Drone Strike to Kill U.S. Citizen on American Soil Legal?

Holy time warp Batman, according to news reports the United States Attorney General thinks it could use military force to kill an American on U.S. soil in an “extraordinary circumstance”; no we’re not talking about George W. Bush’s administration here, we’re talking about President Barrack Obama’s, but fortunately it has “no intention of doing so,” at least according to a letter from General Eric Holder.

The letter was disclosed by Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Senator Rand Paul, who had asked whether the Justice Department believed the President had legal authority to order a targeted strike against an American citizen located within the United States.

According to Holder, while the President rejected the use of military force where “well-established law enforcement authorities in this country provide the best means for incapacitating a terrorist threat.” Theoretically, it’d be legal for the him to order such an attack under certain circumstances, he claimed.

“The question you have posed is therefore entirely hypothetical, unlikely to occur, and one we hope no president will ever have to confront. It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States,” Holder wrote.

“For example, the president could conceivably have no choice but to authorize the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland in the circumstances like a catastrophic attack like the ones suffered on December 7, 1941, and September 11, 2001,” Holder continued, referring to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. Holder said he would “examine the particular facts and circumstances” if such an emergency were to arise.

On this issue the Attorney General needs his head thoroughly examined; there are no legitimate uses of drone strikes within the United States on its own citizen’s, period. There is no “theoretical” for which this would ever apply, period. Would the Attorney General also “theorize” there are legitimate times when the President would authorize the use of nuclear weapons by the government on American soil against its own?

Just as the Bush Administration was wrong on everything from failing to protect the United States against terrorists, to lying about WMDs in Iraq to approving water boarding and torturing of prisoners, so too is the Obama Administration wrong on this. Fix it Mr. President; if we’d wanted more of the same we’d have elected the other guy.

FOX “News” anchor suggests President Obama threatened Chelsea Clinton’s Life?

So-called “fair and balanced” FOX “News” has a huge credibility problem; it seems weekend anchor Heather Childers twittered a link to a story from an uber-conservative blog suggesting the Obama campaign may have threatened to murder Chelsea Clinton during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Childers reportedly tweeted a blog post from godfatherpolitics.com titled, “Did Barack Obama Campaign Threaten Life of Chelsea Clinton to Keep Parents Silent on Obama’s Ineligibility?”

The “article” suggests someone “associated” with the President’s 2008 election campaign threatened to kill Chelsea Clinton should President Clinton talk about “Obama’s birth certificate or lack thereof.”

Because a junior senator from Illinois could do that and get away with it; are you serious? Yeah the United States Secret Service which still protects former President Clinton and his family would’ve just gone along with that. Of course the blog (rag) doesn’t offer anything as proof of this claim, but you don’t have to do that in right-wing world.

So, Childers’ source for her tweet, how credible is it, and what are some of the other riveting headlines from godfatherpolitics.com?

Well, how about “President Obama Channels Joseph Stalin and Attacks Supreme Court Justices”?

Or try this one, “Alabama Supreme Court Justice Says Barack Obama Birth Certificate Would Not Stand Up in Court.”

Why do I envision a creepy kid sitting on a porch playing a banjo when I read stuff like this?

This is absurdity run amok and of course a FOX “News” employee has picked up the ball and run with it. Why? Because the folks at FOX “News” are the biggest sufferers of Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS) and the biggest “legitimate” news organization to perpetuate far-right conspiracy theories such as the birther craze.

FOX “News” is anything but a legitimate news organization and it’s the farthest thing from being “fair and balanced”. I think of my Dad’s advice that when a company trumpets something loud and long it’s usually its weakest point.

FOX is where uber-conservatives go to get their daily fill of propaganda and “news”; of course that’s all interspersed with extremely heavy doses of right wing talk radio throughout the day from the likes of Rush “she’s a slut” Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. Is it any wonder in a recent poll of Americans on the question of keeping troops in Afghanistan 75% were opposed while 25% were in favor of it; what’s the rough percentage of FOX viewers? Yep, you guessed it, about 25%.

Childers should be sent packing, but of course knowing FOX she’ll probably get her own weeknight prime time show for her excellence in broadcast journalism.
