Bad Weather Came To The Neighborhood

Just got our power back on after it went out about 10:25 p.m. last night, as a vicious thunderstorm blew through northern Virginia (Inside NOVA).

Gov. Bob McDonnell has declared a state of emergency for Virginia, saying Friday's storm created the largest non-hurricane power outage in state history. Nearly 1 million customers in Virginia are without power today following Friday's storms.

The violent thunderstorm -- called a derecho -- killed two people in the Springfield area, including a 90-year-old woman in her bed, Fairfax County police said. Statewide, the storm's death toll so far is six people, all killed by falling trees, according to McDonnell's office.

A 27-year-old Burke man died when a tree fell on his car while he was driving in the area of Old Keene Mill Road and Bauer Drive just before 11 p.m. Friday, police said in a news release.

Police said Khiet Nguyen was driving his 1998 Mercury west on Old Keene Mill Road when a tree fell on his car. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Around the same time, in the 8100 block of Carr Street, a tree fell on a house killing a 90-year-old woman as she was lying in bed, police said.

Another resident of the house called 911, but could not reach the woman.
Police are still working to reach the woman’s next of kin and have not yet released her name.

Detailed information about storm damages in the Prince William County area wasn't available Saturday morning, but county officials said the storm toppled many trees in the area, leaving people without power, cell service and cable.

Hundreds of thousands remain without power in Northern Virginia, with temperatures today expected to once again top 100 degrees.

I opened the front door of MIM Headquarters last night and thought I'd walked back in time to Hurricane Allen. The storm didn't last that long, but a bunch of leaves and small branches are down in our area.

So, I'm cooling down the HQ since the power is on, and will be at the pool for the rest of the day to fight the heat!

(VIDEO) Liberal Civility After SCOTUS Upholds Obamacare

As done earlier this year, I modified that video to remind readers how this President and his party dared to lecture us about "civility" after the horrible and tragic shooting in Tucson, AZ last year, compared to the vile tweets and football spiking from Obama, DNC employees, and Obamacare supporters.

Gloater-in-Chief Obama: Still A Big F--king A$$hole

This tweet came from the Twitter account of the President of the United States (Twitchy).

Now, if you don't know the letters, BFD stands for "Big F*king Deal" as uttered by Vice President Joe Bite-me at the signing ceremony for the ObamaTax. The term is now being used to hawk T-shirts to essentially rub the socialized medicine victory in the face of a growing majority of Americans who disapprove of it.

For someone who dared to lecture the nation about civility and talking to each other "in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds," this tweet and T-shirt is unPresidential and uncivil.

Once again, Richard Milhous Obama's football spiking showed thinking Americans he's still a Big F**king Asshole.

O'Reilly: Dems & Obama To Brian Terry's Family "Blank You, We're Not Going To Tell You" How Terry Was Killed

Bill O'Reilly called in from vacation to his Fox News evening show to talk with guest host Laura Ingraham about Obamacare and the House finding Eric Holder in contempt of Congress (starts at 6:00 in video link below).

"What this is all about is the Democratic Party walking out on the family of the Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry, who was killed. That's what this is all about. Nancy Pelosi and her acolytes...they walked out on this family. This family has a right to know how their son was killed, who ordered the program, when the attorney general and the president knew about the program and what the attorney general did after he knew. We have a right, but more importantly the Terry family has a right as Americans to know how their son was killed. And the Democratic Party and the president of the United States says to the Terry family blank you, we’re not going to tell you."

He concluded, “This decision by the Supreme Court heightens the power of the federal government — they take over the health care industry, period. The walkout of the Democrats and the executive privilege invoked by the president says to the Terry family and every other American we are not accountable to you … It’s outrageous but people have got to figure it out and they got to go to the polls in November and they have to decide what kind of country they want, period.”

To show how much disregard Pelosi had for Brian Terry and his family, she fumbled while searching for his name. While she turned her back on a law enforcement officer whose blood is on Eric Holder's hands, Pelosi that walking disgrace used the Obamacare ruling to remember that drunk-driving murderer named Ted Kennedy.


Eric Holder has become the first US Attorney General to be held in contempt of Congress this afternoon.

The vote putting Holder in contempt was bipartisan 255-67 in favor of contempt--17 Democrats voted in favor.

To her everlasting shame, the Wicked Witch of the West Coast, Nancy Pelosi, joined the racists known as the Congressional Black Caucus in walking out of the vote.

Excuse me, Madam Pelosi, that was not just a slap at the rule of law, but a slap in the face to the memory of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and his family, in addition to the 200 plus Mexican citizens murdered by guns provided to drug cartels by the Obama Regime's Fast & Furious program.

Pennsylvania Rep. Jason Chaffetz took to the floor to blast Pelosi for saying she'd walk out of the vote.

Rep. Allen West said the CBC judged Attorney General Holder "by the color of his skin."

Lady Justice wears a blindfold because she represents objectivity-- in that justice is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favor, regardless of identity, money, power, gender or race. Today the Congressional Black Caucus and other liberal Members of Congress judged the Attorney General by the color of his skin, and not by the content of his character. I am disappointed my colleagues would rather engage in a political stunt to distract the American people from knowing the truth behind the Attorney General’s disregard of the law and disrespect of congressional oversight to provide requested documents. I stood on the House floor and cast my vote for Justice--Justice for Brian Terry, Justice for the American people and Justice for our Constitutional Republic.

Mark Levin: Nothing Redeeming About SCOTUS Decision

Constitutional lawyer and radio host Mark Levin wrote the following on his Facebook page:

There's nothing about the Obamacare decision that is redeeming. Nothing. I will talk about it at length on my show tonight - 6 PM eastern. There are lawyers and political operatives spinning this decision, but don't buy any of it.

If you want a good understanding, listen to his show tonight.

FLASHBACK 2008: Obama Health Care Should Not Be Purchased By "Tax Increases" On Middle Class

Obama lied, taxes will rise!

Back in 2008, Richard Milhous Obama told a crowd that health care should "never be purchased with tax increases on middle class families." (h/t Jedediah Bila via Twitter).

That was a lie. Obamacare will be the biggest tax increase on the middle-class.

Not only that, but Obama, and the Democrat Party led by then chair Tim Kaine were fine with the idea of taking $500 billion out of Medicare as a down payment on Obamacare. Which is why Tim Kaine should not be rewarded with Virginia's Senate seat.

Sarah Palin: We Will Not Retreat On This (Obamacare)

Sarah Palin wrote the following on her Facebook page (emphasis mine):

Thank you, SCOTUS. This Obamacare ruling fires up the troops as America’s eyes are opened! Thank God.

This proves to be such an unsettling time in America as we undergo the fundamental transformation that Barack Obama promised he would do to us if elected. Obamacare was dealt in deception and confusion by flooding the public with an overwhelming amount of conflicting “rationale” via thousands of pages of unread legislative detail, which is the radical left’s M.O. Obama promised the American people this wasn’t a tax and that he’d never raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000. We now see that this is the largest tax increase in history. It will slam every business owner and every one of the 50% of Americans who currently pay their taxes. The other 50% are being deceived if they think they’re going to get a free ride – because Medicaid is broke. Recipients of Obama’s “free health care” will have fewer choices and less accessibility. Trust me – this much more expensive health care WILL be rationed; to claim otherwise defies all economic and common sense.

