You can't call everyone a nut just because they speak of a government overthrow. Lots of bloggers sniffing at this from Newsmax, which has been removed, but speaks of a possible military overthrow.
There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America's military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the "Obama problem." Don't dismiss it as unrealistic.
America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn't mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:
Officers swear to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." Unlike enlisted personnel, they do not swear to "obey the orders of the president of the United States."
Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterp…
"Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.
Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it "Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold."
Which is why I'm calling November 4th, 2010 and 2010 two days of revolution. Either the American people vote Barack Obama and his socialists friends out of office, or get ready to bow to the dear leader.
Not that it would matter to the jump-to-anything-bad-that-happens-is-a-rightwing-conspiracy, but it's a fact. Clay County is solid Republican, via Wiki:
The county has been solidly Republican for decades. In the last 16 years the only Republican to receive less than 60% was Bob Dole, who still won the county by nearly 25%. In 2008 John McCain received 77.5% of the vote.
But another fact is that he wasn't killed because he was a census worker.
The hanging of Bill Sparkman according to two sources within the KBI, Sparkman stumbled onto a meth lab and was killed because "that's what they do with you when you're in the wrong place.
Big Creek, where Sparkman was killed, is on the Kentucky State Police's list for meth labs, and in fact the address of the lab, 5693 S. Hwy 66 in Big Creek, isn't far from where he was found.
In fact Clay County is infested with with an abundance of meth labs and marijuana fields, and it's amazing that the Census Bureau wou…
As expected John Podesta being appointed to look into ACORN's corruption is about as worthless as screen doors on a submarine. His Center for Communist American Progress is all about blaming the right, when the problems with ACORN have originated and continue with the philosophy of the left.
But why stop with ACORN? That Podesta, who ran Barack Obama's transition team, is in charge in looking into ACORN's (who Obama used to lawyer for) activities is outrageous if not an insult to the taxpayers of America.
Indeed the Center for American Progress has it's own shady past, being conceived through meetings between communist, Morton Halperin and Nazi Sympathizer George Soros. Halperin is also a senior advisor in Soro's Open Society Institute. Here's a map of his associations:
From this organization came CAP's chief propaganda wing Media Matters.
A huge part of CAP's funding comes from the Democracy Alliance, a group of some 80 wealthy liberals who hav…
"ACORN filed suit today in Maryland against conservative filmmakers James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles and conservative Web site Breitbart.com for secretly taping the organization’s employees at its Baltimore office.
In the complaint, ACORN alleges that the filmmakers entered into the organization’s offices in July with a “hidden camera and microphone” and taped employees Tonja Thompson and Shera Williams. Both employees are listed as plaintiffs on the complaint, filed in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City.
The crux of the lawsuit centers around a Maryland law which makes it illegal to tape someone without their consent – ACORN is alleging O’Keefe and Giles did so. ACORN is asking for $500,000 in damages to be awarded to each of the employees filmed by O'Keefe and Giles, and ACORN itself wants $1 million in damages."
You'll remember back in the 90s Food Lion sued ABC news over a report and won 5 million dollars, but it was later reduced to two bucks. In othe…
By all accounts a great speech!"A number of people who heard the speech in a packed hotel ballroom, which was closed to the media, said Mrs. Palin spoke from notes for 90 minutes and that she was articulate, well-prepared and even compelling.
“The speech was wide-ranging, very balanced, and she beat all expectations,” said Doug A. Coulter, head of private equity in the Asia-Pacific region for LGT Capital Partners.
“She didn’t sound at all like a far-right-wing conservative. She seemed to be positioning herself as a libertarian or a small-c conservative,” he said, adding that she mentioned both Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. “She brought up both those names.”
..Mr. Goodé, an African-American who said he did some campaign polling for President Obama, said Mrs. Palin mentioned President Obama three times on Wednesday.
“And there was nothing derogatory in it, no sleight of hand, and believe me, I was listening for that,” he said, adding that Mrs. Palin referred to Mr. Oba…
Missed his calling.
