The Story via NBC12.com:
HENRICO, VA (WWBT) – NBC12 has uncovered one of those stories that makes you think: “How in the world does that happen?!” A truck filled with President Obama’s podiums and audio equipment was stolen in Henrico just days before his visit to Chesterfield.
We confirmed an investigation with the U.S. Defense Department. There are still a lot of questions. The biggest one being did the thieves intentionally target the President’s truck or did they take advantage of a crime of opportunity and give a big “uh-oh” when they saw what was inside.
When you see President Obama speak, there is a pretty typical setup including the presidential seal on a podium, the see-thru Teleprompter and a portable sound system.
Thieves saw the truck carrying that equipment and couldn’t resist the target.
We’re told the truck was parked at the Virginia Center Commons Courtyard Marriott in advance on Wednesday’s presidential visit to Chesterfield.
Sources said inside that vehicle was about $200,000 worth of sound equipment, several podiums and presidential seals, behind which only the President himself can stand.
They told NBC12 around 12:30 Monday afternoon that truck was recovered in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Express near the airport and hotel staff confirm police activity. One guest we spoke with said he saw various law enforcement agencies examining a white box truck parked there.
According to him, the entire back parking lot was blocked off as Henrico Police along with “lots of guys in suits” investigated. He said the truck had no markings and no indication anything special was inside. That leads to another big question of whether or not any of that was actually stolen.
Late Monday evening we found a truck with US government tags still parked in the Marriott’s lot. We are waiting to find out if that is the original truck returned to the staff or a second vehicle.
If I were the Defense Department or the Secret Service, I would be watching E-Bay. Although, I highly doubt they took anything. Most likely, these thieves stole the truck, and got it somewhere, busted the lock and opened the back; and most likely when they saw what was in it —- in unison, screamed “OH CRAP!” and quickly brought the truck back!
Ed Morrissey brings a more serious thought to the table:
Update: On a more serious note, commenter NeoKong points out just how bad this security breach could have been:
The story is funny and everything until you realize what a breach of security this really was.
Once somebody gained unsupervised access to that bus and it’s contents they could have done anything they want. What if somebody planted a device or some sort of miniaturized explosive….? What if somebody planted electronic tracking devices or audio or video devices….? They would know where the POTUS would be going days in advance. Can anyone imagine the sort of conversations they could listen in on if somebody planted as bug or the details of security they could see if there was surveillance equipment…?
This is a BFD. Getting to that podium is almost as good as getting up close to the POTUS.
As for the explosive: Must….resist….saying….what…I’m….thinking….I….serve…the…Lord. 😯
But seriously, Ed’s commenter makes a good point; sounds like someone didn’t think things through much at all. Doug Powers, who is Michelle Malkin’s new flunky, writes a very funny piece on this story. 😀

First off, here is the video:

The story via NBC Washington:
A trial is set to begin Monday for a Montgomery County teacher, accused of punching and choking several of her first grade students.
Susan Burke, 36, was arrested in February, after nine of her first grade students at Greencastle Elementary School claimed they were abused. According to investigators, Burke allegedly choked, kicked, punched and scratched children in her class.
Montgomery County police learned of one incident on Jan. 7, when a Greencastle Elementary School student complained of being physically assaulted on several occasions.
Police interviewed all of the students in Burke’s class, and their investigation revealed eight more victims, all ages 6 or 7, police said. In addition to being choked, some students also reported being kicked, punched, scratched or squeezed on the arms, police said. Additional students reported witnessing the attacks, police said.
Burke was also charged in an alleged March 2010 assault of a student as a result of this investigation, police said. The incidents allegedly took place on school property and during school hours.
I hate to be the one to do this; but something about this story smells fishy. For one, nowhere in that report does it say that any of the children came home with bruises or anything of the sort on them. For all we know, these black kids decided that they did not like their teacher and decided to tell their parents that the teacher was hurting them. Believe me when I tell you; I know kids can be, and it is a common thing nowadays, for students to level false accusations against a teacher, if they do not like them.
In fact, locally here, in one of the public schools in one of the cites around here — a teacher, who had been with the school system for over 30 years, was accused of rape. The student was a Latino girl, who did not like the fact that she was getting too much homework from this teacher. So, she devised a plan. She was a minority, she was a girl and she was going do this teacher in. She accused him of rape. Well, he was suspended and there was an investigation, that lasted for over 2 years. Finally, the teacher was cleared of the charges and the girl put on trial for making such a big false accusation like that. During the trial, when asked about why she would do such a thing, her reply was, “Revenge.” She went on to say that because she was a Latino and a female, she figured they would just convict him and remove him from the school.
I am quite happy to report that the man accused, ended up not only suing the school; but also the girl’s family, the school district, and also La Raza, who was providing the attorney pro-Bono and boasted to the media that they would “bring down this oppressive white man.” The defendants tried to get the man to settle for a very small amount and basically, he laughed in their faces and rejected the settlement; he went on to win the case for millions. He promptly sold his house and left the State. He now lives very well, I am told.
