Exclusive: Obama Authorizes Secret Help For Libya Rebels

Exclusive: Obama authorizes secret help for Libya rebels


President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, government officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

Obama signed the order, known as a presidential "finding", within the last two or three weeks, according to government sources familiar with the matter.

Such findings are a principal form of presidential directive used to authorize secret operations by the Central Intelligence Agency. This is a necessary legal step before such action can take place but does not mean that it will.

As is common practice for this and all administrations, I am not going to comment on intelligence matters," White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement. "I will reiterate what the president said yesterday -- no decision has been made about providing arms to the opposition or to any group in Libya."

The CIA declined comment.

News that Obama had given the authorization surfaced as the President and other U.S. and allied officials spoke openly about the possibility of sending arms supplies to Gaddafi's opponents, who are fighting better-equipped government forces.

The United States is part of a coalition, with NATO members and some Arab states, which is conducting air strikes on Libyan government forces under a U.N. mandate aimed at protecting civilians opposing Gaddafi.

Interviews by U.S. networks on Tuesday, Obama said the objective was for Gaddafi to "ultimately step down" from power. He spoke of applying "steady pressure, not only militarily but also through these other means" to force Gaddafi out.

Obama said the U.S. had not ruled out providing military hardware to rebels. "It's fair to say that if we wanted to get weapons into Libya, we probably could. We're looking at all our options at this point," he told ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer.

In Washington, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton insisted to reporters that no decision had yet been taken.

U.S. officials monitoring events in Libya say neither Gaddafi's forces nor the rebels, who have asked the West for heavy weapons, now appear able to make decisive gains.

While U.S. and allied airstrikes have seriously damaged Gaddafi's military forces and disrupted his chain of command, officials say, rebel forces remain disorganized and unable to take full advantage of western military support.

People familiar with U.S. intelligence procedures said that Presidential covert action "findings" are normally crafted to provide broad authorization for a range of potential U.S. government actions to support a particular covert objective.

In order for specific operations to be carried out under the provisions of such a broad authorization -- for example the delivery of cash or weapons to anti-Gaddafi forces -- the White House also would have to give additional "permission" allowing such activities to proceed.

Members of Congress have expressed anxiety about U.S. government activities in Libya. Some have recalled that weapons provided by the U.S. and Saudis to mujahedeen fighting Soviet occupation forces in Afghanistan in the 1980s later ended up in the hands of anti-American militants.

There are fears that the same thing could happen in Libya unless the U.S. is sure who it is dealing with. The chairman of the House intelligence committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, said on Wednesday he opposed supplying arms to the Libyan rebels fighting Gaddafi "at this time."

"We need to understand more about the opposition before I would support passing out guns and advanced weapons to them," Rogers said in a statement.


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

Why are “secret” orders being revealed? And it is all over the place. Obama can't even do covert right.

There are 2200 Marines on the Kearsarge offshore. Another 2200 on the way.(Should be at Gibralta by now). And 2-3000 Paratroopers in Vincenza Italy.

This was a post I did last Sundaty:

Energized Muslim Brotherhood In Libya Eyes A Prize

Muslim Brotherhood is siding with the rebellion. In February, as protests in Libya began, Yusuf al Qaradawi -- an Egyptian preacher in Qatar widely viewed as the Muslim Brotherhood's chief spiritual guide -- issued a fatwa or religious ruling obliging any Libyan soldier who had the opportunity to do so to assassinate the leader. Al-Amin Bilhaj, a leading figure in the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood and the President of the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) recently traveled to Benghazi, the headquarters of the rebel movement, according to Hresha.

Notice too how Obama is attacking only those regimes that keep the Arab world from destroying Israel!!! The head of the UN recently stated that Israel needs to be persuaded to get out of what he calls 'occupied' territory and for Jerusalem to be divided...And as we can see, Obama has given up any and all US sovereignty for the rule of the UN.

Obama the jihadi sympathizer in the WH........

Al Qaeda's Libya Pilgrimage

Al Qaeda's Libya Pilgrimage

World News

As debate rages in Washington over whether to arm anti-Gaddafi rebels, an exclusive report by The Daily Beast indicates al Qaeda forces are gearing up to join the rebels and seize power in Libya.

As the battle for the future of Libya continues, the excitement is almost palpable among Libyan-born al Qaeda fighters and other Arabs hunkered down in Pakistan's remote and lawless tribal area. According to Afghan Taliban sources close to Osama bin Laden's terrorist group, some of the 200 or so Libyans operating near the Afghan border may be on their way home to steer the anti-Gaddafi revolution in a more Islamist direction.

"We have heard a number of fighters have already departed from the tribal area," says an Afghan commander who is linked to the powerful Haqqani network, a North Waziristan-based organization that shelters many al Qaeda fighters. Others may be on their way. "Libyans and Arabs seem to be getting ready for departure and are eager to go home and fight," says the Afghan source. "I've heard that some fighters are saying goodbye and giving thanks with kind words to their (Pakistani) tribal friends who have been sheltering them." 

Since the anti-Gaddafi revolution began last month, al Qaeda—especially Libyan-born affiliates—have viewed the fighting as an opportunity to spread their radical Islamist ideology. Indeed, as one Afghan Taliban operative who helps facilitate the movement of al Qaeda militants between the tribal area and Pakistani cities told The Daily Beast earlier this month: "This rebellion is the fresh breeze they've been waiting years for. They realize that if they don't use this opportunity, it could be the end of their chances to turn Libya toward a real Islamic state, as Afghanistan once was."

Now, as the White House and NATO continue to debate the possible ramifications of arming the Libyan opposition, the Haqqani network-linked Afghan commander says Libyan al Qaeda affiliates seem to be more "enthusiastic" about the war against Gaddafi every day. And from what the Afghan Taliban commander has seen, there appears to be more than "flickers" of al Qaeda's presence in Libya, the description given by NATO commander Admiral James Stavridis. According to the Afghan commander, al Qaeda fighters can't believe their good luck that U.S. and NATO aircraft—the same forces that have dropped bombs on their heads in Afghanistan and Pakistan—are now raining down ordnance against Gaddafi.

Over the past few decades, several Libyans have held top roles in al Qaeda. Some traveled to Afghanistan in the 1980s to fight the Soviets and stayed, eventually teaming up with bin Laden after his return from Sudan in 1996. Taliban sources estimate there were some 200 Libyans with bin Laden in Afghanistan at the time of the 9/11 attacks.

Senator Marco Rubio: America Can't Survive Another Obama Term

Why I Won't Vote to Raise the Debt Limit

The Wall Street Journal

Everyone in Washington knows how to cut spending. The time to start is now. .


Excellent article written by Marco at the Wall Street Journal ~ Wild Thing

Below is a write up from Liberty Action Report about Marco and his stand.

Today, ALG ( Americans for Limited Government ) President Bill Wilson praised Senator Marco Rubio for his "courageous stand" against increasing the $14.294 trillion federal debt ceiling

Senator Rubio outlined his conditions for approving any increase in the ceiling, which will be hit between April 15th and May 31st according to U.S. Treasury estimates.

"I will vote to defeat an increase in the debt limit unless it is the last one we ever authorize and is accompanied by a plan for fundamental tax reform, an overhaul of our regulatory structure, a cut to discretionary spending, a balanced-budget amendment, and reforms to save Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid," wrote Senator Rubio.

Wilson said Rubio's conditions were "reasonable." He explained, "Look, with a national debt that has already soared above $14 trillion that will become larger than the entire economy, soon the debt will become too large to even refinance, let alone ever be repaid." By 2021, the Office of Management and Budget projects the national debt will soar to over $25 trillion.

"If Senate Republicans cannot use their leverage on the debt ceiling vote to achieve significant concessions, including a Balanced Budget Amendment, to turn the Ship of State around now, will assuredly sink into the Abyss in the not-so-distant future," Wilson warned.

Currently, the $14.2 trillion national debt already stands at 95.5 percent of the nation's $14.8 trillion Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Wilson said it was unclear at what percentage of debt-to-GDP that the debt becomes too large to refinance, but that "the warning signs are already there that we cannot even meet our current obligations honestly."

"Right now, we're currently meeting our financing obligations by having the Federal Reserve simply print money to buy debt. Anyone ever heard of the Weimar Republic? How'd that work out for them?" Wilson asked.

The Weimar Republic experienced hyperinflation in 1920's as it attempted to print money to honor its war debts and reparations, destabilizing the country and leading directly to its fall.

Pimco reports that in 2009, 80 percent of treasuries were purchased by the Federal Reserve, and in 2010, it had to buy 70 percent, bringing its current U.S. debt holdings to $1.3 trillion. "The Fed is the largest lender to the U.S. government in the world, more than China or Japan. When the Fed ends QE2 in June, it will likely keep a high water mark of $1.5 trillion in treasuries holdings. That means it will still be buying U.S. debt to aid in refinancing," Wilson explained.

"Republicans need to do a better job of explaining the fiscal catastrophe we face, and what will happen if the debt is allowed to become too large to even refinance," Wilson noted.

"If the GOP cannot articulate what will happen to this country, specifically, if Congress fails to act and the debt soars to over $25 trillion in a decade, it will undercut their case for real fiscal reform," Wilson explained. "Either the debt will become too large to service, or it can continue to grow forever with no danger. If members truly believe that indeed it can get too large, then Senate Republicans' time to act is now."

Wilson concluded, "This is not just about getting an up-or-down vote on a Balanced Budget Amendment. This is about actually making certain that the debt ceiling never needs to be increased again. Senator Rubio's stand is an example all members should emulate. He's trying to save his country before it's too late, and we applaud him for that."

Obama's Owner George Soros Making a Move to Control Food and Grain Production

George Soros Making a Move to Control Food and Grain Production

National Examiner

Financier and progressive activist George Soros is formulating a move to control food and grain production by purchasing grain elevators in late March in several parts of the United States through his subsidiary company Gavilon Grain. With some purchases made on March 29th, Soros will become the third largest grain company behind Cargill, and Archer-Daniels Midland.

With strong ties to the Obama administration, Soros now has both the economic, and political clout to begin consolidation of purchasing and shipping domestic agriculture around the world.

U.S. grain firm Gavilon Grain said on Thursday it will buy Union Elevator and Warehouse's 16 grain elevators in the Pacific Northwest , the company's second big purchase of U.S. grain facilities in the last six months.

The purchase of 16 elevators at 12 locations in eastern Washington will expand Gavilon's grain capacity by 8.4 mbu.

"The addition of Union Elevator's grain facilities and origination capabilities position us well to support the growing Pacific Northwest export wheat market and serve the Columbian Basin feed grain market," Greg Konsor, VP and GM of Gavilon Grain, said in a statement. The PNW is the No. 1 wheat export terminal in the United States.
- Reuters

When food brokers consolidate into just a few large companies controlling the majority of a market, then prices can be set not by supply and demand, but by corporate decisions and manipulation of supply. If the price for food is too low in the United States, then grain can be shipped to other markets for sale, causing then an artifical supply problem in the country that produced the grain itself.

With George Soros making this move to control food and grain distribution in the United States, and becoming the third largest grain company in the country, it will lead to the same results that we see in the energy markets as oil is controlled by a small group of corporations, and the price can be dictated by an artificial control over its supply.

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

Spooky dude getting spookier.

I wish the the piranhas would eat him. Or maybe a stake thru Georgie’s heart.He is really pure evil.

As radiation spreads into the food supply chain and japan needs to sell off American debt to pay for their disaster..he will make a move to skewer everyone

I hope the devil takes him home before it happens.

And this is why George and Media Matters is going after Fox and Glen Beck because, Glen Beck has been right on the money.

Soros is One of the Largest Owners of Farmland in South America

Billionaire George Soros is a Big Picture investor. Through shrewd observation and, when necessary, via manipulation of government operators, he is usually able to cash in on major trends. All indications are that food prices are heading higher based on upward price forces from both the demand and supply side. It turns out that, through a subsidiary, Soros is one of the largest owners of productive farmland in South America. This could be his greatest investment ever.
The company, Adecoagro, based in Luxembourg, but with extensive farm holdings in South America, is going public. Because it is going public, the details of the company and the Soros connection become clear.

Th IPO will consist of 28.54 million shares and is expected to be priced between $13 and $15 per share. The prospectus says the company believes that they "are one of the largest owners of productive farmland in South America”. As of September 30, 2010, the company says it owned 274,663 hectares (excluding sugarcane farms) of farmland in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.

Democrats Have Driven U.S. To The Brink of Bankruptcy and Instability by Rush Limbaugh ~ I agree!!!!

Rush Limbaugh today giving a strong indictment of The Democrat Party for what they have done to the United States since taking control of the House of Representatives in 2006. Between Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama, he describes a litany of disasters they have brought on the nation with their big Government, left-wing ideology and agenda. Limbaugh says flatly that “the Democrats have driven this nation to the brink of bankruptcy and instability.” He also said they are the greatest danger to the future of the country and the next generation.

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

The Democrats, those that are the Progressives ( communists which way out number from what I can tell the old Democrats of the past ) and the rino's have no ability to stand up top them nor do they want to. I agree with Rush!

Right now I have to say I am concerned about the next election. I know it is early but even so...... America along with all of us cannot take more years of obama's reign of terror and destruction.

Sen. James Inhofe Asks NATO Commander about Al-Qaeda among Libyan Rebels As US Paves Way To Arm Libyan Rebels

Sen. James Inhofe Asks NATO Commander about Al-Qaeda among Libyan Rebels

Sen. James Inhofe asking Adm. James Stavridis – NATO Supreme Allied Commander in Europe – about whether there are elements of Al-Qaeda among the Libyan Rebels we are assisting with military action. The Admiral said that is being looked at very closely, and he admitted there have been “flickers of Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah” among the rebels. But, Stavridis said by and large, they are “responsible men and women who are struggling against Gadhafi.”

Inhofe sugggested it would not have been a good idea to find out who they are before jumping in on their side with military action.

US paves way to arm Libyan rebels


London conference on Libya opens as rebels grow impatient for more help.

Hillary Clinton has paved the way for the United States to arm the Libyan rebels by declaring that the recent UN security council resolution relaxed an arms embargo on the country.

As Libya's opposition leaders called for the international community to arm them, the secretary of state indicated that the US was considering whether to meet their demands when she talked of a "work in progress".

The US indicated on Monday night that it had not ruled out arming the rebels, though it was assumed this would take some time because of a UN arms embargo which applies to all sides in Libya.

But Clinton made clear that UN security council resolution 1973, which allowed military strikes against Muammar Gaddafi's regime, relaxed the embargo. Speaking after the conference on Libya in London, Clinton said: "It is our interpretation that [resolution] 1973 amended or overrode the absolute prohibition of arms to anyone in Libya so that there could be legitimate transfer of arms if a country were to choose to do that. We have not made that decision at this time."

Clinton's remarks came after the Libyan Transitional National Council used the London conference to issue a plea to be armed.

Mahmoud Shammam, the council's head of media, told a press conference at the Foreign Office: "We asked everybody to help us in many ways. One of them is giving our youth some real weapons.

"If you look to the reports that you have from the streets of Libya or from the cities of Libya you will see that our people have very light arms. You can see that just regular cars are fighting with machine guns. We don't have arms at all, otherwise we finish Gaddafi in a few days. But we don't have arms. We ask for the political support more than we are asking for the arms. But if we get both that would be great."

Signs of a growing international support for arming the rebels was highlighted by Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor al-Thani, the prime minister of Qatar, who was the most senior Arab politician to attend the summit. Al-Thani, whose country is providing military aircraft to help patrol the no-fly zone over Libya, said: "We did not discuss [arming the rebels] – definitely [at the conference]. But our opinion is that we have to evaluate the air strikes after a while to see if it is effective to protect the people of Libya or not.

"At that time we – the international community – have to see what sort of measures [should be taken]. We are not talking about invading Libya. But we have to evaluate the situation because we cannot allow the people to suffer for so long. We have to find a way to stop this bloodshed."

The foreign secretary, William Hague, who chaired the conference, indicated that Britain may be prepared to interpret UN security resolution 1973 in the same way as Clinton. Until now, Britain has said it believes it would be illegal to arm any side in Libya. He said: "We did not discuss at the conference today arming the opposition … but this subject has been raised by the national council. But it is not part of any agreement today. The UK takes into account the UN security council resolutions on this. Those resolutions in our view apply to the whole of Libya, although it is consistent with UN security council resolution 1973 to give people aid in order to defend themselves in particular circumstances."

Clinton cautioned that no decision had yet been made on arming the rebels as she said the first priority was to provide financial support for the Transitional National Council.

"We have not made any decision about arming the rebels or providing any arms transfers. So there has not been any need to discuss that at this point. We did discuss non-lethal assistance. We discussed ways of trying to enable the Transitional National Council to meet a lot of their financial needs and how we can do that through the international community given the challenges that sanctions pose, but recognising that they are going to need funds to keep going."

Clinton had earlier warned that coalition military action in Libya will continue until Gaddafi complies with the terms of UN security council resolution 1973. "We have prevented a potential massacre," the secretary of state told the conference.

"This coalition military action will continue until Gaddafi fully complies with the terms of 1973, ceases his attacks on civilians, pulls his troops back from places they have forcibly entered and allows key services and humanitarian assistance to reach all civilians.

Clinton and Hague also indicated that the US and Britain accept that Gaddafi may be able to escape into exile.

Clinton said: "As the Arab League has said, it is obvious to everyone that Gaddafi has lost the legitimacy to lead. We believe he must go … he will have to make a decision and that decision, so far as we aware, has not yet been made … a political resolution could include him leaving the country."

Hague said: "We of course support the reference to the international criminal court. We are not engaged in the United Kingdom in looking for somewhere for him to go. That doesn't exclude others doing so."

The Qatari prime minister admitted that Arab countries are not making a big enough contribution to the military action. Al-Thani said: "I agree the Arab involvement is not so big or not so concrete. But at least there are some Arab countries participating physically and some Arab countries participating at the conference here in London. I hope it will increase. I hope the Arab League has in the future a mechanism to do these things. This is an internal Arab problem. Unfortunately we could not do it by ourselves."

David Cameron opened the conference with a warning that Gaddafi is still in "flagrant breach" of the UN resolution and is allowing civilians to bleed to death in the streets of Misrata.

Cameron said Gaddafi's behaviour in Misrata showed the need for military action, which had averted a massacre and saved Benghazi. The prime minister underlined his message by giving a vivid account of the battle in Misrata as he addressed more than 40 foreign ministers and representatives of international organisations gathered at Lancaster House.

He said: "Gaddafi is using snipers to shoot [the people of Misrata] down and let them bleed to death in the street. He has cut off food, water and electricity to starve them into submission. He continues to be in flagrant breach of the UN security council resolution. That is why there has been such widespread support amongst the Libyan people – and in the wider Arab world – for the military action we are taking. It has saved lives, and it is saving lives."

Cameron, who convened the conference as Nato prepared to assume command of the military campaign from the US, said the conference was designed to help create a peaceful Libya as he set out three goals for the meeting:

• Reaffirm the international community's commitment to UN security council resolution 1973, which allowed for "all necessary measures" to protect civilians in Libya. This has allowed for the imposition of a no-fly zone, the enforcement of an arms embargo and air strikes to protect civilians.

• Ensure that humanitarian aid is delivered to the Libyan people.

• Help the Libyan people plan for their future once the conflict is over. The prime minister announced that a contact group would be established to help monitor the transition. This will consist of the EU, the UN, the Arab League, the African Union, and the Organisation of the Islamic Conference.

Libya's Transitional National Council was consulted, though this was on an informal basis because countries such as Britain are unable to recognise it as the formal representative of Libya. Cameron, who met Mahmoud Jabril, the council's special envoy on Tuesday, hailed a "vision for a democratic Libya" set out by the council.

The prime minister reached out to the Arab world by making clear that rebuilding the symbols of Islam, destroyed in the recent fighting, would be at the heart of the reconstruction of Libya. "When the fighting is over, we will need to put right the damage that Gaddafi has inflicted. Repairing the hospitals ruined by shells, rebuilding the homes demolished by Gaddafi's tank rounds and restoring the mosques and minarets smashed by his barbarity."

Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary general, announced that his special envoy, Abdelilah Mohamed al-Khatib, would travel to Libya after the conference to talk to both sides. The secretary general indicated that the two sides were guilty of human rights abuses. "We continue to receive deeply disturbing reports about the lack of protection of civilians, including various abuses of human rights by the parties to the conflict," he said


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

So now we are going to provide weapons to Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood... how quaint.

We sure have fallen a long way from just a handful of years ago when we declared war on terrorism... now we are going to arm the primary terrorist organization.

Lets see now - are “we” about done filling out the “destroy America” checklist?

Barack Obama has now fired more Tomahawk Cruise Missiles than all other Nobel Peace Prize winners combined!

Our Marines from Camp LeJeune were sent over yesterday.

If you have the time there is a post from last year over at Atlas Shrugs blog about Muslilm Obama. I just watched two videos that are together a little past the half way down point of her post. The two videos together are when Obama was making his speech in Cairo and the images in the video are hard to take. I had to look away as I listened to his speech.

Past Ties Between Gadhafi, Farrakhan, Obama, U.S. Muslim Groups Raising Questions


Past ties between Gadhafi, Farrakhan, Obama, U.S. Muslim groups raising questions



As Barack Obama sought Monday to explain to the nation the U.S. military action in Libya which he authorized, past associations between Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi and U.S. Muslim organizations, some of which have been linked to Obama, are attracting attention.

Thus far mainstream political and media figures are not making an issue of those associations, but longtime observers of the Washington political scene are taking note.

In 2009, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) asked the Libyan ruler for what was estimated to be tens of millions of dollars to distribute one million copies of the Koran to Americans, particularly government officials.

"We hope for your noble generosity in taking this project under your wing, so you will be in the vanguard, as we have come to expect of you," CAIR executive director Nihad Awad told Gadhafi in a meeting in New York. "God willing, you will as you have promised us, be the first to take the lead in this project."

The meeting was said to have been one of several between leading American Muslims and Gadhafi. They included leaders of the Nation of Islam, with which Barack Obama was associated in the 1990s, specifically in assisting with the organization of the 1995 Million Man March.

The head of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, has attacked Obama for U.S. participation in the NATO assault on Libya.

On March 21, Awad acknowledged that CAIR solicited Gadhafi. But the American Muslim director said the Libyan ruler did not respond.

"We never received a penny from his group, from his government," Awad said.

Awad as well as two colleagues, CAIR chairman Larry Shaw and spokesman Ibrahim Hooper, met Gadhafi during his visit to the United Nations in September 2009. The three Americans called Gadhafi "the world Islamic popular leader" and then asked for Libyan funds to launch the Muslim Peace Foundation. One goal of the foundation was to distribute one million Korans throughout the United States in an effort to bolster the image of Islam.

Until 2007, Americans were prohibited from receiving money from Libya, which was on the State Department's list of terrorist sponsors. CAIR also sent a delegation to Saudi Arabia to solicit $50 million for the group.

"We want to assure you that Muslims in America are your brothers and supporters," Shaw, a southern state representative, was quoted as telling Gadhafi. "They share with you your interests and aspirations."

A minister and attorney has asserted that Farrakhan was a major influence on both Obama and the black community. E. W. Jackson, bishop of the Exodus Faith Ministries, cited Obama's role as organizer and "enthusiastic supporter" of the Nation of Islam leader during the so-called "Million Man March" in Washington in 1995.

"Obama clearly has Muslim sensibilities," Jackson, who does not claim a personal friendship with Obama, said. "He sees the world and Israel from a Muslim perspective. His construct of 'The Muslim World' is unique in modern diplomacy. It is said that only The Muslim Brotherhood and other radical elements of the religion use that concept. It is a call to unify Muslims around the world."

In 2004, Abdul Rahman Al Amoudi, founder of several American Muslim groups, was sentenced to 23 years for receiving money from Gadhafi as part of a plot to kill Saudi King Abdullah. During the 1990s, Al Amoudi served as an Islamic adviser to then-President Bill Clinton.


Malik Zulu Shabazz of the New Black Panther Party upset with ObamaThe other day I posted a video of Farakhan blasting Obama.

Nor are they likely to. Obama has more ties to terrorists than almost anyone in the US, yet the Media and Democrats ignore them.

Obama is supporting Libyan Rebels who have ties to Iran and Al Qaeda. Where is the outrage in our Congress? Where is the outrage from the American people. IMO, our military families and the families of those who sacrificed in Iraq and Afganistan better get an answer ASAP!

Obama’s Libya Policy, In Three Sentences

Libyan Islamic Jihad Terrorist Thug Qaddafi, today praised Obama calling him “My Son” adding, “We are content and happy if Obama can stay forever as President…” during his 1 hour 36 minute rambling diatribe to the United Nations today. ( this quote from Qaddafi is from September 23, 2009 )


by By Jim Geraghty

Obama’s speech included these three sentences, and it is revealing that no one within the White House found them contradictory:

“I made it clear that Gaddafi had lost the confidence of his people and the legitimacy to lead, and I said that he needed to step down from power.”

“Broadening our military mission to include regime change would be a mistake.”

“We will deny the regime arms, cut off its supply of cash, assist the opposition, and work with other nations to hasten the day when Gaddafi leaves power.”

He must step down. We are working to drive him from power. But we are not pursuing regime change.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott Met With Convicted Terrorist Supporter Ahmed Bedier Yesterday At The 3rd Annual Florida Muslim Capitol Day ~ Gov.Scott Should Have Said NO Way!

Vidoe is Tom Trento, the Executive Director of the Florida Security Council speaking about ................... Rick Scott, Florida Republican Governor met with admitted Arab revolutionary leader Ahmed Bedier during Muslim Day in Tallahassee Florida on Tuesday 29 March 2011.


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

It was the third annual Florida Muslim Capitol Day in Tallahassee organized by ex-Tampa CAIR director, Egyptian-born Ahmed Bedier, former spokesperson for convicted terror supporter Sami al Arian, and founder of United Voices for America (UVA). There were Florida National Guardsmen armed with sub-machine guns patrolling the courtyard of the Capitol Rotunda building.

Scott may have been under the influence of a Muslim sympathizer and noted conservative, Grover Norquist. Red-bearded Norquist was seen frequently on Governor Scott’s campaign bus during the 2010 gubernatorial election campaign in Florida.

Governor Scott chose to meet with Bedier and his UVA contingent while saying no to meeting with anti-Sharia activists organized by the newly formed TUW organization led by Tom Trento ( he is the man in the video above) of the Florida Security Council.

Gov. Scott did pose for a group picture, and a picture with Bedier who blocked the Governor’s exit. When the governor was asked by a TWU activist later why he made the appearance at the UVA event, he answered that he was just doing his job.

Muslim Bedier will clearly use the pictures as evidence of an endorsement by Governor Scott. Gov. Scott had better wise up and do it fast. Any time one gives in to these people in any way, they will USE it .

The Muslim Brotherhood may have won several Stealth Jihad victories across America in Washington, DC, Tallahassee – Florida’s State Capitol and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. started Sunday, March 27th with the launch of CNN’s “Unwelcome: Muslims Next Door” Soledad O’Brien’s “In America” documentary on alleged Muslim discrimination in Murfreesboro, Tennessee over the Islamic Center expansion project.

Besides The Enemies Of America In Our White House ~ DHS and FBI Say There Might Be Terrorists Among Us

Terrorists might be among us

The San Antonio Express-News

They could be the people on the bus seat across the aisle, or the neighbors: members of East African groups that a recently released government memorandum says are “ready to die for the cause.”

The FBI and Homeland Security Department don’t know where they all are. And it’s unclear if they know how many arrived.

But in a rare admission, a Justice Department memo and other documents obtained by the San Antonio Express-News say federal authorities know terror suspects are in this country and know who allegedly helped bring them here through Mexico and Texas: a Somali man in custody near San Antonio.

According to the news report, the FBI has been trying to untangle a web of contacts surrounding a man named Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane, 24, who has been in custody since 2008, and is considered a “national security threat.”

New documents “paint him as a facilitator of groups accused of funding terrorism. They also allege he smuggled potential terrorists here.” Some of the people he smuggled into the U.S. may still be roaming American streets.

Five of Dhakane’s clients are listed in the memo — Mohamded Ma’alin, Mohammed Ereg, aka “Idris,” Hassan Yare and two whose last names authorities didn’t know: Adani and Abirizak, aka “Al Qaeda.”

Three of them are known to have entered the U.S., according to the memo.

But, but, Obama and Janet told us....The Mexican border is more secure than it has ever been.” If or when there is another attack the blood will be on Obama and Nappy and the rest of the DEMOCRATS that kept that border porous.

The FBI and Homeland Security Department don’t know where they all are. And it’s unclear if they know how many arrived.

How about checking the mosques, the training camps, and CAIR.

Don't you just love how they have this news and then no photo from DHS and the FBI what the terrorists look like.

With all the Muslim training camps we have found out about and all the Muslims that obama has brought in, I would think there are a lot more terrorists in our country then this article talks about.

Besides the fact that Obama wants to destroy America,Obama and his administration is the most incompetent administration that has ever been.

Beauty With Brains (Sarah Palin) vs. The Beast America Hater (Obama ) ~ Sarah Talks to Greta Van Susteren About Obama’s Libya Speech

Palin: Obama "Did Not Make The Case For This Intervention"

“I think it was a profoundly disappointing speech because it proved that the Obama doctrine is still full of chaos and questions…Why in the world would our military might be used according to the UN and Arab League’s desires and NATO’s leadership in this skirmish or this war or whatever it is that Obama calls it?… “

"U.S. interests can't just mean validating some kind of post-American theory of intervention, wherein, we wait for the Arab League and the United Nations to tell us 'thumbs up, America you can go now and act' and get on the back of the bus and then we wait on NATO and wait for the French to lead us. That's not inspirational," Sarah Palin told FOX News last night.

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

Good for Sarah!

Greta has always been very fair and she certainly has been great with Sarah!

Obama made no case for military action in Libya being in the vital national interests of the United States.

Obama set forth a doctrine that seems to say that the United States is going to act militarily only in league with international coalitions and under the approval of the United Nations.

Obama said the continuing U.S. role will be limited, and that we will not go after Gadhafi himself – but will leave that to the people of Libya.

Coming Soon To A Military Base Newsstand: Magazine For Gay Soldiers

Coming Soon To A Military Base Newsstand: Magazine For Gay Soldiers

Underground network of 'over 2,900 LGBT military personnel' launches magazine to 'let all the gay, lesbian, bi, and trans members currently serving know that they are not alone'

Barack Obama signed the repeal of the Clinton era’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and that has cleared the way for gays to serve openly in the military. But with that has come something Washington likely never envisioned — a publication catered to currently-serving LGBT military members offered on military bases.

The magazine is launched by OutServe, a group that describes itself as an “underground network of over 2,900 LGBT military personnel,” and according to the group’s co-director, an active-duty Air Force officer who goes by the pseudonym JD Smith, one of the aims of the publication is to “let all the gay, lesbian, bi, and trans members currently serving know that they are not alone.”

The first edition of the magazine is available online and has a heavy focus on the repeal and its implementation. The first print edition will be available next month on newsstands at some military bases.

“Our goal is to have our next version available in print, at some of the larger military bases,” JD Smith said in a release. “Visibility is key. We are not about highlighting our differences, but demonstrating how LGBT troops are proud soldiers, sailors, airmen, Coasties, and Marines just like everyone else.”

Wag The Dog Obama vs. Defense Secretary Robert Gates

Obama versus Gates on Libya

Defense Secretary: Libya Did Not Pose Threat to U.S., Was Not 'Vital National Interest' to Intervene


On “This Week,” ABC News’ Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper asked Gates, “Do you think Libya posed an actual or imminent threat to the United States?”

“No, no,” Gates said in a joint appearance with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “It was not — it was not a vital national interest to the United States, but it was an interest and it was an interest for all of the reasons Secretary Clinton talked about.

Obama says America has an important strategic interest in Libya.

His speech transcript

"When are interests and values are at stake, we have a responsibility to act. That’s what’s happened in Libya in the course of these last six weeks.”

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

I am glad Gates did not check with obama first to get his talking points. Or maybe he did and just had to be his own man. He has disagreed with the jerk obama before and said what he felt.

No one who cared about their reputation would ever work for Obama. History will not be kind to Gates.

Not that Gadaffi doesn't need killing but I'm with Gates on this one that this military action against Libya has no clear basis on US security interests.

Remember before GW Bush went into Iraq, long before we all were reading about how horrible, vile and evil Saddam Hussein and his two sons were. Real sicko's!!! The rapes, murrders, so many things, all sicker then the next. That could have been called a humanitarian mission among the other things it was about, BUT sure as heck obama's wag the dog war is NOT a humanitarian mission.

Oval Office Traitor Obama on Illegal Aliens: We Don’t Want to Deport Them, “We Want Them To Succeed”

Obama on Illegal Aliens: We Don’t Want to Deport Them, “We Want Them To Succeed”

Obama Addresses Student's Question About Receiving Deportation Letters


Barack Obama on Monday told a student who has received a deportation notice that he does not want to deport her -- he wants people like her to succeeed.

The exchange happened during a town hall event sponsored by the Spanish-language television network Univision at a Washington, D.C., school.

A student, who appeared via Skype, asked: “My question for the president is, why [is the government] saying that deportations have stopped -- or the detention of many students like me, why is it that we are still receiving deportation letters like this one?”

Obama answered, “We have redesigned our enforcement practices under the law to make sure that we’re focusing primarily on criminals, and so our deportation of criminals are up about 70 percent. Our deportation of non-criminals are down, and that’s because we want to focus our resources on those folks who are destructive to the community.

“And for a young person like that young woman that we just spoke to who’s going to school, doing all the right things, we want them to succeed," Obama said.

Joe Biden's Staff Lock Journalist In Closet For Hours During A Fundraiser To Stop Him Talking To Guests ~ Guests Disgusted After Finding Out!

Powers snapped this image of the closet in which he was held and posted it online

Freedom of the press was stretched when VP Joe Biden's staff refused to let reporter Scott Powers, right, talk with guests at a fundraiser with Sen Bill Nelson

Biden's Staff Lock Journalist Incloset For Hours During A Fundraiser To Stop Him Talking To Guests

The White House website proudly says ‘President Obama is committed to creating the most open and accessible administration in American history.’

But try telling Vice President Joe Biden’s staff that, after they held a local reporter in a closet for hours after he was invited to cover a Florida political fundraiser because they did not want him talking with the guests.

As the unaware $500-a-head invitees dined on caprese crostini with oven-dried mozzarella and basil, rosemary flatbread with grapes honey and gorgonzola cheese, grilled chicken Caesar and garden vegetable wraps, veteran reporter Scott Powers was locked away.

The Orlando Sentinel reporter was ushered into the closet inside wealthy property developer Alan Ginsburg’s Winter Falls mansion, after being told that Joe Biden and Senator Bill Nelson had not yet arrived.

Powers told The Drudge Report: ‘When I'd stick my head out, they'd say, “Not yet. We'll let you know when you can come out.”’

After 90 minutes he was allowed out to hear Biden and Nelson speak for 35 minutes, before being taken back to the closet for the remainder of the event.

From inside his temporary prison Powers emailed his office from his cell phone: ‘Sounds like a nice party.’

Ms Alexander followed suit.
She said Power has accepted her 'unequivocal apology' made shortly after the fundraiser.

'This was the unfortunate mistake of an inexperienced staffer and the vice president's office has made sure it will never happen again,' she said.

She said pool reporters are usually given 'hotel rooms' when the Vice President speaks at private homes.

She explained that the closet was chosen because of its 'close proximity' to the room where Mr Biden was speaking, and that it had a table and chair where the reporter could work, as well as open space.

But she clarified: 'A hotel room, however, should not be a storage room'.

Some guests were shocked by the Vice President’s staff.

One emailed the paper saying: ‘I was in attendance at the Fundraiser and enjoyed a nice lunch.

‘If I had known there was a reporter stuffed in the closet, I would have been compelled to stand up and demand answers.

‘I would also like to know if this is actually legal to treat people like caged animals. I’m disgusted by these actions.’Florida state law says kidnapping entails ‘forcibly, secretly or by threat confining, abducting or imprisoning another person against her or his will and without lawful authority.’

Powers said of his treatment: ‘It was frustrating and annoying that I was not given a chance to do my job fully and properly.

‘This was an extreme, and extremely inappropriate way of handling the press… it was essentially a rude and uncomfortable way to treat a reporter.’

He attempted to play down his treatment calling it ‘hardly unusual or shocking’ and confirmed that he received an apology from Ginsburg.

But he said the Vice President’s staff emailed him an apology which ‘I found far less satisfying than Ginsburg’s.’

The incident is especially embarrassing for the administration because it comes at a time when the White House has been condemning the treatment of journalists trying to report in Libya.

Just ten days ago, President Obama’s spokesman Jay Carney told reporters: ‘journalists should be protected and allowed to do their work.’

The Vice President’s office did not respond to requests for comment.

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

The shredding of the Constitution continues.

Makes me want to ask the question "who was a guest that they did not want this reporter to see?" Or "What other attendees made speeches?"

So will this reporter be voting for obama ....very possibly for a second time????? Shame him if he does.

Dictator Obama's People Hillary Clinton and Robert Gates NOT Allowed To Go On The Most Popular FOX News To Discuss Libya

Is the White House playing favorites again with media outlets?

There has been a back-and-forth between Fox News and the White House ever since President Barack Obama took his oath in 2009. And the latest episode appears to have occurred on Sunday after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates made the rounds on the Sunday morning talk show circuit to discuss Libya, appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” NBC’s “Meet the Press,” and CBS’s “Face the Nation,” but not “Fox News Sunday.”

That drew a response from Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, following his interview with potential 2012 GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich.

“Of course we wanted to get the White House view on Libya,” Wallace said. “However, they chose to offer Secretary of State Clinton and Defense Secretary Gates to ABC, CBS and NBC, but not to Fox. Despite the fact that we routinely have more viewers than two of those Sunday shows, the Obama team felt no need to explain to the millions of you who watch this program and Fox News why they have sent U.S. servicemen and women into combat. We thought you’d like to know.”

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

It is amazing how afraid Obama is of FOX. Hahahahhaha

Too bad people that work in his administration are not allowed to think for themselves.

Thank you Chris Wallace and Fox News for having a spine and the courage to call out the White House.
We are becomming more and more like Russia.

US Officials: Libyan Operation Could Last Months

US officials: Libyan operation could last months

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S.-led military action in Libya has bolstered rebels fighting Moammar Gadhafi's forces, but the international operation could continue for months, the Obama administration says.

NATO's top decision-making body was to meet Sunday to expand its enforcement of the no-fly zone to include air strikes against Libyan ground targets.

The military progress follows deep criticism against Obama from lawmakers upset that the administration hadn't sought greater congressional input on Libya.

~ snipet ~

But asked on ABC's "This Week" if that would mean a U.S. military commitment until year's end, Gates said, "I don't think anybody knows the answer to that."

~ snipet ~

The lack of clarity on that question reflects a worry for lawmakers clamoring to hear fuller explanations from the administration on why the U.S. was embroiling itself in another Muslim conflict and what the ultimate goals of the intervention are.

~ snipet ~

Asked if the Libyan conflict posed a threat to the United States, Gates said it was "not a vital national interest" but he insisted that the situation nevertheless demanded U.S. involvement..

Clinton noted how the strife affects Europe's key interests, from oil to immigration, and that their concerns were important...

"When it comes to Libya, we started hearing from the U.K., France, Italy, other of our NATO allies," she added. "This was in their vital national interest."

