U.S. Born Terror Boss Anwar Al-Awlaki Has Been Killed, Fox News Confirms

U.S. Born Terror Boss Anwar Al-Awlaki Has Been Killed, Fox News Confirms

FOX News

SANAA, Yemen – The U.S.-born terror mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed, Fox News confirms.

The 40-year-old, who was born in New Mexico, was linked to the 2009 Christmas Day "underwear bomber" plot -- a narrowly foiled bid to blow up a passenger jet approaching Detroit.

Awlaki was a major target for the US following the Obama administration's authorization last year of CIA and military attempts to kill him.

He was also linked to the failed Times Square bomb attempt in May last year and the November 2009 Fort Hood shooting, in which 13 people were killed by a gunman at the US Army base.

Awlaki's death follows an unsuccessful attempt on his life on May 5. In that attack, US aircraft followed and fired missiles at a truck in which the terror boss was traveling.

The attack came just days after the successful raid on a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan which killed al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden.

White House Quotes Romney ( because of RomneyCare) in Defense of Health Care

White House Quotes Romney in Defense of Health Care

FOX News

It's not every day that you see Jay Carney quoting Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney from the White House podium.

But that's what Carney did Thursday as reporters pressed for the president's reaction to the Affordable Care Act heading to the Supreme Court before the 2012 election amid questions about its constitutionality.

Carney's quoting served the dual purpose of defending the president and trying to drive a wedge between Romney and some of his Republican rivals, who have charged that the former Massachusetts governor's health reform law on the state level bears too much of a resemblance to the plan that conservatives derisively call "Obamacare."

"A former governor of Massachusetts just said the other day, 'The idea for a health care plan in Massachusetts was not mine alone,'" Carney said, reading from notes as he continued quoting Romney. "'The Heritage Foundation, a great conservative think tank, helped on that. I'm told that Newt Gingrich, one of the very first people who came up with the idea of an individual mandate, did that years and years ago. It was seen as a conservative idea to say, you know what, people have a responsibility for caring for themselves if they can. We'll help people who can't care for themselves, but if you can care for yourself, you've got to take care of yourself and pay your own bills.'"

Without ever mentioning Romney by name, Carney concluded, "That's the former governor of Massachusetts describing the individual mandate and why it's smart policy, and we certainly agree."

Romney, who leads the Republican challengers in the latest Fox News poll, has consistently tried to distance his health care plan from the president's and has repeatedly tried to raise doubts that the White House modeled their plan on his by noting they never reached out for his advice.

"Why didn't any one of them or the president ever call me and say 'what worked, what didn't?'" Romney said of Democratic leaders in April on CNBC's "The Kudlow Report." "Why didn't he pick up the phone?"

Romney added in that April interview that if such a phone call had taken place he would have advised the president, "What you're putting in place at the nation is not only unconstitutional, it's bad law, it will not work."

The White House on Wednesday asked the high court to hear a challenge on what the Obama administration considers their crowning accomplishment of universal health care. The administration wants the case heard regarding the legality of the individual mandate, the requirement to purchase coverage. "We look forward to the legal review that upholds the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act," Carney told reporters.

Carney even injected some humor when a reporter queried whether or not the president is "disappointed" that his big legislative achievement is now going to the high court and "could potentially become a pretty divisive issue" in 2012. "Potentially becoming a divisive issue?" Carney asked to laughter in the briefing room.

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

When a staff member of the most liberal president in the history of the US quotes a leading candidate in the opposite party, beware. Romney still brags about his crowning achievement he created and signed into law in Massachusetts. It hangs as an albatross around his socialist neck.

Romney won't be the nominee.

How can Romney have a debate with Obama about Obamacare, for instance?

ROMNEY: I will repeal Obamacare.

OBAMA: Why would you want to do that; I modeled Obamacare after Romneycare?

Romney Says The Heritage Foundation Agrees With Him On Romneycare and Mandates, But They Have Changed Their Position

Romney Says The Heritage Foundation Agrees With Him On Romneycare and Mandates, But They Have Changed Their Position

Mitt Romney's Romneycare dilemma: Heritage Foundation disowns mandates

Boston MA, Examiner

The drip-drip-drip of conservative opposition to Mitt Romney and his Massachusetts healthcare reform law is threatening to swamp the former governor's presidential ambitions. Now, a prominent conservative think tank is taking aim at a central tenet of Romneycare -- the individual mandate.

The Heritage Foundation, which promotes free market, pro-business, and conservative ideas, is now disowning its previous advocacy for mandates requiring individuals to purchase health insurance. In the process, the foundation is making an awkward situation for Romney even more excruciating.

Romney says his support for the Massachusetts law is compatible with his opposition to the national healthcare law because the issue should be left to the individual states. He says he supports Republican calls for repealing the national law.

But the Heritage Foundation is not taking aim at Romney's criticisms of Obamacare -- which appears to be symptomatic of Romney's reputation for flip-flopping political opportunism -- but at the very law he signed in 2006.

In a Washington Post column that was meant as a scathing rebuke of President Obama for crediting the Heritage Foundation with the idea of the individual mandate, the foundation's healthcare policy expert Robert Moffit explained how the foundation has changed it's position in recent years.

Moffit claims that the individual mandate is not only unconstitutional, but also does not do what it is supposed to do -- eliminate "free-riders" in the system.

Romney has been trying for weeks to put daylight between his Massachusetts plan and the Obamacare plan, while still taking credit for enacting the reform in the first place.

It's a precarious position to be in. But the Heritage Foundation just made Romney's position that much more untenable.


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

I wish the media and the debates would talk more about Romneycare then this constant bashing of Perry and things that he has already answered over and over and also all of the things that were lies have been debunked. Meanwhile Romney skates through and no one is hammering Romney about Romneycare.

Gov. Rick Perry Playing The Piano For Houston's 2 Minute Drill Segment

Governor Perry reveals his hidden talent, which has always had a huge impact in his life. ABC, Channel 13, Houston's 2 Minute Drill segment asks a question of each candidate that allows voters to discover the answers to personal and issue topics. This one is about Rick Perry.


This is a wonderful article about Perry and his wife. Well worth reading! ~ Wild Thing

Rick Perry: My wife prodded me to enter presidential race

The Telegraph

Governor Rick Perry, the Republican presidential contender, has said that "the reason" he is running for the White House was that his wife told him "to do your duty".

Speaking at a fundraising event for campaign donors in Beverly Hills, California on September 8th, Mr Perry praised his wife Anita, stating that "we grow beautiful women in Texas" and it was 45 years since they had first met at a piano recital near his home in Paint Creek, Texas.

"And actually, the reason I'm standing before you is that, I was quite comfortable and happy being the governor of the state of Texas, and as she shared with me, 'You know, you're reasonably good at it'," he said.

"But she said, 'You do not have the privilege to stand on the sidelines. Our country is in trouble and you have to do your duty'. And so honey I want to say thank you for prodding me across the line."

Some of Mr Perry's detractors have said that he was pushed into running for president and that his poor debate performances reflect a lack of motivation. A senior adviser to Mitt Romney, the Texan's main rival, said that Mr Perry had embarked on "a careless candidacy prompted by his wife" and campaign consultants.

Mrs Perry, however, is seen by the Perry campaign as a major asset and is being used to help introduce him to voters and "humanise" him after a recent drop in popularity that has seen him, according to a Fox News poll, slip behind Mr Romney.

Mr Perry often tells anecdotes about his wife. In his first appearance in Iowa, he took his jacket off and joked: "This shirt has a few wrinkles in it. It's not my wife's fault."

This week, Mrs Perry, who has previously remained in the background of her husband's campaigns, has been holding solo events on the stump. At a breakfast in Urbandale, Iowa this week she said that he was "going to be better prepared" at the next debate. "He's never had a debate class nor debate coach in his life."

The $1,000 per head Beverly Hill fundraiser was attended by about 150 people and hosted by Paula Kent Meehan, a philanthropist, former actress and model and co-founder of the hair care company Redken.

Mr Perry spoke in the Japanese gardens of Mrs Kent Meehan's opulent French Regency style home at 1174 Hillcrest, which she bought from Elvis Presley in 1971.

The event was private and followed a more exclusive $5,000 per head gathering in a small pagoda elsewhere in the gardens. A recording of Mr Perry's comments was made available to The Daily Telegraph.

Mr Perry talked glowingly of his wife, his childhood sweetheart, describing her as "awesome" and "my best friend and a wonderful mother and wife, First Lady and a great advocate for healthcare in our state".

Referring to the presidential debate held at the Reagan Library the night before, he said it had been "magnificent for Anita and myself to be overlooking those beautiful Simi Valley hills, to look out underneath the wings of Air Force One, to think about Ronald Reagan".

The Texas governor has often spoken of how influential she was in his decision to run for president. In an Associated Press interview in July, before he announced he would run, he recalled a "very sobering conversation" with his wife.

"It was one that made me sit down and reconsider my blanket rejection, if you will, of my interest in running for the presidency. I've gone from 'no way, no how' to 'I'm going to think about this' to getting comfortable in my heart and calm in my soul that this is an appropriate thing to do.

"I still don't wake up every morning and go, 'Man, being a president of the United States is something I dream about every day,' no more than, I suppose, a soldier on June the 5th or June the 6th of 1944 looked forward to running up the beach at Normandy."

Mrs Perry, a nurse whose father was a doctor, is a passionate opponent of President Barack Obama's health care reform. In a Time magazine interview this month, Mr Perry said: "I mean we've got one of the finest, if not the best, health-care systems in the world. She sees Obamacare as destroying that."

Katherine Cesinger, a spokesman for Mr Perry, told the Telegraph: “As the governor has said, Mrs Perry urged him to stop and take a look at this and really think about the opportunity that was in front of him.”

But, she added, there were also “a number of other people whose opinions and concerns and advice” he sought. “He took that all into consideration but absolutely Mrs Perry was a big factor in beginning that process.”

Poll Taken Says Majority Says as a CEO, Obama Would Have Been Fired

Fox News Poll: Majority Says as a CEO, Obama Would Have Been Fired

FOX News

If Barack Obama were president of a major U.S. company, he’d be fired by now. That’s what American voters think — by a 52–38 percent margin.

Fifty-six percent of independents think a corporation’s board of directors would have already handed Obama his pink slip. Nearly a quarter of Democrats also believe Obama would be out (23 percent).

In Obama’s real job as president, a Fox News poll released Thursday found that while 43 percent of voters approve of his performance, just over half — 51 percent — disapprove.

Eight in 10 Democrats approve (80 percent) of the job Obama’s doing, while nine in 10 Republicans disapprove (90 percent).

President Obama receives 31 percent approval among independents, which matches a previous record low in August. Over half of independents — 55 percent — disapprove.

Treasury's Bank Funding Obama's Administration’s Green Projects

Treasury's Bank Funding Administration’s Green Projects

The Secret Gov't Bank That's Financing More Solyndras

FOX Business

Sitting at the center of the Solyndra scandal is an off-balance-sheet bank at the Treasury Department that dates back to 1973.

This little-known government bank, the Federal Financing Bank [FFB], had a zero balance in 2008 for green energy projects, but now, with little Congressional oversight, it is giving out billions of dollars in loans to White House pet projects often at dirt-cheap interest rates below 1%.

In July alone, the government bank, which had $61 billion in assets, lent nearly three quarters of a billion dollars in taxpayer funds with no Congressional checks and balances.

Plus the bank is funding the insolvent U.S. Post Office; the White House’s expensive green car projects at Ford Motor, Nissan and Tesla Motors; a $485 million loan to an expensive solar project that’s lost $160 million over the last three years that’s backed by Google, BP and Chevron; plus the FFB is funding the teetering HOPE housing bailout program, which gives delinquent mortgage borrowers breaks on their loans.

And according to KPMG’s audit report of the bank, the FFB is losing billions of dollars in taxpayer money because it is forgoing collecting interest costs on already inexpensive loans that are financing projects at agencies like the Agriculture Dept.

What’s scary for taxpayers is this: The FFB can borrow unlimited amounts of taxpayer money from the Treasury for these kinds of political pet projects. Under the 1973 “FFB Act, the bank may, with the approval of the Secretary, borrow without limit from the Treasury,” says the bank’s audited statements from KPMG.

The Treasury Department’s inspector general is now investigating the bank over its $528 million loan to Solyndra. FFB’s chairman of the board is Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, and the bank’s board executives are Treasury officials.

Who is getting the FFB’s green energy money? As the White House and Democrats in Congress rail against tax breaks for oil companies, the FFB gave taxpayer loans to green companies with high cash burn that were spilling red ink.

GREAT Interview of Texas Gov. Rick Perry Says His Use Of The Word 'heartless' Was Inappropriate and He Answers Many Good Questions

The Hill

Rick Perry said Wednesday that he was sorry for saying at last week’s Republican debate that those opposed to providing an in-state tuition break to the children of illegal immigrants “did not have a heart.”

“I was probably a bit over-passionate by using that word and it was inappropriate,” Perry said in a interview with Newsmax. “In Texas in 2001 we had 181 members of the legislature — only four voted against this piece of legislation — because it wasn’t about immigration it was about education.”

But Perry stood by his argument that building a fence along the entire Mexican border was unwise. The Texas governor said that the fence would likely be expensive, ineffective and violate the property rights of those who owned land on the border.

“In the metropolitan areas where the fencing actually can play a positive role, absolutely,” he said. “But you have to have boots on the ground … having an obstacle without observation is no obstacle at all. So just the idea of building a fence and saying, ‘That will take care of it, let’s just build a fence,’ has never worked in the history of mankind.”

Another one With Tax Dollars!!! Obama's Energy Department Approves $737 Million Solar Loan Guarantee For A Nevada Solar Project

Energy Department approves $737 million solar loan guarantee

The Hill

The Energy Department announced Wednesday that is has finalized more than $1 billion in loan guarantees for two separate solar energy projects.

The decision comes several weeks after Solyndra, a California-based solar manufacturer that received a $535 million loan guarantee from the Obama administration in 2009, filed for bankruptcy and laid off 1,100 workers, setting off a firestorm in Washington.

DOE announced a $737 million loan guarantee to help finance construction of the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project, a 110-megawatt solar-power-generating facility in Nye County, Nev. The project is sponsored by Tonopah Solar, a subsidiary of California-based SolarReserve.

The Energy Department said the project will result in 600 construction jobs and 45 permanent jobs.

“If we want to be a player in the global clean energy race, we must continue to invest in innovative technologies that enable commercial-scale deployment of clean, renewable power like solar,” Energy Secretary Steven Chu said in a news release. “Solar generation facilities, like the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project, help supply energy to local utilities and create hundreds of good, American clean energy jobs.”

Republicans in Congress have raised concerns that the Energy Department will be forced to rush the final review of the projects because of the tight deadline. But top Energy Department officials said they will not approve any projects without subjecting them to detailed analysis.

The Solyndra controversy has cast a shadow over the Energy Department’s loan-guarantee program, which provides financing for renewable energy, advanced biofuels and electric power transmission projects.

Republicans allege that the administration missed a series of warning signs that hinted at Solyndra’s financial troubles.

Republicans on both the House Oversight and Government Reform and Energy and Commerce committees have launched investigations into the loan-guarantee program as a result of the Solyndra bankruptcy.

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

This IMO is a straight up giving the finger to the American people. And Harry Reid in Nevada how much is he in this.

If these companies have such great hope and such potential, why can't they raise the private capital?

They are still investigating the other scam Obama pulled off with our tax dollars for Solyndra.One would think they would hold off for awhile. ( shaking my head) it just never stops with these people. They keep pushing ahead and spending more and more and more.

MTV Turns Down Obama's Get Out the Vote Campaign: " high unemployment rate would turn them off to their candidate"

New York Post

Obama’s re-election campaign wants to connect with young Americans and reached out recently to MTV for help — but the cable network turned them down, sources tell The Post.

The president’s Get Out the Vote campaign, run by Buffy Wicks, concerned the high unemployment rate of the so-called millennial generation would turn them off to their candidate, asked the network of “Jersey Shore” about helping to supply them with ideas on how to deal with their, er, situation.

The campaign called MTV’s internal ad agency, MTV Scratch, for assistance in mid-August, sources familiar with the conversations said.

MTV Scratch, run by Ross Martin, former MTVU boss, and Anne Hubert, who was a policy adviser to Jon Corzine when he was a US senator from New Jersey, works across all the MTV Networks and helps marketers such as General Motors and Dr. Pepper understand the mind-set of young people.

The re-election effort wants to reconnect with youth, which were among its most fervent supporters in 2008.

“The youth initiative is having trouble with big donors and youth votes,” said a person familiar with the discussions.“They asked, ‘Can you tell us how we should be talking to them?’ ” one source noted.

Viacom’s unit took a few weeks before getting back to the campaign to decline its invitation, saying that it doesn’t do political work.

Obama Asks House Dem To File His Jobs Bill ( $447 tax bill), Bill Still Has No Co-sponsors

Obama jobs bill filed in the House ‘at the request of the president,’ but with no cosponsors

The Daily Caller

The Daily Caller has learned that Connecticut Democratic Rep. John Larson has introduced President Barack Obama’s jobs plan in the House of Representatives “at the request of the president” and that the bill has no co-sponsors.

Subsequent to The Daily Caller’s earlier reporting on Republican Rep. James Lankford of Oklahoma’s comments about the bill not being filed in the House, a senior Democratic aide told TheDC the legislation was first introduced in the Senate on Sept. 13 by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and in the House on Sept. 21 “at the request of the President.” Both versions, H.R. 12 and S. 1549 contain the same language and have no co-sponsors.

“Members have not been asked to co-sponsor the bill. Instead, members have asked that the GOP leadership bring it up so we can address the need for job creation in this country,” a senior Democratic aide told TheDC. “We weren’t chasing co-sponsors.”’

House Speaker John Boehner’s office declined to comment on the likelihood of the legislation being considered in the House .

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

They don't want any part of that jobs bill. This has got to be really ticking Obama off how they are ignoring it and not even co -sponsering it. He is poison to any dem politician.

From Rush Limbaugh: "So this bill, this $447 tax bill, not a jobs bill, let's be clear about that, it is not a jobs bill. In fact, let's be clear about something else. Obama has never submitted a jobs bill. There is not one piece of legislation, whether it's the stimulus bill or Porkulus bill, whatever, there has not been one jobs bill submitted by Obama, and this one isn't, either. This is for show. This is all it's for, is talking points on the stump. It is designed to exist in principal only. It's designed to exist so that Obama can lie about what it really is 'cause it's not a jobs bill, and it exists so that the lack of action on it can be blamed on the Republicans as he does his combo Harry Truman/FDR campaign, Truman running against the do-nothing Congress, and FDR just growing government on steroids.

Rick Perry An Immigration Radical? Hardly

Fort Worth Star Telegram is a major Obama supporter and has never been kind to Perry ~ Wild Thing

Rick Perry an immigration radical? Hardly

Fort Worth Star Telegram

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is a radical who encourages illegal immigration.


That incendiary line of attack in the free-for-all among Republican presidential hopefuls begs for a deep breath and a dose of rational reflection.

Since 2001, Texas has allowed students to qualify for in-state college tuition if they've lived in the state for three years leading to high school graduation, completed their studies for a diploma or a GED, and enrolled at a public higher education institution.

Citizens, legal residents and other immigrants can get lower rates under the law. Students who meet the criteria but aren't U.S. citizens yet must file a statement that they intend to seek legal status.

The policy, which won widespread support in the Legislature before getting Perry's signature, has moral, practical and financial dimensions.

Illegal immigrant students who qualify under the law for in-state tuition were brought to the United States as children; consider this their home; and, by staying in school, have demonstrated a commitment to better themselves and become civic contributors. They most likely are not going anywhere, so it's more sensible, as Perry has pointed out, to make sure they're educated than a "drag on our society."

Perry's Republican opponents portray this well-considered decision as an inconceivable giveaway of taxpayer benefits to the undeserving.

At the Sept. 22 Republican debate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said that "an illegal alien" could get a "$100,000 discount" for four years at the University of Texas: "That kind of magnet draws people into this country to get that education, to get the $100,000 break. It makes no sense."

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania also tried to paint Perry as some immigration softie who's handing out money bags at the border.

But here's some perspective.

The flagship UT Austin is one of the most expensive state universities and the hardest to get into. Tuition for full-time undergraduate students varies by academic college: For a business student, the four-year benefit of in-state over out-of-state tuition amounts to $99,640. For a liberal arts student, it the difference would be $87,024 over four years.

So, Romney's not far off on the four-year figure. But according to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, in the 2009-10 fiscal year, 612 students at UT Austin qualified for in-state tuition under the special provisions.

The Coordinating Board doesn't have a breakdown of how many of the students are here illegally.

Overall during 2009-10, 16,476 students qualified under the residency law for in-state rates: 12,028 were enrolled at Texas' 80 community, technical and state colleges; 4,403 were at the 35 public universities; and 45 were at eight health-related institutions.

That represents about 1 percent of all students enrolled in the state's colleges and universities, according to the Coordinating Board.

Support has come from the influential Texas Association of Business and chambers of commerce, as well as educators, the Texas Catholic Conference and civil libertarians.

In 2009, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott upheld the law. This summer, the U.S. Supreme Court also rejected a challenge to a similar law in California.

Maybe this kind of policy choice wasn't right for Romney's Massachusetts, Santorum's Pennsylvania or Bachmann's Minnesota. But Texas lawmakers, including Perry, have concluded it's right for Texas: a public investment that will yield a long-term payoff for the state's well-being.

" Hey, What did I tell you about Obama imploding? " ....By Kevin McCullough

Hey, What did I tell you about Obama imploding?

by Kevin McCullough


Venturing into further historical territory, President Obama is flaming to year's end as fast as he possibly can. Record unemployment in 23 years, lying about Afghanistan to the American people & not being able to make up his mind, $13,000,000,000,000 (trillion) national debt, the Health Care debacle, stagnant legislative movement on cap & trade, Gitmo is still open, we're still in Iraq, Iran is brewing uranium to new levels... He confused getting the Olympics with a "state-level priority," and he won the Nobel (STOP LAUGHING) peace prize.

Oh yes, he also sided with dictators against democracy in Honduras.

He sided with Russia and against our ally in Poland.

And he's kicked Israel in the shins at every opportunity.

Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
** Obama to supporters: “I’m itching for a fight.”

Obama, a former ACORN trainer, told supporters yesterday ( Monday) that Americans don’t want his tax hikes – “We’re gonna have problems.”

Superman vs. Warm Body ~ A Must Read About Rick Perry!!!

Superman vs. Warm Body

By Thomas Sowell

One of the problems in trying to select a leader for any large organization or institution is the tendency to start out looking for Superman, passing up many good people who fail to meet that standard, and eventually ending up settling for a warm body.

Some Republicans seem to be longing for another Ronald Reagan. Good luck on that one, unless you are prepared to wait for several generations. Moreover, even Ronald Reagan himself did not always act like Ronald Reagan.

The current outbreak of "gotcha" attacks on Texas Governor Rick Perry show one of the other pitfalls for those who are trying to pick a national leader. The three big sound-bite issues used against him during the TV "debates" have involved Social Security, immigration and a vaccine against cervical cancer.

Where these three issues have been discussed at length, whether in a few media accounts or in Governor Perry's own more extended discussions in an interview on Sean Hannity's program, his position was far more reasonable than it appeared to be in either his opponents' sound bites or even in his own abbreviated accounts during the limited time available in the TV "debate" format.

