Update: The title was changed. I was having fun but it was too confusing for readers to make the connection. A lot is at stake and it’s best to be clear and direct. This was the catchy title but not explicit enough: His Sniffer-ship Weeps Again. This Time for Eric Cantor N.o.b.o.d.y. does it better.
I find John Boehner fascinating. Okay, I’m lying, of course (sort of). He is always in the news but is never making good news for us. He said that impeachment was a scam and a White House stunt. (Nowthat’s a scam!) He has no plans to Defund Obama’s Unconstitutional Acts. He filed a pointless lawsuit which got a well-deserved snark from the President: “Sue Me!” His half-baked response to Obama’s massive 2.7 billion immigration fix didn’t garner the votes needed, so recess is postponed until a new measure is passed. When it comes to failed acts of courage in D.C., nobody does it (the same yes, but not) better than Boehner.
Here’s a little FLASHBACK from those of us who have been calling for John Boehner’s removal since 2011:
Boehner could have been replaced last year but we’re stuck with him so we may as well go down memory lane and have a little fun at his expense. Here is his address to the 113th Congress on the day his Speaker-ship was renewed: Jan 3rd, 2013. If you recall, he had resorted to bribing representatives with favors and committee positions at the last minute to keep his position as he did not have the votes to win. Here they are throughout this speech: Rino crocodile tears. Aww..
Ready? :01 Public service was never meant to be an easy living. Extraordinary challenges demand extraordinary leadership. So if you’ve come here to see your name in the lights or to pass off a political victory as some accomplishment, you’ve come to the wrong place. The door’s right behind you. Verklempt :20 – :24 If you’ve come here pause 25 humbled :26 by the opportunity to serve :27.. If you’ve come here to be the determined voice of the people .. gets choked up :35 – :36, if you’ve come here to carry the standard of leadership demanded not by our constituents but by the times then you’ve come to the right place. Sniff :46, applause :47 hanky :48 applause ends :57. There is a time for every purpose under Heaven and for the 113th Congress sniff 1:02 it is a time to rise.
It’s his party and he’ll cry if he wants to… but you should cry, too. It’s your party and he’s not only been against you, he hasn’t even acknowledged you.
You will find all sorts of weepy shot collections, Facebook pages and lists dedicated to John Boehner crying.. Included are best caption contests, videos and hundreds of jokes in thousands of pages about this man’s tears. I’m sick of it.
Good grielf!! If Sarah Palin or any woman in politics especially a Conservative one even shed one tear over the kinds of events John Boehner has been moved to tears over. Above his emotion was captured during an Irish song at a Saint Patrick’s Day Luncheon at the Capitol. If any woman on our side was caught doing this, we would not hear the end of it. It’s not that politicians SHOULD be emotionless it’s that Our GOPe is sick. John Boehner I have said before is not well. As politicians they make it all about “them”, but it’s about “us”, which is the contrast between the GOPe style of governing and the ONE that is to come.
Notice Boehner never thanks the Tea Party, nor the woman behind the surge that took him to the power which he has squandered, but that’s okay.. we’ll tweak what he said earlier and use his own words for inspiration:
There is a time for every purpose under Heaven and for US, We-the-People (no sniffing – weeping- no hanky) it is a time to rise.
Radical anti-American Marxists Barack Obama and Lisa Jackson enjoying a laugh as they conspire to destroy America as we know it.
By Gary P Jackson
At this point, anyone who thinks all of this corruption didn’t originate from the Oval Office in crazy, plain and simple.
Yesterday Andy at Ace of Spades HQ reported on yet another case of an agency staffed by Obama radicals attacking Conservatives. It seems the EPA, under the direction of Communist radical Lisa Jackson [no relation] was in the habit of waving certain fees for “friendlies” like the con artists in the so-called “green” sector, while assessing fees on Conservative groups for the same services.
The EPA has long been the enemy of the American people, with it’s war on energy, and prosperity, and this is yet another assault Liberty and Freedom.
It takes an evil, sick, and twisted mind to do that to one’s fellow man.
It should be noted, that after more than four years of attacking the American people, and pushing her radical anti-American agenda, Lisa Jackson recently stepped down. All of the attacks on Conservatives reported here occurred on her watch.
This is what you get when allow radicals to take hold in government, and few are more radical than Jackson, or for that matter, Obama himself.
As Predicted, A New Obama Adminstration Scandal Before Noon
Me, 6:55am: “New Obama administration scandal by noon? I’ll take the under.”
Conservative groups seeking information from the Environmental Protection Agency have been routinely hindered by fees normally waived for media and watchdog groups, while fees for more than 90 percent of requests from green groups were waived, according to requests reviewed by the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
I have no idea where these low-level employees could have gotten the idea that it’s okay to treat people differently based on their political leanings.
Andy goes to quote Speaker John Boehner, responding to Barack Obama’s referring to the American people as his enemies:
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a president in the White House who referred to Americans who disagree with him as ‘our enemies.’ Think about that. He actually used that word.
When Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush used the word ‘enemy,’ they reserved it for global terrorists and foreign dictators — enemies of the United States. Enemies of freedom. Enemies of our country.
Today, sadly, we have president who uses the word ‘enemy‘ for fellow Americans — fellow citizens. He uses it for people who disagree with his agenda of bigger government — people speaking out for a smaller, more accountable government that respects freedom and allows small businesses to create jobs.
Mr. President, there’s a word for people who have the audacity to speak up in defense of freedom, the Constitution, and the values of limited government that made our country great. We don’t call them ‘enemies.’ We call them ‘patriots.‘
I don’t know what else to add, except that justice must prevail here. Yes, Obama is at the bottom of all of this. He has set the example for his minions to follow.
