Someone put the system to test (as you can see in this video): He tried making a contribution to the Obama Campaign using the name Adolf Hitler, with an address from Germany. To make it better, he named the Nazi Party as his employer and his official occupation as ‘Dictator.’ The campaign accepted the money! Someone also contributed using the name of Obama’s aunt who is illegal alien in the USA, and then - using the same CC number – also made a contribution under the name Nidal Hasan, the Muslim Solider who killed a dozen troops in TX. Both contributions were accepted.

AFP: White House officials held talks with representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood in Washington this week, as the Islamist group threw itself into the fray in Egypt’s presidential election. The White House pointed out that Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain, and other US lawmakers and officials had also met with Brotherhood representatives in Egypt and elsewhere in recent months.
“We believe that it is in the interest of the United States to engage with all parties that are committed to democratic principles, especially nonviolence,” said National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor.
“In all our conversations with these groups, we emphasize the importance of respect for minority rights, the full inclusion of women, and our regional security concerns.”
The Muslim Brotherhood’s political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party, said on Saturday it would nominate Khairat al-Shater, a professor of engineering and business tycoon, to contest Egypt’s first presidential election since a popular uprising ousted Hosni Mubarak last year. The Islamists, who control parliament, had repeatedly said they would not put forward a member for the election in order to mitigate fears that they were trying to monopolize power.

The Blaze: A Palestinian professor made an intriguing historical tweak when he appeared on television and proclaimed that Moses, the Biblical figure who led the Jews out of captivity in Egypt, was actually a Muslim. Even more surprising, Dr. Omar Ja’ara (of Al-Najah University in Nablus, West Bank) claims that the historical figure led Muslims out of captivity — not Jews.
Andrew Hawkins: I just got a notice that Congressman Jerrold Nadler will be volunteering at the Masbia Soup Kitchen this afternoon in the ultra-Orthodox Brooklyn neighborhood of Boro Park. This is notable for a couple reasons. Nadler has always represented the Brooklyn neighborhood, even though the bulk of his district is in Manhattan. But after this latest round of redistricting, Nadler’s portion of Boro Park has grown substantially larger, including swaths of Kensington and Midwood. One source told me that Nadler hadn’t been to Masbia in six years, but a spokesman for the congressman said he was there in 2007.

Yid With Lid Bites: One of the many controversies coming out of the horrible mainstream media coverage of the Trayvon Martin tragedy is the invention of a new term, The White Hispanic to describe the shooter, George Zimmerman.
The media invented the term as a way to point out…well I don’t really know what they are trying to point out. It can’t be because only one of his parents is Hispanic, if that was the case they would be calling Barack Obama the first White Black President. Maybe they are trying to indicate that Zimmerman does not deserve the right for his claim of self defense to be confirmed or disproved, he is only a White Hispanic therefore he must be an oppressor.
In a special report from Newsbusted anchor Jodi Miller we learn that if Sotomayor votes against Obamacare the media will begin to call her a White Hispanic. Additionally if Ginsberg, Breyer or Kagan votes against the President’s signature bill they will be labeled “Jewish One-Percenters”
New York Times Reports: In the tightly knit Korean-American community here, bound by membership at churches and a striving for academic excellence, One L. Goh had long found himself on the periphery. After leaving an apartment in Virginia without paying his rent two years ago, he returned to the Bay Area, where he had lived earlier and where his ailing father still resided.
In his early 40s, battling debt, Mr. Goh began studying nursing at Oikos University, a small college founded by an evangelical Korean pastor in an industrial area near the Oakland airport. But he showed little interest in religion and, after half a year at the school, dropped out following problems with some classmates, a school official said.
On Monday, Mr. Goh, 43, a naturalized American born in South Korea, went back to the college, the authorities said, apparently harboring a grudge against a school administrator who happened not to be at work that day. Armed with a semiautomatic handgun, he killed seven people, including two Korean-Americans, and wounded three more, said the police, who added that he had said his intention was to kill as many people at the school as he could.
