Economy Shrinks … Obama & Pals Blame Republicans

January 31, 2013


Another ‘who woulda thunk it’ moment: The U.S. economy posted a stunning drop of 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter, defying expectations for slow growth and possibly providing incentive for more Federal Reserve stimulus. The economy shrank from October through …

And here the Republicans wanted to avoid the blame, by being nice.

Get outta here! You mean with businesses fretting over the unknown cost of ObamaCare, with taxes being raised for almost every American, and government spending continuing to spiral out of control that our economy is contracting?



‘This Hagel Hearing Is A Disaster’

January 31, 2013

Liberals take to Twitter to slam Hagel

Distraught by his poor performance in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee, liberals viciously turned on secretary of defense nominee Chuck Hagel on social media.

I Know You Are Tired Of the Continous Liberal Biased Media

January 31, 2013

But one more posting to speed you on your way.

Last month, when the Republican Governor of South Carolina named GOP U.S. Representative Tim Scott to the U.S. Senate, the “first African American U.S. Senator from the South since Blanche Bruce of Mississippi in 1881” according to The State newspaper, thus becoming the only black — Democrat or Republican — in the Senate, ABC’s World News didn’t mention it.

Fast-forward to Wednesday night, and ABC anchor Diane Sawyer suddenly found it newsworthy that the Democratic Governor of Massachusetts appointed an African-American to replace new Secretary of State John Kerry, trumpeting: “Look closely at this picture. That is William ‘Mo’ Cowan of Massachusetts. He will be heading to Washington, DC soon and straight into the history books.”

And what exactly was wrong with this picture? Easy to see what is going on, unless you just came out of a cave somewhere, the lamestream media is just a stenographer for the Obama press office.

Why do you think we call them lamestream. They earn every penny, don’t you think???

I guess Barney the Frank didn’t make the cut, huh.

Did you know the KKK was formed after the civil war by Democrats? Lincoln was a Republican.

Did you know that without the Republican caucus support in the Senate, there would have been no 1964 Civil Rights Act?

Hagel, McCain Clash Over Iraq Surge at Hearing Read Latest Breaking News from Urgent: Should Obamacare Be Repealed? Vote Here Now!

January 31, 2013

It’s all for show, no substance.

Chuck Hagel clashed with Sen. John McCain Thursday over the 2007 U.S. troop surge in Iraq, with the nominee for defense secretary refusing to say whether the escalation succeeded. Their confrontation of raised voices at Hagel’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee exposed a long-festering rift over the Iraq war.

Dog and pony show for the uninformed. Don’t get any idea it means anything more.

The ways of the RINO’s. If it sounds like you are watching Gladiators fight, yep, that’s what really is going on all thunder and lightning. For show… Hagel and McCain were best buds not to long ago.

Sen. Ted Cruz — Why Does Gun Free Chicago Have So Many Murders

January 31, 2013

Why does Baltimore have such high murder rates? Don’t you basically ban all guns right now?

At yesterday’s Senate hearing on gun control, Ted Cruz once again stood out as an articulate voice for commonsense. After declaring the Senate to be a “fact-free zone,” he went on to destroy the myth that there is a consequential difference between an “assault weapon” and a regular semi-automatic rifle. You can watch him in action for the first 3.5 minutes of the clip:

Beginning at the 3:45 mark, Cruz finally confronts gun-grabbers with a question they can never answer. He asked Baltimore Police Chief Jim Johnson why states like Texas have a low homicide rate, even in urban areas, while gun-grabbing cities like DC, Chicago and Illinois are like warzones. Of course, he dodged the question and retorted with non-sequiturs and red herrings:

America’s Suicidal Cities: Detroit Refuses To Take its Medicine

January 31, 2013

Who wants to aspire to living in this crap pile, the home of American exceptional-ism during the age of the American automobile. Now the home of the shining light of liberalism.

Some major American cities are dying, and the worst part is that these grievously ill patients often are refusing to take even the mildest medicine that would make things better.

Take Detroit, a city that has become a synonym for urban failure. The murder rate of one per 1,719 people last year was more than eleven times the rate in New York City. One contributing factor may be that two-thirds of Detroit’s streetlights are broken.


Detroit disrepair

Think about the murder rate of 1 in 1,791 people, killed each year.

