Frank Sinatra Made A Dirty Movie At 19, Says New Biography

John Thomas Didymus -- Digital Journal



A new biography of Frank Sinatra alleges that at 19, struggling to get his singing career started, he agreed to appear in a porn film. According to "Frank Sinatra, The Boudoir Singer: All the Gossip Unfit to Print from the Glory Days of Ol' Blue Eyes," he was paid $100 for his part in the 1934 movie "The Masked Bandit." The author of Sinatra's new biography, Darwin Porter, says he got the information from British actor Peter Lawford, a member of Frank Sinatra's gang of friends in the 1960s, the Rat Pack. The Rat Pack included Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. According to Peter Lawford's story, Sammy Davis Jr., who collected porn movies, had a copy of Frank Sinatra's movie.

Obama's Strategic Misfires Behind The Mess That U.S. Is In, Says Bill Clinton In New Book

Associated Press



Former President Bill Clinton says in a new book that last summer's political fight over raising the US debt ceiling made the nation look "weak and confused" overseas and he doesn't know why President Barack Obama didn't seek a hike in the limit when Democrats still controlled both houses of Congress. He says the final deal did little to create jobs or solve the longer-term debt crisis. In his book, "Back to Work: Why We Need Smart Government for a Strong Economy," Clinton analyses the factors that contributed to the nation's current economic woes and offers several policy prescriptions he says would create jobs and make the US more competitive.

Was Vincent Van Gogh Murdered?

Christina Caron -- ABC News (US)



Video AND TEXT. Experts have said for more than 100 years that post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh walked to a wheat field on July 27, 1890, shot himself in the chest with a pistol, then died two days later in his room at the age of 37. But "Van Gogh: The Life," a new book by Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith -- who were honored in 1991 for a biography about American painter Jackson Pollock -- argues the troubled artist might have been murdered. The authors questioned why (and how) the Dutch artist would have obtained a gun, and pointed out that the gun was never found. They also challenged the idea that Van Gogh could have walked all the way back to his room in Auvers-sur-Oise, northwest of Paris, with a serious injury.

Zorianna Kit -- Reuters



It was a fairy tale romance that turned in to a stormy marriage, and now Dyan Cannon has chronicled her relationship with Hollywood legend Cary Grant in her new book, "Dear Cary: My Life with Cary Grant." With an age difference of over 30 years, the duo had a magical courtship in the 1960s that eventually gave way to the dark side of Grant after they were engaged. Following three years of marriage and not long after the birth of their daughter Jennifer, the couple divorced and Cannon suffered a nervous breakdown.

 Mountain Man Scares Owners Of Remote Utah Cabins

Brian Skoloff And Paul Foy -- Associated Press

He's eluded authorities for more than five years, a mountain man who roams the wilderness of southern Utah, breaking into remote cabins in winter, living in luxury off hot food, alcohol and coffee before stealing provisions and vanishing into the woods. Investigators have clawed for clues, scouring cabins for fingerprints that match no one and chasing reports of brief encounters only to come up short, always a step behind the mysterious recluse. They've found abandoned camps, dozens of guns, high-end outdoor gear stolen from the homes and trash strewn around the forest floor. But the man authorities say is armed and dangerous and responsible for more than two dozen burglaries has continued to outrun the law across a swath of mountains not far from Zion National Park. He's roamed across 1,000 square miles of rugged wilderness where snow can pile 10 feet deep in winter. And while there have been no violent confrontations, detectives say he's a time bomb. Lately he has been leaving the cabins in disarray and riddled with bullets after defacing religious icons, and a recent note left behind in one cabin warned, "Get off my mountain." ...

 Murder-Suicide Dad Josh Powell Had Cartoon Sex, Incest Images On Computer

Associated Press

Three weeks before Josh Powell killed himself and kids in a violent inferno, Utah authorities disclosed to social workers for the first time that his computer once contained some 400 images of cartoon sex and incest. Investigators had initially told Washington state officials that there were only a half-dozen images, seized in 2009, but the social worker tasked with keeping the kids safe sent off a note to a psychologist saying "it is now clear there are many more images than initially indicated." Many of the approximately 400 images described in documents released under Washington state public records laws Friday included sexual depictions of popular cartoons, including child-focused characters such as Rugrats, Dennis the Menace and SpongeBob SquarePants. Another 15 images showed 3-D depictions of sex involving parents and their children. ...

The allegation came after days of strong accusations by Israel that Iran was behind the botched plot as well as two others in India and the former Soviet republic of Georgia this week. Iran has denied the charges. Citing the similarity of bombs used in New Delhi and Tbilisi, national police chief Gen. Prewpan Dhamapong said that Thai authorities now "know for certain that (the target) was Israeli diplomats." ...

 Brain Scans Might Spot Autism As Early As 6 Months Of Age

Steven Reinberg -- HealthDay News

Although early signs of autism, such as problems communicating and repetitive behaviors, can often be seen as early as 1 year, processes in the brain linked to communication are seemingly being altered months earlier, University of North Carolina researchers report. "We know that there is evidence that autism affects the ability of different brain regions to communicate with each other. This study confirms that this atypical brain development begins very early in life," said study co-author Geri Dawson, the chief science officer at Autism Speaks. "These findings raise the possibility of developing imaging markers that could detect risk for autism in advance of actual symptoms, and [to] begin treatment before symptoms begin," she said. ...

YEST The Spice Turmeric Could Help Ward Off Dementia

Telegraph (UK)

Tests on fruit flies found that those given curcumin, the key chemical in turmeric, lived 75 per cent longer. The findings, published in the journal PLoS One, could help explain why rates of dementia are lower among the elderly in India than in their Western peers. Alzheimer's is linked to the build-up of protein in the brain called amyloid plaques damaging the wiring. Curcumin did not dissolve the plaque, but accelerated the formation of nerve fibres by reducing the amount of their precursor forms, known as oligomers, from which they were formed. Prof Per Hammarstrom, of Linkoping University in Sweden, said: "The results confirm our belief that it is the oligomers that are most harmful to the nerve cells." ...

