   There is one candidate running for President of the United States who is a true American minority.  One.  He is not a democrat.  She is a Christian, conservative American minority.  Think about that for just one moment. 
   When our current President talks about his family, he always talks about his white family.  His father, who was born in Kenya, does not have the background to claim to be an American minority.  He may be a minority American, which is different.  His family has not handed down the struggles of a true American minority.  His family is white.
   Michele Bauchman, on the other hand, is a true American minority.  Women have struggled with some of the same issues as Americans of color.  In the mid 1970's, I was hired into a man's job due to the affirmative action law.  They needed to hire a woman.  I would know about the struggles, as would Mrs. Bauchman, who has been a tax lawyer.  
   She is a Bible believing Christian.  She is a mom, who does not believe in abortion.  She has the same points of view that I do.  Why would I vote and support some yahoo who does not act the way he claims to believe? 
   No, my vote and support goes to Michele Bauchman.  Please join me.  It is just common sense.

The CIA’s RQ-170 “Sentinel” drone captured by the Iranians last week may have gone down in Afghanistan and then transported to Iran by friendly forces on the ground, a former officer in the elite Quds Force branch of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards told The Daily Caller.
The United States has never acknowledged that the drone was flying over Iranian airspace — only that ground controllers “lost contact” with the drone and that it probably crashed.
However, photographs and video footage released by the Iranians on Dec. 8, several days after they announced the drone’s capture, clearly show that both wings had been neatly severed and then reattached.

“This suggests that the drone landed safely and that its wings were cut off so it could be transported by truck,” the former Quds Force officer said. “I believe it was captured by the Taliban inside Afghanistan and transferred to the Iranians, who then reattached the wings,” he added.
The United States military has long complained that Iran supplies weapons, explosives, and money to the Taliban. The U.S. has identified camps inside Iran where Taliban fighters are trained.
Former U.S. Army intelligence officer Lt. Col Tony Schaeffer told FoxNews on Monday that he believed Iran’s claims that it had interfered with the drone’s command signal and forced it to land inside Iran.
“If it had gone down inside Afghanistan, we should have blasted whoever had taken it before they could have moved it to Iran,” he told TheDC on Tuesday.
The United States lost a drone to insurgents in Iraq in 2007 who managed to overwhelm its digital signal, which was unencrypted. The RQ-170 drone is also believed to have used an unencrypted data link, making Iran’s claims to have brought it down through some form of cyber attack more credible.
A three-way relationship connecting Iran, the Taliban and al-Qaida was in place long before the 9/11 terror attacks, and those connections have become increasingly close in recent years.
In July, the U.S. Treasury Department revealed that Iran has been sheltering al-Qaida’s top operations planner, the man who ultimately took over from 9/11-planner Khalid Sheikh Mohammad.
In a press release that highlighted Iran’s support for al-Qaida, Treasury said that Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, the terror group’s operations commander, had been its “emissary in Iran, a position which allowed him to travel in and out of Iran with the permission of Iranian officials.”
And when U.S. special operations commanders raided Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan hideout in May, the overwhelming majority of captured documents and communications were between Atiyah and bin Laden.
A former senior CIA operations officer told TheDC that most CIA drones are programmed to “return to base” if they lose contact with their controllers, using on-board GPS transponders to guide them.
The fact that the drone crashed — or was guided down by a hostile cyber-attack, as Iran has claimed — proves a malfunction occurred, but not one serious enough to cause major damage during a crash landing.
“It’s unconscionable there wasn’t a self-destruct mechanism on board,” the former CIA operations officer said. “Someone is going to have to be accountable for that. It was a clear oversight.”
Senior Iranian officials have used the drone incident to accuse the United States of waging a broad spectrum intelligence war against their country.
Stephen Hadley, national security advisor to President George W. Bush, buttressed those claims last week, telling the Associated Press that U.S. covert operations underway against Iran were “much bigger than people appreciate.”
President Obama revealed Monday that he has asked Iran to return the drone. “We’ll see how the Iranians respond,” he said.

