Transparently Obvious partisans at the #Spitehouse Oct. 8th, 2013 @ 08:19 am
Control the optics on this revelation. 

Lands held in trust for the nation, and public memorials are off limits to the public, but partisan friends of Obama are granted special access anyway. 

Government shutdowns do not seem to impede his incessant campaigning at all.  Obama is telling us he's the victim here, but it sure doesn't look like that. 

Shutdown Theater: Take a hike, war heroes, we've got an immigration rally to hold | Human Events:
World War II veterans were confronted with Obama’s Park Service shock troops and Barry-cades, kept away from their open-air, generally non-supervised memorial because the poor widdle shut-down federal government supposedly just couldn’t afford to let people view a monument to the heroes who destroyed the Axis.

Vietnam veterans got the bum’s rush from their memorial, which requires even less active supervision than the World War II site, seeing as how it’s a wall. There was plenty of manpower available to eject the heroes of Vietnam when they moved the Barry-cades to pay their respects.

You’re not even supposed to look at Mount Rushmore during Barack Obama’s temper tantrum. You can have it back when you give him the money he wants, America, but not a moment before.

But an “immigration rally” gets red-carpet service, as the ostensibly closed National Mall is thrown wide open for an event sponsored by union bosses with powerful Democrat Party connections.

So how much do we save with National Mall "closed" Oct. 1st, 2013 @ 09:58 am
Silly Season hysteria story of the day. The National Mall is closed, and it's illegal to walk across the lawn there.  Illegal to look at the monuments.  What sort of crap is this.

You can't walk across the National Mall because the Gov is shut down.  Of course the Gov can't stop you either.  So what is the cost of the budget item {yeah I know we don't have a budget} that keeps the Mall open? Is it necessary if anyone can just walk in? National parks are huge, just go around the blockades.

Some of this hysteria seems over the top because the MSM and Democrats have already used these stories to tr to drive panic around the Sequester to increase taxes.  The White House tours are still shut to school kids. 

It Will Be Illegal to Walk on National Mall if Gov’t Shuts Down, National Park Service Says — How Will They Enforce It? | TheBlaze.com:
It will be illegal to walk on the National Mall if the federal government shuts down, a spokesperson for the National Parks Service (NPS) said Monday.

NPS Spokeswoman Carol Johnson told TheBlaze Monday the entire National Mall would legally close to the public during a shutdown, but admitted it would be difficult, if not impossible, to enforce.

“The mall theoretically is legally closed,” Johnson said. “Now, obviously people walking across it … there is nothing much we can do, but it is legally closed.”

Leadership devoid in a vacuum Sep. 27th, 2013 @ 10:56 am
He will shake hands with despicable supporters of terror and genocide, but shaking hands with a Republican he can not stomach.

Smart Diplomacy, Partisan Politics.

House Republican: 'Where's the president in all of this?' - The Hill's Floor Action:
"Where's the president in all of this? The bully pulpit can just as equally be used for constructive leadership as it can be used for political showmanship."

Notes from the UN General assembly Sep. 24th, 2013 @ 11:32 am
Listening to the UN General gathering and speeches by leaders.  Surprizingly common themes with leftist dog whistle issues.

France calls for Climate control, new taxes and new powers for the UN leaders.  A call for a new world order.

Jordon calls for new rules to lead into the future.  Diversity Tolerance and minority rights. Jordan asks for help in handling inflow of Syrian refugees. No unilateral actions!  1967lines for a Palestinian state.

Slovakia - Syrian war is the issue and needs more Diplomacy to solve. Punish crimes against humanity. Condemns Chemical Weapons. US continued engagement is critical.  Afghanistan needs help to establish working constitutional government.  Africa remains a problem, needs preventive diplomacy and more attention. Arms control for Conflict prevention.

Columbia - fighting guerrilla conflict and calling the guerrillas to come to the peace table. End armed conflict. No immunity for crimes against humanity. Readdress the drug war. Drug trafficking fuels conflict.

Qatar - Palestinian state to address colonial.  All states have rights to use nuclear power, but Middle East should be Nuclear weapon free.  Climate Change is the top of our concerns.

Monaco - Peace, respect and dignity, tolerance and Freedom.  Sustainable development. Control of weapon stocks in Syria.  Punish the Crimes against humanity, give access to UN inspectors. 

America's standing in the world is down uner Obama Sep. 24th, 2013 @ 09:57 am
At least she wasn't smelling brimstone at the podium.  Tough talk for the President at the UN gathering of World Leaders.  The US Media is focused on Obama meeting with the newest Iranian President, but not on what the other world leaders are saying and feeling at the UN. 

Leaders world over have experienced a lot of concern from their citizens over the revelations about NSA spying.  More than we have seen in our own country.  With the Snowden leaks and wars Obama has started in the Middle-East his world wide approval is lower than Bush's ever was. 

Brazil’s president condemns NSA spying - The Washington Post:
Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff on Tuesday delivered a stinging rebuke of electronic espionage by the National Security Agency, telling a gathering of world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly that American eavesdropping constitutes “a breach of international law and an affront” to Brazil’s sovereignty.

