Is Hillary’s Blood Clog the Result of Severe Injuries Suffered in a Plane Crash?

US Army C-12 Huron for FS9 | Microsimulation | Scoop.itWas Hillary injured while on a top-secret mission to Iran three weeks ago?

I, for one, have found the stories coming out about Hillary’s stomach flu, fall, concussion, and now the blood clot to be suspiciously odd and contrived. Now it seems there may be a good reason why.

The European Union Times, The Economic Policy Journal, and numerous sources outside the MSM (no shock here) are reporting that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suffered severe injuries in a military plane that crash landed three weeks ago!

What is the truth? Without a group of genuine investigative journalists in the MSM, who knows. At this point all we can do is pose the question. The only thing we know for sure is that Hillary hasn’t been seen for three weeks. Somehow none of this feels right.

Clinton Injured, US Navy Seal Killed In Secret US Mission To Iran?

A new Foreign Military Intelligence (GRU) report circulating in the Kremlin today is saying that United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was injured, and a top US Navy Seal Commander killed when their C-12 Huron military passenger and transport aircraft crash landed nearly 3 weeks ago in the Iranian city of Ahvaz near the Iraqi border.

This GRU report, however, states that US military flight logs recorded by Russian air and space forces confirm that Commander Price, and other members of US Navy Seal Team 4, left their base in Urozgan Province, Afghanistan on a flight to US Naval Support Activity Bahrain where they met up with Secretary Clinton and all of them transferred to the C-12 Huron that began a flight path to Baghdad, Iraq.

Within minutes of leaving Bahrain airspace, this report says, the C-12 Huron carrying Secretary Clinton and her US Navy Seal protectors, “without notice,” deviated from their assigned flight path heading, instead, directly towards Iran’s Ahwaz International Airport where, coincidentally, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had previously landed on an “unscheduled” visit.

Important to note, GRU analysts say in this report, was that when the C-12 Huron entered into Iranian airspace neither American nor Iran air force units responded clearly indicating that this secret mission was sanctioned.
Upon the C-12 Huron landing at Ahwaz, however, this report says it encountered “extreme turbulence” causing it to leave the runway where its main landing gear then collapsed causing it to crash.

Within seconds of the C-12 Huron crashing, this report continues, Iranian emergency and security personal responded freeing the victims, including Secretary Clinton who was reportedly unconscious and “bleeding profusely.”
After emergency aid was given, GRU agents stationed in Iran state that another US military flight was dispatched from Bahrain to Ahwaz which evacuated all of those wounded and killed in the crash including Secretary Clinton.

Christine O’Donnell walks out of CNN Piers Morgan interview & he’s shocked! Really?

(CNN)Christine O’Donnell, former Delaware GOP Senate candidate, walked off the set of CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” Wednesday when asked about her views on sexual abstinence and gay marriage.

“I’m not talking about policies. I’m not running for office,” O’Donnell said. “Ask Michele Bachmann what she thinks.”

I watched the interview and watched as Piers (I’m going to be a smartass) Morgan tried his best to make Christine O’Donnell look like retard and an idiot.

She walked off the interview? GOOD, he deserved it!  Morgan did not treat her with respect, in fact, he was hard pressed not to show he glee asking her questions about her feelings about masturbation, gay marriage, and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

Piers gleefully asking Christine her thoughts on masturbation!

The only reason Morgan didn’t bring up the equally superfluous witchcraft statement on Maher’s show from 1999 is because she gathered her dignity about her and left.

It was that damn smirk on his face that got to me. Ah, but let’s face it CNN’s talking heads have never found a conservative woman or Tea Party supporter it didn’t try to belittle or besmirch.

The shame in all of this is that O’Donnell’s new book, Troublemaker discusses some interesting issues including how the GOP, Karl Rove in particular, helped deep six her Delaware campaign for Senate in 2010.

The mistake Rove made was  to expose the fact that the truth is there is little difference between the Establishment Right and the Establishment Left. In an election where the possibility of gaining control of the Senate as well as the House was a real possibility his support should have been fully behind O’Donnell.

Instead he backed the Democrat in Delaware and the end result is the country is stuck with Reid and the Obama Progressives. Nice job Karl!


Well, excuse me for not getting all hot ‘n bothered about Allen West’s comments on Debbie Wasserman-Schultz

Congressman Allen West is right about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. She is despicable, a flame thrower. She lies so often and so easily that Michelle Malkin opined that she’s Alan Grayson in heels and Grayson was as big an ass as they come!