We will not retreat on this. A newly elected legislative branch is key to defending our Republic and fundamentally restoring all that is good in America.

SCOTUS now rules this is a tax? Well, Congress has the ability to create taxes – and also has the ability to rescind them. Upon their return from the July recess, Congress should act immediately to repeal this terrible new tax on the American people, and indeed they must repeal all of Obamacare. This is the most brazen and sweeping new tax and government overreach imposed on us. We the People did not ask for this tax, we do not want this tax, and we can’t afford this tax. This is not an answer to America’s health care challenges.

It’s time, again, for patriotic Americans to rise up to protest this obvious infringement on our economic and personal freedom. November is just around the corner. Today, the Supreme Court issued their ruling on Obamacare. In November, We the People will issue ours.

Liberal Racism & Sexism On Display - Clarence Thomas A "House Nigga" "Uncle Tom," Sarah Palin Attacked With Death Threats

The Democrap Party, with people like Patrick Gaspard, calling people "bitches" and "motherf**kers" have set the vile tone for the liberal football spiking today (The Blaze).

Liberals on twitter have been attacking conservative women and minorities with some of the most vile racist and sexist comments that would create an avalanche of outrage had it been done by conservatives.

I noticed these comments directed towards Tea Party activist Amy Kremer.

Via Twichy, Sarah Palin received sexist attacks on her, daughter Bristol, and her son Trig was mocked as a "retard."

She also received death threats.

Twichy also has some of the tweets directed at Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, being called an "Uncle Tom," "slave," "field nigga" and "house nigga."

Not once when he spoke today, did the Socialist Richard Milhous Obama lecture his party or supporters about the lack of civility they've shown today, in contrast to how he spoke at the Together We Thrive event in Tucson, AZ in January 2011.

#NEWTONE - The Democrat's (Civil) Response On Obamacare Being Upheld "It's Constitutional Bitches"

From Patrick Gaspard of the Democrat Party on Twitter

More of that Democrat Civility we were lecture about after Tucson last year.

Supreme Court Sides With Statism, Upholds Obamacare As Tax, But Not Under Commerce Clause

It's a sad day in America.

SCOTUS Blog says the mandate survives as a tax, but it is complicated. Medicaid provision "is limited but not invalidated."

So, what we're being told is that the individual mandate is unconstitutional under the commerce clause, but is being allowed an is constitutional as a tax. SCOTUSBlog says Chief Justice Roberts saved Obamacare.

Remember that Obama's own budget director said Obamacare was not a tax, but the Solicitor General claimed it as a tax in court for constitutional purposes.

Patterico has video of Obama saying the individual mandate is NOT a tax.

So, while he goes out and falsely claims he's cut taxes for 95 percent of Americans, Obama has just enacted the biggest tax in American history and lied to the American public about it.

The Dow Jones is plummeting after the Obamacare ruling.

Obamacare Opponents Outnumber Supporters Outside Supreme Court

We're down to the wire on the time when the Supreme Court will rule on the constitutionality of Obamacare. From my Twitter feed, I'm reading that opponents of this socialized medicine law that was forced down the throats of America outnumber supporters.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott sends this photo as he's headed into the Court.

My friend Tabitha Hale also sends this photo, where Obamacare opponents are chanting "Strike it down."

Here's another one, from Fox News' livesteam

All That Bragging About A 1 Billion Campaign, Now Obama Whines He's Being "Outspent"

It was two years ago the the lapdog media was boasting that Richard Milhous Obama's 2012 campaign would raise one billion dollars for his 2012 re-election bid.


President Barack Obama is no longer the outsider candidate who fueled his bid for the White House in 2008 with a flood of small donations from new and young voters inspired by his message of hope and change.

As a sitting president he has far greater authority and media access and his 2012 re-election campaign is expected to raise $1 billion, which is unprecedented in U.S. politics.

So much for that...his campaign can barely raise a dime, and he's going to your e-mail box and mine to bitch about it.

Friend --

I will be the first president in modern history to be outspent in his re-election campaign, if things continue as they have so far.

I'm not just talking about the super PACs and anonymous outside groups -- I'm talking about the Romney campaign itself. Those outside groups just add even more to the underlying problem.

The Romney campaign raises more than we do, and the math isn't hard to understand: Through the primaries, we raised almost three-quarters of our money from donors giving less than $1,000, while Mitt Romney's campaign raised more than three-quarters of its money from individuals giving $1,000 or more.

And, again, that's not including the massive outside spending by super PACs and front groups funneling up to an additional billion dollars into ads trashing me, you, and everything we believe in.

We can be outspent and still win -- but we can't be outspent 10 to 1 and still win.

More than 2.2 million Americans have already chipped in for us, and I'm so grateful for it. As we face this week's fundraising deadline, can you make a donation of $3 or more today?

Every donation you make today automatically enters you to join Michelle and me for one of the last grassroots dinners of this campaign -- today is your last chance to get your name in.

These dinners represent how we do things differently. My opponent spent this past weekend at a secretive retreat for the biggest donors to both his campaign and the super PACs that support him.

I've got other responsibilities I'm attending to.

Yeah like what? Your next golf game? The next fundraisers in Hollyweird? Michelle's next lavish vacation?

Of course, if you win his Dinner with the Dodo contest, you won't be allowed access to the minibar.

Blogger Aaron Walker Wins A Victory For Free Speech, Then Gets SWAT-ted On The Same Day

This caught my eye after I returned and unpacked from my trip, and had to comment on it because of this threat to the free speech rights of bloggers, and the harassment some are getting for daring to comment on a certain convicted criminal.

Monday, Aaron Walker, who blogged under the name of Aaron Worthing at Patterico, and also blogs at Allergic to Bull, was granted an emergency motion granting his freedom of speech back that a retired judge took away from him on May 29 (The Other McCain).

Judge Nelson W. Rupp Jr. presided over today’s hearing, with attorney Reginald W. Bours III representing Walker, who did not attend the hearing at Judicial Center in Rockville. In a brief telephone interview, Walker said that Kimberlin filed a counter-motion that did not address the First Amendment legal issues at stake, but rather “made a bunch of new accusations” against Walker.

It is important to note that Judge Rupp’s ruling only temporarily permits Walker to speak and write about Kimberlin, pending a July 5 hearing in Maryland state appeals court. Walker is appealing a May 29 ruling by Montgomery County District Court Judge C.J. Vaughey that granted a peace order sought by Kimberlin against Walker.

Walker said he plans to file a report on today’s hearing at his blog, Allergic to Bull. A Virginia attorney, Walker has become the center of national attention since May 17, when he published a 28,000-word blog post entitled, “How Brett Kimberlin Tried to Frame Me for a Crime (And How You Can Help!).” Walker’s post highlighted Kimberlin’s long-running efforts harass and intimidate bloggers who had written about Kimberlin’s criminal history.

Kimberlin is director of a 501(c) non-profit, the Justice Through Music Project, which has collected more than $1.8 million in contributions since 2005. Kimberlin also co-founded another tax-exempt activist group, Velvet Revolution, that has made headlines (and raised money) by making accusations of wrongdoing against a variety of public figures, including GOP strategist Karl Rove, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and the late Andrew Breitbart.

In addition to his appeal in Maryland state courts, Walker has filed for an emergency preliminary injunction in federal court.

