Hagel: Gee, I Guess We Won't Deactivate NYC's ONLY Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Team Now
"Make the sequester hurt" hit's a hurdle after terrorism in Boston
The only U.S. military team assigned to New York City to support first responders in case of a disaster will remain on duty. It was just saved on the brink of elimination.Wake up call to those still living in a pre-9/11 bubble, again.
A day after the bombings at the Boston Marathon, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel rescinded his decision to disband the rapid-response unit based at Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn.
His abrupt change of mind was a relief to New Yorkers amid the sudden new concerns about terrorism. During testimony on Capitol Hill, Mr. Hagel announced that the Pentagon won't deactivate the 24th National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Team (WMD-CST)[...]
WMD-CSTs are trained to provide rapid military support to civil authorities in the event of a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear threat.
Mr. Hagel acknowledged that his reversal on funding the pair of units in New York and Florida means they will not become the victims of federal cost-cutting[...]
"The 24th National Guard WMD-CST team has done exceptional job, not just in New York, but also in Boston, where they were on the ground responding to the horrific attack on the marathon," Mr. Grimm said. "This week's events have reminded us that we must remain vigilant, and this elite team assists that effort." [More..]

New York Democrat Is Honored To Be Part Of A Delegation Representing The US At Funeral Of Chavez
The funeral for former Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez will be held tomorrow and a New Yorker will be representing the United States at the event–Queens Congressman Gregory Meeks.I would suggest the group 'tour' these areas while they are there. Oh wait, they are off limits..
“I am honored to be a part of a delegation that will represent the United States at the Funeral of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Friday, March 8,” Mr. Meeks, a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said in a statement. “My deepest sympathies go out to the family of President Chavez and the people of Venezuela. Venezuela is an important nation to the Western Hemisphere. I remain committed to building the relationship between our nations. As always, I stand in continued support of the Venezuelan people especially at this time of mourning.”

Bob Woodward: Obama Is Showing 'A Kind Of Madness'..
Bob Woodward has gone from calling Obama a liar to mad.
The Washington Post's Bob Woodward ripped into President Barack Obama on "Morning Joe" today, saying he's exhibiting a "kind of madness I haven't seen in a long time" for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns.[More...]From liar to mad, well, not in the mad scientist kinda way. Mad in I'm your King and I will do what I want to get my way without admitting what I am saying is a lie sorta mad kinda way.
I forgot, Bronco Bama told me not to say anything about this. I hope Newport News person named Tim doesn't see this post.

Judge in Chicago Officially Insane
Well, we all knew they were insane, now we have proof:
A Democratic Party-backed judge who won re-election in November while facing battery charges was found not guilty Monday — by reason of insanity.The worst part? After being indicted she won reelection:
The insanity verdict could aid the judge's effort to return to the bench.
Bar associations have recommended since 2000 that Brim be tossed from her $182,000-a-year job, but voters have kept returning her to the bench.Chicago: when every one is corrupt, no one is.

Democrats Eating Their Own Over Cronyism
A behind-the-scenes political maneuver by Newark Mayor Cory Booker to fill a vacant council seat with his choice led to a near-riot in city hall tonight, with dozens of residents rushing the council stage and police responding with pepper-spray.This is where the real fun begins.
After weeks of jockeying for Rep. Donald Payne’s successor, Booker made an unprecedented personal appearance to cast the deciding vote with his council allies for Shanique Davis Speight, a longtime ally of power broker Stephen Adubato, over the angry objections of residents.
After the vote, residents stood chanting "Cory’s gotta go!" as officials shouted over the confusion.Sweet!
But when Speight was escorted by police to be sworn in, a group of residents, led by SEIU Local 617 President Rahaman Muhammad, stormed the dais and appeared to lunge toward Speight and her grade-school-age son.
Police restrained the group as they toppled a podium and residents were caught in the rush. When Muhammad would not give way, an officer doused him with pepper spray, along with residents, reporters and at least one other officer.
Hat tip: Gabriel.

