Obama In MN: Pay No Attention To Those ‘Phony Scandals’ – They’re ‘Not On The Level’ (Video)

*The bear is loose and back on the permanent campaign trail to show “the folks” how hard he’s fighting for middle class families™

Speaking to a crowd in Minnesota, Thursday, Obama lamely decried “fabricated issues and phony scandals.”

“It’s all geared towards the next election or ginning up a base,” Obama muttered derisively. “Um…..it’s not on the level.”

It was a pathetic and unconvincing performance.  What  next? *”I am not a crook?”

A new Fox News Poll shows that  76% of Voters Think the IRS Emails Were Deliberately Destroyed. In other words, they think it’s his administration that’s not being “on the level.”

Via Freedom’s Lighthouse: 

Obama brought up a Minnesota  mother whose letter to the White House he used in his ongoing push to raise the minimum wage, but failed to explain how raising the minimum wage would help the accountant struggling in a stagnant, overly regulated economy.

No matter — this is why he ran, you guys – so he could help folks like this mom who reminds him of his own mom – and his g-ma, too – and he and Michelle 20 years ago. Obama reeked of insincerity as he tried to convince  his credulous audience that he could relate to middle America.

The truth? The truth is not so nice. Obama is a student of Saul Alinsky who understands that America’s white middle class is where the power lies. He not trying to help the middle class. He’s trying to destroy it. Which should be obvious, by now.

Mr. Obama has very clearly embodied Alinsky’s epiphany about the middle class. He has been pushing all the buttons of fear, division and partisanship on the one hand, and government benefits and promises of jobs on the other. The very last thing Obama wants, however, is a rising economy and people working. A good economy and jobs deflates the revolutionary possibilities. Every regulation, tax and Obama decree is geared to destroying the middle class. When people are living hand-to-mouth or living on benefits and having to jump through myriad regulatory hoops, they are unable to unite and fight the coming authoritarianism.

That is why it is so galling  to watch this guy cozy up to the middle class every election season. The very people he wants to murder, open the door and hand him the gun. It’s really quite nauseating.

* Obama keeps pushing this meme he apparently thinks has a high cool quotient: “The bear is loose!” he’s been saying for the past couple of weeks as he leaves the White House. And his fan bois in the press swoon in appreciation. “Obama said “the bear is loose, omg, isn’t that witty?!”

* It’s not my intention to defame President Nixon by comparing him to Obama. I’m just noting that Barry’s sounding comically defensive, these days.

 

Issa Subpoenas IRS Commissioner – IRS Required By Law To Keep Records of all Agency Emails

The Regime’s “dog ate my homework” excuse for losing 24,000 of 67,000 of Lois Lerner’s emails sent between 2009 and 2011 – ain’t gonna cut it.

Via the Daily Caller:

“The [Federal Records Act] requires agencies to make and preserve records of agency decisions, policies, and essential  transactions and to take steps to safeguard against the loss of agency records,” said House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, who subpoenaed IRS Commissioner John Koskinen Monday.

The IRS’s own definition of the Federal Records Act makes clear that emails must be saved and documented, according to an instructional page for employees on the IRS website.

“The Federal Records Act applies to email records just as it does to records you create using other media,” according to the IRS. “Emails are records when they are: Created or received in the transaction of agency business. Appropriate for preservation as evidence of the government’s function and activities; or Valuable because of the information they contain.”

“If you create or receive email messages during the course of your daily work, you are responsible for ensuring that you manage them properly,” according to the IRS. “The Treasury Department’s current email policy requires emails and attachments that meet the definition of a federal record be added to the organization’s files by printing them (including the essential transmission data) and filing them with related paper records. If transmission and receipt data are not printed by the email system, annotate the paper copy.”

Obviously, the White House is deeply involved in the IRS scandal-  Obama and his flunkies have made that abundantly clear with their ongoing efforts to poo-poo and controversialize a legitimate investigation into IRS malfeasance.

Josh Earnest deployed the Regime’s tried and true “conspiracy theory” defense on reporters aboard Air Force One, yesterday. This is how they (as Sharyl Attkisson so aptly put it) “controversialize” a story that’s damaging to the Regime. Read closely.

Asked by a reporter aboard Air Force One whether he thought the technical glitch was in fact a “reasonable explanation,” Earnest, the incoming press secretary, was at first dismissive.

“You’ve never heard of a computer crashing before?” Earnest asked.

Regime: “Move on, you guys, nothing to see, here.”

When pressed that emails are stored on servers and not hard drives, Earnest gave a more detailed response, including attacking Republicans in Congress.

“I think it’s entirely reasonable because it’s the truth and it’s a fact,” Earnest said. “And speculation otherwise I think is indicative of conspiracies that are propagated in a way that left people with a disinformation about exactly what occurred.”

Regime: “Do you want to align yourselves with tea party conspiracy theorists?” Reporters’ expected response: “Oh God, no.”

