Play this several times.
Brother X says: "Transparancy applies only to Republicans. We Democrats do not recognize such a concept."
"I can just feel it. He’s going to make me czar of the Chicago Way."
"Conservatives would vote for the black guy if and only if he were the best for the job, because they don't have a low opinion of any race, and expect everyone to live up to the same standards."
'Property and assets of international organizations, wherever located and by whomsoever held, shall be immune from search, unless such immunity be expressly waived, and from confiscation. The archives of international organizations shall be inviolable.'
"The key here is the word 'inviolable,' which means that Interpol assets, records and other property are no longer subject to the search and seizure provisions of the Fourth Amendment, nor are they subject to public scrutiny under the Freedom of Information Act."
"Crowley, who regarded himself as the 'Beast 666,' the anti-Christ, and the incarnation of Satan, also organized in such cities as London and Paris, where he developed a relationship with New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty, as recounted in S.J. Taylor’s book, Stalin’s Apologist. Taylor says that Crowley staged homosexual rituals with Duranty in which they chanted 'blood and semen.'
"Like Hay, Duranty had a major impact on history. As the Moscow correspondent for the New York Times after the communist revolution, he helped cover up Stalin’s crimes. Hay was a Stalinist himself and stayed in the Communist Party even after the Hitler-Stalin pact.
"Hay’s confusion about his own sexual identity, including the belief that he somehow benefitted from being preyed upon by homosexual
"At one time, NAMBLA was a member of the International Lesbian and Gay Association, and its NAMBLA Bulletin belonged to the Gay and Lesbian Press Association. However, the 'gay rights' establishment these days tries to play down the acceptance of NAMBLA in their movement, including by Hay himself.
"Photos of Hay and his 'Faeries' speak for themselves. One photo of Hay, who also became known as the 'Father of the Faeries,' shows him later in life wearing pearls, a blouse, and what appears to be a rainbow dress. Hay referred to the 'Faeries' as 'sissy men' and they gathered in the woods to pay homage to the earth. Radical Faeries have also been featured in 'gay rights' parades.
"But in the same way that Hay’s Stalinism proves worrisome, author Will Roscoe writes that Hay was influenced by a book titled The Morning of the Magician, which traced the power of the occult back to the Nazi period. This is extremely significant. In addition to Hitler’s fascination with the occult, the genocidal dictator surrounded himself with a number of homosexual perverts in the Nazi Party.
"Demonstrating that he was familiar with the career of Harry Hay, Obama Education Department official Kevin Jennings noted in his 1997 remarks that 'In 1948, he [Hay] tried to get people to join the Mattachine Society.' What Jennings did not say, perhaps deliberately so, was that the Mattachine Society was a communist front organization.
"The 'Hope Along the Wind' film notes that a 'Marxist education Class' being taught by Hay produced several recruits for the new organization. Hay himself said, 'All of them [the founders] thought of themselves as Marxists. We’re all thinking in the same direction, feeling in the same direction, looking in the same way and feeling in our bodies: this is the beginning of a . And this is the beginning of what we were going to be calling six months later the Mattachine Society.'
"The film’s narrator adds, 'The Mattachine Society was organized into a secret cell structure, similar to the Communist Party. Members in one cell never knew the members in another, protecting the group in case of arrest.'
"These Marxists, led by Hay, expanded Hay’s original Marxist idea that homosexuals were considered oppressed by the capitalist system and in need of special rights. But Hay’s communist connections proved to be too controversial even at this time and he eventually left this organization as well.
"Political acceptance was always the goal. Hay supported the 1948 presidential candidacy of Henry Wallace on the communist-dominated Progressive Party Ticket. Later, he acted within the Democratic Party, working as a member of Jesse Jackson’s 'rainbow coalition' to elect the black activist as president.
"Today, Hay would be 'proud.' Five states have legalized 'gay marriage,' the Democratic Party officially supports 'gay rights,' the Obama Administration has lifted the ban on AIDS-infected foreigners entering the U.S., and Obama wants open homosexuals to join the ranks of the military. Hay remained true to the communist cause to the end of his life in 2002. He says in the film, 'I was part and parcel of that [the Communist Party] and I was proud to be part and parcel of that.'
"One of his last public roles was as a representative of the 'Radical Faerie Political Network' at the 1992 national convention of a Communist Party spin-off group, the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS).
"Stuart Timmons, the author of The Trouble With Harry Hay, wrote that it 'saddened' Hay after the demise of the old Soviet Union to see people 'throwing out the baby with the bath water' in completely denouncing communism. 'Marxism needs to be revised, based on new scientific knowledge, particularly of human behavior,' Hay said. 'The underlying methodology will be proved sound.' His legacy is considered so positive among 'gay rights' activists that he was hailed as one of many 'gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender icons' by the 'GLBT History month' project for 2009 and featured on the homosexual-oriented Logo television network.
"However, as more and more people learn the truth about Harry Hay and how he was an inspiration to Kevin Jennings, scrutiny of Jennings¯and those who appointed and support him¯is growing.