AUDIO: David Axelrod in 1995: Cut Funding to Big Bird; NRA Responsible for OKC
PJ Media Exclusive:
Just this morning, PJ Media received the audio from a 1995 David Axelrod appearance on Beyond the Beltway, a Chicago-based talk show hosted by Bruce DuMont.Too bad this didn't come out a lot sooner.
Axelrod's appearances are listed here in the show's archives. I requested all of the tapes, and received them a short time ago. Here are the relevant clips:
From 5/21/1995, regarding the 1995 Oklahoma City terrorist bombing which murdered 168 people — the worst act of terror on American soil prior to September 11, 2001. Axelrod blames "rhetoric" from the NRA for contributing to the bombing and the barricading of Pennsylvania Avenue. Also from the 5/21/1995 appearance — Axelrod blames Republican presidents for running up the deficit, claiming that the president is primarily responsible for overspending. Also, he claims that the Democratic Congress — Democrats were in control of the House for 40 years prior to 1995 — tried to stop the Republican overspending. Also from the 5/21/1995 appearance — Axelrod thinks it is a good idea to cut federal funding of PBS. Last month, Axelrod led a campaign against Mitt Romney's assertion that this funding should be cut

Another Reason To Vote For Romney: Pelosi Headlined DCCC Fundraiser With Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups
The Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Democratic Party fundraiser with leaders of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood front groups in May of this year.The Democrats would sell their souls to the devil to stay in power, and they appeared to have done just that.
The invitation-only fundraiser was sponsored by Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.; Andre Carson, D-Ind.; and Steve Israel, D-N.Y., chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and took place on the evening of May 16, 2012, at the W Hotel in Washington D.C.
In attendance were about 20 members of a Syrian dissident group and 10 officials representing Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas front groups. Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Executive Director Nihad Awad was perhaps the most prominent attendee and played a key role in organizing the event.
CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007-2008 Holy Land Foundation Hamas money-laundering trials, was described in FBI testimony as having been created by Hamas. In a 2007 federal court filing, prosecutors described CAIR as conspiring with other branches of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.
The FBI officially severed relations with CAIR in 2008 because of its ties to Hamas.
Awad has openly championed Hamas and defended suicide bombings as "legitimate resistance."
File this under stealth jihad.

Democratic Congressman's Son Encourages Voter Fraud
Update: Rep Moran's 'Field Director' Son Resigns
I was just saying earlier this morning that I witnessed what I think was attempted voter fraud. I also noted that the attempt failed because early voters in my state have to show some sort of photo ID. But also that the attempt might have worked on election day because photo ID is not required.
This is worse. It shows the son of Democratic Congressman Jim Moran, Pat, not only encouraging voter fraud but promising DNC resources to help perpetuate it.
They say that they are against voter ID laws are there to protect voting rights. They're lying. They're against voter ID laws because it makes it harder for them to commit fraud.
Watch at least the first 8 or so minutes. The rest of it is the raw unedited footage. A preemptive strike against the Left's accusations of taking the words out of context.
Update by SH: Pat Moran is no longer working for his father's get out the vote as field director. He resigned

What? UN Affiliated Election Monitors Will Be Looking For Voter Suppression By Conservative Groups..
As one person stated: Are they replacing the New Black Panthers?
United Nations-affiliated election monitors from Europe and central Asia will be at polling places around the U.S. looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week. The intervention has drawn criticism from a prominent conservative-leaning group combating election fraud.h/t Tabitha
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe ( OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers around the county on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places.
Liberal-leaning civil rights groups met with representatives from the OSCE this week to raise their fears about what they say are systematic efforts to suppress minority voters likely to vote for President Obama.
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP and the ACLU, among other groups, warned this month in a letter to Daan Everts, a senior official with OSCE, of “a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans — particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities.”
The request for foreign monitoring of election sites drew a strong rebuke from Catherine Engelbrecht, founder and president of True the Vote, a conservative-leaning group seeking to crack down on election fraud.
“These activist groups sought assistance not from American sources, but from the United Nations,” she said in a statement to The Hill. “The United Nations has no jurisdiction over American elections.”
Previously, on October 7th, Rep Elijah Cummings and Senator Boxer targeted True the Vote
...Cummings is upset that Engelbrecht would train Americans to ensure poll veracity. So is California Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), who tweeted, “I don’t believe this is ‘True the Vote.’ I believe it’s ‘Stop the Vote.’” She asked the Department of Justice to “protect Americans from voter intimidation … No group can be allowed to intimidate or interfere with this fundamental right that is essential for American democracy.” In other words, don’t purge voter rolls of improper voters. Leave it full of dead folks, people registered to homes that don’t exist, and the like.[...]The dems want conservatives to leaver their illegal, jailed, dead, dog, cat and Mickey Mouse voters alone!
Breitbart News spoke with Engelbrecht about Cummings’ and Boxer’s attempts intimidate poll volunteers. “Rep. Cummings has no power to independently issue a subpoena,” Engelbrecht said. “But that didn’t stop him from leaking his letter to the same Los Angeles Times reporter who wrote the original story slandering us. Then Rep. Cummings went on Soledad O’Brien’s show on CNN and, just as Sen. Boxer had done the previous week all over MSNBC, he used his power of office to assault private citizens. Leaders on the left, including Soros funded organizations like Common Cause and DEMOS, are working overtime to discourage citizens from volunteering this election cycle; fear mongering to perpetuate the myth that they are somehow being victimized. Why? They are either trying to rally their base, trying to hide something, or both.

