Would These Be Part Of The 1%ers* That The "Occupiers" Are All Upset About?

Pelosi's $10,000-A-Night Vacation
 
President Barack Obama** The Chief Idiot of the United States is not the only VIP to be spending his holidays in exclusive islands in Hawaii. 
While the president and his family are on a 17-day holiday vacation in beach front homes in Kailua, Oahu, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is spending her Christmas at the exotic Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu in Kona, reports the Hawaii Reporter. 
The California Democrat's suite, which she has rented for the past two Christmases, room goes for a whopping $10,000 a night. Pelosi has been escorted by local police during her two visits, at a cost of $34,000 to local taxpayers, the Reporter says. 
Obama’s trip to the island of Oahu is much higher. Last week, the Reporter added up the total cost of his vacation to be more than $4 million.
I guess we could put things into perspective, though -- $4 million, next to our national debt that the Chief Idiot of the United States has run up, is like pissin' in the ocean.
* The only "1%ers" I've ever known, belonged to biker gangs.
** There... I fixed it for 'em.

Funny... Obama Doesn’t Look Jewish.

The Jews, the Communists, and the Democratic Party

Dec 24th, 2011 By Jennie Jones

A little background on Jennie Jones and PolitiChicks.TV from Tom Lehner: 

“The View is a daily talk show on ABC since 1997 hosted by semi-intellectual liberals, such as Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sheri Shepherd, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck (leans right).

"They have the intellectual capacity of a 5th grader, but that does not keep them from picking a daily topic where they torture us by pushing their radical left wing ideology on us. ...

"After 14 years of Conservative Bashing and Liberal ranting on ABC’s the View we finally have a counterpart and our own show. ... PolitiChicks.tv

That said, here’s the column from Jennie Jones:
I grew up in the forties and fifties. My father’s family, like many other Polish Jewish families in Canada, were avowed Communists. They were dedicated to workers’ rights and marched in the streets. They even managed to get one of their own, J P Salsberg, elected to the Ontario legislature representing the Communist Party, then called the Labour-Progressive Party.
I was old enough to remember the heated debates on the trial and execution of the Rosenbergs, the Doctor’s Plot as alleged by Stalin, and the McCarthy hearings. I even watched the hearings on that newfangled device called television. I read the Bintel Brief and The Rise of David Levinsky by the editor of the Forward, Abraham Cahan. I was an avid reader of IB Singer, Bernard Malamud, Phillip Roth (I married a Communist), Irving Howe, Chaim Grade, Sholem Asch, I.J. Singer, and many others. I went beyond the tribe and read Theodore Dreiser, John dos Passos, Upton Sinclair, and John Steinbeck. That was my generation. My Zionist readings had not yet begun.
Massive Jewish emigration from Russia to the U.S. was caused by a wave of anti-Jewish pogroms sponsored by the tsarist government after the assassination of Alexander II in 1881. Russia  wanted to suppress those advocating reform. The minister of the Interior gave a speech in 1903 in which he said:
In Western Russia, some 90 per cent of the revolutionaries are Jews, and in Russia generally -- some 40 per cent. I shall not conceal from you that the revolutionary movement in Russia worries us but you should know that if you do not deter your youth from the revolutionary movement, we shall make your position untenable to such an extent that you will have to leave Russia, to the very last man!
And so they did. 
Wikipedia summarizes:
By 1924, two million Jews had arrived from Eastern Europe. Growing anti-immigration feelings in the United States at this time, resulted in the National Origins Quota of 1924 which severely restricted immigration from many regions including Eastern Europe. The Jewish community took the lead in opposing immigration restrictions, which remained in effect until 1965.
Thereafter, Jews came to Canada as their second choice. These included my father’s family, which were Communists, and my mother’s family, which were Zionists. 
In the thirties, America was plagued by the Great Depression. I was proud of my father’s family because they fought for workers’ rights and a better world.  Franklin Delano Roosevelt, on the promise of a New Deal, was elected president in 1932, an office he held until his death in 1945. The Jews, Communist or otherwise, worshiped Roosevelt. That worship was little diminished by Roosevelt’s failure to bomb the extermination camps or to allow Jews, even those fleeing the Holocaust, to enter the U.S. He would not allow the Jews on the St. Louis to disembark, leaving them to their fate, which was a return to Europe and death. It was of no concern to U.S. Jews that the New Deal was unconstitutional or ultimately was proven to have extended the Depression. And it was of no concern to the Jewish leadership that Jews were dying by the millions in the Holocaust. 
The Jews remained loyal to the Democratic Party throughout. They also remained loyal to liberalism and secularism. Communism was embraced because it offered an antidote to discrimination and persecution as it existed in Russia and in America in the first half of the 20th century; you know, “Workers of the World, Unite!” Even though Communism proved to be a false God, duly noted by Kunstler’s The God That Failed, the Jews continued their quest for equality and civil rights. They believe as a result in the separation of church and state and the responsibility of the state to provide for those in need.  
“It was of no concern to U.S. Jews that the New Deal was unconstitutional or ultimately was proven to have extended the Depression.”

