TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS — Hondurans voted for president on Sunday in a mostly peaceful election that Washington supported but most countries in the hemisphere rejected, saying it could whitewash a coup.
Porfirio “Pepe” Lobo, a well-to-do businessman, jumped out to an early lead with 52 to 55 percent of the vote, more than 10 percentage points ahead of another centrist candidate, Elvin Santos, according to exit polls and projections broadcast by Honduran radio and television. …Continue Reading

And free people spoke today and kicked Obama in the can and the Chavez backed Zelaya out. Another stunning blow for the insufferable commie President of the US.
In Elections, Honduras Defeats Chávez Wall Street Journal
Unless something monumental happens in the Western Hemisphere in the next 31 days, the big regional story for 2009 will be how tiny Honduras managed to beat back the colonial aspirations of its most powerful neighbors and .preserve its constitution.
Despite the nefarious and incomprehensible backing of Oblunder.
Yesterday’s elections for president and Congress, held as scheduled and without incident, were the crowning achievement of that struggle.
National Action Party candidate Porfirio Lobo was the favorite to win in pre-election polls. Yet the name of the victor is almost beside the point. The completion of these elections is a national triumph in itself and a win for all people who yearn for liberty.
The fact that the U.S. has said it will recognize their legitimacy shows that this reality eventually made its way to the White House. If not Hugo Chávez’s Waterloo, Honduras’s stand at least marks a major setback for the Venezuelan strongman’s expansionist agenda. …Continue Reading
More of Obama’s Socialist Past –
Is there any period in Obama’s past when he is not surrounded by Marxists, Socialists, Communists, or Anti-Semites?
Obama File 90 Alice Palmer Re-examined-Was Obama’s First Political Boss a Soviet “Agent of Influence”? Alice Palmer is a Chicago based academic, activist and former friend, employer and political ally of Barack Obama.
In the mid 1990s Alice Palmer, then an Illinois State Senator, employed Obama has her chief of staff, when she attempted an ill-fated run for the US Congress.
Obama was part of Friends of Alice Palmer, alongside controversial property developer Tony Rezko and Democratic Socialists of America members Danny Davis, Betty Wilhoitte and Timuel Black-also a member of Committees of Correspondence).
Later Palmer introduced Obama as designated successor to her Illinois State Senate seat, in the living room of former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, while DSA member, former communist and long time Obama friend Quentin Young looked on.
The Palmer/Obama relationship soured after Obama refused to step down when Palmer decided she wanted her State Senate seat back, after her Congressional bid failed.
Obama went on to win the seat unopposed, after he knocked Palmer and his other rivals off the ballot, by challenging the legitimacy of their nominating signatures.
Alice Palmer was the first rung of Obama’s ladder to power.
More seriously however-new evidence shows that Alice Palmer had high level connections behind the “Iron Curtain” and may have been a Soviet “agent of influence”-that is, a conduit of Soviet progaganda and policy, to the US and the “third world”….Continue Reading
Do you think that Obama will pardon these Navy Seals tomorrow night when he lays out his path to defeat in Afghanistan? I doubt it since none can aid Obama in his mission to blame President Bush for everything.

Court-martials for SEALs an absurdity
The pending court-martials of three Navy SEALs for allegedly failing to protect an apprehended terrorist believed responsible for the infamous execution-style slaughter of four American contractors in Fallujah, Iraq in 2004, is the height of politically correct nonsense.
The three men, Matthew McCabe, Jonathan Keefe and Julio Huertas, face charges of dereliction of duty and making false statements, while McCabe also faces an assault charge. According to media reports, the three SEALs were part of a team that apprehended Ahmed Hashim Abed on Sept. 3. Mr. Abed told authorities that while in detention he was assaulted, and showed investigators a bloody lip.
That’s right, a bloody lip.
Even if Mr. Abed’s accusation is true, which we doubt, the likely reaction from most Americans — so what? — is apt. Given the treatment of the four American contractors — Continue Reading
Navy Seals Deserve Medal – Not Charges –
Posted 11/30/2009 ET
Every year the New York Police and Fire Departments face off in an annual football game. The good-natured but intense contest has been a New York City tradition since 1973.
In 2004, members of both squads visited the Oval Office to present President George W. Bush with a token of appreciation for his response following the attacks of September 11, 2001. The meeting had special meaning since among the many casualties of 9-11 were 22 members of the New York City Fire Department Football Club. (See bravestfootball.com and nypdfootball.com). Originally, President Bush was asked to attend the annual game to receive the players’ thanks, but he was unable to do so, so I arranged the visit to the White House for the players.
The meeting was scheduled to last about ten minutes. At the president’s insistence, it lasted longer, in part so he could show the players another recent gift — something he was obviously proud to share with them. You see, that morning, the warriors who captured Saddam Hussein visited the president and gave him a glass-enclosed gun, the gun Hussein had on him when they dragged him from his rat hole.
The president picked up the box with the gun and showed it to the players. The president turned the box over and showed the signatures of the soldiers, who were involved in the capture, saying what a “great group” they were. Clearly, he was proud that our American GIs had captured a brutal tyrant, who took the lives of many. Our brave troops captured a terrorist, and our commander-in-chief honored their valor and service.
Now, less than six years later, let’s look at what has changed.
Just a few days ago, the “big news” was an inane circus starring two people who crashed a White House State Dinner. The stories, the photos, the calls for investigations, more funding, firings, in other words, the typical madness will all follow. Of course, few will thank publicly the men and women of the Secret Service, who keep so many so safe for so long.
While most of the major news outlets seemed totally taken with the gate crashers, few Americans were made aware of a mockery of justice that became public that same week, namely the prosecution of three brave Navy SEALS who face ruin for, among all things, capturing a terrorist who brutally killed, maimed, defiled and hanged four American citizens in Fallujah, Iraq in 2004….Continue Reading

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A group against bringing the self-professed mastermind of the September 11 attacks to trial in a U.S. civilian court will hold a rally in New York demanding Washington reconsider its decision, the group said on Tuesday.
The 9/11 Never Forget Coalition said it will hold a rally on December 5 at a park adjacent to the Manhattan federal courthouse where Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others will be tried just blocks from Ground Zero.
No date has been announced for the suspects’ transfer to New York or their first appearance in court.
Debra Burlingame, a co-founder of the group, said the trial gives Mohammed the opportunity to wage “jihad in the courtroom.” The group supports trying the men before a military tribunal.
