Colorado has gone from a solid red state to now being up for grabs and could help decide who the next president will be. President Obama has campaigned in Colorado at least 10 times, with GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney following close behind.

AP Exclusive: Official says organized crime possible in attack on CIA agents in Mexico...
A senior U.S. official says there is strong circumstantial evidence that Mexican federal police who fired on a U.S. embassy vehicle, wounding two CIA agents, were working for organized crime on a targeted assassination attempt.
Meanwhile, a Mexican official with knowledge of the case on the Aug. 24 ambush confirmed on Tuesday that prosecutors are investigating whether the Beltran Leyva Cartel was behind the attack.
The Mexican official said that is among several lines of investigation into the shooting up of an armored SUV clearly marked by diplomatic license plates on a rural road near Cuernavaca south of Mexico City. Federal police, historically known for infiltration and corruption by drug cartels, have said the shooting was a case of mistaken identity as officers were looking into the kidnapping of a government employee in that area.
"That's not a 'We're trying to shake down a couple people for a traffic violation' sort of operation. That's a 'We are specifically trying to kill the people in this vehicle'," a U.S. official familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press. "This is not a 'Whoops, we got the wrong people.' "
Photos of the gray Toyota SUV, a model known to be used by Drug Enforcement Administration agents and other U.S. embassy employees working in Mexico, showed it riddled with heavy gunfire. The U.S. embassy called the attack an "ambush."
When asked by the AP if the Mexican federal police officers involved in the shooting were tied to organized crime, the U.S. official said, "The circumstantial evidence is pretty damn strong."
Surveillance cameras in the area recorded two civilian vehicles chasing the U.S. embassy SUV, the Mexican official said. So far Mexican officials have said only federal police fired on the SUV.
The two CIA agents received non-life-threatening wounds and have returned to the United States. The Navy captain was uninjured and radioed the Navy for help.
Twelve officers have been detained in the case and are being held under a form of house arrest pending possible charges, and 51 officers have testified in the case.
A Mexican federal police spokesman said last month that the officers may not have noticed the diplomatic plates. The official said police focused on the unusual sight of a bulletproof sport utility vehicle traveling at high speed on a rural road, not on the car's distinctive diplomatic plates.
Luckily no Americans were killed in the incident, but this is another example of the dangerous border problem and the failed leadership of the Obama administration to properly secure the border and American citizens in foreign countries.
Leaders of a House committee said Tuesday that U.S. diplomats in Libya made repeated requests for increased security for the consulate in Benghazi and were turned down by officials in Washington.
In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Chairman Darrell Issa and Rep. Jason Chaffetz said their information came from "individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya."
In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Chairman Darrell Issa and Rep. Jason Chaffetz said their information came from "individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya."
Issa, R-Calif. and Chaffetz, R-Utah said the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months before Sept. 11.
The lawmakers said they plan a hearing on Oct. 10. They asked Clinton whether the State Department was aware of the previous incidents, and whether the level of security that was provided to the U.S. mission met the security threat, and how the department responded to requests for more security.
Referring to the Sept. 11 attacks, the letter said, "It was clearly never, as administration officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest."
The State Department has declined to answer questions about whether extra security was sought by officials in Benghazi ahead of the Sept. 11 attack. Clinton did, however, discuss security on Sept. 18, when asked whether measures were appropriate.
For days now, rumors have swirled about a Loyola College forum on community organizing in which President Obama purportedly reveals his commitment to property redistribution.
Almost immediately, the liberal press corps closed ranks, first casting doubts on the authenticity of the recording, and then once that was solidly established, declaring the meaning tortured out of pertinent context. Loyola College resisted repeated calls to review the tape and NBC News, the only media organization in possession of it, summarily dismissed it as unworthy of further investigative scrutiny (or a proper public viewing).
This journalistic restraint stands in stark contrast to the mainstream media reaction to a recording of remarks Mitt Romney recently delivered at a private fundraising event in which he uttered his now infamous remarks regarding the 47% of Americans who don’t pay federal income tax.
Obama also stakes out some controversial political territory, claiming that he likely would not have voted for the very popular welfare reform under President Clinton in 1996:
“I did not entirely agree with and probably would have voted against at the federal level.”
