Brandon Walker interviews Dr. Jim Garrow, philanthropist and worker for one of the largest non-profit organizations on the planet to save female children from slaughter in China. He has been featured on several media outlets throughout the world. As a guest of Now the End Begins radio program he drops a bombshell on the world here. Dr. Garrow claims that up to a week ago, he was covert CIA. To top it off, he states he knows that Obama ordered the murders of Tom Clancy and Andrew Breitbart!
The New York Times released a major 5,000 word investigative report exposing Obama administration appointees’ abuse of a federal program to compensate farmers who had faced discrimination. Back in 2010, however, the Times had urged for faster compensation and less bureaucratic roadblocks for the “Pigford” defendants:
The compensation effort sprang from a desire to redress what the government and a federal judge agreed was a painful legacy of bias against African-Americans by the Agriculture Department. But an examination by The New York Times shows that it became a runaway train, driven by racial politics, pressure from influential members of Congress and law firms that stand to gain more than $130 million in fees. In the past five years, it has grown to encompass a second group of African-Americans as well as Hispanic, female and Native American farmers. In all, more than 90,000 people have filed claims. The total cost could top $4.4 billion.
From the start, the claims process prompted allegations of widespread fraud and criticism that its very design encouraged people to lie: because relatively few records remained to verify accusations, claimants were not required to present documentary evidence that they had been unfairly treated or had even tried to farm. Agriculture Department reviewers found reams of suspicious claims, from nursery-school-age children and pockets of urban dwellers, sometimes in the same handwriting with nearly identical accounts of discrimination.
Yet those concerns were played down as the compensation effort grew. Though the government has started requiring more evidence to support some claims, even now people who say they were unfairly denied loans can collect up to $50,000 with little documentation.
And what a fraud it was. The government has spent over $1.33 billion compensating Hispanic and female farmers for federal loan discrimination despite a 2010 Supreme Court ruling dismissing those claims, which didn’t seem to bother the Times until now.
The Times also singled out Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, who they said was a driving force behind the settlement. Vilsack told the Times that “We weren’t just writing checks for the heck of it…People were not treated fairly, and in fact, even today there are damages as a result of folks who weren’t treated fairly.”
Since it’s the government, I suppose a little fraud is to be expected, as long as the overall intent was theoretically good.
While it’s great to see this story being reported by The New York Times, it’s a shame that Andrew Breitbart isn’t around to revel in the vindication of his efforts to expose the fraud in the Pigford settlement.

WASHINGTON — A colleague of the late conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart is asking a federal court of appeals to throw out a defamation case brought against him by former government employee Shirley Sherrod, saying the lawsuit violates the blogger’s right to freedom of speech.
Sherrod was ousted from her job as an Agriculture Department rural development official in 2010 after Breitbart posted an edited video of Sherrod, who is black, supposedly making racist remarks. She sued Breitbart, his employee Larry O’Connor and an unnamed defendant for defamation and emotional distress after USDA officials asked her to resign and the video ignited a racial firestorm. Sherrod’s lawyers say the unnamed defendant is the person whom they believe passed the video on to Breitbart, though the person’s identity remains unknown.
Breitbart died unexpectedly a year ago, and his status in the case is unclear as his family does not appear to have notified the court of an estate that can be sued.
The case argued before the court of appeals Friday is one of the first high-profile federal lawsuits to test the freedom of speech rights of bloggers. Backed by large news organizations including the New York Times Co., Washington Post Co. and Dow Jones & Company, Inc., who have filed friend-of-the-court briefs in the case, O’Connor’s lawyers argued to have the case dismissed under a District of Columbia statute that aims to prevent the silencing of critics through lawsuits. A federal district court judge rejected their motion to dismiss, citing timing and jurisdictional issues, prompting the appeal.
The lawyers told the court of appeals that O’Connor and Breitbart, before he died, stood by the content, saying the blog post was opinion.

