Yet at the same time the administration was engaged in this endeavor, the Department of Justice was refusing to provide critical witnesses and information in response to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights’ statutory investigation into DOJ’s enforcement of civil rights laws — with specific attention to the dismissal of the New Black Panther Party case (DOJ also has stiffed various members of Congress who are seeking similar information). This, despite the fact that DOJ has an obligation under 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1975b(e) to “cooperate fully” with the Commission’s investigation.
My grandson plays golf on his high school golf team. He shot himself a hole in one..

A teacher in a Detroit kindergarten class asked the kids what kind of sound a pig makes.
Little Benjamin stood up and yelled:
I guess there aren’t many
farms in Detroit …
JERUSALEM — A Palestinian gunman killed four Israelis — including a pregnant woman — in an attack Tuesday in the West Bank, the Israeli military said.
The shooting comes just a day ahead of a White House summit relaunching Mideast peace talks.
Police say the gunman opened fire at a vehicle near Hebron — a volatile city that has experienced heavy violence in the past.
There has been no claim of responsibility. But Israeli authorities are concerned that militants might try to sabotage the U.S.-led peace efforts with violence.
Obama just earned, another mohammed-atta boy from the Islamic world. Doing a fine job there obama! ‘I did this, but I blame Bush, Congress, BP, anyway’..
Absolutely Unacceptable, for this “right war”, Obama. If only you did NOT have a penchant for “enlightenment” of the Unenlightened. Why is that, Obama??
I could give two damns if Pakistan and Afghanistan were washed into the Indian Ocean. However, since our troops, as well as the coalitions are, there is a less difficult way to accomplish their being gone.
MEXICO CITY — Federal police on Monday captured a long-sought, alleged Texas-born gang kingpin who faces drug trafficking charges in the U.S. and has been blamed for a vicious turf war that has included bodies hung from bridges and shootouts in central Mexico.
In addition to the billions of dollars the Obama administration has set aside for various Islamic initiatives, the Associated Press notes that at least $6 million more of your tax dollars are being spent to restore mosques and minarets in the Muslim world this year:
WASHINGTON — The good will tour of the Middle East by the imam behind the proposed mosque near ground zero is just part of the U.S. government’s efforts to reach out to the Muslim world.
This year, the Obama administration will spend nearly $6 million to restore 63 historic and cultural sites, including mosques and minarets, in 55 nations, according to State Department documents.
Under a program established by Congress in 2001, the department will fund at least five projects in as many countries at a cost of more than $271,000.
The contributions include $76,135 for the 16th century Grand Mosque in Tongxin, China, and $67,500 for the 18th century Golden Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan. An additional $62,169 will be spent on restoring a 19th century minaret in Mauritania’s ancient city of Tichitt; $50,437 for the Sundarwala Burj, a 16th century Islamic Monument in New Delhi, and $15,450 to restore the 18th century Gobarau Minaret in Katsina, Nigeria.
From the AP link, we have this gem:
“The fund has demonstrated America’s respect for the world’s cultural heritage,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said last month in announcing the 2010 projects. “Cultural heritage serves as a reminder of historical experiences and achievements of humanity. Ancient structures and objects offer important lessons for us today.”
Will anyone ask this administration as to WHY?
Will anyone ask this administration how many “cultural heritage” restorations of temples, synagogues, Catholic cathedrals and/or churches of the Protestant religion, have been restored?
Will anyone ask since this “program established by Congress in 2001”, if ANY of the above “cultural heritage” projects would be allowed funding, IN the U.S., or is this forbidden by “separation of church and state”?
Will anyone ask this administration if it IS forbidden in the U.S., why are WE doing historic and cultural site restoration, period? Hillary Clinton’s words are bullshit IMHO.
