Rush Limbaugh at CPAC Live & From The Back of the Room

The line was a long one to get into the Regency Ballroom to hear the Voice of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh. The line stretched for empty seats to become available for up to two hours prior to his speech.
It seemed as if I'd have to settle for the overflow room, but the moment the first bass notes of the Pretenders "My City Was Gone" played, the doors opened and a few of us were let in. The energy in that room was higher than any rock concert I've ever been to.

It was an enthusiastic, energetic, standing room only crowd in the Regency Ballroom who heard Rush speak.
Rush began his "first nationally televised press conference," (a phrase he repeated often, no doubt to tweak liberals watching on CSPAN, CNN and FOX) to describe for Americans who conservatives really are....well, in case you missed it, here it is.

The main theme from Rush was how what has made this nation great, our freedom, is under assault from within. The concept of unlimited potential and achievement in individuals is under assault and punished by liberal Democrats.

Rush concluded with expanding on the remark which has the liberal media in a tizzy, that he wants Obama to fail, reminding us that liberals hoped for President Bush's failure and for our military to fail, noting in particular "Dingy" Harry Reid stating the "war is lost."

Why shouldn't we want Obama to fail? His plans are not in the best interest of the nation.

From the response to Rush's speech and the record breaking attendance at CPAC this year (around 9,000 is what I heard), don't anyone tell you that conservatism is dead.

Live Blogging At CPAC--Updated With Photos

I'm typing this on internet row in the Exhibition Hall at the last day of CPAC in Washington DC. So much going on.
Rick Santorum, former Senator of Pennsylvannia just spoke. I just met him (no, that's not me pictured above) and "The Great One," Mark Levin. Also have just met Skye from Midnight Blue, and visited Bloggers Row.

Joe the Plumber is here, autographing his book, as is William Bennett.
Attended a talk on New Media and Talk Radio with WMAL host Chris Plante among the panelists. Another person on the panel, Kerri Houston, brought duct tape to the podium and referred to the so-called "Fairness Doctrine" as the "Duct Tape" Doctrine. Lori Roman, who was also on the panel, mentioned the website where there is a pledge for local leaders, mayors, etc to sign, pledging they will not use their power to infringe upon the citizens' freedom to listen.

Rush Limbaugh, coming up as the keynote address!

I'll have photos and other comments to post when I get home.

UPDATE: 1 p.m. EDT Ann Coulter has just brought the house down here and is currently taking questions. She should be back this way in a few for a book signing. Some of her one-liners include how Democrats compare Obama to Lincoln & Reagan because there "isn't a Democrat worthy enough to compare him to."

She wrapped up by saying "Obama may be the second coming, but his policies will ensure that there will be no second term coming."
Ann Coulter signing books.
The Conservatism 2.0 conference held by Pajamas Media had an interesting format, a conservative version of The View, with Michelle Malkin, Kellyanne Conway, Jeri Thompson (wife of Fred) . Their guests were the one and only Fred Thompson, Robert Davi and Dr. Helen of Pajamas Media.

Several lawmakers were there. I happened upon Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama talking to a group of young conservatives.

Joe the Plumber at Washington Tea Party At Lafayette Park

Due to outside circumstances that required my attention all this morning, I'm unable to make the Tea Party in Lafayette Park this afternoon.

Jonn at This Ain't Hell is there and is liveblogging throughout the afternoon. So is Michelle Malkin, who has posted some photos on her page as well.

Here's video Jonn took of Joe the Plumber, who is at the rally, as well as at CPAC, I understand.

In other news, National Association of Realtors (h/t my sister) has come out in opposition to the Obama plan of cutting the mortgage interest deduction.
A small section of the sweeping budget plan has the potential to become a major impediment to a recovery in real estate markets across the nation. NAR is 100% opposed to the provision that modifies the Mortgage Interest Deduction and is prepared to use its formidable array of resources against its enactment.

As currently drafted, the plan changes the Mortgage Interest Deduction by reducing the amount of mortgage deductibility on families earning over $250,000. This proposed change in the Mortgage Interest Deduction will result in further erosion of home prices and home values. If this proposal is enacted it will set of a new round of price depreciation, will cause greater distress on the balance sheets of banks as the collateral value of mortgage backed securities declines. A second credit crisis could emerge before the first one is resolved.

As you read this NAR is launching a multiphase plan of action to eliminate this provision from the budget plan. In the next 24 hours, NAR will be expressing our concerns directly to President Obama, to all members of the United States House of Representatives and the Senate, placing advertisements in the publications read by Washington, DC decision makers. Additionally, NAR will be forming a coalition with other groups affected by this proposal.

This communication is the first salvo of our response, we will continue to update you as the situation and events warrant.

Washington Tea Party Location Changed To Lafayette Park

In case you haven't heard (and are planning to be in the DC area tomorrow) the Washington Tea Party scheduled for noon to 2 p.m. at the Washington Monument has changed locations. I will be held at Lafayette Park, on the north side of the White House.

Closest DC Metro stations are Orange and Blue line McPherson Square Station and the Farragut West Station.

A note in my Facebook account said at least 400 people are planning to attend.

Other tea parties will happen across the nation, and online (Facebook, etc). Michelle Malkin has a list.

Bobby Jindal Gets The Sarah Palin Treatment from Liberals, MSM, RINOs

That is, those "tolerant" liberals believe if you're a conservative woman or person of color, you belong at the back of the bus or you're a sellout.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, an Indian-American who is a rising star in the Republican Party, gave the GOP response to the Barack Hussein Obama "Rape of the Union" Address. Before he even uttered one word, the attacks began.

"Oh God," was an audible whisper viewers who were watching MSNBC heard as Jindal approached the podium.

That whisper came from the network's blowhard (and former Tip O'Neill aide) Chris Matthews, who Ann Coulter stated probably wants to have sex with Barack Obama (I think Ann is half right. Matthews does wish that, but is so in love with "That One" he probably pleasures himself everyday looking at Obama's picture).

Matthews even went further, making a racially-charged statement below which would have landed him in trouble, had he been, say, a conservative talking about a minority liberal.
They had to outsource the response tonight, the Republican party. They had to outsource to someone who had nothing to do with Congress because the Republicans in Congress had nothing to do with the programs he was talking about tonight or the record he referred to.

But as NewsBusters points out:
Jindal was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 2004 to 2006. Furthermore, Republican governors are quite important members of the party. The idea that the GOP was bringing in an outsider is flat out wrong.

Additionally, you have to ask if Chris Matthews is just ignorant or just to partisan to care? Democrat Governors Kathleen Sebelius (Kansas), Tim Kaine (Virginia's now part-time gov) and Gary Locke (Washington) gave responses to President Bush's addresses.

Michelle Malkin writes about another Jindal hit from the walking definition of "mean and ugly" Helen Thomas.
Helen Thomas has been gabbing with a film crew this morning, according to Washington Times White House correspondent Christina Bellantoni.

Bellantoni just posted this on Twitter:

“Bobby Jindal was ‘pitiful,’ Helen Thomas tells film crew, right before making a ‘Slum dog Millionaire’ crack.”

The media even found "conservatives" (meaning RINOs) to use in attacking Jindal, as did A(O)P:
Insane. Childish. Disaster. And those were some of the kinder comments from political pundits about Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and his response to President Barack Obama's speech to Congress on Tuesday night. Jindal, 37, a Rhodes scholar and son of Indian immigrants, is considered a rising star in Republican ranks and a likely 2012 presidential candidate.

...David Brooks, a conservative New York Times columnist who has criticized aspects of the stimulus plan, nonetheless called Jindal's arguments "insane" and tone-deaf given the dire economic challenges the country faces.

