‘Defending Liberty’: Defiant Clarence Thomas Slams Critics for ‘Undermining’ High Court ~ Thank You Judge Thomas!

‘Defending Liberty’: Defiant Clarence Thomas Slams Critics for ‘Undermining’ High Court

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas – his impartiality under attack from liberals because of his attendance at a meeting of conservative donors sponsored by the Koch brothers and his wife’s tea party activism – struck a defiant tone in a Saturday night speech in Charlottesville, Va., telling a friendly audience that he and his wife “believe in the same things” and “are focused on defending liberty.”

Delivering the keynote speech at an annual symposium for conservative law students, Thomas spoke in vague, but ominous, terms about the direction of the country and urged his listeners to “redouble your efforts to learn about our country so that you’re in a position to defend it.”
He also lashed out at his critics, without naming them, asserting they “seem bent on undermining” the High Court as an institution. Such criticism, Thomas warned, could erode the ability of American citizens to fend off threats to their way of life.

“You all are going to be, unfortunately, the recipients of the fallout from that – that there’s going to be a day when you need these institutions to be credible and to be fully functioning to protect your liberties,” he said, according to a partial recording of the speech provided to POLITICO by someone who was at the meeting.

“And that’s long after I’m gone, and that could be either a short or a long time, but you’re younger, and it’s still going to be a necessity to protect the liberties that you enjoy now in this country.”

Thomas spoke at the closing banquet for the symposium, which was sponsored by the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group.

It was the first time Thomas has spoken out – at least in a semi-public setting – about the mounting controversies that have swirled around him and his wife, Virginia Thomas, who goes by “Ginni” and who was in Charlottesville with her husband.

The justice’s critics have argued that his attendance at, and speech to, a private January 2008 gathering of major conservative donors sponsored by the billionaire industrialist Koch brothers in Palm Springs, Calif. and his wife’s political activism have compromised his position on the court.

God Love and Protect this stellar American.

I have immense respect for Clarence Thomas. I highly recommend his autobiography My Grandfather’s Son and am amazed and humbled by how hard he worked, both physically and academically, from a young age into manhood, unlike a large percentage of American kids today who have never experienced a hard day’s labor. God bless Justice Thomas and his family, and God help those who perpetuate evil against them.

A genuine decent, honest patriotic American - which is precisely why obama and his pals want him destroyed.

Emphasizing the importance of the Supreme Court, Thomas said “It’s not a game with me. It doesn’t deal with any ego stuff with me. This is about our country. And one of the things I want to do is I want to go to my grave knowing that I gave everything I had to trying to get it right.”

God Bless Justice Thomas.

Last Living U.S. World War I Veteran Passes Away

Frank Buckles, the last living U.S. World War I veteran, has died, a spokesman for his family said Sunday. He was 110. He also spent 3 1/2 years in a Japanese prison camps.


Here is a trailer for a film about him.............."Pershing's Last Patriot....The Cup "


Last living U.S. World War I veteran dies

Frank Buckles, who lied about his age to get into uniform during World War I and lived to be the last surviving U.S. veteran of that war, has died. He was 110.

Buckles "died peacefully in his home of natural causes" early Sunday morning, the family said in a statement sent to CNN late Sunday by spokesman David DeJonge.

Buckles marked his 110th birthday on February 1, but his family had earlier told CNN he had slowed considerably since last fall, according his daughter Susannah Buckles Flanagan, who lives at the family home near Charles Town, West Virginia.

Buckles, who served as a U.S. Army ambulance driver in Europe during what became known as the "Great War," rose to the rank of corporal before the war ended. He came to prominence in recent years, in part because of the work of DeJonge, a Michigan portrait photographer who had undertaken a project to document the last surviving veterans of that war.

As the years continued, all but Buckles had passed away, leaving him the "last man standing" among U.S. troops who were called "The Doughboys."

DeJonge found himself the spokesman and advocate for Buckles in his mission to see to it that his comrades were honored with a monument on the National Mall, alongside memorials for veterans of World War II and the conflicts in Korea and Vietnam.

Buckles made history when he was asked to testify in Congress on the matter before a House committee on December 3, 2009.

"I have to," he told CNN when he came to Washington, as part of what he considered his responsibility to honor the memory of fellow-veterans.

Buckles, after World War I ended, took up a career as a ship's officer on merchant vessels. He was captured by the Japanese in the Philippines during World War II and held prisoner of war for more than three years before he was freed by U.S. troops.

Never saying much about his POW experience, Buckles instead wanted attention drawn to the plight of the D.C. War Memorial.

Renovations to the structure began last fall, but Buckles, with his health already failing, could not make a trip to Washington to review the improvements. The National Park Service is overseeing efforts that include replacing a neglected walkway and dressing up a deteriorated dome and marble columns.

Details for services and arrangements will be announced in the days ahead, the family statement said.

Flanagan, his daughter, said preliminary plans began weeks ago, with the Military District of Washington expressing its support for an honors burial at Arlington, including an escort platoon, a horse-drawn casket arrival, a band and a firing party.

"It has long been my father's wish to be buried in Arlington, in the same cemetery that holds his beloved General Pershing," Flanagan wrote as she began to prepare for the inevitable in a letter she sent to home-state U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia.

"I feel confident that the right thing will come to pass," she said.

In addition to graveside ceremonies, a proposal from U.S. Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, calls for a memorial in the U.S. Capitol, where Buckles' casket would be displayed with honors.

Buckles in 2008 attended Veterans Day ceremonies at Arlington at the grave of Gen. John Pershing, the commander of U.S. troops during World War I.

He also had met with then-President George W. Bush at the White House, and U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates at the Pentagon.

"The First World War is not well understood or remembered in the United States," Gates said at the time. "There is no big memorial on the National Mall. Hollywood has not turned its gaze in this direction for decades. Yet few events have so markedly shaped the world we live in."

Army Times

Born in Missouri in 1901 and raised in Oklahoma, Buckles visited a string of military recruiters after the United States entered the “war to end all wars” in April 1917. He was repeatedly rejected before convincing an Army captain he was 18. He was 16½..

“A boy of [that age], he’s not afraid of anything. He wants to get in there,” Buckles said.


Back when he was onlyh 107 years old he was interviewed. Frank Woodruff Buckles says he feels responsible for keeping the story of World War I alive.

RIP, CPL Buckles. God’s speed and thank you. A grateful nation is truly appreciative of your service.

Nicholas and I are flying our Flag in our front yard at half mast for Cpl. Buckles.

A part of history for our country passes away and we must never forget. We must do what we can to never let it be just grainy black and photos in a text book.

Just Shut The Damn Thing Down by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Just Shut The Damn Thing Down

by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Democrats are not taking ‘We the People’ seriously. They continue to snuggle up with money laundering big labor unions and the Democrats’ support base composed largely of government dependents. The American majority made a loud and clear statement last fall by electing rational fiscally conservative candidates to a House majority and into key positions at the state level. Too bad we did not accomplish same in the socialist Democrat dominated Senate which, despite the best intentions of the House, will likely block any meaningful spending cuts at the Federal level. And there is also Dictator Obama’s veto pen.

The Federal government has driven America into the ground in a very short time and continues to dig deeper. Sadly, big labor unions have been transformed into partisan political machines while giving only lip service to their membership whose dues, ultimately paid for by taxpayers, go straight to socialist Democrat political campaigns via union bosses. That means our tax money is being misdirected to support the election of socialist Democrats!

During the industrial revolution, unions were necessary to ensure humane working conditions and adequate worker pay particularly in the private sector. But today we see loss of much private industry to overseas competitors, leaving America with a large private service sector along with taxpayer-funded government bureaucrats, teachers and an assortment of public workers where work conditions are no longer a significant issue. Some public sector employees make out like bandits when compared to their private sector counterparts, with wages and generous benefits funded entirely by taxpayers.

But now the nation is bankrupt. Local municipalities and taxpayers are struggling. The last election was solely about downsizing government spending at all levels which requires revamping entitlement programs and asking public employees to start picking up some of the tab for their own retirement and healthcare benefits. State governments do not have time to engage in ‘collective bargaining’ over a few reasonable nominal changes imposed upon public employees who are ultimately employed by We the People.

The alternative to minimal sacrifice by public sector workers is layoffs for those who refuse to participate. I am certain there are many qualified workers in the private sector who will happily take their place. I am equally certain there are plenty of union members who would rather resign their union membership than lose their jobs.

The message of the Tea Party remains: downsize government and spending. State governors and their legislatures have increasingly taken that message seriously. With regressive socialist Democrats standing in the way, we should not expect meaningful progress at the Federal level.

The republic will continue to collapse into the laps of Barry Soetoro and his anti-American supporters until We the People enforce alternative plans. In the short run, perhaps shutting down most Federal government offices would be a good thing (no pay for no work either). If the Senate and Mr. Obama will not embrace spending cuts demanded by rational people, and then shut the damn Fedzilla monster down until they do.

Fox News Reporter Assaulted By Union Thug Protesters In Wisconsin

Fox News reporter Mike Tobin gets heckled and hit by pro-union protesters during a live broadcast in Madison, Wisconsin. The protesters chanted “Fox News lies” and covered up the cameras to try to prevent Tobin from being able to do his job.

FOX reporter discussing with Geraldo about the HATE he sees in the faces and eyes and how they tell him they hate him.

“One thing I think should make clear – the people coming after us from every live shot here, these people hate,” Tobin said. “These are people who don’t respect diverse viewpoints. In fact, they’re so afraid I’ll present a diverse viewpoint, that’s why they try to heckle me and shut down every live shot. They’ve made it clear, that what they want to make it harder for me to do my job. They are proud of that when they disrupt a live shot, when they really trample over the First Amendment rights or the First Amendment’s obligations of a reporter. Now, I am not saying that’s all of the people. Those are the people that come here and heckle and try to disrupt things. I look in their eyes – there is hate in their eyes. They don’t want to hear any kind of viewpoint that is different from their own. That’s why they do what they do.”

Whenever one of these nut jobs is asked exactly what Fox News lies about, none can come up with a clear answer.


"Im Going To Break His Neck" Fox Reporter Threatened To Have Neck Broken


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

I suspect Geraldo wasn't thrilled with Tobin's reporting. Rivera has been in "solidarity" with the protesters since the get-go.

The Union goons think everyday Americans stand with them - they are in for one rude awakening.

The left may pretend to be for civil rights and free speech and rights but all they want is control, money forcibly taken by taxation, and the ability to suppress the free speech of those they disagree with.

"Racist" Baa Baa Black Sheep Put Out to Pasture ~ Good Grief

"Racist" Baa Baa Black Sheep put out to pasture

Black sheep are on the endangered species list as some children in north Queensland learn to sing Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep.

The English nursery rhyme may have survived for 200-plus years but political correctness could finally put it out to pasture.

Some schools in Britain have banned the song for being racist, but Pelicans Innisfail Child Care allows children to sing about black sheep or rainbow sheep.

Director Pam McLaughlin said some teachers sang the changed lyrics, and some children already knew the changes.

"We just go with whatever the children want," Ms McLaughlin said.

"The kids are just singing and having fun. Some sing black sheep, some sing rainbow sheep. It's just a song.

"We don't have anything that says, 'You have to sing it this way'."

The BBC reported in 2000 that Birmingham City Council had banned the song for being racist. It was later overturned after a backlash from parents.

The council said it had obtained the guidelines, which stated: "The history behind the rhyme is very negative and also very offensive to black people, due to the fact that the rhyme originates from slavery".

Six years later in 2006, a nursery in Sutton Courtenay in Britain banned the nursery rhyme.

In other examples, the principal of a school in NSW last year adapted the lyrics from Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree so children would say how happy, rather than gay, his life must be.

In 2009 the Birmingham council took creative licence to change the ending of Humpty Dumpty from couldn't "put Humpty together again" to "made Humpty happy again".

Golliwog dolls have been taken off shelves because of racism concerns and passages have been removed from Enid Blyton books because of perceived homosexual undertones between Noddy and Big Ears.

Australian National University social psychologist Michael Platow said he doubted Baa Baa Black Sheep would teach racism.

"I don't know why a child would associate a black sheep with a black man," he said.

The Office of Early Childhood Education and Care associate director-General Zea Johnston said no direction had been given and centres were responsible for their own education programs.

Pelicans has indigenous and non-indigenous children, and recognises diversity. Children play with white dolls, darker-skinned dolls and dolls of both sexes.

Ms McLaughlin said she thought changing the lyrics was a bit confusing for children. "You can get a black sheep but you can't get a rainbow sheep."


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

Let's see there are black Lab’s or black horses or black whatever. Are they going to ban the word ‘black’ because it’s racist color ????? And what if someone blacks out??? Will Black be left out of the crayon box??? Will blackboard be called “rainbow” board?

Do these morons ever realize how ridiculous they look with this nonsense?

These people are beyond belief.

Pappy isn't going to be too happy about this.

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) Not Ruling Out VP Bid: " I'm always willing to serve my country"

West speaking last November at one of the Tea Party events.

Allen West not ruling out VP bid: 'I'm always willing to serve my country'

The Hill

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) is not closing the door to being considered for the vice presidential spot, despite only having served in Congress for less than three months.

Speculation over West was sparked Friday when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), who is considering a presidential bid, said that a number of Florida GOP politicians would do well as vice president, including West.

When asked about Gingrich's comments by WPTV-TV, West asked, "He said that?"

"I have to pray about it and I have to clear it with my wife and two daughters," he added. "I never thought that seven years ago when I retired here I'd be a United States congressman, and that I'd be standing in front of your news camera. So we don't know what the future holds, but I'm always willing to serve my country."

West, 50, is one of two black Republicans elected to Congress in the 2010 midterm elections, which saw the GOP take control of the House with the backing of Tea Party activists. Florida has never had a candidate on a national ticket, according to WPTV.

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

Talk about heads exploding on the left if he was on a ticket for President or VP one day. America’s Armed Forces need to be led by a warrior , not by gaggles of liberal lawyers .They deserve it and I just thank God that he won his eledtion last Nov. and he is in Florida. Whatever he does I feel it will be the best for America.

Colonel West, I would vote for you in a heartbeat, but please, please stay away from RINO Gingrich.

Allen West: West is a patriot, he reveres the U.S. Constitution and he talks about it. He reveres our Republic and our democracy, and he talks about it.

Palin and West....sounds good. heh heh

Just thinking of West telling Biden.... not to blow sunshine up his butt. LOL! hahahha

Infamously, if you are a Liberal, and famously if you are a Conservative, West gave a belligerent Iraqi civilian police office the opportunity to tell him who was killing soldiers:

Lt. Col. Allen B. West was told the policeman was uncooperative, so he took a few of his men to the interrogation area to see for himself, where he found the prisoner being questioned by two female officers. They told him the man was belligerent, and wasn't giving them any information. (Surprise, surprise. The idiocy of having women question male Arab prisoners is apparent to everyone except the army commanders.) West entered the room, sat across from the man, drew his pistol, and placed it in his lap.

West told him he had come to either get information, or to kill him. The prisoner responded by smiling and saying, "I love you."

After about 20 more minutes of useless questioning, West then had his men take the prisoner outside. West grabbed the man, held him down near a box full of sand used to discharge jammed weapons, and said something like, "This is it. I'm going to count to five again, and if you don't give me what I want, I'm going to kill you." West held the man down, counted to five, and then fired his pistol into the discharging box about a foot from the Iraqi's head. He began talking. Over the next few minutes, the prisoner gave very specific information about the plot. He named the conspirators, gave times and dates of the assassination plan, and even described how attacks would be made.

After the Iraqi talked, there were no more attacks on U.S. forces. For this, Lt. Col. West was relieved of this campaign:

He was told he would go through an Article 32, which is about the same as a Grand Jury hearing. At the hearing he was asked if he would do the same thing again.

West replied "if it's about the lives of my men and their safety, I'd go through hell with a gasoline can."

Congress sent a letter to the Secretary of the Army in support of him with 95 signatories.

Capt. D.J. Skelton, the Army's Most Seriously Wounded Commander, Returns to Combat

Army Capt. D.J. Skelton, commander of Company E, 229th Military Intelligence Battalion, stands in front of his company with his first sergeant, Sgt. 1st Class James O. Bishop. Skelton was seriously wounded in Iraq and chose to stay on active duty.


By Fred W. Baker III.....American Forces Press Service

ABC News

Captain D. J. Skelton was wounded in Fallujah, Iraq in 2004. He is considered America’s “most wounded soldier,” and has been learning to live with his disabilities for seven long and painful years. Today he is readying to take charge of the same unit he fought with in Iraq, this time stationed in Afghanistan.

Skelton, who was then a lieutenant, and his platoon had just arrived in Fallujah at a time when the city was the hottest battlefield in Iraq.

Around 11 p.m., Skelton received a radio report from a patrol that had spotted something suspicious. After reports of explosions, Skelton told the team to wait where it was until he and another squad could get there in a Stryker armored vehicle.

As they moved closer to the location, Skelton and his team exited the Stryker. They heard gunshots, but kept on going with Skelton and radio operator Lt. Roy Rangel in the rear. Suddenly, the team was blitzed with bullets and rocket-propelled grenades.

An explosion knocked Rangel momentarily unconscious and shrapnel pierced his legs, but he resumed fighting.

Skelton, however, was badly wounded.

"I remember all my vision went out. I was completely blind. I felt no pain. It felt as if I was floating through the air on my back. My audio was still intact. ... I could hear the firefight and voices in the distance screaming, but could not make out the words. ... Then all of a sudden, I felt the most intense pain I have ever felt in my life," Skelton said.

Skelton was a Lieutenant on that November day in 2004. He says now of his injuries, it was like being a real-life Mr. Potato Head:

Skelton had dismounted the vehicle when the RPG struck. Instead of exploding, it shattered, sending shards of shrapnel into his face and body.

Before his body even hit the ground, Skelton was sprayed with rounds from an enemy AK-47 assault rifle. He doesn’t know how many bullets hit him – he didn’t count them, he jokes now.

His injuries were horrific. Shrapnel had gone through his right cheek and torn apart his jaw and the roof of his mouth.

He had also been shot in the chest and had a ‘shrapnel tunnel’ through his body.
"I wanted to die right then. I hear a voice yelling, 'Lieutenant ... Lieutenant ... oh my God ... I think the lieutenant is dead. ...' I remember being drug and put into a vehicle. ... I was screaming the whole time ... but with most of my face blown off and my mouth destroyed ... it came out as this ghostlike hollow sound ... not even human. The next thing I remember was waking up weeks later at Walter Reed Army Hospital in D.C."

A piece of shrapnel had entered Skelton's right cheek and exited his left eye socket, destroying his upper jaw and the roof of his mouth. He had taken an AK-47 round through his upper left arm and had a "shrapnel tunnel" through his left chest.

"My left arm was destroyed, but my hand was intact. I have no bone between my hand and elbow. My stomach and chest were split open where shrapnel and AK-47 rounds had shredded. My right leg had a fist-sized hole through the lower portion. All the bone was missing from my foot to my knee."

It has taken six years and more than 60 surgeries for him to recover but he still has a missing left eye, only has partial use of his left arm and limited use of his left ankle.

The roof of his mouth has gone and he cannot eat or drink without a custom prosthetic, but the Warrior said his men never quit on him, and he wasn’t going to quit his fight to heal.
‘I can’t control what happens to my body or how my body heals. ‘I can either dwell on what happened and be miserable and pissy and complain or I can look at what I do have left and figure out how to make the most of my new life… how to make what I have work while always looking for creative ways to make up the difference.’

Skelton credits his life to the medic of 1st platoon of Charlie Rock. Listen to this – the character of the magnificent men serving our country:

Skelton said he owed his life to the “amazing training and skills of my young medic, the audacity, competence, and cool under fire of the men of 1st platoon of Charlie Rock [company] who under extreme fire drug me off the battle field, administered medical aid and got me to a hospital.”

“They did it in a manner that was not because it was their job but because we cared about each other. … We loved each other. … We were family, and we would die for one another,” he said.

“I remember seeing the RTO and Lt. Skelton fly through the air,” said Alejandro Rodriguez, the platoon’s medic. An RPG had exploded a concrete pylon, blasting Skelton’s face and body with shrapnel and rock.

“Next thing I remember, I was completely blind,” Skelton recalled. “I had no feeling whatsoever. My radio guy said he’d been shot, and then I heard a voice say, ‘Oh, my God, the lieutenant’s been hit! I think he’s dead!’ All of a sudden, there was a rush of feeling, which was probably the most intense pain I will ever in my entire life feel.”

Skelton was then sprayed with several enemy AK-47 rounds as he was dragged out of the kill zone, his body armor stopping at least one bullet to the chest. But it was the shrapnel that did the most damage. He begged his men to leave him behind.

The Army did not want to retain Skelton. He found a commander in Missile Defense who accepted him for duty at Camp Greeley, Alaska. It wasn’t the infantry, but it bought him some time. He used that time to learn everything he could about the way the Army worked:

He started studying policy and regulations and the relationship between the Defense Department and the Army. He also studied congressional procedures and how they relate to the military.

Skelton started writing recommendations on how to keep soldiers on active duty and how to improve wounded warrior care, and began e-mailing them to everyone he had met during his recovery. He also was becoming well versed on the medical board process, the relationship between unit commanders and hospitals and the transition between active-duty care and the Department of Veterans Affairs care system, Skelton said.

Then a huge opportunity came his way, and Skelton had a meeting with Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld:

After the meeting, Skelton was offered a job in Rumsfeld’s office as the first person at his level to look hard at the gaps in care. Skelton sat on multiple committees and served as a military advisor to Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England.
Skelton had a front-row seat to history-making changes in wounded warrior care that swept across the Defense Department and, to an extent, the Veterans Administration. He regularly spoke with top DoD and congressional leaders, and even the president.

It was now 2007, and Skelton said he knew his active duty time was borrowed time. He felt he would be forced to resign because of his physical limitations:

He was a former enlisted interrogator and had a passion for American-Chinese relations, so he decided he wanted to return to the Army in the foreign area officer program. He could continue his education and learn advanced Chinese.

When Skelton approached Army leadership about staying on active duty this time, he received a different response. The request was granted almost overnight.

Skelton went on to command Company E, 229th Military Intelligence Battalion, at the Defense Language Institute’s Foreign Language Center.

General Peter Chiarelli, Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, says not all wounded soldiers who are able to go back to service, are fit for combat:

Not all of the soldiers returned to duty are deemed fit for combat duty, and at first Skelton fell into this category. But with determination, and the right qualifications, he was granted an exception to not only return to active duty but active duty combat command.

Seeing Clearly - Through One Eye

The Army's new attitude of care is more reflective of its values, Skelton said.

"The Army ethos is to never leave a fallen comrade behind. What better way to live that ethos than to show the force out there in the fight that, God forbid, if something happens to you … we will not leave you?" he said.

Skelton said he still feels the pain of his injuries every day. He has to have a neighbor or a friend button his sleeve, because his left hand will never improve. He doesn't wear an eye patch, he said, because he wants people to see the scars of war.

"I'm having fun. I'm being challenged intellectually. I'm being challenged physically and mentally," he said. "I look forward every morning to putting on the uniform and coming to work."

Also, Skelton said, he has found that fellow soldiers are inspired by his continued service and are more inclined to come to him with their problems, knowing he has had to work through his own.

"We all go through struggles in life," he said. "And none are more severe or bigger than others. They're just different."

Despite his positive outlook, Skelton said he is not sure he would want to go through the experience again. But, then again, he wouldn't rule it out. It has given him a perspective that promises hope and contentment in life, he said.

"Someone once said to me, 'You see things more clearly with one eye than I do with two,'" Skelton said. "I believe that each and every one of us should do what we love to do. And if you wake up one day and you don't love what you're doing, think about changing."

The Captain runs 5 miles a day in northern California. He runs marathons. He is learning to surf. He’s fluent in Mandarin Chinese and has a tour in China as a foreign area officer already on his resume. Skelton is a long-time rock climber, and he is back at it these days. Since his injuries, he has held classes to teach amputees how to climb. He kayaks, ice climbs, and he co-founded, and is President of Paradox Sports, a nonprofit dedicated to helping wounded service members learn new sports or get back to the sports they loved before being wounded. He graduated West Point! He is one of the youngest grads of Harvard’s Senior Executive Fellowship program. He is a Military Fellow at the Center for a New American Security.

In a few weeks, Captain D. J. Skelton will command the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment in southern Afghanistan.

AFL-CIO Top THUG Boss Richard Trumka Says Raising Taxes Best Way to Create Jobs

AFL-CIO Chief: Raising Taxes Will Create Jobs

What's the best way to get Americans back to work?

Raise taxes, according to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Specifically, he wants to raise the federal gas tax as a means to fund infrastructure spending. "We need a dedicated source of revenue to create infrastructure in this country," he tells Aaron Task in the accompanying clip.

"We need to create jobs. The best way to do that is through infrastructure development." Simply maintaining the existing infrastructure in this country will cost $2.2 trillion over five years, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. That doesn't include Obama's objective of high-speed rails and green energy projects.

Trumka didn't say specifically how much he would raise the gas tax, but mentioned he's shown the President a $256 billion plan to improve infrastructure. If every billion spent on infrastructure creates 35,000 jobs, as he claims, this package would create close to 9 million jobs over the next five years.

The idea would also improve America's fiscal and competitive future, says Trumka. "There's also a downstream effect, you put people back to work, they pay taxes, they don't use services, they're contributing, other jobs are created along the way as well," he explains.

These guys really don’t care about “jobs” as much as they care about sucking as much life out of their fellow citizens as possible.

"Revenue source", "Create infrastructure", "Infrastructure development". These are all the latest craze in left-wing socialist terminology, used by the lefties, which really means just more socialist tax & spend programs.

Trumpka, go hold your head underwater until the bubbles stop. Please!!

You Work For Us !!....Public Sector Unions vs. America

'Our message to politicians is simple, lead with real solutions or get the hell out of the way'

The lavish compensation programs offered to public employee union members is bankrupting our nation. Something must be done now to break the unions' stranglehold on our tax dollars.

RNC: Stop Obama And His Union Bosses

Democrats and public employee unions continue to obstruct Republican reforms to tackle the debt at all levels of government and move the country forward. Stop Obama and his union bosses today.

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

Corrupt Democrats have succeeded in forcing all of us , as a Conservative American, to pay for their party. Our founding fathers would be rolling over in their graves.

Discontinuing the forced support of union employees by taxpayers would be a sound first step.

Wisconsin Assembly Passes Walker's Bill!!!!

Shouting "Shame!" on Wisconsin Assembly floor before "union-busting" budget bill vote

This is video from the gallery of the WI Assembly past 1 AM in the morning on 2/25/2011. The Democrats have just been told by the speaker pro tempore there will be no more debate before the vote, even though there were more than a dozen Democrats in the queue to speak. They shout "Shame! Shame! Shame!"


Wisconsin Assembly Charges Toward Vote on Budget Bill, Senate Remains Stuck

FOX News

Wisconsin Republicans in the state Assembly charged toward a vote on their controversial budget bill Thursday after compelling Democrats to limit debate, though the Senate remained stuck on account of 14 boycotting lawmakers.

The modest breakthrough on the Assembly side was announced at dawn following more than 42 hours of debate which began Tuesday morning. Under the plan, the Republican majority will allow another 38 amendments to be considered, for no more than 10 minutes apiece. That puts the Assembly on track for a vote perhaps as early as midday.

Though the announcement was pitched as a deal, state Democrats said Republicans were unilaterally bringing the debate to a close. One aide in Minority Leader Peter Barca's office said Republicans gave the Democrats two options: debate 38 additional amendments or end debate immediately.

Democrats, who are in the minority, don't have the votes to stop the bill once the vote occurs.

The movement on the Assembly side, though, stood in contrast to the situation in the Senate, where 14 Democratic lawmakers were still absent, blocking a vote on Gov. Scott Walker's plan to curb union benefits and collective-bargaining rights.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald's office confirmed to Fox News that state patrol officers had once again been dispatched to the homes of Democratic senators in the hope of persuading them to return. However, one of the 14 absent lawmakers said the caucus is still out of state and will not be swayed by police showing up at their doors. Democratic Sen. Jon Erpenbach said the senators will not be returning Thursday.

Passage of the bill in the Assembly would be a victory for Republicans and Walker, but the measure must still clear the Senate.

The battle over labor rights has been heating up across the country, as new Republican majorities tackle budget woes in several states. The GOP efforts have sparked huge protests from unions and their supporters and led Democrats in Wisconsin and Indiana to flee their states to block measures.

Walker reiterated Wednesday that public workers must make concessions to avoid thousands of government layoffs as the state grapples with a $137 million shortfall in its current budget and a projected $3.6 billion hole in the next two-year budget.

The marathon session in the Assembly was grand political theater, with exhausted lawmakers limping around the chamber, rubbing their eyes and yawning as Wednesday night dragged on.

Around midnight, Rep. Dean Kaufert, R-Neenah, accused Democrats of putting on a show for the protesters. Democrats leapt up and started shouting.

"I'm sorry if democracy is a little inconvenient and you had to stay up two nights in a row," Pocan said. "Is this inconvenient? Hell, yeah! It's inconvenient. But we're going to be heard!"


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

It passed It Passed!

Just saw the 2:30 am ET breaking news update on Fox News... the Wisconsin Assembly did indeed pass Gov. Walker's bill! WOO HOO!!!

The Dems would have walked out but GOP Stopped Debate and took the vote, Quick and sweet! Dems yelling shame, shame, shame, over and over, while Elvis(GOP) left the building!

This was the first huddle! Now the Senate still must pass the bill. This was just the Assembly. It has to go to the
Senate and then on to the Gov. But the way it passed was awesome! They may be voting on the bill later today.

This is a great move forward for freedom and liberty. Congratulations Wisconsin, and may the rest of the states emulate you!

Union Thugs At Union Solidarity Rally Against Gov. Scott Walker

An angry union member yelling at the top of his lungs at the Maryland solidarity union rally against Gov. Scott Walker and his common sense policies.


The eruption starts at 7:32 in this video..........Assault on Innocent Cameraman.......An unhinged union goon attacked a reporter in Rhode Island screaming, “I’ll f**k you in the ass, you faggot”

Assault on an innocent cameraman by an 'alleged' union member at the Rhode Island Statehouse on February 22, 2011. this was an unprovoked attack on a citizen documenting the rally for public access TV in Rhode Island. One of many unprovoked attacks that day.

The cameraman who was accosted in the video is Adam Cole. He works for “We the People of Rhode Island,” a public access TV show in Rhode Island. Another witness and citizen journalist at the rally who had a video camera, Randy Swanson of Oathkeepers-Rhode Island, filmed the confrontation.


“The Tea Party is a bunch of dick-sucking corporate butt-lickers who want to crush the working people of this country.”

And he’s just getting started.

This video was shot on 2/17/2011 in the Rotunda of the Ohio Statehouse. It chronicles Union member intimidation tactics used in their opposition of SB5 which, if passed, will help to straighten out Ohio's ailing budget mess and also align inflated Union salaries and benefit packages with the lesser compensated private sector.


Columbus, Ohio, Statehouse rally on Senate Bill 5, February 17, 2011. Union members flip off taxpayers and call Tea Party members racists and tea baggers.


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

Never...Not once... did any camera or reporter find or hear a Tea Party supporter - at any rally, use such derogatory, vulgar language. You know me pretty well, I am not a prude, I don't care if someone uses the F word, heck I have used it sometimes on here. That is not a big deal to me, but what these union people are saying is beyond that kind of thing.

Whew these people are actually scary.

Saudi National Living in Texas Arrested on Charge of Attempted Use of Weapon of Mass Destruction


Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 20, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and resident of Lubbock, Texas

A Saudi National has been arrested and is being charged with planning to use a “Weapon of Mass Destruction” against several possible targets – including the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush.

The 20 year-old man – Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari – was attending school in the Lubbock, Texas area, having only arrived six weeks ago. Al-Dasari reportedly had been trying to purchase materials that could have been used to make weapons. This report says Al-Dasari may have been looking into using “realistic infant dolls” as way of concealing explosives.

Dallas Target: Texas Resident Arrested on Charge of Attempted Use of Weapon of Mass Destruction

Suspect Allegedly Purchased Bomb Materials and Researched U.S. Targets

KDAF TV Dallas Fort Worth

Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 20, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and resident of Lubbock, Texas, was arrested late yesterday by FBI agents in Texas on a federal charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction in connection with his alleged purchase of chemicals and equipment necessary to make an improvised explosive device (IED) and his research of potential U.S. targets.

The arrest and the criminal complaint, which was unsealed in the Northern District of Texas, were announced by David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security; James T. Jacks, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas; and Robert E. Casey Jr., Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Dallas Field Division.

Aldawsari is expected to make his initial appearance in federal court in Lubbock at 9:00 a.m. on Friday morning. Aldawsari, who was lawfully admitted into the United States in 2008 on a student visa and is enrolled at South Plains College near Lubbock, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

According to the affidavit filed in support of the complaint, Aldawsari has been researching online how to construct an IED using several chemicals as ingredients. He has also acquired or taken a substantial step toward acquiring most of the ingredients and equipment necessary to construct an IED and he has conducted online research of several potential U.S. targets, the affidavit alleges. In addition, he has allegedly described his desire for violent jihad and martyrdom in blog postings and a personal journal.

“As alleged in the complaint, Aldawsari purchased ingredients to construct an explosive device and was actively researching potential targets in the United States. Thanks to the efforts of many agents, analysts and prosecutors, this plot was thwarted before it could advance further,” said Assistant Attorney General Kris. “This case serves as another reminder of the need for continued vigilance both at home and abroad.”
“Yesterday’s arrest demonstrates the need for and the importance of vigilance and the willingness of private individuals and companies to ask questions and contact the authorities when confronted with suspicious activities. Based upon reports from the public, Aldawsari’s plot was uncovered and thwarted. We’re confident we have neutralized the alleged threat posed by this defendant. Those reports resulted in the initiation of a complex and far-reaching investigation requiring almost around the clock work by hundreds of dedicated FBI agents, analysts, prosecutors and others. Their effort is another example of the work being done to protect our country and its citizens. These individuals are deserving of our respect and gratitude,” said U.S. Attorney Jacks.

