  1. “Is Barack Obama Dumb?”

    (A take off on the Politico story asking if Perry is dumb.)

  2. How about:

    “Damn! That Glenn Beck follows me everywhere! I can’t shake him.”

  3. How do you spell Jobs, Joe?

  4. I ain’t no stupid liar.
    April 10, 2010

    barky attended a soccer game that wasn’t scheduled in a crime ridden section of DC… just walked out of the House alone. How come?

    and his response:

    • I remember that the soccer game that wasn’t…and for him it was a Duhhh moment.. then he added to the lie, “Apparently I caused quite a problem,” adding something about his secretary not telling the Secret Service [Sure, blame the incompetent secretary. Did the Wizard meet him along the way to give him more instructions?]

      The Associated Press wrote that Obama “quietly breached years of protocol” by [ditching the press pool.].

      • yea, same exact weekend he couldn’t make it to Poland for the Funeral.

        I bet you he was just coming in from Friday night. Truth be known.

  5. What the hell is he burying now? In broad daylight, of course.

    • His real birth certificate that was in the bible his mother gave him. Do Unitarians believe in and use the Bible? Otherwise, where did communist mom come up with having to put important papers in a bible? Maybe he misspoke when he said bible. Isn’t the bible he was actually referring to Mein Kampf?

      • That’s funny. And a good question. Everything that’s said in that fictional ghostwritten fantasy autobiography has a purpose. This was likely to convey several layers of lies. He has a BC. His mother read the Bible. They’re CHRISTIANS. His father is BHO Sr. Poor little Barry felt sad that his “father” didn’t mention him in that news article from Hawaii. On and on. I don’t know much about Unitarians, but it seems more likely they’d use all religious texts, including Wicca. They’re into spiritualism, and lots of other things not ordinarily found in mainstream Christian religion. Touchy-feely, New Age stuff. I think. My impression, anyway. Aging hippie church.

    • Shovel ready.

  6. Governor Perry said in so many words that when our men and women go to war, they want to know that their Commander in Chief is an American!

    Since it was only a snip, he may have been talking about NATO, but then again, might he have been referring to BHO? My mouth dropped when he said it, and then without hearing the rest of the speech, I have to take a step back, or do I?

    • So you caught that one, too! So did I. And did you hear the Freudian slip from Romney? He said something about “other tyrants”! Both, I thought, were amusing, even if not what was intended by the out-of-context clips.

  7. The demonization of the Tea Party, the race baiting, the “mobilization” for the American Spring (and Fall) continues apace. Andre Carson, the SECOND Muslim member of Congress and member of the “exclusive” and, imho, racist Congressional BLACK Caucus, speaking to a mostly black audience in Miami said,

    “… some in Congress would “love to see us as second-class citizens” and “some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree.” Carson also said the tea party is stopping change in Congress, likening it to “the effort that we’re seeing of Jim Crow.””

    Upon being criticized, Carson’s spokesperson doubled down:

    “The Tea Party is protecting its millionaire and oil company friends while gutting critical services that they know protect the livelihood of African-Americans, as well as Latinos and other disadvantaged minorities,” Tomcsi wrote. “We are talking about child nutrition, job creation, job training, housing assistance, and Head Start, and that is just the beginning. A child without basic nutrition, secure housing, and quality education has no real chance at a meaningful and productive life.”

    • MSNBC’s Tamron Hall was sitting right there at the table when these remarks were made on August 22.

      She failed to report it.

      • Tamron Hall? Hmm. Not familiar with her. Let me guess … Black? Yup! So much for objectivity, although, to be fair, maybe in her mind there was nothing incendiary or unfair about Carson’s comments, so she didn’t think they were “newsworthy”. It’s a cultural thing, ya see. Relativity. Blindness might be another apt term. Or lack of freaking empathy or common sense.

        They reported in today’s newspaper about the manufactured crisis over the schedule for Barry’s jopsssss speech. What was interesting was HOW the lamestream reported it! I was surprised and a little pleasantly astounded. Excerpts:

        “In a new display of political gamesmanship, President Barack Obama on Wednesday invited himself to address a joint session of Congress…”

        “The president has said he will use the speech to demand that Congress approve his new agenda. If it does not, he’s said, he will take the issue to the people in the campaign.” [What? “Mobilize” a race war, coordinated by his Muslim and black peeps in the CBC? All from the post-racial POTUS!]

