This put a big smile on my face and I hope it will do the same for you!
A true leader calls out someone who has no clue how to lead.
Harvest is here so I’m a one-woman canning machine. But along with this awesome time of year is my Superbowl…the election of 2012 where we banish Barack Hussein Obama to poorly written passages in history textbooks. The first debate has happened and even the New Yorker had to admit the real Obama showed up, the empty chair, the empty suit.
It’s only going to get worse for him from this point out. Romney is going to pummel him, wake him up with smelling salts and then pummel him again just for fun. I was a little worried about three months ago but all that has changed.
You’ve never seen so much Republican motivation to vote. I haven’t seen one Obama sign and I am in Illinois! Not one bumper sticker….not one t-shirt. (Update: Mr. Fox just informed me he saw one. Just one.) It is decidedly NOT 2008. It is 2012 and the people are feeling a worse squeeze than when the Lightbringer took office. Hate to break it to you Barry, but you just don’t cut it.
So I’m jazzed. I’m giddy. I’m walking on air because my country is about to return to sanity where folks earn what they work for, keep what they make and drill for oil we’re sitting on. So because of this good mood, I’m going to share my recipe for the fried green tomatoes with Chipotle ranch dip. I’m munching on. them right now and let me tell you….wow. If you have some tomato plants out back, chances are there are a bunch of green ones on the vine. Go grab some.
This couldn’t be good news for Obama and his team. The LA Times is reporting that William Daley gave Obama his letter of resignation last week and will be replaced by Budget Director Jack Lew. Daley has only been Chief of Staff for one year. The change will take place by the end of this month and according to White House staffers….Daley’s resignation took Obama completely by surprise. Daley has stated publicly that he wanted to return to Chicago but would stay by Obama’s side until after his re-election.
So…why the sudden change of heart? Daley is a very smart man and a very seasoned politician so it stands to reason that he wants to jump ship before it sinks. I wouldn’t want my name associated with a losing team. I’m not buying the “I’ve just got to get back to Chicago… the city that I love.” If things were all hunky-dory in Washington then Daley would be all over Obama’s re-election campaign.
So why the extremely sudden departure?
In the middle of a very tough election year?
What do you guys think?
I didn’t watch the debate last night. I couldn’t stomach it. I think we’ve seen enough debates to know what everyone is going to say to the same old tired questions that idiots like Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulus ask. I did follow what was happening on Twitter. I prefer to read what other’s think. The primary reason for last night’s debate was to see if Newt, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Jon Huntsman and Ron Paul were going to go after Mittens. The LSM wanted a bloodbath….they wanted a GOP remake of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” (with Newt, of course, playing Freddie Kreuger). They didn’t get it though. Sure there were some zings thrown here and there but they were just little cat scratches compared to the damage that could have been done by Freddie’s knives.
I truly believe that Newt wanted to do the unexpected. He didn’t want to give the left a “see we told you so” debate. He took all the hot…toxic…foul air out of their balloons. They are absolutely depressed over last night’s debate. Here’s a quote from MSNBC news this morning…
“A Saturday night debate in Manchester yielded few defining moments, and did little to add new scrutiny that had been expected of Mitt Romney, the frontrunner in the Granite State’s primary on Tuesday.”
They are hoping and praying that round 2 (this morning’s debate) will yield at least a pint or two of Romney’s blood. They desperately want the GOP to slaughter each other between now and November so that Obama…the most un-American President in the history of our country…can win re-election and continue his path of destruction.
I love Newt Gingrich. He’s the right man for the job. I do not like Mitt Romney. He is no real friend of conservatives. I do not like the GOP establishment and their blind stupidity….but I hate Barack Obama and all that he and his goons are doing to this magnificent nation. I will fight to keep Mittens off the GOP ballot but if he is the nominee…I will fight for him.
We can not let EVIL win in November.
The headline should really read “It’s T day for Holder” because today is the day that our lying and devious attorney general goes before the congressional committee to testify (once again) about Fast and Furious. Remember when he last testified before the committee, back in May, he told everyone that he had only heard about Fast and Furious a “couple of weeks” before but information discovered since his testimony suggests that he knew about it way before that. According to sources close to the investigation, the committee doesn’t exactly have a “smoking gun” piece of evidence that says that Holder is behind the whole thing but they do have a mountain of circumstantial evidence and conflicting testimony from other witnesses that points to the fact that Holder is either lying through his teeth (and thus committing perjury) about whether he knew about this scandal or he is the absolute most incompetent Attorney General ever for not knowing what his underlings were doing down on our border with Mexico. Either way…many on Capitol Hill think he should go.
The Daily Caller obtained an advanced transcript of Holder’s testimony and as predicted by many…he’s going to push for tighter gun control measures in the US because of Fast and Furious and he’s going to blame the local authorities for cooking up the misguided scheme.