An Inconvenient Lie

YEST America's "Green" Enemies Gear Up Again

Alan Caruba -- Family Security Matters

It was good news that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission approved the nation's first nuclear power plants on February 9th, clearing the way for the construction of two reactors by Southern Company at its Plant Vogtle site near Atlanta, Georgia. The bad news is that these are the first new nuclear plants since 1978! In a nation with a growing population and increasing need for electricity to power homes and businesses, it is nothing less than insane to not include nuclear energy in the mix of providers. Environmentalists immediately attacked the announcement using the usual scare campaigns. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has waged a long war on the provision of energy; most recently with the imposition of its Utility MACT rule on plant carbon dioxide (CO2) and mercury emissions, neither of which pose any threat. Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, decried the rule as one "intended to undermine the viability of coal, one of our country's most abundant and reliable energy sources." ...

Study Says Electric Vehicles Pollute More Than Gas-Powered

Amir Khan -- International Business Times

The study examined 34 major Chinese cities and found that electric cars caused 19 times more particulate matter pollution, which consists of acids, organic chemicals, metals, and dust, than gasoline cars. "An implicit assumption has been that air quality and health impacts are lower for electric vehicles than for conventional vehicles," Chris Cherry, assistant professor in civil and environmental engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and one of the study's co-authors, told Eurekalert. "Our findings challenge that by comparing what is emitted by vehicle use to what people are actually exposed to." ...

"An Inconsistent Truth" Exposes Al Gore's Agenda

Bob Unruh -- WND

Video AND TEXT. Predicted by those who have adopted Al Gore's theories about global warming are parched crop fields, wars over remaining traces of water, hurricanes, drought, floods, heat waves, cold waves, desertification, volcano eruptions, food shortages and smog. His "Inconvenient Truth" movie released in 2006 casts as inevitable such disasters should people around the globe not choose to follow his agenda of eliminating the use of fossil fuels and such. But there's a new road bump in Gore's campaign, a movie deliberately named "An Inconsistent Truth" that undermines Gore's ideas, and for two weeks straight it was the top movie as measured by per screen gross revenue. "Many people believe in man-made global warming but they don't know why," the movie questions. "This is one of the most important issues of our day, yet the average American knows so very little about what's really going on. Is that by design? Who stands to make billions off cap-and-trade legislation? Why do those who raise their voices the loudest lead the most wasteful lifestyles? Is carbon dioxide really a pollutant or is it a harmless gas that's essential to life here on Earth?" The trailer for the film is embedded in the liked article. ...

Crank Up Your Gas Guzzling SUVs: Scientists Say Human Emissions Of Carbon Dioxide Will Defer The Next Ice Age

Richard Black -- BBC News (UK)

The root causes of the transitions from Ice Age to interglacial and back again are the subtle variations in the Earth's orbit known as the Milankovitch cycles, after the Serbian scientist Milutin Milankovic who described the effect nearly 100 years ago. The variations include the eccentricity of the Earth's orbit around the Sun, the degree to which its axis is inclined, and the slow rotation of its axis. These all take place on timescales of tens of thousands of years. On their own, they are not enough to cause the global temperature difference of about 10C between Ice Age and interglacial. The initial small changes are amplified by various factors including the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as warming begins, and absorption of the gas by the oceans as the ice re-forms. "At current levels of CO2, even if emissions stopped now we'd probably have a long interglacial duration determined by whatever long-term processes could kick in and bring [atmospheric] CO2 down," said Luke Skinner from Cambridge University. ...

"The Stink Of Intellectual Corruption Is Overpowering"

Rob Waugh -- Daily Mail (UK)

Following on from the original "climategate" emails of 2009, the new package appears to show systematic suppression of evidence, and even publication of reports that scientists knew to to be based on flawed approaches. And, not only do the emails paint a picture of scientists manipulating data, government employees at the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) are also implicated. The emails paint a clear picture of scientists selectively using data, and colluding with politicians to misuse scientific information. Clive Crook, a commentator for the Atlantic, who described the earlier inquiries into the Climategate emails as "ineffectual" and "mealy mouthed," reportedly said, "The closed-mindedness of these supposed men of science, their willingness to go to any lengths to defend a preconceived message, is surprising even to me.

Fresh Round Of Hacked Climate Science Emails Leaked Online

Leo Hickman -- Guardian (UK)

A fresh bunch of private emails exchanged between leading climate scientists throughout the last decade was released online on Tuesday. The unauthorized publication is an apparent attempt to repeat the impact of a similar release of emails on the eve of the Copenhagen climate summit in late 2009. The initial email dump was apparently timed to disrupt the Copenhagen climate talks. It prompted three official inquiries in the UK and two in the US into the working practices of climate scientists. Although these were critical of the scientists' handling of Freedom of Information Act requests and lack of openness they did not find fault with the climate change science they had produced. The emails appear to be genuine, but the University of East Anglia said the "sheer volume of material" meant it was not yet able to confirm that they were. One of the emailers, the climate scientist Prof Michael Mann, has confirmed that he believes they are his messages. The lack of any emails post-dating the 2009 release suggests that they were obtained at the same time, but held back. Their release now suggests they are intended to cause maximum impact before the upcoming climate summit in Durban which starts on Monday. ...

Certifi-Gate!