        Publicly inviting himself for a specific time and date was unusual, is not unprecedented. By comparison, the White House traditionally works behind the scenes with Congress to set the time and date …”

        “…the White House didn’t notify the House speaker of its request before releasing the letter to the media.”

        “Unfortunately, we weren’t even asked if that date worked for the House… We were simply informed that a letter was coming. It’s unfortunate that the White House ignored decades–if not centuries–of the protocol of working out a mutually agreeable date before making a public announcement.” (Said Brendan Buck, a spokesman for the House.)

        All true and I’m flabbergasted that the media reported the truth! Now Barry’s ended up agreeing to addressing Congress the next day, when the NFL season kicks off in Green Bay, against New Orleans. That will endear him to football fans. Is FOX carrying that game?

    • I’d forgotten that this is the same guy that accused the Tea Party of using the N word when they walked by. Breitbart offered a reward to anyone that had a video of the incident. No one produced it..Carson lied. How unusual. Now there are calls for Carson’s resignation. Yes, he needs to be dismissed …except then we get to pay him for leaving…as in a pension. (That needs to be changed..pension for life, not hardly.) Look what he says to Alan West.

      Carson gets heat for Tea Party remarks
      Updated: Aug 31, 2011 6:18 PM Snips

      It’s not the first time Carson has clashed with the Tea Party. He accused Tea Party members of using the N-word last year when he and other members of the Black Caucus passed on the way into the Capitol. The reference to lynchings, however, has prompted calls for an apology.

      Carson stands behind his remarks. He is in Los Angeles this evening where he will take part in another Congressional Black Caucus town hall meeting tonight.

      Rep. Carson reacted to calls for his resignation in a phone interview from Los Angeles where he’s taking part in another Congressional Black Caucus town hall tonight. He said, “I can’t apologize for speaking the truth, nor will I ever apologize for speaking the truth… I have a duty to speak boldly.”

      Florida Republican Congressman Allen West has threatened to quit the Congressional Black Caucus over Carson’s remarks. Said Rep. Carson, “No one in the organization will miss him.”

      • These black caucus members are creating racial tension within the black communities and they need to resign. The nation doesn’t need this kind of rhetoric that accuses their opposition of wanting to lynch them. They are doing this on purpose. Who is feeding them their talking points? That is the question. These aren’t leaders or morale builders, they are cowards in a suit and act like the neighborhood thugs they probably represent. “They are disgusting, despicable and desperate” according to Herman Cain.

  8. Open thread comment…

    If you’re looking for a new cell phone, check with me first. I may be able to save you money. For example, this month I helped two different people save money on a 4G Samsung Charge. I was able to help the friend who was renewing his Verizon contract get the phone for $129.98, and the friend who was new to Verizon (switching from T-Mobile) get the phone for $69.99. If you get the same phone from Verizon directly, they will charge you $299.99. So I was able to help two friends save $170 and $230, respectively. There are other phones and other carriers available, so just check with me before getting a new phone.

    • Did you quit your day job? 🙂 Thanks. We’ll keep this in mind. These days, I can’t afford a new anything! Thanks to Barry.

    • AT&T and T- Mobile and anti trust case with them- going on now Redpill. This is an odd time to buy phones for us. Let us keep an eye out on that one for a bit.

      • I was thinking about the government blocking that merger this morning. Is this payback to Google? Thinking along the lines of how Google is buying up or merging with other businesses, trying to venture into the phone/wireless internet area. I don’t follow the business news that closely, but read that some “competitors” opposed letting ATT merge with T-Mobile. So WHO are the competitors who complained? Follow the money. I read that if the merger is blocked, ATT will have to pay something like a $6 BILLION penalty to T-Mobile.

        • h/t Renee, who linked me to a story about this. It said Nextel’s stock went up when this “justice” dept. decision came out. Well, lookee here:

          “On May 7, 2008, Sprint Nextel announced it would merge its WiMAX wireless broadband unit with Clearwire, combining Sprint’s Xohm service with the Clearwire broadband network. Sprint will own a simple majority of the resulting company, with current Clearwire shareholders owning just over a quarter. A consortium of Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Intel, Google, and Bright House will invest $3.2 billion and own the balance.[21] The new firm will be called “Clear”. Both Sprint and Clear will run off of and have the same network. Whether Sprint will be a “MVNO” on Clear’s 4G network or have it considered Sprint’s native network, since it owns a majority of Clear, is unknown.”

