(VIDEO) Obama on October 22, 2012, Sequestration "Will Not Happen"

What Richard Milhous Obama said during the October 22 Presidential Debate (Twitchy).
 

 
Bob, I just need to comment on this. First of all, the sequester is not something that I proposed. It’s something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen. The budget that we’re talking about is not reducing our military spending. It’s maintaining it.
 
From his press conference today.
In a rare public acknowledgement of sequestration–a plan that reportedly originated in the White House last year as an ultimatum to motivate Congress toward a deficit deal–Obama said the $1 trillion package of defense and domestic spending reductions “may not always be the smartest cuts.”
“We’re using an axe instead of a scalpel,” Obama said.
...And Obama doubled down again on his refusal to countenance any alternative to sequestration that didn’t raise more revenue.
“Any agreement to deal with these automatic spending cuts, those also have to be balanced,” he said. “Revenues have to be part of the equation in turning off the sequester.” 
 And of course, no one in the "media" will call Obama out on his lies.

Eunuch RINO Senate Leadership Caves, Give Obama, Dems Some Tax Increases, No Spending Cuts Offered (Or Maybe Not, Thanks To Obama's Obnoxious Presser)

Somewhere in Washington DC, RINO Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is looking for his balls.



Because just like his counterpart in the House (the drunken crybaby John Boehner), McConnell showed he's got no backbone when it comes to standing up to the class-warfare, liberal demogauges like Richard Milhous Obama, "Dingy" Harry Reid and Stingy Hoyer.

After saying they wouldn't, the GOP establishment is now willing to raise taxes on top-earning Americans (Robert Costa, NRO).

Senior Senate Republican aides tell NRO that the tax side of the fiscal-cliff deal has been finalized. Here’s a sketch of the framework:
— Current tax rates would be permanently extended for singles making $400,000 or below, and permanently extended for couples making $450,000 or below
— For singles, capital gains and dividends of $400,000 or below would be permanently taxed at 15 percent; capital gains and dividends above $400,000 would be permanently taxed at 20 percent
— For couples, capital gains and dividends of $450,000 or below would be permanently taxed at 15 percent; capital gains and dividends above $450,000 would be taxed at 20 percent
— The Alternative Minimum Tax would be permanently patched
— Estates over $5 million would be taxed at 40 percent, and that tax rate would be permanently extended.
However, all spending bills must originate in the House, and the House wouldn't even go along with Boehner's cave in of raising taxes on incomes of $1 million or more.

This "compromise" is all without any spending cuts, meaning Obama still will gut our defense spending (Human Events).
President Barack Obama told the press Monday afternoon that congressional leaders were approaching a deal to halt an automatic tax increase with the expiration of the Bush tax cuts on New Year’s Day.
But, he said, there was nothing yet in place to stop a slate of automatic, aggressive cuts to defense spending and other key programs–and wouldn’t be, unless Republicans agreed to yet more revenue increases.
In a rare public acknowledgement of sequestration–a plan that reportedly originated in the White House last year as an ultimatum to motivate Congress toward a deficit deal–Obama said the $1 trillion package of defense and domestic spending reductions “may not always be the smartest cuts.”
“We’re using an axe instead of a scalpel,” Obama said.
...And Obama doubled down again on his refusal to countenance any alternative to sequestration that didn’t raise more revenue.
“Any agreement to deal with these automatic spending cuts, those also have to be balanced,” he said. “Revenues have to be part of the equation in turning off the sequester.”  
 That means 800,000 furlough notices will be sent out by the Pentagon to civilian employees. Never mind that, as Twitchy noted, Obama said during the October 22 Presidential Debate that the sequester would not happen.

Bob, I just need to comment on this. First of all, the sequester is not something that I proposed. It’s something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen. The budget that we’re talking about is not reducing our military spending. It’s maintaining it.

Meanwhile, at a time when we should cut spending, Dear Leader Obama has, by executive fiat, given that village idiot Joe Bite Me and all of Congress a pay raise.  All at a time when Americans who still have a job are taking home less money.

So, thanks a lot RINOs, the Republican party has shown they stand for nothing, and have no core values that they will not compromise.

UPDATE: Or maybe no deal will happen, after Obama acted like a dick at his press conference today, with human props standing behind him (Legal Insurrection).
Obama just had what was possibly the most insulting press event I’ve ever seen from a President — I’ll post the video when available, it will infuriate you.
He spiked the football, overtly insulted Republicans and Congress, and laughed that he is on the verge of getting what he wants. Either he wants to nix any deal, or he’s actually just enjoying his victory but is emotionally incapable of being presidential about it.
Everything you ever wanted to know about our disfunctional government was on display.

"Dingy" Harry Reid & Stingy Hoyer - Assholes of the Week

The week is almost over and two liberal Democrat leaders have shown just what obnoxious asses they really are.

First one is "Dingy" Harry Reid, who accused the GOP of running the House of Representatives "like a dictatorship."

Reid said the House is "being operated with a dictatorship of the speaker" and suggested today that the Republicans should agree to accept the original Senate bill pass in July. Reid's comments, however, made it clear he did not expect that to happen.
"It looks like" the nation will go over the fiscal cliff in just five days, he declared.
"It's not too late for the speaker to take up the Senate-passed bill, but that time is even winding down," Reid said. "So I say to the speaker, take the escape hatch that we've left you. Put the economic fate of the nation ahead of your own fate as Speaker of the House."
Boehner's spokesman Michael Steel reacted to Reid's tirade in an email, writing, "Senator Reid should talk less and legislate more. The House has already passed legislation to avoid the entire fiscal cliff. Senate Democrats have not."
Boehner has said it is now up to the Senate to come up with a deal.
First, John Boehner's spokesmouth needs to get some fire in him and attack at Dingy Harry for the "dictatorship" uncivil comment. If Dingy Harry wants to look for a dictator, he needs to head to his nearest mirror or look at the guy in the White House for the two best examples. Seriously. Reid has not been willing to even let the Senate vote on Boehner's cave-in of a tax on millionaires, had that proposal passed.

So who wants the country to go over the fiscal cliff, and all of our taxes to go up?  This guy right here.

 
"Dingy Harry" owns the fiscal cliff (Urban Grounds).
Harry Reid’s Democrat-led Senate has refused to do their most basic (and most important) job, propose and pass a budget, in almost 4 years. They have not even attempted to do so. Nor have they cast even a single vote in favor of the budget submitted by their party’s President (how bad have Obama’s budgets been that not even a single Democrat has voted for any of them?)
We are going over the fiscal cliff in a few days. The Democrats and their compliant media minions will try to make you believe that this is somehow the GOP’s fault. But that simply is not true; you know it as well as I do, regardless of which side of the aisle you sit.
Had Harry Reid not broken the law (each year they did not propose and pass a budget), we would not be where we are today, peering over this so-called fiscal cliff.
 
