Texas DPS aims for statewide driver's license checkpoints

Associated Press

AUSTIN — The state's top law enforcement agency has asked Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott for a ruling on the legality of setting up statewide driver's license checkpoints but 15 lawmakers say such a move would be unauthorized immigration policymaking.

Alan Keyes: Stop Obama or U.S. will cease to exist
Claims 'communist usurper' plunges country into chaos

Alan Keyes

Alan Keyes, a 2008 presidential candidate who is also a plaintiff in one of the many lawsuits challenging Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, charged at a pro-life rally that unless Obama's social and economic policies are stopped, the United States as we know it is over.

Keyes' comments were part of an interview with a reporter from KHAS-TV at a fundraiser for the AAA Crisis Pregnancy Center in Hastings, Neb.

"Obama is a radical communist, and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it's true," said Keyes, who ran unsuccessfully against Obama for the state's open Senate seat in 2004. "He is going to destroy this country, and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist."

Keyes also reasserted his belief that unless the question of Obama's eligibility to serve as president is answered definitively, America may face the startling crisis of an executive branch run by a "usurper."

"Is he president of the United States?" Keyes asked the reporter of Obama. "According to the Constitution, in order to be eligible for president you have to be a natural born citizen. He has refused to provide proof."

Where's the proof Barack Obama was born in the U.S. or that he fulfills the "natural-born American" clause in the Constitution? If you still want to see it, join more than 240,000 others and sign up now!

"I'm not sure he's even president of the United States," Keyes continued, "neither are many of our military people now who are now going to court to ask the question, 'Do we have to obey a man who is not qualified under the constitution?' We are in the midst of the greatest crisis this nation has ever seen, and if we don't stop laughing about it and deal with it, we're going to find ourselves in the midst of chaos, confusion and civil war."

Keyes, who stated he refuses even to refer to Obama as president, labeled the man in the Oval Office as "somebody who is kind of an alleged usurper, who is alleged to be someone who is occupying that office without constitutional warrant to do so."











National Guard scraps plans to invade rural town
'This operation could be pretty intrusive to the people'

DES MOINES, Iowa – Following publicized reports that the Army National Guard was planning a military training exercise on the streets of a rural Iowa town, the commanding officers have called off the mock "invasion."

The Guard had planned a four-day urban military operation in tiny Arcadia, Iowa, population 443, sending troops to take over the town and search door-to-door for a suspected weapons dealer.

The exercise was designed as a mock scenario to give soldiers the skills needed for deployment in an urban environment, and military officials stressed that only households that consented to be part of the drill would be searched.

"It will be important for us to gain the trust and confidence of the residents of Arcadia," Sgt. Mike Kots, readiness NCO for Alpha Company, told Carroll's Daily Times Herald. "We will need to identify individuals that are willing to assist us in training by allowing us to search their homes and vehicles and to participate in role-playing.

"We really want to get as much information out there as possible," Kots continued, "because this operation could be pretty intrusive to the people of Arcadia."

Military spokesman Lt. Col. Greg Hapgood, however, told WND that the operation has now been "scaled back" and no longer involves an "invasion" of Arcadia.

And while Hapgood confirmed the Guard had been inundated with objections from citizens concerned about soldiers patrolling the streets of an American town, he said most came from people out of state and unfamiliar with the operation. Iowans, he explained, typically cooperate with the Guard. The change in plans was based on troop evaluation, he said, not public outcry.

"Higher headquarters leadership," Hapgood told WND, "given the unit's status of training proficiency, made a decision to scale back the exercise."

Fellow Americans,
"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again -- and expecting to get different results".
Thus spoke Albert Einstein, a man of tremendous intellect in science -- and common sense.
Read his wise comment out loud. Let it resonate off the wall of your living room, into your ears -- and into your heart.

Here we are, a country of 305,000,000 human beings, who trust our country's safety and well-being to a few very mediocre people we call Senators, Congressmen, Presidents, Supreme Court judges, bureaucrats.
We look up to these men and women with the false assumption that they have intelligence, integrity, honesty and patriotism -- and the common sense to know what is good for America and what is bad.