Huffpo: Five Most Overrated Krackers
Today, our nation engages in one of its most bizarre cultural rituals: the celebration of Columbus Day as a national holiday. Although history proves that Christopher Columbus was an immoral treasure hunter who merely stumbled upon a region that had already been "discovered" by indigenous non-whites, we continue to praise the vicious conquistador as a hero.I hate every iota of an overrated Kracker!
To honor the true spirit of Columbus Day, I have created my own list of overrated white people. Of course, this list is not exhaustive, as there are countless other White people who are equally underwhelming.

Race Bating from Patrick Murphy Campaign
For some reason I'm on Allen West challenger Democrat Patrick Murphy's email list. Usually I just delete them and move on. But when I saw that the latest piece of email came from Congressman John Lewis, I decided to read it.
This is pure unadulterated race baiting. The email uses a prominent black politician to try to convince minority voters in Allen West's district that West -- who is also black -- doesn't want them to vote.
I'd say I was surprised, but this is par for the course for John Lewis who is likely to cry racism at the drop of a hat. But trying to pull that card against a fellow black member of Congress? That's pretty low.
Here's the email:
Friends,This is your modern Democratic party. They try to scare black people into voting for them, even when the victim of those scare tactics is another black man.
This is deeply personal for me.
I’ve been marching and preaching and fighting for voting rights for over 50 years. Today, we’re seeing a deliberate and systematic effort on the part of Republican officials to prevent minorities, seniors, the young, and the poor from casting their ballots.
Republicans are intent on beating my friend Patrick Murphy, running for Congress against Tea Party leader Allen West in Florida's Treasure Coast, and we can’t let them steal this election. We must do everything we can to protect the vote.
Will you stand with Patrick and help today so we can make sure he wins this November?
Patrick believes like I do that voting is critical to our society and it matters. We must do everything we can to protect the vote. Too many courageous people have fought to secure the vote. Don’t let it be taken away. Stand up for Patrick and help us today with a gift. Please contribute now.

Obama Energy Policy Hurts Poor the Most
Last week, Examiner columnist and Manhattan Institute fellow Diana Furchtgott-Roth, author of the new book “Regulating to Disaster: How Green Jobs Policies Are Damaging America’s Economy,” explained that:Not only that but the policies also hurt small producers more than the so called Majors.Most people think green is good but pay little attention to associated increases in costs. In 2015, it will cost between $49 and $79 to generate one megawatt hour of electricity from natural gas. A megawatt hour from onshore wind will cost between $75 and $138, and from solar photovoltaic will cost between $242 and $455.As her book demonstrates in this chart, rising costs of energy hit lower income Americans the hardest, because they spend a higher proportion of their incomes on energy:

Survey: It's Only a War Crime When Republicans Do It
Also, Nuke the Terrorists!
A new poll shows that people are more likely to support the practice of harsh interrogation techniques under a Democratic administration then under a Republican one:
the poll numbers suggest that Americans have become more hawkish on counterterrorism policy since Barack Obama became president.And my favorite part?
Consider this: In an October 2007 Rasmussen poll, 27 percent of Americans surveyed said the United States should torture prisoners captured in the fight against terrorism, while 53 percent said it should not. In my YouGov poll, 41 percent said they would be willing to use torture -- a gain of 14 points -- while 34 percent would not, a decline of 19 points...
Respondents in 2012 are more pro-waterboarding, pro-threatening prisoners with dogs, pro-religious humiliation, and pro-forcing-prisoners-to-remain-naked-and-chained-in-uncomfortable-positions-in-cold-rooms....
Support for assassinating terrorists has also grown, though not as much as for torturing them. In part this is because assassinations have always been quite popular.
A quarter of all Americans are willing to use nuclear weapons to kill terrorists. No joke....Count me in that 25%.
To be honest, I threw in the nuclear bomb question on a lark, not expecting to find much. Boy, was I wrong.
So, I now have precisely one good reason to vote Obama.

