A Must See Video Of Sen. Marco Rubio Speaking On Senate Floor Regarding Debt and No Plan From Obama and Dems For 2 1/2 Years!

Sen. Marco Rubio: "Save the Whole House or It Will All Burn Down"

On the Senate Floor Sen. Rubio discusses the debt and engages in a debate with Sen. John Kerry.

“I would love nothing more than compromise — but compromise that’s not a solution is a waste of time.."

Rubio also allowed Democrat Sen. John Kerry to interrupt him with some questions, which he handled with great ease

Rubio hit Kerry’s questions out of the park.


Sen. Rubio: “Thank you, Mr. President.

“I rise here on the Senate floor today to speak on the tremendous issue that's captivated, and rightfully so, the attention of our country.

“Let me start by saying that I do not enjoy nor relish the partisan role of attack dog. I never found any fun in that. I don’t think it’s constructive. I don't intend to become that here in the Senate.

“I also have only been here for seven months, which means I haven't been here long enough to think any of the stuff that's going on is normal. And I certainly don't think any of the stuff that goes on around here too often is normal. So I think the fact that I've been here seven months has served me well in that regard.

“Let me begin if I can. One of the things that I’ve noticed this week is that Washington is full of people from all over the world and all over the country that have traveled here this week to come and watch their government at work and see the monuments of the city and found themselves in the middle of this debate.

“So I think it’s important to remind people what we're debating because although it is a difficult and important issue, it is not a complicated one to understand. It’s pretty straight forward.

“And here’s the way I would describe it the United States of America more or less -- these are rough numbers but they’re accurate – spends about $300 billion a month. It has $180 billion a month that comes to the federal government through taxes and other sources of revenue and that means that in order to meet its bills at the end of every month it needs to borrow $120 billion.

“Now, for much of the history of this country, there have been increases in the debt limit and the ability to borrow money. But what has happened over the last few years is that it's no longer a routine vote because the people who give us our credit rating are saying too much of the money that you spend every month is borrowed and we want you to show us how over the next ten years you are going to borrow less as a percentage of what you spend.

“And so that's why, for years, where the debt limit was routine vote, it no longer can be. It’s not something that was made up in some conservative think tank. But the reality that we cannot continue to borrow 40% to 41% of every penny that the government spends has brought us to this point.

“So you would think that seeing that, our government and our leaders here in both parties would react to that immediately and work on it.

“And I've heard lot of talk today about delaying tactics and delaying votes. I would argue to you that this issue has been delayed at least for the last two and a half years.

“In the two years before I even came here, this chamber neither proposed nor passed a budget. It is a startling figure that for the last two years this government has operated without a budget. So think about that. Two years have gone by without a budget. The first two years that the President was the president, no budgets.

“Some people would say, well, that's because of partisanship in Washington. Well, that's not true. In the two years before I got here, both the House and Senate were controlled by members of the Democratic Party, which are the President's party. In fact, in this chamber for at least one of those two years, 60 votes, 60 out of the 100 members here caucused with the Democrats. And as you recall, on Christmas Eve of the year 2009, they were able to pass a health care bill that was very controversial because they had the 60 votes in the President’s party.

“Over two years, no budget. In fact you know how long it has been since this chamber proposed a budget? Forget passed a budget, proposed a budget? 822 days. That’s a long time. A lot of things have happened in the last 822 days, but proposing a budget is not one of them out of this chamber.

“So then I got here – and we got here in January, seven months have passed, still no budget. Again, not budget passed, proposed, offered. Here's our budget. Still no budget. 822 Days and every single day that I've been here.

“Now, in the last seven days on this debt debate, we have finally seen a proposal from the esteemed senator from Nevada, the majority leader. You would think, has he brought it to the floor to vote? Not until last night. So, again, offered a proposal over the weekend and still for six days we sat around and what did we do around here? Nothing. It was never brought to a vote.

“You would think these issues would have been worked on in January, February, March -- nothing. This chamber has done nothing. You talk about delay tactics? They've been delaying for two and a half years.

“Now the President doesn't have the luxury of some of these things. He has to propose a budget by law, and he did. Let me tell you how ridiculous the budget was. Not a single member of this Senate voted for it, including the Democrats. It is a budget that didn't lead with the debt limit; in fact, it increased the debt. That's how absurd the budget was.

“Where is the President plan? We haven't seen it. We haven't seen it. Here's the President's plan: a blank sheet of paper. He doesn't have a plan. He hasn't offered a plan. Again, if this were a Republican president, I would say the same thing.

“I do not understand how an issue of this magnitude, of generational importance, the President of the United States has not offered a plan. If someone has seen the president's plan, please send it to me because no one else has seen it. It does not exist.

“So this has been the plan all along, by the way. The plan all along was not to take a position, to let the days count down until we got to this point with 72 hours to go and then force a vote on something that they wanted. I believe that that has been the plan the entire time. And you can see it carrying itself out.

“You want to know why people all across America get grossed out about politics? It’s by watching this kind of stuff happen.

“And instead let me tell you what we’ve seen for the last few days. First of all, for today and for much of this time I have heard all these attacks and name-calling. If we had $1 billion for every time I heard the words "tea party extremist," we could solve this debt problem.

“So all this name-calling, so I said let me read some quotes about this debt limit and I found some pretty extremist quotes.

“Here's one.

“It says, "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I, therefore, intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt.” A quote from a tea party extremist, right? No. This is a quote from March 16 of 2006 from Senator Barack Obama of Illinois.

“I found another extremist quote. This one says,

"Because this massive of accumulation of debt was predicted, because it was foreseeable, because it was unnecessary, because it was the result of willful and reckless disregard for the warnings that were given and for the fundamentals of economic management, I am voting against a debt limit increase.” Well, that must be from a tea party extremist member of the House, right? No. This is March 16, 2006, from Senator Joe Biden of Delaware.

“And last but not least, here's a quote from September 27 of 2007. It says,

"I find it distasteful and disturbing to increase the debt limit yet again. Clearly we need to change course and this debt limit bill is just another reminder of that." And that is from the distinguished Senator from Nevada, the majority leader. On that date in 2007.

“And yet now these same quotes in this context, what we're talking about raising the debt limit more than has ever been raised in one vote, is extremism? This name-calling is absurd and it sets this process back.

“The other thing I hear -- oh, it is not reasonable. This is a waste of time. This bill can't pass the Senate when they talk about the House bill. So now it disqualifies the bill the fact that it can't pass in the Senate.

“Well, guess what? The Senate bill can't pass in the Senate -- the Senate bill can't pass in the Senate.”

Sen. John Kerry (D-MA): “Will the Senator yield for a question?”

Sen. Rubio: “Yes, I'll yield.”

Sen. John Kerry: “I thank the Senator for doing that. That's become somewhat unusual in the Senate today. So I truly appreciate it.

“I would ask the Senator, as ironic as it may be that on occasion people in the past have indeed voted against a debt limit -- both Republicans and Democrats alike -- is it not true that in those situations those votes did not hold the nation hostage, did not come at a moment of enormous economic fragility as we are in today, and did not run the risk of default because it was going to pass overwhelmingly every time?

“Is that not true?”

Sen. Rubio: “To the Senator from Massachusetts, I would say two things.

“The first is that those votes -- put it to you this way. If the Senator from Illinois at the time, Senator Obama, had had his way, we'd be in the same position we are in now. Because he had voted against the debt – and I recognize the President has now said that the debt limit is -- he made a mistake and he wouldn't have said that were he here today.

“My point, I would say to the Senator from Massachusetts, is that rhetoric two years ago was not considered extremist language and now that rhetoric, which by the way I have not found. I think it is a myth. There may be a handful of people in the building both in the House and Senate perhaps that believe that the nation doesn't have to raise the debt limit. But by and large everyone recognizes that something must be done about the debt limit.

“What we have also said – I speak for myself. Let me not speak for any other member of this chamber or the next.

“What I have also said is that it would be a terrible mistake to lose this opportunity to do something meaningful about the debt. And that the debt limit gives us an opportunity to do something meaningful about the debt, because the crisis that America faces is not one that I have defined.

“But one that has been defined by the rating houses and rating agencies who have said if you do not get your spending in order, we don't care whether you raise your debt limit or not, we will downgrade you.

“And what that means for every American is an increase in their interest payments.”

Sen. John Kerry: “Will the Senator further yield for a question?”

Sen. Rubio: “Yes.”

Sen. Kerry:

“Mr. President I appreciate what the Senator is saying. I would just say first of all that everybody understands the danger of the rating agencies right now.
“The problem is, we got to reach across the aisle and negotiate. We've got to come to agreement. Right now there's not a lot of negotiating going on.

“I would ask the Senator, if he doesn't agree that there is an enormous difference between -- the Senator a moment ago said if he had gotten his way. But the whole point is, everybody knew he wasn't about to get his way. That was a truly symbolic vote.

“Today, however, is it not true we are on the brink of a default and the absence of negotiation or the absence of a settlement presents us with a far more serious consequence to the unwillingness to raise the debt ceiling today?”

Sen. Rubio: “To the Senator from Massachusetts I would say it's impossible to negotiate with someone who doesn't offer a plan. How do you negotiate with someone who will not offer a plan and will not put it on the table?

“But the finger pointing of who has a plan and who doesn't have a plan is relevant, but it's not the central issue here.

“I would also say that in March of this year, March 30 to be exact of this year, I wrote an op-ed piece that ran in The Wall Street Journal and it outlined the things I was looking for to be a part of this debate. And I was told on March of this year that we didn't have enough time to do all those things. Although later on we found out perhaps we did, this grand bargain and I am prepared, as I stand here today, if there is a meeting going on right after this, I'd love to be a part of it.

“I am prepared to discuss the things that I believe we need to do not just to raise the debt limit. Raising the debt limit is the easiest thing. That's one vote away. The hard thing is to show the world we are serious about putting our spending in order so we can show people we'll able to pay our bills down the road.

“And that is a combination of things that I have outlined very clearly, not just on March of this year in The Wall Street Journal, but in repeated speeches on this floor.

“And those are the things, we need to do two things.

“Number one is we need to grow our economy because while the debt is the biggest issue in Washington, jobs are the biggest issue facing America. And if we could get more people back to work, we would have more people paying taxes, and if we had more people paying taxes, we'd have more revenue for government.

“And so that is the first thing we need to do, is figure out how to create jobs in America and I think there is bipartisan agreement on things we can do to do that.

“The President himself mentioned regulatory reform as a necessity in the State of the Union. Let's do it.

“We've all talked about tax reform. Flattening and simplifying our tax code. And if there are things in that tax code that do not belong there because they are the product of good lobbying instead of good policy, then let's go after those things. We’ve talked about that. Let's talk about that.

“I think we all agree that there has to be some changes in discretionary spending, but we also agree that doesn't solve the problem. That's a small piece of our overall budget. That we have to save Medicare because it goes bankrupt if we leave it the way it is. That we have to save Medicaid because it goes bankrupt if we leave it the way it is.

“And I can tell you that history will back up what I'm about to say and that is that there is no government run by conservatives, Republicans, put whoever you want there, if you give government the opportunity to spend more money than it has, it will do it. It will do it every time.

“That's why I believe there are at least 20 members of the Senate in the other party who have supported some version of the balanced budget amendment and yet it's something we cannot even get a vote on much less discuss in the Senate.

“So I believe there can be compromise on those outlines but here's the last thing I would say.

“I believe my time is about to expire so let me close with this.

“Compromise is fantastic.

“I would love nothing more than to leave this building tomorrow night having said the republic still works. I was able to stand shoulder to shoulder with people from states far from mine with views different from mine but who love their country so much that we were able to come together and save it when it faced this catastrophe.

“I would love nothing more than compromise. But I would say to you that compromise that's not a solution is a waste of time.

“If my house was on fire, I can't compromise about which part of the house I'm going to save. You save the whole house or it will all burn down.

“We either save this country or we do not.

“And to save it, we must seek solutions.”

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

If you can be sure to watch to all the way to the end of the video. John Kerry stands up and trys to put pressure on Rubiio. Hahahahha

Impressive and to the point. Rubio is a helluva sharp guy....WOW! Rubio was excellent: Compromise that is NOT a solutions a waste of time.

Democrats can’t handle it when someone dares speak up and just tell the facts.

Obama's 50th Birthday Bash and Fund Raiser $50 A Person To $35,800 Per Couple

Obama hits Chicago for 50th birthday fund-raisers at the Aragon

Chicago Sun Times

Obama returns to Chicago on Aug. 3 to mark his 50th birthday with fund-raisers at the Aragon Ballroom, with tickets ranging from $50 a person to $35,800 per couple, which includes VIP seating at a “Birthday Concert” where celebs will be performing and a dinner with the president.

The fundraiser at the Aragon, the historic ballroom in Uptown, will be one of the biggest third quarter events, expected to draw in national supporters. Obama’s 50th birthday is Aug. 4.

The Obama team on Wednesday reported collecting more than $86 million in second quarter fund-raising over $47 million directly for the Obama 2012 campaign and more than $38 million for the Democratic National Committee. . . .

Obama’s birthday bash at the Aragon was first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times Stella Foster.

The event is multi-tiered: There is a concert at 4 p.m. — Foster said songstress Jennifer Hudson may perform — for the basic $50 contribution, of which there is supposed to be “limited availability.”

For $10,000, a person gets a souvenir photo with Obama at a reception and preferred seating at the concert. For $1,000 a person gets seated in a “premium section” with a “hosted bar.” A general admission ticket is $200.

Wild Thing's comment......

LOL The Aragon is in a REALLY crappy part of town, there are loads of gangbangers, crackheads, and typical obummer voters overrunning the streets. At night, one would have to be insane to go there!

President G.W.Bush To Be In NYC To Mark 10th Anniversary Of 9/11

President George W. Bush puts his arm around firefighter Bob Beckwith while standing in front of the World Trade Center in New York during a tour of the devastation.

Bush to be in NYC to mark 10th anniversary of 9/11



The ceremony at the World Trade Center site marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks will be a solemn but stately event that will include former President George W. Bush and a chance for victims' families to view the names of loved ones etched into the memorial, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.

President Barack Obama and Bloomberg will be joined by the leaders in charge during the 2001 attacks, including Bush, former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and former New York Gov. George Pataki. Current New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will also be there, he said.

Speaking on his weekly radio show Friday on WOR-AM, Bloomberg said the lawmakers will read short poems or quotes. No speeches will be given.

"This cannot be political," he said. "So that's why there's a poem or a quote or something that each of the readers will read. No speeches whatsoever. That's not an appropriate thing."

The mayor also revealed a few more details for the ceremony on Sunday, Sept. 11. It will be held on the highway to the west of the site, and only relatives will be allowed inside the memorial to look for the names of their loved ones, etched into the railings at two huge waterfalls built in the footprint of the World Trade Center.

I wish Obama was not going to be there. ( deep sigh)

Desperate Nancy Pelosi Said Speaker Boehner Went To The " Dark Side in Debt Plan ~ So Typical Of A Democrat


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told the House floor that Speaker Boehner went to the “dark side” with his debt plan that would cut government spending. When Pelosi was Speaker the national deficit went from $162 billion to over $1.3 trillion dollars.

Right before the House voted to reject a Democratic debt-ceiling plan, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi didn’t mince words.

Pelosi pulled out a Star Wars reference on the House floor, saying that Speaker John Boehner “chose to go to the dark side” and court the most conservative members of his conference, rather than work on a bipartisan compromise.

“It’s time for us to end this theater of the absurd,” she said. “It’s time for us to get real.”

The House struck down the Democratic measure, 173-246, in a vote that was designed to fail. Boehner brought the measure up under a special rule that required a two-third majority for passage.

“This thing is not on the level,” Pelosi said before the vote.

Boehner’s office said Saturday morning that the vote on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s legislation would show that the Nevada Democrat’s plan can’t pass the House, dismissing it as a “pointless political exercise.”


Pelosi: GOP Using Deficit to ‘Destroy Your Rights ’ And ‘Undermine’ Government

Pelosi: GOP Using Deficit to ‘Destroy Your Rights ’ And ‘Undermine’ Government Tuesday, July 26, 2011 By Nicholas Ballasy (

When speaking at a news conference on workers rights, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed that Republicans are using the budget deficit as a way to “destroy your rights” and “undermine the government.”

She continued, “They [Republicans] have a different vision of America and that vision of America is not one of fairness to Americans – American workers. They fear you because of their desire to have endless wealth and not take any responsibility for helping to grow the country that helped them succeed.”

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

Hahaha they just can't stop with the stupid attacks.

The biggest threat to our rights *IS* the Government!

What a demagogue.

I forget which video it was at YouTube, but I left a comment about Obama and I said....

" Obama has not had one single plan for the debt bill, not one. But the Republicans so far have offered TWO. "

The next day some jerk put a message to me at my YouTube page. He simply said....

" You are a C ( he spelled out the C word" )

It just shows how so many of the democrats cannot come back with an opinion, they can only resort to calling a person vile names.

I deleted it because there have been so many truly great people leavingi comments at my YouTube page and this yukky person's did not deserve to be left there.

Obama Takes Debt Battle to Twitter, Loses More Than 40,000 Of His Followers In One Day ~ LOL

Barack Obama Takes Debt Battle to Twitter, Loses More Than 40,000 Of His Followers In One Day

The Daily News

Originally Published:Friday, July 29th 2011, 4:45 PM
Updated: Friday, July 29th 2011, 10:57 PM with NEW Total!

Obama brought his debt battle to Twitter and he lost – more than 40,000 Twitter followers.

Obama asked Americans Friday to call, email, and tweet REPUBLICAN Congressional leaders to “keep the pressure on” lawmakers in hopes of reaching a bipartisan deal to raise the nation’s $14.3 trillion debt limit ahead of an Aug. 2 deadline.

Obama’s campaign staff used the @BarackObama Twitter account to post the Twitter handles of tweeting GOP leaders – state by state, tweet by tweet.

“Tweet at your Republican legislators and urge them to support a bipartisan compromise to the debt crisis,” Obama’s campaign staff wrote on his account before launching the day-long Twitter campaign.

The campaign appears to have served its purpose: Republican Twitter accounts were flooded with pleas for compromise.

Not everyone is a fan of the presidential spam. By Friday evening, the President had lost more than 40,000 Twitter followers - and counting.

Many members of the Twitterati took to the social media platform to voice their annoyance over the barrage of partisan tweets. A search for “@BarackObama unfollow” turned up scores of irritated posts.

“Honestly, @BarackObama, I’m going to have to unfollow you if you don’t stop filing up my Twitter inbox soon,” tweeted Bostonian @melisthreadgill, a self-described “Progressive activist”.

“Can’t believe I had to unfollow @BarackObama for spamming Twitter. Really, really strange behavior,” wrote @Arevill inConnecticut.

“I want to unfollow @BarackObama but his desperation is too entertaining,” tweeted @rdpatrick of Lavonia, Georgia.

While his follower number appears to have taken its biggest dive in recent memory, Obama’s Twitter account still had a whopping 9,362,880 followers at 7:30pm Friday night, down from 9,402,898 Friday morning - and he's still the third-most followed person on the planet.


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

We all know he has an agenda to destroy our country but there is another thing about him too...... his total inability to even pretend to 'act' presidential. He is so out of his realm and element that I think that is just another thing that other countries have noticed too about Obama.

I don't do twitter or tweet and never will, it is not my thing, but here is Obama's page and it looks like he and his staff are spaming his followers. LMAO No wonder they are getting turned off!!!

Putting the link here so you can see what it looks like. LOL I do love how his followers are turned off by the gazillion tweets they are getting.!/BarackObama

Rep.Paul Ryan Responds To Defense ‘Cuts’: ‘Let’s Pass A Bill To Cover The Moon With Yogurt’ ~ Good One!

Conservative star Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) ripped Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for the fantasy savings in his budget plan.

Let’s pass a bill to cover the moon with yogurt that will cost $5 trillion today. and then let’s pass a bill the next day to cancel that bill. We could save $5 trillion.”


Rep. Paul Ryan took the House floor today to rail against what he considered “accounting tricks and budget gimmicks” by those attempting to carve out a budget that reduced spending. Among those, he explained, were the supposed “cuts” to defense spending that cut from predicted future spending in Iraq and Afghanistan, which he argued were not any different than repealing a bill proposing to “cover the moon with yogurt.”
Introducing to the debt crisis lexicon what is perhaps its catchiest potential meme yet, Rep. Ryan explained that much of the “spending” cuts proposed were counting money not yet necessary to spend. Many of the assumptions, Rep. Ryan explained, in the proposed cuts were, to him, complete fiction:

“We assume we’re going to be fighting this war for 10 more years, with over 100,000 troops in Afghanistan and oh, gosh, wait, we’re going to withdraw our troops in 2014. $1 trillion in savings. I’ve got a better idea. Let’s pass a bill to cover the moon with yogurt that will cost $5 trillion today. and then let’s pass a bill the next day to cancel that bill. We could save $5 trillion. Wait, I’ve got a better idea. Our debt is $14 trillion. Let’s come up with a new plan to spend $14 trillion, then rescind it the next day and let’s save $14 trillion. This stuff is fiscal fantasy. You can’t make this stuff up, Mr. Speaker.”

“We can’t keep spending money we can’t have,” he continued, emphasizing that the money that the proposal on the floor claimed to save was not money that anyone should expect to be spent at any time. “Why on earth do we want to give the President a blank check to keep doing that, giving our sovereignty and self-determination to other countries to loan us money to fund our government? Those days have got to end,” he concluded. The point may be a serious one of Congressional contention, but expect that “cover the moon with yogurt” analogy to take the express route into GOP talking points.

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

LOL love how he put this.

We really do have a lot of awesome conservatives in office. And we will get rid of the RINO's each time they come up for their next election. I pray this happens!!!

House has passed TWO Bills, While Obama and The Democrats Have Done Absolutely Nothing

Barack Obama held a short press conference yesterday morning to discuss the Republican’s debt plan. He still has no plan.

Charles Krauthammer was not impressed with Barack Obama’s latest offer from earlier yesterday to “discuss” cutting entitlements. Krauthammer had this to say,

“We know the president has no plan… Everything is killed in the senate. It is a place where all bills that solve this go to die… This man is still back in discussions which he gave a year ago. But, he discusses, gives speeches. Nothing is scored. Nothing is estimated. He has nothing in a plan. In public, no cuts. Nothing.”

If you haven’t already seen it, you must go here to see an incredible visualization of America’s massive national debt. Sobering, to say the least. It is something that could be sent to others as well. I had never seen it displayed this way before.



Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid used a parliamentary move last night to kill the “Boehner Bill” just hours after it passed the House of Representatives .

Democrat-Controlled Senate Kills the “Boehner Debt Limit Bill” by Voting to “Table” It

Senate Kills Debt Bill, Bipartisan Talks on Hold

Roll Call

Less than two hours after House Speaker John A. Boehner pushed his bill through the House over the strenuous objections of nearly two dozen of his own Republican members, the Democratic leadership in the Senate followed through on their promise to kill his legislation.

But the move now sets up an uncertain 72 hours as the Congress moves ever closer to the Tuesday deadline when the Treasury Department says the country will default on its financial obligations without an increase in the debt ceiling.


Wild Thing's comment......

There is also a poll that shows Obama's ratings hit new low. Fine, but to even have one person think he is ok is too many.

Speaker John Boehner's AWESOME Speech He Gave Just Before The Vote On His Debt Limit Bill

Speaker Boehner gave a passionate awesome speech. I LOVE his being on fire and he needs to know we want this fire and not only once and awhile but all the time. He was telling off the freak in the WH and Reid and the rest of the dems and was great!

The House passed Speaker of the House John Boehner’s bill.The vote fell along party lines at 218-210, with 22 Republicans voting against the bill.


Rush Limbaugh today telling conservatives, “I want to tell you how damn proud I am of you,” for putting pressure on the “inside the beltway” conservative leadership in Congress, resulting in the addition of a “Balanced Budget Amendment” provision to the “Boehner Plan.” Limbaugh has led the charge – along with Mark Levin and Sean Hannity – to not accept the “Boehner Plan as put forward yesterday. Boehner has now revamped the plan to gain additional votes by adding a provision for a Balanced Budget Amendment.


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

Thank you Rush and thank you Speaker Boehner. I LOVE that speech he gave so much, full of passion and fire. He has done this before but way too long in between. The last time was during the freaking obamaDEATHcare he held up the huge stack of pages and gave an awesome speech then too.

"The eagle couldn't have picked a better person"

Star Tribune

Frank Glick, an amateur photographer, captured this amazing image at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minnesota. The eagle is perched on the gravestone of Sgt. Maurice Ruch a World War II US Army marksman.

A photograph taken by "chance" or a grace note added to a good man's life?

"Paul wondered whether a relative of the soldier might want a copy. The tail of the eagle partially covered the man's name, but Paul did some research and looked up the soldier's name in newspaper obituaries. The eagle had landed on the grave of Sgt. Maurice Ruch, who had been a member of the St. Anthony Kiwanis Club, the obituary said. Paul called the club, and it put him in touch with Jack Kiefner, Ruch's best friend. When Glick took his photo, he never could have guessed how much it was going to mean to Kiefner and Ruch's widow, Vivian.

READ on about this very special story....................

It was a crow that first caught Frank Glick's attention. It was flying around erratically, so Glick got out his Nikon camera and followed it. It was around 6 a.m. on a hazy spring day and he was driving through Fort Snelling National Cemetery because he was early for a training meeting at Delta Airlines, where he works.

Glick is an amateur photographer, but he always carries his camera, just in case. So he followed the crow, in some cultures a symbol of good luck and magic, until he saw it: a huge eagle perched on a tombstone, its eyes alert, its head craned, looking for prey. In the foreground, dew glistened on the grass.

Glick got his shot.

He didn't think too much about the photo, until he showed it to a co-worker, Tom Ryan, who e-mailed it to his brother, Paul.

Paul wondered whether a relative of the soldier might want a copy. The tail of the eagle partially covered the man's name, but Paul did some research and looked up the soldier's name in newspaper obituaries. The eagle had landed on the grave of Sgt. Maurice Ruch, who had been a member of the St. Anthony Kiwanis Club, the obituary said.

Paul called the club, and it put him in touch with Jack Kiefner, Ruch's best friend. When Glick took his photo, he never could have guessed how much it was going to mean to Kiefner and Ruch's widow, Vivian.

One day this week, I met with Kiefner and Vivian Ruch in her St. Anthony condo. The actual print would be delivered later that day, but Vivian held a copy of the statuesque photo and her voice broke as she talked about Maurie, his nickname, who died from a form of Parkinson's in 2008 at age 86.

"I'm sorry," she said. "This is very emotional for me."

Maurie graduated from college in mechanical engineering in December of 1941 and enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps. Known for his keen eye, he became a rifle marksman and was stationed in the Aleutian Islands. He served four years in the military and earned a bronze star.

To those who knew Maurie, he was a calm and deliberate giant. He stood 6 feet, 4 inches tall, with broad shoulders, but he was also unassuming and unpretentious.

