Ann Coulter on Eric Holder

Most visits by the IRS commissioner

Meanwhile, George Bush's IRS commissioner visited him just once in four years. Do the math people then tell me that the white house knew nothing of the goings on with the IRS and the IRS targeting conservatives for scrutiny and investigations under the Obama reign of terror.
 Obama officials who've visited the White House (As prepared by The Daily Caller)
Shulman’s extensive access to the White House first came to light during his testimony last week before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Shulman gave assorted answers when asked why he had visited the White House 118 times during the period that the IRS was targeting tea party and conservative nonprofits for extra scrutiny and delays on their tax-exempt applications.
By contrast, Shulman’s predecessor Mark Everson only visited the White House once during four years of service in the George W. Bush administration and compared the IRS’s remoteness from the president to “Siberia.” But the scope of Shulman’s White House visits — which strongly suggests coordination by White House officials in the campaign against the president’s political opponents — is even more striking in comparison to the publicly recorded access of Cabinet members.
An analysis by The Daily Caller of the White House’s public “visitor access records” showed that every current and former member of President Obama’s Cabinet would have had to rack up at least 60 more public visits to the president’s home to catch up with “Douglas Shulman.”
The visitor logs do not give a complete picture of White House access. Some high-level officials get cleared for access and do not have to sign in during visits. A Washington Post database of visitor log records cautions, “The log may include some scheduled visits that did not take place and exclude visits by members of Congress, top officials and others who are not required to sign in at security gates.”
The White House press office declined to comment on which visits by high-ranking officials do and do not get recorded in the visitor log, but it is probable that the vast majority of visits by major Cabinet members do not end up in the public record. (RELATED: How much have scandals hurt Obama’s approval ratings?)
Nevertheless, many visits by current and former Cabinet members are in the logs, and the record depicts an IRS chief uniquely at home in the White House.
Attorney General Eric Holder, President Obama’s friend and loyal lieutenant, logged 62 publicly known White House visits, not even half as many as Shulman’s 157.
Former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, to whom Shulman reported, clocked in at just 48 publicly known visits.

Holder wants to go off the record

 So,,,,,according t the attorney general, if you want to talk to him about his scandals?  You need to do so off the record. The last thing he wants is for the American people to get the straight facts on what this man and what this administration have been involved in

I am just a single voice and a single voter but I can see clearly what needs to be done here.  The man needs to be hauled before congress and forced to testify, or he needs to be stripped of his office and imprisoned for contempyt of congress and contempt of the American people who he swore to protect.

Everyday this man holds the office of attorney general is an abomination of justice.

Finally the media in this country is acting like the keepers of freedom they were supposed to be.  I hope they all refuse to fall for this ploy of politics and game playing by the Obama administration.

Holder runs into roadblocks on off-the-record meetings on leaks

Attorney General Eric Holder's plans to sit down with media representatives to discuss guidelines for handling investigations into leaks to the news media have run into trouble.
The Associated Press issued a statement Wednesday objecting to plans for the meetings to be off the record. "If it is not on the record, AP will not attend and instead will offer our views on how the regulations should be updated in an open letter," said Erin Madigan White, the AP's media relations manager.

The New York Times is taking the same position. "It isn't appropriate for us to attend an off-the-record meeting with the attorney general," executive editor Jill Abramson said in a statement.
Like the New York Times and the Associated Press, CNN will decline the invitation for an off-the-record meeting. A CNN spokesperson says if the meeting with the attorney general is on the record, CNN would plan to participate.
The Huffington Post's Washington bureau chief, Ryan Grim, also said he will not attend unless the meeting is on the record. "A conversation specifically about the freedom of the press should be an open one. We have a responsibility not to betray that," Grim told CNN.
But Politico posted an item on its website saying editor-in-chief John Harris plans to attend one of the meetings with Holder.
"As editor-in-chief, I routinely have off-the-record conversations with people who have questions or grievances about our coverage or our newsgathering practices," Harris said in the Politico item. "I feel anyone - whether an official or ordinary reader - should be able to have an unguarded conversation with someone in a position of accountability for a news organization when there is good reason."

