DOJ’s Fast and Furious Prequel: Failed Grenade-Running Operation

The Obama Justice Department endangered public safety by allowing a renowned weapons smuggler to continue working for Mexican drug cartels even after the agency had more than enough evidence to indict him, according to a federal audit made public this week.
As if this weren’t bad enough, the case is all the more outrageous because it involves the same preposterous strategy the administration used in the disastrous gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious. That once-secret program allowed weapons from the U.S. to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels. Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of hundreds of guns which have been used in an unknown number of crimes, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona. 

Dems to Black Voters: You’re Idiots. Vote for Us

Democrat campaigns across the country are, once again, engaging in race-bating. This occurs every election cycle–usually under the radar of the mainstream media. This year’s version contains impressive historical and linguistic jiu-jitsu designed to stoke fear and loathing in an otherwise unmotivated black electorate:
The party that opposed the Emancipation Proclamation, the Thirteenth Amendment, and the Fourteenth Amendment is (according to the New York Times) distributing flyers in black communities throughout North Carolina suggesting Republicans support gun laws that specifically result in blacks getting killed.
The party that opposed the Fifteenth Amendment guaranteeing voting rights and that instituted black codes, poll taxes, and literacy tests is running ads claiming that voter-ID requirements are a Republican plot to prevent blacks from voting.

These are just another unfounded attack on Christians.

This black man tells the truth about how the left has treated blacks over the years.

This is what unsavory politicians do.  They say one thing (in this case vote for it) and then turn-around and do something different.   another example:   These are examples of how the left wins elections.  Dirty politics resides in both parties...but, the left is far ahead of the right from all I can find.

Voter Fraud

While it is true that liberals fight efforts to eliminate voter fraud is in practice a bipartisan problem.  Politicians and loyalists seemingly are willing to do anything to either get elected or turn a blind eye to improper behavior of loyalists.  Here are a few examples. 

Don't believe it is easy to commit voter fraud?  Think again.  This chart shows why committing voter fraud is easy in some locations.

Here is further insight into our national voter fraud dilemma.

Racism In America - Are Some Waking Up?

These people do not like what the President represents.  Notice how many of them are black.

Some blacks are waking up to the cold hard facts that liberalism has hurt rather than helped them.

See what this black activist has to say.  He is right on.  Liberal policies are anti-black.

Here is another black who is fed up with liberal's empty promises.

This campaign being led by blacks is a call for backs to abandon failed Democratic party policies. Quote: ""Are you better off than you were four years ago," is the question the Restore the Dream 2014 campaign is asking African-Americans.  Last week at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington D.C.,'s Niger Innis, along side civil rights activist Dr. Alveda King, kicked off the campaign. Later, he and others traveled to New York City, Raleigh, North Carolina, and they concluded the tour in Ferguson, Missouri. The Restore the Dream campaign wants to energize the African-American community to "embrace liberty, individual freedom, free markets and school-choice education," something they believe the Obama administration has hindered. “Hope and change liberals have failed the black community," said Innis."

Unfortunately this is the emerging nature of racism in today's America.

Some believe that the White House can do no wrong.  But this USA Today Bureau Chief begs to differ. "The Obama administration, despite the president's promises of transparency, is "more dangerous" to the media than any other White House in history, USA Today's Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page said this weekend."

The White House Secret Service tries to get the Nashville police to do something illegal.

This New York Times article will shock you when you learn how the IRS steals money from innocent Americans.

Honesty is not a characteristic of this CBS news team.  Reporting something proven to be false as fact is what they too often do.

Shutting down debate is what they do.

This is an interesting expose' on a Democrat billionaire liberals love to love.  Meanwhile they denigrate the Republican billionaire Koch brothers.  This item points out the hypocrisy of leftist on air reporting regarding the billionaires and their activities.  Quote:  "Despite being the biggest individual contributor to the 2014 election cycle, Steyer didn't seem to like the idea of being categorized as a liberal mega-donor. Ryan Lizza at the New Yorker recounted how Tom Steyer’s brother Jim had told him that “a friend had asked him if he and Tom were aspiring to be the Koch brothers of the left. ‘Yeah, I like that!’ Jim replied. Tom dismissed the analogy. ‘I completely disagree, because what they’re doing is standing up for ideas that they profit from,’ he said of the Kochs.”  It is true that Steyer didn’t just stand up for ideas that he profited from. He also profited from ideas that he claimed to stand against."

