Guess who ordered nude body scanners Attorney with multiple constitutional claims confirms orders come straight from the top
Editor’s Note: Some of the links in this report lead to graphic images that have been taken from current airport security scanning procedures. Use caution in viewing the links.
A constitutional attorney preparing to legally challenge the Transportation Security Administration’s enhanced screening procedures – which reveal a virtually nude image of passengers – says airline passengers have Barack Obama to thank for the process.
“Legislation has been proposed to mandate full-body scanners and make them the primary screening method in all U.S. airports by 2013, but Congress has yet to act on it,” John Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, wrote in a new commentary.
“So we can thank President Obama for this frontal assault on our Fourth Amendment rights. Mind you, this is the same man who insisted that ‘we will not succumb to a siege mentality that sacrifices the open society and liberties and values that we cherish as Americans,'” Whitehead said.
“Yet in the wake of the bumbling underwear bomber’s botched Christmas Day attempt to blow up a Detroit-bound plane, Obama directed the Homeland Security Department ‘to acquire $1 billion in advanced-technology equipment, including body scanners, for screening passengers,'” he continued.

World Net Daily is reporting that a Soros funded group, Institute for Policy Studies believes that ‘Progressives Won!’ and because they only lost three members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, they feel justified in writing as many executive orders as possible and ‘pushing’ Obama to do the right thing and sign them now that the blue-dogs have been eliminated. How’s that for some interesting circular thinking America? You must want progressive mandates because you didn’t vote Nancy and her anti-Constitutional cohorts out. Psychotropic drugs anyone?
Dead weight gone. Good Riddance. The blame for the stalemate to come can now fall squarely where it belongs…on the anti-progressive, anti-democratic, anti-populist Republican members of Congress.
Our work is now finally beginning. The veil of a happy Democratic governing majority is finally lifted. We didn’t have it then; We don’t have it now. But what we do have now is a more solidly progressive bunch of Dems in Congress and a president presumably less encumbered by the false illusion that playing nice will get him a date with the other team.
Let’s throw our support unabashedly behind the Congressional Progressive Caucus and let’s push Obama to finally do the right thing through as many Executive Orders as we can present to him.
(Editor’s Note: Please remember that progressives like Soros and the groups he funds are only oneagenda at the table. They aren’t the only ones playing the game of ‘Divide, Conquer, and Pillage America’. My money is still on the international central bankers who, in my opinion, are using the left and the far right to do their dirty work.)
NEW YORK – It was progressives who won the mid-term elections, particularly incumbents in a socialist-founded congressional caucus that emerged from last week’s ballots virtually unscathed, boasted an article published by the George Soros-funded Institute for Policy Studies, a Marxist-oriented think-tank in Washington, D.C.
The article recommends that President Obama govern from executive order to push through a progressive agenda.
“Progressives won in the 2010 mid-term elections,” wrote Karen Dolan, a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, or IPS, and director of the Cities for Progress and Cities for Peace projects based at the radical organization.
“The Congressional Progressive Caucus, the largest caucus in the House Democratic Caucus at over 80 members, emerged virtually unscathed, losing only three members,” she wrote, in the piece published on the IPS website.
“By contrast, the conservative Blue Dog Democratic caucus was more than sliced in half from 54 members to only 26. Further, of the 34 conservative Dems who voted against Obama’s Healthcare Reform, a mere 12 won re-election,” she wrote.
Dolan declared that “our work is now finally beginning.”
“The veil of a happy Democratic governing majority is finally lifted. We didn’t have it then; We don’t have it now. But what we do have now is a more solidly progressive bunch of Dems in Congress and a president presumably less encumbered by the false illusion that playing nice will get him a date with the other team.”
She went on to recommend that progressives “throw our support unabashedly behind the Congressional Progressive Caucus, and let’s push Obama to finally do the right thing through as many Executive Orders as we can present to him.”
WND reported the Congressional Progressive Caucus was founded by the Democratic Socialists of America, or DSA.
Has long supported Communist and anti-American causes around the world
The Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) was founded in 1963 as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization with seed money (derived from a fortune made in cosmetics sales under the Faberge trade name) from the Samuel Rubin Foundation. Samuel Rubin (1901-1978) was a Russian Bolshevik and the father of Cora Weiss, who headed the Samuel Rubin Foundation from its inception and is currently the principal financier of IPS. Weiss’ husband, Peter, is Chairman of the IPS Board of Trustees. He is also a member of the National Lawyers Guild and the National Emergency Civil Liberties Committee, both of which were created as Communist Party fronts. The Weisses selected Richard J. Barnet and Marcus Raskin to be the first co-directors of IPS, with the aim of transforming the United States by altering public attitudes, changing laws, and reversing foreign policy through an Academy that reached every nexus of the national nervous system.
(Reuters) – President Barack Obama, still smarting from his Democrats’ big losses in congressional elections, said on Friday the United States cannot afford to get mired in legislative gridlock for the next two years while countries like China forge ahead.
Three days after voters punished Obama’s party for the weak economy, he called for “putting politics aside” as he struck a conciliatory tone with victorious Republicans, saying he was open to hearing their ideas for tackling stubbornly high unemployment. (Editor’s Note: BWWWAAAAHHHHHH!)
Obama now faces a threat by Republican leaders to try to roll back his signature policies, including a healthcare overhaul and Wall Street reform, and to block his agenda for the rest of his term.
