ICE Does Their Job In California Sweep

1,150 Illegals Arrested In California

Note: While the nation's fixation with the bailout (rescue), and stocks plummet, ICE was doing their job:

Federal immigration authorities say more than 1,150 people have been arrested in a special three-week sweep in California.

The sweep targeted those who ignored deportation orders or returned to the U.S. illegally after being deported.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Virginia Kice said Monday that more than 400 of those arrested were from Los Angeles and several Southern California counties.

Debates: Obama's Iraq Withdrawal Plan Dangerous...

Will Presidential Election Be Determined On Integrity?
Obama Fails Commander In Chief Questions

Though Sen. Barack Obama pushed back on Republican presidential nominee's assertion during the debate that the country's top military official categorized his Iraq withdrawal plan as "dangerous", during a July interview Admiral Michael Mullen warned that the consequences of removing all U.S. troops by 2010 "could be very dangerous."

"Admiral Mullen suggests that Senator Obama's plan is dangerous," said Sen. John McCain. "That's not the case," Obama interjected.

In fact, 'Fox News Sunday' host Chris Wallace asked Mullen to put Obama's plan aside and speak to the general consequences of removing all combat troops from Iraq within the next two years.

Mullen responded, ""I think the consequences could be very dangerous in that regard. I'm convinced at this point in time that…making reductions based on conditions on the ground are very important."

Meet Florida Democrat Congressman Alcee Hastings

In a statement of apology, Hastings said: “I regret the comments I made last Tuesday that were not smart and certainly not relevant to hunters or sportsmen. I regret that I was not clearer and apologize to Governor Palin, my host where I was speaking, and those who my comments may have offended.” Read Article...

Implies Anyone Who Hunts and Cleans Game For Food
Doesn't Care About Blacks and Jews
- A Democrat Congressman Extraordinaire -

Note: I personally know many people of different national origins - Jewish, African, African-American, Native-American, Asian, Mid Eastern and Hispanic background that are hunters, who clean and dress wild game for food. Ever watched National Geographic? Not all can hunt moose, because it is regional wild game, but the point is obvious...

“If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,” Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida said at a panel about the shared agenda of Jewish and African-American Democrats Wednesday. Hastings, who is African-American, was explaining what he intended to tell his Jewish constituents about the presidential race. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through,” Hastings added as the room erupted in laughter and applause.

Help George Hussein Onyango Obama - The Obama Compassion Fund

Where To Send Obama Compassion Fund Contributions
Half Brother George Lives In Poverty In Kenya While Barak Is A Millionaire

Barack Obama stated in a speech, "I am my brother's keeper" but that he hasn't done much to help his impoverished brother...

The Democratic presidential candidate, who made $4 million last year, hasn’t lifted a finger to help his half-brother George.

Mainstream Iowan recently posted about an article in which the Telegraph reported back in August that the Italian version of Vanity Fair had done a piece on George Hussein Onyango Obama, the Democratic Nominee's half brother who lives in Nairobi, Kenya on about a dollar per month. The article asserted that George Obama is ashamed of his impoverished state and stated that he wanted to take a class at a technical college in the hopes of a better life. George Obama is quoted as saying that he met his brother twice in his life, most recently in 2006, which he described a brief reunion, lasting only a few minutes.

Saturday Night Live Now Angering Viewers

Sick Jokes - Slander And Disrespect
Under The Guise Of Comedy
Skits Crossing The Line - Sick Jokes In The Name Of Comedy

Having watched Saturday Night Live off and on for many, many years, I can say I am no prude. As a Palin supporter I could even laugh at at Tina Fey, but there were some personal, mean, disgusting and disrespectful things said about Senator Clinton. Mrs. Clinton is after all, the former first lady and a United States Senator. Then the latest - an incest innuendo in the name of comedy, that Todd Palin is doing his daughters, because he is from Alaska...