Yet, here we are -- entangled in the Global Economy into which these now proven despicable people have dragged us
"doing the same thing, over and over again -- and expecting to get different results".
Different results?. . . .

Liars "figger" but figures don't lie".

Open today's ATTACHMENT and see what the people we elected years ago to protect us from enemies within and without -- have done to us and to the innocent children who come after us.
While President Obama hurries hither and yon, dispensing
tons of "funny money" to fix our sick economy -- quietly, ever so quietly, the giant container ships from China and other slave-wage countries dock at our ports and disgorge mountains of products American workers USED to manufacture in American factories on American soil.
Unemployment? Foreclosures? Bankruptcies? Other, related miseries?

THERE, Mr. President, is your 'ECONOMY problem'. Unless you cancel those hideous World Trade Organization "most favored nation" treaties and tell the American people the painful TRUTH how we can make ourselves self-sufficient again -- you will, along with G.W. Bush, go down in history as just another President who FAILED when he could have SAVED our dying economy -- and America.

You canNOT, you will NOT accomplish that by printing paper money and creating SERVICE JOBS that bring in NO EXPORT INCOME to replenish our empty Treasury ($11 TRILLION debt BEFORE Pres. Obama orders the "funny money" presses to roll, adding trillions more debt and hyper-inflation).

EMP attack: Overlooked catastrophe

When Iran successfully launched its first domestically made satellite into orbit on Feb. 1, U.S. State Department official Robert Wood said Iran's activities could "possibly lead to the development of ballistic missiles" and were of "great concern."

French Foreign Ministry spokesman Eric Chevallier said France was "very concerned" about the launch.

UK Foreign Office Minister Bill Rammell said the launch underlined the UK's "serious concerns about Iran's intentions." Then they resumed their focus on their various economic implosions where "concerned" had been elevated to "alarmed."

What continues to astonish me is how little Western nations seem to grasp the tremendous danger that Iran is signaling in plain view. I have produced at least two television shows and as many articles in which I sought to warn of Iran's intention to use its rapidly developing nuclear warheads in an EMP attack against Israel, the EU and the U.S.

In an article I wrote for WorldNetDaily in July 2007, I noted a 1998 Iranian missile test that "failed, detonating some 40 seconds after launch after reaching an altitude of 180 miles. This is the approximate ideal altitude to detonate a nuclear warhead for an EMP attack on a country."

I was astonished at how little attention Western military planners gave Iran's successful satellite launch. What little attention it did get focused on the probability that Iran could use the satellite launch technology to build an ICBM.

The Hijacking of America

Greg McCoach
Feb 19, 2009

Watching the perverted circus of corrupt politicians and administrators in Washington and New York the last six months is enough to make anyone with a brain want to shout a primal scream of disgust and anger. I use the word "brain" because it is becoming increasingly apparent that many Americans unfortunately are no longer using the gray matter that exists between their ears with regards to what is going on in our country. The rapidly accelerating chain of events moving us faster and faster towards economic oblivion is beyond shocking. It is happening much quicker than I anticipated.

The numbers these stooges in Washington and New York are throwing around for the bailouts and economic stimulus package are simply too big for the average person to comprehend. This is one of the reasons why they can get away with it, because they know the average citizen can't understand it. The old adage "if you can't convince them, then confuse them" comes to mind and the politicians certainly have become very adept at doing that lately. (But why we let them get away with this is another story in and of itself for another time).

Iran stocks enough enriched uranium for first nuclear bomb

DEBKAfile Special Report

February 20, 2009, 2:36 PM (GMT+02:00)

Iran's heavy water reactor at Arak before covered by a dome

Iran's heavy water reactor at Arak before covered by a dome

The UN's nuclear watchdog reported Thursday, Feb. 19, that Iran's production of enriched uranium had been underestimated. It has stocked more than one tonne of low enriched uranium hexafluoride at Natanz alone. If enriched, it could produce more than 20 kilos of fissile material – enough for a bomb. French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner spoke Friday of a new enrichment plant capable of housing thousands of centrifuges the Iranians had built at a secret site, confirming long-held suspicions of sites that the UN inspectors had not heard about.

This week Dr Mohammed ElBaradei, the international nuclear agency's director said: "Iran right now is not providing any access, any clarification with regards to the whole area of the possible military dimension.

