Found Some Leftists Protesting Obama's Possible War on Syria

Well, what do you know! It looks like some of the Left has some intellectual honesty and is protesting Obama's possible war on Syria (Mandy Nagy, Legal Insurrection).

Protesters have gathered outside the White House to oppose intervention in Syria as Obama takes the podium.




h/t Bruce Majors
The protest was led by the Communist front group International ANSWER, who led all the anti-Bush rallies that Democrats jumped on the bandwagon of back in the 2000s.

A few protesters calling themselves Republicans / conservatives were there as well.

While I oppose a war on Syria (my reasons I laid out earlier, most notably, we would only be helping forces aligned with al-Queda with such intervention), I would urge fellow conservatives to stay far away and keep protests separate from the ANSWER freaks.

Of course, it's only a handful compared to when Democrats were willing to march arm in arm with their Commie Comrades.

To you heartbroken Lefties who are protesting and thought Obama would bring "change," I quote Sarah Palin...


Obama To Speak On Syria

He was supposed to speak at 1:15 pm EDT, but at 1:25, this is what it looked like.


He's still not at the podium...ten minutes later.

Quite telling for President Empty-suit

UPDATE: Obama spoke, will ask for Congressional approval (he blinked) then he and Joe Bite Me made a bee line to play golf.

(GRAPHIC VIDEO) Glenn Beck: This Is Who Obama, Progressive Dems & GOP Are Helping In Syria

This is graphic video of the Syrian rebels after killing one of Assad's military. Will anyone pay attention yet? (h/t Victoria Jackson on Facebook)



Obama, the Democrats, John McLame, Lindsey Grahamnesty all want to give weapons to these savages and may intervene militarily to help them.

Which is why I say...

NO BLOOD FOR AL-QUEDA

"Anti-War" Libs In Marin County, Elsewhere, Silent As Their Chickenhawk President Prepares Unilateral War On Syria

Jonn Lilyea at This Ain't Hell wrote the other day about the absence of the greying relics from the 1960s out in the streets protesting Richard Milhous Obama's rush to an illegal, unilateral war (without Congressional or UN approval) on Syria.
Our buddy, Rick Moran and Buzzfeed have noticed the absence of throngs of ill-clad hippies in the streets around the White House in regards to the impending Syria “punishment”. I remember that the communists were protesting the war in Afghanistan before the dust had cleared at the twin towers and the Pentagon. But now, the silence is deafening. Some of the odoriferous hippies blame the economy;
“I don’t think me or Medea or anyone else should be defensive about that,” Martin said. “We don’t push a button and get hundreds of thousands of people in the streets.” 
Martin blamed the anemic response among peace groups to Syria on the economy, noting that all nonprofits are struggling — not just protest groups.
Plus, Martin said, the energy on the left has been focused on drones and civil liberties, which “doesn’t rise to the level of an obviously unjust war where hundreds of thousands of people are being killed because of a belligerent president.”
But others arrived at the same conclusion many of us reached more than a decade ago – the anti-war left is partisan;
“The Democrats are missing in action because of course the president is a Democrat,” said David Swanson, a longtime antiwar activist and author of War Is a Lie and When the World Outlawed War, who works with Roots Action, a progressive nonprofit. “That’s the biggest factor, I think. What’s tamping down the activism is partisanship.” 
“This started in 2007 when it was time to focus on electing a Democratic president and the Democrats forgot about the wars,” Swanson said. “We’ve been struggling ever since to get back to where we were in 2006.”
Our buddy, John Bruhns arrived at that conclusion back in 2008 when he left VoteVets and the United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) when he discovered for himself that the movement was just cover for the Democrats.
They don't have the money, that's their excuse?  Wow!  Do you expect me to believe that George Soro$ wallet is empty and he can no longer fund these freakshows like the skanks at Code Stink?

MISSING IN ACTION IN 2013:
MARIN COUNTY, CA "BLAME AMERICA FIRST" ANTI-WAR CROWD
(From March 2007)
 
Obama's constituency on parade in San Rafael, CA





I looked the last few days at the online edition of the Marin Independent Journal, the local liberal rag in my old stomping grounds of Moron County, CA. It appears the drug-addled socialist hippie crowd from the Marin Peace & Justice Coalition (aka The Marin Appeasement & InJustice Coalition) who organized all the supposed "anti-war" rallies from 2001 to 2008 are silent.  I inquired via Twitter to the IJ News Staff:



Contrast that to a week after September 11, 2001. While smoke was still rising from the remains of the World Trade Center, the hippies of Moron County, eager to recreate their salad days of the 1960's, were out in force on the corner of Fifth and Irwin Streets in San Rafael, CA. "No War" "No Bombing" "No Blood For Oil" "No Racism" all the other leftist idiocy, not caring of the fact that thousands of their fellow citizens were murdered indiscriminately on live TV by Islamofascists.  Their attitude was belligerent when you confronted them on their idiocy and what they really represented.  One hippie on that September day stuck his hand through the window of my car with a flyer for that notorious, communist radio station in Berkeley, KPFA.

"Communist" I responded.

"F**k you" the hippie answered. (Why? Tired of sheep?)

And so it went through the eight years George W. Bush was President. Marin and Bay Area liberals loudly protested "illegal" "unilateral" wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Those of us who supported our military were labeled "chickenhawks" regardless of the fact these military hating liberals never served in the first place, and they always excused that fact for themselves.

But today, their Leftist President Obama is threatening to use military for war on Syria where there is scant evidence the Assad Regime used chemical weapons on their people. The British Parliament gave a thumbs down to intervention in Syria, so Obama is threatening to act "unilaterally" in a "go it alone" action without UN or Congressional approval. Everything Obama, Joe Bite Me, and the Democrap Party told Bush he must do they are throwing out the window.

Obama's reasoning for his rush to war is so he can toughen up his image.  Really?  Doesn't that make Obama the ultimate Chickenhawk President?  He never served, has attacked our military as murderers bombing civilians, and yet he's using them to make him look like something he's not...a tough guy.

If that's not hypocrisy, I don't know what is.

You know, it's too bad we in the right blogosphere don't get weekly paycheck from the Koch Brothers (as the left accuses us of), because if I was a well funded right blogger, I'd be willing to start a reward pool to anyone who can find and send a photo of at least one Leftist hippie in America protesting Obama's illegal and unilateral war in public.

50 Years After His "I Have A Dream" Speech: Dr. King, I'm Sorry...

I haven't watched a replay of, nor clips, from any of the speeches on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial today, 50 years after the historic day when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led a righteous cause of Americans from every color and background, for the opportunity to live in equality with whites and be judged only "by the content of their character, not the color of their skin."

From reading excerpts of Dr. Kings speech that day, and seeing video, it was a humid, sunny day in Washington DC. Fifty years later, it was cloudy, gray, and rainy on the same spot.  Perhaps it might have been the tears of Dr. King himself, looking down from Heaven, seeing how, despite the great strides America has made in achieving racial equality, race relations have become the worst in years, and under the leadership of the first black US President.