What's Offensive to Democrats
Update by Howie: Its like totally true dude.
Which is funny if you think about it. During the convention Mrs. Obama talked about how she and Obama paid back their loans and at one time their student loan payments were larger then their mortgage payment. See Tony Rezko is good for something. But I digress, do these people really think Obama is going to forgive the same debts he actually paid back.
So if we "got rid of student loans" doesn't that mean these folks get no money. I'm not disinterested, The Xers paid ours back, no small feat. These kids need to man up and write off their 20s like the rest of us.

And Now Another Chapter Of Yes, They Really Are This Stupid
Or, in this case, hopeful?
“The ships are definitely Russian,” said noted naval author Norman Polmar after reviewing hi-resolution photos from the event. “There’s no question of that in my mind.”
Naval experts concluded the background was a photo composite of Russian ships that were overflown by what appear to be U.S. trainer jets. It remains unclear how or why the Democratic Party used what’s believed to be images of the Russian Black Sea Fleet at their convention.
Remains unclear? Oh no, it's clear. Conventions are not run by rank and file party members, they're run by the hard core party faithful. And this clearly demonstrates that the people in charge of the Democrat party have no clue when it comes to our military. Hell, I'd bet most of the people who planned this years DNC were there to spit on our military when they came back from Vietnam.

#Forward2012 Democrats' Controversial Draft Platform Passed Unanimously in Detroit in August
MFM will get right on this soon or something.:
Democrats are pretending that flaws in their party's platform, which excluded much pro-Israel language and any reference to God, are the result of "technical oversight." The truth is that the Democrats' draft platform was the result of a meticulous process handled by Newark mayor Cory Booker, and passed unanimously on August 11th.[The 11th was the day Romney announced Ryan as his VP pick...ed]No surprise Axelrod and Jarrett promptly threw Booker under the bus:
Booker insisted that the platform be perfected in all its details, asking the platform committee for "an all-encompassing resolution, ensuring that this is a grammatically tight document." No oversights were noted.
"There was almost no debate, and very little rancor," observed National Public Radio reporter Sonari Glinton, who covered the passage of the Democratic platform that weekend. He had to dig deep into history to find the last times that a party platform had caused significant controversy...[More...]

Indicted NY State Senator Shirley Huntley(D) Ran On ACORN, Union Ticket
Known as an advocate of education equality for poor minorities, Democrat Shirley Huntley got hauled away in handcuffs last week and slapped with a 20-count indictment that includes felonies such as tampering with evidence and falsifying business records. Huntley stole nearly $30,000 she steered to a fake charity that claimed to help poor parents navigate the city’s school system, according to the indictment.Nothing to see here, MFM not interested, move along.
The 74-year-old state senator named her sham nonprofit Parent Workshop, according to the New York Attorney General’s office. The fake charity claimed to help low-income folks deal with the city’s huge and complicated public school system. Instead, authorities say, the money was pocketed by Huntley’s niece, who served as the group’s treasurer, and another man, who is listed as president.
It turns out that Huntley ran for office on both the Democratic and Working Families Party (WFP) tickets, according to New York State election results reviewed by Judicial Watch. This is relevant because the WFP has very close ties to the famously corrupt nonprofit with close ties to President Obama, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). In fact, JW found that the WFP shares office space in Brooklyn with two ACORN spinoffs, New York Communities for Change (NYCC) and the Mutual Housing Association of New York.
When ACORN finally got busted for fraud, Congress cut its federal funding (Defund ACORN Act) and the group simply rebranded, creating a series of spinoffs operated by the same crooked people. Read all about it in a Judicial Watch special report born out of an extensive investigation...

