INS docs and Kenyan birth docs go missing; Voter fraud easy in Vermont; We are Breitbart; Critical Race Theory; Presidential statements; Obamacare will cost double what was promised; FEMA denies funds to Illinois: IRS going after tax preparers; US indirectly subsidizing Syrian mass murder; Obama retaliates vs Texas; Bill Maher push-back; Natural-gas powered vehicles don't get funded; Biden, on being out of touch; Obama effigy burned in Afghanistan; Taliban threatens beheadings;

Minute Man PAC reports: The Cold Case Posse was assembled by Sheriff Joe after hundreds of constituents expressed the fear that Obama’s name was being put on the 2012 election ballot in Arizona using a fraudulent document. And as part of their investigation to debunk speculation that Obama was actually born in Kenya, they checked to determine whether a young mother arrived in the United States from Kenya shortly after Obama’s reported Aug. 4, 1961 date of birth. The only problem: THE RECORDS ARE MISSING.

Out of ten years’ records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service cards filled out by passengers arriving on international flights of the Untied States, only one week is missing from the National Archives in Washington, D.C., – the week of Barack Hussein Obama’s birth, and nobody seems to know where they went. The investigation report reads, “to date, investigators have not been able to locate the relevant airline passenger flight manifests for 1961.”

The National Archives has even confirmed the investigation’s report that not only are the INS records for those flights arriving in Hawaii during the week of Obama’s birth missing on the microfilm reels examined, the records are also missing in the primary database. And the evidence – or lack thereof – just keeps piling up. 
The Kenyan government even investigated the possibility of Obama’s birth in Kenya, but Nairobi officials were unable to find evidence Obama was born in Kenya – instead officials said the government had “information” that relevant birth records may have been removed or were otherwise missing…

Breitbart reports: James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released a new video exposing just how easy it is to commit voter fraud in Vermont.

The video, a sequel to O'Keefe's "Primary of the Living Dead" in New Hampshire, shows a Veritas agent entering various voting places around the state of Vermont, giving a different name each time. Each time, he is given a ballot without showing an ID, to his disbelief.
In the video, the agent repeatedly requests (but does not take) a Republican primary ballot. As he explained to "We wanted to remind viewers this is not a partisan issue. This is a situation wherein anyone -- Republican or Democrat -- can exploit the system." 
The new video follows in the wake of a highly-politicized media attack on Mr. O’Keefe after his exposure of voter fraud in New Hampshire. Those videos resulted in calls from the left for O’Keefe’s arrest. However, the videos soon resulted in the New Hampshire State Senate passing a new bill requiring voter ID.
O'Keefe's new video from Vermont could not be more timely, coming the day after the U.S. Department of Justice's civil rights division blocked a Texas photo ID requirement for voters--to the applause of the American Civil Liberties Union, which claimed that the law was “discriminatory” against “Latinos, African-Americans, elderly citizens, and others.”

Breitbart brings us the words of Gerald R. Molen, an Oscar-winning film producer whose credits include "Rain Man," "Minority Report," "Twister," "Schindler's List" and "Jurassic Park."