The point I am making is this; why are these school officials just believing what these silly kids are saying? Why? Because they are black and she is white? I also got a kick out of how the woman was made out to be the evil oppressive white woman, who was picking on those poor little innocent black children! (yes, that is sarcasm…)
If the truth be known in this case; these kids were most likely a bunch of spoiled brats and most likely made this woman’s life a living hell and they most likely deserved the little smacks that they got from this woman. But, because we live in society that treats white on black “Crime” differently than actual black on white crime. This woman will most likely lose her career; because a group of minority students decided that they did not like Mrs. “Whitey Teacher” no more and with the help of Mommy and Daddy, figured out a way to get rid of her, for good.
It happens every day in America.

Before anyone flips their cork —- That is a rhetorical question.
Remember the Antisemitism that I wrote about at the #OccupyWallStreet protests?
This is about as bad, as the video I posted earlier, of Herman Cain being berated by a liberal white man.
Let me give you a reality check; it is the same mentality. You wander off the plantation; whether it is the black liberal plantation or the Jewish liberal camp plantation —- you do this, and they attack you, with both barrels.
It is the same mentality of Adolf Hitler. One of, “you either submit to our mindset, or we destroy you.” Only difference is, liberals cannot round up Blacks and Jews and put them in camps.
I’ll be darned, I no sooner push out a story as to why this race-hustler started killing people, and I discover that has assumed room temperature.
Shareef Allman, the man suspected of killing three people and wounding seven others during a workplace shooting, has been shot and killed this morning by Santa Clara County Sheriff’s deputies, according to multiple law enforcement agencies.
Allman was fatally shot at about 7:20 a.m. after being found at a house in Sunnyvale, according to multiple law enforcement agencies.
Lt. Rick Sung of the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office said a man was shot this morning by sheriff’s deputies who had been searching for Allman in the same neighborhood of Wednesday’s massive manhunt. The Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety will investigate the officer-involved shooting.
A law enforcement source said Allman knew somebody who lives on Lorne Way.
I hate to be the one to say it; but, it could not have happened to a better person. Well, maybe Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton or even Ed Brayton. ( 😯 ) ‘
Anyhow, the point I am making here is this; if you use your race to act as a shield for your poor job performance, and when that does not work anymore — you kill people? You die, especially if you pull a gun on a police officer. I do not care what race you are, this sort of stuff is just wrong. What burns my rear about this; is the liberal left, will use this tragic incident to try and advocate for stricter gun laws.
Another thing that really burns my bottom side; is that the liberal left and their cohorts in the media; will act like this crime never even happened. If anything at all; the man will be seen as a martyr to the race-hustling crowd. That’s right, he will be seen as a hero to these people; and not as the criminal murder, that he really was.
But then again, we are talking about the liberal left — none of this should be a big surprise to the rest of America.
The dude was a lousy unsafe driver and used his race as a shield; and when that little gig was up, he started killing people.
Here is hoping that this morally depraved piece of human excrement is put out of his own misery by the police.
Shareef Allman is a disgrace to the black race. Not to mention a two-bit phony.
The really ironic part, he did not just kill white people; he killed Latinos as well. That alone ought to have the Latino community out in California pissed off.
But to listen to the NAACP out there talk; this dude was a Christian man. To which I ask; by what standards?!?
Another thing too; this sick incident, where an angry black man shoots and kills those, who he has a problem with, will be used to try and enact stricter gun laws — which is absolutely stupid.
Video via ABC News:
Jobs died “peacefully” surrounded by family members, his family said in a statement.
Neither Jobs’ family nor Apple revealed where Jobs died or from what cause, though in recent years he had fought a form of pancreatic cancer and had a liver transplant.
“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,” read a statement by Apple’s board of directors. “Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve. His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.”
The homepage of Apple’s website switched to a full-page image of Jobs with the text, “Steve Jobs 1955-2011.”
Clicking on the image revealed additional text, credited in a separate memo to Apple employees to current Apple CEO Tim Cook.
“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being,” the text read. “Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.
I own an iPod touch, I even blog from it. I love it and I thank Mr. Jobs for his contribution. May he rest in peace.
…and seeing that I am supposed to be a sarcastic Conservative blogger; I shall say this….. Maybe NOW they’ll finally put adobe FLASH in these silly things! 😉
Update: A nice video from Wired:
Hell, to tie this in to politics; if he had not has Steve Jobs or apple, we’d never have this video here:
It was made on an apple computer!

This is why this video, which is in my “About this Blog” section is so important! Here is the REAL relevant part of this video:
You people on Mobile devices might not be able to see the snipped video; but the rest of us can.