Radical Islam Joins the DNC
No, I'm not kidding:
[Breeanne Howe/RedState]Starting at the end of this month the Democratic National Convention will open with a focus on Islam. 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend according to the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), the national Muslim American non-profit coordinating the two days of events they claim are non-political. ”Jumah at the DNC” begins August 29 and will start with a Friday afternoon jummah prayer followed by other unnamed programs and events, leading up to the Islamic Regal Banquet. The following day will be an all day Islamic Cultural and Fun Fest which will include discussions on the topics of Islamaphobia, Anti-Shariah, Middle Eastern Crisis, Patriot Act, National Defense Authorization Act and more. The purpose, according to BIMA, is to attract national and international attention to the plight of American Muslims and to hold political parties accountable for issues that affect them. However, not all Muslims feel that BIMA represents them and M. Zuhdi Jasser M.D., Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, has expressed serious concerns.The DNC, Islamlists useful idiots.It is troubling that the Democratic National Convention has decided to promote and lend its name and national political platform to the organizers of the “Jummah at the DNC”. The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as advertised are no moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.
A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims. Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.
This is not about their right of assembly; this group under a different name pulled the same stunt at the US capitol in 2009 claiming 20k and getting 2-3k. THIS IS ABOUT the DNC calling this an “official function” listing these radicals as typical of the DNC community and more importantly about this organization speaking out AS representing supposedly typical American Muslims (or “Mainstream”).
If that is who the DNC is consorting with then all Americans, Democrats should be concerned. There are many patriotic Muslims who are part of both parties, and when radical ideologues like this do a demonstration of “solidarity” in the name of our faith and choose an imam like Siraj Wahhaj who I saw with my own eyes in 1995 seditiously say it his duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the US Constitution with the Quran- then we need to speak up!
Their jummah (group) prayer is supposedly against the Patriot Act, the NYPD, and Islamophobia and is actually NOT about our democracy but about empowering their Islamist and MB (Muslim Brotherhood) sympathetic groups into the very fabric of the political system so that Americans become anesthetized. We need American Muslims to speak up and marginalize these radicals. The DNC needs to understand and reject them because of their radical history and ideas.

Survey: Democrats More Racist Than Republicans
Alex over at Marginal Revolution shows that Republicans and Democrats are just about equally racist. Which is odd, because I'm constantly hearing from just about all the powers that be that Republicans have the market on racism cornered.
But as Maetenloch points out, just about equally racist isn't the same thing as equally racist.
It turns out, Democrats are slightly more racist than Republicans.
Some people may not vote for Barack Obama because he's black just as some won't vote for Mitt Romney because he's Mormon. Bigots, like the poor, will always be with us.
But let us put to rest the myth that Democrats are somehow more enlightened than Republicans on race issues. And then let these statistics assuage the guilt of over educated suburbanites who are thinking they might not vote for Obama this time around but don't dare say it aloud for fear of being thought a bumpkin who has a Klan outfit in hidden in the back of the closet.
Also, I'm banning myself for being a racist.

‘Auschwitz-Like Conditions’: U.S. General Accused of Massive Afghan Cover-Up to Protect Obama During Election Year
(The Blaze/AP) — US military officers accused one of the highest-ranking US commanders in Afghanistan, Lieutenant General William Caldwell, of trying to cover up a horrifying scandal at a taxpayer-funded hospital in Kabul to limit bad news in an election year, the AFP reports.Kenny Solomon has more on this
Colonel Mark Fassl, who testified Tuesday, said he was shocked when Lt. Gen. William Caldwell cited the then-upcoming 2010 congressional elections as the reason not to investigate the hospital.
The general reportedly said at the time: “How could we … make this request with elections coming? He calls me Bill.”
Col. Fassl said he believed the “he” in that statement was a reference to President Obama.
Two retired colonels who worked with the training command also told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that Caldwell did not want an investigation of the Dawood National Military Hospital, and one described the building as having “Auschwitz-like conditions.”
U.S. taxpayers spent more than $150 million on the hospital in just 18 months, according to CNN

Retarded Quote of the Day by Jan Schakowski
But can you just imagine if those who were holding guns legally in that theater stood up...Jan there was no one legally armed in the theater. While Colorado has a concealed carry law, the theater banned weapons from its premises. Concealed carry in a place of business that bans it is unlawful. So your contention that there were people legally holding weapons in the theater is false.
and started shooting at this shooter and we would have had a real shoot-out at the neighborhood theater..So the only thing worse than an unarmed group of defenseless people being slaughtered would be a smattering of armed people with the ability to return fire to slow down or even stop the Aurora shooter. My God what if Mr. Holmes would have been killed or something?
So well at least we know who's side Ms. Schakowski's on. The murderer's side.

