Six more states questioning Obama's eligibility; Newt was Reagan's champion on Capitol Hill; Obama jobs go to Chinese; Arrest of Christians costs Dearborn, MI $100,000; Secret Seal Team 6 exposed by Obama; Racial segregation at lowest level in 100 yrs; Possible pipe bombs at airport found and then ignored; Juan's new face of racism; Taxes will go up 30% in 2 years; Holder may be held in Contempt of Congress; Who's Next?;

Expose Obama writes: An administrative law judge in Georgia could decide as early as this week whether voters in the state convinced him Barack Obama’s name should be removed from the 2012 presidential ballot because he is not qualified to hold the office.
But win,lose or draw,the fight isn’t going to be over,as other cases are erupting across the nation,with challenges being raised anew even in Obama’s own adopted political network in Illinois.


Western Journalism opines: Michael Reagan says: As leader of GOP forces in the House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich was the party’s leading warrior — a politician who never feared to speak his mind. Naturally he made enemies, some within his own party. And it is those enemies and their successors who are out to get Newt’s scalp today. Moreover, it is important to remember that Newt was Ronald Reagan’s champion on Capitol Hill. My father knew and appreciated that fact.
Newt fights. Real Republicans need fighters, not mealy-mouthed compromisers who shrink away from any form of combat. He may stray away from what many of his GOP colleagues consider proper Republican behavior. But Newt is ready and able to take the fight to Obama, and he will win that fight unless the compromisers have their way.
ABC News reports: Diane Sawyer reporting on U.S. bridge projects going to the Chinese... NOT Americans[But, But - Obama is bringing more jobs to Americans, right?]
The bridges are right here in the U.S. but approved for Chinese contractors to come
in and do the work.  What about jobs for Americans??? [ Guess what!  The unions are mad!]


Arresting Christians costs DEARBORN $100,000

Judge orders officials to pay up in stunning dispute

 A judge in Detroit has ruled that the decision by police in Dearborn to arrest a Christian pastor who wanted to hand out Christian tracts at the city’s Arab fest in 2009 will cost the city some $100,000.
That’s the decision following a request from the pastor’s attorneys that the losing side in the First Amendment argument over expressing religious perspectives on city streets be required to pay them for their work on behalf of Christian Pastor George Saieg. Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen said his recommendation for fees and costs totaling $103,401.96 be awarded in the case that was handled by attorney Robert J. Muise. 
Muise, in fact, recently won acquittals on charges of “disturbing the peace” brought by Dearborn against a group of Christians after they were arrested by Dearborn police in 2010 for a similar kind of speech activity.
The Detroit News had reported that officials for a pro-Islamic advocacy organization accused the Christians of not playing by the rules of the Arab fest. The report said members of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations accused the Christians of passing out missionary literature at the festival in violation of rules that required them either to pass out the materials from a “paid booth” or “outside of the festival area.”
Washington Times writes: The dramatic rescue of an American aid worker and her Danish colleague in Somalia by Navy commandos was a terrific encore to the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan nine months ago. However, all the White House-driven publicity for both events has helped turn the once-secret SEAL Team 6 into a household term, with likely negative consequences.
Although SEAL Team 6 and its official successor, the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, have been around since the 1980s, their missions always were kept secret to shieldheir members’ identities and protect operational security.  The one and only reason why there has been so much recent publicity on SEAL Team 6 rests with the commander in chief 
Wall ST. Journal writes: An exodus of African-Americans from struggling industrial cities such as Detroit and the growth of Sunbelt states have pushed racial segregation in U.S. metropolitan areas to its lowest level in a century, according to a new study.-
The report, released by the conservative Manhattan Institute, said U.S. cities are more integrated now than at any time since 1910, based on analysis of census data from neighborhoods.
Fifty years ago, nearly half the black population lived in a ghetto, the study said, while today that proportion has shrunk to 20%. All-white neighborhoods in U.S. cities are effectively extinct, according to the report.
Immigration and gentrification have helped convert ghettos into racially mixed communities and contributed to diversifying suburbia, said economists Edward Glaeser of Harvard University.
New York Post reports: Clueless TSA agents found two possible pipe bombs in a passenger’s luggage yesterday at La Guardia Airport — and kept them in a public area for six hours without notifying cops, The Post has learned.
The Transportation Security Administration bozos at one point left the pipes — which eventually turned out to be harmless — resting on a radiator as hundreds of fliers passed through security nearby, sources said.
“Six hours to report a potential bomb? It’s outrageous,” one Port Authority police official fumed. [I'm sure they got everybody to take off their shoes, though.  Doesn't this make us feel safe and trust in the government?] Read more:
Examiner writes: Juan Williams writes: "The language of GOP racial politics is heavy on euphemisms that allow the speaker to deny any responsibility for the racial content of his message. The code words in this game are “entitlement society” — as used by Mitt Romney — and “poor work ethic” and “food stamp president” — as used by Newt Gingrich. References to a lack of respect for the “Founding Fathers” and the “Constitution” also make certain ears perk up by demonizing anyone supposedly threatening core “old-fashioned American values." 
Remember when Newt Gingrich called Williams by his first name?  Liberals like Geraldo Rivera made the ridiculous claim that was racist.
Jim Taranto of the Wall Street Journal added:
Really? Accusing someone of not respecting "the 'Constitution' " is a racial code word? If that were true, the American Civil Liberties Union would be the biggest racist organization around.
Townhall reports: From new Congressional Budget Outlook report: Taxes to go up 30% in years 2012 and 2014.  
University of California reports: private spending falls significantly in response to gov't spending because gov't has to take money away from citizens in order to dole it out
You'd better believe the CBO's latest economic projections are causing a lot of heartburn at the White House.    The Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday predicted the budget deficit will rise to $1.08 trillion in 2012.  CBO also projected the jobless rate would rise to 8.9 percent by the end of 2012, and to 9.2 percent in 2013.  These are much dimmer forecasts than in CBO's last report in August, when the office projected a $973 billion deficit. The report reflects weaker corporate tax revenue and the extension for two months of the payroll tax holiday.
A rising deficit and unemployment rate would hamper President Obama's reelection effort, which in recent weeks has seemed to be on stronger footing. If the CBO estimate is correct, it would mean that the United States recorded a deficit of more than $1 trillion for every year of Obama’s first term.
CBO had forecast an 8.5 percent unemployment rate for the end of 2012 in its August report. It now expects the jobless rate to be higher, and to still be at 7 percent in 2015. The higher unemployment numbers are due to lower economic growth than previously estimated. Gross domestic product for 2011 is now estimated to have grown 1.6 percent in 2011, down from the 2.3 percent forecast in August.

Politico writes: House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) threatened Tuesday to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress if the Justice Department did not provide certain documents in response to the committee’s subpoena.
In a letter to Holder, Issa wrote that “this committee will have no alternative but to move forward with proceedings to hold you in contempt of Congress” if Holder and the DOJ didn’t produce documents they demanded relating o the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal.
Holder has until Thursday, Feb. 9. to comply, according to Issa.
Townhall writes: President Obama and his radical feminist enforcers have had it in for Catholic medical providers from the get-go. It's about time all people of faith fought back against this unprecedented encroachment on religious liberty. First, they came for the Catholics. Who's next?
NARAL, NOW, Ms. Magazine and the Feminist Majority Foundation all cheered the administration's abuse of the Obamacare law to ram abortion down pro-life medical professionals' throats. Femme dinosaur Eleanor Smeal gloated over the news that the administration had rejected church officials' pleas for compromises: "At last," she exulted, the left's goal of "no-cost birth control" for all had been achieved.
As always, tolerance is a one-way street in the Age of Obama. "Choice" is in the eye (and iron fist) of the First Amendment usurper.
American Thinker opines:  The "morning after" pill is also included. (snip) the real issue is not birth control or the provision of it. The central issue is government intimidation of and control over religious institutions.
