Eminent Domain and our future Chinese masters

By the Editor-in-Chief – CentrePointNews

The blogosphere is alive today with talk and rumour about the Obama Administration’s alleged deal allowing the Red Chinese to secure their loans to the United States with eminent domain rights. 

Under the provisions of the deal reported by both the DC Republican Examiner’s Bill Dupray and radio host Hal Turner, the Obama Administration has given the Chinese a blank check to seize American property as collateral if the U. S. defaults on its loans from the Chinese.  More HERE

Like the editors at CentrePointNews, we are trying to either confirm or deny this story.  Are we being sold out to the Chinese or is this some great conspiracy circulating on the ‘net?   We’ll check back with CentrePointNews for the latest updates.

Mexico: The Third War

By Fred Burton and Scott Stewart – from Stratfor.com

Mexico has pretty much always been a rough-and-tumble place. In recent years, however, the security environment has deteriorated rapidly, and parts of the country have become incredibly violent. It is now common to see military weaponry such as fragmentation grenades and assault rifles used almost daily in attacks.

In fact, just last week we noted two separate strings of grenade attacks directed against police in Durango and Michoacan states. In the Michoacan incident, police in Uruapan and Lazaro Cardenas were targeted by three grenade attacks during a 12-hour period. Then on Feb. 17, a major firefight occurred just across the border from the United States in Reynosa, when Mexican authorities attempted to apprehend several armed men seen riding in a vehicle. The men fled to a nearby residence and engaged the pursuing police with gunfire, hand grenades and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs). After the incident, in which five cartel gunmen were killed and several gunmen, cops, soldiers and civilians were wounded, authorities recovered a 60 mm mortar, five RPG rounds and two fragmentation grenades.

Obama and the Treatment of Terrorist Suspects

By Fred Burton and Ben West – from Stratfor.com

U.S. President Barack Obama signed an executive order Feb. 1 approving the continued use of renditions by the CIA. The order seems to go against Obama’s campaign promises to improve the image of the United States abroad, as renditions under the Bush administration had drawn criticism worldwide, especially from members of the European Union. The executive order does not necessarily mean that renditions and other tactics for dealing with terrorist suspects will proceed unchanged, however.

Obama came into office promising changes in the way the United States combats terrorism. One of these changes was a new emphasis on legal processes and a shift away from controversial methods of treating terrorist suspects, like rendition, harsh interrogation techniques and secret prisons. The Obama administration can and will roll back some of these tactics, as demonstrated by the president’s Jan. 22 order to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. But some will continue.

Economic Stimulous Package. What you will hear IS factually correct
and it will astound you!

Of course we have the latest from FOX News and follow up Frank
Salvato’s interview with Ryan Mauro from the Christian Action Network.
Ryan is a National Security Researcher and the founder of World
Threats.com

What you will hear from Ryan is factually correct and entails
discussion about Jamaat ul Fuqra, an Islamic Terrorist Group who has a
reported 35 facilities inside the United States…

This may seem unfathomable but the evidence is irrefutable as Sheik
Muburak Gilano professes on his Solders of Allah Video, “We are
fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots
and its roots are in America,” says the Sheik…

This is MUST hearing for all those and especially those who ‘doubt’
that they ‘walk amongst us’…

Today’s show will wake your conscience up and hopefully you’ll realize
we can’t make ‘changes’ to our National and Homeland Security that
will make us any less vigilant in the fight against Global
Terrorism…

Get in on knowing what others won’t unless they tune in to hear “The
Captain’s AMERICA” Radio Show, heard around the World and across
America…

God Bless our brave Military men and women keeping all of us FREE and
SAFE!

Exclusive: Common Sense or Frog’s Leg Pie?

With the new administration nearly running out of ink signing this bizarre executive order and that outside-the-mainstream executive order, I have concluded that what is missing in President Obama’s program is good, middle-American common sense.

It is not surprising that a career politician – whose professional claim to fame is “community organizer,” which is nothing more than a dressed-up label for a Left-wing activist who seeks to revolt – has an agenda that defies such sensibility. As a mom concerned about her child’s future, a wife concerned about her husband’s job and a daughter of a legal immigrant who struggled, working two jobs, to raise five children without government assistance, I have a few suggestions for the new president. None of these will guarantee me a high ranking political appointment but they might bring this man back down to earth as we know it, here in the United States.   Read the rest of my latest article on FamilySecurityMatters HERE