"Simply put, Barack Obama is loved at the UN because he largely fails to advance real American leadership. This is a dangerous strategy of decline that will weaken US power and make her far more vulnerable to attack."Q&O:
"And, frankly, he fits there much better than he does here, because the UN is a palace of speeches with little or no action. It is becoming clear to many of us that the proper job for Barack Obama isn’t President of the United States, where you’re actually expected to turn your speeches into action, but Secretary General of the UN, where speechifying is the ultimate action – well, that and spending donor money, covering up for peacekeepers who rape those they’re there to protect or “oil for food” and type scandals, and generally denouncing the UN’s host country."
"Cantor, who serves as the chief whip for his party, has said that he cannot support a health reform bill with a public option. But despite his political opposition to government insurance programs, Cantor then emphasized to Churchill that every American should be given an “option” for health care, including a government program:
CHURCHILL: I have a very close relative, a woman in her early forties, who did have a wonderful, high-paying job, owns her own home and is a real contributing member of society. She lost her job. Just a couple of weeks ago, she found out that she has tumors in her belly and that she needs an operation. Her doctors told her that they are growing and that she needs to get this operation quickly. She has no insurance.
[...] CANTOR: First of all I guess I would ask what the situation is in terms of income eligibility and the existing programs that are out there. Because if we look at the uninsured that…
Lefties are trying to make it appear that it's not only ACORN who wears the badge of corruption among other government funded organizations.
"Last week, the House and Senate voted to prohibit the federal government from awarding contracts and grants to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a national network of community-based organizations that advocate for low-income families.
Congress rushed to cut off all federal funding to ACORN days after several ACORN employees were caught on camera giving advice to a couple posing as a prostitute and a pimp on ways to evade the law.
The House’s bill is called the “Defund ACORN Act”. The bill specifically targets ACORN, but it also applies to “any organization” or its employees who are charged with violating federal or state election, campaign finance or lobbying disclosure laws or filing a fraudulent form with any federal or state regulatory agency.
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) is particularly interested…
So speaketh the KING!
"President Obama's central message to the Israeli and Palestinian leaders in New York today was simple, a U.S. official said: He's running out of patience.
"The President of the United States is impatient," said the senior U.S. official. "That's what he told them."
Never stand between a King and his Waffles!
Now, again, repeat after me, "Glenn Beck is a Performer, NOT the Voice of the Conservative Movement".
Saying that I can't say that I'd agree that John McCain would have been a worst president than Obama, simply because I don't believe that when it's all said and done that it will be possible to go lower.
But for pundits to get all huffy about it is a little more staging than reality. I like Levin but you can't help that part of his anger isn't with Beck per-se but with his popularity.
Trust me there's a lot of "diva" in this business, even among men.
So let's not forget that while we appreciate Beck, Limbaugh, Levin, Hannity, O'Reilly, they aren't leaders or voices of the conservative movement, they're simply performers - thats all.
If you want to see the real leaders of the movement, look in the mirror.
"No one shifted an armchair, moved a flower arrangement or asked an unexpected question.
President Obama gave five back-to-back television interviews broadcast on Sunday that were as tightly choreographed — and eerily similar — as the multiple Magritte bowler-hatted men milling in the remake of “The Thomas Crown Affair.”
The president’s talk show grand slam, conversations with CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS and Univision, all taped on Friday in the Roosevelt Room, was a remarkable — and remarkably overt — display of media management. Mr. Obama even doled out equal doses of presidential charm, chuckling ruefully about “rambunctious” protesters to Bob Schieffer of CBS and speaking self-deprecatingly to George Stephanopoulos of ABC, conceding that he had not presented his health care proposals in a way that allowed people to put “their whole arms around it.”
“And that’s been a case where I have been humbled, and I just keep on trying harder,” he said. “Because I — I really think it’s…
As promised, Andrew Breitbart reports on a NEA conference calls with Big Hollywood's Patrick Courrielche, artists and reps from the Obama administration.
"On Thursday August 6th, I was invited by the National Endowment for the Arts to attend a conference call scheduled for Monday August 10th hosted by the NEA, the White House Office of Public Engagement, and United We Serve. The call would include “a group of artists, producers, promoters, organizers, influencers, marketers, taste-makers, leaders or just plain cool people to join together and work together to promote a more civically engaged America and celebrate how the arts can be used for a positive change!” Read the rest. The question now is whether the Obama administration used public funds to push their agenda on healthcare and other items? If true this is a major scandal, and as you know the coverup is often worse than the crime.
