Article: The President has a list

“The President has a list.” 

“ Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.
Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for "betting against America," and accuses you of having a "less-than-reputable" record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.
Are you worried?
Richard Nixon's "enemies list" appalled the country for the simple reason that presidents hold a unique trust. Unlike senators or congressmen, presidents alone represent all Americans. Their powers—to jail, to fine, to bankrupt—are also so vast as to require restraint. Any president who targets a private citizen for his politics is de facto engaged in government intimidation and threats. This is why presidents since Nixon have carefully avoided the practice.
Save Mr. Obama, who acknowledges no rules. This past week, one of his campaign websites posted an item entitled "Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney's donors." In the post, the Obama campaign named and shamed eight private citizens who had donated to his opponent. Describing the givers as all having "less-than-reputable records," the post went on to make the extraordinary accusations that "quite a few" have also been "on the wrong side of the law" and profiting at "the expense of so many Americans."

Say, have you used your God-Given and Constitutional Right to contribute to somebody’s Presidential Campaign?  It doesn’t matter who you gave to, but did you give?  If you did, isn’t it wonderful to live in a free Country where you can do such things without fear of reprisals by an out of control government?  Or an out of control megalomaniac who doesn’t give a flying leap for the rule of law? 

Yes Virginia, I’m talking about “Mmm!  Mmm!  Mmm!  Barack Hussein Obama!” the one on the Oval Orifice who doesn’t care about the Constitution.  He wouldn’t know what it was if it knocked him over.  (NOTE TO the Slackless Service and Department of Hussein’s Sycophants; I am not advocating violence against the Obamessiah.  This is used to illustrate a point.)

Perhaps after I donate to Mr Romney’s campaign, using my God-Given and Constitutional right to do so, Mr Obama will send the Slackless Service (oh, I’m sorry, the Secret Service!) to investigate me.  Hopefully, those agents will keep their trousers on and their “Anthony Wieners” inside?  Or he could order Janet Clownitano and the Department of Hussein’s Sycophants to arrest me?  WAIT!  Why doesn’t he send a TSA “officer” to feel me up!  After all, it appears to be all they’re good for.  That, and making toddlers cry.  That sweet 4-year old girl sure looked like a terrorist to me.  She must’ve been to a Tea Party protest. 

Or Mr Obama could send his butt-buddy Mr Richard Trumka out here to “ … take me out.”  Note to Mr Trumka, you come out here, you come by yourself, child.  Then you can show me man to man and face to face (without any of your goons) how mature you are.  Think you can do that?  Because I don’t.  Just to keep you honest (I’m trying not to spit as I write that) I’ll have a member of Law Enforcement of my choosing here.  Just to make sure you obey the rule of law.  Of course, fat chance of that happening.

Tamara Holder owned on Hannity


Tamara Holder got her head handed to her.  You might’ve seen it, if not, there’s a link to it at the bottom of the post, but she and Michelle Malkin were on Hannity recently. 

Ms Holder brought up the “fact” that unemployment has gone down under Mr Obama.  Actually, it’s gone up.  She does have a partial point; it’s not as high as it had been, but the fact remains that it is still higher than it was when Obama got in office. 

She also played another of the liberal’s cards; and that is the idiot or ‘uninformed’ or ‘stupid’ card.  “Well, the stretch is that the average person does not really understand that the large, enormous debt that you continue to talk about really doesn’t hit the person at home as much as … ” and then Mr Hannity started talking over her. 

So here we see that we just don’t understand that this massive debt hits us at all.

Mr Hannity also challenged Ms Holder to point out one area where Mr Obama has made things better.  Foreclosures aren’t as high as they’ve been under Obama’s watch, but even they are still higher than they were under Mr Bush. 

Now, I’ve taken Mr Bush to task as well for pre-socializing the economy for Mr Obama. 

And then, when Mr Hannity brought up the fact that Ms Holder was wrong on everything she said, she picked up another of the liberal’s favourite playing cards:  the name-calling one. “The guy (Mitt Romney) is border-line brain-dead and makes things up as he goes along.  He has no idea what he’s doing and he’s not gonna win …” and I didn’t understand the word after that. 

So, in the span of the 6:55 clip, she used two of the liberals favourite playing cards:  the uninformed (or stupid card) and that we just don’t understand about the debt, and the name-calling card and called Mr Romney “ … border-line brain-dead … “  You gotta love the libs!