However, Obama reveals one happy consequence that issued from that legislation:
“But one good thing that comes out of it is that it essentially desegregates the welfare population,” collapsing the black community into “the working poor, which are the other people. Now you just have one batch of folks. … That is increasingly a majority population.”
Obama cynically refers to this new demographic as an emergent “majority coalition” noting that the success of liberal platforms will require a large and united front of poorer, disenfranchised voters and an electorally influential and well organized band of unions. So the primary benefit of welfare reform, as far as Obama is concerned, is not the boost to the economy it delivered, or the lessening of state dependence and a boon to a general culture of self-sufficiency, or even the superior socioeconomic mobility it catalyzed.
Obama admits:The real advantage [of welfare&the poor] is that it helped to coalesce a community of otherwise electorally disjointed poor citizens into a reliable voting block for the Democratic party.
At least one could admit that Obama was laudably forthcoming that day, pointing out that his political inclinations were generally unrepresentative of most of America...
And the press remains complicit in his strategic dissembling, extending him such generous latitude it finally amounts to coordinated protection.

Fast and Furious: Univision Brings a Face to Countless Murdered Victims in Mexico
Fast and Furious guns have befouled at least 200 crime scenes. Among them:
Excerpted from Infidel Bloggers:
In an interview with the Christian Science Monitor, Univision points out that ATF needed people to get killed in order to reach their goals.
The trust with Mexico has been severely damaged as a result of this program and Univision's report [tonight] will further show this to be true.
In the meantime, many families still await in frustration to find out what really happened and who knew what and when, while their loved ones, like Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata, two US federal agents have been killed.
Now we have the Libya attacks getting similar treatment by the media, though some liberal columnists have spoken out against it and some Democrats are also questioning the administrations response to the attacks.
Now that he’s officially the Republican nominee for president and has an excellent chance of becoming the most powerful man in the world, I feel free to admit, in the full knowledge that nobody cares, that I never liked Mitt Romney.
...I assumed I was missing something and resolved to dive into the Romney literature.
...By my count the literature includes one good book, The Real Romney, by two reporters from the Boston Globe. That’s the same Globe with the leftward tilt to its axis and a legendary anti-Romney animus—which lends authority to their largely favorable portrait. The flattering details of Romney’s life were so numerous and unavoidable that the authors, dammit, had no choice but to include them.
Romney once famously called himself “severely” conservative. Other adverbs fit better: culturally, personally, instinctively. He seems to have missed out on The Sixties altogether, and wanted to. As a freshman at Stanford he protested the protesters, appearing in the quad carrying signs of his own: SPEAK OUT, DON’T SIT IN! In 1968 the May riots stranded him in Paris. “The disorder appalled him,” the authors write. He left Stanford for BYU, where long hair, rock bands, and peace symbols were banned. As a young go-getter he liked to give friends copies of Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill—a Stephen Covey for the Coolidge era, sodden with moral uplift. (Even his anachronisms are anachronistic.) “There was nothing jaded about him,” a school friend tells the authors, “nothing skeptical, nothing ironic.”
At his wedding, he declined when the photographer asked him to kiss the bride: “Not for cameras,” he said. Since that day, Ann says, they haven’t had an argument; friends believe her. And their kids—we’ve all seen their kids. The authors tick off a typical week for the young family. Sunday: “church, reflection, volunteer work, family dinners.” Monday: “family night,” when the family gathered for Bible stories and skits about animals. Tuesday was for family basketball games and cookouts. Friday was date night for Mitt and Ann. Saturday was for doing chores, and so on, in a pinwheel of wholesomeness that a -post-60s ironist can only gape at, disbelieving. The Romneys present a picture of an American family that popular culture has been trying to undo since—well, since An American Family, the 1973 PBS documentary that exposed the typical household as a cauldron of resentment and infidelity.
And now, here, 40 years later, it’s as though it all never happened: a happy American family, led by a baby boomer with no sense of irony! Romney is the sophisticate’s nightmare.
Almost every personal detail about Romney I found endearing. But my slowly softening opinion went instantly to goo when The Real Romney unfolded an account of his endless kindnesses—unbidden, unsung, and utterly gratuitous. “It seems that everyone who has known him has a tale of his altruism,” the authors write.
