THIS CHARMING SOUTHERN GENT IS A FIGHTER FOR FREEDOM, THE TRUTH, AND THE CONSTITUTION
by Sharon Rondeau…
MRS. RONDEAU: Why did you start your blog?
MR. WELLS: I started out with a strong math/science background and never had any inclination to write when I was younger. Then, over my business career, I got better at it, better at communicating. And I always loved literature but never felt any need to write. So over a period of time I felt as if, increasingly, I wanted to write something. That was one thing working in the background. But in January of 2008, in my day-to-day activities, just talking with my friends and watching what was going on, I knew that I wanted to be more involved in the election cycle. That was clear. I had more time; my kids were grown and I had fewer responsibilities. But then, the other part was that Obama was gaining in prominence and I knew almost nothing about him. So I decided, “This is a good opportunity.”
So I read a story which I thought was preposterous, and I thought, “I’m going to dig and do some research.” Within approximately two days of doing that research, I knew that we had a problem. And I’m talking about digging deep. I have a background in using the internet and researching, and I was so concerned within the first several weeks, it affected my sleep. And I’m talking about the whole big picture about Obama, his background, Chicago corruption, and right on down the line. And then very quickly, when I started asking questions on the internet, I got attacked for it. And I’m talking about something very benign such as “Where was Obama in November of 1999?” and I was amazed.
Then I started following the Larry Sinclair story, and I quickly realized, “Wait a minute. This is not just about his allegation; this is about attacks, death threats, internet scrubbing, misinformation. If you go back to my early articles, you’ll see that after giving him the benefit of the doubt early on, soon I began noticing that we were getting into a new age reminiscent of Nazi Germany and very much like “1984.” I have a hard copy of “1984″ which I have read and reread, and in my early articles, you will see, and others echoed my feelings, we are getting into the age of Big Brother quickly. Now we have firm evidence recently with Google modifying the search engine results which WorldNetDaily reported, and I reported…it is scary. So we are living in the age of Big Brother, I think.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think this started before the presidential primaries and Obama entered the picture?
MR. WELLS: Yes. Revisionist history: we all started noticing things. School textbooks, for example, and that’s one of the things that is dear to my heart: kids and textbooks. I actually taught at the community college level many years ago full-time, computer science. We all started watching this play out. It’s like the frog in the pot of water which we all talk about: you turn up the heat little by little. We kind-of noticed it, stopped and paid attention, but we weren’t too concerned about it, and it happened ever so slowly. So, yes, absolutely. But it escalated almost exponentially. I do pay attention, and one of the things I noticed was that these weren’t just overzealous supporters necessarily; there were different groups. I started referring to the Obama camp as the big circle: paid bloggers, right on down the line. Much of this was orchestrated; it was readily apparent, and this was confirmed later on by the Obama campaign.
MRS. RONDEAU: Have they admitted that they have paid people to disseminate their information and viewpoint?
MR. WELLS: Yes, hundreds – and that’s what we know about, and God only knows what is going on behind that and the puppeteers pulling the strings. So you’ve got me wound up now, and God help you!
MRS. RONDEAU: This gives us a good foundation as to why you started the site.
MR. WELLS: Well, I care about this country. I have family, and I do; I really care. I grew up in a time of “Leave it to Beaver,” where people were good people. There was always corruption; there were bad politicians, but you felt as if you were safe because most of the politicians and most of government was looking out for your best interests.
MRS. RONDEAU: And not necessarily looking to take over your life.
MR. WELLS: Bingo. Thank you.
MRS. RONDEAU: How is it looking now?
MR. WELLS: It is scary. Most people don’t have a clue. One of my recent concerns is specifically the Blagojevich trial, Chicago connections and connection to Obama.
MRS. RONDEAU: Have you researched the Blagojevich trial on your own, or have you reported the news that is already out there on it?
