Step right up ladies and gentlemen! Get the next installment of the most refreshing beverage on the planet! Obama's Kool Aid! We are almost two years into the progressive democrats deal of deals and tonight our bar tender in chief is going to be pouring on the smooze and serving up the Kool Aid to America by the barrels full.
Tonight, Barack Obama, our illustrious leader and president will report back to we the people that he has achieved one of his campaign promises. He will note that he has ended the war in Iraq. All combat forces are out of the country is what he will say tonight. Meanwhile, forget about those 50,000 American troops who remain in Iraq. Those who all that has changed for them, is that their unit designations have been white washed and changed to non threatening non military designations.
Yes sir Mr. and Mrs. America, this should be a proud day and a day to rejoice for all of us. Messer Obama has ended the terrible and tragic and pointless war in Iraq and he has left behind a baby sitting force that will soon be targeted by those beloved insurgents that Obama and Pelosi and Reid seem to feel are simply misunderstood.
Have another cuppa of the juice everyone! Sit back and enjoy the yarn spinning tonight and listen to the soft murmurs of the yes we can chorus as the president explains to the American people all the great works of wonder achieved by the right kind of leadership under his tutelage.
Oh! And don't forget to completely disregard what is happening over in Afghanistan right now. 21 dead in two days? The Taliban on a rampage and young Americans being killed wholesale daily? That means nothing. Don't be distracted by ineffectual leadership and defeatist policy in Afghanistan. Our dear president in now set to embark on showing us all how it is done once "progressive democrats" get to call the plays and play at war.
And man oh man! This sure looks to be interesting as we head into the fall. I imagine everyone will be following the daily body counts with the same enthusiasm as those watching fall football. All the while knowing that regardless of how bad it gets and regardless of how many of our troops are killed? We have the greatest leader of all time piloting our ship of state right now. Right?
Almost gives you goose bumps to think about it don't it. Or is that tingling the dregs of the Kool Aid that I feel running down my leg.
Could someone say that there are dual standards being applied in Washington today? Could someone say that there are an entirely separate set of morals and values at play in Washington today? Could someone say this administration creates the rules and determines the law as it goes along each day?
Sure. Someone might say those things. But who would listen. And who would shout it from the roof tops like the media envisioned by the founding fathers who entrusted our freedom to a press that was supposed to speak up and speak out on behalf of "we the people.".
President Obama's top education official urged government employees to attend a rally that the Rev. Al Sharpton organized to counter a larger conservative event on the Mall.
"ED staff are invited to join Secretary Arne Duncan, the Reverend Al Sharpton, and other leaders on Saturday, Aug. 28, for the 'Reclaim the Dream' rally and march," began an internal e-mail sent to more than 4,000 employees of the Department of Education on Wednesday.
Sharpton created the event after Glenn Beck announced a massive Tea Party "Restoring Honor" rally at the Lincoln Memorial, where King spoke in 1963.
The Washington Examiner learned of the e-mail from a Department of Education employee who felt uncomfortable with Duncan's request.
Although the e-mail does not violate the Hatch Act, which forbids federal employees from participating in political campaigns, Education Department workers should feel uneasy, said David Boaz, executive vice president of the libertarian Cato Institute.
"It sends a signal that activity on behalf of one side of a political debate is expected within a department. It's highly inappropriate ... even in the absence of a direct threat," Boaz said. "If we think of a Bush cabinet official sending an e-mail to civil servants asking them to attend a Glenn Beck rally, there would be a lot of outrage over that."
Russ Whitehurst, director of the liberal-leaning Brookings Institution's Brown Center of Education Policy, said nothing like this happened when he was a Department of Education program director from 2001 to 2008: "Only political appointees would have been made aware of such an event and encouraged to attend."
Officially, Sharpton's event commemorated the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.
"[Conservatives] think we showed up [to vote for Barack Obama] in 2008 and that we won't show up again. But we know how to sucker-punch, and we're coming out again in 2010," Sharpton said.

As President Obama prepares to tie a bow on U.S. combat operations in Iraq, Congressional Budget Office numbers show that the total cost of the eight-year war was less than the stimulus bill passed by the Democratic-led Congress in 2009.According to CBO numbers in its Budget and Economic Outlook published this month, the cost of Operation Iraqi Freedom was $709 billion for military and related activities, including training of Iraqi forces and diplomatic operations.
The projected cost of the stimulus, which passed in February 2009, and is expected to have a shelf life of two years, was $862 billion.
The U.S. deficit for fiscal year 2010 is expected to be $1.3 trillion, according to CBO. That compares to a 2007 deficit of $160.7 billion and a 2008 deficit of $458.6 billion, according to data provided by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget.

On August 28, 1963 Martin Luther King Jr. held his historic march on Washington and then gave his now famous "I have a dream speech" on the steps of the Lincoln memorial. Crowd estimates at the time, put the crowd at between 200,000 and 300,000 people on that sultry August day.
Today in Washington, Glenn Beck summoned forth between 300,000 and 500,000 Americans to come and lay claim to their own destiny. Beck's theme was a 'religious re-birth."
I wonder.....is it possible to have a religious re-birth in present day America? Involving predominantly white Americans? Absent being called a racist and a bigot or a homophobe? Is it possible for that many white people to assemble in their nation's capitol and be heard?
Surely there were black people there today, just as suredly as there were white people there for King forty seven years ago. But can the message of today be heard above the cacaphony of shouts by those present day representatitives of the civil rights movement.
It has been rightly alluded to (The Tea Party) is a second civil rights movement in America. It is a movement to try and regain control of this nation's fate and future before it is thoroughly and completely wrecked by the present day egalitarians who are hell bent to see it destroyed.
So the question remains......Do white dreams count in America today? Or have those dreams of supposed blindness of color spoken of by King forty seven years ago, been co-opted and corrupted into an egalitarian nightmare where only people of color are counted when they rise up to be heard on the nation's mall.