We reported about this war on Dece. 6th.  What is this President doing?  Has Congress signed off on a declaration of war or is President Obama using his "assignation option"?

   This is something all of America has seen coming from the Democrats.  They think if they pardon these illegals, that they are sure to win their votes and stay in office:

New Haven Mayor John DeStefano plans to ask the state Legislature to allow illegal immigrants who live in the city to be able vote in municipal elections.
DeStefano said on Tuesday that the proposal would build a more engaged community and follows the lead of other cities, the New Haven Independent reports.
The Independent reports that New Haven has about 10,000  non-citizen immigrants.
Immigrants who are in the U.S. legally or illegally and cannot vote now would still be unable to vote in state or federal elections.
DeStefano, a Democrat, said illegal immigrants pay taxes indirectly through rent and send their kids to New Haven schools and should be able to vote.
New Haven made national headlines in 2007 when the city approved a program that provides municipal identification cards for all residents -- including illegal immigrants -- to provide access to services such as banking and the library.
Malloy told the New Haven Register, "it's not an idea that I'm particularly comfortable with."
The Democratic governor said he believes there are obligations and privileges that come with legal citizenship, but he's willing to "hear the mayor out" on his proposal.

 For many years, credit cards and home equity loans papered over the harsh realities of this new economy.  But in 2008, the house of cards collapsed.  We all know the story by not:  Mortgages sold to people who couldn't afford them, or sometimes even understand them.  Banks and investors allowed to keep packaging the risk and selling it off.  Huge bets--and huge bonuses--made with other people's money on the line.  Regulators who were supposed to warn us about the dangers of all this, but looked the other way or didn't have the authority to look at all.

According to the New York Times, January 25,2011, a report by Sewell Chan, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission that investigated the crisis cited "widespread failures in government regulation, corporate mismanagement and heedless risk-taking by Wall Street, according to the conclusions of a federal inquiry."  
The majority report finds fault with two Fed chairmen: Alan Greenspan, who led the central bank as the housing bubble expanded, and his successor, Ben S. Bernanke, who did not foresee the crisis but played a crucial role in the response. It criticizes Mr. Greenspan for advocating deregulation and cites a “pivotal failure to stem the flow of toxic mortgages” under his leadership as a “prime example” of negligence.
It also criticizes the Bush administration’s “inconsistent response” to the crisis — allowing Lehman Brothers to collapse in September 2008 after earlier bailing out another bank, Bear Stearns, with Fed help — as having “added to the uncertainty and panic in the financial markets.”
Like Mr. Bernanke, Mr. Bush’s Treasury secretary, Henry M. Paulson Jr., predicted in 2007 — wrongly, it turned out — that the subprime collapse would be contained, the report notes.
Democrats also come under fire. The decision in 2000 to shield the exotic financial instruments known as over-the-counter derivatives from regulation, made during the last year of President Bill Clinton’s term, is called “a key turning point in the march toward the financial crisis.”
Timothy F. Geithner, who was president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York during the crisis and is now the Treasury secretary, was not unscathed; the report finds that the New York Fed missed signs of trouble at Citigroup and Lehman, though it did not have the main responsibility for overseeing them.
That means it was government--the same government who is supposed "to protect the security of the citizens of this nation."
It was wrong.  It combined the breathtaking greed of a few with irresponsibility across the system.  And it plunged our economy and the world into a crisis from which we are still fighting to recover.  It claimed the jobs, homes, and the basic security of millions--innocent, hard-working Americans who had met their responsibilities, but were still left holding the bag.

