Media Bias Infects the Fashion Police, Too! (Open Thread)

© Miri WTPOTUS September 30, 2012

Yahoo! headlined this story on their front page today:

Ann Romney commits odd fashion faux pas

The would-be first lady wears a questionable wardrobe choice on a late-night show.

When you click that link, you get a page entitled “OMG!” and then, under the title, “What Were They Thinking?!”, is this:

Ann Romney, whose hubby, Mitt, is running to become the next president of the United States, left her campaign-trail cardigan at home while making an appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Wednesday. Instead, Romney sported an odd black tiered leather skirt (although it looked a little more like pleather) and matching jacket, along with a pair of lacy heels. Perhaps her next stop was a biker bar?

That’s the outfit at the top of the post.  The one that Yahoo! characterizes as an “odd fashion faux pas” and inappropriate, in their opinion, for this lady to wear on LATE-NIGHT TV.  What’s odd about her outfit?  She looks great. If she can carry it off and, imho, she can, more power to her.  Notice the “biker bar” slam?  Imagine anything remotely like that being said about Michelle Obama.  Or the backhanded snark about her cardigans.

Now let’s compare and contrast that story to a relatively recent one written after Michelle Obama appeared on Nickelodeon, a television channel for children.  On a page entitled “Glitterazzi, Where Pop Meets Power”, and under the heading “First Lady Michelle Obama Rocks Youthful Sparkles At Kids’ Choice Awards”, came this:

Holy FLOTUS mamacita!

Michelle Obama might’ve been presenting an award at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards, but she definitely takes home the award for most stunningly stylish.

If you thought the First Lady couldn’t pull off skinny jeans, then you are absolutely wrong. Michelle flaunted her flawless legs in a pair of Helmut Lang foil wash jeans, and completed the look with a Wes Gordon metallic houndstooth jacket and pointy black stilettos.

Michelle attended the awards to present Taylor Swift with the “Big Help Award” for all of her amazing charitable efforts.

We really thought we loved seeing the FLOTUS in her trademark preppy dresses — but, now, we are totally into this FLOTUS rockstar looks!

Here’s the outfit:

So what’s the diff here?  Do you read any snarky comments about “biker bars”?  Michelle seems to be channeling rock stars, so do you see any suggestions that her next stop might be a Cher concert? Or is that outfit more appropriate for a disco?  You be the judge.

There’s no mention in the first story about Ann’s “flawless legs” or her many “amazing charitable efforts,” which include giving $4 million to charity last year!

Are they making an ageist statement here?  Is it a faux pas for Ann to wear that youthful outfit on late-night TV, but okay for Michelle to wear an inappropriate, “questionable,” somewhat trashy and ill-fitting outfit on children’s TV, because Michelle is younger?

I don’t think they want to go there.  Is this a WAR ON SIXTY-SOMETHINGS?  If it’s good enough for Tina Turner, who’s seventy-something,  it’s appropriate for Ann Romney.   They just don’t like it when Republicans “appropriate” their techniques for connecting with people.  Do they have something against bikers, btw?

We’ve noticed since the beginning of the Obamanation, that the media falls all over itself to declare Michelle a fashion icon.

When Michelle wears shoes that cost hundreds of dollars, or dresses that cost thousands, there is NO mention of her wealth or the inappropriateness of wearing expensive clothing while others suffer during this recession/depression. However, whenever Ann wears expensive outfits, the media never fail to point out the cost or their perception of inappropriateness.

This is nothing new. Remember how they excoriated Sarah Palin for buying a wardrobe to campaign in, as if Hillary Clinton didn’t do the same?

Republican women=fashion faux pas.

Democrat women=fashion plates.

The mendacity of the media knows no bounds.

  1. New open thread!

  2. The fashion police have been trying to tell us for 4 years that Michelle is a fashion plate while wearing the most God awful outfits ever seen on a first lady i.e., the bust belt. They have even tried to get us to change our perception on beauty telling us what a beautiful horse she is. Hopefully, she will become the last first lady very shortly. If ugly is beautiful, then pretty is now ugly in their warped progressive dictionary. So we certainly can’t expect them change their stripes. Did we ever see an OMG for MO’s clothing? How about that gem of a dress that was made of material that matched a couch. Or I remember the gold ensemble with pea green gloves and shoes when the conman was sworn in…

    • Beautiful horse! HA! Remember the meme about her “buff” arms, as if they’re to die for? Talk about making a silk purse out of a sow …

  3. Just used the two pics, side-by-side, and posted on facebook with: “. . . With all the jokes and trashing of Ann Romney’s outfit on late night tv…..who is dressed more appropriately FOR THE OCCASION, Ann going to a late night talk show where the normal dress up is evening wear, or Michelle dressed for a children’s show?”

  4. To see what the slimey, despicable Left is up to regarding Ann Romney – this article will show you the direction they plan to take in the next month. We knew things would turn ugly, but these people are swarming and coming right out of the nearest sewers. Do read the whole article to get the full impact of their mindset.

    Daily Kos:”Ann Romney thinks she’s suffered? Let’s make her suffer”
    by Gary P Jackson
    September 29, 2012

    The people who write for the Daily Kos [as well as their readers] have always been sewer dwellers, gutter trash. But Kos is still one of the leading democrat websites, and democrats still flock the the annual “Kos Klan Rally” known as Netroots Nation.

    Remember, it was Kos founder Marcos Moulitsas who targeted Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords as a “sell-out” and put a bull’s-eye on her before the Tuscon massacre in 2011, and Kos writer “Blu Boy” declared “CongressWOMAN Giffords Voted Against Nancy Pelosi! And Is Now DEAD To Me!” a mere 48 hours before left-wing nut job Jarred Lee Loughner’s assault on Giffords.

    So it should come as no surprise that the vile and disgusting animals at Kos are now attacking Ann Romney, a cancer survivor who also suffers from MS. Writer Kaili Joy Gray has penned a particularly hateful screed in which she wants to make Ann Romney suffer more, and they are raising money to do it:

    Hell to Pay: Ann Romney thinks she’s suffered? Let’s make her suffer (metaphorically)

    .Welcome to this week’s extra special edition of Hell to Pay. We’re raising money for Daily Kos-endorsed women candidates for the House and Senate, because it’s time to send more, better women to Congress to kick some ass, take some names, fight back against the Republican War on Women—and maybe even shrink some penises with their feminism.

    I’ve come to realize that liberalism isn’t just an ideology of hate and destruction, it’s an ideology that simply isn’t compatible with civilized society. The goals of liberalism are certainly not compatible with America’s founding principles. We defeated the Nazis and the Soviet Union. We must defeat liberalism as well. It’s the only way America will survive.

    • “I’ve come to realize that liberalism isn’t just an ideology of hate and destruction, it’s an ideology that simply isn’t compatible with civilized society.” Since you mention civilized socity, I offer this quote in response; although it is referring to Islam, by Bruce Bawer, author of “Surrender – appeasing Islam, Sacrificing Freedom”

      “The question before us is this: Do we love our freedoms as much as they hate them? At least one thing seems certain: against people who are ready to die in the the cause of destroying freedom, people who are unwilling to speak up for freedom for fear of being called a racist or Islamophobe don’t stand much chance of victory. Many free people, also, have become so accustomed to freedom, and to not having to stand up for it, that they’re simply incapable of defending it when it’s imperiled — or even, in some cases, of recognizing that it is imperiled. And there seems to be a corollary problem: that the more civilized a civilization gets, the harder it is for some of its most civilized members to recognize that there is, in fact, such a thing as barbarism; and that most of those who do recognize this fact consider it uncivilized to say so.”

    • But, but, but. All the lamestream stories continue the daily drumbeat: Barry’s winning. 80% chance he’ll be reelected. He’s closing on the electoral votes he needs (but simultaneously, they’re beginning the meme against the electoral college, how unfair it is, but, alas, it’s in the Constitution).

      DON’T BELIEVE THEM. THEIR GOAL IS TO DISPIRIT YOU, TO MAKE YOU BELIEVE THE BATTLE’S LOST ALREADY, SO YOU DON’T VOTE.

