Actor Vince Vaughn Comes Out As Proud Conservative!!!

Not exactly A list, but trust me I feel it in my bones this is good. There is a lack of fear in Hollywood now and you watch as more and more stars will come our way.

Remember that we also vote with our dollars. If a Hollywood Puke wants to open his yap and spew the regimes propaganda we can and must choke them off at the box office.

This is the beginning of the end, Do not let up. I know people are discouraged, but they are on the ropes. Take a breath, say a prayer and double down your efforts. The light has been shown on these COCKROACHES.  

—————————————————————————————–

Ask actor Vince Vaughn about his political views and he’ll proudly tell you he’s conservative – and he doesn’t really care what Hollywood thinks.

The Lib's Are going bug eyed.

The Lib’s Are going bug eyed.

In a telephone interview with Adam Carola, Hollywood A-lister Vince Vaughn made a strong declaration about his conservative principles. When Carolla asked him very directly, “Do you count yourself a conservative?” Vaughn did not hesitate or stammer, he merely replied, “I do, yeah…I mean I’m very supportive of Ron Paul, but I’ve always been more conservative than not.”

During the three minute interview Carolla tried to see if Vaughn’s conservatism was a product of a conservative upbringing. Vaughn talked about growing up in Chicago, with a father who came from a working class family that leaned more democratic.

However, the actor also stated, “As a guy that worked very hard, and sort of put himself through school and stuff, he was more conservative, for sure.”

Carolla claimed that he was not conservative, but he “has been made conservative by the direction the country’s been going.”

( Carolla Too)

When Vaughn was asked if his conservatism runs along the lines of fiscal issues, social issues or both, he mentioned Ron Paul, the Constitution, and a lack of trust in government.

“I really like Ron Paul…I think that when you get older, you just get less trust in the government running anything. And you start to realize…when you go back and start to look at the Constitution and the principles of liberty, the real purpose of government is to protect the individual’s right to, you know, sort of think and pursue what they have interest in,” Vaughn replied.

The “Wedding Crashers” star also addressed the Hollywood bias against conservatives in the industry, but also maintained, “I can disagree with people but not have it be the forefront of all conversations.”

Vaughn has also teamed up with TheBlaze TV to put out “Pursuit of the Truth,” a reality show searching for the next great documentary filmmaker. Vaughn’s Wild West Productions partnered with Go Go Luckey Entertainment and Glenn Beck’s media company to make the show a reality. You can watch past episodes of “Pursuit of the Truth,” here.

Pres. Lucifer has America in a Satanic grip

Rev./Dr. James David Manning, the pastor of ATLAH World Missionary in Harlem, NY city, has been fighting the good fight, speaking truth to power, fearlessly and outspokenly.

But I’ve never seen him as despairing as he is today.

Pres. Lucifer

We The People Have Been Sold Out

By Dr. James David Manning

The cover-up of Obama’s CIA service, terrorist activity ties to Bill Ayers, criminal ties to Tony Resko, hate whitey and America ties to Jeremiah Wright, homosexual activity, connection to the death of Donald Young and his wholly ineligible status has been a combined effort of both democrats and republicans, liberals and conservatives, the media, the courts and the Congress.

When the DNC took the nomination from the Clinton’s and gave it to Obama, it was empirical evidence that Obama held powers that were larger than the American government.

When Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck finally put the birth certificate question to rest by declaring that O’Reilly had seen the original; they further stated that the Birthers were crazy racists. It was clear Obama and his power brokers controlled all media, both liberal, and conservative. When the stories about Bristol Palin and her boyfriend Levi suddenly disappeared from the news cycles, I knew he had silenced Sarah Palin and The Tea Parties nationwide.

Whatever Obama is, be he Muslim, Communist, Homosexual, Ineligible, or a Brooks Brothers suit wear terrorist, so goes America, it is clear no elected official, no sitting justice, and no media will lay a finger on him. Then why do we think he will ever relinquish power?

He has put the NDAA* in place. He has perfected and gotten approval for the use of drones both nationally and internationally. Homeland security has purchased 1.6 billion hollow point bullets, and he is prepared to hand out 500k assault weapons to black youth from the ghettos and prisons of America in Taliban and Al Queda fashion to defend him and his legacy.