Disability, Ameirca's Eight Most Populous State

 This statistic speaks volumes about what is really going on with our economy and unemployment.  Where have all those people gone who cannot find work?  Looks like a lot of them are now disabled.

Record 10,978,040 Now on Disability; ‘Disability’ Would Be 8th Most Populous State

The 10,978,040 disability beneficiaries in the United States now exceed the population of all but seven states. For example, there are more Americans collecting disability today than there are people living in Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey or Virginia.

The enemy is everywhere

Ever wonder what unrestrained immigration in the twenty first century will look like in America?  Look no farther than the latter half of the twentieth century in Great Britain and Europe for your answer.

After decades of allowing those in the middle east and eastern Europe to spill across their borders, the end result is  "the enemy is all around us!"

And now comes the former head of the equivalent of the CIA in the UK to tell everyone that the enemy is everywhere and everyone must spy on each other if they are to survive.  Really?  Yes.....apparently so it seems for them at the least.

How much longer before this becomes the hue and cry here in America....  Hello!  It's already happening.  Our government is launching drones against us, equipping civilian police forces with military assault weapons and vehicles and buying up eery scrap of ammunition available.  So you tell me what is going on.......

Former head of MI5 Dame Stella Rimington has called for British people to inform security services if they suspect their neighbours maybe extremists

The former head of MI5 Dame Stella Rimington has called for British people to inform security services if they suspect their neighbours maybe extremists.

Dame Stella, who supports the Government’s controversial ‘snoopers’ charter’, said people need to be more alert because it is impossible for security services to spot every threat.

She called for a wartime vigilance and for people to be the Government’s ‘eyes and ears’ following the killing of Lee Rigby.

The 78-year-old, who was MI5’s first female Director General, said: ‘The community has the responsibility to act as the eyes and ears, as they did during the war … where there were all these posters up saying the walls have ears and the enemy is everywhere.

Remembering Boots today

The Thunder Rolls Into Washington This Morning.

It's Your Job

Like the lady says. It is your job to defend yourself. not the government's It is government's job to defend the constitution.  This woman has it spot on when she confronts the issue of oath breakers and on this day above all. Americans should stop for a moment and seriously look at who is responsible for breaking their oaths to defend this nation and its constitution.

Then take pause and look at the millions who have paid the ultimate price and sacrificed their lives and their blood to defend this nation, They have sacrificed their own personal lives for the  they took to defend this nation against all enemies foreign and domestic and to defend the constitution. An oath once taken is an oath for life people. Veterans know that, politicians should be taught that. If need be with their own blood.

What? No Umbrella Holder For The Pres?

And reports have it that it was drizzling.. I guess the pres was looking for the Marine to be holding an umbrella for him.. What an embarrassment this man is to this nation.
Pres Obama boarded Marine One without returning salute of US Marine at the steps. The Pres then came back out to shake the Marine's hand.

More from the pool reporter:

 View image on Twitter
Under gray skies and intermittent drizzle, President Obama boarded Marine One at 9:30 a.m. EDT in an open press event.
A few White House regulars were atwitter (and on Twitter) when the President walked directly up the steps of Marine One without saluting the Marine on duty. He soon came out of the helicopter, walked down the steps, shook hands with the Marine and engaged in a brief conversation.

Beheading in London

Not since a thousand years has something like this occurred in the streets of London.  Compliments of the followers of the religion of peace.  And the Brits call this a "politically motivated Islamist?" Really? 

More Stonewalling by The Obama Administration

It's pretty simple. Those involved in investigations of public scandal surrounding the violations of American citizens rights, specifically their first amendment rights, should not be allowed to hide behind self incrimination protections concerning their knowledge and involvement in government wrong doing.

 If this woman has done nothing wrong? If she has told the truth? If she has answered congress' questions previously, honestly and truthfully? Then why is she stonewalling and hiding now? She needs to be held in contempt of congress and jailed until she is willing to come clean about what she knows. It's as simple as that.