Obama V. Clinton On Taxes
Thanks to Dick Morris for putting this up. I think it makes a strong argument that President Obama is being deceptive when he talks about Clinton tax rates.
Dick Morris:President Obama is trying to re-write history when he says that his tax program is the same as Bill Clinton supported “when 23 million jobs were created.”Read the rest.
It’s not that way at all. Clinton’s 1993 increase of personal income taxes on the top bracket to 39.6% had a very negative effect on the economy. It was only after Clinton’s 1997 cut the capital gains tax – the opposite of what Obama proposes – that job growth really piled up.
...Clinton suddenly saw the error of his ways and began to hold down spending and push for a tax cut. In 1997, he and the Republican Congress combined to cut capital gains taxes from 28% (the rate to which Bush had increased it) to 20%. The result was electrifying! Real wage growth was 6.5% in the four years after the tax cut compared to minuscule wage growth of 0.8% over the four years after Clinton’s tax increase!

Florida Dem & Close DNC Ally Of Debbie Wasserman Schultz Goes On Anti-Israel Tirade Accuses Jewish State Of Running Mass Concentration Prison Camps...…
Update: The spin begins, Evelyn Garcia[BizPacReview] has resigned from her position at the DNC, but, she will NOT give up her campaign to run for state rep.
She's horrible,” said Dan Liftman, legislative aide to U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings[aka Corruptocrat], D-Miramar. “She could harm the president and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.”More from the Palm Beach Post
Though Liftman said he’s known about the emails “for a while,” Palm Beach County Democratic Chairman Mark Alan Siegel told BPR he saw the emails for the first time Monday morning.[Sure Chair Siegel, sure...ed]
...County Democratic Party Chairman Mark Alan Siegel accepted Garcia’s resignation Monday afternoon. He called the emails “grossly inappropriate.”[...]Nice spin you have there Garcia. One would think she would thank the Jewish State for the aid they gave Haiti after the 2010 devastating earthquake. IDF set up search and rescue operations as well as having the first fully equipped field hospital.
Garcia, a Haitian-American, was elected to the Democratic National Committee in 2008, after serving as a delegate to the party’s national convention in Denver earlier that year.
She issued a resignation statement Friday afternoon, saying that’s she wrote it “with great sadness and a heavy heart.” She said the private emails had been released “by someone I believed was my friend.”
“In passionately advocating my position supporting the rights of people I felt were being harmed, I used language that I now regret,” she wrote. “The gist of the conversation had to do with my concern for innocent people being oppressed, but such support for the oppressed does not diminish my support for the good people of Israel.”

The person who has released these emails should be commended: " When I heard this person was running for office, I felt the public should know about the emails."
Local Democrats are in an uproar about a series of emails about Israel, sent last year by one of their representatives to the Democratic National Committee, and a candidate for state representative.I wonder how Debbie Wasserman Schultz and others are gonna spin this one.
In the emails, Evelyn Garcia, one of Palm Beach County's representatives to the DNC, a Democratic Executive Committee member, and a candidate for State House, District 88, accuses Israel of "crimes against humanity" and of running "mass concentration prison camps".
The email exchange began with Garcia forwarding an email by Code Pink, "Time for a New Middle East Policy," which announced a conference opposing President Obama's pandering to the, "pro-occupation lobby."

North Carolina Democrat Party (NCDP) Considers Anti-Israel Resolution
Which would "criticize Israel for it's occupation of Palestine"
Via Pirates Cove
(Daily Caller) The North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP) is seriously considering passing a resolution that would criticize Israel for its “illegal occupation” of Palestine, the latest in a long line of controversial moves coming out of one of the major battleground states President Barack Obama’s team is banking on to win re-election.So, is it safe to say @NCDP is part of the Free Free Palestine/Pro Hamas/BDS/Islamists Useful Idiots group?
The resolution didn’t pass at this weekend’s NCDP state convention, but was tabled and referred to the executive committee for further consideration later. It attacks the United States for providing Israel with “$3 billion annually in military aid,” while the “Israeli occupation, disenfranchisement and impoverishment of significant numbers of the Palestinian population, and Israel’s overwhelming military might and its role as the only nuclear power threaten stability in a region witnessing increased demands for democracy and an end to autocratic rule.”
If this passes:
It would also, if passed, mean the NCDP would advocate its congressional delegation bring “all parties, including Hamas, to the table to negotiate an end to the Israeli Occupation and a secure peace based on the 1967 borders,” among other things.Remember Obama and the 1967 border thingy? Yes, he went there.

Eric, Nation of Cowards, Holder Testifies Before Senate Judiciary Committee
Listen live via C-SPAN here.
Holder tried to filibuster and Sen Cornyn wouldn't have any of that. No problem, Chairman Senator Leahy came to Holder's defense and ended the "heat on Holder" from Sen Cornyn
Amen to that.