Time will tell. But let it be said today for at least a while, that Glenn Beck put more people on the mall to hear his words today, than have ever been amassed there at any time before in our history. Now....let's see how the media reports that come sun up tomorrow.

I don't ever recall such a time every existing in America until now. It seems to me as if in the last couple of years since liberals and socialists in this country have seized control of the congress and the White House? That is when everything changed. That is when all this "woe is me, they are only going to use our actions as a recruiting tool for more terrorism" really began to steam roll.
So let's take the way back machine again shall we......
Five and six years ago before George W. Bush's second term was won, was when this leftist lunacy really began to reach a fever pitch with liberal lunatics like Nancy Pelosi and Ted Kennedy and John Kerry and all their leftist loon friends in Hollywood.
America was continually inundated by their rhetoric and a complicit media was more than happy to spread their bile and vitriol and smear it across all forms of media in this country. I can still remember watching Pelosi and Biden and the rest all sitting in front of the cameras clucking like a bunch of lunatic hens about how our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan were only going to embolden Al Qaida and the extremist insurgents and Iraq was only going to end up like Vietnam. Nothing was to be gained from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, aside from their being used as a recruiting tools for more extremism and violence against America.
Anyone else remember those days and those remarks and those responsible for those remarks?
Now step back on your time machine and come back to the present day and have a look at what we are now witnessing as it concerns the 9/11 mosque that has been in the news for the past few months. Not only do we have a mayor of New York who has lost his mind? But the president of the United States is a coconspirator in the efforts to see this travesty built in the shadow of where close to 3000 of our countrymen were murdered by extremist Muslims.
And now we are supposed to apologise and kiss their asses on our failure to bow before their god and their godless religion and accept the fact that if we don't? That will just be more justification fro them to wage more of their holy war against us?
I am sorry folks, but I not only am not buying into that crap, but I am here to tell you that if other Americans do, then they deserve what will be visited upon them by these literal godless heathens of Islam.
Mosque Protests, Rhetoric Feed Jihadists' Fire
Islamic radicals are seizing on protests against a planned Islamic community center near Manhattan's Ground Zero and anti-Muslim rhetoric elsewhere as a propaganda opportunity and are stepping up anti-U.S. chatter and threats on their websites.
One jihadist site vowed to conduct suicide bombings in Florida to avenge a threatened Koran burning, while others predicted an increase in terrorist recruits as a result of such actions.
"By Allah, the wars are heated and you Americans are the ones who…enflamed it," says one such posting. "By Allah you will be the first to taste its flames."
White House homeland security adviser John Brennan told reporters Friday that he had seen no evidence that the debate over the proposed Islamic center in Lower Manhattan, other mosque protests or the planned Koran burning had affected U.S. counterterrorism efforts.
Forget about all the supposed moderation and all the peace and love of Islam. I haven't seen it and I don't expect to. While what I do expect, is to see my country attacked again and in the very near future. As I also expect to see Iraq now implode into a civil war that will end with Iran being the masters over Iraq for the foreseeable future.
I also see our apologist in chief continuing to apologise and placate the raging Muslim masses until at least one if not several of America's major cities lie in ashes or so thorough contaminated with nuclear fallout, as to render them uninhabitable for generations.
And in the mean time? I am supposed to join in and cower while my nation quivers in the shadow of possibly offending Muslims who want to desecrate all that should be sacred around the area of ground zero? I am supposed to ignore who did this and who is responsible? and I am supposed to kiss the feet and beg forgiveness from those who hands still drip with the blood of my countrymen?
Can I say here what my answer to Islam and the people's of the Muslim middle east and those here who have infiltrated and infected my country?
Let's just say? There won't be any apologies from this American, to any pack of insidious Muslim interlopers trying to pass themselves off as being righteously or justifiably offended by those Americans who see them for precisely who they are.
No sir! No apologies and a word of warning to those elected officials who find sympathy for and lend comfort to this nation's enemies. The time is coming when your time is up. The time is coming when Americans are coming to take back their nation and rid it of the disease that egalitarianism has become in this country.
Beware, your days are numbered. We the people will be heard. The time has come when enough is enough!

Most Americans know what religion is and what is represented by the various faiths, the same as most Americans know what media spin is when they see it. To see these either practiced so lamely by this administration is appalling to say the least IMO.
This simple facts:
If you are born a Christian to a Christian father and mother? Then you are a Christian. The same for Jews and Muslims. The only thing that changes those realities are the actions of the child as he/she progresses through life.
And as Franklin Graham has duly noted.......
On the heels of a new poll suggesting that nearly one in five Americans incorrectly believes that President Obama is a Muslim, one of the nation's most prominent evangelical leaders has weighed in with a seemingly lukewarm endorsement of the president's Christian faith.
So.....nearly one in five Americans 'incorrectly' believes? What is it that they incorrectly believe? Is it the fact that they don't accept the media spin and they choose to believe their own eyes and their own knowledge and education on the subject? Personally I opt for the latter myself and seeing as I am one of the incorrect twenty percent, I believe that I can clearly see and understand everyone else's perspectives on the matter.
It's not that my facts are wrong, it's simply that I choose not to drink the revisionist Kool Aid and I choose not to buy into the heresy represented as truth by the White House and the media. The other facts in the matter are pretty clear cut to me also.
Not only was Barack Hussein Obama born a Muslim to a Muslim father and to a converted Muslim mother, but he was raised and educated in that faith as a boy by both his mother and his step father. Therefore, by the canons of the Islamic faith, Barack Obama is a Muslim and that is why the Muslim world views him as one of their own. They know this to be true just as assuredly as Barack Obama knows this and just as assuredly as any clear thinking American familiar with the faith and it's practices knows this.