"Used to call him Mr. Precise," because of his love of order and knack for fixing things, said Vivian. The Ruches had a rotary telephone long after they became obsolete because Maurie scavenged parts and kept the phone working.

"He could work a slide rule like nobody else," said Kiefner, who was a manager at Honeywell when Maurie was there as an engineer. Kiefner and Maurie were friends for more than 60 years. Not many people can say that anymore.

Maurie also loved nature and photography, so "he would have absolutely loved this picture," Vivian said. "I told him his first love was his rifle."

On a rainy morning, Vivian spread photos of Maurie in the service, and the two old friends sat and ate banana bread and talked about a man they both loved.

They got that opportunity because a guy they didn't know, Frank Glick, caught a special moment, and he and his friends took the time to seek them out and share the photo.

I told Vivian that some cultures believe the eagle is a symbol, not only of patriotism and dignity, but a messenger between heaven and earth. She nodded solemnly.

"I'd say the eagle had a very good eye when he landed on Maurie, and he was respected," she said.

"I miss him," said Vivian as she picked up the photo. "He was a good man and a good provider."

"The eagle couldn't have picked a better person," said Kiefner. He paused. "This has been kind of fun hasn't it?"

Tears welled in Vivian's eyes.

"Yes, it's been wonderful."

Democrat Rep. Jerrold Nadler:"‘..the real crisis is unemployment, not the deficit....we need to spend money on more food stamps" ~ This Man Is Insane!

Nadler: ‘We Don’t Have a Deficit Problem Right Now’

The way to get out of "unemployment crisis is to spend money," Rep. Nadler says.


Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) argued at a news conference with the Congressional Out of Poverty Caucus that the United States does not currently have a budget crisis.

"That’s the real crisis – the unemployment, not the deficit.

“We don’t have a deficit problem right now . . . The real problem is we’re not taxing properly. . . .We talk about, “We have a budget deficit crisis” – No we don’t! We have a tax crisis. We have a crisis that we’re not taxing properly, and we have a recession and unemployment crisis. The way to get out of that unemployment crisis is to spend money on more food stamps, on aid to states and local governments. . . If we did that, unemployment would go down and tax receipts would go up. . .”

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

LOL I have to laugh at this it is so over the top.

It's truly frightening to know that people who think like this, and probably truly believe what they're spouting, have the power necessary to influence the destiny of this once-great nation. Where does he think the money wil magically come from to do as he proposes, if the government has already "maxed out" it credit cards. Of course, like all liberal Democrats, he wants to raise taxes to keep the governmnet workers on the job, and inreas entitlements, and increase tax rates on business.....which he thinks is going to encourage them to increase their hiring capacity??? This guy has his head up a place where the sun will never find it!

Obama Officials Will Brief Public on Which Bills Will Be Paid, Which Not, After Markets Close Friday

Officials Will Brief Public on Which Bills Will Be Paid, Which Not, After Markets Close Friday

ABC News

If there is no clear path out of this morass by tomorrow, sources say that administration officials will likely brief the public on how the Treasury Department will try to handle the bills Congress mandates that the government pay given a situation where Congress has not given them a way to do so.

Look for that briefing to come no earlier than Friday after the markets close at 4 p.m. ET, sources say.

Officials are most concerned about paying the interest on the existing debt, since failure to do so would result in default and almost certain immediate market panic, as well as questions about how Treasury would be able to roll over a pre-existing $87 billion in debt that comes due next week.

After that — a list of priorities, not all of which that can be met. Social Security checks? Medicare? Government workers? Pentagon contractors? Troops’ salaries? The FBI?

Vice President Joe Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell have been talking privately about a possible way forward should Boehner’s bill fail in the Senate, which seems likely, according to sources familiar with the talks.

Any path forward if the House GOP bill fails in the Senate would likely be some compromise between the House Speaker John Boehner’s bill that would raise the debt ceiling for six months and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s, which would raise it through the beginning of 2013. Their two proposals each seem doomed to fail in the other’s chamber.

U.S. Troops in Mideast Given Guidance on Ramadan

Troops in Mideast given guidance on Ramadan

Stars and Stripes

As Muslims prepare to observe the holy month of Ramadan with fasting and prayer, U.S. troops across the Middle East are being reminded to respect the customs of the societies around them. Among the guidelines: Do not eat, drink, smoke or chew gum in public during the daily fast, and dress appropriately: no shorts or short skirts.

During Ramadan, which this year begins Aug. 1, Muslims refrain from eating or drinking between sunup and sundown.

Among guidance issued to U.S. military deployed in Muslim majority countries, the Bahrain-based command of U.S. Navy 5th Fleet posted guidance for sailors and their family members to heed during Ramadan when off base.

U.S. personnel are not expected to fast during Ramadan, but community members must refrain from eating, chewing gum, drinking water, smoking or chewing tobacco in public during daylight hours, according to 5th Fleet. “‘In public’ includes riding in a bus or car (even your own), walking or exercising,” according to the 5th Fleet’s Facebook page. “Eating, drinking or smoking by a non-Muslim in public during the day is considered a civil offence by many local laws, which may result in a fine or confinement.”

Alcohol consumption by U.S. military personnel in any off-base venue is prohibited during the holiday, with the exception of USO/MWR facilities, private off-base dwellings, or hotel rooms occupied by troops who are transferring or on a business trip.

Shorts are prohibited while off base during Ramadan as well, according to 5th Fleet, and women are required to wear pants or skirts long enough to cover their knees when seated.

Fifth Fleet spokesman Lt. Frederick Martin said this week that the command sends out Ramadan guidance annually.

“When in public, both in Bahrain and elsewhere in the 5th Fleet area of operations, Ramadan brings increased cultural and legal restrictions, which we, as guests in these countries, are expected to adhere to,” Martin said in an email.

In Kuwait and Qatar, U.S. 3rd Army provides training to troops, and also instructs them not to eat, drink, smoke or chew tobacco while off-base, spokesman Capt. James Sweeney said in an email.

“They are also warned that these actions are punishable under local law,” he said.

In Iraq, personnel are encouraged not to eat, drink or smoke in the presence of Muslims during the daytime hours, according to U.S. Forces-Iraq spokesman 1st Lt. Joseph Larrew.

“Also, any troops conducting meetings with Iraqis are encouraged to do so earlier in the day to be considerate to their needs,” he said in an email.

While NATO troops in the field across Afghanistan are not restricted from eating, drinking or smoking outside the wire, they are made aware of the holiday, according to Air Force Maj. Deb Balentine, a spokesman for the coalition’s International Security Assistance Force.

Troops are encouraged to be sensitive to the importance of fasting and not to eat or drink in front of Afghan citizens, she said.

They are also told to be aware of the limits fasting may put on Afghan police or soldiers’ abilities to conduct operations or train, she said.

A Defense Department press release Tuesday said Afghan soldiers and Marines from 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment in Helmand province were planning to distribute more than 1,200 bags of wheat grain to the local population.

“The Ramadan holiday is part of the daily life of every Afghan person,” 1st Lt. Paul Mooney, the assistant civil affairs team leader for 1/3, said in the release. “Showing we respect the holiday will help the perception of Marines to positively change.”


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

First I would like to correct the writter of this story right off the bat THERE IS NOTHING HOLY ABOUT ISLAM……it was concieved and written by none other the devil!


To fail to put the same sort of demands on muslim countries as they try to put on us, and think that this “oh, if we just show them more respect they will do the same” bullshit is going to work, is naive and outright stupid!

“Eating, drinking or smoking by a non-Muslim in public during the day is considered a civil offence by many local laws, which may result in a fine or confinement.”

Cautioning them about abiding by local laws. I reallize it is very important for our troops to know the enemy and how they think and how they do things. Iti would be stupid not to. But there is something wrong I think when it comes to stopping our troops from drinking much needed water when they need it or being punished for it.

Then this really ticks me off too, when these people come to live in our country they want to be made an exception of in their head wear like that woman that would not take a photo without her stupid habib ( spelling ) on and it went to court to force her to obey our laws for a drivers license. They run off to CAIR at the drop of a hat to sue companies that won't give in to THEIR ways, THEIR demands and do not conform to the country they live in. THAT is a big difference then our troops serving our country in the mideast trying to stay alive, they are not their because they moved their to live for pete's sake. sheesh

AWOL Muslim Soldier Planned Attack On Fort Hood Personnel ~ Another One Allowed Into Our Military!


July 28, 2011

A tip from a Killeen gun dealer led to the arrest of an AWOL Muslim soldier who had firearms and bomb-making components in his hotel room and planned an attack on Fort Hood personnel, Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, said Thursday.

Army Pvt. Naser Jason Abdo, 21, who was AWOL from Fort Campbell, Ky., was arrested Wednesday in Killeen on an outstanding child pornography warrant.

Abdo was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division’s Company E, 1st Brigade Combat Team (Rear Provisional) at the time of his arrest.

Carter told News 10 Thursday afternoon that the soldier planned to detonate two bombs at an unnamed restaurant near the post that Fort Hood personnel frequent and then planned to open fire on the diners.

“He was planning on going into a restaurant someplace that was heavily traveled by soldiers, set off the two bombs then come back in and finish everybody off with his gun,” Carter said.

Carter said Abdo had broken into an adjoining hotel room and was in the process of "cooking" the bombs at the time of his arrest.

During a news conference Thursday afternoon, Killeen Police Chief Dennis Baldwin confirmed that “military personnel were the target of this suspect,” but declined to provide further details.

Killeen police arrested Abdo Wednesday afternoon at America's Best Value Inn on South Fort Hood Street after an investigation that started with a tip from a local gun shop on Tuesday.

Abdo remained in the Killeen City Jail Thursday afternoon.

FBI spokesman Erik Vasys said Thursday that firearms and "items that could be identified as bomb-making components, including gunpowder" were removed from his hotel room.

CNN reported that authorities also recovered pressure cookers, 18 pounds of sugar that could have been used to enhance an explosive, Christmas lights that could have been used as a timer for a bomb, and Jihadist literature.

Sources told CNN enough material was recovered to have made two bombs.

An alert issued by the Army said Abdo admitted he planned an attack on Fort Hood.

The Associated Press obtained the e-mail alert that was sent to all Army units Thursday.

It said Abdo had a large quantity of ammunition, weapons and a bomb inside a backpack.

It said he admitted under questioning that he planned an attack on Fort Hood.

Unconfirmed reports suggested that two other soldiers have also been arrested, but Baldwin said Thursday, "As far as we know, he did act alone."

Authorities at Fort Campbell interrogated two of Abdo’s friends, Carter said, but there was no evidence either was involved.

Abdo, who’s from Garland, joined the Army in March 2009.

He went AWOL on July 4, on the eve of his first deployment to Afghanistan.

“Thanks to quick action by a Texas gun dealer in alerting local police to a suspicious character and vigorous response by the Killeen Police Department, we may well have averted a repeat of the tragic 2009 radical Islamic attack on our nation’s largest military installation,” Carter said.

Carter’s office said it received information that Guns Galore in Killeen, which is the same store at which accused Fort Hood gunman Maj. Nidal Hasan purchased weapons used in the November 2009 attack at the post’s Soldier Readiness Center, called Killeen police to report that a man had purchased gunpowder, shotgun ammunition and a magazine for a semi-automatic handgun.

Carter’s office said the man also purchased uniforms with Fort Hood unit patches from a local surplus store.

“On questioning, the suspect reportedly admitted planning an attack on Fort Hood,” Carter said.

Greg Ebert of the gun shop, Guns Galore, said the man authorities identified as Abdo asked about smokeless gunpowder, what it could be used for and how it worked Tuesday.

Ebert said the man purchased six 1-pound canisters of the smokeless powder, three boxes of .12 gauge shotgun shells and a handgun magazine.

He paid in cash and left in a hurry, leaving his change behind.

Ebert, who retired from the Killeen Police Department last year after 17 years on the force, said the purchase came to about $250.

Police reviewed surveillance video from the store, which showed the man arrived and departed in a cab.

Fort Hood Thursday acknowledged the arrest, but referred questions to the Killeen Police Department.

“At this time, there has been no incident at Fort Hood,” the statement said.

“We continue our diligence in keeping our force protection at appropriate levels,” the post said.

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, praised authorities for their handling of the situation.

“Yesterday’s incident is yet another reminder that we must stay vigilant against those who wish to attack innocent Americans,” he said.

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, praised residents and police for their vigilance.

“His arrest is a perfect example of how alert citizens and dedicated law enforcement personnel can work together to prevent a potential terrorist attack in our own backyard,” she said.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry called the arrest “a sobering reminder of the importance of remaining vigilant in the ongoing efforts to protect our communities from those that would do us harm.”

“Quick and diligent efforts like these save lives, and we are reminded to be thankful for our peace officers, and their continued dedication to keeping our communities and families safe,” Perry said.

“This incident also underscores the importance of citizens reporting something that doesn’t seem quite right immediately to law enforcement,” he said.

Abdo was the subject of an Al-Jazeera report in August 2010 in which he told an interviewer he didn’t think he could “take part in any way in the killing of a Muslim.

According to the website, Abdo sought conscientious objector status in June 2010.

An article on the website says Abdo “experienced a great deal of harassment and discrimination” because of his beliefs.

"Early in basic training… one soldier repeatedly insulted me and Islam saying, 'Go pray to your god that doesn't exist or your pedophile prophet,'” the article quoted Abdo as saying.

“The climax of this harassment occurred when my comrades all made a concerted effort to get me an unwanted discharge because I was not welcome in their ranks,” Abdo said.

Army spokesman Troy Roland said Thursday the application for conscientious objector status was approved and that Abdo was about to be discharged when the child pornography allegations surfaced.

After a hearing on June 15, Roland said, an investigating officer recommended that Abdo be referred for court-martial.

Abdo has said he thought he was charged with a crime because he sought to leave the Army as a conscientious objector.

A website was created to raise funds for his defense, but it appeared to be down Thursday morning.

James Branum, the lawyer who represents Abdo in both his conscientious objector application and the child pornography case, posted a statement on his Facebook page Thursday.

“I represented him on two prior cases (his C.O. claim and the charges against him for possession of child pornography, but I am not representing him on the new charges that are being reported in the press and have no comments to make to the press about these new charges,” he said.

GOP Watches Ben Affleck's "The Town" to Rally Behind Debt Plan Then Schumer Becomes Cry Baby!

GOP watches Ben Affleck's "The Town" to rally behind debt plan

CBS News

Even before the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said House Speaker John Boehner’s debt plan may cut less in spending than it initially promised, selling the plan to conservative Republicans was proving to be a challenge.

In an attempt to rally their Tea Party-backed conservative members, Republican leaders opened a Tuesday morning meeting with a clip of the movie “The Town,” the Washington Post first reported.

The 2010 flick is about Boston bank robbers, and the scene that House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., played to the House GOP caucus depicts two characters about to go beat people up.

In that scene, Ben Affleck’s character says, “I need your help. I can’t tell you what it is. You can never ask me about it later.” In its reporting, the Post left out Affleck’s next line: “We’re gonna hurt some people.”

The character played by Jeremy Lee Renner replies, “Whose car we takin’?”

After viewing the clip, Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., replied, “I’m ready to drive the car.”

West’s office confirms that the Tea Party-backed congressman did give that spirited reply and still backs Boehner’s deficit reduction plan.


LOL Schumer is all upset. hahaha ~ Wiild Thing

"In the scene they chose to inspire their House freshmen, one of the crooks gives a pep talk to the other, right before they both put on hockey masks, bludgeon two men with sticks, an shoot a man in the leg!" Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said today. "Literally, in the movie the protagonists say, "people are going to get hurt," but they have to go ahead and do it anyway. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your House majority."


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

I do have to say I really admire and love the way Allen West gets how much we need strong people to save our country. I love his take no prisoner attitude he has on the things he believes in. He really stood up for Israel and I was so proud of him. and he has stood up for a lot of other things that needed to be said too.

One more thing I guess we are not alllowed to take breath without permission from the democrats. I have had it with them all of them including their president.

Bring on the movies like this and let the democrats wet their pants in fear, I could care less. They continue to bash, slander, lie about Republicans and their idiot brain dead voters believe their lies.

I have to tell you, when I bought my first computer it was during the Bill Clinton regime. I wanted to be able to go to varioius forms online and post information about Clinton I could find and stand up for America. So I have been in my own very small way fighting back against Democrats for a long time and I have hit the wall when it comes to having enough of their crap. They are defending a man ( obama) that is out to destroy our country and all of us.

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan and Rep. Allen West Supporting Boehner's Bill

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan making the case for supporting House Speaker John Boehner’s bill to raise the U.S. Debt Limit, and cutting spending by more than the Debt Limit is being raised.

Ryan said the bill is not all he or other GOP leaders want it to be, but it is far better than anything envisioned when they started the process. It does not have tax increases, and it requires spending cuts that more than equal the amount the Debt Limit is being increased.

Ryan thinks the Democrats are blustering about the Boehner Bill being dead on arrival in the Senate because they don’t want any House Democrats to vote for it. Ryan believes if the House passes the Boehner bill in an expected vote tomorrow, it does have a good chance of passing in the Senate, and that Obama would have to sign it.


Rep. Allen West Supports Boehner’s Plan; Calls It the “70-75% Solution”

Congressman Allen West tells Neil Cavuto that he supports John Boehner’s plan even though it’s not 100%. West said, “We can sit around and we can kvetch about coming up with the 100% plan, but we’re wasting time. I believe this is the plan that gives us the 70-75% solution.”


This is taken from Speaker Boehner's website


“Listen, it’s time to do what is doable, and this bill isn’t perfect. … That’s what happens when you have a Democrat-controlled Senate and a Democrat in the white House. This bill was agreed to by the bipartisan Senate leadership, and we believe we can get this on the president’s desk, and make it law. Listen, we’re not going to give him a $2.5 trillion blank check that lets him continue his spending binge through the next election. That’s not going to happen.”


“I think what people want is Cut, Cap, and Balance. It’s what I want. The House passed it last week. The Senate demonstrated they can’t pass it. At this point in time we’ve got to find a vehicle that will pass that will insist the cuts in spending are bigger than the increase in the debt limit. … The path we’ve been on here for the last four days I think is a reasonable path that will solve the problem, that will begin the process of the making the tough decisions that need to be made to cut spending here in Washington. … The plan we have got on the table is the best opportunity we have to hold the president’s feet to the fire. He wants a $2.4 trillion blank check that lets him continue his spending binge through the next election. This is the time to say no.”

The Tax and Spend Party the Democrats Sign Letter Stating They Will Reject Boehner's Bill, Democrats Prefer To Let America Go To Hell

All 53 Senate Democrats signed a letter tonight to House Speaker John Boehner saying essentially that they would rather the US default on its debt than pass the House GOP plan that would cut spending and force another vote next year.

Senate Democrats Promise to Reject Boehner Plan

New York Times

Fifty-three Democratic senators have signed a letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner saying they intend to vote against his plan for an increase in the debt ceiling, virtually assuring its defeat in the Senate even as the speaker lines up Republican votes to pass it in the House on Thursday.

Votes are not final until they are cast. But if the Democrats hold to their promise in the letter, Mr. Boehner’s plan for a six-month increase in borrowing authority will not make it to President Obama’s desk.

“We heard that in your caucus you said the Senate will support your bill,” the senators say in the letter. “We are writing to tell you that we will not support it, and give you the reasons why.”

In the letter, the senators argue that a short-term extension of the debt ceiling would “put America at risk” and “could be nearly as disastrous as a default.”

All Mouth and No Brain, Ugly Vile Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz Lashes Out At Republicans For Wanting To Cut Spending and Reduce Debt

Debbie Wasserman Schultz says GOP seeks ‘dictatorship … spark panic'


Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Wednesday that House Republicans are trying to impose “dictatorship” through their tactics in the debt-ceiling negotiations. She said the GOP rhetoric could “spark panic and chaos,” which she called “potentially devastating” to the economy.

The chair telephoned POLITICO to express “significant disappointment in where … Republicans have allowed this debate to degenerate.”

“Aren’t we at the point where the closer we get to chaos, the more concern that there should be about coming to the table and compromising with Democrats?” Wasserman Schultz asked. “This is not leadership. This is almost like dictatorship. I know they want to force the outcome that … their extremists would like to impose. But they are getting ready to spark panic and chaos, and they seem to be OK with that. And it’s just really disappointing, and potentially devastating.”

Specifically, Wasserman Schultz cited a movie clip House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) had played Tuesday during a closed-door meeting of the House Republican Conference. The brief clip was from “The Town,” and Republicans said it was intended to send the message that “we’re all in this together.”

The DNC chair said: “They start the day with trying to incite their caucus with, essentially, violent movie clips – pushing their people to inflict pain and hurt people.”

Texas Congressman: Obama Administration Continue To Ban The Word God At Funerals Of Heroes

FOX News Radio

Texas lawmaker is calling for a Congressional investigation of the Houston National Cemetery after he went undercover and determined that cemetery officials are still preventing Christian prayers at the funerals of military veterans.

“The Obama administration continues to try to prevent the word ‘God’ from being used at the funerals of our heroes,” said. Rep. John Culberson (R-TX). “It’s unacceptable and I’m going to put a stop to it as fast as humanly possible.”

Culberson told Fox News Radio he attended a burial service at the cemetery under cover on July 8 where he said volunteer members of the honor guard from the Veterans of Foreign Wars were prohibited from using any references to God.

“The Obama administration had told the nation and me they were not interfering with the prayer said over the graves of veterans,” he said. “And I went undercover to personally verify that claim.”

V.A. officials have strongly denied they’ve banned any religious speech — and have offered support for Arleen Ocasio, the cemetery’s director.

Culberson said the commander of the honor guard was told to by cemetery officials to approach a grieving widow to reconfirm that she wanted the word God mentioned at her husband’s graveside service.

“He quite correctly said as a Texan and a man of honor and integrity, ‘I’m not bothering that poor woman at this most terrible time of her life. We’re going to do the ritual,’” Culberson said. “Right in front of me, the V.A. directly and deliberately attempted to prevent the VFW from doing their magnificent, spiritual ritual over the grave of this fallen hero.

The cemetery is already the focus of a lawsuit filed on behalf of the VFW, an American Legion post and Houston’s National Memorial Ladies. They claim the V.A. banned members of the organizations from using the words “God” or “Jesus” at burial services. They also allege they were banned from reciting prayers or using religious language during services unless families approved the text in advance.

Culberson, who oversees the sub-committee responsible for funding the cemetery, said that he wants the cemetery director fired – and he’s willing to do whatever possible to make sure that happens.

“The cemetery director has to leave,” he said. “I will zero out her salary. If she attempts to work for the VA anywhere in the state of Texas her salary will be zero.”

“It makes my skin crawl that liberals are attempting to drive prayer out of a funeral ceremony for our heroes,” Culberson said. “We’re going to fix this so that no Obama liberal bureaucrat will interfere with the funeral of a hero.”

Culberson said he hopes to hold hearings on the cemetery in the fall.

“It makes my skin crawl that liberals are attempting to drive prayer out of a funeral ceremony for our heroes,” he said. “They will bury 10 to 20 American heroes today and the Obama administration is preventing prayers from being said over their gravesites – today.”

Very glad to see Culberson going after this cemetery director like he is and anyone else caught lying about this should be fired. And I hope Rep. Culberson gets Arleen Ocasio fired asap!!

“I will zero out her salary. If she attempts to work for the VA anywhere in the state of Texas her salary will be zero.”

Culberson's good idea to stop paying Arleen Ocasio's salary she is vile and on direct orders from obama.

Thank God for Republicans, I am so sick of democrats destroying everything in our country.

72-Year-Old Retired U.S. Marine Robbed At Gunpoint; Runs Down, Kills Thug

72-Year-Old Retired U.S. Marine Robbed At Gunpoint; Runs Down, Kill

A man who robbed a 72-year-old Texas business owner at gunpoint is dead after the owner, a Marine Corps veteran, jumped in his car and chased after him, ramming him against a metal fence.

According to the Houston Chronicle, a tall man forced his way into Kenneth Kobobel, Sr.’s office Friday morning where Kobobel had been chatting with his brother. He put a 9mm handgun to Kobobel’s head, demanded money from them and screamed “You’re dead!”

He emptied the contents of the brother’s wallet and Kobobel handed him $20. Not satisfied with the amount, Kobobel said the man patted him down and upon finding a wad of bills totaling $800 yelled, “You lied to me! You’re dead!”

Kobobel said robber struck him on the head with the barrel of the gun and ran off, warning them to wait before calling 911.

Once he left, Kobobel called 911 and went outside, asking neighbors if they had seen which way he went. He then got into his car and sped off in pursuit.

Kobobel’s son, Kenneth Kobobel, Jr., who pulled up just as his father was leaving, said he wasn’t surprised his father went after the robber.

“He’s an ex-Marine,” he told the Chronicle. “He doesn’t put up with a whole lot of nothing.”

Kobobel said he spotted the robber in a strip mall parking lot, and when the robber saw Kobobel coming he raised his gun and fired at least once. Kobobel rammed him with his car, then did so again when the man prepared to fire again.

Police are calling details about the incident sketchy and are trying to determine if another vehicle might have assisted Kobobel.

Once Kobobel got out of his car, he said he saw the man lying on the ground and kicked the gun away.

“I thought it was good that I caught this jerk who’d robbed me,” Kobobel told the Chronicle. “But what I didn’t like was that this man was laying there and his life was ebbing away. I’m a Christian, and I wouldn’t want to see anybody die.”

Good for this Marine! If more thugs were taken down like this it would discourage it happening so often. The liberal judges let them out of jail and back on the street.

Hey Obama! “It’s the spending stupid!”

Sarah Palin weighed in on the debt debate again on Greta Van Susteren’s Fox News show Tuesday night, calling President Obama’s handling of the situation “more Obama drama.”

“Scaring the American people is exactly what President Obama is doing in that bizarre speech he gave last night,” she said. “He’s getting pretty good at this fear-mongering.”

Palin characterized the Aug. 2 deadline as “looming, but it’s not Armageddon, it’s not life or death.”

Her solution to the problem?

“It’s the spending, stupid,” she said. “President Obama does not know what he is doing when we ask him to lead us out of this situation we’re facing with bankruptcy.”

Obama knows exactly what he is doing, he wants to destroy our country and then blame the Republicans. There still are enough of his followers that will believe him. AUGH!

“Stop your policies in Washington that are wrecking the American economy… We know the spending is the problem here.

Another one of the good guys on the side of America speaking out. Obama has made it very clear he has a special hate for Eric Cantor so I would bet he ( obama) will be a tad ticked off by what he has said. Good for Eric!

Obama The Eternal Racist That Would Doom All Americans To Tax Slavery Said: "I’m Dealing with Debt Issue Like Lincoln Dealt with Slavery"

At the University of Maryland last week, Obama talked with some students and actually compared the way he is trying to handle the Debt Limit negotiations to the way President Abraham Lincoln handled the Emancipation Proclamation!