...In the 1990s a car wreck rendered two of their boys quadriplegics. Drained financially from extraordinary expenses, Mr. Nixon got a call from Romney, whom he barely knew, asking if he could stop by on Christmas Eve. When the day came, all the Romneys arrived bearing presents, including a VCR and a new sound system the Romney boys set up. Later Romney told Nixon that he could take care of the children’s college tuition, which in the end proved unnecessary. “I knew how busy he was,” Nixon told the authors. “He was actually teaching his boys, saying, ‘This is what we do. We do this as a family.’ ”
Romney’s oldest son Tagg once made the same point to the radio host Hugh Hewitt. “He was constantly doing things like that and never telling anyone about them,” Tagg said. “He doesn’t want to tell people about them, but he wanted us to see him. He would let the kids see it because he wanted it to rub off on us.”
...But now I suspect he’s also something else, a creature rarely found in the highest reaches of American politics: a good guy.
Things I didn't know about Romney that make me know his heart is good&unlike Obama he will not try to fundamentally transform America.

Bottom line, if you love life, God and your country and believe in pursuing happiness and the opportunity for everyone to succeed based on your own hard work and innovation than vote for the party of life, liberty and happiness....Romney is your man!
Like jihadists, liberals have no self-control and respect for free speech or opposing views either...
It is great to see this post on the popular blogging site for women, Blogher. I hope that these posts will influence women voters to think wisely before they vote in November. So far the Obama administration and campaign has focused on a faux war on women created by the GOP. However, the real war on women is coming from Obama's policies. More women are unemployed or in poverty than they have been in 17 years! Too many are single women, or single moms who do not have a husband to support them and tend to seek welfare to get by. Sadly, they often become govt dependents rather than achieve self-reliance and independence once they become part of the welfare system.
Romney is determined and capable of turning things around, giving women, men and all people in America the chance to become self sufficient and pursue happiness, if they are willing to work hard. Nobody achieves success by depending on the govt to support your needs, whether it is contraception, health care or otherwise....most often the more dependent you become, the less free you become and less capable you become of achieving success. Poverty than becomes a vicious cycle. People living on Indian reservations can attest to this...the govt subsidizes them and gives them land to live on, yet they are unable to come out of poverty.
These women will share their experiences and knowledge of Mitt Romney from a personal, professional and political view. They are women from all political parties including Republican, Democrat and Independents. They believe in America and believe Romney is capable of leading this country out of this economic recession/depression because they have experienced how he leads, makes decisions and how he treats women and cares for others.
It is my hope more women will become involved politically and become more aware of what is really going on in our political system. I used to think politics and the news were boring, until I became more involved and learned more and more about Obama when he was running in 2008. Since then, I have become actively involved and engaged in what is going on in the world, especially nationally and how it will affect my future and that of my children's and their children's future. As women, we must stand up for our children's future, because they can't speak for themselves and can't vote. We have to make wise choices and vote for those who will help Americans prosper by giving them a hand up, not a handout!
Here is an excerpt of the BlogHer post:
Frankly, we were completely, totally, absolutely fed up. That’s what we told a reporter from the Milwaukee Sentinel today who asked us why a group of female executives are traveling the country telling women about our former boss Mitt Romney....
....Amazingly, most women don’t know that Mitt had women at his side helping him turn around the Olympics in Salt Lake and fix the economy in Massachusetts. It doesn’t surprise me because I know how Mitt puts together his team. He hires the strongest talent he can find, so naturally he ends up with a lot of women. Mitt says he hires people who will “go through walls” to get the job done; the women who have worked with him over the years definitely fit that description. I worked with him for nine years and can tell you that my colleagues in Salt Lake and Massachusetts are as talented and incredible as any group of women in America.
Mitt was recognized every year he was Governor for having more women in Cabinet and senior positions than any other Governor in the country. Women made up half Mitt’s cabinet. Women were at the heart of the economic team he put together to create jobs, cut red-tape and streamline regulations and permitting. He personally chose and campaigned for his Lt. Governor – Kerry Healey – a hard-working, gracious, accomplished woman. His Chief of Staff, Beth Myers, was at the table with him giving advice and counsel throughout his administration – and she has continued to do that in the years since, as campaign manager for his 2008 campaign and as senior strategist in the campaign this time.