On Social Security, Governor Perry was not only right to call it a "Ponzi scheme," but was also right to point out that this did not mean welshing on the government's obligation to continue paying retirees what they had been promised.

Even those of us who still disagree with particular decisions made by Governor Perry can see some of those decisions as simply the errors of a decent man who realized that he was faced not with a theory but with a situation.

For example, the ability to save young people from cervical cancer with a stroke of a pen was a temptation that any decent and humane individual would find hard to resist, even if Governor Perry himself now admits to second thoughts about how it was done.

Many of us can agree with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's contention that it should have been done differently. But it reflects no credit on her to have tried to scare people with claims about the dangers of vaccination. Such scares have already cost the lives of children who have died on both sides of the Atlantic from diseases that vaccination would have prevented.

The biggest mischaracterization of Governor Perry's position has been on immigration. The fact that he has more confidence in putting "boots on the ground" along the border, instead of relying on a fence that can be climbed over or tunneled under where there is no one around, is a logistical judgment, not a question of being against border control.

Texas Rangers have already been put along the border to guard the border where the federal government has failed to guard it. Former Senator Rick Santorum's sound-bite attempts to paint Governor Perry as soft on border control have apparently been politically successful, judging by polls. But his repeated interrupting of Perry's presentation of his case during the recent debate is the kind of cheap political trick that contributes nothing to public understanding and much to public misunderstanding.

Those of us who disagree with Governor Perry's decision to allow the children of illegal immigrants to attend the state colleges and universities, under the same terms as Texas citizens, need at least to understand what his options were. These were children who were here only because of their parents' decisions and who had graduated from a Texas high school.

Governor Perry saw the issue as whether these children should now be allowed to continue their education, and become self-supporting taxpayers, or whether Texas would be better off with a higher risk of those young people becoming dependents or worse. I still see Governor Perry's decision as an error, but the kind of error that a decent and humane individual would be tempted to make.

I have far more questions about those who would blow this error up into something that it is not. Error-free leaders don't exist — and we don't want to end up settling for a warm body.

Ultimately, this is not about Governor Perry. It is about a process that can destroy any potential leader, even when the country needs a new leader with a character that the "gotcha" attackers demonstrate they do not have.

U.S. "Hikers" Left Wing Activists Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer Released From Iranian Prison, Thank hikers thank Hugo Chavez, Noam Chomsky, Cindy Sheehan

U.S. "Hikers" Left Wing Activists Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer Released From Iranian Prison

"The only explanation for our prolonged detention is the 32 years of mutual hostility between American and Iran. The irony is Sarah Josh and I oppose U.S. policies towards Iran which perpetuate this hostility. We were convicted of espionage, because we are American," said Bauer. He continued, "It’s that simple. No evidence was ever presented against us. That it because there is no evidence and because we are completely innocent."

They also thanked their lawyer, Masoud Shafiee, and to world leaders and individuals instrumental to championing their cause, including His Majesty Sultan Qaboos of Oman, the Swiss Ambassador in Tehran, U.N. Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon, Iraqi President Jalal Talibani, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, the governments of Turkey and Brazil, actor Sean Penn, Muhammad Ali, singer Yusuf Islam, Cyndi Sheehan, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and the U.S. government officials who worked for their release.

Here is the article, I made my own title for this post as I feel it is much more fitting for these two jerks.

Lecturing Obama Loses Cool At Black Caucus Dinner; ‘Stop Complaining’ And March

Obama Loses Cool At Black Caucus Dinner; ‘Stop Complaining’ And March

Barack Obama speaking to the Congressional Black Caucus last night really displays why Barack Obama should not be President. He is his lecturing, scolding self in his remarks, telling the crowd “I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself,” and demanding from the, “I expect all of you to march with me and press on.” He then ordered them:

“Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complaining. Stop grumbling. Stop crying. We are going to press on. We’ve got work to do.”

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio Speaks About Immigrant Tuition

On immigrant tuition, Marco Rubio sounds like a Rick Perry man

The Miami Herald Blog

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, whom every presidential candidate would love to have as a running mate, sounds a lot like a Rick Perry supporter when it comes to the issue of tuition help for immigrants who grew up in the United States long after they were brought here illegally.

The issue flared up at the last presidential debate when Perry defended a bill he signed in Texas that gave in-state tuition rates to some illegal immigrants who graduated from Texas high schools. Perry was booed by the tea-party crowd.

Rubio, who hasn't and won't endorse in the race, might meet the same fate.

"I think there’s general consensus behind the idea that we need to do something to help out kids who were brought here by our parents longtime ago and who have grown up in this country," Rubio said a few weeks ago, echoing comments and sentiments he made on the campaign trail last year.

“I do think that we need to figure out how we accommodate kids who have something to contribute to our nation’s future. Whether it’s serving in the armed forces or going on to college and graduated who have basically lived most of their lives (here),” he said.

"I would say the vast majority of Americans would say that doesn’t feel right," to deport or deny education help to a person in a case where "you’re going to go to college and you’re a good student and you’re valedictorian of your school or you’re going to go into the military," Rubio said. "We’ve got to figure something out. And that’s what we’re in the process of trying to do."

When Rubio was the state Legislature he supported legislation similar to one that Perry has caught flak for.

“There was a Florida bill," Rubio said. "It was pretty limited to a number of people, you had to have a certain GPA. It was very limited in scope. I don’t know what the Texas bill was. I remember the one in Florida we did some work, but it was a limited bill and it was narrowly focused on a group of people, which is one of the issues happening with the Dream Act now -- that it’s not narrow.”

Texas Tech Plant Ecologist: La Niña One Major Cause for Texas Wildfires

A Texas Tech University plant ecologist said a natural weather event called La Niña has much of the blame for the recent rash of wildfires.

Written by John Davis

About 1.5 million acres of Texas has burned this year, and a Texas Tech University plant ecologist said a natural weather event called La Niña has much of the blame for the recent rash of wildfires.

Dylan Schwilk, an assistant professor in the Department of Biological Sciences, researches plants and fire. He’s studied the effects of wildfires in places such as the California, South Africa, Australia and Texas.

The current fire problem in West Texas is being fed by dormant, warm-season perennial grasses throughout the high and rolling plains area he said. Last year’s El Niño event helped these grasses grow thick. After going dormant for the winter, and because of this year’s La Niña drought, it’s left plentiful fuel lying on the ground.

“Here in West Texas, we get these powerful, low-humidity winds,” he said. “It’s amazing what fire will carry through out here. Even in heavily grazed areas, the winds lay fires flat. It’s very likely the relatively good rain we received last year contributed to higher fuel loads.”

Perry spokesman responds:

“Perry spokesman Ray Sullivan responded, “It’s outrageous President Obama would use the burning of 1,500 homes, the worst fires in state history, as a political attack.”

Herman Cain Wins Florida Straw Poll

“Thank you to the Republican voters for this incredible honor of being named the winner of the Presidency 5 straw poll in Florida today,” Mr. Cain said. “This is a sign of our growing momentum and my candidacy that cannot be ignored. I will continue to share my message of ‘common-sense solutions’ across this country and look forward to spending more time in Florida, a critical state for both the nomination and the general election.”


2,637 Ballots Cast

Herman Cain, 37.1%
Rick Perry, 15.4%
Mitt Romney, 14.0%
Rick Santorum, 10.9%
Ron Paul, 10.4%
Newt Gingrich, 8.4%
Jon Huntsman, 2.3%
Michele Bachmann, 1.5%

372 – Mitt Romney

289 – Rick Santorum

276 – Ron Paul

224 – Newt Gingrich

60 – Jon Huntsman

40 – Michele Bachmann



Matt Gaetz, member of the Florida House of Representatives and supporter of Rick Perry posted this on his twitter account approx. 2 hours before the results. This could explain why there was not just a Herman Cain win, but a wipe out. Keep in mind that he is a Perry supporter.

Obama Administration Set to Ban Asthma Inhalers Over Environmental Concerns

Obama Administration Set to Ban Asthma Inhalers Over Environmental Concerns

Weekly Standard

Remember how Obama recently waived new ozone regulations at the EPA because they were too costly? Well, it seems that the Obama administration would rather make people with Asthma cough up money than let them make a surely inconsequential contribution to depleting the ozone layer:

Asthma patients who rely on over-the-counter inhalers will need to switch to prescription-only alternatives as part of the federal government's latest attempt to protect the Earth's atmosphere.

The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday patients who use the epinephrine inhalers to treat mild asthma will need to switch by Dec. 31 to other types that do not contain chlorofluorocarbons, an aerosol substance once found in a variety of spray products.

The action is part of an agreement signed by the U.S. and other nations to stop using substances that deplete the ozone layer, a region in the atmosphere that helps block harmful ultraviolet rays from the Sun.

But the switch to a greener inhaler will cost consumers more. Epinephrine inhalers are available via online retailers for around $20, whereas the alternatives, which contain the drug albuterol, range from $30 to $60.

The Atlantic's Megan McArdle, an asthma sufferer, noted a while back that when consumers are forced to use environmentally friendly products they are almost always worse.

Mitt Romney Aide...Said In Cockiness: “It’s over. Perry is toast.”

Romney: Same Candidate, Different Positions


Romney addressed a gathering of GOP activists at this island resort several hours after Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has assumed Romney’s former role as a fragile front-runner for the GOP nomination, suggested in a speech to the same crowd that Romney was a slick campaigner who “blurs lines” between Romney’s position’s and Obama’s.

A Michigan native, Romney used his keynote address to look beyond the nomination fight and focus his venom on Obama. Emboldened by Perry’s poor debate performances and a weak third-place finish in a Florida straw poll Saturday, Romney advisers privately expressed renewed confidence in their strategy to keep the focus on the economy and the president.

One Romney aide, speaking on condition of anonymity, overstated Romney’s strength but underscored the team’s cockiness when he said, “It’s over. Perry is toast.”

Rick Perry Speech At Florida CPAC as He Gets Big Welcome From Florida Conservatives

Rick Perry gets big welcome from Florida conservatives

CBS News

ORLANDO, Fla. -- After putting in a disappointing debate performance the night before, Texas Gov. Rick Perry could take comfort on Friday in the ecstatic reception he got from a large crowd of conservatives meeting here to take a gander at the presidential field.

"As conservatives, we know that values and vision matter. It's not who's the slickest candidate or the smoothest debater that we need to elect," he told 500 attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference. "Remember President Clinton? Man, he could sell ice cubes to Eskimos and the next day be against ice cubes."

The remark was a dig at Romney, who struggled with a reputation as flip-flopper on issues during his 2008 presidential campaign. And it also served Perry's purpose of portraying himself as the regular Joe in the campaign, in contrast to the "slickest" candidate, Romney.

Romney, who spoke before Perry at the event, received a warm welcome. But the crowd stood and cheered as soon as Perry took the stage at the Orange County Convention Center. The Texas governor accentuated his usual anti-Washington stump speech with references to former President Ronald Reagan, a conservative icon. "We need to push through to that shining city on the hill," Perry said. "As President Reagan said, we need bold colors, not pale pastels."

He also opened a new line of attack against President Obama, blasting him for proposing to charge retired military veterans $200 a year to stay on the Tricare-for-Life that supplements Medicare coverage. "Our veterans have already sacrificed enough for this country," Perry said. "Leave them alone."

Perry delivered his dual criticism of Obama's health care law and the one that Romney passed in Massachusetts, which the crowd seemed to love. "The nanny state was not needed for our forefathers," he said. "The nanny state didn't groom our greatest generation, my father's generation, who freed millions of people from oppression during World War II. The nanny state didn't inspire innovation and technology, the creation of wealth of the entrepreneurial spirit."

He brought the crowd to its feet again at the end of his speech, with, "If we want America working again, we need Washington to get out of the way."


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

I know over at Facebook there is a lot of pushing for Romney and attacking Perry. I REALLY do not like Romney--and when it comes to "Rinoism", he has Perry beat by a mile. And I fear that if Romney is the candidate, a whole lot of conservatives will not vote. And that will be--as we found out in 1986 and 2008--disastrous.

Perry is my choice, even after the last debate. He is for state's rights, and against the federal government in your life. I love that he says he will make the government as inconsequential to our lives as he possibly can. He hates Obamacare, is pro life and the list goes on and on.

I agree with what Mark said about the debate....."after last night Perry looked stiff and uncomfortable.". He is right, one could see it and feel it.

For some reason Perry is awesome with speeches, sincere, even intense at getting his point across, one can feel his passion. But in debates so far he freezes up, seems very uncomfortable.

In person people really like him and that is what comes across in his speeches too. He needs to bring that same thing to the debates somehow. Not so much for me, I have decided for me it is Perry, but for so many others that are still deciding.

“Our country’s in trouble, I think even those on the left understand that. I will go to that Oval Office every morning and try to make Washington as inconsequential as I can in your lives. I know it’s time for a change in this country. There is nothing ailing America that can’t be cured with the rebirth of freedom.” - Rick Perry

George Soros Funds Texans for Public Justice A Left Wing Attack Group ~ Republicans Be Aware Of Attacks On Perry As Many Come From This Source

Who is really leveling “cronyism” charges at Perry?

Washington Post

In a post today entitled “Perry’s system of patronage and cronyism,” Jennifer Rubin highlights a scathing report by Texans for Public Justice entitled “Crony Capitalism: The Republican Governors Association in the Perry Years.”

But there is another report by Texans for Public Justice that is equally disturbing. It is called “The Governor’s Gusher,” and it documents 100 wealthy donors who “have sought corporate welfare, relaxed regulatory rules or other government favors” in exchange for their political largess in Texas gubernatorial races.

Texans for Public Justice dubs these individuals the “Profiteers” and notes that “The ranks of the … Profiteers include corporate welfare kings, snake oil salesmen, money launderers, tax evaders, tort dodgers, tobacco hacks and toxic waste dumpers.” According to TPJ director Craig McDonald, “A disturbing number of these profiteers made a fortune off government handouts or by bending or breaking regulatory rules.”

The report was published more than a decade ago, on Jan. 20, 2000.

It’s target? Another Texas governor, George W. Bush, who had just launched a campaign for --you guessed it -- President of the United States.

There’s more. Bush and Perry are not the only Texas conservatives seeking higher office who have been charged with “crony capitalism” by Texans for Public Justice. TPJ also leveled similar charges against John Cornyn in January 2002, while Cornyn was serving as Texas attorney general preparing a campaign for United States Senate.

See a pattern here?

Far from a “good government foundation,” Texans for Public Justice is a left-wing attack group that seems to issue scathing “crony capitalism” attacks on Texas conservatives just as they prepare to run for national office. It has received funding from George Soros and other left-leaning foundations, as well as an undisclosed list of what the groups leader, Craig McDonald, vaguely calls “some wealthy liberal individuals, including trial lawyers.” McDonald made his political biases quite clear in a recent piece for the New York Times last month, where he criticized Perry’s “embrace of the Christian right and his positions on marriage, abortion, education, environmental protection and health care” and wrote:

Perry’s boots, twang and swagger are triggering flashbacks among swing voters still smarting from the last cowboy presidency. But don’t equate Perry and George W. Bush. Texas clones cows — not cowboys. When Perry took the reins from Bush in 2000, he pulled Texas even farther right…. Meet Rick Perry: the guy who’ll make you miss George Bush.

Texans for Public Justice ‘s opposition to Gov. Perry may have less to do with its concerns about “crony capitalism” than Perry’s conservative agenda. One area where TPJ seems particularly unhappy with Perry is his successful passage of “loser pays” lawsuit reform in Texas. TPJ has been an intractable opponent of tort reform in Texas. Indeed, a pro-tort reform coalition called Texans for Lawsuit Reform recently turned the tables on Texans for Public Justice and issued a scathing report of its own on the group’s political biases and its failure to disclose many of its funders.

They found:

TPJ is nothing that it claims to be. It is not Texan. Nothing about it is public. And, it is definitely not interested in justice… TPJ first appeared in Texas in 1997, when veteran operatives of leftist, out-of-state organizations – such as Ralph Nader’s Public Citizen – came to this state to set up the organization. The TPJ version of justice is one-sided. Since its inception, TPJ – preying on the good intentions of media outlets across Texas and this nation – has used an array of slanted, self-published reports to criticize a select segment of this state’s political spectrum. The targets of TPJ’s attacks are almost exclusively Republicans, business leaders and organizations, and those interested in the reform of Texas’ civil justice system.

There may or may not be something to the “crony capitalism” charges against Rick Perry. No doubt we will find out more as the presidential campaign unfolds. But conservatives should pause before taking the word of a secretive, left-wing, Soros-funded organization that has spent the last 15 years attacking conservative politicians who work to rein in trial lawyers and institute pro-business reforms.


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

You might want to know about this. There are some Republicans that are using sources from this group for information without knowing that Soros is behind it. They get their articles out into the main media and then republicans quote them. They are out to take Perry down, and one of the reasons is because many of them are lawyers and they despise Perry for his stand on frivilous lawsuits from lawyers etc.

Gov. Rick Perry's New Ad ~ Proven Leadership

Gov. Rick Perry is the only Texas governor since WWII to cut general revenue spending. He signed historic tax cuts and some of the strongest lawsuit reforms in the country. Since June ‘09, more than 40 percent of all net new jobs in America have been created in Texas… No wonder the media wants to knock him out of the race!

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) says Rick Perry is right on Social Security – It IS a Ponzi scheme.

The Hill

The Republican chairman of the House Budget Committee on Tuesday drew fire from Democrats for backing Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s description of Social Security as a “Ponzi scheme.”

Social Security fits the technical definition of a Ponzi scheme, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told conservative Laura Ingraham on her radio show.

“It’s not a criminal enterprise, but it’s a pay-as-you-go system, where earlier investors — or say, taxpayers — get a positive rate of return, and the most recent investors — or taxpayers — get a negative rate of return,” he said. “That is how those schemes work.”

Perry’s description of the Social Security as a “Ponzi sceheme” has been attacked by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Perry’s leading challenger for the GOP presidential nomination. Romney criticized Perry for scaring seniors and wanting to abolish the program, warning that the Republican nominee needs to work to reform the program.

“They’re both right,” Ryan said of Perry and Romney. “[Social Security] is not working, it is going bankrupt, and current seniors will be jeopardized the most by the status quo.”

Ron Paul Says He'd Consider Putting Dennis Kucinich in His Cabinet

Ron Paul says he'd consider putting Dennis Kucinich in his Cabinet

The Hill

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) says he would consider putting the liberal congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) in his Cabinet if he wins the presidency in 2012.

Paul said his libertarian political philosophy helps him connect with some on the far left — including Kucinich, who shares Paul’s general anti-war stance.

Paul joked that if he brought the Ohio congressman aboard in his administration, he might have to create a "Department of Peace."

"You've got to give credit to people who think," he said.

"Being pragmatic is about forming coalitions," Paul said at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor. "I probably work with coalitions better than the other candidates. I don't think I've said anything negative here about the president."

Paul’s bid for the GOP nomination has yet to catch fire, though he enjoys perhaps the most passionate following in all of politics. He has had difficulty elevating himself to the top tier of candidates and complained that the media is not taking his campaign seriously.

But the congressman said he’s playing the long game, and values bringing political change over winning the presidency.

"Politics doesn't drive me as much as economic policy," Paul said. "We're in a big mess, personal liberty is under attack."

Paul said his presidential campaign is more about an "educational effort" of libertarian philosophies than a reflection of his personal ambition.

"There are a lot of people who just don't want to hear this," Paul said. "Very few people understand this, they don't have an understanding of how free markets work."

The congressman said the fact that other Republican candidates are talking about the Federal Reserve or rolling back entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare are victories for his campaign. Paul also says his campaign — coupled with a financial crisis that has brought into question the stability of the American economic system — is changing the prevailing attitudes of voters.

"It requires a lot more education and a lot more inroads," Paul said. "But absolutely, I think the whole country has come this way."

And yet Paul continues to struggle in the polls, hovering around 9 to 10 percent of Republican primary voters. While his showing is consistently better than some candidates who have garnered more attention, he is unsure of how he will propel himself to the top of the field.

"The supporters believe it's possible, I don't know," Paul said. "There's no reason to rule out the fact this can explode. Something has to give here."

Paul attributed some of the problem to the media, arguing that significant campaign milestones and rallies were underreported. And he acknowledged that as a candidate, he is responsible for delivering his message in a way that voters can appreciate.

"It partially is my fault, and I think that's what I work on most, refining my message," Paul said.

But Paul rejected the idea that he should adopt a more pragmatic or conciliatory strategy that would enable him to either grow his base among those skeptical of some of his views — particularly in terms of non-interventionist foreign policy — or achieve smaller pieces of his domestic policy goals legislatively.

"If you give up your principles, you're not being very pragmatic," Paul said.

Obama's Fast and Furious Program Linked To 200 Murders In Mexico and 11 Crimes In USA Including 1 Murder Of US Border Agent

Obama's Fast and Furious Program is linked to 200 murders in Mexico. And the program is linked to at least 11 crimes here in the United States including the murder of US border agent Brian Terry.


In a conference call this morning with Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa, reporters were told the Attorney General in Mexico has confirmed at least 200 murders south of the border happened as a result of Operation Fast and Furious. Eleven crimes in the United States have been linked to Operation Fast and Furious up to this point. Issa said he expects as the investigation in the operation continues, more crimes connected to Fast and Furious will come to light and be exposed. This is not surprising, considering out of 2500 weapons the Obama Justice Department allowed to “walk,” and that only 600 have been recovered, the rest are lost until they show up at violent crime scenes. The damage from Operation Fast and Furious has only started to be seen. Remember, the Mexican Government and ATF agents working in Mexico were left completely in the dark about the operation.

Since this scandal came to light in March 2011, the Obama Justice Department has continually stonewalled the investigation from the House Oversight Committee, and not much has changed. Issa said there is an ongoing cover-up of a pattern of ongoing mistakes and that the Justice Department continues to use petty prosecutions to limit information given to the Oversight Committee.

“People are picking their words very carefully," Issa said.

When asked what the consequences would be for DOJ or ATF officials involved in the operation, Issa said prosecutions may come at the end of this scandal to those who knowingly trafficked weapons across the border and could be held accountable for the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

“This was dumb, it was useless and it was lethal,” Issa said.

Obama's White House Pressure Four Star General William Shelton of Air Force Space Command To Favor LightSquared

Sean Hannity talked about LightSquared & developments in recent News regarding the National WiFi Broadband Network due to launch.

LightSquared plans to offer wholesale national mobile LTE broadband WiFi for companies such as VoX Communications among others. They await FCC approval for use of their network which also prevents companies like VoX Communications from running on their Network.

White House Pressure for a Donor?

The Daily Beast

The Pentagon has worried for months that a project backed by a prominent Democratic donor might interfere with military GPS. Now Congress wants to know if the White House pressured a general to change his testimony.

The four-star Air Force general who oversees Air Force Space Command walked into a highly secured room on Capitol Hill a week ago to give a classified briefing to lawmakers and staff, and dropped a surprise. Pressed by members, Gen. William Shelton said the White House tried to pressure him to change his testimony to make it more favorable to a company tied to a large Democratic donor.