But there is the sticky part of his supposed Christian observances and membership in the revered prophet the honorable reverend Jeremiah Wright's church for twenty years. I suspect as many other clear thinking but wrong Americans do on this topic, that the real Muslim world in the middle east? Well they are just giving their Muslim brother a hall pass on his presence commentaries and indulgences. As any 'right thinking' Muslim knows, those who are born into Islam and practice it, then subsequently abandon the faith? Well they become apostates and under Sharia law they are to be put to death. Along with any other infidels that a true peace loving Muslim might encounter.
So don't look upon Barack Hussein Obama as a Muslim. Look upon him rather as a 'born again Muslim.' A Muslim born to the faith of Muslim blood and Muslim father. As one who learned the Koran and the Muslim prayers as a boy and who can still recite them and has referred to them as a beautiful sound. Look upon him as a man who supposedly abandoned that faith and supposedly embraced Christianity, yet is allowed to slip effortlessly between the two worlds and operate in both.
Look again at Franklin Graham's worlds
The Rev. Franklin Graham waded into the discussion with his own controversial explanation of why people wrongly believe the president is a Muslim. Graham, who prayed with Obama in a session with his father, Billy Graham, earlier this year, was asked whether he has any doubts about Obama's self-avowed Christian faith.And besides, when the controversy arose again last week in the media, a White House spokesman quickly put aside all fears by pointing out that the president was most definitely a Christian. And the proof was in the fact that he prayed everyday.
"I think the president's problem is that he was born a Muslim, his father was a Muslim. The seed of Islam is passed through the father like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother. He was born a Muslim, his father gave him an Islamic name," Graham told CNN's
A comforting thought I must admit, but i have one question. Where is it exactly that this president does his praying? It strikes me? that he has spent more time chasing golf balls around since he took office , than he has spent on bended knee. But then again, that's just me. After all....I am a product of my environment and I tend to watch and believe what I see represented and repeated.
So I guess if I were to ever run into the president on the off chance? I should probably just say "Whasup Bro? and bless you!"
Maybe not. Maybe I will stick with what I know will work.
Mean while, the rest of the nation is left to wonder and watch and worry. But all is not amiss. Our dear president is off for another ten days of vacationing at Martha's Vineyard with the family. Perhaps he and Michelle and the kids can recover from their last vacations a week ago, while soaking up the sun and the ambiance of the Vineyard.
Of course, the president is back on the links while there. Two rounds in two days so far and more on the planner I am sure. But sadly, swimming may be out of the question right now. That is too bad. We will miss the photo opts of Michelle's style setting swim wear.
And is there any more fitting reality right now? Than for there to be a swimming advisory for Martha's Vineyard? De to un-safe levels of turds in the water?
An interesting piece IMO. Or as Yogi Bera might say, "it's like Deja Vu all over again. Seems to me like I have seen this ambassador of death before. And the last time I remember seeing it? It had Iron crosses and swastikas on it. Sixty years and not a lot has changed it seems. Or as some would say, we are once again witnessing history repeating itself.
Of course the little tin dick dictator of Iran and his Islamic council of Ayatollahs are saying that their new drone is a weapon of peace. What would make anyone think or believe any different. Why hell, it probably won't be another couple of months and they will be test firing one to the west anyway. Just to see how it works of course.
And in the mean time, America had better sit down and be a good little boy like they have been told to do by this tyrant. Any bets on Obama making cooing sounds toward his Muslim brothers while they continue their advance toward a nuclear attack on Israel?

First came King Kong. Now, bedbugs are trying to conquer the Empire State Building.
An infestation of the creepy crawlers has hit the city's most iconic building, the Daily News has learned.
The little critters invaded an employee changing room in the basement, prompting building officials to call in exterminators.
"There were guys there last night, spraying down the place," a source told The News yesterday.
An Empire State Building official said the bedbugs were discovered last week after they hitched a ride into the building on an employee's clothes.Some may find these reports interesting. Some may find them humorous. Some may even come to the conclusion that this is but one more example of "the price we must pay to live in a free society."
To those I say? Keep drinking the Kool Aid and keep believing the egalitarian tripe that is being hustled as individual rights and freedoms, while all along your real rights and freedoms are being stolen away from you and subjugated by the day.
Yep, just think, it's only fair to allow these nasty people and their alien customs and culture to infect our society. Because it's the American way.......... right?

Here's the latest.. AMC theaters in New York City
The AMC Empire 25 movie theater complex in the Times Square area shut its doors Tuesday night to deal with a bed bug problem.
AMC said it has been testing and treating its theaters after getting complaints from some patrons about bed beg bites.
The company said it inspected the Empire 25 Tuesday and found bed bugs in an auditorium that had previously tested negative.
AMC shut down the complex, located on West 42nd Street, and began treatment, said Justin Scott, a spokesman for AMC.
"At AMC Theatres, the health and safety of our guests and associates is of the utmost importance and we take every guest report seriously," Scott said. "That's why we have taken aggressive and proactive steps to help ensure our theatres remain free of bed bugs."
The theater reopened Wednesday evening.
Scott said that the theater will be treated again in two weeks, as is recommended by pest control specialists.
Bedbugs becoming a local problem
Canada is even under attack.
Now ask yourself this question...."do you ever remember hearing of bed bugs when you were growing up?" I do. People talked about bed bugs and lice being a problem of the 1920's and 1930's and especially with those immigrating from Europe. Hence the reason that everyone was brought first to Ellis island and "de-loused" prior to being allowed to come ashore in New York city.
And yet here we are eighty years later? and we are seeing lice and bed bug infestations once again and there is also a noted rise in viral and bacterial infections such as the noted recent increase in Denge fever in southern Florida. And much about Salmonella and other food born pathogens.
So what's the answer? Who's to blame? Ask yourself those questions then answer them under your breath and in the quiet of your mind. Never allow yourself to either admit or acknowledge that anything out of the ordinary has ever happened. Remember, the government is in control and they are here to help.
I have an idea! Let's just blame all this on Global warming! Maybe even get Al to do a movie in between massages?
Softly, softly catchy monkeys. Sleep tight now and don't let the bed bugs bite.

