Totally Sick! CNN Praises Member of Muslim Brotherhood

Remember as you watch the clip that the CNN anchor is interviewing a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. So it’s not as though the anchor is trying to give some “fair and balanced” counterargument in some adversarial interview. Not that that would excuse this even then:

“I’m asking about the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that has tirelessly, and in many cases quite courageously, campaigned in elections, it has campaigned against the government, it has campaigned on behalf of the poor in Egypt. It has a long, long history in that country. What role should it have now?”

Wild Thing's comment......


We are surrounded by enimies and traitors. This reporter better realize that his head can be cut off just as much as anyone else. Thanks to the Muslims he is singing their praises about.

Mohamed ElBaradei (Muslim Brotherhood) Says Mubarak Needs To Go ~ Obama Likes Him

(Reuters) - Egyptian opposition forces have agreed to support opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei to negotiate with the government, a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood said Sunday.

Elbaradei Says Egyptian People have Revolted; Mubarak Needs to Go

Egyptian opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei saying that the “Egyptian people have revolted” against Hosni Mubarak, and that he does not believe the protests will subside. ElBaradei said that in his view, “Mubarak needs to go.”

Mohamed ElBaradei, who has emerged as one of the leading opponents of the regime of President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, said Sunday that President Obama needed to press Mubarak to give up power and that failing to take more forceful action to make that happen will cost the United States "whatever is left" of its credibility.

"People expected the U.S. to be on the side of the people ... and to let go of a dictator, " ElBaradei said on ABC's "This Week."

ElBaradei said the response of Mubarak so far to the protests and calls for reform by the United States "doesn't even begin to address people's concerns. Peoples' concerns right now is Mubarak has to go, immediately. The first step, if we need to get out of this mess -- and it's total mess, security is not there, it's a total chaos situation right now -- first step, he has to go."

Mohammed El Baradei — self-annointed “leader of the Egyptian opposition” — has more in common with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than anything remotely resembling democracy. El Baradei is financially backed by Iran.

Soros's Internationial Crisis Group's Board of Trustees shows ElBaradei's name on the list as one of their group.

An article at The Corner by By Andrew C. McCarthy has something to say about this jerk too;

According to ElBaradei, the Brothers “have not committed any acts of violence in five decades.” [ACM note: the Brotherhood killed Sadat in 1981; Hamas kills people everyday.] ElBaradei, who also admires President Obama ardently, said that the Brothers just “want change.” Thus, he concludes, “If we want democracy and freedom, we have to include them instead of marginalizing them.” [ACM: Yeah, just like we did with Hamas — and how’s that workin’ out?]

For its part, the Obama administration — which has made outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood and its American affiliates a policy priority — reciprocates ElBaradei’s admiration.

Robert Gibbs said Friday that the president knows ElBaradei well and has worked closely with him.

By the way, ElBaradei also says “Israel is the number one threat to the Middle East,” and has expressed strong support for the Palestinian “resistance,” particularly in Hamas-controlled Gaza (which he calls “the world’s largest prison”), because, in his opinion, “the Israeli occupation only understands the language of violence.”


Wild Thing's comment.......

El Baradei is fully supported by Iran.....He is worse than scum...he IS bad news. He is tied so tightly with Muslem Brotherhood and he is also backed by the Muslim Brotherhood.

He spent the last 12 years helping Iran stall as they developed nuclear weapons.

Egypt has best be very careful what it wishes for. And Israel had better be sleeping with both eyes wide open.

If The Muslim Brotherhood Takes Over in Egypt, IDF Will Face Formidable Enemy

If Brotherhood takes over, IDF will face formidable enemy


The collapse of Hosni Mubarak’s regime in Egypt is not yet about Israel but soon will be, depending on his successor.

If the Muslim Brotherhood grabs the reins in the massive Arab country, Israel will face an enemy with one of the largest and strongest militaries around, built on some of the most advanced American-made platforms.

The impact on Israel will be immediate – the IDF will need to undergo major structural changes, new units will need to be created and forces in the South will likely need to be beefed up. Since the Yom Kippur War in 1973, the IDF has not had to worry about two fronts at once. Until now.

The appointment of Intelligence Minister Omar Suleiman as the vice president in Egypt is a reassuring sign for Israel.

Suleiman has played a key role in Israeli- Egyptian relations over the years and is considered in charge of the “Israeli Dossier[.]” His office has been responsible for coordinating efforts to stop smuggling via tunnels under the Philadelphi Corridor with Gaza and he is considered something of a moderate in comparison to outgoing Defense Minister Mohamed Tantawi.

In a cable published recently by WikiLeaks, Suleiman told the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff in 2009 that Egypt was stopping Iranian money from making its way through the country to Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

A new regime in Egypt could change all of that, and the transfer of Iranian funds to Hamas would be the least of Israel’s concerns.

This year is turning into a critical one for Israel, which is finding itself increasingly isolated within the Middle East. Turkey is gone and Egypt appears to be on the way.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Since Obama is in the White House, they forgot to mention that America is gone as well, at least until 2012.
In the event of a conflict between Egypt and Israel, obama will either remain neutral or will side with Egypt. In any event, he will screw Israel.

The Muslim Brotherhood does not want peace. They will make the Taliban look like pikers in comparison.

Sarah Palin To Headline Celebration To Honor the 100th Anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s Birth

Young America’s Foundation announced today that Governor Sarah Palin will give the keynote address on February 4 at its Reagan 100 Opening Banquet at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, California, for the 100th anniversary celebration of President Reagan’s birthday. Governor Palin was Alaska’s youngest and first woman governor and the first female Vice Presidential candidate in the history of the GOP.

“I am very excited to have been selected to address Young America’s Foundation’s Reagan 100 dinner,” Governor Palin said. “Young America’s Foundation has been sharing the values of President Reagan with young people for more than 40 years, and there is no organization more committed to preserving freedom’s future.”

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s birth, Governor Palin will reflect on the seminal speech by President Reagan, “Time for Choosing,” that discussed the risks and rewards before an America at a crossroads in the early 1960’s. Governor Palin will draw parallels to today while calling for young people to continue the Reagan revolution into the future.

Vice President Dick Cheney will also headline the celebration weekend and deliver the keynote address at the closing Reagan 100 Dinner Banquet on Saturday, February 5 at the Reagan Ranch Center.

The Groper Union Wins a Big One ~ TSA Shuts Door On Private Airport Screening Program

TSA shuts door on private airport screening program


A program that allows airports to replace government screeners with private screeners is being brought to a standstill, just a month after the Transportation Security Administration said it was "neutral" on the program.

TSA chief John Pistole said Friday he has decided not to expand the program beyond the current 16 airports, saying he does not see any advantage to it.

Though little known, the Screening Partnership Program allowed airports to replace government screeners with private contractors who wear TSA-like uniforms, meet TSA standards and work under TSA oversight. Among the airports that have "opted out" of government screening are San Francisco and Kansas City.

The push to "opt out" gained attention in December amid the fury over the TSA's enhanced pat downs, which some travelers called intrusive.

Rep. John Mica, a Republican from Florida, wrote a letter encouraging airports to privatize their airport screeners, saying they would be more responsive to the public.

At that time, the TSA said it neither endorsed nor opposed private screening.

"If airports chose this route, we are going to work with them to do it," a TSA spokesman said in late December.

But on Friday, the TSA denied an application by Springfield-Branson Airport in Missouri to privatize its checkpoint workforce, and in a statement, Pistole indicated other applications likewise will be denied.

"I examined the contractor screening program and decided not to expand the program beyond the current 16 airports as I do not see any clear or substantial advantage to do so at this time," Pistole said.

He said airports that currently use contractor screening will continue to be allowed to.

Pistole said he has been reviewing TSA policies with the goal of helping the agency "evolve into a more agile, high-performance organization."

Told of the change Friday night, Mica said he intends to launch an investigation and review the matter.

"It's unimaginable that TSA would suspend the most successfully performing passenger screening program we've had over the last decade," Mica said Friday night. "The agency should concentrate on cutting some of the more than 3,700 administrative personnel in Washington who concocted this decision, and reduce the army of TSA employees that has ballooned to more than 62,000."

"Nearly every positive security innovation since the beginning of TSA has come from the contractor screening program," Mica said.

A union for TSA (Transportation Security Administration) employees said it supported the decision to halt the program.

"The nation is secure in the sense that the safety of our skies will not be left in the hands of the lowest-bidder contractor, as it was before 9/11," said John Gage, president of the American Federation of Government Employees. "We applaud Administrator Pistole for recognizing the value in a cohesive federalized screening system and work force."

Advocates of private screeners say it is easier to discipline and replace under-performing private screeners than government ones.

But Congress members have differed over the effectiveness of private screeners.

Mica said tests show that private screeners perform "statistically significantly better" than government screeners in tests of airport checkpoints. But the Government Accountability Office says it "did not notice any difference" during covert checkpoint testing in 2007. Both groups failed to find concealed bomb components, the GAO said.

TSA Union Applauds Ending of Airport Privatization Program

USNewswire/ --The American Federation of Government Employees today praised Transportation Security Administration Administrator John Pistole for putting a stop to the privatization of this country's airport screening function, also known as the Screening Partnership Program (SPP).

"The nation is secure in the sense that the safety of our skies will not be left in the hands of the lowest-bidder contractor, as it was before 9/11" AFGE National President John Gage said. "We applaud Administrator Pistole for recognizing the value in a cohesive federalized screening system and workforce."

Airports have had the option of opting out of the federal screener system since TSA was created, but in those nine years only a handful out of 450 have chosen to do so. Today, Pistole issued a memo to the TSA workforce stating "to preserve TSA as an effective, federal counterterrorism security network, SPP will not be expanded beyond the current 16 airports, unless a clear and substantial advantage to do so emerges in the future."

AFGE is the nation's largest federal employee union and the only union to represent TSOs since the agency's inception. With more than 12,000 dues-paying members in 38 AFGE TSA Locals across the country, AFGE is the union of choice for TSOs across the country.

Wild Thing's comment......

I guess the fox does not want any help guarding the hen house.

The headline for the article might as well read, " Government Employee Shuts Door on Plan that Would Reduce the Number of UNION” employees"

TSA chief John Pistole said Friday he has decided not to expand the program beyond the current 16 airports, saying he does not see any advantage to it.

Who made him king?

The first thing a government agency does when threatened by the private sector is to put an end to the private sector.

IMO the main goal of the TSA is to support the democrat party with funds and warm bodies. All that airport stuff is a distant second in importance.

Pentagon: Training On 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Starts In Feb. For Troops, Commanders

Pentagon: Training on 'don't ask, don't tell' starts in Feb. for troops, commanders

The Washington Post

Using lectures, videos and PowerPoint slides, the Pentagon plans to start training commanders, chaplains and troops next month on how to adjust to a military that will allow gays and lesbians to serve openly in uniform, a critical step in ending the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, officials said Friday.

The new guidelines come as President Obama and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates vowed this week to lift the ban this year, a promise in line with the expectations of gay rights groups who are seeking a swift end to the policy.

Each of the military services will be responsible for the specifics of training, which will occur in three phases. Military chaplains, lawyers and civilian personnel will go first, followed by commanding officers and the rank-and-file. The services will focus on training troops before they deploy, but some training may take place on the battlefront, officials said.

"Moving along expeditiously is better than dragging it out," Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. James E. Cartwright said Friday in a briefing with reporters.

The services must submit detailed training plans to Gates by next Friday. Training should focus on reminding troops to treat one another with respect, that no policy will be established solely based on sexual orientation and that harassment or unlawful discrimination of any service member is prohibited, he said in a memo instructing the changes.

Training is likely to be led by instructors, and may include written materials, videos, vignettes describing different elements of military life and PowerPoint slides outlining the changes. Each individual will need to certify that he or she completed the training, Cartwright said.

Obama, Gates and Joint Chief of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen should be able to certify that the military is ready to end the ban before every service member has been trained, Cartwright said, but neither he nor Clifford L. Stanley, undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, would say how long they thought individual training sessions would last.

"When you're dealing with 2.5 million people, we're probably going to have some discoveries as we go," Cartwright said. Military leaders will meet every two weeks to review potential concerns or delays.

"We do take it seriously. It won't be a 'Here, read this' and move on," Cartwright said later.

Stanley said few, if any changes to military personnel policy and benefits programs are required, because the Defense of Marriage Act prohibits extending most medical, housing and travel benefits to same-sex partners. The Pentagon will continue to explore whether gay troops could designate same-sex partners as beneficiaries, he said in a memo outlining changes.

Once the ban is lifted, the military will no longer be able to remove troops for being gay and will cease investigations of troops who allegedly violated the policy, the memo said. Current military policy on free speech, religious expression and equal opportunity is also adequate, he said.

Service members discharged for violating "don't ask, don't tell" will be eligible to reenlist, but "there will be no preferential treatment" for them. Troops dismissed for violating the ban will not be eligible for retroactive pay, Stanley said.

There will be no new policy for releasing service members opposed to repealing the gay ban, but those in opposition may request voluntary discharges. Service members may already seek voluntary discharges if they wish to go to school or refuse to be transferred to a different location. Service secretaries could grant a discharge based on opposition to ending the ban if it's in the best interest of the service, Stanley said.

Officials did not know the expected costs of the training programs, but Gates promised to provide "adequate funding."

Gay rights groups hailed the Pentagon's plans.

"A brief training period for administrators and commanders is reasonable if it means that we will be done with this law forever immediately afterward," said Alexander Nicholson, president of Servicemembers United, one of several groups that pushed last year for an end to the ban.

Critics warned Friday that the Pentagon is rushing too quickly to end the ban. Elaine Donnelly, founder of the Center for Military Readiness and a vocal opponent of changing the policy, said "scores of complicated issues and problems involving human sexuality" remain unresolved. "All of these problems will be loaded on the backs of trainers and field commanders, who will be expected to divert valuable time to deal with all of the negative consequences in the midst of ongoing wars," she said.

In his State of the Union address on Tuesday however, Obama said he expects to end the policy sooner rather than later. "Starting this year, no American will be forbidden from serving the country they love because of who they love," he said.

The next day, Gates said in an interview: "We will move as fast as we responsibly can."

But he has warned troops that enforcement of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy remains in effect until official certification is approved. Stanley would not directly say Friday whether the military is currently considering the removal of troops in violation of the policy and added that he would consider removing someone, "if the case merits."

"We are obligated to follow that law, and to say anything other than that at this time would be inappropriate," Stanley said.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Officials did not know the expected costs of the training programs, but Gates promised to provide "adequate funding."

They’re cutting out weapons systems, yet they have money for this crap.

Time spent in sensitivity training and dispute management is time stolen from real training in the ways and means of warfare. This stupidity will cost dearly in many ways. We have Iran building nucs, Eygpt going nuts and China launching missiles off the west coast. And we are wasting money on this crap when we need to train more troops to use weapons.

Muslim Brotherhood In Jordan Declares That All U.S. Allied Leaders In Middle East Will Soon Be Toppled

Jordan's opposition: Arabs will topple tyrants

My Way

The leader of Jordan’s powerful Muslim Brotherhood warned Saturday that unrest in Egypt will spread across the Mideast and Arabs will topple leaders allied with the United States.

Hammam Saeed’s comments were made at a protest outside the Egyptian Embassy in Amman, inspired by massive rallies in neighboring Egypt demanding the downfall of the country’s longtime president, Hosni Mubarak.

About 100 members of the fundamentalist group and activists from other leftist organizations and trade unions chanted “Mubarak, step down” and “the decision is made, the people’s revolt will remain.”

Elsewhere, a separate group of 300 protesters gathered in front of the office of Jordanian Prime Minister Samir Rifai, demanding his ouster. “Rifai, it’s time for you to go,” chanted the group.

Jordan's protests have been relatively small in size, but they underline a rising tension with Jordan's King Abdullah II, a key U.S. ally who has been making promises of reform in recent days in an apparent attempt to quell domestic discontent over economic degradation and lack of political freedoms.

Saeed said Arabs have grown disgruntled with U.S. domination of their oil wealth, military occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and its support for "totalitarian" leaders in the region.
"The Americans and (President Barack) Obama must be losing sleep over the popular revolt in Egypt," he said. "Now, Obama must understand that the people have woken up and are ready to unseat the tyrant leaders who remained in power because of U.S. backing."

Saeed did not specifically name King Abdullah. But he said Jordan's prime minister "must draw lessons from Tunisia and Egypt and must swiftly implement political reforms."

"We tell the Americans 'enough is enough'," he said.

Wild Thing's comment.......

And look what we have in power, a muslim that has already stated who he has loyalty to.

The actual quote from Obama's book is from page 261 and is as follows: "Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Radical Far Left Obama Lectures Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak

Egypt News and other sources

Mubarak stated that he is “on the side of the poor people,” and that he knows the suffering and aspirations of the people. He promised to move forward with reforms that will improve the conditions in the country. Mubarak has no intentions of stepping down as President, and seemed to hope his announcement that he has asked the Government to step down would pacify the people.

Mubarak said the protests that are sweeping Egypt are part of a “plot” to destroy the foundation of stability in Egypt. He called on the “youth” of Egypt to not take part in further protests.

Mubarak told his nation that he has “exhausted my life” for the sake of Egypt, and that together, he and the Egyptian people have “weathered” many hard times.

Mubarak said in his speech that he has “requested the Government to step down today, and I will designate a new Government as of tomorrow.”

Parts of Cairo resembled a war zone, filled with smoke, rubble and the smell of tear gas.

Medical sources said at least 24 people had been killed and over a thousand injured in clashes in Cairo, Suez and Alexandria.

More than half of the dead in yesterday's clashes were reported in Suez, the eastern city which has been ground zero for the most violent protests over the past four days.

Mubarak, 82, has been a close ally of Washington and beneficiary of US aid for decades.

The protests were triggered by the overthrow two weeks ago of Tunisian President Zine al-Abidine Ben Al Ben Ali.

Street protests in Tunis focused on similar issues of poverty and political repression. Demonstrations have also flared in Yemen, Algeria, Sudan and Jordan in recent weeks.


Obama said he talked with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak for about 30 minutes, and has called on him to not respond to peaceful protests with violence. He pressed the case for reform in his remarks, saying that “grievances have built up over time” because of a lack of progress on reform.

Obama said he told Mubarak he “has a responsibility to give meaning to his words” – referring to the speech Mubarak gave earlier in the day.

President Obama also called on Mubarak to return access to the internet and to social networking sites to the Egyptian people.


BBC: Egyptian Tanks Surround US, UK Embassies

The BBC is reporting that Egyptian Army tanks have allegedly surrounded the embassies of the United States and United Kingdom.

This comes after Israel evacuated its entire embassy staff via helicopter. This is coming in through their live blog, and further details appear scarce. The BBC is quoting an al-Jazeera cable:


Israel fears that a power shift in Egypt may result in a another radical republic on its southern border.


A fundamental change of government in Egypt may lead to a “revolution in Israel’s security doctrine,” a defense official told Ynet Friday night, as protests against President Hosni Mubarak’s rule continued to intensify.

The security official made it clear that Israel’s peace treaty with Egypt constitutes an important strategic asset, “which enables the IDF to focus on other theaters.” The defense source said that the IDF would have to dedicate major resources in order to devote any attention to the Egyptian front as well.

“It is no secret that the IDF focuses on certain theaters and earmarks most resources to them,” the official said. “The Egyptians are only addressed on the margins. We are holding discussions, including updates relevant to recent years, yet without a doubt Egypt is not considered a theater that requires attention.”

Should a revolution indeed take place in Egypt, the rules of play will not necessarily change at once, the source added. “It won’t mean, heaven forbid, that Egypt would immediately turn into an enemy country, yet our attention would most certainly have to shift.”


Wild Thing's comment........

Obama said he told Mubarak he “has a responsibility to give meaning to his words” – referring to the speech Mubarak gave earlier in the day.

Can you believe it?? sheesh What a total jerk, Obama is. He lectured Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak !!!!

I hope somehow our country is preparing to get the Americans out of there. Surprised we haven’t already evacuated, given our history in the region. Seems like we should have evacuation contingency plans throughout the Mideast.

Mubarak became president only after the assassination of his predecessor, Anwar El Sadat (Sadat was hated for making peace with Israel). Osama bin Laden’s lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawahiri, had worked to overthrow Sadat, and was arrested following the assassination.

Egypt has resisted Sharia law — so far — primarily because the terrain allows secular leaders like Mubarak to fend off Islamist insurgents — unlike in Afghanistan or Pakistan. But Egypt was always been a most desired goal for conquest.

House DEMOCRATS Call For Gun Hearings

House Dems call for gun hearings

A top House Republican rejected calls by Democrats for hearings on gun safety in the wake of the Jan. 8 shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), suggesting that such hearings could interfere with the prosecution of the alleged gunman, Jared Loughner.

Rep. John Conyers (Mich.), top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, and 15 other Democrats on the panel sent a letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) on Friday seeking hearings on several gun-safety issues related to the Tucson shooting. Six people died in that attack and 14 others, including Giffords, were wounded. Giffords was transferred to a Houston hospital this week to begin a long-term rehabilitation program.

Smith said the inquiries Democrats proposed have merit, but timing them before Lougher’s trial could have the “unintended effect of prejudicing the ongoing criminal proceedings.”

While acknowledging that there is little support in Congress for broad gun-control measures, Conyers and his Democratic colleagues suggested the hearings – and congressional action – should be “a carefully crafted and narrowly focused review of these issues and other possible loopholes in current law.”

“We fully recognize and appreciate the sensitivity of the subjects raised by the recent tragedy in Tucson in which our colleague, Gabrielle Giffords, was shot and eighteen other were wounded or killed, including members of her staff, a Federal judge, and several other citizens,” the Democrats wrote. “However, we also believe it is not only possible, but imperative that Congress review the relevant issues in a civil and objective manner.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Tell John Conyers to pay more attention to his jailbird wife and his son driving around in Govt. Caddillacs, and dont be so bothered about passing new laws on guns.

We have plenty of laws now thank you.

There are many rural liberals, who no matter how liberal they are, know that they need guns (guns being a fact of life in rural America).

Idiot Liberals fail to recognize that we, in the rest of America, have a Different Definition of GUN Control.

Theirs is Confiscate..........

Amb. John Bolton Discusses Middle East Turmoil


Interview below from Fox News "Happening Now with Jon Scott and Jenna Lee" on January 28.

FOX News

FORMER U.N. AMBASSADOR JOHN BOLTON: I think what's clearly happened today [in Egypt] is that the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical Islamist party in Egypt has called it's supporters into the street. I don't think it was present on the first two or three days.

I think after the Friday prayers the Brotherhood brought its people out. That's why the protests are even more extensive today. That constitutes no doubt about it a direct threat to the military government, and I think the failure of the other security forces to bring the demonstrations under control also now explains the presence of the military.

Let me be clear here, this is not just the Mubarak-family government. The military has ruled Egypt since Gamal Nasser and they over through King Farook.

It's the military that is the real government and they are not going to go peacefully.

I think the question is whether and to what extent the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Islamists have infiltrated the leadership. If the military holds firm it's entirely possible, although bloody, that the government can hold onto power. That doesn't necessarily mean Mubarak will be in power, but the military will be, and I think that is why this contrast makes it so important for people to understand, this is not a choice between the Mubarak government on one hand, and sweetness and light, Jeffersonian democracy on the other.

I don't think we have evidence yet that these demonstrations are necessarily about democracy. You know the old saying, "one person, one vote, one time." The Muslim Brotherhood doesn't care about democracy, if they get into power you're not going to have free and fair elections either.

And I think there is substantial reason, for example, to worry the minority Coptic Christian population, about 10% of the population will be very worried if the Muslim Brotherhood came to power.

Let's be clear what the stakes are for the United States. We have an authoritarian regime in power that has been our ally. We don't know at this point what the real alternatives are.

JON SCOTT, ANCHOR: If you are Hillary Clinton, the secretary of state, or if you are President Obama at this moment, what do you do, what do you say? There have been a couple of cautious statements put out by the U.S. State department so far.

BOLTON: Those statements have been mush. I mean this is a case where we are far better advised to remain silent, try to understand better what's going on, what the stakes are, rather than making statements that other people are parsing to say, "oh, they are supporting the demonstrators," "oh, they are supporting the government." I think there is confusion inside the administration.

In all fairness, I think everybody, including leaders of the opposition, was caught off guard by the strength of the protests, but I do think it's important to underline that today is different from the previous days with the Muslim Brotherhood bringing its supporters into the streets, and that's why the stakes are even higher today and in the next few days than they have been.

I do think that the regime is under enormous pressure, there is no doubt about it, but I don't think that just because you have people climbing onto tanks you can assume that they are friendly to democratic values.

I think there is a lot of opposition to the regime and a lot of opposition by the Muslim Brotherhood that is determined to bring down this secular military government, and install one of very harsh Sharia law, which would have enormous implications for the United States, for Israel, for other Arab governments in the region.

You just mentioned the Suez Canal, how would you like the Muslim Brotherhood in charge of that waterway? I think that's the reason why the Obama administration should be working behind the scenes and try to understand better what the ground truth is in Cairo and the other major cities.


Unrest in Egypt and What It Means .....John Bolton on Greta's show


Wild Thing's comment.......

Bolton is spot on, imo ........ "I don't think that just because you have people climbing onto tanks you can assume that they are friendly to democratic values."

"The Muslim Brotherhood doesn't care about democracy, if they get into power you're not going to have free and fair elections either."

Bad to worse. I find it highly suspicious this kind of movement is occurring in nations like Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon. Guess who they surround.....Israel. I have to wonder if Iran has a hand in any of this. If the Muslim Brotherhood gets control, they will open the gate for the Palestinians to flood into Israel.

To have another large and militarily powerful Middle Eastern country taken over by a radical Muslim theocracy would be disastrous for the west and especially Israel

Obama (favoring Muslim with terrorists ties) Lifts US Ban on Muslim Brotherhood Leader

Obama Administration Lifts US Ban on Muslim Brotherhood Leader


The Barack Obama administration has decided to lift a ban preventing Muslim Scholar Professor Tariq Ramadan from entering the United States. Ramadan, an Egyptian currently living in Switzerland, is a leading member of Europe’s Muslim Brotherhood branch and the grandson of the movement’s founder Hassan al-Banna.

The Muslim Brotherhood is the parent organization for Hamas and some of the groups that recently merged into al-Qaeda, including Ayman al Zawahiri’s Egyptian Islamic Jihad.

Ramadan was invited to teach at the University of Notre Dame in 2004 but the George W. Bush administration revoked his visa, citing a statute that applies to those who have “endorsed or espoused” terrorism. The administration later dropped the terror endorsement claim and linked the ban to $1,336 in donations Ramadan made between 1998 and 2002 to a Swiss charity that was later blacklisted by the US.

Although the White House asked the court last March to uphold the Bush-era entry ban on Ramadan, the administration has now decided to lift the ban and possibly allow both Ramadan and South African Muslim activist Professor Adam Habib onto American soil. State Department spokesman Philip Crowley told reporters that the government no longer views Ramadan or Habib as representing threats to the United States. “The next time Professor Ramadan or Professor Habib apply for a visa, they will not be found inadmissible on the basis of the facts that led to denial when they last applied.”

What do you expect from a muslim president? Obama is truly an evil curse on our country.

A big gift to our enemies. If the bastard keeps this up, we’re going to have our very own revolution here.

And that Notre Dame would invite such a threat to everything American and Christian to teach there is disgusting.

Sen. Marco Rubio To Serve On Four Committee's Including Select Committee on Intelligence

Sen. Marco Rubio gets plum committee assignment

St. Pete Times


New Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will serve on four committees, including a spot on intelligence.

Rubio received his assignments Thursday and will be on the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation; the Committee on Foreign Relations; the Select Committee on Intelligence; and the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.

The Republican success in November had a downside for Florida Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson.

To make more room for Republicans, Nelson had to give up a seat on the Armed Service Committee. He had been able to use the perch to secure some top projects for Florida, including a nuclear aircraft carrier at Naval Station Mayport near Jacksonville.

Nelson will remain on three major committees — commerce, finance, intelligence — and hold onto budget and aging.

He secured a promise from Democratic Leader Harry Reid that he would be restored to Armed Services if Democrats retake some seats lost in 2010 (and Nelson is re-elected in 2012).

Rubio had expressed interest in foreign relations and the intelligence post is a plum for a newcomer, overseeing all federal agencies that gather information on national security.

Congratulations Marco, I am proud of you. Please never let us down and stay on course. America needs you and others like you.

Time Magazine Has Photoshop of President Ronald Reagan and POS B.HUSSEIN Obama Together On Cover



Obama's Time Cover Transition: From FDR To Reagan


All three major networks described Obama’s confusing speech as being “Reaganesque.”

The new Time magazine cover features a Photoshop of a smiling Obama and Reagan, the Gipper's arm approvingly clapped around PBO's shoulder. The legend: "Why Obama Loves Reagan," a symbolic heart in place of "loves".

Time editor Rick Stengel explains that for years Obama has admired Reagan's style, if not substance, and has sought to emulate it.

Reagan: Fostered national pride in the military.

Obama: Fostered gay pride in the military.

Reagan: We begin bombing in five minutes.

Obama: We begin golfing in five minutes.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Obama couldn't shine Reagans' shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ronald Reagan said, “You can’t be for big government, big taxes, and big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy.”

THERE IS NOTHING OF A RESEMBLANCE BETWEEN OBAMA AND REAGAN. Reagan loved America, Obama does not. Obama desires to break capitalism, Reagan was a champion (20M jobs created). Obama gets a pass from the media, Reagan did not. Obama is a liar, cheat and thief and Reagan was none of that.

Obama KNOWS this will make many of us furious! So does Time Magazine! Obamam said to chill out and everyone get alone then he OK's something like this with Time Magazine?????!!!!!

How dare he try to emulate President Reagan. This is his way of, “can't beat, join them, then dumped them.” There is no “Shining beacon on the hill”, with Obama. He blew the light out!

Obama to Push Gun Control Which Will Make Him A One Term President

White House to Push Gun Control


Obama intentionally did not mention gun control in his State of the Union, but aides say that in the next two weeks the administration will unveil a campaign to get Congress to toughen existing laws.

At the beginning of his State of the Union address, President Obama tipped his hat to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who’s now recuperating in a Houston medical facility. But throughout the hourlong speech, he never addressed the issue at the core of the Giffords tragedy—gun control—and what lawmakers would, or should, do to reform American firearm-access laws.

That was intentional, according to the White House. An administration official says Obama didn’t mention guns in his speech because of the omnipresent controversy surrounding the Second Amendment and gun control. Tuesday’s speech was designed to be more about the economy and how, as Obama repeated nine times, the U.S. could “win the future.”

But in the next two weeks, the White House will unveil a new gun-control effort in which it will urge Congress to strengthen current laws, which now allow some mentally unstable people, such as alleged Arizona shooter Jared Loughner, to obtain certain assault weapons, in some cases without even a background check.

Tuesday night after the speech, Obama adviser David Plouffe said to NBC News that the president would not let the moment after the Arizona shootings pass without pushing for some change in the law, to prevent another similar incident. “It’s a very important issue, and one I know there’s going to be debate about on the Hill.”

The White House said that to avoid being accused of capitalizing on the Arizona shootings for political gain, Obama will address the gun issue in a separate speech, likely early next month. He’s also expected to use Arizona as a starting point, but make the case that America’s gun laws have been too loose for much longer than just the past few weeks.

As the White House prepares its strategy, several gun-policy groups are saying they were burned by the lack of any mention of guns in the president’s highest-profile speech of the year. “President Obama tonight failed to challenge old assumptions on the need for, and political possibilities of, reducing the gun violence—which he suggested should be done two weeks ago in Tucson,” said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the nation’s largest gun-safety group. No group said it had been consulted by the White House regarding legislative suggestions.

Meanwhile, the National Rifle Association has stayed largely silent following the Arizona shootings. Asked about a specialized White House effort on guns, a spokesman for the powerful gun lobby declined to comment.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Facts mean nothing to these monsters. The agenda is control of thee and me. Nothing will be allowed to get in the way. We are only an executive order or two from a situation that will rapidly spiral out of control.

Tom mentioned this yesterday that Obama was not going to give up on this. And then I saw this how he thinks he will go about it.

Rep. Mike Pence Closes Door On White House Run

Rep. Mike Pence closes door on White House run

GOP Rep. Mike Pence Confirms He Will NOT Run for President in 2012

Indy Star

U.S. Rep. Mike Pence shut the door today on a run for the presidency, but left wide open the likelihood that he’ll seek a different office: Governor of Indiana.

“In the choice between seeking national office and serving Indiana in some capacity, we choose Indiana,” Pence, R-Columbus, said of himself and wife Karen in a letter being sent to supporters. “We will not seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012.”

He said he would make a decision “later this year” about what his next political step is, but by not running for president it is considered a virtual certainty that he will run for the GOP nomination for governor.

While he could, instead, run for a seventh term in Congress, that’s not considered likely given that Pence gave up the job that would have made him the fourth-highest ranking Republican in the House after the November elections, in order to focus on other political opportunities.

And he telegraphed his interest in the governorship by focusing on Indiana in his letter, saying his “calling is closer to home.”

He will now “be traveling across the state to listen and learn about how Hoosiers think we might best contribute in the years ahead.”

That begins Friday. Pence, who flew today to Indiana from Washington, is holding a town hall meeting in Pendleton at 10 a.m. and speaking to Muncie Central High School students at 1:20 p.m.

Pence, 51, is widely considered to be a cinch to win the GOP nomination to succeed Gov. Mitch Daniels, who is barred by law from seeking a third consecutive term and who has left the door open for a run for the presidency himself. Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman recently said she would not run for governor due to health concerns, and so far no other Republican star has stepped forward to enter the race.

In his letter, Pence said that throughout his life, “I have learned to follow my heart, and my heart is in Indiana.”

He praised the state’s people, its “highways and byways, the small towns and courthouse squares, the big cities and cornfields.”

“After years of falling behind, Indiana is on the verge of an era of growth and opportunity like no other time in my life,” he wrote. “Those of us who serve Indiana in Congress and in the Statehouse have a unique opportunity to advance the interests of Hoosiers... Indiana can lead the nation back to fiscal responsibility, reform and strong families. As we achieve an even better Indiana for our children and grandchildren, we will continue to be a model for a better and stronger America.”

Pence was being courted by both fiscal and social conservatives to enter the race for the White House against Democrat President Barack Obama.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I have liked Mike Pence for a long time. This is very disappointing,but I can understand what he is saying.

Whatever he does he will be awesome and maybe if he runs for GOV and wins then maybe he will run for president..... I hope so.

First Lady Asks Businesses to Allow Employees to Spend Part of Work Week Mentoring Youth ~ Will she and Barack EVER just shut up?

First Lady Asks Businesses to Allow Employees to Spend Part of Work Week Mentoring Youth


First lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday said she was “thrilled” to announce a new program that asks U.S. businesses to allow employees to spend part of the work day volunteering with young people. The program will be run by the federal agency tasked with overseeing volunteerism in the United States.

“And that’s why today, I am thrilled to announce that the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) has teamed up with several major companies to establish a Corporate Mentoring Challenge,” Obama said at a summit held by CNCS and the National Mentoring Partnership MENTOR at the Library of Congress.

“This is a program calling on businesses of all sizes to allow their employees to mentor for short periods during the work day, giving kids positive role models and offering employees a way to give back,” Obama said. “And they’ve already received new commitments from leading companies who have agreed to harness their resources and help us make a difference on a very large scale.

“We want to do things big,” Obama said, but did not spell out details about the challenge.

The CNCS is the federal agency that oversees volunteer programs such as AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and the United We Stand call to service introduced by President Barack Obama by video in June 2009.

"The challenges we face are unprecedented in their size and scope, and we cannot rely on quick fixes or easy answers to put us on the road to recovery," Obama said in the video message. "In this new century, we need to a build a new foundation for economic growth in America.

“My Administration has already begun this work with dramatic new investments in education, health care and clean energy – investments that will create new jobs and lay the foundation for lasting prosperity. But we cannot do this alone here in Washington.

Economic recovery is as much about what you're doing in your communities as what we're doing in Washington – and it’s going to take all of us, working together,” Obama said.

The budget for CNCS has grown from 927.1 million in 2005 to $1,149,721,000 in 2010. Obama requested a budget of $1,415,586,000 for 2011, but the Senate reduced the amount to $1,365,586,000.

The first lady said that many U.S. companies are already working with local schools, and she hopes others will follow suit.

“I want to encourage businesses across the country to follow this example in the months and years ahead,” Mrs. Obama said. “There is so much, so much good that we can all do here.”

Wild Thing's comment.......

Well this will really boost efficiency........NOT!

Do these never-had-a-real-job ideological idiots ever give a second’s thought to productivity? Despite all of their efforts, not everyone is as of yet in a make-work government position. Some folks actually do jobs that produce real products and services. They should be encouraged to work — not told to take time off to play with the kiddies. The woman is a shiftless, walking disaster.

She never had an actual job and doesn’t understand that in the real world, they do happen to exist. Also what the heck is wrong with parents being the mentor for their own kids. Apparently Michelle does not think parents are good enough to be parents.

“Volunteerism”........ In Michelle’s eyes, we’re all just slaves for the state.