Then, on Monday evening, Walker and his family were the victims of a SWAT-ting attack (The Blaze).

“I hear a voice on the other side saying ‘open the door,’” Walker told The Blaze in an interview Tuesday morning.

“I stick my head out and there are two cops hugging the front wall of my house with M4s — they were pointed at the ground.”

Walker was clear to note that the police officers were measurably calmer than those involved in fellow Kimberlin-victim Pat Frey’s SWAT-ting incident. Frey claimed in his case, officers had their guns drawn and were yelling orders, believing he had just shot his wife (as that is what the hoax-phone call to law enforcement had led authorities to believe).

“Let me guess, someone just said I shot my wife?” Walker asked the officers matter-of-factly. Walker said that something in the tone of his voice must have given the officers a sense that he was indeed the victim of a hoax.

The police, of course, had to do their “due diligence” regardless. According to the blogger, they swept the house and questioned his wife who essentially asked them the same exact question Walker had at the front door. While she had a “gut feeling” a SWAT-ting or similar form of harassment would likely happen to them given their ongoing legal battle with Kimberlin, Walker said his wife was still a bit shaken after the incident.

Police, meanwhile, were also concerned with finding out who committed the hoax, according to Walker.

Walker believes the catalyst for the SWAT-ting stems from his recent victory in court against Kimberlin. Earlier in the month, Judge Cornelius Vaughey found Walker to be in violation of a peace order simply for Tweeting and blogging about Kimberlin. The judge asserted Walker was “inciting” violence against the Speedway Bomber, even though Walker maintains he took every precaution to not compromise Kimberlin’s safety. For example, Walker explained that whenever he has posted original court documents on his blog, he redacts Kimberlin’s address and contact details. He also said he will not feature a recent picture of the Speedway Bomber on his website as he “sees no purpose to it.”

On Monday, another judge reversed the decision and lifted the portion of the peace order which stated Walker was not permitted to even write about Kimberlin. Now, Walker is allowed to talk about Kimberlin to a general audience.

“If reporting that someone did something bad can allow a judge to ban speech,” Waker began, then that means “the death of journalism and the First Amendment.”

Luckily for Walker, the most recently appointed judge recognized that Kimberlin had been abusing the legal process, and Walker’s free speech was restored. While the perpetrator of the attorney’s SWAT-ting has yet to be determined, it seems plausible that Kimberlin would be disappointed over his legal setback and that he or his minions might be motivated to silence Walker further.

So, where and when is this all going to stop? What will it take to stop it, the accidental shooting by police of any conservative blogger these SWAT-ters decide to target? Where is the FBI and other authorities?

Patterico has more here, as does Stacy McCain.  Lee Stanahan and Brandon Darby discussed it on their BlogTalkRadio show yesterday morning.

Back From Sunny & Humid South Texas

Though there's been a couple of posts here in the last few days, and some Twittering, I've been away from MIM headquarters and took a journey to my old stomping grounds of the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

Stormy clouds at Valley International Airport, Harlingen, TX
I planned to go to visit family as well as a gathering of old friends from way back when...many of whom I hadn't seen since high school, as we gathered at the Paradise of the South known as South Padre Island, TX.

Driving across Queen Isabella Memorial Causeway to South Padre Island, spring break capital
I hadn't been to the island in 20 years since leaving the RGV, and it had grown up a lot in the time I'd been away...bigger condos, more nightclubs, a waterpark, and more hotel rooms with outrageous prices, especially this time of year.
Cruising South Padre Island Boulevard

I also had family health issues to attend to, that made it harder to leave. It's difficult to see parents get older and have health problems. It is then when you begin to realize how much you took for granted, and how much you might not have appreciated their guidence until you're old enough to really understand it.

So, now it's time to catch up and keep an eye out for what's coming down the road, beginning tommorrow with the Obamacare decision.

Over the clouds, after takeoff from Houston, TX
Stay tuned.

Muslim Brotherhood Candidate Wins Election As Egypt's President, Obama Congratulates

Egypt just elected their new President, who represents the Muslim Brotherhood (BBC).

The Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Mursi has been declared the winner of Egypt's presidential election run-off.

He won 51.73% of the vote, beating former PM Ahmed Shafiq, the Higher Presidential Election Commission said.

Speaking later in a TV address, Mr Mursi hailed a "historic day" for the nation, and said he would be a president for all Egyptians.

There have been scenes of jubilation in Cairo's Tahrir Square, where Mr Mursi's supporters gathered.

And if you still suffer from delusions that this is a democracy movement, think again (Al Arabiya News).

If Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Mursi became president, Egypt’s new capital will no more be Cairo, but the new capital will be Jerusalem, a prominent Egyptian cleric said at a presidential campaign rally, which was aired by an Egyptian private TV channel.

“Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem with God’s will. Our chants shall be: ‘millions of martyrs will march towards Jerusalem’,” prominent cleric Safwat Hagazy said, according to the video aired by Egypt’s religious Annas TV on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Richard Milhous Obama congratulated Mursi.

Gay Radicals "Flip Off" White House Portrait Of President Reagan While Guests Of Obama

So, where is the civility and tolerance you lecture the rest of us about, Mr. Obama? (Washington Times).

Matthew “Matty” Hart and Zoe Strauss, both from the Philadelphia area, posted photographs of themselves on Facebook giving the middle finger to Mr. Reagan’s official portrait hanging in the White House as they attended the party.

At the reception, Mr. Obama told the attendees that the day is approaching when gay citizens will enjoy full equality in America.

“We’ll get there because of every man and woman and activist and ally who is moving us forward by the force of their moral arguments, but more importantly, by the force of their example,” Mr. Obama said.

Mr. Hart didn’t return a call seeking comment, but he told Philadelphia magazine that he despises Mr. Reagan’s legacy.

“Yeah, f– Reagan,” Mr. Hart said. “Ronald Reagan has blood on his hands. The man was in the White House as AIDS exploded, and he was happy to see plenty of gay men and queer people die. He was a murderous fool, and I have no problem saying so. Don’t invite me back. I don’t care.”

Mr. Hart is national director of public engagement at Solutions for Progress, which receives public and private funds to help “individuals and families working to overcome poverty and to build long-term financial stability,” according to its web site. Ms. Strauss is a photographer.

Former Rep. John LeBoutillier, an author, wrote in 2003 that Mr. Reagan was a “tolerant and kind man” and denied accounts that Mr. Reagan was intolerant of gays.

“Ronald Reagan was never anti-gay,” Mr. LeBoutillier wrote in a column. “He and Nancy, as longtime Hollywood insiders, knew many gays and never did or said anything that could be construed as even mildly anti-gay. As governor of California, Ronald Reagan was ‘progressive’ toward the gay movement.”

Reagan also opposed Proposition Six in Cailifornia (aka The Briggs Amendment) in 1978 which would have prohibited state schools from hiring homosexual teachers.

This is the problem with the radical homosexual community...they're always the ones clamoring about bullying and intolerance, when they behave the same way. Just ask Dan Savage, the anti-bullying advocate who bullied Christian teenagers recently and called a gay group endorsing Mitt Romney "house faggots."