They are not following what the Security Council asked us to do, that is 'please clarify this issue'."

Officials in Washington commented: There is a steady timeline of improvement, especially in terms of mastering the efficiency of the centrifuges, meaning that Iran has been able to increase its output of enriched uranium."

DEBKAfile reported on Nov. 28, 2008, that by February, Iran would be able to approach production of its first nuclear bomb after accumulating enough enriched uranium.

The UN report also discloses that Iran had built a dome over its Arak heavy water reactor, preventing satellites from taking images of the facility,

DEBKAfile's military sources report that the Arak plant is the core of a program for processing plutonium for military purposes. The dome was a major project, but according to our sources, useless since both American and Israeli satellites have instruments for penetrating the structure.

All these developments mean that Iran has reached a “breakout capacity” – a stage that would allow it to produce enough fissile material for a bomb. This crosses a “red line” that for years Israel has said it would not accept.

DEBKAfile adds: The Obama administration is working on its negotiating stance ahead of direct dialogue with Iran in June, while Israel is plunged in the hectic process of forming a coalition government after its Feb. 10 election. Our Washington sources add that President Barack Obama has not broached the issue of uranium enrichment which brought forth UN Security Council sanctions against Iran under his successor.


Is Mexico About to Collapse?

Oil, drug money, and enablers all impact the economic probability of Mexico’s survival. By Joel Hilliker and Robert Morley

“For each one of mine that you kill, I will kill 10 soldiers.”

That was the note that accompanied the severed heads of eight soldiers and a former state police director.

The beheadings were not done by al Qaeda, nor did they occur in some little-known region of Afghanistan. These men were horribly mutilated and murdered by Mexican drug lords.

But the deaths were bought and paid for with American money from American citizens.

NEW YORK – President Obama affirmed in an interview with a Spanish-language radio show that his administration is preparing to push for a new round of "comprehensive immigration reform."

The White House confirmed to WND Obama was a guest on the Univision show "Piolin por la Manana," or "Piolin for the morning," hosted by Eddie "Piolin" Sotelo. A transcript of the interview, however, was not posted on the White House website.

"And then we've got to have comprehensive immigration reform," Obama told the radio audience, according to a transcript. "It's going to take some time to move that forward, but I'm very committed to making it happen."


Gun rights at risk: The Ammunition Accountability Act

The bill that is being pushed in 18 states (including Illinois and Indiana) requires all ammunition to be encoded by the manufacturer in a data base of all ammunition sales. So they will know how much you buy and what calibers. Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the ammunition is coded.

Any privately held uncoded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011 (Including hand loaded ammo). They will also charge a $0.005 tax on every round.

If they can deprive you of ammo they do not need to take your gun!

This legislation is currently pending in 18 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington.

  3. Gen 49:20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.
  4. Gen 49:22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:
  5. Gen 49:25 Even by the G-d of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:
  6. Gen 49:26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
  7. Gen 49:28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spoke unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.

Personal Comments:
These are the times that try mens souls and I am very concerned about the America that I grew up in because it no longer exists. Most of the real world has ignored the instructions from the five books of Moses and now G-D is about to humble not only America but this entire planet.

You can not keep on doing the things that go against your creator and simply think you can always get away with it, its now time to understand that when you hired the Fiddler to play and you danced, its now time to pay the Fiddler with RESPECT. Just a parallel as I see it. G-D is now furious with the very world that he created and now its time to punish his children one way or another.

I do not mean to say that we are all bad, but just look around at the lies and deceit and the corruption and all the underhanded deals in this country and around the world, it is my opinion we as a world have run out of time and excuses to the creator of this world.

America started its Military decline in 1945 and it is written in Leviticus - Chapter 26, Verse 19, 20.....You can not fight and win wars with strict rules of engagement and put your own Border Patrol agents in jail, you set an example why not to become involved in what requires total submission of an enemy that wants to cut your head off. REPEAT, YOUR ENEMY WANTS TO CUT YOUR HEAD OFF AND DISPLAY IT TO THE WORLD.