"Barack Obama has demanded the Pentagon conduct a radical review of US nuclear weapons doctrine to prepare the way for deep cuts in the country's arsenal, the Guardian can reveal.
Obama has rejected the Pentagon's first draft of the "nuclear posture review" as being too timid, and has called for a range of more far-reaching options consistent with his goal of eventually abolishing nuclear weapons altogether, according to European officials.
Those options include:
• Reconfiguring the US nuclear force to allow for an arsenal measured in hundreds rather than thousands of deployed strategic warheads.
• Redrafting nuclear doctrine to narrow the range of conditions under which the US would use nuclear weapons.
• Exploring ways of guaranteeing the future reliability of nuclear we…
You know I'm not going to standby and let a doof like Rick Sanchez slander me beloved Fox News. It's time to meet the real Rick Sanchez.
Back in 1992, in the wake of Hurricane Andrew as a 911 Dispatcher working in Homestead Florida, we witnessed first hand the hackery of Rick Sanchez. Running out into the rain to act as though he were "roughing it", only to run back to his trailer when the lights were off. The original media male Diva, he predates Perez Hilton.
I could go on, and I just might. As I said before we know how this coward left a man to die after running over him while drunk. His career should have been over then, but friends in high places bailed him out. But that was 19 years ago, but there is much more to share. This video parody speaks loads about just what kind of reporter Sanchez is.
Andrew Breitbart is promising a "blockbuster" this week in relation to the ACORN scandal. Here's part one:
And Part Two:
Obama said today that he "welcomes an investigation", but so did Nixon. I mean there is always the feeling that you will be somehow protected against being "connected".
We'll see what Andrew comes up with. I'm curious.
Speculation brews over at The Green Room.
"WASHINGTON — President Obama has sent a request to Gov. David A. Paterson that he withdraw from the New York governor’s race, fearing that Mr. Paterson cannot recover from his dismal political standing, according to two senior administration officials and a New York Democratic operative with direct knowledge of the situation.
The decision to ask Mr. Paterson to step aside was proposed by political advisers to Mr. Obama, but approved by the president himself, one of the administration officials said.
“Is there concern about the situation in New York? Absolutely,” the second administration official said Saturday evening. “Has that concern been conveyed to the governor? Yes.”
The administration officials and the Democratic operative spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions with the governor were intended to be confidential.
The president’s request was conveyed to the Mr. Paterson by Representative Gregory W. Meeks, a Queens Democrat, who has developed a strong …
Ah but can Mr. Holder handle the truth?
"ACORN is in very deep, very public trouble, and the U.S. attorney general should appoint an independent prosecutor to investigate. What we know so far is due entirely to two amateur reporters, James E. O'Keefe III, 25, and Hannah Giles, 20, who managed to videotape a web of corrupt practices in ACORN offices. Dressed as a pimp and prostitute, O'Keefe and Giles walked into ACORN offices from New York to California and simply asked for business advice. ACORN officials were happy to provide it and were secretly recorded explaining exactly how to evade the law and scam the government. The tapes were riveting. Fox News rolled out a new one each night for a week, creating a firestorm of outrage and a burgeoning political scandal.
ACORN employees, without raising an eyebrow, much less calling the police, explained how the young sex workers could label themselves "performance artists," underreport their income, evade taxes, frau…
I don't know what's more fascinating, the John Edwards story itself or the incredible lack of media coverage or the stupidity of the reporting thereof.
"CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — The story of the spectacular rise and fall of John Edwards, with its sordid can’t-look-away dimensions, is moving slowly but deliberately to its conclusion here in North Carolina.
Mr. Edwards, the one-term senator who came close to being elected vice president in 2004 and ran a credible campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, remains largely secluded at his 100-acre estate here.
But a federal grand jury in nearby Raleigh is investigating whether any crimes were committed in connection with campaign laws in an effort to conceal his extramarital affair with a woman named Rielle Hunter. At the same time, Mr. Edwards is moving toward an abrupt reversal in his public posture; associates said in interviews that he is considering declaring that he is the father of Ms. Hunter’s 19-mont…
"WASHINGTON — As President Obama welcomes world leaders to the United States this week, he has gone a long way toward meeting his goal of restoring the country’s international standing. Foreign counterparts flock to meet with him, and polls show that people in many countries feel much better about the United States.