Sarah Sullivan writes about the skit:
Then the bomb is dropped when a Times reporter asks, "What about the husband? You know he's doing those daughters. I mean, come on. It's Alaska."

Franco's character responds, "He very well could be. Admittedly, there is no evidence of that, but on the other hand, there is no convincing evidence to the contrary. And these are just some of the lingering questions about Governor Palin."

Needless to say, the laughter wasn't as enthusiastic as it normally is.

The skit ended by describing how one of the New York Times reporters received a Pulitzer Prize in 2009 "for his Times series on unproven, yet un-disproven incest in the Palin family.

Barak Obama On Faith And Family

Learn About George Hussein Onyango Obama, Barak's
Half Brother - and The Obama Compassion Fund
Youngest Half-Brother Lives In Poverty

Barack Obama's long-lost half-brother has surfaced in Kenya - living like a recluse on less than $1 a month and hiding his family ties.

George Hussein Onyango Obama, 25, said he's embarrassed to reveal his identity - because he makes his home in a 6-by-9-foot hut on the outskirts of Nairobi while his world-famous brother is hoping to move into the White House.

"If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related; I am ashamed," he told the Italian Vanity Fair. "No one knows who I am."

Barack Obama, 47, wrote warmly about his youngest half-brother in his autobiography, describing him as a "beautiful boy with a rounded head."

Dinesh D'Souza Starts The Obama Compassion Fund
For George Obama Barak's Half Brother

Here are the facts about George Obama. He’s in his twenties. He lives in a slum in a hut. He wants to become a mechanic but doesn’t have the money. He reports that he gets by on a dollar a month. He met George Obama in 2006 for a few minutes and said it was like talking to a “total stranger.” He said when people notice he has the same name as Barack Obama, he denies they are related because he is “ashamed.” The Democratic presidential candidate, who made $4 million last year, hasn’t lifted a finger to help his half-brother.

My modest campaign to assist George Obama has been coming nicely. Sean Hannity mentioned it on his show on the Fox News Channel, and I appeared on a handful of radio shows to talk about the idea. Interestingly the George Obama Compassion Fund was reported on by Kenya's leading newspaper "The Nation." So far I have received more than $1,000 in small contributions. With my kickoff contribution of $1,000, that's upwards of $2,000 for George Obama.

Here are some donor comments: "This is for the poor brother long forgotten." “A brother is a terrible thing to waste.” "I wish I had a brother, or even a step-brother. George is not my relative and not my race or religion but I still want to contribute to his welfare." "When Obama said that not taking care of the least of our brothers is our greatest moral failure, who knew that he was talking literally about the least of his brothers?" "I never thought I'd be writing a check to anyone named Obama, but I do want to be a true Christian and help this man in his shameful situation." "I'd send more, but I make $9.10 per hour." "I'm unemployed, but I can spare $5 for the Obama Compassion Fund."

Senator Joe Biden On God...

Senator Biden Maintains He Is Catholic
- While 55 Catholic Bishops Denounce Biden's Views -

Last August, Archbishop Raymond Burke, former Archbishop of St Louis and now Prefect of the Apostolic Segnatura in Rome, said communion should be denied to pro-abortion politicians "until they have reformed their lives".

...More, as promised, on Senator Joe Biden (why should Sarah Palin get all the coverage?). Remember, you read it here first: on September 11 this blog reported a mounting backlash from Catholic bishops against Biden, Barack Obama's "Catholic" pro-abortion running mate. At that time I estimated eight bishops had come out to denounce Biden; the total is now 55. Beyond that, Biden is being trashed across every state of the Union by Catholic newspapers, TV and radio stations, and blogs. It is a tsunami of rejection.

Sarah Palin and TrooperGate Part III. Walt Monegan

Monegan : An At-Will Employee
Who Served At The Pleasure Of The Governor
- While Repeatedly Committing Insubordination

In February, Monegan signed a public letter of support for a $3.6 million project designed to keep troubled teens off the street in Anchorage — even though the governor had vetoed the project last year and hadn't included money for it in her budget this year.