May Roosevelt, Lyndon Baines Johnson and Obama rot in hell.

Spielberg, Clooney, Hanks Give Maximum Contributions To Obama's Reelection Bid.


Okay... do I really think that if I boycott ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that these three flakes do, that it's going send them into bankruptcy? Not even hardly (try sticking your thumb in a 55 gallon of diesel fuel, pull it out and then see what kind of difference you made.) But, it makes ME feel better!




While this may come as no surprise, dyed in the wool Hollywood liberals are throwing their financial backing behind President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign en-force. Among the names are Steven SpielbergGeorge Clooney and Tom Hanks. 
According to data gathered on OpenSecrets.org, Clooney made a $2,500 contribution for the primary and another $2,500 donation for the presidential race while infamous filmmaker Spielberg gave $30,800 to the DNC on Apr. 26; $8,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on July 31; and two $2,500 donations to Barack Obama on Apr. 26. 
While many of these Hollywood celebrities are indeed the “usual suspects” among Obama supporters, one Tinseltown campaign contribution Obama probably won’t receive this time around is from actor Matt Damon, who The Blaze reported as saying: 
“I’ve talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level. One of them said to me, ‘Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician’…You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better.”

Guess I'll be watching more Matt Damon stuff. That'll show 'em!

Obama Sucks... And A Quote From 1944.

I just got this in my e-mail from JonBerg: 





Thanks, JB, because it brings up a question I’ve always had about Socialism/Communism/Marxism. Let me rephrase that -- a question I’ve always had about PEOPLE who would adhere to the concept of Socialism/Communism/Marxism.

I can sorta understand the concept of Communism. It’s great for the guys at the top of the food chain (a minority of people.) It works on the principle of forced labor of the guys at the bottom (the majority of people) to feed the guys at the top. There is no middle class. Well, there’s no middle class unless you count the goons that are kept around to police the majority of people (referred to as “Snuffies” from here on) in line. The Snuffies are pretty much slave labor and they’re given just enough to subsist on so that they can keep the goons and the top tier well fed, clothed and entertained. Snuffies (because there’s so many of them) are expendable and they can be exterminated at any time, for any reason... and they are. Snuffies don’t adhere to Communism because they want to. Snuffies just don’t have any choice in the matter because they’re outgunned -- literally.

Marxism is a form of Communism except it starts off with “Marx.”

Socialism is a watered down version of Communism/Marxism. Nearly all the Snuffies work for the government and sit around all day stapling their fingers together. There are a few Snuffies who actually generate revenue. However, most of the revenue they generate is given back to the government so that the government Snuffies can buy more staples. Snuffies do adhere to Socialism ‘cause it’s easy and free. But, the other Snuffies (those who are generating the revenue that’s feeding the government Snuffies) look up one day and say, “Piss on it!” When “Piss on it!” starts taking hold -- and it always does -- it’s like a snake eating its tail.

So, I think I’ve answered my own question as to why people adhere to the concept of Socialism/Communism/Marxism.

The Snuffies of the world are either outgunned or, as Thomas states above, stupid as hell -- or both.

Obama And Holder Should Put The Race Card Back In The Deck.