But eight months after his inauguration, all that good will so far has translated into limited tangible policy benefits for Mr. Obama. As much as they may prefer to deal with Mr. Obama instead of his predecessor, George W. Bush, foreign leaders have not gone out of their way to give him what he has sought.
European allies still refuse to send significantly more troops to Afghanistan. The Saudis basically ignored Mr. Obama’s request for concessions to Israel, while Israel rebuffed his demand to stop settlement expansion. North Korea defied him by testing a nuclear weapon. Japan elected a party less friendly to the United States. Cuba has done little to liberali…
They don't call it the "looney left" for nothing.
"That being John F. Kennedy, who was gunned down in Dallas, of course.
I've been thinking a lot of Kennedy and Dallas as I've watched the increasingly violent rhetorical attacks on Obama be unfurled. As Americans yank their kids of class in order to save them from being exposed to the President of the United States who only wanted to urge them to excel in the classroom. And as unvarnished hate and name-calling passed for health care 'debate' this summer.
The radical right, aided by a GOP Noise Machine that positively dwarfs what existed in 1963, has turned demonizing Obama--making him into a vile object of disgust--into a crusade. It's a demented national jihad, the likes of which this country has not seen in modern times.
But I've been thinking about Dallas in 1963 because I've been recalling the history and how that city stood as an outpost for the radical right, which never tried to…
Coming from a guy who killed a man while driving drunk and left the scene of the accident.
It happened on Dec. 10, 1990. Mr. Sanchez, seriously drunk behind the wheel, with his dad as passenger, was leaving a Miami Dolphins game. He had barely left the stadium parking area before he hit a man who was running between cars, and who (unfortunately) was also drunk.
Undoubtedly helped by invisible friends on the police force, Sanchez was not charged with
causing the accident, but was later charged with (and pleaded no contest to) DUI.
But here's the cowardly part: Sanchez initially left the scene of the accident for 2 full hours.
One local report said he first went home to get his license and fell asleep. (Yeah, right.)
Anyway, by the time he meandered back to the scene and his dilly-dallying cop friends
tested him for alcohol, it was at least four hours after the accident. Even with all his friends helping him, Sanchez's blood still registered .15 -- way above the…
"Jake Tapper, on Twitter this morning, took issue with a Fox News ad in today’s Washington Post, that he says is “asserting that every other channel ‘missed’ the story of the 912 march. Demonstrably untrue.”
He pointed out that Yunji de Nies, his ABC colleague at the White House, covered last weekend’s protest.
But even that wasn't enough for some, and after a back and forth on Twitter, Tapper wrote that it was his “last tweet defending a fact.”
“To the non-reality based community, have a great day and nice weekend,” he wrote."
The only "non-reality based" person is is Jake Tapper. Fact is that had this been a war protest, or some other lefty gathering you would have given it wall to wall coverage. Covering isn't sending an assistant - an intern - to cover an event for five minutes, it's front page and that's what this event deserved. Again, when Bush was president and there were protest ABC threw out the stops.
"President Obama said this week that his health care plan won't cover illegal immigrants, but argued that's all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage. He also staked out a position that anyone in the country legally should be covered - a major break with the 1996 welfare reform bill, which limited most federal public assistance programs only to citizens and longtime immigrants.
"Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don't simply believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken," Mr. Obama said Wednesday evening in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. "That's why I strongly support making sure folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else.
Mr. Obama added, "If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing …
Well that didn't take long. First Obama screws our Eastern European allies out of a missile defense, now?
"VIENNA (AP) - Experts at the world's top atomic watchdog are in agreement that Tehran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and is on the way to developing a missile system able to carry an atomic warhead, according to a secret report seen by The Associated Press."
George Bush was right. "This is a dangerous world,' .... this cat [Obama] isn't remotely qualified to handle it. This guy has no clue, I promise you'."
"WASHINGTON -- The White House is scrapping a Bush-era plan for an Eastern European missile-defense shield, saying a redesigned defensive system would be cheaper, quicker and more effective against the threat from Iranian missiles.
"After an extensive process, I have approved the unanimous recommendations of my secretary of defense and my joint chiefs of staff to strengthen America's defenses against ballistic-missile attack," President Barack Obama said in an announcement Thursday morning.