I Have Not Done Anything Wrong'

  "I have not done anything wrong," she said. "I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations. And I have not provided false information to this or any other congressional committee." Lerner adds that she invoke her 5th Amendment right and "will not answer any of the questions or testify today"


The Village Idiot Speaks Again

 Someone please tell me that this man's entire function isn't to distract away from the meaningful news of the day. Go ahead and tell me. Someone please tell me that someone isn't standing off camera moving his mouth for him.  Go ahead, tell me.

'Barack’s Learning to Speak Without a Teleprompter'

Speaking at a Jewish American Heritage Month reception last night in Washington, D.C., Vice President Joe Biden requested the "teleprompter in the room to be taken down," according to the pool report.
Then he made a joke: “You can’t tell Barack that the teleprompter’s down. The standing joke in the office is Barack’s learning to speak without a teleprompter; I’m learning to speak with one.”
Biden added, “I apologize for the teleprompter.”
Then, according to the pool report, Biden dove right in to the rest of his remarks:

Finally! A True Statement About Obama

It is irrelevant where Obama was during Bengazi. I say he's been irrelevant when it comes to international policies and the Arab world since day one. nothing new there.

Host Chris Wallace reminds Pfeiffer that Obama didn't really talk with Secretary Clinton, Secretary Panetta, or Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that night. "He was talking to his national security staff," Pfeiffer insists. Asked about whether the president entered the Situation Room, Pfeiffer says, "I don't remember what room the president was in on that night, and that's a largely irrelevant fact." Pfeiffer then argues that Wallace's questions about the president's handling of the Benghazi terror attack are "offensive."

More than a mere infraction of a rule

Some things I read are annoying, some things I read make me mad and some things I read really piss me off! This is one of those times. I was in my car today and listening to the interloper in chief during his remarks to the press alongside the Turkish ambassador. In the midst of that I here this president summon two United States Marines assigned to his security detail, to come and hold umbrellas for him and the Turkish ambassador, so they wouldn't get wet. Really? The majority of my thoughts on the matter aren't printable. I will say this. What a self serving self righteous ass!
The commander in chief of the American armed forces today forced a violation of Marine Corps regulations, so he wouldn’t get wet.
According to Marine Corps regulation MCO P1020.34F of the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3, a male Marine is not allowed to carry an umbrella while in uniform. There is no provision in the Marine Corps uniform regulation guidelines that allows a male Marine to carry an umbrella.
Nevertheless, during a press conference under a light drizzle with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan this morning, President Obama allowed the First Head to be protected from the elements by an umbrella held by a male Marine corporal.
The relevant portion of the regulation reads, “3035. UMBRELLAS (Female Marines). Female Marines may carry an all-black, plain standard or collapsible umbrella at their option during inclement weather with the service and dress uniforms. It will be carried in the left hand so that the hand salute can be properly rendered. Umbrellas may not be used/carried in formation nor will they be carried with the utility uniform.”
Items not expressly delineated as authorized components of the Marine Corps uniform are prohibited. Male Marines are informed never to carry an umbrella from the earliest phases of training.

EVery now and then? There comes a great idea!

I like this. I happen to think it is one of the best ideas I have seen in a long long time. I admire original thinking and this is original. I hope it catches fire and goes viral. \

The IRS Wants You

Shades of 1984 and Orwell's Big Brother. This is a scandal that had it been perpetrated by the previous administration against liberals? They would have burned Washington to the ground to get to the president responsible to ride him out of office on a rail.

The IRS wants YOU — to share everything

The Internal Revenue Service asked tea party groups to see donor rolls.
It asked for printouts of Facebook posts.

And it asked what books people were reading.

A POLITICO review of documents from 11 tea party and conservative groups that the IRS scrutinized in 2012 shows the agency wanted to know everything — in some cases, it even seemed curious what members were thinking. The review included interviews with groups or their representatives from Hawaii, New Mexico, Ohio, Texas and elsewhere.
The long-awaited report Treasury Department inspector general report released Tuesday says the agency itself decided some of its questions to conservative groups were way over the line – especially the one about donors.

Why doesn't the media do something?

Someone once said, "follow the money."  Perhaps we should also be following the relationships. The blood that exists between those working for this administration in highly placed national security positions and who their fathers really are.