The episode —confirmed by The Daily Beast in interviews with administration officials and the chairman of a congressional oversight committee —is the latest in a string of incidents that have given Republicans sudden fodder for questions about whether the Obama administration is politically interfering in routine government matters that affect donors or fundraisers. Already, the FBI and a House committee are investigating a federal loan guarantee to a now failed solar firm called Solyndra that is tied to a large Obama fundraiser.

Now the Pentagon has been raising concerns about a new wireless project by a satellite broadband company in Virginia called LightSquared, whose majority owner is an investment fund run by Democratic donor Philip Falcone.

According to officials familiar with the situation, Shelton’s prepared testimony was leaked in advance to the company. And the White House asked the general to alter the testimony to add two points: that the general supported the White House policy to add more broadband for commercial use; and that the Pentagon would try to resolve the questions around LightSquared with testing in just 90 days. Shelton chafed at the intervention, which seemed to soften the Pentagon’s position and might be viewed as helping the company as it tries to get the project launched, officials said.

“There was an attempt to influence the text of the testimony and to engage LightSquared in the process in order to bias his testimony,” Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) said in an interview. “The only people who were involved in the process in preparation for the hearing included the Department of Defense, the White House, and the Office Management and Budget.”

Turner is chairman of the House Armed Services subcommittee that oversees Shelton’s space command and GPS issues; the panel explored the issues between LightSquared and the Pentagon at a hearing Thursday.

GREAT Speech By Gov. Rick Perry: Obama’s Middle East Policy Is Naive, Arrogant, Misguided and Dangerous

We are indignant that certain Middle Eastern leaders have discarded the principle of direct negotiations," he said. "We are equally indignant of the Obama administration and their Middle East policy of appeasement."

Perry called on the U.S. to approach the Middle East with a "new firmness and a new resolve." Perry criticized Obama for demanding concessions from the Jewish state that Perry says emboldened the Palestinians to seek recognition by the U.N.

"We would not be here today ... if the Obama policy in the Middle East wasn't naive and arrogant, misguided and dangerous," he said.

Perry said the U.S. -- to show there are "consequences" for the action at the U.N. -- should reconsider its aid to the Palestinians and shut down the Palestinian Liberation Organization's Washington office if the vote proceeds. He also expressed support for continued settlement construction and suggested the U.S. Embassy be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as a nod of support for a united Jerusalem under Israeli rule.

He continued: “The Obama policy of moral equivalency, which gives equal standing to the grievances of Israelis and Palestinians, including the orchestrators of terrorism, is a very dangerous insult.”

Perry accused the Obama administration of encouraging the Palestinians to abandon direct talks with Israel, in a “policy of appeasement.”

"There is no middle ground between our allies and those who seek their destruction"

Ghastly New 'Fees' Found in Obama Tax Plan

Ghastly New 'Fees' Found in Obama Tax Plan

FOX News


It's not just millionaires who'd pay more under President Barack Obama's latest plan to combat the deficit.

Air travelers, federal workers, military retirees, wealthier Medicare beneficiaries and people taking out new mortgages are among those who would pay more than $130 billion in government revenues raised through new or increased fees.

Airline passengers would see their federal security fees double from $5 to $10 for a nonstop round-trip flight and triple to $15 by 2017, raising $25 billion over the coming decade. Federal workers would face an additional 1.2 percentage point deduction from their paychecks to contribute $21 billion more for their pensions over the same period. Military retirees would pay a $200 fee upon turning 65 to have the government pay their out-of-pocket Medicare expenses. They'd also pay more for non-generic prescription drugs.

And it'll cost corporate jet owners a new $100 fee for each flight.

Democrat Sleaze and Tax Cheat Charlie Rangel Stalks Gov. Rick Perry In N.Y., Then Invites Himself To Gathering, Then Bashes Perry Afterward

Democrat Charlie Rangel crashed Rick Perry at an event in New York City yesterday.

The Texas governor was asked to speak by local business owners. Rangel poked his head in to find out who was there.

Rangel invited himself to the event and then released a statement attacking the successful governor.


Gov. Rick Perry’s meeting Monday in New York with Hispanic business leaders had an unexpected guest in attendance: Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel, who represents the district where the meeting took place.

Rangel said he was simply doing the neighborly thing by welcoming the Republican presidential candidate to his locality. But a statement released by Rangel on Monday night did away with bipartisan pleasantries after the first sentence.

“As a courtesy, I stopped by Inwood to welcome Governor Rick Perry to the most beautiful congressional district in our nation,” Rangel said. “However, the Governor’s visit ironically came on the very same day that my constituents heard President Obama’s speech earlier today on getting America back to work. The President has made it clear that he would veto any bill that would change benefits for those who rely on Medicare but does not raise serious revenues by asking millionaires and billionaires or biggest corporations to pay their fair share.”

Rangel went on to slam the Texas governor for his record on the death penalty and for recent remarks Perry made on Social Security…

…The meeting, in upper Manhattan, took place at Papasito Mexican Grill and Agave Bar. Perry was invited to speak by a stockbroker who owns taxi companies and a construction company.

Rangel is truly a horrible person and stupid as well. Remember how he said that "All we have to do is TAX more".

Military Groups Upset With BIG Tax Dictator Obama Plan To Raise Co-pays

VIDEO is From LAST Month........."We will not balance the budget on the backs of our veterans":

H/T The Obama Report

Addressing the American Legion's Annual National Convention in Minneapolis last month, President Obama pledged that he would not balance the federal budget on the backs of military veterans:

The bond between our forces and our citizens must be a sacred trust. And for me and my administration, upholding that trust is not just a matter of policy, it is not about politics. It is a moral obligation.

As a nation, we are facing some tough choices as we put our fiscal house in order. But I want to be absolutely clear. We cannot, we must not, we will not balance the budget on the backs of our veterans. As Commander-in-Chief, I won’t allow it.

But, apparently, the President didn't really mean what he said; he was only kidding.

From the USA Today:

Military groups slam Obama plan to raise co-pays

President Obama would raise pharmacy co-pays for military families and hike medical coverage fees for military retirees as part of his debt-reduction plan unveiled Monday.

"We are all in this together, and all of us must contribute to getting our economy moving again and on a firm fiscal footing," President Obama said in a statement regarding his latest economic plans.

Service groups representing millions of veterans moved quickly to criticize the proposals. Peter Gaytan, executive director of the American Legion, which has 2.4million veterans as members, said his organization opposes any hikes without offsetting cost-of-living increases in pensions.

Veterans of Foreign Wars, with 1.5million members, and the Military Officers Association of America, also oppose the changes.

The Obama plan would introduce a $200 annual fee for retired military families who wish to continue with Tricare-for-Life program that supplements Medicare for retirees over 65...

The administration also wants to encourage military families and retirees to use less expensive options when buying prescriptions under current coverage. The deficit plan would eliminate co-pays for generic mail-order drugs, while instituting a percentage co-pay rather than a small flat fee for drug store purchases...

On a subject that has upset military careerists, the administration is looking to save money by revamping the Defense Department pension plan. Obama calls for a commission to produce changes to the current system.

The Pentagon would then modify as it sees fit and — just as previous administrations dealt with the controversial issue of base closures — the retirement reforms would have to be accepted without changes for approval by Congress.

Fmr. Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Dan Gillerman Responds To Terrorist Palestinian Pres.Abbas’s Request for Palestine to Be Recognized as Formal State

Fmr. Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Responds to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s Request for Palestine to Be Recognized as Formal State

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas plans to go before the U.N. and ask for formal recognition as a state. This request creates complications for the United States as it tries to mitigate the contentious relationship between Palestine and Israel.

Former Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Dan Gillerman predicts this request will accomplish nothing productive and instead hopes for negotiations to begin that would outline a compromise on behalf of Palestine and Israel. Gillerman spoke with Megyn Kelly about the implications of this request on President Obama, and the effects it will have on all parties sitting on the U.N. Security Council, and possibly the General Assembly.

Obama to Pitch Higher Taxes and Means-Testing Medicare

Obama to Pitch Higher Taxes and Means-Testing Medicare

ABC News

Obama on Monday will outline more than $2 trillion in new deficit reduction over the next decade, senior administration officials tell ABC News, including $1.5 trillion in new taxes and means-testing Medicare for wealthy recipients — both in higher fees and benefit cuts for top income brackets.

Combined with savings from the debt deal and drawing down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the proposal will guarantee that the size of the debt — as a share of the economy and percentage of GDP — will fall, with more than $4 trillion in deficit reduction total.

The president’s purpose in laying out this detailed plan is to avoid the criticisms that have dogged him throughout this year for not putting out a more assertive deficit reduction plan, and to further illustrate his “balanced approach,” requiring “shared sacrifice.”

A senior administration official described the president’s proposal as having “very tough policies in it, and we know that that’s going to be something that our friends and our opponents alike are going to notice. But there is no way to get this job done without making tough decisions, and this is putting forward a plan that does it in a fair and a balanced way.”

The president will propose roughly $580 billion in cuts to mandatory spending programs, including $248 billion from Medicare and $72 billion from Medicaid and other health programs.

Part of this will include asking wealthier seniors who receive Medicare to pay higher premiums and accept fewer benefits — means-testing the program.

But that said, the president will not accept any cuts to Medicare if tax increases on wealthier income brackets and corporations are not part of the final package.

“He will say that he will veto any bill that takes one dime from the Medicare benefits seniors rely on without asking the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations to pay their fair share,” a senior administration official said.

Obama’s remarks will push the so-called “super-committee” charged with finding at least $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction by November to undertake comprehensive tax reform guided by five principles: lowering tax rates; eliminating wasteful loopholes and tax breaks; reducing the deficit by $1.5 trillion; boosting job creation and growth; and being consistent with the “Buffett Rule.”

Wild Thing's commenrt..........

While the Dems are accusing Republicans of "dismantling" social security and Medicare, the Dems are the ones who are actually doing it. In the Obamacare law there are some provisions of severe cuts in Medicare also.

2012 cannot come soon enough. We’ve got to get these incompetent maggots out of the government and get the adults back in there.

The man really has lost it. The House won’t give him new taxes, half his party in the Senate won’t give him more taxes, and the majority of the American people have told him they don’t want more taxes, and his solution is...?

More Taxes.

Democrats To Obama,You Have To Wait But We Will Place Your Massive Bill On Calender For October

Obama: Pass This Bill Right Away! — Durbin: We Will Get Around To It Some Time In October

Durbin: Senate likely won’t act on Obama’s jobs bill until Oct.

The Hill

The Senate likely will not take up President Obama’s plan to create jobs until next month following a planned recess period, the No. 2 Democrat in the chamber said Sunday.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said the Senate would focus on a number of “related issues” to the $400 billion job-creation legislation this week. But he quickly noted on CNN that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has placed the massive jobs bill “on the calendar.”

The Senate is slated to be in recess Sept. 26-30, returning for legislative business on Oct. 3.

Some debate on the measure could begin “this week,” Durbin said. The legislation “is ready,” he said, “and poised.”

“But it’s more realistic it’d be next month,” Durbin said.

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

So… the urgency that Obama gave this issue – he promised he’d be all over it when he returned from vacation at Martha’s Vineyard – has given way to a Senatorial yawn? It appears that, despite having pounded the podium and shouted for immediate passage, he hasn’t even gotten his own party members on board for hasty consideration. What happened to “If you love me, you’ll help me get this bill passed!”?

Rick Perry To Hold Pro-Israel Press Conference This Week

Perry To Hold Pro-Israel Press Conference This Week

The Jerusalem Post

Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry will hold a press conference with American and Israeli-Jewish leaders in New York on Tuesday in which he is expected to address the upcoming deliberations at the United Nations, MK Danny Danon (Likud), said on Saturday night.

Danon, who will participate at the press conference, said he would ask Perry ahead of the conference to adopt the initiative the MK is advancing to annex Judea and Samaria in response to the unilateral Palestinian moves at the UN.

On Friday, Perry accused US President Barack Obama of distancing himself from Israel and blamed US foreign policy “errors” for the Palestinian push for statehood at the United Nations.
Perry said Palestinian leaders believe US-Israeli relations have weakened and said “the ultimate Palestinian solution” remains the destruction of the Jewish state.

“Errors by the Obama administration have encouraged the Palestinians,” the Texas governor wrote in a Wall Street Journal column.

“It was a mistake to agree to the Palestinians’ demand for indirect negotiations conducted through the US, and it was an even greater mistake for President Obama to distance himself from Israel and seek engagement with the hostile regimes in Syria and Iran,” he wrote.

Gov. Rick Perry And His State of the State Address From February 8th Of This Year ~ A Must See Video!!!!

2/8/2011 - AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry delivered his State of the State address today, proposing to consolidate or suspend non-critical state agencies in order to make state government more streamlined and efficient. The governor also outlined his priorities for the 82nd Legislative Session, including balancing the budget without raising taxes, preserving essential services, and strengthening Texas' position as a national economic leader through sound policies.

"As leaders, we must continue to be fiscally responsible with taxpayer dollars and truly reform our approach to governance," Gov. Perry said. "Our discussions about streamlining state government must be followed by a willingness to act, including consolidating or suspending non-mission-critical entities until the economy improves."


Wild Thing's comment......

If I was rich I would pay people to watch thie video. This is a good example of more about who Perry is and what makes him who and what he is as a person and a leader, husband and Gov.

If you want to know what Perry believes in, his outlook for business, his goals etc. this is the video. I am so impressed to hear this speech he gave. This would also be a great video to share with others that are making serious thoughts on who to vote for in the next election.

He covers so many topics in this speech I could not list them all. I promise you it is well wortth the time to watch it.

What a difference in this speech and the anti-American and anti-business speeches we have heard from Obama.

One could take this video and think how Perry would speak as a President, where instead of speaking about his State of Texas it would be about the entire USA.

Anita Perry Defends Husband's Stance on Social Security

Anita Perry, wife of GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry, defended her husband while speaking at the Pinellas County Reagan Day Dinner Saturday night.

Anita Perry defends husband's stance on Social Security

Tampa Bay Onlilne

In a speech to a Republican group in St. Petersburg Saturday, Anita Perry, wife of GOP presidential frontrunner Rick Perry, defended her husband's stance on Social Security – an area where Mitt Romney has accused him of backing off controversial former comments.

"He does not back down in the face of criticism. He rejects weathervane politics … When he stakes his ground, he holds it," including on Social Security, she said.

Perry delivered a humorous, folksy speech to about 450 Republicans at a fundraising dinner for the Pinellas County Republican Party, including descriptions of the small Texas towns where they both grew up.

"There were 13 people in his graduating class" in high school, she said of her husband growing up in Paint Creek. "He was the highest-ranking boy."

In his book Fed Up, and elsewhere, Perry called the popular program "a Ponzi scheme" and questioned its constitutionality, saying the federal government should be running a pension programs and suggesting it should be left to the states.

Without retracting those comments, Perry now says only that the program needs to be reformed.

"I've known him since I was 6 years old," Anita Perry said.

"He has not backed down an inch from saying Social Security's financing is broken. It must be reformed," she said.

Earlier in the day, Anita Perry attended a gathering of Republicans, including delegates to next weekend's Presidency 5 state Republican Party convention and straw poll, at Ron's Barbecue in Hudson.

All of the presidential candidates will attend the event, but Perry appears to be working hardest at recruiting delegates for the straw poll, which could have a significant effect on the race.

One delegate and Perry backer at the event, Rachel O'Connor of Wesley Chapel, a candidate for county commissioner in Pasco's District 1, said she believes Perry is leading among Pasco's delegates, but added, "I think a lot of them are undecided and waiting to see them in person in Orlando."

County party official Bill Bunting, also for Perry, gave a more optimistic estimate, saying he thinks half of Pasco's 86 delegates are for Perry.

Gov. Rick Perry: Government Must Help Returning Combat Veterans

Texas Gov. Rick Perry yesterday was the keynote speaker at the annual gala for the Lone Survivor Foundation, created by a Navy SEAL honored for surviving one of the worst single-day losses of life in Navy SEAL history.
The Lone Survivor Foundation provides therapeutic and other support to wounded American combat veterans and their families.
It was founded by Marcus Luttrell, who was awarded the Navy Cross for combat heroism. He is the lone SEAL team member to survive a June 2005 firefight with the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Perry: Government must help returning combat veterans

WFAA Dallas/Fort Worth

Almost all American combat veterans "come home bearing scars" and the government has a role to play in helping them heal, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Saturday night.

Perry spoke during the second annual gala for the Lone Survivor Foundation, which provides therapeutic and other support to wounded American combat veterans and their families.

Perry, the frontrunner in most polls sizing up the field vying for the Republican presidential nomination, believes in making government as inconsequential as possible in peoples' lives. But he said of returning veterans:

"We must take care of them, every last one of them" and use whatever resources are necessary.

The governor said the state should help connect military veterans with employers and assist them in cutting through red tape with the Veterans Affairs Administration and other support networks. He added that there's no state better than Texas for helping returning veterans rejoin the U.S. workforce. He said 40,000 have gone back to work in Texas this year alone.

"Always bragging about Texas," he quipped, straying briefly off-script.

The Lone Survivor Foundation was created by Marcus Luttrell, who was honored for surviving one of the worst single-day losses of life in Navy SEAL history. A native of Huntsville, Luttrell was awarded the Navy Cross for combat heroism as the lone SEAL team member to survive that June 2005 firefight with the Taliban in Afghanistan. He detailed the experience in his best-selling 2007 book, "Lone Survivor."

Addressing a sympathetic crowd that gave him a standing ovation even before he began speaking, Perry called being in the military the highest possible public service and said, "the United States has no match on the battlefield."

He thanked a SEAL team for killing Osama Bin Laden and recalled a helicopter crash in Afghanistan last month that killed 22 members of another SEAL team as they rushed aid to troops in a firefight.

"Americans always face these challenges. We face them head on and they don't stop us because that's part of our national character," Perry said.

Luttrell said the governor agreed to address the gala long before he entered the presidential race — but still kept his promise to show up.

"He's like a father to me," Luttrell said. Perry said the pair didn't always agree, but joked "I am always right."

Gossip Monger Or Liar Have Your Pick, Michele Bachmann Goes On Jay Leno To Push Her Unfounded LIE


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

This sicko was on Jay Leno last night. Sorry but she has crossed the line and keeps crossing it.

Bachmann is a real piece of work!!! SCUM! What you are seeing is a woman that either makes things up or IF she was told what she said from 'some woman about her child".....Michele does not check it out, does not BOTHER to get a name. Michele is thus into passing on gossip. If that is not the case then Michele Bachmann is a freaking LIAR! Are you listening Bachmann you are a disgrace!!!!!!!!!!

The thing is it is not about who she is attacking, this goes way beyond that. It is about what she is doing, how she is doing it and that she will not stop. NO facts, only gossip and or lies. She disgusting!!!

She is hurting our party by doing this. Conservatives/ Republicans are supposed to be better then lies and pushing gossip like this. That is what the left does.

Neil Cavuto, Hannity and others and now Jay Leno have all asked her about this mysterious woman that she talked to after the debate. Each person that has asked her never gets a good answer and they all give the same look, like what is going on here. Bachmann is not stupid and she has to know that ( IF) then the woman spoke to her to at least get her name for referrence later. Bachmann has to realize this is not some accusation to just throw around without being able to back it up. Because of all of these things I can only think it is a lie or half truth at least and she needs to either admit it or move on and stop discussing it and let it die out. She has done the damage but not to Perry she has done it to herself.

I feel badly about it because I have posted in the past of the many wonderful things she has done and this is so stupid on her part to do this now just to try and take down the candidate at the top.

Reno Air Show Plane Crash Airplane Crashes Into Stands At National Championship

Plane Crashes Into Crowd at Nevada Air Race, Killing 3, Injuring More Than 50

FOX News

RENO, Nev. — An airplane crashed Friday into a crowd attending an air race here, injuring dozens in what one event official described as a “mass-casualty situation.”

A medical official later said more than 75 people had been injured, including 25 critically. There was no official word on deaths, though one report put the toll as high as 12 and the crash near the grandstands left a horrific scene of bodies and wreckage.

A World War II-era fighter plane flown by a veteran Hollywood stunt pilot plunged Friday into the edge of the grandstands during a popular air race, killing three people, injuring more than 50 spectators and creating a horrific scene strewn with smoking debris.

The plane, piloted by 74-year-old Jimmy Leeward, spiraled out of control without warning and appeared to disintegrate upon impact. Bloodied bodies were spread across the area as people tended to the victims and ambulances rushed to the scene.

Authorities were investigating the cause, but an official with the event said there were indications that mechanical problems were to blame.

Maureen Higgins of Alabama, who has been coming to the air races for 16 years, said the pilot was on his third lap when he lost control.

She was sitting about 30 yards away from the crash and watched in horror as the man in front of her started bleeding after debris hit him in the head.

"I saw body parts and gore like you wouldn't believe it. I'm talking an arm, a leg," Higgins said "The alive people were missing body parts. I am not kidding you. It was gore. Unbelievable gore."

Among the dead was Leeward, of Ocala, Fla., a veteran airman and movie stunt pilot who named his P-51 Mustang fighter plane the "Galloping Ghost," according to Mike Houghton, president and CEO of Reno Air Races. Officials earlier said Leeward was 80.

Renown Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Kathy Carter confirmed that two others died, but did not provide their identities.

Stephanie Kruse, a spokeswoman for the Regional Emergency Medical Service Authority, told The Associated Press that emergency crews took a total of 56 injury victims to three hospitals. She said they also observed a number of people being transported by private vehicle, which they are not including in their count.

Kruse said of the total 56, at the time of transport, 15 were considered in critical condition, 13 were serious condition with potentially life-threatening injuries and 28 were non-serious or non-life threatening.

"This is a very large incident, probably one of the largest this community has seen in decades," Kruse told The Associated Press. "The community is pulling together to try to deal with the scope of it. The hospitals have certainly geared up and staffed up to deal with it."

The P-51 Mustang, a class of fighter plane that can fly at speeds in excess of 500 mph, crashed into a box-seat area in front of the grandstand at about 4:30 p.m., race spokesman Mike Draper said. Houghton said Leeward appeared to have "lost control of the aircraft," though details on why that happened weren't immediately known.

Houghton said at a news conference hours after the crash that there appeared to be a "problem with the aircraft that caused it to go out of control." He did not elaborate.

He said the rest of the races have been canceled as the NTSB investigates.

KRNV-TV weatherman Jeff Martinez, who was just outside the air race grounds at the time, said the plane veered to the right and then "it just augered straight into the ground."

"You saw pieces and parts going everywhere," he said. "Everyone is in disbelief."

Tim Linville, 48, of Reno, said the pilot appeared to lose partial control off the plane when he veered off course and flew over the bleachers near where Linville was standing with his two daughters.

"I told the girls to run and the pilot pulled the plane straight up, but he couldn't do anything else with it," Linville told the AP. "That's when it nosedived right into the box seats."

Linville said after the plane went straight up, it barrel rolled and inverted downward, crashing into an area where at least 20 people were sitting.

"If he wouldn't have pulled up, he would have taken out the entire bleacher section," and hurt thousands of people, Linville said.

Linville said the plane smashed into the ground and shattered like an enormous water balloon, sending shrapnel and debris into the crowd.

"It was just flying everywhere," he said.

Leeward, the owner of the Leeward Air Ranch Racing Team, was a well-known racing pilot. His website says he has flown more than 120 races and served as a stunt pilot for numerous movies, including "Amelia" and "Cloud Dancer."