Those themes will likely be taken up by Obama, who cited "significant success" in the war and defended the U.S. intervention as lawful and critical to save thousands of lives. In his weekend radio and Internet address, he noted that the U.S. cannot get involved in every world crisis, but said if Gadhafi was threatening a "bloodbath that could destabilize an entire region ... it's in our national interest to act. And it's our responsibility."


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

First it was: “Days, not weeks”, now it’s: “Months, not years”.......we all know what comes next....indefinitely??

But asked on ABC’s “This Week” if that would mean a U.S. military commitment until year’s end, Gates said, “I don’t think anybody knows the answer to that.”

Pity the American soldier and pray for him/her. Gates doesn’t know; Obummer doesn’t know. Meanwhile our troops are putting their lives on the line.

We have fallen to the point where we have the enemy in the White House. There is no confusion on that. His efforts are giving AlQaeda significant advantage in their objectives at America’s expense.

Here in America we need a regime change of our own.

Obama LIES Again In His Weekly Address ~ The TRUTH Is Bush Had MORE Coalition Partners In Iraq As Obama Has In Libya

Barack Obama told Americans in his Weekly Address that the kinetic military operation in Libya was the correct way to fight a war because the US has assistance from several allies unlike when Bush was in power.

“This is how the international community should work—more nations, not just the United States, bearing the responsibility and cost of upholding peace and security…”

Obama failed to mention that Bush had twice as many coalition partners in Iraq as the US has in Libya.

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

Never before has the White House and our Country been so defiled.

Viet Nam was to stop Communism from taking over Asia, this Libya war (oops, not war) doesn't even have a pretense of a national security issue for us. Vietnam could have been argued as national security...but Lybia???
Vietnam started out with the Gulf of Tonkin Resoluion that resulted from a North Vietnamese attack on some of our ships. We also had a defininte natinal security interest in not seeing that part of Asia turn communist.

The difference here is that Libya did nothing to attack us or challenge our vital interests.

Have you ever noticed Obama's speeches when he's talking about an ongoing issue and the actions he's taking at the given moment he never fails to add "In the past..." or "Under the last administration..." and criticizes the Republican President or the GOP on how they had dealt with that same particular problem / issue.

When Obama first became president, he referred to mistakes made "over the past eight years". As time went on, this became awkward, since his own track record became included in the 8-year span, while Bush's initial time in office dropped out of consideration. At this point, Obama started talking about problems "over the past 10 years".

Now Obama is in his third year. It's harder to make the allusion which he wants to make -- but he does so by now saying "in the past".

Energized Muslim Brotherhood In Libya Eyes A Prize

Energized Muslim Brotherhood In Libya Eyes A Prize


Dr. Abdulmonem Hresha knows first hand how Moammar Gadhafi's regime works. He says the seeds of his opposition were sown when he was age 10.

He and classmates were taken to witness the public execution of a political opponent of Gadhafi.

"They hung him up in front of thousands of small kids," Hresha said. "He did that to scare people."

Hresha, who taught physics at Tripoli University, later fled to Canada.

~snipet ~

The prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood now lives in London, and anticipates the group could become an important player in a post-Gadhafi environment.

As in Egypt and Tunisia, the Brotherhood in Libya has been energized by the sudden upheaval sweeping the Arab world.

~ snipet~

Despite years of repression, Hresha claims the Brotherhood still has thousands of members scattered across Libya, with chapters in almost every single town, including Sirte, Gadhafi's birthplace on the coast west of Tripoli.

In 2006, its leaders were released after reconciling with the Libyan regime. But now the Brotherhood is siding with the rebellion.

~ snipet ~

In February, as protests in Libya began, Yusuf al Qaradawi -- an Egyptian preacher in Qatar widely viewed as the Muslim Brotherhood's chief spiritual guide -- issued a fatwa or religious ruling obliging any Libyan soldier who had the opportunity to do so to assassinate the leader.

Al-Amin Bilhaj, a leading figure in the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood and the President of the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) recently traveled to Benghazi, the headquarters of the rebel movement, according to Hresha.

Other Brotherhood exiles have returned to help treat the wounded in hospitals, according to Kemal el Helbawy, the Egyptian founder of the British association.

~ snipet ~

But in the longer term, in a country where the political space has been dominated by Gadhafi for more than 40 years, the Brotherhood's organization and nationwide presence may afford it an advantage.

The West has nothing to fear from the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya, according to Hresha.

Hresha said the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood welcomes airstrikes in Libya, a startling turnaround for a movement that previously supported jihad by Iraqis against U.S. forces occupying Iraq.

"I salute and am very grateful to the Americans, French and British governments for stopping the killing," he said. "I will never forget this." Hresha said he hopes a post-Gadhafi Libya will be a close friend to the West.

~ snipet ~

Hresha, the long-time Brotherhood member, expects that to change. "We've been working secretly till this moment," he said.

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

The media code words for muslim brotherhood are that they are SO PEACEFUL and loving chaps.

Obama could announce he has them on speed dial in his blackberry and Wolf Blitzer would report it with glee like he should get another peace prize.

Obama May Supply Gaddafi Rebels With Weapons

US May Supply Gaddafi Rebels With Weapons

SKY News

Western diplomatic sources have confirmed to Sky News that the US is considering the legality of arming the Libyan rebels. One of the unintended consequences of United Nations' Resolution 1970 was to starve the rebels of the weapons they would need to take on Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.

It requires all UN members to "immediately take the necessary measures" to prevent the supply or sale of weapons to the Libyan government - with no exemption for anti-Gaddafi forces.

But Sky News now understands the US is looking at a legal framework to allow limited supplies of arms to the rebels, if they can prove they need them to defend themselves from attack.

Mark Kornblau, spokesman for US Ambassador Dr Susan Rice, confirmed it was a possibility "Resolutions 1970 and 1973, read together, neither specify nor preclude such an action," he said.

Britain and France are also reported to be considering the legal options. A diplomat from a member state participating in the coalition told Sky News the purpose of the resolution was clear. He said: "It authorises all necessary measures to protect civilians under threat of attack.

obama must think these rebels will be able to vote for him in the next election.

'Al-Qaeda snatched missiles' in Libya

'Al-Qaeda snatched missiles' in Libya

AFP from correspondents in Paris

AL-QAEDA'S offshoot in North Africa has snatched surface-to-air missiles from an arsenal in Libya during the civil strife there, Chad's President says.

Idriss Deby Itno did not say how many surface-to-air missiles were stolen, but told the African weekly Jeune Afrique that he was "100 per cent sure" of his assertion.

"The Islamists of al-Qaeda took advantage of the pillaging of arsenals in the rebel zone to acquire arms, including surface-to-air missiles, which were then smuggled into their sanctuaries in Tenere," a desert region of the Sahara that stretches from northeast Niger to western Chad, Deby said in the interview.

"This is very serious. AQIM ( al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb ) is becoming a genuine army, the best equipped in the region," he said.

His claim was echoed by officials in other countries in the region who said that they were worried that al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) might have acquired "heavy weapons", thanks to the insurrection.

"We have sure information. We are very worried for the sub-region," a Malian security source who did not want to be named said.

AQIM originated as an armed Islamist resistance movement to the secular Algerian government.

It now operates mainly in Algeria, Mauritania, Mali and Niger, where it has attacked military targets and taken civilian hostages, particularly Europeans, some of whom it has killed.

"We have the same information," about heavy weapons, including SAM 7 missiles, a military source from Niger said.

"It is very worrying. This overarming is a real danger for the whole zone," he added

"AQIM gets the weapons in two ways; people go and look for the arms in Libya to deliver them to AQIM in the Sahel, or AQIM elements go there themselves."

Elsewhere in the interview, Chad's president backed the assertion by his neighbour and erstwhile enemy Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi that the protests in Libya have been driven in part by al-Qaeda.

"There is a partial truth in what he says," Deby said.
"Up to what point? I don't know. But I am certain that AQIM took an active part in the uprising."

After years of tension between the two nations, which were at war during part of the 1980s, Deby has more recently maintained good relations with Gaddafi.

The Chadian leader described the international military intervention in Libya, launched a week ago by the United States, France and Britain, as a "hasty decision".

"It could have heavy consequences for the stability of the region and the spread of terrorism in Europe, the Mediterranean and the rest of Africa," he cautioned.

Deby denied assertions that mercenaries had been recruited in Chad to fight for Gaddafi, though some of the several thousand Chad nationals in Libya may have joined the fight "on their own".

Libyan Rebel Commander Admits His Fighters Have al-Qaeda Links

Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi admitted he had earlier fought against 'the foreign invasion' in Afghanistan Photo: AFP

Why is Obama helping Al-Qaeda in Libya?

Why is America helping terrorists who fought against the US in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Did Obama ask any of these questions before he rushed into war?

Libyan rebel commander admits his fighters have al-Qaeda links

Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi's regime.

In an interview with the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, Mr al-Hasidi admitted that he had recruited "around 25" men from the Derna area in eastern Libya to fight against coalition troops in Iraq. Some of them, he said, are "today are on the front lines in Adjabiya".

Mr al-Hasidi insisted his fighters "are patriots and good Muslims, not terrorists," but added that the "members of al-Qaeda are also good Muslims and are fighting against the invader".

His revelations came even as Idriss Deby Itno, Chad's president, said al-Qaeda had managed to pillage military arsenals in the Libyan rebel zone and acquired arms, "including surface-to-air missiles, which were then smuggled into their sanctuaries".

Mr al-Hasidi admitted he had earlier fought against "the foreign invasion" in Afghanistan, before being "captured in 2002 in Peshwar, in Pakistan". He was later handed over to the US, and then held in Libya before being released in 2008.

Earlier this month, al-Qaeda issued a call for supporters to back the Libyan rebellion, which it said would lead to the imposition of "the stage of Islam" in the country.

British Islamists have also backed the rebellion, with the former head of the banned al-Muhajiroun proclaiming that the call for "Islam, the Shariah and jihad from Libya" had "shaken the enemies of Islam and the Muslims more than the tsunami that Allah sent against their friends, the Japanese".

Gaddafi knowlingly released an Al Qaeda, al-Hasidi. Gaddafi’s son pushed release this Al Qaeda terrorist on the basis that they renounced terrorism

So Obama has committed our troops to fight for Al-Quieda .OMG This is one reason to confer with Congress, they have this information.

Wisconsin Law Now In Effect; Soetoro Violates His Oath; Republican Leadership Forgets Mandate Of We The People

Wisconsin Law Now In Effect; Soetoro Violates His Oath; Republican Leadership Forgets Mandate Of We The People

by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Last week a Wisconsin judge ordered a temporary restraining order blocking publication of the law recently passed by a majority of the Wisconsin legislature and signed by Governor Walker. The judge bowed to the 14 AWOL Democrats who fled the state to hide out in Illinois in hopes of averting the will of the majority to balance the budget deficit created by the preceding Democrat Administration.

Friday the law was published as required within ten days after the Governor signs any new law. The Court and the Union thugs will claim foul as the law goes into effect Saturday. No matter the fireworks from Union thugs, their hired peon demonstrators and the judge, the law will undoubtedly pass again after proper 24 hour notice of session should that be the court’s decision.

It remains to be seen whether the 14 AWOL Democrats will resort to their immature leftwing stunt to prevent another vote---and it really does not matter since the law will go into effect since the elected majority rules. Unions need to get with the program before their workers are replaced with qualified workers who are nonunion and dues money bound for socialist candidates in 2012 evaporates!

United States ‘President’ Barry Hussein Soetoro is being accused by his own Party members of violating the Constitution by committing our military to a conflict without the authorization of Congress as required by law. Even Dennis Kucinich (D) and other Democrats claim it is an impeachable offense.

How peculiar they latch on to this violation after ignoring Soetoro’s other impeachable if not treasonous offenses which include: forcing Obamacare through Congress with bribery against the wishes of the majority of American people without allowing members of Congress time to read the 2700 pages of Leftist crappola which degrades our healthcare to third world status and hastens national bankruptcy; Soetoro and his Democrat Party willfully hiding his birth origin in violation of Constitutional requirements; suing states for trying to secure their borders and enforce Federal immigration law which the administration is intentionally not enforcing; committing 2 billion dollars we do not have to offshore drilling in Brazil while blocking development of nuclear and fossil fuel resources at home.

Finally, the Republican leadership talks a good line but when the rubber meets the road their promise to cut the Federal budget and freeze the debt ceiling appear to be empty rhetoric---key promises upon which Republicans gained a House majority. Speaker Boehner had better organize his troops around the common sense of the Tea Party or risk losing their seats in 2012.

Survival of this nation is at stake and no rational patriot is going to allow these career politicians to continue their unaccountable and wasteful spending to satisfy Fedzilla’s addiction.


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

Our side has got to be strong, stronger then they may realize and any kind of weakness will cost our country big time. This is a good article by Bates.

I like Boehner a lot and I think as Speaker of the House he could be so awesome... could be is the key and sometimes he really is, I just want him to be consistent, I do wish he would see this is the one huge chance to get our country back from the communists, marxists progressives and there can be nothing less or it will be gone. Not only Boehner but all of our elected people on our side of the isle.

Obama is proud of how he put together the Libyan operation. A model of international cooperation. All the necessary paperwork. Arab League backing. A Security Council resolution. (Everything but a resolution from the Congress of the United States, a minor inconvenience for a citizen of the world.) It's war as designed by an Ivy League professor.

True, it took three weeks to put this together, during which time Moammar Gaddafi went from besieged, delusional (remember those youthful protesters on "hallucinogenic pills") thug losing support by the hour -- to resurgent tyrant who marshaled his forces, marched them to the gates of Benghazi and had the U.S. director of national intelligence predicting that "the regime will prevail."

But what is military initiative and opportunity compared with paper?

And what about that brilliant U.N. resolution?

-- Russia's Vladimir Putin is already calling the Libya operation a medieval crusade.

-- China is calling for a cease-fire in place -- which would completely undermine the allied effort by leaving Gaddafi in power, his people at his mercy and the country partitioned and condemned to ongoing civil war.

-- Brazil joined China in that call for a cease-fire. This just hours after Obama ended his fawning two-day Brazil visit. Another triumph of presidential personal diplomacy.

And how about NATO? Let's see. As of this writing, Britain wanted the operation to be led by NATO. France adamantly disagreed, citing Arab sensibilities. Germany wanted no part of anything, going so far as to pull four of its ships from NATO command in the Mediterranean. Italy hinted it might deny the allies the use of its air bases if NATO can't get its act together. France and Germany walked out of a NATO meeting on Monday, while Norway had planes in Crete ready to go but refused to let them fly until it had some idea who the hell is running the operation. And Turkey, whose prime minister four months ago proudly accepted the Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights, wanted NATO to stay out of this entirely.

And as for the United States, who knows what American policy is. Administration officials insist we are not trying to bring down Gaddafi, even as the president insists that he must go. Although on Tuesday Obama did add "unless he changes his approach." Approach, mind you.

In any case, for Obama, military objectives take a back seat to diplomatic appearances. The president is obsessed with pretending that we are not running the operation -- a dismaying expression of Obama's view that his country is so tainted by its various sins that it lacks the moral legitimacy to ... what? Save Third World people from massacre?

Obama seems equally obsessed with handing off the lead role. Hand off to whom? NATO? See above. The Arab League? You must be kidding. Or perhaps to "the international community," a fictional entity about which Obama speaks both incessantly and reverently.

Never modest about himself, Obama is supremely modest about his country. America should be merely "one of the partners among many," he said Monday. No primus inter pares for him. Even the Clinton administration spoke of America as the indispensable nation. And it remains so. Yet at a time when the world is hungry for America to lead -- no one has anything near our capabilities, experience and resources -- America is led by a man determined that it should not.

A man who dithers over parchment. Who starts a war from which he wants out right away. Good God. If you go to take Vienna, take Vienna. If you're not prepared to do so, better then to stay home and do nothing.

AFTER Sending In Your Sons and Daughters To Libya, Epic FAIL American Obama Will Address The USA Monday To Attempt To Explain ( more cliche 's and BS) His Decision Over Libya

Obama to address United States on Monday to explain his decisions over Libya conflict

Obama will address the nation about Libya at 730 pm MONDAY from National Defense University

Miami Herald

WASHINGTON -- To a nation and a Congress seeking answers, President Barack Obama on Monday will offer his most expansive explanation of the U.S. role in the Libyan war, delivering a speech that is expected to cover the path ahead and his rationale about the appropriate use of force.

Obama's 7:30 p.m. EDT speech, to be given from the National Defense University in Washington, comes as leading Republican lawmakers and some from his own party have pressed him for clarity about the goals and exit strategy of the United States. Obama and top U.S. security officials spent about an hour talking to lawmakers on Friday, with the president answering direct questions from critics.

For a president who was on a Latin American outreach trip when the U.N.-sanctioned military assault on the Libyan regime began, the speech offers him his best chance to explain the purpose and scope of the mission to a nation already weary of war. Obama has spoken about the matter since authorizing the use of force, but not in a setting as prominent as an evening speech, as he seeks to take command of the story.

~ snipet ~

The White House announcement of Monday's speech came after Obama's teleconference Friday with a bipartisan group of key members of Congress. The call came amid complaints on Capitol Hill that Obama was not adequately consulting about the intervention in Libya with Capitol Hill.

Obama reiterated the U.S. position that Gadhafi should leave power. ( NOTE here obama changes his mind once again ~ Wild Thing )

House Speaker John Boehner asked a series of questions and got direct answers from both the president and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen, the official said. The president also took questions from the Senate's top Republican, Mitch McConnell, and from other lawmakers.

After the call, a spokesman for Boehner said the speaker wants the Obama administration to do more to explain how the mission in Libya "is consistent with U.S. policy goals."

Obama also faced political pressure from his own party, with one prominent Democrat expressing reservations about the wisdom of continuing the military mission.

"I know the president carefully weighed all the options before taking this emergency action but now that our military has prevented an immediate disaster, I have very serious concerns about what this intervention means for our country in the coming weeks," Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., said.

Meanwhile, a Pentagon official said Friday that even as other nations begin taking a larger role in the international air assault mission in Libya, the Pentagon was considering adding Air Force gunships and other attack aircraft that are better suited for tangling with Libyan ground forces in contested urban areas like Misrata.


Wild Thing's comment.....

How he will make a war in Libya all about him I have no idea, but he will do just that.

What is to explain, Barack, you jackass? I want Gaddafi to hang for Lockerbie but he is not a threat to this nation since he voluntarily gave up his nuke program. Oh, humanitarian concerns? Hussein was responsible for 1.3 million deaths but that wasn’t enough of a humanitarian concern for you FREAK obama.

Possible speech will say or use:

combination of these words:
“Kenetic” “Humanitarian” “Liberation” “NATO allies” “peace” “self-determination” “enable” and “human rights”.

If I hadn’t intervened in Libya, it would have been a massacre! If I hadn’t intervened in our economy, it would be a real mess now.

"Let me be clear" ....this one causes my blood to boil, I swear I want someone to punch his lights out when I hear him say it and the attitude he delivers these words with. PUNCH HIS LIGHTS OUT TILL KINDGDOM COME! ~ Wild Thing

"Uh..uh, let me be clear. I, uh, humanitarian...coalition...had to act...not taking the lead...uh, Secretary Clinton...make no, Kaddafi, Hibachi...wrote a letter to Congress...uh, limited engagement...Bush's fault, Palin's fault, Sarkozy's fault...hope and change"

Keep in mind this is after......

AFTER he sent Hillary to do his speaking for him

AFTER he has already told the Media he is sending some 4,000 troops ( husbands, wives, sons, daughters, brothers etc.

First he had to get back from his being a traitor to our oil industry with his BS with Brazil, Soros and screwing our American oil industry.

Then of course he made the decision to speak about this WAR until Monday due to the NCAA viewing schedule.

Plus it will take all weekend to load the teleprompter with bullcrap.

Some reasons to be busy when he gives his speech:

Have to Color code your closet

Arrange your sock drawer

your driveway needs waxing

have to study for a blood test

your spice cabinet needs alphabetizing

new kitties or a new puppy that needs your attention

If you have kids, let the kids go at the tv screen with wipable coloured pens when Obama’s on, tell them to have at it and see what they can turn him into.

Massachusetts Democrat Rep.Michael Capuano Opposes Libya Raids Because "President Palin Might Invade Iran" ~ President Palin Now THAT Sounds GREAT!

Dem Rep Opposes Libya Raids Because 'President Palin Might Invade Iran'

HOST HAL SPARKS : By the way, I’ve said respectively there is a tremendous amount of positive debate going on on the left side of the aisle where meaningful people who really do have good intentions are having a conversation about the validity of Operation Odyssey Dawn and the you know action in Libya and on the right there just seems to be a clamor to be on the opposite side of the president regardless of circumstance no matter what.

[Rep Mike Capuano D-MA joined the show]

SPARKS : Give me your assessment of sort of where we are with Libya and where we need to be going.

CAPUANO: Well, for me, I believe in the Constitution and I think the Constitution requires the president to get the approval of Congress to take an act of war. I’m disappointed that the president didn’t come to Congress before hand. I’m an early and ardent supporter of the President, but that does not mean I have given him carte blanche. Nor would I give anyone carte blanche because he won’t be president forever and my fear is you know President Palin [disdain] might decide to invade Iran without [Sparks interrupts]

SPARKS: And use that same power.

CAPUANO: ha ha ha. And so for me I want to think that this is the right thing to do, but honestly all I know about the issue is what I have learned through the media and I think that’s an inappropriate way to go and I think the president I hope the president comes to Congress this week and number on explains it to us better, explains what his goals are, what he thinks we should be doing.

Why we are there as opposed to not in Sudan and not in Yemen? And I do think those arguments can be made, but nonetheless I thinks it’s incumbent on him to do it and I’d like to hear those discussions.

Rep. LTC Allen West on Libya: "Serious problems..."

Rep. Allen West talking about U.S. involvement in Libya. West said Obama waited to long to act in helping opposition rebel forces, allowing Gadhafi to seize the momentum. Having waited too long, West said there is now no clearly defined mission for what we are doing in Libya. Since Obama has said there will be no ground troops in Libya, it is unlikely Gadhafi will be forced from power any time soon. West said, “you are not going to protect civilians” or get rid og Gadhafi “from 30,000 ft. in the air.”

West does not favor use of ground troops in Libya, but doubts the current military action will be able to oust Gadhafi – meaning there is no clearly defined purpose for the action. West pointed out that if the purpose is to protect civilians, does that mean we will intervene in Yemen, Bahrain, etc.? He called what Obama has done “a dangerous precedent.”


TWO years ago, Barack Obama made this little dig on Bush during remarks to service members at the Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida in October 2009.

“I Promise I will never rush the decision to send you in harms way.”

Obama fails to grasp the gravity of going to war.

Washington Examiner

“I am completely mystified,” says former top Bush aide Karl Rove, who supports the Libya intervention, “that this administration, of all administrations, makes a decision on a Tuesday night and does not bother to call anybody in Congress until Friday morning, 90 minutes before the policy is going to be executed, to tell them what is going to happen. Can you imagine what would have happened if we had tried to do that? We’d have been barbecued!”

There’s also the question of why Obama did not explain his decision to the public in a forum that conveyed the gravity of the situation. After ordering troops into action, the president headed off to South America with his wife, daughters, mother-in-law, and mother-in-law’s friend in tow. There was no solemn, reasoned speech to explain why the U.S. was going to war.


When Bush was president angry Obama in 2007: Americans ‘Have a Right to Know’ When We Debate and Engage in Major Foreign Policy Actions

SENATOR OBAMA: "But the fact of the matter is that when we don’t talk to the American people, we’re debating the most important foreign policy issues that we face, and the American people have a right to know. It is not just Washington insiders that — are part of the debate that has to take place with respect to how we’re going to shift our foreign policy. This is a seminal question.

New Jersey Democrat Sen. Frank Lautenberg Speaking At Baby Killing Planned Parenthood Rally: "Republicans Don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution”

On March 22, 2011, Democrat Sen. Frank Lautenberg speaking at a Planned Parenthood event in New Jersey where he railed, stood with, and was applauded by, Planned Parenthood supporters and state lawmakers against Republicans and Tea Party supporters, actually saying:

“The Republicans in Congress claim they’re concerned about the budget balance, but it’s a disguise! It’s not true! It’s a lie! That’s not what they want. They want — they want other people not to be able to have their own opinions. They don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution! But we’ll give it to them anyway.”

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

I hope someone is keeping track of what these public figures are saying, for posterity & the history books.
Because students of history will want to know why what is surely going to happen happened.

They don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution! But we’ll give it to them anyway.


Lautenberg doesn't believe in the foundational philosophy of America - that all men were endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights and it is to secure these rights that governments are instituted among men.

I thought he was dead. Guess he just looked that way.

Obama : Libya fight is not war, it's "kinetic military action"

The Obama Administration is now calling the intervention in Libya- a kinetic military action.

Obama : Libya fight is not war, it's 'kinetic military action'.

Washington Examiner

In the last few days, Obama administration officials have frequently faced the question: Is the fighting in Libya a war? From military officers to White House spokesmen up to the president himself, the answer is no. But that leaves the question: What is it?

In a briefing on board Air Force One Wednesday, deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes took a crack at an answer. "I think what we are doing is enforcing a resolution that has a very clear set of goals, which is protecting the Libyan people, averting a humanitarian crisis, and setting up a no-fly zone," Rhodes said. "Obviously that involves kinetic military action, particularly on the front end."

Rhodes' words echoed a description by national security adviser Tom Donilon in a briefing with reporters two weeks ago as the administration contemplated action in Libya. "Military steps -- and they can be kinetic and non-kinetic, obviously the full range -- are not the only method by which we and the international community are pressuring Gadhafi," Donilon said.

Rhodes and Donilon are by no means alone. "Kinetic" is heard in a lot of descriptions of what's going on in Libya.

"As we are successful in suppressing the [Libyan] air defenses, the level of kinetic activity should decline," Defense Secretary Robert Gates said in a meeting with reporters in Moscow Tuesday.

In a briefing with reporters the same day from on board the USS Mount Whitney, Admiral Samuel Locklear, commander of Joint Task Force Odyssey Dawn, said, "The coalition brings together a wide array of capabilities that allow us to minimize the collateral damage when we have to take kinetic operations."

On Monday, General Carter Ham, head of U.S. Africa Command, said of the coalition forces, "We possess certainly a very significant kinetic capability."

And unnamed sources use it too. "In terms of the heavy kinetic portion of this military action, the president envisions it as lasting days, not weeks," an unnamed senior official told CNN Saturday.

Now, White House officials are referring to the war in Libya not as a war but as a "kinetic military action." As common as "kinetic" might be among those in government, it still seems likely to strike members of the public as a euphemism that allows the Obama administration to describe a war as something other than a war.

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

obama why don’t you kinetic yourself on out of here. Kinetic Military Action is a derivative of Obama’s Birth Certificate. It is so damn kinetic he can not find it.

EXCUSE ME FREAK OBAMA!!! But bullets are fired, bombs are dropped, missiles are launched and people die. Not to debate the rights or wrongs of this action but IT IS WAR! Then again, War has an objective. This doesn’t ... or does it?

sheesh! This kind of verbiage sounds alot like McNamara!!

Obama’s Libyan WAR Has Lowest Approval of Any Military Op Polled by Gallup in 4 Decades

Obama’s Libyan Intervention Has Lowest Approval of Any Military Op Polled by Gallup in 4 Decades

Barack Obama’s intervention in Libya’s civil war has not only failed to win the approval of a majority of the American people, according to a Gallup poll conducted Monday, it also earned the lowest public approval rating of any U.S. military operation polled by Gallup over the past four decades.

In fact, it was the only U.S. military intervention polled by Gallup that received less than majority approval from Americans.

“The 47% of Americans approving of the action against Libya is lower than what Gallup has found when asking about approval of other U.S. military campaigns in the past four decades.”

That compares to the 90 percent approval rating Americans gave President George W. Bush’s October 2001 U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, the 83 percent approval rating they gave President George H.W. Bush’s January 1993 bombing of military targets in Iraq, the 76 percent approval rating they gave President George W. Bush’s March 2003 invasion of Iraq, and the 71 percent approval rating they gave President Ronald Reagan’s March 1996 bombing of Libya, and the 66 percent approval rating they gave President Bill Clinton’s August 1998 missile strikes on Sudan and Afghanistan, according to the Gallup poll.

Before Obama’s intervention in Libya, the least popular U.S. military intervention polled by Gallup was President Clinton’s 1999 intervention in the Balkan conflict over Kosovo. In a survey conducted April 30 to May 2, 1999, only 51 percent of Americans approved of that military action.

Obama Increases Number Of Our Troops~ Over 4,000 U.S. Sailors, Marines Set Sail For Mediterranean

Over 4,000 U.S. Sailors, Marines Set Sail For Mediterranean

The United States has started the deployment of more than 4,000 marines and sailors to the Mediterranean Sea to support the ongoing military operation in Libya, the U.S. Navy news service said.

The decision to deploy servicemen from the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group (BATARG) and 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit was made "based on continuing urgent needs in Libya and the region," said the report, which was distributed on the DVIDS website.

"Amphibious ships are optimally suited for executing a wide range of missions, from humanitarian assistance to theater and maritime security operations," BATARG commander Capt. Steven J. Yoder was quoted as saying.

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

This is how obama does not send ground troops. The obama version.

Obama has not consulted Congress or anyone else other then his progressive inner circle.

Obama will also expect us to believe that he is doing this to “save” Libyan lives by destroying Libyan lives, while strengthening an opposition force that none of us have any idea what to name.

Obama has all the emotion and empathy of a reptile.

God help us and guard our troops!

Hillary States That NATO Agreed To Enforce The No-Fly Zone Over Libya But Not The Ground Attacks OBAMA Wants


NATO takes command of part of Libya operation

Los Angeles Times

NATO agreed has to take over part of the military operations against Libya — enforcement of the no-fly zone — after days of hard bargaining among its members. But attacks on the ground will continue to be run by the coalition led by the U.S., which has been anxious to give up the lead role.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who announced the NATO agreement late Thursday in Brussels, said the alliance operation would proceed in parallel with the bombing campaign carried out by coalition aircraft.

“At this moment there will still be a coalition operation and a NATO operation,” Fogh Rasmussen said. “We are considering whether NATO should take on the broader responsibility in accordance with the U.N. Security Council resolution, but that decision has not been reached yet.”

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

I just keep thinking about our troops being sent there.

Germany is ticked big time. And Gates has to be upset too, I wonder if and when Gates will resign.

OPERATION ODYSSEY DAWN....the UN name for the international military operation in Libya .. WHAT'S IN A NAME?

The name of the operation may well be an oracular warning about the consequences of US/NATO ground invasion of Libya. As Tony Blankley points out the word "Odyssey" is taken from the great Homeric poem about the ten year wanderings of the lost Greek hero Odysseus after the end of the ten year Trojan War. In other words, the word "Odyssey" may well be prophetic of a very long and painful war like the protracted conflict between Greeks and Trojans that lasted a decade before cunning Odysseus figured out how the Greeks could win.

Owner Of Obama, Soros Fingerprints on Libya Bombing

Soros Fingerprints on Libya Bombing

FOX News

By Aaron Klein

Philanthropist billionaire George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the global organization that promotes the military doctrine used by the Obama administration to justify the recent airstrikes targeting the regime of Moammar Gadhafi in Libya.

The activist who founded and coined the name of the doctrine, "Responsibility to Protect," sits on several key organizations alongside Soros.

Also, the Soros-funded global group that promotes Responsibility to Protect is closely tied to Samantha Power, the National Security Council special adviser to Obama on human rights.

Power has been a champion of the doctrine and is, herself, deeply tied to the doctrine's founder.

According to reports, Power was instrumental in convincing Obama to act against Libya.

The Responsibility to Protect doctrine has been described by its founders and proponents, including Soros, as promoting global governance while allowing the international community to penetrate a nation state's borders under certain conditions.

Regarding George Soros and his puppet Barack......

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.

An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

The traitor is the plague.”

Donald Trump Comments About Obama's Birth Certificate and Idiot Whoopie Says NO White Person Was Asked For Theirs ~ LOL Racist Liberal Thinking From Whoopie

Whoopi Goldberg and Donald Trump argue on 'The View'

The Star Ledger

After Joy Behar asked Trump if he was 'a birther,' Trump replied, "Why doesn't he show his birth certificate?"

Whoopi Goldberg quickly fumed and piped in, "Why should he have to?"

"Because I have to and everybody else has to, Whoopi," Trump darted back. He went on to say that he believed that Obama probably has a birth certificate and he should show it. Trump also said that he found it quite odd that nobody from the president's early years remembers him. "There's something on that birth certificate that he doesn't like," he added.

It eventually got to the point where everybody was talking over one another (as is the case on most editions of the show). Still, Trump attempted to keep his composure and argue his point.

"That's a terrible thing to say," Whoopi said. "That's the biggest pile of dog mess I've heard in ages. ...It's not 'cause he's black, is it?"

The Donald contended that it had "nothing to do with that."

"I've never heard of any white president being asked to show his birth certificate," Whoopi fumed. "When you become the president of the United States of America, you know that he's American. I'm sorry. That's just B.S."

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

Camp Lejeune Marines To Libya To Strike At Qadhafi Forces But Remember Liar in Chief Obama Had Said No Ground Troops~ Rack Up ANOTHER Obama LIE

Obama on Libya: U.S. will not deploy ground forces

“”I also want to be clear about what we will not be doing. The United States is not going to deploy ground troops into Libya...”

Camp Lejeune Marines To Libya To Strike At Qadhafi Forces


ONSLOW COUNTY -- We've seen Camp Lejuene Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan and now they are joining the fight against Libya.

About 2,200 Marines from the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit will take part in support operations based aboard USS Kearsarge at sea. Those support operations have thus far included air strikes and one rescue operation. The overall mission is to help end the violence directed at the Libyan people.

"In Libya right now they are doing exactly what we need them to do. They are doing what they are told and right now that's protecting Libyan people against Qadhafi forces," said Captain Timothy Patrick, a Marine with the 26th MEU.

UPDATE: Conditions set forth by the U.N. Security Council towards resolving the unrest in Libya included the removal of Libyan Leader Muammar al-Qadhafi’s forces from Ajdubiyah. These latest strikes by the MEU aimed at preserving the sanctity of the city and the safety of the civilians within it. In an effort to safeguard the Libyan populace and infrastructure in and around the city of Ajdabiyah from further attacks by regime forces, 26th MEU, as part of Joint Task Force Odyssey Dawn, launched a second round of strikes by AV-8B Harrier jump jets.

“Our primary concern was ensuring the people inside Ajdubiyah were safe from Qadhafi’s artillery and tanks,” said Col. Mark J. Desens, commanding officer of 26th MEU. “Everything we are seeing following these strikes indicates that his forces are now less capable of threatening the town than before.”

Patrick said that Marines from the 26th MEU are coming on the end of their deployment. They will be replaced with Marines from the 22nd MEU.

A press release from the 26th MEU reads, in part:

"Protecting the innocent and conducting combined operations are what we are designed to do, our forces are doing both as part of the U.S commitment to protect Libyan citizens."




Military Times

The Pentagon is sending an additional 400 Marines to join the amphibious assault ship Kearsarge near North Africa in response to the unrest in Libya, Pentagon officials said Tuesday.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates ordered the Kearsarge and the amphibious transport dock Ponce to move from the U.S. Central Command region into the Mediterranean Sea to provide the capability for evacuation or humanitarian aid.

“We are obviously looking at a lot of options and contingencies,” Gates said Tuesday at a Pentagon briefing.

Obama is sending Marines to Libya to protect the al qaeda fighters...Madness. Complete madness! Obama is turning our Marines into a bodyguard service for our enemies.

"Libyan people" is MSM-speak for "Al Qaeda"

The UN sanctioned it... so the UN is basically controlling our military.

“Al Qaida commander backs Libyan rebels in message”

Jerusalem Post

Abu Yahya al-Libi urges anti-Gaddafi forces not to retreat; reports of mutiny among Gaddafi forces slowing attack on rebel-held Misrata.

A senior member of al Qaida urged Libyan rebels to continue their fight against Muammar Gaddafi and warned of the consequences of defeat, in a videotaped message posted on Jihadi websites, the Qatar-based Gulf News reported on Sunday.

The message from Libya native, Abu Yahya al-Libi, marked the first time a top ranked al Qaida commander had commented on the uprising in Libya.

Islam Follower Bombs Bus Stop In Jerusalem, 1 Killed and 31 Injured ~ Jew Hater Muslim Obama Uses This To Bash Israelis

Bomb Explodes Near Jerusalem Bus Stop; At Least 31 People Injured

Palestinian terrorist blew up a bomb in Jerusalem that killed one and injured thirty.

A terrorist attack has struck the Jerusalem bus station: At least 25 people were hurt and one woman was killed after an explosive device was detonated in a phone booth near the Convention Center.

Statement by obama on Bombing in Jerusalem

“I condemn in the strongest possible terms the bombing in Jerusalem today, as well as the rockets and mortars fired from Gaza in recent days. Together with the American people, I offer my deepest condolences for those injured or killed. There is never any possible justification for terrorism. The United States calls on the groups responsible to end these attacks at once and we underscore that Israel, like all nations, has a right to self-defense. We also express our deepest condolences for the deaths of Palestinian civilians in Gaza yesterday. We stress the importance of calm and urge all parties to do everything in their power to prevent further violence and civilian casualties.”

Sarah Palin: "Why Is It That the US Often Tells Israel That They Need to Back Off?"

Sarah Palin: “President Obama was inappropriate to intervene in a zoning issue in Israel. Let Israel decide their zoning issues themselves… I would have taken the opposite approach by the way.”

Sarah Palin on the Palestinians: Why is it that too often in the past that the US government has told Israel that they’re the ones, the Jewish community, that they need to back up or there will never be peace? They need to keep conceding. Why aren’t we putting our foot down with the other side and telling the Palestinians if you’re serious about peace quit the shellacking and the shelling, quit the bombing of innocent Israelis? Look at the young Israeli family that was slaughtered in their house a week or two ago. Look at today the bombing of those innocents at a bus station in Jerusalem. No we need to be strong.

Greta Van Susteren: You’d take a harder line?

Sarah Palin: I would take a harder line.


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

I love this interview with Sarah. Can you imagine if all of our elected leaders spoke this strongly for Israel and against the terrorists. WOW It would be like added ammo for our troops to be backed like that. And for Israel too, to have a friend that stands so strong by Israel's side.

I pray so much that someone strong will run for president, like Sarah, Allen West .....someone that knows our country is on the brink of no return as we know it if the rino's and left stay in power.

Eric Cantor Slams Obama on Response to Jerusalem Terror Attack ~ Thank you Eric Cantor!!!!!

Eric Cantor Slams Obama on Response to Jerusalem Terror Attack

At The Hill, "After bombing, Cantor hits Obama admin. handling of Israel."

Also, at Israel Matzav, "Cantor statement on suicide bombing nails Obama."

And from the Office of Rep. Eric Cantor, "Leader Cantor's Statement on Violence in Israel":

“Today’s bombing in Jerusalem is another chilling reminder of the obstacles Israel faces in its quest to live in peace with its neighbors. Israel is a true friend to the United States and a vital strategic ally in an unstable region. In the face of unremitting terror, Israel can count on the continued support of the United States as exercises its right to defend its people.

“Within the past two weeks, Palestinian terrorists in Gaza have launched dozens of unprovoked rocket attacks at innocent Israelis, while in the West Bank a terrorist brutally murdered a family as they slept in their home. These attacks must not be downplayed as mere episodes in a game of tit-for-tat between Israelis and Palestinians. There is absolutely no justification for deliberate and deadly attacks on innocent civilians.

