You Betcha!

You damn right she blames Bush.........

Pelosi blames Bush administration for BP oil spill.

Read more at the Washington Examiner:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., blamed the Bush administration for any lack of oversight leading up to the Gulf oil spill. The Obama administration, on the other hand, is blameless.

From Talk Radio News Service:

“Many of the people appointed in the Bush administration are still burrowed in the agencies that are supposed to oversee the [oil] industry,” Pelosi said when asked if Democrats could have prevented or mitigated the crisis by keeping a closer watch on the industry.

Added the Speaker, “the cozy relationships between the Bush administration’s agency leadership and the industry is clear…I’ve heard no complaints from my members about the way the president has handled it,” Pelosi stated.

On Friday, the Washington Examiner requested that Speaker Pelosi’s office release the list of Bush appointees to whom she was referring. We’ll let you know when we hear back.

Read more at the Washington Examiner:

Nancy Pelosi takes idiocy and arrogance to entirely new heights almost daily. The woman is a walking poster child for why liberals should never be allowed to breed.

You damn right she blames Bush. That's all she does is blame everyone other than her own party, that's all she knows how to do.

"We are completely losing control of the border"

Pirates threaten boats on US-Mexico border lake

The waters of Falcon Lake normally beckon boaters with waterskiing and world-record bass fishing. But this holiday weekend, fishermen on the waters that straddle the U.S.-Mexico border are on the lookout for something more sinister: pirates.

Twice in recent weeks, fishermen have been robbed at gunpoint by marauders that the local sheriff says are "spillover" from fighting between rival Mexican drug gangs.

While the politicos and pundits banter an the president continues to dodge and duck serious examination of the growing problems of unprotected borders, the problem south of our border grows.

Who would have thought a generation ago, that we would today be dealing with millions of illegal criminals spilling across our borders and a complacent government that refuses to even acknowledge that there is a problem.

And now we have drug lords warring along our border and killing people weekly by the dozens, within a stones throw of America. Americans can literally look cross the border and see these drug cartels massing as if they were the Mongul hoards.

And now we have news of drug pirates coming out and attacking Americans in our border waters. And trust me folks, this ain't Pirates of the Caribbean. This is serious and it is only a matter of time before Americans are killed by these thugs.

Not Paying Their Fair Share According to Hillary

"In Brazil" according to Hilliary......The rich are getting richer and they are pulling the poor out of poverty, the way we use to do it here in America, before we changed it. Watch this woman lament the agonies of trying to impose socialism on a nation that knows better.

Questions the White House refuses to answer

When the liberal left mainstream media and those like James Carville begin to turn and question this president?> Then people had better pay attention. Yesterday alone the tone in the media concerning Obama is palpable. Even the left is realizing now what an inept and unsavy crew they have allowed to occupy the office.

From the gulf oil disaster to the Sestak affair, everywhere you look in this administration there is a growing stench. So how much longer will the people and the guardians of truth (the media) allow this circus to go on.

New York's Shameful Blasphemy

I am sure that this action no more reflects the large majority of New Yorkers, than it does the large majority of Americans, but the reality remains. A group of secular egalitarian apologists have now cleared the way with their approval, for the build of a mosque at ground zero.

A blasphemy to the memory of over 3000 Americans who died in the shadow of this abomination to be constructed to purposely degrade and smear their memory. Shame on these egalitarian ideologues and their traitorous act against this nation and the city of New York and the victims of Islamic terrorism.

NYC government approves Ground Zero mosque
A New York community board has resoundingly backed a controversial plan for an Islamic cultural center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero.

The non-binding vote by the Manhattan community board late Monday passed 29:1 with 10 abstentions in a strong endorsement of the planned project.

Supporters say the proposed Cordoba House will transform negative stereotypes about Islam prevalent in the city since the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center.

"We expected some opposition. I think we have reached a moment where certain things are starting to get flushed out. Certain emotions are coming to the surface. We have learned a lot from this," said Daisy Khan, who is part of the project.
"I'm actually glad this kind of debate is taking place," she said.
Opponents complain that a mosque so close to Ground Zero, where Islamist hijackers crashed two airliners into the Twin Towers, killing almost 3,000 people, is an insult to the memory of the dead.

But Manhattan borough president Scott Stringer said that "for anyone to imply that a mosque is not appropriate in New York..., that is just an un-American attitude."
"I'll do everything I can to make sure this mosque does get opened and people have the right to assemble there and practice their religion," he told the Daily News.
The proposed Islamic center is to be built on the site of a former clothing shop and is planned to contain sports facilities and a theater, as well as the mosque.

Corporate Malfeasance, Criminal Negligence & Blame for the "Previous Administration"

Watch the entire interview. James Carville is so mad at Obama and his administration that he is about to explode.

You will have to follow the youtube link to watch the video, seeing as ABC has disabled embedding.

James Carville has utterly no shame. The man is a democrat media whore who will always blame republicans first while making every excuse in the book for a democrat. And it certainly looks like the current debacle in the gulf, has old James in a tizzy and his panties in a wad trying to find a way to blame the republicans and George Bush for it all.

Watching the man hustle his tripe is to watch a true master of the big lie principle at work.

Where was the corporate malfeaseance back during the White Water investigation James? Or what about the criminality of one William Jefferson Clinton's perjured testimony? And what of George H.W. Bush's complicit evil in leaving all that wickedness behind for poor old Bill to have to clean up?

Quick, someone get me a crying towel.

The answer to the Gulf oil spill

Obama skips Arlington

Found at Michelle Malkin's blog

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers

President Obama went to Arlington Cemetery to lay the wreath last year, but this year Obama’s handing the wreath to Plugs and heading off to the more welcoming political climes of Chicago:

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama plans to spend a long holiday weekend in Chicago.

The White House says Obama and his family will travel to their hometown on Thursday and stay through the weekend. It will be their first trip back home since a visit for Valentine’s Day weekend in February 2009.

On Monday, Obama is scheduled to participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Ill.

In Obama’s absence, Vice President Joe Biden will participate in the customary wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington.

Obama will however make it back to Washington in time next week to honor Paul McCartney, who has sacrificed so much for the freedoms we enjoy.

Boy, I’m starting to think that West Point speech wasn’t from the heart.

Update: Obama will alter vacation plans slightly and travel to the Gulf on Friday in a desperate attempt to plug the blowout in his approval ratings.

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers

Why does this not surprise me? And on the heels of Biden's most recent gaff in Belgium? Who better to be a stand in for the all star second string team leader. Biden the bench warmer will have to do I guess.

OK, Here's my plan

And my hero 'Hannibal' of the "A-Team" would have loved it.

I say first, we send in the Army Corps of Engineers (pronounced 'corpse' if you are a Obama fan) to re-route the Gulf stream in the Gulf of Mexico into the Rio Grand river. (spelled 'grande' if you are sensitive to egalitarian or cinco de mayo concerns)

Then we get a bunch of Nancy Pelosi's 'Hait Ashbury' group of 'roach toaking left overs from the 1960's to coordinate the green weenie earth people with money and convince them to manufacture millions of pairs of overalls from environmentally friendly hemp and organically grown cotton. (Bring in more of Pelosi's San Fran people if you want the suits to be color coordinated ensembles and fashionable bath house wear).