MR. WELLS: Since in theory, everything is on the internet, that’s really where most of us do our work. I’ve had some contacts in Chicago that have reported to me behind the scenes. And of course, as you know, I covered the Larry Sinclair story more than anyone else, and I did it for these reasons: I was a skeptic at first. I approached it objectively, but I asked the questions; I was seeking the truth, and over a period of time, through asking those questions and digging behind the scenes, I got to know Larry Sinclair. But as I mentioned, it’s a much, much bigger story which gets into the internet scrubbing, the personal attacks, the death threats…I’ve had death threats against me; some have been reported to the FBI. That’s even another story.
MRS. RONDEAU: So you’ve spoken to Larry Sinclair personally?
MR. WELLS: Yes. It started out by my asking questions, and then after a month or so, we had some phone conversations. I wanted to find out what was going on, because by that time, I knew there was more to the story than met the eye. I was intensely curious, because I was experiencing people attacking me, and I had done nothing wrong. I simply asked some questions. So actually, I became involved more than I had planned. Once we got into this and I saw what was happening, I was not about to let those thugs silence Sinclair and keep the story from the American public. That’s how committed I was to it, and that’s exactly what they were trying to do.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think they succeeded in silencing the story?
MRS. WELLS: No, they have not, and all you have to do is look at The Globe, National Enquirer, and so forth, and the fact that the stories are still out on the internet. Fewer people back then were inclined to believe the story, admittedly, but quite frankly, at this point in time, Sinclair has far more credibility with me than Obama does. I say that without any hesitation whatsoever.
MRS. RONDEAU: That was going to be my next question. Do you believe that Larry’s story is factual?
MR. WELLS: I’m as close to 100% convinced as I can be without having been there. I can give you a snippet of detail. His story actually works; if you go back in time to 2007 when he first started talking about it, almost no one knew that Obama spoke at Northwestern University the day after, which meant he was in Chicago. A lot of people aren’t really connecting the dots because the capital is in Springfield. What really caught my attention first when I started digging, after reading the interviews from Tim Russert, The Chicago Sun-Times, The Chicago Tribune, and so forth, they all had the same character to them: Obama was hiding something.
When they asked about his Illinois Senate records, they got these baseless, nonsense responses, and that was interesting. I then went directly to the Illinois Senate records for November 4, 1999, the opening day of the fall session, and Obama was not present. And I thought, “Well, isn’t that interesting?” It wasn’t a smoking gun, but it was darn interesting. So over several months, I knew that Obama was not at the state capital on November 4. He was in Chicago on the 9th, I think, and very few people knew about it. It was not publicized; in fact, it had to be dug out of the recesses of the internet, so the odds were dramatically against Sinclair knowing that such that he could place Obama in Chicago the next morning. And then you throw in other little details. I reported earlier on the connections to Rezko and Levine.
MRS. RONDEAU: Who is Levine?
MR. WELLS: Stuart Levine was the key witness in the Tony Rezko trial. If he is not brought in to the Blagojevich trial, we know that we really have a problem in this country. In simple terms, Levine did the dirty work and was the primary witness at the Rezko trial. Rezko was the brains behind the corruption. In the transcripts of the Rezko trial, it was well-documented that Levine was heavily into drugs. This is another piece of the puzzle.
I believe that Obama’s book was written in such a manner as to pre-emptively defuse certain aspects of his life, the drug use being one of them. We know he has used drugs, and there’s other evidence of his using drugs, even some strong rumors, while at the White House. So the fact that he used drugs in 1999 or could have used drugs in 1999 I think is highly probable. Sinclair alleges it….
2010 Elections –
After months of staying mum, according to Fox News the White House is reportedly going address Joe Sestak’s claims that the Obama administration offered him a high-profile position if he would end his candidacy for the Senate seat held by Arlen Specter.
If these allegations prove true, it is a felony to bribe or entice a candidate to withdraw from a race and or interfere with an election process for federal office and someone is going to have to fall on the sword for Obama.
So who made the offer? Obama’s list of thugs and cronies is endless. Strategically the White House should address the issue as soon as possible, as we approach midterms the White House already has a plethora of situations working against them and faces another summer of discontent. …Continue Reading