via Washington Free Beacon:
The Daily Caller published late Tuesday new clips of then Sen. Barack Obama speaking at Hampton University in Virginia in 2007. The clips include a never-before-seen portion of the speech, in which Obama compares the federal Katrina response to the federal response to 9/11: [using a southern accent&different tone then he normally uses]
“Down in New Orleans, where they still have not rebuilt twenty months later,” he begins, “there’s a law, federal law — when you get reconstruction money from the federal government — called the Stafford Act. And basically it says, when you get federal money, you gotta give a ten percent match. The local government’s gotta come up with ten percent. Every ten dollars the federal government comes up with, local government’s gotta give a dollar.”
“Now here’s the thing,” Obama continues, “when 9/11 happened in New York City, they waived the Stafford Act — said, ‘This is too serious a problem. We can’t expect New York City to rebuild on its own. Forget that dollar you gotta put in. Well, here’s ten dollars.’ And that was the right thing to do. When Hurricane Andrew struck in Florida, people said, ‘Look at this devastation. We don’t expect you to come up with y’own money, here. Here’s the money to rebuild. We’re not gonna wait for you to scratch it together — because you’re part of the American family.’”
That’s not, Obama says, what is happening in majority-black New Orleans. “What’s happening down in New Orleans? Where’s your dollar? Where’s your Stafford Act money?” Obama shouts, angry now. “Makes no sense! Tells me that somehow, the people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!”
It’s a remarkable moment, and not just for its resemblance to Kayne West’s famous claim that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” but also because of its basic dishonesty. By January of 2007, six months before Obama’s Hampton speech, the federal government had sent at least $110 billion to areas damaged by Katrina. Compare this to the mere $20 billion that the Bush administration pledged to New York City after Sept. 11.

My fellow Americans, who are "your people"? I ask because U.S. attorney general Eric Holder, who is black, used the phrase "my people" in congressional testimony this week. It was an unmistakably color-coded and exclusionary reference intended to deflect criticism of the Obama Justice Department's selective enforcement policies.

NACO, AZ - Authorities have identified a U.S. Border Patrol agent who died after a shooting near Naco, Ariz. Tuesday morning.
Three agents total were involved: 1 was killed, 1 received non-life threatening injuries, and another was unharmed, said Cochise County Sheriff's spokeswoman Carol Capas.
See reaction from Terry's family.
Fast&furious was part of the Obama administration's gun running operation that went out of control because they failed to track weapons being sold to gun runners, which have now been linked to several murders, including the death of BP agent Brian Terry in 2010.
May the family of this agent find comfort in their prayers and may this agent RIP. He was so young...though rumored to have a wife and small children.
From a commenter:
Internal Department of Homeland Security documents obtained by the House Judiciary Committee reveal that President Obama and other administration officials have falsified their record to achieve their so-called historic deportation numbers.The Obama team has claimed to deport about 100,000 more people than it actually has, by including people arrested at the border and sent back to Mexico among their deportation figures.
“This means a single illegal immigrant can show up at the border and be removed numerous times in a single year – and counted each time as a removal. When the numbers from this Border Patrol program are removed from this year’s deportation data, it shows that removals are actually down nearly 20% from 2009.”
President Barack Obama himself may have inadvertently added fuel to the fire.
"The statistics are actually a little deceptive," Obama said last month during a discussion with Hispanic journalists. There has been "a much greater emphasis on criminals than non-criminals." And "with stronger border enforcement, we've been apprehending folks at the borders and sending them back. That is counted as a deportation even though they may have only been held for a day or 48 hours."
Update via KGUN9 Tucson,AZ:
Customs and Border Protection identified the agent killed as Nicolas Ivie, 30, a native of Provo, Utah. He worked for Border Patrol since January 2008.Ivie was married with two children living in Sierra Vista.
Carol Capas with the Cochise County Sheriff's Office told KGUN9 that three Border Patrol agents were walking up a trail when the gunfire occurred. One agent was killed, one was injured and another was left unharmed.
They were in the area investigating a sensor that was triggered indicating something was moving across the area. The shooting occurred off of Highway 80, seven miles east of Bisbee.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, release the following statement:
"Arizona has lost another Border Patrol agent.

The investigation is being led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cochise County Sheriff's Office.
At a press conference held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, no comments were released on anything found at the scene, including weapons. Officials say the scene is still being processed which could take a couple of days.
Tweet As a result of Univision's coverage of the Fast and Furious scandal, more calls are being made for Eric Holder to step down from the Department of Justice, including that of GOP VP candidate Paul Ryan.