      The undecideds have not yet decided. Historically, no matter the situation, they go AGAINST THE INCUMBENT. This is a historic situation, though. The WORST ECONOMY SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION. THE HIGHEST DEBT AND DEFICIT IN HISTORY, MOST ACCUMULATED UNDER BARRY. How do you think the undecided will decide?

  9. Well, one difference in what the person wearing is this, Ann can pull off what she’s wearing and really looks good in it. And it’s a different occasion.

    The other is this, no matter what Moochelle wears, she still appears as Moochelle and gross. I’m still wondering if she’s a he. Something about Moo doesn’t seem like a she.

  10. Ann Romney is a leader of class, not trash, and the liberal’s hate that fact. They are trying too be-little Ann just like they did Sarah Palin. The liberal media woman need too pull their jock strap’s outtta their asses and the liberal media men need too pull their panties out from what used too be their balls and get a life!

    Brown approves driver’s licenses for young undocumented immigrants

    September 30, 2012

    The governor signed a bill Sunday that will let hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants qualify for California driver’s licenses.

    Young people would qualify if they are accepted by a federal program giving work permits to those who came to this country before they were 16 and are now 30 or younger.

    As many as 350,000 undocumented immigrants in California may be eligible for the Obama administration program, which waives the threat of deportation for two years for those who have no criminal record.

    Brown spokesman Gil Duran said that by issuing the driver’s licenses, the state will merely be adhering to the new federal rules imposed by the White House.

    “Gov. Brown believes the federal government should pursue comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship,” Duran said. “President Obama has recognized the unique status of these students, and making them eligible to apply for driver’s licenses is an obvious next step.”

    The state Department of Motor Vehicles has concluded the federal program appears to confer a status on undocumented immigrants that would qualify them for licenses, but the bill by Assemblyman Gilbert Cedillo (D-Los Angeles) clarifies that any papers issued by the federal program are sufficient to get a license.

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/california-politics/2012/09/drivers-licenses-undocumented-immigrants-1.html

    • Bill AB 2189 was sponsored by California Assembly member Gil Cedillo a democrat.

      His snipped Wiki –

      Cedillo grew up in the Boyle Heights area of Los Angeles.

      Cedillo attended Lorena Street and Euclid Avenue Elementary, Stevenson Junior High and Roosevelt High where he met and became close friends with Antonio Villaraigosa, now Mayor of Los Angeles.

      Cedillo failed the bar exam (Obviously)

      Career – Private sector

      Cedillo worked for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Los Angeles County’s largest union, where he served as general manager from 1990 to 1996. In his years as general manager, he protected youth programs and played a critical role in securing $364 million in federal assistance to ensure that the Los Angeles County Health Care system remained afloat. President Bill Clinton stated that his decision to provide funding “was reached after critical consultations with SEIU”.

      Politics

      Cedillo won a special election on January 13, 1998, to the California State Assembly’s 46th district, and served there until 2002. In 2002, he was elected to the State Senate. While he is most widely known for his attempts to reinstate driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants and as the author of the California DREAM Act, Cedillo has also worked on increasing and expanding access to health care, developing regional solutions to combat homelessness, and encouraging economic development in his Downtown Los Angeles district. Gil Cedillo is a member of the Council of La Raza.

      Congressional candidate

      Cedillo officially announced his candidacy for the 32nd Congressional District seat on January 8, 2009, which was vacated by Congresswoman Hilda Solis. Congresswoman Solis accepted an appointment from President-elect Barack Obama for United States Labor Secretary.[5] Cedillo lost to Judy Chu, a former Monterey Park assemblywoman and vice-chairman of the State Board of Equalization. Despite Cedillo’s longtime relationship with organized labor, the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, voted to endorse Chu.[6] Cedillo received a majority of other major endorsements, including eight members of California’s Congressional Delegation, LA Sheriff Lee Baca,

      I got too LA Sheriff Lee Baca and it made me think of something that I’ve read before about Lee Baca…found it!

      CAIR: Muslim Homeland Security Group Commends LA Sheriff for Supporting Engagement with American Muslims

      Posted 3/19/2010

      (LOS ANGELES, CA, 3/18/10) — The Muslim American Homeland Security Congress (MAHSC) today commended Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca for his courageous and principled stand in support of mainstream American Muslims and their organizations, and for his rejection of attempts to marginalize the Islamic community.

      At a Wednesday hearing of the House Committee on Homeland Security, Sheriff Baca testified:

      “Americans, particularly elected officials, should not claim Islam supports terrorism. This is counter-productive to trust. It plays into the terrorist strategy that the West is against Islam. At this time in our history, with billions of dollars being spent on a war against terror, our nation should ask that all Americans follow President Obama’s example and be the instrument of goodwill to Muslims throughout the world.

      “It is my belief that the average American has the potential to be our best ambassador of goodwill. However, senators, members of congress, governors, mayors, boards of supervisors, sheriffs, police chiefs, scholars, scientists, and laborers and their leaders must set the example with a desire to visit mosques and communicate with Muslims, worldwide, in the quest of better understanding Islam. Extremists are what they are, but they cannot thrive or survive in a world that is not indifferent.”

      SEE: House Committee on Homeland Security Hearing

      During the hearing, Rep. Mark Souder (R-Indiana) raised doubts about Sheriff Baca’s support for Israel and questioned him about his working relationship with one of the leading American Muslim organizations, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and his attendance at 10 CAIR fundraisers.

      Sheriff Baca responded: “And I’ll be there 10 more times.”

      Just say’in 😉 just one of my….2+2=4 moment’s!

      • Good connecting of the dots, Leza. So is Baca the guy disappearing Youssef/Nakoula? (with all these names, it will be just that much harder for people to track him).

        • Thank you Miri and Papoose. I think Nakoula was used as a tool from the communist/Islamist manufacturing Company, that’s what I think.

          • Me, too. I kinda of thought that from the start. Now I wonder where he is? Whoops. The Pakistanis have a $200,000 bounty on his head.

    • Great investigative reporting, as always, Leza.

      As many as 350,000 undocumented immigrants in California may be eligible for the Obama administration program, which waives the threat of deportation for two years for those who have no criminal record.

      and this is just in California.
      ~
      undocumented immigrants = illegal alien trespassers; foreign tools

      • Motor Voter, as Leza points out, gives them voter registration. I asked from the beginning: Will the feds allow local election boards to cross check voters against the database of “dreamers” (aka illegal alien trespassers)? With the election boards in the hands of DemoncRATS, with the boards stacked with FAKE Republican members, and with Soros’s Secretary of State project, they will vote (as illegals have been voting for years) and they might decide OUR ELECTION: ILLEGAL ALIENS MIGHT DECIDE THE ELECTION. This is why Obama was in such a hurry to get those licenses into their hands before the election. And under Eric Holder, will any of them be prosecuted even IF they’re caught illegally voting? I can see the excuses now: They thought the “papers” gave them the right to vote, too. Slap on the wrist but their votes will count. Si se puede!

        http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-brown-bills-20121001,0,356519,full.story Gov. Brown did VETO a bill that would have forbidden sheriffs like Baca from cooperating with the Feds in rounding up illegals (as if they do round them up).

        “The other closely watched immigration bill was known as the Trust Act. It would have prohibited local law enforcement officers from cooperating with federal authorities to detain suspected illegal immigrants, unless they are charged with a serious or violent felony.

        Some in law enforcement campaigned hard against the measure, AB 1081 by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco). Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said it conflicted with federal law and vowed to defy it. [Now THAT’S curious.]

        The act is aimed at Secure Communities, a federal program that creates a pipeline from local jails to deportation. In participating jurisdictions, the fingerprints of every person arrested and booked into local jails are run through federal databases. Federal authorities flag suspected illegal immigrants, then request that police detain them for 48 hours, providing more time for a transfer to federal custody.

        Brown wrote in his veto message that he supported the intent of the Trust Act but it was “fatally flawed,” as it would have protected illegal immigrants involved in such crimes as child abuse, drug trafficking and selling weapons. “I believe it’s unwise to interfere with a sheriff’s discretion to comply with a detainer issued for people with these kinds of troubling criminal records,” he said.”