Then we ship all those newly created clothes down to Mexico and deliver them to Calderone and tell him that these are the new uniforms for all new immigrants (also known as waders) to wear upon entering into the US via their usual route.

So can you see the simple beauty of the plan now? Once all of those illegals (also know as undocumented workers) don those new Uncle Sam provided union suits and hit the river in their usual numbers?

We will have this oily mess cleaned up in a week. Two at tops. And once they are all here with their oily clothes on? We can have BP pay for the laundry and cleaning bill for all them long handles and the construction costs of the diversion. And then BP can ring out all them suits for whatever recovery of oil they can manage.

As Hannibal would say? "I love it when a plan comes together!"

A novel idea with Washington potential

Miami Company Creates "Gringo Masks" for Illegals

Miami ad group making a statement with Gringo Masks

If you are looking for a way to beat Arizona's new immigration law, look no further than Miami's new Gringo Masks.

The new product, brainchild of Miami advertising agency Zubi Advertising, guarantees the cops won't be stopping you or your loved ones after you put your best white face forward.

The product is simple. Choose from a cut out of a blue-eyed, sandy hair-colored white guy or a green-eyed, blond haired white woman.

Cut the face to fit yours. Poke out the eyes. And presto! You don't look like a "suspicious, potentially illegal" alien. Rubber band or green card not included.

I say? What a deal! But maybe we should buy a few hundred of those and send them to Washington, so maybe Pelosi and Reid and the rest of that bunch of losers could make safe transitions home during congressional recess, without having to worry about being accosted by so called 'tea baggers.'

Hackers send a message

Road Rage: Hackers Say 'No Latinos' on Highway LinkSign

Officials said the signs are password protected, but that generally does little to stop hackers intent on changing them.

Last year, a string of road sign hacks were made in three separate states.

In Austin, Texas, a sign cautioned drivers to the "ZOMBIES IN AREA! RUN." Another in Collinsville, Illinois said "Daily LANE CLOSURES DUE TO ZOMBIES." And another in rural Indiana read "RAPTORS AHEAD - CAUTION."

Reaction to the sign, posted on the "Today in South Florida" Facebook page was mixed.

"Wow someone has a lot of time on their hands to think up of how they can belittle and disrespect a group of people who help keep this country going," said Luly Cueto-Belot.

"Greatest thing I ever saw...let's take this country back dammit!!!..south will rise again mother---er!!" said David Pines.

'Hopey Changey' The next installment

 Private pay shrinks to historic lows
Paychecks from private business shrank to their smallest share of personal income in U.S. history during the first quarter of this year, a USA TODAY analysis of government data finds.

At the same time, government-provided benefits — from Social Security, unemployment insurance, food stamps and other programs — rose to a record high during the first three months of 2010.

Those records reflect a long-term trend accelerated by the recession and the federal stimulus program to counteract the downturn. The result is a major shift in the source of personal income from private wages to government programs.

So what's the deal? How's that hope and change thing working out for everyone?

Not so good huh...... Apparently the socialist in chief is feeling the pain a little bit too. His approval rating is down to 42% according to the polls this morning.

But there is more bad news on the horizon this morning that could affect both of those points today. The news is that the DOW will open down as word of worsening economic crisis in Europe (and a double dip recession) continues and the rumor of war is in the air concerning the Korean peninsula and the little lunatic Kim Jong.

Jack Webb Schools Obama on Democracy

You gotta love and appreciate a timeless reality........

"We are doing all we can"

So what happens when the phrase "we are doing all we can," leads to the reality that you can't really handle the problem?

Apparently as it concerns the Obama administration, (35 days into this disaster) that means that BP had better step aside or be brushed aside, as the real "A Team" (Obama's green team) are about to step in and take over and show the world how it is really done.

The Obama administration questioned BP's competence Sunday, when Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar told reporters he was "not completely" confident that BP knows what it's doing.

"If we find they're not doing what they're supposed to be doing, we'll push them out of the way appropriately," Salazar said.

That certainly sounds like some bold and decisive talk to me, but what do they have to back up and support their threats. One thing that I am certain of, the only thing governments have any historical track record in managing, are military build ups and war. And I am all but certain, that civilian contractors could do a superior job of those.

So once again the plan is what? Turn it over to the government? I am sorry folks, but that dog eared analogy of "we are from the government and we are here to help" just doesn't carry much weight or hope for me. Especially when dealing with disasters. Their track record just doesn't support belief.

While I realize that our dear president is anxiously looking for a means for him to come out on top and portraying him as the saviour of the planet, somehow I fail to see either him or his entourage of minions in the cabinet, as having either the experience or the magical powers to put an end to this nightmare.

As I said yesterday, our last best hope of dealing with this catastrophe is to follow the recommendations of scientist who have seen this before. Bring in nuclear weapon and seal the well. The Russians have done it before, so maybe we can give them a call. In either event, our time is running out, so unless Obama and Salazar have some 'hail Mary' plan that they haven't told us about, all this chest beating by Salazar is no more than politics as usual.

Meanwhile the CEO of BP had this to say....

Asked about Salazar's criticism, Suttles said BP is working with experts from other oil companies and the government to find a solution.

"What I do know is, everyone is frustrated. I think the people of the region are frustrated. I know we are, I know the government is," Suttles said on NBC. "The fact that it's taken this long is painful to everybody."

Suttles said on ABC's "Good Morning America" that BP's next shot at plugging the well this week stands a very good chance of success. But he said the global oil company has more plans in case the latest efforts fails, like several before it.

BP plans to use heavy mud and cement to stop the breach, a maneuver called a top kill. Suttles said on the CBS "Early Show" the effort should start Wednesday morning and they'll know the same day if it works.

So what will the plan be next week when this thing is still gushing? How about this...How about we bring in the heavy manure that has been spread from day one of this disaster and use that to plug the well. There ought to be enough of that on hand to plug this well and all the holes from here to Uranus.

It's been over a month........(UPDATED)

I wrote this blog earlier this morning and since then there have apparently been some similar conclusions being drawn by others,

Palin accuses Obama of being in bed with big oil7

Yes, April 20th to be precise. That is when the news of the explosion on the 'Trans Ocean Deep Water Horizon' first reached our ears. And now, the aftermath of that reality combined with the reality of a completely impotent and complicit administration and media, have come washing ashore in Louisiana.

A few points to ponder and consider.

A month after hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf coast? What had been the media response? And how was the president's response and the administration's response viewed by the media then? Never mind that there were two completely incompetent politicians sitting in the offices of mayor of New Orleans and governor of Louisiana at the time, the liberals in congress and the media none the less went after President Bush and his administration like hyenas tearing at a dead carcass over 'his failures" in the aftermath of Katrina.