Obama will never release his records, nor will he release America. Our government (Liberals and Conservatives) has conspired a deal that Obama does not have to release his records nor will he have to release America from his Satanic grip.

* NDAA is the National Defense Authorization Act that “authorizes” the U.S. president and the military to arrest and indefinitely detain U.S. citizens, without charge or trial. NDAA was passed by both parties in both houses of Congress in 2011.

Do you agree with Rev. Manning? If you do, what recourse should we take? Do you think Rev. Manning has given up the fight?

Boston bombings’ mysterious “Saudi national” visited Obama White House?

Remember that “Saudi national” whom the media called “a suspect” right after the two bombs went off at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013?

The media at the time said that police had detained and questioned this “suspect.” Quickly after, the media switched to calling him a mere “person of interest” and told us that he had been taken to a hospital to treat his shrapnel wounds and severe burn. After that, the media dropped any reference to the “Saudi national” entirely, seemingly having lost all interest in him.

In an April 20 post, “What about that other Boston bombings suspect, the Saudi national?,” I tried to follow up on the mysterious “Saudi national” — that his name is said to be Abdul Rahman Al-harbi (or variants thereof); that he was admitted into the United States on a student visa even though he shouldn’t have been allowed into our country; that he seems to have powerful connections in Saudi Arabia; that FLPOS Michelle had visited him in the Boston hospital; and that the federal government first had said he would be deported (on April 23) as a threat to U.S. national security, then DHS chief Janet Napolitano denied it.

Much of this was repeated by Glenn Beck in his supposedly earth-shattering exposé of Al-harbi. (See “What Beck revealed about Boston bombings’ mysterious Saudi national,” April 22, 2013.).

Thanks to Jim Holt of Gateway Pundit, April 24, 2013, we now have pictures of FLPOS visiting Al-harbi at the hospital, which were posted on Alharbi’s Facebook page!

Holt also alerts us to the evidence below of Alharbi, who is on a terrorist watchlist, having visited the White House several times since 2009.

Here are the dates:

Of course, the White House will say it was another “Abdul Rahman Al-Harbi.”

What Beck revealed about Boston bombings’ mysterious Saudi national

This is a follow-up on my post of April 20, 2013, “What about that other Boston bombings suspect, the Saudi national?

Immediately after the two bombs detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon a week ago on April 15, 2013, the media identified a “Saudi national” as a “suspect” and told us that he was detained and questioned by law enforcement, then taken to a hospital to be treated for shrapnel wounds and severe burn. Quickly, the media changed its story and stopped calling the Saudi a “suspect” but a “person of interest” instead. Then, the media seemed to have lost all interest in the “Saudi national.”

Alharbi“Saudi national” Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi in a Boston hospital

So the Alternate Media stepped in to pick up this story. We are told that:

  • The name of the “Saudi national” is Abdulrahman Al-harbi or  variations thereof.
  • A day after the bombings, Obama had an unscheduled meeting with the Saudi foreign minister.
  • The “Saudi national” reportedly was paid a visit by none other than FLPOS Michelle.
  • Then we learn that the “Saudi national” would be deported under section 212 3B as a “national security threat,” only to have the story change again by DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to Alharbi not being deported.
  • A congressional source said that a file on Alharbi had been created, that he was “linked” in some way to the Boston bombings (though it is unclear how), and that documents showing all this have been sent to Congress.
  • On Sunday, TheBlaze reported that the House Committee on Homeland Security is officially requesting more information about Alharbi.
  • According to Fox News reporter Todd Starnes, a source purportedly familiar with the investigation said Alharbi had been flagged on a terror watch list, and improperly granted a student visa although he was deemed inadmissible under the section of the Immigration and Nationality Act which declares ineligible for a visa, any foreign national who is or is likely to engage in terrorist activity.