"To come up in this moment in history with a stale, 'Government is the problem, you can't trust the federal government' is just a disaster for the Republican Party," Brooks said on PBS'"The NewsHour With Jim Lehrer.""It's not where the country is, it's not where the future of the country is."

Fox News commentator Juan Williams focused on Jindal's delivery.

"It came off as amateurish, and even the tempo in which he spoke was singsongy," Williams said, adding that the content of the speech was "very simplistic and almost childish."

First of all, Williams is a liberal at NPR. David Brooks is a RINO who supports amnesty for illegal immigration, attacked Sarah Palin's candidacy during the 2008 election and was one of the phony conservatives who dined with Mr. Obama recently. Far from being conservative, Brooks is an elitist, country-club Republican who can be conveniently used by the liberal MSM to attack candidates and positions popular with the base.

What's next? More gas station jokes, or references to 7 Elevens and Dunkin Donuts?

Hearst May Close SF Chronicle

Going down the crapper (MarketWatch).
The Hearst Corp. said Tuesday that unless the San Francisco Chronicle can undertake "critical" cost cutting measures including job cuts within weeks, the company will be forced to sell or close the newspaper. Hearst said the Chronicle lost more than $50 million last year and added that, "this year's losses to date are worse." The Chronicle has had major losses each year since 2001, Hearst said.

If the notoriously Left-wing Comicle is closed, I can't help but say, "Good riddance!"

Or, they'll probably run to "Do Nothing" Nancy Pelosi and beg her for a bailout.

Washington Compost Prints More Obama Propaganda; Doesn't Mention Slipping Approval Rating

The Washington Compost today proved once again how it is the Capitol City's Obama gush rag.

Large majorities of Americans in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll support his $787 billion economic stimulus package and the recently unveiled $75 billion plan to stem mortgage foreclosures. Nearly seven in 10 poll respondents said Obama is delivering on his pledge to bring needed change to Washington, and about eight in 10 said he is meeting or exceeding their expectations.

Oh really? If that's the case, shouldn't the markets be excited and on an upward swing? That isn't the case, as indicated yesterday when Wall Street hit 1997 levels.

Not only that, the Gallup Poll (as reported in the LA Slimes Blog) shows "That One's" approval, though high, has slipped almost 10 percent (not reported in the Compost).

...Barack Obama's poll numbers have slid almost 10% already. According to the latest Gallup Poll, the new president's approval rating of 68% in January has slipped now to 63%, about average for recent new presidents one month in.

What isn't average, however, is Obama's new disapproval rating -- 24%, or 50% higher than the 16% average for a month-old new presidency.

And it's twice the 12% disapproval rate that Obama had last month.

...Obama's support has weakened among middle-class Americans, those touted during the campaign as benefiting from his promised tax cuts. Among that working crowd Obama's approval fell from 69% to 58%.

...What's surprising, as the astute Don Surber points out this morning, is that the gap between approval and disapproval is worse now for Obama than it was for the newly-departed Texan after his first month. Bush's differential gap was 41 points between approval and disapproval. Obama's is 39 points, still above Bill Clinton, who had the worst differential of 30 points. Carter again had the best after one month of 62. Richard Nixon had 54.

What about the massive amount on phone calls to Congressional offices against the "Porkulus" package, Washginton Compost?

Selective reporting, as only the Compost can do.

Associated (with Obama) Press Uses "That One's" Phoney Fiscal Responsibility Summit To Shoot Another Halo Photo

Oh jeez not this s**t again!

While reading e-mail, I was looking at the following news story below when my arrow key crossed over the "Obama Pledges to Slash Deficit" headline, the box with a photo came up.

From the caption on Yahoo News photos, Associated (with Obama) Press to the opportunity of this joke called the Fiscal Responsibility Summit (an oxymoron) to take the following photo.The latest in the media's obsessive "Obama Halo" photos, of which there are several other examples.

Which reminds me, Ann Coulter said the other night to Joy Behar that Chris Matthews wants to have sex with Barack Obama. Just Matthews? Hell, judging by these constant "halo" photos, Chrissy boy has a lot of competition.

What "Baghdad" Sean Penn's Oscar Winning Movie & Liberal Hollywood Didn't Tell You About Harvey Milk, His Ties To A Mass Murderer

"Milk," the movie about martyred gay San Francisco City Supervisor Harvey Milk, won two Oscars last night for Best Actor (Marin's resident Moonbat, Sean Penn) and Best Original Screenplay (Dustin Lance Black).

Just as Michael Moore's Oscar in 2003 was their political statement against the War in Iraq, liberal Hollywood gave Penn and Black their Oscars for the sole purpose of making a political statement. That is, slamming California voters, including the Mormon and Catholic Church for their support of Proposition Eight, limiting marriage between a man and a woman.

Penn, well known for his acute case of BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome), as well as flying the world to kiss the asses of anti-American dictators started his political rant, mocking conservatives as a bunch of rednecked homophobes. “You commie, homo-loving, sons of guns." Penn said, according to the San Francisco Sentinel. "I did not expect this and…I know how hard I make it to appreciate me. ...I think it is a good time for those who voted for the ban against gay marriage to sit and reflect and anticipate their great shame and the shame in their grandchildren’s eyes if they continue that way. We’ve got to have equal rights for everyone.”

Earlier in the evening, writer Black, like Penn, used his acceptance speech (without mentioning them) single out Catholics, Mormons and others who voted against Prop. 8 (CNN).
"If Harvey [Milk, the subject of the film] had not been taken from us 30 years ago, I think he would want me to say to all the gay and lesbian kids out there tonight who have been told they are less than by the churches, by the government, by their families, that you are beautiful, wonderful creatures of value, and that no matter what anyone tells you, God does love you and that very soon, I promise you, you will have equal rights, federally, across this great nation of ours."
If the Oscars even cared about truth and accuracy instead of political agendas, would the take back Black's gold statue for lies and half truths written in the film? Would Sean Penn not feel any guilt for portraying a character who wasn't what the movie made him out to be?

Kyle Smith of the New York Post pointed out yesterday in Oscar's Inconvenient Truths a couple of falsehoods in Milk, notably his contempt for religion (he said ("I would turn over in my grave if there was any kind of religious ceremony") and the violent rioting after the manslaughter sentence handed down to Dan White, the former SF City Supervisor who killed Milk and Mayor George Moscone.

Here's a more damaging truth missed by the Post's Smith, screenwriter Black, Penn and liberal Hollywood, how Harvey Milk stood by an individual who would commit the largest mass murder of Americans before 9/11, all for the sake of gaining political power.

That would be the Rev. Jim Jones of the Peoples Temple, who took 900 (mostly black) Bay Area citizens with him to Guyana in 1977. In November 1978, after Temple assassins killed Congressman Leo Ryan, a SF Examiner photographer, an NBC cameraman and some Temple defectors, Jones forced his followers to drink cyanide laced "FlavorAid" while those who refused were injected with the poison or were shot. Over 200 children were among the victims of this madman.

Harvey Milk used Jim Jones and the People Temple in his quest for political power, knowing full well they were dangerous people. In his biography of Milk, The Mayor of Castro Street, gay journalist Randy Shilts quotes Milk on Page 139 as saying about the Temple:
"Make sure you're always nice to the Peoples Temple," he admonished her. "If they ask you to do something, do it, and then send them a note thanking them for asking you to do it. They're weird and they're dangerous, and you never want to be on their bad side."

Shilts also writes Milk saying (page 178):
"They're weird, but they're good volunteers," Harvey told her. "You take help where it comes from, but don't trust them."