MSNBC Host Involved In Attempt To Silence Rush Limbaugh By Boycott

So a host with the far-Left network known as MSNBC (also known as the network the Obama White House loves) was involved in the boycott effort designed to drive Rush Limbaugh off the air. Robert Stacy McCain has the details.
Attempting to discover the identity of an infiltrator in their group, the #StopRush leader @Shoq (aka “Shoq Value,” who is believed to be an activist named Matt Edelstein) indicated that Ball had warned another member about the suspected “right wing disrupter.” The other member had “already inquired with Krystal last week, and Krystal said ‘we don’t like or trust this guy,’” Shoq wrote in an e-mail published Thursday by Brooks Bayne at The Trenches.

Bayne said the e-mail was obtained from a Google group, “Social Action Steering,” which was apparently deleted after The Trenches published the correspondence between the #StopRush leaders. The group was attempting to discover the true identity and political leanings of a Texas man, known as “Randy Hahn,” who had joined their anti-Limbaugh effort and caused dissension among the boycotters.

Ball, a Democrat who ran for Congress in Virginia two years ago, is a paid MSNBC contributor who was recently announced as one of four co-hosts of a new daily program, The Cycle, on the left-leaning cable news network. It is unclear whether MSNBC executives were aware of the extent of Ball’s involvement in #StopRush, which used the social network in a campaign to drive Limbaugh off the airwaves by threatening boycotts against advertisers on his conservative talk show, the nation’s most popular syndicated radio program.

Professor William Jacobson’s Legal Insurrection blog has described how the #StopRush effort was evidently coordinated with the tax-exempt non-profit Media Matters for America, apparently using so-called “sockpuppet” accounts in a fake-grassroots ”astroturf” campaign.

Also in the article, e-mails obtained by The Trenches website show the #StopRush group sought out the services of Neal Rauhauser, who has ties with Brett Kimberlin.

Aaron Walker Fights Unconstitutional Gag Order

This is great news (Investors Business Daily, via Dan Riehl).

Back on May 29th, Brett Kimberlin won a peace order hearing in Maryland District Court against Aaron Walker, claiming that Walker’s blogging and tweeting of Kimberlin’s violent past and his previous interactions with Kimberlin in court constituted harassment.

Judge C. J. Vaughey granted Kimberlin his peace order. Walker was also arrested after the hearing because Kimberlin had filed a criminal complaint the weekend before the hearing stating that Walker had violated a temporary peace order. As Capital Hill noted last Friday, the Maryland State Attorney dropped those charges, a victory for Walker.

Now Aaron Walker has retained the services of attorney Reginald Bours to fight the peace order. Uploaded here is a letter Bours has sent to Kimberlin. Bours does not mince words:

This is a complex case, and, as a lawyer, I try to see both sides of an issue. However, based on my review of the facts, I do not believe you have had a proper basis to file either of the peace orders you have presented to District Court Commissioners, usually late at night on weekends.

The attached motion addressed every citizen’s right to free speech. If you truly respect that right, you should withdraw this peace order.

The motion Bours refers to is an emergency motion he has filed for a partial stay or a modification of Kimberlin’s peace order that would in effect lift the peace order until the Appeals Court hears the case on July 5th.

The motion is worth reading for the case it lays out against Kimberlin’s so-called evidence. What’s most revealing is that Judge Vaughey not only ignored the Brandenburg standard for speech, he also appears to have ignored Maryland law.

On page 2 of the motion, Bours notes that the Maryland statute on peace orders states that it “does not apply to peaceable activity intended to express a political view or provide information to others.” It also notes that “in Galloway v. State, the Court of Appeals specifically stated that Maryland’s harassment statute ‘...expressly eliminate constitutionally protected speech from its ambit.’”

I repeat what I wrote in previous blog post: “Vaughey is technically a ‘retired’ judge. Perhaps he should enjoy retirement in the more traditional fashion of not going back to one’s old job.”

Robert Stacy McCain has more. The appeal and injuction on Walker's behalf is not just limited to the State of Maryland, it's a federal one as well.

ATF Plotted To Use "Fast & Furious" For Gun Control, Agent's Family Files Suit Against InJustice Dept.

This was done with a political motive, and it lead to the deaths of two American law enforcement agents, as well as many in Mexico, as revealed in December 2011 (CBS News, via FreeRepublic).

Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation "Fast and Furious" to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales.

In Fast and Furious, ATF secretly encouraged gun dealers to sell to suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels to go after the "big fish." But ATF whistleblowers told CBS News and Congress it was a dangerous practice called "gunwalking," and it put thousands of weapons on the street. Many were used in violent crimes in Mexico. Two were found at the murder scene of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

....Several gun dealers who cooperated with ATF told CBS News and Congressional investigators they only went through with suspicious sales because ATF asked them to.

Sometimes it was against the gun dealer's own best judgment.

Read the email

In April, 2010 a licensed gun dealer cooperating with ATF was increasingly concerned about selling so many guns. "We just want to make sure we are cooperating with ATF and that we are not viewed as selling to the bad guys," writes the gun dealer to ATF Phoenix officials, "(W)e were hoping to put together something like a letter of understanding to alleviate concerns of some type of recourse against us down the road for selling these items."

Read the email

ATF's group supervisor on Fast and Furious David Voth assures the gun dealer there's nothing to worry about. "We (ATF) are continually monitoring these suspects using a variety of investigative techniques which I cannot go into detail."

Two months later, the same gun dealer grew more agitated.

"I wanted to make sure that none of the firearms that were sold per our conversation with you and various ATF agents could or would ever end up south of the border or in the hands of the bad guys. I guess I am looking for a bit of reassurance that the guns are not getting south or in the wrong hands...I want to help ATF with its investigation but not at the risk of agents (sic) safety because I have some very close friends that are US Border Patrol agents in southern AZ as well as my concern for all the agents (sic) safety that protect our country."

"It's like ATF created or added to the problem so they could be the solution to it and pat themselves on the back," says one law enforcement source familiar with the facts. "It's a circular way of thinking."

The Justice Department and ATF declined to comment. ATF officials mentioned in this report did not respond to requests from CBS News to speak with them.

The family of ICE Agent Jamie Zapata is now suing Eric Holder's InJustice Dept.

CBS News has learned that the family of ICE Special Agent Jaime Zapata has filed a claim for wrongful death against the Justice Dept. and other federal agencies. Zapata was gunned down by suspected drug cartel members in Mexico in Feb. 2011 with weapons later linked to an ATF case in the Texas area. Joining the claim is Zapata's surviving partner in the attack: Victor Avila.

In an interview last November, Zapata's family told CBS News they feel that U.S. law enforcement could have stopped the sale of a gun used to kill their son. CBS News obtained law enforcement records that show the gun that killed Zapata came from the U.S., and the suspects who allegedly trafficked it had been under law enforcement's watch for months in Dallas but weren't arrested.

In February, CBS News learned a second weapon used in the Zapata attack was also linked to an ongoing case under the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

The Justice Department has said ATF "was not aware of" the suspect's purchase of the gun that killed Zapata when it happened, and that answering further questions would jeopardize the investigation.

The family of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry released a statement yesterday.

Terry family attorney Pat McGroder on Wednesday released the following statement from Terry’s parents Josephine Terry and Kent Terry Sr.: “Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to fully disclose the documents associated with Operation Fast and Furious and President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege serves to compound this tragedy. It denies the Terry family and the American people the truth.”