Last Thursday, Glenn Beck issued an ultimatum to the Obama regime. If the White House doesn’t come clean on the “Saudi national” by Monday (today, April 22), Beck would reveal what he knows about the man. The following is what Beck revealed today in his radio program, taken from an account published in Beck’s TheBlaze:

  • While the media continues to look at the two Tsarnaev brothers, there were three people “involved” in the Boston Marathon bombings and the first of the three is the Saudi national.
  • That the Saudi national was tagged as a “212 3B” (to be deported on grounds of national security) is significant because that is the equivalent in civil society of charging someone with premeditated murder and seeking the death penalty.
  • But Alharbi’s file was changed last Wednesday at 5:35 p.m., which is unheard of due to the severity of “212 3B.” Only someone at the very highest levels of the State Department could make that alteration so quickly.
  • Alharbi has been in the United States for six months. His student visa specifically allows him to go to school in Findley, Ohio, but he has an apartment in Boston, Massachusetts. 
  • Why wasn’t the Congressional Committee on Homeland Security notified? Why are they being cut out of all information? This is protocol.
  • Sources tell Beck this will most likely now be kicked from the DHS to the DOJ and labeled an ongoing investigation that can no longer be discussed. This will be the reason Napalitano won’t answer the Homeland Security Committee’s request for a briefing. Like Benghazi, the Obama administration are engaged in a disinformation campaign floating a variety of scenarios to confuse the media to prevent the story from being pursued. They are also working very hard to discredit those on the scent.
  • The questionable relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States goes back further than the current administration. Multiple news outlets reported after 9/11 that prominent Saudis were allowed to leave the country, even as all flights were grounded. The Bush administration would later block the investigation into Saudi involvement into 9/11, even though 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis, and would eventually force the redaction of a 28-page chapter of the 9/11 Commission report regarding foreign, specifically Saudi, support for some of the Al-Qaeda hijackers.
  • But the Obama administration has taken that relationship to a whole new level. On January 14, 2013, Obama met with Saudi Minister of Interior. Two days later Janet Napolitano signed agreement with Saudi minister allowing “trusted traveler” status on Saudi student visitors, meaning greatly reduced security checks and scrutiny.
  • Beck: “This is trusted traveler status that we don’t give to some of our most trusted allies, and we gave it to Saudi Arabia last January? So they can just walk into our country no questions asked? There is a pattern. There is a relationship between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia the American public doesn’t know about. The case of Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi is only the latest example.”
  • Beck concluded by calling on the American people to “call your congressmen right now. There are congressmen who are aware of this, have seen the documentation — they need your support, they need your help…If we do not stand up, [Alharbi] is on a plane tomorrow or he is already gone.”

Update: Doug Giles of Clash Daily says over 10 names from Alharbi’s clan are members of Al-Qaeda.

What about that other Boston bombings suspect, the Saudi national?

Now that Suspect #2, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was captured last night in Watertown, after his older brother Suspect #1 Tamerlan earlier had been killed in a shootout with police, the Marxist State Media are behaving as if the Boston Marathon terrorism is over.

But there is a third individual — the “Saudi national” whom the media first called a “suspect” immediately after the bombings on Monday, April 15, 2013. We were told that he was detained and questioned by police, taken to a Boston hospital to treat “shrapnel” wounds and “severe burns,” and his apartment was searched. Then we were told his status was revised from being a “suspect” to being a “person of interest”.

Then Reuters reported that on Tuesday, April 16, Obama had met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House ostensibly to discuss the conflict in Syria. The meeting was not on the POS’s public schedule.

Next, news came via Breitbart.com’s Kerry Picket that on Wednesday, April 17, terrorism expert Steven Emerson of the Investigative Project revealed on Sean Hannity’s cable show that an official at ICE had told him (Emerson) the mysterious Saudi national is Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, and he is set to be deported. Emerson said, “It was determined that he had no involvement [...] Well, I just learned from my own sources he’s now going to be deported on national security grounds Tuesday. This is the way things are done with Saudi Arabia. You don’t arrest their citizens. You deport them, because they don’t want them to be embarrassed.”

