Obama: America's Gone 'Soft'
"I mean, there are a lot of things we can do," Obama said. "The way I think about it is, you know, this is a great, great country that had gotten a little soft and, you know, we didn't have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades. We need to get back on track."
State Gets $5 Mil Bonus For Food Stamp Sign Up
This week Oregon officials bragged that the USDA has given the state $5 million in “performance bonuses” for ensuring that people eligible for food benefits receive them and for its “swift processing of applications.” The money comes on the heels of a separate $1.5 million award from the feds for making “accurate payments of food stamp benefits to clients.” So welfare recipients are clients? .
Liberals Try to Remove Anti-Obama Signs in New Orleans
In fact, city councilwoman Susan Guidry questions this guy's expression of his opinion so much that she openly admits that she will try to use ANY technicality she can find to squash it. She literally goes through a list of things she might use against the homeowner while being interviewed by WWL-TV saying "Whatever we can use, we will". Of course she is reportedly just "concerned about public safety".
Democrats Call for Inquiry of Clarence Thomas
The lawmakers also suggest the issue should be taken up by Attorney General Eric Holder if the Judicial Conference determines that Thomas purposely failed to report his income and that of his wife. In its letter, the group cites a New York Times report that Thomas “benefited from use of a private yacht and airplane” owned by Texas real estate tycoon Harlan Crow but “failed to disclose this travel as a gift or travel reimbursement on his federal disclosure forms.”
Dick Durbin: We, er, don’t have the votes in the Senate to pass Obama’s jobs bill
“There are some senators who are up for election who say I’m never gonna vote for a tax increase while I’m up for election, even on the wealthiest people. So, we’re not gonna have 100% Democratic senators. That’s why it needs to be bi-partisan and I hope we can find some Republicans who will join us to make it happen.”
Warren Buffett Does Not Endorse WH's "Buffett Rule"
My program is to have a tax on ultra-rich people who are very tax rates. Not just all rich people. It would probably apply to 50,000 people in a population of 300 million."
DNC's 2012 convention co-chair probed in land deal...
A state lawmaker and a group of Democratic political donors with ties to Gov. Beverly Perdue are poised to sell land at a handsome profit for a tire plant that's being lured with $100 million in state and local incentives, according to public records.
Going postal: Mail worker unions overload tea party group with more than 100 pounds of mail
In what appears to be an attempt to overwhelm their critics, postal union members have sent more than 100 pounds of mail to a tea party group advocating for United States Postal Service reform.
ATF Tells Gun Dealers Not to Sell to Pot Patients
Medical marijuana card holders will be banned from buying guns in Arizona, says the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms agency, which is sending a warning letter to all firearms dealers.
Can You Be a Criminal By Accident?
Should you spend time in prison for violating an obscure federal law you didn’t even know existed? These days, the government’s answer increasingly appears to be a resounding “Yes.” What this all amounts to is a vast expansion of Federal powers, far beyond anything articulated in the Constitution, and placing millions of Americans in dubious legal jeopardy. The great Anglo-Irish philosopher Edmund Burke once said “Bad laws are the worst sort of tyranny.” If Burke were alive today, he would see the trends in American federal law as a grave threat to liberty.
Judge OKs key parts of Alabama immigration law
U.S. District Judge Sharon Blackburn ruled that Alabama can enforce the law’s requirements for schools to verify students’ immigration status, and for police to determine citizenship and status of those they stop, detain or arrest. Police are allowed to arrest anyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant during a routine traffic stop, under the law.
$737 million in green-tech loan to company connected to Pelosi family?
...one of SolarReserve’s “investment partners” is Pacific Corporate Group, through its Clean Energy and Technology Fund. And PCG’s executive director is Ron Pelosi — brother of Nancy Pelosi’s husband. Suddenly, this deal makes a lot more sense than spending $737 million for forty-five jobs.
Democrats oddly unenthusiastic about voting in 2012
Democrats’ muted response to voting in 2012 also contrasts with Republicans’ eagerness. Nearly 6 in 10 Republicans, 58%, describe themselves as more enthusiastic about voting. That is nearly identical to Republicans’ average level of enthusiasm in 2004 (59%) and higher than it was at most points in 2008.
Sheriff Paul Babeu: ATF Are Accomplices To Murder
DOJ Admits Drug Cartels Control the Border