“This kind of violence does not emerge in a vacuum; it is incubated through education and nurtured by popular culture. The sooner the world comes to grips with this reality, the sooner that there will be peace in the region. That’s why we must use the recent attacks to address the root cause of this violence: anti-Israel incitement in Palestinian mosques, schools and media – and the blanket refusal on the part of the Palestinians to accept Israel’s right to exist that it has created.

“The Administration has called on Israel to make sweeping concessions that I believe will endanger its security, but it doesn’t seem to demand similar from the Palestinians. That’s why I support bipartisan efforts in the House and Senate that call on the White House to put an end to anti-Israel incitement in the Palestinian territories. No matter how much we desire Mideast peace, it will remain a pipe dream so long as Palestinian culture makes martyrs of terrorists who target innocents.”

Good for Eric!

obama is president of the wrong country. He belongs in some muslim country and I will go further and say NOT as president either. He is NOT a leader, he is a screw up, a distroyer, a divider, a limp wristed racist, that I bet we couldn't even give him away even if we paid someone or some country to take him.....I doubt any country would want him.

Uncertain Trumpet! by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

Uncertain Trumpet!

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

Has there ever been a more incompetent or in the alternative intentionally destructive U.S. Administration? There was Carter with his merry brood of hillbillies who out of sheer stupidity brought new meaning to the word “incompetent” to Government. But Carter was otherwise harmless, Obama’s is intentional and intended to diminish the U.S in the world community. This is amply illustrated by the international mess in Libya as one more indicator of the Obama Administration’s attack upon no, not Afghanistan, Iraq, or Libya, rather in the grand scheme of Obama’s “transparent” vision, it is an attack upon the United States.

Despite the combined support from the leftist media most Americans are savvy enough to see through Obama’s abject lack of managerial and leadership skills. That noted, one has to give the “devil” credit where it is due: he does talk a lot, albeit simultaneously out of both sides of his mouth. The most recent example is his repeated calls for Gaddafi to step aside, that Gaddafi had lost legitimacy with his own people, that he needed to go, and etc.

After having been shamed and dragged “kicking and screaming” into agreeing to impose a “no fly” zone over large parts of Libya, which is really more like preparatory fire incident to a ground invasion, Obama is now eager to abandon U.S. leadership of the effort. Adding fuel to the fire is a Coalition that from all appearances is in disarray: with France declaring that they are not at war; Germany pulling its forces from NATO; Libyan rebels on the run; Marines are reported to be on the way to rescue Libyan civilians, while Obama unequivocally states that there will be no ground troops, no matter what the outcome.

From reports, Obama is trying to do something with the Allies, although it isn’t clear just what that would be; Allies are at each other’s throats and the list goes on! Uncertain Trumpet!? For goodness sake, let a Marine Corporal, well make it a PFC take charge, he would do a better job!

Obama dithered for weeks while ostensible, freedom-seeking, al Qaeda supported Libyans protested then took up arms against Gaddafi’s terrorist regime. Isn’t it ironic that in this instance it may well be one terrorist group against another and that couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people. Let them work out their own destiny without spending limited U.S. resources, they are going to hate the U.S. anyway, no matter what the outcome.

Given the circumstances, Libyans had the right to expect support against Gaddafi given Obama’s backstabbing of Egypt’s Mubarak, his encouragement of the rebels in Tunisia and his admonitions to the Saudi’s to ease the economic strain on their own people. But, having all but kissed their shoes during his “world apology tour,” Obama is now in the dubious position of seeking Gaddafi’s overthrow, by “diplomatic” and other non-violent means; yes, of course; the world trembles when Hillary speaks.

One cannot imagine what U.S. aircrews are doing or why they are involved if their underlying purpose is not to facilitate toppling of, or bringing about Gaddafi’s demise. Unfortunately, the present well executed attacks by U.S. forces and Allies, have the earmarks of an international relations debacle on its way to happen.

Obama’s passive aggressive, “if they need me attitude” dating back to the financial crisis of 2008, his encouraging Congress come up with the economically disastrous “Stimulus Package,” his repeated statements that have been aimed at diminishing U.S. preeminence in the world, and this present, “I can handle this on the fly” attitude about Libya, are all vintage Obama. Then combine that with leaving Congress out of the loop, which in the rarest of moments prompts one to agree with Congressperson Kucinich, one can see Obama’s innate dictatorial penchant beginning to emerge.

Yet, it was Obama who according to the Boston Globe in 2007 told Americans: “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”(as though he give one whit about the Constitution.)

Likewise, in an interview with Hardball, “If he gives authorization to war without congressional approval, I will make it my business to impeach him,” was then Senator Biden speaking of G.W. Bush. Of course anyone who knows anything knows that Biden was (and is) as full of bovine scatology then as he is now since it is the House of Representatives that impeaches.

But alas, Administration “spinmeisters” pour the swill, (or is it Kool-Aid?) for the media that attacks are to avoid genocide as happened in Rwanda during the Clinton Administration. But that does not answer the question, “where was he for the weeks leading up to this last minute decision?” (Oh, I get it, everyone missed it, he wanted to surprise Gaddafi.) But Obama is out of character as far as his Muslim supporters are concerned by bombing a nation where the “religion of peace” rules with a dictator’s fist. Louis Farrakhan, grand leader of the Nation of Islam made his anger clear when he asked Obama, “who the hell do you think you are?”

A parting shot: Obama’s circus is embarrassing if not dangerous to the U.S. and makes G.W. Bush come across as a consummate, patriotic professional but, let there be no doubt, this too is Bush’s fault.

Semper Fidelis


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

Amazing how these politicians make statements then think they won't be remembered. Especially with the internet where everything is out there someplace that was said. Biden's comment about Bush and impeachment, obama's as well about war etc. Good one Col. Pappas for bringing these up in this article.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Community Organizer Obama Confused On His Goal For Gaddafi ~ Has To Go, No He Can Stay

Jimmy Durante 'Did You Ever Have the Feeling '


Monday Barack Obama told reporters in Chile that Gaddafi needs to go

BUT WAIT....... Because on TUESDAY ( the following day....yesterday) Obama told reporters that Gaddafi can stay.

Obama says Qadhafi could stay

Obama indicated on Tuesday that Muammar Qadhafi may still have an opportunity to “change his approach” and put in place “significant reforms” in the Libyan government.


Rather than speak to the American people or Congress directly on his decision to establish a no-fly zone over Libya, Obama sent a letter to Congress explaining his actions. Here are the choicest quotes from the letter.

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973 authorized Member States, under Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter, to take all necessary measures to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack in Libya, including the establishment and enforcement of a "no-fly zone" in the airspace of Libya...

Accordingly, U.S. forces have targeted the Qadhafi regime's air defense systems, command and control structures, and other capabilities of Qadhafi's armed forces used to attack civilians and civilian populated areas. We will seek a rapid, but responsible, transition of operations to coalition, regional, or international organizations that are postured to continue activities as may be necessary to realize the objectives of U.N. Security Council Resolutions 1970 and 1973.

For these purposes, I have directed these actions, which are in the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States, pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct U.S. foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive.

I am providing this report as part of my efforts to keep the Congress fully informed, consistent with the War Powers Resolution. I appreciate the support of the Congress in this action.


Trying to determine what Barack Obama’s end goal is on Libya has some scratching their heads. While the president has said Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi must relinquish power, his administration has also sent clear signals that regime change is not the aim of the military campaign in Libya.

On Monday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Brit Hume explained why this is a problem and how with the confusion failure is a potential outcome.

“As he explained it today, President Obama’s policy toward Libya consists of two apparently unconnected parts,” Hume said. “One part is regime change – getting Gaddafi out. But those bombs over Benghazi and elsewhere including the British missile attack on Gaddafi’s own compound are not about that. No, they are for the sole purpose of preventing the humanitarian calamity that Gaddafi seemed ready to unleash last week. It was apparently OK for Gaddafi’s force to crush the rebels but just not as savagely as he threatened. As for getting him out of power – that will be left to what they called wide range of other tools to isolate and pressure him in to stepping down...more at the DC


Iranian regime leader Ayatollah Khamenei blasted Barack Obama today saying, “We don’t know if he is mindful of what he’s uttering.”

Fars News

Ayatollah Khamenei said Mubarak’s fate should be a lesson for US-backed rulers and “they must know that when their expiration date arrives and they lose their usefulness they will be thrown away like a used tissue”.

“The real hypocrite is the US. With regards to Egypt they said we are with the [Egyptian] nation but they lied. They cooperated with the nation’s enemy until the very last moment. They said the same thing about Tunis, that we support the people. Now the US president sends a message to the Iranian people that we support you,” the Leader said, referring to US President Barack Obama’s message to the Iranian people on the occasion of Nowrouz.

Ridiculing Obama’s comparison of huge anti-government rallies at Cairo’s Al-tahrir (liberation) square and a massive pro-government rally at Iran’s Azadi (freedom) square on February 11, marking the 32nd anniversary of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, the Leader said, Yes, every year Iranians gather at [Tehran's] Azadi Square on the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution and their main slogan has remained ‘death to America,’ commonly referring to the US government.

The Leader then went on to add, “We don’t know whether the current US president is mindful of what he is uttering, or if he is unconscious and confused.”

What a mess obama is, he really is incapable of leading in any area. I am grateful he is ticking off a lot of the democrats.

Who Is In Charge? Germans Pull Forces Out of NATO as Libyan Coalition Falls Apart

Libyan rebels retreat from the outskirts of the city of Ajdabiya, south of Benghazi. Nato members are also fighting over who will take command of allied forces

Who's in charge? Germans pull forces out of NATO as Libyan coalition falls apart


* Tensions with Britain as Gates rebukes UK government over suggestion Gaddafi could be assassinated

* French propose a new political 'committee' to oversee operations

* Germany pulls equipment out of NATO coalition over disagreement over campaign's direction

* Italians accuse French of backing NATO in exchange for oil contracts

* No-fly zone called into question after first wave of strikes 'neutralises' Libyan military machine

* U.K. ministers say war could last '30 years'

* Italy to 'take back control' of bases used by allies unless NATO leadership put in charge of the mission

* Russians tell U.S. to stop bombing in order to protect civilians - calls bombing a 'crusade'

Deep divisions between allied forces currently bombing Libya worsened today as the German military announced it was pulling forces out of NATO over continued disagreement on who will lead the campaign.

A German military spokesman said it was recalling two frigates and AWACS surveillance plane crews from the Mediterranean, after fears they would be drawn into the conflict if NATO takes over control from the U.S.

The infighting comes as a heated meeting of NATO ambassadors yesterday failed to resolve whether the 28-nation alliance should run the operation to enforce a U.N.-mandated no-fly zone, diplomats said.

Yesterday a war of words erupted between the U.S. and Britain after the U.K. government claimed Muammar Gaddafi is a legitimate target for assassination.

U.K. government officials said killing the Libyan leader would be legal if it prevented civilian deaths as laid out in a U.N. resolution.

But U.S. defence secretary Robert Gates hit back at the suggestion, saying it would be 'unwise' to target the Libyan leader adding cryptically that the bombing campaign should stick to the 'U.N. mandate'.

Barack Obama, seeking to avoid getting bogged down in a war in another Muslim country, said on Monday Washington would cede control of operations against Muammar Gaddafi's forces within days, handing the reins over to NATO.

But Germany and European allies remain unwilling to have NATO take on a military operation that theoretically has nothing to do with the defence of Europe.

Today the German defence ministry announced Berlin had pulled out of any military operations in the Mediterranean.
A ministry spokesman said two frigates and two other ships with a crew of 550 would be reverted to German command.

Some 60 to 70 German troops participating in NATO-operated AWACS surveillance operations in the Mediterranean would also be withdrawn, according to the ministry.

Berlin isn't participating in the operation to impose a no-fly zone in Libya and abstained on the U.N. resolution authorising it.

France, which launched the initial air strikes on Libya on Saturday, has argued against giving the U.S.-led NATO political control over an operation in an Arab country, while Turkey has called for limits to any alliance involvement.

In a bid to halt the embarrassing bickering, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe today proposed a new war committee to oversee operations.

The new body, Mr Juppe said, would bring together foreign ministers of participating states - such as Britain, France and the U.S. - as well as the Arab League.

Meanwhile the head of the Italian Senate's defence affairs committee, Gianpiero Cantoni, said the original French anti-NATO stance was motivated by a desire to secure oil contracts with a future Libyan government.

Some allies are even questioning whether a no-fly zone is still necessary, given the damage already done by air strikes to Gaddafi's military capabilities.

Speaking about yesterday's hastily arranged meeting of NATO allies, one diplomat said: 'The meeting became a little bit emotional,' before adding that France had argued that the coalition led by Britain, the United States and France should retain political control of the mission, with NATO providing operational support, including command-and-control capabilities.

'Others are saying NATO should have command or no role at all and that it doesn't make sense for NATO to play a subsidiary role,' the diplomat added.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu suggested that air strikes launched after a meeting in Paris hosted by France on Saturday had gone beyond what had been sanctioned by a U.N. Security Council resolution.

'There are U.N. decisions and these decisions clearly have a defined framework. A NATO operation which goes outside this framework cannot be legitimised,' he told news channel CNN Turk.

Adding pressure to the already fractured alliance, Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini has also reiterated a warning that Italy would take back control of airbases it has authorised for use by allies for operations over Libya unless a NATO coordination structure was agreed.

In a shock admission, U.K. ministers have admitted the intervention in Libya could last for up to '30 years'.
Asked for an estimate, British Armed Forces Minister Nick Harvey said: 'How long is a piece of string? We don't know how long this is going to go on.

'We don't know if this is going to result in a stalemate. We don't know if his capabilities are going to be degraded quickly. Ask me again in a week.'

In the U.S., Obama has made it clear he wants no part of any leadership role in Libya.

President Obama has already been criticised for continuing with a tour of Latin America as the military operation over Libya began. And yesterday he insisted again that while Gaddafi must go, the U.S. is not prepared to remove him by force, but merely to enforce the no-fly zone.

Even that hesitant stance, which has already earned him the title of the Great Vacillator, left him criticised for not seeking proper approval from Congress before sending the American military in.

And after reports emerged that Gaddafi's son had been killed in a kamikaze strike yesterday, fresh questions over what exactly the U.S. intends to achieve in Libya emerged.

With Turkey digging its heels in and the Arab League suspicious, it has been pointed out that Mr Obama has fewer coalition partners in Libya than George Bush did at the start of the Iraq war.

He was criticised by both Republicans and Democrats over his decision to commit the U.S. military before going to Congress.

Representatives Jerrold Nadler of New York, Barbara Lee of California, Michael Capuano of Massachusetts, Senators Richard Lugar of Indiana and Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Representative Roscoe Bartlett of Maryland all complained that Mr Obama had exceeded his constitutional authority by authorizing the attack without Congressional permission.

The President hit back in a two-page letter to Congress and again reiterated his claim that while Gaddafi must go, the U.S. was only in Libya to enforce the no-fly zone for the protection of civilians.

France has already taken a leading role in the conflict, with President Nicolas Sarkozy hosting a summit in Paris over the weekend and French bombers being the first to enforce the no-fly zone.

Libya another community obama can’t organize.

Yet ANOTHER failure for The One. Actually this is huge.

Whoever heard of a coalition falling apart after what, five days? LOL

Reagan brought down the Warsaw Pact.

Obama will bring down NATO.

If it’s falling apart this fast it means it wasn’t put together very well. You can’t just throw these things together.

This feels like a Marx Brothers film or something. Here they are all fighting with each other, no one and everyone wants to be the boss. Obama has no clue how to lead and these leaders are not stupid they know obama could have cancelled his trip with so much going on.

I can only imagine how the other countries speak of obama behind closed doors and no live mic. He has done tremendous damage to our country within and in the world.

Remember when we used to have a leader in our White House???? Yes that was such a great feeling.

Gadhafi is coming out of this smelling like a rose... Wow I just cannot believe what a complete you know what this is. This intervention, what...... put together over lunch and a few pencils/napkins? Obama just said ok, and didn’t even bother to mention it to America? Totally insane, hope it costs Obama any slim hope of being elected.

Like Carter, Obama is making a huge mess out of foreign policy.

13 Illegal Immigrants Arrested in California Wearing U.S. Marine Uniforms

13 Illegal Immigrants Arrested in California Wearing U.S. Marine Uniforms

FOX News

Border Patrol agents recently arrested 13 illegal immigrants disguised as U.S. Marines and riding in a fake military van, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday.

The illegal immigrants were clad in Marine uniforms when they were apprehended at the Campo Border Patrol Westbound I-8 checkpoint at 11 p.m. on March 14 near Pine Valley, Calif., border officials said. Two U.S. citizens in the van also were arrested.

After the suspicious white van was subjected to secondary inspection, it was determined that the driver of the vehicle and its front seat passenger were U.S. citizens who were attempting to smuggle 13 illegal immigrants into the United States. All of the vehicle's occupants wore U.S. Marine uniforms, reportedly emblazoned with the name "Perez."

"This effort is an example of the lengths smugglers will go to avoid detection, and the skilled and effective police work and vigilance displayed everyday by Customs and Border Protection personnel," the agency said in a written statement.

The van used in the smuggling attempt, according to California's El Centro Border Intelligence Center, was a privately owned vehicle registered out of Yucca Valley, Calif., and was bearing stolen government plates that had been defaced. The center digit -- 0 -- was altered to read as an 8. Further research through multiple government agencies determined that the plate belonged to a one-ton cargo van registered to the U.S. Marine Corps.

The military referred inquiries back to Customs and Border Protection.

The van entered into the United States via Mexicali, Mexico, and proceeded to Calexico, Calif., where the U.S. Marine uniforms were donned, according to Homeland Security Today.

The Campo Border Station was constructed in June 2008 and is located roughly 28 miles east of San Diego Sector Headquarters in rural East San Diego County. It is responsible for securing approximately 13.1 linear miles of the U.S.-Mexico border and 417 square miles of surrounding territory. An estimated 7,000 vehicles pass through its two checkpoints daily, according to its website.


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

I wonder how many times have they run this scheme and gotten away with it? Then I would also like to know, what was their true motive for dressing in Marine Uniforms? What if terrorists did this to get into our country. Just to sneak into the country for some other more dangerous plot.

Awesome Video and Open Letter From Offshore Marine Service Association (OMSA) To Obama The KILLER of America's Oil Industry

The Offshore Marine Service Association (OMSA), put together the following video to explain how the de facto moratorium against offshore drilling is killing the American economy and driving up oil and gas prices. OMSA represents the companies that provide supplies and services to the oil rigs in the Gulf. They are really hurting, as they watch drill equipment leave the Gulf instead of waiting out the drilling moratorium.

Here is OMSA’s Open Letter to Barack Obama:

February 17, 2011

The President
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

On behalf of the tens of thousands of offshore marine service employees and their families, we are writing to protest your war on domestic energy exploration and development and its devastating impact on Americans. Lift your de facto moratorium on oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Let Americans get back to work. We’ve suffered enough.

Your response to the Gulf oil spill has been unreasonable, unwarranted, unfair, and unlawful. Other industries have collaborated with government to tighten safety measures and implement improvements following tragic accidents, but you simply shut down every deepwater drilling operator in the Gulf of Mexico. When a federal judge pronounced your moratorium was unjustified-and later found you in contempt of the injunction-you simply ignored the court’s ruling as if you were above the law.

For nearly a year, you have defied a court order prohibiting you from interfering in the lawful production of energy off the Gulf Coast. You are not issuing deepwater drilling permits and you have been indecisive on the remedies that would satisfy you. For nearly a year, you’ve maintained your de facto moratorium, which is shutting down new energy production in the Gulf.

For well over a year now, you’ve told Americans quite the opposite-that your policies will create jobs, lower energy costs and make us less dependent on foreign oil. You’ve told Americans that you’ve lifted the moratorium, when the facts show otherwise. Americans know a moratorium when they see one. Isn’t it time you started telling the truth?

While your disregard for the rule of law may placate environmental activists and the government-subsidized corporations clambering for alternative energy giveaways, the vast majority of Americans will only suffer the burden of your policies. Most Americans can’t afford to pay $4 for a gallon of gasoline or see their home heating bills skyrocket. They need jobs-they don’t want to be more beholden to those unstable and hostile regimes that your actions are ensuring will supply America’s energy.

Before your moratorium, more than 50,000 oil wells were drilled safely in the Gulf of Mexico. The fact that we earn an honest living serving those operations should in no way suggest that we aren’t concerned with the safety of our colleagues or the health of the Gulf. After all, thousands of us live here-we fish here, we shrimp here, and our children swim here. No one wants to pollute our beaches, put Americans out of work, or spend billions of dollars to clean up a spill. It’s in everyone’s best interests to drill safely.

Mr. President, your deliberate actions to strangle domestic energy production are putting people out of work, raising the price of fuel and weakening our national security. Your political agenda does not supersede American law.

Again, we remind you that Americans have suffered enough. Lift your de facto moratorium on oil drilling in the Gulf and let Americans get back to work.

American Energy Initiative hearings continued in the House today as lawmakers examined the Obama Administration’s de facto energy moratorium and its impact on rising gas prices (they’re going up) and American jobs (there are fewer of them, and losses “continue to mount”).

The two hearings – hosted by the Energy & Power Subcommittee and Natural Resources Committee – were neatly summed up by James Adams of the Offshore Marine Service Association (OMSA) who said, “President Obama’s moratorium needs to end because it is killing jobs, raising the price of energy and making our country vulnerable to unpredictable international political forces.”


obama wants Brazil to drill OUR oil, right out of the Gulf of Mexico. Interior department has approved Petrobas to drill in our Gulf of Mexico.

The U.S. Interior Department said today it has given Petrobras final approval to operate the Gulf of Mexico’s first floating production, storage and offloading vessel, or FPSO, clearing the way for the Brazilian oil giant to start pumping oil from two deep-water fields.

In a statement, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement said it had taken a “final regulatory step” in green lighting the project, with the approval of both a production safety system permit and a supplemental deep-water operating plan.

The fields are located about 165 miles offshore Louisiana and in more than 8,000 feet of water in an area of the Gulf known as Walker Ridge.


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

Obama promised that the USA would underwrite a $2 Billion loan to Brazil’s government owned Petrobras for a massive underwater drilling project.

in Brazil giving a speech to a group of Brazilian businessmen at a CEO Summit, he said “We want to help you with the technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely. And when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers.”

DAMN obama!

Nobel Committee Asked To Strip Obama of Peace Prize

Nobel Committee Asked To Strip Obama of Peace Prize

The Bolivian President and a Russian political leader have launched a campaign to revoke Obama's honour after the US attacked Libya.

Liberal Democratic Party of Russia leader and Vice-Chairman of the State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky released a statement today calling for the Nobel Prize Committee to take back the honour bestowed on US President Barack Obama in 2009.

Zhirinovsky said the attacks were "another outrageous act of aggression by NATO forces and, in particular, the United States," and that the attacks demonstrated a "colonial policy" with "one goal: to establish control over Libyan oil and the Libyan regime." He said the prize was now hypocritical as a result.

Bolivian President Evo Morales echoed the call: "How is it possible that a Nobel Peace Prize winner leads a gang to attack and invade? This is not a defence of human rights or self-determination."

Morales won the Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights in 2006.

He is amongst a number of left-leaning Latin American leaders who have denounced the attacks against Libya. Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, Rafael Correa of Ecuador, Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua and Cristina Ferdinez of Argentina have all criticised western media coverage of the Libyan crisis.

Morales and Chavez repeated calls for peace talks with Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

A message has been widely retweeted on Twitter today: "Obama has now fired more cruise missiles than all other Nobel Peace prize winners combined."

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

"Morales won the Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights in 2006"

The irony of it all. A Marxist Gaddafi-recipient throwing a hissy fit against a Kenyan Marxist. Damn priceless!

Sarah and Todd Palin Visit Israel


Sarah Palin and her husband Todd Palin meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara Netanyahu March 21, 2011 in Jerusalem, Israel.


The Palins visit the Netanyahus



Palin promises to come back for a week (Bibi refused to meet liberal group; chose Palin)

Jerusalem Post

Jerusalem Post

Ahead of the meeting, Netanyahu’s office checked with Palin to see whether they could expand it to a full reception for her with other politicians and aides, but she politely declined.

In an effort to keep her visit as private as possible, Palin also declined all requests for interviews and did her best to avoid the media as she toured the Mount of Olives and Christian sites in Jerusalem on Monday.

Palin and her husband Todd arrived for a two-day visit on Sunday afternoon and toured the Western Wall and its adjacent tunnels. They will visit the Old City again on Monday, tour Gesthsemane and the Mount of Olives, and have dinner with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara at their official residence in Jerusalem.

In private conversations, she vowed to return soon – for a full week – and said she would meet with more politicians and the media then.

J Street officials, who are in Israel for a meeting of the Knesset Diaspora Affairs Committee, complained on Monday that Netanyahu had refused a request to meet with them but had chosen to meet with Palin.

The left-wing American lobby’s president, Jeremy Ben-Ami, said he had wanted to meet with Netanyahu “to introduce ourselves and explain how we can work together as allies.”

Ben-Ami wrote in a letter that “while the Prime Minister doesn’t have time to meet a movement that now represents over 170,000 pro- Israel, pro-peace supporters, he has time to host Sarah Palin for dinner.”

World Likud chairman and Likud MK Danny Danon and Western Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz served as Palin’s tour guides on Sunday night. Palin was told that Jews were not allowed to pray openly on the Temple Mount and about the Arab riots that accompanied Netanyahu’s decision to authorize the creation of an exit from the Western Wall tunnels in 1996.

“Why are you apologizing all the time?” Palin asked her guides.

Palin expressed regret that she would not be able to visit Nazareth or Bethlehem during her brief stay in Israel, but promised that she would soon come back for longer.

“It’s overwhelming to be able to see and touch the cornerstone of our faith,” Palin told reporters upon exiting the tunnels. “I’m so thankful to be able to be here, and I’m thankful to know the Israel-American connection will grow and strengthen as the peace negotiations continue.”

Rabinowitz said that Palin prayed at the point closest to the Holy of Holies and left a note with a personal prayer. Unlike the incident that occurred when then-presidential candidate Barack Obama visited the Western Wall in July 2008, nobody removed her note from the Wall and gave it to the press.

“She said that she absolutely supports Israel and that America is the biggest friend that Israel has,” Rabinowitz said.

When Rabinowitz shared the story of Purim with Palin, she told him it was especially meaningful to be at the Kotel on Purim.

Danon said that Palin’s visit to the Western Wall Tunnels was very exciting.

“She really connected to the story of the Jewish nation,” Danon said. “She knows the material but there’s nothing like standing in front of those big stones and hearing about the connection. I know that she loves Israel, and after a visit like this, she has a personal connection to the Western Wall.”

He called upon Obama to make his first visit to Israel as president as soon as possible.

Palin, who was wearing a large Star of David, told Danon that she had flags of Israel “on my desk, in my home, all over the place” and that she would carry around a flag she bought in Israel.

“She didn’t go into diplomatic issues, but I can clearly say from the questions she asked in relation to our conflict here with the Muslims in these holy sites that she knows that we are right and that the Muslims are just claiming things for provocation and they’re not right,” Danon said.


Israeli Reporter: “Israelis Don’t Know Much About Sarah Palin, But They Know She Loves Israel”

God bless Sarah, she lets her light shine. Our Country is desperately in need of someone of her patriotic character.

I saw the pics of Bibi with Huck and with Mitt. They looked like they were taken in a government office somewhere - not at Bibi's home.

The left-wing American lobby’s president, Jeremy Ben-Ami, said he had wanted to meet with Netanyahu “to introduce ourselves and explain how we can work together as allies.”
"Ben-Ami wrote in a letter that “while the Prime Minister doesn’t have time to meet a movement that now represents over 170,000 pro- Israel, pro-peace supporters, he has time to host Sarah Palin for dinner.”

The Lefties will not fool Bibi for a second.

Sarah’s a class act. She’s smart and lives by the values that made America great. How dare the scum who are behind J Street suggesting that they are affiliated with Jews or Israel. They are enemies within of Israel and the Jewish people. JStreet is an Arabist front group bankrolled by George Soros. All that used to be secret. It is secret no more. Ben Ami is a traitor and it amazes me that he thinks he can still fool anybody.

The U.S. needs a president. Sarah fits the bill.

Obama Demanding Gay Rights Support at UN Body


Barack Obama walks with aide Reggie Love as they cross the street back to their hotel after they played basketball in New York, Monday, Sept. 21, 2009.

Obama's personal aide Reggie Love! There have been cliams the 28-year-old who is the Commander-in-Chief's "body man" - and the First Lady's fury.

US demanding gay rights support at UN body

The Obama administration will introduce its first statement calling for the United Nations’ top human rights body to combat discrimination against gays and lesbians around the world, completing a U.S. reversal from years of ambiguity on the subject during the presidency of George W. Bush.

The U.S. declaration will be made Tuesday at the Geneva-based Human Rights Council and has the support of more than 80 countries.

Although it is not in the form of binding resolution, the American push for U.N. action has helped win over a handful of new countries to the cause. A resolution could be brought to a vote later this year.

The issue of gay rights has polarized nations at the U.N. for years. And despite growing acceptance for homosexuality in Western nations and parts of Latin America, lawyers say there is still a gap in human rights treaties for the protection of gays against discrimination and mistreatment.

“We are very concerned that individuals continue to be killed, arrested and harassed around the world because of their sexual orientation or gender identity,” said Suzanne Nossel, deputy assistant secretary of state for international organizations. “This statement sends a strong message from across the globe that such abuses should not be tolerated.”

The U.S. document calls for nations to end any criminal punishments against lesbians, gays and bisexuals, and asks the global body to review how governments treat them in the U.N.’s human rights assessments. It acknowledges that “these are sensitive issues for many,” but insists that people must be freed from discrimination because of their sexual orientation.

Nossel said the U.S. was proud to be taking a leading role in promoting the idea that gay rights are human rights - among the sharper foreign policy redirections that occurred after President Barack Obama took office.

Obama has stepped up the case for gay rights in recent months, winning a congressional vote to repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" ban on gays serving openly in the U.S. military and urging last weekend in a joint statement with the Brazilian president for the establishment of a special investigator to monitor respect for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender individuals in the Western Hemisphere.

Under the Bush administration, the U.S. policy was markedly different. The administration didn't support a French resolution at the U.N. General Assembly in 2008 that addressed similar concerns, joining Russia, China, the Vatican and Islamic states in opposition.

Rep. Allen West ~ A Real Leader

At the 2nd annual 9/12 Project picnic with Allen West in Lake Worth FL, Congressman Allen West stated that while he is humbled by the support he has received from people across the country who believe he is a viable Senatorial and/or Presidential candidate, but nonetheless, he is staying put in the U.S. House of Representatives.

West then went off to call out Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) by way of a pretty good impersonation- regarding the video in which Reid says that the Tea Party would not survive.

Democrat Senator Webb Critical of Obama’s Libya Operation:"This isn’t the way that our system is supposed to work"

Sen. Webb critical of Obama’s Libya operation: ‘This isn’t the way that our system is supposed to work’

Daily Caller

If we’re going to discuss what’s going on in Libya now and in the future, we have to start with three basic considerations, The first is we have a military operation that’s been put to play, but we do not have a clear diplomatic policy or clear statement of foreign policy that has accompanied this military operation.

The second and the questions you were just asking are some that I’ve asked on the Foreign Relations Committee and the Armed Forces Committee, we know we don’t like the Gaddafi regime, but we do not have a picture of who the opposition movement really is. I’ve asked this repeated to State Department officials including Sec. [Hillary] Clinton in the past couple of weeks. And the third is yes, we got a vote from the Security Council, the United Nations Security Council in order to put this into play...we have not put this issue in front of the American people in any meaningful way.

The president is in Rio. The Congress is out of session. So before we even get in to the command structure of this, I think it’s very clear to put the marker down that moving forward we need to get more involved in terms of anything that goes from this point forward.”

Group Of Democrats In Uproar Over Obama's U.S. Missile Strikes Against Libya

Liberal Democrats in uproar over Libya action


A hard-core group of liberal House Democrats is questioning the constitutionality of U.S. missile strikes against Libya, with one lawmaker raising the prospect of impeachment during a Democratic Caucus conference call on Saturday.

Reps. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), Donna Edwards (Md.), Mike Capuano (Mass.), Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), Maxine Waters (Calif.), Rob Andrews (N.J.), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), Barbara Lee (Calif.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.) “all strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the president’s actions” during that call, said two Democratic lawmakers who took part.

Kucinich, who wanted to bring impeachment articles against both former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney over Iraq — only to be blocked by his own leadership — asked why the U.S. missile strikes aren’t impeachable offenses.

Kucinich also questioned why Democratic leaders didn’t object when President Barack Obama told them of his plan for American participation in enforcing the Libyan no-fly zone during a White House Situation Room meeting on Friday, sources told POLITICO.

And liberals fumed that Congress hadn’t been formally consulted before the attack and expressed concern that it would lead to a third U.S. war in the Muslim world.

While other Democratic lawmakers have publicly backed Obama — including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and top members of the Armed Services, Foreign Affairs and Intelligence committees — the objections from a vocal group of anti-war Democrats on Capitol Hill could become a political problem for Obama, especially if “Operation Odyssey Dawn” fails to topple Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi, leads to significant American casualties, or provokes a wider conflict in the troubled region of North Africa.

Saturday’s conference call was organized by Rep. John Larson (Conn.), chairman of the Democratic Caucus and the fourth-highest ranking party leader. Larson has called for Obama to seek congressional approval before committing the United States to any anti-Qadhafi military operation.

“They consulted the Arab League. They consulted the United Nations. They did not consult the United States Congress,” one Democrat lawmaker said of the White House. “They’re creating wreckage, and they can’t obviate that by saying there are no boots on the ground. … There aren’t boots on the ground; there are Tomahawks in the air.”
“Almost everybody who spoke was opposed to any unilateral actions or decisions being made by the president, and most of us expressed our constitutional concerns. There should be a resolution and there should be a debate so members of Congress can decide whether or not we enter in whatever this action is being called,” added another House Democrat opposed to the Libyan operation.

“Whose side are we on? This appears to be more of a civil war than some kind of a revolution. Who are protecting? Are we with the people that are supposedly opposed to [Qadhafi]? You think they have a lot of people with him? If he is deposed, who will we be dealing with? There are a lot of questions here from members.”

The unrest among Hill Democrat resembles, in part, the debates inside the White House, Pentagon and State Department over the last few weeks as the Libyan crisis has unfolded.

The White House has worked to put out a narrative over the last 48 hours portraying Obama as initially opposed to any involvement in a Libyan campaign, with a major change in the president’s viewpoint developing over the course of the last week as Qadhafi loyalists appeared to be gaining the upper hand and a humanitarian crisis appeared inevitable.

While Defense Secretary Robert Gates led administration opponents of any U.S. role in the anti-Qadhafi operation

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton backed calls from the French and British governments for a NATO-led effort to assist the Libyan rebels. The Clinton clique eventually prevailed in the debate, and Clinton then worked with U.S. allies to craft a U.N. Security Council resolution authorizing the mission.

What is that old saying about a broken clock is right on time two times a day.

The Communist Caucus is mad at obama. LOL Are we reduced to agreeing with them on this ...Kucinich...OMG I feel sick.

Bush got authority from Congress and UN with one year debate. Obama only got it from UN and then rushed to war.

No impeachment will be successful unless it is initiated by and is widely supported by democrats.
Democrats must become convinced that Obama is so toxic that democrats will lose elections as the “party of Obama” for at least a generation. And their only redemption would be to correct the mistake themselves via impeachment.

I am doubtful that would happen, but this is a good start.

And let's not forget about this I posted the other day. I did take joy in watching it. heh heh

Missile Strike Hits Personal Compound Of Moammar Gaddafi

The reports saying that an airstrike has hit the personal compound of Libyan Dictator Moammar Gadhafi in Tripoli. The U.S. says it was not struck by one of our weapons, but that it could have been hit by the British or French.

SKY News International

An air strike has destroyed an administrative building at Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's residential compound, according to reports.

In an attack that carried as much symbolism as military effect, a cruise missile blasted a building near Gadhafi's iconic tent.

It was not known where Gadhafi was at the time, but it seemed to show that while the allies trade nuances over whether his fall is a goal of their campaign - he is not safe.

An Associated Press photographer escorted to the scene by the Libyan government said half of the round, three-story administration building was knocked down.

Smoke rose from the building and pieces of the missile were scattered around the scene.

About 300 Gadhafi supporters were in the compound at the time. It was not known if any were hurt.

News of the strike came as the White House said it did not recognise a ceasefire called by Colonel Gaddafi, and anti-aircraft fire continued in the skies above Tripoli.

The Libyan leader ordered armed forces to down weapons from 7.00pm, via a government spokesman at a press conference, but witnesses reported strong blasts and gunfire in Tripoli throughout the evening.

A 10 Downing Street spokesman responded to the Libyan announcement, following a meeting of the National Security Council, saying: "Everyone will recall that in recent days Colonel Gaddafi declared a ceasefire which was promptly violated.

"We said then we would judge him on his actions not his words - and we will do so again."

Nato has also failed to agree a plan on enforcing the no-fly zone over Libya due to objections on Turkey, while US Defence Secretary Robert Gates confirmed they expected to hand over control of the Libya mission in a "matter of days."

Arab League Express Reservations About Wide Coalition Bombing Campaign in Libya

Arab League Expressing Reservations about Wide Coalition Bombing Campaign in Libya

The Arab League is apparently expression reservations about the breadth of the bombing campaign being undertaken by Coalition Forces against Moammar Gadhafi in Libya. Rather than praising the efforts so far, the spokesman for the Arab League would only say they had asked the U.N. to impose a “no-fly zone” over Libya. He would not comment on the military steps taken thus far.

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

I am so tired of these gigantic sacks of corrupt camel poo and their so called religion. How the HELL do they think a ‘no-fly zone’ is created? with flying carpets?

Who could`nt see this coming? So much for the commies “coalition.” Condemnation from the UN will be next, and Canada and our European allies will start backing out, leaving the US holding the bag.

The moment the Arab League said that, I would have halted all military action and withdrawn our forces to a safe distance.

Then tell the Arab League, you're right. Our efforts to enforce a no-fly zone and protect the people of Libya has caused civilian causalities. We have ceased all action and withdraw to a safe, non-intervention distance.

You have spend countless billions of dollars on building your military forces. We will sit back and take notes as you show us how to deal with this issue without causing any civilian causalities or collateral damage. The world is watching and so are we. This is your problem in your neighborhood. Show us your solution.

U.S. Stealth Bombers Hit Gadhafi Airfield with 40 Bombs; Bodies Possibly Taken Out of Morgues to Look Like Collateral Damage

Three U.S. Stealth Bombers have reportedly dropped 40 bombs on a “major Libyan airfield” as the air campaign against Libyan Dictator Moammar Gadhafi moves forward. The mood in Libya’s Capital of Tripoli is reportedly “incredibly tense” and “incredibly angry.” The U.S. is reportedly saying that Gadhafi’s “surface-to-air missile” defense systems have been “completely destroyed” as a result of tomahawk missile strikes launched yesterday.

Gadhafi is already claiming civilian deaths, but the report says they have some information to suggest that bodies being presented as victims of the airstrikes may have been taken out of morgues in an attempt to make it look like collateral damage.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement on the situation in Libya:

“The United States has a moral obligation to stand with those who seek freedom from oppression and self-government for their people. It’s unacceptable and outrageous for Qadhafi to attack his own people, and the violence must stop.