This past weekend, I saw the late Andrew Breitbart’s swan song Occupy Unmasked that exposed the Occupy movement for what it is: an orchestrated distraction by the hard Left and unions.
In a way, it was like preaching to the choir. I already knew the mainstream media had coordinated with the hard Left (including anarchists) and unions to make “Occupy” what Time magazine called “The Story of the Year.”
I already knew that the mainstream media was hiding the rapes and murders and OD’s and rats and STDs. Hiding the fact that college students were being bussed in; and the homeless and unemployed were being paid to act as props for the real Occupiers: the SEIU and anarchists.
Yes, the same SEIU that gave $100 million to Obama in 2008. The same anarchists that are a part of Obama’s “community organizing” circle of radicals.
But seeing the film moved this knowledge from the head to the heart; that is, enabled me to feel it viscerally.
And America, that is a scary feeling. For SEIU and the radical Left want one thing and one thing only: the destruction of America. To destroy America so that their perfect socialist utopia will rise from the ashes.
What the details of this socialist utopia will be doesn’t matter.
What matters now is destruction.
It reminds me of those “This is your brain on drugs” commercials of the 1980s. A commentator shows a pan filled with hot butter and says: “This is your brain.” He then cracks an egg into the pan, where the egg sizzles and sputters, never again to return to its original form, and says “This is your brain on drugs. Any questions?”
Another term of Obama will make America’s “fundamental transformation” complete. America will go beyond the point of no return. SEIU, the radical Left, and their dear leader, Barack Hussein Obama, will finish the job of destroying this nation and remake it into something unrecognizable, never to return again to the greatest nation on earth.
God help us if they are successful.
Wyandotte, OK – Why would Tea Party favorites like Rep. Ryan and Allen West vote for bills like the Patriot Act and NDAA, leaving many of us scratching our heads and questioning their loyalty to the Constitution? I think I know the answer.
I met Rep. Paul Ryan when I was running for Congress at the time, challenging Blue Dog Democrat Dan Boren. It was during the last week of March 2010 in Oklahoma City. It took me several hours to get there, but for me, it was worth the drive and the price for a ticket ($100 or so). Ryan was the keynote speaker for the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs’ 2010 citizenship dinner. Ryan focused on the passage of Obamacare for most of his address, calling the bill a “travesty” and said it was up to the people to start a new American Revolution, but a peaceful one at the ballot boxes. He said, “We need men and women who go to Congress and are running to stand up and fight for what this country is all about.”
Of course, I agreed with that and felt like it was me he was talking about, but I had been disappointed only minutes before when I introduced myself and told him I was a tea party leader running against Dan Boren. He responded with, “Oh, he’s a great guy. We’re friends. You know my wife is from Oklahoma; we have relatives here.”
The photographer snapped the souvenir photo (above) and Rep. Ryan reached for the hand of the next person in line, essentially dismissing me. It wasn’t what I had expected, or maybe more accurately, what I had hoped for, but it was typical of how politicians don’t listen to nobodies.
I wasn’t a nobody to hundreds of people who knew me or at least knew my record. I gained national recognition in the Tea Party movement when I held up my husband’s and son’s birth certificates from Kapiolani Hospital in Hawai’i and declared Obama’s online forgery as “a piece of junk.”
Long story short, I dropped out of the race and supported constitutional conservative Dr. Charles Thompson. I felt driven to continue my efforts to expose Obama’s fraudulent birth and other false narratives about his background. I was unique. I was the only person I knew from Hawai’i speaking out publicly, bad or good, about Obama, and I knew why. Getting the truth told was a losing proposition as I fought a barrage of expletives; “birther,” “racist,” “wingnut,” “conspiracy theorist,” and all demeaning names and charges intended to intimidate me into silence. I wasn’t alone. Anyone challenging Obama caught the same flak.