“Major Mexican based TCOs and their associates are solidifying their dominance of the U.S. wholesale drug trade and will maintain their reign for the foreseeable future,” say the assessment. “The Mexican-based organizations’ preeminence derives from a competitive advantage based on several factors, including access to and control of smuggling routes across the U.S. Southwest Border and the capacity to produce (or obtain), transport, and distribute nearly every major illicit drug of abuse in the United States.
Obama’s Racial Crisis
Hope-and-change has now sunk into little more than a tawdry spectacle of racial spoils, as the president of the United States desperately cobbles together squabbling special-interest racial, ethnic, and gender groups in lieu of restoring the nation’s prosperity. Before the age of Obama, I don’t recall that some members of the Black Caucus were so ready to invite political opponents to “go straight to hell,” or to allege that they were veritable murderers eager to lynch blacks and restore slavery.
Gunrunning Informant Used Taxpayer Money to Buy Drugs, Possibly Guns, Lawmakers Allege
Congressional investigators are confronting the Justice Department about evidence they say indicates an FBI informant used U.S. taxpayer money not only to buy drugs but also possibly to buy guns for the Sinaloa cartel.
Teacher penalizes students for saying "bless you"
A Northern California teacher says he doesn't want to hear a common courtesy in his classroom. He's even lowering students' grades if they say "bless you" after someone sneezes. Steve Cuckovich says the practice is disrespectful and disruptive. He's banned saying "bless you" in his high school health class in Vacaville. He even knocked 25 points from one student's grade for saying the phrase in class.
Sarah Palin Threatens to Sue ‘Rogue’ Book Publisher
“The final work that was published contains most of the stories that Mr. McGinniss complains were nothing more than ‘tawdry gossip’ that amounted to the wishful fantasies of disturbed individuals,” Tiemessen writes. “Since both your company, and the author, clearly knew the statements were false, admitted they had no basis in fact or reality, but decided to publish in order to harm Governor Palin’s family, you and Mr. McGinniss have defamed the Palins.”
Governor Bev Perdue of North Carolina Wants to Cancel Elections
Perdue has declared that we should just suspend elections in 2012 for Congress until congressmen solve our economic problems. Given her lack of popularity and the fact that her unpopularity coupled with Obama’s unpopularity will probably swing North Carolina to the GOP in 2012, I’m sure she was privately thinking we might as well suspend all elections next year.
New audio: NC governor struck serious tone on suspending congressional elections
Newly released audio contradicts the claims of Perdue’s press team that her call Tuesday for suspending Congressional election was a joke or hyperbole. In the recording, her tone is matter-of-fact and her comments are part of a serious speech. “Listen to the Governor’s words: She wasn’t joking at all,” North Carolina GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood told The Daily Caller. “The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability.”
Obamacare Has Arrived in the Supreme Court
However, with this petition, the NFIB jumped ahead of Eric Holder’s slow-moving DOJ (which until Monday had done everything it could to slow-walk this case filed by 26 states and the NFIB). The NFIB is obviously not appealing the three-judge panel’s opinion about the unconstitutionality of the individual mandate. But the NFIB is appealing the portion of the panel’s decision that held that the unconstitutional individual mandate could be severed from the Obamacare legislation.
Florida will likely hold Jan. primary, threatening presidential calendar
If that happens, it would almost certainly force the traditional early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada to leapfrog Florida and move their primaries and caucuses into early- to mid-January.
Allen West: Obama intentionally killing the economy
This is an interesting interview that starts out with a word game and gets to more substantive questions about half way through. But my favorite part was when West was asked if Obama is just inept or if he is intentionally harming the economy. West says he’s definitely doing this on purpose and I love the fact that he didn’t play the “we can’t criticize Obama’s motives” game that some politicians want to play:
Reid really can’t be bothered to schedule a vote on Obama’s jobs plan right now
Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, said Monday night that when the Senate returns from a weeklong vacation, the chamber will work … on a bill that would push to label China a currency manipulator, which would make retaliatory steps in order. “I don’t think there’s anything more important for a jobs measure than China trade,” Mr. Reid said.
Report: Suspected Terrorist Sneaks in From Mexico, Captured, and Released on Bail
“That this guy was allowed out on bond is criminal. We don’t have the slightest idea where he is now. If he sets off a car bomb in Tucson or Phoenix, or shoots up a shopping mall or elementary school somewhere, there will be a lot of finger-pointing. But nobody seems that concerned about it now. And this is not the first time something like this has happened.”