Forgive me for not jumping to her defense in the dust up between her and West , but alas, I cannot. It is worth noting how whining cowardly Bill Maher hateful, bitter, misogynist of all Conservative women in politics (particularly Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman) gets a pass and West gets jumped on for calling Wasserman-Schultz unprofessional (she is), and a coward (right again!).

Bill Maher whining sexist and misogynist of Conservative women with power.

In my humble opinion when one woman is unfairly attacked all women are hurt.  Unless and until, NOW and women everywhere, REGARDLESS OF POLITICAL AFFILIATION start calling out the hate speech of liberal/progressive lefties Ms. Wasserman-Schultz can stand in the quagmire of her own making!

Hate speech, is hate speech whether is comes from the right or the left. It shouldn’t be tolerated PERIOD!  If Democratic women cannot defend conservative/Republican women when cruelly attacked they shouldn’t expect sympathy from me.


So, Ms. Wasserman-Schultz, as Steve Martin used to say, “Well, excuse me!”



We have definitely found ourselves on the other side of the looking glass. The New York Times and the Washington Post, aka the Tweedledum and Tweedledee of the journalism, have issued nearly identical press releases asking for 100 people to help them “analyze” the 24,000 Palin e-mails that Alaska will be releasing on Friday.

What do you mean we're not journalists?

It is an act of yellow journalism unparalleled in the 21st century.  These tabloid rags are mining for dirt on a woman who isn’t running for president and isn’t even a candidate for office.

The newspaper that the great Kathrine Graham once headed has made the National Enquirer look good. Her newspaper went after President Nixon and oversaw the Watergate coverage that eventually to his resignation.

Fast forward to today, where we have a fraud with multiple social security numbers sitting in the White House.  Instead of searching for the truth about Obama and his eligibility, his wholesale destruction of the economy, bringing us into a third war in Libya, these papers are instead focused on their Palin Derangement Syndrome. This is sad and disgusting; and they wonder why readership is down!

This is from the Washed-Up Post:

Over 24,000 e-mail messages to and from former Alaska governor Sarah Palin during her tenure as Alaska’s governor will be released Friday. That’s a lot of e-mail for us to review so we’re looking for some help from Fix readers to analyze, contextualize, and research those e-mails right alongside Post reporters over the days following the release.

We are limiting this to just 100 spots for people who will work collaboratively in small teams to surface the most important information from the e-mails. Participants can join from anywhere with a computer and an Internet connection.

If you need inspiration before getting started, take a look at what to expect from the e-mail drop. For micro-updates as tomorrow unfolds, check out our new Twitter feed.

This is from the NY Times:

On Friday, the State of Alaska will release more than 24,000 of Sarah Palin’s e-mails covering much of her tenure as governor of Alaska. Times reporters will be in Juneau, the state capital, to begin the process of reviewing the e-mails, which we will be posting on starting on Friday afternoon.

We’re asking readers to help us identify interesting and newsworthy e-mails, people and events that we may want to highlight. Interested users can fill out a simple form to describe the nature of the e-mail, and provide a name and e-mail address so we’ll know who should get the credit. Join us here on Friday afternoon and into the weekend to participate.

Now here’s the best part. Go to the comments of both papers and read what people are saying. Many, many of the comments are negative.  There are some really good ones that pull no punches.  Here are a few examples before they are scrubbed.

From the WaPo:

That sucking sound you hear is WaPo slipping down below the National Enquirer in quality and integrity.

That cracking sound in the background is the last remnant of the Washington Post’s integrity falling to the ground.

wow! not since the 1930s in Nazi Germany has there been such evidence of mass psychosis ..

One-Think, One-Speak partisan lap-dogs.

You’d think this was the release of the Pentagon Papers.

And these are from the Times:

Jesus, is this what it’s come to? E-lynch mobs combing through data to use to as “gotcha” material?

I don’t remember the NY Times asking the public to go through then Senator Obama’s emails to find newsworthy materials…

Astonishing to see how low the lamestream (aka state run) media have sunk. This is nothing more than juvenile junior high clique style gossip and defamation of character. It is hilarious to watch you all jump out of your skin when Sarah says, “BOO!”
No honor or pride left in the journalism business, eh? The professionalism went a long time ago.