“This arrest and criminal charge is a result of the success of the FBI's counterterrorism strategy, which is to detect, penetrate, and disrupt terrorist plots in the United States and against U.S. interests abroad. In this case, FBI Agents and other FBI experts worked tirelessly to neutralize the imminent terrorist threat described in the criminal complaint. The public can be justifiably proud of the national security expertise shown by the FBI in this investigation,” said Special Agent in Charge Casey.

Purchases of Chemical Ingredients and Other Equipment

The affidavit alleges that on Feb. 1, 2011, a chemical supplier reported to the FBI a suspicious attempted purchase of concentrated phenol by a man identifying himself as Khalid Aldawsari. According to the affidavit, phenol is a toxic chemical with legitimate uses, but can also be used to make the explosive trinitrophenol, also known as T.N.P., or picric acid. The affidavit alleges that other ingredients typically used with phenol to make picric acid, or T.N.P., are concentrated sulfuric and nitric acids.

Aldawsari allegedly attempted to have the phenol order shipped to a freight company so it could be held for him there, but the freight company returned the order to the supplier and called the police. Later, Aldawsari falsely told the supplier he was associated with a university and wanted the phenol for “off-campus, personal research.” Frustrated by questions being asked over his phenol order, Aldawsari cancelled his order and later e-mailed himself instructions for producing phenol. The affidavit alleges that in December 2010, he successfully purchased concentrated nitric and sulfuric acids.

According to the affidavit, legally authorized electronic surveillance revealed that Aldawsari used various e-mail accounts in researching explosives and targets, and often sent emails to himself as part of this process. On Feb. 11, 2011, for instance, he allegedly e-mailed himself a recipe for picric acid, which the e-mail describes as a “military explosive.” He also allegedly sent himself an e-mail on Oct. 19, 2010 that contained information on the material required for Nitro Urea, how to prepare it, and the advantages of using it.

The affidavit alleges that Aldawsari also e-mailed himself instructions on how to convert a cellular phone into a remote detonator and how to prepare a booby-trapped vehicle using items available in every home. One e-mail allegedly contained a message stating that “one operation in the land of the infidels is equal to ten operations against occupying forces in the land of the Muslims.” During December 2010 and January 2011, Aldawsari allegedly purchased many other items, including a gas mask, a Hazmat suit, a soldering iron kit, glass beakers and flasks, wiring, a stun gun, clocks and a battery tester.

Searches of Aldawsari’s Residence

Two legally authorized searches of Aldawsari’s apartment conducted by the FBI in February 2011 indicated that the concentrated sulfuric and nitric acids; the beakers and flasks; wiring; Hazmat suit; and clocks were present in Aldawsari’s residence.

FBI agents also found a notebook at Aldawsari’s residence that appeared to be a diary or journal. According to the affidavit, excerpts from the journal indicate that Aldawsari had been planning to commit a terrorist attack in the United States for years. One entry describes how Aldawsari sought and obtained a particular scholarship because it allowed him to come directly to the United State and helped him financially, which he said “will help tremendously in providing me with the support I need for Jihad.” The entry continues: “And now, after mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for Jihad.”

In another entry, Aldawsari allegedly wrote that he was near to reaching his goal and near to getting weapons to use against infidels and their helpers. He also listed a “synopsis of important steps” that included obtaining a forged U.S. birth certificate; renting a car; using different driver’s licenses for each car rented; putting bombs in cars and taking them to different places during rush hour; and leaving the city for a safe place.

Research on Potential Targets

According to the affidavit, Aldawsari conducted research on various targets and e-mailed himself information on these locations and people. One of the documents he sent himself, with the subject line listed as “Targets,” allegedly contained the names and home addresses of three American citizens who had previously served in the U.S. military and had been stationed for a time at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

In another e-mail titled “NICE TARGETS 01,” Aldawsari allegedly sent himself the names of 12 reservoir dams in Colorado and California. In another e-mail to himself, titled “NICE TARGETS,” he listed two categories of targets: hydroelectric dams and nuclear power plants. On Feb. 6, 2011, the affidavit alleges, Aldawsari sent himself an e-mail titled “Tyrant’s House,” in which he listed the Dallas address for former President George W. Bush. The affidavit also alleges that Aldawsari conducted research that could indicate his consideration of the use of infant dolls to conceal explosives and possible targeting of a nightclub with an explosive concealed in a backpack.

The affidavit also alleges that Aldawsari created a blog in which he posted extremist messages. In one posting, he expressed dissatisfaction with current conditions of Muslims and vowed jihad and martyrdom. “You who created mankind….grant me martyrdom for Your sake and make jihad easy for me only in Your path,” he wrote.

Saudi Citizen in Texas Charged in Suspected Bombing Plot

FOX News

Aldawsari, 20, entered the U.S. in October 2008 from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to study at Texas Tech University, then transferred earlier this year to nearby South Plains College.

Federal prosecutors say Aldawsari had been researching online how to construct an improvised explosive device using several chemicals as ingredients. Authorities say Aldawsari's diary indicated the young man had been plotting an attack for years and obtained a scholarship so he could come directly to the United State to carry out jihad.

"After mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for jihad," the student wrote in his journal, according to court documents.

In e-mails Aldawsari apparently sent himself, he listed the names of 12 reservoir dams in Colorado and California. He also wrote an e-mail that mentioned "Tyrant's House" with the address of President Bush's home. The FBI's affidavit said he considered using infant dolls to hide explosives and was possibly targeting a nightclub with a backpack filled with explosives.

One of the chemical companies, Carolina Biological Supply of Burlington, N.C., reported suspicious purchases by the student to the FBI on Feb. 1.


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

George W. Bush was on this terrorist’s list of possible targets. God bless and protect Pres. George W. Bush and his family.

Thank God they caught this terrorists before he went through with his plan. And thank God for that company notifying the FBI.

Our enemy knows us well and uses everything they possibly can to their advantage.

Janet Napolitano Dispatches 21-man Team to Respond to Issa Document Demands

Janet Napolitano dispatches 21-man team to respond to Issa document demands

The Daily Caller

By Jonathan Strong

With the showdown between top GOP oversight official Rep. Darrell Issa and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Sec. Janet Napolitano heating up, Napolitano has dispatched a 21-man team to respond to Issa’s document and testimony requests, a DHS source says.

The team includes 15 lawyers and six “support staff” who have logged over 600 hours working to find documents and review them before sending more than 3,000 pages to Issa, the source says.

Issa is requesting documents from DHS about political interference with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the agency.

Tuesday, Issa subpoenaed the testimony of two key career officials at DHS, the first time Issa is using the force of law to compel information from the Obama administration since Republicans took control of the House.

Issa spokesman Kurt Bardella said the oversight panel chairman’s concern was not with the pace of the document delivery, for which the 21-man team has been dispatched, but with the agency’s reluctance to allow key officials to conduct transcribed interviews.

“Our issue is with the interviews,” Bardella said.

Still, the 21-man team shows Napolitano, after initially snubbing Issa on his first two deadlines for the release of documents, has put significant resources into cooperating with newly empowered House Republicans.

“DHS respects the oversight authority of the U.S. Congress and has been cooperating with the committee on this inquiry. We are working to expeditiously accommodate their requests and will continue to cooperate,” said DHS spokesman Matt Chandler.

Issa has a whistleblower at the DHS giving him an inside information on the FOIA process at the agency.

At the September briefing by DHS Chief Privacy Officer Mary Ellen Callahan, Callahan ardently assured Issa nothing was awry with the DHS FOIA process after the Associated Press reported sensitive information requests – those from lawmakers, watchdog groups, and reporters — were subjected to unusual scrutiny by Obama’s political advisers.

But Issa says he obtained documents from a career employee at DHS that called the briefing into question.

Since then, he has been pushing DHS to release documents and allow key officials to provide testimony to the oversight panel.

Though Issa and Cummings provided highly contrasting takes on the background circumstances leading up to the subpoena Thursday, the issue is moot in the sense that now that Issa has issued the subpoena, the testimony of the officials is required by law.


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

Good grief, a 21 man team to respond to Issa. If Janet, and Obama and the rest of his people had to pay for these 21 people out of their own pocket this would not be happening. This is BS and they know they can bring in as many lawyers they want and not have to pay one penny for them. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Obama and his people know no shame.

Every such shaming amounts to less and less support for Rats.

Dictator Obama Decrees Defense of Marriage Act Unconstitutional


Obama gets out of way of gay marriage

Stops defense of federal law

Washington Times

The Obama administration announced Wednesday that it has pulled its legal support for the federal Defense of Marriage Act, stating that the law fails to meet constitutional scrutiny standards and therefore the administration is under no obligation to defend it.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement released Wednesday that President Obama has decided that his administration “will cease defense of Section 3,” which states that marriage is between one man and one woman.

“The President has concluded that given a number of factors, including a documented history of discrimination, classifications based on sexual orientation should be subject to a more heightened standard of scrutiny,” Mr. Holder said. “The President has also concluded that Section 3 of DOMA, as applied to legally married same-sex couples, fails to meet that standard and is therefore unconstitutional. Given that conclusion, the President has instructed the Department not to defend the statute in such cases. I fully concur with the President’s determination.”

The move comes as a huge victory for supporters of same-sex marriage, LGBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) Americans, who supported the president in his 2008 election campaign but have criticized the administration for its defense of DOMA in the face of recent lawsuits

Critics said the announcement makes it clear that the Obama administration has finished evolving and that it clearly favors legalization of same-sex marriage.

“The president has finally come out of the closet on gay marriage,” said Andy Blom, executive director of the American Principles Project. “After months of obfuscation and wishy-washy answers, the president has made it clear that he has no regard for the voice of the people, who have shown in election after election that they support traditional marriage.”

Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, called it a “monumental decision” and urged Congress to “not waste another taxpayer dollar defending this patently unconstitutional law.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, said in a tweet that she was “thrilled” with the decision.

A spokesman for House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, asked why the president had chosen to “stir up a controversial issue” in the middle of a budget crisis.

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

Now the Great Obama is deciding what laws passed by Congress are, or are not, Constitutional. "Obama decided" "Obama determined" the story says. So now obama is the Supreme Court of One.

This is the kind of disregard for the law that Chavez, Castro and other bullying autocrats display.

Obama does not have the authority to determine CONSTIUTIONALITY. The boy king is still defying the Federal courts on his illegal offshore oil drilling ban, and the Fed court declaring Obamacare unconstitutional.

ObamaCamp! Organizing for America Will Deploy Young Cadres on ‘Summer Organizing Fellowships’

ObamaCamp! Organizing for America Will Deploy Young Cadres on ‘Summer Organizing Fellowships’

The Blaze

As Winter turns to Spring, President Barack Obama’s campaign organization is setting its sights on the Summer to recruit and train an army of new community organizers, the Los Angeles Times reports.....Obama recruits an army of community organizers to carry his 'movement forward for years to come' February 23, 2011

Presumably, Organizing for America’s efforts to “strengthen our democracy” will likely also coincide with Obama’s re-election plans in 2012. However, the latest recruitment message from OFA goes beyond politics and campaigning to emphasize plans for a new military-style boot camp for grassroots organizers, a “program that aims to put boots on the ground and help foster a new generation of leaders — not just to help win elections but to strengthen our democracy in communities across the country.”
If you apply and are selected, you’ll be trained in the basic organizing principles that have helped to build and power this movement, and you‘ll be assigned to a specific community where you’ll get to work organizing supporters.

Movements are built and sustained by ordinary people taking responsibility for organizing their fellow citizens to make their voices heard. We‘re looking for individuals who are prepared to work to help support the President’s agenda — and lay the groundwork that will help us win a new set of elections.

OFA’s “Summer Organizing Fellowship” also offers college credit in exchange for participation in the two-month volunteer program.

“Effective organizing doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It takes commitment, time, and hard work to build a movement around a cause,” the message says, although it does not identify any particular “cause” other than promoting Obama and his agenda.

The emailed recruitment message went out Tuesday night to millions of Obama supporters and past donors.

The fellows “will be assigned to a specific community,” the message said, “where they’ll work to organize supporters street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood.” Their jobs will involve recruiting additional Obama workers, managing Obama-related events, knocking on doors to talk about Obama and to “lay new groundwork to carry this movement forward for years to come.”

“In the end, their work will take our grassroots power to an impressive new level,” the message boasts.

The Times adds:

The appeal cites as one role model Nikki Giancola who underwent the training, then quit her middle school teacher’s job to become a regional Obama field director and the satisfaction she felt “in helping millions of people.”

Another community organizer, Paras Patel, tells of one unforgettable moment actually meeting the leader for whom they all labor, President Obama. “He shook my hand,” Patel recounts, “and told me that he was proud of me.”

No mention of an Obama organizer flag, uniform — or salute.

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

So it begins......!!

Under Obama, we have record unemployment, record spending and deficits, states in bankruptcy, record homelessness, discord in the streets, and when the price of gas sky rockets because of his lack of foreign leadership - it's all going to get 100 times worse. And HE thinks he has a chance to win a second term???? I don't think so ! Ask the hard working people in the Gulf, the Oil Rig workers, my guess is they would rather give obama the middle finger then vote for him. I know I feel that way!

Awesome Megyn Kelly Confronts Milwaukee Union President Over ‘Sick’ Teachers

Megyn Kelly Confronts Milwaukee Union President Over ‘Sick’ Teachers

The Blaze

During an interview Tuesday, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly repeatedly tried to nail down an answer on whether Milwaukee Teachers Union president Mike Langyel condoned teachers using fake medical excuses to get out of work to attend protests in Madison.

But when the union prez refused to address her question directly and suggested her question was “the wrong one to be asking,” Kelly laid down the law, reminding Langyel of his role as her show’s guest.

“For better or for worse, I’m the anchor and you’re the guest,” she said. “So I’ll come up with the questions and you can answer them or not.”

Wild Thing's comment......

God bless Megyn!!! Go Megyn! That fool was a complete tool….a very useless one however!

The unions are so out of control in this country. Governor Walker is doing a great thing for America.

I love when Megyn Kelly thunders away on people. Many of them forget she’s an attorney and has plenty of experience asking the questions especially from hostile “witnesses” in corporate law.

This guy is guilty of condoning fraud on the part of the doctors who gave the notes and the teachers using those notes. All parties should lose their licenses and jobs. Fraud is fraud regardless of ones intentions. A union boss dodging questions should be nothing new.

Rhema Marvanne Sings a Tribute for Soldiers

Rhema Marvanne Sings a Tribute for Soldiers

At just 8 years old, Rhema Marvanne sings her song as a tribute to the soldiers.

Rhema Marvanne was born 9/15/02, lost her mother, Wendi Marvanne Voraritskul, to ovarian cancer on November 8, 2008. Rhema lives in Carrollton, TX and attends The Branch Church (Vista Ridge Campus)

The story behind this most incredible little girl is heart wrenching, tragic, and beautiful…

Source...End of Days blog

Rhema Marvanne was born September 15, 2002. Her Father is Teton Marvanne and Mother is Wendi Marvanne. She was born at Trinity Hospital in Carrollton, TX. She was carried to term but was still very small. Rhema weighted 4.11 lbs and had to stay in the NICU for 3 weeks before she was taken home.

Rhema aspires to follow in the footsteps of her late Mother, Wendi Marvanne, who battled ovarian cancer when Rhema was just 3 years old. When Rhema was only 6 years old her Mother went back to heaven on 11/8/08…

Rhema’s memories with her Mom were pleasant memories but revolved around surgery, multiple chemotherapy treatments, sickness and struggle. Wendi was a strong believer in God and loved him with all her heart. She never complained or questioned God. She even encouraged others while she herself battled cancer.

During the last few months of her life, Rhema and Teton took care of Wendi. Rhema spent almost every hour with her mother, especially the last 2 weeks untill Wendi took her last breath. When her husband, Teton, asked Wendi what her greatest accomplishment was, she said, “Rhema”…

Rhema began singing the same time she began talking. It was less than a year ago Rhema recorded her first song, Amazing Grace and quickly became an Internet singing sensation. She takes tremendous inspiration from her mother, Wendi Marvanne Voraritskul, who sadly lost her battle with ovarian cancer in 2008. It is Rhema's greatest hope to make her mother proud, both as a singer and as a servant of God, which is why she also performs at churches, non-profit organizations, charities, hospitals and special events…

This amazing litte powerhouse singer can bring an entire auditorium to tears every single time she sings this wonderful song…

What we find amazing is how She and her Father still press on in the absnence of the once vibrant, close, and loving relationship they shared with her mother who also was an incredible human being…

Our hat is off to Rhema's Father Teton, how he is able to get through each day must be nothing short of a miracle, he appears to be a wonderful and loving Father and Rhema is a very lucky litte girl to have a Daddy like him…

Charles Krauthammer About Obama on Libya: He Says Nothing


"This is a president who went around the world in the first year in office saying how he would-he was raising the moral standard of the United States in the world after the travesties as he saw it or the Bush Administration.

Here he is, he has said nothing on what's happening in Libya which is a case of brutality and mere genocide to use the word of one of Qaddafi's own diplomats. The shooting of demonstrators from helicopter gunships, the strafing of demonstrators from bombers, astonishing, it doesn't happen to anyone else

Here was a president, our president who went out there on television again and again on Egypt which in comparison on what's happening in Libya was Boy Scout treatment of those demonstrations...

Why can't the president find a voice, for reasons of morality simply of upholding our traditions. Secondly, our of strategic interests. Here are the most anti-American regimes and he says nothing"

Wild Thing's comment......

Glad he pointed this out. Obama has his favorites and Remember Qaddafi is the one that said several times...."Obama is a Muslim".

When does this hit the treason mark in the justice system? It is obvious that obama is trying to stir up a revolution within the United States .

Obama working with those who wish to destroy and overthrow the nations free will; while off of Somalia the pirates have executed the four captives and the president will do nothing – they were christian missionaries on a round the world trip.

Somali Pirates Kill 4 American Hostages Off Somalia

Owners Jean and Scott Adam and two other people on board, Phyllis Macay and Bob Riggle, had been traveling with yachts participating in the Blue Water Rally since their departure from Phuket, Thailand.


The four Americans aboard a yacht hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia are dead.

Hijacked last Friday off Oman, the Quest was being piloted toward the Somali coast – and was being shadowed by a U.S. Navy warship.

CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports that gunshots aboard the yacht were heard, and the warship took action.

All 4 Americans were dead, killed by their captors.

Los Angeles Times

The bodies of the four Americans are on board the carrier Enterprise off the Horn of Africa, according to Central Command. The names of the Southern California couple are Scott and Jean Adam, boaters who were based out of Orange County.

Four U.S. Navy ships had been shadowing the Quest after it was taken over by the pirates, Mattis said. While negotiations were underway to gain the release of the Americans, U.S. forces responded to gunfire aboard the Quest. The four Americans had been shot, Mattis said.

Two of the pirates were killed by U.S. forces and 13 captured, Mattis said. After boarding the Quest, military personnel found the bodies of two other pirates. The incident occurred about 1 a.m. EST.

Four Americans Killed on Yacht Hijacked by Somali Pirates

FOX News

Four Americans aboard a yacht hijacked by Somali pirates have been killed, Fox News has confirmed. U.S. forces responded to gunfire aboard the yacht Quest at approximately 1 a.m. Tuesday, but discovered all four hostages had been shot by their captors. Despite attempts to save their lives, all four hostages died of their wounds. “We express our deepest condolences for the innocent lives callously lost aboard the Quest,” said Gen. James N. Mattis, U.S. Central Command Commander in a news release. Two pirates died during the confrontation and 13 were captured and detained, along with two pirates already in custody. U.S. forces also found the remains of two other pirates already dead aboard the vessel and believe a total of 19 pirates were involved in the hijacking. The yacht Quest was hijacked on Friday off the coast of Oman and U.S. forces had been closely monitoring the vessel.

They were part of a sailing race and had decided to make a side trip through the Indian Ocean. They sailed a lot and had sailed round the world a couple of times before that.

The couple always brought Bibles with them, not for distribution to the Islamic world, but to give to poor churches that they encountered when they stopped at port. They had been doing this for several years; it was a sailboat, so they probably didn’t have thousands of Bibles with them, but just a small number to distribute to these churches which are often too poor to buy their own for their congregations.

The Adams have been sailing the world with a yacht full of Bibles since 2004.

The Adams -- who are members of the Marina del Rey Yacht Club in Marina del Rey, Calif. -- run a Bible ministry, according to their website, and have been distributing Bibles to schools and churches in remote villages in areas including the Fiji Islands, Alaska, New Zealand, Central America and French Polynesia.


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

They were actually out in the Indian Ocean - these pirates range as far as 600 miles away from their nests.

But it doesn’t matter why the sailors were there. We cannot simply declare a part of the sea to be off-limits to all except Muslim pirates. IMO we cannot start treating the open sea like some pirate’s personal fiefdom.

Also, the message must go out: mess with US citizens, get dead. But that’s not going to happen with obama in office. We would have have to wait for the Islamist terrorist lover is out of OUR White House for that to happen.

Hardline Muslim Cleric Anjem Choudary Wants Sharia Law in USA and He Plans Protest At WH

Muslim Cleric Plans Protest at the White House; Invites Americans to Embrace Islam as “Alternative to Freedom”

Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson interviewing radical Muslim Cleric Anjem Choudary yesterday about his plan to come to the United States and hold a protest in front of the White House on March 3.

Choudary said he hopes to invite “the Muslims and non-Muslims in America to talk about Islam as an alternative to the freedom, democracy, and man-made law that you have at the current time in America.” Choudary said that the problems in America and around the world today are because “we don’t have the Sharia implemented on state level.”

Choudary does not try in the slightest to hide the fact that he wants Sharia Law to rule over the entire world.Those who want Sharia Law do not see Islam as compatible with “Freedom” and “Democracy.” As Choudary said, they want to present Islam “as an alternative to freedom and democracy.”

Muslim Cleric Plans White House Protest in Attempt to Spread Sharia Law in America

FOX News

A hardline Muslim cleric who sparked anger across the U.S. with his anti-American comments in a television interview this month is to hold a protest outside the White House.

British extremist Anjem Choudary - who once said 'the flag of Islam will fly over the White House' - has announced he will lead a demonstration calling on Muslims to establish the Sharia law across America.

The rally, planned for March 3, is to take place just weeks after his on-screen row with Fox News presenter Sean Hannity.

The event is a rally, a call for the Sharia, a call for the Muslims to rise up and establish the Islamic state in America,” Choudary told London’s Daily Mail in an interview.

more about Anjem Choudary’s rally plans from the Daily Mail

Mr Choudary, 43, called Americans 'the biggest criminals in the world today.'

The former leader of outlawed group Islam4UK told the Daily Star 'we expect thousands to come out and support us.'

Mr Choudary said the March rally was organised by the Islamic Thinkers society, an extremist group based in New York.

Two other British extremists, Abu Izzadeen and Sayful Islam, have also been asked to speak at the demonstration.

Izzadeen is the hate preacher who caused fury last year when he called British soldiers 'murderers' the day he was released from jail after a three-and-a-half year sentence for inciting terrorism.

Mr Choudary told the newspaper: 'The event is a rally, a call for the Sharia, a call for the Muslims to rise up and ­establish the Islamic state in America.'

However, whether the three will be able to enter the U.S., especially Izzadeen, remains to be seen. Even a tourist visa requires applicants to answer questions on whether they have been involved in acts of terrorism or plan to commit crimes in the U.S.

Last October, he told an ABC chat show that 'one day the flag of Islam will fly over the White House.'

'We are going to address ­corruption in the Senate, corrupt foreign ­policy, the mayhem around the ­Muslim world, the drug and ­alcohol culture, ­promiscuity and the pandemic of crime in America.

'It is only right the call is made in the heart of Western ­civilisation in front of the biggest pharaoh that ­exists today, which is Barack Obama.'

He added: 'I think the American people’s hearts and minds are open to receive Islam as an alternative way of life. We expect thousands to come out and support us.'


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

I refuse to submit to sharia law ifi obama ever does make it happen. I would fight back.

"However, whether the three will be able to enter the U.S., especially Izzadeen, remains to be seen."

I sure hope this can be stopped and not allow any of them in .

CAIR Confronts Congressman Lt Col Allen West At Townhall Meeting Hosted By West

At a townhall meeting hosted by Congressman Allen West on Monday evening in Pompano Beach, the Q&A segment of the meeting featured a Koran wielding Nezar Hamze, Executive Director of the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Hamze confronted Congressman West and asked him to point out where in the Koran does it give marching orders to Muslims “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people”. West quickly pointed out that the Koran was written long before America even existed and that it does indeed tell believers to kill infidels, and then proceeded to chronicle a lengthy list of historical Muslim acts of aggression. Congressman West closed his retort by referencing the Fort Hood shootings and 9-11 attacks, saying that his first hand experiences on the battlefield has given him insight into the tactics that Islamists use.

The diolague continues and an exasperated West finally retorts, “Dont come up hear and try to blow sunshine up my butt!!”

West took offense to Hamze’s amateurish criticism of his stance on radical Islam and concluded by telling Mr. Hamze to “put the microphone down and go home.”

Good For The Queen!!! ~ No Invite for the Obamas, the Queen Personally Asks 40 Other Heads of State to Attend Prince William's Wedding to Kate

Prince William and Kate Middleton

No invite for the Obamas as the Queen personally asks 40 other heads of state to attend Prince William's wedding to Kate


Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle have not been invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding.
The Queen personally invited 40 heads of state, who received the gold-embossed invitations over the weekend to the April 29 wedding of the future king.

The Obamas, however, were not among them.

But they can take solace in the knowledge that they will be the guests of their very own state visit to the UK in May.

French Prime Minister Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni will also miss out and Prince Andrew’s former wife, Sarah Ferguson – the Duchess of York – has also been snubbed.

Leaders from Commonwealth counties, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand have been invited along with Kings and Queens across Europe, including Spain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Greece.

Other guests include the King of Jordan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, the Sultan of Oman, the King of Bahrain, the Sultan of Brunei and the King of Saudi Arabia, the Emperor of Japan, the King of Malaysia, the King of Tonga and the King of Thailand.

The way the obamas have treated the British, I wouldn't invite the sleazebags either.

I have no idea what the problem is with Sarkozy though. But I am grateful to hear this news and the disappointment it will mean to Michelle and Barack.

University of Wisconsin School of Medicine To Investigate Reports of Doctors Writing Fake Medical Excuses For Union Protesters

International Anarchists, Socialists and Marxists Have a Substance-Fueled Rave While Taking Over Wisconsin State Capitol


Union Goons Shout Down Fox News Report on Doctors Handing out Fake Sick Notes to Wisconsin Teachers

On February 21, 2011 Brett Healy of the MacIver Institute was invited to appear on Your World with Neil Cavuto to discuss a national news story the MacIver News Service broke 48 hours earlier.

What happens when protesters who had been chanting "This is what Democracy looks like" see a free market think tank leader being interviewed by Fox News?

Watch this video.


Statement Regarding UW Health Physicians

There are reports on both social media and news websites that a number of UW Health physicians were signing "medical excuse" notes for protesters at the Capitol on Feb. 19. This involves a few individuals out of the nearly 1,300 physicians at UW Health.

These UW Health physicians were acting on their own and without the knowledge or approval of UW Health. These charges are very serious and in response, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation, the UW Health entities that employ the physicians, have immediately launched an investigation of the reported behavior.

The investigation will identify which UW Health physicians were involved and whether their behavior constituted violations of medical ethics or University of Wisconsin and UW Health policies and work rules. The investigation and any potential future action will follow the established procedures of the University of Wisconsin. Any future disciplinary action taken will be considered a personnel matter and will be treated with the confidentiality required by University of Wisconsin policies.

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

I wonder if they really will enforce any laws or not about these doctors. I would think the doctor as well as the person using the fake note would be in serious trouble. They are guilty of fraud or at least conspiracy to commit fraud.

Obama Tells Americans Cut Back and Stop Eating Out Just As Restaurants Finally See Positive Growth

National Restaurant Association

Restaurant industry sales are expected to reach a record $604 billion and post positive growth in 2011 after a three-year period of negative real sales growth, according to the National Restaurant Association 2011 Restaurant Industry Forecast. Sales are projected to advance 3.6 percent over 2010 sales, which equals 1.1 percent in real (inflation-adjusted) terms.

Sales at the nation’s 960,000 restaurants represent 4 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product, and restaurant employees comprise nearly 10 percent of the U.S. workforce. Restaurants are the nation’s second-largest private sector employer with 12.8 million employees.

Jump to 14 days later......OBAMA tells Americans to stay home and cook.

Los Angeles Times

Obama's perception of how painfully the feds need to address their fiscal canyon: "If you’re a family trying to cut back, you might skip going out to dinner, you might put off a vacation."

Delay a vacation? Where, to his planet? When millions of American families would settle for having a job in Obama's unstimulated economy? Or keeping their home while the Democrat lobs $53 billion more taxpayer money winning the future with unions ....

Wild Thing's comment......

Remember how his yakking did a lot of damage to the tourist and business reteat of Las Vegas. Obama did tremendous damage with his comments back then about not going there, and even telling businesses not to have their business meetings and conferences there.

Now he has done it with going out to eat.

He wants to dictate to every aspect of our lives.

Obama continues to show his disdain for and mockery of the Office of the President--and, having no leadership skills, continues to fly his one-finger salute to Americans.

He must be driven from office. Soon.

Obama Administration Caught Offering Contracts To Create 'Fake People' On Social Networks To Promote Propaganda

US Gov. Software Creates ‘Fake People’ on Social Networks to Promote Propaganda

by Sean Kerrigan

The US government is offering private intelligence companies contracts to create software to manage "fake people" on social media sites and create the illusion of consensus on controversial issues.

The contract calls for the development of "Persona Management Software" which would help the user create and manage a variety of distinct fake profiles online. The job listing was discussed in recently leaked emails from the private security firm HBGary after an attack by internet activist last week.

According to the contract, the software would "protect the identity of government agencies" by employing a number of false signals to convince users that the poster is in fact a real person. A single user could manage unique background information and status updates for up to 10 fake people from a single computer.

The software enables the government to shield its identity through a number of different methods including the ability to assign unique IP addresses to each persona and the ability to make it appear as though the user is posting from other locations around the world.

Included in HBGary's leaked emails was a government proposal for the government contract. The document describes how they would 'friend' real people on Facebook as a way to convey government messages. The document reads:

•"Those names can be cross-referenced across Facebook, twitter, MySpace, and other social media services to collect information on each individual. Once enough information is collected this information can be used to gain access to these individuals social circles.

•Even the most restrictive and security conscious of persons can be exploited. Through the targeting and information reconnaissance phase, a person’s hometown and high school will be revealed. An adversary can create a account at the same high school and year and find out people you went to high school with that do not have Facebook accounts, then create the account and send a friend request. Under the mutual friend decision, which is where most people can be exploited, an adversary can look at a targets friend list if it is exposed and find a targets most socially promiscuous friends, the ones that have over 300-500 friends, friend them to develop mutual friends before sending a friend request to the target. To that end friend’s accounts can be compromised and used to post malicious material to a targets wall. When choosing to participate in social media an individual is only as protected as his/her weakest friend."

The left has already been been creating fake voters for years. Heck, they even created a fake president!!!!!!!!!

Our tax dollars at work creating faux-cyber activists.

Good grief, we have a seriously out of control government.

If George Bush had tried anything like this, the left and the media would be going absolutely out of their minds. Every committee chairman in the House and every committe chairman in the Senate, and the Chairmen of every one of their subcommittees, would be demanding hearings into every aspect of this. We would literally never hear the end of it.

Rememebr this........ Cass Sunstein: Obama confidant’s spine-chilling proposal.....By Glenn Greenwald

Rush Limbaugh talked about this on his show yesterday. He said. Obama was just meeting with all the large social net work and Internet executives.

This is what Rush just mentioned to this caller who doubted what he said about this report:

Remember, it's the Obama administration doing this -- and why? Why do they have to create fake numbers, fake people? Why do they have to manufacture people who don't exist? It's precisely because very few people agree with what they believe. Very few -- in terms of the majority population in the country, very few -- actually think the way they do. They have to fake it. They have to make themselves look like they're mainstream when they're actually nothing but fringe, and Obama has an entire media wing who post on Twitter and Facebook for him. They're from There's a whole wing. When I say a media wing, I'm talking about a brigade, a division. Who knows how many people are out there working Facebook and Twitter each and every day, for Obama.

Fake identities. Fake people. You know, Lenin called his party "the Bolsheviks." That means "big party," but it was actually quite small, and it's what we're dealing with here. We're dealing with absolute false, fake imagery, because that's all they can do to make themselves look legitimate; all they can do to make themselves look like a majority because they aren't. The truth is that majority of people are not them and disagree with them profoundly.

Wounded Iraq Vet Heckled at Columbia University

Veteran Anthony Maschek (above, with fiancée Angela O'Neill) faced heckling from fellow Columbia students over ROTC

"Racist!" some students yelled at Anthony Maschek, a Columbia freshman and former Army staff sergeant awarded the Purple Heart after being shot 11 times in a firefight in northern Iraq in February 2008. Others hissed and booed the veteran.

Maschek, 28, had bravely stepped up to the mike Tuesday at the meeting to issue an impassioned challenge to fellow students on their perceptions of the military.

Wounded Iraq Vet Heckled at Columbia University

FOX Nation

New York Post

by Bruce McQuain

Apparently civility and free speech only apply to one side at Columbia University - the anti-military side. Woe be unto you if you have the temerity to stand up in an open forum as a member of the Columbia University community and voice an opinion in opposition to that which is prevalent there.

A wounded Iraq war veteran found that out recently as he stood up - something he had to learn to do again after his wounds - and gave what the NY Post describes as an "impassioned challenge to fellow students on their perceptions of the military." It occurred during the second of three meetings the University has scheduled to talk about ROTC and the possibility of bringing it back on campus.

Speaking truth to ignorance, Anthony Maschek said to his fellow students:

“It doesn’t matter how you feel about the war. It doesn’t matter how you feel about fighting,” said Maschek. “There are bad men out there plotting to kill you.”