          That’s from Wikipedia.

    • Bridgette expressed concern on the admin thread. I just wanted to check in with everyone publicly in response to my earlier comment. Yes, it’s really me and not spam. I am in business for myself and have several different business connections. One of those is a web-based (versus brick and mortar) provider of cell phones and cell plans via the major carriers. I’ve used this connection to save my family money on a cell phone for my 13-year-old and helped two different friends save a combined $400 as described above. I just wanted y’all to know about it, because if you are looking for a new phone, chances are I can save you money as long as you are either a new customer to that carrier or extending your contract. (I usually can’t save you money if you just need a replacement phone for one that was lost or damaged and are not renewing your contract).

      We did fine through Hurricane Irene. We did get some wind and rain, but we were far from the eye of the storm. Sorry I haven’t been more active here recently. All is well with my wife and kids, but I would appreciate prayers for my parents’ spiritual, physical, emotional, and relationship health.

      Red Pill

      • Glad to know it was you! Our prayers are with you and your family!

        • Mega-dittoes, Red Pill. Will pray for your family. Take care. There was some problem with the blog recently, so we got scared maybe you were phished. Is that the right word? Doesn’t matter. We know it’s you. Thanks for the offer. Will keep it in mind.

        • Thank you, Bridgette!

          One other thing about why I posted the comment about cell phones… I have another friend who had purchased a 4G Samsung Charge about a week before I told him, and he was upset that I hadn’t told him sooner because he paid $299.99 for the phone from Verizon, and he could have gotten it for $129.98 through my connection if I had told him about it a week earlier. He was literally mad that I hadn’t told him, so I decided to tell everyone I know…

  9. After making everyone wait for weeks, while he goes off to Martha’s Vineyard to golf, Barry’s finally going to announce his jopssss plan to a command-performance, joint session of Congress next week, but at the same time as the Republican debate! Carney says the timing is just “coincidence.” Sure. And the Pope’s Buddhist. And Barry’s Christian.

    The debate issue is interesting because it’s supposed to be carried by NBC and MSNBC, sponsors of the debate, along with Politico (which recently asked if Rick Perry is dumb, so I’m convinced the moderator will be totally objective. NOT!) In any case, as things stand, NBC would HAVE TO NOT cover Barry’s big jopsssss speech, or not cover the debate they’re hosting.

    Some suggest that Barry expects them to change the time of the debate, giving his speech as a lead-in to the debate. Of course, the NBC folks will then spend the entire debate asking the Republicans about Barry’s jopssss plan (which he’s probably stealing from Romney).

    Oh, yeah. Add another to the RULE by executive fiat list: no matter what the courts or Congress say, Barry’s administration uses the NLRB to remove the secret balloting in union elections. More payola for the unions. Buy more votes!

    • I love it when you say Jopssss Miri. It makes me laugh all day.

      • That’s how he says it, so that’s how I write it. Needless to say, I won’t be listening to or watching the new FDR-like jopsssss speech. I cannot stand to hear his lisping. It’s as if English is his second or third language or those false Hollywood caps don’t fit right.

    • Let’s see…the choices …Barry or watching the Packers vs the Saints? I just don’t know which one to choose. Blabbering boredom or thrills and excitement. Most people will have to flip a coin! I bet those teams are hoping he doesn’t make his picks public that night! isn’t he 0 for 42? Zero says it all, doesn’t it? Can’t wait to see the scores and Barry’s ratings!

      • They probably knew he’d get bad ratings no matter when he speaks, so they scheduled it so they can explain it all away.

        He already sent out the talking points. The lamestream (radio/tv, at least) dutifully report that Barry wishes that Congressional Republicans were more concerned about the jopssss crisis. Why? Because they asked for a ONE day delay of political gamesmanship, after BARRY put off the jopsss speech for weeks so he could golf on all three posh courses in Martha’s Vineyard! What a freaking hypocrite.

        He really is FULL of himself and so blind and tone deaf that it ceases to be amusing. Malignant narcissist.

