Insufferable Truther Douche Jesse Ventura Doubles Down

Personally I determined Jesse Ventura irrelevant long ago after he started doing the series "Conspiracy Theory". I figured that everyone has to make a paycheck and if he was desperate enough for one that he aligned himself with Rosie O'Donnell and Alex Jones then his reputation was pretty much soiled. I never thought about him much after that and when I'd see commercials for his "program" I didn't think he could sink much lower.
I guess I was wrong.
Like a lot of people I wasn't in the courtroom and didn't get to hear what the jury did to side with tin hat Ventura but I do have an opinion.
For one thing, going on live TV to spike the ball seems to me to be really petty and brings the whole thing to a new low and that's besides the fact that he went after Chris Kyles widow.
Also if he held the SEAL community in such high esteem you would think that their reaction to his actions would have caused him to reconsider what he was doing.

But it didn't, in a cheap attempt to divert attention from his despicable pursuit of someone who isn't even alive to defend himself Jesse the douche whines on TV about him being a victim.

Ventura is past his expiration date and here's hoping he'll crawl away into the obscurity he so richly deserves.

Despite the Unsettled Science Dems Still Pushing 'Climate Change'

Because the science is "settled" the democrats continue to push 'global warming'. You know, because it was so settled that they changed it from global warming to climate change.

Fortunately sanity sometimes prevails.

Inhofe blocks climate change resolution
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) blocked Senate Democrats on Monday from passing a resolution that would have acknowledged the reality of climate change.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) asked unanimous consent to pass S.Res. 524, which is a measure that expresses the sense of the Senate that climate change is occurring and poses a risk to the United States. But Inhofe objected.
“All we wanted to say in this resolution is climate change is happening,” Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said on the Senate floor. “We can’t afford to sit around here debating whether climate change is real.”
Inhofe has been an ardent climate change denier, saying it is the “biggest hoax” perpetrated against mankind.~snip~
Inhofe has got it right, the whole "climate change/global warming" thing is just another attempt at income redistribution with the UN trying to make it world wide.
What's interesting about this is that from the land of Mao's Little Red Book comes this article claiming the sun and not CO2 has more effect on earth's climate. If anyone would believe in redistributing wealth you would think it would be the communist Chinese.
The science isn't settled and all Inhofe's trying to do is to keep the democrats from blindly pushing us forward on something they don't understand, like they did with health care..

BTW I remember when Mao's Little Red Book was all the rage on leftist campuses so if you ever wonder why we're where we are as a country that is one of the reasons.

Sarah Palin,still rent free after all these years

It never fails, if you want to send liberal/progressives into fits of slobbering incoherent rage all you got to do is mention Sarah Palin.
All the buzz words come out, irrelevant, quitter, dumb, caribou Barbie and lots and lots of 4 letter words interspersed with drool and slobbering down their chins.

For someone so irrelevant and out of touch she sure causes a lot of left wing angst.

So it's no surprise that when she starts a news site the knives come out long and sharp.

Sarah Palin's Low-Budget TV Channel Is Pricier Than Netflix
Sarah Palin is returning to her roots in low-budget television—but this time, she's  on the web, the focus is American politics, and she owns the network. The Sarah Palin Channel launched Sunday, asking prospective viewers for $9.95 per month–96 cents more than Netflix–or $99.95 a year. (No word on whether subscribers get money back if Palin decides to stick with the project for only half of that term.) The cost is the same as GBTV, the web-TV channel run by Glenn Beck, a role model for wealthy media figures who hope to monetize the cult of personality they've built up by expertly playing to the cultural affinities and anxieties of Red America.~snip~
I think what really pisses them off is that they'll have to fork over the monthly $9.95 fee to see what "Sarah says" and what "Sarah wears" so they breathlessly report it to the rabid left wing base. Gotta keep the vitriol level up.
Lets face it, the free model out there for news hasn't worked out very well for America seeing as how all major news outlets have been infested with progressive/commies so maybe a lot of folks will be willing to pay for the opportunity to get their news with out the pinko tinge that emanates from left wing news rooms. They can't have that because they won't be able to control the narrative.

