Arizona Sheriff Implicates ATF, Holder and DOJ


Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu implicates the ATF, Eric Holder
and the Obama Justice Department as accomplices to murder involving weapons used in Operation Fast and Furious



Blog author's comments - Is Sheriff Babeu going to be one of only a few to talk about this? My understanding of operation 'Fast and Furious' was supposed to prove the administration knew who the bad guys were - legitimate gun dealers in the Southwest - and set out to make them the heavies in a phony sting operation.

The operation was to permit straw purchasers to complete the weapon's purchase and move them to Mexico, in order to build a bigger case against Mexican criminal organizations suspected of being the ultimate buyers. The guns were supposed to be tracked but many were not. As a result the government does not know who has many of these guns.

Attorney General Eric Holder has said that he and other higher-ups at the Justice Department were not aware of the operation as it was being carried out.

At least one American lawman is dead because of this program that put firearms into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. And, supposedly 200 or more Mexican police, soldiers and civilians have been killed.

Congressman Issa is calling for a special investigator. But, more Republicans need to speak out until the situation is resolved. The GOP should make 'Fast and Furious' a campaign issue.

Crony Capitalism - $737 Million To Pelosi's In-law


Crony Capitalism: $737 Million Green Jobs
Loan Given to Nancy Pelosi's Brother-In-Law

Weekly Standard - Despite the growing Solyndra scandal, yesterday the Department of Energy approved $1 billion in new loans to green energy companies -- including a $737 million loan guarantee to a company known as SolarReserve.

SolarReserve LLC, a closely held renewable energy developer, received a $737 million U.S. Energy Department loan guarantee to build a solar-thermal project in Nevada.

The 110-megawatt Crescent Dunes project, near Tonopah, Nevada, will use the sun’s heat to create steam that drives a turbine, the agency said today in a e-mailed statement. SolarReserve is based in Santa Monica, California.

On SolarReserve's website is a list of "investment partners," including the "PCG Clean Energy & Technology Fund (East) LLC." As blogger American Glob quickly discovered, PCG's number two is none other than "Ronald Pelosi, a San Francisco political insider and financial industry polymath who happens to be the brother-in-law of Nancy Pelosi, the Minority Leader of the United States House of Representatives."

But wait...there's more! One of SolarReserve's other investment partners is Argonaut Private Equity: Steve Mitchell and Argonaut Private Equity might have a chance to recoup some of their losses in the Solyndra debacle now that the Department of Energy has given a $737 million dollar loan guarantee to a company backed by Argonaut that also lists Mitchell among its board of directors. - Keep reading...

Blog author's comments - When are we going to rise up against our corrupt government, at what point is enough? How is it that these criminals keep getting away with this? Does anyone wonder why our government is so deeply in debt and why Obama wants and needs more tax dollars?

This is the most corrupt regime to ever enter the White House, it is pure and simple Chicago Politics. It’s clear now that they’re going to steal as much as possible until they leave. Apparently they’re not even trying to hide it anymore.

Typically - Washington is well versed in suppressing stories likes this. What’s sad is that the GOP is too timid to attempt to prosecute them.

Obama has to be defeated and anyone within his regime who can be ousted has got to go. The election of 2012 cannot come soon enough.

Surface-To-Air Missles In Libya Are Missing


Nightmare in Libya: 20,000 Surface-to-Air Missiles Missing

ABC News - U.S. officials had once thought there was little chance that terrorists could get their hands on many of the portable surface-to-air missiles that can bring down a commercial jet liner.

But now that calculation is out the window, with officials at a recent secret White House meeting reporting that thousands of them have gone missing in Libya.

"Matching up a terrorist with a shoulder-fired missile, that's our worst nightmare," said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D.-California, a member of the Senate's Commerce, Energy and Transportation Committee.

The nightmare has been made real with the discovery in Libya that an estimated 20,000 portable, heat-seeking missiles have gone missing from unguarded Army weapons warehouses.

The missiles, four to six-feet long and Russian-made, can weigh just 55 pounds with launcher. They lock on to the heat generated by the engines of aircraft, can be fired from a vehicle or from a combatant's shoulder, and are accurate and deadly at a range of more than two miles.

The ease with which rebels and other unknown parties have snatched thousands of the missiles has raised alarms that the weapons could end up in the hands of al Qaeda, which is active in Libya.

Peter Bouckaert of Human Rights Watch first warned about the problem after a trip to Libya months ago. He took pictures of pickup truckloads of the missiles being carted off during another trip just a few weeks ago.


Blog author's comments - This could be a real "nightmare." And, a definite terrorism game changer.

There have been reports that units attached to Iran's Revolutionary Guards force have seized many of the surface-to-air missiles from Libya and smuggled them across the border into Sudan.

White House spokesman Jay Carney downplayed concerns about the missing missiles. “We have … worked closely with the Libyan rebel leaders as well as NATO in investigating and dealing with the issue of conventional weapons in Libya … we are exploring every option to expand our support.”

I don't believe the statement from Carney will help the current situation.

