Faux Outrage of the Week

Further demonstrating that:

  1.  liberals have no sense of humor.
  2.  The lick-spittle liberal media will latch onto anything to avoid talking about Obama's record.
One look at the links on memeorandum from today shows all kinds of links reporting on and some showing outrage over the funny.
Twitchy documents the unhinged response from the dinosaur media on twitter.
I guess it's to be expected, back when this question first came up during the 2008 election, I found myself in an online discussion with some friends about the possibility. The way I felt about it and still do is that it doesn't matter if it was true because the liberal media here would never allow it to have legs.

Now am I saying there is a conspiracy with in the media to hide Obama's foreign birth?
Absolutely not, what I am saying is that the media will do everything they can to keep Obama in the White House up to and including covering up any and all violations of the constitution or election law.
It's no secret the liberal media is in the tank for Obama and have continued to violate their journalistic integrity in an attempt to keep him where he is.

That's why Romney's little joke made such a big whoop today, it's become another inflated news story for the media to report on instead of covering Romney/Ryan's ideas to create jobs and lower the deficit.
Obama doesn't have a plan to counter with so the only thing they can do is distort and distract.
In the mean time more people become unemployed, the federal debt rises and the economy stays flat.

We deserve better from the media in this country......we deserve to hear and see the unbiased truth.

Dance Debbie, Dance

Saw this at Weasel Zippers.
Every time I see Debbie downer squirm I have to smile.
Anderson Cooper actually does a good job here of pointing out the deception that the DNC is trying to pull over everyone's eyes. Also note how she says inaccuracy doesn't matter as long as there is a point to be made.
This is the strategy of the democrat party, to distort and out and out falsely claim things that are not true, for people who are so weak willed that they will fall for their distortions.

The LA Times article is here.

Even Obama's Media See's It

I was really surprised to see CBS covering the slow demise of America's middle class this evening.

Middle-class Americans see their incomes drop

(CBS News) ARLINGTON, Texas - In the presidential campaign, both candidates have made the election all about the middle class.
A report out Wednesday from the Pew Research Center shows us why so many members of that class are frustrated -- their net worth has dropped dramatically since the Great Recession. About 85 percent say it is more difficult than it was a decade ago to make ends meet.
The study of middle-class Americans, like New Jersey garage owner John O'Connor, looked at households with incomes ranging from $39,000 to $118,000.
New Jersey garage owner John O'Connor said the American dream is still intact, but the road to getting has gotten bumpier.
"We don't dine out." he said. "We don't go to the movies the way we used to. Like everybody, I think we've become more frugal," said O'Connor.
Between 2000 and 2010, median middle-class wealth dropped 28 percent from about $130,000 to $93,000. Lower real estate values played a big part. About 42 percent said their financial situation is worse now than before the Great Recession.
"This is the first decade in the post-World War II era where the middle class -- indeed all families -- have actually less income at the end of the decade than they had at the beginning of the decade," said Paul Taylor, who co-authored the report.
The study also found the percentage of Americans in the middle class fell from 61 percent in 1971, to 51 percent now. 
Of course they avoided showing the steep decline over the last 4 years while Obama has been steering the ship into the rocks.
While Obama, the lick-spittle liberal media and the democrats have been distracting people with Sandra Fluke, Romney's taxes, Chick-fil-a and Rep Akins idiotic statements the public at large has been losing financial ground and the security they once had.
We're all being cheated by the lapdog media and their democrat handlers, just out of earshot Romney/Ryan say they have solutions to the decline of Americas middle class. Yet we can't hear them over the constant shrill outrage of the liberal progressives about every distraction they can manufacture. 
Simply because they have no solutions...nothing but their record for the last 4 years and they sure don't want to talk about that.

Updated: Dem Senator tells Troops to,"Go F*** Themselves"

I don't know about the rest of you out there but I'm waiting for the media outrage and dis-owning of this Senator by the DNC.

Senator Clarifies Remark Telling Troops To ‘Go Fuck Themselves’, Says Quote Taken Out Of Context

Phoenix, AZ - A state senator is in hot water after making controversial remarks last week in an interview with Arizona Foothills Magazine. The full interview, which is to be released Friday, includes contentious quotes on military service-members, the constitution, and defense spending.