 Next liberal jerk is the guy from Maryland, Steny Hoyer, I call him "Stingy" Hoyer. Here's another example of how liberals like to use uncivil rhetoric as a way of bullying and attacking anyone who blocks their socialism (Twitchy).
If there’s ever a time when using the shooting of children as a metaphor is a good idea, December 2012 certainly isn’t that time. That’s what House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer did today though, telling reporters on Capitol Hill that the GOP’s fiscal cliff negotiations were “somewhat like taking your child hostage and saying to somebody else, ‘I’m going to shoot my child if you don’t do what I want done.’”
Keep in mind, Stingy Hoyer called opponents of Obama in 2009 "unAmerican" but in 2011 wanted the rest of us to "tone down the rhetoric."
"I talked to Mark Kelly, [Giffords'] husband, who is an astronaut. [He is] very angry, very angry about the level of angry rhetoric that he believes incites people - not only that Loughner targeted [Giffords] in particular, but to target those in authority, whether they be judges, members of Congress, local officials," Hoyer said.
He added that many lawmakers and their staffers are concerned.
"My colleagues are very concerned about the environment in which they are now operating. It's been a much angrier, confrontational environment over the last two or three years than we have experienced in the past. I think there is worry about that," Hoyer said.
Speak for yourself, Jerkoff!

Enjoy your shared honor, Harry and Stingy. Assholes!

Dismissals Over BenghaziGate Never Happened...Instead Of Being Canned, They Were "Reassigned"

After an "independent" report was released last week, America was told that those reponsible to the failures leading up to Benghazi "resigned."

Fat chance (Breitbart News).
When the investigative report was released last week, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters "The secretary has accepted Eric Boswell’s decision to resign as assistant secretary for Diplomatic Security, effective immediately." She also announced that three other individuals including Charlene Lamb would be placed on administrative leave "pending further action."
This made it sound as if heads were rolling in the wake of the Benghazi report, but CBS noted at the time that the State Department announcement seemed to be slightly nuanced from the initial announcement:
The State Department did not characterize the terms of their departures as resignations. CBS News, ABC, NBC, the New York Times, AP and Reuters all previously reported that U.S. officials told the news organizations that three individuals resigned in the wake of the probe. The announcement from the State Department says that the individuals were instead placed on "administrative leave pending further action" and says that they were "relieved of their current duties." [Emphasis added]
Now it appears the "further action" is simply reassignment to another government job. All four disgraced employees are expected back shortly. A source with knowledge of the situation tells the NY Post the State Department "didn’t come clean about Benghazi and now they’re not coming clean about these staff changes."
 
So much for accountability. As Sen. John McLame (not one of my favs) and a couple others have said, there needs to be an independent commission to look into BenghaziGate. Not just what happened at the State Department, but what did the White House know and when did they know it? Who told Susan Rice to tell the big lie about a dumb YouTube video being the cause of four Americans being killed? And, why were our troops told to stand down and who gave the order?

Arrogant Lib David Gregory Mocks Armed Guards For Schools, But His Kids Go To Private School With Armed Guards

NRA's Wayne LaPierre was on Meet the Depressed with David Gregory yesterday. In typical Obama Lapdog Media style, Gregory acted like a jackass talking to the NRA executive over gun laws and the idea of having armed guards in schools.


But while David Gregory mocks the idea of regular Americans having their children protected by armed guards or school staff, he sends his kids to the same private school as Richard Milhous Obama.

And they have armed guards (Weekly Standard).
The Gregory children go to school with the children of President Barack Obama, according to the Washington Post. That school is the co-ed Quaker school Sidwell Friends.  
According to a scan of the school's online faculty-staff directory, Sidwell has a security department made up of at least 11 people. Many of those are police officers, who are presumably armed.  
Moreover, with the Obama kids in attendance, there is a secret service presence at the institution, as well.
It's safe to say the school where Gregory sends his kids is a high-security school. It's just odd he'd want it for his kids, but wouldn't be more open to it for others.
But David Gregory is an Obamabot with his nose so far up "That One's" backside is face would almost become toilet paper.

The elites are the ones who are repulsed by guns and don't want the rest of us "hicks" to protect ourselves. But they have their private schools with armed guards, and armed escorts wherever they go.  I'll bet they even have armed guards at 30 Rock in New York, or wherever "Meet the Depressed" is taped.

Gregory and all the other Hollyweird idiots and liberals are hypocrites. One set of rules for us, another for them.

MORE: Legal Insurrection: Did David Gregory just violate D.C. gun law by possessing a high-capacity gun clip?
Here is the segment of today’s Meet the Press show in which Gregory holds up what appears to be a high-capacity (i.e., more than 10 round) ammunition clip while interviewing Wayne LaPierre this morning: 
I sent Gregory a tweet, and I’ll try to reach out to NBC News, and I’ll update if I can get NBC’s position on whether Gregory just violated the law. Maybe it was just a dummy clip, not a real one:

House GOP Planning To Oust Boehner As Speaker?

I saw on Twitter last night that Laura Ingraham mentioned the possibility that the crying lush John Boehner may be ousted as Speaker of the House and replaced by Rep. Paul Ryan.



It's starting to look like it's more than rumblings, that there's a plan afoot by conservative House members to throw Boehner over the side (Breitbart.com).

The Republicans, both conservatives and more establishment members alike, are emboldened after the failure of Boehner’s fiscal cliff “Plan B” on Thursday evening. Dissatisfaction with Boehner is growing in the House Republican conference, but until now there hasn’t been a clear path forward.
Those members and staffers requested anonymity from Breitbart News at this time to prevent retaliation from Boehner similar to what happened to those four members who were purged from their powerful committee assignments a few weeks ago. Their expressed concern is that if Boehner knew who they were, his adverse reaction toward them would be much more brutal than losing committee assignments, such as a primary challenge in 2014 by a leadership-sponsored candidate.
The circulated plan is a comprehensive multi-step process.
According to the plan as drafted, the first step is to re-establish the election of the Speaker of the House by secret ballot, rather than by a public roll call vote. That’s because the members who would oppose Boehner, if there ended up not being enough votes to achieve their desired result or if Boehner scared via threat or coaxed via prize some of the opposition into voting for him, would be sitting ducks for retaliation in the near future.
As one hill staffer considering this path told Breitbart News, the members involved in an unsuccessful coup d’etat would be “toast.”
To establish a secret ballot election for Speaker of the House, one Republican member will need to step forward and introduce a resolution on the House floor on the morning of January 3, 2013, before any other business takes place. Those close to this plan are convinced that a member will step forward and introduce this resolution.
On January 3, the House of Representatives will convene for the first order of business for the 113th Congress. Normally, the first order of business is for the House to elect a Speaker.
But if a member introduces that resolution for a secret ballot, the whole House will vote on that first. That vote will need to have a public roll call, meaning the American people, the press, and Boehner will know who voted which way. Even so, those who are considering this path forward to unseat Boehner know that Boehner and other establishment Republicans can’t legitimately oppose the concept of a secret ballot election for a leader of a political body.
Why’s that? In a 2009 op-ed Boehner himself wrote for U.S. News and World Report, the then House Minority Leader bashed unions for their failure to employ secret ballot elections to protect those voting. Boehner’s op-ed was an attack on the Democrats’ Employee Free Choice Act, also known as “card check” – legislation that would have hurt the sacred concept of elections so badly that, in Boehner’s own words, “it would leave them [workers voting in union elections] open to coercion and intimidation.” 