Hmmmm So she says you should give your employees some weekly paid time off to do volunteer work. She’s brilliant, you know. She really is out of her mind!With all the lay offs and business closings caused by her husband.
She thinks this is what business owners are worried about??

Michelle Obama Encourages Students to Study in China

Michelle Obama Encourages Students to Study in China

ABC News

Michelle Obama urged students to visit China at the "100,000 Strong" China Study Abroad forum at Howard University today.

President Barack Obama announced the "100,000 Strong" Initiative during his 2009 visit to China. The program aims to increase and diversify the number of American students studying in China by making study abroad more affordable.

The President met with Chinese leader Hu Jintao earlier today to kick off a series of events leading up to tonight's A-list state dinner with the Chinese president. According to Mrs. Obama, his talk with Jintao wasn't simply about "relationships between our governments and our presidents" but also "about relationships between our people, between our business leaders and our scientists, our educators, and particularly between our young people."

During the event at Howard, Mrs. Obama spoke about the importance of studying abroad, something says she never did while in college.

"Studying in countries like China is about so much more than just improving your own prospects in the global market. The fact is with every friendship you make and every bond of trust you establish you are shaping an image of America projected to the rest of the world," she said.

Mrs. Obama encouraged students to set aside notions that studying abroad is for "rich kids only" or for those that attend "certain schools."

Reaching the 100,000 Strong goals will also require the nation’s Hispanic Serving Institutions and Historically Black Colleges and Universities to increase capacity to provide more of their students with international education opportunities to China.

RINO Meghan McCain (desperate man’s last resort) : Bachmann a "Poor Man's Sarah Palin"

Meghan McCain appeared on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” with Lawrence O’ Donnell and tried her best to grill Michelle Bachmann by referring to her as a “poor man’s Sarah Palin.”

She said:

I think it’s important to note that Michelle Bachmann is not a leader, and she’s not the leader of the Republican party. Michelle Bachmann in my opinion is no better than a poor man’s Sarah Palin and I think the fact that MSNBC and Fox elected not to run this is admirable to the kind of journalism that Fox and MSNBC is airing. I think CNN should be ashamed of themselves for airing this. This is one rogue woman who couldn’t even look into the camera directly. I take none of it seriously, and I think if the Tea Party wants to put a candidate up for a response why don’t they have someone like Rand Paul who was elected on the Tea Party platform give that.

What an empty headed whatever it is she is. Meghan is a female Keith Olberman.

What did Meghan do to become a constantly quoted celebrity ? Nothing! If she was not RINO McCain's daughter the media would not want to hear her mouth yakking.

Just like her Dad:

Hannity: Obama Gives Shout Outs to Two Commie Regimes in SOTU

“Now keep in mind that this is a man who just last year single-handedly took an ax to NASA’s budget even canceling a project that would have returned Americans to the moon. Now at the time Neil Armstrong warned that the president and his plan would cause this nation to be on a quote “long downhill slide to mediocrity” and by the way, the space race was the result of the Cold War not indiscriminate government spending.”

“But the president’s shout outs to his favorite communist regimes didn’t end there. He also found time to lecture all of us on the exceptionalism of China… Now I can say with a certain degree of certainty that this was the very first time in our nation’s history that a President of the United States in a State of the Union Address was touting the success of two communist regimes.“

Rep. Paul Broun (R. Ga.) on Twitter Spoke The TRUTH About Obama During Obama's SOTU Address

CLICK HERE for Excellent VIDEO of GOP Rep. Says Obama "Believes in Socialism"

Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.), also a physician, spoke with CBS News' Jill Jackson about why he tweeted after President Obama's State of the Union that he "believes in Socialism". Broun notes that the President's first two years in office have been an "abject failure".

As President Obama was delivering his State of the Union Address last night Rep. Paul Broun M.D. was delivering his response via Twitter.

The Hill

GOP Rep. Paul Broun (Ga.) rebuked President Obama using perhaps the sharpest language among his Republican colleagues following the State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Broun took to Twitter during the address, accusing the president of believing in socialism. Obama touched on several economic themes during his address, emphasizing the need for the U.S. to be competitive in the global marketplace.

“Mr. President, you don’t believe in the Constitution. You believe in socialism,” the tweet reads…

…The atmosphere on the House floor during the address was a bit more subdued than in recent years and dozens of members from both parties sat together rather than in the traditional partisan seating arrangement.

Like other members, Broun live-tweeted the address, posting 40 times during the speech that lasted over an hour.

“Freezing spending at record high levels is not making tough decisions,” he also tweeted.

Wild Thing's comment........

Truth is always good. Thank you, Dr. Broun.

Bravo! Speaking the truth isn’t uncivil or vitriolic. He is telling it like it is. So are they going to go after him now—he is this years “You Lie Joe Wilson”

Obama’s Message to America: The Era of Big Government is Back, Now Help Me Pay For It...By Sarah Palin

Obama’s Message to America: The Era of Big Government is Back, Now Help Me Pay For It

by Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin on FACEBOOK

The President’s state of the union address boiled down to this message: “The era of big government is here as long as I am, so help me pay for it.” He dubbed it a “Winning The Future” speech, but the title’s acronym seemed more accurate than much of the content.

Americans are growing impatient with a White House that still just doesn’t get it. The President proves he doesn’t understand that the biggest challenge facing our economy is today’s runaway debt when he states we want to make sure “we don’t get buried under a mountain a debt.” That’s the problem! We are buried under Mt. McKinley-sized debt. It’s at the heart of what is crippling our economy and taking our jobs. This is the concern that should be on every leader’s mind. Our country’s future is at stake, and we’re rapidly reaching a crisis point. Our government is spending too much, borrowing too much, and growing too much. Debt is stifling our private sector growth, and millions of Americans are desperately looking for work.

So, what was the President’s response? At a time when we need quick, decisive, and meaningful action to stop our looming debt crisis, President Obama gave us what politicians have for years: promises that more federal government “investment” (read: more government spending) is the solution.

He couched his proposals to grow government and increase spending in the language of “national greatness.” This seems to be the Obama administration’s version of American exceptionalism – an “exceptionally big government,” in which a centralized government declares that we shall be great and innovative and competitive, not by individual initiative, but by government decree. Where once he used words like “hope” and “change,” the President may now talk about “innovation” and “competition”; but the audacity of his recycled rhetoric no longer inspires hope.

Real leadership is more than just words; it’s deeds. The President’s deeds don’t lend confidence that we can trust his words spoken last night.

In the past, he promised us he’d make job creation his number one priority, while also cutting the deficit, eliminating waste, easing foreclosures in the housing markets, and making “tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development.” What did we get? A record $1.5 trillion deficit, an 84% increase in federal spending, a trillion dollar stimulus that stimulated nothing but more Tea Party activism, 9+% unemployment (or 17% percent if you include those who have stopped looking for work or settled for part time jobs), 2.9 million home foreclosures last year, and a moratorium on offshore drilling that has led to more unemployment and $100 dollar a barrel oil.

The President glossed over the most important issue he needed to address last night: spending. He touched on deficit reduction, but his proposals amount to merely a quarter of the cuts in discretionary spending proposed by his own Deficit Reduction Commission, not to mention the $2.5 trillion in cuts over ten years suggested by the Republican Study Committee. And while we appreciate hearing the same President who gave us the trillion dollar Stimulus Package boondoggle finally concede that we need to cut earmarks, keep in mind that earmarks are a $16 billion drop in the $1.5 trillion ocean that is the federal deficit. Budget cuts won’t be popular, but they are vitally necessary or we will soon be a bankrupt country. It’s the responsibility of a leader to make sure the American people fully understand this.

As it is, the American people should fully understand that when the President talks about increased “investments” he’s talking about increased government spending. Cut away the rhetoric and you’ll also see that the White House’s real message on economic reform wasn’t one of substantial spending cuts, but of tax increases. When the President talks about simplifying the tax code, he’s made it clear that he’s not looking to cut your taxes; he’s looking for additional tax revenue from you. The tax “simplification” suggested by the President’s Deficit Reduction Commission would end up raising taxes by $1 trillion over the next decade. So, instead of bringing spending down in line with revenue, the President wants to raise our taxes to pay for his massive spending increases. It’s tax and spend in reverse: spend first, tax later.

And the Obama administration has a lot of half-baked ideas on where to spend our hard-earned money in pursuit of “national greatness.” These “investments,” as the President calls them, include everything from solar shingles to high speed trains. As we struggle to service our unsustainable debt, the only thing these “investments” will get us is a bullet train to bankruptcy.

With credit ratings agency Moody’s warning us that the federal government must reverse the rapid growth of national debt or face losing our triple-A rating, keep in mind that a nation doesn’t look so “great” when its credit rating is in tatters.

Of course, it’s nice to give a speech calling for “investment” and “competition” in order to reach greatness. It’s quite another thing to advocate and implement policies that truly encourage such things. Growing the federal government is not the answer.

Take education for example. It’s easy to declare the need for better education, but will throwing even more money at the issue really help? As the Cato Institute’s Michael Tanner notes, “the federal government has increased education spending by 188 percent in real terms since 1970 without seeing any substantial improvement in test scores.” If you want “innovation” and “competition,” then support school choice initiatives and less federal control over our state and local districts.

When it comes to energy issues, we heard more vague promises last night as the President’s rhetoric suggested an all-of-the-above solution to meeting our country’s energy needs. But again, his actions point in a different direction. He offers a vision of a future powered by what he refers to as “clean energy,” but how we will get there from here remains a mystery. In the meantime, he continues to stymie the responsible development of our own abundant conventional energy resources – the stuff we actually use right now to fuel our economy. His continued hostility towards domestic drilling means hundreds of thousands of well-paying jobs will not be created and millions of Americans will end up paying more at the pump. It also means we’ll continue to transfer hundreds of billions of U.S. dollars to foreign regimes that don’t have America’s interests at heart.

On the crucial issue of entitlement reform, the President offered nothing. This is shocking, because as he himself explained back in April 2009, “if we want to get serious about fiscal discipline…we will have to get serious about entitlement reform.” Even though the Medicare Trust Fund will run out of funds a mere six years from now, and the Social Security Trust Fund is filled mainly with IOUs, the President opted to kick the can down the road yet again. And once again, he was disingenuous when he suggested that meaningful reform would automatically expose people’s Social Security savings to a possible stock market crash. As Rep. Paul Ryan showed in his proposed Roadmap, and others have explained, it’s possible to come up with meaningful reform proposals that tackle projected shortfalls and offer workers more options to invest our own savings while still guaranteeing invested funds so they won’t fall victim to sudden swings in the stock market.

And what about that crucial issue confronting so many Americans who are struggling today – the lack of jobs? The President came to office promising that his massive, multi-trillion dollar spending programs would keep unemployment below 8%; but the lack of meaningful, pro-free market reforms in yesterday’s speech means his legacy will almost certainly be four years of above 8% unemployment, regardless of how much he increases federal spending (or perhaps I should say because of how much he’s increased it).

Perhaps the most nonsensical bit of double-speak we heard last night was when the President said that hitting job-creators with a tax increase isn’t “punishing their success. It’s about promoting America’s success.” But government taking more money from the small business entrepreneurs who create up to 70% of all jobs in this country is not “promoting America’s success.” It’s a disincentive that will result in less job creation. It is, in fact, punishing the success of the very people who created the innovation that the President has supposedly been praising.

Despite the flowery rhetoric, the President doesn’t seem to understand that individuals make America great, not the federal government. American greatness lies in the courage and hard work of individual innovators and entrepreneurs. America is an exceptional nation in part because we have historically been a country that rewards and affirms individual initiative and offers people the freedom to invest and create as they see fit – not as a government bureaucrat does. Yes, government can play an appropriate role in our free market by ensuring a level playing field to encourage honest competition without picking winners and losers. But by and large, government should get out of the way. Unfortunately, under President Obama’s leadership, government growth is in our way, and his “big government greatness” will not help matters.

Consider what his “big government greatness” really amounts to. It’s basically a corporatist agenda – it’s the collaboration between big government and the big businesses that have powerful friends in D.C. and can afford to hire big lobbyists. This collaboration works in a manner that distorts and corrupts true free market capitalism. This isn’t just old-fashioned big government liberalism; this is crony capitalism on steroids. In the interests of big business, we’re “investing” in technologies and industries that venture capitalists tell us are non-starters, but which will provide lucrative returns for some corporate interests who have major investments in these areas. In the interests of big government, we’re not reducing the size of our bloated government or cutting spending, we’re told the President will freeze it – at unsustainable, historic levels! In practice, this means that public sector employees (big government’s staunchest defenders) may not lose jobs, but millions of Americans in the private sector face lay offs because the ever-expanding government has squeezed out and crippled our economy under the weight of unsustainable debt.

Ronald Reagan said, “You can’t be for big government, big taxes, and big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy.” President Obama’s proposals last night stick the little guy with the bill, while big government and its big corporate partners prosper. The plain truth is our country simply cannot afford Barack Obama’s dream of an “exceptionally big government” that may help the big guys, but sticks it to the rest of us.

““The era of big government is here as long as I am, so help me pay for it.”

Great line, and oh so true.

Excellent piece - great smackdown of Obama. Sarah was on a roll, with her interview with Greta and then she also wrote this write up about Obama's speech.

New people like Rubio had the appropriate pissed off scowls on their face at the State of the Union, thank God. But there were far to camera shots of the faces this time like there used to be for the SOTU address. So who the heck knows how our side reacted. grrrr

150 Progressive Activists Announce Early Opposition to Obama's Re-election

Group of 150 Prominent Left-Wing Activists Launch Campaign Opposing Obama’s Re-Nomination as Dem Nominee in 2012…

San Francisco Chronicle

As President Barack Obama prepares for Tuesday’s State of the Union address — considered by many to be the real kickoff of his 2012 presidential campaign — a group of vocal progressive activists have launched what they promise is an aggressive campaign to fight his re-election.

The group of 150 liberal activists, authors, and academics – including Code Pink’s co-founder Medea Benjamin and author Daniel Ellsberg – Tuesday released a petition announcing early opposition to Obama’s re-nomination by Democrats. Many of the names included are Greens and indies, not necessarily Democrats themselves, but they said they intend to “actively seek to impede” his policies on the war in Afghanistan and Iraq as the campaign goes forward.

“We vow not to support President Barack Obama for renomination for another term in office, and to actively seek to impede his war policies unless and until he reverses them,” their statement says.

They charge that “since he became president, Obama has had three opportunities to work with Congress to reduce military spending, but instead has championed increases in that spending each time, despite the fact that this spending represents a clear threat to the economic future of our country.”

The group says Obama “has hide the true costs of the wars by funding them with off-the-books supplemental spending bills, despite the fact that he campaigned against this very practice.”

And, they say, while escalating the war in Afghanistan, Obama was “given the CIA even greater freedom of action to launch lethal drone strikes against civilian houses in Pakistan.”

Arizona to Pass 2012 Eligibility Law For Presidential Candidates ~ Hello Obama

Game-changer! Arizona to pass 2012 eligibility law

Obama will have to produce birth certificate to run again

A plan in Arizona to require presidential candidates to prove their eligibility to occupy the Oval Office is approaching critical mass, even though it has just been introduced.

The proposal from state Rep. Judy Burges, who carried a similar plan that fell short last year only because of political maneuvering, was introduced yesterday with 16 members of the state Senate as co-sponsors.

It needs only 16 votes in the Senate to pass.

In the House, there are 25 co-sponsors, with the need for only 31 votes for passage, and Burges told WND that there were several chamber members who confirmed they support theplanand will vote for it, but simply didn’t wish to be listed as co-sponsors.

The proposal,which also is being taken up in a number of other states, is highly specific and directly addresses the questions that have been raised by Barack Obama’s occupancy of the White House. It says:

Within ten days after submittal of the names of the candidates, the national political party committee shall submit an affidavit of the presidential candidate in which the presidential candidate states the candidate’s citizenship and age and shall append to the affidavit documents that prove that the candidate is a natural born citizen, prove the candidate’s age and prove that the candidate meets the residency requirements for President of the United States as prescribed in article II, section 1, Constitution of the United States.

The critical phrases are “natural born citizen” and the requirements of “article II, section 1, Constitution of the United States,” which imposes on the president a requirement not demanded of other state and federal officeholders.

The controversy stems from the Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, which states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."

The Arizona bill also requires attachments, "which shall be sworn to under penalty of perjury," including "an original long form birth certificate that includes the date and place of birth, the names of the hospital and the attending physician and signatures of the witnesses in attendance."

It also requires testimony that the candidate "has not held dual or multiple citizenship and that the candidate's allegiance is solely to the United States of America."

"If both the candidate and the national political party committee for that candidate fail to submit and swear to the documents prescribed in this section, the secretary of state shall not place that presidential candidate's name on the ballot in this state," the state plan explains.


Wild Thing's comment........

The States listed in the article are AZ, PA, MT, GA and TX.

The can of worms is opening. Sounds like several of the states intend to prohibit a repeat of the eligibility fraud.

Over on The Drudge Report the link says....

“Obama will ‘have to produce birth certificate’ to run again... “

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell Moves to Bring Health Care Repeal to Senate ~ Do it Mitch, do it!

FOX News

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday night, just hours before the president's State of the Union address, began the legislative process of forcing the House-passed health care repeal bill to the Senate floor for a vote.

Using a particular Senate rule typically reserved for the leaders, McConnell bypassed committee action and put the bill directly before the members, even without the support of the Majority Leader who, for the most part, controls the legislative calendar. It is a procedure that takes a couple of days to ripen before any vote can occur, though even then it could be a fight.

McConnell's Democratic counterpart, Harry Reid of Nevada, has vowed that no such repeal vote will occur, but the Kentucky Republican has stuck to his guns, telling Fox News' Chris Wallace on Sunday:

"The Democratic leadership in the Senate doesn't want a vote on this bill, but I assure you we will."

Wild Thing's comment.......

Imagine if this does come up for a vote in the Senate. Then the Dem senators having to stand up and vote for spitting in the face of 75% of Americans who want this thing gone.

The Rats are getting backed into a corner on this.

Rep Paul Ryan (R-WI) Delivers the Republican Address to the Nation


Rep. Michelle Bachman Delivers Tea Party Response To Obama's 2011 SOTU Address

The only mistake that was made, they had her looking into Tea Party Express camera instead of the and not into the network pool camera. The camera thing can be fixed next time. What she said was great!!

Greta ran Michelle Bachmann's Tea Party Express speech on her show

Wild Thing's comment......

Bachmann speech was excellent, to the point, to the subject matter, to the issues at hand.

Ditto for Paul Ryan, he gets an outstanding grade!!!

Obama failed as usual, miserably!!!

Obama showed no energy, no emotion, no real direction, no specific agenda, just the usual left-wing failed political mantra and dogma one would expect from the failed one. Obama is going to take more Democrats down with him in 2012 .

Nine Texas Democrats Switch to GOP

Nine Texas Democrats switch to the GOP

The not at all slow death of the Texas Democratic Party continues. I’ve just gotten word via press release that nine local Democrats up in northeast Texas just switched parties to become Republicans.

From the release:

In what is believed to be one of the largest number of officeholders to change party affiliation in Texas, Lamar County GOP Chairman John Kruntorad and State Representative Erwin Cain announced today that 9 local elected Democrats have joined the Republican Party. This announcement follows unprecedented election gains by the GOP in 2008 and 2010 as Northeast Texans increasingly identify with the conservative platform of the Republican Party.

Those joining the Republican Party include District Attorney Gary Young; Pct. 1 County Commissioner Lawrence Mallone; Pct. 1 Justice of the Peace (JP) Don Denison; Pct. 3 JP Tim Risinger; Pct. 4 JP Ken Ruthart; Pct. 5, Place 1 JP Cindy Ruthart; Pct. 1 Constable Madaline Chance; Pct. 3 Constable Larry Cope; and Pct. 5 Constable Gene Hobbs.

They join a few dozen who switched from D to R in Texas leading up to the 2010 elections, and the two state Reps. who switched parties after the elections (bringing the total of state Reps. switching from D to R, to three). And today’s group of switchers is jumping ship in an area that has been considered yellow dog Democrat for generations.

Wild Thing's comment......

Most will be RINO's but I want to think positive for now about this and we have to remember that President Reagan at one time had been a democrat. Not a far leftie like dems are now but even so a democrat.

Old Soldiers Never Die (Airborne Edition)

From the person that made this video:

"This is a music video I edited using Band of Brothers to the song "Until It Sleeps" by Metallica. It's sort of a tribute to the men of the 506th infantry regiment, and the 101st Airborne as a whole (I used to be in the 101st a few years back). I made an earlier version using Saving Private Ryan and U-571, but I like this one considerably better."

Rep. Mike Pence Delivering Powerful Remarks At The "March for Life"

GOP Rep. Mike Pence delivering powerful remarks at the "March for Life", January 23, speaking out against the abhorrent Roe vs. Wade decision which legalized the taking of innocent human life through abortion.

“And we know this: We will win this fight. Because the deepest desire of every mother and father is to protect their child at any cost – even the cost of their lives. And the American People will make this right. We will restore the sanctity of life to the center of American Law, because every American knows in their heart this is the greatest nation on earth because we acknowledge the God-given rights to liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the unalienable right to life.”

“And as to focusing on spending, I agree,” Pence told the crowd on Monday. “Let’s start by denying all federal funding for abortion at home and abroad.”

Pence has been advocating ending funding for abortion, and particularly for Planned Parenthood, since 2007.

Pro-life protesters walk during their annual March for Life in Washington yesterday .On the 38th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion-rights decision, thousands marched to the U.S. Supreme Court to voice their opposition to abortion. (REUTERS/Jason Reed)

More than 27,000 people secured tickets to the event/rally and there were thousands more that atteneded without tickets to hear the speakers.

Rep. Michele Bachmann will be speaking at the dinner.


At the Saddleback Civil Forum on the Presidency, Rev. Rick Warren asked both candidates the question: At what point does a baby gets “human rights.” McCain’s answer was direct “At the moment of conception.”

Obama’s answer was the non-answer heard round the political world. His voting record is solidly Pro-Abortion .

Rev. Rick Warren: That was a freebie. That was a gimme. That was a gimme, OK? Now, let’s deal with abortion; 40 million abortions since Roe v. Wade. As a pastor, I have to deal with this all of the time, all of the pain and all of the conflicts. I know this is a very complex issue. Forty million abortions, at what point does a baby get human rights, in your view?

OBAMA: Well, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.

House Republicans Introduce Bills That Would Outlaw Subsidized Abortions

Less than 24 hours after the House of Representatives voted to repeal Obamacare, GOP lawmakers began drafting their own healthcare proposals, including legislation that would limit funding for abortion.

On Jan. 20, the House approved a measure that directs four committees — Ways and Means, Energy and Commerce, Education and Workforce and Judiciary — to work on healthcare laws that reflect the GOP's agenda. It didn't take long for Republicans to introduce two bills that would eliminate taxpayer-funded abortions, the Protect Life Act and No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

Court Tosses Emanuel Off Chicago Mayoral Ballot

(Bloomberg) -- Rahm Emanuel, the former chief of staff for President Barack Obama, is to be "excluded" from the Chicago mayoral ballot after a state appeals court reversed a finding that he is a resident of the city. Bloomberg's Lizzie O'Leary reports on Bloomberg Television's "Fast Forward."

The committee ruled that Emanuel could be on the ballot, and the lower court upheld that decision, The Appellate Court decision did not overturn the committee ruling, it overturned the lower court ruling. The effect is the same, but procedurally the case had to go through the circuit court before it reached the Appellate Court.

HERE is the Court Ruling

Wild Thing's comment.......

bwahahahaha.... I sure hope this sticks. I am so sick of how the left has such a total double standard.

The Judges are going to need to have someone else start their cars.

To me the killer was when he stopped paying Illinois income taxes. If he had truly stayed a resident he would have paid the taxes, but he decided that he had officially moved to Washington in 2009.

How about Neil Abercrombie? He could testify he saw Rahm living in Chicago at “social events”. heh heh

Commie Bus Tour Supporting All Forms of Revolution, Including Violence" Coming To A Town Near You

Commies Who Support "All Forms of Revolution, Including Violence" Go on 'Red Bus Tour' Across America

from POed Patriot

As you cruise around your home town this year, you may see a Red Bus full of young people displaying communist flags and shirts passing you by. No Need to Worry, they are just Communists who Support Violent Revolution.

The Southern California(SoCal) Young Communist League (YCL), a branch of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) Young Communist League, is planning to hold ”Educational Classes” about ”Marxism and the Political Movement”. They plan to have these Communist “Schools” in 4 Different Cities Across the United States between February and April of this Year.

According to the SoCal YCL’s website the “Schools” will include:

“lively classes and discussions:Marxism and the Political Moment: Building the movement for change; The Crisis of Capitalism Today: Causes of Crisis and the Class Struggle; Working Class and the Labor Movement; Racism, Immigrant Rights, women’s rights, LGTB rights and the struggle for equality; The CPUSA and YCL, envisioning Bill of Rights Socialism and how to get there. Also plenty of cultural, social and recreational activities.”
. The First “School” will be held at 1251 So. St. Andrews Place Los Angeles, California followed by Unknown Locations in Texas, Florida and Somewhere in the North East.

The Red School-Bus Tour is starting February 18th in Los Angeles, California. This will be the first of four regional schools starting in LA and ending in the North East. The rest of the tour will include TX, the South East and the North East with about one school a month. A full schedule will be posted soon with all the stops and dates as details are arranged.

The School in Los Angeles like all the stops on the tour will be over a weekend and feature local Party and YCL leaders as well as National YCL and Party Leaders both speaking and teaching. And of course we will have rich cultural events in between sessions.

As an added bonus for the LA school, the entire YCL delegation to the 17th World Festival of Youth and Students in South Africa ( will be together for a special discussion about the festival. Full with Pictures and video of the event.

We will also be keeping those of you comrades who cannot attend updated both on the YCLUSA.ORG site and the Facebook page ( so that you can follow the event from anywhere!

Questions on the Red School-Bus Tour? If you want to attend one of the schools contact ycl@yclusa.orgto register or for further details

According to the CPUSA YCL website, their Motto is "Unite and Fight" in order to Bring around 'Socialism'.

Fight Whom you Ask? The Enemy of Course.

Who is the Enemy? Capitalism and the Ruling Class:

"The enemy is not unions, it is not immigrants, nor any other scapegoat. It’s the corporations and banks that close factories, cut wages and benefits, and force people, especially youth, to work for minimum and sub-minimum wages or join the military in order to get an education or an income.

The enemy is not overseas. It is not the people of Iraq, Cuba, Venezuela, or China. The enemy is the ruling class right here at home."

How will they "Fight" this enemy that they find more of a threat than Cuba, Venezuela, Iraq or China?

Well According to the SoCal YCL Website, with Every Form of Revolution, including Violence:

"we support all forms of revolution, which historically have included violent forms but only were they successful or lasting and positive when the circumstances had called for it"

Wild Thing's comment.......

They might as well call themselves Friends of Obama.....but hmmmm he is one of the ruling class as president. LOL big OOPS for these communists.

Soros spending his I hate America money again.

Maybe Hanoi Jane will join them or follow them in that Veggie Bus she wanted to do across America a few years ago. Traitor Hanoi Jane was going to take a cross-country bus tour to call for an end to U.S. military operations in Iraq. She said her bus tour against the war would run on “vegetable oil.”

Hawaii Gov. Gives Up Search For Obama's Birth Certificate

Video dated January 20, 2011

Hawaii Gov. gives up search for Obama

Abercrombie finds only notation in a log book

Republican Congressman Bill Posey of Florida introduced legislation last year to require future presidential candidates provide proof of United States citizenship for the Presidency.

From LR, July 2, 2009, “3 libertarian-leaning Congressman sign on to Posey bill demanding Birth Certificate for Presidential eligibility” July 9, 2009:

While it may be too late to revoke Barack Hussein Obama’s hold on the Presidency, it is not too late to make the issue of his birth outside of the United States, most likely in Kenya, an issue for Campaign 2012.

With that in mind, a coalition of conservatives and libertarians around the Nation are pushing for the enactment of HR 1503, introduced by freshman Republican Congressman of Florida Bill Posey. The legislation would require proof of birth in the United States of America or its Territories to run for the office of the Presidency. This shall take the form of a valid hospital-issued birth certificate, and not just a receipt for such a certificate as Obama has released.

The legislation got off to a slow start. Only Rep. Bill Goodlatte (R) of Virginia, agreed to sign on. Then, Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, came on board. Within weeks, 5 Republican Congressmen have signed on. Besides the 3, co-sponsors include: Reps. Marsha Blackburn (TN), John Carter (TX), John Culberson (TX), Ted Poe (TX), and Dan Burton (IN).

The language from the Bill:

“To amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to require the principal campaign committee of a candidate for election to the office of President to include with the committee`s statement of organization a copy of the candidate`s birth certificate, together with such other documentation as may be necessary to establish that the candidate meets the qualifications for eligibility…”

The legislation died a slow death in committee with Democrats having a big majority in the House. Also of note, on the Senate side, Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma vowed to support the Posey Bill if it made it out of the House, writing to a constituent, “I will likely support it.” See LR article, “Sen. Tom Coburn vows to support Posey Bill”.

Now a bombshell announcement out of Hawaii.

From Fox Nation “Hawaii Governor Claims Record of Obama’s Birth ‘Exists in Archives’ But Can’t Produce the Vital Document” Jan. 20:

Pressure was mounting on Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie amid increasing confusion over whether President Obama was born there.

Abercrombie said on Tuesday that an investigation had unearthed papers proving Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961.

He told Honolulu’s Star-Advertiser: ‘It actually exists in the archives, written down,’ he said.

But it became apparent that what had been discovered was an unspecified listing or notation of Obama’s birth that someone had made in the state archives and not a birth certificate.

Add Rush Limbaugh to big list of 'birthers'

Read more: Add Rush Limbaugh to big list of 'birthers'

Rush Limbaugh calls Abercrombie failure “stunning”

Now Rush Limbaugh has called Abercrombie’s admission “stunning”.

Rush spent nearly his entire first segment Friday talking about this story.

“Remember, he started out, the whole reason for doing this, was to get it off the table so it wasn’t an election issue for 2012.

“But he’s done the exact opposite now. How many of us could get away with saying, ‘Yeah, there’s a little notation somewhere there in the archives, but we can’t find the birth certificate.’”


Rush Limbaugh opened his top-rated program today asking why Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie appears to have no support from the White House in his publicized quest to resolve the growing doubt about Barack Obama's eligibility for the Oval Office.

"Where's Obama? Where's the White House? Is this guy flying alone? Neil Abercrombie on his own on this? So much of this is difficult to fathom, to believe," the king of talk radio said.

Limbaugh noted WND's story Wednesday that has led to established media such as the Daily Mail of London declaring in a headline: "Hawaii governor claims record of Obama's birth 'exists in archives' but cannot produce the vital document."

"The story originated at WorldNetDaily in this country earlier, and of course if it originates anywhere outside the mainstream press, the mainstream press will not acknowledge it," Limbaugh told his listeners.

Abercrombie said in a Honolulu Star-Advertiser interview published Tuesday that he wanted to resolve the issue because he feared it would jeopardize Obama's re-election in 2012.

"But he's done the exact opposite now," Limbaugh said. "How many of us could get away with saying, 'Yeah there's a little notation somewhere there in the archives, but we can't find the birth certificate.'"

ABC News ran a story on its website leading with, "Officials in Hawaii say they have located President Obama's birth certificate indicating that he was born in the state, but have yet to produce the document at the heart of a long-simmering conspiracy theory."

Puzzling over Abercrombie's investigation, Limbaugh began by pointing out the governor's knowledge of the "ins and outs of electoral politics" as a veteran of 20 years in the U.S. House of Representatives.

But Abercrombie made a mistake, Limbaugh said, in announcing his investigation in December before he was sure that he could produce the proof.

Abercrombie told the Honolulu paper that resolving the issue is "a matter of principle with me."

"I knew his mom and dad. I was here when he was born. Anybody who wants to ask a question honestly could have had their answer already," Abercrombie said.

However, Limbaugh countered, nobody has "come forward to definitively prove it."

"In fact, most government officials have apparently done their best to seal it all off," he said. "Whatever there is, they've sealed it all off, and they've tried to pooh-pooh any interest in it. And they have attempted to impugn those who have interest in it."

For liberals, he said, the issue is no big deal, "It's merely a presidential, constitutional requirement."

The Constitution, as far as liberals are concerned, he said, is an "impediment to them."

Limbaugh commented on the Daily Mail story's statement that most theories about Obama's birth "have been dismissed by many in public office and the media, and have been found to be misleading or generally untrue."

"It doesn't say most theories have been dismissed by public records officials," Limbaugh said. "It just says dismissed by many in public office and in the media. Well, big whoop."

Limbaugh launched into speculation about why Abercrombie would take up the quest, seemingly on his own.

"I would think that if Abercrombie is going to do this, he's not the Lone Ranger," Limbaugh said. "He's gotta be calling the White House, 'OK, look, we've got a potential problem here; I want to find this thing, and I want to make it public.'"

If that happened, Limbaugh conjectured, somebody in the White House didn't say no, "because Abercrombie is still alive."

"If they had said don't do it, and Abercrombie is still doing it … I don't want to even think of the consequences of that."

The issue shouldn't be difficult to resolve, he insisted.

If somebody wanted your birth certificate, and you don't have it, what do you do? You go to the state where you were born, go to the vital records, and you go down there and you make a copy of it, and produce it, and let it be seen," he said.

Originally, Limbaugh said, the speculation about why Obama has not released his long-form birth certificate was that he wanted to "toy" with "birthers," to illustrate that they are a bunch of "loony tune, kook right-wingers."

In the meantime, he said, numerous lawsuits challenging Obama's eligibility have been thrown out, leading to the conclusion that "he was born in Hawaii, it isn't any big deal."

But now, in the wake of Abercrombie's apparent admissions, Obama supporters, he said, still cannot produce the proof.

"This is stunning to me," Limbaugh said. "(They) still can't prove it."

Limbaugh then speculated that it's possible Abercrombie's moves could be "a giant head-fake."

"It's hard for me to believe that Neil Abercrombie just one day woke up and on his own and without consultation said, 'This birth thing bugs me. I'm going to call a press conference, and I'm going to tell people I was there when he was born, and I knew his mom and dad, and he was born here, and I can prove it."

If Abercrombie is acting on his own "that's just unbelievable," he said.

"The alternative is he's not acting on his own. This is all part of a continuing head-fake, and that at some point after a lot of people have gotten revved up – the U.K. Daily Mail online is more mainstream than anywhere else in America this has been – so it ratchets up, it ratchets up, and a couple of years down the road, guess what, the thing is found, and can you imagine the air that would be let out of people's sails then?"

Limbaugh said he believes the Obama administration is capable of that kind of "trick."

"Why is the governor of Hawaii vowing to do his best to end the controversy?" Limbaugh asked.

"Where is the president on this? Where is the president's vow to end the debate over his birth?"

Democrats and Their Power Play With Seating For Dictator Obama's State Of Union Address

Peter King And Anthony Weiner Get Into Shouting Match On Fox ~ this happened just 5 months ago.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner and Republican Congressman Peter King have certainly had their differences of opinion.

Now, the two elected officials will be sitting along side each other at President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday night.

Wild Thing's comment......

Democrats were happily ignoring republicans while they had solid majorities in both Senate & House. Bi-partisanship was dead.

I think it is a very bad idea to do this. And as you all stated on here the other day it is all to make the left look like a larger amount of people. The proof is in that the left did not ask for this last year or the year before and never has when they were in the majority. The left has been pushing their demands on the right more then any other time in my life and this is just one more horrible thing from the left.

Let the Nation see graphically how few Democrats there are left in the House!!!

No sooner were the votes counted in the House that new US Senator Marco Rubio fired off this press release:

Greta Wire

January 19th


Applauds House Vote To Repeal

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio today issued the following statement applauding the House vote to repeal ObamaCare and calling on Senate Democrat leadership to hold a similar up-or-down vote:

“In voting to repeal ObamaCare, our colleagues in the House have taken an important step. We need to repeal the federal health care law and replace it with common sense reforms that will lower health care costs and get more Americans insured. ObamaCare creates uncertainty for job creators, threatens Medicare as Floridians know it and lays the foundation for government-run health care. Instead, we need to replace it with reforms that promote competition, empower patients with more high-quality health-care options, combat fraud and integrate the latest technologies to make the system more efficient and the patient better informed. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Senate to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and hope the Democrat leadership will heed the American people’s call by allowing an up-or-down vote.”


Wild Thing's comment........

I understandn his point about the important thing is how he votes. But oh Marco it would be so much better if all the Republicans said NO way to the dems about this seating thing.

Other then that I LOVE everything else he said!!!!!

Pvt Barney Hajiro, Oldest Living Medal of Honor Recipient Dies in Hawaii

Hajiro was born in Hawaii, the second of nine children born to Japanese immigrant parents who had moved from Hiroshima to Maui during World War I. Two of his siblings died in infancy. The family was poor, and Hajiro left school to work, first in the sugarcane fields of Maui and later as a stevedore in Honolulu. Shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, he was drafted into the U.S. Army and performed menial labor as part of an engineering battalion.