The link:

Credit Where it's due: Obama was right.

What a difference 3+ years makes!

Does anybody remember this moment in Fargo, ND, when then-Senator Obama said this: ?

“ The problem is, is that the way that Bush has done it over the last eight years, is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China (*) in the name of our children, driving up our National Debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 Presidents, number 43 added $4 trillion all by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that, that we are going to have to pay back. $30 thousand for every man, woman, and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s un-patriotic.”

I believe in giving credit where it’s due, and Mr Obama was right. Adding $4 trillion over eight years was absolutely irresponsible and reckless. And those who were screaming about it had every right to do so. It was reckless, and it remains reckless.

But now we fast-forward to today, 20-MAR-2012. From CBS News no less, we learn this:

“(CBS News) The National Debt has now increased more during President Obama's three years and two months in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush presidency.
The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office.

The latest posting from the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department shows the National Debt now stands at $15.566 trillion. It was $10.626 trillion on President Bush's last day in office, which coincided with President Obama's first day.

The National Debt also now exceeds 100% of the nation's Gross Domestic Product, the total value of goods and services.

Mr. Obama has been quick to blame his predecessor for the soaring Debt, saying Mr. Bush paid for two wars and a Medicare prescription drug program with borrowed funds.

The federal budget sent to Congress last month by Mr. Obama, projects the National Debt will continue to rise as far as the eye can see. The budget shows the Debt hitting $16.3 trillion in 2012, $17.5 trillion in 2013 and $25.9 trillion in 2022.” (**)

However, with only a very few exceptions, those who were screaming the loudest about Mr Bush’s folly have remained strangely mute now.

Mr Bush added, according to CBS, $4.899 trillion to our debt over eight years.
Mr Obama added, according to CBS, $4.939 trillion over just over THREE years.


If what Mr Bush did was un-patriotic, which I agree it was, isn’t what Mr Obama’s done also un-patriotic?

Just asking.

(*) – This isn’t actually what it’s called. But at least Mr Obama correctly labeled China as a country. The citizens of Eau Claire, WI, however were quite surprised when Mr Obama referred to being in the State of Eau Claire. ( ) (This must be one of the 57 he said he’d been in: )

(**) -

This next link doesn’t actually have anything to do with this article, but I really enjoy it!

Ouch. I do NOT like this new look.

Ugh.  In my opinion, this new look of Blogger's ... sucks rocks.  I might come to like it over time, but for now ... it SUCKS.

"If I Wanted America to Fail"

The link:

Students Forced to do Opposition Research on Republicans

The link:

" The Daily Caller reported Thursday that 8th-grade students at Liberty Middle School in Fairfax County, Virginia, were forced to "support President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign by conducting opposition research in class against the Republican presidential candidates."

According to the Daily Caller, students in Michael Denman's class were given the assignment in mid-January. He reportedly broke the Civics Honor's class into four groups - one for each of the GOP Presidential candidates.

They were then told to research each of the candidate's backgrounds and positions, looking for weaknesses.

"From there," Kalyn McMackin wrote, "students were to prepare a strategy paper to exploit those weaknesses and then to send their suggestions to the Obama campaign."

“This assignment was just creepy beyond belief — like something out of East Germany during the Cold War,” one father told the Daily Caller. "

Yet another reason for those who home school their children to keep doing so.

Are you sure there's no liberal indoctrination in schools these days?

Article: Climate Alarmist Calls for Burning Down Skeptics Homes

The link:

" Writing for Forbes Magazine, climate change alarmist Steve Zwick calls for skeptics of man-made global warming to be tracked, hunted down and have their homes burned to the ground, yet another shocking illustration of how eco-fascism is rife within the environmentalist lobby. " (emphasis added.)

And these are the people calling for us to watch our rhetoric. Isn't that nice?

But they're not done!

" Earlier month we highlighted Professor Kari Norgaard’s call for climate skeptics to be likened to racists and ‘treated’ for having a mental disorder. In a letter to Barack Obama, Norgaard also called on the President to ignore the will of the people and suspend democracy in order to enforce draconian ecological mandates.

Opinion: We're Losing Our Republic


I’m glad that there are hearings now into the growing GSA scandal. And the GSA director, an Obama appointee, was forced to resign.

Having said that, and granted that the hearings are happening; I honestly don’t think that any lasting change is going to happen.

