THE Million Dollar Question Concerning Obama’s Place Of Birth

By Breaking News

Barack Obama speech 14 SC THE million dollar question concerning Obamas place of birth

Carl Gallups has asked it before. He has asked it on his radio program heard on 1330 WEBY Northwest Florida’s Talk Radio – Freedom Friday With Carl Gallups.

To date – Carl has never received an answer to the question…not from an Obamabot, not from a staunch Obama birth supporter – not from the people in Carl’s question who are the subject of the question. No one can answer the question.

The QUESTION?   Simple – If Obama is really America’s first black president and if he really is the  historical and iconic figure that so many claim that he is – then why can we find not a single hospital in the world that claims this Noble Prize winning, first black president of the United States was born in their facility?  Not a single hospital in a single state ANYWHERE in the United States of America has even erected a plaque in his honor. Why is there not a monument to his birth? Why is there not a single magazine or news article outlining the details of his famous birth at what should be the world’s most famous hospital?

Additionally, we know that two different hospitalshave been claimed as Obama’s birth place. The most recent place claimed by Obama and his fraudulent long form birth certificate is Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu.  Yet, Kapi’olani refuses, WILL NOT, verify the birth or erect a single monument to signify the fact of the first black president’s birth there.  Strange? Odd? You bet!  We know the birth place, birth home, birth town of every other president – going back to George Washington. Most are signified by monuments, plaques, etc. – but not Obama.

Since the Obamabots INSIST that those of us who question Obama’s birth are “nuts,” we submit that Kapi’olani Medical Center must be nuts as well. They won’t put their reputation on the line and CONFIRM that Obama was indeed born there. Not only that – but consider that Obama’s BC proclaims that Kapi’olani is the hospital of his birth. The name is in the birth certificate for all the world to behold. Yet Kapi’olani will NOT verify it or indicate it with a plaque or monument. Apparently even they do not take the word of the fake birth certificate. One can only assume that their own records do not match the information on the fraudulent birth certificate.

India police release sketches of temple bomb suspect

Indian police investigating bomb blasts at one of Buddhism’s holiest sites released sketches of a suspect on Tuesday and offered a reward for information about the attacks.

Ten small devices exploded on July 7 in the Bodh Gaya temple complex in the eastern state of Bihar, wounding two monks, while three others were defused at the historic shrine.

The National Investigation Agency released two sketches of a man suspected of planting the bombs at the complex, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which was not badly damaged in the blasts.

One sketch showed the suspect wearing a mask, while the second showed a clean-shaven face. The suspect was “wearing the dress of a Buddhist monk”, the agency said on its website.

It also announced a reward of one million rupees ($16,900) for information leading to the arrest of the bombers.

Police studied CCTV footage of the complex immediately after the early morning attacks and arrested a man for questioning, but no charges were laid.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks. But police say they had received intelligence that Islamic militants could target the site as revenge for Buddhist violence against Muslims in neighbouring Myanmar.

Along with temples, dozens of monasteries housing monks from around the world dot the Bodh Gaya complex, which is said to be the site where the Buddha reached enlightenment in 531 BC.

The centrepiece of the complex is the site of the holy Bodhi tree, under which Buddha is said to have meditated. A sapling of the original tree was undamaged in the attacks.

The complex, 110 kilometres (69 miles) south of Patna, contains one of the earliest Buddhist temples still standing in India.

Buddhists are rarely targeted in India but there have been tensions in the wider region recently following clashes between Buddhists and Muslims in Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

In neighbouring Nepal, dozens of police have been mobilised to guard the country’s famed Buddhist temple complex as a precaution after the India attacks.

Police have doubled to 70 the number of security officers guarding the Lumbini temple complex, 250 kilometres (150 miles) southwest of the capital Kathmandu, local police official Surendra Bahadur Shah told AFP.

Thousands of pilgrims visit Lumbini each year to pay homage to the Buddha, who is said to have been born in the temple gardens in 623 BC.

China shuts museum with 'fake' exhibits: reports

Chinese authorities have closed a museum which contained scores of fake exhibits, including a vase decorated with cartoon characters billed as a Qing dynasty artefact, state-run media reported Tuesday.

The facility, built in northern China’s Hebei province at a cost of 540 million yuan ($88 million), has “no qualification to be a museum as its collections are fake”, a local official told the Global Times newspaper.

It had been closed, the paper said, while its founders have been placed “under investigation” after local residents accused them of wasting money.

Pictures posted by the state-run China Radio International (CRI) showed a vase decorated with bright green cartoon animals, including a creature resembling a laughing squid, which the museum displayed as a Qing dynasty relic.

Several items lining the museum’s 12 exhibition halls were supposedly signed by the Yellow Emperor, who according to tradition reigned in the 27th century BC, the Shanghai Daily reported.