  13. Gordo linked this on the old open thread around the same time I published this new one, so I’m going to repeat the link here, because it’s important to read:
    http://theobamafile.websitetoolbox.com/post/show_single_post?pid=1275170705&postcount=1

    My only disagreement with Beckwith is his seeming acceptance of the “notion” that the decision made by the people in the election will be real. It’s not a given. In fact, with this communist cabal in power, running the department of inJustice, controlling election boards, counting the votes, the 2012 results are less likely to be accurate than the 2008 results. They have rigged votes (Nixon/Kennedy) before, and they will again. They plan to continue to do so through so MANY methods that it’s not even possible to remember them all: No voter ID at the polls; allowing people to use false documentation of eligibility with no checking against federal databases; registering illegal aliens and other ineligible people to vote via Motor Voter; registering dead people, dogs, and felons; filing lawsuits to keep the polls open longer in certain areas; depressing the military vote (it’s currently reported that there’s a suspicious lack of requests for absentee ballots by the VA military http://mvpproject.org/in-the-news/va-military-absentee-ballots-going-awol-in-2012/); busing people across state and county lines so they can vote multiple times in the same election; encouraging “snow birds” and college students to vote twice–by absentee in their home states and again in person in the state in which they currently reside; stuffing ballot boxes; “losing” ballot boxes or “forgetting” to download totals from selected electronic voting machines; outsourcing the counting of votes to foreign countries; using machinery to register votes manufactured in South American communist dictatorships; filing lawsuits to contest the vote counts (Bush/Gore 2000); on and on and on.

  14. UNIVISION runs an investigative series about the murders of Mexican citizens by guns provided to cartels by the Obama administration via Fast and Furious: http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/01/univision-report-connects-operation-fast-and-furious-scandal-to-murders-of-mexican-teenagers/

    They claim the Obama administration “inadvertently” let the guns be used to kill Mexican citizens. They FALSELY claim that We the People began to care ONLY when it was a U.S. border agent who became a victim. That’s racist stupidity. We the People became aware of the program WHEN Agent Terry got killed. Before that, the only people who knew about the program were Clinton, Obama, and Holder (possibly the Mexican president) and the people they CHARGED WITH running it. Univision points out 57 guns that weren’t mentioned in the recent Congressional investigation.

    Interesting that they held off on this report until the Holder inJustice Dept. put out the results of their investigation into themselves which, of course, showed that they “knew nossin’, herr commandant.” What’s next? Oh, let’s take a guess, huh?

    Reparations! We the People will have to pay reparations for the outrages and these murders committed by people who were given guns by our government, behind our backs, illegally. We the People will be sued, probably, in international court. We the People will have to pay the price, not Obama, Holder, and Clinton. They’re innocent. They said so. We the People are guilty.

    Paul Ryan is calling for Holder to be fired: http://dailycaller.com/2012/09/30/paul-ryan-eric-holder-must-go-over-fast-and-furious/

    FIRE OBAMA AND HOLDER AND CLINTON GO WITH HIM. CASE CLOSED. REPUBLIC SAVED!

    “Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan agrees with presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s call for Attorney General Eric Holder to resign, or for President Barack Obama to fire him, over Operation Fast and Furious, a Ryan spokesman told The Daily Caller.

    “The congressman agrees with the governor,” Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck told TheDC on Sunday, referring to Mitt Romney’s call for Holder’s resignation or termination over the gunwalking scandal last December.

    “Either Mr. Holder himself should resign, or the president should ask for his resignation or remove him,” Romney said in December 2011. “It’s unacceptable for him to continue in that position now given the fact that he has misled Congress and entirely botched the investigation of the Fast and Furious program.””

    • This is interesting: In the news articles about the DOJ report, they implied that Holder and Obama are off the hook. NOW, however, the DOJ disputes that’s what they said. Remember? They used the typical DemoncRAT weasel meme: There’s “no evidence” that he knew. (same article linked above):

      “”Despite claims from Holder that a recently released report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz “exonerates” or “clears” him from responsibility for Fast and Furious, Horowitz testified before Congress that his report does not clear Holder.

      Horowitz told the House oversight committee that his team found that almost everyone inside Holder’s inner circle knew about the nefarious aspects of Fast and Furious and that Holder should have known about it, even if his investigation found no evidence that he did. [Read further and you will learn that there’s no evidence because they sent one guy to Iraq (remember), they won’t hand over emails, they won’t make people available for interviews, and people involved who didn’t work for the DOJ won’t talk unless they’re given immunity FROM PROSECUTION!]

      “We found, as we outlined in the report, we struggle to understand how an operation of this size, of this importance, that impacted another country like it did, could not have been briefed up to the attorney general of the United States,” Horowitz said. “It should have been, in our view. It was that kind of a case.””

      This is so typical. They tell the lamestream one thing, which gets reported, and then they tell CONGRESS, when they’re under oath or in jeopardy of being charged with lying to Congress, the opposite. Just like with the death of Ambassador Stevens. One story in the media; another story told to Congress.

      It’s so annoying for them, I’m sure. All will be well for them when they can just dissolve Congress or complete their castration of Congress after the next election–when all power shall be consolidated into the hands of potus for life.

    “Department of Agriculture personnel in the Obama administration have met with Mexican Government officials dozens of times since the president took office to promote nutrition assistance programs — notably food stamps — among Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America.

    Writing in response to Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions’ July request for information about the USDA’s little known partnership with the Mexican government to educate citizen and noncitizen immigrants from Mexico about the availability of food stamps and other nutrition assistance programs, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack defended the partnership as a way to curb hunger in America — and the continuation of a program formed under the Bush administration in 2004.

    “The Mexico-U.S. Partnership for Nutrition Assistance Initiative is just one of a wide range of USDA partnership activities intended to promote awareness of nutrition assistance among those who need benefits and meet all program requirements under current law.” Vilsack wrote to Sessions in a letter obtained by The Daily Caller.

    Since the partnership began, Vilsack wrote, USDA personnel have met at least 151 times with officials from the Mexican government “to discuss nutrition assistance programs as well as to provide program updates.” Those instances included 91 meetings with embassy and consulate staff in 25 U.S. cities; 29 health fairs in 19 U.S. cities; and 31 roundtable discussions, conferences and forums in 20 U.S. cities.”

  17. As college student, Holder participated in ‘armed’ takeover of Columbia University ROTC office

    September 30, 2012

    As college student, Eric Holder participated in ‘armed’ takeover of former Columbia University ROTC office

    As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed,” The Daily Caller has learned.

    Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions from The Daily Caller about whether Holder himself was armed — and if so, with what sort of weapon.

    Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”

    Black radicals from the same group also occupied the office of Dean of Freshman Henry Coleman until their demands were met. Holder has publicly acknowledged being a part of that action.

    The details of the student-led occupation, including the claim that the raiders were “armed,” come from a deleted Web page of the Black Students’ Organization (BSO) at Columbia, a successor group to the SAAS. Contemporary newspaper accounts in The Columbia Daily Spectator, a student newspaper, did not mention weapons.

    Holder, now the United States’ highest-ranking law enforcement official, has given conflicting accounts of this episode during college commencement addresses at Columbia, but both the BSO’s website and the Daily Spectator have published facts that conflict with his version of events.

    Holder has bragged about his involvement in the “rise of black consciousness” protests at Columbia.

    “I was among a large group of students who felt strongly about the way we thought the world should be, and we weren’t afraid to make our opinions heard,” he said during Columbia’s 2009 commencement exercises. “I did not take a final exam until my junior year at Columbia — we were on strike every time finals seemed to roll around — but we ran out of issues by that third year.”

    Though then-Dean Carl Hovde declared the occupation of the Naval ROTC office illegal and said it violated university policy, the college declined to prosecute any of the students involved. This decision may have been made to avoid a repeat of violent Columbia campus confrontations between police and members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) in 1968.

    The ROTC headquarters was ultimately renamed the Malcolm X lounge as the SAAS organization demanded. It later became a hang-out spot for another future U.S. leader, Barack Obama, according to David Maraniss’ best-selling ”Barack Obama: The Story.”