"I am stunned and amazed — do you know anything about this?" budget director Karen Rehfeld wrote to two other high-level staffers when she learned of the letter.

"Think about that: one of the governor's own cabinet members publicly contradicting her veto decision," Stapleton said.

Monegan acknowledged he shouldn't have signed the letter, because it put the governor in the awkward position of defending her veto decision. But he said he thought of the letter as simply making another run at getting funding for a worthy project.

The last straw, the McCain campaign said, was in July, when Monegan planned to travel to Washington to seek federal money for a plan to assign troopers, judges and prosecutors who could exclusively handle sexual assault cases — one of the state's most intractable crime problems.

In a July 7 e-mail, John Katz, the governor's special counsel, noted two problems with the trip: The governor hadn't agreed the money should be sought, and the request was "out of sequence with our other appropriations requests and could put a strain on the evolving relationship between the Governor and Sen. (Ted) Stevens."

Four days later, Monegan was fired. He said he had kept others in the administration fully apprised of his plans to go to Washington.

When Monegan was fired, the governor offered to let him head the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. Asked why someone with a history of insubordination would be given such a position, Stapleton said that without having to deal with a budget, Monegan would be able to focus on alcohol abuse issues.

The controversy erupted in the weeks following the firing, as it emerged that Palin, her husband, Todd, and several high-level staffers had contacted Monegan about state trooper Mike Wooten, who had gone through a nasty divorce from Palin's sister before she became governor. While Monegan says no one from the administration ever told him directly to fire Wooten, he says they didn't have to: There was nothing subtle about the repeated contacts.

Sarah Palin and TrooperGate Part II. Continued Intimidation...

Wooten Continued To Continued to Intimidate The Palin Family - Threatened To Bring Down The Palin Family - Publicly Used Obscenities Toward The Governor's Daughter

But Gov. Palin, in papers filed with the request for investigation, said she never knew the trooper had been disciplined until after she removed the commissioner over what she called a dispute over budget and other issues and his personnel files were made public. In the papers, she said the trooper since 2005 has continued to behave aggressively toward her family, taunting them "that he was a trooper and nothing would bring him down."

For example, Gov. Palin alleged the trooper confronted her daughter Bristol at a football game, calling her an obscenity.

And around the time Mr. Monegan was fired, Ms. McCann called police after her ex-husband refused to comply with provisions of a court-visitation order and return her children. Gov. Palin said police "refused to intervene," but that eventually Mr. Wooten's supervisor got him to comply with the order. "Wooten was furious with the humiliation, and warned Molly that he was going to 'get' both her and Gov. Palin," the governor's filing says. "There is evidence suggesting that Wooten was following the governor."

Wooten's Messy Divorce, A Judge And A Gag Order
And A Questionable Workers' Comp Claim

An Anchorage judge three years ago warned Sarah Palin and members of her family to stop "disparaging" the reputation of Alaska State Trooper Michael Wooten, who at the time was undergoing a bitter separation and divorce from Palin's sister Molly.

Allegations that Palin, her husband Todd, and at least one top gubernatorial aide continued to vilify Wooten—after Palin became Alaska's governor and pressured state police officials to take action against him—are at the center of "Troopergate," a political and ethical controversy which has embroiled Palin's administration and is currently the subject of an official inquiry by a special investigator hired by the state legislature.

As the divorce case dragged on, the judge's concern about family "disparagement" appeared to deepen. In an order signed Jan. 31, 2006, which granted Palin's sister and Wooten a final divorce decree, Judge Suddock continued to express concern about attacks by Palin's family on Wooten. The judge even threatened to curb Palin's sister's child custody rights if family criticism of Wooten continued.