“We can’t spend the next two years mired in gridlock. Other countries like China aren’t standing still so we can’t stand still either. We’ve got to move forward,” Obama told reporters before departing on a 10-day Asia tour.
I have a novel idea for you, Barack. When the House and Senate pass constitutionally written bills that are supported by The American People, such as repealing Obamacare, FinReg, auditing the Fed, abolish-ion of the Fed and IRS, yada, yada, yada….
Shut The Fuck Up And Sign It!
We no longer have the luxury of debating the merits of social justice and redistribution of the wealth that has been shipped overseas; the economic clock has run out (as Ben can attest with his trillions of dollars of fake money).
100 years of ponzi scheme, bullshit legislation has finally caught up with us.
Glenn starts this program with the general news of the very expensive trip that Obama is taking to India and Indonesia, and breaks it down further along in the program. His first topic is all about the Fed’s QE2, how it is devaluing the dollar, causing commodity prices to skyrocket and how all of our food is going to become more expensive. Here is a news flash Glenn; I covered this on October 20th with the article Obama And The Federal Reserve’s Hidden Taxes with the proof of $14 coffee here in Hawaii. Market Ticker’s Karl Denninger has been writing about this for months.
The General Assembly elected Colombia, Germany, India, Portugal and South Africa to serve as non-permanent members of the Security Council for two-year terms starting on 1 January 2011. The newly elected countries will replace Austria, Japan, Mexico, Turkey and Uganda.
My spidey-sense tells me that Obama does not plan to run for a second term if he can move up to ‘King of The World’. Considering what the global elite banksters are doing to our dollar, and the push for a global currency, why wouldn’t Obama go for the next brass ring as the ultimate citizen of the world? Think Mishy is going to sit still as First Lady when she can be Empress? Think about the Narcissist-in-Chief’s general demeanor; who else would look at the Presidency of the United States as a stepping stone to something else?
The last topic covers the losses that George Soros suffered during the election a few days ago. I want to point out that the reason the California Pot Legalization proposition was defeated was because only a certain number of licenses to grow were going to be issued and guess who they were going to? Yes, you guessed it, Big Agra. The locals mobilized to stop this prop and Big Ag from taking over what will be an incredible revenue stream.
…and Obama is still in denial. Anybody with half a brain knows that Obama will not move to the center. That will make the left wing of the Big Government Party very happy and will ensure more trash being taking out in 2012.
John Boehner and Michael Steele on election night. The first four minutes of this video is Megyn Kelly interviewing Michael Steel. Mr. Boehner’s speech starts at 4:50 with the usual ‘change’ rhetoric but it does have a memorable line concerning Barry’s agenda:
The peoples’ priorities will be our priorities, and the peoples’ agenda will be our agenda…While our new majority will server as your voice in the peoples’ house, we must remember it is the president who sets the agenda for our government. The American people have sent an unmistakable message to him tonight, and that message is:Change Course.
(Update, 11.4.2010: The White House is now saying that this figure is incorrect and will not state how much the trip is going to cost. They are saying that the $200 million a day figure is a rumor. I guess we will have to wait and see how much it actually does cost us at a time when the true unemployment is in double digits and millions of Americans are in foreclosure. $200 million a day is not that farfetched an idea when we are talking about the Narcissist-in-Chief and his Empress.)
Yes, we really do want our sultanPresident very own Xerxes to travel in style with (6 oops) 40 airplanes, 3 disassembled Marine One helicopters, 850+ hotel rooms split between two hotels, 3000 SS and assorted attendants, etc, etc, etc., with a $200 million dollar tab per day for the 3 day trip. We really do want to reward Chairman Zero for his handling of the economy, other domestic issues, and foreign diplomatic situations over the last two years, don’t we? Doesn’t he deserve it? We can afford it; just make sure to use powered milk, better yet; make the sacrifice for our great leader and only partake of bread and water.
I’m convinced he isn’t coming back which would be an interesting bittersweet moment; no more Obama, but Biden running the country. Which is worse?
What would one expect the President of the United States and Leader Of The Free World to be doing on the day of the biggest election in our lifetimes? Maybe something to do with the election, the economy, unemployment, inflation, world conflict, etc.
Nope, he’s doing a radio interview with the very famous, talented, and totally irrelevant Ryan Seacrest.
Smells like desperation, doesn’t it? This administration absolutely needs to hire Martha Stewart for scheduling and protocol. She might actually get this teenager to understand what is befitting a president and what is not. I, once again, am totally embarrassed by the guy that was installed in the White House in 2008. (more…)
I may not agree that John Boehner should be Speaker as my personal preference is for a true Constitutionalist like Ron Paul to be wielding the gavel, BUT he does understand that Americans are NOT the enemy and shouldn’t be punished.
Yet another open mouth/insert foot truthful moment from the Narcissist-in-Chief.
(Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Monday he should not have used the word “enemies” to describe his political opponents as Republicans sought to make an issue of the comment a day before congressional elections.
Obama, in an interview with talk radio host Michael Baisden, said, “I probably should have used the word ‘opponents’ instead of enemies.”
He was backtracking from a comment he made a week ago in an interview with Univision radio in which he sought to persuade Hispanics to vote for Democratic candidates instead of Republicans.
“If Latinos sit out the election instead of, ‘we’re going to punish our enemies and we’re going to reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’ — if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s going to be harder,” Obama had said.
Since when does an ‘American President’ speak about punishing other Americans? Who the Frak is this guy? Stalin, Lenin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Chavez?