“The President is the commander-in-chief, but the Administration has a responsibility to define for the American people, the Congress, and our troops what the mission in Libya is, better explain what America’s role is in achieving that mission, and make clear how it will be accomplished. Before any further military commitments are made, the Administration must do a better job of communicating to the American people and to Congress about our mission in Libya and how it will be achieved."

Using dead bodies like it states above sure has been used a lot by Muslims. They did it in Iraq against our troops and they do the same thing in Israel against the IDF.

“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”— Senator Barack Hussein Obama, December 20, 2007

Obama lies, flip flps ala John Kerry and makes his statements toward others but does not think anything applies to him or his administration.

Obama Compliments Brazil's Oil Industry While He Bans Drilling At Home (His Agenda To Help His Master George Soros With Brazil's Petrobas Oil Driling Offshore)

Barack Obama praised the emerging Brazilian oil industry yesterday.


The agreements were signed on the first day of U.S. President Barack Obama’s two-day visit to Brazil, where he met with Brazilian counterpart Dilma Rousseff and a host of local and U.S. business executives.

Obama announced Saturday that he wants America to become a major buyer of - wait for it! - Brazilian oil drilled offshore.

Obama spoke of the US's desire to secure more of its oil from Brazil in future after talks with his counterpart, President Dilma Rousseff, in Brasilia at the start of a two-day visit to Latin America's biggest country. "I have told her that the United States wants to be a major customer, which can be a win-win for both our countries," he said.

Brazil possesses some of the world's biggest offshore oil reserves in the pre-salt area off its south-east coast.

"Brazil possesses some of the world's biggest offshore oil reserves."

Following is a summary of the agreements that were signed:


The United States seeks to be “a strategic energy partner” to Brazil, which recently discovered major new offshore oil reserves. Obama said the United States wants to be one of Brazil’s “best customers” when the oil starts flowing.

Both nations also will increase cooperation on producing biofuels with a specific separate agreement to team up on developing biofuels for aviation.

But, while Obama praised Brazilian energy production he continues to stifle energy production here at home.

Obama the Pay More At The Pump President

Big Government

To be fair, President Obama is in favor of drilling…but just not in the United States.

His numerous bans, restrictions, and proposed taxes are hamstringing America’s ability to produce more oil and gas and are thereby increasing gas and diesel prices. In fact, even the federal government projects that domestic oil production will drop by 220,000 barrels per day in 2011 due to the President’s anti-drilling agenda. Production in 2012 will drop even more…

…American Solutions is re-launching Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less for one big reason: President Obama’s continuing war on American energy is dramatically increasing the price of gas and diesel.

Obama is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil to finance exploration of its huge offshore oil field discovery. His good buddy George Soros is invested heavily in Brazilian energy. Soros Invested Heavily in Petrobras

Obama Underwrites Offshore Drilling ...BUT Not For US

The Wall Street Journal:

The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil’s Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro. Brazil’s planning minister confirmed that White House National Security Adviser James Jones met this month with Brazilian officials to talk about the loan.

The U.S. Export-Import Bank tells us it has issued a “preliminary commitment” letter to Petrobras in the amount of $2 billion and has discussed with Brazil the possibility of increasing that amount. Ex-Im Bank says it has not decided whether the money will come in the form of a direct loan or loan guarantees. Either way, this corporate foreign aid may strike some readers as odd, given that the U.S. Treasury seems desperate for cash and Petrobras is one of the largest corporations in the Americas.

Barack Obama’s pal George Soros has invested heavily in Petrobas. Obama backer George Soros repositioned himself in Petrobras to get dividends just a few days before Obama committed $2 billion in loans and guarantees for Petrobras’ offshore operations.

These are the top 5 holdings of George Soros

1.Petroleo Brasileiro S.A.Petrobras (PBR) – 9,818,323 shares, 15.42% of the total portfolio
2.Hess Corp. (HES) – 5,123,198 shares, 10.56% of the total portfolio
3.Petroleo Brasileiro S.A.Petrobras (PBR-A) – 5,884,700 shares, 7.53% of the total portfolio
4.Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan Inc. (POT) – 1,978,053 shares, 7.06% of the total portfolio
5.Plains Exploration & Production Company (PXP) – 6,526,400 shares, 6.84% of the total portfolio

Note that there are two Petrobas stock numbers (PBR and PBR-A, numbers 1
& 3 listed above).


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

It’s all about his master “soros” one of the largest stock holders of Brazilian oil.

We shouldn’t be buying oil from anybody. We should be producing it ourselves.

U.S., British Ships Launch more than 110 Tomahawk Missiles at 20 Targets in Libya

The U.S. military launched its first airstrikes on Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's air defenses, officials said Saturday.

U.S. Tomahawk missiles landed in the area around Tripoli and Misrata, a senior military official said, adding that the action was taken after Gadhafi failed to comply with a cease-fire.

"He's clearly been on the offensive," the official said of Gadhafi. "He said that he was going to do a cease-fire and he continued to move his forces into Benghazi."

U.S. President Barack Obama confirmed that he had authorized "limited military action in Libya" and that "that action has now begun."

The attacks on Gadhafi's forces will be part of a multiphase approach in a sequential and deliberate manner, according to the official.

"The U.S. will be at the front end of this, providing the unique capabilities that the U.S. has," the official said.

Bombs dropped near Kadhafi’s Tripoli bunker: AFP

TRIPOLI (AFP) – Bombs were dropped near the Tripoli headquarters of strongman Moamer Kadhafi early Sunday, prompting barrages of anti-aircraft fire from Libyan forces, an AFP reporter said

The bombs exploded as an aircraft overflew the Bab al-Aziziyah headquarters in the south of Tripoli.

It was not immediately clear what targets had been hit.

I look at all this from the SEIU as a great sourse of ammo if anyone ever tries to say how awesome unions are and how much good they do. There are so many examples we can site as to how bad these people are.

Dilma Roussef, can´t even go in US. for she will be arrested for the kidnapping of late US Ambassador Charles Burke Elbrick in 1969 when she was a guerrilla.

It would be interesting to see her stepping a foot into US during Obama term, would he arrest her? Would he uphold the law?

By the way, Dilma should not be Brazilian President also, same as Obama - She is no Brazilian Born... But communists do not give a damn about law...

Protesters Throw Molotov Cocktail's At US Consulate in Brazil and Banners Saying “Obama, go home” Ahead of Obama Visit






Brazil police use tear gas to end anti-US protest


Rio De Janeiro

Police fired rubber bullets and used tear gas to break up a demonstration outside the US consulate in Rio de Janeiro on Friday, as US President Barack Obama prepares to visit the country, AFP reports.

Some 300 people had gathered at the site when Brazilian Military Police showed up and tried to break up the demonstration.

Police cracked down on the crowd after protesters hurled a molotov cocktail at the consulate door, the O Globo newspaper reported on its website.

“I was in the center of the protest when people began to run and I heard shots,” said AFP photographer Vanderlei Almeida. “I had to get out of there because it was hard to breathe.”

According to the Reserved Service of the 13th Military Police Battalion (Tiradentes Square), the protesters threw a Molotov cocktail at the U.S. Consulate. Part of the device reached a vigilante and his vest caught fire. To counter the confusion, MPs threw stun grenades and tear gas.

Almeida was struck by two rubber bullets — one hit him in the leg, and the other in his stomach. Several protesters were detained, Almeida said.

The march began in front of the Candelaria church in downtown Rio, and followed by the Rio Branco Avenue until you reach the consulate. Were displayed banners reading “Obama, go home” and “Imperialism no! Obama, take the jaws of the pre-salt. All the solidarity of peoples in struggle.”

Several protesters were detained, Almeida said.

Obama arrives in Brazil on an official Saturday ( today) and will meet President Dilma Rousseff in the capital Brasilia.

On Sunday, he is scheduled to deliver a speech in Rio's Municipal Theater after cancelling a public speech in the city's town square.

The Brazilian authorities have laid out a heavy security presence for Obama's two-day visit to South America's largest nation, and police in Rio had closed numerous streets from midnight Thursday in preparation.


White House announced yesterday that obama will no longer be speaking at a public square in Rio. It seems that the President’s days of pontificating before enraptured foreign audiences may be over.

"White House officials opted to hold President Obama’s major speech in Rio Sunday in an indoor setting, the Municipal Theater, rather than an outdoor venue that might have posed greater security concerns."

Obama's Brazil press conference Q & A scrubbed

A planned press conference Saturday featuring President Barack Obama and new Brazilian President Dilma Vana Rousseff has been scratched, even before Obama departed Washington for his five-day Latin America trip.

The two leaders were scheduled to take questions Saturday morning at the Palacio do Planalto in Brasilia after a bilateral meeting there, but the White House issued a schedule Friday evening noting that the two leaders will make statements but do not plan to entertain inquiries from the press.

A White House official said the change was at the request of the Brazilians. “The Brazilians said they would prefer this format,” said the U.S. aide, who asked not to be named.

Brazilian press reports say Rousseff may be less than eager to be questioned about why the U.S. has yet to endorse a permanent U.N. Security Council seat for Brazil.

Just two days ago, White House officials were proudly highlighting the transparency of having a press conference in each of the three countries on Obama’s itinerary.

Obama Copies G.W. Bush Speech ~ What A Failure You Are Obama!

FOX News

Announcing new international measures Friday against Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, President Obama called it "just one more chapter in the change that is unfolding across the Middle East and North Africa." But some of the president's announcement seemed to take a page from a similarly historic announcement by his predecessor -- even though one senior White House official said making any connection is "reading too much into it."

Obama closed Friday's remarks by saying, "I've taken this decision with the confidence that action is necessary, and that we will not be acting alone. Our goal is focused. Our cause is just. And our coalition is strong."

Nearly a decade earlier, when President George W. Bush announced that U.S. forces were launching military strikes in Afghanistan, Bush said: "To all the men and women in our military ... I say this: Your mission is defined. Your objectives are clear. Your goal is just." Bush used similar wording in other remarks at the time.

Also on Friday, Obama said, "The United States did not seek this outcome. Our decisions have been driven by Qaddafi's refusal to respect the rights of his people and the potential for mass murder of innocent civilians."

On Oct. 7, 2001, Bush said of operations in Afghanistan, "We did not ask for this mission, but we will fulfill it. ... We defend not only our precious freedoms, but also the freedom of people everywhere to live and raise their children free from fear."

The senior White House official said "any similarity is coincidence," adding that neither Obama nor his speechwriters reviewed Bush's remarks from Oct. 7, 2001.

What a waste as a hunan being obama is, he can't do one thing with good character. He bashed G.W. Bush endlessly and then turns around and copies him.

Are We There Yet? by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

Are We There Yet?

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

Given events of the past two years with Obama, Soros and the Democrat Congress doing everything possible to bring about the collapse of the U.S. so that they can rebuild it in their “totally changed” image, along with the crescendo of world and domestic events in recent weeks, one surmises that prophecy about end times may well be coming to fruition.

There is world-wide economic instability, inflation is beginning to balloon led by the cost of gasoline nearly doubling in less than a year and that alone is already having negative economic consequences; there are earthquakes in Indonesia, Chile, Haiti, New Zealand, and Japan; volcanic activity in Indonesia, Philippines, Japan, Italy, Hawaii, Mexico, Peru and Russia; last year was the great oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, storms and flooding in Australia, unusual blizzards in the U.S. and heightened solar activity and storms; and, there are uprisings and wars across the Middle East from Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan and Iraq.

And there is the continuing invasion across the Southern Border of the U.S. about which Obama is doing essentially nothing.

Then, there are the lunatics in Wisconsin, ah, yes, the self-serving symbiosis of government unions and Democrats that on the one hand are elected by the Union members’ dues and on the other whose dues are contributed almost exclusively to election and re-election of Democrats. In any sane society that’s called a conflict of interest, but who ever said liberals were sane? Just watch them rage at being denied their “rights” while Republicans try to get government costs under control. Great Kabuki that’s both comical and tragic to any rational observer.

Has anyone seen Obama? Of course, he’s busy abrogating U.S. leadership; playing golf and vacationing in Rio. Obama behaves more like a poor person putting on airs after winning the lottery than the leader of the free world. We wrote early and often that Obama is an empty suit, and he has amply demonstrated that he is, and given his vaunted intellect he has to know what he is doing after two years in office being exposed to the litany of events and staff briefings that daily flood the Oval Office. He may be Mr. “Cool” but he is a policy, economic, and leadership disaster for this Nation.

All of the foregoing events are reminiscent of the twenty fourth chapter of Matthew which is worthy of quoting here in its entirety.

“Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said to them, "Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down."

3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?"

4 And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

15 "Therefore when you see the 'abomination of desolation,' spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 "then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.

23 "Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'There!' do not believe it. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.

26 "Therefore if they say to you, 'Look, He is in the desert!' do not go out; or 'Look, He is in the inner rooms!' do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.

29 "Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32 "Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.

36 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

45 "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. 47 Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, 'My master is delaying his coming,' 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

As children are wont to ask on a trip that lasts more than thirty minutes, “Are we there yet?” No-one can say for certain, and it is likely that there are many years before the end, and there will be an end, absolutely, positively guaranteed, however, as the thirty sixth verse states, “36 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”

I confess to not understanding what seem to be incongruities in the passage nor will I attempt to explain them, but in my opinion one would be wise to be ready for the eventualities without regard to timing that is known only to God.

One thing is certain, Obama is not the Messiah and like Nero fiddles while the U.S. “burns.” Anyone for a round of golf? 2012, are we there yet?

Another good one by the Col.

Obama has dumbed down the Presidency to that of a community organizer. Isn't it something that a narcissist like barack hussein obama seems to be playing a major part in bringing the world to the “end times”. When those end times will be no one knows, but for sure obama will be known as having a part in it.

Israeli Navy Uncovers Weaponry Intended for Terrorist Organization in the Gaza Strip

Israeli Navy Uncovers Weaponry Intended for Terrorist Organization in the Gaza Strip

March 15th, the Israeli Navy uncovered weaponry intended for terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip.
The IDF Channel released video tonight on the incident. The weapons originated in Iran and were on route to terror organizations in Gaza.


Israel’s navy boarded a ship flying a Liberian flag about 200 nautical miles (370 kilometers) from its coast that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said was carrying weapons intended for “terrorist organizations” in the Gaza Strip.

“The source of the weapons is Iran, which is trying to arm Gaza,” Netanyahu said today in a text message.

Army Spokesman Brigadier General Avi Benayahu said the ship loaded cargo in the Syrian port of Latakia and was carrying three containers of weapons to Egypt to be smuggled into Hamas- controlled Gaza.

“Iran is the source of all evil in this region,” Benayahu said on Army Radio today, noting Iranian ships had docked in Syria two weeks earlier. “It finances, supports, encourages and supplies all the terrorist organizations operating here.”

United Nations Approves 'no-fly zone'

Lou Dobbs reporting news that the United Nations Security Council voted late this afternoon to authorize a no-fly zone over Libya, and the use of “all means necessary” to prevent Libyan Dictator Moammar Gadhafi from destroying rebel forces in Benghazi and the rest of the country.

United Nations approves 'no-fly zone'

Security Council approved Thursday evening a resolution that would establish a no-fly zone over Libya, and would authorize the use of air strikes against Colonel Muammar Qadhafi’s forces targeting anti-government rebels and civilians.

The resolution authorizes the world body “to take all necessary measures… to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack” from forces loyal to the Libyan dictator, including Benghazi, a rebel stronghold Qadhafi has targeted. The UN did not specify when the air patrols over Libyan airspace would begin, or which country would take the lead, but there are several reports that British and French warplanes could strike pro-government positions as soon as Friday.

The White House, which was reluctant to engage in any military action without international support, did not have an immediate response to the resolution. Ten Security Council member countries voted in favor of the measures against Libya, including France, Germany, Britain and the U.S., while five — including Russia and China — abstained.

The U.N. resolution allows not only a no-fly zone but also any measures up to a ground invasion to halt attacks that might result in civilian casualties.

Lugar: No-fly zone requires declaration of war

Foreign Policy

Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee argued against implementing a no-fly zone over Libya on Thursday, and also said that Congress must pass a formal declaration of war if the Obama administration decides to take that step.

“Clearly, the United States should be engaged with allies on how to oppose the Qaddafi regime and support the aspirations of the Libyan people,” said Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN) at the start of the committee’s Thursday morning hearing on the Middle East. “But given the costs of a no-fly zone, the risks that our involvement would escalate, the uncertain reception in the Arab street of any American intervention in an Arab country, the potential for civilian deaths, the unpredictability of the endgame in a civil war, the strains on our military, and other factors, I am doubtful that U.S. interests would be served by imposing a no-fly zone over Libya.”

Lugar pointed to the fact that 145,000 American troops are currently deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and that the annual U.S. budget deficit is already around $1.5 trillion.

“In this broad context, if the Obama administration decides to impose a no-fly zone or take other significant military action in Libya, I believe it should first seek a Congressional debate on a declaration of war under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution,” Lugar said.

Obama Nominee For Deputy Budget Director Heather Higginbottom Fails At Trying To Defend Obama's Budget Deception

Obama's nominee for deputy budget director Heather Higginbottom vs. Republican senator Jeff Session at a senate Budget Committee hearing yesterday.

The Budget Committee held a hearing to consider the nomination of Heather Higginbottom to be President Obama's deputy budget director. Sen. Sessions confronted the nominee over false assertions from the White House regarding the president's budget.

Both President Obama and his budget director have repeatedly said that the president's budget allows us to "live within our means," "spend money that we have each year," and "begin paying down our debt." Numerous fact-check organizations have found these statements to be false and Sessions has argued that these inaccurate claims undermine efforts to confront our growing fiscal crisis.

In reality, the budget that President Obama submitted adds $13 trillion to the debt, never has a deficit less than $600 billion, and spends more than it takes in every single year. And by the tenth year, interest payments on our debt will rise to $844 billion--more than we spend on Medicare or defense.

Although Sessions vowed to provide Higginbottom with "a fair and thorough hearing" he noted that "she has a remarkable absence of relevant experience. Instead, her experience is political, such as her work on the Obama presidential campaign."

"My fear is that Ms. Higgonbottom’s nomination may be akin to appointing a wartime general who has never had a day of military service," he said.

Sessions outlined his broader concerns over the nation's fiscal condition and his issues with the White House's fiscal 2012 budget proposal.

"This hearing also occurs at a time when I have growing concerns about the lack of candor from this White House when it comes to our nation’s fiscal challenges," he said.

Sessions questioned statements by President Obama and budget director Jack Lew who have said the fiscal 2012 budget request will help put the nation's fiscal house back.

"Not one of these claims is true," he said. "And yet the White House has persisted in its irresponsible presentation.

"If we are to confront our growing budget crisis we need fact-based budgeting, not fantasy budgeting."

Sessions signaled it would not be an easy confirmation process.

“I cannot support a nominee to this position who cannot discuss this budget with clarity and candor,” he said. “There can be no debating the president’s budget does not live within our means.”

Note: Higginbottom, a former advisor for Obama's presidential campaign, has no formal budget training or experience

The Butcher Boy - Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem


An Irish man walks into a pub. The bartender asks him, "what'll you have?" The man says, "Give me three pints of Guinness please."

So the bartender brings him three pints and the man proceeds to alternately sip one, then the other, then the third until they're gone. He then orders three more.

The bartender says, "Sir, I know you like them cold. You don't have to order three at a time. I can keep an eye on it and when you get low I'll bring you a fresh cold one."

The man says, "You don't understand. I have two brothers, one in Australia and one in the States. We made a vow to each other that every Saturday night we'd still drink together. So right now, my brothers have three Guinness Stouts too, and we're drinking together.

The bartender thought that was a wonderful tradition.

Every week the man came in and ordered three beers. Then one week he came in and ordered only two. He drank them and then ordered two more.

The bartender said to him, "I know what your tradition is, and I'd just like to say that I'm sorry that one of your brothers died."

The man said, "Oh, me brothers are fine - I just quit drinking."

And Heaven accept you.


Into a Belfast pub comes Paddy Murphy, looking like he’d just been run over by a train. His arm is in a sling, his nose is broken, his face is cut and bruised and he’s walking with a limp.

“What happened to you?” asks Sean, the bartender.

“Jamie O’Conner and me had a fight,” says Paddy.

“That little shit, O’Conner,” says Sean, “He couldn’t do that to you, he must have had something in his hand.”

“That he did,” says Paddy, “a shovel is what he had, and a terrible lickin’ he gave me with it.”

“Well,” says Sean, “you should have defended yourself, didn’t you have something in your hand?”

“That I did,” said Paddy... “Mrs. O’Conner’s breast, and a thing of beauty it was, but useless in a fight.”

LOL I love the Irish jokes and their humor. And the music is fantastic!!!

As sure as the shamrocks are growing in the land which the Irish all love, as sure as the lakes of Killarney reflect the blue heavens above-as sure as the warmhearted Irish all pay honor to Saint Patrick too, I’m wishing you all “top o’the morning” and happiness, always, for you all. For each petal on the shamrock this brings a wish your way~~good health, good luck and happiness for today and every day.

Obama Seeks to Restrict 2nd Amendment Without Congressional Approval ~ Most Anti-Gun President in US History

Obama Seeks to Restrict 2nd Amendment Without Congressional Approval ~ Most Anti-Gun President in US History

Sean Hannity did this video back in 2008 of obama and guns.

Please share this with others that might have forgotten or did not know how strongly he is anti-guns. He is the most anti-gun president in the history of America. ~ Wild Thing


Obama Seeks to Restrict 2nd Amendment Without Congressional Approval

The Second Amendment is one of the cornerstones of American Democracy and Independence. It guarantees the "right to bear arms," allowing average citizens to own firearms.

The Founding Fathers included this provision, amongst other reasons, because the British tried to restrict who could own weapons and how many in order to force colonists into submission.

It protects against a tyrannical government with a strangle hold on power and guns.

Administration officials now say that President Obama is looking fervently into ways to restrict the Second Amendment. Even worse, the President is looking at ways around the legislature completely, hoping that laws can be "secured strictly through executive action."

The Department of Justice held a meeting Tuesday, the first of what is expected to be many, discussing gun laws. The main focus? The White House's attempts to form a gun policy and change laws.

One official stated, “The purpose of these discussions is to be a productive exchange of good ideas from folks across the spectrum. We think that’s a good place to start.”

At the same time as this meeting, Democrats introduced new legislation to increase gun control. The bill mirrors new laws supported by Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY). On limiting gun ownership, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who supports the bill, stated:

"Too often, any serious discussion about guns devolves into ideological arguments that have nothing to do with the real problem. Our coalition strongly believes in the Second Amendment. We also know from experience that we can keep guns away from dangerous people without imposing burdens on law-abiding gun owners."


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

He really does think he’s a dictator....and HE IS!!!!!!!

When Obama said, “I do solemnly swear that I will . . . to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” it meant as little as all his other promises. The evil, anti-American thug from Kenya/Indonesia/Hawaii/Chicago is a liar who wants to destroy our country. What also is very concerning is that so many real live Americans joined the fictional and dead voters in putting that communist in office.

Administration officials now say that President Obama is looking fervently into ways to restrict the Second Amendment. Even worse, the President is looking at ways around the legislature completely, hoping that laws can be "secured strictly through executive action."

In 1787, just outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Mrs. Powell asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or monarchy?” Without hesitation, Franklin responded, “a republic if you can keep it.”

Obama’s plan is indeed to transform our nation into a society dependent on the federal government, and in doing so, undermine our Constitution and America’s system of limited government.

White House Scrubs Obama Transparency Award Ceremony ~ ROTFLMAO Obama Would Not Know Transparency If It Kicked Him In His Ugly Ass!

White House scrubs Obama transparency award ceremony

The Hill

The White House announced Wednesday it has postponed a ceremony for President Obama to accept transparency award from a government watchdog group.

The event was scrubbed due to scheduling changes, according to a White House pool report, and is supposed to be rescheduled.

Obama was scheduled to accept an award from the Freedom of Information Day Conference recognizing, "his deep commitment to an open and transparent government—of, by, and for the people," according to press guidance.

The right-leaning Drudge Report played up the award ceremony Wednesday on its site under the headline, "All WH events Wednesday 'closed press' -- except for ceremony praising Obama's 'commitment to transparent government'..."

A pool spray was scheduled to cover the top of the event.

Obama had four closed-to-the-press meetings scheduled prior to when he was supposed to be receiving his transparency award.

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

BWAHAHA! LMAO! GREAT, he can put it on his “things I didn’t earn” wall, next to the Nobel peace prize.

The right-leaning Drudge Report played up the award ceremony Wednesday on its site under the headline, "All WH events Wednesday 'closed press' -- except for ceremony praising Obama's 'commitment to transparent government'..."

Drudge played up the hypocracy by noting the president’s schedule of “closed” conferences.

Rush Limbaugh talked about this yesterday too. hahahha

We are living in Bizzaro World = up is down, black is white, good is evil, evil is good. Obama and his so called “administration” are as transparent as a 20 foot thick, 1000 foot high wall of case hardened steel.

LOL even the MSM journalists have been complaining recently that Obama is NOT answering questions.

“The White House postponed an event scheduled for Wednesday afternoon where President Obama was supposed to receive an award for a commitment to transparency due to unspecified “changes to the president’s schedule.”

It will probably be rescheduled to an undisclosed time and location. heh heh

Nancy Pelosi ( is so far ‘out there’ that it is uncharted territory) Lectures on Fiscal Responsibility

“Democrats have long fought for fiscal responsibility.”

“President Obama was a job creator from day one.”

“Democrats “saved/created 3.6 million jobs” and “reduced the deficit” and created “fiscal soundness.”

“I believe we have an obligation as a government to be job creators.”

When Pelosi took over Congress the national deficit was $162 billion. When she exited in January 2011 it was at $1.29 Trillion dollars. Pelosi and Barack Obama even managed to triple the national deficit in his first year after the stimulus passed.

"Let There Be No Doubt, The White House ( Obama) Efforts Are Costing Jobs and Putting Even More Pressure on Gas Prices"

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell on the Senate Floor: "Let There Be No Doubt, The White House Efforts Are Costing Jobs and Putting Even More Pressure on Gas Prices"

Senator Mitch McConnell says the White House is paying lip service on pain at the pump

McConnell Proposes Ways to Provide Relief at the Pump: Increase U.S. Production, Halt Job-Stifling Regulations

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell delivered the following remarks on the Senate floor Wednesday regarding rising gas prices and the need to explore U.S. energy resources:

“The rising cost of gasoline has become a major source of concern for most Americans. And with prices in most states moving closer and closer to $4 a gallon, and already higher in some areas, Americans have a right to know where the President and Democrats in Congress stand on the issue.

“So let me just begin this morning with the simple observation that it’s no accident that gas prices are skyrocketing at a time when Democrats control two thirds of official Washington.

“It’s no secret that Democrat leaders in Washington don’t particularly care for the issue.

“Ask them about gas prices, and chances are they’ll tell you about some car they plan to build and have ready for production about 25 years down the road.

“Suggest that we tap some of our own domestic American sources of oil, and they’ll give you 101 reasons why we can’t, and how that’s not a real solution anyway because it’ll take too long to get it out of the ground. We’ve been having that particular argument for decades now.

“And then they have the audacity to step in front of the cameras and tell us they’re all for reducing our dependence on foreign sources of oil. With what — windmills?

“It’s time to be serious about a serious problem.

"Don’t listen to what they say on this issue — watch what they do.

“And here’s what they’ve done.

“Over the past two years, the Obama administration has delayed, revoked, suspended, or canceled an enormous range of development opportunities.

“One month after the President took office, his administration cancelled 77 oil and gas leases in Utah — once the review was complete the administration refused to reinstate a single one.

“A month after that, the administration shortened lease terms for offshore oil and gas production and raised fees for permit applications.

“Last January, it announced new restrictions for onshore oil and gas exploration in the Mountain West.

“Last February, it denied a permit to build a bridge needed to access an oil producing field in Alaska, after the Environmental Protection Agency designated a nearby river an aquatic resource of national importance.

“Last April, the Administration suspended 61 oil and gas leases in Montana that were issued in 2008 — then announced that all oil and gas leases in Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota would be delayed indefinitely.

“Last May, the President announced a 6-month moratorium on deepwater drilling — a moratorium that’s been repeatedly struck down in the courts.

“The list of actions like these goes on and on.

“And that’s to say nothing of the proposed new Environmental Protection Agency regulations on energy that would either cause oil refineries to pass along their resulting new production costs to consumers at the pump or drive them and their jobs overseas.

“So let there be no doubt: the White House efforts are costing jobs and putting even more pressure on gas prices. And paying lip service to the public’s concerns won’t solve the problem.

“But unlocking our own sources of energy here at home would help immensely.

“Just to give you an idea of the kind of resources we have right here at home, consider that just one 2,000-acre section of the non-wilderness sections of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, along with the Chukchi and Beaufort seas, have enough recoverable oil to replace crude imports from the Persian Gulf for nearly 65 years. So the problem isn’t that we need to look elsewhere for our energy.

“The problem is that Democrats in Washington won’t let us use it.

“The problem is that even with gas prices on the rise, they want to tax it even more.

“So let’s make this simple:

“I’m going to propose just two, concrete, practical things we can do in Washington to give the American people some relief, create jobs, and help make us less dependent on foreign sources of oil — two ideas that should have wide bipartisan support.

“Let’s increase American energy production.

“And let’s block any new regulations that will drive up production costs for energy.

“Two ideas that will create jobs and alleviate the increasing pressure on gas prices.

“Let’s leave the ideology aside and do some practical good for Americans who are struggling out there.

“Let’s increase American production of energy with American jobs and stop the job-stifling regulations.”

Obama's Energy Secretary Steven Chu Will NOT Discuss Drilling in ANWR ~ Obama Hostile Towards Energy Causes Prices Way Up For Groceries and Gas

Obama’s Energy Secretary – Steven Chu – just flat out refusing to even talk about the subject of drilling in ANWR – the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

After testifying before the House Energy and Water Development Subcommittee about his department’s FY2012 budget, asked Energy Secretary Steven Chu if — given the high price of gasoline — he supports increasing offshore drilling and opening up ANWR [Arctic National Wildlife Refuge] to domestic drilling?”

Chu responded, “I’m not going to talk about ANWR, but I think there’s many areas in the arctic that are potential exploration sites. We have opened up deep shore oil drilling; as I said, there are now two new leases since the Macondo well in deep shore. There have been some 33 or 35 shallow wells, so that has continued.”

Food Prices Increase Most in 36 Years


Wholesale prices jumped last month by the most in nearly two years due to higher energy costs and the steepest rise in food prices in 36 years. Excluding those volatile categories, inflation was tame.

The Labor Department said Wednesday that the Producer Price Index rose a seasonally adjusted 1.6 percent in February double the 0.8 percent rise in the previous month. Outside of food and energy costs, the core index ticked up 0.2 percent, less than January's 0.5 percent rise.

Food prices soared 3.9 percent last month, the biggest gain since November 1974. Most of that increase was due to a sharp rise in vegetable costs, which increased nearly 50 percent. That was the most in almost a year. Meat and dairy products also rose.

Energy prices rose 3.3 percent last month, led by a 3.7 percent increase in gasoline costs.

Obama is to blame for not allowing drilling and opening up resources in America and then stopping rigs from working in the gulf. He wants higher gas.

Largest jump in food prices in 36 years. Gas jumped big time, don't complain to me all you lefties. Unless you can take my rage directed at You in a most personal way. ( for the leftie lurkers of this blog)

Oh and leftie lurker Nigel, your efforts are wasted, I don't even read your comments you try to get through. They just get deleted with no one even seeing them. Your hate for our country, our Military, Conservatives should be taken to another blog more to how you think. Just go to hell and turn left you will be right at home.

House GOP Rejects Amendments That Say Global Warming Is Real ~ GOOD News!!!

Legislation to block regulations on carbon emissions passes a key House vote, while Sen. McConnell moves to force a Senate vote on similar legislation

House GOP rejects amendments that say climate change is real

The Hill

House Republicans rejected an amendment offered Tuesday by a top Democrat that called on Congress to accept the scientific consensus that climate change is occurring.

House Energy and Commerce Committee ranking Democrat Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) offered the amendment Tuesday during the panel’s markup of legislation to block Environmental Protection Agency climate rules in an effort to get Republicans on the record on climate science.

The amendment failed on a party-line vote of 31-20. No Republicans voted for the amendment.

The legislation to block EPA climate rules would repeal an EPA finding that climate change endangers human health and welfare. Waxman’s amendment calls on Congress to accept the portion of EPA’s finding that says climate change is occurring.

The amendment says that “Congress accepts the scientific finding of the Environmental Protection Agency that ‘warming of the climate system is unequivocal, as is now evident from observations of increases in global average air and ocean temperatures, widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global average sea level.’”

augh Waxman! Will they ever vote him out of office. sheesh, he just keeps popping up every so often.

House of Representatives Passes 3 Week Spending Bill As 54 Conservative Republicans Vote No

This is Lou Dobbs new show and it is on Fox Business. Congratulations Lou!!!
The interview he did with Mike Pence was done the day before the vote yesterday. Unfortunately not enough Republicans voted with the ones voting NO so instead of what Pence, West and others wanted by their NO vote, the House passed the three-week spending bill .

The House of Representatives Tuesday afternoon passed the three-week spending bill to keep the government open through April 8 by a count of 271-158, but with dozens of Republicans rejecting the latest stop-gap measure, the pressure is rising on Congressional leaders to reach a compromise to fund the government through the end of the fiscal year.

While the last short-term spending bill received nearly unanimous support from the Republican Conference on March 1 (only six opposed), 54 House Republicans, including 22 GOP freshmen, peeled off in opposition to the latest short-term bill, with many conservatives taking a stand against funding the government on an incremental basis. Without support from 85 House Democrats, the bill could have failed.

“My ‘No’ vote should not be construed as my willingness for a ‘government shutdown.’ My vote is based on a simple principle that we need to complete the federal budget for 2011,” Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., said in a statement explaining his opposition to the bill. “We cannot wait any longer. The time has come to have this debate on federal spending and get our nation back on track by cutting spending for the long term economic restoration of our Republic.”


Statement for the Congressional Record on the Continuing Resolution

.by Congressman Allen West on Tuesday, March 15

Allen West Facebook page

Mr. Speaker: I rise today to take a stand, a stand that may not be popular with the Leadership of the House of Representatives, but a stand I must take because I believe we cannot kick the can down the road for even another three weeks. The American people recognize that we must no longer take these small calculated measures. Today I will vote against another short term Continuing Resolution.

In the shortest month of the year, February, the federal government had the largest deficit of $223 billion in our nation’s entire history. The American People know that we are in a fiscal crisis and have sent me to address out-of-control spending.

The Majority in the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1 which reduced spending by $61 billion for the remainder of this Fiscal Year. Even though H.R 1 only cut spending by approximately 1.5 percent of the entire requested budget for Fiscal Year 2011, H.R. 1 reversed the trend of the Democrat Majority which increased overall discretionary funding by 24% over the last two years. The United States Senate rejected this amount as too much. They believe that, after President Barack Obama and the Democrat Congress presented trillion dollar deficit budgets, a freeze is the only viable approach.

I am not a supporter of big government. However, the federal government does perform certain important functions. Many essential federal agencies cannot move forward with planning and using resources if every several weeks they are faced with the threat that they will need to close their doors until we resolve this impasse. Could any business in America function this way? Can a family household function this way?

Mr. Speaker, President Obama and the United States Congresses of the past have created the Nanny States of America. Vast segments of the American people are now dependent on our federal government and not dependent on their own ability, skills and entrepreneurial spirit to succeed in this nation.

We are in this position today because the Democrats in the last Congress failed to pass a budget. Further, the President appoints Vice President Biden as the Administration point person on the negotiations while he flies off to Europe. The Democrats failed to show leadership last year and the President is showing a lack of leadership today. I will show what I consider appropriate leadership now and vote against this Continuing Resolution.

Mr. Speaker, the American people are watching us closely. Today, with information so readily available on the internet they know the truth of our desperate economic situation. The days of Washington, D.C. double-talk no longer works.

The American people know that the federal government is collecting $2.2 trillion and spending $3.7 trillion this year. The American people know forty cents of every dollar the federal government spends is borrowed, much of it from China. The American people also know our nation is piling up new debt at the rate of $4 billion a day. So, what does $6 billion of spending cuts really buy the American people?

Further, the General Accountability Office released a 345-page report detailing the redundancies of federal programs and the $100 to $200 billion of savings that could be achieved if these programs were consolidated or eliminated.

My colleagues on the other side of the aisle want to argue that these cuts in spending will weaken an already slow economy and contribute to an increase in the loss of jobs. I believe this is a disingenuous argument. The truth is, the spending over the last two years has not reduced the loss of jobs, but instead has contributed to the largest debt in American history which will be passed on to my children and my grandchildren.

In Wisconsin, we have seen what the unionized entitlement class can do and the pressure they can place on their elected officials. Wisconsin State Legislators running to a neighboring state to hide from making a hard vote and protestors storming the Wisconsin State Capitol are not in concert with the principles of a representative democracy.

Mr. Speaker, Madison, Wisconsin is only 700 miles from the United States Capitol.

The Founders of our nation wrote in the Declaration of Independence “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The “Pursuit” of Happiness, not the federal government’s “Guarantee” of Happiness!

Finally, Mr. Speaker, we can continue to rehash the past of how we have gotten into this situation, but I would rather focus on the future. The future is now and the place is here for us to get our nation back on track. I support the cuts in the Continuing Resolution. I support the elimination of these projects.

However, my “No” vote should not be construed as my willingness for a “government shutdown.” My “No” vote is based on a simple principle that we need to complete the federal budget for 2011. It is time to have this debate on federal spending and get our nation back on track by cutting spending for the long term economic restoration of our Republic.

Alexander the Great once stated, "Fortune favors the bold." The American people are looking for principled and bold leadership. I understand "political maneuvering" but the time has come to engage in the battle for the fiscal responsible future of America. I take my position on the frontlines.

Outstanding Patriots Of The Week: Rep. Peter King And Gov. Scott Walker

Outstanding Patriots Of The Week: Rep. Peter King And Gov. Scott Walker

by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Link to write up

This past week law-abiding fiscally rational patriots had to tolerate anti-American socialist Democrats along with their union thugs who spend millions in taxpayer dollars to bribe naïve ‘students’ and the ‘Reverend’ Jesse Jackson to exhibit explicitly childish and even criminal behavior as an attention-getting ploy which is so characteristic of mental liberal disorder (MLB).

Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin had one goal in mind: to balance the 3.6 billion dollar budget deficit incurred by spendthrift Democrats before him. The Democrats had a different goal in mind: to selfishly preserve special rights which their federal government and private sector counterparts do not have while continuing to plunder taxpayers as the nation suffers a case of terminal debt.

Democrat politicians should be required to take Economics 101 along with a few tutorials on manners and civility---two words not found in the Left’s vocabulary. It is pathetic if not humorous that 14 Wisconsin Democrats fled the state to Illinois so they could be protected by union thugs at taxpayer expense and avoid losing the vote on key financial reform measures favored by the majority. Their constituents recognize they were AWOL while still being compensated by state taxpayers. Their absence from the Wisconsin legislature violated a number of laws and rules which should be addressed by the state including clarification as to who paid them off to desert their posts.

The majority of citizens nationwide regard these charlatans as childish and destructive to the democratic process. They are cry babies when they don’t get their way. I cannot recall at time when Republicans or Independents deserted their obligations to the electorate when a vote was not going their way.

