Obama Wants Arizona Judged by Human Rights Offender

Map of Cameroon

If the Obama administration has its way, Arizona’s immigration law will be evaluated by a nation the State Department considers a human rights abuser.

Barack Obama included a reference to the Arizona law in America’s first-ever report to the UN Human Rights Council earlier this month. On November 5, a troika of nations composed of Japan, France, and Cameroon will hear the case against the United States and suggest a plan of action for the administration  to follow before its re-evaluation in four years. However, the State Department records that Cameroon is guilty of numerous human rights violations including torture, suppression of the press, child labor, and female genital mutilation.

The State Department’s 2009 Human Rights Report on Cameroon records the African nation’s violent history:

Video of the Day: Obama Pursued Defeat in Iraq

Barack Obama  will address the nation this evening about the progress made in Iraq and his transition of U.S. forces to a less prominent role. He will want to avoid mentioning the fact that he opposed the surge policy that pacified this once raging battlefront. As the video below demonstrates, not everyone has forgotten.

Video: AZ Gov Learned of UN Report from Us

It’s not bad enough the Obama administration has hauled Arizona before the United Nations “Human Rights Council” for its overwhelmingly popular immigration law. Last night, Governor Jan Brewer told Greta Van Susteren the administration did not have the decency to tell her the state’s lawmakers had been put on the same level as Cuban jailers and North Korean torturers. Instead, Brewer said she learned about the lawsuit “on the internet.”

Since we broke the story, that means ultimately she learned about it from us. This development means two things.

Obama’s Ed Secretary Recruits Sharpton’s Protesters

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

Last weekend, Al Sharpton hoped to outshine Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally with a left-wing, racial grievance gathering of his own. Like Recovery Summer or the health care town hall meetings (which were intended to build support for ObamaCare), it fell short of the mark. But the Obama administration did everything it could — perhaps more than it could legally — to to turn people out for Fat Albert.

The Washington Examiner obtained an e-mail sent last Wednesday by Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to more than 4,000 federal employees that began, “ED [Education Department] staff are invited to join Secretary Arne Duncan, the Reverend Al Sharpton, and other leaders on Saturday, Aug. 28, for the ‘Reclaim the Dream’ rally and march.”

The counter-protest was designed to cast Glenn Beck and his half-million followers as racists, while reassembling Barack Obama’s voting coalition for the 2010 midterms. Sharpton told his followers that Republicans:

think we showed up [to vote] in 2008 and that we won’t show up again. But we know how to sucker-punch, and we’re coming out again in 2010.

Minorities play a crucial role in the Democratic Party, even more so in the election of Barack Obama. The president raised eyebrows in April when he released a video calling on “young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again.” (Notice who’s missing from that list?)

Coincidentally, in June the Democratic Party launched a $50 million “Vote 2010″ campaign “to see whether we can bring out voters whose only previous vote was in 2008,” according to

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman, Rep. Chris Van Hollen. He’s also trying to recruit many who never voted before. The Washington Post reports:

The party plans to embark on a massive new program this fall to register college students, including many who volunteered for Obama as high school students but were too young to vote.

It is working barbershops and beauty salons in African American communities, and organizing events around the World Cup to reach out to Latinos. Every Wednesday in California, party organizers and volunteers attend naturalization ceremonies.

Sharpton’s event was a two-fer: a hate rally against one of the administration’s most insightful critics and a pep talk to turn out potential Democratic voters.

Incredibly, a Dept. of Education employee defended Duncan’s appearance by saying, “This was a back-to-school event.”

Best-Seller: Obama Has Not Proved Birthplace

WorldNetDaily

While there is no evidence he was born overseas, President Obama has not released sufficient documentation to prove his place of birth, conclude the authors of a recently released book.

An investigation by the authors found the sole birth documentation released by the president, a Certification of Live Birth, or COLB, generated in 2007 by the state of Hawaii, does not definitively establish Obama’s origin.

The investigation also debunked various claims that Obama was born in Kenya.

With nearly 900 endnotes, the book, “The Manchurian President: Barack Obama’s Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists,” was written by WND senior reporter Aaron Klein and researcher Brenda J. Elliott.

After the release of a COLB, made available online during the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama and his team then claimed, and continue to claim, that Obama had released his birth certificate.

Obama said in an interview aired yesterday with NBC “Nightly News,” “I can’t spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.”