Obama: I’m Dealing with Debt Issue Like Lincoln Dealt with Slavery

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

OMG he is insane, his ego is so huge he has lost his freaking mind. How someone with so very little real substance got such an ego is beyond me. His accomploishments have all been as destruction of a great nation, certainly not something to admire or look up to.

Obama, let's make this abundantly clear. The debt ceiling is there so that government lives within the means of the taxpayers. Overspending at the current rate would doom all American citizens to de facto tax slavery to overseas creditors like China.

Why does Obama always bring up Lincoln, his black ancestors had nothing to do with it. His daddy was a muslim from Africa, last I checked the muslims in Africa are still in the slave trade.

Obama has already enslaved the next two generations with your socialism gone wild!

Charles Krauthammer: "I Thought I Was Cynical Until I Heard Obama's Speech"

Host Bret Baier noticed that Charles was shaking his head throughout the speech and asks him about it. "It was purely partisan. It was meant as a campaign speech. And I think it was a speech from yesterday” Krauthammer says. He points out one thing that I noticed about Obama's meaningless speech to the nation -he blames Bush right off the bat.

Do Not Raise The Debt Ceiling! by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

Do Not Raise The Debt Ceiling!

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired


When Obama told us that he would "totally change the economic system;" "totally change America;" and "totally change the world," he wasn't kidding. There has been much speculation that he "doesn't know what he is doing." In a sense they are right, but in one thing they are dead wrong and that is he intends to carry out his promises as they pertain to the country's economic system, its social system and how America fits into the international order. To think otherwise is to ignore the obvious.

Observing the United States of America destroy itself from within is one of the most heart rending, angering, events imaginable, but it is happening. Several years ago, I included sarcastic comments in an essay for the benefit of Osama bin Laden, exhorting him to be patient because all he had to do was wait and the US would destroy itself. Tragically, that sarcastic admonition is in advanced stages of coming to fruition.

The USA, once the economic envy of the world is fast becoming its whipping boy, its laughing stock, and its economic and social black hole. Once the defender of righteousness and good, it is declining into a pit of self-delusion, over-indulgence and Rome; except that it took Rome longer to fall than the length of United States history from its founding, to date.

The International Monetary Fund is based on the U.S. Dollar but if one has been paying attention of late, there have been some heavy weights that have called for a change from the dollar to some other form of international currency. Even light-weight, Islamo-facist Iran made similar calls during the past year. And despite Obama's now comical overtures directly to the Iranian people; his embarrassing "reset" with Russia; whatever gimmick he comes up with for China; his wild inflationary spending, dollar devaluing; financial markets takeover intended to generate pressure for a "total change to the world economic system," Obama voters told voters what he intended, now he is delivering. So, why the surprise?

In an AP article dated March 21, 2009, by Andrew Taylor, "Agenda on Track Despite Worsening Deficits" Taylor explains the projection of Obama Administration multi-trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see. Deficits of that magnitude were not caused by the "failed policies of the Bush Administration" about which Democrat Candidate B. Hussein Obama railed with regularity during the 2008 election cycle. Whereas it had its beginning during the Bush Administration, the magnitude and scope of the present crisis is entirely and directly attributable to Obama's initiatives.

Bush Administration deficits were child's play, at $500 billion annually, by comparison to Obama's who in league with the socialists in Congress planned the failed multi-trillion dollar spending spree; which incidentally began with his $787 Billion "Stimulus Bill," followed by the $410 billion Omnibus, earmark-bloated spending Bill. Both of which are on top of the Bush Administrations paltry $138 billion stimulus bill and the $70 billion dollar bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and $30 billion Bear Stearns bailout.

In a laughable moment during a White House Press Conference Obama stated that we would move the economy from "borrow and spend to save and invest," this on the heels of the largest expansion of government spending in history. Of course leftist and RINO "lemmings" lapped it up, but reality is that the statement was made on the heels of ten year projections of multi-trillion dollar deficits. So, either Mr. Obama didn't have a clue, or he was, in a word, "prevaricating." Worse yet, there is plenty of circumstantial evidence that Obama and Democrats intentionally overspent to bring the dollar and economy to bankruptcy so that people will beg for a complete government takeover. And what would such a takeover be called, a bailout; or the advent of totalitarian communism?

Democrats and Obama repeatedly bashed President Bush for his "failed economic policies" for, "tax breaks for the rich," "excessive spending" (if one can believe that coming from Democrats, and the cost of the "unnecessary" War on Terror, albeit we are still at it notwithstanding Obama’s pledge that we would be out within three months of his taking office). Their stated theory was that if the rich had been adequately taxed there would be no need for deficit spending and associated borrowing. They point to the "surplus" from the Clinton years to the deficit in the Bush years to buttress their argument. Additionally, they blame the cost of the War on Terror as contributing to increased deficits and National Debt. If that was the case, why are we still engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan? Heck, he’s even started a third one in Libya. (Aside: No amount of bombing short of a willingness to bomb Libya back to the Stone Age will remove Gaddafi, and even then it will likely not succeed.)

Why are the rich still benefiting from the Bush tax cuts, which Obama now, again, wants to stop, although six months ago he favored extending to save the economy? Wasn’t all this nonsense supposed to stop the moment he took office? Of course that was campaign rhetoric but he does continue working feverishly to "totally change the economic system," this time with another massive incremental increase in the Debt Ceiling.

With the benefit of a "retrospectrascope," it is fact that the downturn in the economy began when Democrats took over the Congress in 2007 after six straight years of economic growth under the Bush White House and Republican Congress. Further, Democrats including Obama voted in favor of the "Bush" stimulus bill and the bailouts for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Bear Sterns albeit those did not ignite the recession, that “miraculous” event was accomplished by the collapse of the housing sector thanks to Congressman Barney Frank and Senator Chris Dodd, both Democrats.

Obama repeatedly blamed President Bush for the "hand he was dealt," which like all good prevarications, contained elements of truth. But from the beginning he didn't divulge that his budget deficit projections were in the trillions of dollars, not for one budget or election cycle, but as far as the economic eye could see. All the while he smoothly intoned that he would cut the deficit in half by the end of his "first" term albeit with any luck at all, there won’t be a second term. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how he planned to do it.

How could Obama possibly cut the deficit in half by the end of his term? After piling up enormous deficits for several years, all it would take to fulfill his promise to reduce the deficit by half during his first term would be to cut the obscene spending during his last year in office, and Voila! The deficit would be cut in half. Far fetched? Does one think he might be leading up to it in ongoing budget negotiations? Anyone care to bet a dinner for four at Ruth's Chris Steak House? The reason he is resisting so mightily at this time is because the timing isn’t right to achieve the desired effect in the forthcoming elections.

In the event that Obama eventually agrees to cut the quadruple inflated budget in half, he would still be devaluing the dollar at a rate that is more than double that of the Bush years, but will have kept his promise to reduce the budget deficit in half (albeit there has not been a budget for the entire time Obama has been in office thanks to continuing resolutions by Democrats under Pelosi leadership).

The Unites States is on the cusp of a game of political chicken as has never before happened in this Nation. At stake is whether or not the U.S. will be brought to its economic knees by a President and Democrats who are in point of fact working to bring about a socialist/communist state with them in perpetual charge. Or will Republicans and conservatives in the Congress have the spine and skill to stay the course of economic freedom and emerge victorious over tyranny cloaked as populism.

There is plenty of current income for the Federal Government to pay its obligations! THE DEBT CEILING DOES NOT HAVE TO BE RAISED, OBAMA KNOWS IT, GEITHNER KNOWS IT AND ANYONE WHO IS PAYING ATTENTION KNOWS IT! If it goes south without a raise in the Debt Ceiling, it is because Obama chose to do it in the way he prioritized spending. Eliminating the 400 thousand jobs he has added to the Federal Government since he took office would go a long way toward reducing the deficit/addition to the National Debt.

This fight is not about money, it is about changing the character and structure of the United States of America. U.S. citizens who believe in economic freedom should make your thoughts known to your Congressman and Senators! Otherwise, stand by for the fast ride into a Cuba, Russia, China, or some other "workers paradise."

Semper Fidelis.
Bob Pappas

Good one by the Col..

Ever since Obama won the election our country has been in a socialist spiral and the left has been winning everything they want and none of it is good for our country. I hope and pray people keep calling and, if our side thinks we have gone into apathy like so many used to be ( no one on here but so many others were ) then our elected politicians will cave. They might cave anyway, but we can't give up on this.

Response From House Speaker John Boehner

House Speaker John Boehner responding to Obama’s address to the nation on the Debt Limit.

Boehner spoke briefly, but effectively. He made it clear there would be no increase in the Debt Limit without accompanying spending cuts. Boehner explained that Obama rejected the “Cut, Cap, and Balance” bill passed by the House, saying Obama has been unwilling to “take yes for an answer.” Obama wants a “balanced approach,” Boehner said, which means, “We spend more, and you pay more.”

Obama “wants a blank check today,” Boehner said. “This is just not going to happen,” he stated.

Boehner made it clear that Obama is desperately trying to keep from dealing with the nation’s debt, and that it is on him if no debt limit increase is signed.

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

For the life of me I can't understand how anyone would still think Obama is a good president or would want him to stay in power.

Obama blamed Bush, tax cuts and “unpaid for” wars in his presidential address. It was the same speech we’ve heard a hundred times

Boehner gave a good response. I just want him be as strong as he knows we all keep asking him to be and not give in.

Obama is the one keeping this whole thing going. Obama is the one that will NOT to any cuts in spending. This is all at the feet of Obama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obama: I'd Like 'to Bypass Congress and Change the Rules on My Own'

Obama: I'd Like 'to Bypass Congress and Change the Rules on My Own'

National Journal

Obama let his frustration over the stalled debt talks seep into an address on Latino issues on Monday, confessing that he’d like to “bypass Congress and change the laws on my own.” He told the National Council of La Raza, “Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you.”

But he told the group meeting at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel that he has to work with Congress and will continue to fight for what he called a “balanced” plan that does not focus solely on spending cuts but that spreads the sacrifice to the wealthiest Americans as well.

La Raza—and activist Latinos elsewhere—are disappointed in the president for not keeping his promise to champion comprehensive immigration reform in his first year in office. They are particularly angry that his administration has been aggressive in deporting undocumented immigrants, but the president defended the record number of deportations, contending he has had no choice.

“Those are the laws on the books,” said Obama. “I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books. That doesn’t mean I don’t know very well the real pain and heartbreak that deportations cause.”

He added that he shares the concerns of Latinos. “I understand them and I promise you we are responding to your concerns and working every day to make sure we are enforcing flawed laws in the most humane and best possible way.”

His ''I'd like to change'' comment followed a section in his speech that mentioned the limitations of Washington in stopping deportations. He then spoke of his frustrations in dealing with Congress. His ''bypass Congress'' comment drew applause and chants of "Yes, You Can," a 2008 campaign slogan.

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

This is what happens...we push this POS anti-American scum and he starts telling the truth of how he really wants to run the government. FUBO!

Anyone paying attention should be alarmed by a remark like this from a sitting president, especially out of the mouth of this marxist.

Rep. LTC Allen West Gives A Great Speech About Leadership

Allen West called out the Republican Party for demonstrating years of passive leadership to its constituents and submissive behavior towards the Democrat Party.

Congressman Allen West has challenged the GOP establishment and openly stated that the Republican Party needs to regain its credibility and take an affirmative stand for core principles. The 2012 Republican National Convention will be held in Tampa, Florida, and Congressman West also challenged Florida Republicans to also take a stand and show the country,“how it’s gonna be done."

Obam Involved In Wisconsin Recalls And This Is From The Chicago Trubune

Barack Obama's team is involved with the Wisconsin RECALL campaigns against six Republican State Senators, effectively organizing the "ground game" for the RECALL effort.

Obama's political wing involved in Wisconsin recalls

Chicago Tribune

President Barack Obama's political arm at the Democratic National Committee is getting involved in the Wisconsin state Senate recall elections.

Obama's Organizing for America is pulling together volunteers in Madison this weekend to knock on doors and make phone calls in support of Democrats in eight recall elections.

The group sent an email Thursday night to supporters soliciting volunteers.

The group's Wisconsin field director says Organizing for America will be providing support to volunteers working on the recall elections. Six Republicans and two Democrats face recall elections next month.

Obama's group was also involved with helping to organize protests in Madison in February over Gov. Scott Walker's collective bargaining proposal, which spurred the recalls.

The Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama

We have uncovered countless evidence of Obama's involvement in these RECALLs and have been trying to get their activities exposed. You see, these RECALLs are all part of a master plan.

If Democrats win just 3 of the 6 RECALLs being waged against Republicans, here's what they will gain:

*They will take control of the State Legislature away from Republicans and be able to block Gov. Scott Walker's entire legislative agenda.

*They will then proceed with the already announced RECALL campaign to unseat Gov. Scott Walker.

*They will then have the political power in place to grab Wisconsin's 10 Electoral Votes in next year's presidential election.


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

The fact that Obama's political organization is in Wisconsin looking to corrupt the politics there is proof enough that we must never ever let our guard down. Obama does whatever he wants and the damage is huge and greater by the second.

Republicans Have Passed A Budget, and Passed a Plan to Raise the Nation’s Debit Ceiling Also Cutting Spending – Only to be Rejected by Obama

House Speaker John Boehner speaking forcefully on Fox News Sunday, where he blasted Obama and the Democrats for not having yet put forward any kind of plan to deal with the nation’s debt. He said Republicans have passed a budget, and passed a plan to raise the nation’s Debit Ceiling while also cutting spending – only to be rejected by Democrats.

John Boehner Blasts Obama for not presenting any plan on debt limit; “The House has Done Its Work. We’ve Passed a Budget. We’ve Passed a Plan”

“The GOP must protect the country from what the president is trying to orchestrate… GOP must stop him.”

“There was never any plan from the White House. The whole plan came from us. We laid out the framework. At some point, they’ve got to lay their cards on the table.”


FOX News

Obama invited Minority Leader Pelosi and Harry Reid to the White House for meetings Sunday night. Democrats have still not released their own debt plan.

Unable to find common ground, Republicans and Democrats worked Sunday to prepare separate fallback plans for raising the debt ceiling as they tried to provide some assurance to the global financial markets that the country will not default on its obligations.

Party leaders were huddling in their respective camps late Sunday as they weighed what can reasonably be accomplished before an Aug. 2 deadline.

“This is about what is doable at the 11th hour,” House Speaker John Boehner told “Fox News Sunday.”

As Boehner hosted a conference call with House Republicans, the White House invited House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid to the Oval Office for a meeting Sunday evening.

Back-channel talks have been rocky all day, and a Senate Democratic aide told Fox News that while those talks continue, Reid is now working on a separate fallback proposal. The plan would call for at least $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction — without revenue increases — and would extend U.S. borrowing authority until 2013. This would fulfill a White House demand that the debt ceiling be increased to last through the next election.

However, Boehner said Sunday that he wants a two-stage process. While he would not publicly detail what that entails, others have said it involves roughly a $1 trillion debt-ceiling increase now, coupled with commensurate spending cuts, and another set of votes early next year.

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

I just keep thinking if we had a conservative as president even with only one of the Houses majority Republican, this whole mess would not be happening. It would have been done correctly back when it was supposed to be done.

And of course there would not be any Geithner (no tax payer) in charge of anything.

Walter Reed To Close After More Than A Century

Walter Reed to close after more than a century


Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the Army's flagship hospital where privates to presidents have gone for care, is closing its doors after more than a century.

Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., many of them wounded warriors, make the five-mile move to the National Naval Medical Center.

The relocation will mark a historic moment in both iconic institutions’ histories and one of the final milestones before they officially merge to become the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The new Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, which the staff here refers to simply as “Walter Reed Bethesda,” promises to take military medicine to a whole new level as it provides a central hub for specialized care, Bitonti said.

Hundreds of thousands of the nation's war wounded from World War I to today have received treatment at Walter Reed, including 18,000 troops who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

President Dwight Eisenhower died there. So did Gens. John J. Pershing and Douglas MacArthur.

It's where countless celebrities, from Bob Hope to quarterback Tom Brady, have stopped to show their respect to the wounded. Through the use of medical diplomacy, the center also has tended to foreign leaders.

The storied hospital, which opened in 1909, was scarred by a 2007 scandal about substandard living conditions on its grounds for wounded troops in outpatient care and the red tape they faced. It led to improved care for the wounded, at Walter Reed and throughout the military. By then, however, plans were moving forward to close Walter Reed's campus.

Two years earlier, a government commission, noting that Walter Reed was showing its age, voted to close the facility and consolidate its operations with the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., and a hospital at Fort Belvoir, Va., to save money.

"For many of the staff members, even though they know that this is the future of the military health system, in a way, it's still like losing your favorite uncle, and so there is a certain amount of mourning that is going on and it is an emotional time," said Col. Norvell Coots, commander of the Walter Reed Health Care System.

The new facility will be called the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. It will consolidate many of Walter Reed's current offerings with the Navy hospital.

"Frankly, I will say it's with a heavy heart that Walter Reed closes. I don't know. I know that there was a process for that decision, but we've lost a great, important part of history," said Susan Eisenhower, granddaughter of the former president.

She recalled bringing to the hospital a birthday cake she had baked for her grandfather, who spent the last several months before his death in 1969 in a special suite where politicians and foreign leaders visited him.

There are countless pieces of history throughout the campus.

At the rose garden, some nurses from the Vietnam War era were said to have married their patients. The memorial chapel is where President Harry S. Truman went for his first church service after taking office, following a visit with Pershing, who lived in a suite at Walter Reed for several years, said John Pierce, historian for the Walter Reed Society.

A marker identifies the spot on the hospital grounds where, long before the hospital was built, Confederate sharpshooters fired near President Abraham Lincoln, leading an officer to call Lincoln a "damned fool" and order him to the ground, according a brochure produced by Walter Reed about its history.

President Calvin Coolidge's teenage son died in the hospital from an infected blister he received while playing tennis at the White House, Pierce said. A black and white photo from 1960 shows then-Sen. Lyndon Johnson, a vice presidential candidate at the time, visiting the bedside of Vice President Richard Nixon, who was being treated for a staph infection.

Presidents now are sent to Bethesda for treatment because it's considered more secure, said Sanders Marble, senior historian with the Office of Medical History at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

The hospital was named to honor Maj. Walter Reed, an Army physician who treated troops and American Indians on the frontier. Among his medical achievements was life-saving research that proved that yellow fever was spread by mosquito. He died in 1902 at age 51 of complications related to appendicitis with a friend and colleague, Lt. Col. William C. Borden, treating him.

"I'm sure (Borden) felt very guilty about that, and over the course of the next several years, he campaigned to get money for a new hospital and of course, wanted to name it for his good friend Walter Reed," Pierce said.

The original redbrick hospital had about 80 beds, but inpatient capacity grew by the thousands during the wars of the last century. Today, it treats about 775,000 outpatients annually, and has an inpatient load of about 150. It wasn't just service members and military retirees treated at the hospital over the decades, but their families, too. Countless babies were born at the hospital into the 1990s.

Rehabilitation for the wounded, including care for amputees, has been an important part of the mission since it opened. The wounded commonly spend a year or longer at the hospital now, although they are more quickly moved to outpatient care.

Photos from World War I show troops at Walter Reed learning skills such as typing and knitting. During World War II, brochures distributed to the war amputees featured pictures of amputees smoking and shaving. The message was, "Your life isn't over, don't get down," Marble said.

“National Naval Medical Center will go into the history books, just like Walter Reed Army Medical Center will go into the history books as we come together to form Walter Reed Bethesda,” Bitonti said. “This will be two powerhouses coming together to form a new powerhouse that is quantifiably better than either of them separately.”

Sad news and Walter Reed has touched so many of our lives.

They will officially merge to become the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

GOP Readies New Debt Ceiling Plan; Bill Set For Sunday ~ Community Organizer Obama On His Own Has NO Plan He Can Think Of

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is set to call the Democratic Party’s bluff on the debt ceiling. The Ohio Republican, in a briefing with his conference on Saturday, announced that he would press for a short-term deal, with major spending cuts paired with longer-term deficit-reduction strategies, as a way around the current impasse.

That strategy puts the speaker directly at odds with the White House and allied Democrats, who have insisted for weeks that they would not support a short-term extension of the debt ceiling. The president went so far as to dare House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to test his opposition to a temporary deal during a tense meeting more than a week ago.

GOP Readies New Debt Ceiling Plan; Bill Set For Sunday

Washington Examiner

House Republicans are set to release their two-part plan tomorrow.( Sunday)

House Republicans are finishing work on a new proposal to resolve the standoff over the debt ceiling. The proposal, set to be finished and crafted into the form of a bill by Sunday, will be in two parts. The first will combine a short-term increase in the debt ceiling with spending cuts. The second will lay the groundwork for a longer-term increase in the debt ceiling coupled with far-reaching deficit reduction.

“Senator Reid said on Friday that he is going to wait for us to move,” says a well-informed GOP House aide. “So we’ll move.” Another well-informed aide confirmed the basic outline of what’s happening.

Staff of the House Rules Committee is involved in the work, which is an indication that the process is nearing completion. Before any bill can be considered on the House floor, the Rules Committee must first pass a rule setting out the process for its consideration. Once the proposal is finished, it would likely be posted on the Rules Committee website, probably no later than Monday, so the committee could meet to consider it on Tuesday and it could be on the House floor by Wednesday.

Work on the new proposal was underway before negotiations with the White House blew up on Friday. Sources say the plan was being created last week, even as the House leadership devoted considerable time to passing the “Cut, Cap, and Balance” proposal. Once the Senate Democratic leadership blocked “Cut, Cap, and Balance,” House leaders stepped up work on the new proposal. Right now, the new direction is believed to be the only way forward. “McConnell-Reid is just not a viable option in the House,” the aide says, referring to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s complicated proposal to allow the president to increase the debt ceiling.

Obama wants a default, he's a community organizer. Community organizers love a crisis, as long as they think they can spin it to the disadvantage of their political enemies.

Democrat Rep. Wu (Oregon) Told To Resign Over Sex Scandal With Teen Daughter Of Longtime Friend and Campaign Donor

Earlier this year Wu shocked his staffers by sending them pictures of himself posing in a tiger costume. (NY Daily)

Oregon Live

An upset young woman called Congressman David Wu (D-OR) at his office this spring and accused him of an unwanted sexual encounter.
Oregon Live reported:

A distraught young woman called U.S. Rep. David Wu’s Portland office this spring, accusing him of an unwanted sexual encounter, according to multiple sources.

When confronted, the Oregon Democrat acknowledged a sexual encounter to his senior aides but insisted it was consensual, the sources said.

The woman is the daughter of a longtime friend and campaign donor. She apparently did not contact police at the time.


Democrat Rep. Wu (Oregon) Told To Resign Over Sex Scandal With Teen Daughter Of Longtime Friend and Campaign Donor


Pressure on Democratic Rep. David Wu, 56 years old, to resign intensified Saturday as leaders in his own party began confronting the embattled Oregon lawmaker over allegations that he had an unwanted sexual encounter last Thanksgiving with a young California woman.

Wu spent the day in private absorbing calls from party operatives and lawmakers in Oregon and Washington, D.C. Reaction ranged from public calls for his resignation and attacks on his character to more private conversation about what’s next for Wu.

The conversations were triggered by an incident first reported by The Oregonian on Friday in which Wu was involved in an unwanted and aggressive sexual encounter with the daughter of a longtime friend and campaign donor in California during a visit over Thanksgiving…

…The fallout Saturday from party leaders and opponents was a unified judgment that the seven-term member of the House had seriously jeopardized his ability to serve and could damage the party’s larger efforts in the 2012 election.

Among those contacting Wu was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who spoke with Wu by telephone on Saturday. The substance of the call was not disclosed. But a source with knowledge of the day’s conversations said a second party leader called Wu and urged him to resign.

In all, at least three senior party leaders in Washington spoke to Wu Saturday. Wu spent the day in Washington contemplating his future and had not come to a decision, several sources said.

Obama After 2 1/2 Years As President Still Has NO Plan Himself To Add To Discussions Instead Slams Republicans For Their Many Atempts

Video is his vile rant in case anyone would like to hear/see it . ~ Wild Thing

Obama blasts GOP, Boehner on debt: ‘We have run out of time’

A petulant and infuriated Obama in the White House Briefing Room , announcing that House Speaker John Boehner has broken off talks on doing a so-called “Big Deal” on the Debt Limit Crisis. Obama said, “we have now run out of time,” and he said he has ordered “Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and Harry Reid” to the White House Saturday morning to meet with him .

The Hill

The president, in possibly his most emotional and stern appearance to date, said in no uncertain terms that he is summoning congressional leaders to the White House on Saturday morning.

“I want them here at 11 o’clock tomorrow,” Obama said. “We have run out of time, and they are going to have to explain to me how it is we are going to default.”

Obama’s fury toward Boehner was on full display as he several times accused the Speaker of walking away from the talks.

“I’ve been left at the altar now a couple of times,” Obama said.

The president was angry on a number of counts, but he seemed especially miffed by Boehner’s refusal to communicate with him on Friday before he walked away from the table.

Obama said he had a “cordial” relationship with Boehner “up until sometime today when I couldn’t get a phone call returned.”

Reporter to Obama: "Can You Assure the American People That They Will Get Their Social Security Checks on August 3rd And If Not Who is To Blame?

This is a question from CNN's Jessica Yellin

Obama: "If congress, in particular the House Republicans are not willing to make sure that we avoid default, then I think it's fair to say that they would have to take responsibility for whatever problems arise in those payments"

Krauthammer Slams Obama for Angry Press Briefing: “This is Obama at His Most Sanctimonious, Demagogic, Self-Righteous and Arrogant”

Krauthammer reacting to President Obama’s arrogant and angry statement yesterday late afternoon in the White House Briefing Room on news that House Speaker John Boehner was breaking off talks with Obama on a “big” Debt Limit Deal.

He blasted Obama for essentially acting like a “Banana Republic” Dictator, in thinking he can order around leaders of Congress, which he pointed out, is a “co-equal” branch of government in our system:

“This is Obama at his most sanctimonious, demagogic, self-righteous and arrogant. And given the baseline, it wasn’t a pretty sight. Look, he started out by summoning the leaders of Congress – summoning them at 11:00. Who does he think he is? In the American system the Executive and Congress are co-equal. The way he demanded their appearance in the Oval Office I thought was disgraceful. . . . The President offered nothing except if you go in the back room my staff will give you tick-tock – a detail of everything I was supposed to have given. He has never once spoken about real cuts. And lastly, what was interesting is even at the late date where he says that the fate of the republic hangs on the debt ceiling extension, he said if given a short extension of say half a year, I won’t accept it. Why? Because he says I want this to go past Election Day. That is self-serving and political and he pretends he is the one who is not interested in politics.”

Conservative Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) told Martha MacCallum tonight that Obama’s performance today showed “he is not the adult in the room.”