Now, fast forward five years and make a comparison between what happened then and how the media covered it, versus the potentially greatest disaster to ever strike this nation (currently in progress) and how they are covering that.

The only response I have seen from the president or his administration so far, is for Obama to make speeches and promises and then aim his threats of accountability at the oil companies. Both the president and his key lieutenants in congress, have berated BP and promised full investigations, while bringing to a complete halt all present and future off shore exploration, but aside from that? What has been done to address what has been going on for five weeks now in the Gulf.

So far, All that I have seen is that someone in the administration opened the door on Obama's magic bus and pushed U.S. Department of the Interior’s Mineral Management Service head Chris Oynes under the bus.

Was there any roar or outrage heard from the media over Mr. Oynes failings as the head of that department? Did the media even quiver when it became apparent that the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Mineral Management Service, was the one responsible for conducting safety inspections on all off shore drilling rigs? Or that the commander in chief has been all but mute on the subject since the first explosion?

Sounds of crickets chirping.......

No, friends and neighbors, absolutely nothing has been done by this administration to intervene and stop the madness that is pumping thousands of gallons of life killing crude oil by the day into the gulf and ultimately into the demise of our nation's economy. And the only people apparently doing less to stop the catastrophe than the White House are BP and it's management.

I like all Americans, have watched and waited for over a month now for some form of solution to be applied to stopping and cleaning up this spill. During that time, I have waited three weeks to see the outcome of some super dome of concrete that was manufactured to be lifted into place and supposedly become a cap over the well, only to see that supposedly fail once it was applied.

It reportedly failed because BP said that the cap was forming ice crystals inside the cap and thus preventing them from pumping the once capped oil to the surface. Hello! Anyone else see a problem with that thinking? BP's only other alternative is to drill a parallel well to shut this one off and that will take three to four months. Meanwhile, they are collectively scratching their asses and trying to figure out how to stop it in such a fashion, as to allow them to continue to pump oil from it!

So here is the deal. They could cap the well with their concrete dome now? But to do so would prevent them from harvesting any oil from the well until some point down the road when their parallel well goes on line.

The sound of more crickets chirping in Washington and in the media....

Meanwhile, BP is flying in tons of chemical 'dispersant' daily and bombing the oil slicks in an attempt to 'disperse' the oil. So I have a question, "where does this oil go and what happens to it once it is dispersed?" I mean it has to go somewhere right? Or is this the equivalent of sweeping dust under the rug while the lump in the rug grows larger by the day.

And as I have already noted, neither the president or anyone in his administration is doing anything to even inquire with BP on it's progress, much less why they have bragged that they could easily stop a breech sixty times worse than this, but to date, they haven't been able to stop a breech sixty times less that what they claim they are capable of stopping.

And the band plays on. And Obama's EPA yesterday told BP that they wanted them to discontinue use of the dispersant because it is toxic, to which BP responded that they were continuing to use it, because it was the best one on the market. In other words, we aren't listening. (and yes, it is now Obama's EPA).

That attitude sounds strikingly similar to what these tin horn dictators have been getting away with ever since Obama set foot in the White House. No one is listening to him other than his 'in the hip pocket media' and they are fawning over every breath that escapes his lips or falls from his teleprompter. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is laughing.

Several million gallons of oil have already gummed up one of the most beautiful oceans on the planet and after over a month, nothing has been done to stop it. And now that oil is coming ashore in the marshlands of Louisiana, there is still nothing being done. And it will come ashore all along the gulf coast in the months to come. And as it does, it will not only kill fish and wildlife, but it will kill livelihoods for a generation to come.

And where is the media and where is the accountability that our forefathers entrusted them with over two hundred years ago? Who speaks for America, and who is speaking for who right now, as it concerns this administration and big oil and what is being allowed to happen and the collusion that is apparent.

If George Bush were still in the White house, there would be non stop wall to wall coverage on every channel and in every paper in America. But the fact that the media has their political and ideological idol in the White House, completely strips them of any ability or desire to be even critical of this president's failures and this catastrophe which is happening on 'his watch.'

There have been a number of proposals put forth to contain the oil, but as usual, those involved are more concerned with who gets the credit and who makes the money off the deal, than they are in saving the Gulf or the livelihoods there. In the end, the clock continues to tick and the oil continues to spew, while BP attempts to find an answer that will allow them to pump the oil while they are containing it. And it is rapidly reaching the point where the only option left, will be for the government (the military) to step in and plant a nuclear device over the well and detonate it to end this disaster.

And once that happens two things should be noted. First that we waited too long and the damage done will take centuries to undo. Secondly, that the Obama administration succeeded in killing two energy resources in the period of one catastrophe. Because once we have to go nuclear to stop this thing, that will be the end of our nuclear energy options also.

So as you sit and enjoy you Sunday morning coffee, contemplate the realities unfolding daily as this disaster continues. Then, stop and take note of who was in the White House when it happened, and what's (not) been done since and how your entrusted vanguards of democracy and freedom, (the media) have once again let you down.

Shakespeare once lamented...."the first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers." (Henry VI part 2)

I say, Shakespeare obviously never met a journalist or a politician. Or else that line would have read completely differently.

Just below the surface America's weakness is clearly visible

What lies just below the surface, can often times be a deadly reality. As the South Koreans recently learned when one of their ships was mysteriously sunk in the middle of the night while patrolling in their own waters.

It wasn't as if they didn't know what had happened immediately, but they immediately began to deny and downplay what they knew to be the truth about the attack and the sinking. Which begs the question in any reasoned mind.....'why would the South Koreans be so quick to attempt to brush past and deny the truth?'

If you ask me, it is because they know what their benefactors response will be. America has held treaty with the South since 1953 when the cease fire was first bartered between them and their communist cousins, but the war has never really ended. Surely, there have been incursions and treaty violations numerous times over the past sixty odd years, even soldiers on both sides killed from time to time. America has even lost soldiers to random acts of violence across the border, but never has either side spontaneously killed forty six of the other sides people.

And the question begs asking, why having witnessed an unprovoked attack against it's navy and it's sovereignty, have the South Koreans remained utterly mute in the defense of their dead. (and why has America completely ignored the specifically aimed provocation.)

Salvage crews have already raised the sunken naval ship and recovered the pieces of a torpedo that was clearly of North Korean origins. And only having produced the evidence weeks after the fact, has the American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had anything at all to say about the incident. And of course the president has had even less to say.But now it appears the president has ordered some perfunctory saber rattling.

I suspect that the South Koreans have been utterly mute in defense of the reality that they know stalks their tenable existence to the south of their enemy. They realize that regardless of the American military presence on their soil, that the American threats and promises of defense against their communist neighbor, are nothing more than a straw man symbolic of what use to be the reality, rather than what is the reality now.

And Kim Jong and the rest of Asia are waiting patiently and watching and smiking and threatening more. The Chinese have to be laughing up their sleeve at America and its sophomore socialist regime. They may be our bankers and hold the keys to our mortgages?. But the then again, the Chinese have their own economic problems to worry about.