The Terrys said that their son “was killed by members of a Mexican drug cartel armed with weapons from this failed Justice Department gun trafficking investigation. For more than 18 months we have been asking our federal government for justice and accountability. The documents sought by the House Oversight Committee and associated with Operation Fast and Furious should be produced and turned over to the committee. Our son lost his life protecting this nation, and it is very disappointing that we are now faced with an administration that seems more concerned with protecting themselves rather than revealing the truth behind Operation Fast and Furious.”

They should be disappointed as well that Congressional Democrats and their media lapdogs only care about protecting the President and are the ones making this a partisan game.

Fast & Furious: Holder In Contempt Of Congress, Democrats Are Just Contemptible, Is Obama Hiding Something?

When Attorney General Eric Holder refused to give Congressman Darrell Issa the documents that were requested by his committee in the Operation Fast & Furious investigation, we knew the contempt of Congress citation by the Oversight Committee would be held today.

What came out of the blue this morning was how Richard Milhous Obama approved Holder's request for executive privilege in protecting these documents.

The question is: what is in those documents that Holder does not want the Congress and America to see? Is he not just trying to protect himself, but the Obama Regime (including the President) as well?

What did Obama know, and when did he know it?

What is contemptible is not just Holder's behavior, but the behavior of this White House, Democrats in Congress and their media lapdogs who are aiding in the cover up.

Back in 2007, then Senator Obama had a different view of Executive Privilege. He ripped the Bush Administration for using it.

Obama even said he would respect the law and the branches of government. We see how that has turned out.

I could go down the list of name of Democrats who are only interested in marching in goosestep to protect their party leader and his appointee. Let's name names, shall we? Jackie Speier of California, Sheila Jackson Lee, "Jihad" Gerry Connolly from Northern Virginia and many others...all whining about how this is a partisan witch hunt.

Even the most contemptible Demoncat, Nancy Bella Pelosi (Daily Caller).

“I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day,” Pelosi said on Wednesday, The Huffington Post reports. “I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol. If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.”

“Oh, any number” of charges could have been brought against Rove, Pelosi said. “But there were some specific ones for his being in contempt of Congress.”

Pelosi also criticized Republicans pushing for justice for Border Patrol agent Brian Terry — as House oversight committee ranking Democratic member Rep. Elijah Cummings has on numerous occasions — as “just strictly political.”

“It’s just the irresponsibility of the Republicans,” Pelosi said. “We want jobs. Why are they spending this time doing this?”

First of all, Misss Pelosi, Karl Rove (as much as I don't like the guy) didn't do anything that involved the murder of citizens of another nation, as well as the death of a law enforcement officer. Hell, I'll go further and say no one was killed when Nixon covered up for Watergate, or Slick Willie Clinton lied that led him to be impeached. And don't give me the "we need to focus on jobs" crap. You had three years to work on jobs you botoxed witch and all you did was spend our money and shove a government health-care system down our throats.

I'd love for you, Miss Pelosi, Jihad Gerry and the rest of this Party of Corruption to tell the family of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry this investigation is just a political witch hunt. You don't have the guts to.

And I find it even more contemptable that Dictator Obama will cover-up for the wrong-doing of this, the most political attorney general and InJustice Department, but will demand Karl Rove's PAC turn over their list of donors. Why? So the Regime can add them to their enemies list and send their goon squads after them, like they did Romney donors? The coordinated efforts of groups linked to this White House and attacks on political speech needs to be investigated, but that's another story.

Finally, there's the corrupt media. NBC is the worst. A reporter telling a Congressman they can't have those documents, and the typical race-baiting by Mr. Thrill Up His Leg, Chris Matthews.

Which poses the question, are the Democrats, the Obama Regime and their lapdog media willing to put party and re-election over justice for the murder of a law enforcement agent? If they are, then there needs to be a house cleaning.


Sarah Rumpf at Sunshine State Sarah: A quick note on "executive privilege" [UDPATED]

Mark Levin: Executive Privilege and How the House Should Move Forward Legally

Phony Indian (& Democrat Senate Candidate) Elizabeth Warren Attacks Blogger

What does a liberal do they they have been exposed as a fraud? Right, they attack the messenger.

That's what's going on in Massachusetts, with Elizabeth Warren, the Democrat candidate who is running against Scott Brown. Remember her? She claimed she wanted to go after the "hick vote" in Massachusetts. Recently, it was revealed she claimed part Cherokee indian hertiage, and had used that to be considered a "minority law professor" at Harvard.

But it was false, and now she's attacking (by not mentioning by name) Prof. William Jacobson, founder of the Legal Insurrection blog.

As you know, Elizabeth Warren has been caught in a series of at best misleading and at worst false responses since The Boston Herald first broke the story in late April that Harvard Law promoted her as Native American in the mid-to-late 1990s.

First she played dumb and said she didn’t know why. But over the course of several weeks digging by bloggers and newspapers punctured Warren’s story, and revealed or forced Warren to admit she listed herself as Native American to get on a list of “Minority Law Teachers” in the mid-1980s to mid-1990s, that she informed both Penn Law and Harvard Law that she was Native American for federal reporting purposes, and that she was on a list at Harvard during her “visiting year” of “Women of Color in Legal Academia.”

Genealogical tracing of Warren’s alleged Cherokee ancestry by a group of Cherokees led by Twila Barnes has shown that Warren has no Cherokee heritage. The documentation and research has been posted for all to see. Anger at Warren extends beyond Cherokees.

Yet Warren persists in the claim to this day, raising bizarre defenses such as her Aunt Bea told her her ancestors had high cheekbones “like all the Indians” and that her parents supposedly had to elope because her mother was 1/16 Native American.

....Rather than meet with the Cherokee women and prove her heritage or apologize, Warren’s response has been to create a shiny object for the press to focus on, a ”right wing extremist“:

Warren’s camp responded late today with this statement: “The people of Massachusetts are concerned about their jobs, the future for their kids, and the security of their retirement. Scott Brown would rather talk about anything else. The out-of-state group in question is being promoted and supported by a right wing extremist who is on the record supporting and contributing money to Scott Brown. It is past time we moved on to the important issues facing middle class families in Massachusetts – even if Scott Brown won’t.”

The Warren statement does not identify the “right wing extremist,” but her campaign has been feeding my name to dutiful scriveners at places such as CBS Boston, who use old information from the Brown-Coakley race:

Sorry Professor Warren, you created the problem and you own it. No one else.

You could have put this issue to rest early on, but you and you alone chose a campaign of deception and hiding, in the hope it would go away. Now you hope to distract from your own failings with yet another diversion.

Democrats in Massachusetts recently had the option of picking another person to run against Brown, but stuck by Warren. So, not only is it her problem, the Democrat Party of Massachusetts owns this as well for standing by her.

Contempt Of Congress Vote Against Eric Holder Set For Tomorrow

Darrell Issa gave corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder one last chance to produce documents requested in the Fast and Furious investigation, and he has not (Politico).

House Republicans are charging head first into their most direct conflict with President Barack Obama’s administration over the extent of executive branch power, as they prepare to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress on Wednesday.

Holder and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) failed to reach an agreement on what documents the administration would fork over to help Republicans investigate the Fast and Furious program, a joint Justice Department-Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives operation that put guns into the hands of Mexican cartels.