America simply cannot survive with the poor quality of individuals that currently occupy power in Washington. And yes, I am talking about members of both political parties. Obama and his henchmen have only been able to get away with their treachery for so long because what passes for “leadership” in the GOP, is impotent and useless.
You know who Max Baucus is, he’s one of the lying crapweasels who helped craft ObamaCare, then recently called this monstrous legislation a “train wreck,” while announcing his retirement. The little weasel doesn’t want to be around to answer for his crimes against humanity when people show up in Washington with torches and pitchforks after ObamaCare takes hold!!
Baucus is also one of the corrupt democrats who is supposedly “leading the investigation” into the IRS scandal targeting Tea Party groups, Jewish groups that support Israel, and Conservatives in general.
There’s a real problem with this though. It seems in 2010, around the time the IRS started assaulting Conservatives, Senator Baucus used his powerful office to urge the IRS to do that very thing: Start attacking Conservatives.
That Baucus is being allowed to investigate his own crimes, and cover his tracks, is just too fantastic to comprehend.
From Pat Dollard:
Democratic Montana senator Max Baucus is leading an investigation into why the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative nonprofit groups for extra scrutiny despite the fact that Baucus once wrote a letter urging the IRS to do exactly that.
Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, will head the committee’s investigation into the IRS, which apologized Friday for targeting groups with the terms “Tea Party” and “Patriot” in their titles for extra scrutiny of their nonprofit status as early as 2011.
However, Baucus once wrote a letter requesting that the IRS engage in that very conduct.
“With hundreds of millions of dollars being spent in election contests by tax-exempt entities, it is time to take a fresh look at current practices and how they comport with the Internal Revenue Code’s rules for nonprofits,” Baucus wrote in the letter.
“I request that you and your agency survey major 501(c)(4), (c)(5) and (c)(6) organizations involved in political campaign activity to examine whether they are operated for the organization’s intended tax exempt purpose and to ensure that political campaign activity is not the organization’s primary activity,” Baucus wrote in the letter.
“The tax exemption given to non-profit organizations comes with a responsibility to serve the public interest and Congress has an obligation to exercise the vigorous oversight necessary to ensure they do,” Baucus said in a 2010 statement accompanying his letter.
Though Baucus identified 501 (c) (5) groups — or labor unions — as worthy of investigation, the only organizations cited in his request were conservative, pro-Republican groups.
Baucus specifically named Americans for Job Security, which is described as a “pro-Republican organization,” as a specific target for the IRS to investigate.
Crossroads GPS, co-founded by Karl Rove, and American Action Network, chaired by former Republican senator Norm Coleman, were also cited in press coverage related to Baucus’ letter as pro-Republican groups helping to elect GOP congressional candidates in 2010.
Those organizations appeared in a September 16, 2010 TIME article by writer Michael Crowley titled, “The New GOP Money Stampede.” Baucus cited that piece in his letter to the IRS.
What this tends to support is the notion that all democrats in power do not respect the Constitution, or the American people. This tends to prove that no democrat is above using Nazi like tactics in order to destroy their opponents. This evil has become institutionalized in our government, and to some extent, tolerated. Washington is a sewer and needs to be completely cleaned out from top to bottom.
With Baucus retiring I doubt anything whatsoever will happen to him, and he will draw his spectacular pension for the rest of his sorry life.
Can you even imagine the uproar had a Republican Senator pulled a stunt like this?
In a perfect world, tar and feathers would be the most cherished commodities in America, with torches and pitchforks running a close second!
At this point, it’s no secret that Barack Obama is not allowing the crisis in the Gulf of Mexico to “go to waste.” Obama and his cronies see this as an opportunity to seize more control over the American people, and fatten up their wallets considerably by passing a cap and tax scheme.
An operative of mine passed me an email that is being sent out by Obama’s permanent campaign website Organizing for America:
The BP oil spill in the Gulf Coast is the worst environmental disaster of its kind in our nation’s history. I am returning to the region today to review our efforts and meet with families and business owners affected by the catastrophe.
We are working to hold BP accountable for the damage to the lands and the livelihoods of the Gulf Coast, and we are taking strong precautions to make certain a spill like this never happens again.
But our work will not end with this crisis. That’s one of the reasons why last week I invited lawmakers from both parties to join me at the White House to discuss what it will take to move forward on legislation to promote a new economy powered by green jobs, combat climate change, and end our dependence on foreign oil.
Today, we consume more than 20 percent of the world’s oil, but have less than two percent of the world’s oil reserves. Beyond the risks inherent in drilling four miles beneath the surface of the Earth, our dependence on oil means that we will continue to send billions of dollars of our hard-earned wealth to other countries every month — including many in dangerous and unstable regions.
In other words, our continued dependence on fossil fuels will jeopardize our national security. It will smother our planet. And it will continue to put our economy and our environment at risk. We cannot delay any longer, and that is why I am asking for your help.
Please stand with me today in backing clean energy. Adding your name will help Organizing for America create a powerful, public display of support for making this change happen
The time has come, once and for all, for this nation to fully embrace a new future. That means continuing our unprecedented effort to make everything — from our homes and businesses to our cars and trucks — more energy-efficient. It means rolling back billions of dollars of tax breaks to oil companies so we can prioritize investments in clean energy research and development.
Many businesses support this agenda because shifting to clean energy creates opportunities for entrepreneurship. This is how we will reinvent our economy — and create new companies and new jobs all across the country.
There will be transition costs and a time of adjustment. But if we refuse to heed the warnings from the disaster in the Gulf — we will have missed our best chance to seize the clean-energy future we know America needs to thrive in the years and decades to come.