In March 1943, he volunteered to join the newly-formed 442nd Regimental Combat Team, composed of Nisei (second-generation Japanese Americans) like himself.

Oldest living Medal of Honor recipient dies in Hawaii

Hawaii News Now

Hawaii is mourning the loss of World War II veteran Barney Hajiro. The Oahu man was the oldest living Medal of Honor recipient in America.

"He wants to be remembered as a simple person," said son Glenn Hajiro.

Barney Hajiro, 94, served in the Army's famed 442nd Regimental Combat Team. He single-handedly destroyed two German machine gun nests during the rescue of the "Lost Battalion" in France. He was shot in the cheek, shoulder and wrist, leaving his left arm paralyzed.

"There were snipers, lot of shooting, and people were saying it's going to be suicide, but he said he had a duty to do," recalled Glenn Hajiro.

More than half a century after the bloody battle, President Bill Clinton presented the Medal of Honor to the Nisei veteran in 2000.

"He said he was a little bit excited and he was proud to receive the medal for the boys. He said, 'It's not for me. It's for the boys.' He would always say that," said Glenn Hajiro.

Glenn Hajiro was by his father's side for the final moments on Friday morning.

"His dream was to be a track star, but he only went to the 8th grade. He never got to do his thing, so I told him, on his death bed, to run," said Hajiro's son.

Human Events

In addition to his Medal of Honor he was also awarded the British Military Medal and the French Legion d’honneur. He was drafted then in March of 1943 he volunteered for the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. The 442nd went on to become the highest decorated unit in the history of our armed forces. Please take a moment to read the citation of a hero.


Private Barney F. Hajiro distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism in action on 19, 22, and 29 October 1944, in the vicinity of Bruyeres and Biffontaine, eastern France.

Private Hajiro, while acting as a sentry on top of an embankment on 19 October 1944, in the vicinity of Bruyeres, France, rendered assistance to allied troops attacking a house 200 yards away by exposing himself to enemy fire and directing fire at an enemy strong point. He assisted the unit on his right by firing his automatic rifle and killing or wounding two enemy snipers.

On 22 October 1944, he and one comrade took up an outpost security position about 50 yards to the right front of their platoon, concealed themselves, and ambushed an 18-man, heavily armed, enemy patrol, killing two, wounding one, and taking the remainder as prisoners.

On 29 October 1944, in a wooded area in the vicinity of Biffontaine, France, Private Hajiro initiated an attack up the slope of a hill referred to as "Suicide Hill" by running forward approximately 100 yards under fire. He then advanced ahead of his comrades about 10 yards, drawing fire and spotting camouflaged machine gun nests. He fearlessly met fire with fire and single-handedly destroyed two machine gun nests and killed two enemy snipers.

As a result of Private Hajiro's heroic actions, the attack was successful. Private Hajiro's extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon him, his unit, and the United States Army.

Marine Lance Corporal James Blake Miller

"I ain't no hero. That is one thing I wish could truly be clarified. I'm no more a hero than anyone over there. Every man, every woman that is not in the states, over there doing what they're doing…just to ensure that people here can enjoy their everyday life, and have the freedom that they do. They're all heroes." - Marine Lance Corporal James Blake Miller

Photo By Luis Sinco/ Los Angeles Times

James Blake Miller (born July 10, 1984) is an American Iraq War veteran, who served in the United States Marine Corps and was dubbed "the Marlboro Man"/"Marlboro Marine", after an iconic, close-up photograph of his dirt-smeared, battle-weary face, with a cigarette planted in his mouth, was published on the front page of more than 150 American newspapers in 2004.

Miller grew up in Jonancy, Kentucky. As a boy, he embraced religion, even going so far as to become an ordained minister. Not interested in working in the coal mines, Miller joined the United States Marine Corps with the intention to eventually work in law enforcement..Before shipping off, Miller took his high school sweetheart, Jessica Holbrooks, to the mountains outside Pikeville, Kentucky and asked her to marry him after his return; she agreed.


Miller became part of Charlie Company of the 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, a unit which took part in the November 2004 assault on Fallujah. Entering the city on November 8, 2004, they encountered heavy fire almost immediately, and were pinned down all night at a traffic circle. In the morning, the unit took fire again and had to run into a house for cover. After securing the house, Miller, the platoon's radioman, called in tank fire on a nearby house. In the moments after the tank blasts shook the home they were located in, embedded Los Angeles Times photographer Luis Sinco took a photo of Miller propped against a wall, smoking a cigarette; Miller's face was smeared with war paint, blood trickled from his right ear and bridge of his nose, and he was momentarily deafened by the cannon blasts, staring at the sunrise. In explaining the photograph, Sinco stated that "His expression caught my eye. To me, it said: terrified, exhausted, and glad just to be alive. I recognized that look because that's how I felt too." Miller was 20 at the time

Marlboro Marine

Sinco's photograph of Miller appeared on the front page of over 150 newspapers. CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather singled out the photo for its excellence, and turned the then-unidentified Marine into a celebrity. Sinco was told to find the Marine for a follow-up story and tracked down Miller four days later in an auditorium near Fallujah's civic center. Miller was embarrassed about the photo's impact, but shared information with Sinco. The two would remain friends thereafter.

After his identity was made public, people sent him care packages, including lots of cigarettes; President George W. Bush sent cigars, candy and memorabilia from the White House. The forward command center soon featured a large blowup of the photo. Then-Major General Richard F. Natonski, head of the 1st Marine Division, made a special trip to see Miller, to Miller's surprise. The general shook Miller's hand and let him know that, because Americans had "connected" with his photo, and nobody wanted to see him wounded or dead, he was offered a trip home. Miller turned down the offer because he did not want to leave his comrades behind.


Because of his struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder, Miller is now separated from his wife and lives in a trailer behind his father's house. He is unable to discuss certain things that happened in Fallujah, and has joined the Highwaymen, a motorcycle club under constant scrutiny by law enforcement.


Wild Thing's comment.......

I pray for James Blake Miller and others that have PTSD, I can promise him and all our Veterans I will never forget and will always remember them in my prayers each day. I pray they will get the help they need, good help and not just some leftie psychologist leading them in the wrong direction and making it worse.

Our Heroes need to know, and own it that they are the reason America has been the greatest country in the world. And that there is a grateful nation so filled with pride and a full heart of thanks for how they had to sacrifice soooooo much each day, each minute of every day.
There are visible wounds and there are the kind that are deep inside that a person passing by does not see. Both kinds need healing and patience and understanding.

Rep. Paul Ryan Firm On Complete Repealing Obamacare

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan talking to CNN’s John King this week about the absolute necessity of repealing the entire ObamaCare law and replacing it with a “patient-centered” health care system. King kept trying to get Ryan to say he would be willing to work on some specific changes to ObamaCare since the repeal bill can’t be passed in the Senate (according to King) and wouldn’t be signed by Obama. But Ryan stood firm, insisting that it would not make sense to “tinker around edges” of a law Republicans believe is bad to the core and needs to be repealed.

Ryan will give the GOP response to the State of the Union Address


Wild Thing's comment.......

I think Ryan should begin by saying “I found the birth certificate.” ....Heh Heh

Ryan can say a lot —and pungently— in three minutes. Plus he is young which is good, fit good-looking Irisher. Some or all of those things might cause some that are not awake to wake the heck up....finally.

Here is what needs to be said about Obama's State of the Union Address.

In State of Union Address Obama to Push for New Spending as GOP Demands Deep Budget Cuts

FOX News

Obama will call for new government spending on infrastructure, education and research in his State of the Union address Tuesday, sharpening his response to Republicans in Congress who are demanding deep budget cuts, people familiar with the speech said.

Mr. Obama will argue that the U.S., even while trying to reduce its budget deficit, must make targeted investments to foster job growth and boost U.S. competitiveness in the world economy.

The new spending could include initiatives aimed at building the renewable-energy sector—which received billions of dollars in stimulus funding—and rebuilding roads to improve transportation, people familiar with the matter said. Money to restructure the No Child Left Behind law's testing mandates and institute more competitive grants also could be included.

While proposing new spending, Mr. Obama also will lay out significant budget cuts elsewhere, people familiar with the plans say, though they will likely fall short of what Republican lawmakers have requested.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Can we please hear a resounding chorus of "YOU LIE!" this Tuesday? It would do wonders for the morale of the American people.

Tango Mike/Mike ~ Master Sergeant Roy P. Benavides Medal of Honor Recipient ~ Vietnam Veteran

Note from the person that made the video:

"I did this as a way to honor all those who have struggled to come back from serving our country in times of war. The most interesting part for me was something I didn't find out until after I created this photoplay, was that this was Roy's second tour. He had been so gravely wounded, by stepping on a landmine, on his first tour that he was drummed out of the Army after returning. Roy built his body back up and returned to the service after proving himself fit and joined the elite Green Beret's and went back to Vietnam for a second tour for which he received the Medal of Honor."

This is a well done video that honors Roy P. Benavidez remarkable courage in Vietnam that earned the Medal Of Honor. How remarkable was he? The Navy named a ship after this soldier extraordinaire.

As the medevac chopper landed the wounded were examined one by one. Staff Sergeant Roy Benavidez could only hear what was going on around him. He had over thirty seven puncture wounds. His intestines were exposed. He could not see as his eyes were caked in blood and unable to open. Neither could he speak, his jaw broken, clubbed by a North Vietnamese rifle. But he knew what was happening, and it was the scariest moment of his life, even more so than the earlier events of the day. He lay in a body bag, bathed in his own blood. Jerry Cottingham, a friend screamed "That's Benavidez. Get a doc". When the doctor arrived he placed his hand on Roy's chest to feel for a heartbeat. He pronounced him dead. The physician shook his head. "There's nothing I can do for him." As the doctor bent over to zip up the body bag. Benavidez did the only thing he could think of to let the doctor know that he was alive. He spit in the doctor's face. The surprised doctor reversed Roy's condition from dead to "He won't make it, but we'll try".

The 32-year-old son of a Texas sharecropper had just performed for six hours one of the most remarkable feats of the Vietnam War. Benavidez, part Yaqui Indian and part Mexican, was a seventh-grade dropout and an orphan who grew up taunted by the term "dumb Mexican." But, as Ronald Reagan noted, if the story of what he accomplished was made into a movie, no one would believe it really happened.

Roy Benavidez's ordeal began at Loc Ninh, a Green Beret outpost near the Cambodian border. It was 1:30 p.m., May 2, 1968. A chaplain was holding a prayer service around a jeep for the sergeant and several other soldiers. Suddenly, shouts rang out from a nearby short-wave radio. "Get us out of here!" someone screamed. "For God's sake, get us out!"

A 12-man team consisting of Sergeant First Class Leroy Wright, Staff Sergeant Lloyd "Frenchie" Mousseau, Specialist Four Brian O'Connor and nine Nung tribesmen monitoring enemy troop movements in the jungle had found itself surrounded by a North Vietnamese army battalion. With out orders, Benavidez volunteered so quickly that he didn't even bring his M-16 when he dashed for the helicopter preparing for a rescue attempt. The sole weapon he carried was a bowie knife on his belt."I'm coming with you," he told the three crew members.

Airborne, they spotted the soldiers in a tight circle. A few hundred enemy troops surrounded them in the jungle, some within 25 yards of the Americans' position. The chopper dropped low, ran into withering fire and quickly retreated. Spotting a small clearing 75 yards away, Benavidez told the pilot, "Over there, over there."

The helicopter reached the clearing and hovered 10 feet off the ground. Benavidez made the sign of the cross, jumped out carrying a medic bag and began running the 75 yards towards the trapped men. Almost immediately, Benavidez was hit by an AK-47 slug in his right leg. He stumbled and fell, but got back up convincing himself that he'd only snagged a thorn bush and kept running to the brush pile where Wright's men lay. An exploding hand grenade knocked him down and ripped his face with shrapnel. He shouted prayers, got up again and staggered to the men.

Four of the soldiers were dead, the other eight wounded and pinned down in two groups. Benavidez bound their wounds, injected morphine and, ignoring NVA bullets and grenades, passed around ammunition that he had taken from several bodies and armed himself with an AK. Then Benavidez directed air strikes and called for the Huey helicopter to a landing near one group. While calling in support he was shot again in the right thigh, his second gunshot wound. He dragged the dead and wounded aboard. The chopper lifted a few feet off the ground and moved toward the second group, with Benavidez running beneath it, firing a rifle he had picked up. He spotted the body of the team leader Sergeant First Class Wright. Ordering the other soldiers to crawl toward the chopper, he retrieved a pouch dangling from the dead man's neck; in the pouch were classified papers with radio codes and call signs. As he shoved the papers into his shirt, a bullet struck his stomach and a grenade shattered his back. The helicopter, barely off the ground, suddenly crashed, its pilot shot dead.

Coughing blood, Benavidez made his way to the Huey and pulled the wounded from the wreckage, forming a small perimeter. As he passed out ammunition taken from the dead, the air support he had earlier radioed for arrived. Jets and helicopter gunships strafed threatening enemy soldiers while Benavidez tended the wounded. "Are you hurt bad, Sarge?" one soldier asked. "Hell, no," said Benavidez, about to collapse from blood loss. "I've been hit so many times I don't give a damn no more."

While mortar shells burst everywhere, Benavidez called in Phantoms "danger close". Enemy fire raked the perimeter. Several of the wounded were hit again, including Benavidez. By this time he had blood streaming down his face, blinding him. Still he called in air strikes, adjusting their targets by sound. Several times, pilots thought he was dead, but then his voice would come back on the radio, calling for closer strikes. Throughout the fighting, Benavidez, a devout Catholic, made the sign of the cross so many times, his arms were "were going like an airplane prop". But he never gave into fear.

Finally, a helicopter landed. "Pray and move out," Benavidez told the men as he helped each one aboard. As he carried a seriously wounded Frenchie Mousseau over his shoulder a fallen NVA soldier stood up, swung his rifle and clubbed Benavidez in the head. Benavidez fell, rolled over and got up just as the soldier lunged forward with his bayonet. Benavidez grabbed it, slashing his right hand, and pulled his attacker toward him. With his left hand, he drew his own bowie knife and stabbed the NVA but not before the bayonet poked completely through his left forearm. As Benavidez dragged Mousseau to the chopper, he saw two more NVA materialize out of the jungle. He snatched a fallen AK-47 rifle and shot both. Benavidez made one more trip to the clearing and came back with a Vietnamese interpreter. Only then did the sergeant let the others pull him aboard the helicopter.

Blood dripped from the door as the chopper lumbered into the air. Benavidez was holding in his intestines with his hand. Bleeding almost into unconsciousness, Benavidez lay against the badly wounded Mousseau and held his hand. Just before they landed at the Medevac hospital, "I felt his fingers dig into my palm," Benavidez recalled, "his arm twitching and jumping as if electric current was pouring through his body into mine" At Loc Ninh, Benavidez was so immobile they placed him with the dead. Even after he spit in the doctor's face and was taken from the body bag, Benavidez was considered a goner.

Benavidez spent almost a year in hospitals to recover from his injuries. He had seven major gunshot wounds, twenty-eight shrapnel holes and both arms had been slashed by a bayonet. Benavidez had shrapnel in his head, scalp, shoulder, buttocks, feet, and legs. His right lung was destroyed. He had injuries to his mouth and back of his head from being clubbed with a rifle butt. One of the AK-47 bullets had entered his back exiting just beneath his heart. He had won the battle and lived. When told his one man battle was awesome and extraordinary, Benavidez replied: "No, that's duty."

Wright and Mousseau were each awarded the Distinguish Service Cross posthumously. Although Master Sergeant Benavidez's commander felt that he deserved the Congressional Medal of Honor for his valor in saving eight lives, he put Roy in for the Distinguished Service Cross. The process for awarding a Medal of Honor would have taken much longer, and he was sure Benavidez would die before he got it. The recommendation for the Distinguish Service Cross was rushed through approval channels and Master Sergeant Benavidez was presented the award by General William C. Westmoreland while he was recovering from his wounds at Fort Sam Houston's Hospital.

Years later, his former commander learned that Benavidez had survived the war. The officer also learned more details of the sergeant's mission and concluded that Benavidez merited a higher honor. Years of red tape followed until finally on February 24, 1981, President Reagan told White House reporters "you are going to hear something you would not believe if it were a script." Reagan then read Roy Benavidez's Citation for the Medal of Honor.

Benavidez however, did not regard himself as a hero. He said of his actions. "The real heroes are the ones who gave their lives for their country, I don't like to be called a hero. I just did what I was trained to do."

In addition to being a recipient of the Medal Of Honor, MSG Benavidez was the recipient of the Combat Infantry Badge for his Viet Nam war service, the Purple Heart Medal with 4 Oak Leaf Clusters, Viet Nam Campaign Medal with 4 Battle Stars, Viet Nam Service Medal, Air Medal, Master Parachutist Badge, Vietnamese Parachutist Badge, Republic of Viet Nam Cross of Gallantry with Palm, and other numerous decorations.

Upon retirement Master Sergeant Benavidez lived in El Campo, Texas, with his wife, Lala, and three children, Noel,Yvette and Denise. He was a member of the: Medal of Honor Society, Legion of Valor, Veterans of Foreign War, Special Operations Association, Alamo Silver Wings Airborne Association, and Special Forces Association, The 82nd Airborne Association, West Point Honorary Alumni Association, and countless other organizations.

An elementary school in Houston, Texas is named Roy P. Benavidez.

Master Sergeant Roy Benavidez died on November 29, 1998. Over 1,500 people attended his funeral to say goodbye. He is buried in the shade of a live oak tree at the Fort Sam Houston National Cementary, a fitting final resting place for someone who gave so much of himself to this great nation. In addition to his heroic actions in combat, he will also be remembered for his work with youths. He spoke at schools and colleges and even runaway shelters. He promoted patriotism, staying-in school, encouraged continuing education, and drug free programs for students. Vision Quest, an organization known for working with problem youths, named a youth boot camp Fort Roy P. Benavidez in Uvalde, Texas after him. Master Sergeant Benavidez was further recognized by the naming of the Roy P. Benavidez Elementary School in Houston, Texas.

In August 1999, the U.S. Army dedicated the $14 million Master Sergeant Roy P. Benavidez Special Operations Logistics Complex at Fort Bragg, NC.

On September 14, 2000, the U.S. Navy Secretary Richard Danzig announced that the U.S. Navy plans to name a new ship after Master Sergeant Roy P. Benavidez. The ship, scheduled to be christened next summer as the USNS Benavidez, will be the seventh in a class of large, medium speed roll-on/roll-off sealift ships. Army Secretary Louis Caldera made these remarks on the Navy's announcement:

"Master Sergeant Roy Benavidez was a true American hero, rising from humble origins in South Texas to become an Army legen. Wounded over 40 times as he saved the lives of eight fellow soldiers under heavy fire in Vietnam, he always said he was only doing his duty to his fellow soldiers and to the country he loved. The Navy's recognition of his selfless service is truly an appropriate tribute to Master Sgt. Benavidez's memory, and to the ideals of our nation that he epitomized."

If you would like to read more about Master Sergeant Roy Benavidez's life, before, during and after the Vietnam War, then I recommend that you read his book co-authored with John R. Craig, "Medal of Honor - A Vietnam Warrior's Story" (Brassey's, Inc, 1995).

Obama Begging To Get 2nd Term Trying To Fix Economy: “we're going to build stuff and invent stuff”

As the president gears up for the 2012 campaign, he may need to brush up on his stump speeches. Sure, he’s canned the teleprompters recently, but telling America we need to “build stuff and invent stuff” isn’t really the epitome of eloquence.


Wild Thing's comment......

Yea invent new stuff so he can ban it! How about letting us DRILL FOR OIL you FREAK!

Ban the light bulb, ban drilling, tax the “rich”, collectivist social policies, regulate, regulate, regulate. Oh, and by the way, go invent something.

What an incredible piece of unmittigated GALL he has.

I am going to take his advice and start a business selling Hawaiian birth certificates. I think I know who my first client will be!

Gov. of Hawaii Neil Abercrombie:" Hawaii Won't Release Obama Birth Info"

APNewsBreak: Hawaii won't release Obama birth info

Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie will end his quest to prove President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii because it’s against state law to release private documents, his office said Friday.

State Attorney General David Louie told the governor he can’t disclose an individual’s birth documentation without a person’s consent, Abercrombie spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said.

“There is nothing more that Gov. Abercrombie can do within the law to produce a document,” said Dela Cruz. “Unfortunately, there are conspirators who will continue to question the citizenship of our president.”

Abercrombie, who was a friend of Obama’s parents and knew him as a child, launched an effort last month to find a way to dispel conspiracy theories that the president was born elsewhere. The governor said at the time he was bothered by people who questioned Obama’s birthplace for political reasons.

But Abercrombie’s investigation reached a dead end when Louie told him the law restricted his options.

Hawaii’s privacy laws have long barred the release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who doesn’t have a tangible interest.


Wild Thing's comment........

Oh my gosh......Hahahahaha

Sorry I know this is a very serious matter, but the drama of it, the lies by so many and the whole thing is like some bad movie, bad script, and actors that can't act. hahahaha.....And we are supposed to believe what we are being told.

"State Attorney General David Louie told the governor he can't disclose an individual's birth documentation without a person's consent, Abercrombie spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said."

Laughable. If Obama said go for it governor it would happen, all he should have to do is ask Obama to say it is OK.

Only a sycophant would argue there’s nothing unusual about this bizarre issue.

The Hawaii has done more damage to Obama then to help him. hahaha He has really made it look even more like Obama is a fraud and liar about his birth certificate.

Obama didn't rise to power alone. There were some shenanigans. And money. Lots of money. Whoever controls him won't allow him to be "dethroned" until they are done with him!! What Abecrombie did was raise the profile and give credence to those of us with questions.

This is kind of like Obama’s mother’s college friend who talked openly about seeing Ann and hearing her say that her mother hadn’t even seen baby Obama. A reporter called her to clarify her statement and the woman made a statement to the effect of: I will not make any more statements per the request of the President of the United States.

What a colossal fine mess he’s made for himsefl and the Kenyan....LOLOLOLOL

How to Freeze the Debt Ceiling Without Risking Default

How to Freeze the Debt Ceiling Without Risking Default

The Wall Street Journal

By PAT TOOMEY ( a Republican, is a U.S. senator from Pennsylvania)

As members of Congress debate whether to raise the U.S. debt ceiling—the limit on our government's debt—we should all agree on at least one thing: Under no circumstances is it acceptable for the U.S. to default on its debt. Not only are we morally obligated to honor our debts, but we benefit greatly from the nearly universal conviction that those who lend to us will always be repaid, on time and in full. We should never undermine that conviction.

Fortunately, even if Congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling, a default on our debt need not follow when our borrowings reach their limit in the next few months. I intend to introduce legislation to make sure of this.

For months, some political leaders and commentators have argued that failure to raise the debt ceiling would necessarily cause the U.S. to default on its debt. President Obama's Council of Economic Advisors chairman, Austan Goolsbee, recently warned, "If we get to the point where you've damaged the full faith and credit of the United States, that would be the first default in history caused purely by insanity. I don't see why anybody's talking about playing chicken with the debt ceiling."

In fact, if Congress refuses to raise the debt ceiling, the federal government will still have far more than enough money to fully service our debt. Next year, for instance, about 6.5% of all projected federal government expenditures will go to interest on our debt, and tax revenue is projected to cover about 67% of all government expenditures. With roughly 10 times more income than needed to honor our debt obligations, why would we ever default?

To make absolutely sure, I intend to introduce legislation that would require the Treasury to make interest payments on our debt its first priority in the event that the debt ceiling is not raised. This would not only ensure the continued confidence of investors at home and abroad, but would enable us to have an honest debate about the consequences of our eventual decision about the debt ceiling.

If we do not raise it, the government's tax revenue will enable us to fund roughly two-thirds of projected expenditures, including interest payments. Without the ability to borrow the other third, spending cuts would be sudden and severe: Projects would be postponed, some vendor payments would be delayed, certain programs would be suspended, and many government employees might be furloughed. Default would easily be avoided, but these cuts would certainly be disruptive. That's why I hope we can avoid this scenario.

But it would be even worse simply to raise the debt ceiling without regaining control of federal spending. The recent surge in spending, both in absolute dollars and as a percentage of our GDP, has driven us to record deficits and an explosion of debt. The growth in discretionary spending has been the most dramatic, but in the future mandatory entitlement spending will be the deficit driver. Congress must address both in order to put the government back on a sustainable fiscal path.

The vote on whether to raise the debt ceiling—and, if so, by how much—is our best opportunity to insist that any increase in our nation's debt be coupled with concrete steps toward fiscal sanity. Congress should make increasing our debt contingent on immediate cuts in spending and effective reforms of the spending process that helped get us into this mess.

For too many years, Congress has ignored or exacerbated the looming fiscal crisis created by overspending. Last fall's elections were largely a call to finally deal with this imminent threat, and the vote on the debt ceiling is Congress's opportunity to begin making real progress. We can do so without jeopardizing the full faith and credit of our country—and we should.

This article was sent to me in an e-mail sent out by Sen. Jim DeMint .

Dear Fellow Conservative:

I’m writing to share an important Wall Street Journal op-ed written by newly-elected Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA), which outlines how we can freeze the debt ceiling without defaulting on our debt obligations. Senator Toomey’s argument is nothing short of a game changer in the debt limit debate.
Senator Toomey correctly points out that if the debt limit is reached later this year, the government will still have plenty of money to service the national debt. He writes,
“In fact, if Congress refuses to raise the debt ceiling, the federal government will still have far more than enough money to fully service our debt. Next year, for instance, about 6.5% of all projected federal government expenditures will go to interest on our debt, and tax revenue is projected to cover about 67% of all government expenditures. With roughly 10 times more income than needed to honor our debt obligations, why would we ever default?”

Click Here to Read Toomey’s Op-Ed

Americans should reject the sky-is-falling-hysteria coming from President Obama and demand that Congress stop the debt and balance the budget. You can add your voice to this effort by signing the “Stop the Debt” pledge at

Now is the time to make fundamental, long-term budget reforms that will stop the spending and save our country from fiscal ruin.

When the Senate considers the debt limit next month, Republicans must do everything they can to block an increase in the debt limit. Senator Toomey has presented the facts they need to fight back when they’re accused of threatening to put the nation in default.

I want to thank each of you who helped elect Senator Toomey last year by supporting the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF). Without your support, he wouldn’t be in a place to influence this critical debate.


Jim DeMint
United States Senator
Chairman, Senate Conservatives Fund

P.S. Senator Toomey’s leadership on this issue is an important reminder of why we must continue to elect true conservatives to the Senate.


Wild Thing's comment.....

What Toomey is proposing is that out of the tax receipts, the first budgeted payments will go to the $200B debt service, and then, after that, programs and other spending will have to be cut. The way it is now, the spending side is holding the debt holder in front of them to protect them from the firing squad.

It will be the Day of Reckoning and we need to do it so that we can put a balance back in to the system.

MSNBC Fires Olbermann ~ Announced Departure and Finale Show Last Night~Good Riddance

via press release:


MSNBC and Keith Olbermann have ended their contract. The last broadcast of “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” will be this evening. MSNBC thanks Keith for his integral role in MSNBC’s success and we wish him well in his future endeavors.

Sources tell Mediaite Keith Olbermann and MSNBC were headed for a breakup long before Comcast’s rise to power, but clearly something set the divorce into motion quickly today, with network promos set to run touting Olbermann’s role in MSNBC’s coverage of next week’s State of the Union address–and, notably, a Keith Olbermann promo running on MSNBC in the hour after the host signed off and left the network…

While Olbermann and his iconic Countdown have been immensely important in the resurgence of MSNBC, Olbermann’s friction with management has been a sticking point. At many points–including the recent suspension over political contributions–tensions rose so high as to lead to serious discussions inside MSNBC about firing their star.

…With Maddow enjoying both immense popularity inside MSNBC and very strong ratings for herRachel Maddow Show, Olbermann’s invincibility as the heart and soul of MSNBC’s brand became softer.In recent weeks, sources tell Mediaite there have been meetings on the topic of Keith Olbermann and his future at the network. Did Comcast–as many Countdown viewers seem to suspect–order Olbermann out? It appears that the end of the Olbermann era at MSNBC was not “ordered” by Comcast, nor was it a move to tone down the network’s politics. Instead, sources inside the network say it came down to the more mundane world of office politics–Olbermann was a difficult employee, who clashed with bosses, colleagues and underlings alike, and with the Comcast-related departure of Jeff Zucker, and the rise of Maddow and O’Donnell, the landscape shifted, making an Olbermann exit suddenly seem well-timed.

Olbermann had signed a new four-year contract with MSNBC two years ago. It's unclear what his plans are now.

Wild Thing's comment......

I have never watched his show, I have only seen the YouTube videos when I posted about him a few times.
There is no way I could take watching a show like his.

He won't be missed.

We will see what road he network will take since Comcast has bought MSNBC.

Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) Delivers Weekly GOP Address On Repealing Obamacare 1/22/11

Sen. John Barrasso, a doctor from Wyoming, discusses the Republican promise to repeal and replace President Obama's misguided, unpopular health care law.


"As a doctor, I have taken care of families for over a quarter of a century. I know that this law is bad for patients, it's bad for providers, the nurses and the doctors who care for those patients and it's bad for taxpayers.... Your health care decisions should be decided in your doctor's office, not a Washington office. Nothing should come between you and your doctor.... Republicans will fight to repeal this job-destroying law and replace it with patient centered reforms."

He points out, "Earlier this week, the newly elected House of Representatives immediately kept its promise to you, the American people. It did so by voting to repeal the President's health care spending law."

"Now it's the Senate's turn, The President's party has wasted millions of your taxpayer dollars trying to persuade you to support this law. Well, in spite of the mailings and the misleading television ads, they have failed. A recent poll showed that a majority of Americans still want this law repealed"


Wild Thing's comment........

Keep the pressure on, the left is a hard wall to break through. I believe it can happen, but they can't give an inch to the left. No way.

Monument of George Washington Concealed at Annual MLK Day Rally

FOX Nation

The monument of George Washington was concealed from the crowd during the annual King Day at the Dome rally.

The NAACP says no insult to Washington was intended - the three-sided structure that covered the front and sides of the statue was intended to display a rally graphic.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Sickening and there is NO excuse for this to be done....NONE!

Perhaps if the history of the making of this country and the founding fathers was taught in school,the true story,not the Progressives' version,people might not so casually cover up their statues,like the progressives have tried to cover up these amazing men and the genius of the Constitution they gave to us.

Sharia Law Gains Foothold in US—Federal Judge Upholds Government Funding of Islam

Attorneys for a Marine Corps veteran of the Iraq War say they have filed a petition to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after a federal district judge ruled it is OK for the U.S. government to fund commercial enterprises that promote the indoctrination of Islamic law, or Shariah, in the United States.


Sharia Law Gains Foothold in US—Federal Judge Upholds Government Funding of Islam

Thomas Moore Law Center

Last week, Judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff, a federal district court judge in Michigan, dismissed a constitutional challenge to the U.S. Government’s bailout of AIG, which used over a hundred million dollars in federal tax money to support Islamic religious indoctrination through the funding and promotion of Sharia-compliant financing (SCF). SCF is financing that follows the dictates of Islamic law.

The challenge was brought by the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and co-counsel David Yerushalmi, on behalf of Kevin Murray, a Marine Corps veteran of the Iraqi War.

TMLC filed a notice of appeal immediately after the ruling and will be seeking review of the decision in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of TMLC, commented: “Judge Zatkoff’s ruling allows for oil–rich Muslim countries to plant the flag of Islam on American soil. His ruling ignored the uncontested opinions of several Sharia experts and AIG’s own website, which trumpeted Sharia-compliant financing as promoting the law of the Prophet Mohammed and as an ‘ethical product,’ and a ‘new way of life.’ His ruling ignored AIG’s use of a foreign Islamic advisory board to control investing in accordance with Islamic law.”

Continued Thompson: “This astonishing decision allows the federal government as well as AIG and other Wall Street bankers to explicitly promote Sharia law ─ the 1200 year old body of Islamic canon law based on the Koran, which demands the destruction of Western Civilization and the United States. This is the same law championed by Osama bin Laden and the Taliban; it is the same law that prompted the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks; and it is the same law that is responsible for the murder of thousands of Christians throughout the world. The Law Center will do everything it can to stop Sharia law from rearing its ugly head in America.”

The federal lawsuit was filed in 2008 against Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

It challenges that portion of the “Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008” (EESA) that appropriated $70 billion in taxpayer money to fund and financially support the federal government’s majority ownership interest in AIG, which is considered the market leader in SCF. According to the lawsuit,.....

“The use of these taxpayer funds to approve, promote, endorse, support, and fund these Sharia-based Islamic religious activities violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”

Robert Muise, Senior Trial Counsel for TMLC, commented: “Based on the incredible amount of evidence presented, much of which DOJ could not refute , and in light of the strength of the court’s prior ruling, we expected the court to ultimately rule in our favor and hold that the federal government violated the U.S. Constitution by using federal tax money to fund Islamic religious activities. As soon as we read the court’s adverse opinion, we filed an immediate appeal.”

Muise concluded, “Apparently, the court does not believe that the federal government violates the U.S. Constitution when it provides $153 million in taxpayer money to support Islamic religious activities. This is certainly more than the ‘one pence’ James Madison warned about when he helped craft the First Amendment, and I am sure this decision is news for all of the Christian and Jewish organizations and businesses that are prevented from receiving a dime of federal tax money to support their religious activities.”

The appeal is expected to take at least a year to complete.

Wild Thing's comment........

This is a threat to our sovereignty, to our country in every way.

These people think that they are above the law and as such think that they can do anything they want and that no one will stop them.

The wars our Heroes have served and fought in, and where many gave their lives, was to fight this kind of thing from happening.

DNC Announces New Executive Director Associated with ACORN

DNC announces new executive director associated with ACORN

Daily Caller

In a letter Thursday, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine announced that he had selected Patrick Gaspard to serve as the political party’s new executive director.

The selection is certain to draw criticism from conservatives because of Gaspard’s past association with activist organization ACORN.

Gaspard’s role in the Obama machine has been a target of conservative criticism .

Gaspard donated thousands of dollars to ACORN, The American Spectator has reported, and worked for New York’s Working Families Party and labor union SEIU.

Kaine wrote in the letter, “He understands the importance of grassroots politics and team building… Working together, I am confident that we can protect the progress of the past two years, achieve important electoral victories in 2011 and 2012.”

Gaspard is currently working as the Obama administration’s director of the Office of Political Affairs.

More Than 120 Busted in Northeast Mafia Crackdown

More than 120 busted in Northeast mafia crackdown

More than 120 organized crime associates face charges including murder, extortion and narcotics trafficking in one of the largest Mafia crackdowns in FBI history, prosecutors announced Thursday.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said at a news conference Thursday in New York City that the 127 defendants include high-ranking members of the Gambino and Colombo crime families and the reputed former boss of organized crime in New England. All five of New York's five major crime families were targeted.

The charges cover decades worth of offenses, he said, including "classic mob hits to eliminate perceived rivals," a killing during a botched robbery and a double shooting in a barroom dispute over a spilled drink.

More than 100 of the defendants were arrested Thursday as some 800 federal agents and police officers made busts in several states. One person was arrested in Italy.

Other charges include alleged corruption among dockworkers who were forced to kick back a portion of their holiday bonuses to the crime families.

Holder called the arrests "an important step forward in our nation's fight against organized crime."

The crimes include two murders dating back 30 years, and another as recently as 2002. One of the defendants, among the scores arrested, is a former New York City police officer.

Authorities say the investigation was aided by informants who recorded thousands of conversations by suspected mobsters.

Luigi Manocchio, the reputed former head of New England's Patriarca crime family, was arrested Wednesday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the U.S. attorney's office in Providence said. An indictment accused him of collecting protection payments from strip club-owners. Also arrested was Thomas Iafrate, who worked as a bookkeeper for strip clubs and set aside money for Manocchio, prosecutors said.

The takedown was the result of multiple investigations. Federal probes aided by mob turncoats have decimated the families' ranks in recent years and have resulted in lengthy prison terms for several leaders.

On Friday, a federal judge in Brooklyn sentenced John "Sonny" Franzese, 93, to eight years in prison for extorting Manhattan strip clubs and a pizzeria on Long Island.

In October, Mafia turncoat Salvatore Vitale was sentenced to time served after federal prosecutors praised his total betrayal of his own crime syndicate — and after he apologized to the families of his victims. Authorities said he had a hand in at least 11 murders, including that of a fellow gangster in the fallout from the infamous Donnie Brasco case.

The evidence provided after his arrest in 2003 helped decimate the once-fearsome Bonanno organized crime family, Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Andres said.

Wild Thing's comment........

hmmmm Mafia takedown, but I guess they did not go after any in Chicago. In Chicago they call them Rahm Emanuel’s campaign staff.

House Votes to Repeal Health-Care Law (vote was 245-189)

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN):

Obamacare as we know is the crown jewel of socialism. It is socialized medicine. The American people spoke soundly and clearly at the ballot box in November. And, they said to us Mr. Speaker that in no uncertain terms, “Repeal this bill!” So today this body will cast a vote to repeal Obamacare. And, to those across the United States who think this may be a symbolic act, we have a message for them. This is not symbolic.