    • Say what?!!!

      And HOW many times have the confirmed him to office? And he got security clearance HOW?

    • Amazing story. I can’t believe the final quote by Holder, spoken just THIS YEAR:

      “In February 2012, Holder said during a World Leaders Forum at Columbia University that he “can’t actually imagine a time in which the need for more diversity would ever cease.”

      “Affirmative action has been an issue since segregation practices,” Holder said. “The question is not when does it end, but when does it begin. … When do people of color truly get the benefits to which they are entitled?”

      Holder has also come under fire for presiding over a Justice Department that declined to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party who allegedly intimidated white voters outside a Philadelphia polling precinct in 2008.”

      That explains SO MUCH. No wonder he won’t go after his old peeps, the Black Panthers.

      Note as OUR Attorney General, he has NO INTEREST IN ANYBODY WHO’S NOT A “PERSON OF COLOR” GETTING BENEFITS OR BEING ENTITLED TO ANYTHING, NOT EVEN VOTING RIGHTS.

      • It should surprise nobody that the WayBack Machine has suddenly got a problem with the “machine” that services that version of the black student organization website that once said that these guys were armed. And I can’t find any news story about that incident.

    • Oh, so sad. The UK picked up the story! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2211350/Attorney-General-Eric-Holder-armed-took-protest-Columbia-occupied-school-office-FIVE-days.html (You probably won’t be reading it in your local paper!)
      “Attorney General Eric Holder may have been armed when he and some fellow Columbia University students occupied an abandoned school office and demanded that it be rededicated to Malcolm X.

      Conservative news site The Daily Caller reported that when he was a sophomore at the Ivy League school, a then-20-year-old Holder was an active member of the Student Afro-American Society who fittingly sported a similar hair style at the time.

      They cite old student archives which allege that Holder and his fellow protestors were ‘armed’ when they took control of the then-abandoned office space that had previously been used to house the campus chapter of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps.

      Holder’s involvement in the protest is undisputed, and The New York Times reported in 2009 that Holder was recruited by upperclassmen to participate in the five-day occupation.

      In their report, however, the students were ‘armed with pillowcases and sheets’.

      The Times also contradicts the Daily Caller report, saying that Holder was a freshman and not a sophomore at the time of the occupation, and says that it took place in 1969 rather than 1970.

      Holder’s close college friend Steve Sims confirmed in both the New York Times article and a GQ profile that both he and Holder participated in the protest, but in neither did he mention weapons.

      The Daily Caller’s report does not specify what weapons they believe Holder and his compatriots held during the sit-in, but they imply that their tools were more dangerous than simply bedding.

      The website credits the weapons claim to the Columbia Black Student’s Organization, which has since taken over for the Student Afro-American Society. They say that on BSO website, the occupiers were ‘armed’ during the raid, but that portion of the BSO website is not readily available.”

      No wonder they like the OCCUPY Poopstockers so much, too.

    • http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/01/eric-holder-in-1999-i-care-about-victims-video/

      Despite having pardoned the FALN terrorists who murdered many in cold blood and despite having run Fast and Furious, which led to the deaths of over 300 Mexicans and for which he still hasn’t apologized, and also the deaths of at least two U.S. agents, Holder claims that he “cares about victims.”

  18. http://www.gq.com/news-politics/politics/201012/eric-holder-attorney-general-rahm-emanuel-white-house-elections?printable=true

    This guy has GOT to be fired or removed from office somehow. How did we miss this?

    “Since his appointment in February 2009, Holder has become a vanguard for the administration’s progressive wing. He has promised to end the policy of indefinite detention at Guantánamo by prosecuting some of its most notorious detainees; to investigate torture by the CIA; and to revitalize the department’s most neglected offices, like the long-suffering Civil Rights Division. He has even tried to extend his influence beyond the DOJ, declaring his opposition to the death penalty and gun rights despite a constitutional obligation to enforce both.”

    FAST AND FURIOUS?

    “Raised in the neighborhood of East Elmhurst, Queens, Holder grew up in a thriving nexus of African-American culture. As a kid in the 1950s and ’60s, his neighbors included Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Willie Mays, and Malcolm X. “Louis Farrakhan lived midway up the block,” Holder’s brother, Billy, recalled recently.”

    Malcolm X and Screwy Louie were his neighbors. Consider the irony of this paragraph:

    “Ultimately, what convinced Holder to accept the position [as Barry’s attorney general] had as much to do with George W. Bush as Barack Obama. In the span of eight years, the Bush administration had transformed the DOJ in ways that offended Holder deeply. Nowhere was the change more visible than inside the Civil Rights Division, which Holder calls the department’s “crown jewel.” Since its creation in the 1950s, the CRD had always been on the forefront of America’s quest for equal rights, a place where the nation’s standards of fairness were etched into case law, one difficult decision at a time. Yet under the Bush team, the CRD had become a bastion of discrimination itself.”

    • Here’s what really got Holder. A guy in the CRD under Bush:

      “Atop half the CRD’s offices sat a man named Bradley Schlozman—32 years old, four years out of clerkship, with a right-wing fervor matched only by his disdain for the office he was assigned to help lead. Within days of arriving at the CRD, Schlozman set out to purge liberals from its staff—isolating some of the most experienced lawyers, assigning their cases to younger and more conservative attorneys, and when the older lawyers complained or quit, replacing them with even more young conservatives. Throughout, he was explicit about his plans, writing to friends that the CRD was a cesspool of “commies,” “pinkos,” and “mold spores” and explaining that his real intention “is to gerrymander all these crazy libs right out of the section.””

      Commies and pinkos. I think he got that right.

      Now consider the irony of this statement:

      Obama promised change on a variety of fronts, but the central front was the rule of law,” says Georgetown law professor and civil-liberties scholar David Cole. “He promised to restore our standing in the world by restoring our commitment to constitutional and international law.”

      And I have to stop reading. I can’t take it anymore.

  19. If you do read on in the GQ article, don’t miss the part about how Holder dropped everything and rushed to Chicago when he saw on the news about a black kid who was beaten by some other kids. Then think about ALL the racial attacks in Chicago where blacks are indiscriminately beating up white people, simply for being white. Does Holder rush to Chicago to address those racist incidents? Nope.

    • You know what’s wrong with these people? All of them–Holder, Obama, Ayers, Dohrn, all of them: They’ve NEVER grown up. They’re deeply psychologically scarred people, narcissistic people, who are victims of arrested development.

  20. Are they surprised that Obama doesn’t CARE about what’s ILLEGAL?
    http://thehill.com/blogs/defcon-hill/industry/259517-graham-says-hell-block-reimbursements-in-layoff-notice-fight

    “Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says that he will do anything he can to block the Obama administration from reimbursing defense contractors for severance costs if the firms don’t send layoff notices to employees.

    The Obama administration issued guidance Friday that said defense firms’ costs would be covered if they have to layoff workers due to canceled contracts under the across-the-board cuts set to take effect Jan. 2.

    The layoff notices have become a politically charged issue because they could have come just four days ahead of the election because of a 60-day notice required by federal law for mass layoffs.

    Graham and other Republicans were livid after the Obama administration issued the guidance on Friday telling contractors that their legal costs would be covered due to canceled contracts under sequestration, but only if they did not issue layoff notices before sequestration occurs — and before the November election.

    “I will do everything in my power to make sure not one taxpayer dollar is spent reimbursing companies for failure to comply with WARN Act,” Graham told The Hill in a phone interview Monday. “That is so beyond the pale — I think it’s patently illegal.””

    So he uses our money to bribe companies to BREAK THE LAW.

  21. http://thecable.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2012/10/01/obama_waives_sanctions_on_countries_that_use_child_soldiers

    “U.S. President Barack Obama issued a new executive order last week to fight human trafficking, touting his administration’s handling of the issue.

    “When a little boy is kidnapped, turned into a child soldier, forced to kill or be killed — that’s slavery,” Obama said in a speech at the Clinton Global Initiative. “It is barbaric, and it is evil, and it has no place in a civilized world. Now, as a nation, we’ve long rejected such cruelty.”

