Romney and Bain Capital: the rest of the story

New information has surfaced within the last 48 hours concerning Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his venture capital corporation, Bain Capital.
Although the issue became part of the campaign months ago and faded from view as an item of discussion, the rest of the story on Bain is now available, and there is enough fodder to at least raise eyebrows.
Newt Gingrich in particular heavily criticized Romney over Bain Capital's business practices. Romney's defense centered on his involvement in free enterprise in the corporation, creating millions of jobs by helping launch various businesses such as Staples and Toys R Us.
Even Ron Paul came to Romney's defense, citing the Governor's right to involve himself in American capitalism, provide jobs, and in turn, help the economy.
But beneath the surface there is another story on Bain that is not so admirable.

Will says neither Romney nor Santorum seems likely to be elected

In pouring over an advanced copy of an op ed to be published in the Washington Post this coming Sunday by conservative commentator George Will, Politico discovered that Will believes that neither Romney nor Santorum seem likely to be elected, and thus, Republicans should focus their energies on a more attainable goal--winning control of both houses of Congress. 
The admission by Will is likely a good indication of what many conservatives in the Republican Party are saying privately, that Mitt Romney is not the sure bet for the White House that everyone has been claiming. And Rick Santorum does not appear to be the winner to whom Republicans can turn as an alternative.
Despite months of good news among the top pollsters indicating that Romney would be the best choice to run against Obama in November, he has seldom managed to beat Obama outright, and he has only been able tie him 17 times out of well over 100 weeks of polls.

Suspicious hiring practices at Texas airports raise concerns

Following a news tip two days ago by a trusted source it was discovered after an initial investigation that suspicious hiring practices at some of the major airports in Texas have raised concerns among some observant citizens.
The focus of concern centers upon the airports at Dallas Ft. Worth and Houston. The issue is that apparently an inordinate number of certain minority groups has been hired to work in security.
Under normal conditions such a thing would be of no concern whatsoever. Most Americans are fair minded when it comes to hiring practices that give all minority groups an equal chance. But the thing that has some citizens concerned is the sheer overwhelming number that has been hired in the security realm in particular, and that most of these new hires avail themselves of the symbols that identify them with Islam.

Facebook admits spying on phone users' text messages

In a stunning admission that came in the midst of controversy concerning Facebook's collaboration with the Obama reelection team to collect information on users that would then be used for Obama's benefit, the social networking giant admitted that it was also spying on its phone users' text messages.
The admission came amid new questions swirling around Facebook's overt cooperation with the Obama campaign in collecting, storing, and then using data that would help it target political ads to citizens.
Facebook stated that it had engaged in accessing the text messages of digital phone users for the purpose of using the information to develop its own text messaging system.
But the question arises as to why the social networking giant would need to spy on specific text messages in order to develop its own technology.

Obama campaign uses Facebook to collect data on citizens

It is common knowledge that corporations collect data on citizens by placing 'cookies' on their Internet surfing devices in order to more effectively market their products. But the practice was never intended to apply to government.
New information confirms the suspicions of conservatives that although government is not collecting data on citizens through cookies, or at least not to our knowledge, it is definitely doing so through the use of social networking sites such as Facebook.
The Obama reelection team in particular has launched a high tech strategy designed to be the most comprehensive digital campaign tactic in history.

Latest Wikileaks dump shows Dems effort to throw 2008 election

This morning Wikileaks began its latest document dump in a series of cables that it calls 'The Global Intelligence Files.' Part of the information contained in the files shows that the Democratic Party engaged in an effort to throw the 2008 election.
The Democrats may have succeeded, and the election results from 2008 may be entirely skewed.
At issue is internal communication within a company in Texas called Stratfor. The company bills itself as a 'global intelligence service' that offers confidential information to large corporations and political entities.

Report: Homeland Security lied to Congress about spying on citizens

Already facing inquiries from the House Committee on Oversight and Government reform concerning possible perjury revolving around the Fast and Furious fiasco, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano appears to be in deeper trouble in light of a report stating that her agency lied to Congress about alleged spying on citizens who have not been charged with crimes.
Secret documents recently published by The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) show that Homeland Security officials misled Congress when they claimed that the agency had not contracted with any entity to monitor social networking sites for signs of citizen discontent with government policy.
The documents show that DHS did, indeed, enter into a contractual agreement with General Dynamics to monitor the Internet for signs of opposition to policies of the Obama Administration:
