Video: Glenn Beck Show Flames Al Gore For Civil Rights/Global Warming Comparison

Glenn Beck’s sidekick, Pat Gray,  alternated between a high pitched Sam Kinison screech, and a slow, condescending Al Gore drawl, to lambast Goracle for comparing Climate Change skeptics to racists.

It’s relentless, unforgiving, and hilarious — Al Gore so deserves this.

Will Al Gore and his warmist friends ever go away? The wheels have come off the global warming scam. The jig is up.

They’re just embarrassing themselves, now.


Breitbart TV: Major Garrett Lays into Al Gore and Global Warming Hysterics

In a candid and revealing interview with Dennis Miller, National Journal’s Major Garrett recalls the imperious, arrogant and condescending bearing of Al Gore as a Senator. Garrett believes that his recent statements comparing global warming skeptics to racists are a reflection of that same attitude.


Weasel Zippers: House Republicans Seek To Cut All U.S. Funding For U.N. Climate Change Agencies…-

WASHINGTON —House Republicans are applying a search and destroy tactic to international funding for global warming this budget season. It goes like this: Ax any line items with the words “climate change.”

Their primary targets are a pair of crucial United Nations initiatives designed to slow warming worldwide and educate policymakers about the evolving science of climate change.

We’ll see how far this goes. They also attempted to defund the Obama’s Czars in their $38 billion budget cuts bill, last April, but Obama prevented it in a signing statement, (which he had previously promised he’d never do.)

 Combining two DOJ scandals, Iowahawk rawks the internet with: New Scandal at DoJ as Illegal Guitars End Up In Hands of Mexican Drug Lords:

WASHINGTON – Today’s uncovering of secret multi-agency program for shipping illegal Gibson guitars to Mexican drug cartels left red-faced officials of the U.S. Department of Justice scrambling for an explanation amid angry calls for a Congressional investigation.

“I have ordered all agency personnel to fully cooperate in any Congressional inquiries, including all reasonable document request, as soon as we can redact them with Sharpie pens and lighter fluid,” said U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

The secret program came to light early this morning in the border town of Nogales, Arizona, after what was described as a wild battle of the bands between members of the Sinaloa cartel and Los Zetas, two of Mexico’s most notorious violent drug gangs.

“Usually these guys are armed with Mexican Strats and Squires, Epiphones, small caliber stuff like that,” said Pedro Ochoa, 36, an eye witness to the sonic melee. “This time they were packing the heavy firepower.”

The steady barrage of power chords and piercing solo attacks attracted the attention of nearby U.S. Border Patrol agents, who arrived at the scene just as Los Zetas broke into Led Zeppelin’s ‘Immigrant Song.’ By the time the dust had cleared, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Oscar Jimenez was found in a catatonic state of headbanging. He was later flown to University of Arizona Hospitals, where his condition is listed as seriously rawked.

The spandex-clad suspects were able to flee back into Mexico, but not before abandoning their arsenal of axes – the quality of which shocked Border Patrol agents.

“I’ve been working the border for over 25 years and have never seen a weapons cachet like this,” said Patrol Supervisor Mike Foreman. “A ’53 Goldtop, a ’59 Black Beauty, Flying V’s, a whole armory of SGs. Enough for an entire guitarmy. It’s a wonder there weren’t any total shreddings.”

If some of those guitars look like they’re floating in the air, blame my hubby, he did it.

Jack Cashill, The American Thinker: Early Obama Letter Confirms Inability to Write:

Obama was prompted to write by an earlier letter from a Mr. Jim Chen that criticized Harvard Law Review’s affirmative action policies.  Specifically, Chen had argued that affirmative action stigmatized its presumed beneficiaries.

The response is classic Obama: patronizing, dishonest, syntactically muddled, and grammatically challenged.  In the very first sentence Obama leads with his signature failing, one on full display in his earlier published work: his inability to make subject and predicate agree.