The House of Representatives has already passed a comprehensive energy and climate bill, and there is currently a plan in the Senate — a plan that was developed with ideas from Democrats and Republicans — that would achieve the same goal. But this is an issue that Washington has long ignored in favor of protecting the status quo.
So I’m asking for your help today to show that the American people are ready for a clean-energy future.
Of course this is all a load of bull. The massive, draconian legislation Obama and his Marxist controlled Congress are pushing, has absolutely nothing to do with clean energy, but every thing to do with grabbing more power, and implementing a cap and tax scheme that will make Obama, and his cronies, TENS of TRILLIONS of DOLLARS richer in the years to come.
BTW, just how creepy is it that Obama is running a permanent political campaign, and has a symbol for himself. Do I even need to remind people who the last person was that had such a thing, and how that turned out?
While Obama is singly handedly destroying the American oil industry, and placing moratoriums on any exploration, his puppet master, George Soros, is looking to make billions with his Brazilian oil company, Petrobas.
You can read Obama’s Boss George Soros Ready To Profit From Oil Disaster, A Crime Inc. Update, and learn the whole story here.
Glenn Beck devoted his program yesterday to discussing the way the Obama regime looks to use the gulf oil spill for it’s own benefit, and the further enslavement of the American people:
If you are not familiar with Crime Inc., Obama’s circle of crooks who look to become wealthy beyond all dreams, you can familiarize yourself by reading here and here.
We are up for the fight of our life. If the Obama regime somehow passes this “clean energy” legislation, it’s all over. This will destroy America’s economy, and the nation itself. Obama and his Congress must be stopped and must be stopped now.
Once stopped, The American people must demand that Obama, and all of the members of Crime Inc., be investigated, and the proper actions taken. Obama is a criminal, and a thug. This is a proven fact. He must be impeached, and upon conviction, sent to prison, along with other Crime Inc. members. Justice demands it.
Call you Senators and Congressmen NOW and demand this nonsense come to a halt immediately, and for investigations to start. These Chicago Gangland tactics must stop. This is America, not some banana republic
In the latest episode of the growing Crime Inc. story, we learn that, Barack Obama’s puppet master, former Nazi sympathizer George Soros, is about to profit handsomely off the disaster in the gulf.
We’ve written for around a year that Obama and Soros have partnered up to manipulate the oil business for fun and profit. Last year, Obama “loaned” Brazil $10 billion tax payer dollars, which in turn went to Brazilian oil giant, Petrobas. As we all know, just three days before Obama was so generous with OUR money, Soros bought controlling interest in Petrobas, which is now his largest holding.
We’ve written extensively about this, and Sarah Palin has also called Obama out on numerous occasions. There’s a good overview that you can read here.
At the time, writing for Newsmax, Ralph Hostetter offered this:
Petrobras is exploring and developing what has been described as the “huge offshore discovery” of Brazil’s Tupi field in Santo Basin near Rio de Janero. According to reports, the site could yield as much as 1 million barrels of oil per day.
The Soros Fund Management LLC holds a stake in Petrobras in the amount of $900 million as of Dec. 31, 2009.
The Soros Fund is headed by U.S. naturalized-citizen George Soros, a multi-billionaire who describes himself simply as an investor.
George Soros’ principal investments are in oil; one in particular is Petrobras, the Brazilian-owned company. This happens to be the largest investment in the Soros portfolio at the present time.
Now that word is out that the facilities of the U.S. Export-Import Bank SA is offering guarantees for loans to Brazil’s state-owned oil company Petrobras, U.S. citizens are beginning to complain.
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, a vocal proponent of offshore drilling, says, “So why is it that during these tough times, when we have great needs at home, the Obama White House is prepared to send more than $2 billion of your hard-earned tax dollars to Brazil so that the nation’s state-owned oil company Petrobras can drill offshore and create jobs developing its own resources?”
George Soros is becoming a central figure in American politics. He is using his billions of dollars and his influence in the energy field to bring about what he identifies as a “regime change” for America, an idea he has promoted for many years. He has called for such a change since the days of George W. Bush.
Soros planned at one point to oust George W. Bush during the president’s reelection campaign of 2004. He spent $25 million in the campaign to elect John Kerry. He stated at the time, defeating President Bush “is the central focus of my life . . . a matter of life and death.” America under Bush, he said, is a danger to the world “and I am willing to put my money where my mouth is.”
To George Soros, regime change means the elimination of the present governing system, in this case, the democratic republic of the United States. That would mean there would be no political parties, no elections, but in place of the American system, he would introduce his Shadow Party.
George Soros, with the help of his brain child, Moveon.org, has created his Shadow Party which awaits his call for the regime change for America.
Soros has had considerable experience in bringing about “regime change” in Europe. In particular, he is given credit for raising of funds in 1989 for a regime change in the Czech Republic when Vaclav Havel was brought to power. He helped engineer “regime changes” in Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia and Yugoslavia.
At the present time, the U.S. dollar is under the most severe international pressure in its history. The U.S. government has exposed itself by creating stimulus packages and issuing currency amounting to trillions of dollars. This is exactly the situation that spoilers such as George Soros have been looking for.
This is a similar scenario which George Soros found in Great Britain in 1992 when he made his first billion by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets. He became known as “the man who broke the Bank of England.” It was reported that “he broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically in comparative worth almost overnight.”
Change has been the watchword of the Obama Administration. One would hope that the emphasis for change does not extend to such a radical movement as a regime change. A regime change would spell the end of America’s democratic republic.
George Soros is pure evil, and a direct threat to the sovereignty of the United States. He owns the Marxist-democrat party outright, and funds hundreds of groups that do their bidding, on his behalf. He is the one pulling all of the strings on Obama. He is Obama’s puppet master.