Act for America identified the Facebook page of Abdulrahman Al-harbi. Here’s Alharbi’s profile pic:

On Thursday, April 18, Walid Shoebat (a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood who’s now a “peace activist”) posted this photo (from Okaz, a very prominent Saudi newspaper) of Alharbi during his stay in a Boston hospital:

Alharbi_Hospital

Shoebat followed that with another photo of Alharbi at the hospital, smiling while standing next to what appears to be a Saudi diplomat:

Alharbi_Diplomat_Hospital

On Thursday, April 18, Glenn Beck revealed on radio that TheBlaze was informed by sources that the Saudi national’s visa had been revoked and he was, in fact, going to be deported on “security and related grounds.” The sources also said the Saudi national had ties to a well-connected Saudi family and that his deportation was set to be framed as a “voluntary” departure to be with his family.

While discussing the issue on radio, TheBlaze’s Chief Content Officer Joel Cheatwood revealed that the government has had second thoughts on deporting Ali Alharbi. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refused to answer questions on the subject when confronted on this by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) on Capitol Hill. An ICE official outright refuted TheBlaze’s report, calling it “categorically false.”

A congressional source told TheBlazethat a file, called an “event,” had been created on “Abdul Rahman Ali Al Harby” at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16, by an official with the National Targeting Center, a counterterrorism sub-agency of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Department of Homeland Security. The file stated that Ali Al Harby is “linked to the Boston bombing” and was to be processed for revocation of his visa based on national security grounds. Documents showing all this have been sent to Congress.

Yesterday, Friday April 19Bob Unruh of WND writes that the Saudi Arabian newspaper Okaz is reporting that FLPOS Michelle Obama had visited Alharbi in the hospital.

The newspaper accompanied its report with an image of FLPOS (below), although the background was generic and it couldn’t be confirmed immediately that she was at the hospital where Alharbi was being treated at the time. (Update: It’s confirmed. Go to “Boston bombings’ mysterious “Saudi national” visited Obama White House?” for pictures of Michelle visiting Alharbi at the hospital.)

Michelle at hospitalWalid Shoebat says the newspaper Okaz also stated that Michelle had visited another injured Saudi at the hospital, a female doctor named Nura Khalid Saleh al-Ajaji. Shoebat said tweets from members of the Alharbi family give “credibility” to the report.

Glenn Beck has thrown down the gauntlet to the Obama regime, declaring that:

“we know he [the Saudi national] is a very bad, bad, bad man. I know that doesn’t make any sense to you right now. But on Monday [April 22] it will. It makes sense to somebody in Washington. I don’t bluff. I make promises. The truth matters. I’ve had enough of what you’ve done to our country. I thought I had heard and seen it all. I thought I didn’t trust my government. Oh no, no, no, no. There is no depth that these people will not stoop to. They have until Monday and then TheBlaze will expose it.”

And let’s not forget this:

Author Jack Cashill speaks up for Sandy Hook skeptics

Beware of the label “Conspiracy Theory.”

Although the definition of “conspiracyis simply “an agreement between two or more persons to commit an unlawful act,” the terms “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorists” are equated with “crazy.”

As such, the label is an oft-used weapon to dismiss and discredit anyone who refuses to parrot the party line and instead has the audacity to ask questions about some handed-down “truth”. As if there aren’t real conspiracies: Kennedy’s Operations Northwood Conspiracy, Nixon’s Watergate Conspiracy, Reagan’s Iran-Contra Conspiracy, Obama’s Fast & Furious Conspiracy, and, of course, there’s the criminal Conspiracy called the Mafia.

So much for the much-priced “critical thinking” that’s in the standard publicity literature of U.S. colleges and universities to promote a liberal arts education.

The latest effort to brand skeptics as crazy is over Sandy Hook — the massacre of 26, including 20 first-grade children, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012.

The official version of the massacre should be questioned if for no reasons than that:

  1. There are inconsistencies and anomalies in the official narrative, about which there are no answers because –
  2. A judge had put a gag on what police can tell us about the massacre.  On Dec. 27, 2012, State Superior Court Judge John Blawie ruled that search warrant affidavits for the cars and home of alleged lone shooter Adam Lanza and his mother would stay sealed beyond the normal 14-day period, for another 90 days, that is, until late March 2013.
  3. The massacre has serious policy consequences because it is used by the Obama regime to justify infringements on our Constitutional Second Amendment right to “bear arms.” As an example, Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif) cited the “20 dead children in Newtown” as “a wakeup call” to America when she formally introduced the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 — her bill to ban “assault weapons,” including rifles, shotguns, and handguns  (See “List of banned guns in Feinstein’s “assault weapons” bill,” Jan. 24, 2013.)