Fast and Furious was not the only gun-running program run by the ATF, but that “Castaway” sent unregistered guns into Honduras as well. The claim had been made before, and ridiculed by the Left, but Univision asserts that they have admissions from Hugh Crumpler who was caught in the operation smuggling guns, and became an informant in a plea deal:
The Univision News investigation also found ATF offices from states besides Arizona pursued similar misguided strategies. In Florida, the weapons from Operation Castaway ended up in the hands of criminals in Colombia, Honduras and Venezuela (link audio crumpler), the lead informant in the case told Univision News in a prison interview.
“When the ATF stopped me, they told me the guns were going to cartels,” Hugh Crumpler, a Vietnam veteran turned arms trafficker, told Univision News. “The ATF knew before I knew and had been following me for a considerable length of time. They could not have followed me for two months like they said they did, and not know the guns were going somewhere, and not want for that to be happening.”
But the ATF specifically denied this in a statement made to Leftist propaganda machine Media Matters from July 27th:
The ATF denies that agents knowingly allowed firearms to be smuggled to Honduras or any other country as part of Operation Castaway, telling Media Matters:
ATF agents were careful to ensure that no illegal weapons left the US, as evidenced by the interdiction and seizure for evidence of a large box containing handguns and other firearms that Operation Castaway defendants attempted to mail by air freight to Honduras in the final days of the Castaway investigation.
Crumpler made some very surprising claims as part of the interview with Univision, which has released an edited version of the interview below:

A Free Press For A Free People Since 1997...
“The religious group that seems to be figuring most prominently in the presidential election right now is the Roman Catholic Church,” wrote AP’s Rachel Zoll in an article about vice presidential candidates Republican Rep. Paul Ryan and the incumbent, Democrat Joe Biden. While that one sentence is true, Ms. Zoll doesn’t seem to know what makes someone truly Catholic or not. Worse yet, a vast number of Catholic voters may not know, either.
According the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate, 77.7 million Americans declared themselves Catholic in 2011. That’s a hefty 24.9 percent of the U.S. Census Bureau’s estimated population for last year, and Catholics are supposed to be the champions of human rights. However, according to Brian Burch of CatholicVote.org, 20 percent of eligible Catholics – 15 million – are not registered to vote in this crucial election.
The Catholic Church rightly condemns all forms Marxism (collectivism, communism, socialism) – but few Catholics know it. The Church also condemns human laws permitting or coercing the crime of abortion, but many Catholics ignore it. (See more in the searchable Catholic Catechism. http://www.scborromeo.org/ccc.htm ) Yet Barack Obama and the nominally Catholic Joe Biden are imposing Marxist dictates and abortions upon the American people, while Mitt Romney and his truly Catholic running mate, Paul Ryan, want to liberate Americans by protecting our rights to life, liberty and free enterprise.
Catholics are duty bound to see the big the picture and vote accordingly. At this moment, all Americans are subject to President Obama’s policies here – and billions more vulnerable persons are subject to his policies around the world. Here, Obama and his administration have ordered the Catholic Church, other organizations and individual citizens to pay for abortion insurance policies.
Obamacare also empowers the government to deny health care to anyone, especially disabled persons and the elderly. And if the Romney/Ryan claims are true, Obamacare takes $716 billion from Medicare. Furthermore, companies that refuse to pay for abortion insurance – even religious institutions – will be fined $100 per day per employee, and they’ll quickly be bankrupted.
...when I tell Muslims about Obama’s abortion agenda...Muslims.... all open their eyes wide and ask “Whyyyyyy?” for a full five seconds because the murder of unborn babies is incomprehensible to them – as it should be to everyone...
Father Paul Schenck of the National Pro-Life Center wrote:“My friend, Nat Hentoff, a founding editor of the Village Voice newspaper in New York City, who is a syndicated columnist for the Washington Post, a prolific commentator on the Constitution and a jazz music critic, is a left-wing atheist and thoroughly pro-life. The defense of human life is an eminently human position.”
When I further tell Muslims from various countries that in 2010 Obama spent at least $18 million in Kenya campaigning for the new constitution which decriminalizes abortion and establishes Islamist courts[sharia law], they are shocked because they fled Islamist tyrannies.
...those who vote for Obama/Biden and other abortion politicians become accessories to mass murder.
