Happy Halloween Patriots!

Halloween Fun Facts:

  • An intense and persistent fear of Halloween is called Samhnainophobia.
  • The first Jack O’Lanterns were actually made from turnips.
  • Halloween is the second highest grossing commercial holiday after Christmas.
  • The word “witch” comes from the Old English wicce, meaning “wise woman.” In fact, wiccan were highly respected people at one time. According to popular belief, witches held one of their two main meetings, or sabbats, on Halloween night.
  • The owl is a popular Halloween image. In Medieval Europe, owls were thought to be witches, and to hear an owl’s call meant someone was about to die.
  • According to Irish legend, Jack O’Lanterns are named after a stingy man named Jack who, because he tricked the devil several times, was forbidden entrance into both heaven and hell. He was condemned to wander the Earth, waving his lantern to lead people away from their paths.
  • The largest pumpkin ever measured was grown by Norm Craven, who broke the world record in 1993 with a 836 lb. pumpkin.
  • Black and orange are typically associated with Halloween. Orange is a symbol of strength and endurance and, along with brown and gold, stands for the harvest and autumn. Black is typically a symbol of death and darkness and acts as a reminder that Halloween once was a festival that marked the boundaries between life and death.
  • Ireland is typically believed to be the birthplace of Halloween.
  • According to tradition, if a person wears his or her clothes inside out and then walks backwards on Halloween, he or she will see a witch at midnight.
  • Halloween is thought to have originated around 4000 B.C., which means Halloween has been around for over 6,000 years.
  • Boston, Massachusetts, holds the record for the most Jack O’Lanterns lit at once (30,128).

  1. I’m going to put my clothes on inside out and walk backwards, but I’m afraid the only witch I’ll see at midnight is myself–in the bathroom mirror!

    Happy Halloween, everybody! Eat candy!

    If you’re afraid of bad luck, just walk in counterclockwise circles three times. That will remove any jinx. Maybe we should all try this on election day. By any means necessary. 🙂

    • I’m going to put my clothes on inside out and walk backwards

      That was too funny Miri. It reminded me of when I was a kid, we actually did that at a slumber party once, had a ball. ahhhh, too be young again. I so miss those times, no cares, no worries. btw, you could never be a witch, your way too nice of a person for that worry.

      Cute post Bridgette, thanks for the Halloween trivia, you listed quite a few facts I did not know.

      Happy Halloween. Hope everyone had a great one, with lots of leftovers too enjoy for themselves 🙂

      • What’s a shame is that kids can’t enjoy the carefree fun we had. I remember running around in the dark, with my pillowcase full of candy, wind blowing, cold sky eerie, kicking leaves on my way home (many blocks) ALONE at 9:30 p.m., worried that my mom would kill me because I was supposed to be home at 9. But think about it: A little girl roaming the night for over 3 hours (with friends, of course, until I left the last one at her house on my trek home). Of course our parents worried about us, but not like people MUST worry today. Every adult back then watched out for every kid. We were safe. All the houses were lit; everybody gave out candy.

        Yes, “no cares, no worries.” But not in the society we have now: full of FEAR, full of promiscuous sex and porn, full of the sexualization of children, full of hatred and anger–courtesy of the leftists among us who hate religion and who warp the freedoms we all have by trying to eliminate the concurrent RESPONSIBILITY we all should practice, along with our rights.

  2. This is infuriating but really NO SURPRISE. More Romney votes turning up on machines for Obama. This time in the swing state of OHIO:
    http://www.marionstar.com/article/20121031/NEWS03/310310009/Problem-found-board-elections?nclick_check=1

    “MARION — Joan Stevens was one of several early voters at the polls on Monday. But when Stevens tried to cast her ballot for president, she noticed a problem.

    Upon selecting “Mitt Romney” on the electronic touch screen, Barack Obama’s name lit up.

    It took Stevens three tries before her selection was accurately recorded.

    “You want to vote for who you want to vote for, and when you can’t it’s irritating,” Stevens said.

    Stevens said she alerted Jackie Smith, a board of elections member who was present. Smith declined to comment, but Stevens says she mentioned that the machine had been having problems all day.

    Stevens also reported the issue to Sophia Rogers, the director of the board of elections for Marion County.

    Rogers said the machine worked fine when she and others tried voting on it. No one else had reported problems with the voting machines malfunctioning.

    Rogers suggested the issue may have been caused by not hitting the button directly or tapping with more than one finger. Stevens was aware the machine had to be operated a certain way.

    I know how to do the voting,” Stevens said.

    Despite no problems with that particular machine, Rogers decided to take all precautions. She contacted the vendor and had them inspect the device.

    “Because of her issue, we had that machine recalibrated,” Rogers said. “I am certain the equipment works properly.””