Recall that public unions collect dues from their members whose salaries and benefits are paid for by taxpayers. Their goal is to continue their special privilege of taking but not giving back during hard times for America which in large part have been caused by the Democrats whom they elected. About 90% of those who protest in Madison are not even from Wisconsin---they are flown or bussed in at taxpayer expense to create a scene for empathetic Leftwing media outlets. Unfortunately for them, most citizens know that America’s public unions are like spoiled children of socialist career politicians who get reelected largely through massive diversion of money from union members to their political campaigns and then engage in payback tactics to union bosses. Obscene!

Not surprisingly, the ‘Reverend’ Jesse Jackson showed up to cheer the protesters on as though he could relive the days of the civil rights movement of the sixties. Jesse pretends he is a spokesperson for the ‘working class’ when reality shows he has a persecution complex and loves to exploit that in front of the Leftwing media outlets. He and wealthy slob Michael Moore excite protesters into a frenzy which results in destruction of private property and mortal threats against legislators and their families.

The Left’s ways define them from Tea Party Patriots who behave as responsible mature adults and carry out peaceful rallies to educate the public and our politicians about their pledge to uphold the Constitution---a sacred document for which the Left has no respect. Republicans and Independents must continue the march forward to halt and reverse growing Fedzilla and its wasteful spending, and put public workers’ on par with private sector and Federal workers. Remember this: Equal rights for all; special rights for none!

America’s other Patriot of the Week is New York Representative Peter King who successfully spearheaded a long overdue public initiative to face up to and deal with radicalization of Muslim youth which now poses a growing threat to our national security.

Representative King along with Republicans on the Committee for Homeland Security made it crystal clear that the hearings were not targeting a specific religion or race, but rather a specific problem---Islamic Jihad, which has been responsible for tens of thousands of deaths of innocent people including moderate Muslims over many decades. The Left was well-represented by Democrat Representatives Sheila Jackson Lee and Al Green of Texas and Representatives Jackie Speier and Laura Richardson of California, each of whom predictably sang the same chorus that the hearings were appalling for singling out or ‘profiling a religious group’, while suggesting such hearings should also address militias and white supremacy groups---none of which rise to the level of Jihad. Even the Muslim witnesses who testified before the committee exalted Mr. King’s efforts and disagreed with the broken record of off-topic racist accusations leveled by these four representatives.

One has to wonder if Green, Lee, Speier and Richardson are really that stupid in not recognizing the reality that our nation and its identity is being threatened from within by Jihadists or are they simply trying to use their PC to divert the committee’s attention away from the problem (if so, that is self-destructive). Fortunately rational educated people prevailed and were able to circumvent the false characterization painted by the Left and begin the process of educating members as well as the public regarding the fact that about 15% of Muslim youth in America between ages 18 and 29 say they support suicide bombings to achieve their goal of killing the ‘infidels’ and establishing universal Sharia Law. To solve a problem one must first define it and then coordinate efforts at all levels.

Cheers for Peter King, Scott Walker and all other patriotic Americans who conduct themselves as mature educated adults as they combat the destruction of America by foreign and domestic elements which include Jihadists as well as the radical Left which exploits political correctness as a method to divert efforts to efficiently target those who would bring about the demise of our nation, its foundations, and traditional values.

I agree, Pedter King and Scott Walker had withstood a ton of attacks, bashing and all the left can give them. I pray they get a lot of support from people that love America so they know we out number the crazy left out there.

Heroic Marine Lance Cpl. William Kyle Carpenter Honored

Marine Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter, gets support from his fiance Jordan Gleaton, in the state senate chambers, where Sen. Jake Knotts, R-Lexington, presented a proclamation honoring Marine Lance Cpl. William Kyle Carpenter


Marine Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter, flanked by his parents, Robert and Robin Carpenter of Gilbert, recounts his experience of being injured in a combat zone in Afghanistan during a press conference Wednesday at the statehouse.

Heroic Marine honored

Marine Lance Cpl. William Kyle Carpenter, his face missing an eye and crisscrossed with deep scars, stood on the floor of the S.C. Senate on Wednesday to receive the thanks of his state.

Carpenter, 21, of Gilbert lost the eye, most of his teeth and use of his right arm from a grenade blast Nov. 21 near Marjah, Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

Friends and family say he threw himself in front of the grenade to protect his best friend in Afghanistan, Cpl. Nick Eufrazio.

Carpenter just remembers seeing the grenade. Then a white flash. Then a fellow Marine telling him he would be fine.

Then, four weeks later, he woke up in a hospital in Germany.

“The second I woke up, I saw my family by my bedside,” he said.

The Senate resolution noted Carpenter “suffered catastrophic wounds in the cause of freedom” and “has shown himself worthy of the name Marine.”

Carpenter shook almost every senator’s hand — with his left hand — after the reading.

He said his experience was nothing unusual in war. People back home, worried about the economy and gas prices, he said, should remember Marines and soldiers are still being maimed and killed.

“The light is on me right now,” he said. “But I’m hoping what happened to me will help remind people that things like this happen every day and people don’t see it. I’m proud of what my fellow Marines have done there and are doing there now.”

Helmand Province is one of the most dangerous places in the world.

Carpenter and a 12-man squad from his 9th Regiment, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force, were on patrol outside Marjah. They were in the fifth month of a seven-month deployment.

They were in a village they called Shadier, between two other villages they named Shady and Shadiest.

They had been in hard combat, he said, as the Marines were pushing out farther from their base, expanding the territory they controlled.

“For two days we had been hit pretty hard,” he said. “We moved into (enemy) territory, and they didn’t like it.”

He was fighting on a rooftop when the grenade hit.

“I took 99 percent of the blast,” he said. “But one little piece of shrapnel got by me and went into (Eufrazio’s) brain.”

According to Sen. Jake Knotts, who sponsored and read the proclamation, Eufrazio suffered a serious brain injury and is recovering in Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland. He is now speaking and talking.

Carpenter also spent most of his recovery time — which so far has included 25 surgeries and more than 100 hours of physical therapy — at Bethesda.

There, he said, he was inspired by the other patients, many of whom had no legs or no eyes or no arms.

“I’m lucky,” he said.

Knotts said that Carpenter has been nominated for the Medal of Honor, adding, “And I think this kid deserves it.”

But Carpenter said that “people saying they are proud of me is enough.”

That doesn’t surprise his 20-year-old fiancee, Jordan Gleaton.

“I haven’t heard him complain one time,” Gleaton said. “I would be a mess.”

“It’s been a tough three months,” she added. “I don’t feel like I’m 20 anymore.”

Carpenter’s parents, Robert and Robin Carpenter of Gilbert, say they are proud of the way their son has handled his horrific injuries.

They call him “our miracle.”


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

God bless Marine Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter, and may he always know how much his sacrifices mean to all of us, that we will never forget. He has serious injuries but an amazing strength. A true hero. With all my heart I truely thank you Marine Lance Col William Kyle Carpenter.

America to have the highest corporate tax rate in April

America to have the highest corporate tax rate in April

The Daily Caller

The world’s superpower is about to lead the way in yet another realm. Next month, America is set to bear the distinction of having the highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world.

According to a study by the Tax Foundation, America’s combined federal and state rate of 39.2 percent is only out paced by Japan’s rate of 39.5 percent – which Japan plans to lower next month. Without Japan in the lead, America’s 39.2 percent will render it the corporate tax rate leader in the developed world, aka the countries comprising the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

In recent years, many OECD nations have been lowering their corporate income tax to create more favorable environments for business. The Tax Foundation notes that since 2000 Germany, Canada, Greece, Turkey, Poland, the Slovak Republic, Iceland, and Ireland have all lowered their corporate tax rates by double-digits.

The study’s author and Tax Foundation president Scott A. Hodge said that one of America’s economic pitfalls will be the high corporate income tax.

“United States companies are now in the position of trying to compete in the 21st century world economy with a 20th century tax system,” said Ho. “Dozens of countries around the world—including many of the United States’ closest trading partners—have realized that sky-high corporate tax rates are an economic dead end. Now more than ever, Americans want to see policies that will help create increased growth, more jobs, and higher standards of living – exactly the things that a lower and more streamlined corporate tax system can help achieve.”

The Tax Foundation’s study adds fodder to a similar warning that came from the Cato Institute in February. Cato advised that the U.S. reduce its corporate tax burden by 10 percent or more.

“A growing number of policymakers are recognizing that the U.S. corporate tax system is a major barrier to economic growth,” Duanjie Chen and Jack Mintz wrote in a Cato bulletin. “The aim of corporate tax reforms should be to create a system that has a competitive rate and is neutral between different business activities.”

Notice how all the bad things our country is getting to be number one with and all the good things America meant to the world and especially we the people ( since obama got his brubby hands on our country) have turned upside down and backward. sheesh

The more this destruction keeps up there will be a day when another devastation like the one in Japan happens and we will not be able to help at all. The shining light on the hill Reagan spoke of will exist in our hearts but not as a country to the world. We have GOT to take our country back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Corp Taxes benefit no one but the Government. It destroys our nations ability to compete in the World Market.

Team Obama ( Arrogant Putz OBAMA ) Threatens Supreme Court to Stay Away From Health Care Challege

Team Obama tells Supreme Court to Stay Away From Health Care Challege

FOX News

The Obama administration told the Supreme Court on Monday night it should stay away from a high-profile challenge to the 2010 health care law until after a lower court has had a chance to review the case.

Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal wrote, "there is no basis for short-circuiting the normal course of appellate review." Katyal also says Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's case is problematic because he may lack sufficient standing to challenge the health care law.

The Supreme Court normally takes cases only after they've been reviewed at least once by appellate judges. Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says that's not appropriate in this instance.

In his filing last month, Cuccinelli said there's a "palpable consensus" that the high court will ultimately have to pass judgment on the merits of President Obama's health care law and should do so without delay. Furthermore, Cuccinelli argues that his case involves "pure issues of constitutional law" that appellate judges on the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals will be unable to definitively resolve.

Katyal says there is no question that the case is of great public importance but uses the language of the court's own rules to say it is not "one of the rare cases that justifies deviation from normal appellate practice and require[s] immediate determination in this court." Katyal points out that the Virginia case and several others are already in the pipeline and little time may be saved if the court were to jump in now.

The Obama administration told the Supreme Court on Monday night it should stay away from a high-profile challenge to the 2010 health care law until after a lower court has had a chance to review the case.

He sure has a lot of nerve!!!! The Supreme Court , the very same court obama slammed at his past State of the Union Address that time. Obama truly despises the Rule of Law. Since when does the President have the right to tell the Supreme Court what to do?

I would LOVE to see the Supreme Court also say oh really Obama, tell you what we will not only check out YOUR socialized medicine obamacare but we are also going to rule on your eligibility.

Ring...ring....ring....calling has already been ruled unconstitutional by the lower court. Federal Judge Roger Vinson, who is right here in Florida , has already ruled Obamacare unconstitutional. He is the second Federal Judge to do so. Our new Governor Rick Scott, has thrown the weight of his office behind it too.

The Supreme Court needs to tell Dcitator obama to go pound sand. Obama needs to understand that government that serves United States of America works nothing like the third world republics that he idolizes.

Miracle Baby Girl Found In Rubble: Four-month-old Reunited With Her Father After Incredible Rescue

The member of Japan's Self-Defence Force member holds the four-month-old baby girl in Ishinomaki, northern Japan after her rescue

Miracle of the baby girl plucked from the rubble: Four-month-old reunited with her father after incredible rescue


The sound of a baby’s cry amid the rubble seemed so impossible that soldiers searching a tsunami-smashed village dismissed it as a mistake.

But it came again. And they realised they had not been hearing things.

They pulled away wood and slate, dug back thick oozing mud – and there was the child they were to describe as a ‘tiny miracle’.

The four-month-old girl had been swept from her parents’ arms in the shattered village of Ishinomaki when the deadly wave crashed into the family home.

For three days, the child’s frantic family had believed she was lost to them for ever.

But yesterday, for a brief moment, the horrors of the disaster were brightened by one helpless baby’s story of survival.
Soldiers from the Japanese Defence Force had been going from door to door pulling bodies from the devastated homes in Ishinomaki, a coastal town northeast of Sendai.

Most of the victims were elderly, unable to escape the destructive black tide.

But for this precious moment, at least, it was only the child who mattered to the team of civil defence troops who found her.

One of them picked her up in his arms, wrapped her in a blanket which had been handed to him and cradled the child as his colleagues crowded around, not believing that someone as young as this had survived when all hope had been lost.
The tiniest survivor was cold and wet and crying, but she is believed to have suffered no other injuries. Why she did not drown remained a mystery.

But the soldiers were somehow able to trace her overjoyed father, who had been taking refuge in his wrecked home with the rest of his family.

Even then, the nightmare wasn’t over. For just minutes after the emotional reunion, the shell-shocked survivors were told that a second tsunami might be on its way.

The panicked father begged the soldiers to take the baby to safety on higher ground.

But the 11am alarm proved to be false and the reunited family returned to try and rebuild their home.
Amid the devastation, there have been precious few tales of survival.

But the discovery of the unnamed child has given fresh hope that others might be found alive in the shattered landscape which covers scores of miles of the east coast of Honshu island.

Yesterday, it emerged that witnesses looking down from the second floor of a house in one of the worst hit areas thought they noticed some movement in the back of a wrecked car by the side of the road and soldiers discovered an elderly woman who had been trapped in the passenger seat for more than 20 hours.

Although she was traumatised by her ordeal, the victim was said to be otherwise unhurt.

As the Mail reported yesterday, Hiromitsu Shinkawa was found sitting on the roof of his floating home about nine miles from shore. Waving a red cloth, he was picked up by a boat. His wife is missing.

‘Several helicopters and ships passed but none of them noticed me,’ he said. ‘I thought that was going to be the last day of my life.’

A man in his 70s was also pulled from a collapsed building in Sendai, a port town badly hit by the double disaster.

Before the baby’s discovery, searchers found at least 2,000 bodies cast up along the shoreline of the badly-hit Miyagi prefecture.

All had drowned, according to police, and as the search through the debris continued throughout the day officials conceded that what had started out as a rescue effort would become a recovery operation.

And then came the cry of a little girl.

‘Her discovery has put a new energy into the search,’ said a civil defence official. ‘We will listen, look and dig with even more diligence after this.’

.......And fear: Upon hearing another tsunami warning, a father tries to flee to safety with the baby girl he has just been reunited with.

Some welcome GOOD news! Thank God. The smile of the soldier holding the baby says it all.

Marco Rubio: “I Will No Longer Support Short-Term Budget Plans...We Can No Longer Afford To Nickel and Dime Our Way Out of Dangerous Debt"

Marco Rubio: “I Will No Longer Support Short-Term Budget Plans...We Can No Longer Afford To Nickel and Dime Our Way Out of Dangerous Debt"

The Daily Caller

Only a few months into his first Senate term, Florida Republican Marco Rubio took a stand against his party’s leadership with a promise to vote against any short-term proposal to fund the government, and said members of Congress should feel “ashamed” if they fail to reach a deal on long-term spending cuts.

“I will no longer support short-term budget plans. While attempts at new spending reductions are commendable, we simply can no longer afford to nickel-and-dime our way out of the dangerous debt America has amassed,” Rubio wrote in an op-ed published on the conservative blog Monday.

“With Congress set to begin another week-long recess next week, every senator and representative should feel ashamed if they have to go home again, look their constituents in the eye, and explain why nothing is being done about our debt crisis.”

Congress has not passed a federal budget since 2009, instead choosing to fund the government through a string of short term continuing resolutions (CRs).

Republicans, who took control of the House in January, have demanded that each new CR contain spending reductions. Earlier this month, Democrats and Republicans agreed to a two-week extension with about $4 billion in cuts and House Republicans last week introduced a measure to fund the government another three weeks with $6 billion in spending reductions.

Rubio let loose on the whole process, calling it “short-sighted and dangerous.”

“Running our government on the fumes of borrowed spending is unacceptable, short-sighted and dangerous,” Rubio wrote. “I commend the efforts of House and Senate Republican leaders to deal with this, but I did not come to the U.S. Senate to be part of some absurd political theater

Rubio joins a short list of Tea Party senators, including Rand Paul of Kentucky, Jim DeMint of South Carolina and Mike Lee of Utah, who already have expressed their discontent with the stopgap budgets. He said he would “no longer” back short-term budget bills, adding that Congress cannot “nickel-and-dime our way” out of the debt crisis.

Resistance on the Senate side is being matched by conservative ire in the House, where spending bills originate.

Fox News has learned that Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, chairman of the influential Republican Study Committee, will oppose the short-term bill, scheduled to hit the floor Tuesday or Wednesday. The study committee represents the bloc of the most conservative voices in the House — Jordan’s stance could open the door for others to follow suit in voting against the bill.

In a Tweet last week, freshman Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., already announced: “I will NOT be voting for another short term CR. There is a confrontation coming on this budget and the sooner we get to it the better.”

West added:

Rep. Allen West of Florida said it isn’t playing well back home and that constituents “are tired of half-measures.”

Obama and Family Head to Rio Sunday ~ While Japan Has Worst Devastation!


Barack Obama will take his first official trip to Brazil this weekend where he will speak in the popular Cinelandia Square in downtown Rio de Janeiro.

Access, of course, will be tightly restricted and security measures so secretive that not even the Embassy or US Consulate in Rio know exactly who it’s all going to go down.

Obama’s speech will be free and open to the public and take place around 15:00 local time (14:00 EST).

Access to the square will begin at 11:30, and is sure to draw a crowd.

Obama is popular in Brazil. One politician seeking office in Rio actually changed his name to Barack Obama in 2008 to solicit votes. He didn’t win.

The Obama family will also take in the sights in Rio. A trip to Corcovado mountain, where the Christ the Redeemer statue stands (France gave us Lady Liberty, gave Brazil Jesus) is supposedly on the itinerary. What trip to Rio would be complete without it? If they do make it to the top of the mountain, they will do so with an entourage of secret service and Brazil’s Elite Squad, known as BOPE.

Wild Thing's comment.....

Japan is facing the worst devastation to their country . And Obama heads to Rio. Meanwhile Japanese people are without shelter, food and water and facing possible radiation contamination.

History will damn him as the most destructive, incompetent, petulant, self-centered, wastrel, pathetic loser, anti-American, anti-America, pro-socialism, anti-Freedom, anti-constitution individual to ever have the office. nobama is a hate crime fomented against us all.

Speaker Boehner calls out Obama: ‘Talk is cheap, actions speak louder than words’ ~ Thank You John Boehner!!!

Boehner calls out Obama: ‘Talk is cheap, actions speak louder than words’

The Daily Caller

With the new appointment of banker Bill Daley as President Barack Obama’s chief of staff, some have wondered if the White House is attempting to change the perception it is an anti-business administration.

But on Monday night’s “The Kudlow Report” on CNBC, Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner said it was going to take more than just that appointment to convince him the Obama administration has changed its attitude toward the business community.

“I’ve talked to the president a lot over the last couple of months and talked to Mr. Daley a number of times,” Boehner said. “Talk is cheap, actions speak louder than words. I haven’t seen any new actions, yet.”

Boehner even offered some suggestions.

“Send the free-trade agreements to Congress for our consideration,” Boehner said. “Let’s put a real moratorium on new regulations coming out of his administration, which he’s also called for.”

Another pro-business gesture, Boehner said, could come through tax reform, which Obama has hinted at over the past few months. Host Larry Kudlow asked if new Republican House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan was up to the task.

“If we want to make America more competitive we’ve got to reform our corporate tax code,” Boehner said. “It’s in the way of job creation in America. Dave Camp is a great chairman. We came to Congress together 21 years ago. He is working on that reform. There’s a number of hearings that are already set up. The administration appears to have some interest in wanting to pursue this and I’m optimistic.”

That tax reform could come this year, Boehner added.

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

If only we could send obama off to prison for being a traitor and then get a conservative as president. All these things the conservatives want to do would be so huge to get America back and business doing good again.

Obama Tanks In The Polls As Voters Wake Up To Obama Being The Worst President

Rasmussen Presidential Tracking Poll

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 23% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20. That matches the president’s lowest ratings of 2011.

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

These polls go up and down but it looks like each time they go down gets less and less for obama. Iti should be minus 100 but that would be a dream come true.

It sure would help if the socialist media wanted to tell the truth and do real news concerning obama instead of propaganda.

USS Carrier Ronald Reagan Moved After Detecting Radioactive Plume Off Japan

What is Low Dose Radiation Exposure


USS Carrier Ronald Reagan Moved After Detecting Radioactive Plume Off Japan


The aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and other US Navy ships in the waters off the quake zone in eastern Japan were repositioned after the detection of a low-level radiation plume from the troubled Fukushima nuclear plant located 100 miles away.

According to 7th Fleet Commander and Spokesman Jeff Davis, the ships were moved away from the downwind direction of the plant as a precautionary measure on Sunday.

The carrier is one of seven US Navy ships that were quickly moved to the eastern coast of Japan to assist with relief operations after Friday's earthquake and tsunami.

The ship's crew was exposed to a very low level of radiation.

"The maximum potential radiation dose received by any ship's force personnel aboard the ship when it passed through the area was less than the radiation exposure received from about one month of exposure to natural background radiation from sources such as rocks, soil, and the sun, " Davis said.

According to Davis, the radiation was first detected by air particulate detectors aboard three helicopters located 60 miles away from the shoreline.

The helicopters were returning to the carrier from a relief mission to the quake and tsunami ravaged city of Sendai.

Davis said the source of the radiation was a radioactive plume emitted by the plant.

After the helicopters landed on the carrier, radioactive contamination was found on the exterior surface of three aircrafts.

Following decontamination protocols, the 17 crewmembers aboard and the three helicopters were tested and found to have been exposed to low levels of radiation.

Most of the radiation was found on the crewmembers clothes, but radiation was detected on the skin of one of the crewmembers.

If Obama was just incompetent ( and we all knew that during the campaign when he bashed Sarah Palin for not being qualifed for VP) that would be one thing...but he’s an incompetent who hates America and is a devout Marxist. That’s something to worry about.

Teacher's Pet: Oscar The Classroom Labrador Wins Award For The Dog Who Most Improves Children's Behaviour

Paying attention: Oscar the teacher's pet keeps a close eye on events in Cantell Maths and Computing College in Southampton

Teacher's pet: Oscar the classroom labrador wins award for the dog who most improves children's behaviour


School in Southampton has cut trouble by amazing 40%

A school has taken the idea of 'teacher's pet' to a whole new level - by getting its own dog.

Chocolate labrador Oscar was brought in to Cantell Maths and Computing College to help with some pupils' behavioural problems.

And incredibly those problems have been almost halved since he arrived.

The friendly rescue dog is part of the school's restorative approaches (RA) policy for pupils who cause trouble in class or have fallen out with friends.

As part of the scheme, students are provided with a secluded classroom, where they can carry on with their work, or seek comfort from staff - including Oscar.

Since he was introduced to the school in Southampton a month ago staff have noticed a dramatic 40 per cent cut in student misbehaviour.

RA co-ordinator Des Anderson said: 'He's a best mate for the kids.
'Sometimes we get students who come in and they're angry and Oscar goes over and calms them down, because it's very difficult to be angry with a labrador.
'It means we can work with them within the hour, rather than having to wait until the next day.

'Rather than having a punitive approach we have a restorative approach where we try to get them to acknowledge what they've done wrong.

'It might be falling out, it might be bad behaviour, it might be having a bad time somewhere else.

'Our mantra is this is a safe place to have a difficult conversation.

'We record everything and I would say we've reduced the incidents that we have to deal with by 40 per cent since September.

'But what's really key is we've improved the students' ability to put things right.' Oscar spends every day in the school's RA base, where he plays with the children or simply sits while they read to him or just sit and stroke him.

Year 7 pupil Matthew Manning, 12, added: 'Oscar is really fun and he's really cute. I love him to bits.

'All the times I've been upset he's come over to me to cheer me up.'


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

Great story.

Awhile back I recall an article here where a teacher started bringing her dog (lab) into a remedial reading program.

Of course, being kids, they did not want to read aloud or even read at it was difficult for them. The teacher found that they LOVED to read to the dog; and it worked incredibly well.

Violence Advocated at Unlawful Socialist Protest - Portland Oregon

March 11, 2010, Pioneer Courthouse Square, Portland Oregon. Socialists gather unlawfully. Security is shouted down, and a union member steps in to interfere with officers. Mob rule prevails. Participants advocate violence and assembling without the proper permits. Numerous profanities are used with children present. High School students are encouraged to walk out of class and are on the way. Signs show violent symbols (e.g., "Sacrifice the Rich," cross hairs with bullet holes), and homophobic slurs ("Scott Walker is a Koch Fiend."). More of the same is promised in the future.

Scott Walker fundraiser in Washburn held this last weekend.

The leftie protesters were there yeling their hate about the rich corporations taking their last pennies. That was not enough for them they even videotaped the license plates of donors at the Scott Walker fundraiser.

People were definitely saying their piece, greeting each vehicle that arrived for the dinner with shouts of “Shame!” while waving protest signs and shaking their fists. One person videotaped the license plates of at least some of the vehicles that entered.

Protesters banged pots, shook tambourines at car windows and sounded horns. Most of the drivers and their passengers stared straight ahead. They had to navigate through a narrow tunnel formed by protesters on both sides, held back by Bayfield County sheriff’s deputies and rally organizers.

The radicals from the unionistas, Code Pinko, “ANSWER Coalition”, the greenies, socialists and anarchists are planning RIOTS for this next weekend....Saturday March 19th and according to their website are calling it......
International Day of Action

From their site regarding next Saturday:

On Saturday, tens of thousands more will hit the streets in Madison. Unions, community organizations, anti-war activists and others are coming from across the state and nearby states to show their outrage. It is expected to be the biggest outpouring of support for working families yet.

Calls for a general strike are growing. Hundreds of people at the capitol are carrying signs reading, “Labor can win: Time for a general strike.” Progressive filmmaker Michael Moore called on students across the country to walk out in solidarity with Wisconsin.

And Joe Conway, president of the Madison firefighters’ union, voiced support for a general strike. When asked by a reporter what he thought about a general strike, Conway responded: “I’m in total agreement. We should start walking out tomorrow, the next day. … See how long they can last. … This is a nation-wide movement to attack all working men and women in Wisconsin and the United States.”

This is VERY concerning...scary. In many States a person can get information like a home address etc. just from a license plate.

Isn't that group that has the of groups Soros owns/donates to etc. ???? It sounds familiar.

Attorney General Eric "my people" Holder Forcing City of Dayton to Lower Its Standards So Minority Applicants Can Pass Test

The Dayton Police Department is lowering its testing standards for recruits.


It’s a move required by the U.S. Department of Justice after it says not enough African-Americans passed the exam.

Dayton is in desperate need of officers to replace dozens of retirees. The hiring process was postponed for months because the D.O.J. rejected the original scores provided by the Dayton Civil Service Board, which administers the test.

Under the previous requirements, candidates had to get a 66% on part one of the exam and a 72% on part two.

The D.O.J. approved new scoring policy only requires potential police officers to get a 58% and a 63%. That’s the equivalent of an ‘F’ and a ‘D’.

“It becomes a safety issue for the people of our community,” said Dayton Fraternal Order of Police President, Randy Beane. “It becomes a safety issue to have an incompetent officer next to you in a life and death situation.”

“The NAACP does not support individuals failing a test and then having the opportunity to be gainfully employed,” agreed Dayton NAACP President Derrick Foward.

The D.O.J. and Civil Service Board declined Dayton’s News Source’s repeat requests for interviews. The lower standards mean 258 more people passed the test. The city won’t say how many were minorities.

“If you lower the score for any group of people, you’re not getting the best qualified people for the job,” Foward said.

“We need to work with the youth and make them interested in becoming law enforcement officers and firefighters,” said Beane. “Break down the barriers whether they are real or perceived, so we can move forward in this community.”

The D.O.J. has forced other police departments across the country to lower testing standards, citing once again that not enough black candidates were passing.

The Dayton Firefighter recruit exam is coming up this summer. The chief said it’s likely the passing score for that test will be lowered as well.

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

If I was black and trying for this job, I would be insulted by what Eric Holder is asking (demanding ) to happen. Totally insulted, the same way I would feel about the horrible press 1 for English etc.. Why can't people realize this catering like this only makes the person look stupid and for sure unable to do the job they are wanting. The same with the Press 1 for English, it makes those needing this look stupid.

Japan Warns of Fresh Nuclear Blast Risk and American Troops Arrive

U.S. troops, USS Ronald Reagan arrive in Japan


The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan arrived off the coast of Japan Sunday to support Japanese forces in disaster relief operations, the U.S. Department of Defense said in a statement.

More U.S. aid -- in the form of equipment, staffers and search-and-rescue teams -- was expected to arrive Sunday to address the widespread devastation caused by the 8.9-magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami.

Near Honshu, Japan, the USS Ronald Reagan will support the Japan Self-Defense Force by providing refueling operations for Japanese helicopters and transporting the island country's troops to disaster areas, according to the Pentagon statement.

Accompanying the Reagan are the guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville and the destroyer USS Preble.


The city seems to be so silent and suddenly a big wave is coming up, unbelievable. The power of water is incredible. May God be with Japan.


Navy Loads Supplies for Japan Relief

The U.S. Navy has released video of HH-60 Sea Hawk helicopters loading supplies for the humanitarian relief effort in Japan. (March 12)

The U.S. military rerouted several ships toward Japan on Friday and began preparing for humanitarian missions in the wake of a devastating earthquake and tsunami that left at least hundreds dead.

Private U.S. aid groups began collecting funds and, in some cases, preparing emergency supplies. But experts said that Japan would probably not need the kind of massive support that poor countries such as Haiti require after a crisis. Japan has one of the best government disaster-response agencies in the world, with long experience in recovery from earthquakes.

Still, President Obama said he told Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan that the United States was ready to help.

"This is a potentially catastrophic disaster, and the images of destruction and flooding coming out of Japan are simply heartbreaking," Obama said at a news conference.

He said the main U.S. assistance would probably be "lift capacity," a reference to helicopters and planes that can carry heavy loads...Washington Post

Has Obama mentioned this aircraft carrier by name yet? According to Rush, he only said, “We have sent an aircraft carrier.”

The Salvation Army is already there and also asking for help.

Democrat Protesters Climbing The Wisconsin Capitol Walls During Lock Out Yesterday and Republican State Senators Told To Skip St. Patricks Day Parade For Safety Reasons

“This is what thuggery looks like.”

They will stop at nothing… Far Left goons scaled the walls of the Wisconsin capitol yesterday and harassed officials sitting inside their offices. These idiots even filmed their harassment.

Wisconsin Republican Forced to Skip St. Patricks Day Parade Appearance Due to Death Threats

A Wisconsin Republican was told not to participate in this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Fond du Lac after receiving death threats this week. Police told the senator to sit this one out.

FOX 11

A parade with more than 50 entries will now be down two participants.

Fond du Lac police say the tension in Madison has spawned threats, they and lawmakers are acting on.

“We’ve taken them all seriously and we’re happy to say that none of them have panned out yet here in Fond du Lac, so we’re still vigilant,” Deputy Chief Kevin Lemke said.

State Senator Randy Hopper and State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt, both Republicans, have decided not to march in the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday.

Hopper was among the Republican lawmakers who received death threats, in connection to the battle over collective bargaining and fixing a budget deficit.

Deputy Chief Kevin Lemke says officers advised Hopper not to attend.

The parade will start at 3:00 p.m. at Rees and Main and move south down Main Street. It is meant to be a family affair, but this year will have a significant police presence.

“Obviously people have a right to express their political views, we’re just concerned for the safety of himself, participants and people that are there to enjoy the parade,” Lemke explained.


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

This is crazy, how these protesters are behaving. And this is America and to have anyone concerned about attending a parade because of not being safe..... OMG.

Where is Obama condeming these death threats.....???? He is probably calling them to cheer them on.

America Hater Obama and IDIOT RINO Mitch Daniels Roast Potential 2012 Candidates

Obama, Mitch Daniels roast potential 2012 candidates


Obama mocked his potential 2012 GOP rivals — and poked fun at himself — while Mitch Daniels returned fire and got in his own shot at Sarah Palin at Saturday night’s 126th annual Gridiron Club dinner of Washington politicos and journalists.

Obama, in his first address to the group as president, pounced on Haley Barbour’s weight – by highlighting First Lady Michelle Obama’s efforts to end obesity in the country.

“Haley, when Michelle said you should run, she didn’t mean for president,” he cracked.

The president didn’t spare Tim Pawlenty either.

“Tim Pawlenty’s not here, but he’s hit the campaign trail hard,” Obama said. “And to be honest, I think the American people are going to have some tough questions for Tim. Specifically, ‘Who are you and where do you come from?’ Which is OK. Two years into my presidency and I’m still getting those questions.”

Obama could not resist tossing a zinger at Jon Huntsman, a Republican who is stepping down as U.S. ambassador to China to consider a run for the White House.

Knowing that conservatives would question Huntsman’s service in a Democratic administration, Obama said with a laugh, “My dear, dear friend Jon Huntsman — nobody has done more for my administration. He’s the yin to my yang.”

To Daniels, Obama said he had heard that “your friends at Fox News say you don’t look like a president. Well, don’t worry about it, they say the same thing about me every day.”

Daniels, who gave the Republican response, returned fire at the president, invoking the sling he wore thanks to recent rotator-cuff surgery. He mentioned Obama’s comment during the 2008 campaign about conservatives seeking religion and guns as touchstones.

“Mr. President, until I get this thing off, I can cling to my gun or my Bible but not both,” Daniels quipped.

The Indiana governor, who is considering a run for the White House, also joked about the president’s widely-reported use of written texts at big events, saying, “Mr. President you’re not laughing, who forgot to put ha-ha-ha on the teleprompter?”

But Daniels saved some of his harshest jabs for his potential Republican primary rivals.

Daniels poked both Palin and Mike Huckabee with a single punch, raising the former Arkansas governor’s gaffe in which he claimed inaccurately more than once that the president grew up in Kenya.

“Sarah Palin pounces and says, ‘Wrong, Mike — he’s never been to Europe,” said Daniels, according to a guest on hand for the event, which was off the record to the White House pool.

Daniels also joked that the whole rotator-cuff surgery story was a ruse.

He actually suffered a broken rub flying to the National Governors Association conference, because, “I sat in a middle seat between Haley Barbour and Chris Christie.”

“Their tummies were tucked in the full upright and locked position,” Daniels joked

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius appeared on behalf of the Democrats, and took a shot at Pawlenty in her speech, according to a Twitter post from the Wall Street Journal’s Alan Murray – who found ways around the tweet-free zone the Gridiron was supposed to be.

“Let’s not forget Tim Pawlenty….the voters will do that,” Sebelius said .

Sebelius also parried back at Daniels, saying, “We’re both Midwestern governors, we’ve both been cabinet secretaries, and neither of us is going to be president in 2012.”

The event is staged by the exclusive D.C. journalists’ club, and Obama was the 21st president to attend. Every president except for Grover Cleveland has spoken at the dinner since the Gridiron Club was formed in 1885.

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

Well ole Mitch fit right in trashing Sarah Palin didn't he. sheesh. Mitch is a coward with the what he said about Wisconsin and his not standing up to the unions. Mitch Daniels called on State GOP to abandon Unioni -busting bill.

IMO, Mitch will never get near the White House except through the guest entrance ... if that.

And now he says this..... Mitch Daniels says Right to Work Bill should be dropped, he will not support what the GOP is trying to do. . He is a constant disappointment.

GOP Senators Introduce National 'Right-to-Work' Bill to Restrict Unions

GOP Senators Introduce National 'Right-to-Work' Bill to Restrict Unions

FOX News

A group of conservative U.S. senators has introduced a bill to restrict unions from forcing workers to join and pay dues as a condition of employment.

The move on Capitol Hill comes as several states consider what’s known as “right-to-work” legislation — proposals that have met stiff resistance. Indiana Republicans recently shelved their right-to-work bill after it sparked protests at the capital and after Democrats fled the state to block it, mimicking the tactic used by Wisconsin lawmakers holding up Gov. Scott Walker’s anti-union proposal.

But GOP senators in Washington said national legislation is needed to stop the “strong-arm political tactics” they claim labor bosses are using to compel new employees into joining their ranks. They introduced the National Right to Work Act Tuesday.

“No American should be forced to join a union and pay dues to get a job in this country,” Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., said in a statement. “Many Americans are already struggling just to put food on the table, and they shouldn’t have to fear losing their jobs or face discrimination if they don’t want to join a union. Forced-unionism shields unions from member accountability and has a detrimental effect on the economy.”

Opponents of right-to-work legislation say the proposals would lower pay and hurt workers.

The American Federation of Government Employees, which represents federal workers, said in a statement Wednesday it would oppose the bill “in solidarity” with other unions, while noting it would not affect federal employees.

For years, the country has been split about 50-50 between states that allow employees to decide whether to join a union and states that allow unions to require membership. Most southern and central Midwestern states are right-to-work states, while the West Coast, New England and the northern Midwest comprise what critics call “forced-unionism” states.

Currently 22 states have right-to-work laws, according to the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation. Research by the National Conference of State Legislatures shows that several states in New England and in the northern Midwest are now considering right-to-work proposals.

Right-to-work advocates say states with those laws on the books are more conducive to economic growth.

DeMint was joined by seven other co-sponsors, including Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Orrin Hatch, R-Utah; Mike Lee, R-Utah; Rand Paul, R-Ky.; James Risch, R-Idaho; Pat Toomey, R-Pa.; and David Vitter, R-La.

In February ( last month) Mitch Daniels: Indiana Republicans Should Drop the Right to Work Bill

Gov. Mitch Daniels signaled this afternoon that Republicans should to drop the right-to-work bill that has brought the Indiana House to a standstill for two days and imperiled other measures.

Daniels told reporters this afternoon that he expects House Democrats will return to work if the bill dies. The Democrat minority has right to express its views, he added.


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

Good for othe GOP Senators for introducing this bill.

Bye Bye Gov. Mitch RINO Daniels for your wanting a truce with the Demcorats in your State on so many things. Glad he is NOT a Senator. Thank God for Gov.s like Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

Oil Industry Says Obama Did Not Tell The Truth! But Obama Continues To Hold USA Hostage As He Opposes Drilling in Arctic

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar being asked why the Obama Administration does not support drilling for oil in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) as a way to move America to Energy independence – particularly in light of the rising price of gasoline.

Salazar’s response was ridiculous. Instead of trying justify what he knows is not justifiable, he just said:

“We don’t believe that you need to drill everywhere, and we don’t believe that the “Drill, baby, Drill” program is the way that’s going to get us to the energy independence that we need for America or that will power our economy. . . . “

Oil Industry Says Obama Didn't Tell the Truth

FOX Nation

Last week, at a House Natural Resources Committee hearing, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar told Congress that oil production in the Gulf of Mexico "remained at an all-time high." Salazar claimed: "In 2009 there were 116 rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, in 2010 in February, 120, in February 2011, 126."

He was lying.

This is from Energy Tomorrow blog reported

Salazar’s numbers distort the true number of working rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. According to Baker Hughes:

* Four days before the Deepwater Horizon accident there were 55 rotary rigs actually drilling offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.

* On May 28, 2010, when the administration announced the six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling, there were 46 rotary rigs operating in the Gulf.

* Last week, 25 rotary rigs were operating in the Gulf of Mexico

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

It amazes me how the left will NOT see it is all obama doing this.
US Oil reserves is largest in the world , shale alone has more oil then Saudi Arabia...get your facts correct Salazar !

There is something I really believe. Obama may be smart or stupid, we really have no idea because his school records have been locked and sealed away. His actions one would think he is stupid about many things, BUT the difference is that we know for a fact of his hate for America and for our Constitution and his racist feelings about white people. These are facts not our feelings, facts from the books he has done, from speeches and interviews he has done.