Senator Linda Lopez (D-29, AZ), a member of the Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, was apparently quoted during the interview as saying “the troops should just go fuck themselves.” Lopez continues to claim that her remarks have been “taken out of context” and that she is in fact a huge supporter of the U.S. military.
It’s not the first time Lopez is being questioned for something she said. In the wake of the Gabrielle Giffords’ shooting, she told an interviewer that the shooter was “probably a veteran of Afghanistan.“ The shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, had no military experience.
Her most recent remarks come after a vote in the Committee to improve education benefits and mental health services for veterans of all service branches. Lopez opposed the bill and was the only no vote, telling reporters that she opposed it on constitutional grounds. When pressed further, she admitted however, that “she hates the fucking constitution.”
Minutes after making the remark, she told reporters that she misspoke and didn’t mean to use profanity.
“I only voted no on the bill because I support the troops, but don’t support the war,” Lopez said. “Besides, if these numbskulls would quit enlisting, we wouldn’t need to support the stupid fucks. That last part’s off the record, by the way.”
Lopez has maintained that the full context of her interview quote was about supporting the troops and giving them fleshlights as a way “to go fuck themselves in the warzone and at home.”
I know , as everyone else does, that this will get no where near the same press as Rep. Akin's remarks on rape because the truth is that the dinosaur media and progressive liberals truly do hate the troops. Believing them to simply be cannon fodder in their ideological battle for the country.
But the selective outrage of the commie leftists and their lick-spittle media needs to be documented at every turn. 
Because they own it and need to eventually be held accountable.

Update: See first comment.

Look!! Another Squirrel!!

So this week we have another idiotic sound bite by another politician. The really news worthy thing was that it wasn't Joe "put ya all in chains" Biden making the moron hit parade.
It was Todd Akin from Missouri.
And of course his remarks have generated a much deserved backlash
Rep. Akin resists mounting calls to withdraw from Senate race after 'rape' comment

The Obamessiah has even jumped into the fray denouncing Akins remarks, as they should be. But herein lies the problem.
Obama has time and uses the press to denounce someone in a single senate race but doesn't seem to have the time or resources to address unemployment, the lack of a budget, rising gas prices, the sky rocketing deficit or any of the other problems that face the people of this nation.
This is just an excuse for Obama to talk about anything else but his piss poor record in office.
Were Rep. Akins remarks stupid and should he be held accountable?
Yes and yes.
The question is should Obama spend his time calling out some GOP senate wannabe from Missouri?
The media, old and new, will make sure Akin's remarks will get a full airing to his constituents and they will decide by ballot.

Obama needs to stop with the distractions and face accountability for his actions and policies over the last 4 years.
Fat chance of that happening.

Joe Biden....Comic Relief

There was a rumour going around that Joe "Bozo" Biden might be dropped as VP from the Dem ticket and replaced by Hillary Clinton.
Fortunately she turned it down, claiming she was just to tired from all the international travel to jump into a campaign. Those years do catch up Hill.
Most likely though the real reason is if she does make a 2016 run she doesn't want to be saddled with Obama's liberal baggage.

Anyway the good news is we get more Joe!!!

The gift that keeps on giving.

Ray Kroc's Curse on America

There are times I believe I should stay off facebook because some of the stuff posted there is beyond vapid.
Every once in a while you'll read about someone condemning McDonald's over the obesity epidemic in America.
As always it starts out with the typical class warfare evil corporation crap bemoaning the profits Mickey D's makes while trying to kill it's customer base from heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer and just plain clogging arteries.

I'm old enough to remember when the McDonald's menu was:
  • Hamburger
  • Cheeseburger
  • Fries
  • Vanilla or Chocolate Shake
  • Coke
In all that time, through the 60's to now I have never seen anyone force anyone else to eat at McDonald's at gun point......not once.
When I was a kid growing up some of the things we didn't have was X-Boxes, Nintendo, hundreds of channels on cable TV or the Internet.
We had parents who would shoo us out of the house and told us to find something to do.
So we did, we played baseball and football, hide and seek, tag, shoot em up, and wrestling.
We explored the neighborhood, sometimes got in fights and then made up an hour later. When we got older we mowed lawns for money, hired ourselves out to widows and older ladies to do chores or gather empty soda bottles for the refund.
Seems we always had a little money and frankly I don't remember being bored very long.

I know, it sounds positively medieval, but I don't remember very many obese kids either.
That's why I roll my eyes every time I read about someone blaming Mickey D's because their kids are fat.
Maybe they just need to shoo them out of the house and find something to do.

Where's Brian Ross When you Need Him?

Well, it seems that today we finally had a shooting that appears to be ideologically motivated.