I haven't decided if I'll pony up the $9.95 a month yet but I'm sure they won't miss it, there are plenty of people out there who will. How successful it is will send a message to the left wing megaliths that think they can control what news people want to see or hear and that is what truly scares them and sends them in paroxysms of rage.
Good for you Sarah.

Ditzi America?

Other than an opportunity to post a video with attractive women in bikinis there is actually a reason for watching this....other than attractive women in bikinis.
We've gotten away from teaching our history to the younger generation. This is actually more than what ideological side you're on but just basic stuff.
We're talking about whole generations who aren't aware of the various conflicts we have been in or why those who were in power at the time took the actions that they did.
That's why this century will be the most dangerous.

The Problem with the Death Penalty

The current mainstream media outrage in this news cycle is about the execution of Joseph Woods and the amount of time it took for him to die by lethal injection in Arizona.
As a matter of fact it's enough of an issue that media whore John McCain, who never lets an opportunity pass to flap his gums, had something to say about it.

One of the things you'll notice is that when they describe the 2 murders he was convicted of there is no description of the pain his victims suffered or the amount of time they lay dying.
Those omissions are of course intentional because the progressive/liberal media wants to engender sympathy for the murderer.

Lethal injection is the newest method being used to avoid "cruel and unusual punishment". A way to sanitize execution so as not to disturb the sensibilities of the public.

A lot of states adopted a 3 drug protocol which, if administered correctly, was a pretty effective way to execute murderers.
But Joseph Woods wasn't executed using the 3 drug protocol because death penalty opponents began shaming the companies who manufactured them causing the only company making sodium thiopental to stop doing so.
So states are in a search for other protocols to execute murderers as ordered by the courts. Apparently their search for alternatives isn't going so well.
So why don't we return to the tried and true methods of the past, hanging, the electric chair, firing squad or even the gas chamber. These resulted in death way quicker than 2 hours even during the rare times they were botched.

Executing murderers should never be sanitized for the sensibilities of society. We should be able to administer the ultimate punishment to those who violate the most basic right of depriving someone of their life without being squeamish or apologetic about it.
The truth is to those opposed to the death penalty there will never be a humane enough way to execute the rabid predators of society and we should stop trying.

An Ode to Mary Jo

Yesterday marked the 45 anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne and the cover up that allowed Ted Kennedy to become the "Lion of the Senate".
I was 15 years old at the time and the moon landing pretty much took center stage in the news cycle But I was aware that something had happened at Chappaquiddick Island involving Kennedy and a young woman who died.
Of course the media at the time used the moon landing as the big story to cover up information about the facts surrounding Teddy's total disregard for a human life.
He pretty much skated responsibility for his actions and has never really been held accountable.
Democrats and the liberal media have honed their skills at altering the narrative on many issues since then to hide the truth behind their own racism, sexism and misogyny.

Anyway, over the years the truth behind a lot of these things have finally come out. Unfortunately too late to really do anything about it.
Like holding them accountable.
Over on Twitchy there's a compilation of tweets by Brian Cates (@drawandstrike) that tells the story of Chappaquiddick.

Must read: User @drawandstrike tweets ‘epic rant about Chappaquiddick’

Also there is Y TED that goes into more detail.

If there ever was a more obvious instance of the media not doing their job and exposing their bias this is it.
Hopefully the era of the internet is the beginning of the end of mainstream medias deceptions and malfeasance in support of liberal/progressive democrats.

The Worms of the GOP

Personally I think it's a little obvious why conservative voters didn't support Romney. After all he was offered up by the RINO RNC.

GOP Moderates in Kansas Endorse Democrat for Governor
Some 100 moderate Republicans have turned against Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and endorsed his Democratic challenger Paul Davis, Politico reported.
Old-school moderate Republicans have lost their place in the GOP-controlled Kansas legislature. They blame Brownback, who is a fiscal and social conservative.
Under Brownback, the state has set strict limits on abortion. Davis, however, said he would leave them in place. "We have one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, and I'm not going to seek to change the law," he said, according to Politico.
Davis breaks with Brownback on implementing a planned tax cut saying he prefers to use the money on education.~snip~
 I think it says a whole lot that "moderate republicans" are closer in ideology to a democrat than a fiscal and social conservative.
There's no doubt that this country needs to get democrats out of Washington,DC but we'll have to be realistic about the type of RINO the RNC will offer us again because the track record hasn't been so great.
Reversing the damage that Obama and the democrats have done will go very slowly until the RNC can be purged of its gutless, spineless RINOs and a wave of conservatives takes it over.

