on the word of GOD that we daily feed.

Jesus is the one that we should put all our faith in,
since GOD had His Son die for all the world's sin.

I do not fear death, my faith is in your staff and rod,
I know Jesus is my Savior, and you are my GOD.

Glenn Beck "Let me tell you who I am"

submitted by Trevor:

Glenn Beck
FOX News host Glenn Beck opens up to his viewers about everything from his opinions on politics, faith in God and being a recovering alcoholic during a recent segment of his television program where he said. "The media is telling you not to trust me"

During this 15 minute segment Beck told his audience that the media is trying to make him look like "crazy person" and told his viewers that he was not doing this for ratings and when he first started it was "All fun" until it started to matter.

Here's the full video:

Also, here are the two video clips from the movie "Network" which were used during Glenn Becks segment above.

A Christian Music History Lesson

submitted by Trevor:

The year was 1982 and Christian music singer Amy Grant had a piano player in her band by the name of Michael Whitaker Smith. A struggling Christian songwriter needed a way to make some money so he agreed to be in the background as part of a band never wanting to perform himself.

One of his first songs he wrote was called "How Majestic Is Your Name", It was to be understood that the song would be recorded and released by a popular Christian artist at that time by the name of Sandi Patty.

However there were a few occasions where this songwriter would let Amy Grant (his boss) perform these songs. This video captured one of those moments.

Needless to say that this songwriter who played piano the background for a Christian band would soon be encouraged to go out on his own and perform his music. Thus Michael Whitaker Smith became Michael W. Smith and the rest was history.

The LORD truly works in mysterious ways.

NOTE: Watch closely you will see a very young Michael W. Smith playing piano and singing background vocals.

If ye seek Me, let these go their way.

Jesus said unto them, "If ye seek Me, let these go their way." John 18:8

Mark, my soul, the care which Jesus manifested even in His hour of trial, towards the sheep of His hand! The ruling passion is strong in death. He resigns Himself to the enemy, but He interposes a word of power to set His disciples free. As to Himself, like a sheep before her shearers He is dumb and opened not His mouth, but for His disciples' sake He speaks with Almighty energy.

Herein is love, constant, self-forgetting, faithful love.
But is there not far more here than is to be found upon the surface? Have we not the very soul and spirit of the atonement in these words? The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep, and pleads that they must therefore go free. The Surety is bound, and justice demands that those for whom He stands a substitute should go their way. In the midst of Egypt's bondage, that voice rings as a word of power, "Let these go their way."

Out of slavery of sin and Satan the redeemed must come. In every cell of the dungeons of Despair, the sound is echoed, "Let these go their way," and forth come Despondency and Much-afraid. Satan hears the well-known voice, and lifts his foot from the neck of the fallen; and Death hears it, and the grave opens her gates to let the dead arise.

Their way is one of progress, holiness, triumph, glory, and none shall dare to stay them in it. No lion shall be on their way, neither shall any ravenous beast go up thereon. "The hind of the morning" has drawn the cruel hunters upon himself, and now the most timid roes and hinds of the field may graze at perfect peace among the lilies of his loves.

The thunder-cloud has burst over the Cross of Calvary, and the pilgrims of Zion shall never be smitten by the bolts of vengeance. Come, my heart, rejoice in the immunity which thy Redeemer has secured thee, and bless His name all the day, and every day.

Bail Outs, Frauds and Neo Marxists

Cross posted from Snooper's Journal.

With all of the hype from the Neo Marxists with their main puppet on a string the Imam of Obam, it turns out that Goldman Sachs would not have needed a "bail out" if AIG had been allowed to fail in a Free Market society.
In an email alert, I received the following: (emphasis added by me)
So if we didn't avert a banking crisis with the AIG bailout, what exactly have the taxpayers gotten for their $170 billion? Well, nothing so far. But here's the list of the top four beneficiaries of the AIG bailout:

   1. Goldman Sachs: $12.9 billion

   2. Société Générale (France) $11.9 billion

   3. Deutsche Bank (Germany) $11.8 billion

   4. Barclays (United Kingdom) $7.9 billion

This is the real scandal of the AIG bailout.