I had to say goodbye to a dear friend today. A friend that I have known for right at twenty years. When he came into my life, he was pretty young, but he matured quickly and except for that one time that he broke his leg, he managed to stay reasonably clear of trouble.
Then of course there was his younger brother. A spunky little guy that we lost all too soon about this time last year. They were a pair. With the littlest always trying to mug his older brother.
My friend's name was Buns. A cute little name that just sort of morphed it's way into existence over several years. When Buns first arrived, he was this cute little fur ball of cinnamon colored fur. My daughter fell in love with him instantly and immediately named him Cinnamon.
As time passed, she dressed him in the finest dolls clothes and degraded him by pushing him around the house all dressed up and in the stroller, but Buns never complained. We came to call him Cinna-Buns latter on, then after a while he simply became Buns.
He seemed more comfortable with that name and he knew when you were talking about him. As time passed, his old trick knee played up on him and he learned to sit with it stuck out to one side. Most folks that knew him said that he looked a lot like his daddy (me). both of us seemingly always had serious faces.
But that never stopped my friend from getting up in my lap and giving me kitty kisses every night. Buns was an outside cat up until about a year ago. right around the time we lost his little brother to coyotes, I knew that it was time to bring him in as he just couldn't get around as well as he use to with the bad leg and all.
I have so many memories of my little friend that I wouldn't know where to begin, but the times looked back on when he use to wrestle with his adopted brother were the best. Those and the nightly kitty kisses to his daddy.
As time passed we both began to age, but Buns got way ahead of me. Something about that seven years for every one of ours. Which would have put my friend at the ripe old age of around 144 today.
Buns went home today. The past week had seen the dramatic changes that you always look for in and older animal and at the same time dread to see. No longer able to make it to the cat box, and as of the last couple of days, all interest in eating was gone.
That's when I realized this morning that it was time. I gave my friend a bath this afternoon then sat with him for several hours just stroking him and listening to him purr. He wasn't in any pain, but the brightness of his eyes had left him. I already knew a year ago that his hearing was failing and I suspected that cataracts were taking their toll on his vision also.
But as we sat and rocked and petted and reminisced about the good times and all that we had seen and done together, it seemed to make things a little more bearable as the reality rapidly approached for both of us.
I waited until the latter part of the afternoon before I decided that it was time for my friend to catch his train to the Rainbow Bridge. We went outside and walked around and visited all his favorite old spots. And he sat there in my arm and looked intently at those places that he had roamed so frequently. I placed him on the soft grass on his towel and invited him to smell the grass again and touch it, but he seemed content just to gaze at it and then look up at me.
The time arrived and it was time to say our goodbyes to his momma. My wife was understandably upset, but she too knew that there was little left for us to do. So I loaded up and cradled my friend in my arm while we took a slow and scenic drive to see the vet one last time. We drove through the old neighborhood where my friend was born almost twenty years ago. and he looked at the passing trees and lawns almost as if he recognized them and remembered.
After we arrived at our destination, they took us back to a room and the vet came in to see us. He knew by the looks on our faces that this was not the kind of visit that he liked to have with patients and family. After a brief conversation and examination, the vet confirmed what I already knew. It was time for my friend to leave this earth.
The procedure was explained and the vet noted that he had been seeing Buns almost since the first day he had been in practice. The doc gave my friend a shot of sedative to relax him and allow him to go to sleep and be at ease. Then after a few more minutes he was given the final injection.
My friend didn't want to leave. He resisted the sedative, but finally lowered his head and relaxed. I sat there with him the entire time. Rubbing his head and holding his paw and talking to him. Letting him know that it was alright and that soon he would be with his little brother at the Rainbow Bridge. And there would be no more pain and no more arthritis or stiff legs. No more anything but the joy of just being renewed in spirit and reunited with his little buddy Duncan.
A little while later, my friend took his last breath and passed on from this world and to the magical side that daddy had told him would be there. He is there now with Duncan his little brother. I gave him a message to give to Duncan for me. I never got to say goodbye to Duncan, so I wanted Buns to tell him that I still loved him to and that I haven't forgotten him and that I think of him everyday.
Watching Buns pass today, was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do. But I knew that it was something that had to be done. It was merciful and my friend had lived a log and full life. What more could a cat ask for. What more could any of us ask for.
My Buns buddy is at the Rainbow Bridge now. He and my other buddy Duncan are running and playing and dancing in the grass. I can see them in my minds eye as I can sense that they are both in a better place now.
I will always love my Buns buddy. He was my biggest buddy and my bestest friend and the bestest cat that there ever was or ever will be. And he loved his daddy to the very end, when he laid his head down for the last time on my hand and said goodbye.
Rest in peace my friend, and know that your daddy loves you and that I will miss you so very much.
A three-year-old federal law that makes it a crime to falsely claim to have received a medal from the U.S. military is unconstitutional, an appeals court panel in California ruled Tuesday.
The decision involves the case of Xavier Alvarez of Pomona, Calif., a water district board member who said at a public meeting in 2007 that he was a retired Marine who received the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military decoration.
Alvarez was indicted in 2007. He pleaded guilty on condition that he be allowed to appeal on First Amendment grounds. He was sentenced under the Stolen Valor Act to more than 400 hours of community service at a veterans hospital and fined $5,000.
A panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with him in a 2-1 decision Tuesday, agreeing that the law was a violation of his free-speech rights. The majority said there's no evidence that such lies harm anybody, and there's no compelling reason for the government to ban such lies.
The dissenting justice insisted that the majority refused to follow clear Supreme Court precedent that false statements of fact are not entitled to First Amendment protection.
The act revised and toughened a law that forbids anyone to wear a military medal that wasn't earned. The measure sailed through Congress in late 2006, receiving unanimous approval in the Senate.
Dozens of people have been arrested under the law at a time when veterans coming home from wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are being embraced as heroes. Many of the cases involve men who simply got caught living a lie without profiting from it. Almost all the impostors have been ordered to perform community service.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles said it was deciding whether to appeal Tuesday's ruling.