This is from a LENGTHY column written by David (note that’s David, NOT Rush) Limbaugh. There’s probably a lot of places where I should have used the “...” to indicate missing copy. I did where I thought it necessary -- sometimes I didn’t. If you want the whole thing in its entirety, you can read it here. 
President Obama led us to believe that he would be a post-racial president who would bring the races together, but it’s gotten to where you can’t criticize this most leftist administration in American history without someone accusing you of racism.
The most recent example involves criticism of Attorney General Eric Holder over Fast and Furious ... . Throughout, despite having received detailed memos from DOJ officials about it, Holder has denied he was aware of it. 
The scandal and Holder’s stonewalling have led to some 60 congressmen demanding his resignation, and 75 cosponsoring a House resolution calling for a “no-confidence” vote on his performance as attorney general. 
Holder has defiantly denied culpability, and President Obama the Chief Idiot of the United States,* without betraying the slightest concern, has proclaimed his complete confidence in Holder. In a New York Times** interview, Holder suggested race was partially driving a “more extreme segment” against him and Obama. 
Holder said, “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him, both due to the nature of our relationship, and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.” When pressed for some proof to support Holder’s allegation, the Justice Department did not respond. Nor has the White House distanced itself from Holder’s comments. 
Nor was this the first time Holder had invoked the issue of race. During a speech commemorating Black History Month shortly after he became attorney general, Holder said the American people are “essentially a nation of cowards when it comes to racial matters.” 
This seemed to many a curious way to celebrate the election of an African-American president, not to mention reflecting Holder’s sizable preoccupation with race and his apparent perception of societal problems through a racial lens. It could also help to explain his Justice Department’s indefensible dismissal of an already won voter intimidation case against New Black Panther Party members using the specious excuse that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute. 
None of this comes as any surprise, however, because President Obama had telegraphed his race-oriented mindset in his book, in his church association and in his projecting statement that small-town people “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them.” He has worn race on his sleeve numerous times as president. 
When a white police officer in Cambridge, Mass., arrested Harvard professor Henry Gates, an African-American, Obama, without having heard both sides of the case, publicly injected himself into the local matter and gratuitously smeared the entire police department as having “acted stupidly.” In addition, Obama told guests at a private dinner at the White House that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency, especially among tea party members. 
Not only has Obama made these viscerally charged racial statements, he has also consciously appealed to minority groups with specific reference to their race. In a Democratic National Committee video in April 2010, he urged “young people, African-Americans, Latinos and women ... to stand together once again.” Shortly before the November 2010 congressional elections, he told an audience that Republicans “are counting on black folks staying home.” Separately, he appealed to Latino voters not to stay home at election time but to “punish our enemies” and not go along with the Republicans’ “cynical attempt to discourage Latinos from voting.” 
Conservative opposition to Obama isn’t about race, and I’m confident this administration is well aware of that but is using the race card anyway, out of political desperation, to the destruction of the nation, and to racial relations. It’s disgraceful and unconscionable.
“It’s disgraceful and unconscionable.” -- Isn’t this what EVERYTHING about the present Mafiaized administration has been about all along? 

I’m sorry Mafia. I shouldn’t have compared the Mafia to the present “administration.” Even the Mafia has a code of honor and ethics.

* There, I fixed it for him.

Who You Gonna Believe... Me Or Your Lying Eyes?


Unemployment rate actually 11.04 percent. 
According to former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich, employment needs to grow by at least 90,000 a month just to keep up with the growth of the population. But, since the fall of 2008, the civilian labor force has actually shrunk from 154.7 million to 153.8 million, a contraction of about 900,000.
It’s not that fertility suddenly dropped or there was a massive plague. It should have grown by 3.24 million since then, but it didn’t. Which means working age adults are simply not being counted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS.
They are fudging the numbers.

Adding the 900,000 contraction to the expected growth, the total civilian labor force should be 4.14 million larger than is being counted, at about 157.94 million by now. And the unemployed should be about that much more larger, since if they could be counted as working, BLS would most certainly be counting them.
All of which puts the happy talk of the Administration into perspective. When the jobs numbers were released, Barack Obama lauded the result, saying, “We need to keep that growth going.”
What growth? Propaganda is not going to get those 28 million people into honest, paying jobs. It’s not going to help folks who are on the edge of foreclosure keep their homes. It’s not going to help new college graduates from getting started off in the workforce on the right foot.
The economy needs to be expanding in order to create jobs just at the natural rate of population growth. We’re nowhere near there right now, and we need to be.
All of which makes Obama’s job-killing policies all the more inexplicable, whether the regulatory burdens that will be imposed the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) carbon endangerment finding or through Obamacare, or his insistence on raising taxes on job creators. He constantly slings mud in a class warfare gambit that is suited for perhaps the campaign trail, but is hardly the leadership the nation needs right now and won’t create jobs.
In short, it must become competitive to do business here in America again. And that will probably not happen so long as Obama is in office. It is clear the nation needs new leadership ... .

When You Wish Upon A Star...