Haven’t you ever wondered why Obama and his crew are so eager to handcuff the American energy industry? Many well meaning people fall into the trap of thinking it’s because Obama cares about the environment, and wants to see “green” energy development. Nothing could be further from the truth. The only thing “green” Obama and his cronies care about are those little green pieces of paper with dead presidents on the front.
Tammy Bruce has the latest on all of this:
Obama Boss George Soros Ready To Profit From Oil Disaster
Interestingly, it seems the more trouble we have, the better it is for Soros. Last year, Soros noted he was “having a very good crisis” having bet against the United States and profiting from her economic downturn.
Now we learn Soros is set to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Gulf oil catastrophe. With Obama’s ‘moratorium’ and the Obama Admin’s general hostility to drilling, it’s reported many oil companies have already looked into with Brazil regarding a move those shores. And what is Soros principally invested in right now? Petrobras, the Brazilian state oil company.
Reuters is reporting that Brazil stands to benefit from the BP oil spill catastrophe as the US moratorium makes more rigs available for other countries.
Even as an ecological catastrophe makes the future of U.S. offshore drilling less certain, Brazil is plowing ahead with a $220 billion five-year plan to tap oil fields even deeper than BP’s ill-fated Gulf well, which is still leaking crude.
It’s estimated that thirty five rigs are now sitting idle in the Gulf of Mexico. Brazil is already getting inquiries from companies wanting to move their rigs there. Brazil’s state oil company, Petrobras already produces about a fourth of the world’s deep water oil…
The shortage of rigs could help Brazil become a major oil exporter.
What an amazing stroke of good fortune for Obama’s boss, unrepentant Nazi collaborator, George Soros! Soros is also invested in offshore oil drilling in Brazil, assisted by the American taxpayers.
George Soros’ principal investments are in oil; one in particular is Petrobras, the Brazilian-owned company. This happens to be the largest investment in the Soros portfolio at the present time.
Soros also owns quite a lot of real estate in Brazil. Soros’ Adecoagro, which invests in renewable energy, owns or leases about 840,000 acres of farmland in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay growing coffee, soybeans and other commodities. Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Bunge Ltd. Are also expanding into ethanol in Brazil.
When you get to boss the president around, you never have to let a good crisis go to waste.
Sweetness and Light is reporting that Petrobas is working on one of the largest stock sales in history to be able to gear up, and take full advantage of the gulf disaster, and Obama’s manipulations on their behalf. You can read all about it here.
The Obama regime is ready to use the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico to not only enrichen his pal George Soros, but to shove “climate change” legislation down America’s throat, that includes cap and tax, which will make Obama and his cronies wealthy beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.
Before Obama is allowed to do anything more, or any legislation is discussed, we must demand that a special prosecutor be appointed, and this entire affair looked into. Obama, Soros, and every member of Crime Inc, including Al Gore, Maurice Strong, and so on, need to be investigated to the fullest. These Chicago Gangland style dealings, that are going on, are simply unacceptable.
This entire bunch needs to be looking at an extended stay in a nice federal prison.
I know there are some that think that Obama commits treason just by showing up to work. Yes, there are more than a few eligibility questions, that sadly, will never be resolved, thanks to a compliant media, and the most corrupt Congress in our nation’s history.
Frankly, I see other acts that border on treason such as the unprecedented power grab that Obama and the corrupt democrat/communist Congress are attempting to engineer with “health care reform.” We’ve discussed at length the unconstitutionality of this entire exercise, as well how it effectively renders our Constitution null and void.
I’ve also written at length about the real agenda behind the global warming scam, and how the end game is complete destruction of not only the United States, and the capitalistic system, but literally all of mankind. For those that read the quotes from the various leaders of the global warming movement, and learned of their utter contempt for the United States and humanity itself, it is both shocking and frightening that these people are allowed to roam among us. They all belong in insane asylums!
Certainly, knowing all of this, for Obama to embrace the global warming scam full bore, could easily constitute treason.
But with all of that said, we have an even more serious charge that should end the Obama presidency immediately and see him, and all involved charged with high treason and dealt with in the proper manner, if true.
We all know how bad Obama and his corrupt Congress want to pass “heath care reform.” It will represent the final blow to the republic and the republican form of government. If ObamaCare passes, it will void the Constitution and do away with states rights. It will set up a central command and control government, a communist state that the far left has dreamed of since FDR’s time. (Don’t forget, Roosevelt affectionately referred to Stalin as “Uncle Joe.”)
ObamaCare will take control of almost all activities that are generally controlled by cities and states and place it in the hands of unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats. ObamaCare is the Holy Grail to the far left, and highly corrupt democrat/communists. They have tried to do this for over 60 years. It’s been an obsession for them.
There is a bit of a silver lining though. Barack Obama, who has never run anything as complicated as a lemonade stand, is an incredibly inept CEO. There’s a reason why we generally elect Governors, not Senators, as President. One must have executive experience to get things done. Obama never even took time to learn the job of Senator before he abandoned that job in order to satisfy his lust for wealth and power as President.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is right up there with Obama on the competency scale. So what we have is a situation that has gone from SNAFU, “Situation Normal, All Fouled Up” to FUBAR, “Fouled Up Beyond All Recognition.”
As much as the democrat/communists want to blame the GOP for this, Republicans are irrelevant. Democrat/communists have a solid majority in the House, and a filibuster proof majority in the Senate. In other words, the democrat/communists have total control of government, and there are absolutely no checks and balances. They only saving grace is these are some truly dumb people. Not many marketable skills in that party.
So…..there is a civil war going on. You have a few level headed people that see this boondoggle for what it is, some pro-life democrats/communists, a truly rare bird, and then you have the far left, the base. As radical as this health care fiasco is, it doesn’t go far enough for the moonbats.