One student shouted “racist” at the former soldier, awarded the Purple Heart for somehow surviving being shot 11 times .

Several students laughed and jeered the Idaho native, a 10th Mountain Division infantryman who spent two years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington recovering from grievous wounds.

Maschek, who is studying economics, miraculously survived the insurgent attack in Kirkuk. In the hail of gunfire, he broke both legs and suffered wounds to his abdomen, arm and chest.

Several students laughed and jeered the Idaho native, a 10th Mountain Division infantryman who spent two years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington recovering from grievous wounds.

Opinions of the military like that aren’t unheard of among some members of our colleges and universities. But this is 2011, not 1971 and the vast majority of Americans decided early on in this century that it isn’t at all acceptable anymore.

Behavior like that of Columbia’s anti-military crowd toward Mascheck is rude, crass, childish, and demonstrates a cosseted ignorance that they, for some reason, seem eager to display. It speaks to the fact that differing opinions are not welcome. And civil debate? Why bother with that when you can bravely stand up and call a wounded warrior a “racist” for simply expressing himself in an open forum?

This sort of bratty behavior toward a man who literally bled on their behalf only demonstrates for all the the emptiness of words like “tolerance”, “civility”, “acceptance” and “equality” for the Columbia anti-war students who jeered and laughed at this man. They should be mortally ashamed of themselves.

The incident also demonstrates that there is no real desire to engage and discuss – instead the emotional argument hold’s sway and any who oppose it are shouted down. Their minds are made up and they have no desire to hear dissenting opinions – their preconceived notions based in a totally naive outlook on the world have formed their unchangable opinion about the military. And ROTC.

“Universities should not be involved in military activities,” Sociology Professor Emeritus Herbert Gans told The Post. “Columbia should come out against spending $300 billion a year on unnecessary wars.”


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

Thank you for your service, Anthony Maschek. We are proud of you!

This really boils my blood. This soldier is a hero, and he is being heckled by a bunch of spoiled commie punks.

Michigan Union ‘Outsources’ Protesters; Hires Homeless to Picket

The Mackinac Center for Public Policy discovers that the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters uses non-union labor to protest a Grand Rapids area businessman. What's worse, the union has even recruited demonstrators who frequent local homeless shelters, including a shelter which gets help from the very same businessman targeted by the union.


Wild Thing's comment.....

Another reason why Rush refers to them as a rent-a-mob.

I’m convinced their are no depths to which union bosses will not sink.

For one thing, their union members obviously are too lazy to go out and picket themselves or why would they have to go and pay these homless people to hold signs and protest with them.

Secondly what also REALLY ticks me off is how twice with obama he has given OUR tax dollars to the Unions and what for????? So they can have millions to use to run campaigns against Republican's. I have posted about the stimulus for unions before as have other blogs. It is unforgivable that we have to be used like this!!!!!

Obama Goes Too Far by Mobilizing Opposition in Wisconsin

Wisconsin protests: Obama goes too far by mobilizing opposition

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

by Kyle Wingfield

There are many lessons to be learned from the protests and outright abdication of duty by public labor unions and Democrats (but I repeat myself) in Wisconsin. One of them is that there can no longer be any doubts that President Obama has radical ideas about the proper balance and relationship between the federal and state governments.

From the Washington Post:

Obama thrust himself and his political operation this week into Wisconsin’s broiling budget battle, mobilizing opposition Thursday to a Republican bill that would curb public-worker benefits and planning similar protests in other state capitals.

Obama accused Scott Walker, the state’s new Republican governor, of unleashing an “assault” on unions in pushing emergency legislation that would change future collective-bargaining agreements that affect most public employees, including teachers.
The president’s political machine worked in close coordination Thursday with state and national union officials to get thousands of protesters to gather in Madison and to plan similar demonstrations in other state capitals.
Their efforts began to spread, as thousands of labor supporters turned out for a hearing in Columbus, Ohio, to protest a measure from Gov. John Kasich (R) that would cut collective-bargaining rights.
By the end of the day, Democratic Party officials were organizing additional demonstrations in Ohio and Indiana, where an effort is underway to trim benefits for public workers. Some union activists predicted similar protests in Missouri, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Let me make my position perfectly clear: The president of the United States has no business whatsoever interfering, especially by using his campaign apparatus, with a state government’s dealings with its employees.

No. Business. Whatsoever.

His eagerness to jump into the fray in Madison, like his ill-advised wading into the dispute over the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates two summers ago, not only betrays his disturbing instinct to think nothing is beyond the bounds of his office. It actually demeans the office itself.

Folks, in case it wasn’t clear before: There is nothing — nothing — that Obama considers outside the purview of the federal government. His meddling in Wisconsin is the logical conclusion of that ideology.


Wild Thing's comment......

Excellent article! This liberal newpaper online thinks obama has jumped the shark. It took them long enough to start to wake up, let's hope it continues. The AJC has been showing a few signs of getting a clue. I think perhaps they finally figured out that advertisers really do want to reach suburban audiences who in general hate the AJC’s politics.

The one thing that Obama and Democrats have in common is that they do not believe in free speech when the words stand opposed to theirs.

Obama doesn't care about anyone or anything except his agenda.

Israel Can No Longer Rely On WH, There Is Lack of Leadership From Obama

Likud Knesset Member Danny Danon

Israel: White House not reliable


Israel can no longer rely on the White House ( OBAMA) and must trust only itself due to a lack of leadership on the part of President Obama, declared a Knesset member from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling Likud party.

“We have to understand that if, God forbid, we will be in the case of trouble, we can trust only ourselves because we see a lack of leadership coming from the U.S. today,” said Likud Knesset Member Danny Danon.

“And we should be worried about it, because we always think, well, we have a friend in the White House, we can call them when we are in need, and we see that is not the case,” said Danon, the deputy speaker of Israel’s parliament.

Danon was speaking in an interview with reporter Aaron Klein in the latter’s investigative program on New York’s WABC Radio.

The Israeli politician took the occasion to slam Obama’s treatment of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Following weeks of unrest targeting Mubarak’s regime, Obama called for the U.S. ally to allow for the immediate transition to democracy, leading to Mubarak’s resignation.

“We don’t see a leadership role of the American president and actually they (the Obama administration) are following what is happening in the Middle East. On the one hand, they support Mubarak; the next day they are against him.”

Danon added, “Frankly speaking, unfortunately we see a lack of leadership coming from Washington. They don’t actually take decisions. They follow, and they look at the news and then they deliver statements to the media.”


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

This man is right about obama, obama is not a leader ( a wanna be dictator yes but not a leader), he has his own agenda and will only follow that. Obama is an enemy of the United States PERIODas well as Israel, and anyone who can’t see that by now is a certified MORON.

Obama is looking to the resurrection of the Caliphate just like every loyal Muslim.

I feel so badly about Israel and how obama has treated them and BiBi. It is terrible.

Donald Rumsfeld Speaks The Truth: Obama Apologizes for America

Obama apologizes for America: Rumsfeld


US President Barack Obama has a habit of apologizing for the United States and did nothing to earn his Nobel Peace Prize, former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Sunday.

Asked whether Obama had turned international favor back toward the United States after eight years of president George W. Bush's administration, Rumsfeld rejected the premise.

"No, and I don't think there's data that supports that," he said in an interview with CNN. "I think he has made a practice of trying to apologize for America. I personally am proud of America."

Rumsfeld said Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize "on hope" instead of his accomplishments, something Obama himself suggested at the time.

"Well, he had not accomplished a thing when he got the Nobel Prize. It was given to him on hope. Had to have been because there wasn't anything that he'd done. He'd been in office 15 minutes," Rumsfeld said.

When he was awarded the prize, Obama acknowledged that he did not feel deserving of the honor only months after becoming president.

"I am both surprised and deeply humbled by the decision of the Nobel Committee. Let me be clear: I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations," he said.

Rumsfeld is promoting his autobiography "Known and Unknown," which defends many of his controversial actions as defense secretary from 2001-2006 under Bush, including his role in deciding to invade Iraq and establish the "war on terror" prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

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

I am so glad Rumsfled said this. It needs to be said by as many people that have a voice in the media as possible.

Obama has turned America from a country not to be messed with into a proverbial fire hydrant that every mad dog in the world has lined up to lift their leg on.

Obama has sought to apologize for the actions of the USA when addressing a foreign audience--including some of the apologies listed below. The obama has already apologized for the US to nearly 3 billion people across Europe, the Muslim world, and the Americas.

1.. Apology to France and Europe ("America Has Shown Arrogance")

"In America, there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive."

2. Apology to the Muslim World ("We Have Not Been Perfect") Obama, interview with Al Arabiya, January 27, 2009

"My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy. We sometimes make mistakes. We have not been perfect. But if you look at the track record, as you say, America was not born as a colonial power, and that the same respect and partnership that America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or 30 years ago, there's no reason why we can't restore that."

3. Apology to the Summit of the Americas ("At Times We Sought to Dictate Our Terms")
Obama, address to the Summit of the Americas opening ceremony, Hyatt Regency, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, April 17, 2009

"I know that promises of partnership have gone unfulfilled in the past, and that trust has to be earned over time. While the United States has done much to promote peace and prosperity in the hemisphere, we have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms. But I pledge to you that we seek an equal partnership. .......The United States will be willing to acknowledge past errors where those errors have been made."

4. Apology at the G-20 Summit of World Leaders ("Some Restoration of America's Standing in the World")

"I would like to think that with my election and the early decisions that we've made, that you're starting to see some restoration of America's standing in the world. "

These are only a few of the many, too many times obama has apologized for our country. And done so with lies.

The last three democrat administrations, including the current one, have all been run by spoiled unaccomplished children who favor our enemies, support marxism and hate the USA.

Herman Cain Speaks At Tea Party Rally To Show Support For Gov.Walker in Madison, Wis.

Herman Cain rallying Tea Party Members in Madison, Wisconsin in support of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Thousands of conservatives descended on Madison to show support for the sanity Gov. Scott Walker is trying to bring to the state’s budget.

The rally was designed to let Walker and the nation know that there is a huge amount of support for what he is doing in the face of protests from the pro-union lobby in the state, which is being aided and organized with the help of the Democrat National Committee and Obama’s Organizing for America.

Cain said Wisconsins elected a “sane, strong leader by the name of Scott Walker,” and he is doing his job. Cain asked “the other side,” “What part of ‘broke’ don’t ya’ll understand?” Cain said Walker is trying to prevent the state from becoming, “dead broke,” because being “dead broke ain’t a pretty feeling.”

Cain proclaimed the battle in Wisconsin as “ground zero for taking back our nation one state at a time.” He ended with his refrain that, “We the people of the United States of America are not going to let the United States of America become the United States of Europe – not on our watch!”

Wild Thing's comment......

AMEN to that ! Herman Cain is such a great speaker, he is always good. He’s got a common sense, business-oriented focus, and it’s refreshing.

Wisconsin handily elected Walker after he ran on this issue, and they handily elected Republicans in both houses of the legislature after running on this’s awesome!

Wisconsin flipped from navy blue to bright red overnight!

The ‘rats and the unions are having a hard time fathoming.

Marines Mark 66th Anniversary Of Iwo Jima

Camp Pendleton Marines commemorated the 66th anniversary of the bloody and heroic Battle of Iwo Jima on Saturday evening.

Marines landed on Feb. 19, 1945, to claim an emergency airfield for damaged B-29 bombers returning from Japan.

Japanese soldiers, with the advantage of caves and high ground, contested every inch of land over the next five weeks and inflicted 26,000 casualties on U.S. forces, including about 6,800 killed.

The public part of the commemoration included a memorial service at sunset at the Iwo Jima Monument at the base's South Mesa Club.

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

We must never forget. In memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, for truth, justice and the American way. God bless you all. God bless America.

The “warrior” spirit is still very much with us. All the branches of our armed forces make me proud.

A couple weeks ago, we lost Major Gen. Bruce Jacobs, a cardiac rehab friend of mine. He was in charge of an Army Transport ship taking the Marines in.

Radio Show hosts Mark Levin (his grandfather) and John Bachelor (father) had relatives in the Marines on Iwo.

Also, Swift Boat veteran John O’Neill’s father was flying skycap for the Marines on Iwo.

There was also a Seabee company that was accidentally sent in (the request was for one engineer to operate a piece of equipment). They were lightly armed and decimated. Don’t know the unit identification.

A salute to them and their families

Tea Partiers Rally in Madison to Support GOP Gov. Scott Walker ~ " America is going to be community organized NO More"

Tea Party Movement Brings in 15,000 Protesters to Madison With 24 Hour Notice...... in support of GOP Gov. Scott Walker and his plan to balance the state’s budget. Walker wants to end collective bargaining rights for public sector workers as a way to get costs under control. The report says that the Tea Party protest on the Capitol Grounds was surrounded by pro-Union / anti-Walker protesters who marched around the outside of the Capitol Grounds shouting, “Kill the bill.”

And they paid their own way!

The AP estimated that 70,000 protesters turned out in Madison today. If that number is accurate then at least 15,000 were Walker supporters.


" America is going to be community organized NO MORE! "

Breitbart's speech at the tea party rally in Madison. Great opening line here from Andrew, he also calls out the doctors for writing out Dr. notes saying that lying shows a poor example to children who are watching.


Wild Thing's comment......

Love the first line of Breitbarts speech. That should be on t-shirts and stickers. " America is going to be community organized NO More"

What a huge difference once again we see in the people for America vs. the goons wanting to destroy America.

Obama has shown he is an agitator, and loves to see conflict, because of the conflict he believes he and his desires will win.

House Speaker John Boehner Unleashes New GOP Freshmen ~ Fantastic Work Speaker Boehner!!!

Speaker of the House John Boehner, (R) of Ohio, arrives for a news conference at Republican National Committee headquarters Tuesday, Feb. 15. Unlike his predecessor Nancy Pelosi, Speaker Boehner is much more willing to let individual lawmakers act independently.

House Speaker John Boehner Unleashes New GOP Freshmen

House Speaker John Boehner is taking a sharp turn from former speaker Nancy Pelosi's command-and-control style. He's letting his new freshmen act more independently. The battle to cut spending while avoiding a government shutdown is the first test.


The schedule was shot – final votes on a massive bill to fund the government past March 4 had been set for Thursday -- the House floor had just erupted in hoots and shouts, and John Boehner, Speaker of the House for just 45 days, was beaming.

“This was like diving off a 50-foot diving board your first dive – to do all of government,” the Ohio Republican told a handful of reporters in an impromptu meeting Friday night, just off the House floor. “There’s no example of the People’s House better than what you’ve seen here. They’ve had a real debate, and they loved it.”

Not everyone loved it. Senior Democrats – who had seen their legacy on issues ranging from health care reform and financial regulation to greening initiatives in the Capital defunded by the new majority this week – called it a travesty.

“The only good thing about it is that it will go nowhere,” said Rep. Barney Frank (D) of Massachusetts, whose signature Wall Street reform law was drained of resources by floor votes this week.

But for the bumper crop of Republican freshmen – the engine of the new majority – this week marked a decisive coming out.

Many waited until late Friday night to present their own amendments to an omnibus bill to scale back a projected $1.6 trillion deficit for FY 2011. The right to offer amendments on legislation had all but disappeared in the highly polarized House in recent years. For a freshman to have a shot at amending a bill was an event rarer still.

This week, a dozen GOP freshmen stood up on the floor to manage their own amendments. By the end of the week, the time allotted to make their case on the floor had dropped to three minutes, including time to offer to colleagues supporting your amendment.

Boehner says it’s just what he wants.

“This open debate is teaching a lot of members to be legislators,” he said, in remarks to journalists on Friday. “Half of the freshmen have never served in public office. Allowing them to participate in this will speed up their development as legislators.”

This is vintage Boehner, who helped lead the Republican revolution that took back the House in 1995.

“If we’re able to continue with as open a process as we can have, it will drive major change in the institution,” he said on Friday. “With an open process that respects the work of committees, you’ll see more working across the aisles and more healthy debate…. All of our differences get thawed out on the floor of the House.”

'My job is not to enforce my will'

Asked whether he can control the 87-member freshmen class, he said: “Our job is not to have control over them. That’s not the way the House should be run…. My job is to protect the institution, not enforce my will … to restore an institution that has been badly damaged over a long time.”

That’s exactly what concerns Senate Democrats, who now must decide how to come to terms with a bill that both majority leader Harry Reid and President Obama have rejected.

Boehner announced on Thursday that he will not accept an extension of the continuing resolution (CR) now funding government without spending cuts. If the House and Senate do not agree on a bill to fund the government by March 4, the government shuts down.

Boehner and the freshmen are facing two other major votes on spending: Next, a vote to pass a budget resolution for FY 2012 and, later this spring, a highly controversial vote to raise the national debt limit above $14.3 trillion.

“These will be the most important two or three months we’ve seen in this town in a decade,” he said, on Friday. Then, he smiled.

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

This really shows how Pelosi was a real tyrant! There should be MORE deal making in House, and certainly each of our respecitive Representatives should have a voice, rather than running everything by just a few leaders.

“Command and Control” should be the Democrat's Party’s motto.

The Freshmen are having a huge impact for only being in office for 6 weeks. AND Speaker Boehner supports them. He's not being a RINO here. Better yet, he's not Nancy and he has Barney Frank all a dither!

Madison Police Detain Union Pperative Who Tried To Destroy Tea Party Sound System

The Daily Caller


Police officers in Madison detained and subsequently released a labor union operative who attempted, somewhat successfully, to destroy the speaker system at the Tea Party counter rally Saturday.

Police would not release the name of the man, or any more details, but eyewitnesses told The Daily Caller he ripped the wiring out of several different speaker systems. Part of the sound system went out for about five minutes.

When a Tea Partier, Luke Bacher, confronted the man ripping the speaker wiring out, Bacher said the man physically assaulted him. That caused police to get involved and detain the union operative.

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

They are called thugs for a reason.

We know they’re like this, but it needs to be reported. The people need to see what these leftists are like.

All you lurkers of this blog, you that are democrats, take note of the behavior of Wisconsin’s State Senate Democrats and state teachers . This is what you voted for, this is what YOU have decided you want for your children, for America. Thugs running things, thugs making threats and the Chief THUG of all Obama siding and encouraging all of this to happen.

Disgusted Allen West to Dems: Grow Up!

Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Allen West, now Republican Representative from Florida
He sent a letter to his constituency yesterday.


To the Citizens of the Twenty-Second District of the State of Florida:

Over this past week I have watched and listened to Members of the House of Representatives from across the aisle.

I am appalled at their arrogance, belligerence, and dishonest rhetoric filled with empty emotional platitudes. Have they no shame in realizing that their inept, incompetent failures are the reason why we are debating this continuing resolution. They failed to pass a budget during the 111th Congress.

Have they no honor in realizing that their fiscal irresponsibility over the past four years has resulted in our standing on the precipice of a fiscal canyon from which we may not recover?

Also troubling are the events in the state of Wisconsin which mirror those that happened in Greece several months ago. We are witnessing the abject hostility of a unionized entitlement class that is being lauded by the liberal left, seemingly to include our President.

It is such a critical time for our Republic, yet there seems no visionary leadership – it is as if American stopped producing adults. I have never seen a greater assembly of petulance and sophomoric behavior as what I have witnessed this week on the floor of the House of Representatives.

To those across the aisle, please explain to the American people how your economic policies have created a better environment for long term sustainable growth.

This debate is about jobs and the economy.

It begins with remedying the spending problem on Capitol Hill. It includes tackling the burdensome taxation and regulation policies strangling our country. It is the understanding that Keynesian tax and spend policies did not grow America's economy, but the indomitable, entrepreneurial spirit of the American People.

Government sets the conditions for job and economic growth, it does not create jobs.

I am pleased that we are having open debate in the people's house. However, there is clearly something lacking in this discourse – the recognition of the failure of the bureaucratic nanny-state liberal policies.

Rest assured that I will do everything in my ability to stand firm and lead on the principles that make America exceptional.

Very Respectfully,

Allen B. West

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

APPLAUSE!!!! Lt. Col. West does not suffer fools lightly.

“It is such a critical time for our Republic, yet there seems no visionary leadership — it is as if America stopped producing adults. I have never seen a greater assembly of petulance and sophomoric behavior as what I have witnessed this week on the floor of the House of Representatives.

Here’s a leader who has served with real men and women and knows a flake a mile away. God Bless Allen West and keep him in the fight.

I don’t think anyone in congress is prepared for this guy. A buttkicking American in the purest sense of the term who understands why our country is great.

It is going to be a thing of beauty watching him in D.C. because he won’t back down and he wins more friends every time he is heard.

Honor, Integrity, Sense of Purpose, and Patriotism....SOOOOO REFRESHING!!!

Tea Party Leaders To Show Support For Gov.Walker and America Madison, Wisconsin And To Counter Union Thugs

Tea Party Leaders Plan Descent on Madison, Wisconsin To Counter Union Rallies

The Daily Caller

Tea Party leaders are organizing a counter-rally in Madison, Wisc. to support newly elected Republican Gov. Scott Walker against the labor unions that have been protesting his proposed budget cuts all week. Conservative media guru Andrew Breitbart, possible 2012 presidential candidate Herman Cain and other notables are en route to Madison for the counter-rally, scheduled to begin at noon central time on Saturday.

Walker is pushing a new budget that would eliminate some collective bargaining privileges for public sector employees, which he says has been a long time coming. Wisconsin’s Democratic state senators fled on Thursday to thwart a vote on the measure. There are 19 Republican senators, and while they hold the majority, 20 senators total are required for a vote. So the budget cannot pass until the GOP gets one more senator on board.

Public sector unions, led by the Democratic National Committee’s lobbying and campaign arm, “Organizing for America,” have descended on the state’s capitol in an effort to keep Walker’s budget from being approved. Big-name union bosses such as AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka have bussed in union folks from around the country to support the cause, and Jesse Jackson appeared in Madison as well. Several public schools throughout the state have closed down due to teachers calling in sick to protest.

Saturday’s counter-rally is the first of many likely counter-attacks from Tea Partiers.

Breitbart told The Daily Caller he’s not sure what he’ll see when he arrives in Wisconsin, but expects it will be “the same familiar faces” that back other left-wing movements.
“I’m expecting hostility because dissent is no longer patriotic in Obama’s America,” Breitbart said.

Breitbart said this weekend’s rally will be important — a historic battleground of sorts — because it will show the Tea Party movement is alive and kicking despite a decrease in activity following the midterm elections.

He said it’s time for the press to stop defending the Obama administration and start pointing out the “illogical rhetoric” of the union bosses and so-called civil rights leaders.

“This is an important stance for the Tea Party,” Breitbart said. “The Tea Party is perpetuating safe, clean, wholesome rhetoric and activity versus the violent, racial, hateful and revolutionary rhetoric coming from the organized left.”

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

Obama has fueled the flames by backing the union thuggocracy. If there is violence as the two sides protest at the Wisconsin Capital building, it is on Obama hands.

The union thugs who have occupied the Capital area all week have left trash EVERYWHERE, painted graffiti on buildings, and have no respect for civil society.

Prayers for their safety.

House Cuts Off Funding For Obamacare & Planned Parenthood ~ HUGE Thank you!!

House cuts off funding for healthcare reform, Planned Parenthood

The Hill

House on Friday voted largely along party lines to prohibit funding for President Obama’s healthcare reform law and eliminate funding for family planning.

In a quick succession of two-minute votes, the House adopted three amendments to their stopgap budget bill that eliminates healthcare reform funding through the end of the fiscal year. The House also approved, 240-185, an amendment barring federal Title X family planning grants that was aimed squarely at Planned Parenthood.

The vote on the Planned Parenthood amendment from Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) was postponed Thursday night after three hours of bitter debate during which Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) revealed she once had to have an abortion. She made the revelation on the House floor after Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) described in graphic detail an abortion procedure.

“I really planned to speak about something else but the gentleman from New Jersey just put my stomach in knots because I’m one of those women he spoke about just now,” Speier said. “I had a procedure at 17 weeks pregnant with a child who moved from the vagina into the cervix. And that procedure that you just described is a procedure that I endured.”

The other three amendments bar federal funding for the healthcare reform law:

an amendment from health appropriations subcommittee Chair Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) blocks 2011 funding for the health and labor departments to implement the healthcare reform law;

an amendment from Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) blocks all federal funding for the law; and

an amendment from Rep. Jo Ann Emerson (R-Mo.) bars the Internal Revenue Service from using funds to enforce the law's individual mandate requiring Americans to have insurance by 2014. Two federal courts have ruled that the mandate is unconstitutional.

The continuing resolution faces high hurdles in the Democrat-controlled Senate. And President Obama announced he "strongly opposes" it before the new amendments even passed.

"If the president is presented with a bill that undermines critical priorities or national security through funding levels or restrictions, contains earmarks, or curtails the drivers of long-term economic growth and job creation while continuing to burden future generations with deficits, the president will veto the bill," the administration said this week.

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


Let us all remember this wonderful day and realize that this GOP House is doing what they promised if elected.

The way I understand it is, according to the Constitution, all bills to spend money must originate in the House. The President can propose any spending he wants to, but that's just for show until the House puts said spending into a bill and send it over to the Senate. Then, if they approve it, the President must sign it for the bill to become law and to actually get the money spent.

So, in this case if the House doesn't put the spending into the budget bill, then the money can't get spent. The Senate and the President can stand on their heads, and it will do no more good than King Cannute getting ticked off about the tide rolling in.

The key here, now that these funds have been stripped out of the bill, is strictly and solely that the House Republicans have to stick to their guns, stay strong and not give in no matter what.

This is very heartening news.

THIS, my a GOOD day for America!

Gov. Scott Walker: GOP "Will Not Be Intimidated"

Governor Walker responded to Obama:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker talks about the protests and how they won’t allow the outrageous rhetoric of the Left to intimidate them. He even noted that union protesters arrived at his house a few days ago and the police had to shut the street down.

“I think we’re focused on balancing our budget. It would be wise for the president and others in Washington to focus on balancing their budget, which they’re a long ways from doing,” Walker told Fox News.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker: "If anything, I think [the Democrats' decision to leave the state has] made the Republicans in the Assembly and the Senate stronger. They're not going to be bullied, they're not going to be intimidated. I've said all along, the thousands of people who are storming the capitol have every right to be heard, but I'm not going to let them overshadow the voices of the millions of taxpayers from the state of Wisconsin who deserve to be heard as well."

State Sen. Bob Jauch : says the protests and demonstrations against Gov. Scott Walker's budget repair ... "This is the rebirth of the Progressive movement"


Ohio pro-Union thug called tea partyers today Hitler, Nazis, Brown Shirts at their state house rally.


Socialists Rooting for Revolution in Wisconsin


Texas Governor Rick Perry released this statement yesterday in support of Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin.


Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is in the middle of what will be a defining moment for our country and the conservative movement.

Governor Walker is directly confronting unsustainable state entitlements by asking government-sector unions to agree to reforms that would limit collective-bargaining for most government-sector employees to wages only, with wages capped to inflation. Under his proposal, union members would also have to vote every year to keep their union.

Rather than debate the measure Thursday, Wisconsin Democrat state senators fled the state while thousands of teachers in Madison and other cities called in sick at the urging of their labor union and forced entire school districts to be closed.

Even President Barack Obama’s political operatives have helped to orchestrate protests.

Simply put, the stakes could not get much higher, which is why I am asking you to show your support for Governor Scott Walker today by clicking HERE.

It is essential that we stand with Governor Walker and show political leaders throughout the country that America is ready to take on its toughest political challenges, and we will not be deterred by the protests of a noisy minority.

Please CLICK HERE right now to show your support for Governor Walker.

Gov. Rick Perry

Federal Judge to OBAMA and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar: Stop Stalling Drilling Permits

Federal judge to Salazar: Stop stalling drilling permits

Washington Examiner

Federal District Judge Martin Feldman today gave President Obama and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar 30 days to act on five applications seeking permits to drill in the Gulf of Mexico submitted months ago by a Louisiana firm.

In issuing the directive to the government, Feldman, who sits on the District Court for the Eastern District of Louisian, noted that "it is undisputed that before the Deepwater Horizon disaster, permits were processed, on average, in two weeks’ time. In stark contrast, the five permits at issue have been pending from four to some nine months."

The permits were sought by Ensco Offshore, which is based in Broussard, LA. Virtually no new drilling has occurred in the Gulf since the Deepwater Horizon disaster, despite the fact the U.S. depends upon drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico for roughly a third of its oil and natural gas.

When that third isn't produced, it has to be replaced and that means more OPEC oil being imported by the U.S. and more of our dollars going to the international cartel. Unfortunately, Feldman doesn't seem optimistic that things are going to improve any time soon:

"It is also undisputed that these delays have put off indefinitely drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Ensco has incurred significantly reduced standby rates on its rigs and has been forced to move some of its rigs to other locations around the world. It is unclear when Gulf drilling will resume. The government’s assurances have been inconsistent."

Feldman had strong words for Obama and Salazar, noting that "the government is under a duty to act by either granting or denying a permit application within a reasonable time. Not acting at all is not a lawful option."

He added that "to discharge the Secretary’s oversight responsibility, without any time-sensitive obligation to do so, as the government now starkly urges, unmasks the fiction of transparency in government."

To the government's excuse that regulation became more complicated and time-consuming in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, Feldman was equally unmoved:

"Perhaps it is reasonable for permit applicants to wait more than two weeks in a necessarily more closely regulated environment. Delays of four months and more in the permitting process, however, are unreasonable, unacceptable, and unjustified by the evidence before the Court," he said.

Feldman also ordered the government to report back to his court concerning its compliance with the preliminary injuction he issued in the case.

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

Obama has utter contempt for the rule of law. He is open defiance of a duly issued court order.

If Obama does not comply and he has not so far, a federal judge should declare him in contempt and have him arrested. I wish this could happen.

It’s way past time to rid this country of leftist America-haters. It’s time to declare the rat party a seditious organization and rid America of these traitors.

DemoRAT Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz:"violation of the House rules and disparaging to use wording 'Obamacare' " ~ OH OK Socialized Medicine or Obama's Death Care is More Accurate Anyway!!!

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Florida, attempted to interrupt U.S. Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger – over his use of the word “Obamacare.”

Wasserman Schultz Says Use of Term 'ObamaCare' Violates House Rules

American Spectator

Moments ago, Rep. Tom Graves was arguing that the amendment to defund the implementation of the national health care would stop the law dead in its tracks.

If it’s adopted, Graves said, “government bureaucrats cannot lift so much as a finger, move a paper clip, send an email, if it has anything to do with ObamaCare.”

At that point, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz interjected with a parliamentary inquiry, and was eventually recognized once Graves was finished speaking.

“In two previous gentlemen’s statements on the amendment, both of them referred to the Affordable Care Act, which is the accurate title of the health care reform law, as ‘ObamaCare,’” Wasserman Schultz said. “That is a disparaging reference to the President of the United States. It is meant as a disparaging reference to the President of the United States. It is clearly in violation of the House rules.”

Her argument did not go anywhere, and Republicans continued their references to ObamaCare.

Wild Thing's comment.....

This person is why there is a word BITCH! She is so horrible and I wish she was not from Florida. augh!

Hey Wasserman , go sit on a nail!!

I thought they were PROUD of their president and their accomplishment! You’d think they would be PROUD to call it Obamacare!

Anti-America OBAMA Responsible For Fanning The Flames at Wisconsin Capitol

Obama joins Wisconsin's budget battle, opposing Republican anti-union bill

Washington Post


Obama thrust himself and his political operation this week into Wisconsin's broiling budget battle, mobilizing opposition Thursday to a Republican bill that would curb public-worker benefits and planning similar protests in other state capitals.

Obama accused Scott Walker, the state's new Republican governor, of unleashing an "assault" on unions in pushing emergency legislation that would change future collective-bargaining agreements that affect most public employees, including teachers.

The president's political machine worked in close coordination Thursday with state and national union officials to get thousands of protesters to gather in Madison and to plan similar demonstrations in other state capitals.

"Some of what I've heard coming out of Wisconsin, where they're just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally, seems like more of an assault on unions," Obama told a Milwaukee television reporter on Thursday, taking the unusual step of inviting a local TV station into the White House for a sit-down interview. "I think everybody's got to make some adjustments, but I think it's also important to recognize that public employees make enormous contributions to our states and our citizens."

Boehner wades into Wisconsin labor battle, backing GOP governor

The Hill

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) stepped into the heated labor debate in Wisconsin on Thursday, backing GOP Gov. Scott Walker's proposed reforms to collective bargaining rights.

Boehner released a statement on Thursday afternoon backing Walker and his package of aggressive labor reforms that would force increased contributions by state workers to benefits and pension plans, and limit collective bargaining rights for some.

“Republicans in Congress — and reform-minded GOP governors like Scott Walker, John Kasich and Chris Christie — are daring to speak the truth about the dire fiscal challenges Americans face at all levels of government, and daring to commit themselves to solutions that will liberate our economy and help put our citizens on a path to prosperity," Boehner said in a statement. "I’m disappointed that instead of providing similar leadership from the White House, the president has chosen to attack leaders such as Gov. Walker, who are listening to the people and confronting problems that have been neglected for years at the expense of jobs and economic growth."

The GOP Speaker referred specifically to an interview President Obama gave on Wednesday to Milwaukee television, in which he called the new law an "assault on unions." What's more, the Wisconsin chapter of the president's political arm within the Democratic National Committee (DNC), worked to promote rallies against the new law.

Boehner called on Obama to have the DNC stand down in Wisconsin.

"The White House has even unleashed the Democratic National Committee to spread disinformation and confusion in Wisconsin regarding the governor’s courageous actions," he said. "I urge the president to order the DNC to suspend these tactics."

GOP Votes To Defund Obama's Policy 'czars'

The Hill

The House GOP approved an amendment to a government-spending bill that would block funding for the Obama administration’s so-called policy "czars,” appointed advisers to the president that have been much-criticized by Republicans.

The vote was 249-171.

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), specifically targets Obama’s “climate czar” by blocking funding for the assistant to the president for energy and climate change, the position's official title.

The amendment would block funding for the 'czars' through the end of the fiscal year, when the spending bill would run out. The underlying bill also includes a provision to block funding for the position.