Once again, injustice has prevailed in the federal courts.
As latest example.
"There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded," she said. "How is this being ginned up that here we are talking about Treasure Island, something we've been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the future of our country and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City." (h/t Kristinn)
Calls to investigate the funding for those proposing the $100 million "Cordoba House" have fallen on deaf ears, though, as New York's Mayor Mike Bloomberg has described such an investigation as "un-American."
Ms. Pelosi called the Ground Zero mosque an "urban development decision" for New Yorkers to work through. Her remarks happened on the heels of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, parting ways with President Barack Obama on the issue. Mr. Reid suggested the mosque should be built somewhere else.Calls to investigate who is funding the opposition? And according to madam speaker, the proposed ground zero mosque is a zoning issue? A concerted effort to make this a political issue?
You are damn right people are making it a political issue madam lunatic! And they should! It is a political issue! It is the most important political issue of this season in my opinion. And if failure, ineptitude, deceit, abandonment of the constitution and out right treasonous actions against the people of this nation aren't political issues? Then I sure as hell would like to know what are.
And now that the sleeping giant that is the American people has finally been awakened by the remarks and support of the president for this lunacy and treason against America? Madam scrappy dog leaps to the middle of the fray and attempts to stir the pot by calling fowl against any Americans who may oppose the treachery of those in New York, in the White House and in her party?
Excuse me madam sh*t stirrer, but what say you go roll your dung balls somewhere else. Or better yet, keep flapping your gums. Perhaps at some point even the depraved of your district might have enough of your lunacy and replace you sorry backside.
The unmitigated gall of this woman surpasses all that is reasoned. Here we have a proposed travesty in progress in New York city and madam Nancy is calling for federal investigations into who is funding the opposition. What say we have some federal investigations into who is funding the mosque. What say we have some federal investigations into how such a biased and anti American interloping opportunist can become the speaker of the house?
This woman should be tried and imprisoned for treason.
It is interesting to me, to see a woman doing what many men in this country are afraid to do. Which is to confront the realities of race and media and call both out for what they are and how they are being portrayed in this country.
Most white people don't even realize or consider how marginalized they have become as a result of the race pimps and the true racist in America. As Dr. Laura recently discovered, once again, it is alright for blacks to say what they please concerning their free use of words and terms of slang toward their own. But let one white person even broach the topic during an academic discussion of race? And suddenly they are a racist for even having uttered the word.
We all know the word in question and we all know how anyone is immediately demonized for even pronouncing it, much less attempting to discuss it. Such was the case with Dr. Laura last week. She found herself buried beneath the avalanche of racism that was heaped upon her for having had the audacity to mention the word during an academic discussion.
A couple of months ago, Nancy Pelosi was caught in one of her many gaffes concerning religion and her own personal perspectives concerning religion. Watching the woman attempting to speak as if she has anything more than passing familiarity with God's word or the bible was interesting to say the least. But when she began her disertation concerning the "word" and how the "word" became flesh? Well that was truly amazing.
And her representations immediately drew me to another reality present in our world today as it concerns words. Dr. Laura is the most recent victim of the modern day usage of words. The irony that exists in her victimization is obvious. Not only can we not speak of God's word openly in this country, without fear of excoriating condemnation by media and the thought police, but we must also be mindful to never speak of the equally horrific taboo of mentioning the racially unmentionable.
So Dr. Laura has now experienced the fire of race hate and as a result, she has decided to step down and step aside. But at least she has the fortitude to explain why.
I am sure that she will go on to continue in some format and she will continue to write books and offer advice to those who ask, but she has made a conscience decision to call full stop and walk away due to her victimization by race in America and I say good for her. It's time more white Americans stood up and stood their ground and challenged the fallacy and industry of race in America for precisely what it is.

Wake up America. Your country is under attack and your heritage and future are being stolen away from you by those cloaked in the guises of Americanism as represented by those who truly hate and despise this nation.
Houston and Crockett and Bowie knew what it was like to fight for a cause, albeit a lost cause at the time, they went on to inspire a nation and to send invaders back to whence they came. These men knew who their enemies were, as they equally knew that fate and future rested squarely on their shoulders.
We need more like Crockett and Bowie and Houston. And a few more like Adams and Jefferson and Franklin. It is said that time waits for no man, that blows must be struck while the metal is hot. How much hotter need be the season of discontent in this nation, before the people once again begin to practice "united we stand" and rise up to preserve that which has been bled and died for.
This man and his party are systematically and methodically dismantling and destroying everything that represents the character of this nation, its heritage, it's faith and it's institutions. And as we speak, he is unabashedly coming after our faith and attempting to replace it with the egalitarian lies of equality and fairness and the greater lie of social tolerance and the supposed moderate Muslim view.
Have a look at how the religion of peace practices their love and tolerance and you will see what is in store for this nation and any other that fails to heed the warnings of history or the observed practices of the followers of Mohamed.
Some would have thought that the ghosts of seventy years ago would still be speaking clearing and standing as a warning to many generations to come, but we have lost our way and dimmed their visages to a point where they are made fun of by our enemies and no longer are allowed to speak their truth to our children.
Neville Chamberlain once waved a treaty in the face of his countrymen and smiled, only to realize very shortly that the man of the hour had risen and was marching to destroy and conquer the continent of Europe and all that lay across the channel to England.
A friend of mine often reminds me, that when dire hours approach, a man of the hour will arise and lead the people. My friend likens his analogy to men like FDR and Churchill. I hasten to remind my friend that the definition of leadership often rests squarely with who is holding the bayonet and who is being ordered to march. And that for every moment in history that has provided a Roosevelt or a Churchill? There was first a Hitler or Napoleon that caused the creation of such misery that good men had to rise and be accounted for.
Aside from the fact that our nations economy is worsening by the day and our national debt is literally staggering, there remains the reality that our foundations and our institutions are being destroyed one by one and that everything that represents the long term individuality and freedom of this nation is in jeopardy.
