Code Pink Female Anatomy Protest in Tampa – May be inappropriate for children!

tampa

The foul weather did not keep dozens of protesters from “Code Pink” and “Occupy” from showing up in Tampa to oppose the GOP.

Dressed like parts of the female anatomy, many protesters voiced their opinion in support of on demand abortion. Some parts of the attached video may be offensive and not appropriate for children.

Obama SuperPAC Paid 169K to Promote Romney Cancer Ad Online

Monday afternoon when President Obama made a surprise visit in front of the press, he was asked about a now infamous ad from a pro-Obama SuperPAC that links Mitt Romney to the death of a woman with cancer. When asked about the ad, Obama tried to downplay the severity of the accusation by saying, “it ran once.”

“I don’t think that Governor Romney is somehow responsible for the death of the woman that was portrayed in that ad,” said Obama. “But keep in mind this is an ad that I didn’t approve, I did not produce, and as far as I can tell, has barely run. I think it ran once.”

But while President Obama said that it only ran once on television, according to a Senior Republican media strategist, the Obama SuperPAC has paid at least $169,047 to promote the Youtube video of the ad online.

“YouTube has a video analytics tool that allows you to determine the number of views per video through advertising,” the media strategist explains. “If you have the number of views that a video has obtained through advertising, the only question is how much they paid. Cellar is $0.35 per view and ceiling is around a dollar $1.00 per view. Therefore, the cost estimate we have developed per view is really very conservative because we went with $0.35 per view.”

He provides us with this chart:

 

Basically, it only ran once on television, but the outrageous ad continues to circulate online.

Solyndra Lives On–As Modern Art

Potus_solyndra

Remember Solyndra? Shortly after taking more than $500MILLION taxpayer dollars (approved by Team Obama) they filed for bankruptcy? All that taxpayer money down the drain because nobody bought the company and few showed up for the bankruptcy auction.

End of story? No. Following the auction in January remaining employees were spotted trashing crate upon crate of the glass tubes used in solar panels. Millions of dollars worth. If you didn’t hear about this watch this video. Warning: you WILL become angry at the terrible waste. Guaranteed.

As the reporter tells you, it’s not that the glass tubes have much value when compared to the money owed by the company. But to this taxpayer, it’s certainly the principle of their actions. And frustrating that the tubes were not sold or even donated for the public good.

But wait, all is not lost. Some of the tubes were salvaged. Today they have been turned in to a modern art display. It’s called SOL Grotto and uses 1,368 of the Solyndra tubes (of the estimated 24 Million) and is located at the University of California Berkeley in their Botanical Garden display.  In case you don’t want to visit here’s a short video of these tubes, paid for by you the American taxpayer.

SuperPac Anti-Romney Ad SO Bad Even MSNBC Condemns It!

This morning on The Morning Joe, even Mika Brzeznski called out the White House for lying about knowledge of the Priorities USA ad, which implies Joe Soptic’s wife’s death was due to Mitt Romney closing GST Steel.

Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s campaign manager, denied knowing anything about Mr. Soptic’s story even though she hosted a press conference call with him three months ago.

The ad has been proven to be materially false. Mitt Romney was not in charge of Bain Capital when GST Steel closed. Prior to it’s closure Mr. Soptic was offered a buyout, which he declined. His wife had health insurance for two years after it’s closure and her death was six years after the plant closed! Notice in the MSNBC segment that Mr. Soptic is wearing the same shirt in both an Obama administration ad and the Priorities USA ad. This seems to beg the question, were the ads shot on the same day?

It is illegal for a campaign to coordinate with a SuperPac on message or advertising.

It’s obvious from their demeanor that they are loath to do it, but kudos to MSNBC and the Morning Joe for doing the right thing!

US Vets Looking for Jobs? Canada Wants YOU!

canada-pipelinemap2010-600x0

Remember the stalled Keystone Pipeline? (Thank you Obama) It looks like Canada is moving ahead with plans to build a Trans-Canada oil line. But, they don’t have enough workers for such a big job. So they are partnering with US Veterans groups in an effort to find quality workers.  Yes, it’s true. Our vets are going to be able to find jobs in Canada, rather than the US. The VFW-backed VetJobs is now posting thousands of new vacancies.