Problems that can only be resolved by their absorbing other entities in Asia. And first on their list is Taiwan. The Chinese have spent sixty five years patiently waiting for the moment in time that they knew would ultimately arrive. That moment when the great western giant would once again fall asleep or become so aged and fat, as to no longer be a real threat to their own imperial ambitions, much less the meanderings of the demented little communist dictator Kim Jong.

Of course it has not gone un-noticed by many other nations around the world, that during the latter days of those last six decades, the Chinese were feeding the wanton gluttony of America and plying their goods to the obese death of their once unbeatable enemy.

So yes, as Hillary Clinton does her dance before the UN and in the media, little will be resolved beyond chest beating and salutations. There will be no actions taken against North Korea for an open act of war against the south. Which means that at some point in the very near future, the little tin dick Kim Jong Il will once again poke the great beast and bait the dragon (America)once again in it's lair. (just as his own benefactors the Chinese have told him to). And the Iranians and other will also take note.

And once again there will be no response from the once great nation across the pacific when the next attack comes. For we as a nation are leaderless and at the fate of a Fabian socialist regime that is being controlled and steered by true Marxist from the shadows. So wait and watch America. Look for the bright glows in the west as the great dragon of Asia moves forward and all but dares their adversary and enemy to the east to even condemn their actions or those of their puppets.

Someone once said 'never bring a knife to a gun battle.' I fear that our inventory of weapons is far more bleak now than we ever imagined. We as a nation when called upon to defend either ourselves or our friends, have been reduced to using the weapons of hollow words and empty promises. We as a nation no longer challenge our enemies, we merely implicate them and call for sanctions. And the worst of it? Our enemies know that we are now no more than the great toothless beast that once roared.

The Symptom of What's Ailing America

The Symptom of What's Ailing America

Think about this, America...

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.”

“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

Got that in email earlier today. Nuf said IMO.

A Gestapo Union Anarchist Crime

Strong language? Maybe so, but what else do you call it when the police are in collusion with thugs and union hoodlums. This is absolutely unbelievable.

D.C. Metro Police Escorted SEIU Protesters to Bank Of America Executive’s Home

The family of Greg Baer, Bank of America executive, is located in a jurisdiction protected by the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD), which responded promptly to a disturbance call from his neighborhood last weekend.

According to Corporal Dan Friz, an MCPD spokesperson in Rockville, Maryland, the department received a disturbance call from one of Baer’s neighbors at 4:10 pm last Sunday. Four MCPD units arrived at Baer’s Greenville Rd. address at 4:15 pm. At least two Metropolitan Police Department units from the nearby District of Columbia were already at the scene when they arrived.

Why? Because police cars attached to the Washington MPD’s Civil Disturbance Unit had escorted the SEIU protesters’ buses to Baer’s home. Such cross-jurisdictional escort activity is not uncommon for both departments according to Friz and Metro Police Department spokesperson Officer Eric Frost. Still, the District police did not inform their colleagues of what was about to happen in one of their Maryland neighborhoods.

That's right......the "Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department sent two of their patrol cars into another jurisdiction, to escort union thugs, intent on violating the property and civil rights of an individual.

And what has been done about it? Nothing And what will be done about it? Nothing...

And people in this country refuse to believe that we are only very small steps away from Barack Obama's brown shirt brigades? Well have a look around and smell the coffee people.

Gov. Brewer to Obama and Napolittano 'Do Your Job'

I have a sincere feeling that by the time this is over, there is going to be violence all across America. And it won't be started by so called tea baggers or militias. It will be started as a result of the drug cartels spilling across our borders and killing Americans by the thousands wholesale.

Gov. Brewer is absolutely right. Te federal government needs to do it's job, starting with this poser of a president that we have.

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." John F. Kennedy ...

And that is precisely what we have happening in this country right now IMO. And Obama and his handlers are the cause and the driving force behind it.

So Who's The Weakest Link?

This article pretty well sums up the reality of the perfect storm that is forming on our horizon. All of the 'in the know gurus' of finance are saying the same thing. It's time to take your assets and head for the hills as the flood is coming.

Whatever Germany does, the euro as we know it is dead

For Angela Merkel, leader of the eurozone's richest country, a queue is forming of high-quality adversaries. As she tips German Geld und Gut into the furnace of a rescue package for the euro, while going it alone in a misguided ban on market "manipulators", the brass-neck Chancellor has infuriated domestic voters, angered her EU partners (in particular the French) and invited the so-called wolf pack of global traders to do its worst.

In one respect, Mrs Merkel is right: "The euro is in danger… if the euro fails, then Europe fails." What she has not yet admitted publicly is that the main cause of the single currency's peril appears beyond her control and therefore her impetuous response to its crisis of confidence is doomed to fail.

The euro has many flaws, but its weakest link is Greece, whose fundamental problem is that for years it spent too much, earned too little and plugged the gap by borrowing in order to enjoy a rich man's lifestyle. It flouted EU rules on the limits to budget deficits; its national accounts were a moussaka of minced statistics, topped with a cheesy sauce of jiggery-pokery.

By any legitimate measure, Greece was unworthy of eurozone membership. That it achieved card-carrying status was down to the sleight-of-hand skills of its Brussels fixers and the acquiescence of central bank bean-counters. Now we know the truth, jet-hosing it with yet more debt makes no sense. Another dose of funny money will delay but not extinguish the need for austerity.

What remains to be see IMO, is who or what will be the catalyst that sets all the dominoes to collapsing globally. Many have said that Greece is the lynch pin. Maybe so, but probably only because the Greeks have been singled out as the weakest in the herd. Certainly the Greeks are not alone in their spend thrift socialist ways.

The French are in far worse shape 'truth be known' IMO and the Brits are right up there with the, The bottom line, all of them have been pursuing the American model of tax and spend and borrow into oblivion. and now the tab has come due.

The problem is, these EU countries that depend upon the Euro as their sole currency? They have absolutely nothing to fall back on. They can't do like America has done and continues to do. they can't simply print more money. And in the end, once the collapse begins, it will be 'every man for himself.'

Wait until Wall Street figures out (admits) that the Chinese have been cooking their books and they are in worse shape that we are in reality. Wait until that reality settles in on world markets.

That's right, the Chinese? Our biggest bankers? They have been financing our hollow economy with their own. The Chinese topped out about ten years ago and they have been keeping their own version of the floating crap game afloat by nothing short of book keeping that would make Enron's best proud.

Yes, it's coming people and it may be here a lot sooner than even the best minds of finance have ever dreamed or imagined.

So who's the weakest link? Who will trigger it? I'd say simply watch who the herd offers up as sacrifice. then step back and watch as the rest of them slide into the same sink hole pf socialism that they have been trying to appease.

Birds of a feather?

Rodent scurries by as Obama lauds Wall Street vote

WASHINGTON – In his battle with the titans of Wall Street, President Barack Obama almost got upstaged by a rat.

But he didn't even seem to notice. Assuming that's what it was, scurrying in front of his podium Thursday in a sun-drenched Rose Garden.