In part of his speech, King said:
But there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: in the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.

The marvellous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back.
To put it simply, Dr. King was saying we are all in this together.

But 50 years later, those who have picked up the mantle of Dr. King's legacy have been, in many cases, those for whom Booker T. Washington said:
Some of these people  do not want the Negro to lose his grievances because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well.
Many of them were speaking today on the same steps where Dr. King gave his eloquent address. They spoke a language of "us versus them," comparing the Supreme Court to the Democrat terrorist group Ku Klux Klan. There were those who have had a history speaking about "white interlopers" "diamond merchants" and "greek homos." We had the first black President who spent time in a "church" where he was moved by a sermon that spoke of "white folks greed" running a world in need.  We had a Democrat Congressman who played the race card, the same way he falsely accused Tea Party members of using the n-word against him. We had two former Democrat Presidents, one whose mentor, Sen. J. William Fulbright, was a segregationist, and whose brother was caught on tape using the "n-word." The other Democrat President loved accusing Republicans of racism back in 1980 and today, but was first elected Governor of Georgia in 1970 using racist smear tactics, and has used anti-Semitic language against the State of Israel.  Their message today was political...hijacking Dr. King's legacy in order to use it as a platform for gun control and voting rights, and playing the race card more times than at a Las Vegas casino.

This t-shirt on sale today (thanks to Tablitha Hale, via Facebook), is an example of how far the civil rights movement has fallen.

 
 
Where was the only black US Senator, Tim Scott of South Carolina, at today's rally?  He wasn't invited.  Why? He's a Tea Party Republican. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wasn't there. Oh that's right, the highest court is the KKK, according to one of the speaker. Also not asked to speak were Dr. Ben Carson and former GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain. Both of these men are American success stories, rising from nothing to achieving excellence in their careers. Why were they not invited?  Is it because they don't speak of victimhood? Is that why these men have been called slurs like "Uncle Tom," "Oreo," "monkey in a window" or " lawn jockey," because their success stories might inspire an exodus from the Liberal Victimhood Plantation?
 
Even if it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, go out and sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures.  Sweet streets like Handel and Beethoven composed music.  Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry.  Sweep streets so well that all the host of Heaven and earth will have to pause and say, Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.
That's where today's "civil rights movement" has failed, promoting victimization and hijacking Dr. King's legacy, putting it in a box marked "Property of Angry Liberals and Racial Grievance Mongers."  Yet, they're the same ones who attack free-thinking blacks as "not authentic," or turn a blind eye to black on black violence, as well as the astronomically high single-parent homes and abortion rates in the black community.

And because of that, I say as one American who wants nothing but the best for all Americans, "I'm sorry, Dr. King." I hope our nation can look back in another 50 years and see your Dream finally realized.

US Intervention In Syria: Obama's "Dumb War"

"What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne. What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income — to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression. That's what I'm opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war." -- Richard Milhous Obama, October 2002
Wow, how the times change!

One year after the terrorist act of war on 9/11, when it was unsure whether or not Saddam Hussein was training terrorists or building weapons of mass destruction (as the Slick Willie Clinton administration had also accused him of), the Democrat Party wanted to change the subject from defending America from threats abroad to the economic recession after 9/11 that was nothing, compared to the Obama Depression. They wanted to change the subject to anything that could help them defeat a President they thought was illegitimate.

Now, 11 years later, Obama and all those back in 2003-2004 who accused the Bush Administration of manufacturing lies to go to war in Iraq, are beating the war drums and beating their chests over the allegations of use of weapons of mass destruction by the Assad regime in Syria.

Now Obama, the peacenik who won the hearts of the hippie 1960s freaks and the commie skanks in Code Pinko, wants to rush off to war with a military he has weakened and shown nothing but disrespect for (NBC, via Legal Insurrection)
The United States could hit Syria with three days of missile strikes, perhaps beginning Thursday, in an attack meant more to send a message to the Syrian regime than to cripple its military, senior U.S. officials told NBC News.

The disclosure added to a growing drumbeat around the world for military action against Syria, believed to have used chemical weapons in recent days against scores of civilians and rebels who have been fighting the government for two years.

In three days of strikes, the Pentagon could assess the effectiveness of the first wave and target what was missed in further rounds, the senior officials said.
Now, while these atrocities are horrible, maybe Obama shouldn't get too rash and trigger happy. There's a lot of conflicting information on whether or not it was Assad's forces, or the Syrian rebels, who used WMDs. Walid Shoebat, a former PLO operative who turned away from terrorism, says there's proof the Syrian rebels used WMDs.
In fact, even before Assad’s forces gained the momentum, a UN official reportedly found evidence of rebels using chemical weapons but no evidence Assad’s regime did. This, from a Washington Times article by Shaun Waterman dated May 6, 2013:
Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.
Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.
But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed. {emphasis ours}
Today, while the rebels are more desperate than they were at the time of that article, evidence of rebels using chemical weapons is available; evidence Assad’s regime has used them is not.
Waterman wrote…
Rebel Free Syrian Army spokesman Louay Almokdad denied that rebels had use chemical weapons.
That doesn’t square with a video uploaded on August 23, 2013, in which Free Syrian operatives threatened to launch chemical weapons:



...In this video, two Syrian rebels (Muslim Brotherhood gang) can be heard coordinating an attack on a nearby building. As smoke billows a short distance from the building, a rebel on the ground can be heard directing someone – presumably at the source of the launch – to change his direction. At that point, the rebel from the launch point can be heard talking about using sarin gas next:


Now, I don't know if they get USAToday at the White House, but if they did, I wonder if they either missed this story or ignored it, about the Syrian Rebels whom Obama, Hanoi John Kerry and RINOs like John McLame want to help.
A Syrian rebel group's April pledge of allegiance to al-Qaeda's replacement for Osama bin Laden suggests that the terrorist group's influence is not waning and that it may take a greater role in the Western-backed fight to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The pledge of allegiance by Syrian Jabhat al Nusra Front chief Abou Mohamad al-Joulani to al-Qaeda leader Sheik Ayman al-Zawahri was coupled with an announcement by the al-Qaeda affiliate in Iraq, the Islamic State of Iraq, that it would work with al Nusra as well.

Lebanese Sheik Omar Bakri, a Salafist who says states must be governed by Muslim religious law, says al-Qaeda has assisted al Nusra for some time.

"They provided them early on with technical, military and financial support , especially when it came to setting up networks of foreign jihadis who were brought into Syria," Bakri says. "There will certainly be greater coordination between the two groups."

Wonderful! Obama not only wants to send arms to, but also launch US cruise missiles, to help an al-Queda affiliated group.  So let me guess...Obama, John Kerry and the Democrats are opposed to wars against al-Queda, but are willing to support the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Queda overthrow nations in Africa and now Syria?  How did Obama's aid to the al-Queda insurgents in Libya help us out? They attacked our embassy on 9/11/2012 and killed four Americans while Obama slept.