G-D at this point in time in my personal opinion and as I clearly see things has no rules of engagement and will not show any mercy towards his enemies regardless of what you think or care about. Finally he will destroy the very sadistic people that have not obeyed his commandments, its that simple and the time is near. There is no way "MAN" or even "WOMEN" could have created this global nightmare that has already started, you have only seen the beginning of what is going to come.

I suggest you read your Bible every day and pray to your G-D. I am not asking you to pray as I do, I never try and tell anyone about any specific religion, as most people I have my beliefs and we will need every prayer to get through the crisis that lies ahead. You will need clean water and food for survival, start to prepare now. Seal your primers.

Savage goes on offense in 'Fairness Doctrine' battle
Regulations 'nothing more than a desire to silence political opposition'

Michael Savage (San Francisco Chronicle)

Talk radio icon Michael Savage is going on the offense and has agreed to work with a Michigan-based civil rights advocacy organization to protect free speech by fighting the return of the so-called "Fairness Doctrine."

"A regulation of speech motivated by nothing more than a desire to silence political opposition on controversial issues of public interest is the purest example of a law abridging the freedom of speech," said Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of Thomas More Law Center.

"Such action is the hallmark of totalitarian governments, not a free society," he said.

The Fairness Doctrine was abandoned in 1987, but leading Democrats increasingly have called for its return.


Israeli warning to Obama: Your talk gives Iran nukes
Ex-Mossad chief says Tehran stalling, worries about president's 'learning curve'

Shabtai Shavit
JERUSALEM – President Obama's policy of direct diplomacy with Iran may buy Tehran enough time to produce nuclear weapons, Shabtai Shavit, former chief of the Mossad intelligence agency, warned in an exclusive WND interview today.

"I don't believe there is a political solution which can be achieved through negotiations with Iran," he said.

"My concern is that until Obama finishes his learning curve of the subject, the Iranians are going to have maybe the first or even more nuclear bombs."

Shavit served as director of the Mossad from 1989 through 1996. He clarified that although diplomacy cannot be ruled out, from his experience he doesn't believe there can be a political solution with Iran.

He said there is a military option but that at this point in time, an Israeli or U.S. strike against Tehran's nuclear facilities would not completely halt the country's suspected illicit program.

"According to the best of my assessment, I'm afraid [using a strike to] completely disrupt the whole Iranian (nuclear) project and the whole system is not possible. But there still could be a military option. It depends what are the aims you define for [any such attack]."

President Shimon Peres repents

As he began consultations for the formation of Israel's post-election cabinet Wednesday, Feb. 18, President Shimon Peres made an extraordinary statement. Addressing the Presidents Conference, hee admitted for the first time that Israel's unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip in 2005 was a mistake "which will not be repeated." His decision regarding the future composition would therefore be dictated by its policies, he said.

Peres, who was vice premier in the government headed by Ariel Sharon which ordered the 2005 evacuation of the Gaza Strip, confessed for the first time that he was wrong to support it. Things should have been differently, he said.

(Israeli forces forcibly evicted 8,500 Israelis living in the Gaza communities - many of whom remain homeless to this day - and opened the way for Hamas' takeover.)

Peres said: "My problem is less whom to entrust with the role of prime minister but rather the candidate's policies. The world is undergoing new situations and the new government must adjust its policies accordingly. I do not disqualify any Israeli who was duly elected."

Tax troubles for president's chief of staff
Emanuel's rent-free Washington residence draws questioning

Rahm Emanuel

There could be tax troubles on the horizon for White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who reportedly has lived rent-free in Washington

for five years but hasn't paid taxes on the imputed income from that, according to reports.

He's the latest in a growing list of President Obama's nominees to have been involved in tax issues, according to those tabulating the tally in Washington.

According to WND columnist Phyllis Schlafly, several of "Obama's major nominees are mired in political embarrassment. Three withdrew their names from consideration, one sneaked through confirmation because senators were still intoxicated with the Obama honeymoon, and Obama plans to use a waiver so the Senate will approve the fifth."

"Funny thing," she continued, "Americans don't seem to like it when government officials evade the taxes the rest of us pay, especially when they evade more taxes than most Americans' entire tax bill. Apparently, that doesn't seem to bother Obama."