Below is a handwritten note from historical records by Harvey Milk to Jim Jones, stating, " name is cut into stone in support of you-& your people."

Here's a letter on City of San Francisco letterhead to then President Jimmy Carter singing the praises of Jim Jones and defending the future mass murderer against a paternity suit by two former Temple members.

How many people could be alive today had it not been for Harvey Milk, as well as George Moscone, the Burton brothers, Willie Brown and the San Francisco media (who until 1977 had shut down any expose on Jim Jones, including an eight part series in 1972 in the San Francisco Examiner) protecting Jim Jones? Why were these ties between Milk and Jones left out? According to an International Hearld Tribune article:
"It would take so much time to explain to people who Jim Jones was," said Dan Jinks, who with his business partner Bruce Cohen are among the movie's producers.

That sounds like a lame excuse to me. If Cohen, Black, Penn and others involved in Milk were honest, they'd admit it's all about ideology to them. The Left can never be made to look bad. As they did with Jim Jones, liberals are protecting the image of Harvey Milk as a "gay martyr," hiding any and all connections to the mass-murderer Jim Jones, his political ally.

Get Ready! Taxes Are About To Go Up & Obama Promising More, Plus Defense Cuts, In Next Budget

This news should cause the Dow Jones to fall another 2,000 points in the next month.

Reuters is reporting that, as he promised during the campaign, Barack Hussein Obama is going to let the Bush tax cuts expire.

Letting tax cuts expire means a tax increase for America's taxpayers (but they don't say that!).

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will allow tax breaks given to wealthier (sic) Americans under his predecessor, George W. Bush, to expire as scheduled rather than eliminate them sooner, an administration official said on Saturday.

Obama, who promised during his White House campaign to roll back tax cuts on people earning more than $250,000, also plans to boost tax collections from about 16 percent of the economy this year to 19 percent in 2013, the official said, confirming a Washington Post report on Obama's budget proposals for the 2010 fiscal year.

It's going to get worse, as Monsters& reports that Obama plans to cut the federal deficit (which he's kicking into the stratosphere) with tax increases and cuts in the one branch of the government liberals love to hate: the military.

Washington - US President Barack Obama plans to outline a budget next week that would cut the federal deficit in half over the next four years by raising taxes and cutting spending on the war in Iraq, newspaper reports said Saturday citing details from administration officials.

A summary of his budget plans, to be sent Thursday to the US Congress, will be 'sober in its assessments, honest in its accounting,' Obama said earlier Saturday in his weekly address to the nation.

...His budget for 2010 would target reducing the annual deficit to 1 trillion dollars and lower it to 533 billion dollars by 2013, or 3 per cent of the economy, a level endorsed by most economists for world governments, the Post reported.

The savings would come from winding down the war in Iraq and increasing tax collections by for example reversing the temporary tax cuts for the wealthy (sic), officials who spoke on condition of anonymity told the newspapers.

The idea of increased tax collections is likely to hit strong resistance from Republicans in Congress, who have the power in the Senate to carry out procedural moves to block a bill.

Notice how these Obama media outlets play the liberal class warfare card by saying only the "wealthiest Americans" received a tax cut from President Bush. These liberals learned a good lesson from Joseph Goebbels, that if you repeat a lie over and over again and it will become the truth. Because when liberal say they're going to raise taxes on "the rich," they really mean working Americans who carry most of the tax burdne.

Consider this. In 2004 (see graphic below), the top one percent (the eeeeevil rich) paid 37 percent of federal income taxes. The top 25 percent of Americans payed 85 percent of the federal tax burden. The bottom 50 percent of Americans paid (are you ready for this?) only three percent of the US tax burden!

Don't tell me the rich don't pay their fair share.

And why is it when we're in the middle of fighting a War on Terror (ooops! I forgot, the Obamabots won't even call it that), Hussein Obama is proposing cuts in fighting the war. Don't you feel safe now? America's safety has to be compromised so that Hussein Obama can pay for his socialist grand experiment.

Don't say we in the blogosphere didn't warn you of this many times in the past year.

So how are we the taxpayers supposed to pay for these tax increases?

Change we cannot afford!

"Chicago Tea Party" & CPAC Coming Next Weekend

Michelle Malkin, who has kept up with the anti-Porkulus movement, writes today how that spark is igniting like a fire around America.

Next Friday, in nearby Washington DC, as well as Chicago, Fayetteville NC, San Diego CA, Omaha NB, and other locales are planning "Chicago Tea Parties" (thanks to Rick Santelli of CNBC) to protest the stimulus.
Time: February 27, 2009 from 12pm to 1pmLocation: Chicago, Washington DC, other cities, TwitterGo to for all the info.

Co-sponsors of the events with #TCOT include #DONTGO, Smart Girl Politics, Americans for Tax Reform, Heartland Institute, and American Spectator Magazine. The tea parties will be “simultweeted” with the hashtag #teaparty. You can find me tweeting here.

There’s a Facebook page here for the DC Tea Party. I hear that PJTV will also be stepping up to the plate.

If you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, reader Mark Christopher Frimmel has come forward to put a Tea Party ‘09 event together. He put up an ad on Dallas Craigslist, has contacted local radio and TV, and wants you to be there. The protest will be held on the outside stage at The Cowtown Bar & Grill on Friday, Feb. 27, from 3pm to 7pm, located at 7108 Camp Bowie Blvd Fort Worth, TX. Music, food, and great fiscal conservative company guaranteed.

Are you in Georgia? Reader Patrick e-mails that he’s “getting a tax protest off the ground in Atlanta. I’d appreciate it if you’d pass on the word. The blog is” He needs your help. Calling Neal Boortz!

There's a good chance I'll be able to make the Friday rally, so I'll be able to bring photos and coverage from that day back here.

Next Saturday, as was the case last year, I will be in Washington DC for CPAC. That day, there will be speakers such as Rick Santorum, Phyllis Schlafly, Ann Coulter, the Conservative 2.0 Conference.

The featured event is the keynote speech by none other than the leader of the Conservative Movement, Rush Limbaugh!

Weather Channel Founder John Coleman Fights The Glo-BULL Warming Scam

There was something familiar about the face and name of John Coleman on a Good Magazine article "You Don't Need A Weatherman."

Yes, he was that weatherman I used to see in the late 1970's watching Good Morning America as I got ready for school and other Americans prepared for their daily lives.

Coleman started The Weather Channel in the early 1980's and was forced out. In recent years, TWC has become a leading propagandist in the cause of man-made glo-bull warming. Coleman is out front leading the fight against this scam. He writes articles and a blog on the subject and, as early as last year, claimed Algore should be sued to expose the glo-bull warming fraud.

Excerpts from the Good Magazine article:

When Coleman posted his first climate change brief online, he was surprised by the attention it got. “I thought I was the only one,” he says. “I started finding that there were plenty of people out there, it’s just that the media was ignoring them and the place to find them was on these little corners of the internet.” In May, 2008, an organization called the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine released a petition at the National Press Club, with the signatures of 31,000 scientists rejecting the U.N. consensus of man-made climate change. Nine thousand of the names reportedly belong to Ph.Ds.

Encouraged, he delivered a speech last March at the International Conference on Climate Change in New York where he said that Al Gore and others selling carbon credits should be sued for fraud. His hope, he said, was that the publicity from such a suit would potentially debunk climate change in a court room instead of waiting for the media to do its supposed due diligence.

...Among other things, it took drowning polar bears and the internet to get John Coleman firing on all cylinders. “Gradually there’s this build-up, this hysteria about global warming,” he says. “The Al Gore book comes out. The Al Gore movie comes out and starts winning awards. The U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change gets headline news status and starts issuing its predictions. The media is clamoring aboard and the next thing I know, it’s headline news every day, everywhere. And I’ve been studying it, reading stuff, and looking at it, and can’t figure out what the heck they’re talking about.”