Sure, there have been brave words about the need for reform. And I think reform is needed. But first, the exact scope of the problem needs to be identified. Is it systemic, or just a few bad apples in an agency that does good, cost-effective work? In all honesty, I don’t know. And that’s just about the GSA.

Is there similar money-wasting going on in other agencies? We all know it’s happened in other administrations, but that doesn’t excuse it. We all know that it’s happened in other agencies, but that doesn’t excuse it either.

In my opinion, it is deeper than just this one agency. The government takes in vast amounts of money from us tax-payers, and the agency tasked with ensuring it’s not wasted … wastes it.

During the Tea Party protests, those of us calling for smaller government and for fiscal reform were called a variety of names, including “potential domestic extremists.”

In my opinion, this scandal simply makes our point for us. This shameful waste of tax-payer dollars should have been caught much earlier than it was.

The Republicans, hoping to score political points, have taken the ball and run with it. Granted, these hearings need to be held, those responsible need to be brought to justice, and steps taken to ensure that this shameful episode is not repeated.

But the tepid response from the Democrats simply goes to help make my next point for me: and that is that many in government, on both sides of the aisle, have forgotten where the money comes from. Indeed, former Congressman Joe Knollenberg said “It is not your money.” (*)

In my opinion, these hearings are going to be nothing but a dog-and-pony show. And that’s sad. Many of us believe that the federal government is hopelessly bloated. Those talking about fiscal reform are derided by the liberals and by those self-serving politicians who are too blind to see that we are only a few steps away from losing our Republic.

Judge Napolitano: Obama Close to Totalitarianism

Back to MS Word. I had something brilliant written, but Google doesn't like it. "Conflicting edits"

Now importing from MS Word:

The link:

We all, with the exception of Harry Reid and Chuckie Schumer, know that there are three separate but equal branches of the American government. These are:

The Executive (that’s the President. And I don’t know what he’s done other than play golf)

The Legislative (they enact new legislation)

-and- The Judiciary (they decide what is and what isn’t Constitutional.)

Of course, that’s just a very brief overview of the three branches. Three separate but equal branches of government.

Our Founding Fathers set it up this way, along with a system of checks and balances to help ensure that no one person, or no one branch, could usurp power over the others.

But consider Judge Napolitano’s quote:

“ I think the President is dangerously close to totalitarianism. A few months ago he was saying the Congress doesn’t count, the Congress doesn’t mean anything, I’m going to rule by decree and administrative regulation.

“ Now he’s basically saying the Supreme Court doesn’t count, it doesn’t matter what they think, they can’t review our legislation. That would leave just him as the only branch of government standing. So I think he has some problems with understanding the Consitution, or accepting limitations on his power.” (emphasis added)

Remember; three separate but equal branches of government.

TSA Makes Another Woman Cry

The link:

ONE CAVEAT for the liberals: This video was taken by a Conservative who runs a Conservative website. For those of us on the Right, we know that this could, and sometimes does, happen.


More Liberal "Tolerance" from the "Civility Police"

The link:

H/T: Michelle Malkin.

I wonder what those people criticising Rush Limbaugh would have to say about this?

The TSA and Airport (In)Security

A few things. First, yet another TSA inspector has been accused of stealing iPads. The link:

" According to airport police, a traveler reported Jan. 24 that his iPad 2 had been stolen and that he had traced it electronically to a home in Bedford owned by Dovel.

" While arresting Dovel in that case, airport police discovered another iPad in Dovel's leather satchel. Dovel told authorities that the iPad was his but that he couldn't remember where he bought it, according to police reports.

" Using that iPad's serial number, police traced it to a Grand Prairie man who had reported that it was stolen as he traveled through Terminal E in May. "

So they got him with two stolen iPads. But according to the article, this had been going on for the past eight months. It really makes me wonder how many more devices this person might have absconded with.

But there's also this:

Here we learn that "Big Sis," the Director of the Department of Homeland Security (Department of Hussein's Sycophants) might have perjured herself in testifying about the "Fast and Furious" scandal.

" Inside sources told Pavlich that Napolitano’s testimony was in direct contradiction to emails she exchanged, and reports and briefing she received, according to an exclusive preview of the book by Human Events. "

So Ms Clownitano's testimony was in direct contradiction to emails she had sent. Oops.

But the most damning thing, I think, is this:

The title is "Why Airport Security Is Broken - And How To Fix It."