    Again with the “recalibrated”. You tell me how any machine can just up and decide to register a Romney vote for Obama? It’s always that way, too: DEFAULTING to Obama. How many voters DIDN’T NOTICE?

    • We know this is deliberate because of the bogus claims of the Romney family being tied to voting machines. Always point the finger at someone else for what you are going to do. This is the Obamaway.

    • That was great Miri. From the mouth of babe’s – Redistribution, it’s NOT FAIR! amazing that 8 year old’s understand that when you work what you have earned is yours too keep for the work you did. But sadly a few of their parents in that crowd more than likely don’t or refuse to ever understand that fact. Cute kids, I hope they forever remember what they just learned.

      • I had hope for America’s future because these children, despite the indoctrination they get in school, so innocently immediately understand the fundamental unfairness of taking from the productive and ambitious to GIVE to the unproductive and lazy. Even the recipients of the candy said it wasn’t fair!

        Then I remembered that usually “trunk or treat” takes place at CHURCHES. So I figured these aren’t your typical kids, but more likely kids not indoctrinated by the left or at least kids with a good sensible grounding at home. I would bet that if you did that same kind of sting in other neighborhoods, you would hear the recipients of the candy saying it’s “fair” to take someone else’s candy and give it to them.

    • “WARSAW (Reuters) – Polish investigators found traces of explosives on the wreckage of the government jet that crashed in Russia two years ago, killing Poland’s president and 95 others, daily Rzeczpospolita reported on Tuesday.

      Without citing sources, the newspaper said prosecutors and explosive experts who examined the remains of the plane in Russia found signs of TNT and nitroglycerin on the wings and in the cabin, including on 30 seats.

      Traces of explosives were also found in the area where the Tu-154 crashed during its approach to a small airport near the Russian city of Smolensk on April 10, 2010, the daily reported. …

      Russian investigators had blamed the Polish crew for trying to land in heavy fog, while their Polish counterparts also said the airport controllers should not have allowed the plane to attempt an approach.

      Some rightist groups in Poland, including main opposition party Law and Justice, had rejected the findings and suggested the crash could have been an assassination of President Lech Kaczynski and political and military leaders who flew with him. …

      The investigators have not ruled out the possibility that the traces of explosives come from unexploded bombs dating back to World War Two that could have remained in the area where the aircraft came down, the newspaper said.”

      That last sounds like a stretch worthy of an Obamanation rationalization. No wonder Barry and Putin get along so famously.

      • Test data would be different for wwII bombs than for something concocted today. There is no way it is not known. Uh, hello, landing on a bomb and being exploded upon from the outside of the plane is different in appearance and result than from an explosive inside the plane. Of course their is definitive results that don’t leave room for “could be”.

  3. http://washingtonexaminer.com/obamacare-exempts-millions-prisoners-illegals-welfare-recipients/article/2512205#.UJFNyFH-D0c

    “In just 14 months, Americans will be required to prove that they have federally “qualified” health insurance or face an Obamacare tax of $695 to $2,085. That is unless you are in prison, below the poverty line, or are an undocumented immigrant, according to the anti-tax group Americans for Tax Reform.

    When added together, those three groups total up to one-sixth of the nation’s population of 314 million: 218,929 are in federal prisons, 12 million are illegals and 42 million are below the poverty line and eligible for welfare, though some fit into all three categories, according to federal reports.

    ATR highlighted the groups eligible from the mandate to get health insurance in a mock Internal Revenue Service form they developed to show the extra paperwork Americans will be required to fill out once the full Obamacare law kicks in, January 2014. It is based on testimony from the IRS given in September that said, “taxpayers will file their tax returns reporting their health insurance coverage, and/or making a payment.”

    Based on other IRS requirements, ATR said that Americans will have to show that they have health insurance “qualified” by the Department of Health and Human Services. They will also have to disclose if they were covered by a qualifying plan during the year and for how long. And they could be subject to penalties and interest on unpaid Obamacare taxes for periods they were not covered.

    Their mock form includes groups qualifying for exemptions from the Obamacare health insurance mandate and tax. “Classes of individuals who are exempt from the mandate include but are not limited to: those serving sentences in the federal penitentiary system; those persons not legally able to work in the U.S.; welfare recipients (since they are below the poverty line); and those qualifying for an HHS-granted religious exemption,” said ATR, citing section 1501 of the Affordable Care Act that also exempts many others, including native Americans.”

    We’ve noted before that the religious exemption means that MUSLIMS don’t have to prove they have insurance or pay any penalty for not having insurance.

    So it sounds as if Obamacare is a classic example of a violation of the Constitution in that all are not equal before the law. It sounds as if Obamacare MANDATE and PENALTY applies only to U.S. Citizens who obey the law, who work for a living to support themselves and (unspoken) are WHITE.