    But for the third year in a row, Obama has waived almost all U.S. sanctions that would punish certain countries that use child soldiers, upsetting many in the human rights community.

    Late Friday afternoon, Obama issued a presidential memorandum waiving penalties under the Child Soldiers Protection Act of 2008 for Libya, South Sudan, and Yemen, penalties that Congress put in place to prevent U.S. arms sales to countries determined by the State Department to be the worst abusers of child soldiers in their militaries. The president also partially waived sanctions against the Democratic Republic of the Congo to allow some military training and arms sales to that country.”

    So his “concern” for child abuse, slavery, barbarism is CONTINGENT upon political sensibilities and, perhaps, religious ones. Some children are simply less equal than others, if their freedom interferes with Barry’s PLAN.

  22. http://washington.cbslocal.com/2012/10/01/professor-drones-will-soon-be-able-to-kill-during-war-without-human-assistance/

    For some reason, this story reminds me of that Star Trek episode where war was so “humane” that all they did was order the selected “victims” to report for extermination. Now they claim that drones that will kill without human intervention will be more “humane” and “ethical” than human soldiers.

    Obama’s stories…… and so much more

    • I wrote a post once, about how there ARE no coincidences in the Obamanation.

      MEGA KUDOS TO MR. DON FREDRICK FOR THAT EXCELLENT SUMMARY!

      • Actually, that piece deserves a Pulitzer Prize. He may just have to settle for a WTPOTUS Prize for Journalistic and Non-coincidental Excellence.

        • I’m inviting our readers and commenters to write their own “just happened to” paragraphs that cover some of the stuff we’ve found over the years. What say u?

          • That is an excellent, coherent indictment ^

            What intelligence was collected on how the SEALS Team Six were crammed in a flying tuna can and blown up back in 2011?

            Were the conclusions swept under the magic prayer rug?

            … “and it just so happened” …

            August 6, 2011
            Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during fighting in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans, most of them belonging to the same elite unit as the Navy SEALs who killed former Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden, U.S. officials said Saturday. It was the deadliest single loss for American forces in the decade-old war against the Taliban.

            Cannot figure where I was for the memorial ceremony on the first anniversary this year to honor the SEAL Team Six Heros, I had planned to attend/ view the services. I marked my calendar and all.

          • September 11, 2011

            and it just so happened
            Commander-In-Chief responds to a moaning, groaning ingrate:

          • Good one, Papoose! And it happened. It really did. We could do a “just happened” for everybody in the dead pool.

          • How can a Commander of Chief and his wife could show such contempt about anything under the sun during the closing of a solemn September 11th ceremony is beyond me, The disdain shown on both their faces is an abomination and totally out of place. Proof of an imposter live on videotape. And I don’t care what the subject was they were intimately sharing. its there. they are disgusting frauds.

            and it just so happens they built their own American logo and flag using the colors, red, white and United Nations turquoise with a crescent for good measure.

      • It’s rather sad to think that after two years, we’re all still like Cassandra, crying out the truth and the warning IN VAIN. This is really an interesting old tape, but it’s truly sad to see how little traction all this has got.

        I didn’t know that a CIA agent asked that rich Pakistani family to “look after” Barry back in ’81 when he went to Pakistan. That agent now lives in South America, but Fredrick couldn’t track him down.

        The Dunhams knew FMD in Kansas and FMD lived in Seattle when Ann was in High School. A caller claims that there is information that it’s possible SAD had a previous abortion, before Barry’s birth, with FMD as father both times. There’s also speculation that SAD was sent to Canada to have Barry, she changed her mind, came to Seattle with the baby to visit friends, then went to Hawaii to “spring” this on Madelyn, with BHO Sr. as the “fall guy”. Supposedly Stan didn’t know the truth. Of course, we all talked about this long ago. I’d never heard about any possible previous abortion. If this happened, it was when Ann was much younger, so one wonders how old she really was if those are her in the porn shots. It’s possible she WAS the very young “Ann” that had the menage with FMD and wife. FMD was also friends with Thomas Ayers. He says he’d bet his last dollar that it was FMD that told Barry to get out of Oxy and go to Columbia, meeting with Ayers. Malcolm X met BHO Sr. in 1959 in Kenya, Fredrick says.

        He reprises the story about the hot dog stand and Barry, Davis, and Stan having dope parties in Frank’s apartment.

        He says there are “too many money questions” concerning his college and how things were paid for. He thinks he registered as a foreign student so he either committed fraud or he’s not a nbc. He believes the “smoking gun” is the multiple SS#s. He mentions that BIC was alleged to be a front for the CIA. SAD worked for Ford and USAID, both of which have also at times been CIA fronts. SAD spoke Urdu, “which most people don’t speak.” They discuss how much the CIA has been infiltrated by globalists and Marxists and how many of them are actually un-American.

        Grandma Dunham was involved with probate and wills and probably had access to SS#s of deceased people. Presumption is Barry couldn’t get his own SS# so he stole somebody’s. Some of the multiple SS#s weren’t really his and there might really be a person names Stephan Dunham/Obama. Some of the numbers tie to known addresses of his in Chicago and the Senate office building in DC. How does that happen? How does a U.S. citizen get multiple SS#s “other than fraudulent purposes?”

        • Host says that two groups use multiple SS#s: Criminals and undercover agents. I’m betting on …

          • How did Obama get an advance of $125,000 for a book when nobody ever heard of him? How did he get a high position in the Joyce Foundation? He’s convinced the Clintons know about Obama’s past and the people with the money and power are calling the shots, so Obama’s reading off the teleprompter and doing as he’s told. Follow the money.

    Oh the horror of it all! The world goes up in flames, and Ann Romney makes a fashion faux pas! In other news, Michelle has very large thighs. Far too fat to be sporting such a short skirt.

    • Mooch makes a “fashion faux pas” on any day of the week. There are more photos out there of her looking like a clown than of Ann looking like any biker chick.

  27. What about Mooch’s Malcolm X garb and commie colors for family on inauguration day???? With Mr. Romney we don’t get the constant arm pits and pumping iron/push ups arms.

  28. Michelle’s “junk” is pretty pronounced in this pic at the kid’s awards, don’t ya think?

  29. http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2012/10/02/judge-rules-photo-id-wont-be-required-for-penna-voters-this-year/

    OUTRAGEOUS. The voter ID law in PA was upheld by the PA SUPREME COURT! It was set to go. People without an ID could cast provisional ballots, to be followed up later to ensure eligibility, before the votes were counted. Now, despite that the law was upheld, a judge has up and decided that for THIS election, those without an ID will still vote and NOT by provisional ballots. Their votes will just “count”.

    “Judge Simpson says he viewed the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s recent directive (see related story) as ordering that he sever the illegal portion of the law concerning the provisional ballots.

    In his 16-page ruling, the judge also said that the Department of the Commonwealth can continue to educate voters on the ID requirement and encourage voters to obtain ID. He says voters must be able to get the “Department of State” ID as an ID of first resort for voting — that is, they don’t have to first be rejected for a Penndot driver’s license or non-driver ID.

    So, this November’s election will look very much like this past April’s primary, in which a “soft rollout” of the new law took place (related story). Voters were asked for ID by poll officials, but those without it could still vote.

    The order leaves open the possibility that the voter ID law will be in effect at future elections. An appeal is still possible.

    Today’s ruling comes just five weeks before the election (related story). Democrats and groups including the AARP and NAACP mounted a furious opposition to a law that Republicans say is necessary to prevent election fraud (another related story).”

    This is all because Romney was competitive in PA. Now they’re going to STEAL this state by allowing all those ineligibile people to vote.

  30. http://www.fiercehomelandsecurity.com/story/arpaio-loses-appeal-over-traffic-stop-injunction/2012-10-01

    They’re still trying to stop Sheriff Joe from doing his job of ENFORCING THE LAW as We the People want all law enforcement officers to do.

    “A federal appeals court tossed out Sept. 25 an effort by Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio to lift a preliminary lower-court injunction against Maricopa County that prevents it from detaining individuals based solely on reasonable belief that they’re illegal immigrants.”