This is why we were sent here and we will not stop until we repeal a president and put a president in the position of the White House who will repeal this bill. Until we repeal the current senate. Put in a senate who will listen to the American people and repeal this bill. Because what has been the result Mr. Speaker? It’s been this. It’s been job loss. It’s been increases on costs to the American people… This will break the bank and we won’t let that happen to our country. So make no mistake Mr. Speaker. We are here to stay and our resolve is firm. We will continue this fight until Obamacare is no longer the law of the land and until we can pass a bill that will actually cut the cost of health care.”

House Votes to Repeal Health-Care Law (vote was 245-189)

The Wall Street Journal

The Republican-led House voted Wednesday to repeal the sweeping health overhaul, making good on a GOP election promise .

The vote was 245-189 in favor of repeal, with three Democrats joining all Republicans in the majority.

The three Democrats who voted for repeal were Reps. Dan Boren of Oklahoma, Mike McIntyre of North Carolina and Mike Ross of Arkansas.

Republicans also plan to choke off funding to implement the law, since their control of the House gives them new leverage to control annual appropriations spending.


Rep. Mike Pence: Republicans Want to Repeal Healthcare 'Lock, Stock and Barrel'

The Hill

House Republicans will vote to repeal the healthcare law "lock, stock and barrel," Rep. Mike Pence said Wednesday.

The remarks by the Indiana Republican, who is thought to be mulling a White House run, shows not all lawmakers shying away from colorful rhetoric in the wake of the Arizona shootings earlier this month. Pence is also a conservative favorite, and the remarks could be seen as a play for the base.

Pence made the comments as the House moved toward a vote Wednesday to repeal the healthcare law.

“Today House Republicans are going to stand with the American people and vote to repeal their government takeover of health care lock, stock and barrel,” said Pence in a one-minute speech on the House floor.

In an interview with The Hill, Pence said he continues to use the phrase because he believes clear communication and consistency are important.

"I think it’s important that we speak plainly, that we speak confidently, and that we speak respectfully," said Pence.

Good job Boehner and all that worked so hard on this to make it happen! A promise kept, and its a good sign.

Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee Uses Wrong Photo To Make Her Point About Obamacare

From Cavuto, a chat with Sheila Jackson Lee on location at the Capitol. It doesn’t look like the Capitol, but that’s because she has an aide slightly out of view holding up a poster-sized photo of a bedridden elderly woman behind her. Yes, really — they didn’t even set it up on a stand. You can actually see the staffer’s hand enter the left side of the frame at times.

Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee on Cavuto has a staffer behind her during the interview holding a photo of a woman hospitalized but was treated under Medicare, Lee is using the photo to make her case against repealing Obamacare, Cavuto hammers her on it big time...

LOL it's hilarious with the background shaking behind her.

PC Gone Wild As CNN's John King Apologizes For Guest Using Word "Crosshairs"

CNN's John King is attracting a lot of notice -- and some ridicule -- in the blogosphere for his on-air apology after a guest used the word "crosshairs" during a report on Chicago politics Tuesday. (The guest, a former Chicago reporter, referred to two rivals of mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel, saying Emanuel is "in both of their crosshairs.") "We were just having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race," King told viewers. "My friend Andy Shaw…used the term 'in the crosshairs' in talking about the candidates out there. We're trying, we're trying to get away from that language. Andy is a good friend, he's covered politics for a long time, but we're trying to get away from using that kind of language. We won't always be perfect, so hold us accountable when we don't meet your standards."

Wild Thing's comment........

Hahahahaha Good grief! Good thing CNN canceled “CROSSFIRE” or there would be WAY too much hypocrisy goin’ on.

It's a METAPHOR! They are harmless, and used everywhere every day. Some corporations have a WAR ROOM where they go to discuss important strategies. Football teams DO BATTLE on the gridiron. The left continues to attempt to exercise complete control over the language, so that they can exercise complete control over our lives.

Two Bit Politican Hiding Behind a Badge Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik

Washington Post

Dupnik acknowledged in a sit-down interview with Washington Post reporters Sari Horwitz and David Nakamura this week. He said talk show host Rush Limbaugh encouraged listeners to email the sheriff's office and "tell them what you think" and the department's computers nearly crashed after angry emails began flooding in.

As the Post's Peter Wallsten wrote last week Dupnik, 75, who has been the sheriff for three decades, is no stranger to controversy. He loudly opposed Arizona's strict new immigration laws, calling them "racist."

Wild Thing's comment......

LOL too funny. This Sheriff has real problems. He is using his office, his job as a political soap box. I never saw a Sheriff do that before.

I personally hope that there is an investigation on his entire department over him. His bias is very telling. I think there is a great chance there has been an obstruction of justice in the past, and it is the reason why this shooter was not investigated when he made his past threats.

Disgusting DEMOCRAT Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) Says GOP Like Goebbels, Nazis in Health Care Debate

“They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels. You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing, blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing,” Cohen said. “The Germans said enough about the Jews and people believed it – -believed it and you have the Holocaust. We heard on this floor, government takeover of health care. Politifact said the biggest lie of 2010 was a government takeover of health care because there is no government takeover.”

Rep. Steve Cohen stands by ‘Nazi’ comments

Daily Caller

Tennessee Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen stood by comments he made on the House floor late Tuesday night in which he used a Nazi comparison to discuss Republicans who call the health care law a “government takeover,” but insisted he was making a point about lying, not trying to insinuate that Republicans were Nazis.

“It wasn’t about Nazis, it was about lies,” Cohen told The Daily Caller Wednesday. “The biggest liar, the biggest political liar was Goebbels. Politifact called this the biggest lie of the year. If you don’t stand up and say lies are lies, they stand for the truth. Somebody has to come out and say they’re lies. Politifact did and I cited Politifact. I have no problem with that.”


Wild Thing's comment........

You want a nazi comparison?

Try the way the democrats passed Obamacare. THAT was classic nazi tactics right there.

Donald Trump On Chinese President Hu Jintao Visit: Obama Will Drop to His Knees & Kiss His Hand

Note the communist flag = DISGUSTING!

Hu landed at Andrews Air Force base and was expected soon afterwards at the White House for a rare private dinner hosted by President Barack Obama in recognition of the key nature of a relationship under severe recent strain.

The full pomp of the state visit comes Wednesday, when Hu will be greeted by full military honors before Oval Office talks and a lavish state dinner -- only the third of Obama's two-year presidency.


A Secret Service agent guards his post on the roof of the White House as a lamp post is adorned with Chinese and US national flags in Washington, DC, on January 17. China's President Hu Jintao arrived in the United States Tuesday for a state visit promising frank talk over economics and currency disputes, but likely to expose a wide gulf over human rights.

Members of the US Air Force roll out the red carpet upon the arrival of Chinese President Hu Jintao at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland


During a phone interview with Your World host Neil Cavuto, the potential 2012 U.S. Presidential candidate had this to say about American-Chinese relations as Cavuto simultaneously covered live President Hu’s arrival at St. Andrew’s Air Force Base. When Cavuto noted, “Alright, they’re rolling out the red carpet [for President Hu],” Trump laughed, “”So, I don’t have a television in front of me: You’ll let me know whether our President drops to his knees, right?”*

Wild Thing's comment........

Trump was on longer then the video shares, but you can get the idea of what Trump was saying. I heard it when it happened and I almost stood up and cheered to hear someone speak the truth about China and our country and what should be done.

The last time the Chinese were in the White House it was with the Clintons.

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan Tears Down the ObamaCare "Fiscal House of Cards"

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan making the opening argument on the House Floor in favor of a bill that would repeal ObamaCare. Ryan argued that ObamaCare will decrease the quality and availability of care to Americans, and will be disastrous for the financial future of the country. He called for repeal of ObamaCare, and replacing it with market-based reforms that will preserve what works, and fix what does not in the U.S. Health Care System.

“Let me just simply say why we are here. We are here because we heard the American People in the last election. We are here because we believe it is really important to do in office what you said you would do. We said we would have a straight up or down vote to repeal this Health Care Law, and that’s precisely what we are doing here today.”


GOP Rep. Paul Ryan on the House Floor yesterday where he spoke during debate on the bill to repeal ObamaCare. Ryan took time to destroy Democrat arguments that repeal of ObamaCare would increase America’s debt. Ryan called ObamaCare a “fiscal house of cards,” and then proceeded to expose the “smoke and mirrors” used by Democrats to put forward the fantasy that ObamaCare will help America be fiscally solvent.

Obama and His Administration Warn,Threaten If Their Socialized Medicine Is Stopped

In a move to counter the House Republicans’ planned vote to repeal Barack Obama’s health care law this week, the White House on Tuesday released data showing that half of all Americans under the age of 65 have pre-existing conditions and could be denied coverage if reform is weakened.

Obama Administration Warns, ‘129 Million Americans With a Pre-Existing Condition Could Be Denied Coverage Without New Health Reform Law’


The HHS analysis found that “anywhere from 50 to 129 million (19 to 50 percent) of Americans under age 65 have some type of pre-existing condition. “Examples of what may be considered a pre-existing condition” (emphasis added) include heart disease, cancer, asthma, high blood pressure, and arthritis, HHS said.

According to HHS, older Americans ages 55-64 are at particular risk because 48 to 86 percent of them live with a pre-existing condition.

The news release also noted that up to 30 percent of people under age 65 who are in good health today “are likely to develop a pre-existing condition over the next eight years.”

HHS explained how insurance companies in many states – before the new health care law took effect – “could deny coverage, charge higher premiums, and/or limit benefits based on pre-existing conditions.” It then explains the “number of protections” that already are in place because of the Democrats’ law.

The news release also touts the new Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan, “which provides private insurance to those locked out of the insurance market because of a pre-existing condition.” The program “has already saved people’s lives,” HHS says, by covering services such as chemotherapy.

In a 21-page “Pledge to America” unveiled in September, Republicans offered a plan to “repeal and replace the government takeover of health care with common-sense solutions" that lower costs and save jobs.

“Health care should be accessible for all, regardless of pre-existing conditions or past illnesses,” says the Republican pledge. “We will expand state high-risk pools, reinsurance programs and reduce the cost of coverage. We will make it illegal for an insurance company to deny coverage to someone with prior coverage on the basis of a pre-existing condition.”

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) told in November that he does not back the government mandate forcing insurance companies to cover individuals with pre-existing conditions.

He said the states can set up high-risk pools for people with pre-existing conditions.

Costs will skyrocket, DeMint warned, if the federal government forces insurers to cover people who already are sick – because many people will wait until they’re sick to buy insurance.

Insurers Dismiss Administration Claims on Pre-Existing Conditions Barrier (Obama and Sebelius = LIARS ! )

FOX News

House Republicans and members of the health insurance industry are dismissing as a gross overstatement an Obama administration study -- released as debate gets underway to repeal the health care law -- that says as many as half of all Americans under 65 have a pre-existing condition that could threaten their access to health insurance.

The Department of Health and Human Services study, released Tuesday, concludes that somewhere between 50 million and 129 million non-elderly Americans have a pre-existing condition -- the kind of condition insurance companies can use to deny coverage. The study further found that 15-30 percent of people in good health are likely to develop such a condition within eight years.

"We as a nation can't afford to repeal the health care law," HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said on a conference call Tuesday.

But an America's Health Insurance Plans spokesman said the HHS study creates a disconnect between conditions and coverage.

"It's exaggerating the number of people who are actually impacted by pre-existing conditions,"said AHIP spokesman Robert Zirkelbach. "Most people who are applying are getting policies."

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, said the suggestion that so many millions would be hurt by the repeal is both wrong and "offensive."

House Speaker John Boehner describes the repeal as an economic imperative.

Some Democrats have indicated a willingness to compromise and rework a few controversial provisions. That may be where the debate leads. Though the House may have the votes to pass the repeal bill, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has vowed to block it in his chamber.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., dared Reid to bring up the bill.

"If Harry Reid is so confident that the repeal vote should die in the Senate then he should bring it up for a vote if he's so confident he's got the votes," House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican, told reporters, laying down a challenge to Mr. Reid, the Nevada Democrat who controls the Senate schedule.

Wild Thing's comment.........

The truth simply is not in these people. Let the scare tactics begin.... 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.........

As Rush stated yesterday, “life is a preexisting condition.”

As I see it Obamacare denies the right to quality of life, Liberty, and the persuit of happiness to all no matter its intent. Road to Hell is paved with such intent.

Get the Federal government the hell out of our lives for other than the Founders original design, and purpose.

I got a pre-existing condition, I’m allergic to obama's BS! And I'm allergic to communists taking my money and giving it to people who hate me.

‎200 economists write in a letter yesterday that ObamaCare needs to be repealed “to promote job growth and help to restore the federal government to fiscal balance.” They note the job-destroying law’s $770 billion tax hikes & $1.5 trillion worth of government spending as key reasons to support the GOP’s move this week to repeal the unconstitutional law.

You can read the letter here and the list of names.

Obamas Reap Windfall in Diplomatic Gifts

Obamas reap windfall in diplomatic gifts

The Washington Post

Foreign leaders showered President Barack Obama and his family with hundreds of thousands of dollars in art, jewelry, rare books and other presents during their first year in the White House.

Saudi Arabia’s king was the most generous gift-giver, according to documents released by the State Department on Tuesday. Saudi King Abdullah gave Obama, his wife and daughters nearly $190,000 in luxury baubles in 2009, including the single most valuable gift reported to have been given to U.S. officials that year: a ruby and diamond jewelry set, including earrings, a ring, a bracelet and necklace, for the first lady worth $132,000.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was a distant runner up to King Abdullah, with gifts for the first family worth a little under $33,000. The Italian haul included silk ties, a gold watch, a crystal table and candlesticks. Berlusconi also gave nearly $2,000 worth of ties and scarves to members of Congress in 2009, including the speaker of the House at the time, Nancy Pelosi.

In addition to the ruby and diamond jewelry, the Saudi monarch presented Michelle Obama with a $14,200 pearl necklace. He gave the president a marble clock adorned with miniature gold palm trees and camels valued at $34,500. He sent first daughters Sasha and Malia Obama diamond earrings and necklaces worth more than $7,000.

Senior White House officials were also recipients of King Abdullah’s largesse, with top aides like national security adviser James Jones, David Axelrod, Rahm Emmanuel, Valerie Jarrett and spokesman Robert Gibbs receiving watches, cufflinks, pens, earrings and bracelets valued at between $5,000 and $9,000.

Wild Thing's comment........

Article I, Sec. 9:No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.

So unless the rules have changed, all this is supposed to be turned over to the country. I don’t know whether immediately, or when they leave the White House.

We’ll see if Michelle and B. Hussein Obama will act like Hilary and try to make off with them... or the silverware... when their reign... I mean term... is over.

This Call For Civility Is Just Censorship From Obama And The Left ~ Rush Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh today saying that the Left’s new obsession with “civility” is actually their way of trying to enforce censorship on those who oppose their agenda.

“What’s really going on now, the liberals are demanding that we abandon our principles — and our arguments for our principles. We give up our principles and we stop arguing for them. This isn’t about civility or any of the rest of it. They are saying that accusing the President of trampling on our liberties – accusing him of trying to transform this society, to strengthen the government and weaken the individual – accusing him of trying to destroy the financial health of the nation – that’s all hate language. No it’s not! There’s nothing hateful about it. Particularly since it has the added benefit of being true! And that’s why they’re trying to shut it up. Stuff that they don’t care about, they ignore. Now they are trying to characterize accurate depictions of Obama and his agenda and his intent as hate language.”


(Radio Equalizer)- Syndicated/ XM-Sirius Satellite-based Mike Malloy, no stranger toRadio Equalizer readers, spent part of last night’s show defending his violence fantasies and even revealed a new one: a desire to choke Rush Limbaugh to death.

MIKE MALLOY: The rhetoric that comes from me is the rhetoric of rage…and, um, have their been violent images? Of course. Rush Limbaugh choking on his throat fat – that you know, to me, is not a threat – I can’t - I wish I could, but I can’t reach into his throat and jiggle up his throat fat so he suffocates – I can’t do it.

Um, as far as Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney is a mass killer – I mean, by definition – it – it doesn’t make a difference what he thinks he is or think he isn’t – his policies going back to the ’60s are those of a mass killer.


Wild Thing's comment........

I think Rush hit the nail on the head. The left is never “civil” about anything. I am glad he also brought up how the left treated Reagan, it shows it has been like this from the left for a very long time.

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie Can't Find Obama Birth Certificate

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie Can't Find Obama Birth Certificate

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie suggested in an interview published yesterday that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Barack Obama may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health.

Abercrombie the Honolulu Star Advertiser he was searching within the Hawaii Department of Health to find definitive vital records that would prove Obama was born in Hawaii, because the continuing eligibility controversy could hurt the president's chances of re-election in 2012.

Donalyn Dela Cruz, Abercrombie's spokeswoman in Honolulu, ignored again yesterday another in a series of repeated requests made by WND for an interview with the governor.

Toward the end of the interview, the newspaper asked Abercrombie: "You stirred up quite a controversy with your comments regarding birthers and your plan to release more information regarding President Barack Obama's birth certificate. How is that coming?"

In his response, Abercrombie acknowledged the birth certificate issue will have "political implications" for the next presidential election "that we simply cannot have."

Wild Thing's comment.......

Well. Isn't that special. Is anybody surprised? LOL I think not.

They should also pull his Occidental and Columbia College applications. Although it wouldn't provide proof - I'd still be interested to see what place of birth he wrote on his application. Interesting that all of the One’s documents have been impounded.

Gloves Come Off on Oversight Panel as DEMOCRAT Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) Makes Demands

Gloves come off on Oversight panel as Dem calls for no 'silly' Obama probes

The Hill

The gloves are coming off on the House committee that will be at the center of Republican attempts to investigate the Obama administration.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, took a jab at his Republican counterpart this week, calling for serious investigations rather than probes that are “silly or absurd.”

Cummings made the remark in a letter to Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Monday spelling out his goals for the committee in the new Congress. He said the panel needs to hold the government accountable while also heeding President Obama's call to elevate political discourse in the wake of the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.)

“I want to join you in conducting responsible oversight to ensure accountability in government and effective operation of our nation’s laws,” Cummings wrote. “I also agree with President Obama’s statement last week that ‘a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to the challenges of our nation.’ Together, I hope we can elevate the level of discourse not only on our Committee, but across the nation."

In the letter, Cummings also questioned Issa's use of taxpayer funds for unofficial committee activities, which was reported in a New Yorker profile released this week. The article mentions a “highly organized” effort to manage Issa’s image, which aides refer to as “Issa Enterprises.” Another effort, which aides call “Oversight Productions,” refers to a series of Youtube videos Issa links to his Twitter account and official website.

“As Ranking Member, my goals are straightforward: I want the Committee to engage in oversight that is regarded as serious rather than dismissed as silly or absurd; to establish strong predicates for investigations rather than making unsubstantiated allegations that waste taxpayer funds; to use Committee resources to inform and educate the American people rather than attacking opponents; and to conduct comprehensive, balanced investigations that seek out the truth rather than launching one-sided inquiries designed to fulfill predetermined outcomes,” Cummings wrote.

Never one to let an attack go unanswered, Issa’s office punched back Tuesday and accused Cummings of obstructionism and failing to be a “serious” oversight partner.

“Congressman Towns and Congresswoman Maloney were pushed aside in order to have the most effective obstructionist as Ranking Member,” said Issa spokesman Frederick Hill. “This letter and other statements have only underscored concerns that Ranking Member Cummings is not interested in being a serious partner on oversight.”

The letter is the latest in a series of early jabs between Issa and Cummings. When it became clear that Issa would chair the panel, Democratic leaders pushed Reps. Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.) out of the top Democratic post because he had not been aggressive countering Issa while serving as chairman for the past few years. Democrats also passed up Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) in favor of Cummings, for similar reasons — out of fear that she would not be able to effectively go toe to toe with Issa.

Ever since Republicans won back the majority, the media spotlight has fallen squarely on Issa and his plans to investigate all corners of the Obama administration.

This week, Issa announced that his first investigation on the Oversight Committee would be of a Homeland Security Department policy that requires political appointees to review many Freedom of Information Act requests.

Wild Thing's comment........

Fight back Issa!

Here is what I have to say to Democrat Cummings!!! You morons had the government wrapped around your socialist fingers blew it all. You lost, our side won. Take a hike, deadbeat Democrat!!!

Repeat after me Chairman Issa: it’s the seriousness of the charge...

Congressman Cummins & his Media pals will choke on that one.

Six More States Join Florida's Federal Lawsuit Challenging the Constitutionality of Obama's Socialized Medicine

Six states join health care reform challenge

South Florida Business Journal

Six more states are joining Florida’s federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of health care reform.

With the addition of Iowa, Ohio, Kansas, Wyoming, Wisconsin and Maine, 26 states are now challenging the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law by President Barack Obama in March.

That same month, then-Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum filed the original federal lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of Treasury and the U.S. Department of Labor.

The National Federation of Independent Business joined the legal challenge in May.

“It sends a strong message that more than half of the states consider the health care law unconstitutional and are willing to fight it in court,” said new Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, who is taking up where McCollum left off. “I look forward to continuing to defend Florida's families and businesses against this unconstitutional law and upholding the Constitution.”

The lawsuit challenges not only the law’s requirement that individuals purchase health insurance or face a penalty, but also its substantial and costly Medicaid expansion.

Sarah Palin being asked about her political future in the wake of the Tucson Mass Shooting, and all the attacks against her. Palin told Sean Hannity she has not decided whether to run for President, but she said, “I can tell you one thing: I’m not going to sit down. I’m not going to shut up.”

Gov. Sarah Palin reacting to the attacks from the Left on her for using “crosshairs” on a map last year to target Democrats for defeat, when Democrats have used “bullseyes” on maps to target Republicans. Palin said it reminded her that for those on the Left, “if it weren’t for their double-standards, they’d have no standards.”

Speaker Of The House John Boehner Says No Thanks To Invite From Obama ~ Good For John Boehner!


This week, House Speaker John Boehner raised eyebrows by turning down an offer to ride on Air Force One with President Obama and others headed to a memorial service in Tucson. Instead, he appeared at a reception for Republican operative Maria Cino. Now, on the heels of renewed calls for bipartisanship and toned-down political rhetoric, Boehner is saying “thanks, but no thanks” to another offer to appear at an event with the president – Wednesday’s White House state dinner.

The dinner, honoring the Chinese President Hu Jintao, will pull together leaders on both sides of the aisle, along with celebs, CEOs, Cabinet members, Supreme Court justices and media bigwigs.

A Boehner aide confirmed that the House speaker was invited to the dinner but will not be attending. Boehner also turned down invitations to the previous two state dinners held during Obama’s presidency, one honoring Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in November 2009, and the most recent state dinner honoring Mexican President Felipe Calderon in May 2010, the aide said.

Though Boehner was invited, other prominent Republican leaders were not. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has not yet received an invitation, an aide told POLITICO. Though the guest list is still being finalized, Cantor’s empty mailbox could certainly be seen as a slight, considering the most recent former House majority leader, Democrat Steny Hoyer, attended the most recent state dinner.

On the other side of the aisle: Rep. James Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in the House, was invited and plans to attend. Aides are still confirming whether other Democratic leaders, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Hoyer, will be in attendance.

Wild Thing's comment........

This week, House Speaker John Boehner raised eyebrows

HA! Whose eyebrows were those?

Thank you John Boehner!!!!

You know how the dems that conservatives are in charge of the house all of a sudden the dems want to be bipartisan, reach across the aisle and yada, yada. Same old song and dance routine.

Mark Levin's $100,000 Challenge to Chris Matthews

Mark Levin's $100,000 Challenge to Chris Matthews

The American Spectator

Conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin has put out a stunning challenge to those left-wing media personalities accusing conservative talk radio stars and Sarah Palin of encouraging murder.

First, he offered $100,000 to Chris Matthews to find any example where Sarah Palin or Levin himself had "promoted the murder of anybody."

The direct challenge to Matthews took place shortly after Levin had played clips of Matthews suggesting Levin's passionate radio shows were "angry" and apparently implying that Levin's shows and those of talker Michael Savage had some responsibility for the Tucson murders.

The allegation came on the heels of a specific allegation by left-wing Pima County Sheriff insisting Rush Limbaugh was at fault, while MSNBC's Keith Olbermann demanded Palin "repudiate her own part in amplifying violence and violent imagery in politics."

Said Levin, who is also a considerable lawyer in his role as head of the landmark Legal Foundation:

"I challenge Chris Matthews, I'll put $100,000 on the table, to find any example where Sarah Palin has promoted the murder of anybody," said Levin -- specifically excluding terrorists and the Taliban.

Levin went on: "A hundred thousand on the table if Chris Matthews can find anywhere Mark Levin has urged the murder of people who have different political viewpoints. That's the murder of politicians …where I said go out there and kill X,Y,Z…go out there and kill A,B,C. I challenge him right now. Sarah Palin. Me. Go ahead."

Levin, of course, is also a former Justice Department official, which gave his second challenge a crisp note: He's waiting for a very specific allegation "because I'm going to sue." In federal court.

Levin's challenge to Matthews and other left-wing media types comes on the heels of increasingly desperate attempts by the left-wing media to pin the Tucson violence by the mentally disturbed Jared Loughner on conservative talk radio stars. A friend of Loughner's has gone on television to specifically say Loughner didn't listen to "political radio" or watch television news.

"Somebody has to stand up," said an indignant Levin on his show.

HERE is the AUDIO from his show....just CLICK HERE

Rep. Mike Pence to Reintroduce Broadcaster Freedom Act

Former House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (Ind.) said today that he would soon reintroduce the Broadcaster Freedom Act, and that Congress should reject the idea of regulating political speech in the wake of the Arizona shooting over the weekend. Pence, who spoke on C-SPAN this morning, said his bill would prevent the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from regulating content on the airwaves.

In the last Congress, Pence introduced the Broadcaster Freedom Act of 2009, which would have prevented the FCC from requiring broadcasters to present opposing points of view, a concept known as the Fairness Doctrine.

Pence said he does not want free political discourse to be “another casualty” of the Arizona shootings.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Good for Pence!!!! I am glad he is doing this.

I hope it takes, because Obama's FCC has already defined Congress and the Judicial branch by laying out regulations for the internet.

2 Senators Agree To Sit Together For Obama's State of the Union Address ~ BAD IDEA!

2 Senators agree to sit together for Obama address


In a symbolic gesture toward more civil political discourse, Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer and Republican Sen. Tom Coburn said Sunday they will sit together at the upcoming State of the Union address.

Schumer says he and Coburn hope other lawmakers will follow their example and skip the partisan seating arrangements that usually come with joint sessions of Congress. Schumer says it’s a symbolic move but one he hopes will help set a more civil tone.

The State of the Union address is set for Jan. 25.

Wild Thing's comment........

Thereby validating the LIE that the Tucson shooter had anything to do with the political discourse.

And the GOP goes right along

Hmmmmm.....Are they gonna hold hands and sing Kumbaya, too?

Coburn is stupid for doing this!!! It signals a willingess to give the Dems what they want, and that the Republicans have no problem forgetting what 2010 election was about.

It is a democrat's idea to do this. Maybe so that when Obama gets to the scriped applause lines, it will look like the whole chamber is cheering.

I like the tradition of them sitting separately, and watching to see which parts of the speech get applauded by which sides?

I hope there is at least one GOP Senator that refuses to play along in this pathetic charade.

RHINO John McCain Calls Obama a 'Patriot,' Rejects Critics Who Say He's 'Unworthy' to Lead

McCain Calls Obama a 'Patriot,' Rejects Critics Who Say He's 'Unworthy' to Lead

Sen. John McCain lost a bitter campaign against Barack Obama in 2008 and has been at loggerheads with him for much of Obama's first two years in office. But the Arizona Republican this weekend called Obama a "patriot" intent on using his presidency to "advance our country's cause" and rejected accusations -- many coming from members of his own party and the tea party movement -- "that his policies and beliefs make him unworthy to lead America."

McCain made his comments in an article he wrote for The Washington Post opinion page, posted on Saturday, in which he praised Obama for giving a "terrific speech" in Tucson at a tribute for victims of the shooting rampage that took place there a week ago.

McCain said that Obama had "comforted and inspired the country" and performed an important service by encouraging "every American who participates in our political debates -- whether we are on the left or right or in the media -- to aspire to a more generous appreciation of one another and a more modest one of ourselves."

"Our political discourse should be more civil than it currently is, and we all, myself included, bear some responsibility for it not being so," McCain said.

~ snipet ~

McCain wrote that Obama had "appropriately disputed the injurious suggestion that some participants in our political debates were responsible for a depraved man's inhumanity."

But as the former GOP standard-bearer, McCain also spoke out against those who have sought to paint Obama's views as inimical to American ideals.

"I disagree with many of the president's policies, but I believe he is a patriot sincerely intent on using his time in office to advance our country's cause," McCain said. "I reject accusations that his policies and beliefs make him unworthy to lead America or opposed to its founding ideals. And I reject accusations that Americans who vigorously oppose his policies are less intelligent, compassionate or just than those who support them."

He sounds like he did on the campaign trail for president. McCain did enough damage by running against Obama in the presidential election. He needs to shut up!!

"I disagree with many of the president's policies, but I believe he is a patriot sincerely intent on using his time in office to advance our country's cause"

But he's sincerely intent on advancing the country's cause with many policies you disagree with... huh??

Obama is a patriot of which country??? Certainly NOT the United States of America!

Elected Republicans LISTEN To A True Hero and Non RHINO Rep. Allen West

Rep. Allen West: "I Ain't Toning Down My Fiery Rhetoric. And Yes, I Do Pack Heat"

One thing is for sure: Rep. Allen West brings a certain flavor to the U.S. Congress. From the Palm Beach Post (Florida), about the conservative Republican and former lieutenant colonel (who has a concealed weapons permit):

"Within hours of the shooting that killed six and critically injured Giffords, some commentators placed the massacre in the context of the nation’s heated political climate and blamed the tea party movement, Sarah Palin and other conservatives although no public evidence has suggested accused gunman Jared Lee Loughner was associated with or sympathetic to any of them. Some critics pointed to West’s own words — such as saying citizens must be 'well-informed and well-armed because this government that we have now is a tyrannical government' — as contributing to that climate."


"West has rejected such criticism and accused those making it of trying to score political points. 'One of the concerns I do have is the political opportunism that has come out of this. That’s kind of deplorable and unconscionable what some people are doing. This is not the time to start looking for grandstanding and things of that nature,' West said on his way into a West Boca Chamber of Commerce breakfast at Boca Lago Country Club. Asked if he had any regrets about his choice of words in the past, West said, 'No I don’t, because I think when you look at the president saying don’t bring a knife to a gun fight and the fact that the president talked about if the Republicans were to win in the midterms we’re going to have hand-to-hand combat.' He also said a blogger in Broward County had once said West should be skinned alive, so “I think there are some things that both sides need to be concerned about.”


"West, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, has said his references to 'bayonets' and military imagery are metaphorical — and he has no plans to stop using them. 'Now that I’ve been sworn into Congress I’m still the type of person that, if there are means by which I can inspire people, I will use historical references and metaphors, which is what I have done. But my background is, I am a tough guy and in tough times we have to use a little bit of stronger language when you start talking about the future legacy of my country,' West said."

On Being A Pistol-Packing Congressman

From Sunshine News (Florida), about the conservative Republican:

"At a West Boca Chamber of Commerce breakfast Tuesday, Congressman Allen West, an Army veteran, was asked if he was packing heat. After all, the Senate's sergeant at arms has warned all members of Congress to stay watchful and take threats seriously. According to a CBS12 story, at first West replied, 'No, I can't tell you that.' Later he said, 'No, I'm not' carrying a weapon. West said he decides whether to pack a pistol by the crowd he's around -- and the chamber folks are friendly types."

The Sun Sentinel (Florida) adds:

"West reminded reporters on Tuesday, he has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, 'and when it’s appropriate, I’ll take the necessary precautions.' 'It depends on the place you’re going to be and the environment I’m going to be in but I do have that as an option for my own personal protection. The most important thing is you coordinate with local law enforcement to make sure the people are protected,' he said."


Wild Thing's comment.........

I wish all the Republicans that have been elected would think like Allen West!!!

He is so awesome!!!!!!

Obama's Anti-Drilling Policies Costing Federal Government Billions in Lost Revenue

Anti-Drilling Policies Costing Federal Government Billions in Lost Revenue

The Heritage Foundation

Billions of dollars in potential oil revenue that could help close the federal deficit is being lost as a result of President Obama’s anti-drilling agenda.

Production in the Gulf of Mexico — which normally accounts for about 30 percent of all U.S. production — is expected to drop this year by 220,000 barrels per day, according to projections from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

With oil currently at $90 a barrel and the royalty rate at 18.75 percent, that equals $3.7 million in lost revenue each day.

If the agency projections hold over the course of the year, the federal government would lose more than $1.35 billion from Gulf royalty payments this year.

The number grows even larger when coupled with a lack of Gulf lease sales and fewer rental payments. Those three components — royalties, leases and rent — make up a sizeable amount of government revenue.

The looming shortfall is raising red flags on Capitol Hill. Sen. David Vitter, R-LA, an outspoken critic of the Obama administration’s drilling moratorium and the subsequent slowdown in permitting, first called attention to it in September.

“It’s not only about job loss along the Gulf Coast — the federal government is losing revenue as a result of the administration’s misguided moratorium,” Vitter explained.

“I’ve been attacking the moratorium from multiple angles and will continue to do so until drilling can fully resume.”

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar canceled a Gulf lease sale last October. He postponed another in the central Gulf of Mexico, originally scheduled for March, until 2012. One planned for October 2011 in the western Gulf also could be delayed until 2012. That would make 2011 the first year since 1965 that the federal government has failed to hold a lease sale in the Gulf.

The lack of lease sales ultimately means the government will collect less in rent payments by lease holders. Offshore rents currently generate more than $200 million per year.

The Gulf revenue decline comes as Obama’s oil spill commission is recommending new fees for oil companies – a scenario that could be avoided if the government removed barriers to exploration and production.

“Over the years, offshore production royalties have provided billions of dollars to the U.S. government,” said National Ocean Industries Association President Randall Luthi, former director of the Minerals Management Service, which predated BOEMRE. “Now, at a time when Congress is looking to maximize efficiency without raising taxes, there sits millions of dollars per day uncollected,” he said.

Energy experts said the administration’s policies are certain to have long-term consequences for the industry.

“You continually need new discoveries and new production coming online to replace what’s being depleted,” said Andy Radford, senior policy adviser at the American Petroleum Institute. “These wells taper off over time — the ones that are producing now — so without a continual flow of new discoveries and new production, the number will continue to decrease.”

A recent study conducted by Wood Mackenzie for the American Petroleum Institute estimated that increased access to those areas would bring $150 billion into federal coffers by 2025.

Why leave so much money uncollected, especially in a time of rising deficits?


Wild Thing's comment........

Obama and his administration are seriously trying to destroy our country.

Soros and Saudi Arabia sure made a great investment in buying themselves a dime-store Marxist.

I hate Obama for what he has done and is doing.

ABC and America-hating Leftist Christiane Amanpour Omits Showing Death Threat To Tea Party Leader & Police Arrest From Live Broadcast

ABC news scrubbed the incident and arrest from their segment.

However, FOX News and several local stations were able to get video of Fuller’s arrest.

ABC’s presentation on This Week they scrubbed this entire event from their audience with exception of a slight mention at the end of their segment. Of course, they forgot to mention that it was the local Tea Party leader who was threatened with death by a local far left activist.

Here is the transcript from “This Week” show from Sunday morning:

AMANPOUR: Congressman, the lady back there told David Muir that it’s time to have an honest debate in this community and perhaps in the country about this. Is that possible on this issue?

REP. RAUL GRIJALVA: I think we have to have this debate. This should be possible. As painful as that debate might be to some, it is essential. We have to talk about the issue of access. And that’s not undercutting the second amendment at all, but who? And then we have to talk about, I think, munitions, the magazine, the caliber. These are all fair discussions to have now. MUIR: Christiane, Trent Humphries is a Tea Party member and I’m curious, Trent, if you could stand for just a moment.

The Congresswoman supported the second amendment. She had a gun. And I’m curious when you hear this that there needs to be debate from democrats and republicans in the room where you see this heading forward?

TRENT HUMPHRIES: Well, I mean, we talk about the other things too is we talk about how come nobody could be aware this man had a medical history of — of that. But HIPAA laws would prevent that. It’s not just gun laws that are standing in the way of this happening.

There are all kinds of laws that Congress needs to look at and — and I think there is a time for this debate. But for what we saw and felt right now, I’m not sure that applause and things going on are appropriate right now until we’ve had actually, maybe had the funerals finished for the people that have –that were (sic) suffered and died.

My neighbor is one of those people. And — and I loved that man. And — and I want to see — I want to see some introspection maybe from the people before the national debate happens. You know, and those — and — and it’s very well to have those things. But something’s going to have to happen with — with everybody.