CANADA WANTS U.S.VETERANS FOR PIPELINE WORK


Compliance Officer Enters Home; Wakes Owner For Lawn Violation

georgia woman

In Georgia a code compliance agent entered a woman’s home to serve a violation notice. Only thing, she was in bed sleeping. He yelled at her from her bedroom door to get up and come outside so he could serve the violation. A real invasion of privacy caught on tape.

Update:

July 8, 2012 WJBF.com “A Columbia County Code Compliance Officer won’t face charges after he allegedly entered a woman’s home without her permission.

That’s according to Captain Steve Morris. Jimmy Vowell was placed on administrative leave after Erica Masters accused Vowell of walking into her home unannounced last week to serve a violation for her grass being too long.

No word on when or if he’ll return to work.

Columbia County Administrator Scott Johnson says he has a meeting with his Division Director and the Human Resources manager Monday at 9a.m. to decide how to proceed.”

Dear Terrorists and other enemies of the USA around the world

I just wanted to drop you a line, and remind you how hard I have been working here in Washington to make things easier for you. Thanks to the recent ruling by the Court here, I’ll be ignoring our southern border – I don’t really care about that crazy woman out in Arizona. While I can’t give arms to the drug cartels anymore, I have no plans to give in to the GOP on Fast and Furious. Of course, if it becomes necessary, I have no qualms about hanging Holder out to dry.

Donkey Hotey (CC)

Also, the media is on top of demonizing the opposition. And I’ve started assembling lawyers to contest the results, if the election doesn’t go exactly my way. I’ve even got groups to silence conservatives on Twitter, and have a team dedicated to bullying webhosts into shutting down websites of my detractors.

It’s true that the FBI is keeping tabs on extremists in the military, but that simply can’t be helped. That’s just too noticeable to allow. But, there is still the lack of security on the Mexican border in your favor. And that is costing me votes – not to mention, it’s making a majority of Americans think I actually want to encourage illegal immigration. Too bad you only managed to train a Norwegian man as an operative. But, he shouldn’t have any difficulty sneaking into the US over either border. He could probably just fly in anyway. It’s not like I’m demanding efficiency or competency from the TSA.

But, one thing is, I really do need you to act soon. It can’t be too close to the elections here in November, because that might be too suspicious. And I’ll need time to muster up some sympathy, and get the message out there that we need to be a united nation against the threat. Obviously, we don’t want to let the people know that it was all constructed by me in the first place, so make sure you have control of your people. Well, that probably isn’t a problem, because you probably aren’t telling them that you’re conspiring with me in the first place!

Sincerely
Barack H. Obama

**Obviously, this is not an actual letter from our President to unnamed terrorists. Well, here’s hoping that he’s never actually written anything like this! If he had, no doubt he would say that it is protected by Executive Privilege.

Obama Has Not Been a Friend to Poor School Children

children-crossing-sign

One of the most important issues facing our country for our long term future is education. Since we are busy enslaving our children for the next century, we had better make sure they learn how to think. Currently, we have an ever increasing indoctrination system which is failing our children miserably.

If President Obama were truly concerned with the education of our youth, why did he fail to support the highly successful D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program?

In 2004 the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program came into being. It provided $7,500.00 scholarships to 3300 impoverished students in the DC area so they could attend private schools. This highly effective program increased graduation rates among its students by at least 21%. When the program came up for re-authorization in 2009, it passed the Congress but was defeated in the Senate along mostly partisan lines. The Washington Examiner said of Mr. Obama’s opposition to the program;

“Many parents of children in troubled schools have already chosen the same option that Obama chose for his own children. They’ve enrolled them in the best private schools in the country.

Not every American parent, though, has the financial resources that the President and members of Congress have. And in places like the District of Columbia, where less than half of public school students ever graduate, the need for immediate assistance and a radically new paradigm is urgent. Yet, many D.C. parents and their children have grown disillusioned by the President’s refusal to honor promises already made.