"The recession killed off 7.9 million jobs. It's increasingly likely that many will never come back", according to CNN money report dated July 2, 2010 posted by Chris Isidore, whose information came from the government's job report issued that Friday.
"The job losses during the Great Recession were so off the chart, that even though we've gained about 600,000 private sector jobs back, we've got nearly 8 million jobs to go," said Lakshman Achuthan, managing director of Economic Cycle Research Institute.
What this says, is that the "unemployment rate" is also being "doctored" by this administration.  We have lost jobs that are not coming back and this administration has so many regulations in place that no one is creating new ones.
And let us not forget how Bank of America and others were "signing" foreclosures without proper review, which took our homes from us without due process.


   Brian Bennet from the "Washington Bureau" reports on December 10, 2011 and was published by The Los Angeles Times:

Armed with a search warrant, Nelson County Sheriff Kelly Janke went looking for six missing cows on the Brossart family farm in the early evening of June 23. Three men brandishing rifles chased him off, he said.

Janke knew the gunmen could be anywhere on the 3,000-acre spread in eastern North Dakota. Fearful of an armed standoff, he called in reinforcements from the state Highway Patrol, a regional SWAT team, a bomb squad, ambulances and deputy sheriffs from three other counties.

He also called in a Predator B drone.

As the unmanned aircraft circled 2 miles overhead the next morning, sophisticated sensors under the nose helped pinpoint the three suspects and showed they were unarmed. Police rushed in and made the first known arrests of U.S. citizens with help from a Predator, the spy drone that has helped revolutionize modern warfare
But that was just the start. Local police say they have used two unarmed Predators based at Grand Forks Air Force Base to fly at least two dozen surveillance flights since June. The FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration have used Predators for other domestic investigations, officials said.

"We don't use [drones] on every call out," said Bill Macki, head of the police SWAT team in Grand Forks. "If we have something in town like an apartment complex, we don't call them."

The drones belong to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which operates eight Predators on the country's northern and southwestern borders to search for illegal immigrants and smugglers. The previously unreported use of its drones to assist local, state and federal law enforcement has occurred without any public acknowledgment or debate.

Congress first authorized Customs and Border Protection to buy unarmed Predators in 2005. Officials in charge of the fleet cite broad authority to work with police from budget requests to Congress that cite "interior law enforcement support" as part of their mission.
Congress first authorized Customs and Border Protection to buy unarmed Predators in 2005. Officials in charge of the fleet cite broad authority to work with police from budget requests to Congress that cite "interior law enforcement support" as part of their mission.

In an interview, Michael C. Kostelnik, a retired Air Force general who heads the office that supervises the drones, said Predators are flown "in many areas around the country, not only for federal operators, but also for state and local law enforcement and emergency responders in times of crisis."

But former Rep. Jane Harman (D-Venice), who sat on the House homeland security intelligence subcommittee at the time and served as its chairwoman from 2007 until early this year, said no one ever discussed using Predators to help local police serve warrants or do other basic work.

Using Predators for routine law enforcement without public debate or clear legal authority is a mistake, Harman said.

"There is no question that this could become something that people will regret," said Harman, who resigned from the House in February and now heads the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, a Washington think tank.

In 2008 and 2010, Harman helped beat back efforts by Homeland Security officials to use imagery from military satellites to help domestic terrorism investigations. Congress blocked the proposal on grounds it would violate the Posse Comitatus Act, which bars the military from taking a police role on U.S. soil.

Proponents say the high-resolution cameras, heat sensors and sophisticated radar on the border protection drones can help track criminal activity in the United States, just as the CIA uses Predators and other drones to spy on militants in Pakistan, nuclear sites in Iran and other targets around the globe.

For decades, U.S. courts have allowed law enforcement to conduct aerial surveillance without a warrant. They have ruled that what a person does in the open, even behind a backyard fence, can be seen from a passing airplane and is not protected by privacy laws.

Advocates say Predators are simply more effective than other planes. Flying out of earshot and out of sight, a Predator B can watch a target for 20 hours nonstop, far longer than any police helicopter or manned aircraft.

"I am for the use of drones," said Howard Safir, former head of operations for the U.S. Marshals Service and former New York City police commissioner. He said drones could help police in manhunts, hostage situations and other difficult cases.