In an interview with the Ocala (Fla.) Star-Banner last year, he described how he has flown 250 types of planes and has a particular fondness for the P-51, which came into the war relatively late and was used as a long-range bomber escort over Europe. Among the famous pilots of the hot new fighter was WWII double ace Chuck Yeager.

"They're more fun. More speed, more challenge. Speed, speed and more speed," Leeward said.

Leeward talked about racing strategy in an interview Thursday with LiveAirShow TV while standing in front of his plane.

"Right now I think we've calculated out, we're as fast as anybody in the field, or maybe even a little faster," he said. "But uh, to start with, we didn't really want to show our hand until about Saturday or Sunday. We've been playing poker since last Monday. And uh so, it's ready, we're ready to show a couple more cards, so we'll see on Friday what happens, and on Saturday we'll probably go ahead and play our third ace, and on Sunday we'll do our fourth ace."

Houghton described Leeward as "a good friend."

"Everybody knows him. It's a tight-knit family. He's been here for a long, long time," Houghton said.

He also described Leeward as a "very qualified, very experienced pilot" and that he was in good medical condition. He also suggested Leeward would have made every effort to avoid casualties on the ground if he knew he was going to crash.

"If it was in Jimmy's power, he would have done everything he possibly could," Houghton said.

The National Championship Air Races draws thousands of people to Reno every year in September to watch various military and civilian planes race. They also have attracted scrutiny in the past over safety concerns, including four pilots killed in 2007 and 2008. It was such a concern that local school officials once considered whether they should not allow student field trips at the event.

The competition is like a car race in the sky, with planes flying wingtip-to-wingtip as low as 50 feet off the sagebrush at speeds sometimes surpassing 500 mph. Pilots follow an oval path around pylons, with distances and speeds depending on the class of aircraft.

The FAA and air race organizers spend months preparing for air races as they develop a plan involving pilot qualification, training and testing along with a layout for the course. The FAA inspects pilots' practice runs and brief pilots on the route maneuvers and emergency procedures.

This is the report from the official press conference they did and some of the things in this report are more accurate then the article above:

3 Dead, including the pilot.

54 transported to hospital, 8 serious condition.

Pilot was 74, and a true expert.

Did NOT crash “Into the stands”!

Did crash a few (unspecified) yards in front of the box-seat stands, shrapnel from the crash caused death & injury.

The Big Hoss, With Perry’s Entry, The GOP Presidential Race Got The Adrenaline Shot It Lacked

Gov. Rick Perry and his wife Anita visit Rancho Del Cielo with Michael Reagan


The Big Hoss

With Perry’s entry, the GOP presidential race got the adrenaline shot it lacked.

National Review

by Rich Lowry

You could tell Rick Perry was going to be a big problem for Mitt Romney as soon as the Texas governor started blowing him kisses. Asked a question on his first campaign leg about a Romney talking point, Perry brushed it off with a smooch and said, “Send him my love.”

It was classic Perry — audacious, a little gauche, and entertaining as hell. Surely, Romney didn’t get blown many “right back atcha” kisses in the offices of Bain Capital or during his time as Massachusetts governor. The message was that Romney was about to get a challenge from a competitor less polite and earnest than erstwhile candidate Tim Pawlenty.

With Perry’s entry into the race, the GOP presidential battle got the adrenaline shot it lacked. Republican primary voters had been yearning for a big, combative personality. They flirted with Donald Trump while he flirted with them, and briefly bestowed their favor on the energetic and mediagenic Michele Bachmann. But Perry has filled the void in full.

He’s a current officeholder and not a former something-or-other. He has a view of the world exactly counter to the president’s. He evidently has an allergy to nuance. And he campaigns with a plunge-into-the-crowds, let-it-all-hang-out relish that none of the other candidates can match. There is no substitute for a politician enjoying himself, and out on the hustings, Perry acts as if nothing could possibly please him more than shaking another hand or slapping another back.

Even during the debates, where his performances have been uneven, Perry has usually been loose and confident. He never shies from a fight, and (most of the time) seems to enjoy them. He laughs easily. No one would vote to elect him to the Oxford Union, but if it somehow happened, he’d have a heck of a time exchanging frank views with “the fellas.”

What we’re about to see is if these qualities of Perry — call it his “hossness” — are enough for him to become the durable frontrunner in the Republican-nomination fight. He can go a long way just by demonstrating he’s a fighter in the mold of a Sarah Palin or a Donald Trump. That means making the occasional incendiary comment, never apologizing, earning the hatred of the elites, and not sweating the details. All of this, Perry has nailed.

But to become president of the United States, he’ll have to reach persuadables who don’t value outrageousness for its own sake. If he’s never willing to back down, he’ll have to go — should he win the nomination — all the way to November 2012 defending the notion that Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke is possibly guilty of treason. On Social Security, he’s managed to take what turns out to be his thoroughly conventional Republican view that the program should stay the same for seniors and near-retirees while it’s reformed for younger people and make it radioactive through his choice of words and his theoretical musings. His campaign so far has no policy except generalized statements celebrating Texas and condemning the federal government.

Tellingly, his weakest moments in the debates have come when he’s been attacked from the right and can’t fight back with brassy, crowd-pleasing one-liners. He’s made uncomfortable by his streak of pragmatism as Texas governor. For all his self-portrayal as an anti-government purist, he’s adept at marshaling and using power. When he says he’s pro-business, he’s not kidding. Republicans will have to quickly drop the phrase “crony capitalism” from their vocabulary if he’s the nominee.

In this year of populist discontent, the blunt outsider Rick Perry has a natural call on the Republican heart. The question is whether he can maintain enough appeal over time to the Republican mind, which will eventually calculate the odds of a prospective nominee vanquishing the incumbent. Whether Perry makes it or not, he’ll never be dull. If success were solely a matter of animal spirits, he’d be a lead-pipe cinch.

Rick Perry Slams 'socialized medicine' ~ Thank You Gov.!

Rick Perry slams 'socialized medicine'


Rick Perry has proved he will keep coming at his rivals hard, and today in a speech at the Iowa Credit Union League he added another data point:

"The model for socialized medicine has been tried before…whether it was in western Europe or in Massachusetts…The problem with state-sponsored health care is that you cannot contain it just within the borders of your state. When that plan took effect, it also increased Medicare/Medicaid costs.”

Perry also said [Mitt] Romney’s health care law, which last night he referred to as RomneyCare, had “killed” 18,000 jobs according to a Beacon Hill Institute study.

“Think about what ObamaCare would do if it’s implemented all across this country. It must be repealed.”

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

There are some really important things that have got to be in the future debates and this topic is one of them. I sure hope the debates do not get into a rut lead by Michele Bachmanns nagging on the same topic over and over again.

We need to hear about Obamacare, Cap and Trade, drilling for oil and yes jobs too. Good for Perry. This is where we need to be. It is time to slam Obama on this 24/7.

Perry Colleagues Remember Solid Pilot And Airman

Perry colleagues remember solid pilot and airman

When Rick Perry joined the 772nd Tactical Airlift Squadron in 1974, his fellow Air Force pilots could sense the poised, self-assured second lieutenant was headed for a successful career. But many never imagined his future lay in politics, or that he would one day become the leading candidate for the Republican nomination for president.

"I knew he would be really good at whatever he decided to do," said Bobby Forman, who attended Texas A&M University with Perry and later served with him at Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene. "I had no inkling or even concept of Rick going into politics. It never crossed my mind."

It's a refrain repeated by several airmen who served with Perry in the 772nd, where Perry was by at least one account the most popular person in the unit.

"I think we were all surprised," said Dale Scoggins, who served with Perry as an aircraft commander. "We weren't talking politics a lot back then. The topic of the era wasn't deep philosophical questions."

In interviews with half a dozen men who served with Perry 35 years ago, a picture emerges of Perry as a good pilot, a competent and safety-conscious airman and a magnetic personality who often invited his comrades on hunting trips near his hometown of Paint Creek in West Texas and who could be the life of the party on the unit's many overseas deployments.

But the picture is in some ways incomplete: Perry and his campaign have so far refused to release any of the governor's military records, including evaluations he received during his Air Force career, which spanned 1972 to 1977. And Perry's military years have largely gone unexplored by Texas or national media outlets. Except for rare interviews on the subject and brief references in his two books, little more than a general narrative has become part of the public record.

Since joining the presidential race, Perry has frequently touted his Air Force experience, using it to emphasize President Barack Obama's lack of military service. "I think (service members) would really like to see a person who's worn the uniform in that office," he told reporters in August.

In the crowded Republican field, only Perry and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Lake Jackson, an Air Force flight surgeon, have military experience.

Perry's publicly available military documents, which the Austin American-Statesman obtained from the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, sketch the rough outline of a fairly run-of-the-mill Air Force career.

After graduating in 1972 from Texas A&M, where he was a yell leader, Perry entered pilot training at Webb Air Force Base in Big Spring about three months before the Paris Peace Accords brought what was supposed to be an official end to the Vietnam War. Fighting would continue for a couple more years, but by the time Perry joined the 772nd squadron in 1974, American air forces had been pulled out of Vietnam.

He became a pilot of C-130s, the military cargo planes that have been a workhorse in the military air stable since the 1950s.

He moved through the ranks at a normal pace, according to his superiors in the unit, and left the Air Force as a captain.

According to an official history of Perry's currently deactivated squadron, the unit flew throughout the world, making airlifts from Mali to Panama and participating in relief efforts that brought grain and aid to earthquake- and flood-stricken regions.

Though Perry's publicly available records and accounts don't point to any obvious problems or anomalies, and though Perry has made his military service an important part of his fledgling presidential campaign, experts say his campaign is likely exercising an abundance of caution when it comes to releasing his full military records.

"From a campaign point of view, it strikes me that they're not interested in putting out any information that they don't have full knowledge of or control over," said Daron Shaw, a former George W. Bush campaign strategist and government professor at the University of Texas. "It's not clear what the upside is. The campaigns are so risk-averse, they don't want to deal with it."

Shaw said the campaign would be likely to thoroughly vet the records to make sure they don't cause any problems and then seek to time any release for maximum political impact, perhaps tying it to a major foreign policy speech.

"They want to do things on their own terms," Shaw said.

Another reason campaigns hesitate to release military records is that by their very nature, military evaluations include pluses and minuses, meaning even routine evaluations can be interpreted negatively, said UT government professor Bruce Buchanan.

"If I'm a candidate, I don't want stories like that out there," Buchanan said.

Most presidential candidates have been reluctant to release full military records in recent years, even when military service has been a campaign cornerstone.

Bush famously was involved in skirmishes with the media over release of his Texas Air National Guard records and didn't release some until after his first term; Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., didn't release the entirety of his records until after his failed 2004 campaign; and even Sen. John McCain, whose service in Vietnam was a pillar of his 2008 campaign, did not release the entirety of his extensive naval records after questions emerged over his flying safety.

Shaw said he ultimately expects Perry's campaign to release his records. "They could dig their heels in, but all that would do is fuel conspiracy theories," he said.

Perry joined the Air Force as the Vietnam War was winding down, and Perry's A&M classmate and squadron comrade Forman said the war loomed large among members of the A&M Corps of Cadets, where he said he and Perry were determined to become officers.

"Hundreds of our mutual friends ended up over there, and many of our friends left A&M early and went over," he said. "It was definitely a big part of our young adult lives: you have an obligation to serve your country, and that was definitely a big part of our thought processes as well as we entered our obligations as officers. In mine and Rick's case, we wanted to be pilots, and the best way was through the Corps of Cadets and entering the Air Force."

According to his service record and an official history of the 772nd Tactical Airlift Squadron, Perry joined the squad in 1974, about a year after the squad did a short rotation in Southeast Asia, flying in and out of the war zone.

Former squadron mates say Perry made an immediate impression on his fellow airmen when he arrived at Dyess Air Force Base in 1974 after flight training.

"People are assessing you from the moment you walk in the front door," said Forman, an Abilene resident who served as an aircraft commander with the 772nd squadron. "You were dealing with massive personalities. All of us were extremely confident young men, and he thrived in that environment."

"I remember he was slim, trim and in good athletic condition," said William Alexander of Colleyville, another pilot who served at Dyess with Perry. "I thought he was a pretty sharp guy and dependable. Some (airmen) you had to worry about, but he was on top of things."

Former mates say Perry, then a bachelor, often invited them on duck hunting trips and that his rental house near the base became a hangout for other officers.

"He was probably the most popular kid in the squadron," said Thomas Epperson, a retired pilot in Woodstock, Ga., who mentored Perry when he first joined the Air Force. "He was a lot of fun, a good guy."

The squadron deployed ceaselessly during the 1970s, making regular flights to Germany and England, as well as trips to Africa and Central America, to provide relief aid.

Fellow pilot John Petro, of Garden Ridge, remembers a trip to Turkey when local base workers went on strike, forcing hungry airmen to eat military ready-to-eat meals. "The next crews brought us in bratwurst from Germany. Rick was on one of those crews, and we were so happy to see him," he said. "He had a reputation as a good pilot. He was a good, capable pilot and very safe."

Scoggins, now a real estate consultant in Abilene, said the atmosphere on overseas deployments was boisterous and fun-loving. "It was kind of like a fraternity environment," he said. "The emphasis in that time was where's the nearest cold beer, where are we going to sleep tonight, where's the party."

Perry recently said during a speech at Liberty University that he found God after his time in the Air Force.

"I was 27. I'd been an officer in the United States Air Force commanding a fairly substantial piece of sophisticated equipment, telling men and women what to do. But I was lost spiritually and emotionally. And I didn't know how to fix it," Perry said.

Perry has also said that his frequent overseas deployments shaped his post-military outlook. "It became abundantly clear to me, at that particular point in time, that America was this very unique place and that our form of democracy was very rare," he told the Abilene Reporter-News in April.


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

So how many pieces like this did we see in Obama’s campaign ? I don’t mean military experience (of course) but something as basic and normal as quotes from people in his past that remembered him ???

We are still waiting on John Kerry’s military records, aren’t we.

And no one knows whether Obama was really enrolled at any of his schools other than assuming that he was enrolled at Harvard when he was on the law review. But somehow, no one’s leaked his transcripts.

Obama Campaign's 'Attack Watch' Becomes Victim of Conservative Mockery ~ Backfires On Hate Monger Obama LOL

Hahahaha ......... Attack Watch Commercial made by a conservative.


Obama Campaign's 'Attack Watch' Becomes Victim of Conservative Mockery

FOX News

Attack Watch, website started by President Obama's campaign organization, was intended to be a repository for supporters to report "attacks" on Obama's record and get the facts. But its rollout has been met with scathing mockery by conservatives, who call it a second-rate version of previous Big Brother sites created by Team Obama.

The onslaught of hilarity was fed first by a brutal parody created by an outfit called Misfit Politics. The mock ad repeats the name "Attack Watch" in a voice mimicking the Budweiser "Whassup" ad of Super Bowl yore and then goes on to offer examples of the types of misinformation readers can report. ( SEE VIDEO ABOVE )

Conservative critic Mark Steyn, a native of the U.K., then cheered that he was the only foreigner with a designation on

Both were met with comment after comment from readers offering the type of "attacks" they were going to report to the Obama re-election site. The #attackwatch Twitter page was immediately spammed with tweet after tweet heavy on sarcasm regarding the president's stimulus and jobs creation plans.

"hey #AttackWatch I heard the only good 'Cash For Clunkers' did was get all the obama stickers off the roads, thank you," tweeted @speedyjerry.

"Hey #attackwatch, I saw 6 ATM's in an alley, killing a Job. It looked like a hate crime!" wrote @thorninaz.

Obama campaign spokeswoman Katie Hogan told the Washington Post that 100,000 people had signed up for the site in the first 24 hours.

"This site is a tool providing our supporters with the facts they need to fight back against lies and distortions about the president's record," she told the newspaper.

But syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin said this site, the fourth one launched in three years attempting to respond to political attacks, has backfired on the Obama team.

"What this is really about is some sort of campaign against their opponents, and it's not working anymore," she said.

"Back in 2008, the Obama campaign had claimed this mantle as the tech savvy geniuses, and what's happened is that conservatives on Twitter and on YouTube and all the social networks have been able to strike back, and humor is always the best revenge," she said.

In an opinion article published in the International Business Times, Nadine DeNinno argues the site is pointless, saying it is counterproductive and has become a laughingstock.

"The website has become simply an instrument used by opponents to rail the president by conservatives, using it as their personal punching bag," she wrote. "The people who monitor the site will be quite busy, as Attack Watch only warrants more attacking."

She also wondered how many jobs the site created, "or how long it took to conceive, in which case jobs could have been created instead?" She then quoted @BradThor who tweeted, "If only the #Obama administration could create an atmosphere where jobs materialized as quickly as #attackwatch jokes!"


Here are some examples of what our side has been posted at the Tweeter site of Obama's Attack Watch:

“Just saw six ATMs in an alley killing a job.”

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

Attack watch" is a terrible idea. At best it seems desperate and beneath a president. Others interpret it as intimidation towards opponents. I'm glad freedom-loving Americans are fighting the authoritarian with an avalanche of humor.

Seriously, our best weapon, now that it's got a foot hold, it humorous derision. Not only does it destroy the enemy like nothing else, but a narcissist cannot take it. I imagine he's coming unglued in private by now - but if we keep it up through the next few months, he'll implode in public.

Tweeter page for the tweets on the attack watch twitter site, not going so well for the WH. Should give you a little laugh for the day.

LOL I still do not tweet or know that much about it, but the page link I just posted you can just read it and have some laughs.

Jim DeMint: Obama jobs plan ‘venture socialism’

DeMint: Obama jobs plan ‘venture socialism’

The Daily Caller

Calling President Barack Obama a “socialist” used to be considered taboo by left-wing critics of the right. But the president has not done much to alter that perception, at least according to South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint.

In an appearance on Wednesday’s “On the Record,” host Greta van Sustren asked DeMint if there was anywhere he could find common ground with Obama

“I would love to be able to work with the president on something,” DeMint said. “But he’s practicing what we call ‘venture socialism.’ I mean, he basically has taken an approach where it’s the government that needs to stimulate jobs, and I know as an employer… you don’t hire someone because the payroll tax is a little lower or you get a $4,000 tax credit. And you certainly don’t hire anyone if they’re going to tax you more, which the president says — everybody making over $200,000 got to pay more of their fair share. They already pay 50 percent of all federal taxes now and 40 percent of that income is small business.”


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

I love how bold DeMint has become with this president. Obama is a socialist and our representatives should be screaming it from the mountains .

Perry Repeats Socialist Charge Against Obama Policies ~ Good! Perry Is Correct!!

Rick Perry comes out swinging in an exclusive interview in the new issue of Time magazine, which hits newsstands tomorrow. Perry sat down with the magazine's editor, Rick Stengel, and Mark Halperin, its editor at large and senior political analyst; he was photographed for the cover by Platon in a tight close-up.

Perry Repeats Socialist Charge Against Obama Policies

New York Times

In an interview with Time magazine, Gov. Rick Perry showed that he had no intention of softening the cactus-thorned rhetoric he developed during his decades in Texas politics, notably repeating his characterization of President Obama’s policies as “socialist.”

“Look, when all the answers emanate from Washington, D.C., one size fits all, whether it’s education policy or whether it’s health care policy, that is, on its face, socialism,” Mr. Perry told Time’s Richard Stengel and Mark Halperin.

In 2009, Mr. Perry told a Republican group in Texas that the Obama administration is “hell bent on taking America towards a socialist country.” This year, as he faces charges from his rivals for the Republican nomination that his positions are too extreme to win the general election, Mr. Perry said he will not change the way he speaks to appeal to the nation as a whole.

He also refused to back down from his characterization of Social Security as a “Ponzi scheme.”

“American citizens are just tired of this political correctness and politicians who are tiptoeing around important issues,” he said. “They want a decisive leader.”

He continued, “No one gets confused about the point I was making, that we have a system that is now broken. We need to make sure that those on Social Security today — and those approaching it — know without a doubt it will be in place.”

Wild Thing's comment......

If ObamaCare and the redistribution of wealth AREN’T socialist policies, what are they?

Perry is dead on accurate; perhaps even kind in his criticism.

Romney: "There's a Good Shot" I Can Be In The White House

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is escorted by business leader Jim Click Jr. after arriving in Tucson for a round table discussion at a local car dealership. (Ross D. Franklin / Associated Press)

Romney predicts Obama will be a one-term president, and said he would probably replace him

Romney: "There's a Good Shot" I Can Be In The White House

Los Angeles Times

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney seized on Wednesday's news that the income of the average American family has declined to what it was in 1996 to argue that President Obama has proven himself unable to fix the nation's economy.

"That is an indication of failure and the policies of this president have not worked," Romney told a few dozen business leaders at an economic roundtable at a car dealership. "The economy was in trouble when he became president. Everything he did, almost without exception, made things worse. His policies have failed."

Romney asked the gathered businessmen and women to share their concerns, which ranged from onerous regulations that created uncertainty, the rising cost of healthcare and the tax code. Romney reiterated his positions, arguing that regulatory relief, an overhaul of the tax code and a change in how consumers purchase health insurance were key to fixing the nation's economy.

"We keep thinking a little stimulus will get things going. What's wrong in America right now cannot be cured by a little cup of gasoline on the fire," Romney said. "We need to fundamentally reshape the foundation of our economy and its relationship with government so businesses are once again and individuals are once again incentivized to invest in America."

He predicted that Obama would be a one-term president, and said he would probably replace him.

"There's a good shot I can be in the White House some day," Romney said


Romney Won't Use The Word Socialist


Romney used the interview Thursday to put some distance between himself and Texas Gov. Rick Perry when asked if he would use the word “socialist” to describe the Obama White House.

“Well, you know, words have a lot of unintended meanings and calling people socialists probably goes on the fact that it is true that President Obama’s team and the president himself seem to believe that government has a better approach to our economy than the private sector, and I disagree with that approach,” Romney said.

Romney continued, “I don’t use the word socialist, or I haven’t so far, but I do agree the president’s approach is government heavy, government intensive and not working.”


Wild Thing's comment......

Yeowie, I would not say that. hahaha

What a difference, others call it like it is.......DeMint and Perry and others saying socialist, or socialism regarding Obamoa. But Mitt Romney just won't do it. Sorry Mitt, we need leadership with a spine and you lost yours a long time ago.

Gov. Rick Perry Speech at Liberty University in Virginia

Gov. Rick Perry Speaks at Liberty University in Virginia; Tells Students the “Politics of this Country Should be Governed by Christian Values” .

From Lynchburg, Virginia where Gov. Rick Perry spoke to a convocation of Liberty University this morning, urging students to be involved in the political process. Perry reportedly told the students that “the politics of this country should be governed by Christian values,” and their involvement was needed to make that come to pass.

"Liberty student Meredith Shuler said Perry’s speech sealed the deal for her: She’ll be voting for the Texas Governor in the primary. “I was really impressed about he didn’t try to sell votes,” Shuler told TheDC. “He just really poured his heart out to the students.”

The Daily Caller

Texas Gov. Rick Perry used his speech at America’s largest evangelical University on Wednesday to connect with young evangelical Christians, abandoning the harsh political rhetoric of the 2012 campaign thus far in favor of a more faith-based message.

Perry still threw a few punches at Washington, D.C. establishment figures, though.