We expect the Left to dismiss Sandy Hook skeptics, but we didn’t expect pundits on “our side” to do so.

A writer for Glenn Beck’s site, The Blaze, did a hit piece on January 23, “This is The Blaze’s Point-by-Point Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theory Debunk.” Beck himself not only dismissed the skeptics, he went a mile further by making fun of us — just as he had mocked “birthers” as stupid. Mockery is a standard tool used to suppress questions and critical thinking.

A commenter on FOTM said that conservative radio talker and Fox TV personality Sean Hannity also dismisses Sandy Hook skeptics. Hannity evidently did not learn a lesson from having lost about half of his TV audience after last November 6′s election. The leftwing Salon attributes the loss to his viewers being disillusioned because Hannity had predicted a Romney win. Salon, of course, is wrong because if that’s the reason, then other conservative talkers should also have lost their audience. No, Salon, viewers and listeners are leaving Hannity in droves because after the Romney loss, Hannity said the GOP should try to be “more appealing” to women and Hispanics, in effect, by becoming a Democrat Party 2.0. When I heard that on his radio show, that was the last time I listened to Sean Hannity.

Here’s author Dr. Jack Cashill’s rejoinder to those who seek to stifle inquiries into the Sandy Hook massacre.

Debunking the Sandy Hook Debunkers

By Jack Cashill- American Thinker – Jan. 21, 2013

During the age of Obama, the major media have gone fully AWOL. If they fear that their reporting will lead to inconvenient discoveries, they simply stop their advance, lay down their notebooks, and disappear. This trend began in the Clinton years and picked up momentum after the 1994 electoral debacle, but the Clintons at least worried that the media might turn on them.

If Barack Obama ever had any such anxiety, the nonreporting on Fast and Furious, Benghazi and now Sandy Hook has had to reassure him. Sandy Hook is particularly disturbing because the truth is, or at least should have been, so accessible. This tragedy should never have spawned anything like a conspiracy theory, but it obviously has.

Protecting the major media’s flank during retreat are many and sundry well-funded leftist blogs — Huffington Post, The Daily Kos, Media Matters, and TPM among others. While the major media withdraw, the blogs attack those who might challenge the “narrative” the majors have left behind.

A case in point is a recent multi-media Huffington Post piece titled “Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theory Video Debunked By Experts.” In the video intro, HuffPo editor Meredith Bennett-Smith laughingly dismisses the various alternate theories of what transpired at Sandy Hook. Says Bennett-Smith, “That is what conspiracy theorists love to do. They put out a lot of questions, but they don’t necessarily provide a lot of answers.” When there is a Democrat in the White House, alas, anyone who asks a question becomes a conspiracy theorist.

Like too many alleged fact checkers, Bennett-Smith addresses only the least significant of the challenges to the Sandy Hook narrative: the alleged use of crisis actors, the memorials that predated the shooting, the confusion about what weapon was in Adam Lanza’s trunk. The “experts” she promises in the headline turn out to be other Obama-friendly fact checkers like David Mikkelson, founder of Snopes, and Robert Blaskiewicz, editor of a comparable blog called Skeptical Humanities. Absent in the piece is anyone who knows anything about guns or police work.

Predictably, what the HuffPo piece does not address are the two most troubling inconsistencies in the Sandy Hook reporting: the nature of the guns used and the presence or absence of a second shooter. Both questions have gained importance because of the White House’s obvious political exploitation of a ginned up “assault weapon” hysteria.