Kim Jong Chilled.
Damn! I hope this doesn't ruin the Hawaiian extravaganza that OUR "Dear Leader" has planned.
ByJIM TREACHER  
Christmas came a little early this year! You won't have Lil' Kim to kick around anymore. Associated Press:
"Even as the world changed around him, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il remained firmly in control, ruling absolutely at home and keeping the rest of the world on edge through a nuclear weapons program... His death after 17 years as leader was announced Monday by state television two days after he died. North Korea’s news agency reported that he had died at 8:30 a.m. Saturday after having a heart attack on a train, adding that he had been treated for cardiac and cerebrovascular diseases for a long time. He was 69. He is widely expected to be succeeded by his third son in a nation that celebrates the ruling family with an intense cult of personality. On Monday, the North Korean news agency dubbed the younger Kim a 'great successor' as the country rallied around him as the next leader."
Well, what are they gonna say? The North Korean press is almost as corrupt and brainwashed as ours. 
We know what you're thinkin': Is that three Axis of Evillers down, or only two? You've got to ask yourself one question: Do you feel lucky, Mahmoud?
I REALLY like the way Treacher says, "The North Korean press is ALMOST as corrupt and brainwashed as ours."

Howsomever, Treacher counts three Axis of Evillers; when you count our "Dear Leader," that makes FOUR in my books.

Merry Christmas China, Iran and Russia!

With All My Love -- Obama.


The Iranians have an American drone they say they shot down. 

If it was shot down, how come the hell it’s not spread all over the desert? How did it just MAGICALLY land in the desert in one piece and how was it that we just “lost control of it?” 

With early knowledge that the aircraft had likely remained intact, the senior U.S. official also told Fox News that President Obama was presented with three separate options for retrieving or destroying the drone. The president ultimately decided not to proceed with any of the plans because it could have been seen as an act of war, the official told Fox News.
One official told Fox News on Thursday that the incident is a huge loss and makes the top-secret helicopter tail lost during the Usama bin Laden raid in Pakistan “look like a pittance.” The official said there are real fears the Iranians will share this technology with the Russians and the Chinese, in addition to using it themselves. 
“... there are real fears the Iranians will share this technology with the Russians and the Chinese ...” Riiiight. The Iranians GET their technology FROM the Russians and Chinese! 

Then, Obimbo opts out of EVERYTHING because he’s afraid that the strike would be seen as an “act of war?” 

Yeah, well, I think Obimbo “gave” the drone to them -- that way he could act like he has this great love for his country but the whole time he’s openly and actually undermining it. 

My guess would be that they jammed its radio controls and stole it in THEIR OWN ACT OF WAR.

What’s your guess?

Fort Hood Massacre Was ‘Workplace Violence.’

Just about the time when I think I’ve heard it all from the Chief Idiot of the United States... 

Anything that I could possibly add would be anticlimactic. 
The Fort Hood massacre that took place on November 5, 2009 at Fort Hood, the most populous U.S. military installation in the world, located just outside Killeen, Texas, was the worst shooting ever to take place on an American military base. In the course of the shooting, Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army Major serving as a psychiatrist and a Muslim, killed 13 people, one of whom was pregnant, and wounded 29 others. 
Hasan is an American-born Muslim most likely radicalized by other American-born Muslims. Internal Army reports indicate officers within the Army had discussed what they characterized as Hasan’s tendencies toward radical Islam since 2005. Additionally, investigations before and after the shooting discovered e-mail communications between Hasan and Yemen-based cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who quickly declared Hasan a hero, as “fighting against the U.S. army is an Islamic duty.” 
According to U.S. government officials Anwar al-Awlaki was a senior talent recruiter and motivator who was involved with planning operations for the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda. Al-Awlaki was considered to be such a threat that the U.S. deployed unmanned aircraft in Yemen to search for and kill him. He was finally killed in a drone attack in Yemen on September 30, 2011. 
Now we learn that the Defense Department has reclassified the Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence.” We know that Maj. Hassan​ shouted “Allahu Akbar” (Arabic for “God is Great”) after firing a total of 214 rounds at his fellow soldiers. When the shooting ended, he was still carrying 177 rounds of ammunition in his pockets, contained in both 20- and 30-round magazines. 
The act was premeditated. A senior law enforcement official said that a review of Hasan’s computer and his multiple e-mail accounts revealed that he visited websites espousing radical Islamist ideas.

Obama Plays Pipeline Politics.