As much as a bad guy as Assad is (and he is a bad guy), do we want to risk American lives to help al-Queda have a stronghold in the Middle East, near Israel, by overthrowing Assad?  Does Obama want to risk straining relations with Russia and other nations?  Is he going to violate the War Powers Act by refusing to go to Congress to seek authorization for war?  Will Joe Bite Me call for Obama's impeachment, just as he threatened Bush in 2007, if Congress is bypassed?

It looks like what we have here is Obama's "dumb war. A rash war" to "distract" from the one year anniversary of the Benghazi terror attack and Obama's "lie after lie" about what caused it. It's a distraction as well from other scandals from his Regime and their Stalinist-style manner of using the government to silence political opposition while shoving their ideology down our throats.

Maybe Obama should just load his teleprompter with his 2002 speech and read it to himself, because he's doing what he accused others of.

Sarah Palin: If You Fund It (Obamacare) You Own It!

Sarah Palin made her voice heard on the monstrosity known as Obamacare, and the RINO Republican establishment who refuses to fight it (Facebook).
Forced enrollment in Obama's "Unaffordable Care Act" is weeks away. This beast must be stopped -- by not funding it. Today, Todd and I joined with many of our fellow citizens to urge those in the U.S. Senate to not fund Obamacare.

We The People must continue to make our voices heard and hold those elected to serve this great nation accountable. Those in the Senate and those seeking to serve there must stand strong against this devastating program before it reveals its true face now recognized by both sides of the aisle as the bureaucratic and economic beast that will deny our families, our businesses, and our sick the ability to access health care.

The time for rhetoric and ceremonial votes in Congress is over. The time to take serious action to stop Obamacare is now. Join us in urging Senators -- Don't Fund Obamacare! Just remember -- if you fund it, you own it!...

- Sarah Palin

P.S.: Click here to join us in signing this petition: http://www.dontfundobamacare.com/ 

Thank you Sarah for showing something the GOP country club establishment refuses to show--leadership!

Senator Ted Cruz, from my home state, was on Sean Hannity's show last night about the effort he and others are leading to defund Obamacare, while also speaking on other issues like Syria.

Karl Rove's Answer To Fighting Obamacare: Don't Defund It, Make A Video

This morning, I received an e-mail from Jonathan Collegio at the Karl Rove affiliated PAC Crossroads GPS, on how they have entered the Health and Human Services video contest to promote the President's expensive and risky socialist healthcare scheme to younger Americans.
WASHINGTON – Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) today announced it has entered the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services video contest aimed at promoting Obamacare among young people.

The video, which was submitted late Sunday night, is entitled, plainly, "Propaganda." It can be viewed here (Preview)

The video goes on to capture many of the less savory aspects of the law that HHS has glossed over in its talking points and official literature – including the penalty for not complying with the individual mandate, and the dramatic increase in premiums for younger people that are taking effect.

"We're in it to win it," said Crossroads GPS president and CEO Steven Law. "There is an ugly side to this law, and we expect the government to communicate those less savory aspects of the law to young people just as they are hyping some of the benefits. We hope every young person will watch this video – and vote for it."
What do you think?


You know, it would be nice if Rove and Crossroads GPS was "in it to win it" when it comes to actually defunding and killing this horrific bill that was shoved down the collective throat of this nation. But as we've seen from Rove, he's got too much of a yellow streak to fight, except when it comes to the Tea Party, Sarah Palin and conservatives, then Rove wants to go after them with more vigor than Crossroads does with Obama. Same with Collegio, who earlier this year on WMAL attacked Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center as a "hater" with "weird personal axes to grind."

Sorry Karl, but it's going to take more than a video to get rid of Obamacare. From the way you and your fellow "eunuchs at the orgy" act against those trying to get rid of it, you should have made a video promoting it!

"Krispy Kreme" Chris Christie Attacks GOP & Sides With Obama Over "Common Core"

In case you haven't heard of it, a new education curriculum, "Common Core" is being pushed nation-wide that not only threatens local oversight over education, but has been pushed by radicals like unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers.

Michelle Malkin has written warnings about this so-called education system.

But that hasn't stopped several statist Republicans (ie RINOs) from pushing this radical education agenda, like Jeb Bush and the Tony Soprano wannbe from New Jersey, Gov. Chris "Krispy Kreme" Christie (Dan Riehl).


Christie is a belligerent smear merchant and to disagree with him means to be attacked. He also has more in common with Obama than he does much of the GOP. He should change parties and challenge Hillary in 2016 if he’s set on running for POTUS.

According to Twitter the press was barred from this event but the WJS has a report up at link below. Why not take your shots out in the open, Christie, you jerk?
Mr. Christie, speaking at a charter-school conference, said Republicans who opposed education issues such as the Common Core State Standards were having a “knee-jerk” reaction to something the president supports. 
“If the president likes something, the Republicans in Congress don’t,” and vice versa, he said Thursday at the KIPP School Summit in Las Vegas. “It is this mindset in D.C. right now that says we have to be at war constantly, because to not be at war is to show weakness, and to show weakness is to lead to failure. And I just don’t buy that.”
via Christie Spars With GOP Again, This Time Over Education Standards – Metropolis – WSJ.

Excuse me, fatboy, but if there's an education agenda being pushed nationwide that is promoted by anti-American radicals and dumbs down students in regards to math (creative math), isn't it the duty of parents and officials to oppose it?

I hope to God that GOP voters in New Jersey will either vote for the Democrat or stay at home on election day and send fatboy packing out of the governor's office. If the Republican Party wants him to be their nominee in 2016, well, they deserve to lose.

Mark Levin Booksigning At Tysons Corner, VA, for NY Times Bestseller: "The Liberty Amendments"

Earlier this afternoon, I went to the Barnes and Noble at Tyson's Corner, VA for Mark Levin's latest bestseller, The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic.

 

"The Great One" started the booksigning at 10 a.m. I arrived around 3:00 p.m. and had a signed copy about 45 minutes later. I heard from employees that the first 20 people were lining up at around 5 a.m. to be at the front of the line....five hours before the book signing was to begin.
 


The Liberty Amendments has debuted at the top of the New York Times bestseller list, along with many other lists as well. It has been a number one at Amazon as well.

But despite this, there are the attackers of the book, usual suspects like the George Soro$ funded fraud Media Mutters, but also to their shame, several establishment Republicans as well. Case in point is this one idiot writing at Ricochet, who is part of the problem instead of the solution.  The RINO detractors of Levin's proposals are, essentially, acting like eunuchs at an orgy.  They attack those who offer a way forward, while never proposing solutions or new ideas of their own.