    • If every Republican just did not answer the questions on the IRS forms, and refused to pay fines, just what would happen? Can’t put all in jail because there would go the workforce and the Takers cannot replace us; simply not qualified. What then? Add to this all Republican business owners refuse to garnish wages for those unpaid fines, what happens then? The company’s get fined and they don’t pay? Ok. That leaves all workers in jail and no companies. It is time we started acting like the revenue we are! The best scenario would be the governement would take over all the businesses that did not comply and/or pay fines when owners walked away from them. Gov would then hire all those they promised jobs to but don’t know a thing about business or holding a job. While the gov is trying to be successful all the misplaced people from business and individuals start living in our own alternative universe with one another. Oh, yes we can. Not that far fetched. “I stand with America. Not with Tyranny.” “Yes, we can survive Tyranny”

      • I used to think on this same scenerio. Especially now with grass root organizing, we could cause a whole wave with everybody in unisen refusing to pay all sorts of fines.

        • “Just say NO” I also think the time is ripe for employers large and small, including small business to organize and decide they are no longer going to be tax agents for the government and will no longer withhold confiscate employees earnings and turn over to the government. They also, no longer being agents of the IRS, will not report employees wages/earnings as that is asked of each taxpayer on the 1040. The time is ripe. I think it would actually happen as part of a non-violent revolution if Obama were to win the election. I think it should happen no matter who gets in.

          • You are right too Hoot…being a tax collector is an illegal act if you aren’t a federal employee. Evidently you’ve read about this too. Yeah, no matter who gets in….a revolution and then we can tell Burnanke and Geithner to stick their calculators where the sun don’t shine.

    • While JOBs has been and will be the summit of this era….everytime they bring it up, no matter which side, a lot of things go thru my mind. We wouldn’t have to work all day, both family members working, paying baby sitters, paying extra tax dollars and fees for every bodily function of our lives, pay for high cost of everything if we weren’t in debt to banks, bank cards, the tax man, corporations who run people off their land so they can use it to supposedly feed the world and more . We wouldn’t need that damn social security except that we’re made to owe somebody.Most everyone is a survivor or the government and those special elite hidden people could not use us. Think about it…because most everyone can do for themselves if need be, those in high places think you need to be enrolled in the system so you can pay them for your rights to survive. OK, I’ve had one beer and it’s gone to my head. I’m going to eat my eggplant parm I baked.

  4. Happy Halloween!!!!!! 🙂

  5. MUSLIMS don’t have to prove they have insurance or pay any penalty for not having insurance.
    Well that SUX. but not surprising. 🙄

  6. I understand they get to pat themselves down at Airports too.
    And they pay no interest on loans. 😯

  7. Every one spread this around Please!!!!! Watch that the machine does not change your vote,
    Three States now reporting changing votes
    😯

    • Did anyone ever read that post I put up that someone sent me about Biden’s son being on the board of that Brookfield (Canadian company) company in New York that got huge amount of stimulus money that will be responsible for the voting machines and vote counting in Wisconsin?
      I don’t think anyone really ever reads much of what I post. It gets long gone,but I thought it was important.

      • I feel the same way, alfy. Especially when people post things that I already posted. I remember reading about Biden’s son. There are far too many such connections to the voting machine fiasco. I am old-fashioned. I think ALL votes should be by paper ballot so they can be verified. I also think we should make people dip their fingers in ink, like they do in the Middle East. That way, we KNOW people aren’t double voting.

        • I forgot about the ink thing. And since you responded, thanks…Ok if youve come across the Biden deal good, at least if something weird goes down in Wisconsin we’ll know where to start looking.

    They’re saying Christie might be positioning himself to run for president in 2016. This will NOT help him, especially if it helps Barry. Rasmussen or Caddell, on Hannity last night, called Christie’s handing Barry this photo op is “inexplicable” for a guy who pretends to support Romney. Hannity logically asked WHY Christie didn’t also INVITE ROMNEY to tour the devastation. GOOD FREAKING QUESTION. I hope Romney, when he’s president, remembers. Person non grata, imho.

    • I think Romney knows it’s going to be a higher power that will get him elected in the middle of all this turmoil. If he does win the trailer trash will blow over just like all hurricanes. The landscape will never be the same but there’s still forgiveness and love left in this strange chaotic world.
      I think I noticed just how pitiful Obama was today. I am sure the devastation had an effect of him as it would anyone, and seeing people helping each other and really caring about complete strangers. I think this may be something rare in Obama’s life…reality, real caring, volunteering with one another without a government mandate. He said all the right things and had to discreetly cover his political a–, but I really thought there was something vacuous in his speaking…it suddenly dawned on him that he really could become human, but he didn’t know these feelings he was having, a sense of belonging to somethin bigger than himself, the heartwarming emotions of people caring for but losing something they call HOME; you think Obama knew what that felt like before this? Maybe I read too much into his behavior but he seemed as if he didn’t know how it felt to be sincere for once.