In the spring of 2009, 216 students received letters stating they had been selected to receive the opportunity scholarship. Within weeks, however, the administration rescinded those offers. Republicans tried to allow for the ongoing enrollment of new students.

Democrats, however, opposed the measure and established an effective sunset for the program once the existing awards ran out. And this despite overwhelming evidence of the scholarship’s success.”

So much for “Racing to the Top”. Obama’s strong support for the National Education Association would not allow him to support a highly successful school choice program, and instead forced the children he claims to want to help back into the hell holes of the DC school system. If it is so good, why don’t his children go there?

This is the same NEA that voted down merit pay for teachers on July 6th of 2011. What we hear from the NEA and from the Democrats in Washington is that what is needed to fix education is more money, less sugary desserts and no chocolate milk. Hogwash! Utah, one of the few states in the union with a real school choice program, has above average scores in math, science and reading, even though they spend less per student than any other state in the country, $6,612.00 in 2009. Washington DC third only to New York and New Jersey, spends $16,582.00 per student and has scores well below the national average in all categories. Money alone is not the answer. (figures from the National Center for Educational Statistics)

Who then, shall we choose to lead on educational issues in 2012? We need a person who can think outside the big national education union box when it comes to teaching our children. We need someone who knows the value of education, and who knows that the best opportunities come when control is local and incentive is provided to educators. Our next President must understand how absolutely VITAL it is for our future as a country, that our children learn to read, write, understand mathematics and science!

For the long term, for the future of our country, and for the future of our children, we need a leader who knows what it takes to provide a world class education for our youth, to once again bring our nation to the forefront of science, technology and the arts, and to once again have the best educated high school and college graduates in the world!

WTF – High Speed Rail to Nowhere

Construction nears completion on Phase I of the Dulles rail project

Winning The Future, anyone remember that one? That was President Obama’s scheme to rebuild the American economy on among other things, high speed rail.

In his 2011 State of the Union address he said, “This is our generation’s Sputnik moment. … The third step in winning the future is rebuilding America. To attract new businesses to our shores, we need the fastest, most reliable ways to move people, goods, and information — from high-speed rail to high-speed Internet.”

President Obama assured us that we would connect 80 percent of Americans to high-speed rail within 25 years.

Governors like Rick Scott of Florida and Scott Walker of Wisconsin saw this for the boondoggle it was and refused the government money for high speed rail.

California, however, never a state to pass up an opportunity to waste taxpayer dollars, signed on to the project right away, receiving 3.5 billion dollars from the federal government, and borrowing another 10 billion dollars in a bond issue. The money is to build a high speed rail line from Los Angeles to San Francisco. The estimated cost for the project is 68 billion dollars. Since Congress cut off 2012 funds for such projects, California is the only U.S. state working to lay tracks for 220 mph trains. The project remains about $54 billion short of what is required for completion

Public support among Californians is waning, however. A recent USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll found that 59 percent would now oppose the rail project given another chance to vote even though it was previously approved by a 53% majority.

Even with a budget deficit of 15.7 billion dollars, Governor Jerry Brown seems undeterred. He has allocated some of the 9.95 billion dollars in bond issues for the rail project in fiscal year 2012, while he asks voters to increase sales and income taxes and cut the school year by three weeks.

Contempt Charges To Be Brought Against Holder

Attorney General Eric Holder

Katie Pavlich, News Editor for Townhall, released today that contempt charges will be brought against Eric Holder on June 20th.  Pavlich has been covering the Fast and Furious scandal and has written a book about this egregious episode in government ineptitude.