Earnest said the IRS provided 67,000 emails to and from Lerner to congressional committees. He said this included emails during the period of time that the IRS said the crash included.

“So a good-faith effort has been made by the IRS to cooperate with congressional oversight,” Earnest continued. “The far-fetched skepticism expressed by some Republican members of Congress is not at all surprising and not particularly believable.”

Actually, it’s Josh Earnest’s pathetic spin that isn’t believable.

Via Communities Digital News, here’s Charles Krauthammer’s reaction to that on Special Report, Monday night.

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer reminded viewers that one of the articles of impeachment brought against President Richard Nixon was the abuse of the IRS to pursue political enemies. A missing 18 ½ minutes of audio on Richard Nixon’s Watergate-era tapes versus 26 months of emails? “This is a high crime, this is not a triviality,” Krauthammer warned.

National Journal columnist Ron Fournier, who has, for the most part, been pretty supportive of the Obama administration had this sobering response: “Josh’s statement, with all due respect, is insulting to my intelligence — it really makes me angry. The reason there’s questions about this is because they haven’t answered the questions. The fact of the matter is that, we don’t know the facts, we don’t know if anybody is guilty here or not, but we do know that one of the most pernicious things our government can do is use the IRS to come after us.”

Obama White House is losing many of his liberal supporters because they can no longer defend him and retain any degree of self-respect. That leaves the hard left and the lofo default libs still in his camp.

Meanwhile, on another scandal front that the Regime has tried hard to controversialize: CNN Poll: 61% Say Obama Admin Has Been “Dishonest” With Details Of Benghazi Terror Attack…

(CNN) – Six in 10 Americans are dissatisfied with the way the Obama administration has handled the deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, a new poll shows.

The CNN/ORC International poll released on Monday indicates only 37% are satisfied with the administration’s response to the September 2012 assault that killed four Americans, including the ambassador to Libya. [...]

Sixty-one percent of Americans surveyed think the administration has generally been dishonest in providing information about Benghazi in the aftermath of the attack.

The truth is finally catching up to this criminal cartel of a White House.

With the public becoming more aware of the Regime’s ongoing corruption and lawlessness, can the political remedy of impeachment finally become a reality?

We really need to get this guy out of there before he does any more damage to this country. I don’t care if that means the simpleton Biden becomes president - anything is better than this malignant tumor that’s been plaguing the nation for five and a half God-awful years in the person of Barack Hussein Obama.

UPDATE:

This is so brazen…

Via NRO: 

It’s not just Lois Lerner’s e-mails. The Internal Revenue Service says it can’t produce e-mails from six more employees involved in the targeting of conservative groups, according to two Republicans investigating the scandal.

The IRS told Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp and subcommittee chairman Charles Boustany that computer crashes resulted in additional lost e-mails, including from Nikole Flax, the chief of staff to former IRS commissioner Steven Miller, who was fired in the wake of the targeting scandal.

The revelation about Lerner’s e-mails rekindled the scandal and today’s news has further inflamed Republicans. Camp and Boustany are now demanding a special prosecutor to investigate “every angle” of the targeting. They expressed particular outrage that the agency has known since February that it would not be able to produce the e-mails requested by the committee yet did not apprise the committee of that fact, and they charged in a statement that the IRS is attempting to “cover up the fact that it convenient lost key documents in the investigation.”

Ace says: “Because it’s politically chancey to even mention Impeachment, Obama is now basically daring the GOP to impeach him.”

I say, we take him up on the dare. I’ve had it with him, and so have most sentient beings.

UPDATE:

CBS News: Attkisson On Missing IRS Documents: If The Emails Really Are Lost, ‘That’s Quite A Story In Itself’

This is from a radio interview with Philadelphia talk show host Dom Giordano:

“These emails are not stored on a signal server or a single computer, so if there were a crash of a hard drive or some sort of system failure, they would still be retrievable. According to [John] Koskinen, the IRS Commissioner at the time, he told Congress that emails were stored offsite. That jives with people who said emails were backed up daily. There is a responsibility on the part of government officials to retain the data, make sure that is and can’t be lost in the system. If it’s true that the emails are lost, that’s quite a story in itself,” she said.

She thinks Congress should act fast to investigate if anyone inside the IRS is attempting to hide or destroy the emails.

“I would call in certain officials. Let’s assume there could have been some mischief committed — before they have time to get their stories straight and fix things up, I would get them in there under oath and start digging down and getting the timeline and getting people on the record about this. The only people that I see than can do this are members of Congress. The question is, do they have the will to do that?” Attkisson stated.

She goes on to make several other good points, including the fact that “the IRS is part of Healthcare.gov, if the IRS system can indeed be so vulnerable that some sort of crash can lose all kind of important data like this, what does t say about the federal system?”

Glenn Reynolds: “I think it’s fair at this point to assume that the “missing” emails are missing because someone in the White House was behind this.”