      • I guess I was saying something vacuous in his speech was…there seemed to be an awkwardness and I couldn’t help but think about that huge vacum in his heart had just got a huge witness pump to real people with real feelings…even from the Jersy Mayor too.

        • Course I could be mistaking his awkward demure behavior for sheepishness and guilt over BENGHAZIWeen!!
          There’s a few more emails out that went to Hillary Clintons office about a month prior to Ghazigate asking for some more security and saying things were deteriorating. A couple of Senators are going to try and talk to people Tunisia to get the guy detained for questioning. They have said couldn’t they send questions to him in writing, but they’re not satisfied with that. They want some answers pronto. They’re working on negotiations with Tunisia now, despite what this administration does the senators are trying to do their own investigations and they want to hear from Obama Pronto too. Obama’s suppose to be on the campaign trail again tomorrow. Hmmmm

      • Maybe he’s found his next calling. He can be US Ambassador to Natural Disasters. Like Carter and Habitat for Humanity. Interesting that his compassion was slow to show itself in 2010, when 158 people died in that tornado in MO. It took him a week to visit MO, a “red state” that’s going big time for Romney. This year, a week before the election, he’s there in NJ the next day! Such feeling. Or maybe it’s because of the “color” makeup of the people in Joplin versus New Jersey. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/10/it-took-obama-a-week-to-get-to-joplin-in-2010-it-took-him-a-day-to-get-to-new-jersey-in-2012-a-week-before-the-election/ It also took him 2 weeks to visit the Gulf after the oil spill, and he never visited Tennessee after the flood of 2010. Or Texas after the wildfires, according to Gateway Pundit. I remember a horrific ice storm in Kentucky, early in his term, that he also ignored. Gee, red states are ignored. Not subject to his compassion.

    • Hi gals, been reading but too busy to comment. Love, your comments and added info. My gut says not to trust Christie. Remember when he spoke at RNC and people said to watch for that speaker, he is usually the next candidate the RNC will put up? If the RR team does a great job and the left doesn’t destroy them then I say they will get another term. So much to turn around.
      Back to Christie, I can’t believe he did that. I don’t think SANDY is going to help Barry. Nothing can help Barry at this point.

  9. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1012/83108.html
    Don’t mess with Iowa, either. They’re threatening to arrest the UN poll watchers, too!

    And Biden said you’ll be voting for him in 2016. Will he run on the ticket with Christie? 🙂

    • Hooray for that, I’m wondering if The UN thinks they’re going to be needed in these weathered states. Man I pray for it not to be chaos or forstalled voting.

    • I doubt DNC will support Biden. Unless they all start a campaign from that place in the song…”..they’re coming to take me away…ha ha. They might all go crazy when Barry loses. And I can’t wait to see their faces when all is said and done!

      • Well, he does know where all the bodies are buried. There’s a REASON why he’s still VP, despite everything, unless Barry keeps him around for the same reason kings had court jesters. It also feeds into his and Mooch’s attitude about whites in general. Vicarious thrill to have an idiot for a thrall and Minion in Chief.

  10. Good for Texas and Iowa. hope all the States do this 🙂

    PHOTO ID ……. or your great idea Miri … dip OUR fingers in Glow
    in the DARK (rainbow?) & we’d still be safe walking late at night! … or
    Black Light Stampers … that would beep if you cheated…? lets get
    a patent …. it’s all possible…. & needed!

    • part of your idea is priceless . Glowing fingers…what a cheery way to vote. Other countries like Costa Rico, lots of S. American countries make voting almost holiday affair. They honk horns wave, get free taxi rides to vote. They’d love your idea of glow in the dark fingers or rainbow colors of their flags. You’re onto something Zen. Why not make something about the right to vote and voting a glorious(and identifying) proposition. A Patent indeed.

      • Always has bothered me we get MLK day off of work but not voting day, which should be a holiday. There should be VoteDay sales, VoteDay parties, VoteDay parades, etc., Thanksgiving and VoteDay could actually be combined.

  12. no biggie… but you all do inspire me to stay hungry & foolish… life is
    better in Flip Flops… Refuse to sink…In order to be irreplaceable one

    & LC used my BlackHawkDown today… how cool is that! Happy Halloween & shooting starts to you all…I’m a good girl I am. How can we NOT WIN!

  13. Off Topic. This is posted on facebk by libs promoting the abolishing of the electoral vote. How to explain each State has equal representation and regardless of the amount of people in the state. Otherwise the smaller, less popular states actually have no say in the president as the denser populated will always win. Why would a territory have wanted to sign up to be part of the United States if they were just going to have their resources (including people resources) taken away and have no vote because they were minimally populated? I do not know how to verbalize succinctly a response. Any suggestions? https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=sHEDXzOfENI

    • I didn’t view the You Tube, but from what you wrote I would guess this has to do with Soros, and the push to abolish the electoral vote and use the popular vote to elect representatives. The Left has been working very hard to get this passed in multiple states.