Ernest The Cat Has His Sight Restored

Purr-fect vision! Almost-blind cat Ernest has his
life transformed by wearing contact lenses

Most contact lens wearers have had trouble putting them in their eyes at some point - so the idea of putting them on a cat might seem ridiculous.

But that is exactly what the owners of Earnest - a 15 year old black and white cat - have found themselves doing.

And from these pictures the elderly cat looks like he has plenty to purr about after the lenses have transformed him from a squinting cat unable to see where he was going.


What a sight: Ernest the Cat has his contact lenses put in.

The contact lenses, fitted by a vet, have saved Ernest from a life-threatening operation. The old pet, suffers from entropion - an inward rolling of the eyelids, which causes inflammation and hinders sight.

He has lived at the RSPCA rescue center in Godshill, Isle of Wight, for 13 years after he was injured in a car accident.


"I see you now": RSPCA Center resident staff cat
Ernest looks happy with his new lease of sight.

Center manager Paula Sadler, 56 said: "Before Ernest was given the contact lenses he was quite squinty and had trouble seeing where he was going." "Now his eyes have opened up and he has a new lease of life."

"Given his old age it would have been very risky giving him an operation because there is no telling how he would have reacted to the anesthetic." "The lenses have worked wonders."


Purr-fect: Staff cat Earnest enjoys a cuddle with animal
care assistant Kay Spicer after having the lenses fitted.


Blog author's comments - As one who is very fond of cats, I thought the story was interesting. The disease Ernest has can also be quite painful. Ernest is now much more comfortable and the lenses have turned him from a special feline that could barely see to one who now has very good sight. They also have removed his pain. The lenses are removed and cleaned by the staff every three weeks.

At the animal shelter where Ernest lives and is cared for, they always used him to test new dogs brought to them to see if they were scared of cats because Ernest was never fazed by the dogs. Since he has good sight they say he is now much more wary of the dogs because he can actually see them.

Will Chris Christie Run For President In 2012?


Chris Christie back in spotlight as Perry sags

Politico - With the party’s front-runner sagging, Chris Christie is reconsidering pleas from Republican elites and donors to run for president in 2012, two Republican sources told POLITICO.

The New Jersey governor has indicated he is listening to big-money backers and Republican influence-makers, and will let them know in roughly a week whether he has moved off his threat-of-suicide vow to stay on the sidelines of a presidential race that remains amorphous heading into the fall, the two sources said.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry's candidacy has failed to clear a basic bar with elites and some donors, and his shoddy debate performance in Orlando has only highlighted the window for someone who Republicans searching for a Mitt Romney alternative can rally around.

Christie’s potential candidacy has been an increasingly fevered fantasy of a certain cadre of some media and business elites — mostly based in New York, with a smattering of California technology and entertainment players — since last summer. That’s when he showed up at a Sun Valley conference hosted by the investment banker Allen and Co. and wowed the crowd, including Rupert Murdoch, with what many in attendance described as a nimble mind and a speaking style that was both articulate and blunt-spoken.

But after months of going out of his way to end the speculation, Christie started indicating he would at least think about getting in.

Blog author's comments - Chris Christie has indicated he is at least listening to some influential Republicans who want him to join the race for the nomination. I remain doubtful that he will run but, overrall unhappiness with the current slate of GOP candidates has driven talk of Christie getting into the race.

Christie, and those close to him, have maintained that his entering the race is not going to happen. But several reports this weekend suggested Christie might be giving a campaign for president a second thought. A handful of news organizations reported Saturday that he could make an announcement this week.

The party has yet to get excited about a Romney candidacy and Perry's debate performances have left some in the GOP looking elsewhere. We shall see. The bottom line is that Obama must be defeated in 2012.

GOP Rep. Joe Walsh - The Media Protect Obama


Rep. Joe Walsh: Media protect
Obama because he is black, liberal

The Hill - Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) said the media protect President Obama and will work to get him reelected because he is black.

“This guy pushed every one of the media’s buttons,” Walsh said in an interview with the Media Research Center. “He was liberal, he was different, he was new, he was black. Oh my God, it was the potpourri of everything.”

Walsh was responding to a question from Media Research Center President Brent Bozell about the “race warfare games” of the Obama administration.

“They are so vested in our first black president not being a failure that it’s going to be amazing to watch the lengths they go to protect him,” Walsh said. “They, I believe, will spout this racist line if some of their colleagues up here aren’t doing it aggressively enough. There is going to be a real desperation.”

Video of interview here.

Blog author's comments - Prior to the 2008 election the MSM issued glowing reports of Obama's intellect and ability. He was portrayed as the savior of our country. His campaign committee of left-wing journalists has continually provided cover for him. They do not want him to fail.

I don't think that Obama believes he will be seriously challenged. He is hoping to run against someone who is afraid to speak the truth and be labeled a racist. This is not the type of candidate the Republican Party can have in 2012. This is a must win election for the GOP and the country.

Maxine Waters Urges Obama To Fight Republicans


Rep. Waters urges Obama to drop
nice-guy act and fight Republicans, Tea Party

The Hill - It’s time for President Obama to quit watching sports and drinking beer with his political opponents in the hope it will lead to a bipartisan agreement, Rep. Maxine Waters said Thursday.