On March 1, 2012, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, AZ, held a press conference and declared that the birth certificate posted on the WhiteHouse.gov website on April 27, 2011, was a manufactured forgery. Earlier that same day, Andrew Breitbart, king of alternative media, collapsed and died. A shockwave went through conservative America. Sheriff Arpaio’s stunning news got a small mention by Brett Baier in his “Grapevine” segment on FOX News with a final comment intended to mar the sheriff’s credibility by stating he is under indictment by Attorney General Eric Holder for “civil rights violations” and other (trumped up) charges.
Sheriff Joe held another press conference on July 17th, again confirming Obama’s birth certificate to be a forgery. Even more evidence had been found in Hawai’i by Mike Zullo and his investigative team. The Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse now had boxes of evidence but in a quandary as to where it should go. Obviously, it couldn’t go to Eric Holder’s Justice Department, so he asked for a congressional hearing. He asked, but by now, he was marginalized like the rest of us who challenge the most powerful man on earth.
On Tuesday, August 7th, I went to Claremore, OK to Sen. Tom Coburn’s recess Town Hall. I went prepared with evidence to counter the claims he made to me in a letter responding to my request to hear Sheriff Arpaio’s evidence in a congressional hearing. Before he shouted me down, saying, “You don’t get to talk anymore!” and “You don’t get to read that!” (I tried to read aloud what he wrote), I got to talk about Obama’s forged birth certificate, his forged selective service application card, and his CT social security number starting with 042 instead of 575 or 576, numbers reserved for Hawai’i residents.
Coburn recited the talking points provided by CRS, the Congressional Research Service, who we identified as the culprit “prepping” members of Congress on how to handle questions about Obama’s birth certificate, citizenship status, his religion, Muslim background, passport, sealed records, etc. I asked if he gets his research from CRS, and he confirmed he did along with Snopes and FactCheck. Coburn had lost his cool and demanded I ask my question. I asked, “Will you call Sheriff Joe Arpaio and hear what he has to say?” Coburn answered, “Yes.”
Friends who travelled hours from different areas of Oklahoma to support me were witness to the ugly treatment usually given to me when I challenge high ranking officials. This time, it was murmurs of “Shut up, Bitch” and “Who does she think she is?”
Well, I’m happy to call myself a nobody. This nobody got a commitment from a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee to agree to call America’s toughest sheriff and hear the evidence proving Obama’s birth certificate is a manufactured forgery.
I was ecstatic to hear that Paul Ryan was chosen for Romney’s running mate. I was so afraid we were going to lose our country by allowing another Constitutionally ineligible candidate to be placed on a presidential ballot. The GOP establishment continually pushed for Marco Rubio to go on the ticket, deliberately ignoring the fact that Rubio is not a “natural born Citizen” as required by Article II, Section I, clause 5 of the Constitution. The founders in their great wisdom ensured for future generations that our president/commander in chief and vice-president have allegiance only to the United States by requiring this higher standard of natural born Citizen, meaning born to parents who are themselves citizens at the time. Marco Rubio was 4 years old when his father became a naturalized citizen, meaning he divested his Cuban citizenship, swore allegiance to America, and promised to uphold and defend the Constitution. Had Marco Rubio’s parents became naturalized before he was born, my mission would be different today.
I watched Ryan’s speech this morning and shed tears. Not just because of the wonderful words of optimism he has for the future of our country, but because it wasn’t Marco Rubio on the dais.
My thoughts, though, went to Ryan and Col. West and questioned why Tea Party-backed congressmen would vote for NDAA when it hit me: they don’t read all the bills, and we shouldn’t expect them to. It’s an impossible task, so they rely on their aides and other advisors to do the research and make recommendations. And how do they do their research? They rely on the information disseminated by CRS, Snopes, FactCheck, and other liberal sources. Dr. Coburn confirmed that.
This isn’t news, and most people reading this are aware of the problem, but the difference is that we are being heard and taken seriously. Wayne Allyn Root went mainstream over Obama’s sealed Columbia records. Others are coming forward exposing Obama’s communist ties and radical Muslim infiltration in the White House. My hunch is that every Republican senator and congressman has at least one communist plant among their staff, and CRS is the communist controller of the information flow – cut off the communist tentacles of CRS, and we start to win the information war and the battle to save our country.