  14. http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-57542510-38/court-oks-warrantless-use-of-hidden-surveillance-cameras/

    “Police are allowed in some circumstances to install hidden surveillance cameras on private property without obtaining a search warrant, a federal judge said yesterday.

    CNET has learned that U.S. District Judge William Griesbach ruled that it was reasonable for Drug Enforcement Administration agents to enter rural property without permission — and without a warrant — to install multiple “covert digital surveillance cameras” in hopes of uncovering evidence that 30 to 40 marijuana plants were being grown. [SO MUCH FOR NO TRESPASSING! HOW CAN THIS POSSIBLY JIBE WITH STATE LAWS?]

    This is the latest case to highlight how advances in technology are causing the legal system to rethink how Americans’ privacy rights are protected by law. In January, the Supreme Court rejected warrantless GPS tracking after previously rejecting warrantless thermal imaging, but it has not yet ruled on warrantless cell phone tracking or warrantless use of surveillance cameras placed on private property without permission.

    Yesterday Griesbach adopted a recommendation by U.S. Magistrate Judge William Callahan dated October 9. That recommendation said that the DEA’s warrantless surveillance did not violate the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits unreasonable searches and requires that warrants describe the place that’s being searched.

    “The Supreme Court has upheld the use of technology as a substitute for ordinary police surveillance,” Callahan wrote.”

    Common sense would seem to dictate that it is UNREASONABLE for federal agents to TRESPASS on private property for the purpose of installing surveillance cameras to spy on citizens on their own property. This does not make citizens “secure” in their property, as demanded by the Constitution. How in the HELL can this stand?

    “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

    Trespassing without permission to spy on citizens IS UNREASONABLE. TAKE A FREAKING POLL!!!

    • That’s even better for cheaters than when they took the hours they needed to rig up enough votes to put JFK over the top in Chicago.

  17. From Ulsterman’s Wall Street Insider…frightening.HERE NOW IS THE UPDATE WSI RECEIVED VIA A SOURCE FROM CHICAGO THIS MORNING:

    Valerie Jarret – “After We Win This Election, It’s Our Turn. Payback Time.”

    A rep from Jarrett office was in today. She gave us a finish line pep talk and then afterwards, heard her saying how Jarrett is very excited about a 2nd term agenda and a big part of that agenda is to punish everyone who opposed them during the first term and the campaign. Strange that everything was “Ms. Jarrett wants this, and Ms. Jarrett is looking forward to that”. You hardly heard Obama’s name mentioned by her which I guess reinforces what people are saying. Valerie Jarrett really is the power in the White House. I know that when her representative showed up it was like royalty was visiting. All the big dogs were lined up to meet her and acting real friendly and they gave us a heads up an hour before and told us we better “put on a good show” while she was here.

    The part that really stuck out to me was when I overheard the rep say that Jarrett told them, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go. She was talking directly to about three of them. Sr. staff. And she wasn’t trying to be quiet about it at all. And they were all listening and shaking their heads and smiling while she said it. Pretty creepy.

    Why are they so confident about winning next week? We aren’t getting any numbers in the office that has any of us knowing Obama will win. It will be close. Jarrett and her people seem so confident. Why is that? Do you have any information on why she is so confident? I’m worried. Benghazi was supposed to play big this weekend. That is what everybody here was bracing for last week. You could really tell the staffers were freaking out. Now nobody is talking about it. Like it was never a concern. Like it never even happened. Don’t you have people to help with that? What happened? You said it was going to be a game changer. I told some others it would be and now I’m kind of hanging out there. Not the only one around here who got a real bad vibe after the Alex thing. Help! Need some good news after today!

    • I can’t wait to see their big bubble burst shortly! They go by ” the best defense is a good offense.” If they aren’t worried, they should be. They are trying to keep up a good front for their minions.

  18. “William Steve Southerland, II – (born October 10, 1965) – is the U.S. Representative for Florida’s 2nd congressional district. The district includes most of the eastern Florida Panhandle, from Panama City to the state capital, Tallahassee. He is a member of the Republican Party.”

    ==========
    “Rep. Southerland On Obama’s Identity Fraud: Blames Harry [Reid]; The “People” Need To Impeach Obama?”

    Published on Nov 1, 2012 by BirtherReportDotCom

    • You impeach him on November 6th! Harry Reid wouldn’t allow an impeachment to go forward. If Harry wouldn’t allow a budget in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, do you think he would let that go through? Let’s clean up our mess on Nov. 6. An impeachment would be a “form”, and a form is different from function. An impeachment would look good in form, but it wouldn’t be allowed.
      *****
      Most likely the same reason the other impeachment was never acted upon when Obama originally went into Libya without Congressional approval. That didn’t make much noise either. Still I would have liked to have seen them at least try in “form.” Citizens would have forced Harry to do something…don’t you think? Well, probably not, after seeing how they pushed Obamacare.