“...From Y2K to killer bees—God, give us something to tell people their lives are coming to an end—cancer scare, HIV, whatever we’ve got—let’s go, Man, scare the hell out of people,” he says. “This is awful. Shame on them, scaring people. That’s deplorable.” According to Coleman, the media is biased and sloppy and perpetuates the climate change myth.

Coleman saw An Inconvenient Truth on DVD and he says he made it all the way through, but “not without screaming.” Gore’s film won two Oscars—one for best documentary—and in October, 2007, Gore and the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the Nobel Peace Prize. (”I have a friend who calls the Nobel Peace Prize the Liberal of the Year Award,” Coleman tells me.) Coleman seethed. Soon thereafter, he posted a missive on’s “Coleman’s Corner.”

“So I get indignant and I write that blog and throw it on the website,” he says. “That’s kind of totally absorbed my life since.”

“...Environmentalists, they think CO2 is a pollutant,” he says, and then makes an act of exhaling. “There’s a little pollution for you,” he says, and then points in the general vicinity of vegetation that isn’t looking all that vibrant (unless brown is vibrant). “See that bush beside you there? It’d be dead without CO2.” Without CO2, he says, “We wouldn’t have any food. Humans couldn’t exist. CO2 is vital to life.” He pauses for a moment and then raises his voice an octave. “My God! Calling that a pollutant? Ridiculous.”

“...It’s a trace. How does that destroy the planet?” says Coleman. “And they publish their papers and scream and the media says, Oh God, the end is near! And it’s all baloney; there isn’t anything to it. It turns out to be sheer folly. But it all comes back to CO2—they haven’t got anything else.”

“Have temperatures gone up? No. Is global warming sweeping the planet? No. Is the ice melting at the poles? No. Is there any proof that it’s creating significant impact? No. Can you produce a computer model that predicts that it will? Oh yeah, anyone can manipulate a computer model, and they have.”
Common sense America needs to hear from a weatherman with a passion for the weather.

"Historians" Rush To Judgement On Bush 43's Presidency--Sixth From Last. Miserable Failure Carter Ranks Higher

Liberal historians, prodded no doubt by the liberal media outlets Associated for Obama Press & CSPAN, are out to judge George W. Bush's Presidency only a month after he left office.

The result is 36th out of 42, as reported in the A(O)P article on the Bush-hating MSNBC website.
WASHINGTON - Just days after Americans honored the 200th anniversary of his birth, 65 historians ranked Abraham Lincoln as the best U.S. president.

Former President George W. Bush, who left office last month, was ranked 36th out of the 42 men who had been chief executive by the end of 2008, according to a survey conducted by the cable channel C-SPAN.

Bush scored lowest in international relations, where he was ranked 41st, and in economic management, where he was ranked 40th. His highest ranking, 24th, was in the category of pursuing equal justice for all. He was ranked 25th in crisis leadership and vision and agenda setting.

Here's the list. To show how much of a sham this Presidential ranking is, Jimmy Carter, apologist for Islamofascist terrorists and Communist dictators, is ranked #25, ahead of Dubya. Are you kidding me? Carter's one term represented the worst Presidency of the 20th Century, a time when our enemies grew stronger, Islamofascism was born with the overthrow of the Shah of Iran, gas lines were a plenty and unemployment and inflation were near (or above) double digits (The current Obama Administration is promising to outdo the Carter years).

Ronald Reagan, Carter's successor, is ranked number 10, though I believe he deserves a higher ranking, at least the top five.

Note that Harry Truman is ranked number five. Top ten, yes, top five, I'm not sure. But I will say this. Truman left office with low approval ratings and now is revered by historians. The same will happen to George W. Bush, when historians who are not blinded by their liberal ideology and resentment over the 2000 election will see how he brought the nation out of two crises, 9/11 and the economic aftermath.

Rick Santelli: Working Class Hero & New Name To Obama's & Lib Media's Enemies List

Yesterday morning, Rick Santelli of CNBC hit a nerve with millions across the Heartland by taking on the stimulus and mortgage bailout supported by the Obama Administration, promising to start a "Chicago Tea Party."

Leave it to the Obama White House to act in denial towards the lack of confidence in their handling the economy and the mortgage mess not just on Wall Street, but on Main Street. In the clip below is Obama Spokesmouth Robert Gibbs, the man who can't talk straight. Gibbs took the opportunity to attack Santelli with a venemous disdain dripping from his lips, while giving (as only Gibbs can) a fumbling, bumbling analysis of what Obama's Housing Plan is not.

Clearly, dissent and criticism of "That One" is not allowed. Santelli has now joined Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity (whom Gibbs attacked last year with untrue smears) on the Obama White House Enemies List, one not seen since the days of the Nixon Administration.

The only difference is, Obama will be able to get away with things Nixon never dreamed of, thanks to liberal media asses like MSNBC's Chris Matthews, who had his opportunity at Santelli below:

Evil Conservative Radio nails it:

That's the scary thing about these kinds of people. Call them progressives or socialists, or just plain liberals, but underneath there is a coercive, violent totalitarianism and a deep disrespect for anyone else's ideas.
I wonder how much longer it will be before Santelli has his credit report, tax information, former addresses and all kinds of information thrown onto the internet and the liberal media as happened to Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber.

After One Month Of Obama: Dow Down 2,000 Points, O's Approval Down 19 Percent

One month into the Era of Hopenchange, ominous signs are ahead.

First, it was the 500 point tumble on Inauguration Day, the worst since records have been kept. But, as ButAsForMe reports, the Dow Jones has fallen 2,000 points since Barack Hussein Obama's election.
Obama’s fearmongering may be good politics, but it is bad history and bad economics.

Repeated warnings from the White House about a coming economic apocalypse aren’t likely to raise consumer and investor expectations for the future. In fact, they have contributed to the continuing decline in consumer confidence that is restraining a spending pickup. Beyond that, fearmongering can trigger a political stampede to embrace a “recovery” package that delivers a lot less than it promises. A more cool-headed assessment of the economy’s woes might produce better policies.

The air of optimism ginned up by the adoring Obama media is wearing off on the American public, according to the Gallup Poll. In the graph below, from Our Country Deserves Better PAC, Obama's personal approval rating has fallen 19 points, and that's after one month of his Presidency.

Yes, Obama was change all right. Change we cannot afford.

One Good Reason To Vote For GOP Majority in 2010: Give Back The "Porkulus"

If the socialist policies and surrender to Islamofascists insanity of the first month of "Hopenchange" isn't enough to encourage you to vote for a Republican majority, here's something that will.

Gateway Pundit links to the following video from Sean Hannity's FOX News show of Sean's interview with Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas, who says Republicans will not only cancel the Government Stimulus package if elected to the majority in 2010, they'll give the remainder back to us, the taxpayers.

"I would like to say tonight that if the American people will let the Republicans back in charge, the 60% of this bill that won't be spent until after the next election, we'll cut it off and let it go to the Americans."
Sounds like not only a great idea, but pure common sense.

Except if you're certain Democrats, who will scream R-AAAAAAA-CIST at the very thought of the American people (not the Government) having power over their own economic destinies.

Now It'd Have Been OK With Liberals Only If It Was Bush.....

Michelle Malkin writes the following today about "Crushing Dissent In The Age of Obama:"
You can’t use crazed, frenzied chimps in cartoons to criticize the crazed, frenzied passage of the stimulus. (Yes, there are now protests being staged against the NYPost.)