Obama Worshipper Update

I'm sure most people remember Peggy Joseph and her breathless support for the Obamessiah, It seems that almost 6 years later she's had an epiphany and has now realized that Obama isn't all that she hoped he would be. 
Her message now is to basically be leery of the man behind the curtain.

Denying the Consequences

As always liberal/progressives go full bore ahead with their ill considered ideas without looking far enough ahead to see the consequences.

Report: SMALL LIFELESS, DEAD CHILDREN Found “Washed Up Along Riverbank” of Rio Grande
“The life jackets helped many make it across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, the Mexican city across the water from Mission, just west of McAllen. Sources say they come over on rafts ferried by the so-called “coyotes,” the human smugglers whose means of transport are rendered useless whenever discovered by the Border Patrol. Many don’t make it across the river; multiple sources became emotional when recounting their discoveries of small, lifeless bodies washed up along the riverbank.”
The flood of illegal immigrant children to our borders can be directly connected to the Obama administrations lackadaisical enforcement of our immigration laws. While they are all wringing their hands and squealing about how we have to be compassionate they ignore the ever increasing body count of the unaccompanied minors who are dying in their rush to get here.
What we are seeing now is just the ones we find within our borders. There's no telling how many have expired on the other side and liberal/progressives don't want to know.
The reason is that all the dead children can be laid at the feet of of this administration. Their contempt for the rule of law and the encouragement of the open borders zealots contributes to these deaths as much as the heat, drownings, or abuse by smugglers.
It just goes to show once again that liberal/progressives are neither caring nor compassionate to others.
If they were they would care about the body count and finding a way to stop it.

Another Example of Government Competence

What's really disturbing about this is this is the same government that wants to be in charge of our health care and be able to sick the IRS on us if we don't comply.

The Selective Service just reminded 14,000 men born between 1893 and 1897 to register for the draft
Are you a man born in Pennsylvania between 1893 and 1897? If so, a government agency may have just reminded you to register for the draft.
The Selective Service System, which keeps a roster of potential men who can be enlisted in the military, inadvertently sent out mailings to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born in those years, reminding them to register.~snip~
Also I gotta ask, why is the Selective Service System holding onto 120 year old records?

Meanwhile Back at the IRS

With the plethora of scandals and incompetencies coming from the Obama administration and his various obedient minions in government it's easy to lose sight of each individual outrage against the country.
So here's a reminder that the investigation into the repressive IRS is continuing.
Slowly but it is moving along.

Lois Lerner cautioned against email chatter amid lawmaker probes
Former IRS official Lois Lerner said she warned her colleagues to be careful about what they write in emails amid congressional inquiries, according to new emails released by House Oversight Republicans.
She also asked whether the IRS’s internal messaging system could be searched, in the same email to an IRS colleague. It was sent April 9, 2013, less than two weeks after the IRS inspector general that unearthed the tea party targeting practice shared a draft report with the agency.
“I was cautioning folks about email and how we have had several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails — so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails,” she wrote to Maria Hooke, the director of business systems planning for the tax-exempt division. “Someone asked if OCS conversations were also searchable — I don’t know. … Do you know?”~snip~  
Because,you know, if we're not doing anything wrong we still need to be careful what we say in case anyone calls us out on it.
The IRS has unprecedented power to disrupt and ruin our lives and seems to feel that it is accountable to no one. Federal agencies are also havens for leftist partisan hacks who can undermine or support various administrations based on ideology.
Some people have called for eliminating the IRS and establishing a flat tax or some such other scheme and while that would be ideal....and fair it'll never happen. Basically because politicians use the tax code to further their ambitions. But, other than public sector unions, there is really nothing standing in the way of congress purging the agency of leftist partisan.
If not then they will simply be sleeper agents for leftist politicians and we will never be rid of these socialist.