Obama Went And Appointed An Ebola Czar — And Now The Man Is Nowhere To Be Found

It's not often that a White House official gets mocked on both Saturday Night Live and a major daily newspaper before he makes his first public appearance.
But Ron Klain's low-profile first week as President Barack Obama's behind-the-scenes Ebola "czar" has become another attack point for a White House struggling to show it's on top of the crisis.
Since starting last Wednesday, Klain has been seen only once, in a photo op on his first day, leaving health officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and National Institutes of Health - and Obama himself - to be the public "face" of the response.

The EPA jumps the shark, banning – ARGON ?

This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “noble” cause corruption. Documentation follows. Eric Worrall writes:
h/t IceAgeNow - the American EPA has stunned observers, with a list of inert additives for pesticide formulations they intend to ban, which includes the noble gas Argon.
Its hard to imagine a more inoffensive substance than Argon. As a noble gas, Argon is chemically inert – it participates in no chemical reactions whatsoever, except under exotic conditions – there are no known chemical compounds which can survive at room temperature which include Argon. Argon is not a greenhouse gas.
But Argon is incredibly useful to industry – among other things, is used as a “shield” gas. Anyone who welds Aluminium or Stainless Steel will be familiar with Argon, which is used with MIG and TIG welders, to blow oxygen away from the electric welding arc, to prevent oxidative damage to the weld joint.
Any effort to regulate the use of this harmless substance would do incalculable damage to American industrial competitiveness, for no benefit whatsoever. 


This is typical in politics but especially for this party.  It has been done in different ways many times.

This speaks volumes about liberal mainstream media hypocrisy and obvious bias.  They lament the fact that Monica goes public while ignoring the un-presidential behavior of Bill.  The problem they see is that this could harm Hillary's presidential chances.   Then read this short piece...

Some people are willing to stoop low in espousing lies that blame problems on causes that have nothing to do with them.  Those that do this are sick. 

Now what's so wrong with saying you are an American rather than a black or African American?   Oprah appears to think that is an unspeakable sin.

Why is it that every well known Republican or Conservative is pilloried by the mainstream media but gaff prone VP Biden get a pass on his many episodes?  Could that be considered hypocrisy?

This is a short clip that synopsizes the hypocrisy of many liberal Democrats generally and Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu specifically.  The item features a former Democrat who is black and now a Republican calling out Democrat hypocrisy.

Voter Fraud

Even after many accounts during the past two elections many still believe that our electoral process is free of voter fraud.  This item should at least give you reason to think otherwise.

Here is another item which help to dispel the myth that voter fraud does not exist.

This study suggests that intentional and unintentional voting fraud can and does occur.   and here:

There are other accounts I could offer but these make the point.   George Burns

Unbelievable But True

Some of the things those in government say and do are unbelievable.  Here are a few.

Liberal hypocrisy is beyond belief.  Separation of church & state is their mantra when applied to Christianity.  But all others are welcome.

The things they say about conservatives are shameful lies and they know it.  But, political power is so important to them they do it with a straight face.  Any unbiased person who looks at the facts knows better than believe this nonsense.

Both political parties are culpable but too many liberals deny their heros ever do anything wrong.  Here are examples. 

This is truly unbelievable but a ton of Democrats are finally calling out Obama for his disastrous policies and leadership.  But, I must say, they are doing nothing but trying to distance themselves from him, a thing hard to do since they supported him all the way as his disaster unfolded.   Politics as usual as they seek to cover their behinds and salvage their political careers.

Common Core & Education

This has been going on for some time and is a travesty.  Modern day American education is filled with propaganda goop paid for by extracted taxes from average citizens who have no idea they are participating in such evil.

Check this out.  More and more people are discovering the scourge that is Common Core...

George Burns

This is What They Do And Say

Don't think voter fraud is a problem.  Check out what is going on in Obama's home state.  It definitely is a problem, a real problem.  

Wealth disparity is greater today than at any time since 1929.  Have you heard the President discuss why his economic policies are hurting the poor more than any other demographic and helped the richest the most? 