The two sides remained at loggerheads Tuesday evening, after a 20-minute huddle in Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s third-floor Capitol suite. Holder later called Issa’s position “political gamesmanship” and not a true attempt to resolve the dispute.

After the session, Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said no deal was in hand and Wednesday’s vote would move forward, barring a last-minute reversal.

Of course, for Politico and the Party of Corruption (Democrats), they think this is just a partisan game. Never mind that Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed by a gun linked to the failed Holder/Obama operation. A whistle blower has also expressed frustration with the lack of progress in the congressional investigation.

Of course, the same Democrats who will defend the corrupt racist Eric Holder were the same ones complaining that the Bush Administration used the Justice Department as a political tool. However, the Bush Justice Department did not let off black racists blocking a polling place.

In my mind, Holder should not only be held in contempt, but impeached and removed from office.

#JustABlogger Sooper Mexican Exposes "Real Reporter" Andrea Mitchell Doctoring Romney Footage

First it was exploding buses, now MSNBC attacks GOP nominee Mitt Romney by selectively editing footage to make him appear out of touch...and it's exposed once again by #Just A Blogger.

Hats off to Sooper Mexican! Here's his original post from yesterday. Tonight, he asks MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Retract Her Story, Apologize and Show Full Video.

Yesterday the liberal media went a little crazy in their attempt to try to make comments from Mitt Romney at a campaign stop about a WAWA hoagie purchase into this election’s “George Bush Grocery Scanner” moment. If you’ll remember, the media reported that George H. W. Bush was absolutely amazed by a grocery scanner, painting him as aloof and out of touch with the common man.

After the damage was done to his campaign, it came out that the media had lied – he was actually amazed that the scanner could still scan a ripped label, and was perfectly acquainted with the technology. Still, it was a teachable moment – teaching us how the media can push an agenda by distorting the truth.

Well, they tried to do it to Mitt, and they encountered this masked Mexican in their way. READ MORE HERE.

Here’s a great video by MRCTV with both videos - Andrea’s deceptive edit, and Mitt Romney’s full speech:

The story has gone all through the Conservative Blogosphere, and it shows what a difference #JustABlogger can make. Remember that when ABC put out a similarly deceptive edit of George Zimmerman to damage him? THAT producer was supposedly fired, though never identified. While that edit put a man’s life in danger, this edit tried to DECEIVE the American public and sway their political opinion. Both are insidious in their own way.

The media elites are once again bringing up their high point--Watergate, as the 40th anniversary just passed of the break-in that led to media expose (and resignation) of President Richard Nixon. Forty years later, the watchdogs have become lapdogs, as they shield a President who has abused his power in similar and worse ways than Nixon did.

And now it is the new media, who are the new watchdogs...keeping an eye not only on corruption in both parties, but in the media as well.

AWFUL! Kids Singing "God Bless The USA" Heckled By Adults "Burn In Hell"

More of that "civility" and "new tone" from liberals. Video sadly speaks for itself (via Weasel Zippers).

Of course, liberals hate this because it contains two things they don't like: God and patriotism.

Bill Maher: Liberal Racist; Alec Baldwin: Unhinged Liberal Mental Patient Hurling Anti-Gay Slurs

In the celebrity idiot corner today:

Bill Maher, the de-facto head of the Democrat Party, attacked the GOP as "the party of the apes" because they won't repudiate black Republican (and I'm hoping Mitt Romney's running mate) Allen West (Politico).

“[T]he idea that the blame for our government’s dysfunction is equally shared by the parties just is a giant, steaming mound of horsesh*t and anyone who has paid attention to politics over the last 20 years knows it. Or as I like to call it, ‘The Rise of the Party of the Apes,’” the host of HBO’s “Real Time” wrote on his blog.

Maher singled out two politicians as extremists: West and Richard Mourdock, the Republican nominee for Senate who defeated longtime Sen. Dick Lugar in a primary last month.

“[T]ake Allen West. Seriously, take him to the padded cell and give him 20 CCs of the high test,” Maher wrote, noting West’s remark that some 80 House Democrats are Communists. “And not one Republican said, ‘Allen, come on. You’re making us look dumb.’ Not one of the Republican candidates for president said anything. Because in today’s Republican Party, that’s not even edgy anymore. They probably saw him later on and were like, ‘Word, Allen. Word.’ Because that’s how they think black people talk.”

Well, Bill, Allen West is right when he talked about the so-called "progressive" caucus being a bunch of commies and I gave one example of how he is right. Since you're the big million dollar Obama donor and have become the de-facto head of the DNC, maybe you should run for office. Perhaps you can move to West Virginia and run for Senate against Joe Manchin, because a seat held by former KKK Kleagle and Exaulted Cyclops Robert "Sheets" Byrd needs another liberal bigot to fill it.

Then there's the looney Alec Baldwin, who must not be too excited to get a marriage license. He slugged a New York Daily News photographer on the way out (Newsday).

The "30 Rock" star wasn't too happy when he was greeted by two Daily News photographers Tuesday morning after he and his fiancee Hilaria Thomas, 28, walked out of the New York City Clerk's marriage license bureau on Worth Street in lower Manhattan.

Baldwin, 54, is accused of grabbing photographer Jefferson Siegel as Siegel was snapping pictures of the couple and of assaulting Marcus Santos, who tried to intervene.

"He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me -- one time, right in the chin," Santos told the Daily News.

A NYPD spokeswoman said Santos filed a police report, but no charges had yet been filed. The Manhattan district attorney's office declined to comment.

Baldwin's spokesman said the actor did not throw punches and was simply defending himself and a pedestrian who was between the couple and the photographers.

Oh of course, it wasn't Alec the pampered celebrity lib's fault. Just like it wasn't his fault he inconvenienced a plane full of American Airlines passengers, or verbally abused his daugher...not his fault. But it gets worse. Alec even used anti-gay slurs towards the Daily News editor. Breitbart's Big Hollywood noted how Baldwin called editor Colin Myler "that English Queen" and "Her Highness" on Twitter.

Of course, if a prominent Republican or conservative had done any of this, it would be endless news on the lapdog media outlets. But Maher and Baldwin can get away with this, because (as Woody Allen said) they're "a bigot, but for the Left."

SAM DONALDSON LIED: Press DID Interrupt Reagan

Former White House correspondent for ABC Sam Donaldson said this the other day about Daily Caller reporter Neil Munro interrupting Duh Won (Washington ComPost).

Donaldson said he was in an airport waiting lounge when he caught Munro’s confrontation with Obama on a TV there.

He didn’t approve.

“I never interrupted any president while he was making a formal presentation of any sort. You don’t do that, do you?” said Donaldson, who titled his 1987 memoir “Hold On, Mr. President!”

You might not have done it (at least we haven't found the video yet), but the press corps, at least five of them did interrupt President Ronald Reagan and here's the video found by Sean Hannity (h/t Gateway Pundit).

So Sam, why don't you tell the media to quit being bootlickers for Obama and do their jobs of being journalists?

1987 - Press Described As "Grown Men Who Shout" At Reagan

The Obama Lapdog Media is busy distracting from their false Messiah's unConstitutional and lawless executive order granting quasi amnesty to 800,000 illegal aliens by saying Daily Caller reporter Neil Munro "heckled" That One.

The lapdogs, and their enabler, former ABC reporter Sam Donaldson, conveienetly forgot this tidbit from 25 years ago (Newsbusters).