How much longer can this nation endure the crushing pressures of secular humanism and egalitarian socialism, before it collapses and the jackals and our enemies come to pick our bones and laugh at our fate by our own hands. America has gone in twenty short years, from having the upper hand, the respect and the leadership position in the world, to a place where we are mere foot steps away from becoming no more than footnotes in history.
How did this happen? It began with the attacks on the family and our institutions of higher learning. It took root in our schools and eventually the lies of tolerance were used to supplant the teachings of our faith and our churches began to falter and become the pulpits of deceit. It began when we cast aside Benjamin Franklin's warning and we began to trade freedom for supposed security. It happened when we began to accept the heretical and insidious lies of egalitarianism and the representations of achievable Nirvana through supposed fairness and the socialist equality of shared existence and government omnipresence.
Yes, great men like Churchill knew and recognized the dangers.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."
We as a nation have gone from a time of self sufficiency, abundance and made in America, to a time when we owe our very existence and daily bread to the Chinese. Our industries and our manufacturing have fallen by the wayside due to over taxation and government regulation. Fair trade policies have become political trade imbalances and we as a nation now consume far more than we produce, as we owe far more than we can ever repay.
We have gone from being that shining city on a hill in the vision of Ronald Reagan, to being that indiscernible soon to be hovel amongst the flotsam of a global one world atheist existence.
Where does it end? Can we save ourselves? Or is it too late. Should we simply give up and accept the fate which we have allowed and created? Or should we stand up and fight and re-claim that which is ours by birth, right and heritage. The time is short. Decisions must be made and made soon. The enemies of this nation look upon us from afar and they exist among us now and their desires are our wanton destruction. The time of history to repeat itself is upon us. And all that we need ask ourselves is this..."When the time comes and the history pages are filled with the events of our present lives, will those pages be written by Americans and patriots? Those who stood and took back the reins and stopped the runaway course to oblivion?
Or will our fate be written by those who have conquered and destroyed that which has been the greatest culture and society to ever exist on the face of this planet.
Americans need to be asking themselves these questions, both now and as they go to the polls this fall. And they need to be seeking (demanding) accountability from their elected representatives now. Now before it is too late, now before these collaborators cloaked in the veils of progressive rhetoric can further their cause and further the defeat of this nation.
Now is the time to be thinking about the future. For once you have waited for the future to arrive, you will find yourself sitting squarely astride the past and wondering how it came to pass.

Defense chief Gates orders review of Marines' role
Excuse me? I am not familiar with any 'concerns' among current or former Marines as it concerns either their present or evolving role in the protection of America. And if the Marine Corps isn't to be considered a 'ground combat force?' Just what in the hell does Sec/Def Gates think their role is or should be.
Acknowledging concerns among current and former Marines that the Corps has evolved into another ground combat force, the Defense secretary aims to define the service's future path.
The policies and attitudes that are coming out of this administration are becoming more and more bizarre by the day.
In ordering the Pentagon review, Gates was deepening a long-running debate about the role of the Marine Corps, including whether one of its main missions — amphibious assaults against fortified coastlines — has become obsolete because of the changing nature of warfare and advances in precision weaponry.I thought that when Bill Clinton was president that the US military had never seen anyone so intent on destroying them from within. But now I realize that Clinton's efforts pale in comparison to what this president is up to.
Gates is seeking $100 billion in budget savings from the military services and Pentagon bureaucracies, though he intends to invest the money in weapons programs. Given the unwavering support for the Marines in Congress, there is little chance the service would be eliminated or see its budget significantly reduced.
Gates noted that anxiety about the future of the Marines stems from the "perception … that they have become too heavy, too removed from their expeditionary roots."
And lest we forget, Robert Gates was selected by George Bush during his final year in office (to replace Donald Rumsfeld) and he was quickly approved by congress. And he has been retained by Obama. I knew when I saw that move after Obama took office, that we had a ringer in the position of secretary of defense.
This country is going down by the bow. Every day that Barack Obama remains president, we steam ever closer toward oblivion and the complete destruction of this nation. There are so many things now on the list of things unimaginable to me even two years ago, that I find it hard to comprehend why the large portion of Americans are not up in arms 'literally' and marching on Washington with torches.
The man wants to create a civilian force equivalent to his own personal army? Yet he has his secretary of defense looking at reducing if not completely eliminating the United States Marine Corps? The oldest branch of the American military services?
I believe that it is time that a move be tabled to impeach this charlatan masquerading as secretary of defense and his boss. He is no secretary of defense in my book. He is the chief secretary of defeat right beneath our appeaser in chief`right now if you ask me.
I cannot believe the actions of this government since this impostor took office as the president.
America is under attack from within.
July 31, 10:07 AM Conservative Examiner Anthony G. Martin
In a stunning development that could potentially send the nation into a Constitutional crisis, an astute attorney who is well-versed in Constitutional law states that the ruling against the state of Arizona by Judge Susan Bolton concerning its new immigration law is illegal.
The attorney in question submitted her assertion in a special article in the Canada Free Press. Her argument states in part, "Does anyone read the U.S. Constitution these days? American lawyers donâ€™t read it. Federal Judge Susan R. Bolton apparently has never read it. Same goes for our illustrious Attorney General Eric Holder. But this lawyer has read it and she is going to show you something in Our Constitution which is as plain as the nose on your face.
"Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 of our Constitution says:
"In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the Supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction."
In other words, the Judge in the Arizona case has absolutely no Constitutional jurisdiction over the matter upon which she ruled. As the Constitution makes abundantly clear, only the U.S. Supreme Court can issue rulings that involve a state.
This means that neither Judge Bolton nor the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals
in San Francisco, to which the case is being appealed, have any legal standing whatsoever to rule on the issue.
Thus, U.S. Attorney-General Eric Holder filed the federal government's lawsuit against the state of Arizona in a court that has no authority to hear the case.
