EE.UU. reconoce la existencia del Área 51, lugar de “misterio y conspiración”  Por Laura Koran

(CNN) — El Área 51 ha sido durante mucho tiempo un tema de fascinación, teorías de la conspiración y seguidores de lo paranormal, pero documentos recién difundidos por la CIA reconocen oficialmente el sitio y sugieren que el área sirvió para acciones menos reconocidas de lo que muchos supusieron.

De acuerdo con esos reportes, que incluyen un mapa de la locación de la base en Nevada, el Área 51 fue solo un sitio de prueba para los programas de vuelo del gobierno U-2 y OXCART. El programa llevó a cabo programas de vigilancia en el mundo, incluyendo la Unión Soviética durante la Guerra Fría.

El Área 51, ubicada a unos 201 kilómetros al noreste de Las Vegas, es un sinónimo de cultura popular mezclada son secrecía del gobierno y muchos han teorizado que sostiene la respuesta de una de las más grandes cuestiones de la humanidad: ¿estamos solos en el universo?

Pero los nuevos documentos no mencionaron cuartos de autopsia para extraterrestres ni naves espaciales aparcadas.

La información será decepcionante para algunos, que han visto el área como un punto de encuentro de los extraterrestes.

Para esos sólidos creyentes, la existencia de una nave espacial en el Área 51 y los intentos del gobierno para cubrir sus rastros, es irrefutable, y lo ha sido a raíz de que reportes de Objetos Voladores No Identificados (OVNI) comenzaron a surgir en el desierto de Nevada durante la mitad del siglo XX.

El mapa y otros documentos fueros dados a conocer en respuesta a una solicitud de la Ley de Libertad de Información hecha por Jeffrey T. Richelson, investigador principal en el Archivo de Seguridad Nacional en 2005.

Richelson presentó la solicitud como parte de sus investigaciones continúas sobre los programas de vigilancia aérea y dijo a CNN que no le fue dada una explicación sobre por qué los nuevos documentos contenían menos palabras que las versiones previas desclasificadas por la agencia.

El investigador señala, sin embargo, que la localización del Área 51 no era un secreto muy bien guardado, su ubicación aparece en libros de vigilancia aérea y está muy difundida entre la cultura popular estadounidense.

De hecho, el mapa que fue dado a conocer en los documentos de la CIA es muy similar al que aparece al buscar en Google Maps la frase “Área 51”. Antiguos documentos del gobierno también se referían al lugar, sin embargo, este es el primero que acredita su existencia y ubicación.

Richelson dijo a CNN que cree que podría significar un dramático cambio en la voluntad del gobierno de desclasificar información sobre la afamada base y que el hecho incluso podría llevar a que se difundan más datos a futuro.

 

Obama has more excuses than he has scandals concerning the myriad of problems in the black community, including the bad behavior of black kids in schools.

In his latest “I hate imperialist white America” action, Obama wants to regulate schools’ disciplinary actions so that penalties are more fair. In other words, so what black kids behave worse in overwhelming numbers — some other ethnic group needs to pay. Think of it as “redistribution” of consequences. The President’s July 26 executive order established a government panel to promote “a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools.” In typical Obama fashion he has established a panel to solve unsolvable problems that people on the panel created. “African Americans lack equal access to highly effective teachers and principals, safe schools, and challenging college-preparatory classes, and they disproportionately experience school discipline,” said the order, titled “White House Initiative On Educational Excellence.” Essentially Obama is admitting that: Schools suck Schools with predominantly black students suck the most. So the dirty little secret in “education” is that black kids are disciplined at higher rates than non-blacks.  Let’s run with this for a moment. We have a school system RUN BY LIBERALS who are the biggest bleeding hearts on the planet for all things black. Are these Liberals disciplining black kids, dare I say TARGETING these kids? What Obama’s “Initiative on Educational Excellence” seems to be leaving out is, MOST of these teachers teaching black kids in schools with heavy black populations are…BLA-ACK! But don’t expect black teachers to sound the warning bell on how difficult their job has become because of scourge of Liberalism. No, there is too much money to be had in keeping their mouths shut and just keeping that conveyor belt of ignorance pumping dumb black kids out of the schools…right into prison.