Add the other TARP funds Goldman Sachs received to the AIG pass-through money and you get an astounding total of $23 billion from the taxpayers.

All for a company that now says it never needed help to begin with.

If that's not a reason to come to a Tax Day Tea Party on April 15, I don't know what is.
Simply amazing.  Legalized money laundering and congressional sanctioning of RICO violations and law breaking is what our federal government has become.
The latest revelation is perhaps the worst yet.

Remember how the Paulson-Geithner-Bernanke bailout of AIG was initially sold to the American people? We were told that failing to prop up the firm with taxpayer dollars would let loose a cascading failure of the entire banking system.

It turns out that this was never exactly true.

That's right. Goldman Sachs Chief Financial Officer David Viniar announced last week that his firm never needed the taxpayers' help after all. Goldman Sachs, it turns out, wouldn't have failed if AIG had been allowed to fail.

The reason Viniar made the announcement was to divert the public's attention from allegations that Goldman profited handsomely from the bailout of AIG.

But in trying to tamp down one scandal, Viniar has revealed another: The ground on which Paulson, Geithner and Bernanke sold the $170 billion AIG bailout was - at least partially - a lie.
A lie.  I remember screaming that the entire "economic meltdown" was a carefully orchestrated lie to cover up the real deal and that read deal is this: the Neo Marxists in DC want our economy to fail, plain and simple and they do whatever is required to make it happen.  They are under the assumption that True American Patriots will roll over and play nice-nice.

I am from Texas and we have a saying down here: gitarope.

If they, the Neo Marxists, think for one second that True American Patriots are going to roll over while they shred and make null and void our Constitution, they are sorely mistaken.

Bush Deficit Vs. Obama Deficit

H/T drillanwr at Dollard's.

Heritage Foundation:

Bush Deficit vs. Obama Deficit in Pictures

President Barak Obama has repeatedly claimed that his budget would cut the deficit by half by the end of his term. But as Heritage analyst Brian Riedl has pointed out, given that Obama has already helped quadruple the deficit with his stimulus package, pledging to halve it by 2013 is hardly ambitious. The Washington Post has a great graphic which helps put President Obama’s budget deficits in context of President Bush’s.

What’s driving Obama’s unprecedented massive deficits? Spending. Riedl details:

- President Bush expanded the federal budget by a historic $700 billion through 2008. President Obama would add another $1 trillion.

- President Bush began a string of expensive finan­cial bailouts. President Obama is accelerating that course.

- President Bush created a Medicare drug entitle­ment that will cost an estimated $800 billion in its first decade. President Obama has proposed a $634 billion down payment on a new govern­ment health care fund.

- President Bush increased federal education spending 58 percent faster than inflation. Presi­dent Obama would double it.

- President Bush became the first President to spend 3 percent of GDP on federal antipoverty programs. President Obama has already in­creased this spending by 20 percent.

- President Bush tilted the income tax burden more toward upper-income taxpayers. President Obama would continue that trend.

- President Bush presided over a $2.5 trillion increase in the public debt through 2008. Setting aside 2009 (for which Presidents Bush and Obama share responsibility for an additional $2.6 trillion in public debt), President Obama’s budget would add $4.9 trillion in public debt from the beginning of 2010 through 2016.


This is part of the change sponge-bama promised.This is change we DO NOT NEED!

Bush made several mistakes, but unemployment was below 4% in 2005, the economy was booming, the deficit was actually being reduced, the stock market was at record highs and confident, and he was in the middle of a war. And all this even with a Democrat majority in CONgress from 2006 on.
Bush may have been "bad" according to you leftist reprobates but, it is clear to me and many others that Obama and his den of thieves are rapidly becoming this countries worst nightmare.

Current unemployment rate is currently 9.5%, already on par with the worst recession since the Great Depression. Read more here; Unemployment Rate On Par With 1982 Recession.