Virginia man charged in shooting at Family Research Council
Washington (CNN) -- A 28-year-old Virginia man was held late Wednesday on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon after a security guard was wounded in the lobby of the Family Research Council, a conservative policy organization, authorities said.
Police and federal agents were investigating what prompted the suspect, identified by the FBI as Floyd Lee Corkins II, to walk into the group's headquarters about 10:45 a.m. and open fire.
Corkins, is from Herndon, a suburb of Washington, the FBI said in a statement about the charge.
The guard helped wrestle the gunman to the ground. Called a hero by police, the security officer was in stable condition after being shot in the arm.
A law enforcement official said the gunman made some remarks opposing the Family Research Council's policies before opening fire.
A source working with the DC Center for the LGBT Community told CNN that Corkins had worked as a volunteer at the center.
David Mariner, executive director of that center, released a statement Wednesday night saying he was "shocked to hear that someone who has volunteered with the DC Center could be the cause of such a tragic act of violence.
Funny thing is that it took hours before the mainstream media bothered to gather any facts about the shooter and his motives. Which didn't seem to be the case with the gunmen in Aurora Colo. or the Sikh Temple shooting with the MSM twisting every direction in the wind to find a "right wing" connection.
Ah, maybe they weren't near a computer and couldn't google his name or maybe they felt the FRC brought it on themselves. Being a disgusting hate group and all according to the SPLC.
Must be nice to have that kind of power, to use the strength of opinion to smear anyone you want.

I'm sure it's an interesting position the progressive left has found themselves in, after demonizing conservatives at every turn when a violent act by a deranged lunatic happens to find themselves in the same position they tried to put others in.
Only this time the dots are connected and their hateful rhetoric against dissent is starting to come back and bite at them.
But to me what's truly disturbing is that leftists have a tendency to elevate and admire the most violent of extreme leftists. Like Che Guevara, Mao Zedong,  Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorn because their violence was committed for the struggle.
As a matter of fact I wouldn't be surprise to see a "FREE Floyd Lee Corkins!!" T-shirt and bumper sticker in a few days.
Leftists will always embrace "martyrs to the cause".

Random Stuff

Couple of pictures from  facebook that I saw and wanted to share.

This one I got from Barack Obama's Dead Fly, just something to remind us of who else are the enemies of freedom and civil rights.
Obama has eclipsed Carter in the number of countries seized by Islamic radicals under his watch ever. Carter lost just one, so far Obama has 2 and counting.

This is from ForAmerica.
I'm old enough to remember the four years the POS on the right was in charge of America's "malaise", somehow I don't think Obama being to the left of Carter in this pic wasn't intentional.
In the almost 6 decades that I've been alive I never thought I woud live to see anyone worse than Jimmy Carter.
Boy was I wrong.

Debbie does Dumb ass....Again

There's so many strange things about this video I don't even know where to begin but I'll comment on a few things.
One, Wolf Blitzer....since when did he become a real journalist?
He actually pins Debbie Downer to the mat and doesn't let her get away with her usual half truths and distortions.
Second, while a lot of people see this as an opportunity to see Debbie Wasserman Schultz spin uncontrollably, I see something different. What I see is a democratic party terrified that the citizens of this country may actually seize control of their money and future without the guiding hand of a socialist government controlling it for them.
Even when George Bush proposed that people be allowed to control just a portion of their Social Security (1/3) with voluntary individual accounts the leftist democrats went apoplectic.
Debbie and the DNC don't care about seniors, what they care about is controlling their money, all our money.
See, if they can keep it under control and then control our health care decisions then it becomes all about the money and not about our well being.
We die and they, instead of our families, keep the money.

Progressive democrats are simply ghouls feeding off society for the sole purpose of dribbling our own money back to us to maintain control.

Maybe it's not Paranoia

Ever since Obama entered office and appointed his hand picked hacks to high level positions the push has been on to demonize his opposition.
Up to and including trying to designate the Tea Party as a bunch of right wing terrorists.

It now appears that that kind of smear is being escalated up a notch by an article from the Small Wars Journal. From the Washington Times.

EDITORIAL: The Civil War of 2016

Imagine Tea Party extremists seizing control of a South Carolina town and the Army being sent in to crush the rebellion. This farcical vision is now part of the discussion in professional military circles.
At issue is an article in the respected Small Wars Journal titled “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A ‘Vision’ of the Future.” It was written by retired Army Col. Kevin Benson of the Army's University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and Jennifer Weber, a Civil War expert at the University of Kansas. It posits an “extremist militia motivated by the goals of the ‘tea party’ movement” seizing control of Darlington, S.C., in 2016, “occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council and placing the mayor under house arrest.” The rebels set up checkpoints on Interstate 95 and Interstate 20 looking for illegal aliens. It’s a cartoonish and needlessly provocative scenario.
This isn't from some den of paranoid basement dwellers hiding out in their moms basement putting out a online news letter, and that's what makes it such an eye opener.
With the recently reported news that the Obama administration ordered law enforcement to "stand down" and not arrest occupy protesters and then this, it makes you wonder what Obama has in mind for those who oppose him.