Sheriff Joe Arpaio To Release Findings On Obama's Eligibility

Jerome R. Corsi -- WND

Following a Georgia judge's ruling that Barack Obama is eligible to be on the state's 2012 Democratic Party presidential ballot, the front lines in the continuing eligibility battle are being fought in Arizona. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said his office has scheduled a news conference in Phoenix for March 1 to release findings of the Cold Case Posse that has been investigating Barack Obama's birth certificate and eligibility to be president. Arpaio declined to release any of the posse's conclusions in advance of the press conference, although he is on record saying the findings may be "shocking" to many. ...

Motion Filed To Cite Obama For Contempt Of Court

Bob Unruh -- WND

A Georgia resident contending Barack Obama is ineligible for the state's 2012 presidential election ballot is asking that a court cite him with contempt. In a motion filed in the case pending before Georgia Administrative Law Judge Michael Malihi, attorney Van Irion, representing David P. Weldon, urged the court not to overlook the fact that Obama had been subpoenaed for last week's hearing. Obama's attorney, he pointed out, acknowledged the subpoena by asking that it be quashed. But when the judge refused his request, he told a state elections official he would not participate. "Plaintiff Weldon moves this court to refer an order for contempt to the Superior Court for confirmation that defendant Obama is in contempt of court," the motions says. "Grounds for this motion are that defendant Obama willfully defied this court's order to appear and testify during this court's hearing of January 26." ...

Obama Snubbs Hearing; Judge Expected To Disqualify Obama As A Candidate

Bob Unruh -- WND

"That President Obama's attorneys didn't show respect for the court, the citizens, the secretary of state, and the statutes of Georgia reveals the true character of the administration as being completely and utterly against state's rights," said attorney Leo Donofrio. "The federal government is growing out of control with every administration and this action today is a loud announcement that this administration is going to do what it likes, and you can imagine that their response to this judiciary would be exactly the same if this had been the U.S. Supreme Court." Donofrio said if Georgia does decide to keep Obama off its state election ballots, he won't appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, "because if he were to lose there, his entire administration would be void, including his appointments to the Supreme Court." "My personal belief is that if the U.S. Supreme Court held that he was ineligible, he might simply ignore the ruling, and test the will of the nation, just as he is testing the will of the state of Georgia," he continued. ...

Obama Eligibility Hearing Broadcast Live

Joe Kovacs -- WND

A political action committee which believes Barack Obama is not legally qualified for U.S. president plans a live broadcast of tomorrow's hotly anticipated court hearing in Atlanta regarding Obama's eligibility. The Article II Super PAC says it will provide uncensored, gavel-to-gavel video coverage of the event beginning at 9 a.m. Eastern at this online address. Based in Simi Valley, Calif., the PAC says it decided to act out of a sense of frustration, since most national news outlets have been ignoring the constitutional mandate that presidents be a "natural-born citizen," which the PAC maintains is a person who is a child of two U.S. citizen parents. ...

Judge Whacks Obama In Eligibility Case

Bob Unruh -- WND

A Georgia judge has refused a demand from Barack Obama to quash a subpoena to appear at a series of administration hearings Jan. 26 at which residents of the state are challenging, as allowed under a state law, his name on the 2012 presidential ballot. Separately, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona said that he also had gotten a subpoena to be at the hearings in Georgia. He said the goal apparently is to ask him about his Cold Case Posse investigation of Obama's eligiblity, but he said since the investigation remains open, he wouldn't be able to say much about it. Citizens bringing the complaints include David Farrar, Leah Lax, Cody Judy, Thomas Malaren and Laurie Roth, represented by Taitz; David Weldon represented by attorney Van R. Irion of Liberty Legal Foundation; and Carl Swensson and Kevin Richard Powell, represented by J. Mark Hatfield. Hatfield also had filed with the court a "Notice to Produce" asking for Obama's documents and records. He wants one of the two original certified copies of Obama's long-form birth certificate. ...

Obama Argues Against Appearing At Eligibility Hearing

Bob Unruh -- WND

Barack Obama has outlined a defense strategy for a multitude of state-level challenges to his candidacy on the 2012 presidential ballot in a Georgia case that is scheduled to come before a judge later this month: simply asseret that states have nothing to do with the eligibility of presidential candidates. "Presidential electors and Congress, not the state of Georgia, hold the constitutional responsibility for determining the qualifications of presidential candidates," Obama's lawyer argues in a motion to quash a subpoena for him to appear at the hearings Jan. 26. It is states, usually through the office of secretary of state, that run elections, not the federal government. The national election is simply a compilation of the results of the individual elections within states. State law also grants the secretary of state and any "elector who is eligible to vote for a candidate" in the state the authority to raise a challenge to a candidate's qualifications, the judge determined. ...

Former Presidential Candidate Files Appeal In Obama Eligibility Case

Bob Unruh -- WND

A man who was on the American Independent Party's presidential ticket in California in 2008 as well as a certified elector for the party have asked a full panel of a federal appeals court to hear their claim that Barack Obama wasn't qualified to be president, stacking the election unfairly against qualified candidates. "If Mr. Obama is, in fact, ineligible for the office of president of the United States, it is insufficient that he received a majority of the Electoral College votes and has served for some time in the office, because ineligibility is not vacated by votes, else the Constitution could be amended contrary to the Constitution's own dictates," the brief said. ...

Court Rules Obama Must Prove "Constitutional" Eligiblity

Bob Unruh -- WND

For the first time in dozens of court cases challenging Barack Obama's eligibility to be president, a judge has ruled that Obama must, in order to be a candidate on the Georgia ballot for president in 2012, meet the constitutional demands for candidates for the office. A hearing has been scheduled later this month for evidence on the issue that has plagued Obama and his presidency since long before he took office. At issue is the constitutional requirement that a president be a "natural-born citizen." Some allege he was not born in the U.S. as he has claimed and, therefore, is not eligible. Others, including top constitutional expert Herb Titus, contend that the term "natural-born citizen," which is not defined in the Constitution, would have been understood when the document was written to mean the offspring of two U.S. citizens. That argument is supported by a 19th-century U.S. Supreme Court decision Under that standard, Obama could not qualify, because his father, as identified on the "Certificate of Live Birth" image released by the White House, was a foreign national who came from Kenya to study in the U.S. and never was a citizen. ...