Should Pardoned Felons Have Gun Rights Restored?
The Tennessean reported last week that Blackwell, who served five years for a drug conviction and was subsequently granted a full pardon, believes that when Georgia restored all of his rights, that included his 2nd amendment right to bear arms. The Attorney General in Tennessee, on the other hand, believes that his state does not have to respect the Georgia pardon, and has a vested interest in keeping firearms out of the hands of felons, pardoned or not.
Sens. Lieberman, Coburn press for big cuts to Medicare
“Federal spending for Medicare and Medicaid has accounted for a sharply rising share of the federal budget over the last decade, making it clear that it will be virtually impossible to balance our country’s finances without bringing the costs of these programs under control,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter Wednesday to the 12 members of the supercommittee.
U.S. Gov't used an ATF employee to buy weapons with taxpayer money & walk them -- without help from straw buyers!
Official ATF documents as well as sources in Arizona and Washington D.C. confirm that in at least two instances in 2010, an agent of the United States government purchased Kalashnikov-pattern semi-automatic pistols from licensed federal firearms dealers with taxpayer money and delivered those weapons directly into the hands of cartel smugglers.
Wyoming Sheriffs Told Federal BATF & IRS Agents To Abide By The Constitution Or Face Immediate Arrest.
County sheriffs in Wyoming are demanding that federal agents actually abide by the Constitution, or face arrest. Even better, a U.S. Federal District Court agreed.
Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva’s Communist Party Connections
I’m betting though that few voters know of Raul Grijalva’s connection to the Arizona District of the Communist Party USA. Arizona’s communists are very active. Once strong in the mining industry, the Party has in recent years focused on the protecting the illegal immigration movement, and in electing sympathetic Democrats to local and national office.
Americans Express Historic Negativity Toward U.S. Government
A record-high 81% of Americans are dissatisfied with the way the country is being governed, adding to negativity that has been building over the past 10 years. Majorities of Democrats (65%) and Republicans (92%) are dissatisfied with the nation's governance. This perhaps reflects the shared political power arrangement in the nation's capital, with Democrats controlling the White House and U.S. Senate, and Republicans controlling the House of Representatives. Partisans on both sides can thus find fault with government without necessarily blaming their own party.
Obama Lies about the ‘Do-Nothing Congress’
Obama can disagree with every piece of paper passed by the GOP House. But when he slyly bashes Republicans by accusing “this Congress” of “doing nothing,” he simply is lying through his teeth. If Obama wants the entire Congress to get something done, he should tell Harry Reid to wake up and do his job.
A Glimpse at Obama's Not-So-Secret Playbook
The dirty secret is I don’t really want to pass this bill. Like that historian told my senior advisors, I can’t win re-election by emphasizing what I’ve done. Better to run against a do-nothing Congress, Harry Truman-style. I do wish the House Republicans would stop passing stuff though.
Herman Cain Wins Florida GOP Straw Poll
Cain finished with 37 percent of the vote, while Perry trailed with 15 percent. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney followed with 14 percent while former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum drew 11 percent. U.S. Rep. Ron Paul finished with 10.5 percent, while former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman finished with 2 percent. U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, who won the Iowa straw poll in August, finished with just 1 percent of the vote.
EPA to property owner: 'Your land is our land'
You want to build a home, so you buy a $23,000 piece of land in a residential subdivision in your hometown and get started. The government then tells you to stop, threatens you with $40 million in fines and is not kidding
Life After An EMP Attack: No Power, No Food, No Transportation, No Banking And No Internet
Just imagine a world where nobody has power, most cars will not start, the Internet has been fried, the financial system is offline indefinitely, nobody can make any phone calls and virtually all commerce across the entire country is brought to a complete stop.
Darrell Issa and Charles Grassley: DOJ compromised gun probe
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) send a letter to DOJ that accused the department’s Inspector General, Cynthia Schnedar, of compromising their investigation by releasing secret tape recordings to targets of their probe.
House Passes Stopgap Spending Bill to Avert Shutdown, but Battle With Senate Looms