Obama had just begun an afternoon statement to reporters lauding the end of a Senate filibuster on his financial overhaul plan when some kind of rodent — opinions differ on which — dashed out of the bushes to his right, just outside the Oval Office.

As photographers snapped away, the critter trundled straight past the gray podium with the presidential seal and made a bee-line for another set of bushes to Obama's left.

It's not clear if the president could even see the streaker, but he didn't show any reaction. And he concluded his statement minutes later, returning to his office without answering a few shouted questions on other topics.

Once he was safely inside the Oval Office, a fierce debate erupted among the photographers and reporters who'd witnessed the dash. Was it a rat or a mouse? Or maybe a mole, or a vole, or some other kind of related creature.

In fact, this wasn't the first time a rodent's been spied in the White House, or even the Rose Garden.
So, I googled "Obama rat" in google images....

Somethings are simply priceless.

Sweet Irony

The is a certain irony to this report in my opinion.

Students wishing to meet the president during his visit to their graduation commencement, must prove that they are citizens to come with in arms reach of the president. Yet to become president? Apparently none of that applies.

Obama may personally greet each graduate: Kalamazoo Central seniors to fill out paperwork for Secret Service

The White House appears to be laying the groundwork for President Barack Obama to shake the hand of each senior at Kalamazoo Central High School’s commencement ceremony next month.

Seniors are being asked to provide their birthdates, Social Security numbers and citizen status to the Secret Service so background checks could be performed. Such a check is required for anyone who gets within an arm’s length of the president, students were told at their senior breakfast Friday.

Obama has never proven that he is a US citizen, nor will he ever be required to.

Did someone say boycott?

I believe this is fitting. And I believe that it need not be a threat, but rather a promise. Power Play Over Immigration Law

An Arizona utility commissioner said he's willing to pull the plug on Los Angeles if the city goes through with a boycott of his state.

In a letter to the city of LA, a member of Arizona's power commission said he would ask Arizona utility companies to cut off the power supply to Los Angeles. LA gets about 25 percent of its power from Arizona.

"That is one commissioner who has that idea -- whether he can do that or not is another idea," said LA Councilman Dennis Zine. "They are the ones who have to make the move, not us."

The commissioner's power grid play is in response to the city's approval of a resolution directing city staff to consider which contracts with Arizona can be terminated.

I say? Sounds like a plan to me. LA continues to want to be stupid and play hardball with social politics? Then let them reap the whirlwind of benefit they have created.

Here's part Arizona Corporation Commission member Gary Pierce's letter to the mayor:

If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation.

I am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona’s economy.
The full text was sent to the blog Hot Air.

Good for him, I'll certainly buy that approach and so will a majority of Americans

Something these star dazed meglamaniacs in the land of fruit and nuts are constantly missing? Is that the rest of the country has far less interest in and charity for LA than these geeked out twirps and their La Raza buddies could imagine.

They don't want to do business with Arizona? I say fine, let them get their power from Mexico.

Christmas Comes Early in Pennsylvania

Sestak Defeats Specter in Pennsylvania Democratic

Rep. Joe Sestak sent Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter into retirement Tuesday with a stunning come-from-behind victory in the the Democratic primary.
Specter becomes the third incumbent member of Congress in two weeks to lose his job, after Republican Sen. Bob Bennett lost the GOP nomination at the party's Utah convention and Democratic Rep. Alan Mollohan lost a primary in West Virginia.

It couldn't have happened to a nicer fellow if you ask me. It is about time that these scum suckers got the message and the people outed them and sent them packing. Arlen Spector is just the first of many RINO's and democrats that are going to be shown the door this season and I for one say "good riddance."

Now, let's hope for the same fate for John McCain and Lindsey Graham and the others who have sold their souls and betrayed the people who elected them.

The White house version of don't ask don't tell.

Napolitano Admits She Hasn't Read Arizona Immigration Law in 'Detail'

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano admitted Monday that she has not read the controversial Arizona immigration law even though she's gone on television to criticize it, and continued to assert that it was "bad law enforcement law."

The admission comes after Attorney General Eric Holder, who earlier warned the law could create a "slippery slope" toward racial profiling, told a House committee last week that he had not read the bill either. On Tuesday, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said he too had not read the bill, even as he defended diplomatic official Michael Posner for comparing the law to Chinese human rights violations.
Well there you have it friends and neighbors, looks like the president's most favored don't ask don't tell policy, involves an issue and policy near and dear to his heart. And apparently near and dear to the heart of his attorney general and his homeland security director.

Anyone want to take house odd that if you could get the president to tell the truth? That he would have to admit that he too hasn't read the bill that he and everyone in his administration have been criticizing?

This is who is leading this nation now. A Fabian socialist president and a gaggle of assembled ideologues, ranging from the garden variety enamoured socialist, to out right Marxist. And not that many people in America seem to care one way or another.

The bottom line, Obama and his entire administration have railed against the Arizona law since it was signed into law a month ago. And yet not the first one of them has read it. Not event he attorney general who has gone on record and stated that he will file suit to stop it.

So you tell me, is that not a classic example of 'don't ask don;t tell?' Because until that one reporter decided to ask that question last week of Eric Holder? No one had bothered to determine anything other than the political persuasion of those involved when it came to Arizona's new law.

For those interested, below is a link to the pdf file of the law in it's entirety.

I can say something that apparently no one in the Obama administration can, or at least are willing to admit to. And that is that I have read the law.

A troubling Supreme Court decision

Supreme Court Looks at Sex Offender Sentences

WASHINGTON, D.C.--The Supreme Court dealt with an issue that resonates in communities across the country--what to do about sex offenders after they have served their sentences.

The Court's seven-to-two decision upheld a Federal law allowing the Federal government to continue to incarcerate sex offenders after they have served their sentences if they are deemed too dangerous to release.

Ernie Allen of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children said, "This is for the worst of the worst, and it is also for those offenders who are not just evil and criminally inclined but are mentally defective."

However, it is state governments, not the Feds, that incarcerate most sex offenders.

Only 20 states have laws that allow authorities to continue to lock up the most dangerous criminals after their sentences are served. Most don't do it because of cost which is about 64,000 dollars per inmate, per year.

This could prove to be a very unsettling decision by the Supreme court. While most everyone will gladly applaud the intentions of the law as stated, 'against sexual predators and pedophiles,' the simple reality remains, a ruling such as this will stand as what is known as 'precedent,' which can lead to an expansion of the court's interpretation as it applies to other laws later on down the road.

And there in lies the danger IMO.

If it were up to me, this would not be an issue, as all convicted of pedophilia would immediately be sentenced to death, thus making it 'end of story' scenario. But it is not up to me. Or for that matter, the communities where these diseased animals are operating and preying on children.

There is no cure for pedophilia IMO short of death. So it is a waste of time on the surface of the argument to attempt to justify either imprisonment of them or so called rehabilitation. And the facts and documented case histories bear that reality out. The recidivism rate is almost 100% for pedophiles.