Both the Times and the Washington Post are sending out identical notices of recruitment!! What is this journalistic ploy? How many staffers do you plan to let go to cover this assignment with “just plain folks”? Well, I guess the Progressive “investigators” can do as well. Does Obama get to add the “volunteers” to his job creation tally?

This is pathetic and quite creepy

That last quote sums it all up, doesn’t it?


Abortion Doc Admits Being a Baby Killer

Abortion is the ultimate act of selfishness, particularly in a civilized society where there are so many other choices open to women besides purposefully snuffing out the life of an unborn. The truth is, many women never “get over it” and regret their decision to take (what seemed at the time) to be the easy way out.

Some are haunted by voices of their unborn. Some are so self-absorbed that they never consider the hideous nature of their decision to choose lifestyle over life… to rid themselves of this “sudden inconvenience” like an old pair of shoes.

Abortion is an emotionally charged topic that I have written about here and elsewhere.

My position about abortion has changed over the years, partly because of our ability to keep a fetus alive outside the womb as early as 22-24 weeks!

Now watch this Doctor’s admissions and ask yourself why we continue down this path? (H/T Mitchell Langbert’s Blog)

Let’s face it we all know someone who has had an abortion whether it’s someone in our immediate family, someone in our group of friends or associates,or someone that is as casual acquaintance.

My college room mate had an abortion. I remember the trauma surrounding her decision just before abortion became legal. I have one friend whose husband demanded she abort their child. She did and she never forgave him or herself. They divorced three years later.

Yet another friend years older than myself was very vocal about having gone through the late in life birth of a Down Syndrome baby… she wasn’t bitter. She was saddened by the multitude of hardships this 5th child placed on the rest of her family. She was also very upfront stating that if she had had a choice she would have had an abortion.

Aborting (what amounts to) a few cells that would fit in a petri dish in the first week or two of a pregnancy is one thing. It is something all together different when we are talking about a late term abortion of a fully formed fetus capable of living outside the womb. How is this not murder?

Let’s look at what we’re talking about before we toss “it” out without a second thought.

So where am I on this issue?

Abortion should be safe and legal, but RARE, but NEVER in the third trimester except in the most extreme circumstances. Instances of rape and incest make this a very difficult choice for the woman or girl involved. As a Catholic, it is difficult for me to condemn a new life because of the sins of a man of no conscious.

With all of that said, sadly it has become all too easy for women to abort their children because it interferes with their life style choices as the stats below demonstrate.

On average, women give at least three reasons for choosing abortion: three-fourths say that having a baby would interfere with work, school, or other responsibilities; about two-thirds say they cannot afford a child; and half say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner.

ATLANTA, GA , October 12, 2010 –

In a stealth move no professional pol saw coming, the camps of Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin have come together to announce the first all women’s ticket to run for the White House and the offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America.

The announcement came as a shock, stunning Washington insiders of every political stripe.  When told, many were simply dumb founded and speechless.

The sounds of people fainting and hitting floor along with  numerous heads exploding  and ricocheting can only be described as deafening.

In secrecy reminiscent of our planned attack on Normandy, France during WWII, both political camps have been quietly moving forward in their efforts to run in a manner that is sure to change the face of politics in this country for decades to come.

Only a handful of people, including  First Husbands Bill Clinton and Todd Palin, knew of this historic political alliance between Hillary and Sarah.

The delicate work of integrating both political camps has already begun.  Former press secretary to President Bill Clinton, Dee Dee Meyers, along with many other Progressives who supported Barack Obama in ’08  instead of Hillary, will definitely not be part of this historic run for the White House!

Saving the biggest political surprise for last, Hillary Clinton announced that the Clinton/Palin ticket will run as independents.  They will not be affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican parties.

While both women have staked out different positions on a myriad of issues, they share a commonality of purpose  for this country.  Both are determined to demolish the so-called glass ceiling which has prevented women from holding the highest office in this country.

They also expressed their eagerness to help the U.S. get its people back to work, to reduce the deficit, and to see the useless schmuck currently in the White House is kicked out of office.

When asked to comment on what he thought President Obama is likely to think about facing a Clinton/Palin ticket, former President Bill Clinton winked and said, “Pay back’s a bitch!”


On average, women give at least three reasons for choosing abortion: three-fourths say that having a baby would interfere with work, school, or other responsibilities; about two-thirds say they cannot afford a child; and half say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner.