Warnings from Pope Benedict
Over the centuries, popes have condemned despotism and cultures of death. In April 2008, Pope Benedict XVI came the United States and warned the Catholic bishops, saying: “[I]t cannot be assumed that all Catholic citizens think in harmony with the Church’s teaching on today’s key ethical questions. Once again, it falls to you to ensure that the moral formation provided at every level of ecclesial life reflects the authentic teaching of the Gospel of life.”
In January of this election year, Pope Benedict summoned the Catholic bishops of the United States, he warned them about coming government attacks on the Church and he commanded them to fight the good fight.
In part, the Holy Father said: “[I]t is imperative that the entire Catholic community in the United States come to realize the grave threats to the Church’s public moral witness presented by a radical secularism which finds increasing expression in the political and cultural spheres.”
Back in 2006, the World Health Organization assembled reports showing that oral contraceptives are carcinogens. So with Obama mandating free contraceptives, a larger environmental disaster looms because synthetic hormones in contraceptives are poisoning water supplies, thereby neutering wildlife, rendering humans infertile and increasing the risk of cancer.
The “fiercely pro-life” Catholic Judge Andrew Napolitano concurred when he said: “If Catholics kept the faith, Roe versus Wade would never have happened.”
Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of Springfield, Ill., says, your own salvation is at stake.
I keep telling my husband to talk to her, send her links and videos on this issue and when he does talk to her about it she always just dismisses his advice and evidence as untrue, propaganda from the right or extremist positions of the left....ignoring the fact that Obama himself supports these things and IS the EXTREMIST!
My goal this election year is not only to remove Obama from office, but to get my Mother in-law to change her vote...however, I have so far been unsuccessful and I try to go through my husband to reach out to her, because whenever we talk/discuss politics it turns into a fight. I don't want to have negative feelings towards one another because we disagree politically and on fundamental issues that our faith also opposes, but it is so frustrating when you know someone is being mislead and falling for the lies and rhetoric.
I pray God's wisdom and her faith will help her to make the right decision when it comes to casting her vote. It's time for a change and time to put God&country before political ideology! I truly believe our freedoms, life, liberty and happiness are at risk!
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has weighed in on the U.S.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has weighed in on the U.S. presidential race, saying he prefers President Barack Obama.
Chavez also said in a televised interview that aired Sunday that he'd like to have "normal" relations with the U.S. government.
The Venezuelan leader says, in his words, "If I were American, I'd vote for Obama."
Shockingly....he'd vote for Obama if he could vote. Not surprising, Obama satisfies the tyrants of the world, especially the socialists like Chavez and Castro. Obama also show weakness and appeasement towards Islamists, enabling the MB to come to power in Egypt, and eventually in Libya and Syria if we continue to aid and support the Arab Spring.
The 'Arab Spring' was disguised as a democratic movement, which would bring free elections and democracy, including more freedoms and human rights, but it has only helped give Islamists the right to vote for candidates who support sharia law, which oppresses women, Christians, Jews and all non-Muslims or those who do not support sharia law.
Los Angeles Times reporter Paul Watson, who dug into Obama's allegation of error, said "...his former Roman Catholic and Muslim teachers, along with two people who were identified by Obama's grade school teacher as childhood friends, says Obama was registered by his family as a Muslim at both schools he attended. The registration meant that during the third and fourth grades, Obama learned about Islam for two hours each week in religion classes. The childhood friends say Obama sometimes went to Friday prayers at the local mosque.." (Something else Obama claims he never did.) "...Obama's younger sister, Maya Soetoro, said in a statement released by the campaign that the family attended the mosque only 'for big communal events' not every Friday." (The family—i.e, all members of the family including Obama's atheist mother.)
In August, 2006 US Senator Barack Obama [D-IL] made a special trip to visit a special man in Kenya. The man's name was Raila Amolo Odinga. He is the head of the National Muslim Leaders Forum [NAMLEF] in Kenya. The political party he heads is called the Orange Democratic Movement [ODM]—although there is definitely nothing democratic about his political party of NAMLEF. The ODM is dedicated to overthrowing the legitimate democratic government of Kenya. Odinga is not really concerned how he achieves his objective. It matters little to him if he assumes power through a free election—or by revolution. But, by hook or crook, he is determined to become the president of Kenya. If he succeeds, he will be president for life and Kenya will become another Afghanistan.
