After Jesse James suggested his cheating ways could be traced back to his childhood abuse at the hands of his dad during his Nightline interview, dad Larry said he was lying. Now Jesse’s former stepmom, Janina James Coan, is coming forward with tales of Jesse as a young monster who tortured animals, obsessed over Hitler and hurled the n-word.

“Jesse found it fascinating that Hitler could seduce a whole country,” Janina told Radaronline.com. “Then he became obsessed with Hitler’s personality and the SS and he was fascinated with the Nazis. He definitely has an attraction with the power race thing.”

According to Janina, Jesse’s Nazi obsession extended to a fascination with Josef Mengele, a concentration camp ‘Angel of Death’ who would perform unimaginable experiments on captives.

“When Jesse was about 14 or 15 years old he started killing baby rats by injecting them with alcohol,” she said. “He told me it’s what Dr. Mengele would do.” …

Joe Lieberman’s brilliant plan
Nicole Stockdale
Dallas Morning News | May 6, 2010

Joe Lieberman proposed a new bill this morning that could strip Americans of their citizenship if they’re affiliated with a foreign terrorist organization.

There’s already a law on the books that allows the State Department to take away citizen from people who fight for enemy countries. Leiberman told Fox News: “It’s time for us to look at whether we want to amend that law to apply it to American citizens who choose to become affiliated with foreign terrorist organizations, whether they should not also be deprived automatically of their citizenship and therefore be deprived of rights that come with that citizenship when they are apprehended and charged with a terrorist act,” he said.

I’m sorry, but: deprived automatically of their citizenship when charged? Seriously? And what if, in our rush to ensure public safety, we charge someone who is innocent? That’s why we have a judicial process in the first place — to decide whether those charges are warranted and a suspect is, in fact, guilty.

On MSNBC this morning, Lieberman said the law was necessary because it would give the U.S. a choice of whether to try such suspects in federal court or in front of a military commission. And a Lieberman aide told Fox News that using a military commission would prevent “a big show trial in New York City.”

Lieberman’s office has gone into more detail — with Greg Sargent of The Washington Post — about how the law would work:

It would empower the State Department to conclude — on its own — that Americans are conspiring with terror groups and should be stripped of their citizenship. … You would still have the right to contest this in court. And if you did, the burden of proof would be on State — not on you — to persuade the court that your involvement with a terror organization is sufficient to justify taking away your citizen status.
So, Lieberman’s brilliant plan is to strip suspects of their citizenship so that we can avoid show trials by putting them in front of secret military tribunals … only after they have a chance for a different court proceeding to contest the decision, which they can instead use as a show trial?

STAMFORD – It was a night for Republicans to gloat a bit about the Democrats’ Black Tuesday, tell a new joke about Dick Blumenthal, recognize John G. Rowland and say good-bye to Gov. M. Jodi Rell.

Nearly 800 Republicans crowded into an under-sized ballroom Wednesday night for the annual Prescott Bush fundraising dinner, bringing in $300,000 and setting the stage for this weekend’s GOP nominating convention.

“Isn’t it great to be a Connecticut Republican?” asked Chris Healy, the GOP state chairman.

This week, it is.

On Tuesday, the Democrats saw their U.S. Senate candidate, Blumenthal, forced to explain how he “misspoke” about his military record and their candidate for attorney general, Susan Bysiewicz, compelled by a court to quit her race.

“The running joke today is Jane Fonda spent more time in Vietnam than Dick Blumenthal,” Healy said from the stage. “And Susan Bysiewicz will have plenty of time to get her 10 years of legal practice.”

The crowd roared.

Blumenthal, a stateside Marine Reservist during Vietnam, is on the defensive this week about a 2008 speech in which he both correctly referred to his Vietnam-era service and incorrectly referred to serving in Vietnam.

The state Supreme Court unanimously found that Bysiewicz, the Democrats’ best-known candidate after Blumenthal, lacks the 10 years of active practice to hold the office of attorney general.