There's a lot more at the Breitbart link, including several documents. Here's just the summary doc:

One Page Summary


Seriously, the phony "negotiation" on the so-called fiscal cliff, and Boehner's unwillingness to go on the offensive against Obama only prove further what an ineffective leader he is. What is needed now, not just in the Republican Party, but the nation as well, is some solid leadership.

Imprisoned Vet Jon Hammar To Be Released From Mexican Prison

Announced this morning (Fox News).

Jon Hammar, the U.S. Marine who has been in a Mexican prison since August on a dubious weapon charge is being released today, his father confirmed to FoxNews.com.
Jon Hammar Sr. said during a flight layover in Houston that he was on his way to get his son, after he and his wife Olivia received a call Thursday night from their attorney, Eddie Varon-Levy telling them their son was going to be released.
"I haven't seen it in writing yet but Eddie has confirmed it with the court that Jon is being released today," Hammar Sr. said. "The U.S. consulate said they would pick Jon up at the prison and accompany him to the border crossing."
Hammar's family and legal team were headed to the border town of Brownsville, Texas, where they hope to have a joyful reunion sometime today. Hammar, 27, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been stuck in a notorious, drug cartel-controlled prison just 15 miles south of the U.S. border since Aug. 13, after he crossed into Mexico and declared an antique shotgun to Mexican customs officials that was deemed illegal.
"The court ruled on the motion that excluded the evidence on the charge because of a violation of his constitutional rights under Mexican law which resulted in the charge being dropped," Hammar Sr. said.
The Marine's father said he is excited and scared, but won't rest until his son is on the U.S. side of the border. He said the two planned to bond on the the trip home to Palmetto Bay, Fla., which Hammar Sr. said would be made by car.
No word yet if he has been released, but KRGV Channel 5 in Weslaco, TX in the Rio Grande Valley has the following photo on their Facebook page of a couple of veterans waiting at the Brownsville/Matamoros Bridge to welcome Hammar back to the US.

Raw Footage Of Attack By MI Union Thugs On Steven Crowder Released

Fox News Contributor and conservative comedian/blogger Steven Crowder has released raw footage of last week's assault on him, as well as the moments leading up to it and the attack on the American's for Prosperity tent. (video below).


You will see that, a certain union member keeps following and taunting Crowder in the early parts of the video. This is the thug who physically assaults him later.

Union workers chant "F*ck the tent" "take the tent" and "Snyder (MI Governor) is a dick."

At about 4:06 in the video, the assaults and attacks on the tent are documented.

At 6:00 you see the union members clearly taking the tent down, followed by some Neanderthal screaming a bunch of f-bombs into the camera.

Keep in mind too, that Richard Milhous Obama visited Michigan the day before and stood on the side of union workers. Despite his pleas of "civility" after Tucson in 2011, Obama and his Regime have been silent about the violence by his union supporters.

Likewise, liberal bloggers, like Daily Kooks and the failed banjo picker Charles "Icarus" Johnson at Little Green Doucheballs, have engaged in "Tent Troofer" tactics, claiming the AFP members brought the tent down and blamed it on the unions.

This video clearly shows that those nutty Leftist conspiracy theories are not true.

US Marine Jailed In Mexico Since Aug., Obama Won't Help, Allen West Says Boycott Travel To Mexico

A US Marine who is an Iraq War Veteran, Jon Hammar, has been languishing in a jail cell in Matamoros, Mexico (across the US border from Brownsville, TX), in a prison controlled by the Zetas drug cartel.

The crime? Hammar was carrying an antique gun with him on a road trip to central America. He had declared possession of the gun to the US Border Patrol when he crossed the border at Brownsville.

Now, FOX News reports (via Nice Deb) that the Mexican Ambassador has dashed hopes of a pre-Christmas release in a letter sent to a Congresswoman looking into the case.

“As you know well, Mexico has had very stringent gun-control laws in place for many years, and have reinforced their application as a result of the flow of weapons illicitly purchased in the U.S. and then trafficked into Mexico and into the hands of transnational criminal organizations,” Sarukhan wrote.
Hammar has been stuck in a notorious, drug cartel-controlled prison just 15 miles south of the U.S. border since Aug. 13, after he crossed into Mexico and declared an antique shotgun to Mexican customs officials.
Sarukhan failed to mention that Tamaulipas, the state which the CEDES prison in Matamoros is located, is controlled by the Los Zetas Cartel, arguably the most vicious of the cartels.
Hammar’s father said the letter is fraught with statements at odds with what he knows and what his son has told him.
“There are huge inaccuracies about what is happening in their system,” Jon Hammar Sr., said.
Sarukhan said Hammar was arrested for possession of a weapon that, according to Mexican law, is restricted for the exclusive use of the Mexican Armed Forces.
But high-ranking Mexican military officials have told Hammar’s attorney, Eddie Varon-Levy, that the gun Hammar tried to declare shortly after crossing into Mexico on his way to Costa Rica is not the type of firearm the laws are meant to block. The gun Hammar claims he also declared to U.S. Customs and border protection is a .410 gauge antique Sears Roebuck shotgun.
But Mexico’s top diplomat to the U.S. said the letter of the law must be followed.
“Regardless of what he may have declared or stated to CBP agents and then to Mexican Customs authorities, the sole introduction or possession of this type of weapon (not withstanding its intended use or year of manufacture) in Mexican territory constitutes a federal crime in Mexico and is not subject to any prosecutorial discretion,” Sarukhan said.
To his eternal shame, Richard Milhous Obama and his State Department will not help Hammar out. But Obama had all the time in the world to place a phone call to a little Fluke who became the butt of a joke after she'd wanted taxpayers to fund her birth control. Not only that, but why is Mexico attacking a US citizens who took the time to declare he had an antique gun, but doesn't disarm drug cartels and kidnappers?  Of course, Obama and Eric Holder don't help matters on that either.

Allen West has made a statement that Mexico should be crossed off the list of places to travel because of this (The Shark Tank).
‘I agree Hammar’s treatment is an “absolute disgrace and it is unconscionable that Jay Carney knew nothing about this. There is no excuse for this and the picture of an American, a Marine, chained to a cot is despicable.
In some ways, Lance Corporal Hammar is another victim of the botched “Fast and Furious” program. Mexico has stringent gun control laws in part because of weapons illicitly purchased in the US and trafficked back into Mexico.
I pray that, just as with Benghazi, the new normal for Time magazine’s Man of the Year is not to abandon this Marine, as his Administration did two Navy SEALs. These actions only serve to erode the trust and confidence in the Commander-in-Chief from our men and women in uniform – and all Americans, for that matter.
Support the travel boycott to Mexico, and call the White House to let this Administration know we do not tolerate abandoning LC Hammar.”-Rep. Allen West

Meanwhile, Obama is about to head out on his $4 million dollar taxpayer paid Hawaiian vacation, while this Marine is chained to a jail cell in Mexico.

So Who Has Blood On Their Hands, Rep. Jim "100% Planned Parenthood Rating" Himes?

Tomorrow is one week ago that the horrific tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school happened, in which 20 young children and six adults had their lives taken from them by a deranged madman in a "no-gun zone."

A horrific event like this, you would think, should have brought an already fractured and divided nation together in shared grief and well wishes from our great nation. Unfortunately, the liberals and Democrats who "never let a crisis go to waste" rubbed their hands at the opportunity to attack those among us who believe in the Second Amendment, playing on the raw emotions of Americans to surrender more of their liberty.