The outspoken California Democrat said Obama needs to fight harder against the GOP and Tea Party and for Democratic policy priorities.

“He's been very nice about it,” Waters said of Obama’s budget negotiations with Republicans.

“He's been on the other side of the aisle talking with people. He's invited them up to the White House to have beer. He's invited them to come and watch the Super Bowl games.

“He's done all of that, and when they eat his food and drink his beer and leave, then they go and try to kill him [on Capitol Hill],” she told an audience gathered for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual legislative conference in Washington.

“You've gotta fight – you will not win this battle without fighting,” she added. - Continue reading...

Blog author's comments - Obama invited republicans for a beer? And here I though he was a bad guy for trying to rip this country to pieces.

Maxine, he really isn’t extending these invites for any reason than for appearances. As for trying "to kill him"…he may anger many people, but he is alive and well…we just hope to vote the loser out of office.

It wouldn’t occur to Waters that he may be incompetent, or his policies are bad - not a chance. This pathetic woman is another shining example of what’s wrong with this country. The Democrat Party must be defeated so our country is able to survive.

Democrat Elizabeth Warren And Class Warfare


Elizabeth Warren On Class Warfare

The Blaze - Former White House financial reform adviser Elizabeth Warren, who is now seeking to challenge Republican Senator Scott Brown in Massachusetts, is definitely not shy in voicing her views on class warfare — or, according to Warren, the lack thereof.

In a recent appearance captured on video, Warren, who is perhaps best known for helping to launch the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, stated boldly that there is no such thing as class warfare and that there is “nobody in this country who got rich on his own.” - Continue reading...



Blog author's comments - And the goal of the Democrats is that nobody ever becomes rich again. Elizabeth Warren embodies the liberal mindset of the Democratic Party.

Obama's proposal to have the wealthy pay even more taxes is not Class Warfare? This is a political warm-up for the 2012 election campaign. He is attempting to show his base that he represents Middle America. So now I must assume that the Democrats attempt at victory in the coming elections is the use of the Class Warfare game.

They will have the 'State Run Media' repeating it over and over and that will be the reason for the failed economy, unemployment being over 9%, the housing market tanking, no jobs being created and the growing deficit.

All of the above would have nothing to do with Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the Democratic Party could it? If we were all as intelligent as Obama and the rest of the liberals we would realize this.

From what I have noticed of Scott Brown since he was elected to a seat as a Republican Senator...she probably has a decent chance of defeating him.

No Surprise - Obama Wants To Raise Taxes


Obama Unveils Deficit Plan Containing $1.5 Trillion in Tax Hikes

Fox News - WASHINGTON – President Obama, drawing immediate condemnation from congressional Republicans, unveiled a new deficit reduction plan Monday anchored by $1.5 trillion in new taxes, including an end to Bush-era rates for upper income earners making $250,000 or more and additional taxes on millionaires.

Keying in on a populist message that millionaires and billionaires should pay more in taxes than their secretaries, the president announced a plan in the Rose Garden that includes more than $2 trillion total in entitlement cuts and tax increases over the next decade.

Together with spending cuts enacted last month and projected savings from interest payments, the savings in the president's plan total more than $3 trillion. The Obama administration is also adding on another $1 trillion in savings over 10 years from winding down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, though that kind of accounting has been dismissed in past debates as a gimmick.

The $4 trillion effort is tied to his American Jobs Act, aimed at putting nearly 14 million unemployed back to work. Critics have stated that targeting job creators -- the top 1 percent pays 38 percent of the tax burden, according to 2008 estimates -- won't help the jobless find employment.

House Speaker John Boehner last week warned that tax hikes should be off the table as a newly formed bipartisan committee meets to extract long-term deficit savings. - Continue reading...

Blog author's comments - Obama's jobs bill will not produce new jobs or help grow the economy. Now he plays the class warfare game with his deficit reduction plan. Does he believe this will save him in 2012?

When he announced the plan for his jobs bill he repeatedly said it must be passed right away. The Democrat controlled Senate does not have it on their calendar until some time in October. I don't believe they want any part of it either.

He told everyone he wanted to raise taxes while he was campaigning in 2008. This is the reason businesses pulled back and unemployment started to rise. But he and his regime continued to blame Bush for the problems they created during his first two years in office when the Democrats also controlled the House.

My hope is that enough voters now understand that he has been a dreadful mistake for our country and will remove him in 2012. Whatever he attempts to do now will not help the economy. Most businesses will continue to sit on their money and wait for the outcome of the 2012 election.

For the private sector to grow and private sector jobs to be created and Obama's tax plan to happen at the same time, is not possible.

Willow - The Cat Missing For Five Years Is Found


Lost 5 Years, a Colorado Cat Finds Her Way to Manhattan

NY Times - A calico cat named Willow, who disappeared from a home near the Rocky Mountains five years ago, was found on Wednesday on a Manhattan street and will soon be returned to her family, where two of the three children and one of the two dogs may remember her.

How she got to New York, more than 1,800 miles away, and the kind of life she lived in the city are mysteries.