 

 

What to Heck? ‘Anarcho-Syndicalists’ Protest Their Own Conference (Video)

Wellp - this is making the rounds, today:

Anarcho-Syndicalists protest/get protested at their own conference. A panelist by the name of Kristian Williams was scheduled to speak at the annual Law & Disorder conference, but was thwarted by a protest. No one could actually articulate what their issue is with Mr. Williams. Campus police were eventually called in as the panelists fled.

No doubt an explanation of Anarcho-syndicalism is in order, amirite? Wikipedia to the rescue.

Anarcho-syndicalism (also referred to as revolutionary syndicalism[1]) is a theory of anarchism which views revolutionary industrial unionism or syndicalism as a method for workers in capitalist society to gain control of an economy and, with that control, influence broader society. Syndicalists consider their economic theories a strategy for facilitating worker self-activity and as an alternative co-operative economic system with democratic values and production centered on meeting human needs.

The basic principles of anarcho-syndicalism are solidaritydirect action (action undertaken without the intervention of third parties such as politicians, bureaucrats and arbitrators) and direct democracy, or workers’ self-management. The end goal of anarcho-syndicalism is to abolish the wage system, regarding it as wage slavery. Anarcho-syndicalist theory therefore generally focuses on the labour movement.[2]

Anarcho-syndicalists view the primary purpose of the state as being the defence of private property, and therefore of economic, social and political privilege, denying most of its denizens the ability to enjoy material independence and the social autonomy which springs from it.[3] In contrast with other bodies of thought, particularly with Marxism–Leninism, anarcho-syndicalists deny that there can be any kind of workers’ state, or a state which acts in the interests of workers, as opposed to those of the powerful, and that any state with the intention of empowering the workers will inevitably work to empower itself or the existing elite at the expense of the workers. Reflecting the anarchist philosophy from which it draws its primary inspiration, anarcho-syndicalism holds to the idea thatpower corrupts.[3]

None of these people speak in a language normal (privileged?) people can relate to. See if you can make sense of it. Content warning for extreme language, creepy chanting and  unbridled hateful outbursts:

They all need to find a “safe spot” and simmah dawn nah.

Spoiler Alert: New Liam Neesan Movie “Non-Stop” Is anti-American Garbage – NYC Audience Groaned When Villain Revealed

non_stop_poster-620x356

If you’ve seen the trailer for “Non-Stop”, you’ve probably thought – wow, that looks pretty good!  Looks like a real nail biter – my kind of movie.

I was definitely planning on seeing it. Until the word got out.

Take it away, John Nolte:

On an international flight over the Atlantic, burnt-out alcoholic flight marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) is hoping for a nice easy flight in first class where after sneaking a smoke and drink he might even be able to catch a little shut-eye. A text message informing him that one person on the flight will die every twenty-minutes unless $150 million is wired to an account, ruins that plan.

Counting pilots and crew, there are around 150 souls on board. Marks has 20 minutes to figure out which one is the bad guy. Red herrings abound. Is it one of the many actors whose faces we recognize but names we can’t remember? People start to die. Marks is fingered as the hijackert. Who’s doing this? Why are they doing this? What is their motive?

Here’s the answer:

It turns out that the villain is not a hijacker but a terrorist — someone who wants to murder everyone on the plane to further a political goal.

You ready…?

The terrorist is a 9/11 family member. Yes, you read that right; the terrorist is a 9/11 family-member who lost a loved-one in the World Trade Center on that terrible September morning.

It gets worse…

After 9/11,  this 9/11 family member-turned-terrorist then joined the military but found himself disillusioned by the pointless wars.

And now…

The 9/11 family member-turned-terrorist is upset because America hasn’t done enough to ensure there will never be another 9/11. And so he figures that if he can get an air marshal blamed for a terrorist attack, America will wake up and anally probe us before we’re allowed on a plane, or something.

It gets worse…

The villain’s sidekick is a member of the American military willing to murder 150 innocent people for a payday.

It gets worse…

The one passenger on the plane who is forever helpful, kind, reasonable, noble, and never under suspicion is a Muslim doctor dressed in traditional Muslim garb including a full beard.

Are you kidding me? They didn’t learn after all of the failed Bush era anti-Iraq War movies that their liberal PC propaganda doesn’t sell?

Glenn Beck talked about the movie on his radio show, yesterday, calling it possibly “the worst movie ever.” He and his co-hosts Pat, and Stu went to see the thriller because “all three guys are big fans of Neeson.”

Beck said that he fully expected that when he was back on the air, Friday, he would be able to recommend the film to his audience, but now he’s warning them not to waste their time or money.

“It is really great, until you find out that the killer… is a U.S. military guy who believes in the Constitution. Oh, did I just spoil Non-Stop? Oh, I should have said that there was a spoiler alert.”

Beck reported that the audience in NYC did not appreciate the plot twist.

“Here’s the thing: Even in New York City that got groans,” Glenn said. “Because you’re going through the whole movie, and it’s a good movie… [but] it’s not worth seeing once you know that they made the terrorist ex-military for the U.S… When it’s revealed, the audience in New York City went, ‘Oh, gee.’”