The GOP-dominated House early Friday muscled through a $3.7 billion disaster aid measure along with a stopgap spending bill to keep the government running past next Friday. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the House plan "is not an honest effort at compromise. ... It will be rejected by the Senate." Reid should be evaluated for alzheimers.
Feds Targeted for $600M in Improper Retirement Payments
"The amount of post-death improper payments is consistently $100-$150 million annually, totaling over $601 million in the last five years. In addition, the balance due the government related to these improper post-death payments during the last five years has risen much faster (70%) than total annuity payments (19%)," wrote Inspector General Patrick E. McFarland. Amazing! Same time period Dems were in control of the purse strings.
Chris Christie Reconsidering 2012 Run, Will Decide in Days
...the effort to draft Christie culminated in a hush-hush powwow held in the past week with Christie and several notable Republican billionaires. A source familiar with the meeting suggested that Christie seemed inclined to enter the race but said he needed more time. Christie promised to make a final decision "within two weeks," the source said.
Senate Democrats blocks emergency disaster money
“Harry Reid is holding a bill up with full funding for what is needed right now for no reason — for no reason but for politics,” said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican. “This is why the people just don’t have the respect for this institution and this town anymore.”
Obama fundraiser got $107m in federal tax credits for wind power...
“At a time when Barack Obama is under fire for steering hundreds of millions of dollars in stimulus funds to a failed company linked to a major campaign donor, it is stunning that he would come to Missouri and raise money with another recipient of stimulus cash,” Smith said in a statement to POLITICO. “Sadly, Missourians have come to expect this kind of pay-to-play from the Obama administration. November 2012 can't come soon enough.”
Insult Obama? Not on this campus!
The professor, whom students identified as Joe Kirk, demanded that the student groups sponsoring the wall — including Republicans, Democrats, libertarians and socialists — cover up only the Obama statement. They refused. He then told them that he would come back with a box cutter and cut it out of the wall himself, which he then did.
Pastors Unite Against IRS Tax Code Restrictions on Political Speech in the Pulpit
Since religious leaders — be they liberal or conservative — are legally restricted in recommending or railing against specific political candidates, silence, for some, has likely been the response. This has created an environment under which some leaders feel that they cannot remain true to their personal beliefs and convictions.
Seniority’s value not what it once was, Republican freshmen argue
“When you’re counting numbers, there is strength in numbers and the freshman class has been a fairly cohesive group and that has given us measurable impact in a very short period of time,” said freshman Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.). “I think at the end of the day, it’s what you do that matters more than your seniority.”
PALIN PULLS WITHIN 5 POINTS OF OBAMA...
After trailing Obama by more than 20 percentage points in polls all year, the new national survey, taken Sept. 13-14, found Palin trailing the president by just 5 points, 49-44 percent. The key reason: She now leads Obama among independents, a sharp turnaround.
Fraud case targets grants awarded by Obama golf buddy...
The indictment of a Chicago nurse accused of diverting hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer funds for her personal use has turned a spotlight on an Illinois state agency that awarded her money while it was headed by one of Barack Obama’s closest friends, Dr. Eric E. Whitaker, records show.
Florida firm welcomes clients with AK-47
"our goal is to effect a societal expectation shift that every criminal should expect to confront lethal force when they attack our merchants, rather than the criminal justice system protects the criminals well being during the commission of murders, robberies and crimes."
The EPA’s war on jobs comes to Kentucky
We were warned well in advance that there were going to be real world consequences from these regulations and they would come in the form of lost jobs and reduced energy supplies, particularly during high demand periods. We’re going to see a similar situation playing out in Texas next year, so stay tuned and hang on to your ten gallon hats. It may turn into a bumpy ride from here on out.
Report: At least 200 murders in Mexico now linked to Fast & Furious weapons
Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa, reporters were told the Attorney General in Mexico has confirmed at least 200 murders south of the border happened as a result of Operation Fast and Furious. Eleven crimes in the United States have been linked to Operation Fast and Furious up to this point. Issa said he expects as the investigation in the operation continues, more crimes connected to Fast and Furious will come to light and be exposed.
Time to Say Goodbye to the WTO