But thanks to a microchip that was implanted when she was a kitten, Willow will be reunited in Boulder, Colo., with her owners, the Squireses, who had long ago given up hope.

“There are tons of coyotes around here, and owls,” Jamie Squires said. “We put out the ‘lost cat’ posters and the Craigslist thing, but we actually thought she’d been eaten by coyotes.”

Ms. Squires said she and her husband, Chris, were shocked when they received a call about Willow on Wednesday from Animal Care and Control, which runs New York City’s animal rescue and shelter system. Ms. Squires said that when they saw a picture of the cat, they knew it was Willow.

Willow was found on East 20th Street by a man who took her to a shelter, and Julie Bank, executive director of Animal Care, said the microchip led to the Squires family.

“All our pets are microchipped,” Ms. Squires said. “If I could microchip my kids, I would.”

The Squires children are 17, 10 and 3, and they have a yellow Labrador named Roscoe, who knew Willow, and an English mastiff named Zoe.

Ms. Squires said Willow escaped in late 2006 or early 2007 when contractors left a door open during a home renovation.

Ms. Bank said Willow was healthy and well-mannered, and probably had not spent her life on the streets of Manhattan.

Animal Care and the Squireses were trying to arrange for transportation back to Colorado. In the interim, Willow may stay with a foster family in New York.

“The kids can’t wait to see her,” Ms. Squires said. “And we still have her little Christmas stocking.”

Blog author's comments - This was the best news I have seen for quite a while. I suppose that no one will ever know how Willow survived for five years or how she traveled from Colorado to New York. Only Willow knows and from what I have heard she is not telling anyone.

It's great that Willow will now be back with her family. Cats are special beings. I know this from first hand knowledge and experience. We adopted our cat when he was approximately one year old from one of our local animal shelters. He lived to be 19 years old before we were forced to have him put to sleep. He was one of the very special beings in my life. I will always miss him.

The following is a quote attributed to Mark Twain: "If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat." I believe this to be a very true statement.

Obama - Tells Us To Pay Our Fair Share


Obama: Americans must pay fair share to cut deficit

Reuters - President Barack Obama said on Saturday that Americans need to be ready to "pay their fair share" to narrow the deficit, previewing his proposals to Congress that are expected to include more taxes on the rich.

In his weekly radio and video address, the Democrat said his $447 billion jobs plan that features tax breaks for workers and small businesses, plus funds for public works projects and schools, "will not add to the deficit. It will be paid for."

"On Monday, I'll lay out my plan for how we'll do that -- how we'll pay for this plan and pay down our debt by following some basic principles: making sure we live within our means and asking everyone to pay their fair share."

Obama has repeatedly argued for the wealthiest Americans to face higher taxes with fewer loopholes and exceptions as part of the effort to ensure the U.S. debtload remains in control.

Republicans, who have raised the volume on Washington's fiscal problems as the November 2012 presidential election nears, see higher taxes on the wealthy as a problem for jobs, given that entrepreneurs and companies would be strongly affected.
Continue reading...

Blog author's comments - Will someone in the media ask the President to explicitly define “fair share”? I doubt that we will receive a clear answer. Obama's Jobs Bill should be dead in the House, and I doubt that it will pass in the Senate.

This whole facade is a campaign stunt. He must be out of the White House in 2013. I pity the Republicans who inherit this mess that Obama and his party have created.

Waxman - Greedy Jews Vote To Protect Wealth


Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CCA) told reporters that Jews vote Republican because they want to keep their wealth

(Taken in part from) The Hill - The Democratic loss in New York’s special election on Tuesday has been seen as a sign of political and policy problems for President Obama and his party heading into next year’s election.

Democrats have held former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-N.Y.) district since it was created in 1922 but Republican candidate Bob Turner captured the seat.

The race for the seat won by Turner in New York might point to another trend: a softening in Obama support from the Jewish community, which strongly backed him in 2008. The district has one of the largest Orthodox Jewish communities in the country.

Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), a prominent Jewish congressman, said the Jewish vote is a concern for his party.

“I think Jewish voters will be Democratic and be for Obama in 2012, especially if you get a Republican candidate like [Texas] Gov. [Rick] Perry,” he said. “But there’s no question the Jewish community is much more bipartisan than it has been in previous years. There are Jews who are trending toward the Republican Party, some of it because of their misunderstanding of Obama’s policies in the Middle East, and some of it, quite frankly, for economic reasons. They feel they want to protect their wealth, which is why a lot of well-off voters vote for Republicans.”

Blog author's comments - Because Henry Waxman is Jewish does that make him an expert on his fellow Jews? I am not Jewish but I also want to protect my 'wealth'.

Anybody who has any savings, investments, retirement funds, or a house, would like to protect them. But, I guess according to Waxman it’s greedy of us to want to protect any wealth we have accumulated. Waxman, always a reliable spokesman for the lunatic left.

Sorry to be just like the conservative Jews you attempted to slander, but I think I have a right to what I have earned. I believe that the Jews you talk about are also entitled to vote for whomever they want.