    • “We gotta get back to doing the right thing.” I agree. The right thing is to follow the Constitution. I don’t care if Reid picks up the Articles of Impeachment, but it will bring PUBLICITY to the issue. We can’t “impeach him on Nov. 6,” if they CHEAT. They do and they will. The Republicans need to “discipline” the DemoncRATS, make them APOLOGIZE to the people, and clean up the mess THEY MADE with this president. People like Southerland, by not speaking out, are the ones who made this mess. We the People have no “standing”. But Mr. Southerland would have standing, if he would try. IF the worse happens and Obama is again selected and electors again go to cast electoral votes for him that are ILLEGAL, who will STAND UP who has STANDING?

  20. http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/01/obamas-inauguration-reverend-says-anti-white-slam-was-a-joke/

    Now this is infuriating. Post racial.

    “Longtime African-American civil rights advocate Rev. Joseph Lowery told The Daily Caller that he was joking when he told a get-out-the-vote event that all whites will go to hell.

    “It was a joke” that was supposed to show the perspective of a young militant, Lowery told TheDC. “When I said it, I said it was a joke, I identified it as a joke.”

    However, attendees at the African-American event Oct. 27 were reportedly horrified.

    An Oct. 31 article in the Monroe County Reporter newspaper reports that Lowery, who gave the benediction at the January 2009 inauguration of President Barack Obama, told the audience of up to 300 African-Americans “that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell. Then he mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, he said, he is back to where he was.”

    Lowery’s aide described the Oct. 27 statement as a reaction to bias against Obama: “He was saying [that] based on all of the hatred that’s going on” towards the president, Helen Butler, the executive director of Lowery’s Georgia-based Coalition for the People’s Agenda, told TheDC. [The white devil made him do it.]

    He just felt that he should feel the way he used to feel,” Butler, who attended the rally, explained.

    The speech, she said, was also intended to boost turnout in the presidential election.

    Obama and his political allies are relying on high minority turnout to counter a sharp drop-off in support among mainstream white voters.

    He was trying to get people motivated to ensure they go and vote…. [and] he did make the point that there is a lot of hatred in this country,” she said.”

    Yes, there is a lot of hatred in this country. There’s a lot of racism, too. Lately, as we see, it is coming from the likes of Lowery and Ms. Butler.

    Playing the race card to motivate people to vote. Imagine that. Drumming up hatred for whites by saying they’re all going to hell, just to “motivate” blacks to vote. What a statesman! What a Christian! What a phony! Check out this statement by the “Reverend” Lowery, too:

    ““I don’t know what kind of a n—– wouldn’t vote with a black man running,” Lowery also told the audience in the St. James Baptist Church in Forsyth, Ga., according to the Reporter.”

  21. This will sicken you: http://weeklystandard.com/blogs/claim-hail-obama-chants-first-lady-rally_660016.html

    “At campaign a rally featuring First Lady Michelle Obama in Daytona, Florida, there were reportedly chants of “Hail Obama,” according to one local reporter. Mike Synan, a local reporter at WOFL FOX 35, writes on Twitter:

    Crowd for #FLOTUS event in Daytona now chanting “Hail Obama”. Wow, just wow #fox35

    — Mike Synan (@msynan) November 1, 2012

    Minutes later, he repeated his claim:

    True. Would not lie. Chanting “Hail Obama” RT @jeffreybillman: @msynan For real, or are you just Drudge-baiting?

    — Mike Synan (@msynan) November 1, 2012″

  22. This statistic ought to go over well in the rust belt swing states:

    Two-thirds of those who have found employment under President Obama are immigrants, both legal and illegal, according to an analysis that suggests immigration has soaked up a large portion of what little job growth there has been over the past three years.

    The Center for Immigration Studies is releasing the study Thursday morning, a day ahead of the final Labor Department unemployment report of the campaign season, which is expected to show a sluggish job market more than three years into the economic recovery.

    That slow market, combined with the immigration numbers, could explain why Mr. Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney have struggled to find a winning jobs message in some of the country’s hardest-hit postindustrial regions.

    It’s extraordinary that most of the employment growth in the last four years has gone to the foreign-born, but what’s even more extraordinary is the issue has not even come up during a presidential election that is so focused on jobs,” said Steven A. Camarota, the center’s research director, who wrote the report along with demographer Karen Zeigler.

    His numbers are stark: Since the first quarter of 2009, the number of immigrants of working age (16 to 65) who are employed has risen 2 million, from 21.2 million to 23.2 million. During the same time, native-born employment has risen just 1 million, to reach 119.9 million.”