I have said for many years that the level of corruption of American media is appalling. That the level of complicit covering up of illegality and propagated lies is obvious, yet the American people and the mass media remain in complete denial while Americans are spoon fed reality programing and the adventures of Honey Boo Boo et al.

Aside from the media denials, the evidence tells a quite different tale when it comes to connecting the dots and demonstrating the links.  The American media is in bed with liberal socialism, egalitarianism and the democrat party and they have been since at least the Johnson administration. Which explains the wanton pursuit of Richard Nixon and Watergate of 1970's fame. Meanwhile if the topic of Bengazi has been mentioned to mainstream media over past six months, the only response from these pillars of journalism has been to issue blank stares and the regurgitation of the Obama administration talking points of:  "Move along folks!  Nothing to see here!"

Does president Obama need to be impeached?  Probably, but not before the presidents and CEO's and editors of every major source of American media are arrested and led off in cuffs for their complicity to corrupt and destroy this nation. Americans have forgotten who created post contemporary cable news and what passes as journalism in today's world. The name Ted Turner no longer resonates as the lead mogul who sacrificed American values on the alter of faux journalism, but it should.

No one remembers that the man was married to the number one communist traitor bitch in America. No one remembers that this billionaire, when confronted with the opportunity to provide sincere philanthropy to less fortunate Americans?  Opted instead to donate one billion dollars to the Untied Nations. Can anyone relate or channel the Tom Hayden borne philosophies obviously imprinted on Turner while he was laying with his whore traitor former wife? 

No one in today's world is paying attention to George Soros or Warren buffet and who they are connected to in the realm of liberal democrat politics and egalitarian causes but the should be.  Yes, the rich do keep getting richer, but it is truly the evil rich who continue to escape notice and accountability for their evil. Meanwhile Americans are told otherwise by the same complicit media that suckles on the teats of egalitarianism and then denies that it exists.

RICHARD GRENELL: I think the media's becoming the story, let's face it. CBS News President David Rhodes and ABC News President Ben Sherwood, both of them have siblings that not only work at the White House, that not only work for President Obama, but they work at the NSC on foreign policy issues directly related to Benghazi. Let's call a spade a spade.
Let's also show you why CNN did not go very far in covering these hearings because the CNN deputy bureau chief, Virginia Moseley, is married to Hillary Clinton’s deputy, Tom Nides. It is time for the media to start asking questions why are they not covering this. It's a family matter for some of them.
JON SCOTT, HOST: So they don't want to bring embarrassment upon folks who, who they're close to?
GRENELL: Who directly are related to this story. Absolutely. They're covering for them. There's no question about it.

It's About Time Someone Spoke The Truth

Fallen Heroes Damned to Hell During US Government Memorial Service

"If this translation is valid, the notion that it was spoken over U.S. service members bodies at a funeral is potentially problematic"

Potentially problematic? I would think so. I would hope so. I would think that it would be a wee bit more than "problematic" for a Muslim cleric to even be present during the memorial of our honored dead. I would think that any right thinking American who is made aware of this travesty would also consider the act insidious and despicable to say the least.

How could something like this have been allowed to occur to begin with. There was no place for such an interjection of Islamic salutations into the solemn memorial service for these honored American heroes. They at the least deserved to be honored and remembered by those of their families and those of own faith, absent the presence of the evil that killed them having any say so or any opportunity to tarnish their memories with surreptitiously spoken evil. 

This revelation of dishonor is at least equally as evil as the betrayal of our honored dead in Bengazi. It is at least equally as evil as those responsible for the loss of the thirty one special forces killed that day in the downing of one Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan. Americans should have long since demanded an accounting of how that travesty could have occurred. Americans should have long since demanded to know why the Pentagon and the White House turned their backs on these honored dead and walked away absent any serious inquiry to how this occurred to begin with.

The Obama administration not only allows incidents like these to occur, but this administration in fact encourages them to occur in my observation. No investigation was ever conducted by the Pentagon or the White House of the shooting down of the helicopter carrying these honored dead and no investigation will be conducted into the travesty now being revealed of the intentional actions of a Muslim cleric who purposely besmirched their memorial service with  the filth of his faux prayers.  Equally as important, who in our military permitted such a travesty to occur to begin with and what accountability do they have in the wake of these revelations.