But the signatures used the simplified Chinese characters brought in by the Communist Party after it took over in 1949, it pointed out.

The museum’s owner, top local Communist Party official Wang Zongquan, developed a reputation for agreeing to “buy everything brought to him”, the Global Times quoted a resident as saying.

Locals living near the museum in Erpu village told the Beijing News that Wang bought more than 40,000 fake exhibits at prices ranging from 100 yuan to 2,000 yuan.

They accused him of misusing village resources by funnelling money from land sales into building the ill-fated museum, which took up a four-hectare site.

China’s antiques market is said to be rife with fakes, and the country has come under fire from multinational companies for its freewheeling attitude to copyright enforcement.

“Similar fake museums are found in many places in China in search of monetary gain,” CRI quoted Chinese antiques expert Ma Weidu as saying.

Catholic universities offer support to Boston College on condom giveaway stance

Boston College is getting support from prominent Catholic universities in its efforts to stop a student group from giving away condoms on campus.

According to the Boston Globe, officials at Catholic colleges and universities – including Notre Dame, Georgetown and Catholic University – say their policies are similar to that of Boston College, which threatened disciplinary action against students distributing condoms on school grounds.

“One of the teachings of our faith is that contraception is morally unacceptable,” Victor Nakas, a spokesman for Catholic University, told the paper. “Since condoms are a form of contraception, we do not permit their distribution on campus.”

A letter sent by Boston College telling on-campus groups they could face disciplinary action for a condom giveaway provoked angry reactions from students, and the American Civil Liberties Union said it might pursue legal action.

BC is saying that they’re a private university, so we can do what we want,” said Sarah Wunsch, staff lawyer at the ­ACLU of Massachusetts. “But that’s actually not true.”

According to the Globe, Wunsch cited the Massachusetts Civil Rights Act of 1979, which prohibits interference with civil rights by private as well as public entities. She cited a court case lost by Boston University in the 1980s after the insti­tution attempted to force students to remove an antiapartheid poster from their dorm windows. In that case, the judge ruled that the state Civil Rights Act protected the free speech rights of the students, even though they attended a private school.

Most Catholic universities agree when it comes to distributing contraception on campus, said Michael Galligan-Stierle, president of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities.

Galligan-Stierle said Catholic educational institutions follow John Paul II’s “Ex Corde Ecclesiae,” a document he issued on church principles in 1990. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a US-specific interpretation of John Paul‘s document in 2001.

“There are certain ways of living that we, Catholics, believe lead to a healthier and holier life,” Galligan-Stierle said, according to the Globe. “This falls into one of many of those ways.”

Maritime trade thrived in Egypt, even before Alexandria

By BronxKnight

New research into Thonis-Heracleion, a sunken port-city that served as the gateway to Egypt in the first millennium BC, is being examined at an international conference at the University of Oxford. The port city, situated 6.5 kilometres off today’s coastline, was one of the biggest commercial hubs in the Mediterranean before the founding of Alexandria.

The Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology at the University of Oxford is collaborating on the project with the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology (IEASM) in cooperation with Egypt‘s Ministry of State for Antiquities…

One of world's oldest sun dials discovered in Egypt

By BronxKnight

Researchers have unearthed one of the world’s oldest Egyptian sun dials – possibly dating back to 13th century BC – used by the people to tell time with the position of the Sun.

The discovery was made during archaeological excavations in the Kings’ Valley in Upper Egypt by a team of researchers from the University of Basel.

The team led by Professor Susanne Bickel made the significant discovery while clearing the entrance to one of the tombs.

During this year’s excavations the researchers found a flattened piece of limestone (so-called Ostracon) on which a semicircle in black colour had been drawn. The semicircle is divided into twelve sections of about 15 degrees each….

Olivier Hanlan Scores 41 Points, Sets ACC Tournament Record In Boston College Win Over Georgia Tech

By The Huffington Post News Editors

Olivier Hanlan’s one shining moment came earlier in March than he may have liked but it was still quite dazzling. The Boston College freshman exploded for 41 points in the opening round of the ACC Tournament, lifting the Eagles to a come-from-behind win and setting an ACC record.

At 15-16 (7-11 ACC) when they arrived in Greensboro, N.C. for the ACC Tournament, the Eagles will not be heading for the NCAA Tournament and will need a few major upsets (No. 9 Miami is up next) to even garner consideration for the NIT bubble. After they quickly fell behind Georgia Tech, 15-0, early on Thursday, it looked like the Eagles’ season would come to a quiet close.

Then Hanlan made a whole lot of noise. BC went on to win 84-64.