Comments on the underlined items:
• Not only did they "do it for a living," they did it almost constantly during Reagan's eight years, almost regardless of the circumstances. It appeared to be a strategy designed to make the president appaer aloof and stand-offish, when by 1987 (which is probably why Connell decided to cover it) it was clear that the press's image had been severely tarnished by its years-long virtually non-stop childishness.
• It got so bad that by Reagan's second term, the press was almost routinely interrupting equivalent presidential functions like the one Robert Bork was involved in as described above.
• I believe it's fair to say that Obama and his apparatchiks have limited direct presidential access to Dear Leader far more than Reagan and his handlers ever did. Shoot, at one point (and I believe it's still the case), Obama's people were deciding ahead of time who in the press would get the privilege of asking him questions.

Now, all of a sudden, Neil Munro is a "heckler" getting a beat-down from the White House Correspondents Association amid speculation that The Daily Caller might "lose its access to the President and to the White House." What a bunch of flaming, presidential boot-licking hypocrisy.

Not only that, but left unreported is how unfriendly the Regime is towards some members of the White House Press Corps, even some senior members, who dare to do some real journalism.

PROOF: Obama's Illegal Amnesty Edict Was Done Purely For Political Reasons

Last September, Richard Milhous Obama was asked about putting through the DREAM Act and he responded by saying...

I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. We are doing everything we can administratively. But the fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce. And I think there's been a great disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It's just not true.

But, as with the gay marriage issue, all that was once true changes when Obama is short campaign dollars and is down in the polls. The Rule of Law and Constitution means nothing when it comes to getting every vote he can.

This e-mail went out last night from Obama's campaign celebrating his unconstitutional and lawless violation of his Oath of Office.

So, all this was done for the sole purpose of harvesting for every vote he can, while telling unemployed American workers to go to Hell in the process.

Oh, and for all you Kool-Aid drinking Obamabots who want to call anyone who criticizes That One as a dictator and this executive order unconstitutional a "racist," well, let me educate you.

Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4 of the US Constitution clearly states:

The Congress shall have Power To .... establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization...

Not the President, the Congress.

Exploding Buses Mixed With Footage Of Romney Campaign Bus, Featured On MSNBC - Obama's Favorite Network

Put this under the "New Tone" or "Liberal Civility" file.

Martin Bashir, that host with the snotty, elitist voice on MSNBC (Moonbats Spouting Nothing But Crap), played the following introduction to his program (Washington Free Beacon, via Ace of Spades).

Footage of the Romney Campaign bus interspersed with exploding buses. Now isn't that kind of "civil discourse" liberals lecture us about?

Can you imagine if Rush Limbaugh had the sound of airplane or bus crashes on his radio show, or Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck had similar footage with Obama, David Crock and Media Matters' panties would be in a wad, and the #StopRush, #StopBeck, #StopHannity boycott calls would go out. But since it's a liberal, Media Mutters is strangely silent.

Oh, and MSNBC is Obama's favorite network. (We love MSNBC).

Dictator Obama Lashes Out At Daily Caller Reporter For Questioning Him

Showing again how just how much of an asshole the Resident of the White House really is (Weasel Zippers).

The reporter is Neil Munro of the Daily Caller. Tucker Carlson, the editor of the DC, defended Munro for his questioning.

"Yes, that was TheDC's Neil Munro who dared question the president in the Rose Garden," Carlson tweeted. "Everyone's defying precedent today, it seems."

"This is what reporters are supposed to do," he later told the Huffington Post. "They're supposed to get their questions answered."

Comment from the White House is pending, but Carlson has said that White House press secretary Jay Carney has emailed him asking to talk.

While announcing a new change in immigration policy, Munro yelled, "Why'd you favor foreigners over Americans?”

“Excuse me, sir, but it’s not time for questions," Obama said.

“Are you going to take questions?” Munro asked.

“Not while I’m speaking.” Obama said.

Munro is the same reporter who earned the ire of Attorney General Eric Holder last year for a series of articles about the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal.

"We are very proud of, @NeilMunroDC for doing his job," the DC tweeted.

They should be proud of Munro. This is journalism, as compared to the rest of the lapdogs who have the nerve to call themselves "journalists."

More at The Daily Caller:

Neil Munro, White House Correspondent: “I always go to the White House prepared with questions for our president. I timed the question believing the president was closing his remarks, because naturally I have no intention of interrupting the President of the United States. I know he rarely takes questions before walking away from the podium. When I asked the question as he finished his speech, he turned his back on the many reporters, and walked away while I and at least one other reporter asked questions.”

Tucker Carlson, Editor-in-Chief:I don’t remember Diane Sawyer scolding her colleague Sam Donaldson for heckling President Reagan. And she shouldn’t have. A reporter’s job is to ask questions and get answers. Our job is to find out what the federal government is up to. Politicians often don’t want to tell us. A good reporter gets the story. We’re proud of Neil Munro.”

Neil Patel, Publisher: “The President today announced a very controversial policy and does not want to answer tough questions about it. Neil Munro is a veteran Washington reporter who today tried his best to time his question to be first as the President was wrapping up his remarks. He in no way meant to heckle the President of the United States.”

Of course, if Munro hasn't gone yet, he probably won't receive an invitaton to the White House Chirstmas Party for the press. Unlike past administrations, The Regime has a habit of not inviting reporters they don't like, including some veteran press corps members, to this event.

Sen. Mitch McConnell Calls SWAT-ting "Criminal & Reprehensible" At AEI Speech On First Amendment

Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky spoke today to the American Enterprise Institute about threats to the First Amendment from liberal groups and President Obama.

During his speech, the topic of SWAT-ting as a tactic used against political opponents came up. Sen. McConnell called SWAT-ting "criminal and reprehensible," and said (via AEI Twitter) that the goal of swatting is to "scare people who’ve dare to speak, write or otherwise support a cause that the swatters don’t like."

McConnell also said that "harassment and intimidation of private citizens wanting to participate in the political process is deplorable."

There is a link to this video of the entire speech via CSPAN (not embeddable). The SWAT-ting mention cames at 21.01 in the speech.  But the whole speech is worth watching.

SWAT-ting has been used against conservative bloggers Patrick Frey (aka Patterico) and just last month against Erick Erickson. Another person named Mike Stack was SWAT-ted around the same time as Frey around the time of the Michael Weiner scandal. In the past couple of weeks, news outlets like ABC, CNN and Fox News, have discussed this tactic, and Sen. Saxby Chambliss, as well as 87 House members, wrote letters asking Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate these SWAT-ting attacks on bloggers.

What Constitution? Obama Bypasses Congress & Passes DREAM Act By Executive Order

Constitution? He don't need no stinking Constitution...Obama acts like a Third World dictator and will appease any group by executive order just for votes.

Today, he's easing rules for deportation of illegal aliens by essentially passing the DREAM Act by executive fiat (Associated with Obama Press, via Legal Insurrection).

The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a top priority of an influential Latino electorate that has been vocal in its opposition to administration deportation policies.

The policy change, described to The Associated Press by two senior administration officials, will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants who have lived in fear of deportation. It also bypasses Congress and partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act, a long-sought but never enacted plan to establish a path toward citizenship for young people who came to the United States illegally but who have attended college or served in the military.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was to announce the new policy Friday, one week before President Barack Obama plans to address the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials’ annual conference in Orlando, Fla. Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney is scheduled to speak to the group on Thursday.