It is time for the American people to be made aware of the conduct and actions of this charlatan who occupies the white house and the man most responsible for allowing and tolerating these attacks and despicable acts against our nation and our people. The same man who has mocked and injured this nation since the first moment he set foot in office of the presidency.

Parents of fallen service members spoke at a press conference on Thursday morning, an event during which they accused the U.S. government of complicity in the deaths of their sons. The families highlighted a number of grievances, including the notion that military brass invited a Muslim cleric to their children’s funeral in 2011 — an imam who they claim “disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen.”
Three families of fallen Navy SEAL Team 6 special forces members and one family of an Army National Guardsman held the event at the National Press Club to make this startling allegation, among many others. Their children perished during the fatal Chinook helicopter crash that occurred in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011. The presser was an effort, as noted in a press release, to corroborate the notion that the U.S. government is “as much responsible for the deaths of their sons as is the Taliban.”

The prayer
As for the claim about the Muslim cleric, the families believe that the faith leader attempted to intentionally sully the memory of their sons by “damning them as infidels to Allah.” The group showed video of the prayer to prove their contentions, complete with translation.
Audio from the ceremony, which has been circling for at least a few months, includes a U.S. soldier speaking in English; he begins the ceremony by appealing to the “almighty and awesome God” and goes on to honor the fallen, speaking directly to God and invoking Christian scripture in doing so. After the presiding officer concludes, the imam’s purportedly controversial prayer begins; it is this latter portion that has sparked outrage among the families.

On Wednesday, TheBlaze spoke with attorney Larry Klayman who is representing the grieving parents to learn more about the Arabic comments in question. Noting that he has consulted with a certified translator, he paraphrased the meaning of the imam’s words as follows: “That the fallen seals should be damned and go to hell as infidels.”

If this translation is valid, the notion that it was spoken over U.S. service members bodies at a funeral is potentially problematic, although it should be noted that the prayer may have been intended only for the Afghan soldiers who perished. Let’s first explore what the Muslims leader said during his sermon. Here’s one translation that has been given of the cleric’s comments (this is the version that Klayman showed at the press conference along with video of the prayer):

What difference does it make?

Hopefully it makes a lot of difference with the American people, especially once they are finally told the truth. It will make a helluva lot of difference once the American people learn of Clinton's culpability and the intentional misdirection that she and the state department put forth to conceal her culpability and refusal to send aid to our people that night n Bengazi.

Guns are not the problem

Once again, the reality doesn't bear out the propaganda and the false headlines. Gun deaths are down and have been for over twenty years, but you wouldn't know that to listen to the screaming memes of media and Washington.



Gun crime has plunged, but Americans think it's up, says study


Gun crime has plunged in the United States since its peak in the middle of the 1990s, including gun killings, assaults, robberies and other crimes, two new studies of government data show.
Yet few Americans are aware of the dramatic drop, and more than half believe gun crime has risen, according to a newly released survey by the Pew Research Center.
In less than two decades, the gun murder rate has been nearly cut in half. Other gun crimes fell even more sharply, paralleling a broader drop in violent crimes committed with or without guns. Violent crime dropped steeply during the 1990s and has fallen less dramatically since the turn of the millennium.
The number of gun killings dropped 39% between 1993 and 2011, the Bureau of Justice Statistics reported in a separate report released Tuesday. Gun crimes that weren’t fatal fell by 69%. However, guns still remain the most common murder weapon in the United States, the report noted. Between 1993 and 2011, more than two out of three murders in the U.S. were carried out with guns, the Bureau of Justice Statistics found.

I blame her

This interview is a powerful essay on Bengazi and the hearings that are presently underway. Testimony continues today. Some believe that Bengazi will be the beginning of the end for the Obama administration. It should be.

And to tell the mother that she is not a member of the immediate family and therefore they cannot give her information that she is entitled to? Really?

Make no mistake, it is intentional

At least one US Senator believes that the Obama administration is deliberately attempting to dry up the ammunition supply in America, by buying up all of the ammunition.  It is time that the rest of congress and America start believing it too.