What liberals ignore 'about the children' and immigration

When it comes to the flood of illegal immigrant children coming across the border and overwhelming the agencies trying to help them there is an abundance of hand wringing and demands for compassion.
 There's not a lot of that when it comes to the rising death toll that occurs when people who are ill equipped or weakened by disease expire in the heat of the desert.

For the last two years, Professor Lori Baker of Baylor University has been lending her expertise to helping identify the bodies of those who tried and failed to sneak into our country through the forbidden landscape at our southern border.
But this year, she is seeing something different. Professor Baker told Waco's KXXV TV that they have been seeing the bodies of children more often this year. "I think it's something right now where we're in a crisis," Baker told the TV news. "Now with the number of immigrants coming and the number of children, it's a disastrous situation."
The job is a complicated and often fruitless one, as the professor and her students have to work with multiple agencies in multiple countries. These multiple languages, various bureaucracies, and sometimes even distrust between nations complicate her job.~snip~
I really haven't seen a whole of reporting on the senseless loss of life that occurs because of the constant open border advocacy by liberal/progressives, Obama and the democrats. Republicans aren't blameless either but democrats can minimize this loss of life by closing the borders and to stop encouraging illegals, especially children, to make the journey in the hopes of fading away into the country.
There just doesn't seem to be the same level of compassion from liberal/progressives for the children who die and their bodies are left alone in the desert to be picked apart by scavengers.
This hypocrisy shouldn't be much of a surprise. Anyone who's been paying attention knows that liberal/progressives care about no one. Not gays,not minorities, not women and certainly not children.
All they care about is advancing their agenda, which is to turn the United States into their twisted version of socialist nanny state.

When Liberals Attack part II

This has been making the rounds on the internet since at least yesterday. I caught it on Twitchy again today and it pretty much sums up why there can be no discussion with liberal/progressives.
Notice that along with the crude language and violent out bursts every single leftist/progressive talking point is uttered.
While the likelihood of calm reasoned opinions wouldn't persuade either side there is no attempt by the seemingly Burger King employee to calmly state her position and then move on.
It's just simply outrage,violence and profanities.
Yet the leftist/progressives are constantly on the search for "conservative" or "Tea Party" domestic terrorists.
If they want to find domestic terrorists then they need to focus their magnifying glass on their own side.
They may have better success.

When Liberals Attack

I'm not a big fan of O'Reilly but I watched this segment he did with Kirsten Powers where he pretty much called out liberals for their faux concern for child illegals crossing the border unaccompanied.
Making the trek from central America is a long and arduous journey fraught with dangers.
Sexual exploitation and the very real possibility of death exists for them.

 I would think that if liberal/progressives were really so concerned about these children that they would be horrified by the dangers they are exposed to when making this kind of journey.
If they really cared so much it would seem to me that they would be lobbying Obama for medical and food aide to be sent to these children in their countries of origin as opposed to cheerleading them into making a hazardous dash to our border.
If they really cared about the children then they would be more interested in what's best for them as opposed to trying to cover Obama's ass for being a do nothing president.

Liberal Outrage of the Day

Like since when aren't liberals outraged.
There is not one criticism of Obama that isn't decried as "racist" by the party of perpetual outrage. That seems to be their go to accusation whenever anyone doesn't fall to their knees and worship the Obamessiah.