This my friends, is why I blog. We simply cannot allow haters to scapegoat this economic recession on a particular group of people. It is anti-freedom to do so. For this and many other reasons, is why I write.
For the record, it was not just one person either; it was many. This video is via Fox Nation:
Notice how when he realizes he is on camera; he really gets into the spiel and really begins the berate the Jewish man standing there? This is what these haters are all about; attention for their cause, which is unabashed hatred. It is one of the downsides of being a free Republic. Even the idiots have a right to their say.
First, check out this video of an interview by Laura Ingraham, which comes via The Weekly Standard:
In between the yelling that I received from Justice Department yesterday, the spokeswoman–who would not put anything in writing, I was asking for her explanation so there would be clarity and no confusion later over what had been said, she wouldn’t put anything in writing–so we talked on the phone and she said things such as the question Holder answered was different than the one he asked. But he phrased it, he said very explicitly, ‘I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.’
Ingraham: So they were literally screaming at you?
Attkisson: Yes. Well the DOJ woman was just yelling at me. The guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me. [Laura: Who was the person? Who was the person at Justice screaming?] Eric Schultz. Oh, the person screaming was [DOJ spokeswoman] Tracy Schmaler, she was yelling not screaming. And the person who screamed at me was Eric Schultz at the White House.”
[The White House and Justice Department] will tell you that I’m the only reporter–as they told me–that is not reasonable. They say the Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, the New York Times is reasonable, I’m the only one who thinks this is a story, and they think I’m unfair and biased by pursuing it.
I hate to belabor that point; but Ingraham is right here, could you imagine if Karl Rove screamed and swore at an NBC reporter covering a story? Holy smokes… 😯
Well, no matter House GOP is now requesting special counsel to give holder a good probing:
Quote via Fox News:
EXCLUSIVE: House Republicans are calling for a special counsel to determine whether Attorney General Eric Holder perjured himself during his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee on Operation Fast and Furious, Fox News has learned.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, was sending a letter to President Obama on Tuesday arguing that Holder cannot investigate himself, and requesting the president instruct the Department of Justice to appoint a special counsel.
The question is whether Holder committed perjury during a Judiciary Committee hearing on May 3. At the time, Holder indicated he was not familiar with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives program known as Fast and Furious until about April 2011.
“I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks,” Holder testified.
Do you think this might be why President Obama is not really trying that hard to campaign for his reelection in 2012? Could be!
Update: Just a bit of a shout-out to reader “little acorn” who has been going to every Conservative and firearm forum out there and passing my blog posting around; I do not know who you are, but my goodness do you ever get around! 😆 😉 Anyhow, thanks to Sean Hannity’s Forum, Nebraska Firearms Forum, Subguns.com forum, Time Bomb 2000 Forums for linking here. It makes me feel good to know that people actually give two rips about what I actually have to say. Again, “little acorn,” I thank you, whomever you are. 😀
It is a sad thing, but I knew it was coming:
Reporting from Des Moines—
Michele Bachmann’s appearance on a talk radio show here should have been a breeze. Ronald Reagan was a sportscaster at the station in his early days, and his memorabilia is sprinkled around the office. The host was a friendly conservative.
But Bachmann repeatedly was asked the central question for her campaign: Does she have to win Iowa’s caucuses to keep her presidential campaign alive? She danced around an answer, saying she planned to win, until finally relenting when asked a third time whether failure would doom her effort.
“No, no, no, no,” Bachmann said, her voice growing uncertain. “Not necessarily; we might go on.”
It was a rare moment of audible frustration for the Minnesota congresswoman, and the break in her perennially cheery demeanor demonstrated just how much her bid does rest on Iowa.
After she formally announced her candidacy at her birthplace of Waterloo, about 100 miles northeast of here, Bachmann surged, capping the summer with a win at the straw poll in Ames. Since then, her candidacy has sputtered.
To be quite honest with you, I never really thought that Bachmann would get anywhere. That because the woman just had no substance at all. Not to mention her record is a bit light. She was, essentially, Sarah Palin with time served. Which is quite cruel to say; but it is the truth.
Now for my Conservative Christian viewpoint:
As most of you know, I am a Fundamentalist Baptist, King James Bible and all that. Anyhow, the reason why are not more Conservative Christian women running for office? Because most of them are not feminists and are busy staying at home and raising their children. Instead of throwing their principles into the wind and doing what obviously should be a man’s job.
I know it sounds horrible; but hey, there was a time, when it was not considered to be Conservative for a woman to run for office. I happen to be of that “Old School” mindset, that happens to believe that it still should be that way. 😀
I won’t even embed that video here; I used to give that moron the benefit of the doubt. No more. He is a piece of crap of the highest order.
Here is hoping that someone runs him over with a car or something. 😡
I mean, is it not even more obvious now, why Bill O’Reilly beat this sorry piece of crap in the 8:00 O’clock ratings war? The man is now on a network, that NOBODY watches and is now reduced to mocking people’s last name? How lame can you get?