What You’re Not Hearing About the New Jobs Bill: It Overrides State’s Rights
(A) WAIVER- A State’s receipt or use of Federal financial assistance for any program or activity of a State shall constitute a waiver of sovereign immunity, under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution or otherwise, to a suit brought by an employee or applicant for employment of that program or activity under this Act for a remedy authorized under Section 375(c) of this Act This is not just a NO! but an OH HELL NO!
AP FACTCHECK: 'The wealthiest people in America pay a lot more taxes than the middle class'...
On average, the wealthiest people in America pay a lot more taxes than the middle class or the poor, according to private and government data. They pay at a higher rate, and as a group, they contribute a much larger share of the overall taxes collected by the federal government.
CEO Blows Away Congressional Hearing: 'I Was Fined for Hiring Too Many People!'
The result will simply create classes of winners (those unemployed for four or five months) and losers (the newly unemployed and the long term unemployed). Ironically, the law banning discrimination against long-term unemployed will make it much harder for such individuals to find jobs.
Holder Launches Civil Rights Case vs. Perry's Texas
It marks the first challenge by the Justice Department to a redistricting plan this year and it has major political implications: The fight could determine which party stands a better shot of winning Texas's four new House seats, and it potentially represents the opening round of a political fight between the president and the Lone Star State governor who is vying to unseat him, Republican Rick Perry.
White House offered “guidance” to second witness in LightSquared inquiry
On Monday, a second witness, Anthony Russo, director of the National Coordination Office for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing, told The Daily Beast that he too was asked by the OMB to insert the 90-day timeframe into his testimony before the House Science Committee, but he refused. The hearing originally was scheduled for Aug. 3, then rescheduled for Sept. 8.
Is the US Department of Labor About To Develop Hit Lists of Individuals To Be Targeted By Unions?
Under the Department of Labor’s proposal, not only will the firms that supply replacement workers like be required to file reports with the Department of Labor, it is highly likely that the Department of Labor will require the replacement workers themselves have to file with the DOL, which will then make the information public, on the internet, for union bosses (and others to view).
Did Obama’s former investment play role in pressuring 4-star general to change testimony?
Obama himself was an early investor and came to the presidency a firm believer in expanding broadband. He remains close to other early investors, like Gips and investment manager George W. Haywood, inviting some to luxe social events at the White House and more intimate gatherings like a night of poker and beer.
ChiTrib editor: Say, maybe it’s time for Obama to withdraw from 2012
The vultures are starting to circle. Former White House spokesman Bill Burton said that unless Obama can rally the Democratic base, which is disillusioned with him, "it's going to be impossible for the president to win." Democratic consultant James Carville had one word of advice for Obama: "Panic."
Obama to propose a “Buffett tax” while pushing jobs plan
What happens when the cost of risk equals the cost of relatively risk-free income? People stop taking risks and shelter their capital. When capital stops being risked in new ventures, economic growth slows and stops, jobs either never get created or start disappearing, and we get stagnation or recession
Obama's urgent jobs plan: Right now, 'right now' means sometime next month maybe
Well, here we are on the next Monday after that next Monday and we've just learned from the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, Dick Durbin, that actually it seems that body won't really be seriously getting into the legislation for a while yet. The Senate has some other more important business to handle. And then there's this month's congressional vacation, which in Washington is called "a recess," like elementary school.
Obama Proposes New Czar
American Infrastructure Financing Authority (AIFA) czars. Obama’s newest czars will be given the authority to manage over a trillion dollars of federal funding for roads, bridges, buildings, waterways, dams and other infrastructure. Here we go again. No doubt, Obama hopes that few legislators or American citizens will read the deadly details buried within the 199 pages of his proposed American Jobs Act that will establish this latest czar-ship, nor understand just how expensive AIFA is going to be.
Obama calls for broad tax increases - Wants three dollars in taxes for each dollar of cuts
“Veto threats, a massive tax hike, phantom savings, and punting on entitlement reform is not a recipe for economic or job growth — or even meaningful deficit reduction,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican. “The good news is that the joint committee is taking this issue far more seriously than the White House.”
Is the Obama administration protecting lizards at expense of jobs?
“The wolf at the door is the lizard; we’re concerned listing it would shut down drilling activity for a minimum of two years and as many as five years while the service determines what habitat is needed for the lizard. That means no drilling, no seismic surveys, no roads built, no electric lines,” said Ben Shepperd, president of the Permian Basin Petroleum Association
WH May Face Criminal Charges Over Solyndra
Fraud against the United States is one of the most serious felony offenses in the federal penal law. It is even more serious than another apparent Solyndra violation that has captured congressional attention: the Obama administration’s flouting of a statute designed to protect taxpayers.
Democrats Balk at Obama Tax Plan
Even the payroll tax cut extension and expansion, assumed to be the least controversial parts of the president’s plan, have been kind of a fizzle. Conservatives said such temporary measures don’t work since businesses crave predictability and many Democrats dislike the fact that taxes being lowered are the ones that finance Social Security.
CBC’s Cleaver: We would be ‘marching on the White House’ if Obama weren’t president
Cleaver again implicitly endorses the identity politics that so inform CBC members’ approach to the issues, in effect arguing it’s OK and even encouraged for CBC members and others to hold Obama to a different standard just because of the president’s race. Seems to me like such a backward approach for the chairman of the CBC to take. Sounds racist to me.
My money: I deserve to keep it all
The question of what we “deserve” boils down to which came first, the individual human with rights, or the state. America was founded on the principle that the individual human with rights comes first. Any idea that violates that principle is counter to our founding idea. It is not possible to reconcile with our founding principle the idea of collective schemes in which we make some modification to “what we deserve.” We either deserve to keep all our own earnings – money – wealth – goods – or we do not have unalienable rights.
Senate Panel to Question Google on Web Search Supremacy
The Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights will hold a hearing Wednesday to question Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt about how the company decides to rank search returns and whether it pushes its own products up in the rankings over others.
Sen. Burr: Local Officials Should Make Education Decisions
The North Carolina Republican said Friday in announcing his Empowering Local Educational Decision Making Act that state and local school districts are in a better position to make decisions than federal bureaucrats in Washington. “Providing our students with a quality education is essential to their future success and to the continued competitiveness of our nation in the global economy,” Burr said. “However, it has been proven that a one-size-fits-all approach handed down from the federal government does not work.
Agents find weapons, rocket launcher near Rio Grande
Inside the bag were six assault rifles, a grenade launcher, a rocket launcher, 20 ammunition magazines for various-sized weapons and three packages of what appeared to be C-4 plastic explosives, a Border Patrol news release said.
Obama admin reworked Solyndra loan to favor donor
The Obama administration restructured a half-billion dollar federal loan to a troubled solar energy company in such a way that private investors — including a fundraiser for President Barack Obama — moved ahead of taxpayers for repayment in case of a default, government records show.
Lawmakers question WHouse role in wireless project
Lawmakers this week raised fresh questions about the proposed network by Virginia-based Lightsquared, a firm backed by billionaire Philip Falcone, a prominent donor to Obama's Democratic part
Tea Party Activist to Challenge Boehner in Next Primary
Tea Party activist David Lewis, a 26-year-old married father, announced Friday that he will challenge the Ohio Republican. But Lewis is mounting a protest candidacy on a single issue: Boehner’s support of a federal budget that provided funding to Planned Parenthood.