Obama administration trying to ‘dry up’ ammo supply

On Aaron Klein’s weekend show on New York City’s WABC radio, Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe accused the Obama administration of buying up ammunition at an unprecedented level to bypass the Second Amendment so gun-owners “can’t even buy ammunition because government is purchasing so much.”
“Let’s make sure that your audience out there is aware, Aaron, that our president, Obama, has been doing everything he could to stop the private ownership of guns in America,” Inhofe said. “You know that, everyone knows that. And yet he’s been voted down in a big way by a large majority. And so my feeling is that he’s doing this to buy up [ammunition] so that we can’t buy: Honest, law-abiding citizens here in the United States, like my son, can’t even buy ammunition because government is purchasing so much.”
Inhofe explained to Klein he is working to introduce the Ammunition Management for More Obtainability (AMMO) bill that will limit “non-defense, armed federal agencies to pre-Obama levels of ammunition.”
“It’s designed to have the GAO (that’s the Government Accounting Office) inventory — not the Defense Department, but all other departments that use weaponry — as to what they’re doing in terms of the amount of ammunition that they have bought to dry up the market for honest, law-abiding citizens,” Inhofe said.

The Russians are practicing for what?

Repetitively challenging our borders with nuclear strike aircraft, the Russians are becoming bolder by the day.  You decide. We have the weakest president in the history of this nation and the once defeated Soviets are gaining strength over us by the day as a result of our national complacency. How long before the Russoans assert their dominance globally and slap America down 

 U.S. F-22 / AP

Bears Buzz Alaska Again

Russian strategic bombers conducted flights within the U.S. defense zone close to northern Alaska and the Aleutian Islands last week in Moscow’s latest incident of nuclear saber rattling against the United States, according to defense and military officials.
Two Bear H nuclear-capable bombers were detected flying into the military’s Alaska Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) near the Aleutians, where a strategic missile defense radar is located, and Alaska’s North Slope region by the Arctic and Chukchi Seas on April 28 and 29, military officials told the Washington Free Beacon.
Lt. Cmdr. Bill Lewis, a spokesman with the U.S. Northern Command, confirmed the fighter intercept of the latest bomber incursion but declined to provide details.
“Two U.S. F-22′s from Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska, were launched and visually identified Russian aircraft on the night of April 28, as the Russian Air Force flew standard out of area flights near Alaska,” Lewis said.
The bombers did not enter U.S. airspace, he said.
However, the Alaska ADIZ is a formal national security zone used by the military to monitor both civilian and military aircraft. The dispatch of F-22s is an indication the bomber flights posed a potential threat to U.S. territory.
It was the fifth incident of Russian strategic bombers flying against the United States since June, when Bear bombers were intercepted near Alaska during a large-scale Russian strategic nuclear exercise that Russian military officials said involved practice strikes against U.S. missile defense sites in Alaska.
Less than a month later, on July 4, two more Bears flew the closest to the northern California coast that Russian aircraft have flown since the days of the Soviet Union.
Then in February two Bears circled Guam, a key U.S. military hub in the Pacific.
Additionally, Backfire strategic bombers flew simulated strikes against U.S. missile defenses and bases in Japan last month.

$201.68 per 100 lbs

 For those paying attention?  The DOW hit 15K this week, the jobs report on unemployment was down to 7.5 ans the world is a beautiful place once again according to Washington.  Or is it really. The other numbers aren't reflecting the joy being propagandized to the people.

9.5 million who have lost their jobs in the last five years who have not re-entered the job force and the steady increase of inflation and the cost of living tell a quite different story than the rosy glow that Obama is hustling. We are steadily being told that everything is alright and everything is OK, meanwhile the cost of living has more than doubled during the last five years. Jobs and salaries have continued to decline and every day that passes the cost of food and the cost of energy are creeping up becoming more and more expensive.  $9 a pound steaks, $4 a pound ground beef are already here and $4 a gallon gas will arrive for Memorial day like clock work. Meanwhile the media hyped meme remains everything is alright, don't worry, quantitative easing is keeping everything real.

Really?  When the crash comes (and soon) it will make Black Tuesday of 1929 look like an upset stomach. The American economy is on the highway to hell on  a greased rail and no one is paying attention.