You can’t say “Thug Thizzle” or “That One” or “Tricked Out” or wear white or put Franklin Raines in a campaign ad

And, now, you can’t make statements about abortion on your bumper that criticize His High Holiness without risking arrest:

"An Oklahoma City police officer wrongly pulled over a man last week and confiscated an anti-President Barack Obama sign the man had on his vehicle.

The officer misinterpreted the sign as threatening, said Capt. Steve McCool, of the Oklahoma City Police Department, and took the sign, which read “Abort Obama, not the unborn.”Chip Harrison said he was driving to work when a police car followed him for several miles and then signaled for him to pull over.

”I pulled over, knowing I hadn’t done anything wrong,” Harrison said in a recent phone interview.

When the officer asked Harrison if he knew why he had been pulled over, Harrison said he did not.

”They said, ‘It’s because of the sign in your window,’” Harrison said."
OK, mabye I wouldn't recommend an "Abort Obama" bumpersticker, but I find the hypocrisy over that sign, like the referenced New York Post cartoon stunning. In regards to that cartoon, why doesn't anyone realize that Obama did not write the "Stimulus" bill, it was Congress. Plus, as StopTheACLU notes, there is an old parable about "a million monkeys on a million typewriters."

Try telling that to the phony Rev. Al Sharpton, who was silent when Condoleezza Rice was slurred in cartoons as a big-lipped mammy, as well as a "house nigga."

Just as the outrage over the cartoon is phony, tell me which liberal was ever arrested with these bumper stickers.

I remember a car parked in Northgate Shopping Center in Terra Linda with this bumper sticker.

Here's some liberals at Democrat Underground talking about their anti-Bush bumpersticker and how they'd like to see him stoned (and I don't think they mean get him "high").

Were any of these people questioned and investigated by the police and Secret Service for stating President Bush should be aborted?

And the liberals who are so full of peace and love made t-shirts with that saying.

Gateway Pundit has more "Abort Bush" signs which probably didn't get anyone a date with the Secret Service.

Obama's Race Baiting AG Says America is "Nation Of Cowards" On Race

So much for "transcending race" in the era of Hopenchange (Politico).

Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday that despite advances, the United States remains “a nation of cowards” on issues involving race.

“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been, and we, I believe, continue to be, in too many ways, a nation of cowards,” Holder said in remarks to his staff in honor of Black History Month. His comments appear on a transcript provided by the Justice Department.

“Even as we fight a war against terrorism; deal with the reality of electing an African-American, for the first time, as the president of the United States; and deal with other significant issues of the day, the need to confront our racial past and to understand our racial present, and to understand the history of African people in this country — that all endures,” the attorney general added.

Ever notice that it's always liberals who are obsessed with race? How many times during the campaign were we told that a vote for McLame was a vote for racism. You couldn't say the word "terrorist," "community organizer," "That One" without being labeled a racist. Despite all the good will of America in repairing race relations, it is always liberals and Democrats, the party of the KKK, Jim Crow and segregation, who are still obsessed with race.

Why didn't Attorney General Holder go a step further and have his speech followed by another G*d damn America sermon from Obama's Racist Reverend, Jeremiah Wright?

First "Porkulus," Now Homeowner Bailouts: "Hope & Change" Is The Triumph of the Parasite

Despite all our efforts, the phone calls, faxes, petitions and protests against the "Porkulus" bill, the "elites" in Washington DC have decided they know better than us how our economy can be revived and rammed it down our throats last Friday.

Today, one day after signing the "Porkulus" (or "Government Stimulus") bill, our dear leader, Mr. Obama, now wants to go even further, spending another $79 billion to bailout people who had no business buying a house but bought one anyway.

Why? Liberalism says you have to give these people loans, even if they can't pay them back. That's what got us into this hole. Fannie, Freddie, etc, etc.

Now, you and I who have played by the rules, worked hard, tried to stay within our means are having to shill out more of our own money to benefit those who feel like they are owed something, or those who cannot or will not support themselves by their own means.

Is it any wonder the last few days I've had "The Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand on my mind? In particular, the courtroom scene where the protagonist, architect Howard Roark defends his belief in individualism over falling prey to the whims of the "collective."

(Excerpts from the Novel version)

“Nothing is given to man on earth. Everything he needs has to be produced. And here man faces his basic alternative: he can survive in only one of two ways—by the independent work of his own mind or as a parasite fed by the minds of others. The creator originates. The parasite borrows. The creator faces nature alone. The parasite faces nature through an intermediary.

“The creator’s concern is the conquest of nature. The parasite’s concern is the conquest of men.

“The creator lives for his work. He needs no other men. His primary goal is within himself. The parasite lives second-hand. He needs others. Others become his prime motive.

“...The ‘common good’ of a collectivea race, a class, a statewas the claim and justification of every tyranny ever established over men. Every major horror of history was committed in the name of an altruistic motive. Has any act of selfishness ever equaled the carnage perpetrated by disciples of altruism? Does the fault lie in men’s hypocrisy or in the nature of the principle? The most dreadful butchers were the most sincere. They believed in the perfect society reached through the guillotine and the firing squad. Nobody questioned their right to murder since they were murdering for an altruistic purpose. It was accepted that man must be sacrificed for other men. Actors change, but the course of the tragedy remains the same. A humanitarian who starts with declarations of love for mankind and ends with a sea of blood. It goes on and will go on so long as men believe that an action is good if it is unselfish. That permits the altruist to act and forces his victims to bear it. The leaders of collectivist movements ask nothing for themselves. But observe the results.

“Now observe the results of a society built on the principle of individualism. This, our country. The noblest country in the history of men. The country of greatest achievement, greatest prosperity, greatest freedom. This country was not based on selfless service, sacrifice, renunciation or any precept of altruism. It was based on a man’s right to the pursuit of happiness. His own happiness. Not anyone else’s. A private, personal, selfish motive. Look at the results. Look into your own conscience.

“...Now, in our age, collectivism, the rule of the second-hander and second-rater, the ancient monster, has broken loose and is running amuck. It has brought men to a level of intellectual indecency never equaled on earth. It has reached a scale of horror without precedent. It has poisoned every mind. It has swallowed most of Europe. It is engulfing our country.

“I am an architect. I know what is to come by the principle on which it is built. We are approaching a world in which I cannot permit myself to live.

“...It had to be said. The world is perishing from an orgy of self-sacrificing.

“I wished to come here and say that the integrity of a man’s creative work is of greater importance than any charitable endeavor. Those of you who do not understand this are the men who’re destroying the world."

That is what we've seen in at least the last week: the triumph of the parasite. We saw it as members of a town hall meeting with Mr. Obama last week took their turn at the microphone to scream "Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme!" Some of these second-raters were rewarded with a new radio gig or new housing (even when they'd refused earlier attempts). What a field day for the adoring Obama media. Ask "That One" and Ye Shall Receive.

We saw the champion of the parasite and the altruist in demagogues like Upchuck Schumer, that arrogant ambulance chaser turned Senator from New York. Schumer not only falsely claimed Americans didn't care what was in the stimulus, but also demagogue "Porkulus" opponents on the Senate floor as heartless oafs more interested in rewarding the so-called "rich" with tax cuts than funding health care and new infrastructure projects. Of course, when liberals define "rich" that means anyone who has a job or isn't a deadbeat. The liberals never care about running up a debt when it comes to spending our money. Yet let us demand some of what we pay in taxes back, and we're called "selfish" and told the government "can't afford it."

Well, my household is far from being rich. But I'll tell you, those tax cuts during the Bush years helped working families more than the $13 we'll get from "That One." Liberals complained with Bush, you'd only get enough to buy a muffler. Hell, with Obama, you can't even afford a decent compact disc.