At first, the back room deals were all about payoffs. Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana was given $300 million, in what has been called “The Louisiana Purchase,” just for her vote on cloture. Others have been promised huge sums of tax payer monies for pet projects. But now we are past all of that. As hard as it is to believe, there are a handful of democrat/communists that have some integrity. They can’t be bought off.
We have seen how Senator Joe Lieberman and his wife have been threatened. It’s simply unconscionable, but pretty much what you expect from a bunch of street thug “”community organizers” from Chicago.
With that said, as vile, and possibly illegal, all of the machinations have been so far, they pale in comparison to what is going on with Senator Bill Nelson of Nebraska. Nelson is one of the few truly moderate members of the radical party. A holdover from the old Bob Bullock, Scoop Jackson wing of the party. Nelson has more than a few issues with ObamaCare, such as tax payer funded abortions, and mandated compliance. Also he has his state Governor, his constituents, and colleagues demanding he vote no. So far, Nelson is listening to the will of the people.
So just how desperate is Obama to pass this monstrosity into law? Strong enough to commit treason, evidently.
Nebraska is home to Offutt Air Force Base, home to the US Strategic Command, the successor to the old Cold War US Strategic Air Command that used to keep B-52 bombers, loaded with nuclear weapons, flying 24/7 within minutes of Soviet air space as a deterrent against an attack.
Offutt is still one of our most strategic bases. It’s location, in the center of the nation, is very strategic. This is where President Bush had wanted to make his address to the nation on 9/11, before it was decided he would go back to the White House, and it was the site of the initial strategy sessions after the terrorist attacks took place that morning.
So craven is Barack Obama, so desperate is he to pass this unconstitutional “health care reform,” that he has crossed the line. Obama is quite willing to risk national security to achieve his goal of a communist state.
According to Michael Goldfarb at the Weekly Standard, Obama has threatened to close Ottuff, out of spite, should Senator Nelson not buckle under to the pressure and go along with this massive unconstitutional power grab disguised as “heath care reform.”
While the Democrats appease Senator Lieberman, they still have to worry about other recalcitrant Democrats including Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson. Though Lieberman has been out front in the fight against the public option and the Medicare buy-in, Nelson was critical of both. Now that those provisions appear to have been stripped from the bill, Lieberman may get on board, but Nelson’s demand that taxpayer money not be used to fund abortion has still not been met. According to a Senate aide, the White House is now threatening to put Nebraska’s Offutt Air Force Base on the BRAC list if Nelson doesn’t fall into line.
Offutt Air Force Base employs some 10,000 military and federal employees in Southeastern Nebraska. As our source put it, this is a “naked effort by Rahm Emanuel and the White House to extort Nelson’s vote.” They are “hreatening to close a base vital to national security for what?” asked the Senate staffer.
Indeed, Offutt is the headquarters for US Strategic Command, the successor to Strategic Air Command, and not by accident. STRATCOM was located in the middle of the country for strategic reasons. Its closure would be a massive blow to the economy of the state of Nebraska, but it would also be another example of this administration playing politics with our national security.
Matt Lewis tweeted earlier, presumable from a source independent of Goldfarb’s, that Nelson has been both pressured, and offered a blank check! You can read that here.
Forget the fact that this is one of our most strategic military bases in the nation, vital for national security, closing Offutt would simply devastate the economy of the surrounding area. Having lived in the shadow of Ft Hood, Texas most of my life, I can tell you that simple downsizing can all but destroy local economies, shutting the base would be catastrophic. And since Obama hasn’t created net job one since he has been in office, it would devastate those effected by the closure, adding to those without work, or the prospect of work.
With that said, this isn’t just about jobs lost. This would be a major blow to our national security at a time we are fighting two wars and there is a growing list of aggressor nations who are only waiting to strike a vulnerable United States and her allies.
Obama is already doing things to make America less safe. From insanely restrictive rules of engagement on the battlefield, to coddling terrorists. From bringing the confessed 9/11 planners, who have already asked to be put to death, to New York for a show trial, something that will give these animals a world wide soapbox to spew their hatred for America and recruit thousands to their cause, to moving other Gitmo detainees to Illinois. Everything Obama is doing endangers America, and is at the very least suspect, and reason to make sure he is a one term President.
In fact, I imagine if one really looked into the Illinois prison deal, there is some serious money changing hands, especially since most of the facility will have to be brought up to spec, using union thugs from the SEIU, no doubt. Corruption is the lifeblood of Chicago politics. One can only imagine the money changing hands on this deal. This will most likely be Obama’s retirement package when he’s forced out of office.
I would think sharp investigators could come up with information that would demand Articles of Impeachment be drawn up by Congress, if only someone cared. But as bad as it is, all of this pales in comparison to even threatening to close Offutt.
In the private world, extortion lands you in prison. In Washington, with this President, it’s simply the way they do business. The Chicago way.
A group of 20 Republican Senators have sent a letter to democrat/communist Senator Carl Levin of Michigan, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and John McCain, the leading Republican on the Committee, the text of which is below:
It has been reported that the Obama Administration threatened the closure of a U.S. military installation for political purposes, thereby bringing into question the integrity of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process. The BRAC process was established to remove political influence so that the decision to close or not to close a military installation could be based upon military utility.
Specifically, various media reports have stated that the Obama Administration would put Offutt AFB in southeastern Nebraska on a future BRAC list because of a vote on healthcare reform. While we recognize the importance of Offutt AFB as the headquarters of U.S. Strategic Command and the approximately 10,000 individuals that work there, we feel that this installation should remain open or be closed on its own merits.