"I think this sends a strong signal to the president that we are tired of him running this shadow government, where they have got these czars that are literally circumventing the accountability and scrutiny that goes with Senate confirmation," Scalise said after the vote.

Carol Browner, who currently holds the position, announced last month that she will resign, leaving the future of the office in doubt.

Scalise said the measure blocking the czars also makes good fiscal sense.

"We are going to save millions of taxpayer dollars, but we are also going to send him a signal that he is going to have to hold his administration accountable to the same transparency that he promised, but has unfortunately failed to deliver," he said.

Republicans railed against Browner and Obama’s other policy advisers, arguing they played too great a role in the president’s policy decisions for officials that were appointed rather than confirmed by Congress.

The amendment would also prohibit funding for the director of the White House Office of Health Reform; the State Department’s special envoy for climate change; the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation at the Council on Environmental Quality; the senior adviser to the secretary of the treasury assigned to the Presidential Task Force on the Auto Industry and senior counselor for manufacturing policy; the White House director of urban affairs; the special envoy to oversee the closure of Guantanamo Bay; the special master for TARP executive compensation at the Department of the Treasury; and the associate general counsel and chief diversity officer at the Federal Communications Commission.

Excellent news! This is GRRRRREAT news! The financial effect might not be that huge , but it relieves the citizenry of a few tyrants.

241 Republicans and 193 Democrats in the House! Looks like we picked up 8 Dems.

The List of Obama’s Czars this is over at Glenn Beck's website and it says there 32 Obama czars that they have counted.

In addition, President Obama has said that he will create the position of cyber czar, and there have been media reports that there could be a health insurance czar and a copyright czar. When and if those positions are filled, that would bring the total to 35.

AWOL Wisconsin Democrat Calls CNN With List Of Demands

AWOL Wisconsin Democrat calls CNN with list of demands

Daily Caller

State Senator Mark Miller, a member of the missing band of Wisconsin Democratic lawmakers who fled Madison Thursday to avoid a vote on a budget bill, called into CNN with the group’s list of demands for Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

Miller, a state senator since 2004, would not disclose where he and his colleagues were hiding out, saying only “we are in what we consider a secure location outside the capital. We are not all in one place at this time.”

Miller’s demands focused on the collective bargaining portions of the bill.

“We demand that the provisions that completely eliminate the ability of workers… to negotiate on a fair basis with their employers be removed from the budget repair bill and any other future budget,” Miller said.

He also demanded legislative oversight on changes to the state’s medical programs, which are targeted for changes in the bill. The bill would also require union members to contribute to their health care and pensions.

Miller and 13 other Democrats went missing Thursday morning when a vote on a budget-repair measure was imminent in the Republican-controlled Senate. It would have passed the Senate after getting out of committee on a party-line vote late last night, so Democrats left the building to stall a vote on the measure.

Asked by a CNN reporter why he and the Democrats weren’t doing their jobs, he countered by saying Walker had moved the bill too fast.

“We will return to do our job, but the governor has to do his job,” Miller said. “He has to engage in responsible negotiations with the interested parties and he failed to do so. . . We need to be able to enter into a responsible dialogue and not one that is such a sham.”

Asked about the deficit the state is facing, Miller said Walker is ignoring the economy’s recovery, which makes reigning in union benefits unnecessary.

“The economy’s recovering and the governor is completely ignoring the fact that we have a . . . recovery going,” Miller said. “The only thing that hasn’t recovered has been the rate of unemployment.”

Rhetoric vs. Reality: Liberal Protest of Gov. Walker's Budget Repair Plan

Police officers are looking for Democratic Wisconsin lawmakers who were ordered to attend a vote on a bill that would strip public employees of collective bargaining rights.

No Democrats showed up for Thursday’s Senate session, meaning a vote cannot be taken. Republicans need one Democratic senator to be present. Calls to Democratic leaders were not immediately returned.

Republicans are pushing the anti-union bill proposed by GOP Gov. Scott Walker. Thousands of people clogged the halls of the Statehouse for a third straight day in opposition.

Rent-a-mobs were fully activated and marched on Gov. Walker’s home.

The illegally striking teachers have succeeded in shutting down schools in Madison, Wisc. and seven other districts for a second consecutive day.

Madison public schools are closed again Thursday because too many teachers are taking the day off to protest Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal to limit union bargaining.

Several other school districts in the area have also canceled classes Thursday.

It’s the second consecutive day the Madison Metropolitan School District has canceled classes “due to substantial concerns about staff absences.”

The district said it has received reports Wednesday evening that there will again be significant staff absences in the district on Thursday in protest of the governor’s proposed changes in labor law.

Superintendent Dan Nerad said teachers who are taking a sick day will be asked to show proof of a medical reason.

Obama and the DNC playing role in Wisconsin protests

The Politico


Washington Post

The Democratic National Committee’s Organizing for America arm – the remnant of the 2008 Obama campaign — is playing an active role in organizing protests against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s attempt to strip most public employees of collective bargaining rights.

Obama voices strong support for Wisconsin public employees: With the standoff continuing to rage over Governor Scott Walker's push to strip public employees of bargaining rights, Obama has now waded into the debate, denouncing Walker's proposal as an "assault on unions."

In an interview with local WTMJ-TV which is now up online, Obama said we all need to "make some adjustments to new fiscal realities," but insisted it's important not to "vilify" public employees and described them as "our neighbors, our friends":

"Some of what I've heard coming out of Wisconsin, where you're just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally seems like more of an assault on unions. And I think it's very important for us to understand that public employees, they're our neighbors, they're our friends. These are folks who are teachers and they're firefighters and they're social workers and they're police officers.

"They make a lot of sacrifices and make a big contribution. And I think it's important not to vilify them or to suggest that somehow all these budget problems are due to public employees."

Klepto Kitty the Kat Burglar


Meet Dusty, a slightly pear-shaped, fawn-colored house cat, whose nightly theft raids have earned him the criminal alias of “Klepto.”

His San Mateo, Calif. owners figured the cat has stolen 600 items from the neighborhood in the past three years, amassing a growing pile of loot at home, ABCNews reported.

He’s not choosy. Stolen goods include towels, stuffed animals, gloves, socks, shoes, spongy footballs. He stole a Converse sneaker and returned later for the other one, the station said. He lifted a neighbor’s bikini bottom drying outside, and came back for the top a few minutes later. He stole someone’s tighty whities.

The best part of ABCNew’s report is the caught-in-the act, night-cam footage, showing Dusty waddling home with stolen stuff dragging between his legs.

His hard-working take for one night? Eleven items.

Democrat Union Marxists/Communists Target Speaker John Boehner's Capitol Hill Residence

Group targets Speaker Boehner’s home in D.C.

Washington Examiner

When did demonstrating at the private homes of politicians or corporate executives become an acceptable way to voice one’s political opinions?

Nearly two dozen activists from DC Vote swarmed House Speaker John Boehner’s Capitol Hill residence at 7:30 Thursday morning, chanting “Don’t tread of D.C.” and “No taxation without representation” to protest congressional “meddling” in the District’s local affairs, in particular a House continuing budget resolution that would cut $80 million in federal payments and prohibit the city from using local funds to pay for needle exchange programs and abortions

“Speaker Boehner is coming to our home telling us how to spend our money,” Ilir Zherka, the group’s executive director, told his followers. “We decided to come to his house to tell him to leave D.C. alone.”

After Capitol Police officers blocked their way by using bikes to erect a makeshift barricade, the protestors remained outside Boehner’s home for more than an hour.

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

This kind of thing will get worse. The more our side takes a stand for America and what has to be done, it will draw more of the sickos out and obama will applaud them.

GOP Attacks Internet Rules

GOP Attacks Internet Rules .

The Wall Street Journal


In a contentious hearing, House Republicans attacked new regulations for broadband Internet lines and criticized the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission for adopting them.

Republicans are targeting the "net neutrality" rules, which would bar Internet providers from blocking or slowing Internet traffic and services, as well as new regulations in such areas as health care and the environment, as unnecessary and overly burdensome on industry.

Why would you put the government in charge of the Internet?" asked Rep. Fred Upton (R., Mich.), who chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, a Democrat, defended the new rules during the hearing, saying the FCC "did the right thing" and that it is "pro-job and pro-investment" for the U.S. economy.

Democratic lawmakers on the panel also defended Mr. Genachowski. Sveral said the FCC hadn't gone far enough in regulating Internet lines. They said the agency should have more firmly established its authority to play Internet traffic cop by reregulating Internet lines under rules designed for land-line phones.

"Without some clear rules of the road, large companies can carve up the Internet into fast and slow lanes, charging a toll for content and blocking innovators from entering the information superhighway," said Rep. Anna Eshoo (D., Calif.), whose district includes many Silicon Valley companies.

Republican lawmakers are trying to stop the new-neutrality rules though various legislative avenues, including an amendment to budget legislation to stop funding to the FCC to implement the new rules.

On Wednesday, Republican leaders in the House and Senate introduced a resolution to overturn the rules using the Congressional Review Act. The effort could win congressional approval, but it is unlikely to be enacted because it needs the approval of President Barack Obama, who supports the FCC's net neutrality rules.

GOP lawmakers and Republican FCC members say the rules could stifle new investments in broadband networks by limiting providers' ability to manage and profit from their networks. In addition, they question whether the FCC has legal authority to enforce the new rules—an issue the courts will ultimately decide.

YESSSSS. Keep it coming Republicans. Love them standing up to the Dems. Taking it to 'em for a change. No more compromises, no more caving.

Mario Andretti Leads IndyCar Contingent to Visit Troops

On a 10-day goodwill tour of Europe and the Middle East with a contingent of IndyCar drivers, Mario Andretti says the group is getting as much out of the experience as the servicemembers they're visiting


Troops and Drivers talk about the Indy 500 Centennial Tour

Mario Andretti leads IndyCar contingent to Europe, Mideast

USA Today

Mario Andretti, the only driver to win the Daytona 500 (1967), the Indianapolis 500 (1969) and the Formula One World Driving Championship (1978), was on a 10-day goodwill trip visiting U.S. servicemembers in Europe and the Middle East with an IndyCar contingent that also incldues Johnny Rutherford, Al Unser Jr., Sarah Fisher, Davey Hamilton and Larry Foyt.

I'm a perfect example of living 'The American Dream' because I'm an immigrant. I arrived in the States and motor racing was the only thing in my mind — besides school, of course — at the age of 15. I started driving here at 19. I would have never had the opportunity if I would have stayed in Italy.

If I would have been born here, obviously there are a lot of things that I would have taken for granted, which is natural. Coming over, realizing what America could provide as far as opportunities for us, gives us a clear appreciation of what's here. I think maybe I have different values. It gives me just a different viewpoint.

I'm quite happy that I was invited to this tour. The invitation came while I was visiting the last race at Homestead. I happened to be taking a general from the National Guard for a ride in the two-seater car. He mentioned something about it. The fact they said, 'Well, maybe we'll have the two-seater car shipped over there, and you can give some rides there.' I said, 'You know what, this sounds good, sounds like an incredibly good idea.'

I've had the opportunity to visit bases around the world before, and I always welcome that opportunity. These young individuals that obviously are out there and serving our country and sacrificing in many different ways. .. if we can bring a smile to their faces for whatever reason, I think it's a great feeling. I hope we all will be able to relay some funny and interesting stories so they can take away some memories.

I had the opportunity to meet one of my heroes, Eddie Sachs, as a youngster in Trenton, N.J. I was shaking in my boots. He actually talked to me. I asked him a question about how he enjoyed the race in Monza, in Italy, when they went there to run on the high banks. He actually answered it to me. I know how those things work. There could be a day that would impress somebody, and that person could become a fan for life. Those are all the things that are important to remember.

I've signed a lot of things over my career — shirts, posters, toy cars and the like — but signing bottles of Andretti wine brought all the way to Germany from California is a real treat. And it shows he has taste.

Lt. Col. Rich Ciao says he's going to put the bottles in a frame. I say drink them and then put the bottles in a frame.

That was part of a program that concluded our day of visiting with wounded soldiers at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center near Ramstein Air Base. He said that it meant so much to soldiers that are executing the mission in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world to have us come and spend some time with them. I think it means more to us.

Brig. Gen. Mark Dillon, the base commander, welcomed us to Ramstein. I was selected to give the General an Indy 500 Centennial Tour helmet that was signed by all the drivers, and he gave me a coin with the 86th Air Lift Wing emblem on it. It's a military tradition, and if you possess a coin and challenge a friend to see if they have one and they don't they buy your choice of drink. I'll have to try that.

Mario Andretti (right) presents an Indy 500 Centennial Tour helmet signed by all the drivers to Brig. Gen. Mark Dillon Bemidji, Minn. Dillon is commander of the 86th Air Wing at Ramstein Air Base in Germany.

Mario Andretti thanks military for helping him live his dream

I always say how lucky I've been throughout my career. I've lived the American dream, and I have to credit the men and women who have fought for our freedom because I wouldn't have been able to do any of it if I wasn't free.

Clearly, it has been a privilege to make this tour and cover so much ground in a short period of time. Every day was special. Every day I looked back and said it was a good day. Everything that we might have expected happened but even more. We got so many thank yous but it's just the opposite.

We are the ones who have to say thank you. I think finally the military is appreciated by all of America, and rightfully so. I say it all the time and it's true that the military is the most noble of professions.

This entire experience has been extremely rewarding for me and I'm sure I speak for the others. Some of the things we have experienced you have to see to believe, and everybody has been so generous with their time.

There is so much of a parallel between the military and what we do. It's all about trying to be excellent and be right at the edge of the envelope all the time. Motor racing is such a team sport and so is the military. You have to work together and have that passion to get the desired results. When I have talked to the pilots, they say they wouldn't want to do anything else. It's the same way with a race car driver.

Personally, I feel that I haven't worked a day in my life because I always looked forward to getting back in that race car. Mechanics and support crews for planes feel that same thing in their own right because they're all racers. They all want to get it right. We win or lose together, but we fight to win.

"There is a camaraderie about it," Andretti said Wednesday, hours before boarding a KC-135 cargo plane bound for New Jersey. "We've fought a lot of battles together, but we're united about this and it's really nice."

No, it wasn't exactly what organizers envisioned -- bringing longtime rivals Mario Andretti and A.J. Foyt together as part of a legends tour.

But it is the next best thing.

Larry Foyt said his father declined the invitation because racing injuries would make the long flight too difficult to cope with. Instead, the four-time Indy winner made a short video that will be shown to the troops, and his son quickly jumped at the chance to fill in for dad.

In the Foyt household, though, that return ticket comes with an unspoken stipulation.

"I said 'If we go karting, I had better beat Mario or A.J. won't let me come home,'" Larry Foyt joked.

Andretti, Foyt and Unser said they have never been on an overseas goodwill tour, though each has visited military installations in the United States.

The troops, who will get to ride around in a red, white and blue two-seat IndyCar emblazoned with the National Guard logo and Andretti's name just outside the cockpit.

IndyCars' nine-member team is expected to fly from New Jersey to Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany on Thursday before heading to the Middle East. It is also scheduled to board an aircraft carrier, though military officials are keeping details of all installations other than Ramstein a secret.

"I know there's been a Foyt and an Unser who were on the same team, but I don't think that [Andretti, Foyt and Unser on the same team] has ever happened," Unser said with a chuckle. "It's going to be a heck of a lot of fun, a lot of excitement and, hopefully, we'll be able to give some thanks to the men and women who stand on that wall 24/7 to give us our freedoms."

. .

Day 4....Indy Drivers visit troops and give a few lucky troops a ride around the Bahrain International Circuit

Also on this video toward the end you can see where our troops signed the car and put the State where they are from with their name.

Day 5 of Tour to visit troops


Wild Thing's comment.....

The vidoes according to the person that posted them at YouTube were shot with a personal camera, so I am not sure if that is why the video's sound track is not consistent on them or not. It comes and goes in spots, but the visuals are well worth watching.

I am so happy for our troops that got to ride and the thrill they had to drive the car Andretti took to the bases.

These Wisconsin Teachers Should Be Fired! Teachers USE Their Students in Protest

FOX Nation

At The John K. MacIver Institute for Public Policy: llegally striking teachers from Madison East High School students dragged hundreds of students to their union protests at the Wisconsin Capitol yesterday. “But they knew they were just happy to be out of class. See this raw video from today’s government union rally in opposition to Governor Scott Walker’s budget repair bill:”

Many of the hundreds of Madison East High School students didn’t know why their teachers brought them to the union protests at the Wisconsin Capitol Tuesday.

But they knew they were just happy to be out of class.

See this raw video above from today’s government union rally in opposition to Governor Scott Walker’s budget repair bill.

Milwaukee Public Schools Orders Teachers Not to Skip School for Rallies (Protests in Wisconsin)


Milwaukee Public Schools on Tuesday sent a district-wide email that ordered teachers and other employees not to skip school to attend rallies protesting Governor Walker's controversial budget bill.

"For the remainder of this week, monitor and record requests for absence, date and time received, notice of request and reason," the email read. "Any staff member who is absent without prior approval is to be coded AWOL (Code 91). Principals are not to approve absence for personal reasons (code 23 or code 69) during the next three days."

32 Rufus King High School teachers called in sick Tuesday morning as thousands of public workers rallied in Madison and in smaller events across Wisconsin against Walker's proposal to eliminate most collective bargaining rights for most state employees. A source told Newsradio 620 WTMJ that the school was caught so shorthanded by the absences that it had to use support staff such as security guards as substitute teachers.

"Those teachers all gave different reasons for why they would be out," said MPS spokesperson Roseann St. Aubin. "So we can't say that this was in any way a planned event, but we know what is going on over in Madison and we chose to act preemptively to prevent any coordinated actions by people who might be affected by this bill and are emotional."

"But our function is to educate our children, and to do that we need to have our teachers in their classrooms."

St. Aubin declined to elaborate on the type of punishment teachers who called in sick this week would face, saying that the district would handle any personnel matters on a case-by-case basis and hand out an appropriate punishment.


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

This is about a conservative governor trying to break the powerful public employee unions including SEIU, NEA and AFSME.

This is precisely why it should not be lawful for public employees to unionize. Throw the garbage out and start all over again .

Obama Planning To Replace General Petraeus as Commander of US and NATO Forces in Afghanistan

REPORT: General Petraeus To Quit As US Commander In Afghanistan

The Times of London is reporting from exclusive sources that General David Petraeus, the commander of the US-led international coalition in Afghanistan, is to be replaced.

“General David Petraeus, the most celebrated American soldier of his generation, is to leave his post as commander of US and Nato forces in Afghanistan. The Times can reveal that the Pentagon aims to replace General Petraeus, who was appointed less than eight months ago, by the end of the year. Sources have confirmed that the search for a new commander in Kabul is under way,” reported The Times.

The report said the US is seeking sweeping changes of top US leadership in Afghanistan with the aim of establishing a view the efforts were not dependent on Petraeus’ reputation. The goal is to replace him by the end of the year.

Petraeus was installed as the commanding general only eight months ago, replacing General Stanley McChrystal who was pushed out over remarks made to a Rolling Stone magazine reporter.

“General Petraeus is doing a brilliant job but he’s been going virtually non-stop since 9/11 [and] he can’t do it forever,” Geoff Morrell, the Pentagon press secretary, told The Times.

Afghanistan: Petraeus, personalities and policy


Petraeus, more than anyone else, has been identified with the intensified military campaign in Afghanistan which, according to critics of the policy, has reduced prospects of a political settlement by alienating Taliban leaders who might otherwise be coaxed into peace talks.

Petraeus has been a towering figure in Washington and difficult to challenge politically. He had what was seen in the United States as a good track record in Iraq. And he was backed by Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — making it very hard for those within the U.S. administration who disagreed with his assessment to win President Barack Obama over to their point of view.

Moreover, Obama had already sacked two generals — Generals David McKiernan and Stanley McChrystal — and could hardly dismiss a third. (If I remember rightly — and no doubt someone will correct me if I am wrong — no president since Abraham Lincoln has changed his generals so frequently in wartime.) Promoting Petraeus would be far easier.

His departure, especially with Gates on his way out, could create the space for Obama to recalibrate Afghan strategy, backing away from the military surge and focusing more on a political settlement - if he wants to do so.

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

Petreaus is a good military man, waging a war he’s not ALLOWED to win, seeing good men being killed and injured. No way he leaves a war un-won after only eight months in charge. That’s not his history; that’s not his style. Petraeus is not being given the freedom to implement his strategy, but instead is being ordered to follow a plan that has no hope of success. So I really think this is all on Obama and his campaign for 2012, his wanting to make the war more like tea time with the taliban then bombing the hell out of the place. To do that he would have to remove or promote Petraeus to clear the way for someone more akin to how obama thinks. Just a guess on my part, I could be wrong.

Obama's DEATH To America Obamacare Means IRS Need New Army Of 1,054 Including 81 IRS Agents to Enforce Tanning Spa Tax

Healthcare Reform Law Requires New IRS Army Of 1,054

US News and World Report

The Internal Revenue Service says it will need an battalion of 1,054 new auditors and staffers and new facilities at a cost to taxpayers of more than $359 million in fiscal 2012 just to watch over the initial implementation of President Obama's healthcare reforms. Among the new corps will be 81 workers assigned to make sure tanning salons pay a new 10 percent excise tax. Their cost: $11.5 million.

"The ACA [Affordable Care Act] will require additional resources to build new IT systems; modify existing tax processing systems; provide taxpayer outreach and assistance services; make enhancements to notices, collections, and case management systems to address and resolve taxpayer issues timely and accurately; and conduct focused examinations to encourage compliance," said the newly released IRS budget.

In its request, the IRS explained that the tax changes associated with health reform are huge. "Implementation of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 presents a major challenge to the IRS. ACA represents the largest set of tax law changes in more than 20 years, with more than 40 provisions that amend the tax laws."

Unsaid: The requests are just the beginning, since the new healthcare program is evolving and won't be fully implemented until about 2014.

The detailed IRS budget documents spell out exactly what most of the new workforce will be doing. For example, some 81 will be tasked just to handle the tax reporting of 25,000 tanning salons. They face a new 10 percent excise tax on indoor tanning services. Another 76 will be assigned to make sure businesses engaged in making and imported drugs pay their new fee which is expected to deliver $2.8 billion to the Treasury in 2012 and 2013. The new healthcare corps will also require new facilities and computers.

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

The obamacrae law has been found unconstitutional, and the majority of the American people continue to not want it.

ObamaCare is NOT about American’s healthcare. Its about how they’re NOT gonna get anymore healthcare...and they’ll pay twice as much to not get it...right to the the point of a gun.

If Obamacare is not stopped our country will be doomed and done with imo. And I have never said doomed on my blog ever before.

Obama Back To Making THREATS!! ~ Just Hours After Saying Come-Let-Us-Reason-Together, Obama Issues Veto Threat!

Hours After Saying Come-Let-Us-Reason-Together, President Obama Issues Veto Threat

ABC News

Obama issued a veto threat Tuesday afternoon against the House GOP “continuing resolution” that would fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year, saying the cuts in the bill would “undermine our ability to out-educate, out-build, and out-innovate the rest of the world” as well as undermine “core government functions and investments key to economic growth and job creation.

And would reduce funding for the Department of Defense to a level that would leave the Department without the resources and flexibility needed to meet vital military requirements.”

Democrats in Congress criticize the GOP cuts, which they say would kick more than 200,000 children out of Head Start, cut $800 per student in the maximum Pell Grant award, eliminate $1.4 billion in funding for science and energy research, and cut $2.5 billion for high-speed rail projects, among other changes.

Earlier in the day, at a press conference, ABC News asked the president about whether he was willing to go along with some House GOP attempts to reduce spending.

OBAMA: “We've Piled Up -- We've Racked Up A Whole Bunch Of Debt.” (President Obama, Press Conference, 2/15/11)

10,627 Billion Dollars – Debt Level On Day One Of Obama Administration
14,083 Billion Dollars – Debt Level Today
26,346 Billion Dollars – Debt Level Set By New White House Budget

Barack Obama tripled the national deficit his first year in office.

Last year it was at $1.29 Trillion dollars.


Barack Obama warned on Tuesday that immediate, deep budget cuts could hurt the fragile economic recovery.

This was after he increased the national debt by $4 trillion or 28% in two years.

Republicans lambasted Obama’s budget for 2012 released this week and demanded cuts now in areas such as education and space exploration. Obama — who promises $1.1 trillion in deficit reduction over 10 years — still wants to invest in areas such as high speed rail and energy efficiency to boost U.S. competitiveness.

The debate is moving toward a standoff. Republicans aim to pass legislation in the House of Representatives by week’s end to cut this year’s spending by at least 14 percent, or $61 billion. The White House says Obama would veto such a bill.

“I think it is important to make sure that we don’t try to make a series of symbolic cuts this year that could endanger the recovery,” he told a news conference.
“We’ve got to be careful … Let’s use a scalpel; let’s not use a machete,” he said.

National Debt Clock....CLICK HERE ...This is in real time

The worst thing of all in all of this is how obama does not care. It would be one thing if we had a huge debt growing due to fighting in wars to defend our country. But that kind of thing is not happening with Obama, he is doing this on purpose and tops it off by his no drilling mandate to cost countless jobs. Add in to that all the other things he has done to hurt and destroy other tpes of business.

McConnell Speaks About Obama's Budget "The Clearest Sign Yet That He Does Not Take Our Fiscal Problems Seriously"

McConnell on the Senate Floor: Obama's Budget "The Clearest Sign Yet That He Does Not Take Our Fiscal Problems Seriously"

McConnell really hits back here saying it's unserious and irresponsible. "The budget was an opportunity for the president to lead, he punted. It only pretends to do things people want...Nobody is buying it...He's clearly misread a public that has had enough"

MCCONNELL: "It’s a patronizing plan that says to the American people that their concerns are not his concerns, It’s a plan that says the president’s vision of a future of trains and windmills is more important than a balanced checkbook, it’s a plan that asks our children to pay for an imaginary vision of the future that may or may not come about"

How the President’s Budget Destroys Jobs: $8.7 Trillion in New Spending, $1.6 Trillion in New Taxes, $13 Trillion in New Debt

From Speaker John Boehner:

Obama sent Congress a $3.73 trillion budget that destroys jobs by spending too much, taxing too much and borrowing too much. The House and Senate Budget Committees, led by Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Ranking Member Jeff Sessions (R-AL) respectively, have provided an overview of how President Obama’s budget will make it harder to create new jobs today and mortgages the future of our children and grandchildren. For example, the Obama Administration wants to:

Obama sent Congress a $3.73 trillion budget that destroys jobs by spending too much, taxing too much and borrowing too much.

The House and Senate Budget Committees have provided an overview of how President Obama’s budget will make it harder to create new jobs today and mortgages the future of our children and grandchildren. For example, the Obama Administration wants to:

*Increase spending by more than $8.7 trillion, despite the recommendation of 150 economists who have told the White House that spending cuts are needed to create a better environment for job creation;

*Impose $1.6 trillion in new taxes, imposing higher costs on job creators and creating more uncertainty at a time when our unemployment rate has been at or above nine percent for 21 consecutive months;
*Add $13 trillion to the national debt, doubling the debt over the President’s first term and tripling it in the 10 years after he first took office


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

And John Boehner said the budget will impose $1.6 trillion in new taxes, imposing higher costs on job creators and creating more uncertainty at a time when our unemployment rate has been at or above nine percent for 21 consecutive months .

Obama Akbar screams death to America!!!!

Muslim coke-head Obama is trying to destroy America from within, how much more evidence will it take till people start to wake up? He needs to be impeached for reckless destruction of America and THAT list is very long.

The 15 Tax Hikes Hidden in Obama’s New Budget

Over the last two years, the president has regularly touted his fight to lower taxes for Americans. In fact, his latest budget proposal offered up today is being billed as a package of tough cuts. But buried within the budget’s rhetoric and numerous pages are actually a healthy amount of increases — tax increases, that is. 15 of them.

The folks over at Business Insider note “the budget contains as much as $1.5 trillion in hikes over ten years,” thanks to some diligent sleuthing by the group Americans for Tax Reform.

Here are the hidden increases:

Raising the top marginal income tax rate (at which a majority of small business profits face taxation) from 35% to 39.6%. This is a $709 billion/10 year tax hike

Raising the capital gains and dividends rate from 15% to 20%

Raising the death tax rate from 35% to 45% and lowering the death tax exemption amount from $5 million ($10 million for couples) to $3.5 million. This is a $98 billion/ten year tax hike

Capping the value of itemized deductions at the 28% bracket rate. This will effectively cut tax deductions for mortgage interest, charitable contributions, property taxes, state and local income or sales taxes, out-of-pocket medical expenses, and unreimbursed employee business expenses. A new means-tested phaseout of itemized deductions limits them even more. This is a $321 billion/ten year tax hike .

New bank taxes totaling $33 billion over ten years

New international corporate tax hikes totaling $129 billion over ten years

New life insurance company taxes totaling $14 billion over ten years

Massive new taxes on energy, including LIFO repeal, Superfund, domestic energy manufacturing, and many others totaling $120 billion over ten years

Increasing unemployment payroll taxes by $15 billion over ten years

Taxing management capital gains in an investment partnership (“carried interest”) as ordinary income. This is a tax hike of $15 billion over ten years

A giveaway to the trial lawyers—not letting companies deduct the cost of punitive damages from a lawsuit settlement. This is a tax hike of $300 million over ten years

Increasing tax penalties, information reporting, and IRS information sharing. This is a ten-year tax hike of $20 billion.

Obama's FY2012 Budget:Taxes, Taxes, and More Taxes and BIGGER Government!!!!!

FOX Business Network David Asman on President Obamas budget proposal and why it hints at more wasteful spending.

Obama's FY2012 Budget:Taxes, Taxes, and More Taxes

Americans for Tax Reform

Obama released his budget this morning. Rather than focusing on Washington’s over-spending problem, the budget calls for higher taxes on families and small businesses to pay for even more government spending. Under the Obama budget, tax revenues will grow from 14.4% of GDP in 2011 to 20% of GDP in 2021. By comparison, the historical average is only 18% of GDP.

Tax hike lowlights include:

•Raising the top marginal income tax rate (at which a majority of small business profits face taxation) from 35% to 39.6%. This is a $709 billion/10 year tax hike
•Raising the capital gains and dividends rate from 15% to 20%
•Raising the death tax rate from 35% to 45% and lowering the death tax exemption amount from $5 million ($10 million for couples) to $3.5 million. This is a $98 billion/ten year tax hike
•Capping the value of itemized deductions at the 28% bracket rate. This will effectively cut tax deductions for mortgage interest, charitable contributions, property taxes, state and local income or sales taxes, out-of-pocket medical expenses, and unreimbursed employee business expenses. A new means-tested phaseout of itemized deductions limits them even more. This is a $321 billion/ten year tax hike
•New bank taxes totaling $33 billion over ten years
•New international corporate tax hikes totaling $129 billion over ten years
•New life insurance company taxes totaling $14 billion over ten years
•Massive new taxes on energy, including LIFO repeal, Superfund, domestic energy manufacturing, and many others totaling $120 billion over ten years
•Increasing unemployment payroll taxes by $15 billion over ten years
•Taxing management capital gains in an investment partnership (“carried interest”) as ordinary income. This is a tax hike of $15 billion over ten years
•A giveaway to the trial lawyers—not letting companies deduct the cost of punitive damages from a lawsuit settlement. This is a tax hike of $300 million over ten years
•Increasing tax penalties, information reporting, and IRS information sharing. This is a ten-year tax hike of $20 billion.
Add it all together, and this budget is a ten-year, $1.5 trillion tax hike over present law. That’s $1.5 trillion taken out of the economy and spent on government instead of being used to create jobs.

The “tax relief” in the budget is mostly just an extension of present law, and also some refundable credit outlay spending in the tax code. There is virtually no new tax relief relative to present law in the President’s budget.

Geithner Quietly Tells Obama Debt-to-GDP Cost Poised to Increase to Record


Barack Obama may lose the advantage of low borrowing costs as the U.S. Treasury Department says what it pays to service the national debt is poised to triple amid record budget deficits.

Interest expense will rise to 3.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2016, from 1.3 percent in 2010 with the government forecast to run cumulative deficits of more than $4 trillion through the end of 2015, according to page 23 of a 24-page presentation made to a 13-member committee of bond dealers and investors that meet quarterly with Treasury officials.

While some of the lowest borrowing costs on record have helped the economy recover from its worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, bond yields are now rising as growth resumes. Net interest expense will triple to an all-time high of $554 billion in 2015 from $185 billion in 2010, according to the Obama administration’s adjusted 2011 budget.

“It’s a slow train wreck coming and we all know it’s going to happen,” said Bret Barker, an interest-rate analyst at Los Angeles-based TCW Group Inc., which manages about $115 billion in assets. “It’s just a question of whether we want to deal with it. There are huge structural changes that have to go on with this economy.”

The amount of marketable U.S. government debt outstanding has risen to $8.96 trillion from $5.8 trillion at the end of 2008, according to the Treasury Department. Debt-service costs will climb to 82 percent of the $757 billion shortfall projected for 2016 from about 12 percent in last year’s deficit, according to the budget projections.

Forecasts of higher interest expenses raises the pressure on Obama to plan for trimming the deficit. The President, who has called for a five-year freeze on discretionary spending other than national security, sent Congress a $3.7 trillion budget today that projects the federal deficit will exceed $1 trillion for the fourth consecutive year in 2012 before falling to more “sustainable” levels by the middle of the decade.

“If government debt and deficits were actually to grow at the pace envisioned, the economic and financial effects would be severe,” Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke told the House Budget Committee Feb. 9. “Sustained high rates of government borrowing would both drain funds away from private investment and increase our debt to foreigners, with adverse long-run effects on U.S. output, incomes, and standards of living.”

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

“Under the Obama budget, tax revenues will grow from 14.4% of GDP in 2011 to 20% of GDP in 2021.”

This was part of the plan all along. Make things so messed up that everyone finally agrees to permanently increase the size of the federal government’s take from the productive sector of society. Ironically, instead of closing the deficit, that would just increases the base from which larger deficits will be run up next time the dems get in the driver’s seat.