It's one thing to complain about the problem of Obama and the liberals unconstitutional overreach into more of our liberties aided and abetted by a rogue judiciary. But complaining only goes so far. Levin offers ideas on how we can get our nation back to the principles it was founded upon, and so far, he's the only one I see proposing a way forward.  Rinse Preebus, John McLame, Lindsey Grahamnesty or Chris "Krispy Kreme" Christie aren't.  They just want to maintain the status quo.

I'll report back on The Liberty Amendments after I've read it. Go out and buy a copy or order it online.

Ft. Hood Jihadist Nidal Hassan GUILTY Of November 2009 Shooting Spree Influcenced By Islam

So lets fry the bastard now and send him to his 72 virgins who look like Helen Thomas (TheBlaze).

Army Maj. Nidal Hasan has been convicted of all charges in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood and is now eligible for the death penalty.
 
Military jurors found Hasan guilty of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder.
 
Hasan, a former Army psychiatrist who acted as his own attorney during the trial, admitted to opening fire in a crowded waiting room full of unarmed soldiers preparing to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan. Thirteen people were killed and more than 32 injured.
 
Hasan himself was paralyzed from the waist down after another soldier fired on him to stop the shooting.
 
Hasan, who is a Muslim, initially tried to argue that he shot the soldiers to protect Taliban leaders in Afghanistan.
 
The court proceedings saw numerous interruptions over the past several months over Hasan’s beard, which he said he grew as a mark of his Muslim faith but was prohibited under military regulations.

Reminder that Hassan yelled "Allah Akbar" (God is great) while he went on his terrorist act, which the Islamofascist denying Obama Regime had relabeled "workplace violence" and survivors were denied Purple Hearts.

Racist Eric Holder Attacks Texas Voter ID Laws As Voter In Democrat Primary Faces Vote Fraud Charges

The InJustice Department, led by the most partisan and racist attorney general in American history, Eric "My People" Holder, is making the mistake of Messing with Texas and their Voter ID laws (The Blaze).
The Justice Department said Thursday it will sue Texas over the state’s voter ID law and will seek to intervene in a lawsuit over the state’s redistricting laws.

Attorney General Eric Holder said the action marks another step in the effort to protect voting rights of all eligible Americans. He said the government will not allow a recent Supreme Court decision to be interpreted as open season for states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights.
 
On June 25, the Supreme Court threw out the most powerful part of the Voting Rights Act, whose enactment in 1965 marked a major turning point in black Americans’ struggle for equal rights and political power.
 
In the voter ID lawsuit, the U.S. government will contend that Texas adopted a voter identification law with the purpose of denying or restricting the right to vote on account of race, color or membership in a language minority group.
What Holder is trying to do, essentially, is going out of his way to make sure like Sonia Solis can vote...as many times as they can, for Democrats (ValleyCentral KGBT 4).

 
A woman accused of voting several times during Cameron County's July 2012 Democratic Party Primary Runoffs will soon face a judge in Brownsville.

Sonia Leticia Solis is out on a personal recognizance bond but is expected to be arraigned before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald Morgan on Wednesday, August 28th.

FBI agents arrested Solis in Fort Worth earlier this week.

Solis is accused of using absentee ballots from five Brownsville area residents to vote several times in the runoffs.

...Court records show that Solis was once pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor marijuana charges back in January 2004.

...If convicted in federal court on the voting fraud charges, Solis faces five years in federal prison and/or a $10,000 fine.

But maybe she'll get a job in the InJustice Department, along with the New Black Panther for whom Holder dropped voter intimidation charges against.

Two Black Teens Suspected In Beating Death Of WWII Vet. Jesse, Al, Obama & Holder Silent

As a follow up to the killing of Christopher Lane in Oklahoma by some "bored" teens, sad news from Spokane, WA, as a World War II vet who survived the bloody battle at Okinawa Island was beaten to death in a parking lot, allegedly by two black teenagers.  One of the suspects is now in custody (USA Today).


Spokane police said Friday they have arrested one of two teenagers wanted as suspects in the beating death of an 88-year-old World War II vet who was wounded at Okinawa.

Delbert Belton, known as "Shorty," died Thursday from head injuries suffered in the attack Wednesday night outside the Eagles Lodge.

KHQ-TV reports that the 16-year-old is being held in juvenile detention but will be charged as an adult and faces first degree murder and first degree robbery charges.

Police had released the photos of two teenagers seen in area surveillance footage.

Police say they received a call about an assault and found the victim sitting in his car. The medical examiner said Belton suffered "blunt facial and head injuries" and ruled his death a homicide, The Spokesman-Review reports.

KXLY-TV quotes witnesses as saying two black male suspects attacked Belton as he was about to head inside the lodge to play pool. KHQ-TV reports that police believe the assault was a random attack.

Meanwhile, you don't hear the same level of outrage at the brutal killing of this man who risked his life for our nation by Richard Milhous Obama, the racist Attorney General Eric Holder, or those two phony "Reverends" Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.  But they'll get their bullhorns out and make a martyr of Trayvon Martin, while the President of the United States claimed that pot smoking, ghetto thug would have been his son.

Where's the NAACP?  I'm sure they'll be out using Martin's name as they hijack the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. this weekend on the 50th anniversary of his "I have a dream" speech.

But there's never any accountability for murder from these race hustlers, because it isn't a "creepy ass cracker" who acted in self-defense.

SILENCE FROM RACE HUSTLERS: Two Black Teens Murder White Australian Baseball Player

Remember how, after the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, how the race hustlers like the "Reverend" Al "Resist We Much" Sharpton and others got their bullhorns out screaming "No Justice, No Peace," and did all they could to claim the killing of Trayvon Martin was proof racism was alive and well in America.

There's tragedy this week in Oklahoma (Twitchy).
The New York Post reports that three suspects — Chancey Luna, 16, James Edwards, 15, and Michael Jones, 17 — told police, “We were bored and decided to kill somebody.” Christopher Lane, 23, a native of Australia studying in Oklahoma, was shot in the back and died an hour later. “They saw Christopher jog by the house they were at, they chose him to be the target, they got in the car, drove up behind him and shot him in the back,” Duncan, Okla., police chief Danny Ford said.
Former US Congressman from Florida Allen West commented on Twitter:


Why the silence Obama? Especially when you claim to represent the entire country.

Same with you Al, Jesse, Oprah...all you racial grievance mongers who were making insane comparisons of Trayvon Martin to Emmitt Till because you have to keep the racial resentment alive.  Your silence is deafening today.

Police Thuggery Against Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment Protesters in Missouri & California

This past weekend, groups of patriots took to overpasses across America to hold rallies called Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment.

Twitchy has a collection of Tweets from rallies across the nation.