Kills 20,000 High Paying Jobs. 
From Life and Liberty PAC  
Afraid of angering environmentalists during a hotly debated election cycle, the Obama Administration has stalled a decision on construction of the Keystone Oil XL Pipeline -- and in the process killed the creation of over 20,000 high paying U.S. jobs. 
The Keystone XL Oil Pipeline is designed to increase the supply and availability of Canadian oil in America. Construction of the expanded pipeline alone will create an estimated 20,000 high paying jobs desperately needed in this economic crisis. The project also reduces our reliance on foreign oil supplied by terror states.
Just by virtue of having grown up and having worked in the oil patch, I think Rep. Fred Upton (R) from Michigan has a FAR CLOSER estimate of the jobs created and the barrels of oil we’re losing EVERYDAY. Upton, who is chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, says that the pipeline project could create 100,000 jobs. Upton also said, “Why is it that we’re not working with Canada, which will be producing more than 3 or 4 million barrels a day from oil sand ... ?”

But under pressure from leftwing constituency and radical environmental groups, Obama reversed his own Administration’s approval of the project, and has stalled it until after the 2012 general election. 
Claiming more research needs to be done to identify environmental impact, the Obama State Department has been interposed to delay the decision until 2013. 
The timing of the planned decision is of course the worst possible example of an Administration that cares more for the vainglory of re-election than for the needs of the American citizens it purports to represent.
By delaying the decision, Obama is attempting to escape a potential no win political situation. If the Administration approves the pipeline, they will lose the support of their extremist Left environmental base. If the Administration denies the project, they run the risk of alienating workers and middle class voters who care less about ideology and more about the current state of joblessness in America. 
So, the Obama Administration has chosen to posture as unable to do anything until after the election, when it will no longer matter who they offend.
Canada is losing money everyday that the pipline isn’t built. AND, it’s gonna get built... right to CANADA’S western coast and then go straight to CHINA!

Thanks a lot -- AGAIN -- Chief Idiot of the United States of Amerika!

For All You Gutless Wonder "Occupiers" Out There...

...why don't you go "occupy" this for awhile?!

The main reason is because you don't have the cojones!

The main, MAIN reason is because you'd get your whiny little asses kicked... NOT pepper sprayed!


The Idiot in Chief could take a lesson from the sign, too. How about doing some work for a change? As New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie rhetorically asked, "What the hell are we paying you for?"


I say, "Too much for too long for too little!"


Oh yeah... I forgot to add, Idiot in Chief, "You LAZY sonofabitch!"

The Idiot Just Makes It So Easy!

Happy Birthday, United States Marine Corps!

I have only one birthday and that’s the Marine Corps Birthday. The Marine Corps was born on 10 November 1775 and, fittingly enough, born in a bar -- Tunn Tavern, to be exact.

My birth began when my feet hit the deck on those yellow footprints at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, California in December of 1965. No one but a Marine could, or would, understand what those yellow footprints mean. I was born in Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, Platoon 3042 and I earned the title of a United States Marine.
I’ve lived my life as a Marine and when I die, I’ll be a dead Marine -- hopefully, guarding the Streets of Heaven.

Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!” Thank you, Mrs. Roosevelt!


Happy Birthday to my Brother Marines and to the United States Marine Corps!

Ooh-Rah!

Semper Fi!

Word To Remember Election Day, Nov. 2012.

Ineptocracy (in-ept-o-cra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Obama Announces Support For 'Occupy Wall Street.'

A few months ago, a friend of mine (another one of the '53%ers' mentioned below) and I were talking about what was, and had been, happening. Our contention was that we would see another civil war sometime in our lifetime. There is no common ground anymore. Little did we know that what we were talking about a few short weeks ago would evolve, in such a short time, to what we're seeing today.

From Patriots PAC 
Barack Obama and chief White House ideologues like David Plouffe have hit the airwaves to announce their open, enthusiastic support of the blatantly Socialist "Occupy" movement making a mess in cities across the nation. 
 Over the last two years, we have suffered a President who calls the hardworking American public protesting as the Tea Party and as patriot groups everything from racist to violent to angry mobs. Yet when faced with an actual angry, violent, unruly mob -- he's OK with it, full of praise and compliments, as long as they are dedicated Socialists working to destroy capitalism.
That should worry all of us in the hated '53%' -- the middle class suckers who are paying the taxes that support all these confused kids, lefty parasites and SEIU deadbeats clamoring for even more of a free ride than they already have. ... The Democrat National Party has raised $70 million just this quarter to ensure Obama and his Marxist minions take a second term, and are able to redistribute, I mean 'spread around' everything that is left of YOUR money in 2012 -- after they 'shut down capitalism'!
Occupy is not going away. Frances Fox Piven was caught on video posted at The Gateway Pundit in an weird, nocturnal chanting session with Marxist acolytes of Occupy in McPherson Square last week, exhorting them to revolution, yelling they must 'stop trying to save the middle class' -- explaining it is all about over-throwing the middle class and achieving totalitarian revolution.
Piven called on the clueless, smiling college kids chanting back at her to 'help the jobless and the poor' to rise up in a violent show of solidarity and force, in calls dripping with Marxist language of class struggle that made her and her late husband Richard Cloward 60s icons of the revolutionary set. 
She spoke just as she had written earlier this year in The Nation, "So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs? … The out-of-work have to stop blaming themselves for their hard times and turn their anger on the bosses, the bureaucrats or the politicians who are in fact responsible." 
Viola! The Occupy Movement is born and nurtured by Marxists, and Obama is determined to make the Republicans own its 'populist' outrage!
Meanwhile, the campaign Money Race is on. Make no mistake; this election will be one of the ugliest and most expensive in history -- no holds barred. The Obama Socialists are going for broke, literally. Barack Obama has George Soros and a band of billionaire and millionaire militant Marxists who will pour whatever funding they think it will take to 'transform' our Constitution-loving, free market America into their Marxist 'workers' paradise' of coercion, conformity, and constraint.