This "administration" needs to be voted out in November.

Obama a GoGo

Saw this over at Grouchy Old Cripple's and I had to share it.
The only thing that will put a bigger smile on my face is all the depressed looks of the alphabet talking heads when Obama gets defeated in November.

Persistence in the Face of Defeat

You'd think that after the massive support of Chick-fil-a   on Aug. 1 there would be a re-evaluation of how the gay marriage supporters present themselves to the rest of the country.

Chick-fil-A Touts Record Profits
Following the intense backlash fast-food chain Chick-fil-A received when its president publicly took a stance against gay marriage, supporters of "traditional marriage"—and fried-chicken sandwiches—spoke with their dollars.
But no, they start immediately looking for someone else to intimidate.

Petitions want Berenstain Bears out of Chick-fil-A campaign

PHILADELPHIA –  The publisher of the Berenstain Bears children's books is being urged to cut ties with Chick-fil-A because of its president's statements opposing gay marriage.
Three organizations said Wednesday they delivered petitions with 80,000 signatures to HarperCollins. The petitions demand the New York-based publishing house end the Berenstain Bears' affiliation with the national fast-food chain and say the beloved bears teach the importance of standing against bigotry.
The petitions urge HarperCollins to follow the lead of the Jim Henson Co., which pulled its Muppet toys from Chick-fil-A kids' meals. A similar campaign with Berenstain Bears is slated for this month.
Ya know...people are free to spend or not spend their money on what they please.  But it seems odd to me that groups who attempt to "shame" businesses and customers into not supporting someone for their beliefs would continue to do so after getting soundly rebuked for their efforts.
This really doesn't seem to be the best way to persuade others to a particular position.
Maybe after the backlash becomes more intense these groups will re-think labeling people with different views as "haters" and "bigots".

I kind of doubt it though.

From Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion

Here's some more "tolerance" from the "kiss-in" protesters.
Lets see...number of Chick-fil-a's vandalized on 8/1?....0
Number vandalized since? far.

One in California and one in Missouri  and counting.
I don't know how any sane person could think this kind of behavior would persuade anyone towards their point of view.

Karma...Gotta Love it

Liberal douche of the universe gets his hate out at an employee serving him at the drive through of a Chick-fil-a. Brags about it on YouTube then pulls the video, fortunately it was saved for prosperity by other vigilant YouTube users and placed back on display for the world to see his "righteous" indignation. Of course his employer saw it also and promptly fired his ass.

Vante of Tucson, AZ Regrets Actions of Former CFO

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - The following is a statement from Vante:
Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.
The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.
We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.
 I'm sure he thinks it was worth it though, his stock among other deranged half witted liberals went up a few notches.
For more civilized folks he'll always be just another douchebag.

Taking a Stand With Chicken

Here's some pretty good news, people who believe in free speech and free markets blasted the Chick-fil-a boycott into irrelevance.
And the homosexual activists and their liberal supporters along with the  lick-spittle liberal media have only themselves to blame.
For years Conservatives and Christians have sat silently by while gay activists and their supporters whined, screamed at, threatened, insulted and denigrated them. They've attempted to bully and browbeat others to accept, what to many, is the unacceptable and this time they've pushed it to far.

Exactly what did Dan Cathy say to cause such an uproar?
He offered his own opinion.
"I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'" Cathy said. "I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."
Cathy explains that the company that his father created and the one that he now runs is possible because of family and the support that families offer.
"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that … We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that," Cathy said.
He also expressed something that has become pretty foreign nowadays, the idea that there are virtues worth living up to.
Things like fidelity, commitment, support of family and a humble gratitude for what he's been able to help build.
These are things that, at one time in America, were desirable characteristics in a business owner and something he looked for in his employees. Things that good men and women aspired to.
But virtues seem to be out of fashion these days, a commitment to marriage, fidelity, family and humility have become worthy of scorn and ridicule from the gay crowd and their liberal political panderers.

The truth is that real Americans have been pushed to far, the incessant demands of the entitlement crowd, gay activists and "give it away" liberal democrats has just reached the point where we are saying "enough".
What happened today was a peaceful and orderly message. It's the way Conservatives and Christians do things and in a sane world it would be a wake up call.

But the truth is it won't be, and the liberal bullies will just keep pushing until there will be another peaceful and orderly message sent loud and clear in November.