E-Verify Flags Obama's Social Security Number As "Likely Fraudulent"

Jerome R. Corsi -- World Net Daily

A private investigation reveals that the Social Security Number being used by Barack Obama does not pass a check with E-Verify, the electronic system the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has created to verify whether or not prospective employees have the required authorization to work legally in the United States. Over the past few years, the E-Verify system has received national attention because of its ability to determine if prospective employees are illegal immigrants who have entered the United States without the legal authority to work. Entering Obama's Social Security Number into the E-Verify Self Check, the system indicated Obama's Social Security Number produced a mismatch that warranted a visit to the Social Security Administration to investigate the discrepancy. ...

Missing the Plot While Chasing the MacGuffin

by Robert Jay March
Sunday, May 1, 2011

Just as we were about to post the Wednesday, April 27, 2011 issue of MarchReport.com, a bulletin came in to the effect that Barack Obama had finally released his long-form birth certificate. Since it was "press-time," I uploaded the issue, sent out that day's newsletters, and then went to the WhiteHouse.gov web site to download the birth certificate. I revised that day's issue to include the story, with a link to the pdf file of the birth certificate as released by the White House.

Having covered the story that we called "Certifi-Gate" since October 22, 2008, I was relieved that it was finally over ... or, so I thought. I was tired of being called a racist (despite the fact that I myself am racially mixed, being a mix of Polish, Ukrainian and Mongolian ancestry), a right wing conspiracy theorist (despite the fact that the story originated with Linda Starr, a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter and ultra-left-wing zealot who advocated the impeachment of President Bush, the arrest of Harriet Miers, Josh Bolton, and Karl Rove by the U.S. House of Representatives' Sergeant At Arms, and a Radio Left/Daily KOS partisan; and was initially prosecuted by Philip J. Berg, a Democrat, former deputy attorney general of Pennsylvania and former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, who had worked on her campaign). I was sick of the death threats, although those had tapered off in proportion to the decline in Obama's popularity.

After uploading the revised April 27 issue, I took a closer look at the pdf file. Being a computer graphics specialist since 1971, and having made the transition from mainframe to desktop software in 1991, I had worked with Photoshop since version 2 and Illustrator since version 3, I immediately saw evidence of layering in the document. "Oh, Scheißdreck," I said to myself ("Scheißdreck" wasn't the word I used, actually, but some kids read this page, and I'm a father and grandfather myself). The following day I found, unsurprisingly, that others had spotted it as well. I even ran articles and videos over the next couple of days, which described the analysis performed by others.

The layers could be innocent enough, in that some modern scanning software breaks typographic elements into layers to facilitate optical character recognition; but, PhotoShop and Illustrator offer the option of flattening the layers into one. Was the failure to do this the result of a naive operator who was insufficiently familiar with the software, or who simply did not comprehend that the presence of these un-flattened layers would drive those who believed with all their hearts and souls that Obama was a usurper ... a Manchurian Candidate in office ... nuts. Was it simple sloppiness caused by the desire to get this out quickly and embarrass Donald Trump? If so, that sure backfired, having made Trump look like the titan who finally forced Obama's hand. Or, were the layers left in place deliberately, to make it look like the document had been falsified. Was it red-meat for die-hard conspiracy theorists? Was it a new MacGuffin for us to chase, while losing sight of the plot?

Alfred Hitchcock Redux.
With his 1935 film, "The 39 Steps," Alfred Hitchcock popularized the MacGuffin; both the term and the technique. Hitch described the MacGuffin technique as follows in a 1966 interview with François Truffaut:

"It might be a Scottish name, taken from a story about two men in a train. One man says "What's that package up there in the baggage rack?" and the other answers "Oh, that's a MacGuffin." The first one asks "What's a MacGuffin?" "Well," the other man says, "It's an apparatus for trapping lions in the Scottish Highlands." The first man says "But there are no lions in the Scottish Highlands," and the other one answers "Well, then that's no MacGuffin." So you see, a MacGuffin is nothing at all."

The MacGuffin is a person, place or thing that drives the narrative; but, as Hitchcock said in television interviews, "the audience don't care" what it is. I am of the opinion that we have been focusing so intently on tracking down the MacGuffin that we've lost sight of the plot.

Enter Stage Right.
By 2009, Obama had spent in excess of $1.3 Million to prevent his birth certificate from being released, and had succeeded in demonizing everyone who dared ask a question about it.

Enter Donald Trump, and suddenly, Obama releases it without a whimper. The "mainstream media," who as recently as the day before the release, had been saying for years that Obama had already released his birth certificate; that they'd already seen it, and that anyone who questioned Obama's legitimacy was a racist or a loon, suddenly was reporting on the release of his "private, long-form birth certificate" as if it was a mere footnote to the story, rather than the earth-shattering event that it was.

They either could not bring themselves to admit the obvious: that they had been dutifully reporting what the White House told them to report, much as Pravda would have done in the days of the Soviet Union, or they simply could not confront the truth about themselves. The days of reporters wearing out shoe-leather to follow a story where the facts lead have long since been over. This is the day of press-release journalism: A "source" supplies an alleged fact, another "source" confirms it over a three-martini lunch, and that gets reported as fact. The days of Edward R. Murrow, or even Walter Winchell, are over. These are the days of "Ted Baxter," the dim-witted news anchor played by Ted Knight (born Tadeusz Wladyslaw Konopka) on the "Mary Tyler Moore Show," come to life. One of the most valuable lessons learned from the whole Certifi-gate affair is that the "mainstream media," really the commercial media, are completely useless; and, I include Fox News in the bunch; they are simply the least rotten of the bad apples.