        Will he use this opportunity to treat his hosts in Congress the way he treated his guests (SCOTUS) when they came to his first State of the Union address?

        He’ll be up there, hectoring his BETTERS (not even his equals) like a tinpot dictator like Chavez (or worse).

        They won’t Seig Heil or goosestep, which will only anger him more. “Let slip the mobilized dogs of race war.” God help us.

  10. Boehner’s letter in response to Obama’s request to address a joint session of Congress:

    I can’t copy and paste it and can’t find a transcription. btw, NBC said they’re NOT rescheduling the debate. So the ball’s in Barry’s court. Will he dribble? He lisps, so why not.

    • Love it that NBC won’t change their schedule for the president…oooh that is a slap in the face. Very special! Before they would do whatever and whenever he wanted. He got airtime, and blew hot air. He tried to rain on the parade of the Republicans Debate and it didn’t work…so far. Lots of scheduling for hundreds of people he is trying to trample on. Nor does Boehner want to change their schedule. I hear major quacking ? Is it duck season already?

      Miri, he didn’t play basketball…Barry was a disc jockey. That is why there are no real photos of him playing in high school. He probably was just a friggin bench warmer, and left the bench to change the music. No court time. That phony picture of him holding a ball sitting with a group of guys is just that..phony. He gets his kicks playing out his dream from whatever neighborhood he grew up in..with the NBA players who more than likely laugh behind his back. They know a no talent guy when they play the game. They humor him.

  11. I say, How Dare They? Continuing to ramp up the racist divide. The Congressional Black Caucus stands for racial and ideological division not the Tea Party. Statements like this are downright lies! They line up with Maxine, Jessee Jackson, and Al Sharpton…when will the Blacks get some new spokespeople?

    Here is one. Alan West – May leave the Progressive Black Caucus (he thought he might to talk some sense into them!) for demeaning the Tea Party! Standing up for Liberty!

    Members of the PROGRESSIVE, RACIST, Black Caucus accused the Tea Party movement of wanting to lynch black Americans. Allen West, as he usually does, said precisely what needed to be said, in the most diplomatic way that was reasonably appropriate for the situation.

  12. You will love this information! I am serious! Democrats are in for a real surprise in their election pockets. Trumka wants to mirror the tea party so he is starting his own! It will be complete with all the communist propaganda they can muster, and all the SEIU thugs they can gather! Yes, union members, look what you are going to be supporting whether you like it or not! We missed this reporting. It should have been headline news!

    • Angry Unions Sever Ties With Democrats, Obama
      Thursday, 25 Aug 2011

      In a huge public blow to the electoral fortunes of both President Obama and the Democratic Party, the president of the AFL-CIO said Thursday that organized labor is preparing to ditch Democrats and go it alone in building up its own grassroots structure.

      Specifically, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka told reporters that the nation’s largest labor federation will scale back their involvement with the Democratic Party in advance of the 2012 elections.

      In 2008, unions spent over $400 million for Obama’s election. Asked if the AFL’s move is a huge blow to Obama, Democratic pollster Doug Schoen told Newsmax.TV: “Absolutely. Obama needs to get labor back and I think he’ll be courting them furiously in the weeks and months to come.”

      While Trumka had nothing but scathing words for the tea party movement, he laid out a scenario that very much mirrored the tea party’s grassroots structure and its clout in the GOP.

      Trumka made it clear that his plan will cost the Democrats both contributions and labor volunteers in many districts almost immediately. That would cripple key Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts in many swing districts on Election Day.

      • That’s why the NLRB is changing the rules for union organizing, getting rid of the secret ballot in elections. So unconstitutional, but who cares? That’s how the unions get their money–mandatory union dues, whether you’re in the union or not.

  13. Is this the 21st century? I thought so, but apparently there’s at least one MO-RON at J.C. Penney who thought this was a good idea:

    A girl’s shirt that says, “I’m too pretty to do homework, so my brother has to do it for me.”

    Nice. They pulled the shirt AFTER complaints. DUH! It’s offensive on SO many levels. Let me guess at the age and sex of the MO-RON who designed this.