Betrayest thou the Son of Man with a kiss

Morning & Evening by C.H. Spurgeon

"Betrayest thou the Son of Man with a kiss?"Luke 22:48

The kisses of an enemy are deceitful." Let me be on my guard when the world puts on a loving face, for it will, if possible, betray me as it did my Master, with a kiss.

Whenever a man is about to stab religion, he usually professes very great reverence for it. Let me beware of the sleek-faced hypocrisy which is armour-bearer to heresy and infidelity.

Knowing the deceivableness of unrighteousness, let me be wise as a serpent to detect and avoid the designs of the enemy. The young man, void of understanding, was led astray by the kiss of the strange woman: may my soul be so graciously instructed all this day, that "the much fair speech" of the world may have no effect upon me.

Holy Spirit, let me not, a poor frail son of man, be betrayed with a kiss!

But what if I should be guilty of the same accursed sin as Judas, that son of perdition? I have been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus; I am a member of His visible Church; I sit at the communion table: all these are so many kisses of my lips.

I sincere in them? If not, I am a base traitor. Do I live in the world as carelessly as others do, and yet make a profession of being a follower of Jesus? Then I must expose religion to ridicule, and lead men to speak evil of the holy name by which I am called.

Surely if I act thus inconsistently I am a Judas, and it were better for me that I had never been born. Dare I hope that I am clear in this matter? Then, O Lord, keep me so. O Lord, make me sincere and true.

Preserve me from every false way. Never let me betray my Saviour. I do love Thee, Jesus, and though I often grieve Thee, yet I would desire to abide faithful even unto death. O God, forbid that I should be a high-soaring professor, and then fall at last into the lake of fire, because I betrayed my Master with a kiss.

Obama, "Right Thing To Do and The Ethical Thing To Do?"

{President Obama says lifting a federal ban on embryonic stem cell research with the "right thing to do and the ethical thing to do." The Democrat president says he wrestled with the ethics of the decision but is hopeful that the science will lead to help for people with debilitating diseases. In a news conference, Obama said he has no interest in causing controversy, as the stem cell decision did. He says he is happy to avoid such controversy if that's where the science leads. But he said he will not make a decision on a matter like stem cells based on what he called a rigid, ideological approach. Obama's decision on stem cells was a reversal of his predecessor, Republican George W. Bush.}


This guy is a classic narcissist, a complete liar, a empty suit, a false prophet.This is beyond outrage, its downright earth shaking to the nucleus of humanity that this empty suit would have the audacity to speak about MORALS! ETHICAL THINGS?? Where O' God is thy sting? Where O' God is thy compassion? O' God, since when is it okay to murder unborn citizens and then take their body parts and use them, "ETHICALLY?" Can we just say "Mad Cow Disease?" Who in their right mind would want a medical treatment placed into their body, knowing that a murdered citizen gave up that part of their body, without their consent, mind you? O' God, please have mercy upon our souls and the very heart of our nation for such atrocities.

From the Facebook Group: True LIFE Heroes

Today's True LIFE Hero -- Jill Stanek

Today's True LIFE Hero is a renowned pro-life spokesperson. Jill Stanek was first thrust into the limelight as a nurse who did the right thing for babies who survived abortions. In 1999, at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, IL, nurse Jill Stanek, discovered that a significant percentage of late term abortions-by-inducement ended with live born preemies dying alone, without care, in a laundry room. The night she intercepted a tiny Down Syndrome boy being taken to the dying room -- and comforted him until his death by asphyxiation 45 minutes later -- a right to life crusader was created. Having shared intimately in his distress, she could no longer turn her head while the practice continued. When late term abortions continued to be scheduled even after Mrs. Stanek reported the unrecorded infant deaths to hospital officials, she exposed the practice to public scrutiny in the press. Within two years, she was fired from her nursing position for pro-life activities.

Jill Stanek testified of these experiences to House and Senate subcommittees in 2001 and 2002. Her interviews with Bill O'Reilly (http://tinyurl.com/3obwle) and Sean Hannity are considered right-to-life classics. President George W. Bush invited her to witness his 2002 signing the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, which protected live aborted children from infanticide, as well as his signing the Partial Birth Abortion Ban in November 2003, which protected partially delivered babies from being killed by abortion**. In 2003, she was named one of World Magazine's 30 prominent pro-life leaders over the past 30 years. She humbly defers this honor as "more deserved by innumerable others." (http://tinyurl.com/chxep2) Jill is now a weekly columnist for WorldNetDaily.com and a public speaker on pro-life issues.