What a loon….
Updated, 3:35 a.m. Sunday | In a tense showdown above the East River, the police arrested more than 700 demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street protests who took to the roadway as they tried to cross the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
The police said it was the marchers’ choice that led to the enforcement action.
“Protesters who used the Brooklyn Bridge walkway were not arrested,” Paul J. Browne, the chief spokesman for the New York Police Department, said. “Those who took over the Brooklyn-bound roadway, and impeded vehicle traffic, were arrested.”
But many protesters said they believed the police had tricked them, allowing them onto the bridge, and even escorting them partway across, only to trap them in orange netting after hundreds had entered.
“The cops watched and did nothing, indeed, seemed to guide us onto the roadway,” said Jesse A. Myerson, a media coordinator for Occupy Wall Street who marched but was not arrested.
NYC Police should “Kent State” their butts, if a few of those leftist turds ended up in body bags; they would be a little less inclined to pull stupid crap like this.
Just my opinion….
Compared to the leftists in London, who about burned the city to the ground; these pikers are a bunch of wanna-be’s.

There do seem to be two sides to this argument. Check out the exchange over at The National Review Online’s blog, the corner, between Andy McCarthy and Kevin Williamson Also, for good measure check out AllahPundit over Hotair’s feelings about it too. Just a short fun fact, AllahPundit was within 5 miles of the trade center when it was hit on 9/11.
Personally, I feel that the dude should have been killed; he was actively recruiting people for Jihad or in American terms, for war with the United States and would be considered a traitor to the United States. Due process? Feh. The people who died on 9/11 were not given any due process or even a choice whether to live or die. So, that whole bat shit crazy argument does not even fly with me.
Further more, this is why I despise Ron Paul with every damned fiber of my being; the man is a terrorist supporting jackal. Anyone who would side with those, or even have pity of those who would want to hurt this Country, ought be frog marched out into the public square and shot. I am sorry if that offends anyone; but it is just how I feel. Ron Paul and his merry band of leftists are a disgrace to this Country and everything it stands for. They call themselves Republicans and Conservatives — I call them bastards, evil, rotten to the damned core bastards, who should be locked in an insane asylum.
Update: Looks like Gary Johnson feels the same way, which is another reason why neither of these two idiots will ever be President:

On boy, more of that stupidity that I blogged about earlier….
This one comes via CBS NEWS:
Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz says it makes no difference which Republican presidential candidate scores the nomination for 2012 – because they all share extreme-right views that will not prevail over President Obama.
Wasserman Schultz, speaking in an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” said Sunday that any Republican candidate in the field would pose a “very stark contrast” when matched up against Mr. Obama in the 2012 election, particularly on issues like Social Security, immigration reform and Medicare.
“It doesn’t much matter which one of the Republicans gets nominated because they’re all the same,” the Florida Democrat said. “They are all embracing and bear-hugging the Tea Party. Moving to the right – they can’t move to the right far enough.
“They all favor privatizing Social Security, which would pull the safety net out from under our seniors, and favor ending Medicare as we know it… They all are wrong on immigration reform when it comes to Hispanics in the states,” she continued.
I know what I’d like to call her, but if did. I’d be proving those who don’t like me right. I have to keep believe that all of “them” are not the same.
Others: weasel zippers
You know, I hate to be an a-hole about this sort of a thing. But there just some things that I cannot and will not overlook.
Anyhow, some woman of Arab and Jewish decent was detained at Detroit Metro Airport on a flight from Denver. She was strip-searched and now has taken to her blog to whine about it and also use racist imagery. For the record, here is a news article about it.
She starts her blog posting:
Silly me. I thought flying on 9/11 would be easy. I figured most people would choose not to fly that day so lines would be short, planes would be lightly filled and though security might be ratcheted up, we’d all feel safer knowing we had come a long way since that dreadful Tuesday morning 10 years ago.
But then armed officers stormed my plane, threw me in handcuffs and locked me up.
At first, when I started reading the post; I actually felt sorry for the lady. You know, innocent woman being strip-searched and such. But then, as I got further in the article, I started seeing things like this:
They took him to another room, and I heard an officer tell him to remove his clothes. He was going to be searched. I could not fully grasp what was happening. I stared at the yellow walls and listened to a few officers talk about the overtime they were racking up, and I decided that I hated country music. I hated speedboats and shitty beer in coozies and fat bellies and rednecks. I thought about Abu Ghraib and the horror to which those prisoners were exposed. I thought about my dad and his prescience. I was glad he wasn’t alive to know about what was happening to me. I thought about my kids, and what would have happened if they had been there when I got taken away. I contemplated never flying again. I thought about the incredible waste of taxpayer dollars in conducting an operation like this. I wondered what my rights were, if I had any at all. Mostly, I could not believe I was sitting in some jail cell in some cold, undisclosed building surrounded by “the authorities.”