This thought has gripped me for the last several days.  Here in the midst of one of Christianity’s most holy holiday seasons, this question will not leave my consciousness.

Forget for a moment that the time of year Jesus was born was more likely March or April (shepherds tend their flocks at night during the spring and keep them sheltered inside during the winter months) or the timing and relationship of our celebration of His birth which just happens to coincide with the Winter Solstice and pagan celebrations.  If one believes in His birth and resurrection, taken in the context of the right to choose verses the right to life movements, this question resonates.Mary & Jesus Stained Glass

I found it to be particularly poignant given the Christmas Eve vote on heath care that the Democrats rammed through, despite the fact that most Americans hate the bill and do not want the government to control heath care.

This is a bill that contains exclusions for 13 states, goodies for a host of legislators lacking even a speck of integrity.  There was Senator Reid celebrating … joyous at the “gift” we were just handed from a group of whores that calls corruption compromise and that continues to insist that this is way “things are done in Washington”… justification for legislation that is indefensible by any measure.

Lurking out there is abortion funding and how the Congressional sleezoids will try to insert it in the final bill.  Progressives & radical Democrats are adamant … support for abortions must be funded with our tax dollars; which brings me back to Mary and her child Jesus.

What if Mary’s choice was to abort her son?  After all what could be more inconvenient for a young 14 or 15 year old Jewish girl than becoming pregnant out of wedlock in Jewish society of the 1st century?  She could have been stoned to death for this pregnancy … a fate that is still melded out in certain societies in the 21st Century.

Absent rape or incest, if a couple decides to have unprotected sex (which is their choice knowing full well that a baby could be the end result), why should the life that has been created be tossed aside?  If one believes that all life is precious, how does one reconcile abortion and the ultimate destruction of new life?   Choices, good or bad ones, always have consequences and convenience shouldn’t be the deciding factor … unless your father is Barack Obama.

Obama is on record as saying if his one of his daughters became pregnant he wouldn’t want their “mistake to follow them the rest of their lives.  As an Illinois legislator Obama also had no problem with funding that allowed third trimester abortions!

This is the same mindset that allows life that can be disposed of so easily at the beginning can also be disposed of, if need be, at the end.  Just ration or withhold health care for those deemed to have already lived too long!

Aborting a few cells during the first weeks of a pregnancy is one thing.  Aborting a life capable of surviving outside the womb during the third trimester is nothing short of murder.  Don’t like the word murder?  Tough! Is there a prettier word for this barbaric act?  Tell me what politically correct word fits?

Yes, but doesn’t every woman have a right to choose what happens to her body?  The answer is yes … and no.  Might I opine that it has always been that way?  Life and death issues are rarely simple …  they are usually multi-layered and complex.

Ultimately there are only two kinds of acts in life, those that are selfish and those that are selfless.  Mary’s decision to bring her son into this world was selfless. Sarah Palin’s decision to have Trig knowing that he would be a Down’s syndrome baby was selfless, particularly since 90% of these babies are aborted after amino synthesis accurately predicts this condition.

Before any moron goes on a tirade and decides I am comparing Mary and Sarah Palin, don’t bother, I’m not.  The point of comparison was selfless acts not the women who chose to behave in this manner. Girls and women who find themselves with an unwanted pregnancy and yet choose to carry their babies to full term (sometimes defying the men in their lives who would sooner dispose of the life they helped create) are behaving in a selfless way.

Their choices may include adoption, sacrifice, and for some this means financial struggle … yet they choose the life of the child within over the destruction of a life that might grow and change the world.  These are women whose decisions are courageous, that fly in the face of pressures from the outside world that emphasizes that life is cheap, that scream, “You’ll get over it” … move on!

All of which brings us to today and the picture below which I first viewed on Afrocity in August.  It is a devastating indictment on those so called Progressives in Congress and elsewhere who preach that every woman has a right to terminate her pregnancy regardless of the consequences or circumstances.  If the life within is inconvenient, dispose of it post haste.  Rock on and let’s party!

Abortion is the ultimate act of selfness, particularly in a civilized society where there are so many other choices open to women besides purposefully snuffing out the life of an unborn.  The truth is, that many women never “get over it” and regret their decision to take (what seemed at the time) to be the easy way out.  Some are haunted by voices of their unborn.  Some are so self-absorbed that they never consider the hideous nature of their decision to choose lifestyle over life … to rid themselves of this “sudden inconvenience” like an old pair of shoes.