"This is why a group called Media Matters for America, run by a homosexual activist, is working feverishly to counter any allegations deemed harmful to Jennings and his mission at the Education Department. Its usual procedure is to label any critics of the homosexual movement as promoting 'hate' or engaging in 'smears' and 'lies.'”
"The media’s ooohing and aahhhing about Obama’s new tough terrorism talk is the height of nincompoopery. Like all radicals, Obama’s true jeremiad is with the CIA, not the terrorists."
"Like so many dictators, Obama has gone on leaning on his media crutch, certain that a constant stream of propaganda is all that’s really needed to keep the public in line. And when it failed to work, his only response was bafflement. The product of a digital campaign, Obama and his people see the media as as the ultimate tool, failing to understand that it is only one of many channels to the voters. And while the media daze has made Obama seem omnipresent, it has also made him seem distant and out of touch.
"But there is a reason that Obama is where he is, that a man and his staff who can only think in top down ways, who manipulate and scheme constantly, are where they are. The Democratic did not want another Clinton, they didn’t want someone who would make compromises and cut deals. They wanted tyranny and they still want it."
What if Reid was a Republican saying that?
Rush Limbaugh: "Obama would have given me a heart attack if he would have visited me in the hospital."
"I have learned of certain unfortunate comments made by Senator Reid regarding President Barack Obama and have spoken with Senator Reid about those comments. While there is no question that Senator Reid did not select the best word choice in this instance, these comments should not distract America from its continued focus on securing health care or creating jobs for its people. Nor should they detract from the unquestionable leadership role Senator Reid has played on these issues or in the area of civil rights. Senator Reid's door has always been open on hearing from the civil rights community on these issues and I look forward to continue to work with Senator Reid wherever possible to improve the lives of Americans everywhere."

In other words "I protect the racists I love."
"Luggage screeners discovered five Gatorade bottles full of an 'amber' liquid. TSA agents then opened the bottles and complained they smelled 'a strong chemical odor.' They then complained of nausea and were taken to the local hospital for treatment.
"According to Reuters, 'Kern County Sheriffs deputies, fire crews, FBI agents and members of a joint terrorism task force responded to the scene and spent the day questioning Ramirez before further tests showed that the liquid was honey.'
"In other words, Ramirez was interrogated by the FBI for hours while being presumed to be a terrorist. (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUS...)
"And then it turned out the 'explosive amber liquid' was just HONEY."

Over the past year, we have reported several times on the abundance of rumors being circulated regarding firearm issues. Among other things, we’ve heard phony tales circulating about such things as guns being banned for the elderly, ammunition with expiration dates, a requirement that guns be listed on tax returns, and a prohibition on gun and ammunition imports. The latest scuttlebutt has to do with a recent Executive Order by President Obama concerning the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL).
Some have argued that the order would make INTERPOL and its officials immune from civil suit or criminal prosecution, and that it would therefore allow INTERPOL personnel to seize firearms, kidnap Americans, and otherwise violate U.S. citizens’ rights. Our legal staff has reviewed this order and does not believe it poses any of these threats.
President Obama’s order amends a 1983 order by President Reagan, in which the U.S. recognized INTERPOL as an international organization that is entitled to certain legal immunities under the International Organizations Immunities Act (IOIA).
One of those immunities is immunity from civil lawsuits. Under the doctrine of “sovereign immunity,” foreign governments generally can’t be sued, and the IOIA extended that protection to international organizations. This has been applied to block suits against the United Nations, Organization of American States, and other international bodies.
This means that articles on the recent order are incorrect in claiming that the order made INTERPOL immune from civil suits; INTERPOL was already immune.
Some have also suggested that under the order, INTERPOL agents would receive diplomatic immunity, so they could violate Americans’ rights without fear of criminal prosecution. There are several misconceptions here.
First, diplomatic immunity only protects diplomats, and the IOIA specifically says it does not confer diplomatic immunity on international organization employees.
Second, while the IOIA does provide a limited type of immunity for international organization employees, this is only immunity “relating to acts performed by them in their official capacity.” U.S. courts have interpreted this narrowly. In one case, a court found that a U.N. employee was not immune to a local speeding ticket even though he was actually driving the Secretary General of the U.N. to an official conference. In other cases, courts have found that employees of international organizations can be prosecuted for espionage, because espionage is not among their official duties.
Law enforcement officers working with INTERPOL are detailed from agencies in various countries, such as the FBI or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They have no power of arrest outside their own countries. Therefore, a seizure of an American (or of an Americans’ firearms) would likely not fall within the official duties for which INTERPOL officials would be immune from prosecution.
Now don’t take any of this to mean that we underestimate our anti-gun opponents, or that we don’t believe they would happily and readily seize the opportunity to adopt and enforce measures that would limit our freedom. We know full well that they would. Rather, our message is this: Rumors abound, so don’t believe everything you read. If it’s a legitimate concern, rest assured your NRA-ILA will promptly address it and will give you the straight story.
