More MSNBC Pwnge: This Time It’s Contessa Brewer’s Turn To Be Humiliated

The hacks at MSNBC are spinning wildly for their boyfriend in the White House, a little too wildly as Tingles found out, yesterday, and Contessa  Brewer found out when she tried to bully the genteel, intellectually superior Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL).

This is the rhetorical equivalence to yanking the mic out of her hand and hitting her over the head with it, only he couldn’t have been more polite.

“Do You Have A Degree In Economics?”

“Yes Ma’am, I do. Highest honors”


According to his Congressional page: “Mo graduated from Duke University in three years with a double major in political science and economics, with highest honors in economics. In 1978, he graduated from the University of Alabama Law School.”

Hump Day Link-Around

Lisa Benson cartoon via Townhall

 Cut, Cap and Balance passed in the House, last night, so the ball should be in the Dems’ court, but a “gang” in the Senate (which includes Republicans) is currently negotiating a grand “compromise” which cuts some spending, someday, maybe, and includes massive tax hikes. Some compromise.

@#$% – you very much, Senate Republicans.


Chris Christie comments on the budget talks:

“I think it’s incumbent upon the President to put a plan out there”…

“The executive has an obligation to lead.”

Boston Herald: Prez’s vacation makes little $ense right now:

…a new Marist Poll says that for the first time ever a majority of American adults — 55 percent — will not be booking a summer vacation this year. They’re too worried about jobs and money. The “Staycation” of 2009 has morphed into the “Naycation” of 2011.

But Obama, who’s got us panicked over this debt-ceiling stalemate, will soon be off — again — to Blue Heron Farm, Martha’s Vineyard. Check out the pictures of this “farm” online. You practically drool. It looks like the centerfold of “Town & Country,” the magazine for aspiring zillionaires.

But unless Obama fixes this fiscal disaster — now — he can’t go. He should have a staycay like the rest of us.

Instead, he’ll be looking at 28 acres on the water from a pristine white Victorian farm house handsomely appointed with Restoration Hardware-style chairs and tables on an elegant patio. There’s also a reconstructed Pennsylvania hay barn dating back to the 1800s and a boat house for the Boston Whalers and catamarans to cruise Tisbury Great Pond. Plus a golf green and pool and flower gardens, vegetable gardens and apple orchard — not a droopy leaf in site. And don’t forget the basketball court.

Let’s call it a Barack-acation.


The latest in gunwalker news…

Bizzy Blog: Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself:

So I’ll let the person who sent the following to the NewsBusters email box do the talking (bolds are mine):

With Fast and Furious the Obama Administration is effectively a state sponsor of terrorism. This is a scandal of epic proportions. It includes coverups to the highest levels of government and involves the death of federal employees. In short this is Watergate on a steroids/crack cocktail. We continue to be told the media is out for controversy. What could be more controversial?

Meanwhile, a media mogul has some of his employees in one country performing some potentially illegal acts. But THIS guy owns Fox News.

So which is getting more stories and minutes devoted to it in American news, the President or Attorney General giving guns to drug cartels to kill Americans so as to attack a Constitutional Amendment, or some phone hacking and bribes by a media branch in England?

Few things are a better sign of undeniable bias.

Michelle Malkin: Obamacare Fables: The Greatest Hits Video:

Last week, I published The Ever-Expanding Catalogue of Obamacare Fables.

This week, MRCTV and BreitbartTV bring you an excellent and handy video of Obama’s favorite health care takeover tall tales in his own words.

All it needs is an “Unhappily Ever After” end page.

Watch video at link.

Hard and fast rule — whenever Obama says, “true story”, understand that he is about to lie to your face. Corollary to that rule: Whenever Obama opens his mouth, understand that he is about to lie to your face.


Another hard and fast rule: “Never trust a source as cited by Rachel Maddow.”

Atlas Shrugs: Holy War in Texas Escalates: Texas clerk Faces Grand Jury for Defending the Pledge, Possible Jail Time and Removal from Office

Right after the Fourth of July, I broke the story of Natalie Nichols, a newly elected county clerk in Texas, who questioned a rogue court that actually voted to remove the Pledge of Allegiance and an opening prayer from the court’s official records. She refused to do it, and made it her official stance. She now faces charges.

After my story ran on July 6 over at WND, Holy War in Texas, Natalie Nichols found herself facing Grand Jury charges and possible prison time.

Natalie’s husband told me, “Is this what we are to now expect when we dare take a stand? A public official, no doubt? Retribution for some trumpted-up mess? Prayers, please! Right now, she is alone in this here.”

Time for Texans to rally around this brave woman.

O’Keefe Medicaid Sting: Part II

Good grief. What does a person have to do to be ineligible for government assistance in this country?

Project Veritas asks that question in its latest investigation.

In the latest video, filmed in several Medicaid offices in South Carolina, an undercover reporter, dressed in a kilt and driving an expensive sports car, poses as an IRA terrorist.  He explains that his comrades have gunshot wounds and is in need of  twenty-five Medicaid applications.

The Medicaid case worker tells the reporter, who is identified as “Sean Murphy” that “his business is his business.  She does not probe into the nature of his work.  One of the Medicaid workers helps Murphy fill out a form and lists an injury as “shot offshore.”

A wealthy Irish drug and gun smuggling terrorist needs Medicaid for 25 foreign compatriots with gun-shot wounds. (Never-mind the IRA hasn’t been active for years)…What will the Medicaid office do????

“In this time of economic uncertainty, the American people deserve to know how their tax dollars are being wasted.” said James O’Keefe.   “This is hardly an isolated incident.  Government workers willing to aid people with criminal backgrounds and great wealth should be an outrage to every American.  After tapes were revealed yesterday of a similar investigation in Ohio, one Medicaid worker has already been put on paid administrative leave.  This should be a wake-up call for close scrutiny of the Medicaid system.”

Official Media Matters response: HOAX!!11!!! He didn’t wear the hat into the office!!!


James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles are currently being sued by the ACORN employee seen in the San Diego ACORN sting video.

A complaint filed July 7, 2010 indicates ACORN employee Juan Carlos Vera (seen here in the ACORN San Diego investigation) is suing James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles in federal court for at least $75,000.  Vera alleges Giles and O’Keefe violated the Invasion of Privacy Act when they videotaped him giving advice regarding underage prostitution to the fake pimp and prostitute in 2009.

The Ohio Medicaid sting already seeing dividends:

AoSHQ: Ohio Orders Retraining of Medicaid Officials

Ace says retraining’s all well and good, but not enough:

No matter what the job is — even in non-bureaucratic positions — an employee’s real directive is to avoid complaints by clients and hassles from superiors and above all else not get fired.

If a system is in place — and I don’t give a fig what’s in the employee manuals; I mean the real governing system in place — has all the incentives on one side of things (here, to just give out money willy-nilly; in the Army, to just promote Muslim officers even if they were giving “psychiatric research presentations” celebrating Islamic jihad — then that is how the bureaucrats will act.

If bureaucrats began to get fired based on what we saw here in Ohio, there would at least be some incentive on the other side of things to deny money to plainly-ineligible fraudsters. As things stand, there is not.

These employees need to be very publicly fired.