The Architect of Destruction
Very strong, but makes a lot of sense.   By Maureen Scott

Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him.
It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America .
Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.
Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets “goose bumps” when a band plays “The Star Spangled Banner,” or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of ” America the Beautiful?” Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday – or someone plays “taps” on a trumpet? Has he ever shared the admiration of the military as we, as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn’t have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America, penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.

Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn’t delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn’t singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.
Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn’t really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us. 
He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many. Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego. He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who opposes his policies and actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.
Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America, rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the “Great Uniter”). He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions. And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.
Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.
· Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.
· Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.
· Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people – on a daily basis!
Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America, and the epitome of a Demagogue.

20 Most Divisive Democrat Quotes of the Obama Era

Kyle Becker | On 13, Aug 2013

The nation’s first ‘post-partisan’ president Barack Obama rode into office on a wave of enthusiasm like the savior of a divided nation. Obama promised he would transcend the petty squabbling of “red states and blue states” with his vacuous solution of “hope and change.” But Democrats are constantly smearing Americans who care about their nation as bigots, when opposition is really based on people standing up for their principles. SHARE this slideshow to prove to voters that there is a lot of unfounded hate speech coming from the left. http://www.ijreview.com/2013/08/72646-20-most-divisive-democrat-quotes-of-the-obama-era/?utm_source=EmailElect&utm_medium=Email&utm_content=Subscriber%231909&utm_campaign=08-14-2013%20IJ%20Review

A éste, como no pudo pagar, ordenó su señor venderle, y a su mujer e hijos, y todo lo que tenía, para que se le pagase la deuda.  

Entonces aquel siervo, postrado, le suplicaba, diciendo: Señor, ten paciencia conmigo, y yo te lo pagaré todo. El señor de aquel siervo, movido a misericordia, le soltó y le perdonó la deuda.

 

Pero saliendo aquel siervo, halló a uno de sus consiervos, que le debía cien denarios; y asiendo de él, le ahogaba, diciendo:

Págame lo que me debes. Entonces su consiervo, postrándose a sus pies, le rogaba diciendo: Ten paciencia conmigo, y yo te lo pagaré todo. Mas él no quiso, sino fue y le echó en la cárcel, hasta que pagase la deuda.

 

Viendo sus consiervos lo que pasaba, se entristecieron mucho, y fueron y refirieron a su señor todo lo que había pasado. Entonces, llamándole su señor, le dijo: Siervo malvado, toda aquella deuda te perdoné, porque me rogaste. ¿No debías tú también tener misericordia de tu consiervo, como yo tuve misericordia de ti? Entonces su señor,

enojado, le entregó a los verdugos, hasta que pagase todo lo que le debía.

Arpaio pondrá cruces donde se encuentren cuerpos de inmigrantes en el desierto

Por David Simpson,  (CNN) – El polémico alguacil Joe Arpaio anunció que sus oficiales en elcondado de MaricopaArizona, pondrán cruces de madera blancas en los lugares donde encuentren cuerpos de inmigrantes que mueren en el desierto en su intento por cruzar la frontera desde México.

Arpaio dijo que 14 personas han muerto desde junio en la zona conocida como Gild Bend.

Más de 30 personas han sido rescatadas en la misma zona, dijo en una conferencia de prensa el jueves en el desierto al sur de Phoenix.

“Los inmigrantes que cruzan el desierto están muriendo en números desconocidos debido a las condiciones brutales de la zona y las temperaturas demasiado altas”, dijo el alguacil.

Arpaio dijo que los cruces, hechas por prisioneros, también servirán como puntos de referencia para que las personas en peligro en el desierto pueden dar su ubicación cuando llaman para pedir ayuda.

El sheriff criticó al gobierno federal por no sellar la frontera y dijo que se debe reembolsar a su condado “el tiempo y los recursos gastados en estas misiones de misericordia”.

Arpaio es conocido por su enfoque estricto de la ley de inmigración en el condado de Maricopa, y ha estado en desacuerdo con el gobierno federal sobre la política de inmigración.