Thank you Dr. Manning for all your efforts.
From Dr. James David Manning:
My Fellow Americans,
We have started the process of filing the guilty verdicts of The CIA Columbia Obama Sedition Trial with The New York State Board of Regents, The Middle States Accreditation Board, and The New York State Bar against Columbia University and Mr. Michael Sovern.
It is reasonable to expect court battles with each agency before they either remove accreditation or disbar.
We will call for a coalition to present the verdicts to The US Senate, The House of Representatives, The Joint Chiefs of Staff, and The Attorney General’s Office.
I am reviewing statutes and procedures for filing with federal agencies and will keep you posted as to when to meet me in Washington, D.C.
Just a thought: Would you be able to spend seven days in Washington with a seven day, seven times march around the Capitol building?
Please forward this announcement to as many people as possible.

Once again the BOPAC Administration is setting up Netanyahu for a photo op that will serve only Obama. I hope Prime Minister Netanyahu is bringing a food tester with him.
Posted by Israel Insider on May 26, 2010 at 8:00am
U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama has invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House next Tuesday, Israeli officials said yesterday. The visit to Washington is being added to the end of Netanyahu’s previously scheduled trip to Canada. Netanyahu will meet in Jerusalem with Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, on Wednesday, who is currently in Israel on vacation and is expected to bring the official invitation with him.
Haaretz, the first to break the story, reports that Israeli officials said that Obama wanted to meet with Netanyahu soon, before Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas arrives in Washington for his White House meeting in another few weeks, due to the crisis in relations between Israel and the U.S. and the substantial criticism Obama has taken over it, from congressmen and from American Jewish leaders.
The Israeli sources said that Washington wants to try to erase the memory of the last meeting between Obama and Netanyahu when the press was barred and the White House did not even release a joint photo of the two leaders. This treatment – contrasting with the warm and well-publicized meetings Obama had held with various Arab leaders who visited Washington – was widely viewed as a deliberate attempt to humiliate Netanyahu.
The White House feared the upcoming meeting with Abbas, intended to show Obama’s support for the Palestinian leader, would draw unfavorable comparisons with the disastrous March meeting with Netanyahu, thereby deepening the crisis with Israel, and sparking more criticism of Obama’s Israel policy. By holding a positive meeting with Netanyahu before Abbas arrives, the administration apparently hopes to deflect such comparisons….Continue Reading

Who In the MSM Will Stand Up For Michael Yon? (McChrystal banishes Michael Yon to Thailand!)

The best war journalist of our time has been kicked out of Afghanistan…
Let the administration boot Helen Thomas out of her seat in the front of a White House press conference and there would be outrage. Remove Jonathan Karl from the Capitol and media would revolt. Kick Andrea Kremer off Sunday Night Football and there would be pandemonium.
And yet nobody in the media seems to have much of a problem with Michael Yon being removed from the front lines by Obama/General McChrystal. Yon has openly stated the problems in Afghanistan right now and how we could lose this war, unless changes are made. He has been critical of the current rules of engagement that have put our troops in danger and could actually make this war like the Vietnam that the leftist media claimed it was early and often when Bush was president (it’s strange you don’t hear those comparisons from them anymore).
Yon’s reward? He’s lost his embed status, banished to Bangkok. …Continue Reading
Brothers and Sisters in the Military – When are you going to demand Obama establish that he is a Natural Born Citizen, eligible to serve as Commander In Chief?
If your Oath to protect the Constitution is not important today, why don’t we just change the military oath of allegiance to reflect our current level of commitment?
I, _______, do solemnly swear to protect ME and I will try to defend the Constitution as long as it doesn’t adversely impact the aforementioned ‘ME’.
Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.

But you may not know it until well into this web ad from the NRSC, their first entry in the suddenly-competitive Senate race in Connecticut. The ad is 70 seconds long, but the first 30 seconds is more or less a Hall of Shame for Democratic politicians over the last couple of years. Only at nearly the half-way mark does attention turn to Richard Blumenthal and his “during and not in” explanation of his serial fabulism regarding his military service and Vietnam:

In his book, Arthur C. Brooks sheds light on the reality of Americans’ political leanings. With 70 percent supporting free enterprise and opposing big government, why does the media give us the impression that conservatives are outside of the mainstream? Indeed, Brooks says, Newsmax, rather than Time, represents the mainstream.
