Hawaii lawmakers want release of Obama birth info

By MARK NIESSE, Associated Press Mark Niesse, Associated Press – Thu Jan 27, 4:37 pm ET

HONOLULU – Five Hawaii Democratic representatives want to pass a law making President Barack Obama's birth records public and charge $100 to see them.

The bill, introduced this week, would change a privacy law barring the release of birth records to anyone unless they have a tangible interest.

The measure hasn't been scheduled for a public hearing yet, and can't move forward until that happens.

Its primary sponsor, Rep. Rida Cabanilla, says she wants to end the controversy surrounding Obama's birth by handing over official state records to those who will pay.

She says the fee would help offset the extra work by state employees who handle frequent phone calls and e-mails from people who believe Obama wasn't born in Hawaii.

Hawaii's health director has said she's verified Obama's original records, and notices were published in two newspapers within days of his birth at a Honolulu hospital.

Rasmussen on SOTU speech: No sale

January 27, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Via Power Line, it appears as if the State of the Union speech had little impact on the electorate’s desire for “investments.”  Despite Barack Obama’s reference to a “Sputnik moment,” Rasmussen’s poll of voters on the issue of spending showed almost no movement at all from the pre-speech baseline.  In fact, it got ever so slightly more negative:  Read More

America Needs Community, Not Collectivism

By Giordano Bruno
Neithercorp Press – 1/27/2011

Tyranny thrives by feeding on human necessity. It examines what sustains us, what we hope for, what we desire, what we love, and uses those needs as leverage against us. If you want safety, they will take it away and barter it back to you at a steep price. If you want success or respect, then you must bow to the existing arbitrary pecking order and play the game nicely. If you want to raise a family, then you must accept the state as a part-time parent. If you want kinship, then you must settle for a thin veneer of empty pleasantries and insincere associations. If you want independence, then you are simply labeled as a threat and done away with altogether. Autocratic rulers are first and foremost salesmen; they convince us that life itself has a “cost”, that we are born indebted, and all bills must be made payable to the establishment. First and foremost, we are sold on the idea that in all of this, we are ultimately alone…

It is within these manipulated concepts of cost and isolation that we discover the foundation of all totalitarian cultures: Collectivism.

Collectivism is not a space age invention or a product of the abstract musings of Marxists, though many seem to think that their version of a hive society is “new” and certainly better than anything ever attempted in the past. No, collectivism is a psychological prison derived from a beneficial instinct as old as humanity itself; the instinct to connect with others, to share experiences and knowledge, to build and create together. It is an instinct as essential to our survival as breathing. Collectivism uses this instinct as a weapon. It is a corrupted and poisoned harnessing of our intuitive nature. It is an inadequate and cancerous substitute for something which normally invigorates and supports healthy culture: true community.  Read More

Obama's State of the Soviet Union

Thursday, 27 January 2011
Daniel Greenfield

When the applause had died down and the softly glowing screen of the teleprompter faded to black, the echoes of the Leninist cadences of Obama's State of the Union address, "We must out-educate, out-compete, and out-innovate the rest of the world", "We have broken the back of the recession" and "We can't win the future with a government of the past" suggest that we are now living in a land without history.

How else could Obama get up and deliver an address whose rhetoric represents a 180 degree turn, while the substance continues down the same track. The meat of the address was stolen from Clinton's 1992 campaign stump speeches on the economy. There is the same invocation of personal stories of unemployment combined with promises of replacing the old bad manufacturing jobs with free educations for everyone. But Clinton was better at pretending to be one of the boys, a working class man who only got out thanks to a good education. Obama's people must have known that dog wouldn't hunt.  Read More

Fake blueberries used in popular foods

Fox News covers fake blueberries story uncovered by Health Ranger

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Editor of

(NaturalNews) Last week we released a stunning new Food Investigations video ( showing that many of the blueberries used in popular cereals, muffins, bagels and other foods are faked. Instead of using real blueberries, companies like General Mills use artificial colors, hydrogenated oils and liquid sugars to manufacture small bits that mimic the look of blueberries.

In that story, we revealed how a General Mills' cereal known an Total Blueberry Pomegranate Cereal contains neither blueberries, nor pomegranates!

You can watch the revealing video here:

Normally, the mainstream media has zero interest in covering actual investigative stories that matter to consumers. But today, Fox News was the first media outlet to actually cover this story in a balanced article that you can read here:

From reading the story, it is apparent that Fox News contacted General Mills and confirmed our original report, verifying that Total Blueberry Pomegranate Cereal, for example, contains absolutely no blueberries!

Our investigation also revealed how Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats Blueberry Muffin cereal does not contain blueberries, either. Fox News contacted Kellogg's about the matter, and they said -- get this -- that "The term 'Blueberry Muffin' is used to describe the flavor of some products. All our products are labeled in compliance with applicable laws and regulations."  Read More

Social Networking Leads To Isolation

Social networking leads to isolation, not more connections, say academics

By Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) Modern society seems convinced that social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter keep them connected and thriving socially with their friends and peers. But a new book called Alone Together by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Sherry Turkle says otherwise, purporting that social networks are more like mutual isolation networks that detach people from meaningful interactions with one another and make them less human.

"A behavior that has become typical may still express the problems that once caused us to see it as pathological," says Turkle in her book, referring to the near-total obsession with the digital world in today's society. She and others say that the online social world is destroying real communication, dumbing down society, and leading to a society of people that have no idea how to actually function in the real world.

Audit reveals widespread corruption in Global Fund

By Jonathan Benson, staff writer

January 27, 2011
(NaturalNews) Investigators working on behalf of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, a United Nations (UN) alternative funding organization, have found that much of the group's $21.7 billion development fund has been lost to corruption. The celebrity-endorsed financing institution's inspector general's office found that in some countries, up to two-thirds of grant money has been misappropriated or stolen.

The office has only audited a small portion of the $10 billion that has been distributed since 2002, but what it has found thus far is shocking. In Djibouti, for instance, 30 percent of grant money could not be accounted for or was misused. Thirty-six percent of funds provided to Mali to fight tuberculosis and malaria were misspent. And an astounding 67 percent of anti-AIDS money given to Mauritania was lost to fraud.

US faces “daunting economic and budgetary challenges” ahead:

CBO Director explains what a debt crisis would look like

Posted by therightscoop on Jan 27, 2011

He said the longer the nation waits to reduce budget deficits the larger the changes will need to be — and the more “disruptive” these changes will be for the economy. …

But Elmendorf has said that under a plausible scenario, the U.S.’s cumulative deficits over the next decade could hit $12 trillion — not $6 trillion.

In his testimony, Elmendorf said policymakers face a “difficult tradeoff” between implementing deficit reduction during a time when the economy is still struggling to gain strength versus delaying deficit cuts until the future when more far more draconian changes are needed. …Read More

President’s shout outs to his favorite communist regimes

It Was Historic: Obama Cheers Maoist Song at WH State Dinner & Praises Commie China In SOTU… All in One Week

Posted by Jim Hoft
Thursday, January 27, 2011

The Obama regime has been in office only two years and already they’re playing Red Chinese anti-American commie songs at State Dinners in the White House.

The US was humiliated in eyes of Chinese by a song used to inspire anti-Americanism at the Obama State Dinner for Hu Jintao.
The American reported, via Instapundit:

During the dinner’s musical interlude and following a duet with American jazz musician Herbie Hancock, Chinese pianist Lang Lang treated the assembled dignitaries to a solo of what he described as “a Chinese song: ‘My Motherland.’”

The Chinese delegation was clearly delighted: Chinese President and Communist Party chief Hu Jintao, stone-faced for many of his other photo ops in Washington, beamed with pleasure upon hearing the melody and embraced Lang Lang at the song’s conclusion (see it on YouTube too). President Obama, for his part, amiably praised Lang Lang for his performance and described the event as “an extraordinary evening.”

World Gripped By Anti-Government Riots; America Next?

Global unrest causing spiraling food prices as regimes are toppled

Paul Joseph Watson
Thursday, January 27, 2011

The planet is in a never-ending cycle of anti-government revolt as riots that plagued Europe last year now spread like wildfire through the Middle East and beyond, threatening to accelerate bloody clashes and force the hand of authorities as the risk of a new Tiananmen Square-style massacre grows ever likelier. Is America next in line to experience unrest that has touched almost every corner of the globe?

Our prediction three years ago, based on UN documents, which was made six months before the collapse of Lehman brothers, that the world would be hit by massive food riots and anti-government unrest in the aftermath of an economic collapse, is now unfolding at an astonishing pace.

The latest countries to be enveloped by the chaos are Tunisia, Egypt, and now Yemen, whose population are demanding the ouster of 30-year President Ali Abdullah Saleh in a protest against poverty and lack of political freedom.  Read More