 

HATE CRIME: Trial for Black Woman Who Killed White Boy with Blow Torch Begins By Clash Daily / 14 August 2013 / 

According to ClashDaily.com’s sleuth, Donald Joy– “Mona Nelson killed 12yr. old Jonathan Foster with a blowtorch. Nancy Grace dropped the story as soon as she realized it was a black woman murdering a little white boy. The media have avoided the story like the plague, never once looking into whether it was a “hate crime.” The original local news report has been removed. Suspect has sought and received legal counsel from local leadership of the New Black Panther Party.  No story here, folks. Move along …”

HOUSTON (KTRK) — The trial begins today for the woman accused of kidnapping and murdering a boy.

Mona Nelson is charged with capital murder. Prosecutors say she kidnapped 12-year-old Jonathan Foster on Christmas Eve of 2010. His burned remains were found in a ditch soon after, but detectives could never come up with a motive.

Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty. Nelson has asked for a judge instead of a jury to decide the verdict.

Below is the full horror story via The Daily Mail…

Mona Nelson, the woman accused of murdering Texas boy Jonathan Foster, spoke for the first time since being arrest – proclaiming her innocence.

Nelson, 44, told reporters that she would never do anything to harm a child, and that she has five grandchildren of her own

‘I’m not a monster… I love kids,’ she told a local TV station from her prison cell.

Although Nelson is adamant that she would not harm any child, it is not a view shared by police, who believe the 12-year-old Foster may not be her only victim.

The boy was reported missing from his home on Christmas Eve, after his mother claims she received a strange call at her workplace from a gruff-sounding woman.

Jonathan’s mother, Angela Davis, initially told police that he was with a babysitter. But she later admitted that he was home alone.

His burned body was discovered on Tuesday in a roadside ditch in Houston, not far from where he lived.

Nelson told to local KTRK TV that a member of Jonathan’s family gave her $20 to dump a plastic container on Christmas Eve.

She claimed she was drunk on vodka and didn’t know what was inside the container.

Murdered: The badly burned body of Jonathan Foster was found dumped in a roadside ditch in Houston

She said she chose a random Houston ditch to dump the container in.

But police revealed that Jonathan’s burned body was not discovered in a plastic container.

Nelson insisted: ‘I’m not a monster. I have five grandkids and I love kids.’

She admitted having a cutting torch, a welding instrument that police say she used to burn the body, but she said she needed it for her job as a welder.

When asked if she used it on Jonathan, she said: ‘I would never do that.’

Police allege that Nelson’s truck was spotted on surveillance footage dumping something in the ditch where the body was found.

In addition, investigators say they’ve discovered evidence at Nelson’s apartment that allegedly links her to the crime, including burned carpet and twine similar to that used to Jonathan’s hands.

Houston Police Department Homicide Detective Mike Miller called Nelson a ‘cold, soulless murderer who showed an absolute lack of remorse in taking the life of Jonathan Foster’.”

He called the boy’s death ‘an absolute tragedy that can’t be put into words’.

Obamacare Exemption: None Dare Call It Treason

Posted on August 15, 2013 by Cowboy Byte

Even by the standards of Washington, this is one sick, twisted and deceitful deal. Quite possibly, it is a whole new low, even for the federal government.

Had we innocent, taxpaying citizens not long ago lost our capacity to be outraged by the disgraceful manner in which this place operates, we would already be in all-out political revolt. Against President Obama. Against Democrats in Congress. And, especially, Republicans.

Literally, revolutionary wars have been fought over less.

Last week, while many Americans spent hard-saved money on long overdue vacations, the snakes and weasels inside the federal bureaucracy schemed until they hatched an evil plan. It would feather their own nests with more of your money, protect themselves from the ravages of the laws they foist upon us, desecrate our Constitution and then smear us with insult so putrid it would make a roadside vulture gag.

All the legal, constitutional and parliamentary maneuvering is enough to confuse Albert Einstein, but here is the bottom line: Congress and staff managed to get themselves exempted from one of the most punishing aspects of Obamacare.

Obama Gives Congress Obamacare Relief – Illegally

08/16/2013

“Heavens, I have staff who don’t make much money. This would be a really big bite for them.”

That could be any employer talking about the costs of Obamacare. But it’s a Member of Congress—who’s happy the President will soften the blow for him and his employees.

Ironically, when Members of Congress passed Obamacare, they kicked themselves and their staffs out of their current subsidized employer (federal government) coverage.