And — and I just — I mean, it’s — it’s something that where as a country, we talk about political discourse and what’s appropriate and what’s not. I think that — that applies to everybody including the media who’s — who’s — you know, and not in this — this — this has been a very, very cathartic thing for everybody.

Immediately after the shooting to see people jump to political angles. I just don’t want to see that right now and I’m a very political person. So I — I would ask that maybe we — we have that discussion and it’s a larger discussion and that — and that we have that just a little bit later.

AMANPOUR: Up next, a time for healing. How Tucson and the country can learn from the tragedy, as our American conversation continues…

Then ABC finishes up the segment with this mention of the death threat: with NO film of it!

AMANPOUR: As our town hall concluded, one of the victims of the shooting, who was in our audience because agitated and was detained by security. James Eric Fuller, who was shot twice last Saturday, took offices at what another audience member had said and mumbled what seemed to be a threat. He was charged with a misdemeanor and involuntarily committed according to the Pima County Sheriff’s office.

To share your thoughts and comments on what you’ve seen this morning, join us at the This Week page on Facebook where we will keep this conversation going.

Granted I have not liked her from day one. I gave her a chance ONE time to see what she had to say and if she was a typical MSM liar or not. She turned out to be exactly what I thought she would be. She’s nothing but an Islamist bomb thrower. The bombs are words and poisoned, slanted narrative, but are bombs nonetheless. She is a global terrorist. Hello, network execs, the American people are up to here with muzzie apologists. Get a clue.

She has consistently spread disinformation about America’s efforts in the war against terror.

Some reporters see their job as being objective observers of fact. Ammanpour and so many others see it as being propaganda the later one is what she is about.

Laura Ingraham does a great imitation of her.

Tucson Tea Party Leader Threatened At ABC Taping, Democrat Eric Fuller In Audience Screams: ‘Trent Humphries You’re Dead!’

At the end of the town hall meeting Saturday morning, one of the shooting victims, J. Eric Fuller, took exception to comments by two of the speakers: Ariz. state Rep. Terri Proud, a Dist. 26 Republican, and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.

According to sheriff’s deputies at the scene, Fuller took a photo of Humphries and said, “You’re Dead.” He also claimed Beck, Palin, etc caused shooting .

Sarah Palin, House Speaker John Boehner, Fox TV host Glenn Beck and former Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle for the tragedy.

“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller said in an interview with Democracy NOW.

“I would put Sarah Palin in first place there. I think, really, she should be incarcerated for treason for advocating assassinating public officials,” Fuller said in an interview with Media Matters. “



ABC News held a town hall event yesterday in Tucson, Arizona. Local officials, friends and heroes were at the event. News anchor Christiane Amanpour was the host. ABC gathered members from the Tucson community to discuss the tragic shooting last Saturday that wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and left 6 people dead.

State Representative Terri Proud was at the event sitting between Trent and the violent audience member. Terri was there to speak about the local gun laws. She described the scene:

Trent Humphries, the Pima County tea party leader, stood up to speak during the event. He was being very respectful. Trent told the audience that before we start placing blame on individuals we need to get all the facts. Trent then told everyone that one of those killed during the shooting was his neighbor and that he was affected like everyone else by the tragedy… While Trent was speaking- And it was planned that he would speak- One member in the audience and reportedly one of the victims of the tragedy started screaming, “Trent Humphries you’re dead!” The police immediately escorted him out. On his way out he screamed, “You’re all whores.”

Trent was finished with his statement and sat down. Terri said she was concerned since she was sitting right between Trent and this violent leftist. Trent sat down and ABC continued with the taping. Two police officers jumped in immediately to remove the violent leftist.

Trent Humphries has been receiving death threats all week since the national media and their leftist cohorts began blaming the tea party for the shooting by the leftwing pothead. Currently, government officials are checking his mail for him due to the threats.

The unhinged leftist J. Eric Fuller was arrested for threatening to kill a tea party leader live on national TV and was charged with with threats and intimidation.


Tucson Victim "Outraged" Giffords Was Shot

Eric Fuller was shot in Tucson Ariz. Saturday during the rampage Jared Loughner is accused of carrying out.

Fuller, 63, a military veteran, former limo driver and avid tennis player, is a strong supporter of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

He cut a tennis game short Saturday so he could hear her speak, only to be shot in the leg and hit in the back with bullet fragments. He drove himself to the hospital and was released Monday.

On "The Early Show" Tuesday, Fuller said he's "doing fine, physically. Miraculously, feeling very lucky. I'm outraged that someone like Gabrielle Giffords was attacked."


ABC isn’t reporting this “event” that occurred in THEIR OWN STUDIOS!!!???

ABC World News Reports Threat at its Tucson Town Hall Meeting, Omits That The Threat Was Made To a Tea Party Member

A survivor of last week's Tucson shootings issued a death threat to a Tea Party member Saturday in the middle of a taping for a town hall meeting to be aired on ABC's "This Week."

For some reason, ABC World News Saturday in its report about the gathering chose to omit the seriousness of the threat and that it was made to a Tea Partier. ABC's David Muir says "he mumbled what seems to be a threat"


Wild Thing's comment........

This is all very concerning!!!! Sheriff Dupnik is also responsible for this mess and Obama too with his "get ikn their face" and other threats he has made. .

Evidently this Fuller guy also tried to visit with the shooters’ parents:

Fuller told 12 News that he was there "to forgive them and possibly their son," but the couple wasn't home. The younger Loughner remains in jail and has been denied bail.

Control Freak Dictator Obama Eyeing Internet ID for Americans

Big brother might be just around the corner. Secretary of Commerce Gary Loche announced on January 7 plans for a National ID Card for the internet.

Their plan is straightforward. Instead of logging onto Facebook or one's bank using separate passwords established with each individual company or website, the White House will take the lead in developing what it calls an "identity ecosystem" that will centralize personal information and credentials. This government-approved system would issue a smart card or similar device that would confirm an individual's identity when making online credit-card purchases, accessing electronic health care records, posting "anonymous" blog entries or even logging onto one's own home computer, according to administration documents.
Officials insist this would be a voluntary program and deliver significant benefits to the public.


Obama Planning To Give Commerce Department Authority To Create Internet ID for Americans

Obama is planning to hand the U.S. Commerce Department authority over a forthcoming cybersecurity effort to create an Internet ID for Americans, a White House official said here today.

It’s “the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government” to centralize efforts toward creating an “identity ecosystem” for the Internet, White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt said.

That news, first reported by CNET, effectively pushes the department to the forefront of the issue, beating out other potential candidates including the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. The move also is likely to please privacy and civil liberties groups that have raised concerns in the past over the dual roles of police and intelligence agencies.

The announcement came at an event today at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, where U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke and Schmidt spoke.

The Obama administration is currently drafting what it’s calling the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, which Locke said will be released by the president in the next few months. (An early version was publicly released last summer.)

“We are not talking about a national ID card,” Locke said at the Stanford event. “We are not talking about a government-controlled system. What we are talking about is enhancing online security and privacy and reducing and perhaps even eliminating the need to memorize a dozen passwords, through creation and use of more trusted digital identities.”

The Commerce Department will be setting up a national program office to work on this project, Locke said.


Obama & Soros Want To Know Who YOU Are!

Barack Hussein Obama Regime is going to create a system whereby they can identify any Internet user, in the physical world, without having to trace anything more complex than that user's entry in the Internet ID database. Now bear in mind that you have a code with identifies you attached to everything you do now, so ... if any federal agency really wanted to connect you with your Internet activity they could. It's just that some people out there have found a way to mask this code and make it appear as if it were someone else.

So ... what's really behind this? A method of catching the criminals who are daily scamming us, or predators who stalk our children? A way to tell if something is connected to a people Obama says we are not at war with?

Sounds like an existential threat to anybody who has dared to exercise their 2nd Amendment Rights, or to criticize the Obama Regime, especially when one assumes they have the capability to cross-reference gun registration and Internet email/profile databases, also including medical and service records, auto registration, your address, and who you frequently associate with.

What on earth could they possibly want this for? What use could they put this to that the left wouldn't have been braying about had Bush attempted the same thing? And why should Americans be subject to such a ridiculous, unprecedented infringement by the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT on their right to privacy? Even King George never snooped on the American colonists like Obama, Soros, & Co. are doing to us ALREADY! This ridiculous extension of their UN Constitutional capabilities, once live and in use, is a change of the status quo. It's time to get Congress to de-fund and criminalize any such thing!

This will cause a serious chilling effect upon free speech all across America. No good can come of this that is worth the destruction of personal liberties which will inevitably happen. This should be opposed by anybody who opposes big government. Hopefully enough Americans out there prefer their privacy to speak out about this. Let's hope Congress has the courage to stand up to the Obama Regime on this; if they don't, we're in an even worse situation. As it is, it's time to again Call your Representative & Senators, and to TURN TO GOD AND BE SAVED! because the next thing will be to ask you to have an RFID chip planted beneath your skin on your right hand or forehead.

Wild Thing's comment........

We’re still trying to ID Obama!!!

So they will keep track of who buys what as well as who says what?!?!? Don’t suppose anyone cares to ask if this is constitutional?!?!?! Bloggers, forums, news sites too.

Might as well call it your permit for “free speech.”

Obama has unmitigated gall.

It’s truly ugly to see one’s government becoming a force in one’s life and suddenly feeling it as a threat. Or perhaps realizing that it regards us as threats. For what? Ridiculing Obama? Telling the truth about his agenda.

More government surveillance. Obama’s Orwellian agenda.

"Officials insist this would be a voluntary program and deliver significant benefits to the public. "

And we know this is a lie! It will be forced on all of us.

They will learn they are going to be dealing with people who managed to get along without all the new fan-dangled technology we have available today. WE DID IT BEFORE and WE CAN DO IT AGAIN!!!

Would we like to go without the convenience of paying bills , ordering with credit/debit cards, banking etc., all online? NO, but we could get used to it.

The Touch Table

Take look at this short video from PBS. This is program about a touch-table. (It's Google-Earth on steroids!!!!) About half way in the video it shows Iran 's nuclear facility and does an interesting thing. It moves the satellite pictures as a function of time in years and lets you see what has really has been happening there!

And what they "hid" or thought they "hid" underground!

Hillary’s Incurable Foot-In-Mouth Disease

Not sure if she fell before or after she made her stupid statement.

Hillary Clinton Falls While Boarding Plane


Hillary’s Incurable Foot-In-Mouth Disease

By Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

While speaking in an Arab nation, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a most disgraceful statement that the murder rampage in Tucson was an example of an American extremist just as there are Muslim Jihadists who commit awful acts not in line with the wishes of the majority of Muslims around the world. Well let us set the record straight for Ms. Clinton since she is either extremely stupid or alternatively and more likely trying to snuggle up to Muslim nations.

There are many thousands of Jihadists around the world who have committed acts of murder and violence for decades. Worse, peaceful Muslims will not speak out against them as silently offering their support for Jihad in order to rid the world of the ‘infidels’ who do not believe as they do. Those who commit Jihad are not insane but intolerant and know full well what their objectives are for the rest of the world..

In the United States, there are rare occurrences whereby deranged individuals commit murderous acts as happened in Arizona. In contrast to those who wage Jihad, they are mentally ill and usually delusional.

The news media has incessantly obsessed about the motives of a madman while failing to recognize that certain individuals who are mentally ill do not think normally and may have twisted ‘motives’ based upon delusional thinking and often hallucinations. So where is the connection between the young Arizona murderer and Jihadists, Ms. Clinton? Americans expect more of you but you have failed to understand the basic difference between mental derangement and sanity. You statement was an insult to America as you attempted to placate Muslims by painting Americans with a similar brush.

The media will try to distill the motives of the Arizona tragedy into a neat little package when there are none, further confirming how shallow if not intentionally distorted the secular progressive news media are. They incessantly try to blame any negative event on someone or some group with whom they do not agree politically when there is no connection but mere confabulation. Great example of liberal mental disorder!

This horrible incident in Arizona will not silence We the People who are fighting in defense of our Constitution and our freedom which have been increasingly assaulted by the Left---the same Left-wingers who were responsible for a number of bombing attacks such as the NYC police station in the 1960s, those who spat on our returning Viet Nam vets, and the despicable America hating pastor and his guests to whom Obama listened for more than 20 years before deciding that he was capable of changing America perhaps in ways which would satisfy his mentors.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Great write up about what Hillary said.

Hillary, Vince Foster deathly disagrees with you.

The Democrats are desperate right now and know they will be wiped out in 2012 if they don’t desperately do something on shutting down political freedom in this country.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano Axes Bush-Era 'Virtual Fence' Project

Virtual Fence Tower

Homeland Security Axes Bush-Era 'Virtual Fence' Project


The Department of Homeland Security today officially scrapped a Bush-era program designed to use radar technology to detect illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a DHS official and a congressional source.

The project, called "Virtual Fence," was rolled out under the Bush administration in 2006 with much fanfare about how technology could help secure the border. Illegal immigrants crossing the border would be detected by a radar and picked up by remote cameras, which were monitored by border patrol agents.

But numerous internal and Congressional reviews found consistent performance problems with the project's systems, which only spanned 53 miles of the vast U.S.-Mexico border.

The cameras often provided blurry images, the radar system performed poorly in bad weather, and it often displayed false detections that were unable to distinguish between humans, cars and animals.

There were also cost overruns and the primary contractor, Boeing, repeatedly missed deadlines, officials said.

"The SBInet program has been a grave and expensive disappointment since its inception," Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., ranking member of the House Homeland Security committee, said in a statement.

The system is estimated to cost about $1 billion. If the entire project had been accepted and rolled out, its cost would have exceeded $6 billion.

"We know that we cannot continue to put out millions and millions of dollars of taxpayer's money if we're not confident that it's really not going to work,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who ordered a review of the program upon taking office, said in October.

DHS officials say the program will not be a total loss and that Customs and Border Protection officers and Border Patrol agents will continue to use some of the systems that have been paid for.

“…The new plan “will utilize existing, proven technology tailored to the distinct terrain and population density of each border region, including commercially available Mobile Surveillance Systems, Unmanned Aircraft Systems, thermal imaging devices, and tower-based Remote Video Surveillance Systems.” Napolitano added…”

Wild Thing's comment.......

The virtual fence project never seemed viable but *what* is Napolitano proposing to do to secure the border in place of this project?

I want a moat and sniper towers along a thirty foot wall.

Aren’t we supposed to even HOPE for some homeland security from the department of homeland security?

So let's see, the real fence has been discontinued and now the virtual fence has been discontinued . They are more interested in how to secure an amnesty bill.

Pat Caddell Expresses His Distain for New York Times Columnist Paul Krugman

During an episode of the late late night Fox show known as “Red Eye”, former Jimmy Carter pollster and political analyst Pat Caddell expresses his distain for New York Times columnist Paul Krugman.

Daily Caller

On Fox News Channel’s Friday airing of “Red Eye,” host Greg Gutfeld wondered if the media was denial over the notion it had little to do with the actions of Jared Loughner, the suspect in the recent Tucson, Ariz. shooting.

“Here’s an interesting point — as the truth comes out about this nutcase, doesn’t it seem like the media can’t believe that the killer doesn’t care about them?” Gutfeld asked. “It’s like they think they had an impact on him, when in fact all he cares about is UFOs.”

That led Caddell to launch into a rant about the media, specifically naming New York Times columnist and Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman and Newsweek and Daily Beast columnist Jonathan Alter.

“He is a flat-out asshole.”, said Caddell..

" The point is – you know, this thing started – I have to say, when I look at [Paul] Krugman and Jonathan Alter, with his advice and the president, ‘Don’t let this go to waste – let’s make it like Oklahoma City,’ and Krugman who is just a flat-out asshole, I’m sorry – these people what they did…”

Caddell indicated their initial response should have been different.

“People are dead and the first thing you have to do is go to politics, I mean no wonder the country hates the media and hates the politicians,” he said.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I couldn’t agree more. I have posted other things Pat has said. LOLwhy is it this Democrat acts more like a Republican than most Republicans ? Pat what Democrats would be like if they were wired like conservatives inside, but just held different political views.

GOP Picks Priebus to Head Party

The new national Republican Party chairman says his party has to "get on track'' to "defeat Barack Obama in 2012.'' In a brief victory speech today, Reince Priebus asked for unity within the fractured 168-member Republican National Committee

Washington Post

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele bowed out of his longshot bid for a second term, bringing an end to a two-year tenure more defined by gaffes than the electoral victories his party racked up.

“I will step aside because I think the party is ready for something different,” said Steele before the fifth ballot for chairman began. He immediately threw his support to former RNC official Maria Cino’s candidacy.

Even in defeat, however Steele was unapologetic about his time in office. “I hope you all appreciate the legacy we leave,” he told the 168 members of the RNC. “Despite the noise, despite the difficulties, we won.”

Steele finished second on the first ballot, a single vote behind Wisconsin Republican party chairman Reince Priebus. But he progressively lost support as the balloting went on as the 168 committee members made clear that they have decided to move past his stormy time in office.

Wild Thing's comment........

I honestly don't know much about this man.

Let's hope and pray that the GOP has chosen someone that is NOT a RINO and someone that will do a good job.

New Facts About "Together We Thrive" ~ Obama Uses Deaths Of Americans To Campaign!!!

"Together We Thrive’ T-Shirts at the Tucson Memorial

by Tommy Christopher

Media ITE

Among attempts by some conservatives to cast last night’s “Together We Thrive” memorial for victims of the massacre in Tucson in a negative light were suggestions that the White House was involved in designing and distributing t-shirts at the event. While that notion has already been partially debunked, we looked into the rumors, and besides a frank denial from the White House, we’ve uncovered some relevant details about the shirts, which were, infact, distributed by the University of Arizona.

This type of smear is nothing new, and despite the apparent absurdity of the claim, I checked with the White House, anyway. A senior administration official confirmed the widely-reported fact that the administration had nothing to do with the shirts.

University of Arizona spokesperson Jennifer Fitzenberger told me that the shirts were, indeed, provided by the University. “The University wanted to give people something to remember that symbolized community spirit and continued the event’s positive energy into the future,” she said.

According to Fitzenberger, the shirts were designed by a University of Arizona student, and they cost about $60,000. “The University will pay for them,” she noted. “No tuition, state allocations, tax dollars or student fees will be used.”

Many have also wondered how the shirts were produced so quickly. According to Fitzenberger, “The UA BookStores made the arrangements to produce the shirts. The BookStores knew a vendor that could turn them around fast.”


NOW CHECK THIS OUT!!!!...Clilck the link below and see it first hand, they still have it up.

Together We Thrive

By John Berry IV - Feb 11, 2008 12:49:37 AM ET
Also listed in: Collin County for Obama | Obama Dallas

For too long Americans have been set one against the other, it is a side affect of a free market society. How can profits be maximized, how can I get the work done for the lowest possible costs. This continually sets one group against the other, especially in the blue collar sectors of America. It has become a part of the American Business model, whether it was indentured servants, slaves picking cotton, sharecroppers, the industrious people that built the railroads or todays migrant workers. As long as we remain divided, fighting for the scraps that America has to offer it will be one group against the other.

What I see in Obama is a chance for a revolution. A chance for every group to participate and be heard; A chance to live the American dream that has been denied to so many. Together we can and will change the world and return America to the shining beacon of Hope and Prosperity that we were and that we can be again. Only when we work together do we accomplish feats that rival any ever accomplished in the history of mankind. Diversity is our strength, that is what this campaign brings us a promise of. For many this is a scary prospect and thought, getting to know someone different from myself. We all want the same basic things for example a safe place to live, health and a quality education for our kids.

In a previous career, I was the global leader of Diversity for a global fortune 500 corporation, I have studied the affects of diverse groups working together and the results can not be denied. Together we Thrive!!!!!!!!!!!


Good grief......they even have a page at Facebook.

"Together We Thrive" (by

I clicked on the word Info and this is what it says about it.

A simple idea: Start speaking and acting in ways that bring us together rather than tear us apart. Bring our differing views to the table with unity as our core principle, and together we can create the building blocks to compromise. Move forward for positive change while leaving behind the extreme negativity and hate. We can accomplish this not only in our government but as a nation. It's up to each and every one of us individually to move in a positive direction in our lives. Together We Thrive, indeed.

Chicanos Unidos Arizona members attend ‘Together We Thrive’ memorial

While the Phoenix Public Library broadcast last night’s historic ‘Together We Thrive’ event, several members of Chicanos Unidos Arizona were bussed in from Phoenix to Tuscan for the event and here are the reports:

Aldemar Suarez: “Last night’s event was historic. The unity was amazing, until Jan Brewer took the stage. Then, there were people booing. But when Barack Obama spoke, the audience listened. He is a true American hero."

Cecilia Maldonano: “It might have seemed more like a pep rally than a memorial service, but there is a reason for that. Everybody was eager to celebrate the heroism that surrounded the event rather than the loss of life.”

George Gonzales: “I was escorted from the back of the hall to the front by security, who told me there were a few empty seats that needed to be filled. I sat pretty close to Daniel Hernandez and Michelle Obama. It was an evening I will never forget.”

Unfortunately, even though I am the president of Chicanos Unidos Arizona, I had to watch from the Phoenix Public Library. But I’m so happy my members were able to attend. What did you think of the memorial?


Wild Thing's comment.........

Thank you Mark for the graphic at the top, this is so perfect for what they did.

A friend of mine wrote me that the city buses also were displaying the Together We Thrive slogan on their destination signs on Wednesday.

Those tees and the slogan were incredibly distasteful, inappropriate, and tacky for what should have been a very somber occasion. We are witnessing subliminal propaganda all the time by the present Obama and his administration. The “Together We Thrive” campaign memorialization theme will erase “America and Tucson” and start using other implications, so that everything runs together.

Everything here is visual and uses the absence of information, a la the stonewalling of DOJ on the Hasan shooter case, lack of the count of dead daily in Iraq or Afghanistan, questioning of government officials before Congress, or the bringing of charges against the Black Panthers, as evidence. This is also the Birth Certificate issue all over again, by virtue of the fact that its lack of release is being used to advance an agenda as though the agenda is legitimate.

If we do not hear or see opposition, it will not exist. If we remove the ability to speak opposition, it will not exist. If we do not learn what opposition is, it will not exist. It is the absence of these things that highlights what this agenda really is.

Welcome to the ‘new’ civility. Hush now, and remember to “do as you’re told.” All you need to know will be done in darkness ahead of time; you have no clearance except what the ‘we’ in ‘yes we can’ decides what you ‘need to know.’

"If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing about it? The recent practice of propaganda has proved that it is possible, at least up to a certain point and within certain limits." by -Edward Bernays

“The Engineering of Consent” is an essay by Edward Bernays first published in 1947. He defines “engineering consent” as the art of manipulating people; specifically, the American public, who are described as “fundamentally irrational people... who could not be trusted.”

I think we should all look for word “Thrive” in the next election cycle.

The article about this is all bullshit. When the president is speaking at any venue, NOTHING happens without express permission of the White House. This doesn’t just go for this administration, but every administration in the modern era has operated under those same terms. No one drapes shirts over the back of chairs at a venue that is hosting the President, without someone on the President’s advance staff giving their OK.

I don’t care who paid for them, or whose idea they originally were. They were distributed with the approval of the White House. Also, it’s disingenuous for any reporter who has worked in the WH press pool to pretend otherwise. You can’t be around the WH media machine and NOT realize that the WH controls – entirely – the optics of any presidential visit.

If you can get a Catholic university to remove it’s seal that bears the cross, you can certainly keep some college kids from distributing tee-shirts.

Pelosi Calls Tucson Murders an “Accident”…

FOX Nation

Yesterday, on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, deposed Speaker, Nancy Pelosi (D-Mars), called the deliberate and premeditated killing of six people – the Tucson massacre – an “accident.” Specifically, Madame said, quote:

“This resolution is a fitting tribute. It is a great resolution. Please, read it again and again. Carry those names in your heart. Remember, each of these people because, again, a tragic accident took lives, wounded people in the expression of ideas.”

GOP: Healthcare (Socialized Medicine) Repeal Vote Next Week and NO Name Change Of Bill

GOP: Healthcare repeal vote next week

Republicans agreed with the White House today that it’s time to get back to work. GOP leaders announced that the vote to repeal Obamacare will be held next week.

Beltway Confidential

The U.S. House of Representatives will vote next week on a bill that would repeal the healthcare reform law, the majority leader’s office said Thursday.

The original vote was scheduled for Wednesday but was postponed after the shooting tragedy in Tucson, in which six people died and 13 people, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., were injured.

“As the White House noted, it is important for Congress to get back to work, and to that end we will resume thoughtful consideration of the healthcare bill next week,” Laena Fallon, spokeswoman for Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., told The Hill. “It is our expectation that the debate will continue to focus on those substantive policy differences surrounding the new law.”

Republicans say they have no plans to change the name of the bill, "Repealing the Job Killing Health Care Reform Act," despite Democratic criticism that it should not include the word "killing."

Wild Thing's comment.........

Good one Republicans....and stay strong!!!!

"As the White House noted, it is important for Congress to get back to work..."

A big heh heh for saying it this way...........BEAUTIFUL.

I heard some dimwit Dem claim on Fox Radio News that it was too soon for congress to engage in such a devisive issue.

I mean sheesh, they are going to use what happened in AZ as lon g as they can for any and everything that do not want to happen.

And to say it is too soon? The heck with that. The DEMOCRATS crammed the bill through in the dead of night, behind closed doors with crooked deals cut on Christmas Eve.

The democrats wanting to change the name good grief! Thank God the Republicans said no way on this too.

Former Judge to AZ Sheriff: ‘Shut Up Before You Do Any More Damage to the Prosecution’s Case’

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas)

Former Judge to AZ Sheriff: ‘Shut Up Before You Do Any More Damage to the Prosecution’s Case’


Rep. Louis Gohmert (R.-Texas), a former prosecutor and judge and a current member of the House Judiciary Committee, is offering some advice to Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who has gained national attention since Saturday for his suggestions that radio and television talk shows were somehow responsible for the shooting attack in Tucson that took the lives of 6 people and wounded 14 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Says Rep. Gohmert to the sheriff: “Shut up before you do any more damage to the prosecution’s case.”

At the Capitol on Wednesday, Gohmert told, “As far as advice for the sheriff, you know, he’s an elected official. He’s an American. He’s not prohibited by law from making the ridiculous statements that he has that do more to help the defendant than they do anyone else, including the victims. And so, I know as a former prosecutor, my advice to the sheriff would be to shut up before you do any more damage to the prosecution’s case.”

“Quit helping the defendant, sheriff,” Gohmert said. “But if he wants to help the defendant, he’s elected by the local people, and he’s free to help the defendant with their defense, if that’s what he chooses to do. And then the people can decide in the next election if that’s the kind of sheriff they want.”

"My advice to him?" said Gohmert, "if I were his prosecutor" 'Stop destroying our case while we're still trying to investigate.' And, further, if you do some more investigation as much as you've been running off at the mouth, we're going to have an airtight case."

When speaking at a press conference on Jan. 8, the day of the shooting, Dupnik said that Arizona had become the “mecca for prejudice and bigotry” and that “the vitriolic rhetoric that we hear day in and day out from people in the radio business and some people in the TV business” should prompt America “to do a little soul-searching.”

Also, on Monday, Jan. 10, Dupnik told ABC News, "The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush Limbaugh, in my judgment he is irresponsible, uses partial information, sometimes wrong information, attacks people, angers them against government, angers them against elected officials and that kind of behavior in my opinion is not without consequences. And I think he’s irresponsible.”

When asked by ABC’s Diane Sawyer if it was right to link that kind of rhetoric to the shooting, Dupnik said, “Of course.” asked Rep. Gohmert if he has seen any hard evidence linking accused shooter Jared Lee Loughner to talk radio hosts or to American politicians, as Sheriff Dupnik has suggested.

Gohmert said, “What I have read and seen more indications of were that apparently this guy hated the flag, loved Karl Marx and [Hitler’s] Mein Kampf and had been an atheist. So, obviously, if there'd been talk show people who have enflamed him, it may be people the sheriff listens to, but it’s certainly not Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh or people that the sheriff kept trying to point to. And you know, during my days as a judge, you start noticing when people like that stand up and start accusing without any evidence other people. Normally you have to start on, okay, this guys got something to hide.”

Gohmert continued: “There’s something underneath here for a law enforcement official to immediately come out, without any evidence whatsoever and, in fact, evidence being to the contrary of what he’s saying, must have something to hide. We need to look into that, you know, ‘What did he know before this all happened?’ Was this lashing out coming from a guilty conscience? He knew things that he should have acted on that would have saved lives?”

Regarding the shooting in Tucson, Gohmert also said he is concerned that people are talking about restricting political discourse and free speech.

“What concerns is when people start talking about putting a lid on debate and disputes and discussions even when they’re a bit heated,” he said, “because one of the things that’s made America great is the differences of opinion. Unless one of us has a 100 percent lock 100 percent of the time on God’s truth, then we ought to listen to each other. Debate’s a good thing.”

Gohmert continued: “It’s what the Founders wanted when they created not one body but two bodies and that wasn’t enough to create the kind of gridlock they hoped for. They created a president that would be elected from another manner, not like a prime minister, and they created a judicial branch that could also veto them. They wanted some gridlock because they didn’t want it to too easy to make laws. They wanted disagreement.”


Wild Thing's comment........

I sure like what this ( former Judge ) Rep. Louie Gohmert has said.

It was mentioned on FOX on Sunday (only once) that the mother of the shooter worked for this sheriff (with the county parks commission as some sort of parks manager) and got his record expunged so that he could join the Army.

Also interesting to note, it was a park police officer that stopped him (the shooter) for running a red light, three hours before the mass murder, and let him off with a warning.

It is my firm belief that Pima County Sheriff Dupnick is PURPOSELY trying to sabotage the prosecution's case as a way to cover his own incompetence. This man should be removed from his job and prosecuted for obstruction of justice.

DEMOCRAT Vice President Joe Biden: One more GOP budget gripe and "I am going to strangle them"

Biden: One more GOP budget gripe and 'I am going to strangle them'

The Hill

Vice President Biden jokingly expressed his frustration toward Republicans on Tuesday, accusing them of having insincere concerns about the budget deficit.

Biden jokingly said that GOP protests about the need for a balanced budget made him want to strangle them, which the vice president quickly clarified was a figure of speech.

“If I hear one more Republican tell me about balancing the budget, I am going to strangle them,” Biden said at a fundraiser in Minnesota, according to a pool report. “To the press, that’s a figure of speech.”

Obama and other members of the administration have ridiculed Republicans as trying to have it both ways on budget issues. For all the GOP's complaints about the ballooning deficit over the past 20 months, Democrats charge, their plan to extend all tax cuts for top earners would add hundreds of billions to the debt.

“These guys have absolutely no credibility, no credibility on debt,” Biden said.

But Republicans argue that the administration has been reckless in its handling of the economy, pointing foremost to the administration's $787 billion stimulus plan, which Republicans assert has not created jobs at a massive cost to taxpayers.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Hello Biden, your democrats never presented a budget that I know of, so maybe you need to shut up and listen to what the Republicans have in mind.

If a Republican said that about strangle you can bet it would be huge with the MSM. The democrats KNOW the media will let them off the hook .

Obama Campaigns At Memorial Service Passes Out T-Shits " “Together we Thrive”


Wild Thing's comment.......

We missed it when it first aired so I watched a repeat of the so called memorial so I could post about it.

Just when you think they can’t be any more crass and disgusting....they go and outdo themselves again.

This “memorial” has been the most appalling spectacle I have ever witnessed. Screaming, whistling going on. Some overt political messages. Good grief.

Remember the memorial for Paul Welstone? That ended up to be a disgusting campaign rally for obama. I never cared for Paul Welstone, but the point is what they did for his memorial.

No matter what the occasion, obama treats it like a campaign rally. No class, no honor, no dignity. I thought it would have been a more somber, reflective event not a pep rally.

The scripture readings were supportive but the cheering and especially when Obama took the stage as if they were cheering a rock star at a concert just seemed poor decorum.

Nothing is beneath the dispicable left. They say no one should politicize something, then they do it. They say the right should tone down its rhetoric, as they repetitously use vile commentary.

Obama was not empathizing with the victims’ families. The guy has never felt empathy in his life other than for himself.

Did Obama just kick off his re-election campaign at a memorial? “Together we Thrive” is the new “Hope and Change.”

Also no Christian minister was asked to participate in the pep rall... er memorial service.FOX said there would not be a traditional pastor or minister at this memorial. Very odd indeed. Instead they had somem kind of medicine man/ Indian guy. He gave a Native American Blessing.

Death Threats Against Sarah Palin at 'Unprecedented Level,' Aides Say

ABC News

An aide close to Sarah Palin says death threats and security threats have increased to an unprecedented level since the shooting in Arizona, and the former Alaska governor's team has been talking to security professionals.

Palin has taken much heat for her "crosshairs" map that targeted 20 congressional Democrats in the 2010 mid-term election, including that of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was the main target of Saturday's attack.

Friends say Palin, a possible 2012 contender, was galled as suggestions of her role in the tragedy have swirled.

Palin responded in detail today to the attacks leveled against her, but while her intentions may have been to shift the blame away from herself, she instead put her in the hot seat again.

"Journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn," she said in an early morning Facebook post today.

The term "blood libel" has been used historically to falsely accuse Jews of using Christian children's blood to prepare their Passover matzoh. The myth is said to have begun in Europe as early as the 12th century, perpetuated by the death of a small boy in England in 1144.

It's a term that Jews say has been used to incite anti-Semitism and justify violence against them for centuries.

Palin's use of the word has triggered some deep emotions, even among those who believe Palin has been a target of unfair criticism since the Tucson shooting.

The Jewish Fund for Justice assailed Palin for abusing a tragic episode in Jewish history.

"We are deeply disturbed" by her commentary, president Simon Greer said in a statement today. "Unless someone has been accusing Ms. Palin of killing Christian babies and making matzoh from their blood, her use of the term is totally out of line."

The National Jewish Democratic Council called the video a step in the wrong direction.

"This is of course a particularly heinous term for American Jews, given that the repeated fiction of blood libels are directly responsible for the murder of so many Jews across centuries -- and given that blood libels are so directly intertwined with deeply ingrained anti-Semitism around the globe, even today," it said in a statement.

"The last thing the country needs now is for the rhetoric in the wake of this tragedy to return to where it was before," liberal group J Street said in a statement. "We hope that Governor Palin will recognize, when it is brought to her attention, that the term 'blood libel' brings back painful echoes of a very dark time in our communal history when Jews were falsely accused of committing heinous deeds."

But not all Jews are offended by the term. Liberal political commentator and Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz pointed out that the term has been used frequently as a metaphor and in a broader context.

"The term 'blood libel' has taken on a broad metaphorical meaning in public discourse," he said in a statement to "I myself have used it to describe false accusations against the State of Israel by the Goldstone Report. There is nothing improper and certainly nothing anti-Semitic in Sarah Palin using the term to characterize what she reasonably believes are false accusations that her words or images may have caused a mentally disturbed individual to kill and maim."

Wild Thing's comment.........

I am so sick and tired of the liberals. They better be ready with the repercussions if anything happens to Sarah. The Media and everyone on the left are pushing something that is pure evil and could cause a war on our soil and they will be the ones to blame for it. They are stocking the flames. Idiots do not have any idea what they are doing.

The liberals and the media lit a dangerous fuse this week, trying to place blame, without any facts or connections!!!

Sarah is under strong attack and needs strong prayers for protection.

Hillary Clinton Says Tucson Shooting Was Extremism Like The Al Qaeda

Clinton: Arizona shooting a form of 'extremism"


Hillary Clinton told CNN that she believes the shooting tragedy in Tucson, Arizona was motivated from “political extremism.”

“Based on what I know, this is a criminal defendant who was in some ways motivated by his own political views, who had a particular animus toward the congresswoman, and I think when you cross the line from expressing opinions that are of conflicting differences in our political environment into taking action – violent action- that’s a hallmark of extremism. Whether it comes from the right, the left, Al Qaeda, from anarchists, whoever it is.”

In remarks on the shooting in the United Arab Emirates on Sunday, Clinton said the incident was proof there were extremists in the U.S.

"I think that when you're a criminal who is in some way pursuing criminal activity connected to - however bizarre and poorly thought through - your political views, that's a form of extremism," she said on Wednesday.

Wild Thing's comment........

Good Lord! To compare what happened in AZ. to what the Al Qaeda is about????!!!!

When Nidal Hassan killed 13 and wounded 32 at Fort Hood in what by all accounts (those of first hand witnesses and those with prior experience with Hassan) an act of islamic terrorism - Obama and crew nearly bent themselves in half trying to disassociate his horrific act of terrorism from his ideaology. They IMMEDIATLY blamed EVERYTHING other than the reality that this pile of filth chose to kill his fellow soldiers in the name of allah.

Then this killer in AZ. who is a REGISTERED INDEPENDENT, who has NO history of political activism, and who has NO affiliation with right-wing causes is represented in front of our nation and by THE SECRETARY OF STATE IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE WORLD as an "extremist."