“I never believed the president negotiated in good faith. If he was really serious about this, Martha, he would have been at the negotiating table six months ago. He would have presented a serious budget rather than the one he presented to us in February that would have added 12 trillion dollars to our debt and lost in the United States Senate 0 to 97.. His performance tonight showed that he certainly is not the adult in the room.”

John Boehner responds: Obama 'moved the goal posts'

Los Angeles Times

Speaker John Boehner said late Friday said it was the president who scuttled the plan.

"The White House moved the goal posts," he said, with Obama demanding $400 billion in revenues beyond what the two had already agreed to. "It's the president who walked away from his agreement and demanded more money at the last minute."

The Ohio Republican also said Democrats also weren't serious about cutting spending and true entitlement reform. He said dealing with the White House "is like dealing with a bowl of Jell-O."

Boehner said he would immediately begin working with fellow lawmakers to reach a solution to avoid a federal default. He said he would also attend the meeting Obama called for at the White House on Saturday.

"If the White House won't get serious, we will," he said.

Automakers Warn of Huge Job Losses Under OBAMA Fuel Efficiency Plan ~ Obama STOP Destroying Our Country!!!

Automakers Warn of Huge Job Losses Under Obama Fuel Efficiency Plan

FOX News

Automakers are pushing back against an Obama administration proposal that would almost double vehicle fuel-efficiency standards, launching a new ad campaign warning of hundreds of thousands of job losses across the country.

The White House has long been negotiating with automakers and environmentalists over the enormous increase in fuel efficiency standards. But the automakers, who say the standards would stagger the auto industry, appear to be losing faith in the possibility of a compromise.

Obama was hoping to get automakers to sign off on a nearly 100 percent increase in mileage standards by 2025, aiming for another Rose Garden announcement like the one in May 2009 when he announced they would raise it to 29.5 miles-per-gallon for model year 2012, on their way to 34 miles-per-gallon for 2016.

But now the White House has a much bigger goal in mind.

"They're floating ideas to increase this fuel efficiency standard to 56 miles per gallon fleet-wide by the year 2025, which would be a significant ramp-up, even from the fuel efficiency standards that we have set in place to 2016," said Nick Loris of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative Washington think tank.

But supporters of the increase, like Jack Gillis of the Consumer Federation of America, insist it's doable.

"Fifty six (miles-per-gallon) is a sweet spot that is both achievable, reasonable, highly beneficial in terms of as economic standpoint, and will meet the president's goals of dramatically reducing our dependence on foreign oil,” Gillis told Fox News.

But the automakers are balking, noting a federal agency called the Energy Information Administration predicted the increased standard would result in a 14 percent drop in sales.

"When manufacturers bring an advanced vehicle technology to market, consumers must be willing to buy it. There is a high level of uncertainty about consumer willingness to pay significantly higher prices for more fuel-efficient vehicles. In recent history, consumers have tended to value upgrades in performance, vehicle size, and other attributes at the expense of fuel economy," an agency report said.

"By the government's own study, (the new standards) will cost so much more that it will result in a loss of about 220,000 jobs," said Ed Tonkin, former president of the Automobile Dealers Association.

The automakers had been hoping for a compromise with the White House, but appear to be losing hope and have now launched a seven-state radio ad campaign.

"A sales drop means job losses and not just with automakers but at hundreds of auto parts suppliers, dealerships and repair facilities across the country," one of the ads says.

"The glass industry, the steel industry, the rubber industry," Tonkin said. "And it goes on and on and on. The financing industry, the delivery companies, the railroads that deliver these vehicles."

In fact, the auto industry argues it alone accounts for one of every five jobs in America.

But supporters of the new standard argue consumers will be drawn to more expensive hybrids because they'd save money in fuel costs.

"If you look at the ‘56-by-2025’ standard, you can save about $6,000 per vehicle because of the dramatic reduction in the cost of fuel for that vehicle," Gillis said. "If you force the market to implement certain technologies, they will figure out a way how to do it. And they'll figure out a way how to do it efficiently and effectively."

But consumers have shown little interest so far. The 30 hybrids now on the market only account for only 2.4 percent of sales. And last year, Ford sold almost twice as many F-150 pickups as all its hybrids put together.

So if consumers want pickups, sport utility vehicles and vans to take the kids to soccer, the automakers would face fines because they have no control over what people buy.

"So even though the government wants them to buy it, it doesn’t matter,” Tonkin said. "Consumer choice is what's going to matter."

Fuel efficiency standards do make allowances for larger vehicles but not enough, automakers say, to make the proposed standards workable.

One auto industry official put it this way: the new standards “are like dealing with the nation's obesity problem by forcing clothing manufacturers to sell only small sizes."


Wild Thing's comment......

Note to Union workers in the auto industry, and you want Obama to have a second term?????

The sad part is when and if these people have to be laid off yes it will be Obama's fault, but the true inncent people that will be hit are all the other businesses connected to the auto industry. Heck even the local diners and other places these people normally spend their money. It is always a ripple effect just like with the oil industry Obama has destroyed, and NASA etc.

Death Toll Rises to 91 After Pair of Attacks in Norway

Death Toll Rises to 91 in Norway Attacks

OSLO — The Norwegian police on Saturday charged a 32-year-old man, whom they identified as a Christian fundamentalist with right-wing connections, over the bombing of a government center here and a shooting attack on a nearby island that together left at least 91 people dead.

The police said they did not know if the man, identified in the Norwegian press as Anders Behring Breivik, was part of a larger conspiracy. He is being questioned under the country’s terrorism laws and is cooperating with the investigation, they said.

“We are not sure whether he was alone or had help,” a police official, Roger Andresen, said at a televised press conference, adding: “What we know is that he is right-wing and a Christian fundamentalist.” So far Mr. Breivik has not been linked to any anti-jihadist groups, he said.

The police said the suspect had used “a machine pistol” in the attack, but declined to provide further details.

Of the at least 84 people killed on the island, some were as young as 16, the police said on national television early Saturday. They said the death toll could rise further as they continue to search for bodies in the waters around the island.

Terrified youths jumped into the water to escape. “Kids have started to swim in a panic, and Utoya is far from the mainland,” said Bjorn Jarle Roberg-Larsen, a Labor Party member who spoke by phone with teenagers on the island, which has no bridge to the mainland. “Others are hiding. Those I spoke with don’t want to talk more. They’re scared to death.”

Many could not flee in time.

“He first shot people on the island,” a 15-year-old camper named Elise told The Associated Press. “Afterward he started shooting people in the water.”


Norway police seek to charge 3 over bomb plot


Norwegian security police are seeking charges against three men suspected of planning Scandinavian bomb attacks in an alleged plot with possible al Qaeda connections, state broadcaster NRK reported Friday.

After their arrest last July the three told different stories -- one admitting a plot to blow up China's embassy in Norway, one saying his target was a Danish newspaper that printed cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, and one professing his innocence.

The Norwegian Police Security Service had no immediate comment when contacted by Reuters Friday, and NRK did not say what charges the service proposed in a recommendation to Norway's prosecuting authority.

The presumed leader of the trio, Mikael Davud, an ethnic Uighur from China with Norwegian citizenship, "had plans for a bomb that was supposed to be exploded at the Chinese embassy," his attorney, Carl Rieber-Mohn, told NRK last September.

Suspect Shawan Sadek Saeed Bujak, an Iraqi Kurd with Norwegian residency, confessed to planning a bomb attack against Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper that published the Mohammad cartoons in 2005, the police have said.

The third suspect, David Jakobsen, an Uzbek with Norwegian residency, has denied any illegal activity and was released from custody in October after the Norwegian Supreme Court rejected a security service appeal to keep him jailed.

On announcing their arrest last year, security service chief Janne Kristiansen said: "We believe this group has had links to people abroad who can be linked to al Qaeda, and to people who are involved in investigations in other countries, among others the United States and Britain."

In a separate case, a Danish court Friday extended the detention of four men charged with plotting an act of terrorism against the paper that published the cartoons of the Prophet. The drawings, including one showing him with a bomb in his turban, caused widespread outrage among Muslims.

The 17-story building … also houses Norway’s biggest tabloid newspaper VG.”

“NATO member Norway has sometimes in the past been threatened by leaders of al Qaeda for its involvement in Afghanistan, but political violence is virtually unknown in the country.”

“CNN: Is reporting that a second explosion took place after the first one, this is a hallmark of al-Qaeda attacks, multiple bombs set to kill and maim responders and onlookers from the first attack.”

The jihadi forums are reportedly celebrating the blasts.

Update: According to The Guardian, NRK is reporting that an unknown group called “Helpers of the Global Jihad” have posted a message that this is only the beginning of the reaction to Norwegian periodicals publishing the Muhammed cartoons, according to Andrew Boyle, a journalist in Norway.

The NY Times has more on the terror group:

A terror group, Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami (the Helpers of the Global Jihad), issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack, according to Will McCants, a terrorism analyst at CNA, a research institute that studies terrorism. The message said the attack was a response to Norwegian forces’ presence in Afghanistan and to unspecified insults to the Prophet Muhammad. “We have warned since the Stockholm raid of more operations,” the group said, apparently referred to a bombing in Sweden in December 2010, according to Mr McCants’ translation. “What you see is only the beginning, and there is more to come.” The claim could not be confirmed.

It is confusing, some reports say it was the one person then others say the bombing was not done by the killer in the above photo at the top of this post.

Rush Limbaugh On Rep. LTC Allen West: "he is a brilliant man, and he's a good and decent man......"

This video is Rep. Allen West on FOX : "Not A Chance" I'll Apologize, Wasserman Schultz Is Still A Liar & Not A Lady


And this from Rush Limbaugh:

...."the House does have that understanding that members are not to be called out. She did it, and West replied. You know, West is a tough guy, and he is a brilliant man, and he's a good and decent man, and he has served in the US military. He's gone up against people far tougher than Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz, and so he fired back. This is not the first time she said this stuff about Allen West. She says it all the time in south Florida. It's the first time she said it on the floor of the House. So what did she do? She ran like a little crybaby to all these other left-wing women of the Democrat Party to help her out, and they start returning fire that West is the racist and West is the sexist and so forth. "

Final Touchdown...Space Shuttle Atlantis and Never Forget Obama Pulled The Plug On NASA!



COUNTDOWN from the 'Signals' cd by Rush. On April 12, 1981, Rush was invited to NASA to watch the launch of the first Space Shuttle Columbia. They were so impressed and inspired that they came up with this song and video to pay tribute to NASA astronauts Young and Crippen, and the whole space program.


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

Thanks to all the brave men and women who have dared to go into space push the envelope and to those on the ground who made it possible To those that gave their all RIP and prayers to the family's .


I always enjoyed the double boom when I was physically in Los Angeles and the Shuttle landed at Edwards.

The money we spent on the stimulus could have funded at least 2 mission to Mars.

I am just so very sad of the amount of hope that has been lost since Obama took office, among the thiings he is destroying is the morale of America.

Kennedy gave us a goal, to be the first to the moon. It built our nation, gave us unity, pride and levels of achievement unheard of.

Obama takes it away.And he makes no effort to even recognize this event.

Another reason to get rid of Obama in 2012. The symbolism of the US retreat from space cannot be overestimated. This is a great day for Obama who believes the world will be a better place with the US brought down to the level of the rest of the world.

3200 people will lose their job when Atlantis touches down.

Fox just showed the signs the NASA workers had made. It has me crying, these people made their signs and are holding them up to the camera of the various jobs that have had with NASA and how they have been a part of all of this. One can just see the pride but sadness too with each one of them.

Touchdown! And all is safe. Awesome!

Wheel stop.

It’s over...and I am in tears.

Obama Says Election Assessment Of HIS Leadership

Obama says election assessment of his leadership


Associated Press

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he’ll be re-elected for a second term if voters feel like he’s been on their side, working as hard as he can and getting things done.

“If they don’t,” the president said, “then I’ll lose.”

The blunt political assessment from Obama cast next year’s presidential contest as a referendum on his leadership rather than a choice between him and whoever his GOP opponent will be.

“That’s not to say that the other candidate is irrelevant,” Obama said, “but it does mean that I’m probably going to win or lose depending on their assessment of my stewardship.”

The president made his comments in an interview with KMBC-TV in Kansas City, Mo. He was responding to a question about who in the Republican field could beat him, but Obama declined to speculate, saying he was too occupied to be spending a lot of time worrying about the GOP hopefuls.

The president said that when voters go to the polls, "what they're going to be asking themselves is who's got a better vision for moving the country forward."

"They don't expect everything to be solved overnight," Obama said. "They do expect that their president's going to be thinking about them every single day and going to be focused on how do we win the future."

"And if next November they feel like I've been on their side and I've been working as hard as I can and have been getting some things done to move us in the right direction, I'll win. If they don't, then I'll lose."


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

The guy has an ego bigger than that of Mao, Ho, Stalin, Khruschev, Castro, Hugo Chavez and Achmedgenocide put together.

They are going to have to create a new word in the dictionary for “Malignant Narcissist” and put obama's photo with it.

November 2012 will determine whether America will survive or whether the Marxist-In-Chief will be able to say, “Yes We Did” (destroy capitalism).

House Dems Want Apology From Rep.LTC Allen West ~ Two Words For YOU Democrats....Alan Grayson! And West Spoke the TRUTH!

Allen West email prompts call for apology from Democrats


Several House Democratic women on Wednesday called on Rep. Allen West to apologize to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for his e-mail that called her “vile,” “despicable” and “not a Lady.”

The lawmakers said they were sending a letter to House GOP leadership, asking them to condemn the e-mail from the freshman Florida Republican. The group of five House Democrats said West’s e-mail was indicative of a larger problem – both inside Congress and out – of gender discrimination in the workplace.

“For his own good, they ought to take him into the woodshed and say, ‘if you want to survive in this work environment, you’ve got to keep your word, you’ve got to be cordial and congenial and civil even when you’re disagreeing,” said Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) “It makes for a very hard career otherwise.”

“Sticks and stones will not break Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz’s bones, and neither will Congressman West’s Blackberry,” added Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) who charged that in other workplaces, West would be hit with a sexual harassment claim.

So far, West’s office has stood by the e-mail, sent late Tuesday afternoon to Wasserman Schultz and copied to House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and West’s chief of staff, Jonathan Blyth. West has since sent fundraising letters referencing the e-mail, asking his supporters to donate money to defend himself from Wasserman Schultz – who is also chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has also used West’s e-mail in a fundraising letter.

The Congressional Black Caucus – of which West is the only Republican member – declined to take an official position on the matter. Moore said copies of the e-mail were circulated at the group’s weekly meeting earlier Wednesday afternoon.

Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) declined to comment on West’s comments. West, who attends the meetings infrequently, is supposed to provide lunch for the next meeting.

Wasserman Schultz herself has stayed relatively quiet on the e-mail, dismissing questions earlier Wednesday at a press conference and when asked on MSNBC, indicated that she sympathized with West for the “pressure” he faces for his stance on benefit cuts.

But her fellow Democrats were out in full force in her defense.

“I was especially appalled at the misogynistic suggestion that she was not being a lady,” Speier said. “Allen West knows as much about being a lady as Rupert Murdoch does about privacy.”

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) noted that West’s remarks came on the anniversary of the first women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, N.Y., 73 years ago, saying “it’s ladylike to stand up and speak for what you believe.”

“I’m disappointed and I believe that ladies should never be called unladylike for participating as a woman in a man’s world,” Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) told POLITICO. “That’s what many of us do in this body. We don’t ask for special privileges, we simply ask that if there is a disagreement with our words you can come to the floor and discourse and debate.”

It wasn’t just women who condemned West’s missive on Wednesday. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) told reporters earlier Wednesday said the e-mail was “shocking to the conscience.”

“I thought it was just unfortunate that one member would send another member an e-mail like that,” Cummings said.

Black Caucus 'Furious' Over GOP Rep. West's Email to Dem Party Chief

FOX News

The head of the Congressional Black Caucus told Fox News on Wednesday that members are “furious” about the incendiary email Rep. Allen West sent to the Democratic party chairwoman, saying he’s going to speak with the Florida Republican about the matter.

"It's unfortunate," Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., said. He could not say whether the CBC would seek to discipline its only Republican member, but claimed lawmakers were upset the incident has brought "undue attention" to the caucus.

West fired off an email Tuesday to Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, calling her "vile, despicable and cowardly" for calling into question his stance on Medicare on the House floor.

The CBC was planning to discuss the email at its weekly meeting Wednesday, but votes got in the way and the caucus now plans to discuss the issue at a later date.

In the meantime, Cleaver said, "I'm going to talk to him."

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., another member of the CBC, said he was "shocked" to see the language West had employed.

"We have really got to make sure that we maintain a high level of civility," he said.

Elsewhere, House Democrats' campaign arm quickly seized on the exchange, blasting out a fundraising pitch Wednesday asking donors to help them raise $100,000 toward defeating West next fall.

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Rep. Steve Israel called his email "disgraceful" and "hate-filled," urging supporters to make sure Republicans "don't forget this moment."

West, though, stood by the email.

"I think it's important to stake my ground," West told Fox News. "It was about enough is enough, and it's my right to say that. She is the one elevating this."

In her remarks on the House floor, Wasserman Schultz had said: "The gentleman from Florida, who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries. Unbelievable from a member from south Florida."

She was alluding to a GOP-backed bill to reduce the debt and amend the Constitution to require a balanced federal budget. The House later approved the bill 234-190, but it is unlikely to pass the Democratic Senate.

West, who is in his first term, wasn't shy about his online outburst. He sent his email to numerous lawmakers, as well as Wasserman Schultz and other congressional leaders. The subject line of the email: "Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman Schultz."

The e-mail said: "Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up."

West also wrote that Wasserman Schultz has proven "that you are not a Lady" and "shall not be afforded due respect from me!" He said he was alerting House leaders to her "heinous characterless behavior."

A spokesman for Wasserman Schultz, Jonathan Beeton, said in an email of his own: "I don't think that Congressman West is upset at the congresswoman, but rather with the fact that she highlighted that he and other Republicans are once again trying to balance the budget on the backs of seniors, children and the middle class. ... The truth hurts."

West's office did not back off the criticism after the email was widely distributed. A spokeswoman said Wasserman Schultz had taken "another cowardly cheap shot at Congressman West."

West told Fox News that Wasserman Schultz's comments were part of a "pattern" of "hate," and he felt that she "disrespected" him in her House floor speech.

"You don't need to call me out on your time to speak on the floor," West said. "Focus on what is your plan for the debt ceiling."

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., whom West copied on his email, defended the tea party-backed freshman.

“Tensions are building here sure," McCarthy told Fox News. "Allen is going to defend himself. There’s always a way to display that differently.”


Wild Thing's comment......

Schultz IS vile and despicable - funny that it offends people when someone speaks the truth.

He took the fight to them and they are not used to it. When you are taking flack, it’s because you are directly over the target.

This complaining about what he said is the height of double standard. Where were the dems when Grayson literally spewed his lies about Republicans and Conservatives???

Its time to start slapping them back, repeatedly.

Rep. Allen West was saying the things to the Rats, up front and personal, that we would love to say! He is the shining star amongst dull embers. Wasserman-Schultz has been harassing and smearing West for quite some time. He finally got fed up. She’s not lady. She’s a lying skunk. Remember this that SHE said: “Republicans Want To ‘Literally Drag Us All The Way Back To Jim Crow Laws.”

Allen West's office : 202-225-3026

His email site.....

I told him that until Wasserman-Schultz can provide proof that she has done as much for this country as he has, she should just SHUT UP!

I don't trust either of these jerks in their response, I would even bet they do this to get more blacks to vote for obama as a I'll show you kind of thing.

CNN Host Kyra Phillips and Black Farmers Union’s John Boyd Use Race Card and Lies To Attack Michele Bachmann

CNN’s Kyra Phillips and Black Farmers Union’s John Boyd called Michelle Bachmann a racist today because she suspects that there might be fraud in the Pigford settlement payouts.

For the record… More than 92,000 blacks signed up for reparations from the Obama USDA after the Pigford case was extended this past year. That’s five times the number of blacks who were actually farming during the time period in question and would possibly qualify for the reparations.

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

More of the if anyone disagree's with Obama is a racist. When will be on the left get sick of this and see through it...... Intentional stupidity to aay the least.

Rep. Wasserman Schultz 'vile...despicable...not a Lady'

After Rep. Allen West left the House floor yesterday , lying leftist hack Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz attacked him and lied about the Republican plan. A disgruntled Allen West sent out this response to the vile DNC chair.


Florida GOP Congressman Allen West yesterday dispatched an email to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, calling her "vile, unprofessional ,and despicable," "a coward," "characterless," and "not a Lady."

Wasserman-Schultz, in whose neighboring South Florida district West lives, provoked his tirade with remarks after he left the House floor today, in which she responded -- without naming him -- to the Tea Party freshman's support for "Cut, Cap, and Balance" legislation to raise the debt ceiling.

"The gentleman from Florida. who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries, unbelievable from a Member from South Florida," Wasserman-Schultz said, saying the legislation "slashes Medicaid and critical investments essential to winning the future in favor of protecting tax breaks for Big Oil, millionaires, and companies who ship American jobs overseas."

Allen West's email:

From: Z112 West, Allen
Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)


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

Gosh, he is so awesome. Bewteen Allen West and Marco Rubio and some others America just might have a chance to recover from Obama and the left's destruction.

West just drew the line in the sand....good for him!..And he sent this to the Democrates..Pelosi and the whole bunch! Wonderful to see one of ours take the lead and hopefully the softer Republicans will take the hint.

Thanks, Congressman speak for REAL Americans.

Here is something else he said the other day:

his website

In his latest weekly update to constituents, U.S. Rep. Allen West, calls the debate over the federal government’s debt limit “the ultimate ideological clash in America…between those who believe in principled fiscal policies and those desiring the socialist bureaucratic nanny-state.”

He rips President Obama‘s handling of fiscal affairs and the economy and offers this critique of Obama’s supporters:
“I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.”

House Approves 'Cut, Cap and Balance' Plan 234-190

Paul Ryan twas excellent as he discussed the “Cut, Cap & Balance the Budget” plan.

House Approves 'Cut, Cap and Balance' Plan

FOX News

The U.S. House of Representatives approved an bill that would increase the U.S. Debt Limit by $2.4 Trillion, accompanied by spending cuts, a cap on future expenditures and a Balanced Budget Amendment requirement. The bill passed the Republican-controlled House 234-190:

The House of Representatives has approved the GOP’s ‘Cut, Cap and Balance’ plan with a vote of 234 to 190.

The bill imposes caps on federal spending as a percentage of GDP. It also allows for an increase in the debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion in exchange for both the Senate and House approving a balanced budget amendment.

House Speaker John Boehner played a muted role in public during the day, but later applauded the passage of the plan.

“House Republicans are the only ones to put forward and pass a real plan that will create a better environment for private-sector job growth by stopping Washington from spending money it doesn’t have and preventing tax hikes on families and small businesses," he said in a statement. "The White House hasn’t said what it will cut."

But nine Republicans voted no on the plan, including Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. and Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas. Five Democrats sided with Republicans.

The plan is under a veto threat by Obama amid predictions that it won't make it through the Senate.

Republicans fiercely defend the cut, cap and balance proposal, noting that they've done more than Obama in putting a plan on the table.


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

GOP voting NO: Bachmann, Broun (GA), Canseco, DesJarlais, Griffith (VA), Jones, Mack, (Ron) Paul, Rohrabacher.
DEM voting YES: Boren, Cooper, Matheson, McIntyre, Shuler.

Casino Mogul Wynn Slams Obama on Jobs, Economy

Wynn, the CEO of Wynn Resorts (WYNN), called the administration the “greatest wet blanket to business and progress and job creation in my lifetime.”

In particular, Wynn criticized Obama for a “lack of leadership” and Washington for excessive regulation and escalating health-care costs.

Fox Business

Las Vegas heavyweight Steve Wynn, a self-described Democratic businessman, unloaded on the White House this week, blaming President Barack Obama’s political philosophy for the nation’s stagnant job growth and poor business climate.

Wynn, the CEO of Wynn Resorts (WYNN), called the administration the “greatest wet blanket to business and progress and job creation in my lifetime.”

The comments underscore the tense relationship between corporate America and the White House, and come as Washington is paralyzed by the tense negotiations to raise the nation’s debt limit.

“I believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of it. But I’m afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the United States,” said Wynn, who was responding to a question during his company’s earnings conference call about expanding in Vegas.

Wynn, 69, is worth an estimated $2.3 billion as of this year, up from $1.5 billion previously, according to Forbes. In 2006 he was named as one of the world’s 100 most influential people by Time. Wynn’s casinos include the Wynn Las Vegas, Wynn Macau and Encore.

In particular, Wynn criticized Obama for a “lack of leadership” and Washington for excessive regulation and escalating health-care costs.

“I’m telling you that the business community in this company is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the President of the United States,” Wynn said. “And until he’s gone, everybody’s going to be sitting on their thumbs.”

The blunt comments were surprising considering Wynn has been a frequent supporter of Democrats in the past, including donating to Sen. John Kerry’s run for the White House in 2004 and supporting a number of other key Democrats like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

“Everybody's afraid of the government, and there's no need to soft peddling it, it's the truth. It is the truth,” said Wynn. “And that's true of Democratic businessman and Republican businessman, and I am a Democratic businessman and I support Harry Reid. I support Democrats and Republicans.”


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

You can really tell he is sorry he voted for this communist obama. For being such a truly smart business man like Wynn is, how odd that he would have voted for obama when he would give speech after speech about his agenda. WE all listend, I guess Wynn did not. But he is making up for it IMO, and these rants help a lot to let other democrats know they need to speak out too and to the donors as well.

Wynn is right - Obama is KILLING the private sector and he is doing it all on purpose.

This rant of Wynn's and this is not the first rant he has done about obama that I have posted. His rants do show Obama's supporters are starting to leave. Wynn supported him, won't again. I choose to celebrate this victory. Not a good time to run down one of America's biggest job creators. He has credibility.

Ground Zero Mosque Given Green Light By NY Judge

Judge Paul Fineman

'Ground Zero Mosque' Clears Legal Hurdle to Build


The backers of the controversial "Ground Zero Mosque" have won a court fight clearing the way for them to build the mosque and community center complex two blocks from the site of the 9/11 terror attack.

In a decision on Friday that was made public today, New York State Supreme Justice Paul Feinman dismissed a lawsuit by former firefighter Timothy Brown who argued that New York City was wrong to allow the destruction of a 150-year-old building to make way for the Islamic center.

The ex-firefighter who was among those who responded to the terror attack on the World Trade Center said the old building had been struck by debris during the collapse of the twin towers and was a "living representative of the heroic structures that commemorate the events of that day."

In a 15-page decision Feinman wrote, "Mr. Brown's claim that his ability to commemorate will be injured, is not yet recognized under the law as a concrete injury that can establish standing. Such an injury, although palpable to Brown, is immeasurable by a court."

The American Center for Law and Justice, a conservative legal group which filed the lawsuit on Brown's behalf, said they plan to appeal the ruling.