As to the guns, on December 15, one day after the shooting, NBC’s chief justice correspondent Pete Williams spoke with Today Show host Matt Lauer. Williams shared “new information” from a “couple of federal officials and state officials.” Said Williams, “They say now that there were actually four handguns recovered inside the school, not just two as we were initially told; four handguns and apparently only handguns that were taken into the school.” (Italics mine)

Williams said that Lanza also brought an “assault style, AR-15 style rifle” with him to school, but, he added, “We have been told by several officials that he left that in the car.” In the days that followed, the story would shift to the AR-15, not as the exclusive weapon — two handguns remained in the story — but as “the primary weapon used in the attack.” On December 19, CNN reported, “Police say Lanza’s rifle used numerous 30-round magazines.” By January 6, the Hartford Courant was reporting that Lanza used the handguns only to shoot himself.

This shift in reporting may be justified, and Williams’ sources may have been wrong, but why has no one at NBC addressed the discrepancy? The police had plenty of time to establish the nature of the weapons used that first day. Williams cited multiple police sources. He is a seasoned reporter on a show that takes itself seriously. In retrospect, it is easy to see why authorities would want to bend the narrative to an AR-15, but why would anyone have chosen to mislead Williams on day two?

Equally under-reported is the disposition of the second suspect. On day one, the media were reporting that the police had apprehended a likely second shooter. As CBS News reporter John Miller said definitively, “They have a second person in custody.” He pointed out that this was not at all unprecedented given that there were two shooters at Columbine. Fox News described this person as wearing a black jacket and camouflage pants. According to Fox, a SWAT team escorted him out of the woods.

The Alex Jones Channel, although not always reliable, put together a nonconspiratorial video using network news clips of the chase in the woods, the capture, and interviews with witnesses. ABC News interviewed both a well-spoken child and an adult who confirmed seeing the man in custody. “They did walk a guy out of the woods with handcuffs,” said the man. The fellow then pointed the reporter to a police car where the alleged second shooter was still sitting.

Admittedly, the media got much wrong on day one: the name of the shooter, the mother’s relationship to the school, the supposed murder of the father, but the media quickly walked this information back. If they retracted the stories about the four handguns or the second shooter — or even explained the discrepancies — I have been unable to find any clarification, and the Huffington Post piece provided none either.

Until I see firm evidence, I remain agnostic about the official Sandy Hook narrative. My investigations into TWA Flight 800 and the Oklahoma City bombing have taught me to be wary of an “evolving” story line. In those two tragedies, as is often the case, the early reporting was the most reliable.

With TWA Flight 800, for instance, all initial reporting pointed to a missile strike as the cause of the highly visible explosion that killed 230 people off the coast of Long Island in July 1996. In the weeks that followed, without any new evidence, the Clinton Justice Department ignored the 270 FBI eyewitnesses to a missile strike and shifted the storyline from a missile to a bomb.

The FBI talked exclusively to the New York Times, and the Times returned the favor by interviewing none of the eyewitnesses. The cherry-picked evidence led to the following above-the-fold headline four weeks after the disaster — “Prime Evidence Found That Device Exploded in Cabin of Flight 800.”

Although not as unnerving as a missile strike, the bomb scenario threatened the peace and prosperity message to be promoted at the Democratic National Convention just days away. Whether coordinated with the White House or not, the Times simply ceased reporting on the bomb. A month later, the official narrative shifted from a bomb to a center fuel tank explosion, a possibility that had been ruled out a month earlier. Like the networks at Sandy Hook, the Times never bothered to explain what happened to the evidence that led to the earlier conclusions.

In a similar spirit, days after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the Washington Post reported specific FBI testimony describing “eyewitness accounts of a yellow Mercury with McVeigh and another man inside speeding away from a parking lot near the federal building.” (Italics mine)

The media, however, quickly lost interest in the swarthy John Doe No. 2. The likely reason is that If he proved to be an Islamic radical, it would be harder to blame the “Republican Revolution” for the bombing. At McVeigh’s trial, the Justice Department did not put a single one of the many reliable eyewitnesses on the stand because every one of them saw McVeigh with his foreign-looking accomplice. Again, the media chose not to notice the discrepancy. As Clinton himself acknowledged, Oklahoma City — i.e. the reporting on Oklahoma City — saved his presidency.

Bottom line: if the Democrat-media complex can turn an obvious missile strike into a mechanical failure and lose John Doe #2 to history, turning four handguns into an assault weapon and making a second shooter disappear is small beer.