Fast and Furious was a botched “gunwalking” operation headed by the ATF that allowed thousands of guns to cross into Mexico in the hopes of capturing key drug cartel kingpins in the ongoing narcotics war.  It is a conflict that has already claimed over 30,000 lives since it began in 2006.  What makes Fast and Furious horrific is the fact that the guns used in the operation were responsible for the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.   Holder was given the option to have a contempt charge tossed if he complied with the October 2011 Congressional Subpoena.  He did not.  Here is Chairman Darrell Issa’s statement compliments of Katie Pavlich and Townhall.com:

 

For over a year and a half, the House Oversight Committee, with Senator Chuck Grassley, has conducted a joint investigation of reckless conduct in Operation Fast and Furious. With the support of House leadership, the Republican Conference, and even some Democratic Members who have expressed concern to the White House over the Justice Department’s failure to cooperate, this investigation has yielded significant results. The Attorney General has acknowledged that the operation was fundamentally flawed and he has committed to take steps to ensure that it does not occur again. Evidence found in applications for wiretaps shows that although senior officials were given information about reckless tactics, they still signed affirmations that they had reviewed the investigation and determined that electronic surveillance of phones was necessary.

Despite what the investigation has uncovered through whistleblowers and documents the Justice Department had tried to hide, the Committee’s work is not yet complete.  Attorney General Holder has failed to meet his legal obligations pursuant to the October 12 subpoena.  House leaders reiterated this failure in a May 18, 2012, letter. Specifically, the Justice Department has refused to turn over critical documents on the grounds that they show internal Department deliberations and were created after February 4, 2011 – the date Justice issued a false denial to Congress.  Contempt will focus on the failure to provide these post February 4th documents.

The Obama Administration has not asserted Executive Privilege or any other valid privilege over these materials and it is unacceptable that the Department of Justice refuses to produce them.  These documents pertain to Operation Fast and Furious, the claims of whistleblowers, and why it took the Department nearly a year to retract false denials of reckless tactics.  The Justice Department’s actions have obstructed the investigation. Congress has an obligation to investigate unanswered questions about attempts to smear whistleblowers, failures by Justice Department officials to be truthful and candid with the congressional investigation, and the reasons for the significant delay in acknowledging reckless conduct in Operation Fast and Furious.

While the Justice Department can still stop the process of contempt, this will only occur through the delivery of the post February 4, 2011, documents related to Operation Fast and Furious and whistleblower accusations subpoenaed by the Committee.  If the Attorney General decides to produce these subpoenaed documents, I am confident we can reach agreement on other materials and render the process of contempt unnecessary.”

 

 

Barack Obama’s Flawless Budget Victory

obama-president3

AP (Amateur Press) — Barack Obama achieved a historic victory over the Senate today with a 99-0 drubbing of the extremist Republicans and Democrats who opposed his budget plan. Every single Senator voted against the budget plan, and were proved not up to the bold challenge the president had put before them.

The vote proves once again that Obama is simply too progressive for the U.S Congress, which the president said is still mired in reactionary thinking about budgets and numbers.

“While I have reached out in a spirit of bi-partisan compromise to the Congress by moderating the magnificence of my budget plan,” the president chided the legislature, “it still turned out to be too progressive. If others only shared my vision of a nation with at least a hundred trillion dollars in debt, spent on noble causes of my choosing, we could move past being a backwards country.”

The president continued to take the Congress to task for its limited vision and preoccupation with spending and debt.

“The Greeks get it. The Portuguese get it. The Spanish get it. Why can’t our own Congress, touted as the most enlightened in the world, get it?” Mr. Obama said with self-righteous indignation. “What we have in this body are a bunch of radical extremists who want to keep America mired in the eighteenth century. It is time we grow up as a country, become more like Europe, and progress into the twentieth century.”

Of course, the president was referring also to the House of Representatives, whom he defeated in a budget battle in March 414-0.

“Ultimately, what I would like to see is a more compassionate country that actually fulfills the American Dream,” Obama said wistfully, transcending the mundane surroundings of the Rose Garden, “one where everyone has his wants and needs paid for by everybody else. Only when everyone sees the economic justice of such a world, will there be a people progressive enough to live it.”

When asked for comment, DNC Chairwoman Debbie-Wasserman Schultz provided some context.

“Barack Obama is a great man of history who is simply too far ahead of his time,” she said angrily. “There is simply no way a Congress could defeat the splendor of such a man, without defeating itself.  The budget not being put into law might even be a good thing, since it is a vindication of the president’s transcendence over the extremists in the House and Senate, and even above the country itself. In that way, the budget not being passed into law is in itself a victory.”

The president’s own words at the press conference support Ms. Wasserman-Schultz’ sentiment.

“Voting for this bill would have been the wrong thing to do at this time,” the president said with a sigh. “Unfortunately, the American people just aren’t ready.”

The Question of Obama’s Eligibility to Serve as President Picks Up Steam

The question of the eligibility of Barack Obama to appear on the 2012 Presidential ballot has picked up steam as lawsuits have been filed in Federal and State District Courts to force the Democrat National Committee, its Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid to show positive proof that Obama meets the parameters laid out by the Constitution of the United States of America to hold said office. These events have somehow escaped the eagle eyes of the main stream media, but have been widely reported throughout the internet news media.

The Liberty Legal Foundation/Dummett lawsuits center around the citizenship of Obama’s father and the “natural born citizen” statute found in Article II Section 1 Paragraph 5 of the United States Constitution. Unlike similar lawsuits that have failed in the past, Mr. Dummett has been granted standing by the Ninth Circuit Court due to his candidacy for the office of President of the United States of America. Mr. Dummett is also suing the Democrat National Committee and its representatives rather than suing government entities as has been done in the past.

In hearings before the Ninth Circuit Court in San Francisco, the justices determined Mr. Dummett could be harmed by a candidate not constitutionally eligible to run for the office of President. The court allowed Liberty Legal and Mr. Dummett to proceed with their suits, declaring Mr. Dummett has standing as a legally registered candidate for the office.

One report on this issue comes from the site Maggie’s Notebook on December 30, 2011,  which lists excerpts of the actual filing by Liberty Legal Foundation’s Van Irions as well as copies of the forms submitted by the DNC in 2008. The wording of the 2008 forms has been brought into question as two copies differ in the wording of the certification of candidate Obama. The lawsuit filed by Liberty Legal seeks to enjoin the DNC and any Democrat official from certifying Obama as an eligible candidate without first proving he is indeed eligible according to the provisions laid out in the Constitution.

Lawsuits have been filed by Mr. Dummett and Liberty Legal Foundation in The United States District Court for the District of Arizona , and in the Chancery Court for the State of Tennessee . Copies of the suits can be seen at the links listed above.

In a related story, New York voter Robert Laity on December 2, 2011 filed a “Challenge Petition” with the New York State Board of Elections, alleging that Obama’s 2008 election resulted from fraud and that he is not eligible to appear on the ballot in 2012. According to the Post & Email article Laity has also been in contact with New York governor Andrew Cuomo and his state senator, Mark Grisanti, on this matter. The Post & Email blog site conducted an interview with Mr. Laity that can be found at this link, along with correspondence Mr. Laity has exchanged with Governor Cuomo’s office.

In Georgia, Carl Swensson and Kevin Richard Powell have filed a separate lawsuit, also contending Barack Obama does not meet the “natural born citizen” requirement of the Constitution and asking that Obama’s name not be allowed to appear on the ballot of the State of Georgia. The suit also asks that they be considered separately from several others who have filed similar lawsuits in Georgia. Liberty Legal Foundation is also involved in the Georgia suit, which is scheduled to be heard on January 26, 2012 at 9:00 a.m.

A related story at the Politics Today website details Obama’s Occidental College transcripts, including Obama’s Fullbright Scholarship, requiring a student to certify that he/she is a foreign student. The story at Politics Today also documents Obama’s passport and travel history. They also reported that the Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments on a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey concerning Obama’s eligibility to serve as President. This is one of many lawsuits over Obama’s eligibility, including those brought by Liberty Legal Foundation and Dummett.

Efforts to contact the DNC, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schutlz, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and Sen. Harry Reid were met with an array of “go away and don’t bother us” tactics. The DNC representative knew nothing about this matter, and when asked to be put through to someone who does know, the CDN reporter was put on hold and then heard a dial tone. The staff at the offices of the members of Congress said that not only did they not know about this matter, they did not talk about any issue not directly related to constituent needs.