Ground Zero Mosque Clears Legal Hurdle to Build

"This decision fails to give appropriate consideration to first responders and others who risked their lives and lost loved ones on Sept. 11," ACLJ attorney Brett Joshpe said in a statement.

The ACLJ "remain confident that this mosque will never rise above Ground Zero."

Organizers of the project, officially called Park 51, declined to comment.

Brown and the ACLJ were appealing a ruling last summer by the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission which decided to allow a 150-year-old Park Place building to be razed to make way for the center.

Park 51 has been a source of national controversy since its unveiling last May. Opponents as well as supporters demonstrated at Ground Zero in reaction to the commission's decision to allow the mosque last August. President Obama was drawn into the controversy when he initially endorsed the mosque.

"As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country," Obama said at a White House ceremony last summer that marked the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. "That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan in accordance with local laws and ordinances."

But in a visit to the Gulf Coast, Obama later dialed back saying that he supported the Muslims community's right to build the mosque, but was not sure it was a good idea to build so close to Ground Zero.


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

How about a fire engine blockade of the site? Of course this is after the area is saturated with bacon grease!

America's suicide by judicial review...............this country is going to hell in a hand cart.

Muslims Hold Protest Against Security Screenings at US Border: "We're asking for equal treatment"

Muslim border protest: 'We're asking for equal treatment'


Recalling the civil rights movement, one man says he's asking for equality - and is tired of being profiled because of his Muslim beliefs.

Jeff Siddiqui of Lynnwood took his message Sunday to the U.S.-Canadian border, where he and a handful of protesters delivered their message, yards away from the Peace Arch.

Siddiqui, who is with the group American Muslims of Puget Sound, organized what he calls a peaceful demonstration to send a message to passers-by.

"We don't want a country where - to use Martin Luther King's words - where we are judged by the color of our skin or our faith," Siddiqui says.

He tells KOMO News he felt like he was targeted by a border official about a year ago when he tried to leave Canada and go through the checkpoint. Siddiqui describes what happened:

"After haranguing me for a while, and I told him to mind his manners, he said, 'Well, do you have anything in your van you don't want us to find?' And I said, 'What do mean?' He said 'Oh, like terrorists, guns, grenades under the seat.'"

Somewhere between 25 and 80 demonstrators were supposed to show up for Sunday's border protest - including some fellow Muslims. But only about six actually showed up.

Siddiqui says he knows why they didn't come.

"Muslims are terrified," he says. "They don't want to be targeted. They don't want to be identified, they don't want to be listed as trouble makers for future treatment, and they're just terrified even though they're citizens."

Hundreds of people saw the signs posted by Siddiqui and the others, which proclaimed such slogans as "Muslims Are Americans" and "U.S. Muslims: Doctors, Lawyers, Soldiers, Cabbies, Scientists, Politicians."

"I am Muslim myself, and we are not scary people," says a woman, Shamim, who was driving through the border and saw the demonstration. "We are just human beings like others."

Another motorist at the crossing, Masoud Amin, said: "If their right has been violated, let them have their rights. But I think there are Muslim groups that have to be stopped."

Siddiqui says Sunday's action is aimed at bringing awareness - whether it's criticism or compliments, he says it doesn't matter.

"We're asking to be treated on an equal footing, as the rest of America," he says. "I don't think that's too much."


Wild Thing's comment......

Siddiqui, instead of whining like a victim, understand the reason behind it.

Deadly Muslim terror attacks are a daily occurrence throughout the world, including some high-profile, high casualty Muslim terror attacks right here in the States.

Michelle Obama: 'I can't stop eating French fries. But eat your vegetables.'

The Washington Examiner

During her visit to South Africa, First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by the University of Cape Town for an event with young people.

She was asked about her favorite food:

..."if I picked one favorite, favorite food, it's French fries." The audience began to laugh. "Okay? It's French fries," Obama continued. "I can't stop eating them." As the students laughed more, the First Lady quickly returned to her role as advocate of health eating. "But eat your vegetables," she said, to still more laughs. "And exercise."


Wild Thing's comment......

LMAO hilarious! A french fry dress and Obama's matching tie it seems.

I saw this over at Iowntheworld, not sure if it has been photo shopped but if we go by how Michelle dresses most of the time it looks like something she would wear. hahahaha

Fantastic! GOP Sen. Marco Rubio Is Outstanding on Sunday's CBS News’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer ~ A MUST SEE VIDEO!!

“OK, so where’s the plan? Where’s the president’s plan? I’ve never seen a piece of paper with the president’s name on it that’s his plan to solve this crisis. I’ve seen press conferences. I’ve seen lectures that he’s given to the Congress. I’ve seen these press avails where the camera comes in and takes a bunch of pictures. I haven’t seen a plan. Where is the president’s plan?“

Marco was just too much for Obama-apologist Bob Schieffer.

Wow this is outstanding GOP Sen. Marco Rubio getting into a testy back and forth with CBS News’s “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer today. Rubio was taking it to Barack Obama for his failure to lead on the Debt Ceiling issue, and for his failure to turn the U.S. Economy around. Schieffer then began defending the Obama Administration, sounding much more like a Democrat shill than the anchor of a major Sunday Interview Program. Schieffer blamed the current economy “on the previous administration,” to which Rubio responded, “When does it start getting better, Bob?” Rubio made it clear Obama has offered no plan of his own, and has seemed to want this “crisis” to unfold. Schieffer repeatedly sought to defend Obama, and was clearly frustrated by Rubio.

Rubio said he would not support Sen. Mitch McConnell’s plan to give President Obama authority to raise the Debt Limit. He said the problem is not “the debt limit” – it’s the debt.”

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

Marco Rubio is soooo good. Rubio absolutely blew him away.

Clear,Concise,Confident and factual. What beautiful presentation.

Romney Adviser Backs Obama Health Exchanges

Romney Adviser Backs Obama Health Exchanges.

The Wall Street Journal


Former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt, a top supporter and adviser of Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney, strenuously backed the core piece of President Barack Obama’s health-care law and urged the states to move forward together in adopting health insurance exchanges.

Speaking to a bipartisan group of governors at the National Governors Association, the former Republican governor who served as secretary of health and human services in the Bush administration, called the exchanges where individuals and small businesses can purchase health plans “a very practical solution to a problem that needs to be solved.” He warned governors who are reluctant to move forward with their state-level exchanges that their intransigence will only empower federal regulators.

And he said the health care law that passed is a compromise that gives the states the flexibility they need.

“This is a profoundly important time for the states,” said Mr. Leavitt. “States need to lead.”

The comments came at a time when every major Republican presidential candidate has pledged to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the president’s health care law. For former Massachusetts Gov. Romney, the issue is extra sensitive: the health care plan he secured for Massachusetts included an exchange almost identical to the federal law. He has tried to tightrope through the issue, blasting the federal law as he defends his own.

The federal law gives the states until January 2014 to set up their own exchanges, with federal oversight. If they fail to do so, their citizens will get access to a federal exchange.

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

Romney will lose if he gets the nomination. He doesn’t even have “the lesser of two evils” going for him by enough to matter. He won’t dismantle Obama’s Big Government, and he would make it harder for us to dismantle the excesses of these terrible years.

Romney would be a disaster - global warming, no ObamaCare repeal, etc.

House Turns Off Incandescent “ban” By Voice Vote ~ God Bless Them! Stay Strong Against The Environmentalists Nazi's!


House democrats on Tuesday blocked Republican efforts to repeal their job-killing light bulb ban. The democrats’ plan was to ban 100 watt incandescent bulbs in the US markets in January 2012, with bans on lower wattage bulbs to follow.

The democrats didn’t care that their plan would give hundreds of US jobs to China.

Republicans came back on Friday morning and blocked federal light bulb efficiency standards without even a roll call vote.

An amendment from Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) defunding the Energy Department’s standards for traditional incandescent light bulbs to be 30 percent more energy efficient starting next year was approved by voice vote.

The move by Republicans wasn’t just wise, it was popular. 67% of American voters oppose the bulb ban and support Republicans on this issue.


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

I am thrilled at what our side did. THRILLED!!

The day the light bulb nazis decided it was THEIR right to tell us how to light our homes, rather than ours was the day this country went from being in trouble to being in danger.

If our side can stay strong on this and somehow get the Senate to pass it iand then keep obama from doing his veto crap on it, maybe they can finish putting it through the rest of the way when we get a Conservative in power and more elected in the Houses.

Our government needs to at least give we the people the freedom to have a choice in what we want to use, not this dictatorship coming from the enviro's. GRRRRRR!!! Only the government would force people to purchase light bulbs with poisonous material in them.

Hanoi Jane Fonda Criticizes and Spews Hate for QVC and the Far Right After Canceled TV Appearance ~ Thank You QVC, Jane's Treason will always be TREASON!



Jane Fonda Criticizes QVC, the Far Right After Canceled TV Appearance

The Hollywood Reporter

"I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure by some well-funded and organized political extremist groups," the actress wrote on her website Saturday.

Actress Jane Fonda took to her website on Saturday criticizing the cable shopping network QVC after it canceled her appearance to promote her new book on aging, Prime Time: Love, Health, Sex, Fitness, Friendship, Spirit.

The Oscar-winning actress was set to appear on the network on Saturday, but the network felt pressure from angry callers who threatened to boycott if Fonda appeared.

"I have never shied away from talking about this as I have nothing to hide," Fonda continued. "I could have pointed out that threats of boycotts are nothing new for me and have never prevented me from having bestselling books and exercise DVDs, films and a Broadway play."

She added: "Most people don't buy into the far right lies. May people have reached out to express how excited they were about my going onto QVC and hearing about my book."

Fonda, who has criticized the U.S.' occupation of Iraq, addressed her critics. "Bottom line, this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT!," Fonda wrote. "I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us."

"I do not understand what the far right stands to gain by continuing with these myths," she explains further. "In this case, they denied a lot of people the chance to hear about a book that can help make life better and more fulfilling. I am deeply grateful for all of the support I have been getting since this happened, including from my Vietnam Veterans friends."

Fonda's book Prime Time, published by Random House, is in stores Aug. 9. Fonda has previously released My Life So Far, an autobiography that followed her life in three acts.

WOW Whopper Of A Lie As Obama Claims “80% of Americans” Support Tax Increases in a Debt Limit Deal

Obama Claims “80% of Americans” Support Tax Increases in a Debt Limit Deal

Obama arguing yesterday at his Press Conference that “the American People are sold” on raising taxes as part of a Debt Limit deal. Of course, Obama will not use the word “taxes.” It’s always, “a balanced approach,” or “revenues.” What he wants to do is raise taxes on the very people who start and expand businesses, creating jobs.

Obama claims that “80%” of Americans want higher taxes! A huge lie of course.

From The Hill

Obama on Friday kept up the pressure on Republicans to agree to revenue increases in a deal to raise the debt ceiling, claiming 80 percent of the public supports Democrats' demand for tax increases.

"The American people are sold," Obama said. "The problem is members of Congress are dug in ideologically."

Throughout the press conference, Obama blasted Republicans for ignoring what he said is the will of the American people by rejecting tax increases that would balance out spending cuts in a debt package.

"This is not an issue of salesmanship to the American people," Obama said. "I hope [Republicans are] not just listening to lobbyists and special interests ... I hope they're listening to the American people as well," Obama said, citing "poll after poll" showing Republican voters, as well as Democrats, believe in taking "a balanced approach" — including both increased revenues and spending cuts in a plan to cut the deficit.

Obama repeated his warning that the country is "running out of time" to avert a financial “Armageddon.”

"We should not even be this close on a deadline," Obama said. "This is something we should have accomplished earlier."

“We asked the president to lead, we asked him to put forward a plan, not a speech — a real plan — and he hasn’t. We will,” Speaker John Boehner said (R-Ohio) before Obama’s press conference.

Obama also shot down GOP calls for a balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution, saying "we don't need a constitutional amendment to do our jobs."

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

"Obama said 80 percent of Americans are on his side in the debate over what to include in the debt package."

Then according to his massive lie, count me in the 20%.

He better stop listening to those the voices in his head.

Sheila Jackson Lee: GOP Complicating Debt Debate Because Obama is Black ~ She Needs Help, This Woman Is Sick!

Sheila Jackson Lee: GOP Complicating Debt Debate Because Obama is Black

The Hill

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Friday strongly suggested that members of Congress are making it difficult for President Obama to raise the debt ceiling because of his race.

"I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness [toward] this president,” said Jackson Lee, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. “Why is he different? And in my community, that is the question that we raise. In the minority community that is question that is being raised. Why is this president being treated so disrespectfully? Why has the debt limit been raised 60 times? Why did the leader of the Senate continually talk about his job is to bring the president down to make sure he is unelected?”

Earlier in her speech, Jackson Lee said Obama has been targeted unlike any other president.

"I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president — only this one, only this one — has received the kind of attacks and disagreement and inability to work, only this one," said Jackson Lee from the House floor.

"Read between the lines," she continued. "What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills, something required by both statute and the 14th amendment?"

Jackson Lee concluded by saying she hoped someone would prove her wrong, however, she doesn’t believe she is.

“I hope someone will say that what it appears to be is not in fact accurate,” said Lee. “But historically it seems to be nothing more.”

The anti-Reagan Will Speak..AGAIN..Obama Press Conference at 11 a.m This Morning

The Corner

White House debt talks ended without a deal Thursday, as negotiators resolved not to meet again on Friday. Instead, President Obama will hold a press conference at 11 a.m., presumably to “take it to the American people” as he warned House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) he would do if Cantor “called his bluff.”

Meanwhile, House Republicans and Democrats will hold conference meetings tomorrow morning to assess the state of the negotiations. Upon returning to the Capitol on Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) said the meeting went well and that congressional leaders will continue to “discuss the way forward” and “see what happens.”

‘Transition’ Flying Cars Approved as ‘Street Legal’

‘Transition’ Flying Cars Approved as ‘Street Legal’

the Transition(R) "Flying Car" has now been unveiled to the world.

The vehicle costs roughly $250,000 and requires a $10,000 deposit to order one. But while that may seem pricey, owners who buy one might actually end up saving some money: developers say the vehicle gets about 30-35 miles per gallon on the road.


Terrafugia has been developing the futuristic vehicle since 2008. Below, you can catch a glimpse of the vehicle in action courtesy of the company: confirms the Transition is the first of its kind, and gives some of the specs:

The Transition requires a 520 metres strip to take off over a 15m tall obstacle and is capable of cruising at around 200km/h. The unique craft also has a range of around 700km before it needs to land and refuel. Interestingly, the Transition apparently has an average fuel consumption of 7.8L/100km on the road.

The automobile can convert in about 30 seconds with a touch of a button, and is operated by both a steering wheel and a joystick:

It measures 19ft long and just 5ft 6ins wide when the wings are folded up, but they have a full span of 27ft.

It has a top speed of 65mph on the road, but that soars to 115mph in the air.

Drivers can convert it from a two-seater road car to a plane in less than 30 seconds with the touch of a button.

It doesn’t have a gearstick, but on the road can be controlled with brake and accelerator pedals and a steering wheel like an ordinary car. In the air it is operated with a joystick near the steering wheel.

God bless America! I love that the American attitude is not dead. Keep inventing, keep dreaming and creating.

Brett Baier has been one of my favorites for a long time. He is an even keel kind of personality, and someone that is first class. He has a great show at FOX and for the WH to say anything negative about Obama is unforgivable. I am so glad Charles spoke up like he did about this.

Barack Obama Demanded His Tax Hikes and Then Walked Out Abruptly On Republicans During Debt Talks

According to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, President Obama has walked out on Republicans in the debt talks which caused the meeting to end “abruptly.”

Obama: 'This May Bring My Presidency Down, but I Will Not Yield' on No Short-Term Extensions

ABC News

by Jack Tapper

“It cannot all be on us,” the president said, arguing that Republicans need to give on the revenue side of things as Democrats are willing to do so on spending cuts.

“Don’t call my bluff,” the president said. “I am not afraid to veto and I will take it to the American people.”

If Moody’s, the credit rating agency that announced a review of U.S. credit, downgrades the United States, President Obama said, “it will be a tax increase on every American.”

There needs to be a long-term debt extension, the president argued.

“This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this,” he said.

Then he stood up.

When Cantor said the two sides were too far apart to get a deal that could pass the House by the Treasury Department’s Aug. 2 deadline — and that he would consider moving a short-term debt-limit increase alongside smaller spending cuts — Obama began to lecture him.

“Eric, don’t call my bluff,” the president said, warning Cantor that he would take his case “to the American people.” He told Cantor that no other president — not Ronald Reagan, the president said — would put up with the treatment he was getting from the House majority leader.

“Enough is enough,” the president insisted. “We have to be willing to compromise. It shouldn’t be about positioning and politics, and I’ll see you all tomorrow.”

Then he left the room.

The group is to recovene Thursday at 4:15 p.m. at the White House and continue debate on cuts in health care spending and revenues that the president still considers necessary if the negotiations are to reach the Republicans’ demand for $2.4 trillion in savings to match the increase in governement borrowing power.

President Obama also told the leaders that by Friday they need to decide where they are heading in the talks -- whether a deal is possible or whether they must turn their attention to avoiding a default.


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

He threw a temper tantrum..doesn’t like what he hears so he storms out.

He’s so arrogant that he (and a lot of other Libs) just cannot comprehend the fact that other people can disagree with them. Their attitude is that their way is the only way—we are too dumb to know what’s the “right” thing to think—and much of the time for various reasons they can bully their way thru. He just cannot handle it when others have their own thoughts and beliefs and dare to voice them and stand up for them.

How Bad Is Mitch McConnell's Plan To Raise Debt Ceiling?? Well Democrat Harry Reid and RINO John McCain Praise It! ~ So These Enemies Of America Think It is Great!

Harry Reid commends Mitch McConnell’s debt plan


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Wednesday praised Republican Leader Mitch McConnell for putting forth a plan to raise the debt ceiling, calling it a “serious proposal” that he’s continuing to study.

“He spent a great deal of time working on this. I commend him for his thoughtful and unique proposal, something that we have to look at very closely,” Reid, a Nevada Democrat, said on the Senate floor. “I’m heartened by what I read. This is a serious proposal, and I commend the Republican leader for coming forward with it.”


McCain praises McConnell backup debt plan

The Hill

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) praised a backup plan by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to raise the debt ceiling.

“I strongly support Senator McConnell’s efforts to avoid a default on our nation’s debt, and the last-case emergency proposal he outlined yesterday to ensure that Republicans aren’t unduly blamed for failure to raise the debt ceiling,” McCain said in a statement on Wednesday.


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

When John McCain and Harry Reid are in your corner it speaks volumes how bad the idea has got to be.

Allen West Speaks On Obama Using Intimidation and Scare Tactics

Allen West on Obama: Real leaders don’t use intimidation and scare tactics

Allen West says that Obama does not have the moral high ground on these debt limit negotiations because every one of his economic policies have failed and that it’s only because he has run up record deficits that we are now at this critical point. He says that Obama needs to understand that it’s his job to prioritize spending so that Social Security checks will go out and we don’t default.

Big Tax and Spender Obama Gives More Of His Threats On Tuesday Said: he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3

Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.

“I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by CBS News.

Obama and democrats want to raise taxes to pay off his historic debt.


Exclusive: Boehner on Obama's Debt 'Threats'


Exclusive: Boehner on Special Report


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

If the checks don’t go out it will be because Obama has deliberately intervened to stop a process that continues even in the face of a government shutdown.

He’d go nuclear and hurt millions of elderly and disable people rather than reduce government spending.

This is pure rhetoric to scare the elderly.The POTUS and democrats did the same-thing with Ryan’s medicare bill. They are looking to ramp up the angst in the electorate. Also, I believe that this POS WOULD HURT THE ELDERLY, that’s what kind of immoral individual is in this White House.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa Investigates White House Political Activities

Darrell Issa questions White House's 2012 actions


House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa is probing what he sees as signs of an unseemly overlap between President Barack Obama’s official and political activities.

In what could be considered the committee’s sharpest probe to date of the White House, Issa sent a letter to Obama’s top lawyer Monday evening asking for a slew of documents relating to what the California Republican termed as “an array of potentially illegal fundraising behavior.”

Issa singled out a White House meeting in March between Obama, Democratic National Committee officials and members of the business community — who were all Obama donors. The meeting was organized by the DNC.

He’s also calling into question the Obama administration’s decision to provide access to administration officials – possibly including the White House chef – to large donors.

And Issa is taking issue with a campaign video that he says appears to have been shot in the White House, advertising a raffle to have dinner with Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden in return for contributions.

It’s just the latest front in the widening battle between Republicans and Obama as the president runs for reelection. The new House GOP majority is already trying to dismantle Obama’s health care law, hauling in administration officials to testify in oversight hearings. They’re probing his overhaul of the financial regulatory structure and trying to force his aides to testify on Capitol Hill. But Issa, who has subpoena power, is upping the ante by asking that the White House cough up internal documents relating to how the president is running his reelection effort, and whether the White House is being used.

“We have an obligation to inquire into the activities of the now closed White House political office because these activities – some of them are continuing but they’re continuing less formally,” Issa said in a brief interview with POLITICO Monday evening. “It’s an ordinary oversight letter. In other words, we’re not saying, ‘You did terrible things.’ We’re saying, ‘We have indication of this, please explain,’ and that’s what the letter intends to do.”

“Notwithstanding the stated official purpose of this event, this meeting was not included on President Obama’s public schedule, calling into question its official nature,” Issa writes. “Individuals in attendance have essentially affirmed that the underlying – if not overtly stated – purpose of the event was to solidify financial support for the upcoming campaign.”

Issa’s letter also says that the administration appears to be trying to provide “access…in exchange for campaign contributions” by auctioning off a dinner with Obama and Biden and allowing senior administration officials to interact with donors.


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


Issa not sitting around Good job, Darrell ! Issa has been hard at work for quite a while.

They must hate him over at the WH, he’s like a dog with a bone, beginning to really like this guy if he keeps this up.

Obama Went Around Congress To Get Muslim Who Opened Fire At Army Recruiting Station In Little Rock, Ark.Tried For Murder Not Terrorism.

TERRORIST - Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, 23, is escorted from the Little Rock police headquarters Monday, June 1, 2009 in Little Rock, Ark.

EDITORIAL: Arkansas jihad--Obama ignores the homegrown terror threat

The Washington Times

Obama ignores the homegrown terror threat

An admitted jihadist who killed an American soldier on U.S. soil will be tried next week in Arkansas on a state charge of capital murder - not terrorism. This is odd, considering that the Obama administration recently went out of its way to bring a Somali-born jihadist into U.S. federal court to face terrorism charges for what he may have done overseas. Perhaps the White House thinks that if it turns a blind eye toward domestic Islamic terrorism, it won’t really exist.

Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad is a textbook case of homegrown terrorism. He was born Carlos Bledsoe in Memphis, Tenn., and converted to Islam at age 20. He was active in radical circles, traveled to the Middle East and married a Yemeni woman. In 2008, he was arrested in Yemen for a visa violation and was found to have counterfeit Somali identification documents. He was held in jail and interviewed by FBI agents but was allowed to return to the United States in 2009. He was interviewed once by the bureau upon his return but reportedly was not placed under surveillance.

On June 1, 2009, Mr. Muhammad allegedly opened fire on an Army recruiting station in Little Rock, Ark., killing Pvt. William Long and wounding Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula, who were outside taking a break. Mr. Muhammad was picked up by police later that day; in his vehicle they found an SKS assault rifle, a scope, a laser sight, a silencer, two pistols and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. He said he was angry at the U.S. treatment of Muslims and involvement in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He wanted to kill as many service members as he could.

The Little Rock shooting did not get the attention given to higher-profile jihadist incidents such as the Fort Hood massacre in November 2009 or the botched Christmas Day 2009 underwear bombing attempt. In all three cases, the bureaucracy ignored clear warning signs of potential terrorist activity. In all three cases, there was a known link to Yemen and American-born al Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki. Like Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, Mr. Muhammad is a homegrown jihadist.

The Justice Department’s lack of interest in the Arkansas shooting case is consistent with the administration’s attempts to delink radical Islam from terrorism. This also was the case with the Fort Hood shooting, where the administration doggedly ignored all aspects of Maj. Hasan’s jihadist motives for the attack and initially refused to classify it as terrorism. This was a neat trick considering Maj. Hasan yelled the jihadist war cry “Allahu akbar!” before opening fire.

It’s not as though the administration is afraid of bringing terrorists to federal courts. Mr.Obama ordered the Justice Department to do an end run around Congress to charge accused Somali terrorist Ahmed Abdulkadir Warsame with federal crimes and grant him full due-process rights even though he is not an American citizen and had not conducted an attack inside the United States.

Mr. Obama seems desperate to have foreign jihadists face federal judges and equally driven to deny that jihadism has sprouted on American soil. Perhaps Mr. Obama believes that the president on whose watch Osama bin Laden was killed cannot be called soft on terrorism, but the case of Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad may prove otherwise.

House DEMOCRATS Block Repeal Of Light Bulb Ban So Now American Jobs Go To China And No More Freedom Of Choice ~ Thank Your Awful Democrats!

The Politico

House democrats blocked the repeal of the light bulb ban. A majority of Americans oppose the government’s unpopular and unnecessary ban on incandescent bulbs and infringement on choice. On January 1 2012, 100 watt incandescent bulbs will become illegal, with lower wattages to follow.

House lawmakers Tuesday stymied an initial effort by Republicans to put an end to infamous light bulb efficiency standards.

The bill from Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) to repeal part of a 2007 energy law requiring traditional incandescent light bulbs to be 30 percent more energy efficient beginning in 2012 failed to get the necessary two-thirds support needed for approval under expedited rules. A majority of members — 233 — supported the repeal, including five Democrats. Ten Republicans joined 183 Democrats opposing the measure.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi personally whipped Democratic Caucus members to vote against the bill, a Democratic aide told POLITICO.

“I was concerned that Ms. Pelosi might make it a litmus test issue in her caucus, and she did,” Barton said after the vote. “We only got 5 Democrat votes. Everybody in the Blue Dog caucus and the Black caucus that voted no, voted against their constituents.

“I thought I had 25 at a minimum. I thought, if it were truly a free vote, I thought we’d pass it on suspension,” he added.

Barton said his plan is to move the measure under a regular rule requiring only majority support or as a spending bill amendment.

“We can put it on an appropriations bill. We can back it under a rule. I can try and go to some of the Democrats who didn’t vote for it and figure out a way to get them to consider voting for it in a little bit of a different format,” he said.

Of course, with their vote today the democrats gave good paying American jobs to China. The lightbulb ban forced several US manufacturing plants to close their doors. Meanwhile, the labor-intensive CFL production is thriving – in China.

Obama: "Pull off the band aid. Eat our peas." ~ Whew What Arrogance!

Obama: Time to "eat our peas" and pass debt deal


Obama is still seeking the largest deficit reduction deal possible as part of a package deal to raise the debt ceiling, he said in a press conference today.