But privacy advocates say drones help police snoop on citizens in ways that push current law to the breaking point.

"Any time you have a tool like that in the hands of law enforcement that makes it easier to do surveillance, they will do more of it," said Ryan Calo, director for privacy and robotics at the Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society.

It is great to be back in the state of Kansas.  As many of you know, I've got roots here.  I'm sure you're all familiar with the obamas of Oswatomie.  Actually, I like to say that I got my name from my father, but I got my accent--and my values--from my mother.  She was born in Wichita.  Her mother grew up in Augusta.  And her father was from El Dorado.  So my Kansas roots run deep.
   We know about Uncle Oyango Obama from Framingham, Mass., who was arrested for drunk driving on August 30, 2011.  President Obama talks about his "Uncle Omar" in his memoir "Dreams from My Father," about retracing his roots and his 1988 trip to Kenya, to an Uncle Omar, who matches Oyango's background and has the same date of birth.  
   We also know about Aunt Zeituni Obama, also from Framingham, who was arrested for being in this country illegally.  Zeituni Oyango came to the U.S. from Kenya in 2000 and was denied asylum by an immigration judge in 2004. She stayed in the country illegally and was granted asylum last year by a judge who found she could be a target in Kenya not only for those who oppose the U.S. and the president but also for members of the Kenyan government.
   Oh, but enough about our President's family.

 My grandparents served during World War II--he as a soldier in Patton's Army, she as a worker on a bomber assembly line.  Together, they shared the optimism of a nation that triumphed over a Depression and  fascism.  They believed in an America where hard work paid off, responsibility was rewarded, and anyone could make it if they tried--no matter who you were, where you came from, or how you started out.
These values gave rise to the largest middle class and the strongest economy the world has ever known.  It was here, in America, that the most productive workers and innovative companies turned out the best products on Earth, and every American shared in that pride and success--from those in executive suites to middle management to those on the factory floor.  If you gave it your all, you'd take enough home to raise your family, send your kids to shcool, have your health care covered, and put a little away for retirement.
   I don't know about your family, but that was not true of mine.  We had no health insurance and there were five of us kids.  We got no school lunches-we brought sandwiches from home.  There was surely no savings for retirement.  Who is he talking about...the Henry Fords?
   Besides, when did President Obama decide he was proud of America?  In February of 2009, his wife was proud of America FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HER ADULT LIFE.  He is married to her.  One has to assume he felt the same, which means he was ashamed of America.  So, why is he talking about "American pride"?

Today, we are still home to the world's most productive workers and innovative companies.  But for most Americans, the basic bargain that made this country great has eroded.  Long before the recession hit, hard work stopped paying off for too many people.  fewer and fewer of the folks who contributed to the success of our economy actually benefitted from that success.  Those at the very top grew wealthier from their incomes and investments than ever before.  But everyone else struggled with costs that were growing and paychecks that weren't--and too many families found themselves racking up more and more debt just to keep up.
   Of course, there are also those who have never put in any hard work.  And those who snuck into this country and have been living off the hard work of others for far too long.  Just look at President Obama's Aunt.  She has been living off welfare since she came here, and was illegal.  But our government just keeps taking from us and giving to them.
   Besides, today we are not home to the worls;'s most productive workers.  I posted on this subject back on September 7, 2011 titled "Loss of Global Standing".  So, as you have been with me, you are aware that when our President said this, it was untrue.

   The Washington Post reported today that our government  ran a $139 BILLION deficit in November, marking the 38th straight month in the red according to preliminary estimates by the Congressional Budget Office released Wednesday.  Deficit spending means spending money you don't have, like running debt up on a credit card, when you have no income to pay for it.
      the Post goes on to say the gobernment hasn't run a surplus since September of 2008, just before the Wall Street collapse near the end of the Bush Administration.  That is by far the longest streak in records dating back to the 1980's.  Before the current streak, the government had never gone an entire year without running a surplus in at least one month.
   President Obama took office in January of 2009.   He has never had a surplus in his administration.  And all he wants to do is spend more money!  He gives it away like it is candy!  The only ones he doesn't give money to is "the middle class", who pays the taxes.