    Consider this logic by “judge” Wallace:

    “The appeals court opinion doesn’t address racial profiling, but says Maricopa sheriff’s attorneys are wrong to assert that they have the authority to detain individuals based on suspicion of being an undocumented alien.

    Unlike illegal entry, mere unauthorized presence in the United States is not a crime,” Wallace writes. Maricopa sheriffs lack legal authority to enforce federal civil immigration law. Although previous court cases have recognized that “illegal presence may be some indication of illegal entry,” unlawful presence need not result from illegal entry–for example, Wallace says, an individual who overstayed his visa.”

    • http://www.azfamily.com/news/Arpaio-hauls-in-450K-blows-away-competition-171439191.html

      “Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced Wednesday that he’s added hundreds of thousands of dollars to his already unprecedented war chest.

      Between Aug. 9 and Sept. 17, the county lawman raked in about $450,000, meaning Arpaio has raised more than $8 million for his re-election campaign.

      Of that, the sheriff has spent more than half the money, leaving him with roughly $3.8 million to battle his two opponents.

      Simply put, Arpaio’s fundraising totals dwarf his political rivals, Democratic Paul Penzone and Independent Mike Stauffer.

      Stauffer’s numbers were unavailable. But officials with the Penzone campaign say they raised about $138,000 during the five week period in August and September.

      That brought the amount Penzone has raised to $358,000 for the entire campaign. Stacey Pearson, a spokeswoman for Penzone, said the Democrat still has $114,000 left in his campaign coffers.”

      Hmm. Now why is it that Sheriff Joe is so freaking popular? Do you think it’s because he ENFORCES THE LAW? (btw, same bs tactics being used in AZ: His opponent claims the race is “close.” He has a “poll” to “prove” it.)

  31. Jack Cashill:

    D’Souza Can’t Quite Accept the Real Obama

    “… As is solidly documented, Ann and young Barry showed up in Seattle weeks after Obama’s August 1961 birth and lived there for about a year while Obama Sr. remained in Hawaii.

    D’Souza cannot yet to come to terms with this. In the movie, he flirts with fraud in his continued insistence that, despite all evidence, Obama Sr. and Ann lived together for a year. Last week on KHOW in Denver, Boyles challenged D’Souza on this issue.

    When Boyles called Obama’s claim of being abandoned by his father at age two “a provable lie,” D’Souza snapped back, “That is not a provable lie.” He then volunteered the novel theory that Ann moved back to Hawaii after the first quarter at the University of Washington in fall 1961 and quite possibly saw Obama Sr. off to Harvard in June 1962. As sources, D’Souza cited Sally Jacobs of the Boston Globe, who wrote a book on Obama’s father, and Janny Scott of the New York Times, who wrote a book on Obama’s mother.

    More troubling is the willingness of D’Souza and his colleagues in the established conservative media to join in the suppression. For the most part, they will not touch issues like Obama’s Social Security number, the birth certificate, his passport and travel inconsistencies, his dubious parentage, his radical affiliations, his school records, or the authorship question. More often than not, they ridicule those who raise these issues, often without knowing what the issues are.”

    • Thanks for staying on top of that Gordo. He promised in that radio interview that he’d write about this and I forgot to keep an eye out for it.

  32. If this isn’t LOW then I don’t know what is. Barry must REALLY be getting desperate: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/romney-garbage-man-ad-video-132521031–election.html

    Now they have Romney’s trashman doing attack ads against him, claiming Romney “doesn’t care” about him or his future bad back. Let’s guess that the Romneys leave this guy a big-ass tip every year. Ya think? I bet. Notice how he mentions what other people do (thank him, hug him) but never says anything about Romney–yet he leaves the IMPLICATION hanging there that Romney doesn’t thank him. I’ll bet you anything that the Romneys give them Christmas gifts. I bet you ANYTHING that they thank them. If HE himself truly picks up Romney’s trash personally. I’m guessing that he simply works for the company that has the contract to pick up trash in San Diego.

    If this man were attacking Obama, he’d lose his job for POLITICIZING his job. If you ask me, this is the lowest of the low. It’s a public trust, if you ask me. He’s providing a service and to do this is a low down dirty trick.

    The OBAMAS don’t care about the many, many servants who see to their every need. Who cooks that Wagyu beef that we pay for? The mechanics who service Air Force One? The people who go out and shop for her lobster and “locally sourced, organic” foods?

    Let’s see their trash person in Chicago. Trash persons service EVERY AMERICAN. They don’t just serve the rich. If not for the trash, they wouldn’t have jobs, would they? More power to him for working, but it sure seems he’s like he’s already setting himself up for disability. Lots of people do jobs like that. It’s a living and there’s nothing demeaning about it.

    I saw a PBS commercial recently, one of those touchy-feeling, black children empowerment things encouraging them to go to school and succeed. The kid is spouting stuff about how he needs to work hard so he won’t be working in fast food. Now if THAT isn’t elitist, what is?

    What the hell is wrong with the many, many people who work in fast food? Making an honest living in fast food? Providing a service to everyone who, unlike Mooch (who wants to put them out of work), LOVES Mickey D’s?

    They “justify” doing this ad by alluding to Romneys 47% comment, but of course they STILL don’t mention that the film was heavily edited and 2 minutes were just up and “lost” right when he allegedly made the comment that they CLAIM meant he didn’t care about people like, I suppose, this trashman. What Romney said is that he’s not focused on trying to get them to VOTE FOR HIM, he doesn’t worry about trying to persuade them, because they have already made up their minds. OBVIOUSLY.

    That man belongs to a union, which is who produced this ad. It’s LOW. That’s all I can say.That man should be ashamed of himself. He’s LUCKY to HAVE A JOB in the Obamanation. Romney and company should go out and film ads with people that OBAMA doesn’t care about because they’ve been unemployed for four freaking years!

    • “AFSCME union, the nation’s largest and fastest growing public sector union, has tracked down a sanitation worker or trash man named Richard Hayes. Hayes just so happens to be assigned to a route in La Jolla, California where Mitt Romney’s home is. The union is trying portray Hayes as “Mitt Romney’s trash man” when in reality, Hayes picks up the trash for an entire neighborhood in the City of San Diego and is paid by taxpayers.” http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2012/10/02/public_sector_union_promoting_romneys_trash_man

      Aren’t there RULES about public employees not engaging in politics? Whoa! This guy makes $50 grand a year to pick up Mitt’s trash. Hmm. I wonder what the Obamas pay their servants? They ones they must pay out of their own pockets, not the ones WE pay for? Guess what? This guy claims Mitt Romney doesn’t care about him, but when Mitt was governor, he worked as a trashman for a day, so he WOULD know what that man’s day is like! Read the story. The writer ends by asking when Barry ever picked up trash? Evah? His wife says he won’t even pick up his own socks. He leaves them on the floor for the WH servants, those INVISIBLE ones, to pick up.

      • http://www.mediaite.com/online/are-you-kidding-me-romneys-garbage-man-blasts-him-in-new-political-ad/

        They suggest this one for Romney:
        “Hi, I’m John Doe, and I own a plumbing repair shop in the South Side of Chicago. I once fixed Barack Obama’s kitchen sink. Bending over for hours on end is difficult… and so is building my own business. But when I made his sink work like new, Obama disputed some of the charges, claiming I didn’t actually do some of that work. When I retire, I’m going to know I worked hard and deserved the benefits. But Barack Obama doesn’t think I built that.”

        They should do it. Truly!

Well, I think it’s time for Romney to put out an ad showing where the Obamas live in Chicago, where they live now (with all the taxpayer supplied perks, and WHERE THEY PLAN TO LIVE in Hawaii. How beautiful is that? She calls Romney “hypocritical” for living in La Jolla. If he can afford it, as Obama now can, why not? She says Romney wants to “cut, cut, cut our workers.” HUH? Where is it anywhere in Romney’s plan to cut trash pickup in La Jolla? How many of their “workers” HAVE LOST THEIR JOBS in the Obama economy?