 July 4 Parade Features 'Obama Presidential Library' Outhouse Float
An Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Nebraska included a float depicting President Obama's presidential library as an outhouse, sparking outcry from residents as well as the state's Democratic Party.
The float, which did not identify its sponsor, featured an overall-clad dummy standing in front of an outhouse. Nailed to the structure were wooden signs reading "Obama Presidential Library".(picture at the link)
According to the Omaha World Herald and the Lincoln Journal Star, many Norfolk residents were upset by the float, with some decrying the display as a racist attack on the president.
“I’m angry and I’m scared,” Glory Kathurima, a Norfolk resident who is originally from Kenya, told the Journal Star. “This float was not just political; this was absolutely a racial statement.”
Kathurima says she wrote to the town's mayor as well as the Chamber of Commerce expressing her concerns with the float.
State party officials offered similar criticism.
“We have seen many times when Nebraskans disapproved of the President, but this clearly crosses the line.” Nebraska Democratic Party executive director Dan Marvin said in a Saturday statement. “There is a level of respect for the office of the Presidency which should not be crossed. It's beyond disappointing the City of Norfolk, it’s officials, and citizens would allow such a thing.”~snip~
Nothing like a little over the top hyperbole to get the outrage started by suggesting that the float invokes fear. But then again that's how liberal/commie/progressive roll.

Rick Perry vs. Martha Raddatz on Immigration

If there is one thing Washington and Obama are adamant about ignoring it's illegal immigration. Even the republicans are deaf to the wishes of their constituents when it comes to securing the borders and halting the flood of illegals into our communities.
So it's kind of refreshing to have a politician arguing for government to do just that. Of course that gives a liberal/commie/progressive media talking head an excuse to parrot whatever talking points Obama and his minions passed along to her network

The Liberal Media's Lies and Omissions

A lot of people believe that the despicable way the liberal/commie media distorts the news for their purposes is a relatively new thing. It's not, they have been doing it for at least as long as I've been alive and I remember the late 60's and early 70's and the way the Vietnam war and the troops were portrayed.
This is a great article on what we weren't told by the media.

Why is it that the American people rejected our troops who served in Vietnam? We know all about the protests not only against the war, but against those who served. Why were there no demonstrations of support? Why was there no welcome home parade? What if what we know about Americans’ lack of support for our troops in Vietnam is wrong?
Impressive evidence has been revealed showing what we thought we knew was wrong all along.
The media have a great deal of control over the events that we think about. We only know about current events that get reported. When events are omitted from the record, history is effectively changed. In the early 1970s we had only three national TV networks and a few newspapers that had a national reach. Today, the Internet is making it harder for important events to ignored. We can now read news from a vast number of outlets, both major and minor, from around the world.
The Internet is also permitting the collection and dissemination of historical material that was largely ignored outside of the local media during the Vietnam War. Americans’ patriotism did not wane during Vietnam, it was simply not widely reported. This collection of our forgotten history can be found at a new website sponsored by NCRP, the National Committee for Responsible Patriotism, a group that has been around for many years but more recently has been forgotten.~snip~
The biased progressive /liberal media picks and chooses the stories they report on nationally in order to deceive people into believing their side of a story. Like the near deification of Obama or a war on woman, support for gay marriage, rampant racism, class envy,illegal immigration. If their position can be distorted and presented as truth they will do it.
Unfortunately too many Americans, until recently, only had limited resources to find the truth.
Now with the internet and it's multitude of alternative news sources it's possible for people to see the lies and distortions of the biased media, they no longer have a monopoly.
Hopefully that will be enough to embarrass the media into becoming an unbiased source and not the propaganda arm of the democrat party.
Or they'll be relegated to the status of super market tabloids....where they belong.

Hows that 'Jobs Pivot' Working out?

Obama's done the job pivot thing so many times he should be falling down dizzy. According to the new jobs report for June things are looking up. We added 288,000 jobs and the unemployment rate dropped to 6.1%. As always I'm sure these will be revised in the next week or so but that doesn't stop some of Obama's cheerleaders from gushing over the news.
Of course they ignore the other side.

Record Number of Americans Not in Labor Force in June
( - The number of Americans 16 and older who did not participate in the labor force climbed to a record high of 92,120,000 in June, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
This means that there were 92,120,000 Americans 16 and older who not only did not have a job, but did not actively seek one in the last four weeks.
That is up 111,000 from the 92,009,000 Americans who were not participating in the labor force in April.
In June, according to BLS, the labor force participation rate for Americans was 62.8 percent, matching a 36-year low. The participation rate is the percentage of the population that either has a job or actively sought one in the last four weeks.
In December, April, May, and now June, the labor force participation rate has been 62.8 percent.
Before December, the last time the labor force participation rate sank as low as 62.8 percent was in February 1978, when it was also 62.8 percent. At that time, Jimmy Carter was president.~snip~
That reflects a huge number of Americans who have become so disillusioned and frustrated with job prospects that they have given up completely and as their unemployment benefits run out they just drop from sight. At least as far as being included in the jobs report.
I would think that anyone with a brain would know that employment prospects are pretty dismal and anyone who remembers the Carter years would be going through deja vu.
Things ain't as rosy as Obama's defenders want you to believe.
If you accept the spin then you won't believe your lying eyes.