There are odd parallels between the death of Andrew Breitbart and Obama staffer Alex Okrent. In both cases there were statements reported in the news almost immediately that they had died of heart attacks, even before autopsies were performed. In both cases they oddly collapsed then shortly thereafter died. In both cases their age did not portent a heart attack.
But where Andrew Breitbart was an open book—his life, words, and works literally strewn over the Internet—Alex Okrent’s life is a mystery. An extensive search of the Internet finds that there is literally nothing about him prior to July 13. This is odd given that the Obama campaign has stated he had been a staff member, a “communication employee,” for eight years. Eight years is a long time in politics. But aside from a single blog posting in February of 2008 where Okrent posts an Obama open letter to gays and lesbians regarding his stance on same-sex marriage, nothing shows him to be an Obama staff member or associated with the Obama campaign in any way.
Equally odd is his Twitter timeline. Going back to 2009, of his hundreds of tweets, nothing makes mention of his being a staff member of the Obama campaign, including his bio. Granted, he tweets out support for Obama’s stance on gay marriage; several times tweets that his followers should donate to Obama’s campaign, but there is no “Working on Obama’s campaign xyz today” kind of tweets.
We could probably somehow explain this away, but the literal wiping away of any information on the Internet about Alex Okrent (including a deleted Facebook page) cannot be disregarded. For anyone who has Google’d their own name knows, someone who merely exists in the world is all over the Internet. Their connection to the high school they went to; college; volunteer groups; blogs; what is tweeted; boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, acquaintances, Facebook posts, etc.
Oddly, the last tweet that Alex Okrent made was to a woman named Sarah Roberts. Roberts had tweeted out: “Trying to find a spot/bar to meet someone near Brown Line, Diversey stop: any recommendations?” Okrent had tweeted back: “Delilah’s is about a 5-6 minute walk from there, on Lincoln at Diversey. Grungy dive-y whiskey bar. one of the best.” Delilah’s is a popular Chicago bar frequented by gays and lesbians. But more pointedly, Sarah Roberts, not particularly famous, not associated with the President of the United States, has literally hundreds of photos, thousands of postings associated with her name, like one would expect that is connected with social media. In fact she has been blogging for the past four years and posts various photos of herself, her friends, etc., something we would have expected Alex Okrent to do. Where are the photos of Obama staffers having a drink after a hard day of work? Aside from the one photo of Okrent allegedly at Obama campaign headquarters on his Twitter bio, there are no photos. Okrent has been with the Obama campaign for eight years and no photos of Obama? No photos of campaign events? No photos of fellow Obama staff members?
Further, his family, mother Lynn Pollack and Mike Okrent live in Evanston, minutes away from the Chicago headquarters where Okrent worked, and there are no photos of family events. No tweets as, ‘My birthday today. Here’s a photo of me and my mom,’ etc.
Here’s another odd fact. Lynn Pollack, the mother, appears on the Internet more than her son. Not in a good way either. Pollack is extensively associated and has a leadership role in an organization named innocuously Jewish Voice for Peace. Despite its name, the group is virulently anti-Israel, believing the Jews are occupying the land of Israel; are guilty of “apartheid,” i.e., the normal Islamic extremist line that Jews are illegally living in Israel. That somehow having a four-thousand year connection to a land is irrelevant. That those who espouse the “apartheid” meme also often seek the Jews annihilation being ignored. Jewish Voice for Peace is part of the “social justice” umbrella of anti-Israel groups, such CODEPINK, that have touchy-feely names, but have extensive radical ties (in the days when radicals were outed as radicals, we’d call them front groups).