Do I want to return to the time of back room abortions with wire hangers, women dying because of infections brought about by unsanitary conditions or being butchered by an uncaring abortionist?  No, of course not, there are times when abortion is the only alternative.  Saving the life of a mother has to be of paramount consideration when medical complications arise.

But let’s be clear when we talk about a woman’s right to choose we don’t have to look very far to see where the consequences of this mindset can lead to and the public policies that it can foster. We already suffer other societies that use abortion as a form of population control … where the life of a male baby is valued over the life of a female baby so female babies are destroyed.  Need I go further?

In this most holy season let us rejoice in the miracle of the birth of Jesus, let us be thankful that this young Jewish girl, Mary, had the strength, grace, and selfless courage to trust that her son would grow strong and ultimately change the world. Let us pray that more women in this country choose the life of the unborn inside them over desecration & despair.


I have been watching the hatred being spewed against Sarah Palin by the lame stream media and the Palin haters with absolute fascination. Going Rogue is making them go crazy!

One can almost hear their tiny brains going, “we’re so great and she is so not us! How is this possible?


Nixon had an enemies list, maybe we should start a Palin haters list. The list of haters is diverse and in some ways surprising; and they all have one thing in common … a belief that they are of superior intelligence and education (not!) and they possess superior insight into life (ya, sure!).

They are so insightful that they never miss a chance to take a swipe at mid-America and the middle class. Like Palin? You must be part of the great unwashed and an Obama hater.  Like Obama?  Ah yes, you are one of us … one the elitists who know what is best for our new Socialist America.

Personally, I’ve always thought that this kind of behavior is a demonstration of how inferior these people feel about themselves way deep down inside. If you are really secure in yourself and your thought processes, why the need to continually tear down someone else?

I heard Martha Stewart call Palin “dangerous” yesterday. Dangerous? Really? Martha, I’ve been a fan for a very long time, but may I say for the record, that if you really believe Sarah Palin is dangerous when we have an ineligible man fraudulently holding the office of POTUS while devastating this economy, then you madame are a horse’s ass.

Ah, but I digress …back to Tina (I’m the Beast) Brown of the Daily Beast. Seems that Obama’s favorability ratings and Palin’s favorability ratings are meeting in the middle.  No lesser source than the LA Times opined this morning that:

Sarah Palin vs. Barack Obama: The approval gap silently shrinks to a few points

November 23, 2009 |  1:32 am

Not that it matters politically because obviously she’s a female Republican dunce and he’s obviously a male Democratic genius.

Virginia line for Sarah Palin Going Rogue Book buyers

But Sarah Palin’s poll numbers are strengthening.

And President Obama’s are sliding.

Guess what? They’re about to meet in the 40s.

Depending, of course, on which recent set of numbers you peruse and how the questions are phrased, 307 days into his allotted 1,461 the 44th president’s approval rating among Americans has slid to 49% or 48%, showing no popularity bounce from his many happy trips, foreign and domestic.

Riding the wave of immense publicity and symbiotic media interest over her new book, “Going Rogue,” and the accompanying promotional tour, Palin’s favorable ratings are now at 43%, according to ABC. That’s up from 40% in July.

One poll even gives her a 47% favorable. ( LOL…Imagine that!)

As his numbers go into the tank, hers are going upward, much to consternation and jealousy of Ms. Brown.  According to Rasmussen Reports less than 50% of America have confidence in Fauxbama and his failed policies.

It was during the discussion of these new poll numbers on MSNBC (the Palin Haters Network) that Ms. Brown shared with the audience how ignorant she thought Sarah Palin was, never thinking for even a nanosecond that this comment made her sound shallow and ignorant.

Of course, as the ignorant Ms. Brown demonstrated her profound Obama bias, she again strengthened all those who believe Sarah is a breathe of fresh air in the polluted  halls of Congress.

Tina, you need to continue insulting us all … it makes us  … the millions who support her, so much stronger while making the Obamabots increasingly irrelevant.  You go girl!


TVNEWSER is reporting that Barbara WaWa is going to air a 5-part interview with our girl Sarah.

My only comments are as follows … do you think we can trust Barbara to actually give Sarah an honest interview or will the final product be another hatchet job ala Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric?

If ABC doesn’t treat Palin fairly this time, you can bet this will be the final nail in the coffin for that network.