As Robert Pear, veteran health reporter for The New York Times, noted back in 2010, “If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?”

Now, the Obama Administration says, “No problem.” Congress can keep their health care subsidies ($5,000 for individual coverage or $11,000 for family coverage) and use them in the new Obamacare exchanges.

In a surprise to no one, the President doesn’t actually have legal authority to do that.

Heritage’s Ed Haislmaier explained in detail how the Administration twisted its interpretation of the law to fix Congress’s little problem. As he put it, “It was bad enough that Congress had to pass the law to find out what was in it. Now, the Administration is ignoring the law when they don’t like what they find.”

Obamacare is riddled with problems—but the Administration is only trying to fix the ones that create political problems for the President.

That’s why it delayed the employer mandate—hoping fewer employers would drop coverage before the next election.

Now, to get Congress off its back, the Administration is fixing the problem Congress created—so that lawmakers don’t have to vote to fix their own mess.

Unfortunately, it’s still a mess for the rest of us.
If you think the rest of us shouldn’t be saddled with this unfair, unaffordable, and unworkable law either, join the chorus to Defund Obamacare.

Russian TV Anchor Comes Out as Gay On the Air, Gets Fired

By Variety Staff | Variety – 1 hour 29 minutes ago

Russian anchor Anton Krasovsky was fired for coming out on live TV earlier this year.

“I’m gay, and I’m just the same person as you, my dear audience, as President Putin, as Prime Minister Medvedev and the deputies of our Duma,” he said.

According to an interview with Snob.ru, Krasovsky was reportedly fired from KontrTV, a government-backed cable network  in December, and the footage of his announcement was quickly deleted from KontrTV’s website and YouTube.

Krasovsky was also a founder of the cable network.

“Somebody should do it,” he told CNN earlier this week. “I decided it’s time to be open for me. That’s it.”

While the anchor’s firing happened earlier this year, his story is grabbing the attention of the media now that Russia’s antigay law has passed and is being strictly enforced.

“They immediately blocked all my corporative accounts, my email. Literally immediately, overnight,” Krasovsky told Snob.ru. “They deleted not only my face from the website, but also all of my TV shows, as if I’d never really existed.”

He said after making the announcement toward the end of his newscast,  the audience and the crew applauded.

Health and Medical History of President

Maladieschildhood infections · infectious exposures ·minor childhood travails · forearm laceration ·cigarettes · drug use · traveler’s diarrhea · snores? ·head cold · physician’s letter 2008 · exercises · height & weight · · Odds & Ends · · Resources

 
 

Maladies and Conditions

 
childhood infections

Had measles and chicken pox while living in Indonesia 3a.

 
infectious exposures

Exposed to multiple animals while living in Indonesia, including a New Guinean ape, chickens, ducks, birds, dogs, and crocodiles 3b. He also was exposed to human diseases: scurvy, polio, leprosy, and a man with gaping hole where nose should be (syphilis?) 3c. Had an “endless series of shots” before going to Indonesia for the first time3d. Comment: Who made these diagnoses?

  
minor childhood travails

Developed an “egg-size lump on the side of my head” after another boy struck him with a rock 3e.

Acne 3f.

 
forearm laceration

Ran into barbed wire while mudsliding in Indonesia. One of his forearms was lacerated from wrist to elbow, and required 20 stitches. “An ugly scar” remains. 3g

 
cigarettes

Obama was smoking cigarettes in high school 3h. He continued smoking afterwards 3i. He talked about quitting in 1988, but this may have been in jest 3j. He has [tried to] quit several times over the years MORE 5.

While running for President in 2008, he said he would quit, and that he was chewing Nicorette. His wife disclosed that, in exchange for giving her permission for him to run, she required that he quit 2. According to a February 2008 report, he quit smoking “several weeks” earlier 2.

Comment: Obama’s total exposure to cigarettes, measured in “pack-years,” has not been released. Any competent physician would elicit this information from the patient. It is so important that some physicians have called it a new “vital sign” (that’s silly, but it makes the point). The quantified smoking exposure is important, among other reasons, in estimating the risk of various diseases. Although it appears as if the information was deliberately suppressed, I hope a reader can supply a pointer to the data.

 
drug use

Used marijuana and “blow” (cocaine) in high school. He was dissuaded from injecting heroin by the fear that an air bubble might be injected, which would travel to his heart and stop it 3h.

  
traveler’s diarrhea

Developed diarrhea while visiting Kenya, circa 1988. A relative gave him an herbal preparation as treatment 3k. Obama did not report if it was effective.

 
snores?