Sarah Palin Responds - "America's Enduring Strength"

Sarah Palin responds to both the tragedy in Arizona and the political exploitation of this event. She doesn’t name names or point the finger defensively at any one person, but rather turns this into a teaching moment for America, suggesting that this is when America’s core values need protecting the most. This is perhaps her most presidential speech:

Like millions of Americans I learned of the tragic events in Arizona on Saturday, and my heart broke for the innocent victims. No words can fill the hole left by the death of an innocent, but we do mourn for the victims’ families as we express our sympathy.

I agree with the sentiments shared yesterday at the beautiful Catholic mass held in honor of the victims. The mass will hopefully help begin a healing process for the families touched by this tragedy and for our country.

Our exceptional nation, so vibrant with ideas and the passionate exchange and debate of ideas, is a light to the rest of the world. Congresswoman Giffords and her constituents were exercising their right to exchange ideas that day, to celebrate our Republic’s core values and peacefully assemble to petition our government. It’s inexcusable and incomprehensible why a single evil man took the lives of peaceful citizens that day.

There is a bittersweet irony that the strength of the American spirit shines brightest in times of tragedy. We saw that in Arizona. We saw the tenacity of those clinging to life, the compassion of those who kept the victims alive, and the heroism of those who overpowered a deranged gunman.

Like many, I’ve spent the past few days reflecting on what happened and praying for guidance. After this shocking tragedy, I listened at first puzzled, then with concern, and now with sadness, to the irresponsible statements from people attempting to apportion blame for this terrible event.

President Reagan said, “We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.” Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing districts used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their First Amendment rights at campaign rallies, not with those who proudly voted in the last election.

The last election was all about taking responsibility for our country’s future. President Obama and I may not agree on everything, but I know he would join me in affirming the health of our democratic process. Two years ago his party was victorious. Last November, the other party won. In both elections the will of the American people was heard, and the peaceful transition of power proved yet again the enduring strength of our Republic.

Vigorous and spirited public debates during elections are among our most cherished traditions. And after the election, we shake hands and get back to work, and often both sides find common ground back in D.C. and elsewhere. If you don’t like a person’s vision for the country, you’re free to debate that vision. If you don’t like their ideas, you’re free to propose better ideas. But, especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.

There are those who claim political rhetoric is to blame for the despicable act of this deranged, apparently apolitical criminal. And they claim political debate has somehow gotten more heated just recently. But when was it less heated? Back in those “calm days” when political figures literally settled their differences with dueling pistols? In an ideal world all discourse would be civil and all disagreements cordial. But our Founding Fathers knew they weren’t designing a system for perfect men and women. If men and women were angels, there would be no need for government. Our Founders’ genius was to design a system that helped settle the inevitable conflicts caused by our imperfect passions in civil ways. So, we must condemn violence if our Republic is to endure.

As I said while campaigning for others last March in Arizona during a very heated primary race, “We know violence isn’t the answer. When we ‘take up our arms’, we’re talking about our vote.” Yes, our debates are full of passion, but we settle our political differences respectfully at the ballot box – as we did just two months ago, and as our Republic enables us to do again in the next election, and the next. That’s who we are as Americans and how we were meant to be. Public discourse and debate isn’t a sign of crisis, but of our enduring strength. It is part of why America is exceptional.

No one should be deterred from speaking up and speaking out in peaceful dissent, and we certainly must not be deterred by those who embrace evil and call it good. And we will not be stopped from celebrating the greatness of our country and our foundational freedoms by those who mock its greatness by being intolerant of differing opinion and seeking to muzzle dissent with shrill cries of imagined insults.

Just days before she was shot, Congresswoman Giffords read the First Amendment on the floor of the House. It was a beautiful moment and more than simply “symbolic,” as some claim, to have the Constitution read by our Congress. I am confident she knew that reading our sacred charter of liberty was more than just “symbolic.” But less than a week after Congresswoman Giffords reaffirmed our protected freedoms, another member of Congress announced that he would propose a law that would criminalize speech he found offensive.

It is in the hour when our values are challenged that we must remain resolved to protect those values. Recall how the events of 9-11 challenged our values and we had to fight the tendency to trade our freedoms for perceived security. And so it is today.

Let us honor those precious lives cut short in Tucson by praying for them and their families and by cherishing their memories. Let us pray for the full recovery of the wounded. And let us pray for our country. In times like this we need God’s guidance and the peace He provides. We need strength to not let the random acts of a criminal turn us against ourselves, or weaken our solid foundation, or provide a pretext to stifle debate.

America must be stronger than the evil we saw displayed last week. We are better than the mindless finger-pointing we endured in the wake of the tragedy. We will come out of this stronger and more united in our desire to peacefully engage in the great debates of our time, to respectfully embrace our differences in a positive manner, and to unite in the knowledge that, though our ideas may be different, we must all strive for a better future for our country. May God bless America.

- Sarah Palin

Westboro Baptist "Church " From Hell Going Even Lower

Arizonans Rally to Prevent Westboro Church Disruption of Shooting Victims' Funerals

FOX News

By Judson Berger

Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Funeral of 9-Yr-Old Girl Murdered in Tucson

Arizona residents are locking arms to stop the Westboro Baptist Church from disrupting the funerals for victims of Saturday's shooting in Tucson, with bikers and others organizing a massive counter-protest and state lawmakers fast-tracking a bill to hamstring the group.

The Kansas-based Westboro church is notorious for showing up at the funerals of dead soldiers and other high-profile gatherings wielding anti-gay signs.

But when the church announced it would picket the funeral Thursday for the 9-year-old girl fatally shot over the weekend at a Tucson grocery store by a gunman who allegedly killed five others and injured 14 others attending a town-hall session by Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Tucson- and Phoenix-area residents started organizing immediately.

They may not be able to stop them, but they plan on giving the grieving family as much of a buffer as possible between the protesters and the service.

Arizona state lawmakers approved emergency legislation that would order protesters to stay 300 feet away from the funeral. The bill passed unanimously in the House and the Senate is now headed to Gov. Jan Brewer for her expected signature

Obama Known For His Threats Toward The American People Calls His "Mini Me" Sheriff Dupnik To Thank Him

Obama called the dishonorable Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik today to thank him. This was after this POS Sheriff attacked in hate speech Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, tea partyers and conservatives.

ABC News

Political Pupnch

by Jack Tapper

Obama spoke today with Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, families of some of the victims, Rep. Giffords’ Rabbi and two of the heroes that helped in the Arizona tragedy on Saturday.

In a phone call this afternoon with Sheriff Dupnik, according to White House spokesman Nicholas Shapiro, the President “thanked him for his department’s efforts to respond to this incident and coordinate with the FBI and Director Mueller on the investigation.”

Additionally the president also spoke with Patricia Maisch and Roger Salzgeber, two of the heroes from the shooting.

Arizona Newspaper To Sheriff Dupnik: "Get a grip! we have to say at last . . . enough. Enough attacks, sheriff. Enough vitriol "

Pima County sheriff should remember duty

The Arizona Republic

On Saturday afternoon, with his friend Gabby Giffords in surgery fighting for her life, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik railed against the tense partisan politics – “the anger, the hatred, the bigotry” – that prompted the mass murders outside Tucson, in his view.

And, jarring as such claims may be, we understood. Or tried to understand, despite the spectacle of a lawman – an official whose very job it is to dispassionately gather facts and to maintain order and calm – tying the attack on Rep. Giffords and others to political speech in Arizona, which he considers prejudiced and bigoted. There is no evidence that the state’s politics in any way contributed to this atrocity.

Was Dupnik unnecessarily inflammatory? It seemed so. But it came mere hours following a horrific, bloody mass murder. If you weren’t on edge, you weren’t being human. But then, on Sunday, the venting continued anew. And a horrified nation began paying closer attention to the Pima County sheriff.

The world’s eyes, once again, focused on Arizona for the worst of reasons. And Dupnik stood before the cameras interpreting the shootings as politically motivated, despite an increasing weight of evidence depicting the shooting suspect, Jared Loughner, as a mentally ill young man who rambled incoherently about pervasive bad grammar and other apolitical obsessions. Even Dupnik has observed that Loughner had made death threats against others and that they had been investigated by police.

Still, Dupnik used the opportunities to blame Arizona’s lax, new gun laws and, again, the angry “rhetoric” of talk radio. The shootings were spurred, he suggested, by “the rhetoric about hatred, about mistrust of government, about paranoia of how government operates.”

Dupnik took up his cause again on Monday. And, in response, we have to say at last . . . enough. Enough attacks, sheriff. Enough vitriol. It is well past time for the sheriff of Pima County to get a grip on his emotions and remember his duty.

Maj. Richard "Dick" Winters WW11 'Band of Brothers" War Hero Dies At 92

Maj. Richard "Dick" Winters in 2002. The story of Winters leading Easy Company during World War II were chronicled in the book and miniseries, "Band of Brothers."


Richard 'Dick' Winters, whose WWII heroics were immortalized in 'Band of Brothers,' is dead at 92

Daily News

Richard (Dick) Winters, the Army commander whose heroism during World War II was immortalized in the book and television miniseries "Band of Brothers," died last week in central Pennsylvania. He was 92.

An intensely private man, Winters had instructed loved ones not to release news of his death until after his funeral. He died on Jan. 2 from complications of Parkinson’s disease, his family said.

The story of Winters and other members of Company E, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, known as Easy Company, was chronicled in a book by Stephen Ambrose and later the 10-part miniseries on HBO.

English actor Damian Lewis portrayed Winters as a strong, humble leader who guided his men through the European theater of the war after parachuting into Normandy on D-Day.

Winters also led his men through a grueling wintertime standoff during the Battle of the Bulge and was eventually promoted to the rank of major.

Winters was potrayed in the HBO series by actor Damian Lewis, left. (HBO)


After the war, he trained infantry and Army Rangers at Fort Dix in New Jersey before starting a company that sold livestock feed to farmers and settling into a quiet life on a farm in Hershey, Pa.

The men of Easy Company expressed their admiration for their company commander after learning of his death.

William Guarnere, 88, said what he remembers about Winters was "great leadership."

"When he said 'Let's go,' he was right in the front," Guarnere, who was called "Wild Bill" by his comrades, said. "He was never in the back. A leader personified."

"He was a good man, a very good man," Guarnere added. "I would follow him to hell and back. So would the men from E Company."

Another member of the unit living in Philadelphia, Edward Heffron, 87, said he got choked up thinking of his former commander.

"He was one hell of a guy, one of the greatest soldiers I was ever under," said Heffron, who was nicknamed Babe. "He was a wonderful officer, a wonderful leader. He had what you needed, guts and brains. He took care of his men, that's very important."

The television series was nominated for 19 Emmy awards, and Winters published a memoir about his experiences in the war in 2006 called "Beyond Band of Brothers."

Writing about leadership to American History magazine in 2004, Winters said, "If you can, find that peace within yourself, that peace and quiet and confidence that you can pass on to others, so that they know that you are honest and you are fair and will help them, no matter what, when the chips are down."

Tom Hanks, who produced 'Band of Brothers,' with Winters at the Emmy awards in 2002.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Such an admirable man. Rest in peace. Prayers for Major Winters family.

It is so sad, they are leaving us one by one.

I’ll never forget him saying this on TV: “ by grandson asked me if I was a “hero” in the war........

R. Lee Ermey Apologizes For Obama 'socialism' Comment

R. Lee Ermey apologizes for Obama 'socialism' comment


The Blaze reports Tuesday that retired Marine drill instructor R. Lee Ermey issued an apology for remarks he made last week regarding President Obama destroying America and implementing socialism.

Speaking to a crowd about the Toys for Tots program, Ermey said it was struggling because "the economy really sucks."

After blaming the Obama administration he said, "they're not gonna quit doing it until they bring this country to its knees..."

In a message on his website, Ermey writes:

“I recently appeared at a fundraising event designed to collect toys and raise awareness for underprivileged children. While that event succeeded in raising thousands of dollars and hundreds of toys for this cause, I regret that I delivered a monologue that was inappropriately critical of the President. I was trying to be entertaining and simply went too far in this instance. I am mindful that my success as an entertainer relates in part to my experience in the Marine Corps, my devotion to its members, and the deep respect I have for members of all our Armed Forces. My comments should not be seen as reflecting on them or their views. I was just very disappointed in the amount of success that we were having raising toys and money for the underprivileged children this season. The poor economy has greatly hampered our efforts. My comments were misguided, and emotionally based, and for that I am truly sorry.”

Semper Fi

According to a post at Mediaite, GEICO - the insurance company Ermey represents in one if its' commercials - recently fired voice actor Lance Baxter for making political comments on his own time, and wondered if Ermey would suffer the same fate.

John Moore, the man who originally uploaded the video, believes that following Ermey's apology, GEICO should not only keep Ermey, but also rehire Baxter.

Jonathon M. Seidl writes:

But some may just wonder if this is Ermey crossing into “mamby pamby land”.

Let's hope not.

Wild Thing's comment........

He spoke the truth, I wish he didn't apologize. I do wonder if GEICO had contacted him and others where it might have put pressure on him.

Someone posted at Facebook that Keith Olbermann called on his viewers to boycott Geico over Gunny.

It may have been the “wrong venue”, but kind of like taking the wrong hill, at least that’s ground that we won’t have to take again. The viral video did it’s job. It exposed a socialist and opened some additional discussion about how dire our circumstances are.

The TOTAL Hypocrisy Of The Left As They Have NO Shame For Their LIES and Attacks On Anyone On The Right!!!

Remember how Paul Krugman got all hot and bothered about Sarah Palin's map?

Each of the cross-hairs represents a Democrat from a conservative district who voted in favor of health reform. Immediately after highlighting the map, Krugman wrote:

"All of this goes far beyond politics as usual…you’ll search in vain for anything comparably menacing, anything that even hinted at an appeal to violence, from members of Congress, let alone senior party officials….to find anything like what we’re seeing now you have to go back to the last time a Democrat was president."

The map appears on this page of the Democratic Leadership Committee website (dated 2004 during the Bush years). I guess we could argue over whether the DLC counts as “senior party officials” but they’re certainly as much a part of the party as Palin who, after all, currently holds no elected office.

Granted these are bulls-eyes instead of gun-sights, and the targets are states not individual congressmen. But we’re really splitting hairs at this point. This map and the language it uses (Behind enemy lines!) are, if anything, more militant than what Palin used in her Facebook posting.

But wait, there’s more!

When Palin’s map became an issue, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, leader of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), rushed on MSNBC to denounce it, telling Chris Matthews:

"I really think that that is crossing a line…In this particular environment I think it’s really dangerous to try and make your point in that particular way because there are people who are taking that kind of thing seriously."

Each one of those red targets represents a “Targeted Republican” like this one below :


And this is from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) website. They launched the site and the map on February 23rd of this last year, making it just over a month year old. And yet Van Hollen was quoted by Politico just today denouncing Republicans for “pouring more and more gasoline on the flames.”

Rep. Van Hollen used MSNBC to claim Palin’s map was dangerous. In fact, the website of the organization he runs has a nearly identical map. Rep. Van Hollen should be asked to explain the differences between the two maps. Specifically, what makes Palin’s map “dangerous” and his map not so much?

Paul Krugman used the megaphone of the NY Times to state that Palin’s Facebook map went “far beyond politics as usual.” He further claimed, “you will search in vain for anything comparably menacing…from members of Congress.” Notice he didn’t say it was hard to find or rare. He said, in effect, that it didn’t exist. But since my search was not in vain, the Times should issue a correction noting that Krugman got it wrong.


Wild Thing's comment........

Just how low can former-economist Hack Columnist Paul Krugman, hysteric-in-chief for The New York Times, go!!???!!

And, for crying out loud, everybody in politics and in the chattering classes uses terms like “targeted” or “targeting” in political contexts like elections and legislation, with no violent meaning whatsoever.

The bad part to is we can spend all day castigating the Marxist like Krugman and Mathews, but to them it is water off of a duck’s back. They do the hit and run and get ready to do it again. They could not care less about the facts. They are just part of the Commie propaganda machine.

Once again......Obama’s political vitriol ...
“They bring a knife, we bring a gun”
- to his supporters: “Get in their faces!”
- on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
- to his mercenary army: “Hit back twice as hard”
- on the private sector: “We talk to these folk. So I know whose ass to kick.“
- to voters: “Republican victory would mean hand-to-hand combat”
- to liberal supporters: “It’s time to fight for it.”
- to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”

Sheriff Dupnik Says People Can Have Their Own Opinion...THEN He Proceeds To Do His Hate Speeches IF You Do Not Agree With Him

Sheriff Clarence Dupnik Attacks Rush Limbaugh

“The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush Limbaugh, in my judgment, he’s irresponsible; uses partial information, sometimes wrong information. Attacks people, angers them against government, angers them against elected officials and that kind of behavior, in my opinion, is without consequence and I think he’s irresponsible,” Sheriff Dupnik told ABC News.

DUPNIK: "The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush Limbaugh in my judgement, he's irresponsible, uses partial information, attacks people, angers them against government, angers them against elected officials, that kind of behavior is not without consequences and I think he's irresponsible"

SAWYER: "Is it right to link him with this horrible incident?...That it is somehow linked?"

DUPNIK: "Of course"


Sheriff Knew About Loughner’s Actions & Previous Threats – Failed to Act

James Taranto, the editor of the and author of its popular Best of the Web Today column at The Wall Street Journal. Tonight Taranto questioned Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik’s culpability in the Arizona supermarket slaughter.

“I’d like to make one additional point on Sheriff Dupnik. I think we’re missing the point when we’re talking about his political agenda. This man and this suspect has had previous contact with the sheriff’s office. It looks to me, we don’t have many details on this, but it looks as though he slipped between the cracks. I think what we really need to look into is what happened when he had previous contact with the sheriff’s office with their negligence here. And, I think the sheriff is trying to distract from that question.”


Rush Limbaugh Blasts Lib Media on the Az. Shooting: "They Want to Try To Blame People Who Are Irrelevant To This For Pure Political Reasons"


Wild Thing's comment........

This Sheriff is a real sickdo. He is creating his own personal WAR with many of the population of our country.
He is as nuts as the shooter only in a different way.

Wild Thing's comment........

Same crap he's spewing now in the middle of a murder investigation.

If he won’t enforce the law, he needs to quit. Simple as that.

If I lived in AZ., I would see about some kind of campaign to get a new Sheriff. This guy is unhinged.

DEMOCRATS Disrespect For Those Killed In AZ. They USE Them Now To Ready A Gun Control Bill and Bill Banning Free Speech

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson AP Photo

DEMOCRATS Rep.McCarthy (N.Y.) Readies Gun Control Bill and Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady Also Has Bill Banning Free Speech

McCarthy readies gun control bill


One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday targeting the high-capacity ammunition the gunman used.

McCarthy ran for Congress after her husband was gunned down and her son seriously injured in a shooting in 1993 on a Long Island commuter train.

“My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.

Gun control activists cried it was time to reform weapons laws in the United States, almost immediately after a gunman killed six and injured 14 more, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Arizona on Saturday.

Many said that people with a history of mental instability, like the alleged shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, should not be able to buy a gun — and no one should be able to buy stockpiles of ammunition used by the 22-year-old assailant.

McCarthy said she plans to confer with House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to see “if we can work something through” in the coming week.

McCarthy’s spokesman confirmed the legislation will target the high-capacity ammunition clips the Arizona gunman allegedly used in the shooting, but neither he or the congresswoman offered any further details.

“Again, we need to look at how this is going to work, to protect people, certainly citizens, and we have to look at what I can pass,” McCarthy said. “I don’t want to give the NRA – excuse the pun – the ammunition to come at me either.”


Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, told CNN that he also plans to take legislative action. He will introduce a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to use language or symbols that could be seen as threatening or violent against a federal official, including a member of Congress.

Another vocal supporter for gun control, Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley, told POLITICO that he hopes “something good” can come from the Arizona tragedy – perhaps discussion on a new assault weapon ban, sales at gun shows and tracing measures.


Wild Thing's comment.........

If McCarthy’s husband and some of the other passengers on the Long Island Railroad were armed, the Jamaican murderer would have been stopped in his tracks.

What terrible people they are....... exploiting somebody else’s misery for their own political gain. This left-wing anti-gun fanatic is nothing short of an opportunistic VULTURE, always ready to take advantage of a tragedy.

God help us if such legislation ever becomes law... it will quickly become a politically correct standard to QUELL FREE SPEECH ... Under such a law - citizens will be censored - any and all dissent will be interpreted as THREATENING ... and FREE POLITICAL SPEECH WILL DIE.

The Town Halls of 2008 would never again be seen - citizens in those town halls who spoke out vociferously would under such a law become Terrorists.

DEMOCRAT And Hate Monger Pima County Sheriff Dupnik Pushing His Agenda Of Hate Instead Of Being A Good Cop

Megyn Kelly confronts Sheriff Clarence Dupnik over his attempts to politicize the mass shooting in Arizona that left six people dead. Dupnik has been trying to link the shooting to “vitriol” coming from talk radio and “bigotry that goes on in this country.”


Arizona Sheriff’s News Conference No Place For Personal Political Opinion

By Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

In the midst of a local tragedy committed by a young man with some type of mental derangement, the Democrat Sheriff of Pima County in Tuscon hosted a news conference which violated the code of conduct of such informational sessions by repeatedly injecting his personal political views and opinions rather than sticking to the facts of the case. His comments are an insult to upstanding law-abiding citizens who support Arizona’s immigration law and Americans who find the secular progressive destruction of our Constitution outrageous. Every reasonable person knows the Arizona law was the consequence of willful failure of the Federal government to enforce federal immigration laws and secure our borders.

For Sheriff Dupnik---a Democrat who publicly opposed that law in a letter to the Wall Street Journal---to suggest this horrible criminal act may have resulted from an increase in “vitriolic language and hate speech heard on radio and some other media outlets” is synonymous with labeling anyone who opposes and speaks out against corrupt government as similar to the individual responsible for the crime which occurred in Tuscon.

The lame street media will certainly make a big deal about the murderer’s motives in an attempt to label “We the People” as of the same ilk because we speak out and protest against those elected officials who actively seek to destroy the foundations of the United States of America by distorting and trampling our Constitution. No such connection can be made, but the secular progressives will hammer that home nonstop for weeks to come until some other tragedy occurs to divert their attention.

There is also no doubt there will be a huge liberal media uproar about second amendment rights which in their minds (plagued by liberal mental disorder) should be revoked because of such incidents. They will ignore the fact that not one crime has been committed with a firearm by a U.S. citizen who has a legal permit to carry. The murderer in the Arizona incident like others in the past apparently did not have legal permit to carry and on top of that showed obvious derangement to commit such a heinous act of mass murder. His actions have nothing to do with second amendment rights nor can his actions be blamed on published or verbal media content which condemns the willful destruction of America by liberal extremist America haters. The Sheriff of Pima County has violated our expectation that he keep his personal secular progressive political views out of public presentations which should stay on point regarding details of the crime committed. May God’s hand be with those who lost their loved ones in this terrible tragedy and the recovery of the injured.


Wild Thing's comment.......

This VILE sheriff should be FIRED asap and never again be allowed to be in the Police Force. He is NOT doing his job, he could not wait to get his ugly face in front of a mic and spew his hate for the right, for Tea Party people.

What makes all of this even sadder then it already is, is that instead of being able to mourn those killed, to feel badly about what happened, all the attacks from the left are keeping EVERYONE from being able to let the process happen that needs to go on.

Excellent write up by Dr. Alan Bates.

DEMOCRATS Urge Obama to Pin Shooting on Tea Partiers

Dems Urge Obama to Pin Shooting on Tea Partiers

FOX News

The references to the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995 echoed in other ways. That horror, which killed 168 people including many children, helped then-President Bill Clinton stigmatize extreme anti-government rhetoric and re-energize his presidency at a time when Newt Gingrich and conservative Republicans were riding high in Congress.

One veteran Democratic operative, who blames overheated rhetoric for the shooting, said President Barack Obama should carefully but forcefully do what his predecessor did.

"They need to deftly pin this on the tea partiers," said the Democrat.

"Just like the Clinton White House deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people."

Another Democratic strategist said the similarity is that Tucson and Oklahoma City both “take place in a climate of bitter and virulent rhetoric against the government and Democrats.”

This Democrat said that the time had come to insist that Republicans stand up when, for example, a figure such as Fox News commentator Glenn Beck says something incendiary.

Some Republicans have scrambled to portray alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner as an unbalanced loner, and pointed to a high school classmate’s account that, four years ago, he had left-wing views. Democrats are framing his attack as the tragic-but-inevitable end result of a right-wing political culture that has become radicalized since President Obama’s election.

“Today we have seen the results” of “irresponsible and dangerous rhetoric,” former Democratic senator and presidential candidate Gary Hart wrote on Huffington Post. “Those with a megaphone, whether provided by public office or a media outlet, have responsibilities. They cannot avoid the consequences of their blatant efforts to inflame, anger, and outrage.” No politician – not even the most strident partisan on the left – is suggesting that any mainstream conservative feels anything but horror over the Tucson shootings. Yet assassinations are by definition a political act, and solo actors in the past have shaped American history on many occasions.

Wild Thing's comment........

Dems are beyond pathetic and beneath contempt for trying to use a tragedy that has nothing to do with politics on the tea party and Republicans to silence opposing voices.

The Media and Democrats Should Look At Their Very Own Obama For HIS HATE Speech and His Threats He Has Made On U.S. Citizens!!!! ~ Obama: "If They Bring a Knife to the Fight, We Bring a Gun"

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said in Philadelphia on June 13th 2008.

** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”

** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”

** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Punch Back Twice As Hard”

** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“

** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”

** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”

** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”

** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”

** “I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.”

** "Punish your enemies." Obama to Latino supporters.

** "I'm itching for a fight." Obama to Democrats in a speech. ~ Obama

** A Republican victory would mean hand to hand combat." Obama

Or John Kerry who said on the Bill Maher show: “I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone.”


"If They Bring a Knife to the Fight, We Bring a Gun"

from 2008

Wall Street Journal

Mobster wisdom tells us never to bring a knife to a gun fight. But what does political wisdom say about bringing a gun to a knife fight?

That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

The comment drew some laughs and applause. But it also struck a chord with his Republican rival. John McCain’s campaign immediately accused the Democratic candidate of playing the politics of fear. They also mentioned that Obama said he would use a gun that would be illegal under Obama’s plans to cut down on illegal firearms.

“Barack Obama’s call for ‘new politics’ is officially over. In just 24 hours, Barack Obama attacked one of America’s pioneering women CEOs, rejected a series of joint bipartisan town halls, and said that if there’s a political knife fight, he’d bring a gun."


Leftist Violence In America - A Long History

The hatred of the Left erupted yesterday when a left-wing kook murdered a federal judge and shot Congresswoman Giffords, and some other innocent Americans, killing 6 and wounding 12. In fact, AZ State Senator Linda Lopez on Fox News early on the 8th blamed the Tea Party even though the Daily KOS had Giffords on their site with a bulls eye on her, likely because she stood with AZ Governor Jan Brewer on immigration. So, the Left, it appears, needs a crash course on their violent past.

Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dorhn, of the Weather Underground, didn't think his group went far enough in committing violence against the government.

Communist and left wing extremist Van Jones, who resigned as Obama's Green Jobs Czar, now calls for violent revolution and now works for Media Matters.

And WHO can forget Obama's pastor of twenty years, Rev. Wright, who preaches black liberation racist theology and hatred of whites and America.

Trumpka of the AFL-CIO calls for violence to achieve "social justice."

Andy Stern, Obama's buddy, allowed his SEIU thugs to beat up a black conservative. The list goes on and every time a violent act happens in America, the Left rushes to judgement and tries to pin it on the Right. Why must they lie and use victims to score political points? To justify more oppression? To justify a reduction of our rights, i.e., freedom of speech, the right to keep and bear arms, the 4th AM versus the TSA and Janet Incompentano?

Let’s take a short look at the leftist violence in the United States.

1. It was Bill Maher who "joked" about Sarah Palin being the first of the useless people to be killed. That’s a real funny one Bill, almost as funny as your face.
2. Ed Schultz on PMSNBC has stated many times that Conservatives need to be killed.
3. SEIU beats down a black Conservative and an elderly Tea Party man.
4. Liberals want to kill Bush.
5. Vandals smashed a large glass door with a section of cinder block at the Republican Party headquarters in downtown Flagstaff.
6. Brownshirts for Kerry.
7. Leftist spits on Major Jerry Boyle, USMC Iraq War Vet and Congress candidate.
8. Joseph Stack crashes his plane into the Federal Building in Austin, TX.
9. Clay Duke walked into a Florida school board with a handgun, spray-painted a "V for Vendetta" (left-wing gang symbol) on the wall, and then tried to shoot the board members before shooting himself. (They tried to pin that one on the right as well.)
10. Norman Leboon (registered Democrat AND Obama donor) shot into Eric Cantor’s office in Virginia. He also wrote a Youtube video manifesto:

"My Congressman Eric Cantor, and you and your cupcake evil wife. Remember Eric, our judgment time, the final Yom Kippur has been given. You are a liar, you’re a Lucifer, you’re a pig, a greedy f*cking pig, you’re an abomination, you receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer’s abominations."

11. The Left embraces a film where Bush gets assassinated.
12. An anonymous liberal called Congresswoman Jean Schmitt and left the following message:

"Yeah, I'm glad the president passed health care. Yeah. Funky ass, racist-ass Republicans hate that, don't you? Jean Schmitt, when you got hit by that car, you should've broke your back, b*tch. And Boehner, motherf****r that Mitch McConnell. All you racist f**king Republicans. Why don't you just change your party name to racist? Cuz if one of those f**king Tea baggers had spit on me, I'd have shot all them in the f**king face with my f**king 9 millimeter. F**k all you racist motherf****rs."

But they have a history that goes back to the 60’s.

It was Hanoi John Fonda Kerry who was involved with the Winter Soldier program that worked on a plan to assassinate Congressman/Senators who they disliked for whatever reason.

"In 1971, the pro-Hanoi anti-war group that presidential candidate John Kerry was principal leader and spokesman of debated and voted down a plot to assassinate U.S. Senators who supported the Vietnam War. Numerous media outlets claim witnesses and FBI documents conclusively place Kerry at that November 1971 meeting of Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) in Kansas City."

That Kerry resigned immediately afterwards is not clear but what IS clear is that he never reported the plot to the police. He also lied to the Senate as he slimed American Vietnam Vets.

For example, Valerie Jarrett and Van Jones, both Obomunists, have openly called for violent revolution in America. Van Jones left the Obama Administration and now works for the Soros mouthpiece, that spreads Obama propaganda, Media Matters and Valerie Jarrett is still in this corrupt administration and has Obama's ear. Sidenote: Valerie Jarrett's father In-law was very involved with the CPUSA and worked with the radical commie pedophile and Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis.

1. Bill Ayer’s Weather Underground. Grew out of the SDS and Revolutionary Youth Movement (a faction of the SDS). Members included: Karen Ashley, Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, John Jacobs, Jeff Jones, Gerry Long, Howie Machtinger, Jim Mellen, Terry Robbins, Mark Rudd, and Steve Tappis. (Many now involved with the Democrat Party)

2. The Black Liberation Army (BLA) helped the WUO rob a Brink’s truck of $1.6 million. They murder a Brink’s guard and two police officers and wounded three others. The BLA is credited with murdering 13 police officers and over 60 acts of left-wing violence from 1970-1980.

3. M19CO was formed in the late 1970s. They had three objectives: to free political prisoners held in American prisons, to use appropriation of capitalist wealth to fund the third stage, and to initiate a series of bombings and terrorist attacks. They also freed JoAnne Chesimard who had murdered a state trooper.

The United Freedom Front: Responsible for 29 known robberies and bombings from October 4, 1975, to September 26, 1984. One of the members, Thomas Manning, was convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper.

More recently:

In 2009, the Left came through Pittsburgh, smashing windows, setting fire to public and private property, and injuring police officers.

The shootings at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum were committed by a left-wing nutjob by the name of James Von Brunn.

Union thugs harassed the 14 y.o. son of a BoA executive in his home as the police did nothing.

At the RNC in 2008, they attacked buses with Boy Scouts in them and tried to drop rocks, bricks, and sandbags on the buses, trying to kill the drivers AND sprayed Republican delegates with toxic materials.

At the John Liebowitz and Stevie Colbert rally, the Left trashed the mall AND the WW2 memorial.

Left-wing eco-terrorist groups like the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front have set to people’s homes and businesses on the West Coast since 1997. They have also burned down universities, car lots, government offices, ski resorts, and whaling vessels performing legal business on the high seas that the Discovery Channel sees fit to legitimize. (Sea Shepards)

Did WE on the Right erupt in violence when the Left took control of the House and Senate in 2007 and proceeded to run America into the ground? No. Did WE on the Right erupt in violence when the Left selected, what could possibly be an "illegal" president? No. We hold a rally on 8/28 and do it peacefully and cleanly. We vow to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign AND domestic, while the Left seeks to subvert it, bypass it, and shred it. So exactly WHO are the violent criminals in America? It appears that the Left, with people like Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dorhn, Rashid Khalidi (friend of Barry's), and all of the radical terrorists that comprise the coalition of the Left are the ones to blame. We on the Right want criminals PUNISHED, the Left wants them FREED, i.e. Abu Mumia, JoAnne Chesimard (BLA), William Morales(FMLN), Tookie, etc., often by violent means.


"My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks." Obama to CEOs.
"They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun"
"Get in Their Faces!" Obama to his doorknockers.
"I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!" Obama to ACORN crowd.
"Punch back twice as hard!" Obama to his Obomunists.
"We talk to these folks…so I know whose ass to kick." Obama to the Left on the private sector.
"A Republican victory would mean hand to hand combat." Obama to his Obomunists.
"It’s time to Fight for it." Obama in a speech to his supporters.
"Punish your enemies." Obama to Latino supporters.
"I'm itching for a fight." Obama to Democrats in a speech.

Is that what a President does? Incite violence among his base? The Left is far more responsible for the violence in this country than they have the guts to admit, heedless of what that asshat Olberdork mewls.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Two year old article, not current news, but VERY relevant to all the leftist mud slinging against the right. Personally, I don’t think Obama or Palin or anyone is to blame except the shooter himself.

But since the left is creating war on the Tea Parties, Palin, talk radio etc. then to be ' fair and balanced" they should also bring up the Communist Obama's quotes.

I DO think also that Obama's comments most certainly make him guilty of inciting others to more violence, an impeacheable offense.

Veterans Demand an Apology From VILE Person and LIAR Arizona Rep. Linda Lopez


Democrat Linda Lopez accuses Tea Party of stirring up people like Giffords shooter. Hardly a few hours went by after the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords yesterday when her fellow Democrats began to pounce on sketchy details for what they thought was political gain. Almost instantly after the shooting, Democrats (aided and abetted by the liberal media) began to politicize the crime by inventing the slanderous narrative that Tea Party members (read: patriots) were somehow to blame for Jared Loughner’s murder spree. The woman who may have started it all was Democrat State Senator Linda Lopez, a friend of Giffords. On a phone interview in a TV appearance, she was supposed to talk about her dear friend, but she quickly took the opportunity to attack her political enemies instead.

Veterans Demand an Apology From Arizona Rep. Linda Lopez

Big Government

Yesterday Arizona state Rep. Linda Lopez was on FOX News and blamed tea partiers for the attack at the Safeway. Of course, she had no evidence of this. Rep. Lopez also suggested that Loughner was an Afghan veteran.

While listening and watching all of the activity and coverage of this horrific event, one thing has become even more clear- the MFM has come unglued on the Right, on Veterans, and on grass roots organizations. This vitriol has GOT to stop, in both directions. But blaming Veterans just because it involved a gun is over the top. Especially for someone who should know better than to spread rumors.

The topper statement is from State Congressional Representative Linda Lopez, who is about as far-Left as you can get. Not that that’s a particular issue, but, given her next statement, we’ve got a HUGE problem …

”the shooter is likely, from what I’ve heard, an Afghan vet..”

Ms Lopez, on behalf of ALL veterans, and especially the Afghanistan veterans you have repeatedly defaced, I would like to ask this-


Your demented, irrational view of veterans shows in this despicable statement. You have, as most do on the extreme Left and within the MFM, caused irreparable damage to veterans everywhere- not just those in Arizona. You do a complete disservice to us, to your country, and to your state by repeatedly asserting that there was a likelyhood he was an Afghanistan veteran.

Granted, in the heat of the moment, things can be said that are ‘caustic’, but this goes beyond anything that was said all day (EXCEPT that Rep. Giffords was ‘dead’) and does a greater disservice to your party.

If you are not willing to issue a retraction, and apology, then I am asking those in Arizona to look at censuring and/or recalling someone who would put forth such discpicable accusations without cause nor merit. What caused you to even think that this person was associated in any way with the military?

He had a gun?

He was male?

He was WHITE?

Loughner was turned down by the Army (as stated by both CNN and to posted by Stars and Stripes) for ‘instability issues’. Just because someone used a gun in a despicable act, you want to throw it on the ‘veterans as victims’ pile.

What if one of Breitbart’s contributors had posted that they thought that, since a white Congresswoman was attacked, that the shooter was likely Hispanic/Latino, or Black? Who’s head would be rolling in the gutter then? The shrieking would go on for months.


Wild Thing's comment........