Barbara Walters Sits Down with Sarah Palin for 5-Part Interview

By Chris Ariens on Nov 04, 2009 12:30 PM


ABC’s Barbara Walters will sit down with former Vice Presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for a five-part interview series later this month.

The interview, timed to coincide with the release of “Going Rogue: An American Life,” begins airing on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, Nov. 17. Portions will also air that week on “Nightline” and on “20/20” Friday, Nov. 20.

We’re told the interview will take place both before and after Palin’s sit-down with Oprah Winfrey on Nov. 16.

It was Walters’ ABC colleague Charlie Gibson who got the first sit-down with Palin after she was chosen as John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election.


I cannot let Ted Kennedy’s passing go without comment.

For the past 48 hours we have witnessed both extremes in the media coverage of this man’s life.  One extreme has been the adoring, fawning, excesses of MSNBC et al … worshiping him a liberal lion while the other extreme has concentrated on his many personal excesses defining him as a lowlife.

Listening to Chris Matthews wax poetic about Teddy yesterday I wondered if I could control my gag reflex.  I was also thinking how curious that Matthews has excused Teddy of every misstep and indiscretion while at the same time crucifying Bill Clinton.  Whatever Bill Clinton did in office, his dumb ass escapades with Monica never reached the  scale and magnitude of Teddy’s actions during the summer of 1969.


I have been a Kennedy Democrat most of my life. That means a JFK Democrat whose government policies were fiscally conservative and reasonable. Ted Kennedy and the Democratic Party of today is now despised by me.  Its policies and practices, as applied by Pelosi, Reid, and Obama, are anathema to my very core.

The truth, as I have witnessed it … as aYankee originally from New England … as one who loved the Kennedy family of folklore and fame,  is that Teddy sure as hell was no saint.  He was a man whose personal sins were far greater than most. He was a heavy drinker and a womanizer. I understand the pain and multiple losses in his life, but these losses cannot excuse his own destructive behavior.

I  remember the day I heard about Chappaquiddick. I was living on the Cape at the at the time.  Funny how I remember the time and place.  I was sitting on a Falmouth beach … it was around noon when the news came over the radio.  We were all stunned.  What other word is there to describe the accident and Teddy’s actions, that allowed Mary Jo Kopechne to die in that over turned vehicle in seven feet of water?

Before leaving the Cape that summer I visited the accident/crime site with friends and looked at bridge and water where the car entered.  I remember wondering how could Teddy have mistaken the road that lead to the wooden bridge and that the surrounding area seemed smaller than I have envisioned.

As always, we saw that being a member of the Kennedy clan means never having to say I’m sorry.

Did Ted Kennedy accomplish some great things while in the Senate?  An honest answer is yes.  Of all of his legislative accomplishments I have the greatest respect for Title IX. It remains a legislative accomplishment that has probably done more to bring equality for girls and women  than any other piece of legislation save the Equal Credit Opportunity Act of the 1976.  People forget that until that act was passed it was virtually impossible for a married woman (any woman)  to establish credit in her own name!

Which leads me to today and Teddy’s last “great act “for America … knowingly endorsing Barack Hussein Obama, a man clearly ineligible to serve as the President.  Yes, this last great act was to purposely bypass a key clause in the Constitution thereby establishing a precedent that might allow “The Arnold” to run for office. I’ve written about this before see here and here.

There have been numerous attempts over the years, beginning in the 60’s,  by Democrats and Republicans alike to bypass the natural born citizen clause of the Constitution.  There are many who, believing they possess superior intellect and vision about America’s future, feel that anyone, even a naturalized citizen having lived here for a mere 20 years should be eligible to run for office.

When one examines this position, it becomes abundantly clear that it is intellectually bankrupt and illogical, and worse still  is dangerous for the safety and security of our country  to allow people who not natural born citizens to hold the singularly most important position in the world.  This is not xenophobic it is common sense.  Think Russia would allow an American to become naturalized, live in their country for 20 years, and then run for the top office in their country?

And so, Teddy’s last great act was to knowingly ignore the Constitution and  help a man whose British citizenship at the time of his birth clearly made him ineligible for run and hold  the office of President without committing fraud against the American people and this country’s electoral process.

I am measuring which legacy is worse, Mary Jo Kopechne’s death or the intentional desecration  of our  Constitution … of placing the welfare of one man ahead of 300 million citizens.
