Another eligibility question in the mix; Infanticide justified by ethicists; Obama denies Medicaid money to Texas; Rep. West opines on US "safety net"; Pennsylvania challenges Obama's spot on ballot; "Shut Down the Corporations Day of Action"; Administration "not interested in lowering gas prices"; Department of Defense not aware of new $750,000 soccer field at Gitmo; This President DOES negotiate with terrorists; Texas employs gun boats along border; Obama negotiates unilaterally with N. Korea

Western Journalism writes [as today we hear Sheriff Joe Arpaio's "posse" report on Obama's eligibility]: But new questions about the status of BHO’s teen age mother Stanley Ann Dunham are surfacing as analysis at another web site is revealing a Congressional rule change for people born between December 23, 1952 and November 13, 1986 puts in serious doubt Stanley Ann Dunham’s ability to confer citizenship status on her son.
Since Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. was born in 1961, this newly discovered law involves Dunham’s age because she was only 18 at time of delivery!  The law says:
”When one parent was a U.S. citizen and the other a foreign national, the U.S. citizen parent must have resided in the U.S. for a total of 10 years prior to birth of the child with FIVE of the years after the age of 14.” Stanley Ann Dunham did not meet requisite status according to blog discovery.  One commenter said, “She was not old enough to register Obama’s birth in Hawaii or anywhere else in the U.S. as a Natural Born Citizen as she did not meet the residency requirements!  Backing this statement up, another commenter reiterates:” The law specifically outlines the requirements for a CITIZEN mother to confer citizenship to her baby.  Ann Dunham was NOT old enough-case closed!”

Conservative Byte reports: Two ethicists working with Australian universities argue in the latest online edition of the Journal of Medical Ethics that if abortion of a fetus is allowable, so to should be the termination of a newborn.
Alberto Giubilini with Monash University in Melbourne and Francesca Minerva at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne write that in “circumstances occur[ing] after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible.”
The two are quick to note that they prefer the term “after-birth abortion“ as opposed to ”infanticide.” Why? Because it “[emphasizes] that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus (on which ‘abortions’ in the traditional sense are performed) rather than to that of a child.”
An local NBC affiliate investigative report found Colorado welfare cards used at ATMs in casinos, liquor stores, strip clubs, amusement parks, and even out-of-state locations like Disneyland and Las Vegas. The WFB staff reports. [Fraud?  What fraud?  We've been told there is almost NO fraud!]
Life News reports: Planned Parenthood is spewing misguided rage towards Texas governor Rick Perry, claiming he is to blame for the recent Medicaid revocation (of the 1114-Medicaid waiver) in the state that will impact 130,000 Texas women.
 Texas decided to bar the Women’s Health Program funding from abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, in May of last year. Almost immediately, the Obama administration threatened to pull Medicaid from Texas if funding wasn’t reinstated for the abortion giant. Texas refused, and in turn, the Obama administration decided last week to yank the annual $40,000,000 Texas received for its Medicaid program, beginning in March. This also results in another $17,000,000 loss to Planned Parenthood of Texas.

Think Progress reports on Rep. Allen West: "Our party firmly believes in the safety net. We reject the idea of the safety net becoming a hammock. ... What Republicans have long understood is that poor communities are best served when they're empowered to care for themselves. The more they come to rely on government checks, the less they learn to rely on their own ability and ingenuity. For this reason, the Republican value of minimizing government dependence is particularly beneficial to the poorest among us. Conversely, the Democratic appetite for ever-increasing redistributionary handouts is in fact the most insidious form of slavery remaining in the world today, and it does not promote economic freedom."
Western Journalism opines: The latest state to hear arguments challenging President Barack Hussein Obama’s eligibility to be on its 2012 Presidential ballot is  Pennsylvania.
Last week, Attorney Philip J. Berg officially challenged the nomination petition of Obama. A lifetime resident of the state of Pennsylvania, Mr. Berg was born and raised in the city and county of Philadelphia. Interestingly enough, he is a registered Democrat. It is important to remember that questions regarding Obama’s eligibility were first asked by supporters of the current Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton,  when she was running for the Democratic presidential nomination four years ago.
KATU reports: The vandalism comes ahead of a planned Occupy Portland march and rally in Portland on Wednesday afternoon as part of the Shut Down the Corporations Day of Action. The event is also known as the F29 march and organizers said they will be focusing on corporations that are part of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
Yahoo News reports: President Barack Obama's Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu uttered the kind of Washington gaffe that consists of telling the truth when inconvenient. According to Politico, Chu admitted to a House committee that the administration is not interested in lowering gas prices.
Chu, along with the Obama administration, regards the spike in gas prices as a feature rather than a bug. High gas prices provide an incentive for alternate energy technology, a priority for the White House, and a decrease in reliance on oil for energy.
The Heritage Foundation points out that hammering the American consumer with high gas prices to make electric and hybrid cars more appealing is consistent with Obama administration policy and Chu's philosophy. That explains the refusal to allow the building of the Keystone XL pipeline and to allow drilling in wide areas of the U.S. and offshore areas.
Daily Caller reports: In the wake of the revelation that the Department of Defense has spend $750,000 on a soccer field for detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp pressed Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta on his knowledge of the expenditure at a Budget Committee hearing on Wednesday.
Panetta denied knowledge of the project.
National Review reports: The Arabic-language newspaper al-Arabiya reported on Tuesday that the Obama administration has offered to release Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman to Egypt. Abdel Rahman is the infamous “Blind Sheikh” who was convicted in 1995 for masterminding a terrorist war against the United States that included the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a plot to bomb New York City landmarks. According to the late Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda’s founder, Abdel Rahman is also responsible for the fatwa — the necessary Islamic edict — that green-lighted the 9/11 attacks.
The alleged offer to release Abdel Rahman is said to be an effort to end the impasse over 16 American “civil-society activists” (including the son of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood) being detained by Egypt’s interim government.
American immigration authorities permitted Abdel Rahman to settle in the United States in 1990, eventually giving him permanent residence status as a “religious worker,” even though his long history of inciting terror and his virulent anti-Americanism were well known — and even though his name appeared on U.S. terrorist watch lists.
CNN reports: Next month, the state's Department of Public Safety will deploy the first of a fleet of six gunboats on the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border between the state and Mexico, CNN affiliate WFAA-TV reports.
The 34-foot-long boats, each powered by three, 300-horsepower outboard engines, will have bulletproof plating and six machine guns apiece, not unlike the river patrol boats the U.S. Navy used during the Vietnam War.
The vessels will be able to operate in as little as 2 feet of water, according to the report, and will work with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to combat drug smuggling coming across the Rio Grande.
"They're finding out when those people are coming across, and one of the things they need to be able to do is interdict them on the water," Texas state Rep. Paul Workman told CNN affiliate KVUE-TV when the first of the boats, the JD Davis, was christened in December.
American Enterprise Institute reports: In the trumpeted North Korea agreement released today, the United States pledged once again that we harbor “no hostile intent” toward the Pyongyang regime.  But unlike the 2000 agreement, apparently the North Koreans do not reciprocate, and make no such commitment.
So let’s review the bidding one last time.  President Obama has “no hostile intent” toward North Korea, but seeks no such assurance from North Korea that the American people will be safe from Pyongyang’s predations.  Another diplomatic triumph!

    1. Great story about the birth status of Obama's mother ! Wonder if the mainstream media will cover it...And you have to admire Allen West and his insight. Thanks for sharing.

      Of course the Obama administration wants high gas prices to support ITS green energy agenda; and, of course Obama will negotiate with terrorists (hey, those guys are just his brothers you know!)