“It doesn’t even make sense,” Pat added. “And even the row of New Yorkers in front of us, I heard complaining about it after. For a second I thought I was in Texas. And I thought, no, wait! We’re in Manhattan!”

Ultimately, Glenn had a very simple message for anyone who was considering seeing Non-Stop this weekend: Don’t do it.

“Don’t see Non-Stop. It’s an insult. It’s an insult to anybody who believes in the Constitution and believes in our military,” Glenn concluded. “I said, ‘I make a promise to you: I will not treat our military the way we treated our Vietnam veterans.’ And we’re doing it now. We’re not taking care of their health, we’re dismissing them when they get back, and now we’re making them into our terrorists at our movies. And it’s the same weasely people that are doing it. Don’t go see Non-Stop.”

Not planning on it.

ACLJ Head Says Newly Discovered IRS Emails Are A “Smoking Gun” – Calls For Special Prosecutor

Jay Sekulow, chief counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice, is representing 41 conservative groups that say they were illegally targeted by the IRS.

After testifying on the scandal before the House Oversight committee yesterday, he appeared on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom to talk about the latest.

During his testimony, he pointed to what he called “smoking gun” emails sent by former IRS official Lois Lerner that directly contradict the Regime’s claims that there wasn’t a “smidgen of corruption.”

Via Fox News Insider:

The emails were released by the House Ways and Means Committee as part of its probe of the IRS scandal.

Sekulow explained that the emails show Lerner in contact with the IRS’ chief counsel and other top lawyers at least a year before the scandal became public. He said that Lerner wrote about coming up with new rules to restrict non-profit groups.

“They wanted to do it ‘off-plan,’ which means off the books so it’s not on the public calendar. And all of that was taking place while the targeting was going on,” he explained. Sekulow says the emails disprove the Obama administration’s story about the targeting originating in a remote office among lower level IRS agents.

“Legally, the IRS has been caught red-handed and the American people and certainly our plaintiffs are not taking it lying down,” said Sekulow. He believes a special prosecutor must be called on to investigate, since the head of the current probe has been found to be a big Obama campaign donor.

“When you see these emails and you understand what’s in them, you realize the highest level of the IRS was conspiring with Lois Lerner at least a year before this scandal broke. And what they’ve attempted to do now is just cover their tracks.”

“The reality is, the more information that comes out – including the information that we are now receiving with the high level IRS Chief Counsel involved with this – I think this is the smoking gun in this case, and of course the Chief Counsel is appointed by the President of the United States,” Sekulow said.

In a statement after the hearing, Sekulow said:

The Obama Administration refuses to provide Americans with the truth about the unlawful and unconstitutional targeting scheme by the IRS – a scheme that violated the First Amendment rights of numerous Tea Party and conservative groups,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ, following today’s hearing. “The latest proclamation from President Obama himself – asserting that there’s ‘not even a smidgen of corruption’ at the IRS – simply fails to reflect the facts.”

It is difficult to overstate the extent and magnitude of federal government misconduct so far uncovered,” added Sekulow. “In our lawsuit, we provide specific evidence that focuses on no less than 12 IRS officials, including the IRS’s Commissioner and Chief Counsel. The facts clearly show that our clients were unlawfully singled out because of their political views – a politically-motivated attack designed to derail the emergence of a new political movement. With the Obama Administration continuing its strategy of denial and deflection, Congressional oversight is absolutely essential. That’s why the work of this – and other – committees must continue unimpeded.”

Meanwhile, Republican leaders are requesting that the newly appointed IRS commissioner scrap the new 501 (C) (4) rule that would codify into law the illegal targeting…

“This proposed rule is an affront to free speech itself,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

The letter — signed by House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and others — marks the most coordinated effort yet by the GOP to fight the rule change, first proposed in November.

The letter comes as more conservative groups testified Thursday about IRS targeting, before a House oversight subcommittee.

“They were harassed at the hands of their very government,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said.

There are currently 22,587 comments on the rule change at the Regulations.gov website - almost all of them negative.

Does the Regime really think they’re going to get away with this?

PA Rep and Police Union President Voice Profound Opposition to Obama’s Radical DOJ Nomination (Video)

dscf0029qa5

Up is down, down is up, wrong is right, right is wrong. Only in Obama’s America would the DOJ persecute the Little Sisters of the poor – but appoint a cop killer’s attorney to top civil rights position. Up with the defenders of  killers…down with the defenders of life.

Adegbilem spent the last decade engaging in extreme racial politics as the Legal Defense and Education Fund of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

He is an opponent of criminal-background checks by employers, and a supporter of extreme racial-hiring quotas. But it’s his work trying to free the unrepentant cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, that has the hundreds of thousands of law enforcement officers represented by the National Fraternal Order of Police appalled that the president would appoint him to a top spot in the Justice Department.