Mathematically, '53%ers' ought to be the majority. But, it appears there's a WHOLE LOT MORE of the loonies out there than there are of the '53%ers.' Besides, I don't know even know how the '53%' figure was arrived at. If we're the 53%, how did the Idiot in Chief come to occupy the White (Semi-White) House? So, in reality, I think this fuzzy mathematics can be thrown out the window.

And, yeah, the protesters want Obimbo to be re-elected! He and his 'administration' -- AKA George Soros and the Merry Band of Billionaire and Millionaire Militant Marxists -- are out there announcing their open, enthusiastic support of the blatantly Socialist 'Occupy' movement.
 

The protesters are too stupid to see that the bailed out banks, unions, and Obimbo's green energy friends (the ones that created, and still ARE) creating his election slush fund, are the very factions they're protesting against! It’s amazing that Obimbo is still their Messiah, even though they've had three years of 'results' to look at. Given the obvious mentality of the protesters, I guess it's not too hard to see why, though.

That civil war may be coming sooner than we expected. Let me rephrase that -- the civil war is happening.

Want to know what's even more disheartening? The GOP establishment is giving us Obama-lite.

Michelle Obama’s Warning to Gun Owners

If you don't read anything but this, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox summed it up with, "Nearly three years into President Obama’s first term in office, Michelle Obama finally said something with which I can agree."
At a recent fundraiser for her husband’s re-election campaign, first lady Michelle Obama told her audience:
“We stand at a fundamental crossroads for our country. You’re here because you know that in just 13 months, we’re going to make a choice that will impact our lives for decades to come … let’s not forget what it meant when my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices … let’s not forget the impact that their decisions will have on our lives for decades to come.”
This week, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox wrote an excellent op-ed for the Daily Caller on the first lady’s chilling comments and what they could potentially mean for the future.  To read the piece, please click here. 
Again, if you read nothing else, these few paragraphs from the article bear repeating.

"When Americans flock to the polls in 13 months, we will not simply decide which direction our country should take over the next four years. Rather, we will decide whether or not our fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms will survive over the next several decades.

Currently, the Second Amendment clings to a 5-4 pro-freedom majority on the Supreme Court. Just one vote is all that stands between the America our Founding Fathers established and a radically different America that Barack Obama and his supporters envision.

If these four justices had just one more vote on their side, their opinion -- that the Second Amendment should not exist in today’s modern society -- would be the law of the land today. And assuredly, the anti-gun activist wing of the court knows how close they are to gaining the upper hand. As Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg told aHarvard Club audience in 2009, she looks forward to the day when a 'future, wiser court' overturns 5-4 decisions like Heller.

If President Obama gets the opportunity to tilt the balance of the Supreme Court in his favor, we’re unlikely to see another pro-gun victory at the Court in our lifetime. Even worse, the 5-4 majorities in Heller and McDonald will be in serious jeopardy of being reversed, effectively eliminating the Second Amendment."

That said, I'm a NRA member -- have been and will continue to be. I was going to write about all the reasons WHY I am. I ran across an article that defines the reasons WHY. There's no reason to re-invent the wheel. This is from
gunsamerica.com.