I don't think there is a misunderstanding of Obama’s policies in the Middle East. I believe I know a little about what he is doing there, with his support of what has happened in both Egypt and Libya, and his call for Israel to withdraw to the 1967 borders.

Henry Waxman...another Democrat our country would be so much better without.

Obama - Pushes Jobs Plan And Amnesty For Illegals


Obama Renews Call for Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

CNS News - WASHINGTON (AP) — Courting Hispanics while promoting his new jobs plan, President Barack Obama on Wednesday told a black-tie Latino audience that his $447 billion package of tax cuts and public works spending would put more money in the pockets of Latino workers and business owners and increase opportunities for Hispanics.

The president made his pitch to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute's 34th Annual Awards Gala. The event is part of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Addressing an important constituency both in the voting population and in Congress, the president kept up his vigorous public relations campaign for his economic measures while also beseeching the crowd to help him pass his education and immigration agenda.

"Lift up your voices," he told an audience that included Princess Cristina of Spain and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. "Make yourselves heard."

Obama's economic plan, the administration's top priority, received polite applause from the crowd. People saved their loudest approval for the president's assurance that he remained determined to pass a rewrite of the nation's immigration laws to offer a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants.

Blaming Republican resistance, he said: "It's been a long and frustrating road for all of us". - Continue reading...

Blog author's comments - Obama and the Democrats never give up do they? They must be removed from office so they cannot continue trying to destroy what’s left of this nation.

Obama sees the illegals as Democrat Party voters and the sooner the better for him.

He asked his audience to lift up their voices, but yet the Tea Party lifted their voices and have been called unpatriotic, terrorists, extremists etc.

I wonder how many votes he thinks this speech will buy him. Obama said to them "make yourselves heard.” Spoken like a true community organizer. Of course we will hear that anyone who opposes amnesty is a racist.

Obama: If You Love Me Help Pass My Jobs Bill



Obama: If you love me, ask Congress to pass my jobs bill

CBS News - President Obama continued pushing his jobs bill in battleground states on Wednesday, telling a fired-up crowd of students at North Carolina State University that, "If you love me, you've got to help me pass this bill!"

Mr. Obama, speaking to a crowd of more than 9,000 people in an unairconditioned auditorium, reiterated the main points of his recently-unveiled American Jobs Act, and urged students to help him get it passed through Congress.

"For those of you who did skip class today, I've got a homework assignment for you," he said, "tell your Congress person that the time for gridlock and games is over; the time for action is now."

The president touted a series of proposals in the bill that he said would help America "get back to a place where we're creating good, middle-class jobs again."

"Jobs that pay well; jobs that offer some security... I know that's what the students are thinking about," he said. "And we can do that if we can finally get Washington to act. If we can get folks to stop worrying so much about their jobs and start worrying a little more about your jobs."

"We know what's right: We know what we've got to do to create jobs right now," he continued, to enthusiastic applause, "We've got to give workers new skills for new jobs."- Continue reading...

Blog author's comments - Obama, if you cared for the people you would resign. You are in way over your head. After listening to the video, this has to be one of the most pathetic things said by an American president.

Obama also said - "If we can get folks to stop worrying so much about their jobs and start worrying a little more about your jobs." To that I must say he appears to be desperately worried about his own job.

The only way the economy will begin to turn around, jobs created and the unemployment numbers drop is when Obama is unemployed and living somewhere other than the White House.

To save our country he has to be removed from office in 2012.

Democrats Want To Abolish Debt Ceiling


House Dems introduce bill to eliminate debt ceiling

The Hill - Three congressional Democrats are introducing a bill Wednesday that would abolish the federal debt ceiling. The lawmakers say that the recent debate to raise the ceiling and avoid default had a "disastrous" effect on the U.S economy, and that the legislation would keep parties from using a potential default as a hostage in future budget debates.

"The debt ceiling is truly arbitrary and has nothing to do with the deficit," Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said in a statement last Wednesday. "The debt ceiling does not prevent the United States from incurring new debts. That occurs when Congress decides to authorize more spending than revenues. The debt ceiling prevents the president from borrowing money to pay those debts when they come due."

Virginia Democrat Jim Moran and Georgia Democrat Hank Johnson will join Nadler in introducing the legislation. But the bill is unlikely to gain traction, especially in the Republican-controlled House. Members of the GOP were encouraged that they were able to use the debt ceiling as leverage to attain deep budget cuts during negotiations with President Obama and the Senate. - Continue reading...

Blog author's comments - This bill will be dead on arrival in the House. What else can we expect from the Democrat Party? Obama already has us well on the road to ruin.

But, don't believe they are out of tricks. They are out of ideas that have credibility but that is when they try to fabricate a crisis, much like this so-called jobs bill which would help Obama payoff his union supporters.

They know the American Jobs Act is not going to pass as it is currently being presented, but Obama will be visible every day campaigning against the 'Tea Party Extremists' that don’t want to see America succeed.

Borrowing money does not cause you to go into debt? What does then? When I believe there is nothing the Democrats could do which would surprise me - they will now introduce a bill to attempt to eliminate the debt ceiling.