This oddity goes further, in that this group is comprised of many Jews. “Self-hating” as some have called it. In fact Alex Okrent’s sister, Abigail Okrent, finds herself on a website called the Jewish S.H.I.T. List (Self-Hating and/or Israel-Threatening). Of Abigail Okrent the website writes: ‘This Evanston, Illinois Jew is a member of Jeff Alpert’s pro-Arab Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.” Abigail Okrent is also found on Marxist watchdog Trevor Loudon’s website. Even odder, Alex Okrent is listed on this Jewish S.H.I.T. List website, but with no description. His mother is also on a petition entitled American Jews Oppose Israeli Policy in Gaza. In fact the person conducting Okrent’s funeral,Howard Friedland, has been identified as an Israel-hating Marxist.
Could this be the link of Obama’s anti-Israel, Marxist policies that Obama had to conveniently sweep away?
Given the ability of this President to cover up all of his radical connections, all of his past abominations, we may never know.
Conservatives joined in a collective sigh of relief last night when Scott Walker was declared the winner in the Wisconsin recall race. We knew, with the unions involved, that there would be massive voter fraud, which was borne out with the 119% voter turnout number.
We were especially worried when Eric Holder’s corrupt DOJ announced they would be “observing” the election, as if an entity that ignored the blatant voter intimidation case by the New Black Panther Party could be trusted.
Holder, with his one-man crusade to wipe out voter ID laws, is the living embodiment of voter fraud. This makes for a dangerous cocktail, joined with Obama’s massive voter fraud allegations during the 2008 Democratic Primary.
Thankfully, there was enough of a Walker majority to offset the voter fraud.
A Scott Walker win was viewed as a referendum on Barack Obama, as Obama stands for everything that Walker’s opponents stand for: mandatory, all-powerful unions with unsustainable salaries, pensions, and health care; a bloated, all-encompassing government controlling all aspects of the economy and private citizens’ lives; demonization of anyone who disagrees with them as “right-wing extremists” (Walker was painted as the “rock star” of the Tea Party); and never-ending “stimulus” and bailouts that push debt higher and higher.
Obama’s “progressivism” (i.e., Socialism, Marxism, and union thuggery) got put in a coffin last night, nailing the cover shut.
But make no bones about it; Big government progressives will not be buried without a fight. They will break that cover off; claim voter fraud; charge the Tea Party and all conservatives with even more extremism, racism, jingoism and every other “-ism” out there; and double down with further thuggery, voter fraud, and deception.
So, we must continue to fight.
We must fight until election day.
And after election day.
Obama came to power because conservatives slept. As Andrew Breitbart said at CPAC in February: “Barack Obama met a bunch of ‘silver ponytails’ back in the 1980s… who, equally radical, said ‘One day, we’re going to have the presidency.’ And the rest of us slept while they plotted, and they plotted, and they plotted.”
America: When Obama is voted out in November, we must never sleep again.
On May 25, BuzzFeed came out with the “bombshell” that Barack Obama took part in a DSA (Democratic Socialists of America)-sponsored event in 1996.
The copy under the headline reads:
“It’s a reminder that the President presented himself as much more progressive during his time in Chicago. In this little-seen advertisement that ran in the Hyde Park Herald in 1996, Obama was listed on a panel sponsored by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), University of Chicago Democrats, and University of Chicago DSA.”
Translation: Nothing to see here, move on.
Of course, conservatives reported on this four years ago, so that the bombshell was a little late in coming.
In fact, in August of 2008, Trevor Loudon, a researcher who specializes in pulling the curtain back from the Radical Left, wrote the following:
“Right-wing bloggers have discovered Chicago DSA’s 1996 endorsement of Obama for the Illinois State Senate and Obama’s participation that same year in a University of Chicago Young Democratic Socialists town hall meeting on ‘Economic Insecurity.’”
What BuzzFeed has “uncovered” is simply the newspaper advertisement for the DSA “Economic Insecurity” event.
I put “uncovered” in quotes because we have be very careful here.