Rep. Raul Labrador, (R-Idaho), on the EPA preventing Mike and Chantell Sackett from building a new home, claiming their property is a wetland.
Beck: GOP and Tea Party in Fight to Death
“The Republicans have one last chance to redeem themselves and if they go with a big government kind of guy and the tea party doesn’t understand that service… and conservative small government values go hand-in-hand, we may lose the soul of our country.
Dem Rep: Americans don't deserve to keep all of their money...
“I’ll put it this way. You don’t deserve to keep all of it and it’s not a question of deserving because what government is, is those things that we decide to do together. And there are many things that we decide to do together like have our national security. Like have police and fire. What about the people that work at the National Institute of Health who are looking for a cure for cancer,” Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky said.
Cherokee Indians: We are free to oust blacks
The nation's second-largest Indian tribe said on Tuesday that it would not be dictated to by the U.S. government over its move to banish 2,800 African Americans from its citizenship rolls. "The Cherokee Nation will not be governed by the BIA," Joe Crittenden, the tribe's acting principal chief, said in a statement responding to the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs.
Bush Admin. Voted AGAINST Solyndra Loan
The White House noted to ABC News that the Bush administration was the first to consider Solyndra's application and that some executives at the company have a history of donating to Republicans. The results of the Congressional probe shared Tuesday with ABC News show that less than two weeks before President Bush left office, on January 9, 2009, the Energy Department's credit committee had voted against offering a loan commitment to Solyndra.
Wisconsin Unions Start Feeding on Each Other
If you want a good measure of how deeply the collective bargaining bill in Wisconsin has disrupted public sector unions, there is no better example than the Wisconsins Education Association Council (WEAC). Last month WEAC announced that it was laying off 40% of its staff. With little over which to collectively bargain, and with dues no longer withheld from paychecks, the need for and sustainability of a union bureaucracy could not be justified. Now WEAC is being boycotted by National Staff Organization (NSO), a union representing educational union employees. Isn’t that great, education union employees have their own union? Is there a union for employees of education union employee unions?
Bloomberg poll puts Obama re-elect number at … 29%
Bloomberg asks respondents whether they will definitely vote for Obama in 2012, and only 29% of them say yes. Another 21% say they will consider a different candidate, while 43% say they will definitely not vote for Obama. Among Democrats, only 67% don’t want a primary challenge in 2012 against the sitting President, while 30% “would like another candidate to try” for the nomination.
Pennsylvania weighing bill to allocate electoral votes by congressional district
Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi is trying to gather support to change the state’s “winner-takes-all” approach for awarding electoral votes. Instead, he’s suggesting that Pennsylvania dole them out based on which candidate wins each of the 18 congressional districts, with the final two going to the contender with the most votes statewide.
Another Federal Judge Rules Obamacare Mandate Unconstitutional
The ruling by Judge Christopher C. Conner in Harrisburg was issued in one of more than 30 lawsuits nationwide that have been filed over the 2010 law that is President Barack Obama’s signature initiative. It was filed by a Pennsylvania couple who do not have health insurance, but believe they would be subject to the mandate.
House Speaker Boehner to outline GOP jobs plan
Boehner's policy prescriptions are expected to mirror the Republican Party's long-running position that the key to jump starting growth is to get government out of the way and allow the private sector to do its thing. That means less regulation, lower taxes and big reductions in government spending. According to his office, the Speaker will "discuss the need to liberate America's economy by removing government barriers to private-sector job growth."
General accused WH of pressuring him to change testimony for Democratic donor
The four-star Air Force general who oversees U.S. Space Command walked into a highly secured room on Capitol Hill a week ago to give a classified briefing to lawmakers and staff, and dropped a surprise. Pressed by members, Gen. William Shelton said the White House tried to pressure him to change his testimony to make it more favorable to a company tied to a large Democratic donor.
3 more murders linked to Gunwalker
Weapons linked to ATF's controversial "Fast and Furious" operation have been tied to at least eight violent crimes in Mexico including three murders, four kidnappings and an attempted homicide.
Obama deliberately kills jobs
In his State of the Union address in 2010, Mr. Obama appealed for congressional approval of the trade deals, but it was he who chose not to allow Congress to vote for that entire year, even though he had said the agreements would create jobs. In his State of the Union address this year, Mr. Obama once again implored Congress to act on the job-creating agreements. But rather than move forward to create jobs, he did nothing in February.
Crony Capitalism on Steroids from GE to Solyndra
More than one thousand Solyndra workers lost their jobs. Now as the truth comes out, we discover that the White House was heavily involved in the Department of Energy’s rushed decision to give the Stimulus funds to Solyndra, and they tried to move the money through so quickly they seem to have ignored concerns that the company was not viable. Why would they do this? Perhaps it’s because a large investor in the company (about 35%) is Obama campaign bundler George Kaiser.