“Since the merits of the Law Review’s selection policy has been the subject of commentary for the last three issues,” wrote Obama, “I’d like to take the time to clarify exactly how our selection process works.”

If Obama were as smart as a fifth-grader, he would know, of course, that “merits … have.”  Were there such a thing as a literary Darwin Award, Obama could have won it on this on one sentence alone.  He had vindicated Chen in his first ten words.

Forbes: Why Obama Can’t Support A Real Jobs Program:

President Obama’s much-anticipated jobs speech will undoubtedly cover more of the same things that already haven’t worked. He will propose an infrastructure bank, extension of unemployment and food stamps, promotion of green jobs, more government-corporate partnerships, and a one-year extension of the payroll tax reduction. He’ll advocate a second stimulus. He may be flanked by his jobs commission, headed by the CEO of General Electric, which earlier issued a lame interim jobs report.

His speech will not be about jobs. Instead, it will be a campaign speech in disguise.

Obama cannot propose a real jobs program. His constituents would rebel. A real jobs program attacks too many of the core beliefs of his party, such as minimum wages and higher taxes on the better off.

So what is the endgame here? Is Obama  happy to risk  total collapse of the financial system in order to get re-elected? Or is the collapse part of the plan to begin with?

Btw, Obama’s big job speech has been delayed until next week. They’re probably trying to find a new and exciting way to package the above mentioned proven failures.

Yep, it was really him…Gateway Pundit: Obama’s Illegal Alien Uncle Held By ICE After Drunk Driving Arrest:


President Barack Obama’s long-lost uncle was arrested for drunk driving in Framingham in August, and is now being held by Immigration and Customs Enforcement as an illegal immigrant, the Australian Times is reporting.

According to the paper, Onyango Obama, 67, was arrested outside the Chicken Bone Saloon in Framingham at around 7 p.m. on Aug. 24. Police say he nearly crashed his Mitsubishi 4×4 into a police cruiser before failng a breathalyzer test.

First we had Teddy (the Swimmer) Kennedy, then we had Billy Carter, then Roger Clinton, then  uh, Aunt Zeituni and Onuango Obama. Anyone notice the common denominator?

Did you know about this? CNS News: ExxonMobil Sues Gov’t for Canceling Deepwater Well Worth ‘Billions of Barrels of Oil’

ExxonMobil, the world’s largest energy company, filed a lawsuit against the federal government for canceling an oil-drilling lease in the Gulf of Mexico that held “billions of barrels of oil,” according to the company.

In the suit, filed Aug. 12 in federal court in Louisiana against Interior Department Secretary Ken Salazar and related parties, Exxon alleges that the Interior Department made an “arbitrary, capricious” decision in canceling the deepwater leases, arguing that the government’s action “deprives ExxonMobil of property without due process of law.” ExxonMobil lawsuit filing..pdf

Not enough outrage has been expressed about WI Justice Ann Walsh Bradley’s abusive claim of abuse. Prof. Jacobson hopes to rectify that.

As discussed on Thursday, the investigative file shows that the accusation was false and misleading.  Read my post, Turns out WI Justice Ann Walsh Bradley was the one with the anger management problem, for the details.

Prosser never choked Bradley, much less used a chokehold, even though Bradley told the public otherwise and sat by as Prosser was widely vilified for having choked Bradley.

There is another aspect of this case, however, which is just as troubling as the false accusation of a chokehold.  Bradley has cynically use of the very real problem of workplace safety as both a sword with which to attack Prosser and a shield to deflect from her own aggressive conduct which precipitated the incident.

Whatever was the past history of acrimony on the Court, there was only one person on the Wisconsin Supreme Court who initiated a physical confrontation with another Justice, and that person was Bradley.

DaTechGuy’s blog: He’s right, He’s right they can’t both be right on Social Security:

There is a lot of fuss about Perry’s remarks about Social Security being a Ponzi scheme

in Des Moines, when a reporter asked about the suggestion that his campaign was backing off some positions in the staunch states-rights book, Perry said, “I haven’t backed off anything in my book. So read the book again and get it right.”