Here’s a little preview of what he is supposed to say today…
“Today, I would like to correct some of the inaccurate — and irresponsible — accusations surrounding Fast and Furious,” Holder’s prepared testimony reads. “Some of the overheated rhetoric might lead you to believe that this local, Arizona-based operation was somehow the cause of the epidemic of gun violence in Mexico. In fact, Fast and Furious was a flawed response to, not the cause of, the flow of illegal guns from the United States into Mexico.”
In his testimony, Holder also advocates for new gun-control laws that he says would have halted, or at least prevented, Operation Fast and Furious. Holder echoes California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s comments from last week, when she argued that stricter gun laws would have stopped law enforcement agents from facilitating the sale of guns to Mexican drug cartels.
Wait a minute….is he actually going to say that we need tighter gun control laws so that the ATF can’t pull off another debacle like Fast and Furious? In other words, we need to revise our 2nd amendment to protect ourselves from our own ATF?
Will the insanity ever stop?
Sorry about the football reference. I’m a big Bama fan.
Fox is reporting that the Department of Justice, at the request of Obama, has filed an appeal to block Alabama’s new immigration law.
The Obama administration asked an appeals court on Friday to block the enforcement of Alabama’s strict immigration law — widely considered to be the toughest in the nation — arguing it invites discrimination against foreign-born citizens and legal immigrants and is at odds with federal policy.
What federal policy? You mean the one that the government won’t enforce? Oh, they must mean the federal policy that is to “look the other way and allow millions and millions of illegal aliens to flood over our border so that they can take advantage of our country and push us to the brink of bankruptcy.”
Alabama is ignoring the appeal. Woo Hoo!
The Justice Department’s appeal said parts of the law conflict with federal rules, and that “attempts to drive aliens `off the grid’ will only impede the removal process established by federal law.” It also said the legislation could impact diplomatic relations with foreign countries.”Alabama is not in a position to answer to other nations for the consequences of its policy,” it said. “That is the responsibility of the federal government, which speaks for all the states and must ensure that the consequences of one state’s foray in to the realm of immigration law are not visited upon the nation as a whole.”
What? Did they just say that this legislation could impact the diplomatic relations that we have with foreign countries? Really?
Did Eric Holder and Obama worry about diplomatic relations when they authorized Fast and Furious…allowing hundreds of assault weapons to walk into Mexico so that Mexican citizens could be murdered? I bet that did wonders for our relationship with Mexico.
You would think that the Justice Department would want to lay low right now and NOT get involved with anything Mexican but I guess this is the obligatory liberal pro-illegal game plan so Holder has to get involved.
God forbid a rogue state like Alabama would actually want to try and defend it’s sovereignty.
Go Bama Go! We’re with you 100%
Reports are out this afternoon (via Hotair) that the House GOP are calling for a special prosecution to further investigate just how much AG Eric Holder knew about the Fast and Furious operation. House Judiciary Chair Lamar Smith (R-Tx) has sent a letter to Obama (today) asking for a special prosecutor to investigate Holder’s May testimony in front of the Judiciary Committee and whether or not he committed perjury. During his testimony, Holder claimed that he had never heard of Fast and Furious until around April of this year but new evidence has surfaced (in the form of memos… dated July of 2010) that shows that Holder was notified of 1,500 guns that were supplied to Mexican drug cartel members. There is also evidence that Holder was given weekly briefings (for over a year) on the program from the National Drug Intelligence Center.
Oh wow! We’ve been waiting for this.
What will Obama do? Will he grant the request for a special prosecution? This could lead to bigger and badder things for his administration because who knows what kind of other incriminating evidence this special prosecutor will find. Fast and Furious may lead all the way up to the Oval Office.
Can Obama get around this somehow?
Plenty more of this to come….
I wanted to do a Fast and Furious update but there is VERY little to report….according to the main stream media. I found almost nothing new on the case in the media but I did find something very interesting over at Newsmax and this story just adds to the already confusing information coming out of the investigation into Project Gunrunner and the Fast and Furious debacle. According to Senator Grassley, who along with Rep. Issa, is heading up the investigation, there is new evidence that government agents illegally sold guns directly to the “underworld”. This is different than Fast and Furious where legal gun store owners sold assault weapons to shady Mexican drug cartel members so they could (supposedly) be traced back to the higher-ups in the cartel. This new evidence shows that actual government agents were the ones doing the gun dealing.
(Newsmax)“It’s hard to distinguish between the two, but evidence has come out that the orders came down from Justice that our agents were supposed to take taxpayers money, buy guns that shouldn’t have been sold, get them to the underworld,” the Iowa Republican told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “The sale was made to the underworld. It happens to be that in this particular case, the federal government made a little bit of money, but that’s not the main issue.