   The following story is brought to you from the Heartlander:

By Benjamin Domenech, Heartlander
According to data collected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Medicare has spent more than $240 million of taxpayer money on penis pumps for elderly men over the past decade, and will surpass a quarter of a billion dollars this year for costs since 2001.
The cost to taxpayers for the pumps more than quadrupled during that period, from a low of $11 million in 2001 to a high of more than $47 million in 2010. And these represent only the costs for external devices, technically classified as “Male Vacuum Erection Systems,” not implantable devices or oral drugs such as Viagra.
Easy to Qualify
In order to obtain a pump, according to CMS’s Local Coverage Determination (LCD) revised in October this year, the “patient’s medical record must contain sufficient documentation of the patient’s medical condition to substantiate the necessity for the type and quantity of items ordered,” noting erectile dysfunction (ED) can “commonly occur in men in the Medicare age group.”
If a medical exam and history shows a senior on Medicare meets the relevant threshold—a diagnosis of ED—he becomes eligible for a wide range of options under the Medicare Prosthetic benefit. Treatment Options covered by Medicare include “oral medications, pharmacological injections, intra-urethral suppositories, vacuum erection devices, and implantable penile pumps.”
But are these devices really “medically necessary”? Health Care News contacted CMS to ask whether they have audited the medical files to determine medical necessity. CMS has not provided a response at the time of publication.

I knew a man who had his implant get infected.  Then medicare paid for the hospital stay, the doctors, etc., tens of thousands of dollars, to have his penis removed.  And Washington just keeps spending.  Do seniors in nursing homes or convicted felon child molesters really need such "medical necessities"?
This is not comparable to women with breast cancer who have breast implants.  The breast implants are not necessary for a woman to force herself on a man.