Reid Tackling Bike Paths Before Obama Jobs Bill
Harry Reid: "Well, for most Americans, [bike paths] are absolutely important. It's good for purposes of allowing people to travel, um, without burning all the fossil fuel on the highways. I got up this morning really early, and went out and did my exercise. I'm not exaggerating--scores!--at least 30 or 40 bikes--so scores may be a slight exaggeration--of people, not just for exercise, traveling to work. Backpacks on--they are going to work.

5 Reasons Black Americans Should Give Up On The Democratic Party
It's truly bizarre to hear Maxine Waters, Andre Carson, Jesse Jackson and other assorted Democratic "leaders" blaming Republicans or even more improbably, Tea Partiers, because black Americans are having a tough time. In every single place in the country where black Americans are a decisive factor in selecting the politicians in charge, Democrats are running the show. How do you look at decimated cities where Democrats have had control of every lever of power for 40 years and conclude, "Republicans are the problem?"
Michelle Obama whispers to Obama at 911 Event: All this just for the Flag and Shakes her head

Prior to Obama running for President, Michelle Obama was an open Pro-Marxist and stated that she did not support the American Flag, our Constitution or America. her past and even current ties into the SEIU, ACORN and the Socialist Party of America are very well documented. We should ask why the major media have refused to cover such disrespect by the First Lady.