America’s spying efforts pose a threat to democracy throughout the world, Rousseff said, as she proposed U.N. regulation of cyberspace to ensure the integrity of the Internet.

“Without the right of privacy, there is no real freedom of speech or freedom of opinion, and so there is no actual democracy,” Rousseff said. And “without respect for [a nation’s] sovereignty, there is no basis for proper relations among nations.”

Human sacrifice of the innocent in the name of the prophet. Sep. 23rd, 2013 @ 10:26 am
The mind set of Muslim murderers appears to be if you are not a member of the religion of peace then you deserve death.  They divide the world into us and them.  There will be tests, and they don't grade on a curve.

Muslim revolutionaries are attacking malls and churches, anyone but soldiers.  We may not be at war with Muslims, but they are in war with us.  War as a religious sacrament. They worship death.  It's all part of their fervor to revere their prophet. 

Two Muslim Outrages | Power Line:
Peshawar is more than 3,300 miles from Nairobi, but the attacks were like two peas in a pod, both carried out by extremist Muslim groups against “infidels” and both arising out of political grievances, since Islam is mostly a political movement, and only secondarily a religion.

In Peshawar, the Taliban-linked group that carried out the suicide bombing said that it was in retaliation against American drone strikes. From our perspective, that doesn’t make sense, since the people the terrorists killed were, like them, Pakistanis who had nothing at all to do with drones. From an Islamic point of view, however, the mass murder was logical: the people the bombers killed were infidels, and all infidels are of a piece. The fact that they were fellow Pakistanis–not to mention, entirely innocent–was irrelevant.

Confiscation of pension funds by the state Sep. 23rd, 2013 @ 09:15 am
Not a baseless fear.  This happens when Government gets too big to fail and runs out of other people's money.  It takes what it wants.


Poland Confiscates Half Of Private Pension Funds To "Cut" Sovereign Debt Load | Zero Hedge:
in the past week, Poland took a page straight out of Rahm Emanuel's playbook and in order to not let a crisis go to waste, announced quietly that it would transfer to the state - i.e., confiscate - the bulk of assets owned by the country's private pension funds

Nancy Pelosi hangs out with the 1% at Soros' wedding Sep. 22nd, 2013 @ 08:27 am
George Soros, the currency manipulating multi-Billionaire behind many Liberal causes and funding, is getting married.  Financial and Political leaders from across the world are in attendance. 

Nancy Pelosi one of the caring spokes-mouths for the Democrats, one who tells you that Republicans want you dead and only care about the Rich, is one of a select group of friends invited to the ceremony.

I wonder if cameras or drones will be allowed anywhere near this? Will Clinton or Biden show up?  I would expect them too, just to ask for donations to their next campaign.

Political bigs expected at George Soros wedding | Page Six:
Billionaire investor George Soros, 83, will marry 42-year-old Tamiko Bolton today, followed by a huge party at his Caramoor Estate in Bedford, with 500 guests.

We’re told the couple will say their vows in front of a select group of friends and family before they celebrate with hundreds from 4:30 p.m. onward.

Those expected include World Bank president Jim Yong Kim and Toomas Hendrik Ilves, president of Estonia; Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, president of Liberia; and Edi Rama, prime minister of Albania.

Also there will be Paul Tudor Jones II and Rep. Nancy Pelosi.

Civilians with firearms, stop madmen firing into crowds. Sep. 17th, 2013 @ 10:35 pm
The Texas Bell tower shooter was pinned down by deer rifle fire and put away with the help of volunteers deputized on the spot.

Instapundit » Blog Archive » SO THAT PUTZ ERIC BOEHLERT WAS ON TWITTER TRYING TO PRETEND THAT ONLY POLICE HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH…:
Compare that to this story from the America of 2013: ‘If We Had the Ammunition, We Could’ve Cleared that Building,’ Son at Navy Yard Told Dad. “My son was at Marine Barracks — at the Navy Yard yesterday – and they had weapons with them, but they didn’t have ammunition. And they said, ‘We were trained, and if we had the ammunition, we could’ve cleared that building.’ Only three people had been shot at that time, and they could’ve stopped the rest of it.” So, basically, the civilians of Austin, Texas in 1966 were better prepared to respond to a shooter than the Marines of 2013.

No Official Memorial organized for #Benghazi deaths, coworkers organize their own Sep. 15th, 2013 @ 09:12 pm
Hillary was in Iowa with Biden doing the Presidential candidate dog and pony show .  A Benghazi memorial would make her look bad so it couldn't be allowed.  It won't be heavily reported on either.

State Dept. Staffers Held Private Benghazi Memorial | TPMDC:
Staffers at State Department headquarters in Washington, D.C. held their own private ceremony Wednesday to commemorate the first anniversary of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya after finding out the agency would not be organizing a formal, official memorial service.

The Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi attack left four people dead, including the American Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and Sean Smith, an information management officer in the department’s foreign service.

A State Department staffer who worked with Stevens in Libya and asked not to be named told TPM there were about 20 to 25 staffers at the memorial.