Putting these facts together we can come to a very true knowledge that obama is bound and determined to change, yep change his word, our country into something that our Founding Fathers nor any of us want to happen. His associations all socialists, communist and Marxists have shown us he is much more comfortable with them then good people, liberty and freedom loving people.

His actions are what we see too and they scream out at all of us his intentions. The businesses he has already destroyed as to what they used to be. And the oil industry is another one he wants GONE! His statements about it, his actions ( ignoring the Judge's that have demanded he release the permits ) and his hate for the coal industry too is another clue how he wants to radically change our country and control things......and us.

I call him evil because I think he is. He lies with no conscience, no remorse. He twists information around with ease and his anger toward the American public is shocking and the first time any president has behaved and threatened we the people.....ever.

This oil issue is so huge , because it effects so many industries, so many products we all use day in and day out. By the time a person is out of bed and on their way to work they have already used several products that have come from oil. I typed uses for oil into Google one day and there are hundreds of things we use and don't even think about that have something to do with oil.

So to me obama is doing all of this on purpose, and we have to keep telling people the truth about him and his agenda. I am so sick of the left telling me we need to get rid of oil. sheesh. Like it is stopping salt in ones diet. These people imo are stupid to the max.

Obama Blames Oil Companies for Lack of Domestic Drilling ~ STOP With Your LIES Obama! It Is YOUR Fault!

Obama Blames Oil Companies For Lack Of Drilling


In his Friday press conference to discuss gas prices, President Obama was rather defensive, straining to counter the notion that his administration has been unfriendly to oil drilling, something most people would like to see a lot more of these days.

Where do people get that notion? Perhaps his Interior Department appealing a judge’s ruling that it act on several pending deepwater permits had something to with it.

Obama claimed repeatedly that he is not against drilling, then made the following comments:

There is more we can do, however. For example, right now, the (oil) industry holds leases on tens of millions of acres — both offshore and on land — where they aren’t producing a thing. So I’ve directed the Interior Department to determine just how many of these leases are going undeveloped and report back to me within two weeks so that we can encourage companies to develop the leases they hold and produce American energy. People deserve to know that the energy they depend on is being developed in a timely manner.

In other words, Obama is arguing that the oil companies themselves may be to blame for the fact that there isn’t more drilling. For some reason they’re ignoring making a profit.

It’s a bizarro-world inversion of the usual complaint against oil companies — that they are reckless and all-too eager to despoil pristine lands in search of black gold.


Bill Clinton: Drilling delays 'ridiculous'

Former President Bill Clinton said Friday that delays in offshore oil and gas drilling permits are “ridiculous” at a time when the economy is still rebuilding, according to attendees at the IHS CERAWeek conference.

Clinton spoke on a panel with former President George W. Bush that was closed to the media. Video of their moderated talk with IHS CERA Chairman Daniel Yergin was also prohibited.

But according to multiple people in the room, Clinton, surprisingly, agreed with Bush on many oil and gas issues, including criticism of delays in permitting offshore since last year’s Gulf of Mexico spill.

“Bush said all the things you’d expect him to say” on oil and gas issues, said Jim Noe, senior vice president at Hercules Offshore and executive director of the pro-drilling Shallow Water Energy Security Coalition. But Clinton added, “You’d be surprised to know that I agree with all that,” according to Noe and others in the room.

Clinton said there are “ridiculous delays in permitting when our economy doesn’t need it,” according to Noe and others.

“That was the most surprising thing they said,” Noe said.

The two former presidents both generally agreed on the need to get offshore drilling workers back on the job.


The return of "drill, baby, drill"


"The Obama Administration has consistently blocked American energy production that would lower costs and create new jobs," House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday. "They've cancelled leases for new exploration, jeopardized new nuclear energy, and imposed a de facto drilling moratorium. They've even pushed a 'cap and trade' national energy tax that the president himself admitted would cause energy costs to 'skyrocket.'"

Boehner was unveiling what he called the American Energy Initiative, a plan that he says will lower gas prices and create new jobs. It entails expanding American energy production, reversing government policies that he says drive up gas prices, and embarking on an "all of the above" strategy for domestic energy production.

Boehner's comments were just one element of a GOP push to attack the Obama administration on gas prices.

On Fox Business Network Thursday, Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso said, "what we're doing is spending millions and millions of dollars and sending that money overseas to people who want to blow us up instead of doing what you know we should do, which is exploring for energy offshore, on federal land, and exploring in Alaska."

Gas Prices Have Gone Up 67 Percent Since Obama Became President...The Weekly Standard

Conservatives have known since forever that it is important to be able to drill. The list on the positive side out weigh anything that the enviros and FREAKS like Obama will say is a reason not to.

Plus those windmills that the left pushes are noisy and also kill tons of birds. Now how weird is that, the very thing the enviros push ( windmills) is killing birds and they claim that there can be no drilling because it is dangerous for certain animals or certain fish and birds. Proving the only thing they care about is killing off the oil industry and jobs NOT animals and birds etcc. Molre lies and obama is a total liar to blame the oil industry for not drilling. I swear I could not hate him more then I do for what he has done about this or not done. sheesh

Bully In Chief Obama Seeks Child-speech Oversight ~ Obama Sent Thugs To Wisc.and Don't Forget His Threats To The American People

White House seeks child-speech oversight

The Daily Caller

Roughly 150 various advocates — lobbyists for gays and lesbians, legislators, White House officials, at least one cabinet secretary and the first lady — gathered around President’s Obama’s bully pulpit in the White House Thursday to cheer for increased government monitoring and intervention in Facebook conversations, in playgrounds and in schoolrooms around the country.

No officials at the televised East Room roll-out of the White House’s anti-bullying initiative suggested any limits to government intervention against juvenile physical violence, social exclusion or unwanted speech. None mentioned the usefulness to children of unsupervised play. None suggested there were any risks created by a government program to enforce children’s approval of other children who are unpopular, overweight, or who declare themselves to be gay, lesbians or transgender.

“It breaks our hearts to think that any child feels afraid every day in the classroom, on the playground, or even online,” first lady Michelle Obama said.

“We’re going to prevent bullying and create an environment where every single one of our children can thrive,” the president said, as he announced a series of government actions intended to fund, guide and pressure state and local officials to adopt regulations and programs that would shield children from insults or social-exclusion as well as from physical harm.

But the lethal risks of additional federal school-yard regulation will be underlined May 2 in a California courtroom. Brandon McInerney was 19 days past his 14th birthday, and living with his divorced father, when he murdered Larry King, by shooting him dead in a classroom, said McInerney’s lawyer, Scott Wippert.

The White House’s East Room meeting did not include any children who spoke out for or against federal oversight. Two grade-school kids who attended, however, were Ryan Thompson and Eric Kanchuger, who have established Channel 6 News. Federal policies intended to help parents tracks their kids’ Facebook conversations is “a bit too much,” said Kanchuger. “It would intrude on our privacy.”

“They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”

Obama to His Followers:
“Get in Their Faces!”

Obama on ACORN Mobs:
“I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”

Obama to His Mercenary Army:
“Hit Back Twice As Hard”

Obama on the private sector:
“We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“

Obama to voters:
Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”

Obama to lib supporters:
“It’s time to Fight for it.”

Obama to Latino supporters:
“Punish your enemies.”

Obama to democrats:
“I’m itching for a fight.”

Obama against bullies???? Then why did he send his union rent-a-mob to Madison, WI.???

Obama is the Bully In Chief and so is Michelle.

No one likes a bully, but after all the threats obama has made, more then I listed above, he needs to be reminded we never forget. No other president of theh USA has ever threatened the American people.

Don't lecture a single American about bullying until you Obama rein in your SEIU Thugs and bully's in WI, OH, IL, and all parts that are attempting to bully and use thuggery to push for Union bills in the States!!!

In fact, Obama, you yourself called the American tea party “racist!” That Sir is bullying the tea party. You hypocrite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obama Has Told People That It Would Be So Much Easier To Be The President of China

President of China? Obama's lament.

Weekly Standard

“Mr. Obama has told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China. As one official put it, ‘No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.’”

“Obama Seeks a Course of Pragmatism in the Middle East,” The New York Times, March 11, 2011.

Mr. Obama is right.

If you’re president of China, people around the world who are fighting for freedom don’t really expect you to help. If you’re president of China, you don’t have to put up with annoying off-year congressional elections, and then negotiate your budget with a bunch of gun-and-religion-clinging congressmen and senators. If you’re president of China, you can fund your national public radio to your heart’s content. And if you’re president of China, when you host a conference on bullying in schools, people take you seriously.

Unfortunately for him and us, Barack Obama is president of the United States. That job brings with it certain special responsibilities. It’s a tough job—maybe tougher than being president of China. But Barack Obama ran for president of the United States. Maybe he should start behaving as one.

Wild Thing's comment......

A really stupid thing for a US president to say.

Sure, it is easier to rule by fiat as an unaccountable dictator than within the pesky constraints of the rule of law. Anyone can be the “leader” if he is willing to murder enough people.

I’m sure Obama dreams of jailing, torturing and executing his critics as they do in China. Doesn’t he ever think about things before he says them? Of course, the MSM won’t so much as raise an eyebrow.

A communist dictator type like Obama would understandably be far more comfortable in a position of power in a ....communist dictatorship.

It’s all about what would be easier for Obama.

Contrast Palin’s choices with his. She has made 100 choices that have made her life less easy, but would better the country. He’d sell us all out just to make things easier for himself.

I wish we could send himi to China and get him off our soil. And then never let him back.

Prayers for all the people there and our troops too which are stationed in Japan. As of this post Fox said 32 people are dead in Japan and they expect more to be found.

As I am working on this post they just announced on FOX that the Pentagon announced that ALL of our service members in Japan are accounted for and they are all safe. Thank you God! The U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet is based in Yokosuka, Japan. They evacuated a couple of the Marine bases there according to Fox just now.

Prayers for our friends in Hawaii and California!!! We lived in Calif. for so many years and then we met a lot of people in Hawaii all the years we went there to work on Magnum P.I. so some extra prayers for all our friends as well.

Army to Punish Nine Officers in Connection With Fort Hood Shootings ~ Start With CIC Obama

Army to Punish Nine Officers in Connection With Fort Hood Shootings

FOX News

The Army announced Thursday it will punish nine officers in connection with the Fort Hood shootings for "leadership failures relating to the career of Maj. Hasan."

Army doctor Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is accused of killing 13 people and wounding 29 others on November 5, 2009, at Fort Hood in Texas.

The Army does not identify the officers who will be punished nor does it reveal their specific punishments. A press release from the Army reads:

"The severity of each action varies depending on case-specific facts and circumstances. In certain cases, it may take several weeks to ensure that each officer is accorded appropriate due process and to take final action. In order to protect the due process rights of the officers involved, the Army will not identify them or provide details of the administrative actions at this time. Upon the completion of all cases, the Army will review whether the release of additional information would be appropriate."

Army Secretary John McHugh has sent a comprehensive review of the incident to Secretary Gates.


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

No one spoke up because they would have been accused of bias against a muslim. Political correctness is a cancer in our country.

The leadership failure began and continues at the White House. Any punishment for this needs to start at the White House . It looks as though the are wanting scapegoats, unless they really name names like OBAMA and Janet DHS Queen.

Hasan worked in the White House at one time and was known to Obama. He was part of a transitions team assigned to the White House. That is how Obama met fellow Muslim Hasan. Hasan’s evaluation at Reed was so poor he wasn’t recommended for promotion but that was overridden. Who ordered Hasan promoted to Major. My guess it was the White House.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stated “we object to—and do not believe—that anti-Muslim sentiment should emanate from this ... This was an individual who does not, obviously, represent the Muslim faith.”

Democrats In Wisconsin Sending Numerous Death Threats To State Sen.'s State Sens. Joe Leibham and Glenn Grothman and Many Other Republicans

This note was Found under State Sen. Glenn Grothman’s office door yesterday

State Sens. Joe Leibham and Glenn Grothman

Death Threats Have Come To: Sen.Kapanke; Sen.Darling; Sen.Cowles; Sen.Ellis; Sen.Fitzgerald; Sen.Galloway; Sen.Grothman; Sen.Harsdorf; Sen.Hopper; Sen.Kedzie; Sen.Lasee; Sen.Lazich; Sen.Leibham; Sen.Moulton; Sen.Olsen Subject: Atten: Death threat!!!! Bomb!!!!

Governor Scott Walker has had death threats.

Republicans Senators death threats by email

And the latest is this note above shoved under their doors.

State Sens. Joe Leibham and Glenn Grothman confirmed Thursday they were among the Republican senators who received a death threat in the wake of a vote to eliminate most collective bargaining rights for public workers.

The threat was sent in an e-mail late Wednesday with the subject, “Death threat!!!! Bomb!!!!” according to a copy of the letter released by Grothman’s office.

Grothman, R-West Bend, said the e-mail is the latest example of “a new height in incivility.” He said in recent weeks he has received obscene phone calls at all hours of the night, been jostled at the Capitol and been shouted down during interviews.

“This is another example of the anger which is being spewed by the government unions,” Grothman said. “This has been all about intimidating, be it the death threats, the screaming in the face, the late night phone calls or the recalls, this has been all about trying to intimidate Republican legislators into bowing to the public unions, and it has only steeled our resolve.”

Grothman said he is hesitant to completely disregard the threat given the volatile atmosphere in Madison. A note shoved under his door Wednesday night said, “The only good Republican is a dead Republican.”

“There’s certainly been angry people around this Capitol who wanted to hit me, so I wouldn’t put anything by this sort of crowd,” Grothman said.

Leibham, of Sheboygan, said the threat came to him via e-mail as well, and his staff contacted law enforcement agencies at the Capitol and in Madison.

“We’ve been getting a lot of e-mail throughout the entire four-week process,” Leibham said. “I think (the threat) was sent to at least eight if not all 18 senators who voted for the bill last evening. I’m not making a real big deal out of it … I’m confident they will look into it and hopefully determine if there’s any seriousness to the threat.”

The letter tells lawmakers to “make your peace with God as soon as possible and say goodbye to your loved ones,” warning they will be killed “due to your actions in the last eight weeks.”

The letter, which is signed, says the writer is working with a group of people and knows where the legislators live. It says legislators may be shot in their homes or killed with bombs placed at locations they frequent.
“We feel that you and the people that support the dictator have to die,” the letter reads. “If you and your goonies feel that it’s necessary to strip the rights of 300,000 people and ruin their lives, making them unable to feed, clothe, and provide the necessities to their families and themselves then We Will ‘get rid of’ (in which I mean kill) you.”

Hmmmmmm so where is Wolf Blitzer and Barack Obama denouncing people doing this and oh yes the civility what's up with that?

Rep. Pete King Defends Muslim 'radicalization' Hearing, Says Critics Are 'in denial'

King defends Muslim 'radicalization' hearing, saying critics are 'in denial'

The Hill

Republicans pushed back on Democratic objections Thursday at a controversial hearing on whether American Muslims should be investigated for radicalized tendencies.

Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee defended his decision to hold the hearing, saying his panel “could not live in denial.”

“I am well-aware that the announcement of these hearings has generated considerable controversy and opposition,” King said at the hearing.

“The committee cannot live in denial, which is what some would have us do when they suggest that this hearing dilute its focus by investigating threats unrelated to al Qaeda.”



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

The hearing was on C-Span so I got to see most of it.

A training outfit, the Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies, based in Alexandria, Virginia, uses experienced FBI, CIA and other former federal agents to conduct its training of about 8,000 national security employees a year.

Walid Phares, who trains on behalf of the center, argues in his writings that jihadists are infiltrating western organisations posing as civil rights advocates: “The most important mission is to further recruit and grow their numbers until the ‘holy moment’ comes.”
Security Studies president, Henry Morgenstern, defended his company’s track record. “We have a very good reputation training law enforcers. We are not a kooky organization.” He said of the report’s authors: “These people (leftie America-haters) are out to weaken the anti-terrorism effort and it’s clearly politically motivated.”

He added: “You cannot whitewash radical Islam – they really do cut people’s heads off, they do carry out honour killings, so we are trying to show law enforcers that this is what they are up against. We are not saying that all Muslims chop people’s heads off.”

Palin Already Booked On Debate Day

Palin already booked on debate day

The Hill

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) will headline a military appreciation event and fundraiser on May 2 in Colorado — the same day as the first GOP presidential primary debate in California.

The potential presidential candidate is scheduled to speak at an event titled "Tribute to the Troops With Sarah Palin" at Colorado Christian University, in the Denver area.

The 7 p.m. Mountain Time event falls on the same day as the NBC News-Politico debate — the first of the GOP primary season — which will be held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif.

John Andrews, a university official, told The Denver Post he was aware of the debate when the college booked the 2008 vice presidential nominee and said he did not expect Palin to attend the debate.

"Presumably, this means she will be doing [the fundraiser] instead of any other engagement on the second," Andrews said.

The announcement comes as Palin continues to grapple with her decision on whether to run for president. Palin said recently she is still undecided.

"You enter a race to win the race, so there are still a lot of considerations that have to be made," she told the BBC in an interview that aired Monday. "We haven't made up our mind or desire to make an announcement yet as to what it is we will be doing."

Palin said the considerations include her ability to match President Obama's fundraising prowess and whether the country would be ready for an "unconventional" candidate like her.

Melissa Giller, a spokeswoman for the Reagan Presidential Library Foundation, told the Post that no likely Republican candidates have committed to attend the debate, which will be moderated by NBC "Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams and Politico editor John Harris.

Palin will not collect an honorarium for the event, Andrews told the Post. According to the event's website, all of its proceeds will be donated to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), which benefits families of deceased soldiers.

"It's not a political day," Andrews said. "It's a day to honor our armed forces."

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

Brian Williams, was the first to get the message out to attack her immediately after her fantastic speech when she was picked for the vice Presidential nominee.

And Politico give me a break. So already we know this first debate is loaded heavy from the left. I would treat NBC “Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams and Politico editor John Harris, like the disgusting poison they are.

I would love to see debates held by Heritage something like that.

Palin is THE game changer and everybody, including the RINO’s and the clowns in the media know it.

January online Townhall poll results:

Sarah Palin - 22.27%

Mitt Romney - 14.48%

Ron Paul - 11.52%

Mike Huckabee - 10.76%

Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder Warns Against Alienating Muslims ~ LOL Oh Really??

Attorney General warns against alienating Muslims

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday warned against alienating the U.S. Muslim community, in a veiled criticism of a congressional probe into the radicalization of Muslims at home.

The House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee will open a series of hearings on Thursday about the increasing terrorism threat against the United States, with the first hearing drawing criticism because of its sole focus on Muslim Americans.

The panel chairman, New York Republican Representative Peter King, has repeatedly criticized, saying the Muslim American community has not cooperated with law enforcement agencies and that some mosques encourage radicalization.

But Holder said that leaders and members of the Muslim community in the United States "have contributed significantly" to resolving cases and also said focusing on a single constituency was risky.

"Tips that we have received, information that has been shared has been critical to our efforts to disrupting plots that otherwise might have occurred," Holder told reporters during a news conference on another issue.

"My focus is on individuals as opposed to communities and I think that is what we need to be focused on, what is it that drives individuals to do certain things," he said. "We don't want to stigmatize, we don't want to alienate entire communities."

King has repeatedly defended the need for the hearings and the focus on Muslims, citing attempts by the militant group al Qaeda and its affiliates to openly recruit Muslims in the United States to launch attacks.

Wild Thing's comment......

Muslilms should worry about alienating us. If there are moderate muslims then they should be all for this hearing and speak out about how they want it done.

There is no threat to America from radical islam. The threat is from islam -PERIOD. islam is evil, its oppressive, its about torture and murder. islam can not coexist with freedom and liberty and that is why it has declared war on America. Islam and the US Constitution are incompatible.

Several years ago Steven Emerson produced for PBS an excellent video titled Jihad In America. Its cameras went directly inside cell groups associated with mosques here in America where eager young Muslims were being recruited for jihad against the United States. Muslim leaders are shown giving speeches about bringing America to its knees through terrorism.... terrorists act in direct obedience to Muhammad, the Qur'an, Allah and Islam.

Know we are with in spirit and prayer Rep. King. Don't give in and don't give up.

From The Audacity of Hope by Barack Hussein Obama: "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

EXCUSE me, but Muslims are the ones that:

Below is information my a page at my website......the page titled......Terroriosts

“Islam is a revolutionary faith that comes to destroy any government made by man. Islam doesn’t look for a nation to be in better condition than another nation. Islam doesn’t care about the land or who own the land.The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power in this world that tries to get in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy.” -Mawlana Abul Ala Mawdudi, founder of Pakistan’s fundamentalist movement

Wisconsin Senate Passes Unioin Bill ~ Democrats MIA

The Wisconsin Senate passed their union tonight 18-1.

The Senate democrats were still hiding in Illinois when the bill was passed.

The outraged leftists are pounding on the chamber door – they’re honking their horns outside the capitol building.


Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate voted Wednesday night to strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from public workers after discovering a way to bypass the chamber’s missing Democrats.

All 14 Senate Democrats fled to Illinois nearly three weeks ago, preventing the chamber from having enough members present to consider Gov. Scott Walker’s so-called “budget repair bill” – a proposal introduced to plug a $137 million budget shortfall.

The Senate requires a quorum to take up any measures that spend money. But Republicans on Wednesday split from the legislation the proposal to curtail union rights, which spends no money, and a special conference committee of state lawmakers approved the bill a short time later.

Governor Scott Walker praised Republicans

Walker said: “In order to move the state forward, I applaud the Legislature’s action today to stand up to the status quo and take a step in the right direction to balance the budget and reform government.”

“The Senate Democrats have had three weeks to debate this bill and were offered repeated opportunities to come home, which they refused. In order to move the state forward, I applaud the Legislature’s action today to stand up to the status quo and take a step in the right direction to balance the budget and reform government. The action today will help ensure Wisconsin has a business climate that allows the private sector to create 250,000 new jobs.”


Here is a video of the guy hollering it’s a violation of the meetings law.An d also the voting for the bill.


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

They needed a quorum of 20 to pass financial bills so they stripped all financial/budgetary portions.

Sen. Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center) casting the no vote.

Gov Walker and the Senate GOP bent over backwards to get the rats to return. They were obviously not planning to return any time soon so the GOP said..."TIMES UP" and made the necessary changes to move ahead without needing the rats to be present.

Democrats have nothing to complain about but they will of course and they will lie as they always do. They had their chance to be present and accounted for which they preferred to run off to Illinois.

Americans will save this country yet! To hell with the commie ‘RATS. We love our country and will not let them destroy it!

Texas Pig Farmer Has Pig Races After His New ( Muslim) Neighbor Tells Himi To Move


Texas Man Stages Pig Races to Protest Islamic Neighbor's Plans to Build Mosque

FOX News

KATY, Texas — When an Islamic group moved in next door and told Craig Baker the pigs on his family's 200-year-old Texas farm had to go, he and his swine decided to fight back.

In protest of being asked to move, Davis began staging elaborate pig races on Friday afternoons — one of the Islamic world's most holy days.

Craig's neighbors, the Katy Islamic Association, have plans to build a mosque and community compound on the 11 acres they purchased alongside his farm.

Baker, 46, a stone-shop owner whose family has owned the farm for two centuries, says the association knew about the pigs when they bought the property, and it's not fair for them to ask him to get rid of the animals.

"I am just defending my rights and my property," Baker said. "They totally disrespected me and my family."

Initially Baker and Kamel Fotouh, the president of the 500-member Islamic Association, were on good terms. But things turned sour at a town meeting, where Baker says Fotouh insulted him by asking him to move.

"That was the last straw for me ... calling me a liar, especially in front of three or four hundred people at that meeting," Baker said. "Mr. Fotouh said it would be a good idea if I considered packing up my stuff and moving out further to the country."

It was Betsy Liley, NPR's senior director of institutional giving, who was meeting with another NPR executive, senior Vice President Ron Schiller, when an undercover recorder was running.

In the recording, the two executives discuss how a donor wanted to contribute to coverage of climate change, but only if just one side of the story – the side promoting man-made climate change as fact – is reported.

Liley calls it "complicated."

"There's a political question, and there is a scientific question, and we were talking to him about supporting the science desk. And so we've gone back to the science editor and asked how have you planned to cover this?"

She said the science desk appears to cover climate change as established science but noted that the political desk in Washington may move into other areas.

"So it's more complicated than saying, 'Where was Obama born? In Hawaii or not? Is he an American citizen or not?'" she explains.

"There's still a question about whether he is and that is a fact," she said. "But I think the challenge in our society now is questioning facts. It's not opinions that we're debating. It's what are the facts? Is the world flat? I mean is that the next question we're going to debate?"

As the Washington Times put it, Liley spilled "the birther beans during an undercover sting."

"We're not covering the birthers. We are not covering them," Liley said. "There's a whole movement within the conservative group about questioning something that Obama has said as fact, 'I was born in Hawaii, when it was a United States state.' The group that questions this, some of whom are commentators ... I don't know any who are Democrats, but they are primarily conservative commentators and people who follow them question if Obama is [a natural-born citizen]."

Liley also cites a "stunning" study revealing that "51 percent of Americans now believe that Obama was not born in the United States."

WND has reported on multiple legal challenges to Obama over his status as a natural-born citizen. The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."

Some of the lawsuits question whether Obama actually was born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama's American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time.

Other challenges have focused on Obama's citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born.

Still others question his citizenship by virtue of his attendance in Indonesian schools during his childhood and question what passport he used to travel to Pakistan three decades ago.

Adding fuel to the fire is Obama's persistent refusal to release documents that could provide answers as well as his appointment of a team of lawyers to defend against all requests for release of his documentation.

Others who have raised questions include Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Chris Mathews, Laura Ingraham and a long list of media and political personalities.

Obama Insists to Donors He was Born in Hawaii

Obama Tells Democrat Donors: “I was Born in Hawaii. . . . I Can’t Change those Facts”

FOX Nation

March 08, 2011

Obama addressed a group of 152 Democratic donors at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The walls were lined with enormous original oil portraits from the 16th century and guests are seated around about 24 round tables. ...

Obama says that America should not be about the "haves and the have nots."

"That's not the America that I envision for Malia and Sasha," Obama said. "And so we're going to have a lot of work to do."

Calling for Democrats and Republicans to put fighting aside, Obama quips: "I was born in Hawaii, what can I say. I can't change those facts."

After seeing the story that Mark sent and the one where obama brings up his birth in the same day LOL He threw that in for a reason. Absolutely! I think he is worried about it and knows it will be a topic of this next campaign he has.

Sure obama was born here LOL not.....if he was then why pray tell is he spending millions of dollars fighting lawsuits that only seek proof of his citizenship?

Democrat Led Senate Rejects Bill Defunding Planned Parenthood

U.S. Senate rejects bill defunding Planned Parenthood

Life Site News

In a 44-56 vote, the U.S. Senate has voted against a budget bill crafted by House Republicans that would have eliminated federal funding of Planned Parenthood.

The Democrat-led Senate also failed to pass its own budget bill, which contained much fewer spending cuts and maintained the abortion giant’s funding.

The vote marks the first stage of what promises to be a drawn-out battle between two opposite visions for the 2011 fiscal year, as well as between pro-life and pro-abortion forces fiercely gunning for or against the amendment de-funding Planned Parenthood.

Obama has promised to veto the House version as it stands.

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

U.S. Senate Roll Call Votes 112th Congress

The 3 republican no votes were Rand Paul, Jim DeMint, and Mike Lee.

DeMint’s office in D.C.said.....He voted not to defund because the rest of the bill was about setting the budget for the YEAR, and it only allowed for an approximately 4% cut. The staffer said it is the GOP’s intention to continue to put the defunding in other bills.

Obama Against Fair Elections In The United States He Is Directly Working to Recall Wisconsin Republicans

Team Obama Directly Working to Recall Wisconsin Republicans


From Joshua Culling

How’s this for states’ rights?

This morning, Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said in a radio interview that President Obama’s political team is directly involved in burgeoning efforts to recall Republican elected officials (emphasis on the word “elected,” as in chosen by the people of Wisconsin in a democratic vote four months ago):

“There’s many people that are beginning to believe this is a delay tactic by the Democrats in the Senate so that these recall elections can be organized by the Obama team out of Chicago, which they are, as we start to do the research on the people that have filed the petition,” Fitzgerald told Newsradio 620 WTMJ’s “Wisconsin’s Morning News.”

When asked whether Fitzgerald knew that for a fact, he responded, “The organizer against (River Hills Republican Senator) Alberta Darling definitely has direct links to the Obama camp. There’s no doubt about it. These guys might be out until June. Unfortunately, what they’re trying to do is flip the majority, and I think that’s becoming very evident.”

This is yet another coup for the state of Illinois. The Senate Democrat caucus has been vacationing in the state for 18 days, providing some much-needed stimulus to the Quinn Economy. Now it has surfaced that they will pay Obama's Chicago team to organize a recall effort.

The President's message to the American people is simple: I don't care about balancing the federal budget. I don't care what the voters had to say in November. I will spend money to depose of elected officials I don't like. Because Big Labor told me to.


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

IMPEACH HIM! But it won't happen. I really believe obama could massacre entire families and practically nobody would care. Nobody except conservatives.

WTH, spending federal tax dollars to interfere with state governments!

How, in God’s Name, can they get away with this? Is there nothing that can be done to indict these derelict DEMS?

Apply this to the 2012 elections. Obama and the dems will not step down and transfer power if we win. Now ask yourself why so many candidates on our side don’t seem to high on running.

God help us and God help America. Sorry to be negative but we are dealing with pure evil regarding obama.

As Of Today 1,040 Waivers Handed Out By Obama For HIS Obamacare

The Department of Health and Human Services has found a way to top itself. On Friday, Kathleen Sebelius issued another 126 waivers, bringing the total to 1,040. All told, health care waivers now cover 2.6 million Americans.

Obama administration keeps giving out Obamacare waivers, despite new Republican spotlight

The Daily Caller

March 7, 2011

Although House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Rep. Fred Upton, Michigan Republican, is about to launch a congressional investigation into Obamacare waiver selection, the administration continues to approve waivers from health-care law for labor unions and others. In fact, since Upton first requested documentation from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in late January, the administration has issued 307 more Obamacare waivers, 47 of which for labor unions. That brings the total number of waivers to 1,040. Labor unions received 269 of those.

That means unions received about 26 percent of all waivers the administration has given out, but only about 12 percent of workers nationwide are unionized.

Maine Granted Waiver Of A Key Provision In Obama's Socialized Medicine 'Obamacare'

Maine gets break in federal health care overhaul


PORTLAND, Maine - The federal government Tuesday granted Maine a waiver of a key provision in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, citing the likelihood that enforcement could destabilize the state's market for individual health insurance.

The U.S. Health and Human Services department said in a letter it would waive the requirement that insurers spend 80 cents to 85 cents of every premium dollar on medical care and quality improvement. Instead, the letter said, the state could maintain its 65 percent standard for three years, with the caveat that HHS intends to review the figures after two years.

The decision makes Maine the first state to receive a waiver of the requirement. Similar requests are pending from Kentucky, Nevada and New Hampshire.

In seeking the waiver, Maine Insurance Superintendent Mila Kofman feared that one of three major insurers offering individual plans in Maine would withdraw from the market altogether if the federal requirement remained in place. The insurer, MEGA Life and Health Insurance Co., has 37 percent of the state's individual market.

Arlington A Tribute

The music is Trace Adkin's "Arlington".

I never thought that this is where I'd settle down,
I thought I'd die an old man back in my hometown,
They gave me this plot of land, me and some other men,
for a job well done.

There's a big white house sits on a hill just up the road,
The man inside he cried the day they brought me home,
They folded up a flag, and told my mom and dad, 'We're proud of your son'.

And I'm proud to be on this peaceful piece of property,
I'm on sacred ground and I'm in the best of company,
I'm thankful for those thankful for the things I've done,
I can rest in peace, I'm one of the chosen ones,
I made it to Arlington.

I remember daddy brought me here when I was eight,
We searched all day to find out where my granddad lay,
And when we finally found that cross,
He said, 'Son this is what it cost, to keep us free'.
Now here I am a thousand stones away from him,
He recognized me on the first day I came in,
And it gave me a chill, when he clicked his heels, and saluted me.

And I'm proud to be on this peaceful piece of property,
I'm on sacred ground and I'm in the best of company,
And I'm thankful for those thankful for the things I've done,
I can rest in peace, I'm one of the chosen ones,
I made it to Arlington.

And every time I hear, twenty-one guns,
I know they brought another hero home, to us.

We're thankful for those thankful for the things we've done,
We can rest in peace, 'cause we were the chosen ones,
We made it to Arlington, yea, dust to dust
Don't cry for us, we made it to Arlington.

Rep. Pete King Receives Barrage Of Threats ~ These Threats Prove Why Hearing Should Be Done

Congressman receives threats on eve of hearings on Muslims in America

The Hill

Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) is receiving a barrage of threatening phone calls, some from overseas, which has led to increased police protection ahead of Thursday’s hearing on the possible radicalization of American Muslims.

King told The Hill that he’s not concerned about his safety and that the hearing, which will examine whether the Muslim community in the U.S. is being targeted by terrorist groups to carry out attacks, will proceed as scheduled
There were some threats from overseas and a number of other remarks,” said King, the chairman of House Homeland Security Committee.

“Whatever threat analysis police have done, they believe I warrant security. I don’t ask for it and I certainly don’t turn away any security that police think I should have. I leave it up to them.”

Added security is coming from the Nassau County Police Department and the New York City department for the hearing, King said.

The hearing is expecting a bevy of protesters and is taking RSVPs from the press because it expects such high attendance.

The White House, as if anticipating the potential for damage control on relations with the Muslim American community, sent President Obama’s deputy national security adviser, Denis McDonough, to address the All Dulles Area Muslim Society on Sunday in Northern Virginia.

“Our challenge, and the goal that President Obama has insisted that we also focus on, is on the front end [of] preventing al Qaeda from recruiting and radicalizing people in America in the first place,” McDonough said. “And we know this isn’t the job of government alone. It has to be a partnership with you.”

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

The nerve of Obama, he is more worried about offending HIS muslims then he is the safety of Peter King. OH wait.........that's right, Obama could care less about NON Muslim's typical of this POS Obama.

So Muslims is there one of you out there in obamaland that will come forward and say you agree with King and want this hearing to be done. That you do not want to hinder it in anyway. That you love America and are against the muslim terrorists???????????? tap tap tap...waiting....waiting......tap tap tap...................

NPR Muslim Brotherhood Investigation


Independent journalist James O’Keefe has released the latest in his series of undercover investigative videos. In this production, Senior VP of Development of the NPR Foundation, Ron Schiller, is shown discussing a potential donation from a phony Muslim Brotherhood front group set-up by O’Keefe’s team. While discussing the importance of NPR, Mr. Schiller expresses his views on conservatives, the Tea Party, Republicans, Zionist and much more.”

NPR's soon-to-be-departing senior vice president for fundraising Ron Schiller is seen and heard on a videotape released this morning telling two men who were posing as members of a fictitious Muslim Education Action Center Trust that:

"The Tea Party is fanatically involved in people's personal lives and very fundamental Christian — I wouldn't even call it Christian. It's this weird evangelical kind of move."

"Tea Party people" aren't "just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. I mean, it's scary. They're seriously racist, racist people."

"I think what we all believe is if we don't have Muslim voices in our schools, on the air ... it's the same thing we faced as a nation when we didn't have female voices." In the heavily edited tape, that comment followed Schiller being told by one of the men that their organization "was originally founded by a few members of the Muslim Brotherhood in America." There's no sign in the edited tape that Schiller reacted in any way after being told of the group's alleged connection to an Islamic group that appeared to be connected with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood.

That NPR "would be better off in the long run without federal funding," a position in direct conflict with the organization's official position.

Schiller is also heard laughing when one of the men jokes that NPR should be known as "National Palestinian Radio."

NPR places Schiller on administrative leave over O’Keefe video


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

NPR ‘appalled’ by former exec’s comments LOL Nope I am not buying that.

Legal Workers Line Up for Restaurant Jobs After Sheriff Joe Raids

Legal Workers Line Up for Restaurant Jobs After Sheriff Joe Raids

Jobs Americans Won't Do? "Crap", said one woman with a Masters degree willing to take the $8/hour jobs at Phoenix' Pei Wei Chinese joints after Sheriff Joe Arpaio liberated them with raids arresting dozens for identity theft crimes. For every illegal with a job, there's an American without one. Thanks Sheriff Joe!

Twenty-six people were arrested, and deputies also headed to private residences to sniff out more illegals. According to an MCSO records check, a suspected 121 out of 800 Pei Wei employees countywide have used falsified documents to work there.

All of this comes on the heels of raids at such places as McDonald's and Sizzler. Illegals have long been entrenched in the restaurant industry with their fiake ID's.

Sheriff Joe is the American workers friend. For every illegal with a job their are hundreds if not thousands of people willing to take that job today thanks to Obama and his economic polices.

The Islamic Demolition of the Statue of Liberty

The Islamic Demolition of the Statue of Liberty

Shariah 4 America

One of the founding principles of the Islamic constitution is to ensure that all sovereignty and supremacy belongs solely to God; the Shari’ah is a practical manifestation of this sovereignty and supremacy because it seeks to establish His command in society.

The status of a nation subsequently does not depend on its number, strength or technological advancement, but rather how much it submits to the commands of God. When a nation seeks to be free from such commands, then ultimately it will meet its destruction.

The Statue of Liberty, designed by Frederic Bartholdi, stands on Liberty Island in New York Harbor; representing Libertas, the Roman (false) goddess of Freedom, it is symbolic of the rebellious nature of the US constitution that elevates the command of man over the command of God.

In Islam, the public veneration of idols and statues is strictly prohibited. This has forced sincere Muslims to develop realistic plans that will aid in the removal of the Statue of Liberty.

Due to the scale of the task at hand, it is highly likely that rigorous safety checks will need to be employed before the demolition of the Statue of Liberty can commence; thus as a temporary measure, it is proposed that a large burkha is used to cover the statue, thereby shielding this horrendous eye sore from public view as well as sending a strong message to its French creators.

Post demolition, it is recommended that a minaret be built as a fitting replacement, allowing the glorification of God to be proclaimed daily as well as act as a powerful reminder of the superiority of Islam over all other ways of life.

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

Take a look at their Home page where they have other articles and videos.

This is also from their website:

"Sharia4America -One of the primary targets for immediate reconstruction in the US is the White House; originally designed by Irish architect James Hoban, this building holds significant symbolic value in representing centuries of repression under man-made law. Unlike the British burning of Washington, one of the practical proposals for the redevelopment of the White House under Islam will be to see it converted into a flourishing mosque."

First of all they LIE about God and Islam. Then they LIE when they say they have permission to demolish the Statue of Liberty. If it is true they have permission then why wouldn't they post the permit proudly at their site. Not sure if this is a hoax or not. But either way it should be looked into by our FBI .

I took it seriously at first, which is why I did more research, and frankly they lost me with the whole burkha on the statue thingy, and taking “rigorous safety measures” before demolition. Who knows — it may be serious, and we’ll just have to keep an eye on it. I believe there’s a serious movement to implement Islamic law worldwide.

If it IS a fake site meaning just set up as a spoof type of thing , ask yourself this - who or what kind of person sets this kind of site up as “satire”, and why? I mean, where are they coming from in terms of their feelings about this country, to find such a thing humorous.

I think it is important to know about things like this. IMO when dealing with Islam how can we ever know how much is a test to see if it goes noticed or not . How much we will let them get away with type of thing.