So we have arrived at a conundrum and the Supreme Court's apparent resolution for the dilemma? Is to completely set aside the 4th amendment to the constitution and claim that the bill of rights only applies when they want it to. Either that, or when they can claim justification for setting it aside. (as they have done in this instance.

Stay tuned, as with the crew presently in Washington, I see this ruling about to be expanded upon and tested to the limits of reason. And everyone should keep in mind, that while we can now apparently keep bonafide US citizens detained indefinitely if they are sexual predators (based on this ruling)? Our president and his attorney general and others, say that the same reading of the law cannot be extended to enemy combatants and those presently being held in Guantanamo Bay as terrorist threats to America.

Strange times we live in.

Ted Turner. "The new Pat Robertson?"

You decide.

But as for me? I still can't get it out of my head that this is a man that married Jane Fonda. And then divorced her because she supposedly found religion (heavy emphasis on supposedly).

Before that, he was giving a billion dollars to the UN, while people here in America went for want.

And now he is telling us that 'while he is not an overly religious man?' This may be God's way of telling us not to drill in the gulf.

Somehow? I don't believe that God would use Ted Turner as a representative for one of his burning bush moments.

Stolen Valor (Redux)

I'll allow this to speak for itself. Suffice it to say that this man makes me sick.

Candidate’s Words on Vietnam Service Differ From History

At a ceremony honoring veterans and senior citizens who sent presents to soldiers overseas, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut rose and spoke of an earlier time in his life.

“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”

There was one problem: Mr. Blumenthal, a Democrat now running for the United States Senate, never served in Vietnam. He obtained at least five military deferments from 1965 to 1970 and took repeated steps that enabled him to avoid going to war, according to records.

The deferments allowed Mr. Blumenthal to complete his studies at Harvard; pursue a graduate fellowship in England; serve as a special assistant to The Washington Post’s publisher, Katharine Graham; and ultimately take a job in the Nixon White House.

In 1970, with his last deferment in jeopardy, he landed a coveted spot in the Marine Reserve, which virtually guaranteed that he would not be sent to Vietnam. He joined a unit in Washington that conducted drills and other exercises and focused on local projects, like fixing a campground and organizing a Toys for Tots drive.

Many politicians have faced questions over their decisions during the Vietnam War, and Mr. Blumenthal, who is seeking the seat being vacated by Senator Christopher J. Dodd, is not alone in staying out of the war.

But what is striking about Mr. Blumenthal’s record is the contrast between the many steps he took that allowed him to avoid Vietnam, and the misleading way he often speaks about that period of his life now, especially when he is speaking at veterans’ ceremonies or other patriotic events.

Sometimes his remarks have been plainly untrue, as in his speech to the group in Norwalk. At other times, he has used more ambiguous language, but the impression left on audiences can be similar.

In an interview on Monday, the attorney general said that he had misspoken about his service during the Norwalk event and might have misspoken on other occasions. “My intention has always been to be completely clear and accurate and straightforward, out of respect to the veterans who served in Vietnam,” he said.

But an examination of his remarks at the ceremonies shows that he does not volunteer that his service never took him overseas. And he describes the hostile reaction directed at veterans coming back from Vietnam, intimating that he was among them.

In 2003, he addressed a rally in Bridgeport, where about 100 military families gathered to express support for American troops overseas. “When we returned, we saw nothing like this,” Mr. Blumenthal said. “Let us do better by this generation of men and women.”

At a 2008 ceremony in front of the Veterans War Memorial Building in Shelton, he praised the audience for paying tribute to troops fighting abroad, noting that America had not always done so.

“I served during the Vietnam era,” he said. “I remember the taunts, the insults, sometimes even physical abuse.”

Mr. Blumenthal, 64, is known as a brilliant lawyer who likes to argue cases in court and uses language with power and precision. He is also savvy about the news media and attentive to how he is portrayed in the press.

But the way he speaks about his military service has led to confusion and frequent mischaracterizations of his biography in his home state newspapers. In at least eight newspaper articles published in Connecticut from 2003 to 2009, he is described as having served in Vietnam.

The New Haven Register on July 20, 2006, described him as “a veteran of the Vietnam War,” and on April 6, 2007, said that the attorney general had “served in the Marines in Vietnam.” On May 26, 2009, The Connecticut Post, a Bridgeport newspaper that is the state’s third-largest daily, described Mr. Blumenthal as “a Vietnam veteran.” The Shelton Weekly reported on May 23, 2008, that Mr. Blumenthal “was met with applause when he spoke about his experience as a Marine sergeant in Vietnam.”

And the idea that he served in Vietnam has become such an accepted part of his public biography that when a national outlet, Slate magazine, produced a profile of Mr. Blumenthal in 2000, it said he had “enlisted in the Marines rather than duck the Vietnam draft.”

It does not appear that Mr. Blumenthal ever sought to correct those mistakes.

In the interview, he said he was not certain whether he had seen the stories or whether any steps had been taken to point out the inaccuracies.

“I don’t know if we tried to do so or not,” he said. He added that he “can’t possibly know what is reported in all” the articles that are written about him, given the large number of appearances he makes at military-style events.

He said he had tried to stick to a consistent way of describing his military experience: that he served as a member of the United State Marine Corps Reserve during the Vietnam era.

Asked about the Bridgeport rally, when he told the crowd, “When we returned, we saw nothing like this,” Mr. Blumenthal said he did not recall the event.

Boo Who?

Who gets booed?

Miss Oklahoma answered truthfully and was obviously supported by the audience in her answer. the audience booed the one asking the question, as they immediately recognized it as an unfair question to be asking any contestant in a beauty pageant.

Mean while. in the end, America wound up with a "predictable" Muslim winner.

Now, as my friend over on Brutally Honest noted, lets see how well that plays in the Muslim world.

Muslims to build mosque at "Ground Zero"

A Date Which Shall Live in Infamy? No....not that one. Not December 7, 1941. Certainly that was a date which shall live in infamy. So what is the date that I speak of? Could it be September 11, 2001? No, not quite, but close.

Our new date which will live in infamy, if allowed to come to pass? Will be September 11th, 2011. The tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America. And what could possible single out this date to rival those already in our history?

Read this.

Mosque madness at Ground Zero

A mosque rises over Ground Zero. And fed-up New Yorkers are crying, "No!"

A chorus of critics -- from neighbors to those who lost loved ones on 9/11 to me -- feel as if they've received a swift kick in the teeth.

Plans are under way for a Muslim house of worship, topped by a 13-story cultural center with a swimming pool, in a building damaged by the fuselage of a jet flown by extremists into the World Trade Center.

The opening date shall live in infamy: Sept. 11, 2011. The 10th anniversary of the day a hole was punched in the city's heart.

Then watch this.....

That's right folks. They intend to build a 'monster mosque' right across the street from 'ground zero' in New york and they intend to dedicated it on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on this nation.

A rally against the mosque is planned for June 6, D-Day, by the human-rights group Stop Islamicization of America. Executive director Pamela Geller said, "What could be more insulting and humiliating than a monster mosque in the shadow of the World Trade Center buildings that were brought down by an Islamic jihad attack? Any decent American, Muslim or otherwise, wouldn't dream of such an insult. It's a stab in the eye of America."