"It is the mother's [Hackett's] responsibility to set boundaries for her relatives and insure [sic] they respect them, and the disparagement by either parent, or their surrogates is emotional child abuse," Judge Suddock wrote. He added that: "If the court finds it is necessary due to disparagement in the Mat-Su Valley [the area north of Anchorage where Palin and her extended family live], for the children's best interests, it [the court] will not hesitate to order custody to the father and a move into Anchorage." Cyr, the union official, said that to his knowledge, no such move was ever ordered.

In monitoring how a joint-custody arrangement worked out, the judge said in his order that he would pay particular attention to problems noted by a "custody investigator," specifically "the disparagement of the father [Wooten] by the mother [Molly Hackett, Sarah Palin's sister] and her family members."

The Palins later raised allegations about Wooten with public-safety chief Monegan, according to an account Monegan gave to The Washington Post. Last February, a top Palin gubernatorial aide named Frank Bailey criticized Wooten in detail in a conversation with another senior state-police official. Bailey repeated previous charges made by the Palins against the trooper—including allegations that he had Tasered his stepson; driven a cop car while holding a beer; and shot a moose without a permit (charges which resulted in his suspension for five days without pay as a trooper). But Bailey also made a new allegation: that Wooten might have submitted a questionable workers' compensation claim. The state police recorded Bailey's conversation, and Palin later released it after Monegan's sacking.

Palin and Bailey both said that Palin did not instigate Bailey's complaints about Wooten to the police. Bailey, who is now on paid leave from his state job, has said that in trashing Wooten to state police management, he had "overstepped my boundaries … I should not have spoken for the governor, or Todd, for that matter."

In a press release issued last week by her new lawyer, Palin continued to attack the character of Wooten—still serving as a state trooper in Palin's hometown of Wasilla. The release repeats allegations that Wooten had threatened members of her family, including her father, with violence; that Wooten had threatened to "bring" Palin and members of her family "down;" and that Wooten had once been the subject of a court-imposed domestic-violence protection order. A court filing by Wooten's lawyer indicates that within months of being issued, the violence protection order was dismissed.

Sarah Palin and TrooperGate Part I.

A Matter Of Public Record...
Some Background On The Officer In Question

This matter concerns the conduct of Mike Wooten, age 35, an Alaskan State Trooper since March 2001. Mr Wooten has been divorced and remarried four (4) times. This matter started in 2005, when Wooten was in the midst of a divorce and custody dispute from Sarah Palin's sister, Molly McCann. (Wooten has since remarried and divorced.)

A Domestic Violence Protective Order Against Wooten:
The troopers' investigation into Wooten began after Chuck Heath -- Wooten's father-in-law and Palin and McCann's dad -- alerted troopers about a domestic violence protective order McCann had obtained against Wooten on April 11, 2005. McCann filed for divorce the same day, according to the court docket.

"Extreme verbal abuse & violent threats & physical intimidation,"
McCann wrote in her April 11, 2005, petition to the court. He had driven drunk multiple times, threatened her father, told her to "put a leash on your sister and family or I'm going to bring them down," her petition says. A judge issued a 20-day protective order to keep Wooten away.

Col. Julia Grimes, then head of Alaska State Troopers:
"The record clearly indicates a serious and concentrated pattern of unacceptable and at times, illegal activity occurring over a lengthy period, which establishes a course of conduct totally at odds with the ethics of our profession," Col. Julia Grimes, then head of Alaska State Troopers, wrote in March 1, 2006, letter suspending Wooten for 10 days. After the union protested it, the suspension was reduced to five days. Col. Grimes warned that if he messed up again, he'd be fired.

Troopers eventually investigated 13 issues and found four in which Wooten violated policy or broke the law or both:

• Wooten used a Taser on his stepson.
• He illegally shot a moose.
• He drank beer in his patrol car on one occasion.
• He told others his father-in-law would "eat a f'ing lead bullet" if he helped his daughter get an attorney for the divorce.

Beyond the investigation sparked by the family, trooper commanders saw cause to discipline or give written instructions to correct Wooten seven (7) times since he joined the force, according to Grimes' letter to Wooten.
