Communist ‘recipe’ for U.S. revealed
By: Gina Loudon
Trevor Loudon used to get up at 2 a.m. each morning to bake dozens of loaves of bread.
But today, the former baker from Christchurch, New Zealand, is up early to catch communists at work, and the “secret recipes” he’s discovered have already shaken up American politics, exposing politicians, activists and former President Obama advisor Van Jones.
Loudon’s investigative work began after watching the rise of communism in his home country of New Zealand. Worried the same thing might happen in the U.S., he asked a former communist to explain how it happened.
That confidant, Loudon told WND, revealed the big secret of the Marxists is that they make small gains by infiltrating institutions that have political influence ¬– like churches, labor unions and universities – and spread their “yeast” from there. In time, the communists within rise up to infiltrate and control the much larger, mainstream political parties and institutions.

The “People’s Lawyer” is a Criminal
By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media
In a sympathetic profile just before his resignation, Politico said Eric Holder’s biggest legacy may be “his quiet dismantling of the War on Drugs…” How he could have “accomplished” this without legislative authority from Congress—which is supposed to make and pass laws—is never really explained. He was an Attorney General described by President Barack Obama as “the people’s lawyer.” Anybody familiar with Marxist jargon knew exactly what Obama meant.
At home and abroad, the Obama administration distributed weapons to America’s enemies. Holder’s area of expertise was facilitating weapons shipments to Mexican drug cartels, in a scandal that came to be known as “Fast & Furious.”
John Fund, co-author of the book, Obama’s Enforcer, about the Holder record, told me the other day that “No cover-up is perfect,” and that it appears a batch of incriminating documents in the scandal will soon be released, thanks to legal action from Judicial Watch.
Equally scandalous, the Obama/Holder administration made an announcement that it wouldn’t enforce money-laundering laws against banks doing business with marijuana stores.
But Politico insisted that Holder’s criminal approach to the enforcement of drug laws was something in his favor, because the “Reagan-era crusade” against drugs that he opposed at every turn “hasn’t eradicated drug use…”
Have laws against murder eradicated murder? Have laws against shoplifting eradicated shoplifting?
The Reagan approach was mostly carried through subsequent administrations, to the point where David Evans, a special advisor to the Drug Free America Foundation, notes that marijuana use went down among young people by 25 percent. “If we had had a reduction in any other health problem in the U.S. of 25 percent, we would consider it an outstanding success,” he said. But marijuana use has been going up under the Obama administration. This is not an accident.
Politico goes on, saying those Reagan policies “filled U.S. prisons past the breaking point and wrecked the lives of millions of Americans, a disproportionate number of them African-American.” So Reagan is blamed for blacks using drugs and going to prison.
Ethan Nadelmann followed up with a Politico column entitled, “Eric Holder Was Great on Drugs.” The title has a double meaning, which was apparently lost on the editors who came up with that clever use of words. Nadelmann, of course, is the head of the Drug Policy Alliance, the group funded by billionaire hedge fund operator George Soros as a means of undermining laws against the use of dangerous drugs. Politico is part of that effort.
Politico writes that, “Sensing a consensus shifting in his favor, Holder has unveiled a raft of sensible proposals to roll back overly harsh sentencing laws that would have been radioactive only years earlier but won him applause on the left and right. And instead of fighting states like Colorado and Washington when they liberalized their drug laws, as another AG might have done, he has effectively declared a cease-fire.”
There is a lot of bias packed into these two sentences. The use of the terms “sensible” and “overly harsh” tip the scales against enforcing drug laws. Plus, legal dope has become just “liberalized drug laws.” There was never any applause “on the right,” except among libertarians who promote and use drugs.
It must be noted that Colorado and Washington violated national, and even international, drug control laws, also known as treaties. That didn’t bother Holder.
Despite what Politico says, real conservatives oppose the Soros-funded drive to legalize drugs. At the recent Values Voter Summit, Rep. John Fleming (R-LA), a medical doctor, exploded many of the pro-drug myths offered by Obama and Holder and their allies at Politico. He took issue with his “libertarian friends.” The Focus on the Family magazine “Citizen” has an excellent September cover story, “Growing Like a Weed,” on the damage being done.
Fleming mentioned two cases out of Colorado—one in which a husband stoned on marijuana shot and killed his wife, and another involving a student who jumped to his death after getting high.