“Don’t muzzle your voice because you’re young,” he told the group of young evangelicals. “You have the right, like every American, to speak your mind. You have the right to insist on change, to tell the people in power that you will not have your inheritance spent or your future mortgaged.

“This country is your country as well. Don’t leave it to a bunch of Washington politicians to tell you how to live your life. This is your future that we are debating today. Don’t be silent.”

Perry said Americans need more Christian values in general. “It is important that [Christian leaders] stand in the pulpit every day and defend those values, those Christian values,” Perry said. “America is going to be guided by some set of values. The question is going go to be: Whose values?”

The Texas governor said he believes America will be guided by “the Christian values that this country was based upon.”

Several students in the audience told The Daily Caller that they found his apolitical approach refreshing.

Veronica Romero, a student who is undecided about which candidate she will support in 2012 when she casts her first vote for president, told TheDC she thinks Perry “really connected” with students through stories about his college years and young life. “He talked about what he went through in life and what he had to do just to succeed in school,” Romero said. “I think that helped him connect really well with the student body here.”

“It wasn’t what I expected,” added Sara Rodriguez, another Liberty University student. “I expected him to talk in a more political way, and it was more geared toward life itself. Not that I don’t like political stuff, but you could definitely see that he’s like a real person.”

Liberty student Meredith Shuler said Perry’s speech sealed the deal for her: She’ll be voting for the Texas Governor in the primary. “I was really impressed about he didn’t try to sell votes,” Shuler told TheDC. “He just really poured his heart out to the students.”

Shuler said Perry’s line about pushing back on Washington politicians really stuck with her. “He wants us to stand up and fight for what we believe in,” she said.

Brendan Madigan, a student from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, drove all the way to Lynchburg, Va., to hear Perry and said it was well worth it. Madigan is the chairman of a Pro-Perry group of North Carolina students.

“I go to UNC Chapel Hill, not the most conservative campus in the world,” Madigan told TheDC. “But people are coming on board with our group because they’re saying, ‘look, the Obama administration has failed to create jobs; they’ve failed to turn this economy around.’ And Governor Perry — you look at what he’s doing in Texas — great job creation, they’ve created more jobs in Texas than in the other 49 states combined. That’s what students are looking for.”


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

One of the things I also like is how Perry listens, one can tell during the debates as well. He leans in and the square look in the eyes and listens. To be campaigning himself and yet at the same time to make improvments along the way I think is a plus. It shows he is not arrogant like Obama too and that is very refreshing.

I have also noticed that Gov. Rick Perry and Herman Cain have honesty and humor as part of their core. I used to love how Reagan has a sense of humor and it came in handy many times.

Houston Family Who’s Daughter Died of Cervical Cancer Defends Rick Perry against Attacks on HPV Vaccine

For the critics of Rick Perry who try to make his Executive Order in 2007 to get the HPV Vaccine to young women in Texas some kind of diabolical decision, they might want to take a look at this video report from Houston TV Station KTRK. It tells the story of a cervical cancer victim that Gov. Rick Perry became very close to as she was dying. Her family is speaking out in Perry’s defense, angry that he is being vilified for taking up the cause of protecting the lives of young women.

“Solar Gate”...Obama's Corruption and Solyndra: DOE Let Taxpayers Take Backseat to Obama’s Buddy Investors in Bankruptcy

Morgan Griffith (R-VA) drills the inevitable fall guy for this fiasco, Jonathan Silver, on whether the subordination violated the law.

Guess who the private investors whose interests got put ahead of the taxpayers were! It turns out it was an investment vehicle called Argonaut Ventures I, LLC. And who is Argonaut Ventures.

Two of Solyndra’s largest investors are Argonaut Ventures I, L.L.C. and the GKFF Investment Company, LLC. Both firms are represented on the Solyndra board of directors by Steven R. Mitchell (see Solyndra S-1 page 119). Both are investment vehicles of the George Kaiser Family Foundation of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

George Kaiser was a bundler for President Barack Obama in 2008 election. The Daily Caller has done an excellent job of establishing that Mr. Kaiser visited the White House 16 of the 20 times that Solyndra investors or management visited there

More Solyndra: DoE Let Taxpayers Take Backseat to Obama’s Buddy Investors in Bankruptcy

The news is coming in fast and furious on the Solyndra scandal, which is now looking like it may become one of the prime campaign issues in 2012. In addition to the revelation that the Obama administration pressured the OMB to approve the loan guarantees to Solyndra in order to preserve Vice President Biden’s photo op, more details are coming out about the Solyndra’s collapse, and it looks increasingly like this was one of the most crooked government boondoggles ever. The details are so bad, the mainstream media is now giving them extensive coverage. I’ll give you the conclusion up front: when it was obvious in February 2011 that Solyndra was going to go under and someone was going to take a financial bath, the Obama administration ensured that friends and donors of Barack Obama were protected while the American taxpayers were left out to dry.

For example, ABC news is reporting that DoE officials warned before the loan was even approved (in 2009) that Solyndra would go bankrupt in September 2011, a prediction which turned out to be 100% accurate.

The Obama administration ignored this warning and pressured the OMB to approve a loan to a company founded by one of President Obama’s biggest bundlers, George Kaiser, who visited the White House 16 times in the last two years on behalf of Solyndra. In the wake of Congressional hearings today, it was revealed that it was obvious that Solyndra was going to go under and that someone was going to take a bath on the entire project. In order to delay the PR debacle, the DoE secured bridge financing in the amount of $75M. In exchange for this financing, the DoE allowed the taxpayers’ interest to be subordinated to the interests of the private investors in bankruptcy.

The DoE is attempting to defend this transaction by claiming that without the financing, the company would have had to liquidate in February, which would have somehow resulted in less money for the taxpayers. Megan McArdle, who is an Obama voter who doubts there is actual corruption here, does an excellent job of destroying that contention (and outlining how disastrously indefensible this deal was from start to finish) in this post.

The money shot:

Last February, there was a hail-mary financing round in which the firm raised $75 million. But to secure that deal, the administration had to agree to take a back seat to the new investors. Today, the DOE’s Silver argued that this was the right decision, because quitting then would have meant liquidation, while now it can be reorganized as a going concern. Mr. Silver knows more about Solyndra’s operations than I do, of course, but I am struggling to see how it can be “more valuable” as a going concern manufacturing products that cannot be sold at a profit. This is not a case of a company that has crippling debt or legacy costs, or a temporary cash flow problem, which can be resolved in bankruptcy. It seems to have a permanent structural gap between the cost of manufacturing its products, and the price at which people are willing to buy them.

So what? I hear you cry. Well, for those of you who did not have to take several semesters of accounting, an NOL carryforward allows you to use losses from past years to reduce your taxable income in future years. So if you lose $100,000 in one year, but make $300,000 the year after, you can sort of average them together, and only have to pay taxes on $200,000. (I’m simplifying madly, but this is the general idea.)

These are not supposed to carry through bankruptcy, but in some circumstances they can. Krasting is suggesting that the only reason another company would buy Solyndra is to use its NOLs as a tax shelter.

That’s certainly a good deal for the creditors in line ahead of the government; depending on the price another company is willing to pay for those NOLs, they may get all their money back. But even if DOE gets some money back from the sale, this is not a good deal for the government, because if Krasting is right, 100% of the value of the sale comes from foregone tax revenue. (To be sure, that’s a big if–but it’s all too plausible.) Adding another nine months of losses to the books might have upped the value of the firm to a potential buyer . . . but only because it was transferring even more money out of the government’s pocket and into the pocket of private firms.

What is increasingly clear is that at no point in this entire farce did the Department of Energy give the first thought to the investment provided by the United States taxpayers – and at every opportunity Obama’s political buddies and donors were allowed to benefit from questionable calls from the DoE. I suppose it’s possible, as McArdle believes, that this was merely a coincidence and that no corruption was present, but it’s looking less and less likely every minute.


Solyndra officials made numerous trips to the White House, logs show

Not only does the now-bankrupt solar energy firm Solyndra have a cozy financial relationship with the Obama administration, company representatives also made numerous visits to the White House to meet with administration officials, The Daily Caller has learned.

According to White House visitor logs, between March 12, 2009, and April 14, 2011, Solyndra officials and investors made no fewer than 20 trips to the West Wing.


Breaking: FBI executing search warrants at Solyndra right now.

FBI spokesman says federal agents executing search warrants at California solar firm Solyndra

Major investor makes multiple visits to the White House, his investment gets more than half a bil from the government, skids greased, goes through in record time, and we’re supposed to believe the subject never came up.

This would have been enough to run G.W. Bush out of town on a rail.

I sure hope those who have been chosen to take a prison term for this, have copies of data squirreled away.

Look At this......

From an NBC affiliate:

President Obama faces political catastrophe in the form of Solyndra

Obama faces political catastrophe in the form of Solyndra -- a San Francisco Bay area solar company that he touted as a gleaming example of green technology. It has announced it will declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy. More than 1,100 people will lose their jobs

It's not his statements the administration will regret; it's the loan guarantees.

Obama Begs “If You Love Me, Ask Congress to Pass My Jobs Bill”

CBS News

Obama continued pushing his jobs bill in battleground states on Wednesday, telling a fired-up crowd of students at North Carolina State University that, “If you love me, you’ve got to help me pass this bill!”

Mr. Obama, speaking to a crowd of more than 9,000 people in an unairconditioned auditorium, reiterated the main points of his recently-unveiled American Jobs Act, and urged students to help him get it passed through Congress.

Framing the task as a “homework assignment,” the president called on students to “lift your voice, make it heard.”

“For those of you who did skip class today, I’ve got a homework assignment for you,” he said, “tell your Congress person that the time for gridlock and games is over; the time for action is now.”

“You can write a letter,” the president suggested, to laughter from the audience, after listing off a series of (largely Twitter-generation-friendly) methods for students to speak out. “When was the last time you did that?”

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

heh heh ....Apparently, Dems in the House no longer love Obama, then, as none of them will even bring up as a bill.

This is actually pure Marxists ideology-—promote “emotions” over intellectual exercise. All Marxist ideas are bankrupt and can never stand any scrutiny.

Obama's At It Again, Remember His 2008 “the Barack Obama Truth Squad"? Now He Has His " Expose the Attacks" Squad!


Obama campaign launches snitch line website


It’s official. The Obama campaign launched a new snitch line website today ostensibly to handle “misinformation” out there against President Obama.

“Got my spy email today from the Obama campaign,” CFP reader Rosemary from Norwalk, Ct. wrote Canada Free Press (CFP). “They have set up a website called It is for people to report “lies” about Obama! They even reference some of their own.”

“How low can they go?”

Plenty low, as AttackWatch will soon prove.

The Obama campaign is only making official what they started back in the summer of 2008 with “the Barack Obama Truth Squad”.

“KMOV-TV in Missouri is reporting that Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has signed up law enforcement officials “to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign.” (Obama’s Legal Goon Squads, Matthew Vadum, CFP, Sept. 28, 2008).

“According to a summary on National Review Online by Jim Geraghty, prosecutors and sheriffs in the state are joining “the Barack Obama Truth Squad”. Mentioned in the report are Jennifer Joyce, a St. Louis Circuit Attorney, and Bob McCullough, prosecutor for St. Louis County, NRO reports.

“The reporter says, “They will be reminding voters that Barack Obama is a Christian who wants to cut taxes for anyone making less than $250,000 a year.

“While the report never comes out and says anyone running an ad saying those things would be subject to prosecution, that certainly is the message implied.

“Of course, the Senator is perfectly entitled to fight back if he believes his positions are being misrepresented, but he should do that with more speech, not heavy-handed legal maneuvering aimed at suppressing speech. We don’t need politically correct inquisitors. (We profiled Senator Obama in the June Foundation Watch. The article has proven so popular we had to order reprints.)”

That was 2008. Today Obama’s reelection campaign manager, Jim Messina announced the formation of

“Forming the first line of defense against a barrage of misinformation won’t be easy,” Messina wrote in a fundraising email to campaign supporters. “Our success will depend on a team of researchers and writers to stay on the lookout for false claims about the President and his record, bring you the facts, and hold our opposition accountable.”

ABC news was first of the alphabet television networks to jump in with sympathy in a story headlined, Obama ‘Attack Watch’ Website to Help Supporters ‘Fight Back’, quoting Tennessee college student Jennifer Kickliter, who signed up for the 2012 campaign. Kickliter said, It’s not easy being an Obama for America volunteer, especially when you feel ill-equipped to respond to the waves of attacks from his critics.

Meanwhile, the big question is will Tea Party members be falsely accused and prosecuted or just outed by Obama’s


Here is the email I received ..........~ Wild Thing

From: Jim Messina,
Subject: Expose the attacks
Date: September 13, 2011 7:56:35 PM EDT


f you're someone who cares about seeing a campaign focused on substance between now and November 2012, I need you to become a part of one of our most important teams.

It's called, and it launches today.

Here's the deal: We all remember the birth certificate smear, the GOP's barrage of lies about the Affordable Care Act, and the string of other phony attacks on President Obama that we've seen over the past few years.

There are a lot of folks on the other side who are chomping at the bit to distort the President's record. It's not a question of if the next big lie will come, just when -- and what we're prepared to do about it. is exactly what it sounds like: a resource that allows us to nip these attacks in the bud before they show up on the airwaves and in emails -- and then fight back with the truth.

By signing up, you'll be on the front lines -- you'll hear about false claims as soon as they come up, and we'll count on you to spread the truth to your friends and personal networks and let us know about new smears whenever you hear them.

Will you sign up now to be a part of

Yes, I want to be on the team that fights back.

Not right now, but I'll donate $5 to fund the 2012 campaign and support this work.

I remember the smears from 2008 well, and I'm sure you do, too.

They didn't just attack Barack Obama and Joe Biden. They went after everything this movement is built on, and everyone who supports it.

This time, they're not just out to personally attack the President -- they're also out to mislead Americans about the record of accomplishments that he's compiled. Just the other day, a Republican financier actually quoted Saddam Hussein in telling a group of millionaire donors that defeating President Obama will be "the mother of all wars."

We're launching today to make sure we're ready for the attacks we know are coming -- and armed with the ability to fight back quickly.

Sign up for now, and let's get the facts out:



Jim Messina
Campaign Manager
Obama for America


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

The last presidential election I signed up for every one of the candidates. Because I have a blog and wanted to get any news the candidates were sending out. Hillary and Obama have kept me on their list.LOL Know what the enemy is doing kind of thing.

This should be illegal to do something like this. IMO

GOP Sweep, Republicans Win Special Elections In Nevada and New York

Republicans are trying to sweep the two Special Congressional Elections being held tonight. Right now, Republican Bob Turner is leading Democrat David Weprin in New York’s 9th Congressional District by 2,500 votes, 53%-47%. This district has been in Democrat hands since 1923. So, it would send shockwaves throughout the country if Turner can pull out a win in Anthony Weiner’s old district. Barack Obama is not polling well in this district, and a loss there by the Democrats would signal just how weak he is around the country.

In Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District, Republican Mark Amodei is way ahead of Democrat Kate Marshall in early vote returns. Here are links to the Associated Press vote returns for the two districts:

New York CD-9

Nevada CD-2

UPDATE 9/14/11 12:05 AM - The Associated Press has called the New York CD-9 race for Republican Bob Turner!

UPDATE 9/14/11 12:11 AM - The Associated Press has now called the Nevada CD-2 race for Republican Mark Amodei!


Wild Thing's comment.....

This is a devastating blow to Democrats in the heart of New York.

It’s a sweep for the GOP!!!!

Dr. Ronald DePinho, The President of MD Anderson Cancer Center Calls it “Unethical” to Not Support HPV Vaccination

Food for thought. Perhaps the attacks on Rick Perry for his attempt at an Executive Order to get the HPV Vaccine to young girls in Texas will end up doing good – not so much for those using it against him for political gain – but to raise awareness that the vaccine can prevent 80% of cervical and head / neck cancers caused by the HPV virus. Perry’s Executive Order never went into effect because of political opposition, and he now admits he went about it all the wrong way. But he does not back away from his desire to get the vaccine to young girls and young women to try and prevent cervical cancer.

Here is video of Dr. Ronald DePinho, President of the renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center, talking bluntly about the incredible benefits of the HPV vaccine. He calls it is, “not just sound but one of the great scientific advances in the history of medicine.”

Dr. DePinho went on to say that as the father of two young girls, as well as speaking as a physician, “there’s only one path here, which is to support vaccination. To do anything else would be unethical.”

Texas Tribune

Gov. Rick Perry's 2007 attempt to require that girls in Texas be vaccinated against the cancer-causing human papillomavirus, commonly known as HPV, has become a political hot potato. But Dr. Ronald DePinho, the new president of MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, says the vaccine is not just sound but "one of the great scientific advances in the history of medicine."

In last night's GOP presidential debate, Perry faced repeated criticism from other candidates for his HPV push. Michele Bachmann said it was “flat out wrong” to require that “innocent little 12-year-old girls be forced to have a government injection through an executive order.”

Part of Bachmann's critique was that Perry's executive order, which he now says he would handle differently, was the byproduct of cronyism. Perry's former chief of staff, Mike Toomey, was a lobbyist for the drug company Merck, maker of the vaccine, at the time. In interviews following the debate, Bachmann reportedly went even further, suggesting that the vaccine was a "a very dangerous drug" and could cause "mental retardation."

But today, in an interview with the Tribune, DePinho said that as a physician, and the president of a leading cancer research institution and as a father of two young girls, "there's only one path here, which is to support vaccination."

"To do anything else would be unethical," DePinho said.

His recommendation for anyone who opposes the vaccine: "Visit one patient with cervical cancer in an advanced state."


Wild Thing's comment......

I am glad this Dr. spoke up, maybe it will calm the waters of some of the constant bashing.

We have so much at risk with Obama in office and so many other things we need to be discussing and working hard to get someone elected to beat Obama. Obamacare is HUGE and I for one want to hear from the candidates how will you get rid of it. There are other questions as well, and we need to move on so we can hold the person accountable for what he/ she has said during the campaign about things like Obamacare etc.

Blacks Sue Obama & Democrats For Racial Discrimination

Blacks Sue Obama & Democrats For Racial Discrimination

Black Republican Association

By Frances Rice

Courageous aptly describes Rev. Wayne Perryman who has just filed a historic and landmark lawsuit in federal district court demanding an apology from the Democratic Party for centuries of racist oppression. This is Rev. Perryman's second attempt to seek long overdue justice. His first lawsuit in 2005 went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. In that case, the Democrats hired an army of lawyers, admitted their racist past, but refused to apologize. The Democrats were let off the hook by the Court on the legal technicality of "standing," since Rev. Perryman had not suffered personally from the Democratic Party's horrendous racism. Different this time are two factors. First, President Barack Obama is a named defendant. Second, this writer has joined Rev. Perryman as a plaintiff since I did suffer personally at the hands of the racist Democrats during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Click here to see my bio with details that is posted on the National Black Republican Association website.

Blacks File Class Action Racial Discrimination Suit Against Obama & Democrats

Seattle, WA. On September 11, 2011, blacks from the West Coast and the East Coast joined together and signed one of the most comprehensive legal briefs ever prepared on racial discrimination, then filed their brief today, September 12th, at 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time in US District Court in Seattle (Case No. C11 - 1503). The plaintiffs, who refer to the defendants as "Father of Racism," allege that as an organization, the Democratic Party has consistently refused to apologize for the role they played in slavery and Jim Crow laws and for other subsequent racist practices from 1792 to 2011.

Rev. Wayne Perryman, a former Democrat himself and the lead plaintiff in this class action lawsuit, said he was inspired to file this action after seeing the recent movie The Help. The movie takes place in the region that was exclusively controlled by Democrats for more than 150 years (the South). Mrs. Frances P. Rice, the Chair of the National Black Republican Association is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit. Mrs. Rice is a resident of Sarasota, Florida and has lived in the South most of her life.

The case cites the collective work of over 350 legal scholars and includes Congressional records, case law, research from our nation's top history professors, racist statements from Democratic elected officials, citations from the Democrat's National Platforms regarding their support of slavery, excepts of speeches from Senator Obama, individual testimonies from blacks who lived in the Jim Crow South and opinions from the NAACP.

Perryman said President Obama was named as a defendant not only because he is the official leader of the Democratic Party, but because of certain statements he made about his own party in his book, Dreams from My Father. In 2009, the President was asked to issue an apology to blacks on behalf of his party, but he refused. Unlike other reparations lawsuits, this lawsuit merely asks for a public apology, but no monetary damages.

In the 40-page brief, Rev. Perryman tells the court that the Democratic Party, (the party that is quick to call the Tea Party and Republicans racist), is the same party that refuses to confess and/or acknowledge (in public and on their website) that they are the party that supported the institution that packed millions of black men, women and children in the deep dark hulls of slave ships with just barely enough food and water to keep them alive, and forced them to lie in their own urine, feces, and vomit for the duration of a long trip across the Atlantic.

And after arriving in America, it was the members of their party that forced these poor souls to work from sunup to sundown for the next 70 years and never paid them one dime. And when the black victims were fortunate enough to escape, it was the Democratic Party that passed Fugitive Slave laws to return them to their brutal slave masters. When their inhumane institution of slavery was challenged by the opposing party, Democrats countered by placing threats in their political platforms (1844-1856), - threatening anyone who dared to interfere with what they called, "the sectional issue of Domestic Slavery."

In May 21, 1856, they carried out their threats when they attacked their opposition, Senator Charles Sumner with a walking cane on the Senate floor and when they attacked with guns, freed blacks and abolitionists on the streets of Lawrence, Kansas. Six years later, Democrats called themselves 'Confederates" and went to war killing thousands to defend and protect their racist institution of slavery.

After losing the war, they fought against constitutional amendments and civil rights legislation for blacks, and chose instead to form terrorist organizations, legislate Black Codes and Jim Crow Laws and support every landmark case that was designed to deny blacks their constitutional rights including the Slaughterhouse Case, Plessy v Ferguson, the Civil Rights Cases of 1881 to overturn the 1875 Civil Rights Act, and Brown v. the Board of Education. While many of these cases were pending, Democrats proudly adopted the name "The Party of White Supremacy" and committed every inhumane violent act known to mankind (from 1867 to 1977) to keep blacks in "their place." And to add insult to injury, after killing millions of blacks through their racist institutions, they hired powerful attorneys to keep this information from blacks and to avoid apologizing to blacks.

Perryman said, "Any organization that has such a racist history and receives 97% of the African American vote (after doing all they could to deny blacks the right to vote), should willingly apologize without being forced do so through a lawsuit. He said, "I guess they feel they have nothing to apologize for." Perryman went on to say that he is "convinced that Democrats will only apologize if the media, or the courts (with public pressure) will force them to do so. The man who authored the book: The Audacity of Hope, now has the "audacity" to refuse to apologize for his political party and their racist institutions, that took the lives of millions of his own people.
Apologies for Racism – Precedent Set

In the 40-page brief covering a period from 1792 to 2011, Perryman makes the following claims regarding past apologies for racism and racial injustices. Perryman said history reveals that an apology or reparation for blacks would not be an issue today had the Democratic President Andrew Johnson chosen to sign Senate Bill 60. Since Johnson's veto of Senate Bill 60, the door for reparations involving racial injustices remained closed for over 120 years.