        • http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/329098/mitt-romney-worked-garbage-man-charles-c-w-cooke

          Another story about how Mitt Romney tried to understand all the voters.

          And see how clever they think they are? They have a black guy, a woman, and a “latino”. They think THAT makes THEM immune from criticism or potential backlash. Nope. They get the same treatment everybody else does. They spout crap; we’ll counter it. So the “latino” guy is a fire engine mechanic who just MIGHT have fixed the fire engine that MIGHT get called to Romney’s house if it MIGHT HAPPEN to catch on fire. So? Oh, and his mom used to work cleaning houses like Romney’s. So? Doesn’t Mitt Romney pay a lot of taxes for those services? And isn’t he and thousands of other taxpayers, then, those people’s employers?

          The entire premise of this crap is un-American. We celebrate success. OBAMA lives in a mansion. He’s going to move to a BIGGER mansion in beautiful, ocean-front Hawaii. Don’t fire mechanics work on trucks that might get called to his house? Aren’t millions, MILLIONS, of people out of work because of Obama’s policies (thousands of coal workers DELIBERATELY put out of work by his policies)? Does Obama CARE ABOUT ALL THOSE PEOPLE? No, he does not.

          Okay, so Romney says we have to tighten belts and cut the number of firemen and teachers, etc. Why is that? BECAUSE THERE IS NO MONEY. Where the hell do these people think money comes from?

          They think they can CONFISCATE the wealth of people like Romney. I have news for them. Go ahead. Take it all and redistribute it. And then what? And then what? How many days will all of their wealth pay for? And then everybody’s broke. Then they’ve killed the ENGINE OF OUR ECONOMY. Then they’ve KILLED THE GOOSE THAT LAYS THE GOLDEN EGG. Then we’re all equal–ALL OF US WILL BE EQUALLY LIVING IN SQUALOR LIKE IN CUBA.

      • You’ve got too be kidding me. Richard Hayes CHOOSE picking up trash as a profession or else he would not be doing it. Even if he has a family too support he could be going too night school too earn a degree for a better job. So he claims Romney does not care about his future bad back? And just how is that Romney’s fault because of the decisions Richard Hayes has decided for his life’s directions?

        Time too throw it back in Obama’s court. Why is it poooor Richard Hayes can only find a job as a trash man that puts his health in jeopardy? Because of Obama’s economy, or is it that you Mr. Hayes just have no ambition too better your self?

        Unbelievable these people are! I worked for 13 years in summers that reached over 120 degree heat, and some of that was during the Clinton years. Did working in the extreme heat sometimes lifting over 80pds put my health, my back, in jeopardy? of course it did. Did I blame Clinton for it? of course not, for god sakes I was just grateful too have a job too help support my family, like all of the American work force that supports this Nation. Obama’s Alinsky tactic’s are just sick! he’s a very, very, sick man, period!

        I’ll go along, play Obama’s sick game. San Diego County has became one of the largest Islamic County’s in the Nation, did Mr. Hayes just come from praising Allah before he made the ad for Obama or after? fair question too ask considering the odds, right? Just like Mr. Hayes puts the same type odds it maybe Romney’s fault for “supposed” future bad back.

        Nothing but hearsay…a sick game constantly played from Alinsky’s play book by the left.

        • You know. The trashpersons where I live just drive the truck, which does all the work. It picks up big dumpsters as well as those rollout carts. Are we to believe that La Jolla is so far behind the times that they don’t have the best, labor-saving equipment?

          That dude doesn’t need to get a degree. He’s pulling down $50 grand a year with union benefits that surely come with his public sector job. I have degrees and I don’t make that much money. Never did. So …

          Many people I know with degrees never made that much money. It depends upon the field you choose. Something’s upside down. Don’t you think? This is one reason why unions bug me. For every person with a union job at a company, there’s another person who’s not in the union (usually the female office workers) who get shorted because the company has to make up the union perks from somewhere.

          I still think it MUST BE illegal and a firing offense for this guy to use his taxpayer-funded job and images of the publicly owned trucks to attack citizens in La Jolla and to campaign for Obama. But as we saw last time, campaign laws don’t apply to Barry and unions get away with this. If it were an ad attacking Obama, you’d better believe that the DemoncRATS would be going after the person personally and trying to get him fired.

          • Your absolutely right Miri, now a day’s the garbage man never even has too step foot out of his truck. And more than likely they did cross the line making the ad, but because Obama gets so much of his Campaign money from the unions of course they get a pass. Same goals and all, hand and hand. Did you happen too catch that Obama made Cesar Chavez’s home a National Monument?

            Obama to designate Chavez home as nat’l monument

            Oct. 1, 2012

            WASHINGTON — In a move aimed at shoring up support from Hispanic and progressive voters, President Barack Obama will designate the California
            home of labor leader Cesar Chavez as a national monument.

            Obama will establish the Cesar E. Chavez National Monument in Keene, Calif., during a campaign swing through California next week. The property is known as La Paz, short for Nuestra Señora Reina de la Paz, or Our Lady Queen of Peace.

            The site served as national headquarters of the United Farm Workers union, as well as Chavez’s home, from the early 1970s until his death in 1993. Chavez is buried there and his grave site will be part of the monument.

            Obama said in a statement that Chavez “gave a voice to poor and disenfranchised workers everywhere,” adding that La Paz was at the center of significant civil rights events. By designating his home as a national monument, “Chávez’ legacy will be preserved and shared to inspire generations to come,” Obama said.

          • A little history on Cesar Estrada Chavez

            Cesar Estrada Chavez was born to Mexican immigrant parents on their family farm near Yuma, Arizona, on March 31, 1927. In 1938 his father
            found permanent work at a dried-fruit packing plant in San Jose, California, where Chavez was introduced to unions when his father organized the plant’s workers.

            During World War II, Chavez served in the U.S. Navy for two years. After the war he married and settled in California, becoming a vol- unteer organizer for the Community Service Organizations (CSO) in 1950.

            The CSO was organized by Saul Alinsky, a self proclaimed “professional radical,” to create a Mexican-American voting bloc. Chavez registered Mexican- Americans and helped them deal with government agencies.

            During this period he did much to fill out his limited formal education and to learn organizational and leadership skills. He idealized Alinsky’s social activism and absorbed Ghandi’s teachings on nonviolence. Singled out for his leadership ability, he rose quickly in the organization, becoming the California-Arizona regional direc-tor in 1958.
            ~
            The work of Chavez on behalf of the migrants resulted in him being closely examined by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. His desire to form a union was not necessarily a problem; however, a number of factors brought him and his followers to the attention of the authorities in Washington, DC. First and most obvious was the race and class of Chavez and the migrants. Organizing and empowering poor minorities inevitably led to radicalism and sub-version in the view of the FBI
            dominated by Director Herbert Hoover, who saw Chavez’s actions as an epidemic of empowerment movements in the United States during the 1960s. Second, was Chavez’s close association with Alinsky, already a known radical.

            Third, the structure and appearance of the union made it suspect: Chavez was the union. It is clear today that its success depended on his great personal charisma, thereby reminding those on guard against Communist infiltration of the personality cults of the Soviet bloc. The union’s rallies, with their great number of poor people singing and hundreds of red and black banners fluttering in the air, completed an image of sub- version in the minds of the Bureau.
            ~
            The grape pickers walkout was not merely a labor dis- pute. Chavez viewed it, and the union, as part of the larger national drive for social justice [Communism] that marked the 1960s. It was exactly this drive for social justice, or to overturn the status quo that frightened Hoover and led the FBI to begin a file on Chavez and his organization.
            ~

            SECTION 2 Roll 1, 0250-0336

  33. It seems to me that these people MUST be at risk of losing their jobs, even in communist CA. They are USING their taxpayer-funded jobs. The ads are SHOWING taxpayer-funded trucks. They’re using their positions as public employees to campaign against a taxpayer, a “customer” of the service, and a citizen (arguably) of CA. In addition, they give the impression that the entire city of La Jolla, or the county, is AGAINST ROMNEY. This HAS TO BE illegal, even in CA. Are all residents of San Diego County DemoncRATS? How about all the folks living in La Jolla? Are they happy to see their employees using the jobs they provide for them to take political stands? You know who really doesn’t care about these people? The ones who USED them for political reasons and didn’t give a rat’s ass what the blowback might be on them.