Fleming didn’t mention it, but an Alaska television reporter just announced on the air that she ran a marijuana club that she had been reporting on. She used an obscenity on the air and walked off the set. This was a vivid example of the dangers from the marijuana industry and the media that promote it.
This former reporter, Charlo Greene, has now appeared on a television show sponsored by The Huffington Post, where she lit up a marijuana cigarette on the air.
Greene is a poster girl not only for the marijuana culture but for modern journalism. She admits she violated commonly accepted notions of journalistic ethics because she wanted to keep her job. “I have a journalism degree,” she said. “I know in journalism there’s a line that you’re not supposed to cross, and the minute that I bought my business license [for the marijuana club] on 4/20 of this year, I shouldn’t have reported on any marijuana stories. But if I had gone to my boss and said, ‘Hey, I just bought this company,’ I would have been fired, period. I wasn’t ready for that to happen.”
In other words, she lied and deceived her viewers, just so she could hang on to her job for a while. This is an argument for drug tests.
Greene said she lied for the benefit of “my people” in Alaska, who deserve access to dope.
The Huffington Post TV interviewer, the Russian-born former Russia Today (RT) host Alyona Minkovski, was amused by the whole interview, including the spectacle of Greene smoking dope on the air.
In an obvious understatement, Greene said, “I am not the only journalist that smokes weed.”
“I certainly am a supporter of legalization of marijuana,” Minkovski quickly added. We’re sure she is.
As the Joel Gilbert film, “There’s No Place Like Utopia” shows, the game plan behind marijuana legalization has been to create another “progressive” constituency in need of something government can provide—in this case dope to “cure” problems like high arches.
It is a terrible scam that results in many wrecked lives. Holder has helped make it possible.
Qatar Awareness Campaign – Introductory Letter
QATAR AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
To the American Public:
In light of the wars and violent turbulence that currently engulf the Middle East and parts of Africa, a coalition of concerned citizens, journalists, and activists are launching a campaign to expose a most infamous and pernicious sponsor of Islamic terror: the Gulf state of Qatar.
Qatar, (pronounced “cutter,” or “gutter”), is, per capita, the richest country in the world ($93,352 in 2013). This is partly due to the fact that they control the third largest natural gas reserves in the world, the North Dome field in the Persian Gulf. It is also because Qatar has a mere 278,000 citizens, with a total population of 2.05 million; the remaining people in Qatar are a mix of well-paid ex-pats from countries such as the United States and Great Britain, and a substantial slave labor population.
A backer of international terror from Nigeria to Gaza to Syria and Iraq, the Qatari ruling family, the al-Thanis, exploit Islamic jihadi groups and their ties to illicit smuggling.
What is being smuggled? Mostly narcotics and people – slaves.
Unfortunately, the United States is integrated into the Qatari “economy” as much as any other developed nation. Doha, Qatar’s capital, is home to two of the largest American military bases in the entire world, as well as familiar companies like ExxonMobil, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin. Doha also hosts a number of campuses for prestigious American universities, such as Georgetown, Carnegie Mellon, and Cornell. Other companies and organizations, ranging from the film production company Miramax to financial behemoths like Bank of America, have accepted significant amounts of investment by the al-Thanis.
Hamas, a Qatari client, launched a war against Israel this summer. There is an ongoing genocide across Iraq and Syria, with mass graves and grisly beheadings of Christians and Shiite Muslims. Boko Haram continues to rampage across Nigeria, threatening the political stability of Africa’s largest economy and population. Qatari fingerprints are on each of crises.
Over the course of the next month, companies, organizations, and individuals with significant investments and activities with and in Qatar will be identified and contacted with the reality of their host country. These letters, once published, will be sent to press outlets around the world.
We call on the parties identified in this campaign to review the evidence, which is all credibly sourced and vetted. In light of the terror, slavery, genocide, and narcotics trafficking, we urge the parties to demand that Qatar immediately cease any and all involvement in these activities.

Forum: Why Did Eric Holder Resign And What’s Next?
The Watcher’s Council
Every week on Monday morning, the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum with short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture or daily living. This week’s question: Why Did Eric Holder Resign And What’s Next?