One has to wonder just who he is for.  Our interests seem to be trumped by theirs.  I thought he was our president not their sugar daddy. 

Greenpeace founder's speech challenged by Amherst College students.  His point?  Solid record of history and science.  Their point?  Intolerance of an opposing point of view based on ignorance (or denial) of the facts.

Yup, that's the ticket make them citizens, maybe they will turn out to be nice guys.  The logic escapes me.

Does anyone want to guess why lawyers prefer Democrats to Republicans?  They like the lawsuits that Democrat policies foster.  Said another way Democrats are good for their business.

George Burns

Is This Appropriate or Inappropriate Behavior?

Do you consider this behavior acceptable especially given his esteemed position in government? 

Think about it a bit.  Ask yourself if the media would be all over this if the political parties were reversed.  I keep forgetting that this is typical progressive methodology.

Where does the government get off telling people to do something against their conscience or face government punishment?  

This action taken by the state of California is nothing short of tyrannical.  

Seems to me that it is most inappropriate.  But, then again that, too, is the progressive way.

How about this item?  It is only those who adhere to political correctness dictates that demonstrate such behavior. 

This man does not deserve to hold any position of responsibility.  How many more idiotic/inappropriate/false statements must he make before demands for his resignation come forth? 

The Houston Mayor and City Attorney have doubled down on their efforts to deny pastors their rights of free speech.  This is unconscionable  and should cause those involved considerable embarrassment at their intolerant behavior by hiding behind legal maneuvers.

Regarding Islam, Bill Maher puts Charlie Rose in his place.  And Maher is right.  Read about this atrocity - Muslims execute 700 men and boys.

This is a PEW poll of the media.  It confirms in hard numbers extensive liberal media bias.

Didn't he say his was to be the most transparent administration in history?

The government contends it works for us doing good things all around.  Well take a look at the wise decisions they made spending our tax dollars last year.  Mind you this is just a very, very limited sample.

This is about a recently published book by Katha Pollitt, Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights.  The author of the article admits to not having read the book but relies on book interviews and written commentary to offer his opinion.  Seems a good idea given the apparent content of the book.  Quote: "Pollitt’s argument is that abortions have happened throughout history, and therefore…something. I guess that logic would apply across the board. Murder has occurred throughout history as well, I guess we should accept that as a common, even normal, event in the societal lives of men. Rape, too, stretches back beyond the dawn of recorded history. Normal, common. I’m not making comparisons; I’m simply pointing out that this justification for abortion is a non-starter...Pollitt goes further, explaining that abortion is simply “part of being a mother.” The decision, she says, to abort a child is every bit as moral a decision as the decision to bear one. Are you starting to understand why I’m not going to read this book?"

George Burns

Who Is He Working For?

This is unbelievable.  You have to wonder what compels him to make so many irresponsible decisions.  Most likely it is related to his progressive nature fueling his political correctness activities.

This, too, is unbelievable.  Our government is paying bribes to ISIS.  Check this out.

Congress is in on this unconscionable act of total support for GMO producers and sellers.  The president signed it into law.  He certainly did not sign it for our benefit.  He signed it for the benefit of big agribusiness.

In this case the administration brushes aside something which significantly advantages ISIS but dismisses it as insignificant because of what ISIS got for itself from our resources in Syria.  No logic in that.  What a mess this administration is making of our lives and world peace.  

It is impossible to accurately discern who the president works for.  Past performance establishes that it not the American citizens who voted for him and for sure not for those who DID NOT vote for him.  In any case I have not seen or heard him admit his culpability to anything that has gone wrong during his tenure.  It is always someone else's fault.  This time because he and his healthcare apparatus blew the Ebola thing he now has someone to blame if it gets worse.

His blatant disregard for the law and interests of the citizens he is suppose to serve is unbelievable.  Condoning the release of illegal immigrants charged with major criminal acts is beyond irresponsible.  Quote:  "New records contradict the Obama administration’s assurances to Congress and the public that the 2,200 people it freed from immigration jails last year to save money had only minor criminal records."  And "The records, obtained by USA TODAY, show immigration officials released some undocumented immigrants who had faced far more serious criminal charges, including people charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, drug trafficking and homicide."