  34. I haven’t dug through this all yet, but this appears to be good news. A judge has ruled that the 14th amendment did NOT redefine what a natural born citizen is. That’s one of the main arguments of obots. That the 14th amendment made anchor babies “natural born” citizens instead of simply citizens. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2938806/posts

  36. ON HIS WATCH?????? OBAMA…. can you hear US???????
    More DEAD…. over WHAT exactly?????
    http://news.yahoo.com/border-patrol-agent-shot-dead-another-wounded-arizona-131649845.html

    • Early this morning, a Border Patrol agent was murdered protecting our border.

      If it is discovered that this agent was murdered with Fast and Furious weapons, will Obama’s illegal invocation of executive privilege keep the information from the public’s eyes like he did with the murder of Brian Terry?

      We should demand that Obama release all documents relating to Fast and Furious.

      Not after the election.

      Now.
      http://www.westernjournalism.com/obamas-mockery-of-border-security-leads-to-another-dead-border-patrol-agent/

    • “A U.S. Border Patrol agent was shot dead and another wounded while on patrol on Tuesday in a drug smuggling corridor in Arizona, near the border with Mexico, authorities said.

      Sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene in Naco, southeast of Tucson, at 1:33 a.m. local time (4:33 a.m. EDT/0833 GMT) by the Border Patrol following reports that one of its agents had been shot, Cochise County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Carol Capas said.

      Deputies found one dead agent and another with non-life-threatening injuries, Capas said.

      “As they were walking up the trail, they reported taking gunfire,” Capas said. “We have unknown suspect or suspects at this point.”

      FBI agents are investigating the shooting, authorities said. Officials did not identify the deceased agent, pending notification of the agent’s family.

      Despite the construction of a tall, steel fence along the border with Mexico, the town of Naco remains a corridor for marijuana trafficking and human smuggling.”

      Only 44% of the border is secured under Obama. IF they find the gun that did it, will they TELL US if it traces back to Fast and Furious? Pshaw. Sure they will.

  37. Obama’s Phony Polls Exposed
    Dr. Kevin “Coach” Collins
    10/1/2012 Snips

    “Media fraudulent pollsters you’ve been busted. Your fake numbers have been exposed by two very unlikely and probably unwilling sources. Last Friday the Leftist cheerleaders at the Third Way “think tank” made what had to be a very sad announcement for them. They told the world their researchers had found Democrat registration has fallen by 490,000 in just Ohio alone and without going into finer numbers had also declined by significant numbers in other important states. Florida Democrat registration is down 4.9%, Iowa Democrats have lost 9.5% and remember that “this close” swing state of New Hampshire, the one that flipped its entire government just two years ago – Democrat registration is down 19.7%! More than this Third Way also found Republican registration was down only a 10th of the Democrat decline and that Independents (who favor Mitt Romney by 14 points) had grown in numbers.

    The full story from Ohio must be chilling for Democrats because 44% of these Democrat registration drops come from the Cleveland (Cuyahoga County) area cutting deeply into their lead over local Republicans. Hamilton and Franklin counties, both huge Democrat strongholds have seen steep declines in the number of registered Democrats as well. The combined decline of all three counties accounts for about 79% of the now “missing” Ohio Democrats.

    These “adjustments” to the voting rolls in Ohio comes as a result of a vigorous program to find and remove deceased registered voters and eliminate redundant voter rolls that have been counted twice over the years.
    ~
    The second blow to the false polls we constantly see is the just released Gallup report showing Republicans 16% (64/48) more enthusiastic about voting than Democrats are. Remember these numbers when you read the next fraudulent poll. Added to the sharp drop in Democrat registration they prove Barack Obama is on his way to a landslide defeat next month.

  38. Talk about a War on Women. This week, I don’t know if you heard, Todd Akin was AGAIN taken to task for something he said. This time, it was for saying that when Claire McCaskill debated her opponent in the last election, she was more “ladylike” than she was with Akin this time around. His point being that she’s desperate and took off the gloves and attacked him personally.

    SOMEHOW, the media and the progressives twist this into him being sexist. Is it, therefore, sexist if she complains that someone’s not “gentlemanly”? I don’t think so.

    No matter HOW Akin characterized her rudeness, they would have attacked him for fake sexism. Just as Barry is supposed to be immune from any criticism, or else the critic is RACIST! So now check this out:

    larger

    Here’s an explanation: http://washingtonexaminer.com/update-obama-campaign-deletes-outrageous-lady-parts-e-card-without-explanation/article/2509600

    and another: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/10/obama-camp-reduces-women-to-the-sum-of-their-reproductive-organs/

    Outrageous. All we are, apparently, are “lady parts.” Isn’t THAT sexist? Akin can’t use the term “lady”, but Obama’s campaign can anthropomorphize “lady parts” and send them to the polls. No brains required, ladies. Just use your “lady parts.”

    As one would expect, the big O disavows any knowledge of this ad. It didn’t pass through their “regular review.” It just appeared out of nowhere, like that Obama flag.

    • I read that the ad that people were supposed to email to friends was removed from Obama for America right after being exposed.

    • In Egypt, the women should have voted like their lady parts depend upon it, because THERE, they do. There’s an Egyptian woman making a sham run for the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. That will never be allowed under Sharia and by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, which now controls everything and will eventually institute Sharia throughout the country. EVEN SHE will not condemn FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION.

      Liberals are not impressed, calling her candidacy a cynical attempt by the Brotherhood to promote a misleading view of its stance on women.

      “They are still using women as decor,” said Nehad Abou-Qomsan, head of the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights.

      The Brotherhood contends that it supports women’s participation in politics, business and other parts of public life. But it also advocates a strongly traditional role for women as mothers and wives, and contends that equality cannot undermine that role or contradict Islamic Shariah law.

      Islamists are currently in a fierce political battle with liberal and secular forces in post-revolutionary Egypt, particularly over a new constitution. The Brotherhood and more conservative Islamists hold a majority on the assembly that is writing the charter, and liberals say they have been trying to introduce measures that would open the door for implementing a strict version of Islamic law and restrictions on women’s rights.

      In an interview with Associated Press, al-Saqari echoed the Brotherhood’s conservative views, saying that Shariah laws are the top parameter. She argued that she can’t call for a law banning female genital circumcision or limiting the marriage age for girls to prevent child marriage.

      But she insisted women have a right to run for president. The Brotherhood long said a woman or Christian could not be head of state in Muslim-majority Egypt, but since Mubarak’s fall it has softened that stance somewhat, saying it would not seek to write such a ban into law though it would not itself support a woman or Christian president. …

      Other prominent women in the Brotherhood have raised controversy recently with statements encouraging female genital mutilation, known as “circumcision” in Egypt, where it remains widespread despite attempts under Mubarak’s regime to curtail it. Some Egyptian religious conservatives say it is required by Islam, though the majority of the Muslim world does not practice it.

      Asked about the practice, al-Saqari avoided a direct response but said it and the issue of child marriage could not be dealt with through legislation.

      We leave it to the doctor to decide whether this girl needs FGM or not. I am not the one to decide, laws won’t work,” she said. “The way here is not through laws but through awareness,” she said, concerning laws setting a minimum age for marriage. Egyptian law currently sets a minimum age of 18, but some ultraconservatives have argued that Islam allows girls to marry as young as puberty and that the law must allow it.” http://news.yahoo.com/woman-bids-lead-egypt-islamist-party-192103812.html

      Just think about that for a minute: She leaves it to a “doctor” to decide if any girl “needs” to have her lady parts cut off, mutilating her forever, destroying any chance she will ever have to have a loving relationship with a husband, condemning her to a life of pain, infection, which will be compounded whenever she has sex or gives birth. What “doctor” would EVER say any woman “NEEDS” to be mutilated? Imagine a doctor saying any man “needs” to have his sexual organs CUT OFF.