Obama Wants Tax Hikes To Pay For His Jobs Bill


Obama proposes tax hikes on wealthy to pay for $447B jobs bill

The Hill - The White House said Monday that President Obama wants to pay for his $447 billion jobs bill by raising taxes on the wealthy and businesses.

Jack Lew, director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), said the tax hikes would pay for Obama’s entire bill, which the administration is sending to Congress Monday evening.

The chief provision announced by Lew would be to limit itemized deductions for individuals who make more than $200,000 a year and families that make more than $250,000, something the Obama administration has previously pushed to do through its budget proposals. Lew told reporters at the White House press briefing that this would raise about $400 billion.

The administration would tax the income investment fund managers make, known as “carried interest,” as regular income instead of as capital gains, which has a low 15 percent tax rate. This is another longstanding administration goal that has been resisted by Wall Street as well as some Democrats.

The administration estimates the capital gains change would provide $18 billion in revenue.

The administration also wants to eliminate tax breaks for the oil-and-gas sector, which would raise $40 billion, the administration said.

Another $3 billion would come from changing the way corporate jets depreciate. With a few other revenue increases, Lew indicated the total measures proposed by the administration would bring in $467 billion, $20 billion more than the cost of the bill.

Blog author's comments - Obama admitted months ago "You don’t raise taxes in a recession." I guess he forgot what he said. Looks like another one of those buy now pay over the next ten years kind of deals.

Obama said during his speech last week - "I am sending this Congress a plan that you should pass right away. It’s called the American Jobs Act. There should be nothing controversial about this piece of legislation. Everything in here is the kind of proposal that’s been supported by both Democrats and Republicans – including many who sit here tonight. And everything in this bill will be paid for."

Well, apparently not everything, he is proposing a tax hike to pay for his economy saving bill. More magic math out of the White House.

The Democrats are very consistent; they are always in favor of raising taxes, cutting defense spending and raising entitlement spending.

Obama - Says We Have A Right To Be Frustrated


Obama to voters: 'You have every right to be frustrated'

USA Today - RICHMOND, Va. -- President Obama came to the capital of Virginia Friday to campaign against the political culture of Washington while promoting his brand new $447 billion plan to boost the economy and create jobs.

"You have every right to be frustrated," Obama told a friendly crowd at the University of Richmond, asking them to help pressure Congress to pass the package of tax cuts, construction projects and unemployment assistance known as the American Jobs Bill.

"I want you to call, I want you to e-mail, I want you to tweet," Obama said as the crowed cheered. "I want you to fax, I want you to visit, I want you to Facebook ... Send a carrier pigeon."

Echoing a mantra he used during last night's address to a joint session of Congress, Obama said: "Pass this bill now -- let's put folks to work."

In his own effort to pressure Congress, Obama said the items in his jobs package have in the past received support from both Democrats and Republicans -- a message aimed mostly at his Republican rivals. "Nothing radical in this bill," he said.

The president also repeated complaints against Washington politics that he made during the summer debate over raising the nation's $14.3 trillion debt ceiling. He told the appreciative crowd that it's time for Congress to "stop the political circus and actually do something to help people."- Entire column...



Blog author's comments - Has anybody actually seen this new legislation? Has it even been written yet? This guy is good at reading from his teleprompter. Submitting actual legislation? Not so much.

He told his audience “you have every right to be frustrated" -- he means at big business, at George W. Bush, at Congress, at the Republicans. But, nothing is Obama's fault.

The only way the economy can begin to improve is when Obama is voted out of the White House. Anyone paying attention the last three years should not be buying what Obama is saying. I have seen this over and over and it is getting very old. But, that's all he's got!

One question – how did the previous $787 billion he spent work out? So let me make sure I am clear on this. A plan almost twice this size did absolutely nothing, but this plan will save the economy?

He is attempting to setup the GOP controlled House so they are the ones who are responsible for his failure as a president. Obama had control of the House and Senate for two years. Most of us realize what he did during that time.

Obama - Pass This Jobs Plan Right Away

A small portion of President Obama's speech to the Joint Session of Congress on Thursday Night.

Obama: The purpose of the American Jobs Act is simple, to put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of those who are working.

It will provide a jolt to an economy that has stalled, and give companies confidence that if they invest and hire, there will be customers for their products and services.




Charles Krauthammer on Obama's "Jobs" Plan:
This isn't a jobs plan - It's a set-up



Transcript: President Obama's jobs speech.

According to the Daily Caller, Obama used a variation of the phrase 'pass this bill' 17 times in his jobs speech.
Blog author's comments - So now Obama wants to spend an additional $447 Billion on his 'Jobs Plan' and if the GOP controlled House does not pass this bill immediately he will attempt to dump all of his failed policies on the backs of the Republicans.

If this bill is not passed we will hear from now until the election of 2012 that his 'Jobs Plan' would have solved all of the country's problems if only the House Republicans would have listened to him.

The Republican Party must hold the line and do whatever it takes to defeat him. The only way the economy and jobs will be created is when Obama losses his job. This speech was, of course, a waste of air time as usual. 2012 can’t come soon enough.