How far we’ve fallen from when Democrat John F. Kennedy reminded Americans to “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” I wonder how JFK would feel to see his daughter and surviving brother supporting an empty suit who leads the parasites in chanting “We want some pie.”

Democrat Waxman: "Oversight Of The Internet Is One Of His Top Priorities"

It isn't just talk radio that the Democrats want to come after with the "Censorship Doctrine," it is also the Internet, meaning blogs big, small, and in-between who are critical of the era of HopeyChange.

The American Spectator (via FreeRepublic) writes how one of the most Left-wing, partisan Democrats (and winner of the most obnoxious nostrils contest) Henry Waxman wants to go after conservatism on the Internet.

Senior FCC staff working for acting Federal Communications Commissioner Michael Copps held meetings last week with policy and legislative advisers to House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman to discuss ways the committee can create openings for the FCC to put in place a form of the "Fairness Doctrine" without actually calling it such.

Waxman is also interested, say sources, in looking at how the Internet is being used for content and free speech purposes. "It's all about diversity in media," says a House Energy staffer, familiar with the meetings. "Does one radio station or one station group control four of the five most powerful outlets in one community? Do four stations in one region carry Rush Limbaugh, and nothing else during the same time slot? Does one heavily trafficked Internet site present one side of an issue and not link to sites that present alternative views? These are some of the questions the chairman is thinking about right now, and we are going to have an FCC that will finally have the people in place to answer them."

...The House Energy and Commerce Committee is also looking at how it can put in place policies that would allow it greater oversight of the Internet. "Internet radio is becoming a big deal, and we're seeing that some web sites are able to control traffic and information, while other sites that may be of interest or use to citizens get limited traffic because of the way the people search and look for information," says on committee staffer. "We're at very early stages on this, but the chairman has made it clear that oversight of the Internet is one of his top priorities."

"This isn't just about Limbaugh or a local radio host most of us haven't heard about," says Democrat committee member. "The FCC and state and local governments also have oversight over the Internet lines and the cable and telecom companies that operate them. We want to get alternative views on radio and TV, but we also want to makes sure those alternative views are read, heard and seen online, which is becoming increasingly video and audio driven. Thanks to the stimulus package, we've established that broadband networks -- the Internet -- are critical, national infrastructure. We think that gives us an opening to look at what runs over that critical infrastructure."

Also involved in "brainstorming" on "Fairness Doctrine and online monitoring has been the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, which has published studies pressing for the Fairness Doctrine, as well as the radical, which has been speaking to committee staff about policies that would allow them to use their five to six million person database to mobilize complaints against radio, TV or online entities they perceive to be limiting free speech or limiting opinion.

Center For American Progress is a brainchild of Mort Halperin and George Soro$ led by John Podesta, a Clintonoid who was also in charge of the Obama transition team (and an apparent believer in UFOs). CAP also helped launch Media Matters, led by David Crock, one time alleged conservative. Crock has spent the last few years using Media Matters to attack alleged "incivility" in conservative media and attempting to get certain talk hosts banned, while ignoring the hate and assassination threats toward members of the Bush Administration broadcast on liberal talk radio.

Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, Hillary? Here, you have a Vast Left Wing Gestapo with links to Congress and the White House. They have seen how mobilized the American people are against the so-called "stimulus" and other items on the liberal agenda such as surrender in the War on Terror. As a result, they're coming after all of us on radio and the Internet, because dissent against "That One" and the Democrats will not be tolerated.

Keep in mind these are the same people who claimed "Dissent is Patriotic" and claimed (with not proof) that a "cold chill" was coming from the Bush White House against liberals who slandered President Bush.

Founder Of TV Network For "Improving Image of Muslims" Arrested After Wife Beheaded

So much for the goal of improving Islam's image (The Buffalo News).

Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband -- an influential member of the local Muslim community -- reported her death to police Thursday.

Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.

"He came to the police station at 6:20 p.m. [Thursday] and told us that she was dead," Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz said late this morning.

Muzzammil Hassan told police that his wife was at his business, Bridges TV, on Thorn Avenue in the village. Officers went to that location and discovered her body.

Muzzammil Hassan is the founder and chief executive officer of Bridges TV, which he launched in 2004, amid hopes that it would help portray Muslims in a more positive light.

The killing apparently occurred some time late Thursday afternoon. Detectives still are looking for the murder weapon.

"Obviously, this is the worst form of domestic violence possible," Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III said today.

Authorities say Aasiya Hassan recently had filed for divorce from her husband.

"She had an order of protection that had him out of the home as of Friday the 6th [of February]," Benz said.

Muzzammil Hassan was arraigned before Village Justice Deborah Chimes and sent to the Erie County Holding Center.

Will this tragic story get much airplay on the mainstream media? Probably not. The media in this country doesn’t like to report any news that puts a Muslim in bad light.
A December 2004 article on Bridges TV by Robert Spencer notes the following:
...the Bridges TV website asks inquirers to “check the legitimacy of Bridges TV” with, among others, Nihad Awad, Executive Director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR); Aleem Rahman, President & CEO of, which it identifies as “the largest Muslim Web site in North America”; and Alex Kronemer, who created and produced the PBS documentary Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet.

Questions about CAIR’s true commitment to moderation have swirled for years, unanswered by Awad and other CAIR officials. Awad himself helped found CAIR after working at the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), where he was public relations director. A former FBI counterterrorism official, Oliver “Buck” Revell, has called the IAP “a front organization for Hamas that engages in propaganda for Islamic militants.” Terrorism expert Steve Emerson testified before a Senate committee on terrorism in 1998 that “the IAP has issued Hamas communiques calling for the killing of Jews, produced training videos for Hamas operatives, and actually recruited for Hamas in the United States.” In 1994 Awad declared: “I am in support of the Hamas movement.” This was well after numerous murderous Hamas attacks on civilians, which were duly celebrated on Hamas’s website until some more PR-minded person took it all down some time ago.

Here's a photo of Awad speaking at an International ANSWER anti-Israel, anti-War on Terror rally in 2002 with the Hezbollah flag nearby. But as in the mention of his arrest, don't expect the media to do any probing of this member of the politically correct "religion" called Islam.

GOP Leader John Boehner "Not One Member Has Read This" (Porkulus Bill)

YouTube has a video of House Minority Leader John Boehner ripping the rush to get this "Porkulus" bill passed so Nancy Nine Percent could go on her trip to Italy.

Notice his reference to the broken promise of the bill being up 48 hours before the vote.

"Porkulus" Bill Passes House Minus GOP Support....Democrats Delay Release Of Bill To Hide What's In It

The pork-laiden, so-called "stimulus" bill, which was only posted on the House Conference Committee this morning, passed the Democrat led House of Representatives just a few moments ago.

And the adoring Obama media is spinning (Associated with Obama Press on Yahoo News):
WASHINGTON – The House has passed a $787 billion plan to resuscitate the economy, handing President Barack Obama a big victory.

The measure was passed on a 246-183, with no Republican "yes" votes. It will now go to the Senate, where a vote is expected later Friday.

The eight-inch thick measure combines tax cuts for individuals and businesses with a half-trillion dollars in government spending for infrastructure, health care and help for cash-starved state governments. Seniors would get a $250 bonus Social Security check.

Seven Democrats voted against the bill.
A big round of applause to the House GOP for standing on principle and unanimously opposing this bill, which was crafted in secret as GOP Reps were locked out of negotiations. The same goes for the seven Democrats who voted country before party.

The Dems plan was, don't look at the bill, don't question it, just approve it. Now "Nine Percent" Nancy can fly off to Rome on our dime after mortgaging out our children's future to save the mice in her district.