      The Los Angeles Times posted an article by Ken Dilanian on 12/4/11 titled, "Mysterious blasts, slayings suggest covert efforts in Iran".  The report is as follows:  Reporting from Washington--At an Iranian military base 30 miles west of Tehran, engineers were working on weapons that the armed forces chief of staff had boasted could give Israel a "strong punch in the mouth." 
   But then then a huge explosion ripped through the Revolutionary Guard Corps base on Nov. 12, leveling most of the buildings.  Government officials said 17 people were killed, including a FOUNDER of Iran's ballistic missile program, Gen. Hassan Tehrani Moghaddam.
  Iranian officials called the blast an accident.  Perhaps it was.
   Decades of international sanctions have left Iran struggling to obtain technology and spare parts for military programs and commercial industries, leading in some cases to dangerous working conditions. 
   However, many former U. S. intelligence officials and Iran experts believe that the explosion--the most destructive of at least two dozen unexplained blasts in the last two years--was part of a COVERT effort by the U. S., Israel and others to disable Iran's nuclear and missile programs.  The goal, the experts say, is to derail what those nations fear is Iran's quest for nuclear weapons capability and to stave off an Israeli or U.S. airstrike to eliminate or lessen the threat.
   "It looks like the 21st form of war," said Patrick Clawson, who directs the Iran Security Initiative at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a Washington think tank.  "It does appear that there is a campaign of assassinations and cyber war, as well as the semi-acknowledged campaign of sabotage."
   Or perhaps not.  Any such operation would be highly classified, and those who might know aren't talking.  The result is Washington's latest national security parlor game--trying to figure out who, if anyone, is responsible for the unusual incidents.
   For years, the U.S. and its allies have sought to hinder Iran's weapons programs by secretly supplying faulty parts, plans or software, former intelligence officials say.  No proof of sabotage has emerged, but Iran's nuclear program clearly has hit obstacles that thwarted progress in recent years.
   "We definitely are doing that," said Art Keller, former CIA case officer who worked on Iran.  "It's pretty much the stated mission of the CIA counter-proliferation division to do what it takes to slow--Iran's weapons of mass destruction program."
   Many Western experts are convinced that American and Israeli engineers secretly fed the Stuxnet computer worm into Iran's nuclear program in 2010.  The virus reportedly caused centrifuges used to enrich uranium to spin out of control and shatter.  Neither the U.S. nor Israeli government has acknowledged any role in the apparent cyber-attack. 
   Nor did anyone claim responsibility after two senior nuclear physicists were killed, and a third wounded, by bombs attached to their cars or nearby motorcycles in January and November last year.
   Militants waving pictures of one of the slain scientists stormed the British Embassy in Tehran last week, setting fires and causing extensive damage.  Several European countries recalled their envoys from Iran after the British government closed its embassy and expelled Iranian gas pipelines, oil installations and military facilities.
   In October, Iranian news services reported three such explosions in a 24-hour period.  The blasts killed two people.  Another large blast was reported last week in Isfahan, Iran's third-largest city.
   Some analysts suspect the the CIA and Israel's intelligence agency, Mossad, are involved , with possible help from the MEK, a fringe Iranian group that the State Department lists as a terrorist organization, although it has many allies in Washington's foreign policy establishment.  Based in Iraq, the group is believed to have links to dissident networks inside Iran.
   Iran claims to have arrested dozens of CIA informants in recent months, and U.S. officials acknowledge that a handful of informants in Iran have been exposed.  What they did, or where, is unknown.  In October, U.S. officials announced that they had uncovered an Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington.
   Some analysts caution against assuming the CIA is orchestrating all the attacks in Iran, arguing is gives U.S. intelligence far too much credit.  But that doesn't preclude U.S. support for allied spy services in Europe and the Middle East that also target Iran.  still, there is more speculation at this point than hard evidence.
  A cyber expert who works closely with U.S. intelligence said he is convinced that Israel, not the U.S., launched the Stuxnet attack because U.S. government lawyers would not approve use of a computer virus that could spread far beyond the intended target, as Stuxnet apparently did.  That caution, of course, presumes the lawyers knew the virus would spread, and that's not clear.  The expert would not speak publicly about classified matters.
   Whether the White House would authorize the targeted killing of Iranian scientists is far from certain.  An executive order signed by President Reagan in 1981 prohibits direct or indirect involvement in assassinations, although the term is not defined.
   President Obama has authorized the killing of Al Qaeda members and other suspected militants, including at least one U.S. citizen in Yemen.
   Some analysts claim that the U.S. would not back a bombing campaign that has killed Iranian workers at oil refineries and other civilian sties.  It would amount to sponsoring terrorism, a charge Washington regularly levels at Tehran.
   "I do not believe that the U.S. has participated in either attacking scientists or physical attacks against Iranian nuclear facilities," said Greg Thielmann, a former State Department Intelligence official who helped expose the faulty intelligence cited by the George W. Bush administration before the 2003 invasion of Iraq.  "Selling them bad parts, introducing malware--that does seem to me within the realm of what one might expect from U.S. intelligence activities."
   Reuel Marc Gerecht, a former CIA operative who specialized on Iran, said he doesn't believe that the CIA could mount a sophisticated covert campaign of sabotage inside Iran, where the U.S. has not had an embassy since 1979.  Gerecht long has urged the CIA to mount more aggressive operations against Iran.
   "I just think trying to maintain and run a paramilitary covert action group inside Iran is beyond America's covert capacity," he said.
   What ever the cause, headlines about unsolved killings, unexplained explosions and sinister computer viruses have rattled Iranians, especially those who work in the nuclear program, analysts said.
   Perhaps that's the point.
   "All these things have a profound effect," Clawson said.  "You have to watch your back when you go to work.  You're not certain what's going to happen when you turn on your computer.  You're not certain whether you can talk to your colleagues."

So, is our President going off on his own to unilaterally declare war on Iran, or has he consulted Congress?