So much for checks and balances as allowed by the Constitution.

Where is Congress? Where are our spineless leaders like that crybaby John Boehner to fight this?

Obama Energy Dept. Gives $2 Million To Solar Firm Linked To Communist, 9/11 Troofer Van Jones

This is an example of what Sarah Palin called "crony capitalism" (Daily Caller).

On Wednesday the Department of Energy began financing solar power installation research with a $2 million award to Solar Mosaic. The solar energy research company has former Obama “green jobs” czar Van Jones listed as an advisor. It also employed Rebuild the Dream, Jones’ firm, to do its public relations work.

The DOE’s grant money will be distributed to nine companies in four states. Solar Mosaic received the most money, four times the amount of most other grants.

Jones resigned his post in the Obama administration three years ago amid controversy stemming from his past remarks.

Before working in the Obama White House, Jones signed a petition alleging officials in the George W. Bush administration “may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war.”

Jones later made crude remarks about Republicans in a public speech and expressed support for Mumia-Abu Jamal, a death row inmate convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer.

Additionally, Jones (an admitted Communist) founded an organization called Color of Change (funded by George Soro$) that was behind the assault on conservative speech by attacking Glenn Beck and is going after the sponsors of a group called ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) with race-baiting ads that have chased away sponsors like Johnson & Johnson, McDonalds, Coca Cola, Wal Mart, and

50 Lib Celebrities Each Pay Equivalent Of One Full-Time Salary To Meet Obama, Who Calls Them The "Tiebreaker," The "Ultimiate Arbiter Of Which Direction This Country Goes"

Who was Obama addressing? Wealthy celebrity elites in the home of Sarah Jessica Parker, famous from that pathetic TV show "Sluts and The City." (Newsbusters)

"President Barack Obama soaked in the support — and the campaign cash — of Manhattan's elite entertainers Thursday as his re-election team sought to fill its fundraising coffers," Feller wrote. "Speaking in a dimly lighted, art-filled room, Obama told supporters they would play a critical role in an election that would determine a vision for the nation's future.’

"You're the tie-breaker," he said. "You're the ultimate arbiter of which direction this country goes."

Perhaps that's what a candidate always tells the big-buck donors, that they're the "ultimate arbiters" of the nation's direction. But that doesn't sound very populist. Feller noted it was a rare joint appearance by Barack and Michelle at the home of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. "The intimate dinner banked about $2 million, with 50 people paying $40,000 each." Broderick was performing and could not attend. (Someone saved Ferris.)

Sarah Jessica-Parker, Liberal Celebrity "One-Percenter"

Among the celebrities on hand to hear Obama's remarks were Oscar winner Meryl Streep, fashion designer Michael Kors and Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who moderated a private question-and-answer session between the president and the guests. Broderick, who was starring in a Broadway musical, was absent.

The president and Mrs. Obama also headlined a second glitzy fundraiser in Manhattan Thursday night that included a performance from singer Mariah Carey and remarks by singer Alicia Keys. The 250-person dinner yielded the Obama campaign at least $2.5 million.

Feller briefly relayed that this hob-nobbing with the "ultimate arbiter" celebrities might not look good to many voters:

The strategy holds the potential for peril. It allows opponents to paint Obama as hobnobbing for dollars with middle-class angst riding high. The Republican Party lampooned Obama as tone deaf when his campaign promoted the Parker/Wintour event on the same day news broke of climbing unemployment.

OK, I know all candidates hold big dollar fundraisers for the campaigns, but seriously. Obama and the Democrats sell themselves as the party of the middle-class, the common person. In reality, Obama has done more fundraisers in his time as President (153 since April 2011; 86 in 2012 compared to G.W. Bush's 31 in 2004), along with all the golf trips and ritzy vacations, while Americans have seen their net worth drop.

To get an idea of the disconnect between That One and working America, 50 people paid $40,000 to hear him at Horseface's apartment. $40,000 is in many places a pretty decent salary. That's the equivalent of 50 full-time salaries (minus benefits) being paid to this Socialist's re-elect campaign.

The Real Velvet Revolution.....

Michelle Malkin explains:

Brett Kimberlin stole the Velvet Revolution. We’re stealing it back.

Brett Kimberlin, and his associate Brad Friedman, do not own the name “Velvet Revolution”. They do not, and cannot, claim trademark or copyright protection in the term, because in the realm of politics, where Kimberlin and Friedman seek to meddle, the term “Velvet Revolution” is more generic than “Jell-O”.

Likewise, we do not own the name “Velvet Revolution”. No one owns the term. The Czechs and Slovaks who put their lives on the line in 1989 have a pretty strong moral claim, but they’re all in MittelEuropa. The Czechs and Slovaks have bigger problems than one terrorist moonbat making a mockery of a First Amendment that they don’t have anyway.

So we’re taking the name back, for them.

What are your demands?

Our needs are simple. We seek to drive Brett Kimberlin’s fake Velvet Revolution into third place, or lower, on a Google search for the term. We estimate that we can do this within six months. Eventually we’d like to knock Wikipedia out of the top spot, but all things in their time.

We seek to replace Brett Kimberlin’s fake Velvet Revolution with a fake Velvet Revolution of our own, a Velvet Revolution that tells the truth about Kimberlin and his henchmen, in order that past and potential donors to Kimberlin, such as George Soros, may be fully informed about who is cashing the checks.

Great. How do you propose to accomplish this?

Imagine Google, and its competitors Bing and Yahoo, in terms of politics.

Individual searches are like issues. The websites to which those searches lead are like constituencies. Large, highly trafficked websites, like Boing Boing, tend to be heard first where smaller, non-specialist websites are relegated to page 10, just as the bankers at J. P. Morgan get private White House audiences when ordinary citizens who want to meet the President have to pay $15.00 to enter a lottery and pray that Sarah Jessica Parker draws their names out of a hat.

But just as little people can gather to make their voices heard on important issues, a multitude of smaller websites can drown out the majors, through links. Eventually, whatever they’re linking to rises to the top of the search result…

…We’re in it because we are offended, because we are committed anti-Communists, committed Czechophiles, and because we hate what Brett Kimberlin and his ilk are doing to this country.

Our only reward is the satisfaction of a job well done, and eventually, an enraged frivolous lawsuit from Brett Kimberlin or VelvetRevolution.US, Inc.

We recognize that this site will live or die, will rise or fall, on its own merits and the quality of its writing. We’re confident in ourselves, and we’re confident in you, our readers. All four of you.

Do it for the Czechs.

Here is the website. Patterico notes that Aaron Walker is still silent. Still waiting word on an appeal for his wrongful arrest and unconstitutional suspension of his First Amendment right to free speech.

Robert Stacy McCain, who deserves a Pulitzer Prize and other honors for his investigative writing into this, has written many articles about Neal Rauhauser and his links to Kimberlin (Neal was mentioned here back in Oct. 2010).

Breitbart notes that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who hasn't been one of my favorites due to his "go along to get along" attitude, is giving a speech today at the American Enterprise Institute on the Obama Regime's assualt on the First Amendment. In the interview, he mentions #Kimberling and the SWAT-ting of bloggers reports as "disturbing and need to be fully investigated."