Chinese archaeologists excavate earliest bronze armor pieces

By BronxKnight

Archaeologists in northwest China’s Shaanxi Province said Sunday that one piece of thigh armor and two pieces of upper-body armor dating back 3,000 years may be the oldest pieces of bronze armor ever unearthed in China.

The announcement was made after experts studied the artifacts retrieved from the tomb of a nobleman from the West Zhou Dynasty (1046 BC – 771 BC) in Shigushan Mountain of Baoji City.

Liu Junshe, head of the excavation team, said the discovery filled in a blank in China’s early military history, as excavations of pieces of armor forged during or prior to the Qin Dynasty (221 BC – 206 BC) have been rare….

The Symbol Of The 2nd Amendment Is Holding Up “Old Glory” – Literally

By D. Cox

blood of our forefathers The symbol of the 2nd Amendment is holding up Old Glory   Literally

“Not to know what happened before you were born is to remain forever a child.” Marcus Tullius Cicero (Orator Ad M. Brutum, Rome, 46 B.C.)

The battle scene depicted above “Colonist defending the Liberty Pole, New York”, was not of a specific battle, but of one that represented a ten year conflict in which it was destroyed and rebuilt numerous times.  Liberty may sometimes be a prize that is won in one battle, but it is only maintained through continual conflict.

The history of the struggle began with the Liberty Tree in Boston, where Samuel Adams’ “Sons of Liberty” would often congregate. For over fourteen years, the “Liberty Elm” tree was transformed from a common meeting place to a National Icon and beacon for liberty.  The New York Chapter of the Sons of Liberty erected a “liberty pole” fashioned from wood adorned with a cap upon the top, to mark their meeting location. The history of the liberty pole is significant, as it dates back to 44 BC when a group of Roman Senators assassinated Roman dictator Julius Caesar. Immediately after Ceaser was killed, a Phrygian cap, symbolizing the freedom of the slaves, was placed upon the pole to symbolize their freedom from tyranny. The pole was significant, as it was an instrument of war –a phalanx, a guidon, a spear. Since then, the liberty pole with a hat atop has been a symbol for freedom and representation of the people in government and can be seen in art and literature throughout Europe. It is a symbol of a war instrument adored with the freedom it provided. Most notably, it can be seen in the center of the Emblem of the Department of the Army where the Phrygian cap (often called the Cap of Liberty) is supported on the point of an unsheathed sword and the motto emblazoned on the scroll flying above it with the words “This We’ll Defend.

During the Siege of Boston, a party loyal to the King of England cut down the Liberty tree, knowing what it represented to the Colonist, and then used the remnants for firewood. The fire that followed though was flames of revolution throughout the colonies. Liberty poles were erected in most towns and villages as far south as Georgia. Some were defiantly cut from white pine, which was prohibited for public use and reserved exclusively for masts of His Majesty’s navy. The caps traditionally atop the pole were replaced with various flags fashioned from either local militias or slogans of rebels’ cries, such as Ben Franklin’s depiction of a snake entitled “Join or Die” and the Navy’s “Don’t trend on me”. This became the birth of the flag pole in town squares.

Hearing the reverberations of revolution, the English moved to disarm the Colonists of their weaponry. While not everyone could fight and not all participated, most all were motivated to defend against tyranny. Each had their different motivations: some wanted independence, and others just wanted the British off their lands and out of their homes. The battle belonged to not just the citizen soldiers of the militias that sprang up; but as Patrick Henry stated to the Virginia Convention, “The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.” The people gathered together, but there was not yet a unifying flag. They gathered under many banners – the unifying factor was that they were flown from the masts of the liberty poles. The term “flag pole” cannot even be found in early American literature until the 19th Century; flags were flown from liberty poles. It was the one common thread that every early American fought for – liberty.

Our nation’s colors, the Stars and Stripes, are proudly flown from poles all across our Nation. They represent the struggle for the right to support freedom and the instrument of war that provided it. Today, we have replaced the Phrygian cap that adorned the top of our ancestors’ liberty poles with a ‘finial’. The most common is a ball, which many claim to represent the shot ‘heard around the world’, or an eagle, our Nation’s mascot representing freedom. Together, the pole, the finial, and the flag represent the blood and determination of our ancestors as they gave their lives to make a better place for their children. They fought for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – they fought for freedom.

The Declaration of Independence stated our claim to freedom. The Constitution provided a system of government so our freedom would never be taken away as a nation. The Bill of Rights was enacted so our freedom would never be taken away as individuals. We are all, individually, responsible to ensure we remain free. That’s what the 2nd Amendment was for, and that is what is represented by the pole – a symbol of the weapon that provided the freedom that is proudly displayed upon it.

Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? It is feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American…[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people. Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, February 20, 1788