Called Cordoba House, the mosque and center is the brainchild of the American Society for Muslim Advancement. Executive director Daisy Khan insists it's staying put.

"For us, it's a symbol, a platform that will give voice to the silent majority of Muslims who suffer at the hands of extremists. A center will show that Muslims will be part of rebuilding lower Manhattan," said Khan, adding that Cordoba will be open to everyone.

"We were pleased to see that the community welcomed us as an asset to lower Manhattan," she added. "The community board approved it."

What kind of morons are there on this 'community board?' And do these Muslims who are sponsoring and financing this travesty actually believe, that the rest of America won't notice? Or that we will buy into this trumped up tripe of an explanation of justification?

I think not.

Go and read the entire piece then consider writing to your representatives in congress and the senate and letting them know, this will not stand. America will not have it's nose rubbed in Islamic excrement. Ground Zero is hallowed ground.

Matthews blames Cheney for the spil and CNN calls this 'journalism'

I have to admit, watching a media political hack like Chris Matthews, who is a master of his propagandist genre of pseudo journalism, gives me feelings that I have never quite had before. And watching him weave his web of sinister connection to Dick Cheney in this staged piece of tripe? Well it's exquisite! Almost like toying with an hang nail and waiting for that one glorious moment of release.

I wonder, are those tingling sensations running up my leg as I watch the master crafter of journalism, a common symptom of shock and awe over the sheer piety of Cris' presentations? Or is this malady a common occurrence in people who over indulge the arcane and idiotic in our society.

Perhaps I will fire off an email and ask Chris, as I hear that he has experience is such matters.

The Coming Race War in America, in a theater near you soon.

I blogged on this film about a week ago and the dangers that it represents, but since then, there have been new revelations about how this film was produced and who paid for it. And the reviews continue to point to this film as an intentional catalyst to create race riots in America.

‘Machete‘ has fallen into controversy, and it’s still months away from its September release. 20th Century Fox, which won a ‘bidding war’ to distribute the film, pulled Rodriguez’ fiery “Illegal” trailer from the web shortly after its special “Cinco de Mayo” message created a storm of controversy and fueled attacks, including one from its sister subsidiary Fox News. Fox News, in turn, pulled the critical article from circulation, entitled “Violent Movie Declares War on Arizona for Immigration Law.”

Worst of all, Robert Rodriguez’ incendiary race film ‘Machete‘ was made, in part, with help from tax incentives and location access provided by the Texas Film Commission, a division of Governor Rick Perry’s Office. A spokesperson from the organization confirmed that Rodriguez has indeed applied for funding.

The winner in Afghanistan may be blurred, but the loser is McChrystal clear

McChrystal Sees Progress, but 'Nobody Is Winning' Afghan War Yet

In a blunt assessment of the war in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal declared in a TV interview Thursday that "nobody is winning," though he also pointed to progress in stopping the momentum of insurgents.

So the news is? "We aren't winning.....but we are doing real well at stopping their momentum. OK, I am a bit confused here general, so please bear with me while I attempt to absorb your line of reasoning. What you are telling us (and our enemies by the way) is that we are not winning. So......if we aren't winning? What does that mean? As I am a bit cloudy on the intricacies of modern warfare. In my limited understanding of competitions, (even in war) when one side isn't winning, that means that the only other alternative is that they are losing. Unless of course you are prepared to declare stalemate. Which in this instance doesn't appear to be the case.

And when we here at home asked you about progress in the war? We are told what you think, not what you know.

"I think I would be prepared to say nobody is winning, at this point," McChrystal said. "Where the insurgents, I think, felt that they had momentum a year ago, felt that they were making clear progress, I think that's stopped."

Now it is the U.S. and Afghan forces that have "made a lot of progress," he said.

"I think the insurgency is serious. And it's serious because it has a relative reach around the country ... so it can bring a lot of violence on the Afghan people. It's also not popular."

How about telling us what you 'know' general.

I have to be candid here. I have never liked or agreed with the appointment of General McChrystal as the commander in charge of Afghanistan. And one of the main reasons why, deals specifically with how he came to be the appointed commander. The president simply fired the then existing commander and brought in McChrystal, as McChrystal was obviously intended to be a yes man to this administration. And that fact has been shown and demonstrated clearly for over a year now.

Absolutely no progress has been made against the Taliban in Afghanistan and General McChrystal has repeatedly (yes repeatedly) been quoted as saying that the US is at best not winning the war and at worst losing it. And here once again, we have the president's general yammering about what he thinks and dancing on the head of an obvious political pin.

The general 'thinks' that the insurgency is serious? You have got to be frigging kidding me! These are the quoted remarks and responses of America's general on the ground in Afghanistan? Is there any wonder why we are not winning this war? Is there any wonder why our enemies are emboldened by this president and his general? Is there any question why our commanders in Afghanistan are now considering issuing "courageous restraint" medals to our soldiers and marines for risking their own lives by not engaging the enemy?

Once again, the heresy of this administration and the military leadership purposely put into place by this administration to lose this war becomes blindingly clear.

And lest we forget, this is the same general that having been appointed by the president to take command in Afghanistan, has had less than one hour of face time with the commander in chief over the past year. If memory serves, The general was brought on board the president's plane last year for a meeting that lasted less than forty minutes and was obviously aimed at chastising the general for speaking out of turn as it concerned America's policy in Afghanistan.

And from that time to this, the only thing that has been reflected by this administrations policy and this general's rules of engagement, have been the casualty counts.

Yes America, we are losing this war and we are losing it intentionally, just as we did a generation ago in Vietnam. Only this time? The consequences will be visited on all of us and in the very near future.

The Politics of Homosexuality in Illinois Are Revealed

May 13, 2010: Suzan Hebson, assistant superintendent of Highland Park, Ill., sits in her office.

School Official in Basketball Flap Is No Stranger to Controversy

The school official who nixed a girls' high school basketball team's planned trip to Arizona once supported a controversial program that required ninth-graders to attend a “freshman advisory” class at which gay upperclassmen shared stories of their high school experiences.

So now....the truth comes out. this isn't this individual's first trip to the circus. It seems that she is a veritable ongoing source of controversy for this school system, yet she is allowed to not only remain employed, but receive promotions on top of it.

But Hebson is no stranger to controversy. She’s been criticized for making decisions based on politics numerous times in the past.

In 2007, when she was assistant superintendent for human resources in the district, Hebson made national news for supporting an initiative at Deerfield High School that required freshman students to participate in orientation panel discussions, one of which was led by members of the school’s Straight and Gay Alliance Network. During the seminars, upperclassmen spoke to the ninth graders about a variety of topics affecting homosexual teens, including their own personal experiences -- and all students were required to sign confidentiality agreements swearing never to disclose what they heard.

Someone please explain to me how this woman was allowed to keep her job, much less be promoted to the level of a high school principle, where she is obviously carrying on with her homosexual political agenda.