Despite the well noted "civility" that Richard Milhous Obama lectured the nation about after another tragic shooting in Tucson, the Democrat/liberal anti-gun gestapo engaged in the most uncivil, hateful attacks on gun owners, the National Rifle Association, and their supporters, while King Obama held his arrogant nose even higher in the air.

One more example of this liberal civility is Congressman Jim Himes of Connecticut, who attacked the governor of my home state as part of the Democrat/liberal anti-gun jihad (Gateway Pundit).


“So the notion that more Americans quote unquote in the words of Governor Perry, ‘packing heat’ will make us safer is not founded in reality, in facts or in history,” Himes said bitterly during a press conference. “It is founded in the fantasy of testosterone laden individuals who have blood on their hands for articulating that idea.”

So Gov. Rick Perry is in some way responsible for the horror Adam Lanza created?  Using that logic, the knife maker or cashier who sold OJ Simpson knives is responsible for the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

The problem is liberals cannot admit their ideas like "gun free zones" don't work, so they insist on more of them. Never mind it is the law-abiding citizen who is disarmed in "gun free zones," as criminals don't follow their signs. Never mind if someone had a gun last Friday, they could have blown Lanza away before he'd done more damage. But that's just being "testosterone laden."  Which brings up another aspect, the "war on boys" and masculinity that has been waged by the feminazis for years.

But if Rep. Himes wants to play the "blood is on your hands" card, let's go down that road, especially when it comes to the hypocrisy of protecting the life of the innocent.
Planned Parenthood gives Himes a 100% pro choice rating. He voted against the Stupak-Pitts Amendment in the Affordable Health Care for America Act that was intended to prevent any federal funds from paying for any health care plan with abortion coverage.
Himes has also been endorsed by NARAL and received a 100 percent pro-choice rating, according to their website.

So Rep. Jim Himes thinks if you believe in the right to defend yourself, you have "blood on your hands" when a mass shooting happens. But he believes in the "right" to kill an unborn child.

Who has blood on their hands again, Rep. Himes?


Boehner's "Plan B" Tax Increase For Millionaires Fails!

This is what happens when you try to give Obama and liberals part of what they want, you create dissention, Boehner was too wimpish to realize that (CNN)

House Speaker John Boehner's proposal to avert the looming fiscal cliff's automatic tax increases has failed to get enough Republican support, throwing yet another monkey wrench into the contentious debate.
Boehner said earlier Thursday that he was confident that his so-called Plan B -- which would extend tax cuts that are set to expire at year's end for most people while allowing rates to increase to 1990s levels on income over $1 million -- would pass the House, and in the process put pressure on President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Senate. But that gambit seemed in doubt Thursday, as Republican leaders struggled to get all their members to sign on, knowing the chamber's Democrats oppose it.
GOP leaders could be seen working the House floor earlier Thursday, trying to convince their party colleagues. Sen. Rob Portman was one of them, telling reporters that he and other Republican senators had been asked to come over and make their pitch.
Around 8 p.m., House Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced that the measure would not go up for a vote as planned. His office later said legislative business was finished for the week and could return to work after Christmas if needed.
"The House did not take up the tax measure today because it did not have sufficient support from our members to pass," Boehner said in a statement. "Now it is up to the president to work with Senator (Harry) Reid on legislation to avert the fiscal cliff."
Democratic leaders already had signaled they oppose the so-called Plan B.
 
So what does that show? Obama and "Dingy" Harry Reid were full of it when they said they wanted to raise taxes on "the top one percent." They wanted taxes to go up on everyone.  The GOP is too scared of their own shadow to even put this message forward. It should be repeated from every hill, this is the Obama/Reid tax increase.

I like the idea William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection put forward, The Christmas Plan. He mentioned it again tonight.
I say call his bluff. If a deal which tackles deficits from both revenue and spending can be reached this month, great.
If not, pass a 90 day extension of current tax rates and whatever else is needed to postpone the “cliff,” and go home for Christmas to give time for a Grand Bargain which puts Democratic sacred cows on the table.
Let Harry Reid refuse to bring it to a vote, and Obama refuse to sign it. Their inaction will be the reason for taxes rising for everyone.
 I also like what I heard Mark Levin mention, something along the lines of keeping the tax rate the same for the top brackets, and then cutting the lower brackets from what they are now, so they are getting more of a real tax cut.

But looks like none of that's going to happen now, because Boehner the Wimp is going to cry into his spiked Egg Nog.

Bottom line, the House Leadership needs to be challenged.  Boenher and Eric Cantor need to go. We need to have conservative leadership that is principled, feistier than Nancy Bella-Pelosi, and also great at messaging to where they go over the Obama Lapdog Media and engage the nation.

We don't have that in our current RINO leadership.

Theives In Sacramento Steal Care Packages For Troops Deployed Overseas

I don't know what is worse than a bunch of grinches who stole some care packages that were going to be sent overseas to our troops (CBS - Sacramento).

About $5,000 worth of packages that were meant for the troops in Afghanistan were stolen from a Sacramento warehouse.

“There’s all sorts of stuff in here,” said Scott Raab, at the charity Move America Forward.

The big boxes were loaded and ready to go. Inside were some of the comforts of home like coffee, beef jerky, jelly beans, deodorant, sanitation wipes, and something for the season.

“We, of course, got this Christmas stocking,” said Raab.

There were also Christmas cards, along with personalized notes from Americans saying thank you for your service.

Sometime Monday morning there were some creatures stirring as the last of the Christmas care packages were being sent out.  
“We had loaded up all the care packages to be delivered for Christmas, and what happened is they actually broke the lock,” said Raab. 
And they broke the hearts of those at the Move America Forward.
“They just took off in a scramble,” said Raab.
The thieves snagged up about two dozen boxes.
“You know it’s really sad that someone would take this from the troops,” said Raab.
 Yeah, it is, and tells a lot about the people who did the stealing too.

Gun-Grabber Dianne Feinstein In 1995 "I Carried A Concealed Weapon"

The senior of California's two arrogant far-Left senators, Dianne Feinstein, was one of the leading buzzards who just couldn't wait after the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary shooting to exploit that tragedy to disarm law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

But Feinstein once believed in the right to carry a gun and talked about it back in 1995.  Audio of this was just played on Mark Levin's radio show.
 

"Less than twenty years ago I was the target of a terrorist group. It was the New World Liberation Front. They blew up power stations and put a bomb at my home when my husband was dying of cancer. And the bomb didn't detonate. [...] I was very lucky. But, I thought of what might have happened. Later the same group shot out all the windows of my home. [...] And, I know the sense of helplessness that people feel. I know the urge to arm yourself because that's what I did. I was trained in firearms. I'd walk to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon. I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out, I was going to take them with me."
 
But today, Dianne Feinstein doesn't want law abiding citizens to have that ability. Because, just like after 9/11, law abiding Americans must be punished, either by Obama's thuggish TSA, or by liberals who think you cannot be trusted to own and use a firearm to protect yourself.  And as has been said, when someone breaks into your home, you only have seconds to act, while it will take a few minutes for the police to arrive.