Therefore, we respectfully ask that a hearing be held as to whether the BRAC process has been compromised. We do not want to see the name of a base from our state on a BRAC list and think it has been put there to settle partisan scores. We also do not want our bases to be more vulnerable to closure because political arm-twisting has taken another installation off the table. National security not partisanship should determine how BRAC decisions are made.
A tad less forceful than I would have written, but a solid effort.
Here is the list of Republican Senators who signed onto this letter:
The Republicans signing the letter were Sens. John Ensign of Nevada, Jim DeMint of South Carolina, John Thune of South Dakota, Jim Bunning of Kentucky, Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker of Tennessee, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Kit Bond of Missouri, Michael Enzi of Wyoming, George LeMieux of Florida, Pat Roberts of Kansas, David Vitter of Louisiana, Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker of Mississipi, John Cornyn of Texas, Judd Gregg of New Hampshire, Mike Johanns of Nebraska, Bob Bennett of Utah, Johnny Isakson of Georgia and Chuck Grassley of Iowa.
Fellow Texans should note that Senator and gubernatorial candidate Kay Bailey Hutchinson is conspicuous by her absence from this group.
For their part, both the White House and Senator Nelson are denying any such threat ever existed. Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director had this to say:
This is nothing but a cynical, crass political game that is designed to maintain the status quo. Let’s be clear: the people spreading these falsehoods think nothing is wrong with a system under which families and businesses continue to bear the brunt of skyrocketing costs, insurance companies are allowed to discriminate and drop at will, and thousands of Americans lose their coverage every single day.
Isn’t it amazing how, in the face of being charged with high treason, the White House has their ridiculous talking points flying to the bitter end! I’m surprised Pfeiffer didn’t end by reminding us that all of this is for “the children!”
When I look at these people and hear them speak all I see is a bad used car salesman, plaid pants, white shoes, white belt, bad comb over, and all.
Obviously, this must be looked into. Hell, pretty much ever action Obama and Congress have taken since January needs to be gone over and reviewed! However, if this is indeed true, if Obama indeed offered to put our nation’s security in peril over his unconstitutional “health care” bill. He should be removed from office and charged with treason immediately, along with all of those who participated in and facilitated these actions.
It’s very easy to dismiss Obama as an inexperienced buffoon, who is simply too inept to govern, and while that may be true, it may also be by design. Nothing like a little misdirection to keep the public distracted while the real damage is being done.
As a citizen of the United States it is your duty to demand satisfaction on this matter. Congress, and the President, no matter what they may think, work for you. They are your employees. Obviously mass firings are coming in 2010, and a lot of new hires will be taking their places, but in the meantime, you must demand action. You must demand action from your Senators and from your Congressmen. You must also demand the media take a serious interest in this and actually investigate.
America is in crisis. Our government has been taken over by radicals who wish to destroy our American way of life. We must use any means necessary to stop this from happening. We must hold these evil men and women accountable.
America is on the brink of destruction from within. As we have warned all year, things will only get worse, unless you get involved.
Let’s all meet Kevin Jennings. His official title is: Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education. Another unelected, unvetted, unaccountable “Czar” in the Barack Obama regime.
Now we knew Obama had surrounded himself with some of the most insane, out of the mainstream crazies he could round up. There’s Dr Death, Ezekiel Emanuel, Rahm Emanuel’s brother, who Sarah Palin made famous when she called out Obama on his “death panels.” Dr Death, who makes Joseph Mengele look reasonable, has written extensively on how certain folks don’t “deserve ” health care, and set up the very blue print for Obama’s “death panels.”
Then there is Cass Sunstein who is Obama’s regulatory Czar. This refugee from the asylum, who has the power to regulate, without congressional approval or input, pretty much every facet of your life, wants to ban hunting, and thinks animals should be able to have human lawyers, and be able to sue humans in court!
John Holdren, Obama’s science Czar, believes the United States Constitution would allow the government to force women to have abortions for “population control” and has advocated putting sterilants in the nation’s water supply. (As long as it doesn’t harm animals!)
And who could forget the recently departed, racist, communist, 9/11 truther, and all around nutbag Van Jones, Obama’s failed “Green Jobs Czar!”
It’s pretty easy to understand why Obama, who has appointed almost 40 people of this sort of caliber, quality, and level of insanity, used this method of appointing Czars to bypass Article II Section 2 of the United States Constitution. The part about the President needing the advice and consent of the Senate on key appointments, treaties and other important decisions. Most of these crazies would never even be offered a Senate hearing, let alone pass one.
Of course, as incredible as it seems, Cass Sunstein was indeed confirmed by the Senate along party lines. Only democrat/communists voted for him.
But you know, of all of the loons and subversives Barack Obama has surrounded himself with, no one made me physically ill until I learned about this guy, Kevin Jennings.
Jennings, by the way, is a Harvard graduate, shocker, and the founder and executive director of the national Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN),
Jennings is someone, like unrepentant, murdering domestic terrorist William Ayers, who has chosen education as the preferred method for infecting our children with Marxist ideals, and undermining the morality of the nation.
One can successfully argue homosexuality’s case, among consenting adults, but there is no excuse, nor should there be any tolerance of any sort for pedophilia, whether it be homosexual or heterosexual. The theft of youth and innocence by an adult is one of the most heinous crimes that can be committed against a child. It destroys their life. Only murder is worse. And only barely worse.
Kevin Jennings, President Obama’s Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education, is in hot water this week for having failed to report that a 15-year-old sophomore student in his school had told him of having sex with an older man.
But failure to report what appeared to be a case of statuatory rape of a child may be the least of Jennings’ worries. Lori Roman of Regular Folks United points to statements by Jennings a decade or more ago when he praised Harry Hay of the North American Association for Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), which promotes the legalization of sexual abuse of young boys by older men.