Another female officer, this one in jeans and a t-shirt came to visit me. She introduced herself as an agent–Homeland Security. She removed my handcuffs and had me follow her to a different room down a long hall and through a few doors. As we walked, I got a glimpse of the watch-stealer, a chubby middle-aged white guy with a buzz cut. He didn’t look too different from some of the officers.
After fingerprinting me and asking me about my height/weight/place and date of birth and so on, a middle-aged white cop with a beer belly and a flat top returned me–without handcuffs–to the cell. I waited, wondering if I would be spending the night locked up. I thought about the last words my husband said to me while I was still on the plane waiting on the tarmac, “They must have found out there was a Hebshi on the plane.” We joke about this at times, that because of my ethnicity I am being scrutinized but I had no intention of putting that out to the universe and making it happen.
…and the real humdinger is this one:
I thought about Malcom X and how bravely and fastidiously he studied and wrote while he was in prison, how his solitude enabled him to transform his anger into social change and personal betterment. That’s when I decided to write this post. I needed to explain what had happened–was happening–to me. I was not going to be silent. Still, I wondered what my rights were, and though I felt violated and scared I wasn’t sure that our new laws protected me from this treatment.
There is also this….:
I wondered what my rights were, and though I felt violated and scared I wasn’t sure that our new laws protected me from this treatment.
If this woman wants any sympathy from me, she needs to get off of the racist stereotypes of white people. If I would have penned this article, ripping on this woman, because she happens to be a Jewish/Arab half breed, I would be called every sort of names, you know, like Anti-Semitic and racist? I found that to be extremely offensive and I told her so, in some very colorful language as to that fact.
Further more, what about the people in the World Trade Center towers, who had to choose between burning alive or being crushed to death or jumping from the building and dying. You do not think those people did not feel violated and scared?
Again, I do not cheer this woman’s misfortune, but this is the era we live in; the post-911 era. Thanks to the action of a group of Arab Muslim terrorists, we now live into a era of hyper-security. If this woman wants to register a complaint; she should try registering it to Al-Qaeda, better yet, let her register a complaint to the Muslim community here in America and abroad and condemn them for not standing up and saying that they are not doing enough to stand up against radical Muslims.
I have to wonder, how much of that story was embellished or as we usually call it — made up?
Remember folks, As Debbie Schlussel says, 9/11 was a MUSLIM Job and we, the American people were the true victims, not Arabs or Muslims. But then again, this woman sounds like a moronic liberal idiot, who always thinks directly backward of a sane, rational, human being. As Dr. Michael Savage says — Liberalism is a mental disorder. Update: Don’t believe me? Just look right here. How stupid can people be?!?
Update: It appears that my article has hit a nerve. I got one thing to say…:
You see, nobody thought of their rights. No one cared. Liberals, Muslims and Democrats thought we were the “Great Satan” and deserved it. This is why I bitched about this article.
This guy should get the award for DUMB ASS OF THE YEAR!
The country’s automakers should ditch their focus on SUVs and trucks in favor of smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles, President Obama said Monday.
“You can’t just make money on SUVs and trucks,” Obama said during a town hall forum in Cannon Falls, Minn. “There is a place for SUVs and trucks, but as gas prices keep on going up, you have got to understand the market. People are going to try to save money.”
Obama has positioned the revival and reshaping of the auto industry as a major part of his administration’s push to improve the economy and create jobs.
“When I came into office they were talking about the liquidation of GM and Chrysler, and a lot of folks said you can’t help them, and it’s a waste of the government’s money to try and help them,” Obama said Monday. “But what I said was, we can’t afford to lose up to a million jobs in this country, particularly in the Midwest.”
But yet, he is traveling in one of these:
I think Obama needs to work on that messaging thing a little. First, he says the economy is not his fault, when actually, it was; and now this? This dude is out of touch; and I mean BADLY out of touch….with reality!
Update: The News Bird links in… Thank you!
This guy is unbelievable!
At a town hall meeting on his campaign-style tour of the Midwest, President Obama claimed that his economic program “reversed the recession” until recovery was frustrated by events overseas. And then, Obama said, with the economy in an increasingly precarious position, the recovery suffered another blow when Republicans pressed the White House for federal spending cuts in exchange for an increase in the national debt limit, resulting in a deal Obama called a “debacle.”
“We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again,” Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. “But over the last six months we’ve had a run of bad luck.” Obama listed three events overseas — the Arab Spring uprisings, the tsunami in Japan, and the European debt crises — which set the economy back.
“All those things have been headwinds for our economy,” Obama said. “Now, those are things that we can’t completely control. The question is, how do we manage these challenging times and do the right things when it comes to those things that we can control?”