So, the good liberals and moderate Republicans pass laws like "gun free zones" (which Sandy Hill Elementary was one), in order to stop violence. But do they? (Gun Watch).

During the height of gun control fever during the first Bush Presidency, the Congress passed the Gun Free School Zones act of 1990. It was designed to make it impossible for ordinary people to carry guns most places, because it forbid the carrying of guns within a thousand feet of a school. If you overlap the 1000 foot gun free zones that surround schools in most cities and towns, no one can go about their daily business without intersecting one of these zones at some time.
The Gun Free School Zone act was quickly challenged in the courts, and found to be unconstitutional by the Supreme Court under the interstate commerce clause, in U.S. v. Lopez, 1995. The reasoning was simple: If merely possessing a gun within a thousand feet of a school was interstate commerce, and therefore subject to federal regulation, what could possibly be construed as not interstate commerce? Virtually everything would then be controlled by the federal government. As the Constitution means something, the interstate commerce clause must mean something. If all of life can be controlled by the federal government, the clause means nothing.
President Clinton blew a gasket when the Gun Free School Zone act was found unconstitutional. He fiercely lobbied congress to pass a replica act, slightly modified. He threatened to keep congress from adjourning to go home to run for office if they did not pass the replica act. They passed the new Gun Free School Zone act in 1996. Since then, federal prosecutors have been very careful not to prosecute many cases under the act, not wanting to present the Supreme Court with another test case.
The results of the Gun Free School Zone act’s passage have been devastating. The first mass school shooting occurred in 1997. As prominent researcher John Lott has noted, mass shooters are attracted to defenseless victim zones. While zones that ban armed citizens are a tiny percentage of the nation’s area, according to Lott, only one of the “successful” (four or more victims) mass shootings in the past thirty years occurred outside of a defenseless victim zone (gun free zone).
Why do mass shooters chose defenseless victim zones? Because they want the fame that goes with the media attention that a mass killer gets, and to get the attention, they have to kill a lot of people. If they are stopped by an armed citizen, they lose their chance to make the “record books”, and there is no point in mass killing.

So, we can thank moderate George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton for insisting that there be a new "gun free zone" law that helped act as a magnet for psychotic mass murderers.

Rock and roll wildman Ted Nugent also added the following, via Newsmax.
“Indisputable statistics show clearly that gun free zones around the globe are always where the most innocent human lives are slaughtered,” insists Nugent, who is on the board of the National Rifle Association.
...“Unarmed and helpless is unarmed and helpless,” Nugent insisted. “That so much of our society is entrenched in the irresponsible mindset that unarmed and helpless is an okay condition is inviting such multiple shooting tragedies.”
Nugent said that he dreams of a society where “political correctness and the sheep like behavior that goes with it are discarded” and he drew comparisons to the 9/11 attacks, which called attention to the need for greater air travel security.
“Surely there must be teachers somewhere, like professional pilots after 9-11, that would be willing to be armed, trained and prepared to protect innocent children in their care,” he said.
Nugent added that most mass shootings occur in jurisdictions with “extreme restrictions” on firearms.
“But most telling, again, is the fact that they have all occurred in gun free zones or where for many reasons, no one was armed or prepared to stop the evil doer,” Nugent said.
Nugent gave a great interview back in 2008 to Texas Monthly on gun control, and his reasoning is simple and clear for anyone with two brain cells to understand.
 
Ted's had some choice words for anti-gun liberals at his concerts as well (NSFW - language warning).
 
 
 
So what about it, Dianne? Why is it OK for you to have carried a concealed weapon but the rest of us rubes can't, if you have your way?

Phony Civil Rights Group Not Excited About Tim Scott's Appointment To US Senate

Yesterday, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley appointed Rep. Tim Scott,  a Tea Party favorite, to replace the retiring Jim DeMint.

Though Scott will now be the only black Senator in the Senate, that status doesn't excite the civil wrongs organization known as the NAACCP (National Association for the Advancement of (Certain) Colored People).

From the Daily Caller:
Hilary Shelton, senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the NAACP, told The Daily Caller Monday afternoon that the group welcomed diversity in the Senate, but expects the new senator to work against the NAACP’s agenda.

“It is important that we have more integration in the U.S. Senate,” said Shelton in a phone interview. “It’s good to see that diversity.”

“Mr. Scott certainly comes from a modest background, experience, and so forth, and should be sensitive to those issues,” he said, referring to Scott’s impoverished single-parent upbringing in Charleston, SC.

“Unfortunately, his voting record in the U.S. House of Representatives raises major concerns,” Shelton said.

Scott, Shelton said, would likely work against that agenda, favoring instead the “small government” posture of Ronald Reagan and that president’s Secretary of Education, William Bennett.

Smaller government also means less federal assistance for housing and signals an abandoning of civil rights regulations as enforced by the Justice Department, Shelton said, highlighting the Department’s crackdown on what he called “anti-immigration” laws across the country.

Scott “has demonstrated a record of opposition to civil rights protection and advancing those real issues of concern of the NAACP’s noted African-American community,” Shelton added.

...In 2010, Scott responded to allegations of racism in the tea party, telling CBN News, “There are good people and bad people in all organizations fundamentally however, when you look at the basis of the Tea Party it has nothing to do with race. It has to do with an economic recovery.”

“Certainly I feel like I’m the tip of the arrow at times because certainly the national media wants to talk about the fact that I’m a black Republican and some people think of that as zany that a black person would be a conservative but to me what is zany is any person black, white, red, brown or yellow not being a conservative,” Scott said then.
Isn't this the problem with the NAACCP's aversion to Scott? They've been so invested in pushing a far-Left agenda, and trying to make the Obama Regime a success that they've joined in on the slander of the Tea Party with false allegations of racism.  But you look at how Scott, Allen West, Gov. Haley (an Indian American), Ted Cruz (Hispanic) are Tea Party favorites, and that puts the kabash on the lie that the Tea Party is a bunch of racists in white hoods.

But judging from Tweets from liberals, you can see the real racism is from the Left. With the "token" and "Uncle Ruckus" slurs on Twitter, liberals who brag about their "tolerance" and "diversity" sound like a bunch of rednecks at a Klavern Kampfire.  Why? Because Scott left the liberal's victimization plantation and thinks for himself. Liberal groupthink does not allow for individual thought.

Thus the real danger to the NAACCP is that Scott could inspire some in the black community to look more closely at the Tea Party and conservatism, and decide they want to empower themselves. It's the same principle with how strong conservative women like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann are a threat to the feminazis.  Thinking for yourself is not allowed in the liberal community, and the last thing that supposed civil rights organizations and feminazi groups want are their constituencies empowered to make their own decisions, thus leaving the liberal victimization plantation.