As noted last night, the Democrats broke their promise of making the bill available on the internet 48 hours before the vote would take place. It was released to members of Congress at 11 p.m. last night. The conference report was finally posted on the House Rules Committee website at around 7:30 this morning. Now how do you read 1,073 pages in 10 hours before a 9 a.m. debate session begins?

Connie Hair writes in Human Events that the Democrats delayed release of the bill to put it in a format where it could not be found in an internet search.

Instead of publishing the bill as a regular internet document -- which people can search by “key words” and otherwise, the Dems took hours to convert the final bill from the regular searchable format into “pdf” files, which can be read but not searched.

Three of the four .pdf files had no text embedded, just images of the text, which did not permit text searches of the bill. That move to conceal the bill’s provisions had not been remedied this morning at the time of publication of this article. (You can find the entire bill on the House Appropriations [] website.)

So, what are they hiding? A lot.

...SEC. 1607. (a) CERTIFICATION BY GOVERNOR -- Not later than 45 days after the date of enactment of this Act, for funds provided to any State or agency thereof, the Governor of the State shall certify that: 1) the State request and use funds provided by this Act , and; 2) funds be used to create jobs and promote economic growth.

(b) ACCEPTANCE BY STATE LEGISLATURE -- If funds provided to any State in any division of this Act are not accepted for use by the Governor, then acceptance by the State legislature, by means of the adoption of a concurrent resolution, shall be sufficient to provide funding to such State.

This provision -- apparently aimed at conservative governors such as South Carolina’s Mark Sanford who does not want the federal money -- would overturn state laws and constitutions, intervening directly in the state’s government to give the legislature the power to overturn a government’s decision.

This provision probably violates the U.S. Constitution, a matter which will be of no concern to Congressional Democrats.This act -- to strong-arm state governments and a governor’s ability to control the state budget -- is Chicago-style bipartisanship.
Remember how Democrats complained about how Republicans ran Congress, for example, how Hillary Rotten Clinton claimed it was "run like a plantation."

That was nothing but the ravings of a party of sore losers. But when the Democrats got control of Congress, and now, the White House, forget about plantations! Congress and our government under the control of Democrats is being run like a soft tyranny.

White House Stifling Dissent Against Close of Gitmo--Brothers Of 9/11 Victim Not Invited To Meet With Obama, While Anti-Gitmo Aunt Invited

When Barack Hussein Sotero Obama was meeting with 9/11 & USS Cole families last week after the dropping of charges against the Cole bombing mastermind, I hoped they would give him an earful.

However, it appears that the Obama White House vetted family members of terrorism victims to stack the deck in favor of those who would support "That One's" retreat in fighting the War on Terror.

One example appears in the New York Post, as two brothers of 9/11 victim Adam Arias were not invited to last week's meeting with Mr. Obama, but their aunt, Valerie Lucznikowska, was.
Arias, 37, a vice president of operations at Euro Brokers who worked on the 84th floor of the World Trade Center South Tower, was the eighth victim identified following the terrorist attacks.

His brothers, Andy and Donald Arias, attended the hearings of five suspected plotters of the 9/11 attacks at Guantanamo Bay last month and support keeping the facility open and prosecuting the detainees immediately.

By comparison, Lucznikowska has complained about alleged torture of Gitmo detainees and favors closing Gitmo.

The Arias brothers both sent letters to Obama protesting her presence in the Oval Office because she does not speak for or represent the Arias family.

They complained that Lucznikowska is exploiting their brother's name to promote her own agenda.

Over at, Sergeant Tim (who is the family member of a 9/11 victim) writes:
Aunt Valerie was representing the ACLU's view. She, along with several others at the meeting, signed onto a 12/10/2008 letter that is only posted on the ACLU's site. She also hacks for More Peaceful Tomorrows, a group she has belonged to since before 9/11; members of it had praised the Taliban for their treatment of women in Afghanistan after trips there. After 9/11, they added 'September 11 Families for' in front of their group's name and were among the first to protest against our invasion of Afghanistan. Here's the real deal: the ACLU's proxies ran the guest list for the White House for last Friday's meeting, limited dissent, and plugged in ringers like Beverly. Obama is being led around by the detainees' lawyers on this and spinning just as fast as he can.

I do not tell you this to gossip; America needs to know they are being played for fools on this issue by both amateurs and olds pros now seated in the deck chairs at the Obama White House.

He stated further:
I am not offended that no one from my family was invited to that meeting. Yet I am outraged that pacifists, al Qaeda's lawyers and a few 9/11 family members who support the ACLU, a couple of 9/11 truthers, and self-appointed "family steering committee" members are in control of who has "policy" input.

What this amounts to is the Obama administration deliberately blocking the true extent of outrage felt (some of which had been expressed to pre-existing designated contacts) from the media and America in general, and using a cherry-picked few 9/11 family members as the point people for the effort.

One family member who did attend the meeting and opposes closing Gitmo is Debra Burlingame, whose brother, Charles F. “Chic” Burlingame III, was the pilot of American Airlines Flight 77 which crashed into the Pentagon. Appearing on the Steve Malzberg radio show, Burlingame noted what could be seen as the bias towards Obama, stating when Obama entered the Roosevelt Room, "everyone stood up and applauded him when he walked through, which I found unusual. It was a spontaneous thing. I don't know really know what it meant."

Burlingame is an attorney and has followed these terrorism cases, so, besides being a family member, she's well versed when it comes to legal aspects. So it comes as no surprise that when she asked "detailed, probing questions" to Obama, they were "met with stammers, stares, and statements that betrayed an understanding of the law that was, she said, "flat out wrong."' Even White House Counsel Greg Craig admitted to her that Obama was "getting the facts of the law wrong during the discussion with the families." In plain English, Obama the supposed legal scholar (as he was hyped by some during the election) doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to legal aspects of terrorism cases.

This is not a good sign for the country and the security of every American. Their handling of these cases is just like the Porkulus legislation, improvise and make up as they go along.

And the stifling of dissent among the families of terror victims? Can you imagine the media and liberal Democrat outrage if President Bush only heard one point of view on a subject?

But the adoring Obama media is silent when it comes to the outrage of 9/11 & Cole families towards his soft on terror policies. And our nation is not well served when the voices of many are silenced by a President who cannot handle criticism.

How Do You Know When Democrats Lie?

When they make promises.

The entire Democrat majority in the House voted with the Republican majority to make the "Porkulus" bill available to all Americans 48 hours before the final vote was to be held.

Gateway Pundit notes that, as of tonight, the bill has still not been posted!

And the vote is supposed to be held tomorrow.

Harry Reid, "Nine Percent" Nancy Pelosi and Barack Hussein Obama don't want us to see what's in it. They just want to frighten America into accepting this pork-laden bill without questions, like about the $30 million for the salt marsh harvest mice in San Francisco pork. What the hell does that have to do with stimulating the economy?

Nothing! It's all about stimulating the government, which will hurt the economy even more.

GOP Kept Out Of "Porkulus" Negotiations

After the Senate passed the "Porkulus" spending bill yesterday (with the help of Three RINO Stooges), "Nine Percent" Nancy Pelosi and Dingy Harry Reid's offices worked out a deal between both houses version of the bill.

...all while the Republican conferees were locked out of the meeting.

Connie Hair (whom I met last month while countering the Hamas crowd) writes about the GOP lockout in Human Events.
Republicans have caught the Democrats in a midnight “stimulus” power play that seeks to cut Republican conferees out of the House-Senate negotiations to resolve a final version of the Obama “stimulus” package. Staff members from the offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) met last night to put together the “stimulus” conference report.