“The problem,” Obama continued, “is that we’ve got the kind of partisan brinksmanship that is willing to put party ahead of country, that is more interested in seeing their political opponents lose than seeing the country win. Nowhere was that more evident than in this recent debt ceiling debacle.”
The man is a typical politician; when things fail, “It wasn’t my fault!” Um, yes, Obama, it was…. Let’s review shall we? –:
The charts don’t lie! (H/T to Gateway Pundit)
So, Yes, President Obama; it is YOUR fault, your spending debacle to try to grow the economy FAILED and now we’re saddled with debt, our economy is still damned broke and yet, you refuse to take responsibility for it!
Just to show how much of a damned blowhard this big eared bastard piece of shit really is; instead of staying at the White House and doing his damned job, like he is supposed to, this big eared piece of shit is going around traveling, trying to make people still like him, in a damned bus that costs 1.1 million TAXPAYER dollars! That’s right, bought and paid for with YOUR money!
Enough is enough! This man has got to go! Vote different in 2012. I know that I will be.
This is unreal:
CBS News has learned the buses were purchased in recent months at a cost of just under $1.1-million each and will serve as part of the fleet of vehicles the Service uses for all of its protectees.
In the past, the Secret Service would lease buses as needed and outfit them with the security and communications equipment.
“We have not been satisfied with the level of protection offered by leased buses,” said a Secret Service official.
Last year, the Secret Service placed an order for two buses with the Hemphill Brothers Coach Company of Whites Creek, Tennessee at a combined cost of $2,191,960.
The buses have lavish interiors and are usually leased to transport stars of the entertainment industry.
The company’s website says its clients have included Beyonce, Cher, Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Jack Nicholson, and Pope Benedict.
That’s right folks, you are paying for that bus!
…and that was after 9/11! So, what’s Bambi Teleprompter’s excuse? Say what you want; but this President is nothing more than a damned yellow-bellied coward; period, end of story.
Seeing that what Obama just did to the trucking industry; I hope some driver cuts that damned bus off and it ends up in a ditch somewhere. 😡
No, I did not watch the debate; mainly because I was in the bed at 9:00opm. I have been doing that as of late; in bed by 9 and will sleep soundly till about midnight or so, then get up, take a leak and back to bed till 4 in the morning. It is indeed an old man’s schedule and I am pushing 40 now, so I might as well play the part. In fact, it is 4:29a.m. now as I file this blog posting. I will set this one to go live at 8:00a.m.
From what I can understand and have been able to read; the debate was quite lively. HotAir has good coverage, as does The Other McCain, with a blow by blow of the Debate itself. Oh yeah, Romney the Mormon Moron ™ screamed at some liberal heckler — that must make him a real Republican now!
If it seems that I am being overly sarcastic and dismissive of the entire debate and straw poll, it is because that I am dismissive and sarcastic regarding the entire affair. This is because these primary polls and debates are nothing more than partisan fashion shows, to see who is more “Republican-y.” I am an independent “right of center,” as a Blogger and as a person. I find this entire partisan fashion show to be most sickening.
The truth is my friends that half of those people were lying and the other half were reciting talking points, given to them by some idiot, who never served a damned day in office ever. In other words, those idiots were telling those people and in the people watching that debate, exactly what they wanted to hear. I would say the same thing about a Democratic Party Debate too. I mean, just look at Obama and all the promises he broke while campaigning.
Further, let me say this; Conservatives and Republicans alike made a mistake as they are about to make again, I think. In 1980, a former Democratic Party politician came out of California, with Midwestern roots. This man was able to woo all factions of the Republican Party and of the Conservative movement into one big tent. He made overtures and nuanced promises to the Conservative Christian World, the libertarian section and defense hawks. He ended up fulfilling the defense promises and did attempt to rein in spending as well. However, this same man, who made huge overtures to the Conservative Christian World, proceeded to make it to the White House, said, “Thanks for your support, now go away,” and proceeded to fulfill his own personal political agenda. That man was President Ronald Reagan. We still have abortion, we still do not have Prayer in schools, and the morality in this Country is worse now, than it was when Ronald Reagan was President.
One would think that the Conservative movement, especially the Conservative Christians would have learned by now that the Republican Party is not a party to be trusted. Especially seeing that we are better informed and better educated people, due to the rise of the internet and online information. It is as the old saying goes, “Those who do not learn from their mistakes —- are doomed to repeat them.”
I just do truly hope and pray; that the Republican Party picks a true Conservative and no some imperialist. God knows, we have had eight good years of big spending and imperialism in this Country, which is why we are, where we are at now in this Country. I hope that the Republican Party has learned its lesson, that wars cost money; and when a nation is barrowing more than its own GDP, something is terribly wrong. Please, Lord; do not allow this Republican Party to make that same tragic and fatal mistake again. Please, No more Republicans who are drunk on spending and wars. We simply cannot afford that again — not this time — not ever again.