In 1988, Congress opened that door with the passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988. Under that new bill, Japanese internment victims received an apology plus $20,000 each in reparation pay. In 1993, the victims of the Rosewood, Florida Massacre received an apology and reparations from the State of Florida. On May 16, 1997, President Clinton issued an apology to the victims of the Tuskegee Experiment and paid the African American victims a total of $10,000,000 in reparations.

On February 7, 2005, the 109th Congress issued Senate Resolution 39 and apologized for not enacting lynching laws to protect those who were victims of lynching. In that resolution, Congress stopped short of acknowledging that all of the lynchings took place in regions controlled by Democrats.

And finally on January 20, 2007, the Executive Committee of the Democratic Party of North Carolina apologized for the 1898 riot and massacre that killed several black Republicans and drove them out of office.

Who is Rev. Perryman?

Rev. Perryman is the same Seattle minister who used his biblical research in 1994 to persuade the world's two largest Christian publishers and the Encyclopedia Britannica to apologize and remove the "Curse of Ham" theory from all of their publications. The curse theory had existed for over 500 years and was used by Southern Christians and Democrats to justify slavery and their mistreatment of blacks.


Wild Thing's comment.....

Thank God for these brave people, Frances Rice and Wayne Perryman. They know the truth and the real history and have been working hard to educate and get the word out telling blacks how they have been lied to.

Rush Limbaugh :“Forget this Vaccine Business. This is Ending Up Being a Giant Distraction” ~ Exactly Rush Is Right!

The Daily Caller

“Alright, Perry goofed up by using an executive order on the Gardasil,” Limbaugh said. “There’s no question he goofed up on it instead of taking it to the Texas legislature. He’s admitted that over and over again. I think one of the reasons that Perry gets tired is that he had all the questions. He had to answer a question three or four times last night and he did it smiling.”

However, Limbaugh cautioned the candidates not to use that against Perry, particularly because there was an opt-out provision in his executive order. Bachmann, he said, may have taken her attack a little too far.

“There was an opt-out,” Limbaugh explained. “If anybody didn’t want to take it they didn’t have to… So next time I’m going to have to issue another warning. Next time – not only don’t bother with this Social Security ‘Ponzi scheme’ stuff, but forget this vaccine business. This is ending up being a giant distraction. Now I said that [Michele] Bachmann may have jumped the shark. It’s just a gut a feeling.”

Limbaugh said Bachmann should have taken her victory in last night’s debate on the Gardasil issue and left it alone after that.

“Alright, now she had scored the points in the debate,” he said. “But now this comment has become a news item for Bachmann today, rather than what she said at the debate last night. That’s what I mean by ‘jumping the shark.’ She scored the points and should have left it there.”


Wild Thing's comment.....

I agree with Rush, Bachmann made her point, now back off and get ono to the next thing.

You all are right about this as well, there are so many things that need to be talked about and the border etc. as well and details of what would be done about it by each of the candidates.

"“This whole idea that the whole Muslim world is responsible for this and they are attacking us because we are free and prosperous, that is just not true. Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda have been explicit … they have been explicit and they wrote and said that “we attacked America because you had bases on our holy land in Saudi Arabia, you do not give Palestinians fair treatment and you have been bombing (audience boos) … I didn’t say that. I’m trying to get you to understand what the motive was behind the bombing. At the same time we had been bombing and killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqis for ten years. Would you be annoyed?

Debate aka “pile on Rick Perry night"

Governor Mitt Romney didn’t want to give Rick Perry an ounce of credit for the his role in the million jobs created in the state of Texas. Romney explained it this way, “He was dealt four aces.”


The desperation of several of the candidates was very obvious, as they launched one attack after another at the Texas Governor.

Michele Bachmann attacked Perry on the HPV vaccine,although she repeatedly misstated that girls were forced to receive the vaccine, ignoring that an “opt out” was given as a choice to parents. Perry has made clear he regrets using an Executive Order, but said he does not regret siding with “life” in wanting young women to be protected from Cervical Cancer – which the vaccine prevents.

Rick Santorum also mentioned Rick Perry’s name almost every time he spoke, even when he wasn’t asked about Rick Perry. He attacked Perry on the HPV issue as well as on immigration issues.

Mitt Romney attacked Rick Perry on Social Security right at the beginning of the debate, but Perry got the best of the exchange by pointing out that Mitt Romney is trying to “scare seniors” for political gain, and has himself called the way Social Security is being managed a “fraud.”

Newt Gingrich did very well once again, having perhaps the statement of the night when he said that Barack Obama “scares Americans every day.”

It was not an easy night for Perry because he was constantly the focus of attacks. But what the other candidates actually do when they repeatedly focus on Perry is to build him up as the frontrunner. They are desperate.


Wild Thing's comment......

Debate was ok and having it with the tea party from all over was interesting how they did it.

When they were attacking each other they got to go on and on, but if they start talking about real solutions they get cut off??

Rush Warns GOP Candidates Not To Attack Perry on Social Security

Rush Warns GOP Candidates Not To Attack Perry on Social Security

Rush says that some of these GOP candidates are on the record saying the same thing that Perry said about Social Security, namely Romney, and he is warning them not to attack Perry over it. He also warns Bachmann by name, saying he’s heard she is planning an attack on Perry as well.

He says it isn’t an endorsement, but radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh warned Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s competitors that he will go to bat for Perry if they choose to attack him over his claim that Social Security is a “Ponzi scheme.”

During his Monday show, Limbaugh warned the 2012 Republican field not to use Perry’s remarks against him. He specifically named Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

“I’ve not endorsed anybody and this is not an endorsement” Limbaugh said. “But be very careful if you start attacking Rick Perry on Social Security and the ‘Ponzi scheme.’ There are too many of you out there who have already said that yourselves — Mitt Romney. Mitt, you have already called it a Ponzi scheme. And worse.”

“I’ve got a whole list of people here — media and outside — in politics who have referred to Social Security as a Ponzi scheme,” Limbaugh went on. “And I’m hearing that Michele Bachmann is preparing to lay into Rick Perry about Social Security being a Ponzi scheme. And I would like to warn everybody: Be careful here because you’re pandering to the media.”


Wild Thing's comment....

Well Rush was right again. hahaa Michele Bachmann went into some kind of frenzy rant at Perry, even to the point of her voice going a tad shrill. haha
Michele calm down and speak in your lower voice, it is more effective to say the least.

Yakety Yak Don’t Talk Back by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Yakety Yak Don’t Talk Back

by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Obama’s speech to Congress shows his political insanity and childish narcissism as he proposes to try again what not only did not work last time but placed America in dire financial straits. He blames the failure of the last 1,000,000,000,000 dollar stimulus on Congressional inaction and infighting. Now he wants to spend another $500,000,000,000 on “MY jobs act” which “Congress should pass right now” (without reading it---just like Obamacare).

The hidden agenda behind his ‘act’ is a politically expedient injection of more money into union coffers so they can further fund the Obama re election campaign. When will Republicans and Independents in Congress stop pandering to the insanity of Leftwing Marxists, take charge and just say NO?! Continued funding of secular progressive programs represents a denial of reality by the Democrats and Obama and/or intentional destruction of the national economy to achieve their Marxist goal which is getting ever so close.

There are other significant news items across the wires this week. More weapons at the scene of border agent Brian Terry’s murder by Mexican cartels have been linked to the administration’s Project Gunrunner scandal which is still under investigation by Congressmen Darrell Issa and Charles Grassley. Dept. of Injustice Attorney General Eric Holder may be left holding the bag before it’s over.

He either turned a blind eye to this illegal operation by BATFE, FBI and DEA or had a hand in it. The purpose of the operation was to manufacture data which would support the Administration’s agenda to abolish the Second Amendment in its present form---a clear objective of any Marxist government wanting to disarm “We the People.”

Thanks in part to Obama’s pro-Islam anti-Israel posture and his exaltation of the ‘Arab Spring’, Egypt has lost all tolerance for freedom of religion. Elements of the radical Muslim Brotherhood have claimed responsibility for destruction of the Israeli embassy and threaten political takeover of Egypt. The ‘Arab Spring’ appears to be turning into chaos and an ‘Arab Winter’.

Obama’s lack of support for Israel and his apparent green flag to Syrian mass executions has also encouraged the Turkish president to dispatch Turkish warships to escort Palestinian Authority (PA) boats to Gaza which will certainly provoke Israel to defensive confrontation. In the past such PA ships ran weapons supplies to their brethren in Gaza in order to mount offensives against Israel.

Turkey is on the brink of economic collapse just like Greece, and their president feels isolated from the spoils of war in Libya where Britain, France, Jordan and Qatar have dominated. He wants to divide in half what is now one major fleet of Israeli Defense Force (IDF) ships guarding Gaza and Israel’s natural resources. The prospect of war between Turkey and Israel is ever so close and Barack and Hillary are nowhere to be found.

In the state of Washington, union longshoremen not only went on strike but trapped innocent non-workers and destroyed property---just another example of mob mentality and violence openly condoned this past week in Jimmy Hoffa’s (Junior) speech before AFL-CIO members. Hoffa openly proclaimed Tea Party patriots as open targets of his organization using vile speech and threats which seem to be acceptable to Obama as long as such rhetoric comes only from his radical Fascist friends.

Left wing Fascists, who prefer the label ‘secular progressives’, deny reality, distort the truth, and promote their self-centered Leninist ideology which worldwide has repeatedly proved itself an utter failure except for those few in control. They now stoop to verbal threats against patriots and outright destruction of property (Wisconsin statehouse and Washington state grain docks).

Their goal is the same as Obama’s—to build the entitlement society (Nanny State) which began under FDR and which has led to massive government ponzi schemes and ultimately American insolvency, not to mention moral decay as the state increasingly takes over the role of the Family. The means to the Left’s end is to create conflict and class warfare which ultimately forces a redistribution of wealth and destroys the free enterprise system which made America strong and with that will go our privacy, liberties and safety.

The rest of the civilized world thinks Americans are idiots to have elected an anti-American community organizer with an identity crisis to the highest office in the Land. Patriots must now more than ever be strong, unafraid, united and overcome the nightmare which is sinking our nation. Write or call your elected members of Congress and tell them to stand up and stop the wholesale destruction of America by insane ideologues who appear to be running the asylum of Fedzilla!

Greta and Mrs.Palin ~ Shame On Both Of Them


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

During that debate, Perry said he got $5,000 from Merck, and he raised $30M. He said to Bachmann:
If you think I can be bought for $5,000, I am offended”. It left her speechless.

Referring to Perry, Greta said "He says he would charge more than six thousand dollars to flip." This is an outrage because Perry did not say that!! Greta LIED! It was a federal program. It was tested, and Perry didn't make a dime on it. It was a $5000 campaign contribution from a drug company to the incumbent Republican governor. OOOOoooooh. Like they wouldn't have given him that measly contribution anyway.

Greta has been longing for Sarah to say she would be a candidate on her( Greta's) show. It would be a big scoop for Greta. Instead tonight Greta got the real Sarah.

So Palin made an accusation that Perry took Merck money in order to pass that bill. She did it in a very passive aggressive way. Too bad, I thought that was her supporters who did such things and she was above the fray. Apparently not. That is sad to see that happening.

Given that Sarah Palin endorsed Perry AFTER the whole Gardasil thing and even went to Texas and did a huge rally with him, her comments tonight on Greta's show prove what a total phony Sarah is. Why would she endorse him if she felt so strongly about it?

Sarah campaigned for McCain and helped to destroy the life of a good conservative J,D. Hayworth along the way .J.D. Hayworth. McCain destroyed his life, he didn't just defeat him, he destroyed him totally and completely financially and professionally, and Sarah helped McCain to do it. She never stepped forward once to help out JD afterward, not once.Why has she never ever admitted to making a mistake.

And Greta was interviewing Michele Bachman and said to her regarding Perry's comment about Merck's contribution to his campaign...and this is an exact quote since I had taped it and played it twice:
"He says he would charge more than six thousand dollars to flip."

Perry did NOT say that. This is an outrageous thing for Greta to have said and done.

There is a calmness and something very right inside my mind and heart when I support Gov. Perry. I listen to what he says but also how he says things, a directness, a strength and he means what he says. He is what a leader is and he will make a wonderful President. What Sarah did tonight imo is unforgivable and sad too. But I am also outraged at it because she did do some damage. Not for my support but in what she did she aided the enemy, the left they have got to be eating this up. She thought only of herself and not how important it is to get Obama out of office knowing that Gov. Perry has lead in the polls from day one. He is the one to take on Obama and win for our beloved country.

I realize some of you may get upset with me for saying these things. But I do not worship people, I loved Sarah for what I felt she was, and sincere was one of those things. She wanted to much to be like Reagan, but her words and deeds last night and some other things in the last few months have been a disappointment. I would never have mentioned any of this but she brought it on and I will not let it stand and stay quiet. Our country is more important to me then not being upset with Sarah and what she seems to think is acceptable treatment of a good man.

Just one last thought. Sarah has some very loyal people supporting her although the number has lessoned over time. People that from what I have seen online at varioius places at forums and Facebook are almost holding their breath waiting for her. She is doing them a disservice by her indecision. That is something that has bothered me how unfair it is to those that continue to support her. Many articles have been written about this and I have and will not post them because I felt it was negative to Sarah. But I mention it now since Sarah took the gloves off.

This rant of mine will not happen again with Sarah. Once is enough and now you know some of the things I have been bothered by and felt it best not to go into.

Tonight CNN/Tampa Tea Party Movement Debate


CNN/Tampa Tea Party Express Debate on Sept. 12 at the Florida State Fairgrounds.


CNN and the Tea Party Express, along with more than 100 local tea party groups from every state across the country, will team up Monday, September 12 to present a first-of-its-kind debate from the site of the 2012 Republican National Convention: Tampa, Florida.

Eight Republican presidential contenders will face questions from moderator and lead political anchor Wolf Blitzer during the two-hour event, which will air live on CNN from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. from the Florida State Fairgrounds.

The debate will focus on a wide-range of topics, including the role, size and scope of government, with a specific emphasis on issue number one to tea party members and all Americans: the economy.

In addition to questions from Blitzer, audience members inside the debate hall, made up in part by members from tea party groups in 31 states and the District of Columbia, will be invited to ask questions directly to the candidates. Questions will also be taken live from tea party members at debate watch parties in Phoenix, Ariz.; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Portsmouth, Virginia. Online, CNN will solicit questions via comments on, the CNN Politics Facebook page, and by using the #CNNTeaParty hashtag on Twitter.

The following Republican candidates will participate in the debate: Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, businessman Herman Cain, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

“The Tea Party plays an important role in advancing principles of fiscal responsibility and conservative governance across our nation through its efforts to recruit and elect leaders that will fight to instill these values in the halls of government at all levels throughout our nation,” said Gov. Perry. “I look forward to the opportunity this debate presents to discuss my record of conservative leadership and to share my vision with the great people of this country about how we will get America working again.”


Wild Thing's comment......

Seems kind of funny to have the Tea Partys from all over and CNN together on this.

Faithful Dog Leads Blind Man 70 Floors Down WTC Just Before Tower Collapses


Mr. Rivera and a little hero

Faithful Dog Leads Blind Man 70 Floors Down WTC Just Before Tower Collapses

The Scoop

In the aftershock of the worst terrorist gambit ever to hit the USA, we learn that the greatest inspiration can be found in the words, images and televised coverage of the American peoples' patriotic strength. But now, pan the cameras down a bit, and you'll find, just as heartening, the nation's dogs also upholding this great spirit of gallantry.

If you don't believe me, listen to this:

New York resident Omar Eduardo Rivera was unfortunate enough to find himself on the 71st floor of the World Trade Center north tower when the hijacked airlinerstruck the building 25 floors above him. Mr. Rivera, a computer technician who is blind, was in his office with his guide dog "Dorado" lying under the desk at the time.

According to the Contra Costa Times report published today, Mr. Rivera described how he unleashed his faithful friend, so that the dog might escape. But despite the chaos and the crowds of fleeing people, the four-year-old Labrador Retriever suppressed any selfish instinct for survival and instead stayed by the man's side and guided him to safety.

Mr. Rivera describes the drama:

"I stood up and I could hear how pieces of glass were flying around and falling. I could feel the smoke filling up my lungs and the heat was just unbearable.

"Not having any sight I knew I wouldn't be able to run down the stairs and through all the obstacles like other people. I was resigned to dying and decided to free Dorado to give him a chance of escape. It wasn't fair that we should both die in that hell.

"I thought I was lost forever—the noise and the heat were terrifying—but I had to give Dorado the chance of escape. So I unclipped his lead, ruffled his head, gave him a nudge and ordered Dorado to go.

"I hoped he would be able to quickly run down the stairs without me and get to safety. I thought he'd be so scared he'd run. Everything was in chaos. Glass was shattering around my head and people were rushing past down the stairs."

At that point, Dorado was swept away by the rush of people fleeing down the stairs, and Mr. Rivera found himself on his own for several minutes amid the pandemonium. But then the unexpected occurred, in the form of a familiar, fuzzy nudge from knee-high.

Mr. Rivera explains, "He returned to my side a few minutes later and guided me down 70 flights and out into the street, it was amazing. It was then I knew for certain he loved me just as much as I loved him. He was prepared to die in the hope he might save my life."

Inside the egress stairwell, they found some additional assistance from a co-worker. "I took hold of her arm. She went down on my right side and the dog on my left," says Mr. Rivera.

The narrow stairwell was extremely crowded, and confusion exacerbated the situation. "People were pushing and shoving past me. Everywhere there was a sense of terror."

But according to the man, order gradually prevailed: "...most people behaved quite prudently and grasped what was happening, so we walked down in an orderly fashion, but it was slow going. It was slow going because there were so many people struggling to get out but Dorado kept nudging me down step by step."

It took more than an hour for Dorado, Mr. Rivera and his co-worker to descend those 70 flights of stairs. Not long after they had reached the ground and gotten to safety, the tower collapsed.

Says Mr. Rivera, "I owe my life to Dorado—my companion and best friend."

Swiss Member of Parliament Has Had Enough! A Must See Video! We Need Leaders In America That Speak Like This!

Excellent speech by Swiss member of Parliament Oskar Freysinger said with passion and truth that no politician in Washington is yet ready to speak from the floor of Congress. In order for us to beat back the Islamists we need some key leaders in Washington to make a similar speech and lead the nation against the Islamist threat head on.

Awesome Speech By President George W. Bush Spoke Yesterday At The Flight 93 Memorial in Pennsylvania

President George W. Bush spoke this afternoon at the Flight 93 Memorial in Pennsylvania.

From his speech yesterday:

On 9-11, “The most lives lost on American soil on a single day since the Battle of Antietam.”

“One of the lessons of 9-11 is that evil is real and so is courage.”

“At the moment American democracy was under attack our citizens defied their captors by holding a vote. The choice they made would cost them their lives. And they knew it. Many passengers called their loved ones to say good-bye. Then hung up to perform their final act.”

“The Flight 93 heroes led the first counter attack in the WAR ON TERROR.”

“The temptation of isolation is deadly wrong.”

Bush receives a standing ovation. Even Bill Clinton and Veep Joe Biden stood up.


Wild Thing's comment.....

Wonderful speech by G.W.

One day we will have a real President in office again. Not a fraud, not a limp wrisred Muslim and Muslim loving, America hating POS like Obama.

God bless President Bush and Laura.

Obama Frowns On Saying al Qaeda Attacked Us So He Tries Turning 9-11 Into Day Of Service ~ MUSLIMS ATTACKED USA! (note I did not use the word al Qaeda)

Obama and family serving food at a D.C. soup kitchen in observance of “what the spirit of remembering 9/11 is all about.” This continues Obama’s now multi-year push to turn observances of 9/11 into a “day of service.”


Wild Thing's comment.....

Look there is nothing wrong with soup kitchens and doing volunteer work and days of service. I am not against that at all. But to push his community organizer crap on our country on the day of 9-11, to make it into something that is not facing the truth of what happened........ is a huge slap in the face imo.

Then he sends out his idiot memo NOT to use the words al Qaeda. Oh really , fine then I will say Muslims attacked us. The desth cult of Islam, the followers of Islam...Muslims flew the planes.

America Hater and Liar, Communist and Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa: ", I’ll call them names anytime I want" ~ Back At Ya Little Man!

Hoffa, who repeatedly defended his comments this week, told local media outlets he is still “very proud of what [he] said” on Labor Day.

“Anytime someone tries to take away the rights of Americans for collective bargaining, anyone trying to take away Social Security, I’ll call them names anytime I want,” Hoffa told KOMO News.


Wild Thing's comment.....

Well good Hoffa, then that means fight fire with fire and I will refer to you as I have. Communist Hoffa!

Hoffa, like so many UNION thugs is a bully. He thinks if he yells louder, threatens more he will get his way. Too bad that has worked for him in the past and it works for him with his weak minded UNION members. BUT I am a Tea Party kind of gal, an America loving, Flag waving, Bible reading, gun toting, anti- UNION, kind of gal and we don't bully, or scream, we don't have to.

George Soros: 9/11 Memorials are Nothing but Muslim Hate

Soros: 9/11 Memorials are Nothing but Muslim Hate

Big Journalism

George Soros has spent an inordinate amount of his life trying to change the landscape of economics to his benefit. Now he’s attempting to manipulate the sentiments surrounding the 9/11 anniversary.

As the U.S prepares to acknowledge the 9-11 10th Anniversary, multi-billionaire financier George Soros released a report that claims a conservative cabal of groups and individuals are Islamophobic and the 9-11 memorials are more about hatred for Muslims than commemorating the killing of close to 3,000 Americans by radical Islamists.

Soros calls these Americans, most of whom are conservatives, Fear Incorporated.

The Soros group known as the Center for American Progress (CAP) is deliberately attempting to take attention away from events in the U.S. that are in progress to commemorate the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history, and focus that attention on claims of Muslim-bashing by members of counterterrorism think-tanks, terrorism analysts and some members of the news media such as Fox News Channel.

That one of the report’s authors is in custody due to a suspected relationship with Hamas says it all.

One of the authors of this Soros-CAP report was interviewed by Al-Jazeera’s Samer Allawi, who is now in custody in Israel facing allegations that he’s a covert agent of Hamas.

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

It’s a shame that Soros couldn’t have taken someone else’s place on 9-11.

Soros and Satan partners for eternity.

Obama's buddy.

Wild Thing's comment......

Something I will always remember that contradicts the two video's above from the new regime.

Back when G.W. Bush was president and right after 9-11 happened. A cautious warning was put out, it was shown and discussed on TV, on the radio and in newspapers. The American people were told to avoid small groups of middle eastern men in public places, and the list went on. Also if one saw suspicious activity from the small group of middle eastern men to report it.

Now with the Muslim in the WH they have done all they can to try and stop the media and the population from referring to terrorists as Muslim and also the videos above are a good example of how the brain washing is done.

This is not about whites being innocent or all guilty or even close. But these videos are stupid and just so obvious propaganda to get Muslims to look innocent.

The Speech That Broke The Patience of the Country

LOL well done video hahahha........Obama uses variation of phrase ‘pass this bill’ 17 times in speech


The Speech That Broke The Patience of the Country?


Obama’s speech on Thursday night bordered on parody. His repetition of long-overused talking points combined with his repeated attacks on job creators and his incessant demand to “pass it right now” produced a mixture of arrogance and absurdity so transparently political that it lacked any capacity to cause political movement or to change anyone’s opinion on any issue.