"I continue to push congressional leaders for the largest possible deal," he said from the White House. "It is possible for us to construct a package that would be balanced, would share sacrifice [and] would involve both parties taking on their sacred cows."

. Obama would not even entertain the notion of failing to get a deal done before the end of the month.

"We are going to get this done by August 2," he said.

The president and his economic team have repeatedly warned of catastrophic consequences for the U.S. and global economy if Congress does not increase the debt ceiling -- the amount of money that the U.S. government is technically allowed to borrow -- by August 2. Republicans have insisted on creating a deficit and debt reduction plan as a condition of voting to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling.

Obama says will not sign short-term debt deal
Obama: "irresponsible" to hold up debt talks
Boehner says Dems not willing to make debt deal

Obama has been seeking a deal that includes $4 trillion in budget savings over a decade, but House Speaker John Boehner said on Saturday that a mid-size package of reforms -- closer to $2 trillion in savings, with no tax increases -- is the only politically viable solution.

. Obama said today that he appreciated Boehner's efforts to try to reach a large deal with him, but that the rest of the GOP must now step up to the plate.

"I've been hearing from my Republican friends for some time it is a moral imperative to tackle our debt and deficits in a serious way," Mr. Obama said. "What I've said to them is, let's go."

Obama said today he would not accept a smaller, short-term deal. "We might as well do it now," he said. "Pull off the band aid. Eat our peas."

And this:

And this is not something that I am making up. This is not something that Tim Geithner is making up. We're not out here trying to use this as a means of doing all these really tough political things. I'd rather be talking about stuff that everybody welcomes -- like new programs or the NFL season getting resolved. Unfortunately, this is what's on our plate. It's before us right now. And we've got to deal with it.


Obama On 76% Americans Not Wanting Debt Limit Raised: "Public Is Not Paying Close Attention"

Barack Obama had a message for the 76% who oppose an increase in the debt ceiling: pay attention. In response to a question from CBS’ Chip Reid, Obama said that those Americans aren’t paying attention, and insinuated that pollsters may be bamboozling survey respondents by asking trick questions anyway. Obama then puts on his Pollster in Chief hat and shows how he would have asked the question:

Depending on how you phrase the question — if you said to the American people, “Is it a good idea for the United States not to pay its bills and potentially create another recession that could throw millions of more people out of work,” I feel pretty confident I could get a majority on my side.


“They don’t for a minute appreciate Obama talking about the NFL lockout and telling small business to ‘eat your peas’ and suck it in and have more tax increases.” Conservative Michele Bachmann


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

Notice in one of his statements he mentions his agenda, he slides it right in there.......

I'd rather be talking about stuff that everybody welcomes -- like new programs..."

According to him, "everybody" would welcome more new programs.I don't think so, that is one of our problems, we have too much government and not enough of we the people.

He wants us to believe he is sincere about cutting the deficit drastically, then he says 'too bad I'm busy right now or I could give you some more programs'!

"Public Is Not Paying Close Attention"

And his reply to Chip Reid......More of his arrogance!!!! The general American public “is not paying close attention” to what is going on, as opposed to profesional politicians. In other words – Americans are just too stupid or ignorant to know what’s good for them!

South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir Wears Hat Given To Him By President G.W.Bush As He Celebrates Independence From Sudan, While Obama Omits Giving Credit To Bush

South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir wore the black hat given to him by former President George W. Bush when he signed the interim Constitution this last weekend.

Bush gave Kiir the black Stetson in 2006, according to the blog of the Middle East Institute. The hat instantly became Kiir’s trademark, and the institute said he has not been photographed without it since.

South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir (C) walks during the Independence Day ceremony in Juba July 9, 2011.

South Sudan became the world's newest nation early Saturday, officially breaking away from Sudan after two civil wars over five decades that cost the lives of at least 2 million people. Residents of the new nation — the Republic of South Sudan — danced in the streets, banged on jerry cans and chanted the name of the world's newest president, Salva Kiir.

"If I die on Sunday, it will be in a free country" – Southern Sudan

Investors Business Daily

Rather than give credit to George W. Bush and the Christian Right who made the day a reality, Barack Obama ignored their contributions in his message hailing the independence of South Sudan.

As South Sudan joyfully celebrated its independence from Sudan, President Obama hailed it as the fruit of partnership, togetherness, hope and unity. South Sudanese, however, hailed President Bush.

Proudly wearing the black cowboy hat given to him by President Bush, South Sudan’s new president, Salva Kiir Mayardit, couldn’t have made a stronger statement about who made his country’s independence possible after 50 years of warfare.

“It was George Bush and the Christian fundamentalists who heard the cry of South Sudan,” affirmed a South Sudanese man quoted by the Los Angeles Times.

“Today is Barack Obama’s day. We don’t know what he is going to do.”

But to hear the White House — in its official recognition of the new republic, as well as on the White House blog and in an op-ed published earlier this year, President Bush had nothing to do with this.

“Today is a reminder that after the darkness of war, the light of a new dawn is possible,” wrote Obama, as if such events just .. . happen.

Fact is, these events didn’t just happen.

In 2005, President Bush put South Sudan at the top of the U.S. foreign policy agenda. Knocking heads, he forced the murderous Islamofascist government of Sudan to negotiate with the South Sudan rebels, including their right to secede. That hard work led to today’s result — and with it, the first chance South Sudan has ever had to break free of its oppression.

Obama made sure to thank the African Union, civil society groups and even Sudan itself. But recognition of President Bush was relegated to nothing more than a nameless “U.S. leadership” that “played a part.” Christian groups that made it their cause were also ignored…

…If Obama can’t give credit to Bush for this accomplishment, it’s a sorry statement about his own leadership. The South Sudanese know differently — and thanked the real liberator of their new country.

After the performance it put on hiding everything significant about him and foisting him on the dumbass voters no rational person can trust it henceforth.

Debt Talks To Resume Monday After Testy 75-Minute Session

Debt talks to resume Monday after testy 75-minute session


By: Carrie Budoff Brown and David Rogers

Barack Obama called congressional leaders back to the White House for another round of budget talks Monday, telling them during a testy meeting Sunday that they will gather daily until a deal is reached, Democratic and Republican officials said.

In a bid to take his case to voters, the president also will hold a press conference Monday morning, the White House announced at the conclusion of the meeting.

During a 75-minute session Sunday at the White House, Obama told the congressional leaders that America is not a “banana republic,” so he won’t agree to several months-long debt increases that raise fears of a default, according to two Democratic officials familiar with the meeting.

He argued several times that negotiators should work toward a large-scale package for reducing the deficit rather than the smaller one favored by Republicans, calling on them to stand up to their base to get it done. He said both parties would suffer politically, but they need to do something substantial, said a third Democratic official familiar with the meeting.

“If not now, when?” the president said to the group, according to the official.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), who appeared to be speaking for the Republicans, argued that a grand bargain that includes new tax revenue would not pass the House, so they should fall back to the $2.5 trillion framework from the talks led by Vice President Joe Biden.

The meeting, which featured several sharp and frustrated exchanges, broke without settling much other than negotiators’ plans for their next meeting, according to multiple Republican and Democratic officials briefed on the session.

~ snipet ~

Don Stewart, a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), took aim at Democrats’ desire to shelter entitlement programs.

“The members will meet again tomorrow, though it’s disappointing that the president is unable to bring his own party around to the entitlement reform that he put on the table,” Stewart said Sunday. “And it’s baffling that the president and his party continue to insist on massive tax hikes in the middle of a jobs crisis while refusing to take significant action on spending reductions at a time of record deficits.”

House Speaker John Boehner Says “No Deal” to Obama’s Higher Taxes Debt-Limit Push

House Speaker John Boehner Says “No Deal” to Obama’s Higher Taxes Debt-Limit Push

The Daily Caller

News is out tonight that Speaker of the House John Boehner has essentially said “No Deal” to President Obama tonight on negotiations that would increase taxes as part of plan to raise the nation’s debt-ceiling and lower the deficit. Obama has been pushing for raising taxes, and Boehner has apparently told him he won’t be part of such a deal:

House Speaker John Boehner essentially walked out of debt limit negotiations with President Obama Saturday night. He cited an impasse with the White House on the size of the debt reduction package.

After abandoning talks, Boehner issued a statement saying:

“Despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the White House will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes. I believe the best approach may be to focus on producing a smaller measure, based on the cuts identified in the Biden-led negotiations, that still meets our call for spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of any debt limit increase.”

A bipartisan group of lawmakers is scheduled to meet at the White House Sunday to further discuss a deal to raise the debt ceiling to avoid defaulting on the nation’s debt. (Obama puts Medicare, Social Security cuts on the table)

72% Of American Voters Prefer The Free Market Rather Than Obama's Big Government Socialism

72% Favor Free Market Economy Over One Managed by the Government

Rasmusse Reports

Voters remain strongly supportive of a free market economy over one controlled by the government and still think small businesses are hurt more than big businesses when the government does get involved.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 72% of Likely U.S. Voters believe a free market economy is better than an economy managed by the government. Just 14% think a government-managed economy is better. Another 14% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here).

Republicans and unaffiliated voters overwhelmingly prefer a free market approach. Among these segments of the electorate, the number preferring a government-managed economy is in the single digits.

Among Democrats, 48% say a free market is better, but 29% think a government-managed economy is the answer. Twenty-three percent (23%) are not sure.

Wild Thing's comment.....

Here’s hoping they’ll hold on to that attitude through the 2012 elections.

And now if the voters could figure out which party is more favorable to a free market we’ll be making even more progress.

Navy to Cut Jobs Amid Obama's BAD Economy ~ 3,000 Being Forcibly Discharged

Navy to Cut Jobs Amid Recession-Driven Sailor Surplus

FOX News

With more sailors staying in the military amid a slumping economic recovery, the U.S. Navy is taking the unprecedented step of firing low-ranking petty officers to help rein in spending.

The Navy plans to let go of 3,000 young sailors after economic uncertainty put the service in the unusual position of having a manpower surplus.

The move comes as a new government report shows that the unemployment rate ticked up to 9.2 percent — marking 29 straight months that number has been over 8 percent and a record streak since the Great Depression.

In August, the Navy will convene a board to review the cases of 16,000 sailors and eliminate 3,000 positions, about 1 percent of the force. Navy officials say the jobs cuts will be based on experience and individual performance records.

It’s a complete reversal for the military, which just four years ago at the height of the fighting in Iraq, had a hard time meeting its recruiting goals. At the time there was talk of the Army being spread so thin it would not have enough fighters to conduct its wars. Now with the White House aiming to cut spending and pull troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, the need for more men has diminished.

Rep. Mike Coffman, who sits on the House Armed Services Committee and served in the Marine Corps, says it’s not a good situation for those young sailors.

“There’s no retirement for them and… there’s no severance for them,” Coffman said. “So essentially they’re with so many other Americans on unemployment.”

Coffman told Fox News it’s not unusual for the military’s retention rates to go up during bad economic times, but he called this particular case “unprecedented.”

“It’s never gone up to this level where so many people, the vast majority of people want to stay in the United States Navy.”

The Air Force retention rates are also up to a 6-year high, causing it to convene a similar reduction-in -force board. The Air Force will review the records of more than 9,000 officers, mostly majors, and roughly 400 are expected to be let go.

Fox News military analyst and retired Maj. Gen. Bob Scales, says it all boils down to pressure on Washington to save money and simple arithmetic.

“The quickest way to reduce the budget for the military is to cut people,” Scales said. “They can be pulled out of the ranks immediately and the savings are immediate. Whereas when you try to cut programs often times for new weapons systems it takes years, if not decades, to get all that money back.”

The retention rate for sailors with one to six years of service rose 10 percent from 2005 to 2010. And the Navy is overstaffed in 31 different job categories: jet engine mechanics, avionics technicians, electricians.

“What we’re seeing in the Navy is just the tip of iceberg for all the services,” Scales said. “The Air Force and the Navy have gone down in strength over the last few years and as the troops return from Afghanistan and Iraq and as pressure mounts on the defense budget, we’re going to see similar consequences for the ground services.”

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced in January that as the wars come to a close in 2015 the Pentagon has plans to cut active-duty soldiers by 27,000 and reduce the Marine Corps by roughly 15,000.

In October, the Army will begin cutting its ranks by 22,000 — and that means even more job seekers in a market with fewer and fewer good jobs.

What I find sad is that they're going to kick guys out who more than likely would stay in, who will be left high and dry with little or no job prospects in this lousy economy.

It is absolutely unacceptable to treat military personnel who have committed themselves to serving our country this way. In a world where other federal government employees are given better salary, benefits and treatment than private sector workers and where Obamas staff enjoys bigger raises and perks, I don’t care what it costs, give these men a decent severance, outplacement services, and the same courtesy many private companies extend to redundant workers.

Air Force Pilot Missing From Vietnam War Identified

Air Force pilot missing from Vietnam War identified


The remains of an Air Force pilot missing in action from Vietnam have been identified and returned to his family for burial with full military honors, the Defense Department announced Thursday.

The long-missing aviator, Maj. Richard G. Elzinga of Shedd, Ore., was to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery, Va., on Friday.

Elzinga and his co-pilot went missing during a March 26, 1970, flight in their O-1G Bird Dog aircraft over Laos, according to a release. Search-and-rescue missions were held for two days after the two were declared missing.

Teams from the U.S. and the Lao People’s Democratic Republic led by the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command uncovered the human remains and aircraft wreckage between 1994 and 2009, according to the release.

Using forensic identification tools and circumstantial evidence, scientists from the Armed Forces DNA Identification Laboratory matched mitochondrial DNA to Elzinger's aunt and his cousin.

Worst President ( Obama ) Responds To HIS Economic Failure Blames Greece, Natural Disasters etc.

Obama blamed : earthquakes, tornadoes, state budget cuts, gas prices, local budget cuts and Greece for the latest spike in the unemployment rate.

A year after the WH proclaimed “recovery summer,: and two years after a trillion dollar “stimulus” program, the President blamed a series of “headwinds” for what he described as a “rocky” “recovery.” Obama said Greece, natural disasters, high gas prices, state budget cuts and uncertainty about the debt ceiling were prohibiting the economy from creating more jobs, which critics called just more finger-pointing from the White House. “Streamlining the patent process” and new infrastructure spending were a few solutions to the jobs crisis offered by the President this morning, leaving many economists scratching their heads. Looking detached, Mr. Obama plodded back into the White House with his head down, without acknowledging any responsibility for the economy for the struggling economy and appearing to some critics extremely out of touch.


CNBC’s Rick Santelli: “Nothing will pass the House if they stick together.”

“I don’t believe in compromise on spending. There’s no compromise. Stop spending!”


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

These are Obama's policies, they’ve been in place for more than enough time and it should show every voter why socialism and big governement do NOT work. No way no how!

And Rick is right, I love his passion. Rick is absolutely right, they were sent to DC to trim spending, not raise taxes.

First he gave us the modern Tea Party, and now a vision of Tax & Spend as "Democrat Roulette".

New Black Panthers and Farrakhan: Obama only shoots iblack or brown people

America Will Be Drowned in Blood…Obama Only Shoots Black or Brown People: New Black Panthers Leader, Farrakhan, Nation of Islam & Cynthia McKinney Call Libya a Race War

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

Farrakhan is a demon he is looking for an all out war between black and white.

Why are so many black people so obsessed with race and skin color? Islam's Mohammed had black slaves and called black people monkeys and pigs, yet blacks (mostly in prison) flock to islam. I don’t get it.

Obama Expected to Boost ‘Gun Safety’ by Executive Order ~ He Does Hate Our Constitution!!

Obama Expected to Boost ‘Gun Safety’ by Executive Order


Six months after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot, the White House is preparing to propose some new steps on gun safety, though they're likely to fall short of the bold measures activists would like to see.

Spokesman Jay Carney said that the new steps would be made public "in the near future." He didn't offer details, but people involved in talks at the Justice Department to craft the new measures said they expected to see something in the next several weeks.

Whatever is proposed is not expected to involve legislation or take on major issues, like banning assault weapons, but could include executive action to strengthen the background check system or other steps.

"The president directed the attorney general to form working groups with key stakeholders to identify common-sense measures that would improve American safety and security while fully respecting Second Amendment rights," Carney said Thursday. "That process is well under way at the Department of Justice, with stakeholders on all sides working through these complex issues, and we expect to have some more specific announcements in the near future."

Anti-gun groups have been disappointed to see no action so far from President Barack Obama, who supported tough gun control measures earlier in his career but fell largely silent upon becoming president. Some activists were using the opportunity of the six-month anniversary of the Giffords shooting on Friday to speak up.

The shooting rampage in Tucson, Ariz., killed six people and wounded more than a dozen others, including Giffords. Two months later, Obama wrote an opinion piece in Giffords' local paper, the Arizona Daily Star, calling for "sound and effective steps" to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, including strengthening background checks. So far the president has done nothing and administration officials have signaled that no major steps should be expected, given the climate in Congress against gun legislation of any kind.

That's not stopping activists from pushing Obama. The group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, headed by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, sent Obama a letter calling him to act.

"To prevent the next Tucson, we need a comprehensive background check system, which is what the president called for in April," said the director of the mayors' group, Mark Glaze. "That said, there are many steps the president can take on his own authority, without new laws, that could make a very real difference."

The group's suggestions included enforcing reporting laws that could have stopped the Tucson shooter from getting a weapon.

Wild Thing's comment......

They are recommending Obama do it by Executive action, eh?

How about, uh, NO murdering your own agents? How about NOT arming narco-traffickers...?

How about simply not, “going gangstah”, huh? How’s that for executive action..?

Sending 30,000 guns to the narco armies south of the border certainly was a good idea huh obama....sheesh!

Obama sure loves keeping busy with his trampling the Constitution.

Obama should be tried for treason.

State of Texas Executes Illegal Alien Humberto Leal Garcia for Murder of 16-Year Old Girl

Adria Sauceda, was a 16 year old girl that Humberto Leal Garcia, Jr. brutally raped, mutilated and murdered.

Fox News had reported that the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay has asked Gov. Rick Perry to commute the death sentence to life in prison for Humberto Leal Garcia.

Also Mexican government and Barack Obama kept demanding to delay the execution saying it was because his rights were violated.

The crime:

In the early hours of May 21, 1994, 16-year-old Adria Sauceda and dozens of others attended a raucous Southside house party on Vincent Street, where witnesses reported seeing a dazed Sauceda — pumped full of alcohol, cocaine, and marijuana — pulled to the backyard. There she was stripped and circled by eight or nine men, each “taking turns” on the disoriented teenager. Friends who came to her aid were told to shut up, drink, and quit spoiling the party.
Humberto Leal later abducted this already brutally savaged teenager and raped her some more before finally ending your misery by crushing in her skull with a 35 lb chunk of asphalt. When police found her dead and ravaged body on the side of the dirt road where Leal left her, there was still a large stick that had a screw protruding from it that Leal left jammed up her lifeless body after he raped her with it.


Wild Thing's comment.....

This took 17 years to do what should have been done 15 years ago.

He was brought here by illegal parents when he was 2 years old. How they think this POS warrants treaty rights of a Mexican National is beyond me. Why does the Mexican government even claim as a citizen a rapist who bludgeoned his 16-year-old victim with a 35-pound piece of asphalt?

Glad Gov. Perry has essentially told the UN and Obama to stick it. Republican Texas Governor Rick Perry has blown off everyone and refused to stay the execution. A federal judge has also refused to stop it.

Iran Threatens 'serious action' Over BBC Plans To Screen Documentary Series On Muslim Prophet Muhammad

Iran threatens 'serious action' over BBC plans to screen documentary series on Muslim prophet Muhammad

The Daily

The BBC is courting controversy with its plans to broadcast a documentary series about Muslim prophet Muhammad.

Three-part series The Life of Muhammad has already been blasted by officials in Iran, who claim the country will take ‘serious action’ if it is screened.

The Iranian minister of cultural and Islamic guidance, Mohammad Hosseini, who has yet to watch any of the series, has branded the film an attempt by the ‘enemy’ to ‘ruin Muslims’ sanctity’.

‘The BBC’s decision to make a documentary on the life of [the] prophet Muhammad seems dubious and if our suspicions are proved to be correct, we will certainly take serious action,’ he told Iran’s Fars news agency.

The documentary, to be broadcast in mid-July, just ahead of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in August, will see journalist and TV presenter Rageh Omaar travel to the place of Muhammad’s birth, Mecca, to re-trace the footsteps of the prophet.

However, the series will feature no visual images of Muhammad in a bid not to offend Muslims, whose religion forbids depiction of the prophet.

Instead, a spoken description of Muhammad will be given, making this the first biographical documentary not to feature visual images of the subject.

The documentary will include three episodes, an hour each, on BBC 2.

The film tells the 'extraordinary story of a man who, in little more than 20 years, changed the world forever', according to the blurb.

Part of the filming takes place in holy cities Mecca and Medina where non-Muslims are banned from entering.

The first episode looks at the circumstances and society that Muhammad was born into, according to Riazat Butt from the Guardian.

She said that the film follows Muhammad's childhood and early years when he is orphaned and looked after by his uncle.
'The documentary does not shy away from contention but doesn't immerse itself in the details either,' said Ms Butt, who saw a screening attended by Muslim Mr Omaar in London today.
'The programme also addresses the issue of the satanic verses, not just the apocalyptic fall-out from the Rushdie book but the incident where a supposedly divine revelation - acknowledging pagan gods - was later withdrawn because it was designed as a test.'
She said that as an opening episode it's fairly heavy going if you're new to the finer points of Islamic theology or Islam.
'But it's well filmed, has plenty of access to the relevant sites and has a diverse line-up of talking heads - [authors] Karen Armstrong, Tariq Ramadan, Robert Spencer, Michael Nazir-Ali and Tom Holland,' she added.

The documentary-makers claims the film will raise questions about Islam's role in the world today and explore 'where Islam's attitudes towards money, charity, women, social equality, religious tolerance, war and conflict originate'.

Mr Omaar, the Middle Eastern correspondent for Al Jazeera English, said: 'I am extremely pleased to be presenting this exciting and groundbreaking series.

'The details of Muhammad's life really are little known, and I hope that my series will – for many – shine a light on the very beginning of Islam, taking viewers to the heart of this faith, illustrating just how Muhammad's life and legacy is as important today as it was a over a thousand years ago.'

The show was commissioned by the BBC's first Muslim head of Religion & Ethics, Aaqil Ahmed.

The BBC said: 'In line with Islamic tradition, it does not depict any images of the face of Muhammad, or feature any dramatic reconstructions of Muhammad's life.'

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

Needs rewriting: The film tells the 'extraordinary story of a psychotic paedophile who, in little more than 20 years, ruined the lives of billions forever.'

Senator Marco Rubio:"We don’t need new taxes. We need new taxpayers, people that are gainfully employed" ~ Marco Is Great!

“We don’t need new taxes. We need new taxpayers, people that are gainfully employed, making money and paying into the tax system. Then we need a government that has the discipline to take that additional revenue and use it to pay down the debt and never grow it again,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said on the Senate floor.

Here’s the actual clip from Rubio in full, queued at 5:32 to start where he begins to give this speech which ends at the 11:00 mark:

Rush says that Republican leadership is talking about loop holes and revenues when they should be urging the President to live within a Congressional budget by not raising the debt limit and asking the President to make the needed cuts as painless as possible. But then he plays a clip by Marco Rubio which to date must be his best moment in the Senate. Rubio quickly gets to the root of the problem by saying that the real problem is jobs and that by fixing that problem we begin to fix everything else including debt and revenues. He adds that if the President wants to raise revenues, Republicans agree and they should move to help create an environment where people will create jobs. That’s how you solve the problem and that’s how you frame the argument.

Wild Thing's comment......

Marco has been doing such a good job. Being one of the many freshman in D.C. He is stood out and thank God for Marco and Allen West for talking a stand when they could just sit back and take it all in being freshmen they are not letting any of that intimidate them. They went to D.C. to speak for we the people and I am grateful!

Casey Anthony To Be Out Of Jail Next Week

Casey Anthony, acquitted of killing her daughter Caylee, will be released from jail next Wednesday, her attorney told ABC News.

Anthony, 25, was ordered today to remain in jail after Judge Belvin Perry sentenced her to four years in jail and a fine of $4,000 on her conviction of lying to law enforcement officials.

The judge gave her four consecutive jail sentences, but she has already served nearly three years and would get credit for time served as well as good behavior. Perry originally estimated Anthony could be freed in late July or early August, but Anthony’s attorney Jose Baez told ABC News that she will be released July 13.

Caylee was such a beautiful little girl, this really breaks my heart.

Stunning Developments With Obama and Holder's "Fast and Furious"

A stunning development in Congress’s investigation of the Justice Department’s “Fast and Furious” gun-running program: it was revealed that on July 4, Kenneth Melson, the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Obama administration’s intended fall guy in the scandal, broke ranks with his superiors. Without their knowledge, he gave an interview to Darrell Issa’s House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, accompanied only by his personal attorney. While a transcript of that interview is not yet public, it is clear that he blew the whistle on senior officials in the Justice Department.



Issa and Senator Charles Grassley released a letter that they sent yesterday to Attorney General Eric Holder. It is explosive, to say the least. You should read it in its entirety.

Here is the text of the letter:

The Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr.
Attorney General u.s. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20530

Dear Attorney General Holder:

Yesterday, Acting ATF Director Kenneth Melson participated in a transcribed interview regarding Operation Fast and Furious and related matters with both Republican and Democratic staff. He appeared with his personal counsel, Richard CullenofMcGuireWoodsLLP. His interview had originally been scheduled through the Justice Department to occur on July 13 in the presence of DOJ and ATF counsel. As you know, however, under our agreement Department witnesses who choose to attend a voluntary interview with their own lawyer are free to exercise that right rather than participate with counsel representing the Department’s interests.

After being made aware of that provision of our agreement, Acting Director Melson chose to exercise that right and appeared with his own lawyer. We are disappointed that no one had previously informed him of that provision of the agreement. Instead, Justice Department officials sought to limit and control his communications with Congress. This is yet another example of why direct communications with Congress are so important and are protected by law.

Specifically, no officer or employee may attempt to prohibit or prevent “any other officer or employee of the Federal Government from having direct oral or written communication or contact with any Member, committee, or subcommittee of the Congress” about a matter related to his employment or the agency “in any way, irrespective of whether such communication or contact is at the initiative” of the employee or Congress (emphasis added). Moreover, the prohibition also applies to any officer or employee who “removes, suspends from duty without pay ... any other officer or employee of the Federal Government ... by reason of any communication or contact of such other officer or employee with any Member, committee, or subcommittee of the Congress.” Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010, P.L.111-117, 123 Stat. 3034, § 714 (2010), as continued by §1104 ofP.L. 112-10- which extends the funding levels, as well as “the authority and conditions provided in such Acts,” through September 30, 2011.