George Burns

Scandals Continue To Unfold

This item provides hard evidence of how badly the mainstream media sets its news priorities and raises questions at to its ethics.  To them news of NFL scandals are news.  But, Obama and his administration's scandals only rate passing references.  They, in effect, work to protect the current government while short changing their mission to protect the public interests against an errant government.

This item says it is now confirmed that sensitive/classified information was taken during the infamous Benghazi raid that ended in the deaths of four Americans.
And consider this regarding the Benghazi debacle.

The CDC claims they were not prepared for the Ebola problem because of lack of funding.  But, found enough cash laying around to hire more employees and pay out $25 million in bonuses over the past ten years.  With the added money received they expanded their empire instead of focusing on responsibilities assigned them.   This doctor head of a medical association does not hold the CDC in high regard.  This item provides a summary of CDC cover-up efforts of the relationship between MMR and autism.

This is how much our president regards the lives of those serving in the military.  He sends them to Africa to help combat Ebola and gives them 4 hours of training on how to avoid getting sick themselves.

This is what President Obama intends to do despite the fact that the majority of citizens object and the action is likely unconstitutional.  By most accounts and by his own past statements he does not have the authority to do this.

Is the Last Great Bubble bursting?

I believe that the Last Great Bubble is bursting — faith in central banks to solve all problems.
I have said this before and it is worth repeating. Twenty years ago, I'm fairly sure people said "don't fight the Bank of Japan." Two months ago, you could have said "don't fight the European Central Bank." Now, with the Federal Reserve ending quantitative easing as worldwide economic data falters, it appears the time to "fight the Fed" has come.
I have waited a long time personally for this environment, given that I have largely stood alone on the deflation-pulse thesis for the better part of a year and a half, and have been very public about failed reflation. The pushback was always that I was wrong, that markets were fine, and that equity gains proved it. 

Chronicles of Injustice Under The Law Thanks To Political Correctness

No one can tell me this is justice.  It is another example of the rights granted by government (popular culture) and its politically correct practice of justice unjustly violating the rights of those holding deeply held religious beliefs.  Here is a challenge.  When have you seen similar actions taken in regard to Islam actions in our country?  By any rational definition the injustice in this link counter the long standing practice of respecting our nation's historic religious principles.  It is a prime example of progressive government policies violating the first Amendment rights of one group in favor of a government created right for a politically favored group.


Have your heard the latest regarding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?  Read this and note the theme of hypocrisy that runs through it. 

A scratch your head item.  Demands huge sums of money of colleges and universities just for a speech.  During the speech laments the cost of going to college.  Go figure.

This former favorite of the left's fall from grace is due in part to his hypocritical racist words and deeds.  This is a sad example of how he and others have sought to claim that the first death from Ebola was the result of racism.

Not hypocrisy per se but a questionable thing for a lawyer and candidate for governor to say.  He must have missed the classes on the Constitution.  He believes the government dispenses rights.

Our Hundred Years' War

All the commentaries about ISIS and the campaign against it, whether coming from the left, right, or middle, overlook the basic nature of the conflict: the fact that this is a thirty -- if not a hundred -- years’ war.
Barack Obama, the president with the least understanding of military affairs of any on record, is fighting this as a limited war, a war of “containment” with no overall strategy of the moment, much less any kind of grand strategy for the long run. Obama, along with his various Middle East “experts” of the Susan Rice and Samantha Power variety, persists in stumbling from crisis to crisis, never accomplishing much, never looking forward to the next move, forever playing catchup ball. The end result has been political chaos, humanitarian disaster, and a revival of Jihadi fortunes throughout the Islamic crescent.
We got in this position through half steps. The Bush administration was unwilling to lay out the facts of this conflict in the manner of John F. Kennedy’s description of the Cold War as the “long twilight struggle.” All the same, Bush had a strategy, and a very profound one: crush the Taliban, harry Al Qaeda, destroy Saddam Hussein’s Iraq -- which would inevitably try to set itself up as Terrorism Central -- and terrify the rest of the Arab world, whether allies or enemies, into behaving themselves.