Roman provides damning details and links here. She also notes that Jennings wrote the forward “to a book called Queering Elementary Education. And another fellow you may have heard of wrote one of the endorsements on the book jacket—Bill Ayers.” Ayers, of course, is the Weather Underground bomber from the 1960s who is just an “acquaintance” of Obama.
Every presidential administration ends up with scandals inspired by controversial appointees, but typically those tend to revolve around financial improprieties, conflicts of interest, or some other form of white-collar misconduct. For Obama, the scandals seem to be developing in a pattern of disclosures revolving around radical left ideology that raises questions about their fitness for any job in government.
And that in turn raises the inevitable question: Is nobody minding the White House personnel store?
Let’s see, on top of not reporting the homosexual rape of a child, this guy, along with Barack Obama’s BFF, terrorist William Ayers, wrote additions to a book promoting pedophilia in ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!
Our boy Ayers sure gets around on these books. As we all know, it has been discovered that Ayers was the ghostwriter of Barack Obama’s first book: “Dreams From My Father.” But of course, Obama and Ayers, despite working on several “education foundations” and funneling $100 million to groups like ACORN for “education,” have “never met” and Ayers is “just a guy in the neighborhood.”
With Obama’s track record of “honesty,” well, let’s just say we all know Ayers was a lot more to Obama than just “some guy.”
But, let’s get back to this Kevin Jennings pervert.
Tipscott references Lori Roman in his article. I must warn you, there is some pretty graphic stuff described at her website. Let’s just say it goes into details described in the book “Queering Elementary Education.” This however, really should be read, just so you can understand just how sick and vile all of these people truly are. But be warned “techniques” are described! You can read more here.
We all know the left wing in America, and really the world, have been trying to sexualize our children for decades. It’s a Marxist/communist method of seizing power. The destruction of a nation’s morality, and the co-option of the children is key to destroying society. And I think we have had our eyes opened very wide since January 20, 2009 and come to realize that Barack Obama and his group of nerdowells absolutely mean to destroy American society. Obama and his group, which is infected with 1960’s Marxist retreads, are looking to tear down society in ways they couldn’t in the 1960’s when they were trying to blow it up!
Here’s Barack Obama himself advocating teaching sex ed to kindergartners :
It’s interesting that Barack Obama is speaking at Planned Parenthood, a group founded by noted proponent of eugenics, and Ku Klux Klan associate Margaret Sanger. As you know, Planned Parenthood was founded by early “progressives” to help eliminate the “Negro problem” and weed out other “undesirables.” It was Sanger’s work, and the work of other early 20th century “progressives” that would so inspire Adolf Hitler and Joseph Mengele as they experimented with eugenics and eventually helped Hitler rationalize, to himself, the Holocaust.
Here is an account, from Sanger’s book, on the first of what would be many speeches given to groups of Klan women:
Here is a discussion of Sanger’s “Negro Project” which discusses the extermination of the black race. Sanger called them “human weeds.”
This just shows you the depths of depravity that “progressives” have had throughout history, and the extreme lengths “progressives” will go to get their message heard.
This sort of thing isn’t confined to America though. Sadly “progressives,” Marxists, and communists around the world push this sort of thing. Read any comprehensive book on communist techniques for coming into power, and it will talk extensively about breaking down a society’s moral fiber, and sexualizing children.
TORONTO, Ontario, September 8, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Lianne George of Maclean’s magazine has penned a piece published this week on a new trend in schools’ sexual education offerings to focus on the pleasure of sex. Her article highlights the work of Toronto’s Carlyle Jansen, the owner of a ‘sex shop’ for women, Good For Her, who has launched a new not-for-profit organization devoted to offering free, “pleasure-based” sex workshops to schools and other groups in the area.
Jansen has long offered pleasure-based workshops through her store, but, according to George, a year and a half ago Jansen started getting calls from local high school teachers who wanted her to come and offer sex-ed to their classes. Since then, Jansen guesses that she has spoken to about 12 or 15 classes.
“Kids are taught to death about all the bad things that can happen to them if they have sex,” Jansen told George. “They’ve said, ‘We’ve heard about sexually transmitted infections, we know you can get pregnant, but we want to know about pleasure and we want to know about healthy relationships.'”
In the classes, she talks to teens about whatever they would like to know, from masturbation to oral sex to sex toys (examples of which she brings to the classroom in case teens ask). She also teaches the kids about the sexual ‘pleasure centres’ using items depicting sexual organs.
Now, Jansen has helped launch the Sexual Health Education Pleasure Project (SHEPP) in the Greater Toronto Area, whose mission is “to provide free, pleasure-based sexual health education focused mainly on marginalized communities including youth, people of colour, women, queer and trans communities.” Course topic titles include “Negotiating what you want – in and out of the bedroom,” and “Cool, safe, and hot sex.”
A topic entitled “Re-visioning ‘pro-choice'” is also on the list, with the description: “Not just about abortion any more. Know your rights!” The group explains their vision of ‘pro-choice’ further on a page entitled ‘What We Believe In’. While the phrase is certainly used to designate openness to abortion, the groups sees it as including a broader range of sexual choices, including the freedom to exercise sexual license and the freedom to marry whomever one chooses.
Let’s face it, sex is very pleasurable, and what better way to lure young folks away from their parents influence! The idea, of course, IS to take the children away from their parents influence, so they can be indoctrinated in the agenda of the state at a very young age.
Ever see the advertisements for “City Year” on television? One guess which famous “community organizer” is behind that deal!
This is the end game, the communists want your children. They want to break down the family, the parental unit. It’s hard to indoctrinate children if they have a strong family life. A family headed by parents with traditional American values.