Is It Real, Or Is It Memorex?
Frankly, it doesn't matter. We've been "played," but they've shown their hand by going back to the well one too many times.

Why spend, by 2011, in excess of $2 Million to hide something, only to release an apparently tainted version of it when a political opponent was getting traction? In order to answer that, we have to look at what the Obama Administration has done with "ObamaCare"; they're using exactly the same methodology here.

Let me draw you an analogy as a way of easing you into an explanation of the methodology in play here. In the mid 1980's, I saw Geraldine Ferraro on the subway platform at the 71st Street and Continental Avenue station in Queens, N.Y., waiting for the E or F train, both of which stopped there in those days. Having been the first female candidate for Vice President on Walter Mondale's ticket, scrutiny of her husband John Zaccaro's finances contributed to the defeat of the Democrats.

In New York City, you only see celebrities on the subway at two points in their careers: when they're on their way up, and when they're on their way down. In both cases, they're looking for an ego-boost: a "recognition fix." Ferraro was very conspicuously trying to look inconspicuous, if you take my meaning. She was wearing dark glasses, which were very ill-advised on the dimly-lit platform, and was making exaggerated movements, such as pulling her fur collar up to her face, in a faux-attempt to conceal her identity. At that point, her career appeared to be over, and she had no way of knowing that brighter days were ahead. She needed the "recognition fix," and by her movements, sought to assure herself that she was still known and recognized, that she was still a "celebrity."

For three years now, the unreleased birth certificate of Barack Obama has been very conspicuously trying to look inconspicuous. With the help of the Democratic Party's lackeys in the media, the story that should not be talked about was talked about incessantly, making those of us who followed the story look like fools, racists, or both. Never mind that fact that the first candidate whose eligibility under Article II Section 1 of the Constitution (the "natural born" clause) was not Barack Obama, but John McCain. McCain responded by immediately releasing all of his documents, and the Senate responded by passing Senate Resolution 511 , by unanimous consent. The resolution, co-sponsored by then-Senator Barack Obama, recognized that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen, and eligible to run for and, if elected, serve as the President. From the bill: "Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a 'natural born Citizen' under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States."

Is It Hocus Pocus, Or Is It Bogus POTUS?
So, what does any of this have to do with "ObamaCare"? The methodology being used to push "ObamaCare" forward is the very same methodology as that being used vis-à-vis the birth certificate.

On January 31, 2011, senior federal judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida, Roger Vinson ruled that "ObamaCare" was unconstitutional in its entirety because it violates the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Having so ruled, an injunction was unnecessary; the Executive Branch was required cease all enforcement of the law because the law itself had been declared null and void. Nonetheless, the Obama Administration, who's most significant accomplishment thus far has been the new and innovative ways it has discovered to circumvent the Constitution, continued to enforce the unconstitutional "law." On March 3, 2011, Vinson stayed his order, giving the Obama administration seven days to file an appeal; just seven days. In his stay order, Vinson harshly criticized the Obama Administration, saying "It was not expected that they would effectively ignore the order and declaratory judgment for 2-1/2 weeks, continue to implement the act and, only then, file a belated motion to 'clarify.'" By dragging its feet and thus (yet again) circumventing the Constitution, the Obama Administration has effectively bought itself free reign to get "ObamaCare" so embedded in the health care system that it will be impossible to dismantle.

The same logic has been at work all along on the birth certificate. Assuming it's real, as I do, the reason for the long stall is obvious. The term "natural born citizen," at the time of the drafting of the Constitution, was commonly understood to mean the offspring of parents who were natural born citizens at their birth; note the plural: parents.

Obama's birth certificate clearly shows that he is the son of a mother who was an American Citizen, and a father who was a Kenyan Citizen. It is on this basis that attorneys such as Mario Apuzzo have filed litigation to have Obama disqualified. In all of my prior editorials and podcasts, I have made clear that I was not willing to take it this far: if the long-form birth certificate were to be released, and it showed Obama was born in the United States, I would be satisfied. That was, and remains, my position on the issue, but, since I am not a Supreme Court Justice, my opinion carries no legal weight.

This, obviously, is the reason why the birth certificate was withheld for so long. Although I consider it unlikely that a Court that has refused to hear legitimate suits on this issue based on spurious issues of "standing" would disqualify Obama based on the interpretation of Apuzzo, et al., the possibility existed. Thus, the "Mystery of The Birth Certificate" was crafted, to keep it from being released long enough that a disqualification of Obama would cause chaos. Were he to be disqualified, every law he signed would be null-and-void; effectively pocket vetoed. Our gutless Supreme Court would have issued another "one-off" ruling, as it did in the case of Bush v. Gore, where it resolved the 2000 presidential election in favor of George W. Bush, declaring that the ruling was "limited to the present circumstances."

Fooled Me Once, Shame on You; Fooled Me Twice, Shame On Me.
I am open to the possibility that the birth certificate released is a forgery, but I seriously doubt it. I am of the opinion that the birth certificate released is real, and that the layers that appear are a result of how modern scanning software scans documents. I also believe that the layers were not flattened to give renewed life to the MacGuffin we've been chasing for three years.

Until Wednesday, the preponderance of evidence lead to the conclusion that Obama had something to hide. Release of the certificate tips the scales. The preponderance of evidence now leads to the belief that he hid the certificate to prevent a challenge based on his father's nationality.