Chuck Canterbury, President of the National Fraternal Order Of Police sent a hard hitting letter to the president, expressing “extreme disappointment, displeasure and vehement opposition” to Adegbile’s nomination.”

In another scathing letter to the President, PA Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick wrote, “Respectfully,  I could not be more incensed and confounded by the nomination of Mr. Debo Adegbile as the next Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice,” Fitzpatrick opened the letter. “Under Mr. Adegbile’s leadership, non-profit attorneys were recruited to defend convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. Jamal’s cold-blooded murder of Officer Faulkner is not in doubt. The efforts of those attorneys perverted the justice system and have made a mockery of the jury’s verdict and the court’s sentence.”

“A shameless ‘cottage industry’ of money and promotion has arisen from Jamal’s heinous act which continues to torture Officer Faulkner’s widow and family,” continued Fitzpatrick. “This nomination is a direct affront to the thousands of law enforcement officials who serve in harm’s way to protect our families, and the communities who rely on their service and sacrifice.”

Last night, Megyn Kelly had on both men to talk about Obama’s nomination of the radical attorney, Debo Adegbilem to be the nation’s top civil rights lawyer.

Kelly asked Fitzpatrick what it said about the nominee that he would involve himself in the case of unrepentant cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Fitzpatrick said, “his attorney’s, at the conclusion (of his trial overturning the death sentence) attended a rally in the city of Philedelphia and said they could not have been prouder than  to have the opportunity - not to represent justice, not to fight for the constitution, but to represent Mumia Jamal.  And the fact that they chose to insert themselves in this 33 year old case, pretty much tells you everything you need to know about this nominee and about the administration’s committment to constitutional and civil rights of victims and of police officers.”

PhillyMag.com asked, Was Obama Wrong to Nominate Mumia Lawyer Debo Adegbile to DOJ?

 

Of course, lawyers represent bad people all the time, right? Canterbury addresses that point as well:

We are aware of the tried and true shield behind which activists of Adegbile’s ilk are wont to hide–that everyone is entitled to a defense; but surely you would agree that a defense should not be based on falsely disparaging and savaging the good name and reputation of a lifeless police officer.

Certainly any legal scholar can see the injustice and absence of ethics in this cynical race-baiting approach to our legal system.

Meanwhile, Maureen Faulkner, the widow of the police officer whom Abu-Jamal was convicted of gunning down, went on Fox News to express her disgust at the nomination:

In Adegbile’s corner, there are 75 organizations that have signed on to a letter to the United States Senate, urging the senators to confirm the nomination. Those organizations include everyone from the AFL-CIO to the National Center for Transgender Equality to the National Bar Association.

The poll shows 75% of respondents agreeing with the Republicans, the Police Union and Faulkner’s widow.

22% agree with Obama and the transgender community, AFL-CIO and Bar Assoc that it ain’t no big deal –  lawyers represent bad people all the time. Another 3% say Adegbile should be given a medal because Mumia’s innocent.

Slain Officer’s Widow: Obama’s Nomination of Cop-Killer Mumia’s Attorney “Like Spitting On All Our Officers”

Slain Officer’s Widow: Obama’s Nomination of Cop-Killer Mumia’s Attorney “Like Spitting On All Our Officers”

Obama has sppointed some shockingly inept and/or radical individuals to positions of power, these past five years, but his pick be the nation’s top civil rights lawyer is his worst appointment, yet.  

Adegbilem spent the last decade serving as the Legal Defense and Education Fund of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

He is a staunch affirmative action supporter who is an opponent of criminal-background checks by employers, and a supporter of extreme racial-hiring quotas. But it’s his work trying to free the unrepentant cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, that has the hundreds of thousands of law enforcement officers represented by the National Fraternal Order of Police appalled that the president would appoint him to a top spot in the Justice Department.

Yesterday, they sent  a hard-hitting letter to Obama,  expressing “extreme disappointment, displeasure and vehement opposition” to Adegbile’s nomination.

 Judicial Watch reported:

In a hard-hitting letter to President Obama, the group expresses “extreme disappointment, displeasure and vehement opposition” to Adegbile’s nomination. “As word of this nomination spreads through the law enforcement community, reactions range from anger to incredulity,” the letter says, reminding that there is no disputing that Officer Faulkner was murdered by the “thug” who Adegbile continues defending.

“This nomination can be interpreted in only one way: it is a thumb in the eye of our nation’s law enforcement officers,” the letter continues. “It demonstrates a total lack of regard or empathy for those who strive to keep you and everyone else in our nation safe in your homes and neighborhoods—sometimes giving their lives in the effort.” Adegbile will certainly exacerbate the growing division and distrust between law enforcement and minority communities, the FOP claims. The group ends by telling the commander-in-chief of its hope that candidates with records of “fairness and respect to all Americans” are considered for future leadership positions in the administration.

Fox New’s Megyn Kelly had on Maureen Faulker (Wife of slain police officer killed in line of duty) and J. Christian Adams (Former Department of Justice Official) to get their reactions.