The previous administration's plans will be changed, moving away from the installation of a missile-defense shield in the Czech Republic and Poland in the near future. A second phase to begin in 2015 could result in missiles being placed on land in Eastern Europe.
"Our new missile defense architecture in Europe will provide stronger, smarter and swifter defenses of American forces and America's allies," Mr. Obama said. "It is more compr…
Somehow being called a "racist" by an anti-semetic old fart doesn't really bother me. Carter has long since lost relativity anything remotely American and indeed it would be better if he fell off a cliff, got run over by a rabbit or something.
What's even more telling is that the mainstream media let's him get away with it.
But this stuff about being racist if you think Obama's wrong is simple nonsense and indeed it's racist on it's own merits. If Condi Rice were President Carter would be reverting to his ancient Southern ancestry and telling us she'd be better on the farm harvesting peanuts.
He was a disgrace 35 years ago, he continues to be so.
But he is simply repeating the new "mantra" from the left. Of course the charge of "racism" bilge-water and is especially insulting to the American people, but more than that it's another example of just how bad liberals have taken their identity politics.
You have to wonder. During the Democratically controlled hissy fit over Joe Wilson today, Chair Woman Louise Slaughter enacted these new Committee Rules.
Under section 370 of the House Rules and Manual it has been held that a Member could:
refer to the government as “something hated, something oppressive.”refer to the President as “using legislative or judicial pork.”refer to a Presidential message as a “disgrace to the country.”refer to unnamed officials as “our half-baked nitwits handling foreign affairs.”
Likewise, it has been held that a member could not:
call the President a “liar.”call the President a “hypocrite.”describe the President’s veto of a bill as “cowardly.”charge that the President has been “intellectually dishonest.”refer to the President as “giving aid and comfort to the enemy.”refer to alleged “sexual misconduct on the President’s part.”
Ok, that last one is interesting. So what is Ms. Slaughter expecting to come out in the future on Barack Obama's "allege…
As you know by now ACORN has lost it's funding through the Senate, now it's comes to light that they have not been operating legally in Maryland.
"Last week, we saw some pretty disturbing activities revealed in the undercover footage from ACORN Housing’s Baltimore office. By any measure of conduct, the actions of ACORN’s employees should never have happened. It turns out the actions shouldn’t have happened for another, very simple, reason: ACORN can’t legally operate in the state of Maryland.
According to the following documents, ACORN, Inc.–the parent organization of all things ACORN–forfeited its corporate charter in Maryland in 2006. ACORN Housing forfeited its corporate charter in 2008. Any ACORN office in the state of Maryland is potentially operating illegally.
The Maryland Attorney General has made noise about prosecuting the intrepid journalists who undercovered the misdeeds of ACORN employees. Perhaps he should focus instead on how ACORN was able to operate with…
The one consistent about the Bush administration is that no one who's worked there can keep their mouth shut afterwards. Nevertheless the latest blabber-puss is Matt Latimer, who obviously is trying to make a buck or two, has published a book about off-the-cuff statements by President Bush while he was his speech writer.
So what do we learn?
He's not a real conservative. But then we never thought he was. The nice thing is that we now have a resurgence of conservatism not seen since the days of Reagan.
He thinks Hillary has a fat ass, but then that opinion is shared by most the free world. Come on does anyone seriously think it's a skinny ass?
He thought that Sarah Palin was out of her league being picked for VP. Again not a isolated opinion. He thought the same of Obama, we're unfortunately finding how true that is now.
On Joe Biden: "If bull was currency, Joe Biden would be a billionaire." Who could possibly disagree with that?
"The House Dem leadership has decided that it must condemn Joe Wilson for his “you lie,” outburst, and is likely to decry his “conduct” and his “breach of decorum” as early as tomorrow, rather than censure him for “speech” and turn the standoff into a war over freedom of expression, a Dem leadership aide confirms.
“The issue at hand is one of conduct, not speech,” the aide emailed me when asked to describe internal thinking. “Congressman Wilson’s outburst during the joint session was a breach of decorum and brought discredit to the House.”
Wilson apologized to White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, but he’s ruled out an apology to the full House. The aide said failure to do that will result in action because the leadership has determined that the House is compelled to act.
“It is common for members to address such breaches themselves rather than force action by the full House,” the aide said. “Failure to respond would mean consent for tha…