Fiscal Cliff Deal? Boehner Shows Signs He's Throwing In The Towel

The crybaby is giving in to That One (Washington ComPost Wonkblog).
Boehner offered to let tax rates rise for income over $1 million. The White House wanted to let tax rates rise for income over $250,000. The compromise will likely be somewhere in between. More revenue will come from limiting deductions, likely using some variant of the White House’s oft-proposed, oft-rejected idea for limiting itemized deductions to 28 percent. The total revenue raised by the two policies will likely be a bit north of $1 trillion. Congress will get instructions to use this new baseline to embark on tax reform next year. Importantly, if tax reform never happens, the revenue will already be locked in.
On the spending side, the Democrats’ headline concession will be accepting chained-CPI, which is to say, accepting a cut to Social Security benefits. Beyond that, the negotiators will agree to targets for spending cuts. Expect the final number here, too, to be in the neighborhood of $1 trillion, but also expect it to lack many specifics. Whether the cuts come from Medicare or Medicaid, whether they include raising the Medicare age, and many of the other contentious issues in the talks will be left up to Congress.
The deal will lift the spending sequester, but it will be backed up by, yes, another sequester-like policy. I’m told that the details on this next sequester haven’t been worked out yet, but the governing theory is that it should be more reasonable than the current sequester. That is to say, if the two parties can’t agree on something better, then this should be a policy they’re willing to live with.
On stimulus, unemployment insurance will be extended, as will the refundable tax credits. Some amount of infrastructure spending is likely. Perversely, the payroll tax cut, one of the most stimulative policies in the fiscal cliff, will likely be allowed to lapse, which will deal a big blow to the economy.
As for the debt ceiling, that will likely be lifted for a year, at least. In contrast to a week or so ago, when the White House was very intent on finishing the debt ceiling fight now, they’re sounding considerably less committed to securing a long-term increase in these negotiations. The argument winning converts, I’m told, is that since the White House won’t negotiate on the debt ceiling now and won’t negotiate on it later, there’s little reason to make it the sine qua non of a deal.
So, just like in 2011, Boehner is screwing the country again because he doesn't have the pair to stand up for fiscal sanity, and the GOP establishment couldn't message their way out of a paper bag.

Boehner has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt he's useless as House Speaker. Bottom line, conservatives in the House need to mount a challenge to him and get rid of him. We need a fighter. Put someone in as speaker who is willing to be as hard nosed for fiscal sanity.

If not, then Boehner the crybaby needs to meet his equivalent of Gen. George S. Patton soon to put some fight in him.

Washington ComPost Editor Compares Obama's Speech To Gettysburg Address

While Richard Milhous Obama swooped down out of the sky like a buzzard to feed off the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary at the memorial prayer vigil last night in Newtown, CT, Washington ComPost Associate Editor David Maraniss was in near masturbatory ecstasy.

He sent out a Tweet that, in true Obamabot tradition, compared "That One's" speech to one of many historic speeches by real US Presidents. This time, Maraniss chose the Gettysburg Address.

Prof. William Jacobson posted the entire Gettysburg Address at Legal Insurrection for a comparison.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
Now, can someone tell me the difference between Lincoln's historic address and Obama's Newtown partisan speech?  Let me help you out.

1. The Gettysburg Address was not peppered with "I's" and "Me's" like Obama's speeches are.

2. Lincoln spoke of preserving liberty and a new burst of freedom, while Obama wants to take more of our liberty for a little temporary security.

Time to remember a quote from one of our Founding Fathers:
"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin
 
 Likewise, as Ronald Reagan also said:
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Buzzard-in-Chief Obama Uses Sandy Hill Memorial For Political Purposes, Adding "Dog Whistle" Language For Gun Control In Speech

Shame on you, Richard Milhous Obama!

This was supposed to be a prayer vigil, a memorial service for the twenty children and the adults who died to save their students.

Instead, as only Obama can do, he makes it about ME ME ME ME, while in the process, using "code language" or should I say "Dog Whistle" language to let people know he is going to swoop down like a buzzard and use this tragedy for the sake of taking away some of our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.


From the Washington ComPost:
We can’t tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change.

We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. No single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society, but that can’t be an excuse for inaction. Surely we can do better than this.

If there’s even one step we can take to save another child or another parent or another town from the grief that’s visited Tucson and Aurora and Oak Creek and Newtown and communities from Columbine to Blacksburg before that, then surely we have an obligation to try.

In the coming weeks, I’ll use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens, from law enforcement, to mental health professionals, to parents and educators, in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this, because what choice do we have? We can’t accept events like this as routine.

Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?

Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?

This should have been an event devoid of politics, but liberals who are intent on taking over more and more of our lives have no conscience to use these tragedies as excuses to attack law abiding citizens and claim something else...not the person who committed this act of evil....was responsible.

Already, leaders from the NRA are receiving death threats via Twitter. Why? For the crime in Obama's AmeriKa of speaking out in defense of the freedom to keep and bear arms, a freedom that the founders knew was important for a free society. Where is the civility from your liberal hoards, Mister Obama? Yet you say nothing to condemn that, while you hold your nose even more arrogantly in the air, so cocky after November 6th.

But the whole issue of guns is a red-herring, because liberals are so willing to, as Obama's former chief-of-staff said, "never let a crisis go to waste" in order to take guns away from law abiding citizens. There's a lot more that's involved.

John Fund at National Review Online writes:
Almost all of the public-policy discussion about Newtown has focused on a debate over the need for more gun control. In reality, gun control in a country that already has 200 million privately owned firearms is likely to do little to keep weapons out of the hands of criminals. We would be better off debating two taboo subjects — the laws that make it difficult to control people with mental illness and the growing body of evidence that “gun-free” zones, which ban the carrying of firearms by law-abiding individuals, don’t work.
First, the mental-health issue. A lengthy study by Mother Jones magazine found that at least 38 of the 61 mass shooters in the past three decades “displayed signs of mental health problems prior to the killings.” New York Times columnist David Brooks and Cornell Law School professor William Jacobson have both suggested that the ACLU-inspired laws that make it so difficult to intervene and identify potentially dangerous people should be loosened. “Will we address mental-health and educational-privacy laws, which instill fear of legal liability for reporting potentially violent mentally ill people to law enforcement?” asks Professor Jacobson. “I doubt it.”
Gun-free zones have been the most popular response to previous mass killings. But many law-enforcement officials say they are actually counterproductive. “Guns are already banned in schools. That is why the shootings happen in schools. A school is a ‘helpless-victim zone,’” says Richard Mack, a former Arizona sheriff. “Preventing any adult at a school from having access to a firearm eliminates any chance the killer can be stopped in time to prevent a rampage,” Jim Kouri, the public-information officer of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, told me earlier this year at the time of the Aurora, Colo., Batman-movie shooting. Indeed, there have been many instances — from the high-school shooting by Luke Woodham in Mississippi, to the New Life Church shooting in Colorado Springs, Colo. — where a killer has been stopped after someone got a gun from a parked car or elsewhere and confronted the shooter.
Economists John Lott and William Landes conducted a groundbreaking study in 1999, and found that a common theme of mass shootings is that they occur in places where guns are banned and killers know everyone will be unarmed, such as shopping malls and schools.
Did you see that line?  But don't tell that to all these anti-gun liberals, because facts are inconvenient things to them.

President Obama, you're despicable!

Sen. Dick "Turban" Durbin Equates Sandy Hook Shooting To 9/11 For Gun Control

The gun-grabbing crowd of liberal Democrats was out in force on the Sunday shows today, promising to go after assault weapons after the tragic shooting on Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Among them was the disgraceful Illinois Senator Dick "Turban" Durbin (video via Breitbart.com), using the 9/11 terrorist attacks to equate to stricter gun control laws.