In the early days of America's experiment in liberty, its Founders warned of oppressive taxation by those elected to represent the people. Under their "People's" Constitution, the people were left free, and the government was limited.

The following statement by Sir Winston Churchill, upon leaving office as Prime Minister in 1945:

"I do not believe in the power of the State to plan and enforce. No matter how numerous are the committees they set up or the ever-growing hordes of officials they employ or the severity of the punishments they inflict or threaten, they can't approach the high level of internal economic production achieved under free enterprise. Personal initiative, competitive selection, and profit motive corrected by failure and the infinite processes of good housekeeping and personal ingenuity, these constitute the life of a free society. It is this vital creative impulse that I deeply fear the doctrines and policies of the socialist government has destroyed. Nothing that they can plan and order and rush around enforcing will take its place. They have broken the main spring and until we get a new one, the watch wil not go. Set the people free. Get out of the way and let them make the best of themselves. I am sure that this policy of equalizing misery and organizing society--instead of allowing diligence, self-interest and ingenuity to produce abundance--has only to be prolonged to kill this British Island stone dead."

As government creates no wealth and has no money, the pay for every job in government must first come out of the pockets of hardworking citizens in the private sector. Ahhh, guess that's what you call "redistributing" wealth!

Border Officer Reveals Weapon of Mass Destruction Was Found in the US

Questions Raised Over Weapons Of Mass Effect In San Diego Nukes found at Port part 1


Nukes found at Port of San Diego? Part 2


Nukes found at Port of San Diego? Part 3

'A weapon of mass destruction was found in the U.S.': Shock confession of Customs officer

San Diego’s assistant port director told a television channel in the city that a ‘weapon of mass effect’ has been found by ‘partner agencies’ in the U.S.

A port official has admitted that a ‘weapon of mass effect’ has been found by ‘partner agencies’ in the U.S., raising major questions over a possible government cover-up.

The disturbing revelation came in an interview with San Diego’s assistant port director screened by a television channel in the city.

The Customs and Border Protection Department tried to dampen speculation over his remarks, but doubts remained over whether he had inadvertently revealed a dirty bomb plot to attack the U.S. mainland.

Concern over a secret WMD bust came after U.S. cables made public by the Wikileaks whistleblower website revealed terror groups were plotting a ‘nuclear 911.’

In the interview screened by San Diego’s 10News, Al Hallor, assistant San Diego port director, said ‘weapons of mass effect’ had been found, although he did not specify exactly where or what they were.

Reporter Mitch Blacher asked Mr Hallor: ‘Do you ever find things that are dangerous like a chemical agent or a weaponised device?’

‘At the airport, seaport, at our port of entry we have not this past fiscal year, but our partner agencies have found those things,’ the customs official replied.

So, specifically, you're looking for the dirty bomb? You're looking for the nuclear device?’ asked Mr Blacher.

‘Correct. Weapons of mass effect,’ said Mr Hallor.

‘You ever found one?’ asked Mr Blacher.

‘Not at this location,’ Mr Hallor said.

‘But they have found them?’ asked Mr Blacher.

‘Yes,’ said Mr Hallor.

‘You never found one in San Diego though?’ Mr Blacher asked.

‘I would say at the port of San Diego we have not,’ Mr Hallor said.

‘Have you found one in San Diego?’ Mr Blacher asked.

The interview was then interrupted and cut short by a public relations official before Mr Hallor was able to answer the question.

San Diego's Customs and Border Protection agency was unavailable for comment today.

Earlier, Mr Hallor told Mr Blacher: ‘Potentially every city in America is a target. Given the waterways and the access to the Navy fleet here, I’d say, absolutely, San Diego is a target.

He was explaining how the port checks cargo ships arriving at the port. He suggested the customs ‘partner agencies’ may have found the 'weapons of mass effect.'

Former Secret Service agent and airline security director Glen Winn told 10News Mr Hallor’s comments appeared to be credible.

‘This person was, I believe, knowledgeable, has a very important position with the port and the government and as such has that knowledge,’ he said.

‘You posed some very serious questions as to security gaps and discoveries that perhaps have taken place in this area.

'I want to know how many and where did you find them so if I'm in that area, driving around and I see something that is out of place, I make a phone call,’ he added.

But 10News said a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security told them Mr Hallor was 'just nervous' in the interview and 'mis-spoke'.

The spokesman denied officials said weapons of mass destruction had never been found in the U.S.- but would not answer questions about dirty bombs or chemical weapons.

After the interview, the Customs and Border Protection department in San Diego issued a statement denying it had dealt with any nuclear-related smuggling attempts.

‘CBP has not specifically had any incidents with nuclear devices or nuclear materials at our ports of entry,’ it said.

‘CBP is an all-threats agency. The purpose of many security measures is to prevent threats from ever materializing by being prepared for them.

'And, we must be prepared to stop threats in whatever form they do materialise at the border, whether it’s an individual or cargo arriving by land, air, or sea.

'Regardless of what the contraband or threat is, we’re being smart, evaluating, and focusing in on anything or anyone that is potentially high-risk.’

No WMDs have ever been smuggled into the US, or, a least, none have been disclosed.

There were reports more than six years ago that al Qaeda was planning to try and sneak a bomb through a secret tunnel into Arizona from northern Mexico, although it was never substantiated. Just last year, a 2,200 ft cross-border drugs tunnel was discovered in San Diego, complete with lighting and ventilation.

One reason for covering up a known attempt would be to prevent public panic. Just three days ago, acting Inspector General of the Department of Justice, Cynthia Schnedar, criticised U.S. efforts to prepare for a potential WMD attack as 'uncoordinated and fragmented'.

While the FBI had made adequate precautions for dealing with a WMD fallout, other branches of the DOJ were not sufficiently ready.

With the exception of the FBI, other departments had no training, did not participate in drills and had not selected an individual to take charge over WMD response operations, she said.

'In addition, while the department had designated the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives as the lead agency to coordinate the use of federal law enforcement resources to maintain public safety and security if local and state resources are overwhelmed during a WMD incident, ATF had not adequately prepared for this role,' she added.

A year ago, the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism said the U.S. government should be doing more to prevent the nuclear threat.

Work to improve the nation's response to biological attacks and efforts to reform intelligence gathering and other aspects of homeland security all received an 'F' on the report.

I think people should know about what is going on. Especially with obama and his administration being in charge and how they favor the enemy and not America. I agree with the man that said if people know they can be more aware if they see or hear of something.

Obama Hates America, Big and Small Business and Now HE Is To Blame For Major Oil Company To Go Bankrupt

Obama's drilling moratorium causes major company to go bankrupt

The American Thinker

On top of tens of thousands of workers losing their jobs when Obama imposed a drilling moratorium by executive order (and fudging what scientists and experts believed in order to justify his moratorium) now comes news that Seahawk Drilling, a major publicly-held drilling services company, has declared bankruptcy due to the sharp decline in Gulf drilling work.

From USA Today:

Seahawk Drilling Inc. said it has filed for bankruptcy protection and plans to sell its fleet of offshore drilling rigs to a competitor for $105 million.

Seahawk, which announced the deal with Hercules Offshore Inc. Friday, has been hurt by a slowdown in Gulf of Mexico drilling after the BP oil spill last April. The government halted drilling in deep waters and imposed tough new rules that have curtained all energy exploration in U.S. waters.

Employees will be let go; shareholders are suffering big losses as the stock plunges. Gulf communities have already been stricken by big job losses and declines in state tax revenues. We have become even more dangerously dependent on overseas sources of crude and prices have skyrocketed as Obama turned the handle to the off position when it comes to Gulf oil drilling.

There has been a lot of damage caused by Barack Obama's policies and there will be a lot more to come as long as he is in office.

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

To Dictator obama this is a success! Destroying America just as he dreamed his entire pathetic life.

What is next? Obama to issue an executive order to declare the Constitution void and himself President for Life????

"There has been a lot of damage caused by Barack Obama's policies and there will be a lot more to come as long as he is in office."

This should be a headline on every newspaper and scrolling at the bottom of every TV!

Obama and Obama's Administration Official Urges Cable Companies to Carry Al-Jazeera

Obama administration official urges cable companies to carry Al-Jazeera

The American Thinker

AL Jazeera is filled with anti-American propaganda. It is also awash in anti-Semitism. The material broadcast stokes terror and violence.

Why would the person who Barack Obama appointed to be the Assistant Secretary at the Department of Homeland Security, Juliette Kayyem, advocate American cable companies carry the channel-a channel that cannot help but inflame tensions and anger and one that is not known for unbiased accuracy.

From an op-ed by Kayyem in the Boston Globe:

FOR THE past few weeks, a parallel plot line to the revolutions in the Arab world has been playing out in the media. With rare exceptions, the largest American cable and satellite providers simply do not provide viewers access to Al Jazeera English, the cousin to the powerful Qatar-based world news network. AJE has launched a full-fledged campaign - including advertisements quoting, of all people, major US news figures - to convince cable carriers to open their programming. But most have declined: Burlington, Vt., is the closest city to Boston where viewers can see the network on television.

AJE's battle with the cable carriers is major news in the Middle East. Not carrying the network sends a message to the Arab world about America's willingness to accept information, unfiltered, from the very region we spend so much time talking about. These television wars began not in Tunisia or Egypt, but in Iraq.

We have enough terror apologists in the media already without an entire station devoted to obscuring the truth being beamed into America's homes.

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

Let me understand this, he wants cable to carry al jazera but just a couple months ago was trying to bully fox off the air! Obama your MUSLIM self is showing AGAIN! His promotion of all things Islam shows who he is.

Since when is it the Government or Presidents business to urge any cable company to carry any thing?

Who Is Most Clueless---The Administration Or The Media? by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Who Is Most Clueless---The Administration Or The Media?

by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Fact 1: Most Egyptians hate America. America has kept the Mubarak dictatorship in power for almost 30 years as he amassed wealth for himself, family and his close friends. With the people discontent and the economy in shambles, the military probably had the most to do with insisting that Mubarak cede his power to them and onward to an as yet undefined new leadership.

Fact 2: Most Egyptians are Muslim and believe in Sharia Law. Christians are a minority in Egypt and fear for their lives not knowing who will ultimately lead their nation.

Fact 3: The CIA totally missed the clues preceding the Egyptian uprising against Mubarak. Director of Intelligence for the Obama administration, James Clapper, was delusional or lying when he characterized the Muslim Brotherhood as a secular group which does not eschew violence as a means of establishing Islam as the world’s single religion and culture. The Muslim Brotherhood’s doctrine follows the Koran with the goal of establishing Sharia Law internationally and endorses terrorism if necessary to accomplish that goal. We have no idea yet what role the Muslim Brotherhood will play in Egypt’s new future.

Fact 4: The Obama Administration, hated by the Egyptian people, pulled a narcissistic John Kerry imitation by first supporting Mubarak and then repudiating him in favor of the protesters who were winning according to feed from CNN (sadly Obama’s only intelligence resource during the crisis). And the American lamestreet media also followed the same chorus without a clue as to what was really happening (outlined in Fact #1).

The Egyptian people have suffered not only under the tyranny of the Mubarak’s regime but a deteriorating economy even as the Mubarak family fortune is estimated in the billions of dollars with assets in Switzerland and Britain. The military has been financed with the help of 1.3 billion U.S. dollars each year. Question now is what happens under military rule. And when/if elections occur who will emerge as the new leader of Egypt? Will that leader respect America and Israel’s existence and, if not, will America cut off aid to Egypt’s military? What domino effect would an anti-American/anti-Israeli government in Egypt have across the Middle East?

The CIA revealed its lack of insight into the Egyptian situation and spokesman Clapper is delusional or alternatively was commanded by someone else to publicly paint a false picture of the Muslim Brotherhood, as if to endorse them should they be a significant role in Egypt’s future government. His speech confirms this Administration’s empathy for (if not fear of) Islam while disrespecting America’s identity and the government’s needs to call out radical Islam as the root of worldwide terror and violence.

Obama used the national media to pontificate regarding the Egyptian government shakeup, when he would have done better to keep his mouth shut since his Administration has no influence on events in Egypt, not even the respect of the Egyptian people. His attempt to portray the uprising by the Egyptian people as bringing about needed (but unspecified) ‘change’ analogous to that which he promised to bring to America if elected President is pure narcissism. It is paradoxical that Obama calls for a transition to ‘democracy’ in Egypt, while his Administration has tried to move America away from democracy by usurping states and individual rights and trying to place them under control of the federal government.

Finally, the U.S. media including FOX reporters like Shep Smith were nearsighted and read to America only what is handed to them from clueless reporters on the ground in Egypt. It is frightening that our government and our media pretended to know and understand the inner dynamics of the Egyptian crisis when in hindsight they did not. Their shallow idiocy continues until We the People change that.

Some in Black Caucus Embrace GOP Member (Rep.Allen West) , But Others ‘leery’

"For whatever reason, I'm a high profile freshman and the liberal left is absolutely terrified of me," West said. In fact, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has already launched a radio campaign against him. "One thing you should never do is let a military man know he gets under your skin, cause I'm gonna exploit that," West said.
When in Washington when away from him home in Florida, West lives in a basement apartment in Washington, D.C. that he affectionately calls the "bat cave" -- an extension of his "batman" nickname from when he was a kid.

West's favorite item in his office is a painting of George Washington at Valley Forge.

The Hill

A conservative lawmaker has made friends with liberal colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), but others are skeptical of him.

Some in the caucus have embraced freshman Rep. Allen West (Fla.), who is the first Republican to join the CBC since 1996.

Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), a CBC member, said, “He’s not like what I’ve read, I’ll say that. He seems to be cordial and friendly. He and I have developed a rapport.”

Still, some are “leery” of West, according to a CBC member who requested anonymity.

West raised some eyebrows in a CBC meeting soon after the assassination attempt of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

After members expressed concern for their safety, West, a two-decade plus Army veteran, said members should consider carrying a concealed weapon.

In an interview with The Hill this week, West said, “They were talking about getting detailed security and I said, ‘Well you just look in your state as far as getting a concealed weapons licensing,’ which is something that I have. I think personal protection starts with yourself, but you just coordinate with local law enforcement to make sure you have collateral security at your events.”

CBC member Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) said West’s suggestion didn’t go over well, adding it was “frowned” on by other lawmakers.

Legislators in the CBC seem sensitive to reports highlighting controversial remarks attributed to West, including one recent statement that appeared to single out fellow CBC member Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) for his Muslim beliefs.

West argued that his initial comment that Ellison’s beliefs “represent the antithesis of the principles upon which this country was established” were misconstrued. He said the comments were “not about his Islamic faith, but about his continued support of [the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)].”

CAIR is a controversial group whose critics have alleged that it has ties to Hamas.

West said the media’s coverage of him has not affected his relationships with members of the CBC.
“It doesn’t affect my relationship whatsoever. I define who I am – not someone with a pen and a pad. That’s the most important thing. If folks want to continue to write the kind of foolishness and chicanery that they seem to be up to, let them do that,” West said...

He said he has enjoyed being a part of the CBC, which consists of 43 members.

His decision to join CBC attracted headlines, which he has done often over the last several months.

West hired, and then quickly replaced, a chief of staff who has a history of inflammatory remarks. He said President Obama should put himself in harm’s way when he visits U.S. troops in war zones. And the 50-year-old lawmaker earlier this month appeared with disgraced former Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.).

Conservative activists have praised West for his frank style and his commitment to cut government spending. West is the keynote speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference this weekend.

CBC Chairman Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) said West has been “no different than any other member.”

“He’s not alien to Democrats. He is a former military leader who probably speaks in a different tone than a majority of the CBC members on issues of the war and those old social issues that divide Democrats and Republicans,” Cleaver said.

West joined the CBC to offer a different perspective and said his party label has not hindered his ability to fit in.

West indicated he is proud of the CBC, noting it has “a political influence across the entire spectrum. I mean, how often do you have a member of the CBC who’s the keynote speaker of CPAC?”

Rookie U.S. Rep. Allen West taking bulldog's approach

WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Allen West recoils at the word.

"I am not a freshman," the Florida lawmaker says. "I turned 50 yesterday. I spent 22 years in the United States military. I led troops in combat."

Only a month on the job, West is bucking the seen-not-heard advice given to new lawmakers. He is taking a bulldog approach, barreling to the top of political insiders' lists of the most vulnerable members of Congress. A complex figure, West is:

A Republican who joined both the liberal Congressional Black Caucus and the rigidly conservative tea party caucus.

A sharp-talker who rebuked the first elected Muslim lawmaker in Congress and accused his own party leaders of not working hard enough, not cutting the budget deep enough.

A retired Army colonel with credentials to land an appearance on Meet the Press and regular spots on other national TV shows.

A provocative speaker who on Saturday delivered the closing speech at a major gathering of conservative activists in Washington, a slot that had been Sarah Palin's before she canceled.

"We welcome the beliefs of others in America, but our co-existence must be based on a simple premise: When tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide. An American cultural value shall never be subjugated to any other as long as I have air in my lungs," West said, stirring thousands to their feet at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

It was 25 minutes of red meat, accusing China of using capitalism "as a weapon against us," pillorying "liberal progressivism," and saying the country needs to reclaim its Judeo-Christian values.

"I have goose bumps," Jane Lawler-Savitske, a 63-year-old tea party follower from Springfield, Va., said after the speech.

One-on-one, West seems detached from the wild campaign persona, the man who spewed invective toward President Barack Obama and "liberals," draped himself in tea party yellow, covered his flat top in a red-white-and-blue bandana, the YouTube sensation.

In white shirtsleeves and with bookish round glasses, West looks like a middle manager — except for the camouflage bag he carries instead of a briefcase. He barely gets animated during a 30-minute interview in his hyper-organized, seventh-floor office, which by coincidence is next to one held by the man who headed the 2010 Democratic campaign effort, Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland.

"If we sit complacent and if we don't pay attention to what's going on right now, we will find ourselves once again becoming slaves to a tyrannical government," he said at a tea party rally. "You cannot stand down. You cannot stop being vigilant. And just as this T-shirt says … we must tell this government, 'Don't tread on me.' "

When the new Republican leaders of the House announced a work schedule that had members back in their districts more often, he complained to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, "an unusual power play move by a freshman," as the Capitol newspaper the Hill put it.

"The American people are depending upon us to be up here and doing the business of righting the ship," he said.

He was also among freshman Republicans who criticized their leaders' budget-cutting effort, which initially fell far short of the $100 billion promised on the campaign trail. "You start to look like a back-tracker," West said.

The pressure caused budget officials to take another look, and gave weight to the 87 new Republican members. West seems determined to emerge as a voice for the group.

In January, West drew fire for saying that Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim member of Congress, "really does represent the antithesis of the principles upon which this country was established." A group of religious leaders condemned West, who insisted he was referring to Ellison's support for the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

"One of the critical things that if we do not get beyond will end up destroying this country," West said, "is political correctness."

Speaker John Boehner: Obama’s Budget Will Destroy Jobs By “Spending Too Much, Borrowing Too Much and Taxing Too Much”


Barack Obama’s budget plan for 2012 would slash the deficit by $1.1 trillion over 10 years, officials said on Sunday, but Republicans were unimpressed and vowed to push for deeper cuts in spending.

White House budget director Jack Lew said the proposal to be unveiled on Monday puts the government on track to halve the budget deficit by the end of Obama’s first term in office, which extends through 2012.

“We are reducing programs that are important programs that we care about, and we’re doing what every family does when it sits around its kitchen table: we’re making the choices about what do we need for the future,” Lew said on CNN.

Republicans, who control the House of Representatives, said Obama’s proposed spending cuts would not do enough to rein in the growing federal deficit and promised their own plan would go further.

“He’s going to present a budget tomorrow that will continue to destroy jobs by spending too much, borrowing too much and taxing too much,” House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

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

We need a Tea Party the size of what we saw in Egypt.Can you imagine if that happened and everyone could show up in D.C.

Boehner did a good job on the show Sunday morning, he stayed strong and when they tried get him to cave on things he did not fall for it.

Representative Allen West (R-Florida) Wraps Up C.P.A.C.

CPAC: Rep. Allen West Keynote Speech (Part 1)


CPAC: Rep. Allen West Keynote Speech (Part 2)


CPAC: Rep. Allen West Keynote Speech (Part 3)

The 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) closed out its three-day event Saturday evening with a rousing keynote address delivered by Rep. Allen West, R-Fla.

Though libertarian-leaning Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, walked away with another straw poll victory this year, West delivered a speech that rejected Paul’s ardent non-interventionist national defense stance, and instead insisted the United States’ role in the world is to lead with moral courage and steadfast leadership against tyranny. One of West’s largest ovations came after he unapologetically declared that America should never abandon her alliance with Israel.

“Peace begins with courageous leaders who are willing to identify and defy our enemies and their objectives,” he said, “Because political correctness has no place in our national security agenda.”

In describing his personal journey to Washington, West took a swipe at critics’ charges of conservative “racism” and pointedly remarked, “Perhaps they should see who is standing up as your keynote speaker.”

The Colonel also touched on the importance of faith and respecting the oath to protect the U.S. Constitution — an oath West said he took “to be a guardian for the conservative principles that make America the greatest nation that the world has ever known.” He also denounced “liberal progressivism” that “has repeatedly failed all over the world.”

The most important pillar for Rep. Allen West? The commitment to one’s own values.

“We do not separate faith from the individual. We must never forget that the American motto is ‘In God We Trust,’” he said. “We welcome the beliefs of others in America, but when tolerance becomes a one-way street it leads to cultural suicide.”

“We stand on the precedence of greatness for this nation, but if we forget what brought us to where we are, if we forget these pillars there will be no America to pass on to our generations,” he concluded.

“If We Are to Have a New Dawn in America, it Means Reclaiming our Judeo-Christian Heritage”

WoW !! A stirring speech showing a man of courage and character. Outstanding!

Thank God for this warrior and keep him safe.

Nicolas Sarkozy Joins England's Cameron and Germany's Merkel In Condemning " multiculturalism has failed it fosters extremism" ~ Are you listening America?

Secretly filmed footage from the Markazi Jamia mosque shows a teacher pulling a pupil towards him and striking him on the back

Secret filming at Muslim schools in Birmingham and Yorkshire shows pupils being beaten and 'taught Hindus drink cow p***'


It is an assembly hall of the sort found in any ordinary school. Boys aged 11 and upwards sit cross-legged on the floor in straight rows.

They face the front of the room and listen carefully. But this is no ordinary assembly. Holding the children’s attention is a man in Islamic dress wearing a skullcap and stroking his long dark beard as he talks.

‘You’re not like the non-Muslims out there,’ the teacher says, gesturing towards the window. ‘All that evil you see in the streets, people not wearing the hijab properly, people smoking . . . you should hate it, you should hate walking down that street.’

He refers to the ‘non-Muslims’ as the ‘Kuffar’, an often derogatory term that means disbeliever or infidel.

Welcome to one of Britain’s most influential Islamic faith schools, one of at least 2,000 such schools in Britain, some full-time, others part-time.

They represent a growing, parallel education system.

The school is the Darul Uloom Islamic High School in Birmingham, an oversubscribed independent secondary school.

Darul Ulooms are world-renowned Islamic institutions and their aim is to produce the next generation of Muslim leaders.

In fact, these schools have been described as the ‘Etons of Islam’.

This school is required by its inspectors to teach tolerance and respect for other faiths. But the Channel 4 current affairs programme Dispatches filmed secretly inside it – and instead discovered that Muslim children are being taught religious apartheid and social segregation.

We recorded a number of speakers giving deeply disturbing talks about Jews, Christians and atheists.

We found children as young as 11 learning that Hindus have ‘no intellect’ and that they ‘drink cow p***’.

And we came across pupils being told that the ‘disbelievers’ are ‘the worst creatures’ and that Muslims who adopt supposedly non-Muslim ways, such as shaving, dancing, listening to music and – in the case of women – removing their headscarves, would be tortured with a forked iron rod in the afterlife.

In 2009 this school was praised by Government-approved inspection teams for its interfaith teachings. The report said that ‘pupils learn about the beliefs and practices of other faiths and are taught to show respect to other world religions’.

You can continue reading this article HERE.

Nicolas Sarkozy joins the David Cameron and Angela Merkel view that multiculturalism has failed


French president Nicolas Sarkozy has joined David Cameron in condemning multiculturalism as a failure.

Cameron launched a scathing attack earlier this months on 30 years of multiculturalism in Britain warning that it fostered extremism.

His damning verdict came just months after German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that multiculturalism in Germany had failed.

Now Sarkozy has joined the growing number of European leaders who have adopted identical views on multiculturalism.

He told the French people: 'We have been too concerned about the identity of the person who was arriving and not enough about the identity of the country that was receiving him.'

The president made the declaration in a TV debate last night after being asked if the policy of encouraging the religious and cultural differences of immigrants was not working.

He told viewers: 'My answer is clearly yes, it is a failure.

'Of course we must all respect differences, but we do not want a society where communities coexist side by side.


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

Multicultural is, by it’s very nature, equating all cultures as equal. “tolerant” Left thinks that’s okay in the interest of not offending anyone. And they’ve so dominated our academia with this idea that they’ve abandoned the moral authority to condemn atrocities because when you embrace all morality - even what seems immoral - you have no foundation left to stand on.

There must be assimilation to their host country.

All of this makes it even more obvious how bad obama and his administration are for America. Here we now have
Cameron , German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy saying it does not work loud and clear.

At present, our government allows the Muslim Brotherhood to establish cells in just about every state in the country. And at the same time we have the DHS putting Veterans and Patriots on their possible terrorist list.
God help us!

OMG.... Obama Referring To Himself as “The Gipper" In Farewell To Gibbs ~ How DARE He Do That!!!!!!!!

Obama recounts an anecdote about the 2004 Democratic National Convention at White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs' final press briefing:"The most challenging problem was what tie to wear. And this went up to the very last minute I mean, 10 minutes before we were about to go on stage we were still having an argument about ties. I had bought five, six ties. And Michelle didn't like any of them, Axelrod didn't like a couple of them -- him being one of the best dressed men in the world. So we really valued his opinion."And then somebody -- I don't remember who it was -- turned and said, 'You know what? What about Gibbs' tie? What about Gibbs' tie? That might look good.' And, frankly, Robert didn't want to give it up because he thought he looked really good in the tie. But eventually he was willing to take one for the gipper, and so he took off his tie, and I put it on. And that's the tie that I wore at the national convention."

Obama presents a neck tie to Press Secretary Robert Gibbs (L) during Gibbs last briefing in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, DC, on February 11, 2011. Gibbs gave Obama the tie to wear during his speech at the 2004 Democratic.

POS Obama!!!! What a pathetic wannabee......FAIL....loser dirtbag.He is a pathetic phony loser, who should be frog marched right out of the Whitehouse and into federal prison! Whenever I See his face I change the channel I can’t stand the sight of him. When he calls himself the Gipper, he is NOT showing respect for Reagan, he is mocking him, he is making fun of him by doing so!

Everything is a act for this idiot.

I absolutely am beyond disgusted by this Marxist Muslim.

And the only laughable thing about this POS speech about Gibbs leaving is obama is giving background of a “clothing drama”. There are few things that one would want to know less about. This is all about Hussian, even when it is supposed to be about Gibbs. Obama the Narcissist !

Hosni Mubarak Resigns as President of Egypt

Hosni Mubarak Resigns as President of Egypt

Egyptian Vice-President Omar Suleiman reading a brief statement announcing that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is stepping down after more than 30 years as ruler of Egypt. Mubarak has surrendered governing of the nation to Egypt’s military leadership.


This is a video of the celebration underway in Egypt at the news of Mubarak’s resignation.


Wild Thing's comment......

Can we get rid of Obama in the same way?

Have you noticed this, the date from yesterday when he resigned? ........02-11-2011 .......Interesting date, it does not mean anything, I just thought it was interesting. .

Now we will see what happens with the military and the Muslim Brotherhood. One has to wonder if the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the Egyptian Military. I would not automatically think that way except even our own military has muslims in it and there have been enough things happen that show us it is not a good thing. Anyway, I would think the chance of the MB controlling both the government and the military is extremely high.

Prayers for Israel. It’s going to get REALLY ugly. One thing for sure, I would not want to be an enemy of Israel. They are awesome!!!! Israel will beat them on any given day. And an Egypt with the Muslim Brotherhood in control is not good for the USA either. John Bolton said yesterday that we are right to be very, very concerned with the unfolding events in Egypt as it they could very well prove to be a highly destabilizing force in to our regional interests and to Israel in particular.

Obama is like Global Warming, which became Climate Change, which became Whatever Happens We Were Right.

This is the Muslim Brotherhood's official English webstie.

And this map below is from this website: The Investigative Project on Terrorism

There is a map......I tried to break it up so you could see it better. It is kind of hard to read the print on the original version. .........................The terrorist network in america 1991- 2007

GOP Congress Cuts $100 Billion in Government Spending

Tea Party wins: $100 billion in cuts in House GOP spending bill

The Hill

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) on Friday evening introduced a revised 2011 government spending bill that the GOP said will cut at least $100 billion in spending this fiscal year, bowing to demands by Tea Party-backed House freshmen.

The continuing resolution funding the government after March 4 cuts deeply across all areas of domestic spending and singles out many programs for complete elimination.

In the CR $81 billion has been cut from non-security programs, and security-related programs have been reduced by $19 billion, compared to Obama’s 2011 budget request.

The legislation will increase funding for the Department of Defense by 2 percent over last year’s level.

“This evening, on behalf of House Republicans, Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers introduced a Continuing Resolution that will reduce spending by at least $100 billion in the next 7 months – a historic effort to get our fiscal house in order and restore certainty to the economy,” Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said in a statement.

“At a time when unemployment is too high and economic growth is elusive in part because of the uncertainty created by our skyrocketing debt, this legislation will mark the largest spending cut in modern history and will help restore confidence so that people can get back to work. These are not easy cuts, but we are finally doing what every other American has to do in their households and their businesses, and that’s to begin a path of living within our means,” he said.

Continue reading article HERE....thank you.

The committee had raced to produce the bill Friday in order to leave enough time to hold a vote on the bill next week before the House recesses for a Presidents Day district work period next Friday.

Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) said Friday that there will be three days of debate next week, and an open rule will allow for lots of amendments.

Under a three-day waiting period the GOP instituted in January, the bill debate cannot begin until Tuesday at the earliest.

If the bill is not passed before Presidents Day recess, the House and Senate would have only one week left of work to negotiate out a spending bill before March 4.

If a new CR is not passed by March 4, the government will shut down. Congress can pass short-term extensions of the current CR, however.

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

Thank God for the TEA PARTY keeping their feet to the fire.

It should be law that the government cannot spend one more dime than they receive. $100B is a good start.

The Dems of course will scream and we will hear stories in the MSM on how the cruel the Conservatives are.

Herman Cain to Obama at CPAC: "U.S. Will Not Become U.S. of Europe on our Watch"

Cain, a one-time Senate candidate and former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, is the most prominent African-American considering a run for the GOP presidential nomination.

“They call me racist too because I happen to disagree with the president,” Cain said at the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday. “If you disagree about their liberal leader you must be a racist no matter what color you are.”

Cain said his disagreement with Obama was based on policies, not race. “Some black people can think for themselves,” he said.

He told the crowd: “You are not racist.”

Herman Cain to Obama at CPAC: "U.S. Will Not Become U.S. of Europe on our Watch"

Herman Cain’s speech at CPAC .

Cain called on Americans to “stay involved, stay informed, and stay inspired” in working to see to it that there is a new President in the White House after the 2012 Election. Cain said liberals like Obama are seeking the destruction of the United States as we know it, wanting to turn America into the U.S. of Europe. Cain said that is not going to happen “on our watch.”

Hermain Cain at CPAC

In what was the closing speech of Friday’s CPAC day session, Herman Cain fired up and inspired the troops with what could only be described as one of the most powerful, engaging, and entertaining speeches given yet at the A.C.U.’s 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference.

With poetic prose, creative alliteration, a booming voice and a mix of religious fervor and down to earth, homey lingo, Herman Cain appealed to the moral character and common sense of us all. His delivery was far from timid and often amusing.

Cain warned us of what he called “the attack of the ations”…….legislation, regulation and taxation. He used what he called “health deform legislation” as on example of the legislation attack. Then he cited the cost to small businesses for every single employee they hire as an example of the regulation attack. That cost? $10,000 per employee. His final of the 3 “ataions” was taxation. That he said was based on a current tax system that we must throw out. Adding “Isn’t that what you do when you mess up a cake?”

Cain also informed the audience that Liberals have no strategy. They only have tactics, tactics that he described as S-I-N. He explained their tactics are “Shift the subject, Ignore the facts, and Name call.”

There were many gems offered by the skilled orator and now former conservative radio host, but in his conclusion, Cain outlined 3 things we must do to save this nation.

One; Stay informed. Cain said “Stupid people are ruining America.” He added; So you must become teachers and educators of the stupid”.

Two; Stay involved. According to Cain, too many people stayed home in 2008 because we did not have the perfect candidate. Cain suggested that no candidate will ever be perfect and that if you can find one you agree with on 7 out of 10 things, “you’ve hit a homerun”.

The third thing he suggested we must do is stay inspired, because “they want you to believe we can’t take back our government”

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

Excellent speech by Herman Cain. This video of his speech is well worth watching. Thank God we have men like this in our country.

A Must Read....Mubarak Speaks About Our Disgusting Dictator Obama To His Supreme Military Council

A defiant Egyptian President slammed Barack Obama today. Andrea Shea King reported on his speech today to the The Supreme Military Council via a trusted source from Israel:

The Radio Patriot

Iran has put it’s opposition leader under house arrest. Some Israeli forces are mobilizing. You can bet the leaders in the other Middle Eastern Countries are also moving to a higher level of alert. God save and protect them all!

“The Supreme Military Council met with Mubarak and as I have said time and time again it is NOT going to pan out the way Obama wants it. There was false rumors stating Mubarak was going to resign, it’s not true, the truth is Mubarak is very ill, his health has been stressed and the Army is fed up. (They leaked the false report to the media to see who they carried the message to in the mob’s hierarchy. They are going to declare Martial Law, it’s going to get ugly.