Yes, the sounds are there. We just don't listen. We only hear (or see) what we want. As the country gasps for clarity of purpose, we the people figure someone or something else will come along and fix the problems for us. I don't think so. The warning signs have been there for a long time. A very long time. It is my humble opinion that, during these turbulent times, we find ourselves in the dilemma of our lifetimes. As a country we have been either asleep or just too comfortable in our own cocoons to realize the depth of our plight.
An event took place in 2008 that changed the world we live in. It changed the face of America, it changed the direction of our moral values, it changed how we view the future and how we see ourselves as human beings and it changed the make up of our basic freedoms that we so irreverently tossed aside for entitlement freebies and empty promises by the engineers at the helm.
It's in our DNA. The sad part is we have to get to the point of losing everything before we stand tall and state unequivocally, "No more. Stop the madness. Stop it now!"
The event I speak of, of course, was the presidential election of 2008. We put a man in office, a man not really qualified to be a dog catcher, much less the most powerful man in the world. We refused to listen to what he was saying. We missed the first gasp of incredulity when he promised to transform America. Oh, we bought into the cliched slogans of "hope and change." We liked his smile, his ability to read from a teleprompter, his super-friendly demeanor and his charismatic oratorical skills. Yeah, we jumped in with both feet thinking the country would show the world we had found our mojo and racism was gone forever.
Once again, our ears failed us. Our eyes failed us. We failed to hear that horrific sucking sound of our falling into the vortex of calm voices pushing us ever so gently but with assured and deft platitudes, into the hell of our own making.
Or will we stand up to the forces of promises of easy living and more and more entitlements? It won't be easy, but it is necessary, or we won't live in the America we grew up in.
Yes, there is a price to pay for the greatness of America. Are we and will we stand up to the task and be willing to carry our portion of that burden? It is my fervent and continued prayer that we will find the resolve, the strength, the willingness and the love of country enough to make a difference.
[As for Andrew Breitbart:] We cannot allow his passing to be just a closing of another chapter in the fortunes of America. We must carry his part of the burden he was so willing to share for all of us.  [There is much more for those who wish to read the full article.]
Townhall reports: The full video was only found after Harvard Professor Charles Ogletree, an Obama campaign advisor, showed it in one of his classes. He proceeded to inform the audience that "we hid this throughout the 2008 campaign," but that he didn't care if people found out about it now.
So what's the relevance? The relevance is that Derrick Bell was a massive racial radical. He was the father of a fringe legal theory called the critical race theory, which states first that racial discrimination can never be eliminated; and second, that the constitutional and legal system is based on racism -- loaded with it -- and is therefore uncorrectable.
American Thinker writes: President Obama knows that every public statement he makes is recorded and lives forever on the internet.  That is cause for serious worry.  The best campaign ad to run against Obama is one that uses his own words -- and those of the officials he has empowered -- against him.  When it comes to high gasoline prices, this is a target-rich environment.
But there is a delicious irony in taking advantage of Obama's Obama Obsession.  He has been so busy bloviating over the last few years, so eager to display his omniscience when it comes to energy, that there is plenty of visual material to cull from the public domain that can and will be used against him as the campaign season rolls on, if the GOP has any brains.  Call it divine justice that the man who seemingly can never stop talking can be hoisted on his own petard.

Washington Examiner reports: President Obama's national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, according to a new projection released today by the Congressional Budget Office, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law.
Huffington Post reports: Illinois lawmakers spoke out this weekend after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) denied disaster funding to an Illinois town that was devastated by a Feb. 29 tornado -- which also killed seven residents.
FEMA issued the ruling over the weekend, saying the damage did not constitute a federal disaster, the Chicago Tribune reports. An agency spokesman told the Tribune they determined that the communities could rebuild with assistance from state and local agencies, along with private insurance and volunteer groups.
Harrisburg was not the only town impacted by the decision. According to Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Sen. Dick Durbin's (D-Ill.) office, five Southern Illinois counties were badly damaged in the late February storm.
Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn said he was "extremely disappointed" in the FEMA decision, and plans to appeal it.
The National Weather Service listed the twister that hit Harrisburg as an EF4, the second-highest rating given to twisters based on damage, the Associated Press reports. Scientists said it was 200 yards wide with winds up to 170 mph. 
The announcement came after FEMA approved disaster funding to other Midwestern towns hit by the late February storm system. The same sort of tornado that hit Harrisburg -- an EF4 -- also struck six southern Indiana counties, which will receive federal funds. The federal government will also give money to seven counties of Kentucky affected by the same storm system.
"I want to know how this decision was reached and why," Gregg said. "Because frankly, I don't understand it."