US beef prices set new high as spring barbecue season heats up

The cold soggy start to spring put outdoor cookouts on hold throughout most of April, but temperatures are seen climbing in the coming weeks, prompting grocers to stock up for a seasonal bump in sales of steaks, burgers and other cookout favorites.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Friday reported the wholesale price for choice beef, commonly called the cutout, at $201.68 per 100 lbs (cwt), eclipsing the previous record of $201.18 set on Oct 16, 2003.
"You're now finally getting the seasonal rally occurring for beef that's about three-weeks late getting started," said Chicago-based Linn Group analyst John Ginzel.
"I suspect some retailers are booking product for Memorial Day features," he said.
National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) weekly retail scanner data shows Memorial Day ranks third in weekly holiday beef retail sales at about $370 million, behind U.S. Labor Day sales of $380 million. The U.S. July Fourth holiday is No. 1 at around $400 million.

California is bankrupt, but they have money for gun confiscation

The morning headlines also include push polls asking whether the California law should become a model for the nation. Those polls are running way above 90% NO, but that will not dissuade those earnestly seeking to confiscate all guns in America from continuing to pursue their agenda.

Wake up America. Liberal/Socialism is like a cancer, it never goes away. It has to be excised and massive doses of corrective actions have to be taken if the patient is to ever hope to survive.  As a result of liberals and their advancement of egalitarianism in this country, America is literally in hospice care right now and the nation as a whole doesn't even realize it.

California is broke, busted, bankrupt, yet look at the socialist agendas they continue to push forth and fund to the very last breath of the state treasury.

Brown OKs funds to confiscate guns from criminals, mentally ill

Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday signed legislation aimed at taking handguns and assault rifles away from 20,000 Californians who acquired them legally but have since been disqualified from ownership because of a criminal conviction or serious mental illness.
The measure, the first of several gun-related bills to reach the governor,  allocates $24 million in surplus funds to hire dozens of additional special agents to tackle a backlog of 40,000 weapons in the hands of people not allowed to possess firearms.
“This bipartisan bill makes our communities safer by giving law enforcement the resources they need to get guns out of the hands of potentially dangerous individuals,” said Evan Westrup, a spokesman for the governor.
The state operates a database that cross-references a list of gun owners with those disqualified later from owning guns. But, budget cuts have prevented the state Department of Justice from keeping up with the growing number of people on the list.
State Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) introduced SB 140, which takes the money from fees paid when people buy guns and allocates it to a three-year campaign to take guns from those ineligible to have them.
“We know for the safety of our communities that these people should not possess guns, and our reinvestment in this tracking program gives us the opportunity to confiscate them,” Leno said in a statement.

Step Right Up Little Lady! Get Your Plan B with them Skittles!

I say put em right between the Skittles and the Snickers bars. Maybe offer a discount on Reece's Pieces for first time buyers of this newest addition to the liberal rhetoric of right of access.

Several things come to my mind when I read of things like this. Being told that it would never happen leaps to my mind. Being told by politicians that the government would never subsidize such a thing is another example of my thoughts having read this report.

Why not lower the age to 10?  Some girls become hormonally mature at age 9!  Why discriminate? And to hell with thinking or believing that a child's parents should have any say so in such a thing. They abdicated their parental rights the day the child was born into a modern day American post contemporary family unit. Just ask any civil libertarian they will tell you. This is all perfectly alright in the minds of liberalism.

 FDA lowers age for buyers of Plan B pill to 15
In a surprise twist to the decade-plus effort to ease access to morning-after pills, the government is lowering the age limit to 15 for one brand - Plan B One-Step - and will let it be sold over the counter.
Today, Plan B and its generic competition are sold behind pharmacy counters, and people must prove they're 17 or older to buy the emergency contraception without a prescription. A federal judge had ordered an end to those sales restrictions by next Monday.
But Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration approved a different approach: Plan B could sit on drugstore shelves next to condoms, spermicides or other women's health products - but to make the purchase, buyers must prove they're 15 or older at the cash register.
Manufacturer Teva Women's Health, which had applied for the compromise path, said it planned to make the switch in a few months.