He’s recycling the same failed ideas because he’s too inept to understand anything else. Now he wants bipartisanship, but did he talk to anyone on the other side prior to this speech? We would like to see his plan in it's entirety...on paper, with everything in his plan itemized. Until the Republicans see this they should ignore him.

Gingrich Challenges Biased Questions At Debate

Newt Gingrich Goes After Debate Moderator
John Harris for Biased Questioning

Newsbusters - For reasons that are still inexplicable, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library agreed to partner up with NBC News, parent organization of the uber-left-wing network MSNBC to televise Wednesday's Republican presidential debate.

While NBC representative Brian Williams had more than his share of sneering biased questions, it was Williams's co-moderator, Politico editor John F. Harris who laid on the snark in his attempts to bait and attack the candidates.

Such unbalanced questioning is par-for-the-course for Republicans competing at the national level. More often than not, they take it in stride.

Last night, though, Newt Gingrich was having none of it as he went full-on after Harris's attempts to insert Gingrich into a non-existent debate about an individual mandate to purchase insurance at the national level that Republicans simply are not having.



Blog author's comments - I knew what to expect at the GOP debate last night. Why do Republicans agree to have a debate and be questioned by a bunch of liberal hacks? They have only one goal which is to attempt to make the Republicans look bad so they can help secure a victory and second term for Barack Hussein Obama.

Obama has without a doubt shown that he will go down in history as the worst, most inept President of our country.

Newt Gingrich who I believe to be a highly intelligent man but, who probably has no chance at being elected president, was one of the highlights of the debate.

The entire presentation was setup as an exercise in Obama protectionism. Newt did not let it stop him. I would pay to see an actual one-on-one debate between Newt Gingrich and Barack Obama. I know who is the most intelligent, most knowledgeable of the two. Obama would have no chance.

ACLU To Challenge Welfare Drug Testing Law


ACLU Plans Lawsuit Over Welfare Drug Tests

Miami News - The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida plans to challenge the state's law requiring new welfare recipients to pass a drug test.

An ACLU spokesman told The Associated Press Wednesday the lawsuit is being filed on behalf of a 35-year-old Orlando man, Luis Lebron.

The spokesman says Florida's drug testing law is unconstitutional, saying it violates the Fourth Amendment's search and seizure protections.

No further details of the lawsuit were immediately available.

Gov. Rick Scott signed the drug testing bill into law in July. Under the law, welfare applicants must pay for the drug tests. If they pass, they'll get reimbursed. If they fail, they can't get benefits for at least a year, and could face child abuse charges.

Blog author's comments - Is it fair that the worker who pays for the welfare via his taxes has to pass a drug test to be hired but, the person who gets the free money doesn’t?

This is not unlawful search and seizure. If you don’t want to take the test, don’t apply for welfare! It is the applicants themselves that are initiating the action. This is simply a condition for receiving taxpayer funds. Welfare programs in general need a complete overhaul.

Palin Condems Union Thuggery By Teamsters Boss


Palin calls out Hoffa's 'thuggery'
for his 'sons of bitches' remarks

Daily Caller - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is calling out the “thuggery” of Teamsters union President Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., who on Monday described tea partiers and congressional Republicans as “sons of bitches” and called for a war against them.
“Please don’t be taken in by union bosses’ thuggery like Jim Hoffa represented yesterday,” Palin wrote in a message posted on her Facebook on Tuesday.

“Union bosses like this do not have your best interests at heart,” she wrote. “What they care about is their own power and re-electing their friend Barack Obama so he will take care of them to the detriment of everyone else.”

Palin’s comments come in response to remarks Hoffa made before Obama's Labor Day address in front of union workers in Detroit. Hoffa riled up the audience by saying: “’President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these sons of bitches out and take America back to where we belong … We gotta keep an eye on the battle that we face, a war on workers, and you see it everywhere in the tea party.” - Keep reading...

Blog author's comments - Oh yes, it's going to be a brutal battle from now until the election of 2012. Let's hope the Republican Party is ready to fight for what must be a big victory for the GOP and America.

Once again it seems as if Sarah Palin is one of the few who will speak out against what has and will continue to go on as long as Obama occupies the White House and the Democrat Party is in power. The comment by Hoffa is all you need to know about unions.

Despite President Obama’s repeated claims to change the tone in Washington, the White House had no comment on Teamsters Union leader James Hoffa's comments.


Anyone surprised that neither the head of the DNC Wasserman Schultz or the White House had any comment on what Hoffa said referring to the Tea Party and Republicans during his warm up to the Obama speech..."let's take these sons of bitches out"?

Obama - I Saved You From Economic Disaster


Obama: I 'pulled our country back from the brink'

Washington Examiner - In his Labor Day message to the nation, President Obama credits himself and his administration with having "pulled our country back from the brink" of economic disaster.

"In the last several years, we have pulled our country back from the brink, through a series of tough economic decisions," Obama writes. "While we have come far, great challenges still face us."