Weekly Standard reports [One more Obama Job Destroying Bill]: Tomorrow, the Institute for Justice (IJ) will file a lawsuit against perhaps the most hated of all federal agencies—the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
The suit challenges licensing requirements that the IRS introduced last year. Tax return preparers must take a test and obtain IRS permission—and pay fees to the bureaucracy—before they can continue to offer their services. As IJ attorney Dan Alban says in the below video, “Congress never gave the IRS the authority to license tax preparers, and the IRS can’t give itself that power.”
Occupational licensing requirements almost invariably hurt small businesses, to the benefit of the big ones. That’s certainly been the case in previous economic liberty suits IJ has fought, including burdensome licensing requirements for florists, hair-braiders, and casket-builders. 
Nearly 60 percent of individual returns are completed by paid preparers. Tax preparation is a $9 billion industry. Around 350,000 tax preparers—those not exempt from the new rules—will see the cost of doing business go up. They’ll either pass on those extra fees to their clients, or they’ll simply go out of business. Which might be exactly what the big guns in the tax business are hoping for.
Fox News reports: A bipartisan group of senators is calling on the Pentagon to stop doing business with a Russian arms exporter that is providing weapons to Syria.
In a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Monday, the 17 Republicans and Democrats cited reports that the company, Rosoboronexport, has shipped weapons to Syria and recently signed a deal for 36 combat jets with President Bashar Assad's government.
Separately, the Defense Department is buying 21 helicopters for the Afghan military from Rosoboronexport. The lawmakers said this no-bid contract is worth $375 million.
The senators complained that U.S. tax dollars should not be "indirectly subsidizing the mass murder of Syrian civilians."
Family Research Council reports: Last Friday, the Obama administration proved that it's more than capable of cutting funds--in retaliation. As payback for Texas severing ties with Planned Parenthood, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius promised to take out her anger on the state's low-income women. Starting this May, the government will phase out more than $30 million in health coverage for the most underprivileged people in the state--all because Texas wanted its citizens to have the benefit of unbiased care. The Obama administration decided to kill the funding for cancer, STD, and breast screenings because Gov. Rick Perry (R) dared to look beyond Planned Parenthood to providers who aren't under congressional investigation.
Now, Gov. Perry is left to scrounge through his budget to fill the 90% program void created by the administration's ideological blackmail. I was in a meeting with the Governor this weekend where he said he wouldn't allow the poor of Texas to be held hostage by HHS. Earlier, he vowed to fund the program: "We'll find the money," Gov. Perry said.

Politico reports: David Axelrod bails on Bill Maher 

On Thursday, The Daily Caller reported that the Alabama Democratic Party had scrubbed its website of an announcement for its upcoming fundraiser headlined by Maher.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The Human Events reports: Senate Tuesday killed legislation to spend billions of taxpayer dollars to encourage companies to use natural-gas powered vehicles. The legislation also would have benefited wealthy backers of the Democratic measure, including George Soros, T. Boone Pickens, and Kevin G. Douglas. 


Washington Examiner reports: Vice President Joe Biden addressed 87 wealthy Democrats last night attending a fundraiser at the home of Sen. John Kerry in Georgetown. As they dined on grass-fed New York strip steaks and white truffle mashed potatos underneath a outdoor tent, Biden criticized Republicans for being out of touch.

“These guys don’t have a sense of the average folks out there,” Biden said according to the pool report, “They don’t know what it means to be middle class.”
87 guests paid a minimum of $10,000-per-couple to attend the dinner.
MSNBC reports: Earlier Tuesday thousands of people took to the streets in eastern Afghanistan to protest the killings, burning an effigy of Obama and calling for the killer to be tried in Afghanistan.
Demonstrators in the city of Jalalabad chanted "Death to America -- Death to Obama" and blocked the main highway to Afghanistan's capital, Kabul, Britain's Daily Telegraph reported
Reuters reports: Suspected insurgents opened fire on Tuesday on senior Afghan investigators of the massacre of 16 civilians by a lone U.S. soldier, Afghan officials said, just hours after the Taliban threatened to behead American troops to avenge the killings.