Yes, I know about silly riots in London. My question is this, what the heck happened to jolly old England? Better yet, what the happened to the mighty Great Britain?
I’ll tell you what happened. Liberal Progressivism and Multiculturalism —- that’s what! 😡
What kind of Country sits back and allows knuckle-dragging nimrods trash and burn a great Country like England? Seriously! I mean, at what point does the police or officials in Great Britain say, “Okay, screw it; this pacifistic bullshit is not cutting it anymore, it is time to bring out the REAL GUNS and the REAL BULLETS!” and start mowing these stupid bastards down? When?!?!?!
I saw those pictures, reminds me of another very famous socialist uprising — here in Detroit!
Let us compare, shall we?
and then here in Detroit — 1967:
The truth is, in 1967, blacks were free to work, live and play where they wanted to. There was no oppression of blacks at all, period, end of damned discussion! 😡 Down south in Alabama, maybe; but not in Detroit.
What happened here was this; a group of far leftists decided that they resented the fact that white people were running the City of Detroit Government and that the police force in Detroit was all white, so, they decided to take it out on the businesses in Detroit. So, they burned them to the ground. All because of the fact that the city of Detroit had a special unit, called the STRESS unit — which stood for Stop the Robberies, Enjoy Safe Streets by the way; that kept blacks from robbing and killing white people and other black people in the city.
The result? This:
This is what London, England and most likely the rest of Great Britain will look like, if they do not put down that Marxist uprising; and I do mean fast. That above, is what class warfare and progressivism gets you — ruined cities. Believe me when I tell you, Detroit, Michigan is beyond ruined and this is why, progressivism and class warfare. Not to mention Multiculturalism or what it really should be called, “Punishing White people for things that happened before the majority of them in this day and age were even born.”
I mean, these rioters in England are doing it, why? — because they know damned well that they can get away with it. I mean, what kind of a message does it send to the rest of the world, when a group of thugs says, “We’re doing this, because we want rich people to know, that we’re gonna rule you by causing fear?” It sends to me a message of cowardice, of the English Government, that’s what! It sends a message that the Government of Great Britain are cowering down to domestic terrorists.
In closing; could this happen in America? Yes. But it is very far off. We still have a second amendment and Conservatives who are still willing to fight. But our media is well on its way. The good thing is, we here in America, have our own Conservative media, that does push back against the Liberal controlled, owned and financed media.
First, let me say this; I do not advocate what happened in this video to come. Any sort of hate crime is awful and the guys who did this, ought to be sentenced to death.
The Video: (Via CNN)
Yes that above is horrible and the media rightly is bringing it to attention, But, when blacks attack whites or when Muslims shoot up a Military base; nothing it said by media outlets, nothing is said. I just do not understand it.
What I want to know is; how do they know this person was involved? That video was grainy. I did not see any definite proof that this man even did it! Not only that; how do we know this man did not provoke the attack? How can we trust the credibility of the witnesses; are they black too? Can we trust them? I’m sure there are answers for all that; but the report did not include those answers.
Again, I do not justify this madness; I simply am pointing out the double standard. I guess you could say that I have “a dog in the fight.”
Again, let me state this; both crimes, the one above in the video and the one I linked; which is to previous posting of mine — are equally wrong, evil, immoral and should be punished as such. I just do not understand why the liberal media does not treat them equally. They should, but they do not.
This is nothing more than an attack on a Jewish Conservative who dares to stand against global Jihad. The Anti-Semites who write against her, that being ALL of them; should be exposed.
The story via Hotline on call:
Scandal-plagued Rep. David Wu, D-Ore., announced Tuesday he is resigning in the wake of a report that he had an unwanted sexual encounter with a teenage girl.
“It has been the greatest privilege of my life to be a United States Congressman. Rare is the nation in which an immigrant child can become a national political figure. I thank God and my parents for the privilege of being an American,” Wu said in a statement.
“Now, however, the time has come to hand on the privilege of high office. I cannot care for my family the way I wish while serving in Congress and fighting these very serious allegations.
But Wu added he will remain in office through the ongoing debt limit negotiations.
“The wellbeing of my children must come before anything else. With great sadness, I therefore intend to resign effective upon the resolution of the debt-ceiling crisis,” said Wu. “This is the right decision for my family, the institution of the House, and my colleagues. It is also the only correct decision to avoid any distraction from the important work at hand in Washington.
Wu’s announcement comes after he spent the weekend insisting he would not step down but conceding he wouldn’t run for reelection in 2012. However, Democratic leaders had stepped up pressure on the congressman to resign, hoping to avoid another embarrassing sex scandal.
The Portland Oregonian notes that Wu’s resignation announcement came shortly after the state’s two Democratic senators, Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, released a joint statement calling on Wu to step down.