This has been an ongoing thing in our country for decades. Older Americans, those born in the early 1960’s, or before have seen a rapid decline of morality in the last 40 years. Again, this is by design. It’s the communist and “progressive’s” favorite tool.
I’m not a prude. I honestly do not care what adults do in private. As long as everyone is consenting, and of age, none of my business. But the sexualization of children is a whole different situation.
The rape of children is even more despicable. It ruins the children’s lives, and more times than not, if they have children, their children are effected somehow by this as well. This is, in many ways, worse than death, worse than murder. The pedophile has murdered the kid’s soul.
And yet, the progressives are OK with it. In fact, look at the latest deal with thirty year fugitive from justice, Roman Polanski.
Thirty years ago, Roman Polanski, a famous film maker, gave a thirteen year old girl dangerous drugs and raped her in the most violent of ways. Now Polanski admitted this, and was convicted, but skipped the country before being sentenced, which was done in absentia.
Instead of rotting in prison, and having a new best friend named Bubba, Polanski was able to use his considerable fame and wealth to live it up all over Europe. Well, that all came to an end when he was recently arrested in Switzerland. Of course, Polanski is fighting extradition.
Just as predictable, “progressives” are quick to excuse Roman for his sins. It wasn’t his fault, it was out of his control. You see, Polanski lost both of his parents in WWII Polish concentration camps. And Roman was married to the beautiful and pregnant actress Sharon Tate who was brutally murdered by the Charles Manson Family on that fateful California night. So, my goodness, how could we EVER go and blame him for the drugging and violent rape of a thirteen year old girl? His was perfectly normal behavior given the circumstances, right?
Of course not!
Now to be fair, Andrew Breitbart, the media mogul who brought you all of the great ACORN “hooker and pimp” educational films, has a counter-petition over at his Big Hollywood website for conservatives in Hollywood. You’ll also know, and appreciate some of the names on this list as well.
The bottom line though is this: “Progressives,” communists, liberals, left wingers, what ever you want to call these people, see no problem with the sexualization of our children. Fringe groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) frequently come to the aid of radical groups like NAMBLA, trying to legalize this deplorable behavior.
Men like murdering terrorist William Ayers, who has “rehabilitated” himself, and is now considered a revered and respected educational scholar, are part of this cabal. Ayers has put down his bombs to teach other teachers, and to write books that teachers use as learning and teaching tools, in an effort to infect the nation’s children with the Marxist agenda. And thanks to Barack Obama, a “man” like Kevin Jennings has carte blanche to infect your children with his insane view of a world where it is OK to for grown men to rape young boys and not only escape prison, but be celebrated for their bravado!
Of course, this seriously calls into question Barack Obama’s judgment, or lack there of.
We have taken to calling for Barack Obama to step down, resign. If he hasn’t done this by the 2010 elections, we will actively petition the new, Conservative Congress, to impeach and remove him as unfit to lead.
In the past few weeks we have wrote about Obama turning off the water to the most productive farm land in America, land that grows a large amount of our nation’s produce. In some cases, 100 percent of some items. You can read that here and here.
We just reported on the fact that Obama still is refusing payment of pensions to WWII veterans, after cutting these men off on his second full day in office. You can read about that here.
We are also witnessing Obama vote “present” on Afghanistan. We now know he has only talked with the Commanding General once in seventy days! Brave Americans are dying daily, and yet, Obama can’t be bothered. He has shelved the request for more troops to win the war.
And as we reported here, Obama is adverse to using the word “victory.” In Obamaspeak, he is “uneasy” using the word.
And what About Iran? They are only months away from having a deliverable nuclear weapon, and Neville Chamberlain Obama is chirping about “peace in our time!” Naivete of the highest order!
But, while brave men are dying in Afghanistan, and Obama is “thinking” about his next move, he had time to fly to Copenhagen to shill for the Chicago, Daley Machine, and all of his corrupt Chicago buddies, to bring the 2016 Olympic to Chicago, a city that is bankrupt, so bankrupt in fact, that is closing offices on certain days to save money. And at least half the city’s residents want nothing to do with this deal. But Obama, and all of his crooked friends who own land will be set for life if they can pull this scam off!
And then there is ObamaCare. The number of Americans who want absolutely NOTHING to do with this fiasco is growing daily. Almost 60 percent now say NO. Or as Sarah Palin famously said “Not no, but HELL NO!”
Over 80 percent of Americans say they are happy with their health care, and the insurance plans they have now.
And yet, Obama is rushing at breakneck speed to have a complete and total government takeover of the finest health care on earth!
Oh, we need to fix some things, for sure. We need tort reforms, major tort reforms, and we need to allow Americans, individuals and businesses, to buy insurance across state lines so there will be greater competition. But we don’t need anything that even closely resembles ObamaCare.
It took Barack Obama six months to pick his kids a dog, but he wants to take over one-sixth of the nation’s economy, completely usurp our Constitution, and destroy much of our freedom and liberty, at warp speed.
Even with all of this, the most vile thing Barack Obama has visited on America, so far, is appointing a man of such low character to his administration. It would be egregious enough if Obama had appointed this fellow to some obscure road and bridge commission, but nope, our “genius” of a President appoints this guy, Kevin Jennings, as Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education!
If this isn’t proof positive that Barack Obama does not have the proper judgment to lead, the common sense the leader of our nation must possess, then I don’t know what does.
All of these insane and unconventional Czars, all of the many lies Obama has told, all of the corrupt dealings. Obama’s decades long ties to murdering domestic terrorists, as well as the dual crime syndicates of ACORN and their sister organization, Service Employees Union International (SEIU) compounded with good old fashioned Chicago thug politics all leads us to one conclusion:
Obama must go!
Mr Obama, it’s time for you to resign. Time for you to go back home to Chicago.
