Obama takes name off Iraq withdrawal bill

Obama takes name off Iraq withdrawal bill

Huffington Post

Over the past year, Sen. Barack Obama has been a vocal supporter of the Feingold-Reid Iraq legislation that sets a strict timeline for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. But when a version of that bill was introduced this past week without a final date for troop removal, the Illinois senator chose not to attach his name to the list of co-sponsors.

Yesterday, Sen. Russ Feingold succeeded for the first time in getting the Senate to begin debating his measure to begin withdrawing troops in 120 days (with exceptions for certain specified missions). Neither of the Democratic presidential candidates was in D.C. to vote in favor of cloture, which allowed the bill to ultimately come to the floor. But only one — Sen. Hillary Clinton — co-sponsored the legislation.

A change in Feingold’s bill — the removal of an end date for troop redeployment in an effort to win wider support — persuaded Obama to not co-sponsor the measure.

“Senator Obama has long said that he would only support Iraq legislation that has an end date for the removal of troops,” an Obama aide told the Huffington Post. As for whether the Senator would ultimately support the bill, the aide said, “it will depend on the final version.”

Daddy Bush Makes Skull and Bones Pilgrimage

Former President guest of honor at secret society death cult

An 83-year-old George H. W. Bush apparently made what could be his last pilgrimage to Skull and Bones over the weekend when he purportedly paid a visit to the tomb and rekindled his loyalty with the secret society death cult for the first time in nearly 10 years.

Skull and Bones is a secret society based at Yale University which recruits just fifteen members a year. The vast majority of its members have gone on to occupy positions of high power and influence.

The practices of Bonesmen have been scoffed at by the establishment as frat boy tomfoolery for decades but robbing graves, kissing skulls, masturbating in coffins and performing mock sacrifices is exactly the kind of behavior you’d expect from an Ed Gein or Charlie Manson, and not the people with their finger on the nuclear button.

Bush was in New Haven this weekend to pick up an award but according to eyewitnesses who saw special furniture and tables being unloaded outside the tomb, he was also likely guest of honor for Skull and Bones.

“Famously absent from Boner bashes in recent years (last appearance we can confirm was in 1998), all signs point to the 83-year-old Bush Sr. as guest of honor at the Bones’ latest homoerotic leather-daddy Satan-worship, or ritualized flag-burning, or whatever strange and magical things they do in those windowless buildings on High Street. Obviously, the Bonesmen declined to comment on this story,” reports

UF Police Cleared In Tasering

UF Police Cleared In Tasering

Miami Herald

October 25, 2007

Andrew Meyer, the University of Florida student who was Tasered by campus police in September, may have staged the disturbance in an effort to disrupt a political forum at the Gainesville campus, a state police report concludes.

The report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, released Wednesday by the university, cleared UF police of wrongdoing in subduing Meyer, 21.

Meyer, of Weston, was subdued with a Taser after he resisted arrest during a speech by 2004 Democratic presidential candidate U.S. Sen. John Kerry on Sept. 17.

Meyer, whose cry of ”Don’t Tase me bro’!” made him a cause célèbre on the Internet, declined to comment Wednesday. He has been charged with disrupting a public event and resisting arrest. The state attorney’s office has not yet decided whether to prosecute.

His attorney, Robert Griscti, told The Miami Herald his client was not grandstanding.

“I think the suggestion is that he is looking for publicity when in fact everything that has happened is just the reverse.”

During the forum, Meyer peppered Kerry with questions and refused repeated requests to leave the microphone after his allotted time was up. He had asked Kerry about impeaching President George Bush, why he didn’t challenge the 2004 election results and whether he and Bush were in the secret Skull and Bones society as undergraduates at Yale University.


FDLE said in its report that police use of the Taser was appropriate because Meyer refused police orders to leave the campus auditorium. Meyer clenched a chair to keep police from removing him.

The Taser was the safest way to remove him without harming Meyer or others, the report concluded.

”While I am pleased that the FDLE review is complete, we still have work to do on a separate front,” University of Florida President Bernie Machen wrote in a statement.

“As an academic institution, it is our responsibility to continually review — and improve– how we foster an open environment that is also safe for our everchanging campus community.”

In the 17-page summary of the report, FDLE said it spoke with several witnesses who said that days before the event Meyer vowed to put on ”a show” at the Kerry event.

According to the report, during a Sept. 11 Gators for Rudy [Giuliani] rally, Meyer got into an argument with another student and told a friend that “if he liked what he had seen that he should go to the Kerry speech and he would really see a show.”

In addition, the report said that after his arrest, when Meyer was out of view of the cameras, he told officers that they did not do anything wrong and then asked “if cameras will be at the jail.”


The FDLE report included interviews with witnesses, university employees, and video footage to make the determination that police acted properly, according to the summary.

On his website,, Meyer offered no statement but sought contributions to his legal defense fund.

Griscti said that although he still has to review the full 300-page report, he dismissed statements that police claim Meyer made while in police custody.

The university released only a 17-page summary on Wednesday.

”He was in the custody of police officers without anyone around him,” Griscti said.

He also said that Meyer, a former honors student at Cypress Bay High School, is doing OK and focusing on his classes.

Whether Meyer will face criminal charges for resisting arrest and causing a disturbance will be determined in the next few days, officials said.

”It’s still under review at the state attorney’s office on whether criminal charges are going to be filed,” said Spencer Mann, spokesman for Gainesville’s state attorney’s office.

While students at the university staged protests against the Tasering the day after it happened, students yesterday said they’ve had some time to reconsider whether campus police violated Meyer’s right to free speech.

”A lot of people who protested obviously didn’t care that much about it or they’d be out here today,” Chris Mueller, a UF physics major, said Wednesday.

”I know I definitely feel differently than when I first saw the YouTube videos,” he said, adding that he now thinks the officers did the right thing.

Gwen Kaster, a UF religion major, agreed.

”They should have beat him with some batons while they were at it,” Kaster said.


Howard Simon, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, who read the FDLE report and saw the footage on, said Meyer’s arrest and Tasering were a sad statement on how heated political discourse is being discouraged on college campuses.

”Universities are the place for untidy, boisterous, rude, and offensive political debate to take place,” said Simon, adding that Meyer should have been left alone to make his statements and ask his ”untidy” questions, especially since Kerry appeared ready to answer them.

Simon also dismissed the findings of the FDLE report.

”When you have one Florida law enforcement agency investigating another Florida law enforcement agency, the conclusions are predictable,” Simon said.