And the left reacts with either ‘s laughs, snark, insults or fear

So who’s right, Perry and the Right or the left? If you look at the question with a smart eye it’s clear who is right.

Rick Santorum!

Why, because Santorum has made the argument that many of our fiscal issues have their origin in social changes that have been harmful to our nation.

The reason Social Security is in big trouble is we don’t have enough workers to support the retirees. Well, a third of all the young people in America are not in America today because of abortion, because one in three pregnancies end in abortion.

And it’s not just the culture of Abortion, it’s the culture of birth control and of Children as a burden vs a blessing.

Has Obama’s MSM Praetorian Guard Helped or Hurt Him?

Fred Barnes, writing for the Weekly Standard seems to think the MSM’s extreme pro-Obama bias has ended up hurting our beloved “Naked Emperor” in Obama’s Enablers:

As a rule, the press is the scourge of presidents. They’re expected to endure unending scrutiny, mistrust, and badgering—plus hostility if they’re Republicans—by a hectoring herd of reporters and commentators in the mainstream media. But there’s an exception to the rule: President Obama.

It’s counterintuitive, but Obama has been hurt by the media’s leniency. Both his presidency and reelection prospects have suffered. He’s grown lazy and complacent. The media have encouraged him to believe his speeches are irresistible political catnip, though they aren’t. His overreliance on words hasn’t helped.

The kind of media pressure that can cause a president to sharpen his game, act with urgency, or take bolder steps—that has never been applied to Obama. If it had, I suspect he’d be a more effective, disciplined, energetic, and popular president today. Ronald Reagan is a good role model in this regard. When the media attacked him over gaffes in the 1980 campaign, “Reagan responded like all competitive men by working to improve himself,” says Reagan historian Craig Shirley. “Experience taught him to be better and try harder.” He took this lesson into the White House.

I don’t want to exaggerate the media’s baneful influence on Obama. It’s hardly the main reason for his decline. It’s a secondary reason, and it continues to have an impact.

Well, I would say that as a rule, since around 1980, the MSM’s “unending scrutiny, mistrust, and badgering” has almost entirely been directed at Republican Presidents. Reagan, Bush senior and Bush Jr  were constantly pounded by the media. I distinctly remember feeling awful for Bush Sr. after he got sick at the Japanese State Dinner. And I was shocked at how unfair the ensuing uproar was:

According to USA Today, the incident was one of the top “25 memorable public meltdowns that had us talking and laughing or cringing over the past quarter-century.”[4]

A satiric play featuring the incident,[5] and an art exhibit with an image of it was reviewed in 2000.[6]

Yes, it was treated like it was “public meltdown”, (like there was some great personal failing involved) not that he had just very unfortunately fell ill in public. Nausea is obviously not something you can control, yet they mercilessly made fun of him anyway. And this happened back when there was not as much conservative media to push back their unfair narratives.

The MSM mostly  looked the other way during Clinton years whether it was any of the numerous “Gates” that plagued his administration, or something minor like Clinton being seen merrily yukking it up at Ron Brown’s funeral, then quickly biting his lip and wiping a tear away when he spotted the TV cameras.

They circled the wagons for their man — especially during Lewinsky-gate.  Clinton was almost as dishonest as Obama  –  I say almost because no one will ever be able to hold a candle to Obama when it comes to lying to the American people.

(You know, there’s a reason why the left screeched that George Bush was a liar for eight long years. They know that their own guys are pathological liars, and they’re actually okay with that when it’s their own guys. When Republicans hold power, they  project their own sides’ pathologies onto them, thinking conservatives are the same way.  We see this over and over and over and over again. It actually explains all those charges of “reich-wing” fascism, through the years, too. We see what happens when they’re in charge, and it ain’t pretty.)