David Maraniss, in his new Obama “exposé,” Barack Obama: The Story, revealed a startling amount of detail of Obama’s mysterious New York years. Maraniss specifically sheds light on the oddity that even though Obama has been walking this earth for fifty-plus years, no girlfriend has ever come forward to present any information and/or dirt about the former community organizer. In the Mariniss excerpt, we learn of two girlfriends during the New York period in excruciating detail, with Mariniss getting a hold of letters and journals from Obama’s past flames.
Aside from there being major problems with these supposed girlfriends and Maraniss’ complicity with the Obama camp (his biography was authorized by Obama) that I’ve detailed in other places, the question is never answered by Maraniss why: 1. The girlfriends never came forward before; and 2. Why they made the letters and journals available exclusively to him?
We have to keep in mind that Maraniss wrote a fawning biography of Obama in August of 2008 and joined the mainstream media when the wagons were circled after Obama’s possible Kenyan birth was broached at the same time.
But more to my point here, Maraniss in his biography excerpt oddly lists the names of four Pakistanis that Obama and his then-girlfriend Genevieve Cook were close to during the New York years, stating that Obama sought out Pakistani friends. But he does not expand on why he sought out Pakistani friends versus some other nationality. Neither does he offer any substantive details about these Pakistani friends’ backgrounds.
The four Pakistani friends were (Mohammed) Hasan Chandoo, Wahid Hamid, Sohale Siddiqi (wife of Hamid), and Beenu Mahmood.
Chandoo and Hamid played a part in Obama’s trip to Pakistan in 1981, which he did not reveal until April of 2008, mentioning it as an offhand comment. In between terms of Occidental College and Columbia University, Obama had traveled to Pakistan with Hamid, staying with Chandoo’s family in Karachi.
Of course, there is the problem that Pakistan was then under martial law and forbade Americans, Jews, and Christians from entering the country, and that Obama may have used an Indonesian passport to enter the country, identifying himself as a Muslim. It also appears that both Chandoo and Hamid retained their friendship with Obama up until at least 2008 (as both were listed as part of an Obama-for-2008 Asian Americans Leadership Council), and both contributed to Obama’s 2008 campaign. But that is not my point here.
My point is that the Left uses what Andrew Breitbart called the strategy of a “controlled explosion.” For example, when BuzzFeed got word that Breitbart.com was going to reveal the Obama-Derrick Bell video tapes, they released an edited version of the tape before Breitbart.com in order to minimize the importance of the connection. By the time Breitbart released the full tapes, CNN had begun going on the offensive to “prove” that Bell was really not radical (to the point where MSM lackey Soledad O’Brien was caught having a Wikipedia article on Bell whispered in her ear, trying to prove how moderate he was.) This of course resulted in what many saw as an O’Brien meltdown while interviewing Breitbart editor Joel Pollack and more than likely contributed to CNN’s recently-tanked ratings, revealing CNN (like MSNBC) to be nothing more than an Obama Administration cheerleader.
The point being is that Maraniss’ biography, due to be released in full in June, is nothing more than a preemptive strike being used by the Obama Administration in order to minimize in a rather large way some impending revelation. What exactly the revelation is, I have not ascertained. (It more than likely will include Obama’s relationship with Bill Ayers during the New York years, Obama’s girlfriend Genevieve Cook attending the same college as Ayers in 1983 and 1984, the two more than likely attending the same classes, and Obama living literally a five-minute walk from Ayers. What I have ascertained, however, is that Maraniss is in bed with the Obama Administration.
BuzzFeed, also being completely in the tank with Obama, is not revealing anything with the 1996 DSA connection, except that they know some future Obama revelation is imminent.
Having said all of this, I warn conservatives not to throw gasoline on BuzzFeed’s non-existent fire as some websites have done by reporting on BuzzFeed’s “revelation.”
We are in a war for this country. Obama and his Leftist friends that want to “transform” our country by turning it into a European democratic-socialist oligarchy like the EU countries have become, versus our Constitutional Republic.
In a war, we cannot and must not sleep. In a war, we must be vigilant and realize that there are, as oddly as it may sound about a media organization, double agents like BuzzFeed.