  14. White House commemorates 9/11 by deleting Al Qaeda mentions
    Aug. 30

    The White House is planning ahead for the 10th anniversary of the worst terror attack in U.S. History — the September 11, 2001 attacks in NYC, PA, and Washington, DC. Those attacks, of course, happened in the United States and were perpetrated by radical Muslim terrorists – but that’s not stopping the WH from urging officials to “minimize references to Al Qaeda” and calling for remembrance of all those killed across the globe. Huh? The White House has provided guidelines to government officials regarding how to observe and discuss the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. [They need guidelines from the WH? How about if the WH sticks it where the sun don’t shine? That is the guideline according to Bridgette!]

    • Mention those Killed across the globe…you gotta be kidding! Does the Left really think they can erase what happened on 9/11? Did you also hear that no religious comments will be made at the Memorial service in NY? Someone might get offended. Do you believe this crap? Time for a real American to take Bloomberg’s place. Who is he pandering to? Why is he supporting having the mosque apply for FEDERAL FUNDING to build their victory mosque? Don’t mention Al Qaeda..they might hate us more? I swear we have some of the biggest dumb donkeys running things.

      • How to TALK about it. Now they want to instruct us how to SPEAK. IF they allow us to speak. They can shove it where the sun don’t shine. As you said. I second THAT emotion.

  15. “We need to make sure we’re speaking to a very broad set of audiences who will be affected by the anniversary,” Benjamin J. Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser, said in a telephone interview on Friday.

    NO, we need to speak to We the PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES AS WE ARE THE ONES WHO WERE AFFECTED. US. We the People of the USA. Not an “broad set of audiences.” Asshats.

  16. I can’t believe my eyes, by George.

    The Missing Village Idiot? Casper the Friendly Ghost?

    What George? Do tell!

  17. Sounds like an ODINGA plan. Stirring up race wars to get elected ?
    No way this will work. Good Americans of all colors will reject this. They do not like being used.

    • Maybe the Odinga plan was BARRY’S plan all along–just previewed it in Kenya first, to see how it turned out. Turned out well for his cousin Raila, not so good for the hundreds burned alive in that church.



    “Half of Americans drink a soda or sugary beverage each day — and some are downing a lot.

    One in 20 people drinks the equivalent of more than four cans of soda each day, even though health officials say sweetened beverages should be limited to less than half a can.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the figures Wednesday in a report said to be the government’s first to offer national statistics for both adults and kids. …Wednesday a coalition of 100 organizations announced a new push. The effort includes the American Heart Association and the some city health departments who plan to prod companies to stop the sale of sugary drinks on their property or providing them at business meetings — as Boston’s Carney Hospital did in April. There will also be new media campaigns. … [M]embers of the coalition argue that parents shouldn’t drink sweetened beverages, so they don’t serve as a poor example at home. They hope drinking soda will become as unfashionable as smoking.” [They also want to “prod” places into REMOVING and BANNING vending machines, thereby putting out of jobs all the people who service them or make the products.]

    Mind your own freaking business! We are FREE people. Free to eat and drink what we want. Free to make our own choices what to stick in our mouths. Free to run businesses and make a living SELLING what people WANT.

    Get a life! Your own life! Run that and leave us alone!

    • Miri relax ! LOL ! These are the same people that have no concept of even how to balance their checkbooks.
      Next on the agenda will be how to give new, fruit juice machine business to all of their friends and relatives and get kick backs.
      It is the same old story. In real estate fraud they call it churning.

      • I just get so tired of these people. They want to run everybody’s life. To micromanage everyone’s life. To make everyone live according to their standards. How about if we all decide, as a majority, to force feed THEM white potatoes. Would that fly? Busybodies get on my LAST nerve. Mind your own beeswax. That’s what my momma said. Life is like a box of chocolates–eat them! Remember what the dormous said: Feed your head! 🙂

      • Yea, like Pepsssssssssico


    Judicial Watch is suing the in”Justice” Dept. again. This time over refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act.


    Laugh of the day! Wikileaks is complaining about their archives being “compromised” by people who have the password to their STOLEN records!

    “Anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks said today that its massive archive of unredacted U.S. State Department cables had been exposed in a security breach it blamed on its one-time partner, Britain’s Guardian newspaper.

    In a 1,600-word-long editorial posted to the Internet, WikiLeaks accused the Guardian’s investigative reporter David Leigh of divulging the password needed to decrypt the files in a book he and another Guardian journalist, Luke Harding, published earlier this year.