“The main issue is that you would think they would arrest the people that bought them illegally — no, they were told to just follow the guns — they followed the guns to a storehouse. They would not have 24-hour surveillance except for one of the agents decided to stay there six days,” Grassley said. “And I don’t know when — but anyway — a truck came along to load up the guns. They called for help to arrest them in the process of transferring the guns, but they wouldn’t send anybody to arrest them, so the guns got over — got some place, maybe over the border — and they were never traced, which was the purpose of the operation in the first place.”
I’m not sure if the “underworld” involves Mexican bad-guys but my guess would be yes. This is getting even crazier than it was 6 months ago. Of course the Justice Department (and I use the term “Justice” loosely) is completely stonewalling the investigation. They are in very hot water because the evidence shows that the orders came directly from the DOJ to the ATF and money was exchanged so that the ATF could buy a load of assault weapons and then turn around and sell them directly to the “underworld”….at a profit. How thoughtful of them to make some money off of the deal. Just like Fast and Furious, these guns were supposed to be followed back to the bigger and badder guys…and just like Fast and Furious, NO guns were followed.
Are you confused yet? I am. The muddy waters of this investigation will, one day, start to clear and the whole truth will emerge. What this truth is and how high up in this criminal Administration it goes remains to be seen.
Will Holder take the fall for Obama?
Will someone just below Holder take the fall for him?
Will the main stream media ever report any of this?
This about the 2nd Amendment and gun control. Pure and simple
I would LOVE to be a fly on the wall in the White House.
I like this little ad. The Susan B. Anthony List ( a pro-life advocacy group) is planning to hit Obama hard in key battleground states by pointing out the undying love that Obama has for funding abortions…with taxpayer dollars.
I’m sure this is just one of many ads that will point out the obvious lies that the American people are being told by this White House. Didn’t Obama sign an Executive Order that would ban any federal dollars from funding abortions? Why then did he turn around and add (as part of Obamacare) a “high risk” insurance pool for Pennsylvania that would allow those in the pool to have an abortion…courtesy of the American taxpayer?
Underhanded and crooked doesn’t even begin to describe this White House.
This photo offends me more than the president’s non-existent “jobs” bill. I don’t recall an American president who ever had an umbrella-carrier. As a woman, I of course have had an umbrella held for me by my father and then by my husband. It’s good manners for a gentleman to hold an umbrella for a lady. But when a man has someone shielding him from the elements it sends a whole different message that has nothing to do with appropriate behavior. It is the opposite. It says, “I’m important. Wait on me.” Only douchebags do it.
Case closed. Here we have P-Diddy, who by all accounts is a strong, healthy young man but has more money than is good for him and feels it necessary to hire another human being to keep pace with him and shield him from the sun. Douchebag.
Speaking of douchebags, here’s a famous one you probably have never heard of in History class. This is Neville Chamberlain, most famous for falling in love with Hitler and trying assure England Hitler had no plans to attack…as the Luftwaffe was on the way to London. Chamberlain, not surprisingly, liked a little help with his umbrella.
And who could be weirder than Michael Jackson who, while occasionally seen carrying his own umbrella, was more often seen being followed about by sychophants appeasing his fear of the sun. Poor Jackson was definitely a victim of too much money and too much fame (like most of the others who begin to feel the weight of an umbrella handle is too much to bear.)
During my search for American presidents who don’t carry their own umbrellas (of which I found none except the current guy) I found the man I expected to be a possible perpetrator actually holding an umbrella for someone else! Have we reached a point in history where we can truthfully say that Carter wasn’t the worst president in the history of this nation?
And even despicable despots have been known to carry their own umbrellas. This is a guy who probably has people assigned to pick the grit from between his toes and yet he can still stomach the laborious task of holding his own weather shield.
At this precise moment, I’m not sure who the guy walking with Gadaffi is, but I’m 99.9% sure he’s a douchebag who probably ran some third-world country into the ground.
On the other hand, the majority of the photos I found Googling presidents with umbrellas were of George Bush struggling with his own umbrella.
Maybe the offensiveness isn’t that he isn’t carrying his own umbrella but that he keeps reminding us, at a nauseating level, that he is elevated above us. Obama likes to reinforce the idea that he is someone special with his Wednesday night cocktail parties where Stevie Wonder plays in his living room and they dine on food not many of us can afford. Maybe it’s the fact that I was taught in America, anybody could be the president. You could come from nothing, know no one and simply work hard and get elected to the highest office in the land. And most of our presidents have had that sense of awe about their stay in our nation’s capitol. None of them have openly rubbed their good fortune in our faces in the way this man has or treated the wealth of the nation as their personal piggy bank. He has treated the presidency as if he has won the lottery and it is his to do with it what he wants.
Are you offended yet?
Note the umbrella holder in this photo is dressed the same as the one on the plane steps with a very similar hair cut. Could “umbrella carrier” be an actual job in this White House?