The Supreme Military council during a meeting yesterday stated in one voice, “We will not be ordered around by the Obama regime and we will not hand over Egypt to the bastards he supports. If they think Mubarak is a tyrant they have seen nothing.”

The Military has surrounded the Presidential palace to protect President Hosni Mubarak. The military is scheduled to give an order to disburse, then if the order is ignored then the military will declare Martial Law and take back the streets at all cost.

During the meeting with the Military Council Mubarak made the following statement:

“We are brothers, soldiers, we have bled together for Egypt, we have shed blood together. Today, we are faced by an enemy who demands we hand Egypt over to our enemies. The people of Egypt have been silenced by these insurgents and we have been more than patient. Will we all sit here and obey the Obama regime? Will we not once again, with honor stand up to our enemies? Will we not continue to stand for Egypt with honor?

Brothers, would you have me crawl away at the command of Obama? Would any of you crawl away like a dog that has been kicked? Would any of you bow down to the fools he has chosen to take our nation from us?

I leave to you, men of honor, the fate of Egypt, the honor of Egypt and in so doing, I know you will decide that which is right and honorable. We have known each other all our lives, we grew to be men together, we have eaten bread in each others houses and honored each others families. Will we now throw all that away for political expediency?

Ask yourselves this day, all of you here, men of honor, men and protectors of Egypt, what will you answer the Obama? This day, in the name of Allah, the fate of Egypt and her honor rests in your hands. How will you answer Obama and our enemies. Are you his lap dogs or are you truly the sons of Egypt?”

Bibi has ordered the IDF to further strengthen the borders, those trying to escape Egypt will be intercepted and turned over to the Egyptian forces. All Hell is about to break lose. Be ready. This is the radio chatter and word on the streets from the Egyptian Military sources here in Tel Aviv. To say that the Egyptian government is furious with Obama is the understatement of the millennium. It is as it he (Obama) is deliberately violating every Islamic honor tradition in the Middle East to provoke them. The toilet is about to flush.”

Obama “Dispirited” After Mubarak Snubs Him & Decides to Stay in Office


NBC News’ Chuck Todd reports that White House officials say President Barack Obama found Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s speech “extremely dispiriting.”

After making upbeat remarks earlier in the day at a speech in Michigan, in which he said the world was watching “history unfold,”

Obama is now expected only to issue a written statement this evening.

“We’ve got to work this carefully,” a U.S. official told Todd. “We’ve got to get this just right.”

Mubarak told the Egyptian people Thursday that,

“And we will prove that we are not servants to anyone and will not be dictated by anyone, and that no will take the decisions for us.”


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

Powerful words by Mubarak , evincing a strong sense of honor and wounded pride at being insulted by this upstart and arrogant American president, and also consistent with the Saudi's request to Obama to respect that pride. Also, note that solidarity with his military establishment based on patriotism that Obama will never understand. Essentially he told Obama to butt out of Egypt's business and to f*ck off.

“We’ve got to work this carefully,” a U.S. official told Todd. “We’ve got to get this just right.”

Why start now?

Obama to Make Written Statement (on Egypt "shortly")

Obama seriously needs to shut up. I cant believe what we are watching. At least we won’t have to listen to him.
Another harshly worded letter, no doubt. Soros is faxing it in.

Egypt is on fire, but the real crisis appears to be in D.C. We’ve got the flim-flam man at the lead.

Will be use one of his Obamism???? There’s a car stuck in a ditch in Egypt with the Muslim Brotherhood Members in it and I’m the only One trying to pull it out of the ditch that Pres. Mubarak put it in????

Not Stepping Down .....Mubarak: I Am an Arab Warrior, Not a Community Organizer


Mubarak: I Am an Arab Warrior, Not a Community Organizer

The Corner

This is a huge lesson in political culture. It also shows just how bad the media coverage has been. Mubarak is not resigning. He’s managing the “reform” process. He is appointing a committee to study constitutional changes. He will decide when there are elections. He is going to “consider” changing the emergency law. He basically said: I am an Arab warrior, not a community organizer. That speech should be required reading for anyone who wants to understand the Middle East.

This is not over yet. There has been no revolution so far, but the protesters are going to freak out. If Obama has been interpreted as applauding real and major change, either he didn’t know what Mubarak was going to say or he is going to look like a total fool.

When Mubarak said he won’t accept outside advice, that was a direct slap at Obama. Can you imagine the expression on Obama’s face as he watched the speech after being told by his intelligence that Mubarak resigned? After he made a speech about how the youth had forced change? If I had to summarize it, tabloid-style, I’d say: “Mubarak to Obama: Drop Dead!“

The regime is not giving in — Mubarak will leave office, perhaps in September, but the regime will fight on. The speech was the equivalent of Charles Bronson or Clint Eastwood saying: Come and get me!

Of course, we should not forget that this is a dictator refusing to step down. Mubarak and the army knew that this would inflame the crowd. The army would not have agreed to this unless it was willing to deal with the consequences.

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

GREAT writei up from the ever-insightful Barry Rubin at The Corner.

I heard from a man on Fox saying the speech was more of an act of war speech. Mubarak definitely told Obama what he thinks of him and I can’t say I blame him. Obama is constantly getting his skinny ass handed over to him on a platter by other countries.

I am not a fan of Mubarak and I sure as heck am not a fan of dictator obama. But it sure feels good to have someone telling obama to shove it. I think most people including myself are not sure what the heck is going on with Mubarak and Egypt and the protestors. It is very confusing. All the more reason for obama to stop favoring his Muslim Brotherhood to take over.

All I do know 100% is the effect of what they do in Egypt will have on Israel and the rest of the world and THAT is what concerns me more then anything.

How many countries are there now in which has Obama strained our relations? Let's see: England, France, Spain, Israel, I think Germany,(except for some German people, but I think the powers in office have had their fill of Obama), Russia is not enamored, nor frightened, of him, nor is China. And now Egypt has told Obama to drop dead and basically told him to go away and play back on the school playground while the grownups of the world make their own decisions.

Egyptian Journalist: "The U.S. Will Be Transformed into an Islamic Republic"

It says at YouTube this video is from December of 2010.

Wild Thing's comment......

We have seen so many countries go from Christian nations to Islam infested. We tried so hard to get the word out about obama and his associations and agenda and it made a difference I am sure of it. And it continues to as we see more and more people waking up.

I believe we have to keep at our politicans to speak out and take a stand and stop being PC about Islam and the terrorists.

Another reason we need to vote out of this Obama and all of the liberals and apologists who support him in Congress, and in positions of power across America.

I do NOT want to be England or France or any of the other countries that today are regretting giving in inch by inch to Islam and are FINALLY waking up to what they allowed.

Our troops fight terrorists in other lands and here at home to just hand it to the enemy is beyond the pale in total insanity.

The terrorist at Fort Hood might never have been able to do his killings if PC had not been ruling over the complaints that were brought up long before about that terrorist.

This Islamic movement in our country is very real and more entrenched in our society than most people know, to make things worse we have a muslim for a president. There was a reason he bowed to muslim leaders and that was his first overseas trip. An excellent read on this is a book called Stealth Jihad by Robert Spencer. Islamic doctrine teaches a world controlled by “sharia law” and that is their goal.

The Muslim Brotherhood have used the Democrats “multicultural” platform to invade us from within and are gaining to large a foothold in our country. Islam is the real threat to our way of life!

Horrible Ron Paul Supporter At The ( NOT so Conservative ) CPAC Yells To Vice President Cheney 'You're A War Criminal' ~ Screw RINO Infested CPAC!!!!!

The idiot in the audience screamed “War Criminal!”

Dick Cheney strolled on stage to cheers and the inspirational tune of Tina Turner’s “Simply the Best” and just as he began to present the “Defender Of The Constitution” award to Donald Rumsfeld the chants of “USA! USA!” died down, a voice screaming “War criminal!” could be heard. And then, as Cheney continued to talk up his former colleague, a shouting match began between supporters of Ron Paul and the rest of the convention hall.

The Paul supporters eventually walked out in the middle of Rumsfeld’s speech as way of protest.

Wild Thing's comment......

CPAC has created this.

Sarah declined for the second time not to go to CPAC and I am glad. Sarah was right about her last two years of “scheduling conflicts” is what she said as an excuse to say no to them. It is really infested now with not so conservative people and agenda's. She is proving to be pretty savvy about a lot of things like this.

I have been hearing from several friends at CPAC that they are completely disgusted with it this year. Some great speakers and guests like Cheney and Herman Cain, but it the packs of roving paultards getting in people’s faces are causing folks just to leave.

Ron Paul’s vision of America and the world, in particular his isolationism, anti-semitism and anti- Israel positions are not shared by most Americans and certainly not shared by most Conservatives.

Time to end this trashing and remember who the real enemy is.

Trump said he is considering a run because he just does not see other another candidate he thinks would be “fantastic.” At that point, the Ron Paul supporters began shouting “Ron Paul” at him, and Trump lowered the boom on them.

At the end of his speech, he summarized his stand on a number of issues:


* Against Gun Control

* Will “fight to end ObamaCare” and replace it with “something that makes sense and not bankrupt the country.”

* Will not raise taxes

* anti-illegals.

“We’ll be taking in hundreds of billions of dollars from other countries that are screwing us.”

“We’ll create vast numbers of jobs.”

“Our country will be great again.”

Donald Trump at CPAC informs Ron Paul supporters who had booed him during his speech:

“By the way, Ron Paul can not get elected, I’m sorry to tell you…I like Ron Paul, I think he’s a good guy. But honestly, he has just zero chance of getting elected.”

The Ron Paulians did not like that and booed loudly.


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

I remember last year's CPAC how they voted at the end of it who they wanted for President and Ron Paul had more votes then anyone. I was so shocked to see this happening. CPAC has changed a lot from what it used to be. So if nothing else I am glad Trump repsonded to the Ron Paul people at CPAC that no way could Ron Paul win. I hope that helps to wake them up and see most of us Conservatives do NOT want Ron Paul. sheesh.

Donald Trump is a little like Sarah Palin. They are both outspoken and have guts to say what a lot of us are thinking. Sarah is outspoken because she is too principled to be politically correct ( thank God for Sarah!!!!) and Trump is rich and can say what he wants. Trump cannot win IMO not with the conservative vote, we know he could turn on a dime and be another RINO, plus his ego is as big as obama's without the verbal threats to we the people. Trump has voiced his opinion very much like a RINO in the past on the very same issues posted above that he gave the total opposite responses to, so you see that is what I mean by he might change his mind again on abortion, guns etc. No recycled RINOS please.

" Make people wear gold stars who refuse Obamacare" ~ Len Nichols Health Economist Teaches at Virginia's George Mason University

Obama Care Advocate, advocates making people wear gold stars who refuse Obamacare


Alternatives To Mandating Insurance? Maybe

"The biggest fear is that without mandatory health insurance, there will be no incentive for people to buy health insurance until after they're sick, and then the system won't work," says Jamie Court, president of Consumer Watchdog, a California-based advocacy group that supports the law but opposes mandatory health insurance. "I would take issue with that."

Paul Starr, a health care expert and professor at Princeton University.

Starr has suggested giving people who don't want coverage a chance to opt out. But if they choose to remain uninsured, he says, "you won't be eligible to opt back in and get any of the benefit of the subsidies or use new health insurance exchanges or buy without pre-existing conditions exclusions."

In effect, he says, "you are basically opting into the world we have now" — for five years.

Yet some analysts worry that still might not get enough healthy people to sign up compared with an actual mandate.

Len Nichols, a health economist who teaches at Virginia's George Mason University, says without a requirement for coverage, Congress might have to find another way to make the consequences of not having insurance even more dramatic.

For example, he says, perhaps if people don't buy insurance when it is first available, "if you ever try to buy insurance again, you'll have to pay three times the market price, and we will put a gold sticker on your forehead and say to all hospitals, 'You do not have to treat this person; this person has forfeited their right to uncompensated care.' "

Nichols is only half serious about that gold star.

He is quick to point out that doctors and hospitals are bound by professional standards not to turn away patients in need of emergency care. So he says Congress may want to consider another option: Make the states do the hard work. Lawmakers could withhold federal funding in the health law unless states require people to have health insurance.

"It would have the virtue of avoiding the constitutional debate," he says.

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

And what do the waivers wear???

Holocaust redux. Obviously this person is not a history buff. The irony is amazing.

Good grief, free health care sure is expensive. Hey idiot, it is not about care. It’s about contro

Saudis Told Obama To Back and Not to 'Humiliate' Mubarak

Exclusive: Saudis told Obama to back Mubarak


Saudi Arabia has threatened to prop up President Mubarak if the White House tries to force a swift change of regime in Egypt.

In a testy personal telephone call on January 29, King Abdullah told President Obama not to humiliate Mr Mubarak and warned that he would step in to bankroll Egypt if the US withdrew its aid programme, worth $1.5 billion annually.

America’s closest ally in the Gulf made clear that the Egyptian President must be allowed to stay on to oversee the transition towards peaceful democracy and then leave with dignity.

“Mubarak and King Abdullah are not just allies, they are close friends, and the King is not about to see his friend cast aside and humiliated,” a senior source in the Saudi capital told The Times.

Report: Saudis Told Obama Not to 'Humiliate' Mubarak

FOX News

"Mubarak and King Abdullah are not just allies, they are close friends, and the King is not about to see his friend cast aside and humiliated," a senior source in the Saudi capital told The Times.
Two sources confirmed details of the King's call, made four days after the people of Egypt took to the streets.

The revelation of Saudi concerns sheds new light on America's apparent diplomatic paralysis and lays bare the biggest rift between the nations since the oil price shock of 1973.

"With Egypt in chaos, the kingdom is Washington's only major ally left in the Arab world and the Saudis want the Americans to remember that," said a source in Riyadh.

The White House declined to comment on the reports Wednesday, saying that the administration did not divulge what other leaders said to Obama.

Obama's WH tells reporters that Obama has been consistent on Egypt:

On Tuesday the Obama Administration asked Hosni Mubarak to step aside.
On Wednesday they said that transitioning power “now means yesterday.”
On Saturday morning the Obama Administration said Mubarak must stay.
On Saturday evening the Obama Administration said Mubarak should step aside.
On Sunday Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Mubarak must stay in power.
On Tuesday the Obama Administration said that political reform will be a gradual process.


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

Obama will be bowing down again for some time to the Saudis.

LOL love how Drudge puts the phtoto of Obama bowing with his headline. Good for Drudge.

Another Obama fail. Saudi slapdown to The Kenyan and his Iranian collaborators.

I think the Saudis view the Muslim Brotherhood as a mortal threat to the Kingdom. They realize that the Muslim Brotherhood and its spawn would take over that country and use it as a base to topple not only Israel, but the House of Saud as well.

Egypt's Foreign Minister Tells Obama Not to Impose His Will

Egypt's Foreign Minister Tells U.S. Not to Impose Its Will

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said Wednesday that it would be better for the United States to encourage Egypt in its changes rather than impose its will.

Right at the beginning, he says Biden's call to VP Suleiman was not helpful 'at all.'

For Americans to come and say 'change is now,' but already we are changing! or, 'you start now,' we started last week. So better understand the Egyptian sensitivities and better encourage the Egyptians to move forward and to do what is required," he told Margaret Warner in Cairo.

When asked if Mubarak would consider stepping down, Gheit said the president believes chaos would follow:

"He believes that if he steps down or relinquishes his authority or nominates somebody else then first that is unconstitutional but second, he thinks that it would entail chaos and it would entail violence and it would entail also opportunities for those who would wish to act in a manner to threaten the state, the stability of the country and society."
And of the beatings in and around Tahrir Square, Gheit said: "I do not think the government was responsible for that, because, as I was telling you, my office overlooks the Nile. I saw them coming, in hundreds and then in thousands and I felt they should be stopped. But we didn't have enough forces to stop them from coming into the square. And the president yesterday established a commission to investigate particularly that incident."

As for the next steps in Egypt, according to Gheit: "We have to move step by step according to a road map where we would reach some time in June, have stabilized, have changed, have transformed, changed the Constitution, changed the parliament or restructured parliament and then we proceed for presidential elections and we allow the new president, who would be appointed sometime in October we allow him to disband parliament, to change parliament, to do whatever with the country."


U.S. ( Obama) says Egypt failing to meet protest concerns


Egypt must do more to meet protesters' demands for political change, the United States ( OBAMA ) said on Wednesday in a sharp escalation of rhetoric with one of its most important allies in the Middle East.

Washington is waiting for "real, concrete" moves to speed the transition, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said after Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit suggested the United States was eager to impose its will on Cairo.

"What you see happening on the streets of Cairo is not all that surprising when you see the lack of steps that their government has taken to meet their concerns," Gibbs said.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak held meetings at the White House as the United States and another key ally weighed the impact of Egypt's crisis on stability in the Middle East.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday set out steps Egypt must take in the face of unrelenting protests against President Hosni Mubarak, bluntly telling his government to stop harassing protesters and immediately repeal an emergency law allowing detention without charge.

The demands appeared aimed at raising pressure on Mubarak's handpicked vice president, Omar Suleiman, the former intelligence chief who is negotiating with opposition figures demanding Mubarak's immediate ouster.


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

The world is finding out whose side obama is on and what we have seen with what is happening in Egypt it is the Muslimi Brotherhood. I have not seen one article of him telling them what to do. He has only stated that there are only some fractions of it that are radical. Sheesh! How much more obvious does he have to be.

And Biden and Gibbs of course are total jerks.

Heartless Obama Wants To Make Cuts To Home Heating Aid Program For The Poor ~ Obama wants the “poor people” to freeze to death!!!!!

Obama to propose cuts in heating aid


Barack Obama wants to cut $2.5 billion from a $5 billion home heating aid program for the poor, a person familiar with his 2012 budget proposal said Wednesday, halving the popular fund as he looks for places to rein in federal spending.

The proposal would cut the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program to its 2008 level of about $2.5 billion.

The person discussed the details on condition of anonymity because Obama’s spending outline has not been formally released.

The White House plans to send the proposal to Congress on Monday.

The plan is for the budget year beginning Oct. 1.

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., urged Obama not to cut the funding. He said more than 3 million families would lose assistance.

"I've always supported serious efforts to restore fiscal sanity, but in the middle of a brutal, even historic, New England winter, home heating assistance is more critical than ever to the health and welfare of millions of Americans, especially senior citizens," Kerry said.

Obama has said tough choices must be made about how to spend scarce federal dollars to rein in spending and reduce the budget deficit and the nation's mounting debt.

The association of state officials who administer the heating program says the number of households needing help paying energy bills is expected to hit a record high this year for the third straight year.

The National Energy Assistance Directors' Association opposes any program cuts. It says the number is expected to climb to 8.9 million households, up from 8.3 million last year and 7.7 million the year before. The association blames the increases on the weak economy and continued high energy prices.

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

What a heartless scumbag. How horrible and I hope he does not get his way on this. I never heard of this before, this bill, there are good things and bad things about it. Of course the lazy will abuse it, the corrupt will do like they have done with ACORN etc. but I bet there are others that in an honest way need this aid like maybe old people or the sick. Not sure how it all works. Our taxes go for thousands of things I would rather them not. I for one, do not mind my tax money going towards helping make sure that the vulnerable amongst us do not freeze in their homes.

The bottom line is that obama has destroyed our economy and many small businesses that hire people. Then add in he went after big business as well ( oil etc.). Then his wife wants to decide for all of us what to eat. Please God do not let her tell us what to wear, I totally can't stand the way she dresses. Now Obama wants this heating thing about the aid to be cut back which the media will blame Bush probably. amazing

But Obama does love taxing all of us and his obamacare, high oil prices, and his stimulus packages etc. What gets me is those stimulus bills that sent us into debt as much as anything else are paying for tattoos to be taken off prisoners and hundreds upon hundreds of other totally stupid things of waste in spending.

There are tons of places to cut back then to cause poor people to freeze in the winter.

In the meantime, Obama is doing all that is humanly possible to make sure we have heating fuel shortages across the fruited plain, coupled with inflation.

He has personally destroyed the oil industry in our country and put so many out of work in all the various jobs connected to that and now he wants to freeze people to death ONLY to appear like he is doing great things in cutting back. Watch too how MSM will ignore this and keep saying how awful Republicans are instead.

Anyone notice that there are NO stories being reported about $3.50 per gallon gasoline or people who are freezing in their homes because Heating Oil is so expensive. Oh yeah, the President is a Democrat, I forgot.

Remember the stories when Obama first got in the WH? They said you could grow Orchids in the Oval Office - he turned the heat up so much.

Obama's State Dept Now Tweeting in Arabic

The Blaze

From the U.S. Department of State‘s Arabic Media Hub comes news that America’s top diplomatic agency will be sharing America’s foreign policy goals with the Arab world in their native language. The move comes as DOS hopes to widen its audience amid growing unrest in the Middle East and growing favor for social media outlets such as Twitter.

Tweeting under the account “USAbilAraby,“ which means ”USA in Arabic,” the State Department’s first entry announced that Washington recognizes the “historic role” of social media in the Arab world. “We want to be in your conversation,” it said.

Subsequent posts have reiterated the Obama administration’s stance that only Egyptians can decide their future and announced a phone conversation between Vice President Joe Biden and his Egyptian counterpart, Omar Suleiman.


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

Obama's administrations way to communicate with the Arab world while simultaenously alienating your own citizens.

Eric Cantor: House To Vote Next Week To Block Funding of Obamacare (Socialized Medicine)


The House of Representatives will vote on whether to block funding for President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare overhaul when it takes up a budget plan next week, House Republican Leader Eric Cantor said on Tuesday.

“I expect to see one way or other the product coming out of the House to speak to that and to preclude any funding to be used for that,” Cantor said at a news conference, referring to an effort to block implementation of the health-care law.

House Republicans aim to pass a spending measure next week that would immediately cut at least $32 billion from the government’s $3.7 trillion budget in an effort to trim record budget deficits.

Republican lawmakers are expected to unveil details of the spending-cut package on Thursday ahead of a wide-ranging debate on the House floor next week.

Woo hoo!!

All spending originates in the House. They have all constitutional authority over spending. So he cant veto it. The pure GENIUS of our Founding Fathers at work.

Americans, wake up, it is you, Obama is destroying, you, your children, your grandchildren and your children to yet come!!! Time is running out!!!

Mandatory Arabic Classes Coming To Mansfield Dallas / Fort Worth

Some school children in Texas' Mansfield Independent School District will soon be required to learn Arabic, thanks to a federal government grant.

According to a Dallas CBS News affiliate, Mansfield ISD received the Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant last summer. It is one of only five districts in the country to be awarded the grant.

Parents were caught by surprise and learned of the grant Monday night in a meeting with district Superintendent Bob Morrison.

CBS News reported:

"As part of the five-year $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School. The program would also be optional for students at T. A. Howard Middle School and Summit High School."

According to a PDF file provided by the school district, Cross Timbers was selected because it has "the highest percentage of native Arabic speakers in the district." The district sees these students as a resource to help develop the program.

Students will not only learn the language - the curriculum will include Arabic culture, government, art, traditions and history.

Some parents were concerned their children would be taught Islam as part of the program.

Although Superintendent Morrison reassured parents their children would not be taught Islam, the concern is valid since many Arabic nations - like Saudi Arabia - are governed by Sharia law, which is based on Islam and teachings from the Koran.

Arabic has been identified by the federal Department of Education as a "language of the future", and the district believes the grant provides an excellent opportunity to prepare students for the economy of the future.

According to the district, the program provides several benefits:

This project is federally funded for $ 1.3 million dollars over a 5 year period.

This project adds a critical foreign language option for students in MISD.

Successful Arabic foreign language studies (Arabic I, II, III) increases college and scholarship opportunities.

This allows students to be prepared to compete globally for jobs that are not in existence yet.

This project supports the diversity within MISD.

This project allows students and teachers to learn about the Arab impact on our country.

This grant allows for us to develop a partnership with the University of Texas at Austin.

Some, like Kheirieh Hannun, believes the program will help tear down some of the stereotypes people have of the Arabic culture, but the move may cause concern for those who see a creeping Islamization of America.

Mansfield Arabic Program On Hold

CBS Dallas/Fort Worth

A Mansfield ISD program to teach Arabic language and culture in schools is on hold for now, and may not happen at all.

The school district wanted students at selected schools to take Arabic language and culture classes as part of a federally funded grant.

The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education.

As part of the five-year $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would have been taught at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and other schools feeding into Summit High School.

Parents at Cross Timbers say they were caught off-guard by the program, and were surprised the district only told them about it in a meeting Monday night between parents and Mansfield ISD Superintendent Bob Morrison.

The Department of Education has identified Arabic as a ‘language of the future.’ But parent Joseph Balson was frustrated by the past.

“Why are we just now finding out about it?” asked Balson. “It’s them (Mansfield ISD) applying for the grant, getting it approved and them now saying they’ll go back and change it only when they were caught trying to implement this plan without parents knowing about it.”

Trisha Savage thinks it will offer a well-rounded education. “I think its a great opportunity that will open doors. We need to think globally and act locally.”

Kheirieh Hannun was born in the Middle East but raised in the U.S. She believes giving students the option to learn Arabic will give her son and others like him the option to learn more about their culture. “It was surprising, but I think it’s okay, and it will help come down on the stereotype.” Hannun says she is hopeful the class could broaden the minds of not only students, but also parents.

The FLAP grant was awarded to only five school districts across the country, including Mansfield. The district says the plan is on hold so it can hear from more parents. After that evaluation is over, the district says it is possible they might return the grant.

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

"Parents were caught by surprise and learned of the grant Monday night in a meeting with district Superintendent "

The parents were not told about it until the school board decided to do it. They knew the parents wouldn't have allow them to do it, so they jumped first so that they couldn't be stopped. Pathetic.

Any school board that does this should be dropped from a plane where the caves are for the Taliban and left there for good.

I realize there is a real need for Arabic translators in the State Department, Military, Intelligence agencies BUT to force it on children......CHILDREN.......that is a whole different story. This is not about the language. This is indoctrination. Just like it said............ Mansfield ISD says in addition to language, the grant provides culture, government, art, traditions and history as part of the curriculum. "

Just show othe video of Nick Berg’s beheading.....or 9-11. That’s ALL they need to know.

"Arabic has been identified by the federal Department of Education as a "language of the future"

“Language of the future”? According to whom, the Muslim Brotherhood?

Remember when CAIR developed a curriculum for CA schools and parents from one school district complained, took it to court, and lost? The CA court found it was perfectly Constitutional to have kids read the Koran, dress like arabs, adopt Muslims names and recite Muslim prayers in school.

Then I think the school district decided to drop it anyway because of the problems it was causing.

Parents should tell the board they will pull their kids out.

BUT, they get expelled if they happen to say "Merry Christmas, or wear a shirt with the American Flag on it, or ride a bike to school with the American Flag attached to it. SHEESH this shit makes me furious!

Rumsfeld Tells Rush: Radical Islamists Intend to ‘Create a Caliphate’

We are up against a vicious enemy, the radical Islamists are there, they intend to try to create a Caliphate in this world and fundamentally alter the nature of nation states, and we’re reluctant to engage in the competition of ideas and point out what they really are and how vicious they are. This current administration is even afraid to say the word Islamist. And we need to fight. We need to be willing to say what it is and be willing to tackle it.”

Senate Democrats Vow Abortion Bills Block Note How They LIE About What Federal Funding Means!

The Tuesday press conference was a warning shot aimed at a pair of House bills.

Senate Dems vow abortion bills block

The Senate’s fiercest abortion rights supporters vowed to block two measures Republicans are pushing in the House from passage in the upper chamber.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) told reporters “I do think we’ll have 41” votes necessary to block legislation backed by some members of House GOP leadership that would further restrict federal funds for abortions. Boxer was referring to a procedural maneuver that would require 60 votes to get a bill to the floor.

The Democrats’ Tuesday news conference was a warning shot aimed at bills sponsored by GOP Reps. Chris Smith of New Jersey and Mike Pence of Indiana that will both be heard by committees this month. Smith’s bill would eliminate any federal funds for abortion, while Pence’s legislation would prohibit federal funds for any organization that provides abortions.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told POLITICO that he would “take a look at what the House sends over and see what’s appropriate,” but his spokesman said the GOP senator opposes federal funding for abortion — a position that puts him in line with many House Republicans who support the anti-abortion measures.

But Senate Democrats, including Boxer, fear that if the House passes either bill, Republicans would fold them into a larger must-pass bill — effectively forcing their chamber’s hand.

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

The democrats should be ashamed of themselves. They won't be but they should, how disgusting they are!!!!!

The fact they the dems put paying for abortions in obamacare is beyond evil !!!!

Special Ops Marines and Connecticut National Guard Detachment To Be Deployed To Egypt

Senior US Marine Says "Multiple Platoons" Are Headed To Egypt

A senior member of the US Marine corps is telling people "multiple platoons" are deploying to Egypt, a source tells us.

There is a system within the US Marines that alerts the immediate families of high-ranking marines when their marine will soon be deployed to an emergency situation where they will not be able to talk to their spouses or families.

That alert just went out, says our source.

This senior Marine told our source that the Pentagon will deploy "multiple platoons" to Egypt over the next few days and that the official reason will be ‘to assist in the evacuation of US citizens."

Our source was told that "the chances they were going over there went from 70% yesterday to 100% today."

We're keeping these people anonymous because both would get in trouble for sharing this information with the press.

On Friday, the Pentagon announced it would move "U.S. warships and other military assets to make sure it is prepared in case evacuation of U.S. citizens from Egypt becomes necessary," according the the LA Times.

And it appears quite evident that it’s not just special ops Marines on the move.

According to a report in The Day newspaper in Connecticut:

“Connecticut National Guard Detachment 2, Company I, 185th Aviation Regiment of Groton has mobilized and will deploy to the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt, to support the Multinational Force and Observers.

The unit left Connecticut Jan. 15 for Fort Benning, Ga., for further training and validation. The unit operates C-23C Sherpa aircraft and has deployed three times in the last seven years in support of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The unit will provide an on-demand aviation asset to the Multinational Force and Observers commander to support its mission of supervising the security provisions of the Egypt/ Israel Peace Treaty.

Chief Warrant Officer Four James Smith of Ivoryton, CT., commands the aviation unit.”

The key statement there being the “supervising the security provisions of the Egypt/Israel Peace Treaty”. It’s highly doubtful that mission would include any military activity in Cairo. It would seem far more likely these troops and their aircraft would be utilized elsewhere.

EGYPT: Pentagon moving warships, preparing for possible evacuations

Pentagon officials emphasized that military intervention in Egypt was not being contemplated and that the warships were being moved only for contingency purposes in case evacuations became necessary.

In addition to the Marines, the Kearsarge normally carries around four dozen helicopters and harrier jets that would permit evacuations and other humanitarian operations, the officials said. More than 1,000 Marines from the Kearsarge were sent to Afghanistan last month on a temporary deployment, leaving roughly one-third still aboard, officials said.”

As noted by the L.A. Times, the Kearsarge is an “amphibious assault ship” that’s normally equipped and manned for offensive military action.

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

God bless our Marines and the National Guard that will be going to Egypt. I had not heard if they got the Americans out of there, maybe they are being sent too to protect Americans. The Embassy that will need protecting and eventually evacuating. Or maybe Obama wants to give Mubarak a secure way out of the country at a time when he can’t necessarily trust his own people to not kill him while trying to leave.

I sure hope obama is not sending these brave warriors there to protect his Muslim brotherhood, gosh I hate thinking that way . I would not feel comfortable being an American stuck in the Middle East right now with Obama as president.

FCC: Presidential Emergency Alerts To Be Tested ~ Good Grief We Are SICK Of Hearing From You!

FCC: Presidential emergency alerts to be tested

Federal News Radio

Everybody has heard the national Emergency Alert System (EAS). Those familiar “duck calls” that reassure listeners “THIS is a test…this is ONLY a test…”

The FCC is planning an upgrade to the tests by including presidential announcements in the system.

Lisa Fowlkes, deputy chief of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau of the FCC, explained to the Federal Drive the Presidential Alert isn’t new.

“The primary goal is to provide the President with a mechanism to communicate with the American public during times of national emergency,” said Fowlkes. The change, she said, is that prior to last week’s order there was no rule in place to call for or allow a test from top to bottom.

Fowlkes said, “There’s never been a test from top to bottom where it’s issued by FEMA and it goes straight down to all the different levels of EAS to the American public. So this is a way for us to glean, okay, if there were an actual emergency and the federal government needed to activate the Presidential EAS, making sure that it actually works the way it’s designed to.”

Now that there’s a rule in place, the next challenges are going to be working with all the stakeholders on timing of the test and to reach out to the public so they understand it’s a test and not a real emergency, Fowlkes said.

“We want to make sure that it works the way it’s designed to,” Fowlkes said. “If there are things that work well, great. If there are things that don’t work well, we can work with EAS participants and with state and local governments as well as our federal partners to correct or or improve what doesn’t work.”

What is the point of this other than to spend more money and to make sure he puts himself in the minds of all the people?

Obama setting himself up to be Dear Leader. As for “Abuse of power”, Obama knows no bounds!

We are getting sick and tired of hearing and seeing you or anything to do with you. ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!

Just like the Saddam era in Iraq, we will be bombarded with his face & voice on every channel (oh wait, that already has happened)!!!! Every freakin day obama's voice is everywhere; on the hour every hour the newscasters are playing snippets of him.

There isn't a cable channel that I can watch that his slimy, crook face doesn't show up on! Hearing his voice during an emergency will NOT calm me down, not at all.

"Jack Wagon" RINO John McCain Says He Isn’t Going to Support ANY GOP Candidates in 2012

Sen. John McCain will not back Sarah Palin for president

Arizona U.S. Senator John McCain says he will not be backing any of the potential Republican presidential candidates as they look to defeat President Barack Obama in the 2012 election.

“I think I’m staying out of this for the first time in many years,” Mr. McCain told Politico on Thursday.

The comment comes as Mr. McCain returned from a one on one meeting with President Obama at the White House. The Arizona Republican said he viewed the meeting as a sign of increasing bipartisanship on Capitol Hill, adding that his meeting with the president was “cordial” and that Mr. Obama has become more of a “centrist.”