Acting Director Melson’s cooperation was extremely helpful to our investigation. He was candid in admitting mistakes that his agency made and described various ways he says that he tried to remedy the problems. According to Mr. Melson, it was not until after the public controversy that he personally reviewed hundreds of documents relating to the case,including wiretap applications and Reports of Investigation (ROIs). By his account, he was sick to his stomach when he obtained those documents and learned the fullstory. Mr.Melson said that he told the Office of the Deputy Attorney General (ODAG) at the end of March that the Department needed to reexamine how it was responding to the requests for information from Congress

According to Mr. Melson, he and ATF’s senior leadership team moved to reassign every manager involved in Fast and Furious, from the Deputy Assistant Director for Field Operations down to the Group Supervisor, after learning the facts in those documents. Mr. Melson also said he was not allowed to communicate to Congress the reasons for the reassignments. He claimed that ATF’s senior leadership would have preferred to be more cooperative with our inquiry much earlier in the process. However, he said that Justice Department officials directed them not to respond and took full control of replying to briefing and document requests from Congress. The result is that Congress only got the parts of the story that the Department wanted us to hear. Ifhis account is accurate, then ATF leadership appears to have been effectively muzzled while the DOJ sent over false denials and buried its head in the sand. That approach distorted the truth and obstructed our investigation. The Department’s inability or unwillingness to be more forthcoming served to conceal critical information that we are now learning about the involvement of other agencies, including the DEA and the FBI.

The Role of DEA, FBI, and Other Agencies

When confronted with information about serious issues involving lack of information sharing by other agencies, which Committee staff had originally learned from other witnesses, Mr. Melson’s responses tended to corroborate what others had said. Specifically, we have very real indications from several sources that some of the gun trafficking “higher-ups” that the ATF sought to identify were already known to other agencies and may even have been paid as informants. The Acting Director said that ATF was kept in the dark about certain activities of other agencies, including DEA andFBI. Mr.MelsonsaidthathelearnedfromATFagentsinthefieldthatinformation obtained by these agencies could have had a material impact on the Fast and Furious investigation as far back as late 2009 or early 2010. After learning about the possible role of DEA and FBI, he testified that he reported this information in April 2011 to the Acting Inspector General and directly to then-Acting Deputy Attorney General James Cole on June 16, 2011.

The evidence we have gathered raises the disturbing possibility that the Justice Department not only allowed criminals to smuggle weapons but that taxpayer dollars from other agencies may have financed those engaging in such activities. While this is preliminary information, we must find out if there is any truth to it. According to Acting Director Melson, he became aware of this startling possibility only after the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and the indictments of the straw purchasers, which we now know were substantially delayed by the u.s. Attorney’s Office and Main Justice. Mr. Melson provided documents months ago supporting his concerns to the official in the ODAG responsible for document production to the Committees, but those documents have not been provided to us.

It is one thing to argue that the ends justify the means in an attempt to defend a policy that puts building a big case ahead of stopping known criminals from getting guns. Yet it is a much more serious matter to conceal from Congress the possible involvement of other agencies in identifying and maybe even working with the same criminals that Operation Fast and Furious was trying to identify. If this information is accurate, then the whole misguided operation might have been cut short if not for catastrophic failures to share key information. If agencies within the same Department, co-located at the same facilities, had simply communicated with one another, then ATF might have known that gun trafficking “higher-ups” had been already identified. This raises new and serious questions about the role of DEA, FBI, the United States Attorney’s Office in Arizona, and Main Justice in coordinating this effort. Nearly a decade after the September 11th attacks, the stovepipes of information within our government may still be causing tragic mistakes long after they should have been broken down.

Efforts to Oust Melson

In the last few weeks, unnamed administration officials have indicated to the press that Acting Director Melson would be forced to resign. According to Mr.Melson, those initial reports were untrue. Regardless of what we might have thought before about how he should handle a request to resign, we now know he has not been asked to resign. We also now have the benefit of hearing his side of the story and will have a chance to examine what he said and compare it to the other evidence we are gathering. However, that will take some time. Mr. Melson served as the First Assistant to the U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District ofVirginia for 21 years, from 1986 to 2007. That is a career position. After the controversy over the firing of the U.S. Attorneys, he took over the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA). He indicated that he was asked to convert to a non-career Senior Executive Service (SES), a politically appointed position, in order to speed the hiringprocess,andheagreed. However,his former position at EOUSA is currently filled by a career SES employee, Marshall Jarrett. As you know, for civil servants, the distinction between career and non-career status is significant.

In 2009, he said he was asked to take over as Acting Director of the ATF. Acting Director of the ATF is by its nature a temporary job. According to Mr. Melson, he was willing to serve the Department with the understanding that after a short tenure as Acting Director, he would return to a position as a career senior executive elsewhere within the Department. However, two days after he told Acting Deputy Attorney General Cole about serious issues involving lack of information sharing, the Wall Street Journal reported that unnamed sources said that Melson was about to be ousted.

The revelations about Operation Fast and Furious have focused intense scrutiny on the ATF. It has no doubt taken a toll on the agency and the good people who work there. Much of that damage has occurred because the Department prevented ATF from being more forthcoming and responsive to questions from Congress. This is the context in which Mr. Melson decided to submit to an on-the-record interview with private counsel, pursuant to our agreement with the Department.

Technically, Mr. Melson no longer enjoys the due process protections afforded to career officials. Given his testimony, unless a permanent director is confirmed, it would be inappropriate for the Justice Department to take action against him that could have the effect of intimidating others who might want to provide additional information to the Committees.

We hope that the Department will take a much more candid and forthcoming approach in addressing these very serious matters with the Committees. Ifother important fact witnesses like Mr. Melson have a desire to communicate directly with the Committees they should be informed that they are free to do so. They should also be notified that if they are represented by personal counsel, they may appear with personal counsel rather than with Department lawyers. Any decision about Mr. Melson’s future with the Department would need to be justified solely on the basis of the facts and the needs of the agency, rather than on his decision to speak to us. We encourage you to communicate to us any additional significant information about any such decision so that we can work together to ensure that it would not impede our investigation. For now, the Office of Inspector General is still conducting its review, and we are still conducting ours. Knowing what we know so far, we believe it would be inappropriate to make Mr. Melson the fall guy in an attempt to prevent further congressional oversight.

Project Gunrunner, often referred to with the sarcastic term "Gunwalker" is an ATF program that started in the mid 2000's. FFL's (Federal Firearms Licensees) in the border areas were asked to report suspicious transactions and those weapons would be entered into an ATF tracking database. When possible the suspected straw purchaser was tracked down and arrested.

Operation Fast and Furious is an offshoot of the Gunrunner program based in Phoenix. It was essentially an expansion of the Gunrunner MO with the stated purpose of tracking weapons to drug cartels. The difference with F&F is that ATF didn't arrest anyone. The weapons got sold, were entered in the database and accounted for only when they showed up at a crime scene....such as the shooting of Brian Terry.

report from the LA Times:

More federal agencies implicated in gun-trafficking controversy

The head of the ATF says the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration kept him in the dark about their role in the operation that allowed guns to escape untracked into the hands of Mexican criminals.

“On Wednesday, Mexican federal police released a videotaped interrogation with recently captured Jesus Rejon Aguilar, an alleged founder of the Zetas gang there who is wanted in the slaying of a U.S. immigration agent in Mexico. He brazenly told them that “all the weapons are bought in the United States” and that “even the American government itself was selling the weapons.”

He added, “Whatever you want, you can get.”

Issa and Grassley said that over the holiday weekend Melson "was candid in admitting mistakes that his agency made."

They said he told them he personally reviewed hundreds of documents about Fast and Furious and became "sick to his stomach when he obtained those documents and learned the full story."

Melson said ATF agents had witnessed the transfer of weapons from straw purchasers to others "without following the guns any further."


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

Few people have been into this Fast and Furious thing which has surprised me, because it is huge and gets bigger all the time. This will go to the Office of the President and to the president himself if it is permitted to proceed unhindered.

The letter from Issa and Grassley about Melson’s testimony is astounding. It looks pretty likely that this could at least take Holder down. I'm sure he(Holder) will do everything possible to protect Obama from being implicated; but who knows.

My gut says the intent of this program was to undermine gun rights, blaming murders on such weapons that made their way across the US border.

My guess is Holder's first phone call will be to call his old buddy Bill Clinton.
Holder knows Obama will at some point HAVE to toss him under the yellow bus. And Bill is an old hand manipulating a scandal. I wonder how the Clinton's will work this scandal into more power over Obama.

This is international. NOTHING this big happens without full knowledge of, and permission from, the whitehouse. NOTHING. obama signed off on this. There is no way the DOJ or ATF could have done this on their own, let alome apprropriate money from other government agencies.

Mercury Vapor Released From Broken Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Can Exceed Safe Exposure Levels ~ Thanks To Idiot “environmentalists"!!

Clearing Fluorescent Light Bulbs

Mercury Vapor Released from Broken Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Can Exceed Safe Exposure Levels for Humans

New Rochelle, NY, July, 6, 2011—Once broken, a compact fluorescent light bulb continuously releases mercury vapor into the air for weeks to months, and the total amount can exceed safe human exposure levels in a poorly ventilated room, according to study results reported in Environmental Engineering Science, a peer-reviewed online only journal published monthly by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.

The amount of liquid mercury (Hg) that leaches from a broken compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) is lower than the level allowed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), so CFLs are not considered hazardous waste. However, Yadong Li and Li Jin, Jackson State University (Jackson, MS) report that the total amount of Hg vapor released from a broken CFL over time can be higher than the amount considered safe for human exposure.

They document their findings in the article “Environmental Release of Mercury from Broken Compact Fluorescent Lamps.”

As people can readily inhale vapor-phase mercury, the authors suggest rapid removal of broken CFLs and adequate ventilation, as well as suitable packaging to minimize the risk of breakage of CFLs and to retain Hg vapor if they do break, thereby limiting human exposure.


Check out THESE Experience of the bulb blowing up! ~ Wild Thing

The American Thinker

*** A compact fluorescent light (CFL) on the ceiling burst and started a fire in a home in Hornell, N.Y. December 23, 2010. "Those are the lights everybody's been telling us to use," said Joe Gerych, Steuben County Fire Inspector. "It blew up like a bomb. It spattered all over." Fire Chief Mike Robbins said the blaze destroyed the room where the fire started and everything in it, and the rest of the house suffered smoke and water damage. The Arkport Village Fire Department as well as the North Hornell Fire Department required about 15 minutes to put out the fire.

*** "Bulb explodes without warning," reported, May 21, 2010. "Tom and Nancy Heim were watching TV recently, when Tom decided to turn on the floor lamp next to his recliner chair. 'I heard this loud pop...I saw what I thought was smoke, coming out of the top of the floor lamp,' says Tom. Nancy suddenly found glass in her lap. She says, 'I did not see it. I just heard it, and I noticed I had glass on me.'"

*** On February 23, 2011, TV NewsChannel 5 in Tennessee covered "a newly-released investigators' report that blames a February 12 fatal fire in Gallatin on one of those CFL bulbs." Ben Rose, an attorney for the rehabilitative facility in which Douglas Johnson, 45, perished, said, "This result is consistent with our own private investigation. ...We have heard reports of similar fires being initiated by CFLs across the country."

Concerns about the toxic mercury in CFLs are downplayed by the bulbs' advocates, but they shouldn't be.

Never use a vacuum cleaner to clean up mercury... The vacuum will put mercury into the air and increase exposure." You will also be looking at the cost of a new vacuum cleaner, because the Maine DEP research found it "difficult to impossible" to decontaminate a vacuum even with the advantage of sophisticated instruments the homeowner doesn't have.

Never use a broom to clean up mercury. It will break the mercury into smaller droplets and spread them.

Never pour mercury down a drain. It may lodge in the plumbing and cause future problems during plumbing repairs...or cause pollution of the septic tank or sewage treatment plant.

Never wash clothing or other items that have come in direct contact with mercury in a washing machine, because mercury may contaminate the machine and/or pollute sewage.


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

These bulbs are beyond stupid...dangerous and stupid.

As most of you know I have a thing against environmentalists. They have done more damage to our country then they have done any good. IMO

I would love to see Republicans repeal the incandescent light bulb ban. This stupid law was passed in 2007 ( Bush was president then ).... HOW COULD HE EVEN SIGN THIS INTO LAW ? Did the Democrat majority of that period send him a bill that was packed with so much stuff it slipped by, or did he know he was signing this into law? If the latter is the case, surely he didn’t think this through and didn’t know how much mercury the bulbs contain.

Obama's Administration Says Israel’s Inclusion On Terrorist Watch List Was A " Mistake "

U.S. says Israel’s inclusion on terrorist watch list was a mistake


Israel was included erroneously on a U.S. Department of Homeland Security terrorist watch list, a U.S. official said.

John Morton, the director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement division of the department, said Israel’s recent appearance on a list compiled by the department’s office of the inspector general was a mistake.

“The addition of Israel in the OIG’s list of ICE’s ‘Third-Agency Checks’ (TAC) was based on inaccurate information provided to the OIG during the course of its audit,” Morton said in a statement sent by e-mail to JTA. “The U.S. does not and never has considered Israel to have links to terrorism, but rather they are a partner in our efforts to combat global terrorism. The United States maintains close intelligence-sharing relationships with Israel in order to address security issues within its own borders and in our mutual pursuit of safety and security around the globe.”

The list does not fault government policies and instead recognizes the likelihood that a suspect traveler from that country might have terrorist ties.

If a traveler from one of the countries is detained, the country’s inclusion on the list triggers a special check by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.


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

An error ( ????) that happens to coincide with the sitting president's consistent stance toward Israel.

Nice they changed their story - sad that it was after they got caught.

I say it was NO mistake but done on purpose.

No Recession For Obama's 454 White House Aides: They'll Make $37,121,463 This Year

No recession for Obama's 454 White House aides: They'll make $37,121,463 this year

Los Angeles Times

In his numerous fund-raising and policy speeches around the country these days, President Obama often bemoans the difficult economic times and uncertainties afflicting millions of Americans, including the nearly 14 million still seeking work unsuccessfully.

The Democrat argues that his administration needs more time to straighten out the economic mess left by somebody else, who's been gone almost 900 days now.

But good news this morning: The challenging Obama era and 9.1% national unemployment rate do not include the 454 people now helping President Obama do presidential things.

This crowd is being paid a total of $37,121,463 this year. That's up seven staff members and nearly $4 million from 2008, the last year of George W. Bush's presidency.

Fully 141 Obama aides -- or nearly one-in-three -- earn more than $100,000 a year. That's also up from the 130 with that scale salary in Bush's last year.

Twenty-one Obama aides earn the top-dollar $172,200.

The staff names and salaries report, required annually by Congress, was released on Friday by the White House. The timing, however, was probably an accident because last Friday most Americans were not watching the news closely and were thinking of not working for a three-day holiday weekend

The 2011 White House salary report does not include mention of the 41 unidentified Obama staff members who owe the Internal Revenue Service $831,000 in back taxes.

Having Chicago connections appears to be useful for obtaining the maximum $172,200 salary from the Illinois ex-state senator Obama, who is paid $400,000 a year, almost twice the amount paid to Joe Biden for doing whatever he does. But he's only from Delaware.


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

Our tax dollars hard at work.

Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Chavez. Castro, Idi Amin, Obama.....all cut from the same cloth!!!! No difference. Tyrants all!!

There are now more White House aides than elected members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Rep. Allen West and his Weekly Wrap-Up

Rep. Allen West lists 15 potential grievances against the Criminal in Chief.

Rep. Allen West and his Weekly Wrap-Up 7-4

Dear Patriot,

Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and to all Americans. It is once again time for our weekly update.

During this time period I have done some extensive traveling. I returned from a 72-hour visit to Doha Qatar (Combined Air Operations Center) and Afghanistan this past Tuesday evening, 26 June. I can humbly state that in my first six months of being in Congress, I have spent more time in Afghanistan than our Commander-In-Chief in his first three years.

We released our Afghanistan summary report which you can link to by clicking here. Feel free to review and share with others. Ours was the first CODEL (Congressional Delegation) visit after the President's speech on Afghanistan troop reductions.

As I sit here typing this missive, I am pondering the 235th birthday of the longest running Constitutional Republic the world has ever known; the United States of America. I went back and re-read the Declaration of Independence, which was written 235 years ago by a young Thomas Jefferson. What many perhaps do not realize, is that the Declaration of Independence not only set forth a new ideal for government and challenged the status quo of aristocratic and sometimes autocratic monarchies, it contained a list of grievances justifying why, "in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another... that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation."

Here are examples of some of these grievances from the Declaration of Independence:

"He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing Importance, unless suspended in their Operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them."

"He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People and eat out their Substance."

"For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments."

"For imposing Taxes upon us without our Consent."

Now, I just started to consider, what if Thomas Jefferson were sitting with me right now this weekend and assessed what our Constitutional Republic has become under this Obama administration. What would he outline as the potential "grievances" as he did 235 years ago?

Since Mr. Jefferson cannot use Microsoft Word, he dictated these grievances to me:

He has enacted a fiscal disaster called the stimulus package of some $900B which increased the national debt and did not keep unemployment in America under 8%. It resulted in a reported unemployment topping at 9.8%. For the black community, which supported him by overwhelming numbers, an unemployment rate between 14-16%.

He has proposed raising taxes during a weak economic recovery which would adversely affect long term sustainable growth. He has proceeded to seek increase of capital gains, dividends, and estate taxes. He has not considered reducing the corporate/business tax rate of 35% in order to incentivize private sector growth. He has promoted a widening chasm and divisiveness in America due to his incessant class warfare rhetoric.

He has nationalized several aspects of free market production in the automotive, financial, and healthcare industries in violation of the principles of capitalism and free enterprise.

He has signed into law a healthcare vision which creates 11 new taxes (one of these taxes to be a tanning tax), 16,000 new IRS agents, $500B in cuts to the MEDICARE program, 159 new government agencies and bureaucracies (to include a 15 member panel of bureaucrats which shall regulate the expenditures of MEDICARE), mandated individual American citizens to purchase a private sector commodity (which is not supported by the Commerce Clause), and has provided nearly 1400 exemptions to political cronies from adhering to the law he signed.

He has increased the federal debt by some $5T since taking office and due to historic levels of excessive spending, created record deficits of $1.42T, $1.29T, and $1.65T in just three years. He has seen 41 cents of every dollar being borrowed and 47% of the federal debt owned by foreign nations.

His proposed FY 2012 budget was voted down in the Unites States Senate, 0-97.

He has expanded a "dependency" class in America reflected in a 41% increase in food stamp recipients.

He has failed to produce a full spectrum energy independence resource development program while seeing average gas prices during his tenure go from $1.89 to a high water mark of approximately $3.81. He has inappropriately commanded the release of strategic oil reserves and provided the country of Brazil $2B for its offshore oil exploration.

He has created a shadow government of some 35+ individuals termed "Czars" who are not confirmed by the United States Senate and respond only to him, yet have overarching regulatory powers- a clear violation of our separation of powers concept.

He has increased the regulatory burden on American business through bypassing the legislative process with his executive branch agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration.

He has supported an inept and incompetent Attorney General who has failed to prosecute voter intimidation cases (New Black Panther party), initiated a dangerous gun-smuggling program (Operation Fast and Furious) - which resulted in deaths to our own law enforcement agents, and refused to uphold a law, DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act).

He has failed to take the steps necessary to secure our borders and stem the flow of illegal immigration, termed as "repel invasions" in our United States Constitution in Article 1, Section 8 and Article 4, Section 4; and brought a federal lawsuit against a sovereign state seeking to protect its citizens from this threat.

He has violated the War Powers Act of 1973 and sought to redefine the term "hostilities" to suit his liking.

He has telegraphed troop reductions to our enemies- against the consult of his experienced Field Commanders, while embracing negotiations with our enemy, the Taliban, and recognizing another, the Muslim Brotherhood.

He has placed the security of our most trusted ally in the Middle East, Israel, in danger while increasing funding to the Palestinian Authority (Fatah, just another Islamic terrorist group) whilst they have enjoined a reconciliation pact with long- standing terrorist group, Hamas.

In conclusion, Thomas Jefferson simply stated that, in his humble assessment, the unalienable rights endowed to us by our Creator; life, liberty, and the pursuit (not guarantee) of happiness- are being threatened. He offered his analysis that this current government, the Obama administration, as instituted by the American people, has abridged the consent of the governed and that whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it.

So the 235th anniversary celebration of American Independence message to President Barack Hussein Obama, and his liberal progressive cronies, is simple: "You must go!"

Legislative Update: The House was not in session, therefore, no legislative update.

Highlights of the Week: Besides visiting with our men and women in Afghanistan, I attended the First Baptist Church of Ft. Lauderdale 4th of July celebration services. I was reunited with my former driver in Iraq, SGT Robert Delgado and we discussed the meaning of sacrifice. I participated in several Independence Day celebrations in South Florida, but most important was the "Wade-In" 50- year anniversary on Ft. Lauderdale Beach, reflecting on a period in our community's history when Edna Johnson and a few others challenged the beach segregation policy. And here I am, with the honor, 50 years later, of being the Congressional Representative of Ft. Lauderdale beach. America is exceptional!

Steadfast and Loyal,

A Statue Honoring President Ronald Reagan In London As A Tribute To His Presidency

This is a video report on a statue of former President Ronald Reagan was dedicated today in London as a tribute to his Presidency, and the role he played with Great Britain’s Margaret Thatcher in bringing down the Iron Curtain, and winning the Cold War. A truly great gesture, and one that is well deserved for President Reagan. Reagan joins Dwight Eisenhower, and Franklin Roosevelt as U.S. Presidents with statues in their honor in London.

A 10-foot bronze figure unveiled outside the US Embassy in London to mark 100 years since his birth.

London AP

Ronald Reagan was hailed as "a great American hero" Monday as his admirers unveiled a 10-foot-tall (3-meter-tall) statue of the former U.S. president near the American embassy in London.

Condoleezza Rice, national security adviser and secretary of state in President George W. Bush's administration, joined British Foreign Secretary William Hague at the morning ceremony in Grosvenor Square.

"Statues bring us to face to face with our heroes long after they are gone," Hague said "Ronald Reagan is without question a great American hero; one of America's finest sons, and a giant of 20th-century history. You may be sure that the people of London will take this statue to their hearts."

Hague also brought a message from former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Reagan's staunch ally, whose frail health has made her public appearances very rare.

"She has asked me to say these words to you: Ronald Reagan was a great president and a great man - a true leader for our times," Hague said.

"He held clear principles and acted upon them with purpose. Through his strength and his conviction he brought millions of people to freedom as the Iron Curtain finally came down."

A few days before Condoleezza Rice was in Prague on Friday as the Czech capital renamed a street in Reagan's honor, and she was in Budapest on Wednesday for the unveiling of a statue of Reagan.

These are among several events this year marking the 100th anniversary of Reagan's birth on Feb. 6, 1911, in Tampico, Illinois.

Nation's Largest Teachers Union Endorses Obama Re-election ~ Illiterate Dolts With Tenure Bought By Their Socialist Obama

Dennis Van Roekel, center, is the president of the National Education Association, which represents 3.2 million educators

Nation's largest teachers union endorses Obama re-election


A year earlier than usual, the nation's largest teachers union on Monday endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election in 2012.

The nation’s largest teachers union voted Monday to support President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election bid, marking one of the earliest union endorsements for the administration.

About 72 percent of the National Education Association’s representative assembly voted to recommend the president’s candidacy to its 3.2 million members, despite past disagreements between the Obama administration and many rank-and-file teachers who dislike parts of the president’s reform agenda.

An estimated 5,414 members cast their support for the president while 2,102 members said no during the summer convention held in Chicago.

The NEA becomes one of the first labor unions to formally support the president in 2012.

“We have the same shared vision of America. (The president) has always talked about the importance of education from preschool to the graduate level,” said NEA President Dennis Van Roekel. ” I don’t mind fighting on how to get to that shared vision. I believe out of that discussion may come ideas that neither one of us thought about and may be better.”

It is the earliest endorsement ever made by the union, according to Van Roekel. Indeed, the Republican field of candidates has not winnowed to a single candidate to oppose the president.


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

NEA endorses Mondale. NEA endorses Carter. NEA endorses Dukakis. NEA endorses Clinton. NEA endorses Gore. NEA endorses Kerry. NEA endorses Obama.

No surprise, it is sad though for the few teachers that are good, and do NOT drink obama's kool-ad of communisim/socialism.

NEA == Not Educating Anybody

July 2, 2011 (CHICAGO) The 14 Wisconsin state senators who left the state to avoid voting on a collective bargaining bill were honored by educators in Chicago Saturday.

Six of them were on hand to receive the Friend of Education Award from the National Education Association..."

From The Left: Independence Day Celebrations For Right Wing Propagandists by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

From The Left: Independence Day Celebrations For Right Wing Propagandists

by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Sequential events occurred this week which is a testament to the Left’s anti-American agenda. Two liberal Harvard University professors published a bogus study claiming that patriotic celebrations on the Fourth of July are a right-wing ploy to recruit adults and particularly children into the conservative right-wing camp. Is their treatise an example of the Left’s hatred of America’s traditional reverence for God and America’s foundations of freedom and self-sufficiency embodied in the Declaration of Independence? Firefighters’ local 321 in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin denied a recent union ‘dropout’, who supported Governor Scott Walker’s efforts to balance the state budget, his request of the union to sponsor a patriotic float commemorating fallen firefighters and police officers during ‘911’ for an Independence Day parade. Is this the Union’s petty retribution against the former member which has a larger effect of denying a patriotic exhibition on Independence Day? Obama this week lost his teleprompter and made a series of spontaneous remarks during an impromptu meeting with the pimp street media which openly showed his hypocrisy and demagoguery. This ‘President’ has been AWOL in helping Congress address his national debt crisis and even rejected Republican overtures this week to meet with Congress during recess in hopes of resolving the standoff. But as soon as Congress adjourned, Obama chided Republicans for not hanging around DC to meet with him with the remark “Where are they---one week here and next week not while I have always been here.” Then before the bowing lapdog media he blamed the largest annual budget deficit in history not on his irresponsible prolific spending but on the lack of tax revenue raised by such items as exemptions on corporate aircraft which he himself signed into law (and which amount to a miniscule sum). Steal, spend and lie---there you have it!

It was reported this week that a United Nations official has requested that Governor Rick Perry of Texas commute the execution of a Mexican national who raped and murdered a 16 year-old girl, stating the criminal was not given an opportunity for diplomatic assistance presumably from the Mexican government. Governor Perry is no idiot. Anyone who rapes and murders a minor gets what is coming to them under Texas statutes!

We also learned the Dictator-in-chief is seeking dialogue with and the good graces of the pro-jihad pro-Sharia Muslim Brotherhood in advance of upcoming Egyptian elections this Fall. The Brotherhood responded they do not trust Obama and issued a statement indicating that he was not transparent enough. Really? I thought Obama was their kin!