    • Who will they blame now? This is what Big Government (aka the Obama Communist STATE) has wrought: A bunch of dependent people who cannot look to the future, who cannot plan for themselves, who cannot take care of themselves, who are totally dependent (as Barry wants) upon the government. As I posted yesterday, Gateway Pundit pointed out that it took Barry a week to go to Joplin, where an entire city was wiped from the map. The people there pulled together, took care of each other, helped each other, and survived. They didn’t whine that Barry wasn’t there. They probably didn’t WANT him there! NYC, since they will probably vote to put Barry back in the WH, had better get used to those Jimmie-Carter-like GAS LINES. Remember the ’70s? I do. Barry wants gas to be $9 a gallon. Speaking of Nevada, Zenway, here are two stories:

      http://www.lvrj.com/opinion/benghazi-blunder-obama-unworthy-commander-in-chief-176736441.html (A mainstream media organization?)

      “Benghazi blunder: Obama unworthy commander-in-chief

      U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans died in a well-planned military assault on their diplomatic mission in Benghazi seven weeks ago, the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. So why are details surfacing, piecemeal, only now?

      The Obama administration sat by doing nothing for seven hours that night, ignoring calls to dispatch help from our bases in Italy, less than two hours away. It has spent the past seven weeks stretching the story out, engaging in misdirection and deception involving supposed indigenous outrage over an obscure anti-Muslim video, confident that with the aid of a docile press corps this infamous climax to four years of misguided foreign policy can be swept under the rug, at least until after Tuesday’s election.

      Not only did the White House do nothing, there are now reports that a counterterrorism team ready to launch a rescue mission was ordered to stand down.

      The official explanation for the inadequate security? This administration didn’t want to “offend the sensibilities” of the new radical Islamic regime which American and British arms had so recently helped install in Libya.

      The official explanation for why Obama administration officials watched the attack unfold for seven hours, refusing repeated requests to send the air support and relief forces that sat less than two hours away in Italy? Silence.

      An open discussion of these issues, of course, would lead to difficult questions about the wisdom of underwriting and celebrating the so-called Arab Spring revolts in the first place. While the removal of tyrants can be laudable, the results show a disturbing pattern of merely installing new tyrannies – theocracies of medieval mullahs who immediately start savaging the rights of women (including the basic right to education) and who are openly hostile to American interests.

      This administration is an embarrassment on foreign policy and incompetent at best on the economy – though a more careful analysis shows what can only be a perverse and willful attempt to destroy our prosperity. [A breakthrough? FINALLY someone in the mainstream points this out?] Back in January 2008, Barack Obama told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle that under his cap-and-trade plan, “If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them.” He added, “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” It was also in 2008 that Mr. Obama’s future Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, famously said it would be necessary to “figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe” – $9 a gallon.

      Yet the president now claims he’s in favor of oil development and pipelines, taking credit for increased oil production on private lands where he’s powerless to block it, after he halted the Keystone XL Pipeline and oversaw a 50 percent reduction in oil leases on public lands.

      These behaviors go far beyond “spin.” They amount to a pack of lies. To return to office a narcissistic amateur who seeks to ride this nation’s economy and international esteem to oblivion, like Slim Pickens riding the nuclear bomb to its target at the end of the movie “Dr. Strangelove,” would be disastrous.”

      Second story: http://www.rgj.com/article/20121101/NEWS19/121101029/Republican-National-Committee-alleges-voting-machine-troubles-Nevada-other-swing-states?nclick_check=1

      “Secretary of State Ross Miller called claims of voter machine irregularities in Nevada by the Republican National Committee “irresponsible and unfortunate” on Thursday. [They don’t want you to use paper ballots, people. They want you to use those machines.]

      Miller, a Democrat, was responding to a letter sent to his office and election officials in five other states on Thursday in which the RNC alleged voting machines cast ballots for President Barack Obama, a Democrat, when the vote was intended for his Republican challenger, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. …

      The RNC letter expressed concerns that the voting machine problems were the result of “miscalibration and hyper-sensitivity of the machines.” Letters were sent to officials in Ohio, North Carolina, Colorado, Kansas and Missouri.

      The RNC asked officials to recalibrate voting machines on Election Day and instruct poll workers to remind voters to double-check their votes. … [What would be the objection to this? Common sense for anybody who really cares that the vote is accurate and every vote counts. Right?]

      “While it is possible for a voter to inadvertently select a candidate, it is not possible for the machine to automatically select a candidate,” Miller said in his statement.” [OUTRIGHT LIE. If the machine is NOT calibrated correctly, the machine can register the wrong selection. Otherwise, their claims that they’ve “recalibrated” machines means nothing. If it’s impossible, then no amount of calibration will help, will it?]