The announcement is likely a blow for former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. Ms. Palin, who ran with Mr. McCain during the 2008 presidential campaign, likely stood to benefit the most from a potential McCain endorsement.

The announcement that the Arizona U.S. Senator will not back a 2012 Republican presidential candidate comes as a number of potential Republican presidential candidates ramp up their schedules. It is expected a that a number of potential candidates will officially announce their candidacy in the upcoming weeks.

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

First the title of the article is stupid, because he goes on to say more then not backing Palin if she runs, he states he will not be backing ANY Republican that runs in 2012. Of course he won't he has been in love with Obama all the way back to when he ran for president. I never saw anyone try so hard NOT to get elected as we saw coming from traitor John McCain.

He is ia registered Republican, his party elected him again which does not speak well for AZ. Hello AZ. get a brain!

John McCain is a backstabbing, reptilian, treasonous, McRINO ingrate. Even during McCain’s campaign for the presidency he never stopped backing obama! So he will be voting for obama again.

Buffalo, New York " Moderate" Muslim Who Beheaded His Wife Guilty of 2nd Degree Murder

Hassan Trial: Hassan Guilty of 2nd Degree Murder


The jury in the Muzzammil Hassan trial has reached a verdict.

Muzzammil Hassan is guilty of 2nd degree murder in the death of his wife, Aasiya Hassan.

The jury deliberated for a little over an hour before reaching their verdict.

The judge has scheduled Hassan’s sentencing for March 9, 2011, where he faces a sentence of up to 25-years-to life behind bars.

Hassan was led away in handcuffs.

Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita, Jr. called Hassan a “vicious murderer” during a press conference after the verdict.

The jury declined to speak to the media about the trial or their decision.

Earlier, Hassan delivered his closing arguments, followed by the prosecution.

“Ladies and gentlemen this is not a divorce case, this is a murder case,” said Colleen Curtin Gable, prosecutor.

Jurors were told that Aasiya Hassan may have been conscious when the defendant started to behead her on February 12, 2009.

Curtin Gable started off strong telling the jury that Hassan wants them to believe that what he did was in self defense, "not a chance, not even close."

"There is absolutely no doubt that the defendant killed his wife intentionally," said the prosecutor. "He was carefully and deliberately planning to kill her."

The prosecutor told jurors Hassan was efficient and deliberate in killing his wife in just "thirty-seven seconds." While describing the murder, Curtin Gable described how Aasiya was stabbed in the head and from the mouth to her ear. "How is that self defense, stabbing an unarmed woman from behind," she asked jurors.

"He was in control," she told jurors. "Cool, calm, collected and calculating every step of the way."

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

His life work: He “who ran a cable studio designed to promote understanding of Muslim culture..”

He lived his work; the way he killed his wife has furthered our understanding.

I posted about this guy before how he was a TV executive and his goal was to show how moderate muslims are and then he beheaded his wife because she wanted a divorce. It took almost two years for a guilty verdict to be delivered. What I do't get is why is the 2nd degree charge, he planned the whole thing and he knew what he was going to do. He should have been charged with first degree murder!

Robert Gibbs Says Obama Not Going To Obey The Ruling By Federal Judge In Florida On Obamacare (Socialized Medicine)


Gibbs is asked if the Administation will "adhere to the law as declared by the court." Gibbs starts talking about "many courts have heard many cases on this." But as Mark Levin noted previously, it doesn't matter if other courts rule in favor of Obamacare. Last week, a Federal Judge in Florida ruled it unconstitutional and the only option for the administration is to appeal (and obey the ruling)...Here's Gibbs saying full speed ahead on Obamacare.

CNSNews reporter Fred Lucas talked to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs about Obamacare and asked if the administration would act on a recent Florida judges ruling.


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

The law means what Hussein Obama wants it to mean.

Obama = We know what’s best for you, so we’re cramming this down your throats whether you like it or not.

If he ignores our Constitution and the Judge then surely he’s a dictator and should be treated as such.

Sarah Palin's Visit To Reagan Country

Photo credit: (c) Jensen Sutta

Ronald Reagan’s Ranch, the Western White House is a place where young people come to be inspired by the life, the ideas, the character of Ronald Reagan.

Sarah Palin went horseback riding at the Reagan Ranch this weekend.

Sarah gave a powerful speech at our banquet last night, before an enthusiastic overflow audience. She eloquently and gracefully paid tribute to one of the most significant speeches in American history, Ronald Reagan’s “Time for Choosing” address—while at the same time outlining a vision for America that builds upon President Reagan’s.

Our day with Governor Palin actually started much earlier than her arrival at the Reagan Ranch Center. We first greeted Governor Palin when she arrived at the Reagan Ranch itself, family in tow. Joined by Bristol, Willow, Trig, and grandson Tripp, the Governor visited Ronald Reagan’s favorite retreat for the sole purpose of walking in his footsteps, to better understand what motivated and inspired this great man. We had to ask her to let us chronicle the event in photos and video, to which she reluctantly agreed.

Governor Palin and her family spent hours at the Ranch on Friday. She met with Young America’s Foundation president Ron Robinson and Vice President Kate Obenshain. She heard personal accounts of the President’s life at Rancho del Cielo—the Ranch in the heavens—from trusted Reagan friend and confident Dennis LeBlanc and former Secret Service agent John Barletta. After touring the grounds, Governor Palin even mounted a horse—confident in the saddle—and road the very same trails the President loved with Agent Barletta. She had asked if it would be possible to ride, wanting to experience the Ranch as Ronald Reagan did.

You can continue on with this write up at Big Government website. Good article.

Actor and Strong Supporter of Our Troops, Gary Sinise Speaks At Reagan 100th Birthday Celebration

A classy speech from a classy guy. Gary Sinse represents Hollywood at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library's celebration of President Reagan's 100th birthday.


Wild Thing's comment......

Gary is a wonderful man and each time I met him he was very kind and truly cares about our troops.He used to come into my shop in Malibu often and Nick met him while working on a film he was doing stuntwork on. I am glad he was asked to give a speech for the very special day honoring President Reagan and representing a part of Reagan's life.

Gary also did this video below a few years ago. This is a fantastic video and you get to see a lot of what they have at the Reagan Library. Well worth watching.

Obama Catches Hillary’s Foot In Mouth Disease by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Obama Catches Hillary’s Foot In Mouth Disease

by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

The Obama ‘presidency’ has been a disgrace. His campaign rhetoric and evil intentions were a disgrace but appealed to the uneducated and charismatic who unfortunately dominated our political landscape in 2008. Obama apologized for America’s past actions to defend freedom around the world and through his subsequent foreign policy actions, assisted by Hillary Clinton, has severely tarnished the respect America once enjoyed.

Barry Soetoro (alias Barack Hussein Obama) is an incompetent narcissist who desperately wants personal respect from the rest of the world---at the expense of America’s foundation. He is a powerless joke to the rest of the world. Obama is so spineless and/or anti-American that he cannot even call out the threat of Muslim terrorism which explicitly desires destruction of Israel and ‘infidels’ who do not subscribe to their brutal medieval culture (Sharia Law).

The contagion of popular rebellion has spread like fire through the Mid East and Iran fans those flames opportunistically. Obama was mute when the people of Iran rebelled against their current brutal dictatorship. Interestingly however, Obama has been quick to support demonstrators in the streets of Egypt after having complacently supported the Mubarack regime which has been in power for about 30 years. Yes---Mubarack was more desirable from a strategic view than allowing radical Muslims to control that nation (the lesser of two evils). This is why our elected officials support certain dictators until the citizens they rule revolt.

When anarchy exists there is a vacuum to be filled, and those with greatest opportunity in Egypt are the Muslim Brotherhood, which though a minority amongst the populace, enjoys plenty of support from their brethren in nearby nations.

So what should be the reaction of Obama to the revolution in Egypt where the people apparently want Mubarack gone yesterday?

We have spent 1.2 billion dollars per year to support Egypt’s military under Mubarack. Should the U.S. take a public position or even get directly involved in the conflict of another nation especially if we believe it to be of strategic importance? Some say Egypt is one of the most modern nations of the Mid East not controlled by Islamists, a veritable rock in the middle of other nations ruled by Muslim dictators and Sharia Law, and that we should make sure the nation does not fall to radical Muslim extremists. How can we accomplish that goal? What are Russia, China, European powers and Saudi Arabia doing? Are they not reacting from complacency or fear?

America is itself sitting on a powder keg of discontent as it becomes belatedly apparent that our nation is bankrupt and yet this Administration proposes additional massive spending which becomes the nail in our coffin, because this state of affairs paves the way for the Federal government to force We the People to give our assets to fund government debt---but even that will not be enough to balance the Fedzilla budget deficit which is now accompanied by similar debacles at state and local government levels.

Americans remain the only people who enjoy a variety of liberties non-existent elsewhere. But that freedom is directly threatened by our government’s poor financial management and actions by radical Muslims who want to break up the national culture of tolerance Americans have embraced since the founding of our nation.

Historically, nations whose culture becomes so diverse as to lose its identity have gone the way of dinosaurs—and we too are on the brink of extinction should our government not stand up and call out threats by name and take focused action to rid our nation of those threats—be it downsizing the Federal government and working towards paying down debt, or aggressive actions against radical Jihad (like speedy execution of terrorists who mass murder Americans). Anti-American cultures of destruction must be extinguished within our borders and our borders protected. Simultaneously, America must secure itself by developing energy self-sufficiency and a national defense second to none.

Obama’s focus is not on building security and strength for America or dealing with radical Jihad. He appears to be a puppet whose strings are pulled by those international socialists who financially bought him into office.

In conclusion, Egypt is another piece on the chessboard of the Mid East and its problems are opportunistically greeted by the Muslim world. There is not much America can really do but watch and offer to assist brokering a truly democratic transitional government not dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood or other radical interests who will merely turn a would-be democracy into an intolerant and brutal dictatorship worse than that of Mubarack. One would think the rest of the world would want to assist but instead there is silence from other major world players.

I sure look forward to the day when obama is no longer in office and if the media would ever stop telling us about him, or hearing his voice.

Fox News Reporter Greg Palkot and His Cameraman Olaf Wiig Discuss The Beating They Received in Egypt

FOX News

Fox News Reporter Greg Palkot and his cameraman Olaf Wiig talking on camera for the first time about the beating they took at the hands of thugs in Cairo, Egypt earlier this week.

They talked to Fox News Correspondent John Roberts about how they were repeatedly hit in the head and all over their bodies with fists, open hands, sticks, rocks. Their injuries are still very visible and graphic. They are fortunate to still be alive.

Fox News correspondent Greg Palkot and cameraman Olaf Wiig were in Tahrir Square during the worst of the violence last week. When the building from which they were reporting came under siege, they were forced to flee into the streets and right into the middle of pro-government supporters.

The two were both severely beaten -- to the point they had to be hospitalized. The two have now returned to London, and in their first interview since the incident, recounted the danger they experienced.

"The main street was a total war zone, it was smoke, it was rocks being thrown, it was Molotov cocktails, it was flames, it was live fire," said Palkot, who with Wiig is a veteran reporter who's been to war zones throughout the world.

"I got grabbed and I thought at that moment, I thought, 'Ok, I'm really now in trouble,'" and it was immediately four or five people grabbing hold of you," said Wiig.

"People are all over him," Palkot said of his colleague. "Within about 30 seconds, people are all over us -- and that's where our life or death struggle began."

Palkot said he was pummeled with open hands, fists, sticks and rocks. Attackers were "principally going for the head again and again and again. The head was the target but the rest of the body is fair game too."

Wiig said he thought to himself that surely he could "talk some reason into somebody, surely this isn't, they're not going to kill us right here.' And the more they hit you, the more you realized, actually, they probably could right now."

Wiig is now sporting a bald patch at the back of his head where he was shaved so doctors could stitch up two large gashes. With a right eye that is purple and yellow, he described other injuries, including a smaller gash on his forehead.

"I've got two really good-sized lacerations on the back of my head," Wiig said, "and a stab wound in the back of my leg. My back just looks like a piece of modern art, just completely black and blue."

Pointing to a big bruise on his left temple, Palkot said he remembers a hit to the left side of his head that "blanked my vision out to some degree, blanked my hearing from my left ear to some degree, and that's when I thought I was going to go down."

The two agreed that at the start of the attack adrenaline kept them going. But knowing they had a lot to live for pushed them to try to remain conscious.

"I was absolutely not ready to die that day, you know. I've got a beautiful wife and loving family, and I just want to get back," Wiig said.

Palkot and Wiig eventually found their way to an Egyptian armored personnel carrier and were taken to the hospital. But their ordeal didn't end there. They were taken to the headquarters of the secret police, photographed and questioned before finally being released.

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

Glad they are gonig to be ok, they were almost killed.

These two take and get a lot of dangerous assignments...I hope they both recover quickly.

Obama Says Regarding The Muslim Brotherhood:"there are strains of their ideology that are against the U.S."

FOX News

Barack Obama told Bill O’Reilly that he’s not concerned about the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

After all, Obama says only certain strains of the Muslim Brotherhood are against the US.

Any sudden toppling of the Mubarak regime could create major headaches for the United States, particularly if the void permits a group like the radical Muslim Brotherhood, which is negotiating with the current government about leadership changes, to emerge victorious.

Obama suggested he’s less concerned about that.

“The Muslim Brotherhood is one faction in Egypt. They don’t have majority support in Egypt, but they are well organized and there are strains of their ideology that are against the U.S., there’s no doubt about it,” Obama said. “But here’s the thing that we have to understand, there are a whole bunch of secular folks in Egypt, there are a whole bunch of educators and civil society in Egypt that wants to come to the fore as well. So it’s important for us not to say that our own only two options are either the Muslim Brotherhood or a suppressed people.”

To avoid such scenarios, Obama said that the U.S. must make sure “that we get all the groups together in Egypt for an orderly transition and the one that is a meaningful transition.


Mahdi Akef, the previous leader of the Muslim Brotherhood organization, says that jihad is the personal duty of every Muslim man and woman.

The 'Muslim Brotherhood' Organization of Egypt Calls For Waging Jihad!


Wild Thing's comment......

:"there are strains of their ideology that are against the U.S."

Only strains Obama???? More lies and false information from obama and the sick and sad thing is we can know without a doubt there were people sitting at home watching this interview nodding, yes obama is right the Muslim Brotherhood is not all bad.


I did not watch the interview I did not want to let O'Reilly ruin Super Bowl day. Two people I could care less about if they even exist, Obama and Bill O'reilly. Yuk

But I saw this article from Fox in my email and thought just this part of what obama said was once again telling about his outlook toward the Muslim Brotherhood. He really thinks they are not 100% bad. sheesh

He should leave office and go and join their group. He would fit right in with his lies and hate for America.

The Muslim Brotherhood has always been illegal in Egypt.

Join Me As We Celebrate President Ronald Reagan's 100th Birthday


Today would have been President Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday. The Heritage Foundation put together this video to celebrate the life of Reagan: a “man of many talents and accomplishments,“ as well as his ”sense of humor and contagious optimism.”


Additionally, the Young America’s Foundation (YAF) is honoring The Gipper in a new movie called “Still Point in a Turning World,” produced and directed by Stephen K. Bannon. The preview is goosebump-inducing.


Ronald Reagan during his World War II service.

Ronald Wilson Reagan enrolled in a series of home-study Army Extension Courses on 18 March 1935. After completing 14 of the courses, he enlisted in the Army Enlisted Reserve on 29 April 1937, as a Private assigned to Troop B, 322nd Cavalry at Des Moines, Iowa. He was appointed Second Lieutenant in the Officers Reserve Corps of the Cavalry on 25 May 1937. On June 18 of that year Reagan, who had just moved to Los Angeles to begin his film career, accepted his Officer’s Commission and was assigned to the 323rd Cavalry.

Lieutenant Reagan was ordered to active duty on 19 April 1942. Due to eyesight difficulties, he was classified for limited service only, which excluded him from serving overseas. His first assignment was at the San Francisco Port of Embarkation at Fort Mason, California, as liaison officer of the Port and Transportation Office. Upon the request of the Army Air Forces (AAF), he applied for a transfer from the Cavalry to the AAF on 15 May 1942; the transfer was approved on 9 June 1942. He was assigned to AAF Public Relations and subsequently to the 1st Motion Picture Unit in Culver City, California. Reagan was promoted to First Lieutenant on 14 January 1943 and was sent to the Provisional Task Force Show Unit of This Is The Army at Burbank, California. Following this duty, he returned to the 1st Motion Picture Unit, and on 22 July 1943 was promoted to Captain.

In January 1944, Captain Reagan was ordered to temporary duty in New York City to participate in the opening of the sixth War Loan Drive. He was assigned to the 18th AAF Base Unit, Culver City, California on 14 November 1944, where he remained until the end of the war. He was recommended for promotion to Major on 2 February 1945, but this recommendation was disapproved on July 17 of that year. On 8 September 1945, he was ordered to report to Fort MacArthur, California, where he was separated from active duty on 9 December 1945.

While on active duty with the 1st Motion Picture Unit and the 18th Army Air Forces Base Unit, Captain Reagan served as Personnel Officer, Post Adjutant, and Executive Officer. By the end of the war, his units had produced some 400 training films for the Army Air Forces.

Reagan’s Reserve Commission automatically terminated on 1 April 1953.


Election night drama 1984







" We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- Ronald Reagan, 1965

"I don't think you can overstate the importance that the rise of Islamic fundamentalism will have to the rest of the world in the century ahead-especially if, as seems possible, its most fanatical elements get their hands on nuclear and chemical weapons and the means to deliver them against their enemies." --Ronald Reagan

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." President Ronald Reagan

Thank God for Ronald Reagan and his life and love for America and our troops. May his spirit guide America's path.
God blessed the USA with Reagan.

President Reagan was, by far, the best President of our lifetime.

Palin: Obama's 3 a.m. call went to answering machine

CNN political coverage

Sarah Palin, in her first comments on the uprising in Egypt, called the situation President Barack Obama’s 3 a.m. phone call and said, “It seems the call went right to the answering machine.”

Palin, the former GOP vice presidential candidate, spoke with Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody after her speech Friday night at the Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, California.

In the interview, the potential Republican presidential candidate said, “We need to know what it is America stands for so we know who it is that America will stand with. And we do not have all that information (from the administration) yet.”

She told “The Brody File” she was “not real enthused about what it is that’s being done on a national level and from (Washington) in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt.”

Palin criticized the administration’s public response, saying “nobody yet has explained to the American public yet what they know, and surely they know more than the rest of us . . . who will be taking the place of (Egyptian President Hosni) Mubarak.”

“In these areas that are so volatile right now because obviously it’s not just Egypt but the other countries too where we are seeing uprisings, we know that now more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the White House,” she said.

According to a transcript from CBN released Saturday evening, Palin said there were still unanswered questions on the protests that led to the upheaval.

“Remember President Reagan lived that mantra: Trust but verify,” she said. “We want to be able to trust those who are screaming for democracy there in Egypt, that there is a true sincere desire for freedoms. And the challenge that we have, though, is how do we verify that what we are told, what it is that the American public are being fed via media, via protesters, via the government there in Egypt in order for us to have some sound information to make wise decisions on what our position is.”

On the question of “who’s going to fill the void” after Mubarak leaves office, Palin said “Is it going to be the Muslim Brotherhood? We should not stand for that, or with that, or by that.”

She told the interviewer, “Any radical Islamists, no, that is not who we should be supporting or standing by. So we need to find out who was behind all the turmoil and the revolt and the protests so that good decisions can be made in terms of who we will stand by and support.”

Super Bowl Participants Do Shoutouts To The Troops

Super Bowl participants take time out to send some pre-game messages to the troops


American Donors Send Deployed Troops Pizza for Super Bowl

Super Bowl: 139,080 pounds of wings on way to troops in Afghanistan, Iraq

Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support officials will help to add to this year's Super Bowl experience for deployed troops by supplying U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan with all the wings, pizza and chili they can handle.

As deployed troops in remote locations watch the Steelers and Packers square off, they can feast on fries, jalapeno poppers with cheddar and cream cheese, chicken wings, onion rings and NA beer (no alcohol).

"We cannot do enough to say thank you to our deployed men and women in uniform sacrificing and serving to protect our way of life here in America," said Richard Ellis, the acting commander of DLA Troop Support. "It is our pleasure and honor to serve them up some familiar fare so they can have a full Super Bowl experience before they continue on their mission."

Worst President In US History Has Record Disapproval Rate For Obama

Press TV

Barack Obama's second year in office has polarized the US as a 68 point gap divides the two major political camps in the country over his performance, a recent Gallup poll shows.

In fact, no president since President Dwight Eisenhower, over 50 years ago, has had a more polarizing second year than Obama.

Results revealed that 81 percent of Democrats and only 13 percent of Republicans have expressed their approval of the condition, indicating a whopping 68 point approval gap between the two parties.

The poll linked Obama's disapproval rating to the poorly performing economy, adding that "the other presidents with low second-year averages also took office during difficult economic times," reports Newsroom America.

Two years into President Obama's presidency, he has failed to deliver on a significant number of his campaign slogans including upending the lobbying culture in Washington, bolstering the US economy, and bringing transparency to Washington.

"[Obama] completely ignored the fact that the country is mired in a grinding recession, with basically 25 percent -- one in four Americans -- out of work or working at a part time job… and he talked about the country having broken the back of the recession as though it's over," Dave Lindorff - author and investigative journalist - told Press TV in an exclusive interview.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 23% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17 (see trends).

The president’s Approval Index ratings have fallen nine points since Monday as the crisis in Egypt unfolds. Most of the decline comes from a fall in the number who Strongly Approve of the president’s performance (30% on Monday, 23% now). However, for the first time since mid-December, the number who Strongly Disapprove has moved back over the 40% mark for five straight days. The Strongly Disapprove total had been above 40% for most of 2010 but fell to the high-30s after the president and Senate Republicans reached a deal to extend the Bush Administration

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

I really believe all that BS about his being the comeback kid was media hype. No way did he have a comeback not a serious one.

And for all you liberals that lurk and read this blog. YOUR president is the worst president our country has ever had and his hate for our country and guess what for YOU too abounds. You are simply a tool to vote for him and nothing else. Wake up and look at the things he has done that are seriously going to change your life, your income, your taxes, and your FREEDOM.

We all warned you and you would not listen. His associations alone should have been enough to make you run not walk away from this anti-American muslim.

Sarah Palin's Keynote Speech At The Anniversary of Reagan’s 100th Birthday


On this video Sarah beings her speech at 5:58 . This is the full speech that Sarah gave last night.

Sarah Palin gave the keynote last night at the anniversary of Reagan’s 100th birthday. Here are a few quotes her speech:

"The Left’s version of American exceptionalism “is an exceptionally big government.”

“My fellow Americans, this is not the road to national greatness. It is the road to ruin.”

“And know that we are a force for good in this world, and that is nothing to apologize for.”

“In 76 the GOP listened to him, in 1980, the people listened to him, and in 1984 the WORLD listened to him”

"Stimulus... hasn’t stimulated ANYTHING but The TEA PARTY!!!"

"The message was sent at the ballot box and it was an historic election. We were just told that the era of big government is here to stay and you will pay for it whether you want it or not. But they can't sell it to us. So this new version isn't just the same as the Great Society, it is much worse. It is couched in the language of national greatness. That is their version of American Exceptionalism. It is an exceptionally big government," Sarah Palin said at the Reagan Ranch on Friday night.

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

The intro is also excellent and then Sarah gave a wonderful speech!!

Obama Trades British Nuclear Secrets to Get Russians to Sign START Treaty

WikiLeaks cables: US agrees to tell Russia Britain's nuclear secrets

By Matthew Moore, Gordon Rayner and Christopher Hope

The US secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain’s nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty, The Daily Telegraph can disclose. Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week

HMS Vanguard is Britain's lead Trident-armed submarine. The US, under a nuclear deal, has agreed to give the Kremlin the serial numbers of the missiles it gives Britain.


Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.

The fact that the Americans used British nuclear secrets as a bargaining chip also sheds new light on the so-called “special relationship”, which is shown often to be a one-sided affair by US diplomatic communications obtained by the WikiLeaks website.

Details of the behind-the-scenes talks are contained in more than 1,400 US embassy cables published to date by the Telegraph, including almost 800 sent from the London Embassy, which are published online today. The documents also show that:

America spied on Foreign Office ministers by gathering gossip on their private lives and professional relationships.

Intelligence-sharing arrangements with the US became strained after the controversy over Binyam Mohamed, the former Guantánamo Bay detainee who sued the Government over his alleged torture.

David Miliband disowned the Duchess of York by saying she could not “be controlled” after she made an undercover TV documentary.

Tens of millions of pounds of overseas aid was stolen and spent on plasma televisions and luxury goods by corrupt regimes.

A series of classified messages sent to Washington by US negotiators show how information on Britain’s nuclear capability was crucial to securing Russia’s support for the “New START” deal.

Although the treaty was not supposed to have any impact on Britain, the leaked cables show that Russia used the talks to demand more information about the UK’s Trident missiles, which are manufactured and maintained in the US.

Washington lobbied London in 2009 for permission to supply Moscow with detailed data about the performance of UK missiles. The UK refused, but the US agreed to hand over the serial numbers of Trident missiles it transfers to Britain.

Professor Malcolm Chalmers said: “This appears to be significant because while the UK has announced how many missiles it possesses, there has been no way for the Russians to verify this. Over time, the unique identifiers will provide them with another data point to gauge the size of the British arsenal.”

Duncan Lennox, editor of Jane’s Strategic Weapons Systems, said: “They want to find out whether Britain has more missiles than we say we have, and having the unique identifiers might help them.”

While the US and Russia have long permitted inspections of each other’s nuclear weapons, Britain has sought to maintain some secrecy to compensate for the relatively small size of its arsenal.

William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, last year disclosed that “up to 160” warheads are operational at any one time, but did not confirm the number of missiles.

UPDATE, 8:42 PM Friday 2/4/2011– Nile Gardiner is calling for Congressional Hearings in Washington, and Parliamentary Hearings in London.

The Obama Administration betrays Britain to appease the Russians over New START

By Nile Gardiner

The latest revelation from Wikileaks is the most damaging so far to the Anglo-American Special Relationship. The disclosure in The Telegraph today that the Obama Administration “secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain’s nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty” points to an astonishing betrayal of America’s closest friend and ally, that may have significant implications for the relationship between David Cameron and Barack Obama.

The Telegraph report confirms the extraordinary lengths to which Washington stooped to meet Russian demands, which stunningly included passing on British nuclear secrets to a major strategic adversary.

As the Prime Minister and senior British ministers head to Germany this weekend to take part in the Munich Security Conference, key questions must be asked of their US counterparts, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as to the exact nature of the deal struck with Russia, and what more has been compromised in relation to British national security.

The matter is serious enough to merit Congressional hearings in Washington as well as parliamentary hearings in London. It is easy to see why the Obama team refused to allow the US Senate access to the negotiating documents for New START, as they would have sparked outrage on both sides of the Atlantic that would almost certainly have killed the Treaty. The Telegraph report clearly contradicts repeated claims by the Obama negotiating team that no side deals were struck with their Russian counterparts.


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

Selling out our best ally for the sake of mollifying his leftist base. Disgusting in the extreme and it compromises our national defense.

It is going to take decades to undo the harm this manchurian candidate has done to our country.

Obama undermined Britain against their wishes just to get a treaty with Russia. He is destabilizing our nation and the entire planet at lightning speed.

David Cameron could become a popular politician by cutting off diplomatic relations with the US right now. And how could we blame him.

House Prepares Investigation of the 733 Obamacare Waivers

House Prepares Investigation of Obamacare Waivers


The Republican congressman leading the investigation into the Obama administration’s decision to grant more than 700 waivers to the new health care law is questioning whether the law could be effective if so many waivers are needed.

Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) also noted the high percentage of Obama-supporting labor unions that received waivers – which exempt them from a provision in the new health care law that bans annual limits on what insurance plans will pay for medical coverage.

“The American people repeatedly have been told that the new health care law is an effective and responsible plan for overhauling the nation’s health care system,” Rep. Stearns told in a statement. “Yet, if the law is so good, why are so many waivers to the law being granted?”

Stearns is chairman of the subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which is investigating the waivers granted to various companies, unions, non-profit organizations and states and municipalities.

In a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Stearns and Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) are seeking to find out how many entities applied for waivers, how many were granted waivers, and how many were denied waivers. They also want to know what the criteria are for granting or denying waivers.

The number of waivers grew from zero in September to 222 by the end of 2010 and 733 at the end of January.

“From December 2010 to January 2011 the number of waivers grew from 222 to over 700,” Stearns said in a statement to “And yes, a lot of these waivers are going to the unions. The Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce Committee is investigating these waivers and we have requested from the Department of Health and Human Services the documents detailing the internal deliberations on what entities are seeking waivers and what entities have been granted or denied waivers. As a matter of fairness, I must question the value of a law that requires so many waivers.” has reported that the United Federation of Teachers, representing New York City School Teachers, is the largest recipient of waivers so far. The UFT is a member of the American Federation of Teachers, a major contributor to the Democratic Party.

In addition, several locals of the Service Employee International Union (SEIU) and the United Food and Commercial Workers union, both major contributors to Democratic candidates, received waivers.

Wild Thing's comment......

"And Barack Obama, as much I support him in many ways, there is a transactional quality to the guy that is chilling."

This is your Messiah, he hasn’t changed a bit from day one. If anything, he’s worse.....if that’s possible.

I would say it’s not a “transactional” quality, it’s that Obama is, or is very close to being, a psychopath. No authentic empathy; no emotional grasp of social dynamics; no inner voice that speaks humanity to him.

“And Barack Obama, as much I support him in many ways...”

LOL Sounds like the tingle is fading. A bit late Chris.

Obama in Contempt Over Gulf Drill Ban, Judge Rules

U.S. in Contempt Over Gulf Drill Ban, Judge Rules


The Obama Administration acted in contempt by continuing its deepwater-drilling moratorium after the policy was struck down, a New Orleans judge ruled.

Interior Department regulators acted with “determined disregard” by lifting and reinstituting a series of policy changes that restricted offshore drilling, following the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, U.S. District Judge, Martin Feldman of New Orleans ruled yesterday.

“Each step the government took following the court’s imposition of a preliminary injunction showcases its defiance,” Feldman said in the ruling.

“Such dismissive conduct, viewed in tandem with the re-imposition of a second blanket and substantively identical moratorium, and in light of the national importance of this case, provide this court with clear and convincing evidence of the government’s contempt,” Feldman said.

Overly Broad

Feldman overturned the initial ban as overly broad on June 22, after the offshore-drilling industry and Gulf Coast political and business leaders challenged it. U.S. Interior Secretary Kenneth Salazar said later that day that he would “issue a new order in the coming days that eliminates any doubt that a moratorium is needed, appropriate, and within our authorities.”

In July, Salazar instituted a second drilling moratorium that was also challenged by an industry lawsuit claiming the ban was harming the Gulf Coast economy, which is heavily dependent on deepwater drilling activities. That ban was rescinded in October, before Feldman could rule on its validity.

Feldman later ruled that enhanced drilling safety rules Salazar imposed to permit companies to resume offshore exploration violated federal law, and he struck down those as well. Opponents of those rules complained to Feldman that regulators were continuing to block the resumption of drilling after Feldman’s rulings.

“President Obama claims to have lifted the Gulf moratorium, yet not a single deepwater permit has been issued in nine months,” Jim Adams, the association’s president, said in a release after the ruling. “As a result, thousands of workers are out of jobs, Americans are paying more for gasoline and heating oil, and our nation is becoming even more dependent on unstable nations for our energy needs.”

Feldman also ordered the government to pay the legal fees of Hornbeck Offshore Services LLC, which filed the initial lawsuit. The company had described the fees as “significant.”

Hornbeck “was put to considerable expense, after Judge Feldman issued the injunction, contending with the government’s litigation posturing and defiance of the court’s order,” Sam Giberga, the company’s general counsel, said today in an e-mail.

“The government was not at liberty to impose its own will after the court struck down the policy,” Giberga said. “The government, like any citizen, had to obey the ruling, even if it didn’t like it.”

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

Obama constantly ignores and gives his middle finger to Judges that rule on things he does not agree with.

There should be consequences for violating the oath of office, which is to uphold and defend the Constitution.

Trying to pass unconstitutional legislation should be criminalized, and violators imprisoned and fined.

Obama is also in contempt of Florida Judge Vinson on the Obamacare ruling.

Time for McCarthyism on steroids!

'Systematic Targeting' of Journalists in Egypt

Greg Palkot

Fox News John Roberts reports on Greg Palkot And Crew Severely Beaten, Hospitalized In Cairo

"They were forced to leave their position when a Molotov cocktail was thrown at it, a large fire erupted, they were forced to flee. They ran out and ran right into the pro Mubarak crowd and were severely beaten and had to be taken to the hospital, spent the night in the hospital. The extent of their injuries was fairly grave, however, they have been released from the hospital. Palkot was beaten badly and Wiig may have a broken jaw.

FOX Nation

FOX News

Violence between pro- and anti-government factions in Egypt has spilled over to Western journalists covering the unrest.

Several journalists have been attacked or threatened, including Fox Business Network’s Ashley Webster and Fox News’ Greg Palkot.

Webster tells Fox News that security burst into his hotel room and forced the cameraman off the balcony, shouting that they will kill them.

“This crowd has been very angry toward journalists,” he told Fox News.

Greg Palkot was hospitalized after being severely beaten by Egyptian protesters.

Greg Palkot, covering the growing violence at Tahrir Square, was also confronted by several pro- and anti-government protesters. In the middle of the chaos, Palkot said that 30 rioters, with the help of an Egyptian military officer, fended off a large crowd of people and allowed Palkot and his cameraman to slip down a back alley and into a small hotel.

The White House is calling on the Egyptian government to immediately release any journalists who have been detained in the course of covering the country's political unrest, saying the "systematic targeting" of reporters is "totally unacceptable."

