Speculation Builds on Michelle Obama Senate Run


Free Republic

FLOTUS for Senate?

It wasn’t that long ago that such a slogan would seem absurd, but political wags are beginning to wonder whether Michelle Obama is mulling a run for Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk’s seat in 2016.

A Thursday column in Reuters suggests that Obama would be the only candidate with a large enough profile to unseat the Republican. The column also points to Obama’s recent willingness to debate the merits of her school lunch program with Republicans, a trip to China, fundraising and her stance on the kidnapped Nigerian school girls as other signs that her tone is turning more political. It’s not the first time Obama has been mentioned as a potential senatorial candidate, but that speculation has always focused beyond 2016. And the First Lady herself has never publicly indicated any interest in seeking political office.

But just like a senator named Barack Obama who decided to run for president in 2008 when many thought he should wait his turn, politics are often about timing.

She would quickly become the most recognizable face in the Senate. Her fame and fundraising ability would command deference in a body that normally operates on seniority. Whether the recent elevation of her profile suggests a plan to run is unclear, but she will be well positioned should she jump in. —

Large Cash Payment Might Have Been Added to the Five Top Terrorists Traded for Deserter Bergdahl


Why would our terrorist enemies settle for five of their leaders in return for a deserter and probable collaborator? They knew that when dealing with Obama, they could get even more:

Tuesday on NewsMax TV, former U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Oliver North said U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was not a prisoner of war because he was actually being held “hostage” by the Haqqanis, a terrorist group separate from the Taliban and associated heavily with al Qaeda.

North said he knew there was at least a $1 million dollar ransom being demanded for Bergdahl some time ago so he estimated the price paid to release the hostage must be close to $5-6 million now.

Doubt has been expressed as to whether releasing top Taliban commanders really benefited the Haqqanis, who are as much a criminal gang as a political entity. Why would they give up a guy who was reportedly helping them turn cell phones into detonators?

They would be more likely to make the deal for money. The Taliban leaders were thrown in because Obama wanted them freed, to help clear out Gitmo or for ideological reasons.

No need for outrage; $5–6 million is a drop in the bucket compared to the expenses run up during the pointless campaign to find Bergdahl just in terms of money, leave alone the precious lives lost. Anyway, taxpayers still have plenty of cash, for the time being.

Better than giving it to terrorists.

White House Calls Bergdahl’s Fellow Soldiers Liars

Gulag Bound


There are no depths to which the Obama syndicate will not sink, in order to suppress and destroy the truth. And there is no tactic too demeaning for them to use against their enemies. Now, it appears the soldiers who daily protect Americans have been targeted by the Obama White House collective as its adversaries. These creatures who serve the dictator-in-chief and their master are anathema.

The White House Officially Turns Against the Soldiers Obama Commands

The soldiers who served with deserter Bowe Bergdahl knew about his desertion in 2009 and the note and emails he had left behind. Bergdahl said he was “ashamed to be an American.” In 2012 even left leaning Rolling Stone Magazine reported of emails Bergdahl had sent to his parents condemning the US Military and Americans in general: “The future is too good to waste on lies. And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong.” Three days before he went missing, he tells them: “These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid.”

Obama is bringing Muslims into the inter-workings of America’s government and intelligence community.

We the People

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.


Only by a government run by the radical left could this nonsense be going on.

The left and Islam have a great deal in common.  They both are totalitarian, both against freedom of speech and each wants to make the Constitution of the U.S. Irrelevant.

The upcoming elections in 2014 and 16 may determine the future of of our Constitutionally driven Republic. 

Muslims are inside of America in POLICY MAKING POSITIONS

How about this for change?



Look who’s new in the White House, for crying out loud!


Arif Alikhan – Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security


Mohammed Elibiary – Homeland Security Adviser

Rashad Hussain – Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference(OIC)


Salam al-Marayati – Obama Adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council and is its current executive director  


Imam Mohamed Magid– Obama’s Sharia Czar from the Islamic Society of North America


Eboo Patel- Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships 

All of these people are MUSLIMS who hate America and want to kill all non-Muslims!

