Video: Jacob Turk on Rep. Cleaver’s $1.35 Mil Bank Default – “Where Did Our Money Go?”

At today’s tea party rally on the Plaza in Kansas City, I had a chance to ask conservative Republican, Jacob Turk, who’s running for Congressman Emanuel Cleaver’s seat in District 5, MO about Cleaver’s bank default with the Bank of America.

As I reported, here and here, the Bank of America’s lawsuit against the Democratic congressman seeks $1.5 million in principal, interest and late fees for his loan for a car wash he bought in 2002.

Jacob Turk said Cleaver, who is the Leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, and a member of the Progressive Caucus,  turned the SBA loan into the “Cleaver Grant Program”. Turk is calling for an investigation because Cleaver has neglected to list the loan on his financial disclosure form, and further asked, where did our money go – $1.35 million dollars on a car wash that is only worth $250,000?


Kansas City Tea Party Pix and Video, April 14, 2012

A decent crowd turned out for a Tax Day Tea Party sponsored by the In God We Trust PAC  this morning on the Country Club Plaza, in Kansas City, MO.

Conservative state and federal candidates were on hand, including Republican Congressman from Iowa, Steve King, Republican candidate for US Senate in MO, Todd Akin, Republican candidate for MO Sec. of State, Shane Schoeller, and Republican candidate for US House, Dist.5, Jacob Turk to give speeches  and answer questions.

IA Congressman Steve King is in Kansas City this weekend for our two tea parties.

Jacob Turk gave a great speech, as he always does.

Todd Akin is running for the US Senate in Missouri.

Akin posed with supporters.

Republican candidate for MO Sec. of State, Shane Schoeller also gave a great speech.

Jacob Turk, Republican Candidate for US Congress in MO Dist-5 spoke before the tea party crowd on the Plaza, with the JC Nichols Fountain as a backdrop.

More videos soon to come…


Shane Schoeller’s speech in two parts. He had a little trouble with the PA system, but plowed through his speech, undaunted. This hardcore conservative would make a great Sec. of State.

Part One:

Part Two:

She knows a thing or two about difficulty.

John Nolte, Big Journalism: Ann Romney Just Became the Media’s Primary Target:

All that matters to Obama’s corrupt Media Palace Guards is that Ann Romney is a huge plus to the Romney 2012 campaign and therefore a threat to Obama’s re-election and therefore she must be destroyed.

The media was already scared of Ann Romney, but after what’s occurred over the last 48 hours, she will now be their primary target for the worst kind of personal destruction. How much do you want to bet Buzz Feed’s Ben Smith has already ordered his minions to locate her tanning bed? What does Politico’s Jonathan Martin have planned for Ms. Romney —  no stranger to doing Obama’s oppo-research on private citizens is he.

Wednesday night, Obama advisor and frequent White House guest, Hilary Rosen, picked up where Obama left off and lit into Ann Romney on CNN;  brazenly equating the raising of five children as a disqualifier when it comes to speaking on economic issues or even wome’sn issues.

As a result, Ann Romney stepped into the White House’s line of fire by handling the situation … with absolute perfection.

And as she did, let me assure you, Obama’s Media Palace Guards completely freaked out.

Welcome to what will surely become  “Palin II: The Nuclear Option.”

DNC Chair Pressed And Dodges On Hypocrisy Of Going On Bill Maher Show:

Obama Attacks Press, But When Will Reporters Start Printing the Truth about the President?

Is the warm relationship between President Obama and the press growing chilly over ObamaCare? Obama told reporters how to do their job. Has the Obama Administration declared war on an otherwise friendly press corps, and will the press fight back? Find out on this Trifecta.

Bill Whittle is so right: “If there was a press corps between now and November – if even 1/100th of 1% of the press corps did their job- Barack Obama would never be reelected.

Case in point, via Townhall tipsheet:

For weeks President Obama has traveled the country delivering speech after speech asserting that if implemented, the so-called “Buffett Rule” would “stabilize” our national debt over the next ten years. In reality, however, it would do almost nothing to solve our lingering budget woes or pay off our national debt. Nevertheless, his unrelenting tax-the-rich mantra seems to be resonating with voters. According the latest Gallup poll, 6 in 10 Americans support the Buffett rule – named for billionaire investor Warren Buffett – a policy that would impose a 30 percent minimum tax rate on households that earn more than $1 million a year.

Stephen Hayes was hammering not only the Buffet Rule, earlier this week, but the media for not  challenging Obama on his phony numbers.

Issa on Obama’s GSA Scandal: Obama Administration Knew About GSA’s Wasteful Spending – Part Of A Pattern:

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, goes on Fox News to discuss the upcoming committee hearing examining the GSA’s wasteful spending for their 2010 Western Regions Conference.

When Kelly brought up the Obama administrations’ excuses (blame Bush) – Issa did not mince words: “This administration has lied before. I repeat – has lied before. They certainly lied for Fast and Furious. So, until we see facts, we don’t know it to be true.”

The Right Scoop: Allen West: I’m gonna expose these communist congress members for who they are:

West says the media isn’t challenging him on the substance of his accusation, they just don’t like the fact that he said it. But he vows to continue exposing these people and speaking the truth:

The thing is that, incredibly enough, that the media in their search to try to condemn me or attack me or bring up some time of sensational story, didn’t do their due diligence, didn’t do their research. As you said they’re just repeaters, they’re not reporters. So now they have egg on their face because they’re not arguing the point that I brought up. They’re arguing the fact that they just don’t like that I brought it up. Well, you know, tough on them. I’m going to continue to talk about the truth and I’m gonna expose them for who they are because I’m sick and tired of every time you turn around on the House floor, they want to say it’s the Tea Party radical wing of the Republican Party when the Tea Party is just a constitutional conservative grass roots movement that believes in our economic security, our energy security, our national security. And what American would not want to believe in that?

Thanks to Brian B. for many of these.