The writer of the article, Mr Kip Hawley, is a former director of the TSA, so he should know.

" More than a decade after 9/11, it is a national embarrassment that our airport security system remains so hopelessly bureaucratic and disconnected from the people whom it is meant to protect. Preventing terrorist attacks on air travel demands flexibility and the constant reassessment of threats. It also demands strong public support, which the current system has plainly failed to achieve. "

But it goes further.

" I tried to follow these principles as the head of the TSA, and I believe that the agency made strides during my tenure. But I readily acknowledge my share of failures as well. I arrived in 2005 with naive notions of wrangling the organization into shape, only to discover the power of the TSA's bureaucratic momentum and political pressures. " (emphasis and italics added.)

You need to start at the top. Get rid of Ms Clownitano and the entire TSA is where I'd start.

Dem Posters Show Their Usual "Tolerance"

I won't repeat what some of those oh-so-holier-than-thou progressives (liberals) said, but I will make note that these are the exact same people who are telling us Conservatives to watch our "rhetoric."

More of the "do as I say, not as I do!" crap.


Ordinarily, I wouldn't link to it. But the unmitigated gall and hypocrisy needs to be shown.

Man Tries to Hold Up Bank ...

... using (and you'll never believe this until you read the article)

a toilet plunger.

The link:

He was arrested. The police might also want to see if he's mentally competant. I mean, I'm not the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but even I know a plunger's not gonna cut it!

Jersey Man Gives up Obama Flag.

The link:

The only reason I'm commenting on this is due to something Mr Kennedy said.

" “If someone had come to me in the beginning, I would have said, ‘Let’s sit down and talk to see what we might reasonably come up with as a solution.’” "

That sounds pretty good, doesn't it? He states he'd have been willing to reasonably consider a solution. Buuuut...

" “In Acacia, there are some angry, maybe even evil-minded people about Obama,” he tells KYW Newsradio.

" Kennedy stresses that he loves his community, but thinks people need to talk to each other reasonably about their differences. " (Italicized in article)

People do need to talk to each other reasonably about their differences, Mr Kennedy. But calling some of them " ... maybe even evil-minded ... " about Obama doesn't help!

It is, however, nice to know that you have the liberals talking-point down pat.

Call names.

Got it.

Democrat Calls for Cheney's execution

The link:

" Kruger made the statement through his Twitter account this past summer, saying, “Cheney deserves same final end he gave Saddam. Hope there are cell cams,” a reference to technology that would allow Kruger to watch the proposed execution of the former Vice President of the United States. " (emphasis NOT added, that appears in bold in the article.)

This from a member of the "Civility Police," the Democratic Party who have the unmitigated gall and audacity to tell us to watch our rhetoric.

You and I both know that had I stated this about a Democrat, the FBI (or perhaps the Secret Service ... or both!) would (RIGHTLY!!) be here in short order.

You and I also know that had it been a Republican who had uttered this outrage, the Democrats would (RIGHTLY!!) be all over it, stating that it " ... simply goes to prove the extreme views of the Republicans ... "

But he wasn't done!

"UPDATE 4/13 7:00am: Click here to listen to Kruger in a radio interview. At about 2 minutes in, he actually says ‘I wish we could have fun with this’. " (link is theirs and is left intact.)

Yeah. He states he was having fun, going for a laugh. Yeah, that's really funny.

Words for Thought ...

... having said that, please read the quote FIRST and then apply it to the current situation before you consider who said this ... or your answer. Hasn't Mr Obama done this? Just asking:

Remember: Just asking:

" Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around; to consider to most wretched sort of life as paradise.

" The receptive ability of the great masses is only very limited; their understanding is small. On the other hand, their forgetfullness is great. This being so, all effective propaganda should be limited to a very few points, which, in turn, should be used as slogans until even the very last man is able to imagine what is meant by such words."

- Adolf Hitler.

Remember; Just asking.

From the "Golden Oldies"

Or in this case, the Molden Oldies.

The link:

Yes, here we learn that Rep. Nancy Pelosi called for an investigation for those who opposed the construction of the mosque at Ground Zero ... yes, where the WTC once stood.

" 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." "

Question for Ms Pelosi; if it's 'un-American' to ask for an investigation as to where the money for the building of the mosque is coming from, then isn't it also 'un-American' to ask where the money for the opposition is coming from?

Just asking.

Or doesn't common sense and the rules that you bound us to also apply to you?

Just asking.
