Anti-torture activists march to White House

WASHINGTON (AP) — More than 100 anti-torture activists are marching from the U.S. Capitol building to the White House.

Protesters gathered at the Capitol on Thursday. They say they are protesting detention policies in the United States and what they call the government’s refusal to prosecute torture.

The marchers are wearing orange jumpsuits and black hoods over their heads to represent Guantanamo Bay detainees. Some have signs on their backs bearing the names of inmates who have been cleared for release but remain in custody.

The activists say they support a criminal inquiry into torture under the Bush administration. They say President Obama has been reluctant to begin such an investigation.

Anti-torture activists march to White House

How many times have we heard it said, “The MSM is in the tank for the left”? It’s true you know, and this story prove it.

How much coverage did somewhere close to 1 MILLION Tax Day TEA Protesters get in the national eye? How many BIG news stories did you see on April 16th reporting the peaceful TEA protesters? Other than FOX News, which was a HUGE supporter of the TEA events, not very much! Even the POTUS claimed to have no knowledge of the TEA Party movement on April 15th.

100 America hating moonbats show up to protest what The Obamessiah perceives to be torture and the MEDIA goes nuts getting it out there! 1 MILLION Tax Day TEA Party attending American Patriots stage a nationwide protest and we’re a figment of the imagination.

“The White House says the president is unaware of the tea parties and will hold his own event today,� ABC’s Dan Harris said on “Good Morning America� on April 15.

Source: Obama Unaware Of Tea Party Protests?

Can we believe so much as one word coming from the Obama administration? I think not! I honestly don’t think Obama knows the truth, not in any way. He knows what his aids want him to know, he says what his aids tell him to say and he reads what they have on the teleprompter for him, but Obama knew about the TEA Party movement.

Make NO mistake about it, Obama KNOWS, the MSM KNOWS, this nation KNOWS, and they are a lot more afraid of 1 MILLION American Patriots than they would like for us to believe. The NEXT series of TEA Parties needs to be a bit more forceful, not violent, but a lot more forceful, a lot more target specific, and we need to turn out in numbers that can’t be ignored!

Obama says waterboarding was torture

Obama says waterboarding was torture

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama said Wednesday night that waterboarding authorized by former President George W. Bush was torture and that the information it gained from terror suspects could have been obtained by other means. “In some cases, it may be harder,” he conceded at a White House news conference capping a whirlwind first 100 days in office.

Obama also expressed much greater optimism now than a month ago that Chrysler could remain a “going concern,” possibly without filing for bankruptcy or with a “very quick” one. Obama did not say so, but Italian automaker Fiat Group SpA is expected to sign a partnership agreement with Chrysler LLC by Thursday as part of negotiations to keep the struggling U.S. automaker alive without bankruptcy protection.

The president gave assurance that one way or another Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal would not fall into the hands of Islamic extremists. He said he was confident “primarily, initially” because he believes Pakistan will handle the issue on its own. But he left the door open to eventual U.S. action to secure the weapons if need be.

The prime-time news conference was the third of Obama’s presidency and the first not dominated by a recession that has thrown millions of Americans out of work.

Obama says waterboarding was torture

I would love to be able to get an honest answer from Barack Hussein Obama, but I don’t think he has the TRUTH in him.

TORTURE –noun 1. the act of inflicting excruciating pain, as punishment or revenge, as a means of getting a confession or information, or for sheer cruelty.
2. a method of inflicting such pain.
3. Often, tortures. the pain or suffering caused or undergone.
4. extreme anguish of body or mind; agony.
5. a cause of severe pain or anguish.

And you know what else I would love to ask this America hating poser of a president? Mr. President, WHAT do you think the victims of 9-11 experienced!! That’s the question I want to ask. I want to know if he even cares about what went through the minds of American citizens that we’re trapped in the upper floors of the WTC, in the destruction of the Pentagon and those folks that died in the crashes of the airliners.

I seriously wonder, just who’s side is this disgrace of a POTUS really on? His AG and Secretary of State can’t wait to free the prisoners at Guantanamo. They are just eaten up in anticipation of being able to prosecute any and everyone connected TO the Bush administration that may have even been remotely tied in to what Obama and Company believe to be torture.

I do NOT subscribe to conspiracy theories as a rule, but it’s so very coincidental that as this nation is suffering the WORST presidency in it’s history, as we are suffering a terrible recession, as we are living some of the worst times in modern American history, up pops the SWINE FLU.

Ya know, things have really changed in this nation, it once was said that a black man would become president of the United States when pigs could fly. 100 days into Obama’s presidency and what do we have? Swine flu. Coincidence maybe??

FACT CHECK: Obama disowns deficit he helped shape

Obama disowns deficit he helped shape

WASHINGTON (AP) – “That wasn’t me,” President Barack Obama said on his 100th day in office, disclaiming responsibility for the huge budget deficit waiting for him on Day One. It actually was him – and the other Democrats controlling Congress the previous two years – who shaped a budget so out of balance.

And as a presidential candidate and president-elect, he backed the twilight Bush-era stimulus plan that made the deficit deeper, all before he took over and promoted spending plans that have made it much deeper still.

Obama met citizens at an Arnold, Mo., high school Wednesday in advance of his prime-time news conference. Both forums were a platform to review his progress at the 100-day mark and look ahead.

At various times, he brought an air of certainty to ambitions that are far from cast in stone.

FACT CHECK: Obama disowns deficit he helped shape

Barack Hussein Obama is nothing more than a LIAR! Obama is trying to make himself look as if he is totally innocent and like he is the one sent to save us. His divine mission in life. Of course we ALL know that Obama is as full of SHIT as a Christmas turkey is dressing!

The poser in chief wants the American people to love him, he expects our adoration, unconditional love and a vote of confidence from the USA. He doesn’t want much, he just wants it ALL, and he’s not earning anything, he is demanding, and lying his way into the most devastating crash this nation has ever seen. And when it does happen, of course it won’t be HIS fault, I think we ALL know that.

Congress controls the purse strings, not the president, and it was under Democratic control for Obama’s last two years as Illinois senator. Obama supported the emergency bailout package in President George W. Bush’s final months – a package Democratic leaders wanted to make bigger.

Read this story from AP, it’s one of the best I have ever seen from them, it may not be online too long.