      In other words, the DemoncRATS are calling the voters liars and saying the Republicans are on a witch hunt with a conspiracy theory.

      Here’s the rule: Any time they call it (or infer that it’s) a conspiracy theory and feign outrage, the truth is with the conspiracy theorists.

  26. How tacky. How shallow, How adolecent. The media goes on a gush about the president stepping it up as commader in chief of the Sandy aftermath –Never mind that he is not CIC over civilians or over States. He is CIC to the military; to the rest he is President. Anyways, back to tacky, shallow, and adolecent — The media praises his Sandy CIC efforts and now he sports a new swag and a bomber jacket of some sort. Now that he has assured the country, as to relief efforts and as CIC, with his encouraging words, “We leave no one behind” he has the creditiblity to wear his new swag and jacket with respect. NOT. In a word, BENGHAZI. In two words, AMERICANS DEAD. In three words, THIRTY-SEVEN MORE OBANDONED. (Only good at playing CIC)

    • He reminds me of Dukakis. Here he comes to save the day! Barry the Mighty Mouth. Looks like a kid who doesn’t want to take off his Halloween costume. Mission accomplished? The blacks in NYC don’t think so. They’re incensed that “they’ve” forgotten about them and that the marathon is going on! In the meantime, didn’t they ridicule Christian ministers for saying similar things?

      http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2226642/Muslim-clerics-say-Sandy-Gods-way-punishing-America-anti-Muhammed-film.html

      “‘Some people wonder about the hurricane in America and its causes,’ Egyptian hardline cleric Wagdi Ghoneim tweeted twice this week in the aftermath of the storm.

      ‘In my opinion, it is revenge from God for the beloved prophet,’ he added, alluding to the film. … In Saudi Arabia, prominent cleric Salman al-Audah said the storm, which killed more than 140 people, was a wake-up call for Americans to convert to Islam.”

      • Just a way to cover for the Brother, Obama, a cleric bringing up a video that has no bearing on attacks and is not a concern.

        Saw race has been cancelled.

  27. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/lets-win-this-motherfuer-white-house-official-delivers-shock-speech-at-phone-bank-rally/

    More adolescent profane language from a member of the Obama administration:
    “In a speech to a packed room of Obama for America phone bank volunteers at the Democratic National Committee headquarters Thursday night in Washington, D.C., Special Assistant to the President Kareem Dale said that people with disabilities are going to be “absolutely killed” under the proposed policies of Mitt Romney and delivered a strong message to the crowd: “let’s win this motherfu**er.””

  28. For what it’s worth, WH Insider:
    http://theulstermanreport.com/2012/11/01/white-house-insider-governor-romney-is-gonna-win-this-thing/

    Romney will win unless Barry steals it; which, of course, they plan to do. As a former DemoncRAT, WHI admits they cheat and he helped them cheat in the past. Implied by double voting: Early or absentee and then again at the polls.

  29. Rush Limbaugh correctly points out that in order to help the people on the East Coast, Barry and Big Sis Napolitano have to WAIVE AND IGNORE government regulations! In other words, to help they have to get rid of the BIG GOVERNMENT that they promote!

    Jack Cashill again, this time revealing the anti-Semitic, Koran-inspired symbolism in the other poem Barry wrote in college–the one that seems so simple-minded and childish: http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/10/did_obama_write_anti-semitic_poetry.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=facebook

    “the poem’s most conspicuous symbols, apes and figs, are mentioned in the Qur’an. … there are at least three passages in the Qur’an in which Jews are denounced as “apes.” … “Underground” is not about swine. It is about apes — belligerent, boastful apes at that.

    In 1981, when Obama submitted this poem, he was plotting his forthcoming summer trip to Pakistan, a Muslim country. By all accounts, given his education in Indonesia and his choice of friends in America, he was a knowledgeable fellow-traveler in the world of Islam. By 1981, too, Israel had emerged as a source of evil in the eyes of both radical Muslims and the international left.

    The reference to “figs” strengthens O’Hagan’s case that the “apes” refer to Jews, or at least to Israeli Jews.

    Writes Muhammad Asad, author of The Message of The Qur’an, “The ‘fig’ and the ‘olive’ symbolize, in this context, the lands in which these trees predominate: i.e., the countries bordering on the eastern part of the Mediterranean, especially Palestine and Syria.

    Readers of “Underground” are left with only two real choices. They can write it off as a silly undergraduate poem about apes that step on figs, as I originally did, or they can interpret it as an allegory. If the latter, it seems altogether possible that the poet believes that these warlike apes, the Jews of Israel, are exploiting, even despoiling the land in which they have settled. Note that the apes both “eat” the figs and are “stepping on” them.”

    He goes on to give the historical context and tells where those “grottoes” are that the poem speaks about.