Her Republican brother-in-law, Ross Garber, who declared his candidacy for attorney general earlier Wednesday, worked the crowd. He may be joined in the race today by Rep. Arthur J. O’Neill, R-Southbury, who was co-chairman of the House impeachment inquiry of Rowland in 2004.

Garber, who represented the office of the governor during the impeachment inquiry, chatted with Rell, who became governor after Rowland’s resignation.

During a tribute to Rell, candidates and their surrogates criss-crossed the room. Former U.S. Rep. Nancy Johnson stood in the back, selling a young couple on the virtues of her candidate for governor, Oz Griebel.

“They know him to be a straight shooter,” Johnson told them.

Rell, who is not seeking re-election, was invited to the stage for the last time as governor.

“I want to say thank you, really and truly. Thank you for everything,” Rell said.

She announced she has a fourth grandchild on the way, due around Election Day.

Rell spoke for just 90 seconds, leaving to a standing ovation.

Earlier, Rell walked past Rowland’s table without the former running mates acknowledging each other. It was unclear if one noticed the other.

Healy later recognized Rowland from the stage, the first time he was so acknowledged since his resignation and conviction on federal corruption charges. Rowland stood and waved. He was warmly applauded.

On his way into the ballroom at the Stamford Plaza, Rowland predicted that Blumenthal would survive the military-record controversy and stay in the race.

He and his wife, Patty, were surrounded by well-wishers. As New Britain Mayor Timothy Stewart walked by, Rowland smiled and loudly announced, “This is the future of the party right here. You can mark that down.”

When a reporter he knew took out a camera, Rowland smiled. He hadn’t seen the reporter shoot photos before.

“You’re taking your own pictures now?” he said, his grin growing wider. “How the mighty have fallen.”

William Saletan in a national correspondent at Slate.com, the celebrated progressive news site.  Saleton recently wrote an erroneous piece smearing victims of ritual abuse. RA is a topic that I have covered for years, and this has put me in a position to be aware that there is an ambitious CIA propaganda campaign underway in the press to discredit victims and their advocates who are blacklisted and libelled freely in the media. Why? Because RA is ultimately about CIA mind control, a front covering for experimentation and operations. It isn’t only children at Abu Ghraib who are raped by the CIA. So are American schoolchildren, and Saleton is one of many assets in the propaganda press who conceal that fact. The cover-up of RA in the media is a psyop nearly as pervasive and psychologically effective as the MSM-wide WMD hoax that preceded the Iraq war. (Anyone who believes that the RA’d chidren suffer “false memories,” or were “coached,” or “fabricate” stories of abuse, are themselves victims of ,media mind control programming. “Mockingbird,” the CIA’s code name for infiltration of the media, was iself, after all, a mind control program. Some 60 pages of documentation Ive posted here tell the actual, untrammelled-by-CIA-propaganda  ritual abuse story.) Saleton’s ersatz diatribe on RA is but the latest media lie on the topic and it piqued my suspicions. Sure enough, I find that Mr. Saleton is best-known for promoting the racist policies of the Pioneer Fund (the same racial eugenics front that “educated” the National Socialist Party on racial “disparity” in the ’30s, and, more recently, financed the publishing of the notorious The Bell Curve), and Institute for Historical Review. From Wikipedia:

‘ William Saletan is the national correspondent at Slate.com. Saletan gained recognition in the fall of 2004 with nearly daily columns covering the ups and downs of the Presidential race. … A self described “liberal Republican,” Saletan came out strongly against the re-election candidacy of George W. Bush. … While Saletan initially argued in favor of George W. Bush’s decision to invade Iraq, later as part of a Slate.com series marking the 5th anniversary of the Iraq War, Saletan described the lessons he had come to learn, stating “I wish I’d absorbed these lessons before the war. The best I can do now is remember them before the next one.” In a series initially posted Sunday, November 18, 2007 on Slate.com, Saletan assessed the question of whether race is a genetically determining factor in intelligence. He ultimately did not discount the hypothesis that it is, concluding, “When I look at all the data, studies, and arguments, I see a prima facie case for partial genetic influence.” Richard Nisbett[1] (in the New York Times),[Richard Nisbett should not be cited here. Saletan might believe that there are genetic differences in intelligence between races, but Nisbett clearly does not; see his book, “Intelligence and How to Get It: Why Schools and Cultures Count.”] Stephen Metcalf[2] (in Slate) and The New Yorker’s Malcolm Gladwell subsequently published counterarguments. In 2004 he wrote the book Bearing Right: How Conservatives Won the Abortion War. Saletan, a native Texan, graduated from Swarthmore College in 1987 and currently lives in Bethesda, Maryland. …

I can comfortably rest my case here. More damning details on this “liberal Republican,” whataver that is, would only be icing on the cake. Saleton, the “liberal Republican,” is a obviously a far-cry from the liberal camp. His position on genetics and race is as extreme as the Nazi Pioneer Fund’s. Backing the Iraq war in print was murderous. His writing is CIA perception management at its worst and most devastating. His “opinions” on the ritual abuse of children are not only wothless – they enable the rape and torture of young children. Likewise, his “work” on race and intellgence enables discrimination. He “reasoning” on Iraq enabled genocide. He is a media enabler of facsism, a media mole, a war criminal, a child rapist in his own right, and has less than zero credibility. Slate needs to unload this manipulative perception manager ASAP, or its own credibility is headed for the toilet, as well.

Excerpt: “CIA Mulled Saddam Gay Sex Vid, Made Osama Tape Instead”

… On the eve of the Iraq war, the CIA kicked around a rather odd idea: make a gay sex tape featuring a teenage boy and an ersatz Saddam Hussein.

“It would look like it was taken by a hidden camera,” one former intelligence official tells SpyTalk. “Very grainy, like it was a secret videotaping of a sex session.”

The notion was eventually nixed. But On the eve of the Iraq war, the CIA kicked around a rather odd idea: make a gay sex tape featuring a teenage boy and an ersatz Saddam Hussein.

Hmmm… I wonder if that’s how the rumor surfaced in the British press of al-Qaeda chiefs “raping young male converts to shame them into becoming suicide bombers.”

Either way, it wasn’t the only time American operatives attempted to use homoerotic tactics against its enemies in the Middle East. There were the nude human pyramids at Abu Ghraib. And before 9/11, the CIA tried to recruit a gay agent who could penetrate and compromise Al Qaeda’s inner circle. …

By SCOTT SHANE | New York Times | May 13, 2010

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s decision to authorize the killing by the Central Intelligence Agency of a terrorism suspect who is an American citizen has set off a debate over the legal and political limits of drone missile strikes, a mainstay of the campaign against terrorism.

The notion that the government can, in effect, execute one of its own citizens far from a combat zone, with no judicial process and based on secret intelligence, makes some legal authorities deeply uneasy.

To eavesdrop on the terrorism suspect who was added to the target list, the American-born radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who is hiding in Yemen, intelligence agencies would have to get a court warrant. But designating him for death, as C.I.A. officials did early this year with the National Security Council’s approval, required no judicial review.

“Congress has protected Awlaki’s cellphone calls,” said Vicki Divoll, a former C.I.A. lawyer who now teaches at the United States Naval Academy. “But it has not provided any protections for his life. That makes no sense.”

Administration officials take the view that no legal or constitutional rights can protect Mr. Awlaki, a charismatic preacher who has said it is a religious duty to attack the United States and who the C.I.A. believes is actively plotting violence. The attempted bombing of Times Square on May 1 is the latest of more than a dozen terrorist plots in the West that investigators believe were inspired in part by Mr. Awlaki’s rhetoric.

“American citizenship doesn’t give you carte blanche to wage war against your own country,” said a counterterrorism official who discussed the classified program on condition of anonymity. “If you cast your lot with its enemies, you may well share their fate.”