Adams said that “to defend a cop killer –  by choice – should disqualify you from a position at the Justice Department”, and then he went on to discuss Adegbilem’s  radical racial background.

Faulkner was positively seething. At the end of the segment, she said that Obama nominating such a person to a top position at the Justice Department “is like spitting on all our officers and our federal agents throughout America.”

Kelly ended the segment by noting that the police have vowed to fight this nomination until can be fought no longer.

The NAACP LDF under Adegbile’s leadership, offered legal representation to Mumia Abu-Jamal, the murderer of Philadelphia police officer Danny Faulkner in several legal proceedings.

 Born Wesley Cook, the former Black Panther often referred to affectionately in radical circles as simply “Mumia,” enjoys celebrity status on the Left and is a frequent guest speaker at college commencement ceremonies.

 “The question of Abu-Jamal’s guilt is not a close call,” according to John Fund. “Two hospital workers testified that Abu-Jamal confessed to them: ‘I shot the motherf***er, and I hope the motherf***er dies.’ His brother, William, has never testified to his brother’s innocence even though he was at the scene of the crime. Abu-Jamal himself chose not to testify in his own defense.”

 As Faulkner tried to arrest Abu-Jamal’s brother during a traffic stop, Abu-Jamal shot the policeman once in the back and then stood over him and shot him four more times at close range, once directly in the face. Multiple eyewitnesses were present during the crime.

Good News: The NSA Spies on All U.S. Persons Equally

Obama-Spying

The openly Socialist Senator Benie Sanders  pressed the NSA on Friday to come clean on  whether its highly questionable spying practices extended to members of Congress. “Has the NSA spied, or is the NSA currently spying, on members of Congress or other American elected officials?” Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., asked in a letter to NSA Director Gen. Keith Alexander released from the senator’s office.

Fox News reported:

Sanders, who has introduced legislation to curtail the agency’s spying capabilities, said the United States must be “vigilant and aggressive” in protecting the nation from terrorism, but he also cited U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon’s recent ruling that certain practices by the NSA are “almost Orwellian.”

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, responded to Sanders’ letter, saying it’s a question “millions of Americans would like answered.”

On Saturday, the NSA responded to Sanders’ query, saying Congress has “the same privacy protections as all U.S. persons.” Not the most reassuring of answers given the fact that the NSA has been spying on all US persons.

“NSA’s authorities to collect signals intelligence data include procedures that protect the privacy of U.S. persons. Such protections are built into and cut across the entire process. Members of Congress have the same privacy protections as all U.S. persons,” said the agency in a statement obtained by CNN.

The response goes on to promise the agency will continue to work with Congress on the issues – without ever addressing the senator’s real question.

Via the  WaPo:

 The answer is telling. We already know that the NSA collects records on virtually every phone call made in the United States. That program was renewed for the 36th time on Friday. If members of Congress are treated no differently than other Americans, then the NSA likely keeps tabs on every call they make as well.

It’s a relief to know that Congress doesn’t get a special carve-out (they’re just like us!). But the egalitarianism of it all will likely be of little comfort to Sanders.”

 

 

 

 

White House Official: Obama Would Rather Default Than Sit Down And Negotiate With Republicans

Well, we’re entering some dangerous territory here, alright. Obama is using his and his supporters’ contempt for the Republican party to allow him to send the economy into a tailspin. He wants this – not only because he thinks he can blame the Republicans….he just wants this.

Via The Hill:

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Monday that President Obama is putting the economy at risk by refusing to negotiate with Republicans over spending and the debt ceiling.

“The president’s refusal to negotiate is hurting our economy and putting our country at risk,” Boehner said on the House floor.

Boehner expressed disbelief at reports that Obama would rather see a debt default than talk to Republicans.

“This morning, a senior White House official this morning said that the president would rather default than to sit down and negotiate,” he said. “Really?”

“The American people expect when their leaders have differences, and we’re in a time of crisis, that we’ll sit down and at least have a conversation,” he added. “Really, Mr. President, it’s time to have that conversation before our economy is put further at risk.”Boehner rarely speaks on the House floor, but this was his third appearance in the last week. It also follows a Sunday appearance on ABC’s “This Week” in which he insisted he would not agree to bring a “clean” debt ceiling hike to the floor, and argued it would not pass.

UPDATE:

Here is Boehner’s speech on the House floor: POTUS Would Rather Default Than Negotiate:

The GOP conference released this video to illustrate the unreasonable position of the White House.

Today, Jay Carney lashed out at ABC’s Jonathan Karl for asking a question about the debt ceiling:

Fox News Insiders: Is A Government Shutdown Inevitable? (Video)

“Is a government shutdown Monday night inevitable?” asked “Political Insiders” Pat Caddell, Doug Schoen, and John LeBoutillier with Gregg Jarrett on Fox News, yesterday afternoon. Naturally the Insiders think the Republicans are committing “Hari Kari” by employing the Defund strategy.  They’ve been warning against that for weeks, and say going with the Delay strategy is too late in coming. One thing they’ve got right, is the Republicans haven’t played their cards right. But I would say they haven’t been pushing hard enough against this unstable, untrusted, and scandal-plagued administration. I’ve been saying that for six months. This horrific Regime should have 0 credibility with the American people by now. The media have propped Obama up, and the Stupid Party have helped them do it.

