Oklahoma City Bombing Cover Up - Iraqi Connection


Do you remember where you were 20 years ago on April 19, 1995 when the Murrah Federal Building was brought down by a fertilizer truck bomb?

You may recall initial reports said authorities were looking for two suspects, one white and one dark skinned. Within days this was changed to say that authorities were only looking for a white suspect.

In 2005 investigative journalist Jayna Davis wrote The Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing, an eye opening book claiming an Iraqi involvement in the tragic bombing.

Davis discovered that federal authorities were aware of the bombing plans prior to the tragedy. They were trying to run a sting. The operation got out of control and when the bomb went off, the feds had to cover their tracks so they would not be implicated. This was a few years after the mishandling of the Waco fiasco and the last thing the feds needed was an even greater mass killing that they had the where-with-all to stop.

On the day of the bombing early witnesses saw a Middle Eastern "John Doe #2" with bomber Tim McViegh. The FBI conducted a cover-up so that this side of the story remained buried. Not only was it embarrassing to the FBI, an Iraqi connection would create an international incident that President Clinton did not want to deal with. America would not react kindly to an attack by Sadam Hussein. It fit the government narrative better to blame the bombing on right wing extremists.

There are numerous disturbing revelations in Davis's book, including the professional cleaning of a suspicious vehicle by the FBI to prevent the discovery of evidence showing the existence of the mysterious Middle Eastern terrorist. Davis interviewed eyewitnesses and their statements to her were much different than what the FBI reported.

Even worse than mourning the loss of 168 innocent lives, is the fact that the government did a shoddy job with the investigation of the bombing and too many questions remain unanswered. Those who only know what has been officially reported don't know that too many facts have been buried or changed.

I'm no 9-11 truther, but the Oklahoma City bombing is one event where the generally accepted account of events is not telling the whole story.

Obama Meets Lincoln Joke


One night President Obama is woken up from his sleep by the ghost of George Washington. Figuring that it is a great opportunity to learn from the father of our country, Obama asks him for advise on how he can best serve his fellow Americans.

"Be honorable and honest, as I was," Washington tells Obama.

The next night President Obama is woken up by the ghost of Thomas Jefferson. Obama asks him for advise on how he can best serve his fellow Americans.

"Cut taxes and reduce the size of government, as I did," Jefferson tells Obama.

The next night President Obama is woken up by the ghost of Abraham Lincoln. Obama asks him for advise on how he can best serve his fellow Americans.

"Take the night off and go to the theater."

Help Mike Lee Stop Fiscal Child Abuse



Mike Lee wants to stop fiscal child abuse and he could use your help.

The term fiscal child abuse was coined by liberal economist Laurence Kotlikoff, to describe the Washington practice of spending money now and running up debts to be paid for by future generations.

Back in 1997, before Balance Budgeting Republican was an oxymoron, Newt Gingrich's congress passed a law to control the increase of Medicare costs. For the past 18 years, congress has regularly passed a "doc fix" bill to increase the rates paid to doctor. The original 1997 law helped keep health care cost inflation in check, but the "doc fix" restored these payments to the health care industry. To restore the payments to the doctors, Congress has had to cut spending elsewhere.

Now a new fix to "doc fix," recently passed by the House with Republican and Democrat support, is going to pay for two-thirds of the cost ($141 billion) by adding it to the debt. Mike Lee thinks this is a bad idea. He wants to pay for this by cutting spending elsewhere. When the bill comes to the Senate this week he is going to propose an amendment to require the $141 billion to be paid by spending cuts elsewhere, instead of another act of fiscal child abuse to add to the $18 trillion already dumped on our children and grandchildren.

Please contact your U.S. senators and ask them to support Mike Lee's amendment to the "doc fix" bill.

Mike Lee gives the details of his idea in this editorial.