President Obama, who campaigned for the presidency against George W. Bush-era interrogation and detention practices, has implicitly invited moral and legal scrutiny of his own policies.

But like the debate over torture during the Bush administration, public discussion of what officials call targeted killing has been limited by the secrecy of the C.I.A. drone program. Representative John F. Tierney, who on April 28 held the first Congressional hearing focused on the lawfulness of targeted killing, said he was determined to air the contentious questions publicly and possibly seek legislation to govern such operations.

The reported targeting of Mr. Awlaki “certainly raises the question of what rights a citizen has and what steps must be taken before he’s put on the list,” said Mr. Tierney, Democrat of Massachusetts and chairman of a House subcommittee on national security.

Counterterrorism officials, with the support of Democrats and Republicans in Congress, say the drone missile strikes have proved to be an extraordinarily successful weapon against militants in the tribal areas of Pakistan, the location of all the known C.I.A. strikes except one in Yemen in 2002. By their count, the missiles have killed more than 500 militants since 2008, and a few dozen nearby civilians.

In the fullest administration statement to date, Harold Koh, the State Department’s legal adviser, said in a March 24 speech the drone strikes against Al Qaeda and its allies were lawful as part of the military action authorized by Congress after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, as well as under the general principle of self-defense. By those rules, he said, such targeted killing was not assassination, which is banned by executive order.

But the disclosure last month by news organizations that Mr. Awlaki, 39, had been added to the C.I.A. kill list shifted the terms of the legal debate in several ways. He is located far from hostilities in Afghanistan and Pakistan, where the perpetrators of 9/11 are believed to be hiding.

He is alleged to be affiliated with a Yemeni branch of Al Qaeda. Intelligence analysts believe that only recently he began to help plot strikes, including the failed attempt to bomb an airliner on Dec. 25.

Most significantly, he is an American, born in New Mexico, arguably protected by the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee not to be “deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.” In a traditional war, anyone allied with the enemy, regardless of citizenship, is a legitimate target; German-Americans who fought with the Nazis in World War II were given no special treatment.

But Ms. Divoll, the former C.I.A. lawyer, said some judicial process should be required before the government kills an American away from a traditional battlefield. In addition, she offered a practical argument for a review outside the executive branch: avoiding mistakes.

She noted media reports that C.I.A. officers in 2004 seized a German citizen, Khaled el-Masri, and held him in Afghanistan for months before acknowledging that they had grabbed the wrong man. “What if we had put him on the kill list?” she asked.

Another former C.I.A. lawyer, John Radsan, said prior judicial review of additions to the target list might be unconstitutional. “That sort of review goes to the core of presidential power,” he said. But Mr. Radsan, who teaches at the William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, said every drone strike should be subject to rigorous internal checks to be “sure beyond a reasonable doubt” that the target is an enemy combatant.

As for the question of whether Mr. Awlaki is a legitimate target, Mr. Radsan said the cleric might not resemble an American fighting in a Nazi uniform. “But if you imagine him making radio speeches for the Germans in World War II, there’s certainly a parallel,” he said.

Beyond the legal debate is the question of whether killing Mr. Awlaki would be a good idea. Many Muslim activists and scholars say it would accord him martyr status and amplify his violent message. Mohamed Elibiary, a Muslim community advocate in Texas who advises law enforcement on countering extremism, said helping the Yemeni authorities arrest Mr. Awlaki would make more sense. “I’m not saying this guy shouldn’t be treated as an enemy,” Mr. Elibiary said. “But there are smarter and stupider ways of eliminating your enemy.”

American officials say an arrest may not be possible. “If we need to stop dangerous terrorists who hide in remote parts of the world, inaccessible to U.S. troops, law enforcement, or any central government,” said the counterterrorism official, “what do you do — cover your ears and wait for a truly devastating explosion in Times Square?”