Trusting This Administration On Ebola, Or Anything Else, Is Insanity

Maybe the White House could organize a coherent response to the myriad problems exploding all over the place if this was an amorphous “community” instead of an actual country. We are seeing a real-life PowerPoint demonstration explaining exactly what happens when you turn the Executive Branch over to people who have never executed anything more complex than a sit-in at the local welfare office.
Since everything they touch turns to failure, their response is to lie. And everyone sees it. Everyone except Chet. Chet is my unicorn.
I’m a lawyer and get paid to watch equivocating weasels twist in the wind – in fact, one of the best parts of my job is doing the huffing and puffing. I have to give credit to the director of the Centers for Disease Control – rarely have I disbelieved someone so thoroughly so quickly. I don’t even believe his punctuation. 

Obama to Bypass Congress on Easing of Iran Sanctions

President Barack Obama is doing everything in his power to bypass Congress and suspend most of the sanctions placed on Iran over its nuclear program, The New York Times reports.

The president’s efforts to undercut Congress in the negotiations have riled many members, including New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“If a potential deal does not substantially and effectively dismantle Iran’s illicit nuclear weapons program, I expect Congress will respond,” said Menendez, who has sponsored legislation to “tighten” sanctions if no deal is struck by Nov. 24. “An agreement cannot allow Iran to be a threshold nuclear state.”

Martin Luther King, Jr. Niece: 'Moral Bankruptcy' Ruling Washington D.C. Under Obama

There is a “moral bankruptcy” that’s settled into leadership of America in the White House and throughout Washington, D.C., Dr. Alveda King—the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.—said in an interview Friday morning.

“All of our leaders—or many of our leaders—are just morally bankrupt right now,” King said when asked if President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have helped or hurt the black community in America. “They’re not calling on God. We still stay ‘In God We Trust’ and ‘One Nation Under God’ but we’re not practicing that. We need to call on God. There’s a moral bankruptcy in this country and we really need to come back to God.” 

Do You Really Want This Couple Back In The White House?

Member of US Fed suggests delay to taper

A member of the US Federal Reserve suggested Thursday that the central bank should consider prolonging its bond-buying stimulus program, which is due to begin to wind-up this month.
James Bullard, the head of the St Louis branch of the Fed, is not a voting member of the bank's monetary committee, but markets will pay attention to his views as the Fed weighs its options.
He told Bloomberg Television he was concerned about falling inflation forecasts and said quantitative easing – the Fed's large-scale bond-buying programme – should continue.
"Inflation expectations are dropping in the US and that is something that a central bank cannot abide," Bullard said.

At least 113 staffers at U.S. Fed earn more than Yellen

The top 113 earners among staff at the Federal Reserve's Washington headquarters make an average of $246,506 per year, excluding bonuses and other benefits - more than Fed Chair Janet Yellen and nearly double the normal top government rate.
Yellen, whose salary is set by Congress, earns $201,700 a year.
The details on Fed pay were provided to Reuters in response to a Freedom of Information Act request for data on all employees of the U.S. central bank's board whose salaries outstrip $130,810, which is the top of the government's pay scale in most areas.
However, the central bank only provided salaries for staff who make at least $225,000 a year, with some exceptions. It is the first time the list has been made public.

White House Doesn’t Really Know What The ‘Ebola Czar’ Knows About Ebola

In his White House briefing Friday, press secretary Josh Earnest struggled to tell the White House Press Corps what newly-appointed “Ebola Czar” Ron Klain even knows about the lethal virus that has America worried.
After fielding a question from CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta wondering about Klain’s knowledge of Ebola, Earnest spent roughly two minutes beating around the bush explaining Klain’s bonafides, much of which had nothing to do with Ebola, and about his other experience, particularly while managing the stimulus package of 2009.
“What does Ron Klain know about Ebola?” questioned Acosta. 

Random Items

You will not believe this!  Our country is actively working to expedite entrance visas to the US for citizens of Ebola infected countries.  Quote:  "Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died from Ebola earlier this month, had traveled to the United States after his visa was approved in August, the same month that USCIS announced the new relief measures."  The logical conclusion one can draw from this is that the Obama administration is knowingly risking the importation of Ebola into this country.   That is mine, but draw your own conclusions.

This provides insight into the past of the current director of the CDC.  It suggests his appointment was probably a big mistake.  The way he has handled the Ebola issue is case in point.  

Some interesting perspectives from the conservative side of the ledger.  I urge those with liberal leanings to give them consideration.