But there were also attempts by law enforcement to oppress the free speech of the protesters, like here in Missouri (YouTube video user, TheNewSurvivalist).
Survival Doc (the videographer) and Mark M. are arrested for not obeying an officer and Mark was also charged with resisting arrest. Did he resist arrest? You be the judge. Oh, and they never read us our Miranda Rights. We spent 24 hours in the St. Charles Count Jail with Missouri Hwy Trooper Jenkins acting as judge, jury and executioner. (Note: I am the videographer of this video and the activist who was arrested wearing the yellow t-shirt. Near the end, as a cop had my left hand in a handcuff behind my back I am holding the camera in my right hand and as the cop is reaching for my right hand I pass the camera off to Constitution Kim who finishes the recording documenting my arrest.)


Not once did the police officers cite a law or ordinance that specified protesters could not hold a demonstration on an overpass.

Dana Loesch is awaiting a response from Missouri authorities on the above video and points out that Missouri has had a history of attacking dissent against the Chicago Jesus, ranging from the Obama Truth Squad in 2008, the firing of KMOV anchor Larry Conners, and the recent "Clowngate" as some examples.

But police thuggery against anti-Obama protesters isn't limited to Missouri, but also to the deep blue state of Commiefornia (California), where, the previous weekend, this videographer was not only almost run over by a Caltrans truck, but a couple of "CHiPs" came over, shoved him to the ground, then threatened to use a taser on him.

What Offends You More: Plane For First Dog, POTUS Unilaterally Delaying Obamacare, Or Rodeo Clown Mocking Obama?

If you're a patriot who is concerned about our national debt, and about the rule of law, you're probably offended at an Imperial President who has the gall to...

1. Fly his dog and basketballs on a Marine Corps Osprey to Martha's Vineyard, instead of that cramped (excuse the sarcasm) 747.


2. Today, Obama decided on his own, without Congress lifting a finger, to delay another part of his failed Obamacare socialist healthcare scheme--caps of out-of-pocket expenses that were supposed to go into effect next year.

But if you're a Democrat or a liberal, you're more offended that a rodeo clown in Missouri mocked their false Messiah by wearing an Obama mask and got chased by a bull.





Now, not only has the rodeo clown in question has lost his job, but the announcer is fearing he will lose his job as a school superintendent (NewsLeader.com).
A rodeo announcer at the Missouri State Fair has resigned as president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboys Association.

Mark Ficken stepped down Monday evening from the post and says he's been unfairly roped into a controversy involving a clown posing as President Obama.

Ficken says he's been threatened physically and fears he'll lose his job as superintendent of the Boonville School District. The school board is launching an investigation into whether Ficken was involved in any of the behavior many are calling offensive.

"He's shaking like a small dog passing razor blades," Ficken's lawyer, Albert Watkins, said.

Watkins says other than saying, "Watch out for that bull, Obama," Ficken was not part of the performance.

"These weren't words uttered by him, these weren't words that were furthered by him. This wasn't an act that was conceived by him," Watkins said.

But even so, Watkins says Ficken has gotten hundreds of threatening emails and fears he'll lose his job.

Meanwhile, the Missouri State Fair Commission instituted a lifetime ban against the rodeo clown who wore the mask and who they say made the statements.
Liberals like "Air" Claire McCaskill and even some spineless Republicans have been quick to denounce the circus clown, never mind that dummies of George H.W. Bush were used as props at a rodeo in 1994, and no one was offended.

But in all the feigned outrage, there's a ton of hypocrisy.

Dana Loesch points out that Democrats didn't protest when the late Mel Carnahan appeared in blackface, instead, the libs defended the "minstrel show."

Loesch also noted that the NAACP wants the DOJ, run by racist Attorney General Eric "My People" Holder, to investigate the rodeo clown, never mind that the St. Louis NAACP attacked Kenneth Gladney, a black man. Not only was Mr. Gladney (who was selling Gadsden flags) called a "nigger" and assaulted by (S)SEIU members outside an August 2009 town hall, a member of the supposed civil rights group called Gladney another racial epithet: "Uncle Tom."



US News and World Report had a great take on this, saying the banning of the rodeo clown borders on Stalinism.
Making fun of the President of the United States is what we do in America. It's a subtle reminder that we are a nation of laws, not of men, and that we threw off the monarchy more than 225 years ago and have not looked back since. We poke fun at our elected leaders to keep them from getting too big for their britches, to remind them – and ourselves – that we are all just citizens, some having been chosen by the rest of us to carry a greater share of the responsibility for the conduct of civic affairs.

From Mark Twain to Will Rodgers, from Fred Allen to Mort Sahl, Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, humorists, clowns and comedians have made taking shots at politicians their bread and butter. Until Barack Obama that is.

In days past, making fun of the president, not just his policies but the man himself, was no big deal. Some, like FDR, Kennedy and Reagan, appeared to take it in stride and were able to give as good as they got. Others, like Nixon, found little to laugh at. Obama is different. People are all too sensitive about what passes for funny where he is concerned, lest it displace him from the pedestal on which his supporters have placed him.

...Taste is not a factor here. There were plenty of things that were written about George W. Bush and said about Ronald Reagan that were in very bad taste, yet some people laughed and the tellers of the tale got away with it. Under Obama, people are so fawningly, stupidly concerned about hidden meanings and matters of perception that they are falling all over themselves to avoid giving offense.

It is unfortunate the culture has been changed in this way, for comedy's sake as well as the nation's well-being. It may be a naturally defensive posture to take given that the Alinskites who worship Obama and all that he stands for use public shaming as a rather effective bludgeon against anyone who gets in their way. As has been previously noted, in the age of the community organizer president the ones who scream the loudest, longest often win even when the facts are not on their side.

A lifetime ban on a poor rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask, when there is, as the AP noted, a tradition of poking fun at all presidents in the same way in that venue, is not only extreme but borders on Stalinist. Remember, a bad joke told in Soviet Russia could get one sent to the gulag. In this case the offender should probably be grateful he is only being sent to the unemployment line.
But it's frightening too that, in a nation where liberals can mock and/or blaspheme Jesus Christ and tell those offended that it's free speech, it is a different story when their false Messiah Obama is ridiculed. Then, the Obama cult-followers become witch hunters come out of the woodwork "to beat and burn and kill."


 
 
And it's even worse when the abuses and excesses of an Imperial Presidency are distracted by liberals in another game of "SQUIRREL!"

While Seniors' Healthcare Prices Go Up, RINO Karl Rove Still Afraid To Take On Obamacare

Yes, the same RINO Karl Rove who attacks conservatives and Tea Party patriots, is a wimp when it comes to taking on Obama, the liberals, and their job killing, health-care premium increasing Obamacare (Politico).