Maybe I’m an extremist, but I feel that if it was not for the NRA, America would be in the same boat that England and Canada are in today, with almost no citizens possessing defensive guns at all. You may argue that America is different. This isn’t possible here, that the 2nd Amendment protects our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. You might argue that England and Canada don’t have a Bill of Rights and that is why they lost their guns. Right? 
I wholeheartedly disagree. 
If I am ever asked to speak at the NRA Annual Conference, ... I will not talk about reaching out to youth to go shooting. I won’t talk about using a woodchuck cartridge to hunt deer. And I certainly won’t talk about any politician who is a friend to gun rights. I will talk about apathy and ignorance, and how bombarded we are with misinformation and attacks on our 2nd Amendment freedom. The Right to Keep and Bear Arms may indeed be written into the Bill of Rights, but the anti-gunners have wrangled every detail of the law and of our lives to steal that freedom away, and without the NRA they would long ago have been successful, just like they were in England, Canada, most of Europe, Australia, and most other “western” countries of the world. 
The NRA is our steady and strong voice, and our iron fist. There are throngs of idiots out there who didn’t pay attention in history class and who feel it is their moral duty to ban personal firearm ownership. It has always been the NRA who fights them. They don’t win them all, but they always fight, and they aren’t fighting for some perverse political power trip like your friendly neighborhood senator. They fight for freedom, and for the future of freedom in this great nation we live in. 
I ask you to make sure that your membership is up to date if you are a lapser like I used to be, or if you have not been a member, to join the NRA today. And, respectfully and peaceable-like of course, get in your friend’s faces and get them to do the same!
In one of my earlier posts, I said something to the effect that the Second Amendment isn't just about squirrel or deer hunting -- it's about PROTECTION from the BAD GUYS!
I stood corrected when FORGER left me a comment, "I hate to disagree w/ a Jarhead, but the 2nd is not about just protection from 'Bad Guys'... It PRIMARILY covers 
protection from the 'Bad Guys' that make up our government."

Yep, my bad, FORGER. I forgot to add that most important part.

We haven't even touched on the arch enemy of gun owners, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the UN’s 'Small Arms Treaty.' She and the UN could, effectively, wipe out our Second Amendment and accomplish what her husband, Billy Bob (our FIRST black president,) was unable to do. We'll get to this one in another post.



5 to 4... just one vote that stands between the sane and the idiotic.

Solyndra -- Or, How Green Grows Obimbo's Campaign Slush Fund.

Too big to fail?  Yeah, this is where I want MY money going to.  From  townhall.com.

Newly released communications regarding the loan approval for Solyndra, the now failed California solar energy company, show direct intervention by an Energy Department adviser and Obama campaign fundraiser, and raise new questions of possible involvement by Rahm Emanuel and the President.  As more is learned, it becomes increasingly clear that the Administration used the Stimulus, and specifically the green energy loan program, as a campaign slush fund to distribute billions of dollars like party favors to supporters and to grandstand for re-election to a perceived constituency.
By mid-2009, the White House was obsessing to make headlines with an announcement of a $535 million loan to Solyndra as the first of many green energy loans in the DOE's pipeline that would be funded by the recently passed Stimulus.  Initially the staff tried to schedule an announcement by Obama, and later as approval was delayed, they shifted to the Vice-President. 
"Ron said this morning that the POTUS definitely wants to do this (or Rahm definitely wants the POTUS to do this?)," a White House staffer told an Obama scheduler on August 17, 2009 according to The Washington Post.  This was a reference to Ron Klain, Chief of Staff at that time for the Vice-President. "Rahm" refers to Rahm Emanuel, Chief of Staff to the President. 
The Solyndra loan was finally approved in September 2009 over a plethora of warnings and objections from within the Department of Energy, the Office of Management and Budget, and numerous private and solar industry experts.  
Following the company's collapse, questions have haunted the White House of possible political corruption and cronyism as investigations revealed that executives and investors in Solyndra were also significant donors to the Obama campaign with repeated access to top White House officials.  In addition, critics charge that the administration disregarded objective financial analysis, and blindly threw billions of taxpayer dollars at green energy companies like Solyndra with little chance of success. 
Oblivious to the warnings from his own White House advisers that the company was in serious trouble and would run out of cash in September, 2010 (and it did), Obama visited the Solyndra headquarters in May 2010 and hailed it as "leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future."  
The Washington Post  is also reporting that Steve Spinner, a major Obama 2008 campaign fundraiser, later appointed by the White House to "advise" the Department of Energy regarding the green energy loan program, applied heavy pressure on DOE officials for approval of the $535 million loan guarantee for Solyndra. 
"How (expletive) hard is this?  What is he waiting for?" Spinner wrote to a DOE official by email on Aug. 28, 2009 questioning why the Solyndra application was not already approved.  "I have the OVP (Office of the Vice-President) and the WH (White House) breathing down my neck on this.  They are getting itchy to get involved." 
Later the same day, Spinner asked the same DOE official to "walk over there and force him to give you the answer." 
In another exchange just minutes after getting an email from Solyndra, Spinner fired off a message to the DOE officials asking if the White House budget office (OMB) had completed their review.  "Any word on OMB?  Solyndra's getting nervous," he wrote.  
The loan was pushed through, and on September 4, 2009 Joe Biden announced by video link the deal as the "unprecedented investment this Administration is making in renewable energy and exactly what the Recovery Act (Stimulus) is all about." 
Spinner's involvement is in direct contradiction of previous representations by the DOE.  Spinner had specifically recused himself from the Solyndra application because his wife's law firm, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, represented the company on the DOE loan and pocketed $2.4 million in legal fees for their efforts.  
The AP reports that an administration official, speaking on condition that he not be identified because of ongoing investigations in the evolving scandal, said that Spinner "clearly was actively involved in facilitating between DOE and OMB." 
Joe Biden was partially correct -- unfortunately.  Solyndra is typical of what the billions of Stimulus dollars tossed around by the Obama Administration was "all about" -- about waste, cronyism, and corruption.  The taxpayer is on the hook for $535 million, but before this is done some once big shots in Washington will deservedly be cut down to size.
As Dizzy Dean (and probably the greatest linguist of all times) used to say, "Who woulda thunk it?"