The Obama administration strongly condemned the behavior of pro-government supporters, after a number of international journalists -- including Fox Business Network's Ashley Webster, and Fox News' Greg Palkot and Olaf Wiig -- were attacked, intimidated and in some cases jailed in Cairo. As pro- and anti-government demonstrators continue to clash, those covering the historic events have apparently become a target as well. The Obama administration claimed the acts were part of a concerted campaign.

"This also is completely and totally unacceptable," White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said aboard Air Force One Thursday. "Any journalist that has been detained should be released immediately. We need to be clear that the world is watching the actions that are being taken right now in Egypt."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also called on the country's government and army to provide protection. "Freedom of assembly, freedom of expression and freedom of the press are pillars of an open and inclusive society. It is especially in times of crisis that governments must demonstrate their adherence to these universal values," she said.

Earlier, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley condemned the intimidation.

"There is a concerted campaign to intimidate international journalists in Cairo and interfere with their reporting," Crowley tweeted.

Webster told Fox News that security burst into his hotel room and forced the cameraman off the balcony, shouting that they will kill them.

"This crowd has been very angry toward journalists," he told Fox News.

The Egyptian government has accused media outlets of being sympathetic to protesters who want Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to quit now rather than complete his term as he has pledged.

The Greek daily newspaper Kathimerini said its correspondent in Cairo was hospitalized with a stab wound to the leg after being attacked by pro-Mubarak demonstrators in central Tahrir Square. He has been released. A Greek newspaper photographer was also beaten.

The injured Greek journalist, Petros Papaconstantinou, said on Kathimerini's website that: "I was spotted by Mubarak supporters. They ... beat me with batons on the head and stabbed me lightly in the leg. Some soldiers intervened, but Mubarak's supporters took everything I had on me in front of the soldiers."

The Qatar-based pan-Arab broadcaster Al-Jazeera said in an e-mail that three of its journalists were detained by security forces and another was reported missing. Egyptian authorities have complained the network's round-the-clock coverage was slanted toward protesters and could encourage more unrest.

Reporters Without Borders issued a statement Thursday condemning the actions of pro-Mubarak supporters.

"This has gone beyond censorship. This is now about ridding Cairo of all journalists working for foreign news media," the group said.
The leaders of France, Germany, Britain, Italy and Spain said in a joint statement that the "attacks against journalists are completely unacceptable."

Turkey's state broadcaster TRT, said its Egypt correspondent, Metin Turan, was beaten by a group of around 15 pro-Mubarak demonstrators with batons and lost a tooth in the attack. His camera, money and cell phone were stolen.

Three other Turkish journalists were also stopped and roughed up near Tahrir square, TRT said.
Polish state television TVP said that two of its crews were detained in Cairo. One was released after one of its camera's was smashed, it said.

CNN's Anderson Cooper and two Associated Press correspondents were also roughed up in the crowd.

Reporter Jean-Francois Lepine of Canada's CBC all-French RDI network said that he and a cameraman were surrounded by a mob that began hitting them, until they were rescued by the Egyptian army.

"Without them, we probably would have been beaten to death," he said.

Egypt: ABC News Reporter Brian Hartman Threatened With Beheading


A group of angry Egyptian men carjacked an ABC News crew and threatened to behead them today in the latest and most menacing attack on foreign reporters trying to cover the anti-government uprising.

Producer Brian Hartman, cameraman Akram Abi-hanna and two other ABC News employees were surrounded on a crowded road that leads from Cairo’s airport to the city’s downtown area.

While ABC News and other press agencies had been taking precautions to avoid volatile situations, the road to the airport had been a secure route until today. One of their two vehicles was carrying cameras and transmission equipment strapped to the roof, indicating they were foreign journalists.

Hartman says it was only through the appeal of Abi-hanna, who is Lebanese and a veteran ABC cameraman, that they were saved from being killed or severely beaten.

“We thought we were goners,” Hartman said later. “We absolutely thought we were doomed.”
Word of their harrowing ordeal came in a Twitter message from Hartman that stated, “Just escaped after being carjacked at a checkpoint and driven to a compound where men surrounded the car and threatened to behead us.”

“The men released us only after our camera man appealed to the generous spirit of the Egyptian people, hugging and kissing an elder,” he added in a subsequent tweet.

David MUIR: "In the last 24 hours at least 100 journalists and reporters have been attacked"


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

I do hope that Greg Palkot and Wiig weren’t injured as badly as it sounds. I really respected Greg Palkot for speaking up about our troops during the Abu Ghraib aftermath.

Here is FOX New Greg Palkot blog

And Fox News Channel journalist Olaf Wiig is the same man who was kidnapped and held hostage in Gaza with Steve Centanni. They were both released after a forced on-camera conversion to Islam, along with the rumored $2 Million in ransom paid by Fox News. And now this, how horrible and they go back into the den with evil again.

Obama Blocking 103 Gulf Drilling Permits

Seen at an idle shipyard Morgan City LA.

Obama Administration Blocking 103 Gulf Drilling Permits

Big Government

As oil prices continue to climb, a backlog of more than 100 offshore drilling plans for the Gulf of Mexico are awaiting approval from the Obama administration, according to federal data.

The federal government has not approved a single new exploratory drilling plan in the Gulf of Mexico since lifting its deepwater drilling moratorium on Oct. 12. There are currently 103 plans awaiting review by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement.

The information reveals that the Obama administration — not the oil industry — is the culprit for the slowdown of drilling activity in the Gulf. The Gulf of Mexico accounts for more than 25 percent of domestic oil production.

“These new findings prove that BOEMRE cannot claim it isn’t receiving job-creating plans from oil exploration and production companies,” said Gregory Rusovich, chairman of the Business Council of Greater New Orleans and the River Region. “The plans are there. Until BOEMRE reviews the 103 plans awaiting approval, our economy’s stability remains in jeopardy.”

Every two weeks Greater New Orleans Inc. releases a Gulf Permit Index based on publicly available federal data. Thursday’s index revealed an 88 percent decline in deepwater permits compared to the historical average. Not a single deepwater permit was approved in January.

Even shallow-water permits have taken a hit in the Gulf, despite not being subject to the administration’s moratorium last year. Only two new shallow-water permits were approved by BOEMRE in January. Permit issuance is down 30 percent from the historical average.

The decline in drilling is having an economic impact on the Gulf region and also threatens to exacerbate the problems with rising oil prices.

It also means less money for the federal government. With production in the Gulf of Mexico expected to drop this year by 220,000 barrels per day, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, that equals about $3.7 million in lost revenue each day (based on the $90/barrel oil and the royalty rate of 18.75 percent).


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

He is soooooo horrible, there is no other word for him except eviil, an evil heart for sure and he needs to be impeached yesterday. Everything he has done has been aimed at the destruction of the economy and our freedom. And he is not stupid, he knows what he does will make well over half of America hate him or at least be ticked off at his agenda. I would be in the poll if taken of those that hate him....yep.

Obama is personally responsible for thousands to remain unemployed, loss of tax and royalty revenue to the US govt and to states such as Louisiana, and the increase in spending by the citizens of this country by increased prices and payments to foreign governments.

Impeach, Incarcerate, Deport!!!

President Ronald Reagan: 100 years

Ronald Reagan: 100 years

By Michael Giorgino

Giorgino is a retired Navy Surface Warfare Commander who lives in Coronado and practices law in San Diego.

Feb. 6, 2011 marks the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan's birth. Looking at his newborn son, Jack Reagan remarked, "He looks like a fat little Dutchman. But who knows, he might grow up to be president someday." From his earliest days, Ronald Reagan was a leader. His small town values, eloquence and charm were evident as an athlete, a lifeguard, a college class president, a sportscaster, and even as a Hollywood leading man.

Up until the early 1960s, Reagan had been a Democrat. But he came to see that the Democrat Party tended more and more toward a belief in big government and centralized authority. Reagan became a Republican and campaigned for Barry Goldwater in 1964. He gave a televised speech in which he spoke of limited government, economic freedom and peace through strength. Two years later, that message propelled Reagan into California's governor's mansion and, ultimately, into the White House.

I met Ronald Reagan in 1972 at the Republican Convention in Miami Beach, Fla. I was one of a few dozen Young Republican volunteers. Our grumpy handler was soon-to-be Watergate co-conspirator John Ehrlichman.

Reagan arrived in a summer suit, looking cool and comfortable in the 100-plus degree heat. He spoke briefly, we presented him with a T-shirt, and then he said: "It's not every day I get the opportunity to meet young people from all over the country, I'd love to take some questions."

Reagan began responding to our questions about the Vietnam War and about the anti-war riots raging outside the convention. Two, three, four questions, and hands kept popping up.

Ehrlichman stepped forward, looked impatiently at his watch, and said, "OK, last question."

Reagan snapped his head to the side and said, "John, do you have someplace you need to be?" "Well, er, yes ..." "Then why don't you go there," Reagan replied.

The governor asked us if there was someplace we needed to go (there wasn't). He took off his jacket and invited us to gather around on the ground. For the next hour, Ronald Reagan talked to us one-on-one about his vision of America. He warned us about the dangers of communism and all forms of totalitarianism. He spoke passionately about the virtues of economic liberty and freedom. He made clear his deep and abiding faith in mankind. And he told us we were the future and it was our responsibility to keep the torch of liberty alive.

I had the honor to serve in the U.S. Navy during the eight years of Ronald Reagan's presidency. I watched him inspire a renewed spirit of patriotism and pride in our armed forces. He transformed the long twilight struggle of the Cold War into the triumph of freedom around the world. The greatest honor of my military career was to be able to call that kind and extraordinary human being my commander-in-chief.

And what a thrill it was to join Nancy Reagan on July 23, 2004 at Naval Air Station North Island in welcoming the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) to her new homeport of San Diego. I was really touched when Mrs. Reagan told the thousands of uniformed men and women manning the rails, "I know my husband would want you to represent the best that this nation has to offer -- democracy, liberty and an abiding optimism for the future."

Ronald Reagan wanted peace, prosperity, and, above all, freedom for our country. But the greatest legacy of our "Great Communicator" was his eternal optimism. As dark as things seem at times, he believed that what is right will always eventually triumph. For Ronald Reagan, America remains a shining city on a hill whose greatest chapter is still to be written, for the best is yet to come.

Happy 100th birthday, President Reagan!

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

Wonderful tribute and memories. Thank you very much, and thank you also for your service Michael Giorgino to our country!

I am so grateful that Reagan was President in my lifetime.

This Sunday will be a celebration of Ronald Reagan.

A great quote by Reagan from 1988:

""Our party speaks for human freedom - for the sweep of liberties that are at the core of our existence. We do not shirk from our duties to preserve freedom so it can unfold across the world for yearning millions.

We believe that lasting peace comes only through strength and not through the goodwill of our adversaries.
We have a healthy skepticism of government - checking its excesses at the same time we're willing to harness its energy when it helps improve the lives of our citizens.
We have pretty strong notions that higher tax receipts are no inherent right of the Federal Government.
We respect the values that bind us together as families and as a nation.
I believe that God put this land between the two great oceans to be found by special people from every corner of the world who had that extra love of freedom that prompted them to leave their homeland and come to this land to make it a brilliant light beam of freedom to the world."

Obama Gives Thumps UP To Muslim Brotherhood

White House Gives Thumps Up To Muslim Brotherhood

FOX News

The Obama administration said for the first time that it supports a role for groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned Islamist organization, in a reformed Egyptian government.

The organization must reject violence and recognize democratic goals if the U.S. is to be comfortable with it taking part in the government, the White House said. But by even setting conditions for the involvement of such nonsecular groups, the administration took a surprise step in the midst of the crisis that has enveloped Egypt for the last week.

The statement was an acknowledgment that any popularly accepted new government will probably include groups that are not considered friendly to U.S. interests, and was a signal that the White House is prepared for that probability after 30 years of reliable relations with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Obama’s Brotherhood Moment

FrontPage Magazine

by Robert Spencer

Game over: Barack Obama has endorsed a role for the Muslim Brotherhood in a new, post-Mubarak government for Egypt.

This should come as no surprise. Obama has behaved consistently all along, from his refusal to back the protesters in Iran, who were demonstrating against an Islamic Republic, to his backing of these protesters in Egypt, to whom he has just given a green light to establish a government that, given numerous historical precedents, will likely be the precursor to an Islamic Republic.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Monday that a post-Mubarak Egyptian ruling group “has to include a whole host of important nonsecular actors that give Egypt a strong chance to continue to be [a] stable and reliable partner.”

Robert Malley, an Obama adviser and Mideast negotiator for Bill Clinton, explained that Obama’s expression of willingness to see the Brotherhood as part of a ruling coalition in Egypt was a “pretty clear sign that the U.S. isn’t going to advocate a narrow form of pluralism, but a broad one.”

~ snipet ~

Contrary to claims that it is a moderate organization, the Muslim Brotherhood is actually the prototypical Islamic supremacist, pro-Sharia group of the modern age.

The Brotherhood was no gathering of marginalized kooks. It grew in Egypt from 150 branches in 1936 to as many as 1,500 by 1944. In 1939 al-Banna referred to “100,000 pious youths from the Muslim Brothers from all parts of Egypt,” and although Lia believes he was exaggerating at that point, by 1944 membership was estimated as between 100,000 and 500,000.[7] By 1937 it had expanded beyond Egypt, setting up “several branches in Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, and Morocco, and one in each of Bahrain, Hadramawt, Hyderabad, Djibouti and,” Lia adds matter-of-factly, “Paris.”[8] These many thousands, dispersed around the world, heard al-Banna’s call to “prepare for jihad and be lovers of death.”

The Brotherhood has never rejected or renounced al-Banna’s vision or program. And now it is closer to implementing it in its homeland than it ever has been before – no little thanks to Barack Obama.


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

Very ominous. Not too long ago our policy was not to negotiate with terrorists. Now we support them. Obama said long ago that he would stand with the muslims. And he as done that consistently.

They know they can do whatever they want in the middle east and Obama will be no problem. And I’d say they’ve sized it up pretty accurately.

This video is so good it is Lt. Col. Oliver North he discusses Obama and the turmoil in Egypt, Mubarak's future. It is embedded and does not have a code to put here so I can only put the link. Good one to watch.

Senate Repeal Of Obamacare Fails 47-51 Party-Line Vote and VILE Union SEIU ( exempt from it) Lobbyed Hard Against Repeal

Senate Republicans took their stand — forcing the Dems to go on record in defense of the Obamacare nightmare from which hundreds of unions have escaped.

CLICK HERE to see how everyone voted.....Roll Call.

A Republican drive to repeal the year-old health care law ended in party-line defeat in the Senate on Wednesday, leaving the Supreme Court to render a final, unpredictable verdict on an issue steeped in political and constitutional controversy. The vote was 47-51. Moments earlier, the Senate agreed to make one relatively minor change in the law, voting to strip out a paperwork requirement for businesses.

Sen. McConnell said the fight is far from over!!!!

SEIU fights healthcare repeal after obtaining waivers from law

This is despite the fact that several SEIU chapters have been granted Obamacare waivers.

The Hill

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is lobbying hard against the amendment offered by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) to repeal the healthcare reform law.

SEIU has sent e-mails to Senate offices urging lawmakers to vote against the proposal to unwind President Obama’s signature domestic initiative.

“A vote in support of this amendment is a vote to raise out-of-pocket healthcare costs for working families and takes away critical consumer protections provided to Americans for the first time,” SEIU urged senators, according to a copy of the e-mail obtained by The Hill.

The lobby informed senators that a vote for McConnell’s amendment would count against them on its legislative scorecard.

SEIU’s outspoken defense of the law has prompted charges of hypocrisy from Republicans, given that some of the union’s chapters have sought waivers exempting them from a key provision of the law requiring the phaseout of health plans with low caps on annual benefits.


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

Democrats will never listen to the we the people NEVER!

Hypocritical thugs!

I swear I would love to meet one of the SEIU people in person........just once. It would make my day to tell them off.

Obama Has Made It Possible For "Islamist-supporters Infiltrate Obama Admin to Subvert US Security," Reveals ex-CIA'er, Clare Lopez

" Islamist-supporters infiltrate Obama Admin to subvert US security," reveals ex-CIA'er, Clare Lopez

Islamist-allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining U.S. security policy - explains counter-Intelligence expert, Prof. Clare Lopez. Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the Middle East, a network including well-known American diplomats, congressional representatives, figures from academia and the think tank world - with ties to the clerical regime in Tehran - is directing the Obama Administration's policy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Middle East.

Clare M. Lopez is a strategic policy and intelligence expert with a focus on Middle East, homeland security, national defense, and counterterrorism issues.

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

I will never get over that someone like obama could become president of our country. IMO there is some kind of evil sickness to cause people to vote for this person, to even want the agenda he pushes, the whole thing is living a nightmare.

Just a few to remember that obama has put in place:

Dalia Mogahed, a hijab-clad American Muslim, has made history being the first Muslim woman appointed to a position in President Barack Obama's administration.

Arif Alikhan as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. Holding Israel entirely responsible for the "pattern of violence" in the Middle East, MPAC asserts that Hezbollah "could be called a liberation movement."

Kareem Shora Appointed by DHS Secretary Napolitano on Homeland Security Advisory Council . Janet Napolitano swore in to her official advisory council the head of an Arab American organization whose officials have labeled deadly anti-U.S. jihadists as "heroes" and opposed referring to Hamas as a terrorist organization.

Obama appointed Rachad Hussain as America’s envoy to the Organization of Islamic Conference, but Hussain publicly defended Sami al-Arian, a Florida professor who headed U.S. operations for the terrorist
group Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

There are others, these are just a few.

Sean Hannity to Anjem Choudary: "You're One Sick Miserable Evil SOB"

Sean Hannity debated radical anti-American Islamist Anjem Choudary on his show last night.

" Now here’s the point I’m trying to make to you and I will finish my thought. You believe every woman should wear a burqa. You’re a fascist. You want to ram that down people’s thoats. You want to cut off people’s hands that steal. You want to stone people that commit adultery. You want to rob Israel’s land. And, I believe, but you don’t have the courage to admit it because you are a coward, that you believe that people who killed 3,000 Americans are going to heaven and are going to get 72 virgins. So can you not step back from your sick twisted bizarre ideology here to see that those 3,000 people were innocent victims, sir… You’re one sick miserable evil S.O.B but thank you for coming on anyway.“

During the full length interview, the cleric would continually answer Hannity's question with a question back to Hannity.

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

Good for Hannity. If I had a talk show I would have this guy on my show just so I could say the same thing to his face. That would feel so good.

Back in October 2010 he made an alarming statement on Christiane Amanpour’s program on ABC, Anjem Choudary, a former British solicitors and Muslim cleric that spokesman for the group Islam4UK. Choudary contends eventually you'll see global Islamic rule, including here in the United States.

“We do believe as Muslims the East and the West will be governed by the Sharia,” Choudray. “Indeed we believe that one day the flag of Islam will fly over the White House. "

Senate Republicans Take First Step Toward Repealing and Replacing Obamacare ~ Vote Possibly Today!


Mark Levin talking about the significance of the ruling by a Federal Judge yesterday that ObamaCare is unconstitutional. Levin said the Obama Administration will be in contempt of court if they continue to try and implement ObamaCare.


Wiild Thing's comment.......

Good for the Senate Republicans!!

Rush was saying that the Republicans shouldn’t get lazy after the Judge Vinson Ruling. He said they should go for the jugular and continue to try to repeal Obamacare. McConnell’s smart in bringing up a vote on this Unconstitutional Health Care Law.

The Dem’s will be put on record and they will thusly incur the wrath of the voters very soon.

The Senate is supposed to vote on the bill TODAY.

Obama and DHS Snub Rep. Darrell Issa On First Major Document Deadline

Obama snubs Issa on first major document deadline

Daily Caller

The Obama administration snubbed top GOP oversight official Rep. Darrell Issa on his first major document deadline as new chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, sending a short letter promising to comply in response to a major information request that was due Saturday at noon.

But Issa is hitting back Tuesday with a demand key documents be sent in two days.

The Obama snub is the first sign of how the administration will respond to demands for documents and testimony by key officials from Republicans in control of the House now that the GOP holds the power of congressional subpoena.

A Jan. 28 letter from the Department of Homeland Security promised to cooperate with Issa’s document request sent Jan. 14 – but Issa’s deadline for the documents expired the next day.

“I asked DHS to produce this information by Jan. 29 – two weeks from the date of my second letter,” Issa says in his Feb. 1 reply to the deadline snub, “The department gave no indication that it would not be able to comply with the deadline.”

Further, Issa charges that top DHS officials actually instructed career employees not to search for the documents he is requesting.

“I was disappointed to learn that on or about Jan. 20, 2011, DHS’s Office of General Counsel instructed career staff in the Privacy Office not to search for documents responsive to my request,” Issa says in the Feb. 1 letter.

Issa is requesting documents from DHS about political interference with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the agency.

In July, the Associated Press reported top DHS officials told career employees to steer sensitive FOIA requests to Obama’s political advisers for unusual scrutiny.

FOIA requests by lawmakers, watchdog groups and journalists were subjected to the special political reviews.

In the letter to Napolitano, Issa requested that DHS turn over by noon on Thursday copies of any e-mails received from or sent to White House officials, including correspondence with Norman Eisen, the former special counsel to the president for ethics and government reform, and Cabinet Secretary Christopher Lu.

Issa also said he “was disappointed to learn” that less than two weeks ago DHS’s Office of General Counsel instructed “career staff” in the privacy office not to search for documents related to his request. Instead, the staff was told that associate general counsel Joe Maher would be handling the department’s response, according to Issa.

“This directive is inconsistent with your pledge to identify and produce documents expeditiously, and it raises question about the department’s commitment to the president’s effort to create ‘an unprecedented level of openness in Government’,” Issa said in the letter.

In his response to the deadline snub, Issa demands a set of key documents in two days, including e-mails between key DHS officials and the Obama White House.

Issa says the e-mails should be easy to find because all White House staff use similar e-mail addresses.
“As you know, e-mail to and from the White House is identifiable by the handle ‘’,” Issa says.

Further, Issa requests transcribed interviews with six top DHS officials about the issue, including Noah Kroloff, chief of staff to DHS Sec. Janet Napolitano. The interviews are set to begin the week of Feb. 7.

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

Dictators don’t answer to the little people.

More from the “Most Transparent Administration in History”.

Not only Obama snubs Issa in his investigation, but, the Department of Homeland Security snubs Issa. Now we have both Obama and the BIG SIS Janet's Department of Homeland Security's failure to comply to a Congressional subpoena.

No one ever explained to Obama that it doesn't pay to unnecessarily create enemies. His actions have merely served to harden Issa's resolve and to prove to others in Congress that he (Issa) is justified in his efforts to bring down Obama.

House GOP Readies Ban on EPA Greenhouse Gas Regulations

House GOP Readies Ban on EPA Greenhouse Gas Regulations

FOX News

In a sharp challenge to the Obama administration, House Republicans intend to unveil legislation Wednesday to ban the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act and expect to advance the bill quickly, officials disclosed Tuesday night.

The officials said the bill would nullify all of the steps the EPA has taken to date on the issue, including a threshold finding that greenhouse gases constitute a danger to the public health and welfare.

In addition, it seeks to strip the agency of its authority to use the law in any future attempts to crack down on the emissions from factories, utilities and other stationary sources.

Many scientists say that carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping pollution contribute to global warming, and attempts at regulating them is a major priority for President Barack Obama as well as environmentalists. Critics argue the evidence is thin and that new rules will drive up the cost of business and cause the loss of jobs.

The officials who described the GOP plans did so on condition of anonymity, saying they were not authorized to pre-empt the release of a draft measure prepared by the Energy and Commerce Committee, chaired by Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan.

The legislation marks yet another arena in which newly empowered House Republicans are moving quickly to challenge the administration.

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


As has been said many times before “the best defense is a good offense”. Glad to see an offense finally.

The EPA monster that has become too powerful, too expensive and is totally out of control. Enviroloonies Gone Wild.

Glenn Beck On The Coming Islamic Caliphate

GREAT JOB by Glenn Beck exposing the connection between the Muslim Brotherhood, American Left-Wing groups, Social Justice and an Islamic Caliphate that will swallow the Middle East and South Asia before it moves onto Europe and North America.

H/T Bare Naked Islam


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

I recommend sending this video to anyone that doubts what Islam is about and what their agenda and goal is for the entire world.

Prayers for Glenn Beck to stay safe. Glenn Beck is doing very dangerous work. Darkness doesn’t like sunlight.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s creed:

“Allah is our objective; the Koran is our law; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.”

Judge: Obama's Socialized Medicine Unconstitutional ~ Thank God

Judge uses Obama’s words against him

The Washington Times

In ruling against President Obama‘s health care law, federal Judge Roger Vinson used Mr. Obama‘s own position from the 2008 campaign against him, arguing that there are other ways to tackle health care short of requiring every American to purchase insurance.

“I note that in 2008, then-Senator Obama supported a health care reform proposal that did not include an individual mandate because he was at that time strongly opposed to the idea, stating that ‘if a mandate was the solution, we can try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody to buy a house,’” Judge Vinson wrote in a footnote toward the end of the 78-page ruling Monday.

Judge Vinson, a federal judge in the northern district of Florida, struck down the entire health care law as unconstitutional on Monday, though he is allowing the Obama administration to continue to implement and enforce it while the government appeals his ruling.

The footnote was attached to the most critical part of Judge Vinson‘s ruling, in which he said the “principal dispute” in the case was not whether Congress has the power to tackle health care, but whether it has the power to compel the purchase of insurance.

Judge Vinson used Mr. Obama‘s campaign words from an interview with CNN to show that there are other options that could fall within the Constitution — including then-candidate Obama‘s plan.

During the presidential campaign, one key difference between Mr. Obama and his chief opponent, then-Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, was Mrs. Clinton‘s plan required all Americans to purchase insurance, and Mr. Obama‘s did not.

In the heat of the primaries in 2008, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman predicted Mr. Obama‘s opposition to an individual mandate could come back to haunt him: “If Mr. Obama gets to the White House and tries to achieve universal coverage, he’ll find that it can’t be done without mandates — but if he tries to institute mandates, the enemies of reform will use his own words against him.”

Mr. Obama has since defended the constitutionality of the individual mandate, arguing it’s the linchpin of the program to bring in more customers, which is key to expanding the availability and affordability of insurance.

Much of the 78-page ruling was a discussion of how the nation’s founding fathers, such as James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, set limits on congressional power. Judge Vinson also hypothesized that, under the Obama administration‘s legal theory, the government could mandate eating broccoli.

White House officials said that sort of “surpassingly curious reading” called into question Judge Vinson‘s entire ruling.

“There’s something thoroughly odd and unconventional about the analysis,” said a White House official who briefed reporters late Monday afternoon, speaking on condition of anonymity.

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

This Judge is awesome. Love that he used nobama’s words against him.

HERE HERE, Judge Vincent!! You made the day for all freedom loving, Constitutional savy Conservative Americans!! It impacts us all and now on to the Supreme Court!!

Judge Vincent Born in Cadiz, Kentucky, Vinson attended the United States Naval Academy and graduated in 1962 with a bachelor’s degree in engineering. He served at Naval Air Station Pensacola as a Naval aviator from 1962–1968, attaining the rank of lieutenant. After his service, he attended Vanderbilt University and received his J.D. in 1971.

Returning to Pensacola, Florida, Vinson joined the law firm of Beggs & Lane, where he practiced general civil law from 1971–1983. He was nominated to the federal bench by President Ronald Reagan on September 9, 1983 to a seat vacated by Lynn C. Higby, was confirmed by the Senate on October 4, and received his commission a day later.

Obama Hates Our Constitution And His Administration Fires Back At The Judge Vinson Decision On Socialized Medicine (Obamacare)

Obama Administration Fires Back At Judge Vinson And His Decision

The White House said the Obamacare ruling by Judge Roger Vinson was a plain case of judicial overreach.


Earlier today Judge Roger Vinson ruled that the health reform legislation passed last year is unconstitutional. Not surprisingly this evoked a harsh reaction from the administration, which does not want to its main domestic accomplishment during the President’s first two years in office to be nullified by the courts.

On the White House’s blog, spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter writes: “Today’s ruling – issued by Judge Vinson in the Northern District of Florida – is a plain case of judicial overreaching.” She continues: “Those who claim that the “individual responsibility” provision exceeds Congress’ power to regulate interstate commerce because it penalizes “inactivity” are simply wrong. Individuals who choose to go without health insurance are actively making an economic decision that impacts all of us.”


Wild Thing's comment......

So according to Obama and his other traitors, the Constitution and the Framer’s intent is now “Judicial Activism”.

The judge took great care to examine the legal precedents and show why Congress overreached. He nailed why the individuals had standing. He showed the Constitutional basis for his ruling.

Excuse me Obama jerk, more than half of all states are suing to nullify Obamacare and three states – Missouri, Arizona and Oklahoma – rejected the Obamacare mandate via ballot measure.

Sen. Jim DeMint said yesterday that all 47 GOP Senators are now on board as co-sponsors of his Obamacare repeal bill. Thank you God! And thank you Jim Demint.

Ann Coulter: I'm Torn on Today's Obamacare Ruling... I Just Got My Waiver

“So right now federal officials are not allowed to enforce Obamacare. Though, I am torn, because on one hand the law is clearly unconstitutional. On the other hand, I just got my White House waiver

I must say, there are two court opinions on each side. Obviously, I find the two that find the two that call it unconstitutional more compelling for logical reasons. There’s no point in having any limits on Congress’s authority if they can force all citizens to buy a product. And, by the way, if this is constitutional then Republicans should turn around and mandate that all citizens be force to purchase a gun and a Bible. And, there’s a lot more evidence that owning a gun and a Bible is better for society than everyone having to buy health insurance.”

Tawdry details of Obamacare

Last year, we learned that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) had granted 111 waivers to protect a lucky few from the onerous regulations of the new national health care overhaul. That number quickly and quietly climbed to 222, and last week we learned that the number of Obamacare privileged escapes has skyrocketed to 733.

Among the fortunate is a who’s who list of unions, businesses and even several cities and four states (Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio and Tennessee) but none of the friends of Barack feature as prominently as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

How can you get your own free pass from Obamacare? Maybe you can just donate $27 million to President Obama‘s campaign efforts. That’s what Andy Stern did as president of SEIU in 2008. He has been the most frequent guest at Mr. Obama‘s White House.


Wild Thing's comment......

I love how she states things. heh heh Coulter said she has gotten a waiver...LOL!

Every citizen of the United States of America should be exempted.

Wouldn't the left just love to have it forced on them to have to buy a Bible and a gun.

Obama Open To A Role For Islamists (Muslim Brotherhood) In New Egypt Government

U.S. open to a role for Islamists in new Egypt government


The Obama administration said for the first time that it supports a role for groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned Islamist organization, in a reformed Egyptian government.

The organization must reject violence and recognize democratic goals if the U.S. is to be comfortable with it taking part in the government, the White House said. But by even setting conditions for the involvement of such nonsecular groups, the administration took a surprise step in the midst of the crisis that has enveloped Egypt for the last week.

The statement was an acknowledgment that any popularly accepted new government will probably include groups that are not considered friendly to U.S. interests, and was a signal that the White House is prepared for that probability after 30 years of reliable relations with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Monday’s statement was a “pretty clear sign that the U.S. isn’t going to advocate a narrow form of pluralism, but a broad one,” said Robert Malley, a Mideast peace negotiator in the Clinton administration.


This below is From June of 2009.......................

Muslim Brotherhood PM invited by Obama to attend speech in Cairo

The International Middle East Media Center was the only one to report on the invitation, but it was more of an aside to the main thrust of its article, which dealt with al-Qaeda leader Al-Zawahiri. However, this is an instance when the ‘by the way’ part of a report is more important than the lead story.

The Muslim Brotherhood has been a thorn in President Mubarak's side for many decades. Many of its members, at one time or another have been jailed.

This is an audacious move on the part of Obama, which managed to irritate the Egyptian leadership who say that the Brotherhood is 'illegal'. Obama is not concerned about ruffling Mubarak's feathers.


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

Here we go... the real Obama. Obama working for Islam and against the U.S. and our allies.

If this happens, it will make it so that obama can then funnel American tax payer money directly to his homies. I hate obama.

Chris Matthews Thinks The Panama Canal Is In Egypt

Chris Mattews describes the great things about Egypt including the Panama Canal

CHRIS MATTHEWS: You know, the great thing about Egypt is it’s its own country. It was always there before there was an America or Britain or anything, there has been an Egypt. It’s like China. It’s a real country. It wasn’t just carved off the map or out of the map by the Europeans, like so many African and third world countries have.

It’s got a real rooted history. It’s not just an Arab country. It was a country long before it was an Arab country — long before Islam, there was an Egypt. Will it see itself in this moment of chaos as joining a greater Islamic world or is holding to its national identity?

AMB. MARC GINSBERG, FMR. U.S. AMBASSADOR TO MOROCCO (via telephone)GINSBERG: There’s no doubt that the Egyptians view themselves as the center of culture in the Arab and the Muslim world and the center of Islamic learning. I studied there. I used to take classes at the al-Azhar University, which is considered to be the pre-eminent Islamic institution in the Muslim world, Chris.


GINSBERG: And the fact is that there’s enormous pride going back to the history of the pharaohs. The Egyptians embrace their ancient culture. But they’re very dissatisfied with their current regime.

MATTHEWS: Well, let me ask you about the prospects we’re looking at as an American. We’re looking at the map of the world right now and where Egypt sits in the world. It’s so strategically located. It has, of course, the Nile River. It has, of course, the Panama Canal.


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

The Panama Canal is in Egypt now? Shhh! Don’t tell China!

LOL and he had the map right there. hahahaha

This tool had the nerve to call Michele Bachmann names and treat her like she was stupid.

And imagine his furor if Sarah Palin had made this mistake on Fox. Of course he mis-spoke, but when Sarah Palin makes a slip in her interview with Glenn Beck when she called “North Korea” our allies, the left gets all excited about it and calls her an idiot for not knowing the difference between North and South.

Well, two can play the same game!

This one I always laugh hard at:

Congressman Hank Johnson who feared that Guam might tip over, if we put too many more Marines on it:
