... Hoekstra, responding to a question about President Barack Obama’s birth certificate, said he believes the country should establish a national office that would vet and confirm a candidate’s ability to run for the presidency ...

Hoekstra, who is competing for the GOP’s nomination to face Sen. Debbie Stabenow, proposes creating a national office of a FBI or CIA agent to put the question to rest in the future.

The commentary in Lapeer drew a sharp rebuke from state Democratic Party leader Mark Brewer.

“You can’t get much further outside the mainstream than calling for the creation of a birther office staffed by the CIA and FBI,” Brewer said. “Our leaders should be focused on creating jobs, not on creating a new federal bureaucracy to comb through birth certificates. Hoekstra’s radical plan to appoint a Birther Czar shows just how far he’ll go to win the support of Tea Party radicals like Donald Trump.” ...

I love how they are alllllllllllllllll about 'erasing the Fed' - until they want to use it to keep their boots on the necks of us 'others'.

5. For all their rallying cries for "freedom" from "big gubmint"

they will gladly increase its size- when it serves their purposes, of course.


I really thought (hoped?) that this was an Onion article but, nope, it's not.

6. FBI WATCH MAKING CRUELTY VISIBLE

 

The History Channel made a 9 part series about the Assassination of President Kennedy.
The last show in the series was called THE GUILTY MEN.
It details the evidence for President Kennedy being assassinated by the FBI.
After becoming the most popular show in the series the History Channel pulled it off the air and refuse to sell it.
Google the guilty men jfk youtube
and watch the 45 minute version or click here to watch it


In 1999 the Martin Luther King family sued one of the assassins of Martin Luther King in civil court. They did this because the department of justice would not reopen the investigation after the Martin Luther King family uncovered evidence that the FBI, CIA, and Memphis police had assassinated Dr King. The King family also wanted to enter their evidence into a public record so it could be accessed.The jury returned a verdict in favor of the King family and juror members held a press conference saying it was a clear cut case of the FBI assassinating Dr King. There was a media blackout of the trial. Details of the trial can be viewed here or by reading the book called ACT OF STATE THE EXECUTION OF Martin Luther King
written by the trial attorney William Pepper.