They announced over and over and over that the shooter was NOT a Vet, nor in any service, that he was rejected by the US Army in fact. And this BITCH knows it and still went on and on saying this. Sorry about my language but I swear these lefties have pushed me over the edge in their hate and I have had it with all of them.

We know she won't give and apology, but she should!

The Left Is Totally Out Of Control They Are Too Filled With Hate So They Blame Innocent People For AZ. Killer

Pima County AZ Sheriff Clarence Dupnik blamed the “prejudice and vitriol” in Arizona for the shooting

“But again I’d just like to say that when you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain people’s mouths about tearing down the government, the anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous. And, unfortunately, Arizona I believe has become sort of the capital. We have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry.”


Geraldo Goes Out of His Way to Connect Tea Party With Tuscon Shooting


CNN on AZ Massacre: Palin "Allowed This Kind Of Instance To Happen"


Olbermann Blames Palin, Allen West, Tea Party, Beck & O’Reilly for Shootings Today By Marx-Supporting Liberal Lunatic ....he does NOT mention the violence those on the left have done.


* Arizona State Senator Linda Lopez blamed tea party patriots. It only took her about 2 hours after the shooting for this woman to make this statement.

* Leading leftist blogs Daily Kos (Markos Moulitsas) and Crooks and Liars blamed Sarah Palin.

* Jane Fonda blamed Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck..

* N.O.W. ( you know those men hating, hairy lipped women) is blaming Conservatives for the shooting.

The president of the top pro-abortion lobby group National Organization for Women went so far as to openly blame “extreme right-wing opponents” hours after the shooting, chastising Republican leaders and calling for a Justice Department investigation “to the fullest extent of federal anti-terrorist legislation” to determine whether the shooting was “part of a conspiracy.”

“Conservatives cannot have it both ways, screaming sexist, racist and homophobic slurs at legislators as they vote for health care reform, putting legislators on a violence-inciting ‘Targets’ list, and then simply saying how sorry they are when someone explodes into murder,” declared NOW president Terry O’Neill in a statement emailed to supporters.


Wild Thing's comment........

This is the same sheriff who vowed not to enforce Arizona’s new immigration law. Also this was done by a white person on other whites. And for him to exploit this killing like he is imo is unforgivable. sheesh.

As you follow this story throughout the week, note how many times the media refer to the killer as "the gunman."

The violent rhetoric the citiznes of our country have heard comes from Obama and his many threats. The if they bring a gun we bring a knife comments , telling his voters to get in our faces comments he has made and the many other things he has said to promote violence.

All of these lefties doing this are wolves waiting for one incident that they can use to silence those they cannot debate!!!!

Authorities Suspect Gunman in Arizona Rampage Posted Pre-Shooting Video Online

FOX News

Jared Loughner, the 22-year-old man who sources identify to Fox News as the gunman in custody in the deadly shooting rampage Saturday in Arizona, is suspected of posting a series of YouTube videos that show a focus on literacy and currency -- as well as his distrust in the government.

"Hello, my name is Jared Lee Loughner," one of the videos says, in words appearing on the screen. "This video is my introduction to you! My favorite activity is conscience dreaming; the greatest inspiration for my political business information. Some of you don't dream - sadly."

The video, posted Dec. 15, later turns more political.

"The majority of citizens in the united states of America have never read the united states of America's constitution. You don't have to accept the federalist laws," the video's titles say. "In conclusion, reading the second United States constitution, I can't trust the current government because of the ratifications: the government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar. No! I won't pay debt with a currency that's not backed by gold and silver! No! I won't trust in god!"

Records obtained from the Pima County, Ariz. criminal database show Loughner was arrested in 2007 for possessing drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor charge. The records suggest that Loughner paid a $20 fee and completed a court-ordered program for drug offenders.

Three months later he was cited for running a stop sign, according to court documents.

Another record shows a 2008 arrest for what’s described as a “local charge” in Marana, Ariz., 20 miles northwest of Tucson. The non-criminal charge was dismissed.

Loughner's page on YouTube lists Tucson as his hometown. He also said he attended Northwest Aztec College and Pima County Community College. And in one of the videos, he says he is a military recruit.

The Army provided this statement:

"The Army has confirmed that the suspect was never in the Army. He attempted to enlist in the Army but was rejected for service. In accordance with the Privacy Act, we will not discuss why he was rejected."

In other videos, Loughner calls the people of District 8, his Ariz. district, illiterate.

In a bizarre equation that Loughner appears to mean as example of deductive reasoning, he concludes that "the police are unconstitutional."

In yet another rant verging on the paranoid, he says:

“I know who’s listening: Government Officials, and the People. Nearly all the people, who don’t know this accurate information of a new currency, aren’t aware of mind control and brainwash methods. If I have my civil rights, then this message wouldn’t have happen.”

He lists reading under interests, as well as "conscience dreams," and among his favorite books are "Mein Kampf," the "Communist Manifesto," "Animal Farm" and "Brave New World."

In a comment posted on MySpace three months ago in connection with a video about Pima Community College, Loughner wrote: "Hello, I know you’re illiterate! This is the greatest protest for exposure into a wrongful act. The school is breaking the constitution. If you watch the video then you’ll understand. The teachers are taking advantage of you in the first and Fifth Amendment. The United States Constitution, which is the law, can be broken at this school. Thank you and goodnight! Jared"

His last writing on his MySpace page just hours before the shooting was "Goodbye friends."

How horrible , prayers that no one else will die and they will recover.

This is heartbreaking.

AZ. Daily Reporter

Greg Segalini, an uncle of Christina, the 9-year-old victim, told the Arizona Republic that a neighbor was going to the event and invited her along because she had just been elected to the student council and was interested in government.
Christina, who was born on Sept. 11, 2001, was involved in many activities, from ballet to baseball. She had just received her first Holy Communion at St. Odilia's Catholic Church on in Tucson, Catholic Diocese of Tucson officials told The Arizona Daily Star.

And from a friend of mine on Facebook that lives in AZ and near where the shootings occured.

"Christina had been taken to this event by a neighbor specifically to meet Gabby; she had just been elected to her 3rd grade student council. "

House Takes First Step Toward Health Care (socialized medicine) Repeal In 236-181 Vote

Cantor: Despite claims of reducing deficits and saving taxpayer dollars, the new law is riddled with budget gimmicks that double count savings, offset 6 years of benefits with 10 years of tax increases and rely on cuts to Medicare and tax increases to fund the new entitlement.

On the debt: "Our surging debt burden hangs over the economy like a dark cloud waiting to unleash a storm of inflation, higher taxes and higher borrowing costs upon businesses and families"


House takes first step toward health care repeal

The language:

“Providing for consideration of H.R. 2, to repeal the job-killing health care law and health care-related provisions in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010; and providing for consideration of H.Res. 9, instructing certain committees to report legislation replacing the job-killing health care law”

The Washington Times

Confronting President Obama, the new Republican-led House took a first step Friday toward a symbolic vote to repeal his landmark health care overhaul law, which would provide coverage to more than 30 million Americans without health insurance.

But the 236-181 largely party-line vote is unlikely to amount to more than a political message, since Democrats who still run the Senate have promised to block efforts to scrap the law and Obama has veto power.

Both sides are preparing for a standoff. They will probably take the big issues in the health care debate back to the voters in 2012, when Obama is expected to run for re-election and the House and Senate are up for grabs again.

The House action set the rules for a debate next week that will culminate in a simple for-or-against vote on repeal, scheduled for Wednesday.

"Today we are taking the first step in fulfilling a key promise to the American people," said Rep. David Dreier, a Republican who led his party's side in the debate. "We are setting in motion a process to repeal President Obama's job-killing health care bill and replace it with real solutions."


Wild Thing's comment........

Yes, yess, yesss....... another good start.

In 2010, the Democrats passed ObamaCare by a 7 vote margin. In 2011, the Republicans passed the bill to repeal ObamaCare with a 55 vote margin.

Here are the ROLL Call votes.

Notice how the MSM article is describing the repeal vote as “party line.” But when the Democrats controlled the House, there was no such reference.

BREAKING : CBO Says Repealing ObamaCare (socialized medicine) Would Reduce Net Spending by $540 Billion

BREAKING : CBO Says Repealing ObamaCare Would Reduce Net Spending by $540 Billion

American Spectator

The Congressional Budget Office, in an email to Capitol Hill staffers obtained by the Spectator, has said that repealing the national health care law would reduce net spending by $540 billion in the ten year period from 2012 through 2021. That number represents the cost of the new provisions, minus Medicare cuts.

Repealing the bill would also eliminate $770 billion in taxes. It's the tax hikes in the health care law (along with the Medicare cuts) which accounts for the $230 billion in deficit reduction.

Full email, from Edward "Sandy" Davis, CBO's Associate Director for Legislative Affairs, below.

To interested Hill staff:

CBO and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) have not yet developed a detailed estimate of the budgetary impact of H.R. 2, the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act, which would repeal the major health care legislation enacted in March 2010. Yesterday, we released a preliminary analysis of that legislation indicating that, over the 2012-2021 period, the effect of enacting H.R. 2 on the federal budget as a result of changes in direct spending and revenues is likely to be an increase in deficits in the vicinity of $230 billion, plus or minus the effects of forthcoming technical and economic changes to CBO’s and JCT’s projections for that period.

We have been asked to provide the revenue and direct spending components of that total. Extrapolating the estimated budgetary effects of the original health care legislation and accounting for the effects of subsequent legislation, CBO anticipates that enacting H.R. 2 would probably yield, for the 2012-2021 period, a reduction in revenues in the neighborhood of $770 billion and a reduction in outlays in the vicinity of $540 billion, plus or minus the effects of forthcoming technical and economic changes to CBO’s and JCT’s projections.

CBO will post a Director’s blog with this information on the CBO website shortly. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Of course we’ll see this news on ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN in about........( tick tock tick tock ) ......?


hmmmmm, Now will we hear all the Socialists who insisted the CBO was non partisan to now say the CBO is partisan.

We can also look at Romneycare in Massachusetts. It’s driving the state bankrupt.

Obamacare a ticking time bomb that will explode in our faces and bankrupt the nation while at the same time destroying the best health care in the world.

Obama's State Dept.: Get Ready For Gender-Neutral Passports

Get Ready For Gender-Neutral Passports

'Mother,' 'Father' Changing to 'Parent One,' 'Parent Two' on Passport Applications

FOX News Radio

The words “mother” and “father” will be removed from U.S. passport applications and replaced with gender neutral terminology, according to the State Dept.

“The words in the old form were ‘mother’ and ‘father’,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Passport Services Brenda Sprague. “They are now ‘parent one’ and ‘parent two.’”

A statement on the State Department website noted: “These improvements are being made to provide a gender neutral description of a child’s parents and in recognition of different types of families.”

Sprauge said the decision to remove the traditional parenting names was not an act of political correctness.

“We find that with changes in medical science and reproductive technology that we are confronting situations now that we would not have anticipated 10 or 15 years ago,” she said.

Gay rights groups are hailing the decision.

“Changing the term mother and father to the more global term of parent allows many different types of families to be able to go and apply for a passport for their child without feeling like the government doesn’t recognize their family,” said Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of Family Equality Council.

Her organization lobbied the government for several years to remove the words from passport applications.

Our government needs to recognize that the family structure is changing,” Chrisler said. “The best thing that we can do is support people who are raising kids in loving, stable families.”

But some conservative Christians are outraged over the decision.

“Only in the topsy-turvy world of left-wing political correctness could it be considered an ‘improvement’ for a birth-related document to provide less information about the circumstances of that birth,” Family Research Council president Tony Perkins wrote in a statement to Fox News Radio. “This is clearly designed to advance the causes of same-sex ‘marriage’ and homosexual parenting without statutory authority, and violates the spirit if not the letter of the Defense of Marriage Act.”

Robert Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, agreed.

“It’s part of an overall attempt at political correctness to diminish the distinction between men and women and to somehow suggest you don’t need both a father and a mother to raise a child successfully,” said Jeffress. “(This decision) was made to make homosexual couples feel more comfortable in rearing children.”

Wild Thing's comment.........

Changing the term mother and father to the more global term of parent allows many different types of families to be able to go and apply for a passport for their child without feeling like the government doesn’t recognize their family,” said Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of Family Equality Council.

So I looked up the "Family Equality Council" :

Jennifer Chrisler is the Executive Director of Family Equality Council (formerly Family Pride Coalition), the national LGBT families. Formerly Chrisler was an assistant to her current partner, former MA state Senator Cheryl Jacques, and she was at the center of a controversy after receiving very large pay raises by Jacques.[1] Jennifer holds a BA degree from Smith College[1][dead link] and resides in Newton, MA with her partner, Cheryl Jacques and their twin sons, Timmy and Tommy.

Gays make up approximately 1.5% of the population. So why are they calling all the shots?

This is very much is intentional conditioning so that young children will have husband/wife paradigm erased from their worldview. It is why textbooks put in partner, rather than spouse—to erase the idea that marriage is better. It is to prepare children to have no special biological loyalty and accept ABNORMAL as normal....Marxists hate it when people aren’t loyal to the whole collective instead of dedicated to a few. They work for groupthink.

Are we going to have to change the holidays to “Parent 1 Day” and “Parent 2 Day”?

Rep. Mike Pence Introduces Anti-abortion Bill

Pence introduces anti-abortion bill ahead of conservative gathering


Rep. Mike Pence, the Indiana congressman who is considering a presidential bid, introduced an anti-abortion bill Friday that is certain to be greeted fondly by many Republicans ahead of his attendance at a conservative gathering in South Carolina this weekend.

The measure, which has 122 cosponsors and is called the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, seeks to ban federal funding to organizations that perform abortions.

A version of the measure was first introduced two years ago.

“It is morally wrong to end an unborn human life by abortion,” Pence said in a statement. “It is also morally wrong to take the taxpayer dollars of millions of pro-life Americans and use them to promote abortion at home or abroad.”

Pence added the bill “will ensure that abortion providers are not being subsidized with federal tax dollars.”


Wild Thing's comment.......

Good for Mike Pence!!!! Thank you sir!

NO taxpayer money should EVER be used to fund the Sanger/Hitler Abortion policies.

Mike Pence is also the person that led the way on trying to get Obama and the left to drill for oil domestically.

IMO abortion should never be paid for with our tax dollars. That is also one of the things I so hate about Obamacare and his strong agenda toward abortion.

Reporter to Obama: What do You Think of Today’s Employment Report? Obama: “Talk to My Economic Advisor, That’s His Job”


After reading his prepared remarks on the economy at a window manufacturer on Friday, Obama sought to take some photos with workers when a pool reporter caught up with him and asked him to explain the connection between the drop in the unemployment rate and the lower-than-expected number of jobs added in December.

Obama’s response, according to the pool:

“You know, you’ve got to talk to Austan Goolsbee. That’s his job.”

Obama then posed for some photos.

Republicans Introduce Bill To Eliminate Presidential 'czars'

Republicans introduce bill to eliminate presidential 'czars'

The Hill

A group of House Republicans introduced a bill on Wednesday to rein in the various "czars" in the Obama administration.

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and 28 other House Republicans introduced legislation to do away with the informal, paid advisers President Obama has employed over the past two years.

The legislation, which was introduced in the last Congress but was not allowed to advance under Democratic control, would do away with the 39 czars Obama has employed during his administration.

The bill defines a czar as "a head of any task force, council, policy office within the Executive Office of the President, or similar office established by or at the direction of the President" who is appointed to a position that would otherwise require Senate confirmation.

Republicans had complained about the president's use of czars to help advance his agenda in Congress. In particular, the GOP had harped about the personal history of Van Jones, the president's czar for "green jobs," over past comments Jones had made about Fox News came to light. Jones eventually resigned.

Another prominent czar over the past year was Carol Browner, the president's energy and environmental adviser. She helped head up efforts in response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, and the ultimately unsuccessful effort for an energy and climate bill from Congress.

Republicans introduced several bills to eliminate czars in the last Congress, but similar legislation could conceivably advance in the House now that the GOP controls the chamber.

"We haven’t gotten an indication of an exact timeline for committee action, considering that the bill was just filed yesterday," said Scalise spokesman Stephen Bell. "We hope to have this discussion in the near future as the congressman works to pursue all the bills he has introduced in the 112th Congress."


Wild Thing's comment........

GOOD, GREAT! Beautiful. And the Republicans can claim this as a cost cutting measure. I’d like the see the RATS try and defend these Czars. That will be interesting.

Keep it up, 112th! Even if it gets nowhere, you can at least help us have something to smile about once in awhile for the next 2 years. This is a great one! And, as Rush has suggested, introduce a new bill to repeal Obamacare every week. Keep the ‘Rats so busy playing defense that they can’t inflict as much harm during this session.

We must all remember too, to give them the kudos and continued encouragement. It is up to us to cheer them on and let them know that we appreciate everything they’re doing. We need to write, call, e-mail our kudos and agreement every time they do us proud. That will go a long way to build up their resolve and keep them on the right track. It’s going to be mind-boggling what the MSM and the Democrats are going to throw at these people. They need encouragement daily!!!!

Say goodbye...........

Source of information below.......

Obama has moved swiftly to concentrate power in the White House, bypassing the review of our elected representatives in Congress in most of the posts listed above. Even though cabinet positions are part of the executive branch, the cabinet secretaries must be approved by Congress, they are funded by Congress, and they can be called before Congress to testify. Most of these czars, on the other hand, are appointed by Obama at his sole discretion, and are answerable only to him. If subpoenaed by Congress, they can claim executive privilege.

EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Lamar Smith Issues First DOJ Oversight Letter

EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Lamar Smith issues first DOJ oversight letter

The Washington Post

Right Turn sectrioin
By Jennifer Rubin

Right Turn has obtained the first oversight letter from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) issued to the Justice Department. While he was in the minority, Smith labored, largely unsuccessfully, on the committee to convince the Democratic chairman to investigate a range of issues, including detainee policy and New Black Panther Party case. He now has the authority to schedule hearings, call witnesses and subpoena documents.

In a five-page letter, Smith notes that there has been "little oversight" as to how the civil rights division has used its budget increases ($22 million in FYI 2010 and $17 million requested in FYI 2011) and why the need for some 164 new positions.

He then gets to the heart of the matter. As I and other outlets have reported, he notes that in the New Black Panther Party case investigation, it came to light that a political appointee, Julie Fernandes, directed Justice Department attorneys "not to bring cases against black defendants for the benefit of white victims."

Smith then details allegations by former Justice Department attorney J. Christian Adams that the department declined to enforce the National Voter Registration Act and its provisions relating to "voter integrity."

After reciting the evidence concerning Fernandes's statements and her expressed hostility toward enforcing the NVRA, Smith concludes:

"Allegations that the Civil Rights Division has engaged in a practice of race-biased enforcement of voting rights law must be investigated by the Committee." He then gives Holder until January 21 to respond to a list of questions, including whether Fernandes did, in fact, "explicitly or implicitly direct Voting Section staff not to enforce any section of any federal rights statute" or "not to enforce Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act." He demands all documents that relate to the department's enforcement practices under the Voting Rights Act.

The letter is noteworthy on a number of levels.

First, administration flacks and liberal bloggers have insisted that the New Black Panther Party case is much to do about nothing. But as Smith has correctly discerned, the issue of enforcement or non-enforcement of civil rights laws based on a non-colorblind view of those laws is serious and a potentially explosive issue for this administration.

Second, Holder's strategy of stonewalling during the first two years of Obama's term may have backfired. Had he been forthcoming while Democrats were in the majority, he might have been able to soften the blows; Smith is not about to pull his punches.

And finally, Smith is demonstrating the sort of restraint and big-picture focus that is essential for the Republicans if they are to remain credible and demonstrate their capacity for governance.


That took less than 24 hours. Jennifer Rubin has the exclusive news at the Washington Post. Lamar Smith is demanding answers. The speed in which this demand came out of the New Congress sends a message.

UPDATE TWO: A further review of Chairman Smith's letter reveals that Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes is also on Smith's radar. It is clear that she is now in the cross-hairs of the House Judiciary Committee, and that is a very unwelcome place to be in Washington D.C. One saw how Democrats running the House and Senate Judiciary Committee handled the DOJ in 2006-2008. Fernandes is the one who refuses to enforce Section 8 of Motor Voter to remove ineligible voters from the rolls.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Heck Yesssssss ! Yahoooooooo!

It's good to read the news today.

Can't wait to see DOJ officials in front of committee under oath. This should be interesting. The issue of whether the Black Panther case should have been prosecuted is obvious to the seeing person.

House Republican Introduces Bill to Block FCC’s ‘Internet Grab’

House Republican Introduces Bill to Block FCC’s ‘Internet Grab’

Rep. Marsha Blackburn introduced legislation Wednesday to deny the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulatory oversight over the Internet, which the Tennessee Republican insisted was the “sole prerogative of Congress” to administer.

“I agree that the Internet faces a number of challenge, ” Blackburn said in a release. “Only Congress can address those challenges without compounding them. Until we do, the FCC and other federal bureaucracies should keep their hands off the ‘net.”

According to Rep. Blackburn’s office, the “Internet Freedom Act” has the support of more than 60 House members, including a majority of GOP’ers on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The legislation already has bipartisan support, counting among its endorsers Blue Dog Democrat Dan Boren of Oklahoma.

“The only sector of our economy showing growth is online,” Blackburn said. “In these times, for an unelected bureaucracy with dubious jurisdiction and misplaced motives to unilaterally regulate that growth is intolerable.”

But Blackburn, who filed similar legislation in 2009, said:

"the measure is an “intermediate step” to counter the FCC’s recent adoption of Net neutrality rules. By way of a more immediate enforcement countermeasure, her office says she supports invoking the Congressional Review Act, which empowers legislators to invalidate noxious regulatory frameworks developed by federal agencies.

Wild Thing's comment........

This is great! Each step they take some small some will be huge will have an effect. Keep up the momentum and we will keep supporting you.

The left took 60 years to make it possible to seat a Usurping Marxist as president. The damage will not be corrected over night. Therefore every opportunity must be taken to provoke public discussion and debate.

Our crusade is eminently doable because conservatives can say unabashedly what we believe in and why. The left on the other hand must lie, cheat, steal and trick or murder its way into power.

Obama: Gibbs’ $172,200 Salary Is “Relatively Modest Pay”

Obama: Gibbs’ $172,200 Salary Is “Relatively Modest Pay”

Barack Obama told reporters yesterday that Press Secretary Robert Gibbs’ $172,200 salary was “relatively modest pay.”

FOX Nation

Perhaps it was the long flight back from Hawaii. But President Obama’s first full day back on the job suggested a slight case of tone deafness.

In bidding a sort-of farewell to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, he noted the “relatively modest pay” for which Gibbs has labored.

In fact, he earns $172,200 in a nation where the average family income hovers around $55,000, unemployment is high, record foreclosures persist and wages for most folks are at best stagnant.

Wild Thing's comment........

What a stupipd thing for Obama to say. To refer to it as "modest pay", speaks volumes once again about how much obama has no clue how to lead a Nation. To say what Gibbs makes is one thing, we all should be able to know that, that is not the problem. But the WAY Obama stated it, that is a problem he is totally out of touch with America.

It continues to shock me, I just can't help being shocked, at the careless way Obama and his wife are about their image in their position, the words they use with (his) threats etc. The way they have treated heads of State and the list could go on and on what they have done to disrepect the office Obama holds.

The pro football playoffs begin this weekend, but Fox Sports is already making sure there’ll be solid television ratings no matter what teams makes it to the Super Bowl on Feb. 6.

That’s because conservative Fox News talk show host Bill O’Reilly will be interviewing President Obama during the pre-game show, the White House confirmed yesterday.

When it broadcast the games in Obama’s first two years in office, NBC had hosts Matt Lauer (2009) and Katie Couric (2010) do the pre-game chats.

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan: Nation Must See Stark Choice Between "Ruin" and "Exceptionalism" by 2012

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan in an interview with Paul Gigot at the National Press Club that Republicans must find a way to set before the nation by 2012 the stark choice between the path we are on – “Debt Ruin” – and the better way of “American Exceptionalism.”

Wild Thing's comment........

Ryan is correct and there is such a huge difference. The left has real trouble with the idea that we are a uniquely blessed as a country. I think more now then in the last two years are waking up and realizing this and will fight to preserve those things . The Left consists of those who want government dependency more than freedom and those wanting to provide government co-dependency who love power more than a free society.

God Bless You Speaker Boehner

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi delivering her seemingly never-ending exit speech as she prepared to hand the gavel over to new House Speaker John Boehner. Pelosi seemed to use her remarks to boast about what she considered her accomplishments, sounding much more like a campaign speech than a graceful stepping aside. Eventually, she got around to John Boehner, praising him as a “skilled legislator” and a servant of the people, and then handed him the gavel as Speaker of the House.

There was visible tension in the GOP section of the floor when Pelosi read out a litany of the bills passed by the 111th Congress...even a few soft goans.

Almost no Republicans applauded when Pelosi mentioned the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. There was a lot of smiling-through-annoyance, and a slightly smaller level of document-checking and cell phone-checking.



House Speaker John Boehner receiving the gavel from Nancy Pelosi, and then delivering his remarks on assuming leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Boehner promised more openness, saying all bills will be posted online for three days for Americans will have a chance to read them before they are voted on, and he said there will be renewed focus on doing the “People’s business.” “It’s not about us,” Boehner said.


Wild Thing's comment........

I thought she would never shut up AUGH! She will be known in history as the worst Speaker of the House our country has ever had. No one ever did what she has done with turning the lights off on everyone, locking the door and not allowing the Republicans in and putting security guards at that door to make sure they did not get in. I will never forget that video Eric Cantor made that day that I posted here. He did it to show proof of how they were locked out.

The 112th was sent to save our Republic, they will need our prayers as they will be attacked big time by the media and the democrats. 2010 was only the beginning. 20 years of “Patriot focused” elections will get the train back on track.

Democrat Rep.Jerrold Nadler: GOP Reading Constitution “ritualistic reading” on the floor “total nonsense” and “propaganda”

Reading between Constitution's lines

The Washington Post

Dem Rep. Jerrold Nadler: GOP Treating Constitution Like It’s a “Sacred Text,” Reading it is “Total Nonsense” and “Propaganda"

And the Founders said: Let there be a constitution. And the Founders looked at the articles and clauses and saw that it was good.

For more than 200 years, Americans have revered the Constitution as the law of the land, but the GOP and tea party heralding of the document in recent months – and the planned recitation on the House floor Thursday – have caused some Democrats to worry that the charter is being misconstrued as the immutable word of God.

“They are reading it like a sacred text,” said Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the outgoing chairman of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution, civil rights and civil liberties, who has studied and memorized the Constitution with talmudic intensity.

Nadler called the “ritualistic reading” on the floor “total nonsense” and “propaganda” intended to claim the document for Republicans. “You read the Torah, you read the Bible, you build a worship service around it,” said Nadler, who argued that the Founders were not “demigods” and that the document’s need for amendments to abolish slavery and other injustices showed it was “highly imperfect.”

“You are not supposed to worship your constitution. You are supposed to govern your government by it,” he said.

But exalting the Constitution is hardly new. Constitutional scholars and historians say the document has occupied a nearly spiritual sphere for Americans practically since its ratification.

It has an immediate and obvious parallel to how you interpret the Bible," said Noah Feldman, a law professor and constitutional scholar at Harvard.

"The Constitution is seen as both the source and the product of God's blessing on the United States," said John Green, a University of Akron political scientist and adviser to the Pew Forum's surveys on religion in politics. "Reading and invoking the Constitution is part of a public ritual that makes up the civil religion."

In his first presidential inaugural address, George Washington divined the invisible hand of providence in the nation's creation, a pervasive belief, Green said, that imbued the Constitution with a "quasi-scriptural" quality. The perceived majesty of the document has waxed and waned over time, but after a sweeping Republican Party victory in the November midterms, it is conservative and tea party members who are most vocal in extolling its restorative powers.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), a frequent exalter of the Constitution, said Thursday's reading is a logical reaction to a campaign that was explicitly run on its principles. She said she believes the Constitution is a guide to paring down expansive government powers. "The words of the Constitution mean what they say they mean," she said. She described the Constitution as "the organic, original document" that "gives life to a nation."

"It's not on the same level as a sacred text that God would hand down to the faithful," said Bachmann, specifying the the document was "secular" and intended to provide parameters for the branches of government. But, she added, religious inspiration had a role in the document's drafting. "Those who wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were themselves devout individuals - primarily in their Christian faith," she said, arguing that the product was "reflective of their sincerely held beliefs."

Suspicious and mocking as Nadler was of the Republicans' motivation for reading aloud what he affectionately characterized as "a long, dry, boring document with details about how Congress will have power to lay imposts and taxes".


GOP-Controlled House to Kick Off New Session by Reading Constitution Aloud

FOX News

Though it has been inserted as text into the Congressional Record before, the supreme law of the land has never been read aloud before in the body known as "the People's House."

The man responsible for the exercise, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., says it's more than just a simple civics lesson.

"This is a very symbolic showing to the American people," said Goodlatte, "and it's a powerful message to members of Congress. We are a nation of laws, not of men."

Boehner will begin Thursday by reading the Constitution’s preamble: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., will follow suit with Article 1, Section 1, which states that Congress will have a Senate and a House of Representatives. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., then reads Article 1, Section 2. Members will continue on until they have read the entire Constitution and its amendments. They will not get to choose which section they read.

Goodlatte expects the proceeding to take 90 minutes. They will use one copy of the document to do the entire reading, and will pass it between members.

The emphasis on the Constitution won't end with the reading of the document. The House on Wednesday approved a package of rules for the 112th Congress, put forward by Cantor, that includes a provision mandating that all bills cite their constitutional authority.


Wild Thing's comment........

Finally, now the Dems will know what's in it! The tiny minority that do know what's in it should hang their heads in shame. The 110th Congress DID by and large make a total mockery of the Constitution, led by obama who has openly stated his disdain and ire toward our Consitition.

Regarding Nadler and the other liberals not liking this, they are exposing their utter hatred of America at every turn. Americans will vote accordingly.

Obama Gets Caught Adding Death Panels Then Changes His Mind And Maybe Won't Use Them

U.S. Alters Rule on Paying for End-of-Life Planning

New York Times

The Obama administration, reversing course, will revise a Medicare regulation to delete references to end-of-life planning as part of the annual physical examinations covered under the new health care law, administration officials said Tuesday.

The move is an abrupt shift, coming just days after the new policy took effect on Jan. 1.

Many doctors and providers of hospice care had praised the regulation, which listed “advance care planning” as one of the services that could be offered in the “annual wellness visit” for Medicare beneficiaries.

While administration officials cited procedural reasons for changing the rule, it was clear that political concerns were also a factor. The renewed debate over advance care planning threatened to become a distraction to administration officials who were gearing up to defend the health law against attack by the new Republican majority in the House.

Stenny Hoyer: Tea Party People Come From Unhappy Families ~ LOL Too Funny!

Hoyer: Tea Party People Come From Unhappy Families

On the eve of his demotion by voters from House Majority Leader to House Minority Whip, Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., Hoyer offered this insight into the psychology of the Tea Party movement:

There are a whole lot of people in the Tea Party that I see in these polls who don’t want any compromise. My presumption is they have unhappy families. All of you have been in families: single-parent, two-parents, whatever. Multiple parent and a stepfather. The fact is life is about trying to reach accommodation with one another so we can move forward. That is certainly what democracy is about. So if we are going to move forward compromise is necessary.

So, there you have it. The Tea Party movement is not motivated by, as its members claim, record-high levels of spending and debt by the federal government and the possible economic consequences of that. It is not upset by the various federal bailouts of recent years. It is not riled up by a stagnant economy with 9.8% unemployment. No, they go to rallies because it is easier than going home apparently.

Now, Hoyer may have been making a joke. It wasn’t entirely clear from the way he said it, though, and no reporter in the room laughed.

Still, at least Hoyer recognizes that the Tea Party movement includes real people, unlike House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. She has insisted that the movement is “astroturf” and doesn’t really exist.


Hoyer Blames Reagan and Bushes for Deficits, Says Policies Did Nothing to Grow Economy

In his last day as House Majority Leader, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) put much of the blame for America’s growing debt on past Republican administrations, including former President Ronald Reagan.

“Ronald Reagan came in and adopted an economic program that created $1.4 trillion in deficits over the next eight years,” Hoyer said in a Capitol Hill press conference on Tuesday, where he appeared with other members of the Democratic House Leadership.

“George Bush continued those policies and added another trillion dollars to the deficit," said Hoyer. "Bill Clinton came in 1993 and we adopted a PAY-GO (pay as you go) process.”

Hoyer warned that new rules that will be adopted by the incoming Republican majority in the House of Representatives will lead to an increase in the federal deficit. (The new Congress is scheduled to be sworn-in today, Jan. 5.)

Hoyer went on to say that the policies of Ronald Reagan not only increased the deficit, but also did nothing to grow the economy and were responsible for the recent economic downturn.


Wild Thing's comment........

Insanities tumble from his lips as do acorns from oaks. A year or so ago he assured his constituents that the Tea party movement was extremely small and would have absolutely no influence on the political process.

Oh and one other thing, yo Stenny, we do not live in a democracy.

Obama and Hoyer wrote more than $3 trillion in debt in 2 years, which is more than twice what Reagan wrote in 8 years.

Wild Thing's comment........

Good grief she really is nuts. Nancy is still ticked about losing her airplane.

“they still would have passed Obamacare because they cannot sustain the system.”

Who’s they? Strange detachment from the person most responsible for the worst bill ever passed by a legislative trick. She just told us that Obamacare real goal was to take over healthcare system because they are greedy, blood thirsty parasites.

This video should be on Fox. These needs to go widespread.

Control, ability to create dependence on the government for your very health and life, ability of government to have easy, consolidated access to all of your info (financial, health, political leanings) in one place. It had nothing to do with improving health care, making it more affordable, covering more people, etc.

Wasn’t there a speaker of the house once named Nancy Pelosi??????????? heh heh

Russell Pearce on Why the 14th Amendment Bars "Anchor Babies"

Russell Pearce on Why the 14th Amendment Bars "Anchor Babies"

YouTube quote with video:

AZ Senate Speaker Russell Pearce, co-author of SB1070, discusses why his upcoming legislation banning "birthright citizenship" is supported by the 14th Amendment, its drafters' intent, and two supreme Court cases prior to Kim Wong Ark. Pearce expresses optimism that the Supreme Court will do the right thing, and restore the original intent that has been corrupted by courts and Administrations for decades to permit a massive stealth amnesty.


Wild Thing's comment........

Why oh Why can't people just read and follow the US Constitution? It's an amazingly simple document.

This isn't about "picking on babies" it is about upholding the Constitution.

he has said, "We've allowed the hijacking of the 14th Amendment." He says allowing what are termed "anchor babies" because they make deportation difficult is an incentive to illegal immigration. "They use it as a wedge," he said. "This is an orchestrated effort by them to come here and have children to gain access to the great welfare state we've created."

Pearce's argument is that the wording in the amendment that guarantees citizenship to people born in the U.S. who are "subject to the jurisdiction" of this country does not apply to the children of illegal immigrants because such families don't owe sole allegiance to the U.S.

Many foreign children are born here and live here legally many years, but are not automatically citizens, for example, children of diplomats, entertainers William Shatner(born in Canada) , Michael J. Fox ( born in Canada) , Richard Burton ( Wales) , Bob Hope ( England), athletes, etc.

Boehner Fires Back at Dem Senators and Their Threats About The Repeal

The Hill

Incoming House Speaker John Boehner’s office (R-Ohio) pointedly vowed on Tuesday to push ahead with legislation repealing healthcare reform.

Boehner’s office responded to a letter sent by the Senate’s top five Democrats, vowing to block a House bill repealing health reform, with a terse, 65-word note.

Boehner’s office wrote:

Senators Reid, Durbin, Schumer, Murray and Stabenow:

Thank you for reminding us — and the American people — of the backroom deal that you struck behind closed doors with ‘Big Pharma,’ resulting in bigger profits for the drug companies, and higher prescription drug costs for 33 million seniors enrolled in Medicare Part D, at a cost to the taxpayers of $42.6 billion.

The House is going to pass legislation to repeal that now. You’re welcome.

— Speaker-Designate John Boehner’s Press Office

The note comes in response to a letter released on Monday by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) office, in which the Democrats promise to block a bill repealing benefits within the healthcare law.

Boehner's response is a sign that the incoming GOP House has little interest in backing off their promise to repeal (or at least chip away) at the healthcare bill.

It's also indicative of what could be a series of battles between the Republican-held House and the Democratic-controlled Senate over the next two years.

Sheriff Paul Babeu on Napolitano's Afghan Trip: "It's Outrageous!"

Arizona Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu slammed Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for visiting Afghanistan to lecture them about border security while the US border with Mexico is compromised and not secure.

“It’s outrageous… Napolitano, who’s charged with the security of our country. Who’s over in foreign countries now. She’s the Homeland Security Secretary. She’s not the Secretary of State. She of anybody should be sounding the alarm and talking about security threats and she’s the one carrying out the “political speak” of the president saying this border is more secure than ever before. Meanwhile the threat that we face in Arizona and literally for our nation’s security I believe is a far greater national security threat to our nation’s security than Iraq, than Afghanistan, than any of these other places.”