    WikiLeaks said in its statement that Leigh had “recklessly, and without gaining our approval, knowingly disclosed the decryption passwords” in a nonfiction book about the organization published by the Guardian back in February. …
    In its statement, WikiLeaks said that knowledge of the leaked password had been spreading privately for months, but that the organization was forced to come out with a statement today after news of the breach began spilling into the press.

    In Washington, the State Department did not immediately respond to a call seeking comment.

    U.S. officials have previously said WikiLeaks’ disclosures could have potentially serious consequences for informers, activists and others quoted in the cables.”

    Did you catch that crucial word? ACTIVISTS …quoted in the cables. ACTIVISTS! What ACTIVISTS?


    Even if it’s not true, it’s funny to see the cover page and think about everybody who’ll see it in supermarkets, gas stations, and convenience stores this weekend! Arpaio investigating Barry’s bogus BC.

  23. JW Uncovers Documents from DHS Detailing Obama Plan to Impose DREAM Act by Suspending Illegal Alien Deportations

    Records Show Obama Administration Began to Implement Provisions of the DREAM Act Rejected by Congress;
    DHS Official: “And we wonder why ppl [people] FOIA us.”

    Washington, DC — September 1, 2011 Snips

    Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents from the Obama Department of Homeland Security (DHS) detailing behind-the-scenes efforts by the Obama administration to bypass Congress and grant amnesty at least one million illegal aliens by suspending immigration deportation proceedings against “DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) Act kids” and other illegal aliens. The records include internal DHS strategic documents, as well as extensive email communications within the DHS and with the Obama White House. The documents were obtained by Judicial Watch as a result of two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits filed on March 29, 2011

    • “These documents show the Obama administration is lying about its stealth amnesty activities and its alarming contempt for Congress and the rule of law. Frankly, these documents show that Obama immigration officials don’t even know what the law is!

      The Obama administration cannot simply pick and choose which federal immigration laws it will enforce. In its zeal to curry favor with the illegal alien lobby and secure Hispanic votes for a second term, the Obama administration is exercising raw executive power to change the law by granting illegal aliens amnesty in a way that strikes at the heart of our constitutional system and the rule of law. This is a festering constitutional crisis,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

    It IS true. Here’s WND’s article….


    The Internal Revenue Service allowed undocumented workers to collect $4.2 billion in refundable tax credits last year, a new audit says, almost quadruple the sum five years ago.

    Although undocumented workers are not eligible for federal benefits, the report released Thursday by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration concludes that federal law is ambiguous on whether these workers qualify for a tax break based on earned income called the additional child tax credit.

    Taxpayers can claim this credit to reduce what they owe in taxes, often getting refunds from the government. The vagueness of federal law may have contributed to the $4.2 billion in credits, the report said.

    The IRS said it lacks the authority to disallow the claims.

    Wage earners who do not have Social Security numbers and are not authorized to work in the United States can use what the IRS calls individual taxpayer identification numbers. Often these result in fraudulent claims on tax returns, auditors found.”

    Uncle Omar got a refund, his boss said. What SS# did Omar use?

  26. And those slaps just keep on comin’! Love the last paragraph!

    Five NASCAR Drivers Decline President Obama’s White House Invitation
    Sept 1

    President Barack Obama will honor NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and the 11 other Chase drivers from last year in a White House ceremony on Wednesday – but nearly half of the 2010 playoff contenders won’t be there. NASCAR said Thursday that five drivers – Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart – will not be attending the White House visit due to “schedule conflicts.”

    They must be very busy people. Regardless of one’s political views, the president is still the president – and an opportunity to speak with the leader of the free world is a rare and special one.

  27. Jobs Report just in time for Mr. Lame Duck to give his recipe for jobs creation…at the end of 3 years, you’d think he’d already done something to fix it if he had an answer. He didn’t fix it, because this is what the Marxists economy that isn’t working. People understand…this is what they intended to do, this isn’t by mistake or ignorance. It is intentional!


    This is the first time since 1945 that there has been zero growth! ZERO GROWTH! The Marxists are drinking their champagne!

    Unemployment they say is 9.1%… and that is another lie!

    • Silence is golden
      This time, Obama skips a statement

      09/02/11 1:30 PM Updated: 09/02/11 4:56 PM

      It’s rare that President Obama doesn’t make some sort of statement on the one day each month that the jobs report comes out, but that’s what happened today.

      But not helping the optics is Obama’s decision to leave for the weekend for Camp David. He was scheduled to leave at 10 a.m. and rescheduled for 12:30 p.m. after the report was released, giving a big enough window to prepare a statement if he wanted to make one.

      • Perfect Timing for the Duck! He isn’t quacking today about the Jobs Report. Nope. He is so tired from listening to hurricane information that he needs a rest. After all he didn’t get his full vacation days in…he had to leave a day early to flee the storm. Those FEMA reports were so tough to handle, that he needs another resbit. He’s off to his retreat! He needs to rest up to give that speech next week that no one wants to hear. Hey, don’t be so hard on the guy, after all it was bad weather and he didn’t get in all the rounds of golf that he needed. He deserves it. Camp David is lovely this time of year, and that WH is so confining.

        • It was so “taxing” to have to deal with news about “distant” relative Uncle Omar that Barry needs ANOTHER break. Poor baby. He needs his rest. He’s earning every one of those gray hairs, or so Michelle tells us.

      • There’s that word again. Optics. It’s the new “gravitas”. Talking points. Spin.

  28. A Common Sense Definition of a “Citizen” and a “Natural Born Citizen”
    Mario Apuzzo, Esq.
    September 1, 2011 Snip

    If putative President, Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii, he can be a Fourteenth Amendment born “citizen of the United States.” But because he was not born to a father and mother who were both U.S. citizens when he was born (he was born to a father who was a British citizen), he is not and cannot be a “natural born Citizen.” He is therefore not eligible to be President and Commander in Chief.

  29. Now this is a fine example of work produced by the excellent, salaried journalists in Ohio! This is quality news. Again, THIS IS IMPORTANT NEWS PEOPLE!

    3,000 Pair of Panties Found Along Ohio Highway

    The case of the multiplying skivvies has everyone baffled. The panties look like they were dumped in bags from local discount and grocery stores, and were also taken out of the packaging.

    Deputy Hummel had the task of collecting the evidence.
    It took about two hours.,0,4089405.story

    Whew, at least they were clean. I thought this was a daily count by county highway cleanup crews. I hope they donated them. Identify your drawers and they are yours!

  30. Illustrious Leaders crown begins in mid portion of the back of his pinhead.

    • Now that is new…usually they use a stain or something to cover it. And it crosses the back of his head …how weird is that. I should add this to the Scar photos.

      Do you think it is a secret message? Anyone read scalp or hair?

      • I think the message is that his head shows evidence of it being split opened and stitched up. Wonder if he was in a motorcycle accident or something when he was a youngster.

        • I vote for motorcycle accident. But he also fell out of the mango tree. And somebody bashed him in the head, too. Remember? He had an “egg-sized” lump on the side of his noggin. Wasn’t that the story?

        • Oh sure, I can imagine him in leathers driving a motorcycle! He is such a cool dude.

      • Really. Does it have any specific morphological meaning? My crown is on top my head. How about you? Does he have a cleft chin? I was thinking about Ruth’s the other day and how that tends to be inherited.

  32. Who attempted to down Marine One?

    • Obama‘s Marine One Forced to Land Due to ’Bad Weather’ in…Good Weather?


        People are wondering who he had to meet this time.

        Just like the lie he went to his daughter’s soccer game even though there wasn’t one.

        Who is in Frederick, MD?

        • ” The pool would normally accompany any bad weather motorcade to the retreat.” That’s from the link Kathy gave us. Talking about the MEDIA pool that would NORMALLY go along with a motorcade. They knew about the bad weather before they got on Marine One. So where did the motorcade go, exactly, before winding up at Camp David?

          From the weaselzippers story: “Because it is customary practice that the traveling press pool is included whenever the president uses a motorcade, reporters naturally wondered why the pool was not part of the trip or even informed that the president would use a motorcade ahead of time.

          Meanwhile, CNN’s weather team found no signs of stormy weather in the area at the time Marine One departed the White House.”

          Sounds as if the media is miffed. Sounds as if, once again, ditching the media. They had to KNOW in advance they’d land in Frederick and take a motorcade because the motorcade was there, waiting.