This is flat-out scary!!!  

The foxes are now officially living in the hen house… 

How can this happen, and when will we wake up???     Why are  we  quiet while our Country is being drastically changed!!!

We’ve got to have some relief starting with the 2014 Elections! 









Terrorist Groups Rise 58% Since 2010


Free Republic

One of the principal narratives of the 2012 Obama re-election campaign — as in al Qaeda has been “decimated” and put on a “on the path to defeat” — has itself been decimated. According to a study released yesterday by the RAND Corporation, there has been a 58 percent increase in the number of jihadist groups over the last four years. Even more troubling, the number of jihadist fighters has doubled, and the number of worldwide attacks has tripled. The report further notes that terrorist groups operating in Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan pose the greatest threat to the United States.

“Based on these threats, the United States cannot afford to withdraw or remain disengaged from key parts of North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia,” states Seth G. Jones, author of the study and associate director of the International Security and Defense Policy Center at RAND. “After more than a decade of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, it may be tempting for the U.S. to turn its attention elsewhere and scale back on counterterrorism efforts. But this research indicates that the struggle is far from over.”

Exclusive: The story you haven’t yet heard about Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion

Five years ago, I publicly raised questions about Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion from Blackfoot Company, 1-501 Infantry (Airborne), 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division.

A few weeks after his so-called “capture” in late June 2009, three conflicting accounts had surfaced: U.S. officials told the Associated Press Bergdahl had “walked off” the base with three Afghans; the Taliban claimed on its website that “a drunken American soldier had come out of his garrison” and into their arms; and Bergdahl claimed in his Taliban “hostage video” that he had “lagged behind a patrol” before being captured.

I asked on my blog: Were the AP’s sources mistaken? Or is the disturbing first account the right one? What about the “three Afghans” who Pfc. Bergdahl reportedly “just walked off” with after his shift? Who are they? What’s going on?

Five years ago, one of the brave soldiers who risked his life to search for Bergdahl answered my questions and I published his statement on July 20, 2009:

Barack Obama, Freedom of Speech and Operation Choke Point… you’d better watch out, you might be next!

Flopping Aces

The Constitution guarantees every American the Freedom of Speech. The very first Amendment to the document says “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech…” Of course, what is speech that it needs such protection? Speech is more than just saying what’s on your mind, regardless of how profound or silly it is. Speech is communication. That’s the speech that needed protection and was incorporated into the First Amendment. It was the communication of thoughts and ideas that needed protection. Speech needed protection because of the impact it could have on others. Kings don’t like their authority questioned and a freedom of speech could potentially rile up his subjects.

It is that very reason that our Founding Fathers sought to protect speech: For the people to keep the government in check.

Moonbat Austin Homeowners Surprised To Find They Have To Pay All The Taxes They Voted For


Weasel Zippers

Clueless to the cause and effect of their votes. But, but the Government pays for the park and roads.

Via Hot Air

I’m at the breaking point,” said Gretchen Gardner, an Austin artist who bought a 1930s bungalow in the Bouldin neighborhood just south of downtown in 1991 and has watched her property tax bill soar to $8,500 this year.

“It’s not because I don’t like paying taxes,” said Gardner, who attended both meetings. “I have voted for every park, every library, all the school improvements, for light rail, for anything that will make this city better. But now I can’t afford to live here anymore. I’ll protest my appraisal notice, but that’s not enough. Someone needs to step in and address the big picture.”

In Texas, there are more than 3,900 localities that impose property taxes, including school districts, counties, and special districts. Texas’ property tax burden has grown from approximately 1 percent of value in the early 1980s to nearly 3 percent today.

The rising burden from property tax is worse for the housing-rich but income-poor elderly homeowners. For example, elderly homeowners tend to move more often to reduce their property tax burden, which is an additional cost of owning a home for those who can least afford to move.

Interestingly, another reason voters hate property taxes is because they are more “salient.” A salient tax means that the burden is transparent, easy to understand, and hard to avoid. If paid directly, property taxes are found to be more salient compared with sales taxes applied at checkout or income taxes withheld from a paycheck.