If it is for real, then talk about poking a finger in the eye of the sleeping giant! If they were to destroy the Statue of Liberty the can of whoop ass they would open would boggle their minds. Listen up you freaking Muslims and know we can take out YOUR big black cube in Mecca .....ZAP without missing a beat or a blink of ones eyes. BOOB K-POW! Gone !

That would be the correct response to such a heinous act, but 9-11 was only taken seriously by half our country and that half has already moved on. Where are all of the destroyed mosques? Why isn't Dearborn, MI a ghost town.

Sarah Palin's Gun-toting Stalker Arrested By FBI 50 Miles From Politician's Home

Shawn R. Christy, right, looks over court documents Wednesday with his mother, Karen, center, and father, Craig, at the family’s home in McAdoo.

Sarah Palin's gun-toting stalker arrested by FBI 50 miles from politician's home

Daily Mail

A teenager who sent threatening letters to right-wing US politician Sarah Palin has been arrested in her home state of Alaska.

Shawn Christy, 19, from Pennsylvania, had been issued a court order in October warning him to keep away from the Republican former-vice presidential candidate.

But Mrs Palin’s family have revealed that Mr Christy was held by the FBI in Anchorage, 50 miles from her home town of Wasilla. Authorities have ordered him to return to Pennsylvania.

Mr Christy had told family members he planned to travel to Wasilla to try and get the restraining order against him dismissed.

Last month the teenager filed a legal motion to remove the six-month restraining order, imposed after he sent the 46-year-old former governor threatening emails and letters.

He even sent receipts from a gun purchase to Mrs Palin and her longtime friend, Kristan Cole.

Coming after the attack by a deranged 22-year-old gunman on Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, the threat caused alarm in the former vice presidential candidate’s camp.

McAdoo man admits threatening Sarah Palin

Republican Herald

A court document filed on behalf of Palin in district court in Anchorage, Alaska, states that Shawn R. Christy had been threatening and stalking her through phone and e-mail communications.

According to the court transcript, Palin testified by telephone that she feared for her life and for her family's safety.

"Bottom line is, he is crazy and could kill me," Palin said in the transcript. "He wants me dead."

In an interview Wednesday night at his McAdoo home, Christy said he tried to contact former presidential candidate U.S. Sen. John McCain and Palin, McCain's running mate, because he believed the U.S. Secret Service had tampered with his cell phone.

Christy said he began making threats to get their attention and have his phone fixed.

"It wasn't the brightest idea," Christy said Wednesday.

The document alleges Christy tried to get in touch with Palin numerous times, made references to having guns and said he would be coming to Alaska and she should "watch her back." Christy also claimed to have a sexual relationship with Palin and threatened to sexually assault her, the document states.

At the court hearing Monday, Palin also testified that Christy believes he has a relationship with her daughter, Willow, and has brought up the girl's name.

The Secret Service investigated and found that Christy did make threats to Palin, the document states.

A similar restraining order was granted to a friend of Palin, Kristen Cole, 48, of Alaska, effective Monday. Both orders state Palin and Cole believe Christy to be delusional.

According to the court document, Cole stated that even after asking Christy to stop contacting her in 2009, he continued to do so, sometimes every few weeks and sometimes daily in an attempt to be put in touch with Palin. The document also states that Christy tried to arrange meetings with Cole and Palin, threatened Cole and once told her he, "tried to follow the Bible but had evil and wickedness in him."

Another Obama Submission to Islam ~ White House Praises Muslims Ahead of House Hearing

Religious leaders, community members and activists took to the streets Sunday in New York to protest upcoming congressional hearings, convened by House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King, on "the radicalization of American Muslims."

Congress is scheduled to begin the hearings this week under the direction of King, R-New York.


White House praises Muslims ahead of House hearing

STERLING, Va. Muslim Americans are not part of the terrorism problem facing the U.S. - they are part of the solution, a top White House official said Sunday at a Washington-area mosque.

Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough set the Obama administration's tone for discussions as tensions escalate before the first in a series of congressional hearings on Islamic radicalization. The hearings, chaired by New York Republican Peter King, will focus on the level of cooperation from the Muslim community to help law enforcement combat radicalization.

The majority of the recent terror plots and attempts against the U.S. have involved people espousing a radical and violent view of Islam. Just a few weeks ago a college student from Saudi Arabia who studied chemical engineering in Texas was arrested after he bought explosive chemicals online. It was part of a plan to hide bomb materials inside dolls and baby carriages and blow up dams, nuclear plants or the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush.

King said the Muslim community could and should do more to work with law enforcement to stop its members from radicalizing and recruiting others to commit violence.

"I don't believe there is sufficient cooperation" by American Muslims with law enforcement, King said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "Certainly my dealings with the police in New York and FBI and others say they do not believe they get the same - they do not give the level of cooperation that they need."


The White House is close to finalizing a strategy for countering violent extremism McDonough leads a working group of 13 federal agencies and offices - including the National Counterterrorism Center and the departments of Defense, Education, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Justice and State - focused on finding ways to confront the problem.

On Sunday, McDonough said the strategy would involve continuing efforts to understand the process of radicalization, as well as further outreach to Islamic communities in the United States. He also promised further efforts to dispel "misperceptions about our fellow Americans who are Muslim."

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

The White House on Sunday praised American Muslims for helping fight violent extremism

Yeah? When? Where? How? What a bunch of total BS!

Thank God this anti-American, anti-America, anti-Freedom, anti-Constitution, anti-Free Market president will (hopefully) be out of office in less than two years.

Very Impressive Michele Bachmann on Meet the Press

GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachmann appearing of Meet the Press with David Gregory.

Meet The Press: David Gregory Irked by Michelle Bachmann Emphasis on Secret $105 Billion ObamaCare Funding


Bachmann said she is “hopeful” that an agreement can be reached with Democrats to avert a shutdown of the Government. But Bachmann said revelations of funding to implement ObamaCare slipped into the ObamaCare Bill make it difficult to take the Obama Administration seriously. Gregory told Bachmann he wanted to stick to a narrow discussion of budget issues. But Bachmann would not stop talking about the $105 Billion already appropriated in the ObamaCare Bill. She said the money “has to be given back before we can start any other discussions.”

Bachmann said she would NOT support raising the debt ceiling, saying that would only give Congress a license to spend more money.

Bachmann said Obama’s handling of the Libyan Crisis has been “lacking.”

She said she has made no decision about a 2012 run for President. Bachmann stood by her remarks saying Obama actions are that of a “gangster government.”

REP. MICHELE BACHMANN: ...There was a Congressional Research Service report that just was issued in February, and we discovered that secretly, unbeknownst to members of Congress, over $105 billion was hidden in the Obamacare legislation to fund the implementation of Obamacare. This is something that wasn't known. This money was broken up, hidden in various parts of the bills. And we have worked very hard to discover $61 billion in cuts that we could put forward, get to the president. So, in effect, David, we've taken one step forward and two steps back because we've found now that $105 billion had already been implemented.

MR. GREGORY: All right. But that--but, Congresswoman, you heard the president this week offer...

Notice how often during the interview that Ms Bachmann keeps returning to the topic of the $105 billion of ObamaCare funding during the interview which is countered in each instance by David Gregory desperately trying to change the subject.

MR. GREGORY: We are back, joined now by the head of the tea party caucus in the House of Representatives, Republican Congresswoman from Minnesota Michele Bachmann. Welcome to MEET THE PRESS.

REP. MICHELE BACHMANN (R-MN): Thank you, David.

MR. GREGORY: Nice to have you. You heard the chief of staff, Bill Daley, say that he's optimistic that it's possible to avert a government shutdown. Are you as optimistic as he is?

REP. BACHMANN: Well, I'm hopeful. I don't think anyone wants to see the government shut down, but it is shocking the revelations of all the money that's been spent. There was a Congressional Research Service report that just was issued in February, and we discovered that secretly, unbeknownst to members of Congress, over $105 billion was hidden in the Obamacare legislation to fund the implementation of Obamacare. This is something that wasn't known. This money was broken up, hidden in various parts of the bills. And we have worked very hard to discover $61 billion in cuts that we could put forward, get to the president. So, in effect, David, we've taken one step forward and two steps back because we've found now that $105 billion had already been implemented.

MR. GREGORY: All right. But that--but, Congresswoman, you heard the president this week offer...

REP. BACHMANN: Or appropriated.

MR. GREGORY: accommodation to the states to opt out of the individual mandate, where necessary, to tailor it toward their own states.

REP. BACHMANN: Well, David...

MR. GREGORY: Why isn't that the sort of--the give that Republicans wanted?

REP. BACHMANN: David, that's not a give at all. In effect, all that is, is a pretext for implementing a single-payer plan. If you--if you recall, the president's entire statement, he said the states can opt out as long as they stay within the, the requirements of all of Obamacare unless they want to go with a single payer--again, from the very beginning it has been said that Obamacare is a crime against democracy. It has been a deception from the beginning. Remember, the president told us it was a mandate, not a tax. Now in the federal court he's arguing it's a tax, not a Band-Aid.

MR. GREGORY: Will you--I want to stick with the...

REP. BACHMANN: We were also told that our premiums would go down $2,500 and instead, they're spiking up by 20 and 40 percent.

MR. GREGORY: Let me get in here, Congresswoman.

REP. BACHMANN: This has been a fraud.

MR. GREGORY: Let me get in here. I want to stick with the, the narrow budget questions. Are you willing to vote to shut down the government over some of these add-ons to these spending bills, to defund funding for the healthcare legislation, for Planned Parenthood, for the EPA?

REP. BACHMANN: I think this deception that the president and Pelosi and Reid put forward with, with appropriating over $105 billion needs to be given back to the people. There was no debate. There was no discussion. $105 billion is a lot of money. You can't just slip that into a bill and not tell members of the House and not tell members of the Senate, and then when they go to vote for the bill, did it just slip Harry Reid's mind to not tell the senators that this was in the bill?

MR. GREGORY: Congresswoman, my question is a very, is a very direct one: Will you vote to shut down the government over those riders?

REP. BACHMANN: I think that President Obama needs to give back that $105 billion that they already appropriated. They have tied the hands of Congress for the next eight years, David. They already appropriated this money. Members of Congress didn't even know this money was in the bill because we couldn't read the bill before it was passed because it wasn't given to us but hours before we had to vote for it. That's why Speaker Pelosi famously said we have to pass the bill to know what's in it. Members of Congress weren't even given the courtesy of time to read the bill. This $105 billion has to be given back before we can start any other discussions.

MR. GREGORY: Let me ask, let me ask you about some tea party criticism of Speaker Boehner over how far the cuts have gone. The USA Today reported on this on Friday, I'll put it up. "Tea Party leader blasts Boehner over cuts. The founder of one of the largest Tea Party groups said House Speaker Boehner looks like a `fool' ... because he has not cut enough from the budget.

"Judson Phillips ... [the] founder of the Tea Party Nation, Boehner's inability to negotiate," he said, "larger cuts should prompt the Tea Party movement to run a candidate against [him] in 2012 in a GOP primary.

"`The Tea Party movement sprang up in '09 as a reaction to insane government spending,' Phillips wrote on his blog on Wednesday. `In 2010, the American people spoke, demanding change. Everyone realizes that the level of spending cannot be sustained. John Boehner did not get that message.'" Has Boehner failed the tea party?

REP. BACHMANN: The main message that's going across the Internet today among members of the tea party, they are outraged about this $105 billion that was deceptively put in the Obamacare bill.

MR. GREGORY: Congresswoman, you've made, you've made your point.

REP. BACHMANN: That's what they're focused on.

MR. GREGORY: I'm asking you a direct question here about whether you think, as head of the tea party caucus, whether Boehner has failed to live up to the tea party's expectations.

REP. BACHMANN: I think what we're--we--what we're trying to do as Republicans in the House is look for every place we possibly can to cut spending. We've identified $100 billion in cuts off of the president's proposed budget, $60 billion if you compare it to the 2010 budget. So we have done our part to look for cuts. But we can't be--we can't end there. We have to also demand that we claw back the $105 billion that was deceptively already appropriated by President Obama.

MR. GREGORY: The, the speaker has said that it would be irresponsible not to raise the debt limit, as will be called for soon. Will you agree with him on that and do that?

REP. BACHMANN: I am not in favor of raising the debt ceiling. In the last 10 years we have raised the debt ceiling 10 times. We are just giving the Congress a license to keep on spending. And one thing the American people are demanding because they want to see jobs created, they want to see the economy get on a back--good footing. In order to do that, government has to take less so that the American people can keep more.

MR. GREGORY: The issue of the tea party and backlash among voters against the tea party is an interesting area because conservatives and certainly leaders and tea party folks have said, "Look, there was a mandate from the 2010 election, and that was to cut spending." And yet, you have this from--analysis from our Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, written by the Wall Street Journal on Thursday: "Among those most fearing spending cuts," they reported, "were younger voters, independents, seniors, and suburban women--groups that include many swing voters in national elections, who potentially could turn against the GOP.

"`It may be hard to understand why someone would try to jump off a cliff' to solve the debt crisis, [pollster] Mr. [Bill] McInturff said of his fellow Republicans, `unless you understand that they are being chased by a tiger, and that tiger is the tea party.'" Is the tea party chasing the broader GOP off the cliff?

REP. BACHMANN: You know, I think that the political left has been very afraid of the tea party movement because it is not necessarily political. It's not Democrats or Republicans. It's made up of a very broad-based coalition. It's made up of people who want the country to work again. They believe that we're taxed enough already, the government shouldn't spend more money than what its taking in, and that each of the three branches of government should act within the jurisdictional limitations of the Constitution. That's a broad-based group of people. They just want our country to work again. And I think that that coalition is hanging together more strongly now than ever.

So now that Congress is searching for ways to cut the budget, a very good place to start would be with the 105 BILLION dollars in secret ObamaCare funding, However, David Gregory would rather stubbornly stick to his script about supposed dissension between Tea Party members and the GOP as well other relatively trivial matters.

Perhaps someday David Gregory can bring himself to actually say the words: $105 BILLION.

Sen. Mitch McConnell Followed John Kerry On CBS' Bob Schieffer Show and Gave a Great Response

Sen. Mitch McConnell tells CBS’ Bob Schieffer he does not believe Obama is serious about addressing the budget. McConnell said he has had a number of private conversations with the President and Vice President and saw no willingness from them to do anything difficult.

"Where's the president? Where's the leadership," the Republican Senator from Kentucky asks, along with another question for John Kerry: "What planet is he living on?"

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

The longer version of the interview Schieffer tried to get McConnell to agree with Kerry or at least to show weakness, but he didn't. This is something I got so sick of the last several years how when Republicans have a chance to speak up they wimp out. I wanted to share this clip with you where McConnell actually did stay strong and he told the truth too. Obama is horrible as a president and for many more reasons that were even stated in this interview, but at least it is a start when we hear those elected on our side speak up.

LIAR Obama Says He Opposes Drilling in Arctic Because It Will Not Lead to Energy Independence

Interior Secretary Says White House Opposes Drilling in Arctic Because It Will Not Lead to Energy Independence


When asked why the Obama administration opposes drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) given the rising cost of gasoline, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar told that the “drill, baby, drill program” is not going to lead the United States to energy independence.

“We don’t believe that you need to drill everywhere and we don’t believe that the 'drill, baby, drill' program is the way that’s going to get us to the energy independence that we need for America or that will power our economy and that’s why the President has been so clear from day one and we in the Department of Interior have been so clear that what we need to do is need to have a robust energy program that includes a number of different sources of energy and while yes, we are pushing forward with oil and gas development both offshore and onshore which was the subject of much of the hearing today, we’re also moving forward with renewable energy,” he told after testifying before the House Natural Resources Committee about his Department’s FY2012 budget.

“The President has said we are supporting nuclear, we’re support other clean air energy forms and at the end of the day, this is a place where there is hope that perhaps some of the Republicans in the House would come together and say that we can move forward with energy legislation that moves us into this new energy future.”

Salazar was also asked what the White House is saying about drilling in the Gulf.

“What I say is what the White House would say and that is that we are moving forward with an effort to stand up oil and gas drilling in the deep oceans of the gulf and are doing it in a safe and orderly way and that’s reflected in the budget request that we were defending for the President today,” he said.

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

Obama is totally about punishing America for it's past success, and making sure it can never happen again.

We all know that if our country could drill in the Artic and anywhere else our nation has where there would be oil......we would be independent and not only that but can you just imagine the low price of gasoline for Americans.

10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam Contrasted With 10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam Contrasted With 10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

The Truth Wins

10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam

#1 "Islam has always been part of America"

#2 "we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities"

#3 "These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings."

#4 "America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings."

#5 "So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed"

#6 "Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality"

#7 "As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith."

#8 "I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month."

#9 "That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn't. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."

#10 "I also know that Islam has always been a part of America's story."

10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

#1 "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation"

#2 "We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation."

#3 "Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?"

#4 "Even those who claim the Bible's inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages - the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ's divinity - are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life."

#5 "The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics."

#6 From Obama's book, The Audacity of Hope: "I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount."

#7 "I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can't imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That's just not part of my religious makeup."

#8 "Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will--they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths."

#9 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: "If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount."

#10 "I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people."

Aimee Mullins: The Opportunity Of Adversity

Aimee Mullins: The Opportunity Of Adversity

The Blaze

Double amputee Aimee Mullins brings her indomitable spirit to every person she meets. Born without fibulae, Amy’s legs were amputated when she was just a year old. She did not just overcome what could be called adversity, she has excelled in virtually every part of her life.

She was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania and is an American athlete, actress, and fashion model best known for her collegiate-level athletic accomplishments, despite a medical condition that resulted in the amputation of both of her legs.

Mullins was born with fibular hemimelia (missing fibula bones) and, as a result, had both of her legs amputated below the knee when she was a year old. She is a graduate of Parkland High School in Allentown and Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

While attending Georgetown University, she competed against able-bodied athletes in NCAA Division I track and field events. She competed in the Paralympics in 1996 in Atlanta, in which she ran the 100-meter dash in 17.01 seconds and jumped 3.14 meters in the long-jump

If you have 20 minutes to watch her story, you will not be sorry. This was an amazing speech.

Genocidal Obama Says He Would Veto Spending Bill De-Funding Planned

Obama Would Veto Spending Bill De-Funding Planned Parenthood

Life News

President Barack Obama would veto the House-approved long-term spending bill for the federal government that contains the Pence Amendment, a measure that would de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

Because of that provision and other pro-life riders that stop abortion funding globally and in the District of Columbia, the Washington Times indicates “Obama has issued a veto threat on that bill, saying House Republicans’ cuts are unacceptable.”

“Senate Democrats said the non-spending provisions of the bill — such as restrictions on Planned Parenthood and on Obama administration rules and regulations — will also have to be struck,” the Times continues.

That is the current impasse over the federal spending legislation — where House Republicans have adopted a budget-cutting bill with pro-life provisions and where Senate Democrats have not put forward their own legislation whereby pro-life advocates could either negotiate for the pro-life provisions or try to pass amendments to the Senate bill.

Obama issued a statement this week calling for such negotiations: “I’m calling on Democratic and Republican leaders of Congress to begin meeting immediately with the vice president, my chief of staff and budget director so we can find common ground on a budget that makes sure we are living within our means.”

But pro-life Speaker John Boehner says no formal invitation has been extended and Senate Democrats have yet to write a spending bill.

“How do you start a conversation where one house has spoken, but the other house hasn’t?” he said. “Where is the starting point?”

Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, shed light on the situation, talking about the key pro-life provision in the House-approved budget bill that would stop taxpayer funding of abortions in the District of Columbia.

“Until this administration came to town, it was illegal to take money out of our pockets and use it to directly finance the killing of D.C.’s unborn children. That all flew out the window in the 2009 omnibus, when the Democratic leadership insisted on giving District abortion doctors a direct pipeline to government dollars,” he explained.”Thanks to the last Congress, the capital of the free world is also the capital of free abortions. This is incredibly significant now, as House and Senate leaders wrestle over the new budget.”

“As part of the continuing resolution that House members passed last week, the District would go back to the way things were before President Obama, when there was a freeze on D.C. taxpayer-funded abortion. That’s all up in the air, now that both parties can’t seem to come to an agreement on budget cuts,” he said. “The Left’s version of a “clean bill” is still awash in abortion funding.”

Perkins hopes the efforts to stop abortion funding will stay prominent on the minds of Republicans during the budget negotiations.

“Nobody wants to see the government shut down, but there are some issues–like taxpayer-funded abortion–where the facts have prevailed and over 70% of Americans say no,” he said. “Every week that Congress puts off these budget talks is a week that you and I are directly funding abortion. Contact your leaders and tell them the cradle of liberty is no place for the government to take out a contract on the unborn.”

America Bashers Felipe Calderon and Barack Hussein Obama Mouth Off Again

Mexican President Felipe Calderon, during his visit to Washington, D.C., this week, indicated that “anti-American” sentiment is growing in Mexico because of how the people there view Americans’ perception of illegal immigration.


Prior to going forward with immigration reform in the United States, “We need to change the general perception inside the public opinion in America and the public opinion in Mexico,” said Calderon.

“My most serious concern is that bad feelings are growing on both sides of the border,” he added. “The anti-American feeling in Mexico is growing again.”

Meanwhile, he said, “the anti-Mexican or anti-Hispanic, or Latino, or immigrant feelings are growing here [in the United States].”

“What we need to do is remember each other – that we are neighbors, we are nice, and we are human persons,” said Calderon. “We contribute to each other’s prosperity.”

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

Why the hell doesn’t this maggot, Calderon, make Mexico a place where Mexicans want to live ! I have yet to see a President in Mexico take real pride in their own country and want to make it better and WANT it's people to stay the F home. But NO, they all have insisted WE have to allow their people into our country illegally on purpose and bash us if we fight against it. They never have shown respect for OUR immigration laws and now we have a effing obama that joins them in bashing our country. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As I told President Calderón, I remain deeply committed to fixing our broken immigration system

A big hand should come out of the sky and slap the crap out of every politicians who uses such lying, evasive and dissembling terms as "our broken immigration system" and "comprehensive reform" and all the other nonsense concocted to avoid saying amnesty and citizenship for illegal alien lawbreakers.

Immigration is not “broken.” Immigration laws are willfully not enforced by an anti-American group who wants to dissolve the USA into a type of North American union.

Obama should be prosecuted for selling out this nation!

Bomb Threat At Location of Scott Walker News Conference

WQOW Eau Claire, Wisconsin

On Wednesday, March 2, 2011, Eau Claire Police arrested Patrick James Knauf, on suspicion of threatening a bomb scare. Knauf is alleged to have called Heartland Aviation, a private business on the grounds of the Chippewa Valley Regional Airport, and told the receptionist that he was "going to bomb that place tonight."

Following the arrest, the Chippewa County District Attorney's Office was presented with results of a preliminary investigation. The investigation, however, is dynamic and on-going. On Thursday March 3, 2011, Eau Claire Police detectives executed a search warrant on the residence of Patrick James Knauf. Further, investigators are examining telephone records, and conducting follow up interviews.

Currently, the investigation reveals that Patrick James Knauf participated in a public demonstration at the Chippewa Valley Regional Airport on Monday, February 28, 2011 and / or Wednesday, March 2, 2011. Individuals with information about Patrick James Knauf's statements or conduct at those demonstrations, are asked to contact the Eau Claire Police Department's confidential tipster line at (715) 839-4982.

Pending a final charging decision, Patrick James Knauf has been released on a $3000 signature bond; and ordered to have no contact with Heartland Aviation, nor the owners of Heartland Aviation, Larry and Jeff Husby. Knauf is scheduled to return to court on April 19, 2011.

Police reports show Knauf is a day trader, but it's unclear whether he's self-employed or if he works for someone.

Governor Walker has held press conferences at Heartland Aviation twice this week, including one on Wednesday around noon.

This case is considered an active investigation; therefore information being released is limited at this time.

Speaker Boehner Shoots Down Dem Plan To Cut $6.5B and Boehner Also Promises Obama GOP Cover On Entitlement Reform ~ Good One!!!

Boehner shoots down Dem plan to cut $6.5B as 'indefensible'

The Hill

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Friday called the Democratic plan to trim $6.5 billion from last year's spending "indefensible and unacceptable."

"Yesterday, the White House and congressional Democrats finally announced their position. Unfortunately, it is little more than the status quo, and the status quo is indefensible and unacceptable,” Boehner said in a statement Friday morning.

“The American people spoke loudly and clearly last November. They want to cut spending to help create a better environment for job creation. Americans have a right to know: When will Democrats get serious about cutting spending?"

House Majority Leader Cantor (R-Va.) also said the Democratic plan "falls short" and is "not a serious attempt to get our fiscal house in order.

Less government spending equals more private sector jobs, and House Republicans applied that principle to our long-term funding measure, H.R. 1," he said in a statement.

The cuts in the Democratic plan come from a wide variety of programs including disaster preparedness, nonproliferation, job training, transportation and wildfire prevention.

They are culled from areas cut in the House seven-month CR that have been identified by the White House as acceptable.

Boehner promises Obama GOP cover if he takes first step on entitlement reform

The Hill

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has privately assured President Obama that House Republicans will not attack him if he makes a proposal to reform entitlement spending, according to sources familiar with the offer.

Moreover, Boehner has personally promised Obama that he will stand side by side with him to weather the strong political backlash expected from any proposal to cut entitlement costs.

So far, Obama has not taken Boehner up on the deal, as Democratic strategists have warned the White House not to cut payments from the Social Security trust fund or to reopen the acrimonious debate over healthcare.

Social Security reform has been prominent in behind-the-scenes talks about entitlement spending because it is relatively easy to reduce its cost projections — at least, compared to the complex morass of healthcare policy reform.

Social Security has been known traditionally as the “third rail” of politics, because grappling with the issue is considered as deadly as touching an electrified subway rail.

President George W. Bush saw his post-election political capital plummet in 2005 after Democrats led by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) excoriated his administration’s proposal to divert a portion of Social Security revenues into private retirement accounts.

Boehner has promised that Republicans will not exploit entitlement reform for political gain if Obama shows leadership on curbing the cost of Social Security and other mandatory spending programs, according to sources familiar with the offer.
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), who is in the midst of negotiating a deficit-reduction package with a bipartisan group of senators, said Republicans would not bite Obama for endorsing entitlement reforms.

“He’s been told by the Speaker that if he stands up to do that, the Speaker will stand up with him,” Coburn said. “The Speaker will go out there with him and say we’ve got to do these things.”

Coburn is in talks with five other senators — two Republicans and three Democrats — to craft a deficit-reduction plan that might include reforms to Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) said entitlement reform won’t happen this year unless Obama takes a leading role on the issue.
“With regard to our long-term unfunded liabilities — the entitlements — we are waiting for presidential leadership,” McConnell said. “We know, and we’ll say again, that entitlement reform will not be done except on a bipartisan basis with presidential leadership.”

The president might be concerned about getting vilified by his own party and its allies.

Labor unions and liberal advocacy groups have waged a blistering lobbying campaign directed at the White House to steer the president away from reform proposals that would cut benefits.

Boehner has now established that he invited the President's leadership on the matter and offered his full support. Boehner’s just boxed Obama up again.


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

Good for Boehner, he didn't fall for the cheap parlor tricks. It really is ridiculous that in this time that instead of offering meaningful spending cuts democrats choose to be deceptive and deceitful.

And regarding Boehner promises Obama GOP cover if he takes first step on entitlement reform. Obama will NEVER reform entitlement spending.... it’s literally the bread and butter of his constituency. Boehner did the smart thing, here: now he can go out and say that even though he promised Obama that the GOP would assist in entitlement reform, Obama didn’t have the guts to tackle a big issue like that. Good move on Boehner's part.

Boehner's offer is an invitation for Obama to commit political suicide.

Brilliant move.

Senate Democrats are willing to fight to keep Obama’s policy “czars” in the White House

Senate Democrats are willing to fight to keep President Barack Obama’s policy “czars” in the White House.

As they rolled out their stopgap 2011 fiscal spending plan Friday, Senate appropriators drew a line in the sand over a House attempt to oust Obama’s senior advisers on policy issues including energy and health care out.

Senate Appropriations Committee Democrats blasted the language as “an intrusive micromanagement of the president’s White House staff via appropriations.”

An amendment attached to the House continuing resolution last month from Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) would cut the salaries for nine so-called policy czars, White House advisers who aren’t subject to Senate confirmation. The rider was adopted by a vote of 249-179.

The amendment “continues the Republican objection to President Obama’s use of ‘czars’ for coordinating policy across government and intentionally hamstrings the White House on interagency coordination of two signature policy areas – health care reform and climate change,” the committee said in a statement.

The jobs Republicans want to slice: White House-appointed advisers on health care, energy, climate, green jobs, urban affairs, the closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention center, oversight of TARP executive compensation, diversity at the Federal Communications Commission and the auto industry manufacturing policy.

Scalise warned last month of “a very disturbing proliferation of czars” under Obama, describing them as “these unappointed, unaccountable people who are literally running a shadow government, heading up these little fiefdoms that nobody can really seem to identify where they are or what they’re doing.” He added, “But we do know that they’re wielding vast amounts of power.”

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

Get rid of these marxist/progressive czars. Defund the EPA. Obama surrounds himself with people who have no respect for America. Defund them & throw them out.

They were not elected and are not needed.

Jesse Jackson Jr: Let's Add the Right to Economic Security to Constitution

FOX Nation

Because FDR says, as Jackson quotes, that true individual freedom can't exist without economic security. So what does Jackson want to add to the Constitution? He quotes FDR again: the right to a family to have a decent home, the right to medical care, and the right to a decent education for every American.

Charles Krauthammer Criticizes Obama for Treating U.S. Troop Shooting in Germany Like "a bus acciden"' ~ Charles is Correct!!

Krauthammer criticizes Obama for treating U.S. troop shooting in Germany like 'a bus accident'

KRAUTHAMMER: "And the fact, when the president came out yesterday and spoke about this, he talked about it as if it was like it was a bus accident, it was a tragedy, It is incomprehensible why he cannot even say out loud this could have been a jihadist attack, part of the war on terror. This was attack on military abroad, an attack on our country, an act of war by a terrorist enemy and if a president can’t speak to that, what does it say against moderate Muslims around the world against jihad and here a president that won’t speak the truth about it? It is demoralizing.

On Wednesday Obama had said:

The Muslim shooter had yelled "Allahu Akbar" - the Muslim battle cry - as he began firing. But that did not matter to obama, nope. ~ Wild Thing

Barack Obama said he was "saddened and outraged" by the shooting and vowed that the U.S. will spare no effort in finding out how the "outrageous" act came to pass.

Obama said investigators were still gathering information about the attack and pledged that the U.S. and German governments are both committed to ensuring that "all of the perpetrators are brought to justice."

“We don’t have all the information yet,” Obama told reporters. “You will be fully briefed as we get more information.”

On Thursday Obama said:

Obama today still refused to call the attack in Germany an act of terrorism. This is despite the fact that the killer screamed “Allahu Akbar” when he shot two US airmen dead.

They said in the news that the killer’s Facebook page is littered with references to Holy War, hatred of ‘non believers’ and has his favourite saying – ‘may the eyes of the cowards never sleep’ – by Khalid Bin Walid, an ancient Islamic fighter who united Arabia for the first time.

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

Good for Charles!

Obama voters better wake up and wake up fast. He will never be on the side of any American and especially our troops fighting and serving to keep us safe.

Lawmakers Introduce Bills to Block EPA’s “Backdoor Cap-and-Trade”

Lawmakers introduce bills to block EPA’s “Backdoor Cap-and-Trade”

After weeks of talk, legislation was introduced into the House and Senate Thursday afternoon to repeal Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulations of greenhouse gases, or what proponents are calling “backdoor cap-and-trade.” The Energy Tax Prevention Act clarifies the EPA’s authority to regulate gases like carbon emissions under the Clean Air Act.

The bill was introduced by Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan, chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, along with Republican Rep. Ed Whitfield of Kentucky, among others. It even had at least two Democratic co-sponsors – Reps. Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Nick Rahall of West Virginia.

The companion bill in the Senate was introduced by Republican Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, ranking member on the Committee on Environment and Public Works. The Senate version has 42 co-sponsors, all Republican.

“Whether at the pump or on their monthly utility bills, American families, farmers, and employers feel the pinch when energy prices go up,” said Upton in a statement. “The very last thing the federal government should do is make matters worse by intentionally driving up the cost of energy. Yet that is exactly what’s in store if the EPA moves forward with its plans to regulate and penalize carbon emissions under the Clean Air Act,”

“The EPA needs to be reined in. If Congress does not do something about the regulations being imposed on our farmers, ranchers and rural communities, the economic effects could be devastating,” added Peterson.

The bill’s introduction has already been met with praise from some in the industry.

“The EPA’s sweeping regulations will affect the lives of millions of Americans, from their electricity bills to the economy as a whole,” said Steve Miller, president and CEO of American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity. “Given this wide-ranging impact, it is important that Congress – not the EPA – address greenhouse gas emissions in a manner that takes into consideration both environmental and economic impacts.”

Wild Thing's comment......

Surprised to see any Democrat for this. So it is ood to see some anti-EPA Democrats. Maybe these dems can get some more to agree. Let's hope so.

Three cheers always for our Republicansn that are following through on what we told them at the Tea Parties, emails, phone calls and Townhall events.

Wisc. Democrats Getting Killed In The Court Of Public Opinion Do Publicity Stunt They Move Desks Out Of Capitol

The Wisconsin Senate Democrats are hiding out in Illinois. Now, the Wisconsin Assembly Democrats are moving their desks outside.

Wisconsin Legislators Move Desks Out of Capitol Locked Down By Governor

On Wednesday, a number of Democrats state Assembly members began meeting with the people they represent along the outside wall of the Capitol, beneath a banner that read: “Assembly Democrats Are Open for Business.”

“We are out here because our governor and the Department of Administration are ignoring a judge’s court order,” said Assembly minority leader Peter Barca, who was joined by state representatives Fred Clark, Nick Milroy and Cory Mason.

With them was former US Representative Dave Obey, a Democrat who began his political career as an Assembly member.

Obey said that, on Wednesday, he was denied entry to the Capitol for the first time in his five decades of public service and active citizenship.


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

From the DOA blog, the Capitol looked to be OPEN just as the court said it should. So what’s his beef?? This taking the desks outside was just to get attention.

Imagine how much Repubs could accomplish if they had the backing of the “media” that the Dems have.

Senate GOP in Wisconsin Orders Police to Take AWOL Dems Into Custody

State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald

Senate GOP in Wisconsin Orders Police to Take AWOL Dems Into Custody

FOX News

Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate passed a resolution Thursday calling for police to take 14 Democrats into custody for contempt after they fled to Illinois to avoid voting on a bill that would strip public-sector unions of nearly all their collective bargaining rights.

On the same day, Republicans in the Indiana House agreed to impose fines of $250 per day on Democrats who are also in Illinois, boycotting the legislature over labor and education bills they oppose.

In Wisconsin, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald signed the orders after Republicans voted 19-0 calling for the action unless Democrats returned to the chamber by 4 p.m. Thursday.

None of the Democrats did, prompting Fitzgerald to sign 14 orders of detainment in dramatic fashion in the center of the Senate chamber. State patrol officers watched silently from the gallery.

"We had not exhausted everything available to us to compel the senators back to the body," Fitzgerald said in an interview with Greta Van Susteren during On The Record. "If one of these senators is identified or about to come into Wisconsin they could be picked up by law enforcement and brought back to the senate chamber."

Fitzgerald added that he heard a media report that one of the missing Democratic senators didn't think he was serious.

"Bring it on, lets try it," he said. "If that senator wants to step foot in Wisconsin, he’ll see."

The move comes two weeks after the Democrats left, effectively delaying the vote on Gov. Scott Walker's proposal that he says will help him address a $3.6 billion budget shortfall. Walker said Thursday that he will start issuing layoff notices to state workers on Friday if his bill isn't passed by then.

Fitzgerald said the resolution is legally different from an arrest, but "definitely a shift from asking them politely."

The resolution gives the sergeant at arms the authority to take any and all steps, with or without force and assistance from police, to bring the senators back.

The state Constitution prohibits the arrest of lawmakers while in session unless they're accused of committing felonies, treason or breach of peace.

But James Troupis, a private attorney hired by Fitzgerald, argued Thursday that the move is legal, because the state Constitution allows each house to "compel the attendance of absent members," the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

In Indiana, most House Democrats skipped Thursday's floor sessions, extending their stay at an Urbana, Ill., hotel to a 10th day and preventing action on the bills because too few members are present.

The fines would start being assessed on Monday and be deducted from the salaries or expense allowances of the absent members.

Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma said he decided to seek the fines because the Democratic boycott had reached "the point of absurdity."

"We've tried every other means other than conceding to a list of demands and this is one of the few items that we have as options," Bosma said.

Republicans calculate that the absence of the Democrats has cost more than $250,000 in taxpayer money for the salaries and expenses of running the House during the walkout, which Bosma called "a very expensive temper tantrum."

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

Kudos to Fitzgerald, good for him and the rest of the Republicans that followed through and voted to do something about this.

What a mess this is and it isn’t going to be resolved soon. I can imagine the games which will be played once they do can expect they’ll have something up their sleves .

To Surly, With Love: Are Teachers Overpaid? See Video and You Decide!!

"To Surly, With Love" was written and produced by Nick Gillespie and Meredith Bragg.

To Surly, With Love: Are Teachers Overpaid?

According to Department of Education statistics, in 2007-2008 (the latest year available), full-time public school teachers across the country made an average of $53,230 in "total school-year and summer earned income." That compares favorably to the $39,690 that private school teachers pulled down.

And when it comes to retirement benefits, public school teachers do better than average too. According to EducationNext, government employer contribute the equivalent of 14.6 percent of salary to retirement benefits for public school teachers. That compares to 10.4 for private-sector professionals.

Those levels of compensation help explain why per-pupil school costs have risen substantially over the past 50 years. In 1960-61, public schools spent $2,769 per student, a figure that now totals over $10,000 in real, inflation-adjusted dollars. Among the things that threefold-plus increase in spending has purchased are more teachers per student. In 1960, the student-teacher ratio in public schools was 25.8; it's now at a historic low of 15.

Among the things all that money hasn't bought? Parental satisfaction, for one. Despite public teachers' much-higher salaries, parents with school-age children in public schools report substantially lower satisfaction rates than parents with children in private schools. In 2007, the percentage of parents with children in assigned public schools who were "very satisfied" with the institution was 52 percent. For parents whose children attended public schools of choice, that figure rose to 62 percent. Parents sending their children to private schools, whether religious or non-sectarian, were "very satisfied" 79 percent of the time.

It's little wonder that parents with little or no choice report the lowest-levels of satisfaction (about 90 percent of K-12 students attend public schools). Despite all the extra resources devoted to public school teachers and students, student achievement has been absolutely flat over the past 40 years. The National Assessment of Educational Progress is "the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas." When it comes to 17-year-old students (effectively, high-school seniors), nothing has changed since reporting began in the early 1970s. In 1971, 17-year-old students averaged 285 points (out of 500) in reading. In 2008, that had risen to 286. For math in 1973, the average score was 304 (out of 500). In 2008, it was 306.

Public school teachers make about $14,000 a year more in straight salary than private school teachers; when you add in benefits, the gap widens even more. They teach fewer students than ever before and taxpayers at all levels spend increasing amounts of money on education. Yet for all that, the best you can say is that we're spending more than three times as much money as we were 40 years ago for exactly the same outcomes.

The National Governors Association says that states are looking at $175 billion in shortfalls over the next two years. Local governments are in the red too. As legislators look for places to cut or reduce spending, there's no question that public school teachers have a lot to lose in terms of compensation.