Eric Holder: “How I’ve Managed To Stay Out Of Jail... So Far.”

As an American tax paying citizen, I hold YOU, Eric Holder -- and any other present ‘administration’ officials responsible for Operation Fast and Furious, as an accessory to murder. So far, you’ve got the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry on your hands, Holder. That’s not counting the more than 200+ deaths that Pinal County, Ariz., Sheriff Paul Babeu says that he figures came from Operation Fast and Furious.





The Justice Department says that you get information, updates, memos and briefings on a daily basis but that you don’t always read them all. My question is, “Why not?”

What, exactly, are you there for if you’re not going to oversee what you were hired to head up? The way it works in ‘real life’ is, crap rises to the top. In your case, Holder, it seems to have worked both ways.

Personally, I don’t see this type of operation as one that the ATF could have authorized on their own. It HAD to have had your fingerprints all over it, Holder. Just based on the people that have talked -- and about what they’ve talked about -- within the ATF, tells me that.

Another question I have is, how much did YOUR boss -- the Chief Idiot of the United States -- know about all of this? More than we’ll EVER know, I’m sure.



In my lifetime, I’ve been through a lot of administrations but NONE as corrupt, greedy, incompetent and as thoroughly disgusting as THIS one. Having gone through the Carter and Clinton years, somehow, this was still easy to say!

The ONLY person I see doing his job, and who HAS TO BE the most UNDERPAID person in the present ‘administration,’ is White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. How he can manage to shovel out the BS he does, day in and day out, I’ll never know. 

How Carney sleeps at night is something that I’d like to know, too. My nightmares are only about Viet Nam.

Whose Side Is He On?

I gotta admit straight out -- I robbed this. Well... sort of.

After editing for spelling, punctuation, grammatical errors, run on sentences, incomplete thoughts and a WHOLE LOT of rewrites... I may as well have written it.

The headline was even wrong; ‘WHOSE,’ not ‘WHO’S.’

And, of course, I HAVE TO ADD the cartoons!

The basic idea is here, though.

Politically, Obama Obimbo* is about as coordinated as a monkey humping a football covered in Crisco.
On one hand, you’ve got these Wall Street protests that Obama Obimbo* supports because he’s anti-capitalist, anti-American and anti-Big Business.
Then, you’ve got Obama Obimbo* supporting the unions who called for violence against the Tea Party. 
Then, AGAIN, you’ve got Obama Obimbo* claiming he’s on the side of the little guy; that’s what all of his political rhetoric has been about. Never mind that a bunch of idiots voted for him AFTER he said that his plan would produce “no more” than 8% unemployment (translation: “I’m going to create unemployment.”)
You’ve ALSO got the Obama Obimbo* who wants collection agencies to be able to call cell phones to force people to pay their debts because that is what would help the economy. 
Who’s Whose* side is this guy on?  I thought Big Business was the problem with them taking money from the little guy! 
I thought we were supposed to get everything for free. Lets recap: you won’t have to worry about gas in your car or paying your house mortgage -- probably because you won’t have a car or a house to mortgage. So, here you go... 
 
I’m not even that astute a political commentator, but this guy, Obama Obimbo,* just makes it too easy.

*There... I fixed THAT, too.