"I think that what happened in Newtown, Conn., may at least lead some to finally decide to sit down and have this conversation,” Durbin said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I really think we may have a chance because of this terrible tragedy. That’s what happened after 9/11. It can happen after Newtown, Conn., as well.”

Well, I don't remember the politicians getting together to ban airplanes after 9/11. But they sure made a power grab to get control of the screening of air passengers. Look how well the TSA has worked out. Law abiding passengers are treated like criminals just for wanting to fly on airplanes for business or pleasure.

Let me remind you how Turban Durbin sided with the perpetrators of evil, Islamic Terrorists, and, in the process, attacked the men and women of our military who took abuse from those terrorist scum, comparing our military to Nazis and Pol Pot.



When some members of Congress wanted to look into Islamic extremism after the Ft. Hood shooting and other attempted bombings by Muslim extremists, Turban Durbin wasn't interested. Instead he wanted to act as an advocate for the Muslim community, making them out to be victims.

All Turban Durbin, like all the other liberal gun-grabbers, is doing, is trying to take responsibility away from the individual and on an objectm which is a way of avoiding a part of human nature liberals don't want to admit exists....evil.

Michael Moore & The Liberal Gun Grabbers Exploit Another Tragedy, But Ignore Human Nature

One day after the tragic killing of 20 young children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, we're learning more about the victims, the little angels who are no longer a part of their families lives, and the heroic adults, teachers like Vicki Soto, who died but protected their students.

Unfortunately, in what has become too often the case, certain celebrities, media types, activists and politicians have shown nothing but an utter lack of class. Like buzzards, they swoop down on a tragedy and feed on their victims because they have a certain agenda they want to push on the rest of the country. In cases like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary, Tucson AZ, or even more recently in Colorado, it involves law abiding Americans giving up more of their freedom...this being the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

I'm talking about Michael Moore, who, hours after the shootings, said the NRA "hates freedom" and "wants children dead." I'm also talking about CNN's Piers Morgan, that RINO from Canada David Frum. Then, there's Reps. Jerrold "Jabba the Hut" Nadler, Nita Lowey, Jim "Alexandria Town Drunk" Moron, "Jihad" Gerry Connolly, as well as Sens. Frank Lautenberg and Barbara Boxer, all these liberal Democrats who swooped down like buzzards to exploit this tragedy for their own selfish purposes.

In pondering this, yesterday and today, it occured to me that the trouble is, in their quest for "Utopia" or "Ameritopia" (as Mark Levin wrote), the gun-grabbers forgot to factor in one element....human nature.

There is good and evil in the world.  All the gun laws, all the human efforts made will not stop someone motivated by evil from committing an atrocious act on someone else or an entire group.  Think of this.  The largest mass murder at a school in the United States happened in 1927, and it was not executed with guns, but by bombs.

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were not committed with guns, but using box cutters to take over passenger jetliners and crash them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and an attempt on our nation's Capitol building.



The gun laws of Connecticut kept this lowlife, Adam Lanza, from buying his own weapon. He was underage, for one thing, and would have had to go through a "waiting period" to obtain his weapons. So, how did he get the guns to commit these killings? He killed his mother, a gun enthusiast and stole her weapons. Does it not matter that, at Sandy Hook, at the theatre in Colorado, at Virginia Tech, all were designated "gun-free zones" but it did not stop these criminals from killing with guns. Does it matter to these anti-gun liberal Democrats that it's easier to steal a gun than purchase one?

No, because those who obey the laws have to be punished, because liberals like Moore, Piers Morgan, Frum and these Democrats all want to feel better about themselves and exert more control over our lives.

I don't often agree with Mike Huckabee and I understand where he's coming from when he made the statement just after this tragedy. Of course, being an ordained minister, he's coming from a theological background. But does he have a point?  Liberals who claim to be so open-minded but react to Huckabee with such hostility only prove their minds are so open their brains fell out.  Maybe it should be something for us to ponder.

I'm just an ordinary citizen who blogs about the state of the nation as I see it, because I care about it's future. Not for me, but for the next generation. I've often believed that it's our job to make this place better, more prosperous, more free, than when it was handed to us.  Neither do I pretend to be "Holier than thou." I'm an imperfect (some might say backsliden) Christian.  But I shudder at the atrocities that have been committed in the name of a "religion" or as a result of someone's mental illness.  Add to that the lack of civility in our daily lives, as well as in our nation.  I'm not just talking about political discourse.

I can actually remember a time when it was safe for me to walk around the neighborhood on Halloween in the early 1970s, while my parents and neighbors sat in the front yard to hand out candy at our place. You can't do that with your children today.  Our entertainment today has become go graphically violent it's almost mind-numbing. Except for some modern country music, I only listen to classic rock. Rock & roll was killed in the 1990s by "grunge rock" which was all about suicidal depression, followed by (c)rap "music" which glorified the "gangsta" mentality, and the demeaning of women as "bitches" and "hos". Suburban kids have copped the "gangsta" look with the "baggy pants" below the underwear or butt-crack (a look that comes out of prisons). It's not enough to wear an earring. Facial piercings look like stapes, add to that the tattooed look, even among women.  People have, in especially the last 20 years, have become more uncivil and mean.  How much does our modern culture have to do with it?

Add to that the number of parents who, let's just say, don't give a damn. They don't teach their kids any values or are too busy wrapped up in themselves to be parents. The TV and computer are babysitters, and God only knows what they're looking at.  Parents are more likely to come to their little angel's rescue when they get in trouble at school. Getting in trouble at school for me wasn't an option. Not only would I have consequences at school, I knew I'd have them at home when I arrived.

What has happened in the last 40 years? Have we as a nation devalued life so much that we sometimes wish we could hide our children from the outside world?  Activists will fight for the lives of animals and even against the death penalty for the worst scum sociopathic killers, but many of them cannot be found when it comes to protecting the unborn. Barbara Boxer, for example, will use the horrible killing of children as an excuse for us to lose more of our freedom, but she'll demand women have the "right" to kill their unborn children by the method of infanticide known as "partial birth abortion."  What sense does that make?

You want to talk about violence, fine. But I don't need a lecture from Michael Moore, who stands by violent, racist union thugs in Michigan, but blames guns, the NRA and everything else but a sick individual for what happened at Sandy Hook.  I don't need a lecture about violence and guns from a Congressman who has a history of assaulting people, and who's trying to cover up his son battering his girlfriend's head into a garbage can as an "accident" and "embarrassing" incident.  Most of these same gun-control liberals have regularly attacked the brave members of our military, but give support by proxy to our enemies by blaming the nation they are sworn to serve.

As much as they might try, these social-utopians will never be able to create "Heaven on Earth." But since when have facts gotten in their way?