And there's no question that, even if there were no budget emergencies, the nation's public school system is failing to return much of anything on an ever-growing pile of tax dollars.


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

Given the test scores of the children they are supposed to be ‘teaching’ I would suggest they are grossly overpaid.

Let's see......get summers off, spring break, winter break, snow days, holidays etc.

I realize many teachers have to teach in rough schools and be baby-sitters, but many of them have it made compared to people who work in the private sector.

And then there is the agenda of the left that is being taught in public schools! GRRRRRR, the way they have been having same sex day in gradeschool OMG, and tributes to Islam day and tours to mosques, and teaching about sex to 5 and 6 year olds.. The list would be long if we sat here and thought back on every time we are outraged at what is being taught and what is NOT being taught. Then there are student teachers who take over the classrooms for a couple of months, when the teachers do absolutely nothing.

Interesting to note too that Private schools, charter schools all pay significantly less. And, do better.

IMO.....The most , number one underpaid job in this Country, is the one fulfilled by those serving in our military.

Wisconsin Democrat Protesters Suddenly Enter Capitol Chanting, “Our house, our house"

Demonstrators suddenly enter Capitol

Around 100 screaming leftists stormed the Wisconsin State Capitol tonight. They were flashing peace signs and screaming “This is what democracy looks like!” as they stormed the building. It wasn’t the first time.

Milwaukee - Wisconsin Journal

Madison -- A group of perhaps one hundred protesters has entered the previously restricted and quiet Capitol and is now chanting, “Our house, our house.”

David Noyce of Madison said that he entered the building with the demonstrators after someone let them in and that a policeman flashed him a thumbs up as he entered. The protesters entered just as Gov. Scott Walker was about to start a news conference in a separate room of the building.

“It’s about time,” Noyce said, when told that a Dane County judge would be issuing an order to open the Capitol.

The protesters have been stopped by phalanx of police on the ground floor of the west wing and prevented from reaching the rotunda and joining the separate group of protesters who have been spending the night in the Capitol.

Both groups of demonstrators are chanting slogans over the police such as “This is what democracy looks like,” “Shame!” and “We want Walker!” Others are making a peace sign with their fingers.

Look at this. First what happened in the above article, then watch this video. Democrat State Rep. Nick Milroy (South Grange) was tackled by police Thursday evening while he was trying to make it inside the Capitol in Madison.

Hmmmmmmmm - he did not get the tumbs up like the protestors did in Madison. ~ Wild Thing


Police: Live ammo found around Capitol

41 rounds of .22-caliber ammunition discovered

FOX News

MADISON (AP) - Police say they have found live ammunition scattered on the ground around the Wisconsin Capitol.

University of Wisconsin Police Chief Susan Riseling says 41 rounds of .22-caliber ammunition were found Thursday morning scattered at several locations outside the Capitol. The revelation came as state attorneys asked a Dane County judge to order the Capitol closed for a security sweep. The judge made no immediate ruling on the request.

Protesters are in their third week of demonstrations against Gov. Scott Walker's proposal to repeal nearly all collective bargaining rights for most public employee unions. State officials said about 100 protesters remain in the building, which has had limited access since Sunday.


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

“Our house, our house.”

And nobody else is included? So the State belongs to 300,000 out of 5.6 million people? I guess they call 5.6% a majority. It was in the Soviet Union.

he entered the building with the demonstrators after someone let them in and that a policeman flashed him a thumbs up as he entered. The protesters entered just as Gov. Scott Walker was about to start a news conference...

This cop should be fired. If COPS think this bunch of commies are their “brothers” they are stupid or co conspirators.
Most of those commie/marxist/socialist/fascist/progressives want the cops dead. The policeman that gave the thumps up needs a reality check or something.

It’s time for Governor Walker to send in the National Guard.

This is from a friend that lives in Wisc. :

"Vicki McKenna website for the podcasts is WIBA is like Radio Free Wisconsin and the unions are making a serious attempt to boycott any advertisers on WIBA as long as her show is on the air. In a county that votes 70% Democrat it is a serious threat. I’d like to see Ms. McKenna be a guest host on Rush Limbaugh’s show."

Germany: Gunman Shouts 'Allahu Akbar,' Kills 2 US Airmen

Israel National News

In an apparent Muslim terrorist attack, a gunman opened fire on a U.S. Air Force bus outside Frankfurt airport Wednesday, killing two airmen and wounding two others. A source told Fox News that the shooter yelled "Allahu Akbar" - the Muslim battle cry - as he began firing.

Kosovo's interior minister told The Associated Press that German police have identified the suspect as Arif Uka, a citizen of Kosovo from the northern town of Mitrovica.

The bus was idling outside Terminal 2 at the airport, according to Frankfurt police spokesman Manfred Fuellhardt. The bus driver and a passenger were killed. One person suffered serious wounds and another light injuries, according to Fuellhardt. Uka then dropped his gun and ran into the terminal where he was subdued.

Fox News quoted U.S. Air Force Europe spokeswoman Maj. Beverly Mock as saying all four victims were airmen based at the Lakenheath military base in Britain. A military official in Europe said they were going to be deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.

A website named Pundit Press published a post in which it speculated that this is the attacker's Facebook page, although it admitted it does not have proof that this is the case and apologized in case it turns out to be wrong.

President Barack Obama said he was "saddened and outraged" by the shooting and vowed that the U.S. will spare no effort in finding out how the "outrageous" act came to pass.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the shooting "a terrible event."

A member of the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Patrick Meehan, said in Washington that the attack looked like a terrorist act. He added that he did not have all the facts about the shooting yet.

Inquiry promised on airmen attack

Obama says the government will “spare no effort” to determine why two American airmen were killed and two others were wounded in a shooting in Frankfurt, Germany.

“I’m saddened, and I am outraged, by this attack that took the lives of two Americans and wounded two others. I think the American people are united in expressing our service to those who were lost,” Obama told reporters in a surprise appearance in the briefing room. “We are praying for a speedy recovery for those who were injured.”

Obama promised that “we will spare no effort” to figure out “how this outrageous attack took place.”

“We don’t have all the information yet,” he told reporters. “You will be fully briefed as we get more information.” He added that the attack is a “stark reminder” of the “extraordinary sacrifices” made by the members of the military.

Agence France-Presse reported that the attack occurred on a bus carrying Air Force personnel to Frankfurt International Airport for a flight to the U.S.

German authorities said the gunman — described as a 21-year-old Frankfurt resident originally from Muslim-majority Kosovo, in southeastern Europe — was captured at the scene.

The U.S. military has a number of major bases near Frankfurt, including Ramstein Air Base, which are operational hubs for Afghanistan and Iraq. The city of Hamburg was the base of the Al Qaeda cell that carried out the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.


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

Obama doesn’t know “why” terrorists are attacking us — 10 years after 9-11?!???!! He sure as heck does know, he just does not want to say the truth. To Obama “this was an isolated incident”, a “lone gunman”, NOTHING to do with terrorism — just like the Ft. Hood shooter, yelling “Allahu Akbar” also had nothing to do with terrorism..

Rep. Anthony Weiner Mocks Megyn Kelly in Interview on Justice Thomas's Health Care Comments

Megyn Kelly welcomed Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner back to her show.

It’s beginning to become a habit for Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner to treat Fox News’ Megyn Kelly with insults and complete disrespect when appearing on her show. This time, Weiner treats Kelly with a very condescending and belittling attitude when she challenges him on some of his statements about Justice Clarence Thomas.

Weiner adamantly believed that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas should recuse himself from hearing a case on the constitutionality of healthcare reform due to the financial interests of his wife that give off the appearance of bias. When Kelly began to dispute whether that was legally necessary Weiner began to get agitated.

Weiner frequently appears on Fox News and his detractors might claim he just as frequently ends up yelling to make his point or looking frustrated when not given enough time. Here he questions whether Kelly knows the definition of an “interview” while also discussing the differences between facts and opinion and disputing Fox’s “coverage” of any issue. Kelly humorously asks when is it her turn to speak?

Weiner also took a cheap shot at Fox News, saying, “I’m not really sure what goes on at Fox is actually coverage.”

Q-&-A was cut short when things got heated … Weiner telling Megyn to ask questions instead of “giving speeches” and at one point sarcastically saying “great interview.


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

Weiner was doing exactly what big mouthed democRATS always do when they're getting beaten by logic - they fillibuster.

Whoever goes on her show better get their facts straight. She does her homework and does not let them twist the truth.So we don't miss it, I tape her show so Nick and I can watch her show America Live every day and love how she handles the jerks.

She takes on O’Reilly too and doesn’t let him bully her.

Justice Ginsberg’s late husband was a tax lawyer. She was never asked to recuse herself from tax cases. The idea that one is responsible for one’s spouse’s activities is absurd. The hatred for Justice Thomas is vicious & extreme.

Marc Lamont Hill On Whites-Only Scholarship:"being white is a form of scholarship"

African-American Studies professor Marc Lamont Hill is upset over a Texas student’s plan to organize white scholarships.

He says “there’s no need” for white scholarships because, “Being white itself is a form of scholarship.” Hill contends, “White people have access to school in ways that black people don’t.”
Hill dismissed the idea as a “spectacle that we see every year” from “white folk who are becoming increasingly frustrated with the fact that the world might be becoming just a little bit more fair.”


Texas group launches scholarship for white men ONLY... because they 'need an equal shot'

Daily Mail

A non-profit group has launched a college scholarship for a demographic it claims are under-represented in society - white men.

The Former Majority Association for Equality will give grants of $500 to any man from Texas who is at least ‘25 per cent Caucasian’, has good grades and can demonstrate they are in need.

Its founder Colby Bohannan claims whites feel ‘excluded’ when they apply to college and that they are ‘left out’ when it comes to funding.

The provocative move risks a backlash by anti-racism groups but college officials in Texas have said there is little they can do to prevent it.

Mr Bohannan, a former Texas State University student and Iraq veteran, said the group was named because of the idea that ‘if you're not a male, and if you're not white, you're called a minority’.

‘I'm not sure white males are the majority any more,’ he said. ‘If everyone else can find scholarships, why are we left out?’

He added that the group is not taking a stance on affirmative action and has denounced racism.

‘It's time in our society to look at the way our culture views race,’ he said. ‘It's time to give everyone an equal shot.’ FMAFE plans to offer four $500 scholarships to any college, inside Texas or outside the state, for the forthcoming academic year.

Mr Bohannan said: 'The toughest obstacles to getting this organisation off the ground seem to be not appearing racially motivated, and getting taken seriously.

'The board members of FMAFE are not trying to put anyone down or make any race or cultures seem inferior.'

Despite the apparently wild claims Bohannan may actually be correct - Hispanics accounted for two-thirds of the population growth over the past decade in Texas.

Non-Hispanic whites now make up about 45 per cent of residents.

The scholarship has already touched off a heated debate in Texas and on the Texas State University student newspaper opinion was divided.

About-time wrote: ‘This is awesome! Its about time people realize that white people deserve help too. Its not just minorities who struggle’.


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

There really should be no objection from the race peddlers on this who push minority only programs six ways from Sunday. I would prefer that Scholarships would never be based on race, there are plenty of other things Scholarships could be based on.

Have you about this: .....The Gates Millennium ScholarS Program

Bill Gates has made his scholarship fund off limits to white teenagers. The Gates Millennium Scholarship fund is financed by a $1 Billion endowment Bill Gates made in 1999. The fund explicitly denies eligibility to white students.

“Students are eligible to be considered for a GMS scholarship if they: Are African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian and Pacific Islander American, or Hispanic American;"

Congressional Bosses From Hell: Sheila Jackson Lee

From forcing staffers to wear green hats when picking her up at the airport to demanding 2 a.m. grocery runs, former employees are comparing working for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) to “living in a dangerous war zone.”

The Daily Caller

A lot of politicians give nicknames to their aides. George W. Bush famously referred to his attorney general, Alberto Gonzalez, as “Fredo.” Mitch Daniels, then head of the Office of Management and Budget, was known as “The Blade.” Barack Obama reportedly called Larry Summers, his chief economic advisor, “Dr. Kevorkian.”

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas also hands out nicknames to the people who work for her. The Houston Democrat addressed one of her employees as “you stupid motherfucker.” And not just once, but “constantly,” recalls the staffer, “like, all the time.”

Another Jackson Lee aide recounts the time her parents came to Washington to visit: “They were really excited to come to the congressional office. They’re small town people, so for them it was a huge deal. They were actually sitting in the main lobby waiting area….[Jackson Lee] came out screaming at me over a scheduling change. Called me a ’stupid idiot. Don’t be a moron, you foolish girl’ and actually did this in front of my parents, of all things.”

Yet another staffer remembers requesting a meeting early on in her tenure to ask how best to serve the congresswoman. Jackson Lee’s response: “What? What did you say to me? Who are you, the Congresswoman? You haven’t been elected. You don’t set up meetings with me! I tell you! You know what? You are the most unprofessional person I have ever met in my life.” With that, Jackson Lee hung up the phone.

According to the same staffer, Jackson Lee “would always say, ‘What am I a prostitute? Am I your prostitute? You can’t prostitute me.’”

Capitol Hill is famous for its demanding, insensitive bosses. Yet even by the harsh standards of Congress, Sheila Jackson Lee stands out.

She may be the worst boss in Washington.

“It’s like being an Iraq War veteran,” says someone who worked for her. Strangers may say, “‘oh I know what you’ve been through.’ No, you really don’t. Because until you’ve experienced it…. People don’t tell the worst of the stories, because they’re really unbelievable.”

For some, a job in Jackson Lee’s office proved not just emotionally but physically perilous. One staffer recalls a frank conversation with his doctor, who told him he needed to quit. “It’s your life or your job,” the doctor told him, warning that the stress and long hours were wreaking havoc on his body.

Only a few on staff fought back. One of Jackson Lee’s drivers became so frustrated with her abuse the person pulled the car over and demand she stop: “She’s screaming and swearing. ‘M.F.’ everything. Finally I slammed on the brakes and told her to get the hell out of my car. I’m like ‘I can’t drive with you like this. Either get out, or you can calm down.’ And she’s like ‘you need to go or get fired.’ I’m like, ‘that’s fine. But I’m either leaving without you or you can calm down,’” the staffer said.

Jackson Lee then threatened to call the police and claim she was being held hostage in the car. But she finally did calm down when the staffer called her bluff, offering to flag down a Capitol Police officer to explain the situation.

Former aide Michael McQueery said his experience with other “difficult” bosses on the Hill prepared him for how to handle Jackson Lee. “I’ve worked for two other members. They did the same thing,” he said.

“It was at first, I’m not going to lie to you, it was a rough patch with her and me. But I took her to the side and I let her know that, you know, ‘Congresswoman, I’m a man before anything else.’ And after that, we had no problems. We had no problems,” McQueery said.

Of the scores of Jackson Lee staffers contacted by The Daily Caller, only McQueery offered an affirmative defense of the congresswoman’s management techniques. “A lot of people just did not know how to go, and say, ‘hey, that’s inappropriate,’” McQueery said.

~ snipet ~

When she was not there, Jackson Lee’s office was open and the sounds emanating from inside were pleasant laughter and conversation.

“You could tell when she wasn’t there,” Stephens said. That was because on a day in which Congress was in session, a different set of sounds often came through closed doors to Jackson Lee’s office: screaming and, many times, crying.

Later that day, a skinny young black man with his hair pulled back in a ponytail walked into Miller’s office and asked Stephens for a favor. Could he borrow a knife to cut a birthday cake?

Stephens, who’d seen the man working in Jackson Lee’s office, was happy to help, with only the request to “make sure you bring it back, that’s our only one.”

He laughed. “We would never leave a knife around when the congresswoman was here,” he said. As Stephens put it, “that’s when it all clicked that they are really afraid of her.”

" I am a queen, and I demand to be treated like a queen,” Jackson Lee once said, and apparently she wasn’t kidding.

Her employees describe waiting for their boss for hours on end, sometimes late into the night, while she attends events or even sits in her office watching TV.

“You worked really, really, really late for her. When she was in town, you were in the office. So that meant, two, three, four o’clock in the morning – we were there,” one former staffer said.

Jackson Lee’s designated driver picks her up at her apartment one block from her office each morning and waits for her outside wherever she goes throughout the days and nights.

“Whatever time she told me to be there, I would always show up at least 20 minutes late, and expect to wait at least 45 minutes,” said one of Jackson Lee’s drivers. By the end of this person’s tenure, “She was making me wait in the car, sometimes upwards of five to seven hours per day.” With the car running for heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer, it began to wear down the car’s engine. “My mechanic friend said, you know, your car looks like you’ve driven it twice the miles you have,” the source said.

~ snipet ~

Her former drivers say the congresswoman demanded they run red lights and drive on highway shoulders around traffic. This caused at least one accident. As Jackson Lee was yelling at a staffer to drive faster she turned too sharply, smashing the side of her car into a wall.

Garlic - Jackson Lee’s requests don’t stop at the end of a normal working day. “In the middle of the night, people had to go get her garlic. She’ll call you at two in the morning for garlic because she takes them as supplements,” a former staffer said. Jackson Lee’s garlic runs were confirmed by other staffers

Following an intensive seven-month investigation, the Army on Wednesday filed 22 additional charges against Pfc. Bradley Manning, accused of illegally downloading tens of thousands of classified U.S. military and State Department documents that were then publicly released by WikiLeaks, military officials tell NBC News.

The most serious of the new charges is "aiding the enemy," a capital offense which carries a potential death sentence.

Pentagon and military officials say some of the classified information released by WikiLeaks contained the names of informants and others who had cooperated with U.S. military forces in Afghanistan, endangering their lives.

According to the officials, the U.S. military rounded up many of those named and brought them into their bases for their own protection. But, according to one military official, "We didn't get them all." Military officials tell NBC News, a small number of them have still have not been found.

Manning's lawyer, David. E. Coombs, did not immediately return a call from for comment.

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

Possible death penalty? That should be a given for sure.

I sure hope they also investigate his chain of command and find out who would let a guy like this get such a wide span of access to everything.

Total Racist Obama LIES and Says Tea Partiers Are Racists in New Book ~ Total BS!

Obama Says Race a Key Component in Tea Party Protests

In a new book, President Obama talks candidly about race and the presidency

US News & World Report

snipets from the stupid article about the book:

Obama, in his most candid moments, acknowledged that race was still a problem. In May 2010, he told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent “Tea Party” movement that was then surging across the country. Many middle-class and working-class whites felt aggrieved and resentful that the federal government was helping other groups, including bankers, automakers, irresponsible people who had defaulted on their mortgages, and the poor, but wasn’t helping them nearly enough, he said.

A guest suggested that when Tea Party activists said they wanted to “take back” their country, their real motivation was to stir up anger and anxiety at having a black president, and Obama didn’t dispute the idea. He agreed that there was a “subterranean agenda” in the anti-Obama movement—a racially biased one—that was unfortunate. But he sadly conceded that there was little he could do about it.


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

Obama can’t play that Race Card fast enough. I think he has paper cuts on his fingers from grabbing that out of the deck! In fact all the cards in his deck are race cards.

From Dreams From my Father...

"I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."

"There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white."-
This is a quote from Dreams from My Father.

It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."-This one is also from Dreams from My Father.

Eric Holder Gives Thugs Carte Blanche to Continue Their Behavior: Black Panther Case Focus Demeans 'my people'

Bartle Bull interview, Fox News, July 1, 2010, Megyn Kelly interview, J Christian Adams

Megyn Kelly of Fox News interviews Bartle Bull after her interviews of J. Christian Adams. Mr. Bull, a lifelong Democrat and witness to the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation in 2008, was asked about the Adams resignation and statements and actions of the US Justice Dept. He also stated that he did not vote for Obama because he considered him a hustler.

Notice how he is a life long democrat but he is so disgusted he has had enough. I posted this back in July of last year.


Eric Holder: Black Panther case focus demeans 'my people'

March 1, 2011

Attorney General Eric Holder finally got fed up Tuesday with claims that the Justice Department went easy in a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party because they are African American.

Holder's frustration over the criticism became evident during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing as Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) accused the Justice Department of failing to cooperate with a Civil Rights Commission investigation into the handling of the 2008 incident in which Black Panthers in intimidating outfits and wielding a club stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia.

The Attorney General seemed to take personal offense at a comment Culberson read in which former Democratic activist Bartle Bull called the incident the most serious act of voter intimidation he had witnessed in his career.

"Think about that," Holder said. "When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, and to compare what people were subjected to there to what happened in Philadelphia—which was inappropriate, certainly that…to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all, for my people," said Holder, who is black.

Holder noted that his late sister-in-law, Vivian Malone Jones, helped integrate the University of Alabama.

"To compare that kind of courage, that kind of action, and to say that the Black Panther incident wrong thought it might be somehow is greater in magnitude or is of greater concern to us, historically, I think just flies in the face of history and the facts.," Holder said with evident exasperation.

In a series of questions and comments earlier in the hearing, Culberson insisted that race had infected the decision-making process. "There’s clearly evidence, overwhelming evidence, that your Department of Justice refuses to protect the rights of anybody other than African Americans to vote," the Texas Republican said. "There's a pattern of a double standard here."

“I would disagree very vehemently with the notion that there’s overwhelming evidence that that is in fact true,” Holder replied. “This Department of Justice does not enforce the law in a race-conscious way.”

Rep. Chaka Fattah, a Democrat from Philadelphia, said the Black Panthers "should not have been there." But he said the GOP was making too much out of a fleeting incident involving a couple of people.

"The most unethical thing a person can do is make allegations based on absolutely nothing," Fattah said. "The only issue of race is singling out this particular decision...That this rises to national significance is bogus on its face."

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

“my people” .... hmmmmm RACIST much??!!

So any injustice against non-blacks has to measure up to that done to blacks in the past. Is that the standard?

So, as an American, I'm not one of your people, first and foremost? Glad we understand your priorities now. Now we know that you're an abject racist and why you protected the Black Panthers.

I remember when Ross Perot addressed a black audience as “you people.” There was quite a kerfluffel about that.
Let's see if there will be one about Eric oops I mean Black Panther Eric Holder.

The truth shall set you free...’my people’

Of course he is no differnet than Obama.

Democratic Assemblyman Gordon Hintz Should Be Punished For His Threat!!

GOP Rep. Michelle Litjens talks to Fox News about the death threat she received from her Democrat colleague Gordon Hintz.

Litjens says that Hintz pointed at her and said, “You are f***ing dead,” just after the vote to engross the bill that slashes union collective bargaining powers. Litjens said she didn’t necessarily take it as a threat on her life, but she added that she was definitely “intimidated” and “shaken up.”

Litjens did say that Rep. Gordon Hintz called to apologize, but only after the incident made it into the news. She said she will forgive Hintz as a person, but added that “something needs to be done about this so that it doesn’t happen in the future.”

Wiild Thing's comment.......

These threats from the LEFT and they are all from the left need to be delt with harshly. They don't get shown in the media, maybe on Fox, but no where else.But somehow there should be some kind of punishment when a person is threatened like this. Make the politician suspended for 6 months or something, 6 months of not being able to get paid, vote on anything......something. We are told they misspoke, or did not mean it or where kidding. Yeah right it meant nothing. Until when????...... until some freak out there that supports the jerk that made the threat takes it seriously and wants to show support to their person on the LEFT and do some horrible thing??????

Chief of Bullies ( toward Main Stream America) Obama Reaching Out To Gay Students To Hold Anti-bullying Conference

White House to hold anti-bullying conference

Barack Obama will host a White House conference next week on preventing bullying.

The White House says the March 10 conference will bring together students, parents and educators to discuss ways to end bullying and make schools safer for students.

Aides say this is a personal issue for both the president and his wife, Michelle Obama. The president taped a message for the “It Gets Better Campaign” last fall following the deaths of several young people who were bullied for being gay.

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

This will have nothing to do with inner city school violence, but only to promote the homosexual agenda.

'bullying' is now codespeak for 'not accepting the homosexual agenda, lock, stock and barrel.

Beautiful Actress Jane Russell, Film Star of '40s, '50s, Dies at 89


FOX News

LOS ANGELES -- Jane Russell, the busty brunette who shot to fame as the sexy star of Howard Hughes' 1941 Western "The Outlaw," died Monday of respiratory failure, her family said. She was 89.

Although Russell made only a handful of films after the 1960s, she had remained active in her church, with charitable organizations and with a local singing group until her health began to decline just a couple weeks ago, said her daughter-in-law, Etta Waterfield. She died at her home in Santa Maria.

"She always said I'm going to die in the saddle, I'm not going to sit at home and become an old woman," Waterfield told The Associated Press. "And that's exactly what she did, she died in the saddle."

Hughes, the eccentric billionaire, put her onto the path to stardom when he cast her in "The Outlaw," a film he fought with censors for nearly a decade to get into wide release.

With her sultry look and glowing sexuality, Russell became a star before she was ever seen by a wide movie audience. The Hughes publicity mill ground out photos of the beauty in low-cut costumes and swim suits, and she became famous, especially as a pinup for World War II GIs.

By that time she had become a box-office star by starring with Bob Hope in the 1948 hit comedy-Western "The Paleface."

Although her look and her hourglass figure made her the subject of numerous nightclub jokes, unlike Monroe, Rita Hayworth and other pinup queens of the era, Russell was untouched by scandal in her personal life. During her Hollywood career she was married to star UCLA and pro football quarterback Bob Waterfield.

"The Outlaw," although it established her reputation, was beset with trouble from the beginning. Director Howard Hawks, one of Hollywood's most eminent and autocratic filmmakers, rankled under producer Hughes' constant suggestions and finally walked out.

"Hughes directed the whole picture -- for nine bloody months!" Russell said in 1999.

She was born Ernestine Jane Geraldine Russell on June 21, 1921, in Bemidji, Minn., and the family later moved to the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles.


At the height of her career, Russell started the "Hollywood Christian Group", a weekly Bible study at her home which was arranged for Christians in the film industry.

Russell appeared occasionally on the Praise The Lord program on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, a Christian TV channel based in Costa Mesa, Cali.

Russell was at times a prominent Republican Party member who attended Dwight Eisenhower's inauguration with other notables from Hollywood Lou Costello, Dick Powell, June Allyson, Anita Louise and Louella Parsons.

During World War II and after she spent time touring air bases and army camps with Bob Hope-entertaining the soldiers and refreshing them with hope and light-hearted humor. ”It was wonderful to work with Bob,” Jane comments wistfully, “And we felt such a sense of privilege about our work with the troops.”


Hollywood Actress Declares Herself ‘Right Wing Christian Bigot’

February 3, 2003

Arlington, Va. ( - Veteran Hollywood Actress Jane Russell declared herself a “mean-spirited, narrow-minded, right-wing Christian bigot” to a crowd of conservative activists on Saturday.

The retired actress was making the point that she is tired of Christian conservatives being labeled intolerant when they stand up for their beliefs.

Russell’s comments received enthusiastic applause at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Arlington, Va.

The 81-year-old Russell, who spoke on a panel called “Hollywood Needs Adult Supervision,” explained that her son chides her for using the term ‘bigot,’ but she insists on doing so.

“My son said, ‘Mother you can’t say the word bigot because that has to do with nationalities and things.’ I said, ‘No darling, it’s a verb. It means I can’t stand these people who are trying to take the Ten Commandments off the wall, take prayer out of school and... take prayer out of football games.’ It’s too ridiculous,” Russell said.

“The Lord put this country together or we wouldn’t be like we are,” she added.

Russell, a former pin-up girl from the 1940s and 1950s who starred in such films as “Outlaw” and 1953’s “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” with Marilyn Monroe, now serves as an advocate for children.

Russell noted how Hollywood’s political affiliations have changed since her heyday.

“I have always been a Republican, and when I was in Hollywood long ago, most of the people there were Republican. The studio heads were all Republican, my boss, [billionaire producer] Howard Hughes, was a raving Republican, and we had a motion picture code in those days so they couldn’t do all this naughty stuff,” Russell said.

“We had John Wayne, we had Charlton Heston, we had man named Ronald Reagan, we had [Robert] Mitchum, Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable,” she added.

In an interview with,\b Russell explained why she believes present-day Hollywood has become so liberal.

“I think the 60’s have happened between when I was there and now. A lot of the actors and actresses, their parents were 60’s people and they just have a Democratic left wing - [they] flipped,” Russell said.

Asked what she thinks of present-day Hollywood liberals such as George Clooney, Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn, Russell quipped, “I think they’re not well.”


June 21, 2010

Some great American assets just keep on keepin’ on. Classic movie goddess Jane Russell — at age 89 — will be part of the burgeoning cast for Troopathon 2010, an 8-hour live broadcast from the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library. The event to raise money for care packages sent to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan was organized by Move America Forward — a grass-roots pro-troop group.


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

She was a conservative and taped a number of commercials for Republican candidates in primary elections some years ago. She became an adoption advocate and staunchly pro-life .

Jane Russell, Bob and Delores Hope were all good buddies.

Asked what she thinks of present-day Hollywood liberals such as George Clooney, Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn, Russell quipped, "I think they're not well."

LOL - a nice way of putting it!

Thank you, Jane! God bless her.

American Combat Troops To Get Gay Sensitivity Training Directly On The Battlefield

In the heat of battle: Marines fighting the Taliban in Helmand Province, Afghanistan

Combat troops to get gay sensitivity training New policy OK’d for battlefield

The Washington Times

American combat troops will get sensitivity training directly on the battlefield about the military’s new policy on gays instead of waiting until they return to home base in the United States, the senior enlisted man in Afghanistan said Thursday.

The Pentagon is launching an extensive force-wide program to ease the process of integrating open homosexuals into the ranks, including into close-knit fighting units.

Army Command Sgt. Maj. Marvin Hill, the top enlisted man in Afghanistan where 100,000 U.S. troops are deployed, said that the sessions on respecting gays’ rights will go right down to the forward operating bases, where troops fight Taliban militants.

“I have heard about the training that will be forthcoming to the battlefield,” Sgt. Hill told Pentagon reporters via a teleconference from Kabul.

“We will take our directions from the Department of Defense, from the secretary of defense, the chairman, as well as the service chiefs of each service. Our plan is to take their direction, and we’re going to execute that training right here on the battlefield.”

No unit is exempted, he said.

“Our goal is to not allow a unit to return to home station and have the unit responsible for that,” he said. “While we own those soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, we’re going to execute that training on the ground. We hope that it will have little impact on their combat and security operations here.”

Elaine Donnelly, who heads the Center for Military Readiness, said it is “ridiculous” to train combat Army soldiers and Marines as they are engage in daily combat with tenacious insurgents.

“It’s absurd because the military has more important things to think about in that dangerous part of the world,” she said. “For the administration to say this is more important than even with the troops we’re trying to train in that part of the world, I think it shows flawed priorities at best. It is ridiculous.”


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

I sure never thought we would see this happening to our military.

The real enemy of our country is not the terrorists, not number one enemy anyway. The most dangerous destroyer to our country is sitting in the Oval office and all the rest of the Progressives. Where was OUR vote about all of this. Why didn't we have a say in this repeal of DADT. And dear God WHY DO WE IN OUR COUNTRY GIVE IN TO THE MINORITIES OVER AND OVER AGAIN !!!

So now we have our troops being shot at, IED's around them, and they are being told they also have to add gay sensitivity training in the mix.

Gov. Scott Walker Stands Up To Obama and His Goons~ Thank YOU Gov. Walker!!!!

First we have Obama's comment on Monday followed by Gov. Waklker's response further down. ~ Wild Thing

Obama warns public workers are being 'vilified'

The Hill

Obama warned Monday against vilifying public workers, making his first allusion to the labor dispute in Wisconsin in a week and a half.

The president, speaking Monday to a group of governors at the White House, warned against using public servants as scapegoats, a not-so-subtle reference to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) pursuit of legislation that would eliminate collective bargaining rights for public workers.

“I don’t think it does anybody any good when public servants are denigrated, or vilified, or have their rights infringed upon,” Obama said.


Gov. Scott Walker on Monday afternoon responded to comments Barack Obama made earlier in the day about the protests in Madison:

Walker’s office issued this statement:

Office of the Gov. Scott Walker

Walker's website



Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Monday warned the 14 Democrat State Senators who have fled to Illinois that they must return and vote on the Governor’s “Budget Repair Bill” or there will be “dire consequences.”

Those consequences are layoffs of state workers, which Walker said would be necessary if they are unable to move forward with the budget bill. Walker said layoffs are the last thing he wants to do. But it will be unavoidable if the Democrats refuse to allow the budget process to move forward in order to deal with the state’s $3.6 Billion deficit.


Friday morning after the Assembly vote to approve Governor Scott Walker’s budget repair bill Democrat State Rep. Gordon Hintz turned to Republican Rep. Michelle Litjens and said: “You are F***king dead!”

620 WTMJ

State Rep. Gordon Hintz was issued a municipal citation in Appleton earlier this month for violating a city sexual misconduct ordinance.

Appleton police said the citation was issued Feb. 10 in conjunction with an ongoing investigation of Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor, 342 W. Wisconsin Ave., in Appleton. Police searched the business and a nearby residence in the 1300 block of North Division Street Jan. 28, after investigators had staked out the properties for several days after receiving a tip.

Last Friday…. after the Assembly voted to engross the Budget Repair Bill, Hintz turned to a female colleague, Rep. Michelle Litjens and said: “You are F***king dead!”

Hintz was arrested for sexual misconduct earlier in the week – in a prostitution sting.


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

If the legislatures don’t want to work, then fire them and get some who do.

God Bless Gov. Walker for calling this union-puppet clown out. I sure hope he continues to be strong about this.

“I’m sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn’t acting like the union bosses in saying one thing and doing another.”

SSSSSSSMACK!!!!.........Great one! Walker damns obama with faint praise. Better put some ice on that, 0bama!
In boxing this would be a knock down for a 10 count.

I'm sure Obama knows...

I can hear the sarcasm in the statements loud and clear.

Walker is standing up and telling people the truth, even if it is not a pleasant truth. Then he offers SOLUTIONS, while Obama leaves it to others to find the solutions. Walker’s budget plan?... Tough choices, realistic assumptions. Obama’s budget plan?.....Even the Democrats said Obama’s budget is a bad joke, phony ‘savings’ and unrealistic projections.

Cornstalked: As the 14 Wisconsin Democrats run, meet the numerous Illinois Tea Party activists giving chase

Free market capitalism at its finist. Go Rockford! LOL ~ Wild Thing

"In the video you never find anyone who's a senator but you do find people getting away from the work place world" says John Groh, President of the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

It's meant to highlight "getaway spots" and deals at restaurants, sporting events.
And of course, the clock tower where the senators first arrived.

"It’s very very cute, a way of turning lemons into lemonade." says Dwight Hophauf, GM of Clock Tower Resort.

Even Rockford’s own “Cheap Trick" guitarist Rick Nielsen showed off a hiding spot.

"I’ve been hiding out here 40 or 50; I don't even remember how many years.” says Nielsen.

And while one state continues to search for them, another nearby city is just glad they stopped by.


Cornstalked: As the 14 Wisconsin Democrats run, meet the numerous Illinois Tea Party activists giving chase

The Daily Caller

To say that 14 Wisconsin Democrats are “on the lam” in Illinois is an understatement. Relentlessly hounded by Illinois Tea Party members, they are truly, on the run.

No matter which podunk border town the senators try to hide in, they are running all the time thanks to highly effective efforts of conservative activists who have streamlined their “search party” by utilizing Facebook, email blasts and quick video posts. Who knew the Tea Party would be so good at bounty hunting 2.0?

On Thursday, The Missing 14 unsubtly crashing the Clock Tower Resort’s Choloholic Frolic in Rockford, Ill. David Hale, the Rockford Tea Party, and his camera began stalking the resort pestering the senators. By Saturday, some of the Missing 14 had skipped over to the city’s Holiday Inn — and were reportedly seen at Hooters having a last supper of sorts — when Hale waltzed into the hotel’s lobby and confronted them with his camera and questions like, “Senators! Why won’t go home and do your job.”

Probably aware that a posse of 14 pasty bureaucrats will stick out in a crowd, the senators did what any fugitive chain gang would do: They cut the links and went in separate directions. One did the smart thing and disappeared into the polished back alleys of the Windy City, where only the New York Times could find him.

By the following Monday, eight of the 14 had gone 30 miles northeast to the two-hotel town of Harvard (Pop. 9,000ish) thinking it might be a good place to “hide.” It took just one tip from a “concerned citizen,” however, before a few amateurs Illinois activist descended upon the hotel, causing enough trouble commotion for the senators to quickly pack it up.

Mary Alger, the coordinator of the McHenry County Tea Party was was grocery shopping when she got the tip. Dropping off the produce, making a quick sign and skirting 15mins Northwest to Harvard, she met up with “Doc,” a member of the Northern Illinois Tea Party who holds down a full-time job when he’s not hunting Democrats. Lori White, a Spring Grove resident, showed up after responding to a Facebook post on the Rockford Tea Party site asking if anyone near Harvard was willing to drop by the hotel, preferably with a video camera.

The hotel called the cops on “Doc” and Mary because they were trespassing, so Doc skedaddled and at a nearby McDonald’s Mary waited for White to arrive into town. Unfortunately, White got there just in time to see four senators piled into a tiny Mazda behind her — the make, model and license plate she’d gotten after responding to the Facebook post. As she fumbled for her video camera, the senators sped off, up Highway 23. Though she tried to follow, White eventually lost them. Not that she’ll stop helping out in the other bounty hunters.

Meanwhile, a local paper published a picture of one of them Democrats. Northern Ill Tea Party board member Joe Terrell had not only set up a “Flee Party Tracker” Facebook page but was able to do some magic thanks to information sharing and basic internet research.

“Based on that picture, a list of Democratic donors and Google Earth we were able to identify where it was taken,” said Terrell. And with that, he posted the citizens equivalent to what the police like to refer to as an APB — an All Points Bulletin.

For the past week and a half, this has been the regular rhyme and flow of both the Wisconsin state senators and the amateur bounty hunters tracking them down. Each time the senators find a place to hide, some local resident sends a quick Facebook note or records a few minutes of footage so that tea party members around Northern Illinois can coordinate confrontations no more dangerous than a slightly pushy reporter asking, “Why are you running?”

One local Tea Party group claims to have 80-100 people attending it’s monthly meeting. Multiply that by several Northern Illinois counties as well as tea party supporters networking online and the number of vigilant citizens looking for the 14 Democrats is in the hundreds, if not thousands. Everyone already knows why The Missing 14 refuse to go home (something about unions, right?), so why exactly are they hiding? Gov. Walker hasn’t issued any warrants for their arrest and Illinois doesn’t legally recognize bounty hunters. The truth is, the Missing 14 are running from bad publicity and an army of tea party enthusiasts almost serving as citizen journalists. So who exactly are these people doing all the chasing, and how are they doing it?

~ snipet ~

Meanwhile, the Illinois Tea Party is only getting better and better at keeping the spotlight on the elusive ones. There’s still the constant phone calls and emails and Facebook posts between activists. But now, even the entire city of Rockford is drawing attention to the Wisconsin 14. The city’s promotional organization just launched a “Hideaway in Rockford” campaign. Soundbite: “Here in Rockford, ( see VIDEO ABOVE ) our doors are wide open, we want people to come here and hideaway, from whatever they’re trying to get away from.”

Unrelenting public mockery, though, that’s tough to hide from.

Wild Thing's comment......

Good for the Tea Party for tracking them down and keeping them nervous. Fantastic!!! As Rush noted the other day, this used to be the job of news media.

Hopefully, the taxpayers aren’t paying for this ridiculous charade by the rats, their food, and hotel bills etc.

Great ad! Mocking the cowardice of Wisconsin Democrats has entered a new phase!