The attorney whose heads-up thinking concerning the Constitution provides the legal remedy for dealing with this blatant disregard for Constitutional law in the article at Canada Free Press, which can be accessed at the link above.
In a related development, another explosive discovery was made by those who actually take the Constitution seriously. The Constitution specifically allows an individual state to wage war against a neighboring country in the event of an invasion, should there be a dangerous delay or inaction on the part of the Federal Government. This information was cited by United Patriots of America.
From Article I, Section 10 of the U.S. Constitution, we find these words:
"No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent danger as will not admit of delay."
No one who is actually familiar with the crisis at the southern border can deny that Arizona is endangered by the relentless assault of lawless Mexican invaders who ignore our laws, inundate our schools and medical facilities with unpaid bills, and even endanger the very lives of citizens with criminal drug cartels that engage in kidnapping, murder, 115 bodies recovered in AZ entry routes, human trafficking, and other mayhem, including aiming missile and grenade launchers directly at U.S. border cities from just across the Mexican border.
This is as much of an invasion as the nation of Iran sending in a fleet of warships to the Port of Charleston.
The Constitution that forms the basis of the rule of law in this country says that Arizona has legal right to protect itself in the case of inaction or delay on the part of the federal government, including waging war in its self-defense.
This, when coupled with the clear Constitutional mandate that only the Supreme Court hear cases involving the states, should be ample legal basis for attorneys representing Arizona to go after the federal government with a vengeance.
Governor Jan Brewer and the stalwart members of the Arizona legislature have ample legal reason to stand firm against the illegal bullying of an arrogant, lawless federal government.
Now, go look it up and read it for yourself.
After skirting the controversy for weeks, President Barack Obama is weighing in forcefully on the mosque near ground zero, saying a nation built on religious freedom must allow it.
"As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country," Obama told an intently listening crowd gathered at the White House Friday evening to observe the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
"That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances," he said. "This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable."

Obama participated in a similar gathering last year.
Celebrations like iftar dinners "remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam's role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings," Obama wrote in a statement Wednesday.
"Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality ... a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country."
The dinner comes amid a growing controversy over the proposed construction of an Islamic cultural center in downtown Manhattan, near the site of the World Trade Center. A CNN poll released Wednesday found that 68 percent of the public opposes the project.
Meanwhile, the White House — which has made great efforts to reach out to the Muslim community — has been silent on the issue.
"This is rightly a matter for New York City and the local community to decide," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters on Aug. 3.
Ramadan began on Wednesday and will end around Sept. 10.

It seems there are a bevy of leftist bloggers who have taken the former history professor to task and united in their efforts to see that history is once again portrayed the way that they want it to be observed and perceived. There certainly isn't anything new in that approach by the left. The re-writing and twisting of history seems to be one of the mainstays of liberal reality.
It is from time to time quite entertaining to watch and read the wailing and gnashing of teeth that goes on in the process of liberal denial. Especially when the thrust from the lance of truth and history has apparently stricken home on the left side of the isle.
As it presently is, the left has closed ranks to foist once again the time honored argument, that Newt's comparisons of present day Islamic intentions to the historical record in Cordoba Spain, are just so much hodge podge and mish mash of the true history of Islam over the past 1600 years.
There are certainly those who would like the average smuck to believe once again that the only real fear of Islam that is credibly justified, is that of some miniscule band of rebel militants that comprises some infinitesimal fraction of the whole. The liberal left would much rather be content with the continued (rather obvious lie) that all Muslims are peace loving moderates.
The interesting thing about these leftist attacks and something that I always find the most interesting at their core, is that those most frequently leading the charge against Christian moral perspectives and regaling the virtues of Islam (almost without exception) are almost always atheist.
These secular atheist attacks are very similar in socially argumentative construct, to the equally questionable practice of large portions of the lesbian population always being in the forefront of pro-abortion arguments and attacks against the Christian pro-life majority at every turn as it concerns abortion in America.
I am puzzled. What is it about Christianity that so angers the atheist left? They certainly don't seem to have a problem with any other religion on this planet, only with the practices and the teachings of Christianity. Certainly it couldn't rest on the ubiquitous reality that Christians are opposed to homosexuality as a sin. Certainly our leftist brethren know and understand the connotations of what would happen to homosexuals everywhere, if Islam were to become the predominant religion of any western nation. One look at how the subject is treated in their own midst in the middle east should answer that.
Yet liberals proceed daily with their demonizations of conservative Christianity, while remaining in denial and completely oblivious to the realities taught and practiced in Islam as it concerns homosexuality.
Could it also be that the left completely misses that reality combined with the fact that Islam treats women worse than 3rd rate chattel?
I for one don't happen to believe that the highly educated in this country can be so stupid or so ignorant of either history or reality, as to not be aware of the true representations of Islam on these two counts. Therefore, there remains only one explanation for their actions. The left is so committed to it's hatred of Christianity and America as a nation founded upon Christian principles, that they will do anything to destroy both. And that includes sawing off the limbs of institution, history, culture and moral right, from underneath their own feet and ultimately destroying themselves in the process.
A once simple commentary appearing in a comic strip of by gone Americana seems to sum it up best in my opinion....."We have met the enemy and he is us." And so it goes......the real enemies that confront this nation are many and deeply committed to their own theological domination of this nation and the world. But in our midst we also find the now well rooted seedlings of dissent that comprise the real beach head of infiltration in America by the Islamic east. We are meeting our enemies daily and as but one observer, I can honestly say that our own worst enemy is ourselves and those among us who are allowed by the freedoms of this nation to spread their hate and discontent while trumpeting their ideals as progressive.
In all my years, I have never seen a more autonomous White House press secretary. Robert Gibbs from day one, has been the most acrimonious person to ever hold the position in my opinion. and his boss seems oblivious to anything and everything the man says.