Crazy Gun Nut Shoots Man Just For Breaking Into Her House

January 31, 2013

Everybody knows that guns don’t protect people. More guns = more gun crimes. Like this one!

KPRC in Houston:

MAGNOLIA, Texas – A home invasion suspect was arrested at a hospital after a mother shot him during the crime at a Montgomery County home, deputies said Wednesday.

Erin, who asked to be identified only by her first name, told Local 2 she was putting her 6-year-old son to bed when she heard a loud noise coming from her bedroom on Mink Lake Drive Friday night…

Erin said she turned around and saw three masked men, pointing a gun right at her…

“Somehow the way it happened, as they were going down the hallway, I told them sometimes I keep money under the mattress, which is not true. But I needed to get to where my gun was,” she said.

The men followed her to her bedroom.

“I was pretending to move the mattress. It’s really heavy, so I was trying to move their attention to the mattress because they wouldn’t take their eyes off of me. I needed a split second for them to take their eyes off of me. I said, ‘It might be under here.’ They started talking to each other in Spanish and then a roll of duct tape came out,” said Erin…

“They all turned around and looked. I grabbed my gun, cocked it, I turned and shot him right in the stomach,” said Erin.

I think it’s pretty obvious what happened here. Some hardworking gentlemen from the Hispanic community were just trying to make a living selling duct tape door-to-door. They were going for the hard sell because times are tough, especially when you’re a minority. Then this demented hillbilly racist went nuts and just started shooting at them. And because it’s Texas — gun-wacko central! — they arrested the victim.

Are you happy now, Wayne LaPierre? Are you satisfied?

Escapees From Rights Challenged Lands Rever Our 2nd Amendment …

January 31, 2013

After decades of statist policies, ostensibly to make us “safer” (offensively misnamed “Patriot Act,” anyone?), the United States is far less the beacon of liberty than it once was. And yet, given the sad state of much of the rest of the world, the U.S. is still about the best place in the world for a freedom loving individual.

Gun-hating Americans are working hard to change that, with U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) going so far as trying to sell the public on her forcible citizen disarmament agenda by pointing out that tyrannical countries would respect us more if we, too, were rendered disarmed and helpless to resist government excesses.

Of course, many who have lived under such oppressive governments, but are now American citizens, enjoying the Constitutional guarantee of their fundamental human right of the individual to keep and bear arms, would beg to differ. Or no–scratch that–they know that they are now in no position to have to beg for anything.

Never forget it’s already been done by our federal government ask the Branch Dravidians, oh wait. weren’t they all killed by government tanks?

Extreme: Top Egyptian Mufti Calls For Crucifixion of Anti-Morsi Activists

January 31, 2013

The Islamist party of the Jihad Organization and Jama’a al-Islamiya called for the crucifixion of the Black Bloc anti-Morsi protesters in Egypt.

The Egypt Independent reported:

The Islamist party of the Jihad Organization and Jama’a al-Islamiya has said the ways of dealing with banditry specified in the Quran must be applied to Black Blocmembers, which means they must be killed.

“God orders us to kill, crucify or cut off the hands and feet of those who spread mischief on earth,”
said Jama’a al-Islamiya Mufti Abdel Akhar Hammad, citing a verse from the Quran. “The president must give that order.”

Mohamed Samra of the Jihad Organization said that the Black Bloc group is financed from abroad and must be killed, and that the National Salvation Front members must be arrested and charged with incitement to riot.

Last week, Cairo witnessed the first appearance groups describing themselves as the Black Bloc. Decked in black and wearing masks, they clashed with police forces at Qasr al-Aini Street on Thursday. They said they would fight with the police if it targeted protesters. Previously unknown, the Black Bloc’s goals remain unclear and its members generally avoid media contact.

President Obama is requesting $1.55 billion in aid to Egypt, about 80 percent of it in the form of military assistance.

If you recall the Muslim Brotherhood is where al Qaeda came. Egypt rejected them under Mubarak. So subsequently, they fled Egypt, went to Afghanistan and the Taliban there. Then attacked America on 9/11.

Dumb ideas goes flop, flounce, flop … When you have handouts, there is always government fraud in the mix. Just like with Obama’s green agenda baloney.