Obama describes his half-sister Auma saying to someone: “My brother, I think he snores” 3l. From the context of the story, it is possible the half-sister was making this up, as a joke.

 
head cold

Developed in Dallas in late February 2008 6.

 
physician’s letter 2008

While running for the Presidency in 2008, Obama released a one-page letter from his physician, Dr. David L. Scheiner, summarizing 21 years of medical history MORE 5. The letter offers reassuring statements about Obama’s blood pressure, cholesterol profile, electrocardiogram, and basic blood tests, including prostate specific antigen.

Comment: There is nothing inherently wrong with summarizing 21 years of medical history on one page — if the patient has been healthy. Even so, this letter leaves a bad taste in Dr. Zebra’s mouth, for several reasons: (1) It is undated. Putting a date on a document is as automatic as breathing for a physician. Why was there no date? (2) The characterization of “intermittent” smoking is unprofessional. Physicians speak in terms of “pack-years” of smoking. (3) The statement that Obama maintains a “good intake” of fluids rings false. Except for patients with various diseases, there is no call to measure fluid intake. It sounds like the physician was trying to fill space.

  
exercises

Is conscientious about exercising, “often jogging three miles,” according to a 2008 letter from his physician MORE 5. Most of the press reports during the 2008 campaign, however, centered on his basketball playing. He was on his high school’s basketball team 3f.

 
height & weight

Obama is 6 feet 2 inches tall, and weighs 165 pounds 1. He wears size 13 1/2 bowling shoes 4.

Odds & Ends

  • Obama’s extensive family tree has been summarized graphically MORE. His family history on his father’s side is notable for intelligence, temper, and four fatal/serious motor vehicle accidents. Obama’s father was killed in one of these accidents.
  • Weighed 8 lb 2 oz at birth 3m.
  • Writes with his left hand. [Observed on inauguration day.]

Obama health summary

From NBC’s Mark Murray and Domenico Montanaro
The Obama campaign has released a summary of Obama’s health records. This comes almost a week after McCain made his health records available to a handful of reporters.

Obama’s physician writes that Obama’s biggest health risks are his history of smoking and a family history of cancer.

“In short, his examination showed him to be in excellent health,” Dr. David L. Scheiner writes. “Senator Barack Obama is in overall good physical and mental health needed to maintain the resiliency required in the Office of President.” 

Here’s the full letter:

 

DAVID L. SCHEINER, M.D.
Hyde Park Associates in Medicine, Ltd.
1515 East 52nd Place, Chicago, IL 60615

 

To Whom It May Concern:

I am David L. Scheiner, a board certified general internist licensed to practice in the State of Illinois. I am on staff at the University of Chicago Hospitals and Rush University Medical Center. I have been Senator Barack Obama’s primary care physician since March 23, 1987. The following is a summary of his medical records for the past 21 years.

 

During that period of time, Senator Obama has been in excellent health. He has been seen regularly for medical checkups and various minor problems such as upper respiratory infections, skin rashes and minor injuries.

His family history is pertinent for his mother’s death from ovarian cancer and grandfather who died of prostate cancer. His own history included intermittent cigarette smoking. He has quit this practice on several occasions and is currently using Nicorette gum with success. 

Senator Obama’s last medical checkup was on January 15, 2007; he had no complaints. He exercised regularly often jogging three miles. His diet was balanced with good intake of roughage and fluids. A complete review of systems was unremarkable. On physical examination, his blood pressure was 90/60 and pulse 60/minute. His build was lean and muscular with no excess body fat. His physical examination was completely normal.

Laboratory studies included triglycerides of 44(normal under 150), cholesterol 173 (normal under 200), HDL 68 (normal over 40), and LDL 96 (normal under 130). Chem 24, urinalysis and CBC were normal, PSA was 0.6, very good. An EKG was normal.

Sincerely,

David L. Scheiner, M.D.
