Walesa Declines Invitation to Meet With Obama; Carter Era Stagflation is Back; The Down Low on Obama's Connecticut SSN; 500,00 Per Year From Central America Smuggled into America; Barney Frank's Illegal Activities at Fannie Mae;

Yahoo News reports: Lech Walesa, Poland's Solidarity-era leader, ex-president and 1983 Nobel Peace Prize winner said Friday he would not accept an invitation to meet fellow Nobel winner US President Barack Obama.
"I expect this meeting would only amount to a photo opportunity," Walesa told AFP.
Expose Obama writes: The worst economic conditions in recent memory were during the Jimmy Carter era of stagflation. Stagflation was a term coined in the 1970s to describe high unemployment with high inflation. Stagflation is back. Translation: America’s middle class is getting poorer; a record number of middle class workers are out of work. If you are lucky enough to have a job, your wages aren’t going up, but you are facing higher prices for everything.
"Recent data suggests that the current economic recovery is both sluggish and slowing with unemployment stubbornly high," this from a page one story in Investor's Business Daily.
American Thinker opines: Jack Cashill recently detailed what Susan Daniels, a private investigator, has learned about Mr. Obama's Social Security Number.  In a nutshell, the president's SSN was issued in 1977 with a Connecticut Area Number (first 3 digits).
Here's what the SS official web site says, in relevant part:
The Area Number [first 3 digits] is assigned by the geographical region. Prior to 1972, cards were issued in local Social Security offices around the country and the Area Number represented the State in which the card was issued. This did not necessarily have to be the State where the applicant lived, since a person could apply for their card in any Social Security office. Since 1972, when SSA began assigning SSNs and issuing cards centrally from Baltimore, the area number assigned has been based on the ZIP code in the mailing address provided on the application for the original Social Security card. The applicant's mailing address does not have to be the same as their place of residence. Thus, the Area Number does not necessarily represent the State of residence of the applicant, either prior to 1972 or since.
One must wonder if the above was written or revised in the last three years in the wake of inquiries about Mr. Obama's SSN to draw a red herring across the trail.
The LA Times writes: Nearly 500,000 people from Central America and beyond traverse Mexico each year en route to the U.S., according to the Mexican government human rights office. Most now have to pay a smuggler, and increasingly, they are kidnapped, held for ransom and in the most brutal of cases, killed. Their tormentors are criminal gangs often working in cahoots with Mexican immigration and police agents, authorities say.,0,7733401.story
Investors Business Daily wrote this in an Editorial: Two years after politically motivated mortgage lending triggered the biggest collapse since the Great Depression, House Finance Committee Chairman Barney Frank, D-Mass., has been found to have helped one of his lovers, Herbie Moses, land a six-figure job at Fannie Mae, the agency at the center of the meltdown and one he had a responsibility to regulate.
Instead of exerting oversight over this agency to serve the public, he used the agency to benefit cronies and himself. It's hardly the first time he's exacted favors for his lovers — he used his office to "fix" the traffic tickets of another lover years ago.
He didn't do it because he was a softie. New York Times reporter and author Gretchen Morgenson found that Frank "was one of (Fannie Mae's) really big beneficiaries, albeit indirectly," as she told NPR.