Sheriff Babeu, who has received death threats from the Mexican cartel, was outraged by Napolitano’s trip to Afghanistan. Babeu also spoke about the people from “countries of interest like Yemen, Somalia and Jordan” that they are capturing entering the US illegally.


Napolitano Visit Aimed at Beefing Up Afghan Border Security, Customs

FOX News

KABUL, Afghanistan -- During an unannounced New Year's Eve visit to Afghanistan, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano traveled to the country's mountainous border region near Pakistan to see first-hand her department's efforts in the war effort there.

"Seeing is worth a thousand words," Napolitano said after the tour, to which Fox News was granted exclusive access. "This all involves safety and security in this part of the world. And that is something that has direct connection as well to the United States."

She described her department's role in war-torn Afghanistan as a "complement" to the military operations there.

Her agency has about two dozen officials in Afghanistan, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, Customs and Border Protection officers, and Border Patrol agents. Many are training Afghan security forces to manage their country's borders.

Wild Thing's comment........

How about SECURING AMERICA’S BORDERS??????!!!!!!

I know these SURPRISE visits to the war zone by politicians was begun by President Bush but I really wish they’d knock it off. Using America’s military men and women as political photo op props really disgusts me.

Before you know it, Napolitano will have the Afghan border as secure as the US/Mexico border, which is the most secure it’s ever been.

Obama Pulling BS and PR Stunt On Oil Companies As Obama Administration Allows Gulf Drilling

Obama Administration allows Gulf drilling

Miami Herald

In a move that could signal a long-awaited return to business-as-usual in the Gulf of Mexico, the Obama administration announced Monday that it would allow 13 companies to resume deepwater oil and gas drilling suspended when the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded last spring.

The Administration had instituted a moratorium on deepwater drilling after BP's Macondo well blew out on April 20, killing 11 workers on the rig and spewing nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the ocean, in the country's worst offshore oil disaster. The Interior Department lifted the moratorium in mid-October. Yet because drilling permits have been issued at a far slower pace than before the disaster, the Administration has faced criticism from the oil industry, Gulf Coast politicians and citizens that a de facto moratorium persists.

So far, two companies have received new permits after the lifting of the moratorium, but for activities they could have done under the suspension any way, an administration official explained. The oil and gas industry and its supporters have been waiting for permits to be issued for actual exploration and development, and Monday's decision makes way for such work.

"We are taking into account the special circumstances of those companies whose operations were interrupted by the moratorium and ensuring that they are able to resume previously-approved activities," said Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Director Michael R. Bromwich. "For those companies that were in the midst of operations at the time of the deepwater suspensions, today's notification is a significant step toward resuming their permitted activity."

The decision Monday allows the companies, including Chevron, Shell, Hess and Kerr-McGee. to return to 16 wells they were drilling in early 2010, nearly all of them exploratory wells. The companies would have to adhere to new standards issued after the Gulf oil spill regulating equipment like the blow-out preventer and processes like an oil spill response plan. But they would not have to undertake new environmental assessments, as is required for drilling new wells.

The oil industry fears that permits for new deepwater drilling might not be issued until late this year at the earliest.

About 30 percent of domestic oil production and 23 percent of gas production comes from deepwater wells.

Oil company representatives said they had yet to calculate the effect the decision might have on their individual projects in the Gulf of Mexico. But some industry sources remained skeptical of an Interior Department they have come to view as an adversary after it tightened regulations.

They said that the decision was a public relations ploy in response to a front page story in The Wall Street Journal on Monday detailing the slowdown in deepwater drilling, and they did not expect it to jumpstart work in the Gulf.

"The pattern we've seen again and again is that the administration makes an announcement when they're under the gun," an industry official said, "but then there's no change afterwards."

The oil industry's political allies were also guarded.


Wild Thing's comment........

PR stunt 'til sundown!!

When I that they will be “allowed” to resume drilling, not immeidiately, but only after fulfilling a host of new bureaucratic requirements that could take months.

I think this move is strictly a CYA so that when gas prices shoot above $4 a gallon, they can stand around with an innocent look and say “Who, me?”.

But much of the damage is already done - the rigs that have moved, the holes that haven’t been started, the production that’s been lost, the regulatory hurdles that will discourage new permitting, and as much as anything, the debasement of the currency that affects all commodities, but especially those as essential (and as foreign-based) as oil.

$5.00 dollars a gallon in 2012. Obama will try to squirm around and blame the Oil Companies for it. The Democrats then will be wailing and flailing.

The Muslim in the WH is supporting the Saudi muslums in their fight for 150 oil.

And the Wall Street Journal reports today that, “More than two months after the Obama administration lifted its ban on drilling in the deep-water Gulf of Mexico, oil companies are still waiting for approval to drill the first new oil well there. Experts now expect the wait to continue until the second half of 2011, and perhaps into 2012.” The WSJ headline is: Drilling Ban is Off, But Work is Stalled. Domestic production will fall 13% instead of increasing by 6% as predicted. Complying with new regulations onerous. Economic damage multiplies throughout the region. Restoring to previous levels not expected until 2012.

So “allowed to drill” REALLY means.....”slow death by bureaucratic stalling”.

Our country should NEVER need permission from any president to drill for oil ! Our land and out in the Gulf is rich in oil and a president and any enviro brain dead group should have any say so in it . EVER!

Senate Dems warn Boehner: Don't bother with healthcare repeal

The Hill

The 112th Congress doesn't begin until Wednesday, but Senate Democrats are already vowing to block any attempts by the new GOP-led House to repeal the healthcare reform law.

The Senate's top Democrats, led by Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.), wrote incoming House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday warning the new GOP House against advancing legislation that would undo the sweeping healthcare overhaul.

"The incoming House Republican majority that you lead has made the repeal of the federal health care law one of its chief goals. We urge you to consider the unintended consequences that the law’s repeal would have on a number of popular consumer protections that help middle class Americans," the Democrats said.

Democrats said repeal would threaten the consumer protections included in the healthcare package, including the provision that eliminates the so-called "doughnut hole" in seniors' Medicare drug coverage.

"If House Republicans move forward with a repeal of the healthcare law that threatens consumer benefits like the 'donut hole' fix, we will block it in the Senate. This proposal deserves a chance to work. It is too important to be treated as collateral damage in a partisan mission to repeal health care," wrote Reid, Dick Durbin, Charles Schumer, Patty Murray, Debbie Stabenow.

Allen West: We Cannot Have a National Security Strategy Unless We Recognize Sharia As A Threat

ALLEN WEST: So there are many different ways we need to understand this 21st century battlefield, how we can leverage all elements of our nation’s power against — and like I said we need to get away from this nation building focus. I think that is economically hurting us.

GAFFNEY: In terms of understanding our enemy, and I think you’ve done as much as any congressional candidate to help expand the awareness for not only your constituents but others. I count on you to be carrying that on in your new capacity. What is your sense of the willingness of this new Congress to take on Sharia as the enemy threat doctrine?

WEST: Well, I haven’t had the opportunity to sit down with all of the new members, giving all the new members of the freshmen class a phone call to talk to them. I think one of the critical things that we must come together is that there is an infiltration of the Sharia practice into all of our operating systems in our country as well as across Western civilization. So we must be willing to recognize that enemy. We cannot have a national security strategy that does not recognize it in specific and understand its goals and objectives.

So once again, we can tailor you know our internal goals and objectives as far as our security systems, our political systems, economic systems, our cultural and educational systems, so that we can thwart this. And it comes back to one of those strategic goals that you mentioned, reducing the sphere of influence of this Sharia you know ideology that is tied into Islam. But I think that is our most threatening part, is the Sharia philosophy.

Our country is blessed to have this man, this warrior in our government........finally. I have waited a long time for an elected official to make a stand on this subject of Sharia.

God bless and protect this fine man.

In Canada A Muslim Group Requests Permission To Distribute Qur’an In Public Schools

Group requests permission to distribute Qur’an in public schools

A Muslim organization has applied to the Waterloo Region District School Board to send a copy of the Qur’an home with any Grade 5 student whose parents indicate they would like one.

A representative of the Islamic Information Center at the University of Waterloo approached the former chair of the board, Kitchener trustee Mike Ramsay, with the request about a month ago.

Ramsay said he made sure that the group got all the information it required to make the written application.

“That particular request will come before the Board in the fall of 2011 for approval of distribution of the Qur’an in the 2011-12 school year,” said the board’s education director, Linda Fabi, in an email.

Fabi couldn’t be reached for comment Friday, and neither could the Muslim representative who spoke to Ramsay.


Wild Thing's comment........

Do NOT do this and God help us if they suggest it in our country. With obama at the helm and so many wanting to make nice with Islam it could happen here.

Obama's Fault and His Congress Last Year ~ 50 million taxpayers must delay filing - IRS

50 million taxpayers must delay filing - IRS

CNN Money

The IRS said that it needs until mid- to late-February to reprogram its processing systems because Congress acted so late this year cleaning up the tax code.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Itemize your tax deductions? Itching for a refund? You're going to have to wait.

The IRS said that it needs until mid- to late-February to reprogram its processing systems because Congress acted so late this year cleaning up the tax code. The bill, which includes deductions for state and local sales taxes, college tuition and teacher expenses, wasn't signed into law until Dec. 17.

The bill ensured that the federal income tax rates would not change, and itemized deductions will continue to be allowed in full for high-income taxpayers.

As a result, the 50 million taxpayers who itemize their deductions will have to hold off for a bit before they file. Of course, not everyone files early: only about 9 million of the 140 million U.S. tax filers filed in January or February of last year.

"The majority of taxpayers will be able to fill out their tax returns and file them as they normally do," said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman in a statement. "The IRS will work through the holidays and into the New Year to get our systems reprogrammed and ensure taxpayers have a smooth tax season."

The delay affects both paper and electronic filers who itemize deductions on Form 1040 Schedule A. That includes those claiming the new Educator Expense Deduction, which credits grade school teachers for out-of-pocket expenses of up to $250.

It also includes those claiming deductions for college students, covering up to $4,000 of tuition, which is claimed on Form 8917, though the IRS said there will be no delays for those that claim other education tax credits.

Though itemizers can work on their tax returns before the IRS is ready to accept them, the government said people should not send them in before it is ready to process the returns.

The IRS hasn't yet said exactly what day it will be able to begin processing the impacted tax returns, but it expects to announce that date "in the near future."

Meanwhile, TurboTax said its customers can e-file with the company as early as Jan. 6, and it will hold onto the filings until the IRS is ready to process them.


Wild Thing's comment........

Caused by the same jerks who were in such a rush to pass Obamacare.

Thanks to the anti-American tyrant in our WH, and the incompetent, money grubbing, vindictive socialist ruling class in the 111th Congress! That Congress has got to have been the worst in the history of our country.


Can someone please explain to me how the extension of the Bush Tax Cuts that were set to expire at the end of 2010 effects the filing of your 2010 taxes?

Grenade throw EPIC FAIL ~ Yikes!

A Chinese army recruit somehow managed to escape unhurt after throwing a badly aimed grenade. The grenade hit a wall, ricocheting back to explode in the recruit's training bunker. Chinese army recruit Man Xiaoguan escaped certain death after misjudging his throw and sending a live grenade bouncing back off a wall and into his bunker. Nobody was hurt.

Obama's People and The Marxist Movement In New York City

A look at the growing Marxist movement in New York City. Even though they read Marx and Stalin, organize protests against Israel and play a board game that equates capitalism with barbarism, they shy away from calling themselves “socialist”. As one member puts it, “It’s more positive to say progressive or left.”


Wild Thing's comment........

We have already seen last year that the Europeans are waking up to the fact that Socialism doesn't work. To paraphrase Margaret Thatcher - it's all great until you run out of other people's money.

Liberalism/Socialism/Communism/Progressives, it doesn't matter what you call it. They are one and the same.

I have to tell you that these people and Obama and his people they make me so furious I cannot even put my thoughts down or I would be arrested before I took my next breath. The fact that they even exist in OUR country angers me, that they breath from the same air in the sky pisses me the hell off. The have lived in the best country in the entire world and it has been the liberals in BOTH parties that have run our country into the ground and these peices of flesh are saying that capitalism does not work that our Constitution does not work ( obama has said this many times ) that this country needs to find a NEW way of being or existing????????

Airhead Katie Couric: ‘Maybe We Need a Muslim Version of “The Cosby Show”‘

Katie Couric: Maybe We Need A Muslim Version Of The Cosby Show


Katie Couric, in her review of 2010, highlighted the controversy surrounding the Park51 project. “The bigotry expressed against Muslims in this country has been one of the most disturbing stories to surface,” she told her panel. In that media narrative, she saw “a seething hatred many people feel for all Muslims,” which she theorized could be remedied by another, more lighthearted narrative:

“Maybe we need a Muslim version of The Cosby Show.”

She came to the situationally comedic solution after offering this take on American Islamophobia:

"I also think sort of the chasm between, or, the bigotry expressed against Muslims in this country has been one of the most disturbing stories to surface this year. Of course, a lot of noise was made about the Islamic Center, mosque, down near the World Trade Center, but I think there wasn’t enough sort of careful analysis and evaluation of where this bigotry toward 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide, and how this seething hatred many people feel for all Muslims, which I think is so misdirected, and so wrong—and so disappointing. "

So could funny Muslims in even funnier sweaters be the answer? “I know that sounds crazy,” she said, “But The Cosby Show did so much to change attitudes about African-Americans in this country, and I think sometimes people are afraid of what they don’t understand—like you, Mo.” She was referring to Daily Show veteran and NPR regular Mo Rocca, who was present for the discussion. A Harvard alumnus, Rocca shamefully confessed that despite having attended “really fancy schools,” he knows basically “nothing about Islam.”

The two then “totally agree[d]” that “religion should be taught as an academic subject in public schools.”


Wild Thing's comment.........

So apparently to Katie there are unlimited comedy situations with Sharia Law. Stonings, beheadings and female genital removals in the first episodes should build up big ratings.

Anyone have even one example of Muslims being able to take a joke? Nope I didn't think so. They have gone after Winnie the Pooh's Piglet, and countless other things that have NO harm to them at all. Not only do they get mad but they bring out their we will behead you signs. sheesh

Kiss your 100-watt lightbulb goodbye ~ Thanks To Brain DEAD Environmentalists

Mark Levin takes a few calls about Fluorescent light bulbs


Kiss your 100-watt lightbulb goodbye

San Jose News

Californians can start saying goodbye to traditional 100-watt incandescent light bulbs now that the state has become the first in the country to require a new standard for the screw-base bulbs.

Experts say the new rules, which took effect New Year's Day, will save residents money and energy. California is already the nation's leader in energy efficiency standards.

As of Saturday, what used to be a 100-watt light bulb manufactured and sold in California will have to use 72 watts or less. The 72-watt replacement bulb, also called an energy saving halogen light, will provide the same amount of light, called lumens, for lower energy cost.

Similar new standards for traditional 75-watt, 60-watt and 40-watt incandescent bulbs will go into effect in California over the next few years, with wattages reduced to 53, 43 and 29 respectively.

The new rule does not ban incandescent light bulbs; it just requires those bulbs to be 25 to 30 percent more efficient. And it only affects incandescent light bulbs manufactured after 2011, not light bulbs already in use or on store shelves.


Wild Thing's comment.........

These lights they are going to force us to us won't let a person have good light for reading or doing anything else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Illegals are OK
Muslims are OK they did not attack us it was just some radicals
good old regular light bulbs are BAD
BIG government is GOOD
people that do well = BAD
Veterans = BAD according to DHS they are possible terrorists
Drilling for oil ONLY if is the USA = BAD

the list goes on into more and more insanity

ENOUGH! of this crap!

Mark Steyn was in for Rush on Thurs and read the Maine EPA instructions for what to do if you break one of those stupid bulbs, it’s insane!

Overview of a two-page doc from the EPA of how to clean-up after a CFL breakage.

The most important steps to reduce exposure to mercury vapor from a broken bulb are:
1. Before cleanup
a. Have people and pets leave the room.
b. Air out the room for 5‐10 minutes by opening a window or door to the outdoor environment.
c. Shut off the central forced air heating/air conditioning (H&AC) system, if you have one.
d. Collect materials needed to clean up broken bulb.
2. During cleanup
a. Be thorough in collecting broken glass and visible powder.
b. Place cleanup materials in a sealable container.
3. After cleanup
a. Promptly place all bulb debris and cleanup materials outdoors in a trash container or protected area until materials can be disposed of properly. Avoid leaving any bulb fragments or cleanup materials indoors.
b. For several hours, continue to air out the room where the bulb was broken and leave the H&AC system shut off.

Can you imagine a guy in prison answering the question, “what are you in for?” With “smuggling lightbulbs”?

The “green lie” is the most costly and ill conceived nonsense I have ever witnessed. It is amazing how many otherwise “intelligent” “educated” people believe that crap.

Bomb Hits Coptic Church In Alexandria, Egypt Killing 21 Christians

FOX News

ALEXANDRIA, Egypt – A powerful bomb, possibly from a homicide attacker, exploded in front of a Coptic Christian church as a crowd of worshippers emerged from a New Years Mass early Saturday, killing at least 21 people and wounding nearly 80 in an attack that raised suspicions of an Al Qaeda role.

The attack came in the wake of repeated threats by Al Qaeda militants in Iraq to attack Egypt's Christians. A direct Al Qaeda hand in the bombing would be a dramatic development, as Egypt's government has long denied that the terror network has a significant presence in the country. Al Qaeda in Iraq has already been waging a campaign of violence against Christians in that country.

Police initially said the blast came from an explosives-packed car parked outside the Saints Church in the Mediterranean port city. But the Interior Ministry later said it was more likely from a bomber who blew himself up among the crowd.

Both tactics are hallmarks of Al Qaeda and have been rarely used in Egypt, where the government crushed an insurgency by Islamic militants in the 1990s. Though the government of President Hosni Mubarak denies an Al Qaeda presence, Egypt does have a rising movement of Islamic hard-liners who, while they do not advocate violence, adhere to an ideology similar in other ways to Al Qaeda. There have been fears they could be further radicalized amid growing sectarian tensions between Egypt's Muslim majority and Christian minority.

Nearly 1,000 Christians were attending the New Year's Mass at the Saints Church, said Father Mena Adel, a priest at the church. The service had just ended, and some worshippers were leaving the building when the bomb went off about a half hour after midnight, he said.


Barack Obama released a statement today claimed the victims were both Christian and Muslim.

From the White House :

"The attack on a church in Alexandria, Egypt caused 21 reported deaths and dozens of injured from both the Christian and Muslim communities."

All 21 of the victims in the attack were Christian. No Muslims died in the attack.

Catholic Online :

The explosion, during the first hour of the New Year, left 21 dead, 79 injured and questions about possible involvement of al-Qaida. All but eight of the injured and all the fatalities were Christians from Saints Church, located on the eastern side of the coastal city.


And this next thing which is just soooo typical of Muslims and their DNA hate for Jews and Christians ~ Wild Thing

The Vancouver Sun

The Islamist Palestinian movement Hamas also condemned the attack, saying it was “certain it was the work of elements acting against the interests of Egypt and looking to promote confrontation between Muslims and Christians”

A top Shiite Muslim leader in Lebanon, Sheikh Abdel Amir Kabalan, denounced the attack as a “terrorist act aimed at sowing chaos and fear in Egypt”.
“This terrorist act bears the fingerprints of Zionists who keep on targeting religious sights and are working to … sow discord between Muslims and Christians,” Kabalan said in a statement.


Wild Thing's comment........

God bless the Coptic Christians. They have suffered enormously because of their beliefs. Rest the souls of those killed, and comfort the survivors and families.

I’ll be waiting for Muslims around the world condemn this violence and to defend Christians.

And to top it off Obama has to bring his muslims into being victims when they were NOT. He truly hits raw nerves with me.

There was also this on Christmas Eve.

Islamic sect claims Nigeria attacks, toll at 86 BAUCHI, Nigeria, Dec 28 (Reuters) - A radical Islamist sect said on Tuesday it was behind bombings in central Nigeria and attacks on churches in the northeast of the country that led to the deaths of at least 86 people.

Special Rose Parade Float Honors 9/11 Victims


Thousands of volunteers were hard at work in Pasadena and Irwindale getting the floats ready for the 122nd Rose Parade Presented by Honda, but one float in particular is much more than just a float.

"It's a dream come true for me. This is something I've wanted to do for nine years," said Jerry Thomsen, a firefighter specialist.

When America was attacked more than nine years ago, a group of Los Angeles firefighters headed to Ground Zero to help, and Thomsen was among them. Now he and his L.A. firefighting buddies are honoring their fallen comrades in a uniquely Californian way.

"I've heard 'never forget' for a long time, and I think we've forgotten about our heroes that we lost," he said.

The front of the float honors the hijacked United 93 flight. The middle commemorates the Pentagon. The rear depicts New York City.

The float will be lined with roses, each of them with a different 9/11 victim's name on it. A fire hydrant found in the Ground Zero rubble will also be on the float.

Merill Mielke, who has worked on floats for 38 years, says this one is most special.

"It has a lot more meaning behind it. It's not just a beautiful thing. It's really bringing memories back," she said.

For Thomsen, the float's message, "Remember, Reflect, Renew," fits perfectly with the overall Rose Parade.

There was jubilation as hundreds of high school musicians from Pennsylvania arrived at the Continental Airlines terminal at LAX on Tuesday night.

In particular, they are members of the Downingtown East High School band, one of only a dozen marching bands in the country selected to perform in Saturday's Tournament of Roses Parade.

The 350 band members were bused to Newark on Monday where they were scheduled to catch their flights, but the blizzard conditions caused cancellations and almost shattered the hopes of the students. That was until the airline came through and rebooked them on flights this Tuesday evening.

"It's unbelievable to come to California and perform in front of 40 rows of people," said band member Ashley Brown.

The theme of the parade is "'Building Dreams, Friendships and Memories."

There is a California Firefighters Honor Guard Pipes and Drums which will march in the parade.

This year 2011 will be the 10 yrs. anniversary of 9/11.

Here is the video preview of 9/11 float: Excellent video about the float.

Thanks goodness somebody’s doing something. It’s hard to imagine that it’s been 10 years. And the sickening thought it only took 8 years to put Barack Hussein Obama in the White House. UNFORGIVABLE! It’s so unbelievable how many forgot.

Rose Parade Float Honors President Ronald Reagan

Artist's rendering of Jelly Belly sponsored float celebrating the 100th birthday of Ronald Reagan in the Rose Parade. The float will be accompanied by a military honor guard. Reagan's 100th birthday is February 6.

Rose Parade float honors Ronald Reagan

Whittier Daily News

PASADENA - The centennial celebration of Ronald Reagan's birthday begins New Year's Day, when a float dedicated to the 40th president will make its way down Colorado Boulevard.

The 55-foot-long float is designed by Fiesta of Irwindale. It features a 26-foot-high bald eagle and 11 black-and-white photographs of Reagan, which will be decorated with onion seeds, poppy seeds and crushed sweet rice.

"President Reagan always believed America's best days were ahead. At a time when many Americans look forward to a New Year with a similar optimism and pride, we at the Reagan Foundation are honored to be invited to participate in the 122nd Rose Parade," said Stewart McLaurin, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation.

The Simi Valley-based Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library will be in partnership with Jelly Belly as sponsors of the float, officials said.

"Sponsoring the first-ever presidential themed float in the Rose Parade may seem an outside-the-box idea for a presidential library. It is," McLaurin said. "But 2011 is an extraordinarily special year."

The front of the float will feature a replica of the Ronald Reagan statue that stands in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol.

The 11 photographs depict Reagan at various stages in his career. Included are photos of Reagan on his horse "El Alamein" Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan in the White House, Reagan the movie star and Reagan delivering a speech at the Berlin Wall in which he exhorted Mikhail Gorbachev of the Soviet Union to tear down the Berlin Wall.

Mark Harmsen, a Tournament of Roses volunteer for the past 30 years, said he believes the float marks the first time a president has been honored with an entry.

Presidents that have traveled down Colorado Boulevard include Herbert Hoover, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.

Although never a grand marshal himself, Reagan once broadcast the parade on radio, Harmsen said. And, in some ways the 40th president was the quintessential Californian.

"That's one of the things that the foundation had in mind," Harmsen said. "His roots were here and the Rose Parade is a present to the country and the world - and a great way to kick off the celebration of the centennial of Reagan's birth in February."


Wild Thing's comment........

Awesome! A float honoring America's greatest President!!

Jelly Belly is co-sponsor of the float. He loved his Jelly Belly's. While he was governor of California, he quit smoking and ate jelly beans to help overcome the cravings. Jelly Belly was a new and very small confectioner that supplied him then, and throughout his presidency. They really are the best.

I hope and pray that the 100th anniversary year of the Gipper’s birth blesses our country with a new wave of patriotism and conservatism.

Dumb like a fox, did his version of “Rope a Dope” on the left so many times. Which is why the left still scorns him. He beat them at their own media game by going around the media and right to the American people. Besides his 1987 amnesty deal (nobody's perfect) he was truly the greatest 20th century President. AND he kicked Kadafi’s ass to boot.

President Reagan loved his country, her heritage, and her military!! And had GREAT respect for the Office of the President.

There is also this.........Ronald Reagan Stamp Commemorating 100th Anniversary of His Birth

On December 13, 2010, the United States Postal Service unveiled a centennial postage stamp at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, CA in honor of Ronald Reagan's birthday in Tampico, IL on February 6, 1911. It is the third time President Reagan has been honored with a stamp by the USPS.

The stamp is to be released four days after what would have been Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday. Reports are that this will be a special stamp with the 44 cent value replaced with the word "Forever" meaning that the stamp will always maintain first class delivery status regardless of future postal rate increases. This would be fitting for Reagan's handwritten letters to citizens which have been profiled in Dear Americans -- Letters from the Desk of Ronald Reagan was based on over 3,500 handwritten letters from the President to every day Americans. A volume of handwritten correspondence unequaled and all delivered with first class postage!

The stamp was made from a portrait based on a 1985 photograph of Reagan at his "Ranch in the Sky".

Here is a video of the Ronald Reagan Stamp Unveiling - December 13, 2010

This speech he made is one of my many favorites: Whoever did the video also did a great job with it.

"The time has come! For surely the tide is crashing against the shores of this great nation, ever receding the sands of time. A history of greatness waiting to be replenished with the glistening sands of truth! "
"A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one." Alexander Hamilton
Let's set the record straight. There is no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there is only one guaranteed way you can have peace--and you can have it in the next second--surrender.

Admittedly there is a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson in history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face--that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight and surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand--the ultimatum. And what then? When Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has told them that we are retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary because by that time we will have weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. He believes this because from our side he has heard voices pleading for "peace at any price" or "better Red than dead," or as one commentator put it, he would rather "live on his knees than die on his feet." And therein lies the road to war, because those voices don't speak for the rest of us. You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin--just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard 'round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn't die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well, it's a simple answer after all.

You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, "There is a price we will not pay." There is a point beyond which they must not advance. This is the meaning in the phrase of Barry Goldwater's "peace through strength." Winston Churchill said that "the destiny of man is not measured by material computation. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we are spirits--not animals." And he said, "There is something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty."

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.

Family Of Fallen Soldier Warmed By Letters, Stung By Politicians

Retired Lt. Col. Patrick Collins places his hand on his son Cpl. Sean Collins' coffin before the memorial service

Family of fallen soldier warmed by letters, stung by politicians ( OBAMA and Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash.)

Tacoma WA.News

The parents of a Yelm soldier killed in Afghanistan earlier this month have received cards from friends and strangers expressing condolences, and they’re grateful for the support. “As a father of someone killed, it is overwhelming,” said Lt. Col. Patrick Collins (Ret.).

His son, Sgt. Sean Collins, was buried Wednesday at the Tahoma National Cemetery.

Among that outpouring of empathy, two politicians inadvertently stung the family.

One slight came in a letter of condolences the family received from the office of Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash.

At first, the Collins family appreciated that Cantwell had taken the time to send a letter acknowledging their son’s sacrifice. But the letter misidentified the slain soldier in its last paragraph, which reads:

“Again, please accept my warmest condolences. May your memories of Bryn and the knowledge that he made a positive impact on the lives of so many serve as a source of comfort to you during this time of sorrow.”

The letter was dated Dec. 20 and delivered to Sean Collins’ mother, Linda Collins of Yelm. The error conveyed to the family that Cantwell had sent a form letter.

“They couldn’t even proofread it,” she said. “I’m sure if her son had died, she would’ve at least wanted his name spelled correctly. That’s just sloppy staff work, that’s an embarrassment,” Patrick Collins said. He has not yet called Cantwell’s office to ask for an apology.

Cantwell’s office is on short staffing for the holiday week and has not replied to an email to its press staff. The Collins family was in touch with Cantwell’s office in the capital Thursday, and was told Cantwell’s staffers were looking into the mistake.

The other slight came when Patrick Collins called the White House and asked to have President Obama call his ex-wife, Linda, to talk about their son. He was told that Obama did not regularly make phone calls to the families of fallen soldiers.

Later, Patrick Collins read a story about Obama’s phone call to Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie. Obama reportedly praised Lurie for giving quarterback Michael Vick a second chance to play football after serving time in prison for running a dog fighting ring.

“That burns,” Patrick Collins said Thursday. “Any soldier that gets killed in action, you’d think the president would be calling someone in the family. There’s no politics in it. His predecessor did it,” Collins said


Soldier laid to rest

Sgt. Collins died with 5 of his fellow soldiers on December 12 in a suicide attack on their Kandahar province combat outpost.

Muffled sobbing quickly followed the first melancholy notes of music as they rang out for Sgt. Sean M. Collins. The fallen soldier’s father, Lt. Col. Patrick Collins (Ret.), grimaced as he fought back his own tears. He stood at attention by a casket while the bugle played taps, holding a final salute to the son he called a hero.

The 2004 Yelm High School graduate volunteered for his last tour with the 101st Airborne Division out of Fort Campbell, Ky. It was his third combat deployment in five years.

“My son was a hero,” said Patrick Collins, who served in Afghanistan in 2004 and 2005. “He could have stayed at Campbell. He had dwell time. He was a team leader and he wanted to go with his team.”

“Sean wanted to be in the Army since he was 3,” said his brother, Travis.

The day the soldiers died, Dec. 12, 2010, “will be a day no soldier in Bravo Company will ever forget,” said Capt. David Yu, according to a report from the memorial that appeared in Stars and Stripes. Yu was the commander of Collins’ company in the 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team.

Brig. Gen. Kurt Story presided over Sgt. Collins funeral today. A seven-soldier honor guard handles the services with precision. It fired a 21-gun salute, stood by while the bugler played Taps and folded the flag over Collins’ casket with sharp, tight angles.

Story handed the flag to Linda Collins, as well as a separate flag to Patrick Collins.

“Your son will be missed, but he will never be forgotten,” Story told them.

After the military honors, Collins’ family talked with guests while the cemetery prepared a grave for his ashes. The mourners made one more caravan to the site and gathered in a circle around the grave while his urn was laid into the ground.

First honestly I would not want to hear from either of these to democrat freaks if I had a son that was killed in the war. But I DO understand the point, it is supposed to be done or should be by their local politician and also if Obama was like Bush did there would be a phone call.

These dems in power are the worst form of humanity.

It is not an excuse if her staff made a misake or not it is still UNACCETABLE!

Remember the Ft Hood shooting, where GW Bush and his wife Laura drove to Hood to see the wounded. Several hours later, the White House called and asked the Bushes to leave. A couple of days later, Obama showed up for a speech which began with shout outs.

Mayor Bloomberg Spearheaded Drive for Ground Zero Mosque Approval

Mayor Bloomberg’s Office Spearheaded Drive for Ground Zero Mosque Approval According to Documents Uncovered by Judicial Watch ( complete title)

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents from New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s office that show his office was instrumental in helping Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, his wife Daisy Khan and their partner Sharif el-Gamal obtain approval for a massive mosque and “community center” to be built in the shadow of Ground Zero, the site of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The documents, obtained by Judicial Watch pursuant to an open records request and related lawsuit, included email correspondence between top officials inside the Mayor’s office and supporters of the Ground Zero Mosque, a project spearheaded by the Rauf-led Cordoba Initiative. Among the highlights:

A May 10, 2010, email from Daisy Khan, listed as Executive Director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, to Fatima Shama, Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs: “Is there a good time to chat tomorrow. We need some guidance on how to tackle the opposition.”

A letter supporting the Ground Zero Mosque drafted by Nazi Parvizi, Commissioner of the Mayor’s Community Affairs Unit, to Julie Menin, Chairman of Manhattan’s Community Board 1, which had considered a resolution supporting the mosque. Parvizi crafted the letter for Daisy Khan’s signature, asking the board to temporarily withdraw the mosque resolution due to public outrage over the project. Parvizi described the purpose of the letter in a May 15, 2010, email: “What the letter will do, I hope, is get the media’s attention off everyone’s backs and give you guys time to regroup on your strategy as discussed…”

A legal review of the Menin letter sent to the Mayor’s office by Rauf on May 15, 2010. The letter contemplates the impact withdrawing the Community Board 1 resolution could have on the effort to de-designate the mosque site as a historical landmark at a June 22, 2010, Landmark Commission meeting, thus allowing the project to move forward:

The Borough President (and Councilmember Chin) have a firm policy at speaking up at public agencies only after the community board has taken a position on an item. So withdrawing the resolution may affect their thinking about how helpful they can be on June 22. That in itself may not be fatal to getting [the site] de-designated but I do know that [Landmark Commission] Chairman Tierney was looking forward to having the "political cover" their support would bring him.

The Landmark Commission ultimately decided to de-designate the property.

* A May 7, 2010, congratulations email from Shama to Rauf, Khan and el-Gamal after the Community Board 1 finance subcommittee expressed support for the Ground Zero Mosque project: “Again-congratulations!!! This is very exciting for all of you and the community at large! Daisy, as always – you were AMAZING last night – thank you!”

* A May 7, 2010, email from Khan to Rauf, el-Gamal and Shama after the finance subcommittee vote: “Just spoke with Commissioner Nazli Parvizi. She will call Julie Mennon [sic] to thank them for passing the resolution and ask how she can assist.”

* A January 2010 email exchange documenting Shama’s successful attempt to expedite a temporary public assembly permit so supporters of the Ground Zero Mosque could conduct prayers at the site.

* A series of email exchanges regarding a September 18, 2009, meeting between Shama, Rauf, el-Gamal, Khan and others from the Ground Zero Mosque project. A September 22, 2009, follow-up email summarized the meeting: “It was wonderful to be with everyone…on Friday night…Fatima mentioned that there are a number of concrete next steps that need to be undertaken re: the Cordoba House. In terms of a point person and centralized contact, please advise Fatima as to whom she should be in direct contact with on these and all other Cordoba House matters moving forward.”

* An April 22, 2010, email from Khan to Shama asking Shama to sign a letter of support for the Ground Zero Mosque project. “We have been honored to have developed a relationship with you over the last years…we consider you amongst our closest allies and friends.” The email included a draft letter for Shama to sign.

In July 2010, Mayor Bloomberg told reporters it was “un-American” to investigate the individuals behind the Ground Zero Mosque. Shortly thereafter, on August 9, 2010, Judicial Watch filed Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) requests with the Mayor’s office, seeking contacts between city officials and Rauf and controversial Muslim organizations. On November 4, 2010, after receiving no response from Mayor Bloomberg’s office to its request and a subsequent administrative appeal, Judicial Watch filed a petition with the New York State Supreme Court to compel the Mayor’s office to comply with the open records requests. Judicial Watch received the documents just before Christmas on December 23, 2010.

“These new documents show that Mayor Bloomberg’s office was working hand in glove with the Muslim activists driving the unpopular Ground Zero mosque project. Now we know what the Mayor was trying to hide and why his office couldn’t bother to comply with the Freedom of Information Law. New Yorkers want honesty and transparency from their Mayor, not obfuscation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Rauf has made a number of radical and controversial statements regarding Islamic extremism, particularly the terrorist attacks of 9/11. For example, during a 60 Minutes interview about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Rauf said: “I wouldn’t say that the United States deserved what happened. But the United States’ policies were an accessory to the crime that happened…we have been an accessory to a lot of innocent lives dying in the world. In fact, in the most direct sense, Osama bin Laden is made in the USA.”

Sixty-five percent of New York City residents opposed the mosque. A majority approved a third term for this clown. How many have buyers remorse? He is sooo horrible!!!

He must like the way “Ayatollah Bloomberg" sounds.

Bob Hope Remembered On City of Burbank Float in Rose Bowl Parade

On Saturday, February 20 the City of Burbank will turn 100. There is a lot of history in Burbank, history of the wonderful years of showbiz that most of us have loved. The years when Stars more then most loved to entertain the troops and many as well served in our military.

The Design Committee solicited ideas for images to use in a "filmstrip" around the base of the float. Bob Hope was one of the many candidates that everyone liked. Walt Disney, Johnny Carson, and Dr. Burbank will be the others.

Wild Thing's comment........

This will be a wonderful Rose Bowl Parade this year. I am so glad they included Bob Hope with this float. Carson too, no one has replaced either one of them.

.....Thank you Mr.Happy for sending this to me.