The Noisy Room: I believe there are a number of possibilities as to why and when Holder stepped down:
1. The first thing I heard was that Holder was stepping down because of Fast and Furious. Though he is leaving the scene of the crime, he is still under Congressional investigation. A judge has denied a delay requested by the DOJ concerning the document list connected to the case. The documents had previously been withheld under Obama’s claim to executive privilege:
The list, better known as a Vaughn index, was requested through a June 2012 FOIA filing by government watchdog Judicial Watch. When DOJ didn’t respond to the FOIA request in the time required by law, Judicial Watch sued in September 2012, seeking all documents DOJ and the White House are withholding from Congress under executive privilege claims. President Obama made the assertion on June 20, 2012 just moments before Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt. In July 2014, after two years of battling for information, Judge Bates ordered the Department of Justice to release the Vaughn Index by October 1. DOJ responded by asking for a month long delay in releasing the list with a deadline of November 3, just one day before the 2014-midterm elections. That request has been denied. A short delay was granted and DOJ must produce the Vaughn index by October 22.
“The government’s arguments for even more time are unconvincing,” Bates said in his ruling. “[S]eventy-five days—plus another twenty-one, based in part on Judicial Watch’s consent—is enough time for the government to prepare the index that this Court has ordered, given that this matter has been pending for over two years. The Court will therefore extend the Department’s Vaughn index submission deadline to October 22, 2014—and no further.”;
“The government argues that it must devote significant numbers of attorneys to this matter if it hopes to comply with the current Vaughn index deadline … But the Department has known about its Vaughn index obligations since July 18, 2014 … At best, it means the Department has been slow to react to this Court’s previous Order. At worst, it means the Department has ignored that Order until now,” he added.
The House Oversight Committee is also suing for the release of the Vaughn index and earlier this month U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered DOJ to produce requested information to lawmakers by November 1.
This scandal and Holder’s flat out refusal to cooperate, landed him a Contempt of Congress charge, which he is still subject to. Most legal experts, though, believe he will walk. Sigh. However, that being said, Judicial Watch believes they are very close to nailing Holder’s hide to a wall.
2. Holder may be stepping down so that Obama can appoint a new Attorney General before the 2014 elections take place, which could go badly for the Democrats. However, this is subject to confirmation and there probably is not time for that.
There are those that would fight against this a la Harry Reid and the Nuclear Option move; Ted Cruz is chief among them. He called for Holder’s impeachment and now he intends to make sure Conservatives have a say in the next Attorney General of the United States. And Cruz has a plan:
Cruz, who has previously made the case for impeaching Holder in an attempt to have a special prosecutor investigate the IRS, doesn’t want a confirmation battle to take place during the lame-duck session.
“To ensure that justice is served and that the attorney general is not simply replaced with another extreme partisan who will likewise disregard the law, the Senate should wait until the new Congress is sworn in before confirming the next attorney general,” Cruz said in a Thursday afternoon statement. “Allowing Democratic senators, many of whom will likely have just been defeated at the polls, to confirm Holder’s successor would be an abuse of power that should not be countenanced.”;
Republican senators have the ability to slow down the process.
“With Republican opposition, any nominee could take as long as three weeks before even clearing the Senate Judiciary Committee, because of rules that guarantee them, as the minority party, a chance to delay the vote,” the Los Angeles Times explains. “Following that, the Senate floor debate could take a week to clear all the procedural hurdles at the Republican minority’s disposal to stall the vote.”;
Get em, Ted! He seems to be one of the very few in our halls of power with the stones to take on the bad guys. Why, his actions are almost Presidential!
3. Holder could be angling for a seat on the Supreme Court. Obama was tearful when making the announcement. Horsepuckey… Holder isn’t going anywhere… he’s shifting. And one possible shift is just too horrific to contemplate. Rush Limbaugh floated the possibility that Holder is stepping down so he can be nominated for the Supreme Court. Words fail me and the cringe thingie is getting worse. By all that is Holy, please let Rush be wrong this one time. Please.
I predict that whatever is next, it will not be good.
The Independent Sentinel: I think Eric Holder stepped down because he has something better in the offing. Let’s hope it’s not Supreme Court Justice. It will also allow the White House to shut down the scandal investigations even further.
The possible picks for his replacement aren’t any better.
JoshuaPundit: Well, a couple of things.
First off, it’s obvious to me that this was planned far in advance. Holder and this president have already shown their contempt for congress and the law numerous times, anything incriminating has likely already been cleaned up ala’ IRS-gate with its the mysterious missing hard drives, serial obstruction of justice and computer failures and the time factor is on Holder and the attorney general’s side. – even if the GOP take the Senate and in the unlikely event John Boehner finds out where his testicles are hidden, it’s probably far too late in the game for a special prosecutor to be appointed, hearings to conclude or a trial on articles of impeachment in the senate before the 2016 election and President Barack Hussein Obama’s exit in January of 2017. And because of Obama’s race, there’s no will to do so, which is racism en extremis, but that’s the reality.We are indeed cowards when it comes to race.
The lame duck congress reconvenes November 12th, and there are very few legislative business left after that before the holiday break. By resigning now, Holder gives the president a chance to shove the new nominee through with as little time for vetting as possible because Reid will pull the nuclear option again.
If I had to lay odds on who the new AG nominee will be, I’d say Labor Secretary Thomas Perez, the former Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the United States DOJ.He’s a creature of George Soros, has a history of advocating for amnesty for illegal aliens,and knows the DOJ intimately including where all the bodies are buried. He’s also a Leftist Radical skilled at racial politics, and he’s Latino, a demographic where the president has been lagging in the polls lately. U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, famed for his anti-Wall Street activities would also be a logical choice politically, fitting in with Obama’s fake ‘warrior for the middle class’ rhetoric.
The Supreme Court? The closest member to ‘retirement’ is Ruth Bader Ginsberg, whom regardless of what you think of her politics is waging a courageous battle against pancreatic cancer. Her life is the Supreme Court, her fellow justices are all close friends (particularly Justice Scalia)and she has voiced criticism of this president’s extra-constitutional attitudes before. She has said numerous times that she’s not resigning and likely intends to stay until she’s carried out. While Majority Leader Harry Reid would not hesitate for a second to break the rules on the nuclear option which allow the filibuster on SCOTUS nominees, I’d be very surprised if the votes for the sort of radical Barack Obama would nominate will be there after January 2015.
GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD: AG Holder will no doubt enjoy and enrich via a brilliant career in the race industry and who can say? Perhaps he’ll finally have an overtly robust discussion with several cowards.
The next AG may actually be a very familiar face – former Homeland Security’s Big Sis – Janet Napolitano.
Hilarity shall NOT ensue.
Bookworm Room: I don’t actually have any opinions of my own on this one, so I’ll recycle two opinions that I’ve read. I’ve read that Holder stepped down because the Fast & Furious investigation was getting too close and he needed to spare the Obama administration embarrassment. Other investigations grinding there way through the House are also too hot if he’s still in the Justice Department. What’s next is an expensive lobbyist job and an eventual furiously hyped, tell-nothing book tour.
I’ve also read that Obama is trying to get Ruth Bader Ginsberg off the Supreme Court and Eric Holder on. Since Obama has some reason to believe that Republicans will gain enough seats to take control of the Senate, he can only replace Ginsberg with Holder by acting before January 2015. Ginsberg’s apparently fighting her removal, but I suspect, if this theory has any weight, that she’ll be made to obey. The fact that Eric Holder has enough baggage to fill a 747 will be irrelevant. Reid’s Senate will do away with the filibuster for Supreme Court nominations and vote him in.
Holder will then become the most corrupt, partisan, administration foot soldier ever to sit on the Supreme Court. Ordinary Americans, even some Democrats, will be disgusted by the process and the Supreme Court will be yet another branch of the government that becomes corrupt and declines, both in fact and in perception, on the Obama watch.
The Right Planet: I can only speculate as to why Eric Holder decided to step down now. But I do find it interesting a federal judge recently ordered the DoJ to provide Congress with documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal. On the other hand, six years is a fairly long stint as head of the Justice Department. So, who knows.
Holder said at the White House, “I think I go out having accomplished a great deal in the areas that are of importance to me. I’m satisfied with the work we have done.”
Huh. It’s “nice” to know Holder has been working on things that are important to him during his time at the Department of Justice.
Attorney General Eric Holder has provided a firewall for Barack Obama, deflecting any serious congressional inquiries into alleged wrongdoing by the administration. Holder has also been eager to implement Obama’s version of “social justice” at the Justice Department as well. The question now becomes, who will replace Holder? Will it be worse? There’s a lot of names going around as possible replacements–Janet Napolitano, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, the prosecutor who prosecuted Dinesh D’Souza, California Attorney General Kamala Harris, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, among others.
Well there you have it!