The war over the GOP’s strategy to fight Obamacare spilled onto the radio waves Monday as Karl Rove went toe-to-toe with Utah Sen. Mike Lee for an hour on Sean Hannity’s radio show.
...“If you fund this thing, you own it,” Lee said of any Republicans that support a bill that includes Obamacare funding.
This tactic is vehemently opposed by Republicans like Rove, who believe the strategy will result in the GOP being blamed for a government shutdown and hurt the party’s electoral aspirations nationwide.
Lee sought Monday to move the debate away from the shutdown theatrics, instead putting forth a strategy in which the GOP-controlled House passes a bill funding the government that contains a rider from Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ga.) that defunds the Affordable Care Act. Lee then said the tables would be turned on Senate Democrats to make the shutdown decision.
“Would they choose to shut down government?” Lee asked of Democrats. “Or do the right thing?”
But Rove said there’s not a single Democratic vote in the Senate for such a strategy and demanded Lee suggest Senate Democrats who could be turned to to defund the law. Lee responded that he wants to lock down Republicans first. Rove concluded Lee’s effort would backfire and be a replay of 1995, a government shutdown often blamed on the GOP.
...Lee said critics of his plan are presenting a “false choice” between a shutdown and Obamacare. And he worries that Republicans are beginning to run out of steam in the defund battles.
“We cave and we cave and we cave,” Lee said. “This is how we get into trouble.”
Exactly. Which is why many Americans, including those who would identify themselves as Republicans, are fed up and running away from the party. We're seeing this in town halls already.

And who is Rove giving aid and cover to? Democrats, who are now saying they are going to run on Obamacare as a positive to win Congress in 2014.

Of course, Rove and the GOP establishment will get cocky like they did in 2012 with the "electable" Mitt Romney. But what would need to be done, and what would get Americans on the side to push for defunding Obamacare, is to messasge.

Example. I just found out today from my mother that she is having to shop around for a new health-care provider for her Medicare supplemental.  Why? She can no longer afford her current plan. Besides the promise that health-care premiums would go down, wasn't one of Obama's promises (which was a big lie) that you could keep your plan if you liked it?  So, seniors like Mom, as well as those who are losing their hours because of the part-time clause in Obamacare, are suffering.

While Karl Rove and the establishment RINO's want to do nothing? Just like Rove thought George W. Bush shouldn't go on the offensive against some of the worst rhetoric during the Iraq War. What a great strategery that was.

I'm past the point of being sick of Rove and all these other establishment GOP creeps who are so tough when it comes to attacking conservatives but don't have ball number one when it comes to rolling back Obama's socialist agenda.

Lee, Rubio and the others need a messaging offensive to defund Obamacare and take their case to the people to demand their Reps do the jobs they were elected to do.

And Karl Rove? He needs that white board stuck where the sun doesn't shine, as well as a coat of tar and feathers.

Obama Flies Gas-Guzzing 747 To Martha's Vineyard, First Dog Flies On Separate Helicopter, WH Tours Still Closed

Can you imagine of George W. Bush, his father, or any Republican President had wasted taxpayer's money like this?

As usual, you have to go to overseas news to find out what Obama's leg-humpers in the media won't report (UK Telegraph).
Bo, the president's Portuguese Water Dog, arrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane.

It was the first time the Ospreys have been taken on holiday by a US president.

More than 70 hotel rooms, each costing up to $345 (£220) a night, have been booked out for Secret Service agents, who took charge of luggage including two large mesh bags full of basketballs.

The Obamas are staying in Chilmark on the western tip of the island, an area that is dotted with multi-million dollar homes. The neighbours include actor Ted Danson and the singer Carly Simon.

On several previous visits the Obamas had stayed at the 28-acre Blue Heron Farm, but it has since been sold to Britain's most celebrated architect, Baron Foster of Thames Bank.

The president has therefore had to downsize to a $7.6 million, 5,000-square foot retreat on nine acres which is owned by a businessman friend from Chicago. It includes a basketball court.

As a result Mr Obama will be staying closer to public roads which will have to be closed as his motorcade heads for the golf course or bookshop.
Meanwhile, White House tours are still closed, Obama's RINO anti-Semite defense secretary Schmuck Hagel wants more cuts to our military, while Obama and Moochelle, who claim to care so much for the little people, travel on the taxpayers dime without a care in the world.

Why does Obama need to have a separate plane for his dog, when they took a huge, gas-guzzling 747 to Martha's Vineyard (proof below)?


To note, when Slick Willie Clinton was President, he took a smaller DC-9-32 to Martha's Vineyard instead of the 747, as Obama did.

Why Do Libs & RINOs Want To Give Amnesty To Illegals From A Nation That Releases Drug Lord Who Killed DEA Agent?

I heard this news over the weekend and remembered the case well, because when this murder of a US DEA agent happened (in the mid 1980s), it really started to discourage a lot of us who lived on the Texas/Mexico border from going to the border towns (Fox News).
The surprise release of Rafael Caro Quintero, a Mexican drug lord jailed for killing a US agent, has angered Washington and increased concerns about Mexico's judicial system.

Caro Quintero was sentenced to 40 years in prison for ordering the 1985 abduction, torture and murder of US Drug Enforcement Agency agent Enrique Camarena and his Mexican pilot Alfredo Zavala.

He had 12 years left to run on his sentence, and could have faced more charges in the US. 
But on Wednesday a judge in the western state of Jalisco ordered the release of Caro Quintero, 60, on a technicality. By Friday the once powerful capo had left the Puente Grande prison and vanished.

US officials suspect that Mexican agents leaked information that led to Camarena's killing. 
The case plunged US-Mexican relations into a crisis, and it took decades for anti-drug agencies on both sides of the border to rebuild trust.

Ties were better under the government of President Felipe Calderon, of the conservative National Action Party (PAN), who shared criminal information with US officials and extradited scores of Mexicans to face drug charges in the United States.

But Mexico's new president, Enrique Pena Nieto from the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), who took office in December, has said he wants a more independent role for Mexico in the drug war.
That's only part of the reason. You want to know what is really behind it? Obama is such a laughingstock no one takes him seriously on the world stage. So, Mexico has essentially thumbed their nose at the United States. I almost wonder if there's some backhanded slap at Obama after his Regime oversaw the Fast and Furious gun-running scheme that killed hundreds of Mexican citizens, as well as a US Border Patrol agent.

Yet Obama, the libs and RINOs want to give amnesty to citizens from Mexico, after they released this killer?

Reid Admits What We Knew All Along: Obamacare A Step Toward Single-Payer Healthcare

Congratulations low-information voters...you got fooled again (LV Sun, via FreeRepublic).
In just about seven weeks, people will be able to start buying Obamacare-approved insurance plans through the new health care exchanges.
But already, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is predicting those plans, and the whole system of distributing them, will eventually be moot.
Reid said he thinks the country has to “work our way past” insurance-based health care during a Friday night appearance on Vegas PBS’ program “Nevada Week in Review.”
“What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,” Reid said.
When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as the means of accessing it, Reid said: “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”
The idea of introducing a single-payer national health care system to the United States, or even just a public option, sent lawmakers into a tizzy back in 2009, when Reid was negotiating the health care bill.

Of course, we in the conservative new media warned you all of this back in 2009, especially when Linda Douglass at the White House wanted Americans to snitch on their neighbors who were telling the truth about Obama's socialist healthcare grab.