The Administration turns one blind eye to the leftwing National Mediation Board (NMB) which consists of three members, two of which are Obama appointees, as they try to dictate where Boeing Aircraft can manufacture airplanes and who it can hire. Boeing spent one billion dollars building a plant in South Carolina with intentions of hiring 2000 employees who voted overwhelmingly to reject union membership. The pro-union NLRB and NMB are challenging Boeing’s right to open a plant in a right-to-work state as the Administration conveniently looks the other way.

The Obama administration apparently has another blind eye among its many serpent heads. Along our insecure southern border, ATF agents who were whistleblowers on the BATFE and DOJ seditious scheme known as Project Gunrunner, whereby massive numbers of high-powered weapons were sold to straw buyers in Texas and then carried across the Mexican border to supply drug cartels, received their termination papers. DOJ and officials at BATFE deny they knew about this operation which appears to have been hatched by the Administration to invent statistics which could ultimately be used to encroach on our Second Amendment rights. Let’s wish Rep. Darrell Issa and his government reform and oversight committee the best in nailing everyone up the chain of command involved in this seditious scheme which resulted in the death of at least two ATF agents and which was designed to subvert our Constitution.

The Left continues to systematically attack our Constitutional rights from all sides and with increased frequency. This week it was learned that a director at Arlington Cemetery ordered volunteers who attend funerals for the express purpose of wishing God’s grace on the families of dead soldiers—and in some cases the soldiers themselves who have no relatives---to not utter the word ‘God’ in their prayers or personal condolences. This constitutes an incessant attempt by ACLU and the Obama administration to remove any reference to God from our culture.

The United States Congress has been remiss in not seizing anti-American maggots like Obama and Holder by their collars and charging them with sedition for breaking the rule of law and usurping the power of the people entrusted in our elected representatives. Where are you Congress? Wake up and fulfill your obligation to “We the People!”

Obama Hates Washington D. C. ~ Vote Him OUT Of Office So He Can Stay Out For Good!

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

Never have we had anyone as bad as Obama. Some have been close to being as bad, Carter for sure is a very close second and then there are Bill and Hitlery Clinton as well. But Obama ranks at the top in being the most hated, the worst president, the most arrogant, and the list goes on for miles how bad he is, as a person and as a president.

Rush Limbaugh in Joplin,Mo. Showing Support For Their Rebuilding


Here is raw video (you can hear Rush but not really see him in the cell phone video) from Joplin, Missouri last night.

Limbaugh was in Joplin to deliver ice cold bottles of his new line of teas –
Two if by Tea” – in honor of the way they are working together as a community to rebuild following the devastating tornado that hit in May. Limbaugh praised their spirit of rugged individualism and the hard work they are doing to rebuild. Limbaugh chose Joplin as the winner of the contest to receive the tea after receiving many letters from his listeners suggesting Joplin be the winner.

Rush pledged to keep the spotlight on Joplin as they rebuild.

"Those of you from Joplin, Missouri, you are the essence of what the founding fathers had in mind...You represent the best this country has to offer"

Rush Limbaugh in Joplin, Missouri at the 'Freedom Fest' celebration. Joplin also received a giant semi of 'Two if By Tea.'


Wiild Thing's comment.......

This is great that Rush did this. He was born in MO. and after the horrible Tornadoes they had there and all the destruction, this July 4th was such a wonderful positive encouraging thing to happen. God bless and give strength to those living there.

More about Rush's Two If By Tea:

Two If By Tea™ is a proud sponsor of the Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation and will donate a minimum of $100,000 to MC-LEF beginning in June 2011.

The Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation is certified as one of America's best charities and provides assistance to the children of United States Marines and federal law enforcement personnel who were killed on duty or died under extraordinary circumstances while serving our country.

This Foundation was formed in February of 1995, under the belief that our nation's most precious resource is its youth. The recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have certainly illuminated America's commitment to freedom. We are reminded that freedom is not free. The price is great. No one knows that better than the left-behind sons and daughters of America's fallen heroes. Through the continuous support of donors, the Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation has distributed aid with a value of more than $50,000,000.00 to eligible children.

Greece and Democrats by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

Greece and Democrats

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

“Let’s see if I have this straight. Greece is, but for Germany and other EU nations bailing it out, bankrupt. The long and short of how that happened is that Greece having joined the EU adopted a cradle-to-grave economic model and embarked on paying its workers dream salaries and retirement benefits, not to mention “universal” health care, such as that is. Costs rapidly escalated given increases both in the number and breadth of government programs.

Having found liberal lending at the EU “trough” the cure to its expanding largesse, Greek politicians believed the “borrowing well” was infinitely deep and would be a permanent cure for its spending addiction, much like U.S. Democrats and RINOs. In the meantime, Greek government unions, similar to California, Wisconsin and other places kept beating the drum for more. The government responded by borrowing more so politicians could dole it out to union members who in turn paid union dues, a portion of which was then used to help elect the same politicians who would continue the cycle.

But, interest on the borrowed money i.e. the Greek national debt, began to mount to the point where the EU realized that Greece was too far extended to service, much less repay its debt. The scenario is somewhat reminiscent of Zorba with Greece representing Zorba, in “Zorba, the Greek.” When responsible people at the EU awakened to the fact that it was impossible for Greece to service its debt, it instructed Greece to find ways to economize.

For a short time the Greek Government “cooked the books” but was soon found out and forced to begin to tighten its economic belt. Greek Unions/Socialists/Communists reacted by blaming everyone but themselves and the situation turned ugly; Unions foment riots seen daily on TV in response to legislative grappling with the out-of-control economic situation. Were Greeks so stupid like Zorba, as to believe there would never be a day of reckoning? (Are U.S. Democrats/RINOs any different?) That EU membership would not exact a toll on its sovereignty? (Democrats in general could care less about sovereignty.) That borrowing more than the country could produce would have no consequences? Talk about arrogant! “Because I am, you owe me,” a concept with a familiar ring in certain U.S. circles.

Across the Atlantic in Washington, D.C. Democrats and RINOs have the mistaken impression like Greek politicians, that the county’s wealth is theirs to give or take, and if taxes are not generating enough revenue, “raise taxes on the rich,” or borrow more from Communist China.

In short those people believe that the Federal Government owns the Country. Why else would Congressional Democrats unilaterally enact "Obamacare" over the objections of the large majority of U.S. population who will be stuck with the bill? Their mindset is abundantly manifest in the laws they have enacted. Notwithstanding their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, most are interested only in advancing their political careers, serving themselves and pocketing the change.

Democrat strategy has always been to overspend then “force” an increase in taxes to cover the costs. In the past that worked because of the expanding economy, but this time spending is so obscene that U.S. citizen taxpayers are rebelling. How to deal with the resultant debt is the struggle in the ongoing budget debate in Washington.

Increasing taxes on “the rich” would not work even if increased to 100% because there is not enough money even at that rate to cover Democrat/RINOs spending. Incidentally 100% taxation was Obama’s father’s “dream” not just on the rich, but everyone. If those who presently pay no taxes believe they will escape, think again, they will be forced to work, the days of the free ride are over, to at long last help carry the load of their “entitlements.” “Where’s my check?”

For decades Democrats/RINOs have spent so much that as of now future generations of U.S. taxpayers will pay taxes that are so high they will essentially work to support the government and government programs. Stated another way, everyone will work for the government and the country will have arrived at the oxymoron of a socialist utopia.

This prospect is both the essence and fulfillment of Obama’s and Democrats’ strategy to “spread the wealth around.” Although there is plenty of precedent to show that their model fails 100% of the time, liberals, whether in Greece or the U.S. are endowed with the inherent and inalienable intellectual fallacy that they are somehow uniquely equipped to pick up the clean end of the socialist “turd.”

Semper Fidelis.
Bob Pappas

Congressman LTC Allen West Talks About Sacrifice

The finale of a church's "Faith, Freedom and Fireworks" celebration on Sunday had the feel of a political convention, with indoor fireworks and a choir belting out "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" as red, white and blue confetti filled the air.

Fort Lauderdale’s First Baptist Church held its annual ‘Patriotic Celebration’ to honor those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. The church invited U.S. Representative Allen West to this year’s event to talk about the sacrifices the men and woman in uniform have made and continue to make as they protect out freedoms abroad. Many of you may be aware of Lt. Colonel Allen West’s own act of heroism and sacrifice when he gave up his body armor to a young soldier who lacked adequate protection during Operation Desert Storm- that particular body armor subsequently saved that soldiers life after he was shot in the chest.

The host of the event cut off Congressman West as he was about to tell the story and surprised him with someone else who could recall the story from his own personal perspective. Great video!

The Declaration of Independence In Congress, July 4, 1776

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain Inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Happy 4th of July everyone, especially our Military.

I celebrate it to honor the Americans who sacrificed so much to bring this nation to greatness. I celebrate July 4th to thank and celebrate the lives of each one of our Veternas, our troops serving today and our Founding Fathers.

No matter what the current state of the country is, it is good to remind ourselves what the founding fathers did to fight for freedom and to create a constitution and country based on freedom. No matter what, it should inspire us to perservere and to keep fighting for the right principles.

Never give up on freedom.

Democrat Harry Reid Orders A Full Session In Senate It Lasted Only 25-seconds BUT Reid Knew Session Would Count As Full Day Of Work

Senate finishes 25-second session

The Hill

The Senate completed a 25-second pro forma session just after 11 a.m. on Friday.

Most senators have left for the Independence Day recess but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) ordered the unusual pro forma session in order to keep the clock running.

Reid wants to hold a vote on a resolution to authorize President Obama’s action in Libya, and he needs to accrue some hours.

According to the Senate rules, legislation must percolate for 30 hours before it sees a first vote — unless a unanimous consent agreement can be reached to wave that time frame. Reid tried to get such consent on Thursday, but Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) objected, which started the clock.

Despite the length of Friday’s session, it counts as a full day of work.

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

LOL hard at work.

Can you imagine working 25 seconds of a work day and getting paid for the whole day. hahaha That has to be a democrat idea.

Good grief. hahaha

Threats From Democrat Biden to Union Members: If You Vote Republican, Don't Ask Me For Any Help

Biden to Union Members: If You Vote Republican, Don't Ask Me For Any Help

FOX News

Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged it wasn’t a political event, but it still didn’t prevent him from sending this warning to Teamsters union members during his address at their annual convention in Las Vegas this past Friday.

“And don’t any of you, by the way, any of you guys vote Republican,” Biden said. “I’m not supposed to say, this isn’t political. . . . don’t come to me if you do! You’re on your own, Jack!”

Biden provided the closing address at the 28th Annual International Brotherhood of Teamsters Convention at the Paris Hotel on Friday. The Vice President, who is known for his straightforward style, didn’t hide his feelings about the current labor union fights across the country. He believes they are under attack by his Republican rivals for no apparent reason.

“Look at Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, Iowa, Florida, Pennsylvania. Did you ever think in 2011 you would be fighting for the right to work for less again?,” said Biden. “What in God’s name did any organized labor union do to the collapse of this economy?. . . [I]t’s bizarre, but that’s the case they’re making.”

Republican governors in several states have sought to curb Union power in an effort to balance their state’s budgets.

Biden also jokingly took a jab at the GOP, suggesting they change their logo.

“Jimmy,” said Biden, referring to Teamsters Union president James R. Hoffa, “your (the Teamsters Union) logo is the horse’s head. Their (GOP) logo should be the other horse’s end.”


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

The trash which IS the Obama administration should be arrested for crimes against America!

Obama has made his threats in the past and Biden is joining in with the same kind of thing.Once again the left makes threats and the conservative believe in freedom.

Senator Rubio Talks Budget & Debt On Senate Floor ~ Good For Rubio! Obama Is Mass Destruction!

In fact, Rubio said Obama’s comments amounted to “class warfare,” and was, “the kind of language that you would expect from the leader of a third world country, not the President of the United States.”

GOP Sen. Marco Rubio speaking on the Floor of the U.S. Senate Thursday where he blasted President Obama’s statements at a recent Press Conference as “disappointing.” In fact, Rubio said Obama’s comments amounted to “class warfare,” and was, “the kind of language that you would expect from the leader of a third world country, not the President of the United States.”

Rubio went on:

“The bigger problem, though, is maybe the President fundamentally doesn’t understand how jobs are created. Politicians don’t create jobs. U.S. Senators don’t create jobs. Sen. Johnson pointed out jobs are created by everyday people from all walks of life that start a business or expand an existing one. And our job here in Government is to make it easier for them to do that – not harder. Threatening to raise taxes, threatening to wage class warfare does not accomplish that purpose.

Here’s what I would suggest to the President. I would suggest that we have done this before as a people in America. Things like a simpler tax code – people around here are in favor of tax reform. A simpler tax code, a manageable and sane regulatory environment, and of course, a Government that doesn’t spend money it doesn’t have. These things have worked before, and they will work again. I urge the President to lead us in that direction.”


Wild Thing's comment......

Rubio got it EXACTLY right, and I hope he understands that to be a rising star that continues to rise, he’ll have to be this blunt. This is not the time in our country to speak softly no matter how big the stick. It is a time to speak out loud and clear of the destruction of the left and then give an answer to taking our country back.

I know it would never happen, but can you imagine a debate between Marco and Obama. OMG that would be awesome to see Marco and his paasion for America and Obama trying to keep up with all his non-answeres and his threats and arrogance. Marco would leave Obama in the dust.

The same if it were Sarah Palin or Allen West. They would have the same effect on Barack Hussein Obama.

Obama's Arrogant Pronouncement: "I Got Five-And-A-Half Years More To Go"

A confident Obama said he understood that people are frustrated and he has yet to get "everything done," however he said this was only the beginning. "It's only been two and a half years. I got five and a half years more to go," Obama said at a fundraiser in Philadelphia on Thursday night. Full transcript below:

"And, Philadelphia, I know there are some of you who are frustrated because we haven't gotten everything done that we said we were going to do in two and a half years. It's only been two and a half years. I got five and a half years more to go. (Applause.) And there are -- look, there are times where I feel frustrated. But we knew this wasn't going to be easy. We knew a journey like this one, there were going to be setbacks, like there were setbacks during the first campaign. There are going to be times where we stumble, just we stumbled sometimes during the first campaign."

“No God But Allah” Appearing on U.S. Dollar Bills

“No God But Allah” Appearing on U.S. Dollar Bills

Family Security Matters

A lady in Monte Vista, CO had this dollar bill. This is her story. You don't think we're in a war. What thoughts come to mind! These are starting to show up around our country!

After dinner she took a $1 dollar bill out of her purse and displayed it on the table. Underneath the words "In God We Trust" someone had stamped the dollar bill in red ink---NO GOD BUT ALLAH. We asked her where she had gotten this dollar bill. She said it was part of her change in Alamosa, CO. We took a picture of her dollar bill. If anyone tries to give you one of these dollar bills as change...please refuse it and ask them to give you a dollar bill that has not been defaced.

Harvard: July 4th Parades Are Right-Wing

Washington Whipsers

Democratic political candidates can skip this weekend's July 4th parades. A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day.

"Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation's political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party," said the report from Harvard.

"The political right has been more successful in appropriating American patriotism and its symbols during the 20th century. Survey evidence also confirms that Republicans consider themselves more patriotic than Democrats. According to this interpretation, there is a political congruence between the patriotism promoted on Fourth of July and the values associated with the Republican party. Fourth of July celebrations in Republican dominated counties may thus be more politically biased events that socialize children into Republicans," write Harvard Kennedy School Assistant Professor David Yanagizawa-Drott and Bocconi University Assistant Professor Andreas Madestam.

Their findings also suggest that Democrats gain nothing from July 4th parades, likely a shocking result for all the Democratic politicians who march in them.

The three key findings of those attending July 4th celebrations:

When done before the age of 18, it increases the likelihood of a youth identifying as a Republican by at least 2 percent.

It raises the likelihood that parade watchers will vote for a Republican candidate by 4 percent.

It boosts the likelihood a reveler will vote by about 1 percent and increases the chances they'll make a political contribution by 3 percent.

What's more, the impact isn't fleeting. "Surprisingly, the estimates show that the impact on political preferences is permanent, with no evidence of the effects depreciating as individuals become older,"said the Harvard report.

Finally, the report suggests that if people are looking for a super-patriotic July 4th, though should head to Republican towns. "Republican adults celebrate Fourth of July more intensively in the first place."



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

Harvard and this study is admitting that the left wing, the Democrat Party and Harvard are all full of traitors.

Well Harvard asked for it and if no leftie speaks out to disagree with this, then we have a nice case of ammo here. A little something to throw back at the left when they claim to be patriotic. America-haters and July 4 do not go together.

Rightwingers usually tend to be Americans who love their country. Leftwingers are freeloaders who are only here for the freebies and government handouts. They are looking for a “cradle to grave” nanny state kind of life.

heh heh the left can have their parades on Halloween.

One day I hope the Lee Miller ( remember his speech at the GOP convention? it was awesome!). Maybe one day people like Lee Miller will see how their democrat party has moved so far to the left it is off the charts. That the progressives have totally taken over!!!!

Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer Says Obama Considering Bypassing Congress To Get His Debt Ceiling Raised

Schumer: Obama May Not Need Congress To Avoid Default — But Congress Needs To Act

On a conference call with reporters Friday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) acknowledged that President Obama may not need Congressional authorization to avoid a default on the national debt. But he noted, too, that the Constitutional debate on this question isn’t ripe enough yet for Obama to take an end run around Congress, even if Republicans refuse to increase the national borrowing limit.

I asked Schumer, a lawyer, whether, in his view, the administration had the power to continue issuing new debt even if Congress fails to raise the debt limit. He acknowledged that the question’s been discussed, but said the White House probably shouldn’t go there just yet.

“It’s certainly worth exploring,” Schumer said. “I think it needs a little more exploration and study. It’s probably not right to pursue at this point and you wouldn’t want to go ahead and issue the debt and then have the courts reverse it.”

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

The Constitution grants Congress, AND ONLY CONGRESS, the authority to borrow on the credit of the United States. Therefore, anything allegedly borrowed outside of the approval of Congress does not qualify as what the 14th Amendment refers to as “public debt of the United States, authorized by law” which “shall not be questioned.”

Key phrase: “authorized by law.” Only Congress makes law.

"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

The Obama Way ~ Wants Talks With Muslim Brotherhood, and Talks With Taliban But REJECTS Talks With Rep. Senators

Obama White House opened dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood this week.


The United States ( Obama) has decided to resume formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, a senior U.S. official said on Wednesday, in a step that reflects the Islamist group’s growing political weight but that is almost certain to upset Israel and its U.S. backers.

“The political landscape in Egypt has changed, and is changing,” said the senior official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “It is in our interests to engage with all of the parties that are competing for parliament or the presidency.”


Obama steps up efforts for talks with Taliban

Los Angeles Times

As Obama administration officials look beyond the planned drawdown of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, one path dominates their thinking about how to finally exit the war — a negotiated deal with the Taliban.

After months of quiet, behind-the-scenes diplomacy, officials last week began claiming progress in the effort to begin talks.

In Kabul, too, sources with ties to the Taliban confirmed that talks were underway.

"Negotiations have begun, and the Taliban have shown interest," said Waheed Mujda, who was a government official during the Taliban regime and maintains contact with Taliban leaders. "In the past, the Taliban has insisted that unless the United States leaves Afghanistan, it will never come to the negotiating table. But now it seems that problem has been solved, and that important condition has been set aside."

U.S. officials met three times this spring with Mohammed Tayeb Agha, an aide to Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, and have pushed to take Taliban leaders off a United Nations blacklist, a move that would make it easier for them to travel abroad.


Obama White House rejected talks with Republican members of the US Senate

White House snubs McConnell invitation to Obama


The White House effectively turned down an invitation by Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell for President Barack Obama to visit his members on Capitol Hill on Thursday to discuss raising the debt limit.

White House press secretary Jay Carney, while not directly saying the invitation had been rejected, said Obama did not need to hear Republicans tell him what they would not support.

That, Carney said, was "not a conversation worth having."


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

Jay Carney told the media earlier today that McConnell’s invitation was “not a conversation worth having.”

OMG can you imagine a president with this attitude... sheesh. And yet we have that now for the first time.

Thin Skinned Obama Gets Mark Halperin Fired From MSNBC For Saying : "I thought he was a dick yesterday"

Mark Halperin, editor-at-large for Time, called President Obama “a d*ck” on Thursday morning.

National Journal

Mark Halperin, editor-at-large for Time, called President Obama “a dick” on Thursday on a popular MSNBC morning show and then quickly apologized.

“I thought he was a dick yesterday,” Halperin, who also is a senior political analyst for MSNBC, said on Morning Joe, referring to the President’s conduct during his press conference.

Halperin was quickly terminated.


MSNBC has suspended contributor Mark Halperin indefinitely after disparaging remarks Halperin made Thursday morning about President Obama.

In a statement released Thursday, just hours after Halperin called Obama "a dick," the network said his comments crossed a line.

"Mark Halperin's comments this morning were completely inappropriate and unacceptable. We apologize to the President, The White House and all of our viewers," in a statement by MSNBC spokesperson Jeremy Gaines. "We strive for a high level of discourse and comments like these have no place on our air. Therefore, Mark will be suspended indefinitely from his role as an analyst."

Halperin was asked about Obama's press conference performance, to which Halperin jokingly asked if the show was on a seven second delay. He was told they were, and host Joe Scarborough urged Halperin to reveal his thoughts.

"I thought he was kind of a dick, yesterday," Halperin responded.

Later in the show, Halperin apologized on air after he found out his words were not edited by the delay.

"I completely agree with everything in MSNBC's statement about my remark. I believe that the step they are taking in response is totally appropriate," Halperin said in a statement. "Again, I want to offer a heartfelt and profound apology to the President, to my MSNBC colleagues, and to the viewers. My remark was unacceptable, and I deeply regret it."

The White House called MSNBC to complain about Halperin's remark, with Press Secretary Jay Carney calling it "inappropriate to say...about any president of either party." He said as much to executives at MSNBC, Carney told reporters, but did not comment on their decision to suspend Halperin.

Herman Cain Releases Awesome Ad About Obama Called "A Failure to Lead " ~ A Must See Video,Thank You Herman Cain!!


Wilid Thing's comment........

GOP candidate Herman Cain reminds voters what this election is all about. This is three minutes of must see video.

I love Herman Cain's passion, it reminds me of Sarah Paliln and also Allen West. Both of them have passion for saying what has to be said. And Cain is clear about what has to be done and what we need to do.

Of course the left will call him an Uncle Tom , just like that did with Clarence Thomas. The left has been calling Herman Cain names for years, even back when he stood up to Clinton on Hillarycare. He joked that he kept a list in his radio studio wall.

Here is something to go along with the video above:

Herman Cain To Speak At July 4 Philly Tea Party Event

"Herman Cain has chosen to spend Independence Day not in Iowa or New Hampshire but in front of Independence Hall where it all began."

Herman Cain is joining Ambassador John Bolton, talk show host Dom Giordano, businessman Joey Venuto and former Highlands, N.J. Mayor Anna Little as speakers at the 2011 Energy Independence Day Tea Party to be held 1-3 p.m., July 4 at Independence Mall, 5th and Market streets, Philadelphia.

"By joining us at Independence Mall this year, these statesmen are also recognizing the significance of our Tea Party theme," said Teri Adams of the Independence Hall Tea Party Association which is sponsoring the event along with the Cherry Hill Tea Party and the Diamond State Tea Party.

Music will be provided by the 286 Band.
The event is free although an after-party featuring soft drinks and hor dourves will cost $20. Reservations are required. Call 215-690-4043.
He made his name on the political scene by being instrumental in the defeat of the Clinton health care proposal in 1993.

Cain has a Philadelphia connection in that he managed the area's 400 Burger King franchises for Pillsbury in the 1980s taking the region from the least to the most profitable for the parent company within three years.

Texas Republican Congressman Ted Poe Calls For Termination of Obama’s Appointee Houston National Cemetery Director Arleen Ocasio ~ Good For Poe!!

Veterans Allege VA Censoring Prayer:

Local veterans say the Department of Veterans Affairs is consistently censoring their prayers, banning them from saying the words “God,” and “Jesus” during funeral services at Houston National Cemetery.

Three separate organizations have come forward complaining the cemetery’s director and other government officials are violating the First Amendment. Members from the Veterans of Foreign Wars, The American Legion and the National Memorial Ladies all complain of “religious hostility” at the cemetery.

Arleen Ocasio

A 26-page complaint outlines the allegations. According to the court papers, the cemetery’s director, Arleen Ocasio, bans the word “God” and requires prayers to be submitted for government approval.

“We were told we could no longer say “God bless you” and “God bless your family,” said Marilyn Koepp, a volunteer with the National Memorial Ladies.

The group attends about 60 funerals a week to honor veterans and console families.

Yesterday Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) called for the termination of Houston National Cemetery Director Arleen Ocasio.

Houston News

Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) on Wednesday, June 29, sent a letter to the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, DC, and issued the following statement in response to recent allegations regarding religious discrimination by the Director of the Houston National Cemetery:

“I am deeply troubled by the allegations that were brought to my attention when I met with members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in Houston,” said Poe. The director of the Houston National Cemetery, Arleen Ocasio, allegedly has engaged in aggressive hostile censorship of religion at the second largest cemetery for veterans in the United States.

“The First Amendment is a sacred right of all Americans, especially those who have honorably served — and given their lives — in the name of protecting the United States. Denying their families their constitutional right to the free exercise of religious freedom is disgraceful and shows blatant disrespect for America’s veterans. If these allegations are true, I formally call for the termination of Arleen Ocasio as the director the Houston National Cemetery. This display of authoritarian behavior and religious discrimination should not be tolerated.”


1) Director Ocasio and other Cemetery Officials instructed Veterans of Foreign Wars District 4 to remove prayers from its burial rituals and to no longer utter remarks when handling the discharged shell cases from the rifle salute to the family of deceased veterans.

2) Cemetery Officials instructed American Legion Post 586 to remove prayers from its burial rituals.

3) Director Ocasio told the National Memorial Ladies that it could no longer include “God Bless” in its condolence cards or speak a religious message to veterans’ families.

4) Director Ocascio shut down the Cemetery chapel; it is now a “meeting facility.”

THANK YOU to Congressman Ted Poe.

I looked her up in Google and she is from Chicago. ........ Ocasio is a native of Chicago

" Actions Speak Louder Than Words, Mr. President " ~ Great Ad From The NRSC

This is the new National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) ad that destroys Obama with his own words. The ad plays audio of Obama’s arrogant attack on Congress for not “leading” and cutting out time off to get a deal done on the debt ceiling crisis. While audio of Obama’s self-righteous words is playing, images of Obama playing ping pong, drinking beer, playing golf etc. are flashed on the screen. It points out that Obama has played 76 rounds of golf during his 2+ years in the White House, taken 48 days of vacation, and held 149 fundraisers.

It concludes with the statement on the screen: “Actions speak louder than words.”

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is the official political committee established by Republican Members of the United States Senate to help Republican candidates develop the campaign resources they need for the 2012 elections.