Just a July 4th Reminder

Since the recent rise of the democrat party and their liberal/commie hangers on it's been a little hard to remember that the United States celebrates their independence on the fourth of July.
noun: independence
the fact or state of being independent.
synonyms: self-government, self-rule, home rule, separation, self-determination, sovereignty, autonomy, freedom, liberty
"the struggle for national independence"
self-sufficiency, self-reliance, autonomy, freedom, liberty
"he valued his independence"
We've have been slowly losing our independence to "diversity" and "social justice" for a few years but, unlike some Americans, I believe there are still enough true patriots out there to turn things around and get us back to true independence.
Independence from an over reaching and oppressive government to allow us to live our lives without the heavy hand of progressive liberal/communists interfering in our lives.

Romney Rerun?

A friend on facebook pointed me to this article

Politico Commentary: Strong Case for Romney 2016 White House Run
Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney insists he is not running for president for a third time, but a commentary in Politico Magazine argues he would have a reasonably good chance of pulling off the nomination for 2016.
The article was written by Emil Henry, former assistant treasury secretary under President George W. Bush. He campaigned for Romney in 2012.
Even though electoral history would suggest Romney's chances are slim, he has the advantage of being the de facto leader of the Republican Party, while no other candidate stands out in the crowded field of possible contenders, Henry wrote.
In addition, he wrote, Romney would be the only candidate in the last 50 years who wasn't a career politician.
Henry wrote this is relevant because voters' unhappiness with Obama is driven by a perception of incompetence. Romney would provide the desired contrast of someone who has experience from the business world of successfully executing initiatives.~snip~
Romney has indicated that he has no intention of running again, which I'm sure will be truly disappointing to the liberal/commie media because they won't be able to resurrect the knives they used against him in 2011.
But it got me to thinking about what the next republican nominee is going to be facing in 2015, especially if Hillary enters the race.
First the guy will be hobbled by the fact that he will be chosen by the RINO Rovian infested RNC who has already made it plain that Tea Party conservatives need not apply. He'll also be facing another round of the lickspittle media hyperventilating about electing another first.
The party that insipidly screams equality will pull the gender card out of the deck and play it for all it is worth.
The qualifications of either candidate will take a backseat to the constant refrain of shattering the glass ceiling. We run the real risk of electing another unqualified candidate to office for the simple reason of diversity.
I hope this time around most Americans will wise up enough to demand to know what kind of policies they'll be voting for.
Seeing as how most voted for "diversity" the last 2 times.
Because we now know what electing someone with no positions on anything has turned out.

The Danger of Facts vs Slogans

Some how there's been a disconnect between Americans making voting decisions based on politicians positions and explanations of how he or she plans to move the country and in what direction.
The consequence is that we end up regretting our choices.

Poll: Obama worst president since WWII
A plurality of voters think Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, a new poll says.
According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, 33 percent of voters think the current president is the worst since 1945.
Obama’s predecessor, former President George W. Bush, came in at second-worst with 28 percent, and Richard Nixon was in third place with 13 percent of the vote. After Jimmy Carter, who 8 percent of voters said was the worst president in the time period, no other president received more than 3 percent.~snip~
This is pretty sad, the fact that enough people fell for lines like no blood for oil, war on women, hope and change and binders full of women as opposed to actually demanding that Obama tell us why he was qualified to be POTUS.
The liberal/commie media is also to blame for amplifying democrat talking points as opposed to asking questions that we really needed the answers to.
 The good news is we still have 2 more years to wallow in our regrets.