    • Interesting..

      he’s such a sneak that that angle never even occurred to me.

      the thing, though, if nefarious people were planning an attack on the helicopter, what prevents them from attacking a motorcade. Which they assembled very quickly, btw.

      His daughter does comes in handy whenever he needs a beard.

      • I guess BO and MO no longer travel together. Instead they take separate planes or cars to their destination at taxpayer expense. Where is MO spending her weekend?

        I am sure some investigative journalist will get to the bottom of this story.

  33. this photo looks strange to me.

    • Her purse is bigger than she is and it looks almost empty. The guy saluting looks anything but happy. Funny. Another story showed him with MO, heading for the chopper. So did she go with them or not?

  34. Here’s the Philly New Black Panther that Eric Holder chose to defend even though he is on tape threatening voters in the General Election.

    Remember: kill the cracker babies? well, he wasn’t blowing smoke.

    Taxed Enough Already Party members are racist, dangerous terrorists, though.


  35. Feds sue biggest U.S. banks over risky mortgages
    Sept. 2 Snips

    NEW YORK (AP) — In a sweeping move, the government on Friday sued 17 financial firms, including the largest U.S. banks, for selling Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac billions of dollars worth of mortgage-backed securities that turned toxic when the housing market collapsed.

    Among the 17 targeted by the lawsuits were Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., JP Morgan Chase & Co., Goldman Sachs.

    The lawsuits were filed Friday by the Federal Housing Finance Agency which oversees Fannie and Freddie, the two agencies that buy mortgages loans and mortgage securities issued by the lenders.

    The total price tag for the securities bought by Fannie and Freddie affected by the lawsuits: $196 billion.

    The 17 institutions are Ally Financial Inc., formerly known GMAC LLC, Bank of America Corp., Barclays Bank PLC, Citigroup Inc., Countrywide Financial Corp., Credit Suisse Holdings Inc., Deutsche Bank AG, First Horizon National Corp., General Electric Co., Goldman Sachs & Co., HSBC North America Holdings Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Merrill Lynch & Co. and its unit First Franklin Financial Corp., Morgan Stanley, Nomura Holding America Inc., The Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC, and Societe Generale.

    • Heard a financial analyst say that Freddie and Fannie are as to blame. They forced the banks to make the loans, with the help of “activists” and not-for-profits and people like Jesse Jackson. But the most important point he made was that if the banks have to cough up huge settlements, it will take away money that they can no longer loan out, so it will negatively affect the economy. But here’s my guess: Barry wants the settlement to fund his “infrastructure bank” that will give loans to the HIS preferred peeps (read, minority contractors) who will then skim off a share before they use what’s left to build shoddy roads and bridges and other “infrastructure”. Part of his infrastructure includes giving Wi-Fi access to the entire country and then he’ll use our money to give IPADs, IPods, and laptops to “the poor”. Redistribution. Extortion. Third World country, here we come.

  36. Border ‘Incursion’: Why Did Mexican Federal Police ‘Momentarily’ Cross Into U.S. Amid Gunfire?..
    Sept. 3 Snips

    KTSM-TV: A national watchdog group says the Mexican Government incursion that happened just a few miles outside of El Paso could be a major security threat to the nation.

    KVIA-TV: EL PASO, Texas — Border Patrol officials are investigating an incursion by Mexican federal police into the United State on Thursday morning.
    U.S. Border Patrol spokesman Doug Mosier said armed officers with Mexico’s Secretaria de Seguridad Publica federal police were in the incursion, which took place in El Paso, near the Border Patrol’s Ysleta station.

    The Mexican government, Border Patrol and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are investigating the incident. U.S. authorities responded to the incident.

    An ABC-7 viewer contacted the station early Thursday, saying her son, husband and friends were hunting on the Rio Grande levy on the U.S. side when men on the Mexico side fired shots, narrowly missing them. She said more men on the Mexico side drove up with automatic weapons and into to U.S. side. She said the armed men fired weapons and stole hunters’ chairs and drove back into Mexico.

    • These incidents seem to be happening more and more often where Mexican officials are crossing the border. I read an article yesterday that says the group that supports La Raza expects to take back their land from the US within the next two years. I can’t find what I was reading, but blood shed is expected. If someone comes across the article, please post.