Mrs. Stanek and her family brave hate mail, death threats and public scorn. Yet, her demand for reason and compassion toward the most fragile of human beings causes others to rethink their demand for choice at any price. All she wanted to be was a good nurse, but through her unrelenting boldness to present the truth, Jill Stanek has become a True LIFE Hero.

**Sadly, these landmark presidential acts have been rescinded by President Barack Obama.


My apologies for adding another message to your box.

In the spirit of fairness and honesty, I retract my statement that:**Sadly, these landmark presidential acts have been rescinded by President Barack Obama.

I was gently corrected that both of the mentioned laws can only be overturned through acts of Congress. At this time, the Senate has passed the legislation to overturn the pro-life bills that President Bush signed. President Obama has pledged to sign this legislation, which he requested, when it comes to his desk. However, he has not rescinded them, as yet.

Pro-life Executive Orders made by President George Bush that President Obama has overturned in the past 2 months:

* Reversal of limitations on embryonic stem cell research and experimenting with tissues from abortions or frozen embryos.

* Reversal of restrictions on American tax dollars financing foreign abortions.

Do The Right Thing Is Our Line, and We Ain't Giving It Up

Ok, I just wasted an hour of my life watching tonight's Presidential Press Conference. It was one of the rare times that I have spent more than 10 minutes watching this new person who now sits in the office that Ronald Reagan respected so much that he wouldn't enter it without his suit coat on. I have real difficulty watching a person blatantly lie and mislead the country that I so dearly love. With that in mind, you can see why I consider my time wasted.

So what did I get out of this debacle? Softball questions, that set up answers that were tailored to make the ideas of the Left look appealing; stuttering when the teleprompter couldn't help; dodging real questions with predetermined answers, but most importantly to me was the misuse of a term that is near and dear to me and those of us who work so hard to Do The Right Thing!

To use "doing the right thing" when talking about infanticide is unacceptable. To "throw out" unsubstaniated remarks on curing Alzhimers is nothing about doing the right thing, and everything to do with advancing an agenda that is totally opposite of Do The Right Thing.

Mr. President (and yes it does gripe me to use that term, but out of respect for the office, I will), if you want to learn about doing the right thing, I suggest that you do what I am going to begin as my new motivational tool. If you REALLY have an interest in what Do The Right Thing means, I suggest that you get on our knees and beg God's forgiveness for the moral failures of our once great nation. I suggest that you pray for God's guidance and not your own. I suggest that you take the lead in returning to the ways of our Founding Fathers who put God first.

Until you do the above Mr. President - please don't try to fool the American people that you care one iota about Doing The Right Thing. What I will do is Do The Right Thing and take my own advice, and I will pray that you do as well. I believe in the power of God, and that is what it is going to take to make our President Do The Right Thing!

Parolee in Oakland police shootings linked to rape

H/T Texas Fred.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The parolee who killed three Oakland police officers and left a fourth brain-dead over the weekend had been tentatively linked by DNA evidence to a rape the day before the shootings, authorities said.
Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason confirmed a report on the San Francisco Chronicle’s Web site on Monday night that DNA from an unsolved rape in Oakland in February was a probable match to that of 26-year-old Lovelle Mixon.
Investigators got that information Friday, the day before Mixon opened fire on the officers following a routine traffic stop. Mixon is the primary suspect in the rape and is being investigated to see if there are any connections to other rapes, Thomason said.
Thomason said further tests would need to be done on the DNA in question to make sure it is a solid match.

Parolee in Oakland police shootings linked to rape
Sacramento, CA (AP) - Nearly 5,000 California parolees — including hundreds of sex offenders and those convicted of violent felonies — have been released from supervision without proper review, according to a state audit released Tuesday. Calif. parolees released without proper review
