#40 BREAKING- 2004 AP “Keynan-Born Obama” Phrase NOT From Associated Press: May 18, 2012— I call  this post the reason I never get linkage from Drudge. On May 18th Drudge had a banner headline proclaiming that an AP story had called Obama Kenyan-born in 2004 , they reference a piece the Kenyan Daily Standard in 2004 which begins:

Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take
over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped
out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club

The story didn’t feel right for me so I checked to see if it ran in other places..that’s when I made a discovery.

#39 Alan Colmes is a Despicable Low Life Scumbag! January 2, 2012—On Jan 2 Colmes faced off with National Review editor Rich Lowry,  he responded
to a question on whether or not undecided voters will truly stick by
Santorum when it’s time to cast a vote. Colmes answered, saying that his
rising support will stop short once people “get a load of some of the
crazy things he’s said and done, like taking his two-hour-old baby when
it died right after child birth home and played with it so that his
other children would know that the child was real.” That wasn’t exactly true..and it was a severe cheap shot.  It wasn’t until the presidental debate at Hofstra that I learned that Alan Colmes is a Despicable Low Life Scumbag, who thinks so much of himself that he wears sunglasses INDOORS just to look cool.

#38 Can You Judge A President by His Jew-Hating Friends?
March 8, 2012 The release of the Barack Obama/Derrick Bell Harvard tape was seen by many
as another example of the President’s long history associating with
radicals. There is another interpretation however. When Obama urged
people to open up their hearts and minds to Bell it was another case of
him “cozying” up to an Anti-Semite.  Understand we are not talking about
people who are Anti-Israel (although there is a huge crossover of the
two) but people who regularly use Anti-Semitic stereotypes or more
direct derogatory comments about Jews. Here are some examples:

#37 Eleven Key Things You Should Know About Romney’s Taxes September  21,2012 When Romney released his taxes the released everything except a HS
diploma, kindergarten report card,  the results of the driver’s test he
took when he was 17,  and a Bar Mitzvah certificate. The campaign told
me there is no way he is going to release a Bar Mitzvah
certificate-turns out Romney is not Jewish (who knew?) My wife the CPA was too busy to give me an executive report of what the
Governor has released, but I was able to Tweak out some very key
points from the candidate’s release.

 #36 The Disgusting Exploitation of the Trayvon Martin Case March 26, 2012  Nothing could stop professional agitators from acting like vultures,
exploiting  the death of Trayvon Martin and the horror felt by his
family for their own personal agenda, and this post give some examples.

#35 Report: GM LOSES $49k On Every Volt it Builds September 10, 2012 This report proves once again that when the government picks winners and losers…it picks losers.

#34 The Progressive Media’s Still Covering-up Their “Precious” Helen Thomas’ Hatred April 28, 2012 In the two-years since the now-famous Helen Thomas video was released on this site Thomas, now unencumbered with a “front line” media job has made new anti-Semitic comments but the media still tries to protect her by claiming her slanders are political, not hateful. Their claim is that she isn’t anti-Semitic but simply anti-Israel—a dangerous affront to the truth.

 #33 Obama Hasn’t Received His Daily Economic Briefing Since April 2011  July 24, 2012
Something is missing. If you look at Barack Obama’s calendar for 26th of
April, 2011 you will see on his schedule at 10 AM “The President
receives the Economic Daily Briefing,” after that nothing. According to
the daily schedule released by the White House, Barack Obama hasn’t
received his “daily” economic briefing for the past 15 months (The White House, Accessed 7/23/12). And he still says he is concentrating on the economy?

#32 Democrats Strip Pro-Israel Language From Platform September 4, 2012 This story broken on this site and on a Breitbart post penned by yours truly,  became national news and dominated the story of the Democratic National Convention for its first two days (Dave Weigel of Slate called me a troll because I broke the story) The Democrats pulled four pro-Israel planks from their platform–after all the attention they added back only one (the Capital of Israel is Jerusalem), despite the fact the convention overwhelmingly voted no (and they booed when the item was added anyway). 

#31 Forty Years After Munich Massacre:The IOC Fails the Eleven Athletes Again July 5, 2012 Almost 40 years ago, Yassir Arafat sent five Palestinian Terrorists
into an Olympic Village dedicated to peace and international
cooperation. Their successful mission was to shock the world by
kidnapping and killing the Israeli Olympic team. This was the first
terrorist tragedy played out live and worldwide on TV. We all remember
the picture of the Ski-masked terrorist on the balcony.

The Olympic committee did not feel the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes
were important enough to cancel or even delay the Olympic games, after
all, they were only Jews. This year’s London Games represents the 40th anniversary of that
horrible massacre. Throughout the world (except for the Arab Nations of
course) there have been calls for a moment of silence to remember the
slaughtered eleven athletes, but to no avail.

Tomorrow look for numbers 21-30