(Updated)There's racial profiling? And then there is radical profiling (AKA "liberal prejudice.").

There is racial profiling and radical profiling, also known as 'liberal prejudice.' Think you know which is which? Read on and get a crash course in radical profiling and the correct way to articulate prejudice from a radicalized liberal point of view. This is what happens when we have a radicalized attorney general making decisions and publishing opinions on issues that he has absolutely no idea of and he has already arrived at conclusions on.

With anybody else? That would be immediately seized upon by mass media as an overt act of prejudice on it's face. But remember, certain privileged classes can't be prejudiced in the eyes of American media. Even when one of those members who happens to be the attorney general, calls the majority of Americans racial cowards.

Holder Admits to Not Reading Arizona's Immigration Law Despite Criticizing It

Despite repeatedly voicing concerns about Arizona's new immigration enforcement law in recent weeks and threatening to challenge it, Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday he has not yet read the law -- which is only 10 pages long.

"I have not had a chance to -- I've glanced at it," Holder said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing when asked had he read the state law cracking down on illegal immigrants.

Holder told reporters last month that he fears the new law is subject to abuse and that the Justice Department and the Homeland Security Department are in the midst of conducting a review.

The Arizona law requires local and state law enforcement to question people about their immigration status if there's reason to suspect they're in the country illegally, and makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally.

The law has sparked protests across the country, including a City Council-approved boycott of Arizona businesses by Los Angeles.But proponents deny that the law encourages racial profilng, with some saying the local controversy is a symptom of a broken federal immigration system.

Holder said last month that a number of options are under consideration, including the possibility of a court challenge.

On Thursday, Holder said he plans to read the law before reaching a decision on whether he thinks it's constitutional.

When asked by Rep.Ted Poe, R-Texas, how he could have constitutional concerns about a law he has not read, Holder said: "Well, what I've said is that I've not made up my mind. I've only made the comments that I've made on the basis of things that I've been able to glean by reading newspaper accounts, obviously, television, talking to people who are on the review panel...looking at the law."

Watch the video.....absolutely amazing! the man all but openly states that he hasn't been 'briefed' on what his opinion should be!

The trip “would not be aligned” with the school's “beliefs and values,”

There is a key phrase identifying what is really wrong with this picture. See if you can determine what is wrong at the Highland Park High School in Illinois.

Illinois School Nixes Basketball Team's Trip to Arizona Over Immigration Law

Parents in Illinois are outraged over a move by a local high school to scrap its girls basketball team's trip to Arizona over the Grand Canyon State’s new immigration law.

The Highland Park High School varsity basketball team has been selling cookies for months to raise money for a tournament in Arizona..

Now, after winning their first conference title in 26 years, the girls are being denied the opportunity to play in the tournament over safety concerns and because the trip “would not be aligned” with the school's “beliefs and values,” Assistant Superintendent Suzan Hebson told the Chicago Tribune.

Slowly, slowly catchy monkey

Kagan Argued for Government 'Redistribution of Speech'

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan said the high court should be focused on ferreting out improper governmental motives when deciding First Amendment cases, arguing that the government’s reasons for restricting free speech were what mattered most and not necessarily the effect of those restrictions on speech.

On the surface, that paragraph seems to reflect a perspective in support of the people's right of free speech. And as she continued her explanation in her paper, the same line of reasoning seemed to prevail. Until we come to this part of her thesis on free speech and what constitutes appropriate government intervention in her opinion.

And since her 'opinions' are now more than relevant, seeing as she has been nominated for the highest court in the land?

The government, she concludes, may not express its disfavor with an opinion or speaker by burdening them with restrictions or prohibitions, unless it can show that their speech is causing some type of public harm.

“The doctrine of impermissible motive, viewed in this light, holds that the government may not signify disrespect for certain ideas and respect for others through burdens on expression,” Kagan wrote. “This does not mean that the government may never subject particular ideas to disadvantage. The government indeed may do so, if acting upon neutral, harm-based reasons.”

Neutral harm based reasoning and impermissible motives? Well there is certainly a novel way of looking at freedom of speech now isn't it.

In essence what the woman said as it concerns her opinion of freedom of speech is simply this. Freedom of speech is to be protected at all costs from interventions and transgressions of the government....."unless and until it can be determined that the speech in questions is causing harm." And once that can be determined, all bets are off.

For those who have never considered the realities being put forth when listening to and watching liberals and socialist progressives wail over their own civil liberties and their own free speech issues, it is relatively simple to decipher. Their view is simple in construct....'don't do as I do, do as I say do." Or in other words, you have no right to limit my speech, simply because you disagree with it. While I on the other hand, am perfectly within my right to limit yours. All that is required is that I simply demonstrate some alleged harm by allowing you to speak.

By all means follow the link and read everything that this woman has to say concerning freedom of speech, then consider these three points.

1. Elana Kagan is a hair's breath away from being confirmed as our next Supreme Court Justice. So barring a major revelation that would immediately disqualify her in the court of public opinion, she will be confirmed.

2. Once she is confirmed, she and the three other liberal justices Breyer, Soto Mayer, and Ginsburg will be well on the way to establishing their liberal version of the first amendment and what it represents.

3. There are three other elements involved in the first amendment.

a. freedom of the press.
b. freedom of religion.
c. freedom of assembly.

So how long before these rights come under the same scrutiny by Elena Kagan? How long before these rights become subject to the same tests as those that Elena Kagan would apply to freedom of speech.

How long before freedom of religion is visited by the same liberal construct as Kagan would apply to freedom of speech. How long before the constitutional test for allowing a religion to be practiced, is determined on the basis of whether or not the practice of that religion is causing 'some type of public harm?'

And just in case you are curious? I seriously doubt that standard will be applied to any religion other than Christianity. So no, the religion of peace will be allowed to continue under the auspices of Kagan's other determining factor. And there will be no "determining of improper government motives" for wanting to prohibit intervention against the house of Islam.

And if there is any doubt where this woman stands on freedoms or for how long she has harbored these no further than this little piece on her thoughts on gun control and the right to bear arms. Apparently, we have the right to bear arms right up to the point that she feels we don't. which is most of the time.

Kagan Said She Was `Not Sympathetic' Toward Gun-Rights Claim

Elena Kagan said as a U.S. Supreme Court law clerk in 1987 that she was “not sympathetic” toward a man who contended that his constitutional rights were violated when he was convicted for carrying an unlicensed pistol.

Kagan, whom President Barack Obama nominated to the high court this week, made the comment to Justice Thurgood Marshall, urging him in a one-paragraph memo to vote against hearing the District of Columbia man’s appeal.

The man’s “sole contention is that the District of Columbia’s firearms statutes violate his constitutional right to ‘keep and bear arms,’” Kagan wrote. “I’m not sympathetic.”

Kagan, currently the U.S. solicitor general, has made few public remarks about the Constitution’s Second Amendment. The Supreme Court in 2008 ruled, in a case that overturned the District of Columbia’s handgun ban, that the Constitution protects individual gun rights.
