White House’s Relations With Media Turn Nasty
The same administration who likened half of the country to “Nazis” due to their desire to pay their own medical bills, the same administration who placed well-meaning conservatives and returning troops from the Middle East ont he DHS list for suspicion over “domestic terrorism” and freak outs, respectively will surely turn on the press–especially the lower the President falls in the polls.
SPEAKER NO MORE?
Speaker John Boehner is holding a press conference to announce that, as previously reported, the Republicans have caved on the payroll tax cut extension standoff. (Okay, he probably won't use those exact words.) From his statement earlier today:
Coburn Releases New Report on Wasteful Government Spending in 2011: “Wastebook 2011”
“Video games, robot dragons, Christmas trees, and magic museums. This is not a Christmas wish list, these are just some of the ways the federal government spent your tax dollars. Over the past 12 months, politicians argued, debated and lamented about how to reign in the federal government’s out of control spending. All the while, Washington was on a shopping binge, spending money we do not have on things we do not absolutely need.
POTUS has Coffee with Progressive Media Stars
An all-star list of progressive and liberal media folks came to the White House today to chat with President Obama over coffee in the Roosevelt Room. The group chatted with the president about economic messaging, his agenda for 2012, the various campaign arguments against different GOP candidates...

Obama admin to renew nuke scientist exchange with China that produced loss of secrets in 90s...
Critics say the plan is similar to an exchange program in the 1990s that sent U.S. nuclear scientists to China and produced one of the worst cases of nuclear espionage. Secrets about every deployed warhead in the U.S. arsenal were compromised, including the W-88 small nuclear warhead deployed on submarine-launched missiles. “We’ve seen this movie before, and it has a bad ending,” one official said.

Was Obama‘s Dog ’Bo’ Flown in From Hawaii for Presidential Photo Op?
Bo had in fact flown to Hawaii with Michelle Obama and her daughters. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser even quoted an eyewitness who said he had seen the Portuguese Water Dog being walked in the tropical paradise. So why was Bo posing for photo ops in D.C. with the president?
FEDS GIVE 2012 DNC CO-CHAIR ILLEGAL INSIDER INFO...
Governor Beverly Perdue’s office have been getting advance word on monthly unemployment statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. This is highly illegal under federal law and violates what I have understood to be a strong tradition in the BLS and other government statistics that no one—no one at all, not even in the White House—gets advanced word ahead of the public announcement of government statistics.
Indiana Lawmaker: Holder Absent on Primary Petition Fraud Case
"We have to involve U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. That's why I have written a letter to him, he has yet to respond to it, about this case. There are federal crimes for interfering with a federal election so he has jurisdiction. They are turning their heads on this and the ACORN cases that I brought to him," Rokita charged.
Pelosi’s economic “experts” included son’s boss and her business partner in 2010
Roll Call reports that most of the Pelosi/Hambrecht partnerships have been a bust, but not for the Democratic Party. Hambrecht has been a big donor to Democrats and the party, with more than $2 million in contributions in FEC records reviewed by Roll Call. Pelosi never disclosed any of this while presenting Hambrecht as an economics expert in May 2010, nor did she mention that her son Paul Jr worked for Hambrecht at the time, either — which might call into question the access to information that guides the Pelosis’ investments with Hambrecht.
Preparing for martial law
Within the last five weeks, I’ve been in contact with highly placed sources, their staffers and associates who work inside of the beltway. I’ve also engaged in dialogue with top security officials, all who state that this legislation is not about the security of our nation, but the ultimate control of the American people. According to these sources, the administration and congress are anticipating an apocalyptic scenario in the not-too-distant future.
Presidential Frontrunner Warns Martial Law Being Established in America
Leading GOP candidate Ron Paul has warned in recent interviews that the amendments passed in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) are not only dangerous, but authorize the establishment of total martial law inside the United States. Not only does the bill, in sections 1031 and 1032, declare the unconstitutional right to detain Americans indefinitely without trial, but it authorizes an Internet offensive and online Pentagon takeover under the pretext of cybersecurity and stopping online piracy.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Il dead at age 69
In a "special broadcast" Monday from the North Korean capital, state media said Kim died of a heart ailment on a train due to a "great mental and physical strain" on Dec. 17 during a "high intensity field inspection." It said an autopsy was done on Dec. 18 and "fully confirmed" the diagnosis.
Obama Regime Moves to Ban Farm Kids from Working on Farms
Under new standards being advocated by the Labor Department, youths under the age of eighteen would be prohibited from working in hay lofts, giving shots, caring for baby animals, and being in the vicinity of animals whose behavior may be "unpredictable." For the estimated 1.3 million youths living or working on farms, this means no longer being able to perform routine chores if the farm is set up as a corporation or a business partnership. Today, the vast majority of family farms are legally structured in this manner.

Marines promoted inflated story for Medal of Honor recipient
Obama told the audience in the White House East Room on Sept. 15 that Meyer had driven into the heart of a savage ambush in eastern Afghanistan against orders. He’d killed insurgents at near-point-blank range, twice leapt from his gun turret to rescue two dozen Afghan soldiers and saved the lives of 13 U.S. service members as he fought to recover the bodies of four comrades, the president said. But there’s a problem with this account:
‘Indefinite Detention’ Bill Heads To Obama’s Desk As White House Drops Veto Threat
Obama has dropped his threat to veto the bill and is now expected to sign it into law. Remember – it was Obama’s White House that demanded the law apply to U.S. citizens in the first place. The bill which would codify into law the indefinite detention without trial of American citizens is about to be passed and sent to Obama’s desk to be signed into law, even as some news outlets still erroneously report that the legislation does not apply to U.S. citizens.
Pelosi Has Totally Lost It
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that extending unemployment benefits would add “600,000 jobs to our economy.” She also said that the money from unemployment benefits creates a “safety net” for the U.S. economy because it “injects demand into the economy -- creating jobs.”
Omnibus spending deal blocks funding for light bulb efficiency standards
House Republicans have sought for months to repeal provisions in a 2007 energy law that require traditional incandescent light bulbs to be 30 percent more efficient starting in 2012. Republicans often describe the standards as a “light bulb ban,” arguing that the rules would greatly restrict consumer choice by pushing out traditional incandescent bulbs in favor of more expensive, but more efficient, LED (light emitting diode) and CFL (compact fluorescent light) bulbs.
Ex-Freddie, Fannie Chiefs Sued by SEC Over Loans
In the lawsuits, the SEC said Syron, Mudd and others understated the lenders’ exposure to subprime mortgage loans.

Senate Dems kill bill that would have required balanced budget...

Republicans push payroll tax cut bill through House, despite White House veto threat
Republicans pushed legislation through the House Tuesday night that would keep alive Social Security payroll tax cuts for some 160 million Americans at President Barack Obama’s request — but also would require construction of a Canada-to-Texas oil pipeline that has sparked a White House veto threat. Passage, on a largely party-line vote of 234-193, sent the measure toward its certain demise in the Democratic-controlled Senate, triggering the final partisan showdown of a remarkably quarrelsome year of divided government.
CT Mayor Asks State to Allow Illegal Aliens to Vote...
New Haven Mayor John DeStefano plans to ask the state Legislature to allow illegal immigrants who live in the city to be able vote in municipal elections.
Dem lawmaker blasts ‘Professor Obama’ as arrogant, alienating
After observing President Obama for the last three years, it has become obvious to me that the president might prefer to be a university professor rather than do the job he holds today. While he might not realize that he feels this way, the evidence is very clear to those who work with or watch him closely.
Class Warfare Erupts in Dem Caucus, as Member Throws Pelosi's Fortune in Her Face
Rep. Laura Richardson attacked Pelosi for endorsing the GOP-written pay freeze during a Tuesday caucus discussion of a possible Democratic amendment to the payroll tax cut, according to several sources who were in the room at the time. Both women are California Democrats.

Boeing applauded the N.L.R.B.’s move. “We have maintained from the outset that the complaint was without merit and that the best course of action would be for it to be dropped,” said Tim Neal, a Boeing spokesman. “Today that happened. Boeing is grateful for the overwhelming support we received from across the country to vigorously contest this complaint and support the legitimate rights of businesses to make business decisions.”

Government Activating FEMA Camps Across U.S.
The government has patiently put into place the crucial elements of its police state grid and overarching plan for the internment of political enemies. We are quite literally one terror event away from the plan going live. As the DHS and the establishment media keep telling us, the next terror event will be on American soil and not the work of al-Qaeda but domestic patriot political groups. The FBI has specialized in creating domestic terrorists – or rather patsies – and shifting the blame over to their political enemies.
Ron Paul: “They’re Setting The Stage For Violence In This Country”
Paul was asked for his opinion on whether H.R. 645 (The National Emergency Centers Establishment Act) could lead to Americans being incarcerated in detention camps during a time of martial law. “Yeah, that’s their goal, they’re setting up the stage for violence in this country, no doubt about it,” responded Paul.
Richmond City Audits Local Tea Party After Standoff with Mayor
Two weeks after the Richmond Tea Party delivered an invoice to Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones for costs incurred for previous rallies, we received a letter from the City of Richmond formally stating that the city is auditing our Tea Party. Coincidence? This audit is an obvious attempt to intimidate and harass us for standing up against the unfair treatment and discrimination against our Tea Party.
Iron Curtain Begins Descending onto the United States of America
We now stand in the beginning of the final phase-solution of the existence of the United States of America. The Executive and Legislative branches of our government are now consistently operating outside of US law and have firmly become the enemy of We-the-People. You may not want to hear this. The truth often cuts deeply. The government has moved beyond rogue and has now entered the complete and final Dictatorial Tyranny stage. Will you stand and fight or will you lie down and die? The choice is still yours…but not for much longer.