Case in point. Anyone detected in angst or unhappiness by the president since these remarks were made? Anyone see the MSM become the least bit inquisitive as to Gibbs obvious slamming of the left who doesn't display absolute loyalty to the president.
I can only wonder what those outspoken leftists like James Carville must be thinking. I wonder if they are in hiding and waiting for the brown shirts to arrive and take them away.
In an interview with The Hill newspaper in Washington DC, Gibbs revealed frustration at attacks on the administration from liberal Democrats and others on the left, in terms likely to make relations even worse:
"I hear these people saying he's like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested," Gibbs said. "I mean, it's crazy."Within hours of the interview being published, Gibbs tried to walk back his remarks, calling them "inartful". He told the Huffington Post:
The press secretary dismissed the "professional left" in terms very similar to those used by their opponents on the ideological right, saying, "They will be satisfied when we have Canadian healthcare and we've eliminated the Pentagon. That's not reality."
I watch too much cable, I admit. Day after day it gets frustrating. Yesterday I watched as someone called legislation to prevent teacher layoffs a bailout - but I know that's not a view held by many, nor were the views I was frustrated about.Gibbs went on to say: "So we should all, me included, stop fighting each other and arguing about our differences on certain policies".
His remarks reflect the White House's sensitivity at criticism from the left of the Democratic party, who are unhappy that Obama has too often appeared to compromise on domestic policy while continuing Bush administration policies on Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as a continued failure to close Guantanamo prison.
Gibbs's remarks were quickly taken up and dissected on liberal blogs.
Glenn Greenwald at Salon described Gibbs's remarks as "one of the most petulant, self-pitying outbursts seen from a top political official in recent memory, half derived from a paranoid Richard Nixon rant and the other half from a Sean Hannity/Sarah Palin caricature of The Far Left". Chris Bowers of the OpenLeft blog responded in a post headlined "Dear swing voters, you suck. Love, The White House":
If the White House really doesn't think it has any problems among self-identified liberals or progressives, and that all the complaints are coming from a grasstop elite, it needs to look at the data again.

The first lady answers the phone....
Hello Michelle? Is that you? Oh I am so glad that I caught you at home.
Anita, it's so good to hear from you....whas up girl friend?
Well girl, I hate to mention it....but you know my daddy passed recently and since then, I have really been bummed out. I told my daughter that I would take her to Spain for her birthday you know. And then I thought about the promise that you made me. You know...spending some time together and such.
So I thought maybe you and the girls could tag along and we could make it like a girls trip.
You know something Anita? You are right. I am tired of being all couped up in this big old house all the time. It's time for me to get out and do some living. And besides, we have those big old planes now and all that comes with them. I could take the whole family and more friends and we could make a week of it.
You are so right Michelle, no need wasting all them perks. And just think, while you are there, you can meet the king and queen and you can try out some of them new outfits that you have been dying to wear.
I know Anita, it's about time we showed this world how a first lady is supposed to dress. My oldest is away at camp right now but my youngest would just love to come. And Barack could squeeze in a couple of rounds of golf while we are gone.
This just sounds so wonderful. I am so glad that you thought to ask me to come with you. And I am sure the American people will understand...cus a girl's just gotta have a break now and then, with all this first lady stuff I have to do.
So I will have my people get with your people and set this all up. Meanwhile, Barack can have one of his people call over to Andrews and gas up the big birds so that we will be ready to go.
Hey! What are friends for!
Bye now Ciao!
Inside story of Michelle's trip
WASHINGTON--Michelle Obama and daughter Sasha returned from Spain on Sunday, a vacation at a lavish hotel on the Mediterranean coast that triggered her first controversy since becoming first lady. I'm told she made the trip because she promised one of her closest friends, a longtime Chicago pal who just lost her father, she would spend time with her.
Mrs. Obama is the most popular figure in the Obama orbit -- and turned around her image from the 2008 presidential campaign by adamantly staying away from any kind of controversy, focusing on safe issues: combating childhood obesity and helping military families.
And then as Paul Harvey would say....the rest of the story......
There is just too much there for me to dissect. What's going on, is as plain as the nose on the face. Go and read the entire article and try not to wretch.
The Spain trip generated coverage on the networks and cable news shows and other national outlets -- including columns and posts I wrote -- raising questions about public perception and taxpayer costs.
A ritzy vacation in Spain while the U.S. faces tough economic times was off-message -- as was highlighting the beaches in Spain after urging Americans to head to Florida's Gulf Coast to help out the tourism industry impacted by the BP oil spill. (The first family flies to Florida this weekend.) But the reason
Mrs. Obama made the trip -- and other facts, not rumors about the travel -- are important in knowing the whole story and understanding why she made the call to go. First, some numbers. Mrs. Obama did not travel with 40 friends, a number used by some news outlets.
She vacationed with two women, one of them a longtime Chicago pal, Anita Blanchard, who is the obstetrician who delivered Sasha and Malia. Blanchard is married to Marty Nesbitt -- President Obama's buddy and the treasurer of Obama's presidential campaign fund. There was one other woman. Total: four daughters among the three women.
They paid for their hotel rooms and other personal and travel expenses. The trip involved six White House advance staffers and two East Wing staffers, deputy Chief of Staff Melissa Winter and Mrs. Obama's personal assistant, Kristen Jarvis, according to Mrs. Obama's spokeswoman Catherine McCormick Lelyveld.
Mrs. Obama does travel with significant security -- and in a trip like this, three shifts of uniformed and plain-clothes agents and military personnel flew with her on a big Air Force 757. No matter where she goes -- domestic or international -- any first lady gets protection and she does not decide how many agents are needed.
So why did Mrs. Obama go to Spain at this time? She's not tone-deaf politically. What was behind the "mother-daughter" vacation? A White House source told me that Blanchard's father passed away and Mrs. Obama was not able to make the funeral at the beginning of July. Blanchard had promised her daughter she would take her to Spain for her birthday. She asked Mrs. Obama and Sasha to come with. (Malia is at overnight camp.)