They intend to attempt to shove this $1.3 trillion spending bill through in the dead of the night without Republican input so floor action can take place in both chambers on Thursday.

I spoke with House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (R-Ind.) moments ago about this latest version of Democratic “bipartisanship.” Pence told me, “I think the American people deserve to know that legislation that would comprise an amount equal to the entire discretionary budget of the United States of America is being crafted without a single House Republican in the room.”
It appears the Pelosi, Reid, Obama define "bipartisanship" is for the GOP to agree to their demands without question and without input.

And these are the same liberals who blasted the so-called "secrecy" of the Bush Administration? Bush nor the GOP would never have gotten away with a dirty trick like the one pulled by Obama, Reid & Pelosi.

Huffington's Toast blog, Failed Lib Talk Show Host In Attendance At Obama Press Conference

Notable at last night's White House "Press Conference" was that the extreme far-Left liberal media was given access to President Obama.

FOX News reports.
He seated a left-wing radio host in the coveted front row. He called on a liberal blogger from the Huffington Post. He even brought far-left columnist Helen Thomas out of the wilderness and let her ruminate about "so-called terrorists."

Clearly, President Obama was making a point of showing deference to the Left at his first prime-time press conference, which was broadcast to millions from the stately East Room of the White House on Monday.

Longtime members of the White House press corps who are accustomed to sitting in the front row of presidential press conferences were surprised to find their prime
real estate occupied by Ed Schultz
, a strident liberal who hosts a nationally syndicated radio program originally based in Fargo, N.D., but of late broadcasting from the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C.

During last year's presidential campaign, Schultz warmed up the audience for Obama at a Democratic fundraiser in Fargo by denouncing Republican opponent John McCain as a "warmonger." When Obama took the podium, he thanked Schulz and called him "the voice of progressive radio," although the campaign was later pressured into distancing itself from Schultz's inflammatory remarks.

...Obama also called on Sam Stein of the Huffington Post, a hard-left Web site that has never before been recognized by a president. Stein asked whether Obama would pursue "prosecution of Bush administration officials."

It's really interesting to see liberal journalists and politicians who raised a fuss about a conservative writer named Jeff Gannon in 2005 remain silent about far-Left blowards who aren't even journalists being allowed at a Presidential Press Conference.

Get Ready For $4 And Above At The Pump Again: Offshore Oil Leases Cancelled By Obama Administration

Forget about energy independence, as well as economic recovery under the Obama Administration.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar not only shelved energy leases in areas of Utah, but today ended a policy made by the Bush Administration last year to allow for offshore drilling off the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts.

Remember, the Bush Administration acted after the price of gasoline rose to over $4 per gallon, no doubt affecting an already suffering economy. The Democrats, in an election year ploy, allowed the ban on offshore drilling to expire, after Nine Percent Nancy Pelosi decided it was more important to go on her book tour while Americans had to cancel or cut back on family vacations last summer.

The Democrats and the Obama Administration obviously put the desires of extremist tree huggers like Carl "We're Better Off Without Cheap Gas" Pope and the Sierra Club, who welcomed the nomination of Salazar who is proving to be an enemy of American energy independence.

"The Sierra Club is very pleased with the nomination of Ken Salazar to head the Interior Department," said Carl Pope, Executive Director of the Sierra Club. "As a Westerner and a rancher, he understands the value of our public lands, parks, and wildlife and has been a vocal critic of the Bush Administration's reckless efforts to sell-off our public lands to Big Oil and other special interests. Senator Salazar has been a leader in protecting places like the Roan Plateau and he has stood up against the Bush's administration's dangerous rush to develop oil shale in Colorado and across the West."
So, when you're unemployed and have to pay $5 for gas this summer to look for two jobs, you can thank the Democrat Party as well as their tree-hugging puppet masters like Carl Pope who put their flat-earth policies against the economic well being of the American people, while forcing America to remain dependent on dictators and unstable parts of the world for energy.
Think about that next time you go to the polls.

"That One" Goes On TV To Promote Socialist Stimulous Package, FReepers & MAF Give RINO Arlen Sphincter Hell

Barack Hussein Obama spoke to his adoring PR firm, the liberal mainstream media, tonight in a televised news conference, where he repeated his Chicken Little "the sky is falling" routine to urge passage of the Socialist Government Stimulus bill, which won a cloture vote thanks to the three RINO stooges

The most telling line from "That One's" televised speech (I didn't watch it, I have better things to do and have a low BS tolerance anyway) was the following, as reported by FOX News.
"It is only government that can break the vicious cycle where lost jobs lead to people spending less money which leads to even more layoffs."
No, fool! It is the American people, who create jobs when they have more of their own money to spend. It's small businesses and corporations, who need their taxes cut so they can have more money to invest in their businesses and hire more workers.

Obama, as usual, went on his fearmongering campaign tonight, that " failure to act could 'turn a crisis into a catastrophe.'"

Great presidents use the bully pulpit to explain their initiatives and to rally Americans behind them. This guy Obama uses the bully pulpit to bully Americans with fear into accepting his "Porkulous" so-called stimulus for socialism.

Speaking of which, FReepers, as well as Move America Forward Chairperson Melanie Morgan gave Arlen Sphincter's office Holy Hell today.

Cat Moy writes at The Daily Blog about the fireworks in DC today.
Sen. Arlen Specter must feel like one lucky man today. He wasn’t in his Capitol Hill offices when MAF Chairman Melanie Morgan, Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee, Freepers and Free Republic founder Jim Robinson, and other patriotic citizens stormed his office to demand he reverse his position supporting the porkulus bill, aka the Barack-Blowing-Through- Dollars-Scheme.

...Melanie was at her finest, when we arrived at Specter’s office. For those of you who don’t know Specter, he’s a flip-flopping, spineless bureacrat who calls himself a Republican. He’s also one of the traitors who supports Obama’s spendulus bill. This is why he was a target for Monday’s action, spurred by Kirstinn Taylor of Free Republic.

Melanie and Jim Robinson asked to see the Senator. Specter’s front-office staff need to go back to kindergarten to get their manners tuned up. either that or they should go to work at Wal-Mart to pick up some tips from their greeters. A secretary, who wasn’t happy to see American patriots, refused to answer where the Senator was hiding. Jim, wearing his Navy cap, asked over and over about the Senator’s whereabouts, but the secretary wasn’t helping. It was distressing to see a Navy veteran being treated with such disrespect by a Senator’s staff.

Well, the cold-shoulder was too much for Melanie, who decided to take matters into her own hands. She stepped to the closed door leading to Specter’s office and the offices of his staffers, and flung it open. I didn’t take notes on what she said, but it went something like this:

“Come out! We want to talk to somebody right now!!”

The secretary didn’t like this. “You can’t go in there,” she warned Melanie, who promptly ignored her.

“Sombody come out here right now!!! We want to talk to you. Now!!!”

Specter’s chief of staff had finally had enough and came out to face the American citizens who wanted to redress their government official.

Melanie stepped toward him and unleashed a wave of complaints that hit him like a typhoon.

Again, I didn’t take notes, but it went something like this:

Tell Specter to stop acting like a liberal. We are watching him and we’re not going to let him get away with this!”

...Specter’s chief of staff kept notes, though I’m not sure he got everything down. He would have to know shorthand to get in everything. But Melanie reiiterated something he wouldn’t forget.

“Tell him WE ARE PISSED!” (Yes!!!!)

He took down the notes with a shaky hand and gave a smile that you might only see on a condemned man as he is walking to the gas chamber.
Go Mel! After reading that, I think the winning GOP ticket for 2012 should be Morgan / Palin with the campaign slogan "It Will Be the Women Who Will Save America!"