Fall & Concussion Will Keep Hillary From Testifying On BenghaziGate

Word came out today that Secretary of State Hillary Rotten Clinton had, in the last few days, fainted and suffered a concussion (Fox News Insider).
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is suffering from a concussion after fainting. Below is a statement from her Philippe Reines, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.
“While suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion. She has been recovering at home and will continue to be monitored regularly by her doctors. At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with Department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon.”
She won't be appearing in front of Congress to testify on BenghaziGate this coming Thursday.
And that's the story of how Hillary Clinton got a concussion. Doctors say she'll be fine, though. It happened earlier in the week, too. They just didn't tell us until today. That's how insignificant this is. No need for panic. She's going to work from home this week, but she's "looking forward to getting back into the office."
The only trouble is, Clinton was scheduled to testify at the congressional hearings about the Benghazi attacks on Thursday, but now she can't make it according to State Department aides who told the Associated Press. She could maybe testify at a later date? Maybe they'll go on without her.
Politico's Seung Min Kim reports her deputies William Burns and Thomas Nides will testify instead of Hillary.
What a convenient time to faint and get a concussion.

HORROR: School Shooting In Connecticut: 26 Dead, 18 Of Which Are Children

A horrible tragedy this morning in Connecticut (Fox News).
Twenty-seven people, including 20 children, were killed Friday when a gunman clad in black military gear opened fire inside his mother's kindergarten class at a Connecticut elementary school.

The shooter, who sources told FoxNews.com was 20-year-old Adam Lanza, gunned down his mother and her entire class at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., according to sources. Lanza was found dead inside the school, according to officials.

A source told Fox News that the shooter's father, who was divorced from his ex-wife, was killed at his home in New Jersey. Police were also searching for two friends of the killer, who are currently unaccounted for, sources said.
Eighteen of the children were dead at the school and two more died later, according to Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance.

His girlfriend and another friend are missing in New Jersey, according to law enforcement sources.
Local news outlets report that the shooting occurred inside a kindergarten classroom, and that all the pupils in that classroom are unaccounted for.

An official with knowledge of the situation said the shooter was armed with a .223-caliber rifle. Four weapons in total were recovered from the scene. The motive is not yet known.

...Parent Lisa Procaccini told Fox News that her daughter was sitting in a classroom when she and others heard gun shots.

"She was in a small class -- a reading group and they started hearing bangs," Procaccini said. "Her teacher, and I’m grateful for this, rushed kids into the bathroom and locked the door. They told kids it was hammering and tried to keep them calm.”

"Children were crying," Procaccini said. "She did tell me about a little boy that was in a police officer’s arms, bleeding. I don’t know if she gets it."

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said two firearms were found at the scene.

President Obama was notified of the shooting around 10:30 am ET, White House officials said.


We've endured too many of these tragedies in these past few years, and each time I receive the news I react not as a president, but as a parent," Obama said in a brief address to the nation on Friday.

"Most victims were children, between five and 10 years old...They had their entire lives ahead of them, birthdays, graduations weddings, kids of their own," he said, pausing before wiping tears from his eyes. There was some confusion earlier about the name of the shooter, mixing him up with his brother.

Mother and father killed, her kindergarten class, girlfriend missing.  It's too much to comprehend. Don't know any specifics, but am guessing there must have been some emotional problems, family issues involved? Regardless, it doesn't excuse taking rage, resentment or whatever out on other people, most of all, innocent children.

The classless vultures are out trying to use this to gin up more gun-control laws, never mind the shooting apparently happened in a "gun-free zone." Yeah, like banning guns will keep people safer. I'm so sick of these jerkoffs like fat-ass Michael Moore, Mia Farrow and others who can't shut the hell up for one minute. That goes for you too, David Frum!  Why don't you go back to Canada!

Just now, one of my 20-year-old twin sons came by the house to help with the family Christmas tree. The TV was reporting this crime, which was the first he’d heard of it. “Twenty-seven people? What the hell happened?”
“Evil,” I said, and made the darkly sarcastic suggestion that Congress would pass the “Evil Control Act of 2013″ to outlaw evil.
Dark sarcasm is just a habit, and perhaps not the best way of expressing my frustration toward idiots (like Alex Wagner of MSNBC) whose reaction to news like this is to share her cheery enthusiasm for new federal gun-control legislation. 
Exactly! Evil always looks for a way to perpetrate its horror, regardless of what well-intentioned people try to do to limit access to things, like guns.

Ace of Spades:
I'm going to go against my political team, here-- although conservatives often say "Label evil as what it is, Evil, and leave therapy and psychology out of it," I'm going to say No, not in these instances. Because Evil (notice the capital letter E) is powerful in these sad losers' imaginations, and they want to be called the Big Scary Man, the Shadow That Menaces At Midnight.
For an impotent, weak, ineffectual man, that is an attractive fantasy.
What they do not want and could not abide is an accurate assessment of their psychology, their physical stature and shortcomings, their ability to succeed in work or school, their loser history with women, and so on.
To the average people, the idea of being called Evil is bracing and restraining. Not to these fellers. All of these bizarre murders are motivated, at root, by the psychology of utter failure. These are flop-sweat murders, sexual panic murders, too weak to carry on murders. Reporting them as such would not only provide at least as small disincentive to the Power Fantasy losers who commit them, but would actually be much, much closer to the truth than "Heavy Metal poisoned his mind."
No, being the runt who no one loved all his life poisoned his mind. Heavy Metal was just his escape from that. Or Batman, or video games, or Jared Laugher's Conspiracy By Manipulation of Grammar, etc. Promoting the Batman/Heavy Metal angle takes the lunatic's diagnosis of himself as credible.
It's not.
There's a Pink Floyd song that mentions a sentence of being exposed before your peers. Let's strip the Mystery away from these guys. The Mystery angle is both complimentary (in the only way it matters-- as they assess a compliment) and false. The thoughts of a loser gone lunatic are not particularly mysterious, and not very interesting; they're all basically the same, as FBI profilers can tell you.
So less of that.
These guys are Romanticizing murder and conceiving it as some sort of Blaze of Glory heroic Act III. Everything we do and say should refuse that romanticization. Where they seek to seem big, we should make them small (which, again, is actually on the mark as far as accurately). Where they wish to seem Potent -- capable of inflicting their will on the world -- we should strip them down to what they actually are, impotent in virtually all ways. A little finger pulling a gun they didn't build is the one sad skill they've had any success with.
Let them know that murder will not be an escape from that pitiful truth, but rather a life sentence of being confronted with it.

TSA Thugs Leave Wheelchair-Bound 12 Year Old In Tears, Detain Her For One Hour

More TSA abuses, this one to a wheelchair bound 12 year old girl at Dallas/Ft Worth Airport (UK Daily Mail).

Shelbi Walser was travelling to Florida with her mother, Tammy Daniels, for treatment for her brittle bone disorder when she was stopped at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport in Texas.

A TSA agent swabbed Shelbi's hands and she tested positive for explosives. But the wheelchair, which is likely to have transferred any substance to her hands as she pushed it, was never tested, her mother said.

A video of the December 8 incident shows Shelbi sobbing as officials detain her in front of hundreds of travellers at security, but refuse to allow her mother to get close enough to comfort her.

Daniels told Fox that they even called a bomb specialist to the scene, while other passengers reportedly spoke out in support of Shelbi and offered her tissues and candy.  
'There were people saying, "Really? You're going to do this to her? Y'all have to take her somewhere private where she's not out in the public and everyone can see her",' Shelbi told Fox in Fort Worth.
'It was frightening. I kinda got mad.'
Here's the video:



And a report from WFAA in Dallas.