Guy Benson, the political director here at, tweeted “That was a shallow, callow campaign speech masquerading as something important. Truly awful.” That tweet was retweeted by friends and strangers across the county again and again as it so completely and accurately summed up the president’s remarks as to need no improvement or additional commentary.


Wild Thing's comment......

What bill ??There is only a stupid horrible speech.

We were laughing at this, I started to count and then lost count as I was watching Boehner and thinking I just know he would rather be watching the football game.

Don't you just love how the democrats nake their bills? hahaha......lets pass the "Truth in Naming Acts- Act"! Wouldn't that be a frickin hoot? How does the "We Nationalized the American Health Care System Act sound? Not to your liking? How about the "If You Just Had a Heart Attack, We'll be with You Before You Know it Act? And the list goes on . . .

"We waited 30 months for this?"


Charles Krauthammer: Obama's Jobs Plan Is Designed So That Republicans Will Reject It (Video)


Statement by Texas Gov. Rick Perry on President Obama’s Speech

Rick Perry's website

Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding President Barack Obama’s speech to Congress:

“President Obama’s call for nearly a half-trillion dollars in more government stimulus when America has more than $14 trillion in debt is guided by his mistaken belief that we can spend our way to prosperity.

“Like the president’s earlier $800 billion stimulus program, this proposal offers little hope for millions of Americans who have lost jobs on his watch, and taxpayers who are rightly concerned that their children will inherit a mountain of debt.

“America needs jobs, smaller government, less spending and a president with the courage to offer more than yet another speech.”


Majority Leader Cantor on Fox News Hannity right after President Obama's speech says tonight's language sounds a lot like the stimulus from Feb. 2009

Eric Cantor Reacts To Obama's Jobs Plan: "It Was Not Accurate To Say It Was Paid For"


Rep. Michele Bachmann, who is running for president, filled the void with a press conference in which she ripped the president’s plan to pieces.

“Tonight, the president under the veil of one of the most sacred, deliberative forms -- a joint session of Congress -- delivered yet one more political speech where he doubled down on more of the same policies that are killing the United States economy,” she said, later calling the president “politically paralyzed” and “philosophically incapable of doing what needs to be done.”


Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney released a web video titled “960 Days” that highlights what his campaign calls Obama's three years of failure to turn around the economy.

The video shows a clip of the president’s speech Thursday on the 961th day.

“Mr. President. You are 960 days late,” the narrator says.


Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who worked in the Obama administration as ambassador to China until earlier this year, said Americans are “tired of President Obama’s empty rhetoric and failed policies; they’re desperately searching for leadership and, above all, results.”

“Tonight’s list of regurgitated half-measures demonstrates that President Obama fundamentally doesn’t understand how to turn our economy around,” he said.


"Tonight we witnessed the end of a Presidency. To say the speech was a rehash of failed ideas is an insult to failed ideas. Even the Democrats seemed bored. The media will squander whatever shred of credibility they have to prop up Obama, but it is now beyond them. The speech was petty, petulant and highly arrogant. Worse, it revealed, for the entire nation to see, that Obama has no clue what to do. The GOP should pick their nominee carefully, because that person WILL be President."--Mike Flynn, editor-in-chief


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

Herman Cain's response was Priceless! I LOVE this man......any Presidential hopeful would be a FOOL to not include them in their cabinet.

Massive Power Outage Hits 5 Million in San Diego and Other US Southwest Areas and Mexico

Segments of the California National Guard were placed on alert Thursday night that they needed to be ready to mobilize immediately if called upon by communities affected by the power outage.

Massive power outage hits San Diego


A major power outage hit San Diego County, Imperial County and parts of Orange County Thursday, leaving residents throughout the region without power.

The outage knocked out power at the Fox 5 studios at about 3:40 p.m.

San Diego Gas and Electric officials were scrambling to find out the cause of the outage. They said they would have a news conference when they have more information. The utility used Twitter to send the following message: “We understand power is out, we are working on the cause and solution. We do not have a restoration time yet”

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that its substations all over the county were without power. In addition, viewers from Chula Vista in the south to Oceanside in the north and as far east as Alpine called Fox 5 to report they were without power.
Sign up for FOX5 Breaking News alerts

Fox 5 Facebook fans report that the outage has also affected Tijuana and parts of Orange County.

KTLA, Fox 5’s sister station in Los Angeles, reports that parts of Orange County are without power, but Los Angeles has not been affected.

Authorities said power was out in El Centro in Imperial County. KSWT-TV reported that power was out in Yuma, Ariz., although Phoenix had power.


Wild Thing's comment.....

WOW this is a huge area to go without power.

A frieind of mine in AZ, and said her’ power came back on . She said it was the strangest thing. She was watching tv, and Obama came on, and the second he opened his mouth to speak, they lost their power. She did find that kind of hilarious.

The News said some parts have been restored, but many areas are still without not sure at this posting if all the areas have power now or not.

NBC Affiliate in Milwaukee Will Carry The Packers Pre-Game Over Obama's Speech

NBC Affiliate in Milwaukee Will Carry The Packers Pre-Game Over Obama's Speech To Joint Session

NBC picks Packers over Obama in Milwaukee

Washington Examiner

He probably didn't know it at the time, but when President Obama greeted Green Bay Packers quarterback (and California Golden Bears alum) Aaron Rodgers at the White House this August, he was shaking hands with the competition. And not because Obama is a Chicago Bears fan.

The NBC affiliate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, WTMJ TV announced yesterday they will not be airing Obama's jobs speech at 7 PM EST Thursday night. instead they are opting for their own pre-game coverage of the Packers Saints game scheduled to kick off at 8 PM. Green Bay's NBC affiliate, NBC 26, will also go with the Packers pre-game show over Obama.

Saints fans do not appear to be as devoted to their team. WDSU, the New Orleans NBC affiliate, plans to stick with Obama.

Gov. Rick Perry's Response To Texas Death Penalty Question At Debate Drew Cheers and Other Perry Responses ~ Awesome!

Brian Williams: Governor Perry a question about Texas. Your state has executed 234 death row inmates more than any other governor in modern times. Have you struggled to sleep at night?

Governor Rick Perry: No sir. I’ve never struggled with that at all… If you kill one of our children or police officers or another citizen in a crime you will face the ultimate justice in Texas.

Then the cherring got louder for Rick Perry.


NBC host Brian Williams didn’t expect Rick Perry to correct his misstatements.
Perry corrected Williams on the minimum wage jobs in Texas.

Governor Rick Perry quickly corrected NBC’s Brian Williams tonight when he tried to smear the governor’s jobs record in Texas. Perry told Williams that 95% of the jobs created in Texas were above minimum wage.


After an hour it’s become obvious that the media’s only objective tonight was to attack Rick Perry.
Perry just said, “I sorta feel like the pinata here.”

Brian Williams goes back on the attack against Rick Perry – challenges him on the Texas school systems.

Rick Perry: “For the president to come to El Paso and say the border is more secure than it’s ever been, he either has the worst intel in history or he’s an abject liar.”


Perry gets a question on how to make the border secure

Rick Perry: For Obama To Say The Border Is Safe, Either He's Got Poor Intel Or "He's Was An Abject Liar"


Wild Thing's comment......

Perry did great and I loved his responses. I have seen several articles about the debate and the ones I have seen have Perry as the winner of the debate.

The main thing for me it is the first time I have seen him debate so that was important just on a personal level to see the person I am for in action.

Why Rick Perry Won the GOP Debate at the Reagan Library

Why Rick Perry Won the GOP Debate at the Reagan Library


“When the dust settles on presidential debates, they are usually remembered for one defining moment, and in this case, that was undeniably the exchange between the race’s two frontrunners on Social Security.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry refused to back down on his comments that Social Security was a “Ponzi scheme,” explaining that while it would be there for those at or near retirement, it was not sustainable for younger generations. He said politicians need to be willing to be “provocative” on the issue in acknowledging that the program was a “monstrous lie.”

Yet Mitt Romney played it safe, saying there needed to be tweaks to the program’s finances, but that it was wrong to call it a failure.

The exchange, more than any other moment in the debate, epitomized the contrast between Perry and Romney’s approaches to the campaign. Romney is the establishment candidate who is trying to win on the basis of being the most “reasonable” and electable, whereas Perry wants to come across as somebody who will stick to his conservative principles and tell it like it is.

Ultimately, I think this contrast is likely to play into the hands of Perry in the Republican primaries, because right now the base wants somebody who is willing to shake things up and challenge the status quo. And there’s good reason for them to feel this way. For anything to get done about the nation’s long-term fiscal problems, we’ll need a president who is willing to embrace real changes to our existing entitlement structure. After watching this exchange, Perry seemed willing to do that, whereas Romney seemed to be offering more of the same. His general answer on Social Security tried to have it both ways. By defending the program as a great success that simply needed to be adjusted, it wasn’t all that different from Obama.

So I think Perry, with the Social Security answer, his strong defense of his death penalty record, touting of Texas’s economic performance, and his willingness to attack his rivals in a way that Tim Pawlenty was not, showed us why he shot up into the lead in national polls shortly after entering the race. Yet he seemed to tire as the debate wore on, and many of his answers — such as on global warming, foreign policy, the uninsured rate in Texas, and education — were evasive, vague and unfocused. While he didn’t make any major gaffes tonight, in future GOP debates, and especially if he becomes the nominee, he’ll have to come off as a long more polished and demonstrate a better grasp of specifics.

Perry’s courage in speaking the truth about Social Security bodes well for his willingness to frontally tackle entitlement reform, and the opposite appears true of Romney. A principal reason that voters are reluctant to change entitlements is because politicians lie to them, claiming that these programs are just fine. Perry, on the other hand, says things like this: “I think the first step in finding the solutions is admitting we have a problem—and admitting that Social Security is a Ponzi scheme.” Perry is right.


Wild Thing's comment......

This is an awesome write up, I hope you all have time to read it. It really describes why Perry made a difference in the debate and I think he will keep on hitting hard on important things.

Anti-Semitic and Nut Case Ron Paul Wants to Pull Plug on A/C for Troops in Afghanistan

Ron Paul Wants to Pull Plug on A/C for Troops in Afghanistan

The Blaze

Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul wants to bring U.S. armed forces home from Iraq and Afghanistan, and one way to achieve that goal might be to pull the plug on their air conditioning. In a statement made during Wednesday’s GOP debate, Paul lamented the “$20 billion” spent pumping AC into tents around Afghanistan and Iraq where American military personnel are stationed.

Paul, who declared that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is broke, offered his idea for addressing the agency’s funding concerns. Paul suggested that the $20 billion spent on troops’ AC should be brought home, where he would then “take ten [billion] off the debt and put ten [billion] into FEMA” or another program like child health care.

“But I tell you if we took AC out of the green zone, our troops would come home and that would make me happy,” Paul declared.

But if our service men and women could not be brought home and instead were to remain in Iraq and Afghanistan, would Paul really want them to go without air conditioning in the sweltering desert?

Tonight Is The Reagan Centennial GOP Candidates Debate

No word yet on whether Gov. Perry will be able to leave the state to take part in tomorrow’s GOP Presidential Debate at the Reagan Presidential Library.

September 6, 2011 Gov. Rick Perry held a press conference in the Austin community of Steiner Ranch Tuesday morning, thanking fire professionals for their help in trying to contain the wildfires throughout central Texas for the past two days.

Perry took an aerial tour of fire damage in Steiner Ranch. He took off by helicopter from Steiner Ranch Elementary School.

The Steiner Ranch fire damaged or destroyed 54 homes. It burned 125 acres. Five firefighters suffered injuries fighting the flames. All of them have since been treated and released.

Perry said there have been 3.6 million acres burned by wildfires in Texas, and about 1,000 homes destroyed, since the wildfire season began in December 2010.

The Governor says there is still a lot of work ahead.


Sept. 7, 2011, at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, Calif. The debate, hosted by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, will also be co-hosted by NBC News and POLITICO.

WHEN: Begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Wednesday, Sept. 7.

It will air live on MSNBC

DEBATE LOCATION: At the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, as a part of the Reagan Centennial Celebration.

MODERATORS: POLITICO Editor-in-chief John F. Harris and NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, with questions from Telemundo's Jose Diaz-Balart.

QUESTIONS FROM READERS: POLITICO has been soliciting questions from readers for the last few weeks and will incorporate them into the debate.

Liberals Create Video Game in Which Tea Partiers are Murdered


Liberals Create Video Game in Which Tea Partiers are Murdered

Pundit Press

The party of civility is at it again.

Refusing to have a legitimate discussion on the merits of each side's economic ideology, the Left has just gone ahead and decided that Tea Partiers are zombies. And those zombies must die!

Thus is the premise of the online video game "Tea Party Zombies Must Die!"...THIS IS THE LINK TO THE ACTUAL GAME WHERE A PERSON CAN KILL TEA PARTY ZOMBIES.

Among those that the Left wants murdered are Brit Hume, Bill O'Reilly, and Sean Hannity:

From Pundit Press

"And, yes, I actually tried to play the game. It was decidedly laggy and decidedly racist (there's a swastika visible within moments of starting your game). I know I shouldn't expect anything better from liberals, but when you're going to make something this offensive,you could at least try to pretend you're making a point."

Obama Campaigns from the Sinking Titanic, Grants Amnesty to Illegals by Fiat

Obama Campaigns from the Sinking Titanic, Grants Amnesty to Illegals by Fiat, Tries To Hide Involvement in Project Gunrunner

by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

As many Americans mourn a jobless Labor Day, Obama is scheduled to give a campaign speech this week to both chambers of Congress on the taxpayers’ dime. The subject will be all the jobs he and his socialist administration have destroyed during the past three years. Let’s see how he spins the fact that no jobs were created in August for the first time since 1945---66 years ago!

This president and his agencies have continued to impose paralyzing new federal regulations on small businesses and done nothing to cut corporate taxes, both of which will be necessary to achieve an economic recovery. Otherwise, businesses will continue to hoard cash to defray the costs of Marxist Obamacare and additional federal regulations. Is it any wonder many businesses continue to move overseas where regulations and taxes are reasonable because other governments know that private sector capitalism is the key to their strength and prosperity? That is contrary to the Marxist ideology of Obama and his corrupt buddies. The upcoming speech will certainly propose more government spending on federal job programs framed as ‘helping the middle class’, rather than catalyzing a private sector recovery.

Most of the shovel-ready government funded jobs promised with the previous trillion dollar stimulus did not materialize since those dollars were paid as kickbacks to the public sector unions which will as usual recycle that money into Obama’s re election campaign. Meantime, Obama this week designated ‘Project Vote’ to handle his re election campaign by mobilizing the dead, convicted felons and illegals to which he has granted amnesty over the objections of Congress.

It seems odd he would choose the name ‘Project Vote’ since the original infamous Project Vote was exposed for election fraud after the 2008 elections in connection with ACORN. This is proof that those on the Left don’t care about morality (knowing right from wrong) and ethics (doing what is acceptable).

The American people who voted for BO continue to wait that ‘hope and change’ they were promised. The rest of us who saw through the charades of the Left from the very beginning are more concerned about the ongoing and increasing lawlessness of Emperor Obama and Chief Enforcer of Injustice Holder, with at least two investigations of critical importance either underway or about to begin: Representative Issa and Senator Grassley continue their investigation of Project Gunrunner in which our own government violated laws in pursuit of their anti-gun agenda by allowing guns to enter Mexico bound for cartels which then were found at murder scenes on either side of the border and included the deaths of at least two border agents.

This week the committee learned that an Arizona Federal chief prosecutor ordered a cover-up of the discovery of these weapons at crime scenes so to not expose the illegal misdeeds of the Administration and its agencies---in particular the Department of Injustice. Despite the Obama administration’s previous denial of knowledge of this scandal, it was found this week that several of his national security personnel in the White House were aware of Project Gunrunner. Issa and Grassley are relentlessly working to find out how high in the DOIJ and White House this goes---who knew and who ordered it.

The other major issue is Obama’s clear violation of the Constitution with respect to enforcement of immigration laws. We all know the Department of Injustice and Homeland Insecurity continue to not enforce our laws but maliciously filed suits against numerous states which have tried to protect themselves from illegal immigration and its expensive and sometimes deadly consequences.

Just recently Obama took this a step further through his constitutionally illegal use of executive powers to enact his own Dream Act which gives amnesty to illegals in order to enlarge his voting base and further destroy America. The Constitution grants lawmaking powers only to the Congress, and the Executive branch must enforce those laws. Rep. Peter King and two other representatives have asked for a committee of Congress to immediately investigate Obama’s illegal actions.

As for Obama’s speech before the Congress, expect more garble about shovel-ready infrastructure projects at taxpayer expense which never worked with the first stimulus. Narcissists like Obama refuse to do what is right but rather whatever is most convenient to achieve their selfish objectives---in this case his re election by offering proposals which on the surface appear reasonable but which discerning minds recognize as politically motivated ploys by Obama to set up scenarios in which GOP resistance to his socialist proposals will be used against them during his campaign. This is one example of how those with Liberal Mental Disorder use lies and manipulation to achieve their ill-conceived goals.

Real Unemployment Rate Rose in August to 16.2% -- 26 Million People

Real Unemployment Rate Rose in August to 16.2% -- 26 Million People


The real unemployment rate actually rose in August, according to the Department of Labor, belying the fact that the official unemployment rate, 9.1 percent, remained flat while the economy did not create any new jobs on net last month.

According to the data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, real unemployment rose to 16.2 percent in August, up from 16.1 percent in July and tying the 2011 record set in June.

The real unemployment rate is comprised of three different measures of the labor force that more accurately reflect who is really unemployed, as opposed to the official unemployment rate, which merely measures those who told the government they were unemployed and looking for work in the past month.

The real unemployment rate is comprised of the official unemployment rate, those employed part-time because they cannot find full-time work, and those marginally attached to the labor force: people who have stopped looking for work but would return to the labor force if jobs were available.

All told, the total number of Americans who are truly unemployed – those that make up the real unemployment rate – is now 26 million people, according to the Labor Department data.

Obama Despersate To Have Baby Killing Pushed, He Cracks Down On Those Doing "sidewalk counseling" Outside Clinic's

Obama Orders DOJ To Enforce Seldom-Used 1994 Law Restricting Abortion Clinic Protests Widely Seen As Blatantly Unconstitutional

Obama's abortion absolutism and the 1st Amendment

Washington Examiner

In 1994, abortion-lobby champion Ted Kennedy passed the Free Access to Clinics Act (FACE), which imposes stricter limitations on peaceful protests of abortion clinics than any other peaceful protest.

This law, which strikes me as pretty darn unconstitutional, has never really been enforced. Tom McClusky at the Family Research Council says the decision to not enforce it was a “gentleman’s agreement”: “The story I normally got from Justice Department, Hill and real world lawyers on both sides of the aisle was that everyone understood the law was unconstitutional. . . .”

But now, NPR reports, Obama is deciding to crack down on those protesting, conducting sidewalk counseling, or even praying for the mothers and their babies.

Here's NPR's report on one of the Obama Administration's targets:

A few blocks from the White House, outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Washington, D.C., Dick Retta has reported for duty in a blue windbreaker, khaki pants belted high and brown shoes with thick soles. He's carrying rosary beads and a packet of brochures filled with information about the dangers of abortion.

"Please don't let them take your child's life. You don't have to. We can and will help you. Don't let them take your child's life. Let us help you," Retta says to a woman entering the clinic.

That front door shuts in his face. But Retta says he's not deterred by that, or by a civil lawsuit the Justice Department filed against him in July. Authorities claim Retta violated the FACE Act by blocking a patient early this year — following her for 35 feet and standing in front of the door.

Retta disputes the allegations.

"We don't block women from coming in. That's not our policy," he says. "I teach it. I teach what I'm doing ... and I say one thing: Never block the women from going in. Never."

Retta, who has seven children and 11 grandkids, says he is moved by his Catholic faith to do what he calls sidewalk counseling. Retta says he has gotten pushed around outside the clinic, too. He says he was standing by the gate and a woman sprayed him with pepper spray in July, putting him "out of commission" for a while.

Obama as a State Senator, voted against a bill requiring doctors to care for babies born after failed abortions (and then misled the media on the matter). As a candidate, he promised his first act would be signing the sweeping "Freedom of Choice Act," which would wipe out nearly all limitations on abortion and abortion subsidies. And then during the budget debates we saw him draw nearly his only line in the sand over Planned Parenthood subsidies.

It's abortion absolutism. Everything else -- free assembly, free speech, conscience protection, and his party's other interests -- they all take a back seat to protecting abortion.

Gov. Rick Perry Unable To Attend The Jim DeMint Freedom Forum Because of Fires Raging Throughout Texas

Perry: 'Never Seen a Wildfire Season Like This'

"I'm not paying attention to politics right now. People's lives are in danger and that's all I care about" -- Governor Rick Perry



Republican presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry did not attend the Palmetto Freedom Forum of GOP candidates Monday , sponsored by Sen. Jim DeMint, and instead returned to Texas to deal with the wildfires in the state, DeMint and the Perry campaign told CNN.

The South Carolina senator's office said they learned of Perry's plans not to attend the Columbia, South Carolina event Monday morning.

"The Governor is in close contact with emergency operations officials regarding fires in Texas, including calls with his emergency management chief this morning," Perry's campaign communications secretary Ray Sullivan told CNN.

"Governor Perry is cancelling the remainder of his South Carolina schedule today (including DeMint Fourm) and his California schedule tomorrow in order to return to Texas ASAP."


This note below was written hours BEFORE Perry spoke on the video above There has been even more damage from the fire as Gov. Perry describes above. . ~ Wild Thing

14,000 acres burned in Bastrop. More than 300 homes lost, and there’s still no containment. A mandatory evacuation has been issued for all circle D County — all homes on Schwantz Ranch Road, Old Potato Road and all Highway 21 homes east to Paige. Also Wilderness Ridge, Cedar Creek, Allen Creek are also being evacuated.

“It’s catastrophic,” Stanford said of the Bastrop County fire. “It’s a major natural disaster.”

There are C-130’s dropping fire retardant and helicopters dropping water from the lake.

This is SO awful - I LOVE Texas - and am so sorry this is happening.

My prayers for all Texans in harms way. This has been such a horrible year here with the fires and drought in Texas.

The whole central part of the state is a tinderbox with no relief in sight.

I know what this feels like to live with fires coming right up to the door of your home, the choppers flying over the house, the smell of smoke so think you can barely breath, your eyes burning like crazy and your heart pounding out of your chest.

Shakeup in Michele Bachmann's Campaign.... Manager Ed Rollins and Her Campaign’s Number Two Man David Polyansky....

Big shakeup in the Michele Bachmann Campaign last night.

Bachmann’s Campaign Manager Ed Rollins is stepping down and will continue in an advisory role. But he will no longer be part of the day-to-day management of the campaign. In the video above, Rollins cited his age and health as reasons why he cannot continue.

However, Bachmann is also losing her campaign’s number two man in David Polyansky:

Rollins is now 68 years old, and served as National Campaign Director for President Ronald Reagan’s 1984 re-election campaign that won 49 out of 50 states.

Rollins said Bachmann is “still in this thing” and is now the “third” candidate. “Legitimately, it’s a Romney-Perry Race.”