Continuing to pursue the birth certificate issue is a losing proposition, and will guarantee a second term to Barack Obama. It will make it look like all of the accusations of racism and conspiracy theories were correct, and will tarnish any candidate who pursues it.

About a decade ago, I took a vow to myself that I would not lie to anyone about anything, ever. It was a logical progression of a vow I took in the mid-1970's, when my daughter was born: that I would never lie to her about anything, ever. I never did, not even about Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny. Approximately 10 years ago, my child by then being an adult and on her own, and anyone else I had to protect having passed on, I decided to risk applying that to my dealings with everyone. Over and over again, I have paid a very high price for doing so, but maintain that vow to this day in all my dealings.

In that spirit, it's time to admit that we were "had" by a master practitioner of deep-dish Chicago politics. We have nothing to be ashamed of. We followed the facts where they led. That they led exactly where Obama wanted them to lead is no fault of ours. Fooled me once, shame on you; fooled me twice, shame on me. As "The Who" suggested, "Don't get fooled again"

MarchReport.com will continue to cover developments in the Certifi-Gate issue, and will follow the facts where they lead, as we have always done; but, we will do so from the perspective cited above.

MarchReport.com is hardly the most important outlet covering this story, but the White House reads our stuff anyway. In the spirit of respect for an adversary, I request that whomever at the White House is tasked with doing so relay this message: "Well played, Mr. President."

 Romney Campaign Says Ohio Endorser Defecting To Santorum "Not Significant"

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, once a high-profile Ohio supporter of Mitt Romney, defected to Rick Santorum's campaign Friday, dealing a blow to the former Massachusetts Governor in the important Super Tuesday state. Romney's camp fought back in a conference call, attacking both DeWine and Santorum and calling the endorsement irrelevant. DeWine made the announcement Friday. Preempting the press conference, the Romney campaign held a conference call with former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu, Ohio Rep. Mike Turner, and Hamilton County, Ohio Commissioner Greg Hartmann to attack Santorum and his newest backer. DeWine's flip, Sununu argued, wouldn't change anything. ...

YEST Mitt Romney Can't Count On Home-State Advantage In Michigan

Paul West -- Los Angeles Times

Mitt Romney left his native Michigan behind 46 years ago. He has returned repeatedly during a presidential pursuit that is now in its sixth year, but rarely with the desperation evinced now. "Michigan's been my home, and this is personal," Romney says in a new TV ad that features vintage black-and-white photos, including one of a teen-aged Mitt and his square-jawed father, the state's late governor, George Romney. The candidate was speaking of the state's economic distress, but might as well have been addressing his presidential campaign, whose fate could rest on whether he beats back a strong challenge by his newest chief opponent, Rick Santorum, in the state's Feb. 28 primary. Evoking home-state memories proved effective when Romney won the Republican primary four years ago, but this year's effort comes with a strategic twist. Romney won in 2008 with lopsided support from the most conservative quarter of the GOP electorate, against the more moderate John McCain. This time, Romney's support is weakest among self-described "very conservative" Republicans, who see him as too moderate. ...

"Months from now, if that's the case, all bets are off as to who it will be, willing to offer up themselves up in their name in service to their country. I would do whatever I could to help." Given that Palin has faded from the political scene in recent months, it could provide her a chance to return to relevance. In theory. ...

YEST What Happens If Greece Doesn't Get A Bailout?

Michael Schuman -- Time Magazine

After the Greek parliament on Sunday passed yet another package of austerity measures demanded by its euro-zone neighbors -- this one worth $4.4 billion -- the path seemed clear to finalizing a long-delayed, second bailout of the country totaling $170 billion. Well, it turns out the Greek vote wasn't enough to satisfy skeptical euro-zone leaders. Instead of pinning down the bailout details, European finance ministries have reopened the entire plan to bail out Greece. A debate is now raging among euro-zone countries over whether or not a second bailout makes any sense at all. The basic problem apparently is that there is a growing belief in some northern euro members -- such as Germany and Finland -- that Greece's politicians will never be capable of implementing reforms, whatever promises are made now, so a new bailout would end up being a waste of money. German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble publicly questioned the commitment of Greece's politicians to reform after an upcoming election. ...

 Charlie Chaplin's Real Name And Birthplace Still A Mystery; Stumps Brit Spooks

Michael Holden -- Irish Examiner (IE)

The real name and birthplace of Charlie Chaplin is shrouded in mystery, Britain's domestic spy agency concluded after a probe into US claims he was a communist sympathiser, newly released documents reveal. British MI5 agents were asked in 1952 to investigate Chaplin's background by the FBI, which believed he was using an alias and that his real name was Israel Thornstein, over long-running US suspicions about the actor's left-wing leanings. Chaplin, one of Hollywood's first and greatest stars famed for his "Little Tramp" character, believed he was born on Apr 16, 1889, in south London. Christopher Andrew, the official historian of MI5, said evidence that emerged last year suggested Chaplin was born in a caravan belonging to a woman known as "the Gypsy Queen" in central England and his mother was a member of what is now referred to as "the Travelling community." From the 1920s, US authorities suspected him of being a communist supporter, a claim he always denied. He was refused a re-entry permit when he left the US in 1953 and went to live in Switzerland. ...

YEST Poet Kola Boof Says Osama Bin Laden Was Obsessed With Whitney Houston; Contemplated Killing Bobby Brown

Nina Rai -- All Voices

This stunning revelation was made by Sudanese poet, novelist and activist Kola Boof, who claims she was Osama bin Laden's sex slave for four months in 1996 and that he had raped her and held her as prisoner in a Moroccan hotel. According to Boof, the Al Qaeda chief's love for Whitney bordered on obsession and who just could not stop talking about her, even though he was no lover of music. In her autobiography, "Diary of a Lost Girl," the author writes about Bin Laden's craze for Whitney Houston who he said "was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen." Her being married did not matter one bit to the plotter of the twin towers' destruction, who had plans to also kill Bobby Brown. ...

 Pat Buchanan Ousted From MSNBC; Read His Take On Why

Patrick J. Buchanan -- American Conservative

From Buchanan's column: "MSNBC President Phil Griffin told reporters, "I don't think the ideas that [Buchanan] put forth [in his book] are appropriate for the national dialogue, much less on MSNBC." In the 10 years I have been at MSNBC, the network has taken heat for what I have written, and faithfully honored our contract. Yet my four-months' absence from MSNBC and now my departure represent an undeniable victory for the blacklisters. The modus operandi of these thought police at Color of Change and ADL is to brand as racists and anti-Semites any writer who dares to venture outside the narrow corral in which they seek to confine debate. All the while prattling about their love of dissent and devotion to the First Amendment, they seek systematically to silence and censor dissent. Without a hearing, they smear and stigmatize as racist, homophobic, or anti-Semitic any who contradict what George Orwell once called their 'smelly little orthodoxies.'" CLick the link to read Buchanan's entire column on his firing by MSNBC: "Blacklisted, But Not Beaten." ...

 Ideological Purification At MSNBC

James G. Wiles -- American Thinker

It was none other than one Patrick J. Buchanan who -- long ago on a media planet far, far away -- helped commence the march away from the Big Three networks. He actually helped start something which led to cable news channels, talk radio and today's 24-hour news cycle. Buchanan was, you might say, one of the original talking heads.In the late 1970's, Pat Buchanan and the late liberal columnist Tom Braden debuted a three-hour program called "The Buchanan-Braden Program" on a Washington, D.C., radio station. CNN's "Crossfire," which Buchanan debuted a few years later, was inspired by The Buchanan-Braden Program. Buchanan was later succeeded on "Crossfire" by the late conservative columnist, Robert Novak. So, in many ways, the people who banned Pat Buchanan thus are the inheritors of something he helped create. ...

Obama Czar Proposed Government Infiltrate Social Network Sites

Aaron Klein --WND

Just prior to his appointment as President Obama's so-called regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein wrote a lengthy academic paper suggesting the government should "infiltrate" social network websites, chat rooms and message boards.Such "cognitive infiltration," Sunstein argued, should be used to enforce a U.S. government ban on "conspiracy theorizing." Among the beliefs Sunstein classified as a "conspiracy theory" is advocating that the theory of global warming is a deliberate fraud. The find comes after a report of a government document indicating that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's command center routinely monitors dozens of popular websites, including Facebook, Twitter, Hulu, WikiLeaks and internet news sites. ...

The Year 2011 In Obama Scandals -- And Scandal Deniers

Michelle Malkin -- Human Events

The year kicked off in January with the departure of lying eco-radical czar Carol Browner. In backroom negotiations, she infamously bullied auto execs to "put nothing in writing, ever." The previous fall, the White House's own oil spill panel had singled out Browner for misleading the public about the scientific evidence for the administration's Draconian drilling moratorium and "contributing to the perception that the government's findings were more exact than they actually were." The Interior Department inspector general and federal judges likewise blasted drilling ban book-cooking by Browner and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who falsely rewrote the White House drilling ban report to doctor the Obama-appointed panel's own overwhelming scientific objections to the job-killing edict. In February, federal judge Martin Feldman in Louisiana excoriated the Obama Interior Department for defying his May 2010 order to lift its fraudulent ban on offshore oil and gas drilling in the Gulf. He called out the administration's culture of contempt and "determined disregard" for the law. The Obama White House closed out the year with Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri demanding a probe of the smelly $443 million no-bid smallpox antiviral pill contract with Siga Technologies -- controlled by big lefty donor Ron Perelman. ...

Are Americans Really To Be Jailed At Gitmo?

Drew Zahn -- World Net Daily

Buried within an 1,844-page bill currently sitting on Barack Obama's desk awaiting his signature is text that many critics are warning could give the president legal authority to send Americans to jail without charges, without trial, without end. Both the U.S. House and Senate have passed the National Defense Authorization Act, a sweeping piece of legislation that affects dozens of aspects of foreign and military policy, but that was designed primarily to give the military -- and not civilian courts -- the clear authority for prosecuting and jailing terrorists. But voices from across the political spectrum are concerned that the bill opens the door for the military - led by the president as commander in chief -- to indefinitely detain American citizens, even within the U.S. ...

Is Obama Building An Armageddon-Proof Bunker Under The White House?

Daniel Bates -- Daily Mail (UK)

Workmen have torn up an enormous section of the lawn in front of the White House for a mysterious, top secret project. The hole by the West Wing is roughly 100ft by 100ft in size and has for the first time in living memory left the ground and pipes beneath the Oval office exposed to the elements. The White House already has a number of tunnels; the exact number is, of course, classified. The most well known is the underground corridor that leads to the President's Emergency Operations Center, a supposedly nuclear-proof bunker located six stories under the East Wing. It was to this bunker and its adjacent Executive Briefing Room that Dick Cheney and Condoleezza Rice, among others, directed Government operations on September 11, 2001. ...

Obama Nullifies And Ends U.S. Constitution

Sher Zieve -- Canada Free Press (CA)

Sometime in May 2011, Mr. Obama illegally threatened the then-sovereign State of Texas with the US government's establishment of a "No Fly Zone" (a term previously used by the US government to enact wars against enemy countries) over Texas if the State leaders and its population refused to go along with illegal sexual groping intimidation techniques delivered by a US government entity misnamed as the "Transportation Safety Agency." As this illegal act by the Obama regime (also see "Obama Syndicate") was never met by any real or lasting resistance from US Congressional leaders or the old Marxist-Leninist court system, the US Constitution was effectively rendered null and void and the United States of America -- along with the world -- entered into what has come to be known as the "Second Dark Age" of mankind. ...