We also have the videos of candidate Obama to prove how he is a proponent of "single-payer universal healthcare" and talked about "transitioning" from the coverage we had at one time to a single-payer system (see below).


But since we have a "mainstream media" who act like lapdogs instead of watchdogs, and partisans who can be bought like a cheap trick on the street just to help the party, this risky scheme was shoved down the throat of America.

Now we're paying the price for it.

Bee County, TX Cuts Back On Program For Elderly, Disabled Due To Obamacare

Someone tell RINO John Cornyn and the other cowards who are attacking conservatives who are trying to do something they were elected to do...stop Obamacare.

Because this is an example from the Bee County (Beeville) area of Texas (just northwest of Corpus Christi), where a program for the elderly and disabled is now cutting back hours for part-time workers (KRIS-TV 6).

When the Affordable Care Act takes effect next year, all part-time employees who work over 30 hours a week would have to get health insurance benefits, and that's something Bee County can not afford.

So, with their fiscal year starting October, they're capping the number of hours a part-time worker can work to 24 per week.

And that is causing issues for the Bee Community Action Agency.

One of their biggest functions is to help transport elderly and disabled people to and from appointments, jobs, etc...

All of their drivers are part-time.

And while some of their drivers are retirees and don't rely on the income, there are some that do. And those drivers might head for greener pastures.

Anna Simo is the Executive Director for the agency.

"There's a lot of competition right now with the oil and gas industry, and they're paying better wages than we are. You know, and now we're cutting the hours," she says.

Richard Arriola is one of the drivers who is worried that less drivers means they won't be able to help nearly as many disabled and elderly.

"We're going to have to cut back on pickups because we run out of time. They don't want us to go over 24 hours," he says.

Now this is an area where the Republicans are missing an opportunity to put a face to how Obamacare is hurting the nation.  How it is not affordable and, how it is killing jobs, taking services away from people, and causing people to lose insurance.

Wife Of Ft. Hood Jihad Survivor Says DOD Is Trying To Silence Them

According to one wife of a survivor of Nidal Hassan's jihadist attack at Ft. Hood, TX, the Department of Defense is trying to gag families (Dana Loesch at RedState).

Autumn Manning, wife of Army Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning who was wounded in the Ft. Hood terror attack, is speaking out on Twitter. Manning claims that the Department of Defense has “slapped victims of violence with gag orders” and is preventing them to discuss denial of benefits and other developments in the wake of the attack.

The attack was famously classified as “workplace violence” and as of such, wounded have been denied combat benefits.

As Loesch asks, after a follow up question to Manning added as an update, what is the DOD trying to hide, if it doesn't want people to talk?  Will members of Congress look into this allegation and find out why this is happening?

Obama Rewards Liberal Enablers With Presidential Medal of Freedom Awards


A good way of paying back those who've helped you out or aided your agenda, give them a Presidential Medal of Freedom (WSJ).

The White House announced that President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, to 16 recipients including television star and businesswoman Oprah Winfrey, legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and former President Bill Clinton.
 
“The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their own lives to enriching ours,” Mr. Obama said in a statement released by the White House. “This year’s honorees have been blessed with extraordinary talent, but what sets them apart is their gift for sharing that talent with the world.”
 
Mr. Obama will award the medals later this year. In total, 16 people will receive the award, the White House said.

I looked over at the Washington ComPost and it was pathetic. Another reason for the liberal rag to publicly pat itself on the back for bringing down a Republican President (albeit, a corrupt big government Republican) 40 years ago, but they're too lazy or don't care about bringing down the current occupant of the White House, who makes Nixon look like a Boy Scout.  But nowhere will we talk about how "Gentle Ben" should have been fired for hiring the fraud known as Janet Cooke.  Also not mentioned is how he started an affair with one of his subordinates who later became his wife. She got high profile jobs, while he even defended her when she wrote a false story about Zibignew Brzezinski allegedly unzipping his fly in front of a female reporter.

Who else is getting a Medal of Freedom? Feminazi Gloria Steinhem, who ushered in the era of men-hatred through radical feminism.  Sister Toldjah reminds us the truth about Steinhem's horrible legacy:
And what is the ‘official’ WH bio on Ms. Steinem?
Gloria Steinem is a renowned writer and activist for women’s equality.  She was a leader in the women’s liberation movement, co-founded Ms. magazine, and helped launch a wide variety of groups and publications dedicated to advancing civil rights. Ms. Steinem has received dozens of awards over the course of her career, and remains an active voice for women’s rights.
What a load of baloney. “Activist for women’s equality”? Considering over half the unborn babies aborted since Roe v. Wade were girl babies, and considering the epidemic of sex selective abortions in China and India – which she has said next to nothing about – I think calling this woman an “activist for women’s equality” is stretching it quite a bit. I’ve said it a million times: If you’re ok with the abortion of millions of unborn girl babies because you think abortion should be considered “sacred ground”, you are not pro-woman. You are pro-abortion.
 What "feminism" is really all about--male bashing
Add to that the popular sentiment at the time that was pushed by Steinem and other prominent “feminists” that traditional female roles equated to “slavery” and “women needed men like fish needed bicycles” – basically, in so many words, demanding that women view men as evil “patriarchal beings” who only viewed woman as necessary in two places: the kitchen and the bedroom.  While it’s true that mindset existed among some men at the time, it was a blanket assertion about ALL men made by these so-called “pioneers of feminism” that stretched the bounds of credibility by a wide margin. Were there men who wanted to keep their wives stashed away at home then? Yes. Do those type of men still exist? Yes. But in either era – the “Second Wave” era in the 60s and 70s and now – those types of men are far outnumbered by the types of men who are perfectly ok with the women in their lives, whether it be their wife, sister, daughter, mother, etc., balancing a career and home life.  Not only that, but these same men view serious (not casual sex) relationships with the opposite sex as a “50/50″ thing in terms of the decision-making process.  Husbands and wives discuss if its feasible for the wife to stay home once she becomes pregnant and to be a stay at home mom for the first five or so years of their child’s life.  They discuss the balancing act of a woman being pregnant and choosing to continue to work.  In other words, they share their opinions with each other, talk things out, and come to decisions on family-planning and family-raising jointly. THAT’s equality, “feminists.”
But liberalism isn't about equality. It's all about "payback."

GOOD! GOP Rep Hears It From Constituents: "We're Losing The Country So Quit Being Nice Guys"

Wishful thinking, but this is probably the only way the nation will be saved, is when the constituents are angry enough to give their spineless GOP Reps an earful of their disgust, as Greta van Susteren showed at a town hall for deep blue Maryland Rep. Andy Harris (Mediaite).

One man complained about NSA spying, saying Congress needs to “come clean” with the public about the government’s secret interpretation of the law. Harris assured him that he’s personally outraged by NSA surveillance, adding that they have “not seen the end of” investigations into Benghazi and the IRS scandals.