On the heels of our report that Michele Bachmann campaign manager Ed Rollins is stepping back into an advisory role, citing health concerns, comes word that his deputy, David Polyansky, is leaving the campaign.

"I wish Michele nothing but the best, and anyone who underestimates her as a candidate does so at their own peril," Polyansky told POLITICO.

But a GOP source familiar with the situation said that Polyansky had "strategic differences on the path forward" with the candidate, who has struggled to gain traction in the last few weeks.

Polyansky and Rollins led the team that brought Bachmann to her Ames Straw Poll win in Iowa, along with a handful of others like veteran pollster Ed Goeas. It wasn't immediately clear who was taking over the top two day-to-day slots.

Bachmann is known for having had an unusually large number of staffers from her congressional office depart in a short time frame, although a campaign spokeswoman said they'd always planned on restructuring.


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

Wows! Ed Rollins really stabbed her in the back with his comment. It speaks to the kind of person that Ed Rollins is that he would dump on her both in terms of compensatory support as well as badmouthing her chances in public on the same day.

Michele is a good person and does not deserve that.

Tax Payer Funded Event...Teamster Leader Jimmy Hoffa Warming Up Crowd For Obama Said on Tea Party: “Let’s Take These Son-of-a-Bitches Out!”

Hoffa on Tea Party: 'Take These Son-of-a-Bitches Out'

FOX News

Cranking up the anti-Tea Party rhetoric, Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa called on workers to "take these son-of-a-bitches out" as he warmed up a crowd Monday in Detroit ahead of President Obama's Labor Day speech.

The rhetoric coming from speakers at the event was already heated before Hoffa took the stage. Hoffa then declared there's a "war on workers" and vowed that organized labor would "remember in November" which lawmakers were opposing the president's agenda.

"We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face -- a war on workers. And you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party," he said. "And there's only one way to beat and win that war -- the one thing about working people is, we like a good fight."

Hoffa called on workers to get involved in opposing Tea Party-aligned lawmakers next November.

"President Obama, this is your army, we are ready to march," Hoffa said. "But everybody here's got to vote. If we go back, and keep the eye on the prize, let's take these son-of-a-bitches out."

On the same day as the rally, Hoffa co-authored a column in the Detroit Free Press that was highly critical of "right wing politicians in Congress." Labor leaders accused them of holding the country "hostage" in order to preserve tax breaks for the wealthy -- a reference to the debt-ceiling debate that lasted through much of the summer.

The union leaders called Washington's focus on deficit reduction "misguided" and urged Congress and the administration to put more energy into job-creation measures like infrastructure spending.


Wild Thing's comment......

So we know who to blame for the broken windows, threats, and intimidation from now until election day don't we.

Half of a dozen Presidential candidates will make their way to South Carolina Monday, for a GOP forum hosted by Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina).

According to CNN, Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman, Herman Cain, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich have agreed to attend the “Palmetto Freedom Forum” in Columbia.

On ABC’s “This Week,” Senator DeMint said he's not going to endorse any candidate for months, and he's waiting to see what they have to say at the forum.

“This forum's going to be very helpful to me and others, because instead of forcing them to answer my questions, we are going to encourage them to define the issues on their own terms,” said DeMint. “This will give us a little bit deeper understanding on how they view the Constitution and their role as President.”

The "Palmetto Freedom Forum" starts at 3:00pm.......CNN and ETV will broadcast the event.

Jim DeMint: It'll Be 'hard' To Watch Obama Speech ~ So True! Obama Is Worst President In US History

DeMint: It'll be 'hard' to watch Obama speech


South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint said Sunday he’s “tired” of President Barack Obama’s speeches and predicted it would be difficult to watch the president’s much anticipated jobs speech on Thursday.

“I’m so tired of his speeches it’s going to be hard for me to watch,” DeMint, a Republican told Candy Crowley on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Last week, Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) — who, like DeMint, affiliates with the tea party — drew fire for declaring he would not attend Obama’s speech, and even calling the president “idiotic.”

DeMint, though, made no such declaration and instead focused his criticism on the expected content of the speech, urging the president to send Congress legislation detailing specific proposals.

“What I’ve heard the president is going to talk about Thursday night is more of the same: extending unemployment benefits, payroll tax cuts,” DeMint said. “I just don’t think those things are going to create jobs.”

DeMint called for “a plan in writing — he needs to send it to us and tell us what it’s going to cost, so not only Congress but the American people can read it, businesses can read it. Without sending something in writing, the president makes all of these grand gestures, and then it doesn’t appear in any legislation, and he’ll blame Congress for not passing something he never sends over.”

The White House said Friday that Obama will release a detailed deficit-cutting plan soon after his jobs speech, answering Republican critics who demanded more specifics during the debt-limit debate.

Obama sticker in urinal draws criticism and laughs

A disturbed 17 News Facebook friend posted picture taken in the bathroom of a restaurant in Bakersfield. It shows a sticker, with a picture of the President, firmly affixed to a porcelain potty.

Some think he's a political whiz, but perhaps this isn't what they had mind.

"It's a cartoon. It's a parody. It's humor," said customer Dave Nance.

There's been a lot of traffic in this bathroom at the Rocket Shop Café. But not for the usual reasons. Word of the cartoon decal has brought a lot of looky loos to this loo.

"I think it's a riot because he's a public figure. He sets himself up for this kind of abuse from being who and what he is," said customer Tom Moore.

John Harmon, the owner of the Rocket Shop Café says the bulls-eye designs showed up in the gentlemen's room about a week ago.

"Why would I take them down? We get a lot of people come out of the bathroom now just laughing like crazy," said Harmon.

But some would say this the president of the united states we're talking about?

"It's a cartoon character in the urinal. If we had the president in there it would be more fun. Somebody could have put a fly down in there. Same thing. It would have been a target. And actually I think the floors in there are a little cleaner than they used to be," said Harmon.

John Harmon says he has no plans to take the decals down and he has yet to receive any complaints from his customers. We tried to contact the man who posted the picture on Facebook but he did not immediately return our calls.

Gov. Rick Perry Campaigned in New Hampshire Saturday

Texas Gov. Rick Perry campaigned in New Hampshire today, and CNN reports he had a suggestion for President Obama and his big “Jobs Speech” this coming Thursday Night:

CNN political ticker

Chichester, New Hampshire (CNN) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry focused blame for the economic slump squarely on President Barack Obama in a pair of speeches Saturday, as his stump speech continues to take shape.

Reading from notes, the folksy leader launched a blistering assault on the president for failing to turn around the country's fiscal struggles, and offered his record in Texas as his recipe for success.

"It's time for a change," he told a group of largely undecided Republican voters in Manchester, New Hampshire. "And I'm not talking about the rhetoric of change, I'm talking about a record of change."

Perry said he had created jobs in Texas, while the president had expanded the role of the federal government without creating long-term jobs, and had taken the country in the wrong direction, he said.

He also had some advice for the president as he prepares to announce a jobs plan next week.

"If the president wants to make a good jobs speech, he needs to stand up in front of the American people and say we're going to repeal 'Obamacare,' " Perry told an audience in Chichester, to thunderous applause.

At the house party in Chichester, Perry spoke emotionally about service members fighting in foreign wars. He said the country should spend more money caring for its veterans. On the subject of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Perry said there should be a "national conversation" over the next year before the election, but said he did not favor setting timetables for withdrawal.

Perry was asked at each crowded event about preventing illegal immigration, and said it was the federal government's responsibility to aid in border protection by sending National Guard troops.

Gerald Easson, of Farmington, said he was impressed by the governor's candor.

"Talk is cheap. I'm going by facts. What they've accomplished, what they can do," he said. "Everything he's tackled, he's accomplished it."

State Rep. Al Baldasaro, who has yet to endorse a candidate, had a similar response.

"He looks you in the eye and he tells you how it is," Baldasaro said. "He's not looking over my shoulder. He's talking to me when I ask him a question."

Baldasaro said he asked for more information about Perry's record on caring for veterans in Texas to help him make a decision about supporting the governor.



He may have been 2,000 miles from the border, but Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry’s immigration record in Texas quickly became the focus in New Hampshire Saturday afternoon.

Speaking to hundreds of Granite State voters at a private reception, the Texas governor was asked whether he supported a fence along the Mexican border.

“No, I don’t support a fence on the border,” he said, while referring to the long border in Texas alone. “The fact is, it’s 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso. Two things: How long you think it would take to build that? And then if you build a 30-foot wall from El Paso to Brownsville, the 35-foot ladder business gets real good.”

Instead, Perry said he supported “strategic fencing” and National Guard troops to prevent illegal immigration and violence from Mexican drug cartels.


Rick Perry talking immigration with Arpaio, Sheriff Joe tweeted and Sheriff Joe also posted about it at his Facebook page.

"He looks you in the eye and he tells you how it is," Baldasaro said. "He's not looking over my shoulder. He's talking to me when I ask him a question."

I like what this person said. I think that is important. I have met politicians over the years and too few will do this, most of them are looking to see the next person to shake hands with.

And I have to say the way he explains about the border I’m alright with his explanation. He explained this on the Mark Levin Show, and if there are other ways to accomplish the same thing, I’m ok with it.

The Texans I know that live near the border say ...."they need the Rio Grande for our farmers and ranchers. Any Texan that knows anything about our border knows a fence will not work here. It's not true that Governor Perry "prefers open borders."

I also love that Gov. Perry called Sheriff Joe yesterday. I have read several times that Perry is not closed on discussions of learning more and we know he has already shown when he made a mistake he said so. This is a good man and I think he will listen to we the people.

Rick Perry’s Campaign Tries to Raise Cash off Obama’s Golf Game ~ GREAT Idea!!!!

Rick Perry’s Campaign Tries to Raise Cash off Obama’s Golf Game

ABC News

Rick Perry’s latest fundraising appeal looks to raise some money off President Obama’s golf game. In an email to supporters Thursday, Rob Johnson, Perry’s campaign manager, asked potential donors to open their pocketbooks to the amount of $76 — exactly the number of rounds of golf Obama has played since entering the White House.

“In honor of his prodigious golf habit, I ask you to donate $76 today – a dollar for each round of golf Obama has played since becoming president,” Johnson wrote.

A golfing theme exists throughout the donation request email, tying Obama’s handling of the economy to a round of golf.

“31 months, 12 days and 76 rounds of golf later, we still await the president’s plan to create jobs. Or, more precisely, his next plan following the failed stimulus that spent our children’s inheritance, exploded the debt and led to greater unemployment. Now the president wants a mulligan,” Johnson wrote in the email.

“Help us yell a pre-emptive ‘fore’ before the president takes a three-iron to the economy and makes matters worse.”

Perry, who has claimed the frontrunner title after catapulting to the top of polls this week, has been on a fundraising blitz since the start of his campaign nearly three weeks ago.

He crisscrossed Texas this week, attending fundraisers in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. He also crossed the Texas border into Louisiana and Oklahoma to raise some cash as well. The Perry campaign plans to hold fundraisers in California and New York later in the month.

And what about Perry’s golf game? The Texas governor thanked Triton financial for sponsoring the 2011 Champions Tour in Austin and was even paired with a pro-golfer in a 2007 tournament that benefited Shriners Hospitals for Children. But the reviews of Perry’s golf game didn’t bode well for the Texas governor.

“Perry did, however, bring along a security contingent complete with those Secret Service-type earpieces, which would have been interesting if it wasn’t so laughable given the only thing most knew about him was that he was the guy you backed up 20 yards from each time he addressed a shot,” a Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist wrote.

Perry spokesman Mark Miner told ABC News that the governor had golfed before but didn’t play regularly.

Sarah Palin Arrives In Iowa

URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) — Sarah Palin is making a surprise appearance at a suburban Des Moines restaurant.

And she was greeted there Friday night with chants of “Run, Sarah, run!”

When asked about the current field of GOP presidential hopefuls...Palin mischievously claimed that another candidate could still join the fray.

“Happy with the field of candidates,” Palin said. "I always think that there’s room for more, though, because spirited debate and more competition will allow an even better discourse and a more rigorous discourse that the public deserves.”

The event is 11am to 2pm Central time - Palin schedule to speak starting around 1:15pm Central time

CSPAN is carrying the whole event - CNN and Fox and MSNBC will pick it up when Palin speaks plus there will be multiple streaming videos online

Accompanied by husband Todd, Palin worked the crowded restaurant, shaking hands, posing for pictures and hugging babies.

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

The article says "Sarah Palin is making a surprise appearance". I am not sure how that works to be a surprise, since there was a large group of people there waiting for her and also a podium and a gentlemen that made a speech. But that is OK I just find it odd how the article states that. LOL it is OK it is just funny to me.

I am wishing Sarah all the best whatever she decides to do. Maybe she will say she is entering the race in her speech today, no one knows. It is up to Sarah.

As you all know I have chosen to give my support to Gov. Rick Perry, he has entered the race and wants to make the scarifces it takes to work to save our country.

That is not to lesson what a terrific person Sarah is and has been for our country.

Sarah's speech today is something I do not want to miss, it should be fantastic.

Rick Perry on Mark Levin Show, Sept 1, 2011

Great interview.

Perry opposes the federal DREAM Act, explains his stand on in-state tuition and border control. He covers the usual topics such as federal overreach, tort reform, and Texas’ job performance as well.

Levin calls Perry a “solid conservative.” Levin pointed out that some have been attacking him ( Perry) but they have lost sight of the fact that Reagan was attacked as well for not being the extreme conservative that they thought he should be when he was running for office.

Wild Thing's comment......

I really like how when he is asked a question he answers it, directly and with no beating around the bush. He does not use the avoiding way of answering like so many in office do all the time.

Mark Levin is also right about how Reagan was treated when he ran for office. Then those same people joined the rest of the people like myself after they saw how awesome Reagan was as a President. I am not sure what that is called... maybe being a political purist or something. It goes beyond not wanting a rino, it is expecting perfection and that is just not going to happen from anyone.

I hope you all get a chance to listen to the video above, it is worth it.

C-130 Rick Perry: He Flew The World Before Politics

C-130 Rick Perry: He flew the world before politics

Abilene Online

By Sarah Kleiner Varble

Rank: Retired as a captain

Hometown: Haskell

Crew job: C-130 aircraft commander

Served in the Air Force: 1972 to 1977

Dyess AFB tour: March 4, 1974, to Feb. 28, 1977

His story:Way back before he was governor of Texas, Rick Perry had two choices as a young member of the Air Force.

He could either follow his dream and work toward becoming an instructor pilot in the sleek T-38, or he could fly the hulking C-130, planes that affectionately were referred to as "trash haulers" by Perry and his cohorts.

"There was no telling what you were going to haul around on any given day, from high value cargo like human beings to the colonel's kitty litter," Perry told the Reporter-News in a recent phone interview.

He wanted to fly T-38s, but not badly enough to move to Selma, Ala., where he would have been assigned. So, Perry chose to stay in Texas and fly the C-130.

In 1974, he moved to Dyess Air Force Base, about 55 miles from his hometown of Haskell, and began a career that took him all over the world and shaped his political future.

"It was one of the great adventures of my life," Perry said. "I had a fairly pedestrian life until I was 23 years old."

Perry could count on one hand the number of trips he had taken out of his home state by the time he graduated from Texas A&M University, but everything changed when he joined the Air Force.

Flying C-130s, Perry lived in Germany and Saudi Arabia. He flew in Central and South America, North Africa and all over Europe.

"I saw all of these different types of governments and I made the connections to how the people acted and looked, and it became abundantly clear to me that, at that particular point in time, that America was this very unique place and that our form of democracy was very rare," Perry said. " ... That was the greatest gift I received from my years of being in the military, and they really shaped my outlook on the rest of my life."

Perry retired from the Air Force in 1977 — but not without one last adventure.

As his final days approached, Perry was assigned to a mission to "haul trash" to Bermuda with a relatively inexperienced crew.

"I'm sure the young guys stayed up a little longer than the older guy, which would be me at 26 years old," Perry said, and they fell asleep on the way back to Abilene.

About the time the plane reached Atlanta, a fire light for the No. 3 engine flashed once. And then it flashed again.

Perry poked his co-pilot as the light reappeared and held steady on red.

Using the headset, he asked the loadmaster to take a look at the engine from the window and about that time, the engine exploded and blew a tail pipe off the plane.

"He started screaming that we were on fire and that we were all going to die," Perry said. "The aircraft operated as advertised and flies amazingly well on three engines."

Perry and his crew were stuck at Pope Air Force Base while awaiting a new engine. With three days left in his enlistment, Perry called the command post at Dyess and informed them that they would have to send a new pilot along with the engine if they didn't hurry.

"I said, 'In three days, I'm not Captain Perry anymore, I'm Mr. Perry, and I'm going home," Perry said.

The engine arrived and the plane returned to Dyess in time for Perry to retire Feb. 28, as planned.

He went on to be elected to the state House of Representatives, agriculture commissioner, lieutenant governor and, finally, governor of Texas.


19-year-old Rick Perry 1969 TX A&M Yearbook, Aggieland

Perry attended Texas A&M University, where he was a member of the Corps of Cadets, a member of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity and one of A&M's five yell leaders (a popular Texas A&M tradition analogous to male cheerleaders).

He interned with the Southwestern Company during the summer time as a door-to-door book salesman where he honed his communication skills. Perry graduated in 1972 with a degree in animal science.

While at Texas A&M University Perry successfully completed a static line parachute jump at Ags Over Texas (a United States Parachute Association dropzone), the dropzone that was then in operation at Coulter Field (KCFD) in Bryan, Texas, just north of Texas A&M (in College Station, Texas).


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

I like that he served our country. And I have been reading how he has made trips to visit the troops in Iraq etc.

Please note that when it says he retired from the Air Force that is the author of the article not Rick Perry saying that. Obviously he did not retire after 5 years, but I suppose the author did not know that. I just wanted to point that out to the lefties that read and lurk at this blog and then try to spread lies like they do with Sarah Palin. etc.

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

Texas Governor Shoots, Kills Coyote Who Threatened Dog a Lab

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry has a message for wily coyotes out there: Don't mess with my dog.

Perry says he needed just one shot from his laser-sighted pistol to take down a coyote that was menacing his dog during an early morning jog in an undeveloped area near Austin.

Perry told The Associated Press he sometimes carries his pistol, loaded with hollow-pointed bullets, when he jogs on trails because he's scared of snakes -- and that he'd seen coyotes in that area.

When the coyote came out of the brush toward his daughter's labrador retriever puppy on a February jog, he charged it and shot it with his .380 Ruger pistol.

"Don't attack my dog or you might get shot ... if you're a coyote," Perry said

James Carville: Whitehouse "Out Of Bounds" To Schedule Address During GOP Debate

"I do think this is a really big debate and I think the White House was out of bounds in trying to schedule a speech during a debate," James Carville said on ABC's "Good Morning America."

"Given a choice between watching a debate and the speech I would have watched the debate and I'm not even a Republican or even close to being a Republican," Carville said.

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

Heh heh.....I had to laugh when see he said he plans on watching the debate even if Obama did give his speech that night.

LOL scary to agree with with Carville.

I will never forget how Carville ranted about Obama during the Gulf oil explosion that happened.

Arrogant Obama Not Following Protocol Tried Pulling A Fast One To Do A Speech During The Time Set For GOP Debate


Jay Carney Asked If Timing Of Human Sewage Obama’s Joint Session Speech Might Upset Nancy Reagan


Carney grants NBC permission to reschedule debate....grants permission?????? WTH ~ Wild Thing

"I respectfully request the opportunity to address a joint session of Congress on Sept. 7, 2011 at 8 p.m.," Obama wrote in a letter sent Wednesday to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney says the timing of the speech is not aimed at overshadowing the next Republican debate, which is cosponsored by NBC News and Politico, and is scheduled to air at the same time as the planned presidential address.

"It is coincidental," Carney said. "It is one debate of many [that will air] on one channel of many... [and] there are many other factors here" to consider when scheduling a major address from the president, he added.

Carney gave NBC his permission to reschedule the Republican debate so it doesn't conflict with the president's speech, saying "if the network so chose and the candidates so chose" to reschedule, "that would be completely fine with us."


Boehner rejects Obama’s request to address Congress

Speaker John Boehner has rejected Obama’s request to address a joint session of Congress on September 7th to discuss his jobs plan. Boehner has asked that Obama consider the following night instead.


Wild Thing's comment.....

Thursday is the start of the NFL season. Boehner invited Obama to give his speech a night no one be watching it.

LOL hahaha so rich !!!!

Jay Carney said, “It is coincidental.”

Please oh please you can do better then THAT lie. That is insulting to think anyone would believe that.

We keep seeing again and again the arrogance from Obama as well as his Carney jerk. It must be a something they have to have to qualify to be a democrat.

DEMOCRAT Indiana Rep. Andre Carson Stands By His Dangerous Violent Rhetoric and Lies: Declares 'War'

Far left Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) stood by his comments yesterday that tea party patriots want to hang blacks from trees. He made the outrageous comments during a speech last week in Florida.


From the video: “This is WAR” Congressional Black Causes’ Travels American Cities Using Dangerous Violent Rhetoric: Declares ‘War’ on Racist Tea Party, Says Tea Party Wants To Lynch Blacks, Calls for Bank Runs, Civil Unrest in Their Neighborhoods and Homes

As members of the Congressional Black Caucus converged in Los Angeles for its final national job fair series, one of its ranking members responded to his own previous inflammatory comments in Miami about the tea party, comparing their movement to Jim Crow laws that segregated and marginalized African Americans in society.

“Some of these folks in Congress would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree,” Carson said, according to the audio.

On Wednesday, Carson told CNN he stood by those remarks.

“Well, I wasn’t talking about the entire tea party. I think the tea party is absolutely right when they call for increased transparency in government, when they call for a cutback on excessive government spending. I am deeply concerned about some elements of the tea party who are extremist and who have reflected a mentality going back to the John Birch society, going back to George Wallace’s Dixiecrats,” Carson said.


Tea Party congressman to Black Caucus members: ‘Get a grip’

The Hill

A Republican member of the House Tea Party Caucus on Wednesday countered recent inflammatory remarks by members of the Congressional Black Caucus against the Tea Party.

“I’m a TEA Party caucus member and have spoken at two tea party rallies. I am also NOT a racist. Maxine & Andre — get a grip,” Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.) tweeted.

Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) both directed harsh remarks at the Tea Party movement last week.

Carson accused the Tea Party members in Congress of wanting to see blacks “hanging from a tree.”

Waters said at an event in California, “The Tea Party can go straight to hell.”


Herman Cain Responds To Andre Carson's Comment: "It Was Despicable, Disgusting and Desperate...They Have Taken The Race Card To a New Low"

Herman Cain fires back at the congressman's comment about the tea party. Here's the video from last night on Greta's show on FOX.


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

My goodness, it always amazes me how there are people like this Andre Carson in this world and even more so how they work their way into our government. But you know what....his hate is exactly like Obama's. So much hate!!!

If someone said this BS to my face, in person I would laugh at them and then tell them how totally stupid they are and to go to the Library and learn the true history of Blacks and the two political parties. How it had been the Republicans NOT the Democrats that have stood up for them.

You know what that is what should happen to anyone when they mouth off like this. They should be forced to sit in a class on this subject. Remember the things I posted about Black Republican Association Chairman Frances Rice . She was in the Army and also write awesome articles and her goal is also to educate blacks on the true history.