According to the Labor Department, the national unemployment rate stood at 7.6 percent when Obama inherited a faltering economy from George W. Bush in January 2009. Unemployment rose to 10.2 percent by October 2009, and, with the exception of February and March 2011, it has been at 9 percent or higher ever since. It was 9.1 percent in August -- a month in which the economy created no new jobs. In addition, economic growth has slowed nearly to zero, raising fears that the country is entering another recession.

Obama's Labor Day message is mostly a tribute to organized labor, one of the president's key political supporters in 2008 and a major player in his re-election plans. "The right to organize and collectively bargain is a fundamental American value," Obama writes. "This year has seen a vigorous fight to protect these rights and values, and on this Labor Day, we reaffirm that collective bargaining is a cornerstone of the American dream." - Entire column...

Blog author's comments - If he pulled us back from the brink, where does he think we are now? Does he actually believe this? Obama is a legend in his own mind. Economically he pushed us over the cliff.

He continues to spread his lies with hope that the 'Sheeple' voters will give him another four years to complete what he has set out to do to our country. He really thinks a lot about himself and the disasters he has inflicted on Americans.

His record speaks for him. We must stop Obama and begin to reverse what he has done via the election in 2012.

Obama Is President Zero

Charles Krauthammer: Obama Is "President
Zero - zero economic expansion, zero jobs,
zero ideas on how to cure the economy.”



Blog author's comments - Sometimes Krauthammer gets it correct. But, let's hope since the mistake in 2008, many more voters now realize this and will vote accordingly in 2012.

It will still be an uphill battle even with all that Obama has done to bring the economy and our country down. The MSM has already started the lies and taking what Gov. Rick Perry says out of context in an attempt to hamper his chance for the nomination.

I assume at this point in time they feel he is the GOP candidate which they should fear the most. They will do their best to help Obama win a second term.

I expect this behavior from most of the media but what is difficult to fathom is the fact that so many people still believe what Obama tells them and continue to back him after the disaster he has been during his first three years in office.

Obama To Unveil Jobs Plan - But Not All Of It


White House Hints at More
Economic Speeches, Proposals Ahead

Fox News - In what could be a way of lowering expectations for next Thursday's big economic speech, aides to President Obama are privately spreading word that he will not present his entire jobs plan in his address to a Joint Session of Congress.

Aides say Thursday's speech will be part of a bigger plan the White House will roll out throughout the fall with the president hitting the road for speeches and town hall appearances. Aides have already confirmed that Obama will be traveling to California, Colorado, and Washington state for one three-day swing later this month that will include economic events as well as some fundraising.

The move could be a way to try and lower the stakes for Thursday's Joint Session appearance, but it could also be an attempt by the administration to show the president is trying to stay all over the economy heading into what will likely be an uphill re-election battle.

"There's no question the president will want to keep returning to jobs," one top aide told Fox News. "I don't want to downplay the speech [next week] -- it's going to be substantial. But the idea that this is the be-all and end-all is wrong."One scenario being discussed by White House aides is the president highlighting individual economic proposals at appearances around the country throughout the fall. - Entire column...

Blog author's comments - Obama will unveil his plan for the dire economic problems the country faces but not all of it. Why the Joint Session of Congress if this is just a big nothing? He continues to play games.

Obama's team will come up with the rest of the plan later when more focus group information and polling data comes in. Republican Senator Jim DeMint said it best, "Look, if Obama has a jobs proposal put it in writing and give us a cost estimate, send it up here. I want to read the bill. I don't want to listen to talking points off a teleprompter."

"Aides have already confirmed that Obama will be traveling to California, Colorado, and Washington State for one three-day swing later this month that will include economic events as well as some fundraising."

So the speech will be the official kick off of his campaign? There will never be an economic recovery as long as Obama is the President.

Dick Cheney - Tea Party Put Some Spine In GOP


Cheney: Tea Party Finally Gave GOP Backbone

CNBC - The Tea Party had a significant impact on putting “some spine” into the backs of Congressional Republicans during the debt ceiling debate, former Vice President Dick Cheney told Larry Kudlow Wednesday.

The threat to not raise the debt ceiling was controversial, he said, but it was effectively used to force the Obama administration to sign onto some significant reduction measures.

Republicans advocate bringing the deficit under control by reducing spending and what they see as excessive government programs, while Democrats advocate some spending cuts along with revenue increase in the form of higher taxes.

“I don’t think we would have gotten as far as we have without them sort of holding the feet to the fire of members of Congress,” Cheney said. - Entire column...

Blog author's comments - I have much respect for former VP Dick Chaney. I also think Cheney is correct concerning the Tea Party movement.

But, the problem still exists that many of the 'old guard' career GOP politicians still do not like the Tea Party and would rather back a presidential candidate in 2012 that does not support the Tea Party or is associated with it. Sometimes I don't believe they understand that the election of 2012 is a must win for the GOP and the country.

They don't seem to realize or will not admit the Tea Party played a large role in the big win for the Republican Party in the midterm elections.

I remember how dark things were for Republicans after Obama was elected. At that time not many on the right would have expected that the GOP could have regained control of the House and picked up Senate seats at the midterm.

Obama will always have his hard core base and the majority of the black vote but hopefully enough voters have seen what a disaster Obama has been for this country.