Another man piped up, “Innocent people… are getting slammed by partisan politics.” Maryland resident Ed Hunter confronted Hunter directly, telling him John Boehner needs to start “defying” Obama and threatening him with impeachment if he doesn’t “start obeying the laws!” Hunter continued, “Listen, we’re dying out here because you guys are being nice guys!”, adding, “We’re losing the country! I want to see more defiance!”



 
 
Amen brother!
 
I have no doubt that so many more people across the country feel this way.  There is no leadership in Congress, very few people standing up for us. 
 
I can come here, bash Obama and the Democrats, but it only goes so far.  It's up to those who are elected as an opposition party to do something. Right now, I'm more disgusted with the leadership of the Republican Party apparatus and in Congress, who are too willing to make deals and too cowardly to fight because they're afraid of looking bad.

Did Valerie Jarrett Give The "Stand Down" Order While Benghazi Consulate Was Attacked?

From Investors Business Daily, via Doug Ross Journal.

Scandal: The omnipresent power behind the throne some have called the president's Rasputin had the power to call off three strikes against Osama bin Laden. She may have used that power again the night four Americans died in Benghazi.
The Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, came while America failed to mount a rescue mission despite sufficient time and assets. Included in that disaster were the unaccounted whereabouts of President Obama during eight critical hours, the lack of Situation Room photos, the failure by the president to follow up with subordinates before his trip to Las Vegas and the fabricated story that the whole thing was prompted by an Internet video.
....One of the people Obama always talks to is Valerie Jarrett. She emerged from the same Chicago cauldron of radicalism where Obama got his ideological baptism.
The Iranian-born Jarrett (her parents were American-born expatriates) is the only staff member who regularly follows the president home from the West Wing to the residence and one of the few people allowed to call the president by his first name.
Her influence is shown by an account in Richard Miniter's book "Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him."
It relates that at the urging of Jarrett, Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden three times before approving the Navy SEAL mission in Pakistan on May 2, 2011. Seems she was concerned about political harm to Obama if the mission failed.
Miniter writes that the president canceled the kill mission in January 2011, again in February and a third time in March, in each instance at the urging of Jarrett. Miniter cites a source within the Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning.
Edward Klein, author of "The Amateur," a best-selling book about Obama, asked Obama if he ran every decision by Jarrett, and the president responded, "Absolutely."
A former foreign editor of Newsweek and editor of the New York Times Magazine, Klein describes Jarrett as "ground zero in the Obama operation, the first couple's friend and consigliere."
Did Obama run the Benghazi decision not to send help past Jarrett that night?
We do know Obama had a face-to-face briefing from Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, early in the evening.
After dinner in his living quarters, Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed Iran and other issues in a two-hour phone call.
Present as the call was made, reports blogger Chip Jones at Conservative Report Online, was Valerie Jarrett, who, as the call was ending, went from the living quarters to the White House Situation Room, where the attack in Benghazi was being monitored by Dempsey, Panetta and other top-ranking officials.
What she may have said and whether the president sent her is unknown. We do know the president retired for the night, and no rescue mission was launched.
Once before, Jarrett had called off the military for political purposes. She may have done it that night as well — an action that would answer many questions and may be what the White House is really hiding.

Read the rest.  Interesting theory.

Did Obama Leak Information On Terror Threat & Hurt Intel Gathering In Process?

Not surprised he'd do something like this, but Richard Milhous Obama wants to scare us into accepting government surveillance of our phone and e-mail records (The Blaze).

According to a report from the Washington Times today, there are concerns within the intelligence community that the Obama administration disclosed too many details about purported Middle East terror threats and some of America’s sources and intel-gathering methods may now be compromised.  If this is the case, the Times notes, it may be more difficult to detect future threats:
Intelligence officials are dismayed that the administration provided so much detail on what prompted the [embassy] closings, and that the disclosures could work against obtaining new information. Militants are now likely searching for the sources of the information to both the U.S. and Yemeni officials, and almost certainly will kill anyone they suspect of working with Western intelligence.
“There simply are not that many who would know about the attacks,” says one former high-ranking U.S. intelligence officer, “so it won’t be hard for al Qaeda leaders to pin-point the sources of information. Once that happens, they certainly won’t be working with us anymore.”
Other sources are also likely to reconsider their relationship with the United States over the disclosures. “These guys know their lives are in danger. As soon as the U.S. shows we can’t be trusted, they will go under ground and we won’t hear from them again,” says a current intelligence officer. [...]

But of course, he has to look good, and especially before the Celebrity President goes on The Tonight Show.

RINO Mittens Romney--Don't Defund Obamacare

This is why Mittens "Romneycare" Romney not only was a bad candidate for the GOP to run last year, and why he lost an election that should have been easily won (Washington Times).

Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, doesn’t support the breakaway group of conservatives who are open to forcing a government shutdown to cut off funding for Obamacare.

Speaking at a fundraiser in New Hampshire for the state GOP in Wolfeboro, Mr. Romney said he wants to get rid of Obamacare and “stripping it of funds has appeal.”

“But we need to exercise great care about any talk of shutting down government,” Mr. Romney said at a fundraiser in New Hampshire for the state’s Republican Party, according to prepared remarks. “What would come next when soldiers aren’t paid, when seniors fear for their Medicare and Social Security, and when the FBI is off duty?”

The former Massachusetts governor said that the GOP has better options for removing Mr. Obama’s health care law.

“I’m afraid that in the final analysis, Obamacare would get its funding, our party would suffer in the next elections, and the people of the nation would not be happy,” he said. “I think there are better ways to remove Obamacare.”

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah is leading an effort on Capitol Hill that calls on lawmakers to shutdown the government before they support a spending proposal that includes funds for Obamacare.
You say there's better options than defunding Obamacare.  Well, name them, Mittens. What are they?  This is what's wrong with RINOs. They're always attacking conservatives for being willing to stand for something, but the RINOs never offer a solution.  Because they want big government as well, but just not as big as what the libs want.

Go back to the last quote from Mittens above and the first two words "I'm afraid." This is why Mitt Romney lost the election and why melting ice is more exciting that the GOP right now.  Because it is a party whose last two Presidential candidates and party leadership can be defined in one word--timid.

Are Nancy Pelosi or "Dingy" Harry Reid "timid?" No!  They come across as soft spoken, but vicious. Look at our leaders. McConnell is a guy who looks like he's about to fall asleep. Boehner is a crybaby lush, and Mittens Romney has about as much excitement as algore.

This is why Republicans will not win elections if they do not stand for something, and appear timid for the fear of being "too confrontational."  That didn't stop Ronald Reagan 30 years ago, from calling the Soviet Union an "evil empire" or telling Gorbachev "Tear down this wall," even when advisors were telling him not to say that.

That's leadership, having the backbone to call a spade a spade.  The Republican Party (with the exception of Cruz, Lee, Rand Paul, Sarah Palin) is content with acting like George McFly, letting Biff and his buddies kick him around in the high school hallway.