Hoven’s employer– Walgreens– fired him after the incident, despite the fact that he was in fear for his life as a gunman tried to shoot him. No injuries or loss of property occurred.

Muslim Group Seeks to Ban Sharia Law in America
As American Muslims, we believe that the law should treat people of all faiths equally, while protecting Muslims and non-Muslims alike from extremist attempts to use the legal instrument of shari‘ah (also known as Islamic jurisprudence, or fiqh) to incubate, within the West, a highly politicized and dangerous understanding of Islam that is generally known as “Islamism,” or “radical Islam.”
Rep. Issa hit with ethics allegations
A spokesman for Issa said the complaint is part of an effort orchestrated by the White House to discredit its critics. “This complaint is entirely without merit.

This is just their latest salvo in an ongoing effort to obstruct oversight,” said Frederick Hill, Issa’s spokesman.

FACT CHECK: Obama's jobs plan paid for? Seems not
Obama's promise Thursday that everything in his jobs plan will be paid for rests on highly iffy propositions. It will only be paid for if a committee he can't control does his bidding, if Congress puts that into law and if leaders in the future - the ones who will feel the fiscal pinch of his proposals - don't roll it back.
A super simple solution to create hundreds of thousands of jobs
Obama continues to repeat his non-solution solutions, so I’ll continue to repeat this actual solution. Earlier this summer, I wrote about an IHS-CERA study that showed picking up the pace of Gulf Oil permitting could result in 230,000 jobs. Predictably, the administration’s response to the study was not to take its recommendations to heart — but, rather, to criticize the study itself.

Among the bills passed by the House, but stuck in the Senate are The Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act, The Energy Tax Prevention Act, Disapproval of FCC’s Net Neutrality Act, The Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act, The Consumer Financial Protection & Soundness Improvement Act and The Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act. That doesn’t even touch the various bills the House has passed to reenergize the Gulf. Oh yeah, plus the House passed a budget.

Strangely, she was saying things that liberals might like, if not for Ms. Palin’s having said them. “This is not the capitalism of free men and free markets, of innovation and hard work and ethics, of sacrifice and of risk,” she said of the crony variety. She added: “It’s the collusion of big government and big business and big finance to the detriment of all the rest — to the little guys. It’s a slap in the face to our small business owners — the true entrepreneurs, the job creators accounting for 70 percent of the jobs in America.” Is there a hint of a political breakthrough hiding in there?
Senate Approves $500 Billion Increase in Borrowing Authority
The action came under an unusual legislative procedure spelled out under the August agreement to raise the U.S. debt ceiling and avoid a U.S. credit default.

A real life trial of martial law in one of the largest cities in the New York metropolitan area would allow the military to be better equipped to handle all types of situations when martial law takes place on a nationwide basis during hyperinflation.

Obama Orders DOJ To Enforce Seldom-Used 1994 Law Restricting Abortion Clinic Protests

Gunwalker Explodes into the Heartland
Likewise, what Codrea has dubbed as “Gangwalker” appears to be another attempt to provide guns to criminals in order to generate more gun crime and then more calls for gun control. The biggest difference between the two operations at this early date only seems to be that Gangwalker is a purposeful attempt to create the deaths of American citizens in order to pursue the administration’s fanatical anti-gun agenda. American deaths, for political gain.

The document is devoid of specifics, which will be proclaimed from the podium on Thursday, but it does say that ideas announced to “provide economic security for the middle class … will be both legislative and executive actions.” The key words are the last two: executive actions.