Boehner didn’t put the Vitter Amendment in the House bill, “because they’re all in on this,” Caddell charged.  “Do you think the Republicans are in the tank?” Jarrett asked Caddell. “Well – yeah…what do you think?” Caddell answered, evoking Benghazi during the crosstalk. What a pathetic situation we’re in.

Obama’s poll numbers continue to look weak – but nowhere near as bad as they should be. The political insiders are way too impressed by poll numbers, by way. Leaders aren’t governed by polls..

Obama Cancels LA Fund Raiser To Work On Syrian Resolution

las vegas

After the horrific terrorist attack that claimed four American lives in Benghazi, last September 11, Obama saw no reason to cancel the fundraiser he had planned for Las Vegas the next day. He was in the midst of  a tough reelection fight and he wasn’t about to let a little bump in the road like Benghazi get in the way of scoring major $$$ for his campaign. He didn’t bother with his daily intel briefings, that week, either. His flunkies were working on a great cover story (it was all about a Youtube video.) He knew the MFM would cheerfully disseminate the disinformation, his minions would shout down anyone who expressed doubt in the story.. Everything was under control. Life was good for Obama. Why not party?

But now, it’s not an election year anymore and the media isn’t being quite as helpful…Obama is on the verge of losing the vote on Syria in the House – and losing BIG – like a chump  - in spectacular, humiliating fashion. 

WaPo’s blog The Fix has been updating their whip count on the Syria resolution all day and at this point, it looks like the president is heading for a disastrous fall.

In fact, it’s no contest. As of Thursday evening, 204 House members — including 54 Democrats — have come out publicly against taking military action against Syria or are leaning that way. Two hundred seventeen votes are needed for passage. (Note: There are 433 members due to two vacancies.)

***

Only 24 members are in favor of the resolution.

How bad is it? President Obama has cancelled a Hollywood fundraising trip next week in order to stay in Washington, trying to salvage what’s left of his presidency:

President Obama has scrapped a planned two-day trip to Los Angeles early next week ahead of a congressional vote on a military strike against Syria.

The cancellation of the trip suggests the urgency with which Obama needs to press his case to win approval from Congress for military action.

“The president’s trip to California has been canceled,” a White House official said. “He will remain in Washington to work on the Syrian resolution before Congress.”

Drastic measures are called for including maybe even giving up some golf until he gets this thing taken care of.

See, after four and a half years of scandals, leading from behind, going over Congress’ head, hyper-partisan sneering at Republicans, and using every dirty Alinsky trick in the book, suddenly it’s time to drop what he’s doing and get down to some serious work!

Obama has a presidency to salvage.

Loophole: Immigrants Being Told to use “Key Words” to Cross Border – Border Patrol Overwhelmed (Video)

This is just swell.

Border Patrol agents are being overwhelmed by a sudden influx of immigrants coming across the Southern border seeking asylum in the United States because they have a  “credible fear” of Mexican Drug Cartels.

At least 200 immigrants came through a Border Crossing near San Diego last week – all using the key words.

“We are being overwhelmed”, one Border Patrol agent said.

Noisy Room’s Teresa Monroe Hamilton calls it Cloward and Piven on the Southern Border:

In a clever plan that was communist in its inception and by its design, the Cloward and Piven Strategy has been used successfully in regards to Amnesty. David Horowitz of Discover the Networks defined it succinctly:

The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

***

Meanwhile, using the Dream Act, violent illegal alien criminals are being released from our prisons. They are being set free onto American streets to wreak havoc and reap state benefits, while we foot the bill in more ways than one.

James Simpson, an incredible writer and researcher, has documented the use of communistic plans by the Gang of Eight and the other elitists seeking Amnesty for 20 to 30 million invaders. Another ringing the alarm bells on a permanent Progressive voting majority being built out of the invasion from the South is Trevor Loudon of New Zeal. Simpson has this to say on Trevor’s upcoming book:

The U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” immigration-reform plan, as well as a strikingly similar plan now being backed by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and a bi-partisan House “Gang,” both offer the “roadmap to citizenship” originally conceived and carefully developed by members of the Communist Party USA working within the Democratic Party and the radical left activist network for the purpose of using amnestied illegals to build a “permanent progressive majority.”

That is the inescapable conclusion readers will draw after reading the forthcoming book by acclaimed researcher and blogger Trevor Loudon, titled “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress.” Although not yet published, Loudon agreed to allow WND readers to preview one chapter, titled “Latino Immigrants: Tools to Ensure a ‘Governing Coalition’ for the Left.”

Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment – Missouri Represents

overpasseskc3

Today, patriots from across the nation are protesting not only this corrupt president, but the broken system that  allows him to trample on the Constitution unimpeded.

Overpasses for Obama’s impeachment mission statement:

Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment has a simple goal.. The removal of the corrupt and criminal President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama.

His actions go unimpeded, our pleas through petitions unanswered. Our calls and letters to Congress are left ignored and unopened.

Our only peaceful recourse is to take to the streets and overpasses of America and DEMAND that our nation be returned to We the People, and that Barack Hussein Obama be Impeached, removed from office, and held accountable for his actions while serving as President.

America is in its greatest time of peril in since the Founding Fathers bravely fought in the Revolutionary War. Lady Liberty is calling YOU to stand up, to speak out, to take to the streets and DEMAND that the corrupt tyrant be removed from the White House, and all of those who colluded with him in his crimes against the United States be held accountable to the full extent of the law, with the maximum sentences handed down upon them.

When you grow old, would you rather tell your grandchildren that you stood up for Freedom, or would you rather tell them you did nothing as America fell to the iron fisted grip of tyranny?

Lots of honks and thumbs ups  from cars and trucks greeted this group of conservatives at the I-70 overpass at Lees Summit Rd in South Kansas City as the drove by.

In St. Joe an overpass activist said, “they were loving it up here. And god bless those truck drivers and their air horns, especially when the news station is trying to interview you. Lol.”

An overpass activist wrote on FB, “Poured down rain in here in Springfield but we pressed on and got our point across. Loved it. This evening will be even better I hope. Had a few news crews show up and take pictures and do interviews. Springfield’s finest even came by with Greene county sheriffs office and said we were doing a great job just don’t impede traffic. I say we succeeded and will again in a few hours. Hopefully no rain.”

Former CIA Spook: John Brennan A “Bully Of The Highest Order”

brennan

CIA Director and Obama loyalist John Brennan is reportedly a closet Muslim who according to a former FBI counterterrorism agent  John Guandolo, converted to Islam while serving in an official capacity on the behalf of the U.S. in Saudi Arabia. In 2011, he called for the FBI to eliminate its “offensive” curriculum/training materials which made reference to “jihad” and “radical Islam” and in the wake of the Benghazi attack, was involved in crafting the phony talking points that then-Secretary of State Susan Rice gave regarding  attack against. It was the vote on Brennan’s nomination to CIA Director  that Rand Paul filibustered back in March (over the Regime’s drone policies,)

Now, in the wake of CNN’s bombshell report revealing that the CIA is using polygraph tests and hiding witnesses to keep Benghazi secrets from leaking out, comes this report via the Blaze:

Michael Scheuer, who headed the CIA’s Osama bin Laden unit in the 1990s, said Saturday on Fox News that the new allegations are about “intimidation” and “persecution.”

“The people who risked their lives on the ground in Libya…are now being intimidated that their careers will be ruined or they will be fired if they happen to say what was going on on the ground at the time,” Scheuer said. “I’ve known John Brennan and he’s the director there and he’s a bully of the first order. He will never say anything negative or question anyone above him, but for the people below him he is a bully of epic dimensions.”

Scheuer accused Brennan of having been “involved in efforts to prevent the destruction of Al-Qaeda” and “denying us the intelligence from renditions and interrogations.” He also charged Brennan is “serving a master who has no concern for American security.”

3 New Black Panthers Hold Vigil Outside Of Tampa Courthouse – Gets Sympathetic Media Coverage (Video)

A “justice for Trayvon” rally in Tampa fell flat on Monday, as only 3 New Black Panther protesters showed up to protest the Zimmerman verdict.

WFLA reported:

Only three demonstrators showed up at a Justice for Trayvon Martin rally organized by the New Black Panther party near a Tampa courthouse Monday.

The representatives with the New Black Panthers told us they scheduled a gathering in front of the George Edgecomb Courthouse on Twiggs Street to bring attention to the broken judicial system and to demand justice for Trayvon Martin.

As the morning wore on, a few people going in and out of the courtroom stopped to listen for a moment or two, and were interviewed by ABC Action News. Note the sympathetic treatment the reporter gave the odious New Black Panthers, whose foot soldiers have found ways to inject antisemitism into the Zimmerman case,  vowed “the black man will exact justice on Zimmerman” and   declared that the Zimmerman verdict means “war”. Last year they put put a $10,000 bounty on Zimmerman’s head.

“For Ali Mohammed, there is no riding the fence since the verdict came down…..with the Zimmerman not guilty verdict weighing on his heart and boiling in his soul, Ali is calling for change in how ‘Lady Justice’ sees the law,” the reporter intoned.

Good grief!

Thank God for the last woman interviewed who injected some sanity and common decency into the farce, reviving my faith in humanity just a little bit.

Imagine if a tea party rally drew only 3 protesters. Do you think anyone in the media would have been there to cover it?

I’ve been to rallies that have drawn thousands that were ignored by the local media. We live in an upside down world.