The thing about the media bias for Obama is that it has never before been this blatant,  this uniform, or this extreme. It’s not just that the MSM doesn’t pressure their hero — they actively bury stories that are damaging to him, while viciously going after his enemies. And they unquestioningly parrot his talking points. That’s pretty darn helpful, there’s no getting around it. Most people still blame Bush for Obama’s crappy economy. That’s thanks to Obama’s praetorian guard.

Barnes continues:

In Washington, the plight of the jobless has been underplayed, and not only by the media. The White House has promised for two years to “pivot” to an agenda stressing job creation, but still hasn’t made the turn. On his three-day bus tour in the Midwest, Obama seemed oblivious to the depth of the unemployment trauma.

“Private sector job growth is good,” he said in Alpha, Illinois. In reality, it’s bad and getting worse. “The economy is now growing again,” he said. Barely. Obama said trade deals and patent reform would promote hiring, if only Congress would approve them. But it’s the president who has delayed the trade treaties, and both houses of Congress have passed patent reform measures.

The media routinely give Obama a pass on such stuff. On the tour, Obama insisted, as he has many times before, that he saved the nation from a “Great Depression.” So far as I know, the press has never challenged this dubious claim. But it is belied by the fact the recession came to an official end in June 2009, months before Obama’s policies could have played more than a minimal role.

Ask yourself this: If unemployment were treated by the media today as the top national issue, as it was in 1982 and 1983 when Reagan was president, would Obama be dawdling? Not likely. The jobless rate then was only slightly higher than it is now. But in those days, the press focused relentlessly on the jobless.

Not likely?

The premise here, unless I’m mistaken, is that the “dawdling” president would do more to make things better if only he were challenged more by his friends in the media. But this  is Marxist ideologue, Obama we’re talking about, and he isn’t dawdling – he has been quite actively destroying the economy since day one of his tenure. Let’s look at the evidence: Besides the non-stop spend-a-thon, his administration has been pummeling  businesses with burdensome regulations, moratoriumsabsurd NLRB demands, and looming tax increases. His desire to pick  winners and losers is leading to the destruction of entire industries.

These aren’t the actions of someone who’s trying to “create jobs” in a free, capitalistic economy.

If you look at what Obama is doing as Cloward Piven on steroids, only then  it begins to make sense. Can anyone really be this incompetent?

Barack Obama has spent the last 1,000+ days defying reason and choosing policy directions that seem nonsensical to the rational mind: a failed stimulus package; ObamaCare; growing the deficit to astronomical proportions; and cynically portraying wealth as immoral. Now, when cuts are the only fix to a budgetary balloon about to burst, a seemingly illogical President digs in and demands additional phantom dollars to spend on a system that is collapsing under the weight of unmanageable debt.

It’s hard to figure out the method to the President’s obvious madness, because based on Obama’s approval rating, if the election were held today even Pee Wee Herman could replace Obama behind the Resolute Desk.  Maybe the “method” isn’t “mad” in the least!

Could it be that Barack Obama is purposely pressuring the system in a premeditated effort to foster a major crisis?   One that would demand extraordinary measures to control by a President who could then mete out basic sustenance to Americans who would agree to anything to regain some sense of normalcy.  And in the process successfully usher in the “socially just” system Barack Obama has dreamed of all his life.

While radical Alinsky/Cloward-Piven disciple Obama appears to be clueless and detached, it may be a ploy; he may actually be focused and engaged as he purposely pursues an Alinsky-inspired course of action to force the system to “live up” to its own rules.  Obama’s ultimate goal of once-and-for-all discrediting the capitalist system and replacing America’s foundational economic and social tenets with a broad-based socialist one headed by progressive Marxists like himself, is actually within reach.

As Obama pushes and prods the US economy and instigates social unrest, it could be that he believes a Cloward-Piven-style utopia resides just beyond the horizon — a progressive panacea where an election-free, classless society, thankful for a simple crust of bread, looks to Barack Obama to keep the peace by remaining in power indefinitely.

Obama is leading the organized left’s charge  to fundamentally transform America.

This is what Obama’s enablers are enabling.