Federal Debt Will Reach More Than 100% Of GDP For 1st Time Since World War II Under Obama's Budget

Jerome R. Corsi -- World Net Daily

Barack Obama's release of the 2012 budget was met by considerable skepticism, despite administration claims that the proposed spending cuts will put the government on track to half the budget deficit by the end of Obama's first term in office. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 12,268, down five points on a day in which the market traded mostly down as experts sorted through the details of the budget. Almost immediately after the 216-page plan was released, along with a 1,368-page appendix and a third 360-page volume of historical tables, critics pointed out that Obama's budget conceded that 2011 will see the largest one-year jump in debt in U.S. history, almost $2 trillion in a single year. With the release of these documents, the Obama administration was forced to concede that the national debt will total $15.476 trillion by Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year. The debt will reach 102.6 percent of the gross domestic product, or GDP, for the first time since the end of World War II. ...

Obama Blaming Others For His Failures

Michael Goodwin -- New York Post

When word got out that Barack Obama told an interviewer he had learned from his mistakes, the grandees of the political class swarmed to the bait. Like primitive mystics "reading" the entrails of a sacrificial animal, they began dissecting his comments to divine whether the president is signaling a course change after the election. No, he's not going to change. Why mess with perfection? Obama thinks he did everything right and nothing wrong. And he remains stuck on blaming others, including voters, the media, Republicans, Washington, and impossible-to-please liberals. In short, nearly halfway through his term, Obama still doesn't get it. He's clueless about his massive failures, which means, if he's given the chance, we can expect more of them. ...

Eric Alterman -- Daily Beast

In case you hadn't heard, yes Barack Obama did go before a $30,000-per-person Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Greenwich, Connecticut -- the hedge-fund capital of the world -- and (at the home, I kid you not, of a guy named "Rich Richman" ) complain about how silly his base was being. (Laughter.) "If we get an historic health-care bill passed -- oh, well, the public option wasn't there. If you get the financial-reform bill passed -- then, well, I don't know about this particular derivatives rule, I'm not sure that I'm satisfied with that. And gosh, we haven't yet brought about world peace and -- (laughter.) I thought that was going to happen quicker." (Laughter.) With your own party heading for disaster in the polls, a number of its candidates are running away from you faster than you can say, "You really considered this guy for vice president?" ...

    Rants & Raves from Our Readers

    A reader who wishes to remain anonymous sent in this criticism:

    Great news coverage. Too bad you market by exploitation of women and by increasing interest in our already broken sex saturated sex focused culture. Why not drop the rot and go for excellence. I had possibly considered financial support but not with your sex oriented lead headlines. Please consider a change.

    Robert Jay March Responds:

    Actually, I agree with you. The reason we put the "exploitation" articles in is that, since we began doing so, our traffic has gone up 30%, and with that, advertising revenue. Regretably, sex sells.
        I am a disabled, home-bound journalist, and MarchReport.com is how I make my living. I must use any means to get traffic up in order to survive, even if I find the method(s) distasteful. Also, as I have been celibate for 15 years, I find these articles even more offensive than you do. I've experimented with removing them, and traffic goes way down. I have to do what I must to survive, both individually and as a daily web site news platform. Just skip over the articles you find offensive.

    Reader Jacob Martin of North Carolina sent in this criticism:

    In response to your editorial on BHO's birth certificate, you seem to end it by saying "Oh, well, let's just move on." This attitude is the reason our country is in the shape it is in. If we don't find out for sure and prosecute all involved, to include the "criminal-in-chief", and incarcerate them, then we have no excuse for any future fraud perpetuated on our nation. I've heard that the "government is scared to prosecute" because of the anarchy that will ensure from blacks, well, it's time to deal with that too. Every time something happens in this country and blacks don't like the outcome, they mob, riot, loot and destroy public and private property; and blacks are not alone, as the liberal "march on wall street" group are no better. Our founding fathers stood up for something and we as a nation are letting them, ourselves, and our future down. Liberals as a whole are destroying the very foundation of what this country stands for and it needs to stop now.

    Robert Jay March Responds:

    You need to read the Editorial again, as it seems you have missed the key point: I believe the birth certificate Obama released is real, and that the unflattened layers were left there as "red meat" for those unwilling to let it go. After stating that, I went on to discuss the "what if it's not" scenarios.
        The Founding Fathers actually lived in world of despots and not-so-benelovent dictators; their courage was forged in that cauldron. The "leaders" of our country today are made of a weaker alloy, where freedom is the assumed norm. The axiom "freedom is not free" is lost on them; only those of us who are the children of Holocaust survivors and Iron Curtain escapees comprehend that it is not. If it turns out that the birth certificate is not real, there is no one in a position of authority who has the courage to act on it: absolutely no one. If the Supreme Court ever actually displayed to courage to hear this case, they'd simply issue another Bush v. Gore type of ruling, and would let Obama remain in office.
        Your efforts would be better spent on seeing to it that he is not allowed to serve a second term.

    A reader who wished to be referred to by the nom de plume "Great Granny Jane" wrote:

    Hi, just wish to let you know how much I love your Report! And please,if possible do not stop ! I would be happy to help, financially, but am almost 90 yrs old, on an extremely limited income, but I will, if I ever have any extra, count on me to send you a wee bit!

    Robert Jay March Responds:

    While I welcome donations from those who are willing and able, the fact is that most readers do not donate, and that's fine. I'm delighted to have you as a reader. I thank you for your kind note, and congratulate you on your longevity.