“This is a critical time for our state and our nation and Oregonians need every member of their Congressional delegation to be effective,” the two said. “While no one takes pleasure in asking a colleague to resign, we believe he can no longer be an effective representative for our shared constituents and should, in the best interest of Oregon, step down.”
Wu, first elected in 1998, was the first Chinese-American to serve in the House.
Ed Morrissey quips:
Why bother? A debt-ceiling vote in the House is not likely to be a close-run affair regardless of which version gets a floor vote. There is an outside chance that a single vote could carry the day, but it’s exceedingly small. By the same reasoning, Wu could argue that bailing out on his district will prevent those voters from having representation on another several months of critical votes, some of which may be close than the vote will be on this issue.
This is apparently the outcome most desired by House Democratic leadership, but it’s hard to understand why. Wu’s district (OR-01) is a safe Democratic hold in regular elections, with a D+8 advantage in the Cook index. It’s not even clear that Wu would have lost a re-election bid in 2012, but even a non-incumbent Democrat should have held that seat with Barack Obama at the top of the ticket. Now Oregon will have to call a special election to fill out the remainder of Wu’s term, and a Republican could take advantage of the oddities of special-election turnouts to grab the seat. It’s not likely to happen, but the odds are better than in the next election.
Typical of the Dems… anyhow, here’s what I think of, when I hear his name:
Wait!…..is that…..RAAAAACIST? 😯
Hawkings is whining about Blog traffic again. (No direct link for him, he is an asshole….I don’t like the way he treated David Frum and Debbie Schlussel)
This guy, who by the way, is friends with people who like to stalk and harass Jews — now seems to think that he is the newly minted big guru of the Right-Wing Blogosphere. Truthfully, the other thing big about him, is his belly and the space between his fucking ears.
Further more, as for what he wrote; it’s pretty damned hard to get blog traffic, when you have mentally deranged stalkers who call you an Anti-Semite and a racist; when none of it is honestly true. They they start intimidating other bloggers to remove you from their blog rolls like the little fucking soft-fascists that they fucking are! All because you dared to criticize one of the princesses of, what I like to call, the “veal pen right” — or you might have happened to mention that a particular ethnic group was behind a certain big stink that was being raised in the media. Yeah, that will get you labeled a hater! Further more, it is hard to even run a blog; when you make a mistake, that you are most regretful of, and the mentally insane people will not accept an apology, or even accept the fact THEY might have caused the mistake! 😡
Another thing I have noticed about the “Veal Pen” right, is that they honestly hate the truth. Oh, they like the truth, as
long as it fits their little fucking partisan agenda or something like that; but when people, like me — who are the real free thinkers –— who like to point the hypocrisy of some of the “Veal Pen” right, or the Neo-Conservative right, as they were called during the Bush era. They jump to the defensive, and like to employ the tactics of the Marxist Saul Alinsky left.
Either way, the way I see it; if you are blogging to get rich. Get the hell out of it, because you will never do it. Especially in politics. The field is just too saturated. Only people that get rich are the well-connected bloggers or the one’s who are famous already and decide to start blogging.You think I sit here and do this stupid stuff because I am trying to get rich? Please. I do this, mainly because I really do not have much else to do; and because I happen to love my Country. I also happen to believe that Barack Obama, and the Marxist left (Kinda like the Marxist — I mean —Veal Pan Right….) are wrong about every damned thing that they have been doing since day one of this Administration.
Now, have I made money at it? Very little. Nobody clicks ads like they used to. I am not supposed to even mention or ask anyone to click my Adsense stuff; which is at the top and in my left sidebar. I used to run BlogAds here; but their blogger relations guy decided to be an asshole and I removed their ads from my blog. No matter, they did not make me any kind of money to be proud of anyhow. I do keep a PayPal donation tab up there; recently some dude, who happened to like something I wrote tossed like $5.00 in the jar. I was shocked, it was the first donation I had gotten this year. I got a few last year, and in 2008 during the election. But recently, outside of the recent donation — the TipJar has been bare. I did get two people, that bought some gold from the gold company that I am an affiliate through. I made $157.59 on those purchases. Now, if I got like 10 of those a day?!?! I never have to worry about anything at all, ever. But, nobody is buying or donating anything right now, as it is a tight economy. It is not just me; it is everyone.
As for Hawking’s idea of getting big or getting hooked up with other people. I got two words: Screw Him. I will never, ever sell out to a Corporate Entity, ever. I will explain why; Here at political byline, Rupert Murdoch does not control me, Salem Media does not control me — see where I am going with this? Corporate funding or associations mean control of the message. It happens with the left — and the right. Truly independent media and blogging; whether of a liberal or Conservative slant is getting more and more rare by the day. I am not for, nor have I ever been for a consolation or a collectivist effort in blogging, which sounds so….progressive. Maybe Hawkings is showing his true colors — Fancy that.
So, there, my response to that idiot lard ass’s posting and by the way Hawkings; try some fucking Jenny Craig!
